The state conference of the Daugh

last week in October and directly aft
erward, on October 29, the Daughters
will place a marker on the site in
Varren county, where Daniel lo1.one
and his wife, liebecca, were buried.
The daughters have been rnde

markets at all historic shots in the
state, and will continue the good
work. It is all very well for the men
who blazed the way and the ien 'Who
fought for their country's honor and
well-being to lo remembered in this
way, but sometimes it seems as if one
would like to hear of a society, a
vanguard of peace, as it were, that
-would mark the deeds of the real he

forth their heroic efforts in any way.
There are thousands of mothers, de
priving themselves of all the good
things in life that their children may
have an education. The president of
a college told me once that in a far
away New England town his mother
had just died. le could not go to
the funeral, and, while it possibly was
being hlid he told me something of
what his mother had been to hunn.
"She was left with a poor little New
Etn:land farm," he said. "and four
sons. She sent each of us to collo;e.
and I don't understand to this day

per'f'ected an insulating skin for alumini

small rlunitinum wire as economical of

to the Engineering News, they have
produced two kinds of films. One is
smooth and iridescent; the other,
white and abrasive. Of these, the
second is the better, for it is only
.0001 to .0001 of an inch thick, and
staids from 200 to 500 volts. Two
wires can be pressed together until
they nre indented without breaking
the film; but rubbing will expose the
metal, and make a short circuit. The
ilim is fireproof, and has mechanical
strength enough to support the wire
in small coils above the melting point.
To coat the wire with the film, it is
passed through electrolytic baths (so
lutions of borax, ammonium borate,
or sedium silicate)-a process in
which tihe wire itself acts as the
