Sir William Turner, the eminent rr fpssor of anatomy in the University i Edinburgh, recently delivered a h-clr.: to the members of the Philosophical in stitution of that city on "Whales; Tlu-it-Structure and Habits," in the courst; c wiiich he referred to a jx)int of consider able interest to engineers, which was the liorse power exerted by the tail of a Uir;o whale. Regarding the length of full grown whales. Professor Turner re marked that the porpoise was four or five feet long, whereas the Greenland from tlftv to sixty feet long, and he said that the great tinner whale, which frequently visited the British seas, reached the length of eighty feet or even more. An animal of the latter sort was stranded at Longniddry, some years ago. After speaking at some length on the structure of whales, the lecturer made some remarks on the rate of speed at which they traveled. It had been esti- mated, he said, that the ureemanu wiuuu culd attain a speed of nine or ten miles an hour, and that the tinner whale at tained even a greater speed. In all probability, the Longniddry whale could propel itself through the water at the rate of twelve miles an hour, and the sperm whale was capable of driving itself along at the same rate of speed. He had asked John Henderson, of Glasgow, the well known builder of the Anchor lines, to assist him in arriving at the horso power which must be exercised by on of these great whales so as to acquire speed of twelve miles an hour, and he put the case of the Longniddry whale before him. It was eighty feet long, weighed seventy-four tons, and had a tail eighteen to twenty feet across from the extreme ends of its flanges. With these data, Mr. Henderson calculated that a whale of the dimensions men tioned, in order to attain a speed twelve miles an hour, would ramire to exercise a propelling force of 145 horse power.

Cleanliness is a great enemy of bacterial life. Secure, as nearly as possible, per fection in drainage, ventilation and water supply. Overcrowding, stagnant water, decomposing animal and vegetable mat ter, and foul drains, furnish very favor able conditions for the development, or rather the breeding, of germs; for, re member that the specific germs are never spontaneously generated. Bad hygienic surroundings may induce disease, but not the specific contagious diseases to which we have referred. Finally the most important point exclude the germs; for as a field, bo it never so well plowed and fertilized, will not yield a crop without seed, so, however favorable the conditions for breeding fevers and diphtheria may be, they will not occur without the intro duction of germs. To exclude them re quires constant and painstaking watch fulness. The enemy may gain admission through the milk supply, through im nroperlv disinfected clothing, or through personal contagion, wnicn iv is aoiuuo, im possible to avoid. Manv germs possess great vitality, and when once they have gained access to a house, or any of its contents, resist de struction most persistently. They may be destroyed in various ways. Bi-chlo-ride of mercury in solutions of 1 part to 2 000 to 5,000 is efficient; carbolic acid. 1 to 20 to 50, and heat, es pecially in the form of hot steam, are all useful. Fumes of sulphur are also good in closed rooms; but nothing can take the place of cleanliness ana waxcmuinwti against the introduction of disease germs. Francis P. Whittlesey, M. D., in Good.
