the ocean, or height of the vertical

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

have said, and therein lies the clue
to the increase of pressure with
depth. If water were compressible
to any considerate extent, its den

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

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

Look ahead to the next "pay

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.

concluded that girls are often spend

they are injudicious In spending

It was this which kept him so
