Why do like poles repel when we bring two bar magnets together?

You've probably done the experiment at school: the iron filings under the piece of paper. But why do unlike poles attract and like poles repel?

    Thanks, Craeft. I was aware of the atomic theory. Was really after responses. I guess my real quesiton was the one which can't be answered as yet: Why these things repel and attract one another.
