N ew Y ork , Dec. 10. — Probably theyoung- est prisoner ever behind the bars in Hudson county is iO-year-' old Freddy Reilly, who has been for mally committed for trial in Jersey City for his torture of little Tommy Jones on the. red hot kitchen range at the home of the Sisters of Peace a few days ago. Young Reilly ’ s face would make a His skin is pink and FRED REILLY, study for a painter. white and dimpled, and pretty eyes of genu ine violet peep'out at one from under a mass of chestnut hair, beautiful in its disorder. The story of the torturing of Tommy Jones has already been published. Young Reilly was alone with Tommy in the kitchen of the home of the good Nun of Kenmark. He gagged the 4-year-old boy with a handker chief, stripped his body and, after tying hands and feet, lifted him on the stove, to lie there fin til the smell of burning flesh at tracted' Sister Magdalen. City Physician Gray barely succeeded in saving the boy ’ s life, so terrible were the burns. Freddy Reilly is one of the six children of John Reilly, once a wealthy crockery dealer and noted citizen of Jersey City. Several years ago the father died, and the mother lost what little fortune he left. Their children were all placed in an asylum. Freddy began to make trouble for the nun of Kemnare as soon as she took him to the home 6n Grand street. He stole toy banks from other boys, and broke open windows to run off and spend the pennies for cigarettes and candy, and became thoroughly incorri gible. Freddy will probably go to the reform school, where no face as pretty as his has ever entered. ALGERNON S. SULLIVAN. New York ’ s Distinguished Citizen Dies at ' His Home. N ew Y ork , Dec. 6. — The death of Alger non S. Sullivan, who passed away at his home in Sixteenth street yesterday, a victim of typhoid fever and congestion of. the bronchial tubes, removes a gracious and unique figure from New York. . He was born in Madison, Ind., sixty years ago, and was prepared for Miami university by a private tutor, who was formerly a clergyman of the Church bf Eng land. He was ad mitted to the bar in Indiana, where the rough and ready practice, was not to his taste. He removed to Cincin- iium nati and became a f /MWSSflffjmjln prosperous lawyer r in such company as that of Chief a . s. S ullivan . Justice Chase, Wiliiam S. Groesbeck and George / H. Pendleton. He was prominent in Whig politics there, but refused all nomina- nations or offers of political preferment. At the outbreak of the war he came east, and settled in New York. He soon achieved a recognized position among the lawyers of New York, and joined the Democratic party. “ The silver voiced orator from Ohio ” was a pame soon applied to Mm. When his posi tion became assured he gave himself- the lei sure to go into society and take a prominent part in.literary and artistic enterprises. He wrote for The Atlantic and The North American Review. Mr. Sullivan held for one term the office of district attorney, and for several terms was public administrator. He has since been in private practice. Penn Yan Has a Natural Gas Well. L yons , N. Y., Dec. 12.— People in the village of Penn Yan, Yates county, are ex cited over the finding of an unusually strong vein of gas in that place. William Townsend was boring a well, wMch had reached a depth of only fifty feet when the gas vein was pierced. Saturday afternoon a pipe was driven into the earth and the escaping gas was lighted. A flame burst several feet into the air and made a loud roaring sound, and the heat from the flame was intense. Several gas wells will be immediately sunk in differ ent parts of Penn Yan by enthusiastic citi zens, and pipes will be laid throughout t- e village for heating and lighting houses and business places. Reducing the . Number of Saloons. P hiladelphia , Dec. 12. — The new high license law passed by the 'last legislature promises to drive out of the liquor business not only those who cannot afford to pay the $500 license fee, but also many wealthy dealers-who will find it impossible to secure the necessary bondsmen to become responsi ble for their faithful compliance with the law. Up to the close of business Saturday only 350 applications for licenses for next year had been filed with the clerk of the court of quarter sessions. This; is considered a small number, in view of the fact that there are about 6,000 saloons in the city. Taking Their Honeymoon Afoot. J effersonville , Ind., Dec. 12.— Rev. Johh W.

During the cam- paign. he was shot by Charles De Young, at that time, editor of The Chronicle, the dis pute growing out of a number of personal attacks made by both persons. A few months later Kalloch ’ s son went to The Chronicle Office and shot De Young dead, and was afterward acquitted of the charge of murder. _ ________ , ' Suicide of . a Harvard Student. B oston , Dec. 12. — Henry P. Powell, of New York, aged 19, a Harvard freshman, committed suicide in his room Saturday night, first taking poison and then turning on three gas jets and lying down on the bed to await death.

He was a victim of melancholia. SCIENCE ADD PROGRESS. REMARKABLE -[FACTS CONCERNING ' ANTS AND SPIDERS. A Compensating Balance for a Watch on Which Magnetism Has No Effect. Description of an Apparatus that Pro duces an Artificial Waterspout. At a recent session of the French Academy qf Sciences M. Mascart described theapparar tus shown ih the illustration and 4he resulting phenomena of an artificial waterspout. AN artificial waterspout . A drum 3 feet in diameter is set in revolu tion by a pulley and belt. It has sixradiating pieces, and its rotary velocity at the circum ference is from 90 to 120 feet per second. The drum, as a rule, is placed some 10 feet over the reservoir of water. As soon as the speed of rotation rises to the lower velocity (90 feet per second), spirals are observed to form on the surface of the water, which con verge towards a center from which a. cone speedily makes an appearance, about 8 inches in diameter by 4 inches in height. This first cone is then surmounted by a second cone, but reversed, which is formed of numerous drops, wMch rise to heights of perhaps 5 feet,' and fall back at distances ranging from 3 feet to 10 feot, according to the velocity of the drum. The finest drops or spray will reach ns high as thodrum itself. Bits of straw or chips of wood placed on the surface of the water are drawn together by the vortex, and form a sort of cord, which will rise spirally in the axis of the artificial waterspout. Intelligence of Insects. An unquestionable fact, has been finally es tablished by recent methods of - observation on the habits of .insects and other animals, and that is, that individuals of the same species vary in intelligence; that they are not automata; that they are not impelled by a blind instinct to perform certain acts with unerring accuracy. On the contrary, affirms Science, they often vary greatly in their ability to provide for their young, in their skill to secure sufficient food, in their wit to avoid danger ; in other words, they make blunders and mistakes, and involve their progeny and even their colony in ruin. This individual variation in intelligence is brought out very clearly by a patient seri^ of Ob servations made by Drs- G. W. and E. G. Beckham on the special senses of wasps. They not only repeated many of the experiments o£ Sir John Lubbock, but many new and in genious experiments were devised. Their stadies were for the purpose of investigating tho mental power, sense of hearing, color, di rection, memory, emotion, power of commu nication, general ihteQigenee, eta An in teresting result of their painstaking work was the determination of individual differences as to the faculty of memory and power of dis tinguishing color and direction. This kind of study of the habits of insects has brought to light features of the most surprising charac ter. The remarkable studies of Sir John Lubbock, Dr. Moggridge and others in Eu rope have been paralled in this country not only<by tho observations above quoted, but notably by the labors of Rev. H. C. McCook in. his studies of the American ants and spiders. Non-Magnetizable Watch. Balance. An artist of Geneva, it is announced, has found a method of making a compensating balance for a watch, on which magnetism has absolutely no effect. A watch fitted with a balance of this kind, and with a spring of palladium, and submitted to the action of a Very powerful electro magnet, will stop immediately, but so soon ss it is removed from the magnetic influence it goes on again ■without the regulation being in any manner interfered with. An ordinary watch, on the contrary, when subjected to a similar test, becomes thorougMy charged with magnet ism, as many a watchmaker has found out to his cost. , A Simple Telephonic Apparatus. A telephonic apparatus, so simple in con struction, as not to cost more than half a dollar has been invented in Paris, wMch can be fitted, to the electric wire of the ordinary ri ging apparatus at front doors, in interior rooms of houses, everywhere in short, where the ordinaiy electric buttons are .used, by means&f which it will be possible to give and receive instructions, to know who is knocking at the door, tp communicate, in short, by speaking as well as by ring. On the advan tage of this in every day life it is unnecessary to-dwell, -It is being fitted up on trial in hotels. _________ Fitting Keys in Keyways. In fitting keys in keyways ; an expert ad vises that the keys should make an easy fit on the straight sides, the locking coming on the tapers. Oil the key way, and either chalk or red lead the key; enter it, and the abra sion of .the lead will show where it binds; ease: off slightly with a file, and continue till the tapers bear solid the whole length, then send it home solid. The oiling is important, because if you are fitting into cast iron you will “ seize a cut, ” making ragged grooves in the work, and make- it very difficult to drive the key ont. A Lubricant for Fine Machinery. Put pure olive oil into a clear glass bottle with strips of sheet lead and. expose it to the sun for two or three weeks, then pour off the dear oil and the result is a lubricant wMch will neither gum nor corrode. It is used for watches and fine machinery of all kinds. . The Fewer of Telescopes. The most powerful telescopes now in use magnify 2,000 times. As the moon is 240,- 000 miles from the earth, it is thus practically brought to within 120 miles, at which distance the snow peaks of several lunar mountains are distinctly visible.' 1: - - ■ — - - r Decrease in Gold -Production. ■ According to what are . generally'adopted as trustworthy reports from Victoria, Aus tralia, the yield of gold of tho colony was last year 130,000 ounces less than to 1885.
