Mobs. Maeagno, tn t at the influence of atmospheric electricity upon grapevine« baa moud an electric current to pnsa through sixteen feet of ft vine from April to September. The wo<id of the branche* thua experimented upon wa* found to •oatain lea. potash and other mineral mat ten than the rent of the vine, but the leave« had (tn excess of potash in th form of liurtrate; the grape* from th •lectriicd Lranchcs furnished more uiu-t, •ou tailed u greater proportion of glue. <sc, and were less acid thau other grapes. A Swan eleetrie lamp "not larger than • bean" ia employed by Mr. J. It. Fayni ia aoveral forms of apparatus for illumin •ting the intcrippr of the body. Au ex hibition of the instruments was made at • late meeting of the Northumberland and Durham Medical Society, of Kng land. Ia ancient Egypt the tax-collector's receipla were inscribed on fragments of broken orockery. From the ltritish Mu Mum collection of these queer documents •—which have been found in large num ber«— a Serie» of translations has been made by Dr. Itirch, »bowing the tax in Egypt under the early Cæsars. Prof. W. A. Rogers has recorded the Curious discovery that th.s microscope may fail to show lint* or errtirs in ruled line* which may be detected with the un aided eye. Japan contains, according to Prof. Julea Marcou, 131 volcanoes, of which 48 are active. The active volcanoes are most numerous between the 138th and the 140th degree of east longitude and the 33d and the 38th parallel of latitude. It is therefore considered by no means Strange that Tokio, located within these limita, should have experiences! 377 earth quake shocks in the five years from 1870 to 1881. Telographie communication being mew established between all the Australian colonies, it is proposed t<e issue at Mel borne a daily weather chart, showing ut inospheric conditions at nine a. m , ami venturing predietit>nN for the following day, especially when cyclone disturbances appear near the coast. These storms usu nlly come from the southern Indian ocean and travel east or northeast, sometimes running ashore and sometimes passing south of Tasmania. Warnings of the approach of the storms arc sent by cable to New Zealand; they seldom fail to reach that region, taking from two to three days fur the passage from Australia. Dr. W. Soper has recommended a mix ture of equal parts of glycerine and cas tor oil, slightly flavored with oil of al monds or lemon, as an agreeable substi tute for castor oil. To ensure the ready mixing of the two liquids the castor oil •kould be very gradually poured into the glycerin« while the latter Is being well Stirred. Dr. Soper pronounces a teaspoon full of this mixture an effective dose. , "The tide of intellectual effort," says the London Timet, "sets strongly in the direction of science, just as at an earlier period it set in the direction of letters." A record of American earthquakes in 1882, prepared by Prof. C. 0. Uoekwood, Jr., includes 72 items, of which 13 arc given as doubtful. The 72 earthquakes are clasaificd geographically as follows: Canada, six; New Knglaud, five, three being doubtful; Atlantic States, six, four being doubtful; Mississippi Valley, eleven, two being doubtful; Pacific Coast, nine teen, three beiug doubtful; Mexico aud Central America, eighteen; Vcuetuela, •ne; West Iudies, five, one being doubt ful, Peru, one. The discovery is reported of large and very rich deposits of petroleum in the npper provinces of the Argentine Repub lic. Une of the deposits, iu the province of Jujury, consists of a lake of about 8S acres in area, aud of unknown depth, which is covered with asphalte. Tin liquid itself is rather thick, of a black color, and is said to be free fruiu disagree able odor The exploring expedition goon to start for Greenland under the command of Baron Nordcnskjold is to have in its out flt a flying or air-sailing machine, which is wow being constructed in Sweden at the expense of Dr. Oscar Dickson.

Teller:—I t isjuat boomiii" h re thi y use, auother d-slye used by thnii is to try to make it app«'ar that th-. money Iff build court house in Moscow is now in the safe of the county treasurer, and Mos cow men arc fourni vain enough to con lr J win voto * b > ,lli * t,lufi h' itmP | Prejudice, not reason, Ls the argument now. The crop* of county Beat election, lalmhood we mean, onFi is that Auditor Evans wrote a letter to Home person here that the Potlatch rond fund wa* expend ed Find that what wa* completed was *i >, had a Meet shod goat oould not travel over it. Many citiz. ns of grad authority, a* the Mirror, who have went over the road, *ay it is a good road and all speak in praise of it. except the Moavow men of illustrated editions, of court house and LewL-ton fame, who use this means to t.-ud it is a fact. For th.- benefit of voters we will say right here, there is no money put up yet and they don't shut up, to falsely influence voters if they can. The end justifies the means used, so it is Mos cow, they do not deny that the parsons deceived the people, for lle-y well know it is a fact. Rig dun is to open his batteiy at Four Mile, Monday m-xt afti-r the shot he gave the people there last fall, in pledges hi- made to them and never thought it worth his while to keep. They are very cautious of Taylor's gun, for there is no certainty where it will shoot as the muzzle is pointing towards Moscow the recoil hits in or about Moscow always. He is to be followed by section two of the heavy Moscow artillery and the right flank is to be kept in supporting |»>silioii by section three. The magazine loaded with the illustrated edition, to Is: fired rod hot into the ranks of the voters. The fil ing will he a fizzle and the shots will fall short of tin- mark and at the general engagement on June 4tli they will* get routed, and scouted ami lose every man ami tie- parsons in hided. What sympa thy they have for the people north, now it is so far away from the county seat, they don't need any increase of mail facil ities—the clodhoppers. The parson tells the people out north that the Lewiston peuple cull them rut» buga 8. of K. Il--» the parsons can pucker up their sancti monious mouths to set oil such Christian vulgarity in language so vain (rout the meek ami lowly followers of the Cross in the Master's name—Yamhill. Hut whom tlm goils destroy they first make mad anil the parsons endure all for thi- Master') sake. Oh Moscow! what sins are coin mittod in thy name und Yamhill. Let us pray brothers while the hat is passed around, and sing the Doxology of M cow is burning. Holy Joe ok Yamhill. WANT SATISFACTION. The town ol Colfax, like almost all other towns in Washington Territory re cently visited by Mr. Yillard, Ls extreme ly anxious to kuow what the ruler of these "outlying provinces" has in store for it, and so, last week, its citixens iippoiuted a committee to vi-it and consult with tin officers of the U. R. 4 N.Co. at Portland The committee appointed consisted of Messrs. E. N. Sweet, Leou Kuhn and Jus. A. Perkins, Mayor ul the town, and those gentlemen left here last night on their mLssiou. The building up of the Oregon Improvement Company's no town on Rebel Flut seems to be the thorn just now piercing the flesh of Colfax, aud notwithstanding the assurance with which the railroad orguu iu that towo has predicted the arrival of Pulhuau palm ears, etc., during the coming summer, they have awoke to the fact that the eit izens of Washington propose ami Yillard disposes. We hope they may be success ful iu gettiug him to dispose us they pro pose.— Democrat. ANOTHER ROAD IN PROSPECT.
