The Old tirlck Oven.
Every Saturday, long years ago, my
mother nsed to bake in a brick oven. We
had a stove in the kitchen, bnt its oven
was imperfect, so she clung to the brick
one. The boys brought in the long oven
wood. It was bested to perfection. When
the wood was reduced to coals and the
soals were mostly taken out, the tempera
ture was tried, not with a thermometer,
for these instruments were then scarcely
known, but with the hand.
If the hand could be held therein while
its owner counted thirty, the oven was just
right for the proper baking of pies. If the
liand was scorched the oven was left open
for a few minutes to cool off. After the
pies and cake came the bread, and then
for we were Connecticut Yankees) the pot
of beans and the loaf of rye and Indian
bread were put in to bake for the Satur
day night's supper and the Sunday dinner.
Alany beans have I eaten elsewhere in
many parts of our Land, but never did
bean have the same flavor, never did pork
have the same crispness or brown bread
the same richness as used to be produced
in the old family brick oven.
On extraordinary occasions, such as
quilting parties, training days, weddings
and funerals, old Nance was called in to
bake for us. She was the neighborhood
caterer; an African of the Africans. How
the oven glowed as the fire shone on her
yellow turban and was reflected from her
honest black face! What wonderful wed
riinjj cake she would make! What pala
table funeral meats she would bake! Her
midnioniing dram was always set upon
the mantelpiece, and how limber her
tongue would become after she had tossed
tt oiIJ Troy Times.
Slavery Among Ants.
Certain warlike species of ants, as For
mica sanjiuinea and Formica rufescins,
have subjugated a negro species, Formica
fusca. Here again ants, while behaving
like men, have never allowed themselves
the abuses of force to which men are ac
customed. They never enslave adult ants;
they seize upon the pupa?, bring up the
young, treat them gently and thus turn
them into docile and zealous servants.
The slave ants, who have never known
the city from which they sprang, do all the
Inferior work of the community with eager
Alacrity, care for the larva?, carry their
mistresses, feed them, barricade the ap
proaches in case of siege, receive the vic
torious aniazons with joy when they re
turn from a fruitful expedition and re
lieve them of the pupie captured in the
raid. They are so thoroughly on the side
of their employers that it is believed they
molest those who retnrn from an expedi
tion with empty mandibles.
As for these slaves, their labor is purely
domestic. In some English ant bills the
slaves never leave the nest. In Switzer
land some go aphis hunting, a business
scorned by the warrior ants. The warriors
always seem to consider the black ants
who serve them as their property, and
though they may allow themselves to be
carried by their slaves, these soldiers, in
their turn, do not disdain to carry their
servants for safety's sake when changing
house, or in case of a siege to drag them
hastily down into the depths of the subter
ranean dwelling. "Property; Its Origin
Spelling by Electricity.
A decided novelty in the electrical line is
an "illuminating speller," which was used
at the graduating exercises of the Colum
bia university law class, Washington.
It is nothing more or less than a ma
chine which spells words and can even be
made to construct entire sentences. It
consists of any desired number of boxes
ranted side by side and made light tight
except in front, where they are covered
with letter transparencies cut from ordi
nary cardboard and having tissue paper of
different colors pasted over them. In each
box is a 16-cnndle power incandescent lamp.
In the present instance the "speller,"
which was driven by a little one-eighth
horse power motor, makes about eight revo
lutions a minute. It is a cylinder about
fourteen inches in diameter, around
which are placed any given number of
brass strips of different lengths, and con
nected with a transverse strip which rnns
to the boxes. Asthiscyclinderis revolved,
it throws the current into one box after
the other, flashing the lirht on, and thus
spelling out the words. The sentence can
te left in illumination any time, and can
also be flashed backward by means of a re
versing switch. It would seem that such
a device as this might have many uses of
Treat value besides enlivening the exer
c es of a graduating class. New York
The Mockingbird on Washing Iay.
A saucy mockingbird tries to rule with
sovereign sway my neighbor's dooryard.
So domineering has he become that he ap
pears regularly every Monday morning
when the family washing is !eing hung to
dry. Near nt hand he alights on a tiough
and sings jubilantly. He tilts and courte
sies and fairly gurgles with ecstatic
gushes as the white garments go up in
varied array to float in the breeze. But
when the red bandanna handkerchiefs of
the men are pinned flapping to the line,
suddenly his ecstatic note changes, his
jubilant mood deserts him and his voice,
but lately full of melody, becomes that of
an unmistakable scold. He bristles, he
blusters, he pours forth defiant menaces at
the very top of his voice. And at last he
retreats in high dudgeon, nor will he re
turn while the objectionable red flags
flutter from the line. San Diego Cor.
The Camel's lilte.
The camel alone of all ruminants has in
cisor teeth in the upper jaw, which, with
the peculiar structure of his other teeth,
make his bite, the animal's first and main
defense, most formidable. The skeleton of
the camel is full of proofs of design. No
tire, for example, the arched backbone,
constructed in such a way as to sustain
the greatest weight in proportion to the
spun of the supports. A strong camel can
bear 1,000 pounds weight, although the
usual load in Yemen is not more than COO
pounds. Rev. S. M. Zwemer in Christian
The Size of the Earth.
To form some idea of the largeness of the
earth, one may look upon the landscape
from the top of an ordinary church steeple,
and then bear in mind that one must view
900,000 similar landscapes to get an ap
proximately correct idea of the size of the
earth Place 500 earths like ours side by
side, yet Saturn's outermost ring could
easily inclose them. Three hundred thou
sand earth globes could be stored inside of
the sun if hollow. Copenhagen Norast
jermen. Isabel's Feeling.
A day or two ago Isabel, three years old,
was dressing her doll. For some reason
everything did not work to suit her, and

To Resuscitate the Ifalf Drowned
Everybody may be called upon to afford
assistance to drowned persons while the
doctor is being sent for, and Professor La
borde's simple method for restoring breath
when all other means have failed deserves
to be universally known. The other day
at a watering place in Normandy two
bathers, a young man and a boy, who were
unable to swim, went out of their depth
and disappeared. They were brought on
shore inanimate, and were taken to the vil
lage. Two doctors were sent for, but the
young man gave no sign of life and they
declared he was dead.
M. Laborde, who was fishing at half an
hour's distance, came up as soon as he
heard of the accident, lie examined the
body and found that the extremities were
cold and the heart had stopped. Then tak
ing hold of the root of the ttfngue he drew
it violently forward, giving it a succession
of jerks in order to excite the reflex action
of the breathing apparatus, which is al
ways extremely sensitive. At the end of a
few minutes a slight hiccough showed that
the patient was saved.
In addition to the usual restorative
means Professor Larborde, in extren
cases, rubs the chest with towels soaked in
hot and nearly boiling water, although the
skin is blistered by this. Ixmdon News.
A small basement candy shop in the
French quarter adds to the seduction of
sweets the promise of prizes to all who
purchase in considerable quantities. A
pasteboard sign in the shop window bears
this odd legend: "Ixok, look! For each
cent you will buy candy you get a ticket.
Bring your tickets you get a preasant." In
the list of "preasants" rs a "nice tchain"
offered to the possessor of fifty tickets.
