i:ntertaiulng Description of Tropical Vege
tation by Miles Reck, esq.
The meeting of the plant club was well
attended en Monday evening. The paper
en Cruciferous Plants was read by Master
W. S. Adler, a high school boy, who has
already analyzed three hundred and eighty
plants during the present season. After
this analysis of the striking flower of the
Tulip tree, Lereodendren 1'ulipifera, Miles
Reck, esq., was introduced and gave a very
interesting description of tropical vege
tation. Many of our readers will remember this
gentleman as a genial friend of their early
days, but as most of the members of the
Plant Club are younger, Mr. McCaskey in
troduced him as an old " High school
Mr. Reck has traveled considerably in
Seuth America and the West Indies. The
island of Trinidad, and ethers, he spoke of
at considerable length. He mentioned two
striking points of difference between the
feiests of the tropics anil our own forests.
First, the want of symmetry and grace
fulness in the foliage as compared with
our own ; and second, the thickness of
the leaves, tough and leathery instead of
being delicate and easy of motion. The
first difference is probably owing te the
great struggle for existence. The growth
is se violent and rapid that each tree
crowds its neighbor, and only these which
sheet up high have any chance, the smaller
kinds being crowded te death. The sec
ond difference in the case of the leaves is
probably a prevision against the great
heat of the sun, which would burn
up leaves, fine and light in structure.
There arc never found such grass-grown
spots as characterize the temperate zone,
but always a thick rank growth of brush
and vines where there are no trees ; and
where the trees grew they will often be
entirely covered, trunk and branches,
with vines blooming with bright colored
flowers. Often ibis will be se thick as te
give the forest an appearance of a huge
blanket thrown ever the tops of the trees.
Again the trees will be covered with
1 ar.isites, and the different kinds of orchids
run up te large numbers, one gentleman
in Trinidad having as many as three hun
dred species which he obtained by having
the trees en which they fastened cut down
and the orchids transferred te his estate.
One of the parasites, called the " tree
killer," fastens itself in a lump and then
throws out huge arms around the tree
and chokes it te death, and though the
tree will decay until it is blown down by
storms, and until there is no sign of it left
this parasitic plant still lives, the natives
maintaining that it lives forever.
The ferns en the trees are also very
beautiful. In the case of the tree fern the
stem grows as high as the trunk of some
of our trees, and then the large fronds
spread out, forming a great canopy ever
some of the reads, while below the horses'
feet the ground is carpeted with Begonias,
such as we only dream of herc, and the im
pulse is te alight and gather them
though there would be no end te the
In some places, where the hillsides are
cleared for cultivation, the bottom of the
ravine is covered with the plant we call
Elephant ear, perhaps twice as large as we
see it here in cultivation.
The rose family is net at home in the
tropics. Mr. Beck saw an apology for
roses in one gentleman's garden, but they
were net even se successful as our attempt
at cultivating Begonias and the Elephant
ear. Berries, tee, which belong te this
family, will net grew in the tropics. He
saw one suecies of raspberry en top of a
mountain, beautiful te leek at, a bright
red, and afterwards enjoyed finding sonic
en the table at the hotel. But he seen
found that they were only put there for
ornament, being utterly without taste and
the people needing te put sugar and wine
ever them te render them at all palatable.
Geed reads de net abound. The rapid
growth of vegetation makes it quite an
item of expense te keep even the railroads
cleared. Walking along the Panama rail
road ameiig a growth of sensitive plants,
the motion of his walking produced a wave
of noise of the plants closing two or three
feet ahead of him. The guides cut the brush
and vines away as they go along, and in
some places is found a very refreshing
drink from the sap of one of these vines.
They cut oft a section two or three feet
long and the sap runs se fast that one
needs te be in haste, or he miss his drink.
Mr. Beck has been employed in astrono
mical work of high grade for a number of
years. He spent three years in the Argen
tine Republic in mapping the southern
heavens, he was also employed in the same
direction while in the West Indies. He
has for the past three years been doing
some of the most difficult mathematical
work at Washington.
Fer the I.ntkllkiencer.
Foreigners who traveled through the
Northern States during the late war, found
it difficult te realize that we had a million
men. Broadway, New Yerk, was as crowd
ed as ever with a busy, heed less throng,
and save for an occasional uniform in the
streets, in the cars, at rural stations or
lines of travel, there were no indications
of the bitter struggle that was deluging
the Seuth with bleed. Only fifteen years
have passed since the great rebellion
clcsed, and peace has covered with flowers
the deadly rclkjs of battle. The soldier
has forgotten, as a dream of years age,
the perils of camp and field and prison, and
only fights his battles ever when mere
important business is net pressing.
The widows and orphans werl, they have
long age dropped their crape and gene en
their way. Ged help them ! Seme have
been prospered, ethers have lived te envy
the sleep of the dead. But there is one
day which brings back old recollections,
and makes us ponder en the cost and
wrong of war the day which is celebrated
with mufiled drums, flags at half mast,
and garlands of flowers scattered as a dec
oration upon the graves of a million dead
patriots. It is the one touch of humanity
which is kept alive te contrast the miseries
of war with the blessings of peace. " Dec
oration Day " forces en us the hard but
touching fact that there is many a gentle
heart still weeping proud tears ever its
best love sacrificed for a nation's safety.

7pert of the Building Committee.
A special meeting of the school beard

the report of the building committee, and
take action relative te the erection of a
new school building en the let at the cor
ner of Lime and Lemen streets.
The following members were present :

tion, viz :
Seseleed, That the building committee
be, and are hereby authorized te advertise
in such newspapers as they may determine
upon, for sealed proposals for the erection
and construction of the new school build
ing in accordance with the plans and spec
ifications agreed upon, and en the site
fixed upon, and award the contract there there
eor te the lowest and best bidder.
II. E. Slaymaker,
J. I. Hartman,
Thus. B. Cochran,
Rebert A. Evans.
Accompanying the report, the commit
tee submitted drawings of the plan of the
building. After these had been inspected
by the members of the beard, the report of
the committee was very briefly discussed.
Mr. I). G. Baker opposed the tearing down
of the old school buildings until the new
buildings shall have been erected. He
favored fronting the new building en
Lime street, far enough north net te in
terfere with the old buildings, and moved
an amendment te that effect.
Mr. Baker's amendment was lest by an
almost unanimous vote, and the yeas and
nays being called en the adoption of the
report and accompanying resolutions of
the committee, they were adopted yeas,
22 ; nays, none.
Mr. Baker called attention te the fact
that one or mere teachers had resigned,
the resignations te take effect June 1. As
tlie beard did net meet again until June 15,
he suggested that the superintending com
mittee should temporarily supply vacan
cies. The president said the committee had
power te de se.

"That green stulf?" echoed all the
ether passengers, rushing te the window.
" Yes," he replied, " that bright, dark
" Why," they chernssed again, in dis
appointed tones, "it leeks like grass !"
" I thought wheat was yellow," said the
passenger with the sandy goatee ; " don't
they always talk about the yellow fields
and the golden grain ?"
" That's when it's ripe," exclaimed the
man en the weed box.
" Wheat yellow when it's ripe ?" in
credulously cried the sad passenger. " I
guess you're thinking of corn meal out of

" There are two kinds of wheat, aren't
there ?" asked the tall, thin passenger.
"Yes," said the man en the weed box,
" spring and winter."
" Hew de they differ''"
"Well," the man en the weed box said,
"Spring wheat is planted in the spring,
and Winter wheat is planted in the win

wheat," the fat passenger said.
" Yes," the man en the weed box as

of inquiry, he added, "it is planted in the

sandy goatee remarked, "that spring
wheat was planted in the fall and harvest

The man en the weed box said : " Yes,
he believed, come te think of it, that was
the way of it."
"And winter wheat, then," the sad
passenger suggested, is planted in the
spring and harvested in the winter?"
The man en the weed box shifted un
easily in his seat and looked nervously upJ
and down the car.
"Well, yes," he said, he "guessed it
was that way."
"Then fall wheat," asked the fat pas
And the man in the weed box bit the
end of a match, took off his hat and
looked into it, and finally said he believed
it wasn't planted until next fall.
" Then you get three crops of wheat,"
said the sad passenger, " off the' same

The man en the weed box said "yes, "
but se faintly that he had te repeat it

" Which is the best wheat ?" asked the
tall thin passenger.
The man en the weed box was heard by
a strange passenger te whisper te the
stove pipe that "he wished he was dead,"
but he rallied a little and said : '
"Yes, for bread. ''
The man en the weed box opened his
mouth te reply, when he caught the eye of
the woman who talks bass fixed upon his
with a strange, intense expression. He get
off his perch, walked down the aisle te the

around for the long-lest tin cup, drew
some hypothetical water into it out of the
empty tank, took a long drink of nothing
