Youth's Companion. COLUMBUS' BIRTHPLACE. Aa Honor cialaaea' br lml Italian CtUs and a Careleaa row a. Four or five great cities ot the Union are now struggling for the honor of the quadri-centennial exhibition in 1892, which Is to celebrate the discov ery of America by Christopher Colum bus. It Is. therefore, a very appropri ate time for furbishing up our knowl edge of this great navigator. We know when he was bora and died, the achievements ot his life and the discoveries he made, but, strange to say, we do not know to a certainty where he was born or burled. The Cubans claim that his bones lie in Ha- vanna, and the Dominican are poel tlve that the remains are in the oity of Santo Domingo. But this Is a trifling trouble compared with the war being waged over the birthplace ot Columbus. Our school-books assure us that he was born In Genoa, but this statement Is based on Insufficient testimony. Ko authenticated documout Is In existence proving that Christopher Columbus was born In Oenoo. The three biographers, his contem poraries, Gallo, Uuistinlanl and Fog lletta, merely designate him as a "Ge noese. Now, It happens that at the time of the birth of Columbus, the Island ol Corsica belonged to Genoa, and the Genoa Senate had granted to the town of Calvt, in Corsica, the special prlvt lege then called city's right; so that the Calvt people were called "Genoese citizens." The municipality used on the legal and official paper the very best seal ot Genoa, with the motto. "Sigillunt eommunitatit Cahi. So, then, if Columbus was born In Calvl, he would have been a Genoese, just the same as It he had been born In Genoa. That is one point 'in Calvl's favor, and the city has many looul tra dition to support Its claim. 'Altogetb er, they believe in it so fully that on July 30, 1886, they placed memorial plaque upon a house of Colombo street. formerly Del Fllo street (Tbreadneedle street Columbus father was a weaV' er), where tradition says the great navigator came into the world. Moreover, there was at Calvl a fan lly by the name ot Colombo, whose traces can be followed In the parish register from the sixteenth to the eighteenth centuries. It Is worth noticing, also, that, according to the narrative made by Don Fernando ot the discovery of America, there were on ooara tne notuia oi Loiumbu a pack of Corstcan hounds, and also a pretty good number of Corslcan natives, probably from Calvl. The above tacts, recently published la Europe, do not settle the disputed question relative to the birthplace ot Columbus, but they indicate that a strong tradition is in existence, ac cording to which his birthplace would be the seaport of Calvl, In Corsica, Ot course it makes no practical dlf- lerence to us wnere Columbus was born or where he was buried, and It is quite likely that the general conviction that he was born In Genoa will remain undisturbed.

The An Quick In Deteetlns: Bvldaaaas of Feminine Frivolity. "Very forward," was the orittclsm said to have been made by the Queen of England on the occasion ot the pre sentation of one of our most beautiful American girls. Said distinguished English gentleman, a few years ago: "Her Majesty seems to tend very strictly to the matter In hand, but there is not a trick ot manner or a de tail of dress that escape her notice. Her Intuition are so keen, and the val ue that she sets on modesty 1 so great, hor interest In the young so sincere, that she has become a famous reader ot character. The Queen de tests a flint, and she can detetect one of these specimens almost at a glance, Neither velvet nor satin nor precious stones can caBt sufficient glamor over a tendency of this kind to hide It from these truly motherly eyes. It Is said that one day when Her Maj esty was present In her carriage at a military review, the Princess Royal, then about fourteen, seemed disposed to be a little familiar and, possibly, slightly coquettish, In thoughtless, girlish fashion, with the young officers ot the guard. The Queen tried to catch her daughter's eye, but the gay uniforms were too attractive, and the little Princess paid no attention to the silent endeavor of her mother. At last, In a spirit ot fun, she capped the climax of misdemeanors by dropping her handkerchief over the side ol the carriage, and the Qten saw that It was not an accident. Immediately two or three gentleman sprang from their horses to return it to her, but the hand of royalty waved them off. "Thank you.but it is aot necessary," said Her Majesty. "Leave it Just where it lies," and then turning to her daughter, she laid: "Mow I must ask you to get down and pick up your handkerchief." ., "But, mamma " The little Princess1 face was scarlet, and her lip quivered with shame. HOW TO SAVE TIME. II Caa Ia Dona bv Making: Kverr Word ana Ever? Aot roll. Time Is money, says the old adage. Millions ot people do not seem to think so, or else are exceedingly profligate in the use of money. The waste of the precious moments is beyond computa tion, and we do not mean to touch up on the generally recognized methods of wasting time which the idler and drunkard, for instance, make use of. We desire particularly to call atten Hon to the waste of time, ot which so many ot us are guilty, In ordinary bus iness affair. We lack strict method In many things that we do every day. The man who build an Inconvenient house or barn makes the waste ot time a necessity. Every unnecessary step we take Is a waste of time. Perhaps the average man wastes a quarter of his life by practicing poor method or no method at all. Frequently old cus toms are greatly to blame for the profligacy. We too often Insist In seeping in oiq rut aimougn It re quires mucn longer to arrive at a certain point by the old rut than If we go out and cut across lots. It Is said that leaving out the lettor u in words like honour is equivalent in saving to the world the productive capacity of five hundred men every year. That is it took all the time of five hundred men every year to make that letter In such words a the one named. The old system of teaching in our schools was another illustration of the waste ot time through Imperfect methods and old customs. It required weeks and months for a child to learn the alphabet. It required other weeks and months for It to learn the multi plication table. Now many a child 1 taught to road, who could not re peat the alphabet to save its life, and Is quite proficient In arithmetic with out being able to repeat the multipli cation table.

How MouoLW Troops Ara Mora hi - Tlmao of Paooa an4 War. Owing to the peculiar nature of the servica demanded ot the cavalry force of our army service for the greater part in a new and unsettled country, and against the moat wily and expert of savage enemies the experience gained in the moving of mounted troops has been ot such a varied nature that probably no other army can boast of superiority over our troopers In this respect, and the proper conduct ot the marches ot cavalry commands requires experience and judgmsnt. Intelligence. activity and endurance ot a peculiar nature on the part ot both officers and men. Ordinary marches are general ly made at the rate ot about twenty to twenty-live miles a day, this being ac complished in from five to six hours, although there ore times when the day's journey may be shorter or long er, owing to the distance from one another ot desirable camping-places, the Importune of good grazing and sweet water tor the horses being evident The start from the previous night's camp U us- ally made between six and seven o'clock, although in some ot the hot ter parts of the country an earlier time of day Is considered advisable by many cavalrymen, and the first halt Is made after the column has been an hour or so on the road. This Is generally the longest halt ot the day. when saddle are adjusted, and the horse allowed to rest and graze for a few moments. Once every hour after that a short pause of about five minutes, the met Invariably dismounting, I made. Tt gait is, as far as the writer's experi ence goes, habitually a rapid walk, although General Morritt recom mends a trot for ten or fifteen min utes after each halt, w hen practica ble, which appears to be the custom in most of the European services. In a country where the near presence of an enemy is known or suspected marches are conducted with great caution, and every precaution taken by caretul soldier to guard against surprise. Advance guards and flankers are thrown out lu front and on the sides ot the column, and every ravine, coulee or canyon, every rock and bush, or group of trees large enough to con ceal a lurking foe. Is carefully exam ined. It la while making a forced march, when perhaps the safety ot some little community of settler or detachmont of comrades, cut off and surrounded by savage foes, depends upon the speedy arrival ot the reliev ing column, that the training, the pluck, the perseverance and endur ance of the American cavalry are shown to the greatest advantage. In the rapidity with which such marches have been made, the distances that have been travorsed, the rough and tnhospltal country often swarm ing with savage toes over which the journeys have been accomplished, it has proved itself the equal. If not the superior to any troops of the kind In the civilized world. A column of the Fifth Cavalry, under the command of General Wesly Merritt, marching to the relief ot Thornburgb' brave fel lows in the Ute campaign of 1879, made one hundred and seventy miles from 11 s. m. October 2d to 5:30 a, m. on October 6th, without losing or dis abling a borso, and was In good light ing trim on Its arrival at its objective point Among many instances of the kind that have come under the knowl edge of the writer, the following cases of hard and long marches by Individu al may be quoted to show the sterling qualities often exhibited by our trooper. In 1870 tho present commander of the troop of cavalry attached to the brigade of the National Guard In New York City at that time a Lieutenant in the First United States Cavalry rode with dispatches over a rough broken country one hundred and forty miles in twenty-two hours, Including halts for rest and refreshment He was accompanied by a sergeant and one man of his own troop. After rest ing one day, the journey back to his post was mode In a little over two days, the marches being from fifty-five to sixty mile a day. This feat was accomplished without any preparation whatever, the offl3erand his men being ordered out without any warning. Ten years afterward Lieutenant Robertson, ot the same regiment with Sergoants Lynch and Price, rode one hundred and two mile In pursuit of a deserter, through snow and loe, betweon ten o'clock one night and 8:30 the next On the next day they started on their return journey from Fort Walla Walla, W. T to Fort Lapwny, Idaho, which was reached In two day. Harper' Weekly. Indeed, I have heard the phrase "it is me jusUQeo, on the ground that it vas a literal translation of the French "' til moi."

"He is older than V may not sound so well as "he Is older than me," yet the former Is the correct form It Is a very common mistake to say "Between you and I," and yet a mo ment's reflection should convince any one who has ever studied grammar that he should say "Between you and me."

Blnndars Thai Ara Froqoantlv Mads Through Shaar CnrrloMnaaa, Faults are pardonable In conversa tion which are not pardonable In writ ten compositions. But we must be careful not to take too much loeward In this regard, and not to make mis takes in grammar and pronunciation. Some people are guilty of grammatical blunders, through sheer carelessness. Thus, a lady of my acquaintance, who understands trigonometry, and can translate Virgil, often says to me "you was," and yet she knows per fectly well that this Is an Inexcusable mistake. Other people, who ought to know better, say "hedont" for "he doesn't" "I don't know as I do," Instead of "I don't know thai I do." "Aint" and "taint" are not often used now by ed ucated people, unless In a jesting way. It Is an unwise thing, however, to be careless or Inaccurate In one's pronunciation or use of language, since tricks of speech are easily caught and very hard to get rid of. Thus, when one is talking to servants, or ether uneducated people, one is often tempted to adopt their phrase ology, In order to ,be readily under stood by them, but it I better to with stand the temptation, even If one should be obliged In consequence to take more trouble to express one's meaning clearly. What-shall be said of the woman who says "I done it?" She ha cer tainly placed herself between the born hearers will Infer Basalts Obtain from tho Stnd at Ml aata CavlUat la Koaas. Various delicate and beautiful methods of analysis have been devised tor the determinatloo of the micro scopic quantities ot this liquid. Let us note briefly some of the theoretical results obtained from the study ot these cavities In the rocks. It Is to be inferred, then, that the rocks contain ing them. If they have cooled down from Igneous fusion, must have done so under great pressure, in fact must have been great enough to keep the contents ot the cavities liquid at temperature which, under atmospheric pressure, would have converted them into vapor. Ot course, this argument could not apply to lavas which havs cooled at the surface; but It ha been observed that In these the crystals eon talnlng cavities bear evidence ot being derived. It Is supposed that crystals from the granite mass below floated on the molten lava before It was ejected from the vol cano without being fused. When the lava was poured out the granite crystals came with It This seems to indicate that granite and lava are formed from the same subterranean reservoir, and thus the study of the cavities odds a fresh link to the chain ot evidence which now loads geologists to consider granites, basalts and lavas as produced from tho same molten mass by diverse circumstance ot cooling. The theory .hold by the older geologists, not so very many years ago, that granite was the orlg Inal first-formed rock of the globe, from which all others have been do rived, Is now exploded. Granites are known to be of all age. With regard to ; granite, it Is Inferrod that Igne ous fusion alone will not account for their formation; water has been pres ent and played its part In the process. Inferences have also been drawn from the quantity of liquid In the cavities as to the approximate depth at which certain granites have been formed. The expansion of the contained liquid at different temperatures being known, It can be calculated how great a pressure would be required to keeps cortaln quantity In the liquid state at a given temperature. This Involves a careful estimation ot the amount ot liquid Id a cavity. When their minute size is remembered 1,000,000.000 to 10,000.000,000 per cubic Inch the dif ficulties to be surmounted In obtaining the necessary duta may be conceived. First of all, the size of the cavity must be measured a accurately a possible; then, that of the bubble must be as certained. The difference of those glvos the amount of liquid. If, now, It 1 known, or can be estimated at what temperature the rock wo fused, It can be calculated what pressure waa required to keep the liquid within the limit ol the cavity. Such measure ments and calculation, have actually boon mode by Mr. Sorby. The result thus arrived at la that ninny granite have been formed at depth of from five and a half to fifteen mile. Slnoe many ot the same rock, now appear at the surface, we are here furnished with fresh evldonce showing that strata many miles In thickness have been removed by denudation from the surface of the land. Applying the tests to tho gran Itos of the Highlands and of Cornwall, it has been Inferred that the former have originated at a greater depth than the latter. Considering the large possibilities of error In estimating the size of the microscopic cavities and bubbles, we shall probably be lnollned to consider the results, as but shadowy approximations; yet they may be no cepted aa pointing at least in the right direction. Prof. Judd says: "The grand conclusioc that granite rocks could only have been formed under such great pressures as exist at great depths beneath the surface appears to be one not open to reasonable doubt THE COCKROACa Aa Unwslooma Importation from tha Baiinr Lands of Aaln. Comparatively few people know that this familiar of the kitchen Is not by any means a native ot these climes. It Is an importation from the warm and sunny lands of Asia, brought over, perhaps, something like two centuries ago. The first arrivals must have reached this country as stowaways on board ship, and finding themselves in congenial surroundings, they multl pllod apace. Now they seem almost everywhere, but for a long time after they swarmed In the kitchens of town houses they were unknown In the country. No doubt if they had been natives ot a similar climate thoy would have quickly reached even remote vil logos, but they fortuna ely have doll cate constitution, and enn not stand exposure to cold. Many people must have noticed that It is only in hot summer weuther that they are soon far away from the warmth of the kitchen fire. It Is this need for a high temperature which causes them to concentrate where it is most constant ly maintained. Cool larders and pan' tries are comparatively secure against their attacks, In spite of the fact that they would find bettor fare therein than the crumbs and particles upon tho kitchen floor. Their common de scription as "horrible black beetles" Is a curious misnomer. They ara not block, nor are they beetles; the only part of the description which Is at all applicable to thorn is the epithet "hor rible,'1 with which fow will quarrel. H. I.

One of the strangest notion, that ever grots into the head of people or seems to tret Into their heads, Is that tree can thrive without food. We have seen orchards that were starving to death for food, and the owner thought the orchard was falling; be cause It was old. In fruit tree culture there Is an old adnpo, too, that Is very applicable, viz: That a stitch In time saves nine. It Is not much trouble to keep an orchard up, II we supply what 1. needed, a soon as it Is required. But if an orchard Is neglected for sev eral years, it Is pretty hard work to repair the damage that has been done. If, indeed, it can be repaired at alU An experienced orchardlst gives this advice on restoring apple orchards: fIoderate pruning, careful and shal low culture and dressing with well rotted stable manure, finely-ground bone, ashes and lime, at intervals, or apply a full ration of special fruit fertilizer, after which sow red clover and plow under, alwny. being careful to inflict the lt-nat pns.lblo Injury to the roots.
