At Hampton Court.
Two American women last summer
ent one day from London to Hamp
ton Court, and spent the moraing in
the gardens of the old palace there.
At noon tbey repaired to a neighboring
inn for their luncheon. The waiter
apologized for some trifling delay by
saying some shop girls from Whiteley'a,
on tkur Saturday 'a outing, had un
expectedly just ordered luncheon.
The Americans, annoyed at the
coming of what they supposed would
be a noisy party, wished- they1 had
gone to some other bouse; but it
was too late now, their luncheon bad
They were in a front reora- which
overlooked the gardens of the palace.
It waa,a sunny June morning, so still
that they could hear the wind rustling
through the branches cf the great
oaks in the avenues, and the bees
buzzing m the roses which climbed up
outside of the window. One or two
old gentlemen were busied with their
meal and newspaper in the room, but
no one spoke. The quiet was almost
"This is very restful and pleasant,"
said one of the Americans, "but we
must hurry away. Think of thirty
giggling shrieking gitls out on a holi
day 1 When do the yonng 1 women
come?" she added, turning to the
"They are here, madam," he said.
"They are in that roon," pointing to
an open door covered with ft lace
portiere. ' '
The strangers looked at each other
with an expression almost, of incred
ulity. They listened, and a moment
later heard the hum of gentle voices,
of which not a word could be distin
guished. The mystery was easily explained.
The shop-girls were in the habit of
dealing with English gentlewomen of
the bel ter class, and imitating them,
had caught their low, controlled habit
of speech. , -
"If our women would but learn it!"
exclaimed one of the strangers. "Im
agine thirty American girls out on a
holiday! The clatter of voices! The
shrill bursts of laughter; the shrioks
and screams!" -
This little incident is a literal fact
which is worthy of the consideration
of girl readers. Our climate gives to
all of our "voices ''certain high nasal
tones. The training of the voice in
speaking is unfortunately neglected in
America, except among the most care
fully educated people. Hence the
American in. Europe is known as soon
as lie opens his mouth by his shrill,
Two American women in a salon or
gallery will make more noise than a
large group of jtheir French or English
sisters. Vet these last are probably
not a whit more gentle or modest at
heart than they are. But the posses
sion of inward and spiritual graces
does not atone for the lack of the out
ward and visible signs of good breed
ing. It is true that a woman may have
Cordelia's soft, low voice with the
coarseness of Regan and malice of

life? Youth's Companion.
"Jacko" is a tame rook, whose
owner, a lady, writes to the London
Spectator that she hod kept him for
five years, when one afternoon she
noticed him march by her two or
three times with a stick in his mouth.
He was hard at work on the founda
tions of a nest. For jx fortnight he
worked almost without cessation all
I really felt sorry for him, and
sometimes tried to help him by
holding up sticks one at a time, whieb
he took from my hand as he wanted
them. -When at last the nest vas
finished he often had his afternoon
nap in It.
There is a small rookery here, and
hwyear.'iji?t3lof building on fais.
OWn atcotiiit, Jacko tried to he1"p the
wild rooks. He followed tbcm about
with a twig in his beak, and kept with
them all day, often runningafterthetn
on the lawn with some of his dinner
in his beak, wanting to feed them as
he feeds the tame jackdaw, between
whom and himself there is a strong
affection. But they snubbed him
One day poor social Jacko must
have thought he had at last found a
responsive companion, for I found
him bowing and cawing to the rook in
the looking-glass! And more than
once since then he has been seen going
up-stairs with some delicacy in his
beak evidently intended for his shad
Ortce while I was calling on a friend,
a lady whom I did not know came in.
She owns a rookery, and my friend
told her of mino, adding that I was
fond of rooks.
"Ah," said she, "so am I. I often
say that through the season we
almost live on rook pie."
When I suggested that I should not
like seeing my rooks in a pie, her real
ly delightful answer was, "No some
people prefer them stewed.
Little Children of the Race.
The following interesting view of
"Childhood" is from an article by
Miss Roseboro', on that subject, in
the Christmas Century: "The little
children of the race are intellectually
more respectable than the majority of
its adults. To be sure, it is their at
titude and not their achievements
that makes them so; but in estimating
the human being as a mind rather
than as 'a screw in thesocial machine,'
who can help thinking the attitude
more important than the achieve
ment? The abounding intellectual
curiosity of children, and their con
tinual return to the biggest and deep
est questions, the origin of things,
the sources and ends of beiugs-theee are
what make them superior. What if the
question can never be absolutely an
swered? Is it not infinitely more re
spectable to have them earnestly in
mind than, accepting some munibo
jumbo reply, to dismiss them altogeth
er and to devote existence wholiy to
the frivolties we call business, or pleas
ure, or learning? What else was Car-
lyle's fundamental ratson d'etre but his
poser to all us to a degree ofths
rious reasonable wonder with which
we start in life?
"Upon my word, I sometimes think
that if the world were started now on
a -new plan, and peopled altogether
with he. middle-aged,, religious, after
going on a short time through the' im
petus of cost own would die oat all
over the world from this simple lack
of interest in the question, they pri
marily undertake to answer.- As it is,
the children force us to keep some
sort of theory of existence furbished
A Cat's Whiskers.
Nature is an economical dame, and
never indulges in useless gifts. If she
gives an animal or plant au appendage
ol any kind, we may oe sure tnat it
serves some wise purpose.
- Take a cat's whiskers, for instance,
which may seem to you to be merely
ornamental. They are organs of
touch, attached to a bed of fine glands
under the skin, and each of these long
hairs is connected with the nerves of
the lip. The slightest cont act of these
whiskers with any surrounding object
is thus felt most distinctly by the ani
mal, although the hairs themselves
They stand out on one side of the
lion as well as the common cat. From
point to "point they are equal to the
width of thtt animal's body.
If we imagine, therefore, a lion steal
ing through a covert of wood in an
imperfect licht. we shall at once see
the use of these long hairs. They indi
cate to him, through the nicest feel
ing, any obstacle which may present
itself to the passaee of his body; they
prevent the rustling of boughs and
leaves, which would give warning to
his prey if he were to attempt to pass
too close to a bush; and thus, in con
juncliQn.with the soft cushions of his
feet and the fur upon which he treads
the claws never coming in contact
with the ground they enable him to
move toward his victim with a still
ness equal to that of the snake.
A Trade for Boys.
If I had my way I would insist that
every boy should learn a trade, writes
Foster Coates in the Ladies' Home
Journal. It was so in the olden times,
and it should be so now. The man
who has a trade is a thousand times
better equipped than the man who
has none. Let every boy select the
trade that best suits his ability, and
premises the highest remuneration.
When he has mastered his trade, if he
dislikes it or it is not profitable, he
can begin to study a profession, or
enter upon a commercial life." If he
should fail in both of these, he is
stiH master of a good trade some
thing that no one can' take from him,
no matter what exigencies may arise.
The man who is master of a good
trade is as independent as a million
aire. He need never want; he can find
profitable work in any corner of tlie
world. Ido not say one word against
a professional career. But I do say
emphatically that the man who has a
trade and a profession as well, need
have no fear of the future. The boy
who wants to can master a trade be
tween sixteen and twenty, and if he
dislikes it, he still has time to study
medicine, the law, or any other of the
learned professions. But if he waits
until he is twenty, or over, he may
not have an opportunity or feel in
clined to learn -either.
The reason why the smell of burnt
powder and smoke from fire-cracker
stumps is so grateful to boys is not
far to seek. It is the Budden force
shown in the explosion and the little
spice of danger as well as the noise
that pleases the youth. The origin of
firecrackers, according to Mr. W.
Woodville Rockhill, the Thibetan ex
plorer, is as follows:
Firecrackers were originally joints
of bamboo. They are made of paper
at present, but the Chinese name
"bamboo cun,".shows what they were.
The bamboo crackers made a very
loud noise like our "cannon crackers."
Perhaps the fragments of bamboo
flew about when they exploded, mak
ing them dangerous, so t hat paper was
substituted. In making bamboo
crackers the partitions in the joints of
the bamboo Were pierced, powder sift-J
ed in and a fuse introduced.' It fs in"
teresting to see the way the present
fire crackers, with their partitions of
cloy, follow the old bamboo pattern,
The chaplain of a man-of-war was
fond of catechising the j oung sailors,
much to their disgust.
"What is your name?" he asked a
new arrival one day.
"Why, Jack Bowling, sir, to be
"Who gave you that name?" pro
ceeded the chaplain.
"My godfathers and godmothers,"
replied the man, going on to answer
the question correctly.
"What have your godfathers and
godmothers further done for you?"
"Well, sir," replied Jack, getting
tired of the lesson, "they promised to
do a great deal, and it's precious lit
tie they've done yet."

English by Sound.
It was in one of our schools the oth
er day where I picked up the following
thrilling composition written by a
twelve-year-old girl, which is one of
the best pieces of English as she is
"spelt" that I have yet seen: "A right
suite little buoy, the son of a kernal,
with a rough round his neck, flue up
the road as quick as a dear. After a
thyme he stopped at the house and
wrung the Dell, Jiis tow hurt hymn
and he kneaded wrest. He was two

Travels of a Star.
A communication from M. Camille
Flammarion, the French astronomer,
in the New York Herald of the 8rd
inst. mentions his discovery at Juviey
Observatory of the movement of a
star by the naked eye. This is the
first time in the history of astronomy,
he says, that the displacement of a
star has been settled without instru
mental aid. i-.
The star to which he refers shines
beneath the brilliant star "Cluster" in
the constellation of the Virgo. It is
numbered CI and is of the fifth magni
tude. Hipparchus described it 2,000
years ago as a double star. It was
then optically double, only not
physically connected with another
star. But it is no longer double even
in appearanoe. It was in the attempt
to ascertain the stellar parallax by
the study of double stars that the
elder Herschel found evidences of the
great law that the dominion of gravi
tation extends beyond the limits of
the solar system to the most remote
regions of sbiice.
Star atlases constructed by M.
Flammarion and others show that

The Metrlo System.
Several British Consuls have recent
ly warned their countrymen they were
losing considerable trade in foreign
countries owing to their persistent
use of English weights and measures
in their circulars and price-lists, which
were frequently unintelligible to most
of the foreign dealers, whereas their
French, German and other competi
tors used the metric system, which
was familiar to everybody, and natur
ally attracted custom. These warn
ings apply equally well to the export
ers of the United States. The use of
the metric or decimal system was
! authorized by our laws many years
ago, but the use has not yet been
made compulsory; henco the majority
of people cling to the old system and
dislike to change, although the metric is
more simple and easily understood.
The metric system is so mu ch more
convenient, saves so much time and
has now become so generally adopted
throughout the world that the United
States ought no longer refuse to fall
into line. A very little pressure would
suffice to bring about the change. It
would do the business, probably, if
Congress were simply to pass a law re
quiring that estimate, contracts and
bills specifying weights or measures,
when not made out metrically, must
bear ft revenue stamp of one dime.

body would at once use the decimal

Automatlo Delivery of Letters.
An inveotios which is exciting
good deal of interest on theContinent,
where the flat system of residence is
so modi ia Yogae, is aa aatotnatic
electric letter and patcel deliverer,
produced by ft resident of Geneva.
As its name implies, the apparatus ia
designed to distribute automatically
on each floor, and to all the tenants
of house, the letters or parcels which
may be addressed to them. A large
box situated on the ground floor con
tains aa many - apertures as (here are
floors or tenants in the house. When
a letter or other object is introduced
into one ol these openings the box
rises and, in - passing, distributes ia.
each of the addresses the articles in
tended for them, each tenant being in
turn advised of the arrival of the
article by the ringing of an electric bell.
The working of the apparatus is ex
tremely simple, as the following few
details will show, and its cost is in
significant. .The object introduced is
to the box on the ground floor effects,
at the top of the house, an electric
contact, which opens the valve of a
water tank. The water fills a cylinder,
which serves as a counterpoise, and
raises the letterbox, which, while in
the act of passing each private box,
opens itself by au ingenious yet simple
mechanical arrangement, and depos
its the respective contents therein.
When .the box carrier has arrived at
the top floor the cylinder empties it
self, and the box descends to its place
and is ready for another trip.
Photos Bent, by Wire.
The transmission of pictures by
electricity is one of the latest applica
tions of the subtle but extremely use
ful fluid, and the principle of this new
discovery is somewhat similar to that
on which the telephone is based, use
being made of varying degrees of light,
instead of sound, as in the tele
phone. In order to send ft picture
over a wire it is first photographed
on what photographers call a
stripping film, composed of gelatine
and bichromate of potash. After the
picture H transferred to this film the
film is washed with lukewarm water,
by which all but the lines of the pict
ure art removed, leaving the photo
graph in relief.
The point of a tracing apparatus,
when drawn across this film from side
to' side, rises" and' falls as it strikes
each line of the picture. This wave
like motion of the tracer is made use
of to produce similar motion in
another tracing apparatus at . the
other end of the line by means of a
complicated electrical mechanism,
and each depression and elevation in
the picture is reproduced in a waxen
cylinder on the receiving instrument.
To accomplish this it is necessary to
go entirely over the picture that is
being transmitted, tracing linesacross
the surface. A single line conveys no
idea of the picture, but as they tollow
each other they gradually outline the
object. From Electricity.
Strange Thina-s In the Air.
When a flash of lightning darts
through the air, it vaporises any min
ute particles of floating matter that
may be in its path. By examining
the light otthe hghtuing with a spect

substances may be determined, be
cause every known element in nature
shows in its spectrum certain fines
that belong to it alone.
By studying the spectrum of light
ning in this way, Mr. W. E. Wood, of
Washington, has recently been able
to show that sodium, which is the
element from which common salt is
formed, exists in f he air.
He suggests various ways of ac
counting for the presence of sodium
in the "atmosphere, one of which is
particularly interesting, and that is

Rain Makings Failure.
The latest contribution to the rain
making controversy conies from Pro
fessor Curtis, meteorologist in charge
of the experiments. In a communica
tion from that gentleman, just pub
lished, he affirms in the most unequiv
ocal manner that so far as the pro
duction of showers by means of explo
sions, either on the ground or in the
upper air, is concerned, the experi
ments have been an utter failure.
Showers were in some instances ob
tained, though by no means to the ex
tent described in the telegraphic re
ports, the "torrents" of the imagina
tive reporters being in many instances
mere drizzles. But even these were
foretold by the Meteorological Depart
ment, and were due to natural causes,
and not in any appreciable degree to
the dynamite, and explosive balloons.
