The meeting of the French Associa tion for tho Advancement of Scienct at Algiers In April was rather more festive than philosophical.

At a conversaiono of the Societj of Telegraph Engineers on the occasion of I'rulTcssor llelinholt.'s recent visit to I ndoii, Mr. Latimer Claik exhibited an unpublished letter from Sir Isaac Newton, of remarkable interest.

Mark Twain as a Military Man. Mark Twain spoke at the Army of Potomac Itcunion at Hartford, recently. No responded to the toast "The bcneilt of judicious training. He said that ho had been cramming up at West Point, and he discoursed learnedly on military affairs as follows: To begin, gentlemen, when an en gagement is meditated it is best to feel tii enemy first, that Is, If it is night, for, as ono of the cadets explained tome, you do not need to feel him in the day time, because you can see him then. I should never have thought of that, but It is true, perfectly true. In tho day time tho methods of procedure are various, but tho best, it seems to me, is one which was Introduced bv Gen eral Grant. General Grant always sent an activo young man redoubt to recon noitre and get the enemy's bearings. i Rot mis rrora a high oflicer at the Point, who told mo ho used to be a re doubt on General Grant's staff, and he biid done it often. When tho hour for the battle is come, movo to the Geld with celerity fool away no time. Un der this head I was told of a favorite maxim of General Sheridan's. Gen eral Sheridan always said, if the siego train isn't ready, don't wait go oyany trains that aro handy; to get there is tho main thing. Now, that is tho correct idea. As you approach tho field It is letter to get out and walk. This gives you a better chance to disioso of your forces judiciously tor me assault, t.ct your artillery in jxisitioii and throw out stragglers to the right and left to hold your lines of communication against surprise. Seo that every hod carrier connected with a mortar battery is at his post. They to'd mo at tho Point that Napoleon despised mortar batteries and would not use thcrr He said that for real eHUiency ho wouldn't give a hatful of brickbats for a ton of mortar. How ever, that is all he knew about it Eeiythinf being ready for the as sault, you wart to enter tho field with your baggago t d tho front. This Idea was inventd by our rcrowncd guest. General Sherman. They told mo that Ueneral Sherman said that the trunks and baggago make a good protection for the soldiers, but that chiefly they attract tho attention and llvet tho in terest of the enemy, and this gives you an opportunity to whirl the other end of tho column around and attack him in tho rear. I have given a good deal of study to this tactic sinco I learned alout it, and it appears to me it is a rattling good idea. Never fetch on your reserves at tho start This was Napo'con's fust mistake a Water loo. Next, ho assaulted with his Itomh-proofs and ambulances and em brasures, when he ought to have used a heavier artillery. Thirdly, ho retired his light by ri'ixhJ -which uncovered his pickets when his only possibility of success l,iy in doubling up his centre, ii anK iy dark, and throwing out his ihr&tnx ilef rLc by tho lef oblique lo relievo the skirmish line and con fuse tho enemy if such a ma lum vro would confuse htm, and at West Point they said it would. it was ainmt tins time that the EmtHTor had two horses shot under him. I low oftwi you remark of Genencral So-and-So a battle had two or three horses shot under him. General IJurnsido and nany great Eurotean military men. as 1 was informed by a high artillery officer at West Point, have justly char- act eri7.nl this as a wanton waste of projectiles, and he impressed upon me a conversation in the tent of tho Prus sian chiefs at Gravelolte, in the courso of which our honored guest just refer red to General IJurnside observed that if 'you can't aim a horso so as to hit tho general with it, shoot it over him and you may bag something on the other side, whereas a horse shot under a general does no sort of damage I igree cordially with General IJurnside, and heaven knows I shall rejoice to see the artillerists of this land and of all lands ceaso from this wicked and idiot ic custom. When you leave a battle field alwavs leave it in good order. Uemove the wreck anil rubbish and tidy up tho place. However, in tho case of a drawn battle it is neither party's busi ness to tidy up anything. You can h avo tho field looking as if the city gov ernment or rew i ork had bossed the fight When you aro traversing the enemy's country in order to destroy bis supplies and cripple his resources, ycu want to uko along plenty or camp fol lowers. Tho moro tho better. They aro a tremendously effective arm of the service, nnd they inspiro in the foe the liveliest dread. A West Point proffes sor told me that tho wisdom of this was recognized as far back as the Scrip ture times. Ho quoted a verse. Ho said it was from the new revision, and was a littlo different from tho way it mids in tho old one. I do not recol lect the exact wording of it now, but I remember it wound up with something alx)ut such and such a devastating agent being as 'terrible as an army with bummers.' I believe I havo noth ing further to add but this: Tho West Pointers said a private should preserve a respectful attitude toward his supe riors, and should seldom or never pro ceed so far as to offer suggestions tolas general in the field. If tho battle is not conducted to suit him he hail let ter resign. l!y tho etiquette of war it Is ticrtnittcd that nono below tho rank of ticwspa)cr correspondents to dictate to the general in tho field. Driving a Hen. When a woman has a ben to drive into a coop, she takes hold of her skits with loth hands, shakes them quietly towards tho delinquent and says, Shew, There T The hen takes one look at the object to convince herself that It's a wom:ui and then stalks majestical ly into tho coop in perfect disgust at the sex. A m;uo doesn't do that way. He goes out doors and says; "It is singular nolsxly can drive a hen but me," and picking up a stick of wood, hurls it at tho offending biped, and observes: "Get out of thero you thief." The hen im mediately loses her reason and dashes to tho other end of the yard. The man straightway dashes after her. She comes back with her head down, her wings out and followed by an assort mcnt of stove wood, fruit cans and clinkers, with much puffing and a very road man in tho rear. Then she skims up under the barn, and oyer a fence or two, and around the house and U'H-k again to tho coop, and all the while talking ai only an excited hen can talk, and followcu by things con venient for handling, and a man whose coat is on the saw-buck and whose hat is on the ground and perspiration and profanity appear to have no limit Uy this timo tho other hens have come out to toko a hand in the debate and help dodge missiles, and the man says every hen on the place shall be sold in the morning, and puts on his things and goes down tho street, and the woman has every ono of those hens housed and counted in two minutes, and the only sound heard on tho place is the ham. mcring of the oldest boy as he mends mo i rosea picket A Courting in the Old Days. Thirty years ago Michigan people were a frank and truthful set Strang ers could go there and trade horses with their eyes shut, and breach of promise cases were unknown. Folks meant what they said, and when they gave their word stuck to it Exactly thirty years ago this month a widower from New York state ap peared in Lansing on business. That same business carried him over to DeWitt eight miles away. While on the way he stopped at a log farm-house to warm his cold fingers. He was warmly welcomed by the pioneer and his wife, both of whom were well along in years, and after some general talk the woman queried. "Am I right in thinking you are a widower V "Yes." "Did you como out hero to find a wifeV "Partly." "Did anybody tell you of our Susie T -No." Well, we've got as bouncing a girl of twenty-two as you ever set eyes up on. She's good-looking, healthy, and good-tempered, and I think she'll like your looks." "Where is she?" "Over in the woods, here, chopping down a 'coon tree. Shall I blow the horn for her V "No. If youH keep an eye on my horso IH find her." "Well, there's nothing stuck up or af fected about Susie. She'll say yes or no as soon as she looks you over. If you want her, don't be afraid to say so." The stranger heard tho sound of her ax and followed it Ho found her just as tho tree was ready to fall. She was a stout, goodlooking girl, swinging the ax liko a man, and in two min utes he had decided to say: "busie, im a widower from New York stite; I'm thirty-nine years old, have one child, own a good farm and I want a wife. Will you go back home with rne?" She leaned on her ax and looked at him for half a minute, and then re plied: Can't say for certain. Just wait till I get these 'coons off my mind." She sent the tree crashing to earth, and with his help killed five 'coonh, which were stowed away in a hollow. "Well, what do you say?" lie asked, as the last 'coon stopped kicking. "I'm your'n was the reply, "and by the time you get kick from DeWitt I'll have these pelts off and tacked up and be ready for the preachcrP He returned to the house, told the old folks that he would bring a preach er back with him, and at dusk that evening the twain wero married. Hardly an hour had been wasted in courting, and yet he took home one of tho best girl3 in the stote of Michigan A German Invasion. The English papers complain of the invasion or England by vast numbers of educated Germans, who seek posi tions as clerks and music teachers chiefly. The World adds: Tho very few occupations of average education are invaded by swarms of "German ladies of good family," who are as eager and unscrupulous in hunt ing for situations as their countrymen. They profess German, French, Italian, Englisli, music, dancing, Kindergarten, ncoiPe-work, and a host of other accom plishments. Our English governesses stand no chance with them, and are completely beaten out of tho field. These German ladies are generally MirQct from Humburg,"or direct from Hanover." We frequently find the "German lady, well born and highly educated," and direct from o 10 of the above-named places, offering her ser vices as lady help and lady housekeeper for the most moderato sum conceiva ble; and crowds of "German young persons, just arrived, are available a3 nurses, nursery governesses, ladies' maids, cooks and housekeepers, and machinists; many of them, it is adver tised, "would bo content with a very moderate salary, as they cannot speak i-ngtisiu There are various trades here that have been completely ruined by the importation of cheap German gnod3. Tho picture trado is principally in Ger man hands. Tho ranks of labor are crowdexl with German workmen. We havo German architects and German professors of all kinds. German en gineering firms compete successfully with ours. Their cheap contracts aro frequently accepted in preference to those of Englisli firms for works of considerable magnitude; and they not only hnng Ironwork from Germany, but workmen as welt We have every tldng now at the lowest figure, even to the humble German potato, which, it Is asserted, rivals the Irish articlo in quality, as it does In cheapness. And yet wo do not Boycott our Teutonic friends. On the contrary, we hold out our arms and receive them as brothers, though wo stand in danger of bsing ruined by German competition gener ally. These are surly facts which should make the subjects of the Kaiser a little more tolerant of Israeli tish competition. Women as Telegraphers. Tho English government has cm ployed women as telegraphists since January, 1870. Nominations to com pete are given by the postmaster-general. The limits of age are "not under 1 i or over 18." They receive eight shillings a week to begin with, the highest scale of pay being thirty shillings a week, and they work eight hours a day between the hours 8 a.m. and 8 p. m. They form erly worked In separate galleries, but it was found desirable to place them In tho same galleries as the men and boys, and the society and mutual influence has been productive of beneficial re sults. The female telegraphists be long to the class from which assistants behind the counters of shops are re cruited; these posts, however, are open to women of all grades. Great accuracy, general intelligence and quickness are required for the work, which is, a a rule, satisfactorily accomplished. It is deemed inexpe dient to employ females in night work. At the present time 967 women tele graphists are employed by the govern ment in London, Edinburgh, and Dub lin. Cure for Hydrophobia. Mid-CoBUneiit. A German forest-keeper, sixty-two years of age, not wishing to carry to the grave with him an important se crete, has published in the "Leipzig Journal" a recipe he has used for fifty ears, and which he says, has saved several men and a great number of ani mals from death by hydrophobia. The bite must be bathed as soon as possible with warm vinegar and water, and when this has dried, a few drops of muriatic acid poured upon the wound, will destroy the poison of the saliva, and relieve the patient from all present and future danger. FARM NOTES. The man who neirlects to Din-chase a pure bred ram because it costs more than a common one, is the man who alwavs insists that sheep are very un profitable. It does not require heavy pastur es for sheep. They are great foragers. and weeds, leaves, and even stubble enters into their bill of fare. They equal the goat in that respect Some Texas farmers will try the ex periment of importing the Lubbock beetles from Russia. These beetles are very voracious, and live on grasshoppers, locusts, cotton worms, and everything that destroy crops. On the extensive seed farm of Mas Landreth & Sons not a chicken is to be found, but a large number of guinea fowls are allowed the freftlnm nf n,o grounds, which destroy insects of ev ery Kinu, anu are considered invaluable in mis respecu When fattening an animal for lwf let the process be quick as possible. Any stint in feedine will mak ih meat tough and dry. Stall fed animals win ratten more readily than others, and young animals reouire richer fnr.i than older ones. Sheep raising in Texas continues fr be profitable. In 1875 Mr. McKenzin started in the business in Maverick county, with a capital of 1710. As the result of five years business his clear proiits above all expenses are 120,187. During this time he has maintained a family and schooled four children. An experiment of remarkable pa tience is mentioned ia the report of the Aberdeenshiro Agricultural Associa tion (Scotland! for 1879-1880. One hundred and thirty-six thousand grains or oats were shelled by hand in order to determine the proportion of husk to kernel in crops crown on various nieces f land. George W. Hallock, who has a farm of forty-five acres on Long Island, raised last year 15,000 quarts of strawberries, 20,000 heads of cauliflower, 2,300 bushels of onions, 3,000 bushels of potatoes, 173 bushels of wheat, 100 bushels of corn. 3G.O0O cucumbeis, C.300 bushels of Brussels sprouts, 3,500 bushels of carrots and 150,000 cabbages. The largest pasture in the world is on the border between New Mexico and Texas. The Indian Territory bounds it on one side and Colorado on the other.- On one side there are foity miles of periendicular rock fence, and yet it will require two hundred miles of fencing to enclose it The owner, Taylor Mandlin, has sown 1,000 tons of oats. He will feed on it 100,000 head of cattle. For some years the Pennsylvania Railroad company has endeavored to relievo the barren dreariness of the or d'nary railway station by surrounding their country station houses with flow er beds. More attention to this matter is being paid this year than ever be fore, and recently the company pur chased 50,000 plants for the adorn ment of the stitions of the New York and Philadelphia division of the road. The practice is worthy of general imi tation. Most of our readers must be famil iar with the common English sparrow, first introduced into this country a few years ago on account of its supposed insectivorous habits, and now so abun dant; but all may not be aware that another sparrow from England ha3 ta- come acclimatized in the United Stages, though it is by no means so frequently met with. This i3 tho tree sparrow Passer montcnm) which, as its name indicates, prefers country districts to towns and cities. Colonel Skinner, of Colorado Springs Col., had recently added to his Hock of sheep a two-headed lamb. The two heads unite just back of the ears, and the neck and body are of usual size and form. No two of the four eyes are of the same color. A veterinary surgeon was called in but could give no expla nation of the phenomenon. "That's easy enough explained," said a herds man standing by, "there's a whole herd of two-headed mountain sheep grazing over there just west of the peak." Hon. Eli Stilson, of Oshkosh, Wis., and Mr. Chaco, of Racine, have opened up a large stock ranche near San Angela, Tex. Their land amounts to 100,000 acres, on which they have at present over 10,000 sheep. They are constantly adding to the number, and will soon engage in raising cattle. They have just completed an artesian well, finding an inexhaustible supply of water at the distance of 134 feet They will continue to sink wells till every portion of their tract is supplied with stock water. Says the Rural Messenger: The spaying of cows when in full flow of milk is not to be relied upon for per petuating that flow for years. In the best cows, with the strongest propen sity to a heavy yield of milk, the flow may be kept up for a year or two by feeding sloppy, stimulating food all the time, such as brewers or distillers' grains, beets, turnips and other succu lent roots or ensilage with grain; but in spite of all, the milk gradually fails, and if once dried up can never be restored, as in the perfect cow. In cases on which so high an authority as Professor Law experimented, the flow only continued through the flush of summer grass, and failed almost as speedily as in other cows when the sub jects went on to dry winter-feeding. The drawbacks are serious. Little Johnny on Dogs. Bon Frmncltco Wmp. une time mere was a teller Dot a dog of a man in the market, and the dog was a biter. After it had bit the feller four or five times he threw a close line over its neck and led it back to the dog man in the market, and he said to the dog man the feller did: "Ole man didn't you use to have this dog?" The dog man he looked at the dog. then he thot awhile and then he said "WeL yes, I had hkn about haf the time and the other half he had me.
