The clotulo have covered the stars like a pall, and there is a howling wind which drowns all other sounds. The pigmy vessel makes ready and puts to sea. It rushes along as swift as the wind and as silent as a calm. Big waves sometimes sweep over it from end to end as it plunges through the darkness, but they are not heeded. Small as it is, it is stanchly built and can stand the strain of storm as well as its adversary. All men save one are snugly shut inside, tending the flying engine and preparing the missile of destruction. This is a strange bolt, shaped like a cigar, over ten feet in length, and the crew place it in the bow tube. The man on deck stands behind a little iron tower which shields him from the shock of the waves, and there he steers the boat. In the darkness they seek their adversary determinedly, and with deadly purpose, since they are the protectors of their native land. The boat searches for a time in vain, for the big ship has covered all lights and is lying like a sleeping monster upon the waves, awaiting morning to renew the havoc. Perhaps if the ship remained thus the little boat would never find her: but "Goliath" becomes uneasy: he fours "David" will make an attack, so he has determined to watch. A dazzling cone of white light suddenly starts from a 'point in the darkness and broadens upon the water. Slowly it sweeps about over the sea in circling arcs. All at once the little boat is bathed in a brilliant, blinding glare. The monster's eye finds it: But in finding the enemy the battle ship has disclosed itself, and the dauntless little adversarv steams straight forward at utmost speed. Streaks of flame are now shooting from under the white light, whilo the rattling reports of rifles and machine guns rise sharply above the wind's roar. Shot and small shell are falling about like hail upon the water;, but the monster cannot keep the range of the onrushiug boat, and the missiles fly wide of the mark. Suddenly the great ship looms up- tall, long, shadowy, overpowering. It is not far off —almost near enough to be attacked. Yet a little closer, and the intrepid pigmy, still unharmed, slows and steadies, with that ominous black tube pointing toward the monster's blazing side. Shots are falling upon the boat, and the man who was steering has taken refuge in his iron tower; but inside there is a wheel, and he can steer as well as before, for around him on a level with his eyes are little slits through which he can see. Now seconds are if the brave little craft is to destruction. The moment has conie'. . A lever is pulled, and from that Dlack tube comes a short, hoarse roar. At once the little boat begins to turn, ready to escape with the speed of the wind. But before the boat can turn a dull, heavy shock bus jarred the sea. A gigantic column of white water rushes upward toward the black clouds. In it the tall masts of the monster ship seem to sway about and clash together. The banging of the guns is sharply succeeded by cries of human terror. The mass of water falls back into the sea with a roaring crash and scatters over the waves in great wisps of gliste.n- ing foam. The wind, sweeping on again, forms new waves over the disturbed water. The monster ship has disappeared —the Goliath of the deep is conquered by his pigmy antagonist.— John M.

HOW "ZV.RO" WAS ADOPTED. precious escape The Wonderful Progr«M In tlie Education of the Deaf and Dumb—The Curriculum of the Natlonul College Home of the Work Done Very little is known about the ancient treatment of the deaf, but Aristotle is credited with saying somewhere in his musty works that the deaf are wholly incapable of receiving intellectual instruction. History tells us, however, that deafness was sometimes deemed a visitation of divine wrath, and that the poor victim was frequently destroyed to save the family honor, or was classed with the idiotic or insane and treated as an outcast. This opinion must have prevailed many centuries, for it was within the last 150 years that it was discovered that the deaf were capable of | receiving intellectual instruction. A coll ego for deaf mutes Afas founded in the city of Washington about twenty- six years ago to combat the popular prejudice. The college grew and thrived. Few people know anything about the National Deaf Muto college, or the Columbian Institution for the Deaf and Dumb, as it is known officially, at Kendall Green, Washington. A man who, had he lived 1,000 years ago, might have been rousted because he could neither hear nor speak today studies moral philosophy, the calculus and ancient and modern languages, and graduates from a college with a degree. THE COLLEGE. The Columbia institution was incorporated in 1857, and has since then been sustained by congress as an institution where deaf mute children living in the District of Columbia and children of soldiers and sailors should receive free education. Ample provision is also made for deaf mutes from the states and territories, who have not the means of defraying the expenses of tuition, which amount to $350 a year. The institution continued for seven years as an ordinary high school, but in 1864 it was decided to organize a collegiate department, and congress passed an act authorizing the institution to confer collegiate degrees. The institution was then divided into two departments, the school and the National Deaf Mute college. In one of his annual reports Dr. Edward M. Gallaudet, the president of the college, says: "The object of the directors in establishing a school of this grade, thus taking a step unprecedented in the history of deaf mute instruction, was in part to prove what had been doubted by some, that persons deprived of hearing and speech could, in spite of their disability, engage successfully in the advanced studies pursued in colleges for the hearing. The more important end in view, ho°vover, was to afcord to a class of persons in the community, already numerous and increasing steadily with the population, an opportunity to secure the advantages of a rigid and thorough course of intellectual training in the higher walks of literature and the liberal arts." The best evidence of the success of the movement can be found in this paragraph from the annual report of 1887, which tells what pursuits some of the graduates followed: WHERE THE GRADUATES GO. "Fifty who have gone out from the college have been engaged in teaching, ono has entered the ministry, three have become editors and publishers of newspapers, three others have taken positions j—T .,**4.*U 4 j-iiii'iinlitnn llfl.Vrt fiYl- Discovered, a* Be Thought, the Extreme at Cold and Named It. "Zero" is the part of every thermometer that is most watched and dreaded in this changeable climate of ours. The word is from the Spanish, and means empty, hence nothing. It was first used on a thermometer in 1709 by a Prussian merchant named Fahrenheit. From a boy lie was a close observer of nature, and when only 19 years old, in the remarkably cold winter of 1709, he experimented by putting snow and salt together and noticed that it produced a degree of cold equal to the coldest day of the year. And that day was the coldest day that the oldest inhabitant could remember. Gabriel was the more struck with the coincidence of his little scientific discovery, and hastily concluded that he hac 1 found the lowest degree of temperature known in the-world, either natural or artificial. He called the degree zero, and con structed a thermometer, or rude weathei glass, with a scale graduating up from zero to boiling point, which he nuin bered 212, and the freezing point 82, be cause, as he thought, mercury contracte the thirty-second of its volume o» beinp cooled down from the temperature o freezing water to zero, and expandec one hundred and eightieth on bein heated from the freezing to the boilin point. Time showed that the arrangement instead of being truly scientific was as arbitrary as the division of the Bible into verses and chapters; and these two points no more represented the real extremes of temperature than from. "Dan to Beersheba" expressed the exact extremes of Palestine. But Fahrenheit's thermometer had been widely adopted, with its inconvenient scale, and none thought of any better until his name became an authority, for Fahrenheit finally aban- Teachers' Department. for this Department are earnestly solicited Iroir the teachers.

To secure order a systematic system of school tactics must be adopted by every teacher. A school with such a system is like an army with a plan, of moving. The undisciplined school is a thing of the past. It, with the rod and staff will soon be relics of a semi- barbarous age in intellectual advancement. Pupils should be carefully trained in school tactics the very first moment of the iirst day of school. The too common fault with tactics is that they are not significant. Principles should determine the movements •mil nrrlm-s. Children should be able The follbwiiig may be suggestive; and ufflcient in number to move any chool: 1, arrange desks; 2, ready- or ttention; S, rise; 4, march; 5. sit.

Women who find it difficult to spare the time and strength at the dressmaker's for the fitting and trying on of two or three gowns a season comment sometimes upon the trouble their more fashionable sisters must take who own dresses by scores. In point of fact the latter have an easier time getting twenty than the former three. Most wealthy and dressy women have at their dressmaker's a gown form of themselves, which is a plaster of pans cast taken from life. Every detail of trie corseted and bodiced figure to the waist line is accurately reproduced, and this half body is then mounted upon a skirt form of the same height as the customer. Madame or mademoiselle, as the case may be, then spends a single morning with her dressmaker choosing fabrics, studying effects, indicating occasions for which gowns -will be needed and the like to accomplish the season's wardrobe.

It is u bushy shrub, six to ten feet high, with large leaves near the ends of the branches. The articles prepared for commerce come from the roots or tubers, which are large and like turnips, but frequently weighing as high as thirty pounds. They contain a milky auice rich in starch, but also rich m hydro- cyanic acid, which makes the juice—in its natural state-a very deadly poison. The acid is driven out by heat and the remainder of the juice is extracted by boiling. The grated root makes what is known in the tropics as cassava or cas- eava bread, and is used for food. The starch, extracted, is exported as Brazilian arrowroot, and tapioca is made from it by a heating process which bursts the starch granules and causes some chemical changes.—Good Housekeeping. _ An Open Question.

Congress has been liberal with the institution. In 1881 a fine gymnasium was completed, which cost $14,600. Most of the students in the college are graduates of the lower department of the institution, but not a few received their early education in separate local schools. The entire curriculum, including an introductory year, embraces a period of five years. Candidates for admission to the introductory class are examined in these subjects: The command of English as shown in oral or finger-spelled conversation; in rendering at sight paragraphs selected from school books and from newspapers; in extemporaneous English composition; arithmetic; history of the United States; history of England to the beginning of the reign of Henry VII; political geography; physical geography, and ele- [ ments of natural philosophy. The curriculum of the college is about the same as that of any other college. It includes mathematics, English, Latin, Greek, history, zoology, botany, chemistry, physics, physiology, French, German, logic, mental and moral science and political philosophy. The degrees which the college has conferred are: Bachelor of arts, bachelor of science, bachelor of philosophy, master of arts, master of science and doctor of philosophy.—New York Sun,. doned trade and gave himself up to science. Then habit made people cling to the established scale, as habit made the English cling to the old system of cumbrous fractional money. The three countries which use^Pahren- heit are England, Holland and America. Russia and Germany use Baumer's thermometer, in which the boiling point is counted 80 degs. above the freezing point. France uses the centigrade thermometer, so called because it makes the boiling point 100 degs. from freezing point. On many accounts the centigrade system is the best, and the triumph of convenience will be attained v>hen zero is made the freezing point, and when the boiling point is put 100 or 1,000 degs. from it, and all the sub-divisions are fixed decimally. If Fahrenheit had done this at first, or even if he had made it one of his many improvements after the public adopted his error, the luck of opportunity, which waa really his, would have secured to his invention the p;d:ronage of the world. —New York "World.
