The recent reduction in price of
aluminium has called renewed atten
tion to the possibilities of the use of
aluminium-bronze castings for pur
poses in which the strength of forged
t,teel without its liability to corrosion
are essential. Its price should now be
not much above that of ordinary gun
Every good cook is careful to dis
pose at once of the water in which
meat has been washed. Only a very
few hours are necessary to change it
into a foul-smelling liquid if the tem
perature is suitable. This change is
due to a little plant called bacterium
termo. A drop of this putrid material
under the microscope reveals many
thousands of them, acting under a pecu
liar vibratile motion.
Queen Victoria speaks ten lan
guages fluently. The queen's grand-daughter-in-law,
the German empress,
is also clever as a linguist. She sur
prised her guests at a recent court en
tertainment by talking Norwegian to
one of them who came fro::, that coun
try. She plays the violin very well,
and when she and her husband manage
to get a quiet evening together, they
generally devote it to music.
"I have read somewhere," said an
early riser, "that we don't cat hash as
much as we did, and I have no doubt
that is true, but we must still eat some,
for I bear occasionally, as I take my
morning .stroll, issuing out of base
ment windows the familiar sound of
the chopping knife a sound, I will
add. not unpleasant to me, for while
hash may not be an extremely fashion
able dish, I am free to say that good
hash I like." X. Y. Sun.
Dvorak's negro symphony, which
is made up of negro melodies and which
he wrote while .rusticating last sum
mer at the little ISoheraian settlement
at Spillville, la., has leen enthusias
tically received in London. Tin; great
composer says that in all that relates
to melody and to temperament the ne
groes are natural musicians, but that
it will take many generations of cul
ture to develop their intellects to the
point of appreciating the higher and
larger forms of music.
Daniel Webster once sat for his
portrait to the late G. I. A. Ilealy and
the senator's remark when he surveyed
the completed picture became one of
the artist's favorite anecdotes in after
years. "I think." said Webster, as he
looked nt his counterfeit presentment,
"that is a face I have often shaved."
Ilealy found Andrew Jackson a disa
greeable and unwilling "subject,' and
he compensated hyiself by painting
Old Hickory with absolute fidelity to
nature, not glossing a single defect.
The portrait gives Jackson an ugly,
savage and pallid face.
Sometimes a man who wants to
stop a street ear snaps his fingers at
the driver or the gripman. It seems
: though the gripman would be ex
:if perated by that, but he doesn't ap
pear to be. Some people lift a hand
high in the air and hold it there, and
some people wave an umbrella or a
cane; but the great majority of people
have discovered thut for all ra-netieal
purposes in stopping a ear a toothpick j
is as good as a lence rail. All that is
necessary is to catch the driver's eye.
It isn't necessary to shove a house on
the track in front of him.

with a junior about the wonders of this

said the youngster; "it is a most inter

"Ah yes very interesting, no doubt,"
