Some Portions of the Human Anatomy
Last Only a Few Weeks?The
Wonderful Replenishment.
Of course every one knows that the
human body is wholly changed every

i i teach that much?but it will surprise
some to learn that certain portions of
the anatomy undergo more frequent
changes, says the Chicago Chronicle.
It takes but four weeks to completely
.renew the human epidermis. You
have new eye-lashes every five
months, you shed your finger nails in
about the same time, and the nails
. of; your toes are renewed annually.
V:,.X \3*J?o. white of the eye, known as the
.cornea, is in a continual state of ro,
newal, being kept clear and clean by
..the soft friction of the eyelids. These
are a few manifestations of the re"
storative powers retained by man. who
.is less fortunate than the lower ani-mals.
V' Crabs can grow fresh limits, the
snail can renew even a large portion
of its head, with eyes and feelers,
lizards do not worry about the loss of
, - a tan, ana u you ma kg a cut in ine
g&f - caudal appendage o? some of these last
mentioned creatures they -will grow
another tail straightway and rejoice
llllllj-y m the possession of two.
But man still possesses the won&
" derful restorative little ceils which
scientific men call leucocytes. They
are always coursing through the body
to renew and defend the body from
P its enemies, the harmful bacteria of
j> i various maladies. These cells gene"
. ' rate antitoxins to kill our enemies.
S;v They do battle for ' us in hundreds
pS* # " of ways, and yet the majority of us
s3- ^ i. know nothing of these, great services
rendered by our tiny friends inside.

WHEELING, June 17.?After being
missed for more than six hours
and afrer there had been a general
alarm raised little Miss Horner, the
fi-year-old grand daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. J. M. Horner, who live in the
rear of the Island Christian church
on Zane street, was found in Bridge[port.
It was about 12:30 on Thursday
morning that she was found and
restored to her grandparents, with
whom she makes her home.
The little tot went to school at the
usual time Wednesday afternoon and
it appears that when school was dismissed
that she wandered over the
Island and then to Bridgeport. It
was at supper time that the grandparents
became alarmed and when
darkness came 0:1 they notified the
police and instituted a general search
for her.
Almost ail of the neighborhood
was on the hunt for the missing tot.
Many police were detailed to the
search and shortly before the finding
of the little girl in the crowds at
Bridgeport the friends had given up
in despair. She was wandering about
through the crowds at the carnival.
She was picked up by the police anil
said that she tvas lost and could not
find her way home.
The German Element.
Harper's Weekly.]
A German writer says that in 1790
Gorman blood ran in the veins of
about one-fifth of the population of
the United States. In 1S30 the
Anglo-Saxon-Puritan element numbered
2.904,717; the German ele- i
ment, 2,095,107; and the American
population, in which the several .
European strains had already become
so. thoroughly blended as to be
no longer easily distinguishable, 4852,717.
At the century's end he finds in
the United States 25,477,583 Ger
mans, as compared with 12,713,030
descendants* of the "American" inhabitants
in 1830, and 12,118,040 An- t
glo-Saxons. The Teutonie element .
ijiiixis, otuiiujaviaaa, IJUICJI, aau
Belgians) is given as 43 per cent, of
the total white population; but very
little reflection upon the foregoing
figures will be required to convince
our readers that in the course of a
century a large part of the German
element?which was important even
at first, and has been increasing so 1
rapidly that it now holds the first po- *
sition numerically, and is indeed
twice as strong as the Anglo-Saxon
in that sense?must have become by
intermarriage ' thoroughly amalgamated
with the descendants of British
colonists and the Nineteenth-century
immigrants from Great Britain.
It is a fair presumption that the influence
of German blood?the in- ,
heritants of "the best of the German
nationality"?may be traced in the
more or less useful careers of very ,
many of the prominent Americans .
whose names give no uncertain in- (
dication of their German origin, or
of German blood derived through
some ancestress. ,
