Tho best way to learn about the develop
ment of insects is to observe the process for
caesclf, says a writer in 1-ho Gmriru Gentle

one of our common hultcrihcs. and it would .

It is best to begin with th: egg stage, and, J
theicfore. the first Huns to lie done is to
find the eggs of battcrllics. They can '
usually easily b: found, by careful loolting, '
attached to the under '.,: Z the leaves of
plants upon v.it.ch larval Luttorfiics feed.
These larval butterflies areco:anonly called
'worms;" every one bus noticed such so- !
called worms upon: ho leaves of cabbage,
tomato and mil!;-weed plants. If then, for ,
example, the leave.-. f cabb.tye plants be
carefully examined in early summer there
will oefo.:ud upon them clusters of eggs
destined ti Im'.eli and develop into the com-
:non cabbare butterfly. The ergs aro oval
iu shape, of a yellow color, and have ridges
running 1 aih.vise. their appearance, as a ,
whole, being somewhat iii;e cars of yellow
A leaf witTicgs attached should be pulled
eff and plucc.l in a box with a glass cover, (
such a covor boti adini.iiug light and en
abling th'i observer to watch the process of (
development. A wooden box, like a school j
chalk-box, the sliding cover of which has t
been replace 1 by a pieeoof giassof like size,
is a convenient form of box to use, but any
tin or wooden box with a piece of window
lass for cover will aiK'.wr.
Theieavesof the -i.hage-p!ant being thick '
and hard;,', they will pruonhly not wi her, if
kept in a shady place, until the eggs have I
hatched. Each egg produces a small green
and white wcrui. The worm should at ,
nucc he si:pyaed with fresh cabbage leaves;
it will be fo. ad to have 1.0 lack of appetite.
It grows with surprising rapidity, attaining
within a week or ten days its full sire, in
leugtii an inch or inch and a half. It at- j
laches itself along the edge of a leaf, and, ,
with its sharp-biting mouth-parts, devours )
it bit by bit until it is entirely eaten, when
it grecdiiy attacks another. Its body seems '
swollen by its constant purging. The truth J
is that it i to pass into a resting condition, .
when it taUes no food, and it must now im
prove its time so as to gather strength to
last it in its period of abstinence. 1
At the end of ten or t weive days the worm
is ready to pass into tins resting stage ,
what is called the papa stage. At this, time
it will be seen to abandon its leaf and crawl
about the box. somewhat eagerly, as if i
searching for something. This uneasy ac-
tivity may continue for some time, but final
ly, as if having found a suitable place, it
proceeds to spin a net or web. m which it
siay suspend itself during the appioachiug
period of inactivity. This net is not a co- '
coon, such as the larva of some insects spin,
but a slight web serving merely to suspend i
the pupa. Tho extreme apjiearaiice now ;
chauges. The bright green color becomes
dull, and several rings into which the skin of
the worm is thrown become less distinct,
and linaliy it assumes the characteristic
pupa form an oblong, angular body, more '
pointed at one cud than the other. What
has taken place is the molting of the skin,
that is, the skin is separated from the body
ttnd becomos simply a firm, hard case in '
wlueh the living insect is contained.
In this puna stage now often called a
chrysalis it remains for ten or twelve days.
Of course all the while important changes
arc going on within; the energy stored up
during its period of hungry activity now
serves to carry on those vital processes that
made the dull and seemingly lifeless pupa
succeeded by the sprightly, handsome but
terlly. These changes affect the entire
structure of the animal, internal scarcely
less than external; the buttcrflv has a dif-
fcrcnt nervous, digestive, circulatory, etc., .
system than tne larvi ,
At last the butterfly emerges from the pupa,
the wall of the latter breaking away at one
end.probably by the growth and movements
of the insects within. It is one of our plain
yellow buttcrtlies: jet one can imagine that
it has quite a triumphant bearing as it
emerges from its confinement. It soon ex
tends its wings, and after a few flutters,
if allowed to escape, soars away.
Such is an outline of the development of
insects, in which the metamorphosis is com
pleted thiit is. injects which, besides tho
egg stage.pass through three states, named
successively, the larva, pujia and imago, or
perfect insect. Hut in many insects tho
transformation is incomplete that is to
say, the metamorphosis is not so marked
the several states are not so distinct. 1
Take, for instance, the grasshopper. In '
this insect uotn tne larva anil pupa rcsem- j

the whigs arc present, in rudimentary form. I
m tne pupa, aim mere arc groups 01 in
sects in which there is no metamorphosis at
all. These are of tho lower orders, and in
clude the insects unfavorably known as
lice. In these orders the insect, when it
emerges from the egg, is quite like the full
grown specimen, except, iu size.
After-all. the development of the butterfly
and the other insects of complete meta
morphosis is no more wonderful than that of
other animals. The transformations through I
which the insects pass arc in no essential .
respects different from those through which
other animals pass in their development.
The chief difference is that in the insects
these transformations take place after the
egg-stage, while iu many other animals as
the birds and most reptiles they take place
within the egg. In tho insects the egg is
very small, and there is not enough food
matter contained in it for the growing em
bryo. It therefore breaks through the egg,
and is able to seek food for itself. But in
the birds the egg is large, and has a supply
or food sufficient for the nourishment of tho
embryo until it has attained full structural
development. Hence it goes through its
transformations within thejegg. In tho in
sect the development is for a time arrested,
so that the larva can gather a supply of
food, both for its immediate wants and for
gaining a store of energy Tor the next stage
in its life-history. In the birds and most
other animals the development proceeds
without interruption until the young is

Under the above caption the New York Graphic, some three years ago, published a critical
review of the growth of The Chicago Daily News, which sets forth so clearly some of the
fundamental principles underlying the development of one of the phenomenal successes of later
years that it will well repay a reading. To bring some of the Graphic's figures down to the present
date, supplemental statements are parenthetically added by the present writer.
" The newspaper entitled to the distinction of
having the largest daily circulation in America is
The Chicago Daily News. (Since this state
ment was made it is possible that the growth of
the New York World entitles it to first place.)
The Graphic to-day devotes a page to sketches of
scenes in and about its establishment The his
tory of this paper is probably without a parallel
in the annals of American journalism. It was
founded December 20th, 1875, and was the fust
low-priced daily successfully established in ';he
West. At the end of its first year it had achieved
a circulation of about 10,000. From that time on
its growth has been remarkable. It now prints
seven editions daily, comprising both morning
and evening issues. Its statement of circulation
for the year 1884 shows a daily average of 125,178
copies, unquestionably the largest daily circulation
on the American continent. (The sworn state
ment for 1887 shows a daily average of 165,376.)
" In politics The Daily News is always inde
pendent, never neutral. While its editoral ex
pression is sometimes vigorous to the degree of
severity, there is always in its utterances of opinion
s$;Tnanifest a purpose to be impartial and fair to
alPopposing interests, that it rarely loses the con
fidence of the reader, however much it may fail to
bring him to an acceptance of its own view con-c'-ming
the matter in hand.
"As a newspaper proper, The Daily News
has earned a reputation for enterprising news
gathering second to none in the United States.
It is the only cheap paper in th West that is a
member of the Associated iVe. It uives its
readers all trie news wortn giving and gives it tor rements ot tiv host nmepcan journalism o: '

THE SWAMP ANGELS.
Desprradoes Yl ln Ruled Southern Arkan
sas fur Many Years.
Only a few years bade, before the rail
roads penetrated tho swamps of Southern
Arkansas to disturb them, says a letter to
tho St. Louis Gbihc-Dcnuicrat, desperadoes
from all points sought refuge in tho depths
of these, the most gloomy and inaccessible
swamps of this country, and it was only a
few years ago that the most notorious of
this band of exile criminals first came here,
and whose deeds of desperate daring were
chronicled the world over in the papers of
tho land. This was Tom Mitchell, who
started life as a farmer boy, and who. by

technicality, escaped the punishment of tho
At that time, as it is now, tho law of the
State was to confiscate all small arms found
on prisoners. This was done in Mitchell's
case, a pistol which he prized highly being
taken from him by the sheriff. This seemed
to arouse all tho latent fierceness in tho
young man, and he determined to recover
his revolver at the cost of his life if neces

not slow to accept, and the consequence
was that at last he was waylaid by three of
his enemies about dusk at a lonely part of a
country road. Mitchell, all unconscious of
bis danger, rode into tho ambuscade laid
for him. A shot whistled past him. With
abound he reached a large cypress tree.

last shot killed his man.
Another of the men exposed himself, and
two shots laid him low. Then serin? tho
other man, a stranger to him, ho called oat:
" Say, pardner, if you will quit I will."
"I'll be hanged if I do," was tho reply.
With that he fired at Mitchell, who,
stepping from his place of concealaient,
raised his rifle and shot his antagonist
through the heart. Now it was the boy of
seventeen became a desperate man. Know
ing that he could no longer live at home, ho
determined to retreat into the swamps.
F0S8O after posse was dispatched after him,
but they found it impossible to capture him.
Mitchell was shortly joined by two men
who had been equally unsuccessful in re
straining their ungovernable tempers.
These were Campbell and Cummins. They
banded themselves together, and, retreat
ing into tho depths of the swamps surround
ing the St. Francis river, swore that no man
should ever live between the St Francis
and the Mississippi rivers, and for a num
ber of years they kept their oath, styling
themselves the " swamp angels."
About one hundred yards from tho depot
at this place is their old fording-place, and
upon a large white gum tree a cross was
cut by an axe to designate the crossing.
Tho most hardy woodmen still refuse to pen
etrate into the depths of theso forests of
cypress, and tho dark swampy ground is
.seldom trod by human feet It is still the
home of the bear and tho panther, tho wild
turkey and deer.
Some years have passed since the " swamp
angels" were monurchs of tho gloomy
waste. Mitchell was at last captured, and
died in prison. Campbell, who was consid
ered the most gentlemanly of tho trio, is
farming not many miles from the marked
tree, and Cummins is a laborer. Both of
tho survivors arc now leading a peaceable
life, but rarely come to tho settlements, and
few who meet them would think they were
once the famous " bwamp angels " who were
the terror of the settlers of Southern Arkansas.

much indebted for its remarkable growth in circu
lation to the persistent adherence on the part
of the other Chicago dailies to the "blankct
shoet " style of journalism. Of all the people in
America the average Chicagoan is most in a hurry
and least inclined to wade through columns of
verbiage and stuff. The Daily News is the only
Chicago daily that has the facilities for giving all
the news, and at the same time the good sense to
present it in concise form. The result of such a
condition of affairs is that The Daily News prints
more papers than all the other Chicago dailies
"In considering all the causes which have
entered into and produced so phenomenal a jour

SNAKES IN PIECES.
A Serpent That Joined Itself Together
After Uelug Cut in Two.
Persons who never saw a joint snako
arc naturally incredulous as to the fact of
their existence. Tho observation of tho
writer and the killing of four or five of the
" critters" in bis life has removed all
doubts, so far as he is concerned, says tho
Corinth (Miss.) Herald. The only open
question remaining is: Do the disjointed
snakes unite the pieces and live again!
This is by many persons asserted, and yet
by as many disputed. The uniting is just
as reasonable as me disjointing. It is tho
tail, which const.tutes about two-thirds of
the animal, and not the body proper that
disjoints. An old darkey whom we inter
" I knows they gets together again, for I
killed tho tail of one, left in little short
pieces; the head got away, and when I got
back to the place the head had gathered all
the pieces together and gone off." John
Patterson, a very intelligent colored man,
testified more directly to tho point. Ho
said: "I know they get together again. I
have watched them; the head and body
just back up to the pieces and hitches them
on like coupling cars." Being closely cross
question, he said: "The snake searched
about in the grass till it found the pieces,
then turned its tail end to the piece and
bent its head back and hitched the piece on;
