Disease is like * I railroad £ r.a i n. II r has a regular way of Icotninp; and ROing F rind keeps on steadily alonp a certain track. You can al- I most always tell how [ :i distant starts, and I where it will prob- I ably end. It won't 'go out of its way to oblige you any i more than a locomo* ' live will. Disease usuallj- begins when , the appetite pives out—that's the first warning whistle. , Then the stomach | and nutritive organs fail to supply Rood blood. The circulation erows poor, thin and tainted. Instead of carryinjcnourishmenf to the different parts of the body it carri<\ poison, which settles at some point and eats away the tissues. According to where it settles it is called liver or kidney or skin disease—scrofula,'erysipelas, eczema, or consumption if it settles on the luntfs. It is all one trouble ; tainted blood ; clear out this taint and build up the tissues with rich blood and the disease is stopped ; sidetracked ; it can't RO any further. No matter |what the name of a disease Is if it's a blood disease.

Kdison's new white light, which he has called the fluorescent lamp, is about ready for (he market. In form it is similar to thu incandescent lamp nuw in use, but in principle it is vastly different. "There is u glass globe from wlm~.li a. part of the air inside ha.s been extracted, but there is no absolute vacuum. Unlike the electric lamp, the whole globe glows with a pure while light of marvelous illuminating power. This powerful light comes from a moUilIic crystal known as "tungstate,-' which is a metal as heavy as gold. In Germany it is known under the name of "tungstcin." The illuminating property, says the St. Louis Kepublic, is due to a peculiar attribute of the tutig- • state crystal itself. The foot that these crystals glow when slightly rubbed was known to the wixard of Menlo 'Park, and he set to work to use that property in the interest of science. The crystals a-re fused into a glass globe by heating the glasw until it is soft. It-then absorbs the tungsui'te crystals and holds them firmly when it cools. Mr, Edison says that he could get the best results when using the. crystals on the sides of the globe. Two wires enter the globe c.t one end. but do not moot, fly moans of a:i induction current, gnu-rated in a fantdic battery the molectilL'S of the wires arc thrown into motion and the impulse thus given travels along the wires until it reaches the ends inserted into vhe globe. This molecular impulse is communicated to the molecules of air in the globe. In turn the air molecules are driven with almost inconceivable rapidity aga.insl the crystals of tungstnte welded into the inner walls of the glass. The impact, causes the crystals to glow. The glow caused by a single blow of those air molecules is, of course, very slig'»*.. but multiplied thousands of times and the blows repeated continuously at an Few Know About the SDak'-rs.

Every wire contains a latent electrical force. This line of force is di-s- i."ibutcfl in every direction, but when 01* electrical impulse is imparted to tlie wire, altlio-ug-h It may not develop into a current of electricity, the lines of force are all turned in one direction. They no longer run in all directions, but are parallel to the long 1 axis of the wire. The wire is then ready to receive a current, One molecule communicates its movements to another until the initial impulse given by the induced current travels along 1 the entire length of the wire, nnd is caught up by the air moln- cule.s in the .frlobc. It is the same ns if a row of billiard balls are placed in n row. A blow is struck a;t one e.nd of the row and all the balls will rem-airi unmoved except the ball nt the cMtrcme other end. The bull will be driven nvay nt u. considerable ra-te of speed. The force of the blow was received by the first l>n)l. communicated to the next, nnd so on, until it shot the lastball away from the rest. Tbls is the process •that takes place in the globe aud produces the Jig-ht. In explaining this process Edison declared tlia.t he was him.wlf surprised •when ho found that the intense white lifht given o.ff by the tungstate was not accompanied by a corresponding dt.- prec of heat. The incandescent lamp transforms 05 per cent, of the electrical force into heat, nnd mily five per cent. is turned into light. This is a tremendous loss from a commercial poi-nt of view. The ne/w lamp is absolutely free from heat. Thnt vraa ascertained beyond porudventiire with, the most delicate instruments. This establishes th<s fact that, nearly the whole force used jn the new liunp is employed in producing light. Edison does not explain the w-hy and wherefore; he simply accepts it as a fact. The high amount of cJectricity required in the incandescent lamp to overcome the tremendous loss of electrical energy, and which is turned into hca-t, is not needed here. This means an astounding' cheapness in lighting and n consxvjuenf commercial gain. The now la-mp will last as long us the globe lasts. It does not have to be refilled with expensive films, and it furnishes the best light that has yot been produced. A two-candle new lamp gives out to the eye almost twice the illumin-ating effect that a two-candle incandescent lamp does. This is explained on thi ground .that the light 3s more pleasmj,' to the eye than the ineiuidescent lamp. It is a pure white light, the whitest light known. The globe looks lilcn ground glass and is all aglow. Th« curvature of the globe serves to intensify the liffht"by deflecting the flying molecules of air from one crystal to nn- pther until the initial force is exhausted. There n-re fluorescent substances even better than tungstate, but Edison is not yet prepared to make them known. .If his experiments are as successful, with those n.s they have been with tnng- Btaite there is no limit to the intensity and beauty of the light. i Clover Bird TunEht to Act an Homer by an Irish Farmer, It is not a usual thing for a. hawk to act as n shepherd, a.nd tbnt is why this particular fowl is entitled to mention. The reputation of the owl for wisdom Kt'enis likely to suffer. The wisdom of the big'-eyod night prowler ,is sorncwbiit problematical aflyway, and history does not record thnt the brains of aai owl were ever put to better use than studying the question of whether the egg or the bird was created first. A farmer living in the south of Ire- Ituid has :i hawk that is a>wise bird and, what is belter, its wisdom is put to good use.

E\vry word of a conversation—no matter how long —n"incs, dales, fig'uiTS nnd l.iits of oratory of all d'.'grees of merit, songs mid jokes spoken in her presence, si?i;m to register themselves indelibly upon her bruin, and by v ; rtue of her remarkable memory she is able to rei'iill them, word for word, even though it be weeks nnd months after. At her ngu—for she is only four years old—much that, she hears no doubt is quite unintelligible, to her as nrc the words of a phonograph to a wild beast. She simply repeat? everything from memory, without knowing aught of the text, of her words. At the Hotel Crellin, says the San Francisco Examiner, where she lives with her parents, .she is the idol and wonder of all who know her, for she is as pretty as she is clever. The first time that the child showed her phenomenal trait was at the age of 11 months. At that time she was taken to see one of IToyt's plays at the Macdunough theater. Upon returning to her home she surprised everyone by repeating word for word one of the popular songs. From thnt time until now little Ethel has been a regular playgoer. >"ow, nt the age of four, her memory has developed so remarkably that it is n common thing for her. after seeing a new piny, to sing, without a single mis- t;ike or the least sign of hesitation, song after song, that she has never heard before. She cruj also repent the lines of the piny with wonderful correctnoss. The child lias a retentive memory for names and dates. In spite of the f.act that large numbers of people see her daily, drawn by curiosity, she never forgets the name of anyone who is introduced to her, and can tell even rtic exact day when she first met them, though it may be months after. It is strange indeed to hear Ethel tajk about (jnestions of public interest that have been discussed within her hearing.

It ling been the duty of the farmer's son, a lad of 10, to po after the ctittle each night and drive them home to be milked. A year or two fijtro the boy found « hawk's nest. After killing the old birds ho took the young' ones home .iJitJ raised one as a"pet. Since then the pet hawk lias been the companion of the boy and has accompanied him •when lie went after the cows eaoli evening 1 . A short time ago the boy hurt his foot, and that evening- was not able to go after the cows. At tlie usual time for going; after the herd there was no one who could go, and Hie cows came trooping in only n few minutes late. Not one was missing 1 , and frying along in the rear of the ]ierc7, was the pet hawk. The next evening 1 the hawk again started out alone after the cows. This time he was watched, and his plaji of operations learned. The bird first drove the. cows together by assailing 1 each straggler separately. Then the entire drove was started'towards home. • If a cow loitered the hawk ilew a.t her, pecked at her Ixiok and beat her with his wings. This courso was fully as effective in making the bovine move ns would be V.ie barking of a dog. When nil the cows were in motion nnd moving' along at aproper ga.itthe ha.wlcperched himself on the horn of the rear one nnd calmly watched the progress of his charges. Since then the hawk has been sent after the cows each evening, and the boy has lost a job. The fame of the bird has • spread, 'nnd neighbors for miles around have gone to see the hawk drive the cattle.

Severn! months ago, while the Currant case* w:is the one absorbing- topic of publtc interest, tiny Miss Kthel heard her mother r-jad several of (he lengthy newspaper reports. Since then the subject has not been mentioned until one day lost week, when, for the purpose of testing her memory, rhe matter was recalled. She at once went over the entire subject, using language almost identical with that of the newspaper articles. Her answers to questions often took the form of a qtiolation of entire sentences, and these she repeated perfect^' after the lapse of so many months without, perhaps, understanding their menning. Recently her wonderful memory was put to a .severe- test at a concert recital IB Oakland. After the performancesbe was oskcd if she remembered a certain recitation on ihe programme remarkable alike for its length nnd peculiar phrasing. She bad never heard it before, but with a confident smile and a certain eiiclian ting carelessness of manner, she rpcitcil the entire piece without a single break. It will be interesting to note as this child grows ckler whether her memory broadens with age, or whether, as in the case of (he famous Italian boy mathematician, it lapses altogether and leaves her more stupid than the veriest infant.

There is no uiore remarkable wooden bridge in the world than the one which crosses Ceiritos creek on tlie stage, road between Sa'a Mat«o and Pescadero, u few miles north of San Grcgario, Gi), This peculiar and pitturesque structure is built entirely of the trunks of native redwood trees, and is in a fair state of preservation. The moststriking tliir.g about the appearance of this bridge, says the Pan Fra.ncisco Call, is its enormous height. The center span crosses the creek 00 feet, above the water. It is not known who the engineers were that, built the bridge nor just what not Jook r,ne ieast bit out of place, m fact, it rather blends into the landscape. It doe,s not present a very beautiful appearance nor does it look grotesque. A'Small Colt. There is n young colt in Carmel, Pa^ belonging to W. C.
