Then, having corked the bottle lightly, he threw it into the sea. Thirteen months after, a man walking along th'e coast of Sweden noticed a curious object : bobbing up and down in the sea. With his stick he soon brought It ashore, and found that it was a glass bottle. It was BO covered with sea weeds and tiny barnacles that he had some difficulty, at first, in making out what it was. Then he caught sight o'f the paper inside. Opening the bottle he took from it the note Mr. McCoy had written thirteen months before. He hastened to send It to the given address, and Mr. McCoy soon received his note and the soda-water bottle.back again, after their many months of travel. The strange part of the story is, however, that the seaweeds that were growing on the bottle were of a kind known to grow only In the "warm waters of the tropics. .Tho bottle, in journeying from the coasfof Newfoundland to the coast of Sweden, had, without doubt, been drifting with some current that had carried it into the southern seas. There is a great current In the North Atlantic ocean, called the North Atlantic eddy. The bottle must have drifted Into this eddy, which would have carried it across the Atlantic to the coast of Spain, then down by the northwest coast of Africa, almost to the equator, thence back again across the ocean to South America. It must then have drifted slowly northward, past Newfoundland once more, and across the ocean for a third time, when it was carried into the North sea, and at last landed in Sweden.

The sperm whale, or cachalot, like all of its class, has teeth only in the lower jaw, and this Jaw is much shorter than the upper one, which is prolonged abnormally by a great mass of flesh called "the bunch" by sailors. -The only support which the bunch has is a bony ridge running along the, upper part of the back of the head, and it is in the hollow in front of the bunch that the yaluable fatty substance called spermaceti is found. This fatty material makes ithe sperm?whale,.in one respect, more Valuable than any other species, for one barrel of the oil taken from this substance In the head is worth three bar- : rels of the oil taken from any other kind of whales. The sperm'whale can always'be recognized by the nature of its epout, which It- throws up in a sin~~ gle'Jet of water. Other whales throw up two high-arching jets which form a sort of V-shaped spouting. The bulls of the sperm breed are much more valuable from a commercial standpoint than thei cows. The females yield comparatively little head matter and oil; while the males are usually very abundant in fatty head matter, and therefore whalers usually keep a lookout •for the bulls, although they are by far the fiercest and most troublesome ene- , miee to deal. with. Sperm whales are T 7tound"~ln~almost"every-part-ofrthe seas,except the Polar ocean. They seem to find the warmer seas more congenial, it is in and around .the tropical :• waters that the sperm whale is oftenest taken. Voracious by nature, these mighty inhabitants of the deep feed on cuttlefish, rock cod, and many other large fish, Cnrlovift Cane of Piieudo-Memory. Dr. Arnold Pick tells of a man who had chronic attacks of pseudo-memory. Whenever he was present at a social gathering, or visited any place that was new-to : him r the-incldent—wlth-all-its attcndant (Circumstances, appeared so fnmiliar ihat he vas convinced of having received the same impressions before, of''having been surrounded with the same objects, under the snthe conditions of weather, etc. If he undertook any new occupation, he seemed to have gone through it at some previous time and under similar, conditions. The feeling sometimes appeared at the time, sometimes at the. end of a few hours, and sometimes not until the next day, but always with great distinctness. In this case an explanation may perhaps be found in the man's possession of a • very powerful imagination, which, being constantly exercised on a number of possible situation, led to the recognition afterwards of similarities In actual experience. The Blind hectic. A writer In Lippiifcott's Magazine says: "Some beetles have the homing sense highly developed; thus in the Mammoth Cave the blind beetle (Ade- lops) has Us particular home, and will always return to it when it is set free at' considerable distances away. .Notwithstanding the /act that these beetles^ are blind and that continuous darkness reigns in this Immense cavern, they have periods of rest corresponding with the diurnal rest-periods of "Kindred species living in the light; hence it Is an easy matter to study their habits at home and abroad. I have frequently marked these' beetles and then freed them some distance away from their domiciles; they hid themselves at ,once beneath some stone or clod of clay, but as soon as they recovered from the fright incldent~to~thelr-cap-- ture, they would start towards home, and would not stop, If left unmolested, until- they arrived at their particular and Individual abodes. A Fireproof Tree. The wonderfuladaptability organism can show to an apparently hostile environment ia well known to naturalists. A remarkable case in point comes from Columbia, South America, in what, is known there as a fireproof tree. Here a large part of the country Is covered with interminable llanos, or plains, which furnish the grass upon which vast,herds of cattle graze. As there is but" a very short rainy season, during which the grass..grows.the herders set fire to the remains of last year's growth as soon as the rainy season approaches, so that nothing remaining of the old will prevent the new growth of grass from springing up. On these plains the only other specie^ of vegetable growth Is what !# known as the ehaparro tree, all other forms being killed by these fires. The secret of the fire resisting qualities of this tree lies In the bark, which covers It like a skin. In no tree has the bark any organic function In Itself, merely serving a protective purpose. In .the chaparro, however, the outer bark to the thickness of half an inch Is arranged in loose layers, and becomes thickened and modified to euch.a degree .that the protection to ordinary dangers Is extended to the case of fire. ' In addition to being practically fireproof, this arrangement of the looae layers renders It a non-conductor" of heat, and, therefore, the delicate inner tissues 'of the -tree remain uncharred during the scorching but brief onslaught of the prairie fires. A Rare and Curious Bible. The most curious, as well as one of the rarest books, known to collectors, Is the edition of the "Vulgate," issued by Pope Slxtus V, some time between 1585 and 15^90. The book; as Disraeli describes It, "fairly swarmed with errata;" so numerous were they that a number., of printer paper slips containing the proper, words were pasted over the blunders, and this-device proving ineffectual, on account of the immense number of mistakes, as many of the copies as could be found were called In and destroyed. Only a few remain and the book with its paper patches commands an extremely high price. A Bottle That Traveled. On September 28, 1895, a party of tourists, coming back from a trip off the Newfoundland coast, were talking •about the various streams and currents of the ocean. They were.still at aea relates the Great Rouad WorJ<J. *^T^W -, • ' _ -. f -rf JF _ J'» The BplUorg of Maduguscar. In Madagascar there is one species of spider, whose bite Is said to be always fatal. 'It Is of a glossy black, with a red spot on the abcjomen, and Is globular in shape, being about the sjze of a small marble. It does not hesltatejp attack human beings. On this interesting island there are many brilliantly-colored fcplders. Some of them are large enough to cover a dinner plate, and they spin immense geometric webs across streams and roads, which .are anchored by cords so strpng that an effort is required to break them. } I'rousure of the Air Ship. • We know, because we can ascertain directly, that 30 cubic Inches of mercury weigh close upon 15 pounds avoirdupois, and therefore we say that, under normal conditions, the pressure of the atmosphere is 15 pounds on^every square. inch. If, however, Instead of taking' such a tiny space on a square Inch for our base, we adopt some larger area, the facts at once begin to assume gigantic proportions. Thus, on a square foot the weight of the air is a little short*of a ton; on a square yard It exceeds 8% tons, and on a square of H, COME you from • the Indies, and, soldier, can you tell Aught of the gallant 90th, and ; who are eafc and well?

"Oh, I've come from the Indies, I've Just come from the war, And well I know .the 90th, and gallant lads they are; From colonel down, to rank and file, I know my comrades well, And news I brought for you, mother, your Robert made me tell." "And do you know my Robert now! oh, tell me, tell me true— O soldier, tell me word for word all that lie said to you! His very words—my own >>oy's words— , O tell me every One! Tou little know how "dear to his old mother Is my son!" "Through Havelock's fights and marches the 90th were there; •In all the gallant 90th did, your Robert did his share: Twice he went into Lucknow, untouched by steel or ball; And you'may bless your God, old damo, That brought him safe through all." ' . "Oh. thanks unto the living God that heard his mother's prayer, The widow's cry that rose on high her only son to spare!

You know, don't you, grandpa," she cried, coaxlngly. "Dear me! Of course! To be sure!" replied grandpa emphatically, and with a laugh in his eye. "Why, now I think of, it, Daisy, I do believe I did have a valentine—and her name 'was Polly!" "Did you send her pretty things, like this?" • ' . . • "Not so pretty as that, maybe,"/ said grandpa. . "I remember one year, when I was about ten years old, there was a great to-do in our neighborhood sending valentines. Awful things they were, too! Fit to scare the dogs. I couldn't get money enuogh to buy one, so I set about making one. I got eome birch-bark, smooth and soft as silk, cut it out In heart-shaped leaves" and on each leaf printed some astonishing verses. Then t tied them together with some green and red 'thrums' left over from mother's woven counterpane. 'It was a mile to Polly's house, through the woods, too. But there was a bright moon and I plucked up courage and started off In secret. "After many scares, and hearing in my mind all the wild animals that ever came out of Noah's ark, I got to Polly's house, tied my valentine on the door- latch, pounded the Moor and ran into the pig-house. "I wasn't going home till I had heard what Polly would say. I had forgotten Jupiter. I don't know why I should, either, for he had driven me over the stone wall into the woods many a time on my way to school. Jupiter waa the old gander, and fifty years old, I should think, from his temper. • "He was big and strong and his neck rd with JnpJtcr hanging to ray log like nn ugly dog and drubbing me with his huge wings, "Away I went around the pig-hou?e, shouting: 'Tftke him off! Take him off!' "Out ran Polly's father with his cane, Polly's mother with the pudding-stick right out of the hot kettle, and little Polly with the hemlock broom, Just as I dashed around the corner. They all thrust at Jupiter together. The cane missed him altogether, a hit of hot pud-, ding hit me In the eye and Polly's broom came down — spank on the top of my head! It knocked my hat off and made me see stars. That was too much. Bareheaded I ran for home, still shouting, with the three after me. "How the woods echoed! But Juptter and I soon left them far behind In the race, and It was not till I got nearly half-way home that I jerked my bruised leg free and. the great beak slipped off with a loud snap, "I left Jupiter calling in clear, high notes In the midst of the woods for his mate. T.hat was his last race, for an old fox that had her den up under the 'Dundee' heard him, too, and walked oft with him that night ami we children <vere not sorry. "But" Polly's sharp eyes discovered the valentine In spite' of the racket, and she will show It to you some day if you ask 'her." "It wasn't grandma!" shouted Daisy, In ecstasy, "It couldn't be grandma, could It,' now?" "' "Why not?" said grandpa, with a twinkle, as foe pulled his black silk cdp farther over his bald head.— Christine Stephens In Youths' Companion. Fatal Result of n Carious Custom. One of the many superstitions still believed by the peasant population of Russia Is that on the occasion of a marriage the'happiness of the newly- wedded couple is not assured unless the parents of the contracting parties are soaked with water "from head to foot. When.the marriage takes place In the ^umnier_thia_ia_easily_accomplish.ed_by_ ducking the fathers and mothers-in- law in the nearest river, but in the winter they are laid on the ground and rolled in the frozen snow. The observance of this curious custom has just resulted fatally In the village of Sysertsky, in the Upha province. In this case the wedding guests were all drunk, as is usual In "Russia on these occasions, and instead of simply rolling the father of the bride in the snow, they brought water out of the house, and in a temperature of-'some ten degrees below zero Fahrenheit", threw a bucketful over him. The unfortunate man.was only half dressed, and. received such a shock that he died within a week. It Is said that this sad event has done more to dispel the popular belief in THE GRMT SOOTH I Gflppc JM.A.GKEO, RADICALLY CURES CATARRH It clears the head of foul mucon!); heals the sores and ulcers of the head and .throat; sweetens the breath, and perfectly restores the senses of the taste, smell and hearing.

Mackey of South Carolina was selected by .the American colony to deliver a Fourth of July ora- tlcn at a banquet given In honor of the day. It was attended by all the foreign consuls, and among them was the consul-general of Austria-Hungary, who •furnished for Judge Mackey's address the following anecdote and vouched for its authenticity: A number of Americans residing' in Vienna in the year 1810 united to .celebrate Washington's birthday, and invited the. Emperor Francis of Austria to honor the occasion by his presence.

BROUGHT BACK FROM THE GRAVB. Last November Mr. Joseph James", painter, of 325 W. Pearl SJ., Indianapolis, Ind., waa at death's door with quick consumption. . Wasted to a skeleton; his lungs a mass of ulceration; his death was hourly awaited by his doctor and family. He was kept in a constant stupor with'opium, A friend, thinking, to relieve his terrible cough, gave him a bottle of Brazilian Balm. Seeing its wonderful'€ffect,"the doctor advised its continued use. Mr. James: soon after dismissed his doctor, and depended on the Balm alone. His recovery was rapid and complete, and in February he returned to work. His lungs are sound, and his weight greater than at any time in his life. His recovery is regarded as almost a miracle. - The fat undertaker, Who plants by tlie acre, Poor victims of cough nud cold, Is sighing and crying, For we've all stopped dying Since Brazilian Balm was sold.

R., savs. "I had suffered with catarrh for 36 years and regarded my case as hopeless. One day ^L saw the -testimonial of Geo. H. Hearn in a Brazilian Balm circular. Hearn was the engineer on my train dnd I knew his case was desperate.: I talked with Hearn and his cure gave me hope. I began the use of the Balm at once. There was not much change for the first two months but then I began to improve and in six months, to my inexpressible satisfaction, I .was entirely cured.'.' COMMA BACILLUS. • In consumption beware of cough mixtures and prescriptions that contain opium. Opium paralizes the nerves, and gives the comma bacillus a good chance to destroy the lungs. It is always-fatal.—Brazilian_Balm_doe3 r riot contain a trace of any opiate, but stimulates the nerves with new life and power, destroys the microbe, and restores all that is left of the diseased lungs to a sound and healthy state which no other "remedy has ever been known to accomplish. than all men who have ever lived; I am a king by trade." and "one of the number, Mr. MeOoy, 10% feet sslda It Is 100 tons. was a yard long, it seemed to me.

When Sir John Franklin was in his, twelfth year he saw the sea for the first time, and there and then made up his mind to be a sailor. Although Tus parents begged of him to choose another calling, he would not give way, and in the long run entered the navy. But be never lost' touch with home, or ceased to think of the dear ones there. When, in 1808, the failure of his brother's bank- caused his family some distress, John not only accepted without a murmur the stoppage of his allowance from home, but also saved the sum of £5 out of the paltry pittance of 'his middy's pay, and sent it to help the old folk. It was a trifle, no doubt, but the spirit in which the thing waa done counted for more than the money. A Bemarkable Cure. Mr. Alexander Moore, a'reliable business man, of 1230 S. 13th St., Philadelphia, Pa., says: "I contracted a -violent cold which settled all over me. The pain in my chest and side was excruciating. The doctor gave me medicine and blistered my side, but I only grew worse." Then you.gave me a bottle of Brazilian Balm. I had little or no faith in it, but decided to try it. I took 3 or 4 good doses before bed time, And rubbed it well over my blistered side. That night I slept like a top—my first good rest for over'a week—and awoke in the morning cured.' Brazilian Balm is simply invaluable." Pneumonia Cured. Mrs. A. J. Lawrence, of Beaver, Pa., says: "Brazilian Balm brought me out of a severe attack of pneumonia in splendid shape. It is a wonderful remedy for coughs and lung troubles. Also, for outward use, for burns, cold-sores, aud chapped bauds and face, it cures like magic. It is invaluable in the family." A Blessing For the Ladies. Thousands of ladies are using Brazil-. Ian Balm. For soreness, 1 pain, bearing down and many kinds of trouble, it "acts like a charm. A 50 cent or dollar bottle often does more good in one week than any other remedy does in months.- It goes right to the spot, removing all inflammation. Mrs. Geo. W. Roberts, of Wilmington,'Del., says, "A strong solution of Brazilian Balm and. warm water used as an injection has done me more good than all the remedies and prescrip- - tions I eyer tried," Grippe Cured. "Last winter I had a bad cold and severe cough. I was lame in every joint -and-jnuseJe, I .was sick, and felt aa though I was conjingdown with typhoid fever. It was no doubt a bad case of grippe. Mr. E. P. Budge gave me a bottle of Brazilian Balm, saying, he was sure it would help me. The relief was almost instantaneous.' It quickly stopped my cough and took the grippe with all the pains and soreness out of my system.' I gave the balance of the 50-cent bottle to Mrs. Bishop Wiley for her daughter.
