COMFORT IN AN AUTOMOBILE
Electric Brougham That Abounds in
There is no man in New York city
prouder of his automobile and proba.
bly none with better reason thar.
Robert Graves. says the New York
Evening World. The machine, an
electric auto of the brougham type,
constructed after his own ideas and
built under his own supervision, took
seven months to build, and its cost
is estimated at nearly $15,ooo.
The machine is constructed of alu
minium plates finished to resemble
mahogany, and although it carries a
storage battery of sixty-eight cells,
enough to run the machine at a rate
of twenty miles an hour for sixty
miles, it weighs only 8,oo pounds.
The cells of the battery are so ar
ranged that the front wheels carry the
weight of twenty-eight of them, the
rear wheels the remainder. The auto.
mobile has a carrying capactity of six
persons and is provided with four
folding seats, with an aisle between
them for easy access. The car can be
completely closed in by windows with
aluminium frames and is heated by
electricity. The vehicle is provided
with an ordinary hand brake and an
electrical brake, which enables the
driver to stop the car without a jerk
within a few feet.
One of the most interesting fea
tures of the vehicle are the numerous
little attachments which greatly in
creasse the ease and comfort of the
travellers. There are lamps for read
ing, a chronometer, an electric cigar
lighter, a stationary rack provided
with reading matter, letter paper ana
envelopes, a cardcase and ;! small
case for postage stamps. The reed
of the signal horn is protected from
dust by a fine screen, and c-very part
of the -delicate machinery is carefully
guarded from dust and dirt by rubber
curtains and screens of wire.
"THE BRIDES' LIMITED.*
Novelty in Trains on the Pennsylva
"The Brides' Limited" is the latest
in railway trains, says a Philadelphia
special to the New York World. It
is being run daily from Philadelphia
to New York by the Pennsylvania
railroad. It gets its name from th1
fact that not a day since the 1st ot
October has it failed to carry at least
one couple on their honeymoon.
The g2temen at the Broad street
station were the first to nMice that
No. ooo was being patronized by new
ly married people. They exchanged
experiences with the train crew, who
promptly decided to rechristen their
train. The yardmen were told of the
discovery, and now the Pullman mak

Hymen being used whenever availa

consequence. He says he has only

bride and bridegroom and begin to

on the floor near them.
BAKING HER HAND.
Novel and Severe Treatment For
To regain the use of her right hand
Miss Lucy O'Hara is having it bak
ed in 300 degrees of heat for half an
hour every other day in St. Vincent's
hospital, says the New York Herald.
Owing to the absence of moisture in
the high temperature the tissues are
able to withstand the high caloric
and the patient, although she winced
at first under the ordeal, is able to
undergo the treatment with little dis
She is about to win a year's battle
for the restoration of a member
which twice was to have been remov
ed. She has resolutely refused to
conseni to an amputation and the
physicians at the hospital say it will
ow be a question of only a few
eeks before her hand is almost if
ot quite as good as it ever was.
Miss O'Hara, who lives in Scran
,Pa., contracted septicaemia a
r ago through pricking her hand
~le washing clothes. The hand
led to twice its natural size and
several operations were necessary.
Surgeons believed the only means of
saving her life was by removing tht
hand. The poison was thrown out of
the system finally and the hand was
left shrunken. Miss O'Hara had
practically no control over it.
She was advised by her physician
to go to St. Vincent's hospital, where
the baking process is being success
fully used for rheumatism. The hand
is laid in a steam jacket and the tem
perature is gradually raised. Every
day the member is massaged for an
hour and every week the patient is
put under the influence of an anaes
thetic, the fingers are drawn out and
the bones and muscles subjected to a
New York Press.
Seated on a bench in Central park
a nurse girl was gently moving to
and fro a perambulator in which was
a baby of about fifteen months. At
the other end of the bench was a man
whose prominent lower jaw was
adorned with a luxuriant beard, which
parted in the middle and curved
gracefully outward ond upward.
For several minutes the baby re
garded the man and especially the
whiskers with grave attention, while
he looked at her with an air of lofty
condescension. At length a beautiful
smile overspread the little one's fea
tures. Then, with her blue eyes still
fixed upon the whiskers, and kicking
up her tiny feet in an ecstacy of de
light, she gurgled:
A wave of color suffused the man's
face above the whiskers, and he hitch
ed uneasily in his seat. It was an
awkward situation, and to relieve it
the nurse girl patted the baby and
"No, dearie, that isn't a doggie."
The man remained to hear no

This Husband Has It On Other Hus
Just as Mrs. John T. Wygant of
Hackensack. N. .J., was preparing to
go to her husband's funeral he call
ed her up over the telephone and
announced that inasmuch as he had
not yet shuffled off this mortal coil,
he objected to being buried. The
man was supposed to have been killed
in a railroad accident. With good
reason he is congratulating himself,
for the obituaries have told how "es
teemed and admired" he was by his
"hosts of friends" and he'haas also
been able to see just how his wife
looked in widow's weeds.
Gallows Haunts Them.
New Orleans Times-Democrat.
.That scaffold in the yard of the
parish prison seems to be causing
other people besides Capt. Rennyson
considerable annoyance. Recently
a well-known attorney went to the
parish prison and told Capt. Renny
son that he would like him to take
down the scaffold or remove it
where he could not see it from his
office window. The attorney has
an office in the Hennen building, and
it must be up very high for him to
see the scaffold. The instrument of
death is in the rear yard next to
the patrol house of the fi-st precinct
station. Yet the attorney said that
he is very much annoyed with it. It
is the first thing he sees when he
looks out of the window to get a
breath of pure, fresh air, and when
clients come in to see him they can't
talk for looking at the gallows. His
office boy never takes his eyes off
of it and cannot even hear the at
torney talk to him, his mind is so
concentrated on the scaffold.
When the attorney goes out of his
office and leaves it in charge of the
boy for just an hour, he returns to
find his office filled with visiting office
boys who are so placed that they can
not see it from their offices. The
boys discuss the gallows and bet on
whether or not the governor will sign
his death warrant or not to such an
extent that it is impossible to get
any work out of the office boys in
the Hennen building. For this rea
son the attorneys wants Capt. Renny
son to take it down or move it where
it cannot be seen from his office.
But Capt. Rennyson is afraid to take
it down now because the lumber is
green and if it has to remain down
long it will get out of shape and pds
sibly one would have to be built.
There is not much doubt that the
governor will not sign the death war
rants for Charles Foley and Moses D.
Lewis, for whom the scaffold is built,
until the latter part of the year.
Barney Oldfield, the crack auto
mobilist, is fond of pictures, particu
larly of etchings. He said the other
day, says the Baltimore American.
"The best etching I have is one
of the leaning tower of Pisa. This
etching hangs over my writing desk.
"Looking up one morning I no
ticed that the picture hung crooked.
I straightened it up and resumed
"The next day the picture was
again crooked, and the next day and
the next. Finally, happening to
be in the room while the maid was
cleaning, I saw her deliberately take
hold of the straight-hung picture and
tip it on one side."
"'Martha,' I said, 'that picture of
the tower-look how crooked you
have hun' git.' "
