Can the Eye Be Believed?
TYnf. Clnpnrede. of a Swiss univer
sity recently asked a claass of 54 atu
5ents eight simple question concern
ing the rooms they dally visited lit the
school. "Are the columns In the ves
tibule round or square?" "Is thcro a
window facing the doorkeeper"! box?"
"Is the ceiling In the large amphithe
ater plain or decorated," nnd so or..
Forty-five of the 51 students de
clared that there aa no window at
all; eight remembered that there was
a window, but each, and ail attributed
a wrong situation to It; one, more
sincere than his fellows, candidly
owned that he had not the least Idea
whether there was a w indow or not
As regard? the shape of the columns j
In the vestibule, only six answers were
correct By way of cos'lmiing the '
experiment, one day a man conaplcu-1
ously costumed burst Into the class- i
room, wh?ro he performed cer'ala an-1
tics and tittered certain emphatic j
phrases prearranged with the pro
fessor. He was theft thrust out of
the door as if he had been an ordinary i
unauthorized intruder. Here was a j
scene, says the Grand Magazine, eml- i
nently calculated by reason of Its !
strangeness and unexpect,edner.s to
Impress the Imagination of tho tu-1
dents. A few days later, on some ;
pretext or other. Prof. Claparede ,'
asked his pupils to describe to the ;
best of their recollections the person ;
and acts of the masked man. Out of
the 22 students who had been present
on the occasion only four described
the man accurately. The rest either
admitted that their recollection of the
aeene was absolutely at fault or pave
such a description that it might have
applied to anybody rather than the
correct person. -
Tha Mississippi's Power.
A 1 10.000.000 dam to be built across
the Mississippi, furnishing a force
which will generate 211.500-horse pow
er, ia the latest word in civil engineer
ing circles. This dam will furnish
more power than does Niagara Falls
t the present time, and is being pro
moted by a syndicate aggregating
1300.000,000 in capital, who have al
ready spent $50,000 in preliminary sur
Teys. etc. The article gives a clear
account of the curious, difficulties
which had to be overcome in promot
ing this project showing the govern
ment had Bjx-nt $3,000,000 in building
a canal for navigation of the river past j
the rapids opiKisite Keokuk, la., and
that tlie new water-tower scheme
would necessitate the overfloodlng o!
this great national canal. But, never
theless, says Technical World, con
gress was Induced to look with favor
on the undertaking, as the promise
was made that, although all the fed
eral works in the neighborhood would
be drowned out, new ones would bt
constructed without cost to Untie
Sam. and that $40,000 a year would
ultimately be saved the government
in the cost of operating their cauel.
It is expected that the actual construc
tion work on the dam will commence
the first of the year.

With them will go Assistant Secreta

In explaining thU change of plans. Gov.
"Gen. Funston w.ts summoned on

cause he was well acquainted with
many of thei insurgent chiefs here
and it was thought he could aid u.s,

Funston was put temporarily In com

Had the proosal to srnd threa et
pedl:lons to Cuba been carried out.
Gen. Funston would have remained
at Camp Columbia as the commander
of a brigade. Ths close association
between Gov. Taft and Gen. Bell In
the Philippines Influenced the provis

upon President Roosevelt that Gen.

Havana, Cuba. The United
States through its peace commission
ers Is not ready to announce when it
will withdraw from tha island of Cu
ba and surrender the reins of govern
laH'Qt to the Cubans, but thU action
ran not be taken until the time ar
rives when fair elections are assured.
This statement was made by Gov.
Taft lriday as a sort of valedictory
address to the revolutionists' com
mittee, with which the American com

els to ceuse hostilities and negotiate
peace. The committee had a confer
ence lasting an hour with Gjv. Tuf:,
Assistant Secretary of Slate Bacon
and Charles K. Magoon, who Is to
succeed Mr. Tafi as provisional gov
ernor, and at 1U conclusion expressed
satisfaction with the position taken
by the provisional government.
Headed by Alfredo Zayas', the com
mittee visited Governor Taft for the
avowed puriiose of requesting him to
declare the policy of ths United States
toward Cuba and the policy of 'he
provisional governor concerning ap
polnlineuta to public off.ces.
The Americans lUtcii"d carefully to
all the representations of the commit

pointedly that he could not outline ths
