EARTHOUAKF RECORDS GOVERNMENT GEOLOGICAL SUR- VEY COLLECTS HISTORY.

It Is Long Since Lava Flowed 8o ~'ar Down the South~tm Slope of Vesuvius. In all the eruptions of tlle nine- teenth and the openi'ng ~f the twenti- eth centuries the lava'-o~,~,c~uvius never flowed so far dow~ the south- ern slope as it has within the l~ast few days, says the New York S(m. We must go back to the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries for the coun- terparts of the present flow. In those centuries perhaps even wider streams than those of the recent eruption touched the present site of Bosco Trecase and nearly approached the sea.

Dele- gates were p:'.-,sent by invitation of the German government from 19 coun- tries, and an i,tervational association was then formed for cooperative inves- tigation of earthquake phenomena. Thei constitution adoi)ted I)rovi,Jes for a'. general assembly to meet at least once in four years and a permanent com- mission, composed of one delegate from each nation, which will direct the work of the association. A central burean is located at Strasburg in connection with the imperial seismological station there, and rel)orts are forwarded to its director and are published from time m time. The association was joined by many countries but 'he United States has not yet signified ~ts intention of becom- ing a member. The permanent com- mission or executive committee of the association was o~ganized in Berliu last summer. Prof. Reid was present at that meetiug a!so. After his return he recommended, as he did after, his return from the Strasburg conference, that the United States join the associ= ation. The director of the geological sur- vey has recommended in a letter to the secretary of the interior, that the United States accept the invitation of the German government to join the international selsmo~eglcal associa- tion, provided that congress shall see fit to make the necessary approprla= tion. The total sum that congress is called on to appropriate annually is $1,300, which includes $800, the fee that the United Stat~s would be required to contribute to the association and $500 for the exp~nses of the delegate. I~ is not likeiy that a delegate from the United Stales will ever have any- thing more important or n:ore disas- trous to repc~'t than the) records of the earthquake whi?h devastated the metropolis of the Pacific coast. WHY POE LEFT WEST POINT He Was Given to Escapades Out of Limits and Was Caught in the Act. Several army officers were sitting in a New York hotel recently, discussing: old times at West Point. The talK i turned on the instructors who used to put them through their paces, relates Success Maagzine. "I ghall never forget old Prof. Church," exclaimed one. "He always impressed me as~ being about a hun- dred years old, and I guess he was pretty well along, because one day, up in the library, when I happened to he looking at a portrait of Edgar Al- len Poe, he informed me that he had taught the poet mathematics, and ex- plained how the young man came to leave. "It was as much of a crime in those days as now for a cadet to be off llm-, its without permission. It meant dis- missal. Poe, being an untamed spirit, couldn't resist the temptation to take a chance now and then and run down to a resort at Highland Falls. He and four other cadets stole off late, one night, and were having a high old time, when they heard a squad from the Point coming down the road. You can imagine the wlld scattering. Two cadets sought the cellar, and two more the rooms above; Poe was smah and was lifted into a convenient sugar bar- rel. The [our other fugitives were quickly discovered. It was an after- thought on the part of the lieutenant In command to lift up the lid of the sugar barrel. He dragged Poe out and marched him, with the others, off to the guard house. He had offended be- fore, and was regarded as the ring- leader in the escapade, and so hm career as a soldier came to an end." "And a mighty good thing it was," exclaimed one of the listeners, "for the world of letters!" Difficult Tongue. l~sklmo has th~ reputation of being a difficult tongue to understand, even more to speak. All manner of parts of speech may become Joined to verbal roots and the whole may be conju- gated like a simple verb~whlch is muddling to a foreigner. One mission- ary brought back a word which, when written on the blackboard, was' quite 2Vs yards long.--Boston Tran~ripL danger of destruction. We know that three flows reached it previous to the nineteenth century, but for consider- ably more tha9 a century it has not been threatene~I by the lava poured out of the crater. These facts show the unusual char- acter of the present outburst. The streams have flowed nearly to the southern foot of the mountain, al~d thiv has not occurred before for many ;enerations. One stream has pour~d down the northeastern side, and we have no record of any earlier invasion of tbis slope. Most of the present lava flow has desceuded the south and southeast slopes and the ends of the streams were at least three miles from the ruins of Pompeii, but it was not a lava flow, but overwhelming showers of volcanic ash. In the greatest eruptions of Ve- suvius, however, the quantities of lava ~poured out have been small as com- pared with the flows from some other volcanoes. They may seem very l large, for the estimated quantity of I lava poured over the crater rim in !some of these mltbursts has been about 600,000,000 cubic feet, which is equivalent to a square mile covered 22 feet deep; but this is almost in- significant when compared with the lava that streamed from Skaptar Jokull, Iceland, in 1783, whose vol- ume has been computed to be about 21 cubic miles, equal to that of the entire quantity of water that the Nile carries to the Mediterranean in a )-ear. WORK FOR ARMY OFFICERS College Where They Learn to Con- struct Suspension Bridges and Trenches. Persons who think officers of the regular army have l~othing to do but sit around their c,lbs attired in their nattiest uniforms enjoying life would doubtless be mnprised to see them minus blouses and starched collars swinging axes, tiewing timber for trestle bridges, digging sod for fas- ciae revertments and making palisades in time of peace. There are three colleges at Fort Leavenworth for the instruction of army officers in the art of war-- the infantry and cavalry school, the signal school and the staff college. All are under the supervision of Brig. Gem J. Franklin Bell, aided by a body of officers, designated as a personal staff. One interesting feature of the col- lege course is the engineering depart- ment, where the student officers have to do real work and have no enlisted men to aid them in any manner. In this they are called upon to construct, ly- ing, kneeling and standing trenches, palisades, fasciae and gablons, revert- meats or sandba~.~ and loopholes of sod on parapet, wire entanglemems, bridges with framed trestles on land and water, tresLle bridges of round timbers, bridge.~ ot canvas pontoons, barrel and log rafts, double lock spar bridges with trestle approaches, bridges with wooden pomoons and with pile trestles and a fi:'ing bridge. The suspension bridge is 100 feet long, between two supporting towers. Two of the bridges, with reserve equip- age wooden pontoons, are each of 12 bays and 240 feet long. Each bridge is tested by driving a loaded army wagon across it. The flying bridge, to carry troop?, across streams too wide to be britlge.q, was constructed on the Missouri river. It is made by sinking a large stone, to which a cable is attached. Pontoons, either two or three, or long rafts are attached to the cable, and the current is made to force the raft across the stream by means of a rudder placed at a certain angle. The officers are taken to different parts of the big reservation, and in charge of their instructors build trenches and bric~g~, the maiority of which are left sta~-eiyng. They have been viewed by high ~,rmy officers and pronounced perfect in every detail. Unexplored Island. Hainan island, off the coast of China, is one of the few unexplored parts of the earth left.

Jackson, merchant, of Park= ersburg, W. Va., says: "Driving about in bad weather brought lddney trou- bles on me, and I suffered t w e n t y years with sharp, cramping pains in the back and urinary disorders. I often had to get up a doz- en times at night to urinate. Retention set in, and I was obliged to use the catheter. I took to my bed, and the doctors failing to help, began using Dean's Kidney Pills. The urine soon came freely again, and the pain grad- ually disappeared. I have been cured eight years, and thougn over 70, am as active as a boy." Sold by all dealers. 50 cents a box.

TORTURED WITH ECZEMA. Tremendous Itching Over Whole Body ---Scratched Until Bled--Won- derful Cure by Cutieura. "Last year I suffered with a tre- mendous itching on my back, which grew worse and worse, until it spread over the whole body, and only my face and hands were free. For four months or so I suffered torments, and I had to scratch, scratch, scratch, un- til I bled. At night when I went to bed things got worse, and I had at times to get up and scratch my body all over, until I was as sore as could be, and until I suffered excruciating pains. They told me that I was suf- fering from eczema. Then I made up my mind that I would use the Cuti- curs Remedies. I used them accord- ing to instructions, and very soon in- deed I was greatly relieved. I con- tinued until well, and now I am ready to recommend the Cuticura Remedies to any one.

The last slaves under English-speak- ing people were United States negroes, set free in 1865. False teeth of ivory, on plates of the same material, and held in place by gold wires, were in use in the year 1,000 B. C. During the past three centuries more than 200 different systems of short- hand have been devised. Pitman's was first published in 1840. The first Standing army of modern times was established by Charles VII. of France in 1445. In England the first standing army was organized in 1638. The first attempt at stereotyping in America was made in 1775 by Benja- min Mecom, a printer at Philadelphia. Previous to this time the Dutch had stereotyped a prayer book in 1771. The first printing press in America was es- tablished in 1639 at Cambridge, Mass. Earlier than any known paintings, some tapestry discovered recently at Deir-el-Bahari, near Tbebes, is among the oldest specimens of human art ex- tant, with the exception of the pre-i historic drawings on the bones of ex- tinct animals by the river drift men, which, of course, aro incomparably older. But these paintings represent the period in which the art of Egypt was at its zenith, the eighteenth dynasty, and consequently date back ~bout 3,500 years. Just a Tip.

NO KOWTOWING FOR HIM. ]~otel Man Who Was Not to Be Ovex- awed by Dignitaries of State. They tell this one on former Gov. Ceorge Hoadly of Ohio: Once upon a time, in the midst of a campaign, Mr. Hoadly was to deliver a speech at a little town in the great and glorious Buckeye State. When he reached the one hotel the town. boast- ed he walked up to the register and wrote his name. The proprietor-head- porter-steward-headwaiter-depot - run- uer was behind the desk in his shirt sleeves, his hat on the back of his head, and a cigar stump held between his teeth. W~hen the visitor had put down his John Hancock, the factotum turned the register around, read with- out the flicker of an eyelid the name ther~ written, wrote "10" beside it with a lead pencil, and said: "You kin jest take yer grip right up that stairway there an' back down the hall clean to th' end. Yer room's right on th' left hand side of th' hall, in th' corner--number 10." Vith considerable astonishment and not a little injured dignity Ohio's chief executive pointed to his name, smiled faintly, and said: "I am George Hoadly." "Yep; I notice," said the rustic without turning a hair. "An' yer room's right there at th' end of th' hall--number 10. Can't miss it." With more hauteur, and almost quivering with outraged importance, the guest said impressively: "I am George Hoadly, governor of the state of Ohio!" Turning, then, with a look of ex- asperated impatience on his face, the hotel man exclaimed: "Well, what d'ye expect me t' do-- kiss ye?"--Judge. NUGGETS OF KNOW~LEDG:E.
