A German ornithologist, Dr. A. 0.
E. Baldamus, lias specimens of tho
nests and eggs of 2,000 species of
birds, mostly European.
It has been recently proven that
earth worms are capable of regenerat
ing tissue, large pieces cut from their
bodies being replaced by new
The discovery was recently an
nounced of a fossil air-breathing ani
mal of an earlier age than any before
known a scorpion from the upper
Silurian deposits of Sweden. A cock
roach's wing plating from a still more
remote period the middle Silurian
has since been found in France.
Flying fish do not fly is the asser
tion of Dr. K. Mobius, a German zool
ogis. The muscles of their pectoral
fins are too small to sustain the
weight of the body in the air. The
impulse to which they owe their long
shooting passage through the air is
delivered while they are still in the
water, by the powerful masses of
muscles on both sides of their body.
A Quinine Substitute. The doun
dake plant (Ccplmlina esculents,
Sebum; lias been described to the
Paris Academy of Sciences as an as
tringent and febrifuge capable of re
placing quinine, as well as a dyA
yielding a beautiful j'ellow color. It
grows in West Africa, and resembles
the Morinda of the South Sea Islands
quite closely in many respects. Its
active principle is doundakine.
A New Food. In the seed of the
cotton-tree, of which several varieties
are cultivated in Bolivia, a corres
pondent of the French academy an
nounces the discovery of the richest
of all known grains in nilrogeneous
substances. lie is convinced that tho
flour of this seed is destined to be
come an important article of food. A
paste made from it may serve as a
substitute for milk.
Prompting Eye - Glasses. The
"microphotoscope," devised by a
schoolmaster of the Isle of Man, is a
pair of spectacles in the rims of which
are several micro-photographs, each
provided with a little magnifying lens.
The instrument is worn as an ordin
ary pair of spectacles, and the wear
er may at any time see tho pictures
by slightly turning bis eyes. A public
speaker may thus have in view pho
tographs of his notes; a traveler,
maps or tables of information ; a de
tective, a list of criminals sought;
and so on.
Temperature Perception. A Ger
man physiologist,Prof. Eulenberg,has
found that different parts of the body
are very unequally sensitive to differ
ences of heat and cold, the sense of
temperature being most acute in the
forehead aud the back of the hands,
and least active in the back and the
upper part of the abdomen. At the
former spots differences of about a
third of a Fahrenheit degree were dis
tinctly perceived, but at the other
two points differences were only de
tected when reaching nearly two de
grees. Chemistry for the Kitchen. Mr.
YV Mattien "Williams states that he is
making experiments to learn the effi
ciency of the diastase of malt, and
also that of various acids, in convert
ing vegetable tissue into dextrine and
grape sugar. "When a process for ef
fecting such conversion is made
generally available our food sup
plies will be greatly extended.
Turnips and similar vegetables
will become delicate diet for in
valids; horse-beans will be better
than beef; and delicate biscuits and
fancy pastry, as well as ordinary
bread, will be produced from saw
duEt and wood-shavings plus a little
leguminous flour. This may be done
now. Chemists have long been able
to transform old shirts and rags into
sugar in their laboratories. It has
yet to be done in the kitchen.
Lacustrine Revelations. Since
1873 no less than 19,599 relics of the
Proto-IIelvetians, as the prehistoric
lake-dwellers of Central Europe have
been named, have been dug from the
beds of lakes Neuchatel and Bienne.
Swiss museums have received 13,078
of these objects, while Dr. Goss, of
Neuville, has nearly 6,000. Dr. Goss
finds evidence that the progress of
this vanished race was marked by
three successive stages an age of
stone, an age of bronze, and an age of
iron. There may also have been an
age of copper, preceding that of
bronze. Remains of villages of the
stone age are most abundant thir
teen having been found in lake
Bienne, with only two of the bronze
age but those belonging to the era
of metals are much more extensive.
Besides the stone and metal imple
ments, various wooden objects have
been found, such as canoes, an ox
jyoke, fragments of tables and benches
toy ooats, nammers anu spaaes. jo
complete dwelling has yet been found
among the villages of the lakes, but
charred planks and timbers remain
to tell of the mysterious conflagration
in which perished a remarkable and
Daubing the Flunkeys.
The late John Heneage Jesse, the
well-known author, had an aversion
amounting to a positive 'phobia, for
the British Jeames. He has been
known to stand in St. James' street
on a drawing-room day, at the edge
of the curb, and with the end of his
stick, which he dipped into the road
puddle, daub the imaculate stocking
of the passing flunkeys, who, as he
well knew, dare not move from their
stations, accompanying the act with
much opprobrious language.
Tho Alliterative Mania.
The advantage supposed to inhere
in an alliterative head-line or title
page is not a device of the modern
news editor. It seems to have been
worked for all there was in it by the
religious tract writers who flourished
so plentifully in Cromwell's time.
In 1626 some one published in Lon
don a pamphlet with the rather start
ling title: "A Most Delectable,
Sweet, Perfumed Nosegay for God's
Saints to Smell At." Later on an
other peculiar man presented the
reading world with "Snuffers for
Divine Love," and "APair of Bellows
to Blow Off the Dust Cast Upon John
Fay." Cromwell's time, however,
was most noted for queer title-pages.
A work on charity, written then, was
entitled, "Hooks and Eyes for Be
lievers' Breeches." Another author,
in his attempt to elevate poor, human
nature, called his labor in that direc
tion, "High-Heeled Shoes for Dwarfs
in Holiness," and justthen "Crumbs
of Comfort for tho Chickens of the
Covenant," were thrown out to tempt
the literary appetite. A Quaker, as
serious as quaint, who was impris"-
oned on one of the charges so easily
through a hole in the wall of an East
ern vessel, known among men by tho
name of "Samuel Fish." About this
time another book, with a queer and
ludicrous title-page, appeared "The
Spiritual Mustard Pot to Make the
Soul Sneeze with Devotion." Others
stood on "Salvation's Vantage
Ground, or Leaping Stand for Hea
venly Believers," and fired "A Shot
at the Devil's Headquarters Through
the Tube of the Cannon of the Coven
ant," which was said in the preface
to be a language so plain that the
most "illiterate reprobate could not
fail to understand." A "Reaping
Hook, "Well Tempered for the Stub
born Ears of the Coming Crop, or
Biscuits Baked in the Oven of Char
ity, Carefully Conserved for the
Chickens of the Church, the Sparrows
of the Spirit and the Sweet Swallows
of Salvation," startles lovers of the
curious to-day. But to cap the cli
max of the odd title-page mania an
ambitions author declares his book to
be 5'Seven Sobs of a Sorrowful Soul
of Sin ; or the Penitential Psalms of
the Princely Prophet David, Whcre

It was an Arizona man. With
steady hand he filled the can ; for, as
was usual with him, he filled the
chalice to the brim. Appalled, af
frighted and dismayed to see the
wholesale liquor raid, the gentlemen
behind the bar, in trembling tones,
"Look liyar! You are mistaken,
pard, I'm thinking. That isn't cider
that you're drinking!"
The stranger's fare grew dark and
sad, he locked as though ft had it
bad. In tones of grieving, mild re
buke, he said, with :i reproachful
"You're mighty jihl stranger.
