This was our nearest approach to sociability. Truly, we Jived to- the letter of our bargain. for a time all went well, until, womanlike, I became discontented with my own bargain.

Thus the invisible perfume floating off in the air is indirectly weighed. The essential part of the-apparatus is a very thin thread of glass, fired at pae end and extended hori- zontally. The microscopic objects to be weighed are placed upon the glass .thread near its free end. and the amount of flexure produced is observed with a microscope magnifying one hundred diameters. A mote weighing one-thousandth of a milligramme is said perceptibly to bend the thread. THE PRESSURE OF LIGHT. -T-HE fdea that the waves of light produce a me- offer only a theoretical proof.
