this that (Htiple who are somewhat
deaf are able to hear better when they
listen with their mouths open.
Now we come to the Inmost ear,
which Is made up of three part.t The
first one Is culled the vestibule, or ball,
and It has a drumhead to which the
chain of little bones Is attached.
The hall leads to the other parts.

part Is made of three semicircular
canals. The other Is shaped exactly as
a snail's shell. All these make up n
peculiar labyrinth, and all are com
pletely filled with a curious fluid. Their
xvulls are lined with the soft, pulpy
nerves of hearing which communicate
with the brain. Owim; to these com
plex and winding cavities, a icrent ex

Now let us see what haplen when
somebody says "Hear!" to you.
The air is thrown Into vibrations,
Which spread out und out Until they
touch the side of your head. There
the fleshy Hap on one side collects and
ma'iillles the vibrations.

they reach the membrane of the drum
of the ear. They strike on the mem.
brane, which adapts Itself to them.

If you keep your mouth wide open

Y'ou will see from this that what are
commonly called the ears are not es
sentially necessary to bearing, after
Well, however the vibrations are re
ceived, they finally strike against the
membrane covering the entrance to the
hall of the labyrinth. Thence they
make the fluid which fills the labyrinth
vibrate. Those vibrations act on the
fibers of the auditory nerve, the fibers
which coat the Inner car. Along this
nerve the Impressions are communicat
ed to the brain. In this manner the
sensation of sound Is produced, and
you know that somebody said "Hear."'
