A gigantic scheme is suggested In tbe Figaro, of Paris, for tbe utilixalion of .the rainfall of tbe Pyrenees. It is proposed to da id tbe valley s all along tbe cbain. bold up all tbe mountain torrent* iu a series of artificial lakes, regulate the overflow, run it through turbines and so generate electric power. It is calculated that no less than KMtKUM) horse power could be obtained from the Pyrenean range, and this power could be supplied at about one-sixth of the coat of that pro duced by steam. r ... 7 "i I /l/fr\thor I 2 FA KSl/IW 44 My mother vet troubled with consumption for many years.

The affections of a horse are not Inferior to big intellectual qualities; and. especially If made a pet be remembers him for years. But bis affection is different from that of a dog. which continues to love bis master, even though the latter abuses bim greatly. Roug'i, unkind treatment will quickly estrange the affection of a horse. Good horse sense discovers no particular reason why a horse should be devoted to a master who habitually maltreats bim. The Intellect and affections of a horse point out two things so Important to a trainer that be munt bear tbern in mind until they become fixed habits of thought: 1.?Never, under any circumstances, allow/ a horse to successfully opttose bis will to yours.

The receiver of 1 the telephone is placed on the head of the oi*rator, and the patient is placed 1 in the usual manner, in contact with 1 It piUlt*, I ill* griitTUi uiruiuui being a wet sponge or souu> pajier sat- 1 united with a malice solution, which Is 1 spread over the plate. The latter is connected with a telephone by wire, ' and the prohe. after it ban been introduced into the body, vibrates an soon ' as the foreign metallic substance comes 1 in contact with it. The prohe is also 4 connected with the telephone by a wire, and thus no much blunder is pog- 1 sible as sometimes happens when the ordinary battery is used. When a telephone is used in this way, the plate ' acts as one pole and the probe as the j other. Needles. bullets, grains of shot and pieces of steel and copper have 1 been easily located by use of this simple method. The only instances when the telephone does not work sat. isfactorily are when the objects to be , located are of the same metal as the , probe.
