horrors and sufferings prompted a pro
fouud study of military medicine and
surgery in Surgeon General Ham
moud directed all medical officers of
the army "to collect and forward to the
office of the surgeon general all speci
mens of morbid anatomy, surgioal or
medical, which may be regarded as
valuable, together with projectiles and
foreign bodies removed, and such other
matters as may prove of interest." The
office of the surgoon general possessed
about 850 books on medical subjects at
that time, when congress legislated to
appropriate $5,000 yearly for the pur
chase of reference books to be used in
the compilation of tho "Medical and
Surgical History of the War." In 1865,
Dr. John S. Billings, U. S. A., was
placed in charge of the embryo enter
prise and his wide, grasping mind in
stantly seized this opportunity to lay
the foundation of a national medical
library. The success of this scheme, un

curator for 80 years has been phenom

has been in charge ot tho library, which
at present contains on its shelves 120,
000 volumes of bound books, and more
than 200,000 pamphlets, besides a valu
able collection of atlases of plates and
engravings, and is acknowledged to be
"the most complete collection of medi

The story of a New Zealand sheep
designed for the London market may be
very briefly told. It is taken from the
run to the slaughter house, killed,
dressed and transferred to the cooling
room. The skin and superfluous fat are
retained; after ten hours' cooling the
carcass goes into the refrigerating room
for 86 hours. Thence it goes to the stor
ing room, and when it has been envel
oped in its cotton "shirt" and labeled
is ready for its journey over sea. The
steamers which bring the meat to us
through the tropics have, of course, to
be fitted with refrigerating appliances,
and our sheep takes its place among
thousands of others, some of the boats
being fitted to carry as many as 70,000
carcasses atone time.
There are 88 vossels engaged in the
trade, capable of transporting 6,700,000
sheep per annum. Arrived in the
Thames, the barges come alongside the
vessel, and tho sheep is transferred to a
cold storage station. Here it may lie for
weeks or for months if necessary, so

The Fare and the Finn.
A good story is told of a certain
Scotch bailie who, on rising oue morn

self and bad but a few miuutes in which
to keep a most important appointment.
Making a hurried toilot, he rushed from
the house and hailed a passing jehu.
"Drive mo, " he said to the man, "to
tho courts of justice with all possible
speed. Ou no account delajr ou misat."
Faithful to his iustructious, the
driver urged his steed to its very ut
most. Faster and faster they went un
til, after au exciting drive, he deposit
ed his fare at his destiuatiou in time
for the appointment, but not before he
had damaged a passing vehicle in his
mad career Tho bailio, on alighting,
banded him his fare, with tho addition
of a substantial tip, and then, to the
mau 's astonishment, pressed 80 shillings
into his baud, at the same time saying:
"Here's 80 shillings, my man. You
will be brought before me tomorrow for

GERMAN PROFESSORS.
They Aro Very Learned, but They Art
Also Very Ilumun.
The fact that tho German professors
a? a rule do not pay much attention to
their personal appoaranco does not by
any means indicate that they are in
sensible to their high social position.
Indeed, oue of thoir marked characteris
tics, which they sharo with their coun
trymen of all grades, is their keen sense
of rani; and station. Appointments to
tulversity positions aro eagerly sought,
and to obtain them often iuvolvosa hard
struggle and yoars of tedious waiting.
When a man has worked bis way up
gradually through tho various grades of
doctor, lehrer, oberlnlircr, privat do
ceut, ousserordcutlichor professor, or
dontlicher professor, geheimrat and ex
oelleuz, his conception of his own im
portance is not likely to decrease, espe
cially in a country where great defer
ence is paid to rank. IIo is likely to ro
seut anything, therefore, that ebows
apparent indifference or contempt for
his social importance. Au illustration
of this was au experience of an Ameri
can ladv of my acquaintance. She went
to call on a professor iu order to get his
signature to her university book. Kither
from thoughtlessness or ignorance sho
made no special toilet for the occa
sion, and, wcrst of all, appeared with
not only her gloves, but also a small
package in her bund. Tho h arued mau
was not only exceedingly cool, but posi
tively rude iu his manner, yet tho next
day, on meeting her under other cir
cumstances, he was almost overpower
iugly gracious and polite.
A call upon a professor, whatever
may bo the occasion, is a very formal
matter, and an examination is such a
solemn ceremony that tho prescribed
rules for dress aud couduct nro almost
as numerous and strict us those for a
presentation at tho court of tit. James,
No student would dare endanger his
success by not driving around to tho
professor's houso in n carriage of a cer
tain class, and arrayed iu full evening
dress, with high hat and whito gloves.
As an illustration of tho type of pro
foosnr who fnllv aiioreciates his own
" learning aud importance ta.io this in
stance : A certain learned man wuoso
name is familiar ou both continents was
recently lecturiug on the history of
philosophy. When ho came to consider
the state of philosophy at the present
day, be concluded his lecture with tbu
remark, "At present thero aro really
only two philosophers of any note iu
Germany tho other ouo lives iu Ber
lin." Now this same distinguished scholar
has received the titlo of excellent,
which is very ran ly conferred on a pro
fessor. Ho is connected with one cf tho
smaller universities, and r.uce received
a flattering invitation to go to Derlin,
but his own university and townspeople
made such strenuous efforts to retain
their celebrity that, in his own mind
at least, tbo question of his going or
staying had become one of national im
portance One day somo workmen wero

be was naturally much disturbed by tho
noise. Hastily throwing open the win
dow, ho called out angrily to tho work
men, "If don't go away and stop
that'noiso, I shall go to Berlin after all."
Tho fact that tho German professor is
not merely a pure intelligence, nor yet
always aschoene seelo (beautiful soul),
as his countrymen say, might ho illus
trated in numerous other ways. Among

Throiifli the Dense Forest Follaeo A
Shot ami a Tumble Into a Swamp Bole
Jiifst In the Nick of Time.
Mr. Herbert Ward relates in Cassell's
Magazine eoiuo exciting experiences
that befell him in the course of an ele
phant bunt in the forests of Mobunga,
a district near the upper Kongo river.
This country, which is inhabited by
Mobunga cnBuibals, bad not been visit
ed by a white mau before. Having been
successful in reaching a favorite ground
for elephants, his guides left the hunter
at midnight, returning in their canoe.
"After floundering about for some
time," he says, "I at length found an
elephant path. The cane was trodden
into the sodden ground about four feet
in width, and the path led straight
across the middle of the bamboo patch.
On either side of the path the cane grew
so thickly that I fouud it almost impos
sible to penetrate. A storm was raging.
I distinctly heard elephants forcing
their way through tho forest iu order
evidently to reach some open space
where they might be safo from falling
trees.
"Iu the interm'tteiit flashes of light
ning I occasiouaily got a gnmpso oi
their great, ghostly forms approaching
the cane patch, aud as the storm in
creased in fury the sound of elephants'
stampeding iu all directions through the
thick mass of bamboos impressed me in
a most uncomfortablo manner. Each
moment I feared being trampled. The
floundering, heavy footsteps occasional
ly seemed to approach within a few
yards of me, aud I distinctly heard thu
frightened squeals of baby elephants as
they plunged aud stumbled in tho
swamp.
"The storm ceased as suddenly as it
came, aud iu the subsequent lull there
was a constant dripping of wati r iu tho
forest and the sound of falling branches.
Tho elephants appeared to be standing
motionless, and the air was ouce again
filled with the eternal musio of mosqui
toes.
" With tho first indication cf dawn
my spirits rose, and I carefully wiped
the mud from my riflo with tho ragged
sleeve of my shirt. While it was still
too dark to distinguish the surround
ings, I could plainly bear elephants
stirring iu all directions. Crawling
somo little distauce along the sloppy
path, I suddenly distinguished tho out
line of au elephant s bead and bacu cut
ting sharp against the gray morning
sky. It was impossiblo in that light to
ostimato distance.
"Creeping cautiously forward, I was
startled two or three times by a low,
rumbling tord peculiar to elephants,
and which is iu somo way connected
with their digestion. The cSno patch
appeared to bo a perfect haven of ref og"
for elephants during the storm, for on
every side thero camo audiblo evidences
of their presence.
"When within what I judged to ho
20 paces of in y" elephant, 1 was just able
to discern bis ears, flapping spasmod
ically to bent off the mosquitoes and
suud flies that hovered around lnm, ami
his trunk swinging listlessly among tbo
trampled cano, as if in search of some
thing edible. Gradually luottced a cer
tain restiveuess, as though the auittii.il
was conscious of danger. Raising lii.i
trunk in tbo air, bo sniffed iu vaiio.i.i
directions until bis btad was tumid
straight toward me.
Realizing that my presenco was ois-
covered and that thero was not uu in
stant to lose, I took a steady aim at bis
left shoulder and fired. Tho recoil of
my eight boro riflo knocked mo back
ward, aud as I struggled iu tbo cano en
tangled slush, enveloped in smoke, I
was conscious of a deafening uproar. Tbo
riflo report echoed strangely through tho
forest, aud the startled elephants charg
ed madly forward iu every direction,
crashing through tho deuso foliage liko
giant locomotives.
"By tho time I repaired my feet ard
had run aside to be clear lrom ttio
smoke I fouud my elephant slowly ris
ing from the ground By this timo I
was within 15 paces of the beast and
fully realized the necessity of firing a
fatal shot. Trembling with excitement,
I fired poiui blank at the animal's fore
head, and, quickly stooping below tho
smoke, I caught sight of a jot cf blood
spurting from tho wouud, while the
ponderous Least slowly sauk to tbo
ground again dead.
"Reloading iu haste, I took two snap
shots at uu elopbaut rushing past me,
without other effect, however, than to
stop bis progress. He stood for u mo
ment gazing at me and twitching his
tail. Owing to wet or dirt I fouud diffi
culty in opening my rifle, and in spito
of frantic efforts I could not make tho
levcf act. I can well rocall tho feeling
of blank despair when the wounded
beast, with coiled trunk aud ears erect,
wished forward with a shrill scream.
"I darted aside and fortunately fel'
lost to view in a swamp holo, complet -ly
covered with a mass of vines n"d
branches. There I lay breathless . i-
