Prajlns Ajalnst Time
An undergraduate in one of tha unl
WersitJes not bo very far from New York
tells tfco following story of how one of
the Greek letter fraternities in the insti
tation recently captured the presidency
loLpflBof the literary societies it atime
When the office was forsoine reason par
l Ocularly to he desired
First we made a coalition he slid
with the fraternity whose man was al
ready in the chair Counting their fel
> ows and oar own and the fellows of an
other fraternity we found that we had
just one man more than the opposition
part But when the society met on its
tegiran vcning ono of our own fellows
nma5ldiK lWajJ rte relied upon was
< t was time for the society to
bo called to order and the first business
would be the election of officers The
fellows on the opposition were triumph
ant < Ve had a few minutes consulta
tion with ourselves and with the Prcsi
dent and then two of our men quietly
left the hall
It had always been customary open
the meetings of the society with some
brief kind of derotional exercises a
mere form sufficient to keep up the an
cient habit The President called on one
of own fellows to official He walked
to the big Bible opened it at the 110th
Psalm and began to read lie read on
amdon anion thirty minutes passed
InS iows on the other side were in
amazement n Slashed the P salm then
jhe began a prayer Trs was a good fel
low and a candidate for the ministry
And such diffused and capable praying I
never heard By this time the opposi
tion were beginning to see through the
ruse He was praying against time while
the missing manwai being hunted up
and brought in to vote But there was
Jnpthing to bo done there was no pro
vision in the constitution for calling a
in to order on devotional exercises So
it to admit the missing man guarded by
tho fellows who had gone to find him
Ve got our man in as President and by
my watch that fellow we call him Dea

Stanleys Namo a Talisman In Africa
I Herbert Ward who was with Stanley
a part of the time during the explorers
last trip in Africa describes in the Led
ger a journey on tho Upper Congo We
make this extract
j In the night about 10 p ir we got
into a narrow channel all was silent and
dark when several hippopotami rushed
for the jalcr from the narrow reedy
banksT where they had been dozing
TSome almost rushed upon us in their ef
forts to gain the river whilst the water
eurged and rolled about until I feared
one of the monsters would take it into
his head to charge us Such an event
would have been Jie end of our canoe
journey About midnight as we passed
some villages on the north bank the
alarm drums heat and a very gruff voice
challenged us
j We are friendii children of Stanley
going to Bangali we aro peaceable

children 3Stanl8ys native name Bula
Matadi xhe StoVebreaker acts as a
talisman throughout tho Congo country
By millions of these savages his name is
tittered with respect almost akin to fear
It was evident tnat the natives did not
believe our declaration for the gruff
voice replied

most interesting sights of the Treasury
Department is the paying out of these
moneys which always occurs at the last
of the month
From all parts of the building the men

new bills which rustle like a fourdollar

I asked one of them yesterday if she did
not covec the money she counted She
replied she did and that her feelings

Spread of the English lanjnase
At the opening of the present century
there were in round figures 25500000
people who spoke the English language
They were chiefly in England We
were only a few millions in America
The Frenchspeaking people at that time
numbered about 31500000 and the
Germans exceeded 30000000 The

Learning to Talk at Thirtysix
The students at the Collego of Physi
cians and Surgeons are talking about a
wonderful bit of surgery recently per
formed by the magic knife of Dr 3fc
Burney in the amphitheatre
Hospital He had perfectly restored
speech to a man of thirtysix
dumb by an accident and if the present
promises in tho case are carried out it
may be the means of bringing back his
organs to a normal state
The patient is a well known doctor of
Rochester N Y In August last he was
thrown from a buggy landing on his
head He was made unconscious by tho
blow and when the doctors brought
him to it was found that his right arm
and leg were paralyzed and though he
could understand what was said to him
he had lost the power of articulation
Under medical treatment there was a
partial restoration of the use of his arm
and leg but he was still dumb He was
finally brought to Roosevelt Hospital
and Starr

French German Spanish and Russian
were therefore very nearly equal in the
number of their users and were all far
beyond the English in that regard
Even the Italian had threefourths as
large a constituency as the English and
the Portuguese had threeeighths as many
users Of the 161800000 people who
arc estimated to have been using these
seven languages in the year 1801 the
English speakers were less than 13 per
cent while the Spanish were 16 tho
Germans 184 the Russians 189 and
the French 196 This aggregate popula
tion has grown to nearly or quite 400

people number close upon 125000000
From 13 per cent we have advanced to
31 per cent The French speech is now
used by 50000000 people the German
by about 70000000 the Spanish by
somewhat more than 40000000 the

Yalne of Earth Worms
The weight of earth worms bring to
the surface yearly in enormous Darwin
estimated that worms by swallowing
earth for tho sake of the vegetable mat
ter it contains and forming castings
bring to the surface as much as ten tons
of earth per annum on an acre Worms
ore great promoters of Tegetation by
boring perforating and loosening the
Boil and rendering it pervious to rains
and the fibers of plants by drawing
straws and stalks of leaves and twigs
into it and most of all by throwing up
such infinite numbers of lumps of earth
called worm cast which form a fine
manure for grain an 1 grass The earth
twithout worms wou > d soon become cold
hard bound void nf fermentation and
consequently sterile this has occurred in
many cases where tl e worms have been
either accidentally or intentionally de
stroyed and the fertflity of the soil thus
lost has only been restored wnen the
worms had again collected ind resumed
their fertilizing work

hun as thoirs in a larger circle Look out
how jou tarnish it
rerhapi it is a good thing that cruel treat
ment bj a child abbieviates a parents life
for w halts there desirable in a fathers life
or o mothers life if its peace is gone Do
you not think death is something beneficent
if it stops the mothers heart from aching
and her eyes from i eepiu and says You
need not bear the excruciation any longer
Uo and sleep I will put the defense of a
marble slab between you and that boys out

from troubling and the weary aro at rest
At the departure of such mothers let the mu
sic bo an anthem instead of a dirge While
you and I hear no sound yet thero are at
this moment tens of thousands of parental
hearts breaking All care was taken with
the boys schooling all good counsels given
and tho equipment for a sober and earnest
and useful life was provided but it has all
gone and the foolish son has become the
heaviness of his mother
Much of tho poignancy of the parental
Ignef arises from the ingratitude of such
S behavior What an undertaking it is to
leonduct a family through tho ailments and
life Talk about the skill
exposures of early
demanded of a sea captain commanding a
ship across tho ocean That requires less
skill than to navigate a young soul in safety
across tho infantile and boyhood years

one sacred apartment It was on f
second floor and furnished at a cost
50000 Thero were carpets and furni
ture of the most expensive kind a crys
tal chandelier marble statues and fine
paintings It was fitted np for tho use of
General Grant then in the first year of
his term as President of the United
States It will bo recalled that General
Grant sent A T Stewarts name to the
Senate for Secretary of the Treasury It
was then discovered that the Constitu
tion would not permit an adopted citizen
0 take this place But Mr Stewart ap
preciating the Presidents desire to honor
him became from that moment a warmer
friend than ever of General Grant This
room in his palatial mansion Vas fur
nished expressly for the use of tho Presi
dent A latchkey to the mansion and a
Key to the room were sent to him with
the directions that whenever ho wanted
to come to New York and have a resting
spell this room would be at his disposal
General Grant in the eight years that he
was President occupied it many times
Finding Water With a DitlnlngItod
The diviningrod as a means of finding
a good supply of water stood a successful
trial recently at Oundle England AV
Todd a landowner requiring a well on
a portion of his property sent for a
diviner named Pearson There had
been considerable difficulty in obtaining
a supply of water in tho town and tho
Oundle Commissioners had spent SlOfJ in
trial borings conducted by a professional
man which proved futile In tho pres
sence 01 a number of spectators Pear
son with the usual Vshaped hazel twig
walked over the estate In several places
the tnig was visibly agitated but tho
diviner kept on until tho twig almost
bent itself double in his hands At this
spot a well was sunk with the result that
at seventeen feet water was found in such
abundance that it rapidly rose to within
three feet of the surface at which height
it has since remained During the mak
ing of the well the water percolated into
it so rapidly that at frequent intervals
operations had to be suspended to pump
out the water
Skin of a Uig Kattlesnake
The skin shed by a rattltanako which
was found on the bank of the Illinois
Itiver and is now preserved at a boys
seminary at Tahlcquah in tho Indian
Territory measures thirteen feet long is
fourteen and seveneighths inches in cir
cumference and has fifteen buttons Tho
person who has examined measured and
reports upon it says that it is a very dry
skin and therefore assumes that it pro
bably shrunk considerably in drying but
this is not so as the skin of a snake is
thoroughly dry when shed and conse
quently represents the full size of tho
snake Atanyratethisoneis big enough
without claiming any such allowance and
represents a poisoning power which it
would take at least a barrel of old bourbon
to counteract Seattle Wath Fosl
