A Hunt Ktn mi In Simla.
A curious phenomenon occurred in
fiimla recently on two successive nights.
This was nothing less than a dust storm
lu tho midst of u downpour of rain, or
rather, to Hpcak morn correctly, n shower
f Intnl. A column of dust seems to
have been carried np into tho higher at
mosphere from the plains nnd to have
been caught nnd forced down by the
heavy rain. Iu the morning, as u result,
all the plants and flowers iu Simla were
found to have received a thick coating
of mud. There could be no doubt thut
the mud had lieen rained down, for it
wun freely sprinkled on plants away
from the hillside nnd nt a great height
from the ground. Moreover a deposit
of mnd was found In the rain gauges in
various parts of the station. It is a
common thing to see the atmosphere In
the hills din ing the hot season thick with
dust from the plains, carried aloft by a
strong wind. Uut the conjunction of
fain and dnst Is nn accident of which,
It is stated, there is no previous record.

The Sarreil Hook of Ceylon.
Tliero are three books regarded ns sa
cred by Duddhista of Ceylon. The first,
called tho Malmvanso, is tho most highly
venerated. It has been very carefully
handed down from feneration to genera
tion, the most ancient copies not vary
ing in tho least from those of modern
date. The Jlahavanso contains "Tho
Doctrine, Race iindLinenpreof Buddha,'
besides tho authentic unnali of Ceylon
cso Cuddhif in.
Next to tho Mahavnnso. in point of
veneration is tho "Learned Friest'a" his
tory of Buddha, called tho llaiaratna-
cari. This book also contains extracM
from other antique works, besides ft
record of tho erection of the various
temples nnd shrines of tho Island and .1
history of the l;iii23 from tho year Gil)
B. C. The third of tho Ceyloncse sacred
books is called tho IlajavaU or "Light
Giver;" it is 6imply a modem supple
ment of tho other two nnd brings the
records down to date. Tho main por
tion is given up to recording events in
Ceyloneso history since the advent of tho
the Dutch, especiul attention being
given to that portion of the work which
tells of the expulsion of tho Portuguese.

Silk Weaving by El ctrlclty.
An interesting trial has beer made In
Germany with silk weavers' looms
worked by electricity. By a cable of
100 feet in length, a one ho;. power
electric ihnnt motor, with 10O' is and
four amperes, was put in mo ion, and
the transmission for the weave;' looms
was restricted by a communicator to
eventy-two revolutions. Two wearer
looms were put in motion, tho result be
ing that the working by electricity was
mora satisfactory than that by means of
caloric engines or gas motors, and the
swinging mas-we, otherwise necessary
for tho working on a small scale, can bo
dispensed with. The Oerman paper
thick the results named show that house
industry conld easily be made to flourish
oytho transmission of electrio power,
and this all the more as electricity can
be transmitted equally well under any
temperature. Now York Telegram.

What the French know about per
fuino malting is not all tho result of
their own experience. The traditionary
history of tho nrt is that tho Hebrews
imparted the little they know to their
captors, the Egyptians, who in turn
gavo their formulas to the Greeks and
Romans. The Moors then took n hand
nt improving these crude efforts, and
when they invaded Europe left their art
