Whirl the Xew Urotbcr
Jnst a quarh-r of a century ago a secret so
ciety, known aa the Bona of Malta, sprang sud
denly into existence iu the city of New Or
loans. Tho original olJ'-ct of tho oi g;iniation .
whs til's capture of Cuba, and many iiroinincnt
military men of tho south were tho loading
pints iu tho uiovrmenL For reasons which
Uio writer is not at lilcrty to divulgo, the fill
blistering plans of the order wore abruptly
(inclched, ami aoon thr-ror.fter a well-known
livWBpaiior man, ho had Leon iuitiated, con
e'ivod the idi-a of niaking "some fun
for the hoys." Tho whole business
of initiation, o'c was tr,inroinil in
to a soi ifs of tho mow', stupendous soils, prao
tical jokes and outragcoiinly comical proceed
ings eviT dreamoil of. Tho o rdi;r epread rap-
'dly all over tlie uuiou. It was generally lie-
lioviul by tho ontuidc public that tho Sons of
Malta was a bniiovolent society, and to fonter
this belief, frequent louthy notices of charita-
lle dxs!s ei formed hy tho ol der was pu5
lished in the ucwspbpcrs all over the land-
Xloo'.ins wore held weekly, and thoro was ao
much solid fun to he enjoyed that nothing
short of a death iu thofani.lv would deter a
ni' iulier from attending; therefore, in many
places, tho ruomhot-ship woe so Kreat that the
utmost difficulty was expurioncod iu obuiluins
loilgu-rooTii.i of siiRicienl capacity.
Caiidiilaten for initiation were ushered into
tho hall whoro thoso who wero already men
Lars- wore arranged in rows, each covered from
Load to foot with a white or black gown, in
which was cut small holes for tho eyes aud
month. With this garment on the identity of
the wearer was perfectly concealed and the
candidates who wero initiated at ono time Jil
Dot know whether they wero in the haudd of
friends or strangers.
To each candidate the "master of coro-
nioniOM," in a most uupronaive and picas:ug
manner, stated the objects of tho order and
told how tho brotherhood camo together with
ono aim and one nudersUuriing. "We arc
bound together," ho said, "by the tiea of love,
confidence and charity - for one another
strengthened aud solidified by tho comont
of confession. We open ur the wrcu
of our hearts in the hearing and presonce of
each other. We are all sinful creatures, and
confession is good for the soul. Our good
deeds speak for themselves, and onr bad deeds
are recorded, ana in tiue time inese reenrus
are burned and the ashes are all that remain of
a dead and forgotten past
A lien the candidate was asuea lr no was
illinir to leave tho sinful world behind, and
enter upon the new life. An alnrniative an
swer, and the initiation began. lie was im
mediately blindfolded, led to a step-ladder,
and told to ascend and seat himeolf on the top
stair with arms folded. This was the position
each had to occupy while undergoing the or
deal of a eonle jmou or ins misueeus. lie
would he led along bv alroit questioning until
he made wlit wan regarded us a clean breast
of Uis morai shcrt'-oiiiiugs. When a pariieu-
larly rich or unesjoctod aumision ts
pnnired out of him, a deep, aepulchral voice
solum 1 v esclaiinod :
And iminediatolv a lienvv blow w.ia struck
upon a big drum to drown the lrrepresaihle
If a c-ndidate gave evidonce of a dosire
to conceal any-liing ho was given to understand
that the inner 'secrets ot his sou were Known
to the order, and to hesitate to cive tl.eni
ould be an nupai'donable crime in tho eves
of the brotherhooiL This would suflieo tor
many, bnttlu majority would of course b dd
out and refuse to MiHwer sonu imleiu-.ite
question. 1-able to le d into a channel that
might involve him in a disagreeable cont'esioa.
And nil through this was exactiy what was
aimed at .
In such cases an intimate friena of the can
didate would pass up to the master of cere
monies on a slip of j.apr 11 point or two in
eomo questionable transaction ot the appli
cant's life, aud this would aaove the key to
unlock the secret recesses of ins heart 'lneu
would the master 8:tv, in a tone of rebuke:
"The records of the order show that upou
such a day, in feuch a year, while 70U were in
the city of CiucinnatL'you did thus and eo."
Then, in a tone r.iiidiy expostulatory, he con
tinued: "JIt fnend would I could call yon brother
as I have said before, all your misdeeda are
known to the order to which you are seeking
admission. While crossing the portals which
separate our brother'iood from a wicked and
sinful world, and while about entering upon a
new life, and breathiut a purer atr.Kisphero.

into the wiokedness voi' are so loath to leave

Then to the candidate, in a eaddoned tone of
sJir, there is but one way in which you
can redeem yourself in tLe eyes or the
brotlierhood make a full and coiupjete coa
The feelirc that their secrets micht actnallv
be in possession of to brotherhood, and an
indefinable dread of what that Council of Ten
might do iu the way of punishment, invariably
unlocked the mouth and some of the most se
riate citizens men of good character nd stand
ing were forced to own up to moral trana-
gresniona they would not care to have appear
Ihe candidate Jwas then r.eked if he could
swim. If he answered in the athrmative the
rep y was, ".Let us see you. -II in tho nega
tive the answer was "e vi:i teach you." S;id
blir.tlfolded, he was marched to a far corner of
the room where a stream of water from a tau-
cet kept up the delusion of a prospective bath
and. comm.iuded to disrobe for the plunge.
Four strong brothers then seized him, aud,
with a toes,, placed him with his stomach rest
ing 01-the top of a high stool and told him to
"strikeout"' The delusion was so great that
the poor victim would kick and paw the air
and make the most ridiculous exertions imag
inable Although it was a dry barh.'the new-fledged
brother, had'to be put through the dryiug
machine. This was a lugh, narrow box just
high enough aud wide enough for a man to
stand upright in. When he was in three slats
were inserted to keep him position while he
was going through the drying process. The
box was hung .on pivots between two upright
bars, and had attached to the side a crank, by
which it could be readily and quite rapidly re
volved Ana this was ouiy. one or the little
trial? which the ambitious seeker after the
mysteries of Malta had te undergo. He was
whirled round ani round perpendicularly,
bead over heels tuid heels over head, firit
quite slow aud then- with gradually increasing
peed, until the brea'.h of the human propeller
gave out The frightened fellow was then re
moved to arr easy chair to take a rest, while
-further questions were propounded to him,
aud the sonorors Mt i-c-o-r-d it!" resonned
through the-h.ill sfter each of hid answera
He was then told o prepare for tho "rough and
rugged road." He was placed on all fours,
and, l-y prodding from the rear, forced to
crawl through a lon iron boiler, on which the
members were hammering: thence up a rough
inc iue 10 the top ot a pedestal twelve or fif
teen feet high, from which he was shoved into
a large llaiikt made of sail cloth, with hmj
holes Tor ten men on a etde. Ihen he wai
sent tfyirjg to the ceiling. Down he would corns
aud ud he would go at the rate of thirty times
in sixty seconds, and such a shskiug up k th
poor fellow ext'erieiioed cannot be reali7,ed by
those who have not been similarly favored.
And thus the "initiation" oohtinaed riotil

succession, each one more stupendous than

Consitif ution of the tfnn.
In a paper presented to the French academy
Comptos lieudus, xcvl, Fayo gives his
reasons fcj- believing that our sun and the
other large self-luminous heavenly bodies
have net yet arrived at either a solid or a
liquid state, but are gaeor.s all the way to the
centers. Otherwise, ho eays, the heat radiated
from them would not bo so quickly replaced
by heat from within, and the surface, conse
quently, would saoii jbecoma covered with a
solid, non-lumincu.'i crust
Cagaiard-Latou r has, however, proved by
means of some very remarkable experiments
that a casooua maai can acquire the density of
a liquid without cha nq;ing its state of aggrega
tion, provided ooth temperature and pressure
are lugh enough at or.e time. If, then, the ex
ternal strata, of the solar atmosphere, whore all
matter is 111 an elementary or dissociated state,
should cool snfliciantl v for the elements to en
ter into chemical co'nbinafion, if the vapors of
metallic calcium, m.gue.sium, and silicium.
mixed with oxygon there, on cooling should
form clouds of "lime, magnesia, aud silica, for
example, these clouds would sink
to the interior, where they would
agiiin be dissociated, while at the same
time they would drive ihe hotter particles up
ward, eo that an approximately uniform tem
perature would be maintained until the whole
mass had gradually coolod to such an ex
teiit as to assume the liquid and afterward the
Faye bases his hypothesis on the spectro-
eopic - observations of many years, and on
Cai iington's study of sun spots, which show
that the currents are all on zones parallel to
the equator, while . there are none from the
equator toward the poie. Besides this, the
flattening of the sun and the slow motion of
sun spots uear the poles are more easily ex
plained on this hypothesis of Fare's than on
thae hitherto in voaaa.

it was about time for a smoke. Ho halted,
tilled his pipe, lit it, took a North American

wh-e-w-w-zip away went the entire body of
snow with a wild whirl, and in a moment he
was riding an avalanche 2t feet wide with

lay bare and scarred to the summit with tlu
boulders and stumps holding white f ragmen U

From the Life of Professor De Horgaa.
Dr. Brigge, when quartered in the HJH OO Tin
try, used to meet once a week with the officers
aud others, the custom being to breakfast at
each others houses after tfas sport was over.
On the day for Dx. C's torn te receive his
friends ho awoke ai dawn, and saw a figure
standuiK at his bedside. Having rubbed his
eyes to make sure that he was awake, he got
np, crossed tho room and washed his face in
cold water. He then turned, and, seeing the
same figure, approached it, and recognized a
sister whom he had left in England. Hs uttered
some exclamation and fell down in a swoon, in
which state be was found by the servant who
came to call him for the hunt He was, of
course, unable to join his hunting friends,
who, when at breakfast, on their return,
rallied him as to the cause of bis absence. 1a
the midst of . the talk he suddenly looked up
aghast and said, in a trembling voice: Is it
po8-3ii'e that none of vou seethe woman eUnd
r .1 1 1. Ji .i.i. .i v. - nA
hear of her death.
All present, eixteen in numler, of whom Sir
John Malcolm was one, made an entry into
heir note-books of the occurrence and exact
date. Home months after this, by the first mad
from England that could bring it, time the
news that the sister had died at the v v time
of the vision, having on her death-bed ex
pressed a strong rrxix to see her brother, aud
to leave two young children in his charge.
