The Finest Come from Paris Chat with a Dealer- Cost. Nearly all the artificial eyes used in this country are imported from Europe. At tempts have been made to manufacture them here, but the industry has -never flourished. The finest eyes are made in Paris, and good ones tome from Ger many and Switzerland. The eyes are made of glass, and are in the shape of a hollow hemisphere. The pupil is formed of colored glass, and its execution re quires the greatest skill on the part of the workmen. The white of the eye is imitated with wonderful accuracy. It is of cream white, yellowish white, blue white, or any other shade so as to ex actly match the white of the remaining real eye. Before the final glazing is put on small red veins are traced with a pen cil on the surface. There' is a slight ridge along the edges which enables the muscles of the socket to take hold and move the ball. Dealers in artificial eyes keep them in separate boxes, which they call the blue box, the black box, the brown box, and so on. These boxes contain eyes of all sizes, from as large a3 a marble to one as large as a pigeon's egg. A dealer in artificial eyes said: "We tit the eyes to the sockets by heating and softening the ball, and then cutting it with hot scissors to the proper size and shape. The hollow part fits over the stump of the eye. When this is neatly done the eye moves as readily as the other eye, and it is difficult to tell which one is glass. The great majority of artificial eyes are used by workmen, especially those in iron foundries, where ''many eyes are put out by sparks. It is seldom that a woman l$a a glass eye. "Artificial eyes are used not only to improve the appearance, but also to protect the stump from injury, which would be apt to affect the other eye. An artificial eye costs $5, and lasts from one to five years. It is aoted upon by the salt of perspiration and of tears, which dulls and roughens the surface. For tliis reason it is customary to take the eye out at night, which also gives a rest to the socket. If the lachrymal duct has not been destroyed, a man can cry as well with an artifical eye as with a good one." New York Sun. Disappearance of Certain Animals. A few remaining herds of chamois in the Berner Oberland have become so shy that they avoid the haunts of men even in the coldest winters, and the Swiss papers predict that the next protracted frost, following a deep snow, will seal their doom. A few troops still elude pursuit in the wild highlands of the Canton Tessin and in the dreary summit-regions of the Styrian Alps, or are petted in the Tyrolese game preserves, but from the old hunting grounds of the Alpen Jager both the chamois and the ibex have, probably for ever, disappeared. The bustard (otis tarda), a fowl as large as a turkey, and once a favorite game bird of the south England and north German sportsmen, is now found only in th sandhills of the lower Volga. The beaver has disap peared from western Europe; the black cock survives only under the protection of a few hunting lords, and the last lynx the German hunting grounds was iiiled three years ago near the head waters of the Isar, in southern Bavaria. Dr. Oswald in Chicago Times. Natural Gas Going to Waste. The quantity of natural gas "blowing off" or going to waste is something start ling. The amount which is not utilized would more than furnish a city like Pitts burg with fuel in abundance. The loss hi wastage in two districts in Pennsylva nia, it is estimated, will reach 100,000,000 cubic feet per day. In the entire gas field about 264,000,000 cubic feet of gas are wasted daily an equivalent of 204, 000 bushels of coal burned in the air representing the daily, work of 3,800 Gainers.- New Orleans Times-Democrat. Medical Treatment In Italy. Medical treatment in out-of-the-way Italian villages seems to partake of the mature of practice in the dark ages njjngled with a little local superstition. jYaen a person swallows a stone, the nmgo" effects a sure cure by putting hot nuns on his patient and snipping slices off his ears. Italian babies are subjected J a bath -in red hot wine" and a feast oi' roast apples" to celebrate their birth, Uucago Times. ! ROYAL INSURANCE CMP'Y OF LIVERPOOL.
