A Short and Prulltable Patent. (From The Wall Stroet Journal.) Perhaps the shortest patent applica tion extant ls tho one on filo in the Patent Offlco at Washington, which reads: "I claim a patent on a screw with a gimlet point." Previous to that all screws used In wood work hsd been ot the blunt end variety, and the carpenter had to carefully bore a hole with a gimlet or augur before Inserting hts screw and forcing lt home The advent ot tho screw with a gimlet point which would bore Itself in revolutionised this. Thia patent was held by the 'Ameri can Screw Company of Providence, Rhodo Island, and before' the patent ran out an? lt waa impossible for others to raiutufacture it without dam age suits, this company mads tremen dous profila. The demand for the gimlet pointed screw waa of course immense and the company did not know what to do with Ita profits. All of Its dray horses were carefully selected blacks and tremendous prices were paid for good stock. The har ness was of patent leather trimmed with .red, while the wagons plynlg bach and forth between the factory -.nd th? docks or the railroad had red undergear to match the harness trim mings sud the wheels were decorated with gold leaf 14 carat fine. But this is all past. Today the pointed screw can be purchased at any corner store for a few cents a psckage. lady-These strawberries ar? quite ?green. , Peddler-Well, mum, they're just from the country.-Boston Trans cript. SANITATIO? OF ADORE PUBLIC HE Rochester, N. Y., Sept. 7.-The American Public Health association members in convention here tonight heurd their president, Dr. William T. Sedgwick, summarize the opportuni ty presented lo tile present-day pub lic health workers. "After thc present bloody conflicts are ov<-r the races of mankind will turn as never before to the nobler pursuits of life, health und happi ness," he said. In reviewing what had lately been done towards the promotion of public health und also in IookitiK to tile fu ture. Dr. Sedgwick laid gre: stress on sanitation. "Up to 1880," lie said, "preventative medicine chiefly in the form of vacci nation was the principal weupon for thc promotion of public health, but a long *t<'n forward was taken when, in that year, with a reorganization of tho state Hoard of Health of Massa chusetts, sanitary engineering be came a recognised and indispensable brandi of public health science. "Bacteriological laboratories for tho quick detection of dangerous in fections, have now been Installed al most everywhere, at least lu the more progressive American cities and towns. We have begun the medical and sanitary* supervision of schools and school buildings. We have in vented and put within the reach of all but the very poor the most complete, convenient and salubrious heating and Ventilating appliances In tho world, for houses, theatres, hulls, hotels and wot'(shops. We have made Ice, once a luxury for Kings and Emperor a universal solace for all classes in ot weather. We have perfected ant' x tended the preservation of foods y cold and by canning, so that scasu.ial scarcity is aniost unknown.

We have applied ma chinery to the manufacture of abun dant and better and cheaper shoes and clothing. We have shown by experi ment with a national spitting nuis ance, 'the possibility of modifying un sanitary nablts by cducutinn and rea sonable sanitary ordinances. "On the other hand, we have failed to achieve many much needed sani tary conditions.

Probably the most flagrant failure : in American sanitation today is the almost universal lack of public con? [venience or comfort stations in Amer i lian cities and towns. Failure like I this to provide proper public toilet j facilities is to fail in one of the very elements of sound public health, i "We have failed to reduce as we ?should have done typhoid fever in i America.
