Be Measured by Means
Heights of mountains or ot airships
Can Le measured by means of an ordi
nary thermometer. The greater the
pressure of the atmosphere on the sur
face of water the greater temperature
It takes to boil It. As we rise In the
air less and less pressure of the air
occurs, and water will boll at a lower
temperature than 100 degrees C (212
decrees F.). It Jhas been figured out
that for a few miles up for every
thousand feet of ascent water will
boll a decree lower. Thus If at the
bottom of a mountain water bolls at
99 degrees C (210.2 degrees F.) and at
the top at OS degrees C (208,4 degrees
F.) the mountain Is a thousand feet
In government and other scientific
work extremely dellcatp tharmometera
are used. They are long, bo that the
scales may be divided Into fractions
of a degree. The entire Instrument for
the work is termed a thermobaro me
ter, or bypsometer. It consists of a
small metallic vessel for boiling wa
ter, on the Inside of which are placed
these delicate thermometers. Ganot
Buys that the accuracy of the height
of a mountain can be obtained within
ten feet by means of these lne-trn
meats. It Is probably aot quite that
accurate, as the pressure of air does
not decrease uniformly as we ascend.
Nevertheless It Is a good adjunct to
the surveyor taking largely variable
Of course the ordinary Instrument
for taking heights without' actually
measuring them Is the barometer.
This is open to the same objection as
the thermometer, for its height de
pends on the pressure of air, which
does not decrease uniformly. How
ever, it can be graduated to an em
pirical scale to tell the heights and In
that case shows accuracy. Chicago

Charles Mathews was food of tell

called "A White Lie." There was no
shadow of a call for the author. The
curtain divided the audience from the
