fallacy. It would annihilate every
vestigo of protection, when all 'sound

whoso intellects are cut on the bias,
admit that our country owes its pres

tection. Suppose by taxpaying tho
man- for the benefit of tho few, you aro
increasing tho taxpaying power of the
many, you are adding to the value and
wealth of their holdings, you are in
creasing their resources, you aro sup
plying them with a homo market which
adds ten, yea an hundred fold demand
for their products. Suppose by taxing

J. Tilden, which Harper & B others
publish this week, the author calls at

man, and further says that "he oc
cupied the unique position in our
history of being the only one selected
by the nation for its chief magistracy
who was never clothed with its re
sposibilities " The record of his life
is, in these two volumes, presented by
the one man pre-eminently qualified
for the task the life-long f; iend of the
biography, who has had access to Mr.
Tilden's private correspondence, as
well as tho privilege of choosing ftom
the public papers which were placed
in his hands for this purpose, those
which he deemed of permanent inter
est and value." Mr. Tilden always Kept
copies of eve ything he wrote, whether
of a public or private nature. This
habit has enabled Mr. Bigelow to
throw much light upon his early life,
of which comparatively little is gener
ally known, and without which many
of the incidents of his remarkable care
er are difficult of interpretation. These

Strewn along for a distaneo of f0
yards in tho rear of tho Smithsonian in
utitution are blocks of plaster of paris of
every imaginable shape, some of large
tdze ami others fitted together as if to
form boxes. For tho most part they look
like the refuse of a workshop. Hero and
there one fiagmciitor another is seen to
resemble a part of a lish or other ani
mal, perhaps a tail, or a head with a
pair of for flippers. A big nlab boars the
impression of a snake, as if the creature,
having buried itself in n.nd for tho win
ter, had waked from its torpid state and
crawled away. Other objects yet more
Btrango are faces and various parts or
hamuli bodies apparently fossilized.
These odd looking things aro molds.
Tho Smithsonian institution has been
collecting them for 80 years past, and
some of thorn havt cost a great deal of
money. Quito a number have been f et"""
ed all tho way from AIaska.y ant

,1Qths beitc-- than to make a cast oi it
plaster of paris. Uy this me;.ns its
ehape is copied to perfection, and that is
a great help for museum purposes.
When, a few years ago, a whala was
etranded on tho New England coast, Dr.
Palmer, taxidermist of tho Smithsonian
institution, was sent to mako a copy of
it in papier macho. This ho did that
is to say, ho made a mold of tho cetacean
in plaster, of which ho took several bar
rels full with him, and the papier
macho cast was produced afterward in
Only one-half of tho whale was cast,
however, representing what might bo
termed tho port side of tho animal.
This is now hung up in tho National
museum. On one sido it shows tho ont
Eido of tho creature and from tho other
sido tho inside. It was a clergyman
who on a certain occasion not long ago
was steering soino members of his flock
through the building, and, panning in
front of tho whalo, remarked, pointing
to tho capacious interior of tho great
"Yon see, my dear friends, that there
was plenty of room for Jonah!"
In such ways tho Smithsonian insti
tution has collected molds and made
casts of a great variety of animals, of
ten sending long distances to got them.
Of reptiles alono it has secured several
hundreds, each representing a typical
bpecies, while tho fishes run up to 1,200
and npward. From each plaster mold
about 0 casts may ho made, if do
sired. T. is facility of multiplication
is utilized la a considerable extent in
another branch of tho work not ro
tating to animals at all. To schools and
to museums all ov.t the world the
Smithsonian institution sends sets of
typical aboriginal implemwatsof Amer
ica. These are valuable for purposes of
stdy. A mold from an actxal stone ax
will furnish 50 facsimiles, which only
have to be painted in order L.o look ex
actly liko the original. If more are
wanted, another mold is easily made.
While it would not be easy ta ship a
whale or a walrus to tho Smithsonian
institution, smaller animals are reidily
transported. Nearly all of the creatures
of which theso molds aro made are sen1;
to this city for that purpose. When
practicable, two living specimens are
forwarded. One serves for tho mold.
The other is a model for the artist. Be
fore going further it 6hould be ex
plained that the casts are intended to
represent tho animals themselves in the
museum, and they must be as lifelike
as possible. They aro painted by men
who are skilled in this branch of art.
Before making a mold from a snake
the animal, if alive, receives a dose of
chloroform. It mayor may not recover.
There have been instances where ser
pents have got over the effects of tho
chloroform two or three times in succes
sion, only to be subjected to further
doses and made to serve again and
again. Perhaps an anaesthetized ophid
ian will be coiled gracefully about the
branch of a tree, and the mold will be
taken from branch and snake together,
to bo subsequently painted, of course.
Or, if it were a rattlesnake, it would
probably be coiled in a spiral, as if ready
to strike. In the west wing of the
Smithsonian institution i3 a beautiful
exhibit of the rattlesnakes of tho United
States. They look as if alive, though
only casts, so well are they painted,
with surroundings of herbage, eta, to
It is the same way with reptiles of
other kinds. There are ever so many
queer species of lizards in this country,
particularly in the western deserts. The
horned toad is one of these, not being in
reality a toad at all, though it looks
like ona There are the edible lizards
of Death valley and others which are
able to outrun the fastest race horse.
Suoh creatures as these are easily mold
ed, every scale in their armor being re
produced with wonderful accuracy of
detail. With land mammals it is differ
ent, for a cast of a creature with a fur
coat can hardly be made to look like
life. Nevertheless Dr. Palmer's collec
tion includes casts of portions of many
land mammals. For example, hanging
on the wall of his studio in the rear of
the Smithsonian institution is a plaster
head of a tapir, taken direct from the
animal. When he has occasion to stuff
a tapir, he will not be obliged to guess
at the measurements of that part of the
beast. Close by is a cast from the head
of a sea lion that was killed in the Pa
cific Another cast is from the tongue
of a bear. Some day the taxidermist
will desire to set up a stuffed bear with
its mouth open, and there will be a
tongue ready. There is also a calf's head
which is very lifelike, though it would
not make good soup. Washington Star.

Trullle dogs are very zealous workers
says a writer in Longman's Magazine.
If he were to make himself too ollici
ous his companion would fall on and
worry him. All tho trul'iles do not
grow under ground, and in jtieh a msu
the first few are gathered by the dogs
from the surface. Occasionally the
man is able to pick ono or two himself.
They are not quite ready for taking,
however. No animal seems to be at
tracted by trutlies only half grown and
immature; the scent comes only when
they are ripe. A copse may be hunted
one day till apparently every truflbi
Ivis been collected, ami yet if visited
afier a short interval will probably
yield as many as before. Until they
aro mature the dogs cannot find them.
Just as in the case of mushrooms, this
stage iray be reached at any siz.
Truflles have been obtained two
pounds in weight, and half that size is
common; but the dogs sometimes make
as much fuss over one that has ripened
at the size of a pea as is created by the
greatest monster. It often happens,
also, that time is wasted owing to the
fascination exercised over dogs by
trutlie spawn. It appears to smell like
ripe trutlies, for they scratch and
whine over it, and will not be satisfied
even when their master opens the
soil and lays bare the grayish white,
Every time a truflle is found the dogs
stop and look at the pocket where tho
bread is, in a bogging attitude, and do
not begin to hunt agiin till after the
"repay." Food is doled out in the
tiniest morsels, and yet before the day
is over, though they still mechanically
ask for the reward, they cease to cr.t
it. They are the most tireless creat
uies imaginable. The assiduity of
one in particular is extraordinary. I
have seen her work from dawn until
dark, collecting in that time nearly
eight pounds of trullles, and yet with
as much briskness and apparent en
joyment for tho last as for the first.
