HEAT, n.  Heat, says Professor Tyndall, is a mode   Of motion, but I know now how he's proving  His point; but this I know -- hot words bestowed   With skill will set the human fist a-moving,  And where it stops the stars burn free and wild.  _Crede expertum_ -- I have seen them, child.               Gorton Swope. -Ambrose Bierce
