The "Homing Instinct" In H;coni.
One of tho most striking power
possessed by nnimnls i thnt of finding
their way homo from a grent distance;
nnd ovor n road with which they nro nt-
Coxed to bo umtcmininted. It has long
oen a question whothor wo are to nttri
bute Uiono romnrkablo performances to a
purely intuitive perception by tho ani
mal of the direction and the practicable
route to his home, or whether thoy nro
tho result of n conscious study of the
situation, nnd a definite carrying out of
woll-judgod plans.
Probably tho most prominent example
of this wonborful power is tho case of
Homing pigoons. 'Aiieso pigeons ore very
strong of wing, and their intelligence is
cultivated to a high degree; for thoir
peculiar "gift" has been niml no of
sinco "timo whereof tho memory of man
runnoth not to tho contrary." Tlio
principle of heredity, therefore, now
acts with much force; ndvorthclcss, each
young bird must bo subjected to wjverc
training in order to fit it for thoso
ardnous temptations which annually
tako place among first-rate birds. As
itoon it tho flcdKlintr is fairly strontr on
its wings, it te tekon n few miles from
tho cote and released. It rises into tho
air, looks about it and starts straight
away for home. There is no myBtery
about this at nt ull when it ha attained
the height of it few vnrd tho bird can
seek it cote, and full of that strong love
of homo which is so characteristic of iU
wild ancestors, tho blue-rocks, it hastens
back to the society of its mates. Tho
next day tho trinl-distanco is doubled,
tho third day is still further increased,
nntil in a fow weeks it will return from
a distance of seventy miles, which is all
that a bird-of-the yoar is "fit" t3 do; and
two years old, will icturn from 200
miles, long distances being loft to nioro
mature birds. But all this training
must bo in a continuous direction; if
tho first lesson was toward tho cast, nb
sequent lessons must nlso be; nor can the
added distance each timo exceed a certain
limit, for then, after this way and thut,
and failing to recognize any landmark,
tho bird will simply como back to where
it was thrown up. Moreover, it must
always bo clear weather. Homing
pigeons will make no attempt to start in
u fog, or if they do get away, a hundred
chances to ono they will be lost. Nor do
thoy travel at night, but sottlo down at
dusk nnd renew their journey in tho
morning. When snow disguise the
landseapo, also, many pigeons go astray.
Nono of these circumstances seri
ously humers tho semi-annual migra
tions of swallows or geese. Thoy journoy
at night as well as by dar, straight ovor
voat bodies of water and llat deserts, truo
to tho north or bouth. Homing pigeons
fly northward or south ward, east or wrest,
equally well, and it is evident Uieir

A Woman Who Refused Amnestt.
Somo of tho "advanced" French journals
havo lately given proof of thoir innate
capacity for hero-worship by extolling
to tho skies Uio civic virtues and moral
excellences of a female luminary of tho
Commune hitherto unknown to famo.
This lady has recontly been amnestied
by tho President of tho Republic, but
from her lofty nature the puling senti
ment of gratitudo is conspicuous by its
absence, if wo may judge her character
by n lotter sho has addressed to that
august functionary upon tho subject of
her pardon. Condemned in 1871 to
transportation to a fortifiod placo, Louiso
Miohel was imprisoned for two years in
Auborive, nnd was theuco convoyed to
Numca. There sho founded a school, iu
which she taught her own peculiar theo
ries, physical and ethical, to tho children
of hor fellow-convicts. An interesting
feature in hor curriculum of study was a
brand-now catechism, in which she ex
ercised her pupils daily. It commenced
us follows; "Who created you ? Nature."
When Uio commutation of her sentence
was announced to hor, sho commented
upon that not of grace in these romarka
blo torms: "I havo ereoted iu my heart
a Paris and a Franco after my owu taste.
Bnt as this France of mine does not as
yot exist, I prefer to remain hero among
the savages. My hour is not yot como.
I am proud, and do not ohooso to inour
the reproach of moral weakness in the
enduronco of my axilo, I know that
Paris takes it deep interest iu me. and
that the Government would bo delighted

Louiso Michel, offered freedom nnd re

fortunately for Europe, differs so widoly
from tho Franco created, by Iter fervid

The Simple i Tuoiel.
Tho engineering enterprise of the pres
ent ago is so grat that thero is nothing
extraordinary iu tho fact that oveu before
the St. Gotbnrd tunnel is completed it i
contemplated commencing n third gigan
tic tunnel through tho Simplon. A com
pany for tho construction of this tunnel
and tho railway in connection wiUi it wao
formed in 1874, and it has already laid
down tho line from Lausanne through
tho valley of tho Rhone to Breig, at the
foot of tho Simplon. Tho French minis
ters, together with M. Oambetta and
also President Grovy, aro Tory anxious
Uiat this colossal undertaking should be
proceeded with without delay, and it fs.
affirmed that tho French GoTrcrmsssii in
tends to apply to the chambers for a
grant of 48,000,000 francs lor this pur
pose. It is assorted that tho Itahau
Government is disposed to undertake
the construction of a lino from Isill, at
tho foot of tho Simplon, which will bring
tho tunnel into connection with the
Italian railway. This line, it is estimated,
will cost some 28,000,000 francs. Con
cerning tho tunnel itself tho following
details aro taken from tho records of the
posts and telegraphs. Though the
Simplon will be longer than either the
Mont Cenis or the St. Gotbnrd tunnel, it
is thought Uiat the construction will not
bo more difficult. Tho entrance to the
St. Gothard tunnel is situated at an alti
tude of 1152 metres above tho level of the
sep, and the Mont .Cenis tunnel at 1500'
moires. Tlio entrance to the Simple)
tinnel will be situated comparatively
low, and the railway leading to it from
Lausanne is quite straight, with an in
cline in no case greater than one in 100,
On the northern slope, howover, Uie in
cline will be greater 13 in 1000. In con
sequence of the low position, of Uie tun
tel the work will not be subject to such
constant interruption by the snow as Las
been Uie case with the Mont Cenis and
St. Gothard tnnnels. The Rhono on the
Swiss and tho Rivera on the Itab'an side
will furnish tho necessary water power
for the boring, and, thanks to the warmth
of the climate of tho canton of Wallis, it
will not be necessary to suspend opera
tions oven in the most rigorous season.
The tunnel will be oven longer than tho
St. Gothard, as Uiis latter is but 15 kilo
meters in length, whereaa tho Simplos.
will be 17 kilometers long. Geologists
are of tho oninion that the stone of the
Simplon is less hard than that of either
Mont Cenis or St. Gothard, and it is cal
culated that the boring can be proceeded
wiUi at tho rate of from nine to ten
meters per day, so Uiat the tunnel will
probably be completed in six,or at meat,
seven years from the date of its an
nouncement. The estimated cost of the
enterprise is 80 000,000 franca 74,00,. .
000 francs for thoinoneliteri:JBrig;
4,000000'francs por kilometer. Tat m
tunate may be considered a little mga m
comparison with the St.Gothard Tunnel,
which is being constructed for 2,000,000 .
francs per kilometer; butl,000,000 francs
will oo expenueu on me completion o
tho tunnel, and 5,000,000 on tho building
of a largo international station at Brieg.
