It measures about tin incites by ten, and is printed on one side of a single sheet. It heats the imposing title of The Will of the People. This little sheet took such possession o!' me that 1 could not rest until 1 learned more about it. 1 made inqui ries in the proper quartet, and obtained a most interesting revelation of the whole wardness*' of one of those Russian revolu tionary papers which so perplex the police. The office of a Russian revolutionary journal is usually a little back room in a very big bouse. The room must be so insignificant that it is, as it were, lost in the house, and a policeman would hardly think of looking in o it in a genera) search. It bears on the door an humble business announcement to the effect that artificial flower making, or sovue such harmless handicraft, is carried on insith Th« room is scantily furnished, and the stall of the journal is just one small unwholesome looking ex-student who has been turned out of college for insubordination and who is now living by his wits on pawning and a small allowance from a revolutionary centre. The staff has long, uncombed, greasy hair, and face which is rarely washed with anything hut ils own teats. It «ears a long cloak or " rap rascal lii etl with what "'as once fur hut is now nteiely a bald surface of hide, and the only glimpse or hint you get of nether gar ments is in certain frayed ends of trousers peeping out front below. Within this wrap rascal is the all in all of a revolutionary jour nal—its soul and spirit and its material life. When tlie cloak moves, the start audlhetypc, the pen and paper, the ideas, the principles and the policy—all go with it. It, is a triumph of the art of packing. It is still rather inac curate to say that the staff' is a pure individu ality. It is a dual one. A woman shares the wretched room and the labors of the wretched enterprise. She, too, has been a student, and she is still young. She studied medicine, perhaps at Zurich or f.t l'aris, served as ••(Jueen's messenger between the home neu ters ami the leaders abroad, until the police made Russia too hoi to hold her in lier own name. To the other half of the stall' she is devoted heart and sou!, and through him to Ins hobby—the universal revolutiort. She is a voluntary outcast from a respectait e family, and she would as cheerful I v laydown her lii'e as any pétroleuse of Paris for Iter creed. The journal is not a daily journal, but what may he called an intermittent one. It comes out when it can. The first business is to col lect material. For'his purpose the reporting staff, after a scanty meal on tlie cold remains of last night's supper, wraps itself in its cloak I establishments, much against, their will. The I stall', needing refreshment, after ils labors, I will enter some wretched refreshment-house | in „ low quarter, and, after drinking bis glass j 0 f tea seasoned with lemon, and toying mean whilo with any regular journal that maybe , lying on the table, will slip a few copies into , „ corner, where they are likely to be found j by the next customer, and immediately steal | 0 ut with ai! despatch into the shelter of the i night. Midnight witnesses its return to the I office, whore it puts the broken " pi " into its place of concealment, and has dreams of rev j olutionary murders, arson and general mis ! rule on ils bard bed of type, ; | M. Delaunay has made a communication to ; j the Sur.iete de Iliotuyie respecting memory as j j studied under the various biological condi- ! | lions. The inferior races of mankind, such I as tiegros, tlie Uliinese, etc., have more i memory than those ol a higher type of civili- ! zation. Primitive races which were unac- I quainted with tlie art of writing had a won- , derful memory, and were for ages in the hab it of banding down from one generation to another hymns as voluminous as the iiilde. ITompfars and professors of declamation I i know that women have more memory than ! men. French women will learn a foreign language quicker Ilian their husbands. Void lis have more memory than adults. It. ' is well developed in cltildreii, attains iis maximum about the 14th or löiji year, and thou decreases. Feeble individuals of a and (sallies out to watch public events. It is irresistibly attracted by a sort of magnetic instinct to places where there may be some body to shoot at. It goes to the great square In front of the Winter Palace, or to the envi rons of the public offices, it has a pistol in its pocket as well as a pen. There is no knowing what may not turn up, and the stall' has generally a standing order to put a Czar or a Minister out of the way. With this double duty in view it is always sure of some result, if it cannot get near enough to kill, ft can still manage to obtain information of goings-on and comings-m which may be useful at some future moment of action. It mingles with the crowd of idlers. It works its wav gradually to the front, as near as tlie police and soldiers will allow, and finally, when tlie Czar or Minister drives by, with swift trotting horses and Cossacks betöre and behind, it darts such a look of bate at him as would do the work more effectually than knife or pistol, it looks could kill. When the reporter has brought in his account of how tilings are looking in the city it becomes the editor's turn. Tlie leader is generally composed un der tlie trees in asnow-covcred public garden. If is written on sheets of paper torn from a tiny pocket.book, and as eaclt sheet is finished it is rolled up in a ball, ready to be swallowed at a moment's notice. I believe there is no instai ce known In which the most vigilant detective lias ever caught a leader writer In flagrante deiiriu. At tlie first sign of a police man approaching the scene of literary labor down go tlie pills. The next, stage is the set ting up in type. The staff gathers up tlie pills into his bands and proceeds to the little back room. The little back room is locked and bolted, and a chest of drawers is pushed against the door. Tlie dual member lays a loaded revolver within easy reach, and the printing department is in full activity. The type is taken from under the mattress, and Ute leader is slowly and painfully composed, with many a start at the sound of a footstep, which threatens to turn It all into an imme diate "pi." IIow the paper goes to press is not quite definitely known. My informant on this point was wanting in technical knowl - edge, but 1 am led to conclude that a sheet of paper is spread on t he "form," and that tlie staff' sits on the sheet of paper to obtain each impression. When tlie whole edition is printed ofl', the type is, as a temporary meas ure, tilted upside down into the breeches pocket to form "pi." The distribution takes place at nightfall. Tlie first thing to provide for is the supply of tlie honorary tree list, namely, the Emperor and two or three of his chief ministers, inclu ding tlie head of the Police department. Copies are forwarded to these through the post, with a manuscript intimation on the margin of the paper that tlie recipients will be done for at the first convenient opportuni ty. Th« letters are posted and the regular distribution begins. A copy is left with every dead wall, where it may remain all night, witlt a chance of being read by the moujiks as they are going to their labor in the early dawn. This part of the undertaking involves considerable risk and danger. Every d*ad wall in St Petersburg is guarded jti3t now, not only by the police but by watchful house porters, who are ordered to stand outside their doors and keep awake all night. Still the house-porters cannot look two ways at once, and while they are looking one way the nim ble staff' may contrive to post up a copy l lie other. The ornamental part, of tlie work, the little bit. of it which is a subject of just pro fessional pride, is to leave a. copy or two on the walls of (tie very police department ilself. This accounts for about three-fourths of the impression. Tlie remainder is left (still on the generous free-list principle which masks the whole product of tlie enterprise) with tlie proprietors of tea shops and other popular stahlishments, much against their will Koine 4 'tirions Facts about Memory lymphatic temperment have more memory than tlie strong. Students who obtain the prize for memory and recitation chiefly be long to the former class. Parisian students have also less memory than those who come from the provinces. At the Ecole Normale and other schools the pupils who liave the be*: memory are not the most intelligent. The memory is more developed among tlie peasantry than citizens, ami among the clergy than among the laity. The memory remains intact in diseases ot the left side of the brain, ami is inuchall'ected in those of the right, from which it maybe inferred that the right side is more the seat of this faculty than the left. From a phvsio logical point - f view memory is diminished by overfeeding, by physical exercise, ami by education, in this sense, that the illiterate have potentially more memory than those who know how to read and write. We re member, moreover, better in the morning than in the evening, ami in the summer than in the winter, and better in warm than in cohl climates. Memory is therefore, to a cer tain extent, in inverse proportion to nutrition and, more than that, it is in inverse propor tion to evolution, since it is greatest its those individuals who ate the least advanced from an evolution point of view—inferior races, women, children, the feeble, etc. In short, according to M. Delaunay, there is an evolu tion of the memory, which is first sensorial, literal, ami then intelligent ; hut memory, properly speaking, diminishes inversely a.thr evolution .—Medical Press uml Circular. ■d it The Egyptians made glass and c*d< beautifully 3,00(1 yeais before Christ.
