The Limits of Human Hearing,
Wo can do a great deal to cultivate
the oar, but we can do nothing to ex
tend the range of sounds which the tym
panum can receive. The ear may have
great keenness of perception, may hoar
sounds extremely email, distant and
faint, and yet be always deaf to any
noise, however loud, if it is lower or
higher in pitch than the tympanum is
made for. Various experiment show
that about the lowest, or what in a mu
sical instrument would be called the
deepest bass sound, consists of 124 undu
lations in the second, and the highest of
rather more than 6,000. Human ears
have not all the same compass. A party
of young people, all with exoellont hear
ing, may go into the meadows, and some
will hoar the shrill note of the common
grasshopper, and some will not hear it
even faintly, but simply hear nothing at
Dr. Wollaston believed that "human
hearing never extends more than a note
or two above the cry of the common
Gryllus canipeBtris." He gives a scale
of sound which he found to be inaudible
to some ears. He found that some people
could not hear the cry of the bat, nor the
chirping of sparrows, which is four oc
taves above i in the middle of the piano
forte. Not to be able to hear this last
note he considers to be very rare. He
believes the whole range of human hear
ing to be compressed between the deep
est notes of the organ and the highest
cries of the insects, including fully nine
octaves, the whole of which are distinctly
audible to most ears, New York Home

THB OBNVINB AMD THE SHAM.
Every good thing has its host of imitat

The imitators always choose the most val

that when they claim their sham to be
equal, or as good, or the same as " So and
ho's," the public may depend upon it that
" So-and 8o'e " article is the best of the
kind. The sham proves the genuine merit
of the thing it copies, and never has this
been better illustrated than by the imita
tions of A LLcoex's I'oaoiis Plastsbs.
Am-cock's Poboits Plasties is the stand
