Hunger is distinctly a sensation. It
frequently Is felt when the system Is
really over-supplied with food and
conversely it may be appeased by a
very small amount of rood even
I though tho system Is emaciated.
If food 11 altogether withheld for
an Indefinite period the ciensatlon of
hunger disappears after the third day,

though tho patient dies by starvation.
This is a relief to many persons, to
feel that starvation, though dreadful

Dr. Cannon's X ray experiments j
showed that under normal conditions
when tlso stomach has been empty
for a few houra it has a tendency to
spasmodic coutructiona lasting fcr a!
minute or more with intervening pe- j
riods of relaxation. And these peri-'
ods of muscular action were shown
to correspond exactly with the feel-
ing of the sensation,of hunger. Tho
results of the experiment show plain-
ly that mere emptiness of tho stom-

Suspension Bridge la Shifted.
An important feat or unusual diffi-
culty has just been performed by the
department of bridges in shifting tho
cables of tho Williamsburg bridge
from supporting steel pins of ten
inches in diameter, twenty-eight inches
in length and one thousand pounds in
weight to nickel steel bar of thirteen
inclu*3 in diameter, forty and one-half
Inches in length and eighteen hun-
dred pounds in weight—all with lens
than two hours' interruption to rpil
and vehicle traffic. This terminates a
work of almost three years, by which
the longest suspension bridge in tiie
world has been reining, with addition-
al trusses, uprights and cross- beams,
exactly doubling its supporting
strength. The changes became nec-
essary through the new subway
scheme of which the Williamsburg
bridge is to be the central link! The
span carries six tracks, two for sub
way or elevated and four for stre-ot
cars.—New York Letter to the Pitts-

Special Values in
Vesuvius Still Hotter.
The temperature inside Mt. Ve-
suvius, which is unascertainablo by
ordinary thermometrical methods, has
recently been measured in novel fash-
ion by the Munich geologist, Storz,
who descended the crater of the vol-
cano for the purpose.
Ho dropped a thin wire cable with
an iron weight at the end into the
crater. Affixed to the wire were metal
cylinders made of lead, zinc and anti-
mony, which melt respectively at tern-
peratures of 626, 788 and 1,160 de-
Having been let down igta the
mouth of the volcano, the lead iheltod
at a depth of 33 feet, the zinc at 49
feet and the antimony at 175 feet 6
A yellow smoke vent inside the
crater had a temperature of only 294
degrees in 1911, 627 degrees in 1912,
and 782 degrees in 1913. From this
fact it is concluded that a fresh out-
break of Vesuvius may be imminent.

Our Stock of

Had No Sympathy for Him.
One night an Irishman passing the
box of an e'evated station in New
York failed to convince the negro
ticket chopper that he had deposited
his ticket. There was an active dis-
cussion which resulted in the ticket,
chopper throwing the Irishman down
the elevated stairs. He therefore
brought suit, and his lawyer, by the
exercise of considerable ingenuity, se-
cured a Jury entirely composed of
Irishmen. It looked like a certainty,
but the lawyer did not know the Irish.
They found against the plaintiff, on
the ground that an Irishman who was
licked by a negro deserved all he got.

"Now!" said Lyon, pausing and
casting a triumphant glance upon the
group of cynical listeners, "how did
the detective know that this strange
young man had the diamond?"
All of the crowd, except Chick Mil-
ler, looked mystilied and inquiring
During the latter part of Lyon's
sketchy recital Chick Miller had
picked up an evening newspaper Sind

words in pencil writing. He tore ofl
the bit of margin and handed it to

Lyon went on, after a slight pause
"The woman in the black silk lifted
the diamond, rolled It up in a piece of
gum she had been chewing, and stuck
it under the Jewelry-case. The young
man had come to retrieve the piece of
gum and its valuable kernel. Is that
a story or not?"
Frank Walton held up the piece of
paper on which Chick Miller had scrlh

"Certainly," Chick Miller said. "I

answer and handed It to Frank Wal-

LONDON'S UGLY CHURCH.
The First Sac rod Edifice In Hie World
to Be Lighted by Gas.
Readers of "Our Mutual Friend" win
remember that. Dickens gives a whin)
«lcnI description of St. John's, West-
minster, when referring to the homo of
the doll's dressmaker, Miss Jenny
"Ill tills region," ho writes, "are l
certain little street enllod Church street
and a certain littlo blind square called
Smith square. In the center of which
last retreat Is n very hideous hurcfc
with four towers at. tho four corners,
generally resembling some petrified!
monster, frightful and gigantic, on i
back, with Its legs In the air."
Lord Chesterfield said St. John's re-
minded him of an elephant with its
legs in the air, and Charles Mathewr
likened It to n dining table in tbesanj*>
St. John's enjoys the distinction of
being the first sacred edifice in tho
world to be lit by gas. As may bo jk
agined, the introduction of the new)
illuininant was deeply resented toy*
many conservative spirits, some
whom went so far as to describe it as a
sacrilege.—Manchester (Bnglaud) Co«fr

Varieties of Bridges.
Bridges are seen banging over river#
and upon noses. They also span somw.-
streets. They should not be confused,
with the game railed bridge, which
spans only time and money. Sonw,
bridges, like poker, depend entirely
upon tho draw. Bridges spend their
time in heaving up and down and leat,
Ing against their towers. The object eff
bridges is to give very one a chance
get back from where he has been, m
to go whence he can get back. Some-
times bridges are built over railroad
tracks and spend all their time In sav-
ing people from being run over. A!
bridge which is thus employed is very
happy, because It lends an upright life;
also because tho railroad company wa
sad when obliged to put It there.
Bridges are nlso used over chasms.
Every chasm ought, to have one. ft:
provides a place for children to falO
from; also it gives the chasm some-
thing to look up to.-Llfe.
