At an Eastern school of cookery,
two pasha'es from a recent examina
tion paper are amusing. One question
was: "Describe a thermometer and
its notation." It brought forth this
answer: "A thermometer has two
good points, the boilicp point and the
freezing point. The former is useful
for potatoes and the latter for ics
cream." The other .-enl, was elicited
the lecturer i.i y -...;.- a pra.-tical
lesson on fish cookery, who said:
"First you take the fish and wash it
well, and then" Adul-. Pupil, inter
rUtir.g How absurd: Just fancy
having to wash a fish and after it
has spent all its life in wa.ttr, too.
An Amazing Gens rnph leal Fact.
The shortest lice that can be drawn
cpon the ctrtvh's surTace, one end bc
icj at the mouth of the Mississippi
river and tbe ot'.er at 1'ekin, China,
will cross tbe Eehring- straits. If you
doubt this assertion, tike a large
globa and a piece of thread or string
and make the measurements to cuit
yourself. When we begin the Mississip
pi river and I'ekin railroad, what do you
say to commencing it at the Asiatic end
of the Iine,6o as to get cheap labor
and cheap building material? We can
easily ship our almond-eyed help back
after tbe road is finished!

The soundness of a beam or lojr
can be accurately determined by the
sense of hearing alone. The car
should be applied to one cad of the
beam, while the other is struck with
a hammer. If the sound is clear,
distinct and sharp, the beum is sound
in every part; if dull or rcuftled, de
