An English botanist estimates that tha
tropi-s have from 40,000 to 50,000 Kiecii8
m pl;mts, the north temjierature zone
loiit 20,000 KpiH-ies, and the'Arctie gives
iilxnit or lews than 1,000, with some 2,000
"among the Alpine flora, or aliout y,000
sjM-eies enjoying an Arctic climate.
.Small as thu colli weather class is, it
amounts to more than mott jxiple give it
credit, for having, the jiopular opinion
luing that the jnilar regions and snow
el;i I iiif.iiulaiu tojs are practically devoid
of vegetation. It is singular, tx, that
while there are 72 kimls of flowers in
the Arctic, regions, within the Antarctic
circle a flowering plant has never yet
been found. Every thing Is against plant
lib- at that end of the earth's axletree.
The weather is more nevcre throughout
the year, and there are few tracts of
kind of great extent on which plant life
can flourish; and we have already seen
that it ii well inland on large land areas
when such life flourishes the best in the
Arctic, when; it can al isorb some of tho
!.. ' '' heat that is coining down, without
beiii'. chilled to death bv contiguous ice
Dul of these 7C2 kinds of flowering
plants in the Arctic, only BOine 50 of
them, as far as we know, or about one
li)'ie(.,th, are wholly resident of that
zone. Thus it is seen that a nival or Al
pine flora, as compared with that of tho
Arctic, is a much more distinctive one,
or has more sjKcies wholly its own in
proportion to the total number found.
'I he polar flowers seldom have any icr
funa , and the few that exhibit this dc
bjbifcd quality, however feeble, are, I
thin!., from that class that have crept
over the cold lx.rder marked by the Arc
tic t iicle; or, in short, none of the lifty
mentioned Esquimau flowers, wo
niiylit call them, in a popularway have
any appreciable odor.
The color of these boreal blossoms aro
generally of the cold tints, as if in har
mony with tho chilly burrou ridings, in
stead of the warm hues that would break
in upon the desolation with double effect
by jdi'vr contrast whero bo few cheering
sights are to m seen. "White and light
yellow prirdomiuate, and these colors
been i associated with frosts and cold
weather, for it apiears that those flowers
we call 4 'ever Listings," and which aro
the longest to defy the nipping3 of the
coining winter weather, are mostly tinted
like the northern snows and yellow
northern lights. It is in the depths of
Old Ocean that we find some of the
larg: st expressions of plant life in the po
lar xono. Here, within a short distance
of shore, are colossal kelps and other life
that grow throughout the year; of
cour-.o, vegetating the most in the short
Jmd plants, as already said, are pig
mies compared with those of tho sea, or
even the corresponding class in the lower
latitudes, and this dwarfed condition, a
naturalist tells us, is not due 60 much to
the intense cold in the Arctic winter as
to the fact they do not get enough
warmth in summer to develop them per
fectly. Dr. Joseph Hooper mentions it
as a rare property of one of the gramineas
(th grasses), TrL-tetum Subspicatuni, that
ir is the only polar species known which
is equally an inhabitant of the Arctic and
Nearly all of the plants of these cold
countries are of the biennial or perennial
sorts, as the season ia too short to give
annuals tho whole length of time they
demand for the maturing of their fruit
to injure the next season's growth. These
leronnials act like our hardy spring flora,
by rapidly pushing their growth before
the snow is ah off the ground and with
the very first cessation of the vernal cold.
I have seen flowers in bloom so close to
the snow on King "William's land that I
think the foot could be put down and
leave an impression on the edge of the
juiow and crush tho flower at the same
step: while Jliddendorf, a Siberian
traveler of note, says that he has seen c
rhododendron in that country iu full
It is hardly to be expected that any
u-eiul or cultivated plants should be
found within the limits of the frigid
zones, and yet both are known in this
nnex peeled jwal'ty, There is the scurvy
grass, a rough cruciferous plant; that is
iamous for the good it has done among
explorers in that rough clime in contend

grown in god crops as high as Alten, in
r.crway, in latitude 70 .degs. north, or
about 2-jO miles above the Arctic circle.
II is Jio.e, July and August in growing,
and tho rapidity of hi3 polar growth
tinder a never setting sun may ba plainly
sho-.vu by stating that these barley stalk's j
have been known to grow two and a half
inches hi twentfour hours. "Where the
hoi. i held by little valleys this Nor
wegian barley may, in favorable seasons,
be ready to cut in about two months
alter sowing; and thus two crops secured

of its two crop3if certain growths in one

in tho province of Theleniarkeu tho
place from whenca pomes the celebrated
snowshoe men of NoFway-that a pertain
farm known as the Triset gets the first
syllable, tri (three), from the three crops
once reaped on the land in one season.
Kye. which is not so hardy, is cultivated
in Norway for 150 to 200 miles above the
Arc lie circle, and even in Sweden it is
carried up to that line. Barley was
raised in Iceland from 870 to 1400, and
then abandoned for more profitable cattle
raising, but is again being cultivated to
avcid famines which are sweeping that
land. Lieut. Schwatka in "Woman.

A Boston writer tella a nice story
about how he found among the wretched,
bedraggled horses of tho fish peddlers a
faultleb3 saddle mire. It is jKissiblo for
the most excellent and most lovable ani
mals to fall into the hands of brutal
masters, and dio "unhonored and un
sung." But good care aud skillful hand
ling would restore many such. If tho
story puts hundreds of kindly people on
the watch to rescue rossible pets from
the crowds of animals that drudge about
our city streets, with all the cpirit of a
noble horse beaten out by beetle headed
owners, it will fulfill tho evident object
of the writer. Globo-Democrat.

Tho tracks of all the roads leading from
the country palaces to the capital, over
which the czar may travel, are patroled
by soldiers, and one can see tents all
along the line at intervals of a few hun
dred yards. This precaution is made
necessary by tho many attempts that have
been made to wreck trains on which
members of the imperial family have
been or have been supposed to bo passen
gers. There was ono terrible danger
from this sourco which will never be for
gotten, as well as several escapes from
lesser peril. William Eleroy Curtis in
Tho Strength of Wood.
In a paper on the strength of different
kinds of wood for building purposes,
Professor Johnson calls attention to the
fact, as now demonstrated, tliat many
cheaper kinds of timber may prove moro
valuable for structures than more ex
pensive varieties, which have been sup
posed to bo stronger, and, therefore,
more desirable. Thus, pine supports or
pillars have been found stronger than
oak ones, when tested in large bauiples.

THE PARKS OF HAVANA.
The Wholo City Is a Fairyland by Right.
A Ort-at Outdoor I'arlor.
All IIaana is in the parks or cafes or
on the housetops at night. As thf! sun
goes down it seems as though from evi ry
quarter come thousands for the nightly
outing. The streets, plazas ami cafes
dazzle with light flaring from t' - quaint
est of burners nnd frame, and tin
brilliant colored glass, so universally and
richly usitl in decoration, adds a li-awiy
and charm to countless pleasing scenes.
There is music everywhere. 1 !ere in
a half lighted, richly decorated lalcony
is a group of men and women chatting
in low, musical tones, or listening to
sweet notes of 1 ho guitar. In this ou
trada, with u court filled with rich lights,
plants, flowers, and quaint corridors be
hind, in au almost oriental background,
aro jiorhaps several families seated half
out U'on tho street, and among them
somewhere is music. Here, there and
everywhere upon tho housetops, tanong
luxuriant gardens, are merry crowds
singing, playing or dancing. The. half
lights of tho night hide and reveal.
Sound and light and shadow mingle until
tho ear and sight aro ravished by what
is heard .and ecn, and what is listened
for and heard in thought. Melody in
word, laugh and song, and from musical
instruments of every nature and in every
placo nothing loud and sonorous, hut
everything soft and dreamful pulses i:i
harmonious chords above and over ami
through tho streets.
The whola city is as a fairyla:id by
night. It is tho moro lxjwildering to the
beholder, becauso thevo aro in i- r..
mindedness c::l oj..iLuuju..i. t....i
make melody and gayety not only with
tho well conditioned, but as truly within
tho grimy walls of the charcoal man's
little stall ; down at tho waterside among
tho swarthy lioteros; over there in Keg
la with tho toil Ecourged stevedores and
lancheros; up Balquarte, way among the
labor bent lavenderas; and in every odd
and moldy corner whero human lifo
lasts in layers, it lights up all with a faca
as free of caro a3 if ever unknown. All
this comes to you, and you know tho
fact. You leave thoso who like to quar
rel over tho involved ethics. But all this
time, when an entire gret.t city has sud
denly resolved itself into a vast pleasure
garden, so completely that its influence
seems even to have touchod and trans
formed, without exception, tho direst
conditions, the gayer and more restless
elements swarm the pasoos and plazas,
and no European city presents more bril
liant scenes. But in thi3 one city of the
world, this single rich blossom of tho
tropics, all its people, in these hours, aro
pleasure givers and pleasure receivers,
and that, too, whatever tho individual
condition. There hi none so high and
haughty, or low and listless, as to think,
or dare, refusal of this individual conces
sion, or gift of word and . way, to this
universal something we would bo quick
to call among cur good selves true evi
dence of true lightheadedness and joy.
I do not behove the world has elsewhere
such a condition and etudy.
In these nightly carnivals fully 10,001
equipages, filled with richly attired and j
merry occupants, may bo seen. During
tho early evening tho favorite drive is
along Calle Anclia del Norte, by the rca.
Later the Calzado do la Iveina and tho
Paseo del Tacon are sought. As tho
night advances tho great center of thk;
brilliant life and luxurious activity is in
the vicinity of tho larger city parks, to
which the paseos and the Prado lead,
where military brnds discourse tho lively
or sensuous airs of Spain.- Hero thfcis
hosts of pedestrians; but, instead of the
rudeness and clamer usual in f uch ecu-
courses in other cities, every frequenter
cf tho locality only intensifies tho every
whero manifest chivairoua courtesy and
charming consideration that so dis
tinguish them. It is as though hero
were a mammoth reception of the courtli
est of men and women. Indeed, it is tho
great outdoor parlor of a great city,
where every city is a noblo guest, j a
tho pauEC-3 cf the music promenading ia
continuous. It would not then be uncom
mon for you to see at ono time, an 1 iu
the one place on tho globe where that is
possible, 10,000 women of surpassing
beauty, of wonderful win somen ess of
marvelous grace. It is r.oi until somo
tim after midnight ;hat the crowds seem
to diminishj for at soma hour of tho
evening every gentlemen and every
senora and renorita iu'the city makes it a
social obligation or pleasure to be present.
But from midnight until morning, by an
unwritten law, the parks and paseos are
in possession of less dense gatherings,

CIoLh 9Iii.de Non-inflammable.
The usefulness of tungstate of soda in
imparting the quality of non-inflammability
to various materials is now largely
utilized. Cloth, when soaked in a solu
tion of this kind, say cf 20 per cent., and
allowed to dry, will not burst into a flame
when brought into contact with tho fire,
the simple effect of tho latterbeing to
cause the cloth to slowly carbonize or
smolder. In preparing linen and light
muslin garments in this manner the solu
tion is usually mixed with the starch, and
the addition of about 3 rer cent, of phos
phate of soda to the tungstate is also said
to be an improvement. Wood can b-j
treated in a similar manner, but it is
rather an expensive process when under
taken on a considerable scale, and u.i it
does not render the wood really incom
bustible, is not important. New York
A Dentist's Testimony.
"What has been your experience, dcv
tor. as to the effect of gas uin your dif
ferent patients?" asked a gentleman of a
well known dentist in this city. -I have
invariably found, " responded the doctor,
'that if the parties partaking are profes
sional . people they will in their uncon
scious state call out things that relate to
their profession. For instance, not a
great while ago, a celebrated baritone of
one of our ojera c6rapanies, while under
the influence, sang two or three barsot
his part, and again one of our auctioneers,
while in the same state, shouted that if
the people did not -bid any faster bids
would be closed. Thi3 you will find is
the usual case with all, and if ypu have
jmy secret you wish to keep steer clear if
the gas or you will surely betray it."
