If the magnet Is hung up on a thread
so that It Is free t > turn and a second
magnet is brought up to It, It may be
noticed that the near end of the sec
ond magnet draws one end of the sus
pended magnet and repels the other.
The repulsion Is exerted between like
kinds of magnetism and the attraction
between unlike kinds. The earth has
all the characteristics of a permanent
magnet, and for this reason a sus
pended magnet, when allowed to come
to rest, will take up a definite posi
tion, which Is determined by the di
rection of the earth's magnetism at
the place. The end of the magnet

In this vicinity Is frequently called
the north |iole of the magnet, but the
term north-speking pole Is better, as It
distinguishes the magnetism of the
north end o f the magnet from that
of the magnetic North pole of the
earth which Is opposite In kind, as at
traction Is only exerted between poles
