8PRINQ8 ON THE PUMP.
Simple Invention Does Away With
Tho pump is still largely used all
ovor tho world desplto tho oxtonslvo
introduction of water systems In sub
urban nnd oven In country districts.
Tho task of pumping Is always unro
mantle or irksome. It is an occupa
tion that no ono delights in, and while
it frequently happens that a gontlo
man will cut down a treo for exercise,
It novor occurs to him to pump a
couplo of tons of water to tho surfaco
from tho bottom of a big wsll. This
Would afford Just as much oxorclso and
bo of as much practical uso. In
country houses and other places whero
there aro tanks to bo kopt filled by
hand It Is a matter of somo difficulty
to keep tho reservoir filled. With tho
spring arrangomont shown, which
can bo readily fastened to almost any
pump, tho labor Is greatly cut down.
It Is truo that tho work Is not mado
ontraneing and that tho chlldron will
not cry for tho plensuro of pumping,
but tho work will bo mndo much
easier, as tho Bprlnga themselves will
lift a certain amount of tho wator.

Immense Whale Brought Ashore.

Tho quality of ambition that led
