foaerof Ilia Air,
Few people reulie the vast and
almost wholly unused power of the
air, A quadrillion horse power is
beyond the conception of man, but
the mathematicians may easily
ligure it out The following figures
aiu given by R. JL Thurston in a
aMr on "Modem Uses of the
Windmill," iu the current iiiiiiiIht
of the Engiuccrlug Maga.iue:
"Taking the quantities roughly
and lu 'round numbers' the atmos
phere weighs about a tott to every
square foot of the earth's surface;
25,000,000 Ions per stjuaie utile or
5, ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo tons ou the
tottd of 2,(mm), 000,000 square miles.
Its energy Is that due to the motion
of this inconceivable Mm, at veloo-
it tea varying all the way from the
giMlt lest zephyr to the hurricane and
the cyeloiie,rushiiig over the prairie
or along the surface of the sea at
more than loo miles au hour. A
ruble mile of air weighs about lo,
000,000,000 pounds, and, at the
rate of motion of the cyclone, de
velops 4,ooo, 000,000,000 'foot-tons'
of energy, and, if all employed at
this rate for the performance ot
work, useful or destructive, this
S, ooo, 000, 000,000, poo 'foot-pou mis'
would ho equivalent to more than
2,000,000,000,000, otH) horse-power.
Assuming the moderate velocity of
107 miles au hour for the whole at
mosphere of the globe, its energy
per mile Is ouo-lhirly-sixlh of that
just computed, and 5,ihh), 000,000,-
000,000 tons of atmosphere would
represent about 5o, 000,000,000,000,
000 'fM)t-tons' of energy, and not
far from 5o, ooo, 000, 000, 000 horse
mitter; certainly more than 5oo,ooo
limes as much power as have all t he
engines in the world combined.
Hach cubic mile would store 4o,
otM,ooo,ooo horse-power; and each
square mile, could loo feet of its
superincumbent atmosphere be mil
l.ed, would yield about Mo,ooo,oo
horsepower,' which is not far from
the aggregate of the existing steam
power of the world,

Euroiiean history and law appear
to tiffer Kitil stumbling blocks to the
native student- in the Indian colleges
and achoola. In one iwiier the ques
tion" was to explain the sentence,
"She (Queen alary) was not only his
wire, but lus fneud." The translator
made the passage to run, "She was
not only his w ife, but the wife f all
his friends!" Another student de
fined Salic law as "a law in France
by which no man descended from the
female sex was to get the French
crown. 1 lie Habeas corpus act was
described as a very imjxirtont act
pnsHod in lti'.'S. It declared, said one
student, "that the bread and wrine
token at the Lord's supper is the real
blood and body of Christ"
Another imagined the act of uni
formity to lo a law "that all soldiers
should dress alike." Asked to ex
plain tho expression "a sponging
house another ventured upon the
following wild guess, "In England
there are many people who live by
sponging on others, so there are
houses in which some who ore too
lazy to work depend on others." The
last example is that of an embryo
political economist who on being
asked to write a note on the poor
law said: "The poor laws in 1601
were passed In Elizabeth's reign.
They were that all fires in England
were to ho put out at 8 o'clock."

It is clangorous to get shaved by
an Inexpert, clumsy handed, negli
gent or groggy barber. It Is danger
ous to get shaved in any barber' t
alioji in which tho lather is not per
fectly pure, or in which any of the
tonsovitU appliances are unclean.
The man who would guard against
danger ought to have a lather mug
and brush for himself, ought not to
lot his face lie touched by a sponge
that is iu general use and ought not
to patronize a barber who will use
the same towol for different custom
ers. We whisper theso words here, not
as knowledge for men of circumspec
tion, but as a warning to negligent
men, who throw away dull care when
they get into a barber's chair. We
assure them that there are doetore
who can toll of the perils that maybe

Wonderful Work of Karthwaraaa.
Darwin, the groat naturalist, gava
it a hi opinion that earthworm
annually bring to the surface not
lea than 10 tons of dirt to every acre
the earth over. This they do through
swallowing earth for the take of the
vegetable matter it may contain, the
rejected "casting" being the portion
brought to tho surface, because It ia
rendered unfit for further use by the
action of the worm's digestive fluid.
Thus it will be seen that earthworm!
are the farmer's best friend, aiding in
agricultural work by rendering the
surface porous. Their work of con
stant perforating make the aoil
highly pervious to rain, the tender
stalks of plants, etc. They also covet

Students of natural history have
pointed out many instances of ani
mals and birds adapting themselvet
to changed conditions of life. A
somewhat interesting example ol
this is asserted to be taking place al
tlio present time in Australia. The
fleeces of the strains of English sheep
imported into that continent are said
to be growing decidedly lighter, ow
ing to the fact that the heavy fleece
is not necessary under a warmer sky.
