ACHIEVEMENT OF SCIENCE The process of the transfusion of blood from the veins of a healthy into those of a diseased person is certainly a remarkable achievement of medical science, more especially as it seems that the result is the improvement of the patient There have been reports of several such successful operations lately ,but the most marvelous one of all is that in which the blood of a lamb was sub- stituted for that of a human being. It was performed by a learned pro- fessor at Naples without the inter . vpntion of anv mechanical force. His patient was a lady thirty years of age, dying from anaemia, caused, by frequent hemorrhage.

Out of the mountain issues a constant stream Qf smoke, while on its summit and generai surface the vegetation has withered and died, until the whole bill presents a barren, sterile and of Me- desolate aspect, blasted as if by whirlwind of Are. The ground on the hill is so uncomfortably hot that it is almost impossible for barefooted person to walk there. It is believed by persons who have visited and inspected this lusus na turae, that the entire interior of the hill is a mass of ignited combustible matter, and that the fire is and has been spreading, To account for this strange phenomena is that on about the first dav of October the Ap- party to whom the land belongs was burning brush on the hillside, and Cin- the flames communicated to in flam niabie matter.probably crude oil,coal or other combustible substances, Or- contained in the geological forma tion of the hill, and that the hill be ing full of such matter.the Arc grad- J.

[From the Pittsburg Commercial.] DEFINING DRUNKARDS. The Supreme Court of Ohio cently made a decision which pos- sesses considerable interest for the public generally, the point at issue being to what extent habits of in- temperance make policies of life in- surance void. The person insured died about eight months after the policy was taken out, and it was proved that at the time of effecting it, and therealter until ne uiea, ne was addicted to habitual intemper- ance, from the effects of which his death lolioweo. The Court divided the drinking classes into three groups those who drink sometimes and upon oc- casions as it were more by accident than otherwise, but in so exception- al a manner that no one can say they have any habit in regard to sucn use, tnose wno acquire a cuu- stant appetite for intoxicating liqu- ors and a regular habit of using tbem,80 that the system is kept un- J..
