cJ hir Or. .Trftm?i THE ELECIMCAl WORLD USEFUL FIRE ALARM DEVICE Barnum Was Flabbergasted Amuslng Incident of the Campaign When the Great Showman and Humbugger Wat Seeking Election to Congresa. The last man you'd ever expect to be flabbergasted at anything wan F. T. Barnum, who gloried publicly aa well as privately In the fact that hie bust ness was that of humbugging the American people. Yet there canio a time In the con r no of his election to Congress In 1880 when the groat showman was actually so flabbergast ed for a few momenta that he was actually stricken speechless. Some years before he became obcessed by congressional aspirations, Mr. Barnum was engaged In the per sonally delectable tank of exploiting Tom Thumb. To do this In tho way that he had planned he needed more ready money than he possessed, and, looking about for a man who hud it and was willing to lend it, ho camo across tho lato Chauncey Goodrich, a well-known Connecticut clockmaker, whose father had been a cloekmnkcr before him who had, in fact. Invent ed tho famous Connecticut clock, ro called. To Mr. Goodrich Mr. Barnum gave a Beries of demand notes to se cure the loan. As timo went on It became known, somehow, that Mr. Barnum had nego tiated a loan of Mr. Goodrich and had given notes for it. In time, ulso, Mr. Goodrich's a (Talis bo shaped them selves that he would have been glad to demand payment of the notes, hut he refrained from doing so because of his friendship for the borrower nnd his belief in Mr. Uarnura's Intention to take up the paper when he became able. Thus the matter stood between the two men and was known to ninny of their mutual friends and acquaint ances at the time Mr, Barnum was to be given a great send-oft at n ban quet as the Republican candidate for congress against another linrnum of a totally different make-up tho lnte William II. Barnum, a wenlthy iron manufacturer who afterward became n United States senate from Connecti cut and chairman of the Democratic national committee. The banquet In honor of the chow man was a great success. The lead ing Republicans of the district were there, and there were also several leaders from beyond Hh bounds. Final ly, the toastmaster called upon "our honored guest, our distinguished fcl low citizen, that public-spirited son of Connecticut whoso came Is known all over the English speaking world, and who U now our candidate for congress," to make the Kpeech he had promised the banquet committee In private lie would deliver as the open lug gun of his campaign. Mr. Barnum rose and received the tribute of applar.se thnt followed with every evidence of complete Inward and outward pleasure. Then bis right hand traveled to the Inside pocket of his cont find came away empty, to be thrust itito pocket after pocke with out result. In to his hat Mr. Barnurn looked, and under he table and In his chair. Then he gave a scornful shake of his head and cleared his throat. "My fellow-rltlzens," he began, "I have prepared with core an address In which I meant to express my obli gations to you for the honor you have done mo tonight, and also to Ret forth what in my opinion are the Issues of the campaign before us. There Is great work for our party to do now that tho Union has been saved and reconduction begun. But, my fellow citizens, I can't find my notes. I was sure 1 had them with me. I must have mislaid them or left them at J home."' For a moment Mr. Barnum paused in doubt perhaps, as to what to say next. And In that moment. In a voice thnt carried to every corner of the banquet hall, the late Isaac II. Brum ley, who afterward gained a national reputation as a wit and humorist whilo an editor of the New York Tri bune, sang out: "Mr. Barnum, Chauncey Goodrich has got your notes." In an Instant the banqueters were in an uproar; and as the shouts of laughter surged about him Mr. Bar num appeared completely flabbergast ed. Dirt only momentarily, for, with that quickness of resource for which he was noted, he turned to Mr. Good rich, made swift acknowledgement of his Indebtedness and announced his Intention of taking up the notes. It was In this same campaign that Mr. Barnum was asked why he, a man who made a profession of hum hugging the American public and boasted of it, wanted to go to con gress. Quick as a flash came the re ply: "If I can get elected to congress that will lie the greatest trl'imph of humbugging in all my career." '"! riKlit, llllO. by K. J. Kdwiir.li).

GROWING HAIR ON BALD HEAD Refused Wealth for Ambition How Clement Tetedoux, Famous Teacher of Music, Rejected Offer of Russian Nobleman so That He Might Study Singing. The late Clement Tetedoux was ono f the best known and most successful of all the teachers of music who camo from Europe to this country to take up the vocation of teaching. Ho set tled in Boston in the early sixties was for some years In New York and afterwards at Philadelphia and Chi cago. Many who gulned great success as singers received the greater part of their instruction from him, among them being Clementine Do Vero, Mme. Jacoby, the contralto, and Dr. Carl E. Martin, one of the country'B best known oratorio bassos. M. Tetedoux died about six years ago, and his nume will remain a tradition among American muslcglans tor many years. When I last eaw M. Tetedoux, early In the century, he was ulready 80 years of age, although his appearance would have justified a guess that ho was not more than 60. He was erect, his step was acltve, his eyes very bright, his mind alert, and he gpoke not merely correct but elegant English, In the real meaning of that word, although often lapsing Into something like French Idiomatic expressions. "When I have time to UiluK a little.' laid M. Tetedoux, "I permit myaelf to reflect upon what might have bnjin my career if I had not chosen differ ently when I was a young man. Let tne tell you what I chose, and then you may perhaps be able to say to me: 'Mr. Tetedoux, you did not make any mistake.' "When I was a young man I was em ployed by a very rich Russian noble manoh, Tery rich aa tutor for two at hi aona. "There came to Moscow to Ing la opera three of the greatest alngera the world has ever known. These were Mme. GrtBl, Mario ah, there was a tenor auch as never was before or 1U be and Tamberllk. I went one night to the opera. 1 was e;.. -hunted. That night I could not slei ,. So I went every night, so long ai iiese three sang In tho opcia at 1 cow. I lived In the air; 1 said to 1 self: 'You must bo a great musician You must go to Italy and study.' "So, a few days later, 1 went to the nobleman, and said: 'I go'iniiu-diate-Jy to Italy. I go to study music. I am a born musician. I cannot remain here to teach any longer.' "Then he said to me: 'M. Tetedoux, if you will remain with me two years, until you have prepared my two sons for the university, at the end of that time I will give you much money. I will not tell you how much, but I will give you so much money that after wards you will not find it necessary to teach ; you will bo a gentleman, you will have enough for Hie. You know me, that when I say I will give you much money 1 will keep my promise.' " 'I know you will keep your prom ise,' I said to him in reply, "but what Is money to me? If I learn to be a musician, then I will make money. I must go to Italy.' "So I went to Italy to study, and I learned some other things than music, learned lifter somo time that, whilo I knew everything that anyone could learn about music, 1 could not sing liko a great artist. Therefore, what remained? I must teach. And I have been teaching for nearly CO years. All that time I have been pulling the duvil by the tail. That Is a saying In France which anyone uses who Is hard up. I have made a living. I have educated my children. But 1 have pulled the devil by the lull all the time. Pur-1 haps, if I had stayed with the noble man aud received much money from him, I should not have worked so hard, but perhaps I should not have lived so long."

"Ericsson and one of the Delameters took him all over the Monitor. He , wax intensely interested in the revolv ing tower and warmly approved of the mechanism by which it was made to revolve. The tower Is absolutely impugnable, in my opinion,' he de clared. 'I don't believe a shot could hit it pquaiv; any blow would glance off of it.' 'Lieut.

There tust l;o some pluce from which the jilloi and the commander can look out upon the waters so as to guide the vessel, either for navigation or Into battle. "Krisccon took my cousin along the passageway beneath the deck to a point very near tho bow of the little boat, and then pointed to u littlee low-er-liko projection reaching only about two feet above deck. "'That's where the pilot or com mander will stand," he said. 'That's your post when you are In battle.' "Ieut.

"Sure enough," continued the rear admiral's cousin, "when Lieut.

The newest method of growing hair on bald heads is by electricity. It Is said to be more effective than any i process hitherto known, ami promptly checks a tendency to falling hair though of course when baldness has reached Its final stage nothing will help, and even the electric current does not avail, the roots being dead. For the purpose in question a cur rent is applied to an exceedingly high voltage, but of small amperage. This Is not so hard to understand as might be imagined. Voltage is a term of pressure. When water is flowing out of a faucet one might call the rate of flow the voltage and the size of the stream the amperage. In the case of the bald-headed man who seeks elec trical treatment only a small quantity of electricity is employed, but it is ap plied at high pressure. The result is a vigorous stimulation of the scalp and the roots of the hair. If the latter have any vitality left in them the bald place will soon he cov ered by a downy fuzz, and, healthy conditions being restored, a becoming hirsute thatch will take the place of the erstwhile bare expanse of cranium a source of thankfulness to the pa tlent.

Cover lamps and all gas and elec tric lights with shades made from red, white and blue crepe tissue puper and for stools and divans have large pumpkins; they are very comfortable and are admirably adapted for the purpose. The usual refreshments are served with the addition of pumpkin "chips" and the bonbons In the na tional colors. To make pumpkin chips, which are quite a novelty, select a deep colored pumpkin, peel and slice very thin: to each pound of chips add a pound of sugar and a gill of lemon Juice, with the grated lemon rind; stir well nnd let them stand over night; cook very slowly until tender; then skim the chips out, let them stand two days to get firm, then put them in a jar with just enough sirup to keep them moist.

Cross on Flodden Field Memorial Unveiled by Sir George Douglas I the Outcome of a Joint Effort by Engllh. Although Flodden waB fought close tpon 400 years ago it is only during the present week that there has been unveiled a monument erected upon tho Kite approximately of the center of the battlefield. "To the Braye of Both Nations" Ollin Hostts. Nunc Fratrcs. Much confusion, write a correspon dent of the Westminster (iazette, has arisen heretofore from the presence of the reputed Sybil's Well with its Inscription on Flodden Hill among the trees above Blir.kbonny, where It had been placed, or rather misplaced, by the late MarchloneFS of Waterford with entire Ui. regard of historical ac curacy. The prevailing misapprehension con cerning "King Stone," another up posltltlou site memorial consisting of In unhewn column, hus probably been perpetuated by If it did not originate In Scott's notea to "Marmlon," in which it is alleged to mark the spot where James fell. As a matter of fact this was a very ancient tribal gathering or trysting stone transport eel from some distance either me chanically or by glacial action and is situated about three-quarters of a milo northward from tho locality of tho final- Bcene of the battle. The Memorial Cross, whic h was un veiled by Sir (ieorgo Douglas, Is the outcome of a Joint effort by Knglish men and Scotsmen from both sides of tho border. Tho Idea of marking tl.D slto near where the closing trag edy ol the battle took place originated three years ago with thi Berwick shire Naturalists club. With regard to tlio 11 11 tubers that took part in Flodden, although the Scottish army assembled in August on the Borough Moor of Edinburgh is computed to have numbered in all 1 tain probably more than 35,000. But these comprised the flewer of the Scot army. The number of the two forces which faced one another, though at first largely in favor of the Scots, were probably pretty well equalized after the dramatic disap pearance of Home and Utility's divis ion of 8,000 to 10,000 men shortly aft er the beginning of the battle. Tho arm mostly used by the Scots was a kone and sharp spear fifteen feet long. Targets also were carried by them and when tho spears failed they fought with "great unci sharp swords." Flodden was tho last field upon which the bows of yew and dothyard shafts were employed by the Kngllsh. One Stipulation.

The light Is cut oft at 11:00 p. m., when It is supposed everybody is in bed. The authorities, however, discov ered a number of clubmen who were "afraid to go home In the dark" and who kicked about having the lights extinguished at eleven. To meet their demands the authorities have attached penny ln-the-slot devices to the light poles. A tired clubman going home In the dark after eleven can now tumble his way to an electric light pole, drop a penny In the slot and light his way home. If he Uvea far from hi club two successive pennies will do the trick. Electricity Displace Gasoline. The old-style gasoline lights which have been used In Central park are to be displaced with 1.400 or more than twice as many electric lamps. A very artistic lamp pose haa been designed for the nuw lamps. One of the objections to the gasoline lamps was the fnct that the leakage of the oil ruined the grass around these lamp posts. Furthermore, the lamp lighters did much damage by making short cuts through the (lower beds along their routes from one lamp to another. IVfivv ,r-pi:cat:;n of Electricity.

The light pusses through the glass of the mir ror, meets the metal backing, and then bounds from It. This bounding of the light from the metal surface is called reflection, ami mirrors are said to re fleet. St. Nicholas. Wireless on Ocean Vessels.
