(including postage) 6 50 Payable Invariably in Advance The Iyak as a Climber. The Hill Dyaks of Borneo are expert climbers. Mr. Ilornaby, while collect ing specimens of natural history, saw a Dyak ascend a large tapang tree, five feet, in diameter at the base, straight as a ship's mast, and without the smallest limb or knot for 120 feet up. The man went up the tree to secure a bees' nest hanging from the under side of the lowest limb. The nest was simply a large, naked, triangular piece of wliite comb. A Dyak "ladder" had been put up the ' previous year, and reached from the ground to the branches. It consisted of seven twenty foot bamboo poles held al most end to end alongside the trunk by sharp pegs driven into the soft woo I about two feet apart. The pegs were driven first on one side of the ioles and then on the other, and to them the bamboos were lashed by rat tans, which held them firmly about eight inches from the tree. These pegs served as the rungs of the ladder. The builder must have been a bold man, with nerves of steel. He was obliged to let the ends of the poles over lap a few feet in order to build the ladifor with safety to himself. The completion of the ladder was most difficult. Clinging to the slight bamboo pole, 100 feet from the ground, he haaied up the last bamboo, twenty feet long, drove in the peg, lashed the lower end of the jole to it, and then ascended that shaking bamboo to fasten it at the top. The Dyak honey hunter fastened to his back a basket to receive the honey. Mak ing up his torchwood, with which to smoke the bees out of the nest and away from liimself, he ignited it, slung it by a cord from his neck, so that it would hang below his feet, and stejrted up the slender "ladder." Hand and foot he went up, peg after peg, with a nonchalant ease which would have done credit to the most daring of sailors. Even that sailor would have been pardoned if he was a little shaky, while climbing, a tall factory chimney by the lightning rod. On reaching the lower limb, 123 feet from the ground, he took his torch in one hand, waved it to and fro, until it smoked freely, and then crawled out along the bare branch until he was in reach of the coveted nest. Examining it first on one side, and then on the other, he shouted down as cheer fully as if his climb had been nothing, "No honey!" Leaving the comb untouched, he de scended, with a smile, and reached the ground without the least tremor.- Youth's Companion. The Lick Telescope. What the Lack telescope will do will depend on men who have the handling of it. It will not make discoveries of itself. All that can 1x3 said of it is that it will place in the hands of painstaking com petent observers the best means now in existence of scanning the heavens. If they do not turn the means to account it will not be the fault of the telescope. In times past some small telescopes have made more important discoveries than stand to the credit of some of the large telescopes of our day. But this is not be cause the small instruments were better, but because in proportion to the progress of exploration the unexplored area of the heavens naturally diminishes. There is less to be discovered now than there was in the time of the elder Herschel. Nor is it logical to deride large tele scopes because Lord Rosse's great instru ment has added little to its early nebular discovery. His telescope is powerful, but it is not exact or accurate, and every observer knows that exactness and pre cision in a telescope are even more im portant than power. Professor Davidson says that the Lick telescope will unveil stars of one degree fainter magnitude than can be detected by the instruments now in use. This would be no small gain. A correspondingly increased power ought to add to our knowledge of Mars, which is the planet of most immediate interest to observers on this globe. San Fran cisco Call. l.yury to Oue's Own Trade. A vulgar spoken man can do a great deal of injury unknowingly to one's tr-vie. There are men who can never be restrained. If anything goes at variance with them, they make no scruple of flinging out an oath or a vile epithet. To ladies this is particularly distasteful, and there are sensitive gentlemen too who can. not endure it. Neither may say any thing, but they quietly stay away, and the result is that while one retains the foul mouthed man's trade he may lose the custom of four or five equally as good, if not better. The defect is a hard one to correct. Globe-Democrat. ROYAL INSURANCE CMP'Y OF LIVERPOOL. CAPITAL, - - SIO.OOO.OOO UNLIMITED LIABILITY.
