An ffort in tho Hebrides Islands That
was Urinful ofsticcess.
Lieutenant Boylo T. Somervillo of
the English navy, who lived many
9 years in the Hebrides islands, tells the
following interesting tale regarding the
work of a professional native rain
maker. Toward the end of the year,
just after yam planting, thero came an
unusual period of drought, so that anl iII
land tribe in the island of Ambrymn
went to its rainmaker and demanded his
inmmediate attention thereto.
He at once set to work to weave a
sort of hurdle of the branches- and
leaves of a treo famed for its rain pro
ducing qualities, which, being finished,
was placed, with proper incantations,
at the bottom of what should have be0n
a water hole in the now parched bed of
the mountain torrent. Thore it was
then held'in place with stones. Down
came the rain; nor did It ceaso for 48
hours, by which time it had become too
much of a good thing. Soon the rain
producing hurdle was quito 10 feet un
der water in the seething torrent, and
the people, much to their dismay, saw
that their yam, and the suirounding
earth were beginning to Wash away
down tho hillsides.
Tho lieutenant continues: "Now
mark what comes of fooling with the
elementsl No man of tho hill country
was able to divo to the bottom of the
water holo to pull up the hurdle with
its woight of stones, so the merciless
rain still hold on. At last tho shoro na
tives, accustomed to swilmming and div
ing, heard what the matter was, and
some of them coming to the assistance
the compeller of the elements was re
covered from its watory bed and-the
rain stopped W'
It is such a coincidenco as this, hap
pening perhaps once in a decade,which
causes this people, now thoroughly
Christianized, to refuse togivo up their
rain doctors, although all other out
ward forms of rank superstition appear
to have been freely abandoned.-Louis
villo Courier-Journal.
Cracking of Trees.
The catalpa never shows tho "sero
and yellow leaf'' in autunm liko thO
sumac, hird matplo, etc., for the rei
son that its leaves aro' caught in a
green, unripened stato by the first sovere
frosts. Lu one night their bright green
is turned to i dingy black. This stud
den cheek gorges the camiun layer
anid iew wood of the stem with water.
An excess of water swells the proto
plasm of the cells to such an extent as
I to rupturo the inelastic bark, and in
trees whero the cell structuro of the
wood is not ripo the crack will extend
into the wood often with a noiso liko
an explosion. This often occurs in the
fall when it is not cold onough to stop
plowing. Sometimes wo have munch
loss in nursery in this way with varie
ties not fully ripo when the first frosts
como. Sonmietimes indeed it injures
very hardy varieties. In such cases the
swelling of the protoplasm comes from
the water absorbed at the ground sur
face when combined wet and cold come
- together in autinumn. Tho cracking of
cherries and pears comes fron the samo
cause-that is, by absorbing water on
wet days, causing an expansion of the
protoplasm. With trees tho best treat
ment is to cover the rLipturo with moist
clay end then wrap to exclude the air
as much its possible.-Iowa Stato Reg
'rhe Craw fish and te LOvees.
"Whenover I hear of a break in the
levee dlowni int my district, I know that
L nine chances to one crawvfisli have
caused it. The assertion' may sound
-slightly exaggerated, but it is a fact
nevertheless that the troublesomte little
Scrawfish wvork more danger to the le
vees than does the water. On a big rise,
Iw~hen the bed of the river is stretched
r fromt emb~ankmnent to epbankment, ftie
crawvfish burtrowv into the levees and
live there in the moist earth. They
multiply faster than maggots and loosen
up the earth worse than mocles.
"'The levee may be completely sodded
with grass and you see no external evi
dence (if the dlamtage going on within,
but when the next big rise comes you
will see It. I have frequently knowvn
the water to break through the levee two
or three feet fronm the top:, and you can at
tribute it to nothing but the dlestrutctive
work of crawfish. This waIs particular
ly true of the break at Offrut 's in 1889,
1when a port ion of the town of Green
vil lo was S nmerged. Theo bu ilder of
the levee in the future will have to take
into account the crawvils as one( of his
most stubborn foes."-'--St. Louis Globe
It may b)o said without exaggeration
that swearing feinms an: inmportant fac
tor in the matsulinmo vocabulary of
nearly every civilized nationt. Great
- w~riters like Shakespeare knmow this. A

Thero Is a Constant Flow of Unconscious B
Thoght Whilo We Sleep.
The physiologists of the first half of
tho century and 8om1o more modern writ
ers expressed the belief that dreaming e,
only occurred at the moment when con- f,
sciousness began to resume its sway. 0
But in The North American Reviow. tj
Dr. Louis Robinson says that moderni
investigators accept tho thoory of tho
metaphysicians and believo that thero
Is a certain amount of cezebral action
during tho vholo period of sleep, and 1V
that tho vast majority of our dreams t
never como to our knowledge. Ho
thinks that there is an unbroken cur- u
rent of ideas which passes through the h1
sloeping brain, and which only reveals
itself to tho conscious ego wlen somo
disturbing element intervenes. " Wo a
may comparo it to an invisiblo and si
lont river, flowing by without betray- 1
ing its presence, savo whero thero is a f
splash of a fish or of a falling stone, or c
somo foaming eddy whoro a rock breaks s
tho smooth surface. "
Dr. Robinson's article is long and in- I
teresting. Tho conclusions at which i,
ho arrivi a-o as follows: Owing to o
tho unceasing miconscious cerebration a
which is a necesary concomitant of our
power of intellect, tho brain is always .
inl part awake, and is especially active il
in shifting memorized matter. The V
cerebral centers connected with the %
senZso organs ire continually and uide- e
pendently employed in stimulating im
pressions from 'without. Cortain of the
senses, especially that of hearing. re- e
main open to external influences dluring
sleep and convey actual vibrations to the e
brain. There is an active and Iurely e
involuntary predisposition Onl the par't n
of the mental apparitus to coipare and
collato all the messages which coIe,
or s2eem to come, froimi withient, throtigh
tho 1enlso chamiiels, and to coll;te theio
again with -wiat is brought to the con
sci'ousness by i nvoltutary recollection.

;also the gaie of drafts, which wis
layed on a chlckored board in the earli
st times. The poor children were con
mnt with draftsmnon and boxes made of
ough pieces of clay, bit the richer ones
stually had beatittully, carved iron
Cded draftsmen iiand boxes.
The young Greeks, too, were well
rovided with toys ind games for their
musement. Tho toys were chiefly dolls
mdo of balked clay, the arms and legs
eing jointed with string, and there
.)ro movablo. They had a favorito gamie
alled Chytriand, which has boen pre
i-rved throtigh many ages, and is now

patont in the telephone system will
expire, and parties *ill be able &y
buy a tolophone for a few dollars,
and for $35 you can purchase a
