"Victor Schirlchcr, tho eminent
(writer, politician, and republican
.l&Uauturoplst who died lately In
J.-'maoe, after un honorable life of
nearly ninety years, was always noted
fur the rig d sincerity ot bis princi
ples and his acts. A story Is told in
tbe Parisian press ot his boyhood
which illustrates this characteristic
ia bim. As a child, he was once re
ranting to Franco from a tr p to
Brussels with his mother.
She had obtained In Belgium cer
tain valuable laces which she could
aslly carry out ot sight, and she re
warked to tbo boy that sbo was not
uolng to declare them to the French
But, mother," said Victor, ''not
to declare them would be . rotig!"
"Never you mind," she said; "it
would be foolish to declare them.
ITne duty on thorn Is enormous, and
the inspectors will nevor know any
thing about them. I shall say noth--tng
When tho custom-house man came,
Mme. .Sch'ilcher declared that she
had nothing dutiable. The Inspector
thought bo saw a shocked look in tbe
v boy's face.
What is it?" said ho to Victor.
''Osir," said tbo boy, "1 think
-mother has 6ome Belgian laces that
'soe aught to pay duty on'."
The laces were produced and the
duty paid. Mme. Schiulcher, instead
of l!ng angry, declared that she was
Iitou'i of liavlDg so honest and truth-
-.ful a boy.
Not only did ho never learn to lie,
"taut ho had a quick eyo fordlshonesty

No doubt sctonco will some day
settle the question whether It Is pos
slble or not omIIiIo for men to fly.
Meanwhile the road to real knowl
edge In this, as In every other dlrec.
tlon, must bo that whl h Is opened
by experiment. Theory may suggest
but trial only can pror. Among tho
most promising experiments In flight
that have lately been undertaken aro
those of Mr. Llllcuthal. a German.
who has devised an apparatus by tlio
aid or winco, on a modest scale, uo
can Imitate the soaring of a bird.
Mr. Llllcuthal begins by observing
that a wind blowing over a plain
tends slightly to rise, the average
upward Inclination being about thrco
degrees, lie ascribes this to tho
friction of the moving air against tho
ground which causes the lower air to
be heaped up. A bird could not
soar, ho thinks, but for tho uplifting
power of the wind
Having made this observation, Mr.
Llllcnthat contrived a .system ot
wings which would enable him to
tako advantage of tho buoyant power
of moving air. Tho instantaneous
photographs of himself In the net of
snaring near Itcrlln look somewhat
like pictures of a gigantic butterfly.
His wings, made or strong silk
stretched on frames, aro slightly
concave underneath, and their total
spread is equal to about 1(10 square
Ho docs not undertake to flap
them, which Indeed ho could not do
ns they are llxcd in their outspread
position. Having properly adjusted
tho apparatus ho selects a slight etc
vatlon, as tho slope of a small hill,
run a few stops against tho wind,
and then Jumps up into tho a r. Tho
' wings Immediately begin to sustain
him and slide along upon tho
, ail, is It were, slowly sinking toward
the ground. Ho has succeeded In
viiu(j uoiai us vv ivvu iiviu uv
lust as a skater acquires wltn
practice the ability to guldo his
course in Intrlcato turnings; and to
icrforni feats that would have
scorned Impossible to him when ho
tlrst put on skates, so Mr. Llllcnthal
has gradually gained a considerable
degree of mustory over his soaring
apparatus, so that by shitting his
center of gravity In particular ways,
he can move raster or slower and
change his direction.

When Judgo Underwood of Georgia,
hud charged tho Jury it was exceed
ingly dangerous for tho defendant's
c.'iunsol to ask for an uddltlonal
charge. William Glenn had been do
fending a big, strapping town-boy,
who wus charged with uu assault and
battery upon a smaller boy. Tbe big
boy bad been imposing upon tbe little
fellows, and one of them hit him
with a switch and ran. Tho big boy
pursued him, threw a stone at him,
cut u bad gash In his head, and laid
him up for a weok or two.
The grand jury found a true bill,
and after the closing speech by the
solicitor, tho Judgo charged the law
very fairly, and then asked it thore
was any othor charge that counsol de
sired. Glenn rose, and with some
tone of apprehension, said,
Q"I believe your Honor omitted to
charge that self-dofcnco may Justlfj

straightened up, "yes, gentleman,
there Is such a law, add if you ballove
from tho evidence that this great,
big, double-Jointed, blg-tlsted young
gentleman wus actuated by foar and
self-defence whoa he ran after that

and because ho couldn't overtake
him, picked up a rock big enough to
knock down a steer and throw ut him

"I bellove not," said Glenn.

CAUSE OF SEASICKNESS.
the Malatty nrgiti In the Ear Drat Mate!
Fcislckncss starts In the ear. In
Its cavity are three small tubes, each'
lent In a circle and tilled with fluid.
Tho three sit at rltht angles to each
other, like the three sides ut tho
corner of ti room or box. Consequent
ly, in whatever direction the head It
moved, the tluld in some one of the
tubes is given a circular motion.
Hanging out Into the tubes, from
their sides, are hairs of cilia, which
connect with nerve cells und fibers
that branch olf from the auditory
nerve. When the head moves, the
fluid moves, the hairs move, tho
cells aro "Urcd oil," a nervous cur
rent Is sent up to the brain, and a
feeling of tho head's peculiar motion
As for seasickness this nerve cur
rent, on the way to the bruin, at ono
point runs bcsldo the spot or "cen
ter" where tho norvo governing tho
itomach has its origin. When tho
rocking of the brain Is abnormally
violent and prolonged tho stimulus
is so great thut tho current leaks
over Into this adjoining "center" and
so excites tho nerve running to tbo
stomach us to cause wretchedness and
retching. L'caf mutes, whoso cat
"canals" are allotted, are nocr sea
sick. Hut normal'y tho amount ot car
feeling which we got by reason ot
molng our head in a particular di
rection comes in a curioi.s way to be
a measure of the direction of the
sound. Tho feelings wo get from
our skin and muscles in turning the
bead play a similar rolo. Wo do this
so frequently tor every point that in
time wo learn to Judgo tho direction
of the sound by the way we would
have to turn tho head In order tn
hear tho sound best Thereafter wo
do not hao to turn the hcud to get
tho direction, for we now remombci
the propjr feeling und know It. This
memory of tho old feeling Is our idea
nf tho present direction. If wo novel
moved our head wo never could have
any such notion ot tho location ol
sounds as at present perhaps none
whatever. McL'luro's Magazine.
