SPIRIT SLATE WRITING.
How the Mysterious Sentences Are
Prepared In Advance.
Spiritualistic slate writing, If clevei'ly
done, always m2.kes a marked impres
sion on amagician's audiencebecause
it utterly baffles their efforts to detect
the trick. They see a small cabinet
suspended above the stage by means
of cords or ribbons. It has an open
front and Is empty. The maglian
turns it around so that ever part of
it may be seen and taps it inside and
out with his wand to show that it is
On a stand near by he has a small
easel, a common school slate, a bottle
of india ink with a quill pen in it and
a few sheets of ordinary white writing
paper. All these he passes around
among the audience for examination.
Then he fixes a sheet of the paper to
the slate by means of wafers, places
the slate on the easel and the easel in
the cabinet, together with the bottle of
ink, the latter having the pen still in It.
Having allowed the audience to see
the articles thus arranged in the cabi
net, he throws a large silk handker
chief over It. Mysterious sounds are
immediately heard, and the cabinet
shakes as if some living thing had en
tered It. When the sounds and the
shaking cease, he removes the hand
kerchief, showing an Inscription writ
ten in bold black letters on the paper
and the pen not In the ink bottle, tut
lying on the bottom of the cabinet. He
then removes the paper from the sla-te
and passes it around for examination,
when the writing is immediately recog
nized as having been done with India
The explanation of the trick Is sim
ple. The writing was done In advance
by the performer, the fluid used being
a solution of sulphuric acid of the pur
est quality. To make the solution 50
drops of the concentrated acid are add
ed to one ounce of filtered wa-er. Writ
ing done with this solution is invisible
until exposed to heat When so ex
posed, it comes out perfectly black,
looking exactly like dried India ink.
The heat is applied by means of an
electric current running over wire with
which the slate is wound. The cords
by which the cabinet is suspended con
ceal copper wires, which conduct the
current to the slate. Black silk threads
suitably attached enable the performer
to make the sounds in the cabinet, to
cause the cabinet to shake and to jerk
the pen out of the- Ink bottle.
Several sheets of paper are prepared
in advance, each with a different in
scription, the performer telling one in
scription from another by secretly
marked pin pricks.-New York Herald.
Keeping sat It.
There Is a very old but very good
story about a boy who was engaged
one winter day In putting a ton of coal
Into a cellar. His only implement wasI
a small fire shoveL. Noticing this, a
benevolent old gentleman expressed
surprise and commiseration.
"My son," said the gentleman, "you
surely do not expect to put in all that
coal with that little shovel?"
"Oh, yes, I do," replied the boy cheer
fully. "All I have to do is t6 keep at
There is a lesson in this story for
young and old, and it is exemplified in
the lives of the great men of the world.
It is a mistake to suppose that the best
work of the world is done by people of
great strength and many opportunities.
"Keeping at it" is the secret of success.
Left Handed Medicine.
An Atchison druggist tells this story
and declares that It is true: He had
tonsilitis, but did not send for a doc
tor, as he knew he would be all right
as soon as the swelling "broke." But
his wife was. worried and insisted on
sending for a doctor. When- the doc
tor arrived, he looked through his medi
ine ease, and said he had nothing
suitable for the patient; that the medi
cine he had was for the right side,
whereas the swelling in the throat was
on the left side. Then he hurried away
to get his left handed medicine.-Atchi

CONFECTIONS FROM GRAIN.
Wheat and Malt Used In the Mann
facture of Candy.
A manufacturing plant in New Jer
sey, formerly used as ai manilla paper
mill, is now operated by a corporation
engaged In the unique industry of mak
ing confections from wheat and malt,
about the last materials in the world
one would expect to find in candy.
In the earlier stages of the process
the grain is fanned, ground and mixed
in proper proportions. Then it is cook
ed to a mash, from wh!ch a thin sirup
is squeezed by hydraulic presses %nd
conducted to a great iron evaporator.
Thence the sirup is carried in pipes to
a vacuum pan. Here It is vigorously
stirred and further evaporated. The
thickened sirup is drawn off into huge.
shallow tin pans, where it is cooled
and hardened. Plain or flavored with
peppermint, the mass is a rich golden
brown in color. Combined with choco
late it is dark as the familiar caramel
in the candy shops.
When a batch of goods is needed for
the market, the stock in the pans is
broken into pieces and put into a boiler
surrounded by a steam jacket. It Is
reduced by heat to the consistency of
taffy at an old fashioned candy pull.

EDITOR STOREY'S NOTION.
Theory on Which He Remitted a
Fine and Raised a Salary.
"I was slashing copy on old Storey's
Chicago Times many years ago," said
one of the guests at a reunion dinner.
"We had a correspondent in an Illinois
town who simply would not schedule
his matter, but as he generally sent
good stuff we let him run on, slashing
his stuff to suit the exigencies of the
night Besides, his stuff always sug
gested good headlines, and that was
one of Storey's hobbies.
"On one occasion the correspondent
sent up about 700 words which went
Into 100, with nothing over. On the 100
words I constructed a headline which
was right up to the mark. The next
day I was instructed to tell the man
who made out the checks for the coun

"When he received his cheek, he
wrote to Mr. Storey saying that under
ordinary circumstances he wouldn't
kick about the deduction, but in this
particular instance he did because the
fool headline over the item made by a
fool telegraph editor had infuriated the
man whose name was mentioned In the
dispatch and brought on a fight be
tween him and the correspondent, the
result of which was that the corre
spodent was lined $5 in the police
"Mr. Storey was a very just man
when you got at him the right way.
He instructed the cashier to send the
correspondent the amount of the fue

was his way of encouraging a head

Of the cutting power of the beaver's
teeth Frank H. Risteen says In Rod
"The beaver is really a sort of porta
ble pulpi mill, grinding up most any
kind of wood that comes his way. I
once measured a white birch tree, 22
inches through, cut down by a beaver.
A single beaver generally, if not al
ways, amputates the tree, and when It
comes down the whole family fall to
and have a tjegular frolic with the bark
and branches. A big beaver will bring
down a fair sized sapling, say three
inches through, in about two minutes
and a large tree in about an hour.
"One of the queerest facts about the
beaver is the rapidity with which his
long, chisel shaped teeth -vill recover
from an injury. I have known beavers
to ~reak their teeth in biting a trap,
and when 1 caught them again ten
days afterward you couldn't see a sign
of the break. The teeth had grown out
to their former perfection in that short
period." _______ ___

A Joke on a Professor.
Among some Intensely amusing col
lege scrapes told by "A Graduate" in
The Ladies' Home Journal is the story
of a certain professor not much liked
by his pupils who was to be married.
The lady lived In Cleveland. And the
students that loved (?) him were not
of course invited. But they determin
ed that in some way he should hear
from them. And he did. On the day
appointed the professor took the train
at 10 a. m., due to arrive at Cleveland
at 12:30 p. m. About 11 o'clock Jim
Townsend rushed to the telegraph of
fice and sent off this dispatch:

This message reached its destination
long before train No. 6 reached Cleve

alighted it was to walk straight into
the custody of three detectives. They
would listen to no words of reason; but

now to Learn to Like Pictures.
The following suggestions, if you
please, are not from an artist nor even
from a connoisseur, the writer being
nothitg more than an ordinary picture
lover. In general the principle to be
followed is to get as much in an atmos
phere of pictures as possible. Always
go to the museums when you are trav
eling, and if you live near enough
make occasional picture visits to Bos
ton, Chicago or New York. Do not
make the mistake of staying too long
in a gallery. You only tire yourself.
Half an hour is quite long enough. But
do. not endeavor to look at every pic
ture in the gallery in that time. Look
long at a f'ew good ones and let those
you look at be those you like or at least
those which you prefer above the oth
ers. Also ask yourself why you prefer
them. Always get a catalogue. Some
times the pictures are not marked, and
you as a student want always to know
the painter of your picture.-Frederie

At one time not very long ago there
was on the Lancashire coast, near
Lythan, England, a cottage and boat
house that were made almost entirely
from tbe remains of a score or so of
whales that had been driven ashore
some years before. The framewor~k of
the edifice consisted wholly of whale
bone, and the dried skins of the huge
creatures were neatly and strongly fas

There is another building of exactly
the same kind at Peterhead, in Scot
land; and in this case the skulls of the
whales and some of the heavier bones
