One of the most remarkable dis
coveries made by "balloon sound
inns" is the existence around the
earth of tbe stratum of air now known
aa the "inversion layer. " Tbe auto
matically-recording instruments sent
up by M. Tesserenc de linrt and
others have shown that tbe temper
ature of tbe air steadily diminishes
up to a (eight of about eight miles,
but that beyond is a layer about „n
mile thick that shows a constant or
rising temperature with increasing
height. As this stratum must vary
(he atmospheric) density and re
fraction, it gives a basis for some
interesting speculations. JM _ Durand
Ureville thinks Mint, it must be faint
ly luminous, and suggests that it
may produce the "gegensobein" or
midnight glow opposite the sun, that
it may give tbe second lighting up of
high peaks in the Alps after tbe first
twiligbt glow has faded, that it may
hold the fine dust that gives the bril
liant skies after volcamo eruptions,
and may explain other puzzling
The eatbquake-proot building of
Prof. IJoermel rests in a massive
bowl, and has a rocking foundation
with a curved bottom surface of some
what less radius than that of the
bowl. A half spherical pivot tits into
a cup bearing at tbe centre. At eight
points near tbe outside of the bowl
are spiing butters, which keep tbe
house or other buildings from being
canted too freely, and lessen tbe lorce
of any shocks transmitted. Tbe
structure on this foundation is to
have a light steel framework, and is
expected to resist the severest earth
The vegetation on the area laid
waste by tbe Alt. Felee erpution of
lUO2 is gradually reappearing, and tbe
indigo plant, castor-oil plant, sensi
tive plant, guinea ferns, silver ferns
and other plants are spreading over
tbe ground. Koots not killed by tbe
hot ashes falling above them have
readily penetrated the thin crust. In
other places, the trampling of
animals and water action have beeu
breaking up tbe lava, giving a slowly
forming new soil or bringing the old
soil to the surface.
Tho assumption that both gravita
tion and repulsion are results of tbe
vibration of elastic bodies in an in
elastic medium has beeu the starting
poiut of the curious experiments of
Prof. Arthur Korn. In the simple
apparatus constructed, a ..metallic
globe, with an window,
is united _by tubes with a cylinder,
one end of which 'is closed by a
inembraue tbat can be set into rapid
puhsfitioujliy the alternate push and
pull of an electromotor. The metal
globe contains two unequal [air-filled
rubber balls, ono fixed to tbe inner
side of the globe, the smaller being
free. The is rilled with
water, tbe motor started, and tbe
pulsations of tbe mombraue alternate
ly contract and expand tho rubber
balls, at a speed that may be made
iucouoei?ably great, tbe motions be
coming quite invisible to tho eye.
At a certain speed nt vibration, ii
mysterious thing is seeu, the stnullur
bull begiuuiug slowly to move
through tho water toward, tho larger,
uriiiiir.illy iucioasiug its speed.
Muaiuiements showed that tho attrac
tion increased un approach exactly as
dirl that which pulled dowu Newton's
apple, and Prot. Korn considers his
Ihaory proven, gravitation depending
oulirely on tbo i'aot that all heavenly
bodies tun surrounded by an ether that
is inelastic I'boro aro ovor-vibra
turns iv matter, morocver, just as
there aie over-tones in the sound of v
violin string. Wiiuii the attracted
bodies coiiio too near, these o?er
vibiatloiis como intu play, and thoir
effect iv tbe iuelastio wiilur Is Im
mediately repulrivo, explaining the
oasoa of repulsion buou iv the hoavoua.

Aloohnl is obtained from peat by
tieating the fiber with sulphuric acid
und fermenting with a speolal yeast.
A ton of dry peat yields 43 gallons of
pure spirit at one-fourtb of tbe cost
of potato alcohol.
A nnw rope, brought out a year or
two ago, has two layers of strands
wound ever a core in opposite di
rections, the purpose being to pro
vent the familiar twisting— or, rather,
uDtwlßltiug— on lifting loads. A re
cent test showed tbat, while such
ropes do not have In themselves any
tendency to rotate, they may have
other faults. A rope tested had a
breaking strength of 10 tons 2 owt.,
but on being revolved five turns' by
band, tbe outer layer was untwisted
and relaxed, throwing tbe entire load
on the Inner-strands, which had about
one-third of tbe strength of tbe entire
rope. A load ttriking an obstacle
is liable to be given a number of
rotations, while even two turns were
sufficient to untwist and relax the
outer strands when a kink confined
the elfeot to a small section of the
rope. Another quality of these ropes
for which allowance must be made
was found to be increased wear wher
the strands oross, and in a rope that
had been used in hoisting for a con
siderable time it was found tbat the
outer strand had out into and materi
ally weakened the layer crossed.
Gingerbread is very susceptible to
obanges iv tbe moisture of the atmos
phere, and a scientific Frenchman has
taken advantage of this tact to provide
himself with a novel and ouilous
barometer. This is a warlike flguer,
made of gingerbread and suspended
in a suitable place in the house.
When anybody goes out, the "gener
al" is consulted, and if be feels flab
by and sticky, it is understood tbat
an umbrella may be needed soou, but
if tbe guide'is hard and tough to tbe
touch, it is known to be safe to ven
turo forth with no preparation for
bad weather. So far the general has
been an infallible adviser.
That leprosy is much .like sourvy,
its symptoms all being the same, is
the conclusion of Dr. John Atohor
ley, ot the London Royal College of
Surgeons, whn has practiced 15 years
in Hawaii, lie bas nut found tbe dis
ease oontagious. He attributes it to
a detective diet, in which t sumo nec
essary element is Jacking, and which
also injocts an excessive amount ot
poisonous substances into the circula
tion—baoteria, ptomaines and toxin.
