THOUGHT OUT BY JUVENILES
Examination Paptra In Amsrican Pub
lic Schools Are Rsplsts With
Unconscious Humor.
Every once In awhile some school
teacher reveal to the world some of
the unconscious humor of her pupils
as shown In their1 answer to questions
In Uielr school tests. One such an
awe) sent by a schoolmsrm of Spring
field, 8. D., sounds like It might be a
criticism of much of the literature of
the day, for the pupil remarks !
"Sentiment la mostly of dust or oth
er Impurities that It may act and this
usually settle at the bottom."
Another answer seem to disclose a
serious disorder from which the moon
I suffering, leading to the conjecture
that what pscudo scientist have mis
taken for efforts to signal the earth
may be but frantic call for the doc
tor. The pupil say:
"The moon ba sort of blister on It,
some of them have basted and have
formed deep crust."
"Itlvers carry their toad In solution
nnd expansion," but qualifies thl dis
concerting statement with another
which says: "Iiencfactors which Influ
ence the amount of runoff are, If they
are streams In desert, most generally
they are nlways short."
Another young scientist explain the
formation of snow by the statement
that It I formed by the freezing of
the ntui'Mphere that I on the air, and
another explain the formation of rain
as the small particles of Ice that get
so big they cannot stay In the air, and
so come down ns rain. May Strana

WOOD THAT WILL NOT ROT
Experlmenta Mad In France Have
Dcmonitrated the Qreat Value
of the Mingove.
The wood of tho mangnve tree,
which flourishes In French tlulann,
Is being exploited In t'runco as a
wood which will not rot At leant
It bus withstood nil expoiuru and ef

of experiment by the olllrlals of the
Trench railway service.
Kvery one of the many samples

priKt-tmes of Inducing decay, be
haved faultlessly, and It would seem
Hint tlin wood Is rot-proof. The grnln
of the wood, Is so clow- ns nrnctlcntly
In exclude moisture. Its density, In
deed, Is placed at 10, as against 40 In
fir and 70 In oak.
In nddltlon to this closcnesa of flbVr
the mungove has an unusually large
amount of tunnln In Its composition.
This protect It from Invasion by In-
.sects. It also prevents the multipli
cation of various germs, and Is a spe
cific ngnlnst such wood maladies as
mold, damp and the like.
It has other desirable qualities. For
Instance, testa show that . while It
Is not brittle, It present twice the
resistance to fleiatloii that oak does.
It has about tho sume potency agulnst

old ponds Into "lakes"; Walden pond
was duly mado "l.nko" Walden. It
Is about a mile south of Concord and'

Tho scenery of Walden Is on a hum

nor can It much concern one who has
not long frequented It or lived by Its
shore; yet this pond Is so remarkable
for It depth and purity a to merit
particular description. It I a clear
and deep green well, half a mile long
and a mile and three-quarter In cir
cumference, nnd contains about Uttt
acres; a perennial spring In the midst
of plnn nnd oak woods, without any
visible Inlet or outlet except by the
clouds nnd evaporation. The surround

on the southeast and east they attain
