Journal, the orange specks of the gasliglts along the Thanllles Embalnllkmenlt were, seen to shine dimly thronghl a recent fog while the brilliant white glare of the electric lamps was indistingluishable. -It has recently been discovered that a iinuteo funguis will cause, fermentation in a solution of glucose while it does not affect that of cane sugar. Advantage has been taken of this fact to separate cane sugar from molasses, the glucose undergoing fermentation, and thus allow ing the cane sugar to cryalallize out. -Tlhe ph.unomenon of phosphorescent fr:esh nIeat has bIoon observed in France. Ho;me cutlets of raw pork shone so bright ly in the dark that it was possible by the aid of the light thus furnished to tell the time by the watch. The meat did not otherwise diller in appearance or odor fronl common mront. The phospho rescenco disa:ppeared on the sixth or seventh day. Entire freshrness seemed to be a condition of the luminosity, so that when the meat began to smell its brightness ceased. -If elastic gnum is warmed, then ox panded' and wound in a spiral upon a glass trbho or wire and cooled for a short time in a cooling mixture, it shows no tendoncy to contract, but when it is sul, mitteli to ho)t water it returns quickly to its original length. Thi phenomenon can also be made to appear without the use of the cooling mixture. If one holds heated gunr a second in an expanded condition it shows no disposition to re turn to its original length; but if one immerses it in hot water it contracts to one-fourth or ono-iifthl of its original length. Maxwell has found that similar phenomena are produced in gntta percha. -For the purpose of determining the capacity of a horse to undergo the priva tions incident to a stato of siege, a series of experiments has been made in Paris. The results show: that a horse may hold out for twenty-five days without any solid nourishment, provided it is supplied with sufficient good drinking-water; that a horse can subsist barely five days without water; and, thirdly, that if a horse is well fed for ten days, but insuffi ciently supplied with water throughout this period, it will not outlive the eleventh day. A horse which had re ceived no solid nourishment for twelve days was nevertheless in a condition to draw a load of six hundred pounds on the twelfth day of its fast.

Thomllson, 211 CANAL STREET, NEWV ORLEANS. Piles, Fistula and Fissure Cured without the use of the KNIFE, LIGATURE OR CAUSTIC, Free from pain, danger or loss of time from business. These Diseases Receive Special Attention and Cures Guaranteed. Epilopsy or Fits treated with wonderful success, as all cases are carefully examined, and nudno taken but those offering good prospects of curing. Impotency, Spermatorrhea and Sexual Debility, treated by medicine alone, has heretofore proved useless and even injuri ous. They do no good, is the universal tes timony of all honest physicians. Thousands have "doctored" for these complaints, and have thrown away their money and their t constitutions together, but the Doctor com- r bines medical treatment with electricity, the electricity being generated by a simple electrical apparatus that any one can use, and by these means insures success. Constipation, the bane of so many lives I and the most prolific gource of ill-health, cured by a simple method, with little or no medicine. Diseases of women treated by electricity, without pain or exposure. Stricture of the Urethra and Rectum cured without a surgical operation and without pain; Tape Worm, Diseases of the Kidneys, Bladder, Private Diseases, Rheumatism, Neuralgia, Nervous and Sick Headache, Asthma, Weak, Painful and Sore Eyes, with 'ut a surgical operation; Deafness, Noise in the Ears, all Skin Diseases, Scrof ula, Tumors, Loss of Voice, etc., success fully treated by improved remedies.

You can get a pair of spectacles that will keep your eyes in as good condition forever after as when first yon use them. These Medicated Glasses have been thoroughly ex amined and analyzed by Prof. Berger, the great French oculist, and Dr. Carl. Hollander the famous German oculist, and pronounced as far superior to any glass as yet made, and recoimmended as the only glasses to be used to save the eye. American oculists claim that the Medicated Glasses have no equal, and can in some cases restore the eye to its original sight, when used in time, and in no case can the eye become impaired by the use of these glasses, if properly adapted, Ior the following reasons: 1. The chemicals soften the light to the eye, conmpletely doing away with that tiresome sensation that is usually expierienced in using glasses after one or two hours' use. 2. The medicated properties contained in the glass make it as hard as a diamond. It will retain its polish and never become dull or aim, tence you will always see through it as bright and clear as at first. 3. The chemicals keelp the glasses cold as ice-result is, your optic nerves always cool, doing away with any feverish sensation to the eye. 4. These glasses have no equal for night reading or sewing. With them you can sit up all night, and the light has no effect on the eye, with no tiresome sensation whatever, which necessarily continues to imnprove the eye. We suit all eyes and warrant our work, or money refunded. Persons living at a distance, desiring the Medicated Glasses, can be fitted by sending address with postage stamln. The Medicated Glasses can only be had at 74 St. Charles Street, as we have no agents, nor do we employ peddlers. Granulated and Sore Eye-lids cured without the use of knife or other extreme measures.
