season the proud

Buffalo and Syra
cuse are also putting
up a stiff article of
ball, the former in
Rocond place and the latter in third
position, seventeen points behind. It
in quite probable that Springfield will
finish in fourth plsee, as since her
itmngthening by several of the old
l'roy players ehe is putting lots of Bin
der iuto hor play. Erie is also play
ing well, while Scranton. for
Ihn reason of its being organized so
late in the Benson, is sur
prising some of the old timers, even
thtngh she is beaten in the majority of
contests; and should she keep up the
progressive work which sbo has been
doing tbe past week, and with a little
home encouragement, will compel tbe
leaders to put on their best playing
clothes to vanquish ber in future
games yet to be played. As it is she is
at present keeping abreast with the
much lauded Wilkes-Barre aggrega
tion, and the coming week should wit
ness tbe home team move stoadily up
ward and away from the down river

far in tbe rear to cast even a shadow in
the pathway of Scranton this year,

Tho Fowor of the Eye in tho Dark.
Toward nightfall, as the light crows

creases to Its greatest size bo as to catch
and absorb all tho rays it possibly can.
Thus a cat's eye will grow large at dusk,
and those of the night loving owl are so
made as to produce a greater convergence
of the rays of light, so that in faint light.
It can distinguish objects closer. It is as
great a mistake to suppose that cats can
see in the dark, where no light is, as it is
to suppose that under tbe influence of pas
sion or excitement man's eyes have the
power of emitting light. It Is Impossible,
as has been proved beyound a doubt by
many experiments in uttor darkness. True,
a cat's eyes have a wonderful brilliancy,
but that is due to a "onrpot of glittering
fibers" called the tapetum.
It may be to sonio extent in virtue of
this glitter that they possess their alleged
power of fascinating small birds and other
creatures, though we certainly need not
suppose that the terror and inability to
move evinced by the victim are duo to tbe
power of the cyo alone. Fear of the ap
proaching monster, whioh instinct tells
them is hostile to their life, is fully as para

What Makes the Svrellinz?
Opinions have differed as to the cause of
the swelling aud pain resulting from a
gnat or mosquito bite. Some have main
tained, In accordance with what has always
been the popular belief, that effects of such
niagnitudo could not be produced without
tho introduction of a poisonous fluid,
though they have fulled to show that any
apparatus exists which would be capable
of completely fulfilling such a function.
Though this poisonous fluid la itself con
jectural, a purpose has been assigned to it,
namely, that of rendering the blood more
liquid, so that it may tho more easily be
sucked up. And that some such function
would have to be assumed is tolerably cer
tain, since the poison could hardly be re
garded merely as an implement of offense,
und consequently an advantage to itspos
sesser. It seems scarcely open to question that,
apart from some such function for the
poison as above, the insects could far more
easily obtain the blood they covet and far
less precautions would be taken againat
them if thejdid not produce any painful
results and tl.us rouse the hostility of their
victims, and that, therefore, from that
point of view, a poison could not be an ad
vantage. If, therefore, a poison exists, its
function must undoubtedly be to facilitate
the drawing of tho blood and not to serve
as a weapou.
Influenced by the anatomical difficulties
above meulioned, other observers have
maintained that no poisonous fluid is in
jected, bus that the laceration of tissues
produced by the six minute, acutely point
ed and in some cases barbed organs which
constitute the borer is sufficient to account
for the inflammation and itching. This
hypothesis, again, is not without objection.
It would appear that tho insect sometimes
experiences difliculty in getting at the
blood it desires, for deep perforations of
the skin may bo made without drawing
blood, and then no swelling occurs and lit
tle paiti is felt. This certainly appears a
formidable difliculty iu tiro way of the lat
ter explanation. Kuowledge.
The Itcst or Hunters Get Lost.
Stories are told of guides who have
dropped sticks into streams to find which
way they were flowing, and when the sticks
went iu n different direction from what
they thought was right, disregarding their
plain testimony and avowing that the
stream was running up hill.
Other stories are told of hunters who
have been found frozen to death in the
dcptlis of tangled swamps With compasses
picked to pieces because they would not
point the way tho bewildered man thought
they should, and so were plainly out of
These stories, though individually unre
liable, lear witness to a general truth. The
fact is, that it is the easiest thing in the
world under certain circumstances to be

no one is exempt from this failing.
Old hands know and understand this
fact. It is only the tyros who do not, nnd

Mind Iteadlns fur Boys.
Harold Morse's father belongs to a soci
ety for "psychical research," and the child
has beard a good deal of conversation on
the subject of mind reading. His mother
is afraid he "thinks uud understands too
much for a child of his years."
His father, however, is not nt all
alarmed, and a few days ago repeated to
Sirs. Morso a remark of Harold's in his
"children's mind class," which was cer
tainly well calculated to allay her fears.
Harold had collected the class much,
against the will of several members of it,
who would have preferred to remain out
in the yard on the doorstep.
"Now, you wait hero a minute," said he,
and presently ho returned with suspicious
ly bulging pockets. His father, in the
hall, listened for what would come next.
"Now," said Harold, appearing before
tho class, "you mustnll think hard. How
many apples have I In my pockets? The
boy that guesses right can have them all,
but of course he'll divido, for there are just

ion. Lettuce Matured by Electricity.
Among the bulletins of the agricultural
experiment station of Cornell university is
one that gives a very interesting account
of some experiments made on plants with
a view of determining the influence of tho
electric light upon their growth. To that
eud a greenhouse was divided into two
equal parts by a tight board partition. On
one side the plants are left to the ordinary
conditions of growth, but on the other
side the vegetation was treated to the sun
light by day and to the electric light by
Tho results of these experiments showed
that the use of the electric light at night
hastened tho maturity of the plants, and
the nearer they grew to the light the
greater was the acceleration. Lettuce thus
treated was sold two weeks earlier than
its neighbors on the other sido of the parti
tion, although both were planted at the
sanio time. Equally successful results
were oiit-incd with other vegetables.
