NEW THEORY OF THOUGHT. Thinks Tlutt Thought Are Vibrations of Itlmr, A Light. In his new work, entitled "The Drones Must Die," Mr. Max Nordau gives the following as the opinion of one of his characters Regarding the properties of "ether," that subtle force which Is belioved to convey the vibra tions set up by wireless telegraphy from one jioliit to another: He held "that thoughts are vibra tions of ether, exactly like warmth, electricity, and light. Their sum in the universe is unvarying, like that of nil other forces They are diffused In space like rays of light or electric cur rents. Millions and billions of various vibrations strike Incessantly upon the human brain, constituting the Innumer able thoughts that have been thought lu all the stars, in all the depths of space, now. op in aeons of Inconceiv able remoteness. If a brain be prepared for a vibration of a certain duration and wave-length, an equal vibration Is aroused within it, and the thought which this vibration represents, be comes conscious. In the ascend ini portion of tin circular course, which we call deve1iimont, the brain be comes capablo of ever shorter and more rapid vibrations; In the descend ing portion It becomes coarser and more Hlugglsh. Fvery Invention, ev ery discovery, every enlargement of the bounds of knowledge Is due to the attainment by some brain of that de gree of vibratory capacity, which en ables It to fee clns the corresponding vi bration of thotiit flashed upon it from space, and to etrvert It into conscious ness. Hence It toJlows that no thought originates In the bram) that thinks it: for every thougnt ha been thought be fore, and will be thought again and again to all eternity; every brain acts like a relay in an electric system; It receives an Impulse from eternity, and retransmits it to eternity after its pass age. The whole ocean of possible thoughts surges round us, but we are only conscious of them to which our brains are sensitive. The differences In wisdom are differences in the vibra tory capacity of die molecular mass of the brain. Character, temperament, a talent, are the xpression of wave lengths and periods of vibration. Fv ery individual is & rhythm. Attraction and repulsion between individuals are caused by the harmony or dissonance of their rhythms, their re-enforcing or disturbing effect upon each other." CLEVELAND BROKE RECORD. Ex-President Cleveland has broken the record for bass catching at Middle lie pulled In 125 pounds of tlsh. while Capt. "Rob" Evans caught forty-live bass from one to two pounds In weight. English HUduoi In Egypt. One principle deserves special notice. It Is that of using Jlnglish heads but Egyptian hands, says the Spectator. In practice this means tbc policy of never putting an Englishman into any isist which could be Just as well tilled by a native. In other wonls, the English man Is only used In the administration where he is indispensable. Where he is not, the native, as Is only Just and right, is employed. The outcome of this Is that Lord Cromer's work In Egypt has been carried out by "a body of otllcials who certainly do not exceed 100 in number, and jalght possibly, If the figures were rigorously examined. be somewhat lower." Lord Cromer adds, however, that thcse 100 havi ibeen selected with tb greatest care." In fact, that principle has been never employ an Englishman unless It is necessary In the interests of good government to do so, lmt then employ a Urst-class man. The result Is that tho Inspiring force In every department of the Egyptian nU' ' ,lrst H:,ss 1'ltHsh brnbi. and vet the natives are not depressed by being deprived of their fchare of the ad ministration. The Egyptians, that Is. do not feci the legitimate, grievaiici that Is felt by the Tunisians and Al gerians when they see even little posts of a couple of huudred a year tilled by Frenchmen.

Th Old Lesson Hooka. When a child-our ancestral child, of course had done with his hornbook he was presently harassed by some dread ful little spelling book or another, says Good Words. One of the piomt-rs In this line was called "A jietee schole of spelling and wrltinge Engllshe," da ted l!i80. As a later effort came 'The Compleat Schoolmaster," which was obligingly composed for the general good-see preface by John It rooks- bank, minister, residing In Jerusalem court. Fleet street. This "Compleat Schoolmaster" Is a night-mare in o parts, cither of them calculated to drive the learner crazy. In the Hrst he was forced to struggle In mortal combat with such words as spleyngth, sprawygld and squewagls, which are not Welsh, however much they may look like It. In the second lie procesled from comparatively sim ple sentences, as "Reg the big buffle bag and let It ly on the bog." to such ompllcated efforts as "lie was dilbl'd md drabl'd 'cause he grubl'd where they hrafd," or. "Now he wabls, 'cause he was h.ickl'd with klbls and cobls." There are twenty-four pages of this stuff, which Is all the more aggravat ing because one feels an Intense and unreasoning desire to get to the mean ing of It. Why did he, whoever he was, go and grubl where they bad a fancy to brabl, and what came of it at last V Also, are those mysterious klbls and cobls chilblains, or are they peb bles?
