HIGH ART IN PHYSIC.
That phrase looks very like a solecism, at
first blush, but we must adhere to it as be
ing perfectly admissible.
Why should there not be art in preparing
medicines ? Art in arranging and display
ing them and art in the general appearance
of a drugstore.
We wish to call attention to a Sterling
Pharmacy, one that displays the highest
art in that line, a handsome place tastily
arranged and kept, but not so gaudily dec
orated as to be suggestive of extra profits
on account of the finery. We speak from
experience and observation in recommend
ing to all our readers, Bond’s Pharmacy.
The recent discovery of three Turner
drawings by a hair-dresser at Exeter, the
Mall Gazette observes, is the second
“find” of the sort there lias been this year.
Some few months ago a Sheffield manufac
turer found in a second-hand shop and
bought for an old song a drawing of the
“ Lake near Lord Harewood’s House, York
shire,” which Mr. Ruskin declared to be
“ a very curious and beautiful example of
Turner’s earliest work,” and for which he
offered to “outbid the dealer.” The Exc
eter drawings—three in number —have also
received Mr. Ruskin’s imprimatur. Their
present lucky owner bought them for a
sovereign apiece, and has already been offer
ed one thousand five hundred pounds for
the three.
Telegraphing in Chinese cannot bo done
in the same manner as in any other
tongue. Owing to the peculiarity of the
Chinese characters, each of which repre
sents a word, the Danish Telegraph Com
pany (the Great Northern), working the
new Chinese lines, has adopted the follow
ing device: There are from five thousand
to six thousand characters or words in
ordinary Chinese language, and the com
pany have provided a wooden block or
type for each of these. On. one end of this
block the character is cut or stamped out,
and on the other end is a number repre
senting the character. The operator re
ceives the message in numbers and takes
the block of each number transmitted, and
stamps with the other end the proper
Chinese character on the message form.
Thus a Chinese message sent in figures is 1
translated into Chinese characters again
and forwarded" to its destination. The
sending operator, of course, requires to
know the numerical equivalent of the
characters or have them found for him.
