Some years ago, when Benjamin Con

took advantage of his being here and
gave him orders for their portraits.
Among these was a well known man.

HOW TALC IS QUARRIED.
"Where It Comes Trcm asd the 3Ianaer ct i
Sending It to aiarket.
At iuzenac, in the upper valley of
the Ariege, talc is quarried on an ex
tensive scale in the granite of St. Bar
thelemy, a mountain 7,700 feet high
and about 20 miles from the main chain
of the Pyrenees. The quarries, which
are situated about two miles from the
summit and a,900 fiet above the sea,
are opened in a bedded deposit, included
between niieaschist below and lower j
Silurian slates above, which has been
followed for about 2,000 yards in a '
north and south direction, with a dip of
about 60 degrees to the east, the thick
ness varying from 160 to 3,000 feet, as
dees also the composition. .Masses of
limestone and granite, the latter often
of consideral le size, are frequently found
included in the silicate of magnesia,
which also contains some alumina.
The best rock is of a brilliant white
color and feels greasy to the touch when
ground to fine powder. The principal
quarry, at Tremouin, is worked in the
open, across the direction of the bed,
forming two or three terraces 50 feet
high, the surface covering, 6 to 10 feet
thick, having been first stripped. The
stuff broken is carried by a level, in the
bottom of the quarry, driven in the foot
wail of the vein to the valley of Axiat,
whence it is hauled in bullock wagons
about 12 miles to the works of Iiuzenac,
where a water power of 90 horsepower
is obtained from the Ariege The me
chanical preparation includes sizing by
sieves, driving in a rotating cylinder
furnace, breaking, grinding and sifting.
Nearly the whole of the product is
converted into powder, only a small
part being made into pencils for mark

The reversibility of the physical proc
esses of nature has latterly been the
subject of interesting comment. Lard
Kelvin, for example, has been credited
with saying that all of them, no matter
how complex they might appear to the
human senses, consist in reality of the
motions of invisible molecules, and if,
therefore, by some means, all these
molecules could, at the same time, be
made to move in exactly the opposite di-
rection, and each with the same velocity
that it possessed at the moment, all the
world would begin and continue to move
backward; waterfalls would flow up the
sides of cliffs, rivers would run upward
from the sea, rain wouldrise, full blown
flowers would shrink into buds and
plants dwindle into seedlings, man him
self would become young again, passing
frcm old age to infancy. Just what kind
of pictures such a topsy-turvy world
would present maybe seen with a kinet
oscope running backward. Professor

A BIT OF HISTORY.
GersBasto-fro, Ps Was Once Called the
Capital of the Country.
A pupil in the Boys' Grammar school,
on Lafayette street, Germantown, was
asked by his teacher "when the first
congress occupied the Germantown
academy, located on West School lane."
It was a puzzle, of course, to the young
scholar, who was at a less to find any
thing in print verifying such an event.
The facts, however, from which the
false impression has frequently obtained
are as follows: The government of the
United States was first inaugurated in
New York in 17S9, but by act of con
gress Philadelphia was made the capital
of the nation from 1790 until 1800. In
1793 the yellow fever became epidemic
in this city, and it was in October of
that year that the governor of Pennsyl
vania asked the board of trustees to ac
commodate the house of assembly, and
a similar request for quarters came from
At the November meeting following
the board proffered to congress the
choice of the school building, but there
is no minute evidence to show that con
gress accepted the generous offer. At
this time Washngtcn resided in German-'
town, and the town was spokpn of aa
the government place of the state, and
also of the United States. Jefferson,
then secretary of state, and Bandolph,
attorney general, occupied the building,

site on which the National bank now

So, with Washington, Thomas Jeffer- j

was in session at the same time. Al- j
though the Germantown academy never
bad the honor cf

later, in 1798, when
the yellow fever made its appearance
again in this city, the banks of North
America and of Pennsylvania did find a

MUSIC AND THE HAIR.
The Effect of TThratioss Tpoa the Cover
ing or the Heed.
In a recent scientific assemblage a
discussion took place upon the influ
ence of sleep in skin diseases. One of
the gentlemen who took part stated in
his criticism of the paper which had
been read that one might as well talk
of the influence of music upon the
growth of the hair. It would seem that
the suggestion cf a possible connection
thus thrown out in a jesting way has
been taken seriously. At least a corre
spondent of Le Temps has made the
discovery that music of certain kinds
does in reality prevent the hair from
falling, while that produced by certain
instruments has the most disastrous ef
fects in causing rapid development of
baldness. He finds that while composers
are as prone as others to lose their hair
at an early age those who play their
compositions upon the piano preserve,
if they do not aaraire, a luxuriant
growth of hair. On the other hand,
wind instruments, and especially the
comet and trombone, are fatal to hir
sute adornment. The violoncello and
the harp keep the hair in pretty well, but
the flute cannot be depended upon to
preserve a strong growth after the fifti
eth year of age.
A number of pianists, including Pa
derewski, are cited in confirmation of the
pronounced influence of piano music. It
has been admitted for some time that
music has a certain therapeutic worth,
and it will be recalled that Dr.Ferrand
presented a report to the French acad
emy on the physiological influence of
music, pointing out in what ways it
could be employed with therapeutic
aims. Subsequently Dr. Berzehinsky re
ported an instance of night terrors in a
child of 3 years, who was cured by hav
ing played to it each night music of a
calming nature written in a minor key.
A test was made after a few nights by
omitting the music, and that night
alone the child had an attack.
It has not as yet been determined just
what key is most favorable to the pre
vention of an early bald state. Prob
ably a reasonable way of settling the
disputed point would be to make a few
experiments on dogs, thus proving a
tolerance feu-different strains and avoid
ing the horripilation to which some pa
tients of refined tastes might be sub
jected. Wind instruments are always
dangerous if the hair hag not a good
hold, while stiff haired people can
stand anything. Possibly a good rule
far any musician would be aa scon as
he finds his hair falling that he should
cease playing far others. ZSIedical .Rec

The fashion of the smooth face con
tinues to increase in popularity, and
mustaches are daily sacrificed to a fad
which is not so well adapted to every
man as a great many men evidently
think. The style came from England.
It became so much the proper thing in
England for men to appear without hair
on their faces that it was finally found
necessary to forbid the practice in the
armv, as the loss of whiskers was
spreading so rapidly that there prom
ised to be a beardless army in a short

unquestionably accepted when they are
