The historical works relating to the
American Civil War already exceed 6000 volumes. Efforts are being made in the courts to have e' 'ctricity considered as a manufac tured article. The cattle industry of the United States represents the immense capital of 61,200,000,000. A shoemaker named John Ryan, of Joliet, 111., has won the international prize of SSOO offered by a boot and shoe journal of Boston for the best essay on boot and shoemaking in all its branches. Every State in the Union contested for the prize, also Canada, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia. An official inspection of Russian prisons has revealed a sad state of overcrowding. In one prison in the Caucasus designed to accommodate eighty prisoners no less 300 are huddled. It is said that the chief cause of the annual increase of con victions is the widespread drunkenness which now obtains in the village com munes, and is demoralizing and impover ishing the peasantry. The noted Philadelphia street-car syn dicate, which now owns many street car lines in Chicago and other cities, has just purchased the Citizens' and People's lines of Baltimore, and has its agents out through the country looking for fresh in vestments in the same line. The Phila delphia syndicate is composed for the most part of retired politicians. The Traction Company, as it is known, con trols 150 miles of street railway in Phila delphia alone. Electric lighting has had a marvellous growth in this country. President Dun can's address to the recent National Elec- j trie Light Association contained the state ment that one year ago there were 4000 plants in the United States; these now number nearly 6000. One year ago there were 175,000 arc lamps in use; there are now 219,D24. One year ago there were 1,750,000 incandescent lamps in use; at the present time there are over 2,500,000 —forty-nine per cent, increase. Says the Atlanta Constitution: "There are many queer devices for inducing sleep. Manj' believe that wo should always lie down with our heads pointing due north. Some use a hop pillow. Another way is for a man to breathe through his nos trils, and imagine that he sees every breath. This is very like hypnotism. The sensible way is to have regular tem perate habits and not excite the brain. Great soldiers like Napoleon, and Wel lington put themselves to sleep merely by exercising their will power. They could sleep at all times and under all circum stances, and wake up when they pleased." The New York Sun says: A new era in the South's iron and steel history is marked by the organization of English companies, composed of the leadiug Lron ami steel makers of Great Britain, to build extensive steel and iron works, in cluding four furnaces, a steel rail-mill, rolling mill, etc., at a new town at Cum berland Gap, on the dividing line be tween Tennessee and Kentucky. The name of the town is to be Middlesbor ougli, Ky., and for over a year the work of buying mineral lands, preparing rail road connections, etc., has been vigor ously pushed by the American Associa tion (limited), which is the name of the parent company. Over 84,000,000 in cash have already been paid out, and up ward of 60,000 acres of mineral lands purchased and over 87,000,000 more have been pledged for new enterprises. The interesting fact appears to be now well established that petroleum-produc ing strata do not always belong to the same geological period. Thus, in Ken tucky and Tennessee, the petroleum is furnished by the lower Silurian stratum, that is, by the most aueient stratified rocks; in Upper Canada it is found in the lower Devonian, and in Pennsylvania in the upper Devonian. The springs of western Virginia flow from the upper car boniferous strata; in Connecticut, and North Carolina coal oil is found in the trias; in Colorado and Utah in the lignites of the cretaceous formation,while the oil-producing regions of California belong to the tertiary period. It is stated as a remarkable fact that most of the deposits of the ancient world exist in comparatively recent tertiary formations, as, for instance, those of the oil-impreg nat'.'d sands of Alsace, of the south of France, and of Abruzzia and Emilia, in Italy. There are numerous deposits in Galicia and the Danubian provinces sim ilarly placed, while the strata that con tain those of the Crimen, the Caucasus, and the island of Tainan are of nearly the same geological epoch. Another fact stated is that the oils coining from the greatest depth prove to be of the best quality, those produced from nearer the surface of (he earth seeming to have lost »ouie of their volatile elements. j TRAINING ANIMALS. THE ART OF TEACHING DUMB BRUTES FOB THE ARENA. The Zebra Hardest to Train— Hojjs arc Highly Intelligent. Animals Vary in Dispo sition as Well as Men. Charley White, the veteran animal trainer, entered the lion's cage at the tender age of fifteen and handled the king of beasts ;is he would a tame kitten. For forty-five years, says David Wechsler in the Brooklyn Citizen, he has done nothing else but train animals for the arena. His right shoulder is shrunk on account of an attempt by a big African lion to make an early bieakfast off him. He has a theory that any animal can be trained if more or less time is expended in the work. "Some animals are ruled by fear and others by affection. "I once trained a laughing hyena, but it was a dangerous undertaking. The repertoire of these beasts is necessarily limited and the result is not worth the trouble it gives. But of all contrary and thick headed animals, the zebra takes the provender. "The mule is wise and docile com pared to the zebra. I can teach a mule and obtain a perfect mastery over it, but the zebra has an indomitable spirit that is in open revolt all the time. It would re quire the assistance of a strong derrick to get one of these black striped quad rupeds to do one half the tricks of a horse. Beside it is lazier than the mule, and capricious as the wind. They are not intelligent enough to be taught many tricks, and their stubborn tits makes thein too uncertain for every-day per formances. A mule has a very good memory, but a zebra is incapable of re membering anything. The horse is the most intelligent of all animals of the equine breed, yet it takes from six to eight mouths to teach one thoroughly in what we cull the high school of Spanish trotters. Some horses are naturally more intelligent than others, and on that their progress depends more or less. It is often difficult to train a horse to perform with an animal of a different species. A little pony and a baby elephant are often taught to perform together, but no one lias ever seen a grown horse and a large elephant trained to do tricks together. I have been training a horse and elephant together for many months and intend to bring them out next season. One of the most difficult things for me to get the the horse to do is to lie down and let the elephant walk over him. The elephant does not mind it, but the horse is frightened and has no confidence in the mastodon. It will take months of con stant. practice to make the horse feel secure whenever the elephant walks over hiin. "Nearly every species of the animal creation has been tried by experienced trainers and educated as much as possible in the art of doing tricks. In Germany especially, there are men who devote their lives to teaching and experimenting with animals. The big gorilla monkey, sup posed to be Darwin's missing link, al though ferocious and uncertain in temper, has been taught to perform. There are some animals, and amphibians, that are never taught, such as the giraffe, the hip popotamus and others that are too un gainly and awkard in their movements. The antelope and chamois have been cap tured and put through a curriculum of study that would educate a dozen horses or elephants without having any effect upon them whatever. It is the absence of intelligence and not stubbornness that makes it almost impossible to train them. There are few training schools for ani mals in America, the very place where they ought to be taught." "Is there any secret in the art of train ing animals?" "None whatever. Every trainer has his method and a natural apitude for handling animals. Perseverance and pa tience can accomplish raore in training dumb creatures than anything else. Hogs are very intelligent compared to other animals, but,dear me! it requires patience to train them. There are certain cues by which they are taught. These cues are a series of motions on the part of the trainer which can be understood. I remember that when I iirst saw a hog pick out cards, and work sums in arithmetic by selecting the answer on a card, I was astonished. Very soon I saw that the hog was guided in everything it did by its master's move ments. Now the hog has become an acrobat, jumps hurdles, rides and tumbles in the most approved style. The steer is not so easy to teach. I have two Devons now that are highly educated, but it took me months to do it. Their memories are defective. Once I taught a fine steer to go over a ladder one way and come back another. For two hours one day 1 tried to get him to do the ladder act, but it was impossible. I did everything. I not. pulleys and hoisted him over, but it did 110 good; the bovinc's mind could not grasp the situa tion, and I failed. Then 1 gave it up, sat down 011 the ring curbstone and gazed in despair upon the stupid steer. All at once, like a flash, he mounted the stairs, went over and came back. At present 1 am waltzing daily in the ring with a beai and a performing goat. The bear is 11 nervous animal and cannot be tampered with too much. They have intelligence to know their master and to remembel the tricks they have to do. Bruin is not to be trusted, though, any more than a monkey, and for that reason I havo to keep a chain about his neck while he is performing. The cerebral action of a monkey is as quick as that of a man, and a bear, I think, comes next." "Do you think any animal can be trained if properly handled?" "No. There are some dogs and horses that can never be taught anything. Some men can learn easily, while others are ut terly stupid, and so it is with animals. 1 have had fine looking lions and tigen that could not be taught a single trick. They could not learn, for it was not it them. Then 1 have selected a scrawny, watery-eyed, fierce-looking lion ano taught him without any trouble. I have long held that no species of animal is harder to teach than another. "Now the goat is obstreperous and seemingly hard to train, but constant practice will make him a line performer. Goats have excellent ideas of how to do a thing when once taught. Often they attempt to shirk their tricks by pretend ing to forget, and I dare say they do fre quently forget. But where the trick is performed with the trainer a well edu cated goat will seldom forget his part. For instance, the moment I stoop over, as if I were getting ready for some one to jump leap frog fashion over me the goat knows that he has to jump on my back, and he does not hesitate. Then when I begin to stand up the animal knows that he is required to climb upon my head, and in a twinkling his are planted securely on the top of my cranium. When I begin to lower my head that is a signal for him to leap to the tloor. You might say that all train ing is objective, that is, not so much a process of reasoning on the part of the animal, but merely a mechanical obe dience guided by the intelligence of sight." New Jersey's Prehistoric Freaks. The annual pilgrimage of George 11. Cook, of New Brunswick, N. J., State Geologist of New Jersey, through the rocky regions of that State, has resulted this year in the discovery of many valua ble fossil specimens in large deposits of sandstone. Footprints of an extinct species of beast and bird have been dis covered embedded in the stone, which Geologist Cook says was once as soft as clay. The red sandstone area has been found to extend over u vast section of the State and the stone is very valuable. After boring in several places the geo logist estimated the sandstone deposit to be fully 13,500 feet thick. He bored 2135 feet without passing through the stone. The clear and distinct traces of animal life were found in the deposit. Impressions of leaves and perfect fishes were very plentiful, and limbs of small trees had become a part of the deposit. A rare find was the small branch of a tree with three perfect sprouts and one whole leaf. Near a quarry at Belleville two skele tons of an animal greatly resembling the horneil toad were found. Slate deposits run nearer the surface and above the sand, stone west of Morristown, and from its appearance there must have been an oily vegetation in its vicinity in past ages, as the slate cuts like half baked clay and leaves an oily stain upon the hand. Fine specimens of flagging have been taken from the sandstone near Milford. On one specimen, distinctly outlined, are the footprints of a reptile. The stone is reddish brown and as hard as blue curb stone. Along the Washington Valley and near the banks of the Rockaway River, at Roonton, petrified fishes have been found. These rare fossil specimens will soon be added to the valuable collections at Geo logical Hall, New Brunswick, where there is a stone, found near Freehold, on which is the impress of prehistoric man's foot. —Nexn York Herald. A Quivering Tree. In trout of Macedonia Church, in Col umbia County, (Ja., is a quivering tree. Years ago, tlie negroes of the neighbor hood say, a murder was done under its branches. Two nun had accompanied a woman to church, and after she had en tered the edifice they quarreled about her, and oue cut the other to death. The murderer escaped, and ever since every limb, large and small, on the tree trem bles as if in fear, or as 11 suffering ani mal would quiver. This occurs when not a breath of air is stirring. No negro in Columbia County can be induced to pass the so-called haunted spot alone at night. Prominent gentlemen say they have noticed the phenomenon, but no explanation of it has ever beeu volun teered . Ohicinjv Herald. Thirteen railroads concentrate at Chat tanooga, Teuu.

The first submarine cable manufactory was started in Italy two years ago; now it has an output of 10,000 metres per day. An increase in phosphorus in iron has been found to decrease its conductivity, and the same peculiarity has been no ticed with manganese. The shortest time occupied by the tor nado cloud in passing a given point varies from "an instant" to about twen ty minutes, the average being seventy four seconds. During the last ten years an oculist of Cronstadt is said to have treated thirty cases of photo-electric ophthalmia, a new disease due to the action of the electric light on the eyes. Two traveling platforms of ten tons capacity moved by electricity and mounted on girders are used to carry vis itors around the machinery hall of the Paris Exposition. An English clubman wagered $25 that he could stand for thirty minutes without moving a muscle outside of those required for respiration. At the end of twenty two minutes he fell over in a fit. The boring for oil in the United States is not always successful—for instance, a boring at Southbury, Conn., has lately been abandoned after 200 feet had been explored and SIO,OOO lost in the under taking. A fragment of a meteor which recently fell in Chicago, was analyzed and found to contain 73 per cent, of iron, 21 of nickel, 2 of manganese and small quanti ties of aluminium, cobalt, tin, copper, arsenic, etc. Coal dust triturated into dust as fine as flour lias just been tested as a fuel for iron-making at the Morehead Mill, Sharpsburg, and found to accomplish as much in one hour as the gas furnace does in an hour and a quarter.

An official report gives the number of British boiler explosions for the year end ing with last June as sixty-one, with a loss of thirty-one lives. More than half of the explosions were due to the use of worn out boilers, seventeen to defective designs and fittings or undue working pressure, seven to ignorance or neglect of attendants, and six to miscellaneous causes. Mushrooms are but tender toad-stools grown where the soil is very much of vegetable substance. All such objects are but the cells of plants in the soil given a discharge from the ground by a force jf electricity which the earth discharges wherever plants or corals are grown. A form is sjiven the object by a part of the substance being spilled over the top of a stalk and contracted by the dryer con dition of the atmosphere. The seams in the top are but a consequence of the shrinking of the substance. K Pound of Lead Outweighs a Pound of Feathers. A scientific paper recently offered a re ward for the most correct answers to cer tain scientific problems. Among others was the old scientific "conumdrum Which weighs the most, a pound of feathers or a pound of lead? Of course, a pound is a pound, no matter of what substance,and when the simple or thought less person answers that a pound of lead is the heaviest, everybody laughs. Charles Pitt, in answering this question, claims that the pound of lead would weigh the heaviest because the feathers would be buoyed up by a weight equal to the amount of air which they displace—just as cork is buoyed up in water. In future, therefore, we must refrain from aughing at the fool's answer, as practi cally it is correct. Of course, if weighed in a vacuum a pound of any two sub stance would weigh alike. A Walking-Cane of Rhinoceros Skin. One of the most curious among all the curious presents which the Emperor of Germany hus recently received as pro ducts of his African possessions is a trans parent walking-stick made of rhinoceros skin. It appears that "Reichscommis saer llauptmann Wissman" sent a large piece of skin over to a friend at Hamburg, who gave it into the hands of a clever turn er to be made into walking-sticks. By means of some novel process the turner has rendered the skin transparent and is a beautiful amber color, which has been rlnne before, but never without changing color in a very short time, while in the present case the yellow is steady and un changing.—Jftte Y»rk Tribune. The blood in the human body counts up a record of lt!8 miles a day or 61,320 miles per year. A Colossal Flower. In the farthest southeastern island of of the Philippine group, Mindinao, upon one of its mountains, Parag, in the neighborhood of the highest peak on the island, the volcano, Apo, a party of bot anical and geographical explorers found recently at the height of 2500 feet above the sea level, a colossal flower. The discoverer, Dr. Alexander Schaden berg, could scarcely believe his eyes when he saw, amid the low growing bushes, the immense buds of this flower, like gi gantic brown cabbage heads. But he was still more astonished when he found a specimen in full bloom, a tive-petaled flower nearly a yard in diameter—as large as a carriage wheel, in fact. The enor mous blossom was borne on a sort of vine creeping on the ground. It was known by the natives who accompanied Dr. Schadenberg, who called it bo-o. The party had no scale by which the weight of the flower could be assertained, but they improvised a swinging scale using their boxes and specimens as weights. Weighing these when op portunity served, it was found that a single flower weighed over twenty-two pounds. It was impossible to transport the fresh flower, so the travelers photographed it and dried a number of its leaves by the heat of a fire. Dr. Schadenberg then sent the photographs and dried speci mens to the Royal Botanical Gardens at Breslau, where the learned director im mediately recognized it as a specimen of the Rafflesia, a plant formerly discovered in Sumatra, and named after the English Governor, Sir Stafford Raffles. The new flowsr was accordingly named Rafflesia Schadenbergia. The five petals of this immense flower are oval and creamy white, and grow around a center filled with countless violet-hued stamens, thicker and longer in the female, or fer tile flower, than in the infertile. The Rafflesias are stemless plauts, the flowers springing immediately from the surface of the branchy, and are immersed among the scales which represent leaves. Even this mass is a parasitical plant.— Prairie Farmer. Long Life With a Broken Neck. The unfortunate Mr. Hill in this city, is not the first man who has lived with a broken neck. In a certain North Caro lina district before the war it was the practice to send to Congress the man who could lift the heaviest weight. When the champion got the seat he held it until he was literally lifted out of it by a more muscular man. One gentleman won it by lifting two barrels of turpentine, but after holding it several terms he was chal lenged to contest it with an opponent, who undertook to lift three barrels of turpentine at once. He did it, lifting one barrel with each hand and a third on his head, but the effort broke his neck, or rather crushed the cervical vertebra;. The accident did not kill him, and he was elected to Congress and served many terms, using an artificial support for his head. Of course the spinal cord was not injured or he would have been paralyzed. —San Francisco Alta. "Maine is now a greater spruce than pine tree State with regard to the pro duction and sale of lumber.
