THE LEWISTON TELLER.
IITV MO COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER,] IBs TELLER hat the target! cirenlation «/ any paper m Earth I da ha. ..........JULY h. 1M3. •CINWT1FIC MISCELL AWT. Science is making rapid progress in utilising what have been regarded as the watte products of the earth. In many parts of Sweden great quantities of the remains of moaeoe which lived centuries ago hare accumulated. It seems quite surprising that this material caa hare any tralsç, but it has been discovered that good paper can be made frnsi it, and a manufactory is reported to hare cotutueae ed making such paper, in various thick - nesses and quantities from tissue to sheets three-quarters of an inch thick. Dr. John V. Shoemaker, iu a late pa per, gives'cutting and shaving, the wear log of head-ooveriags and unelennliness Ss prominest cause« of injury to the hair He alao states that modéra investigation hat demonstrated that thinning and losa « t hair are often due to the defective ac tion of the nervee of nutrition. Fruitful •ourom of this defective action are over tuning of the physical powers, excessive twain work, crowding the mental faculties Of children, lorn of sleep, inocseant cares, anxiety, grief, excitement, sudden depres sion and exaltation of spirits, irregular and hastily bolted meals, lack of rest and recreation, abuse of tobacco and spirits, of taa and coffee, and of all kinds of drugs. At the Montsouris Observatory a care ful study bas long been made of atmos pheric germs. Theso are found to be •Iways present in great number and va tiaty. Their distribution is, however, greatly affected by the season. Of spores belonging to moulds tho following num beta are given us an average for each cubic meter of sir. In January, 7; February 7; May, 12; June,*115; August, 23; Octo bor, 14; December, 7. Of bacteria each cubic meter of air averaged 80. Mona. Barthélémy has reported to the French Academy some observations on the incubation of eggs laid by a ben hav fowl-cholera. All such eggs failed to hatch, althoagh the development of the ambroys commenced and continued for several days an in normal eggs. At a particular stage—just the point when the smbryo begins to assume the special fea tana of the chicken—all growth eeased The blood of the diseased eggs was then found to be full of the miuute organism: peculiar to fowl-ehulera. Messrs. David S. Jordan aud ('has. II Gilbert have prepared a synopsis of all known North American fishes, iueludiug both fresh and salt water species. Their list embraces 1,340 species, belonging to 487 genera and 130 families. From experiments upon insects Herr Hauser, of Erlangen, has showu that their nenn of smell exists in the antenna His farther studies hive convinced him thnt the external organs of smell consist of a seriös of cones or cavities—filled with ■ serous fluid—which may be regarded US out-foldings of the epidermis. To thass are connected staff-cells, from which nerves stretch through tho antranæ to tha braia. The organs are most highly dnvakped in insects which seek food by mnelL Beta and wasps have the greatest number of smelling cavities sad cones, the honey-bee having fourteen or fifteen thousand oavitics and about two hundred ooaes in each auteanm, and the leaf-was|i n somewhat smaller number. Plant-cat tag flias have only five or six cavities to each feilet. Mous. Michalaoi expects to make a thermometer so sensitive as to msasure a thousandth part of a centigrade degree. The expansive substance is hardened rubber. The following conclusions are credited to Mr. Aitkeu as the result of extensive observation sad experiment. Whenever vapor sondeuses in the atmosphere, the nondeasatioa is always made on a solid anciens, which is furnished by particles of dusk Without dust there would be ■either mists nor clouds, and tho super sat u rated air would transform every object upon the earth's surface into a eon danser upon which it would deposit its sxsem of water. Whenever the breath becomes visible in a ould atmosphere it demonstrates the impure and dusty con ditiou of the air. The foam of the sea. meteoric matter, and fires are fertile sources of the dust and impurity. The later Danish explorations in Green land have shown, according to Herr Kink, thnt the southern district of Julianshaab contains about one hundred localities , where ruins of the old Scandinavian set tlemanta are to be seen, the largest and moat conspicuous having as many as thirty rained building*, consisting of atone walls of houses, shelter-walls, etc. It is stated that the builders of these settlement»_ who were list heard from early in the AKceoth century—had at one time more than three hundred farms and villages MttWfeu Disco and Cape Farewell. by l)r. Fol, of Genevia, has tried various narcotics upon marine animals, but the substances produced little effect in small dotes and acted as poisons iu large doses He has, however, discovered that certain invertebrates may be rendered insensible and kept so for days without injury by saturating the water with carbonic acid. I'nre sea water revives the animals. Fish es a*d mollusks do not survive this treat ment, and crustaceans for only a short time. A PLEA FOR THE STEP -MOTHER How many good books do we still take up in which the plots turns on the mach inations of the step-mother, and surely the writers ought to be wiser now. They make the very name bately ; it seems to ring with unkmduess and injustice^ and far be it (Vom us to say that the type is nowhere to be found. (/old beartedness and oppression to the chil dren of the one who bus precceded her in home arc no doubt at times to be met with, but cannot many households tell another talc-—a taie of love and gen tlcncea, and mutual affection and peaoe' And cannot; too, some homes tell a third story, where the sufferer is the one that is looked on as an interlo]>cr? Are there not cases where a man, whose hearth baa been early desolated, and who is left with little ones whom he cannot look after, with a heart still yearning for affection bring« home some warm-hearted girl rea dy to pour out ao stinted measure of love on tho little ones ; aud what does he and she find on settling down to their daily life? That foolish relatives or ignorant •ervants have already poisoned the baby mind against their second mother, and that all her comforts to win their affet tion and trust are blighted by the unholy influence that has been wielded. An: with ether children came, too, often, it stead of being welcomed with brotherly or sisterly lovo, they are greeted with feel iugs of bitterness and jealousy. Nor this mly so where the children naturally perhaps, have a feeling that they may be deprived by a stranger of part of their birthright. Cases tlicro are where bun dreds have been added to the income by such marriages—hundreds not even set tied on the woman who brought them to a comparatively poor household ; and ye she was set aside as a "nobody," treated with cold iusult by step-children and uu defended hy her husband. We might tell of sick-beds watched with all a moth cr's devotion ; of dying hours soothed with all a mother's faithful self-forgetlul ness ; of the young spirit sinking to the grave, clinging with fond affection the representative of the real parent whom it soon was to groet iu the spirit land ; and we turn with just anger from picture laid before us that are as false as they are ill-judged. Into many household must the second mother be brought, or they never could hold together. How many families mast consist of the chil dron of one father, but of two mothers and is it well that the young niiud. sheuld be prejudiced against a state of things in so tuuny eases a necessity ? Hut in the novel of tale a youthful hero or heroine is more intoresting thau he or she suffers under the domestic naif, and that suffering is supposed to be most easily wrought by tho step.mother. Let hope that a truer view will be taken of this relatioaship; that the vulgar fueling with regard te it—a feeling showing it self so plainly in a great many localities that the name stepmother is given to the most painful thing on the finger, (some times called a hang-nail ) may ere long pane away from uinoug us ; and that, al last, the long despised "old maid" is meet ing with juetiee and kindly judgement, the same may Re metis! with uo stinting hand to the long suffering and much slanderous step-mothers. BOOM FOR COLVILLE VALLET. A steam launch, twenty-seven feet Ion; is being loaded on the cars at New Tu couia, to be taken via. Portland to Spo kane Falls, and thence on wheels to the Upper Columbia river above the little dalles. It will be used by Capt. King ston« in waking surveys under diieotion ot Judge D. C. Lewis, and in puving the way for the railway and navigation en terprises of the Captaius Ainsworth. A wagon road from Sushwap lake to Eagli pass, where the Canadian 1'aeile will teueh the Columbia, is in course of con struction, and will soon be finished. H. M McCartney, chief engineer of the Kootenai railway, is in the field with a surveying party and is making progress. Encouraged by the promise of good trans portatioa facilities, many settlers are niov iug into Colville valley, and are paying mg »Vom 1600 to *2,000 for the claims of Frenchmen, Indians and half breeds, which heretofore could have been bought for a aong. Apart from thcalluremcnts of rich gold deposits known to exist iu that region, uo small number are attracted by its agricultural resources. An absent-minded editor wrote a love letter and an editorial at the same time. The love letter he sent nut to be set in type and the editorial, on tariff, to bis girl, fhere was fun at both ends of the route. if THE TEMPEST. We ire crowded in the cabin, Not a «oui would dare to sleep— It waa midnight on the waters. And a storm was so the deep. 'Tis a fearful thing in winter, To be shattered by the blast, Ant to hear the rattling trumpet Thunder, "Cut away the mast 1" So we shuddered there in silenoe— For tha stoutest held their breath, While the hungry sea was roaring, And the breakers talked with death. And thus we sat in darkness, Kacli one busy in his prayers, "We are lost !'' the ( aptam shouted, As he staggered dowu thu stairs. But his little daughter whisfiered, As he took his icy hand, "Isn't (Jod upon the u^ean, Just the same as on the land ?" Then he kissed the little maiden. And we spoke iu better ckeer, Aud we anchored safe in harbor When the morn was sliming clear. • — -Jaulet T. field» An exchange says: "We waut people to Imrrow our paper, and we hope no one will stop reading it because they can t afford a copy, so long as they can beg, steal or borrow one, or the use of it. A paper that. Is borrowed a good deal is like good wheelbarrow, or a good stump puller, or a good kraut cutter—it must have some merit or it would not be want ed." Aad then it boastfully adds: "We know of one womaa who borrowed the reading of this paper for three years and a half, and then became converted aad joined the church. On another man it had nearly the opposite effect; he has borrowed it so long that he would not rent a house in a neighborhood where that paper wasn't taken." MISCELLANEOUS GEO.
