A FEW LITTLE WONDERS.
THE MECHANICS ART DISPLAYED
Some of the Wonders of the World Which
Seem Almost Impossible A City la ft
Cherry Stone A Coach Drawn by Fleas.
The Nurembergers hare always been fa
mous for their many Ingenious mechanical
contrivances, but perhaps the most wonder
ful b a cherry stone story.
At the time of the French Crystal Palace
exposition a Nuremberg toymaker exhibited
a cherry stone within the hollow of which be
had built a perfect plan of the city of Beras
tapol, showing plainly a railway station and
the famous "Meatdah" of KJopntock.
A powerful microscope was used by the ex
hibitor of this wonder, and it was estimated
by the exhibition authorities that not leas
than 500,000 people took a peep at the results
of the toynmkert toil, each of whom deposited
a franc in the hands of the ingenious me
chanic, making him a snug little fortune.
Machines for weights and measures have
aluo been brought up almost to perfection.
CHAIN AND COACH FOB FLEAS.
Sir W. Armstrong, the great gun maker,
bad on exhibition in 1878 a machine for tak
ing measurements that did its work so nicely
that the millionth part of an inch could be
ascertained with as much precision as an
inch or a foot. At the same exhibition one
A. M. Oberlong showed a balance so nicely
adjusted as to weigh accurately the one-thousandth
pnrt of a grain. Talk about little won
ders not being wonderful ; the person surely has
but little conception of the really marvelous
that would not inspect Mr. Oberlong's deli
cate balances rather than a Howe platform
scale the size of the state of Missouri.
Oswaldus Northingenus, an artist who lived
during the reign of Pope Paul V, about
1610, is said to have made six hundred
plates or diHhes of pewter, which were of
such diminutive proportions as to admit of
the whole lot being hidden upon the inside of
the stone of a common peach.
Mark Scarlost, a blacksmith who lived un
der the reign of Queen Elizabeth, made a
chain of forty-five links, to whi-h be attached
a padlock made of steel and brat. eonshiting
of eleven pieces besides the key. The chain
was so small as to freely admit of being fast
ened about the neck of a common every day
flea, and the apparatus, flea, chain, padlock,
key and all weighed but a grain and a half
when exhibited before the wondering royalty
on a plate of polished silver.
The reader will, no doubt, think these flea
and cherry stone stories worthy to be taken
with the proverbial grain of salt, noting, as
be will, that they nearly all bear the date and
stamp of "ye olden times;" but what will he
say when informed that within the last five
years a San Francisco professor has equaled
juarK ocar tost s ingenuity in every particular.
This Golden Gate grasper after the Infini
tesimal exhibited a perfectly trained team of
fleas, drawing a miniature tally-ho coach
made of gold, with all four wheels perfect.
each turning on its axle. AU the elite of San
Francisco witnessed the professor's wonderful
exhibition of his control over these frisky
little pets, and all were unsparing in their
praises of the queer little team, the professor
ana tne goiaen coacn.
The first watch was made in Nuremberg in
the cherry stone about the year 1477. Soon
after its Invention curious gold and silver
smiths began to experiment on what they
could do in the way of diminutive time pieces.
One of these, now over S00 years old, is kept
as a wondor in one of the Swiss museums. It
is only threo-sixteenthsof an Inch in diameter.
but, small as it is, it not only indicates hours
and minutes, but seconds and tenths of sec
onds, days of the week, days of the month
and the number of the year.
Another of the old Nuremberg wonders
was in the form of an acorn, five-sixteenths
of an inch In diameter and half an inch long.
It was perfect in every particular, kept good
time and was used as a charm on a lady
One of exactly the same pattern, but pro
vided with a tiny pistol, which was used as
an alarm, is now to lie seen in the South
Kensington museum, Loudon. King George
III, of England, had a watch not larger
than an old fashioned silver five cent piece,
which bad DO different ports, the whole
not weighing as much as a silver dime. It
would take a column of The Republic to
enumerate all the dainty little time pieces
that have been invented during the past 400
years. They have been niado not larger
than peas and set in rings fur physicians to
facilitate the counting of the pulse. They
have also been fixed In bracelets, brooches,
eye glasses, tops of pencils and even in um
brella handles.. Finished workmanship and
plenty of money will provide almost anything
that can l conjured up by a myriad minded
ivfi.n iter ncAL rvonres.
The enginemakers, like the watchmakers,
have also tried to attain distinction in the
matter of the diminutive, lu 1870 John
Penn, the eminent maker of great steam en
gines, who resided at Oreenwich, England,
came in possession of what was then the
smallest steam engine in the world. It stood
on a three penny piece. It really covered leas'
space, for its bne plate mensural only three
eighths of an inch by about three-tenths.
From the extreme smallness of the model
some of the details were omitted, but not
enough to interfere in anv way with its
going. The screws were only the one-eightieth
of an inch in diameter, and thera were
duly furnished with hexngnnnl nuts, which
could only lie loosened by aid of a tiny wrench
made for that purpme. The weight of the
whole model, without the three penny base,
was less than the weight of tbo coin itself.
Six years later, time of our centennial ex
hibition, Penn would have felt ashamed of
' his "three penny piece engine" had he had iton
exhibition at Philadelphia. During the prog
gress of that great exposition, I-vi Taylor,
of Indianola, la., placed on exhiliition,"side by
side" with the great Corliss engine, an engine
erfect in all its parts, built on a twenty-five
cent gold piece, and with some of its parts so
small as to only be seen by aid of a powerful
microecoiie. The entire engine weighed but
three grains. In other words, it would have
taken 140 such engines to balance an ounce
avoirdupois. Three of tho Penn engines
would have weighed more than 140 like that
made by Taylor."
The engine made by D. A. Buck, of Water
bury, Conn., is usually given in lists of small
things as the smallest engine in the world;
but this Is a mistake. The one mentioned
last above so far takes the palm for smallneas.
The writer cheerfully admits that the Buck
engine is more perfect in Its details than the
Iowa wonder; but the fact that its base plate
is a gold dollar forever kills its claim to being
the smallest, as the Iowa engine, aa men
tioned above, uses a twenty-five cent gold
piece for the purpose. Buck's engine has 148
distinct pieces of machinery, held together
by fifty-two screws. Three drops of water
fill the boiler to overflowing. The diameter
of Its cylinder is one-twenty-eighth of an
Inch; the length of stroke, three-thirty -seconds
of an Inch ; 1U entire weight, four and a
half grains. John W. Wright la St. Louis
Pin Cushion Koveltles.
Fin cushions with silver trimmings are on
every lady's toilet table, and most men own
at least one that is carried In the pocket.
There are acorn cushions, the acorn being oi
plush or satin, in a silver stalk with oxidized
oak leaves. A decided novelty Is a swan in

as a bust of a shepherdess, mounted on an In
flated skirt of plush or satin, which serves as
a cushion. Heart shaped pin cushions, with
silver cover, which hitter, on being In
verted, becomes a Jewel tray, are pretty nov

The "soap trick" is being successfully j
worked in many of the neighboring !
towns and it might be as well for Rock
Islanders to get posted in regard to the
scheme. The swindle is conducted by
htwo "slick" chaps who buy an abundance
of cheap soap and cut it up into small
pieces, which they perfume and neatly
wrap in colored paper. One of the fel
lows dresses himself like a dude, and
while the crowd he gathers supposes it is
having lots of fun at no cost, he sells a
few pieces, and sometimes to start a
sale gives a few pieces away. The par
ties receiving it talk about the soap be
ing just what .it is represented to be.
But the dude, makes such an idiot of
himself in boasting how much soap he
can sell in a day that a common, seedy
looking fellow in the crowd yells out,
"Well, why don't you sell It thent" They
at once become engaged in a wrangle,
which is terminated by the seedy looking
fellow betting that he can sell more soap
in ten minutes than the proprietor of the
stand can sell in half a day. The bet is
generally a large one, and as sympathy is
generally with the seedy fellow, the crowd
come to his support, and he rapidly sells
his share of the soap. The men are con
federates, who thus play into each oth
er's hands. The twain were in Burling-
ton recently .
