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. We are only Interested

QUEEN VICTORIA'S EYES.
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.

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

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

another ot desirable camping-places,

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,

MISTAKES IN GRAMMAR.
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

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

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

there Is an old adnpo, too, that Is very

saves nine. It Is not much trouble to
keep an orchard up, II we supply what
1. needed, a soon as it Is required.

An experienced orchardlst gives this
advice on restoring apple orchards:

low culture and dressing with well
rotted stable manure, finely-ground
