How School Globes Are Made.
Terrestrial and celestial globes were
more thought of a few years ago as an.
educational ageDcy than they are to-day.
In the old-fashioned times it was regarded
as an "accomplishment" to know
" the use of the globes," and no young
lady's education was supposed to be
complete without such an attainment.
Nowadays the subject has dropped out
of our school prospectuses. Yet a good
many globes are still made, and it may
interest some of our readers to know how
such things are constructed.
The ordinary school globe seems like
a perfect and uniform production, as an
egg, without external joints, balanced as
to gravitation, smooth, perfeot.
It may have been a puzzle to many who
have poured over a globe in search of
information, to understand of what it
was composed and how it was made.
To fill all the items of this information
would require along article, but an idea
of the composition and making of globes
can be given in a few sentences. A globe
is, in reality, two hemipheres of paper.
The paper is thick, porous, and resembles
unpressed straw board. To form
the hemispheres a circular disc of this
thick yellow paper is cut into gores just
as one might take the peel from half an
orange and cut half a dozen- annular
pieces from it, an.d then press the edges
together until they met. That is what
is done in the globe manufactory ; but
the goring js done ,in a cutting
press by dies, so the work is not only
quickly done, but done with great, exactness.
This exactness is so minute that
when these gored disc3 are placed under
a press, with the best glue
on their edges, they come out perfect
half-spheres. Two of these are connected
by glue on the edges, after being
Btruhg on a wire that eventually form's
at its two ends, the north aud south
The globe thus formed and left to drv,
is in about as unfinished a state as this
now habitable one was before
and all the Ijost of extinct monsters put
in an appearance, and the human race
frightened itself with the high-sounding
Greek names. The embryo globe is a
dirty looking baH of dried paper. It is
rasped down with abrasive materials and
painted over with a hard finish that gives
it a surface like glass. Of course
thorough drying is necessary between
the manipulating processes.
An after polish prepares the globe
for its instructive surface. This is a
map of the world in twelve sections, of
a lozenge form, or, to be more familiar,
what the sections of a peel of orange
would be if cut into twelve pieces fiom
stem to bud. The sections are printed
on very thin .but very tough )aper, and
a narrow margin is left on the border,
afterwards pared by scissors. The
placing of these on the globe is hand
work entirely, and is done by women,
whose delicacy of touch and carefulness
of handling appear to be specially
adapted to such "puttering" work.
The operator takes one o these "gores"
in the fingers of the right hand, glues
the globe with a brush held in the left,
then carefully beginning at one pole
follows a parallel of longitude up to and
over the' equator to the north pole, rubbing,
as her fingers go, tile edges of the
paper to their place, and gradually
the paper over its entire surface
with an, 4yory .Bpafulit or folder..

single meridian, the shading of an islet,
nor the outline of a coast misplaced or
disturbed. This work is uot like the
transfer work on porcelain that so much
delights the modern resthetic eye, with
occasional breaks where the mandariu's
umbrella is separated as though he had
used it as a jointed rod in fishing, and
the fan of the oblique-eyed girl appears
to have become a Chinese paper butterfly,
and to have left the handle for an rerial
flight. The hand work on the school
globe requires very careful manipulation,
and every globe is a work of conscientious
But beyond this ivork of covering the '

Persons Who Lived In Three Centuries.
Three lives, all spent near Boston, and
literally overlapping each other, spanned
the period from the landing of the
Pilgrims in Massachusetts, in 1620, to
our own day. Ebenezer Cobb was born
in Plymouth, March 22, 3694, and died
in Kingston, December 8, 1803, aged
nearly 110 years. For the first ten years
of his life he was a contemporary of
Peregrine "White, the first white person
born in New England, and for the last
thirteen years of his life he was the contemporary
of Charles Sprague, the
banker-poet of Boston, who died in
1875. Mr. Cobb had the rare felicity of
living in ihree centuries. The same is
true of Francis Hafazoli, who was born
in Sardinia in 1587, and died in 1702,
and of Thomas Parr commonly called
"Old Parr," and who very properly
might have been called "Grand Parr."
He was born in Shropshire, in 1483, and
died in 1635, at the mature age of 152
years and nine months. His death was
hastened by' his being taken by the Earl
of Arundel to the Court of Charles L,
for exhibition. He married at the age
of 120 years, when he seemed to be in
perfect health, and cultivated the soil
until he was 130. There is no well authenticated
case of any one haying got
above Porr in the matter of age, though
Mrs. Lititia Cox, who died in Jamaica,
iii 1838, claimed to have been a young
woman wben Port Boyal was destroyed
by an earthquake, June 9, 1692, which
would have made her over 160.
To Sleep, Eat Onions.
I venture to suggest a new but simple
remedy for wane of sleep, says a man
who ha9 had experience. Opiates, in
an j' form, even the liquor opii scdat and
chloroform, will leave traces of their influence
next morning. I, therefore,
prescribe for myself and havo frequently
done so for others onions ;
simply common onions, raw, but Span
ish onions stewed will do. All know the
taste of onions ; this is due to a peculiar
essential oil contained in this most valuable
and healthy root. The oil has, I
am sure, highly soporific powers, In
my own case they .never fail. If I am
much pressed with work aud feel that I
shall not sleep, I eat two or three small
onions, and the effect is magical. Onions
are also ' excellent things to eat when
much exposed to intense cold. Finally,
if a person can not.pleep, it is because
the blood ie'in ,thfc brain, and not in the
stojbaach. The remedy, therefore, is' oh-'
vioug. tCall the blood down- from the
