three metals, copper is tho bost conductor of
heat and Iron tho poorest.
Small Things That Rill.
The nowspapcrs have warned tho public
against swallowing tho sood of grapes,
oranges, etc., bocauso of tho danger of such
substances getting into a small intestinal bag
or eul-do-sne, called by doctors tho appendix
vermiformls. This, explains a correspondent
in Tho Ilartford Times, is a receptaclo formed
at tho Junction of tho largo and small intes
tines, but its uso or object no physician knows.
It has been thought to bo a rudimentary or
incomplete formation or possibly somo
meaningless survival of a lost anterior typo.
At any rate, its existence, whilo presenting
no apparent "roason for being," as tho French
say, Is, on tho other luind, a positive and con
stant sourco of danger, bocauso of tho liability
jf its becoming tho receptaclo of somo undi
gested seed or other indigestible substance
In that caso It produces a stato of indamma
l'jntlon, which, in nearly all cases, proves
fatal. Fortunately, but fow seeds among tho
great number so heedlessly swallowed scorn
to get into this llttlo death trap, although
any one, seems likely to lodgo thcro. Perhaps
moro cases of inflammation of tho bowels
than tho doctors suspect may bo, in reality,
duo to this obscure nml disregarded cause.
Height of Chimney.
A well proportioned chlmnoy of neat do
sigu, from "00 to 300 foot high, says Locomo
tive, is always an imposing structure, and
an ornament to a largo manufacturing
establishment, but it may well bo questioned
if it is over worth whilo to build them over
ICO foot high. Whoro cost is no considera
tion thcro is no objection to building them as
high nsono pleases; but for tho purely utili
tarian purposo of steam making, wo havo
yet to And a caso where it was necessary to
build a chimney moro than 150 feet high, and
In many cases whero this height has boon
reached equally good results might havo
been attained with a shorter chlmnoy, at not
much moro than ono-h!f tho cost. Aftor a
sufllclcnt height has been reached to produce
draught of sulllcieut intensity to burn lino,
hard oal, provided tho area of tho chlmnoy
is larf.o enough, thcro seems no good mechan
ical riason for adding further to tho hoight,
whatever tho slro of tho chimney required.
A most unusual phenomenon, which oc
curred in tho laboratory of tho University
of Virginia, has boon described by Sir. Mallet,
tho professor of chemistry of that establish
ment. During a sovoro storm ico was formed
In tho glass vessel of a gazogene, tho famil
iar apiwirutus for charging water with car
bonlo acid gas, Tlio expansion of tho ico
buret tho vessel, nftcr which tho ico itself ex
ploded repeatedly, and throw oIT fragments,
with a crackling sound. Tho cITcct is attrib
uted to tho pressure of tho gas contained in
tho ice, which, in tho caso of water, would
appear as slmplo oITervescoiico. Popular
Tho nrt of skating is a prehistoric ono. In
many parts of Knropo Ikhics of domesticated
animals havo been found which had been
uhciI us skntes or as runners of small sledges.
It is of considerable interest to learn that
similar Implements aro found still In uso in
several parts of northorn Clermnny. In Tho
Journal of tho IVrlln Ethnological Society
sledges nroilesorllieil which consist of a board
resting on tho bones of n horse. Hut, liesldcs

consist of tho lownr Jaw of cattle, tho curva

object of thosknui.

PHYSIOLOGY AND ''HYGIENE,
Tea n Alow Poison to Not i Vow I'oopl.
llcllef for Arutn llhntminttum.
Tlio insertion thnt ten isn jtolson Is re
ceived with incredulity by a majority of
readers, and tea drinkers ns n class express
doubt as regards tho correctness of alleged
poisonous proMrtlcs of ten. Popular Hcl
enco Nohs, in discussing tho subject, plica
numerous instances of individuals of this
class who wero themselves sullcrlng from
ten K)lsontng. Their nerves wero In a terri
bly abnormal condition, tho heart and brain
wero functionally dUturlied, and tho sleep
less in quantity and less refreshing than It
Ten contains much tannin nn 1 nn alkaloid
principle remarkably akin to cocalno, says
tho authority quoted. Thelno and cocnlno
both, when internally administered, product!
oxnltation of tho nervous system nud ln
creased jiowers of physical endurance, Tho
brain is largely lullucuccd In Its functions,
and long iorlods of wakefulness nro induced.
Continued uso of strong Infusions of either
coca or ton result In groat dlsturbnuco of
nervous centers and functional ulllccs, mid
either will produco fatal results by persistent
uso of Inordinate quantities.
A cup of ten ns served at ten tables con
tains usually but a troco of the alkaloldal
principle, but Infinitesimal quantities nro
caablo of oxertlngbauolnlelfects upon somo
Uv Jrlnkers. Tho tannin found In ten does
not dlirer from tho ngent found In oak and
other barks which tlio tanners uso to convert
tho raw hides of animals Into leather. It Is
a iwwerful astringent, nnd consequently,
taken internally, Is apt to produco constljvt
tlon nnd its attendant evils. Confirmed ten
drinkers nro usually troubled with consti
pated bowels, nnd lioneo with dyspejisln, tho
king of ovils. Not all ten drinkers nro thus
nlllictcd, but tho number is by no means
Mild infusions of tea nro undoubtedly ser
viceable to many, when not used to excess;
and It may bo further stated that n cup or
two of ten tnkon during tho day, nt meals,
rarely influences unfavorably vital processes
In nny one, unless thoy aro confirmed in
valids. It is rather tho abuse of tea, than its
uso, Hint causes serious physical evils. Four
or six cups of ten taken during each twenty
four houi-s will in tlmo produco ten poisoning
mid greater or less ovil results.
Acutn HlinuiiiiitWtn of tlio Joint.
For external applications in ncuto articu
lar rheumatism, Journal of Health regards
mustard poultlecH an tho most etllcaclous.
Tho uso of theso should bo commenced at
once, ns soon as tho joints becomo painful.
If only n small number nro afTccted, poul
tices can lo applied to each simultaneously,
or in succession until nil aro treated. When
now Joints becomo involved, renewed appli
cations aro domnudod; In fact, tho disease
should lo "chased" from ono afTccted jiortlon
to another. Tho oultlccs may bo applied
twjco dally, and nftcr their uso tho Inflamed
Joints should lo wrnppctl In dry cotton wool,
and thon bandaged neatly ond lightly with
flannel. Homo authors claim that theso
coverings aro useless, but all who havo suf
fered from tho disoaso can testify that ox
posuro of tho joints, oven to tho warm air of
tho sick room, aggravates tho pain.
Fresh Air nt Night.
Jenny Juno tolls of a Indy who for years,
during tho winter mouths, roso at night
after her husband was aslocp, nnd nolso
lessly ojicnod a window about two Inches,
top and bottom. If ho know of it ho would
declare it gavo him cold; if ho did not know
of it ho was not affected, except that ho
would get up particularly bright and well,
and frequently remarked to his wlfo: "You
sco it is all nonsense, your idea about open
ing tho windows such weather as this. I
havo no headache, nover folt bettor in my
life, and if you would tell tho truth yon
would say tho sarac." Ills wlfo nlwnysrosa
first, closed tho window as noiselessly as sho
had opened it, and turned on tho register.

Hub frequently with n bit of nlum slightly

to touch tho oxcresonco every day with ono

Somo weeks ago I saw Marion D. Lytlo, nn
adventurous nophow of Gen. Wm. II. Lytlo,
whoso poetic fnmo rests on tho authorship of
"I am Dying, Egypt, Dying." Young Lytlo
was quoted ns denying tho senvitlounl story
that the oom was written tho night Iteforo
tho general's death under a presentiment thut
tho author would full in battle tho next day.
Dr. Carlisle Terry, of Columbus, On., saw
tho jiarngraph, nud wroto to young Lytlo
concerning it. It npioars that I)r, Terry
was chief surgeon of Wlthcr's dlvIsliTn in
tho Confederate army, and was engaged
in tho battlo of Chicknmauga, where Gen,
Lytlo was killed. Ho says Gen. Lytlo
was tho only mounted ofllcor in sight as
tho Confederates advanced, and that ho
saw tho general, under heavy flro, look down
nt his foot as he rccoivod tho first of his four
wounds, and then fall dead with thrco moro
wounds, nny one of which was fatal. A
solitary able remained with drawn sword by
tho liody, and ns Gen. West nud Dr. Terry
rodo up, told thorn wlio tho dead olllcer wns,
nud nsked that his body bo protected. Tho
nldo emptied Lytlu's pockets, nud Gen, West
sunt all his circctA to his sister. Tlio aldo
said: "Gen. Lytlo left his watch in camp, ex
pecting to lie killed today," In tho dead
man's pocket was n clipping from n nows
lper, evidently of somo nge, on which
wns printed tho poem, "I nm Dying, Egypt,
Dying." Now York World "Obsorvnnt Citl

"Did you over seo ono of tho Roman tribute
pennies I" asked Mr. Smith.
Then, turning to Mr. Proskoy, ho said, In
tho words of the Scripture! "Show mo tho
tributo money." And ho showed him a penny.
Tho "penny" was a small silver coin, nbout
tho sizo of n slxiieuue, though rather thicker.
Tho "imago and siierscrlptlon" of Cjnsar
wero plainly visible, though somewhat irreg
ular nnd worn. As is tho caso with many
old coins, tho center of tho dio did not corre
spond with tho center of tho disc.
"That," said Mr. Proskoy, "is cnusod by
their not using tho collar to keep tho dlso iu
plaeo while it was bolng struck. Tho collar
was not discovered till nbout Queen Eliza
bctlfs time, sluco which it has been nlmost
unlvorsally adopted. It also serves to glvo
tho milled or lettered edge. Roman coins nro
not worth much," ho added. "Most varieties
bring aliout $1.35. Thoy are not very com
mon, but thoro is no demand for them. If as
many collectors should go to collecting them
with tho Sfimo energy as they do American
coins thcro would not bo onough to go round.
There nro many rnro coins in smnll private
collections which larger ohm do not have."

A prominent Now York doctor has boon

latter is a millionaire who retired from busi
