An tsproved Baoy.
Anew buoy of great value haa bwn
added to the list of life saving devices. It
consists of an ai.nular copper tank, with a
hols 1n she center, across which is hung a
life chain, upon which a person can sit or
support himsek' with ease while grasping
the buoy. This tank is divided into nu
merous watertit ht compartments to mini
mize the possibility of injury. At the side
are arranged to hollow rods, working
upon a swivel jc int. the bottom or heavier
portion of these rods being equipped with
cans for the rect ption of phosphide of cal
cium. When tae buoy is hung at the
ship's side the tipper ends of these hollow
rods are closed ly stoppels, which answer
the double purpjse of steadying the buoy
while hung for use and also for preventing
the entrance of vain from above into the
can at the lowet end.
When the buoy is cast adrift the heavier
ends of the rod swing under the water
like pendulums, immersing the cans con
taining the phosphide of calcium, which
is immediately ignited by the entrance of
the water throuih the perforations for that
purpose at the bottom. In the daytime a
discharge of smoke issues from the upper
ends of the hollow rods, while at uight
this smoke becones a luminous flame that
can be seen for several miles. Besides
these advantages over the old. type, which
was seldom tn I relied on, this bnoy is
more compact, better protected from in
jury and much lighter. It will sustain
three persons. In a test of the buoy a man
jumped overboard wlenaship was going
ahead at full spd. The ship was stopped,
the bnoy was dropped and the lifeboat was
lowered, and in three minutes the man,
who had reached the bnoy, was picked np
and brought on loard. Philadelphia Press.
Tennyson's Poems of Art.
The group of poems in which Tennyson
deals with art is important, not only for
the poems the nselves, but also for the
light which they throw upon his artistic
principles and tastes. It is not altogether
by chance that i he poets to whom he gives
greeting are Vilton, Virgil, Dante and
Victor Hugo. 1 u "The Poet" you will find
his early conception of the power of poetry;
in "The Poet's Miud," his thought of its
purity; in "The Poet's Song," his avowal
that its charm depends upon faith in the
"The Palace of Art" is an allegory of the
impotence of :irt when separated from
human love. "The Flower" tells in a sym
bolic manner his experience with unrea
soning critics. "The Spiteful Letter" and
"Literary Squabbles" are reminiscences of
the critical wat fare which raged around
him in his yuuti and made him sometimes
forget his owu principle of doing his work
"as quietly and as well as possible without
much heeding tse praise or the dispraise."
But to my mi ad the most important and
in some respects the most beautiful of these
art poems is "Merlin and the Gleam." The
wonder is that none of the critics seem to
have recognized it for what it really is
the poet's own description of his life work,
and his clear confession of faith asan ideal
ist, Eev. Dr. Van Dyke in Century.
Making Glasa Bottles by Machinery.
The manfucture of glass bottles by ma
chinery, undertaken awhile ago by a New
Jersey manufacturer, has not only proved
a success, but a ripears to possess some de
cided advantages over the ordinary meth
od, even with the appliances and processes
as thus far developed. Gathering the glass
in the usual nanner, it is allowed to run
from the rod in o an iron cup, which holds
the quantity needed for making the bottle,
when a hollow iron plunger at the bottom
of the cup is pushed up through the mass
and the cup reversed, leaving the glass in
a plastic coodit.on suspended from the hol
low plunger through which air is admit
ted; the cup, which is hinged, is now re
moved, and the movement of a lever ad
mits a small quantity of air; the bulb is
then flattened at the bottom and dropped
into the mold, which latter is at once
closed and the air applied, this operation
completing the bottle, and it is taken while
hot to the annealing oven.
By the ordinary process of manufacture
the ring at the top of the bottle neck was
formed by a second operation, but this is
done away wit i by the machine method,
the bottle coming from the mold with a
perfectly forme i ring. New York Sun.
Erosion Tliat Levels Mountains.
Owing to the interliedding of hard and
enduring sandstone, qnartzite, gneiss and
other rock for nations, with more easily
eroded Iimestoi e, shales, incoherent sand
stones, or schists, erosion commonly pro
duces a new topography, making hollows
and long valle:s where the more erosible
beds have been removed, and leaving ridges
and mountain i anges of the harder rocks.
More than this, when erosion has been
continued through very long periods, it
tends toward tl e nltimate resnlt of remov
ing the upward curved or anticlinal por
tions of the gTeat folds and sparing the
originally lower downward curved or syn
clinal portions, until valleys take the places
which were criginally occupied by the
highest upheavals, while the original
troughs, where the rocks were most com
pacted by pressure, remain now as the
principal mountain ridges. Under denuda
tion, the folded mountainous belt fulfills
the prophecy, ' Every valley shall be ex
alted and ever; mountain and hill shall
be made low." Warren Upbam in Popu
lar Science Mot thly.
File for Fishing.
Artificial fliei may fairly be considered
to illustrate the highest development of the
art piscatorial. The imitations produced
in this shape of winged insects, grasshop
pers and the larvte of various bugs are re
ally wonderful. In their manufacture ma
terials are drawn from every part of the
world. Furs as well as feathers are util
ized in making them. Deer, bears, mon
keys, seals, ral bits, sheep, pigs, squirrels,
dogs and even I ats contribute. Agents are
sent out from I aris to all parts of the earth
to gather for this purpose the skins of rare
and gaudy wintred creatures. These plumes
and furs represent chiefly the waste stock
of the milliner i and taxidermists, nearly
all of them be: ng brought from France.
The gut snells to which the fly hooka are
attached are made from immature silk
worms drawn cut to the requisite lengths.
