NEW LAMP FOR MINERS.
It In l'rodilcd with n Gun UclccdnE
Attachment, IMnceil Junt AIioe
One of tho most practical Inventions
of tho last century was the miner's
lamp, with Its sheet of gauze sur
rounding tho flame, enabling the miner
to work In coal mines where gas vas
llablo to be found without danger of
causing an explosion with his light.
Ouo objection to such a lamp Is that
tho gas might lncrcaso In volume In
tho chamber so gradually that tho min
er would not bo awaro of its presence,
continuing to work with the assurance
that thero was no danger of an explo
sion and not delecting anything wrong
in the atmosphere. As an improve
ment over tho lamp a Pennsylvania in
ventor has suspended above the flame
a series of wires, which become heated
and grow red in proportion to their
distance from the blaze, and also in
ratio to tho quantity of gas mixed
with tho atmosphere. The operation
of tho device is apparent. The sensi
tive wires are adjusted on the harp to
positions determined by experiment, in
which they represent percentages of
gas present by becoming reddened with
the heat of tho lime. The user of

the lamp will, of course, be informed
of the danger limit, and when the
strands are heated to an umlsual or
dangerous height will abstain from
working In such gaseous quarters. It
is stated that this gas detector may
be easily attached to the lamps now in
use, and it should prove a very prac
tical arrangement for the men who are
compelled to labor in tho mines.
The Violet Mijlit Cure.
In the curious light cure of Dr. W. J.
Morton, violet light Is produced in the
body itself. A quinine solution of the
strength of ono grain to eight ounces,
shows a beautiful violet fluorescence un
der the X-rays, and as a 20-grain dose
of quinine would probably cause the ten
pounds of blood In the body to become
a solution of similar strength, it is as
sumed that the blood would light up in
a like way. The quinine, in a dose of
ftve to twenty grains, is administered
ait hour before the X-ray treatment.
The violet radiations are credited with
curative properties, and Dr. Morton
thinks that In cancer, which he has
treated more than a year, he has ob
tained results -that could not be reached
by the X-rays alone.

WITH the aid of tho accompanying chart, a little observation of tho
northern heavens will enable star gazers without glasses to detect tho
tenuous body of Dorelll's comet, glittering In tho vicinity of the con
stellation Cygnus. This now visitor of tho solar system will bo found, ac
cording to the Lick Observatory astronomers, about six degrees southwest
of (he bright star Alpha Cygnl tho brightest and most northern member of
this constellation of a star of the first magnitude.
Tho constellation, popularly known as Tho Swan, lies not far to tho east
of Vega also a first magnitude star, and about twlco as far almost directly
south of tho familiar and conspicuous Polo star. Tho new comet was visible
with tho naked eyo when tho observations reported woro made at tho Lick
Observatory a few weeks ago.
As it is speeding on its parabolic path with enormous velocity toward ths
sun under whoso fiorco ratllntion of heat its two prominont toils aro very
ranldly swelling In size, tho celestial wanderer ought to bo easily recognized,
mid it may very soon become, as Prof. Campbell oxpects, "the brightest comet
of the past ton years."
Tho two prominont tails, alread observable in tho comet, will no doubt
rrow possibly into startling proportions, before tho cqmot reaches a
perihelion, which it will do In August, but when it leaves the color cystora
and plunges again Into tho cold depths of spaco these striking appendages

purpose, and yet without discomfort
when constantly worn. Tho spiral
form which the tube is given enables
tho wearer to suspend it around his

it takc3 but a short time to.inflate tho

which is provided with a valve to

Perfume! front Klfnvern.
A common method of extracting per
fumes from flowers is enfleurage, which
consists In placing the blossoms In con
tact with purified lard for a few days.
When saturated with the perfume, tho
lard Itself may be used, or the essential
oil may be extracted under strong alco
hol. Tho process being tedious, many
attempts mostly unsatisfactory have
been made to obtain the essential oil di
rect from the flowers by means of light
petroleum. A curious recent discovery
Is that perfume-making still goes on In
tho flowers during enfleurage, and Dr.
Albert Hesse reports that a ton of tube
rose blossoms only yielded CO grams
of oil by petroleum extraction, but gave
up S01 grams to the embedding fat in
enfleurage and yielded 78 grams more
when the faded blossoms were distilled.
The flowers appear to have contained
more perfume after exhaustion by en
fleurage than when first gathered.
Evil niTccta of Alcohol.
A municipal committee of Glasgow,
Scotland, appointed to determine the ef

Increase of insanity, reports that out of
505 admissions to the Glasgow district
asylum and 213 admissions to the poor
house, 33 per cent, were traceable to
alcoholic drinks as a cause. In tho
United States 10 to 12 per cent, of in
sanity is from drink.

FARM DAIRY CHEESE.
Department of AKrlcultnrr Ik Trying
to Develop Itn Mnuufucture
nu Lnrfrcr Settle.
There is a popular Impression that
tho manufacture of checso In this
country has been so completely trans
ferred to tho factory system during
tho last half century, as practically to
abolish cheese-making on dairy farms.
But the agricultural returns of tho
twelfth United StateB census show
that in tho year 1890 thero were still
15,070 farms upon which dairy chceso
was made. The quantity produced on
these farms during that year was 16,
372,330 pounds, an average of 1,015
pounds per farm. This product con
stituted almost five and one-half per

tin No. ICG, "Cheese Making on tho
Farm," to furnish for the farm house
hold a brief description of tho most
approved methods used In tho manu
facture of several varieties of cheese.
Details of management, which nre
briefly and plainly described, include
aeration and cooling, coloring, the uso
of rennet, curdling, cutting, cooking,
molding, pressing, dressing, salting
and curing. Tho operation of press
ing Is explained as follows: The press
may be a slmplo lever and weight, de
scribed as follows: The lever should
be about 12 feet long. A broken
wagon tongue answers the purpose
very well. Set a strong box on which
the mold may be placed, about three
feet from a wall, post or tree. On tho
latter nail a slat and under It put ono
end of the lever. Put a circular
board about six inches in diameter
upon the mold, and on this rest tho
stick or lever. A pall containing a
few cobblestones will answer for tho
weight Do not apply full pressure
at first, but let the weight hang about
half-way between the mold and the
outer end of the stick. Let tho
cheese remain a few hours In tho
press, then take out and dress.
The ordinary process by which our
American cheese Is made in factories
is not applicable to the farm dairy,
because it takes too much time and
is so complicated that it requires
years of practice to become familiar
with the varying conditions in which
milk comes to the vat. The various
changes that take place in milk, and
which aro troublesome In making
cheese, nearly all develop In tho
night's milk, kept over until tho fol
lowing morning. So, if milk is made
into cheese Immediately after it Is
drawn, no difficulty need be experi
enced. By employing a simple and
short method of manufacture, anyone
at all accustomed to handing milk
can, with the appliances found In any
well-regulated farmhouse, make uni
formly a good cheese.
CALVES FOR MARKET.
FoIIotv the Direction)! Here Given
mid You Will lict n Fair Trice
lor Your Veal,
Calves from three to six weeks old,
nnd weighing about 100 pounds, or say
from 80 to 120 pounds, aro tho most
desirable weights for shipment. Tho
head should bo cut out, so as to leave
the hide of the head on tho skin. The
legs should be cut off at the knee Joint.
The entrails should bo all removed, ex
cepting the kidneys, the liver, lights and
heart should be taken out. Cut the car
cass open from tho neck through tho
entire length from head to tall. If
this is done they aro not so apt to sour
and spoil during hot weather. Many a
fine carcass has spoiled in hot weather
because of its not being cut open. Don't
wash the carcass out with water, but
wipe out with a dry cloth. Don't ship
until tho animal heat is entirely, out of
tho body, and never tie the carcass up
In a bag, as this keeps tho air from cir
culating and makes tho meat moro lla
blo to become tainted. Mark for ship
ment by fastening a shipping tag to tho
hind leg. Calves under CO pounds
should not be shipped, and are llablo to
be condemned by the health officers as
being unfit for food. Merchants, too,
nre liable to bo fined if found selling
these "slunks"' for violation of the law.
Very heavy calves, such as havo been
fed on buttermilk, never sell well in our
market they aro neither veal nor beet,

PROGRESS IN FLORIDA.
Lawn Pnmiril by I.eRlalnturc llevot
lnir I.nrtro SuniH to the Ilnllil-
Inir of Honda.
In no state of tho union Is thero
greater enthusiasm among the pcoplo
for building good roads than in Florida,
and In no state has more good legisla
tion favorable to road Improvement been,
enacted during tho past year. The leg
islature which recently adjourned en
acted several general road laws. Their
general purport can be gathered from
tho following brief statement by Senator
A. S. Mann, who Is stato organizer for tho
Florida Good-Roads association:
"Tho general public at first glance will
not be preparedto grasp the Importance
of the present good roads laws. Tho act
giving tho Internal improvement fund
to good roads alono In Its entirety in
lands and money bequeaths to the cause
not less than ten or fifteen million of dol
lars. In Florid, where material Is
abundant and cheap with little or no
expensive cuts or fills to make and sand
as a foundation Insuring perfect drain
ago or rcadbed, an immense amount of
work can be done on this fund alone;
but couple with this the convict money,
one-half of which goes into the general
revenue fund of each county, and may be
used on roads if the county commission
ers so wish, and the levy of a three-mill
tax on all values for same purpose, and
nil will see that the power to make good
roads has been given without stint."
Another act of the highest importance
sets aside for purposes of road improve
ment tho Indian war claims, the payment
of which has been authorized by con
gress. From this alono the state will
realize over half a million dollars.
It is an interesting fact that the aver
age swamp land fund and the Indian
war claims fund both come to the state
from the national government; and now
that the legislature has decided to use
them for road building they are virtually
national aid to road improvement. Tho
swamp lands were granted to the state
by congress about the middle of the last
century. A large part of the lands havo
since been sold or donated to promoto
.railroads and other internal improve
ments, but there are still many millions
of acres of valuable land from which an
immense fund can be derived, all of
which is to be used for road building.
The roads are not to bo built by the state,
but by the counties, each of which will
draw from these funds in proportion to
the total assessed value of its property.
This Is not all the road legislation tho
good roads advocates of Florida want.
A large and enthusiastic state good roads
convention was held at Gainesville in
July. Resolutions were adopted de
manding the employment of convicts in
road building; urging Joint action of
counties in building through lines of
roads across the state in all directions;
pledging support to candidates for of
fice who will work for good roads; de
claring for cooperation with the Na
tional Good Roads association in tho
work of organization; and demanding
that the national government aid the
states In the great work of building good
roads throughout the country.

Renovated IluUcr MunIiichh.
Although renovated butter is an im
provement over its ancestors, tho
thought of eating tho rancid putrid
greaso which has only been well laun
dered, Is not a pleasant one. Removing
the smell aud taste from "stock" which
is found in most country groceries, in a
barrel in the rear, puts a premium upon
bad farm butter. In ono respect, It
seems to bo a good thing, as it affords
an outlot for tho rank, cheesy, mottled,
greasy stuff sent to town by the care
less, lgnornnt and uncleanly farmer.
But that very farmer is the main loser.

causo tho milk last drawn is tho richest,
but that cows may bo made to main

are taken at each milking. This is a
matter of great importance to the dairy
man, as it determines tho profit or losa
of ills business. A poor man cannot af
ford to keep a poor cow.
