According to Hervc-Jlongon, the
system of telegraphic weather warn
ings in France was created by Lcvcr
rierin 1S53. In ISTS.a central meteor
ological bureau was established,
and numerous observatories had been
erected all over the country, while
Paris was in telegraphic connection
with 1,500 stations.
Potato Celluloid. A material pos
sessing the properties of celluloid is
now made from potatoes, and is being
used in France for imitation meers
chaum pipes, and for billiards balls.
Tlie substance is prepared by boiling
the peeled potatoes in dilute sulphuric
acid eight parts of acid to one hun
dred parts of water for thirty-six
hours, and then drying between
blotting paper by pressure.
In the opinion of Sir John La wes,
a greater profit may be returned from
sewage if cast into the sea than if ap
plied to the land, for the reason that
sewage will supply the enormous
quantities of phosphate of lime,
potash, and nitrogen which fishes re
quire, but which exist in the sea only
in small quantities. As much, at
least, of there instances should be
returned to the sea as our fisheries
take from it.
Balloons in the Soudan Campaign.
The first attempts at Briti-di mili
tary ballooning are to be made in
Africa, three balloons having baen
sent out for the purpose of making
captive ascents for watching the en
emyjs movement. A hundred or
more iron cylinders containing com
pressed dydrogen for inflating bal
loons form part of the equipment, and
a gas-factory and pumping station
will be established at Suakin for re
filling these reset voirs. Telephonic
communication will be maintained
between the balloons and the ground.
An Age of Horn. A variety of pre
historic objects in horn such as am
ulets, 'cups, knives, daggers, rings,
buttons, bracelets, etc., have been
found in a stratum existing at a depth
of about five feet in the mud of Lake
Neuenburg, in Switzerland. The
finder, Herr G. Kaiser, believes them
to be older than the stone and bronze
implements of the same locality, and
he proposes to call the period to
which they belong "the age of horn."
It may well be doubted, however,
whether the ancient lake people ever
experienced an epoch for which such
a name would be justified, as it is
evident that some implement proba
bly of stone or bronze must have
been used in cutting the horn.
Lung Diseases of "Wild Animal".
Tn the period from October, 1 SSI, to
the close of 1SS4, there died in the
gardens of the London Zoological so
cictv oS.J mammals, 140S birds, and
7SS' reptiles. Mr. J. Bland Sutton
states, in a report to the Pathological
society, that of the death anions the
mammals only five were from genu
ine pulmonary tuberculosis orcom
sumption, showing that the general
notion that wild animals in captivity
are especially liable to that disease
is erroneous." Of the mammals :i0.
were quadrumana. and of them thirty
per cent had other forms of pulmo
nary affection. Bronchitis attacks a
very (great variety of animals, but
other well known chest diseases ap
pear to be chiefly confined to certain
groups. The cafnivora, for instance,
are very liable to double pleurises
and pneumonia, while ruminita have
the peculiar disease known as "Perl
sucht" the so-called bovine tuber
culosis. In birds is noticed a liabili
ty to inflammation of the airsacs,
which gives rise to peculiar exuda
tion in which mould develops and
spreads through the lung.
The Polar Light. Following up
small experiments made in 1871, Pro
fesEor Selim Lemstrom, of the Finnish
Meteorological station at Sodankyla,
Lapland, attempted in 1SS2 to pro
duce an aurora on a large scale from
the electricity supposed to be flow
ing from the air to the earth, the
means employed being a "discharg
ing apparatus," consisting of a net
work of pointed wire conductors
spread over the top of a mountain,
insulated and connected with a gal
vanometer and the earth at the foot
of the mountain. A diffuse light-
which the spectroscope showed to be
identical with the aurora borealls,
was often seen hovering over the
wires, and on some occasions rays be
came visible. Continuing his re
searches in 1SS.J and 1S8-I, Professor
Lemstrom now finds himself able to
as.ert very positively that the aurora
borealis, which has long been a dis
puted enigma, is the reMtit of an at
mospheric electric current, and that
this current can be measured and
studied by means of his "disrh-irsr-ing
apparatus." The zone of fr
quent auroras in the northern hen"-?
phere is a narrow belt ncircliiig ; i

"How do you manage when as
signing rooms to your guests to locate
one on the fourth or fifth floor and
the other on the second, when each
pays the same per diem?" was asked
the landlord of one of the hotels by a
reporter a few days since.
"You had better ask one of the
clerks," replied the boniface with a
smile. "They know all about such
things and will doubtless communi
cate the secret to you."
The reporter sought out the clerk
and repeated the same question. His
reply was laconio and to the point :
"Wc size 'em up."
"But do you never make mistake ?"
asked the reporter.
"Seldom," answered the clerk,
and perceiving that the reporter
would not be choked off he contin centin
ued: "One reason why we seldom
make mistakes is that we can judge,
in a measure, by tho way a man reg
isters of what he has been accus
tomed to at home. If a man will be
contented with a small room in his
own house, he is not likely io make
any very decided objection to the
same accommodation at a hotel.
This is more especially true in the
case of those who. like merchants
.from the interior, come to the city
but once or twice a year to buy goods.
They are too full of business to think
much about the kind of room they
are occupying, and so long as they
have a place to sleep, thev don't care
whether it is on the first floor or next
the roof, besides, they don't like to
have any trouble. They would rath
er put up with a few inconveniences
than raise a row. This is all the bet
ter for us, for we can save the best
rooms for guests who will be willing
to pay a higher figure. The success
ful hotel clerk is not only able to do
this, but he can almost invariably
tell at a glance just how much a man
will stand, and he is very careful not
to over-step the line. Again, look at
the way some people register. The
man who is unaccustomed to travel
ing and stopping at hotels picks up
the pen as if he was afraid of it, and
is singularly precise in the formation
of the letters composing his name.
He writes plain 'John Blank, Blank
town,' as nicely as he is able, and is
perfectly satisfied if the clerk takes
him by the hand and says, as clerks
always do : ' 'Mr. Blank I'm glad to
"The full-fledged drummer or tour
ist is easily identified. He will waltz
up to the desk, dash off his name in
a careless fashion, toss his over-coat
and grip to the bell-boy, and try to
talk with four or five i)eople at once.
He must have a fair room, or there
will be trouble at the oliice. A young
man on his first trip will demonstrate
his Spencerian education ; a country
lawyer will write his name so that
neither he nor anybody else can de
cipher the hieroglyphics, while the
rural legislator will be anxious to let
everybody know he has a right to
prefix honorable to his name. These
characters are universal, and almost
invariably we can get at a man's
character and position in the world
by an inspection of his chirography.
""In small towns hotel clerks nave
a practice of giving the most desir
able rooms to parties who claim to
come from some large city, for the
reason that they should have a bet
ter knowledge of hotel life than their
rural brethern. Travelers are begin
ning to realize this, and will register
as from New York or Boston, in or
der that they may get a good room,
and they win the trick. The most
essential thing in the make-up of a
hotel clerk is to able to fill the house
from the top down, and at the same
time make everyone believe they are
getting the best rooms." Detroit
That Dirt' Dandruff.
Dandruff is dirty and disagreeable
in every way. It soils the clothing
continually, and is accompanied by a
hardly less annoying sensation of
itching. The scalp is diseased. There
is nothing in the world so thoroughly
adapted to this trouble as Parker's
Hair Balsam. It cleanses and heals
the scalp, stops the falling hair and
restores its original softness, gloss
nnd color. Is not oilv. hichly per

The Power of Daulel "VVbiter Gaze.
"One Sunday a student from Au
dover occupied the pulpit, my father
not intending to take any part in the
exercises. The young minister got
along very well with the openintr
prayer and the Scripture lesson, but
when he had read only a verse or two
of the hymn he became confused,
stammered, and at last his voice
failed him entirely. As he seemed to
be taken suddenly ill my father fin
ished the service, preaching an ex
temporaneous discourse. On the way
home in the carriage the young man,
who by that time had quite revived,
being pressed for an explanation con
cerning his conduct, finally con cen
fessed: "Well, sir, it was merely an
unaccountable nervousness. Just a
I was reading the second stanza of
the hymn a gentleman ca:ie into the
church and sat down in a iiroad-atslu
pew directly before me, iing such
great staring black eyes upon me that
I was frightened out of my wits!
Until he was then loM hi did not
know that Daniel Webster was a
member of the congregation or an in
habitant of the town."
Thirteen is an unlucky nuinlu-r for
a poor man to have in his family.
People who are down with rheu
matism sometimes go to the Hot
Springs to be cured. But there is no
need of getting into hot water, when
St. Jacobs Oil will effect a cure.
