Did you ever notice that the wheels

The reason for this is that in rounding
a curve the outer rail is. of course, a
little longer than the inner one. The
difference is very little, but it would
be enough to make an engine "skid"
unless it were reckoned for. In the
beveled wheel the higher part, with its
greater circumference, is forced against
the outer rail by the very tendency of
the engine to drive straight ahead, and
with the other wheel the smaller cir
cumference rests on the rail, thus over

THE FOURTH DIMENSION.
Tells What It Is, Though
May Not Quite Grasp It.
The fourth dimension is a property
of space quite beyond the sense per
ception of men. an abstraction derived
from the results obtained by well com
prehended processes in the higher
mathematics. Certain things happen
in these computations which are in no
way susceptible of explanation in a
space restricted to the three tea chest
dimensions of length, breadth and
thickness. From a sufficiently consid
erable number of such phenomena the
theory has been evolved that space has
a rourtu dimension.
Iu the common progress of mathe
matical st inly the need of such trans
cendental dimension tirst arises in the
specific case of that plane section of
the cone designated the hyperbola. At
an infinite as well as in all intermedi
ate distances of that curve from the
p.tint of origin the line Is continuous
in a given direction; if now to infinity
n single unit lie added the curve comes
into view in the diametrically opposite
In this elementary demonstration the
fourth spatial dimension appears to
suggest sphericity, but this is only the
beginning. It is still under careful ex
amination by mathematicians. Sciol
ists at one time seized upon the idea in
explanation of thought transference,
psychic phenomena and the whole hoo
doo range in general. New York Sun.
The Artist Enraged the Critics,

tures to er.hibitlous. to be sure, and
good pictures they were, but no one
paid any particular atnuion to them !
tir said anything about tht:m. I
One day Millet conceived an idea.
He painted a picture of a lady in black !
sitting on u bright red sofa, stauding I
against a vivid yellow background.
The effect was just a trifle startling. I
Friends who saw it in the process of
production expostulated with him ami
asked him what he was going to do
with it. They were astounded when
he announced that he was going to
send it to the exhibition. They told
him the critics would "wipe the floor"
with him. "They can't do that with
out mentioning me." said Millet quiet
ly, "and they've never even done that,
To the exhibition the picture went.
It killed everything within twenty feet
on either side of it. You couldn't help
looking at it. It simply knocked you
down and held you there.
The critics got Into n towering pas
sion over it. They wrote whole col
umns about it. They exhausted the
Knglish laneuage In abusing it. They
ridiculed the committee that permit
ted it to be hung. They had squibs and
gibes about It, but every time they
spoke of It they mentioned Frank Mil
let. He suddenly became the best
known artist in town. Somebody, be.
cause of the stir it had made, bought
the picture at a good price and re
moved It to the seclusion of his own
When the next exhibition came off
Millet bad another picture ready, one
of a very different ort and very good,
but no better than others whicli he had
exhibited before. The critics had much
to say about It and "noted with pleas
