' INHABITANTS OF MARS.
A hnou Ailronuuior Thinks That It Ia

A paper has recently beon published

the most eminent of Italian astrono.
titers, of tho result of observations taken
Ity hliu at Milan of the physical condi
tions of the planot Mars. These ob
servations were taken in' the years
1877, 1879 and 1882 periods during
which Mars approached, in following
it elliptical course, nearer to our earth
than it ordinarily comes. It Is well
known that the geography of this
planet has beon for some time past
carefully studied. Maps have boon
drawn giving the sea and continents
thatdivido tho surface of that planet,
and, as a distinguished astronomer has
recently said, so far as tho polar re
clous are concerned, we know more of
thoe on the planet Mara than we do of
those on our own world. It Is known
that Mars hits an atmosphere that
would permit of some form of animal
life, perhaps the sn'ne that we And upon
the earth; that the snow falls In winter
aud melts away in the spring. Indued,
It may be assumed that It has moun
tains, valleys and broad plains covored
with vegetation, much as we are ae
eastowod to tiud it In our country dis
tricts, evvpt that, whilo the natural
tint of grass and leaf with us is groon,
In Mars It is evidently red.
All this, however, has been known
ta astronomers for some time. What
seems tn be a new discovery is that the
land surface of the planet Mars Is, or
appears to bo, divided Into great canals
thirty miles or more In width, and ex
tending In absolutely straight nnd often
ytaraolled lines from the aeacoast for a
thousand miles or more 'Into the in
terior, where they sometimes Intersect
with ether canabt running directly at
Tight angle. This would seem to in
iieat a direction of forces different
front those commonly displayed by
nature. But what is even more re
markable, it wo are to trust our
uthority, Is that observation has
shows In some rases these assumed
canals seem to be in process of con
struction. Sig. Schiaparelll asserts thnt ho was
frreatly surprised to And that the chart
ttf the surface of Mars, carefully pre
pared by him from his own observa
tions uf 1879, was found defective In
1882, because during tho Interval the
number of his assumed canalt had In
creased. But his surprise was changed
to astonishment on linding, during the
course of his observations in 1882, that
at short intervals what might be termed
psratUl canals came, as it were, into
existence. He could hardly assert that
be watched their formation, though in
a certain degree he was able to do this.
What conclusion he draws from this
assertion he does not say, leaving it
lor future observers, when, in a few
year more, a chance for further ob
servation takes place to draw their own
deduction. But, apparently, the as
sumption might be made premising
the accuracy of these asserted facts
that the planet Mars is inhabited by a
raire of beings possessed of enormous
towers, having the knowledge and
strength needed to p-rform in a short
sparse of time what '-ould be almost
equivalent to the construction of a
canal that would reach from the At
. lautio Ocean toChlcagt. with a width
of the Slate of Massachusetts. Of
ronrse, these assertions will be accepted
with a very great degree of skepticism,
but, none the less, ther will add not a
Jiitle to the curiosity and Interest with
which further observations on the
planet Mars will b watched for.
WORSHIPING THE DEVIL.
Uldeous Belief, Rite and Bltol of the
In no part of the world at the present
Is the belief In demonology, or devil
lore, ai4 witchcraft so widely prevalent
as among the native population of Eng
land'i Eastern Empire. Through the
length and breadth of Hindustan wor
shipers of the devil are to be found,
forming numerous sects, whose doc
trines are essentially similar, whether
they inhabit the Coromandel coast, the
Highlands of Central India or the
borders of Afghanistan. Between these
widely divergent points of the great
Indian Peninsula there enn not have
been for ages, if there ever hnd been,
much Intercommunication of the peo
ple, who are In ninny instances ethnologic-ally
different and speak a language
entirely foreign to each other.
The fundamental doctrine of the
dovil worshipers' creed, as gathered by
the writer in conversation with mom
bora of the sect In various parts of Hin
dustan, is that it is improper, if not
actually blasphemous, for human be
ings to offer prayer or sacrifice to pro
pitiate a divinity whose merciful and
forgiving benignity is inconceivably
beyond all his other attributes, and
who could not, even if he would, do
aught that is inimical to tho present or
future happiness, splrital or material,
of beings created after his own image
and loved with art undying and Im
measureable love. With all the sub
tlety of thought and illogical mental
cunning Incidental to the Oriental in
tellect, they will expound In verboso
and highly imaginative language the
grounds oi which a e based the reason
ings that warrant belief .in their creed.
To iho devil, as the omnipotent incar
nation of evil, they attribute essentials
which are plausibly advanced to give
color to the doctrines of their sect
Shnitan, as Satan is named in Hindus
tan, is, according to his worshipers,
inordinately egotistical, and they, with
the hope of gaining his good favor in
their behalf, flatter him by the most
elaborate ceremonials and fervid pray
ers, conducted with all the surround
ings incidental to Eastorn pageantries,
religious and otherwise.
Tho ritual of devil-worship, as well
as the tenets of the creed, modify con
siderably, according to the varying
conditions climatic and geographical,
which obtain from the perpetunlly
snow-clad IlimnlnyasOto the torrid
regions of Cape Comonn and along to
tho equatorial line. The doctrine of
devil-worship Is not confined to the low
or illiterate classes of the people. It
prevails more or less extensively among
those oriental Intellectual dreamers who
rend the institutes of Manu in the
original and discuss abstruse thoolog
ical and metaphysical theories in San
scrit. To the mind of the wily Hindoo
and the bodily effeminate, but mentally
active followers of the Prophet, occult
teachings of the most visionary school
hnvo always had an irresistible fascina
tion and tho spread of European civil
ization and the introduction of tho
English educational system has in
creased rjtther . than diminished tho
Oriental fondness for seml-comittoso
speculation In the realms of religious
Witchcraft also predominates to an
extraordinary extent among the igno
rant classes, which means nine-tenths
of tho population, and the entire social
life both of Hindoos and Mussulmans
lu the mofussel or country districts Is
strongly impregnated with tho doc
trines of devil worship and belief in
witches and witchlore and all the su
perstitions which surround the recog
nised profession of the black art. Nec
romancers and adepts in divination
are numerous, and their persons are
I eld as sacred and their supernatural
powers are acknowledged by the peo
ple as If they were recognized teachers
of the religion of Brahma or Mollaho
expounding the laws of the Koran.

According to a German paper, tho
Inventor of Inciter matches was a po

In 1883, within the walls of a state
prison. Kammerer was a native of
Ludwigsburg, and when sentenced to
six mouths' imprisonment at Hohenas

of an old officer in charge of the prison,
who, muling he was studying chemis

laboratory iu his cell. Kammerer had
been engaged in researches with a
view of improving the defective
steeping system... according to, which,
splinters of wood, with sulphur nt
the ends were dipped into a chemical
fluid in order to produce a tlame. If
the fluid was fresh the result was sat

a time, there was no general disposi
tion to discontinue the old-fashioned
system of using flint and steel. After
many failures Kammerer began to ex
periment with phosphorus. Mid had al

ment when he discovered the right mix

AN ITALIAN 8TATESMAN.
I four Frnaeoeoo Crispl, President W
Italy's Council of Mlnlaters.
Signor Crispl, Prime Minister of
Italy, has been a familiar figure In
Italian politics since 18C1, when be was
elected for Palermo to sit In the
Chamber of Deputies at Turin, the first
Parliament of the new Kingdom of
Italy. At that period Venice and the
Quadrilateral, Including Verona and
Mantua, still remained under the
Austrian Empire, while Rome was
held by a French garrison for the
Pope. The revolution In Sioily and in
Naples, expelling Francis II., had
been effected by the victories of Uiiit
baldi in the preceding year. Among
its most active local supporters t
Palermo was Francesco Crlspi, a young
barrister, who was born at Sibcra, in
Sicily, in October, 1819, and had, in
1848, taken part in the insurrection
provoked by the tyranny of King
Ferdinand, the "Bom ha" of popular
detestation. That insurrection was
suppressed. In Naples and Sicily, by an
army of Swiss and other foreign
mercenaries. Some who had, like
young Crispl, taken up arms with the
insurgents, made their escape to
France, but came to Piedmont or
Genoa when the era of constitutional
liberty for Italians was opened by the
administration of 1) Azeglio and con
firmed by that of Count Cavur. 'In
1859, France and Sardinia caving de
dared war against Austria and prom
Ised the liberation of all Italy, the
putty governments of Central Italy
were overthrown by popular demon
strations; and in the autumn of 18GU
the expedition of Garibaldi from
Genoa, which was accompanied by
Crispl, speedily effected the downfall
of the Bourbon dynnsty. Crispi fought
as a soldier or tho liberty of Sicily,
and held office in its provisional gov.
ernment till its annexation to the
Kingdom of Italy. He appeared in tho
Italian Parliament as the right-hand
man of Garibaldi, whose views were
opposed to the policy of Cavour, and
who loudly demanded an immcdiuto
attack on the remaiigng, Papal domin
ion, at the cost of war with France,
for the conquest of Konie, nnd a re
newal ot the war with Austria for the
deliverance of Venice. Crispi con
tinued for many years as a leader of
the "Extremo Left, or Dcmocratio
party, while he showod constant hos
tility to French influence in the affairs
of Italy. But, since the independent
position of Italy among the European
powers has becomo secure, and since
tho acquisition of Venice, in 1866, and
of Rome, in 1870, satisfied tho aspira
tions of Italian nationality, tho grounds
of thoso party differences huve been

The late Signor Depretis, Premier of

Aa Incident I'rovlnc That It Is 8trongly
Represented In Kvery Sinn.
The talk ono hears on tho street all
tends to convince one more and more
that there is a great deal of human na
ture in man. This is wha a special
examiner of tho United States Pension
Office told me to-day while waiting
for a street-car: "I was examining
and taking evidence In a pension claim
in Nebraska last summer. Tho claim
ant belongod to a little country
church, nnd the witnesses were the
pastor and several members of his
church. It was beautiful to soe the
clearness and directness with which
they all testified and swore that the
claimant had been unable to do any
work on his farm lor live or ten years.
The story waa becoming monotonous
until I visited tho home of an agod
elder in the church, who was some
what deal I explained to him my
office and my business very carefull)',
and then took down his sworu state
ment concerning the claimant and his
disabilities. But to my great surprise
he testitied that the claimant, whom
ho had known intimately for fifteen
years, had never seen a sick day, nor
missed a day from work, in all that
time. 1 cross-questioned him rigidly,
but only mado him the moro emphatic
in bis former statements. So he sigi e l
the deposition, and 1 administered the
oath, and was taking my departure,
when he asked me, in an uncertain,
anxious way: 'Ain't you an insurance
agent?' 'Ain't you going to insure
his life?' When I undeceived him he
looked very miserable, but did not

LIFE IN THE HAREM.
Mistaken Idea of the We tern World as
to aa Kaatern Institution.
In theory the Moslem classes his
womenklnd with the holy of holies of
Mecca. The Innermost shrine of his
temple and the rooms with latticed
windows are both called by the same
name of Harem or "Sacred." The
apartment is harem and the ladles
who live in it are harem for all but the
lord and master. He may enter at will,
but generally announces his coming be
forehand, so that he may not run the
risk of meeting feminine visitors who
are probably the wives of his friends.
In well regulated houses the husband
Intrudes only at fixed hours, per
haps for a short time after midday pray
er, and does not else favor his harem till
he retires to rest. Home life, such as
we understand it, can scarcely be said
to exist for the Mohammedan. The
man lives in and at his work outside,
and the woman among her slaves and
friends in the harem. The most inter
esting viow of the home life of the
harem is when it is considered as
the cradlo in which Eastern
manhood is reared. Schools of
any kind are few and meagerly
patronized, and boarding schools are
unknown. A few boys are sont to
Paris, Constantinople or Syria to be
educated, but tho majority grow up
among slave girls and servants, seuing
a great deal which they ought not to
see, nnd learning very little of what
they should. It is small wonder, then,
that the better moral qualities, if any
were ever inborn, are rapidly obliter
ated, and the boy grows up to the
man saturated with vice and effemi
nacy. The women occupants of the
harem are the wife or wives and the
female slaves. Perhaps on no subject
doos greater misconception prevail
than on this harem slavery. Tho field,
however, is too wide a one to be
toiichod more than incidentally.
The name of slave as app.iou to the
Georgian or Circassian girl is a mis
nomer. She occupies moro the posi
tion of a friend, or at loast of a lady's
companion, if she does not, as is often
the case, become an adopted daughter
of tho house. Sho is well and some
times expensively dressed, and shares
the small amusements of her mistress
at the theater, tho moolid or tho prom
enade. The principal diversions of harem
life consist in the visits of friends and
of a pernicious class of trading women,
who hawk about articles of dress and
gewgaws from one house to another,
retailing the latest gossip and scandal
with their wares, and assisting the
ladies to get into all manner of scrapes.
Wise women, who tell fortunes by
cards and incantations, are also in
great demand, and their vaticinations
are. as a rule, believed in by the ladies
with much tho same delightful and
blind confidence as is given by farmers'
daughters to the mysterious prophecies
f the gypsies. Now and then condign
punishment awaits these hags, as in
the case of the notorious Ayeska, who,
several yews ago, was called for ono
night, hustled into a carrlago under
pretense of vis ting a great harem, and
has never since been heard of. But,
as a rule, their sorceries, evil eyes nnd
charms are perfectly harmless, and
when there is nothing better to do
they are called in to beguile tho heavy
hour. Nor must iho men singers be
left out in the catalogue of delights of
tho harem a delight, nevertheless,
w hich is but sparingly indulged in, and
can only be enjoyed to tho full when
the harem's lord is away.
A notion seems generally prevalent
in Europe that if only the harem doors
were opened a rush for liberty would
immediately take place, and many aro
the sympathies wasted on the supposed
prisoners of the Mohammedan mar
riage tie. In reality, botn men and
women consider their stato far su
perior to that of Europeans. The man
argues thus: "You nre a slave from
the moment you marry. You can not
go out to lunch or dinner or to your
friends without taking your wife with
you. , You can not even leave her
alone tor a few hours without giving
an account of yourself. Such a state
of things would be unbearable to me.
I go where I like and she goes where
sho likes. I pay ,y servants to look
after her, and 1 am sure that she is not
llirting with other men when I am not
by her side. You are never sure of
this," etc This is his linn of rin.
The woman savs: "My reli-rion for
bids me to look upon other men than
my husband. If I changed my religion
perhaps i would like to mix up with
t very fellow I came across, but so long
s i nm a lUanommciUn I detest the
thought of it ' I cover my face from
the sight of the world, as your women
cover their bodies. As to being
watched and guarded, it is a compli
ment wliieh shows how much my hus
band cares for me. If he wero to
leave me to do what I liked. I should
know he did not care for me, and I
should feel deeply insulted."
ills dimctilt for the Western mind
fully to grasp the immense gulf be
tween our ideas and theirs. Their re-
soulng is fallacious and almost ridicu
lous from our standpoint, but it is
good enough from theirs. And, there
fore, as long as the Mohammedan re
ligion lasts, so long will the harem ex
ist And its existence is, on the whole,
a happy and contented one, n spite of
all the reasoning which may be
brought lo show that it ought to be
miserable. Centuries of communion
and contact with Europeans may pos
sibly change the Ideas born and culti
Ysted in the harem, but there is yet no
sign whatever of such a change. Up
