It happened, however, to Dr. Adolf Ehren- felt. It has just been announced that the Hungarian National museum has ac­ quired this book by priA-ate treaty. Al­ though it was on Sotheby's catalogue at a reserve price of £1,000, (t Is stated tfiat the price actually paid is much in excess of that sum. 1 1 A hundred years ago Michael Fara­ d-ay discovered benzene. Of all Ills dis­ coveries, scientists consider that of benzene to be the most important. At the time of Faraday’s discovery, gas was compressed into iron cylinders and supplied in the same way as oxygen is today. With the natural curiosity of a scientist, Faraday ex­ amined the gas and so discovered ben­ zene—a substance composed of six parts carbon and six parts hydrogen, The actual form of joinery between the carbon and the hydrogen opened up a new field of thought for the diem* 1st. Benzene should be pictured as a hexagon formed of carbon with an atom of hydrogen at each of the six points. The book is the first printed In Magyar tongue, and Is known to lectors as the Codex Ehrenfelt. the ed­ it the got seed other New steel and contains 81 pages and dates from year 1430. Its former owner, Doctor Ehren­ felt a Viennese lawyer, came into pos­ session of the book to an unusual way. In 1851 he >vas a student at Nyitra, In Avhat was then northern Hungary. One day, while he was wrestling AA’ith a companion, this book was hurled play­ fully at his head and he pocketed it It was only many years laterlhat he rediscovered it, examined it, and he- Sort of a Chain Quarrel » My father used to tell a story about a couple recently married who Into an argument. “I saw a rat,\ she said. *Tt was a mouse,\ he replied. 4,I say ’twas a rat,\ she declared. “A mouse,\ he rejoined.

Thrust into a world where nearly every lixing thing is constantly in search of food, the May fly goes Its way with never a thought of food, writes W. A. DtiPuy in Nature Maga­ zine. Surrounded by creatures that lie in wait and devour each other, the May fly eats not nor thinks of eating. It does not even possess a mouth with which it might eat if it felt so dis­ posed. It comes into the world with a certain amount of vitality in its frail body, it dances gayly until that strength is gone, and dies. Equally strange is the birth of the May fly, a birth which almost any ob­ server may witness if he happens to he sharp-eyed by the xvaterslde almost anywhere at just the right minute. If he watches closely he may see many tiny creatures as big as house flies emerging from the mud at the bottom of the lake or stream. Mr. and Mrs. Author wTere going out for the evening.

One day his lit.tle granddaughter en­ ticed him into a teashop, and, leading him to a small table, proceeded to or­ der some eclairs, a delicacy of which she was extremely fond. \I knoxv you’ll like them, granddad,\ she said coaxingly, and the old gentle­ man bravely tackled the unfamiliar ob­ ject. \Isn’t that delicious?\ inquired the little girl, seeing a strange expression come over her grandfather's face as he took his first mouthful. \Well it may be,\ replied grandfa­ ther in a noncommittal tone; “hut doesn’t it appear to you a trifle under­ baked in the middle?\ Tragedy of Razor Blades Those who are puzzled tv know xvhat to do xvith used safety razor blades may find a hint in the follow­ ing, says the London Mail. A young and pretty girl approached Battersea bridge. She liel-d something tightly in her left hand. When she reached the middle of the bridge she stopped and looked around. Only one man was anywhere near, and he, apparently, was not paying any attention to her doings. In a flash she raised her hand and flung some­ thing into the river below. It glittered and shone as it fell, and the man, gazing over the bridge in curiosity, saxv that it xvas a small glass phial of the sort in which powdered bath salts are sold, twelve in a box. His curios­ ity overcame him, and he overtook the girl. \Do tell me what you threw into the river,\ he begged. \My husband’s razor blades,\ xvas the astonishing an­ swer. r Penn Yon SS2 < WALTER 9.
