Thackeray at the Minttrel.
When the Christy minstrels cm me to
London In 1857 Thackeray was eu
chantod with tbem. "I heard not long
since," be says in one of his letters, "a
minstrel who performed a negro ballad
that, I confess, moistened these specta
cles in a most unexpected manner. I
have gazed on thousands of tragedy
queens dying on tbe stage and expiring
in appropriate blank verse, and I never
wanted to wipe them. They have look
ed up, be it said, at many scores of
clergymen without being dimmed, and,
behold, a vagabond, with a corked
face and n banjo, sings a little song
and strikes a wild note which sets tbe
heart thrilling with happy pity." Clad
stone, too, was nn admirer of tbe
Christy minstrels and was often to be
seen listening to tbetr songs with rapt
attention. London Chronicle,

There Is an outstanding point of dif

economic independence for women
throughout their lives.
Thus in Copenhagen more than 1,000
married women work ns clerks In of

WATCHING WATER FREEZE.
An Easy Way to Make the Growth of
Ice Crystals Visible,
it is not commonly known that fresh
water may sometimes be "colder than
Ice" and that the growth of ice crystals
may be made plainly visible. An in
teresting experiment to show this may
easily be made.
Fill a clean pint bottlo wltb distilled
water. Make a bole In the stopper
large enough to let the thermometer
pass through It The kind of ther
mometer used in physical laboratories
is most convenient Insert tbe stop
per in the bottlo and let tbe thermome
ter reach nearly to tbe bottom.
rack snow or ice and salt round tbe
bottle as yon would pack an ice cream
freezer. If the, bottlo Is not Jarred
tbe temperature may be seen to drop
several degrees below tbe freezing
point without freezing the water.
If the stopper and thermometer are
now removed and a small piece of ice
free from nny trace of salt is inserted
in the bottle and pushed down into tbe
water crystals of Ice may be seen to
shoot out in all directions from It
After this experiment bas been tried
yon will have some understanding of
the network of Ice girders which is be
neath the ice coating of small ponds.
