From whence comes this genial warmth t No coal or wood is con sumed to raise the temperature. The problem is easily solved. Here are fifteen stoves, not constructed of iron or stone but of flesh and blood, and in these stoves hay and grain are burned constantly, and hence the heat. It is the warmth radiated from the animals that we feel, and this comes from actual combustion, produced by the play of vital or chemical forces within the organisms. A large percentage of the food supplied adds to our store of milk or flesh, but is burned to produce animal heat, or iu winter the supply...

8 Shipping' Elophnnls. ' A Calcutta newspaper gays : The hoist ing Into the air and lowering elephants into the hold of a ship is not only an unusual sight to most men, but also a strange expe rience to most elephants. They were lashed with strong ropes slung as far as practicable in Blings, hoisted with cranes with three foot tackle, and lowered into the steamer's hold like a bale of cotton. When in the hold, they were placed in pens built of strong, teak timber baulks, bolted to tho ship's side to prevent them from breaking loose. The fear the animals puflbred was the only injury they under went, and by watching the eyes of tho poor beasts their terror was very manifest. Tears trinkled down their mild counten ances, aud they roared with dread, more especially when being lowered into the hold, the bottom of which was sanded for them to stand upon. We are told that one female elephant actually fainted, and was brought to with a fan and many gallons of water. At Bea it appears that t...

By some mistake, owing to her inability to understand tlio English language, she took a train on the Delaware, Lackawana and Western Railroad, and got oir at New ark, N. J. When she was informed of her error, she bought a ticket to return again to New York on the next train, but on account of a very remarkable occurrence she was induced to change her mind. As the girl sat in the depot, downcast in spirits, alone in a strange land and al most penniless, visions of her home in "La Belle Fiance" crossed her mind. She thought of her mother who had recently died, of her only brother who full with his father as they fought side by side at the terrible battle of...
