LUMINOSITIES. J There are always times when we wish we could see something, which the darkness hides. The angler gives lip irecnuse he cannot sec his float ; the cricketer because he cannot aie the hall. ; Luminous paint solves all these, and scores of other difficulties. And all that is required is to add a small quantity of calcium sulphide to ordinary white paint. Foats, halls, keyholes, etc., then become visible. A watch light for use at ni-ght avoiding the striking of a mutch can lie made by putting a small piece of phosphorus into a long glass phial, and then filling it one-third full with hot oil.

It has been estimated that 97 per cent, of the Knglish-spraking people arc right-handed when they grow up. : Seventeen out of every hundred arc born right-handed, but the remaining eighty-three are born without any in clination to use one hand more than th« other, and, therefore, becomc right-handed owing to influences brought to bear on them during* their iimcl!1' men io'se' by neglecting their left hands. Formerly - in primitivn times, that is to say-evcrvone was ambidextrous ; and the sooner people become ambidextrous again the bet ter. In .Tapan, for many years past, soldiers and schoolbojs have been taught to use both hands. And this wise example is now being followed in Germany.
