LIQUID NERVES ARE FOUND
New Discovery With Regard to Phe
nomena of Sense of Sight An
nounced by Scientists.
Manchester.—A new discovery with
regard to the phenomena of the sense
of sight has been announced by Dr.
F. W. Edridge-Green, an eminent au
thority in visual research. He has
found by an interesting series of ex
periments and tests that the process
of vision is not the simple transmis
sion by the optic nerve to the brain
of objects photographed on the retina.
The discovery, in non-tcchnical lan
guage, amounts to this: In front o'
the retina there is a email chamber
or sac of clear liquid which is in con
stant motion of currents or eddies.
Doctor Green finds that this liquid
itself contains distinct perceptive ’
nerve power which plays an important
part in conveying impressions to the
In other words, this wonderful liquid
contains liquid nerves, so to speak,
which transmit to the understanding
a considerable part of the impression
it receives of color, form, etc.
WAY OF SAVING OLD BOOKS

Berlin.—Chemists of the Royal
Prussian laboratory in Gross-Lichter
fvlde near Berlin have succeeded in
compounding a preparation which pro
tects ancient books and manuscripts
from decay. The new preparation is
described as a cellite-solution and is
now being manufactured in bu,k by
an Elberfeld chemical firm.
All state archives and libraries
throughout Germany have been noti
fied that the new substance should
be adopted for the preservation of val
uable records and documents. As an
illustration of German thoroughness it
may be mentioned that the laboratory
chemists previously tested every grade
and kind of paper in the market with
the solution before recommending it
for general adoption.
SYMBCLS MARK IRISH CHILD
Mayo. Ireland.—An extraordinary
story of a child marked by the symbols
of the Passion in Klltlmagh convent.
County Mayo, is told by a representa
tive of the News of this city.
A girl, aged thirteen, has been a
boarder in the convent for the past
three or four years. She is described
as a docile, affectionate child, and is
a great favorite with the nuns. About
three weeks ago one of the sisters
heard this child screaming during the
night, and when she questioned her
the girl told her she had a fearful
dream, in which she saw Christ on the
cross and a soldier driving a lance into
his side. The nun comforted the child,
who fell asleep.
In the morning the child complained
that her wrist and arm were sore.
On examination It was found that her
forearm was marked with a cross in
red. Cnderneath the cross were the
letters “I. H. S." A few days later
there appeared below the letters a
crown of thorns. Two or three days
later there appeared above the cross,
and surrounded by a scroll, the letters
"1. N. R. I.” A few days subsequently
there appeared beneath the crown of
thorns a chalice surmounted by a 1 ist
sending forth tadiations in red, and
after the same period there appeared
a flower-shaped drawing, near which
was written the word "Ldly.”
The marks extend from the wrist
! to the upper arm, and have been

A remarkabic feature of the occur
rence is that the stigmata bled copi
ously. A careful inquiry is being insti
tuted by the religions authorities, who.
while admitting the strikingly wonder
ful nature of the phenomenon, refrain
at present from any expression of opin
ion as to its origin.
The evidence in proof of the occur
rence is said to be of the clearest and
most indisputable kind. Pr. Madden
and other gentlemen who have seen
the marks are quite positive that they
j are not self-inflicted.

* Some Ways cf Serving Apples.
The properties of fruits of ail kinds
are so essential to our diet that they
should be more often included in the
menu. Apples are new a fruit that
may be obtained all the year round.
The malic acid which is contained in
the pome fruit is especially valuable
to counteract the uric acid in the ;
blood, which is the cause of rheuma
When served whole, apples should
be carefully washed and rubbed to a

so treated look better and so sell bet
An apple should never be eaten
without washing it. as germs of all
kinds may thus be carried into the
Wash, quarter and core good eating
apples, removing all imperfections.
Serve a few quarters on each plate,
with or without sugar. Fruit with lit
tle flavor may be sprinkled with a
grating of nutmeg or a sprinkling of
lemon juice. Many who will not take
time or trouble to prepare an apple
in the morning will enjoy a few pieces
all ready prepared. Wash and cere
apples without peeling them, put into
an earthen baking dish with a little
water, sugar and bits of butter, bake
slow ly until tender. Leaving the skin
on the apple makes a baked apple of
much better flavor. As a dessert, ap

Apples a la Ninon.—Sprinkle baked
apples with freshly-grated coeoanut
