When an animal chews its food and
spits it out —which is called quidding
—it indicates a diseased, overgrown,
or injured tooth. This interference
with the mastication produces indiges
tion and failure of condition, but these
effects will soon disappear wlicn the
cause is removed. The teeth should
be examined and those that are found
disordered in any way treated as may
be needed. If the edges are sharp or
project, they should be rasped and
smoothed, or, if requisite, the tAoth
should be removed. The trouble will

A German paper gives the following
interesting method of starting plants
early: The seeds of peas, beans, cucum

when a little grown are lifted and the
roots dipped in a mixture of clay,
chopped moss, water and loam, and on
withdrawal are sprinkled with firm,
dry earth. A piece of tuoss is then
flattened into the form of a plate and
a little earth sprinkled on it. The
prepared plants are then placed on this
plate, the moss folded over the roots,
tied on so as to form a little ball and
set away on boards or shelves, until
the season for removing to the open
air comes, when they are planted, pot
and all, which gives them an early
The experiments were made on the
apple and pear. A vigorous apple
tree, eight or ten years old, which had
scarcely made any fruit buds, has done
best when about half the roots were
cut in one season and half three years
later, by going half way round on op
posite sides in one year and finishing
at the next pruning, working two feet
underneath to sever downward roots.
It always answered well also to cut
from such trees all the larger and
longer roots about two feet and a half
from the stem, leaving the small ami
weaker ones longer, and going half
way round,, as already stated. The
operation was repeated three or four
years later by extending the cut circle
a foot or two further away from the
tree. By this operation unproductive
fruit trees become thickly studded
with fruit spurs and afterward bore
profusely. This shortening of the
roots has been continued in these ex
periments for twenty years with much
success, the circle of roots remaining
greatly circumscribed. The best time
for the work, has been found to be in
the latter part of August and begin
ning of September, when growth has
nearly ceased and while the leaves are
yet on the trees, causing greater in
crease of bloom buds the following
year than when performed after the
leaves had fallen.— London Garden.

FORESTS AND FLOODS.
Tlic I>r lit met lon of the Councrthr Cnn*f
or flic l.ntler.
Many persons assume that a great
flood contradicts the theory that cut
ting away forests causes exceptionally
l)\v water in the denuded country.
The truth is. the destruction of the
woods means water courses to run ex
traordinarily low ami high, according
to the season. In ISSI we had the
lowest water ever known in the Ohio,
and to-day we have the highest water
ever known. These extremes eiually
illustrate the theory we urge upon tho
attention of tho people.
The reasons are perfectly distinct.
Take a mass of mountains on the Alle
ghany, Monongahela or Kanawha.
Let us suppose them clothed with
trees from the foot to the crown, and
with underbrush and mosses, with beds
of half-decayed leaves, resting upon
soil that represents deposits of leaves
and vegetable growth for thousands of
years. Each mountain is an enormous
Sponge. The rain may fall for days,
and the greater part is absorbed, satu
rating the soil, tho grass, the leaves,
lingering in the bushes and the trees, j
The half-decayed logs will hold barrels
of water, and for weeks after a heavy
rain the moisture is trickling away in
thousands of flush springs. Cut away
the trees —the underbrush perishes,
the moss is dried up. the soil washed
away and the rocks are exposed. The
rains descend, and the mountains shed
the water like the roofs of houses. All
that falls makes its way into the tor
rents at once. Take a thousand
mountains at the head-waters of the
Ohio, and reduce them to barrenness, .
and it follows that the river is lower
in drv weather and higher in wet
weather, and more and more subject to
extremes of high and low water.
Europe is suffering more from floods
than in former generations. They are
the clearlv-traced results of the de
struction of forests, and made more de
structive by a system of levees that are
equally false and futile. The experi
ence of Hungary and northern Italy is
especially instructive. The preserva
tion of mountains from destruction;
that is, from becoming utterly barren
—a desolation of rocks —is a duty that
public safety demands. The greater
part of Switzerland would have been
uninhabitable long ago if it had not
been for the systematic cultivation and
preservation of forests. There are
many mountain sides in Switzerland
that are wonderfully supported by
trees and shrubbery, cared for with a
full appreciation of their importance.
The wasteful, reckless cutting of
trees, and carelessness, or worse, in
burning away woodlands, must stop,
for it is a public mischief. Forest
culture in the mountains is needed;
an! the whole trouble is not in the
higher lands. The hillsides must be
cared for, as well. There is away of ;
plowing them that is conservative
and when there is a ten lency to wash
they should be supported by grasses.
Here the rotation of crops comes in,
the preservation of brooks by the cul
tivation of willows, the rest r it ion of
land that is growing ragged un ler the
rains by the native forest trees, or. if
the case is bad, trees of quick growth.

Hearing in Insec's.
The sense of hearing in insects has
been recently studied by I Terr Gruber,
lie found the cockroach very sensitive.
On sounding a vio!iu-notc when a
cockroach was running across the
flyor the creature always suddenly
stopped. Again: a number of these
cockroaches were inclosed in a glass
vessel, and on making af strong sound
there was evident agitation and excite
ment; some would fall down from the
glas, as if paralyzed. A cockroach
was hung by a thread from its hind
leg; when it was quiet a how was
drawn sharply over the vio'in-string.s
at the distance of about four feet,
whereupon the insect was greatly ex
cite 1, and struggled round, getting its
held uppermost. Beetles also were
readily affected by sounds, hut grubs
and ants gave no certain indications.
Of aquatic insects various kinds of
Corixa were tried. These would
often remain quite quiet for several
minutes, but, on tapping the glass
with a glass tube, they rushed aboflPt in
much agitation. A disk at the end of
a long rod, drawn to and fro in the
water near a quiet Corixa, produced
no effect; but, on conducting the sound
of a struck bell into the liquid by the
rod, there was lively reaction; similar
ly when a glass bell, stroked with a
bow, was brought to touch the water.
These creatures were also sensitive to
high violin-notes in air, to the sound
of a metal plate struck with a hammer,
etc. Still more sensitive to sound
were various aquatic beetles. On the
other hand, various larvae, especially
of Ephemerides, were unaffected; but
these were sensitive to mechanical agi
tation of the water. Ilerr Gruber
considers the response the insects
made to sound an indication of true
betting. WA net mere rtfu* Uw.

Dr. Merkel states that the bight of
an individual after a night's rest,
measured before rising from the bed, is
two inches greater than it is in the
evening, measured standing. There is
a gradual diminution in bight, caused
by the yielding of the plantar arches
and of the- intervertebral discs; and a
sudden diminution, when the indi
vidual rises, occurring at the articula
tions of the lower extremities. The
sinking at the ankle is one-third of an
inch; at the knee, one-twelfth to one
eighth of an inch;at the hip two-fifths
of an inch. The shortening at the
ankle is probably due to the elasticity
of the cartilages. At the top there is,
in addition, a sinking of the head of
the femur into the jotyloid cavity

A Submarine Army of Torpedoes.
A remarkable means of defense is
known as the "Graydon-Lcach system,"
and provides for the maneuvering of
fleets or torpedoes under complete con
trol, below the surface of the water, and
admitting of entire or partial withdraw
al at pleasure, to permit the passing of
friendly vessels, or enticing hostile ves
sels within the limits and then sur
rounding them with torpedoes that will
insure their destruction. The torpe
does can be massed, moved in various
directions, and, in fact, maneuvered
similarly to bodies of troops, and, being
entirely submerged, give no signs of ap
proach to the enemy. Tho system is
comparatively inexpensive,and the plan
simple. No hostile fleet could enter a
harbor defended by it, and therefore its
novelty, simplicity and practibility
render it very valuable. Though we
have at present no adequate means of
