Supposed Feat of Strength.
Procure a piece of thin board of
soft wood, say pine; it should be a
foot and a half in length and a couple
of inches vwide. Place it upon an or
dinary kitchen table, allowing the end
to protrude half its length almost be
yond the edge of the table, covering
the board to the edge, and smooth it.
out carefully, being sure that the pa
per is in perfect contact with the
board as well as with the table. Then
announce to the company assembled
that, with no other fastening upon the
board than the sheet of paper, you
propose to strike the end of ,he board
hard enough to break it, or at least
to tilt the table. It will appear im
possible. Every one will imagine that
the newspaper will be torn in two :
soon as the end of the board is struck,.
but this .will not occur. Strike it a
smart, sharp blow with the hand or
an instrument, and the board will ca
either break off or tilt the table, and hi
remain fast to it. just as if it had at
been nailed fast. The explanation fo
is simple. When the blow is struck m
there is a tendency to tilt the end of b3
the board upon the table, but the
air having been pressed out from Ye

been created, and the compression of pe

Puzzle Picture. E
Most of the great mercantile suc
cesses of the present time, says a
writer in the New York Times, had
relatively recent small beginnings.
Merchaet prince and captain of indus
try are not pereditany titles of busi
ness nobility. A majority of those
who bear them to-day started life
poor and unknown; a majority of
those who will bear them ten or fit
teen years hence are to-4ay working
for wages or relatively snmll salaries.
The successor of New Yorl s greatest
and richest merchant, with whom suc
cessful competition seemed impos
sible, was an errand boy in a book
store in 1852. The most conspicuous
ly successful of American manufac
tures and richest man in the United
States was a telegraph messenger in
1850. A majority of the men who are
recognized as at the top to-day began
at the bottom within the memory of
the present generation. Those who
will be at the top twenty-five years
hence are to-day apprentices, clerks,
laborers, messengers or unknown
traders in a small way.
An Astonishing Feat.
If you possess a strong magnet you
can perform a very startling trick.
Hang up a sheet. Draw on it with
pencil a hook. Immediately behind
the sheet at the point where the hook
is drawn place your magnet. Now
tell yetor friends that you can hang on
this hook a key or steel ring, or any
small iron or steel object with a hole
in it. They will, of course, not be
lieve you. ,ll you need to do is to
a place the steel or iron object over the
picture or the hook and the magnet
will hold it. The object will appear
to have been hung on the hook. You
B can have a confederate behind the
t scene remove the magnet and then
h ask any one to try to hang up the bh

r havipg given a signal to your confed

Matter Made Quite plain.
A writer in the Lancet,says the Chi
cago Record-Aierald, generously sets
himself to the task of giving out valu
able information as to the amount of
food one should eat. He proceeds to
make the matter plain to the masses
"If you desire to know how much
you ought to eat per diem you must
first determine whether you are tem
peramentally anabolic or katobolic.
Then, taking into account your age,
sex, size, the amount of exercise you
get and the temperature of the atmos
phere, you should calculate the
amount of food necessary to maintain
the minimum weight of your body
consistent with the best health of
which you are capable."'
Hereafter there should be no ex
cuse whatever tor overeating or
undereating. The anabolic should
be able to jump up and crack his
heels together at least four times,
and the katobolic ought to find it
easy to turn fiipfiaps without the use
of the hands. In view of the simplic
ity of the thing it is surprising that
this whole matter was not disposed
of long, long ago to the best interests
of all concerned.

In the meantime the colored woman
had got off the train, and as it was at

Mystery of Lost Sounds. diet
An eminent scientist noticing the this
mysterious way in which sounds you

undertook an interesting experiment a
in a balloon. He found that while

quenched in the mere indistinguish- hav

Rain of Rats.
A very strange phenomenon has oc
curred in Algeria, in the district
round about Bougle, during the pas- t
sage of a cyclone, which wrought a
much damage. The natives who had
come into the town relate that during
the storm there was a regular hall of
rats and mice. The stcy, on the face 1
of it, alppears improblable, but the I
witnesses who testify to its truth are
so numerous that some amount of
credence mnlust be attached to it. It is
stated that the rodents fell in such
great quantity that during the quar
ter of an hour that the phenomenon
lasted all the fields were infested.
