ODD FACTS FOR THE SMOKERS.
Information aa to Tobacco and It
Cae by the World.
A history of tobacco has Just been
published by V. S. Pcnn, an English
man, under the title of "The Soverane
Herb." From it some curious facts
can be drawn that will amuse, as well
as instruct smokers.
It appears that the practice of smok
ing was at first a religious rite, and
that It was taken In the sixteenth cen
tury from America to Europe, whence
it spread to Asia. All three modes of
using the weed cigars, pipes and snuff
were found in vogue among the na
tives of America by the earliest dis
coverers. In the narrative of . the first
voyage of Columbus we are told of the
astonishment of the Spaniards at see
ing the natives of San Salvador putting
cigars, or, rather, enormous cigarettes.
On his second voyage the , Islanders
were observed snuffing the powdered
leaf through a hollow cane. On the
mainland pipe smoking was the univer
sal custom, but still retaining much
of a ritualtistic character.
So tobacco went to Spain as clgaTs. to
France (through Jean Xlcot) as snuff,
snd was carried to England with the
pipe by Ralph Lane, Governor of Vir
ginia, on his return home In 158G. Ra
leigh, though he adopted the practice,
was not (as Is often stated) its intro
ducer. England gave It to the Dutch,
and the Hutch carried it to the Spice
Islands and farthest Cathay, so that
almost before the century closed to
bacco had girdled the world. Not, how
ever, without opposition. King James'
futile crusade against the weed had no
effect except to stimulate poets like
Jonson, Ford, Sylvester and smaller
fry to curry court favor by satirical
abuse of smoking and smokers.
Shakspeare never alludes to the prac
tice, and his silence may be Interpret
ed either way. Sultans, shahs, Khalifs
and czars put forth their might against
It, and Pope Urban launched a bill
against Its use, but all in vain; the
frail, withered leaf was stronger than
popes and kings.
Mr. Tenn has omitted a certain fam
ous anecdote associated with this bull
of Urban, and the New York Evening
Post recalls It, as of Incidental Inter
est. On the publication of the bull a
paper was found affixed to the statue
of Pasquln, containing a test In Latin,
which has been thus translated into
English: "Wilt thou break a leaf that
Is driven to and fro, and wilt thou
pursue the dry stubble?" This text U
found In Job xiii., 25. Urban made
proclamation that, if the author would
declare himself, he should receive re
ward. On the next morning the pas
qull was found signed "Job."
Despite both spiritual and secular
fulminations. tobacco held Its own, and
even what few monarchs have done
conquered the church. The present
pope takes snuff, the finest in the
world, which Is specially made for hlni
In Baltimore. But fashions in tobacco
taking, as In other things, have varied.
In the eighteenth century the yipe
sunk in reputation In England and the
snuff box arose. On the continent
snuff had always been aristocratic and
leaders of fashion had rivaled each
other In the costliness and beauty of
their boxes, the exquisite flavor of their
contents and the grace with which the
pinch was inhaled.. England never
quite attained these high levels of ele
gance, and In the nineteenth century
went back to the cigar. The Crimean
war brought In the cigarette, the use
of which the English had learned from
their allies, and in late years the pipe
has come once more Into favor. Buf
A Moving Mountain.
Most people forger, that geology Is not
altogether a history of the past. The
forces that made the mountains are
still going- on. Some mountains are
growing, some are wearing down. Be
cause these processes take a long time
to accomplish visible results, one is apt
to form the erroneous idea that they
have ceased, and that the face of the
earth Is fixed once for all. A case of
geological action so rapid as to be easily
observed Is the moving mountain In
Hunterdon County, New Jersey.
This "mountain" Is a knob, or -mound,
which Is sliding down the sldeif a full
It has obliterated old turnpikes and
roadways, and threatens to slide sud
denly and do great damage. The land
slide already covers twenty-five acres
of one farm, and has. destroyed the
boundaries of another.
At the point where the mound has
torn away from the mountain Is a deep
gulch, In which have been found many
Indian relics. The place is so danger
ous from ledges and banks which
threaten to fall that nobody has dared
explore the cleft thoroughly.
This geological movement has been
so rapid that a new map of the county
may be necessary. Heavy rains, says
the Detroit Free Press, stir the entire
valley to fear lest the whole hill tum
ble and destroy everything in its path.
The capacity of Ireland for sending

80.5 per cent were between the ages of

Not Prevent Operations,
Good surgeons are often men of great
ingenuity, aud ihere are numerous
cases on record of Important and wholly
satisfactory results accomplished with
rude appliances. A writer who was
with the British army In the Soudan,
gives. In a New Vork paper, this Illus
tration of a e'ever adaptation of menus
to a desired end:
After the Battle of Omdurman we
brought back to Abadieb 121 wounded
officers and men. Of this number there
were twenty-oue cases of which an ac
curate diagnosis could not be made by
ordinary surgical means.
By the help of the Roentgen rays,
however, we found the bullet or proved
Its absence In twenty out of these twenty-oue
cases, the remaining case being
so ill with a severe wound In the lung
that It was not considered Justifiable
to examine him at the time.
Of course we had 110 s'.eam engine to
generate electricity for us, and the des
ert heat had dissolved our specially pre
pared candles Into their constituents.
Necessity, however. Is the mother of
Invention, and we had recourse to a
unique method. The pulley of a small
dynamo was connected by means of a
leather strap with the rear wheel of a
tandem bicycle. Having carefully ad
justed the circuit with the storage bat
tery, and also with the voltmeter and
ammeter, a warrant officer took his po
sition on the seat of the bicycle and
commenced pedaling. When fifteen
volts and fourteen amperes were reg
istered, the switch close to the baudlc
of the bicycle was opened aud the
charging of the battery begun.
As the resistance became greater a
sensation as of riding up-hill was ex
perienced by the mau ou the seat, and
the services of an additional orderly
were requisitioned for the frout seat of
As this bicycle practice was generally
Indulged In In a temperature of 110 de

not sorry when, at the end of a half
hour, the switch was turned off aud the
