"It i.s only eompai-.itively recently that its nature has liecn known, nnd even nt this day very few people seem to have r.ny notion ns to what it is l:i reality. The ancients n.';;unl ed it ns altogether mysterious and even magical. They found that it was rendered electrical by friction so as to attract light sultances, and our word 'electricity' pomes from the Greek r.nrio for r.mber, which was 'electron.' A favorite pmudo v.-it h them was how the Insects h- frequently found in nnilwr iK-canie to be so situated. "1 luive myself seen a chunk of very transparent amlier in which a sm::H li.ard with five legs whs Itieas-.s!, looking as if it might have been alive yesterday, though, doubtless, it had been do.ul for thousands of ycni'A. The mystery regarding this sort of phenomenon is easily enough explained when it is understood that umber is act ually the fossil gum of an extinct kind ol cone hearing tree. In the process of hard piling it Imprisoned the flies and other creatures preserved in the chunks of it that nre found today. It is discovered plentifully by digging in certain parts of tho great plains of north Germany, where tho strange tree onco flourished. "It Is also found in considerable quanti ties nlong the shorn of the Baltic, in tho yellow sandstone. At Palmicken, in. rust Prussia, it is dug in regular mines; else where it is picked from cliffs, and n good denKf it Is gathered in the shape of nnd ules cast tip hy the waves. The finest specimen of amber in Kuropp is n cup madeof that material now at the Brighton museum, Kngland. It was found at I love some years ago, together with weapons and utensils of stone nnd bronze, so it is evi dently very ancient indeed. "In the Fourteenth century, and before timber was made Into knives and forks with one prong, which were used by princes and church dignitaries, it was more valuable than gold.

They thought it was actually ler frozen to great density by duration of time, congealed beyond liquidation. 'Krystallos' in Greek means 'ice.' The famous writer on natural philosophy, Pliny, who wrote more facts that were not true t linn ever nny man collected together before or since, says the crystal is undoubtedly water frozen by eold so intense thi.t nothing can melt it again. Iloiiinn ladies of that time were accustomed to carry such spheres as this one in their hands during hot weathei for coolness. "It was the thing, also, to have tho ma ui'ial worked Into wine jugs and other vessels. Nero had two drinking cups oi crystal worth Sl.iKK) each, and a crystal Indie also; but when he learned that he had lost his kingdom he broke them, lest they fall into the hanilsof nny one else.

On such parts of the coast of the Flowery Kingdom us produce pearl oysters a regular business is often made of manufacturing penrls ar tificially by introducing into the shells ol the live oysters foreign objects of various kinds. You doubtless know tluit the pearl is n morbid symptom in the bivalve. A grain of sand or some such substance get ting into the oyster produces irritation, and the animal protects itself l y covering tho objectionable particle with coating after coi.ting of its own pearly secretion The interruption of light by the successive coats of which the pearl is formed in this way gives it its beautiful luster. Taking advantage of this habit of the pearl oyster the ingenious Chinaman pries it gently open and puts in whatever ho likes, muylio a little figure of ngod like this. The oyster goes to work and covers it with pearl, unt ii after a few months the idol is a pearl idol It is worth mentioning Incidentally that sharks nre by no means such a terror to pearl divers us is commonly supposed.

Brooklyn F.aglo. riioppcii otr in own rout. A Middleton, Miss., dispatch of Aug. 4 to Tho Philadelphia Times says: A singular instance of fortitude and en durance was that exhibited by Hermann Ixiebnitz, a worthy German living n short distance from t his place. One morning he commenced his work by cutting down large tree, which in falling was caught and supported hy the brunches of another close by. Loebnitz climbed this in order to cut nway the limbs which upheld the first, having carried his ax up with him tied by a cord to his waist. Ho succeeded in break ing away one of the supporting branches, and the tree fell a short distance, but in its fall hurled tho unhappy man downward. His foot being caught, however, between the trunk and limbs of the two trees, he did not reach the earth, hut hung sus pended, head downward, in thenir. He remained thus for some time, crying for help and endeavoring to free himself, but the pain from his crushed foot, impris oned as it was, and tho discomfort of his position growing insupportable, nnd do spairing of any help arriving, he grew des perate, nnd succeeded in swinging himself upright for a few minutes, with despera tion sei;-.ed his ax and with a stroke or two cut his foot olT just above the ankle. Then began ii painful descent tinder what were perhaps the most remarkablo circuni stances such a thing was ever accom plished. When down he reached his hat, and fill ing it with earth, moss and leaves bound it to the bleeding stump, then crawled home, slowly and painfully dragging his leg after hint. It was not until ho was within n few rods of his homo that ho was perceived by his wifo nnd children, who then assisted him to t he house. He was placed in bed and Dr. Uenshaw, of this place, sent for, who tied up the severed arteries, and who says that Ijoehnitz's pow ers of endurance were lieyond anything in his experience, for, in spite of his dreadful sufferings, the man remained quite sensi ble and calm through It oil, though the mere shock of such a thing was enough to kill him. Tennessee Superstition. The greatest excitement is bein. created in Weakley county by the appearance of a witch in the family of Frank Hays, living near Greenfield.

Site is perfectly sane until she hears them coming, when she goes into violent spasms, and declares she can hear roaring ns like distant thunder, nnd she can see animals making their way tq, her. Now comes the strangest part of the story, and a number of the most reliable men in the county can vouch for this as a fact, there being eyewitnesses to t he same. Aftcrcach attack a small roll or bat of cot ton is found clinging to the victim's neck just nlrove her breast, and the most in credible ones have held. their hands very lightly against her neck and found, after the spell is over, beneath their hands the mysterious cotton.

Cor. Memphis Avalanche. A New Safety Trlsscr. Hportsmon will rejoioo to hoar that a Springfield man lias invented a safety trigger which is at once entirely automatic and unconsciously operated, one that is absolutely safe save at tho very instant when the marksman pulls with intelligent aim. The principle of the invention is much simpler than that of tho present form, ami the construction is therefore much less expensive. The attachment is comprised in three pieces, n clodded im provement upon the present complicated arrangement. All that is visible on the outside is n cap or but ton. ii h nestles just in t lie rear of the iron lu'.op that protects the t'tggers on tho under side cf he stock. The gun cannot go off until this button is pressed close to the stock, and that i'l just what is done unconsciously every time the hand is closed firmly In the act of taking aim.
