The first object that met our Rig it we Helen Van Horn covered with mid but happily More frightened than Hurt or. We also in a wrote bed plight but too. Much engrossed m might be expected Fram such a creators with own to give the least attention fallacies. Two Hundred Yean ago that quaint old writer. Sir Thomas Browne filled two urge with an account of what he conceived to to vulgar errors pseudo Doxia a Pidemia although modern science he done much to diffuse sound knowledge in regard to the Phenomena around us yet popular fallacies Lave not m yet quite disappeared. Kven our of popu Lar science and Many of oar scientific papers continue to propagate and perpetuate mists rns which May Well be with the vulgar errors of or. Browne. Thus nothing k More common than to hear of the tabular character of hair indeed almost aay oae that we meet will if asked Tell m that the Hain of oar Heads an vary Fine and yet every hair k a Good Cylinder a fact which he Dana published of times Bat which seems to have no effect upon the popu Lar belief. It k True that a hair when examined under the Microscope something like a tube hut then so a wild metallic Fine ample for pie. That which Rise to the tubular appearance k imply Umbright Lino which k always seen on every Cyl both people s Cru Dru. Inder for example of even Black Lead Pencil when we to he associate in misfortune whom he left to struggle to her feet unaided and to make her Way to the sidewalk where Hor recent visitors met Hor. End where she hysterically explained Bow a huge truck against which de Goth Lotus Carriage had Boon carelessly driven had left them stranded la Tho Taddy Street fortunately and Marvel lost it however without broken i Churchill called a Carriage and to escorted the wrecked Back to her residence at the door of which to congratulated her upon by Lucky Ca. And bid her Good night my new Friend then proposed that wit should drive at anew to to opera whore he hoped we might moot a party of his friends to whom to would a pleased to introduce to Aud in whose society we would find Raro Eaas for our disappointments in regard to miss Van Horn. I assented. Churchill s friends Wero met m to had promised and among them were two Beautiful Sisters. So attractive that they speedily drove All thoughts of a merely handsome Girt superficial and spoiled like Helen Van Horn out of to head of thu Bill m Well m my own. A charming evening at Tho opera ripened into a serious attachment on Tho part of Churchill and Mya Olf for these Sisters which ended in our marriage and no one Over had Juster reason for saying Taku the hair however and. Having Cut a slice off at the end examine the slice we find that it a not a ring As it would to if Cut from tour Ond of a tube but a solid disk. Another singular idea which he gaitaud Vury general ground k that the Moons of Jupiter can be seen in a look ing Glass and if some Bright night we try the Experiment we shall actually see Jupiter in Tho looking gum accompanied by a very faint Star which con stantly maintains Tho same distance from the planet. Further. .11 than i have i and now you know Why i did not marry Van Horn and also How two men for a moment about to to Mode enemies through the unscrupulous coquetry of inferior heartless woman by a Happy stroke of Fortune became friends and Brothers. For Hulun Van Horn she still in single blessedness and upon the la Oivory of her Many finding Hor Chlof gratification for Homo Yean past a recounting the various eligible offers she had refused including always Churchill and Mya Olf among her rejected suitors. A heavy which or. A talus had been Beni led about the time of Mim Van Horn s triple engagements for Tho same even ing resulted so disastrously for him that her doors Wero at once Rig july closed will show us that every Bright Star pre sents the same appearance. And. If we reflect a Little upon the Jafim Mumm. We see that the Moon k Only the faint image of the Star or planet re floated from the surface of the Glass while the Bright image reflected from the surface of the Mercury k what Call the Star itself a lamp or Candle held before a thick Mirror will present precisely the same appearance. Simple though the explanation be however there Are few errors that have taken a deeper hold on the of the pseudo than the. Amongst popular fallacies a prominent place must be Given to those which from the actual deception of the for neither our eyesight nor our of touch k to be absolutely de Pended on. Thus the Beautiful phenomenon known at the Sun drawing water k caused simply by the of the ran piercing a rift in the Aad rendered More intense by the prevailing gloom. Few people would believe that actual Meafeu Remusat of the Sun Aad Moon when near Tho horizon at rising or setting would fail to show that they Are then much larger than at other times t and yet allowing for the differ ence caused by refraction and which if too alight to to measured by any but the finest actual measure ment that not Only their real but their apparent Are Preci sly the same at All another fallacy which k very Preva Lent k that every drop of water contains of and that every Pebble indeed every fragment of Olid matter on the Bee of the Globe k peo pled with of these email Crea for Ink belief there is.
