Tho Now York Academy of Medicine
Is, as n body of learned men, about
forty-four years old Tho building in
which It now is, and which bears tho
same name, had its comer stone laid on
tho 2d of October, I8S0. and was ready
for occupancy in the following year. It

In tho basement of tho building aro tho
boilers for driving the ventilating fans,
dynamos and elevator. Hero, too, aro

air is taken from the roof, warmed if
necessary and forced into all parts of the

times thero are modest suppers givou by
some of the societies using the rooms or
by the academy itself In one corner of
the basement is the room where the
books are received and sent up by a sort
of dumb waiter to tho library above.

elevator is to the right. Immediately in

W. O. Ilnititii Mukrs n Visit to Astoria,

Ago I had occasion to visit Astoria,
which, like nil western towns nnd cities.
Inyscinlm to some particular point of nd
vantage over other towns and cities. As
torln claims tis her crowning feature to
be the only deep seaport of tho state. It
is also the headquarters of tho Columbia
river salmon Industry, and that alono
means vastly more than would seem a',
If 1 were asked to glvo the plnco a dis
tinctive title I would call It the city on
stilts It Is on the south shore of the
Columbia, some twelve miles from tho
mouth of thi.t river, and some hundred
odd mites ftoui Portland It is snid to
be tho largest city in the country thnt Is
without a railroad. Many plans nnd
propositions have been inadu from time
to time to build a road to connect Asto
ria with the tmnscontiuental lines at or
near Portland, but so far nothing tangi
ble has come of them, though a lino is at
present under construction
With a rail outlet or connection with
tho great grain centers of the Columbia
tributary country, Astoria would at
once tnko Its proper position ns an im
portant seaport. Slnco tho government
lias put in Jetties nt tho mouth of the
Columbia the hitherto obstructive bar

channel of ample depth for tho largest
ships to pass lu safety has boon created.
The town has n water frontage of
nearly six miles, nnd thero Is practically
no limit to its extension To reach deep

been constructed several hundred feet

streets havo crowded down ns closo to

bottom of the river nt tide lovel, nnd

Snakes In I'lku County.
Pike County, Pa., Oc. 1. Thero Is

of quaint people and rattlesnakes Up
here in Pike county nature has toured
forth the rattlesnake with a lavish hand.
The rattlesnake to Piko county is what
the beau is to Boston nnd the onion to
Bermuda: and the native proudly rolls
up his sleeves or, so to speak, shufllos off
his boot to display tho mark of the bite
received years ago. And ho feels the
same peculiar thrill of ecstasy in this dis
play that a seafaring man does in show
ing the artistic tattooing that is, figur
atively speaking, u part nnd parcel of
his person It is difficult to understand
the temperament of a man who loves to
hunt rattlesnakes, and displays the same
enthusiasm in this pursuit that another
exhibits in whipping a trout strenm
A certain native of these parts manip
