1837-9, following the suspension of

MACHINE THAT BLOWS GLASS
American Engineer Said to Have In
vented Really Practical Labor
Common, ordinary window glass is
one of the few industrial products of
which the method of making has prac
tically remained stationary.
From, time to time attempts have
been made to use mechanicaJ appara
tus for blowing the glass, but the re
sults have been unsatisfactory and the
old method has persisted.
The workman blows a cylinder of
glass, which is then split open length
wise and carried to a furnace, where
it opens out under the influence of the
heat. A slow process, consequently
expensive, and above all injurious to
the health of the blowers.
Now an American engineer has just
invented a simple machine for which,
when certain difficulties are overcome,
great success is hoped. The glass is
made like paper, then a. sheet of the
paste is drawn vertically from the tub,
and this a horizontal cylinder carries
over an endless table, then into an an
nealing furnace, from which comes
forth an uninterrupted band of glass,
that can be cut off in desired lengths.
One of the greatest difficulties in
this method is to prevent the glass
paste from growing thinner by its own
weight as it is drawn from the tub.
This problem has been solved by plac
ing in the tub two,balls that rotate
rapidly from the bottom to the top,
which has the eftect of continually
drawing masses of glass towards the
top, thus counteracting the tendency
to string down and contract.
With this new method a single fur
nace can produce 12 tons of glass
every 24 hours, and all its service re
quires is a watchman, a cutter and'two
boys to take away the pdnes.
By the present method of blowing,
it would take 24 men to produce the
Economic Move of Railroads.
A novel move has been made by
railroads in New England in the trans.
portation of the potato crop from
Maine to the west. The refrigerator
cars which reach Boston with beef
are not returned empty noW, but are
sent to Maine, where they are loaded
with potatoes. A new plan of heat
ing the chrs is used so that the prod
ucts reach tjeir destination without
any ill effects of the weather. Instead
of stoves and men to handle the fires
while the cars are traveling, the cars
are now heated with a charcoal fire
shortly after being loaded. When a
certain temperature is reached the
fire is removed and the cars are closed
and sealed, r~a ifii the heat to the
end of their Journey.
Earthquakes and Bridges.
The 'damage to bridges by earth
quakes is due generally to the banks

quakes in the United States, India and
Japan, extending back to 1886. More
over, it seems to- be the general rule
that a fisure or a series of parallel fis

Second Wife Has Put on File Accurate
Record of "Mother's" Pos.
An Atchison woman who married a
widower, and who is wise beyond her
time, has filed a most peculiar docu
ment in the courts. It is to this ef
fect: "My husband's first wife left
two petticoats of cotton, and one of
wool, all badly worn; one old corset,
two pairs of hose, two house dresses,
three shirt waists, one dress skirt, a
thin gold ring, a hair switch, a gold
breastpin, one pair of house slippers
and a winter coat. I have had them
carefully itemized and sworn to be
fore a notary and they now lie sealed
in the attic of our home. This docu
ment goes on record to forestall any
further litigation from my step-chil
dren for the possession of 'mother's
things.' If at any time they want
'mother's things' I will be glad to turn
the sealed box over to them."--Lin

Don't Poison Baby.
FORTY YEARS AGO almost every mother thought her child must have
PAREGORIC or laudanum to make it sleep. These drugs will produce
sleep, and A FEW DROPS TOO MANY will produce the SLEEP FROM WHICH
THERE IS NO WAKING. Many are the children who have been killed or
whose health has been ruined for life by paregoric, laudanum and morphine, each
of which is a narcotic product of opium. Druggists are prohibited from selling
either of the narcotics named to children at all, or to anybody without labelling
them "poison." The definition of "narcotic" is: ".4 medicine which relieves paim
and produces sleep, but which in poisonous doses produces stupor, coma, convul
sions and.death." The taste and smell of medicines containing opbm are disguised,
and sold under the names of "Drops," "Cordials," "Soothing Syrups," etc. You
should not permit any medicine to be given to your children without you or
your physician know of what it is composed. CASTORIA DOES NOT CON
TAIN NARCOTICS, if it bears the signature of Chas. Fletcher.
