A RAGGED REGISTIL
Under this title the well-known lecturer an
Iuthor, Mino Anna E. Dickinson. has put forth
a journal (Harper a Brothers) of piquant and
plcturw4ue experiences, the spicy traits of her
many lecturing tours. The aim of the bok Is
primarily to entertain, and It does this most
Completely. The style is brief, terse and rapid,
as naturally befits jottings made to the music
of the locomotive. There is not a slow page
between the covers of the volume not even
when the movement is up grade, for then the
concert is the liveliest, as every knows who
knows anything of Miss Dickinson. The
book will fitd a wide welcome among the
lovers of anecdote, who rarely have the good
fortune at this day, to meet with a really
original and fresh contribution to the tradi
tional stock. But It Is by no means a book
of mere Idle pleasantry; the author is never
thout a purpose, and It Is often the very ener
with which she drives ag4aInst thewall of
popar prejudice, bigotry and wrong that
es ont the most brillIant scintillationsof her
narrative. The student of character will fiad

ready pinned and mounted forlhis callection.
Bers, for Instance, is one. Miss DIckinson had

Its name) on a lecture appointment. The hotel

strange the president of the association was
anxious for something lively In the evening.
He was afraid the audIence might not like
the lecture on "Jo-ann," because "we don't
read much In this town, and haven't no 11
brary, nor yet many hooks, and there ain't
many of us as has more than heard of her."
I suggested that they should take some other
lecture that might be a bit spicy and so suit

" Even so," I confessed.
" Well, we are going to have first chop what

In spIte of his asseveration, however, my
friend'was not satisfied with the "bilL," for he
shook his head sadly and slow, and at last ven

"Rather the reverse," I was afraid.

What is the Moen9s Shape ?
Is IT AN ELLIPSOID, EGG-SHAPED OR BoUND, LIKE
T he moon perhaps presents a greater number
of preplexing problems than any other member
of the folar system. Although the nearest to
the earth of any of the celestial bodies, but very
Ittle is actually known concerning our satellite.
The whole theory of the mooa, s) laboriously
worked out, years ago, Is found to be at fault,
and Hansen's tables are unreliable. There Is a
ue% lation in the moon's mean motion that can
not be accounted for.
The phenomena of the moon's surface have
been carefully studied for years; but the causes
of the remarkable physical conformations can
be but dimly conjectured. The moon's true
erin Is the most diflicult problemof all. The
moon always presents one face to the earth
but even this fact is a puzzle. It is explained
that the moon's axis points toward the center
of the earth, and.the moon makes a sin le rota
tion during a revolution about the earth, thus
always presenting one side of the earth.
The plane of tne moon's orbit 1s continually
shifting, out this shifting does not change to
any extent the relative position of the moon
to the earth. The earth has a grasp upon her
satellite that will not rmit any shifting of
postion, except a swin motion of the mass
nearest the earth, like hat of a pendulum. it
Ias been abundantly shown by Newton that
1V the moon were a sphere the earth could have
no such grasp. The conclusion is inevitable
I nat the moon is not a sohere. The exact shape
Is still a question of doubt. Lagrange insists
I hat It is an ellipsold,with the longer axis point
1lg to the center of the earth. The extent of
the elongation is a question yet to be settled.
Prof. Richard A. Proctor, in his work on the
moon, says: "However, it need hardly be said
I hat no instrumental means at present in our
possession could show the ellipticity of the lunar
disc." Notwithstanding the assumption of Prof.
Proctor, we believe that it can be demonstrated
that the moon more nearly resembles an egg
tihan it does a ball. Rutherford's stereoscopic
photographs demonstrate it, and the known
las s of motion bear out the tueory. Photogra
phy will probably be the only means of demon
stration, and this will be doubted by those who
believe the revelations of the stereoscope are an
Rutherford's stereoscopic views plainly show
that the moon is shaped like an egg, with the
small end toward the earth. In the stereoscope
the extreme point, or locality nearest the earth,
is not far from the great crater of Copernicus.
From this high point the surface does not re
treat as in a spheie. There Isa rounding away
to a certain point, and then the distance re
treats on a line that is nearly straight. The
plate is so tilted by libration that the observer
can tee the true perspective and foreshortening
of objects on the surface. The phenomenon
could be observed in a telescope of large aper
ture with a power of 50 diastnters.
The slow rotation of the moon and its recent
plastic condition explain Its shape. The moon

re'olves about the earth or in 29 days, 12 hours
and 44 minutes nearly. ffhis motion is exceed
ingly slow-so slow that even at the equator
the centrifugal force is very slight. In oodles
live Jupiter, which revolve with great rapidity,
the equatorial regions bulge out by centrifugat.
force, while there is a contraction at the poles.
In the moon this action is reversed. When the
moon was molten the centrifugal force at the
equator was so slight that there was no bulg
ing, but the earta's attraction drew out the
mass, lengthening It in the direction of the
polar axis, and keeping the axis forever di
rected toward the earth's center. Rutherford
has waited and watched for opportunities to
photograph the moon in such positions as would
give the stereoscopic effect. Libration changed
the moon's face sufticlently to give this effect,
as vill be observed by consulting the photo
graphs. Of the views of the first quarter, one

A lItt1b i was also puzzlig herself about
her rence from heaven to this mundane
sphere, and uestioned her mother. "Did God
and the angs have a funeral when I came
away?" "I presume there was no funeral,'
said the mother. "Well " said the child, "I
presume they all felt bad.'
A little girl, who had fallen out of bed, said
at first: "It was because I slept too near the
place where I got In." Then correcting herself,
she said: "No; It was because I slept too near
the place where I fell out!"
A little boy was asked If he had a good mem

A shrewd little fellow lived with an uncle
who barely afforded him the necessaries of life.
One day the two were out together and saw a
very thin greyhound, and the man asked his
,ephew what made the dog so poor. "I ex

A little boy running along caught his toe in
something and fell on the pavement. "Never
mind. mylittle fellow, It won't hurt to-morrow,'
said a by-stander. To whiuh the boy replied.
"Then I won't cry to-morrow."
A mother was telling her "little hopeful"
am' ng other things, of the leopard that cannot
"change Its spots;" he, however, insisted to the
contrazy, declaring that "when It Is tired of one
spot it can change to another."
A little girl found a shelless egg under the
currant bushes In the garden, and in a high
state of excitement brought it and showed It to
her aunt. "8ee, auntle," said she, 'what I
found under the currant bushes? And I know
the old lien that laid It. I'm just going to put

' A friend of the writer, who resides in a hilly

with her little nephew. a chIld of seven. They
observed a strong lIttle pony drawing its I),d

Harry asked: "-Aow is' It, aunte, that ponies
can go faster than horses?" Then he paused a
moment, and answered himself, "I think I

Another friend very recently overheard the
followirg dialogue, the speakers being her
littledaughter, Maggie, about four yearsold,
and her little son, Wilfred, two and a half.
Master Wilfred had nervously requested his
sister to go with him Into another room for
some purpose, the room In question being at
the time unoccupied. This proposition not
meetIng with Miss Maggie's approval, as she
was just then otherwise engaged, she promptly
said: "There are no lions there, and there are
no t'gers there; go yourself, Wilfred. And, be
side, she added. "you will not be by yourself:
Jesus Christ will be there." "Will he?" gueried
little Wilfred; and, apparently satisned, he
went alone on his expedition.
A talkative girl often annoyed her mother by
making remarks about visitors that came to the
house. On one occasion a gentleman was ex
pected, whose nose had been by some accident
flattened nearly to his face. The mother cau
tioned her child beforehand to say nothing
about this peculiarity. Imagine herconsterna
t on -hen the lttle one exclaimed In the gen
tleman's presence: -Ma! you told me not to
say anything about Mr. Smith's nose; why, he
hasn't got any!"
The confidence a child has In what is said by
Its parents is well illustrated In the following:
A little boy, disputing with his sister, argued
his point In this way: "It is true, for ma says
so. And If ma sayssolt is so, If It aint so!"
Little children have often very tender con
sciences, and are perfectly aware when they
have been "naughty."
A little girl one day said to her mother: "Papa
calls me good, auntie calls me good, and every
body calls me good; but I am not good."
"- am very sorry," said the mother.
"And so am I," saId the child; "but I have got
a very naughty think."
"A naughty what?"
"My think Is naughty Inside of me."
And on hermother inquiring what she meant,
she said: "Why, when I could not ride yester
day, I did not cry nor anything; but when you
was gone I wished the carriage would turn over
and the horses would run away and everything
bad. Nobody knew It; but God knew It, and
he cannot call me good. Tell me, mamma, how
can I be good inside of me?"
A littlefellow four years old prayed thus for
himself: "0 Lord, bless George, and make him
a good boy; and don't let him be naughty again,
never, no never! Because you know when he
is naughty he sticks to it so."
Children will sometimes add to their usual
prayers petitions forsomething they particular
ly desire. A very little boy, who lived with his
aunt, had been often told by her of the fine
time coming when he should be big enough to
go to school and carry his dinner In a little
basket on his arm. One night when he had
finished "Now I lay me down to sleep," etc ,
Eddie asked his aunt to teach him the "big
prayer." She accordingly said, "Our Father,"
[or him, stopping very often, that he might re
peat It. When she said: "Give us, this day,
our daily bread." EddIe drawled out, half
asleep, "Give us, IS day, our daily bread, and a
FInally, another little fellow, who, like many
children, found his boots a very troublesome
part of his tollette, prayed: "0, God, bless
ther and mother and sister Nanny, and
please make my boots go on easy."
Abeut the Bicycle.
It was very Interesting to learn by Weston's
help that a man can travel 550 miles in 144
hours, but It is not less wonderful, and It may
be far more useful, to learn that a man, using
no other motive power than nature has given
him, can cover more than twice the distance in
consiberably less time. That fact was demon
strated at the recent bicycle match in ][Andon,
when the winner, in 6 days of 18 hof-each,
Dovered the enormous distance of 1.404 miles,
and the second man made oIly 14 miles le.
Scores of 200 miles a day were made so often,
and by so many men, as to be scarcely worth
mentioning, but the winner's 261 miles in a
single period of 18 hours, or at the rate of
nearly 15 miles an hour, makes the future and
the past possibilities of personal rapid transit,
so to speak, compare very much as the creeping
of a child contrasts with his strides as a man.
It these men had kept up their traveling
for two days more, only the lack of
a solid road-bed would have prevented
their keeping company with the swiftest
steamer across the Atlantic, andithey actually
dId cover within those 108 hours the distance of
a crow's flight between London and Constanti
nople. WIth the aid of this new "iron horse,"
a mnan may make the "round trip" over twice
the extreme length of the British Island in less
than a week, or, translated into distances
famIliar to us, it wouldhbe child's play to go on a
bIcycle to Coney Island and back by road in an
afternoon, or to Albany along the beautiful
banks of the Hudson, in a day. That such com
parisons as these are not mere flights of fancy
will easily be believed when It is learned that
the machine is regarded in England more as a
useful tool than as a curiosity or a toy, that
country doctors and postmen use them on their
rounds, and that no less than 60,000 have been
made and sold. On such a basis of experience
as these facts give, It is asserted that the use of
the machine does not cause disease, as wan
once though and that any one,even the weakest
or the most tilnd,may use them, as, witha little
experience,this novel mode of progressabecomes
an easy and natural awaiking, with the pleas
ant addition of a deihflexhilaration caused
by the sense of power and the rapid rush
through the sIr. During the match above no
ticed, for instance, the contestants habitually
ate and drank while in motion, and sometimes
"seemed to doze'-but it may be doubted
whether this was when ging at the rate of a
mile in four minutes. In Boston and San Fran
cisco, bicycle riders are not infrequent, iut In
this city they are vei 80 sbly

TIM ACHINVZNirB OF "CKA1," TIM coKrC
DRAUGHTSMAN OF "CRUAOLI."
The death of the Pfhnoe of French Carleatur
IslU Is known. He was known to the public by
the udo=ym of "Cha," a name he assumed
appopriately, as his father, the Marquis
de Noe, a Peer of France, went very near treat
Ing him as the original Noah treated the origi
nal progenitor of the Africans, because, Instead
of following the glorious career of arms. he de
voted himself to the pencil of the caricaturist.
Chain died at the age of 60 years, after having
afforded mirth for 40 years to the readers of the
CAarivart, which may be termed the Punch of
Paris, particularly as Punhe is styled the char
iverts o London, with this difference, however,
that the writers and artists of the Charisr
are bound to be funny or witty every day, Sun
days Included, instead of once a week only.
Chain, It must be said, tried to be an obedient
son, and actually entered the Polytechnic
School, but the demon of art snatched him
away from the mathematical studies which
should have made a proficient artillery officer
of him, and led him flrst to the ataliser of Paul
Delaroche, and afterward to that of Chalet.
In both, however, he was irredeemably addicted
to caticature and comic drawings, and, recog
nii,g his vocation, he abandoned himself to It
exclusively in 1841. His success from the out
Set was Immense, though he had to contend
agalinat such rivals as Gavdrni and Daumlet.
Without being such a consummate artist as
either, he had a t advantage over both. He
was not satirl and bitter lke Gavari. He
was not a political partisan like Daumler, or a
deep-thinking satirist like Henry Monnier; he
contented himself with being witty and amus
ing without hurting the feelings of any politi
cal party or any religious sect. Therein was
seen the stamp of the true French nobleman. I
would not for a moment compare him to Ho
garth. but he has one quality In common with
that great artist. He Is never Immoral, or even

Ergland. As draughtaman. he was far from
having the talent of our much-regretted Leech,
or e, en of several of his successors, but his le
gends-always his own-wereInlin1tely superior
In spark and wit to those of his predecessors and
contemporaries. With English caricaturists it is
the capital drawing that makes the mediocre
legerd pass, as a rule; while Chain's oft-repeat
ed types were merely glanced at to heighten
I he eujoy ment of the brillantly witty legend.
Cham is a good-humored Vaudevilliste. I speak
of him as ir he still lived, for so long as as there
Is in the world any appreciation of gentlemanly,
decent, and inoffensive fun, he will continue to
live In his humerous sketches, skeptical, blase,
with no pretension to lecture or reform the
world, but asking only a smile from his readers
as an ample reward for his efforts to please
1hem. As a rule, he never attacks society, and
when he does It is not as a philosopher who
wants to give it a lesson, but merely to show
the pictut esque aspect of new and extravagant
costimes and attitudes. As I have already
said, he differs from his predecessors, contem
porarIes, and successors, inasmuch as he
always Iavented his own legend, and Inasmuch
as that legend can never hurt the feelings of
any one, no matter what his religion, politics,
profession. or nati(nality may be. He has an
original Invention which no artist had dis
covered before him. To Daumler we owe
Robert Macarie, to Monnier Joseph Prudhomme,
to Gavari A she Lorette, and to Chain the Paris
voyou. Neither before him nor during his life
time hae any one produced the mocking face,
the railing life, the unkempt head, and the gar
ments of the low Parisian vagabond with equal
or approximative effect. The woras he puts
into the mouth of the voyou the attitudes and
gestures be gives him in his sketches, are
always iun, are always Parisian. He is, per
haps, the only caricaturist of whom it can be
said, that in a country like France he has
toucled on all subjects, has always been witty
and amusing, and yet has never shocked or
offended man, woman, or child. This rapid
sketch of the gentleman caricaturist would not
be complete were I not to add that his sayings
In society were as witty as those written in the

11ow Mushroons Grow.
Mr. Julius A. Palmer, Jr., writes to the Bos
ton Transcript: "A few years ago the banks of
the lot opposite the Brunswicx Hctel, in this
city, were sodded and the land leveled to Its
present grade. As the pick of the workman
roke up the soil, a.white substance ran through
every piece. Starting with large branches, it
divided and sub-divided like the veins on the
back of the hand. The smell was very strong,
quickly not Iced on the opposite side of the way.
This subterranean white vein-for it had that
appearance-was nothing but the hidden part
of the Corprinus conatus, a mushroom freely.
eaten now, although 20 years ago thought to
be poisonous. The common name of this sub
stance is 'spawn.' Just as a cutting of the
grape-vine placed In conditions favorable to
growth will shoot up, put forth branches, and
bear fruit, so a part of this coprinus vine trans
planted will continue to ramify and in time
show the result in the form of mushrooms.
The whole earth beneath your feet, on a coun
try walk, is alive with vegetation to a great
depth. This vegetation is just as real, and the
various vines-or, in other words, the thousand
varieties of mushroom spawn-are just as dis
tinct as the hop vine and the woodbine, the ivy
and the virgins' bower that twine their tendrils
above your head. Just where grew this year a
peculiar kind of toadstool, there, next year, and
so on for successive harvests, will you find the
same plant. There is no more mystery about
its appearance than in the wth of the chest
rut on the tree that shdes it. Rapidity of
growth Is not near as general as it is thought
to be. The common mushroom and many
otheis form for days just below the soll. A
heavy dew or an evening shower straightens
the stem of the fungus and expands its top. It
breaks the earth in the night, and the gatherer
is able to find In the morning the white buttons
where he could see nothing the day before. So,
popular error has made mushroom growth pro
verbial for a superficiality which by the fungi,
at least, is underserved. Further, the various
varieties of toadstools succeed each other in
rotation, just as the bloodroot and anemones of
spring are followed by the roses of summer and
the cardinal or gentian of fall. These are not
theories that are here advanced; they are the
results of several years' careful watching of the
growth of this order of plants. On the very
spots where, in 1874, I gathered mushrooms,
lhere, in 1879, I find the. identical variety, so
that the lover of fungus may have his regular
harvests with all the certainty of the farmer
who looks for the return of his wheat crop or
the results of his cranberry culture. With lust
that degree of certainty, no more and no less,
for, as certain years are favorable to the pro
duction of certain fruits, as the potato crop
sometimes falls and the apple orchard is barren,
so the mushroom spawn, usually producing
abundantly its expected variety, may pass a
year, or even, under difficulties, becomeextinct.
The blight which may visit all life, animal or
vegetable, does not fail to fall at times upon
my humble friends."

characteristic writings were and are the result
of notes which he has gathered In and from his
daily observations. From these notes he selects
those on the subject upon which he wishes to
write, and getting them arranged in proper or

the beauty and entirety of his paragraphs."

IS THERE TO BE A NzW ENoLis RavoLuTiON?
There are political and moral considerations
Involved In this (the English land) question as
well as the purely commercial. It is a political
consideration of very great moment that, while
t:e aggregate population and general pros.
perity of these Islands has been for many
years steadily on the increase, the agricultu
ral population has been decreasing. All over
England our purely agricultural villages are
less populous than they were a few years
ago. * * It is a moral consideration of
possibly more gravity that In the event of
the soil, property and power of this country
ever teing monopolized by fewer and still fewer
hands, even by processes quite spontaneous
aLd unexceptionable, there may arise a fear
ful reaction. Revolutions do not proceed by
ru:e and logic. They are not even reasonable,
and the more they are exa"lined the less they
can be justified. They may have receiv6 some
Impulse from philosophers and theorists, but
they are generally rude deliverances frim great
facts, often the quiet growth of ages, that nave
acquired tyrannic fol ce and overweening mag
nitude. There certainly would arise danger to
the state and constitution of this country if the
number of landowners and tenant farmers
should be very much diminished, the aggre
gate population beceming meanwhile much
greater, and retaining its present taste for
rural scenes and occupations.-[Londo se,
