Professor Blerordt, of Frankfort, has invented a machine to record the beating of the human pulse. The arm is placed in a kind of cradle, which keeps it steady; a lever rests by one end on the artery, and at every beat a pencil, on the opposite end, marks a cylinder of paper. If the pulse be regular, a regular zigzag line is produced; if irregular, the line is full of breaks and jerks.
This is a very hardy sort, of a dark purple color. In other respects, similar to the above, and may be treated in the same manner.
These are classed by botanists as varieties of the Black Cap species (Rubus occi-dentalis), and they succeed with few exceptions over as wide a range of country, and in as great a variety of soils. The old Purple Cane Raspberry (fig. 130) has long been one of the standard varieties for home use, and in some sections it has been quite extensively grown for market. The plant is very hardy, a rampant grower, producing few suckers, being mainly propagated from the tips of the young canes.
The fruit is rather small and brittle, but of good quality, and is produced in great abundance.

It possesses more than any other the true flavor of the raspberry; it is full one week earlier than any we know of; it is hardy; it is productive; it carries well to the market, and is always saleable. Only give it the same attention bestowed upon others, and our word for it you will agree with us that none excels it in the earliness of its ripening, in its delicious flavor, or its popularity in the market. After cultivating it for thirty years, this is our opinion of the Early Purple Cane. - -German-town Telegraph.
