A LIVE COAL TRICK.

No one would suppose thot It Is pos

for uuy one to prove, and at the same
time the experiment teaches tin Impor

that the heal Is connected through the

This experiment with the (laming
coal is based upon tills principle and
the additional one that iineu and cot

a globe of copper uud draw a pleco of
cloth tightly over It so that there is
not a wrinkle at the top. If the linen
or cotton Ib closely woven the trick Is
nil the more certain. Tlies, holding the
cloth tightly in place, you can safely
put a glowing coal on top of the cloth,
and, while it burns fiercely, the cloth
will not even bo scorched.
The reason is that tho great conduc

tho coal before it enn burn tho cloth.
