Ciant Glaciers of Alaska.
Tlie southwestern face of St. Elias, it
is Kif-s to say. will never be climed: it
prese.its a, mass of broken snow, beauti
ful, yet forbidding. Wo estimated the
summit tr lw nltrnt. 7 000 Twt nlviv na
making its total height 18.500 feet. It ! phywolosy. Rmall thanks would
seeined to us that the coast survey in
giving it 19,500 feet was too liberal in its
figures. The day was cloudless; the
whole scene was one that baffles descrip
tion. It surpassed in grandeur, though
not in picturesqueness, the very best that
tbe Alps can offer. Roughly speaking,
the eye encountered for miles nothing
but snow and ice. I had never be fore
thoroughly realized the vastness of the
Alaskan glaciers, though during the past
fortnight we had 6pent many a weary
hour in crossing immense moraines.
One of the glaciers we looked down
upon was not less than 6ixty miles long,
while another attained a breadth of
twenty-five or thirty miles. From below
I bad gained the impression that ice
covered with debris predominated over
white ice. I now saw that this was not
the case, and that tho ratio of debris to
clear ice was probably not greater than
that of ten to one. When standing at a
considerable height one appreciates for
the first time the beautiful curves
through w hich tho glaciers alter their
course. We noticed this in particular in
looking down upon tho Agassiz glacier,
(t appeared at one point to describe
three or four arcs of concentric circles
it!i radii varying from eight to ten
miles, each arc being indicated by a
light coating of stones, the w holo resem
bling an immense race course. Through
the middle-of the Tyndall glacier, and
for a distance of several miles, two light
streaks of moraine ran parallel to each
other, presenting from above the appear
ance of a huge serpent crawling the
length of the glacier. Scribncr's Magazine.
Cut it is not so. The parent himself, as
is well known, can molify and make
worse or better bctii his constitution and
his character. Kiaiilaily, the child's
constitution and character may bo
changed, until, by the operation of the
law of heredity itselJ', a not very remote
descendant may be tho antipodes of his
early progenitors. The discovery of an
existing inherited taint of disease or of
vice in a child is not a cause for regret,
but for thankfulness. The disease '.hit
itself is, of course, to be deplored, and
so is the inherited vice: but its early dis
covery is to bo hailed with gratitude as
pointing out lines of physical and moral
treatment which may lead to the prac
tical cnieeuienient ot me taint or even
to its eradication. London Hospital.
Her F:t(!ifr's Poor Cigars.
A well known congressman, who loves
a cigar, good or bad. had a box in his
library which was bad, and his daughter,
quietly threw them away. That even
ing a distinguished judge called, and the
M. C. during the evening asked him to
smoke, and went for his cigars. They
were gone, of course, and the judge made
good tho loss by getting a couple out of
his own pocket, and tho two friends set
tled down for a smoke. In the midst of
it tho daughter came in.
"Whew!" she said, supposing her father
had laid in a new stock. "Whewl"
"What is ifr" asked tho TI. C.
"Smoking those cabbage leaves again,
are vou? Thev're awful, papa; eimply
T. f that time tiie juoge uogan to won'icr
what lie was getting, the Id. C. went into
a laughing lit and the girl concluded ;he
bad made a mistake and t'ew. Later the
11. C. e. plained to the judge, and all was
forgiven. Washington Critic.
Tlio I'opo u Great Chens Player.
Tho popo has a weakuess for chess.
IIo is a very line player, and in the
amateur ranks is said to have few
superiors in tho knowledge of gambits
and openings. There is one priest in
Porno who ba3 the especial honor of
being the jiopo's adversary over the
hoard. This priest Father Giella has
played chess with Leo Pecci for thirty
two years past. When Cardinal Pecci
was raised to the papal throne. Father
Giella, who was then in Florence, got an
invitation to proceed to Pome and take
up hi.-j quarters in tho Vatican. Giella is
hot tempered, and has been known to
look very black indeed at the vicar of

Cost of Water Ciis.
A great many people think water gas
cheaper because it is made out of oil.
This L? a mistake. The greatest differ
ence between the cost of coal and water
gas ij in the matter of labor. The mak
ing of coal gas requires skilled labor of
the best kind, and at better compensa
tion than is usually given to labor of
this class. The work is very hot and re
quires tho closest attention, so that the
chanco man cannot be engaged for it.
The man who does it acceptably must
have been educated in it, and must be
steady and devoted to hi3 work. In the
manufacture of water gas this labor is
cut oiF, and the saving represents the
large part of the difference between the
cost of the gas manufactured from coal
and that produced from oil. St. Louis
