A general focusing ol all tho fea tures toward t he center. Scientists took hold of the matter and advanced theories about it. One learned man said that the bicycle fuco was the result of a constant strain to preserve equilibrium. Up popped an other scientist, who stated that the pre serving of equilibrium was purely an Instinct, Involving no strain, and that If the first man knew a bicycle from u bucksaw he'd realize it. Thereupon tho first scientist said that the second hod a bicycle bruin, and hundreds took sides In the discussion. A prominent bicycle academy instructor here Is posi tlvo that ho 1ms solved tho secret.

It Is caused by a painful uncertainty wheth er to look for the arrival of the floor In front, behind, or ono side, and, once fixed upon the countenance, can never be re moved, The strained lines about the mouth are due to anxiety lest the tire should explode, Variations in these lines are traceable to tho general use of chewing gm. The general focus of the features is indicative of extreme attention direct ed to a spot a limit two yards ahead of tho front wheel. This attention arisen from a suspicion (hut there is pvobubly a stone, bit of glass, upturned tiu-li. barrel hoop, or other dangerous iir'Hc lying In wait there.

A week later, nt two o'clock in the morn ing, the gate-man was aroused from u sound slumber by a ring at the door bell. Looking out of tho window, he saw a man in a great state of excite ment. "Come down, quick!" he cried. "Railroad business!" Tho official hur ried on his clothes and came down to the door, "I want yon to look at this ticket," said the visitor. "I'm going on the three a. m. train, and you suld you wanted to see tho ticket every timo." The gate-man uttered an ex clamation of raee. and slammed the door, without even glancing at the ticket; and, furthermore, he never afterward asked to see it at tho gato. An I'.jtyptUn Wonder. One of the greatest wonders of an-; eient Egypt was the artificial body of water called Lake Moerls. According to Herodotus "tho measure of Its circumference was thirty-three hun dred furlongs, which Is equal to the en tiro length of Egypt along the seu joust." Tho excavation, which was nude In the time of King Moerls (tho Memnon of the Greeks and Romans), was of varying depths, and its center was occupied by two pyramids, the apexes of which were three hundred feet higher than tho surface of tho water. Tho water for this glf'untlo artificial reservoir was obtained from the N'ilo through a canal, which six months of the year hud an inliow and tho other six an outflow, corresponding to high and low water in the river. The canal gradually filled with sand and the lake has long since evaporated. ! but tho bottom is still one of the most ! fertile tracts in Egypt. !
