DlKTimu. It was aJ the little junction town ot Weat Liberty, Iowa, at the indecent Lour of >> a.m. that a traveller who had just arrived entered at alleged restaurant near the railway c1t,)j. and said, 4 Bring me some bacon and eggs.' "Got ye," said the young aa-t behind the inanger. In fifteen or twenty minuter the same young man returned with a place containing something. The_ traveller examined it critically, making no motions towards attacking the viands there dis played. Finally he pushed the plate carefully and gently away from him and said: Now, son, don't think for a minute I've iow my temper, for I hare not done so. Don't thiol, I'm trying to roast yw, either, for nothing »t further from my thoughts. I simply want to give you some fatherly and muoh-needed advice^ This stuff you have Drought me is not edible Edible, you know, means that may be caton !hie baoon, for instance, is not cooked at all. It is out, to begin with, half-an-inch thick. stead of a sixteenth of an inch thin, as it should be cut. Then it has simply undergone a Turkish bath until ii6 pores ar* nicely opened. It is no* oooked at all. That, my son, renders it inedible, which means 'that may not be eaten.' If it haa been rendered more it would have been nearer edibility. Do not feel for a moment that I am die appointed. I am not. I was not hungry. ] never would have come in here if I had been hungry. I have been in here before. When 1 am hungry and should not eat I sometinies com# 1ft here to have my appetite removed, which ;4 always promptly accomplished br one glance what you bring me when 1 order something tha» in elsewhere served in edible form. So I am no disappointed or in any way hurt in my fooling*. I remembered that I had at various tirnet trdered almost everything else on your bill of fare except bacon and eggs in my previous, iq. voluntary visits to your junction. I was eurioui to know what you would serve under that, head in this ironical place. My curiosity has been fully satisfied, and I have had the worth of my money. Here is your quarter. I charpe you aothing for my lecture on dietetics. 1,(01\ that word up. Good-morning, my son, for j. I think 1 bur the train from Minneapolis whistling in." --Judge

"You are a worthy fishmonger," I responded- and I'm sure you always mong the bert of Iah.Carolyn Wells in Lite.

TkU CAUSE OF SLEEP. Nbf William Gowers, the famous medical aalafr HA, has developed a new theory of riaapb According to his explanation the euspenstea Ol sonsciouisnew in sleep is probably due to < "bteak aad make" action among the faaafcl oelk. The activity of the brain is oonsidete# ft be due to nerve cells, from which spring sawa tocdl that go on dividing and sub-di 1 Mtie*. antil they terminate in little knolia. For- H was believed that the nerve cells of 'he bsHM were in permanent connection by means of dmt tsrminald; but now it appears that tkom Ottty in opposition, and capable of beiag empo feted. The hypothesis is that during sleep ttMtt teparation takee place, and the fact that maw ootic substanees are capabH of indiMtng rfaap ti beld t4- support this view
"ELECTRIC STEEL" IN GERMANY.

The oven has a capacity of %om one and one-half to two tons, and is heated by a current of 100 volts. The new steel is aaai to be stronger and 111c r? resistant to wear and tsar than the old-fashioned crucible steeL
MRASURING THE INFINITE Of all the sciences, astronomy, probably, is the Most impressive and awe-inspiring The speee within the oonfines of the solar syste^n 0/ whisb earth is part, and the putermost known membee of which is nearly 3,000,000,000 miles from the oentre, is but a drop in the ocean of epaee. We think of and measure distances on earth in teraM of an inch or a yard or a mile. The emtHoot yard-stict, eo to speak, with which the mkwo- DOmer measures distance in the univeree is tka u semi-diarnetor of the earth's orbit. roughly speaking, 93,000,000 miles. Such figure* are of very little use to the ordinary person, but the, may serve, says the Pvtorial Magazine, to give some notion of the grmdeur of that human intel- lect which can unravel and systematise the jai* teries of the stars
THE ORIGIN OF GUNPOWDML The Chinese have long been credited with thr tevention of gunpowder, but Professor E. O. etfei Lippmann, of Halle, hae collected evidea* to indicate that this is a mistake, and that tlII Arabians did not, as commonly stated, introdiMT gunpowder into Europe during the eighth ul ninth centuries. Profeaeor von Lippnaan be- Uevee thù- the manufacture of the first |H> powder was baaed upon the "Fire-book" m W^cua Gresells, which appeared in Coaetentfc nop/ about the middle of the thirteenth ess- twry. This was the source from whioh Roget Bacon, Albertus Magnus, and Thomas Aquiaaa derived their knowledge of gunpowder. The ftret see of gunpowder to drive projectiles is aaoribed to a monk, BerColo Schwars, whose disoovetf was made accidentally while preparing the aii tare for medicinal purposes.
FACTS ABOUT BUILDING STOME. Almost everybody knows the rule of tfc* masons that stone used in "ouilding should be et placed that it will lie as it lay in its natural bed when quarried. But Mr. Francis W. Hoyt, ia the Engineering Newt, says that this familial rule is not always to be depended upon, and needs in many cases to be supplemented witfc other precautions. There are three plans* 01 fracture known to quarrymen. The rift" is the direction in which the stoae splits rnosi easily; the "grain" that which ie next easiest; the "head" that which offers the greatest re sktance. In a paving-block the two sides repre- sent the rift fracture the top and bottom the grain, and the ends the henn.
