In lovely spots on lovely summer days, aml be(.auM of thelr dear assoda. tious? Must the scientific sense blunt the aehthetlc one? Often without doubt, and even though the botanisU may themselves demur, this will be the cast. Pistils and stamens, necta ries and receptacles these things will not always go well with artless talk about sweet blooms and bright berries, or even with the simple, 'very Eng'.isa names given by the unlearned to flow ers. But on the other hand, there are many lovers of nature and field natu rallsts whose affection for the flowers and plants is bo great and fixed that from time to time they may safely visit this new wondrous world, to present ly emerge from It as much in love as ever with the old; thry will still care for the flower because of Its beauty, because It grows In the best places at the best time of year, because it vivid ly recalls to them the glad, sorrowful days of childhood or the tender pass age of true love. Floworsindr-oj, apart altogether from the science of botany, are inextricably woven about human life. When will (he artist be tired of painting the children In the meadows with their laps full of cowslip or celandine? Let the botanist classify and name for his own purposes In his own way, but let him be careful not to do any thing to bring Into contempt the love of Mowers apart altogether from as wen as ins new. ve must always have our sweet wllllam, klngscup, sweet cicely, loosestrife, bearUose codling and cream, and feverfew, names with stories and meanings whoso loss would be a loss to the language; their very mention turns our thoughts to the garden and the pasture lands of summer gone but coming again.

In a recent Jeeture at the Royal In stitute, London, Sir Andrew Noble mentioned that in experiments with h!gh power explosives used In guns a chronoscope had been employed, which registered the velocity of the projectile at 16 successive points be fore It left the bore. It was pos sible with this apparatus to register time to the millionth of a second. In the older experiments, where the ve locity d-d not exceed 1.S0O or 1,000 feet per second, tho projectile recorded Its time by knocking down a series of steel triggers projecting into s tbe oore. xiui wun velocities or .2,500 feet and more per second, the trigger, in stead of dropping, frequently plowed a groove In the projectile, and another device was necessary.

The sound waves csuse a variation in the iuten eitv of the electromagnet, and the mag net, acting upon the wilt passing oe neath it, leaves a permanent Impres sion upon the latter. I poa reversing the action, the wire reacts on the mag net and corresponding sounds are transmitted by the telephone. In or der to obliterate the magnetic trace on the cylinder, it is only necessary to revolve it under the magnet while this is subjected to a continuous cur rent Antiquity ot Anatomical Stair.

IT ' J CHINA'S QUEER BOOKS LANGUAGE WITHOUT ALPHA BET IS CURIOUS. Til Written Language Cannot Ba Bead A 'oud Ha That a Listener Sfay Com prehenil It Eighlh "Tono" of a Chinese UDU. ' . A language without an alphabst sounds Sufficiently curious, especially when It is added that It Is a writteu language and tho medium of communi cation throughout that enormous ex panse of territory, the Chinese Em pire. Not only has the Chinese lan guage no alphabet, but it is actually true that in its purest form, though it could, literally speaking, be read aloud, the sounds would have abso lutely no significance whatever to a listener. To the reader, of course, tho written or printed page would con vey all that the author wished it to. But in order to convey its meaning, say," to a blind person, the reader would be compelled to find his own words, chosen from the spoken Chi nese language. And his "translation" would be much more roundabout than the written version. Same Idea of this singular fact may be gathered from the estimate that the fable of "The Pox and the Grapes," which can be told In 1"0 EnfrUsh words, could bs narrated In eighty-five Chinese written characters. To tell the story ln spoken Chinese would, require 10b words. Written Chinese is practically uniform throughout tho Empire, a,id has hardly altered during the entire course of Chinese history. The sick en language, on the other hand, is constantly changing, and prevails lu several dialects, some of which are quite unintelligible to Chinese from the different provinces. Put even the purest form of spoken ChiHeie is al most Incomprehensible to a foreigner, except by the most arduous study, and after years of application the Euro pean continues to make the most lud icrous blunders. The reason for this is that the Chinese tongue has but 500 to 1,000 elementary words, which form the base of their language as the al phabet does of ours. In order to spin.

The British possession of Mauriti us is at present the ground of a cam paign against everything British. The French child's copybook which gives a picture of the alleged British atro cities at Ladysmith is being vuaeu used, and this is not the only man- j stroiis publication that is beir.g is sued with the viow ot fostering hatred of things British. The newspapers, of which there are nine or ten pub lished here, are with two exceptions violently anti-British, says the Lon don Mail.- They constantly speak of the "undying hatred" of the natives for the English, and stlgmatlzj the British residents as pigs, thieves, .,.i..ar,u and almost every other objectionable thing they can imagine. lthough Mauritius has been a Brit ish possession since 1S10, it is as anti British as ever.

No wonder the Euro pean ear Jibs at the task! th ninth meaning of a Greek particle is nothing to the eighth "tone" of a Chi nese noun. Chinese has no grammar, as we know grammar. According to its position in a sentence a word is either a noun, adjective, verb, or ad verbthe word itself remains the same. In this respect Chinese is a "baby" among languages. But, like so many other things that the Celes tial ha3 invented and left as he In vented, the Chinese tongue has never grown up. And yet, with all its draw backs, the literary men of the Flow ery Land have contrived to make It serve their purpose. But almost all the classical philosophical, and histori cal works of the Chinese are written In the queer characters that only mean something to the eye, and cannot be made to mean anything to the ear. Where the Chinc-se language) written or Rpoken came from nobody know3, any more than they know where the original Chinese themselves came from. But it-is probable that the primary Chinese characters existed 5, 000 years ago pretty much aa they do today. They are written In vertical columns, which begin on the right of tho paper. The Instrument is a brush and a thick solution of Indian ink Is the medium the paper the familiar flimsy material made fr'i rice straw. Oddly enough, though tuJ'Manchus who are the ruling race in China as well as their Tartar relatives, the Mongols, speak a language related to the Chinese, they have a proper al phabet, derived Indirectly from the West. It has borrowed from tho Sy riac, which came from the Phoenician alphabet. And the Roman letters of today owe more than a litCe to the Phoenician. So the Tartar writing is at one end of the chnin that which was derived from the Aramaic, stretches to our own A B C. The Tar tars owe their alphabet to the Chris tian missionaries known as the Nts torlans. But that is another story.

A MYSTERY NO MOKE ' AND CLOUD IS LIFTED FROM INNOCENT MAN. Tuylor Harrow Who lfu4 leen 8:ifftit Far and Near for Tea Yt-urs Irately liutt'overed as a Faratytlc at Po.-tlaiKt, Orecou 8 Taylor Barrow has been found and the veil of mystery that enshrouded his disappearance ten years ago has been lifted. He lived south of Ham ilton, and with two companions on June 14, 1890, went to the Oakley races and was never heard of again, says tha Youngstown Signal. His family and friends thought that he had met with foul play, and his body had been secretly buried to hide the crime. The mysterious disappear ance filled many columns of the news papers at the time, but without avail. He could not be found. But yester day a telegram was received by his . family from Portland, Ore., stating that under the name ot Chaa. Duraont Taylor Barrow was a paralyzed inmate of the City Hospital and would die. The sufferer wished hl3 family to claim his body. When he left horns he was accompanied by Harry Pitzer and Hudson Scott, two prominent citizens living near Sharonville. On tho day of his disappearance It was shown that he drew ?2,800 out of the bank and this only made the suspicion of foul play stronger. His companions left him in the city and thought nothing more of him. On Tuesday, June 11), Mrs. Barrow cam to Sharonville and qoing to the Victor Hotel, of which hotel Scott was proprietor, inquired if he had seen her husband. Scott told her that Barrow had left them at the depot and was taken by surprise when informed that he had not returned home. A search was at once Instituted for Barrow and the news that ho was missing spread broadcast. Days passed, tho missing man was not heard from, and ugly suspicions grew apace. On J':!y 3, 1890, a man named Boyle, a former schoolmate of Barrow's, arrived in Cincinnati and stated that he had met the latter ln Chattanooga, Tenn., a few days previously, and that the missing man had assumed the name of Charles Dumont. Scott accompanied Boyle to the office of a notary and had tliis statement sworn to. Scott then visited Mr3. Barrow and her "brother, John Wli.lamson, at the farm, and displayed the sworn statement. Wil liamson stated that he believed Boyle's statement, but Mrs. Barrow scouted the Idea, and said that Scott had paid Boyle to swear falsely. Scott then went to Chattanooga, and, although he heard of Taylor Barrow, or Charles Dumont, the latter had left that city. Scott then offered $500 reward for tha discovery of the missing man, ana news came repeatedly. He was re ported seen at one time at Kansas City, Mo., later at Ft. Scott, Kan., and ln 1893 word came that he had been seen in Denver, Col. At the time of Bar row's disappearance he was the Butler county agent for W. H. Hill of Cincin nati.. Rumor had connected Barrow's try foiks wotilci nau - explanations. Taylor Barrow had in their opinion, been murdered. In the meantime Mrs. Barrow, the supposed widow, and her only son lived on the home farm near Sharonville, amply provided for by revenues aenveu uuu. property owned by the missing hus band and father, me o-j-u.u grew to a stalwart youth, but no. mes sage ever came from the missing: fa ther and the wife and bov mourned him as dead. ' A brother, John Bar rows, left the home some years ago to secure a position ns motorman on the Vine and Clifton tlectrio road, and at present lives at No. 2S33 Falke street. Corryville.. A blue-coated messenger ,oy stopped Barrow aa he was leav ing his front gate to go to work ana banded him the dispatch above re ferred to. Stopping but a moment ta gather the news It contained, John Barrow hurried to a telephone and hastily seht the contents of the mes sage to his sister-in-law at Sharon ville Then, as he paused, he thought of Hud Scott. Another turn of the crank and the telephone exchange v. as notified to call up Mason, Ohio, where scott now owns a hotel. A few brief words and the message was delivered to Scott, and he took the first tram tor Cincinnati, arriving there about noon. Mr Scott was seen at the Dcnnisoa House in company with Miles Osgood and Col. Jack Frey, and stated that he had been relieved of a load he bad been carrying since Barrow's disap pearance, ancUhat his wife and daugh ters had suffered even more than he from the dreadful circumstance. He had acquainted them of the news Im mediately after receiving It and ha sobbed as he toW of their happiness at bearing It. John Barrow was seen yesterday, and stated that he knew nothing ot fcis brother's wanderings, nothing, ln fact, more than tue nwa that the long-ml-sing man was . dJlng in the far west. He had thought that .. ... inoaturl even the news tnat ne nan uu - if it were on his deathbed, would be as sweet to Hudson Scou as to reaved wifo and son, and he had wast, ed no time In letting him know. Mr, Barrow stated that none of the fam ily would go to Portland, Ore bat in the event of his brother's death, whici the phvsiclans said was certain th body would t brought to this state tor burial.
