Carmine Ilodlly Jnlcaa,
The cochineal insect la a fat, dark,
spherical little creature, looking like n
black currant, and with neither hcntl,
legs nor tall to tho casual observer. In
fact, ho Is so Inanlmato that anyone
may squash him between finger ami
thumb without any qualms of con
science. Ho Is nothing but a black cur
rant, sure enough, though tho bright
cnrmlno or lake cxuslon from his body,
which serves him for blood nnd us for
dyo, Is a better color than the Juice of
tho currant. It was tho cultivation of
theso pleasant little individuals which,
more than a score of years ngo, put no
less than 40 per cent per annum upon
Investments Into tho pockets of tho cul
tivators. Such prosperity was too good
to last. Tho insect was not Introduced
Into Tencrlffo until 1825, and for a time
It could not bo encouraged to propa
gate successfully. A priest had tho
honor of being tho discoverer of the
right method of nurture, and to him
It Is duo thnt from 1845 to 18C5 an an
nual crop of from two to six million
pounds of cochineal was produced. A
cochineal plnntntlon has a singular
nspect. The Inrvao, being very deli
cate and rnthcr thick-witted, have to
bo tied upon tho cactus plant, which Iri
to be their nursery and their nourish
ment at the same tlmo. Thus ono sees
hundreds of tho shoots of the prickly
pear the enctus In question all ban
daged with white linen. In this way
the Insects keep warm nnd dry during
tho winter and induced to mlhero to
tho plant itself. When they nro full
grown they nro ruthlessly swept from
their prickly quarters, shaken or baked
to death or dried In the sun. Tho
shriveled corpses nro then packed In
bags and sold ns rlpo merchandise at
about $25 a hundredweight.
PRINCIPLES OF DYEING.
Interesting Olisrrtutlon Itrreiitly Hot
Forth by Dr. Knrtht.
Tho textile organs give placo to Dr.
Knccht's observations on tho philoso
phy and principles of dyeing, as re
cently set forth, emphasis being mndo
on tho well-known fact that various
color solutions rise with a different
speed and to a different height through
the medium of inserted strips of Alter
paper, tho difference being, In fact, so
marked that n system of analysis has
been built upon it. So, it Is reasoned,
n drop of acqucous solution spreads on
a sheet of filter paper, forming a blotch
surrounded by a colorless hulo; tho lat
ter, surrounding n dot of magenta, be
ing found to contain about halt of tho
total hydrochloric acid present In tho
dyestuff, the fact of n chemical disso
ciation thus being evident. This disso
ciation, according to Dr. Knccht, is be
forehand attributed to the chemical ac
tion of the cellulose, and in Juxtaposi
tion is placed the well-known fact that
a solution of tannic acid and magenta
may bo mixed without precipitation,
wbilo tannin-mordanted cotton in tho
same bath will bo at once charged with
a color lake; further, as tho phenome
non with tho colorless halo does not
tako placo with alcoholic nor concen
trated aqueous color solutions, tho
water Is supposed to actually dlssocl
ato dyo hazo nnd mineral acid, but tho
presence of cellulose Is required to up
set tho equilibrium that existed up to
GAS FOR POWER.
One of tho Latest Triumphs of Mechnn
Another device for ndaptlng tho gas
cnglno to the running of vehicles on
ordlnnry roads Is spoken of with com
mendation as a mechanical triumph by
tho scientific press. It is a tricycle
mechnnlsm, propelled by a two-horso
power engine, nnd, having been tested
on various city streets under varying
conditions of grndo and roadway, is
said to have proved in every Instance
satisfactory, being of easy control as
regards starting, tho regulation of
speed, turning, stopping, etc. The ma
chine Is circulated to carry thrco per
sons on a slnglo broad seat, though
operated by one, with surplus power
sufficient to trail ono or two buggies, or
h londed wagon, according to tho char
acter or condition of tho road. It car
ries twelve houfti' supply of gasollno.or
two nnd one-half gallons, and easily at
tains a speed of iroiu, say, ten to
twelve miles per hour on fairly favor
ublo ground, nnd being geared In such
a manner thnt tho movement of a
lever Increases or decreases tho speed,
enables tho driver to climb grude3 of

The famous Swiss watch schools are
said to bo tho most exacting Institu
tions In tho world. Their methods,
which aro doubtless tho secret of their
success, will bo found very curious nnd
Interesting. In one of tho most cele
brated of these Institutions In Geneva,
for exnmplc, a boy must first of all
be at least fourteen years of ngo to
enter. After being ndralttod, tho stu
dent Is first introduced to a wood-turning
lntho and put to work at turning
handles. This cxerclso lasts for sev
eral weeks, according to tho beginner's
aptitude. This Is followed by exercise
In filing nnd shaping screwdrivers and
small tools. In this wny ho learns to
mnko for himself a fairly complete set
of tools. Ho next undertakes to mnko
a larger wooden pattern of a watch
frame, perhaps a foot in dinmoter, and
after learning how this frame Is to be
shaped, ho is given n roady cut ono
of brass of tho ordinary size, In which
ho Is taught to drill holes tor tho wheels
and screws. Throughout this Instruc
tion tho master stands over tho pupil
directing htm with tho grentcst caro.
The pupil Is next taugh to finish tho
frnmc, bo that It will bo ready to re
ceive tho wheels. Ho Is then Instruct
ed to mnko ftno tools nnd to becomo ex
pert In handling them. This completes
tho instruction In the first room, nnd
tho young watchmaker next passes to
tho department where ho Is taught to
fit tho Btcmwlndlng parts nml to do lino
cutting nnd filing by hand. Later on ho
learns to make tho mora complex
watches, which will strlko tho hour,
minute, etc., nnd tho other dclicnto
mechanisms for which the Swiss aro

Tommy Disgusted Mcmusn tint Dentist
t'atxl it Turk l.lftrr.
A Presbyterian minister In ono of
the suburbs of Cincinnati has it bright
nnd mischievous young son, snyn tho
Clnclnnntl Tribune. Tho lnd hnd suf
fered from the toothncho nnd all tho
household remedies had been tried in
vnln. As a Inst resort his father re
solved to tako him to tho dentist on tho
following dny and hnvo tho tooth re
moved. Tho boy, on being Informed of
this, offered n few objections, but, find
ing thnt they were overruled, ho decid
ed to mako the best of It. With tho in
genuity of n Tom Sawyer ho mndo him
self n hero nmong his companions,
flreat were tho tales ho told of them of
tho btreugth thnt would bo necessary
to remove that small "baby tooth."
How tho dentist would bo compell od to
''uso both his hands" nnd probably call
In IiIp nrrlstant. Tho eventful hour at
last arrived and tho boy seated himself
In tho chnlr nnd took a firm grip on
each arm. The dentist looked at the
mouth, smiled, and, taking up a small
steel instrument, literally pried the llt
tlo tooth out. Our young hero looked
at the tooth, at tho dentist, at his
laughing father and then "got mad"
Anger, disappointment nnd disgust
were plnlnly depicted on his counto
nnnco. Not a question would ho nnswer.
Ho quietly walked over to tho other
tide of tho room and put on his hat and
overcoat. Ills perplexed father fol
lowed him and put the fatal question:
"My son, did It hurt you?" Thnt wnB
tec much for the llttlo fellow, and with
two big, angry tenrs rolling down his
cheeks ho replied: "Hurt! hurt! Why,
he didn't pull my tooth out. Ho Just
took it out with a tack lifter."

The ratio of sickness rises nnd falls
regularly with death rato In nil coun
tries, ns shown by Dr. Farr nnd Mr. Ed
monds at tho London congress of I860,
when the following rule wns estab
lished: Of 1,000 persons, nged 30, it is
probablo 10 will die In tho year, in
which case thcro will bo 20 of that ago
sick throughout tho year, nnd 10 In
valids. Of 1,000 persons, nged 75, It is
probable that 100 will dio In the year,
In which case tho sick and Invalids of
that ago will bo 300 throughout tho
year. For every 100 deaths let there bo
hospital beds for 200 sick, and In
firmaries for 100 Invalids.
