AS HE REMEMBERS DICKENS.
Senator's Recollection of Novelist on
the Lecture Platform.
How Charles Dickens appeared
while on the lecture platfrom in
Washington, D. C, In 1865 is de
scribed in the "Memoirs" of ex-Sena
tor Cole of California: "The lecture
room was crowded, but I was favored
with a seat near the front, where I
had a fair opportunity to see and to
observe some of the peculiarities of
that great author. Mr. Dickens was
dressed in a highly-fashionable eve
ning attire, not all in dark colors, and
In appearance rather foppish. His
vest was of a hue to exhibit to the
best advantage a heavy gold chain
which extended from the middle both
wavs across his chest. His neckwear
was of a cut and color to be called
flashy. His hair was rather long and
wavy, and was arranged to stand out
at the sides above the ears. His fea
tures are well represented in the
numerous pictures seen of him, and it
will be observed they have quite a
uniform appearance. He read single
chapters, without comment or intro
ductory remarks, further than to an
nounce the work, as from 'Copper
field,' 'Nicholas Nickleby,' 'The Pick
wick Papers' or 'Little Dorrit.' The
book in each case lay open before him,
but he paid little or no attention to the
Defense of the Surgeon.
Tn a recent lecture at the Harvard
Medical school Dr. Maurice H. Rich
ardson set forth the absolute need of
resorting to the knife in certain cases.
The idea that the surgeon lacks sensi
bility and is more or less indifferent
to human suffering and may even per
form an operation when not absolute
ly necessary he declared to be all
wrong. He said that the contrary
was shown by the fact that the sur
geon is constantly laboring to make
his profession unnecessary by prevent
ing the recurrence of the diseases for
which he operates, as well as by en
deavoring to cure without resorting to
operation. "A popular delusion that
the surgeon is simply looking for an
opportunity to keep busy all the time,"
Dr. Richardson added, "results in thou
sands of deaths of sufferers who are
persuaded by friends not to submit to
operation, until it is too late to save

A new fire detector of unusual kind
is a fine copper wire encased in fusible
metal, which, in turn, is covered with
insulating material and inclosed in a
copper tube of one-tenth of an inch.
The tube is strung like a bell or
mounted in short sections on porce
lain blocks. When the temperature
increases the sensitive temperature
160, 200 or 370 degrees Fahrenheit
the fusible alloy is softened and forced
through the porous insulation against
the copper tube, ringing the alarm
continuously until stopped.

Insomnia is the not uncommon fate
of the brainworker who, after years of
continuous mental strain, retires from
active life. The reason is that mental
activity demands a large supply of
blood for the brain, and the blood ves
sels gradually accommodate them
selves to this large supply. But, when
the hard work is over, the brain does
not always realize that it needs less
nourishment, and hence the condition
of excessive mental activity which i
what insomnia is. .
