^ Ily CHAUI.l
It has always seemed to nio that
Uncle Jarve's "water-draRon" was tho
most useful, practical and efficient
fire-fighter which I have ever seen,
especially for mills, factories, creameries
and so forth, where there is
water, steam or any other power. It
' could be used, howov >r, at farms,
stores or residences?at any place, indeed,
where a small power Is installed.
It was one of Unclo Jarve's odd
contrivances when he was at Grand
father Adams', lording it over my
brother "Foley" and myself. Ho first
rigged one at tho old paper-pulp
mill in tho woods, where we were
turning dowels and manufacturing
shovel-handles from ash.
Uncle Jarve had not been at the
mill for some time, but one afternoon
about the middle of August, when
our (earn came back from the railway
station, lo! there he sat beside the
driver; and he had in tho back of the
wagon two omntv oil-barrels, and a
lot of wire and other iron gear.
"Now look out," Poley said to me,
under Ills breath. "Ho <?n your guard,
or he will stick us for something or
other. Don't pay him another cent,
Uncle Jarve. however, appeared to
bo in one of his absorbed, thoughtful,
inventive moods. Ho said hardly
a word to us, but went walking about
and round the mill, whistling low to
himself all the roet. of tho aftornoon.
At lust be took supper wltli ua aud
stayed overnight, still without, saying
a word as to what, ho had como for or
why ho had brought the oil-barrels.
But the next, day ho got to work;
in fact, he had. a;j it. now appeared,
been making his preparations and
getting liis ironwork done for a week
Ho rolled one of tho heavy barrols
into tho mill, and during all the rest
of the forenoon ho was rigging a kind
of drum on (ho main shaft, of the
mill, for winding his coil of wire.
In the afternoon wo saw him winding
tho wire round tho outside of the
oil-barrel. He wound it very lightly
and made both onds fm:t :it fiir.1
That was about all ho did that day;
but tho next day h brought in his

was to secure the barrel-heads against

It was water-tight and nearly, if not
After that he whistled and walked
round for a while, ami sang a song
or two in his rasping, unmusical
voice; but in the. afternoon ho became
silently busy again, attached a
crank to tlio spare end of the main :
shaft, so as to convert circular motion
to back word and forward motion, and
then connected to that a small but
strong pump, sot horizontally, with a
pipo from it down to tho water under
"Now what do you supposo ho is tip
to?" Foley asked ine.
That was more than f could guess,
we went about our business and protended
to take 110 notice,
lrnclo Jarve whistled most of the
next day, but got. to work toward ;
night, set. his barrel on end at the!
wain m uiu nun, and secured it. in
place with a collar and braces. Jle
then connected his pump to the IniiiKholo
of tho barrel with a bit of iron
plpfi?and wont home.
After ho had gone, I'oley and I J
looked it all over, bus. could make
nothing on1, of it.

lint tho next day Urn If? Jarve came
back, lie had walked all tho way up
to the mill; and ho brought, coiled
over lils head and shoulders, about
forty font of hoao, which he had
wound Willi wire. Tho hoao had h
nozzle on it at ono end, and Mt the |
other a valve and scrow connectlori.
Ho wan whittling happily f<> himself;
and he now proceoded to boro
a hole in the top head of tho barrol

After that ho touted if. all l lion #at
and looked it ov?r, and walk?*l round
tho mill for as murh aa an hour. By
that tlmo it was; noon, and hr? onmo in
to dinner with tho nut of us. Just an
wo woro getting up from tho table,
I'oley said, "Undo larvo, I'd lik to

"Oh, yes, yes, wo know that you'vo

"Hut some of us can oarn a living

Poley burst out with something or
other in reply, but Undo Jarvo out
it short. "Oh, drop that," said ho,
"and como along out to the mill; I
want to show you tho finest thing
you over saw."
We went out with him, and our
three hired men. who were also very
curious, followed us.
Uncle Jarvo looked perfectly happy.
"Now, Chuck," said he, "I've given
you a dead-sure thing in tho way of
protecting your mill from lire. It's
fully equal to a steam fire-eugiue;
and it is so inexpensive and cheap
than anybody can have one."

PROPOSED NEW CALENDAR.
Divides tho Year Into Thirteen
Months, Each Having 28 Days.
We have recelvod from iSan Francisco,
a copy of a proposed oalondar
whoso aim la to avoid tho acknowledged
drawbacks of the Gregorian calendar
substituting one that Is bet
ter suited to the requirements of our
every-day life. Although the Gregorian
calendar dates from the year 1682,
long before that many and various improvements
bad been suggosted for
conveniently dividing the 365 days of
tho year into weeks and months. Our
correspondents ask: "Are we not
again far enough advanced beyond
the times of 1582 to adopt certain other
changes?" And they offer a calendar
which divides the flfty-two weeks
of the iy>ear into 1" months, each having
exactly tweut>*-elght days. The
ftr?rt of January and tho first of every
one of the twelve succeeding months
fall on a Sunday, and the 28t.h or last
day of each month therefore, falls on a
Saturday. The obvious advantage of
this arrangement Is that, sinco each
day of the week must bo ono of four
numb or s out of the 28th (Sunday for
arnjr month of the year being either tho
1st, 8th, 15th, or 22d; Tuesday either
tho 3d, 10th, 17th, or 24th, etc.) Lf ono

The "additional month necessary under
thle system is namod by its spon ore
"Vincent"; and it is placed in
the calendar between June and July.
Thirteen months of twenty-eight
days, however, give a total of only 364
days for the year, and to ao^mmodato
the odd day it is proposed that be|
tween 8?turda>, the last day of De|
cenVbrr, and Sunday, the first day of
January, there should be a day to bo

to separate 1t from tho Vast d?.y

of the simplicity and convenience of

Hoard of Education by Edw. S. Cornell,
secretary of the National Highways
Protective Society, Egerton L?.
Wlnthrop, Jr., president of the Board
of Education, yesterday nant tn tho
principals of all public schools in tho

Tho letter follows:
"In accordance with a letter received
from the National Highways
Protective Society, l desire you to
bring to the attention of all pupils in
your school the Importance of their
exorcising great caro when on tho
streets, so as to avoid the danger of
urnnb run down oy automobiles, etc.
"It is a common practice for children
to attach themselves to moving
vehicles, wagons and carts, and then
jump off suddenly, thereby incurring
serious risks. They also frequently
dart out from behind piles of brick,
lumber, etc., on the streets and highways,
and not infrequently try to s^e
uun tiu?u niw.v can escape oeing run
over by a motor vehicle. Many drivers
of automobiles run their machines
in a most reckless manner, and the
danger to the people of the strectB,
especially lo children, is very great.

to your pupils cannot fail to have a
good effect in reducing the number of
accidents."?New York Herald.

my will, how strongly T hold to tho
view that every man should, during
some substantial portion of his life,
and certainly during his early manhood,
have some definite occupation,
and lead a useful life, and should not
suffer wealth or any accession of
wealth or other temptation to tempt,
him into Idleness, and a mere loafing
and useless existence.
"I might have so framed this my

many cases of female ills, such as inllammation,

to try it, and the result is worth millions
to many suffering women.
