Here'N a Conjecture.
A very stransre incident occurred i
the central iriign scuooi uuuuiu^
Webster. Ia., recently. Every clock
the building stopped at exactly
o'clock in tlie morning'. It was the th
of the eruption on the island of .Tnv
and the time tlie clocks stopped vrt
within a very few seconds of the tin
that the eruption occurred, which co
or eel a village and killed several hu:
dred people. The phenomenon is nne
plained except that it was very like
due to some sympathetic electrical di
turbance in the zone in which the hit
school building' stands. Of course
may have been a very strange coinr
dence, and yet this explanation hard,
explains it satisfactorily. The plienoi
enon at the high school building wi
first noticed on the second floor of tl
building. Every clock had stopped i
Just' S o'clock. Investigation showt
that the clocks cn both tlie other fioo:
liad also stopped at the same hour. 1

Affinity of Meteorites For JJounlain
A total of 034 meteorites was know
up to 1003, of which there were If
irons and only 74 stones in tlie westei
hemisphere and 209 stones ami1 on
70 irons in the eastern hemisphere; Tl
records show only the fall t>f 850 <
these meteorites, dating back to the fi
teenth century. Professor Berwerth ?
Vienna, despite this -small number
known specimens, calculates that fit
meteorites must fall to the earth eac
year, not counting shooting stars th:
disappear in the atmosphere, and th;
fifty-five of these at least should con

finds that meteorites have been chief

Trick tliat aHHL
and One That iSBB - ?& .' v
The following story ofnl^H
was told me by the person t^^Bj
was told by the late Lord Lytton^^B
give it in my own words for the ex*
cellent though humiliating reason that
I have mislaid the manuscript.
When in India Lord Lytton often
sought out conjurers, but never saw
any but the usual feats, such as the
mango tree trick and the basket trick.
The method In each case la known.
or at all events pluusible explanations
have lieen given by Mr. Mnskelyne
and other experts. On one occasion
Lord Lytton liked something in the
looks of the conjurer who was performing
in an open'space before Ids house.
After the ordinary exhibition his lordship
asked the magician if he coulil not
do something more out of the common
way. The man said he would try and
asked for a ring, which Lord Lytton
gave him. lie then requested an officer
to take in either hand a handful of
seeds. One sort was sesame. The
nnmc of the other sort my Informant
did not know. Holding these seeds and
having the ring between his linger and
thumb, the officer was to go to a well
In the corner of the compound. He
was to dispose of the seeds In a certain
way?I think on the low wall round
the tvell. Into the depth of which he
was to throw the ring. All this was
done, and then the magician asked
Lord Lytton where he would like the
ring to reappear. He answered, "In my
dispatch box." of which the key was
attached to his watch chain, or, at nl!
events, lie had it with him on the spot.
The dispatch box was brought out.
Lord Lytton opened it. mul there was
the ring. v
Tills trick would he easy if the British
ollieer was a confederate of tlio
juggler and if lie possessed a dupli
cnte key to the dispatch box", in runt
case lie would not throw the ring into
the well, but" would take it into the
house, open the box and insert the
ring. but this explanation involves
enormous improbabilities, while it is
unlikely again that the conjuror managed
to insert a duplicate ring into the
dispatch box beforehand. I-ord Lytton
tlieu asked the juggler if lie could
repeat the trick. lie answered in the
adlriuatire. and a lady lent another
ring. Another olilcer took it. with the
seeds, as before, and dropped the ring
into the well. The countenance of the
juggler altered in the pause which followed.
Something, he said, had gone
wrong, and he seemed agitated. Turning
to the second ollicer, lie said, "Did
you arrange the seeds as I bade you?"
"No," said the officer. *T thought that
was nonsense, and I threw them away."
The juggler seemed horrified. "Do you
think I do this by myself?" he said,
and, packing up, bo departed.
The well was carefully dragged, and
at last tlie lady's ring was brought to
the surface. That ring at least had
certainly been in the water. But had
the first ring been as faithfully consigned
to tlie depths? Experts will
be of various opinions as to that, yet
the hypothesis of confederacy and of
a duplicate key to the dispatch box j
Is difficult.?I-onginaii's Magazine.

ho had selected this man. Talleyrand j
replied: "It is the only revenge which ;

However, it is terrible. What u pan- j
ishment for a man of Bonaparte's j
