SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY. FLOWER PIGMENTS. Hriismi, a German physicist, finds that the oolora of fruits and flowers are furnished by a very small number of pigments, whioh he classifies into three gronps: first, reds; second, yellows, and third, blues and violets. He omits chlorophyll green, because it is comparatively rare in flowers. Orange is produced by a thickening of a deposit of the fundamental yellow pigment, the coloring matter being the same in the rind of an orange and in a yellow buttercup. Roses and carnations ■how the characteristic red pigment, i> which variations are produced by the presence of acids. universal color-blindness. v Color-blindness, as usually understood, is a blindness to red, to green, or to blue or violet; and about one male in every twenty-five appears to be unable to discriminate between the principal colors of the spectrum. In a stricter sense, all persons are oolor-blind, for, although Chevreul is said to have been able to distinguish 14,420 tones of color, it has been proven that the human eye is totally incapable of receiving all the vibrations of color which must exist in the spectrum. EARTHQUAKE CAUSES. Earthquake phenomena appear to result from a variety of causes, which are thus briefly summed up by Mr. Ralph S. Tarr : In volcanic regions earthquakes are a part of an eruption ; in a lime stone country the falling in of cavern walls may account for some : in regions where the mountains are of recent formation the sudden release of ten sion oauses many ; the pressure of pent-up gases on the surrounding rocks, which finally burst, may produce a large number, more especially those which are followed by a long scries of shooks; and, finally, in any one of those regions either or all of the other causes—with the exception of vol canic in non-volcanio regions—may enter into the production of earthquakes. PROGRESS OF MEDICAL SCIENCE. Physic appears to have been practiced first by the Egyptian priests. Pythagoras endeavored to explain the philosophy of disease and the action of medicine about 529 B. C. Hippocrates, the father of medicine, flourished about 422 B. C., and Galen, born 131 A. D , was the oracle of medical soience. About 9SO, Avicenna, an Arab, wrote a system of medicine. The dogmatic age of medi cine lasted until the Reformation, when it was attacked by Paracelsus and Vesalius early in the sixteenth century. An entirely new system of physiological and pathological speculation was furnished in 162 S by Dr. Harvey’s discovery of the circulation of the blood; and since ISOO med ical practice has been completely transformed by physiological and chemical research. The past decade has given us the beginning of a new epoch that of the development of the germ theory of disease—in which science is called upon to defend our bodies from the microscopic parasites which prey upon them and produco our most dreaded ailments. MISCELLANEOUS. A means of determining and automatically re cording the exact amount of energy stored in elec tric accumulators, or storage batteries, has been discovered by Crova and Garbe, French electri cians. They claim that they can also ascertain the quantity of electricity still held in reserve at any given moment. According to Ptolemy, the first eclipse recorded —one of the moon—took place March 19th, 721 B. C , at 8.40 p. m., and was accurately observed at Babylon. The Egyptians claimed to have ac curately observed 373 eclipses of the sun and 832 of the moon in the period from Vulcan to Alexan der, who died in 323 B. C. The theory of eclipses is said to have been known in China before 120 B. C. Italian officers are being taught how to collect and preserve specimens of marine animals, and it is expected that the navy will thus be enabled to make scientific collections of great value from va rious parts of the world. Not only may the amputated parts of certain low organisms be re-grown but the pieces removed may themselves become complete animals. Gruber, in Germany, has succeeded in dividing and re dividing infusoria until sixteen perfect individu als were produced from the original subject. A French investigator, Witx, believes he has discovered an antagonism between ozone and cholera, the proportion of the former in the atmos phere of Paris last year having been in inverse ratio to the mortality from the disease. The fermentation of malt liquors has been found to turn 25,000,000,000 gallons of carbonic acid yearly into the atmosphere of Groat Britain. The dome to contain the 30-inoh telescope of the new Bischoflsheim observatory at Nice is the largest revolving dome in tho world, having an internal diameter of 72J feet and a weight of nearly 94 tons. Yet the great structure can be easily turned completely around by a small wheel in four minutes. It floats in a trough-rim con taining a non-freeing solution of chloride of mag nesium. Comparing modern gigantic animals with the fossil remains of the great creatures which lived in earlier geological ages, Mr. R. A. Proctor con cludes that it may well be doubtod whether at any time in the past history of the earth the aver age size of the ten largest creatures by sea and land exceeded the average size of the ten largest species now existing. Biniodide of mercury, according to Miguel, is the most powerful antiseptic known, a solution of one forty-thousandth strength rendering life im possible to any form of microbe or germ. lodide of silver is next in destructive power, and bi chloride of mercury requires a strength of one fourteen-thousandth. Crookes has found that the presence of one part of samarium affects the spectrum of 2,500,000 parts of calcium, so great is the delicacy of spectrum analysis. * * * Little Things Worth Knowing. A bag of hot sand relieves neuralgia. Warm borax water will remove dandruff. Salt should be eaten with nuts to aid digestion. Milk, which stands too long, makes bitter butter. Rusty flat irons shoufd be rubbed over with beoswax and lard. It rests you in sewing to change yonr position frequently. A hot, strong lemonade taken at bedtime will break up a bad cold. Tough meat is made tender by lying a few minutes in vinegar water. A little soda water will relieve sick head ache caused by indigestion. A cup of strong coffee will remove the odor of onions from the breath. A cup of hot water, drunk before meals, will prevent nausea and dyspepsia. Well venti lated bed-rooms will prevent morning headaches and lassitude. Consumptive night sweats may be arrested by sponging the body nightly in salt water. One in a faint should be laid flat on his back, then loosen his clothes and let him alone. A fever patient can be made cool and comfortable by frequent sponging off with soda water. Cold tea should be saved for your vinegar barrel. It sours easily and gives color and flavor. To beat the whites of eggs quickly add a pinch of salt. Salt cools, and cool eggs froth rapidly. The hair may be kept from falling out after illness by a frequent application to the sealp of sage tea. You can take out spots from wash goods by rub bing them with the yolk of egg before washing. White spots upon varnished furniture will disap pear if you hold a hot plate from tho stove over them. The Chinese in San Francisco. The Supervisors of San Francisco have been making a careful investigation of the Chinese quarter of that city. They say that not less than 30,000 people from the Celestial Empire are there packed as close as sardines, yet they make this remarkable statement: “In a sanitary point of view Chinatown presents a singular' anomaly. With the habits, manners, customs, and whole eoonomy of life violating every accepted rule of hygiene; with open cesspools, exhalations from sinks and sewers tainting tho atmosphere with noxious vapors and stifling odors; with people herded and packed in damp cellars, living literal ly the life of vermin, badly fed and clothed, ad dicted to the daily use of opium to the extent that many hours of each day or night are passed in the delirious stupefaction of its influence, it is not to be denied that, as a whole, the general health of this locality compares more than favorably with other sections of the city which are surround ed by far more favorable conditions.” The only explanation which they can discover for this is that the open wood fires and constant smokiDg which prevail there fumigate the section. The Great Glacier of Alaska. According to the San Francisco Courier, the great glacier of Alaska is moving at the rate of a quarter of a mile per annum. The front presents a wall of ice 500 feet in thickness; its breadth varies from three to ten miles, and its length is about 150 miles. Almost every quarter of an hoar hundreds of tons of ice in large blocks fall into the sea, which they agitate in the most vio lent manner. The waves are said to be such that they toes about the largest vessels which approach the glaoier as if they were small boats. Theioe is i extremely pure and dazzling to the eye ,* it has tints of the lightest blue as well as of the deepest | indigo. The top is Tory rough and broken, form- ' ing small hills, and even chains of mountains in miniature. This immense mass or ice, said to be more than an average of a thousand feet thiok, advances daily towprd the sea. ■ Reading Notices. “Rough on Rats.” Clears out rats, mice, roaches, flies, ants, bedbugs.

CLARK, Lexington and Calvert Streets, Balti more. Sep.6,’B4y. Crazy Quilt Architecture. The following from the pen of Bill Nye, in the Chattanooga Times, The American Architect and Building News thinks, contains more truth than fiction: It may be premature, perhaps, but I desire to suggest to any one who may be contemplating the erection of a sum mer residence for me, as a slight testi monial of his high regard for my ster ling worth and symmetrical escutcheon —a testimonial more suggestive of earn est admiration and warm personal friend ship than of great intrinsic value, etc. —that I hope he will not construct it on the modem plan of mental halluci nation and morbid delirium tremens peculiar to recent architecture. Of course a man ought not to look a gift house in the gable end, but if my friends don’t know me any better than to build me a summer house, and throw in odd windows that nobody else want ed, and then daub it up with colors they have bought at auction, and ap plied to the house after dark with a shotgun, I think it is time that we had a better understanding. Such a structure does not come with in either of the three classes of Renais sance. It is neither Florentine, Ro man, nor Venetian. Any man can orig inate a style of architecture if he will drink the right kind of whisky long enough, and then describe his feelings to an amanuensis. Imagine the sensa tion that one of these modern, sawed off cottages would create a hundred years from now, if it should survive. But that is impossible. The only cheer ing feature of the whole matter is that these creatures of a disordered imagina tion must soon pass away, and the bright sunlight of hard horse sense shine in through the shattered dormers and gables of gnawed off architecture of the average summer resort. A friend of mine, a few days ago, showed me his new house with much pride. He asked me what I thought of it. I told him I liked it first rate. Then I went home and wept all night. It was my first falsehood. The house taken as a whole looked to me like a skating rink that had start ed out to make money, and then sud denly changed its mind, and resolved to become a tannery. Then ten feet higher it had lost all self-respect, and blossomed into a full blown “drunk and disorderly,’’ surmounted by the smoke stack of a foundry, and with the bright future of thirty days ahead with the chain gang. That’s the way it looked to me. The roofs were made of little odds and ends of misfit rafters and distorted shingles that somebody had purchased at sheriff's sales and the rooms and stairs were giddy in the extreme. I went in and rambled around among the stair cases and other nightmares till reason tot tered on her throne. Then I came out and stood on the architectual wart call ed the side porch, to get fresh air. This porch was painted a dull red, and it had wooden rosettes at the corners that looked like a brand new carbuncle on the nose of a social wreck. Farther up on the demoralized lumber pile I saw now and then places where the workman’s mind had wandered, and he had nailed on his clapboards wrong side up, and then painted them with the Paris green that he had intended to use on something else. It was an odd looking structure indeed. If my friend got all the materials for nothing from people who had fragments of paint and lumber left over after they had failed, and then if the workmen constructed it nights for mental relaxation and intel lectual repose, without charge, of course the scheme was a financial success, but architecturally the house is a gross vio lation of the statutes in such cases made and provided, and against the peace and dignity of the State. There is a look of extreme poverty about the structure which a man might struggle for years to acquire and then fail. No one could look upon it with out feeling a heartache for the man who built that house, and probably strug gled on year after year, building a little of it at a time as he could steal the lumber, getting a new workman each year, building a knob here and a pro tuberance there, putting in a three cor nered window at one point and a yel low tile or a wad of broken glass or other debris at another, patiently filling in around the ranch with any old rub bish that other people had got through with, and painting it as he went along, taking what was left in the bottom of the pot after his neighbors had paint ed their bob sleds or their tree boxes — little favors thankfully received—and then surmounting the whole pile with a potpourri of roof, a grand farewell in cubus of bumps and hollows for the rain to wander through and seek out the different cells where the lunatics live who inhabit it. I did tell my friend of one thing that I thought would improve the looks of his house. He asked me eagerly what it could be. I said it would take a man of great courage to do it for him. He said he didn’t care for that. He would do it himself. If it only needed one thing, he would never rest until he had it, whatever that might be. Then I told him that if he had a friend— that he could trust —who would steal in there some night when the family were away, and scratch a match on the leg of his breeches, or on the breeches of any other gentleman that was present, and hold it where it would ignite the alleged house, and then remain to see that the fire department did not meddle with it, he would confer a great favor on one who would cheerfully retaliate in kind at call. Chin Characteristics. A pointed or round chin indicates a person possessing a congenial love. A person with such a chin will have a beau ideal, and will not be easily sat isfied with real men and women. The indented chin indicates a great desire to be loved ; hunger and thirst for affection. When large in woman, she may overstep the bounds of eti quette and make love to the one that pleases her. A narrow, square chin indicates a de sire to love; and is more common among women. The broad, square chin indicates ar dent love, combined with great steadfast ness and permanence of affection. The retreating chin is indicative of the want of attachment, but little ardor in love. The chin, in its length and breadth, indicates self-control, self-will, resolu tion, decision, etc. Carnivorous animals have the upper jaw projecting, while those of the gram inivorous have the lower jaw project ing. In man with a projecting upper jaw will be found large destructiveness, and love of animal food; when the lower jaw projects, then the love for vegeta ble food. s®"Jones asked his wife, “Why is a husband like dough ?” He expected she would give it up, and he was going to tell her that it was because a woman needs him; but she said it was because he was hard to get off her hands.
