The question is often asked, and seldom re ceives so satisfactory an answer as has been given by a contemporary. The common fly lays more than a hundred eggs, and the time from egg laying to maturity is alwut two weeks. Most of ns have studied geometrical progression. Here we see it illustrated. Suppose one fly commences "to multiply anil re plenish the earth" abont June 1. June 15, if they all lived, would give 150.

During the war he mysteriously disappeared, bnt came to the front a few years later as an Epis copal clergyman. He continued in the latter capacity until made the subject of two assaults by persons who believed him to lie J. Wilkes Booth. He then went to Cincin nati where he achieved through the newspapers an unenviable notoriety. For ten years nothing has been heard from mm by his old associates.

San Francisco Call Ecclesiastical Wheat Fields. Some months ago Presiding Elder F. A Burdick called a meeting of all the Methodist pastors of the Aberdeen dis trict in South Dakota, and put before tbem the plan of sowing acres of wheat for the liquidation of the church debts. The pastors took to the idea, and after talk with their people found the farmers would furnish the land and do the work if the church would furnish the seed. The general societies of the church, which have their headquarters iu the east, then took hold of the matter, and shortly announced that the money for the seed shonld be forthcoming. The Rev. Mr. Burdick said: "We hope to have at least forty acres of wheat on every charge in the Aberdeen district, md on some as many as sixty. As a matter of fact the church at Bath lias already started the ball rolling with ?i xty acres. The income from this source will be applied altogether toward the payment of church debts, and 1 confi dently expect to see several cleared away before another winter." Cor.

"They accordingly went in a body to the imperial palace and humbly tendered their joint and several resignations. It was now the turn of the czar to be over whelmed with amazement, and it was only after a good deal of embarrassment and reciprocal explanations that the matter was set right.

The man earing tiger is a creature both cunn'ng and audacious. One de scribe 1 by sir Samuel Baker, which be came the victim of a practical joke, was nut the typic al old and mangy animal, but a ;o'.vt rf ul beast of almost unexam pled ferociy. It was a merciless high wayman, which infested a portion of the road, ami frequently carried off the driv ers of bullock carts to feast npon them in the juntde. The natives feared to travel with a sin gle cart. a'id it became the custom to pass the dr-Mib-d spot with several teams t gether. This, however, proved a vain precaution, for the tiger seized thedriver of the hirdmost cart and made away with him in spite of the cries of those left behind. At lengt i Mr. Duff, the superintend ent of P"ii e, I rovided two covered carts, each drawn as Usual by two bullocks. The leading one was fitted with strong Lars of b:.mboo. which fonne.1 an im penetrable cage. Iu this the driver was seated, and Mr. Duff himself sat with his face tow ard the rear, prepar.il to fire through toe bars at the moment of at tack. This vi-"rM have been an exciting time for the driver, but that individual was personated by a dummy stuffed with straw, wh t h might prove tempting to the tiger's eye but would hardly satisfy his palate. Slowly the carts moved along the dreaded path. Suddenly there was a roar and r.ish in the jungle. A large tiger iMjiimied forth, seized the dummy driver and dragged him away. Nothing could have beeu U tter planned, but one chance, necessary to success, had been forgotten. No sooner had the tiger roared ami bounded upon the cart than the bullocks, terrified beyond control, went full gallop across the country, fol lowed by the other team, all in the wild est panic. It was imjiossible to fire, and after a few seconds of desperate chariot racim? both carts capsized, and lay, with the aiiimals, in a heap on the ground.

Mm" thrilling tales told bv ptisorvra of war about their priviMoes and advont ar while nDder t.9 espinrnge cf an alert and relentless enemy. An experi ence worthy of record was told an Amer ican reporter, the other night, by a man who now stands high in public; lifd in Tennessee. He was once a confederate soldier. IIr had the misfortune to be nutniiered with the captured at Fort Dotitlson. and with hundreds of his comrades was hurried across the Ohio and incarcerated in Camp Bwtler, a spot which will long be remem bered by those who were so unlucky as to be imprisoned within its battlements. After pming for several weary months for an exchange that was never effected these southern patriots set about to ac complish their own delivennce. Vari ous plans were concoctel. but were ail successfully thwartd by the vig-.!an- of their custodians. Finally the inspira tion of this story hit n;mn a scheme which for audacity and cleverness is nn pr.vedented. and won for its originator a ritle and distinction among his com panions which time has not yet obhter ated. .Among the prisoners at Camp Butler were a number of boys who served tiio Confederacy in the capacity of "powdt r monkeys." a function well known to heavy artiilensts. IT Was A CLVR pus. The duties of these youngsters were to convey powder chargi-a from the magazines to gunners in trenches or to assist in like manner on the floating bat teries which annoyed the federal gun boats in the Mississippi river. Two of these little fellows, who had fallen into the hands of the enemy, were treated with the dignity due prisoucrs of war, and consequently found themselves hundreds of miles away from hnn-.e and mamma and subject to all the heartless discipline of military prison. Theraanly fortitude of these two juvenile warriors attracted the martial sotd of Colonel Murrion, who commanded tiie poet To make their imprisonment less ardu ous he made them Lis ollice ordeil.es, and sent them on the bundr-ils of er rands which a commanding officer finds a daily necessity in the discharge of his duty. Tho little fellows were tni" patriots, and no persuasion or punishment could dissuade, them from the cause of their fathers. It waa through tiieiu that the hero of this story accotuplistied his de signs. Tbe boys had access at all times to the colonel's office, likewi.-e the adju tant's desk. One night they were bidden to steal from the adjutant's desk a lot of blank passriorta. But what good were passports to a soldier whose very uniform for'oade? exit from the inner 8tocicde of the prison, might be asked. Fjrtunately, however, m the prison there was a sutler who pr aessed all the venality characteristic of his cloth. Among the prisoners in Camp Butler there were several confederate soldiers who were the sons of wealthy parents and occasionally received money from home. From this element a general fund was collected and appropriated to the use of the plotters for deliverance. With the sutler, whose loyalty to the American dollar exceeded his fidelity to the Ameri can Union, it was an easy matter to smuggle in a suit of citizens clothes now and then. A FEW GO AT A TIXE. On visiting days hundmls of people from the country around would throng to the post to look at the fiery reiwls. They were shown, under the escort of a guard, through every part of the pr.son, and on sevenl occasions these parties, in some unaccountable way, would nraawr one or two more on coming out than they did on coming in. Each individual, however, displayed his passport to the guard at the gate, and retired unques tioned from the portals of the fort into the loyal prairies of Illinois. Had the guards counted their guests upon their arrival and departure seine startling surprises would have resulted. Ou one occasion two confederate officers escaped by the guard with forged pusses and hail taken seats in a carriage which waa waiting to serve visitors at the gate of the fort when Colonel Morrison him self came out and, addressing them, asked if they had seen ail they wanted to see. "Yes, sir," replied one of the fugitives suavely. "They are a hard looking set. ain't they, colonel At the same tim he was so alarmed that his tongue al most refused to articulate. By this process half a hundred Con federates were released from custody and returned to their commands in the field. The rentier must not imagine th.U tlseso men were not missed by their guardians, for after every muster the guanls were doubled and many commissioned and non-commissioned officers relieved, it be ing suspected that they were responsible for the mysterious disappearance of the prisoners. So cleverly did the plan operate under cautious restrictions that the leak through which the human contents i f that noto rious pen escaped was not discovered until the man who created it had been duly exchanged and was fighting under his own flag on the fields of Geo- a, where he was known to the army as Colo nel Morrison's adjutant Nashville Am erican.
