will npare you a diicription of tho variooa dia

prHMioiia of a noii-expert.
A Hoction of human ncalp about aa largo a

and tho Intervening canala red, and a liberty

was a hair.
The LacllluH tuberculoMiN, tho mouater thai

what tho appearance of four-leafod clover;
while tho former arranged itself symmetrically,
liko pancake or giiiger-enapa waiting to be

A bit of quartz crystal looked like an exhibi

pyrotechnics, aa it were.
Dr. F. Y. Clark exhibited curious dentine
the micro-organisms in decayed human toeth.
These minute fellows looked liko . I'll
tell you below what they looked liko, for I
sought oat and inepocted tho intcrostins crea
turos the next day.
At the exhibition I saw our best-known
dealer in microscopes, who ia ahto a careful ex
perimenter and a member of the society, aud
asked him if there "was anything new lu micro
Bcopy. "New?" he repeated, "nothing absolutely
new, perhaps, exoept the enormous pro
gress that is being made in the
Hcienoe. Interest is xtondinj among
all classes of people, and we sell
threo times as many mioroacopes aa we
did five or six years ago. Great advancement
is being made in these directions which affect
human health for instance, in dentistry. The
microscope reveals the cause of the decayed
t eth, and there are half a dozen of the pio
neer of the movement in this ceuntry who will
assure you that a real revolution is being ef
fected. I might mention Dr. Miller, of Berlin,
Prin6iA; Prof Mavr and Dr. Stock well, of
Springfield, Mass. ; fir. Ilarrett, of Buffalo: or
Dr. Clark, of this city. These men talk very
earnestly and confidently concerning their snc
km in preventing decay of tho teeth. Clark
was one of the first innovators here, but a good
many who oamo to ncorT remain to practice on
hw theory the germ theory, as they call it -
'ITie next day . I huntod un Dr. "Clark, and
found him alone, and tbo microscope of hi ah
power, which had attracted my attention the
previous night, on his tible. In reply to my
question he said: '"Ic. but of ail men we dou
tisw noed no stirring np. We are more alive to
anything new than any others can bo, aud any
new idea or mode of treatment, when once al
luded to in our jonniils, stirs us np quite
enough without the stimulus of the daily pre."8.
There are two theories aa to the docav of teeth
tho acid and the germ theory. I believe in
and practise on the latter."
1 inquired what facts the given theorists had
discovered to iustify their mode of practice.
"We have advanoed thus far," ho said, "we
Lave discovered bactetia of various species
in carious dentine that is, in decayed teeth.
They are the smallest living organisms, but
the microscope of high power reveals them.
This much is a demonstration. Bnt as this is
a scientific controversy, I do not see the profit
ableness ef carrying it on in newspapers."
In response to further questions he aaid: "It
has always been believed and taught in our
schools, and colleges, aud Dooks that decay of
the teeth was produced by acid", A great ma
jority of deutitts still practice on this belief.
We believe this is entirely erroneous. We can
not discover any acid in carious dentine, but
we discover bacteria iu all carious structures.
These little things are found in abundance
wherever decay is going on, and aa they do not
naturally belong there and are known to lie
agents of fermentation and decomposition, we
hold they are the prime cause of the decay."
-In what way do bacteria attack teeth?"
"They get into the tube-cells, and, by ab
sorbing the lrfe-matter or bioplaem, the bony
structure of the teeth becomes disintegrated,
w hich is decay."
"Can you kill them?"
"Yes ; without this ability our knowledge of
their existense, appearance and f nntion would
be of littlo value. By the proper use of various
antiseptics or tiixiufeMora we claim to be ablo
to destroy them and prevent their increase,
and if our instructions are obeyed wo ought to
be able iu mont cases to prevent decay."
"mUthn theory, when practically carried
lit, remove tho necessity of extracting teeth?"
a ma is Liiu iuui oi ail buuui 103 kuu elix goou
dentists, but we germ men believe that, know
ing the actual cause of decay, we can more ef
fectually and unerringly apply the remedy,
and that the time will come when young peo
ple's teeth will bo so cared for that all decay, a
the Irishman would remark, will be arrested
before it starts."
"Then what will become of the dentists?"
"By that time people may become fastidious
about the arrangement and bhape of their
teeth, and that would keep an army of dentists
busy. Or perhaps by that time," he continued,
with a laugh, 'folks will want their teeth
painted black, like tho Chinese mothers, or
blue, like some of tne Polynesians, and we
shall all turn out decorative artiste. How came
you to call here?"
I told him, and asked the privilege of seeing
some bacteria. He hesitated, and aald he had
talked too much already. In the interest of
science I stepped to the microscope he h id left
and looked in. I saw a placid mill-pond with
a few stray bubbles on its surface. By strain
ing my eyes for five minutes I discovered be
neath the surface white specks, qnite thick to
gether. They might be little jelly-fish, I
thought Most of them were still, bnt now
and then one gave a little shiver and moved on
with a pitch.
"Are these bacteria?"
"Yes, there are a mnltitade of one or two
't' i. . ; . .1 ; . .ii .i. . .. A i n ,
"Can you eee others?"
"Yes, in this slide you will be apt to find a
variety. The other contained a bit of saliva
with carious dan tin a This is the same, mixed
with putrid water," and he substituted another
I looked in, and gazing attentively, saw a
rather complicated wilderness. "I see," said
I, "a field as big as aa Indian reservation. The
Indians are off ou the warpath. The field is
about ten rods distant; I can see as much as
fifty hogs ruahiug around in it; they are all
white; each one whirls around and then dives
ahead two or three steps they are apparently
dancing a s.-hortiaohe ; I can see Oue reach for
a bunch of grapes in a tree overhead, and
another stick his snout under a log nnd try to
get an acorn that it lies on. They have black
spots on them a sort of spotted Berkshire, I
"Thme are infusoria," aaid the doctor;
"about the smallest of animals."
"Ah ! infusoria," eaid I, quoting from Cham
bers' Encyclopaedia, which I had just read,
"are very minute. It is estimated that a single
Irop of putrid water may contain more of
thoe little fellows than there aie human boiugs
ou b trio'ie."
"Well, I don't know about that," id the doc
tor. "I ra her doubt tiiat. Pet ii 1. ! 'hey iu"a :t
b:ct;-rio, w'-ich arj much ini.;l e . I don't w.sh

I to n meu;al note of the statistic and went
on: 'I eee a turt.e cunning up on to clap.
Now that I look closely, doctor, 1 see about a
million wluto mice on the reservation, poi,.g
around in a leisurely monitor anions the white
wjue. The hogs are all exoiu.-d, waltzing,
turning summersets, butting inV everything;
bnt tha mice are ralm and sereue. The mice
' may Le tne s:ime 1 tte feJows I saw before."
"Yen, those bacteria. I iufer iha: the in
fusoria sonietv.j'3 eat the bacteria at aay rat,e
I have Keen the latter in-ide the former, strug
gling to get out. Infusoria are scavengers,
able to eat anything; more like goats, perhaps,
I took another look at tho micro. -opo. I saw
a double-ender rolling down acrowa the lot;
apparently either a pojnnt or a dumb boll.
I he figs were duciiti their familiar jig, and
there were I iu of log-ehaiu n -altered here and
there over the Meld, and a good man v of the
m.cn were hhivering ax if they had their shanty
in the lowest part of the Jerney flats. Other
animals almi I
otinded into tlio field now aud
then. "Tbnl would be a letter placo for hunt
ing than tho .Vliromlark," said I. And as my
eyes ached, I thanked him, and came away.

I am enabled to e.ontrihute a fact or two to
tho Yellowstouo contioversy that may have
general application. There is to be a rueh of
visitors to the national park this year. The
Northern Pacilia railroad runs fifty-six miles
north of the northern boundary of the park,
and a branch line wid be built to the park
itself as soon as pos.?ibh). The Northern Pa

there could not be hotel, without hotold all

The members of tho Western associated
press who are to vixit Yellowstouo park this
summer, at eueli tune as they may appoint, as
guests of the Northern Pacific railroad, should
not bo severe beyond the dictates of conscience
on an arrangement that will provide them with
hotel accommodations, aud all citizoua should
be grateful if, at the same time, provision is
made for the protection of tho wonders of na
ture iu the park from those barbarians, whose
peculiar degradation has aire iriy been illus
tratnd by netting tire to venerable forest!,
hacking and mutilating picturesque objects,
and spoiling the magnificent geysers with
ntones and logs. In comparison with the hido

among the prizes to be secured, and there are
many members' hands in the government grab
bag. There aro very few of the defeated con
gressmen who are in first-rate shape to go home
aud re-tume former business. In the case of law
yers, this is especi illy true. Most of thoia are
middle-aged men who, six or eight venri ago,
left a fair practico to come to congress. In the
meantime fresh blood has come into their
towns, younger men have established them
selves, and gathered up the practice, and it is
not easy, indeed it is almost impossible, to
It would seem that men with a growing law
practice, men who depend on thoir own re
sources for a livelihood, would anticipate tho
result of a suspension of private busiuess
during years spent iu the public service. The
partner who is left at home to look after the
congressman's interests retains only the cli
ents who rely on him ; tho remainder turn to
other lawyers, aud when the defeated member
returns to his home he finds himslf practically
out of work.
However, ths poor lawyer who aspires to be
a legislator ehuts his eyes to the future and de
ckles to enter politics. I romthat moment ex
penses begin. He must contribute to the cam
paign fund, aud contribute liberally, or he
will not bo carried through. It may be that
the contest is so clo i0 that ho is obliged to
mortgage his honie to raise fuiids. Hid free
dom of speech is at once curtailed.
He is no longer a freeman. He is worried
and harassed on everv hide. But there is a
partial recompense. 1'ho futrd day arrives.
Our candidate is i.uceo.-sful and becomes a
member-elect. Can ho now give himself up
to intoxicating dreams of his own eloquence
in the halls of the nation's capitol? Can his
leisure hours be filled with imaginings of h s
own speeches ou the "burning issues" of ti.o
day? Kot at all. The election debris is no
sooner cleared away than the wrangle for
office begins. There aro collectorshipa and
clerkships and postoffices to be fought over,
with the surety that a vast majority of tho ap
plicants must be disappointed in the end
and thus converted from friends into working
antagonists, aud the struggle does not stop
when the unhappy member finally escapes to
Washington. There bitter disappointment
awaits him. He is placed on an unimportant
committee. His speeches are not listened to
with deference or attenflon.he is not so quickly
recognized by the speaker of the house as the
older members his influence in the depart
ments is small; he is not in demand in Rociery.
Our congressman grows dasperate; his prido
is touched and he resolves to "conquer or die. "
He studies finance. He ax aminos one branch
of the subject iu its minutest detail and
biding his time burst into the arena with
an array of facta and a com
mand of language that surprises the house into
listening. They at once discover the true ring
of his speech aud give him their univorsal at
tention. They applaud him, congratulate him,
shake his hand; he is the hero of .iie hour.
His star ia now in the ascendant He no
longer talks to empty benches. His constitu
ents who have followed him to Washington for
clerkships are gradually stowed away in the
department pigeon hole. His wife and
daughters become more prominent as social
figures, and bis own presence is in good de
mand at dinner names. Our representative
baa now clear sailing. He goes home, secures
his re-election and returns, and l-egius work to
secure a good committee position for the next
congress. Ho Bticeeeds and is given a prom
inent p!ace on a prominent committee. In this
way he becomes intimate with the "leaders" of
the house, is oocasionallv spoken of himself as
a leader, aud from ibat becomes an ob
ject of interest to the galierie-4. His affairs are
now at t'ood tide and the ebb is so gradual th it
he does not realize it There appears on the
clear horizon a li tie disturbance over a post
oflice in his d s'rict A numerously signed
petition to remove the preseut incumbent is
sent to him. Tins he refuses to do, as the
postmaster ia one of bis own appointments,
and in many respects a suitable person for the

THE TIOONDEEOGA GHOST.
A Curious; Htory and an Odd I'olnel
When tho late Dean Stanley was in this coun
try ho spent an evening with Bishop Williams
iu Hartford. The conversation had turned to
the subject of the French and Indian war, and
the doan displayed great knowledge con jeruing
the history of those days. At loughth Ticon
doroga w: s mentioned, and tho Englishman
asked: ' Did you ever li ar, bishop, tho story
of Duncuri Campbell of Iuveraugh? Weil,
there happened, shortly after the defeat of
Edward tho Pretender, to be a riveting of gen
tlemen in tha west of Scotiund, whose conver
sation !tu nod upon political subjects. It was
dangerous ground, for part of thorn were in
favor of the family of Hanover, and the rest
wore partisans of Charles Sinart. Tho discus
sion waxed hot, aud at length Hword.s wero
drawn. The quarrel was oiily ended when one
of the contestants fell ile.d. Thoie lived at
that tiitio, as they do to-day, near the jilacu of
quarrel, the family of Campbells of lnvcr
angh. Duncan Campbell was then the he id
of the clan, and to him the unfortunate man
appealed for protection. With tho usual hos
pitality of a Highlander the Campbell
granted him shelter, and swore to defend him
in his misfortuuo. The following day tho
startling news came to the chief that the mur
dered mail was his own cousin, and that he
was sheltering the slayer of a kinsman. That
night the cousin came" to Campbell in a dream
and demanded of him vengeance for bis death.
The honorable soul of the chieftain revolted
from any treachery, and he told his guest of
the dream. Again night came, and again the
cousin appeared, asking for retribution. Un
able to break his vow, Campbell sent his guest
away to the mountains under a strong escort,
and trusted ho would at length sleep iu peace.
But at dead of night came that ghastly visitor
and said in tones of anger: 'Duncan Campbell,
we will meet at Ticonderoga.' The Highlander
awoke next morning with a great feeling of re
lief. Ticonderoga' was a word he had never
heard, and whether the spirit referred to a
realm of the other World or was inventing
words to scare him he neither knew nor cared.
"Years went by, and at length Duncan Camp
bell found himself a major in the Scotch ran
gers under Abercronibie in the expedition
against the French on Lake George in the sum
mer of 1758. The army, the largest ever as
sembled in America up "to that time, had sailed
down the lake iifk thousand boats aud landed
near its outlet. To the Scotch major
the name Ticonderoga, against which
point the expedition was directed, had
sounded with an awful and ominous
import His colonel, by name Gordon-Grahant-t
who knew the story, endeavored to
cheer his drooping spirits, but it was with a
heavy heart that tho Highland chieftain pre-
Sared his men for attack. The story of that
ay's disaster is well known ; how the brave
Lord Howe fell early m the action; how the
brawny Scotchman attempted to scale tho
breastworks, and how at length the retreat was
sounded after the loss of irno men. Mortally
wounded, Duncan Camrlell was carried from
the field, and breathed his lsl in the liojpjt.it
at Fort Edward. Just before his death ho sai J
to Gordon-Graham: 'As I slept last night after
the battle, colonel-the spirit of my cousin came
to me and said: 'Duncan Campbell, we have
met at Ticonderoga. ' "Such," said the dean,
in conclusion, "is tho 'ghoet story of Ticond
erga' as I have heard it from tho -present
Campbells of Inveraugh, tha descendants of
the unfortunate Duncan."
The bishop had listened with great interest
to the tale, and at its cloee said: "Your story,
dean, is now to mo, but I now recollect that 1
havo seen the gravo of Duncan Campbell at
Fort Edward. It ia marked by a crumbling
slab th-it tells of his death from a wound re
ceived in the attack on Ticonderoga. July S,
Thus it happened that one of the only men
in England who knew the strange story of the
Scotch major told it, by a peculiar chance, to
perhaps the only man in America who had
noticed the existence of that neglected grave.
