SCIENTIFIC SCRAPS. An Indianapolis inventor is trying b perfect an electrical headlight for promotives. A new rifle, capable of discharging three projectiles at a time, has been made in France. Some German chemist is at work on * substance which ho claims will su persede gutta-purcha. From experiments at Caracas, Ven ezuela, M. Marcano concludes that the sap of tropical vegetation cireulate s completely through tho plants within a period of twenty-four hours. A shark of the genus Sycinnus is. according to Weideinann, phosphores cent on its whole under surface, with the exception of a black stripe on tlie neck. Its back is non-luminous. A curious fact has been observed by Profs. Ayrton and Perry: Soft iron when heated between a red and white heat ceases to be attracted by a mag net. "When soft iron is bent between red and white hot iron it ceases to be attracted by a magnet. Under experiments mabe by a French chemist it was found that trichinae in the superficial parts of hams, etc.. maintained a very prolong ed existence under circumstances which would be thought likely to de stroy life. t M. Pastuer believes that cholera is pronounced by minute organism of some kind, but the germs have never yet been discovered. He has recom mended the French government to send a special mission to Kg} pt to study the generation of this dreaded disease. However beneficial as exercise, no amusement is free from drawbacks. In a paper entitled "Remarks on One Form of Tennis Knee," Dr. U. Manscll Moullin, assistant surgeon to the Lon don Hospital, shows that lawn tennis players are liadle to peculiar forms of knee sprains, which may be painful and difficult to treat. Cracked earthenware should never be used for domestic purposes. It is a safe rule in good housekeeping to break any fractured stone-ware t 0 pieces and render them unfitted for any employment as utensils. In a paper read before the Academy of Sci ences, Paris, M. E. Peyrusson demon strated very clearly how the germs of cholera, typhoid fever, and similar dis eases may be preserved and communi cated by even the slightest crack or fissure which may be caused by very trifling accidents to crockery and faience. The Jumbo of Crickets, Throughout the whole territory of Utah the cricket is one of the common objects of the country, but there are crickets and crickets, and it is just a well when in search of the best article to "see that you get it." For a con sideration, therefore, I will put the speculator on the track of some of the grossest locusts that ever devoured green stuff—locusts, moreover, that squeak when pursued. Poets (Ameri can poets especially) are very partia to what they are pleased to call the cricket's merry chirp. But the poet's cricket is the insect of the domestic hearth, a pale-colored ghost of a thing all voice, and with an irregular mid night appetite for the kitchen cloths that are hung out to dry before the stove. The Piutes' cricket is very much otherwise. It is the Jumbo of crickets, and just as black. It lives on the slopes of the Utah hills, among the sage-brush, and when alarmed tries invariably to jump down-hill. But being all stomach, and therefore top heavy, so to speak, the ill-balanced insect invariably rolls head over heels and every time it turns a somersault it squeaks dismally. To walk down the hill side, driving a whole herd of these corpulent crickets before me, used to amuse me immoderately, for the spec, tacle of so many fat things simultane ously trying to jump down hill, simul taneously rolling head over heels, and simultaneously squeaking, was mirth ful enough to drive the dullest care away. Life in San Francisco. The people of this city, like those of Paris, live largely at restaurants, says a San Francisco letter. The number and variety of eating houses are re markable. They are on every street, and of all grades and finish. The pro prietor of one of the largest told me they were furnishing from 4000 to 4500 meals per day. I know of no American city where one can live so cheaply so far as eating is concerned as here. Housekeeping is more ex pensive than in the east, as rents are very high. But restaurant living is reduced to the lowest possible cost. The result is that hundreds of couples together with much of the single ele ment, hire rooms and then take their meals at an eating-house. At the "Poodle-Dog," a dining-room patron ized by wealthy people and those who desire to be numbered among the "tony" ones, it is very easy to run a dinner up to $2 or $3, but at most of the first-class restaurants a good dinner can be had for from two to four bits,(a bit is five cents) according to the vari ety of dishes desired. A lady told me her breakfast usually cost her five rents. LATEST NEWS. LoNPror.

Milly Walker has been a notorious character, and learning that her wound was mortal, made a dying cot fossion to a priest and to the sher iff. She said her real name was Mary Ga il ole, and pleading earnestly for forgiveness, confessed that years ago, when she was but tifteeu years old, she had killed her betrayer. His name, she said, was George Radcliffe, and she described how she had shot him while riding in a buggy with him in Menefee county. The body she hid in a cave on the banks of Snelling Creek, describing the lo c ility. Radcliffe was known to have been murdered, and Frank Tompkins, Radcliffe's bitter enemy, was arrested for the crime- While in jail at Frendburg awaiting trial a band of masked men broke int • the prison a-vl lynched the supposed murderer.

At tho recent term of the Calcasieu Parish District Court a white man named Oscar Martin was convicted of an attempt to murder his father, whom lie shot and wounded, and a negro named Lewis Woods was convicted of assaulting a negro girl. They were both young men, not moro than twen ty-one years of age. While awaiting sentence they succeeded in escaping from jail, and took to the woods. A few days afterward Lewis Woods came up with a Mrs. Humphries, the wife of a well connected gentleman, in the woods at a point near Hear Head Creek, about thirty miles northwest of Lake Charles, and assaulted her. Martin does not appear to have been present at the outrage. Tho country was aroused, and the fugitives, who had kept together, were tracked and lollowcd, and finally driv en into Texas, where a wt-t-kugo in Jasper county, near Cairo, they were arrested by citizens of that Mate. The men were held until the arrival of dep uty sheriffs from Calcasieu, who took the prisoners and started by rail with them for Lake Charles. On arriving at the Kdgerly station in Calcasieu parish, the train was hoarded by fifty armed men, who forci bly took the men oil the train. It was evident that the mob intended to make short work of the matter. They start ed with the two prisoners lor the woods hack of Edgerlv. Some of them had ropes and others shotguns, but it was reserved for the negro not to die either by the rope or powder and shot. He seemed to le indifferent to his fate, and trotted along in the middle of the mob as if he were the most un concerned man in the party. Not so with tho white man. lie seemed to fear the worst, and it was often neces sary to push him along in order for him to keep up with his black com panion. When the timber was reached tho negro was quickly lashed to a tree, and the crowd began to pile fagots about him. While the work was going on he begged to exonerate his companion, the white man, who, ho said, had no hand in the outrage upon the woman. "He bogged me not to do it," said the negro, "and that is all I have to say." Those words saved the life of the white man, and he is now in the jail at Lake Charles. When the pile of dry brush was al most as high as the head of the negro the match was applied, and soon tho flames were seething and crackling around the doomed man. As they be gan to scorch his tlesh his agonizing shrieks seem to penetrate the very heavens. It seemed to be the intention of the crowd to prolong his sufferings as much as possible, and some of the crowd, which had now increased to about 'J 00, pulled some of the fire away from the victim. He begged them to shoot him—anything to relieve him from his sufferings. The sufferings of the man did not cease for fully twenty minutes, and the agony that he endured in that short space of time was more than pen can picture.— Maryland Democrat. Apples as Food. From the earliest ages apples have been in use for the table as a dessert. The historian Pliny tells us that the Kom.ms cultivated twenty-two varie ties of the apple. In these latter days we probably possess over two thou sand. As an article of food they rank with the potato, and on account of the variety of ways in which they may be served, they are far preferable to the taste of many persons; and if families would only substitute ripe, luscious apples for pies, cakes and candies, and preserved fruit, there would be much less sickness among the children, and the saving of this one item alone would purchase many barrels of apples. They have one excellent effect upon the whole physical system, feeding the brain, as well as adding to the llesh, and keeping the Mood pure; also, pre vent ing eonstipat ion, and correcting a tendency to acidity, which produces rheumatism and neuralgia. They will cool off the feverish condition of the system ; in fact, they are far better for these purposes than the many nostrums which are highly praised in the adver tisements, and are so constantly pur chased by sufferers. A ripe, raw apple is digested in an hour and a half, while a boiled potato takes twice the time. "NYhen apples can he purchased at cheap rates, every family should keep a dish of them in the dining-room, where the children can have access to and eat all they please of them. They will rarely receive any injury from them, if they are thoroughly mastica ted. Baked apples should be as con stant a dish upon the table as potatoes. Every breakfast and tea-table should have a dish of them. Baked sweet apples are a very pleasant addition to a saucer of oat-meal pudding, and when served with sweet cream they are very appetizing. They are not so commonly used as they should be, as they will supply as much muscular and nervous support as dishes o£ meat and vegetables. Thous ands of bushels of sour apples are used for pies and puddings in hundreds of families where well-baked, sweet apples will prove more nourishing food, and much more economical. They are also good food for old people, and are usually greatly relished by them. In my own family they are always, when in season, a part of the meals of the day, and are as commonly used as a slice of bread. A Partially Dead Man. The Mo rainy Herald , Baltimore, Md., states: Major 15. >S. White, of this city, describes his miraculous cure as follows: "I have been a partially dead man for ten years. Doctors attributed my sufferings to the enlargement of certain glands. The quantity of Med icine 1 took without relief would be sufficient to set up a first-class apoth ecary shop. Finally St. Jacobs Oil was recommended. I had my spinal column thoroughly rubbed with it. All those knots, kinks and stiffness have passed away and I .1% myself again.

Ottr Best Families. I have been troubled for over six years with a severe kidney o >mi Inint, also a weakness of the urinary orgnns, with its attendant troubles. My water needed oonatant atten tion, some days as nrny as twenty times, with severe pains in the bladder, as well as In the back and loins. At times T pea>ed a limited qnantityof urine, highly colored with unnatural heat and sediment; freqnently evacuations would bo very painful. I con cluded that T must do something for it, feir ing that mo e serious trouble would follow. I vent to the druggist nnd was recommended to use Hunt's Remedy, as it had been used with wonderfulmcce'-sinse\e ,- alsevere CSßHS of dropsy and kidney nnd blndder atfeo ions here in Bangor. I concluded to try it, and be r ore I had used one bottle found it was helping me beyond my expectations. My wafer I ornmo more natural, less color and sediment, the pains in back nnd that heavy fee'ing gone, with a general toning up of the system; and I continued to ne it until lused six I ott'es, and it hns completely cured me. Others of my family have used Hunt's Remedy with equally r good success, and we do not hesitate to recommend it far tin 1 near, believing it a duty as well as a pleasure to recommend so good a medicine as Hunt's Remedy.

Worn, Weary, and WretchecL " "As weak as a cat" is an expression irequently used by debilitated sufferers who are trying to tell hojv forlorn they feel. It is an incorrect ex pression, for a cat is one of the most agile and vigorous animals in exist ence. It would be more correct to say, "as weak as a limp old rag," for that gives the idea of utter inability to hold one's self up. The weary per son who feels thus is generally worn, worried, woeful, and wretched. Sometimes it is a case of overwork, and sometimes of imperfect nour ishment. The blood in the system of a person who is "as weak as a rag" is in a wretchedly thin condition. It needs iron, to impart richness, redness and strength. This is to be had by taking BROWN'S IRON BITTERS, the only safe and proper preparation of iron in connection with gentle and powerful tonics. The physician and the druggist can tell the worn and weary Low'\aluable a remedy BROWN'S IRON BITTERS has been found in actual every-day use. U _ A NOTED BUT UNTITLED WOMAN.
