Kntcring one of the main streets and

ti shelf built of marble, upon which
stood a framed photograph of a man.
On each side were vases filled with

HOW A JERSEYMAN EXPLAINED
IDEAS OF THIS GLOBE.

Uow the Kurth, Which Was Once a
Molten .Mass, (lot ltx Mouutnlim uuil Sem>
"If any one doubts that tho earth Was
once a molten muss and that its moun?
tain chains, its great tablelands and tho
recesses for the sens were the results of
tho cooling and settling of tho surface
and then its shriveling to lit the ever
shrinking center, let him see a world
made," said the observant Jerseymau.
"That sounds simple," said one of
his hearers, "but I haven't noticed that
there were any worlds being made just
now upon which progress was any foster
thou right here, and I can't say that I
have observed much change in this old
globe since 1 began to watch it."
"I have made mauyglobes,"declared
the Jerseymau. "not merely insensate
things to represent what we know of the
natural and political divisions of tho
earth, but miniature worlds of the days
of chaos, with every particle in them
aglow with beut aud till in motion.
And then 1 have watched them become
cold, immobile and dead, with black
. ned, roughened surfaces, und it requir?
ed no groat stretch of imagination to
feel that within the few moments which
the whole operation required one hud
bridged over millions of years in tin
history of it planet and seen it pass
through every stage of its existence,
from that of a light giving body to that ! n,,<] "ixU if ;l strong mugiiityi
of our own dead and desolate moon. | "There is a skimmer ol watt
Como with me," ho continued, "and 1
will show you the history of our world
since it tirst took form."
With rliat he led his little nudieuce to
agitation was so great Unit tue rest ot
the oxide would break and disclose tho
dazzling metal beneath.
All know the beauty of quicksilver, j
and many have seen tho glow of melted
lead or till or tho red glare of iron as it
was poured in tho foundry or furnace,
but none of diese compares with the
beauty of molten silver. Melted gold
has :i beauty of its own, but not like
that of silver. The light Which comes
from the melted silver seems as brilliant
us that from an are electric light, but
not dazzling; it is white, with a tinge
of heavenly violet, and the swirling
metal seems translucent like a pearl of
tho finest water.
"Now we will let it cool," said the
Jerseymau, removing the blowpipe from
his lips and letting his inflated cheeks
resume their natural condition. Tho
charcoal was placed on the beuch. Soon
the agitation of tho surface of tho tiny
globe of silver ceased, and tho quiescence
of the dull outer coating showed that :i
skin of metal had cooled and set in
"Mow watch I ho mountains and val?
leys form and see the mighty earth?
quakes shake tho crust." exclaimed the
Jerseymau, and as he spoke the crust,
which had been smooth and even, began
to wrinkle Sometimes the wrinkles
would form long continuous lines across
half the globe. Then in spots the whole
surface would pucker up and again all
of these would straighten out only to
form new series of puckers ami wrinkles
in other places. It was all over in half
a minute, and the globe was set enough
to drop into a glass of v ater to cool.
"Now look at it.'" said the Jersey
man. hiiudiug the globe to his visitors
caught in the interstices of the rough
eucd surf sice. That i- three or four
times as much water in proportion us
our ?arth bason it, so vott have before
a workbench and drew forth
. i von all t he feat ares of
of charcoal covered on nil but one side
with plaster of paris, u blowpipe und a j
jeweler's soldering lamp.
"I will make the globu of a dime," i
he said. And he placed a silver io cent i
piece on the charcoal. Then he lit tho
lamp, and with the blowpipe directed I
tho flame upon the dime. Soon t lie char?
coal began to glow and burn away about
iho dime in a broad hollow, and then !
tho dime turned first black and then
red, and as it approached a white heal
it drew itself together until presently it I
was a globule of molten silver.
If you have never seen such a ball of
glowing, melted silver, you have missed j
one of the prettiest of sights. On the |
outside there forms It very thin skin of
black oxide, which serves, like a wom?
an's veil, to heighten the charms be?
neath it. With the blowpipe still adding |
beut to tho globe, the silver became as
liquid as water, and tho gases emitted
by tho heated charcoal made it roll j
about in tho hollow as mobile us quick?
silver, while within the globe the metal I
could be seen agitated by intense cur- j
rents. These currents changed their di?
rection us the point of flame from the
blowpipe was moved from point to
point, and every moment the sir-face

when the speed was slackened the brake I
man opened the, door and shunted: |
"Elizabeth! E-lixabcth! 'Liz'beth!"
With tho first word the girl began to 1
move. When the brakemau shouted

This was too much for the harebrained ,
