Bound and round the wheel goes, From early morn till night; The mill stream turns it as it flows, And then runs out of sight. But there the old mill wheel remains, And lets the mill stream run; And if it shines, or it it rains, It sings, at set of sun: Drip, drip, drip, drip, drip, drip, drip. Bond In.

A sharp sword Is then passed through the sides of the basket and is pulled out dripping with blood. After the spectators have been duly horrified at the apparently atrocious murder, the basket is No. 3.14. A Hidden Proverb. Select rightly one word from each of the following quotation and the whole will form a very common proverb: opened and shown to be empty, while the Ohlld makes his appearance at a little dis "Prove ail things; hold fast that which if Many a wave from off me will bear a gallant good." "Oh, a dainty plant is the ivy greenl" tance, alive and unhurt. The trick, as per snipl Drip, drip, drip, drip, drip, drip, drip, formed by the skillful orientals, is a very sur prising one, but the .explanation, as given by But for me the miller in the tavern could not s "Be wisely worldly; be not worldly wise. "For me the gold of France did not seduce." sip! Hobert Houuin and published in La Mature, Ii remarkably simple. "I will know your business that I will." "The field yet glitters .with the pomp of SCIENCE AND PROGRESS. ill THE MAGIC BASKET. As might be supposed, the secret of the trick lies in the construction of the basket, which is represented in the engraving, Fig. 1 showing it as it appears when the child is first placed in it, and Fig. S3 showing it laid on its side and opened so that the spectators may see that it is empty, the double sides, A, C, B, swinging outwardly and allowing the child to escape into the flowing robes of the juggler, to emerge from thence while the at tention of the audience is distracted by the passing of the sword through the sides of the basket and into a sponge filled with some red colored substitute for blood. A similar basket or box can be easily con structed, and when skillfully handled can be used to produce some surprising illusions. The movable sides, A C and B C, are fastened firmly together and turn on a hinge at C. In the illustration the end of the basket near est the spectator is omitted, to show more iully the interior construction. The Peculiar Influence of Antipyrln. The new coal tar product called autipyrin, discovered by a German chemist, is a com' pound whose remarkable qualities have brought it into use the world over. It is claimed that it has the power of reducing the temperature of the body by several degrees, and so is of vast utility in treating fevers and feverish stages of many diseases. It does its work by depressing the action of the heart, and generally when employed by physicians it is accompanied with digitalis to neutralize its influence in the latter regard. Women use it partly because it is a sedative and partly be cause it makes the complexion beautifully clear and pale by keeping the blood away from the surface of the body. The habit, like all others, grows upon the person who prac tices It It does harm, however, irom. the first With women who are weak it increases their weakness; with those having a predis position towards heart disease of any sort, it Increases the tendency to a terrible extent Besides these results, antipyrin exerts a pecu liar influence upon the blood, which is not yet thoroughly understood by the faculty. It seems to undergo somo decomposition or breaking down when absorbed by the system, developing unknown compounds, which either attack the blood itself or else powerfully to fluence the nerves and ganglia, which con trol the vital functions. Elastic Traces for Draft Horses. Six years ago the directors of the Eastern railway of France began to harness all the horses employed in shifting freight cars at their Paris station with traces made of chains having a strong spiral spring inserted in them. A large number of horses is em ployed in this service at the station, and the effect of the change has been very satisfac tory. It is claimed that a considerable gain has been made in the durability of the har ness and the regularity of the work through the diminution of the number of chains broken in the service, while the horses have done then1 work better and with less fatigue. These elastic traces are now adopted in all portions of the vast network of lines under the control of the company referred to. . The Flying Pendulum. In the . accompanying illustration is repre sented a model of a pendulum of recent in vention,' which has been applied to clocks With some success. - It is described as follows by Scientific American: FLYING PENDULUM. Two cross bars are supported from the base by two wires. In the lower cross bar and in the base is journaled a wire having a hook at the upper end. This vertical wire carries a curved arm, to which Is attached a thread having at its extremity a small weight, such as a button. The 'propelling power in this model consists of an elastic rubber band placed on the hook on the vertical rod, and received in a book on the little crank shaft in the upper bar. The rubber band is twisted by turning the crank, and the crank is pre vented from retrograde movement by the wire catch at the side of the bar. . As the arm is carried around by the power Stored in the rubber band, the weight on the thread is thrown outward by centrifugal force. When it reaches one of the side rods, it wraps the thread several times around the rod, thus holding the arm until the thread Is unwound by the action of the weight, when the arm describe another half revolution and the operation just described is repeated. The dissipation of fog by electricity is be ing agitated in London. THE OLD MILL WHEEL. Round and round I cannot go When the bleak winter comes, And wind and snow do bravely blow; But when the brown bee hums, I bear the children laugh and play, . I hear the crackling corn, And merrily, all through the day, The gay wind blows his horn: Turn, turn, turn, turn, turn, turn, turn, I make the fires in the cots upon the hillside burnt Turn, turn, turn, turn, turn, turn, turn, When man is older than the world he need not live to learn I Round and round I gayly turn From spring till autumn flies; My humble role I do not spurn, Nor pass my life in sighs. I do the very best I can And try to be content; And, since my modest life began, I've sung, when day was spent: Swish, Bwish, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, I clothe the goodwives' children, and I nil the - goodwives1 dish I Swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, swish, The corn I crack pays for the goodwives1 meat and bread and fish 1 A Story for Little People. A jolly oU beast to ride is a donkey. Maria, whose picture is here given along with that of her son William, is, according to Little Men and vv omen, a peculiarly entertaining nnimn.1, MARIA AND WILLIAM. 'You see how Maria sticks up her loner ears, and looks as bright and knowing as can be. But if you should get on her back or harness her up, down they would go, and she would look just as meek and pretend she was too weak to go, only lust walk slow. "Donkeys are great humbugs; but thoy are knowing. And they are strong, too. They can draw big loads. "But their brayisawfuL Hoe-haw I hee haw I is the way they go. My Uncle John says it sounds just like scraping a lot of old brass kettles together. "It's great fun to ride Maria backwards, with your back to her head. Then she sticks up her ears and goes! She likes the fun, I guess. "In some countries they dress up their don keys with little tinkling bells and bits of silver on their bridles, and blue and scarlet ribbons. "I think Maria would like this." Prescriptions for Fits. Though no doctor, I have by me some ex cellent prescriptions, and as I charge you nothing for them, you cannot grumblo at the price. We are most of us subject to (its, and am visited with them myself, and I dare say that you are also. Now, then, for my prescriptions. For a fit of passion, walk out in the opeu air. You may speak your mind to tlio wind without hurting any one, or proclaiming yourself to be a simpleton. r or a lit of idleness count the tickings of a clock. Do this for one hour, and you will be glad to pull off yqur coat the next and work like a negro. For a fit of extravagance and folly, rro to the workhouse, or speak with tho ragged and wretched inmates of a jail, and you will be convinced Who maketh his bed of briar and thorn. Must be content to lie forlorn. For a fit of ambition, go into the church yard, and read the gravestones. They will tell you the end of ambition. For a fit of repining, look about for the halt and the blind, and visit the bed ridden and afflicted, and they will make you ashamed of complaining of your lighter afflictions. For a fit of despondency, look on the (rood things which have been given you in this world. He who goes into his garden to look for cobwebs and spiders will find them, while he who looks Tor a flower may return into his house with one blooming in his button hola A Problem In Threes.
