Reecit Meteoric iBTestlf atlons.
On the tenth of July the earth piued
through the flnt of the two great rivers
of meteors which Internet Its orbit ; and
on November 13 or 14 It will encounter
another shower of snooting stars, of equal
magnitude. The band recently traversed,
known In ancient times as the Tears of
St. Lawrence, Is about 10,948,000,000 miles
In Its greatest diameter, and 4,043,360
miles wide at the point of tho earth's
crossing;. '
Probably the most recent Investigations
Into the nature of the erratic masses which
constitute these vast belts are those made
by Father Ferrari and others In the fall
of last year, recently published In Let
Mondu. They are based principally upon
the observation' of a remarkably brilliant
aerolite, which Ml near Onrlnla, in Italy,
during the latter part of August, 18ft.
The course of the body was from the
southward and eastward, It appearing at
Irst, quite small and emitting a reddish
light which gradually Increased in bril
liancy, leaving behind a misty train. Sud
denly the bolide flamed np apparently as
large as the moon, and then Instantly dis
appeared, a long cloud of serpentine form
remaining In Its place. About threemln
utes after, a violent explosion was heard,
Allowed by two others of less Intensity.
From the point of first observation to that
of Its disappearance, tbe meteor traveled
over a trajectory of OT miles, and its alti
tude at the beginning was measured at
30 o, corresponding to an elevation of
about 114 miles. The first detonation took
8 lace at a height of 10.2 miles, and the
nil bursting into small fragments at a
few hundred feet above the earth. The
velocity of the mass was calculated at 32.2
miles per second.
In order to determine the amount of
heat developed by tho aerolite after enter
lngour atmosphere, Schlapparelll's Inves
tigations were employed. Applying suit
able formulas to the case In point and as
suming the specific heat of Che body to be
22 of 1 centigrade, .which Is not far
from tho truth, It has been found that the
augmentation of temperature, after plung
ing into the earth's atmosphere would be
3,408,107.80 Fahrenheit, a degree far
more than sufficient to explain the phe
nomena cf light and heat, as well as of
the explosion or total dispersion of Im
mense masses.
A number of, fragments of the meteo
rite above referred to, quite small in every
Instance, were picked up and subjected to
careful examination. The mass was
crystalline, and formed of various sub
stances. An angle was polished with
difficulty, owing to the extreme hardness.
An abundance of malleable granules of
nlckleiferous iron were recognized. The
interior of the fragments appeared po
rous, but outside they were covered with
a pellicle of vitrified matter. Beyond the
Iron above mentioned, the greater part of
the mass contained soluble silicates, prin
cipally those of magnesium and of Iron.
From tho fact that It has been noted that
the meteors of the August and November
showers, traveling at the rate of from 36
to 40 miles per second, find an Insur
mountable obstacle In the atmosphere,
Schiapparclli has pointed out that only
bodies of an enormous magnitude would
be able to penetrate It and reach the sur
face of the earth In a fragmentary condi
tion. Ferrari observes that, from this, it
may be considered that the meteor he de
scribes, having a velocity ncarlv equal to
the above, mnst have been of tremendous
size, and he notes, as a remarkable fact,
that an unusual number of these bodies,
ten In all, fell In Europe between July and
September of last year.
The author states tho result of his ob
servation with the following conclusions
previously enunciated by Schlapperelil :
1. The Intlmiite correlation between the
comets, shooting stars, and meteorites is
now placed beyond doubt, and the Im
mense velocity observed in some meteor
rites renders it Impossible to, ascribe to
them a planetary origin; consequently
the hypothesis of stellar origin is the
most probable. 2. From this suppo
sition, the masses come from the
single body, since divers cases demon
strate the fact that they arrive from
totally different regions In stellar space.
3. The hypothesis admitted, It must fol
low that the chemical and molecular
structure of the bodies of the universe,
situated in different positions, must be of
similar nature to that of the meteorites
themselves.
The below given views regarding the
mlneraloirlcal structure and comnoiltlon
of aerolites are ascribed to Danbree, and
are the results of examination both by
soectral and chemical analvils ! 1. Hun.

Let Tonr Wife Know.
It Is a custom too common with the
men of the world to keep their families In
utter Ignorance of tho situation of their
business. The wife knows nothing, has
tot even an Idea of the amount of her
husband's fortune, whether It is to be
counted by the hundreds or the thous
ands. What can a woman kept In such
Ignorance learn ? She spends as a matter
of course, all he gives her to spend, with
the full confidence that when It is gone,
and she asks for It, he will give her more.
If an unmarried woman works, she
may go with a bold, unblushing face, and
demand her wages; but a wife can de
mand nothing, her claim is only for bare
necessity : and scnerous men. on that
account, arc too often Indulgent, too fear
ful of letting a wife know the exact state
of their finances. 'Tis all wrong.
Husband andwlfe have a mutual Inter
est; every woman should know the exact
state of her husband's finances, under
stand his plans, and aid him. if possible,
with her counsels, and then these terrible
catastrophes would not so often happen.
Many a wue wno is plunging her hus
band deeper and deeper Into debt through
Ignorance, would, if she knew his embar
rassments, be the first to save, and with
true womanly sympathy and generosity,
hrlp him to reinstate the fallen fortunes.

The Effects of Diet.
M. Cabasson is credited with havlntr
presented to the French Academy a curi
ous essay on tnat somewnai nacxneyeu
theme, the effect of diet on the moral and
Intellectual faculties of man. In a passage
of "Les Mlserables,?' Victor Hugo likens
French vivacity to tho light French
wines, and English ponderosity to "nor-
terbeer ;" and many Frenchmen are con
vinced that the distinguishing traits of
tne two nations may, in a great measure,
be ascribed to the use of these beverages.
But M. Cabasson SDeaks from experience
having experimented on his own person
with various articles of food. Coffee
taken on an empty stomach appears to
have produced most startllngeffects. He
states that Immediately after Imbibing It
his Ideas acquired unusual profundity,
his style In writing was cold but correct,'
while on the other hand, his temper un
derwent a pernicious change that Is, he
became morose, egotistical, and generally
disagreeable. A moderate breakfast re
stored him to his normal state, and the
disappearance of Intellectual profundity
was compensated for by an Influx of ge
nial and generous Ideas such, at least,
being the modest testimony of M. Cabas
son In his own case.
Good Lhci by the Baikel.
It is seldom that the poor and deserving
class of a community happen to a "good
streak of luck," and the tickle goddess of
fortune apparently alms her shafts above
those whose condition In life would be
benefited by the bestowal of her Avon.
An honest, hardworking machinist,
named Joseph F. Police, has been at
work in the State road shops In this city
for a long time, and was accounted by
the "bosses" at one of their steadiest and
most reliable workmen, who supported
his small family by the dally sweat of his
brow. There was living in the city of
Charleston, S. C, an old uncle of Mr.
Police, who fell sick and sent for his
nephew to come to his bedside. Arriving
at Charleston, he at once repaired to the
stately mansion of the sick man. and
there found his relative on a dying bed.
No time was lost In stating to his visitor
why he was sent for, and ho was then
told that he hud left his entire estate,
amounting to $02,000, to his sole heir.
At the same time he drew from under his
pillow over $1,700 In cash, besides several
gold watches and other valuables. The
old man at length died, and on examining
into his effects Mr. Police found himself
the fortunate possesor of vast amounts
of railroad and bank stocks, gold, real
estate, and a splendid mansion In the city,
of Charleston, in all amounting to the
sdovo sum. jar, rouce, alter rewarding
his uncle's faithful housekeeper to the
amount of over $2,000, made arrange
ments to return to Atlanta, where he ar
rived a much richer man then when he
left It. In looking through one trunk
Mr. Police discovered $000 in gold, which
was rather a surprise, and whldi seems
to have been overlooked lu the deed. Of
course this good fortune, if judiciously
handled, will render Mr. Police comforta
ble the remainder of his life. It Is stated
that his uncle possessed largo means In
Europe, which will go to his relatives in
that country. Mr. Police takes his new
estate with much sang frold, and appears
to De unconscious or nis gooa iuck. it
might be well to say, however, that he Is
for tho present "tuklnir a rest." tho
weather being a "little oppressive," and
he thinks his constitution needs the least

Rev. Sennas Hall Haea for a Divorce.
Very many ncnons will regret, says an
English paper, though .there are many
who will not be surprised, to learn that
the Rev. Newman Hall has been com
pelled to appear In the Divorce Court.
This estimable gentleman has been sorely
tried In his domestic life. His marriage
was rather a romantic one, and arose out
of an attachment which his wife formed
for him while he was actlntr aa her tutor.
She was a daughter of a Scotch gentle
man, well known In the religious world,
and whoso life he afterwards wrote.
Those who knew husband and wire were
astonished at tho admirable manner In
which he conducted hlmseir towards a
lady whose capricious aid uncertain tem
per seemed almost to susruest mental
rather than moral defect. Some years
asm it was said Mr. Hall bore this last In
jury patiently ; but It would seem that
some iresn wrong nau oeen committeu,
and he has now filed a rjetltlon in the Dl-
vorco.Court, alleging adultery on the part
ot his wife with a man named Richard-
son.
How to Use a Spade.
The man who can handle a spade prop
erly does not find it very hard or labori
ous to work. He first lets the snade fall
or Its own weight down to the spot where
the spadeful ft to be taken up, taking
care that tho breadth on the surface
around Is not mora than four Inches :
then he draws back the spade a little, which
tabes off much or the friction of tho de
scending blade. One good thrust of the
snade with the foot then sends the blade
down Its full depth. A backward pressure
makes a lever of the handle and heel of
the spado, and a dexterous turn of tbe
wrist sends the spadeful upside down just
where It Is wanted. There Is no raking
or "sputtering" needed to make the
ground level. A slight tap with the cor
ner of the made makes the work as reru
lor and plane as if laid off with an in
strument. Forney't Preu,
Fersemal Neatness,
With the best Intentions of personal
neatness, many persons are unable to
make the Impression of their company
wholly agreeable. They may remember
with advantage that attention to rinsing
the mouth with some fluid six times a day
is not too much pains to make themselves
acceptable to others. There Is no surer
passport to esteem than an Innocent,
cleanly, taintless person, which wins upon
one before moral virtues have time to
make their way. If you think this has
been said too often, study the personal
appearance of the well-bred people you
meet for the next month. The result
will satisfy you that those who are as neat
as white cats are as one to fifteen of the
careless, easily satisfied sort. Slight dis
orders make themselves known by the
sickly odor of the Insensible perspiration,
autte sensible to others at onoe, though
le person most Interested Is the last to
become conscious of It. The least care
permissible, even in cold weather, to
those who would make their physical
purity as sura as their moral state, Is
bathing with hot water and soap twice a
week from head to foot. Carbollo toilet
soap Is the best for common use, as It
heals and removes all tho roughness and
" breaking out " not or the gravest sort.
Ladles whose rough complexions are a
oontlnual mortification to them, have
round them entirely cleared by the use of
tnis soap. Tne sugnt unpleasant oaor ot
the arid present soon disappears after
washing, and It may be overcomo by using
a few spoonfuls or perfume In the water.

Popular Fallacy and Deceptions.
It Is an Infirmity of man to cling to tho
teachings of a putt generation, and to stub
bornly resist the light of reform and pro
greet. Health-reform and Temperance
growth arc jealously watched over by the
Poison Bitters compounders. One great
prevailing deception or the presentage, Is
tbe Impression that every human biped or
either sex must be ttitnulated, and the
poisoned chalice Is labeled "Medicated
Bitters," the better to palliate their use
and prolong tho epidemic. One or the
most zealous workers to cure this malady,
Dr. 'Joseph Walker. Inventor and Pro
prietor or the famed California Vinegar
Bitters, believes in making Bitters that
are " true medicine," and advises the sick
man to swallow a draught that will wash
out the Leprosy or his disease. In this
faith he Is steadfast, and his Vinbo ar Bit
tkrs, though a contradiction to the gen
eral character of all other Bitters, are, as
a great tueeettvaA Life Vitality evidence
