EYES AND EYELASHES. Wlmt Tlu-ir Various Form* Signify to the riiysiognumist. |Snn Francisco Argonaut.] Eyrs wliich show no lim-.s when in joitow or laughter denote a passionless md unimpressionable nature. Eyes of i loiik, almond shape, with thick ikinned eyelids which appear to cover half the pupil, are indicative (so says Lavater) of genius. This docs not seem probable, unless they are found in conjunction with a brow which is full over the eyobrows and which has one deep perpendicular line between the eye brows. &lt; ilio frequently notices this combination in the faces of distinguished literary men and artists. The «lmondshaped eye, however, even without this peculiar form of forehead, always means a susceptible, impressionable man.

EASY TO GET DRINKS. Tramp* or Anybody UN CM Sutlnfy Their Appctltn for Liquor. "To be a successful tramp requires M much ability as success in any other great field of existence," said one well versed in the ways of the homeless vagrant. "The characteristic specimen of this class of humanity has often been painted as one who is thrown out of employment by business depression, and compelled to acoept the alternative of starvation or vagrancy. Aftercontend ing against the pangs of hunger for awhile he accepts the bitter alternative and takes his bread from the hand of the charitable well-to do. Now, while there are without question a great main men whom misfortune or ill-luck has consigned to the ranks of the tramping fraternity, theyjusl aa certainly const! tute tho great minority of the ilk." Tin' tramp philosopher began to warm up on his subject, and ejecting tobacco juice viciously from between his teeth, continued: "« ho ever saw an emaciated vagabond applying at the Central stat...

Hammering 1 <>' Drankenneu. [Newspaper Article] — Sausalito News — 1 October 1885
Hammering 1 &lt;&gt;' Drankenneu. [London Standard.] In Mandalay hammering appears to bo the punishment adopted for drunkenness. A Burman has been hammered to death, and the companion of his drunken spree, a Jewish British subject, is dying in jail, with several bones broken. Thus it will be seen that the customs introduced by Theebaw differ widely from those which prevail here. In Burmah drunkards are hammered to death; in England they hammer their wives to death. The Burmese method clearly possesses marked advantages, but we fear that Sir w*. Lawson will never succeed in inducing the house of commons to legalize it here. The Bank of England now cover* three acres of «ro-a»l.

Where planters lived in princely stylo during tho days of slavery, owning an island equal to ft principality, raising rico and cotton with a legion of slaves, there has been little but desolation and decay.

Mr. Comegie, a rich iron-maker of Pennsylvania, has replaced the old Dungenness mansion on Cumberland island with a $900,000 douse, and now a yacht club is going to spend $700,000 building a yachting station on tho same island. Other northern millionaires will follow these. Soon the seaeoast islands will be gay again and populous. The i old civilization is gone forever. It is lost under forest and weed that have overgrown home and garden. But the newcomers will disclose to the world Isla...

A sliccl of Letter ■--•■•■ • [Heientlfla American.] The Burgos, a modern steamer especially built to carry oargOl cheaply at a | slow speed, lately loft England for China with a cargo weighing 5,000,000 pounds. During the first part of the voyage, from Plymouth to Alexandria, the consumption of coal was 282,240 pounds, tho distance being 8,880 miles. Tho consumption per mile was therefore k;!.5 pounds and the consumption per ton of cargo per mile 0.098 pounds. in other words, half all ounce of coal propelled one ton of cargo one mile. Assuming that piper is as efficient a fuel as coal, we have, says The Railroad (ia/.itte only to burn a letter on board this steamer to generate and utilize enough energy to transport one ton of freight one mile. It is difficult to realize that such a trilling act as burning a letter involves such a waste of useful energy, or can have any reference to the energy suffloit nt to perform a feat which under less favorable circumstances, requires a couple o...
