Soni.ds Focused by Ships' Sails.
The w despread sails of a ship, when
rendered concave by a gentle breeze, are
most excellent conductors of sound. The
celebrate' 1 Dr. Arnott relates the following
circumst.inces as a practical proof of this
assertion "A ship was once sailing along
the coast of Brazil, far out of sight of land.
Suddenly several of the crew, while walk
ing along the deck, noticed that when pass
ing and repassing a particular spot they
always h.ard with great distinctness the
sound of bells chiming sweet music, as
though b -ing ruii but a short distance
away, numfoiinded by this phenomenon,
they quickly communicated the discovery
to their mates, but none of them werejtble
to solve tje enigma ns to the origin of these
seemingly mysterious sounds.
Several mouths afterward, upon return
ing to Brazil, some of the listeners deter
mined to satisfy their curiosity. Accord
ingly they mentioned the circumstance to
their fniuds, ami were informed that at
the time -vhen the sounds were heard the
Ik-IIs iu ti e cathedral of San Salvador, on
the coast, had been ringing to celebrate a
feast held iu honor of one of the saints.
Their soumi, wonderful to relate, favored
by a gent e, steady breeze, had traveled a
distance f upward of 100 miles over the
smooth w::ier, and had been brought to a

in which he sweet sounds were first heard.
This is 'lit one of several instances of a
similar j.ind, trustworthy authorities
claiming : I, at it. has often happened nuder

Whet, m Man Can See SOO liles.
About S miles in every direction is the
distance a man can see when standing, on
clear d;y, on the peak of the highest
mountain, say at a height of 2t".,fifi8 feet, or
a little over five miles almve the level of
the sea. An observer must lie at a height
of 6,rit7 f et above sea level to see objects
at a distance of 100 miles. The distance in
miles at which an object upon the surface
of the ear:h is visible is equal to the square
root of on.j and a half limes the height of
the oliserver in feet above the sea level.
Some a lowanee has to ! made for the
effect, of atmospheric refraction, but as
the refraci ion varies ut different heights,
and is affected by the various states of the
weather, to precisely accurate figures for
general pt rposes can be given. Probably
one-fourteenth to one-tenth of the distauce
given by t he formula would have to be de
ducted, owing to the refraction of the at
