TOPICS OF THE DAY*
The apple and peach crop through
out the West is very light this year.
The peach crop is almost a complete
failure. The plum crop is also very
light. The Rural World thinks that
next year will probably be the big
fruit crop of this decade.
Pennsylvania is in no Immediate
danger of a coal famine. A recent
survey of the coal fields discloses the
fact that there is enough anthracite
coal alone to last 300 years at the pres

Dr. Pasteur says that the only safety
for large cities from the great and con
stantly increasing danger of typhoid
and malarial fevers, consists in having
the sewers air-tight and terminating in
an inclosed space far beyond the city
limits, where extensive chemical facto
ries should receive and convert the
refuse without delay into useful pro
duets. All other systems have proved
to be failures more or less glaring.

The Angler's Favorite Bird.
The kingfisher is specially dear to
the wandering fly-fisher in the "shires," j
says Belgravia. In the most lonely
spots on his stream, from bush to dis- .
tant brake, this bird flashes by him like
a streak of emerald light. He follows,
and in a quarter of an hour or so it
darts past him back again. Thus it is
identified with grassy meadows, scat
tered hawthorne bushes, willow holts,
and other abodes of peace on the
angler's beat. Itself well answers to
its name; a friend has seen it dive
through a thin covering of ice for its
prey, and once shot one which fell on
the other side of the stream, and had a
stickelback an inch and a quarter long,
and still alive, in its mouth on his
crossing to gain his prize. lie gave
the little fish its liberty, and it swam
off as if nothing had happened. The
French legend accounts for the king
fisher's brilliant coloring, and its habit
of darting along the water courses, by
the following scrap of folk-lore: When
Noah sent the dove out of the ark,
knowing the kingfisher's fondness for
water, he let it out also. It flew so
high for gladness that the sky turned
its back blue, and the sun scorched the
lower part of its body to the rusty red
it bears at present. When it returned
the ark had disappeared, and ever since
it has been seeking it with plaintive
cries along the streams and rivers. The
angler finds that his favorite bird in
creases in interest as he thus garners
up any scrap of old-world lore connect
ed with them, and many a gilly and
ancient water-watcher can be com
municative on these subjects if proper
A QUEER RACE.
People Who Had Six Finger* and Six
Toes—Stecent Discoveries In Sonora.
Ancient ruins have recently been
discovered in Sonora, which, if reports
are true, surpass anything of tho kind
yet found on the continent. Sonora is
the norehwestern state of Mexico,antljis
bordered by Arizona on the north and
the Gulf of California on the west.
The ruins are said to he four leagues
southeast of Magdalena. There is one
pyramid which has a base of 1850 feet,
and rises to the height of 750 feet;
there is a winding roadway from the
bottom leading up an easy grade tothe
top, wide enough for carriages to pass
over, which is said to be 23 miles in
length; the outer walls of the roadway
are laid in solid masonry from huge
blocks of granite in rubble work, and
the circles are as uniform and the
grade as regular as they could be made
at this date ly our best engineers.
The wall, however, is occasionally ox
posed, being covered over with debris
and earth, and in many places the
sahuaro and other indigenous plants
and trees have grown up, giving the
pyramid the appearance of a moun
tain. Tothe east of the pyramid a
short distance is a small mountain
about the same size, which rises to
about the same height, and, if reports
are true, will prove more interesting to
the archaeologist than the pyramid.
1 There seems to be a heavy layer of a
species ot gypsum about half way up
the mountain, which is as white as
snow, and may be cut into any con
ceivable shape, yet sufficiently hard to
retain its shape after being cut. In
this layer of stone a people of an un
known age have cut hundreds upon
hundreds of rooms, from 6x30 to 16 or
IS feet square. These rooms are cut
out of the solid stone, and so even and
true are the walls, floor and ceiling to
plumb and level as to defy variation.
There are no windows in the rooms
and but one entrance, which is always
from the top. The rooms are about
eight feet high from floor to ceiling;
the stone is so white that it seems
almost transparent and the rooms are
not at all dark. On the walls of these
rooms are numerous hieroglyphics and
representations ot human forms, with
hands and feet of human beings cut
in the stone in different places. But.
strange to say, all the hands have live
fingers and one thumb and the feet
have six toes. Charcoal is found on
the floors of many of the rooms, which
would indicate that they built fires in
their houses. Stone implements of
every description are to be found in
great numbers in and about the rooms.
The houses or rooms are one above the
other to three or more stories high;
but between each story there is a jog
or recess the full width of the room
below, so that they present the appear
ance of large steps leading up the
mountain. "Who these people were,
and what age they lived in, are prob
lems. Some say they were the ances
tors of the Mayos, a race of Indians
who still inhabit Southern Sonora,
who have blue eyes, fair skin, and
light hair, and are said to be a moral,
industrious and frugal race of people,
who have a written language and
know something of mathematics.
Forms of Lightning.
A flash of lightning is a very large
spark of electricity, just the same
thing that one sees given by an electric
machine in a lecture on natural philos
ophy, the only difference being that
the best machine will not give a spark
more than a yard long, while some
flashes of lightning are estimated
to be several miles in length. Accord- j
ing to their appearance various names
have been in these sparks in the sky,
though in reality all the several kinds
are one and the same thing. On a
warm summer evening one often sees
the clouds on the horizon lit up with
the brilliant glow of lightning unac
companied by any sound of thunder.
To this appearance the name of "heat
lightning has been given, and the
warm weather is often assigned as its
cause. In point of fact, the heat light
ning is only that of a thunder shower
so far of that, while the observer sees
the flash, no sound of the thunder
reaches him. and the intervening
clouds veil and reflect the flash until
it becomes a glow, instead of the sharp
streak usually seen. When the flash,
starting from one point, branches out
and divides into several parts, it has
received the name of "forked light
ning." This is usually seen when the
discharge is near the observer. .Sin
gle flashes bearing a zigzag of crinkled
aspect are denominated "chain light
ning," probably from their resem
blance to a chain thrown loosely on the
ground. Again, when several dis
changes occur from about the same
place at the same time, and are
screened by rain or clouds so as to
light up the heavens with a broad,
bright glow, the title of "sheet light
ning is applied. These four comprise '
all the common forms. There is, how
ever, one manifestation called "ball
lightning." In this phenomena a small
globe or ball of apparent tire rolls
slowly along the ground, and after a
time suddenly explodes, scattering de
struction around. There are few in- ,
stances of this on record, and no very
satisfactory explanation has ever ac
counted for the curious appearance.

Learning a Trade.
Referring to the inauguration of a
class in the science of plumbing, under
the auspices of the Metropolitan Mus
eum of Art, in New York, a corre
spondent of the Philadelphia Record
says: "If this will diminish the number
of young men whc.se highest ambition
seems to bo to stand behind tho coun
ter and wear good clothes, it. will be
public benefaction. There is a great
deal of money in trades and very little
in counter jumping, and yet only one
' voting man in n hundred is willing to
blacken his 1 amis with tools. Itisnot
always tho boy's fault, however. A
| gentleman of my acquaintance, who is
a broker in Exchange place, said to
me. recently: 'I ought to have been a
machinist; 1 would have been rich by
this time. When I was a boy I want* d
to go into the Allaire works, but my
father was afraid it would soil my
hands. He wanted mo to be a gentle
man. The result is that I have nevej
liked my business, and never made
more than a living at it. Had he let
me go in as an apprentice in the nia
eliinist trade I would have been build
ing engines and coining money by this
time, and my whole heart would have
been in it.' The fathers of to-day in
New York are the same. They would
almost as soon bury their sons sis make
them apprentices. The result is a
race of mediocre clerks and book-keep
ers, who find their intellectual level in

boon terribly afflicted for a naraber of years with gravel
and kidney diwao. My mine contained brick-dust

in drops and with groat pain; and hare had to get up aa
many aa tiftoen timna daring the night. 1 tried eeroral
phyaiciana. they did mo no good, but a friend of mine,
who had need Hunt's Remedy, told me to get a bottle
and try it. lie had been cored of a severe case similar
to mine, and that others had naed Hnnt'a Remedy in
Cambridge and pronounced it a medicine of real merit-
After being repeatedly nrgod I purchased a bottle, and
before I had used all of it I passed a atone aa large aa a
pea, followed by entailer ones. I have need in all ten
bottles, and it lias completely cured me. My kidneys
aretn excellent "ondition, and for one of my age (AS)
sixty-eight years, I "in truly say I feel like a young man
with strength and v..lity. My family nae the Remedy,
and would n >t be without It, and never fail to recom
mend it to our friends and neighbors in Cambridge and
Boston. You are at liberty to use my name in praise of
jhe beat kidney and liver medicine. Hunt's Rdmedy."
" Did Wonders for Me."
The shore words are from Mr. Lit vers K EfiV, No. 9
Highland Avenue, Maiden, Maea . April 38, ltH3. He
says; '' I have been troubled for years with kidney and
lirer complaint, followed by gravel, with severe paina in
my back and groins. I had great trouble in passing
water, it being scanty, and accompanied by terrible
burning, the vessel being ooated with brick>dust deposit.
I was recommended t-o use Hunt's Remedy by a friend
who had I men completely curod of a similar trouble. I
purchased a bottle at the druggist's, and commenced to
improve at onoe. I have tiao 1 but two bottles, and It
baa done wonders for me —no more kidney trouble, no
more pain. It has given me new life, and I would not
be without llunt'a Remedy at any price. It is all that
it ia recommended to be, end I cheerfully give this
testimony for the benefit of the many sufferers from
kidney disease and gravel."
