Every Man’s Value.
An interesting exhibit at the National
Museum sltu.vs the chemical ingrediuieuts
which go to make the average man,
weighing 154 pounds. Divided up into
his primary chemical elements the man
is found to contain ninety seven pounds
of oxygen, enough to lake up under ordi
nary atmospheric pressure the space of a
room ten feel long, ten feet wide and ten
feet high. 11 is body also holds fitteen
pounds of hydrogen, which under the
same conditions would occupy somewhat
more than two such rooms as that de
scribed. To these must be added three
pounds and thirteen ounces of nitrogen.
The carbon in the corpus of the individ
ual referred to is represented by a toot
cube of coal.
It ought to be a diamond of the same
size, because the stone is pure carbon, but
the National Museum has not Pitch n
one in its possession. A row of bottles
contain the other elements going to make
up the man. These are four ounces of
chlorine, three and a quarter ounces of
tlorine, eight ounces of phospliorius, three
and a half ounces of brimstone, two and
a half ounces of sodium, two and a half
ounces of potassium, one tenth of an ounce
of iron, two ounces of magnesium and
three pounds and thirteen ounces of cal
cium. Calcium at present market rates,

A camel by itself is one of the most
interesting animals that has ever been
created, but when it bl**cks tlie way of a
d *g cart and a smart E iglish groom en
deavors to drive around it, the incongrui
ty of the situation appeals to you as no h
ing on Broadway can ever do. Mr.
Laurence Hutton, who was in Cairo be
fore l reached it, has p linte 1 o it th it the
camel is the real aristocrat of Egypt.—
Tile camel belongs to one of the very first
families; he was there when Mena ruled,
and he is there now. It does not matter
to him whether it is a Pharaoh or a
Mameluke or a Napoleon or a Mixed 1'ri
biiiial that is in power, bis gods are un
changed, and he and the palm tree have
preserved their ancient individuality
through centuries. He shows that he
knows this in the proud way in which he
holds his head, and in his disdainful
manner of waving and unwinding his
neck, and in the rudeness with which he
impedes traffij ami selfishly considers his

following treatment pro nises well: Add
a teaspoonful of piwdered camphor to a
pitcher of b liling water. Over this place
si c >ne ina le of thick paper or pasteboard,
and hold the nose and mouth over the
small opening. The vap*r arising from
t‘»e water is charged with camphor and
will speedily relieve many of the disturb
ing symptoms. It should be inhaled for
fmr or live minutes at a sitting, and
three such treatments are usually suHi
cient to arrest the most rebellious “cold
in th* head.” But many of the victims
of this trouble must be out an I ah *ut.—
A snuff is more convenient f>r them. A
very good one can be made as follows:
Menthol, three grains ; piwdered horaic
ncid, one drachm ; subnitrate of bismuth
and p ordered benzioti, each one and one

be snuffed up five or six times a day.

She is respectful and obedient, and has a

and ambitious. And how do you think
she spends her leisure time? Studying

A Paoblt m that in a Problem.
A group of gentlemen were gathered
about the desk engaged in earnest endeav- j
j nrs to figure out u mathematical problem
j brought over by a prominent young
member of the New York bar, who stands
to lone 8100 on a wager if his own solu
tion is wrong. Here it is:
A column of troops 2-3 miles long is
ordered to a point 2-3 miles distant. A
courier starts simultaneously with the
rear of the column and reaches the head
thereof, iieiuriiig, lie meets the rear col
umn and reaches the point where the
head originally was. Bull the iroojw
and the courier are to travel at a uniform
rate of speed. IIow many miles <l«*es the
courier traverse ?
It looks simple. The young New York
er said it was simple, and that it didn t
lake a mathematical sharp to figure that
the courier j *uriieyed even 50 miles.—
The man who made the bet with him was
a Philadelphian, and lie called in Pro
I fessor Thunder, a teacher of mathematics,
said to be the greatest expert in the Qua
ker City. The Professor figured at it
awhile and suid it was plain that the
✓ MIlloJ llllf III*!
Iiow much more lie wouldu’t undertake
to say ofF hand.
The man from G »tham was not satis
tied with the Pnilulelphia professor's ©in
clusion, so reaching Washington he
hunted up Professor G-*orge Hill, the
clerk of the House irrigating committee
and an expert in mathematics, who in
turn* referred him to Professor Wood
ward of the coast and geodetic survey.—
His answer was sent in and appeared at

the New Yorker is not satisfied. Before
giving up the 8103 he is going to have
the opinion of the pr ifess or of in ithemat

take no less authority than that to shake

On the shores of Brittany there is mye*
tetanus relic of forgotten ages which es
capes the atteutiou of most travelers says
the Million.
Far i ut in the Morbihan sea—across
which legend tells us Arthur sailed with
his knights in puisuit of the dragon—
rises a little island. It can be reached in
u h<mt from the coast only in a calm sea.
A Breton sin pherd has a solitary hut up
on it and feed* a few slfeep.
Crossing the grassy slope off which
they brnuse the traveler finds himself at
the font of a hill, in the face of which has
been excavated a groat tunnel or cave,
floored, wullcd and roofed by huge flat
Some archie dogists say that this cav
ern was the dwelling of the worshipers
of the serpent god lloa—a race that lias
passed into oblivion.
I lie unlearned traveler knows only
that the mysterious cavern antedates all
hi-tory; that the rocks of which it is
built came from the mainland, a distance
of more than one hundred miles inland.
Even with our nvwlern engineering
knowledge mid machinery it would re
quire vast labor and skill to bring these
enormous blocks of stone mid place them
so securely as to defy the wear and fric
tion of ages.
How were they brought here by men
who bad. perhaps, few mechanical appli
ances—nothing but the strength of their
Imdiesntid their strength in a strange god?
The race who built the temple are dust.
Even their unmes ages ago perished from
earth. Their religion is vanished. These
stones are the monuments of their indom
itable resolution. That defies the flight
of years.

It was Hook who perpetrated tbej-St that
form* the turning point in Gilbert Gurnev's
career. O te <1 iy lie and the elder Mathews,
ihe comedian, took a row up the river to
Richmond Passing a well trimmed lawn
at Italics they noticed an inscription board
-ternlv forbidding nnv strangers to land —
Hits was enough for Hook. Tying the
b nil to n tree be and Mathews landrd, tak
ing with them fi-liing rods and line*.—
Hook acted as land surveyor, Mathews as
liis clerk. Pacing slowly to and Iro across
the lawn they u»rd their fi-liing-rod* as
pretended measuring and leveling staffs,
t'wir lines a* yard and rood measures.—
rJ.Min a parlor window opened. Tbs occu
pant of tlie villa, n well-ln do ahlermnn,
strode oill in great wrath and demanded to
know what the two interlopers were about.
Hook coolly but courteously informed him
thill a new canal was to be cut directly
across the lawn, and that be and bis clerk
were taking accurate measurements. Part
ly hi rage, piriiy in ue-piitr, me aiuerman
invited them in to talk tlie matter over —
Dinner wa* ju*t ready. Tlie wine flowed
Iredy. Tne alderman sought to per-uade
the purveyor that another line for the canal
might easily be obtained. Hook aaid he
wnU'd do bin beat. Good humor was re
stored, the conversation grew general, the
novelist and the comedian succeeded in
charming the household. At laal Hook sat
down to the piano, and finally, after numer
ous brilliant impromptus, rallied of the fol
lowing :
