THE LEWISTON TELLER.
CITY AND COUNTT OFFICIAL PAPER, ............DEC. 21, 1882. The TF.LI.ER hits the largett circulation of, any paper in Norik Idaho. SCIENTIFIC MISCELANY. According to Prof. Loomis, about one-fifth of the entire land surface of the globe has an annual rainfall of less than ten inches, and a still larger part has a rainfall so small as to make it valueless for purposes of agriculture except in the limited districts where irrigation is practicable. In North America an almost rainless region is found in Southern California and Ari zona, and in a large district above Siave lake the yearly p.eeipitation of water is only about ten iuches. Mr. F. C. White-house contends that the caverns of the island of Stafla, in cluding the famous Fingal's Cave, are artificial, and created by the hand of man at some very early period. He bases his theory ou the Gothic shape of the roofs, the sheltered location of the caves, the lack of evidence of ero sion of the rocks by water, and the in sufficient mechanical power of the sea waves at that island to excavate such caves. ■"Mr. Grant Allen has drawn this iin .aginary picture of man as evolutionists sifppose him to have existed in inioceno times: ''A tall and hairy creature, rpore or less erect, but with a slouch ing gait, black faced and whiskered with protruding jaws, and large, point ed canine teeth—those of each jaw fitted into an interspace in the opposite row. These teeth, as Mr. Darwin sug gests, were used in tha combats of the males, llis forehead was no doubt low and retreating, with bony bosses underlying the shaggy eyebrows, which gave him a fierce expression something like that of the gorilla. But already, in all likelihood, he had learned to walk habitually erect, and had begun to devrlop a hutnnn pelvis, as well as to carry his Load mors straight." Mons. Paul Bert, the French physi ologist, has discovered that the blood of herbivorous animals acclimatized at high elevations contains a much larger proportion of oxygen than the blood of similar animals living in regions but little above sea-level. It has been found by Mons. I. B. Dumas that water saturated with alum is remarkably officient in extinguishing fires. This property is supposed to be due to the coating it gives to objects wet with it, whisb prevents contact with the oxygen of the air and thus retards combustion. It is reported that, as an experiment, French firemen are to be quite extensively supplied with instruments for throwing such so lutions of alu.m. That great room for improvement in the use of gas exists is shown by Dr C. W. Siemens, who says: "The amount of light given out by a gas flame depeuds on the temperature to wbi#b the particles of solid carbon in ' th» flames are raised, and Dr. Tyndall shown that of the radiant energy set up in such a flame only the twenty fifth part is luuii.ious; the hot products of combustion carry off at least four times as much energy as is radiated, so ,that not more than one-hundredth part of the heat evolved in combustion isconveited into light. This prjpor tion could be improved, however by increasing the temperature of combus tion." Prof. Than, of tha Buds Festh So clot y of Natural Scienco, his, from ex peri menu, formed the opinion that no risk of fire from illuminating gas ex ista bo long as the gas forms less than five per cent, of the atmosphere of a given space; but betwoen five and twelve per cent, it begins to be ignitable, and when it roaches twenty-nine per cent, the liability to explosion is groat. A delicate apparatus used by Prof. Than causes an electric bell to ring if gas is present oven though the quantry be no more thin one half of one per cent. Another ingenious arrangeaient shows the actual p rcentage quantity of the gas, while a "control manometer" re veals the place from which the gas es caped. W idle bees are popularly supposed to be affected by sounds. Sir John Lub bock's researches stem to show that these insects have no power of hearing ordinary noises. If they hear at all they probably distinguish the higher overtones at the vorge of or beyond our ' range of hearing instead of low, loud sounds. Prof. Fellming Jenkin remarks that h is generally supposed that electricity will supersede steam; but what Las tim» far happened is that the work of the engines is employed to produce electric itf, while electricity affords us the liest means yet discovered for disteibuting power. In a recent paper Prof. Willi» De Hass stated that all the mine* of the Lake Superior region give evidence of hariog been worked by a prehistoric race, and that a greater amount of la |, or | lac | been performed by thos* anc ient miners in a soaco of less than 200 acres than 2,000 men could do in tweo ty years in our time. The total eclipse of May 6th will constitute the important astronomical event of 1883. At the points of great est duration this eclipse will I« total for nearly six minutes, but unfortu nately for observers the central line falls entirely over the South Pacific und touches laud only in a small coral island in 130' 25' west longitude and 9 J 57' south latitude. LETTER FROM UNIONTOWR. Uxion'towx, Dec. 13, 1882. Eli. Tkllf.r— Dear Sir: Having canvassed my section of the cdunty on Thorn creek, relative to division of the county, I find it not necessary to whoop the matter up to the people, for the moment I showed them the circular they vociferously whooped it up them selves, and, bless the editor of the Tel ler for taking such an active partin the matter. I found but two men that would not sign it. There were many absent in the timber getting Gre wood and making rails who would have sign ed the circular had they been at home. And so far as I am concernes individ ually concerned I do not wish any more taxes heaped upon myself. I am very respectfully yours, Tiros. Tierney, A GROSS LIBEL. Joseph N. Dolph, Oregon's new Sen ator, will not rank among the million aires of tbs Senate, but he has an in com» of 130,000 per annum, and ia apparently on the high road to fortune. His family consista of his wifs tnd three children, who will accompany him to Washington. Mrs. Dolph is a squaw .—Eastern Ex. The charge that Mrs. Dolph is a squaw, is a base slander and lie. Mrs. Dolph Is the daughter of the late John Mulkey of Corvallis and has no Indian blood in her veins. She was formerly considered the belle of Benton county, Oregon.
