VITALITY OF ANIMALS.
Coder Certain Conditions It mil II us
ponded for a Long Tlma.
Familiar Instances uf suspended vital
ity, or rathnr latent vitality, are af
forded by sued, which may bo kept for
yearn without allowing action, but aro
yot capubln of bolnjf recalled to tho ex
orclae of the f unction of I'.fo. Other In
stancoH are alTordod by the lower organ
Ihuih, which will remain dry and Hterllo
for lndotlnito periods, to bo brought Into
full activity at any tlmo by supplying
tho due degree or moisture ana wurinin.
Coming up to higher forma of life, the
name nhenomena are usually manlfeated
In Insects, one of tho normal condition
of wIioho llfo tbo nympha or eiritalii
state is characterized by the exhibition
of tbo external appearance of death.
During this Ktago tho vital processes are
tampered down till only enough are In
Direct tJ maintain a merely vegetative
existence; yot tho tnannt la capable of
Blight motions when suhjecU-d to a shock
or pressure. Tho duration of this ap
parent death varies according to the
species and to cxtcrnul condition.
There aro specie that require two years
of incubation before going through their
metamorphosis. Others pasa to the per
fect state In a few day, lluttorllles de
mand a certain degrco of heat, below
which they wlH not Issue. Tho oponlng
of the chrysalis takes place naturally
when these atmospheric conditions are
realized. If tho season Is late, the
hatching ia also late. Hence we can
prolong the duration of tbo chrysall
stuto Indefinitely by properly adjust
ing tho temperature, delaying to that
extent the metamorphosis of the Im
prisoned mummy Into tho free and
winged Insect. Reaumur, by putting
chrysalides In an ice-box, was able to
keep them alivo and retard their devel
opment severul years, (ioing higher up
in tho anlmul series eggs, which are
analogous to the seeds of plants, present
a romarkablo example of retarded llfo.
(mo- of tho most interesting features
about them Is tho Indopt'ndence of their
vitality, which persists even whon tho
Individual that has producod thorn, and
within whose organism thoy are still
contained, has ceased to live. This fact
has boon recognized in plsclculturo,
whoro artificial fei un latlon has been
successful with eggs taken from dead
fish. Tho persistence of life In frogs is
vory long. Spallanaant preservod some
frogs in a mass of snow for two yoars.
Thoy became dry, stiff, and almost frla
bin, but a gradual heat brought them
back to life. Toads livo been shut up
in blocks of plaster, and then, having
been deprived of all air except what
may penetrato through the material,
and of all sources of food, resuscitated
severul years afterward. This question
presents ono of tho most curious prob
lems that biological Belonce has been
called on tooxpluin. Tho longevity and
vital resistance of toads are surprising.
Besides tho oxporluionta wo havo cited,
mi tu ro Bometlme presents somo nlready
mado, and vastly more astonishing.
Toads aro said to havo been found In
rocks. Such cases are rare, but It
would bo as unroasonablo to doubt
them as to believe in some of tho
miraculous explanations that have been
made of tho matter. The phenomenon
Is marvelous, it Is true, but It Is sup
ported by evidonco that wo arc not able
to contest; and skepticism, which Is in
compatible with scl 'nco, will havo to
disappear If rigorous obBorvatlon shall
confirm It. Tho toad was observed, In
ono caso, in tho atoi Itself, und before
recovering from its longlothargy it had
not made any motion. Ono of these toads
was presented to an academy, with the
Btono which had served it as a collln or
habitation, and It was ascertained that
tho cavity seemed to correspond exactly
with tho dimensions und form of tho an
imal. It Is remarkable that theso toad
stones are vory hard and not at ail por
ous, and show no signs of llsstiro. Tho
mind, completely bullied In tho presence
ol tho fact, 1m equally omburrassed to
expluin how the toad could livo In its
singular prison and how it bocumo shut
up there. M. Charles Kichot had occa
sion to study this question somo months
ago, und euino to the conclusion that tho
fact was real, observing that even if, in
tho actual condition of science, certain
phenomena wero still inexpllcablo, wo
were not warranted In denying tholr ex
istence, for new discoveries might at any
timo furnish un explanation of them.
"The true may sometimes not bo proba

tho truth, not of the probability.

Queer Case of NlKhtiiiitre Doveloped In
u WiimIiIiikIoii Hostelry.
"Among tbo many queer experiences
gained in a hotel," wild tho clerk of an
uptown hostuliy, "are those connected
with guests who aro subject to night
mure, which is more common than luuny
people suppose. It Is not uncommon
for a night in a lingo hotel to develop
ovcrul cases of this kind. In tho still
ness of tho early morning hours heavy
groaus or a shriek limy bo heard sound
ing along the corridor. The hull-boy
wakes up, rubs his eyes and awaits to
sen w hut is coming, and if ho is a now
one at the business half expects that a
murder is being committed.
"We hud u case not long ago of a gen
tleman hero who, during the middlo of
the night, begun pounding on his door,
yelling ut the sumo time: 'Let me out!
Let me out! Help! Help!' Tho hull
boy rushed down to the desk, and, with
the night clerk und the porter, hurried
buck to tho room whence came the
sounds of distress. All was quiet. They
waited awhile, then knocked. Tho sub
ject of the nightmare came to the door
feeling very much crestfallen, llo ex
plained that he had eaten a too liberal
supply of deviled crabs during the
previous evening and that ho hud
dreamed that ho wat locked In one of
the ImmoiiM money vaults of tho Treas
ury, which he had seen during his visit
to the city. His own cries fur help hud
Caused him lo wake. Such cases, mere
or less exciting, are of almost nightly
occurrence in a largo hotel, and are
usually greater when tho social season
is at its height The guests who get In

NOT A VAST CEMETERY.
Figures Knowing That til Karlli la Mora
Than a llurlal Ground.
Again and again thl old poetic funcy
of tho earth a ono great cemetery
burled several times deep with dead
men and women and children, ha liccn
refuted by figures. Hut great Is error
and will prevail, unless the truth la
well and steadily upheld. The popula
tion of the earth is now alsiut ,.MMi,(Kbv
000. Nupposo tho human race to have
existed for 8,000 years, and twhave la-en
always as great as now. In O.ihio year
you have 00 centuries. In each century
you may count three generation of
mankind, or ono hundred and eighty
generation in all, each being a gen
eration of 1,500,000,000. Xow lay out a
cemetery forone generation. It will bo
a huge estimato to every man, women
and child a grave flvo feet by two, or
ten squaro foot Vou want for your
graveyard, then, 15, 0(H), 000, ooo square
feet of ground. A square mile
contains something less than '.'n.ihki.ooo
squuro feet Vou want then, a grave
yard not 55 mile long by 10 wide for
your whole generation. Now multiply
i lils by S0 and you have your huriiil
I'roiiud for fl.OOOyoarsof mankind. That
is. a strip of land l.tMMi miles long by '
miles wldo will be ample. In other
words, a cemetery containing I(io,oo(.
squuro mile would lie sufllclent for tho
entire human race to He side by side.
The estlmuto'whlch I have given you of
continuous population is obviously enor
mously largo. Tho estimato of the site
of each grave is very large. A strictly
correct estimate would reduce tho size of
the required cemetery more than one
hulf. ltut enormous us it is, you could
lay out your burial-ground for ull men
who have lived on earth, so that they
could lie side by side, in Arizona or In
California, or you could lay It out in
Texus large enough to accommodate the
race of (1,000 years past, and
also tho ruco for (1,000 years yet
to come, ull sleeping In tho soli of thai
one State of this I'nlon. Hut some one
says tho race of man has la-en on earth
100,000 yours. This Is a pure imagina
tion, and thero is not, so fur us I know,
c fact on which to rest it Hut suppose
ti is true, und suppose tho population al
ways what it now is. You have provided
for (1,000 yeurs of It Vou want neurly
17 times as largo a cemetery for the
generations of a thousand centuries.
That Is, you want 1,700,000 square miles
in it. I.uy it out whenever you please.
1,700 miles long by 1, 000 wldo. It Is but
a part of tho 1'nited States. And so
enormously lurgo huvo la-en th j rough
estimates thus fur used, it is safe tosuy
that if tho human ruco has been in ex
istence 100,000 ycu-s, a separate grave
could bo provided for every Individual
of tho race within u part of tho 1'nited
States east of tho Mississippi river.
The fact is, my friend, you
need but a very small pieco of the
earth's surface to lie down in. And you
occupy but a very smull space while you
live. Stand In a corner, with your buck
to the wall, and your shoulder iigalnsl
the shift wull. Put a hook against the
wull outside your other shoulder, lose
to It. I.et some one hold u stick across
in front of "your body. So you will
measure how much room you occupy
when standing up in a crowded assem
bly. Vou are u large man if you require
two square feet. The average require
.iient of a generation of men, women
anil children is not one squaro fool und
a half. -More than lS.OOO.OOO persons
can stand on u squuro mile of surface.
Now seo how smull a crowd after
all would be an assembly of ull men
out of ullages and kindreds and peo
ples, were they gathered together.
Curry your arithmetic still further. Vou
laid out a cemetery for tho 1,50(1. 000, (Kill
of mankind now living. Huild a city
for them to dwell In. Average families
ut live persons to a family, an. 1 give each
family a house and lot 'JO feet by 100.
Your cemetery gavo livo persons 5(1
squuro feet for graves. Their city lot is
forty times us large. Your city must
therefore be forty times as large as your
cemetery. Add 'JO per cent, for good
streets. I will not save you or your
schiMil-going child the trouble of "do
ing the llgures." Impress the truth oi
your mind by three minutes' work will
pencil and paper, tliut the whole living
human ruco could be gathered In u
city so small in comparison with
what you have imuglned. And now re
member that ull the estimates on which
we have gone are too large. This city
lot might as well be 'JO by 50. People
live in Hats without back yards, und In
stories ono ubovu another. Your city
modeled after the latest fashions in
cities need not be a quarter the size our
estimates havo made It. When you
have built your city, inquire und be sur
prised to lind tho vast space for garden,
ilelds and forests you havo left accessi
ble to it, whence could come all the ne
cessities and luxuriesof civilized life.

There Is probably no human faculty
that is more in need of faithful and pa
tient cultivation than the judgment, for
I hern is none that has more complica
tions to deal with or more dilllciilties to
overcome. Nevertheless there Is per
haps none which receives less systematic
discipline or upon which people gener
ally are less willing to expend labor
and thought. They train their chil
dren's memory, exorcise their powers ol
expression, school them in habits of
industry, endurance, patience and self
control, but seldom disciplino their
judgment or teach them how to draw
correct conclusions. That, they sup
pose, is something which time und ex
perience will do for them; yet, when
they seo what hasty opinions and ill
advised judgments are continually
tortncil by older people, they might in

TENACITY OF LIFE.
Tits Contrast KxlHtlng Hetween tlia Male
anil Female Sexes.
It appears from tliegathered statistics
of the world that women have a greater
tenacity of lifo than men. Nature wor
ships the female in ull its varieties.
Among insects tho male perishes ut a
relatively earlier period. In plants the
seminato blossoms die earliest and uro
produced on tbo weuker limbs. Female
quadrupeds havo more endurance than
mules. In tho human race, despite the
intellectual and physical strength of the
man. tho woman endures longest and
will bear pain to which tho strong man
succumbs. Zymotic diseases aro more
fatal to mules, and more male children
die than females.
Dcverga asserts that the proportion
dying suddenly is ubout one hundred
women to seven hundred and eighty
men; one thousand and eighty men in
the I'liit'-d States in 170 committed
suicide, to two hundred and eighty-five
women. Intemperance, apoplexy, gout
hydrocephalus, affections of the heart
and liver, scrofula and paralysis are far
more fatal to males than females. Pul
monary consumption, on the other hand,
is more deadly to tho latter. Females
in cities are more prono to consumption
than in the country. All old countries
not disturbed by emigration have a great
majority of females in the population.
In rovul families the statistics show
more daughters than sons. Th Hebrew
woman is exceptionally long-lived; the
colored man is exceptionally short
lived. Tho married state is favorable
to prolongation of life among women.
Dr. Hugh proclaims that there are from
ttvotosix per cent, more males born
than females in the living population.
From which statistics wo conclude that
all women ought to marry, and that as
men are likely to become so scarce, they
can not be sutllcientlv prized by the
other sex. X. V. Ledger.

begin their apprenticeship as dishwash

to rooking hi dinner. Many Kngllsh
lodging-house servants are reully slaves,
and yet they are content They work
from five o'clock in the morning till
eleven at night They aro often taken
from the workhouse, and tho fear of
being sont back is probably the reason
of their contentment In Germany do
mestic service is honorable, and the
young women of poorer classes are anx

Is the riait of the discontent. .Many
ladies, If they have an intelligent girl,
are inclined to tell thorn too much of
their own affairs. Such confidence es
tablishes a familiarity which sooner or
later "breeds contempt." Most girls are
pleased to have their mlstross show an
interest in their affairs, and It is a good
plan, if one hus the opportunity without
being obtrusive, to compliment their
dress If It be neat and tasty, to Interest
yourself to a cortaln extant in tholr
pleasures and Inquire occasionally in
regard to their paronts or frlonds, for
love of kin Is a strong element in most
of the working classes. Never scold a
servant, no matter how trying the of

self a lady should over scold. If things
go wrong, as thoy often do, speak firmly
and insiston their being donedifforently,
but do not say too much.
