The ixxdon-semeni of :1 nostrum by 11 clergyman, above all by a bisliop, has for -hundreds of years been all that was necessary to obtain recognition for such a remedy from 11 believing public. Bishop Berkeley set all .Britni_n to drinking‘ tar water. Supposedly hz1v~ ing -received bene from\ the use of tar water when 111 of the eolic, he publish- ed a work on “The Virtues of Tar Wa- ter,\ on which he said he had bestowed more pains than on any of his produc- tions. and a few months before his. death he published his last Work,-~“Fu1~ ther Thoughts on Tar Water.” That was in\ 1753. That tar water had not passed out ofvfavor in rural England in the time of Charles Dickens is made evident in a laughable incident in “Great Elxpectations.”whe1'e Pip, by a substitution of tar water in a bottle of wine, gives Uncle Pumblechook, corn chandler and seedsman, opportunity\ to take a long swig of Bishop Berkeley’s ‘ciire-all. much to that eminent seeds- n1an’s astonishment and disgvl’st.—Ps.ll Mall Gazette. ‘ The Bishop's Tat‘ Water. CONTINENTAL SCRAIP. PLMITKNG SPONGES. OF THE The highest navigable body of water ln the world is Lake Titicaca, which lies in South America about midway between the Horn and the equator. With a size nearly as great as Lake Erie, it is two miles above the level. of the sea and is continually shrouded in the clouds and mists of the Andes. Rugged. rocky islands dot its surface. and it possesses dozens of great, un- explored bays. Its average depth is 1,000 feet—nearly twice that of Lake Superior——-but in many places bottom has never been found. -The lake nev- er freezes, although, because oi? its height, it is situated in 21 land of al- most perpetual wlnter. Along the shores are ruins of great cities, prob- _ably of the Incas, but so ancient are they that even the Indians have no idea or their origin or history. Several steamers ply over the lake and carry on a valuable trade in gold and other products. of the 1nountains.—New York Mail. England's Distinguished.

They are then taken by the hook. when new cuttings are attached and the cement blocks let down again. Another method was to string them on a‘ wire held horizontal by stakes driven in the bottom. [In doing this. however, various di arose. The sponges became loose and rotated on- the Wire. enlarging the hole made through them. and the action of the salt water corroded and destroyed the wires until. after many \trials and ex- periments, :1 lead wire wit_t_i_g_mc9_x_)per core was successfully used--St. Nich- olas.

The regular subscription price of the two papers 1s $2.00 yer year. There is no defense so familiar to criminal courts as the ulihi, proof that the accused was not near ‘the scene of aT 1‘F ted. There is no defense more satis- factory. except when it is too good. A too good ‘alibi is one of the most sus- picious things on earth. When an ac- cused mnn brings witnesses who swear to his whereabouts for each qnlnute of the period in question the jury begins to doubt. The foreman of the jury cannot prove where he was at the same time with that much assurance. Probably the- judge cannot. How does the accused man happen to have that proof which others luck? Are his Wit- nesses Iying. or was the crime commit- ted earlier than the state thinks, and is the alibi a ‘'plant?’’ Honest men, going unthinkingly about honest busi- ness, cnn seldom prove their where- abouts minute by minute. The fellow who knows the need of an alibi has one ready.—Chicago Journal. Where the Earth’s Crust ls Thinnest. “Italy is visited by ‘an excessive number of earthquakes and Volcanic disturbances because it is the newest part of the earth’s_ surface.” declares M.'Peprett of Paris, :1 French geoio- gist of authority. People. especially those living in the western hemis- phere. look_ upon Europe and all of the eastern hemisphere. in fact, as the “old World.” which, taken one way. is right. But in the matter of the formation of the earth's crust,‘ which geologists now agree is the result of the cooling of the great molten mass that makes our earth, it so happened that the section round about Italy was-the last to cool and conseq has not yet cooled to sogreat a depth as other portions of the world. This, then, makes Italy the newest part of the Wonld’s surface. if our geologists are correct in their es- timation regarding the tardiness in the cooling of that particular section.- New York American. ‘Mrs. Linn Williamson of Rheims has a of 44 Rhode Island Bed and Brown Leghorn hens which dur- ing the months of February and March laid 1,028 eggs.

It was to the ef- fect that he was going down the Mis- sissippi rlver on a steamboat when the pilot announced to the captain that they were out of Wood. The captain said, “Well, put; into the first wood pile.” The bottomed boa‘t was run up to the mud shore, and the captain hailed :1 man who was walking among several piles of wood. Centuries ago justice in England was not administered nearly so im- partially as it is now. There were the “basket justices.” who received their nickname from the presents openly handed up to them in court by suitors. And in more recent times there were the “trading justices.\ satirized by Fielding in \Amelia.\ Towlisend. the celebrated Bow street runner, in his evidence before :1 parliamentary com- mittee in 1816 described how these justices used to issue batches of war- rants every day \to take up all the poor devils on the streets so as to charge them 461. each as bail.

Many letters are received by the geological survey every year asking about this supposed reward. Where the rumor started is unknown. but it seems to be fostered by un- scrupulous or lgrnorant persons who have mining stock to sell. The sur- vey’s olilcials say that the United States does not offer and so far as known to. them never has offered a reward for the discvery of .11 tin mine or any other mine- - Opposition to state education in the past was due largely to a belief that too much learning was not good for the masses. The worthy Hannah More even, who was one of the most ear- nest Supporters of the movement-for the establishment of schools for the poor in England, had very de ideas as to how far the children should be educated. The curriculum, she de- clared, should comprise only reading the Bible and the catechism, and “such coarse works as may fit the children for servants.\ addilig decisively, “I al- ewLof—-n(r—xx=i'i \ <-a_go News. .
