Origin of the Corps of Professors
Before the Naval academy was es
tnblished midshipmen received their
education entirely on board ship. Their
technical education was obtained In
tue scuool of experience, helped out
occasionally by the- voluntary efforls
thi? older line officers. Their gen
eral education was at first neglected,
but later Instructors were appointed
fur service on ships that carried mid
shlpmeu. These . were appointed hy
the secretary of the navy for stated
periods, much as civilian instructors
nt the Naval ncndeiuy are appointed
at the present time. In lSt2 a general
order was issued providing that they
should live and mess with lieutenants.
They were commissioned in 1SJS, lint
specific rank was not given them uutil
the general reorganization of all staff
corps during the civil war.
The late Professor II. II. Lockwood.
U. S. N.. in some very interesting rem
iniscences read before the Naval
Academy Graduates' association In
1S93 relates how the corps of profes
sors of mathematics came to be form
ed. In the early days of the Naval
academy he was one of its instructors.
He hud had service in the army, and
in the development of the course of in
struction he determined, after consul
tation with the superintendent, to give
the midshipmen a little infantry drill.
This did not suit the proud spirits of
the young gentlemen of that day, and
to show their disapproval of this and
other efforts of the professor they hung
him in eftigy. An investigation nud a
court martial followed on the charge
of Insulting a superior officer.
The defense put up the plea that the
instructor was not a superior offl.er.
Such a condition Is bard to uuderstand
at this time, when the status of offi
cers, instructors and midshipmen at
the Naval academy is well defined, but
at that time midshipmen were officers,
while instructors had no official stand
ing. The plea was technically correct,
and to punish the guilty uiidshipmeu it
was found necessary to substitute
charges in which the anomalous posi
tion of the professor in the naval serv
ice could not be made to enter. Upon
these the guilty midshipmen were con
demned and punished.
This incident led to an amendment
in the naval appropriation bill of 1848
giving authority for the commissioning
of twelve professors of mathematics.

A Simple Get-rich-quick Scheme.
Take 1,000,000 cats and get rich
quick. This Is the advice of the Liberte
of Paris to Its readers. The. prescrip
tion is quite simple. A million cats
will supply you with 12.000.000 kittens
a year. The skins are worth a little
over 28 cents each, so there you have
a daily gross revenue of about $10,000.
To skin the cats you will have to em
ploy 100 men, who will charge you $2
per fifty cats. Your net revenue will
thus be reduced to about $9,000 a day.
It should cost you nothing to feed your
cats. Start a rattery. Rats breed four
times as fast as cats, so the cats can
have a daily diet of four rats apiece,
which Is ample. To. feed the rats is
perfectly simpla Give them the skin
ned gats. ' One cat will be ample for
four rats. The scheme works out sim
ply and automatically. The cats eat
the rats, the rats eat the cats, and you
have the skins.

The Chape! of Bones.
One of the most interesting sights of
Malta and at the same time rather a
grewsome one is the Chapel of Bones.
Guides who show visitors round the
island never fail to point this out. The
whole of the sides, arches and about
the altar are the skulls and crossboues
of the long departed monks. Iu niches
round the chapel stand skeletons of
monks in their habits. On either side of
the altar stands a skeleton represent
ing Father Time with a scythe. Stand
ing at the rear of the chapel one can
not but admire and wonder at the reg
ular manner in which the skulls and
bones are placed.
How Parchment Got Its Name.
The Greeks of Pergamus are said to
have first prepared parchment from
the skins of the goat or sheep. They
were curried, deprived of all fat,
thinned uniformly by the knife, dyed
or whitened and finally rubbed
with pumice stone to a smooth and
even surface. Called pergamenum from
the city of its origin, the new mate
rial became parchemin in archaic
French and parchment in the English
tongue. National Magazine.

"When you arrive nt a railway sta-
tlou In Berlin," said a professional man
who spent a year iu Berlin, "you are
not surrounded by a clamoring crowd
of cab drivers, some of whom a stran
ger would he foolish to trust. You tell
a policeman what you want whether

station a uniformed governmental em
ployee, either cab driver or porter,

and when he presents his number, cor
responding to the one the policeman
gave you. you can trust him to take
you or your luggage wherever it is to
go. The government Is responsible for
the safe arrival of yourself and your
luggage at hotel or other destination.

the police courts have little business.

next day a letter informs you that you

with the character of your offense.
You are told that you either can send
the money hy messenger or appear at
the prefect's office for trial at a certain
time. It doesn't pay to give a police
man a wrong address either because
the system Is so perfect that they will

. Elephants Asleep.
A question often raised in regnrd to
the African elephant Is whether this
animal ever rests or not At first blush
it would appear that there could only
be one answer to the question. So
huge an animal must expend a terrllie
amount of energy and therefore, as one
might reasonably Infer, must need
more flm than smaller animals for
rest and.relnvlgoratlon. NeferthWss
many travelers and some naturalists
have asserted that the African elephant
In its native si itte never sleeps or at
least never lies down. A correspond
ent who has sent photographs from
Malek. on. the White Nile, says In the
communication that accompanies them
that the picture represents a "herd of
female elephants photographed lu the
bush near Malek, In the Mogalla prov
ince of the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan. It
has been, maintained that the African
elephant never lies clown to rest. Sev
eral may he seen thus sleeping."
Poisons In the Stomach.
A most curious fact Is that all food
contains the elements of poison... and
in our body poisons are manufactured
from these. For instance, meat fish,
cheese and milk are composed of hy
drogen, carbon, nitrogen and oxygen.
Take away the last and you have prus-
sic acid. We do not manufacture'
prussie acid, it is true. But in every
stomach In the world fermentation
goes on just as In a brewery, and the
poisonous carbonic acid Is made in
large quantities, ir you Dreamed a
few days' output of carbonic acid gas
you would inevitably die. Sulphuret
ed hydrogen is one of the most deadly
gases known, yet in every stomach it
is made at one time or another. In the
stomach all food Is converted into
what we call "peptone," nnd if a very
small quantity of this found Its way
into the blood it would kill as surely
as prusslc acid. Pearson's Weekly.

Story of a "Violin."
On one Occasion all who were pres
ent In the court of Justice at Berlin
had the great pleasure of listening to
a free performance by rofessor Joa
chim, the famous violinist. It appear
ed from the evidence that a dealer In
musical Instruments was charged with
cheating a customer by representing
that a violin which he offered for sale
at $1.25 was an instrument that cou il
be played. The great professor was
called in as an expert witness, and,
taking up the impugned instrument,
he proceeded to play upon It. Under
his magic fingers it really sounded like
a violin, but In a few moments, much
to the regret of his listeners, the maes
tro laid the Instrument down with an
evident air of contempt But be had
secured the accused's acquittal.
