Manufacturers Ideal Project for Uniting the West VII- laKewlth the Fire District. -A Coinbl nation Hose Care Idea of BnlllrT Gal-vln. Since the West Brattleboro fii-e there Iiur been some agitation for an mcor noratioD at that rillatre with our lire diutrict. The scheme could easily be made practicable by a legislative act inmosinir no the . people there their share by taxation of the department expenses now about ,U00 ayear.Tben by the location of alarm boxes in fjen tieville and at proper points in the west viliaee, steamers oould get there fully as quick as to steyville. It such a chaoii i made and whetb it ib or not, the department ought to be changed into what is recognized as a rogular paid department, with three men and two horses kept constantly at the engine house. Then a large part of the " call men,-' particularly that part that is dead wood now, could be dispensed with, and the result be little if any increase of expense, and at an actually reduced : expense if West Brattleboro is, added.' , Rutland's paid department with two stations, costs only 87,000 a year and ours with one ought to be kept up at 80,000. It is the adoption of such a system that has reduced Burl'ton's insurance rates to three-fourths of ours. Very "likely the Insurance Exchange will make its adoption the condition of the reduc tion; forjwhich a movement is now in progress. - fJailitt liaivin proposes anoiuer mea which would doubtless help in that direction and certainly add to'thejnrn ciency nf our equipment, aud that is the putting in or a combination nose wagon, carrying about 1,200 feet of hose, two 10 gallon chemical tanks, with six unuerrding Tanas noiuing about three allons each, with which men could go to worK instanriy on reaching the scene of a fire, and eight times out of 10 quench it in the time the host in beink law tor use in case it is too big for the jchemical appara tus. This would sare most of the wa ter damage, which for several years has been the main part of what the insurance comnanies have paid here. The idea, which isfentirely Mr.Gal vin's, is an excellent one. No such wacons are made anywhere, but could he constructed to order here. The cost. he thinks, would be about $1,000, Three times now witnin a few weens we have sent an engine to other places to save property. ' Uf course. we ought not to refuse such calls from neighbors, but there ought to be an understanding by which the actual cost of such exeditions should be re imbursed. THE INTELLIGENCE OF ANIMALS.

So, like wise, in protecting tuemseives ukuidbi. morbific causes, as infection, tney in f-tinctivelv resort to sued measures as science has shown to be the ir.ore efti cRcious: namely, cleanliness. They show a remarkable degree off clairvoy ance as to death, time of deliveiy of their young, woaning, etc, kind of fore seeing in whicb a man is aoneient. Dogs and cats, Hunermg from clitor, dered stomach, oat certain grasses which have the effect of purging and vomiting. The dog al9o eats fat with avidity when in need of purgation but abstains from it in nis normal conat ions. The horse will eat fat , for the same purpose.and earth, coal dust, etc., when' suffering from worips. Cattle seek certain herbs when ill medic- nal her'-s.sucti as they would not 'at whon well. Horses and other animals. when sutfering from chronic rheunia tisni, expose themselves to the sun. Docs and other animals seek water in which to bathe their wounded limbs. M. Delaunay.a French writer, lias recorded many instances of in stinctive therapeutics among the lower animals when sulTering from fe ver,infection,woun(ls,etc. He relates the case of a dog that on being stung by a viper, held the part in running water for days, until it finally recov ered. He instances also the case of a dog that was badly injured by being run ovec by a carriage, and that re mained lying in a brook during Ihree weeks. The uiiIitihI recovered. A ter rier was severely wounded in his right eye. It secluded itself from the light and heat, and ate a light, abstemious diet. The wounded eye was treated with spittle applied by itself by means of its paw, which it licked on its upper surface and then applied it to the wounu. This it did repeatedly until the wound healed. The cat shows similar sagacity in treating its wounds. M. Delauuuy relates instances in which his animal, which in its normal state exhibits dread of water, when wounded, has sought the stream, in which to bathe and irrigate the wounded part The same is true of savages, but slightly removed in the scale of being from the animal. The chimpanzee, when wounded, arrests bleeding by compres sion and dresses the part with leaves land grasses. Low-bred savages dres9 their wounds in water, lie in running water, abstain from food, und drink nothing but water when suffering from fever. Wnen infectious fevers as small pox, break out in llieir camp the camp with all Us appurtences, is burned and its inhabitants removed to fresher and more wholesome quarters. These and other similar psychical phenomena, showing uncouscious will ing to the fulfilment of . conscious end, are put by the psychologist in the category of "consensual impulses" a phrase which should deceive oo one, since, whatever phraesology the phe nomena may be disgusised, their psy chical origins and character remain to proclaim to us a moet wonderful and awe-inspiring truth: namely, that mind is the genius of the wnrlJ, the power thst designs, tnolds into forms and heing.and determines the destiny of all things.
