AN AMAZING MACHINE
ASTONISHING CLAIMS MADE BY A
A Cigar Shaped Contrivance, Made
"Wholly of Human Hair, Which "Will
Not Only Fly, but "Will Do Duty as a
Blind Reader What the Inventor Says.
John Millmore is either one of the most
thoroughgoing cranks of this cranky age
or a genius who is destined to occupy quite
a prominent niche in the temple of fame
and in the future rank as one of Brooklyn's
favorite sons. Mr. Millmore has invented
a flying machine not, however, the sort of
machine made familiar to people by pre
ceding inventors, who fondly imagined they
themselves, with their corporal bodies,
could, by utilizing certain forces and ex
panding a pair of artificial wings, cleave
the air with them and soar into the realms
of space, but a machine which shall have
electricity for a motive power and be used
merely for telephonic purposes, and it may
be in the semioccult manner referred to
The machine proper is shaped like a
cigar. The materials are nothing mora
nor less than human hair, and though Mr.
Millmore's first machine will be when in
flated for practical purposes 40 feet in
height, and when in motion about 30 feet
wide at the base, it can be compressed in
the hand to the size of an ordinary rubber
ball, and like that article so dear to small
boys may be carried about in the pocket.
At least that is what the inventor says.
Near the top and near the bottom of the
cigar are suspended oblong globes which
are to be used as illuminators, so that
every one who likes may see the machine
in its rapid flight and watch it shoot
through space and rise and fall at the will
of the operator. Without a knowledge of
electricity in both the writer and the read
er it is difficult to describe the machines
or its workings and uses, but what Mr.
Jlillmore says about it is something like
"It is a talking as much as a flying ma
chine, and it will, if I am successful, carry
messages by the column to all parts of the
world. It is constructed of human hair,
because that is the most perfect conductor
of electricity the mind of man can con
ceive. It is light and it is so strong that
when driven by electricity the fiercest
storm cannot turn it from its course. Elec
tricity will carry the language employed
in messages through the hair tubes. But
before proceeding further I may explain
that this machine is propelled from a dark
room, and received in a dark room at its
place of destination. I sit here in front of
a keyboard as the propeller, and I guide it
to the right or to the left, depress or ele
vate it at pleasure without the slightest
difficulty, for the keyboard has switches
for the purpose that a child could operate.
As you will perceive in the diagram the
hairs extend above the top. Their points
are dipped in carbon, which prevents their
burning. The stranded threads sloping on
either side from the base are drawing and
projecting wires respectively. They regu
late the movements of the machine.
HUMAN HAIR ENOUGH.
"Where would I procure human hair?
How many women die in a year? The
hair they leave after them would suffice to
take my machine around the world a
hundred times and it would surely be
more usefully employed that way than
moldering beneath the earth. Of course it
would have to be prepared by dipping in
carbon or some solution equally simple.
The idea of sending out a machine con
structed of hair, making it fly at the rate
of a mile in a few seconds, and carrying in
its ribs, which are the hairs, an oration of
four hours duration to be spoken once more
on the phonograph plan at the other end of
the world may seem absurd at first but
not so after awhile. The telegraph was
laughed at in the beginning, so was the
telephone, so was the phonograph in fact
so was every new invention. By operating
in a dark room where there are mirrors
you can see the machine, or its negatives,
wherever it goes, and so regulate its move
ments with mathematical precision by aid
of the key and switchboards already re
"Do you mean to say that you will send
out a machine which, running on hair
lines, will do all you predict for it?"
"I shall do so with God's help, if I live
"But after all. Mr. Millmore, that would
not be so vast an improvement as regards
usefulness to mankind."
This was put suggestively, and the in
ventor, if he is one, hesitated before reply
ing: "At the risk of being considered a still
greater crank, I shall answer that there is
something else in the machine a mind
"A mind reader. Do you see that
straight line running right through from
the top to the bottom of the diagram?
That is a mind reading wire. I have dis
covered, startling as the assertion may
sound, that brain may communicate with
brain by means of a wire, an all but invisi
ble hair wire, applied to a certain part of
the forehead in a certain way. It is only
necessary to place it to the forehead of the
person whose thoughts are to bo read; the
reader may hold it in his hand. Now, yon
will admit that if practicable this would
be an important discovery. Statesmen in
Washington and in Loudon could in this
way, through the machine, read what was
passing in the brains of each other and
none but themselves be the wiser.
FOK DETECTING CRIMINALS.
"But apart from the machine the appli
cation of this hair wire might play an im
portant part in the detection of criminals.
How? Why, by placing it against their
foreheads and thus making them confess.
A man cannot refuse to think; that would
be impossible. Yes. the almost invisible
wire, which, like a geometrical line, may
be said to have position, but not magni
tude, enters the pores of the flesh and can
be sent around into contact with the brain.
A physiologist will tell you this is not im
possible. "Now," said Mr. Millmore in conclusion,
"I am aware that I have expressed iiyself
very badly, and perhaps you will interpret
me oven worse. None but a scientific per
son an expert can understand my theory
or my invention, much less convey my idea
accurately to other. Unfortunately I am
h poor man and all but illiterate. Remem- '
ber that some of the greatest men the
world has known were poor and illiterate.
Some of the apostles were so, and I under
stand that Stephenson, who invented the
steam engiue, could neither read nor writ.
All I ask of science is not to laugh at- me
until they have heard me and seen !my
model, so far as my humble means has al
lowed me to construct it. If they pronounce
it practicable money will come to operate
it. Brooklyn Eagle.

PILLOWS AND PILLOWS.
Suggestions About Stuffing Them All
Sorts or Pretty Covers.
In the days of fourteen necessary pillows
to a divan, and the many window seats and
corners of our modern houses, apparently
built to receive them, it is well to think of
some variety in their make, says Harper's
Bazar, which offers some useful sugges
tions, among them the following.
Of course the main expense of these pil- j
lows is in the stuffing, as the cover can be
made very effective in a hundred inexpen
sive v:vs. Manr ivonlc ara such vandals t
as to cut up old bolsters for this use, and
others use the spare room pillows; if they
are square, all the better, making the
cover easy to slip off when the guest ar
rives and demands his pillow. There
seems nothing that can be used in place of
the expensive hair, feathers or down that
is equally satisfactory, ia spite of -the sug
gested subterfuges of fine cut rags, stripped
paper and excelsior.
A very pretty cover can be made of crash,
with the allover design of flowers or a
geometrical design worked in outline in
one shade of embroidery silk and a narrow
hemstitched edge all around the square.
This can be laced with cord to a plain
back, hemstitched the same way, or the
edge can have eyelets and be laced or tied
together with small ribbon bows.
Again, a mere pillowcase can be made of
a figured silk hemstitched at one end and
tied in two or three places with ribbon to
close the end. This is a good method for
the spare room pillow needed for other
use on occasion.
Japanese cotton makes a very pretty in
expensive cover, and with little work can
be made prettier by outlining the design
in filoselle, and the same can be done with
cretonne. When you come to more elabo
rate ones, any amount of work in silk em
broidery, ribbon embroidery, cord braiding
or drawn work for linen covers can be put
on to the small square of silk, wool or
A bit of oriental embroidery, four small

A tovely Silk Itug.
One of the loveliest rugs I ever Eaw was
made, says a writer in Country Gentle
man, of silk, not for utility but merely for
show. All the old ribbons and pieces of
light colored silk found in the family were
collected together and dyed in brilliant
colord with Diamond dyes, then cut into
Btrips half an inch wide and just four
inches long, after which they were knit
into strips by the use of coarse knitting
needles and coarse knitting cotton, a piece
of the silk being added every alternate
stitch,, in just the manner our mothers
used to knit fringed mittens. The pieces
of silk were added in hit-and-miss order,
and the strips were knit in garter stitch.
Three strips six inches wide and three
fourths of a yard long were used for a cen
terpiece (after being sewed together on the
under side). Then a border six inches
wide, knit in the same manner from black
silk, surrounds the centerpiece; after this
a crimped fringe of black worsted sur
rounds the whole. The rug is mounted
upon a heavy piece of carpeting. It is
highly admired by all who have seen it.
Two cups of sugar, one half cup of but

four eggs, beaten stiff, one large spoonful

grated rind and juice of a large lemon, one
cup of sugar, a spoonful of butter and one
cup of water. When boiling, thicken with
two spoonfuls of corn starch dissolved in a
little water. Spread very thickly between
the cakes, and cover the top of all with the
yolks of two eggs, beaten very creamy with
A Laco Pattern.
The pretty laces for trimming dainty

are nice "catch up" work for which new
patterns are always acceptable. The ac
companying unique arrangement of tho

making it as follows:
Twenty-three chain. Nineteen trebles.
Three trebles, three double guipure
stitches, five treble, six chain, one treble.
Three chain, eleven treble, one chain, five

to make six holes in the edge of scallop.
One short stitch, two treble, repeat in
every hole, nineteen treble. Three chain,
two treble, cne chain, one treble, repeat
to tho scallop when six chain begins an
other. This ladder is repeated, making
a double ladder with a row of treble be

Be sure that the lamp chimney fits close

thoroughly and keep them in a dry place.
