The "SuMime I'orte.'
The 'building of the porte, called sub-
lime, is, or w;ts. a kind of long, low
barracks, without stvle and without !
jfiMy. A fire destroyed part of it .some
llui phra:o "-ubhme rrte" is applied
to WJt the Vn:!ding and the administra
tion, two things that are important, but
neither the on; nor the other is sublime.
This word has, however, a very ancient
origin. VjV ri the Turks, long before
the cjnquet, were only hordes of Tar
tars and nomads, their chiefs or sultans
were in the habit of dispensing justice at
the door of their tent. There- the cadis
assembled and heard the complaint and
then the defense. The sultan appeared
upon the spot only at the concluson of
the trial to get the opmious of the judge
and to render Ids decidon. To go to the
Iorte was for the Turks the equivalent of
peeking jastice at tho hands of the sultan
and his counselors.
As to the puinous epithet 'sublime"
cou)I(-l with this poor porte, it is one of
those Oriental sj)-che that the flattery
of the weak lms Ix-s.towed voluntarily
upon the tyranny of tho strong. Tho
Turkish lanu;ge alxumds in these quali
ficatives hici-ne.-s, e.(eiknce, divine,
celestial, sublime which in our day and
in the v.-i .-t ofiend the dignity of those
that receive them and of those that
bestow them, but which one in the east
can freely be-.-tow upon high parsonages
without laughing or making them laugh.

The "devil hawk" of Arizona is a rare
bird, and an intt resting one. He is de

plumage but a very ugly head. His
talons are long ami strong." and his beak
is almost as sharp as a needle and very

when on the wing would pass for a

easily captures what he wants. He is
the picture of grace and beauty and
ppeed. It is estimated that there are not
more than a dozen of them in tho terri

about him, and regard his appearance as
an evil omen. New York Sun.

the patients 1-eing in good health at the ;
ends cf r-ri'L- vaiying from 3 to 27 years.
A mass of statistics might be brought
to show that in many instances cancer
has loon radically cured, and in other
cases life lias Loeri indefinitely prolonged
by the use of the knife. A few special
cases will serve to show this. Dr. Vi'eir
reports a case in which the right breast
was amputate! by Dr. James R. VV-od
in lt5o. In 1537 Dr. Poet ampUtate-i
the left breast. In IS 73 Dr. Weir re
moved a recurrent growth from the right
side, and again in l w77 and 1SS0. the pa
tient finally dying of the dL-ease 25 years
after its first appoarance. Dr. Frank H.
Hamilton operated upon a patient who
survived the exci-ion 20 years, and an
other patient of his. whose breast was en- j
tirely removed, survived the operation for j
10 yean;. Ca.-5 or tins description might
ho multij: Ikd. Dr. Slirady, Gen. Grant's
jhysiciam claims that the disease is or
'anic. and in no way hereditary. He be
lieves that its origin is locab and is there
fore removable, and that the constitution
becomes affected only secondarily by a
more or ie-s widespread dissemination of
original cancer grms. The failure of
one excision to affect a cure in no wise
ohsconcerts him. The disease is insidious,
and a careful microscopic examination is
necessary to fodow its various ramifica
tions. Where the growth is not in prox
imity to the vital organs, operation after
operation may be trie! with impunity.
In the case of Gen. Grant, the entire
throat was affected and an operation
meant certain death, otherwise an opera
tion would liave been tried. It is an ex
ception for more tlian one member of a
familv to beconie the Aictim of cancer.
In fact it may be confidently said that no
human being can be sure of escaping the
disease until he has passed the age of its
occurrence, which is when his vital ma
cninery i3 entirely worn out. In ocher
words he can ever be considered fortunate
in respect to cancer until he is dead.

Navigation of the Air.
Among the securities to be dealt in for
the Consolidated Stock Exchange of New
York are those of the National Aerial
Navigation company. A corporation i3
actually in existence, with a large capi
tal, whose aim is to test the various in
ventions designed to give man a3 com
plete control of the air as he now has of
the water and the earth, in carrying him
from point to point on the surface of the
globe. One good may result from the
war in Europe. It i3 known that there
is a French bureau which ha3 made suc
cessful exijoriments in air navigation.
Captive balloons proved useful in the last
Europoan war. Observations from them
gave some idea of the movements cf the
enemy's various corps d'armee. A navi
gable balloon or aerostat, under some sort
of control, would be of the utmost value,
as, moving from jomt to point, it could
discern and inform the general command
ing wliat the enemy's designs were. It
is known that a Capt. Ranard and others
have been able to navigate the Eir when
there was not much wind blowing. But
the full results of the experiments have
been a well kept military secret. Un
doubtedly, war in Europe would develop
all tJiat has been done in atrial navi&ra
tion. .But why wait for war. Demor
Catching Birds with Fishing Nets.
Tins is the season for the red breasted,
robin, as toothsome a3 he is pretty.
Abundant as these birds are in the up
county, they are notlung compared with
the number of those on the coast. In
the morning and evening they fly up and
down the 4dviks" in gangs of millions.
The strips of ueach are narrow, and it ia
always easy to know just where the birds
fly, since they pjursuc a certain route.
So the fishermen this being a dull sea
son employ their seines in catching birds.
They set the seines between tall poles on
the beach and catch thousands of robins,
in a morning or afternoon. At one
"flight" a man caught over 2,000. He
put away half for food for his family and
fdiipped the others. On Bogue bank,
with a small net, a Mr. Rose caught 500
robins. The birds fly quite low, and do
not oljserve the net at all. The people
who have set the nets are always con
cealed near by.- -Raleigh Cor. Richmond
Opium in the Cigarette.
Capt. Jolin McCulLigh, of the sixth
precinct, is an expert on all that pertains
to opium smoking. He has broken up more
joints than most New Yorkers would sup
pose ever existed. He can tell an opium
smoker by looking at him, but he con
fesses that he is sometimes deceived by
the resemblance between the pipe hitters
and the cigarette smokers. 'Cigarette
smokers are so like opium smokers," he
says, "that they have even the peculiar
odor of the pipe hitters. They also have
the same dry and ruddy cheeks, the same
parched lips, and the same habit of con
stantly wetting their lips with their
tongues. ' ' The captain thinks there must
be a great deal of opium in cigarettes.
