As n young man, his Iitlu nml nnglish

wai doxrlbed ns follows in n recent number
of Popular Sclenco Nows:
Tnko a water llask or n wfdo mouthed do
canter or bottle, hold It lu n horizontal posi
tion ami placo a small cork lu the neck. It
w 111 then seem nn cosy matter to blow tho
cork into tho bottle, but upon trial It will bo

harder ono blown tho more forcibly It Is

Tho explanation of this peculiar behavior
of tho cork Is very fclmple. Tho bottlo Is
already full of nlr. so that no more can lxt
blown into it, nnd tho only effect produced
by blowing Is to compress tho air already In
side. When tho pressure is removed tho nir,
being clastic, expands again qcickly, and, In
doing so, forces tho cork out of the neck, ap
parently lu a revcrso direction to tho current
from tho lungs of tho experimenter. Tho
neck of tho bottlo must bo erfeetly dry, or
tho cork will ndhcro to It and Interfere with
tho success of the experiment.
