A riGHTING DiET. .
lack la Said to Ec That of the Veg-e-tartan.
' I regret to say that veg-etarianism is
a fighting diet, writes G. U. Shaw in the
London Vegetarian. Xinety-nine per
cent, of the world's fighting' has been
done on farinaceous food. In Trafalgar
- square I found it impossible to run
away as fast as the racat eaters did.
Panic is a carnivorous r.pecialty. If the
army were fed on a hardy, healthy,
flesbJess diet we should hear no more oi
the disgust of our colored troops and oi
the Afridis and Fuzzywuzzies at the
cowardice of Tommy Atldns. I am my
self congenitally timid, but as a vege
tarian I can generally conceal my
tremors; whereas in my unrcgenerate
days, when I ate my fellow-creatures, I
was as patient a coward as Peter the
Great. The recent spread cf fire-eating
fiction and Jingo war worship a sort
of thing that only interests the pusil
lanimous is due to the spread of meat
eating. Compare the Tippcrnry peasant
to the potatoes-ar.d-buttcrmilk days
with the modern gentleman who gorges
himself with murdered cow. The Tip
perary man never read bloody-minded
novels or cheered patriotic music hall
tableaus, but he fought recklessly and
wantonly. Your carnivorous gentle-
' man is afraid of everything including
doctors, dogs, disease, death and truth-telling.
SCIENCE AND INDUSTRY.
J llabblt Stopped Family Prayers.
"One Sunday we were all at regular
family prayer. A sporting friend was
visiting me, and he and I knelt, facing
a low window with our elbows upon the
silL And from round acorner, lo, tlhere
came up on us a coney, and he reared
np not two yards from us, and he heark
ened unto the prayers, and he winked
his nose at us, till my friend - forgot
himself and exclaimed: ' 'We kin catch
that devil! I threw np the window so
hard that I cracked a pane, and out we
leaped in red-hot chase. And the dear
old archdeacon almost burst trying not
to Iangh. for he had seen tlhc rabbit,
and was a keen sportsman withal. We
ran that rabbit across four two-acre
lots as Ward as we could eplit, and at
lest wc got him into deep snow, where
he gave up and was captured alive. And,
on, looking back to the first fence -we
had cleared, I saw a fuza of white wlils
kers above it, and heard a strong old
voice shout : "They got him J they got
" Greenwich, observatory claims that
it has little clear weather, sun and
stars are wholly invisible every other
day in winter, one day in four in fall,
one in eight in spring and one in six
teen in summer. In the 20 years end
ing with 1S96 there were only eight in
stances of sunlight for 14 continuous
hours. ' .
The number of asteroids discovered
np to the present date is 423. A num
ber of these small planets have not been
observed since their discovery and are
practically lost. Consequently it is
now a matter of doubt, until the ele
ments have been computed, whether
the supposed new planet Is really new
or only an old one rediscovered.
Oil can be automatically fed to rap
idly revolving shafts and pulleys by a
new attachment for ordinary oil cups,
consisting of a tube curved the way the
shaft runs, with a screw cap at the in
ner end, the outer end being left open
to receive air as the wheel turns, thus
forcing the oil through the cup instead
of letting it run to the top of the cup
from centrifugal force.
It is supposed that a Centauri, one
of the brightest stars of the southern
hemisphere, is the nearest of the fixed
stars to the earth. The researches on
its parallax by Henderson and Maclear
gave, for its distance from the earth, in
round numbers, twenty billions of
miles. At the inconceivable rapid rate
at which light is propagated through
space, it would require more than four
years to reach the earth from this star.
The president of the Agassiz asso
ciation, Mr. H. H. Ballard, recently
caught an ant near its hill, shut it up
in a box, carried it 150 feet away, and
set it free in the middle of a shady road.
What followed he thus describes: "It
seemed at first bewildered. Then it
climbed to the top of a ridge of sand,
erected its body as high as possible,
waved its antennae for several seconds,
and then started in a straight line for
Last yeai Dr. Abbott, of Philadel
phia, published some researches which
tended to show that microbes which
could not accomplish the death of
healthy animals proved fatal to ani
mals under the influence of alcohol.
A French investigator has gone a step
further, and has succeeded in demon
strating on irrefragable evidence that
alcohol not only destroys what we may
call natural immunity, but tends to
prevent the acquisition of the immu
nity conferred by the various serums.
Stories of the ravages of termites,
or "white ants." come from the curator
of the Australian museum at Sydney.
Some time ago they destroyed the roof
of the museum building, and it had to
be replaced with a covering composed
largely of steel and copper. Their
work, being carried on in the interior
of the timber, does not reveal itself un
til the structure is about ready to fall
to pieces, and so it was only recently
that the fact came out that the ants had
also destroyed the underpinning of one
of the important floors of the museum.

"Lady Who Sent Senator' Perkina Her
Card Wore Male Attire.
' -The owners of probably half the
cards that are sent in to the senators
are unknown to, their recipients. Sen
ator Perkins one day recently, in re
sponding to one of those unknowns,
who happened to be of the feminine
gender, told the page who brought the
card to show the lady to the marble
room.. He went out there a few min
utes later, expecting, of course, to be
recognized by the lady who had eailed
on him. Norue of the three ladies in
the room came forward, so he politely
asked each of them "in turn if she
wished "to see Senator Perkins." , Re
ceiving a negative to each inquiry, he
started back to his seat in the cham
ber when he met, in the corridor of the
marble room, the -weather bureau man,
who is stationed there, and who is
often called upon by visitors to point
out senators whose faces are . unfa
miliar to the former. Seeing the sen
ator with a card in his hand and a per
plexed look on his face, he asked him
if he were looking for some one.
"Yes," the senator replied, "I re
ccived this card,, and told the page I
would see her In the marble room, but
she isn't there.".
The weather man glanced at the card
ajid grinned. "But she is there, sen
ator," he said, at- the same time point
ing to an individual clad in broadcloth
trousers and Prince Albert coat seated
on a soft in a corner of the marble
The card bore the name of Dr. Mary

JT ''; A Fine Point In Banking-.
: Banks do not usually accept checks
which call for one dollar more than the
amount of deposit, unless the customer
is well known, and the officers are con
fident that he will promptly make up
the balance. Thus, if a check for $200
is presented and the maker has only
$192 to his credit, the paper will usually
go back stamped "no funds." But one
attorney recently got around that. He
had, after long dunning, secured" a
check from a slow-pay debtor. When
it was presented for collection he
found that the deposit lacked eight dol
lars of the amount the paper called for,
and payment was refused. Thereupon
he promptly deposited eight dollars to
amount of the creditor and gained $192
by the operation, for the check was
cashed. Worchester (Mass.) Gazette.
