acknowledged that so lovely a creature had never before been seen.
"Faith, the boy has eyes!" the old Prince constantly repeated, as
he turned away from a new stare of admiration, down the table.
The guests noticed a change in the character of the entertainment.
The idiot, in his tow shirt, had been crammed to repletion in the
kitchen, and was now asleep in the stable. Razboi, the new bear,--
the successor of the slaughtered Mishka,--was chained up out of
hearing. The jugglers, tumblers, and Calmucks still occupied their
old place under the gallery, but their performances were of a
highly decorous character. At the least-sign of a relapse into

Christian theologians; from mythological virgin births and the
cosmogonies and intellectual pretentiousness of a vanished age.
Modern religion appeals to no revelation, no authoritative teaching,
no mystery. The statement it makes is, it declares, a mere
statement of what we may all perceive and experience. We all live
in the storm of life, we all find our understandings limited by the
Veiled Being; if we seek salvation and search within for God,

and blotted out, presently other people would find their way to the

gas liberated on each distinct pair of electrodes. He finds the
quantity of gas to be the same for all. Thus he concludes that when
the same quantity of electricity is caused to pass through a series
of cells containing acidulated water, the electro-chemical action is
independent of the size of the electrodes. He next proves that
variations in intensity do not interfere with this equality of
action. Whether his battery is charged with strong acid or with
weak; whether it consists of five pairs or of fifty pairs; in short,
whatever be its source, when the same current is sent through his
series of cells the same amount of decomposition takes place in all.
He next assures himself that the strength or weakness of his dilute
