How l ust In-(i Thought Travel?
Professor Ponders of Utrecht has made
some interesting esiM-riments in repr.rd
to the rapidity of thought. By means
of two instruments, vkkb lie- calls the
"npomatachopraph" a::d the 'noerna
tachometer," he obtained some impor
tant results. His experiments show that
it takes the brain .007 of a second to
elaborate a single idea. Writing in re
gard to this Professor Donders says:
"Doubtless the time required for the
brain to act is not the same in all indi
viduals. I believe, however, that my
instruments may be perfected until we
will bo able to determine the mental
caliber of our friends without our f rieuds
knowing that we are testing their apt
ness." The professor further says: "Fcr
the eye to receive an impression require -
.077 of a second, and for the ear to appre
ciate a sound .019 of a second is neces
sary. These curious experiments have
established one fact at least viz, thai
the eyo acts with nearly double the
rapidity of the ear." Philadelphia Press.
Are Versus Incandescent Lamp.
Some interesting tests have been re
cently made to decide the relative illu
minating power of the arc and the in
candescent lamp.. One company which
bas 120 incandescent lamps from 8 can
dle power to 500 candle power and six
arc lamps of 2,000 nominal candle power
on its extensive premises finds that each
arc lamp tested illuminates an area of
8,000 square yards and absorbs one horse
power, and that each 800 candle power
incandescent lamp illuminates an area
of 200 yards and absorbs one horsepower.

Why the Fight Wan Put Off.
"We always have fought at this season,"
said the Mussulman- and Hindoos of Luck
now in 1S51 to the then acting Resident
Major Hayes, "and we cannot help fight

lo." "Then we wil. postpone the flp;ht for
this year." They did, and it has not been
fought ever since. 1 xmdon Spectator.

The people who lounge at the entrance of
the Bois do Boulogne are now called the
"Ctrcle des Fanncs-," Anglice, "The Hard
up People's club." This gathering is sup
posed to be frequented by iersons who can
not afford a carriage to drive to the Bois,
but who yet want to see and, above all, to
be seen. The accommodation consists of
armchairs, which are paid for at the rate
of 4 cents a sittitur, and the plebeian bench
which costs nothing. Marriageable young
ladies with their chaperons muster there in
force on the lookout for a lord or master.
Men also frequent the" spot. They are of
all ages, from the jiert, downy lipped ado
lescent fresh from college to the made up
Every one is well dressed and impecuni
ous, and the one sex exerts all its efforts
to deceive the other. Men are looking for
wives with a dot, and ladies are in search
of husbands. Marriages which are the out
come of a first meeting at the Cercle des
Pannes are not likely to lie happy, and one
would certainly not advise friends to go
there either for a wife or a husband. But
of an afternoon there is no place like it for
noting the latest thin;? in dress, and so long
as you are careful to keep clear of the
matrimonial net there is no harm in fre
quenting that crow.Unl corner which has
been dub! ied with such a funny name.

A Ilonting Island.
In certain places floating islands are not
uncommon, but one seen three times in
1S1I2 in the north Atlantic ocean was not
only a rarj occurrence, but was besides
of p;-culiar scientific interest. It was first
seen on Jnly2S in latitude 30 degrees 3;
minutes and longitude 05 degrees west.
The second occasion was on Aug. 26 in lati
tude 41 decrees 4'J minutes and longitude
50 degrees o.l minutes, and the third time
was on Sept. l'J in latitude 43 degrees 29
minutes and longitude 4 j degrees 39 min
utes. As it was never seen after that date,
it was presumed the island was destroyed
in the autumnal storms.
On the three occasions the island was
come upon it was moving toward the Azores
at the rate of atxmt a mile an hour. Its ex
tent was about 8tXl feet each way, and it
contained much forest growth, many of the
trees thereon iieing fully 30 feet high. The
finding of such an island in that section of
the Atlantic is in Itself a curious incident,
but to scientists generally it is more inter
esting as showing the possible migration of
animals by this moans, as put forth by
Darwin. Philadelphia Ledger.
To recognize and define the impossible is
cr.c of the dis! inguisliing marks of him to
