Kother Tongas A writer in Wide Awake remarks upon the pathetic way. in which a sub? jugated people cling to their mother tongue. And it is true that a people can never be said to be truly conquer? ed so long as they refuse to speak the language of the conqueror. The Welsh?that subdued yet unsubdu ablc people?have never ceased to speak Welsh. You will be told that they have al? ready ceased to speak it; that the use of the language is fast dying out;" but directly you draw near tiic bounda? ries of that portion of Great Britain you begin to near it It is a formid? able language in print, but easily managed by the tongue. In many Welsh families, especially in remote districts, it is the only lan? guage spoken. And when, a few years since, the decree went out from London that in the board schools in Wales only English should be spoken, it fell hard upon the little folk who knew no other tongue. Try as hard as they might to express themselves in unfamiliar English, the familiar househol...

Diffusion of Odors. It is said taat a grain of musk is ca? pable of perfuming for several years a chamber twelve feet square without 8tista%ing any sensible diminution of its volume or its weight. But such a chamber contains 2,9S5,984 cubic inches, and each cubic inch contains 1,000 cubio tenths of inches, making in all nearly three billions of cubic tenths of an inch. Now it-is probable, indeed almost certain, that each such cubic tenth of an inch of the air of tho room contains one or more of the par? ticles of the musk, and that this air has been changed many thousands of times. Imagination recoils before a computation of the number of the par? ticles thus diffused and expended. I Yet have they altogether no apprecia? ble weight and magnitude.?Montreal j Star. Ancient Brick Malting. The great perfection to which the ancients carried the art of brick mak? ing is probably due to tho abundance of labor, plenty of time to devote to each stage of the -work, their great pa? tience aud ...

She was a strong limbed, well developed and nearty girl of 23, or thereabouts, at the time of this story,* and was known to the Skytown community as a fearless woman, and no iess peculiar than brave. Peculiar, indeed! She had no rela? tives that any one knew of, and was all alone 'way out in that western country, and for a woman to be alone in Dakota m '82-3, and especially "holding down a claim" ten miles from any one, present? ed a spectacle of self sacrifice and daring rarely exhibited by tho^entler Bex.
