Coldest Winter In New England.
The most memorable winter in New
"England of which we have a clear
record was that of 1740-41, says a cor
respondent of the Stonington (Conn.)
Mirror. Then people passed and re
passed from Providenee to Newport
on the ice, and from the shores of Con
necticut to Montauk Point. One rec
ord says that a man drove a horse and
eleigh from Hurlgate, near New York,
to Cape Cod. A sleighing party went
from Norwich to Fisher's island on
the ice the same year. In the winter
of 1857 the boats en route for New York
were icebound near Hart's island for
19 days, and. for three weeks the mer
cury kept in the neighborhood of zero.
"Last summer one of our grand
chidren was sick with a severe bowel
trouble," says Mrs. E. G. Gregory, of
Frederickstown, Mo. "Our doctor's
remedy bad failed, then we tried Cham
berlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy which gave very speedy relief."

THE HUNGARIAN LANGUAGE.
It Is in No Way Related to the Get
1 utterly lail to see where English
men have received the impression thai
the Hungarian language is a sort of
underling dialect- of German, says a
writer in Nineteenth Century, (ier
man and English, as is well known,
are Aryan languages. Hungarian is no
Aryan language at all. Its very char
acter is opposed to that of the German
idiom. If German or English may
fairly be compared to a tree, the
branches and fruits of v.-hich are in
deed visible, the roots of which, how
ever, are underground and hidden away,
the Hungarian language like a tret
the roots of which are almost visible,
and by a kind of linguistic Kocntprr
photography we can almost watcii the
sap of the roots rising into the stem
and branches. It is, in other words
The first syllable of each word repre
sents the root of the word; lenses ov
pronouns are soldered on to the root.
It is originally the language of nom::!
ami roving tribes anxiously clinging to
their word roots for fear of losing all
means of understanding one another
Of German words in Hungarian then
is only a handful, and they are used
mostly as clowns and jestmakers in
the courtly avenues of Hungarian sen
tences. The Hungarians do not detesi
the Germans, but they do not like them,
either. The German, known to tin
Magyars chiefly in his Austrian mani
festation, does not appear a model
worth imitating. .The Austrian is po
lite, amiable, industrious, but, before
anything else, pleasure-loving.
. A Phenomenal Rainfall.
The most phenomenal rainfall record
ed in the annals of Ohio took place on
the 12th day of August, 1861. Mr. S. TJ.
McMillan, who gives an account of this
remarkable, downpour, says that it ex
tended over an area of at least 100 square
miles. The total amount of water which
fell during the 11 hours of precipitation
was 8'4 inches, and of that quantity 4.:)
inches fell in 4a hours. What is meant
by a fall of SVi inches of rain, in so short
a space of time will be better under
stood when the reader is informed that
one inch of rain means 22,000 gallons to
the acre. This immense quantity of
water will weigh 220,000 pounds, or 100

A VALUABLE RAT, THIS.
Keeps the House Free of Mice and J'lays
- tne Violin Nicely.
It is a well-known fact that rats and
mice do not. infest n house at the same
time. . Working upon this. hint as to
the nature of rodents. N. K. Laureson.
of Vicksburg, has adopted a scheme
by which he keeps himself rid of both
pests. This he accomplishes, says the
Philadelphia Times, by capturing a
voung- rat and training him to catch
mice. This singular mouser, whose
name, by the way, is Czar, is doubtless
the most successful one on record. He
has been taught to pounce upon a
mouse on short order, without fear and
without favor, and he shows no mercy.
Of course, he can tollow the mice into
Close quarters, and never has . been
known to lose his quarry. Strange
to relate, large rats have given the
house the go-by als.i, seeming to under
stand that the place belongs to Czar,
and that there must be no encroach
ment upon his prerogative.
Laureson is very fond of his queer
pet, and has taught him many interest
ing tricks. Among others he has
trained him to handle a bow, and with
a miniature violin Czar manages to
scrape the strings in a way that is not
unmusical. Of course it has been im
possible to teach him really to play
a piece, but sitting up on his hind legs,
with his fiddle grasped in his tiny claws.
Czar produces a sort of half-screeching
sound that is altogether weird and
fantastic. Laureson is himself a vio
linist of no mean order, and Czar likes
nothing better than to sit on his mas
ter's knee and listen to his playing.
