O HOW A PIANOJS TUNED,

You have heard these sounds before,
though lliey look a little unfamiliar when
reproduced on paper. Thcv represent the
performance of a plnno-tuner. They nro
the tanglblo and disagreeable part of the
neccsinry bilslne-s of putting In tuno nn
Instrument, which, nlanl loo many people
pnd n deplorably large portion of their
lives In putting out of tune.
This business of tuning pianos, which
certainty looks rather mysterious, as you
watch tho manner In which tlm operator
pries up oho string nnd then another,
sounding meanwhile .1 confused Jargon of
notes, until the puzzled listener does not
know nn octave from a fifth, Is not, how
ever, as dllllcult and as mysterious as
at llr.nt It nppenr..
All that Is required Is an exact ear nnd
a few slmplo tools, viz., a tuning fork
(usually a C fork), a long, hammer-like
key nnd a v.-edgo or mute. The accuracy
of tho tuner's ear Is partly a natural gift,
partly tho result of long practice.
Even tho most unpractlced car can
readily distinguish pound from nolsei
pound Is produced by regular vibrations,
while noise Is a mixture of sounds thrown
together without reference to any law.
High notes have a largu number of vibra
tions tier second, while low notes linvo
n small number. The highest A la calcu
lated to have 3.4SO vibrations per sec
ond, whllo the lowest A has only 27'J.
The majority of tuners havo adopted a
mothod of tuning which Includes but two
Intervals the octave anil tho fifth. Th
ordinary square piano has two strings, and
most uprights have three strings, to
ach note, except In the lower octave.
The pitch of one of these strings Is tuned
In the relation of octavo or fifth to some
previous note. Tho remaining strings
are then tuned In unison with the first
string. As tho strings approach unison,
a number of strong and rapid beats or
puIsatlonG arc perceptible to the ear; n3
they come still closer, the beats become
Blower, till finally they nro no longer to
bo heard. Then the unison Is perfect.
The ear In tuning Is guided by progres
sion from a confused sound to strong
beats, nnd then form smooth waves to
one continuous sound. Unisons nnd oc
taves aro always tuned perfect that Is,
tho beats must entirely disappear. In tho
fifths, when perfectly tuned, there will
be neither wave nor beat.
It takes generally about three years to
learn the business, and a good workman
will make from Jt to $3.", a week. A few
women havo been employed us tuners
with great success.

The nervous system Is enclosed In n
bony case composed of the bones of
thq head nml the vertebrae; the en
cephalos Is contained In the cranial
cavity, the spinal marrow In tho spinal
canal. The marrow nnd the brnln do
not completely fill these cavities, and
the Interstices are filled with liquid,
which prevents (.hocks and compres
sions. From tho marrow and tho brain
tho sensitive nnd motor nerves start,
which carry sensations to the two cen
tral organs and take back tlm move
ments. A sensation brought to tho brain
by a sensitive nerve generally provokes
n motion, a contraction. In such cases
tho brain Is a center, In which the Im
pression Is transformed Into action. Hut
very often tho Impression Is not fol
lowed by any action; the nervous sys
tem then becomes a central storehouse
for Impressions. M. Hiissaud very apt
ly compares the brain to n photographic
plate which retains tho Image and only
yields It under the Influence of a de
veloping body. Tho brain, particularly
In infancy, stores up numerous sensa
tions, which later cause actions. Tho
cerebral center retains these Images,
that Is, these lasting remembrances of
The srny substance which forms the
outside covering of the brain Is a sensi
tive plntu on which Images of tho outer
world ire Impressed, Thoso nerves con
duct the electric, heat, light and sound
waves to this cerebral covering, where
they are Impressed as on the cylinder of
a phonograph. The Impression Is morn
or less exact, according to the nature of
the ceiebral Instrument; It Is more or
less profound according to tho breadth
cr the number of vibrations of tho
waves. The impression thus formed
becomes a recollection; It tends to be
como affected with ago; It submits to
alterations according to modtllcatlons
of the Impressed surface. These lmaijos
may remain unused In the brain for a
Jonff time, as tho photographic plates In
their box. Tho Idea of an object Is thus
always the recollection of an object.
The association of Idenn often causes
an nssocatlon of movements, called au
tomatic. A little Girl, for instance,
learns to knit. At llrst sho Is very
awkward, but gradually sho progresses
nnd tho work almost does Itself, until
finally sho walks, talks and learns her
lessons while knitting. Tho different au
tomatic centers occupy localized re
gions In tho brain. Tlm most celebrated
Is tho center of language, localized
about 1S25 by llnulllaud In tho front lobe
of tho brain. When any Injury what
over rupture of u blood vessel, snfteu
Ing of the brain tissue, etc. attacks
this lobe, the faculty of language disap
pears and tho patient Is stricken with
aphasia. Them nro several aspects of
this disease. Sometimes the patient
cannot speak, but Is nblo to express his
thought in writing; this Is aphasia of ar
ticulation; others are nblo to speak, but
cannot oven write their own names;
this Is uraphlo aphasia; others, though
not nt all deaf, havo no Idea that tho
name they hear pronounced is their own
name, although they may bo able to
speak It, read It or write It: this Is nu

MR. GILBERT RYMER, Q. G.
She slood quite still for a moment
after lie had illsnppenrcil. A couple tit
sen-Btllls swirled up, screaming. Into the
blue nbove the cliff line; across the de
serted downs came the distant barking
of a dog,
When tho torpor lifted from her brain,
nml nho war nblo to think ns well nn
feel, bIio tilekcd Up her Mihshndo and
began to walk toward home. On the
nay sho passed a couple of nursery
maids, who turned after her to stare
nnd whisper. Hut sho did hot notice
them; she was walking In n dream.
Only. Upon reaching the outskirts) of tho
little watering place, the Bights and
sounds of humanity nrottsed her to a
keener consclousncus of externals, nnd
sho looked at tlm multiform common
places of everyday life at tho shops,
tho children, tho milkman clanking on
his round with n curloUs feeling of
aloofness and linfnrnlllartly. Dominat
ing every other emotion was that of sur
prise, nf Incredulous, overwhelming sur
prise, that thin thing should havo come
to her of nil women In the world to her.
Tho bell was ringing for luncheon ns
sho entered the seaside boarding house,
and her husband met her In the hall and
commented upon her pallor.
"It Is nothing," she told him. "I hur
ried, and walking fast always makes
my heart beat."
When CHIbert Hynler, 0. C., hnd re
turned from the Continent, one long va
cation, with a wife, there had been quite
a sensation In u certain section of so
ciety. One of the most brilliant men nt
tho bar, who had taken silk well on the
sunny side of 40, "he could have married
positively anybody, my dear," us his
sister hnd tearfully remarked to a
bosom friend, Instead, he had remained
a bachelor so long only to make a love
mntch with a young widow of vague
antecedents whom ho had met In Paris.
Of course everyone considered that he
had thrown himself away. Hy the time,
however, thnt Mrs. Itymer had Impress
ed her personality upon two "at homes"
and a dinner parly his friends the men,
nt least had approved his choice. She
was more than beautiful she was
charming; she dressed In perfect taste,
nnd she was evidently devoted to her
That event was two years old now,
but the devotion had not lessened. On
the contrary, sho was fonder of him
thnn she had been on her wedding day.
And Hvmcr, which was perhaps more
remarkable, had never repented. After
nil, there wns no reason why he should
have done. so. lie was not n boy when
ho married her. Ho hnd known what ho
wanted, nnd had got It or thought ho
had, which answered his purpose Just
as well. People who noticed things said
It revived their faith In humanity lo see
tho nymers look at each other ncross a
An observant eye to-day would havo
remarked more than the very obvious
attachment between tho eminent counsel
nml his wife. It would have remarked
that Mrs. Itymer, who rarely touched
wine, drank two glasses of sherry at
luncheon; thnt tho unaccustomed stim
ulant brought a Hush to her cheeks; that
subsequently she talked and laughed
with gnyety which was a trifle hyster
ical. She wns trying not to think, as a
matter of fact; but the observant eye
aforesaid could not have guessed that,
for why should -Mrs. Gilbert Itymer
havo any cause for mental disquietude?
Later. In the privacy of their sitting
room, still another mood came upon her.
Hhu crouched besldo her husband and
laid her head upon his knees.
"Dear old Gilbert," she murmured,
"I wish we were nt home nguln, all by
our two selves. I'm tired nf these peo
ple. I'm sick nf the place; It's boring me
"Why, 1 thought you liked it!" he said,
surprised. Hut ho was pleased, too, and
a little touched, and his hand caressed
her hair. "Of course, we will go home
to-morrow, If you like."
"What a good fellow you are, Gilbert!
I believe you would do anything for me.
And we've been married two years." sho
added whimsically "two whole happy
years." She raised her head nnd began
to twist one of the buttons on his coat.
"Do you remember that day at Fon
talneblenu before wo came homo? It
was a day Just like this when we started
a blue sky with wooly whlto clouds.
Hut It rained afterward, and wo got lost
In tho forest, and you made me put on
your waistcoat over my muslin dress
because I was getting f-o wet. What a
guy I must have looked!"
Sho began to laugh, but the laugh
dwindled and her eyes grew vacant.
Sho was wondering If tho tldo had
reached the bottom of tho cliffs. Sud
denly she looked up at him with a kind
of fear In her face.
"What are you watching mo like that
for, Gilbert? I suppose you are thinking
me nn awful fool. Hut I can't help talk
ing nonsense. I I don't think I'm very
well. I'erhap3 the wine has got Into my
She rose to her foot, and during the
rest of the afternoon made an effort to
be natural. Hut sho could not succeed;
it was as though she were tho sport of
n playful devil that made her betray tho
condition of her norves despite herself,
and all night she lay awake wondering
when and how soon she should hear tho
news. She rather hoped It would b
soon; It would lesson tho tension, she
felt, to know the worst,
Sho hnd not long to wait. Directly
she came down In the morning some
body told her what she was expecting to
hear. The crushed body of a man had
been found on a ledge of rock under the
cliffs. It was conjectured that he had
fallen over early on tho previous day,
as the people nt the hotel hnd missed
him nt luncheon time, lie was a
youngish man, and his name was An
.Mrs. Itymer laughed; It wns horrible
of her; but people of highly strung or
ganizations fuquently receive news of
tho kind In thnt way, nnd if sho had not
laughed she would havo shrieked, which
would have been more dllllcult to ex
plain. "Von shouldn't have told her so sud
denly," said Itymer, "Hut of course you
could not, guess thnt Sir. Cnnenovn was
an old acquaintance of my wife's."
Tliero was a good deal of lalk at break
fast about tho affair and n great many
conjectures as to whether accident, sui
cide or foul play were answerable for
It, In Hrlgliton or Houriiemouth nobody
would have known anything nbout It,
but Sand Regis was one of those de
lightfully benighted little watering places
where n big haul of mackerel Is an event
and it real, brand new tragedy a sift of
the gods, .
A young gentleman present had seen
tho body and spoken to the fisherman
who had found It, Of course he was full
of tho subject, and ho entered Into elab
orate details, punctuated with eggs and
bacon, which left nothing to the Imag
ination. "Havo you ever noticed how Infalli
bly anything with goro In It appeals to
the uverago middle-class of the Hrltlsh
mind?" observed Itymer sotto voce to
his wife, "Thesa jieoplo nro positively
enjoying themselves. Why, what's the
matter? Aro you not well?"
Ho had happened to look at her, She
was leaning back In her chair as white
us marble, , ....
"They aro all beasts," she said shud
dering, "That boy Is making me sick,
J hate to hear about blood. It uffecta
mo almost hb much as seeing It. I am
glad we ure going home, They will bo
talking nbout It again nt luncheon, I
suppose, and at dinner,"
Hut the llymers did not return to Lon
don that day, because Mrs. Itymer re
ceived a summons to attend the coro
ner's Inquest upon tho subject of her dis
gust, the late Anthony Cazenove.
She held the paper with the tips of
her fingers, and her pale face wore a
look of fate.
"I Buppose," she explained to her hus
band, ''that somebody saw us together
on the cliffs. Didn't I tell you before
that I met him? I suppose I forgot.
This is yery unpleasant. Must I go?"
"Of course you must," he aald. "Don't
be a baby, Pauline! They will only ask
you half a dozen questions. It'll bo
over In five minutes."
Her examination, however, lasted
longer than five minutes, for reasons nf
which Itymer hnd been informed. In
the courso thereof she staled thnt she
hnd made the nciiurtlnlatu-i' of Cazenove
mi the Continent during lur llrst hus
band's lifetime, and that she had lost
sight of him for some years until recent
ly, when they met npnlu In London.
The meeting on the cliffs wns nccldonl
nI. "Then how does It 11,11111011," nsked the
coroner, "that it nolo signed 'Paulino
Hymer' was found In his pocket, agree
ing to nn appointment proposed by liltn?
Is the handwriting yours?"
She admitted that It Was.
There were other curious facts con
nected with the nffalr, for which Mrs.
Itymer had no satisfactory explanations,
ltrlefly they amounted to this: She had
been seen walking with Cazenovo near
the spot where the tragedy nitl.it have
occurred, nnd subsequently nlone In a
state of noticeable ngltallon, nnd near
the deceased was a bunch of ribbons
which matched others on her dress,
The queen's counsel, who hnd accom
panied his wife, sat through the ordeal
quietly, attentive nnd watchful. The
course of affairs must have brctt an
overwhelming surprise to hltn, hut he
made no sign beyond a fnlnt stare when
he first saw tho drift of the examina
tion. Ho merely nodded cncoitrngemetit
now and then, as her wide, terrified eyes
sought his across tho room. And occa
sionally ho smiled an ostentatious sar
castic smile, which signified that the Im
plication was really too nbsurb to bo
taken seriously. He had practiced It
with erfect In many courts, and It
lencted upon the bulk of outsiders now.
Hut his nnlls were denting his palms,
nnd ho would have given ten yeats of
his life to bo nblo to prompt her.
The coroner's summing up was antag
onist' !c, nnd she was committed to trial.
Itymer went over to her. Ills face was
almost as whlto as hers.
"Why didn't you tell me nil you knew
about II?" he said "I could have ad
vised you, nnd this might not have hap
pened." That was all he hail to say to her,
but It wns he who prepared her defense
nnd secured his trusty friend Utilluck,
0. C, to conduct It.
"If I thought you thought I was
guilty," she said to her husband on the
eve of tho momentous day, "I shouldn't
care what happened to me. Hut yon be
lieve In 1110 you love mo; I want to stny
with you. Oh, Gilbert, suppose things
don't turn out as we hope!"
"We won't suppose anything of the
kind," h answered cheerfully. "1011
mustn't be dispirited. Pauline."
It wns tho case of the year. People
discussed It In reslnurnnts, at street
corners, In drawing rooms ami dubs,
nnd on the morning of tho trial the
court was packed with London faces.
What would tho defense be? That
was the question London hnd been, ask
ing Itself for weeks, and there wns a
thrill of Intense excitement In court
when, on tho third afternoon, Mullock,
Q. C, rose to open Itymer, Q. C.'a de
fense, Ills argument was that Cazenove had
been In love with tho prisoner before
her second marriage, and had renewed
his unwelcome attentions when they
met again. He was a man of violent
and uncontrolled passions and had more
than once frightened her with his Im
portunities. Knowing that ho was In
pecuniary straits she had given him the
ff.OO In return for his promise lo go to
the Transvaal and leave her In peace.
If. Instead of adopting this course, she
had spoken to her husband and asked
him to protect her from this unhappy
man, much needless suffering would, no
doubt, have been spared her. Hut, unl
imited by a natural, a womanly weak
ness, she had chosen the alternative of
bribing Cazenove to quit the country. The
meeting 011 the cliffs was not nil acci
dent, but a resionse to his prayer for
11 farewell Interview before be left Kng
laml. Her denial of the circumstance,
her suspicious silence upon other mat
ters at the Inquest, had merely been In
nccordauce with her wish to keep the
nffalr secret. And It was not compre
hensible that a timid woman, having at
length realized the danger of miscon
struction which her conduct Incurred,
should have been too nliirmcd to explain
coherently the true fuels of the case?
Of course, there had been a scene on the
cliffs, which had naturally agitated her;
and what was more probable, when she
had left him. than that the unhappy
Cazenove, consumed by a hopeless pas
sion, had, In a moment of recklessness
nnd despair, Hung his promise to Un
winds nnd preferred death to life with
out the woman he could not win? He
need not tell the Jury that such things
had been done before for love. As for
the ribbons, she had given them to him
ns a keepsake. X11 doubt her conduct
had been foolishly, culpably weak. Hut
becauso a tender-hearted woman allowed
her sensibilities to overrule her reason,
wns she to be deemed capable of a re
volting crlmo? Ho had no witnesses to
call, but ho ventured to believe that no
Intelligent and humane Jury would con
vict the prisoner upon merely circum
stantial evidence nftcr tho statement he
The verdict was "Not guilty."
Itymer hurried across tho court to his
wife, who was talking to her slster-ln-law
and some friends.
"Janet will dilve you to the stntlon,
Pauline," he said. "If you make hasto
you will catch the 5:01', to town, and the
sooner you nro nt home tho hotter. I
want to speak to one or two people here,
nnd I'll follow you by tho next train In
half an hour."
Hut the dinner had been waiting nearly
nn hour before ltymer's latchkey turned
In tho hall door an hour which his
wife's Impatience trebled. She had taken
off the plain dark dress sho had worn
In court and donned a pale-tinted "Lib

robe. Sho wanted to look her best 111 his
eyes nnd her own to-night. A frightful
episode was burled forever. Sho would
grace fittingly the dawn of her now

Hccently a reward of 5,0M was offer
ed In Knglnhil for It serpent measuring
thirty feet or more In length, and JM.OOO
Tor n snake equaling or exceeding forty
reel, and several ophidian experts rlalm
ed to have seen several snakes of the
rormer size nnd Bklns of old serpents
nearly or quite forty feet In length.
Although no one has yet come forward
to take either prize, the discussion
shows tlm lively Interest scientists und
the public, take In the relative size of
slinkcs. In this respect tho southern
part of our continent can enter the lists
with 11 fair chance of producing Biiakcs
equal In length and girth to any In the
world. When Humboldt traveled
through South America his nttcntlon
wns attracted to the wonderful slzo of
the serpents, nnd In speaking of the
anaconda, of the Amazon region he
wrote that "no larger snake exists In
tho world not even the python of India
and tho l'listcrn Archipelago."
for size ahine, then, the anaconda, or
waterboa, must rank llrst on this con
tinent, nnd from the stories told about
this reptllo nnd from the specimens ex
hibited at various times, It Is pretty
clear that serpents ranging between
thirty nnd forty feet hnvo been discov
ered In the past, and with a reward of
$50,000 111 sight many old snake hunters
will undoubtedly bring others to light
within n year. The nnncondns average
twenty-live feet In length, and measure
three foot In circumference, but It Is not
unusual to find them thirty nnd thirty
two feet In length. Tho cost of captur
ing and shipping such n reptile from
South America to London, however,
would bo nearly ?.",000, so that the hun
ter would not gain much In claiming
the first reward. Most snnko hunters
will consequently confine themselves to
capturing a creature that will ut least
measure forty feet In length, nnd the
question naturally arises In the minds
of many as to whether such an enor
mous reptile (exclusive of the mythical
sea serpent) ever existed. The testimony
of travelers and natives seems to prove
that they do exist.
An Englishman saw a skin stretched
across tho celling of nn exhibition hnll
In Itlo Janeiro thnt measured Seventy
live feet In length, and another African
traveler had picked up the cast-off skin
of a python that measured thirty-live
feet, which, with the rest of the tall
and head, must have brought tho rep
tllo close to forty feet. In Hrltlsh Guiana
the natives have a stuffed anaconda that
has been variously measured nt forty
and forty-two feet by captains of sail
ing vessels who stopped at Georgetown
for a cargo of hides, cocoa and coffee.
The natives had caught the huge rep
tile In the dense swamps of the Interior
while In the act of swallowing a young
puma. The frightened puma kept the
snake so busily engaged that the wary
natives slipped a noose over the ser
pent's neck nnd tied It to a tree and then
dispatched the reptile at their leisure.
Speaking of another snake In Guiana,
tho water eamoodl, Ini-Thurn, tho cele
brated traveler and scientist, writes as
follows: "A friend of mine, living In 11
somewhat remote place surrounded by
forests, wns somewhat particular about
having his coffee brought lo him Just at
dawn. His cook, when she went In the
dark Into the shed which served ns a
kitchen, was In the habit of striking
the match to light the flru on n particu
lar corner post, but one morning she
wns surprised to find that one match
after another broke Instead of catching
lire. At last she strtic!e')iullght In a new
place, and having dono.BO. she found to
her great horror that' a thirty-foot ea
moodl was colled round the corner post,
and on this she hnd been rubbing her
matches." Later on in the same ac
count he says, 'it wns probably a
water eamoodl that first taught me thnt
snakes snore. Once, as I wns wandering
according to my habit from my ham
mock in the middle nf the night to smoke
a pipe In the sui"iindlng forest, my
companion, who had Just retired to his
own hammock, called to mo to beware
of a certain tree, for he had heard a
snake snore there. Curiosity, of course,
drove me to tho tree, wheru the sound
of snoring was plainly audible, and
where, after some time, I succeeded in
discovering it large snake curled round
C.iptnln John Haines, of tho bark Con
trell, made an expedition up the Amazon
in ISGo, while his vessel lay at anchor nt
Para receiving a cargo of South Ameri
can goods. Ho was of an ndventurous
turn of mind, and having promised a
friend to bring home the skin of one of
the big anacondas that lived In the trop
ical forests he employed a score of na
tives to tnko him where he could Hud
one. They Journeyed up tho Amnzon on
n rude raft, keeping elose to the shores,
and In two weeks were In the densest
forest and loneliest part of the world
that tho captain ever visited. In this
dismal region they discovered their prey.
Colled up among the branches of a huge
tree wns a sleeping auneondn. Tho 11.1
tltves were expert snakecatchers, and
with great caution they approached the
reptllo and noosed him. Hut tho animal
awoke from his sleep, and began lashing
its body nnd tail with such fury that
every one had to run for his life. Then,
tugging desperately at the noose, the
slimy monster tried to snap the rope.
Fearing lest ho should succeed, tho na
tives, led by Captain llnlnes, made a
bold effort to kill the creature with their
spears and knives, but the powerful
folds shook them off like Hies, scattering
them In nil directions. The rope wns
rapidly being worn In two, and to save
his prey the cnptaln finally approached
close enough to end tho struggle with n
couplo of charges of heavy buckshot.
"Then wo measured the monster,"
writes the captain, "and ho measured
from tip to tip Just forty-two feet and
ten Inches, and they tell mo a larger one
was never enught before In this whole
The other snakes nf India nre more
poisonous than large and powerful, The
damage they do can be appreciated by
reading the ofllclnl returns, which show
that about 20,000 human TJelngs nro kill
ed annually by them. The average
length of India's poisonous snakes Is
between live and eight feet, although
tho cobra frequently reaches twelve and
fifteen feet In length. Ill America the
dlamond-back raltlesnako frequently
reaches a total length of sixteen and
even eighteen and twenty feet, although
the latter Is rare. The Seminole In
dians of Florida claim that one reaching
to twenty-llvo or thirty feet Inhabits the
everglades and Is seen swimming nn
Lnko Okeechobee on moonlight nights.
Hut this may be simply the mythical
sea-serpent caught In this Island sen,
which would account for his nonappear
ance lately at summer resorts and upon
the open sea,
The ordinary black snake Is a slim
reptile, and would hardly bo classed as
a big snake, but very often in the warm,
tropical parts of the South ho is found
to measure twenty feet. The iclnij snake
of the South Is also a long, slim creature
that deceives the eye unless stretched
alongside of the tape-measure. On the
other hand, the moccasins are short,
and so thick and stocky that one gets
the impression that they aro big. They
rarely reach a length exceeding six or
seven feet, but their bodies nre usually
ns large round as a man's leg, The same
is true with one species of the rattle
snake. The circumference will measure
a foot and a half, while the length will
not bo more than ten or twelve feet.
Length and circumference together con
stitute largeness In reptiles, nnd In this
respect the huge nuaconda and python
more truly fill our Ideas of a big snake.
