Business men wiil please note the fact, and act accordingly. Wonders of Temperature. Every one knows there is no such separ ate existence as "cold." Cold is onlj' an ah sence of heat ; hence, when we require great cold, we must use some body which is de manding large quantities of heat. Every solid, to become a liquid, absorbs a huge amount of heat; this heat (called latent heat) is so pi e-occupied in keeping the body in a liquid state that it can do nothing else, and refuses to have any effect on a ther mometer placed in it. Just so with steam. Although the temperature of the steam as it issues from the spout of the kettle is just the same as'that of the water, yet we know that, weight lor weight, the steam contains more than live times the heat which is iu the water. If, then, we re quire for any purpose a low temperature, we must force some solid to become a lluid, or some fluid to become a vapor. lhe confectioners apply this principle in making '"ices." The creamy preparation, placed in a metallic vessel, is immersed in broken ice mixed with salt. Now it hap pens that, for some unknown reason, salt and ice so act upon each other as to cause the ice to liquify, but this it is unable to do unless it has heat : this it abstracts from the cream, which consequently freezes. Two parts of pounded ice mixed with one of common salt can reduce the temperature 6 deg. below the freezing point ot water; or if, instead of the salt, three parts of crystallized chloride of lime be used, so low a temperature is produced that mercury will freeze. Yet low as we can get the temperature hy these "freezing" mixtures, it is nothing to the wonderful degree of in tense cold which the vaporization of some liquids can produce. there is every reason to believe that gases are in reality liquids in vapor. Many of them, by lieiug forced into a wrought iron receiver, by means of a forcing pump, can be liquefied. Of course, when the li quid is taken out of the receiver, and re lieved ot the enormous pressure under which it existed, it immediately endeavors to return to its gaseous state. It is in a tremendous hurry to do this, and, seeing it is unable to become a vapor without it re ceives a great increase of heat, it commands all the surrounding bodies to deliver up their heat iu the most peremptory manner. Laughing-gas, or nitrous oxide, so condensed under a pressure of 450 lbs. ou every square inch of the receiver which held the gas, aud then liherated, can produce a tempera ture by its rapid evaporation nearly 200 below the ireezmg-point oi water; aud, by causing this process to go on under the exhausted receiver of an air-pump, the greatest cold has been produced nearly 300 Ueg. below the temperature of ice. Eut perhaps a more remarkable fact is this: that it is possible to cause extreme of temperature to exist iu the closest juxtt position. If some of the liquefied gas above mentioned lie placed in a red-hot platinum rucilile, and then a little water dropped on t, the w ater w ill turn iuto ice. Imagine reeziug in a rcd.hot crucible! nay, even aercury can lie made to take the solid state unler similar circumstances, and frozen ueictiry is so cold that when held in the land it will blister it as though it had lieeu a piece of red-hot iron. The reason tlrttt the liquefied gas was not instantly dissi pated by the heat is the same as that which causes a drop of water to dance about on nu almost red-hot plate of metal : the drop does not really touch the plate, but is sur rounded by au atmosphere of vapor, upon a thiu layer of which it rests. An ingen ious application ofthisreallywondern.il fact has been long iu use in glass-works. The mode of making British plate-glass is to blow a cylinder of glass, then cut it open and spread it out. To make the cylinder eveu and symmetrical, the glass is blown in a wooden mould, the sides of which are vetted with water; the red-hot glass con verts this iuto steam, w hich keeps the glass from burning the wood, aud also from touching the water, which would at once spoil it, rendering it brittle. If possible, more wonderful, and indeed, all but incredible, is the finding of ice over which a lava-bed has been poured centuries ago. The ice was first covered with a layer of cinders, wh ich are bad conductors of neat, tnon came me ruoiien lava; anu iiie non - conductiiiK liowcr of the iishos proved . ... ..... . ,.e i simiciem, ie jimuui iw ixciii. wi iiio iuy trwa nicltiii"; the ice. I is to America's Industrial Supremacy. "Every war, even a victorious war. is a national calamity." So writes the Count Von Moltke, Germany's most successful warrior. And he might have added : To be constantly preparing for war is a national calamity but little inferior to actual war fare. In 1879, Europe expeuded for mili tary and naval purposes something near SjSOO,000,000, and did no fighting. This great burden was borne chietly by eight powers, as follows: Kussia, $173,710,ol() ; Great Britain, $1 5:5,51 0.0(H); France, liH,-5-20,000; Germanv, $101.2f,000 ; Austro-Hungarv-, S.":?,0?4,0h') ; Italy, JH.O.ii'.OOO ; Spain, f 28,500,000; Turkey, $-23,800,000. This profitless squandering of money which tiie over taxed producershave to fur nish is unfortunately not the wboleof the blood tax upon Europe in times ot peace. The national debts of Europe, due almost entirely to past war3 and preparations for future conflicts, amount, to more than twenty billion dollars, the interest of which the producers have to meet. Aliont eight een billions of debt stand against the eight powers aliove named. In commenting upon these facts, the Scientific American says that tho United States comprise aliont the same area as the great states of Europe combined, and already have nearly one-filth as many inhabitants. In all probability children now born may live to see United America equal in popula tion to all Europe. From our continental position, any great aggressive war in Amer ica by American men is altogether impos sible, and the prospect of great civil war is, we are happy to believe, not less remote. Our strength is rapidly becoming so great if it is not already so that no foreign nations are likely to assail Ui and the aver sion of our people to fot-eign entanglements is likely to keep us from offensive foreig wars. j Tha natural advantages of America fa diversified and prosperous industries art certainly not less than those enjoyed bj Europe; and onr people are quite as capa ble as those of Europe of making the most of their industrial opportunities. The prob lem of industrial supremacy is, therefore, not hard to solve. The single advantage we enjoy in being free from the terrible war-burden of Europe, even" in times of peaces and our practical exemption from risk of foreign wars, cannot tail to main tain us in our position as the most prosper ous people in the world. Good health is impossible when the blood is impure, or when it is thin ami cold. Under such conditions one disease after another is developed. Boils, pirn pies, headache, neuralgia, rheumatism, etc.. are the result of impure blood, and the wisest course is to make the blood pure. rich and warm by the use of Ayer'3 Sarsa- parilla. necow2 "Tasted Dretful Queer." TYe have heard of people curing otliert of rising strong drink by lmttius Mi emetic into their whisky bottles. The following story, told in JIamer's Draic- er, illustrates the wedding manners cf seventy years ap;o, mid the simplicity of a green vomig iJeneiiict. A minister of Xewlmryport was once called up, after he had gone to bed, to marry a couple. The hour was late, and the minister's wife did not rise to wit ness the ceremony, but gave her hus band particular directions tthe enter tainment of the wedding grists. "Don't forget to pass t.'io rake and wine, doctor," said- she. "The cake is in the corner cupboard, and you will find tlie wine on the third right-hand shelf in the sideboard." The doctor promised obedience, put on his clothes, and went down to perform the ceremony. Returning a half houi later, he found hia wife sitting up in bed, with an anxious expression on her face. "Doctor," she cried, "did you give then any wine ?" "Certainly, my dear ; just as you told me." "Not from the decanter on the thii c shelf of tlie sideboard ?" . "That is exactly where you directcc me to lind it, wife." -"Dear I dear ! Did they drink much of it?" 1 "Why, yes ! They emptied theii glasses. " "What shall we do ! Doctor, I nia:le a mistake it was ipecac wine you gave them. Oh, how sick they must be ' Do, dear, put on your cloak and go righi aftr them ; they can't have got far."

A STRANGE VOYAGE OF TWO LITTLE CHILDREN IN 1858. When Mr. Wise W33 lost in his balloon, called the Pathfinder, the newspapers print ed many accounts of trips made into the air, some by brave men. and some by fool ish ones. A lady who lives in the town of Centralis, in the state of IL'in9is,said noth ing until all the rest had done talking. Then, she told the editor of the St. Louis Bepnbliran to look into the number of that paper that was printed on .Sept 21. 1:33. The editor looked, and found an account of hew two little children took a trip in a bal loon all by themselves. On that day, an aeronaut, or sailor of the air. named Brook3, filled his air-ship with gas on the farm of 3Ir. Harvey, who lived near Centralia. He expected to sail in the afternoon. About noontime Mr. Harvey pnt his two children into the basket of the balloon just to please them, and not thinking for a mo ment of any danger. The balloon was tied to a tree by ropes. AU at once a gust of wind broke the ropes, and the balloon got np into the skv with nobody but the two chil dren in the basket. Mr. Harvey was wild with grief; and shouted aloud : "They're lost ; they're lost ! " All the neigh bors ran to the spot, only to see the balioon drifting off to the nerth. and more than a mile high. One of the children was a girl, Nettie, eight years old, and the other her little brother Willie, four years old. Both cried when they found themselves leaving the ground and going on a very, very strange jonrney indeed. Nettie looked over the edge of the basket and saw her Hither wringing his hands away below. Soon the people looked smaller to her than babies, and the bouses like toy houses. She and Willie were going up, up all the time. " I expect we are going up to Heaven, Willie," said Nettie. Willie thought it was very cold in heaven then, for the higher they went the colder it grew. Nettie wrapped Willie in her apron, and held his head in her lap until he cried himself fast asleep. Then Nettie folded her hands and waited. She said, "I think we must be near the gate now." She meant the gate of Heaven, that she had heard about in Sunday School. But Nettie tell asleep, too. hen she awoke she foimd that some stranire man was li:t- iag her from the basket. 'The strange man was a farmer, in Northern Illinois, w ho had seen a balloon drifting low down across a field. The rope was dragging, and so he caught it, and landed the children safely. The balloon had floated all night Nettie's and Willie's father soon learned that they had been found, ami took them home two days afterwftrd. Nettie is now a woman and the very same one who told the editor of the Bepublican to look back to the files for the storar.
