SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY I The body of a colossal rhinoceros was recently found in Siberia a country most ich in gigantic fossils Like the moth washed ashore by the Lena River n 1799 it is remarkably well preserved he unbroken and covered with long hair After a cruise of a few months in the South Pacific ocean a French war was recently found to have specimens of living coral growing upon hull which interesting discovery has thrown some light on the question of the rapidity of of corals The evidence tends to show that the vessel on passing a reef of the Islands against which it rubbed had picked up a young which adhered to the sheathing of the ship and grew to the size and weight it had when diameter of nine and a weight of two and one-half nine weeks An Australian correspondent furnishes proof of the provident and instinct of bees Last year the drought in South Wales was of long duration and the denizens of the apiaries suffered much from it This year the bees lave made provision against a similar emergency by a large number of the external cells in every hiye with pure water instead of honey It is believed hat the instinct of the insects leads them to anticipate a hot summer and to vide against it By means of pumps it is secure a vacuum so nearly perfect that a given will contain not more than the of its normal quantity of air The Journal de edited by M d'Almeida rates this During the siege of Paris by the German armies in M d'Almeida took a prominent part in certain attempts to re-establish telegraphic tion between Paris and the provinces using the river Seine as a conductor This suggestion originated with M bonze of galvanometer who was after the war created a chevalier for his suggestion It was proposed to send powerful currents into the river Seine from batteries at the nearest available point outside the German lines and to receive in delicate galvanometers from the river such a portion of these currents as might not have leaked into the earth After some preliminary ex- it was decided to make the attempt and accordingly on Dee 17 1870 d'Almeida was despatched by balloon in order to try to establish this novel mode of wires The balloon descended after sundry perils in the Arcadian solitudes of pagne outside the Prussian lines Thence he proceeded to Bavre where he was compelled to wait for the arrival of atus from England The instruments were conveyed to Poissy where M meida arrived on Jan Ice in the river now interfered and ere the attempt at made the armistice was proclaimed It was too late and the world missed a famous exploit from among those which made the siege of Paris notable beyond all other sieges of history A late novel application of electricity is the construction of a soldering iron in which a piece of platinum is heated by the electric current and employed to fuse any kind of solder A new use for photography in tion with the higher arts has been found in the discovery that it may be relied upon to detect any restoration or ing with old paintings On recently ex- the first proof of a well-known Madonna in the British National lery photographer observed a disfiguring blur over tha forehead No such blur was discernible in the original except upon close inspection with the aid of a magnifying glass The microscopic ex- amination showed that the restorer had repaired some casual damage with a skill that reproduced the color and the texture of the painter but he had not used the same pigments and this was instantly detected by the subtle chemistry of light investigations have shown the depth of the ocean between latitudes sixty degrees north and sixty degrees south to be nearly three or fathoms The greatest depth which has been ascertained by sounding is five miles and a quarter or fathoms and curs in the Northwest Pacific Ocean This represents a thickness of the layer nearly equal to the height of the loftiest known mountain The effect of alloying certain metals with certain other metals is quite re markable The presence of tieth of one per cent of lead in standard gold will render a bar an inch thick so brittle that it may readily be broken by a slight rap with a hammer

do not enow even my origin Oh it s to be cast upon the world thus ess and poor And as he spoke he buried hia face in hia hands as if he would suppress his gushing feelings and near to him stood one that witnessed his distress said a syren voice close be- lind him is there no one who cares for you Percy V and on his shoulder she laid her snowy hand as though she would suppress his unbelief He started turned around and there stood Bose and her sweet face wore a look of pain A yes yes sweet I do Percy and Yes your father is my friend Then why will you leave us said Bose in a tender tone Bose you know that I have been the jause of much discord since 1 have been n your family and I have borne the I have for the respect I lad for your father and my love for you but I can bear it no longer I will go out nto the world in hopes that I may yet acquire a fortune j and Bose tell me if I do and cotue ag in may I Ob I will love you said she him and though years hould pass away before you return I will remain faithful be and then he im- pressed a kiss upon her sweet rosy lips md away Another hour and he had quit the house where be had pent so many years It was near the closing of a mild mer day when a magnificent steamer ay anchored at the City its decks were crowded with strangers all eager to tread more upon the land Among the last that stepped on shore was a tall young man from the North With his valise in Us band he bent his way along the wharves in search of em- ployment among the shipping houses hat stood there but alas I be was a stranger and had failed to bring tials to recommend himself as he should have done he searched in vain until at last with faltering atep and a heavy heart ae was giving up in despair when he came to a large where he had not been before he walked into the where a man of perhaps forty years of age was sitting Percy thought perhaps he might be the leader of the establishment Percy enquired if he was the head bis answer was young man what do of With a full heart Percy spoke Do you want a boy in your store to do such work as lean I have no to offer yon I have just arrived in a steamboat from the North have no money or friends have not even change to pay for a nights lodging The chant looked incredulous Percy saw it and his heart sank with fears Oh do not refuse he said while tears trickled down his cheek The merchant at first half doubting was moved by his grief and being pleased by his frankness told ijim he would try him a few days Our young friend walked home with the merchant and a few days it proved as he told The merchant was so much pleased with the strange youth that he engaged turn to assist him in his trade In course of time he became the clerk he never seemed to weary of any task that would please his employer and in the family of the merchant he was a great favorite They all loved him and tie in return loved them as ardently as an own son But Percy although he thought that Nellie Thornton was as fair as his Bose still he only loved her as a sister Five passed and be had now become one of the owners of the store where five years before he had begged a home poor moneyless and without friends One evening as they were conversing in the family as Percy was socially talking Mrs Thornton eyed him very sharply and said Percy looks like Nellie very said her husband if they were brother and sister they would not look more alike our own little boy our Percy we lost could not resemble her more Had you a son by that said Percy when did he die I would to God that he was said Mrs Thornton with a sigh I should much more happy if I thought him dead tor now if he is alive he may be among strangers whose hearts seldom give the love and sympathy of apparent He was lost said Percy said years ago my wife and I went to the North on a visit to New York We had only one child at that time our little son We arrived there in safety and after we had staid some time with our friends we prepared to return All in readiness we took our way to Philadelphia where we hastened on board a steamer that lay there all ready for sea I went to see ii our baggage was secure my wife and child I thought were safe in the cabin my surprise when I went down to find my wife but my boy was gone she thought he was with me We searched the vessel but no boy was found My wife fell in a swoon Ah how awful were my thoughts that each moment increased the distance between us and our darling child and another thought would come rushing into my mind that our boy had fallen overboard and was drowned resolved as soon as we reached New Orleans to leave my wife with her friends and hasten back to find my boy But underwent so much that I was seized with a fever and spent months on the road when I recovered aud arrived in Philadelphia I could find no trace of m child and never since have we anything of him But God has sent a son in Was there no mark whereby your son might be found if he were not Yes answered Mr Thornton was a scar on his left arm made by a dog and around his neck was a small locke gift from his his name engraved upon it said Percy rising to bis feet I believe I am your long-lost son Then he showed them his arm on which was a large scar and thrusting lis hand into his bosom be drew forth a locket stood for an instant amazed as if the news bad shocked them in another moment their long-lost treasure was locked in their arms How different his condition now from that when he landed from the North without friends or home now blessed with wealth and above all a father mother and sister to love him Then the thought he could aspire to gain sweet Bose He knew her father would never have denied him bad be asked her land but now even her mother who had tried to embitter his life would rejoice her daughter could wed the son of the richest merchant in New Orleans Without resounded music joy and gladness reigned witbin tbe elegant mansion for it was the of sweet Bose Tbe and beauty of the metropolis had been asked and as Bose mingled in tbe giddy whirling of the dance a lovely smile might be seen on her sweet face but as soon as the excitement passed by a sorrowful expression would steal into the lately laughing eye and those tbat saw it knew that something was wanting to make her happiness com ete Perhaps it was Percy who was wandering afar from the mansion seat of Mr Le Claire perhaps she was thinking bat be who had won ber maiden heart was bis life away in poverty Yes it was of tbat friendless youth she was thinking such is woman's con- tancy that it should be abused Then was it strange that she should ook so The evening was advanced when Mr Le Claire came to Bose linked arm in arm with one who it appeared md chanced to call upon him His countenance was dark bis hair like the wing and his tall straight form and black eye showed clear that he was born beneath a southern sun Thornton of New said Mr Le Claire and after talking a moment he walked to the opposite side of the saloon where Mrs Le Claire was sitting Who is that tall young man you have iust introduced to said she ingly lost in admiration Why that is Mr Thornton dear of New Orleans the richest merchant that lives there After a short conversation with Bose his heart as full as it be he led her on to the floor to dance the last dance of the evening It is strange that a few years will one so much not only the form but the face Tbe morning after the party Mr Le Zaire's family were seated in the parlor Bose leaning her head on her hand as though in deep thought when a servant entered and gave a letter to Mr Le Claire he opened and looked at it a ment then approaching Bose be Bose Percy has come he will be here in twenty minutes come come up he is welcome Then he began pacing the floor said he as a fine carriage drove to tbe door with servants and ery A gentleman sprang lightly out s is Mr Thornton and I will duce him to Percy who will soon be here I don't see why you should be so glad to introduce a poor youth like Percy so Mr Thornton of the South But haps he may be as rich as Mr Thornton now for when be went away be said he bad hopes of gaining a she said he bas been most fortunate exclaimed Percy who entered that moment Thanks to kind dence for directing me to my father's house some years ago Tis Percy himself who stands before you Bose screamed with delight and flew to his arms too much overcome to speak The old man was affected so much tbat he stood silent with trembling lip and wept like a child Oh how deep was that moment of bliss it made amends for all the years of absence years of doubt and distress tbat both bad passed It was not long before lights again gleamed from the mansion of Mr Le Claire and again there gathered a gay crowd to witness the marriage of Bose to tbe man who had borne so much for her sake and her proud and haughty mother was pleased with the union of her ter with a poor outcast Itching Plica Is one of the most annoying

kept a dry goods cery and general store at what was known as Burke's old now the parlor ot the residence of Mr John T Knight on North Fourth stieet nearly opposite Barnet's hotel Among the men in their employ was Fred Heller a young man of steady habits and appearance who came to Eastern to Monroe county Depue S Miller a brother of our townsman Thomas T took considerable interest in religious matters and delighted to dis- cuss doctrinal points He was very eral in his views and did not have a great deal of in the orthodox theory of an unending torment lor the wicked Young Heller did dot agree with Mr Miller and they often discussed their differences of opinion One day after a debate upon the truth or fallacy of endless ment one of them proposed that he who died first should return and by certain raps inform the other which doctrine was the correct one The proposition was at once accepted Another person a man named Barthol also in the employ ot Miller Bro was called to witness the agreement Mr Thomas T Miller happened to be in the store at the time and also heard what was said When the bargain was made both men were in good health with every prospect of many moie days During the following winter Mr Heller went lo a sleighing party at which he took a severe cold that rapidly into consumption Unable to follow bis occupation the young man went to his home in Monroe county And heie the first strange occurrence happened One day he retained to the house looking very pale and and when he was asked by his what ailed him replied that as he was picking he had been taken up by some unseen power carried some distance and again set on earth As he grew worse Mr ler who while in Easton boarded in Mr Depue S Miller's became anxious to return to town Despite the stances ot his friends be came to Easton and two days after his arrival died very unexpectedly at the residence of Mr Miller the house now occupied by Kev CJ H Edgar on the corner of North Fourth hnd Spring Garden street Boon after Mr Heller's death strange noises were heard in and about the house The noise always consisted of three distinct raps or blows At one time three loud raps weie heard in the hall but on going out no one was to be seen while the raps weie repeated on the partition Keys on the piano were sounded always three in rapid succession On the day that the corpse of young Heller out of the house raps were heard by the pall bearers in the en try These occurrences became so quent and desiring that the matter should not be given publicity Mr Miller sent bis family away But be continued to sleep in the building accompanied by the man Barthol had been the ness to the agreement made with Heller One night while the two lay in bed they heard three loud raps on the wall of their toom In a few minutes after a hand seemed to grasp their cover ana in three jerks pulled it from them to the floor Mr Barthol was about to speak to the invisible visitor when Mr Miller to him to keep quiet adding Don't you my with Ferd From that hour the noises ceased and although watch was kept for several succeeding nights ing wot thy of mention Of couise it is impossible for the writer to say what power made the noise heard by the inmates of Mr Miller's house or pulled the covers from the bed He leaves it to each reader to judge whether the opinion of some that it was the spirit of Ferd Heller returned to inform Mr ler in accordance with their agreement is correct or not That the agreement was made is beyond doubt Triat strange noises or disturbances followed the death of Mr Heller can be proven by living witnesses Mr Miller never volunteered to talk about the matter although when questioned he always told same story aid as he was a man of the highest in- no one presumed to question what he said Mr Miller afterwards moved to Stroudsburg and then to sas where he died a few years ago became of the man Barthol we cannot say Mr Thomas T Miller a brother of Depue S is the enterprising wholesale dealer in hardware on North Fourth street and he recollects the ter ot which this article relates A Long Absent Husband Turns up at Last WOONSOCKET E L Feb socket has a

to deal by their masters In Paris this is the most fertile source of fleecing practiced upon strangers who take bouses Commissions are collected by the con- cierge doorkeeper by the cook by the butler and often by the housemaid Sometimes the whole body of domestics are together and share the spoil pro rata sometimes each exacts on individual account Thus every article consumed in the household pays a tax from the coal merchant to the milkman It a book be kept and the mistress of the house seeks to regulate her affairs a double entry is made the mistress and one for the butler If the shopkeeper have any scruples which he never does the domestics so manage as to get hia into disrepute The business has readied such in York that the newspapers have taken it up and the revelations fairly equal
