INTERESTING TESTS MADs)BV THE GOVERN
N. V. Tribune, December 17.
Dr. Edward G. Love, the present analy
tical chemist for the Indian department ol
the government, has recently made some
interesting experiments as to the compara
tive value of baking powders. Dr. Love's
tests were made to determine what brands
are tbe most economical to use. And as
their capacity lies in their leavening power,
tests were directed solely to ascertain the
available gas of each powder. Dr. Love's
report reives the following.
"The prices at which baking powders are
sold to consumers I find to bo usually 50
cents per pound. I have therefore calcu
lated their relative commercial values ac
cording to the volume of gas yielded on n
baiis of 50 cents cost per pound,''

Curioeitios of the Voice,
Dr. Delaunay, in a pnper read recent
ly before tha French Academy of Medi
cine, pives Bomo details on the history
and limits of tho human voices, whicn
ho obtained aftor much patient research.
According to tho doctor, the primitive
inhabitants of Europe were all tonors;
their descendants of tho present day are
baritones, and their grandsons will have
semi-bass voices. Looking at different
races, he calls attention to tho faot that
inferior races, such as the npgroes. etc.,
have higher voices then white men.
The voice has also a tendency to deepen
with age the tenor of sixteen becomes
baritone at twenty-five, and bass at
thirty-live. Fair complexioned people
have higher voices than the dark-skinned
the former being usually sopranos or
tenors, the latter being contraltos or
bassos. "Tenor," says the doctor, "aro
slondor built and thin; bassos are stoutly
made and coqiulent" This may be the
rule, but one is inclined to think: there
are more exceptions to this than are
necessary to prove the rule. The same
remark applies to the assertion that
thoughtful, intelligent men have always
a deeptoned, voice, whereas trident
and frivolous persons have soft, weak
voices, lhe tones ot tho voice are
preceptibly higher, he points out, before
than after a meal, which is the reason
wly tenors dine early, in order that their
voices may not suffer. Prudent singers
eschew strong drinks and spirituous
liquors, especially tenors, but tho bassos
can eat and drink with impunity. "The
south," says the doctor, "furnishes the
tenor, the north the bassos," in proof of
which ho adds that the majority of
French tenors come from the south of
France, whilo the bassos belong to the

his cards; "now he knows whether one

This Story Takes The Caka.
Hero I met Captain Wood, who ha3
been in a whale's mouth. After edging:
carefully toward the matter, a friend
induced him to tell about it probably
for tho ten thousandth time.
"Yes, I was standing in the bow of
the boat, with tho iron in my hand,"
said he, "looking around for his maj
esty, for I thought we had given him
his death blow. Suddenly, up he came
right ahead of me, and he struck the
boat underneath with his prolonged
jaw, knocking it out from under me.
and I fell straight over into his mouth."
"What did you think then?" asked a
listener, as tho captain paused.
"Thought I was a goner," answered
the captain, "especially when he shut
his mouth on me. Hut he was, fortu
nately, in the agonies of doath, too
worried to think of me, and after giving
me one savage crunch, he Mowed me
out of his mouth, covered with blood.
I at once struck out for the boat"
"And when they picked him up they
thought he was killed," said another
captain; "though, after a good while,
he recovered, with the ugly wounds that
you see." There was a scar some
inches long across Captain Wood's
scalp, and a great lump on his side was
visible under his coat.
"What did you think when you were
in his mouth, and knew where you
were?" asked another bystandor.
"Thought he'd yield about eight bar
rol," said Captain Wood, turning over
his ouid and calmly tiring at the box of
sawdust iVrtn tucket Correspondence
