Till: KA(iLIÍ: WKD.NKSDAY, JULY 22. I!'". HARD LINtj. r.loülcal Men SufTiTlus from Too Ww.i riiiluntlinipy. The medical men of ltrussels, accord in,? to the London News, are passing through a trial of much the same sort as that which lately aillicted their pro fessional brethren in Cork. They'-complain of the inadequate pay they re ceive from the societies formed by the working people to secure medical at tendance on the cooperative principle. In Brussels, as in many places else where, the poor club together for inedi cal aid, and engage a practitioner, who attends thein for a fee which is almost purely nominal. This might be en dured, and is endured, on the consider ation that the insuillcient offerings of the poor man will be made good by the liberality of those who are better off in the world. Hut that is just where IJrussels fails. The well-to-do middle class lias contrived to secure a footing in the 'mntualist" societies. Persons who are quite able to make pood the deficit in the medical ex chequer help to increase it. They come in a t poor men in such numbers that the unhappy practitioner hardly knows where to look for his legitimate fee. I le has protested, but his last state is worse than his first. The protest was addressed to the offenders only, and they had no dilllculty in persuading the vast majority of the genuine working ckiss members to make common cause wilh them. , Tlio doctors are the best abused per sons in ltrussels just now, and twenty of them have resigned their olliee in the mntualist societies. As prelude to a p, ;ible strike of doctors, this seems to !-.i;:nali.e one of the most awful dangers of the time. It would be awkward, however, if by a pure coincidence, of course the death rate should diminish during the continuation of the strike. juiduu the people wiliihi its win.., smoke after sunset in the streets uuli with a covered pipe, "in order that tl: cinders may not be blown about.

MUSKMtLON LITERATURE. Th Fruit Him I'nriniMt that Thfinp of Lover and Writer. Muskmelons have played a part in history. They caused the fall of Arques and led Mack to the capitula tion of I'lm. One day, says the Tari:; Lc; Temps, Ablie Ilernis came to dine with the marquise de l'ompadour, who was furious because the maitre d'liotel had forgotten to serve melon. "Shall I ,Tct two muskmelons for you, madameV" lie paid two louts for them. "Delight ful," said the marquise. "My compli ments. Monsieur l'Abbe." Hernis was happy until the moment when the clock struck his eye. "What makes you sad?" asked the pompadour. "Oh, madame hi marquise," he replied, "my friend Malvin and I have only one pair of trousers for both of us, and he is wait ing for it to go to dinner." The pompa dour gave a pension of three hundred thousand livres and an abbey to him. His friend became, under the same pro tection, archbishop of Lyons. One evening a strategist was explaining to Itonaparte what he should have done i I Mantua had not surrendered. Nona parte asked: "You have been in llw wars, monsieur?" The strategist r r"ed: "No, but I have read Polybk: . SUNLIGHT AND COLORS. Ilnmarkanle Change Produced by Manip ulation. Every one knows the danger of mis takes in attempting to select colored articles in artilicial light. Only the white light of the sun, containing all the elements of color known to us, can be trusted iu such cases to reveal the actual hues possessed by the objects under examination. Some interesting scientific experiments on the effect of light in revealing or eonceuling color were lately made by Dr. II. W. Vogel, the distinguished physicist and astron omer in Ilerlin. Starting with the fact that in a pho tographic "dark room," filled with ruby colored light, bright sc.irlet cloth ap pears white, it was shown that when no white light whatever is admitted to a dark room, the power of the eye to distinguish colors is temporarily lost, and all objects appear of various shades of white and black. . By mingling blue or green with red light, the colors of objects can be made to undergo remarkable changes. The quantity of light alone also affects the appearance of color, particularly cer tain tints of blue and violet, for which reason, even in the absence of artificial lights, a person purchasing colored goods in a dark store must carry them to the door or window, where a strong illumination can be obtained, in order to make certain of the precise shade. (Jamliling In liyduey. Public attention has lately been called in Sydney to the serious increase of gambling in that city. The local in spector general of police has made a re port on the subject, in which he says that the evil is largely on the increase and that a considerable number of the men trafllckinj iu it are making large fortunes at the e;st of their victims. In twenty months there have been four hundred convictions for gambling, and fines of various umounts have been im posed, but the trafile goes on flourish ing jn such a way as to demonstrate that the fines arc utterly futile as de terrents, and that they bear but a small .proportion to the profits. When the last mail left arrangements were being made for calling a public meeting to consider the subject. CUNDKNSEI) ,18 Time Table &Pyr May. 3, 190. The Atchison, Topka and Santa Fe Railway.
