Here is a favorite trick explained. It
Is merely a simple chemical action, but
If. tbe trick la carefully performed a
good deal can be made out of it
Take two large glasses and flit one
with the solution representing Ink and
the other with the solution represent
Then cover these two glasses with
colored handkerchiefs, and. taking a
pistol and firing It command the Ink
and water to change places. On lift
ing the handkerchiefs It Is found that
this has been done, and the glass con
taining water now holds Ink, and vice
This chemical change can bo brought
about In several different ways, but
ohe, the best, is as follows:
Pill both the glasses with ordinary
water, adding to one a small quantity
of granulated sulphate of Iron, together
with a very small quantity of tannin.
ber that last spring-A;sident\Biib<e-
velt brought home from his western
trip a little badger which was given
him by a little Kansas girl.
The badger was named jostah and
became a favorite pet of tbe Roosevelt
children. He spent the summer with
them at Oyster Bay and'might have
remained an indefinite time if he had
kept up being as playful aad harmless
as he started out to be.
But, alas, he developed an ngly tem
per and showed his teeth, and It was
decided that he could not be retained
in the president’s household.
So he was given to a New York 100,
and there he Is today.

makes a stirring team. The firm name
will be The Atkinson Mercantile Co.
This forms the ink
In tbe other glass dissolve a small
quantity of the graulated sulphate of

Is to drop a pinch of tannin in the liq

The Game of Langh.
The game of laugh is new and very
funny if a large number plays. The
one who is “It” points his finger to
some one and says, “Laugh I” The one
Indicated must say, “Hal” If he smiles,
be must pay a forfeit, or If any one
else shows signs of merriment he must
do the same. The next one pointed at
must say, “Ha, ha!” the next, “Ha, ha,
ha!” and so on as far as it Is possi
ble. If the right nnmber of “Ha’sC is
not said, a forfeit must be paid. It is
very bard to keep from laughing, and
the game usually ends with a hearty
laugh from all.
Tbe Partrldffe and tbe Monkey-
The partridge, passing down the
street, came across the tailor monkey,
who was engaged on some work for
one of his customers.
“How are you getting along?” asked

“Sew-so ?” inquired the partridge.
“Yes, sew-so and so-so, too,” answer
ed the good natured monkey as he took
another stitch In tbe cloth.
“Do you find the work hard?” in
quired the partridge.
“Yes, but I have little ideas that help
replied the monkey.

Because we say that on that day
The house belongs to me N
I ask—it’s such a lovely play I—
My pa and ma to tea.
'“Now. ma'am,” I say, “don’t let mn
Your cup of tea too sweet;
And, doctor, take a piece of cake;
It's from a new receipt.” >
Then pa replies: "My dear Miss Brown.
Your cake is always nice.
You make the very best In town;
I'll have another slice!”
Then mamma asks what luck I had
With my last raspberry Jam.
And papa says he should be glad
To try my cold boiled ham.

“For instance, I hold the thread on my
toe to keep It from getting tangled.”
“TOto?” asked the partridge,
“Yes, toto and toe to too.”
“You have a noose in the thread
“No, that is a knot, not noose.”
“Yes, not not and knot not also.”
“Did you know I was a punsteM”
“Did I know? No.”
“No; no no-no. Know? No.” \
And then tbe two started laughing,
and they laughed so heartily over their
word twister* that it broke up the
whole day's work of tbe tailor monkey.
