WEIGHT OF AIR
One Cubic Foot of Atmosphere Weighs
More Than an Ounce
The common belief that air weighs
nothing or almost nothing, a belief
which has given rise the simile
"light as air," needs correction.
A toy balloon filled with a cubic,
foot of air weighs 564 grains more than
the same balloon collapsed. This shows
that the weight of a cubic foot of air
is 564 grains, which is a good deal
more than an ounce. Accordingly a
small room (15 by 15 by 10), contain
ing 2,250 cubic feet of air would weigh
2,900 ounces, or 183.7 pounds avoirdu
pois, as much as a large man. Could
you life a room full of air?
The air in an automobile tire under
pressure of 150 pounds a square inch
weighs proportionally ten times a*
much, while air under the pressure of
fifty atmospheres weighs fifty times as
much as an equal volume of ordinary
air. When air is liquefied its volume
is reduced to one sixteen-hundredth
normal, so that the liquid is 1,600
times as heavy a 9 gaseous air, or about
as heavy as water. —St. Liouis Post Dis

Let Us Go Fishing
Uncle Sam lias condemned our meats,

quantities, and declared that poultry

food will be loft us we can only guess
but we can have it now in safety so
So far as the wholesomeness of fish
is concerned it seems to occupy the
middle ground between the meat and the
vegetarian diet. Because fish is almost
bloodless and lacks the juices of meats
it does not stimulate as meat does. But
fish contains chemical salts that are as
useful as the properties of meat so
that it is as good as meat for the work
man or the invalid.
Though fish satisfies bodily needs it
does not fatten; racing men wishing to
reduce weights arc given fish in pref
erence to other foods. For the family
table the absence of certain elements
in fish is met by adding rich sauces or
other articles of food.
Small fish are best fried, after being
dredged with flour and seasoned. A
good way to do is to fry rashers of
bacon first and then cook the fish in
the remaining fat. Use the bacon for
Do not let the fish remain long in the

BARES SCHMIDT'S PLOTS
Story of Four Schemes to Escape Chair
Used in Fighting Motion for
New York, Dec. 12.—Supreme Court
; Justice Davis has reserved his decision
after hearing arguments for a new
trial for Hans Schmidt, the convicted
murderer of Anna Aumuller. He was
told by Acting District Attorney Dcle
lianty, who appeared in opposition to
the motion, that Schmidt had invented
four stories in an effort to save him
self from the electric chair. Mr. Delc
lianty said that Schmidt admitted that
he shammed insanity, that being his de-
I fense to the murder charge.
A prisoner in the Tombs started in
; an affidavit that Schmidt had discusse<l
the four plans with him. One scheme
J was to put the entire blame for the
j killing on Bertha Zech, a young ser
vant girl who was in the employ of
Finest Muret, a dentist, now in the
' penitentiary at Atlanta for counter
Another plan was to send Bertha
| Zech out of the country to a land where
there is 110 extradition treaty with the
United (States. It was suggested that
she would there make a statement to
the United States Consul that she had
performed a criminal operation on Anna
Aumuller, thereby causing death, and
exonerating Schmidt, of the charge.
The third plan was for another man
I to go to a foreign land and there take
j the blame for the crime, and the fourth
t was to get Bertha Zech to throw the
: entire blame on Dr. Arnold [<eo, who
at the trial of Schmidt admitted that
he had once examined Anna Aumuller.
According to Mr. Delehantv all of
these schemes failed because the Zech
girl would not take the part assigned
to her. Schmidt in trying to induco
her to aid him is alleged to have writ
"I prefer to think more of woman's
generosity than of their truth. My
! life is in your hands."
Miss Zech showed the letter to the
j District Attorney. She later saw
I Schmidt at Sing Sing and denied that
she had anything to do with the mur
der of Anna Aumuller.
A Worm in Paganini's Violin
When Paganini died he bequeathed
j his violin, a superb Guarnerius, to his
native town of Genoa with instruc
tions that it was to be "preserved per
petually." In 1907 fears were enter
tained that a woodworm was wreak
ing damage to the instrument, and a
special commission of experts was ap
pointed by the municipality of Genoa
to examine and report on its condition.
The commission decided that the wood-

|and served as soon as possible after
>they are caught to preserve this lovely
flavor. They are best broiled. A broiler
lof wire that folds is very good for
broiling fish and can be used on any
flame. A strong one can be had for
ten cents. Rub the wires with a little
fat, broil the fish and salt it; spread
it over with butter and squeeze on a
few drops of lemon juice as you eat it.
'The thickness of the fish and the sort of
I fire you have will decide how long to
cook the fish.

[ If you cook the smoked huddie, first
warm it a little in the oven and the

can cream it, or broil it.
There is a knack about freshening

to tell you about. It is, always lay this

it in water; if it is skin side down the

worm was nonexistent. The preseni-a
of the worm is now fully established,
and the Genoese are greatly excited
lest this memento of one of Genoa '*
most illustrious sons should ho ruined.
It is statod by experts that the worm
will not make inroads in a violin which
is regularly played, as it is expelled
by the constant vibration.
A New Disease
Professor Krich Harnack, the famous
Jena pharmacist, announces the dis
i covery of a new disease. It is a sort
of chronic copper poisoning which
J may prove fatal. It is caused by
j bridge work on the teeth. Some of
this work which was examined show
ed that only one-third was gold and
the rest other metals, especially cop
per. This resulted in slow poisoning,
nervous collapse and general decay.
I Professor Harnack warns peoplo
