Little Josef Hofsnann. During thepastfew months, writes the Daily. Nc1w, thepnlie have not heard much of the juvenile pianoforte "prodigy," little Josef Hofmann, who has been staying at Eisenach recruiting his health. It will be recollected that the boy was attacked by a nervous dis order, thin result of late hours and overwork; that his American contiacts were suddenly thrown, up, and his parents resolved. to witllraw him from publiclife until he had own to man's cstate.. The cynics, however, doubted whether tihe boy's retirement would last a twelvemonth, and thoe cynics were right.. Mr. Abbey has just returned to the Umted States, and before he sailed he visited Eisenach, offered very favourable terms, and, as he says, carried off a fresh conutract. Vhether the boy's cure is the result of a summer's rest or the sight of the Almighty Dollar is a question upon which the doctors may disagree. It is probably a little 6f each.

The adaption of the instrument has proved most valuable for the purposes of reconnoitering, by giving an automatic warning of the passageo. of troops along a probable line of march at a distance of many miles. The contrivance consists essentially of a iounding plate, which is buried in the soil underneath an expected route of the" enemy, and an electric wire which connects it with an ordinary, microphone at headquarters. So delicate were the sounds which were emitted that the differenoce between a foot and a horse regiment could be easily detected, and an approximate idea could be obtained of the numbers of the advancing host. Genmals Vinceon and De Souls, with their staff, were present at the experiments, and they were so much impressed with the practical ut...

THE KEPLER EXTRACT OF MALT. The uses of bailey in medicine havse .beest known for 2,000 years. Long before the Christian era'it was the custom to make barley into a ptia,'"and thus administer it: IIts a grn richly abundant in.the powerful princi ples that build uptisues and.imnprt strength. From barley is obtained malt, which is an in valuable food.
