A can from which oil can bo cither
poured in the usual manner or driven
out has been devised for the use of en
pincers, says The Scientific American.
Time is saved, and spilling; and wasting
of the oil are prevented.
. The can is provided with a pump, the
piston rod of which is plvotally. con
nected 'With an oierating lever ful
crunied on the-handle of the can. A
stout spring serves to return the pump
piston 'automatically to lt9 normal posi
tion after oioration. The pump cylinder-

comprising valve chambers arranged to
be closed by sprins pressed valves. A
pipe leads into the oil from the one
vttlve chamber, and a second pipe leads
to the spoot.
Ity actuating the operating lever the
pump piston on the up stroke will draw
oil Into the chamber, press back the
first Talve and permit the oil to" flow
into the pump cylinder. The nest down
stroke of the piston will force the oil
past the second valve and down
throrgXi the spout. A spout pipe of the
usual pattern is also provided to per
mit the oil to be poured out of the can.
New Valve Gear.
At a meeting in London of the share
holders of the Great Northern railway
a newly invented valve gear for loco
motives was spoken of which, it it
said, would effect a saving of at least
$.jO.UOO.(mh) a year if it should be adopt
ed by all the railway companies in the
United Kingdom. The chief virtues
chained for this new valve gear by the
inventor, J. T. Marshall, an engineer
of Leeds, .are that It very greatly in
creases the propelling power of the pis
loir .per. pound of steam pressure em
ployed and that with a comparatively
slight' modification of : the locomotives
now in use the railway companies will
save enormously ! in coal, locomotion
and many other working expenses.

THE PHALANX. , V
, t f
ttm Formavtloa In tke Military Meth
od of Ancient Orccrr.
A phalanx in the military affairs of
Greeee was a square battalion or body
of soldiers formed In ranks and tiles
compact a-nd deep with their shields
Joined and pikes crossing each other so
as to render it almost impossible to
break it. At first the phalanx consisted
of 4,000 men, but this number was aft
erward doubled by Philip of Maeedon.
and the double phalanx is hence often
called the Macedonian phalanx. Toly
bius describes it thnsr
"It was a square of plkemen, con
sisting of 10 in flank and 500 in front.
The soldiers stood so close together
that the pikes of the fifth rank extend
ed three feet beyond the front. The
rest, whose pikes were not serviceable
owing to their distance from the front,
couched them upon the shoulders of
those who stood before them and, so
locking them together in file, pressed
forward to support and push on the
former rank, by which means the as
sault was rendered more violent and
Irresistible." The spears of those be
hind also stopped the missiles of the
enemy. Each man's pike was twenty
three feet long. The word phalanx Is
ateo used for any combination of peo
ple distinguished for sulldity and firm
ness. A grand phalanx consisted of
What nit Iflm.
Some years ago, while a gentleman
was walking from St Jaines park to
rail Mall on n bright afternoon in sum
mer, he suddenly received a blow on
the shoulder which caused him to stum
ble, and at the same time he heard a
loud, crackling noise. On recovering
he looked around for his assailant, but
there was nobody visible except a po
liceman, who was many yards away.
When the gentleman reached home.
his shoulder was examined, but no in-
Jury could be found to account for the
pain in it. Soon afterward the servant,
who had taken away his master's out
door coat to brush it. brought back the
garment and iointed out that the nap
on the shoulder was pressed flat as if
a hot wire had been drawn across It.
Every tiling, in fact, pointed to the
probability that the wearer had been
struck by a meteor.
The incident might well be used as a
blackboard lesson for children aye,
and for some grownup children, too
who imagine that "shooting stars" only
shoot in the dark. Chambers Journal.

Some Remarkable Soldiers.
The most remarkable body of sol
diers In the world is Company C,. Third
regiment, the national guards of Min
nesota, stationed at Dulutb. - Every
member of this fine company Is thor
oughly familiar with the military drills
of every nation and could fall into the
ranks and fill all the requirements of a
well drilled and disciplined soldier of
any land. ,
When the company was stationed at
Chattanooga during the Spanish-American
war, It gained the well earned rep
utation of being the best drilled com
pany of all the 70,000 troops in camp.
Since then the company has taken up
the drills of other nations, both ancient
and modern, and has become marvel
ously expert. All the various drills of
the company are held in the uniforms
of the soldiers of the country which the
troops are supposed to represent, and to
make these costumes historically cor
rect the company has expended over
$3,000. Lieutenant C. Josten is the
originator of the scheme, and he de
serves great credit for the admirable
manner in which he has disciplined his
; Each military number is preceded by
a bugler nnd a standard bearer carry

represented and blowing the bugle call

line. The costumes they can hardly be

and -satin handsomely embroidered.
German Army Methods.
At Oldenburg the corporals recently
were ordered by their officer to throw
themselves upon the ground and to eat
grass like cattle. Moreover, the men
obeyed. This extraordinary fact was
disclosed In the German reiehstag. to
gether with others equally remarkable,
which show the methods adopted by
our German friends who are so horri
fied at "our methods of barbarism."
.Another officer, at Breslan this time,
tore the buttons off a private's coat on
a Sunday morning not long ago. Next
the officer made the man stand nearly
naked while he was beaten over the
head with his trousers. His clothes
were then ripped into pieces so that he
could have the. opportunity of resewing
them. When this latter was done, tho
clothes were again cut. and the man
had to sew them up a second time.
A private in one of the rifle battalions
who appeared unshaven was taught a
courteous lesson by his officer. This
gentleman exclaimed. "You pig. I'll
shave you." and proceeded to tear out
the hair with a penknife. Another of
ficer who came up at the time thought
the lesson too mild, so he lighted a
match and held it flaming under the
man's chin and cheeks. Pearson's
ringpong punch, says the Philadel
phia Itccord. is the very newest thing
in soda water fountain concoctions. It
has been introduced In one of Chestnut
street's big soft drink emporiums and
is alreadj- popular. Speaking of this al
literative beverage the other day. the
white coated young man behind the
counter said: "The pingpong punch
was bound to come sooner or later, so
we took time by the forelock nnd stole
a march on our rivals. It's the name
that counts, you know. ' The ingredi
ents? Well, they consist of the juice
of a lemon, a dash of bitters, a glass of
apple cider, a fresh egg and a spoonful
of powdered sugar. That is well sha
ken, poured into a tall glass and filled
up with sparkling soda from the foun
tain. It has caught on immediately,

A sound If laughing lesson in the lit

The village of Waverly, W. Va., uses
an empty ten foot oil tank as a lockup
for the occasional drunk and disorderly

or two ago, and then the. tank was

It is never present in a cigar with
a bright Sumatra wrapper. When
the Sumatra bitterness is taken
out of the wrapper stock it be

The only cigar having a Vuelta
filler ever sold for 5 cents, is the
TOM KEENE. The only properly
cured Sumatra wrapper ever put on a nickel cigar is the wrapper used on the TOM KEENE.
0 When you stop to consider the millions upon . millions of 5 cent cigars sold in the United
States, you will realize the credit due and the support and backing all smokers owe to Bondy
ij5c Lederer. They are producing a staple article, absolutely the only one, barring none,
H which gives the genuine top-notch exquisite quality at the price regularly paid for the cheap
0 est inferiority.
If not recognized, such effort has little encouragement in modern business. Against all
0 the trade, jealousy and the enmity of the incompetents, this concern asks only the consum-
g er's appreciation and backing.
The fine Vuelta filler used in the -TOM KEENE ciiar is the; result of over five years' enterprise,
experiment, care and expense. The rijxht ground was found in various places only after many trials.
The young Vuelta sprouts hrought from Cuba died outright in most places tried. In some places they
0 took sustenance at once, but grew without natural development, texture and flavor. The exactly right
