The Paraeea nd the Dead Prince.
In connection with the expansions of
Borrow evokeu throughout all parts of
our Indian empire by the Bail death of
the Duke of Clarence one of the most
remarkable perhaps was the meeting of
the Parsee residents of Dombay. The
Parsees assembled the other day in the
beautiful Wrulia Fire temple under the
presidency of Sir Jamsetjee Jejeebhoy,
the well known Bombay millionaire and
philanthropist. After prayers and ref
erences to the duty of loyalty to rulers
as inculcated by the Zoroastrian theol
ogy and philosophy, the duntoor, or
Pardee high priest, observed that the fire
that was kept burning in the censer be-
I 'ore the assembly was the emblem of
the lignt ot heaven, ana before that nre
they must all earnestly solicit and pray
to the Almighty Ahura Muzda that be
might grant a peaceful repose to the
KTiirit of the rnval nrinpA in the ptcnia.
, auo(je of paradise,
J After invokin t
the archangels and an
gels to guard the prince's 6pirit from
harm, the prayer specially composed by
the dustoor for the occasion ended with
beseeching the continuance of the safety
and prosperity that the Zoroastrian com
munity enjoy under the rule of her
majesty the queen-empress. All this is
touching, characteristic as it is of that
loyal and generous spirit so consistently
displayed by our Parsee friends in In
dia's commercial metropolis. Colonies
Automatic PoKtaJ Call Box.
A very ingenious automatic machine
has been established near the letter box
at Charing Cross station for the collec
tion of letters to be forwarded by the
postoffice express service. It is in elec
trical connection with the postal tele
graph office opposite, the station. By
dropping a penny into the slot and pull
ing out the slide, a brown colored en
velope is delivered. This envelope con
tains another envelope and a card. The
communication is intended to be written
on the card, which is then inclosed in
the white envelope, and this, with the
fees for delivery, which have been fixed
at threepence per mile, is reinclosed in
the outer envelope and deposited in the
box behind the flap, which bears the
printed instructions. The act of with
drawing the slide, sends the call signal
to the telegraph office, and a messenger
is at once dispatched to collect the spe
cial letters. Electrical Review.
A Hindoo' Purification.
A Fyzabad Hindoo who had been out
casted for the offense of eating cooked
food in a railway train while there were
persons of other castes in the same car
riage with him has been restored to
caste. The erring individual, although
not a wealthy man, had sufficient means
to pay the cost of purification. He was
first weighed in pice, and was valued at
180 rupees, and after that in wheat.
After the weighing he was made to sit
on a square stone and his body was cov
ered with dirt, the face only excepted;
he was then taken up by two men and
thrown into the river, and after a good
bath he came out and was received by
the Brahmans, fully restored to caste
fellowship. The Brahmans informed the
purified individual that a great favor
had been conferred on him in weighing
him in copper instead of silver. Lon
Odd Discovery In a, Ixg.
A lumberman at Wytopitlock recent
ly split open a hollow maple log and
j found among rotten leaves twenty-six
mice, all dead. There were three species
in the collection the long tailed or kan
garoo mouse, the white bellied wood
mouse and the common short tailed field
mouse. The chopper thinks they crowd
ed up into the hollow in order to keep
' warm, and the hole through which they
enterea navmg cioseu up, mey siarveu

ly, although civilized men have been
known to feed on one another undet
similar conditions. Lewiston J onrnaL

Asleep for Over four Month.
Cases of prolonged eleep are by no
means so numerous that we can iifTm-i!
to piws over the mention of an ;xh.m
of this condition at present excivi
the minds of (icrman physicians. 'I

recent bulletin mentions that he has 11 1
last awoke. Naturally the case is re
ferred to the records of cataleisy for its
explanation, although it is pointed out
that 4 months is a very extended jk
riod even for cataleptic sleep.
In this cae the limbs were rigid,
which of course pointed to the exist
ence of a cataleptic condition, bnt the
body itself showed no sign of lieing in
any unusual state. It remained still
and placid: the chest rose and fell regu
larly, and the skin was of a natural
color, the face being described as pre
senting a healthy appearance. In the
recent reports it was stated that Latus
had become less rigid as regards his
body itself, while Blight movements
were noticed prior to his waking.
Curiously enough, while the hair of
the head has grown largely, the beard
has not exhibited any increase. Feed

One Way for a Star to It Tighten.
Director Keeler, of the Alleghany ob
servatory, was one of the first to receive
the news of the recent discovery of the
new star in Auriga, but on account of
the cloudy weather and Pittsburg smoke
shutting out all observation he has not
yet clearly seen the visitor among the
heavenly bodies. In speaking of it he
said: "The new star, 1 think, has been
caused by collision. That is, however,
only supposition. It is possible that it
was formerly covered with a crust that
in some disturbance was broken and flew
off into space, leaving the molten inte
rior visible to astronomers. Such occur
rences are common. The outside of tl"
body becomes chilled, and losing itd
brillianc cannot be seen.
"If then the crust is broken by any
disturbance the 6tar can be seen and is
heralded as a new body, when in reality
it may have been occupying the same
position for thousands of years." Pitts
Money In Minerals.
There is money in minerals, if you get
hold of the right kind. The South Af
rican Diamond trust that recently forced
up the price of its commodity by con
solidating the various companies and by
occasionally suspending operations to
make a scarcity of the stones has cleared
a pretty penny. During its last fiscal
year it gathered up 2,195,112 carats of
gems, on which was realized nearly
$16,440,000. While the surplus stock of
stones has been disposed of, an immense
quantity of "blue stuff" the local mat

A Substitute for the Dynamo.
The oft discussed problem of a substi
tute for dynamos in electric lighting by
providing a cheap, inodorous, inoffen
sive electric battery, capable of supply
ing sufficient light for domestic uses, is
again claimed to be solved by M. Pou
droux, of Paris. ' By his new battery he
claims the ability to employ a great sur
face of zinc in a cell of the desired mod
erate capacity, containing but a small
quantity of liquid, and with the advan
tages of the ingredients of the solutions,
as he states, being very cheap. St.
