KEEP WARM COLD AS AN ACTI VE PROMOTER OF MORTALITY (Scientific American. Tbors Iti 'i.o bsuzU fallacy ILau' :Le opinion of many, particularly tbe young aud stroDg and vigorous, the Winter especially a sharp, frosty one, with plenty of snow ia the roost healthy season of the year. . Very fow perHong seen: to realize the faot that oold is the condition c! death, and that in both warm and cold olimates it is our own unoonsoioas effort to maintain our bodily heat at a temperature at ninety-eight degrees that wears us out. This temperature, called " Wood heat," every oubio inoh of oxy gen thai serves to vitalize our blood must be raised by our own bodily heat or lile caasts. Since in cold weather the maintenance of a sufficiently elevated, bodily temperature becomes very ofteu n difficulty too great for our strength, the advent of a severe Winter is rually more to bs dreaded than a visitation of pestilenoe. Tbe saying, " Heat ix life, colli U death," has a striking illustration and confirmation in the reports now regularly submitted by Dr. Bassull to tbe Glasgow Sanitary Committee. The death rate rises and falls with the regularity of the thermometer. Bo many degrees rea beat, so many more deaths, and vice versa. Iuoneof his fortnipbtly reports Dr. Russell says: "Tbe death rate in first week of the fortnight was twenty one, in the second twenty-five. Tbe mean temperature in the "former week was 48 8 degrees Fahrenheit, in tbe latter 39 5 degrees." He attributed the low rate of the first week to the high mean temperature of the preceding fortnight, which was 47.03 degrees and adds: "This is a good illustration of a law which we frequently observe in these reports of temperature and death rates that a week of low temperature produces arise in mortality the week following." In our olimate it would probably be difficult to find a more frequent oause of serious ailments than taking oold. What ever weak place we have, whatever con stitutional riiaorder fi be subject to, oold will surely discover. We take cold because our vitality is too low to ward off the effects of the reduoed temperature around us. As a matter of first importance, then, to resist tbe cold and various derange ments of the system consequent, it is necessary by proper nutrition to main tain our animal heat; second to retain, this beat by a sufficient quantity of cloth ing; third, to regulate witn care tbe tem perature of tbe air we breathe. Contrary to the opinion current among lovers of cold weatber, a fire in a bedroom in the Winter is oheaper and better than a Dootor's bill; for owing to our inactive condition dnring sleep, tbe circulation of the vitalizing blood is both slow and imperfeot, aud hence tbe danger of tak ing oold by breathing oold air ia greatly increased. A cold is me Beginning ot everything that is bad. It any one oon soions of having caught one feels oold chills creeping over the baok, let bim apply a mustard plaster to the bottom of toe spine and lower part of the back at once, and by so doing he may avert a dangerous illness before it is too late and medical aid can be procured. It should never be forgotten that " Heat is life cold is death. SrjlBO Tunnel. A new stock was oalled yesterday, for the first time, on the New York Stock Exobange list, under tbe name of tbe Sutro Tunnel. Quite a number of thousands of shares seemed to change hans, whether from the right hand to the left of tbe same party we don't undertake to, say. Tbe oapital stock of the company is said to be from twenty to forty mulious bo said some member of the Stock Exobange who was seeking for information on tbe suojeot. At any rate be learned that there was enough shares to go around 'or tbe present, and render a oorner in tbe stock not very probable for some time at least. The par value of the shares is ten dollars, and the prioe at which, the sales were made yesterday was abont 48? per oent.. or fi-1.75 per "bare. The Sutro . Tunnel, it will be remembered, is the great bore that has threatened so loDg to revive tbe hopes of the holders of the bonanza stocks, as tbe .increased facilities to be afforded to those companies to get out their ores are to be Kt tbe greatest valne to Consolidated Virginia, California and the bonanzas on ma same lodes.

XVII. MARK TWAIN'S PRINTING DAYS. One Compositor who worked on the News then still lives, says a writer in the St. Louis Spirit, and bas made consider able noise in tbe world. We allude to Samuel Clemens, better known as Mark Twain. He was about 21 or 22 years of age, very good looking, and most im pressed with that; fact. He wag tbe laziest mortal tbat ever "soldiered " on the book. Ia that year the Crimean war and tbe printers were raging the latter over tbe long diabolical combina tion of consouants tbat made tbe Rus sian offloers' Dames, When a steamer arrived at New York tbe telegraph would tire these infernal names over tbe wires until tbe tops of the posts were shattered to pieces. Bam Clemens nsed to say thai tbe telegraph operator never wrote (beer namcg--wben be came to a hard name hi jask' took np a pepper-box of blacu sand and shook it over the man uscript. Sam was known to dwell for 15 minutes over a Russian name, and then snatch a few z's, three &'s, and then fencing them ic with an ! he would go ahead until the first galley came around to allow bim a rest. He oooupied a stand in tbe oorner of the room wbioh had been christened Sebastopol. As we havo said, Sam was lazy. He had a peouliar manner of drawing out bis words that was irresistibly oomioal when relating a joke, and be was eter nally relating a joke or something "that reminds me of." But he was good heart ed and good naturcd and muoh liked. One hot morning in June, Sam did not make bis appearance until about nine o'clook, when he ought to have been there promptly at seven. Tbe foreman was excited and angry, and as Sam came sauutering slowly ia, fanning himself with a straw hat, Bailey said: "Ham, if you can't get here before this time of day you needn't come at all." Sam leauod upon the imposing stone with both elbows, and drawled out: " Well, John, I Ruess I won't oomeag'n; 'tis bot!" and he slowly meandered out of tbe composing room. He got a birth on the river, beoame a pilot and Mark Twain. The world knows tbe rest. He used to drop in occasionally when in port, and on one occasion he insisted on his brother Henry, who worked in the offioe, accompanying him down the river. Tbey were blown np and Henry killed; Mark with his usual luck escaped uninjured. Some doubts may exist as to the mor ality of the methods of Miss or Mrs. Mary A. Maples (as the case may be), but certainly there can be no difference of opinion respecting her ingenuity. Brother Jonathan is proverbially sharp, but Brother Jonathan bas a sister who " knows a thing or two, I reckon." One Edwurd F. Chase a few years ago made bis debut in Norwiob, Ct., as a merchant. He failed in business, but he oaptured tbe heart of the fair Mi-m Mary, and despite tbe opposition of the Manles, tree and branches, they were married. In the course of time the stern parent died, and of bis ample fortune Mary could not have a son unless she separated from ber huabaud in tbe event pf whiob proper provision was mad for her in the will. Now Edwurd and Mary were beginning to feel tbe pangs of poverty, and tbey longed for the loaves and the fishes. They made a virtue of neoessity. Suddenly Mary disoovered tbat Edward was horrible, perfectly awful, so to speak. Sbe applied to the courts of her native State for relief, and obtained a divorce from bim on tbe ground of "intolerable cruelty." Then she shook the deoree in tbe faoe of ber brotbers'and the executors of her father's will, and straightway she was placed in possession of houses and lands and bank stock and money, and the wolf ran away from her door. This fairly settled, Bhe got married again. And so did Edward. And their second courtship laated only two days, and tbeir seoona marriage was private, even as, the erst naa been. Thus it is that Mary bas the money and the man too. N. Y Graphic. Then and Now. Two years ago she graduated, and her essay was upon "tbe glorious future." " Let us strive to em ulate the example of tbe nobility of past generations, she said, "and let our aspirations direct us towards the acoom plisbment of exalted deeds, and our reward shall be in tbn true, tbe beauti ful, and the good. Yesterday she lay on the sofa reading tbe last insipid novel; sbe bad on an old dress, ber hair was uncombed, aud a hole in the heel of ber stocking added to ber picturesque ap penrnnue, wuiiq tier uiuiuvr whs uui iu the kitcben doing tbe week's washing and calling in vaiu for assistance. Noble girl. Tbe Binghamton (N. Y.) Republican, of Nov. 22d snvs: Dana Hyde, a lad aged twelve years, was found hanging dead from a rafter in the toft of a barn in Oswego village this morning. Of late Dana evinced a great dread of attending school, and had been heard to say tbat be would rather throw himself nnder a railroad train than go to aohool another day. On tbe inquest held this afternoon it was brodght out that be had been in the babit of rending dime novels and weekly story papers. An ink that oan not be erased even with acids is obtained by the following reoipe: To good gall-ink add a strong anlntion of flue, soluble Prussian blue In distilled water. This addition makes the ink, which was previously proof against alkalies, equally proof against Anids. and forms a writing-fluid whiob oan not be erased without destruction of the paper. The ink writes greenish-Diue and turns black. Pharmacist. PIOCHE. NEV., SATURDAY. DECEMBER 21. Heine and tbs Vkncs of Milo. A touching story is told of Heine's last walk in tbe boulevards, from wbioh he went home to the death in life be was doomed to undergo for many years. It was in May, 1848, a day of revolution. "Masses of people rolled along the streets of Paris, driven about by tbeir tribunes as by storms. Tbe poet half blind, hall lame, dragged himself on his stiok, tried to extricate himself from the deafning uproar and fled into the Louvre olose by. He stepped into tbe rooms of tbe palace in tbat troubled time nearly empty and found himself on tbe ground floor, in the room in which tbe anoient gods and goddesses stand. Suddenly he stood before tbe ideal of beauty, the smiling, entrancing goddessess, tbe mir aole of an unknown master, the Venus of Milo. Overoems, agitated, stricken through, almost terrified, at her aspeot, tbe stick man staggered baok till he sank into a seat, and tears hot and bitter coursed down hisoheeka. Tbebeautifnl lips of tbe goddess, which appear to breathe, smiled with her wonted smile at the unhappy victim." Heine says himself, in a letter to the father of Las Belle: "Only with pain oould I drag my self to tbe Louvre, and I was nearly ex hausted when I entered the lofty hall where tbe blessed goddess of beauty, our dear lady of Milo, stands on her pedestal. At her feet I lay a long time, and I wept bo passionately that a stone must have bad oompaBsion on me. Therefore, the goddess looked down pityingly upon me, yet at the same time inoonsolably, as though she would say, 'See you not tbat I have no arms, and tbat, therefore, I oan give you no help?' "From the Western. Tbe Abyssinians out the whole of the flesh off the bones of the elephant into thongs, like the reins of a bridle, and bang these like festoons upon brandies of trees till they become perfectly dry, without salt, and then then tbey lay them up for tbeir provisions in the sea son of tbe rains.
