BARGAINING AS A FINE ART.
Polite and Loquacious, the Oriental
Shopkeeper Will Haggle Over the
Price of an Article From Dawn Until
Dark-A Sample Tralsaetion.
He is the selfsame fellow still, the
Cairene merchant, as in the days of
Haroun-al-Raschid. He squats In cross
legged contentment as of yore, amen
able only to the loquacIous system of
bargaining dear to the heart of the
oriental. The western tourist, foolish
ly regarding time as of value, will lose
all equanimity long before he has com
pleted the smallest transaction. If his
knowledge of the east and his patience
suffice and he begins negotiations early
enough In the day not* to .be driven
forth as the merchant sets up his shut
ters at nightfall'he may obtain the ar
ticle he seeks at a Just and equitable
price. If he gains possession of it in
less than. the accustomed time he will
certainly have paid more than Its mar
Vagamundo, the western traveler- ex
perienced In the ways of the east,
catches sight during a stroll through
the bazaars of an Arabic blade that
takes his'- fancy. It hangs high at the
top of the open booth, on the raised
floor of which serenely squats the pro
prietor, with folded legs. Vagamundo,
as from the merest curiosity, pauses
to run his eye over the countless ar
ticles. suggests with a half 'stified
yawn that the scimitar looks like what
might be a convincing weapon in the
hands of an enemy, ventures to hope
that the merchant is enjoying fine
weather and strolls leisurely on. The
shopkeeper continues to puff drowsily
at his water bottle until the western
er Is all but out of earshot Then he ap
pears suddenly to awake and drones
out a languid Invitation to return.
Vagaimundo pays no heed to the sum
mons for some moments, gazes ab
stractedly upon the wares displayed
in another booth, then wanders slowly
back. The merchant hopes that the
traveler is enjoying the best of health,
invites him to squat in the bit of
space not already occupied by himself
or his wares, offers a cigarette and
falls to discussing the state of the cot
ton crop in t"e dia. By the methe
second cigarette s lighted he turns the
conversation deftly to the scimitar and
remarks that though it Is hung among
his wares rather for ornament than
for sale It is possible he may some
day tire of beholding it and part with
It for-perhaps 1,000 plasters. Vaga
mundo, puffing reminiscently for a
time, recalls having heard a friend ex
press a desire to obtain such a weap
on for, say, 75 plasters or so and
wonders, after all, why that friend
should care for so useless an article.
The shopkeeper regrets that the two
prices named do not more nearly coin
cide, trusts that the inundations will
not be so late this year as last and
reaches again for the tube of his nar
ghile. Vagamundo expresses his de
light that the khedive has recovered
from his recent attack, thank the
merchant for his disinterested hospital
ity and saunters away.
The shortest instant before he Is
finally lost from view In the surging
stream of bazaar loungers he is called
back to learn that the merchant is of
the opinion that the new land tax will
work more effectively than the old,
that the scimitar Is probably worth only
780 plasters and that some of the
eucalyptus trees in the Esbekieh gar
dens are to be removed. With all
due respect to Cromer Pasha Vaga
mundo doubts the practicability of his
latest scheme of taxation and hopes
that his friend may somewhere run
across such a scimitar at 100 plasters.
Thus the transaction M-ontnues; a
third, a fourth, even a fifth time Vaga
mundo returns. By the sixth visit he
has dropped the fiction of a friend and
openly offers 225 plasters for the blade,
and the shopkeeper. arouses himself
sufficiently to take the weapon down
for inspection and expresses a willing
ness to part with It for 275.
Over newly rolled cigarettes the ne
gotiation proceeds, now touching upon
the prevalence of ophthalmia, anon
sirting the matter of scimitars, their
manufacture and price. Speaking of
scimitars, the merchant suspects that
for the one In hand he would be satis

just price-on the mat between them,

Wonderful Scales That Are Not
Made -of Anything.
THE LAW OF FALLINGAODIES.
By ThisThanks to Newton..and- Lieb
nitz and the Calculus of Differentials,
the Weight of Suns and Planets. May
Be Accurately Determined. -
The art of weighing has expanded
into a comprehensive science and can
no longer be called a mere art. Scales
are made of metal, but the set herein
described is not made of anything.
Scales are in hourly use that can
weigh a peicil mark whose length is
one-fourth of an inch; or a section of
a hair -of equal length. The usual
practice in weighing runs from grains,
ounces, pounds up to tons, usually one
ton, and then up to fifty or more tons
in railroad weighing. costing hundreds
and thousands of dollars.
But humans would find it quite diffi
cult .to make scales that would weigh
millions, billions, trillions, quadrillions,
quintillions. sextillions. septillions. oc
tillions and nonillions of tons, or de
cillons. -An Instrument able 'to weigh
a decillion tons can now be purchased
for one cent-a pencil. The scales are
not made of metal; instead a set and
fixed specific speed is the next to all
powerful engine used. Put it is far
more easy to run a locomotive or
steamship without knowing a single
law of these complex machines than
to even attempt to use the speed
scales without knowing every minute
detail of every velocity law of .mov

the speed of the car increased uniform

cause It started from rest and in
creased to twenty miles per hour. If
a body moves during one minute at
twenty miles per hour the distance
traversed will be speed multiplied by
time, or twenty miles multiplied by
one-sixtieth of an hour. or one-third
of a mile; but the average speed In
case of the car is ten miles per hour,
so that the distance moved over Is half
as great or one-sixth, mile. This is a
fundamental law of nature and is of
