WEIGHT OF BIRDS' HEARTS.
They Aro Heavier In Proportion Than
Thoso of Animals.
Most pcoplowill bo surprised to learn
that tho hearts of birds aro far heavier
proportionately than tho hearts of ani
mals, including man, bnt a little ex
planation will filiov, that this is qnito
natural. Tho ruoro tho body works tho
greater tho domaud npon tho heart, npon
which falls tho duty of driviuc tho
blood through tho body; hencotho heart
develops and becomes heavier. Every
body knows that birds aro anions tho

creatures. Tho swallow can ovcrtako an

Tho celebrated ornithologist, ilaroy,
states that u sea gull weighing 1 .
pounds is capable of performing in ono
second work equivalent to raising a
weight of nino pounds ono yard high. A
man weighing 130 pounds, to bo equal
to tho sea gull, would havo to lift 780
pounds ono yard high in ono second If
man becomes an athicto or carries
heavy loads, his heart grows propor
tionately. No wonder, therefore, that
tho hearts of our activo feathered friends
aro strikingly heavy as compared with
tho bulk of their bodies.
Tho averago weight of tho human
heart in normal circumstances is fivc-
onc-thousandths of tho total weight of
tho body. Dr. Carl Parrot has lately
weighed tho hearts of various animals
and birds nnd has found tho averages to
bo as follows, tho figures representing .
tho one-thousandth parts cf tho total
weight: Pig, -J.52; ox, 4.59; sheep, G.01;
horse, G. 31. Tho domestic animals thus
como fairly closo to man. Tho wild
roebuck has an exceedingly heavy heart
Most birds aro a long way ahead of
animals. Tho carrier pigeon comes out
at 12.25; tho common sparrow, 1G.22;
tho hobby, an extremely activo species
of falcon, 16.08, and tho song thrush,
25. Tho heart of tho last named is thus-
fivo times heavier than that of man in
comparison with tho total weight.

His observations show that a high
temperature, a certain degrco of humid

developments of thunderstorms. A col

tho west coast of Africa between 5 and

third zono comprises the tropical regions
of America between 20 degrees and 23
degrees north latitude, where tho mean
annual number of storms exceeds 100.
To tho north of this zone, which is
termed the electric equator, tho storms
decrcaso in number until tho deserts of
Africa, Egypt, Persia and central Asia
aro reached, where tho rainfall is scanty
and thunderstorms rare. To tho north
of tho zono of deserts, especially over
tho continents of Europe and Asia, the

COMMERCIAL VALUE OF SERMONS.
A Great Dlvlno of Iindon Slakes a De
parture and Stirs TJp a Hornets' Nest.
Tho Rev. Dr. Joseph Parker, pastor
of tho City Temple, ha3 been expressing
high indignation becanso somo newspa
pers printed extracts from a Eormon
without his permission. Tho irato
preacher of tho gospel of Christ ovcu de
clared, "Tho man who reports a sermon
without tho preacher's permission is a
"thief." Ho explains frankly that tho
preacher may desiro to ecII tho sermon
or preach it elsewhere on tho next Sun
day. "A Dick Turpin of a reporter"
This strong langaago provoker many
unkind remarks about tho gentleman
who, sinco Spurgeon's death, has been
considered by many as London's great
est pulpit orator. It really does seem
that tho soul saving business, like all
other things English, has got down to a
strictly commercial basis. Somo rather
awkward extracts from holy writ, in
cluding quotations from tho lips of tho
preacher of tho sermon on tho mount,
an authority usually held in quito high
respect at tho City Temple, havo been
brought to Dr. Parker's attention this
week by tho London press. Some, oven
of tho parishioners of this gcntlo fol
lower of Jesus, havo been disturbed by
his words. Thus ono writes to Tho
"Dr. Parker's letter causes mo somo
qualms of conscience. A few weeks
back I was ablo to pour consolation into
tho heart of an old friend, who was in
beautiful sentences I had heard from tho
City Templo pulpit I confess it escaped
mo that I ought to havo charged my
friend 3s. Od. for tho uso of tho preacher's
balm for wounded souls and transmitted
tho money to tho owner of such mental
medicine. I think Dr. Parker will see
that, oven in theso ungodly times, tho
public aro not yet ready for viewing
what thoy aro told is tho houso of dod
as a shop and tho proclamation of tho
everlasting gospel as a trafficking in
marketable goods. Doubtless Dr. Par
ker's letter will help tho peoplo to seo
him and his work in tho right light."
Others put tho pertinent inquiry
whether Dr. Parker is greater than his
Master. It is recalled by tho newspaper
men that in his earlier days ho not only
welcomed tho presenco of reporters, but
used to beg editors to send them, and
when nono camo ho was not abovo sum-
marizing his sermons himself and send
ing reports to tho newspaper offices. No
man, in fact, knows better than Dr.
Parker how to utilize tho newspaper for
gratuitously advertising himself. 'When,
a few years ago, ho aspired to fill Henry
Ward Bcecher's pulpit, ho took immense
pains to obtain tho assistance of all tho
agencies engaged in tho business of ca
bling news to tho American press.

Tho Metamorphoses of a East.
English sculptors aro not half up to
date, perhaps because our fewer polit
ical changes havo not sharpened their
wits. Tho Parisians aro just now laugh
ing at tho vicissitudes of a bust of Louis
XIV over tho colonnado on tho east side
of tho Louvre. When Pcrrault erected
tho colonnade, tho bust was an exact
likeness of tho "Roi Soleil," but under
tho first empiro tho official sculptor
caippeu on tno llowmg wig and pared
tho noso down to tho Napoleonic pro
portions. When tho Bourbons came
back, tho wig was replaced and tho
necessary hump put on tho nose, but
both wero removed during tho hundred
days. But after Waterloo tho peruko
and the aquiline noso wero restored, and
tho troubled bust had rest, though now

Tho fall of Caprivi was predicted at

tho young emperor's head and found it
sadlv lacking in "concentrativcncss.
A man with such a head must havo
changes, and so Mr. Donovan predicted
a year ago that Caprivi would speedily
go tho wav of Bismarck. Tho phrenol
ogist's advico toPrinco Hohenloho is as
follows: "In order to keep tho emperor
out of mischief his lovo of travel should
bo encouraged as much as possible. Ho
should co to Chicago next year and
then in turn bo persuaded to visit Asia,
Africa, Australasia and South America.
By this means ho will let off his desire

Coffins for 10 cents each I They wero
groat bargains at a public salo today at
Hnlmoville, near Bristol. So cheap
wero thoy considered that a man bought
ono apparently for each of his children,
and Bucks county is tonight flooded
with walnut coffins of all patterns.
Tho property of Lewis P. Townsend
of Hnlmoville, tho defaulting treasurer
of the Nowportvillo Building associa
tion, was today put np at auction.
Townsend wa3 short in his accounts
about 4,000. A crowd of peoplo from
that end of Bucks county wero attracted
by tho Gale. Tho auctioneer first knocked
down a few horses for a mcroong.
Then tho wagons and carriages went
Other articles of less valuo about tho
placo brought trivial prices. Townsend
did an undertaking business and in his
day carried on a good trade. Ho always
kept in storo a largo number cf coffins.
Today, when all thovisiblo stock and
personal effects had been disposed of,
tho auctioneer and his assistant vanished
for a moment. A minnto later they re
appeared bearing a highly polished
walnut casket Mounting his block, tho
auctioneer began to dilato upon tho
beauties of tho article.
'Who'll make a bid?" cried tho auc
tioneer. His hearers seemed horrified at
tho idea for a moment, but tho stillness
was broken by:
"I'll givo a nickel for it."
Laughter - greeted this bid, but tha
auctioneer looked solemn and business
like. "No telling how soon yon may need
it, " ho urged. Ho looked hard at a thin
visaged man who had several times
coughed in a sepulchral manner. Tho
man turned away.
"I'll mako it a dime," camo a timid
voice, and tno comn was ins.
Tho ice enco broken, tho coffins com
manded a readier Eale. It seemed to bo
greed that 10 cents was tho top notch
figure, and tho auctioneer, having bid
them up to that sum, would lot them
go. i'ranic urewn tnen starteu in anu
bulled tho market considerably. Brown
