Culture by Electric Light.
In the botanical department of Cor
nell University there have recently been
made sumo very curious experiment in
the cultivation of plant under electric
light. A number ol flowers and veg
etable have been placed where tho raya
of powerful electric lamps fall upun
them night and duv, and their grow th
i coinpured with that of others of their
own nnecie planted at the same time
uml tintler similar condition except in
the mutter of light.
The litst anil mos1. noticeable efT'ct
of this treatment in an enormously in
creased rale of growth. Tho plant
which me lighted seem to work day and
night, und to become especially luxuri
ant in fohugo.
Tho vegetables shoot forward with
great quickness, peas, for instance,
which become in a few weeks two or
three times us tall as their brethren liv
ing by common dnvligbt; and the same
thing is true of all the plants.
When it comn to scud or fruit of any
sort, the mutter wna entirely dill'erent.
Here the plants which had grown slowly
and by daylight were ahead. It iH true
that tlie jioa which grew by electric light
eamo to hearing much sooner than ftie
other, but its hastily made pods had
very few peas, often only one, and these
of un interior nuulitv.
In every instance tho reproductive
powers of tho plant seemed to havo
been mont strongly allecled, being sacri
heed to mere folingo ami rapidity of in
crease in general size.
State Kefonil School.
The Ochoc.o lteviow, noticing tlie
fact that there are sixteen boys in tho

"No doubt theso boy would bo better

itentiary, und society would be butter oil
when thoir terms of sentonco expires.
Itut even if tho school wore now ready
to receive them, tboro is no legal way
to get them into it. Though the lust
legislature provided for tho building of
a reform school, tlto members were so
engrossed in their ollbrts to puss the
Portland water bill, they failed to make
any provisions whereby youths convicted
of cnnio can be conlinud in this now m

if convicted of a felony must bo" sen

some provision whereby ho can bo pun

that the next legislature will post

they are bought into contact with tlie

A complicated case was brought into

forin tbia feat waa John Lewis, and he is
suiiljto have made a thorough study of the
subject before risking his nickel. Ho
first bored a hole in the coin and then
fasened lo it -a juiuill jtllk thread. Ho
then dropix'd, the nickel in the slot a '
directed by tU sign ,-anl,drew a cigar.
Seeing that nothing waa stated in II .a
directions as to how many timet one nick
el eould be dropped In he drew hi .
nickel out dropped it in again. (Succeed

he emptied the box. lly die time he
had drawn twenty-nine cigars quite a

as to w hat bo should be churned w ith.
After several suggestions of robbery and

nys: "The biggent stick of timber

it was cut up into span for bridges. I
wan on board the vessel on which it waa

might lie possible to get out one per-,

at tho small end. Such a stick could not
be found near the toast lowovef. One
would havo to go into the interior for it.
A great deal of care would have to be ex

cut I have no doubt it would be tho
largest piece of timber ever cut in the
