How Gold Pens Are Made.
Metallic iridium, used so extensively
for the points of gold pens, is made
from the powder obtained in the wet
way from platinum ore by heating to a
high beat in a sand crucible and then
adding stick phosphorus. The iridium,
which cannot be melted alone, is thus
fused in the form of an iridium phos
phide. To remove the phosphorus the
phosphide is heated with lime, and the
iridium is left in the form of a hard
white mass. It is now so hard that it
cannot be filed or cut and is broken up
into small pieces for soldering to the
points of gold pens. These small pieces
are ground to the right size on a copper
disk wheel with emery or carborun
dum. It is said that an ounce of irid
ium will make from 5,000 to 10.000
en points. . It h:u also been found
that the iridium thus prepared is prac
tically as hard as the ruby. No steel
tools can make any impression upon it.
At one time much less expensive than
platinum, iridium now is worth more
on account of the demand for hard plat
inum, in which the Iridium is the
hardening agent.-New York Press.
Many furniture casters are made of
leather, disks of the required size being
cut oit and cemented and compressed
to form the wheel. The wheel is then
put into a lathe and turned rounding
on Its face. Disks of metal are clamped
on each side of the wheel to serve as
bearings for the axle that runs through
the wheel. Such casters are made for
use on hardwood floors. Casters of
compressed felt are also designed for
this purpose. Among other styles of
casters may be mentioned those of
glass, designed to serve for purposes of
insulation, and ball bearing casters,
one style showing no wheel, but in
stead a ball which, when the furniture
is moved, revolves on a circle of small
er balls wIthin the caster fitting. Then,
too, there are caster wheels made of
porcelain and of rubber, of lignum
vitae and other hard] woods. Great
numbers of casters are of iron and

Thackeray was much pestered by the
autograph hunter, says Hodder in his
"Recollections." He disliked above all
things to write in an autograph album
and often refused those who asked him
to do so. sometimes rather brusquely.
On one occasion the owner of an al
bum, a young lady, was fortunate

in order to look it over. Written on a

The hotel in Trinidad is the antithe
sis of the bustle of the port and the de
lirium of the drive. An old darky in
faded livery. "Methuselah," totters out
and looks at you. Coolly clad figures in
rocking chairs on the porch meditative
ly absorb their drinks without even
doing that. After a time a clerk ap
pears and you sign the register. A
while later a black boy comes and lifts
your luggage from the motor. After a
little longer Interval the manager has
beached the point of taking you for a
long, slow, rambling walk, which leads
at length to the room that is reserved.
It is a.huge chamber, half as large as
a tennis court . A wicker couch, two
big cane arm chairs, two tables, a gi
gantic bed and a chest of drawers con
stitute the furniture. The doors. the
window shades and the walls for two
feet down from the ceiling are lattice
work. open to all the winds- that blow.
A door in front opens into the garden
facing the savanna. In the courtyard
behind tame white aigrets step daintily
among the palms, and a parrot and
toucan screech to each other from ad
joining cages. On one side is.a row of
sheds containing huge bathtubs.

Barnum's First Show Venture..
P. T. Barnum launched his career in
the show business by exhibiting a re
markable negro woman, believed to be
100 years old and said to have been a
nurse to George Washington. An old
bill of sale was eehibited. properly
dated, concerning Joyce Heth, then
aged fifty-four years, and evidence was
also furnished that she was nurse to
George Washington. Everything seem
ed so straightforward to the young
man that he was eager to become the
proprietor of this novel exhibition,
which he purchased for $1,000, $500 of
which he paid down, selling out his in
terest in the grocery business, and the
other $500 he borrowed. He saw that
the thing to do was to make people
talk and become curious and excited
ever rare spectacles.: Regardless of ex
pense he advertised in New York. Bos
ton and Philadelphia. and the halls
were thronged until Joyce Heth died.
The Best Security.
What security is there best suited to
"the average man" possessing (1) safe
ty. (2) stability, (3) profit and (4) con
vertibIlity? Traveling in a circle, we
come back to our original point of de
parture-real estate. First mortgage
bonds based on the highest class of im
proved. income producing real estate
in a large city with a large margin of
safety and an absolute first lien return
ing 5,-5% and G per cent on the invest
ment are to my mind the ideal invest
ment for "the average man" and in
eed for all others. A century or two
ago real estate first mortgages were
the only safe investment. The first
mortgage real estate bond is simply
the modern form of the real estate
mortgage. equally safe and far more
:onvenient and convertible. If one can
not or does not wish to own real estate
be may at least own bonds based on it.

A Comb In the Claw.
Many btrds possess a useful comb in
the claw of the middle toe of the foot.
rhis has been noticed in owls, night
ars, herons, bitterns, cormorants, gan
:ets etc. It has been explained as a
neas of holding the prey securely.
he comb is sometimes replaced by a
urved blade with teeth, which run
iong the inneir side of the claw. Such
tblade is found in razorbills, wild
lucks, gulls, starlings and many other
irds. Where a comb is required the
nner edge of this blade becomes di
ided into teeth. Young nlghtjars or
oatsuckers have only the blade, but
ld ones have a well developed comb.
