Ono morn ing ninny' yenrs ago he chanced In Port Elizabeth to come across a consign ment of damaged lints offered for n niero song.

When ho reached Tembulnnd, ho un loaded his stock, opened his kegs of 1 11 - nor, without which no trade was mndo lu those days, nnd legan business. Hut ho found his venture likely to provo nn unprofitable one. The natives did not want hats.

Another way Is to cut about three Indies from a hollow straw (such as Is used to suck lemonade) and to push the needle Inside tho straw. The straw will float nnd curry the nee dle. Now observe what hnnpens. The floating needlo will slowly swing round till It points north and south. Tho straw will behave lu the same way. Push It In nny other direction, nnd tho moment It Is free It swings unci; ngnln. Wo do not know who first observed tho fact thnt a fluting magnetised neo- dlo will point to the north.

When men began, perhaps 10,000 years' ago, to sail upon the wntcr, thoy used marks upon tho shore to guide them ou their way.
