Tho only requisite for this experiment Is a

Another very slmplo experiment showing

Tho sizo is not vory material, but by making
several trials of different vessels n particular

in holding tho vaso obliquely in closo prox

Kloetrlcul llullet Probe.
At a recent meeting of th Now York
Academy of Mcdlclno Dr. Glrdncr, of New
York, exhibited his telephonic bullet probo.
Tho interesting featuro of this probo is that
it Is operated by n curront of eloctrlclty ex
tracted from tho body of tho patient him
Eclf, In whom it is desired to locate a metal
lio missile Tlio construction of this probo
is as follows: To each of tho two terminals
of a telcphono receiver, nn insulated flcxlblo
wiro about four foot long is connected. At
tho freo end of ono of theso wired a hollow,
bulbous plcco of stool is attached. At. tho
freo end of tho othor wiro is n sultablo
handle, in which a probo may bo placed, nnd
hold by a clamp scrow. Tho internal ar
rangement of tho handlo is such that a per
fect electrical contact exists between tho end
of tho probo and that of tho wiro which ter
minates in tlio handlo; tho samo is truo for
tho end of tho other wiro and tho steel bulb.
When n current of electricity is passed
through tho coil in tho receiver by means of
tho bulb nnd tho probo, each tlmo thnt tho
current is mado nnd brokon a clicking or
rasping sound is heard in tho receiver held
to tho car. All sounds nro shut out except
thnt heard when tho bullet is touched; nnd
tho apparatus is so constructed thnt both
hands nro left free. A detailed description
of this probo is glvou In Tho Now York Med
Colored Mortar for Ilrlokwork.
Tho Ileal Estnto Hovlow says thnt common
bricks of almost nny district may boso6ortcd
as to produce contrast in tint or "tono" red,
nnd yellow or "cream color." This tint of
tho bricks may bo prosorvod ami heightened
by using mortar of tho samo tono or tint.
Furnace ashes and II mo will produco a dark
mortar, ouuded rod brick or red tlio mixed
with limo will givo a red tono to mortar, nnd
cheap mineral colors mny bo added to mortar
for iofnting, Tho color of mortar Is sadly
neglected, ns generally tho samo w hlto limo
and sands nro used for all tones of color In
brick, nnd not infrequently whito putty
mortar is used for pointing tho reddest as
well as tho lightest colored bricks tho light
colored work having harmony of breadth
nnd keeping, tho red portion being frittered
and broken up by tho contrast botn con bricks
nnd beds and Joints.

Wo henrd n rnther lllustrntlvo storj lately
from ono of our neighboring factory towns.
An old fashioned Yiinkoo of Quaker stock,
who mutt small shoo factory, indulged in a
theory that nothing could pry out of his
mind thnt a moral wrong was somehow per
iwtrntcd ujwii thoeonununltyut largo if n
woman wero nl lowed toenrn nhovo u btijiu
lated sum each week. As his help was paid
by tho piece, nnd ho had to keep tally In tho
main with current prices, ho found tills
rather hniil to ninnago nt tlniiw, Tho swift
ness of ono young woman esjieclally troubled
him greatly. Hho would pendst In running
financially ahead of others. At last liomado
n special cut down in her prices, and told bur
why ho did It. Bho gave him n baleful
glance, tightened her lips, nnd went on work
ing. IJy Snturdny night noxt, dosplto tho
cut down, she mado ten cents nbovo the week
before Another week went by, w hen ho cut
her down still more. Tho dnmmlNtlH proved
gnmo nnd row) to tho occasion. After a week
or nioro tho Quaker conscience grow "scared"
nnd asked her what sho meant, "It means,"
said tho girl, "that you may keep on nnd I'll
keep on till you havo n corpso on your hntids
in this workroom, for I'm grit and you enn't

A Ntm-y with u Moral.
A gentletnau doing business down town
mado nu appointment with his wife, beforo
he left homo In tho morning, to meet her nt 0
o'clock in n fashionable up town restaurant,
where they wero to tuko dinner. Sho reached
the restaurant u few minutes loforo ho did.
As soon as she entered it n man In n swallow
tailed coat hastily advanced and told her in
a decisive tono that bIio must leavo, for womon
wero not allowed there alone nt that hour.
Sho wns nonplussed for a moment, but re
plied thnt her husluiud would arrive in a fow
minutes. Tho mini would tuko no explana
tion, but throw open tho door for hor to leavo.
Sho burst into tears as sho felt tho slinino of
her situation, nnd walked out to tho street,
w hich sho reached Just as hor husband ar
rived. In a moment thero was a pretty hot
sceno in the restaurant, into which her hus
band rushed, but that did not mend tho caso
for her. Tlio moral of this Incident Is that

Ono of tho present nuisances in Now Haven
