Which It Is Reflected.
[Chere is scarcely anythi;u in nature
it exerts the fascination over every
e alike than does an echo, and com
mn as it may become there is always
'(1ing of mystery about it that holds
as with a charn. Of course we all
ow that it is ruerely the rellection
a sound from some object. as the
le of a house or a rock or a hill, but
:en we cannot tell how far away the
ject is that causes it. Ilere is a way
tell every time:
Iolding a watch in your hand, shout
single syllable, as "Ho!" or "Ha!"
d count tI' number of seconds from
time you shout till the sound comes
ek to you. Now, sound travels at
rate of 1.125 feet a second, so the
mber of seconds that elapse multi
ed by 1,125 will give the distance in
t traveled by the voice in going to
! object and back to you again, and
e-half of that number will be the
inber of feet away that object Is.
course the object may be only a
v hundred feet away, in which case
sound will come back in less than
sccond, but you may determine the
tance, nevertheless, by calling a
igle syllable-"Ha!"-and calling it
ain as you hear the echo, not before
after It, but just with it.
Vith a little practice you can do this.
ieat the call ten or twelve times,
anting the seconds between the first
i1 and the last echo. Suppose, for
ample, that the time Is seven sec
ds and that you called the syllable
i times. Then each echo took seven
iths of a second, and the distance,
ind in the same way as before, is
out 304 feet.-Exchange.

not accept the word of the builders

evidence submitted by the city
ilding department. Their own ex
ts make an examination. Such an
amination Is made not at the behest
politicians or in the Interest of a

tose reports must be exact, detailed

Earrings have always been among

eed among the Persians, Babyloni

men as well as women. They were
vays worn by Greek women from

Medici, whose ears were pierced for
Sreception of earrings. Pliny tells

Dlace of thitidet, as the natives call it,
the peak of Kameruns, as the whites
call It, is the highest point on the west
ern side of the Africati continent. The
first view the voyager gets of it who,
coming from the northward, has been
coasting for weeks along low shores
and up the stagnant rivers, fringed
with mangrove swamp, is a thing, no
man can ever forget. Suddenly, right
up out of the sea, the great mountain
rises to Its 13,700 feet, while close at
hand, to westward, towers the lovely
island mass of Fernando Po to its
10,190 feet, and great as is its first
charm every time you see it it becomes
greater, although it is never the same.
Five times I have been in the beautiful
bay at its foot and have never seen it
twice alike. Sometimes it is wreathed
with indigo black tornado clouds, some
times crested with snow, sometimes
standing out hard and clear, as though
made of metal, and sometimes softly
gorgeous, with green, gold, purple and
pink vapors tinted by the sunset.
A Trying Reform.
A Presbyterian clergyman of New
I York with tyro popular daughters has
discovered a r-aw way to end the vis
its of their beaus at a seemly hour-a
plan which might appeal to lay fami
lies as well. For a number of years
it has been a custom of this good man
to hold evening worship after supper,
always concluding the prayers with a
short discourse. Things went very
well until the daughters began to re
ceive the attentions of young men and
begged off or stole away to make their
evening toilets. Then the minister
changed the devotional hour until 10
in the evening. This reform created
an upheaval, but the father Insisted,
and at the stroke of 10 the visiting
young men are now left one alterna
tive-either to leave or join with the
family in prayer-and it has proved a
severe test of their devotion for the
daughters when those not prayerfully
inclined stick It out, sermon and all.

The Good Fenow.
The treasurer of a church temper
ance society told at a temperance meet
ing a dramatic story.
"A woman entered the barroom," he
said, "and advanced quietly to her
husband, who sat drinking with three
other men. She placed a covered dish
on the table and said:
"' Thinkin' ye'd be too busy to come
home to supper, Jack, I've fetched It to
"And she departed.
"The man laughed awkwardly. He
invited his friends to share the meal
with him. Then he removed the cover
from the dish. - .
"The dish was empty. It contained
a slip of paper that said:
"'I hope you will enjoy your supper.
It is the same as your wife and chil
dren have at home."'-Life.
Coffee-tea is the common beverage
of the natives of Java and Sumatra.
When required for Infusion the coffee
leaves are gathered fresh from the
trees and are dried in a pan over a
slow fire until they are light brown.
They are then put into a teapot, boiling
water is poured over them, and the in
fusion is drunk with milk and sugar.
IIt seems the general opinion that cof
fee should come in contact with metal
as little as possible. The Viennese peo
ple prefer a glass bottle to a canister
for storing, and Braziinsn use earth

Antelopes Chooee the Open.
The antelope lives always in open

driven into timber cover or thickets
of brush, but will literally turn about

rather than be forced into cover. If
they are ever obliged to pass by or
through such places for- food and wa
ter, they take a great deal of time to

An Odd Verdiet.
A fury in Lindsey, Lincolnshire, Eng
land, after being out some time on a
case of alleged false pretenses, return
ed to court and said, "We can't bring
him In guilty and don't like to say he
is -not guilty." They were sant back
and in fifteen minutes reached this ver
dict, "We find him guilty, but not with
intent" The prisoner was discharged.
"Mamma," said five-year-old Margie,
"I'll make a bargain with you."
"What kind of a bargain. dear?",ask

diplomat. "I'll not tell any one yoc
