Temporary Heat Quickly
Did you ever stop to think of the many ways in which a
perfect oil heater Is of value? If you want to sleep with your win
dow open in winter, you can get sufficient heat from an oil heater
while you undress at night, and then turn it off. Apply a match
in the morning, when you get out of
bed, and you have heat while you dress.
Those who have to eat an early
breakfast before the stove is radiating
heat can get immediate warmth from
an oil heater, and then turn it off.
The girl who practices on the piano
in a cold room in the morning can
have warmth from an oil heater while
she plays, and then turn It off.
The member of the family who
has to walk the floor on a cold win

temporary heat with an oil heater and

An Invisible but Constant Shower of
Tiny Hollow Steel Balls.
Meteoric dust is composed of minute
hollow spheres of steel that look un
der the microscope like leaden shot.
They are Infinitely finer than grains
of sand. Their origin is Interesting.
Meteors, or shooting stars as they are
generally called, have from the begin
ning of things been bombarding the
world at a rate estimated by the high
est authority at many thousands an
hour. Owing to the earth's protecting
envelope of air very few of these mis
siles reach us. In size meteors vary
from a few ounces to many pounds In
weight, and It Is only very occasion
ally that one is of sufficient dimensions
to survive the passage of 80 to 10O
miles through an atmosphere Increas
ing In density as the earth Is ap
proached. The speed at which they
enter the atmosphere, calculated at not
less than thirty-five miles a second,
generates such intense heat by fric
tion that the iron of which the meteor
principally consists is immediately re
duced to an incandescent vapor, which

seen in the heavens on a clear night
The vapor rapidly cools and con
denses in the form of these minute
particles, which assume the spherical
form, as does shot during'lts fall from
the top of a tower. Finally the lit
tle spheres are scattered by the winds
and currents In the upper regions and
gradually descend In their millions as
an invisible but never ending shower.
The perfect condition In which the
spheres are fonnd ls due to the pres
ence of certain noncorroslve elements

These little spheres can be found In
almost any sample of dust, particles
