Making a Magnet
The uSmplest way of magnetising a
bar of ateel Is that known as "single
touch." The bar to bo mngnetlzed Is
luld on tbo table and the pole of a
powerful magnet Is rubbed from ten to
twenty times along Its length, always
In the same direction. If the north
pole of the magnet is employed tbe end
of the bar first touched will also be
come a north pole, wblle tbe opposite
end, at which the magnet is lifted be
fore returning, will be a south pole.
There are other and more compli
cated methods, known as "divided
touch" and "double touch." In which
two and even four magnets are em
ployed. A steel bar can also be magnetized
by placing it within a coll of Insulated
wire, through which a galvanic cur
rent Is circulating. The magnetism in
duced In this way, however, la weak

cured if the sume strength of current

Disraeli Placated Carlyle.
Carlyle's opinion of Herbert Spencer
as "the most unending ass In Christen
dom" must, of course, be read in con
junction with Carlyle's derision for
mankind In general. "Mostly fools,"
he cheerfully thought of us all. Dar
win, we know, be would not have at
any price not a word of him. Buskin
was a bottle of soda water. "A bud
young man" was his sum-up of another
eminent writer. But these hostile
phrases were subject to considerable
modification If the man against whom
they were aimed came near enough to
Carlyle to do him a personal favor,
even to pay him a personal compli
ment Disraeli, whom he hud describ
ed as a mountebank dancing upon
John Bull's stomach, offered Carlyle a
baronetcy and elicited from him, to
gether with a refusal of the title, many
tributes to his magnanimity. lie said
very little about Disraeli henceforth in
print, and in private he spoke of him
only as "a very tragical comical fel
low." The World's Largest Flying Bird.
Among the most notable birds in the
London zoo Is what Is generally re
garded as the largest flying bird In
the world. It is known ns the lammer
geyer (lamb vulture, or bearded vul
ture). This giant bird Is from India
and Is the largest of all eagles or vul
tures. Its wings measure over four
teen feet from tip to tip, and It Is not
yet full grown. The lammergeyer is
found in mid-Europe, Asia and north
Africa. It is said to live mainly on
carrion, but it is not averse to creat
ing carrion by knocking an unwary
chamois or goat over a precipice with
a blow from Its tremendous wing, aft
erward flying down to the body to ob
tain a meal. Even mountaineers have
been reported as having fallen victims
to this method of assault- London

his running mate being James Schoolcraft Sherman, of
New York, the present Vice President.
Theodore Roosevelt is to form a new Progressive party
of which he is of course to be the standard bearer, and
the country is to be saved. He hopes for assistance from
the Democratic camp, providing the Baltimore conven

GLACIER NATIONAL PARK.
Filled With Scenery of Wonderful and
Glacier National park, it may be said
without fear of contradiction, is the
most wonderful natural park in the
World. It comprises approximately
U13.000 acres In northwestern Mon
tana and embraces more than 1,400
square miles of the Bocky mountains.
This vast park is bounded on the
north by the Canadian line, on the east
by the BlaclJfoot Indian reservation,
on tbe west by the north fork of the
Flathead river and on the south by the
main line of the Great Northern rail
way, by which alone It can be reached.
Within its great area are 900,000
acres of wild land that has never been
trod by the surveyor. It is filled with
scenery of reckless grandeur. Within
its confines are more than sixty gla
ciers and many mountain peaks clad
in the eternal snows. Lake McDonald,
another of its wouders, is 3,150 feet
above sea level and surrounded by

U shaped valley, is another of the end

OUR STRONGEST MUSCLES.
The Chief One and the Largest Is the
The strongest muscle in the human
body is the gluteus maximus. Hardly
a movement of the lower extremities
can be made without bringing it into
play, but its chief duty Is to balance
the-pelvis on the head of the thigh
bone. It assists in carrying the leg
forward and outward iu walking, and
without Its aid auy movement of the
body from the hips would bet impossi
ble. As It Is the strongest, so is it also the
largest muscle we possess. In the full
grown man it can exert a force of 110
pounds to the square Inch of its section
in the thickest part.
Another strong muscle, which Is situ
ated iu the calf of the leg, is capable
of sustaining seven times the weight
of the body. The great tendon which
is inserted iu the heel bone and which
is called tendon nchilles, is also of sin
gular strength. When removed from
tlie body it has sustained a weight of
2,000 pounds, yet sometimes by the
siuMen action of the muscles of the
calf, to which It belongs, it has been
