A HAIR'S THICKNESS.
A curious little lnacliino in the of
lieu of tho Chief of the Stamp Hu
reatt of the I'ost-olllce Dcpatliueiit
is the cause of the cancellation of
the contract of the New England
firm villi the Government for fur
nishing envelopes to the Tost-olllce
Department. It it a queer looking
contrivance, a cross between a' set
of liiitchcis' scales anil oidinarj gro
ccis'scalcs, or lalher a combination
of the two. Thcio is a laige dial,
like the face of a clock, villi the
little hand that Hies mouml the f ap
pointing to the tlgiucs at the hide,
which arc arranged like the figures
on the clock face, with little dots
between. "You tee these dots?"
said the gentleman in charge, in
quiringly. "Well, the space be
tween these indicates one sixteen
thousandth of an inch. Getting it
down pretty fine, isn't it? You sec
this movable piece of iion lieic
which comes down with a smooth
surface upon this other solid sur
face? Well, the taising or lowciing
of that moves the pointer which
runs round the dial. To test the
thickness of a sheet of paper wc
simply place it bctw een this mov
able piece and the solid surface be
low, and when the movable piece
of iion comes down upon the paper
the hand registers the true thick
ness of the paper. Delicate instiit
ment? Well, 1 should think so.
Just give me a hah fioin your head.
Then he took a haii and slipped it
deftly between the two pieces. The
hand on the dial followed the
motions of the screw until it stopped
at the figures 'JO. "Just 20 KJ-1,-000
of an inch in diameter," he
said. "Now let me tiy a hair of
your moustache. They are generally
much laiger, especially if you arc in
the habit of shaving." He took up
a pair of scissois, clipped off a hair
from the moustache and placed it in
position. The hand stopped at .10.
"Fifty sixtecn-lhoiisandths of an
inch thick," he said; "that shows
the effect of shaving. 1 nicasuied
a hair from the hand of a gentleman
a few minutes ago which was 10
1G-I,000ths thick, but those in his
moustache were piecisely the Same
thickness, the reason being that he
never shaved. Yes, that is the ma
chine that proved that the firm
making our envelopes w as not ful
filling its contract," he said, as he
fell back admit ingly.
"By this dial wc can sec just the
thickness. By this lccr, which is
very much like a pair of grocct's
scales, wc can tell just what ptes
surc the paper will stand. You sec
we have two other movable pieces
of iion bete, with a hole entitely
through both, and a plunger which
passes through that hole. Well, wc
put the paper between those pieces,
which, when they ate picssed tightly
together by this lever, hold it dimly.
The plunger which passes through
the opening in the two pieces of
iron, encounteis this paper thus
firmly held. To know what the
pressuio is, wc have the plunger at
tached to a scale lever w itli a weight
attached like an ordtnaty pair of
scales, and by moving this weight
out along the lever until the paper
breaks, of course we can see what
the weight is that makes it break.
.See? Very simple after you under
stand it. Well, that is what the
paper-makers thought aftei they had
lost an 80,000 contract by it. It
was a new thing to them, but they
acknowledged that they were beaten
when they saw it."
This delicate instrument, only tc
ccntly invented, is a companion
piece to the scales in the Assayer's
office of the Treasury, bj' which the
weight of a hair is accurately tested.
A fashion item says: "A vciy
useful and ornamental gift to cither
lady or gentleman is an umbrella
holder." If this means something
which will hold an umbrella when
an absent-minded deacon ttics to
walk off with it, wc second the
motion. 1'hiUulclph ia (Jail.

way to preserve a piano. Tho best
way to preserve it piano is to cut it
in quarters, take out tho core and
boil the pieces until they aio half
