Hugo Muncterbsrg Gives a Simple
Way to Conduct Really Interest
ing Experiment.
Have your friends the ability to
hold their attention, or does it become
quickly fatigued? A simple experi
ment will show you, writes Llugo
Munsterberg in the Youth’s Compan
ion. Give each person a column from
a newspaper, and have each one cross
out with a pencil every letter A and
every letter R. Keep an eye on your
watch, and when half a minute has
passed, say “Now," as a signal for
each experimenter to make a mark at
the word that he has just reached.
Keep this up for live minutes, and
then count how many A’s and how
many R’s each one marked in the first
half-minute, how many in the fifth,
and how many in the tenth, and see
how many each peison overlooked in
each half-minute.
Some persons will do well at the be
ginning, but will soon become inatten
tive. In the last four half-minutes
they will mark few letters, and over
look many. Others will do better in
the second and third half-minute than
in the first, and their attention will be
sharper at the end than at the begin

put on with a fiat brush or piece of
cloth and worked in one direction
with the grain of the wood, while on
completion of the process the room
should be closed for 24 hours. At the
end of that time the boards should be
rubbed until they shire, with a long
handled, heavy weighted broom, over
which a piece of carjyet has been
tacked, and this process may be re
peated ad libitum. Finally the floor
may be polished with boiled linseed
oil and turpentine, this mixture being
rubbed well in with a cloth and then
left for an hear or two to dry. after
which it must be again polished with
the weighted brush.
Instead of a final touch of this de

with a coat of varnish or shellac or
with some prepared hardwood treat
ment. both of which should be put on
evenly and thinlv with a weighted
brush or with an old piece of carpet.

Queer Sight Witnessed by a French
Naturalist While Making a Tour
Through Morbihan.
A professor of zoology at Lille, M.
Charles Barrios, was making a tour
through Morbihan, in France. As he
was walking along the road he noticed
that a multitude of dragon flies were
alighting on the telegraph wires. The
singular thing about it was that they
all rested at an equal distance from
each other, and all occupied the same
position, with head turned toward the

others and took its place in the line.
This chain stretched itself out to
ward the west, and turned toward the
setting sun. Professor Barrios fol
lowed the route for a long distance
and found the same strange phe
nomenon. He estimated the number
at 60,000, at least. At an abrupt turn
of the road to the south, the telegraph
line turned also. There not a dragon
fly was in sight! The wire was abso
lutely free from them! With the
change of direction it seemed to have
lost attraction for them.
Was this chance? Did the electric
currents running from the east to the
west exercise any influence upon
these insects? Was it the solar re
flection? Explain it, who can. In
any case it would be interesting to
know whether this phenomenon be an

Really Interesting Scientific Experi
ment Showing How Compressed
Air May Be Used.
An apparently empty bottle may be
made to bio \ out a candle. The trick
is really an interesting scientific ex
periment, showing how compressed
air, directly the pressure which con
fines it ie removed, tends to assume
the normal density of the atmosphere.
We take an ordinary bottle and. see
ing that it is empty and dry, we place
the ball of the thumb over the mouth
with just a small aperture uncovered.
Then, placing our mouth to this, we
blow steadily and continuously into
the bottle.
Tlie result is that the air in the bot
tle is compressed. When we take our
mouth away we insure that no air
shall escape by instantly closing the
whole aperture with the ball of the
thumb which is already pressed over
part of the opening.
Now we invert the bottle and. plac
ing the mouth against the flame of a
lighted candle, we remove so much of
our hand as will make an opening sim-
Blowing Out Candle.
ilar to that into which we blew. The
result is that the compressed air, di
rectly the pressure is removed, rushes
out and blows upon the flame. It is
well to use a small candle, as if we
have a large candle with a big flame
the pressure may not be sufficient to
extinguish the flame. If we perform
the trick in front of a number of spec
tators we must not let them see us
blow into the bottle. This part of the
performance can be done outside the
room, and we can bring the bottle in
with our thumb over the opening,
keeping it there til) the moment when
we want to release the air. This can
be done in such a way as not to at
tract notice.
Iridium, for Instance, Is Three Times
as Expensive—Osmium Is Dearer
and Heavier.
Gold is generally looked on as the
last word in costliness, but, as a mat
ter of fact, there are more metals
dearer than gold than there arc cheap
er. The number of known metals is
about seventy.
iridium, for instance, of which a big
find was made the other day in Aus
tria, is three times as expensive as
gold. Gold is worth nearly S2O an
ounce. Iridium is worth some $62,
though the price will probably come
down now.
Osmium is another metal much
dearer than gold. It costs about SSO an
ounce. It is by far the heaviest of all
known substances, being more than 22
times as heavy as water. If pennies
were Viade of osmium it would tax
one’s strength to carry the change of
half a dollar. This metal has the pe
culiar property of being able to stand
without melting the most intense heat

Germans Call Thimble a “Finger Hat”

The following ire a few linguistic

wore shoes before gloves. Poultry is
"feather cattle." while the fames for

his politeness is to threaten to *;ve a

either case, but it seems to want th*.
directness, the energy of our "kick.”
Neither has he any word for "baby" or
for “home" or “comfort." The terms

In Combination With Skirt of White
Muslin or Other Material They
Are Always Effective.
If one does not care to adopt a coat
suit of plaid for any occasion one may
like to take up the idea of wearing a
siicr’ plaid coat with a skirt of white
muslin or crepe of voile or satin. The
latter combination is quite effective
for any afternoon occasion, especially
in the open, and the adding of plaid
silk or voile in any way to a white
crepe gown is a fashion that grows in
power as people see how attractive
it is.
There is no doubt that the public
in general has accepted the coat of a
different color from the skirt and as
they have gone through the various
paths of fashion that led to black, red,
purple and green coats with white
skirts it is only a tiny step further to
ask them to wear Scotch plaid coats.
After all the coat of today is such a
diminutive affair, which ends ihe mo
ment it begins, that the dash of color
is not inartistic. These negiige coats
have a great deal of charm about
them, especially in summer, and if a
woman will try the fashion first in
cotton and wear it over a soft draped
white skirt she can then find out
without spending too much money
whether or not she looks well in the

With Other Novelties Brocaded Moire
Is to Have High Place in the
Coming Season's Styles.
Among the novelties promised for
autumn is brocaded moire. This is de
scribed as moire cloth with brocaded
satin floral figures in old French de
signs. Brocaded crepe de chine, w hich
was a conspicuous offering this spring,
promises to be a favorite material for
evening gowns. In the heavier ma
terial* all "pile fabrics," including vel
vets, chinchillas, plushes and velours
de laine are going to be worn.
Speaking of plush, an interesting de
velopment in midsummer millinery is
the new hats with soft crowns of that
material. Most of them are in white, but
they are shown also in black and col
ors. One seen on Fifth avenue the
other day had both the crown and the
brim of white plush, with a long felt
nap. The brim was faced with pink
straw, which also formed the band
around the crown and was tied in a
bow in front. The only other trim
ming was a brace of small white
wings at the left side.
Traveler’s Nightrobe.
There is a nightgown designed espe
cially for travelers who must spend the
night on a train or boat. It is prefer
ably made of black silk and has a
pocket in which toilet articles may be
tucked and a big hood, which may be
slipped over disheveled hair for the
trip from the berth to the dressing
loom. Some women wear a black eIIk
cap to save annoyance from dust and
cinders and to keep the hair from get
ting disarranged while sleeping.
Belt Modes.

This description is quite correct. Many
of the belts actuallj are hung. They j
are fastened at the waist line for a few ;
inches in front and hang down the i
back. This method of wearing the i
belt gives a strange downward and
backward Flope to the figure which i*

Don’t Poison Baby.
FORTY YEARS AGO almost every mother thought her child must have

sleep, and a FEW DROPS TOO MAHY will produce the SLEEP
FROM "WHICH THERE IS NO WAKING. Many are the children who
have been killed or whose health bus been ruined for life by paregoric, lauda
num and morphine, each of which is a narcotic product of opium. Druggists
are prohibited from selling either of the narcotics named to children at all, or
to anybody without labelling them “ poison.” The definition of “narcotic”
is : “A medicine which relieves pain and produces sleep, but uhtch in poison
ous doses produces stupor, coma, convulsions ami death." The taste and
smell of medicines containing opium are disguised, and sold under the names
of “ Drops,” “Cordials,” “Soothing Syrups,” etc. You should not permit any
medicine to be given to your children without vou or your physician know

The note about actors who try to
’■queer" other actors on the stage,
writes a correspondent, reminds me
of a story of the only time when Hen
ry Irving was guilty of such a thing,
lie was acting Othello, to the Dosde
mona of the late Miss Bateman and
every Saturday night the perform
ance was followed by a very pleasant
little supper party Desdemona was
strangled on a bed at the back of the
stage, and part of Irving s "business’"
w r as to leave the bed, and then, going
back *o it, draw the curtains slightly
asidf and peep in at the body, after
wards turning a face of inexpressible
anguish toward the audience. His
face, his shudder and the deep-drawn
sigh which he gave were among the
most impressive parts of one of his
greatest creations. Asa rule he stern
ly suppressed any levity on the stage,
but one Saturday night, as he drew
back the curtain, he said, in a sep
ulchral whisper, “What have we for
supper, Desdemona?" Alas! Miss
Bateman was unequal to the strain
and a merry laugh from the dead rang
through the house. Never again, 1
believe, did Irving break his own rule
of seriousness on the stage. It was
told me (adds our correspondent) by
my father, who was ai the supper par
ty on the night it occurred.

Alexander Graham Bell, one of the
pioneers of flying, said recently in
Washington that he was surprised to
see aeronautics still at a stage where
the aviator has to risk his life in
every flight he makes.
“We have not advanced as I ex
pected." continued Mr. Bell. ' In
deed, Mrs. Blank’s reply to her friend,
made ten years ago, is still timely.
" ‘So your husband is working on a
flying machine?’ asked Mrs. Blank's
friend. ‘Don't you think he is wast
ing his time?'
"‘Oh, I don’t know,’ Mrs. Blank re
plied. ‘He's got his life well in
sured.’ ”
