Dark complexion is Superior to Light dark plants and Trees Are the most Hardy and dark horses Are the Best. A Square forehead and prominent veins Aie a Large prominent Pye which Indi Cates conversational is the reverse. But the Best indication of superiority is a Large and prominent nose roman or aquiline full a third the Leneth of the face. Philosophers lawyers editors poets literary men and brain workers generally have a Large excess of daughters. Wine merchants Tav Ern keepers Small retail dealers orators physicians and musicians have a Propen Eranee of boys. Clergymen appear just to struggle through the ordeal without incur ring the stigma of inferiority be ing equally intelligent sober and moral with their wives and producing an equal number of boys and girls. Of course fur the stability of the new Law it becomes necessary to dhow that musicians medical men and orators Are inferior. Accordingly the Fust Are Lymphatic the second Are made rather than born to their profession and the most dieting wished As an exception have Large families of and Mere Public speakers do not possess the highest order of faculties or while in most of them the base of the brain will be found to predominate Over the Superior meteors. This is an interesting Seison of the year for astrenmers.1 there1 have been a number of november meteoric displays which have been among the most remarkable Phenomena Ever seen on the Globe. The scientific american makes a summary of the most remarkable instances in the year 599, on the last Day of in Harrym wars hot hither and thither and flew against each Oiler like swarm of locusts this Phonon Noii Rastert until Daybreak people wore thrown into consternation Ana made Rippli ration to the most High was Nover like seen except on hip coming of the messenger of god on whom be Benediction and Pence. In 1799 a Meboldt then travelling in the Andes saw before Sunrise thousands of Meta Ore in the space of four hours leaving a track behind them Iron five to degrees in length Many of them having a nucleus As Brif Futas Jupiter. In there was a Shower marked by grandeur and Sublimity. The meteor passed Over the heavens like flakes o Snow and according to Arago s Esti mation two Hundred and forty thou Sand of them fell m Threa hours As seen from his place of observation. In 1866 the latest Shower was seen in Europe and a portion of it was seen in America in 1807, the next Shower is due in 1899, and is eagerly Antiopi in the that it will confirm several to florios based upon Pio sout and previous observation. So beces8. Monday night professor Joseph lectured before the Young men s Christian association of san Francisco on the influence of darwinism on philosophy and be the lecturer stated that in 1802, when the matter of darwinism was first taken up the Public were not sufficiently enlightened upon the subject to thoroughly understand it. The succession of animals is like unto the construction of a building. The lecturer that everything in science that has been discovered in the last Hundred years tends to Point to Ward darwinism. The lecturer that Man has reached his perfect state by gradual transformation and evolution. Take the said the lecturer he has now three toes in his Hoof. Go Back and you will find that he had five toes thus showing that he sprang from a five toed ancestor. There will be a greater change in Man which is imminent that will bring out his religious nature. It is reported that a or. Freire has successfully inoculated five per Bous with yellow fever germs and the people so treated had the Dis ease but Bililly. The germs were attenuated by frequent trans Plantation in gelatine. Aud yet it cannot be determined whether the inoculated Are proof against further attack and this can Only be Learned by observation and experience. A new York paper growing jubilant Over this discovery asks Whethe consumption could not be similar la treated and prophecies that the Day is not far Distant when contagious diseases will lose for suffering humanity much of their terror notes. Truth says it would seem according to ail reports that the time has arrived for Nevada to Plant the red Flag of one of her lofty peaks and ring the Bell for an auction. Her population is now Down to Aud decreasing at a rapid rate. Her citizens Are beginning to make fire Wood of tie Large and costly building erected at Gold Hill and Virginia City. We move an amendment to the Constitution that will enable Hon. James g. Fair to possess himself at Cost Price of so much of the state As is not already under his control. The Cologne Gazette referring to the hostile articles of the French press in regard to the German Crown princes visit to Spain especially alludes to an article in the Paris nationals which be says is plainly intended to incite the Span ish republicans to commit revolution. In answer to Spain s recep Tion of the German Crown Prince the correspondent Money has been sent Barcelona from France for this object. At a session of the american Public health association a Large number of papers was read. One was on the removal of Able matter from it advocated the system now practice by the new York Board of Heally one paper on overhead ventilation of sewers recommended the Ems Hon of separate pipes from sewers to and above the loot s of houses. The the Reno Gazette Are the Only two papers in Nevada that pay for the full Pacific coast and Eastern Day press report. We invite a comparison of our telegraphic columns both for fullness and freshness with any evening paper on the coast. The first counterfeit postal notch their appearance. They re badly executed As Auy engraver lithographer or Printer can readily detect them. The scroll work on tie counterfeits cannot begin to compare with that of the genuine note. Judging from the steadily in creasing number of immigrants added of the Pacific coast from Japan it California paper predicts hat the government will in a few years be called upon to Deal with he japanese As it has with the chinese. The new York Bible House re ports that not a single copy of the revised new testament Lias been sold in four months. The Eureka sentinels report is to Start again. The Leader and Bodie free press found it so Dull they had to quit. Wadsworth school Jetport. Report of Wadsworth school for month ending november 10, 1883. Number of girls enrolled 22 num Ber of boys enrolled 33 total 55 average number belonging 53 aver age attendance 49 percentage of attendance following is the Roll of Honor Maud Johnson Thomas Smith Lottie Gladding George Watson Jessie Mcpherson Roy Lewis Walter Mcpherson Eddie go Wop. Iff. A. Hammel teacher. What a educator has to soy about it. Editor last saturday s if Csc of the Gazette contained an item concerning the no recess plan which exactly coincides with my ideas on the subject and i there fore White to you expressive of my Hearty approval pertaining thereto. Many times while in school Ponder ing Over some method by which the insubordination of disobedient scholars could be restrained i have thought that if they were deprived of recesses it would be a much easier task to govern them and hence the discipline of the school would greatly improved. Finally i put it to a test and find that it works admirably. Among some of the a vantages which Are commendable in Envor of no recess Are 1. No interruption in the course of the Day s study thereby getting the full sense and Benefit of what they Are studying. 2. Not being absorbed in their games Over which they sometimes become very much us cite a the pupils Aie More Atten Tive to their studies. 3. The teacher can have better control Over them As they Are constantly under his vigilant care. 4.1 the scholars not Settius Over heated and excited their games Are not liable to Uptou. Cold which fact is often the Case resulting in diphtheria or some Kindred disease which oftentimes ends in death. 5. Having no re Cess the tendency for using profane and vulgar language will be diminished considerably for the excite ment of their games often leads to its use. A no Chance to steal away to smoke cigarettes no Quad reling nor lighting As is always the Case. 7. Finally As a result they will learn More in the course of a term. In fact the general statues if tile school will become better. Now the reverse is mostly the Case. Every school contains some vicious or hours who Are unceasing in their efforts to contaminate others with their corrupting influences. What the opportunities for doing evil Are less frequent the Tei option being the scholars do not become a co Tomeil to use vulgar and profane their minds will become More elevated and a pure sense of delicate refinement will permeate their thoughts. Contact with the wicked often vitiate the mind and blunts i in sensibilities. If the time Given to rat Ess every Day were de voted to a Short lecture on Good morals and manners or if the time we rec pied in Cales Thi Iii exercises 111 my opinion it would have a decide i salutary of text upon the character of the school and hence the morale of the rising generation would be beef lated. The change would be noticeable in the course of a Tei m. A trial is sufficient to con Vince anyone of its superiority Over the present antiquated syst Etc Wlinich dates Back to our forefathers. It May appear strange to Tome that the i a Tom be abolished now after it has stood so Long but education like everything else in this age of progression is constantly advancing upward Auu outward Aud when we As , see or hear of a new method of improving our schools i think we would be direct of oui duty did we not give it a trial if Farmers were to follow in the foot prints of their forefathers they would Cut their Hay and Grain with the old fashioned sickle or a scythe Aud they would thresh their Gram with the Man killing Flat. I would like to hear from some of our porn neut educators month sub sect Foi i think it is one of vital importance to our schools and which greatly interests the teacher and patrons.
