This portrait of Miss Anthony was engraved from a photograph taken
on February 1.1, PtO."., her eighty-third birthday anniversary, at her home, 17
Madison stree, Rochester, N. Y. Miss Anthony was born In Adams, Mass.,
tho daughter of Daniel and Lucy (Head) Anthony. She was educated in a
school maintained by her father for his own and neighboring children. Later
she became a student at Quaker Hoarding School, West Philadelphia, and
at fifteen began teaching. Fifteen years she taught, and In 1S."(2 she began
Lor splendid career as a temperance, anti-slavery and woman's lights or
ganizer. Since th;1 Civil War she has given her whole 'lino to the suffrage!

In the curliest np's of man there
were wild horses on all the continents,
but probably on none of the Islands,
such as Australia. They differed from
. ' "
:y ';:M"y, '
modern horses In having shorter skulls
ami deeper jaws. Their legs also wore
shorter and their foot smaller In pro
portion to their bodies. They resembled
overgrown zebras. The quarries con
taining their remains are so common
in river and lake beds of the latest
geological epoch that the name of
Mquus beds has been applied to them.
In South America has been found an
ancestor of the horse of the same epoch
called Hippidiuni, with many of the
peculiarities of the hipparloins, but with
a head as largo as that of the modern
horse. Neolithic men left pictures of
the early horses of Europe on their
monuments of polished stones.
As shown In the chart, the evolution
of the horse may be traced In unbroken
line from the Cretaclc period down to
the present time. From an original an
cestor the size of a cat, the horse grad
ually came to be known as we know
him to-day. Harper's Weekly.

and hoarding the engine, which they
take possession of and take the train
to a convenient place for the continu

ferred to contemplates a system of
piliing encircling the engine in such
a Avny that all avenues of approach
are covered and when confronted by
the weapons of a gang of thieves the

engineer, without the use of his hands
and even when his hands are held over
his head in compliance to their order,
he can surround the engine with a
curtain of hot water so that the thieves
will he blinded and otherwise disabled
-and forced to desist their further ef
forts to secure their plunder. This sys
tem Is designed to protect In tills man
ner, not only the entrances to the cab
of the engine, but also the steps and
other parts of the tender and the plat
form' of the front car. This apparatus
may lie thrown into operation from
cither sldo of the engineer's cab In like
manner, thus placing this moans of
protection at the command of the fire
man as won as the engineer.
The idea, which is the invention of
George A, Copp, of Chicago, 111., calls
for n system of piping connected with
the boiler, below the water line, .and
carried around the engine and tender
and covering all the vulnerable points.
The pipes are supplied with spoon noz
zles at frequent intervals and are man
ipulated by three valves convenient to
the feet of the engineer and fireman.
Each of the valves control a different
part of the system in order that the
scalding water may be directed to that
part from which the advance is being
made. Thus one lever will cause a
curtain of hot water to fall around the
roar of the call, while another projects
streams around the front of the en
gine and the third throws a steaming
let over the tender to the platform of
the first car of the train, which is gen
erally the express car and the one
which the robbers would naturally at
tack at the outset of their operations.
If the engineer finds himself confront
ed from all directions, he can press
all three levers and immediately sur
round the engine with an envelope of
hot water and steam.
When the recent net of Congress be
comes effective the Navy will have al

A PRIMITIVE AUTOMOBILE
A Road Locomotive Miio in Ij
While It Is a matter of history that
the first locomotive made and run in
I'lt'land was n small model of an or
dinary road locomotive constructed In
17M by William Murdoch, It Is prob
ably littl" known that this original en

In the jiast year, been exhibited In Lon
don by Messrs. Tangyes, Limited. The
little locomotive is about fourto"!!
Indies high and nineteen inches lung,
with a width over the driving wheel of
sev n inches. The anncxetl reproduc
tion of a recent photograph of it illus
trates its makeup very clearly. There
Is nu oblong board, mounted upon
three wheels, with two driving wheels
at the rear attached to a crank axle,
and one steering wheel in front, ar
ranged under the board, and running In
a swivelling fork, which can he set by
a tiller handle above, llehind the driv
ing wheels is the holler, which Is a rec
tangular vessel, three and three-eighths
Inches high, four and one-fourth inches
long, and three and one-eighth Inches
wide, made of copper. Through the
boiler a Hue passes obliquely, contract
ing from a circular chamber forming
the firebox to a small funnel in the
top of the boiler, which servos to carry
oft' the products of combustion from
a spirit lump arranged to burn within
the firebox. The steam cylinder of the
engine is mounted on the top of the
boiler and the lower part passes Into
it and is surrounded by steam. The
piston rod passes upward and Is at
tached to the end of a vibrating beam,
which passes to the front of the car
riage and is pivoted in an upright
pillar. The diameter of the piston is
three-fourths inch, and the length of
its stroke is about two inches. As the

piston passes up and down it causes
the beam to rotate the driving wheels
by means of a connecting rod attached
to the crank axle. A leaden weight
is placed above the steering wheel to
balance the machine, and to prevent its
tipping over when Avater is in the
boiler. Cassior's Magazine.
