WHAT XBJBX BEAD.
Everybody who knows anything about the
matter knows that the people who live in the
country towns of New Bnglacd are great
readers. An inquiry made by the Spring
field Homestead indloates what is most read
in these towns. It requested its readers to
send in a list of what they considered the
ten "beat" books, and a large number of re
plies were received. The different books
voted for amounted to over a thousand.
There were 146 different book reoelving
one vote apiece. The ten books whioh were
on the greatest number of lists were as fol
lows: Ben Hur, by General : Wallace;
Bamoha,' ' by- "Helen Hunt Jackson; David
Copperfeld, by Charles .Dickens; Ivanhoe,
by Walter Scott; TJnole Tom's Cabin, by
Harriet Beecher Stowe; Little Women, ty
Louis If. Alcott; John Halifax, by Dinah
Mnlook Oraik; Looking Backward, by Ed
ward Bellamy; Jane Eyre, by Charlotte
Bronte, and Adam Beds, by George Eliot.
The second ten are: Little Lord Fanntleroy,
Bible, Longfellow's Poems, Barriers Burned
Away, Pilgrim's Pregress,Shake8peare, Inno
cent Abroad, Tanity Fair, Bobert Eismere,
The Wide, Wide World. Closely following
these are: Stepping Heavenward, Old
Fashioned Girl, Tennyson's Poem, Scarlet
Letter, Whlttler'e Poems, Hitherto, Soottish
Chiefs, The Gates Ajar, Lnoile, and Last
Days of Pompeii.
It will be noticed that there are more books
of fiction in these lists than anything else.
This is not surprising, even it it is not alto
gether encouraging. People who live in tbe
country towns of New England need some
thing to warm their minds and they find it in
Tan TaousiiES in Russia.
Of all the people who are in the king busi
ness the lot of the Czar of all the Bussias is
the most unenviable. For years he has not
dared to trust anybody, and has been obliged
to live in constant and well founded fear of
sudden and violent death. During the last
week he ha been again foroibly reminded
that ha is not popular. It is reported that
he was siok from poisoning. It ia now said
that be has a nervous fever, a relapse of in
fluenza, etc., eto. Explosives have been dis
covered on the gronnds of the imperial
palacs, sod his disaffected subjects,
have been unusually lively and trouble
some. The students have bothered him so
that he ha signified bis intention of closing
all the higher publio educational establish
ments for a year. Thousands have been
arrested, the prisons are overflowing, and
everybody is carefully watched.
Of course this condition of things oannot
last forever, eves in Russia. The situation
ia a terrible one. The Czbt is attempting to
maintain absolute government, and many
of ths most intelligent of his subjects
are trying to make the government more
liberal. The nihilists have decided that
nothing can be done without an entire col
lapse of the present order of things, snd they
are willing to bring this about with
dynamite. They will probably kill the
Osar yet unless be escapes them by
dying. It ia eaid that he is already
Insane. He has had enough to make
him so. It is the fashion, even- in this
country, to hold the Csar responsible for the
disturbances in Bussia, bnt perhaps he is as
muoh to be pitied as blamed. He ia bound to
maintain himself and his government as long
aabe can. How mnch longer the struggle will
last oannot be told, bat the issue of it is not
doubtful. Bassian despotism must give way
Guess the Demoerats must be in charge of
postal affairs in Central America just now.
Having ohanged the name of Aspinwall to
Colon they now propose to enforce popular
recognition of the change by returning as
"misdirected" all letter addressed to Aspin
Methodist ministers have never been over
paid, even in theory, but. aooording to the
investigations of the Rev. J. B. Hamilton in
thirty-five conferences, daring the forty
year from 1833 to 1873 there were deficien
cies in salaries amounting to the enormous
sum of 5,450,000.
India ia s snaky country. While the com'
positors of ths Bombay Gaaette were at work
in the composing room on evening reoently
a full-grown cobra dropped la upon them
through windows in the roof. It was aa
badly soared aa they were and tried to
escape through a window, bat was killed
with an Iron bar.
They take some pills in England. It is
estimated that in that country over five and
half million pills are swallowed daily, or
one pill a week for every son! in the kingdom.
The pills consumed in a year would weigh
178 tons, making a train load whioh would
require two powerful engines to haul it. If
these pills were placed aide by side they
would make a line nearly 8,500 miles long.
Some English officers have made the inter
esting experiment of jumplBg a torpedo boat
over a boom, thua proving that a single line
of spffrs ia insufficient to defend a harbor
from torpedo attacks. The boom was twenty
feet long by six feet wide, and was sur
mounted by spikes oaloulatad to hold ths
boat fast. . The boat dashed at the obstacle
at the rats ot about twenty knots. Her stem
wa lifted ont of the water almost aa high as
the boom Itself, which was foroed to sink,
while the boat pasaed completely over it,
Neither outwater, propeller nor plates of the
boat were Injured.
fiuatavs Cssaar Mary being arraigned in a
Paris eourt for the forty-eighth time on
charge of drunkenness, snd asked what ex
case he had to offer, explained that he had
taken to drink to coneole himself for bis own
death. When warned not to trifle with the
Court he pulled from hi pocket a paper
showing that he was recorded as having been
killed la August, 1870, at a battle near For-
baoh. He said that he thought It a pity If a
man who had been killed n fighting for Us
country could not take an extra drink now
and then, and begged the Court not to be
hard upon a poor man who was dead. He
had to submit to a sentence of eight daya'
The summary of business dona at Caatle
Garden since ths opening of the establish'
ment in 1847 contain some ststlstlos that
run counter to the general impression about
comparative Immigration from various
foreign - oountries. Oof aewoomer from
Germany have numbered nearly 8,500,000,
exceeding by 1,000,000 those from Ireland.
That England should be next en the list with
nearly 1,800,600 immigrants will cause
general surprise. Next follow Sweden with
835,000, Italy with 817,000, Norway with
173,000 and Switzerland with 172,000.
Hungary with 134,000 exceeds Benmsrk, and
Austria proper is ahead of Bohemia, and so
on down ts COS for Australia, making np a
grand total of 9,600,000 foreigners who have
oome through this port to seek homes and
fortunes in America.
The Vienna correspondent of the London"
Times saya that M. Tlaca, ths Hungarian
statesman, looks like a very aged and feeble
old gentleman, his whit beard,his stoop and
his large tinted spectacles giving him an air
of senility, whereas ia fact he la but fifty
nine year old, the same age as the Emperor
Francis Joseph, who stands upright as
an ash. When II. Tissa speaks in
parliament hie voice is so low and
quavering that the whole house must be
hushed to hear him. In his opinions, char
acter and manner of living II. Tiers has
hardly a trait in common with the mass of
Hungarians. A Calvinist, a Liberal, a man
of bourgeois simplicity, modest in his sur
roundings snd petty in his expenditure, he
is the exact opposite of those dashing, spend
thrift cavalier magnates whom he has gov
erned with so light but firm a touch. The
budget allows the prime minister 0,000
florins a year for table money, but M. Tisza
gives one official banquet a year, and no sort
of other entertainment all the year round.
II. Ties hss never - kept a private carriage,
but hires a cab by ths year,- ' and, aeoordlng
to common report, he was for a long time
driven by one of the most ill-conditioned
jarvies in Buda-Pesth.

Some or Site Fameoe Water Courses
Beneath the Earth's Snrfaee.
From the Ban Francisco Chronicle.
The list of subterranean rivers of impor
tance is being constantly added to, and what
used to be a very limited list has now become
quite an extended one. It was only a few
days ago that the dispatches save an aooonnt
of the discovery or one or tnese streams in
one of the Eastern states, and its exploration
for mires in a canoe by the two adventurous
discovers. According to tne puDiisnsa ao
oounts this stresm is even more remarkable
than that found in the Mammoth oave in
Kentnoky. This latter flows a dlstanoe of
three hundred feet beneath tne eann's sur
face, between banka about thirty feet apart,
and is a volume of water forty feet deep.
Boiling oa for about a quarter of a . mile it
disappears in a bank of fine aand, veiled in
both its coming and its going as the mystery
of life itself. Less known, or rather less
written of, is the river Lys, whioh, on its
entrance into Belgium, dashes abruptly over
a precipice and ia lost to sight for nearly
half a mile. The Meuse also has a suDterra
nean oourae, extending to a distance of six
miles, while the river Dromme. in Norman-
dy, on nearing the aea plunges into a hole
thirty-nine feet wide, known aa the Pit of
Soncy, from whioh it never reappears, exoept
in the form of new springs, which are anp-
Sosed to arise from tbe lost waters. In
'erbyshire, England, there are two small
streams called the Hamps and the Manifold.
Formed by the union ot several small springs

A somewhat simllsr condition of affairs ia
said to exist about a little Cornish lake called
Dozmare, or Dosmary pool, snpnosed to be
that mere into which the good sword Excall-
bar was thrown. It has neither visible out
let nor inlet, bnt it is said that artioles
thrown into the lake will reappear in Fal
mouth harbor, whioh is at least aixty miles
awav. There ia aulte an Arthurian flavor of
romance about this story it is true, but the
thing is vouched for as ST faot by several re
nntabla "oldest inhabitants."
Sometimes the oonditione are reversed and
the river instead of disappearing before it
reaohes the aea. ooroes from tne sea ana ais
appears In the land. In the article in Natnre
of January, 1886, entitled, "Curious Phe
nomena in Uepbalonia," tne writer Bays:
"The sea runs into the land in a strong
stream, turning a water wheel on the way,
and disappears in the earth about one hun
dred yards from the entrance. I Imagine,"
ssys the contributor, "that the water must
be converted into steam whioh comes out
either at Naples or Cephalonia."
This is by no means the only aea fed river,
it appears, for very soon after the publica
tion of the above statement it waa followed
by another from a New York gentleman,
who said that such wer oommou in Msxioo,
where they were known as "senates."
"While passing through Yucatan in 1870,"
ne writes, "l saw a large river running wun
torrential apeed within a natural tunnel, not
far from the seashore, and probably over one
hundred feet below ths surface of the ocean.
Ita shaft like entrance wa adorned by a pica
turesqu old Spanish well curb of atone, fur
nished with standards of faaoifully wrought
Ironwork. Nothing on the surface Indicated
the existence of the vaat cavern under the
monotonous and flat lowlands of the penin
sula of Yucatan- and though not a breath of
air stirred, the dsafaning roar of the torrent
under oar feet could not be perceived until
we were xaiiy inside the cavern, a rapid
, descent brought us to the level of the pump
ussd for irrigating a very extensive ixtl
plantation, and from here we could sea bv
the light of our torches the yellow foam of
the waters upon the undefined background
of the ohasm below. Descending still fur
ther, the full stream could be aeen through a
wide fissure in the limsstons of ths oave. It
had the rounded appearance of a stream
flowing horizontally nnder great pressure,
ten or twelve feet in diameter, and looking
like a gigantic black loiole lying on its side,
The large volume of water plunged with
great swiftness into aa unexplored and dark
chamber with a terrific roar, produolng noises
whleb resembled the hollow echoes of heavy
explosions heard now and then above the
perpetual rumbling of the rushing water.
The mouth or entrance of the zanate was
only twenty-eight feet above the level of the
Uulf of Mexico, and as my barometer indi
cated a descent of one hundred and forty
feet, it meant that the river was flowing one
hundred and twelve feet below the level of
the sea. The manager of the plantation
near whioh was found ths subterransan
stream informed the writer that there were
many other auoh sanates along the ooast, and
that they were looked upon by the natives
with almost superstitious reverence, and
spoken of aa great miraeles whioh have al
ways been as they are now."
The relationship between subterranean
rivers and lost streams is a very close one,
the latter being a fluvial aspect with whioh
we are more familiar.
The phenomenon of a stream flowing mer
rily down from a mountain and then disap
pearing ig. in the West, a very common one.
says a writer in an early number of Science.
In following down the Bto Grande on art en
larged map we find many streama entering
into it in its npper course. In going down a
little farthec, reaching the San Luis valley,
they are found to suddenly- give out on the
northern side, .-and, a few miles farther
down, on the southern side, also. The prin
cipal streams of the valley, the Bio- Grande
excepted; cours in fail force down tne moun
tain, flow freely on, Snd terminate in a
marsh or a email lake on' the sand. The
beds of those which should empty into the
Bio Grande are there, but there is no water
in them. Similar streams are common all
over the southwest, and the various streams
show all the different stages, from those
which really go somewhere all the time, and
those whioh, alive and full of water above,
always fail to reach the stream to which
they are headed below.
"One time," says the writer, "I had the
curiosity to examine the stream at the point
where it was lest, it was tne xiio nonao,
just south of Santa Fe. We had crossed it
lower down, and though the ravine waa seventy-five
or one hundred feet deep, we found
It perfeotly dry. we toiiowea np us soutn
bank for a mile or two until we struck the
foothills, and Ihere we found it a bright,
rippling stream, leaping down from ledge
to ledge, very pioturesque, with some scat
tered trees along the banks, and so broad
that it was not easy to pass over it, leaping
from stone to stone, and remain dry shod.
From here my friend drove back to the
orossing, and I walked down to see where
and how a stream could lose itself with sueh
a volume of water and a path well marked
out for it. As I followed it down it ran on
merrily in the midst of a little valley, no
more than six or eight rods wide, along
which were pretty meadows alternating with
clumps ef bushes. It passed through the
various incidents of a stream here a little
fall, there a rapid over thickly set stones, a
little further on a pool. There seemed to be
nothing unusual in it. when auddenly I no-
tioed that the little valley widened to double
ita previous width, the bed became more
sandy, and tne stream was spreaa over a
greater spaoe. It was evidently going under,
and, within twenty rods of where I noticed
the first ohange, the running water had en
tirely disappeared. The bed of the stream
was damp for another twenty yarde or so
more; then for a considerable distance I
could get water by digging a few inches;
then that indication failed, and beyond the
stream the bed was entirely dry."
All such streams do not thus terminate In
the middle of their bed, however; some end
in a small, shallow lake, some in a marsh.
Other lost streams fill up after a rainfall and
complete above the ground their oourae to
the main current or to the aea. After a
heavy rain in the mountains they are apt to
change their "lost" character with a audden
ness which may prove dangerouB. the water
occasionally pouring down with an advancing
wave or head hve or six ieet high.
There is one very remarkable case ia New
Mexico, where the lost tributaries are plenti
ful, but the main stream does not exist at
all. This is ia a valley whioh lies between
the Bio Grande and tbe Psooa rivers. The
valley begins near the Sandia mountains and
is shut in by broken mountain changes. It
is a wall denned valley, not vary bread, but
having a length of perhaps, three hundred
miles. Flowing into it, especially on tne
western side near the upper end, and on the
eastern toward the lower, are numerous lost
tributaries, while the primary stream has so
completely disappeared that its very bed oan
only be found at intervals.

Dr. Samuel G. Dixon, professor of hygiene
in the University of Pennsylvania, who has
been conducting a series of experiments
bearing upon consumption and Its preven
tion, has reached some interesting results
whioh do much to explain many mysterious
phases of that Insidious disease. Tuber
culosis, as ic is known, is not confined to
man, but is common among the lower ani
mals, the cow, horse, sheep, pig, rabbit and
ohioken among others, and as theee are
lanrelv UBed for food by man, the doctor's
experiments have been directed to ascertain
ing whether or not human beinge oan con'
tract consumption by partaking of meat
from animals suffering from tuberculosis or
of milk from oows with tuberculosis ef tbe
. The result of several hundred experiments
conduoted at the laboratory of the University
of Pennsylvania leaveB no room or doubt
that consumption oan be, and beyond ques
tion very often is, contracted by eating
tuberculous meats. It was found that calves
and pigs fed on milk infected with-tuberculous
material from a human source contracted
consumption, and the converse would seem
An especially interesting experiment of
Pr. Dixon was upon a dog. That animal
has an aoid gastric secretion even stronger
than that of man, and for this reason many
bacteriologists have selected him for oruolal
testa of the theory that tuberculosis is inter
oommunloable between man and animals.
Many attempts to communicate consumption
to dogs by feeding them on tnberoulous
food have failed, but not satisfied with these,
and believing that with dogs aa with men
some are disposed to consumption while others
escape it, the doctor pnshd his experiments
in ths hope that he would find some of ths
animals in a physical oondition especially
susceptible to tuberoniosis. fcteleotlng a
healthy dog about five months old Dr. Dixon
permitted hi stomach to become quite emp -
ty ana men gave mm as nie nrss meat some
Infected cow's meat.
, For several days ths dog's diet was partly
made up of tuberculous meat, and in a short
time he began to grow thin and to present
every physical appearance of a consumptive,
dying in a few weeks. The post-mortem ex
amination gavs every indication of tubercu
losis, and the bealogieal tests clearly demon
atrated the presenoe of tubercle bacilli in the
mesenteric glands. :

satisfied himself that man oan oontraot con
sumption from eating tuberculous meat and
taking milk from-oowa whose mammary
glands are affeoted, Dr. Dixon soggeststhat.
in order to prevent this contagion, veterin
ary inspectors should be empowered to con
demn all tnberoulous meat, a reasonable
compensation being paid to the owners of
animals found in that condition; and they
should visit all milk dairies and condemn
every cow found Buffering from tuberculosis,
particularly those with mammitis. As a
strong predisposition to tuberculosis Is trans
missible to offspring, the breeding of tuber
culous animals should be prohibited by law.
Pineapple Jalce for Diphtheria.
From the Chicago Tribune.)
Medical science baa long aought for a sov
ereign remedy for the scourge of childhood,
diphtheria, yet the colored people of Louisi
ana, and perhaps of other localities in the
south, have for years known and used a cure
which is remarkable for its simplicity. It is
nothing more or less than tbe juice of the
"The remedy is not mine," said a gentle- -man
when interviewed; "it has been used by
negroes la the swamps down-son th for year.
On of my children was down with diph
theria, and wa in critical condition. An
old colored man who heard of the oase. asked
if we had tried pineapple juice. We tried It
and the child got well. I have known it
tried in Hundreds or oases, i nave tola my
friends about it whenever I heard of a case,
and never knew it to fail. You get a ripe
pineapple, squeeze out the juice, and let the
patient swallow it. The juice is of so cor
rosive a nature that it will cut out diphther
itio mucus, and if you will take the trull
before it is ripe and give the juice to a per
son whose throat is well it makes the mucous
membranes of his throat sore. Among
those who hsve tried the cure on my recom
mendation I may mention Franels J. Ken
nett, the board of trade man, whose children
were all down with diphtheria and were
oured by this remedy.
