A Cardinal on Socialism. Cardinal Vau~han, in the co'reeof a recent address, alluded to the social question: There was a cheap literatre, which was communistic, athiestic and anarchical, and it was spread more or less widely among the working classes in the great centres of in dustry in England. He did not mean to attaok the working classes, whom he honored and respected; nor was he going to abuse the Socialists; but he wanted to get at the genesis of this movement, and he believed If they traced it back they would find it had its origin in the bad example and false principles that were to be found in the higher and better closes. They would fnd it in the want of thought, wantof care andwantof heart among a not incon siderable number of the wealthy, educated upper classes for the needs of the poor. Some said the social question was a stomach question, bnt this was only partially true. To the multitude who sought for work, and could not obtain it; to the multitude who were unable to ...

Gardening Ants. Many curious things are told about ants: which seem to relate thei doings very closely to those of humanity. They fight, they make slaves of thecantnred, they keep cows (oraph. idee), and mill them regularly, etc., etc. It appears from awork recently published by a German naturaliEt that they are to be credited with possesing yet another taste in common with their big" rational" follow - creatures, a tasteforgardeaing. It has been ascertained that more than one species of ants, but partic alarlyinthe"lear-cutterts,' regularly enclose a space of ground within the colony, plant it with a minute Eostof muehroomu, which they carefully cultivate, gather, and consume, just as we do cabbages or strawberries.

POPULAR SCIENCE. A Reversed Scalp, Canon M'Call quotee, in the "Spectator," a remarkable case related to him by a phyaisian who had been a pupil of Sir Charles Bell, the eminent author of "The Bridgewater Treatise on the Hand." Sir Charles used to tell the following story to his close :-A surgeon who scent over the field of Waterloo after the battle found a manlying with his ecalp cnr off by a eabra stroke; He picked up the seclp, and finding the man breathing, though uncon scious, he ordered him tobe placed among the wounded, clapping at the came time the serered scalp on his head, In order that it. might be buried with him, for he did not expect that the poor man weoud recover. The followingday, however, he found the man conscious, and hiescalp adhering to his head, but with the ends revered ; for the surgeon, thinking the man was dying, took no pains to fx the scalp properly. The man recovered, but had to wear his scalp the wrong end forward.
A Natural Barometer. [Newspaper Article] — The Broadford Courier and Reedy Creek Times — 8 December 1893
A Natural Barometer. A curious stone is said to be found in Fin land, where it occurs in many places. It is a natural barometer, and actually forrells prob. able changes in the weather. It is called semakair, and tarns black shortly before an approaching rain, while in fine weather it is mottled with spots of white. For a long timo this curous phenomenon was a mystery, but an analyeis of the stone shows it to be a fossil mixed with clay, and containing a portion of rock salt and nitre. The fact being known, the explanation was easy. The salt absorbing the moisture, turned black when the conditions were favorable forrain, while the dryness of the atmosphere brought out the salt from the interior of the stonein white spots on the sur. face.

Healthiness of Water. Howerermuc sympathy the existance of the workers in coal pits may evoke from us, yetthe actual result of the lilfe on the pbhysicl swelfare of the miners is by no means such as to war. rant any serious commiseration at our hands.

Disease is no more de oolishing in its raids amount them, as a clam, than it is amongt agrioulturlats and labor ers. If one canbe guided by statilie5 the coal-dust atmosphere in which their he is lgssed is no element of any serious evil to them; it may not be pleuasnt, but it is not unhealthy, indeed, the actual death-rate of these miners is not abnormally high, aoven when is included the fatal wholesale disastera which oeuro from timeto time in the pitE.
