Tka KUatrte Fountain In Lincoln Park, ChlcafOi The electrically illuminated foun tain at Lincoln Park, Chicago, baa been completed. Numerous jets ol water are projected skyward to vary ing height*, and are k*pt continually changing, rising and falling irregular ly, breaking and splashing, falling in •beets and breaking into spray wblie being illuminated with various color* V.t are continually changing, the ef fect produced sujrgeeting the idea of •battering rainbow* caught by a whirl wind. At Uaai some ot the jets leap full 100 iate the air, blowing for a time, while the falling drops sparkle in vari-cofored lights Itb tbe bril liancy of gam* of. the purest water. At that instant the streams will blend in a manner that suggests 'an iceberg, sparkling with its frosty crystals un der the beams of white light, then instantly changing to a beautiful em erald or deep crimson. At other times the colors change so rapidly that the mind becomes weary in the effort to recoil the names. For an hour tbe display continues ever-varying,, never the same for longer than a lew seconds, barely sufficient to allow Jthe mind to obtain the impression, not long enough to permit one to realize the real beauty Of the scene. The ever-verying changes of the forms produced by the jets in their varying irregularity* and. the play of the numerous colors, reminding one of the glimpse of fairyland as presented in the spectacular dramas. How is it all produced Simply enough. Below the reservoir which receives the water from the fountain is a room about thirty feet square having a cement floor* while theceling is but* seven feet above." A long, nar row.tunnel leads to this, and on .one side are arranged numerous pipes and valves for supplying and controlling the water that forms the jets. Around tlie sides of the room and through tbe center are numerous arc lamps, placed in a horozontal position, and fitted with silvered reflectors. Above the lamps are cylindrical tubes eighteen inches or more in diameter that lead above the surface of tbe water in the reservoir. Near the bottom of the reservoir the pipes that furnish the w* a,re laid, leading into the large tubes so that the jets and streams spout, upward from their mouths. A thick plate of glass in the tube pre vents the water from entering the room below. Beneath each tube is a lamp, the concentrated rays being pro jected through the plate glass. Be tween the lamps and tubes .are frame works carrying slides which contain large panes of different colored glass. Men stationed in different parts of the room.keep- changing the slides that produce the color in the water. 'Jfhe valves, which are of the lever type, are changed continually by men stationed there fdr that particular pur pose. There are fifteen arc lamps in the room, eaph under a separate tube.. Iricle lamptf use f1 incli carbotfs and are connected up in series. They are adjusted by the hand, but require very little attention to keep them in operation. An ladlaa'a Eaduraaa*. A young Indian limped into San Diego, Cat., the other day from Santa Ysaoel so crippled by rheumatism that he bad to use a crutch. He had been a week coming the fitty-four miles, with nothing to eat or drink except as he could reach ranch houses and beg for it. The roung fellow was barefooted, dressed in a checked shirt and. over alls, and wearing a rag of a felt bat He said his name was Jose Luis, and that he was 22 years of age. If he could go somewhere to get well and taken care of he expected to be able to return to work. Some one had given him a note to show the county hospital physician, but the Indian would not eo away from town until he could see Father Ubauh. He tl pt in the brush of the city park, waiting to find him at home. The priest had the hunsrry, but grate ful fellow fed, and to the father's ex pressions of commiserati on he smiled as cheerfully as though it had been no hardship to make the long journey afoot. He was very earnest in recalling Fether Ubach's recollec tion to his baptism into the church, and was very willing to go anywhere he advised. Quite Bafflel«nt. Different persons have different ideas as to be the best way of giving employment to their guests but there is one form of entertainment which was for some years very popular, but is now somewhat out of vogue. This is, the taking of guests to cemeteries, which, while often beautiful, and in a way full of interest, are liable to in spire melancboljr thoughts and sad memories. A young girl who had been paying several visits in an Eastern city, at last came to a bouse of a friend of her mother'* who had a daughter about the age of the guest. ••Now. if to-morrow is a pleasant day. we'il take a drive in tie after noon." said tbe young hostess the first eveniuir- "is there any particular place you'u iike to go?1 ••No. 1 think »ot," repled the guest. ••At least."she added, truthfully, should like to go anywhere exeept to the AeiQ«tery. I don't care about goiug liiere again, as I have been driven there,five times already." The Oideat Jul la Aaiertea. The old jail at York, Me., one of the conspicuous attraction* to summer visitors, is believed to be ,the oldest •tructure of its kind in America. It is said lo have been built in the, sixteen hundreds, and stands to-day practical ly unchanged, with its massive oaken doors, creaking hinges and locks and roill-aa* gratings. TO FROM .TORNADOES. Thar* No Sura Way Kxcapt to Flee t» tba Tornado Cava*. When trying to escape from a tor nado, says the lorum, never run to the northeast, east, or southeast. A ever take refuge in a forest or a grove' ol trees, or near any ob„ect that may be overturned by the wind. A frame building is safer than one built of brick or stone. The former is more elastic and holds together longer the latter goes down in the first crash, and the debris is whirled into a heap in the center of tbe foundation. In a frame structure the cellar is the safest place, but in a brick or stone building it is the inost perilous, in the former case the debris is carried away from the foundation, while in the latter in-, stance the cellar is filled with it. The tornado cave offers absolute security to life aud limb, and no means of protection can replace it for that purpose. As regards protection to property no building can be made sufficiently large, strong, high, or low to .resist the force of the tornado's vortex. There is no changing the path of tbe torna do by the employment of explosives or by artificial barrier. To contem plate the dispersion of the cloud by the use of an electrical contrivance is also idle. All buildings 'should be con structed as would de done without the knowledge of the tornado, and then protected by legitimate insurance. .Protection must be accomplished by organized capital, the safety of one be ing assured by tbe legitimate and successful co-operation of many. The writer strongly avocated this method of protection during his tornado investigations in the West in 1879, and now several million dollars' worth of property are thus Insured every year. THE DOO S+AYED. Uc Had a Baeong, and the Trala Hands Found It Oat A man and a dog boarded the train. When the conductor came along for his fare he said: ••That dog must go into the bag gage car." "Why vhas dot!"' queried the owner. ••Because it's the rule." •But my rule vas to et htm sthav here." ••He's got to go!" •Vhell, you take him." He was a whopper of a dog, and there was business in his eye. The conductor called the baggageman, but they had no sooner got hold than they had to let go. A brakeman was called in. but tendered his resignation rather than tackle the dog. The animal was seized again, and thia time he bit the conductor twice and the .baggageman three times, and fin ished off by nipping. the brakeman's leg. ••Yaw. you take him right away!" saifc.tl*0owner. butUhey didn't. Even whegi«a passenger came forward to in crease the number to four the dog stood them off. and as he was left in possession of the field the man ob served: •You vhas foolish to try. Vhy, last year dot dog preaks up a mass meeting in Toledo und bites oafer two hoonered men. Hta Fault. Inventors and explorers are often troublesome to lesser individuals. Ho# proud you must be of your hus band's invention," said some one to the wife of a talented mechanic. "Yes, I suppose I am," was the grudg ing reply, •but just now I am only re lieved at having the thing completed. For the last year I have been occupied in picking up wheels and screws, scat tered all over the house, and rubbing out drawings of cogs and cranks on the fly-leaves of books." Not long ago a mother looked over the shoulder of her little girl who was groaning about a difficult lesson. The book was open at the map of Africa, and the mother exclaimed: ••Why, how that map has changed since I was a child! Then it had only a few towns about the coast, and all the inlddlfe was a blank. We didn't have to learn much about the map of Africa in those days." ••I know it," cried the little girl. almost in tears, "and it's all the fault of that dreadful Mr. Stanley!" VFnndarful Treat In Washington. A young eastern tenderfoot, who is now in the State of Washington, writes thus to a frienu: "What do you think of trees 650 feet nigh? They are to be found in the unsur veyed townships near the foot of Mount Tacoma, and what is more, I have seen them and made an instru mental measurement of the result. There are lots of trees in that locality whose foliage is so far above the ground that it is impossible to tell to what family they belong except by the bark. Very few people know or dream of the immensity of our forest growth. I wish that some of our large trees could be sent to the world's fair at Chicago. We could send a flag pole, for instance, 400 feet high." That suggestion about a flag pole isn't half bad. The "pole" migh be hol lowed out and fitted up with an ele vator, and then we should have a feature at ouce unique and wonderful for the Chicago world's fair. How to Build Chimney*. Chimneys, to be safe from fire and draw well, should be not less than sixteen inches square inside and built up from the cellar. Use good brick with clay, instead of mortar, up to the comb. Plaster it inside with clay mixed with salt. Top with the best brick well wet and laid in cement. Do not let wood come too close to the brick, and don't let the stovepipe come nearer than eighteen inches to the ceil inc. THE OLD RELIABLE GROCERY, A. C. MILLIMAN, Proprietor.
