Dk. Miles, in his work on domestic
animals, says, as showing the influence
of feed on the fecundity of domestic ani

west of Scotland two lambs will be
borne by about one ewe in twenty;
whereas, in England, on the rich pas
tures, something like one ewe in three
will boar two lambs.
A NUMitEK of old dwarfs and young
children arrived at New York the other
day, from Italy. They were brought
here for the purpose of making beggars
of them. One of the men was over 70
j-ears of age. The Society for the Pre
vention of "Cruelty to Children will re
turn the children, and the Italian Con
sul will take charge of the dwarfs, and
send them back to "their own country.
Two men started from Minneapolis
on the same train carrying conflicting
deeds to a piece of land in Sioux Falls,
and each resolved to gel his document,
recorded first. As they approached that
city one of them climbed inon the en

to take eare of itself, and rushed on, se
curing a record of his title half an hour
in advance of his rival, who had to wait
for another locomotive.

A kemakkahle case of surgery has
been reported to the French Academy of
Medicine. A carpenter nearly cutoff
the big toe of his right foot with an ax.
The toe was held to the foot by a small
thread of skin only. Dr. Ganey de
tached the toe completely, and having
washed it and the wound on the foot,
brought the surface together again and
held them in place by strips of lint,
soaked with collodion. When the col
lodion had set another strip was wound
round. An apparatus was used also to
keep all parts of the foot immovable.
Twenty-four days after the accident the
cicatrization was perfect.
There is in the Royal Library at
Stockholm an immense manuscript,
which, when open, covers about a square
3'ardof surface, and requires two or
three men to lift it. It consists of 309
leaves of thick parchment, probably of
asses' skin, ana contains the Old Testa
tnent, the Antiquties and Jewish Wars,
of Josephus, the Origines of Isidore, a
medical work of Johannicius Johannes
Alexandrinus, the New Testament, a
curious picture of the devil, and other
miscellaneous matter. It belonged to
n small Benedictine monastery at Pod
lazic, in Bohemia, and tradition asserts
that it yras written in one night, with
the devil's help, by an imprisoned
"monk. The dale of its transcription
may be ascribed to the period between
1224 and 1239. Late in the sixteenth
century it was taken to Prague, whence
it was carried off by the Swedes in the
last year of the thirty years' war (1649).
Since then it has been in its present

i not disdmifar to the gliding of
Spert en a Nevada Lf Flame.
At the Funmit of that cascade in
lioridagc the flume begins. Its track is
a trough of heavy planks, converging in
an angle like that which is boundcif by
the two sides of a prism. Down this
canal, whose sides are worn very
smooth by the gentle but persistent fric
tion of water, and by the many rubs and
knocks of its freightage, the wood, the
snake. As the flume winds, the current
weaves this side and that, as if seeking
escape, like the caged jxiwer that it is.
Unremitting as the endless chain in
machinery, untiring as the natural
brooks by which it is fed, its capacity
for burden is unlimited, and the htalis
tics show that this little thread of water
transports daily from the mountain top
to the valley half a million feet of min
ing timber," or 700 cords of "wood. At
pbces along its route there are stations
of relay, or reinforcement rather, where
feeders pour in and compensate lor the
waste incurred 1)3 leakage or overflow.
It follows no regular grade, but accom
modates itself to the side of the moun
tain, however steep, and is swift ac
cordingly. What is the rate of speed I
do not know; but this I have noticed,
that it is so rapid that a hore can not
drink from it, for if he turns his head up
the hill the current floods his nostrils,
and facing down stream the water falls
awn- from his mouth, as it did from the
lips of the doomed lantalus.
Venturesome people have sailed down
it in boats, but such voyagers have been
too much occupied with the safe navi
gation of their cockle crafts to keep any
accurate log of their journey. There is
a great deal of sport and not a little
danger about thrs method of going to
sea, and so it is a favorite pastime with
thu men of Lake Tahoe on a Sunday af
ternoon. Indeed, its reputation "as a
manly amusement has become more
than local, and travelers from abroad
feel that their tour has been for naught
if they have not consummated their ad
ventures by a ride down the flume.
Looking across the valleys and seeing
the silver filament of water hang
ing down the mountains they
feel their bosoms thrill with the de
sire and ambition of Sam Patch, and
would rather forego their swim in Salt
Lake or a shot at a buffalo than to miss
this latest episode ot American travel.
Persons practiced in the art, those
who hold cool heads and the equipoise
of accomplished skaters, will step on
the floating timbers as they scud by,
ride till their heads swim, and then dis
embark as best the3' may. Or, more
timorous, the pleasure-seeker scats him
self upon the narrow and uncertain deck
of a railroad-tie, clings to the same with
tenacious bonds and feet, and launches
himself to his fate. As his speed in
creases the spray flies, and his boat
wavers and threatens to capsize; he
thrusts his arms into the air. and with
frantic gesticulations endeavors to
preserve his balance. A little further

Better than these expedients it is to

To save their cities from destructive
fires the Chinoe observe main nece.
sary precautions. In the street of
many of their cities well are sunk,
which are called Ini-pinijlsitng , or
"great peace-wells." They aie large
and contain abundant supplies of water,
anil over the mouth of each a stone flab
is placed which is only removed when
any of the neighboring houses are on fire.
It Is provided U3- law that there sha't be
placed in various parts of a Chinoe city
large tubs to be l.ept at all times full of
water. On the side of each of these
vessels is written in large Chinese letters
the woids "peace-tub" or cisterns. On
the tops of tne houses, also, it is not un
usual for l.e Chinese to place earthen
jars containing water, so that tbe- may
alwas have at hand sufficient "water
to enable them to suppress incipient
In each large city there are several
fire brigades maintained entirely by con
tributions on the part of the citizens.
The fire enirines, water-buckets and
lanterns which belong to them arc kept,
as a rule, in the different temples of the
city : and each brigade is distinguished
113- a peculiar name. To each guild a
lire brigade is attached, and the ex
penses of the brigade are defrayed b
the members of the guild. The "officers
and men of the brigade aie provided
with a distinctive uniform or dress, and
on their hats are recorded in large
Chinese characters the name or number
of their brigade, and the words Kow-fo,
Besides these provisions 1)3 the citi
zens themselves, for the purpose of
checking or nutting out fires, the mem
bers of the local government of each
city are called upon to render their as
sistance. By way of illustration 'at me
take Canton. Each magistrate of the
city has in his service several men w hose
duty it is on the occurrence of fire to
prevent robberies. Thus the Ivwong
liip; or commandant of the Chinese gar
rison in Canton, uas under him. besides
others, 80 men, of whom 20 are to assist
in preventing robberies when a fire takes
place, and 00 are to asJst in putting out
the fire. Of these men !0 aie stationed
sit the Five Genii gate of the fiiy and 40
in the western suburb. Under the im
mediate command of the Governor
there aie 200 men, whose duty in a great
measure consists in helping firemen
to subdue the conflagrations. Through
out the city of Canton there are 48
guard-houses, and from each of these,
111 the event of a fire, two men are told
off to hasten to the scene. At the close
or commencement of each succeeding
month throughout the year, the Provin
cial Judge and the Provincial Treasurer,
both of whom are ven- higu officials,
are supposed to inspect al! the Govern
ment servants whose duty it is to assist
in putting out fire.
Once more: with a view of making
all Chinese officials active in the dis
charge of these duties, k is enacted that,
in the csise of 80 houses being destroyed
by fire, all the officers in the city in
which the conflagration occurred shall
be degraded in rank one step; and tha
in case 10 houses are dcsti'03'cd the mat

Tire discoveiy that an animal on the
farm, however valuable, has a broken
leg is generally the signal for taking its
life, as if no other course were possible.
Mr. T. C. Naramore, Williston, Vt., de
clares that in most cases a cure can be
effected, and he describes his plan of
treatment in the American Cultivator:
" The difficulty of managing an animal
in the ordinary way is that it keeps
straining the leg, thus preventing the
broken parts from knitting together. If
the leg is swollen, cold water is one of
the best applications for removing the
swelling, and this should have immedi
ate attention. After the bone is care
fully set m case the fractured parts (al
so a space above and below them) with
heavy leather something like a boot-leg.
Tin or wood might answer the same
purpose. It should be large enough to
leave two inches space all around the
leg, which space should be filled in solid
with wet plaster of Paris. The latter
will harden very quickly and hold the
bone as securely in position as though
in a block of wood, still allowing a free
circulation of blood within the leg."
Mb. Haweis, a leading London Epis
copalian parson of the Broad Church
type, has lately preached a striking ser

Though the teaching may not be di
rect, no picture of human life can fail
to be instructive, and, the dramatist and

The Old-Fashioned Girl.
A writer in the Examiner and Chron
icle sa3s that the blessing of heaven ma3
fall upon an3' "old-fashioned girl." He
once knew such girls, and sketches a
portrait of one of them as follows :
Sho flourished SO or 40 years ago.
She was a little girl until she was 15.
She used to help her mother wash the
dishes, and keep the kitchen tiily, and
she had an ambition to make pies so
nicely that papa could not tell the dif
ference between them and mamma's.
She could fry griddle-cakes at 10 years
of age, and darn her own stockings be
fore she was 12, to say nothing of
knitting them herself, hhe had her
hours of play, and enjoyed herself to the
fullesUextent. She had no very costby
toys, to be sure, but her rag doll and
little bureau and chair that Undo Tom
made, were just as valuable to her as the
twenty-dollar wax doll and elegant doll
furniture the children have now-a-davs.
She never said, " I can't," " I don't
want to," to her mother, when asked to
leave her play, and nin up stairs or
down on an errand, because she had not
been brought up in that way. Obedi
ence was a cardinal virtue in the old
fashioned little girl. We do not sup
pose she bad her hair in curl-papers or
crimping-pins, or had it "banged"
over her forehead, and her flounces were
no trouble to her. She learned to sew
by making patchwork, and we dare say
couiu uo an - ovcr-anu-over" seam as
well as nine-tenths of the grown-up
women now-a-da3s. The old-fashioned
little jrirl did not grow into a vounsr
lady and talk about beaux before she
was in her teens, and she did not read
dime-novels, and was not fane3ing a
hero in every plow-boy she met. She
learned the solid accomplish
ments as she errew uo. She
was taught the art of cooking and
housekeeping. "When she got a hus
band, she knew how to cook him a din
ner. She was not learned in French
verbs or Latin declensions, andliernear
neighbors were spared the agony of
hearing her pound ont The Maiden's
Pnyer " and " Silver Threads Among
the Gold " twenty times a day on the
Siano. But we have no doubt she made
er family quite as comfortable as .the
modem youne lady does hers. It may
be a vulgar assertion, but we honestly I

an accomplished scholar. When both
sets of qualities are found together, as
the3 sometimes are, then is the house-'

The old-fashioned little girl was mod

talked slang or used by-words. She did
not laugh at plcLpeopleor make- fun, of
cripples, as we saw some jaodenulittle
girls doing the other day;t-.She had 're-?

guishing the flames. They are also very
daring. During the late war between
Great Juritain and China, when Canton
was set on fire b3 bombshells from Sir
M. Scymo.u-'s guns, I observed from the
top of the British factory the various fire
brigades steadih persevering in heir
attempts to subdue the flames in the
face of a constant fire of shot and shell.
Persons who, through carelessness or
otherwise, are the cause of file, are,
when caught, severeb punished. I re
member a large fire occurring in the
month of May, 18G, at Ilonnm. a
suburb of the cit3 of Canton. The lire
originated in consequence of the care
lessness of three women, and upon be
ing apprehended the3 Averc exposed for
several days in cangucs (large wooden
collars ma'de of square boards) at the
gates of a temple in honor of the Queen
of Heaven. In the month of August,
1871, I saw a respectable druggist
named Wong Kwok-hing exposed in a
cangtie at the end of the Tung-hing Kai,
a street in the southwestern suburb of
Canton. To the carelessness of this
druggist a fire was attributed which in
the preceding month of March had de-stnn-ed
upwards of fort3 houses. The
unfortunate man was daily exposed in
this degrading manner for a whole
month." CAfna and the Chinese," btj

Sightlag a Caanen.
In olden time a Quartermaster's Ser
geant might squint his left eve along a
held-piece and have it fired with the hope
of hitting something somewhere. Now,
however, the sighting of a cannon is
more difficult to do than the solution of
a problem in conic sections to a school
boy. Six instruments must be used in
France before the word " fire" is given.
The anemometer measures the force and
velocity of the wind. The pressure of
the atmosphere is taken b means of a
barometer. The sights arc graduated
with the pressure of a certain figure, and
of course a change must bo made if the
pressure is greater or less. Next a
hydrometer gives the amount of moist
ure in the atmosphere. The degree of
dampness materially affects the resist
ance offered to the flight of a cannon
ball, although to meet one of them vou
would not expect it would mind damp
ness or any thing else much. A plan
chette is used where the object fired at
is out of sight. A telemeter, or range
finder, is employed to ascertain tie dis
tance of objects fired at, and finally a
thermometer gives the temperature," as
the sight marks that would be all right
in warm weather are too cold for finiifr
in cold weather. After all this is done,
we presume it does not reouire more
than half a dozen men. to tell the gun
ner to "fire. It must make them mad af
ter all their calculations are made to
find that the ball does not go within a
mile of the object Bred at, or what is
more probable to find that the enemy
has moved off one. .hundred miles or so
while the figuring is going on. The
French army will liave to provide each
cannon with a college of technology to
do the sighting. Bingkamton Democrat.

the rocks thaw oroject overhead, and no

holes in the rocks show where the way
was trodden of o'd - human feet. If
the reader will imagine the Palisades
three times higher than they are, with
midwa3 shelves between the top and

from which the owners found their way
13' paths scaraelv a foot wide, he will
have some idea of these ancient abodes,
whose counterparts in miniature can
now be seen at the museum.
The cliffs in some part arc limestone,
but most frcqtienth sandstone, with al
ternating strata of shales and elav. The
softer layers are hollowed ont, leaving
caves, whose solid stone lediro serve as
the floors and loofs of the cliff dwellings.
A few houses nave two stories, and one
shows four stories, but generally they
aru not higher than a man's head. Di
vision walls are built from the rear of
the opening and running outward to the
front of the cave, which is so neat be
wailed 13' masour3 of the prevailing
stone that the artificial work is scarcely
noticeable 113- a casual observer. Upon
the summits of the loftier battlements
are placed at irregular intervals round
stone towers. The urvc of the aborig
inal nnisoniy is perfect. As to the han
ks of these dwellers we know almost
nothing. Near the ruin called Hoven
weep Ca-itle (the cattle of the deserted
valle3') no bones or signs of graves have
beeniound : only heaps of ashes are
left, mingled with charred w od, which
tell the stoiyof cremation, and probably
of lire worship. It is assi-med that the
present I'ueblo Indians are the descend
ant j of tiiese people, from tlie fact that
their huts to-daA- resemble the ancient
cave houses. The absence of imple
ments of warfare, either complete! or
unfinished, gives rise to the opinion that
they were a peaceful nice. Near some
of the cities thousands of Hint ariow

According to Mr. Jackson the most
remarkable remains are those found in
New Mexico, and some of the buildings
equal any in the United States, if we ex
cept the capitol. One of these (shown
in the cast 113 Ihmlen), the "I'ueblo
del Arroya," has" wings 1:50 feet in
length, ami the western wall of the
court is 268 feet. Facing the center of
the court aie- three stories in height.
Anoiher, the " I'ueblo Chcttro Kettle,"
is 410 feet long and 'n0 feet wide, and
presents the remains of four stories; the
logs forming the second floor extend
through the walls a distance of G feet,
and piobablv at one time supported a
balcoin- on the shad side of the house.
Mr. Jackson estimates that in the wall
running around three sides of the build
ing, 925 in length and 40 feet in height,
there were more than 2,000,000 pieces
o'sto c for the outer surface of the out
er wnl alone. This surface multiplied
b3 the stones of the opposite surface,
and also by the stones of the interior
and transverse lines of masonry, would
give a total of S0,000,000 pieces m .llo,
(XK) cubic feet or wall. These millions
of pieces had to be quarried and put in
to position ; the timbers were brought
from a great distance, and considering
the vastness of the work and the amount
of labor and time that must have been
expended these buildings may well be
compared with tlie most" famous works
of what is so wrongly called the old
Among the caves of the Rio de Chelley
were found some at the most beautifully
tinted arrow-heads ever discovered ; al
so, numbers of large earthen jarso'oval
design. In a large thrce-ston house
were found many implements of do
mestic use representing the stone age.
Among them were large grindstones and
hammers. The walls, sa3s Mr. Iuger
soll, were plastered with cement of
stucco like finish. That it was spread
on the walls b3' human hands is evident
from the marks of the pores 01 the skin
to be found on the surface. Occasionally
the whole Imprint of the hand has been
left; one woman's slender fingers arc
thus preserved for ihe people, of the
nineteenth century. As to the date of
these erections but littte can be de
termined at present. The Moqui towns
are now in prccisel the same state of
prescraviio 1 as the3 were when de
scribed bv- the invading Spaniards, near
by 400 3-eai . ago. Assuming the Moquis
to be lineal descendants of the cliff-dwell
ers, how vast a time the old can3Tn castles
must have been deserted even when the
Moquis have no knowledge of the grand
homes of their ancestors! Regarding
the age of the Pueblos, tliev" were said
by Coronado at the time of the conquest
to look very old. Castenado records
that the inhabitants told him that tlie
Pueblos were older than the memory of
seven hundred years. That these ruins
were known to the Spanish invaders we
have proof in the journal of Don Anto
nio de Olermin, written in 16S1, where
mention is made that eighty leagues dis
tant from their camp tnerc were Casas
Grandas. Gallatin speaks of them and
describes them to the Aztecs. Perhaps
time and more extended research may
reopen the historv of these people who
have been swept away from their grand
cities, leaving nothing bnt the stony
walls of their houses to tell the tale of
their pre-Columbian greatness; but this
we know, that these and other tokens
tell that in reality America is the old
world, and that thousands of years ago
races flourished here in a hig'h state of
pet mil of mi inch of canvas to In; taken

who began the Hghlon board the Koyal
Sovereign, commanding the Ice division,
and Uie feelings of the two brave men
at this important moment found utter
anee almost at the same in-tant.
' What would Nelson g:vo to be here!"
exclaimed Collingwood to Captain
Kothcram, and at the same in-taut,
without a spark of jeilouv at the en
viable position of his friend, Nelson ob
served, " See how nobly Collitigwood
carries hU hip into action."
But at 20 minutes past noon the Vic
tory was in the thick of the fight.
Scarcely a minute after the ship gt
within ninge, seven or eight ships
opened a terrible and destructive fire
upon her. The Admiral's secretary,
Mr. Scott, was shot dead, and soon the
mien topmast of the Victory was car
ried away, and also her wheel, necessi
tating the. process of steeling l3' the re
lieving tackles below. Yet no ball of
fire destroyed the dauntless and dogged
courage of Nelson and his sea dog.
When a splinter iroai the fore brace
bits passed between NeNoii and Hardy,
and tore away ihe buckle from the shoe
of the latter, "the Admiral only smiled
