A Little Boy of Three Years Shot and In
stantly Killed by III Brother.
Notwithstanding the frequent and repeated
fatal accidents resultlne from tne careless and
reckless use of firearms, it is our unwelcome lot
to record this morning the fact of a bright little
boy, aged only three years, being snatched sud
denly from the brightness of lite to trie darkness
of death by tbe wanton indulgence or. parents in
allowing tbelr children to use firearms. The
sad accident occurred in the village of Port
Terry, on the Connellsville Railroud, and the
circumstances, as related to our reporter by the
telegraph operator of the Connellsville Railroad,
are an follows: Two little boys, sons of Mr. W.
Nlll, of Port Perry, aged respectively eight and
three years, were playing together, the eldest
handling a pistol, when suddenly it was acci
dentally discharged, the load taking effect in
tbe body of his little brother and causing death
almost instantly. With what a pall the news
must have fallen upon the distracted family, and
what a warning it should be to parents not to
permit their little ones to meddle with loaded
firearms 1 Pittsburg Commercial, last evening.
Von Moltke In Turkey.
It may not be generally known that in his
youth General von Moltke served in Tarkey
nnder Sultan Mahmoud. An article in the
Allgemeine Zeitung by Dr. Ludwig Herr
mann, who was in Turkey at the time, gives
some interesting particulars of thla curious
episode in the great Prussian strategist's
career. In 1833, after the war with Mehemet
Ali, in which Mahmoud had lost a consider
able part of his dominions, the Sultan deter
mined to reorganize his army after the French
model, lie endeavored with tnis object to
obtain some French officers as instructors, hut
the Russian Government objected to this, and
be then applied to the Prussian ambassador,
Count Konigsmark, for some instructors from
the Prussian army. The Count, however, ex
pressed his regret at being unable to oomply
with this request, and the plan was tempo
rarily abandoned. Two years afterwards Staff
Captain von Moltke arrived at Constantino
pie, having been sent by bis Government on
a scientino expedition to the Last, lie was
introduced to Chosrev Pasha, tbe Minister
for War, who, struck by his abilities, pre
sented him to the Knltan. Tbe latter was
so favorably impressed by Moltke at his first
audience that he wrote an autograph letter to
the King of Prussia, requesting his permis
sion to retain the young captain for some
time at bin court, as he wished to have his
advice on tbe changes he proposed to intro
duce in the Turkish array. The King at first
cave Moltke three months' leave, aud after
tbe expiration of that time consented, at
Sultan Mabmoud's urgent request, to his en
tering for a short time into the service of the
Porte, on the understanding that his plaoe in
tbe Prussian army should be kopt vacant for
him. In IbM the Sultan made Moltku a colo
nel inhisarmy, and entrusted him with various
important duties. At his sugiestii)n three
other eminent officers of the Prussian statf
and some officers of the artillery of the Prus
sian Guard were alo attached to the army as
military advisers and instructors. Moltke
himself was attached to the army of Kurdis
tan under Hafiz Pasha, aud greatly con
tributed to Lis victories over tLe rebellion
Kurds in 1H37, and to the success of hi
march across the Taurus ayaiast Ibrhi.u
Tasha in 131). On coming up wi'b. tha
enemy, however, Hadz refused to adopt the
plan of battle prop-wed by Moltks, ttud Iuva
hini then gained a decisive victory over the
Turks in the battle of Nisib, upon which
Moltke and the other PrussUu sUrf o'liiern
resigned their appointments aud returuu.i
home Theorganizatioa of the Turkish army
bs it eiisted during the Crimeau war was en
tirely the result of Moltke'n reforms.
There are certainly moments in the his
tory of the world when what is called "good
society" does not come out weiL Its ten
dency is to prefer the political calm neoessary
to tne qmet emovment of tne pleasures oi
wealth and high social position to the turmoil
and agitation out of which ofttimes proceeds
an improved oondition for those who cannot
be considered good society. The feelings and
utterances of this high class in t ranoe at the
present time show its peouliar characteristics
in a concentrated form. Ihe noncbalanoe
with which the , high-born idlers at St. Ger
main contemplate the struggle going on out
Bide tbe walls of Paris is noticed with disgust
by others besides the Communist journals. A
haughty indifference is, however, by no means
the only unbecoming Btate of mind with
which they can be reproached. The "repose
which marks the caste of Vere de Vere"' does
not in the least prevent that caste from be
traying very strong passions and using very
8t roup language when its interests are inter
fered with. A correspondent of the Indtnen
datice JJdge, writing from Versailles, says:
fc" ' here are here three currents of opinion. That
emanating from the Assembly is most open to con
ciliatory proposals; the second, proceeding from
the Government, Is also disposed to many conces
sions, but as time goes on it believes more and more
In the employment of forco. of the third I
nave not spoken, it is pernaps better to veil our
disgrace; lor a certain reactionary, sanguinary, and
unpatriotic fury Is a national disgrace. I cannot re
peat to you wnai 1 near, lou could never imagine
the violent language of the drawing-rooms, and the
hopes entertained there, it reaches such a pitch
that I often feel compelled to undertake the de
fense of the Parisians, and breathe more freely in
the lobbies of the Assembly even when they are fad
of deputies of the Right."
A petition now before the German Roioh-
biea pleads for the preservation and restora
tion of one of the most venerable relics of
German history and architecture, the ancient
Imperial House at Goslar in the Harz. This
is, as the petition sets forth, one of the very
few remaining edifices of the eleventh cen
tury. During the interval of more than two
hundred years from 1050 to 125:1, it was in
habited by ten or eleven successive German
Emperors; it is, further, the birthplace of a
German Emperor, and no less than twenty
three imperial assemblies have taken plaoe in
it. The whole expense of the restoration is
estimated at only 00,000 thalers. There is
hardly any doubt of the favorable reception
of the petition.
If the late war has indisputably estab
lished the superiority of the Prussian school
ing of officers, its lessons are by no means
equally favorable to tbe asserted necessity of
a full three years' training to the men from
a military point of view. We have failed to
notice any difference in the bearing, disci
pline, or fighting of Prussians and Sonth
Germans. Yet vthe latter do not receive
nearly as much military schooling as the Prus
sians. The Badanese, whose army most re
sembles the Prussian, having been since 1SGG
remodelled on the Prussian system, and since
then constantly nnder tbe. command of a
Prussian general and War. Minister, keep
their men with their regiments only twenty-
seven months out of the thirty-six of nominal
service. Ihe Wurtembergers and Hessians
limit the period to abont two years out of the
three, and the shortest training of all is al
lowed in Bavaria, where frequently eighteen
months, rarely more than twenty-one, out of
tbe thirty-six are considered suthoient. And
yet these Bavarians have been pro
claimed by the Prussians them
selves to be models of courage, enduranoe,
and discipline. The great benefit of short
service to the country is thoroughly appreci
ated by tbe South Germans. Mot only is the
army expenditure brought down to a com
paratively low figure tne men on long fur
lough receiving no pay but the labor diverted
from productive employment is likewise re
duced to a minimum, furloughs being so
regulated as to dismiss the men at harvest-
time and recall them when agricultural work
is scarce. The favorable results of the short-
service system cannot oe otherwise tnan
satisfactory to non-military countries like
ourselves. Of course where the army is used
as in Prussia not merely as an arm of
defense but as a school for inoulcating sub
mission and obedience in civil matters, other
considerations come into force. Still the
time was when Prussian Liberals would have
used these facts as arguments for claiming a
reduVtion of the military establishment, in
order to return to the country thousands of
bands able to enrich it by productive labor,
and to ease the taxpayer of a large proportion
of his annual burden.
Another centenary looms inthe distance:
that of Kicolaus Copernicus, the astronomer,
born on the 19th of February, 147J. lacing
time by the forelock, the inhabitants of his
native town, Thorn, in Prussia, are already
preparing for the great event. Nor will the
"Society of inenas oi science tat rosen
allow iteelf to be taken by surprise. Four
special points have- been decided upon
already. These are the preparation of an
accurate prize biography of the deceased,
the publication of a monumental album, a
roeda), and an ecclesiastical commemoration,
to take place at Thorn. The biographies are
to be finished by the 1st of Jauuury, 1872,
the moat successful writer to receive five
hundred thalers. They are to be written
"scientifically," to be based upon authentio
documents, and. above all things, to prove
inoontestably the much-questioned Polish
nationality of Copernicus. So that the can
didates will have to start somewhat weighted
by a condition which may make their whole
labor futile in the end.
Frogs aud Science.
It is to be feared that frogs are too sensi
tive for their own happiness, says the J'all
MoU GtKt tte. In the Lancet of last week is
a report of a lecture on experimental physi
olouv by William Rutherford, M. D., F. II.
8. Ii., during the delivery of whioh he exhi
bited eiUin interesting experiments. "Uu
sc ive this froa," said tbe lecturer; "it is re.
carding our manoeuvres with a somewhat
lively air. Now and then it gives a jump. What
tie piecise object of its leaps may be I dare
not pretend to say; but probably it regards us
with tome apprehension and desiies to
escape, ine nog naa Home biigni reason xor
apirehtnfiiou, for the lecturer proceeded, V I
touch one of its toes, and you see it resents
tbe molehtation in a very decided manner,
Wlv does it so Btruekle to get away when I
tjiiith its toes? Douotless, you will say, be.
caiif ft it feels the pinch and would rather
not lave it repeated. I now behead the aui
mat with the aid of a sharp chisel.
'ILe bthdlehs trunk lies as though it were dead.
'Ihe tiinal cord fceems to be suffering from
kI.o-A. Probubly, however, it willsoon
recover from this. Observe that the animal
has row spontaneously drawn up its legs and
am b, tnd it is sittinu with its neok erct itiit
as if it Lad l ot lost its bead at all. I piuch
its tots, and ou vt tLo lrg is at once thrust
t ut as if to Kpurn awuy tbe unending instru
niti.t. lotsit still ft el? and is 'h motion
utiil tbe reeult nf tbe volition ?H That tbe
frog did feel tLere ypp nr-s to be no doubt,"
for Mr. Itulheifxrd related that having once
recbj lfated a frog the animal suddenly
bounded from the table. 11 a then returned
to the animal immediately nnder observation,
pinched its foot again, the frog again "re
senting the stimulation " He then thrust a
needle down the spinal cord. "The limbs
are now flaccid. We may wait a
long sb we please, bnt a pinch of the toes will
never again cause the limbs of this animal to
move." This frog being done for, the leo
turer continued, "I take another frog. In this
case I open tbe cranium and remove the brain
and medulla oblongata I thrust a
pin through the nose and hang the animal
thereby to a support so that it can move it
pendent legs without difficulty. I
gently pinch the toes. The leg of
tbe same side is pulled up. I pinch
the same toes more severely. . Both
legs are thrown into motion." Having thus
clearly proved that the wretched animal could
suffer acutely, Mr. Rutherford observed:
"The cutaneous nerves of the frog are ex
tremely sensitive to acids; bo I put a drop of
acetic acid on tbe outside of one knee. This,
yon Bee, gives rise to most violent move
ments both of arms and legs, and notice par
ticularly that the animal is using the toes of
the leg on the same side for the purpose of
rubbing. the irritated spot. I dip
the whole animal in water into order to wash
away the acid, and now it is all at rest again.
I pnt a drop of acid on the skin over the
lumbar region of the spine. Both
feet are instantly raised to Qthe irritated
spot. The animal is able to localize the seat
of irritation. I wash the acid from
the back, and I amputate one of the feet at
the ankle. I apply a drop of acid
over the knee of the footless leg.
Again the animal turns the leg towards the
knee, as if to reach the irritated spot with the
toes; these, however, are not now available.
But watch the other foot. The foot of the
ether leg is now being used to rub away the
acid. The animal, finding that the object is
not accomplished with the foot of the same
side, uses the other one." These experiments
clearly demonstrate that frogs with or without
heads are not only very sensitive but very in
telligent animals, and under these circum
stances it might be as well not to torture
them more often than can be helped. It is
not very long ago that we remonstrated
against the practice pursued in France of
dissecting live horses; yet it would be diffi
cult to prove that it is more cruel to cut up a
live horse than a live frog, especially as the
latter is evidently sensitive in no ordinary
