TheDemocrat SATURDAY June 12 C Some Jut treating Jfaeta. A peculiar substance lms been found by Professor A. .Seaccln in the lava which issued from Vesu vius during the year 1081. lie supposes it to be a new metal, and gives it the name vtabium. In Prussia ono person in every four hundred and fifty is insane. IA Berlin scientist attributes this ; large proportion to intemperance among the lower class, and to edu 1 cational cramming in early years I nniong others. # ! Some two years since, according to a foreign mcdical report, a girl of seventeen received a severe fright, wliich, within a few days thereafter, resulted in a total loss of her hair. None has grown since, and she remains completely 'toild. . . , A small quantity of the essential oil of aloes was recently exhibited in lidinburg. It is believed to he the only specimen in the world. The oil exists only in vory minute quantity in aloes, but two fluid urachnis having been obtained from 500 pounds of aloes. A process has been patented in Germany whereby a fur-like mate rial is produced from feathers in combination with ot her textile sub stances: The product can bo used for a variety of purposes, such as rugs, carpets, and so mo articles of clothing. Feathers, otherwise ivaluless, can be utilized by this means. 1 Tho lints of natives of British I Columbia are adorned with figures (resembling tattoo marks. Dr. Dally has discovered that these marks all have a deGnite meaning, I being, in fact, records of events which have taken place in the lives of the wearers. Each individual thus displays his history npon his head. A remarkable discovery was lately made in the region of the 1'vrcnecs. In a cave of tho paleo lithic or "old stone" period there] were found teeth of the cave-bear, adorned with drawings, some of winch represent human beings covered with long hair. Theso rudo pictures must date thousands of years before the down ofliistoric times. . ? A horse recently captured in the wilds of tjirkestan was found to be exceedingly sensitive to cold, hav ing no ordinary coat. This unique specimen ol the equine breed now figures ttt tlio Zoological gardens at St. Petersburg, where it is eonifor- j tably habited ill an otter-shin jacket. . Tho pitcher plant ofBornoo has been found to.be n natural insect trap,' incurving ridges effectual ly preventing the escape of any creep ing insects which may outer. In order to safely reach the prisoners thus entrapped, a species of black ant ingeniously perforates the stalk of the plant and tunnels up ward to the pitcher, providing m this manner a highway, bv means of which ready success is had to a sumptuous fare of dead and decay ing insects. A Mtlttuijc of Jlii-lli. ? A dangerous man?one who takes life cheerfully. Among the recognized small vie: es are Vice-l'residenls. Nothing is wholly had. Even a I dark-lantern has its blight siile. Don't stroke a cats tail the wrong way; it's madness to de fur." Cats have no fixed political be lief. They are usually on the fence. A great many men who start out to reform tho world leavo them selves off for the last job. When we say that a painting is horribly executed, do we mean to say that it is badly hung? If a man who can raise a barTcl is nominated, it can only be on account of his purse-onal strength. Persons who jump at conclusions are sure to leave a theatre before tile curtain is half-way down. Tho rain falls on the just and the unjust. But not on the man who has just stolen an umbrella. A gentleman finding his whisky punch a little too hot, blew it to cool it. "Blowing your own horn, I soo," said his comrade. Two French Senators meet: "I havo just come from the Senate. The sitting lasted three hours." "What passed?" "Three hours." Clothes don't make tho man, but a good suit goes a long ways with the car-conductor when ho finds a man who left his wallet at home. The exasperated owner of a cor ner store in Augusta, Maine.put up a sign reading: "Wanted, tho ten laziest men in town?to loaf on this corner.'' Langituu* of the Hand* Tho hand has a groat share in expressing our thoughts and feel ings; raising tho hands towards Heaven, with tho palms united, ex presses devotion and supplication; wringing them, grief; throwing them toward lleavcn, admiration; dejeclcd hands, despair and amazo ment; folding them, idleness; holding the fingers intermingled, musing and thoughtfulness; hold ing them forth together,yielding! and submission; lifting them andj the eves to Heaven, appeal; wnv-: ing liie hand from us, prohibition; extending the right hand to any one, peace, piety and safety; scratching the head, euro and per plexing thought; laving the right hand on tho heart, affection and solemn nfiirniiilioii; holding up the thumb, approbation; placing the right forefinger on the lips perpen dicularly, bidding silonce. ?Tho beauty of n man parting his hair in the 'middle appears to he that it gives both cars tin equal chance to flap'. Jfords of Wisdom An honest man takes delight in doing good. Youth looks at the possible, age at the probable. lie who declares all mon knaves, convicts at least one. ^ ; ? The rarest gems often lie hidden in kennels of impurity. Words are daughters of the mind, but actions are the sons of the soul. Wit looses its respect with the good when seen in company with malice He only is independent who can maintain himself by his own exer tions. As a bird wandcreth from her nest, so is a man that wanderetb from his place. Return.equity and justice for evil done to you, and pay good ness bv goodness. Find earth where grows no weed, and you may find a heart wherein no error grows. ? Poetry is the art of substantia ting shadows and of lending exis tence to nothing. The faith which looks forward is far richer than the experience which looks backward. There are occasions when cero monies tnav not be easily dispens ed with, kindness never. Paradise is where parents are al ways vonng and thu children al ways little. Love, undying, solid love, whose root is virtue, can no inprc die than virtue itself. Many peoplc-are-busy-in -the world gathering together a handful of thorns to sit upon. IIow can wo look with confi dence to a heaven above, when we do so little to make a heaven be low, around and about us? t'OUl lJoTninion." This term, which is so expres sive and significant to every Vir ginian, is said to have had its ori gin us follows: During the protectorate of Crom well, the colony of Virginia Tefused to acknowledge his authority, and declared itself independent. Short ly after, when Cromwell threatened to send a fieot and army to reduce Virginia to subjection, the Virgin ians sent a messenger to Charles II., who was then an exile in Flan ders, inviting him to return on the ship with' the messenger and bo king of Virginia. Charles accep ted the invitation, and was on the ove of embarkation when he was called to the throne of England. As soon as ho was fairly seated on the throne, in gratitude for and recognition of the loyalty of Vir ginia, he caused her coat-of-arms to be quartered with those of Eng land, Scotland and Ireland, as an independent member of the empire ?a distant portion of the Old Do minion. Ilence arose the origin of the term. Copper coins of Virginia woro"isRUcd eveii as late as the reign of George II., which bore on one side the ooat-o forms of Eng land, Ireland, Scotland and Vir ginia. Valuable Silver Dollars. The silver dollars came into ci - dilation in 170V None woro coin ed from 1S04 to 1S3G. The 180-1 dollars aro the rarest. All the dollars issued between 1850 and I860 aro considered very valuable, arid those of 1851 and 1852 are worth ?50 apiece. Only six of 1S04 dollars were struck o(T. Mr. Adams paid $500 for one in his possession. The ISciG dollars dif fer from those of other years, being stamped with largo eagles sur rounded by stars. There is no silver half-dollars of the year 1S0-1 in circulation which does not bear a figure 5 stamped over the 4. There were three sets of what is known as the "Barber dollar," coined in 1871, and of these three Mr. Adams has one, for which he paid $100. This stylo of dollars differs consideiably from the other dollars issued that year, the god dess ou it being raised and facing the loft instaed of the right, as she does on the other?, and tho em blem on the reverse side is quite unlike anything on tho dollars now in circulation. This is one of tho rarest of American coins, and is highly prized by its owner. A llloothj Code. Poople wonder why tho- Chi nese who como to this country are so slow to renounce allegiance to their -mother government. When they read the following list of penalties to which China men are subjected for renouncing citizenship, their wonder will cease. They are us lierOe as the code of Draco: "All persona renouncing their country and allegiance or devising the means thereof, shall bo behead ed, and in the punishment of this offence no distinction shall be made between principals and ac cessories. The property of all such criminals shall be confiscated, and their wives and childron dis tributed as slaves to tho great olli cers of Btato. The parents, grand parents, brothers and grand chil dron of such criminals,' whethor habitually living under the same roof or not, shall bo perpetually banished to tho distance of 2,000 leagues. All those who conceal or purposely connive at this crime nhall be strangled. Thoso who in form aguinst criminals of this class shall bo rewarded with the whole of their property. If tho crime is contrived, but not executed, tho principals are to bo strangled and tho accessories punished with blows and banishment." A Wisconsin clergyman preach ed on the sin of transacting money matters on Sundav, and when the deacon passed tfie contribution plate not a person would put a cent in it.
