B; llutchlns. CHEROKEE, Iowa, March 7, 1896.— To the Editor: Replying to an article in the current number of THE UPPER DES MOINES, entitled "Something for the Scientists," I should like to offer an explanation of one of the phenomena referred, to. In regard to the appearance of a wind mill wheel in motion when seen by the light of a flush of lightning; anyone who has studied physics will remember theexperiments illustrating the persistence of vision. A familiar one is found in a swiftly revolving carriage wheel, in which the spokes pass the line of sight in such rapid succession that they appear to form a solid wheel. Another example is the appearance of a landscape as seen through tho cracks of a " vertical board" snow fence when one is riding in a fast train. If your position was stationary your view would be very limited, but by the swift motion of the train you obtain a view through several interstices before the preceding ones have been lost to your sense of sight, thus giving you a continuous view, though a luxzy one. In the ex ample next referred to, the conditions are different but the principle remains the same. The lightning flash apparently occupies some time in its passage, but in fact is almost instantaneous, The view of surrounding objects obtained by its light must then be cor- A M. & G. M.

Many experienced cooks would have been glad to claim the credit of making many of the biscuits. T HERE are many cooks who may have been discouraged with the results of their attempts at baking, when they may not have been at fault.' A good stove is always a necessary part of good cooking.
