ELECTRICITY IN DENTISTRY.
Developed by the Operator's Feet Slid
ing on the Carpet.
The exact similarity in conditions at
tending the repetition of experiments is a
great element of success. One should be
very careful before coming to a conclusion
that his premises are correct. A striking
example of this was recently presented to
A dentist came into my laboratory the
ether day and said:
"See here. I can't for the life of me
understand what is the matter with me.
All my patients complain that when I first
put an instrument into their mouths it
pains them fearfully. I've thought it all
over and have come to the conclusion that
my instruments must be magnetized or be
witched, or. I am. I've brought some of
them to have them examined. Just let
me show you what I mean. Have you got
a sensitive tooth?"
I pointed to a molar then under process
of repair. He unwrapped some of his in
struments, and selecting one gently in
serted it into my open mouth and touched
the filling in my teeth. All I felt was the
instrument touching the filling. I experi
enced no pain.
"Good heavens, man!" said he, "what
nerve you have! What fortitude! What"
"Nonsense!" I exclaimed. "I didn't feel
"Well," said he, looking puzzled, "you
are the first man that hasn't yelled when
I touched his tooth since I moved into my
new office. I can't understand it."
I told him I would come Around to his
office in the afternoon and see if I couldn't
find out what was the matter.
Later in the day I called to see him.
"Well, have you got it yet?" he asked, as
he walked across the carpet and shook
hands with me.
"I hadn't one second ago," I answered,
"but I have now. Did you notice what
happened when you shook hands with
"Nothing but the electricity."
"That's just it. Every time you walk
across the floor to your cabinet for an in
strument you get a small charge of elec
tricity in your body, and, naturally, as soon
as you touch the sensitive tooth of the pa
tient the delicate nerve received the charge
through your instrument hence the pain.
The reason why I felt no shock in the
laboratory was simply liecause there was
no carpet to rub your feet on before you
touched my tooth."
Here we see that merely the want of a
carpet ou the floor altered entirely the con
ditions for a successful repetition of an ex
periment that had apparently no connection
with the presence of a carpet. Electrical
Indian Corn and Architecture.
Comparatively few persons know that
what Americans would call a bundle of
stalks of corn in the ear was substituted
for the fluted column in the first archi
tectural designs for the national Capitol.
Inside the old part of the Capitol, just in
front of the law library, and at the foot of
the little noticed but beautiful sweep of
marble stairway leading to the supreme
court of the United States, is a rather dark
vestibule to the "court entrance," In this
quiet place, removed from the hurry and
noise of the upper corridors, is an exam
ple, and probably the only remaining ex
ample, of the early attempt to introduce
Indian corn in stalk and "golden ear" into
a purely original emblem of American
architecture. I think there are five of
these columns, of fair height and propor
tion, each composed of a bundle of long
stalks, expanding into the ripened ear of
corn above. The stalks are not bound to
gether like the familiar fasces, but stand
alone, as if surrounding a supporting pil
lar. The American idea seems never to have
proceeded further, and seems to have been
entirely abandoned in constructing the re
maining portions of the Capitol. Probably
foreign criticism discouraged the architect,
and his professional subjection intimidated
him. But he was bold enough to leave to
posterity this example of what ho might
have done in the way of American m
blematic architecture. Harper's Weekly.
The) TJndertnker's Title.
"Why are embalmers and funeral direct
ors called undertakers?" asked George
Hollingsworth, of Temple, A. T. "They
seem to prefer the name to any other, but
they have no right to it. In England in
1014 undertakers were men of influence
who undertook for a consideration to get
such persons returned to parliament as
would prove submissive to the royal will
of King James I. The three chief under
takers of 1014 were Lords Bacon, Somerset
and Neville. They undertook to bribe the
chief speakers and men of influence in par
liament that year over to the side of the
king, with but partial success. Then there
were undertakers in Ireland in 1608. They
were English and Scotch colonists sent to
north Ireland and were each allotted 2,000
acres of land. They were men of capital
and undertook to pay a mark a year for
every six acres and to admit no recusant
for tenants. Hence the name as applied to
them. But neither the histories nor the
dictionaries give any reason for calling
the men who bury our dead undertakers,
and I have never found one who could say
why he was so called." St. Louis Globe
Democrat. Big Loaves of Bread.
The largest loaves of bread baked in the
world are those of France and Italy. The
"pipe" bread of Italy is baked in loaves
two aud three feet long, while in France
the loaves are made in the shape of very
long rolls four and five feet in length and
in many cases even six feet.
The bread of Paris is distributed almost
exclusively by women, who go to the vari
ous bakehouses at 5:30 a. m., and spend
about an hour brushing and polishing the
After the loaves are thoroughly cleaned
cf dust and grit the porteuse de pain pro
ceeds on the round of her customers.
Those who live in apartments or flats find
tbeir loaves leaning against the door. Res
taurateurs and those having street en
trances to their premises find their Bupply
of the staff of life propped up against the
front door. The wages earned by these
bread carriers vary from a couple of shil
lings to half a crown a day, or from 50 to
63K cents of United States money, and
their day's work is completed by 10 or 11
o'clock in the morning. New York Her
ald. The Water Mark In English Bank Notes.
From the superficial appearance of the
Bank of England notes you would suppose
that they could be readily imitated by pho
tography or otherwise, inasmuch as their
designs consist of little more than letter
ing in black which is almost severely sim
ple. But that greatest of all financial insti
tutions depends altogether upon the water
marking of its paper, which is wonderfully
elaborate, as you can see by looking at
the light through it. This water marking
has been imitated, but never with much
success. Washington Star.
