A New Street Car Trolley.
The greatest trouble which is found in
the working of the electric trolley on street
car roads is the wearing out of the bush
ing in the wheels at such a rate that a re
bushing has to lie made once a month, and
the necessity of excessive daily attention
and much oiling is entailed. An attempt
has been made to remedy this fault by de
signing h trolley the bearings of which are
made of fiber graphite and which hence re
quire no oil whatever. The bearings are
fastened on each side of the yoke, and the
pin or shaft is fastened to the wheel, both
revolving on the bearings in the yoke.
This makes the trolley mechanically cor
rect and avoids all wabbling of the wheel,
which is compelled to be steady and true.
Another advantage is that the springs are
unable to get out of place and must con
stantly keep up he same contact, so there
is no breaking or arcing of the current ami,
moreover, no rattle. Instead o the usual
accumulation of oil, grease and dirt on the
top of the car, caused by the oil splashing
down from the trolley, the car and rope are
clean. This trolley wheel is said to have
run 000 miles without showing appreciable
wear. New York Telegram.
Where It Was Cold.
Dr. Chalmers told me that he just once
went to hear the chief preacher of the Auld
Licht, He was there in good time. He was
put into the elders' seat. It was a terribly
bare little building. The elders were a
grim set. They kept their bonnets on their
heads till the minister entered, and they
had each a large stick in hand, which they
used for chapping their noses through all
the service. The minister wore no gown
nor bands. He gave a very long sermon
full of sound divinity, but without the
smallest practical application and without a
vestige of feeling. At length Dr. Chalmers
got out, the dismal worship being ended.
And his word was, "If these people ever get
to heaven, they will live on the north side
of it." iAjngnian's Magazine.
We often speak of "white heat" and "red
heat," by which is meant the appearance
of bodies, such as masses of iron, raised to
different decrees of temperature. A white
hot body is hotter than a nil hot one.
There is May in books forever; May will
