For Rome unknown reason different
parts of the tongue are assigned for
the perception of different tastes.
With the tip we taste sweet substances
and salts, with the back we taste bitter
things and with the sides we taste
pdds. The middle part of the tpngue's
surface has scarcely any sense of taste
The long named substance parabrom
benzolc sulphtnide produces a most re
markable effect, for It gives a sense of
sweetness to the point of the tongue
and of bitterness to the back. Pure
water tastes sweet after sulphate of
We can only taste things In solu

ly dry It .would not be affected by the
strongest flavored substance In a dry
The taste nerves are paralyzed by
very hot or very cold liquids. After
drinking very hot or Ice cold water
we could not taste even such a sub
stance as quinine. This fact supplies
a useful hint for consumers of ill fla
Smell, though the least useful, is the
most delicate of all our senses. We
can smell the three-hundred-millionth
part of a grain of musk. No chemical
analysis can detect such minute quan
tities. The most powerful microscope
would not render a particle ten thou
sand times as large visible. We could
not taste It were it many thousand
times as large.
While we taste liquids, we can smell
only gases. Fill your nostrils with eau
do cologne, and you will experience no
odor whatever. Fine as our sense of
smell Is, It has deteriorated immensely
since the time when our forefathers
were wild men. The Calmucks can
smell an encampment twenty mlle3
away; the Feruvlans can distinguish
all the South American races by their
But Bmell is a sense highly suscep
tible of cultivation even by the modern
white man. Dealers in tea, spices, per
fumes and drugs, in consequence of
their training, can distinguish the
faintest differences in odors.
The organ of hearing is one of the
most marvelous pieces of mechanism
in the body. In animals the external
oar acts as a trumpet to collect the
sound waves; in man it Is little more
than an ornament, but the internal ear
is alike in both. So wonderful is lt9
construction that we can distinguish
sounds varying from forty to 4,000 vi
brations per second. This feat is per
formed by a portion of the ear called
the organ of Cortl. What a wonderful
organ that is may be understood from
the fact that it consists of 5,000 pieces
of apparatus, each piece being made
up of two rods, one inner hair cell and
four outer hair cells —that is, 85,000
separate parte. In some mysterious
manner the rods, with other things, are
tuned to different notes, and when they
vibrate they cause the hairs to trans
mit an impulse to the nerve of hearing.
To bo musical, therefore, la to have a
good organ of Corti.
Why is it that scratching a piece of
glass with metal causes such an un
pleasant sound? Because it is what is
called the fundamental tone of the car,
which is very high. What the funda
mental tone exactly is would take too
much space to explain, but If you blow
across the mouth of a bottle, a hollow
globe, etc., you get Its fundamental

All other animals see most things
with one eye only. Scarcely ever can
they fix both eyes on anything at the
same time. But there are considerable
variations. A bulldog, for instance,
somewhat closely approaches the con
dition of a monkey. The larger the pu
pil the greater the quantity of light
which enters the eye. Largo pupiled
people, therefore, see the world In a
brighter and more cheerful stato than
those with small pupils. They can see
things better In the dusk or at night
Aa every one knows from the optical
illusion pictures, the eyes are easily
deceived. A white square on a black
ground appears larger than a black
square of the same size -on a white
ground. Red near green looks redder;
blue near yellow looks bluer; white
year black looks whiter.
Touch really includes several senses.
Thus there are spots on the skin which
feel heat only, spots which feel only
cold, spots which feel only pain, spots
which feel only pressure and spots
which feel tickling. These spots are
supplied with nerves capable of doing
only one particular duty. The sensa
tions of the skin are grouped by physi
ologists Into three kinds—touch, pain
and temperature. The skin which cov
ers a scar has only one kind of sensa
tion. It can feel neither pressure (touch
proper) nor temperature, but perceives
pain very acutely. The tongue is the
most sensitive of all parts to touch, the
forehead and elbow to beat or cold.
We only dream sights and sounds.
We never dream tastes or smells. If
we dream of a flower garden, we sea
.the flowers, but do not Smell them. It
we dream of a dinner, we Me the dish

WAYS OF WINGED WOOERS.
Iscidente Illustrating the Comical
Side of Bird Life.
Wooing time brings to the front the
comical side of bird'life, and methods
are as varied among our feathered
neighbors as, pmong ourselves. Tho ex
tremes of digniiied courtship and dis
reputable scrimmage were shown by
two well known birds, when the pres
ence of a rival intensified affairs.
Two purple finches, suitors for the
favor of the same sparrowilke maiden,
placed themselves on each side about a
foot from her and offered a musical
contest. First one burst into rapturous
song, flying up into the air, feathers
fluffed out anil snowy breast and rosy
shoulders more lovely than ever. The
solo finished, ho dropped back to his
perch and politely waited, while his
rival poured out his madrigal. This
alternate display continued several
minutes, and apparently the umpire
found it hard to choose, for she evaded
decision by taking flight—both suitors
Different was the method of two
orchard orioles, one in the Immature
plumage of the second year, the other
In the full glory of maturity. This
was a wrangle, accompanied by scold
ing and avian vituperation from begin
ning to end. If the theory of selection
by fine dress be true, dccislou should
have been easy, but after a whole
day's trial tho fair one ended It by
a truly feminine scorn of theories, elop
ing with her plainer suitor, leaving the
gorgeous eider to console himself with
another bride—^which he did before the
sun went down.—Collier's Weekly.
