The disppso begins with chilliness, lati

feels irritated, grows rid, and ia often

women are iu imminent pord from the
mildest phase of the fever. When it
seems to be cured its consequences are
hazardous. Children, to whom it is main
ly con fined, of course, are subject after
a severe attack to permanent ill-health,
and to some of the many forms
of chronio scrofula, as shown by boils,
sores behind the earn, inflammation of
the eyes, glandular swellings, and stru
mous ulcers. Scarlatina is oltcn followed
by a peculiar dropsy, afl'ecting the sub
cutaneous cellular tissues and larger
serous cavities. It occurs, like all the
exanthemata, as an epidemic some
times in Tory virulent type. In the

from the primary effect ot the contagious

The Formation of Coal.
In the swamps and bayous of the moist
regions of the South pure vegetable mat
ter, having the appearance and proper
ties of peat, may often be found in the
very act of accumulation. It frequently
occurs in immense beds, and it requires
no trained observation to see that, in ad
dition to the remains of the ordinary low
marsh plants, it is made up of the ruins
and refuse of swamp-loving forest trees.
Now, all about the flanks and spurs of
the Rocky mountains, with greater or
less intervals, from New Mexico to fur
beyond the northern limits of the United
States, there aro found beds of coal of
peculiar (u ilily. This coal is covered up
with hardened mud containing Bhella and
bones ot aquatic animals, and everything
about it suggests that tho cool-making
material was somehow sunk beneath the
waters of un old lake, and was buried un
der the gradually-increasing bed of mud
with which the old lake-basin yas fiualh
tilled. But the point cf interest is this :
that in many places the Rocky mountain
coal has reached a stiigo of decompositi 'U
not so very allien in advance of the hu
mus and peat of enr modern swamps and

about calling some portions of it coal ai

The Story of a Veteran.
In a fashionable saloon on Kearny
street, two distinguished- looking militia
men were recounting their numerous
campaigns at Sacramento and San Bru

coat empty lounged up to the bar. As
he did so he touched the elbow of one
of the bullion-bound warriors, and at
once apologized to the tierce military
glare fastened on him.
" Beg pardon," said he, " but Tm al
ways kind of careless wnen any of the
boys in blue are 'round. I used to be
one nivseif."
The warriors in blue and gold did not
eleign to respond, but the stranger was
uot on the alert for any obvious slights.
" I lost this arm," he continued, "at
Vicksburg. Aud this ough," he add
ed, as he sho. k on a spasm, " I got in
the same place."

up it looked good enough, only for the

A Strange Accumulation.
Thomas Dick puts the hoarding of
wealth in this striking way :
Suppose a man could lay up a stock of
clothes aud provisions sufficient to last
mm tor 300 years, whit would it avail
him, since ho can live at most but from
seventy to 100 years? Suppose he laid
up in a stoic-house 70,000 pans of sin es,
to what end would it serve, if he cou.d
make use, during his whole life, of only
the one-hundredth part of them? Ho
would be iu the same condition as a man
who had 100 dishes placed before
him at dinner, but who could partake of
only one ; or of a person who had 100
mansions purchased for his residence,
but could occupy only one. How ridicu
lous it would appear if all that could bo
said of a man while yet he lived was
Biniply this that his whole life had been
spent in collecting and laying up in a
storehouse C0,0j0 mahogany chairs
which were never iuteneled to be used
for the furniture of apartments, or 70,
000 pairs of trousers which were uever
to be worn ! Aud where is the elifference,
in point of rationality and utility, be
tween such absurd practices and hoard
ing thousands of guineas and bank notes
which ure never brought forth for the
oeuetit of mankind. There ia no conduct
connected with the pursuits of human
.icings th. t fppeais more absurd t nan
inch praciicea (however common) if ex-
mined by the elietat s of reason.

Sheep that Dive from Cliffs.
John Muir, tne naturaliit of the Sier
ra, writing of tne wild oiie..-p of tlie Sier
ra and of their wi-it-auttieutiouted habit
of diving from precipices aud alighting
on their )i ins, relates tne following an
ecdote :
"At the base of Sheep reck, one of
the winter strongholds ot the Shasta
flocks, there lives a btockraiser who has
tlie advantage of observing the move
ments ot wnd sheep every waiter, aud,
in the course of conv roariou wicii him
on the subject of th, ir diving habits, he
pointed to tho front of a lava headiaUu
about 150 feet hign, which is only 8 or
10 degrees out ot the perpendicular.
' There,' said he, ' I followed a band ol
them fellows to the back of that rock
yonder, and expected to capture them
all, for I thought I had a dead thing on
them. I got behind them on a narrow
bench that runs along the lace 01 un
wall near the t p, and comes to an et d
where they couldn't get away withoui
falling and being killed ; but they
jumped olf, aud lauded all rigut, as if
that were the r. gular thing with thrm.'
' What ! ' said I, ' jumped loO ftet I
Did yon see them do it ? '
" ' No,' he replied, ' I didn't see them
going down, for I was behind them ; hi:
I saw them go off over the Lir.uk, anu
then I went below .uid found then
tracks v here theysuuck on the loot,
debris at the bottom. They sailt-d nghi
off, and lauded on their feet right slue
up. That's the kind of unimai they is
beat- anything else that go-s on loin
legs.'" Teachbr, to boy who has tu be cor
rected frequently: "Can you teil me

his shoulder); "No; but I can ted ym
