How Me Studies for HI Local Color A photographic Mlml Processes Noted by Mia Old Employer In India. (E. Kay Uobinson in McClure's Mag azine tor duiy. j While possessing it marvelous fac ulty for assimilating local color with out apparent effort, Kipling neglected no chance and spared no labor in ac quiring experience that might serve a literary purpose. Of the various races of India, whom the ordinary English man jumps together as natives, Kip ling knew the quaintest details re specting habits, language, and dis tinctive ways of thought. I remember well one go-linibcd Pathan, indescri bably filthy, but with magnificent mien anil, features Mahbub Ali, I think, was his name who regarded Kipling as a man apart from another "Sahibs" after each of his wander ings across the unexplored fringes "f Afghanistan, where his restless "spirit of adventure led linn, Mahbub All al ways used to turn up travel-stained, dirtier and more majestic tnan ever for confidential coloquy with "Kup peelen Sahib," bis "friend:" and I more than fancy that to Mahbub Al Kipling owed the wonderful local color which he was able to put into the story of "The Man who Would be King." And Mahbub Ali, peace to bis ashes was only one link in the strange chain of associations that Kipling riveted round himself in luriia. No half note in the wide gamu of native ideas and custom was unfamiliar to hi tr. ; just as he bad left no phase of white life in India unexplored. He knew the un dercurrent of the soldiers' thoughts, in the whitewashed barracks on the niinliiirnt nlain of Mian Mir. better Prices less than half the cost of than sergeant or chaplain. No father conieBSor penetrmeu more aeepty idio the thoughts of fair but frail human ity than Kipling, when the frivolous societv of Anglo-India formed the ob ject of bis inquiries. lhe railway folk" that queer oniony of white, half white and three-quarters black, which remains an uncared-for and discredit able excrescence upon Uritish rule in India, seemed to have unburdened their souls to Kipling of all their grievances, their poor pride, and their hopes. Some of the best of Kiplings work is drawn from the lives of these people : although to the ordinary An glo-Indian, whose social caste restric tions are almost more inexorable than those of the Hindu whom he affects t despise on that account, they are as a sealed bonk. Sometimes, taking a high er flight Kipling Iihb made Viceroys and Cotuitiantlere-in-Cbief, Members of Council and Secretaries to Gov ernment his theme, and the ashes of light that has thrown upon tbe inner workings of the machinery of govern ment in India have been recognized as too truly coloied to be intuitive or aught but the light of knowledge re flected from tbe actual facts. No writer. for instance.could have excited. ai Kipling did, lxird Dunc-rins curios ity as to how the inmost councils of tbe state had thus been photographed. without having somehow or other caught a glimpse of thingR as they were for at least one moment. It is this which is the strongest attribute of Kiplings mind:tbat it photographs as it were, every detail of passing scenes that can have any future util ity for literary iefer nee or allusion He was able, however he might be engaged, to make mental excursions of various kinds while still pursuing the even tenor of lhe business in hand In sporting matters, for instauce, I suppose nothing is morn difficult tban for a man who is no sportsman in the exclusive sense of the men who car ry the scent of the tables and the sawdust of tbe ring with them wher ever they gi to speak to these in their own langimge, along their own lines of thought. Of a novelist who writes good sporting stories, it i considered praise to say that none but a real sportsman could have written it Hut Kipling was no sportsman and and hoireman ; yet his sporting verse always took the sporting world in In dia ( where sport takes precedence of almost every other form of human ac tivity) by storm. WORLD OF SCIENCE. ANOTHER IHIHHINO LINK KHKU. MI8COV- Brattleboro, Vt. 99 WHEN STYLE, FINISH, DURA BILITY AND PRICE ARE CON SIDERED, IT HAS NO EQUAL. It Is a Cross lletween a Klsli, a HI id and a Frog. (From the Savannah, Ga., News.) Herman Kiene baa one of the most remarkable curiosities in his posses sion ever seen in this local it. It ap pears to be a combination of bird, fish and frog, and looks as if it might be a relic of the evolutionary period which failed to complete its evolution. The creaturn was presented to Mr. Kiene about a month ago by three fishermen of the sloop Mary Oilell, who informed him that they caught it in their net while fishing at sea about 50 miles down tbe coast. It was unlike anything they bad seen before. It was evidently a flying fish, but it had bigger wings tban any flying fish they had ever seen or heard of and differed from ordinary flying fish in other particulars. Tbe fishermen recognized tbo fact that they had captured a rare spec imen of something, they didn't know what, and made every effort to pie serve it alive. It was kept in the wa ter until they arrived at the Savannah river, and was then brought up to the city in a vessel filled with salt water. They could not keep the creature alive, however, but it was still breath ing when they brought it into Mr. Kiene's saloon. Knowing him to be something of a curio collector and a taxerdermist as well, they presented to him the fish or animal, whichever it is. Mr. Kiene skinned and stuffed it and now has it on exhibition. In appearance the body is about the shape of a mullet, but with no scales, having inside a tough skin. Tne head is remarkably like that of a frog, being composed of a bony plate, extending back about four inches by two iu width. The most remarkable feature of the thing is its wings, which branch out from its sidts just back of the Stills. The wingB now have the shape ami appearance of a large cabbage leaf, but Mr. Kiene said that when fresh they had twice their present ex pansion, which would give them a reach of 1? inches from the body. Tbe wings are of a thin, rubber-like sub stance, with ribs winding through them. They are very dark. The tail is broad and fan like. Tbe two sets of tins tm the back are connected by a nimy substance, wnicti give them th appearance of salis. Underneath the gills and just ahead of where the wings branch out are two tins about four inches in length each. They are hard and tough, and Mr. Kiene says that when fresh thev had a remarkable resemblance to the leet of a frog, .iitngrtber it is a cu rious creature. It Ijbb been seen by numbers of fishermen, none of whom can identify it. It has bigger wings than any fish ever seen in these wa ters. A careful examination shows that there is no fake about it, and everything is natural and in one piece. necessary in ordinary navigation. The oophone Is pro'iahly one of the great est inventions of the day; a it is des tined to become as much a part of a ship's equipment hh the compass. Tbe larger vessels will have two, and just as there are now distinctive lights on Bhoro there will bo distinctive whistles, so that in a fog not only can vesBcm avoid danger, but they can de termine their locations and go safely into harbors. Ferry-boats will be en abled to go Btraight across to their slips by knowing thoir particular boll or signal at either end. The echo from an iceberg ia plainly apparent. Tbe eophone is the invention of Frank de la Torre, a scientist of Haltimore. He has spent a number of years In perfecting it and hai been aided in the development by the ad vice and criticisms of some of the greatest psysicists of Europe. The eophone can be placed upon any ves sel without alteration in tbe arrange ment of the ordinary chart house; it is not expensive; it adds practically nothing to the weight ar.d it cannot get out of order, as its elllcioncy has been demonstrated by actual trials, i is sure to be univorsally adopted for use on board ship and at all lighthouse signal stations and ferry slips.

Cbritton and J, A. Oooilner of Moscu, Col., have just completed an invention which bids fair to make a sensation in the me chanical world, U is a compound ro tary steam engine, or eugincgwith ro tary valves and pistons, with parts ar ranged to take and out off steam at any point desired. The whole is con fined in cylinders geared to a shaft, the number of cylinders being de pendent on the power required, mod i tied, of course, by the size of the cyl inders. A second and smaller shaft runs through each cylinder above the main shaft. On it revolves a disk containing steam chambers and ports. The cylinders ace so set on the shaft that two of them are taking steam while one is using it expansively. Every ounce of pressure is thus used before any steam is released. Tbe shaft revolves forward or backward by reversing a lever. One thousand revolutions a minute were attained at a recent trial. At this speed it was almost noiseless. A six-horse power engine occupies a space 14 inches 8iuare,two feet high. With it in use, says the inventor, 100 miles an hour expr.?es trains will become common, while miniature engines may propel ro ad vehicles at greater speed.

(ieti 911,000 for His aiouctstrr Ktory. ( Edward K. fiok's Syndicate Letter.) The chief gossip centres around a manuscript, now in London, which came here from America. althoiiL'h hy an English writer. This is Kudyard niiilirir e new American novel, in which he portrays tbe Gloucester fluh er-folk of our MasFacfausetts coast, Kipling sends his manuscripts to bis literary 8Ken here and they are sold from London. In this way he is re lieved of the business end of his work. and oft times secures better prices tban if tie were to conduct the negotiations himself. His only cost for this is ten per cent of tbe price obtained for a manuscript, which is really cheap for the service given. So far as America is concerned, the new novel has been secured for serial publication by Mc- L Jure s Magazine, wtiich will be in the work so soon as it completes An thony Hope's novel, "Phrcso. " Where the novel will tie published in K up land has not yet been decided, al though it is likely that arrangements will be perfected almost any day. The English editors are inclined to be rather cautious of the manuscript of Kipling's. They are as yet unwilling to believe that he can write a long novel, apparently for getting, in this feeling, that his previous long story, the Light That Failed," was, in many re spects, m considerable success. But tbe H,nglisb editor and publisher likes to think over his bargain before he en ters upon iiL Then, too, Kiplings price rate scares him atf. The price for the serial rights of this novel of 50,000, words calls for an outlay of 22 cents per word, or about $11,000 for the manuscript. This is divided be tween the English magazine and the American periodical publishing the story. The English end means about Sl.ri(K), and this is a very large amount n the eyes of a British editor to pay for a story. Hut Kipling is a man who can anoru to stick to Ins price, and generally gets it even- from bis con servative countrymen. B.

Not long ago the Weekly expressed considerable wonder how some of the newspapers opposing Maj. Grout could consistently support him after his nomination, but, with the exception of the Middlebury Register, they have run their arms down their throats, turned themselves wrongside out. and are now howling for a great majority in September. It is such exhibitions as these which have raueed lhe peo ple to lose confidence in the "disinte"- euted tiub'ic spirit and mature judg ment of tho press. " When a paper howls for three months that a candidate is utterly unfit for the office to which he aspires, that he is baiked by rings, and a thoroughly corrupt political ele ment, is there any lielter reason why he should be elected tban there was wh ha should b nominated. Will someone attempt an answer to this interrogatory. (From the New Vork Herald.) Possibly there is no greater terror among the niHny met with at oca than a fog. The helplessness of our har bor boats and the clamor of tbe bells and whittles tlurine a heavv W in New Vork harbor L'lvp one some idea of this nightmare of the ocean: but when a fog closest down upon a vessel at tea the most reckleFS t'sntain pro ceeds cautiously and ansiouly. I ne probability, of collision and wreck due to fog has been accented as a sort of unavoidable evil which must become greater as the number and speed of vessels increase. But the inventive genius of man could not let such a condition of affairs continue without attempting to do away with it, and there has been perfected lately a simple instrument. called the eophoue.by which the direction from which a sound proceeds can be deter mined with absolute accuracy in foe or darkness. The simplest description of the in strument is that it consists of two bell mounted sound receivers, sen- arated by a central dianhratrm. The sound receivers are connected to the two ears, and when pointed direetlv at a source of sound, the noise is the same in each ear. When turned away the sound is heard in only one ear. un shipboard the sounds catch in and divide in part of tbe instrument extends above the top of the tbart house and the instrument made turned from below to a point in any desired direction. Tho eophone has mery roints for which numerous ex periments, lasting over several years, have been reouired, m order to deter mine the bett form, esneciallv with the sounding tubes and car pieces. Various refinements such as micro phones and devices adding to the com plication, but not improving the use, have been eliminated. To illustrate the character of the trials which have been made with the eophone, one was placed on the light house tender Lilac, and in a dense fog a whistling bony was picked iuo at a distance of a mile anil its direction in dicated correctly, although every effort was made to confuse the observer by a change of course. Oidinanly there is great difficulty in puking up a whistling buoy in a fog Another test, showing tbe merits of the eophone in a striking way, was made by blind folding the observer and then chasing another vessel by sounds of its whistle, the vessel nur- eued doubling and twisting in every possible way. Ao difficulty whatever whs found in following the vessel un der such circumstances. Spar buovs can be picked up from the echo of the boat's whistle. A vessel running close to land would get tbe echo from her own wbietle in case there were hills or tall bouses. On dark nights the ripple of oars oj the slight noise of a torpedo boat would be accurately located by lhe eophone, co that it is as Etlraordinarv Blilu-tfraftlng.

Tbe most serious was the complete flay ing of the ootsitte of his leg ftom the ankle to the upper part of the thigh. The musclea which make up the calf bad been torn away and thus denuded of skin, mtipcles, veins and arteries, it was at first thought that only amputation of the leg would save bis life. I)r Frank L McKee decided on a novel method to save tbe leg and his life. It was by grafting healthy skiu over the denud ed part, but the operation seemed im practical as the extent of the injury made 012 square inches to cover which it was estimated would require 1 grafts.

Dr. Philip C. Knapp, describing the origin of nervous diseases in tbe Century, says that many of them are due,directly or indirectly to tbe action of different forms of bacteria upon the membrances that cover tbe brain. Other forms of a nervous disease are now thought to be of infectious na ture, due to some specific organism. O there still are due to the action of poisons produced by tbe germs of oth er diweaHHes. There is, for example, a fotm of p-iralysis which not infre quently follows diphtheria, which is due, not to any weakness of tbe nervous system, but to the action of the diph theretic poison upon the perpihera nerves. Similar forma of paralysis may follow small pox, typhoid fever, pneu monia or influenza. Many of the dis eases of the spinal cord are of similar origin. Locomoter ataxia and general paralvsis.two common and fatal diseaa es.are in most cases the result one of these infectous diseases.
