We all understand that our eyes are somewhat like little photographic dameras, with sets of lenses, with stops tQ cut off tinnecessary light, and having arrangemeits for focub'ng, anD everything else- that is'. needed to form the little colored pietare on the sensitive retlna at the back of .the eye. The cyes of all backboned creatures- axe, Indeed, so much itr&e cameras that photo graphs have actually beven made through the eyes of some of the large-domestic ani-: mals. But any one whq hias examined in sects at all must have noticed that their eyes are very different from our own. For, in the first place, each eye Is often larger than all the rest of the head. There is nb Iris. and no pupil. Then, too, an insect does not have to turn his head and look straight at anything, as we do when we wish to see clearly. One of the first things that we r.otlce about an Insect's eyes Is that it is cut up into hundr s of little surfaces or facets, or is. as we lay, "a compound eye." Now, each of these facets is at the end of a little tube with blackened sides, filled with a clear jelly, and the entire eye is built up of these little tubes side by side. An insect's eye is not a "camera eye." like our own, but what is called a "mosaic eye," after the pictures which are made by putting together little bits of colored glass and stone. We can get an Idea of how this sort of eye acts if we look through a small roll of paper. When we do this we, of course. see only the spot at which we point the tube. Now, the insect's eye is like a large number of such tubes put together into a ball. The insect looks out through all the tubes at once, and sees the spot at the end of each. Thus the animal with his two eyes looks in all direct'ons at the same time, sad sees as many spots of color as there are tubea in both eyes-several thou sand. perhaps, all combined into a single pletur like the pattern of a carpet. We may get some Idea of an Insect's power o! sight it; while looking straight at some ob jeet, we notice what there Is at the sides as far around as one can see. We can then see .shtpes only dimly. but we ,an see col ors perfectly well, and can even detect anything moving almost behind our heads. An insect seems to see every object as we see one thing when we look at another. It s(es Fhapes vaguely, but shades or calor perfectly well, and knowa at once if any thing near t moves. The compound eye appears to be good only for seeing things at a distance, and !s not pracically of much use at short range. So ne.irly all Insects have one, two or three little tyes, which, so far as can be made out. are ato help them Fee things near at hand. These oeelii. as they are called. are somewhat like our eyes, but much simpler, and they appear as minute dots on the front of the head between the compound eyes. How much an Insect sees with these ocell; no one really knows. But if we watch one and notice how much he seems to depend on the sense of touch in his ante'nnae, it will'app'air as though he acts more like a partially blind man feeling the ground with his stiek than like a be'ng who sees clearly as we do.

BOWED TO INEVITABLE MICMIGAN PEOPLE DID NOT AT TEND MERTING. Association Will Oppose Any Reduc tion So Far as the Philippines Are Concerned. All opposition on the part of the Ameri can Beet Sugar Association to the ratifica tion of the Cuban reciprocity treaty was withdrawn at a final meeting of that body held last night at the Arlington Hotel. There had been several meetings during the day without result. After the meeting Henry T. Oxnard, who had just been- re elected president of the association, de clared that the action, although not unani mous, might be considered the -action of the association. Senator. Burrows, who acted as spokesman for the delegation to the association for Michigan, said that the statement of Mr. Oxnard In this respect was undoubtedly correct. H'owever, the Michigan people had declined to iattend-the meeting at which the action was taken. The senator indleated that some action might be taken todly on the subject by the Michigan beet growers. The hesitancy of the Michigan people in participating in any action of this kind is explained in the tact that at a meeting in that .state only a short time ago resolutions were adopted reiter &ting the hostility of the state association to the Cuban treaty. Power of OppositionLost. The potency of any oppositiorr that may now be made to- the treaty in vieW of the aption of the national association last night, and the divided condition of those who did not participate. is regarded as absolutely lost. 'We have. simply bowed to the Inevitable." remarksed Mr. Oxnard, as he emerged from :he convention after the resolutions which withdrew opposition had been adopted. "It 6 evident that a Crban treaty will ulti nately result. and the association believes 'hat enore injury results to the beet sugar ndustry of this 'country by having the rsent agitation and uncertainty than by laving the treaty ratified at once." While yielding to a reduction in tariff 'rom Cuba: the association resolved to still appose any such reduction so far as the Philippine Islands are concerned. The bill -educing the Philippine tariff which has re -ently passed the House of Representatives was mentioned in the resolutions adopted mn this subject, and it was declared to be Lgainst the interests of the association and ts opposition necessary. The Cuban Resolution. The Cuban resolution recites as a pre kmble the belief of the association that the proposed reduction of 20 per cent will be imited in good faith for a period of five rears to that amount, and will Insure to :he manufacturers of beet sugar in the Inited States a five-year peripd of relief Irom the harmful agitation of t)le subject which is now harassing the industry and naking its prosperity and healthful growth in impossibility, and fofrther thA the pub ic welfare of the United Stategas a nation ias become involved in the conhideration of he proposed treaty, and while this asso !lation remains of the opinion. that a dis :urbance of the tariff relations between L'uba and the United States is from any standpoint unwarranted and unwise, it is riot willing to permit the commercial in terests of its members to stand in the way rof adoption of a public policy which has :he approval of the administration and lead ing members of Congress of both political parties. . --- - The resolution reads: That the American Beet Sugar Association tas determine4 to withdraw its opposition to the ratiflcation A the sAid treaty- but that it respeetfully recommends to 'tie Senate committee on foreign relations that the eighth article of. the treaty be amended so as to express in piec'ise language what is intended to be 4eured by the treaty to the beet sugar manufacturers of the United States-name ly, that during the period of five years cov ercdi by said treaty no sugar-exported from he republic of Cuba shalt be admitted Into the United States at a reduction of duty greater than 2U per centum of the rates of luty thereon as provided by the tariff act >A the United States approved July 24, 187. The Philippine Situation. The Philippine situation is explained in the preamble to the resolution gin that sub lect. as follows: "The House of Representatives of the United States has passed a measure reduc lng the duties on Philiippine products en tering the United States to 25 per cent of the rates of duty as established by the act of July 24. 1897. All of the principal pro ilucts of these islands, with the single ex ceptions of sugar and -tobacco, already en joy free entrance to the markets of the United States. The value of those articles already enjoying such free access to our markets comprises more than 75 per cent of the total exportations of those islands. The United States now annually imports from the various countries of the world ver $10.,000,000 of those duty free pioducts. The United States is unable to produce those articles, thus affording forever -an unlimited market for all the Philippine Is lands can produce in such products. The United States can produce nil its sugar and tobacco. "Resolved. That the American Beet Sugar Association does hereby protest against the bnnecessary stimulation of the sugar and tobacco industries of the Philippine Islands by means of further tariff reductions, thus encouraging the people of those islailds, wrhere labor is but- a few cents a day, to produce those things which this country can produce, rather than such commodities as we are unable to produce. "Aiso. be It further resolved, That this association is unalterably opposed to the proposed introduction of Chinese contract labor into either the Hawaiian or the Phil ippine Islands." Two Opposition Vote. The adoption of these two-resolutions In the convention was not without opposition. 3. C. Clark, representing a California fac tory,- and R. 0. Wagner, a Wisconsin man ufacturer, voted against the action and also opposed it in argument. Officers of the association were elected as follows: President, Henry T. Oanard; vice president, F. K. Carey of Baltimore; ecretary, Truman (3. Palmer of Chicago; treasurer. Julius Streh of Detroit, Argument of President Carey. Francis K.

Special Correspondence of The Evening Star. SREXD BANK, N. J., January 8, 1903. The late William Curtis of New Yorks, the father of athletics. used to say that Redt3ank was the Ice yachting cpnter of America. Mr. Curtis knew what he was talking about, havirg gained his knowledge'in this re3pect while acting as referee of -the national championship skating races decided here several years ago. ' It was when Johnny Johnson wrested the championship title from Joe Donoghue, theboy from Newburg, who for years held the championship hon or&. As a corroboration of "Father Bill's" statement, it is only necessary to visit Red Bank on a- brisk, cold winter day when an ice yacht race Is on. Even the natives of the town, who have been familiar with ice boat.ng for a half century or more, take such an interest in the sport that they couldn't be hired to remain away from a race. This Is especially true when a big event Is to take place, like the sailing of a pennant race. Naturally, the -fun draws the curiously inclined who have never seen an ice boat race. The latter-class quickly become interested- and excited, and conse quently- their visits during the remainder of the ice boating season are very frequent. An Exciting Sport. There is certainly an element of excite ment in an ice boat race that causes every nerve in the body to tingle. Imagine, if you will, a boat body shaped like a Greek cross, with a mast sticking out where the upper sectAon of the cross intersects the longer piece of wood. The mainsail and Jib, if the yacht be sloop rigged, are like those of a regular yacht. The day is cold and the wind Is blowing so strongly that it Is well nigh impossible to stand upright on the green, flinty Ice. The yacht's sails are nearly burabing with the force of the wind upon them, and the boat is skimming along at the rate of nearly a mile a minute. Two or ,three men in a small cockpit at the extreme end of the cross are holding the boat on her course, and when the craft spins around a stalee boat they are com pelled to hold on tight to keep from being thrown out of the crowded pit. - Ofttimes, when sailing too close to the wind, the yadht shows a tendency to capsize, and the windward runner is more than once lifted high in the air, only to come down with a "bump" on the Ice when the boat is paid off a bit. This is only a rough picture of TO9 I ff the excitement attending a sail In a fast tce boat on a breezy day. To, thoroughly appreciate it, one must see the fun, or else take a r!de. it will not be your last ride, unless the boat takes a notion to upset, In/ul wig The eitemenacttndingea saiinh fat icebat rov at this pday. wil thoonghle appreciat witnTe must seruorethe caeade. rie wil aonie youeeat rfide, unled the ceboatmtaesnotionce to upe acthe you baty which youre slidn orte away on yorback house gince lat awoinutea tolbe tarden owd of amuiosead spcttos which had bee S winbg.s eao' Theing; new tin seassnfor the Noradtohb Shcred;sbury runershadistolae willefuonly inoothed dwin The srecenedtro weather coaerao-nd there as a ieohet of ithe, dthe worce botencommished to e h batin Trhm borthe wihhaer' sporntore tolb taken wok, aetins pa'nty put t gther.

Chicago Bacteriologist Advises Its Use to Stop Fever Infection. From the Chicago Chronicle. Coicagoans who rur any reason fall to bollithe water they drink are advised to put plenty of lemon juice In it and thus render typhoid fever germs practically harmless. This advice, so timely In view of the bad condition of the lake water, is based upon cog!nents made by Dr. W. K. Jacques, the badferiologist in charge of the. city labo ""atiry, upon alleged experiments recently ma#s by European bacteriologists to dis covr a means. of protecting the public "heifth, but particularly soldiers, against ty phjd Infection from impure water. Ty phod fever is a water-borne disease and sol dieiq have neither the facilities nor the, -inelination to purify their drinking water by 'boiling it. "lhe European School of Tropical Medi cinO' said Dr. Jacques yesterday. "has beel experimenting a long time to discover a rpeans of protecting the health of troops On !the march against the impurities of the stagnant water of the tropics.. They have at last produced a tablet of citric acid whih best answers the purpose. "gmon juice Is one form of citric acid and if not too greatly diluted will so injure .'typhold bacteria as to make them practi cally harmless. "The typhoid germ has filaments at either en& something like, the fins of a fish, by which it propels itself. The effect of lemon juice or any other citric acid Is to shrivel up those filaments, which prevents the germ from penetrating the tissue or entering the blood." While Dr. Jacques advocates the liberal use of lemon-junce as a preventative of ty phoid for those who lack facilities for boil ing the lake water. he further says that neither citric acid nor lemon juice has any curative properties after typhoid fever has developed. "Typhoid fever," he said, "is caused by the germs penetrating the tissue and en tering the blood. They do not remain in the intestines, as was formerly supposed. Once th'e tissues have been penetrated and the blood becomes infected the germs are be yond the reach of citric acid. They are af fected by it only when they are fully ex posed. Even then they will not be de stroyed, but simply deprived of their power to penetrate the tissue and infect the blood." The discovery of the European bacteriolo gists in this respect is not altogether new; according to the same authority, as many attempts were made during the civil war to induce the northern troops in the south to use lemon juice freely in drinking water as a preventive of typhoid, and several of the oldest practitioners in Chicago have prescribed lemon juice for years for the same purpose. CAUSES OP INDIGESTION. How Certain Ills Which Afect .thie Stomach Become Chronic. From the Youth's Companion, The causes of chronic indigestion are man ifold, but usually, and almost always in the beginning, even when the stomach finally becomes actually diseased, the condition is due to improper eating. It may not be that the sufferer eats too much-although very many people who are not gluttons do that but be eats improperly. One who suf~ers from dyspepsia, or who wishes to avoid such suffering, should remember that the stomach cannot do all the work of diges tion. Before it enters the stomach the food must be finely divided and mixed with the saliva, which is as certainly a digestive fluid as is the gastric juice. Gladstone, it Is said, used to chew every mouthful of food thirty two times, one for each tooth, before he swallowed it. Long mastication of the food is useful in many ways. In the first place, it should ap peal to all who delight in the pleasure of the table, for if the food is savory it is .tasted longer and better when well chewed, Again, long mastieation mixes the food well with the saliva and begins Its diges tion, and thin sweetens the starchy food and improves its taste. Finally, If one eats slowly he wHil have les time to eat much ande hunger is appeased and a feeling of satiety is- atetan befote the stomach can become overladed. While one in chewing, the food should he moved fro~m side to side of the mouth that the samitire with the saliva may be more thorough. : -Too-much Stuld shetld uot he taken with the tues, but it is not.= wise plan' to take anoa. insaoetinnes rsenamme="d.

Aalet of stewed apples, eaten .three times a day, it. worked wonders in cases of confirmed drunkenness. givingr'1te"ltietit in a'bho lute distaste for alcohol in -any tfotw The pineapple Is another fruit most val uable in throat affections. Indeed, it has saved many a life of a diphtheric patient. The juice squeezed from, a ripe pine Is toe finest thing in the world for cutting the fungualike membrane which coats the throat in diphtheria, and if used In. time never fails to cure. After a' severe attack of influenza the throat is often relaxed and the tonsils pain ful. An old-fashioned remedy still in use in many parts of the west of England is a conserve of rosss., .TiK p1& scgt of jam made from the hips of tne conlion wild rose. It is not unpleasant in tasta and cer tainly possesses strongly astringent prop erties. To eat a grape a minute for an hour at a time, and to repeat this performaince three or four times a day, eating very little else meantime but dry bread, may seem a monotonous way of spending the time. This treatment works wonders for thin, nervous anemic people whose digestions have got out of order from worry or overwork. It is no mere quack prescription, but a form of cure .recognized and advised by many- well known physicians. Grapes are, perhaps. the most digestible of any fruit in exist ence. A cordial made from the blackberries Is greatly recommended by the Devonshire country folk as a cure for colic, and many a farmer's wife makes blackberry cordial as regularly as elderberry wine. The lat ter, heated and mixed with a little c~nna mon, Is one of the best preventives known against a chill. The flowers, too, of the elder come in useful. An sointment made by layering them in mutton suet and olive oil is moat Soothing in case of boils. Now adays doctors- forbid gouty patients to eat any kind of sweet foods, but; recommend them to eat at least a dozen walnuts a day. There is no doubt that walnuts are most useful to- gouty subjects, ora in eases of chronic rheumatism. Swelling goes down and pain decreases. Excessive Bading From the New Bedford Standard. A Chicago newspaper says that "among the contagious diseases of the age exces sive and sterile reading must be enumerat ed.". It takes the matter seriously, even solemnly. "The world," It avers, "has gone mad over books. They have taken the place of every other retich."~ Hardly as bad as that, we think; but there is a good deal of truth in the averment. Because the fetich worshipper is found among men whose boast is that they never read a book, and there are even those who make a fe tich out of that peculiartty. . However, it may be doubtful if a large share of the reading of the day is of real benefit to the reader. Much of what passes for reading Is not reading; It is merely vacuous glanc ing along the page. We see people take up a magrazine, for example, a magazine filled with reading of Interest and worth, and we see them skim, skim, skim; here a stop at the title of an article, there a pause at a picture, now and then a slowing up at a page. The magazine is put down with the rema~rk that It is strange how easily sueh a bulky pamphlet can be read so quickly. Books go in something the same way. Here Is the book skimmers' library, with, Its patrons trying to keep up with Its output of two, three, five, a dosen books in a week, and calling the race with the p rinters cultivation oif theIr minds. Read nglike that is Intemperate-the producer of mental stupefaction at the end. There are patrons of the free public library and of the circulating librpries iu this city who r'aed with the me excited assiduity that the victim of alcoholic habits follows his morning and noon and evening-drame--and the habit comaes to sbout fte same thing in the end. They pour' novel after novel Into what passes for thieir brains, and get out of the procemsahe. sterilisation of whatever mind th do have.

Row Instruments Used by Magicians and Swindlers Are Made From the New York Eveting Mot. The aphorism of Barnum that the public love3 to be humbugged finds illustration in the success of the oculists in this country who sell "magic mirrors' to credulous in dividuals for $5 and $10, wh!ch cost one tenth those figures. Some of these charia tans, *ith sublime assurance. have called the law to their aid to protect them from rivals, or it may be. to add prestige to their merchandise, as several of the mirrors are, or claim to be, covered by letters patent. copyright or trade-marks. The mirror makers can justify thdir call ing with precedents numberless. The belief that a bit of bright metal or glass.could be so charged by the black art that, It would reflect in visible form the invisible things or beings about us Is as old as civilization. Egypt and Babylon. Persia and Ind'a. Japan and China, have made and used these occult instruments from early times. Those which are made in the far east possess qualities which at one- time were puzzling. but which, when the secret was discovered. were found Ingenious utilizations of optical laws. The simplest is the Japanese lucky mir ror, a fair model of which the writer siw in a Broadway shop a couple of days ago. This is a fiat plate and handle made of a metal resembling steel. One side Is so highly burnished that It reflects as well an the best silver-backed looking glass. The reverse is chased in low relief with fltures of vines, birds, clouds, and ideographs or talismans. When employed in the usual fashion-it does not differ from an ordinary mirror, but when a large beam of light is thrown upon it and reflected upon a dark wall or ceiling. in the reflected circle ap pears a luminous face, ideograph, or other figure. The result is secured in the original welding or casting of the mirror, when a piece of metal of different compos'tion shaped like the figure It is to produce Is fused into the circumjacent ma. A similar effect Is produced in silvered mirrors by just laying on the reflecting character in one kind of tin foil and filling in the rest of the surface wit) a fo1t of the same appearance,' but different redecting quality. Akin to this style of work are the migic lacquers which at certain oblique angies disclose figures and lines which are invisible when looked upon at right angies to the lacquer's surface. Oddest of the oriental mirrors are those set at the bottom of a cylinderor truncated cone, whose sur face is waved or undulating. The base re flects in ordinary manner: the sides in such a fashion as to produce foci or focal circles at various points. From one point of view the looker sees a faint halo about his face at the bottom of the cylinder; from a sec ond point a misty human face alongside of his own; from a third a face looking at him through his reflected eyes. The principle which underlies these odd images is the same as that used by Cooke and Maskelyne in Landon in produecng their "ghosts," and seems to have been em ployed with great rkill by Cagliostro -in the eighteenth century. Letters Written in Wrath. From the Besuten 'ristian Re.glster. .. Because everybody does not know or re member the story of Abraham Lincoln and Secretary Stanton we tell it once more. It is good for use. Stanton had been exasper ated by -the conduct of one of the generais in the field. He complained of him to Pree ident Lincoln, and said he was going to give it to him hot. "That's right." said Lincoln. "Write him a letter and tell him just what you think of him. Make a clean breest of It." With heat Secretary Stan ton wrote his letter and showed it to the President. Then he folded it to be inciosed and directed. President IUncoln said: "'What are you going to do with that letter, Stanton?" "Why, I am going to send it to him. of course." "Oh no," said Lincoln; "pnt it in the waste basket. You never ought to send a letter of that kind. You've . got the thing off your mind now; let it drop."
