The whole secret of the making of a string dog really lies in the twisting of the string before being doubled As explained above. It you try and twist of string when doubled without having previously twisted it up tightly you will find that it will come unwound again almost do restly. When the string has been Dou the working diagram. Bled and twisted round in the proper manner it appears As in Fig. 1. The next thing to be done is to pull the string out As indicated in Fig. 2. This is Best done by the Aid of a pin after having pulled the string apart As shown in Fig. 2, the two pieces. 6f string pulled out and marked 1 and 2 should themselves be twisted round tightly.

The pamper required should be about nine inches in length and half. An Inch in Width. Twist the paper fairly tightly As shown in Fig. 5, and then twist it very tightly a in Fig. G.

The Wood. No matter what your skill and perseverance you will not succeed. Now pass through the Eye of the Needle a simple bit of thread and you will to successful in the feat without the slightest difficulty. The Little Light Quot make weight Quot that you have added to your Impromptu javelin transforms it into a veritable Arrow and causes the Point Given the Impulsion to strike the object aimed at and Quot to this result from such Small Means will strike the spectators with astonishment having first shown the impossibility of aiming a naked Needle and will elicit their compliments in Celebration of your wondrous magical experiments.

Again they were met with denials from or. Shonts but the rumours have cropped out from time to time Ever since the denials being just As frequent Washington society fully expected to hear the definite announcement , the dues visit Here and its failure to materialize was the cause of much disappointment the cause of the delay in the Young couples plans it is thought Here was due to the opposition to the match on the part of or.

In some excavating in the cellar there was found an old half Dollar also a big Copper cent of 1844. Laid a8ide As prize. Sensational and mysterious Case stirs British capital. Duke of Portland. Sixth1in succession whose right to Hie title is attacked in the amazing a cd Rice mystery Quot Case in England is the possessor of in imposing list of names and Lille. He is William Lohn Arthur Charles James Cavendish Bentinck Viscount Woodstock Baron Cirencester Marquis of Tichfield car of Portland. He is Uibo lord lieutenant of Caithness lieutenant of the Coldstream guards honorary colonel fourth battalion Sherwood foresters master of the horse and family trustee of the British museum and Fonne msgr lieutenant colonel of the honorable artillery company of London. The Duke was born december 28,1867, and became Duke of Portland december 6, 1879, succeeding his eccentric Cousin who was childless As far As anyone then knew. The Duke was married june 11,1889, to the daughter of Thomas Yorke Vassal Yorke esq., of Wales Gate. Queen Victoria stood sponsor in person at the christening Only child. The Duke is very anxious to retain his title by it is being remarked in London that he is making no Effort to open the Igro a a of a Omri. A a Ali Iii is said to contain 200 pounds of Lead instead of a Lipman Skeleton. If the late Duke and a emr. Drucey were not one and the bume Man then the finding of Druces body would prove it. But if the Lead was found the present Duke would almost certainly lose his title. So far the Duke has not seemed willing to go As far As this but has depended upon the inability of George Druce known son of the Druce who was a successful merchant in has Baker Street Bazaar to prove that his father was the Duke of Portland. Thus far Druce has produced Many convincing arguments but to has. Not had the Bruce a a grave opened either. The present suit it is hoped will Settle the argument. The suit is brought by George Druce against his Uncle charging perjury in that he swore he saw the body of the merchant Druce in its coffin. To prove that the coffin was full of Lead would certainly convict the Uncle. For him or prove that the coffin did contain a body would Settle the Duke of Portland Row once and for All. For if dance actually was buried in 18g4 he. Cor Talney was not the Duke of of crts Nihil who died in 1879 at the time the present Duke secured the title. Until the matter its settled one Way or the other the entire nobility of England Wili be kept on the anxious seat and if th4-Clalm of the Druces be proved finally to be baseless it certainly will take rank As the most monumental imposture in history. For determining the velocity of Light. Nearly 50 years have elapsed since Uriah a. Boyden a Boston Engineer deposited $1,000 with the trustees of the Franklin Institute to be awarded As a prize for determining by Experiment whether All rays of Light and other physical rays Are transmitted with the same velocity. It was not until this summer that the prize was won. Or. Boyden doubted the accuracy of the experiments of Baron von Wredt in 1840, tending to show that Light and Radiant heat travel at different rates of Speed and he hoped to Bave the matter established by a More careful series of tests. Or. Paul r. Heyl of the Central High school of Philadelphia experimented on the rays of Algol a variable Star in the Constellation Perseus and established to his own. Satisfaction and to the satisfaction i it of a committee of expert physicists that the visible and the ultraviolet Raya of the spectrum travel with the same degree of Speed and Germany a population increasing. Germany a population is increasing More rapidly than that of great Britain or France. The prize has been awarded to him. His paper on the subject was printed in the journal of the Franklin Institute for August. The accumulation of the fund for nearly 50 years remains and Tho judges in the contest have recommended that the sum be set aside As a prize for similar successful Experiment regarding the Speed of the infrared rays. Find fragment of new testament prof. Friedrich Mueller the eminent German philologist has succeeded in deciphering some of the manuscript brought Home from chinese turkestan by or. Lecoq. The main interest a let in the fact that they Are fragments of books of the new testament and that their copiers had Access to versiont1 which Are totally unknown and the a differ considerably from All authoritative ancient versions recognized by the greek and Catholic churches. Or Lecoq found these fragments near Turfan buried in the Sand. Census of world s sunday schools. T4ie worlds sunday schools total at 262,000, with 26.000,000 attendant
