Height of Ocean Waves. It is cal
culated, as the result of accurate study,
that in a strong wind waves may have
a length of two hundred and sixty
feet, with a speed of about three hun
dred and sixty feet a second. Waves
four hundred feet long, with a speed
of twenty-eight nautical miles per
hour, are produced only in heavy
storms. Waves may, according to this
calculation, rise six hundred feet in
fifteen seconds. It is claimed that
waves more than sixty feet high are
exceptional; that the average is very
much less than fifty. In ordinary

is from fivo to six feet.
in Texas a "norther" is a chilling
blast ths.t sweeps over the country,
sending the temperature down as
much as thirty degrees in as many

is a hot wind that puts the temperature
up ten or fifteen points above comfort,
and instead of freezing vegetation does
great damage by causing a too quick
ripening. Early this month the Sacra
mento valley had a norther which
lasted ten days, ripening the wheat
crop prematurely so that the yield
shrank twenty-five percent, over the
estimate of the previous week. These
hot winds rarely last more than three

A sixteen-foot alligator crawled out
of the St. John's river at the foot of
Main street. Jacksonville, Fla., one
day recently, and leisurely waddled
up the street toward the center of the
city. Main street is one of the princi
pal streets of Jacksonville, and tho ap
pearance of the alligator created a
good deal of consternation among the
hundreds of people there. Every man
with a pistol started shooting at the
reptile, but the bullets didn't worry it
a little bit. After promenading four
blocks, and squelching with its tail a
too familiar newsboy, -it received a
wound from a rifle which caused it to
slow up a little. Then it started up a
leaning telegraph pole, thus exposing
its vulnerable parts and was soon shot '
to death. Nine big alligators have
been killed recently at the foot of
Main street, but this is the first that
has ventured up town.
Ferret and Squirrel.
Young ferrets can be easily raised by
smuggling them in among a litter of
kittens, and when Cincinnati a few
years ago experienced a revival of the
speckled rat craze I utilized a hutch of
the little nuisances by making them
adopt a hatful of young gray squirrels.
There were about two dozen rats in
the wire box, and at sight of the new
comers, a committee of females issued
from their boudoirs in a bundle of cot
ton waste and subjected the bushy
tailed strangers to a close scrutiny.
The little woodland orphans had their
.eyes open, and at first tried to avoid
familiarities by clambering up the
wire -netting, but were speedily pulled
down and gently but firmly dragged
into the interior of the cotton thicket.
The next morning one of the squirrels
was dead, and, suspecting the cause of
the suspicious-looking sores about its
neck, I removed all the "buck" rats
from the nursery and noticed that
'within a few hours their grass widows
trusted their foster-children on the
outside of the cotton fort and soon
joined them in their sarambles on the
floor of the cage. The four survivors
had been divided between the presiding
matrons of the establishment, and in
the rout of a domestic scrimmage
always flew for protection to their in
dividual foster-mothers. X. Y. Jour

BIRDS OF GIGANTIC SIZE.
Feathered Monsters That Inhabit Moms,
tain lleclons of South America.
For many years the minds of philo
sophical ornithologists have been much
exercised by the origin and phylogeny
of the existing flightless ostrich-like
birds and their fossil relatives. Not
very long ago, we believe, it was not
an uncommon opinion that all these
ratitc birds, as ostriches, rheas, casso
waries and emus, are collectively
called, were the immediato descend
ants of a certain group of extinct rep
tile, and that they thcmsolves gave
origin to the flying birds. One circum
stance is, however, fatal to this hy
pothesis. Flying"birds have the bones
of the fore limb, or wing, constructed
on a very peculiar plan, and quite un
like those of either mammals or rep
tiles. But precisely the same type of
structure is presented by the rudi
mentary wings of such of the ostrich
like birds as possess these appendages
at all; and it is quite clear that if
these birds had been evolved from rep
tiles in the condition we now find
them that is to say, without the
power of flight they would have re
tained the reptile type of forclimb, and
would not have an aborted bird's
wing. Hence, It is clear that we must
regard the ostriches and their allies as
the descendants of birds endowed with
the power of flight, but whose wings
have become gradually atrophied by
disuse till, as in the emus, they arc
extremely minute, or, as in the extinct
moas of New Zealand, have even com
pletely disappeared. So far as the ex
isting and later tertiary representa
tives of these giant flightless birds are
concerned, it docs not appear that we
have at present any means of deciding
this question one way or the other.
The discoveries made during the last
few years in tlje o'.der tertiary deposits
of Patagonia have, liowever, gradually
brought to light the remains of a
group of most extraordinary gigantic
flightless birds which formerly inhab
ited that ccnutry, and which are so to
tally unlike all the modern ratit.-o
that there can be no reasonable doubt
as to their having originated inde
pendently from flying forms. When
we havo once admitted the independent
origin of one group of flightless birds
there appear at first sight no great
reasons why the modern types should
not have had a diverging anccstiy, al
though there arc certain grounds for
regarding them as derived from a
single stock. For a knowledge of the
giant flightless birds of Patagonia we
arc mainly indebted to the labors of
Scnor Florentino Amcghino, of Buenos
Ayres. The first example of their re
mains brought to light was a portion
of a lower jaw, and so massive and un-
bird-like was this bone that it was at
first described as belonging to a gi
gantic edentate mammal. And no
wonder cither, for we have not hither1
to been accustomed to deal with birds
whose lower jaw measures about twenty-one
inches in total length. Indeed,
it is even now difficult to convince
English naturalists that the fossilized
extremities of the beaks of the extraor
dinary birds are avian at all. Mr. Ly
decks goes on at considerable length
to disenss the question, and the article
is full of useful information. Knowl
FOUND THE LOST SHIRTS.
Jndge lilaclc l'ut on Ills Clean Over Ills
Kirkland White, better known as
"Kirt," has lived for over forty years
in tho pretty little city of York, Pa.,
which was also the home of the late
Judge Jeremiah S. Black. Mr. White
was a personal friend of the judge,
add they used to make many trips to
this city together and invariably stayed
at the Astor house. Mr. White was at
this hotel one night recently and got
to speaking of his old friend, Judge
Black, who, he said, was the most
absent-minded man he ever met. Mr.
White went on:
"Whenever the judge and I arranged
to start off on a trip together Mrs.
Black used to tell me to bo sure and
sec that the judge paid his hotel bills.
He generally forgot to do so unless
somebody reminded him of it. Some
times the clerks in the hotels would
suggest that he owed something just
as he was about to depart, but more
often they wouldn't, and the bill would
remain unpaid until he visited the
hotel again. These things annoyed
his good wife very much. When we
were returning after one of our trips
the judge would often say to me:
'Bless my soul, Kirt, I don't believe I
paid my bill at that hoteL What will
they think of me?' "
'"Oh, that's all right. I settled
things,' I would reply. The judge
would then Insist on paying me back
immediately, and when we got home I
could make a clean report to his wife."
"Why, I remember," said oncof tho
clerks, who has been with the Astor
house for many years, "that one day
I handed Judge Black a telegram. He
took it, and, after reading the address,
Judge Jeremiah S. Black,' on the en
velope, he handed it back to me re
marking that it couldn't be for him,
but that it must be for somebody else
of the same name, as he didn't recog
nize tho handwriting."
"The story of the shirts, however,"
put In Mr. White, "is the best one of
all, and Mrs. Black told it herself. She
said that one time the judge had to go
away alone on a week's trip, so she put
some things into a valise for him, in
cluding three clean shirts. When the
judge got home again, she opened the
valise and was surprised to find but
one shirt In it, and that was a soiled
" 'Gracious me, judgel she exclaimed,
'what have you done with yourshirtsV
'"I'm sure I don't know, my dear,
he replied; 'aren't they in the valise?'
" 'No, they are not,' said Mrs. Black,
'and they were new ones, too.'
"Well, the mystery of the lost shirts
was not cleared up until the judge
went to bed that night. It was then
discovered that bo had worn the lost
shirts, one over tho other. When he
wanted a clean shirt he had evidently
forgotten to take the one he was wear
ing off. Mrs. Black used to say that
had the judge stayed away longer and
had more shirts with him he-would un
doubtedly have had them all on when
he finally got home." N. Y. Tribune.

An clectrograph for marking linen
indelibly was shown to the Royal so
ciety lately. The fabric is damped and
a current passed for, two seconds from
a silver die, carrying silver into tho
fabric wherever it touches; the current
is then reversed for three seconds, re
ducing the metal; the result is that
metallic silrer is deposited on the tis
sue. The amount of capital engaged in
the electrical business, not including
telegraphy, is estimated as follows:
England, S100, 000,000; France. 5150,000,
000,000; Germany, S200,000,000; Austria,
Italy, Spain and Switzerland, S1S0.000,
000; Russia, Sweden, Norway and Den
mark, 550,000,000; Canada and other
American countries, 5500,000,000, mak
ing a total of about 5050,000,000 in Eu

At the second trial of electricity
as a motive power on the Nantasket
Beach division of the New York, New
Haven and Hartford railroad, June 21,
an average speed of 80 miles an hour
was reached in a three mile straight
run. Another electric locomotive was
attached to a train of three passenger
coaches, and a heavy steam locomotive
weighing over 175 tons and easily
moved at the rate of speed of a steam
locomotive. The starting and stop
ping was especially prompt.
Frank E. Grover, foreman of tho
Rochester Gas and Electric Co., a few
days ago received a shock of nearly
8,000 volts of electricity and was re
suscitated in about 75 minutes. The
remedy employed in reviving Grover
was discovered by Dr. d'Arsonval, a
French scientist, in 1897. It consists
in restoring artificial respiration by
rythmic movements of the arms and
pressure of the chest. Dr. d'Arson
val's system was successfully ap
plied in restoring to life James E. Cut
ler, who was struck apparently dead
by an electric shock of 4,000 volts in
Pittsfield, Mass., on November 21 last.
One of the "wonderful" inventions
connected with the telegraph and tel
ephone is that of an Illinois genius,
who is said to have perfected and in
vented an electric camera, which can
be attached to an electric circuit such
as telegraph or telephone and which
will reproduce Images of the persons
speaking or communicating with each
other, thus enabling parents to see
their children, friends sec friends,
even though a continent intervenes.
So perfect is the action of this electric
camera (so it is said) that every move
ment and even changes in facial ex
pression are faithfully show.
The Baltimore & Lehigh railroad,
which runs from that city to Delta,
Pa., will probably be the first road to
substitute electricity for steam as a
motive power. The Baltimore & Ohic
railroad will use only electric locomo
tives in its tunnels, but the Baltimore
& Lehigh Co. contemplates using them
over the entire line. Estimates of the
cost of electrical power are now before
the executive committee of the com
pany. The road crosses the Gunpow
dcr river and other streams which can
be utilized for water power to operate
the electrical supply stations.
In a recent lecture Lord Raylcigb
used as illustrations some photographs
he made three years ago of bursting
soap films. Photography gives the fol
lowing account: "Each was taken by
the light of an electric flash lasting
less than one-millionth of a second.
The soap films were broken by meant
of letting a bullet, wetted with alco
hol, fall through them; a dry bullet
would go clean through them, per
haps, a dozen times without brcakins
them. The greatest difficulty in the
work was in the mechanical arrange
ments, to so time the flash that it
should occur just as the bullet had
passed through the film. The photo
graphs were good ones, showing the
falling bullet, and th. torn and thick
ened edges of the broken film, as well
assome little attached filaments ol
liquid beads of soap solution."
ANOTHER TRAMP DODGE.
It Would ot VTork Twice on the Sams
Sue Berb does not believe in en
couraging tramp?, peddlers and other
itinerants. It has long been her boast
that such people never got inside het
door. But there are exceptions. One
day last spring.Mrs. Sue Berbanswered
a knock a her side door, and her heart
melted with pity at seeing there a fee
ble old woman, apparently overcome
with weariness and asthma.
The salutation of her strange guest
"For the love of heaven, Jady, let rao
come in and rest a minute. I can't go
on further at present. Let me sit
down and get my wind and have a
drink of water" wheeze puff wheeze
Mrs. Sue Herb's natural suspicion
was unarmed, and she cheerfully gave
the strange wanderer a seat in her
kitchen, brought her a drink, not of
water, but of wine, and sat by and
fanned her until the signs of asthma
began to disappear.
Her reward was to see her visitor
suddenly whip a small basket of pins
and notions from beneath her shawl
and, with a cunning glitter in her
eyes, solicit patronage in a voice from
which all trace of asthma had gone.
Mrs. Sue Berb concluded that she hud
been sold, and sho was convinced when
she saw her visitor walk up to the
house of her neighbor next door and
repeat the same tactics.
The first of May came, and with it
Mrs. Sue Berb moved from her house
on Seventh street to a house on
Stcenth avenue, which .she could get
one dollar a month cheaper, and which
had, besides, the advantage of one
more gas jet and a little cleaner paper
on tho kitchen wall.
Yesterdaj- there was a knock at her
side door, and when she opened it who
should be there but her former ac
quaintance, with the same old. asthma
and exhaustion and the same plea for
a chance to come in and rest jast a
minute. Mrs. Sue Herb is not the kind
of fish that can bo caught twice in tho
same net. She had no pity this time.
After listening to the old woman's
complaint for a minute, she broke in
"For the love of heaven, woman, go
away wheeze I can't help you puft
Give me a chance to rest a minute in
my own house wheeze. If you knew
how ill I am you would not ask to come
in" wheeze pu ff wheeze.
And the notion purveyor, with a
crestfallen look, trotted nimbly down
the steps and walked away at a rate
which proved that there was more than
one cure for her kind of asthma. Buf
