Physicians have known for centuries ^toTÏÏÎÎS^ bUt ago—that any ontfof the^profwrion^hod the daring to make an incision into the abdominal cavity and remove this rank offender against the laws of health. The attack on the vermiform appendix is but five years old. but it is being pros ecuted with remarkable vigor in New York city, where it originated, ami the reason is not fur to seek. It is simply be cause physicians feel sure that they have evidence that appendicitis, as disease of the vermiform appendix isnamed. causes more deaths every year than consump The appendix vermiformis in normal condition is about the size of a lead pen cU and about (1 inches long. It is very well shown in a specimen which was re moved at a clinical lecture at the Boat graduate Medical school on Jan. 18. This appendix had ulcerated and in creased in size somewhat, but gave a very fair idea of tho part. When perfectly normal, it so compares with an ordinary lend pencil that it is most frequently de scribed as like it. THE VERMIFORM APPENDIX CAUSES SERIOUS TROUBLE. Science Advance« tu Hie Itcmcue and Shows • ho Only Way to Kafcty—A riulllilllty That the Coming Man Will Be Without That Bangeroue Organ. It is a pencil that writes only deatli warrants. Even today very few physicians out side of New York city have any accurate knowledge of appendicitis or would un dertake an operation for tho removal of the appendix. So entirely is the discov ery of the disease and the pnper method of treating it an American development of knowledge and practice that among scientists of other countries today ap pendicitis is known as "tho American disease." Since tho recent discoveries removals of the cause of all tho trouble have been very frequent. One general practitioner has bad 48 such cases within Speaking in the light of recent re search, it seems safe to say that appen dicitis is far more prevalent than con sumption, and in just that proportion causes more deaths, the chief difference being that tho cause or seat of appendici tis may be removed bodily with success in most cases, and success means rester ai ion to pet ,'ect health. Tlie removal of the vermiform appen dix in the ev riy stages of an attack of appendicitis i; now held to be one of the safest of sut ,ical operations, while sucli an operation, when the case has come to near its last and fatal stage, is one of the most desperate. The sad case of Senator Hagan is one in point. Ho had long de sired an operation, but it had been de layed until too late for an assured suc cess. a year. And now, after all these facts are re cited. recurs the question of whether tho coming man will have a vermiform ap pendix. It is not meant by this to in quire whether the coming man will have his appendix slain lest it slay him. A much wider question is indicated. Tho number of appendixes removed in this city since the discovery that such an oj> eralion could be safely performed is very great, nil tilings considered. One gen eral practitioner, not a surgical special ist, told the representative of Tho World that ho had removed 100 apjiendixes iu two years. Possibly 1,000 apiiendixes hu\ e been removed since tho first opera tion of this sort in 1888, and most of these in tho past three years. What follows? If such a rate is to bo maintained, there will soon be a very large proportion of the people of New York city who have eliminated their vermiform apiiendixes, and we are glad of it. Will the children of these people be likewise possessed of vermiform appen dixes? Undoubtedly. But should the eliminating process be continued for a few generations, how long would it be before this useless and dangerous, de generate and rudimentary portion of the body is permanently bred out of exist ence?—New York World. A Clock That Itcgliiter« the Tide. The chamber of commerce of Rouen bus erected a clock tower which gives the time on three sides and the height of the tide on the fourth, namely, that front ing the harbor. Tlie tide indicator con sists essentially of a float, which, by means of a cord and counter weight huag on a drum, actuates a series of shafts with bevel wheel gearing and moves a hand or pointer on a dial Uke that of a clo-k, marked with the necessary figures to show the level of the tide. The dials are of ojwil glass and are illuminated at night.

The game of tho world is decreasing, and as new lands are opened to civiliza tion so it will get less and less. In the struggle for existence, there will be no room for the sportsman. His require ments will grow more modest as time advances, but they will not lie satisfied. The last British wolf was killed in Suth erlandshire about tho year 1700 by a man named Poison. Who will be handed down to posterity as the slayer of the last British rabbit? What a pathetic picture might be drawn of the last cock pheas ant! Perhaps some Macaulay of the far distant future may astonish his readers by his account of what went on in the rural districts of Great Britain in tho nineteenth century. He would relate how, owing to the scantiness of the population, men used to shoot partridges and pheasants by the thousand on ground then and for gener ations past the sites of immense towns; telling how the great garden of England, then mapped out into small tenements, each laboriously and minutely culti vated, with no waste of wood or hedge row, used in those far away years to be furiously ridden over by hundreds of horsemen in pursuit of an animal long since extinct in the land and only known to tile curions in old books of natural history.—Macmillan's Magazine. French Servant« and Wealthy Shopkeeper*. The one extravagance of dross of the French servant girl lies in having her best gown made by a dressmaker instead of making it herself. Hence her corsages always fit her well, and her plain stuff costume has a degree of stylo about ft which she is fully capable of appreciat ing. The ladies of tho so called bour geois set—the wives and daughters of rich shopkeepers and manufacturers— very rarely indulge in rich fashionable toilets. Mine, Boucicaut, the foundress of the Bon Marche, was worth millions upon millions. Always arrayed in block silk or satin of excellent quality, but made in tho plainest possible style, she looked to the last hour of her life just what she was—the greatest and richest shopkeeper in Paris possibly, but still a shopkeeper, and one that never tried to look like anything different. When the daughter of one of these wealthy trades people marries, her trousseau is usually very superb, but tho famous masters of the art of dress are seldom or never called upon to exert their inventive tal ents in her behalf.—Lucy Harper in Home Journal. lluw Air Ke*l»t» a Locomotive. Experiments made by the scientists ap|K)inted for that purpose by the French government show that the resistance of the atmosphere to tho motion of a high speed train often amounts to half the to tal resistance which the locomotive must overcome. Two engines, of which the resistance was measured repeatedly and found to be 19 pounds per ton at 37 miles per hour, were coupled together and again tried. In the second trial the re sistance fell to 14 pounds per ton, the second engine being shielded from at mospheric resistance by the first.

This madeitpos 9lblu for tllu fisherman to see deep down '«to the water and difficult for fish to SKILLFUL INDIANS OF THE NORTH | HAVE QUEER METHODi 1 «Decoy "Yon have heard of shooting game by I . . ... » I means of decoy birds often enough no doubt," said an old sportman the other lay, "but I doubt if you ever heard of HI ' they Cut a Hole In the Ice, Build a Hot Over the Hole und Let Bov. — Fooling Innocent Créa i*I. the I turn* of the O^ep l.akei. Thi see him in his dark hut. The fisherman has a chair or bench to sit upon, food and drink to keep life in him daring his long watch and a little stove to prevent chill. Now comes tho decoy business. "The half breed takes out of his kit a queer looking stick, painted and shaped roughly to look like a fish, he avers, though it would hardly be breaking the second commandment to worship it, for it is the likeness of nothing in the heav ens above, or on the earth beneath, on in tho water under the earth: but if the fish think it is the wain object is accom plished. This wooden counterfeit of a fish is loaded with lead, so that it sinks and lies in the water the right way when suspended from the middle of the back by a string attached to a short fishing pole. The Indian lets this decoy down into tho water and by means of the string gives it a series of short, sharp jerks, which make it a dart hither and thither in a remarkably lifelike manner, al though. of course, its range is exceeding ly limited, about a yard in any direction. "The thing is provided with tin fins ami tail and is weighted with lead most heavily at the head. The string is at tached nearer the head than the tail, upon the back, and the skill with which these fishermen make the queer thing shoot about in a triangle under their feet, through a hole iu the ice, is truly remarkable. 1 did not succeed in quiring the art myself. I should say from trying it that it is rallier more dif ficult to learn than fly casting. "Presently a few fish, noticing this decoy darting about as if in active pur suit of his food, swim that way to see if there is not something there for them also. They may be fresh water herring, salmon, trout, whitefish or less valuable game; but none of them, big or little, is refused by tho half breed. Fine fish he sells; the coarse ones he or his dogs or his children or his squaw eat readily. "Pulling up his decoy, the fisherman lets d*iwn, a baited hook and tries his luck on tlie newcomers, seldom in vain. These men fish with all sorts of bait. liv queer 1 saw one man make a splendid haul one day, using for bait only a big white bone button without any hook. The fish swallowed it greedily, and he would jerk them out of tho water before they could get it out of their throats. By and by a pike or dogfish, seeing the shoal of fish around the pole, darts after them. They scatter in a hurry, and the fisherman lets down his decoy again to attract the pike. "Now all the skill at his command must be employed to make the decoy work well, for if it lags in the water long enough for the pike to suspect its genuineness he will turn away in dis gust. If the decoy deceives the wily pike he dashes at it, and the fisherman jerks it away before the pike can grab it in his strong jaws. The pike turns to pursue, and as he halts to turn the fisher man drives at him with a long forked spear. If his aim is accurate, tho pike is transfixed and is brought bleeding to the surface in a jiffy. "These men are skilled hunters and know many curious habits of the crea tures they pursue. They say that musk rats, for instance, are able to swim long distances under the ice in this manner: Taking a long breath, the muskrat dives from his pursuer and swims as far as he cun. When ho can go no longer without a fresh breath, he comes up under the ice, and pressing his nose against it breathes out all the air in his lungs. This forms a big bubble under the ice, and the Indians say t hat the ice has the power of making that bubble of air fresh again, oxygenizes it in fact, and that the little fellow then breathes it iu again and dives once more. This he can do half a dozen times, the Indians say, before the air he took with him becomes so foal that the ice cannot freshen it again. "Whether this property of the ice is true or not I cannot say. but the Indians firmly believe it, and I know that musk ïats can travel a long way under the ice, and I have seen them come up under the Ice, press their noses to it awhile and then dive again. Perhaps some scientist might explain the case."—New York Tribune.
