The Heroism of a Child.
In the Bodlean Library at Oxford is
die most touching record of heroes and
self saci ifice on the part of a child.
'1 he lower door of St. Leonard's

There is a Hoy I Can Trust.
We once visited a public school. At
recess a little fellow came up and
3poke to the teacher: as he turned to
go down the platform, the master said:
"That is a boy I can trust! He never
failed me." We followed him with our
eye and looked at him when he took
his seat after recess. lie had a fine,
open manly face. We thought a good
deal about the masters remark. What
a character had that boy earned, lie
had already got what would be worth
more to him than a fortune. It would
be a passport into the best store in the
city, and, what is better, into ths con
fidence and respect of the whole com
munity. We wonder if the boys know
how soon they are rated by other peo
ple. Eve'-y boy in the neighborhood is
known, and opinions are formed of
him; he has a character either favor
able or unfavorable. A boy of whom
the master can say, "I can trust him
he never failed me," will never want
employment. Our Dumb Animals.
What keeps the Bicycler Upright
Let us suppose a 'cyclist mounted on
his wheel and riding, say, toward the
north. lie finds himself beginning to
tilt toward his right. He is l.ow going
not only north with the machine, but
east also. He turns the wheel east
ward. The point of support must of
necessity travel In the plane of the
wheel; hence it at once begins to go
eastward, and, as it moves much faster
thanme rider tilts, it quickly gets
under him, and the machine is again
upright To one standing at a distance
in front or rear, the bottom of the
wheel will be seen to move to the
right and left, just as I moved the foot
of the skeleton frame a moment ago.
I conclude, then, that the stability of
the bicycle is due to turning the wheel
to the right or left, whatever way the
leaning is and thus keeping the point
of support under the rider, just as a
boy keeps upright on his fingers a
broomstick standing on its smallest
end-Charles li. Warring, in The Pop

Torture in 'l.'x5-i. j
Torture is probably net infrequent
in Mexico today. It is known to have
been used in some instances within
comparatively recent ears to extract
details of s'uspeeu-.l political crime.
The Mexican method is the bowstring
or cord dr:.wn around the victim s(
neck, and sV.ily tightened until the
sufferer is re:idy to tell the story. This
is done ia the dungeons with which;
Mexican prisons abound, and which j
are relics of the days of xpanisli occu-;
pation. Mexicans would no doubt in-
disnaiitiy denv that torture is a part of ;
their judicial procedure, ilut as rel.-
able Americans state mai mej o
seen the victims before and aiter the
inlliction, the denial amounts to very
little. Muring the days of the Tudors,
w hen the rack w as in constant opera
tion, its use was contrary to Knghsh
law.' So it is in the Spanish American
countries wl.era despots are a law unto
themselves. The Middle Ages are not
as much the past ages as they might
be in a good part both of Kurope and
America, letting alone the barbarous
regions of the world.

Purity of Sea Air.
Professor lloster, of Florence, lias re
cently examined the air of the island
of Elba, and come to the following im
portant and practical conclusions: 1.
The air of an island, even when of con
siderable side, contains fewer bacteria
than the mainland. 2. When the
wind is oil the ski the number of bac
teria is enormously decreased. 3 A
comparatively narrow arm of the sea
is sufticient to purify the air blowing
over it. 4. Atmospheric bacteria in
crease in proportion to the velocity of
lie wind. o. P.ain is the most impor
ant factor in purifying air of its con
tained germs.
An Old Settler.
An English naturalist who put n.

the next five in tracing the bedbug

that the insect existed and was full of

even found in the camps of the army
and no war lleet was deemed fitted out

Butter From Cocoanuts,
Cocoanut butter is a new food stuff,
which seems to have a useful future'
before it. According to a report by
the British vice-consul at Berlin, the
production of an edible fat from the
marrow of tlie cocoanut has been
carried on for the last two year3 by a
firm at Mannheim, the process having
been discovered three year3 before by
Dr. Schlinck. Factories having the
same object are about to be established
at Paris and at Amsterdam. Tim nuts
come from the Soute Sea islands and !
also from certain places on the African
and South American coasts. The but
ter, which is sold at less than half the
price of ordinary butter in London,
contains from CO to 70 per cent of fat
and 23 to 25 per cent of organic matter.
Its color is white; it is of an agreeable
taste' is suitable for cooking purposes
and is being purchased by the poor,
who prefer it to margerine. Being
free from acid, it digests with greater
ease than dairy butter, and is prefer
able in other ways to tlie bad butter
which too often finds its wiy to mar
ket. It is also a more attractive c. im
pound than the various preparations
called margerine, some of which havs
such very questionable origin.

Luck and tlio Knipi ror.
A eentleman who has traveled
Russia relates the following:
"I remember once when playing
ecarte at a ball given by the empress
to the late emperor, the hitter, who
was wandering about, came behind me
to watch the game. My adversary
and I were both at four, and it was
my deal.
"Xow," said tlie emperor, 'let us see
whether you can turn up a king.'
"I dealt and then held up the turn
up card, observing, 'Your orders sire,
have been obeyed."
'The emperor was greatly astonish
ed and a dozen times afterwards asked
me how I managed it and he never
would believe that it was a mere haz
ard, that I had taken the chance of the
card being a king."
Effects of Frost on lJuililin
Experiments on the frost resisting
power of natural and artificial build

one different kinds of natural building
stones, three to six test pieces of each
being used. The tensil strength, dry
and wet, their capacity for absorbing
water, their alternation in volume,
tensil strength and behaviour toward
water after freezing and thawing
twenty-live times and their specific
gravity were determined. Out of this
number of samples, ranging from
limestone to sandstone, only six were
found to resist repeated freezing, viz. :
One of dolomite, ono of diorite and
four sandstones. Four other samples
were found to resist freezing fairly, but
not absolutely; but of forty-one
samples of artificial stones similarly
tested, only three were found thorough

Duration of a Lightning Flash.
Until quite recently all ofjthe author
ities concurred with each other in the
opinion that a lightning Hash was in
stantaneous. Liite experiments show
that the (lash is not infinitesimal, but
that it lasts a measurable period of
time. This interesting fact was ascer
tained by setting a camera in rapid
vibration and exposing it iu a plate so
as to receive the impression of tlie
flash. Upon taking out the plates it
was found that the impressions seemed
widened out on the negative, showing
that the negative had been moved dur
ing the time the flash was in existence.

The extent or degree of the oscilla

taken by a close observation of the

An instance to the point is that of a

Marseilles, France, the oscillations of
which were observed by the shadow

ology. Seen on the wing, or even wuu
the wings expanded, both these great
existing birds have a most majestic
and colossal appearance. Hut feathers
in such cast s are very deceptive; they
make tine birds oU of very small
bodies. For example, our well known
little English swift, which looks so im
posing in Hight as it passes overhead
with pinions poised, is hardly as big
when plucked as a man's top thumb

So, too. the albatross, though its ex

any other known bird, amounting
sometimes to nearly ten feet from tip

than lil'te'.'ii pounds, which is just
