At this season of the year bioe is
reminded of the annual contest waged
against growing Vegetation to preserve
railway tracks in clean condition. Es
pecially is this true of the dirt-bale
lasted tracks in the westerl htates,
where the epp-anse fittailed in keeping
veetation down by grubbing with a
shovel is a formidable figure, com
pared with the expense of the same
work where tracks art ballasted with
a good quality of gravel. For many
years Western roads have resorted to
lumerous experiments for killing veg=
etation, with machinery, the most
successful of which has been the
scheme of subjecting it to scorching
heat produced by burning crude pe
troleum under a shield carried a few
inches above the track. Machines of
this description are used on the Chi
cago, Milwaukee & St. Paul; Atchi
son, Topeka & Santa Fe and Chicago
Great Western roads. In the construe.
tlon of this weed burner use is made
of an ordinary flat car, on the front
end of which (as it runs in service) is
mounted an upright thirty-horse-pow
er boiler and a pair of engines. By
means of sprocket chain connection
between the engine shaft and car axle
the car is made self-propelling. After
some experience it was found neces
sary to connect the second axle of the
truck with the first, or that driven by
the engine, by means of a sprocket
chain, in order to overcome slipping
due to the lopping of long weeds over
the rails. By this means of locomo
tion a speed of from ten to twelve
miles per hour lis easily made, as
when running for stations to meet
passing trains. The water supply for
the boiler and for extlagu:shing fires,
which may be set accidentally, is car
ried in a wooden tank in the center
of the car. On top of this tank there
are two air reservoirs, and inside of
the forward cab there are two air
pumps for creating the air pressure
necessary to spray the oil into the
burners. The burner rigging is sus
pended from a rear platform, built
upon four T-rails. The shield and
burners are hung from the outer end
of this platform upon bell cranks, and
an old reverse lever and quadrant are
used to adjust the burners to the de
sired height from the rail. The burn
ers are easily taken down when it is
desired to couple the car in with a
train. The oil tank for supplying oil
to the burners is located inside the
rear cab or just in rear of the water

yoke is smooth and faced into the lin

A eancy of the Time.
Small black rings figure the surface
of a cranberry crimson foulard gown
for late afternoon or evening wear.
The skirt has a front gore laid in fine
tucks and circular sides, with a border
of three tucks, which go around the
skirt. The corsage has a jabot front
of shiny black Spanish lace. Deep
points of Spanish lace are ap-liqued
in the bodice in front and in back.
The sleeve is in two parts, a close
fitting upper of crim'.on foulard, and
beneath it is an undersleeve of black
lace over crimson chiffon The neck
band is extremely plain and books in
the middle at the back.
Flowered Silk Traits.
Violets, tiny rosebuds, buttercups
and asters, lightly printed upon white
glace silk, form a remarkably pretty
trimming for a white Swiss muslin
gown. The silk is measured off and
cut into bias bands. It does not mat
ter if the stem of a rosebud or a vio
let bead is missing, clipped, away by
the bias-cut of the sharp scissors. The
bands are applied as a beading to a
founce or simply up and down in ma
chine-stitched bands. The yellow and
violet fowers are especially pretty
used this way,

Autumn Dress For a Girl.
Charming and attractive as guinlpe
gowns unquestionably are, every
mother realizes the utility of the model
that can be made of one material, and
that does not inevitably involve the
dainty yoke and sleeves that must be
laundered after each day's wear. The
very pretty and stylish May Manton
design shown has the merit of allow
ing the guimpe, when desired, and of
being equally available for the long,
snug sleeves and for low-neck and tie
short puffed sleeves, as occasion may deu
require. Made of one material, as il- le
lustrated, it is suitable for daily after- du
noon wear or for a street costume L
when the days begin to grow cool; UI
with a guimpe of white, or with low to
neck and puffed sleeves it becomes in8
suitable for dancing school and party RI4
wear. The deep pointed collar, which del
is a feature, may also be varied and sht

SUCKED THE BOTTLE.

Artfaeial teem of Nmsing.
I owned some young elephants which
I had lent to a showman on the Bow
ery. On going to see them one day
I noticed a man holding his fnger in
the mouth of one of the smaller ones.
J placed my finger in the mouth of an
other and found that the creature
seemed to derive pleasure from the ac
tion of sucking. Immediately I sent
out for an ordinary infant's nursing
bottle. The young elephant drained
the bottle as if "to the manner born."
It was passed from one to another of
the infant class. Finally they fought t
in the most indescribably comical man
ner for possession of the bottle. Then
I fitted a large glass jar, holding a f
gallon, with rubber tubes, so that all t
could use it at the same time. In- I
variably they would empty this bottle
before loosening their hold on the nip- a
ples. They had doubtless been taken t
from their mother when too young, or r
perhaps she had been killed at the t
time when the young were captured. (
So effectively did they appeal to public v
interest and sentiment that by dint of f
skillful advertising the celebrated v
"sucking baby elephants" made quite s
a fortune in a single season. They
would be led into the ring, where they a
would take their nourishment like c
human babies, their overgrown size r
making this infantile operation very a
comical and absurd. The sight capti- c
vated the heart of every woman who t
attended the show.-Saturday Evening
Congress desired the experiment of t
rural free-mail delivery to be thor- ci
oughly tested and to that end author- (
ized the postoflce department to make
trials in different parts of the country.
First Assistant Postmaster General a
Heath, in his report recently made pub
lic, gives the results of these experi
mnents. He says trials have been made
in all sorts and conditions of rural life. l
The experiments have covered twenty. bl
nine States and forty-four different
routes. They have not been confined T
to communities where- conditions fa- a
vored the success of the plan to the
utmost, but mail has been carried over
the mountains of Arkansas, through bi
the heavy roads of Central Illinois, p
along the rough banks of the Missouri
river in Kansas, through the unsurvey- .g
ed and roadless farming districts of
Southwest Kentucky, over the hills and
through the snow-filled crossroads of C;
Michigan and among the scattered col- se
ored settlements of Virginia. Com- gi:
menting on these experiments, the
First Assistant Postmaster General fa
says: "According to the varying con
ditions of the country traversed, the
rural carriers perform their services on
horseback or riding in buckboards, bug- $1
gles, two-wheeled carts, or on bicycles. Pe
In some States they have to cross farms I
and pull down bars and ride over fields m
to deliver and collect their mails. In
no instance has any serious complaint
been made of this invasion of private n
rights. On the contrary, the co-opera- .
tion of the communities served has in
every instance been cheerfully and ef
fectively given. The farmers, at their no
own cost, have put up boxes at the no
crossroads and at All other convenient
places for the reception of the mails. T.
The general results obtained have been ne
so satisfactory as to suggest the feasi
bility of making rural delivery a per- ,s
manent feature of postal administra- he
tion in the United States, not immedi
ately or in all districts at once, but in of
some gradual and graduated form." Ti
After the successful experiments in this
ljne Congress should not delay longer te
the establishment of rural free delivery m
in the communities best suited for the w
immediate introduction of this system.
The contrast between the old frigate u

anniversary, must have been most im
pressive. But though even in her best
days she could have been sunk with (
a single shot from one of the big guns
they carry, she has a record of glory
which they have yet to earn. What
we may hope and believe is that, in our
navy of to-day there are worthy suc
cessors of Hull, Bainbridge, Stewart,
and the sailors that gave to the Con
stitution her immortal renown. Now
that this famous centenarian has pass
ed the anniversary of her launching,
we trust that she will continue to be
cared for, with the single purpose of
preserving her as long as possible to
posterity as a monument of heroic days.

but thoroughly and keep them dclean with CASCARETS Candy Cathartic. Be sure you get
the genuine. CASCARETS are never sold in bulk. Look for the trade-mark, the long-tailed

for iae. I recommend it to all my friends."
