When you drink lemonade through a straw do you pull the fluid to your mouth or is it pushed up? It surely seems that you are pulling the lemonade, fairly dragging it up with your breath, but what you are really doing' is clearing a place in the straw for the lemonade to fill as the air pushes it up from the bottom. When we suck lemonade or any other liquid through a tube or straw we lessen the pressure of air inside the tube, and the pressure of air on the surface of the liquid pushes it at once up through the tube to the top, where we have made room for it. By our sucking we make room at the top of the straw and the air pushes the lemonade up to the space we 'have made. Every kind of sucking or suction, to use the right word, is of the same' kind. What seems like pulling is really clearing the way so that what ever is behind can be pushed upward. o- DISHES AMERICAN GOVERNORS LIKE BEST Mrs. Byrne, wife of Governor Byrne of South Dakota, writes a most inter esting letter about her nusband's fa vorite dishes.

After dining and lunching on such food as this my husbancl is ready to solve any questions of state that may, be brought before him.
