TRICK CF THE FUNNEL.
Blowing Out a Light Through It Is.
Easy if You Know How.
To Mow (.tit n cnndlp, using n funnel
to blow through, seems n ridiculously
ensy thing to do. Hut nsk nny friend
of yours to try it mid see what hap
pens. Ten to one he will try to blow
through the cup so ns to force his
breath through the narrow neck of the
funnel. As this is not nn ensy thing
to do lie will flatten mouth mid nose
in Ills endeavors, while trying to force
Ids face Into the small cup. Then ho
will reverse the funnel and blow into
the neck, and when he does not suc
ceed In extinguishing the light he will
blow harder and harder and finally
he will admit that he Is beaten.
In blowing through the neck of the
funnel he has directed the funnel di
rectly at tho light, so that the flame Is
exuetly opposite to the place where the
nock of funnel Joins tho cup. V'ou, on
taking the funnel from him, incline the
funnel so that Its upper edge Is on n
level with the light. You blow gently.
Tho light Is extinguished at the first
puff without nny of the desperate ef
fort which your friend put forth.
If you ponder n moment you will
realize why you succeeded and why
your friend failed, nis breath on en
tering the cup or funnel spread In all
directions, and tho tiny current of air
was dispersed upward and downward,
so thnt, ns he neatly leveled tho center
of tho funnel at the flnme, no current
of air over reached It.
You, on tho contrary, hold the upper
wall of tho funnel on a level with the
flame. The current of air started by
your breuth, on reaching the edge
of the wall, streamed onward In the
direction given It by tho restraining
wail and on reaching the flame snuffed
It out Boston American.
BRINGING DOWN A PICTURE.
Henner Had a Way of Making the
Louvre Officials See the Light.
It is a pity that Henner is dead. He
had found on excellent means to force
the conservators at the Louvre to bring
down the pictures that bo Judged had
been placed too high. He made use
of this' method In the case of "Su
sunue an Bain" ("Susanna nt the
Bath") of Tintoretto.
Twenty years ago this masterpiece
was hung iu the gallery four meters
from the floor.
nenner was furious at this injustice.
But he did not permit his auger to ap
pear, ne contented himself with com
ing from time to time iu the morning
before the visitors were numerous in
the halls and In the most courteous,
tone requesting the keepers to furnish
bim a large double ladder.
The keepers referred the matter to
the conservators, saying thnt this lad
der was asked by M. Henner, and they
were impressed with the necessity of
responding to the wish of tho old mas

when nt the top, remained a quarter
of an hour absorbed in the contempla
tion of the marvelous painting.
He then descended as phlegmatlcally
and, with a Que smile, said In bis Al
satian Jargon: "Mercl pour Pejelle. Je
suis dres gonteut!" ("Thanks for tho
ladder. I am much pleased!")
He went through this maneuver half
a dozen times at intervals.
At last the conservators understood.
They had "Susunne au Bain" unhook
ed and gave it a place of honor In the
square salon, where It Is now. Crl de
Tax n Hats.
Not only have hats at various times
been subject to taxation, but have
even been made the subject of special
laws. Thus in Henry VII.'s reign none
was allowed to sell hats at a larger
price than 20 pence or caps for more
than 2s. 8d.
Some compensation, however, for
this interference with free trade could
be found iu the fact that in 1571 on
Sundays and holidays every one above
seven years of age was required to
wear a cap of wool of English make

The Rabbit's Danger 8ignal.
So long ns it sits still the ordinary
rabbit is almost indistinguishable iu a
field of bracken, stubble or dry grass,
but us soon as it begins to run toward
Its burrow the white patch on its tall

nt first seems like a failure of adapta
tion, has its spocial function it acts
as a danger signal to the young rabbits
and shows them the way by which
they cau escape from the threatened
danger. London Mall.
