Accuracy in. Standards of Measurement
Few realize the great practical im
portance of extreme accuracy in stan
dards of weight and extension, and it
is not generally known what degree of
accuracy h:is been attained in the meas
urement of the standards of lengths
now in ue in different countries. The
carpenter's foot-rule and the tailor's
3-ard are - familiar articles, but, if
asked, probably neither the carpenter
nor the tailor could tell whether thero
is any means by which the true length
of a foot or a yard can be determined.
It is clear, however, that there must be
a standard with which the common
measures should bo made to agree, in
oriler to have the same absolute value.
But we may reflect that the constant
use of any meusure will change its
length, and that it will eventually be
come worn out. We can , then, readily
understand the groat value of an ac
cepted standai-d. from "which copies
can bo made, thus preventing any grad
ual alteration in our measures. Such
standards of reference are properly
held in the eus'ody of national Gov
ernments, scientilic societies and insti
tutions. It is by no means a simple process to
compare one measure with another,
and to determino the variation between
the two. On the contrary, the utmost
skill and long experience are required
for such work, as well as the most elab
orate and costly apparatus. Allowance
must bo made for errors that are so
small as to be almost inappreciable, but
which cannot be eliminated, until they
have been subjected to future investi
gations of a very delicate nature. Ev
ery careful observer will obtain results
which are almost marvelously accordant
inter se; but the results obtained by
two observers, with different instru
ments, will probably not agree. The
"personal equation" has not yet been
eliminated from work of this kind.
In the comparison of weights and
measures, science demands the utmost
accuracy, and it would not bo possible,
even if it wero desirable, in an article
like this, to more than allude to a few
of the steps which have resulted in tho
final adoption of national and interna
tional standards. Popular Science
The Flying Dutchman.
A name given by sailors to a phan
tom ship, supposed to cruise in storms
off the Cape of Good Hope. Accord
ing to tradition, a Dirtch captain, bound
home from tho Indies, with long, con
tinued head winds and heavy weather
off this cape, and refusing to put back
as he was advised to do, swearing a
terrible oath that he would beat around
the cape if it took until the day of
judgment to accomplish the feat. He
was taken at his word, and doomed to
beat against winds all his days. His
sails are believed to have become
threadbare, and tho ship's sides white
with age. and himself and crew re
duced almost to shadows. He cannot
heave to or lower a boat, but sometimes
hails vessels through his trumpet, and
requests tliem to take letters home for
him. The superstition has its origin
in the looming or apparent suspension
in the air of some ship out of sight a
phenomenon sometimes wiln ssod at

interred, who had, many years b.-for,
entertained a great white man wit'i a
red board, who entered the S.tvanriah
river in a largo vessel, and in hi.s bargo
came up to the Yamacraw bluff. Feat -erstonhaugh,
in his "Travels," speaks
of the custom among the Osaes, re
ferring to a mound built over tho body
of a chief, called Jean DeFoe by the
French, who unexpectedly died while
his warriors were ab3ent on a hunting
expedition. Upn their return they
heaped a mound over his remains, en
larging it at intervals for a long period,
until it reached its present height.
Bradford says that miny of the tumuli
formed of earth, and occasionally of
stones, are of Indian origin. They are
generally sepulchral mounds either
the general cemetery of a village or
tribe, funeral monuments over the
graves of illustrious chiefs, or upon a
battle-field, commemorating the event
and entombing the fallen, or the result
of a custom, prevalent among some of
the tribes, of collecting at stated inter
vals tho bones of tho dead, and inter
ring them in a common repository. A
mound of tho latter description was
formerly situated on tho low grounds
of the R;vanna river, in Virginia, op
posite tho site of an old Indian village
(Jeller u's "Notes on Virginia," pp.
100, 10.). It was forty feet in diame
ter and twelve feet in height, of a
spheroidal form, and surrounded by a
trench, whence tho earth employed in
its .construction had been excavated.
The circumstances attending the cus

of skeletons, their confused position,
their situation indistinct strata, exhib

come a matter of importance. A goat
skin bag is sprinkled with water and
placed with its mouth, which is
stretched open for a hoop, looking to
wards tho river, near the place whero
the man is supposed to have been drow
ned. Two cords are stretched from
the spot across the river as a bridge on
which the soul can come over. Ves
sels containing food and drink are set
around the skin, and the friends of the
deceased come and eat quietly, while a
song is sung with instrumental accom
paniments. The soul, it is believed, is
attracted by the ceremonies, . comes
over on the bridge that i3 laid for it,
and goes into the trap. As soon as ' it
has entered that is, when the bag is
inflated by the breeze the opening is
quickly closed, and the bag is taken up
to the burial place, where a grave has
already been prepared. The bag is
held with the opening to the grave, the
strings are untied, and the soul that
is, the wind in the bag is squeezed in
to the grave, and the burial is after

It is a curious fact that Russia, one
of the poorest of civilized countries,
makes a greater parade of wealth in
one respect than any other State. . The
domes of all the great churches in St.
Petersburg, Moscow, and other large
towns are plated with gob! nearly one
quarter of an inch thick. The new
church of the Saviour dedicated and
opened in Moscow last August, repre
sents a value of fully $15,000,000. Tho
Isaac Cathedral, in St. Petersburg, may
be safely credited with at least twice
that amount. S strong, however, is
the old Slay belief in tho inviolablj
sanctuary of "holy places" that, dur
ing countless seasons of wide-spread
and bitter distress, n att -nipt has ever
beewa made to plunder the. gold thus
temptingly exposed. .In leed, one of

' Eava to Do to Keep Up. ; - -
One of the mo-t brilliant feats of
French reporting is the following: It
happened at the time when the great
Troppmann murder rase was ag'tnling
Paris and Fr; c and everybody was
eager for d-a'N. A rep rter who had
the matter in hand left Parte for Cer
nay, where the father of Troppmann
rcsi led. He arrived, called upon the
just'ee of. t.'ie p-ace and the comrais
sair.e de police, invited them to follow
him to the Mairie. took his seat in the
ju Ige's chair, and there, w ith unpar
alleled su lac'ity, ordered the garde
champetro to go and bring before him
the assassin's fattier. The officers did
not say a word; the reporter had con
q m red them by his air and deme inor.
When the father of Troppmann was
brought before hini. lie interrogat
ed him as though officially commis
sioned to do so. The result of the cross-que-tioning
was that the son had writ
ten to the father on the eve and on the
day of the crime. "Monsieur le Com

go to the witness' house and seize these
The functionary obeyed; the letters
were brought, tho reporter read them, ;
found them full of evidence of Tropp
mann's gui't, copied them carefully
and with a solemn air. Then, with re
spect, he handed over the originals to
the justice of the peace, asked him to
seal them carefully and keep them for
the future use of the court. The re
porter put the copies into his pocket,
saluted the gentlemen and left. It wa3
1 o'clock in the afternoon, and tho
train that was to bear his letter to Paris
would not leavj before evening. If ho
sent his precious report by that train it
would be too late for the morning edi

other Paris reporters, who had just ar
rived, and who would soon learn tho
news at Cernay and send it on to Paris
at the same time he did his report.

did as he bade them, while our friend
jumped into a wagon, and had himself
driven to the station; after hard bog
ging, and giving money, he was al
lowed to leave on a luggage train then
about to start, caught a passenger train
for Paris at a junction further on, and

It carried the beholder back to thir
ty years ago, when the thrashing-machine
wa3 heard only at rare intervals,
and the lion st farm ;r spre id his gol--den
stalks on the clean barn floor and
flailed away with such tempered blows
that not a kernel was broken. The
man who had it sat d wn on one of the
benches in the West Circus Park. The
rare sight of such an article halted ev
ery pedestrian, and the man had to
keep explaining over and over:
"Well. I'll have sonrj beans to shell
this fall, and I kinder thought 'twould

crowd an exhibition on the grass, and
his success was great. At the second
blow the flail end hesitated in mid-air,
wobbled about and linally came down
with a whack on the patriots' head,
making him see more stars than a win

dropped tho weapon with the remark
