Sanitary Conditions of Paris.
Not for many years have the health
returns in Paris shown such a low
percentage of deaths as has been the
ease since the recent floods. This ia
attributed to the thorough cleaning
process which took place after the
subsidence of tho waters when the I
accumulated rubbish of years in eel- I
lars and other obscure places waa
either washed out or has since been
removed by the health authorities,
who now praetice a rigid inspection

and have instituted fre3h methods of
insuring the purest possible supply of
water. Thus the floods may be con?
sidered as a blessing in disguise.-?

passion of I formed every
tenth year by the Inhabitants of the
Tillage of Oberamergnu, Bavaria, In
accordance with a vow made by them
In 1C33 to express their gratitude at
the cessation of the plague. This
Yow has been religiously kept, with
few interruptions, ever since. The
play depicts the events recorded in
the Gospels, and ls interspersed with
tableaux from the Old Testament and
choral odes, it occupies about seven
hours and a half In Its representation,
enlists the services of SOO persona
and is performed in an open-air the?
atre accommodating 1,000. The Pas?
sion Play is probably the only "mira?
cle play" or "mystery" in existence,
and attracts great numbers of tour?
ists, as well as peasants, from all
parts of the Tyrol and Bavaria. The
last performance took place in 1900.

The origin of the word "bull," as

ls doubtful. Some philologists say lt

attempted, but the best probably ls
that of Sydney Smith. Writing of the
difference between wit and "bulls,"
he says, "Wit discovers real relations
that are apparent, 'bulls' admit ap?

The stronger the apparent connection
and the more complete the real dis?
connection of tha Ideas the greater

The Sea's Ventilation.
One of the reasons formerly urged
IBjaiast the existence of living crea?
tures in the abysses of the ocean was
;he supposed absence of oxygen there.
It was deemed Impossible that any
:onsiderable quantity . of oxygen
:ould exist at great depths. But dis?
coveries of recent date have shown
mat there ls no lack of oxygen even
it Uss greatest depths. The explana?
tion ls that, the cold water of the
polar regions, charged with the oxy?
gen from the atmosphere, creeps
ilong the bottom toward the equator
from both poles and thus carries a
?upply of oxygen over the whole vast
loor of the oceans. The surface wa?
ler moves toward the poles, and so
i great system of circulation exists.
Were it not for thl3 world circulation,
MIS authority aasureS us, lt ia alto?
gether probable that the ocean would
in time become too foul to sustain
inimsl life, at least In Its higher
manifestations, and the sea, the
mother of life, would itself be dead.

How Danish Farmers Prosper.
The Danish farmers. liviBg as they
do on or near the seacoast, are great
exporters of dairy stuff. England is
so big a customer that the Danes in
fun reproach their neighbors with
eating up their butter, and leaving
them only oi- irin. "Yet." says
Mr. F. M. Purlin in "Among the
Danes." "they are not all of that way
of thinking, for one old farmer asked
us if We could not persuade our fel?
low countrymen to eat butter with
"If you ask how the Danish farm?
ers manage to keep pace with our j
(the British! increasing appetite for
Danish eggs, butter and bacon, the j ,
answer is, they co-operate. The but?
ter which is exported is made in
their CO-Operatlve dairies. The pigs
are slain in tie lr co-operative slaugh?
ter-houses, and the Danes are not a
little proud of the process. Ons dis*
tlnguisl complains that
during his stay in Denmark he was
always being asked to come and see
a pig killed.
"The eggs are exported by co?
operative societies. If a Dane has
only one egg he can export it?al?
ways provided it be a good egg. No
mistake must be made about that.
Before the eggs are packed for ex?
port, down in tbe co-operative fac?
tory on the shore, they are held over
-in filled with electric light, when
all defects can be detected with the
Baked eye. It is no use for an old
egg to pose as a young one then. Each
egg is marked with the owner's num?
ber and the number of h's district;
the owners of bnd eggs are fined. No
less than eighteen thousand Danes
belong to this nne society. Here, too,
butter is packed for the English mar?
