Explaining-WliyTher la Less Deafness.
A perceptible decrease In deafness has
been noticed of late, which is partly ac
counted for by those in position to know to
the more general use of artificial means now
perfected to a degree hitherto impossible.
A very complete device of this kind was in
vented in Bridgeport, Conn., a few years
ago by H. C. Wales, which, being placed in
side the ear, is worn with a secret delight
by many whose deafness is thus never sus
pected. McHale, the able Minnesota legislate!
who was the father of the anti-tights
bill, is said to be the most utterly crushed
man in the United States, excepting,
perhaps, Mr. Ingalls. The people of his

have apparently conspired to make life
a burden to him, and they have suc

The first water mill ever built was
erected on the River Tiber, at Borne,
A. D. 50. Wind mills were in original
use in the twelfth century. Tide mills
were operated in Venice about 1708.
Saw mills are said to have been in use
at Augsberg, Germany, about .1332.
The term "bine stocking" was orig

1400 to designate literary classes by

A substance having all the essential

Bells were invented byPanlinus,
Bishop of Nola, in Campagnia, in or

In Switzerland they first appeared in
1020. The first tuneable set of bells
kuown to England were used in Croy

It is estimated that there are always
50,000 Americans in Italy, and that
there are now ten times as many Ital
ians in this country. Nearly all the
Americans in Italy are well off, and
nearly all the Italians who came to this
country are in poverty. In most cases
the Americans who go to Italy spend a
few weeks or months there, while the
Italians who come to the United States
expect to stay here. The Americans in
Italy spend their money; the Italians
in the United States earn money.
A new glass is said to have been in
vented which is as Lard aud tough as cast

manufacture of stairs, street lamp-posts,
and gas and water pipes. If it can be

thus do away with the dangerous lead
nipe, it will be an acquisition, indeed.
It is thought that these and similar
articles can be made of this new glass
30 per cent cheaper than they can
be made of cast-iron.

Captain Cauuie, of the British ship
Wayfarer, which arrived in Oakland,
Cal., a few days ago 54 days from Ant
werp, reports a weird phenomenon on
the night of Xov. 13. It had been blow
ing for several days, but with nightfall
the air became perfectly calm and the
sea as smooth as glass. Overhead the
sky was as black as ink from the dense
masses of heavy clouds, and with the
barometer at 28.50 a rainstorm was
looked for. The expected downpour
did not occur, but the sea glowed with
a phosphorescence beyond anything the
oldest mariner had ever seen. Tho
ship's surroundings were lit up so that
it was possible to read on deck. No
body cared much for readiug, however;
the contrast between the light from the
sea and the inky clouds was so grue
some that all hands could not help feel
ing that some unnatural catastrophe
was about to occur. The crew were
much relieved when a breeze dissipated
the clouds, and the phosphorescence
was cleared at the same time.
The largest apple-tree in New Eng

traced to a family tradition to 140 years
at least, and it may be twenty or
twenty-five years older. It is now of
symmetrical shape; the trunk is nearly
round, without a scar or blemish; there
are eight large branches; five of them
have been in the habit of bearing one
year, and the rumaining three the
next Mr. Hotchkiss has gathered in
one year from tbe five branches eighty
five bushels of fruit, and his predecessor
has harvested 110 bushels from the
same five branches. By careful meas

trunk one foot above the ground, above
all enlargements of the roots, is thir
teen feet eight inches. The height of
the tree is sixty feet, and the spred of
the branches as the apples fall is 100
feet The fruit is rather small, sweet,
and of moderate excellence.

The actual status of the Itata is not
that of a pirate, but an authorized ship
upon tho seas. She has no flag, no
clearance, no charter. Any ship of any
nation can seize her, and if she resists
she becomos at once a pirate.
The position in which tho United
States is placed by the escaping of tho
Itata is a peculiar one, bearing in mind
the forcible argument which Mr. Evarts
and other able representatives of the
United States laid before the tribunal at
Geneva in respect to the escapo of the
u29,"aftorvard tho rebel cruiser Alaba
ma, upon which arguments Great Britain
was mulcted in heavy damages. In that
case it will bu remembered the suspected
vessel got away before tho British au
thorities had received suflicient in
forii ation. as they claimed, to war
rant them in seizing her. In the
case of tho Itata tho vessel was abso
lutely in the possession of tho United
States Marsha!, and the responsibility
for horesiape ean not Lo evaded. It
may be a question between tho Depart
ment of Justice and tho United States
Marshal as to whether proper precau
tions were taken to insure the dctension
of tho vessel, but as between the United
States and tho recognized Chilian Gov
ernment should Baimaci-da be successful
in the Internecine warfare now in pro
gress, there can be no manner of dispute
as to the complete liability of tho United
States Government for whatever dam
ages the Itata uncaptured may be able
to inflict. There is quite a feverish all
of expectancy round the Navy Depart
ment as to the developements of the in
cident, and many of the officers on shora
are envying the opportunities which the
Charleston and other cssels aro likely
to have of brisk service atloat.
The question of the right of the United
States to tako the Itata on the high sea!
is not altogether settled. The Slate De
partment peoplo have searched theii
authorities and have scrutinized the
facts in the ca;e, aud are inclined tc
doubt the right. The whole question
arises from a dispute as to the charactet
of the vessel. Were she a pirate,
a ship in the service of an
enemy to this country, and a vessel
of American register engaged in act!
in violation of treaty stipulations, th
case would be a simple one But she is
merely a Chilian vessel, engaged in the
transportation of a suspected cargo, a
cargo that may possibly be contraband
in the light of the treaty, and there i!
a very great risk involved. No on
doubts the right of the United States to
arrest the vessel in our waters for th
purpose of examination, and her deten
tion was in accordance with this belief.
Bui now that she has landed the deputy
marshal and sailed along on her business
she may prove a hornet that will sting
In after years
In the matter of the international law
Involved it would seem as though the
State Department is not in entire accord
with the rest of the administration, foi
both Attorney General Miller and Secre
tary Tracy lean to the belief that the
vessel Itata is legitimate prey.
A report has come from San Franciscc
to the effect that Itichard Trumbull, a
member of tho Chilian revolutionary
Congress, has been arrested there. Nc
knowledge of such an act has reached
the Department of Justice. It is stated
there that it would be an easy mattei
for any one to cause the arrest of Trum
bull on the charge of violating the neu
trality laws. The marshal is bound to
recognize an order to this effect con
tained in an "information" or complaint
sworn to by any citizen. In case thcr

Ahmed Vefyk Pacha, the Turkish
scholar and statesman who died a few
days ago, had been ambassador to Paris
and grand vizier, and was the subject
of many pleasant stories.
It is related, for instance, that when
he was governor of Broussa a rich man
had judgment pronounced against him in
favor of a poor man. The latter," owing
to the bribes of the rich man, could not
obtain execution, and complained to
Ahmed Vefyk. After explaining his
case, Ahmed saw the debtor riding up
to the conak upon a beautiful Arab
horse. He ordered the creditor to sit
down, called a messenger, and whispered
to him. The debtor entered the room
and was surprised at tho exceptional
cordiality of the pacha, who Invited him
to sit down, to take coffee and to con
verse. Presently when he rose to leave
the pacha pressed him to remain, and
kept him upward of an hour, until, in
deed, a messenger entered tho room and
placed a small bag on tho table before
Ahmed. When the debtor next rose,
Ahmed took tho bag from the table aud
gave It to him, stating, "This is yours.

The 100th anniversary of the birth of
Mrs. Jennette Chisholm was celebrated
at the home of her granddaughter, Mrs.
William Allen, near Keokuk, the other
day. The venerable lady was born In
Inverness, Scotland, in 1791. When 13
years old sho came to Baltimore, the
ocean voyage lasting thirteen weeks.
From Baltimore she made the trip to
Pittsburg by ox team, there being no
railroads in those days. In 1860 she
came to Iowa, where she has since re
sided. Eighty-two years ago she was
married, and of the union was born four
children, all of whom are dead. Aside
from grandchildren, the only surviving
member of her immediate family is a
sister living in Ohio. She is still hale
and hearty and attends to her own room.
Among her articles of furniture is her
bridal bed, which sho still uses.
The young emperor of Germany now
has no less than three thrones. One is
the old-fashioned affair of the days of
the king of Prussia, another was fur
nished for the occasion of tho Princess
Victoria's wedding, and now a
third appears, to be used only
when his majesty appears as
supremo head of tho United German
Empire. This last one is created in the
white hall of the German Schloss, and
its canopy is of yellow silk and gold
brocade, into which tho imperial eagle
is beautifully woven.

Ges. Lee and Wade Hampton were
passing over the field in the battle of the
Wilderness... They came to a narrow
pass between woods, and Gen. Lee,
noticed that the passes were well covered
by the northern sharpshooters, who
were doing effective work. "Hampton,"
said the commanding general, "I reckon
you had better go 'round through the
trees and meet me on the other side, as
the fire of the sharpshooters is very
.dangerous here." Of course Gen.
Hampton said, "Gen. Lee, I guess if
you can walk there I can follow you."

Jessy Lisd, according to her mem

as a professional songstress very much.
Writing to her father in 1842 she ex
pressed the desire that God would save
her from being obliged to sing on the
stage. During her whole life there was
a gradual increase of religious feeling,
which doubtless induced her early re

through puritanical motives.

"At the last legal execution In the
Creek nation I was present," said Mr.
Leo E. Bennett, the government agent
for the five civilized tribes, the other
day at Washington. "The details were
very different from an execution in the
army. There a squad is detailed, aad
some of the guns are left unloaded, so
nobody can tell who fires the fatal shot.
At this last Creek execution the .con
demned man was seated on the ground,
with his back against a tree and his legs
stretched out in front. He was not
bound to the tree, nor were his hands
tied. Just before the execution some
one put a bandage over his eyes, but the
prisoner tore it off and threw It away.
Perhaps the strangest part of the pro
ceedings was the selection or the execu
tioners. That was left to the condemned
man. lie was told to pick out the two
men who he wanted to do the shooting.
Strange to say, one of the selections was
his cousin. Both men were from the
Light Horse of the nation. The two
men without any unnecessary delay
walked out in front of the condemned
man 12 or 15 feet, knelt down, leveled
their revolvers, steadying the barrels
with their left hand and fired. Both
bullets struck the left breast over the
heart and not more than an inch and a
half apart. The man fell over on his
side and in a few seconds was dead. Ac
cording to the Creek law the third of
fense of larceny is punishable with
death. For the first offense the penalty
is 50 lashes, and for the second it is 100
lashes on the bare back. If there is an
attempt to carry out the death penalty
again for larceny, I Intend to try the
effect of habeas corpus In the federal
court at Fort Smith. Shooting a man
or an Indian for lareeny would come
under the constitutional prohibition of
cruel and unusual punishment. At least
I shall see what Judge Porter thinks of
the proposition. The last Creek execu
tion occurred several years ago. A
Creek woman was condemned to be shot
not long since, but she was pardoned.by
the chief. The Seminoles are the only
other civilized Indians who shoot their

In San Francisco a few days ago Sing
Song, priest in a Chinese josshouse, was
arrested on the charge of cruelty to ani
mals. He was found on Washington
street.wearing a square hat and a long
robe. He was making a horrible noise
by beating cymbals and ringing a bell.
Near by he had a white duck in a tub of
water with its legs tied together so
that it could not swim. When asked
what his performance meant, Song said
that a Chinese woman had died In the
house which he was in front of and he
was trying to "joss" her soul into the
body of the water fowl so that when it
died its spirit would carry the woman's
soul off to the flowery kingdom beyond.
He was very indignant at being arrested.

It is said that between 60,000,000,000
and 100,000,000,000 codfish are taken
from the sea around the shores of New
foundland every year. But even that
quantity seems small when we consider
that over 8,000,000 eggs have been found
in the roe of a singlo cod. A herring of
six or seven ounces in weight is pro
vided with 30,000,000 ova. After mak

the destruction of eggs and of the young,
it has been calculated that in three
years a single pair of herrings would
