"It is a great wonder to me," said an old chemist to a Philadelphia Rec ord man, "why more boys do not take up chemical experiments as an amuse ment. Why, I can do things with the common materials of everyday life which really seem to be more magical to the uninitiated than any of the ders that are ordinarily performed by magicians on the public stage. Some of them are so simple that by carry ing them out at a parlor entertain ment a bright boy could achieve the reputation of a magician. Now, there are those curious little bubbles of glass known variously as 'Prince Ru pert's drops' and as 'Dutch tears.' Ap parently they are little globules of glass with elongated tails made by heating a small glass rod In a flame and allowing the molten drops to fall into water. After they have cooled you may pound the thick part with a hammer or mallet, yet break them. won you cannot On the other hand, If you break a little piece off their tails, or touch any part of them with a quartz crystal, they will disappear in to the surrounding atmosphere quicker than snow will melt on a hot fire. To the person who does not know how this has happened the performance Is s& asto.^ehing as to seem uncanny." FUN WITH THE PROFESSOR. Erudite Teacher Deceived by Con scienceless Student. A well-known professor remarks that the passion for any science may make a man hopelessly narrow, in a way. As an example he cites the case of an elderly professor in Middletown, Conn., whose love for philology was so exceslve that it frequently led him to disregard the broader principles of language in his minute searches for the particles binding an ordinary Eng lish word to its Ayran or Sanskrit an cestor. Once a student thought to have a bit of fun at the learned professor's expense. Assuming an air of great modesty, he rose. "Doctor, I've been thinking a great deal of late about the derivation of the word 'Middletown.' What is your idea of it?" The professor was a bit taken back. "Really," he stammered, "I—er—real ly, young man, that is a subject that will require much reflection. May I ask whether you have chanced upon anything that would throw any light on the question?" 'It is my firm belief, sir," responded the student, with great gravity, "that Middletown is derived from Moses!" "Dear me, dear me!" exclaimed the guileless professor. And pray, sir, how do you derive Middletown from Moses?" "Very easily, doctor, replied the Joker; "by dropping 'oses' and adding 'iddletown.' "—Lippincott's Magazine. Churchyard Under the Sea. When the coast erosion commis sioners visited Walton on the Naze yesterday they were shown a spot north of the pier, and about a mile from the shore, which was formerly a churchyard, says the London Daily News. A quarter of a century ago the tombstones could be seen under water at ebb tide, but since then the sea has further encroached, and when the tide is extraordinarily low and the sea clear the old burying ground is scarcely discernible from the sea level. even Time to Move.

When people asked Miss Amanda Green what she received from her aunt in the city as a legacy, Miss Green always smiled grimly and step ped toward her fireplace. "Aunt always said she should re member me in her will," Miss Green would say, "and although 1 knew the family traits, 1 did calculate on a few hundred dollars, she being worth somewhere up in the hundred thou sands.

Had Answered All Questions in a Sat isfactory fanner. , I was staying over night with a far mer, says a writer in the Chicago Daily News, and after supper talking about educational matters, when I mentioned the fact that I had passed a schoolhouse about two miles west of his farm that afternoon and that the female teacher, who standing in the door, was an intelli gent-looking girl. "Yes, I got her the place," plied. "Then you are what is called the moderator? You had to ask her vari ous questions to see if she was fitted for the place?" we were was he re "Well, not so very many. I asked her about the Rocky mountains and the Atlantic ocean and who Shake speare was, and she answered right off.
