A Deceptive Fish.
A naturalist who Is familiar with

to see fallen and faded leaves of the
jak tree floating a short distance be
low the surface or sinking slowly to
the bottom. Certain small fish, com
monly known as sea bats, mimic
these leaves both in form and color
in order to escape detection. Both in
shape and color they look when in the
water like waterlogged leaves, but
when removed from their native ele
ment this resemblance is immediately
lost. They float in the water half side
ways and all swim in the same direc
tion, turning simultaneously. On one
occasion Mr. Willey attempted to cap
ture one of these sea bats in a rock
pool -and directly he made a plunge
with the hand aet saw nothing except
what he took to be a jak leaf slowly
and inertly sink to the bottom. To his
astonishment, as be withdrew the net

Seeing Your Own Brain.
In Professor Lloyd's work, "The End
of the World." the experiment of see
Ing one's own brain is interesting.
The experimenter, with a lighted can
die, enters a perfectly dark room. He
stands before a black curtain or wall,
so that details cannot be seen by the
candle's feeble light. The candle is
moved laterally to and fro in front of
the eyes, keeping it about six inches
from the face and just below the tip
of the nose. In a few minutes some
thing, as if a thin mist, seems to
grow before the eyes. It becomes
more definite and gains outline, and
then soon one may distinguish the
venation aAl the division of the brain.
The theory is that the moving light
produces a counter irritation of the
nerves that conduct *ne impression of
sight to the brain. The current is re
versed, and the brain is pictured on
the retina. Then. the impression re
turns through the nerves and affects
the brain so that we see it.

Early Horse Race Prizes.
Prizes for winners of horse racec
bundreds of years ago took curious
forms. The earliest was the "briglia
d'or," or golden bridle. After this the
prize in England was a bell. Thi
idea was taken from the custom
among owners of pack horses of dec
orating the best horse, which led the
cavalcade, with a bell, so that on dark
nights and in dangerous places the
whereabouts of the leader might be
known and the others follow boldly.
At Carlisle silver bells were raced for
by the moss troopers and dalesmen,
and specimens of these bells are still
retained in the town ball.-St. James
Card playing began in India In the
ninth century. It was introduced into
Europe by orientals some time prior
to the thirteenth century. Saracens
popularized the amusement in Spain
and Italy. The taste for the game
afterward spread to Germany, where
It commenced to be indulged In about
1275. its appearance in France was
mentioned In the records of that coun
try in 1393. Heraldic cards were first
known in England in 10GO.-New York
