The Indiana Novelty Manwfactnring
Company, of i lymonth, Ind., began in
lu:, the manufacture of wood rims, by
the iii vent ion of (ieo. V. Marble, of the
joint used in its one piece rims which
Consists of a series of tongues a hi
grooves formed in the ends of a smjjle
bent piece and interlocked, forming a
snug litt nig dovetail.
Th ? first rims were marketed in the
year and up to and Including the
month of June 1K5 over 700jOOO had
beeo sold. Though at Hist hard to in
troduce they become at once much
sought after when the merits of vv od
over iron as a material for bicycle i uns
were fully appreciated.
The method involved in tho bending
of the wood, as used by this com
pany is not new though it is done by
meam- employed at present in none of
the other lactones ol 'he kind. It con
sists simply of steaming the straight
piece and bending by steel bands over
au iron form and securely fastening.
It is t . en placed upon 'arge cars, each
with a capacity ol 960 runs, and placed
in the drying overis or kilns and allow-
ed to remain a sufficient time to
thoroughly dry. When removed from
this hot air it is taken to the joint saw
ing machines and t lie dovetailing and
glueing up performed. Tha application
of a clamp to the glued joint holds it
firmly in place while the glue ests and
after a few hours it is ready for the
forming or turning procesH.
This is done on especially designed
high speed let bee and at once taken to
the sanders. Here a change from a
rough surface rim tonne as smooth as
ass is done in a remarkably short tune
through the agency of a machine which
revolves the rim while l tie sand paper
nig is in progress.
As rims are ordered in various differ-
flit styks, finish and drillings the pro
cess from this point varies considerably.
Somj are allowed to be shipped in the
plain wood to be enameled by the bi-
oc- manufacturer while others are f,et runs along the north side of the
dulled especially for a certain number central main building. This is a ster

"(Joct. pure cream, ripe fruit, or the

ulated sugar, make yerfect ice cream."
writes Mr?. 8. T. Rorer in the Ladies"
Horn' .Journal. "Good ice cream can
not be made without a good freezer
one working easily with a side rank
sod a doable dasher. Scald half of the
cream ami dissolve in it the sugar.
This will prevent the cream from
churning to batter. When raw cream
is frozen it Ikis a frothy, snowy taste;
the taste of the flavoring is not promi
nent and it is neither smooth nor vel
vety in appearance. After the mix
ture is prepared, before turning it into
the freeslng can see that the latter is
'n good order. Adjust the dasher,
la.-ten on the crank and give it a turn
to see that it is all right. Remove
it for a moment, pour in the mixture

Snarl of coarse rock salt. Put a layer
of salt in the bottom of the tub. then
a layer of Ice about thrpe inches in
depth, another layer of salt, another
of ice and so on to the top of the can
Turn the crank slowly and steadily
until it begins to require force. If
the can is properly packed the cream
will require from fifteen to twenty
minutes to freeze. Cream frozen too
quickly is not smooth. The length of
time required depends entirely upon
thp packing, not upon the freezer. The
more salt is used, the less time will
be required for freezing; the more

A CHILD'S LONG JOURNEY.

word that any one understood, without
a single traveling companion, or with
out meeting a person who knew him.
from one end of the journey to the
other, is no small undertaking, but it
has just heu cuiupleted by an eight-year-old
boy. Magnus NesskW left a
pleasant home iu far away Finland on
June :i to join his father and mother
who are working at PowgtSS City. He
made this long voyage across the great
pond in the steerage of one of the big
ocean steamers. Here he was not so
lonely, as there were other Finlander
on the boat who talked the language
he could understand. At new York
there was no delay, owing to a careful
ly written shipping card, which had
been sewed securely on the back of his
coat before he started on the long
journey. This did away with the ne-;e.-sity
of talking as tar as getting
through without delay was concerned.
His tlckel had been purchased to cover
tue entire distance, and the card di
rected him to Circle City Hotel, at
Juneau. He reached Seattle in time to
make good connections with the Alas
ka boat, and was forwarded to Doug
las by friends. His father and mother
have not seen him since he was a
baby, over seen years ago, when they
left Finland to come to the United
States. Magnus is a well built boy,
with hair and eyes characteristic of his
ra e. He is exceptionally bright, and
has already picked some Rngllsh. H
made friends with everybody on the
steamer with whom he came in con
tact, although he could only talk to
them by signs
