WATER OF THE WORLD.
What Will We Oo When the Population

Dr. McGce, an American scientist.
"who follows the form of Investigation
that uses weighing scales for testi
mony scales that cannot He." has
found that the average Individual uses
directly or Indirectly about 4,400 tons
of water every year. He drlnfes a too.
The vegetables he consumes reqnlre
about 400 tons for their growth, and I
his annual meat supply of 20C pounds

Gee shows that when the population
of the United States has reached 1.017.

about A. D. 2210, every drop of the
annual rainfall will be required to
maintain the food supply, and do fur

world, estimated at about 1,500.000.000,

zine. MOVING THE PIANO.
Changing Its Position In a Room Will
Affect Its Tone.
It Is said that the very act of moT
lng a piano around in a room Is sti In
dent to disturb Its tonal qualities.
When a piano has, been moved Into
the position for which It Is Intended,
is accustomed to the temperature and
the drafts prevalent, it should be tuned,
experts say. Any change of tempera
ture or movement may cause the
strings to contract or expand slightly
with the resultant loss or gain) of half
a semitone. Changing the position of a
piano Is said to have almost the same
effect as constant playing, only In the
latter case the constant action of tho
hammers against the strings tends to
loosen their adjustment and the instru
ment runs out of tune.
Sea air has also a detrimental effect
on pianos. Here again contraction
and expansion of the wires are the
chief causes of disturbance. Flanos
constructed for the tropics are much
more strongly built than those used In
temperate climates. Wood that Is not
HaWle to warp and crack is used in the
sounding boards; otherwise they have
to be brass bound and stayed to pre
vent splitting. New York Sun.

American Magazine, in an article de

"On the old Washington grounds,
when Washington was In the National
league, the players left the field by
passing under the stands, and the en
trance to the passage was closed by
a cellar door arrangement which
sloped down to the ground. The doors,
of course, were kept closed during
games, but at the top, cut In the
plunks of the stand, was a small
square hole to permit the players to
reach through and unlatch the doors
when they desired to leave the held.
"During one game 1 saw a ball,
which hjjd been thrown wild to the
plate in an effort to cut off the tying
run, roll up the doors and disappear
through that hole. The batter circled
the bases and scored the winning run.
The Chicago club, under Annou. was
beaten and protested the gnuie on the
ground that the opening existed in
violation of the rules. In the investi
gation of the complaint an attempt
was made to force a bull through the
bole. and. although It was pounded
with a bat, the ball refused to pass
through the hole until the cover gave
