NORTH WIND'S GIFT.
A boisterous fellow indeed is North
Wind, but ho is not always as rough as
ho ia known to be on some occasions.
Ho may be as gcxtlo cs a slumbering
babe ia its cradle, bo may bewitch all
living things with the tones of his lyre,
or ho may burst with the might of an
all powerful giant upon tho world of
naeu. That was a mischievous prank
ho played iu days of yore on a boy in
Norselond and whom wo'will call Olaf.
Pay hood and yon shall learn about it
Olaf was tho only son of a widow,
and sho was both feeble and poor. She
had tanRht tho boy to wait oa her, and
this made him kind and thonghttuL
Ono day sho sent him for some float
to tho storehouse. This was a frame
building, raised from tho gronnd on
wooden props, and had to be reached
by a flight of stairs, Olaf ran lightly
up tho rteps, got tho flour and was turn
ing to ho-stcu down again when North
Wind camo puffing and panting that
way, canght yptho flour and boro it off
through the air.
Olaf went back for more finnr, but
the moment ho .sit foot oa the stairs
North Wind raorted and sniffed alxrat
him. and. pips! awy went the flour. If
yon'll believo me, the tame thing hap
pened a third time, and now Olaf was
positively angry, for it seemed quite
too provoking that North Wind ehmld
act in frni-h a senseless fashion. So Olaf
made np his mind that he wtfnld go in
seart h of tho thief and demand back
Ho set out at once, but ho walked
many a long, weary milo More he
camo at las to North Wind's home.
North Wind had quieted down and
was in a most gracious mood when Olaf
presented himxclf before him.
"Good day," said Olaf. "I hope you
aro well. Mr. North Wind."
" The same to yourself, my boy, said
North Wind, and bis voice was gruff,
bnt not nr-kind. "What brings you
here, if I tuny atk?"
I"vo come," said Olaf, "to see if
yon '11 bo so kind as to gi vo mo lack the
flour yon took from me cm the store
house stairs. Mother and I are poor,
and if wo los? tha litilo wc have we'll
starve to dexth."
"I haven't your flour," ssid North
Wind, "but since you "ro . so badly off
here's a tablecloth for yon. It will sup
ply you with all you want to eat and
drink if yon but say, 'Aly cloth, spread
yourself and serve up all sorts of good
things. ' "
T hunting North Wind with all his
heart. Olaf took tho cloth and started
for home. As the way was so long, he
couldn't hope to get back to bis mother
that night, so ho stopped at a wayside
inn to rest until morning.
When tho peoplo at tho inn began to
prepare the evening meal, Olaf thought
he wonld surprise them. So he threw
his cloth on a table in the corner, say
ing: "My cloth, spread yourself and serve
up all sorts of good things."
Scarcely had ho spoken before the
cloth-did aa it wus bid, and every one
in the room was filled with wonder.
There was no ono better pleased than
the landlady, for she thought how much
hard work and trouble it wonld save
her if she had such a cloth.
Sho spoke with her husband about
it, and in the middle of the night he
stolo into Olaf "s chamber and changed
tho cloth for one his wifo had given
him that looked like it.
When Olaf woke the next morning,
rested and refreshed, he set out at once
for home, taking with him the wrong
cloth. Ho got there safely the same
day and ran to his mother, erring:
"Well, I've been to see North Wind,
and he's not so bad, after all. Here 13
a tablecloth bo gave me, and it in of
the kind that if I just say the word it
will furnish us with all we need to eat
"I'll have to sco that with my own
eyes before I can believe it," said his
mother. '. .-- '
Olaf laid the cloth on a table, and
with the air of one who knew what he
was about said :
"My cloth, spread yourself and aerrv
np all sorts of good things."
But never so much as a crumb of dry
bread did tho cloth serve.
"There's no help for it," said Olaf.
"I'll have to go back to North Wind and
ask him the meaning of this."
Away he went so tast that he reached
North Wind's home that same after
noon. "Good evening, Mr. North Wind,"
aid Olaf.., ... . , -
" OooC rvptdng, my boy," said North
WitrtJ. What now?" --
"I want my rights for the flour you
took. That tableloth is good for noth
ing." "Well, here is a ram." said North
Wind, "that will turnish you with all
the gold coins you want. All you hare
to do is to say, Sly ram, make money. '
Olaf thought this was pretty nice,
and be went off feeling well content.
If be bad gone straight home, be would
have had no further trouble, but feel
ing tired he stopped at the wayside inn
to rest for the night. Before be gave bit
orders be thought he would try his
ram. and sure enough be sood bad a
handful of pure gold coins.
The landlord saw Una and thongLt

"North Wind is a pretty good fel
low," said Olaf when he got home to
his mother. "Here's a ram he has giv
en me that will make all the money we
want if I bnt say tho word."
"It will tako a great deal to make
me believe each stuff," exclaimed Olaf 'a
"My ram, make money," cried Olaf
promptly, but never a coin did the ram
"I knew it was oil nonsense," wailed
tho widow, and that was all the com
fort Olaf got.
Without another word he sped back
to North Wind and told him tho ram
had proved absolutely worthless. He
had como now to demand his rights, he
"Upon my word, you're a plucky
lad," exclaimed North Wind. "Well,
the best I can do for you now is to give
you the stick in yonder corner. It may
be of some use to you. If you say, "My
stick, do your duty,' it will go on strik
ing until you say, My stick, be still."
With many thanks Olaf started for
home. As he passed tho inn where he
had lost his treasures, he thought it
might not be a bad thing to stop there
once more. So he went in, threw him
self down ou a bench and was soon
The landlord quickly spied tho magic
stick, and taking it for granted it
might bo worth as much to him as the
cloth and ram ho had taken from tho
same guest he found another stick that
looked like it to leave in its place.
But as be laid hands oa North Wind's
gift Olaf, who was only pretending to
be asleep, Ftarted rp, crying :
" My stick, do your rtnty."
Then the slick fell to besting the
landlord, who tumbled headlong over
benches and tables, shrieking and
"For mercy 'a 6ke, bid this stick be
still, or it will beat me to death. iStop
it for pity's sake stop it, and I'll give
you back your tablecloth and your
As soon as Olaf thought mine host
had been well punished he said quietly :
"My slick, be still."
At once tho magic stick ceased from
its labors, and the landlord restored the
stolen goods to their rightful owner.
Olaf put the tablecloth and the stick
in his pocket, and fastening a cord to
tho ram's horns led it home in triumph.
North Wind bad I'jiW handsomely

son lived in penco and plenty all their

A Scnr Uuildlng Material.
A new kind of building material as
a proposed substitute for ordinary stone
or brick is now receiving special in
dorsement on account of its freedom,
under various and repeated tests, from
the usual liability to crack or fracture.
To insuro this property, with the other
essential adaptations, silicic acid is
nsod, powdered aad Cleansed fzom all
impurities. Five to ten per cent of this
is mixed in warm river or rainwater,
and this is applied to slaked or Well
burned lime, or added to hydraulic lime,
the resulting product being mixed with
sand and small portions of fluorspar.
This mixture is cast into molds, in
various shapes as may be desired, and
after removal tho castings are left to
dry from 13 to 24 hours, which brings
thorn to a condition as dry as atmos
pheric air. In this state they are brought
into a steam boiler and steam blown
through so as to drive out all air, after
which the boiler is hermetically scaled
np and steam let in under a pressure
of 10 atmospheres. In this high pres
sure steam bath tho stones remain for
4S to 72 hours, afterward being submit
ted to a bnth of boiling and saturated
chloride of calcium for 0 to 13 hours,
also under a pressure of about iS at
mospheres, in the same boiler, and the
condensed water may lie used for the
bath. The stones are allowed to dry
in the open nir, or, more quickly, by
circulating steam inside the boiler after
tho chloride of calcium has been with
drawn and prior to taking ont the stones.

The Coldest Cold.
The science of chemistry, like that
of geography, has its undiscovered north
pole. Four hundred and sixty-one de
grees below the freezing point of the
Fahrenheit thermometer ( 274 degree
C.) lies a mysterious, specially indi
cated degree of cold which science has
long been gazing toward and striving
to uttnin, wondering meanwhile what
may be the conditions of matter at this
unexplored point. Its existence has
long lieen indicated and its position es
tablished in two different ways viz,
tho regularly diminishing volume of
gescs and the steady falling off of the
resistance made by pure metals to tho
passage through them of electricity un
der increasing degrees of cold.
This point, to which both these proc
esses tend as an ultimate, is called the
xcro of absolute temperature. By more
than one eminent observer it is supposed
to be the temperature of interstellar
space, the normal temperature of the
universe. Whether or not this suppo
sition be correct tho efforts which havo
been made and are still in progress to
reach this degreeof cold have been many,
diverse and ingenious, the equipment of
the explorer being not boats, condensed
foods and the genet al cachir.cry of ice
exploration, but all the varied resources
of mechanics and of chemistry which
can be combined to compass the ex
tremest degree of cold. McCrare'a
