- ■ m POWER FROM THE WAVES. T h e Q n e e r M i l l i n C o u r s e o f E r e c t i o n o u th e P a c i t i c C o a s t. Many a visitor to the Cliflf Honse has ondered what the spidery-looking con- Lvance is that they have seen a few hundred yards up the beach at Point Lobos. If they will go up to it now and make inquiries, for it is at last in work- - -------- .LT— -will find ’■* ------- “ Dg the rl i against power that can b e utilized for working mills and manufactories, and drivi-“ cable oars and putting salt water bai into city houses, and sprinkling the streets and flushing the sewers. Though the result of supplying a power that can take the place of high-priced coal is so important, the machinery by which it is 1 is simple enough. One accomplished i veloped suction pump, -------- - ------- plied by the waves, a reser- Suspended de­ in which the power is supplied _ voir, and water wheels, from big iron uprights is a framework, across the lower part of which is fasten­ ed heavy planking. This planking pre­ sents a face to the waves about six feet by twelve, and its framework is so ar­ ranged that it can be raised or lowered as the tide rises and fails. The waves dashing against this move it in iron groovs backward and forward, and its motion is communicated through some other machinery to a twelve-inch piston, so that a movement of thirty-two feet by the framework causes a nine-foot movement of the piston. This pump connects with a Ipng suction pipe, the other end of which is under water. This pipe is fitted with a screen to keep out sand and debris. An air cb amber four­ teen feet high keeps the pressure in the pump steady, and forces a constant stream of water through the big iron pipe that clambers up the cliff and over the hill to a height of 150 feet. That is as high as the pipe goes now, but the force is sufficient to p\imp the water a height of 500 feet above sea level. The remainder of the plan is a huge reser­ voir at that height and system of water wheels, which would supply power lim­ ited only by the number of motors.. After the water has passed over the water wheels it is the idea of the com­ pany that it could be brought into the ^ citj[ and used for private baths, street * uges bay .sprinkling, sewer flushing, and other i things. At present' the motor only is g g j! npleted, and the water pumped up is Footprints of Amphibians. Professor Bickmore, in his lecture on “The Period of Keptiles and Mammals,” in the Museum of Natural History, New York, presented on a screen illustrations of the foot-prints of one of the amphibi­ ans of the coal period. The illustration was a drawing from the great slab of blue stone which belongs to the museum, and was taken from the stone quarry at Turner’s Fall, Mass. The animal itself, Mr. Bickmore explained,was one of those which roamed in great numbers along the Connecticut valley during the car­ boniferous period. This one had left its footprints in the mud, and the im­ pression having been subsequently filled with sand, the cast was preserved when the clay became hardened into stone. From fossils of the animal, which have been obtained in other portions of 't appears to have had an feet elongatec long, on four legs,. the hind feet, the fc the valley, it appears to have had ed body, about fourteen f< It moved mainly forelegs bein g shor ter, and lived partly in the wat^r and partly on the banks of the stream. At that time and until a later period in the age of mammals, the lecturer showed by the drawings of the coast survey, the coast of New York extended fully 100 miles into the ocean south of its present line. The ocean steamers of to-day, in ap­ proaching the Narrov/s, follow the old channel of the Hudson River, which, previous to the subsidence of the land, as shown by the sea-soundings, fl< into the sea through a deep valley over a steep cliflf of great height, u-uci must have formed a magnificent cataract. —iV.

He has one bunion on the right foot and no corns. His neck measure is 16i. He wears open-front shirts and pays $27 a dozen for them. He seldom carries a silk handker­ chief—usually carries a common linen. He keeps one horse. He IS a regular smoker, and smokes small cigars—a clear Havana. He does not smoke to excess, however. His whiskers are getting gray.

Ordinarily the motor does not work at low tide, but will run usually from eigteen to twenty hours per day, and under favoring conditions of wind and tide will work steadily the whole .'Awentyrfour. This motor was begun about three years ago, butunfdl'feunate circumstances have delayed its completion. Severe storms have several times thrown the work back, and when the dynamite-load­ ed schooner exploded off Point Lobos the rock upon which it was being built was split in two. It has only just been completed, but so far has worked with complete success .—San Francisco Exam- Stealing a Trade. It is, perliaps, the province of mor­ alists to decide whether one ma}’^ “steal a trade” without the guilt attached to the pilfering of property. Possibly the ■worthy who declared that a physician’s fee for a small service may properly be a large one, because he must charge for the “know how,” of any trade or profes­ sion is sacredly the property of its owner. The following anecdote which may serve to illustrate one side of the question, comes from W. H. Dixon’s “White Con­ quest:” Ho Ling was a well-to-do Chinaman in a California town. He one day for a carpenter and asked his price for setting up ten frame shanties. Ho Ling supplying him with poles and planks. “One hundred dollars” was the reply. “Muchee dollar, muchee dollar I” ob­ jected Ho Ling. “No,” answered the carpenter, “very cheap.” “Ten house one hundred dollar, one house ten dollar ?” “ Yes,” returned the carpenter, not thinking of his -words. When 1 is fond of base ball. His chest measure isi 37 and his waist 42. He has a good deal of “stomach.' He weighs about 180 pounds and ap­ pears to be 5 feet 7-1- inches in height. He does not fancy jewelry. He usually wears a high-buttoned double-breasted frock coat, and seldom has a suit all of the same piece. He reads for recreatiion. He is fond of Scott, Eliot and Thackeray. He goes to bed at ten and gets ni? be­ tween six and seven. The .family cooking is done by an old colored “aunty.” He is a Presbyterian deacon. Persian Centaurs. The Persians are good riders, and an English naval oliicer, “ who had gone asliore at Abusheher, and was there mounted on a spirited liorse, aflforded no small entertainment to the Persians by his bad horsemanship.” He was great­ ly mortified at this, and an English- speaking native, with whom he had ored to lowing the carpenter set to work, s other moon-faces appeared; sitting ground, each one twiddled his bit bamboo cane, chewed liis morsel of I luglit his knack of building. That nan might rage, but he had no re- Ho Ling’s sheds were not only »peared; sitting on I twiddled his b of nut and watched proceedings. “Goodee buildee-—$10!” smirked Ho Ling, when the first shed was roofed. “I ’ll put ’em all up for you in no time,” said the carpenter pocketing his “No wantee more house,” said Ho Ling. “Me makee a ll! me makee a ll!” It was true that the otlier moon-faces, watching the carpenter with sleepy eyes, had caught his knack of building. That craftsmi bnilt by Mongolian hands, but similar shanties were erected by them at a price far less than that proposed by the Amer­ ican carpenter.— Dixon's White Con­ quest.\ A Wood Splitter. Mr. W. E. Hathaway, of New Bed­ ford, Mass., has the credit of devising a very ingenious machine for splitting w o ^ . It consists of a knife attached to a heavy, vertical bar, which at its upper end is fastened to on eccentric in turn connected by shafting driven by an electric motor. By means of Mr. Hathaway’s invention sawed wood is split faster than four men could do it with an ax. In other words, it is simply an application of the well known fact that lightning splits trees. comfort him on the fol- day in these words: “Don’tbe ashamed, sir; nobody knows U ILTC:?

This red garden snail has also been used externally in the open hemorr­ hoids, where fresh snails were applies* every two or three hours, in raw state, with remarkable success. The large Homan or edible snail is re­ nowned both as a delicacy and on ao- idy count of its reputed virtues as a remei in cases of consumption, which it is s) has in several instances been entirely cm*ed by a regimen of the mucilage from these snails. On the Continent the Ro­ man snail is considered a great delicacy ; but the garden and yellow banded snails are the kinds more commonly eaten.

The history of the oldest and most distinguished orders of sovereigns, of aristocracy and of the military is the history Christiai ;cy and of of mediteval Europe, and of inity’s struggle for supremacy with the Moslem. The orders of knight­ hood, of whicli that of St. John of Jeru­ salem is the oldest, are divided into four classes—exclusively military orders, or­ ders conferred only on the aristocracy— religio-military—demderatio orders and Knights of the Hospital orders. The latter are the Templers, the German Knights, the Lazarists, organized for the ifense of the Holy Land against the ’ anish ordr '' ’ ’Alcantars The order ol the Templers is extinct; that of the Hospitalers still exists, but under an entirely different form; the or­ der of the German Kniglits was abolished by Napoleon I., in 1809, and revived again in 1834 as a religio-political order of Prussia; the Lazarists, in 1572, were consolidated with tlie order of St. Mau­ rice et St. Lazare. The gi’eatest aristocratic orders with sovereigns and the highest The gi’eate which only sc ancient nobil , St. An- ncient nobility are decoi’ated, are but eight in number, successfully founded as follows: TJie Garter of Ei ’ Seraph of Sweden and Norway, nunciata of Italy, Golden Fleece of Austria and Spain, Elephant of Den­ mark, St. Andrew of Russia, Black Eagle of Prussia, and St. Stephen of Austro-Hungary. Next to these eight orders in antiquity and “ grandeur” are the following : St. Holy Ghost) of France; Danebrog Denmark, Montesa of Spain, Christ of Portugal, White Eagle of Poland, now of Russia, and Bath of England. Of orders of the third class, of which the French order of the Legion of Honor is the type, Russia possesses 8; England, 7; Sweden and Norway, 6; Bavaria, 3; Austria, 9; Prussia, 1; Spain, 10; Por­ tugal, 7; Italy, 5; Wurtemberg, 4; Den­ mark, 2; the Netherlands, 4; Hesse 4, and France only that of the Legion of Honor. These decorations are called democratic, and are conferred for any kiind of service, military and otherwise, noble and ignoble. They are worn by generals and lackeys of the higher order, by literary men and haberdashers, by savans and cooks, and are as plentiful as campaign buttons during a Presidential year. Not a few of them are purchas­ able, and many of them, particularly those of the smaller States, are verit­ able cheap John affairs. The orders of St. John of Jerusalem, of the Garter, and of the Legion of Honor are typical of their classes. The first a religio-military order, the second an aristocratic one, and the third altogether democratic or plebeian. There is another order entirely distinct from these classes, an order only conferred for heroic conduct ou the field of battle —the order of the Iron Cross of Ger­ many. The commander-in-chief of tho ■army and the private in the ranks wear the same decoration, a plain iron cross; and yet in Europe it is the highest mili­ tary d is tin c tion . Thus is recognized moral equality, and in all alike the greatest military virtue.— St. Louis lie- public. PniiiiiNG carpet lacks is a lowly work, yet it may be done with eclat.
