A New Gamse.
A favorite new game with children
Is called "Bubbles and Bundles." Lit
tie gifts are prepared, each of which
Is placed in a box or made up into a
bundle and tied up as prettily as po3
sible in colored tissue papers, with
ribbons to match. These bundles are
suspended by ribbons on a strong
cord. or clothes-line suspended from
tree to tree, in a mianner to remotely
suggest a cobweb. The children are
provided with pretty terracotta soap
bubble pipes, tied with ribbons, and
a huge howl of soapsuds is brct:ght
upon the scene. A tablespoonful of
glycerine added to the suds will pre
vent the bubbles from breaking eas
fly. Two persons at a time take turns
in blowing. The bubbles must be
thrown off the pipes into the air, and
the children get under them and try
to blow them against the packages
that they wish for their own.
If the bubble hits the bundle, the lat
ter is awarded as a prize, and when
a child has secured one, he does not
try again. It has all the mysterious
(harm of a game of chance, without
its objectionable features.
What the Anatonlists ltave searned.
Mother Nature has odd ways of
sto;ing up energy. She hides it away
in the tiniest, most unlikely bun
dies. Common things that are handled
every day are more than likely to be
packages full of force of one sort or
another. If you were asked to decide
which was stronger, a steam boiler or
a pot of common white navy beans.
you would probably say that the for
mer was---might poss;bly eay so con
temptuously, with a laugh. Yet those
wise old fel!o's, the anstomists. have
lear ned that beans aie capable of
exerting a pressure fvlhy equal to the
largest boiler. When they find it
necessary to separate the hones of a
skull they fill it with beans and place
it in a basin of water. The beans
soon absorb the water. sv ell and slow
ly force the bones apart, for there
is no skull that can withstand the
steady, even pressure. And unless
some equally careful worlhman could
be found to do the work, no skulls
could be articulated, for rougher
methods would shatter the bones and
quite spoil the job.
Anatomists have learned many
similar tricks by watci:ing nature.
When they wish to obtain a skeleton
of a small animal-a mouse or a fish,
for example-they put the little body
upon an ant heap and leave the tiny
insect to eat the flcsh away from the
bones. In a month or six weeks noth
ing remains but a bare skeleton,
held together by the tough cartilages
-provided the wise anatomist has
protected his specimen against the
cat. If he ias not, why, of course,noth
Ing remains, not even a grease spot.
'The Queen of the Ants.
A gentleman who is very fond of
every living thing, who watchess
animals carefully that he may learn
their ways, tells a very interesting
etory of some ants he once saw. He
noticed a procession of ants going
across the path. This gentleman
watched, and knowing the ways of
ants, knew that they were emigrating
to a new colony because the old city
was overcrowded. He watched the
ants closely to decide which was the
queen. At lart he discovered her,
attended by a guard of honor. Quick
ly and carefully he lifted the queen
and held her in his hand.
She was missed at once and there
was the greatest excitement. The
guard of honor were seized by the
others and held under arrest. Ants
started out in every direction to look
for the queen. They looked every
where, and returned again afrd again
to learn if there was any news.
At last the gentleman put the queen
down on the path some distance
away from the point at which he had
captur .d her. She was discovered by
one of the scouts, who hurried back
to the point where the ants had as
sembled and told of his discovery.
A guard of honor hurried to the queen
and actually carried her back to her
subjects, who received her with de
monstrations of joy.
The new colony had been es
tablished under a bench. A hole un
der one of the legs of the bench led
to it. With the guard of honor carry
ing the queen, the procession reformed
and began its march, andt soon dis
appeared from sighi. The gentleman
moistened four limps of sugar and
put them in the path. Soon two or
three ants appeared, found the sugar,
and immediately reported at the new
colony. When they returned a number
of helpers came with them, and the
sugar was all carried, grain by grain,
to the new home. D)oubtless they
thought they had found the most
wonderful land to settle in, when
food was provided in such quantities
near at hand.

It was toward the evening of a
terribly hot day, when a troop of
wild elephants came down to the
river to bathe.
"Oh. how delightful'" cried Jumbo,
the youngest of the party. "I never
saw so much water before, and it's
so splendidly fresh and cool. WhatI

"There hats becn rain up among the

brother Raj: "that's what makes it

romp; but suddenly Jumbo stopped,
and cuddled up to his brather, say
ing: "Look! Whlat's that ?"
Raj looked up, and said quietly. -
"That's.a boat; ne don't often see
one so far tup as this."'
"What queer-looking people!" cried
Jumbo. "I never saw any like them
before, What are they?"
"They are white men," said Raj. "If
we let them alone, they won't hurt
There were men, women and chli

As the boat nca-ed them, s, little
girl droppid a cake into the water.
It floated within reach of Jambo'a I
trunk. He snapped it'sp, and tfou
it very nice.
But the child, reaching afftr it
fell overboard, and there was a grog
noise and confusion in the boat.
"She's fallen in," said Jumbo.
"What will happen next?"
"She will be drowned, I expect,"
"Drowned! No, she won't," cried
Jumbo; for he remembered the cake.
So, stepping out from his hiding
place, he curled his trunk around the
little white girl, lifted her up, and,
as the boat came up, dropped her all

"Good Jumbo!" "Dear old fellow!"
"Thank you!" "Thank you!" was

"How queer that they should know

into the jungle.
"Well done, Jumbo!" said RIj.
And Jumbo was happy, for he cared
more for the good opinion of his
brother than for anything else in the

The Inside of Your Watlh.
If you own a watch open it a ,l
look at the little wheels, springs and
screws, each an indispensable part of
the whole wonderfuil machine. The
busy little balance wheel alone is the
result of hundreds of years of study
and experiment. The watch I have
before me is composed of 98 pieces,
and its manufacture embraces more
than 2000 distinct and separate
operations. Some of the smaller
screws are so minute that the un
aided eye cannot distinguish them
from the steel tilings or specks of dirt.
Under a poyerful inagnifying glass
a perfect screw is revealed. The slit
in the head is two one-thousandths
of an inch wide. It takes 308,000 of
these screws to weigh a pound, and
a pound is worth $?:,S5. The hair
spring is a strip of the finest steel
about nine and one-half inches long,
a hundredth part of an inch wide and
twenty-seven ten-thousandths of an
inch thick. It is coiled up in spiral
form and finely tempered. The pro
cess of tcmnering was long held a
setret by a few fortunate ones pos
sessing it, and even now is not gener
ally known. Their manufacture re
quires great skill and 'are. The strip is
gauged to twenty one-thousandths of
an inch, but no measuring instrument
has yet be:en devised capable of fine
enough gauging to determine be
forehand by the size of the strip what
the strength of the finished spring will
he. A twcnty-thousandth palt of an
inch difference in the thickness of the
strip makes a difference in the run
ning of a watch of about six minutes
per hour. The value of these springs
when finished and placed in watches
is enormous in proportion to the ma
terial from which they are made. A
comparison will give a good idea. A
ton of gold is worth $627,915. A ton oat
steel made up into hairsprings when
in watches is worth $7,S82,290-more
than twelve and ocne-hlIf times the
value of pure gold. Hairspring wire
weighs one-twentieth of a grain to the
inch. One mile of wire weighs less
than half a pound. The balance
gives five vibrations every second,
300 every minute, 18,000 every hour,
432,000 every day and 157,680,000
every year. At each vibration it ro
tates about one and a quarter times.
which makes 197,100,000 revolutions
every year. In order that we may
better un.:erstand the stupendous
amount of labor performed by these
tiny works let us make a few compari
sons. Take, for illustration, a loco
motive with six-foot drive wheel. Let
its driving wheels be run till they
have given the same number of
revolutions that a watch gives in one
year and they will have covered a
distance equal to 28 complete circuits
of the earth. All this a watch does
without other attention than wind.
ing once every 24 hours. When we
compare this with the frequent re
pairs an engine receives we certainly
ought to be willing to have our
watches cleaned once a year.
How to Keep Aflost.
In speaking a few days ago to a
young girl who is known to be a fine
swimmer and perfectly at home in the
water, a recent sad drowning accident,
by which the lives of two young girls
were lost, was under discussion. The
sailing party consisted of a man, his
wife, and two young girls. After the
boat capsized, the man first placed the
hands of iiis wife on the upturned
boat then placed the hands of the girls
in the same position. By the time
that the girls had been so placed, the
body of the wife had washed under the
boat, and it was with great difficulty
that she was again got into a place of
apparent safety. By the time this
had been accomplished. there was a cry
from the girls and the work of rescue
had again to be attempted. This was
repeated until the strength of the man
was gone, a:ld it was with great diffi
culty that he succeeded in keeping his
wife from drowning while the lives of
the others were lost. Had these per
sons but known that by keeping the
feet in constant treading motion their
bodies would not have been washed by
he current under the boat, and thei
grasp loosened. all might possibly have
been saved. By keeping the feet in
motion, the body retains its upright
position, but whrn the feet are al
low-ed to sway with the current the
body is gra:dually swept under the
boat, the hands curve under, and it
is impossible for the hold to be re
tained. This is ve;y easy to accom
pl.sh. and may 'ave the lives of man
persous.---Phila -telphia Record.

The Br!tish Museum, situated on
Great Russell street, in London, was
founded in 1753. It contains collec-=
tions of antiquities, drawings, prints
and a library of about two million
volumes, 55,000 MSS. and 45,000 char
ters. The Harleian 1M88., purchased
in 1755, and the Royal Library, largely
taken from the monasteries by Hentry
VIII., and 65,000 volumes given by
George III. and George IV., raised the
library to a position of great import
acre. The first great Egyptian acqui
sition consists of the objects taken
with the French army in 1801. The
Assyrian, Babylonian and Greek col
lections are undoubtedly the best in
any contemporary museum. The pres
ent building, finished in 1847, is one
of the best structures of the "classu
revival." It was designed by Sir Rob
ert Smirke., completed by his brother,
Sidney Smirke, and was commenceu
very early in the nineteenth century.
About 50,000 volumes are added annu
ally. Modern publications in Britain
are added free of expense by receiving
grat!s a copy of every book entered at
Stationer's Hall. La Bibliotheque Na
tir.-cle, the great French library, is
the largest in the world. It ha, been
called successively ILa Bibliotheque du
Rol, Royale, Nationale and Imperials.
The Bibliotheque du Rol was original
ly in the Palais de la Cite, consisting
of the library of King John. He be
quenthed it to Charles V., who re
moved it and collected a library of C10
volumes in the Louvre. This was sold
to the Duke of Bedford. Louis XI.
partly repaired this loss and added the
first results of the new invention of
printing. Louis XII. established it at
Blols, incorporating it with the Or
leans library. The Gruthuyse collec
tion was next added to it. Francis 1.
transferred the library to Fontaine
hleau, and placed it in charge of John
Budie. Henry II. made obligatory the
deposit of one copy of every book pub
lished in the kingdom. Henry IV.
brought it back to Paris, where it
changed in location frequently, before
resting in its present quarters in the
Patais Mazarin, Rue Richelieu. Na
poleon I. increased the government
grant, and under his care the library
was much enlarged. It contains about
three million volumes and about a
hundred thousand MSS., besides col
lections of prints and medals. It is
especially rich in Oriental manu
scripts. The Royal library of Berlin
was founded by the Great Elector,
Frederick William, and opened in 1661.
The University of Berlin, it is not too
much to say, is the leading university
in the world. It is attended annually
by about 6,000 students, and has a fac
ulty of about 500 professors and teach
ers. It has a most magnificent library.
The two libraries combined contain
about 1.200,000 volumes and nearly
50,000 MSS. The Library of Congress,
as the National library of the United
States is called, was founded in 1800,
and is supported by the national gov
ernment. It contains upwards of a
million volumes (250,000 pamphlets).
Liberal provisions are made for the
yearly addition of volumes through
purchase, and in addition, the copy
right law requires that every new pub
lication shall be deposited in the li
brary without charge. Although the
library of Congress is not as rich li
manuscripts and rare books as its
great European rivals, on account of
its more recent beginning, it is never
theless richly stocked with the books
that can be obtained by purchase in
these later days, and its purchasing

treasures from such private collections

New Warshtp Is Tested.
The expectations of the naval ofi
cials were more than equaled in the
speed trial of the new battleship Ala
bama recently. The floating fighting
machine covered the prescribed course
in such remarkable time that the title,
"Queen of the Navy," has been con
,ferred upon her. An average speed of
17 knots per hour was made for a pe
riod of four hours. Although this speed
is not as remarkable as that made by
the Iowa, still the performance of the
Alabama is considered phenomenal.
During the trial the craft was not
Soverworked, and after finishing the
course was pronounced in good cond!
tion. Five sister ships, the Massacbn
setts, Indiana, Kentucky, Texas, and
Kearsage, were used as stake boats in
the trial. A triangular course was a-=
ranged and the spectacle was witne
ed'.by many people. The vessel is th-e
product of American shipbuilders. It
was constructed by the Cramps at
Philadelphia and guaranteed to de at
least 16 knots per hour. The trial
showed that she could do 17 without
trouble, and it is thought that the tim
on the trial trip may yet be surpassed.
At the monthly meeting of the Berk
County (Pennsylvania) Agricultura
society, President James McGowan at
tributed the excellent condition of the
crops in the southern portion of Berks
county to the heavy blasting that i
done at the Trappe rock quarfise, near
Hampton. Heavy charges of dynamalte
are used, and the reverberations a-re
heard for miles around. The very

The above singular combination is te th4-'rmas.t -'opted by mne a-rz Medicine
Company of St. Louis and is used in their advertisements of GV.t,''s Tasteless Chill Tonic.
To the many people who may be interested to know the origin of this odd trade-mark, the
following information is given:
In the spring of 1803, the little two year old son of Mr. E. W. Grove was taken quite sick
with malaria. Mr. Grove, knowing the virtue of his own medicine, commenced giving him
Grove's Tasteless Chill Tonic. He had taken this prescription ont1 a few days until quite
a favorable change was noted, in fact, he grew so rosy, healthy an! plump, that Mrs. Grove
ia describing his condition to her husband, remarked " Grove's Tonic makes our baby as fat
as a pig". This led Mr. Grove to thinking that the expression "as fat as pigs" used in con
nection with babies, was a very common one, and suggested to him the idea of combining a
child's race with a pig's body, with wording as above. " G,io.e's' Tonic makes children as f,
as pigs". It is an attractive trade-mark, and the remedy it represents--Grove" Tor s-is
regarded by the public as being the very best pres',ption for Malaria, Chills and 'lever.
The record of the Paris Medicine Company shows that Nine Thousand gross-Ninety c.s'
loads-of Grove's Tonic have been sold this year from Jan. 1st, 1900, and as "orders are trunW
a good index of a medicine's worth" no one can doubt the virtue of Grove's rnic. Druggiste
all sell Grove's Tonic on a no cnre, no pay basis, for fifty cents a bottle.

USE CERTAIN, ', CURE,
THE BIOGRAPH FIEND.
Publo Men's Terror, Who Threatens
Peaee of Notablea.
The camera fiend is bad enough, and
there is a continual protest against
him by every person in whom the
public takes an interest. But the bio
graph fiend, who is threatening the
peace of notables, is much worse.
Kinetoscope pictures are about to be
put within the reach of everyone. A
London concern has established a
studio where people may go to have
moving pictures taken of themselves,
just as they now go to be photograph
ed, and a cheap apparatus for the re
production of films is sold, which,
while not so good as those used in the
theaters and nickel-in-the-slot devices
yet answers the purpose. The manag
er of the studio says that it is in de
mand for weddings. The bride and
bridegroom, bridesmaids, best man
and all the rest are photographed
while the wedding ceremony is being
performed, and the happy pair and
their friends have copies of the films
as souvenirs of the occasion. But this
is not the worst. A cheap biograph
machine has been invented, by which
a person may take hundreds of snap
shots of anyone whom he chooses, and
reproduce them. It is but natural foi
the owner of a few biograph strips tc
want other films for his machine.
The worry to public people will be
great. They will be the sufferers. Fo,
instance, instead of Gov. Roosevelt's
children being photographed in bath
ing, the biograph fiend will take snap
shots of their movements, and repro
duce them on the screen as living pic
tures. The aim of the fiends naturally
would be to secure statesmen in the
moat undinnified attitudes nnasihie.
