The Itev. D. Z. Shcfflcltl of tho Amer
ican Hoard Mission, president of tho
T'uug.cho college for Chinese students,
sajs tho New Yotk Press, lias Invented
a typewriter for tho Chinese.
The Chinese language consists of'at
lenst 50,000 characters, and a careful
analysis of tho classical works ns well
as of the spoken kangungo has shown
that not moro than C,000 aro In general
use, whllo 4,000 are amplo for almost
every purpose. Tho typewriter which
Dr. Sbctllold invented w rites this num
ber. The 4,000 characters aro grouped
In alphabetical order, according to
their accepted spelling lu Hugllsh, a
largo number of thoso most commonly
used being placed In n separate group
regardless of spelling. The typo aro
cast on tho under part of a largo wheel,
tho upper side of which Is covered with
printed characters, each ono exactly
over tho typo It represents.
TJio carriage moves freely to tho
right or left, and projecting from It Is
a pointer to locate the characters to be
printed. Tho wheel Is revolved with
the left hand until the group or line lu
which tho desired characters to be
found Is opposite the carriage, aud the
cnrrlago Is then moved with tho right
hand to tho right or left until tho
pointer covers the character sought
for. To the right Is a crank, ono turn
of which Inks tho type, whllo a small
hammer fo'recs tho paper against tho
type, leaving a clear Impression. Tho
typo wheel locks during tho printing
mulls automatically corrected If slight
ly out of place, tho characters being
brought Into perfect alignment. TJio
mechanism performs the operation of
spacing, etc., ns In other machines.
When It Is considered that tho writ
ten diameters consist of from 2 to 2."i
strokes, which even tho best Chlneso
scholar writes slowly, as they handle)
the brush delicately, and that a char
acter signifies not n letter, but a wholo
word, It will readily bo seen that Dr.
Bhetllcld's machine saves a great
amount of time nnd labor, while It of
fers tho advantages of other machines
namely, uniformity, accuracy, exact
spacing and neat work.
Ono of tho handiest things Imagina

which stands on the table aud bolM

fuss of any sort. When tho kettle Is
removed, crackers can be warmed on
the utnudard or Welsh rabbit madu In

from one to to quarts aud may be

A local clergyman is telling a joke on
himself. He went to Chicago on busi
ness nnd was asked by a family in bis
church to call on a married daughter
there. Tho pastor called nnd received a
hospitable welcome. They urged him
to come to dinner, but ho had an en
gagement. Then thoy remarked, "Well,
will you not eat a little lnncbeonl"
The hostess pointed as she spoko to a

I den't caro if I do," replied tho caller,
who drew np n chair and began an on

they had boon arranged expressly for
him, and it wns only after no had got

"Madam, what must yon think of
