FKIDAY.... APKII.2. 1S NEW USE OF THE ELECTRIC LIGHT. New dincoverirs are constantly being mads in the possibilities of the electric light. When the electric light was introduced ia the Pal ace Hotel at San Francisco it was a noticable fact that the plants in the corridors attained a surprisingly vigorous growth. The atten tion of a cousin of Dr. C. W. Siemens of Lon don was attracted by this phenomenon, and the London journals recently have contained elaborate accounts of Dr. Siemens' experi meats. Ho is one of the leading scientists of Europe, and his opinions are entitled to great weight. The experiments made by this in rostigator to ascertain whetherplants exposed to the electric light were affected by its rays conclusively prove that it is efficacious in pro ducing their leaf green and in greatly stimulat ing their growth. After annsuncing this beau tiful discovery to the meeting of the society on the 4th inst. the discoverer placed a pot of budding tulips in the full brightness of an elec tric lamp, and in about forty minutes the buds had expanded into full bloom. Dr. Siemens experimental tests, conducted for two months, show that the ordinary vegetables which were kept entirely in the dark died; those exposed to the electric light only or to daylight only throve equally well, while those exposed to the daylight and also to the electric light successively grew rapidly and vigorously. He contends that the radiation of heat frera powerful electric arcs can be made available to correct frost and probably to pro mote the ripening of fruit in the open air. It has been generally supposed that 'plants, like animals, reqaire a certain amount of rest in the twenty-four hours, but these experiments how that, subjected to the sunlight by day and the electric light by night, they make in creased and vigorous progress. The discovery may lead to some important practical results of which its own author has as yet no hint. Where natural water power can be had at little cost and the mechanical energy necessary for working the electric light ing apparatus is less expensive it may, and no doubt will, be highly available for horticultu rists, i Who Cares to br an Indian Agent? The new Indian Commissioner is about to take charge of his office, and the probabilities are that he will discover that mine seventy odd agents who act as his lieutenants deserve re uaoval. Wiiere will he find honest men to fill the vacancies f Two-thirds of the agents get fifteen hundred dollars or less per year; the best paid men get but a half more. All must Rive bonds, and sometimes heavy ones, for the faithful performance of their duties, and there are always possible drawbacks in the way of Indian bullets and scalping knivos. What com petent and honest man can desire the position of agent unless he has a flavor, more or less pronounced, of missionary in his organization ? f good men do' not want it what satisfactory guarantee can the government exact from the kind of men who have heretofore so frequent ly disgraced the service and been responsible fcr bloody Indian wars? This problem of how to get the proper men for agents when able, honifst civilians can do better by themselves by staying at home, seems impossible of solu tion until the army officers are introduced as a factor. MISCELLANEOUS. A Goon Cocntrt' to Leave. A Toronto journal mournfully complains that on an em igrant train which left Ottawa a few days ago containing four hundred and forty seven per sona only three were bound for what is cal'e 1 the Canadian Northwest. The remaining four hundred and fifty four were all seeking new homes on the Pacific Slope. These are evi dently pretty shrewd immigrants, the very class whe are needed and are heartily welcom d in eur Western States and Territories. If immigration upon this scale should set in from the older and more thickly settled portions of Canada toward the United States it womld not take a great many years to depopulate the Do minion. The attractions offered by Califor nia and Oregon are infinitely greater than any which Manitoba can present. On the other hand, the Canadian Northwest is a wilderness, - A vast empire is marked out, bat it is all on paper, in Parliamentary reports and gevern ment advertisements. Canadian immigrants evidently believe that Canada is a good coun try to leave. Closing of tub Kindbroabtkb. By refer ence to a notice in another column it will be seen that the parents of the childreu who at tended the Kindergarten department of the public achoel of this city, have determined to hold a meeting for the purpose of devising some means by which the School Trustees may be induced to rescind their order, discon tinuing the same. The benefits of this pre liminary educational training, have been so thoroughly discussed in these columns that but little is left unsaid. It is to be hoped that some measures will be adopted by those personally interested to bring the subject be fore those who, having no children to be bene fited, are lukewarm, or wholly indifferent re garding the welfare of the rising generation. So mnoh of the future prosperity of the com munity depends upon the careful training of the young that a sordid money consideration appears unworthy ef our people Let the subject receive due attientien.

George Wilson Drake, of 'Marshall county, Kansas, was found murdered in the street in Salt, Lake. It is supposed that tramps killed him for his money. Much excitement continues throughout the Catholic world, growing out of the religious persecution of France, which are semi offi cially known to be against the Jesuits. Prince Leopold, Queen Victoria's youngest son, is, it is stated, about to travel, and there is a probability of his coming to America. He will travel modestly, having only two persons for his suite. The great bean of Florence is the Prince Pi' ero Strozzi, who devotes himself to the mar ried ladies and only exchanges petty glances with the single ones. He drives a pair of hand some gray ponies. The present electioneering camp u'gn in Eng land is described as the most exciting of the century. Both Tories and Liberals are strain ing every nerve to secure a majority in the House of Commons. White Pine seams to be coming to the front again as a mining camp in this State. The Eureka papers say that several fgrmar resi dents talk strongly of going back there in the Spring. Lot jumping, in anticipation of the Spring boom, is being carried on extensively in Hamilton. R. B.

March 17, Millie, Alexan der and Solomon Block, triplets, reached their majority. The occasion was celebrated by a reception at Eureka Hall, Cinciunati. It cre ated iuch comment, and it was stated that this was the first instance of the kind ever celebrated in America.

Quite an interesting case was decided by the Supreme Court oti Tues day, whieh involved the validity of a mort gage in the name of a non-iesident. On the May, 187G, Tyrrell & Reese of Virginia City borrowed 10,000 from James H. Latham of San Francisco, giving as security a mortgage upon the property known as the Union Iron Works. This mortgage was assigned to L. P. Drexler for one dollar by the administratrix of Latham's estate on March 21, l79,and on the 15th of the succeeding month he brought suit for foreclosure. The defense held that the mortgage had been executed in favor of Latham, a non-resident, to avoid paying the tax on mortgages. The District Court held that the mortgage was good. The Supreme Court, however, reversed the judgment of tin conrt below. It is decided that while a per sonal judgment against Tyrrell A Reese for the amount is valid, that the mortgage, being fraudulent, ia not a valid lien upon the prop erty. This in effect awards the preper'y to the Bank of California free from the mart gage, and the bank will recover from Drexler the anseunt paid by it for the property .at the Sheriffs sale; also, the $500 attorneys' fees. Drexler will have to leok to Tyrrell & Reese for the money de him. Dr. C.

The Cfironiehei last evening haa tie following center shot at Ckarlea Da Young : " The Sai Francisco Chronicle of yesterday says ; During the forenoan Loring Pickering ap peared at the noliing booth of the Seventh Preeinct of the Eighth Ward, approaching with his eat-like tread and furtive glance, and cast a straight sand-lot ticket. The ballots were, as before remarked, so distinct in hue and texture, that there could be no mistake aa to his ballot. " This illustrates the kind of results that are likely to follow from the tinted-ticket trick. If what Mr. De Young's paper says be trne, Mr. De Young was enabled by it to rob Mr. Pickering of his privilege as a citizen t vote a secret ballot for the candidates of his choice. According to the Chronicle, he voted for the losing party, and De Young will constantly keep that statement before the winning party in the hope of hurting Mr. Pickering's business. " Many workingmen may lose their em ployment and bread by reason of the satr.e device which has given De Yonng the oppor tunity to beast that he was a sneaking dogger at Mr. Pickering's heels when the latter ap proached the ballot-box."
