Scientific Miscellany. i
A bequest of $10,000 has been left
to the Paris Geographical society for
the purpose of providing an annual
prize for the best geographical work
either map or book published
during the year.
Arsenic having been found to act
as a preventive of malarial fever,
Mr. w. Mattieu Williams has sug
gested that the generally dQndemned
arsenical wall-papers may be useful
as a protection against the dangers
of regions subject to malaria.
A singular case in charge of Dr.
Strumpell, of Leipsig, a few years
ago, was that of a young man in whom
brain disease had destroyed all sen
sibility to touch, and also the func
tions of one eye and one ear. Tho
youth was wide awake, conscious and
intelligent when the remaining eye
and ear were open, but at once be
came unconscious when they were
Use op Solar Poweb. In a new
French apparatus the heat of the sun
falling upon metallic plates tightly
covering a thin layer of a volatile
liquid, like ammonia, is combined
with the natural coolness of water to
generate power for pumping. With
plates having a surface of forty square
yards, such an apparatus would
hourly raise 792 gallons of water G5
feet in warm climates, and at Auteuil
raises over 300 gallons per hour.
Hydrophobia Most Go. Pasteur
has long been experimenting with
inoculation as a means of preventing
hydrophobia, and is now putting the
final touches to a method which he
is confident wilL assure to animals
including man exemption from the
terrible disease. He intends to put
his system in practice at once, and
has already added to his many trials
ono upon a human subject "a little
boy who had received several bites
from a mad dog.
The Camphor Supply. While
only 225 miles long and 83 wide, the
island of Formosa, just conquered
by the French, is very valuable for
its richness in animal and vegetable
life. One of its products is camphor,
of which it is the world's chief source
of supply, although the tree (Laurus
camphora) also grows in Borneo, Su
matra, Japan, and China. Tho cam
phor is distilled from the finely cut
wood in gently heated crucibles, the
vapors being condensed upon a net
work of rice stems.
buiciDE in Nature. Man is not
the only animal that suicides. Her
rings and other fishes have sought
death by rushing ashore in myriads ;
regiments of ants, by deliberately
marching into streams; swarms of
rats, by migrating in tlie face of their
deadly foes ; and even butterflies, by
flying in immense clouds straight out
to sea. It would be interesting to
learn the causes of such cases of ap
parent wholesale and deliberate self
destruction. Is the act a purely con
scious one, or are the creatures vic
tims of disease mental or physical?
Using the Earth's Heat. There
is abundant reason for believing that
tlie earth's crust is very thin, asserts
Mr. J. Starkie Gardner, and it seems
not impossible that some means may
bo devised for utilizing the intense
heat of the molten mass below. This
is already being done, in fact, to
some extent, an artesian well having
been bored at Pesth to obtain warm
water for public baths, etc. From a
depth of about 3,000 feet a large
quantity of water heated to 101 de
grees Fahrenheit pours forth, and
the boring is to be continued until
water at 173 degrees is yielded.
Molecular Minuteness. The
odoriferous particles which aflect tlie
organs of smell must be inconceiv
ably smalJ.. Especially is this true
of musk, which constantly emits u
powerful odor for many years, and is
aaid to show no apparent los3 of
weicht. Papers perfumed with a
single grain of ambergris were kept
by Hafler for forty years, when the
odor was as strong as over. The
molecule of camphor sensible to the
smell has been estimated by Borde
nave to weigh one 2,262,584,000th of
a grain. Keil has concluded that a
drachm of asafetida exposed to tlie
open air lose3 one C9,120th of a grain
in weight each minute, or one 2,SS0th
of its entire weight in a day.
How the human sy.stem ever reeovers from
the had effects of the nauseous medicines
otten literally poured into It for the suppos
itive relief of dyspepsia, liver couiplalnt.con
stlpation, rheumatism and otherailments, is
a mystery. The uiKehtcf dime by bad medi
cines is gearcelyless than that caused by dls
eiie. If they ho are weak, bilious, dyspep
tic, constipated or rheumatic, would oftener
be guided by the experience of Invalids who
have thoroughly tested Hosteller's Stomach
Hitters, they would lu every instance obtain
the speediest aid derivable from rational
medication. This medicine lsasearchingand
at the same time a thoroughly sare remedy,
derived from vegetable sources, and possess
ing, in consequence of its bxsis of pure .spirits,
properties as a medicinal stimulant lr-it to be
found in the fiery local bitters and stimulants
often resorted to by the debilitated, dyspep
tic and languid.

Bonner wojks hard two or three
days a week and then returns to his
fas't horses. Not content with 100
first-clas3 animals he is ready to
purchase any other that may excel
on speed. Notwithstanding the fre
quent attempts to impose on Bonner,
it is said that he has never been
"jockied" in a horse trade. He pays
enormous prices, but he does not al
low himself to be deceived. He is
not only an equine amateur, but i3
also a student, and he told me that
he had a hundred works on the
horse, all of which he had carefully
read. Bonner has a first-class assist
ant in Oliver Dyer, who is one of the
best working litterateurs in the city.
He reads all articles submitted for
publication, and this is one of the
hardest features in literary labor. He
told me that no man could read ju
diciously more than two hours at a
time, as his brain would then be
foggy- Dyer was at om time a fa
vorite with Greeley, and had a place
on the Tribune. This was a third of
a century ago, and hence he is one
of the veterans of journalism.
What the Star Tells. Proctor
considers it a mistake to regard the
new star in the Audromeda nebula
as supporting the nebular hypothesis
ot Laplace, as that celebrated guess
at world-origins calls onlv for changes
in nebulous matter so slow as to be
imperceptible. The real truth taught
by the sudden bursting forth of this
star is that the Andromeda nebula is
not, as many astronomers suppose.
a vast galaxy of brilliant suns so
distant as not to be resolvable by the
most powerful telescopes, but that it
is simply a star-cloud forming a part
ot ourowngaiaxv or universe. And
what is true of the Andromeda neb
ula is probably so of others, so that
it may be concluded that none of tho
nebula? or star-clouds are external
to our own galaxy, and that tlie other
galaxies of which so much has been
written do not exist.
