Interesting teet of the effect of Sun s rays on water placed in Bott Joo. Got two Plain white1 bottles one a Short Flat flask and tile other taller and heavier for instance an old Ginger Alo bottle. Fili the Small flask a with water and insert in its Nelt a Cork a Little Large for it a to that it almost refuses to go in. Hammer this Cork in tightly and to very sure that it is firmly and securely in place. Fill one third of the larger bottle with water and Cork. It. With a Cork that fits Well but not too tightly says a writer in Good literature. Drive a forked stick into the ground to that the Fork la about three inches from the Earth and prop up the. Tall bottle on this rest a amp that it Points upward at an Angle of about 40 degrees. A now drive two More forked Sticks into the ground just behind the Bottom of the bottle one on each Side of it. These Are. To hold your flask which must be Laid across them to that one Edge is higher than the other and its upper Side turned directly toward the. will notice that the Sun s Days shining on the slightly convex Side of the flask seem to. Focus or All gather together at one Point just beneath the flask. If you put your Finger ont this spot you will find that it is very very hot. If you put a a whip of paper there a you will see its edges curl up turn Brown and presently if. The Sun is hot take fire just As if. Some one had a touched a match to then and the whole paper will Burn to ashes. A. Now you must change the position of ithe larger bottle until this hot spot is on the Glass near the Bottom where the water is. Now you must be a it Lent and wait for something to Hap. Pen but if the Sun is hot you will not have to wait Long. In a few minutes you will see tho water in the larger bottle begin to arise from it. It will Bubble More and More and the vap Orwill grow thicker and thicker until it fills the bottle. -. Suddenly you hear a noise like a a i mall pistol shot the Cork files through the air like a Bullet followed by a Cloud of the vapor from the bottle your Cannon is discharged a tho buns rays shining upon the up. Per Side of the. Flask and phasing through in focused. Upon the water a in the larger bottle had the same effect upon it. That they had on the paper a they heated it. The White vapor was a team tho same Force which moves locomotives and All sorts of engines and As More and More steam gathered a and began to exert a pressure in All directions it piled up a lot of Force because a it was held in Check. Then As its Force grew greater end greater it began to push the Cork wit a for that was easier than to break the bottle and at Lnu Job tile Corot was sont flying and the steam escaped just As it does from the Mouth of Trio Tea Kettle of the Range at Homo.

In constantinople and other cd totes of the East wild dogs gaunt ravenous mangy and insolent Are permitted to prowl about the streets Iii formidable packs. A favorite haunt of the beasts a few years ago was the Little Field of the dead a cemetery in Pera Turkey. Here they gathered by the hundreds and basked in the Sun and howled and fought sometimes among themselves always with intruders. They seemed to regard the Gre some graveyard As their special estate. . Occasionally the easy going authorities would be moved by frequent recurrence of outrages on the part of the wild dogs to order soldiers to capture packs of Themi the brutes thus taken were driven aboard a ship and transported to a Barren Island in the sea of Marmora. For in the cast they do not believe in slaying dogs even if it becomes impossible for petiole to live in the same neighbourhood with them. Three Days provisions were provided for. The animals on the Island. And of always they were accompanied by a Mullah or a priest who before making the return journey preached to the canine congregation a Long Sermon on the duties of resignation ant religious fortitude. Proof that Jle . Louis xiv., King of France was very fond of playing a chess. One Day to Quot was having a game with one of his. Courtiers and during the game made a false move to a Yulch his adversary respectfully called his attention. The King who did not easily suffer contradiction did not wish to acknowledge that he and appealed to the ?wh6 surrounded tho table but none of them made any reply. Just then the Duke do or Amnion came into the room and immediately the King saw him he appealed to him and wished to explain to him the subject of the dispute but the Duko hardly allowed him to finish. 1 a your majesty is Portal Only wrong Quot he a said with a firmness of tone which astonished the King and caused him to frown. / a a How do you know that i am wrong Monsieur be due a replied the King a you have not even Given my. Time to explain to. You what tho ques ton Ltd a i know undoubtedly a replied the dulse of Grammont a for All these gentlemen whom your majesty was consulting at the moment a arrived Only replied by their silence. They would every one have hastened to take your part if your majesty had been the King was struck with the sense of this argument and admitted that he had made a mistake. -.�-.

The greatest dangers to the skin of the face with housekeeping lie in fire and dust tho face like the hands Tjho uld to washed twice u la veil a shod but with soap Only at night. If the morning sweeping has coated it with dust take this off first with cold Cream and a soft Rug. Prepare the Bath with warm or hot water.

Frequently changed and always sunned after using never for get for a moment that the skin of Tlly face is Moro delicate Tolian that of any Piirto of tho. Body. Arid that Swift changes of temperature such As going directly from a hot Are into a cold cellar Are. Very injurious to it this tends to thicken Anil Harden the Sulu to give it theicoar8 i a badly treated look which the faces of. So Many hard worked women present the Benzoin used for the hands l also for the face and in. Thi same proportion�?12 drops to a bowl of water. After the face has been carefully dried give it a Light rub with cold Cream. If several hours of roasting Over a a hot fire fall to your lot it is also Well to coat the face with Cream before a beginning this work. This is a Little. Unsightly but it will keep off a Good Deal of the Burn All rubbing of the face Whan bathing and drying it or when applying Cream must be upward As a contrary motion drags Down Liq Muscles and gives them a tendency to change. A. Determine on Success. Make up your mind to be a Success at something no matter what that something Taay be.
