Few of the outside public can have any
Idea of the enormous cost of getting a
railway bill through parliameut.- The
parliamentary, nurvejing and engineering
costs of the Kendal and Windermere
company amouutcd to a trifle over 2 per
cent, on the whole expenditure on the
lino. Of parliamentary costs the Brighton
railway averaged 4,oOG per mile; Man
chester and Birmingham, 5,11)0; lilac It
wall. 14.414. These figures are almost
beyond belief, when we consider that
aonie English lines In favorable positions
cost altogether only 10,000 ier mile.
The Brighton lino for two sessions fought
U desperate battle against several other
companies, and when its bill came before
the committee the expenses of counsel
and witnesses amounted to over 1,000 a
day, and the discussion of the measure
lasted fifty days.
The solicitor's bill of the Southeastern
railway contained 10,000 folios, occupy
ing twelve mouths in taxations and
amounted to 210,000. One company
found such difficulty in getting their bill
through Its preliminary stages that at
last, when they had reached tlio long de
sired last stage, they had already spent
nearly a million of money, and this simply
for obtaining the privilege of making the
railway. Of the terrible costs which have
been incurred only to lead to ultimate
failure, one instance will bo sufficient.
Tho discussion upon the Stono and Ilugby
bill lasted sixty-six sitting days, from
February till August, 18i)S; and in flit
year IS 10 tho nieasuro was defeated, aftet
having resulted in a loss of 140,000 to
its unhappy promoters.
It is needless to say that such enormous
-expenditure cripples many a railway, and
prevents its shareholders from ever earn
ing good dividends. Tho ceaseless
energy, untiring perseverance and neat
diplomacy which havo to bo shown ia
pushing a railway bill to a successful is
sue are almost beyond belief; but it is
in itch to bo desired that some means
should be discovered of keeping down tho
expenses which so often go far to ruin a
lino eve beforo it has begun working.

legeneraiion of tlio Human Tcetli.
Tlie law of retardation exhibits itself
in tho teeth of the higher races of mankind
in a highly inconvenient manner. Tho
greatly developed brain requires all the
availaLlo room iu tho skull; there is no
spaco left for tho attachment of muscles
for a powerful jaw. Cooked food also
causes a degeneracy in the development
of the jaw. There is constantly no room
left for either the wisdom teeth or tho
second upper incisors; the wisdom teeth
are retarded, often cause great pain, and
decay early. The second incisors appear
in startling and unexpected places, end
often (in America especially) do not cut
tho gum at all. Professor Cope says that
"American dentists havo observed that
the third molar teeth (wisdom teeth) aro
in natives of the United States very liable
to imperfect growth or suppression, and
to a degree entirely unknown among sav
age or even many civilized races."
The same suppression has been observed
in tho outer pair of superior incisors.
1 his is owing not only to a reduction in
the size of the arches of the jaws, but to
successively prolonged delay in the ap
pearance of the teeth. In the same way
men, and the man like apes, have fewer
teeth than, tho louer monkeys, and these
again fewer than the insectivorous mam
mals to which they are most nearly allied.
When this difference in dentition has
been established, civilized man may claim
to place himself in a new species, apart
from ow savages as well as from high
apes. Mrs. Alice Bodington in Popular
Coroamit Culture In Florida
It is probable that the cultivation of
the cocoanut for profit will always, in
Florida, be confined to the region cn the
Keys and mainland south of the Caloosa
hatchie river, though the palm will con
tinue to be grown for its great beauty, or
a chance crop of nuts, in protected spots,
even as far north as the latitude of Tampa
and Cape Canaveral. The cocoannts pro
duced in Florida are a trifle smaller than
those of the tropics, and aro not con
sidered so valuable for seed, hence most
of those used for planting are procured
from Central America, more especially
from the Bay Islands (Utilla, Bonaco and
Ruatan) and mainland of Honduras.
The nuts that have not sprouted on the
voyage are sometimes planted in nursery
beds and transplanted when a year or
eighteen months old. Only a small per
cent, fails to germinate, though some
times the sprouts are a year or mere in
appearing. The distance apart at which
they are planted varies from fifteen to
twenty-live feet; twenty feet is tho usual
distance. The only cultivation given on
the Keys Is the occasional cutting of the
weeds "and undergrowth in spring and
fall. There is a popular saying that a
bearing cocoa palm will produce one nut
for each day throughout the year, but
this is a little overdrawn, the best trees
producing about 200 nuts per year.

A Hint for Cities.
Nothing could bo better than tho asso
riation recently formed in Philadelphia
j called the Open Spaco association, having
tor its object tiro increase or small parks
and other openings in tho mass of houses
as a sanitary measure, and also for the
comfort itnd refinement of tho people.
This is better than sending crowds of
children out for ojien air durintr a month
of summer. An address bt foro the Mis
souri llortienltuir.1 society, some yours
since, recommended a sy.strr.i allowing lor
au opening every fourth of a tnilo in nil
streets. In this way a city would bo
thoroughly sunuy und at tho santo timo
bo provided with shaded spots. Tho fame
plan included drinking fountains in each
opeuuig provided three times a day with
ico. Old cities can only bo improved.
New cities can be laid out on the better
principles. Such cities could not easily
have portions that fall into degraded
physical habits and become both vilj and
unsightly. To reform men we must re
form homes. New York Graphic.
Machine Noise for Nerves.
It has been suggested that the noise of
machinery has a benciicial effect upon tho
nerves of girls and women employed in
factories. For the first few weeks of her
work amid the ceaseless clatter tho cm
ploye generally has headaches, a tendency
to deafness, and suffers considerably from
insomnia. Later, when she has become
accustomed to it, the headaches disappear,
hearing is remarkably acute, nud her ner
vousness is much abated. Tho result 13
tho reverse cf what would be expected,
but statisticians and hygienists say that
it Is what i3 found in tho majority of
cases. Chicago News.
Tallest Chimney in Existence.
Probably the tallest chimney in the
world is one that is being erected at East
Newark. Its diameter at the base is 28
feet, and it is to bo 9 feet in diameter at
tho top. It is to bo of solid brick to an
altitude of 310 feet. A cast iron rim 20
feet in diametc-r and a bell will surmount
tho whole, making tho total altitude of
the structure 8o.3 feet. There will be
1,700,000 bricks used in its construction,
and its cost will bo 83,000. A view of it
can bo had from trains crossing the New
ark meadows. New York Sun.
Nothing Liko the Dinner Horn.
Japanese gong3 melodiously summon
guests to dinner, and are considered a
great improvement upon tho dinner bell.
Of all devices, however, which have been
invented to call people to meals, inelud
ing the bugle, tho gong, strings of bells
suspended from tho port iero rod. and the
soft spoken waiter, no arrangement sends
such a thrill and awakes such an appetite
as tho farmer's horn. Chicago Herald.
Center of Our Universe
Considering the fact that mauy astro
nomers are inclined to regard Alcyone the
chief star of the Pleiades, as the center
about which tho universe revolves, it
seems quite curious that many savage and
semi -civilized tribes have given this group
of 6tars an extraordinary importance.
Tho peculiar beliefs which they hold con
cerning it appear to be of great antiquity.
Size of the Waist.
Statistics furnished by the Lonfiou stay
and corset makers prove that the average
size of tho female stay wearing waists has
decreased two inches in tho last twenty
five years. One mother had ordered a
corset of sixteen inches to bo worn by her
17-year-old daughter by day, and ouo of
eighteen inches to bo worn at night.

Philosophy of tho Plantation.
Mr. Levi Fisher sold a couple of bales
of last year cotton to the Benson 3 this?
week. Some one told Lini he could have

"Yes," was the replj-; "hut if I had sold
it then I wouldn't have the money now."
