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 mast active and hard working of living creatures. Tho swallow can ovcrtako an express train. Tho falcon will carry a load wciirhiii" threo nonnil.1 in thn air without hindranco to its power of flight 1 great mental affliction and bodily weak or its speed. In short, they havo a tro- J ucss, by reciting to him somo singnlarly mendous capacity for worl; 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 ll.o. 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. Pittsburg Times. Thunderstorm Zones. This subject has bc-cn somewhat close- ly studied bv Professor Klossovsky, di- I Bsomo uiscovery in tno arcuc re rector of tho observatorv at Odessa, who i ha eginning of August, has Trahlisliefl n n-.r'm n, r,,,-,! whilo tho Dundco whalers Aurora, Ba- distribution of thunderstorms over the ! globe. His observations show that a high temperature, a certain degrco of humid ity and a considerable amount of rain fall aro tho chief agents favoring the developments of thunderstorms. A col ored map which ncccompanies Professor Ixlossovsky s paper shows tho existence of n sono of electric activitv of creat in tensity cn both sides of tho equato; aud this is nlsothozonocf sreatcstrair.'- falL Tho zono is divided into three sec tions, tho first embracing Asia and Oceania, Indo-China and tho Snnda isles to New Guinea. Over this zone tho yearly averago of thunderstorms L 90 to 100. Tho second zono starts from tho west coast of Africa between 5 and 10 degrees north latitudo aud 5 degrees to 10 degrees south latitude, whilo the 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 electrio activity is somewhat increased. Tho data collected from tho high lati tudes of tho southern hemisphere refer principally to tho Falkland islands, whero tho averago number of storms is only four. A Suro Care.

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" prevents this. 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 Times: "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.

Intelligence is given by a whaling '.m to a Dundee paper of a most landEsquimauxweroinPcoEe- they landed a party in Elvin bay. Tho , men cn landing found near tho water's 1 edgo a ring of dead bodies of Eskimos, ' who had evidently died of starvation. Before death tho members of tho par- ! ty had been driven to tho awful extrcm ' ity of cannibalism. Somo of tho bodies wero untouched, others wero partially eaten, and clean picked tones lay near. i 0ao -" decapitated, and tho head was found somo distance awav. Tho re mains wero in a comparatively good stato of preservation. It is supposed that the party had been surprised by winter and had failed to get away from a district which is desti tute of gamo and very barren. Tho crew of tho Balacna bring homo many relics of tho unfortunato Eskimos. 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 that tho subject has been raised possibly M.

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.

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 took as many coffins as ho has children, paying a dime for each. After that tho general bidding was lively, and soon tho coffins wero disposed of. Philadelphia Record. DUELING IN EUROPE. Tho Unpleasant Adventure cf an Essy Golnc Tourist In Italy. Nothing could givo a moro adequate idea of tho "pass to which dueling has como on tho European mainland than tho story told by our Roman correspond ent of an adventuro that lately befell a foreigner on the island of Lido, near Venice. This easy going tourist, laudably desirou3 of foiling all tho social wheels within his reach and reducing friction to rvmiTvi itinin,. riprifcrmr.d to tho .Waiter., of a restaurant, and, feeing him beforo instead of after dinner, trustingly asked him what ho could conscientiously rec ommend.
