Then, having marked the temperature,
I put the rod hot tip of the poker half

there steadily for half a minute, and
as soon as It was withdrawn I dipped
the bulb of a sensible thermometer
Into the water, when It rose in a few

He then determined the temperature
of the water at the bottom after five
minutes, after twenty minutes and aft

Tyrant Rule of th Autocrat of ths

The "concierge" Is considered to be
the bane of tbe Parisian lint dweller's
existence. His functions are supposed
to be tbe following:
Tbe first nnd most Important Is to
collect tbe rent on qunrter day; after
that he must see that tbe tenants do
not surreptitiously remove. The latter
precaution seems to be somewhat un
necessary, as rents In Paris sre always
paid In advance.
He should also bring np your letters
at least twice a day, but as tbe con
cierge is generally a stout, middle aged
woman who has a decided objection to
climbing stairs tbe bitter regulation re
mains somewhat of a dead letter.
In Paris the front door of most
bouses Is generally closed at 10 o'clock.
After that time admittance can only be
obtained by ringing a belL The con
