The clmppnrul upon the hills near I'lu
ccrville, Cal., presented a novel peculiarity
the post season. The seed-pods, which uro
tbout the size of a marrowfat pea, are Just
cow ripening, and as fust as they matured
they shot themselves off with a banging
poise, liko miniature hand grenades. At
tnidday, when the sun shone fairly upon a
thicket of tho bushes, the popping was in
cessant, and as each bulb exploded, the
seeds were hurled into the air to the hlght
of fiftocn or twenty feet.

A correspondent writing from Niagara
Falls says that where the Suspension Bridge
originally sagged only two or three inches
miller the weight of a train, it now s.igs
ircarly twenty inches. Tho general iin
jiressinn in the neighborhood is that this
great work of urt will one of tlieso days
give way and fall into tho river. Visitors
now walk over the bridge, instead of cross

Fixnixu Drow.veo Pkksoss by Qiick
en.VER. A correspondent of the Troy Times
gives tho following narrative of an occur
rence at Shrewsbury Lake, Vt., ns coming
under his own observation:
1 " The hike is noted now on account of
the death of a young man, a conductor ou
t!ie Rutland and Iiiirlington U iilroad, who
was drowned in it a short time ngo. At
the time he, with several others, were play
ing, rocking tho boat, making it " (Tp wa
ter" when, unluckily, they were swamped,
and this young man, the l-st swimmer in
the lot, was drowned. After a long ami
almost hopeless search afier tho body a
very novel idea was suggested, which, after
trial, proved successful in lead ng to the
discovery of his whereabouts. About three
ounces of quicksilver was put into a lo if of
lirown bread, well baked and thrown out
Into the lake. Tho loaf was discovered to
move directly aguinut Ike wind; soon it stop-
lied, whirled around several tinns and sunk,
bn,- :.,.., . I.. .i . ti. i
IVy immediately rowed to tho place and
threw out the grapplers the first time they
liooked his face, tlie second time the hook
listened to his boot, ami he was hauled
into the boat. When he was found the
Vratcr was 70 feet deep. In his pockets
were a largo silver watch and a considera
ble quantity of silver money which caused
t'io attraction of the quick -silver, and led to
t'te discovery of his watery grave. Tlie ac
cident, place, and singular circumstances
connected with tho sad affair render it re
markable. OitKfjoy Cm JlAnKEr.-Who.it, $la

diHjnvered by Dr. F. Coggswell, of UohIoii, is n

where this discuss is very prevalent, the Salt has
never been known to full in etl'ecting a radical

tism is iihiinsl invariably paused by iiill imiuation
