There is Indeed a great deal that is apt to prove pussling In the laws of hydromechanics, and probably many persons find them stumbling blocks. For Instance, you are not likely to meet at random with peo ple ready to believe, on your say. so, that a dam that would hold a small pond would hold the Atlan tic Ocean just as easily, provided that the ocean was no deeper than the pond. You will generally find that people suppose that the sise of a body of water, L e., Its super ficial extent, or rather its volume, governs the amount of pressure that It exerts on its sides. But the fundamental hydrostatlo law nays that the pressure depends only on the depth and not on the quantity of water. And this is tue no matter what the unit of measurement may be, whether a sqoalnch or a square foot or a Consequently, a dam , that ' is gong enough to hold back a lake aie long will also be strong ?meugh to hold back a lake a hun dred miles long, or one as long as the ocean is broad, provided al ways that the depth Is the same.

The same old crone who had wished her a handsome husband in the- days of story reading about the Witch Pig wished herrone now; even wished her one when she was riding with Sir Fergus and looked hard at him as she said it, but Alleen's laugh showed how heart. free she was. She told Bridget about it that evening "and she looked at Sir Fergus." ,'be couldp't have locked at a handsomer man," said her proud chaperon. "Oh. maybe," smiled the girl. "Sir Fergus is good-looking, but then he's old. Bridget-you know that." renF y u "I don't know anything of the sort-what do ,you mean by old?

This is found sim ply by multiplying the pressure at the bottom of a cube of water one Hoot bigh, which st about 62% pounds, by the nunpber of feet in three miles-Ofea menzsd depth of the ocean, or height of the vertical retaining wall. That pressure would be exerted in every direction at the ocean's bottom, not only downward and sidewise, but also upward. That is the peculiarity of a liquid, that it transmits the pres sure due to its weight in all direc tions, so that its particles a squeese one another with the e pressure. "Pressure due to its weight," I have said, and therein lies the clue to the increase of pressure with depth. If water were compressible to any considerate extent, its den sity. I. e., its weight per unit vol ume, would also be greatly increased at the bottom of the ocean, but. in fact, water is so little compressible that, for our present purpose, we may neglect the slight increase of density caused by the great pressure. Thus every cubic foot of water weighs sixty-two and one-half pounds, and when 15,840 cubic feet of water are superposed in a verticul line, the weight and the pressure at the bottom will be, as already stated, 9000 pounds. And owing to the property of the water of transmit ting any pressure to which it is sub jected equally in all directalons, this presure will be exerted against the sides, clods to the bottom, as well as perpendicularly upon the bottom itself. It is this horisontally transmitted pressuer that tends to push out the bottom of a dam, and the engineer being able to calculate its amount from his knowledge of the depth of the water thickens and strengthens his dam proportionately at the bot tom. The dam is made less thick at a greater height beausne the pres sure decreases with diminished depoli, going back to our inaginary ocean inclosed in a tank with vertical Walls three miles high, let us suppose the ocean to dimsInish In breadth until, from big 2,000 maile. wide -from oast to'ws.It be comes only a long tank, say fifteen feet acres.; what will be the effect upi the pressure, per square foot, at the bottom and aides.

But, once sure that she was gone, he slipped hurriedly out of bed and just as hurries:, dressed. He gathered together' the things which hE felt he udight need. packed them in his- hand-bag and slowly and deliberately inbpected the studio. Then, with that vale. dictory look still in his eyes, he took up the packed hand-bag and stepped out of the room, carefully and quietly closing the door be hind him. An hour later he carried -his heavy bag down the narrow stair way leading to Angelo Dellaslo's cellar in Shimer place. "Well, I've come," he calmly an nounced to the plaster-powdered Italian stooping over a white pine box in which three dosen casts of Dante's head were being packed in chopped straw. But little more than' blank in credulity showed on the face of the brown-eyed Angelo. "I mean it," explained Storrow, putting down his bag. "And you needn't worry about my not work ing. I'll give you all you can han dle. All I want is enough to eat and a place to sleep. That's fair, isn't It, until I show you what I can do?" But Angelo, as he stood dratch ANECDOTES OF THE FAMOUS MARIE ANTOINETTE. Royalty used to be very fond of the Bois de Boulogne. Ralph Ne vil, the British traveler, has a good story about Marie Antoinette. It was here, he says, that Marie An toinette, having taken a fancy to donkey riding, was thrown by a re fractory Neddy, seized with a de. sire to roll. The Queen, quite un hurt, remained seated es the ground, laughing immoderately. As soon as she could command her countenance, she assumed a mock gravity, and, without attempting to rise fromn her lowly position, commanded that the grand mistress of ceremonies should at once be brought to her side; and when the lady thus summoned stood, in no good temper and with dignified aspect, before her, she looked up and said. "Madame, I have sent for you that you may inform me as to the etiquette to be observed when a Queen of France and her doukey have both fallen-which of them is t o get up first?" OLADSTONB. It was always amusing to watch Gladstone's face ..when he came be fore an enthusiastic audience either in the outer world or- within the House of Commons.

He studied the newcomer with much concern, and then the cast-coveraJ cellar walls, and then the brown tinted bust of Dante which he still held in his hand.

So the matter was decided, then and there. Storrow became one of that little family In Shimer place shadowed by the mottled walls of tenements, submerging himself in that crowded corner of the East Side where even to hear his native tongue was to prove a novelty. There he proceeded to make himself phantas mally at home entering . into the work allotted to him with a preoccu pied ferocity which more and more tended to perplex the mild-efed Angelo. There, down the na row canyon of a side street a-flutter with multil colored bedding and washings, a jouous and noisy side street that seemed almost Neopolitan in Its color and movemen, Storrow saw spring come to the city.

H AS your boy a pocketbook? Is his hand trained by habit to reach directly for it when needede and to defend it when mis treated? If your young son-or your grown son, for that matter-depends on louise change in his pocket as, a souroe of payment of his bills, he is a dependent, loose spender. Sc the knowing ones have just decided. Loose change, loose spender; purse habit, careful spender. How does that soilnd as a maximum of' thrift for the young? A group of parents, after' spending two hours in a conference over teaching thrift have~ practically agreed titat -the test is a sound one. Train your boy from the first to use a purse and request him never to let it become entirely empty. Rtather than spend the last nickle. go without the thing desired. Glet the habit of being never broke. Look ahead to the next "pay day," is another Item in the boy's purse consciousness. It is a month hence and only $2.00 for spending money to stretch over the period? Then, let the boy decide in advance to spend only about his quota of fifty cents per week. He will soon learn to guage In advance the siz: of his purse and make its contents reach to the point intended. Further elements of the "purse habit" for the boy requires that he alway's carry his purse in the sanm" pocket, that he learn to shIft it from one garment to anotherf when changing clothes, and that he thinl: of its safety when retiring at night. The girl and her money also cam" in for a brief discussion. It was concluded that girls are often spend thrift. because they are not taught d'finitely to be anything else, that they are injudicious In spending and making investments purel' frorn lack af instruction, and they need the benefit of every posfsile device of thrift training quite as much as do theIr brothers.

Playing With Art. And down that echoing conyon, in the paling afternoons he saw the shadows grow purple apd the gold en mists that hung over the city deepen to a wine-glow like the wine-glow that once hung warm over his native mountains. And if in his heart a great unhappiness lay sealed and coffined, he strug gled none the less determinedly to keep the lid tight down on that casket where his lost hopes slept. It was this which kept him so doggedly and so desperately close to his work. Angelo saw to it that he was well supplied with model ing clay and wax. And the new found maker of images, freed from all restraints, contemptuous of criticism, careless of results, played with the lost art. He let his fancy laugh, lightly and cynihally, into the ha'penny forms that were demanded of him. He learned quickly enough from Angelo the limitations in form an] line imposed upon him, the neces Respiratory Troubles By Brice Belden, M. D. R ESPIRATORY infections are extremely prevalent in northern American latitudes particularly in the winter time, and it behooves us to look care fully into their causes, with a view to the reduction of pneu monia. common colds and bron chftis. There is a tendency to blame the respiratory infections upon the great variations in temperature' which are met ith in the northern American latitudes, and upon our somqtimes rigorous cli mate. but thesfators pale inti inslgnificance when compared wit~ the custom among Americans of nverheating and under-ventilating their homes and places of busl ness. The respiratory infection* take a sudden leap every year when we begin to close windows and use artificial heat. There is les pneumonia in Great Britain than in the United titates. The English do not overheat their dwellings as do the Americans. When the Rhodes scholars began to go to Oxford they found their living and working quarters un comfortable, as it seemed to them. because of the lower temperature maintained. But thessuperior hy-~ gienic wisdom of'the E~nglish i e flected in their lower pneumonia rate. The intensive work at the winter season, the lessened amount of outdoor exercise, the tendency to overeat, and the fewer hours of sleep, all make for a general low ering of resistance during the cold season. ' Thus the orgariisms causing -em piratory infections. althoogh they may be no more numerous in the winter than in the summer time, find the mucous membranes of the nose and throat unable to with stand their agaults, for if the gen eral bodily defenses be low, then even the mueous membranes share .n the fall of resisting power. Then in the winter time we tend io crowd together in indoor plaoee, which fneilitates transissinn of naniqmms from iperann to luerse n. and the virulence n'i thqoe. g ims is muertased by such migr-auen.

Yet what he modeled was something more than the bijoutry whose natural haven was the beer-parlor and the bar ber-shop wall. If he approached his work with cynical and careless hand he also brought to it the airi ness born of indifference. And day by day he built up his models until there came into being that sm"li array of figures which brought joy to the heart of Angelo and Maria and were destined later on to run like a nettle-rash across the coun try. His first figure, "The Bather," was an obvious imitation of "Bou guereau, with the Deilasio influence too much to the front. But his seeo ond figure, "The Diver," caught at first-hand from a naked urchin on the string-piece of an East river wharf-end, had in it the unsup pressed spirit of youth and vitality, made doubly effective after the in spired Angelo hit on the expedient of dipping the finished cast in a stain of copper-brown.

IT'S not the medals you have won and wear with so much pride, it's not the mighty feats you've done, your warlike skill with sword and gun; but only how you've tried! For instance, there was Jimmy Jinks, who worked with might, and main; he seldom slept but forty winks, and labored harder than the Chinks through sunshine, sleet and rain. He had his share of garden sass, a porker and a duck; .but Jimmy never did amass a fortune in the bloated class with that of Van derluck. He had to hoe his peas and beans and feed his faithful goat;-he never strolled through foreign scene4, -he never lolled in limousines or wore a dinner coat. But gladly through the rain and shine he went his little round; you never heard Friend Jimmy whine; he always said that things went fine upon his plot of ground. He worked and sang from morn till night, still chasing worm and pest, and when the weeds came or the blight he did not say, "No use to fight!" but just, "I'll dlo my best!"
