The twelvemonth we all agree in number
ing 1887 was in aomo respect a singular pe
riod. But, upon the whole, it averages well
with the yearn that went before It. In
chronologically considering a given year one
almost insensibly turns first to its necrology,
for onomay measure the importance of a
year very accurately by taking note of the
important figures who have passed from the
world's stage during its sway. And it was
indeed a goodly company that passed from
the visible to the invisible during the
year 18b7. Poets and statesmen, and
warriors and beanion, singers and actors,
and financiers and eminent people of all de
grees. But the world goes on very well with
out them, as it will continue to go on long
after thoso who come after them have been
succeeded, in turn, by others.
Humanity made a good bit of material
progress during 1S87. To be sure, no won
derful new invention came into general util
ity, and no one of the few great scientific
prises that mother nature sometimes gives
to her persevering children was found
between its ertremo days, but there
was a steady improvement of such mechan
ical contrivances as man had already made
himself master of; many miles of new rail
road were constructed, many new industries
were established and many old ones were ex
tended. And while not all who contribute
to the nation's wealth by the labor of the
hand and brain have profited by their work
as they should, there was a steady im
provement of the condition of the
working classes during the year. The
unemployed and the destitute are to be f ;und
mostly in the great cities of the earth, and it
is there that most of the riots of the year
took place. Loudon suffered more than
usual Among the most important strikes of
the year was the 'long&horeme's strike, left
over from 1SXS and concluded in February;
ha printers' strike iu New York, St. Louis
and Chicago; the cigarmokerV strike and
the big coal strike ordered iu tho middle of
Among the moit notable events of the year
was the lutnging of the Chicago Anarchists.
A complete list of the dork deeds com
mitted in 1887 would include everything in
the way of crime that the mind of debased
man can conceive or carry into execution,
but only such crimes as from their extraordi
nary nature demand recognition in the record
of a year's doings are here set down.
The casualties of 18S7 include fire and
storm and flood, and that most awful mani
festation of nature's power, the earthquake,
besides those casualties that are solely due to
the carelessness of man himself. The most
appalling disasters of the year were the
earthquakes of tho Italian Riviera and the
floods caused in China by the Yellow river
bursting its bounds.
Eighteen hundred and eighty-seven wit
nessed no great wars, and the fact that the
republic of France passed safel through a
crisis that was feared would precipitate tur
moil and bloodshed should be a matter for
tho encouragement of the hopeful student of
humanity. Two powerful monarchs cele
brated important dates in their lives with
great success Victoria, queen of England,
completed tho fiftieth year of her reign and
tho Emperor "William of Germany parsed hl
The year closed with the ever present
eastern question menacing the peace of
Europe with rather deeper mutterings
than usual, and it is quite within
the bounds of possibility that the first
few months of 1888 may bring storms of shot
nnd shell to busy towns and quiet valleys
that have not seen worse storms than rain
and wind and snow for years. In America
the year's last days looked upon the busy
preparations of politicians and voters for the
coming presidential campaign, and 1888 will
be a much livelier political twelvemonth
than its predecessor.
But the year's record win speak for itself.

Peculiarities of the Hippopotamus.
Beginning with the exterior, the skin is
of enormous thickness nnd toughness.
From it are made tho terrible whips
called "sjamboks," a stroke of which will
cnt n groove in a deal board. A large
sjumbok affords the otily argument to
which a native draught ox will listen,
and a smaller instrument, called familiarly
a "cowhide," is used iu lieu of our riding
whips. As the hippopotamus spends so
much time in the water the skin is per
forated with a number of pores, through
which exudes a thick, dark, oily secre
tion, which, like the fur of the seal, otter,
beaver and other aquatic animals, keeps
the creature dry, even when it is sub
merged. When in July, 1849, Obaysh, the first
hippopotamus ever brought to England,
was taken in the Nile as a youngster, its
slippery skin enabled it to wriggle out of
the arm of its captors, and it was only
secured by driving a boathook into its
hide, the scar remaining through the rest
of its long life. When in May of the fol
lowing year it arrived in London I went
to see it and inadvertently patted it, not
knowing ot tho oily secretion. Conse
qnently a pair of new kid gloves which I
was wearing were utterly spoiled. A fe
male was afterward obtained, and in 1871
was born the first hippopotamus ever pro
duced in Europe. As its mother did not
know how to manage it, the young calf
was taken away and fed artificially. Tak
ing it from its mother was a most perilous
task, and, after a most exciting series of
adventures, was achieved by Scott, the
man who was afterward so well known as
Jumbo's keeper. The little creature
weighed about 100 pounds, but kicked
and screamed like an adult, while its
round, smooth body was m oily that Scott
could scarcely hold it.
Now we turn to the head. The eyes,
ears and nostrils are set nearly on the
same plane, so that the animal can f.ink
itself entirely below the surface, and be
able to perceive the approach of foes by
hearing, sight and scent. When it lies
motionless and dozing in the water, it Ls
naturally a little lighter than a corres
ponding bulk of water, and so floats with
only a little of the back, and the ears,
eyes and nostrils above the surface. Ilut
it often has to sink to swim for sonic dist
ance under water. This necessity involves
several other peculiarities of Ktrncture.
Kotlilug but "Candied" Xloney.
In n German periodical it is Ptatcd the
Jews in Moldavia havo a method of mak
ing honey Into n hard white sugar, which
is employed hy tho distillers of Dantzic to
make Iheir liquors. The process consists
in exposing the honey to tho frost during
three weeks, sheltered from the &un and

which Isn bad conductor of heat. The

as sugar, transparent and white. Chicago
To say that we have n clear conscience
