The Lawyer's Chost-
A lawyer and a bishop, perhaps
the bishop should come first, ere
talking, aud this was the manner of
"I have become thoroughly con
vinced," eaid the lawyer, "of the
existence of nocturnal apparitions,
for I have. seen one'.". '..
"Dear me!" exclaimed the bishop.
'I am very curious. Relate the
"I will, my lord, I will," said the
lawyer. 'It was between the hours
of eleven and twelve, Ihadgoueto
bed, and was just falling into my
first comfortable sleep, when I was
wakened by a strange creaking noise.
It sounded as if some one was walk
ing up stairs!. The steps sounded
nearer and nearer, slower and slow
er; solemn and measured they were,
and presently they halted at my
door. I drew the sheet over my
head, and lay there trembling, not
, "Something," continued the lawyer,
"entered my room, and threw the
" shret over my face. I felt rather than
saw a faint yellow glimmering light. -1
could not move at first, but I present
ly managed to gain a little courage. I
drew the sheet cautiously down from
my face, and looked!"
Well!" cried the bishop, excitedly.
"In the center of the room," said
the lawyer slowly, "stood a tall old
man. lie seemed gaunt and worn
with age or hunger,' and his long gray
beard hung half way down his breast.
He was dressed in a queer loose cloak
with a cape, and he wore a broad
leather band about his waist. In one
hand he held a peculiarly shaped lan
tern, from which flowed the yellow
light, making strange ghostly shadows
on the wall behind him. In the other
hand he held a staff, the look ot which
was unpleasant. He stood still in the
middle of the floor, looking at me.
Presently I said, 'Whence art thou?"
What dost thou requirfc?'
"And what did he say?" cried the
bishop, fixing his eyes upon the odd
expression 01 the lawyer's face.
"Ho said" replied the lawyer,
speaking in a hoarse , whisper "he
said: 'I beg yer pardon, sur. I'm the
watchman of the street, sur; an' I
thought 'twould be best for me, sur,
to come up an' tell yer that yer front

A Revengeful Little Bird.
In spite of the poet, "birds" do not
"in their little nests agree," but, like
some people, they have a general
, reputation for amiability, without at
all deserving it. But it seems difficult
to believe that anything with so small
an allowance of brain as a bird has
could find room in itscraniumforever
so small a bit of , memory, and even
meditate and carry out a plan of re
venge, let this is known to be a met.
Years ago, said an English writer, I
found in my garden a nest of the
shrike. The young birds, four or five
in number, were nearly fledged. Hav
ing hoard a good deal of the preda
tory habits of the tribe, I was going
to wring their necks. I had put them
on a hedge, and they sat quite still.but
looked so proud and self-possessed,
and the dark, glittering eyes that were
bent upon me with an expression of
indignant surprise, said so plain
ly, "Have we not as good a right
to live as you?" that my con
science smote me aud I could not
find it in my heart to kill tliem.
I walked away to call mv daughter
and show them to her and when I
came baek they were gone.
One morning last year I was in the
?;arden looking at my roses, when I
elt something hit the back of my
head. Turning round not a little
startled, I saw a bird flying up to the
top of a high tree. When it had got
there, it said, "Check!" Very soon
afterward it came down again, flap-
Eed its wiugs against my head as it
ad done before, flew up to an oppo
site tree, and repeated its "Check!"
At the first glance I had seen that it
was a shrike.
Since then, and for several days, I
could never show myself bareheaded
in the garden of a morning without
being assaulted or saluted in the
same manner, and I soon got quite
accustomed to it. When my head
happened to be covered I was left
alone; and neither my gardener nor
any other frequenter of the garden
was attacked. It is clear that the
bird must have been one of the nest
lings of the preceding spring or one of
their parents, and that it remembered
me probably as the disturber of its
peace, not with any feeline of gratitude,
however, for having spared a life I
might have taken, for it evidently hit
me as hard as it could, and there was
an unmistakable sound of revenge in its

It is only the dishonest trickster

called "sharp practices" to achieve
success in business. The true business

Of Thomas P. Cope, the famous
Philadelphia merchant, this charac
teristic incident is told.
A person highly recommended, ap
proached the Quaker merchant one
day, and invited him to embark in a
certain joint-stock enterprise. In a
careful exposition of the matter he
made it appear that the scheme was
likely to succeed, and that the stock
would instantly run up to a liberal
premium, on being put upon the
"Well," said Mr. Cope, "I am satis
fied upon that point; I bilieve it
would do os thou sayest. But what
will be the real value of the stock?"
"Why, as t that," answered the
speculator, "I cannot say" implying
by his manner what bethought "but
that is of no account, for all we have
to do is to sell out, and make our
thirty or forty per cent profit."
"I'll have nothing to do with it! I'll
have not bin; to do with it!" was the
prompt indiguant reply.
"Aud from that day," the upright
merchant afterwards declared, in re
lating the occurrence, "I marked that

Accuracy and Greatness.
The wonder of Professor Agassix's
knowledge was the completeness of it.
That is the secret of the power of all
great naturalists. They see what es
capes the observation of others, and
are able to discover the meaning of
slight differences that ordinary men
have not noticed at all. A young art
ist once called upon Audubon, the
great student of birds, to show him
drawings and paintings. Audubon,
after examining the work, said, "I like
it very much, but it is deficient. You
have painted the legs of this bird nice
ly, except in one respect. The scales
are exact in shape and color, but you
have not arranged them correctly as
to number." "I never thought of
that," said the artist. "Quite likely,"
said Audubon. "Now upon this up
per ridge of the partridge's leu there
are just so many scales. You have
too many. Examine the legs of a
thousand partridges, and you will find
the scales the same in snimber." The

Plant--A New Use for
An electric locomotive has recently
been constructed at the works ot the
Thomson-Houston Company, which
upon trial pulled eight loaded freight
cars about a yard iu what is reported
to be an entirely satisfactory man
ner. The weight of the locomotive is
given as 43,000 pounds.and its speed,
"when delivering 80 horse-power at
the draw-bar, is about five miles an
hour." The machine was built for the
Whitin Machine Company for use
about their works, and we suppose
there were some peculiar conditions
presented which made such a machine
preferable to the ordinary locomotive
in this case.
Nothing, so far as we have noticed,
has been given as to the expenditure
of coal required to do the work, or, in
other words, the efficiency of the ma
chine; but upon the simple fact that
such a machine has been built and has
drawn cars, we are again entertained
with predictions to the effect that
the days of the steam locomotive are
numberod. One electrical journal says
that "the time will doubtless come
wbn all railway traffic wHl be han
dled by electrically operated trains,"
and that, "in addition to the cheap
ness of construction of the electric lo
comotive, as compared with ths
steam locomotive, it commends itself
because expensive skilled operators
will not be needed to operate it." To
any one who knows anything at all
abot railroading, this latter state
Nint will appear ridiculous, in view
of the fact that the modern railroad
engineer depends more and mora upon
the machinist for that part tf the
work which must depend upon an in
timate knowledge of the machine and
its construction, there being enough
for the engineer to do who under
stands how to manage a train upon
the road, and cet it to its journey's
end safely and on time knowledge
which is largely independent of the
E articular kind of machine Dandled
v him. In short, a very large share,
if not almost all of the skill acquired
by locomotive engineers would be re
quired just the same, whether steam
or electricity were used aa motive
The Distance of the Sun
Many readers may have seen the
transit of Venus in 1882, when the
earth's beautiful sistr planet, mov
ing in its orbit exaotly between the
earth and the sun, appeared upon the
bright disk of the latter in the shape
or a round oiacit spot a worm in
silhouette. Although almost ten
years have elasped, astronomers have
hardlv yet completed the computa
tions and discussions required to give
us the best possible knowledge of the
sun s distance that can on derived
from the observations made at that
Professor Answers has recently
published the results of the observa
tions made by the German astrono
mers during both the transit ot lHSJi,
and the previous transit of Venus iu
1874. After carefully comparing the
measurement made on the two oc
casions, and correcting, as nearly as
possible all the known errors, he
finds for what is kuown as the sun's
parallax, 8".880. This simply
means that half of the diameter of the
earth as seen from the sun
would subtend an angle of eight
seconds and eight hundred and
eihgty one-thousandths of a sec
ond. The distance of the sun, as indi
cated by the parallax given above,
would be 02,059,700 miles. But ow
ing to probable errors in the observa
tions which cannot bo corrected, the
parallax is uncertain to the extent of
about one four-hundredth part either
way, so that the true distance may be
as great as 92,289,700 miles, or as
small as 91,829,700 miles.
This German computation makes
the sun's distance somewhat less than
has usually been assumed in recent
text-books of astronomy. Other meas
ures based on the transits of 1874
and 1882 have varied from 91,850,
000 miles up to 93,428.000 miles, tho
number generally preferred being
about 92,900,000 miles; although the
distance corresponding to the paral
lax adopted for use in tire nautical al
manac is about 92,400,008 miles.
At first sight it may appear surpris
ing that there should be such wide dif
ference in the various measures, but
really the differences are not as ser
ious as they appear to be. The sun is
a body about 806,000 miles in diame
ter, so that the probable error, one
way or the other, in any of the meas
ures given above does not amount to
more than about one-quarter of the
sun's own diameter, while the varia
tion of the distance in the course of
every year, owingto the elliptical form
of the earth's orbit, is more than a
dozen times as great as the error in
question, and t wice as great as the dif
ference between the extreme measures,
In an mterestingpaperoninsectivor
ous plants, read before the Royal
Horticultural Society, and now pub
lished in the society's journal, Mr. R.
Lindsay refers to the experiments by
which Mr. Francis Darwin has shown
the amount of benefit accruing to
insectivorous plants from nitrogen
ous food. Mr. Lindsay says his own
experience in tho culturo of Diomea is
that wheu two sets of plants are
grown side by side under tho samo
conditions in every respect, except
that insects are excluded from the one
and admitted to the other, the latter,
or fed pTants, are found to be stronger
and far superior to tho former during
the following season. He point s out the
importance of remembering that the
natural conditions under which these
plants are found are different from
what they are- under cultivation. In
their native habitats they grow in
very poor soil aad make feeble roots,
and under these conditions may
require to capture more insects by
their leaves to make up for their root
deficiency. Under culture, however,
fairly good roots for the size of plant
are developed. "Darwin," says Mr.
Lindsay, "mentions that the roots of
Dionaea are 'Wiry small: those Ot a
moderately fine plant which he exam
ined consist ed or two brandies, aooct

Vaccination a Preventive of In
fluenza. Dr. Julius Althans's preventive
against the influenza epidemic will
cau.e a sfcock to the feeling of anti-
vaccinationists. It is simply whole
sale re-vaccination of the population
with animal lymph. This well-known
physician tells us that, according to
data furnished by Dr. Goldschmidt,
re-vaccination ot this systematic kind
has been lessening the occurrence and
fatality of influenza in the German
Army, where re-vaccination is en
forced at stated intervals. It is ob
served that the general conditions of
life amongst the troops rather tend to
promote than to hinder the spread of
such an epidemic amongst them, as
they are more exposed to the inclem
encies of the weather, have to under
go great fatigues, are badly fed, and
sleep in overcrowded dormitories.
Yet, in spite of all these drawbacks, it
has been found that, while influenza
affected 12 per cent, of the civil popu
lation of Berlin, and as much as 04
per cent, of that of Paris, its preva
lence in the German Army amounted
to only a trilling fraction over 11 per
cent. A number of garrisons were
entirely spared, whihs the civil popu
lations of the towns where .they were
stationed suffered severely, and no
garrison was ever effected where the
civil population enjoyed immunity.
Fortune has smiled on the explorers
in the field of electrical science, says
an American paper. No scientific
body in the United States has so
many millionaires as the American
Institute of Electrical Engineers. At
the top of the list is Alexander Gra
ham Bell, whose profits on the tele
phone are represented by eight figures.
Next conies Edisou, with a seven-figure
fortune. Brush, of electric light
fame, and Elihu Thomson, whose
hirancial future is now peuiaps bright
er than that of any of the others, are
more than millionaires. Frank J.
Sprague was a junior officer in the
United States Navy six years ago.
He is now living in the mansion which
was built for the Grants. His com
pany sold out to the Kdison Company
for $1,000,000, and half of it went to
the inventor. Franklin L. Pope, of
New York, and a suore of others have
independent fortunes. Most of these
men were . telegraph operators, and
most of them began their experiment
iug and study without a dollar.
An Interesting Telescope.
A four-inch equatorial telescope for
the use of schools and private observ
ers has been introduced by Mr. F. W.
Gardam, 58, Ann street, New YorK,
at a cost which will bring it within the
reach of many. It is mounted on a
handsome tripod of black walnut, and
the axes are so curefully ground that
the motion is very smooth. A star
can be kept in view by a simple move
ment in right ascension. A' balance
weight is attached to the declination
axis, so that the telescope is perfectly
balanced iu any position. The instru
ment is furnished with one erecting
and four celestial eye-pieces, giving
powers from 70 to 280. The object
glass, a compound achromatic lens of
four inches aperture and fifty inches
focal length, is guaranteed to show all
the delicate test objects given in
Webb's "Celestial Objects, for Com
mon Telescopes," for example, the
solar spots, mountain shadows inthe
moon, Jupiter's belts and satellites,
the crescent of Venus, aud so on.
Steam Used for Extinguishing Fire
Recently a fire broke out in one of
tho workshops of tho Spetz Spinning
Mill, at Isenheivn, Alsace. The pro
prietor ordered tho use of steam iu
addition to other appliances for sub
duing tho fire. The .stop value havhig
been opened, the steam escaped under
high pressure, filling the workshop
and suffocating the fire. At first the
steam, being condensed, saturated
with moisture all the combustible ob
jects in the room. More steam being
added, tho firo was completely extin
guished. The smoldering bales of cot
ton could then easily be washed out
with water. Upon close examination
it turned out that much less damage
had been done to the building, the
machinery, and tho goods than if
water had been used for extinguishing
A New Use for Aluminum,
According to a Pittsburg dispatch,
an order for five hundred tons of al
uminum has been placed with the
Pittsburgh.Reductiou Company, to be
used for thy equipments of the Ger
man army. Capt. Hunt, of the Pitts
burgh company, is reported as say
ing: "The emperor desires the can
teens of his soldiers to bo made of al
uminum. There are two reasons for
this, namely; its lightness and cleanli
ness. It will be used also for buckles,
and it may be brought into use in the
manufacture of cartridge shells. The
new smokeless powder cartridges
haw brought ubout a demand for al
uminum, and other European powers
are also considering tho advisability
of using it.1'
A new method of solidifying petro
leum has been demonstrated by Mr.
L'henali at the Solidified Petrol.-um
Corporation, Gainsborough Road,
Haokney Wick. A quantity of crude
petroleum is mixed with 15 percent, of
certain chemicals, and the vessel con
taining it is placed in boiling wa
ter, then heated in a fnrnuee at a tem
perature of 4t0deg.to oOOdcg. Falir.,
the mixture being stirred the while.
When it is cool the mixture can be
pressed uito blocks for transport
and use as fuol. The process takes
half an hour and is inexpensive, and
the "briquets" produced burn freely,
with only a small percentage of ash.

Deak Sir: Referring to yours of June Oth, 1891, will say, that we have
tested one of your Eureka Gates in right-of-way fence, east of Waterloo, and I
learned from Supon isor Moran that it works nicely. I believe that it is the
" coming Gate," and is the best in use for right-of-way and farm fences.
