Live Electric Plants.
There are In all about 50 species
ef electrical fish, but the electrical
properties of only five or six have
been studied In detail. The best
known are various species of torpedo,
belonging to the skate family found In
the Mediterranean and .Adriatic seas;
the gymnotusfi, an eel found in the
region of the Orinoco In South Ameri
ca; the znalapteruras, the raasb or
thunderer fish of the Arabs, a native
of the Kile, the Niger, Senegal and oth

A bright ten-year-old girl, whose
father was addicted to amateur pho
tography, attended a trial at court the
othe day for te first time. This was
her account .of the judge's charge:
- "The judge made a "long speech to the
.- Jury of 12 men, and then sent them off
Into a little dark room to develop."
Dirt Obscures Light of Lamp.
When the lamps become old and
more or less dirty between cleaning
periods the emitted light falls off about
-25 .per cent, according to the Electrical
World. Consequently.-for a desired
foot-candle Illumination, the rating of
tha lamps must be about S3 per cent
higher than that found necessary from
the calculations based on the efficiency
f new', clean lamps. .
Besides, Few Believe.
Jud Tunklna. says a man who brags

Origin ef Widow1 Caps.
Widows wore caps, says one authori
ty, at the time of the Roman conquest
,of England, because they shaved their
.'heads as a sign of mourning; as wo
$nan would, not allow sherself, to be
seen with a hold head, she made herself
a. pretty cap. Though the uevesslty for
It has long since passed any, the cap
sail remains. Why do we wear heels
on our shoes? Because the sandal
like footgear of olden times was not
adapted to borseback'rldlng, and Avhen
the high hoots were Introduced heels
w vrere.put on for the purpose of glvi-g
the foot a good hold on tlie stirrup.
Is milk condensed? MMk Is con
densed by the evaporation of the wa
tei it contains, after it has been,
sterilized. Sugar is added to some
brands, and Is not added to others,
and the unsweetened is known as
"evaporated" milk to distinguish It
from the sweetened. Copper tanks
holding LOOO gallons onnore are used
In the sterilization of the milk, and
the water is evaporated in huge
Smoke as a Lightning Rod.
It would seem that a building 9,000
Jeet above the sea level should be
protected by lightning rods, but the
astronomical observatory at Mount
Etna has pot, and does not, -need such
protection. The observatory Is near
tne summit of the volcano, and the
stream of -vapor constantly rising' from
the crater acts as a natural conductor,
draining the electricity out of the
clouds, so that lightning is seldom seen
Oil in North America.
Oil was known to the Indians and
"used by them for medicinal purposes.
Jt was first obtained" from the surface
of creeks and as a product of salt
wells. Edwin L. Brake drilled the first
oil well in the United States In August,
1855, near Oil City, Pa. The first dis
covery of oil in 'Canada was. made In
1857 near Petrolia, OnL
Freedom Is the word that la many
sided. There are those who boaBt of
freedom of conscience who seem to
Interpret It simply as with that of
other people. There are those who
seem to fancy that their rights as cit

trampling upon rights of anybody else
who chances to stand In their, way.
The Gaelic language Is the orig
inal and historical language .of tha
people of Ireland, though most of
that country's Inhabitants speak
English. Gaelic Is now taught In
the national schools. Catholic parish
schools and colleges In Ireland, as well
as at Harvard university, Notre
Dame university and the Catholic Uni
versity of America at Washington.
There has been a revival of the use
of Gaelic through the efforts of the
Society for the Preservation of the
Gaelic Language. .

Drum With Harmonies.
Musicians find the drum an unsatis
factory instrument for lack of harmon
ic overtones. From India comes the
description of a drum the parchment
head of which Is loaded with an ad
herent composition containing finely
divided Iron. Such composition lies In
a central circle. Around the edge a
second ring-shaped membrane Is se
cured and the effect of the loading is
to produte good harmonic overtones.
