A Fire In China.1
A jicrson who M as present atthc late fire;
in Hong Kong, China, saVs : r-I trust never
to see such a Bight again; The long road
shaded with trees leading; from "our part of
the town to the populous! part, - was alive
with Chinese carrying"tueir goods, women
huddled together over their beds, baskets,
stools, clothes, crofckery janjthing and ev
erything in the way ofj personal goods.
Siiiall-footed women tottered : along, held
up by their children ; while others bore
ome goodbi of -bronze -for 'some family
treasure, f Several Icwing machines' lay on
the road j and I niet5 a tuperb American
piano- carried along. S'u-k people borne
along in blankets told i uThat Hkj hospital
was on fire. Still we made our way to the
J front, throu:Ii the
smok, up' a. trectof
ytluitJe of small Pardee"
merchants, who were huddling out bales of
cotton, silks, embroiderfelramed"tiirtnrcs,
etc., w hile so great! w-as the mass of broken
looking glasses that w alking became diffi
cult. ' AtJast we reached the cordon of sol
diers, ami beyond t a blazing mass was all
that remained of the civil" ; hospital and
eight other f4arge
and general -stood
houses. The governor
and the governor
said to me, "I had j to blow it up to saved
the jail ;n and then he
knows what we may hae to do ; there are
nearly one . thousand jpnsoncrs." Now
came the shrill b!ast of flie bugle. "Stand
back all.'1 j Oyt came from the smoke the
engineer officers, having just laid the
charges to blow up the rear of the hospital,
which adjoined tliojail4jard. Another ex

Soldiers marched up,
fresh cries were raisediml a stranger com-i
ing up said, "You jhad better stand up on
the rise of the hillj for they are about to
bring out the prisoners." It was. like the
riot scene in "Barnaby jKudgei" I could
hear the order, "Ifix bayonets, and then
down through the crowd and dust tramped
the soldiers, with about one hundred hand
cuffed creatures iii their midst. When X
and I returned we followed the governor
through the baek jentraiiec in the jail, pars
ing through the eetttj-al police station,
where "the insiectdrs4 who are married men,
have large quarters. Here English furni
ture, books, ornaments,! dresses lay about
drenched with water. The governor of the
j jail told me-thatjthc jail was saved by the
blowing up of'Tlte; civil 'hospital, but that
the danger then w'as from the police station
stables. Very soon they were gallantly
brok en open, principally by sailors, and
huge piles of hay handed from man to man T
and thrown down; the Jtjep streets; and
that night many j homeless Chinese were
-cuddled under the' hay.j. Now the block of
buildings in front of th Oriental bank was
to. be blown up. I hastened thither, thro'
a never-ciiding scene of S distress; to find the
bank hung over with the handsome car
pets soaked ivvith wafer. Within doors
papers were being! packed in safes, bank
notes in tire-proof boxes1, and so sent down
to the harbor escorted by soldiers, and
plated in steam launches. I watched the
blow ing up of Koss' tailoring establishment,
a fine block of buihlnigs. Several fifty
pound charges of powder weretlaid, the
bugle sounded aain, and Ross' ceased to
exist. This, however, Saved our end ol the

Medical Effects of Onions.

things very well worth thej saying in some
way. Few tilings are so silly as quarreling ; :
nothing so silly as quarreling in the news
papers. Yet, as the Meeriger says, "we
frequently find in the newspapers flagrant
attackg or diatribes against unolfending in
dividuals, usually cnianating from hird or
fourth class editors of obscure prints, or
weak and disgruntled' pe -sons, who hope
thus to provoke controversy and thereby -be
dragged forth prominently before the pub
lic. 'But any journalist who respects him
self and is conscious of -seeking to do his
duty onlv, scorns to notice these little fice-
like attacks, and besides, can spare neither
time nor space to advertisj such Lillipu
tian assailants. -
''The proper plan is to jursiie the even
tenor of j-our way without turning aside,
either to thfe right or left, to notice these
petty flings, "unless they assume the grave
proportions of personal calumny and false
hood, and can be traced to a respectable
source. Then, by all means still keep out
of print, and hold the party to summary and
severe ersonal account for gratuitous and
"The best way to settle! difficulties and
put down slanders, is to mpct : their authors
face to face and amically settle, if possible,
any differences that may eiist. What does
the public care for the personal affairs and

your readers to foist private matters and
grievances upon their attention in lieu of

and all, of 460 feet. Then for a few ,
paces, the troubled and tossed waters
flow along in comparative quiet until
they pass Lover's Leap, 500 feet per
pendicular. Near by is the Devil's
Pulpit, a huge mass of rocks striking
out from tlie wall side of the cut, 450
feet abeve the river, with stand
ing room for the devil and at least
one hundred of his imps. Close by
is the Student's Rostrum, a level-bot
tomed cove in the mountain's side,
GOO fect from the rushing stream be

mind' full of amazement and wonder
at the works of tlie great Creator, comes
the grand chasm, a narrow gorge,
through which the waters rush, with
a perpendicular wall on one side 800
feet high, and on the other, a little
sloping, two or three hundred feet
higher. If the explorer has not al
ready been filled with terrors of Tul

Jookover this awful precipice, and he
will be filled to the chin immediately.

for forty or fifty acres has dropped
down from ten to thirty feet, and trees
are actually sticking out of the ground

there? that's the question; and when

A New Theory of Dew. Pro
fessor Stockbridgo, of the Amherst
Agricultural College, has been making
some experiments as to the origin of
dew',' and has arrived at conclusions
somewhat different from those general
ly accepted. It is Usually held that dew
is the moisture of the air condensed
through contact with objects of a low
er temperature, and that it does not
form until radiation has reduced the
tempcratue of the earth. Professor
Stock bridge asserts, however, that dew
is the result of condensation by the air
of yarm .vapor which rises from the
soiJj and he embodies the result of his
experiments in these propositions: l.
Tlie va)br of the soil is much warmer
at ipght than the air, and would be
condensed bj it. 2. Vapor from the
soil; is soon diffused and equalized in
thejwhole atmosphere, but in the larg -
est proportim when evaporation is j
taking place near the surface of the
soil ; aud, other things being equal,
plants nearest the earth have the most
dew. 3, Dew under hay-cocks, boards,
ami like obiccts on the ground, could
receive it from no other source.
