The Kfrectlvenesa of Modern Guns.
The prominence given to a lecture by
the German doctor, Dr. Billroth, on the
wounded in war, has induced Mr. Archi
bald Forbes to write on the subject.
Dr. Billroth estimates that of tne cas
nalties'at Weissenhurg and Worth dur
ing the Franco-German war, 80 per cent,
of all the wounded were caused by rifles,
15 per cent, by the large guns, and not
quite 5 per cent, by the lance and sword.
Mr. Forbes, however, says that the sta
tistics for the whole of the war on the
German side prove that over 90 per cent
were due to rifle fire, about 9 per cent,
to artillery, and about 1 per cent, to cold
The smallncss of the mortality from
the French artillery is explained by the
fact that their artillery was notoriously
badly served. Dr. Billroth believes that
the future will see a still greater pro
portion of deaths resulting from rifle
fire than from shell. Mr. Forbes points
out that, in doing so, no account has
been taken of the probable use of highly
destructive explosives in the shells of
the future. Army and Navy Gazette.
The First Protestant In Japan.
The first Protestant Christian in Ja
pan was one Murata, a military retainer
of the Lord of Saga, in the southern is
land of Kinshiu. In I860 he went to
Nagasaki, by order of his chief, and one
evening, as he was crossing the harbor
in a boat, he picked up a book that was
floating about in the water. The writing
ran from side to side, "like the crawling
of crabs," and upon sending it to one of
the Dutch tnen settled at Nagasaki, he
learned that it was the Christian Bible,
then a proscribed book. Curiosity spur
red him on, and he had one of his as
sistants learn the language of the book
and translate it for him, sentence by
His study was continued in secret.
with a few friends, after his return
home. When a difficult passage was
found, a messenger was sent to Dr. Ver
beck, a well known missionary then in
Nagasaki, for its interpretation. Murata
was afterward baptized, and his name
now stands first on the roll of Protes
tant Christians in Japan. London
Women Taking the Places of Men.
In Holland men can no longer be
trusted to work the switches on the rail
ways, and women now fill their places.
This is a slap in the face indeed to the
male sex, and a great triumph to the ad
vocates of female labor. But we have
yet to see how the thing works. The
men say that there will now be looking
glasses in the switch boxes, and that the
women will never leave them till they
have smoothed their last hair and settled
the bow of their last ribbon, and that in
the meantime there will be collisions;
that when left to themselves they nver
have been in time for the train as pas
sengers, and will not be more punctual
as pointswomen; and, finally, that if they
hear their lover's whistle anywhere in
the neighborhood they will pay very lit
tle attention to that of the locomotive.
If these objections are not valid, con
clude the men, "we are not Dutchmen."
An Old Fashioned Phrase.
There is an old fashioned phrase cf
hospitality which consists of only two
words, and I find it a parallel to the
Greek salutation, and like it. a com
mand. "Sit by," says the comfortable
New England farmer to his guest be
neath his roof. Now compare this com
manding phrase with the more modern
polite question, "Will you partake of
refreshments?" which is as empty and
void as a Chinese invitation, and throws
the choice of acceptance on the guest

other a mere dead formality. Detroit

When the horse comes in from his

A Care for Laziness.
A traveler in the course of a morning
walk in Amsterdam camo upon a group
gathered around a well, into which a
strongly built man had just been let
down. A pipe, whose mouth was at the
top of the well, had been opened, and a
stream of water from it was flowing into
the well and gradually filling it. The
man below had quite enough to do, if he
did not want to be drowned, to keep the
water out by means of a pump which
was at the bottom of the well.
The traveler, pitying the man, asked
for an explanation of what seemed to be
a cruel, heartless joke.
"Sir," replied an old man standing
near, "that fellow is, as you see, healthy
and strong. I have myself offered him
work twenty times, but he always al
lows laziness to get the better of him,
and will make any excuse to beg his
bread from door to door, though he
might easily earn it if he chose.
"We are now trying to make bom real
ize that he must work. If he uses the
strength that is in his arms he will be
saved; if he lets them hang idle he will
be drowned. But look," continued the
old Dutchman as he went to the edge of
the well, "the fellow finds out that he
has muscles already; in an hour we shall
let him out with better resolutions for

When Did the "Glass Ate" I'egin?
So far as research has been able to de
termine, glass was in use 2,000 years be
fore the birth of Canst, and was even
then not in its infancy by any manner
of means. In the Slade collection at the
British museum there is the head of a
Hon molded in glass, bearing the name
of an Egyptian king of the eleventh
dynasty. This is the oldest specimen of
pure srlass bearing anything like a date
now known to exist. The invention now
known as "bleezing," the mode of var
nishing pottery with a thin film of glass,
is believed to date back to the first Egyp
tian dynasty. Proof of this is found in
the pottery beads, glass glazed, found in
the tombs of the age above referred to.
