WONDERS OF MEMORY.
Idiots and Qonluaas
tnlnly Exhibit Thorn.
If "nil KToat pooplo have groat
memories" as Sir Arthur Help declares
in liis delightful book entitled Social
Treasure It by no means follows that
nil thoso who are possessed of great
nicruorses nre great people. Many an
instance might bo cited to show that
men of very raoderato Intellectual ca-
pacity may bo endowed with a power
of memory which Is truly prodlgous.
In addition to this tlicro aro plenty of
wcll-autlicntlcati-d exnnplcs of tho
extraordinary power of memory dis-
play cd even by idiots. In tho Memoirs
of Mrs. Somen lllu tbcru Is a curious
account of a most extraordinary verbal
memory. 'Thcro was an idiot in
Edinburgh" she tells us "of a respect-
able family who had a remarkable
memory lie never failed to go to tho
kirk on Sunday; and on returning
home could repeat tho sermon si) ing:
'Hero the minister coughed; hero ho
stopped to blow his nose. Dunns "to
tour wo mado In the Highlands" she
ndds "wo met with another idiot who
knew the Hllilo so perfectly that If you
asked him where such a verso was to
bo found ho could tell without hesita-
tion and repeat tho chapter." Theso
examples are sulllciently remarkable;
but what shall bo said of the case cltod
by Archdeacon Fenron in hi valuable
pamphlet on Mental Vigour? ".There
as in my father's parish" sis the
archdeacon ' man who could remem-
ber the day when every person had
boon buried in tho parish for thlrty-livo
years nnd could rcpnnt with unvarying
accuracy the name and ago of the de-
ceased with tho mourners at tho
funeral. Hut he was a complete (ool.
Out of the lino of burials ho had but
niB Idea and could not glo an Intel-
lijriUlo reply to n siuglu iiuestion nor
bo trusted to feed himself.
These phenomenal Instances may bo
matched by tho Sussex farm-laborer
(fcorgc Watson ns wo lind recorded In
Hon s Table Hook. Watson could
neither read nor write jet ho was
wont to ncrform wondrous feats of
mental calculation and his memory for
events soumed to bo almost faultless
'Hut tho most extraordinary circum-
stance" says Hone "is tho power he
possessed ot recollecting theuvent nf
every uay irom an cany pcrioa ot nis
life. Upon being asked what day of tho
weok a given day of tho month oc-
curred he immediately names It and
also mentions whero ho was and what
was the state of tho weather. A gen-
tleman who had kent a diary put
many questions to him and his an-
swers wore Invariably correct."
Uf a similar kind is the memory for
which Daniel M'Uartney has become
famous In tho United States. Tho
strange story of this man's achieve-
ments is told by Mr. Hcnklo in tho
Journal of Speculative I'Mlo'ophv.
M'Carlnev. in 1869 declared that he
could remember tho day of tho week for
jmy date from January 18'7 that Is
from tho tlmo when ho was nine years
and Jour months ild forty-two and
a half tears. He has often been tested.
and so far as Mr. Heukle'it account
goes had not failed to tell his questioner
"wliatttay it was" anu to give somo
information about thu weather and
nbout his own whereabouts ami dollies
on any one of the liftocn thousand or
more dates that might bo named. When
Mr. Kenklo first met this man of marv
elous memory ho was employed in tho
ofllco of Hon. T. K. Hukcnbrod editor
of the Salem llcvublican. whero noth
ing better could bo found for M'Cart-
ney to lo titan "turn mo wncoi oi tno
printing-press on two da) a of each
week." On tho Jirst formal examina-
tion this man underwent his answers
were tested by reference to tho lilo of
it newspaper which gave tho day of tho
week along with tho date. In one enso.
his statement was disputed for the day
he named was not tho satno as that
given by the paper; but on further In-
quiry it was found that tho newspaper
WM wrung tor mo printer nau uinuc a
mistake. Short-band noter of thu con-
versation were taken at subsequent in-
terviews. The report of theio is very
curious reading lake the following

Tho samo may bo said of scores of
men whoso ono rich gift of momory
has brought them Into prominence.
No ono has claimed any high Intellec-
tual rank for tho renowned "Memory

nt two sittings in tho presence of two
well-known gentlemen n correct plan

lobonc St. Ann and St. Martin; which

wards. Ho did this at Lord Nelson's

In tho presence of two noblemen."
Turning now from oxamplcs llko
tho foregoing which havo been given
to show that a great memory docs not
argue in all cases any unusual mental
power in other directions let us look
at somo of tho "great pooplo" whoso
"great memories'' Illustrato tho cor-
rectness of Sir Arthur Helps' dictum.
Itunninc over n lonir list of ot.unplcs
which tho writer has prepared for his
own uso In the s vldv of this subject he
has been struck with tho fact that tho
last three or four centuries appear to
much greater advantago In this roviow
than any similar period which prcccdod
them. This after ail is not surpris-
ing when tho circumstances of mod
ern llfo nro carefully considered; but
it is not in accordance with common
opinion. Thcro Is a notion abroad
that tho power of memory has declined
slnco the invention of writing and
especially slnco thu invention ot print-
ing and tho universal spread of cheap
books and newspapers. Nothing could
be more mistaken than such a suppo-
sition. If wo do not nowadays uso tho
memory as tho only registry of facts
within our reach wo do uso tho mem-
ory even moro than tho ancients for
tho simple reason that our knowlcdgo
travels over nn immeasurably wider
area wo havo moro to remember and
as civilization and culture advance a
good memory becomes moro and moro
needful for tuo work of life; tho gener
al level of Intelligence is being raised
and mental power is developed from
ago to ago. In this general advance
ment and growth memory has Its

tional bardi whose songs and recita-
tions "sometimes last a wholo day"
can not surely Ira a whit behind if In-
deed they do not surpass tho prodigies
of curly ages. Wo arc often reminded
of Greek gentlemen who knew their
Homer by heart. In tho days whon Ho-
mer occupied tho Ucld almost alone and
theru was ery little else to learn. Hut
what are their exploits by tho side of
men like Joseph Justus Sc.tligcr who
"committed Homer to memory In
twentv-ona davit nnd tho nholo
Greek poets In tfireo months?" Casau-
bon says of SoiHger: "There was no
subject on which any ono could desire
Instruction wlticlt ho a.s not capablo
of giving. Ho had road nothing Iilch
hu did not forthwith remember. So
cxtcnslvo and accurate was his ac-
quaintance with languages that if dur-
ing his lifetime ho find made but this
single acquisition it would hao ap-
Slnco tho rctival of learning in Hu-
ropu there havo been scores jea hun-
dreds of scholars who hao known
"their Homer" by heart and a thou-
sand other things besides. Hishop
Snundcrson old Isaao Walton toils
us could repeat all the odes of Hor-
ace all Tully's Olliccs. nnd the best
part of Juvenal and Persltts. Killer
tho mathomallclan nnd Liibnltz tho
philosopher could recite the .Kncid
from beginning to end. In their day
Porson KImsIuy Parr and Wakefield
liehl the foremost plate as scholars and
all of course h.ul rare memories but
the palm mutt be git en to Porson
of whom endless stories aro told. He-
foro ho went to Kton ho was able to
repeat almost thu wholo of Horace
Virgil Homer Cicero and LIvy. When
as a practical joke n Hchool-fcllow
slipped thu wrong book Into Porsnn's
hand just as he was about to read and
translate tho boy wa not dUeon-
ccrtud but went on to read from his
memory ai if nothing Ind occurred.
Iii later life his performances ap-
proached the miraculous. It would re-
quire nil our spato to giioany fair Idea
ot them for ho not only knew all tho
grout Greek poets anil proso writers
pretty well by heart but could reulto
u hole pi ivs of Shakespeare or com-
plete books from Paradise Iost Pope's
Itapo of tho Lock Hirrow'a sermons
scenes from Footc Edgoworth's 11 ay
on Irish Hulls scores of pages from
Gibbon or lUpln. Ho is also said to
havo bocn able to repeat tho wholo of
tho Moral Tale of tho Dean of Hadnjoz
and Smollett's Hod crick Handom from
tho lirst page to tho last.
Gilbert Wakefield's memory was
also ot tho glgantlo ordor but It will
not bear comparison with Porson's.
Theru wcro few passages In Ilomor or
Pindnr which ho could not rccltu at n
moment's notlco; Virgil and Honico he
knew perfectly; und he could recite en-
tirn books from the Old and Now
Testament without halting or (ailing
in a single crse. Tlicro was also

until ono day ho mat with an old fellow-student
at Uonn who when ho
mado a quotation would mention
book ode and crse rcmatking that
he did not regard any one a knowing
Horace properly unless he could do
that Mr Hruco accordingly set to
work at Horace again and it was not
long beforo he could namo the exact
place occupied by a line in any ot thu
famous odea. It would be hard to be-
lieve that Athenian lads could boat the

of tho last hundred yoars wo havo ex-
amples that hao never been surpassed

Sir William Jones knew thirteen lan
guages well nnd could read with com-
parative ease in thirty other. John

likely havo anticipated tho names ot
tno of tho most remarkable linguists

Horrow and Ednaru Henry Palmer.
When Horrow was nt St. Petersburg
he published a little book culled Tar-
gum in which he gavo translations in
proso and poetry from thirty different
languages. Besides speaking the
nativotonguoot every i-.uropcan nation
Palmer was so perfect a master of Ara-
bic Persian Hindustani Turkish and
tho languago of tho gypsies that even
natives were sometimes deceived ns to
his nationality. Mr. Lcland says that
ono day In Paris Palmer "entered Into
conversation with a Zouave or Ttirco
a native Arab. After a whllo the man
said: 'Why do you wear theso clothes?'
'Why. Iiow should I dress?' exclaimed
Palmer. 'Dress like what ou arc!'

Viscount Stransrford may be placed
in tho satno category with these; and
tho "learned blacksmith" Elihu Hur-
ritt whose friends claim for him that
he knew all the lantruuzcs of Kuroix

not touch tho hlchcst limit of linguistic
skill and power of memory. Tho most

CATS IN EGYPT.

The Egyptians though they may no-
worship tho llttlo nnimnl now-a-days

relic perhaps of an old-world sancti-
ty. They aro to bo seen every where
not one nt n time but in half doens
and in thu less frequented parts of tho
town as many as twenty miy bo seen
in a wastu corner holding an afternoon
conversasdoiic. When thircforn the
British shells knocked down the houses
of Alexandria and the Inmates lied
the cits found themselves homeless
and friendless and they gathered to-
gether In pathetic assemblies upon tho
debris of the shattered walls How
gaunt and dreadful they wcro! Chart-
tiblu folks used to collect straps for
them but the sufferings of the creat-
ures must havo been very groat and
doubtless If tho truth wcrj known
very fow of the Alexandrian cats lived
through tho momentous crisis of Brit-
ish occupation without sharp apprehen-
sions of cannibalism. All day long
they prowled among tho rubbish heaps
of fallen masonry or sat about In
groups pathetically muto and most un-
naturally regardless of pascrs-by. In
Stiakim also they aru utterly callous to
their surroundings but theru tho simi-
larity ceasos For in their case Indif-
ference Is begotten of a preposterous
prosperity. So consequential are they
that they do not movo out of the road
and thu Arab when ho stumbles over
them swears nt them but never
molests them. Tho bar.vrs an full ot

Indeed such an endlcs multitude of
them Is enough to break the heart of
even an English terrier. But physical-
ly they have deteriorated into the mer

THE LOCAL PAPEIL
The Valuable and Frequently Unappre-
ciated RerTleet It Renders to the Com-
munity In Which It Is rnbtlthad.
Tho bcncflU conferred by n well con-
ducted local paper aro seldom appre-
ciated by tho pooplo who enjoy them.
Whether wo consider It as a. promoter
of business prosperity or as a moral
Mid cdtioattonal institution its real
vnlno Is much greater than that usually
attributed to it by those who ought to
vnluo It higher. No other btisi- js es-
tablishment contributes as much toward
tho upbuilding of a town nnd no other
business man Is called upon to do ns
much gratuitous work In tho Interest of
his neighbors nnd the public ns lis
editor. Tho amount otfrco advertising
dono in tho local paper in tho course of
n jcar Is simply enormous. Every
church festival every school exhibition
tho meetings of thosowlngcirclcs mite
societies masonic and other lodges
villago ofllcials church nnd school
boards aud promiscuous gatherings of
all kinds are duly announced without
charge. If such announcements were
paid for even nt half rates tho pub-
lisher's income would be materially in-
creased. Hut theso nro nothing as com-
Iiared with tho free advcrtMng In bo-
lalf of projected railroads turnpikes
and publlo Improv ements in general.
Fow men it seems nro capablo of
correctly estimating the obligations of
the community to thu local paper and
its editor. The masses accept tho bene-
fits and tho services as mattcte of
course. When ho has pnid the sub-
scription price tho avcrago subscriber
appears to think the account balanced.
Indeed thcro nro those who appear to
think they aro doing an extremely gen-
erous thing to pay for their paper nt
alt. They seem to think thu editor
ought to bo grateful for his proper
dues. They regard tho paving of their
subscription ns the doing of acharitablo
deed and this llko other charities is
generally performed vo-y grudgingly
I hey do not think of tlia beneficial ef-
fects upon the business Interests of the
place. In which every member of tho
community share produced by thu
publication of tho local paper. They
do not stop to consider what would
bo the ellcct if its publication were
A very llttlo thought Is however
Mifllclcnt to convince any sensible per
son that tho support of tlio local paper
is from a purely business standpoint
n most profitable investment for tho
community at largo. Compare for
Instance tho amount of capital Invest-
ed in the mercantile business of a town
with that invested in tho local papers.
and noto how Inconsiderablo tho latter
Is; the ratio is perhaps one hundred to
one. Then compare tho amount an
nually spent at tho stores with that
paid to support the local papers and
again noto the iuslgniiicanco of tho
latter amount; tho terms of the propor-
tion are even moro diverse who will
say that tho comparison Is unfavorable
to tho nowspapcrs?
'J ho comparison docs not fall cither
when applied to moral and education-
al IntitutIons. A community that
supports two or three papers is gener-
ally found supporting perhaps a hun-
dred churches and schools. Compare
ho cost of maintaining all these insti-
tutions including the salaries of
preachers and teachers with tno cost
of supporting tho local papers llicn
compare the moral and educational re-
sults ono side vvith the other and it is
pretty safe to tay that the result will
not bo unfavorable to tho properly
conducted paper. (And right here it
is proper to say that a fair and just
comparison must exclude all immoral
publications. A paper tho moral
tono of which is low is no more
worthy of toleration or encourage-
ment in a community or In a homo
than any other Institution orindivldual
tainted with moral leprosy.)
Even man engaged In business or
In any way interested in thu material
prosperity of his town and vicinity or
111 tho educational affairs of his com-
munity or in tho moral purity of so-
ciety in his neighborhood is under
great obligations to his local paper
and should giro it a liberal support
not ns a charity but as a duty to him-
self to his family and to his nolghbors
and as n wise investment of his money.

Play and Mr Pro Hono Publico I have
inndo tho world a fur moro desirable
place In which to livo than it would
otherwise havo been.
My co-laborer Mr Tax-Payer Is an
old contributor to tho paper hut he is
not really a lax-payer- Ho uses this
signature In order to conceal his identi-
ty just as I use tho namo Veritas. Wo
havo n great dual of fun over this at
our regular annual reunions whero wo
talk about all of our affairs.
Old Settler 1 a young tenderfoot
who oamo hero last spring and tried to
obtain a livelihood by selling an Inde-
structible lamp chimnoy. Ho did well
for several weeks by going to thu dif-
ferent residences aud throwing one of
his class chimneys on tho floor with
cousiderabla force to show that It
would not break. Hu did a good busi-
ness till one day ho mado a mUt-iko.
Instead of getting hold nt his exhibi-
tion chimney ho nicked out ono of Iho
stock and butted it beyond recognition
Since that ho has been writing artioIcK
in violet Ink relative to old times aud
Jmblishing them over tbo signature of

Play is a retired monto man and Pro
Bono Publico is our genial and urb&no
I am a very prollfio wrlWr but all
inyworri is noitnrnwt a vcnai Bne
giving ottrrency to such fearless earn-
est truths as I make uso of.
I am also tho man who says bravo
things In tho columns of tho papers
when tho editor M-ssclf Joes not daro
to say thorn bee ..so ho Is afraid ho
will bo killed. Hut what racks Veritas
tho bold and frco? Docs ho flinch or
quail? Not n flinch; not a nunll.
Holdly ho (lings asldo his base fears
and with bitter vituperation he nssalis
tlioso ho dislikes and nttaoks with re-
sounding blows his own personal in-
cmlcs fearlessly signing tils name
Veritas to tho article so that thoso
who yearn to kill him may know just
who ho Is.
What would tho world do without
crltas? In tho hands of n horde of
journalists who havo nothtng to do but
attend to their business left with no
nnon vmous friend to whom they can
fly when momentous occasions arise.
When tho sound ndvlco nnd better
judgment of an otitsldo friend Is need-
ed their condition would Indeed bo a
pitiable one. Hut ho will never desert
us. Ho is ever nt hand prompt to say
over his nom tic plume what ho might
hositato to any under his own name
for fear that ho might go homo with a
battle of Gettysburg under ench eyo
and n nose llko a voicanio eruption
lie cheerfully attacks overy thing and
every body and then goes nway till
tho light tho funeral and the libel suit
aru over. Then lie returns nnd assails
the grim monster Wrong. Ho pro-
poses Improvements and tho following
wcok a bitter reply comes from Tax-
Payer. Pro Hono Publico tho retired
thrvc-rard-iiHintclst says: "Let us
havo tho proposed Improvement re-
gardless of cost." Ihcii tho evnlcnl
U. L. Sco (who Is really tho janitor nt
tho blind asylum) grumbles about use-
less expense nnd Anally draws out
from tho teeming brain of Constant
Header a long liivbby essay written
on red-ruled leaves cut out of an old
meat-mat kct ledger written econom-
ically on both sides with light blue ink

say' introduces under tho most trying
circumstances such cmdo jet original

HU csay Is not so much the vclilclo of
thought as it Is tho accommodation
train for fragments of his old school
declamations to ride on.
But to Veritas wo owo much. I say
this becauso I know what I am talking
about for am I not old Veritas him-
self? Haven't I been writing things
for tho papers ever slnco papers wero
pttuiishcdr Am 1 not tnu man who
for years has been a stranger to fear?
Havo I not again and again called the
Congressman tho capitalist the
clergyman tho voter anu tho philan-
thropist cv cry thing I could lay my
tongue to and then fought mosquitoes
in the deep recesses of tho swamp
while the editor remained nt tho ofllco
and took tlif credit for vv rittng what I
had given him for nothing? Has not
many a paper built up a name nnd a
libel suit upon what I havo written
nnd yet I am almost unknown? When
people ask Who is Veritas and where
dooshollvo? no one seems to know.
Ho is up seven (lights ot stairs in a hot
room that smells ot old clothes and
neglected thoughts. Far from tho
"madding throng." ns Congressman
Header has so truly said I sit alone
with no personal property but an over-
worked costume a strong lovo for
truth nnd a shawl-strap full of sug-
gestions to tho over-estimated man
who edits thu paper.
So I battle on with only tho meager
and llpa-blttcn row nrd of seeing my
namo In print "anon" as Constant
Roader would say. All I havo to fork
over to posterity Is my good name
which I beg lotvo to sign here.

HOW MONEY GROWd.
What 31ay lie Done with a Nmall Sum
When riafely luvrated.
Among a lot of old rubbish has been
found n warrant or order upon thu
United States treasury for tho pay
ment to John Yesterday of $1715.90
dated February It 1791 "with interest
at six per cent.' Thero is no doubt
nbout its gonuiness nnd none of tho
authority ot the drawer who wns at
that tlmo Huglstcr. Tho Government
acknowledges tho obligation 'ilhe
only question is as to tho parties en-
titled to the piymeut. Iho small
amount of thu warrant is increased by
more than nlncty-threo years interest
nnd is thereby swelled to tho hand-
some sum ot $11I8&02. If this inter-
est were ((impounded It would reach
nearly ono million. Every ten years
nt that ratu tho principal would havo
doubled so that tho comparatively in-
significant sum nf $1745.90 would
have been in February 14 188.) tho
magnificent fortune of SJ9J900.80.
Tills exhibits what may bo dono with a
small sum In ninety "years of invest-
ment and reinvestment at tho legal
r.ito of interest. In another ninety
venrs of compounding tho $1715.90
would bo nearly ? 168.000.000. Tho
house of William Penn that stands In
tho Park was built longer ngithan
twice ninety years and tho money
that It cost to build in 1081 if w
treated would now be a thousand mill
Ions of dollars.
These facts brought homo to us by
the neglect of Yesterday In not draw-
ing Ids warrant on thu morrow tcacli
tho moral of small savings and careful
investment. Commencing early In life
putting nway something every year
and luvosting and reinvesting tho in-
come will mako almost nuy man
rich who lives thu ordinary span
of existence. Fivo hundred dollars In
seventy years will compound Into iil
001. '1 lilts Is tho secret of Inrgu fort-
unes left by liumblu men to the stir
priso of their friends and relations.
Careful Investments nt ordinary rates
of Interest roll up nt lirst slowly
but in later years In immciiso propor-
tions. The desire to grow rich fist
leads men to despise thu safer methods
und dlsstsUr sweeps away on thu In-
stant n cumulations that the slower
but surer rules of arithmetical pro-
gression would havo mado fortunes
Thoru never was a timu when cau-
tion was morv Important than tli
present in such matters Money Is so
abundant ami tho rates of interest
ronsuqurntly so low upon securities
beyond question that Iho temptation lo
embark In perilous cntcprlscs is very
grunt. There is now a rngo for now
( orporatlniis and several Hru starting
everyday Thu Legislature has pr

that tho supply hardly keeps up with

nre being formed to do every thing tin
4 dor thu sun and their stock is eagerly
sought after on tho belief that the (11 v I

We havo had all sort of llnnmhl
crazes and desire to utter a word ol
warning about tho corporation crao
which now prevails. Go slow is our

Many seem to think that they havo

How te Cannterbatanre the Kffocte ol
Thin ftystem of Agriculture.
If the soil is continually cropped no
matter how rich it may be a timo will
arrivo when it will becomo barren
whether that period bo near or distant.
Nor Is it wise to wait until thero nre
evidences of a loss of fertility ns It
then requires time for recuperation
but the work of restoration should be
gin at once. In fact n farm should
always bo improving In fertility. Thcro
Is no timo but that It Is cither losing or
gaining.and tho ratio of lossorgain de
pends upon tho Kind 01 crops and tlio
manner In which the farm Is cultivated
A farm ban not be immediately restored
to fertility for even when an 'stniimltcd
amount nf fertilizer Is applied humus
must be formed which requires time.
Manure Is tho best material for worn-
out farms assisted by green crops
plowed under but this mode of im-
provement requires labor that many
will not bestow yet there nro sltnplo
and cosy methods that cost but very
little If practiced. Every farmer can
afford to sow ryo on his corn Hold nftcr
the corn has been removed. If tho
temptation to cut the ryo U resisted
and a good coating of limo applied lu
tho spring with tho ryo turned under
ll.ero will bo ample material for the
formation of humus in the soil. Then
fertilizers may bo used frculy with
advantago and tho soil bo tssisted to
retain Its fertility nnd produce larger
Hut practlco of old usages prevents
tho farmers from taking advantage ot
the short growing period between tho
harvesting of corn nud tho beginning
of frost. Ilia difficulty is that they do
not remove the corn and fodder as soon
ns they should. Wo do not understand
why farmers allow tho shocks to re-
main In thu Held to bo husked during
tho damp season of Into fall or tho cold
of winter when thoy might moro con-
veniently haul thu corn to tho barn to
bo husked tinder shelter and therdiy
lcavo tho Hold clear and ready for thu
plow. The v should remove tho corn
as soon as ft U cut put the plow nt
work harrow and sow to ryo and
leave the Held till spring when tlio ryu
should be turned under as soon as It
Is jsbout two feet high. 'I his work
done regularly overy year will greatly
Increase tho fertility of the soil aud do
much to counterbalance tho eflects nf
continual cropping but It will be best
as we stated to use manure or artifi-
cial fertilizer on the land overy season.
