Prof. W. J. McGee, of the bureau
of ethnology hi Washington, has re
ceived official permission to exhibit
at the Pan-American exposition in
Buffalo his studies .of trephining
among the early Peruvians. He will
show an*ri.*nt skulls trephined by
stone implements and in connection
with th's same animal skulls, show
ing experimental work done under
Prof. McGee’s direction, using the
same flint implements which the
aborigines were forced to employ.
It Is doubtful whether tha ancient
operations were performed for a
distinctly surgical purpose or wheth
\ er tho cnetettffff was of some mys
tic shmiffoanefe v 111 some eases the
freslmelm of tSe wounds in the bone
showed that the patient did not long
aurvlva, th? operation, and In one or
two Instance* it is plain that the an
cient operator must have cut dovn
upon a iarge blood vessel, causing al
most instantaneous death, but in
other cases the operation wan more
successful and the patient must have
survive * for some years at least.
Prof. W. 11. Holmes, of the Nation
al museum, will exhibit a dozen
groups of models representing the
domestic life of the aborigines of
both North ond South America and
will show also the houses in which
they lived and some of the garments
and Implements of their daily life.
Tills exhibit, although under the aus
pices of the National museum, has
been planned to supplement the reg
ular ethnologic and archaeologic ex
hibit of the exposition.
VEGETABLE CHARACTERISTICS

Certain plants are bohemian, nour
ishing themselves from day to day
without care for the morrow.
Others, on the contrary, are pro
foundly nellish or provident—but for
themselves, without occupying them
selves with their neighbors. Such is,
above all, the case with the potato,
..which, so long as it is living, not only'
takes ‘.-t food and water necessary to
its diti*y nourishment, but makes
strong provision, storing—like the
ant—it* nourishment for winter in its
tubercles. So, when It has lost its
green leaves, when its stem is dry, it
can sleep in peaceful hope of renewed
spring, its capital is put to one side
ready to give new dividends at the
general assembly of plants ihe follow
ing year. Iblt it works for itsel f aione.
On the contrary, the benn is a plant
devoted to her children. Knowing
that she is noon going to die, she hur
ries to give her children the nourish
ment Which it will be impossible for
. her to give 'later. Bhe surrounds them
With a sort of pocket of nourishment,
which will permit them, when they are
separated from her by wind or by
death, to And their own existence.
This classification of plants into bo
hemians and selfish and unselfish is
Worthy of being remarked.

A woman’s first experience of killing
an innocent animal is a disheartening
thing of which to read. Yet it is some
what consolatory to know that she
felt the sadness of it, as well as the
emptiness of the glory. Let us hope
that other women will not be moved
to engage in similar “sport.” This is
how Mrs. Grace Seton Thompson shot
her first elk, says the Youth’s Compan
ion.
He was drinking from the lake. Now
was the time. I crawled a few feet
nearer and raised the gun. The stag
turned partly away from me. In an
other moment he would be gone. I
sighted along the barrel and a terrible
bang went, booming through the air.
The elk raised his antlered head and
gased In my direction. Another shot
and the animal dropped where he stood.
He lay as still as the atones beside him.
I sat on the ground and made no at
tempt to go near him. One instant, n
magnificent breathing thing; the next,
nothing.

heard the two shots and came rushing
up.
”1 hare done it," I said, in adull tone,
pointing to the dark, still thing on the
bank.
"Yon surely hare."
A* we went up to the elk, Nimrod
paoed the distance 135 yards. How
beautiful the creature’s coat was.
glossy and shaded in browns! And
those great horns, with 11 points!
They did not look so big now. Nimrod
examined the carcass.
"You are an apt pupil,” he said. “You
put a bullet through his heart, an ]
another through his brain.”
“Yea." I said, “he never knew what
killed him.”
I felt no glory in the achievement.
VALUE OF SENTIMENT.
If Baa Prepare* ths Way for Every
Worihr Work tho Wsrld
Has Ksows,
In nothing are practical men more
likely to err than in underestimating
tho value of sentiment, says a writer in
the Saturday Evening Post. How
often we hear of “mere sentiment,” as
if it were utterly impotent and virtue
less. There ia a common contempt for
j dreamers. To call a man visionary is
| to blacklist him among those whose
| chief end is to bring things to pass.
And yet, were we to read history
aright, dealing with forces back of
facts, we should leara that tome
| dreamer or visionist, some eoul suf
fused with "mere sentiment,” has pre
pared the way for every worthy work
the world has known. Tha Hebrew
prophet was a dreamer, but he lifted
, his race to the crest of that civilization
which did for morality what Rome did
for law and what Greece did for art.
Not Garibaldi, nor Victor Emman
uel, was the creator of modern Italy.
Grand old Mazzini had dreamed of a
free and united Italy, and had started
a hundred thousand young men to
dreaming, and they were Garibaldi’s
red phirted battalions, “every one in
love with hardship, privation, freedom
and death."
j Samuel Adams did as much with his
pen as George Washington with his
•word to unloose the colonies from for
eign rule. The poet Is necessary to the
soldier. He “sings us up to courage
with commanding rhyme.” The man
of sentiment ia to the man of action
what the architect is to the builder.
There must be castles in the air before
we know how to lay the stones.
Let not the hand say to the imagina
tion: “I have no need of thee.” Senti
ment is not the vague, nebulous thing
it seems to be. It founds empires,
marches before armies, writes con
stitutions and governs the globe. It is
immortal, and its character justifies
such a phrase as Emerson’s, "tha
sternal ideal."
SNOW AND WATER SUPPLY.
So ass Popular Xotloaa Exploded fey
Heceot Experimeats ol ths
Weather Dares*.
Some very interesting eoncfusions
have been published by the experts
of theJJniUd i'.tuica weather bureau,
who have ;or several years been
studying tl e effect of winter 'snow
fall cm the water supply of the k;ic
eceding summer. The observations
have been confined to the arid regions
of the went, more particularly Colo
rado and Idaho, where tin- rivers and
streams derive their principal water
supply from the melting of the kj.ow
on the mountains. The generally
prevalent belief that a winter of
heavy snow fall is succeeded by
swollen streams in spring stiul sum
mer R not necessarily correct. It is
not. the quantity of sjiow that falls
during the winter so much ns the con
dition of th * soil when winfr-r sets ! u,
the quality of :bc : now srd tho tltoo
when it falls that determine whether
streams shr.il continue full late In the
season and /urnifch abundance of wa
ter for irrigating canals.
An umisurilly heavy snowfall In
March will certnlniy be followed by
drought in lute spring and j
unless this snow is p-verdod by a
snowfall in the early winter. It is
the snow that fulls in November and
Det-omber and thus becomes packed
hard during the winter and melts
slowly in ti e spring and summer thn'
keeps‘water in the streams till sum
mer is nearly over. The snew tlrar
falls in March nnd February has no I
time tn become packed and nrt-ilrriff.. \
The first warm breath of spring metis j
it with a rush, the streams overflow :
their banks, freshets flood the conn- !
try for a few days; then gradually
the streams subside and a drought <
ensues. \
NEW DAIRY PRODUCT.
Maaatoctare ot Plasasoa froas Milk
After tho Batter Has Boo*
Extracts*.
Many new industries have been de
veloped in, the British isles at the
close of the last century. One c 1
the most novel had its birth in the
vicinity of Buckingham—namely, thfet
of the manufacture from the milk of
creameries, after the butter has been
extracted, of a substance known ly
the highly classical name of plasm.*;,
says Chamber’s Journal. This sub
stance taken its name from the Greek,
meaning “that which gives form.”
The fresh milk ns it comes
the cow is put into a separator, al
the cream being removed by th s
method. The separated milk is nf -
«r wards treated so as to coagulate
all tho protnida of the milk; and 1
coagulated mass is then kneaded nail
dried at a temperature of 70 degrees
centigrade under an atmosphere of
(arbenie acid gas. When perfectly.*
free from moisture, the plasmon is
ground into a granular powder which
ia completely soluble in hot water.
As to the economic value of pins-'
non there can be no doubt, when it!
is known the German government!
supplies it in very large quantities to
the army and navy. As n portable.!
concentrated nutrient, according tew
the German government department!
for the investigation of foodstuffs fort
the troops, it has been found than
one ounce of this powder is equal I
in nourishing and sustaining proper-] ;
ties to three and n quarter pounds! !
of the finest beefsteak, or to about!
10 or 12 pints of milk.

Is Know* as the Baoh*h of
Klßsehasoa.
In the Congo region there is a mosl
remarkable tree, of which Europeans
had often heard, but of which they
had never seen a picture until n few
days ago, when several photograph'!
of it, which were taken by order ot
the Congo government, arrived in
Paris, Berlin and London. The tree
Is known as the baobab of Kinschas
sa, and it ia believed to be the largest
tree of its kind in nil Africa, says '
the New York Herald.
Kinsebnssa is on the Congo rail
road, about an hour and a half's ride
from Leopoldville, and is a flourish
ing place, having several factories
and an English mission. The banks
of the Stanley pool are low at this
point and several huge baobabs prow
on them. The natives call these mon
sters “monkeys’ bread trees,” anft"
their scientific name is “Adansonio
digitnta.”
The monarch of them all, which
has just been photographed, is over
30 feet in cireumferenee, yet, strange
to say, it is hardly 30 feet in height.
Its gigantic branches nre leafless nnd
withered, and the trunk itself has
lor many years shown signs of decay.
Indeed, it is nnltfc hollow on one side,
and it is evident that it cannot sur
vive much longer. At the foot its
growth has been most abundant, ns
can be seen from the great breadth
and solidity, not only of the main
trunk, but also of its numerous off
shoots.

Many of our well-known millionaires
have a habit of going about New York
with only a few cents of change in
their pockets, and perhaps none car
ried less of the coin of the realm than
Henry Clews, says the New York Post.
Not long ago he and Mrs. Clews dined
at a piace where the bonkir-brcker
author was unknown, and where the
rule was strictly cash down. Knowing
that his good wife generally had suffi
cient money in her purse to defray any
ordinary expense, lie whispered when
the finger bowls were brought: “My
dear, will you lend me enough money
to pay for the dinner? I forgot to
bring any money.” But Mrs. Clews,
too, had forgotten tc bring any money,
and there sat this delectable couple
with millions at home, but not n cent
for hotel tribute! The bank*r’s ex
planation to the waiter was not re
garded ii:s satisfactory, neither did the
hou.-t* understand. The proprietor, a
fellow without discernment < r tact,
was r-o inclined to be incredulous that
Mr. f’l.twH, disdaining n controversy,
quietly deposited Ids gold watch as a
pledge that the bill should be paid as
soon ns lie could send a inrpvrnger

scrape Mr. Clews is not singular. Oth

TO PREVENT HAILSTORMS.
Aootyloao Oob Is l?sort for This Par-
BOBS !■ tke Wiua-Ornwlkc Dis
tricts of Fraaeo.
Additional Interest will be centered
j upon the acetylene gas display at the
Tan-American exposition because of
i the fact that in France an acetylene
j cannon is used by the winegrowers to
prevent hailstorms,
The explosive agent used in the gun
is a mixture of ncntylena and air, nnd
it. is fired by an electric ir,niter. The
use of aeciylonc s:»lhfe gun is designed
+ o obviate the necessity of keeping n
supply of explosive material on hand
for charging the gfun.
The cannon is connected with an
acetylene renerntor, and is thus al
ways ready for use.
Tt is stated that 65 pounds of car
bide serves for about 1,000 charges, and
will last six months.
The valve between the explosive
chamber and the acetylene generator
U controlled electrically, and the op
eration of the gun consists inclosing
the gas-valve circuit fora few seconds,
then opening it and closing the igniter
circuit fire the charge.
It Is raid that a battery of guns may
be last.- lied, covering a large area, and
7* fired simultaneously from one sti
fthm by n single operator.
’ In sections of the United States
where hailstorms do great damage
a similar acetylene gun might be made
i to do good service.
TEST WAS TOO EXPENSIVE.
Tho British Government Wosli Not
Stsai far th# Price of Inventor
Maxim's Ammunition.
One of the new knights of Great
j Britain is an American, Hiram S. Max
im, the inventor of the gun that bears
! his name. It was in recognition of this
: invention that the late Queen Victoria
• bestowed upon him the honor of
: knighthood.
When the Maxim quick-firing gun
was being tested by the government,
with a view of finding out its weak
points, its inventor was asked to have
10.000 rounds fired at the highest pos
sible speed. The experiment was sat
isfactorily carried out, but the chair
man of tha committee of investigation
was still unsatisfied.
“That’s all very well as far as it
goes,” he exclaimed, “but could you
guarantee your gun to go on firing au
tomatirally at the same rate for, say,
24 hours?”
“I can,” was the quiet reply, “and I
will—on one condition.”
“And that is?”
“That the government finds and
pays for the ammunition.”
At first the committee were inclined
to close with the offer, but when it was
discovered that 804,000 rounds would
be fired nnd that the cost pf the ex
periment would be something like £5,-
760 they dispensed with the trial.
Mormons In Mexico.
Five million acres of land have
: been purchased from the Mexican
government for the establishment of
j Mormon colonies. The land is in the
states of Durango, Tamaulipns, Con-
Ijhuiln nnd Vera Cruz. In the course of
the next four months 60,000 Mormons
are expected to locate there. The
iMormon colony in the state of Chi
huahua was recently enlarged by the
arrival of about 2,000 settlers from
jUtah.

A newspaper the other day record
ed an anecdote about a prominent
western physician on his first visit
to New York,, says the Conm^r- ■
Advertiser. His dinner companion
asked h!"o what interested him most
in the streets of the city, nnd the
physician replied the fact that ko

course, promotes self-co inning.
Many a person here is-*' ore truly
a hermit, cut. off by inclination or c-'r
cumstarr** from liis fellows, than
some rivluscs who live an ostenta
tious life of isolation. They pass
their fellows on the street fnutuall.v
unknown. Many persons have no
friends; some have no desire ho make
any; others, probably with a grega
rious instinct, are too diffident to
push an acquaintance.- So they talk
to themselves as men in a desert
learn to talk to themselves. In a

jolt a man out of the habit of talk

hers nobody cares.
STRANGE MEN IN BORNEO.
A Mown tain Trtko Tknt Was Un
known to (nroionns Till
Tory Booontly.
A strange tribe has just been discov
ered in Borneo by Dr. A. W. Nieuwen
huis, the distinguished Dutch explorer.
As he was traveling through the dis
trict of Sarawak he heard from lii.s
guides that at a little distance there
was a mountain tribe which no Eu
ropean or American hml ev, r visited,
and straightway be went thither, and
in a day or two found himself at the
lieadqu.-irtcis of thc.-t* unknown abo
rigines. At once he saw that they dif
fered from cl! otl - r t.ativox of llornen,
and he spent some weeks in a-quaint
ing himself with their curious cus
toms nnd also in studying their eoun
try, which is entirely unknown to for
eign travels. In this way li* accumu
lated a mass of new material, which
he intends to give to the world at an
early date in the form of a book.
Thi3 is the rpc ond journey which Dr.
Nieuweuhuis has taken to central
Borneo. .He first went there in 1895.
and explored the sources of the Ivap
uas nnd Mnhnkkmn rivers, after which
he returned to Europe, where he at
once obtained an appointment as di
rector of the botanical garden at Bui
tenzorg. In 1899 he went again to
Borneo, intending to thoroughly ex
plore the interior of the country, and
it is claimed that In this task he has
succeeded better than any previous
traveler.
An Ohio Woman’s Story,

100, had the unique experience in her
infancy of being carried off by a

fall of 1800. After several hours’
scouring of the woods the crying of
an infant directed the searchers to
some underbrush, where the child
was discovered. The bear ran away
when the pa»*ty approached it, leav
