A ROPu OF WORMS.
| Hie Ciirlona I’roCeaslon That May He
Seen In Norway t'oreafa.
In t o deep pine forests of Norway
the woodcutters sometimes find a ser
pentine object nearly 50 feet long
crawling slowly over the ground. If
they did not know that it was made
np of millions of little worms, they
might be frightened by its peculiar
appearance. These worms, called the
seiara, gather during July and August
In large numbers preparatory to mi
grating in search of food or for change
of condition. When setting out on
this journey, they stick themselves
together and form a serpentlike
mass, often reaching a length of be
between 40 and 50 feet and several
inches in thickness.
As the seiara is only on an average
about three thirty-seconds of an inch
in length and barely wider than a fine
needle, tiie number required to com
pose a line of the size above men
tioned is enormous. Their pace is
very slow, and upon meeting an ob
stacle, such as a stick or stone, they
will either writhe over or around it,
sometimes breaking into two bodies
for this purpose.
M. Guerin-Meneville, a celebrated
French naturalist, says that if the rear
portion of this wonderful snakelike
procession be brought into contact
with the front part and a sort ot circle
formed the insects will keep moving
round and round in that_circle for
hours and hours without apparently
noticing that they are not getting on
in their journey. If the procession
be broken in two, the portions will re
unite in a short time.
The Norwegian peasants, when they
meet one or these trains, will lay some
article of their clothing, such as a belt
or handkerchief, on the ground in
front i.-f it. If the procession passes
over it, it is regarded as a good sign;
but if it makes away round, the re
verse is believed.—Chicago Record.
Jnwt How Great a Force Jn Expended
on the Piano.
The amount of power expended on
playing on a piano has recently been
figured out in away which, if not alto
gether accurate, is at least interesting.
Commenting on the statement that it
really requires more force to sound a
note gently on this instrument than it
does to lift the lid of a kettle, says Wo
man’s Life, it is easy to verify it, if
one takes a small handful of coins and
piles them on a key of a piano.
When a sufficient quantity is piled 1
on to make a note sound, they may be
weighed, ami the figures will be found
to be true. If the pianist is playing
fortissimo, a much greater force is
needed. At times the force of six
pounds is thrown upon a single key to
produce a solitary effect.
Witli chords the force is generally
spread over the various notes sounded
simultaneously, though a greater out
put of force is undoubtedly expended.
This is what gives pianists the won
derful strength in their lingers that is
often commented on.
One of Chopin's compositions has a
passage which takes two minutes and
five seconds to play. The total pres
sure brought to bear op this, it is es-
I timated, is equal to three full tons,
i The average “tonnage” of an hour's
playing of Chopin’s music varies from
12 to 84 tons.
The Landlord Outwitted.
In the main hall of one tenement, on
the ground floor, we c-o.unted 17 chil
dren. says Jacob A. Riis in The Atlan
tic. The facts of life here suspend or
dinary landlord prejudices to a certain
extent. Occasionally it is the tenant
who suspends them.
The s 1 iceman laughed as lie told
me of the ease of a mother who covet
ed a flat into which she well knew her
family would not be admitted. The
landlord was particular. She knocked,
with a troubled face alone. Yes, the
flat was to let. Had she any children?
The woman heaved a sigh. “Six, but
they are all in Greenwood.”
The landlord's heart was touched by
such woe. He let her have the flat.
By night bo was amazed to find a flock
of half a dozen robust youngsters dom
iciled under his roof. They had indeed
been in Greenwood, but they had come
back from the cemetery to stay. And
stay they did, the rent being paid.
Seising; the Opportunity
“Miss Amanda,” said the somewhat
elderly but well preserved bachelor
to the sparkling young woman with
whom lie occasionally spent an even
ing, “1 think it is a shame the way
you treat that young Hankinson. If
i were he I wouldn’t let you play fast
and loose the way you do. 1 would
simply come and carry you off.”
“If you were be, Mr. Upagain,” she
replied, with downcast eyes, “perhaps
it wouldn't be necessary to carry me
Upon which hint Mr. Upagain im
mediately spake, and the invitations

A Fair Jury.
In a suit, between father and son be
fore a Hoosier justice of the peace the
sextet comprising the jury came in
after three hours' deliberation with the
following impartial verdict: “We the
jury agree to find judgment for neither
plaintiff nor defendant and find that
each pay half the costs.” It is said the
verdict struck every one as being so
unusually fair that even the parties to
the action were satisfied.—Case and

The statement that a chimney, the

most gratifying success has attended the
use of forced draft, without any chim
neys whatever out of the ordinary, ap

periment of forced draft gives promise
of great economy in fuel, as well as
doing away with the expensive and un
ornamental chimney. Tho draft arrange
ment consists of a largo fan, which is
connected with a 4 by 4 double cylinder
engine. The fan has a wheel 54 inches
in diameter and runs at almost any rate
of speed desired. The draft is something
prodigious and makes it possible to em
ploy fuel of a lower grade than any
heretofore used. Instead of tho best

land and screenings has been tried. The
cost of operating the fan, even with im
perfect apparatus, is something liks

Harold Frederic’s self confidence and
power of dominating strangers stood
him in good stead in one of his first

Berlin. The incident as ho related it
seemed natural enough to an American
not brought up in awe of a military ;

it was almost surprising that he came
through it with his life. He had been
paying some formal diplomatic calls,
and in the evening dropped in at the
Case Bauer in the unwonted glory of a
frock coat and a tall silk hat. This hat
was carefully hung on a hat stand, and
Frederic sat down to read an English

was more than Frederic could endure.

to the object on the floor. ‘‘Pick up
that hat, sir!” he roared. The officer
stared amazed; the waiters were par
alyzed with terror at hearing one so
much more than human so addressed
by a civilian. ‘‘Pick up that bat!” re

The Danger of Oi*eM*e.
The danger from a case of diphtheria
, in New York at any season of the year
is far greater than the danger from a
case of yellow fever in the same place.
Still persons who would shun a street
i where a case of yellow fever existed
, would deliberately enter the apartment
. of a person suffering from diphtheria.
A serious offlbreak of typhoid fever
, creates but little consternation, and the
presence in our midst of innumerable
. cases of tuberculosis, a disease which is
, responsible for an incredible number of
deaths, is looked upon with indifference
, by the public. The misconception in
regard to the danger from this class of
j diseases often renders the efforts of
i health officials ineffectual. —Alvah H.
