Many ir not most writers have had to bewail the occasional fieaklshncss of tho lieu In putting down on paper some tlilui: very uiffc-rcut from that Intended by Us author. Readers of Sir George Trevelyan'.s "Mfe of Macnul.iy" will recall the his torian's horror when too late he dis covered that be had written In the Kdluhtirgh Kevlew that "It would be unjust to estimate Goldsmith by 'The Vicar of Wakctlcld' or Scott by 'The Life of Napoleon' when he really In tended to say that It would be unjust to estimate Goldsmith by his "History of Oieece." There was, too, an amus ing slip of the pen perpetrated by the grave Sir Atchlhald Alison hi includ ing Sir I'oregrlue Tickle instead of Sir Peregrine Multlaud among the pall bearers nt the Duke of Wellington's funeral. Another striking instance of the pen mechanically writing something not In tended came under notice the other day on the title page of u rcptint of u once famous book, Jane Porter's "Scottish Chlefj'." This edition, published pome jtaiij ago by a well known London house, describes MUs L'orter as "au thor of Tilde and Prejudice,' 'Sense and Sensibility,' " etc. Doubtless tho Christian name of "June" induced the slip.

When it pipe slriped like the inverted letter XT, in which the arms are of equal length. Is filled with water and each end of the pipe is put Into a sepa rate vessel full i'f water "the down ward pull" or weight of tho liquid In each of the two arms will balance the other, and If the water is at the same level In the two vessels it will remain at that level hi both vessels. But If the level of the water lu one vcsel Is lower than In tho other, since the two vessels are connected with u pipe full of wn ter, the water will run down from tho higher level to the lower. This ronstt tutes what Is called n t.lphon.

Dewar Makes Monster Ones and Then Keeps Them For Months. Tho transient existence of the soap bubble Is proverbial, but Professor J. Dewar, in a discourse recently deliv ered ut the Uoyul Institution in Lon don, explained how soup bubbles could be made to last for months nnd exhibited 'several specimens. Tho llrst requisite Ls that the air used in blowing the bubble shall be L-ee from dust. In Professor Dewnr's process the air Is filtered llirougb cotton wool, and the bubbles are blown by opening a stop cock In the air supply tube. Tor the soup solution bo prefers the purest oleic add (tested by the Iodine num ber) aud ammonium soup (not potas sium or sodium). To make a bubble durable the sac of liquid must be removed from its bot tom by Miction through tubes applied fiom outside. The lecturer showed hub bies that had endured for months and thut were more than b.ilf a jard in diameter, blown in glass vessels eon tainiug pmo uir at atmospheric pres suie. A little water is kept nt the bottom of the vessel. A uniform temperature of about SO degrees F. Is favorable to longevity. Some of Professor Dewar's smaller bubbles were nearly a year old. Philadelphia Press. THE GOOD AND THE BAD. A Banker's Advico About Bills That Applios to Life at Largo. The president of a bank when asked by a young cierk how ho could distin guish tho counterfeit bills fiom the good said, "Get familiar with the good bills and you will recognize the bad bills at sight." Here Is u vast volume of general wis dom summed up In n single sentence. This homely advice applies not only to the detection of counterfeit money, but with equal force to the detection of counterfeit in all departments of life. The man accustomed to handling only good coin, good potatoes, good diamonds, has no dilllculty in detecting the faulty. He does it intuitively. Even without lecogubed thought he Uses upon the fault.

To the trained musician, nc customed to higli grade work, a false note comes like a stub of pain. In any occupation or lino of endeavor any man fully engaged in doing the right thing will huvo no dilllculty lu recognizing the wrong. Light and wrong nre as far apart, as unlike, as day nnd night, and ho that ls most ac customed to the light Is quickest to note tho shadows. There Is only one wuy to know the bad, the Imperfect, tho false, and that is by knowing tlnj good, the perfect, the true. Chilstluu Herald. Blackbuck's Extra Nostril. Two visitors to the menagerie were discussing the why and wherefore of an opening on tho fiico of an Indian antelope or blackbuck halfway between the eye and nose.

"That ls nn extra nostril for the fastest running member of the untc lopo or deer family. Ho runs so fust that his ordinary nostrils cannot supply enough air to his lungs, and nature guvo blm this extra air channel. No other unlmal that I know of, ls so well provided.
