How to See Through Paper.
A ery remarkable experiment
which tiny one can repent with very
little trouble has been unearthed by n
German Tnko n plcco of paper of
such thlcknesi that, when It U laid
upon n piece of printed matter, tho
characters Just show through hut can
not bo road Placing It over n printed
sheet. Impart to It u circular motion
to and fro, nnd to jour' surprise you
will (Ind that now )ou can read the
print lie low tho paper.
It Ih rather dllllcult to explain this
peculiar effect Tho explanation of.
fcred Is that the paper has thin placed
In It, nntl by rnpldly moving It over
tho print, etery p.irt of tho printed
matter Is exposed In turn underneath
one or tho other of tho thin places In
tho paper, mill thus tho entire print
can bo read However that may bo.
the experiment la Interesting nnd very
