It is of no common occurrence to see
half-grown boys in an intoxicated

God's house of worship. The party
or parties who sell liquor to these
minors should be prosecuted to the
full extent of the law.

A Fish Aids Science.
There appears to be no limit to sci
entific curiosity, especially in Ger
many. Not long ago a scientist of
Leipzig, wishing to ascertain whether
fish are warmer than the water they
live in, stuck a needle connected with
a thermoelectric circuit into a living
fish in an aquarium. The needle formed
one element of the circuit, while the
other element was immersed in the
same water that contained the fish.
The latter was not seriously injured by
the needle and quickly became indif
ferent to it. Then as the fish swam
about, carrying the needle, the ingen
ious savant closed the circuit and kept
watch of the galvanometer. It show
ed no deflection whatever, from which
he concluded that the fish and the
water were precisely equal in tempera
ture, for had either been warmer than
the other a current would have been
generated in the circuit.Chicago Rec
