We may, says Prof. Lewes, live for days without giving bur stomach any-work to do, the liver may tieasa,action for sacral days before death ensues, but it is impossible to survive for the sarub length of time if the functions of the skin are entirely stopped. Indeed, tho p'rofessor cites the case of a child which, being gilded all over to pose as a statue, died in a few houra The sudoriferous ducts, of which there are about 3,500 to the square inch of skin, perform the important function of throwing off the moisture produced during the combustion of waste tissue by tho oxygen of the blood, and secrete about twenty, three i ounces of perspiration in the twenty-four hours, which evaporates without producing any sensible moisture} of the skin. This throwing off the perspiration and its evaporation is a beautiful natural contrivance for rejrulating the temperature of tho body, as the conversion of the perspiration into vapor renders latent an enormous utnount of heat, 'which, being principally derived from the body, keeps it,in a state of comparative coolness. A bath heated to' 120 degrees Fah. is almost unbearable, but one may be exposed for some time to a tempera* ure of 325 degrees Fah., in. an oven. Ihe perspiration keeps the body C ° 0l fe Tlle twent y-three ounces of perspiration secreted daily contains about one ounce of solid matter, which is left behind 'on evaporation. Apart from this there are sebacous glands which secrete oily and resinous matters, of which the wax in the ear is a type; these, mixing with the solid matter and dirt adhering to the skin, form a compound which tends to clog- the pores of the skin, and it is the removal of this,, by. the morning tub and rough towels, which is responsible for the refreshing- influence of the bath. .. -__ .. . ,i app-e&fs theftf «re«S r» fteited ia the fiscal tear ettding .ttiftfi patents: J.dftO applications tot deslgfis; 108 applications 'fo* reissue^ 2 f 193 caveats; )«??0 applications for trade ttiarks; and 368 applications for labels.

The overcheck bit is shown by itself under the horse's head. This A traveling mountain is found at tho cascades of the Columbia. It is a triple peaked mass of dark brown basalt, six or eight miles in length where it fronts the river, and rises to the height of almost 2,000 feet above the Water. That it is in motion is the last thought that would be likely to suggest itself to the mind of any one passing it, yet it is a Well-established fact that this entire mountain is moving slowly but steadily down to the river, as if it had a deliberate purpose some timo m the future to dam the Columbia and form a great'lake from the Cascades to the Dalles. In its forward and downward movement the forest along tho base of the ridge has become submerged in the river. Large tree stumps can be seen standing dead in the water on this shore. The railway engineers and brakemen flhd that the line of railway that skirts the foot of the mountain is being continually forced out of place. At certain points the pei-munant way and rails have'been pushed eight or ten feet out of line in a few years. Geologists attribute this strange phenomenon to the 'fact that the basalt, which constitutes the bulk of the mountain, rests on a substratum of conglomerate or of soft standstone which the deep, swift current of the mighty river is constantly wearing away, or that this softer subrock is of itself yielding at great depths to the enormous weight of the harder mineral above.—Goldthwait's Geographical Magazine. THE IMPROVED CHECK .HEm. support for an overdraw check is designed to prevent the check rein from wearing or rubbing against the head of the horse, and the winker stay is" BO attached that the blinds or winkers may be readily, adjusted at any desired angle to the animal's head. The support consists of a face, cross bar of leather, or metal and leather, haying felt on its inner side and resting on the animal's face, whereat is held by means of two side bars, preferably by spring steel, leather covered. The bars are curved so as not to touch the animal's face, and their upper ends are attached to the crown strap of .the bridle, which mivy also be of felt or similar material on its under side. There are loops or socket's, each, with rollers, on the' side bars, through which pass the rearwardjy extending members of the overdraw check, ren° dering it very sensitive to every movement of the horse's head. "The winker stay consists of .a rod with a .shank adjustal&lo by a set screw in a slide- way in the central portion of the face bar, the rod having, in its ends sockets in which the wires constituting the frames of the winkers are conveniently adjustable.

I have lived for days and.weeks ihali kihtis -of:American homes, and 1 say unhesitatingly that family affection is- the\deepest, "best and most noticeable thing in all that bigjland. Mne-tenths of ihe profes- sioaal men of the country have como from simple homes, -where interests are equal atid commoh-^-cqual and common, because, no matter how rich the father and' mother, the children have, as a rule no fortune till tho death of the parents, and nothing then , by right, but only' by the good will of the giver. How the American, mother hates sending her boy away to school! I remember talking to one of the most fashionable and beautiful women in New York ftbout Her son, and with tears in her eyes she feared for his morals and his habits, for tho loss of his deep affection for her and for his sister. She was probably wrong; would probably, if left alone, permit the boy to become effeminate; but it was an instance of the sweot friendliness and love found in Americ.x home lifo. The dinner table of aa American family is, as a rule, very informal; it has seldom more than two cqurses; wino is seldom soen, save in th larger cities, and then only among the wealthier classes. Iho most delightful hospitality in the United States is to bo found at the military posts. Here you have tho sublimation of simple manners, cordiality arid dignified enjoyment. In 1885^ and 18861 stayed for some time at Fort Leavonworth, Kan. and at tho Presidio at Sail Francisco; and I had ' this year a hearty invitation from Old Point Comfort and Fort Sully, S. D., and twice I have been to West Point. No matter what an officer of the American army may bo worth privately, at the military post he lives without ostentation—indeed, as simply as all his brother officers—as even a sub-liouten- ant might. They have their little tea parties, their germans and their phar. torn dances in the post ballroom, and they grow to be ad like each other a;; the officers and their families of tho I'rench garrison, where each man's income is' known and the cost of hospitality is borne by tho mess, for which the government provides. Here, I repeat, at these military posts is all that is finest,'prettiest, most commendable in social life in America. And my cynical brother Britisher, who joys in putting spokes in the American wheel, as it were, would do well not to mistake what he sees in big hotels, as he travels, for American life and people—not any more than he would mistake Harn- enden races for Sandown.

A Chinese custom is the throwing Into the ocean of thousands of pieces of paper when" friends are about to sail away. Each piece bears written on it a prayer.

There is treasure to tho amount of $30,000,000 stored away in gold, for the purpose of conducting the early stages of a campaign on basis. In Berlin, for some reason, bicycles are thoroughly out of favor with tho populace in general and the police in particular. Thoro are plenty of bicyclists, but thoy have to fix a third wheel to their machines in order to dodge the police regulations regarding a two-wheeled machine. The third wheel is small and is only used to get around the city ordinance against bicycles. Japanese Politeness. Lady—Tho foet of tho ladies of your country nre compressed, 1 believe.

ASSIST NATURE a little now and then in removing- offending- matter from the stomach and bowels and you thereby avoid a multitude of distressing- derangements ami diseases, and will have less frequent need of your doctor's service. Of all known agents for this purpose, Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets are the best. Once used, they are always In fnvor. Their secondary effect is to keep the bowels open and regular, not to further constipate, as is the case with --.-.-• ^ Hence, their great populaiity with sufferers from habitual constipation piles and their attendant discomfort and • manifold derangements.. The."Pellets" ore purely vegetable and perfectly harmless in any condition of the system. No care is' required while using them;-they do not interfere with the diet,- habits or occupa- tiqiu,-aiid produce no pain, griping or shock to the system. They act in a wild, easy and natural way and there is no reaction after, ward. Their help lasts. The Pellets cure biliousness, sick and bilious headache, dizziness, costiveness, or constipation, sour stomach, loss of appetite , coated tongue, indigestion, or dyspepsia, .windy belchings, '•heartburn," pain and distress after eating, and kindred derangements of the liver, stomach and bowels. In proof of their superior excellence, it can be truthfully said, that they are always adopted as a household remedy after the •first trial. Put tip in sealed, glass vials, therefore always fresh ' and reliable. One little "Pellet" is a laxative, two are mildy cathartic. As a "dinner pill," to promote digestion, or to vejieve distress from oyer- 'eating, take one after dinner. They are tmy, sugar-coated granules; any child will readily take them. ' .
