An eminent Italian scientist, who is an acknowledged authority on malaria and its causes, tells us that no matter how saturated with moisture soil iday be, it is not of necessity unhealthy, The malarial microbe is not a produc tion of the soil, neither is it the cause effect of decaying vegetable matter. It is an independent organism, and has as much an individual growth and de velopment as sheep and cattle. It must be present in the soil in order to bring about those conditions known as ma larial. It is an established fact that this microbe exists, as it has been culti ▼ated and carefully observed. For its perfect growth and increase, a temper ature of about sixty-eight degrees Fahrenheit is necessary, and there must be a certain amount of humidity in the soil as well as free atmospheric action. Perfectly dry soil, or even that which is only slightly damp, will not present a favorable breediqg-ground for malarial germs, and they either perish altogether or remain dormant until moisture puts the earth into more favorable conditions. The favorite and predisposing situations for malaria, then, aro low places where there is stagnant water. The colony once well established, the broiling sun of sum mer and the continuous and steamy moisture cause these small but mighty ! creatures to multiply with amazing ra- j pidity, and the atmosphere becomes literally charged with them. To re main in these localities is to inhale and absorb them by the million. There is one saving possibility in the situation, and that is the cultivation and drain age of the soil. Malaria will not flour ish on a thick sod, therefore a liberal sowing of grass and a reasonably thor ough system of drainways and ditches are the safest remedies for this evil. Tree-planting is useless; even the euca lyptus has no preventive or counterac tive quality whatever. To sum up the whole case, a good hay crop is the best auti-malarial agent that can be applied to low ground; for where grass roots form a thick mat, there is little or no atmospheric action on the soil, and, consequently, no microbes of this much-dreaded sort.

They were not numer ousdc ln good condition when he was aentenoed and as they rapidly became worse he applied to the governor of the prison for a new set. He was told that the government did not supply prisoners with artificial teeth and at the first opportunity he wrote to the banking firm in question, offering, if they would send him set, to give them some valuable infor mation. Thereupon the bankers, thinking the offer might be a genuine one, sent the governor of the prison a check for five pounds and asked him to provide the oonvict with a set of artificial teeth, In due course the convict kept his promise and sent the bankers certain information, by means of wliioh they ! were enabled to recover no less than j one thousand five hundred pounds of which they had been defrauded.

It has been named the Idiurus Zcnkeri by the Ber lin museum of natural history, in honor of the discoverer, and iu English would probably best be described flying mouse. While somewhat aembiing a bat, it certainly belongs to an entirely different species. The animal is the size of a mouse, its fur ia heavy, gray and soft, and it has a wing membrane extending from the neck all around the body. This mem brane ia covered with fine hair, lying closely against it. Two peculiarly shaped bones, extending out from be hind the forward extremities, lend ad ditional support to the membrane, which is strong enough to support the flying mouse in short downward flut tering. The membrane acts more like a parachute than a wing, and the animal is unable to raise itself from the ground by means of its flying apparatus, j A curiously developed tail, longer than ! the animal itself, gives it a peculiar aspect. This tail is covered by tiny homy scales, between which long, wimper-like hairs are growing out, and it ends in a brush. Little is known about the mode of life of the idiurus, but it feeds mostly on vegetable met as a re ter. The "Born-Tired" Man. Th« fellow who was born very tired grew more and more weary as he went through the haps and mishaps of child hood, the adolescence of youth and the early period of manhood. At middle age he was the tiredest man then liv ing. At fifty he was so utterly worn out with the simple process of existing there was a good prospect of his reach ing the allotted threesoore and ten years of average mankind. Well, the tired citizen figured it out on the basis of eighteen breaths a minute, 1,080 to the hour, 25,920 to the day, 9,402,280 for a year and 189,842,800 for twenty years.
