A STORY WITH A' MORAL CONCF.ALED ON THE PREMISES. [Longman's Magazine.] EPISODE I. —HE LOVES HER. The towu of Noesis was not built upon a hill; neither was its light hidden under a bushel. It stood in a calm and peaceful vale, into which the sorrows of a great and wicked world seldom penetrated. There was a river in the centre of this vale and hills on either side. One might have expected to find much beauty in the town of Noesis ana surroundings, but one would have been sadly mistaken. Beauty was not permitted to exist there. The town was built not only upon a rock, but also on strictly utilitarian principles. The river ran between artificial banks, con structed wholly with a view to so controll ing its waters as to make them useful in running the saw-mills and woolen-factories. There we<°e trees in Noesis, but they were there simply for the purpose of providing the town with lungs. They stood in straight rows up and down the streets, each tree whitewashed to a height of six feet from the ground, and each precisely the same shape and size as its fellows. There were three kinds of houses in Noesis —the large house, the small house, and the medium house. All were precisely similar in style, and were proportioned with geo metricul exactness. In fact, the influence of geometry was abroad in the town. Trigonometry found a warm spot in the soul of every Noesian, and quaternions and determinants were to them things of beau ty and j cys forever. For Noesis was the homo of reason, the domain of pure science, the kingdom of utilitarianism. Nothing ornamental was permitted to ex ist in the town; only the useful found an abiding-place there. The sinuous, willowy windings of the river had been a delusion and a snare. The dreams of architects who saw in their minds' eyes great mul lioned windows and cloud-capped towers had been rudely dispelled. There was no place in the town of Noesis for them. Sett nee and mathematics reigned supreme, aud whatever was, was right-angled. The day had gone by, said the Noesians, when the minds of men could be fed on such dainty unsubstantial food as Pope, Addison, Milton, Shakespeare, Byron, or Tennyson. Not even Homer in the origi nal tongue, or Virgil in his own stately hexameters, was considered'good for hu man brains. The Noesians revelled in the exercise of inductive processes, lead ing, as their chief professor expressed it, to those ' 'general conceptions of the uni verse which have been forced upon us all by physical science." Tho only musical instruments used in the town were the monochord and the steam-whistle. The flowers of the field were interesting accerd ing as they wero monocotyledonous or polycotyledonous. In this town dwelt Hypatia Ureen. A lovelier creature the air never breathed upon. Her hair was of that marvellous hue that turns to gold under the magic touch of the sun. Her eyes were a deep, dark brown, so rich and . expressive that only the inhabitants of Noesis could look into them unmoved. Her smooth, round cheeks wero tinted to a delicate pink with the warm, rich blood that flowed beneath them, and her two full lips always looked ready to pout, had they not been restrained by her strong will. Hypatia Green was a daughter of culture. She was professor of "Rational Torrefaction" in the Noesis High School. In plainer speech, she taught scientific cooking. She had brought cooking to a point of mathemati cal exactness. Every piece of beef that she roasted was done just as well as every other piece, and not a whit more or less. Her omlets were always of precisely the same size, color, and consistency. Her coffeo was never olouded with grounds, and was never too weak nor two strong. Her bread was never heavy, her cake was never damp. Nothing which Hypatia cooked ever failed to come out precisely as her re ceipt said it would. Is it to be wondered at that Hypatia had been much sought after by the eligible young men of Noesis? In such a town cooking must, of course, rank high as a science. The working ca pacity of a man, indeed his entire useful ness, depends upon the condition of his stomach, and for perfection in this he must look to his cook. That Hypatia was as beauti ful as a college boy's first dream of love never occurred to any one. Beauty had no part nor place in the town of Noesis. But men loved Hypatia for her cooking, a gift that could not wither an(i grow stale with the flight of years. Hypatia, however, remain ed fancy free. She was wrapped up in her omlets, and she cared not half so much about the heart of a man as she did about tho heart of an onion. Of course Noesis was on tho lino of a great railway. So rational a town could not have existed elsewhere. A dozen trains thundered by its rectangular station every day. Eight of them were express trains that did not stop, and ordinary No esians, who sometimes sauntered around wrapped in meditation like other people, would pause and gaze with scientific de light upon the swift movements of the lo comotives. Those who are familiar with the science of subtraction will infer that the other four trains did not stop at Noe sis. The last one arrived thera in the even ing, and on that particular evening in the month of May it brought Alfred Swin burne Cottle. As one might imagine from his name, this young man was a poet. He looked like oje. He was more than handsome, for there was in his face something of that ideal beauty which Hellenic sculptors wrought into tho faces of their gods. Cottle lived in Utopia, a town that was surrounded by an atmosphere of dreams and supernatural loveliness. There he had spent his youth in fashioning melodious verses and steeping his soul in the litera tures of Greece, Rome aud England; he knew nothing of science and cared nothing for it. It may, therefore, be inferred that he was unacquainted with the true charac ter of Noesis. If he had known the town he would undoubtedly, to put it mildly, have eschewed it. He went thither be cause he did not know the place, and he loved to go to places where he had never been before. As he descended from the train at the Noesis station ho gazed about him with something of mild surprise. "Well," ho thought, "this may be a jolly good place to spend a vacation, but it looks to me more like a good place to be buried in. However, I'm here, and I'm going to find out what there is in the town." "Want to go to the Huxley House, sir?" said a stage driver, stepping up to him. "Well, I want to go to a hotel. Is that the best?" "There isn't any other, sir." "Then you may take me to the Huxley House." Cottle followed the driver to his vehicle, and soon was gliding over a perfectly smooth pavement. "I saj', driver," said he, "how's the cooking at this hotel?" "First-class, sir. We have cooking down to a science here. Cook at Huxley House is a pupil of Jliss Hypatia." "Who the deuce is Miss Hypatia?" The driver turned and starod at Cottle as if he had come from some unknown world. "Miss Hypatia Green is professor of 'rational torrefaction' at the High School, sir." Cottle looked blankly at the man for a moment, and then, as the meaning of the sentence penetrated his brain, he burst into a roar of laughter, which provoked the driver into silence for the rest of the jour ney. Cottle wandered around the streets of Noesis the next day in a state of mild, de precatory wonder.. The prevalence of straight lines provoked him, and the whitewashed, stiff-backed trees aroused his ire. The very names of the streets filled him with discomfort; for were there not Humboldt, Thales, Galileo, Esculapius, Ganot, Herschel, and Kepler avenues, Co STAUNTON, VA., WEDNESDAY, JULY 29, 1885. pernicus Square, and smaller streets rejoic ing in s«ch names as lodide of Potassium lane and Ter-Chloride of Nitrogen alley? "I think," meditated Cottle, 'that one day in this town will satisfy me. This 18 not th; kind of place for a vacation. I shall leave this chemical laboratory to-mor row. I prefer to worship nature as a whole, not in a dissected shape." But fato had other things in store for this sweet singer. As he was retracing his steps toward the hotel a young woman iv the bloom of her beauty passed him. Cot tle had seen many lovely creatures, but never one like this. Her face was to him a perfect poem, a shrine of loveliness at which he immediately fell down and wor shipped. Cottle's dress and manner were different from those of the scientific inhab itants of Noesis, and he attracted the young lady's attention. She looked at him as she went by, and for a moment he bathed in the light of the two most glorious eyes he had ever seen: It was enough. From that moment the poet's soul wns in chains. He stood transfixed on the spot, gazing af ter her as she slowly walked down the street. A small boy passed him at that moment, Cottle seized the youth uy the shoulder with a convulsive grasp. "Who is she?" he demanded in a wMs per. "Who's who?" inquired the youth. "Yonder maiden with the fathomless eyes." The boy's glance followed the direction of Cottle's extended finger. "Thai's Miss Hypatia Green, professor of—" "Say no more!" exclaimed Cottlo, inter rupting him; "sho is an angel!" "Ah, go way!" exclaimed the boy, as lie started down the street; "are you a luna tic?" Cottle meditated a moment. Was he a lunatic? No; it was impossible. Ho must be sane. Such a face could only be the outward evidence of a truly lovely soul. She must have a warm, true, womanly heart. "Noesis !" exclaimed Cottle, '-you are the town for me. Yeu may be full of physics and mathematics and chemistry and astron omy, but where that face is there is poatry enough for one man's life, and here I stay." EriSODE II.—SHE DOES NOT LOVE HIM. "And do you never feel a longing for something deeper, sweeter, stronger than all this array of cold, scientific facts ?" "I do not see how anything could be deep er or stronger, and If by your peculiar use of the comparative term 'sweeter' you mean to indicate dearer, I most reply that to every well-regulated mind science is the dearest thing on earth." "I am afraid I do not understand .you." "And I am quite sure I dojnot understand you." That was the way Hypatia Green and Alfred Swinburne Cottle talked after a month's acquaintance. The young poet's vacation had stretched out from two weeks to seven. He had met Hypatia, had gazed into her wonderful eyes, and had beeu less able than ever to fathom their secrets. He loved her deeply, distractedly ; he would rot have been a poet if he had not done that. But when ho talked like a poet to her she did not appear to comprehend him at all. She took all his metaphors seriously, and was utterly unable to grasp an analogy. If he used an argument, however, tho could spring to its logical results long before he could. Sho was a puzzle to him and he was to her. Hypatia had never met a man like this before; sho did not understand all his talk about beauty and the value of art. — Onco he praised her face, and tbat really astonished her. "Why, Mr. Cottle, what do you mean?" "I mean that your face is beautiful. Don't yon know what beauty is?" "No, what is it?" "Perfection of appearance." ',But appearances are of so little con sequence." "Can you not understand the delight that one feels in gazing upon a field of waving grain ? "Yes ; of course one naturally feels de lighted to see the rich results of ratioual labor." Cottlo groaned. It was enough to make any man groan. Here was a woman with the face and form of a Greek goddess who could not bo made to understand that she was beautiful. From that time forth Cottle never again talked of beauty. He talked of love. He tried tc find the silent chord within her heart that passion might awaken; but all his efforts seemed useless. The con versation with which this chapter opens oc curred as they were on their way to a ved ding. He thought that the beautiful cere mony might touoh her heart; he was doom ed to disappointment and dismay. The town of Noesis had a wedding service of its own, and this was what Cottle heard : "Will you take this woman to be your lawful wedded wife, to have and to hold and to protect in sickness or in health, until death you shall part? Will you provide her with a properly-constructed home wherein the laws of rational sanitation are st rictly compliod with, and will you see that she is provided with food and clothing scientifi cally prepared ? And will you provide her with such books and periodicals as may be necessary fjr the proper pursuit of her studies ? And will you agree to provide for such children as y«u may have, nurses who shali take care of thorn while this woman is engaged in scientific experiments?" "I will." "Will you take this man to be your law ful wedded husband, to have and to hold and to obey, save when his commands are contrary to the laws of science ? And will you promise to aid and assist him in all scientific works, even until the end of your life?'' "I will." The word "love" was not mentioned in the coremony. Cottle began to fear that it was not known in Noesis. "Tell me," he said to Hypatia as they left the church, "do you know what love is?" ' 'Of course I do.'' Cottle's heart gave a great leap. Hypatia continued: "Love is the affection one hag for one's parents and brothers and sisters." Cottle's heart fell again with great force. "But did you never hear," said he, "of love for ono who was not a relative?" "Oh, yes," she answered, "for we are told in that part of the Bible which science permits us to believe that we must love our neighbors as ourselves, and I suppose we all do to a certain extent, —that is, I don't think much about it myself : but I have no objections to any one who does not interfere with my work." "Do I interfere with your work?" "Not in the least." "Then you have no objection to me ?" "No, I can't say that I have any objec tion to you." "Do you think you ever will have?" "No, I think not." "Do you think that you could always be happy in my presence ?" "Why, how strangely you talk I" "Hypatia, it is useless for me to conceal it longer—l love you. Will you be my wife?" "What for?" "Because I love you madly—desperately. I cannot live without you." "Is that what you call poetry 1" "No, no, it is tho solemn truth." "Oh, no, it is not. You can live very well without mo. Of course lam a good cook, but you can find others." "Oh, why will you not understand me 1" "I cannot, Mr. Cottle. I can comprehend why you should wish to marry me, but you do not seem to comprehend it yourself. I am the best cook in Noesis, and all the young men are striving to get me for life; but you do not seem to care anything about tbat, and insist on talking nonsense about my face. I cannot discover any reason why I should want you. If you were a great scientist you might have some claim; but all you can do is to write that jingling non sense which you can poetry. We don't marry men in Noesis for such causes as that." "Then you refuse ?" "Of course." Cottle walked in silence by her side until they had reached her dwelling. He could not comprehend her utter want of sentiment, nor could she find any solution for his poe try. At the door he turned to her once more and said: "Miss Green, is there no hope forme?" "I am afraid not," she answered, "as long as you cling to poetry." "Then farewell." He turned upon bis heel aud left her. The light had gone out of his life, and he bitter ly lamented the day he had first seen the town of Noesis. Stunned by the blow which had just fallen upon him, ho wandered, not knowing whither he went, far beyond the limits ofthe town. Out into the soft, green fields he went like one bereft of sense.' Tho sweet scent of the clover-blossoms, and the twittering of the birds, and tho soft mur mur of the wind among the boughs of tho trees smoto upon his senses, uot with the joyous melody of old, but with a new ring of pain. The voices of nature failed to speak to him as they had done in days gone by. Yet the soothing influence of solitude and beauty could not altogether be lost up on him. "What," he meditated, "would the world be without sentiment and poetry? Could man live without them ?" Then he smiled as he thought of the vanity of his inquiry. Men lived without them in Noesis, and women too. And they appeared to be healthy and bappy. Could he bring himself to such a state of mind ? — Could he dissect the tender fancies of poe try with the cruel scalpel of fact? Could he analyze an idea as Hypatia had done when he quoted to her, "Roll on, thou deep and dark-blue ocean, roll." "What is the use," she asked, "of telling th 3 ocean to roll on ? Of course it will roll on. It always has rolled on. and will con tinue to do so until its waters are evaporat ed, by the heat of the sun. Ten thousand fieet3 sweep ever thee in vain. What non sense ! Of course they sweep over it in vain. They couldn't possibly do the ocean any harm, could they? Now, if your poet had stated the fact that each ship immersed in the 'dark-blue' ocean—which every scientist knows is green—lost a portion of its weight equal to the weight of liquid displaced, he would have said something sensible." . As these thoughts were coursing through Cottle's heated and bewildered brain, in the midst of the beautiful fields, he came upon the only thing needed to drive him to utter distraction—a class of girls from the Noesis High School engaged in the practical study of botany. "Monoctyledon! monoctyledonous!" That was what the girls were chanting in a nasal chorus. "Enough! enough!" shrieked Cottle, as he rushed away. His brain was in a mad whirl, and the blood was coursing through his veins like a torrent of fire. Across the country he rush ed like a maniac, neverpausing till he reach ed the door of his lodging-house. He sprang up the stairs three steps at a time and dash ed into his room. In the solitary moment of consciousness that remained there float ed through his mind the dim remembrance of a stanza written by a poet whom he loved and imitated: "We had grown as gojs, as Ihe gods above, filled from the heart to the lips witli love, Held fast in his hands, clothed warm with his wings, 0 love, my love, had you loved but me!'' And then the four walls of his room faded away, and in another moment Alfred Swin burne Cottle had fallen prone upon the floor. His good landlady, running up at the souud 01 the fall, found him there, laughing wild ly. Physicians were summoned in hot haste, and shook their heads ominously as they muttered, "Brain-fever." [ Concluded in next issue.'] August Hints for Farm and Garden. Cut oats before they are fully ripe; they will shell out less, and the straw will be more valuable for fodder. Buckwheat sown early this month, will usually escape the frost. Should it be in jured, it will yet be valuable for plowing under. The old New England method was to work corn three times. The first hoeing was called weeding; the second, half-hilling, and the third was to hill the corn; after this it was left for the ground to be over-run with late weeds. The better method is to run the cultivator as long as a horse can pass between the rows. The cultivator not only stirs the surface, but kills the weeds. A plow should not now be used, as it cuts the roots. Thin the root-crops. Sow strap-leaf tur nips in drills twenty-eight inches apart, us ing one hundred and fifty pounds to the acre of superphosphate, or bone flour, near the roots. Give meadows a top-dressing of old ma nure or fine compost. Harrow bare and mossy spots in pastures, and sow seed on them. Give a dressing of lime or plaster. Cut brush with a brush-hook; burn and save the ashes. This is a harvest month for weeds. MAr.KET-GAIIDEN. Keep asparagus clear of weeds, using the hoe until the tops prevent, then pull the large weeds that appear. Hoe cabbages and cauliflowers frequent ly. Liquid manure will cause rapid growth. Cultivate between the rows of carrots and other root-crops, until the leaves prevent. Celery may still be set aud make fair sized heads for winter use. Let that plant ed earlier bo well cultivated and clear of weeds. Keep sweet com clear of weeds, and the soil mellow, by the use of the cultivator.— As soon as the ears are gathered, remove the stalks and cure for fodder. Cut off all smutty ears and stalks, and burn them. Gather cucumbers for pickles daily. Al ways cut them leaving the stems attached. Two or three inches in length is long enough. Promote the growth of egg-plants by ap plications of liquid manure. FLOWER- GARDEN. Weeds are the plants requiring most at tention in the flower-garden. If the borders are not cared for, weeds will soon give them an air of neglect. If the garden can not be kept in order, it is too large. Box is still used for edging, and should be clipped this month. In very hot, dry weather, lawns should be mown less often. The frequency of mow ing should be determined by the rapidity of growth. Stakes should be given to dahlias, gladi oluses, tuberoses, and such others as need them, before the plants become too large. Prepare a bed of fiuo, light soil, in which seeds of perennials may bo sown as soon as they are ripe. Potted plants, used for decorating the lawn, the verandah, etc., will need frequent watering, and partial shade. CREEN-nOUSE. Window-boxes and hanging-baskets will require abundant watering, ar-d, if possible, they should be shaded during the hottest part of the day. Make all repairs in the green-house. Provide supplies for winter; pots, sand, potting-soil, peat and moss.— American Ag riculturist for August. ♦-♦ —s> You can't afford to iaugb, dear girls, Unless your teeth are white as peails— Unless your mouth is pink and sweet, i And your two lip 3 iv rosebuds meet; And you cannot supply this w nt.

Late for Dinner. A CONJUGAL DIALOGUE. At the Macy mansion the dinner hour is six o'clock, sharp. Mr. Macy, who has been absent since morning, comes home seven minutes late. Mrs. Macy (not giving him time to offer an excuse),—"Well, when you rang I thought certainly it was the dqctor." Mr. Macy (anxiously)—" The doctor? Are you expecting him? What is the mat teiV She—"l suppose it has never entered your mind that a woman, though blessed with a constitution of iron, might suffer from having her meals at all hours of the day and night. Neither would you call it being sick, I suppose, for her to sit and wait and worry, tormented by all kinds of conjectures and fears; expecting every mo ment to hear that her busbar, d has been crushed to deata by a cable car. or met with some other frightful accident." (Macy, who sees tbe storm coming, wise ly remains silent.) She—"Will you at least condescend to an swer the only question that I shall ask you?" He—"Assuredly, my dear. - ' She—"Will you be good enough to in form me if you ictend to coma home at this late hour every night?" He (deprecatingly)—"Surely, my dear, you are not going to scold because I am seven minutes late this once. I was detain ed by business; but do not ask what it was, for I promised not to tell." She—"l havo no doubt that you will be a whole week late ono of these days, and will end, perhaps, by being away from your family for years." He—''Pshaw, my dear! How absurd!" She—"Absurb, is it? Why, it was no later than last night that you were telling me about the sea-captain—-La Perouse, I believe his name was, —who left home one day, promising to return at the usual time, and has never been seen since by his un happy family." He—"But that happened ninety years ago." She—"So much the worse." He—"Besides, don't you remember I told you ho was shipwrecked?" She—"Oh, yes; it is easy enough to say tbat a man was lost at sea, especially when ho is not here to contradict you. But don't think, when you make up your mind to leave home forever, that you will be able to deceive me by some foolish story printed in the papers, declaring, for instance, that you have gone up in a balloon which has never come down again; oh, no, I shall not believe that story any moro than tho one you tell to-day." He—"l am sure I do not know to what story you refer, my dear." She—"Ob, iudeeil? A man comes home brimful of mystery, and when his wife questions him, when she ventures to ask him a question, he responds guardedly that it is a secret. Oh, I am not at all curious. I have not the slightest dcs re to know your wonderful secret. Far be it from me to try to find out what perhaps would be the last thing I should want to know." He—"Now, are you going to imagine all sorts of foolish things, because I happen to tell you that I have been occupied with an other man's business to-day?" She —"A nice business it must be that a man dare not tell his wife. You are the greatest talker in the universe away from home, but it is simply impossible to get a word out of you when you are alone with your wife." He—"But, I tell you, it is not my se cret." She—"l suppose not. A very good ex cuse, that." He (irritated) —"Good heavens! How ex asperating a woman can be." She—"A man never is—of course not." He— "Well, for the sake of peace and qui etness I'll tell you the whole story." She (with the air of a martyr)—" Never mind—l do not care to hear it —now." He—"Why, are you not willing to let me explain?" She —"What is the use? You would only invent something. You are very good at that sort of thing." He—"Will you allow me to speak?" She—"l cannot prevent it, can I? You needn't be so fierce." c (about to confess) —"I " She—"But I warn you I shall not believe one single word you say." He—"Then 1 may as well remain si lent." She (triumphantly)—" There—what did I tell you? I knew very well that you would not have anything to say if driven to the wall. Ah! I understand you." She—"Oh, certainly—swear; that's just like a man. It will give you more time to invent a plausible story, too." He (in a rage)—"Do you intend to let mo get a word in edgeways?" She—"Oh, go 0n,.g0 on—your humble servant is all attention." He—"Well, then, a friend of mine who is on the verge of bankruptcy came to me this morning and begged me to give him some assistance, and I have been running about all day to help him out, aud even at last of fered myself as his security." She—"ls that all?" He—"Yes, that is all." She (sighing)—" Well, I am thankful that I paid the baker yesterday; we shall at least have bread one moro month—and I shall begin this very night to let the children go barefoot, for that is what the future has in store for tho poor things, with their father squandering his fortune upon every scala wag he meets." He—"Scalawag, indeed! Be a little care ful what you call a man till you know who he is." She (scornfully)—"Oh! I can guess fast enough; it is that fool of a Farnsworth." He—"ln the first place, madam, Farns worth is not a fool, but a very intelligent man; and in the next place, it is not Farns worth at all." She (angrily)—" And for such a miserable creature as Farnsworth do I see myself and children reduced to beggary?" He (more angrily)—" And, I repeat, that it was not Farnsworth." She—"Well, then, it was some other good-for-nothing fellow, whose name you dare not tell." "He—"Do not call names, madam; you will soon regret it if you do." She—' 'It must have been a sharper or a swindler; a gambler, perhaps, or even a thief." He (out of all patience)—" Very well.— Sinco you force me to it, know that it is your brother whom you are abusing, aud that he has been speculating too deeply, and is heavily involved." She (repentant)—"Oh, Frank, won't you forgive me?" (They fell into each other's arms.) He—"And now, my love, since peace is restored, let us sit down to dinner." She—"Not quite yet." He—"And why not?" She—"Well, you see I sent the cook away this morning because she was saucy, and I have been wandering around the city all day, trying to find another—goiDg from pillar to post, from one employment office to another—and I only succeeded in getting one a little while ago, so that—" He—"So that, I suppose, I get no dinner at all?" She—"No—so dinner will be ready at seveu." — From the French, in Argo naut.

[Compiled for the Sfuctator.] Flower pigments.—Hansen, a German physicist, finds that the colors of fruits and flowers are furnished by a very small num ber of pigments, which ho classifies into three groups: first reds; second, yellows; and third, blues and violets. He omits chlorophyll green, becauso it is compara tively rare in flowers. Orange is produced by a thickening of a deposit of the funda mental yellow pigment, the coloring matter being tbe same in the rind of an orange and in a yellow buttercup. Roses and carnations show the characteristic red pigment iv which variations are produced by the pre sence of acids. Universal color-blindness. —Color- blindness, as usually understood, is a blind ness to red, to green, or to blue or violet; and about one male in every twenty-five ap pears to be unable to discriminate between the principal colors of the spectrum. In a stricter sense, all persons are color-blind, for, although Chevreul is said to have been able to distinguish 14,420 tones of color, it has been proven that tho human eye is total ly incapable of receiving all tho vibrations of color which must exist in the spectrum. Not only may tbe amputated parts of certain low organisms be re-grown but the pieces removed may themselves become complote animals. Gruber, in Germany, has succeeded in dividing and re-dividing infusoria until sixteen perfect individuals were produced from the original subject. A French investigator, Witz, believes he has discovered an antagonism between ozone and cholera, the proportion ofthe former in the atmosphere of Paris last year having been in inverse ratio to the mortality from the disease. The fermentation of malt liquors has beeu found to turn 25,000,000,000 gallons of car bonic acid yearly into the atmosphere of Great Britain. Earthquake Causes.—Earthquake phe nomena appear to result from a variety of causes, which are thus briefly summed up by Mr. Ralph S. Tarr: In volcanic regions earthquakes are a part of an eruption; in a limestone country the falling in of cavern walls may account for some; in regions where the mountains are of recent forma tion the sudden release of tension causes many; the pressure of pent-up gases on the surrounding rocks, which are finally burst, may produce a large number, more espe cially those which are followed by a long series of shocks; and finally, in any one of these regions either or all of the other causes —with the exception of volcanic in non volcanic regions—may enter into tho pro duction of earthquakes. The dome to contain tho 30-inch telescope of the new Bischoffsheim observatory at Nice of the largest revolving dome in the world, having an internal diametor of 724, feet and a weight of nearly 94 tons. Yet the great structure can be easily turned completely around by a small wheel in four minutes. It floats in a trough-rim contain ing a non-freezing solution of chloride of magnesium. Comparing modern gigantic animals with the fossil remains of the great creatures which lived in earlier geological ages, Mr. R. A. Proctor concludes that it may well be doubted whether at any time in the piist his tory of tbe earth the average size of the ten largest creatures by sea and land exceeded the average size of the ten largest species now existing. Biniodide of mercury, according to Mig uel, is the most powerful antiseptic known, a solution of one forty-thousandth strength rendering life impossible to any form of microbe or germ. lodide of silver is next in destructive power, and bichloride of mer cury requires a strength of one fourteen thousandth. Crookcs has found that the presence of one part of samarium affects the spectrum of 3,500,000 parts of calcium, so great is tho delicacy of spectrum analysis. Progress of medical science.—Physic appears to havo been praotised first by the Egyptian priests. Pythagoras endeavored to explain the philosophy of disease and the action of medicine about 529 B. C. Hip pocrates, the father of medicine, flourished about 422 B. C, and Galen, born 131 A. D., was the oracle of medical science. About 980, Avicenna, an Arab, wrote a system of medicine. The dogmatic age of medicine lasted until the Reformation, when it was attacked by Paracelsus and Vesalius early in the sixteenth century. An entirely new system of physiological and pathological speculation was furnished in 1628 by Dr. Harvey's discovery of the circulation of tho blood: aud since 1800 medical practice has beeu completely transformed by physiolog ical and chemical research. The past de cade has given us the beginning of a now epoch—that of the development of the germ theory of disease —iv which science is called upon to defend our bodies from the micro scopic parasites which prey upon them and produce our most dreaded ailments. A means of determining and automatical ly recording the exact amount of energy stored in electric accumulators, or storage batteries, has been discovered by Crova and Garbe, French electriciaus. They claim that they can also ascertain the quantity of electricity still held in roserve at any given moment. According to Ptolemy, the firsteclipse re corded—one ofthe moon—took place March 19th, 721 B. C, at 8:40 P. M., and was ac curately observed at Babylon. The Egypt ians claimed to havo accurately observed 373 eclipses of the sun and 832 of the moon in the period from Vulcan to Alexander, who died iv 323 B. C. The theory of eclipses is said to have been known in China bofore 120 B. C. Italian officers are being taught how to collect and preserve specimens of marine animals, and it is expected that the navy will thus be enabled to make scientific col lections of great value from various parts of the world. How to Train a Heifer.—A calf may be reared to make an excellent cow in the following way: When it is weaned, and the soonei this is done tlie better, and it.is taught to drink milk, it may bo fed upon skimmed milk warmed to the heat of the new milk and fed in sufficient quantity and no more. It is over-feeding which does most harm to calves. The first month three quarts of milk three times a day is enough, the sec ond month four quarts may be given at a meal, and the third month six quarts twice a day with a drink of water at noon. Af ter two mouths the calf should be taught to eat a little mixed bran and cornmeal, aud this may be gradually increased until it gets a pint a day with four months old. The milk may be continued up to five or six months if it is convenient, and it may be mixed with an equal part of warm water. A small quantity of meal should be given every day. .—-. Feeding Calves.—The easiest way to feed a young calf is to let it suck the cow and run with her all the time. But it is not best for the cow to do this. The next easiest and a better way is to let the calf suck the cow twice a day and keep them separate. This is not good for the calf, which learns the habit of sucking, and it is difficult 1.0 wean it from this afterward. It is not good for the cow either, for some times she will hold up her milk and get the garget and be ruined. The best way—and really the easiest, because it saves trouble with the cows and the calves from the be ginning to the end—is to take away the calf before it has sucked, milk the cow and feed the calf, and to have each calf kept by i'self. It costs a little more to provide the pens, but it is a great con venience in a dairy when it is fully car ried out. When some one told Emerson that the world was coming to an end the sage re plied: "I am glad of it. We can get along very well without it." 1 BATES OF ADVERTISING. — .> AnvERTiSKMENTS are inserted at the rate of 12J4 cent* per line, tor tbe first, and 6!i cents for each subsequent insertion.

The RionT Kind or a Hay Cock.— Pushing or throwing hay into a bunch or heap, is uot making a cock. A cock of hay is a miniature stack. We want to make it so that it will shed water. In making a stack, the first and most important rule is to "keep your middle full." And so it is in making a cock. The middle or centre of the cock must always bo the highest— not when you finish merely, but at all times from the start to the end. And in fact this is all there is to it. Dressing up the cock by trimming it up at the bottom, and raking down the sides with the fork is all very well, but unless the cock is well made from the start, one of our heavy showers will go right through it. In old times, before mowing-machines, and steel rakes, and unloading forks, when tho labor of making hay was far greater than at pres ent, aud when we wanted to save it after we had got it, tho old man told us young ones, to "always turn your fork." We were not allowed to take a forkful of hay and set it down o:i the cock, but wo must lift it up above the cock and turn it over, so that the fork, instead of being under the hay, should bo on top. In our own prac tice we do not always adhere to this plan when starting the cock, but in putting on the last two or three forkfuls, "turn yonr fork" should be the invariable rule. There is no special advantage in making exces sively large cocks. In this climate, a cock four to five feet in diameter at tho bottom, and about five feet h.gh, if well and com pactly made, will answer.— American Ag ricultural for Atifjust. Something about Sunstroke. — Pre vention: —Don't lose your sloep; sleep in a cool place; don't worry; don't get excited; don't drink too much alcohol; avoid work ing in the sun if you can; if indoors, work in a well-ventilated room; wear thin clothes; wear a light hat, not black; put a largo green leaf or wet cloth in it; drink water freely, and sweat freely; if fatigued or diz zy, knock off work, lie down in a cool place, and apply cold water and cold cloths to your head and neck. Cure:—Put the patient in the shade; loos en his clothes about his neck; send for the nearest doctor; give the paient cool drinks of water or black tea or black coffee, if he can swallow. If his skin is hot and dry, prop him up, sitting against a tre? or wall, pour cold water over the body and limbs and put en his head pounded ice wrapped in a cloth or towel. If you can't get ice, use a wet cloth, aud keep freshening it.— But if the patient is pale and faint and his pulse is feeble, lay him on his back, make him smell hartshorn for a few seconds, or give him a teaspooufnl of aromatic spirits of ammonia or tincture of ginger in two ta blespoonfuls of water. In this case use no cold water, but rub the hands and feet and warm them by hot applications until tha circulation is restored. . —•-* Plowing in Manure.—As a rule it is best to plow in manure, but not deep enough to bury it. It does the most good when it is mixed with the soil, as it is ab sorbent of moisture and helps to keep tha soil from drying. It is also then in tha best condition for decomposing and help ing to exert a favorable effect upon the soil to a far greater extent than if it were spread on the surface and dried by the wind and sun, and therefore inert iv every way. Besides, when it is well mixed with the soil by plowing and harrowing, it fur nishes food for the roots of plants in pre cisely the place where they can find it, while when it is on the surface it is out of their reach, as the roots as a rule do not) try to gt that way.
