Some of the smaller screws are so minute that the unaided eye cannot distinguish them from steel filings or specks of dirt Under a powerful magnifying glass a perfect screw Is revealed. The slit In the bead is 2-loooths of en inch wide. It takes 808.000 of theee screw* to weigh a pound, and a pound is worth 51.885. The hairspring in a strip of the finest steel, about 9J* inches long, 1-lOOth Inch wide and 37-10,000th* of on inch thick. It Is coiled up In spiral form and finely tempered. The process of tempering these springs was long held as a secret by the few fiartunate ones possessing It, and oven now is not generally known. Their manufacture requires great skill and care. The strip is ganged to 90-l,oooths of an inch, but no measur ing Instrument has as yet keen devised capable of fine enough ganging to de termine before hand by the size of the atrip what the strength of the finished spring will bo. A 30-I,(tooths part of an Inch difference In the thickness of the stop makes a difference In the run ning of the watch of about six minutes an hour. The value of these springs, when finished and placed in watches. Is enormous in proportion to the material from which they are made. A com parison will give a good idea.

The balance gives five vibrations every second, 300 every minute, 18,000 every hour. 433,000 every day and 157,- 680,000 every year. At each vibration It revolves about one and one-fourth times, which make 107,100.000 revolutions every year. In order that wo may belter under stand the stupendous amount of labor performed by tbeso tiny works, let us make a pertinent comparison. Take, for illustration, a locomotive with 0-foot driving wheels. I.el its wheels be run until they have given the same nmnlier of revolutions that a watch docs in one year and they will have covered a distance equal to twen ty-eight complete circuits of the earth. All this a watch does without other attention than winding once every twenty-four hours.—New Moon. FASTENING FOR ~DOORS. A Possible Improvement on Knobs anil Patches for Certain lisps. Hr. 11. M. Bhaw, of Genoa, N. Y., a dentist for many years, but also a pattern-maker and a man of some me chanical ingenuity, has suggested a substitute for the ordinary knob and latch for such doors ns do not require looking. Upon the edge of (he door itself ho would place, at the proper height, merely a small metal or wooden projection. Opposite thereto, in a re cess In the jamb, ho would put a small upright lever, pivoted, as shown in our diagram, and having a notch cut in the rounded upper end. To the lower end is attached a stiff spring, whose up ward pressure tends to throw the lever to one side or the other of a perpendlo nlar, and to hold it in cither of the two slanting positions indicated by the full lines and dotted lines of the diagram. In opening and closing the doir, the projection would engage the notch in the lever. Dr. Hliaw believes that this plan would keep the door from rs.ttllng in the wind, and make it fit more snngly against the jamb-casing, thus excluding flies, ants and drafts of air. It would also Involve less carpenter work. A door thus fastened could be opened with a push, without tuning a knob or lifting a latch.—N. Y. Tribune. History of the riicrmomctcr Hero of Alexandria, who lived about 180 years before Christ, is said to have been the real inventor of the rude “weather tester" used for measuring the heat of the atmosphere, whl di was continued in use until about Uit time of the opening of the seventeenth cen tury. About the date last mentioned it was reduced to an instrument more convenient and accurate Ivy one Sane tonlo, an Italian, and was afterward* much improved by various scientists, especially by Fahrenheit, who, In 1730, added the scale and other Important details, converting the old “weather tester" into an apparatus of ranch use fulness. Vitality of Insect Kggt- The eggs of insects have greater vitality than any other life gcrips now known. After exposing silkworm eggs to ft temperature of 88 degrees below the zero of a Fahrenheit thermometer for five hours, Kpollanzl, the great en tomologist, was surprised to find that they had not been frozen in the least, and that their vitality was not in the least impaired. On another occasion he treated a dozen grasshopper eggs to a temperature of 58 degrees below zero without injuring the life germ in the slightest degree. Flic* unlike Clover.

Victoria Red* lt Immense I.enrea •ml Kibble Sml, Knppose that a century ago n traveler hint related that he saw in tropical America a water plant with leaven twelve feet, across and capable of bear ing the weight of two men,what would have been said of him? The same that was said of the old tire ok traveler and historian, Herodotus, until time and investigation had vindicated him. and the same that is still said of Sir John Mandevtlle. It should be said that the plant never attains to such sire under cultivation, ttnly in a state of nature and in its own habitation does it do that. The largest loaf ever had under cultivation was on a plant in Kew Gardens, in London, which measured seven feet two Inches across. That measurement was taken in August. It is not May yet, and you may see in the Phipps conservatory a leaf which measures four feet. If nothing happens before the year is out our conservatory will call for the lau rels. Pittsburgh will beat Ismdon with the plant which Is to keep green for ages the memory of the queen. This lily was discovered in liolivtahy llaenke in 1801, but not named until law, when John Lindlcy described It and dedicated it to Victoria. It was not brought under cultivation in Eu rope till several years after, and then through the efforts of the traveler. Spruce. It flowered in England first in November of 1810, and that first flower was presented to the queen. It was Introduced into the V.'nlted States in 1853, since which time it has grown in favor fill It is to ho found in almost every conservative from Maine to Cali fornia. Its habitat is the still waters anywhere from Venezuela to Paraguay. The waters are shallow and the soil in which it roots enriched by the deposits of uncounted time. Nothing could give one a completer idea of abundance and repose than the sight of one of these lilies in Its home, but one who lias a talent for that sort of thing mav have a passable idea of it by looking a t those hi flu* Phipps conservatory as they bask in the snn, the great leaves spread motionless on the calm water. If the weight were only distributed rightly yon might set your baby on one of those leaves, at)d without dan ger of a ducking unless he rolled over board. Hut in a well-developed leaf he need not, for it lias a rim three or four inches high. That is why the plant has sometimes been railed the water platter or water (ray. Moth these words suggest something to cut, and remind one that another name Is water maize, because the seeds are ed ible. Those Americans near the equa tor not having any energy to s|iend in raising maize, picked the seeds of the Victoria and roasted them, and possi bly boiled them, as they were like peas. The seeds attract the water fowl,which explains the fact that often in pictures of the Victoria in its native state a long-legged and long-billed bird is seen standing on one of its leaves. The present in a g<xid time to study the life of tin 1 plant, as it limy he seen in nil stages of development. It will lie amusing. and ought to he suggest- Ive, to note the similarity of the mark ing of the leaf and the skin of the young alligator which dozes in the water in the palm house. The leaf with the deep red veins seems to show some obscure relationship with the al ligator. lint it is not a relationship that will last; those square elevations between the depressed veins will dis appear shortly, as may be learned from the larger leaf near, with the smooth dark green surface. If one could get at its other side he would probably find it pink, and all the veins and stalk on that side armed with spines. These are its means of defense. It has to tight enemies in the water as other plants have to tight them on land. The flowers of the Victoria are com ing out nowand will continue at it. making a display all summer from pure white to pink and carmine and crimson, from the soft blue of the sky to deep purple, this last pre-eminently the royal color. In an adjoining room may he seen the exquisite flower of the Australian water lily, which does not attain to the magnitieeiiee of leaf which distinguishes the American plant. The Greeks, thanks to their fine taste, know how to make use of their lieautiful superstitions, ami so they 'lnd icated the water lilies to the nymphs. A nymph was an inferior divinity, in the form of a lovely maiden, eternally young, and a tutelary spirit of some lo cality or of some tribe or family. Her existence depended upon the existence of that with which she was identilied. She and her companions went in the train of higher divinities, and had the gifts of poesy and prophecy. In the. scientific nomenclature of the lilies is the name Castalia, and why not? At the foot of Mt. Parnassus, near the temple of Apollo, at Delphi, was the Castuliau fountain, sacred to Apollo aud the Muses, and in which the priestesses used to bathe before she gave voice to the oracles. Is not the poet a prophet? Of old his inspiration was from the fountain of Castalia, named in remem brance of the daughter of Aehclous, who threw herself into it to escape Apollo, whose manners to the fair ones were not the best. What a world of poetic thought and feeling opens in the presence of the water lily! What world of romance clusters about it. for the water Illy is everywhere in some of Its species or genera or triha, or what ever the word should t>e. The Alaskan lover may pluck it for the maiden at his side as they stroll around Silica, and the Paraguayan as he pants under his South American Sun.
