BOTANY AND THE X RAYS. Amongst ihe various use" to which the ltoutgen ra\a can be put, that of botanical research is to bi adiied. At the Uuiversity Extension College, Ke^iiii-g, numerous experimenu have been con- ducted. and it has now be^ii found possible to show rhe ovules ill.de} the ovary in an unopened Lud, the seed, without showing the seed vessel, and even the tiny veins upon the white petal of a flower. Thsse results are .aill to be due to re ractiou aud reflection of the rays when the incidence is sufficiently' oblique The photograph of a fish's eye also showed similar marks.

When we make an excavation in a cultivated field its order to observe ti.e cie%-ei,)I)nie,ir, of roots, and then examine a vertical wall well smoothed with tdC .-|>ade, we are struck with astonishment to see how compact the earth i-. It appears to form a ecmtinuous ma-is, aud we are surprised that it is poisibie for the air to enter aud circulate freely therein. In orde." that plaut>s may live, grow, and develop normally, it does not *utlic» that their stems and leaves ahull expaud iu an oxygenated atmosphere, but their roots aiso must breathe, and to this effect they need oij-gen. The very existence of plants, therefore, hUdices to show that air habitu- ally euters the earth, aud is even easily renewed therein, since air that remains for a short I ime in a closetl vessel in contact with the earth very quickly loses its oxygen, which is converted into carbonic acid. If the air did not renew itself in the soil it would Lecome deprived of oxygen. Now all analyses of air extracted from the earth re- veal therein, on the contrary, a large proportion of oxygen. Earth is, therefore, usually pei nn able to the air, but is it always so ? Is all earth perme able to the same degree ? And if at times it is but incompletely so,and if even it becomes imperme- able, to what cause is such impermeability due ? THE DIGESTIVE APPARATUS OF VEGETABLES. It appears from recent discoveries as if man's "amour propre" is to receive some severe checks. Emicent scientists have during recent years adduced proof of the fact that the digestive mechanism of the human body is not peculiar to man, but is duplicated in every detail in the lower animals. Proof-positive has now been afforded by the existence in maize and the potato of a vigorous starch-digesting process. The developing bud or shoot secretes a ferment that attacks the starch of the mass and changes it into sugar for absorption by its growing cells. But this is not all. Not only does the cereal do with ease what is difficult to our salivary glands and pancreas, but also performs a feat impossible of accomplishment by the human digestive apparatus—it dissolves or peptonises cellulose or woody fibre. Certain other plants display even more strikingly human characteristics in that they have actually become meat eaters and meat digesters. It has long been known that a large family of flowering plants, of which the "Venus' Flytrap" is a familiar example, secrete upon the surfaces of their leaves a thick, sticky juice, which in the former simply entangles insects, and in the latter attracts and holds them till they can be actually seized by the halves of the leaf closing upon them trap fashion. TELESCOPES. The limit of big telescopes has apparently been reached by mechanical means known at present. That more powerful telescopes than those now in existence will ultimately be used is, we think, a safe prophecy to make. It is probable, however, that they will be built on entirely different lines from those at present in use, unless some decided and great improvement is made in the matter of making, casting and annealing glass for objectives. Professor E. Gates, an American, has evolved an invention whieh certainly contains some reasonable possibilities. Professor Dewar has discovered that oxygen is magnetic; Professor Gates proposes now to take advantage of that discovery and construct a metal tube fitted with ends of glass and filled with oxygen gas. The tube is wound with wire, and when the circuit is complete \he magnetised iron of the tube will draw the gas contained in the oxygen lens towards the sides, forming of itself a lens of enormous power, the size of which is practically illimitable. Using this device as a substitute for a glass lens, Professor Gates has succeeded in making photo- graphs, and feels confident that he can construct a gas lens of 50ft. in diameter, and with it secure a picture of the moon with an accuracy of detail hitherto undreamed of. The ease with which the system may be applied will doubtless lead many experimenters in various parts of the world to researches along this new line suggested by Pro- fessor Gates, and we will doubtless soon know whether or not there are possibilities for it in the future. THE ST. LOUIS STORM. There is no doubt that the storm which re- cently visited St. Louis with such appalling results will go into history as one of the greatest pheno- mena of the age. Many theories have been already propounded to explain the terrific violence of the force, including one by John C. Barrows, M.A. He says it was neither a hurricane nor a cyclone, but a vacuum storm. A partial vacuum was formed over a certain area, with the absolute vacuum at a centre which seems to have moved very rapidly from south-west to north-east and to have been surrounded by an area of various hori- zontal winds. The results of the storm prove that the damage wascaueed by enormous pressure from within buildings, exerted by confined air after the pressure on the outside air had been quickly reduced. The more open windows and doorways a building had the less its roof and walls suffered. Light wooden sheds near the centre of destruction were still standing because their sides w,ere open, and the air under their roofs could rush out of their sides, while solidly built ware- houses close by, which offered no escane to the air within them, were unroofed and haA their walls thrown outward. The external pressure on the walls being relieved, the internal pressure became too great, exerting force sufficient to lift a weight ten times greater than that of an ordinary roof or wall. This theory only partially accounts for the enormous devastation. There were undoubtedly other causes, but they are as yet unknown. It is confidently asserted by eye witnesses that imme- diately preceding the storm there was a profound electric disturbance in the atmosphere. Nature's balance seemed in a state of doubtful equilibrium, and the storm that resulted in such frightful low of life and property owed its existence to the màpping of the tension which was already straided. When, the true cause of these dynamic rortieee is discovered, it will doubtless be found due to a disturbance of the electrical equilibrium at given point& RUBBER NOT WATER-TIGHT. Experiments with a hermetically sealed rubber bottle containing water have shown that the rubber is not absolutely water-tight.

Life lies behind us as the quarry from :ce we £ et tiles and cope-stones i'or the uu toy oi to-day.—Emerson. He is h;i;.f»v nh s" circumstances ,'I t !:i* temper; but he is more happy who can suii 1m temper to any circumstances.—D. Burne.

I.- -n therefore s-ttiug it forth or defe-id:og it. 'iYjtl: in the inward parts is a I'JI.er. — ge Macdonald. Charles Kingsley thus ('ou!l,d¡.d a f ;Vnd: "Make a rule and pray to God to 11,'Ip you tc keep it, never, if possible, to lie dow.< at. n !It without being able to say, I have m ,de nf human being, at least, a little wiser, a 1; 1< happier, or a little better this day.' You wil1 find it easie- than you think, and pleas uitar." True greatness is in the chura-tsr, never in tha circumstances. No matter about wiivi'ig a crown, make sure that you have a hoad worthy ol wearing a crown. No matter about the J'U :.Ie. make sure that you have a heart worthy oi' the purple. No matter about a throne to sit < u. make sure that your life is i-egat in its own n. trinsic character that men will recognise the king in you, though you toii in the field or UllDE or serve in the lowliest place.—J. R. Miller. We talk of human life as a journey, but how variously is that journey performed! There are those who come forth girt, and shod, and ioa; ed, to walk on velvet la vns and smooth U rnices, where every gale is asrested and every beam is tempered. There are others who walk on the Alpine paths of life, against driving misery, a,lIl through stormy sorrows, over sharp aiHict on-t walk with bare lect and )1.1 ked breast, Jatlad and chilled.—Sydney Smith. We can know but little of the motives wid h impel the actions of another, but we ou lit to know something of those which control cur o .vn. Mingled and entangled as ih^ymav be, we f'an it least endeavour to dktiusjuish them, and to d\mU upon the most worthy and yield to their i i Sil- ence, thus discouraging and weaken iug "ile which are inferior and sellish. Such tea :Yunrs are even themselves transitory, for, when ci.eiishd perseveringly, they lead from obligation to desire, from duty to preference. The ought," con- stantly obeyed, merges into the wish, and what was once a self-restraint becomes a delight, l'rofessor Huxley, one of the most eminent men of science, pleading in the School P-oard for the Bible as the best source of the highest eluc.ifion for children, said that he knew of no other b ok in all the world's wi le literature, by which the reli- gious feeling, which is the essentia 1 ba?e of con- duct, could be kept up and he asked, By what other book could children be so humanised and made to feel that each figure in the historical procession fills, like themselves, but a momentary interval between the two eternities, and earns the blessings or curses of all time, according to its efforts to do good and hate evil, even as they alio are earning payment for their work." If we think of that vast distance over which Darwin conducts us, from the jelly-fish lying on the primeval beach, to man as we know him now, if we reflect that the prodigious change requ site to transform one into the other is made up of a chain of generations, each advancing by a minute variation from the form of its predecessor and if we further reflect that these successive changes are so minute that in the course ot our historical period-say, three thousand years—this progres- sive variation has not advanced by a single step perceptible to our eyes, in respect to man or the animals and plants with which man is familiar, we shall admit that for a change ef chain so vast, of which the smallest link is larger than our recorded history, the biologists are making no extravagant ilaim when they demand at least many hundred million years for the accomplishment of the itupendoua procesa.-Lord Salisbury. Nature tru!y be'ongs, not to those who own aer acres, but to those who love her. The farmer ? the squire may claim the field, but the landscape is mine. The rich man's paintings may hang in rooms which the peasant o-ay not enter, but at dawn and sunset God paints pictures nocking the efforts of human art, which the poorest may see for nothing. The modest boy in London looks up at the stars, and learns to wonder and rejoice, and is inly fed. The daisy and the cowslip do not avoid the fields where I poor men walk, or cottage children play. To the stonebreaker by the wayside the primrose nms down the coppice with its cup of gold and when the lark bursts into song, her palpitating neart reeks not whether peasant or peer are listening to the music. The light shines as iweetly and as daintily into the cottar's window as into my lady's casement, and the clambering roses look into it an if to say God loves you. ¡ Downes. It is a mistake to believe an unbeliever has no oelief. Examine the unbeliever's tenets, and it) will be found that the creed of those who have no I sreed is somewhat as follows: I believe there is out one God I believe there are many gods I believe there is no God. I believe not [in creation; j I believe in evolution the world was not created; it was created by chance it was created by a con- course of atoms; it always existed; it created itself. I I believe map has no soul; man is a beast; a beast has a soul; the soul dies with the body; every. thing dies; nothing dies; death is a blessing ieath is an evil I believe not in religion; natural religion is the only true religion; all religion is unnatural. I believe not in revelation; I believe in tradition; I believe in mythology I believe in spirit-rappings. I believe not in Moses, Isaiah, or Chriat; I believe in Osiris, Menu, Kriatna, Ormusd, Huddha, Zeus, Jupiter; also in I Zoroster, Sanchouiathou, Confucius, Pythagoras, Mahomet, Swedenborg, Joanna Southcote, and Joseph Smith. I believe not in the Bible; I I oelieve in the Chaster, the Vedas, Talmud, Zend A. vesta, Koran, Age of Reason, Davis's (Revela- rions, and the Book of Mormon. In short, I am Vthodox in every kind of hetefodoxy, and a firm believer in all unbelief.—E. P. Day. Chemista have detected no "spirit" escaping tike the white dove of Polycarp, from the mouth )f the dying. The telescope of Lord Rosse has reflected no gleam of the golden streets of a New Jerusalem in sun or moon, or through all the mmeasurahle galaxies of the sky. But we have come also to learn that it cannot be here, nor in such ways as these, that the great truth can be caught to us. Nay, if it could be so, it would lose all its sanctity, and Heaven itself," as has been said, would cease to be part of our religion, and become a branch of our geography." We must look elsewhere for the pledge of the soul's immortality in our trust in a God all good and arise we must find the resting place of our assur- ince that this world of mingled joy and sorrow, of imperfect good, and of evil yet unpurified, is not the be-all and end-all of His great design. In- directly modern science has helped us, for it has shown us that since the dawn of humanity, even when our forefathers yet struggled with the mammoth and the cave-bear in the wilderness of in uncultured world, the belief that "death was oot the end of man" had already sprung up, and amid the funeral caves of Aurignac, left us the I tokens that they had ceased to feed themselves, "like the brutes which perish."—Francis Power Cobbe. There are times in life when we are able to regard humanity from a higher than the habitual randpoint; times when the lines of prejudice that seem to be so ineffaceably traced grow dim, and when, as we regard the individual, we are able to take a truer view of his future and his past. Think of the love with which we look upon a little child we hold the tiny prophecy of life in our arms, we gaze upon the baby features so unformed, the helpless little hands, the mouth that is unable to articulate, and can only cry for succour; the dimpled cheeks untouched by Time's rude hand, and the soft form that seems as though it could nover develop the sinews that would enable it to contend against the enemies that await it in the battle of life and, whatever our opinions of poor, frail humanity may be, the hardest heart is melted, the sternest views are softened, and the iciest soul is warmed by the sigbt of that little child. We think of the struggle that lies before it, and the weariness of the way along which its little steps must wend, the here- ditary predispositions which already are its fate- ful heritage, the circumstances that will mould its career, the unknown dangers that it will face, and the chasms and pitfalls that will yawn before as it; and with our 1 tenderness is mingled a pro- found pity, as we look forward to the life that lies along the uplands of maturity to which the weary httle feet must climb,-—Lady Socaecseb
