Mrs. William Thaw, widow of the great philanthropist of Pittsburg, has authorized the building of one of the finest spectroscopes in the country for the needs of the Allegheny observa tory. No expense is to be spared, the spectroscope to be as finely constructed and adjusted as the one in the cele brated Lick observatory. The construction, mode of use and the effect of burning glasses was known to the ancients even a full thou sand years before the time of Archi medes, who is said to have constructed a burning glass which he used to a good advantage in reducing several Roman war ships to ashes at a time when they were besieging Syracuse. It has been shown that the white elm of our bottom lands and groves yield, one year with another, at a very moderate estimate, too, 329,000 seeds. Now, an elm ordinarily lives at least a full hundred years, and, consequently, in the course of that comparatively short life produces nearly 3,000,000 grains, all coming from one original seed.

The Literary society of Finland is by far the most active, as it is the oldest society of folklore in the world. It was established in 1831, in order to gather oral material as well as manu scripts relating to the archaeology and linguistics of the race.

Mr. Flamand, who has been study ing the inscribed stones in the south eastern part of Algeria, has found many rocks upon which men, women and children, who were evidently pre historic, are represented. The stones show the figures of horses, cattle, ostriches and elephants, though the elephant has not inhabited this regfon within historic times. French factories supply dentists with rings upon which are strung thin short metal bars.each carrying a tooth at its extremity. There are twenty five. of these sample teeth that run all the way from nearly white to a shade that is almost olive. Some one of the twenty-five usually almost matches the patient's natural teeth, and, at any rate, enables the dentist to match the teeth by application at the factory. An Atlanta lawyer dislocated his arm while making a gesture to emphasize his speech. STICKING TO THEIR POSTS. Engineers Who Face Danger with Small Chance of Coming Oat Alive. "Yes, I've been pretty badly scared several times since I began railroad ing, fifteen years ago," said an old freight conauctor 10 a rvansa.3 vilv Star man, "and don't really know which one was the worst, although, of course, I always thought the last was. We're all of us human, and if a man tells you he don't get scared railroad ing don't you believe him. I've seen lots in the papers about heroic engi neers who stayed at their posts and sacrificed their lives trying to save others. When -you show me one man that take3 those chances for humanity's sake, as they say.l'll show you 100 who stayed just because they were scared to jump or didn't have time. "A man thinks mighty quick some times, but he doesn't always have time to think of anybody that's behind him. When a fellow's running across the country a mile a minute in pitch dark and all of a sudden a big headlight flashing in his faca or a pair of red lights show up in front, he .is mighty apt to forget what the papers will say about a hero at his post. If he can move at all hp shuts off and throws her over and plugs her with one hand, working the air just because it's second nature and he can't help him self. It's what they call mechanical, and a man will do it without really knowing- what he's doing. Then 'he'll jump if ne can. "Talking about these heroes, I'm one of them myself. I've a big reputation up north as a man who'd stick to his post. It was when I first went to rail roading. I'd been raised in my superin tendent's family, and when I got old enough I went to firing on the Mil waukee. About three month's after I'd got a regular run I was out on a freight over night- We'd had a rush anal was pretty tired, and about 12 the head brakeman took the fire for awhile and I went to sleep. I was sit ting on the front end of the seat, dead to the world, when a couple of red lights on the tail end of a caboose showed up. The freight ahead of. us had broken in two and we caught the hind end in a cut. The engineer shut off. but he didn't have time to throw her over and plug her, and he and the brakeman both lumped without even waking me up. "We hit the caboose pretty hard, I tell you, but, instead of breaking her up or ditching, the pilot went under the car and raised it right up till it slid, half-way up the boiler. The shock woke me up, but I was only half awake then. She was moving along slow yet. and when I saw the red lights on the caboose the first thing that struck me was that we were on a siding and that the engineer had got off, leaving the nnorinn in forward motion and shn had leaked or sprung her throttle and gone into another freight on the siding ahead of us. - "I jumped over to the engineer's side and threw her over and plugged her hard. It didn't take much to stop her, and 1 stood there for minute com menting profanely on the engineer's leaving her in forward motion; and yet if I had been wide enough awake to think: of lumping you bet your sweet life some other fellow would have been the hero and I'd tried to beat the engineer and brakeman out of the cab window." GEOGRAPHICAL NAMES. :vrv Changes in Their Spelling Ordained by the Government Board. Comparatively few person are aware that there is a Government board for the express purpose of deciding on the proper spelling of geographical names. This board was appointed by the President in 1890, and is made up of Professor Mendenhall, of the Coast and Geodetic Survey, and nine, other government officials. The purpose was to secure uniformity of nomencla ture in all government publication The board has adopted certain princi ples of general guidance and has al ready settled, as far as the govern ment is concerned, many disputed points in nomenclature. During its first year it decided over 2,000 cases. Aniong the departures approved by the board are the following: lhe avoidance, as far as practicable, of the progressive forms of names; the drop ping of the hnal "h" in the termination "burg;" the abbreviation of "borough" to "boro;" the spelling of the word "center" as here given; the discontinu ance of the use of hyphens in connect ing parts of names; the omission wherever practicable of the letters C. H. (Court House) after the names of county seats; the simplification of names of more than one word by their combination into one word; the avoid ance of the use of diacriti characters; the dropping of the word "city" and "town" as parts of names. Separate words.such as El Dorado, thus become Eldorado, Washington C. H. simply becomes Washington. There will be no "h" on rittsburg hereafter in anv Government publication. Some of the official changes are as follows: The old spelling, now dis carded, being given in parentheses: Barree (Barre), Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania; Bering (Behring) Sea, Benicia (Benecia), California; Bentleys- ville (Bentlevville), Washington Coun ty, Pennsylvania; Bern (Berne), Berks County,Pennsylvania;Bernville(Berne- viiie); Bethel (tsethai), in both iuiton and Berks Counties, Pennsylvania; Bis marck (Bismark), in all names where it occurs, Blaine (isiaine), Perry Coun ty, Pennsylvania; Baluchistan (Be- loochistan), India; Barbados Island (Barbadoes), West Indies; Barstow (Barstows and Barslow), Massachu setts; Chile (Chili), South America; Cape Cleare (Clear), Alaska; Colom bia (Columbia), South America; Gua deloupe Island (Gaudeloupe), West Indies; Haiti (Hayti), West Indies; Helgoland Island (Heligoland), North Sea; Hongkong and similar words generally spelled with two words are made one; Pribilof Island (Pribylov), Alaska; Puerto Kico Island (Porto Rico), West Indies; Saint Croix Island and town (banta Uruz, West Indies, Salvador (San Salvador), Central America; Unalaska(Ounalashka, etc.), Alaska; Brothers Valley, Somerset County, Pennsylvania, and all similar names will be used hereafter without apostrophe; Gloucester Harbor, Mas sachusetts, takes the place of Cape Ann Harbor; Canal Dover disappears to give place to Dover; Dorrance (Dor ranceton), Luzerne County, Pennsyl vania; Edgmont (Edgemont), Dela ware County, Pennsylvania, Ephrata (Ephratah), Lancaster County, Penn sylvania; Findlay (Findley), Allegheny (Jounty, Jfennsyivania; iishers iroint, opposite Philadelphia, without any apostrophe; Iranklintown (irankhn) York County, Pennsylvania; Beirut Svria: Bermuda (Bermudas); Kongo (Congo), Africa, etc. A thousand illustrations might be given of what this government board is doing, but the above will show that it is designed to have considerable in fluence on the spelling of geopraphical names. Increase of Penalty. The old penalty against a German soldier or sailor of the standing army or navy who left the fatherland was a fine of 200 marks or forty davs impris onment. That has now been raised to 1,000 marks' fine or imprisonment for lour months. A Sensible Girl.

(HEAP Gorse! "HE SILKWORMS OF THE OCEAN. Mollusks Which Weave Threads That Are Most Wonderful to .Mankind. "The mussel may well be called the spinner of the sea," said a concholo gist to a Washington Star writer. "It makes and weaves its silken threads very much as the spider does. An important part of its anatomy is a slender and very muscular foot of tri angular shape, under and behind which is a gland that secretes a viscid aud half-liquid fluid. This fluid runs into a groove in the foot, where it quickly 'sets' and becomes a firm thread. The thread is pulled out by the withdrawing of the foot, another thread is formed, and so on until the mussel has tied itself securely by ever so many strong cords. "It is very interesting to see how the mussel manages to climb up the perpendicular sides of rocks or piles by means of these threads, which are stretched out and attached by the foot, one after another, in the direc tion in which the animal wishes to climb, each one being fastened a little higher up than the last. Thus the heavy shell is drawn up gradually in much the same manner as that em ployed by some spiders when suspend ing an unusually large victim. You would hardly imagine that so small a creature could be a helpful servant to man, and yet the spinning and weav. ing of this humble mollusk have been turned to most valuable account. At the town of Bideford, in Devonshire, is a long bridge of twenty-four arches, crossing the Torridge river. The tides flow with such swiftness at this bridge that no mortar will hold the masonry of the arches. But the corporation of the town keeps boats for the purpose of bringing mussels from a distance, which are applied to every interstice of the stone work. The masonry is entirely supported aud held together by the strong : threads these bivalves spin, and the law makes it a crime, punishable by transportation, to re move any of them. ' "Saving spent the first few days of their existence as free-swimming ani-r mals, after being hatched from the eggs, mussels usually fasten them selves together and to a common ob iect, so as to form large clusters. Thus, by means of a multiplied system of ropes, they secure so firm an anchor age as to be able to resist the most violent storms. However, they can let go when they want to, and creep about until they find a better resting place. Their closely-knitted colonies do much to prevent wear and tear by the waves on certain portions of the gea coast. Like oysters, they enter tain small parasitic crabs, which make their homes in the shells of the living mollusks. These little crustacean boarders are or a ainerent species from the oyster crabs. Young seals depend largely for food upon the big arctic mussels, which are plentiful as far north as Point Barrow, in the Arc tic ocean. On the coast of Alaska and as far sdutbas TugeT sound-Hi ussels constitute the only molluscan supply. there being no oysters and very few clams in that region, and. the native women and children are constantly gathering them. "The Alaskan method of cooking mussels is to boil them. A bunch of ten, twenty, or perhaps forty pounds "weight is put into a pot and when the shells gape the water its poured off, the people gathering around and picking out the "meat with their fingers. Some times the bivalves are roasted also. They are very little prized as an arti cle of diet on the Atlantic coast, partly because such a wealth of oysters and clams is at hand, but the aboriginal Indians were very fond of them and consumed them in great quantities, as is proved by the mounds of shells com posing the debris of ancient feasts. which remain to this day. The Dela- wares, and doubtless other tribes, em ployed mussel shells, the edges of which were sharpened on the gritty rock, for pincers to pull out their beards with. "Mussels are much used abroad as food. They are bred in France in In closures of sea water,f rames and hang--ing ropes being submerged for them to attach themselves to. At intervals these ropes or frames are hauled up and made to yield their crop. For the same purpose 'parks,' as they are called, are planted inthe shallows of the North Sea. Trees, from which all but the larger branches have been cut, are stuck into the bottom at such a distance from shore that the upper portions of them shall be laid bare at low water. After four or five years they are raised, stripped, and replaced with others. In the Bay of Keil, Ger many,. 1,000 tons of mussels are raised in a similar fashion yearly. Mussels are propagated in the Adriatic on ropes extended between poles rammed into the ground. The ropes are stripped once in eight months. The mussel beds of Great Britain are worth hun dreds of thousands of dollars annually. "The mollusk, which has been poet ically called the 'silkworm of the sea,' is a mussel of the Mediterranean, known tm science as the 'pinna.' It spins a kind of thread so beautiful and fine that in Sicily the material is woven into . gloves and "stockings. These articles are very costly, and have not bee'n thought unworthy pres ents for a pope." SNAKES IN IRELAND. Results of an Attempt to Tntrodnce Ophi dians Into the Green Isle. In 1831 James Cleland, an Irish gen tleman, being curious to ascertain whether the climate or soil of Ireland was naturally destructive to the ser pent tribe, purchased half a dozen of the common harmless English snakes (natrix torquata) in Covent Garden market in London. Bringing them to Ireland he turned them out in his gar den at Kathgael in the county of Down, and in a week afterward one of them was killed at Milecross, about three miles distant. The persons into whose hands this strange monster fell had not the slightest suspicion that it was a snake, but, considering it a cu rious kind of eel, they took it to Dr. J. L. Drummond, a celebrated Irish nat uralist, who at once pronounced the animal to be a reptile and not a fish. The idea of a 'rale living sarpint' hav ing been killed within a short distance of the very burial place of St. Patrick caused an extraordinary sensation of alarm among the country people. The most absurd rumors were freely circulated and credited. One fai'-see-ing clergyman preached a sermon in which he cited this unfortunate snake as a token of the immediate com mencement of the millennium, while another saw in it a type of the ap proach of cholera morbus. Old proph ecies were raked up, and all parties and sects for once united in believing that the snake foreshadowed "the be ginning of the end," though they very widely differed as to what that end was to be. Some more practical minded persons, however, subscribed a considerable sum of money, which they offered in rewards for the de struction of any other snakes that might be found in the district, and three more of the snakes were not long afterward killed within a few miles of the garden where they were liberated. The remaining two snakes were never very clearly accounted for. The writer, who resided in that part of the country at the time, well remembers the wild rumors among the more illiterate classes on the appearance of those snakes, and the bitter feelings of an gry indignation expressed by educated persons against the very fortunately then unknown person who had dared to bring them to Ireland.
