Bofdla's Gift of '"Second Sight."
It is almost astonishing to a student of
the history of conjuring to find, as he
surely will, that there is hardly a trick
of modern performers which dues not owe I
either its existence ormodern development
to Robert Houdin. It was only a few years
ago that a writer in one of our leading '
monthly magazines, himself a conjurer of
some local repute, stated that he had I
learned "secon sight" from a Polish Jew, c
who had also taught it to Heller, and this I
anocrvnhal Hebrew was made to affirm 4
that he had "treamed id," much as qMr.
Stevenson tells us he dreams his marvelous
romances. The fact is that Houdin was
undoubtedly the father of this clever de
ception, which, for nearly half a century.
has never failed to amuse and bewilder
audiences all over the world. It was on
Feb. 12,1846, that the following announce
ment appeared in his programme for the
'-In this performance Robert Houdin's
son, who is gifted with a marvelous sec
ond sight, after his eyes have been covered
by a thick bandage, will designate every
object presented him by the audience."
Houdm was first led to the invention of
this trick by observing his children at
play one day. The younger had bandaged
his elder brother's eyes and made him
guess the objects he touched, and when
the latter happened to guess aright they
changed places. The quick witted Freneh
man, ever on the lookout for novelties to
be added to his entertainment, saw here
the germ of a great discover-, and after
applying himself diligently to working
out the problem, succeeded in laying the
foundation on which Heller and others
subsequently erected more elaborate
structures.-Horace Townsend in Phila
To Look at Pictursa Poperly.
The collector who has seen his choicest
prints turned over by uninteLi yent hands
while he has been forced by curtesv to
conceal his chagrin and to res-% the im
pulse to seize the precious plates and con
coal them from unworthy use, will appre
ciate fully the force of what we say. Most
people might almost as well be given the
simple views with which comic almanacs
are adorned as set down to exanmine aport
folio of priceless etchings. Indeed, gen
erally they would be bored by the latter
and entertained by the former.
The great mistake made by the major
ity of persons is to suppose that no special
training is needed to see pictures properly.
The reception of any work of art presup
poses previous and special training, It is
necessary to learn the artist's language;
to train one's perceptions to acute and in
stant sensitiveness to the means by which
it is sought to produce an impression. If
one is to examine photographs with no
other end save to decide whether the re
semblance to the original object is exact,
perhaps nogreat amount of special prepar
ation is needed; but with a picture which
is anything more than a graphic diagram,
special education is a necessity. How few
persons ever take an engraving and sit
down deliberately to study it; to endeavor
to discover why the artist disposed his
figures and accessoriea in a givenmanner;
why the light and shade are disposed
thus; why the engraver has used certain
lines in reproducing certain parts of the
plate, and so on for the rest; and yet
everybody, as we said at the start, sup
poses he knows how to look at a picture.
Cate Ameag the Hindusa
The rajah was fond of smoking, and he
made an arbitrary distinction between
cigarettes and anything else that passed
his lips. He would have been horrified if
I had laid my finger on his hookah or
touched his drinking vessel, but to the
unclean hands that had fingered the
Egyptian cigarette that he was smoking
he paid no heed. Such exceptions to
caste rules are growing more numerous
every day. All drugs and medicines have
long been taken by Hindus without blame,
and in some places ice and soda water are
consumed by Bajputs who would not
drink water drawn for them by an En
glishman from the well. Caste prejudices
have always been capable of adapting
themselves to necessities or very strong
desires. If they were enforced with a
rigid regard for logic, the system would
be impossible and would have broken
down, but caste, in some aspects, is noth
ing more than public opinion among the
Hindus, generally tyrannical and back
ward, but much more capable of improve
ment than a rigid code of rules based

Use of Porcelain Shot.
Under this name small white globules
of porcelain are made in Munich. They
are made to take the place of ordinary
lead shot used for cleaning wine and med.
icine bottles, as porcelain is entirely free
from the objection of producing lead con
tamination, which is often the result
when ordinary shot is usecd Their hard
ness and rough surface producing, when
shaken, greater friction, adapt the porce
lain shot well for quickly cleaning dirty
and greasy bottles, and, as they are not
acted upon by acids or alkalies, almost any
liquid can be used.-American Journal of
Venezela's Cable Railway.
A cable railway is to be built from
Caracas to l, Gusyra, Venezuela. under
special concessions from the Venezueln
government. Caracas is the capital of
Venezuela and La Onayra is the principal
seaport of the republic. They are only
about sixteen miles apart, but are sepa
rated by high mountains, which hay
heretofore prevented easy communication.
It is proposed to tnnel the mountains
and carry the cable road through the
tunnel. The company guarantee to finish
the road in three years, and to charge a
tariff varying from ninety-six cents to
fifty-seven cents for each passenger.

Smallest Plant la the World.
The smallest flowering plant in exist
ence is Wolflla microscopica, a native of
India. It belongs to the natural order
Lemnacen, or the duck weed family. It
is almost microscopic in size, destitute of
proper stem, leaves and roots, but having
these organs merged in one, forming a
frond. There is, however, a prolongation
of the lower surface into akind of rhizoid,
thepurpose of which seemsto betoen.
able the plant to float apright in the
water. The fronds multiply asexually by
sending out other fronds from a basilar
slit or concavity, and with such rapidity
does this take place that a few days often
suffices to produce from a few individuals
enough similar ones to cover many square
rods of pond surface with the minute
But small as these plants are, and sim
ple in their structure, they yet produce
flowers. Two flowers are produced on a
plant, each of them very simple, one con
sisting of a single stamen and the other
of a single pistil, both of which burst
through the upper surface of the frond.
There are two species of this genus grow
ing in the eastern United States, one of
them. Wolfia Columbiana, about one
twenty-fifth of an inch in diameter, and
the other, W. Brasiliensis. somewhat
smaller in size. The American species has
been collected near Philadelphia.-Boston
A Victim of Over Indulgence.
Lady Chatham's dog suffered from over
feeding, and became so violently ill that
its life was in danger. She sought ear
nestly for a doctor for her favorite, and
at length heard that the blacksmith of
the village had said he could cure it. The
smith was sent for, and undertook to cure
the pet if he could be allowed to keep it
for three weeks.
My lady pleaded that she might be per
mitted to visit her favorite two or three
times a week, but this was steadily re
fused, and the man was at length allowed
f to depart with the patient.
For the next three weeks much amuse.
ment was afforded in the smithy by the
sight of Lady Chatham's fat poodle tied
under the bellows in such a position that
it panted with the exertion of getting up
whenever the bellows was used. The
smith's boy also drove the creature round
the orchard three times a day, tied with a
string This reduced the fat of the pam
pered animal, while a simple diet of bread
and milk restored the toneof its digestive
organs. At the end of three weeks the
smith returned the dog fully recruited.
