In regard to German high speed
experiments the Electrical Review
says that although the results of the
Gossen high speed tests showed that
tne track was the weak part of the
installation, it is stated that the Ger
man engineers are now getting ready
a steam locomotive for similar experi
ments on the same track. This
would seem to involve a good deal of
unnecessary trouble. The track was
found unsuitable and did not even
permit a thorough test of the electric
locomotive. Instead of laying down
a better track and continuing the
work so well begun, says the Re
view, they are building a special
steam locomotive and will see what
can be accomplished with this on a
track known to be unsafe for speeds,
but a little in excess of those now
ined on standard steam roads.
The results of these tests with steam
can hardly be expected to repay the
trouble and expense of making them.
Baffin Land Survey.
Dr. Robert Bell of the Canadian
Geological Survey, has been engaged
in making a geological survey on Baf

it the largest island in the world, ex
cepting Australia and Greenland.
Screen to Protect the Face.
The discomfort occasioned by *the
hair falling on the face as it is being
cut from the head by the barber is an
unpleasant experience, which the
majority of men are called upon -o
pass through at frequent intervals,
and it has occurred to a German in
ventor that the annoyance could
easily be done away with by provid
ing some sort of a face screen to
catch the cuttings as they are clipped
from the head. How the idea has
been carried out is shown in the ac
companying drawing, the device con
sisting of a screen to protect the
face, together with a trough to pre
vent the hair from falling on the
clothing. The device is preferably
transplarent, in order that the custom
er's view may not be obstructed,
For Use in Cutting or Shampooing
and it may be made out of celluloid,
gelatin paper, waxed linen or glass.
The uipper edge of the screen is
adapted to fit snugly around the fore
head, for the purpose of preventing
anything from passing underneath,
and this enables it to be used in
shampooing the hair to catch the
water and lather which might other
wise run down the face. The pincipal
advantage of thi. arrangement in
practical use is the greater freedom
it gives the barber in his work, thus
saving time for his customer and him
self. The inventor is Maximilian Gal
ley of Hanover, Germany.
New Kind of Nickel Steel.
Metallurgists have long been aware
that the addition oL a certain percent
age of nickel to harden steel makes
an alloy of especial hardness. Advan
tage is taken of that discovery in the
manufacture of armor plate for war
vessels. Nickel steel possesses other
well known virtues, such as suscepti
ullity to high polish and a loss of cor
roelbility. A Frenchman named Gull
laumy now declares that he has found
a new trait of much importance. He
says that he gets rid of expansion
with temperature, thus adapting his
alloy to many useful purposes, such

Shoe Horn With Clamp Attachment.
'he shoe horn is an almost ipdis
pensable article to persons who are
wearing low shoes in the summer
time, as it is next to impossible to
make the shoe conform to the shape
of the heel and still be large enough
to pull on freely. Witn a horn of the
ordinary construction it is necessary
to press the shoe against the floor or
other surface to aid in forcing the root
into it. George Schneider of Balti
more, Md., has ju"t patented a shoe
horn having the prime advantage of
enabling the user to stand in an up
right position while putting on his
snoes. The improvement consists in
mounting a gripping jaw pivotally on
a lug on the convex face of the horn,
with a lever pivoted on a second lug
to close the jaw and clamp the
leather tightly when the end of the
horn and the lever are grasped in the
hand. The face of the jaw is covered
with corrugated rubber, which affords
a firm grasp without injury to the
leather. With the clamp in position
and being gripped by the hand, a pull
on the two members will draw the
shoe on the foot without pressing iI
against any surface.
Electrically Preserved Wood.
SThe Praktischer Mlaschinencon
structeur describes a method of pre
serving woods by electricity, which
is applicable not only to railway ties,
telegraph poles and the like. but also
to fine woods used in making furni
ture. The apparatus employed com
prises essentially a wooden trough
filleu with a solution of borax, resin
and sodium carbonate, and under the
influence of an electric current the
sap of the wood exudes and rises to
the surface of the bath, its place
being taken by the preserving solu
tion. After five or eight hours of
this treatment, the wood is removed
and dried, either in the open air or
in a drying oven.
New College Course.
One of the New England colleges
has recently establ.shed what is
called a School of Administration and
Finance. Its purpose is to give young
men such instruction as will silence

course has been fixed at two years,
and has for its prir.cipal topics pri
vate banking, brokerage and invest
ment, railroad and steamship service
and foreign trade. There is also in
struction in the general principles of
manufacturing and the relations be
tween employer and employed. Jour

Coin-Operated Hair Brush.
While tile illustration below does
not give an adeqrluate idlea of the ap
pearance of the rotary hair brush
recently patented by Clarence M.
'Stiner of New York city. yet there is
enough ldetail shown to explain the
mechanism which controls the rota
tion of the brush wheels. In carrying
out the invention thie bristles are
radially attached to hubs to form
wheels and the wheels are intercon
nected by gearing, which can be ro
tated to a limited extent upon the in
sertion of a coin and the subsequent
manipulation of the lever to bring
trash surfaces into position to be
used, while carrying the previously
used bristles into the casing. As
will be seen, a casing surrounds tilhe
brush wheels on nearly all sides, leav
ing only one surface exposed. At the
rear of this casing and in conjunction
with the handlle is the actuating me
chanism, consisting of a hinged plate
carrying a coin tubeh and a pivoted
lever, the latter extending through a
slot to be actuated by the thumb
When,a coin is inserted in the tube
it comes in contact with the lever
and releases the mechanism, allowing
tne hinged plate to be depressed. As
the plate carries a lever in conjunction
with a toothed wheel mounted on
the hub of the first brush i't obvious

Some of the newest gowns combine
the empire and the modern style, so
arranged as to produce a most har
monious effect. This is particularly
true of the new redingotes designed
to be worn over light underdresses.
The backs of such redingotes are
empire in form, while the front sug
gests a modernized Louis XVI. Last
season was remarkable for the number
of mousselines ornamented with hand
painted designs. This year, and par
ticularly just at present, delicately

are the novelty of novelties. The bo

Perfumed Writing Paper.
I have just learned a most clever
way of perfuming one's writing paper,
which every fashionable woman
wants to have suggest a delicate frag
rance. The same method, I find, is
excellent for handkerchiefs and veils,
and even gloves, at the same time
pr-.serving them admirably. A thick I
blotting pad is all that is required, all
the blotting paper of which has been
carefully moistened with one's favor
ite perfume and allowed to dry. Then
ore's letter paper, one's veils, hand
kerchiefs, and gloves are slipped in
between the pages, from which is
transmitted a most delicate odor. It
is not necessary to have a large pad,
as to preserve the fragrance it should
be kept in an air tight box, and one
may even use several of the small
square pads, one for each article, and
S.aich fit in any box.
One of the new fancies are rasp
berry reds in pale tones, in dotted
swiss and batiste and are considered
extremely smart for forenoon wear.
Tney are almost invariably trimmed
with black laces marked over with
white floss and just a little gold
thread, and are transparently inset
in long lines upon the skirt and bod
ice. The effect over white silk under
drapery is most delightful. Black
lace hats and roses to match, or, a
wreath of raspberries with foliage,
are a charming harmony, and as this
color has not been hackneyed it car
ries a decided eclat. Geranium red
hats and parasols add great possibili
ties to the pongee, biscuit and white
Casino gowns, making them more
sought after than ever.

The Gloves of 1902.
Gloves are shorter than they were,
for general wear. The ones with two
buttons, and even the one-button
length for the long sleeves, and with
the preference in favor of the wash
kind-more expensive to start, but,
as their name implies, capable of be
ing constantly kept clean. There are,
to wear with elbow sleeves, which
still continue in favor, long gloves of
glace or Suede in all the light colors.
White is preferred, athough with a
light gray gown or a very light tan it
is a fad of this season to have the
gloves of the same shade. To wear

A New Afternoon Tea Fad.
A new idea for 5 o'clock tea is to
drop three or four whole cloves into
each cup just before pouring in the
hot tea, and leaving them there for a
moment that the essential oil may be
extracted. The tea may be served
with the cloves in it, or, if one is fas
tidious about its appearance, the one
cup may be poured into another
through the silver strainer, and the
cloves removed. Sliced lemon is to
be used with this tea, and the ming
ling of the flavors is really delicious.
