The Seashell Delusion.
"They tised to tell me when I was a
boy," said a niitftlle agel man, "that if I
would hold up to my. ear a seasheli of a
certain kind I would he ir in it the mur
muring of the sea. I havo tried it many
times, and it never fail d.
"Now comes my son, a boy of 12, who
boMs up a tnmbler at The dinner table
and says; . (
" l?Cp, do you want to hear the sea
murmur? . .
"And I says yes. nndthpn heliolds the
mouth of the tumbler to his ear, and I do
likewise With mine, and. bless my heart!
there's the murmur, sura enough.- .
"And then the boy goes on to talk
about sound wares and to tell me'just
what makes tlie sound in the, tumbler
and all that sort of tiling And I say to
myself it's a fine thing, o doubt, the ad
vanced education that the boys of the
present generation are 'getting,' and yet
I am not altogether plef sed to have one
of the pleasantest of old fancies disposed
of so summarily. Hike ramblers well
enough to drink out of, but I think I'd
rather have my sea mnrmnrings ont of

The Monkey's Thumb.
Here is a little bit of natural history
which must be remembered about mon
keys. All the monkeys of the old world
have some kind of a thni ab. As Mr. St.
George Mivarr, n great s oologist writes,
"Any old world nionkt y with a rudi
mentary thumb (that is, a thumb eveu
if imperfect) is superior in that respect
to an American monkey." In fact the
American monkey has m thnmb at all.
Nature compensates in a measure for
this defect in our new world monkey by
giving him a wonderful t lil. This Amer
ican monkey tail is prehensile. It an
swers almost the , purpose of a fifth
limb. A South America j monkey gives
his tail a single hitch around the limb of
a tree, and there he hangs quite com
fortably, independent ftf hands or feet.

Casting Slelghl ells.
A question frequently asked is in re
gard to the method of pr blueing sleigh
bells containing iron ba'.ls larger than
the opening in .the bell i. Previous to
making a cast the maker of sleighbclls
puts an iron hall inside a sand core, just
the shape of the inside of the bell. This
sand core, with the jinglet inside, is
placed in the mold of t'ie outside and
the melted metal poured in, which fills
up the space between thee ores and mold.
The hot metal burns the, core so that it
can be shaken out, leaving- the ball with
in the shell. Call valve , swivel joints
and many other articles .ire cast in the
same manner. -r-Detroit Fiee Press.

- A contemporary speaks of a Vnew
kind of interviewing," where the inter

A very large per cet of these;ases

Many of the most remarkable cures
that have been accomplished by the
physicians oi tie bcott Meiucal In

of bearing lost :tr dulled from ca

for a trouble like this to get well it
self. It don't get well, but always
gets worse, until frequently the hear

Dr. Wilson has reported a case
like the foregoing, each week or two,
for the past three years in the tri

over 80 years. He is director" of a

connected with the management of
Augustana college. Is he'a man to
be relied on? Let the public judge.
Within the at three months Dr.
Wilson has published the statements
and pictures of a number of minis
ters who say under their own signa
tures that they have been c-u-r-e-d
at the Seott Medical Institute, Can
they be relied on as tellinjj tie truth?
Let the public judge?'
Dr. Wilson has' noticed a fn-nselss
tirade against him by a young firm
trying to do business in the tri-cities.
Some three weeks ago Dr. Wilson in
serted in the papers a statement to the
