"We find in the Sanitary Neics of recent date a remarkable article under the title of "Artificial Child Incubation.1' At first the idea conveyed to the ordinary mind is that the subject is to be burles qued, but a careful reading of the article leaves the impression that the matter is not only no joke but a most interesting and important reality. It must be understood, in the first place, that there is no principle involved in this so-called "child incubation" that can in any manner disturb or interfere with certain ancient and satisfac tory rules governing the increase of the human family, as one might suppose. The idea, is that, after birth, the child is capable of wonderfuld development bjT a proper application of artificial heat. The experiments that have given rise to the discussion of the subject are said, by the Glasgow Mail, to have occurred in France, under the supervision of Dr. Travernier, who irabided the idea from arti ficial chicken incubation. This physician was attached to a hospit al for foundlings, and was annoyed at the large number of puny infants that died on his hands before the' were six months old. The ma jority of the children received at the hospital were weak and sickly, and he resolved to try what arti ficial incubation conld do for them. He constructed an incu bator after his own notion and began a series of experiments the result of which was indeed re markable. The incubator was a box covered with a glass slide, furnished with a soft woolen bed, and kept at the temperature of 86 degrees, Fahrenheit, by the aid of hot water. He selected as e object of his first experiment a miserably-made infant, one that had come into the world at an in judiciously early period. This infant was placed in the incuba tor, provided with a nursing bottle, and kept in a dark room. To the surprise of the doctor it ceased to cry on the second day after it was placed in the incubator, and al though it liad previously been a preternaturally sleepless child, it sank into a deep and quiet sleep. The child remained in the incu buator about eight weeks, during which time it never once cried, and never remained awake except when taking nourishment. It grew rapidly, and when at the expiration of sixty days, it was removed from the incubator, it presented the appearance of healthy infant of at least a 3Tear old. Delighted with the success of the experiment Dr. Tavernier next selected an ordinary six-months-old infant addicted to the usual pains and colic, and exhibit ing the usual fretfulness of French infants. This child conducted itself while in the incubator precisely as its predecessor had done. It never cried; it spent its whole time in sleep, and ijjgrcw as if had made up its mind to embrace the career of a professional giant. After a six weeks' stay in the incubator it was removed and weighed; during this brief period it had doubled its weight. It had become so strong and healthy that it resembled a child three years old, and it could actually walk when holding on to a convenient piece of furniture So convinced was Dr. Tavernier of the advantages of child incuba tion, that he proceeded to con struct an incubator of the capaci ty of 400 infants, in which he placed all of the SCO babes who were then in the hospital. One of these died from a constitutional disease and another was taken away. The others were kept con tinually in the incubator for six months, when they had to be re moved because they had outgrown their narrow beds. The result will, says the Glasgow Mail, seem almost incredible to persons wko are unfamiliar with the reputation of Dr. Tavernier and have not seen the report made to the French government by a select committee of twelve physicians. "When the ofeiWrsn were placed in tbe large incubator their average ages were eight months and three days, the youngest being less than twelve hours old and the eldest not more than eleven months. The average weight was sixteen pounds, but at the end of six months the average weight was twenty-four pounds, "and," says the paper quoted "there was not one that would not have been supposed by a casual observer to be at least three years old." In other words, six months of Dr. Tavernier's artificial incuba tion did as much in the way of de veloping the foundlings as three years cf ordinary life would have accomplished. "Within one week after leaving their hothouse we are told, these children were big and strong enough to walk. Here, indeed, is something for people to contemplate; and in these days, while prize fighters are in such de mand, somebody might with profit go into the business of breeding and "incubating" giants in com parison with whom Mace's Maori and the Salt Lake sloirger would be as infants. The Origin of the Name Texas. On a subsequent visit Houston told me the legend of the origin of the name "Texas," as he had it from an Indian chief. I wish I could give his very words instead of my memory of them. A long time ago, when the Spaniards overran and plundered Mexico, some of the red men left them and came towards the rising sun. They crossed the Rio Grande, and not knowing what lay before them entered upon the great salt marshes. They traveled many das and found but little sweet water or game. The weather grew hot and the little streams dried up and the grass withered, and many old men and women and children died of thirst. One day, after many weeks of weary walking, a party of young braves, who had been sent ahead to reconnoiter, came running back and said. "We have found water come; on!" This good news put new life into their veins, and although nothing could be seen but a dry, flat, bald prai rie, the scouts were standing still, calling and beckoning to them and pointing toward something apparently at their feet. At length the' reached the spot where the braves arc standing. Fifty feet below them the limpid waters of the Colorado sang a melody to Heaven. Beyond, far as even an Indian vison could reach, stretched a great expanse. The tall mosquile grass, yielding to the breath of the gentle south wind, rolled in vast billows of verdure under the ardent summer sun. Little"islands" of mesquite trees dotted this srassv sea, and herds of buffalo and deer grazed in peaceful ignor ance of an enenvy's approach. Forgetting hunger, fatigue and even thirst in this delicious vision the red men fall upon their knees and cry out "Tehas! Tehas!' "Tehas'is the nearest approach I can make in English to the cor rect pronunciation of Texas, and means as the narrator explained to me Paradise. A. J2. Jf., in Philadelphia Times. The lapse of a very few years will show that the western plains cannot be depended on to make meat cheap forever. Cattle ranges are no longer illimitable. The day when an indefinite increase in the size and number of herds was. possible has already passed. Stock men will have to begin very soon filling up little chinks of ter ritory instead of ranging at will over whole counties and states. The limit of the ability ol the country to support beeves has not been reached, but new and more careful methods of ranching must gradually be introduced. These will certainly not be less expo sive than the methods now vocrue, so that the averajre annual price of fat cattle must tend up ward. After giving the OREGON BLOOD PQRIF1ER a fair trial, I have found, that as blocd-puriGcr and reconatrtict or, it is what it claims to be, nnd gladly recofiun ended. JL LEvixaftOK. Made Them Even. 'Arrested for carrying a pistol, was lie?" asked a magistrate of an officer, referring to a gentleman who had just been arraigned. "Let's see the pistol." The weapon was produced and handed to the judge, who examined it and asked: "Where dii you get it?' "Bought it at a hardware .store." ""What did it cost?" "Fifteen dollars' "Fine implement. How'll you swop?" and the judge drew out a pistol and handed it to the pris oner. "Take 10 to boot." "All right. I'll fine you $10. That makes us even." From the Blue mountains, near Weston, to the Columbia river forty miles on the west, says the Xeader, there is an almost un broken stretch of wheat fields, which never in extent or promise approached its present hopeful condition. A preacher, whose congregation had begun to fall off somewhat, had it intimated that he would discuss a family scandal the fol lowing Sunday. As a conse quence the church was crowded. The minister's subject was Adam vs. Eve. In Massachusetts there is one divorce to twenty-one marriages; in Vermont, New Hampshire and Connecticut about one to fourteen; in Rhode Island one to twelve; in Maine one to eijrht.

They include various trades and professions. Some ol them keep great herds of cattle and make large amounts of money from these splendid pasture lands. A species of spider has been discovered on the African coast, the long firm web of which very closely resembles yellow silk, and is said to be very nearly as good as the product of silkworms. The matter has been investigated by the Lyons silk merchants with fa vorable results, and there seems to nothing to prevent acclimating the insect in France. SYMPTOMS OF A DISEASED LIYER.
