?Water at high tempera! tire cannot
be raised any considerable distance by
Ruction, as the vapor discharged from
the water so heated follows the re?

to pump hot water always place the
supply above the pump, soi. that it will
be supplied from a head.
?M. Louis Boutan has succeeded in
taking some beautiful photographs of
the bottom of the" sea by the aid of a
newly-invented lamp for burning mag?

first descends to the bottom and selects
his views, next has Iiis apparatus low?
ered, to him, then arranges the same
for several flashes, enabling him to
take as many successive pictures.
?The toad is a higher animal than
the frog, because it gives birth, to^lit
tlc air-breathing toads, whereas the
frog lays eggs that produce fish-like
tadpoles. But the frog is in certain
respects the most wonderful creature
in the world. Think- of the vegetable
eating tish with gill.-* that turns into
ajo.?jr-d4r?rth fhg land animal, de.velop
ing teeth and becoming a carnivorous
quadruped. That is the life his lory of
the frog.
?Snakes have their usefulness in
the world. They are scavengers of
swamps and morasses where other ani?
mals of size are unable to penetrate or
exist. It is in the tropics, of course,
that serpents chiefly abound. All
snakes are of: tropical origin, but some
species have spread into cooler lati?
tudes. In very cool countrics 111 ere a re

.belief, there are some snakes in Ire?
land, but they are very rare.
?A mechanical fluid is the recent in?
vention of an American engineer. It
is a mass of hard steel balls of two
siises, one-eighth and one-fourth of an
inch in diameter, respectively. Under
pressure this mass flows and transmits
pressure in all directions like a fluid.
The device is calculated for use wher?
ever fluid pressure is desired without
'leakage, and it has already been "em?
ployed for tightening the .brasses of
connecting rods, a pocket at the side
being filled with the balls and pressure
? applied with a set screw.
TILLAGE IN CHINA.
Farming Is Very Primitive arid MakoB
I'oor Roturus.
Apart from the ."Yellow Lands" of
the Hoang-ho, which need no manure,
the arable regions of China seem to
have maintained their fecundity for
over four thousand years, entirely
through the thoughtful care' of the
peasantry in restoring to the soil, un?
der another form, all that the crops
have taken from it. The j do wing of
the Chinese is very poor. They scarce?
ly do more than scratch the surface of
the ground with their bent-stick plows,
wooden-tooth drills and wicker-work
harrows; and instead of straight lines,
so dear to the eye of the western far?
mer, the ridges and furrows are as
crooked as serpents. The real secret
of their success seem-, to lie in the care
they take to replenish the soil. Ail
the sewage of the towns is carried out
every morning at daybreak by special
coolies, to be preserved for manure;
while tho dry herbs, straw, roots and
other vegetable refuse, are econo?
mized with the greatest care for fuel. |
The Chinese peasant offsets the rude- J
ness of his implements with manual
skill. He weeds the ground so ca.re
fully.that there is scarcely a leaf above
the ground that docs not appertain to
the crop. All kinds of pumps and hy?
draulic wheels uro \yorked, either by I
the hand, animals, or the wind. The
system of tillage, therefore, resembles j
market-gardening rather than the j
broad method of cultivation common j
in Europe and America. The 'and is I
too valuable to be devoted to pasture,, j
and the forests nearly everywhere have
been sacrificed to tillage fco such an ex?
tent that the material for the enor?
mously thick' native eotlius has now to :
be imported from abroad.?Century.
The Walrus on l.s:iul.
As might be expected, a 'walrus is
about as helpless on land as a canal [
boat. It is with no Httlo ui faculty,
and much hitching and floundering,
that he drags his huge bulk upon a
sandy shore even with the boosting
that he gets from behind by the break?
ers as they roll in and (lash against
him. His hind flippers arc- ofT little US8
on laud; and on sand or pebbles, where
his front flippers do not hold well, the
labor of flounder ing for ward is so great
that he never stirs beyond the edge of I
the water,, and usually lies with his i
body half awash, with the salt spray:
dashing over him like torrents ox rain.
On solid rock or ice he gets along much
better, and often a herd will spread
ceveral rods back from tho water's
edge. The females and younger wal?
ruses have far less development of nock
to encumber them, and therefore enjoy
more freedom of motiou than the old
males, who actually seem a great bur?
den unto themselves. These creatures
are strictly social in their habits, and
always go in herds, whether traveling,
feeding, fighting or resting ashore. In
the days before the slaughter of all
living ereatun-r, became a, ruling pas?
sion in the breast of man, the Pacific
species inhabited the whole of Bering
sea and strait in herds which often
contained thousands, and even tens of
thousands, of Individuutc. -St, Miehu?
