In order to introduce so great n mass of water In so short 11 tlmo (10,000 cubic motors In ilfteon minute), it hns lceu necessary to adopt pociillar arrangement..

Tho Museum of Natural History nt Paris bos now tit itn possession & curious reptile that cainu from Ht. Domingo. It bears the uamo of horned lizard. -MSg' , - 4,11.1' ' jS THE IIOKXED UZAUD. 'Tho honied Heard is doscrllied by La Nature as about twonty-clglit inchw in length. Its body is gross nnd squnt, of a brown color, and tho lino ot tho back is covered with spiuca that point backward, from thu kick of tho head to tho licgimitngof tho tall, whero there Is a small spneo destitute ot them. Tho toll is not cylindrical llko that of our lizards, but is compressed laterally, and is provided with 6troug muscles that allow tho animal to switch it abruptly and powerfully in either direction in order to defend itself whun nuy ono tries to touch it. Back of tho head, which possesses remark blo peculiarities, tho lack is provided with sort ot hump. Tho head, which is sur mounted in front with a dermic horn, Is largo and inflntcd on each sldo nt tho back. Under tho lower jaw we obwrvu a fold in tho skin, flanked on each sldo by largo jwekets, that give tho animal, in a fuco view, a moat curious aspocU Modem llxploilven. Tho composition of somo of tho modem high .explosives, according to Kiiglueerlng, is as follows: Dynamite 73 parts of nltro-glyeorino and 25 ot infusorial earth. Rendrock 10 parts uitro-glycorino, 40 of nltrato ot potash or soda, 13 ot cellulose, and 7 parntllne. Giant Powder 30 parts of nltro-glyeorino, 43 ot nltrato ot potash or 6oda, 8 ot sulphur, and 8 of resin or charcoal. Mica Powder 33 parts nltro-glycerlno and 43 of pulverized mien. Blasting Gelatine W jiarU of nltro-glyo-erlno and 8 of gun cotton. It will bo noticed that nearly nil tho above explosives are composed principally of nitro glycerine; and it U probable that in most cases thu other ingredients only act at ab sorbents of this liquid, and really add noth ing to tho explosive power. A New Mllltnrr lUtlnn. According to a recent statement made in a foreign exchange, all tho garrisons within the limit of tho Borcnth German nnny corps lwvo now been provided with larger sampled ot the new articlo of food which is in future to form tho so called "iron ration" of tho men In the Held.

A Worm In u Hen's line. Every now nml then somebody reports as a -wonderful phenomenon, tho finding of a worm In n lion's egg. A writer In Bclouce zib.in that tho normal habitat ot the worm ! (".i-:tIon, l.i tho fowl's intwtiue, but It in-. '!" wanders Into tho vladuot. A CleTor Woman Turn Amateur Deeo rntor To .Mitlm Hwi1 tlm l.tnrn l'tri, Ail Ingenious nirnb'ur, a lady, recr ntly did a Very cnilltahlo job of ilivornlloii on tho walls of a iidiiu, which was neeonipllhod, ac cording to Decorator and Furnisher, as fol lows! Tho ambitious artist had ii coat of coarso plaster put iiK)ii tho wall which she wished to decorate. After marking Itoir lute panels and cohimus, she mixed plasterof purls with Iro until It wax of projior consistency, then nddrsl a siilllcleut niuoimt of color to make It a delicate simile, of olive. A thin coat of this was put over tho cntlro wall surface and al lowed to dry. Then n little dark green bronio was put Into the mixture and applied to the lower Krtlon of tho middle of tho panel. This was not smoothed, but patted over so as to produce a surface covered with little dots and x)lnt.s. A single oxierIiuent will show thiiresult moro clearly than any amount of explanation could do. AImivo tho dark brouzo was n lighter shado of a yellowish cast. Tho two occupied n spaco of but llltlo moro than four Inches from Mm lower part of tho pnnol. A vino was sketched in tho damp plaster, the tendrils and leaves drooping from tho heavy stalk on one slilo, mid following tho Inner Hue of tho panel, which was arciioti nt thu top. Tho back ground grow lighter toward tlio iiitvr jtart until it was of tho cloudy, hazy, golden grny ot Indian summer. Tho next p,inel was dono In shades of gray, with liramhlo bushes nnd golden rod, nnd a dull blue sky. A morning glory In jmlo greens and purjilos, a climbing row, a passion vino, and u lattice with delicate bars and crc!iors worn among tho panel decorntlons. Columns were sketched In nnd n friezo of medium depth tlnlshed tho nmnteur work. Tho colling had been previously dono by a professional decorator. Tho entire Mirfnco was reugh, and tho vines, llowers and leaves wore lit slight relief. Tho columns wore still more prominent, and were dono In dark gold bronze with buses of dark olive green. Hump KihIMi Nuiiee. A simple wiiiee, which forms tho grand standard adjunct to roast lieof, is homo, rad ish sauce. To make this, scrapo as flnoly as possible u cupful of tho root shavings; slm mor them In linlf n pint of chicken broth; when dono thicken Iho broth with tho yolks ot three eggs, beaten up with n dessertspoon ful of tarragon vinegar; add iper, salt nnd n very llttlo grated nutmeg, and servo very hot in a Niitco boat, If it Is desired to mako It richer, n coireo cupful of cream mixed with tho yelks of the eggs, and stood on tho lire in a double boiler, nml stirred until It is very hot, is all that Is necessary. Tho cold form of this sauce is tho easiest to mako, and as nlco as one could wish for. Tho horre radish root is simply rasped until wo havo a cupful of iluo hcrnplngs, and then mixed with an ordinary mayouunlso, or with three tnblo jjioonful.s of cream, ono tablespoouful of vin egar nnd ono of sugar. ltouit Chestnuts ami How to Sorvo Tliein. The first requisite in prewiring this popu lar refreshment is n clear lire, which is best obtained by tho uso of coko. Ho sure that tho chestnuts are good. Then cutatraus vorso silt on the Hat bUIo of tho chestnut, not onthocouvox sldo; uso a sharp knlfo, and lw careful not to cut into tho chestnut. Put tlioiu Into an old frying pan or Hat Iron ves sel of some sort, tho bottom of w hlch must bo perforated with holes about thu sire of a pea. A frying pan with holes punched in will answer tho purioso. Put the chestnuts In a pan over a clear llrb, and stir them oc casionally. When tho hkln ojiens nt tho placo whore It is silt try If tho chestnuts are dono, and servo them on n dish in u napkin. But ter and salt should bo handed round at tho samo tlmo. lloullloii for AftoriUHiii Ten. Hot bouillon Is simply tho clearest beef oup which enn lie modo; beef ten, it is some times called. It Is made, says Harper's Ba tor, the day before, nnd u llttlo celery seed Is thrown in to llavor it. Then tho soup is sot away to cool, and all tho grease taken off. It is then strained, nnd thus Mug jierfectly clear, is seasoned with a llttlo salt, heated, mid served hot in cups; it is delicious at afternoon teas. It should bo kept hot in a silver urn over an alcohol lamp. Old rusliloneil Soda lllncult. To mako flaky soda biscuit mix together a quart of dry Hour, u teaspoonful of baking soda, two of cream of tartar, ami a saltspoon fid of salt; pass through a sieve, then chop In two ounces ot butter or lard, nnd mix quickly with milk to mako n very soft dough.
