The Christinas hater may be made happy. He can have his wish and “go somewhere where there isn’t any Christmas. ’ ’ He will not have to die to do it either, but he will have to be a good sailor in order to fully enjoy his paradise, which is not on earth. It is on water. Let him start on his ►“— search from Vancouver, B. C., on Dec. 18 in the direction of the orient. As the days pass and he comes nearer and nearer the 25th of the month he may begin to feel uneasy and think himself the victim of a joke. Even as late as bedtime on Dec. 24 he may feel resentful over what he fears is a wild goose sail. He may fall asleep thinking of the disagreeable things he will do next day just because it will be Christmas, but he will be disap pointed, for when he wakes in the morning he will find it the 26th of December. The 25th’is not and has not been. It seems to have passed in the night. It is gone completely— K but where ? An experienced naviga tor explains the lapse thus : 1 “In just about the middle of the Pacific ocean is the one hundred and eightieth degree of longitude, and when that imaginary line is reached the westward traveler drops one day outof his calendar for the year. That line crosses the antipodes, or point on the earth’s surface which is precisely < f , opposite to Greenwich, England, the place at which by common consent of * all nations the counting of time be gins. At noonday, when the sun is directly overhead at Greenwich, at other points to the westward the time will be earlier by one hour for each 15 degrees of longitude, so that when 190 degrees is reached it will be midnight. “Twelve hours have thus been gain ed, and the other twelve hours would be added if the journey around the globe were completed. So by univer sal agreement the 25th of December would be dropped by all navigators reaching the fatal line on the previous day, and travelers would be cheated 1 out of their Christmas at the only place on the earth’s surface where a thing could happen.” — Mon- Via/ Star. KING HEBOD’B BOOSTEB. ■-Ever since that first Christmas eve has crowed all night long on the anniversary to keep away evil , spirits, for the cock is a holy bird and • a knowing one. There is a pleasant tale of him and St. Stephen, the first martyr, whose day is Dec. 26, close k by his dear Lord’s. St. Stephen was King Herod’s steward, it seems, who served him in the kitchen and at table. One night as he was bringing in the boar’s head for his master’s dinner he saw the star shining over Bethlehem. Immediate ly he set down the huge platter and , exclaimed: “No longer, Herod, will I be thy servant, for a greater King than thou is born.” “What aileth thee?” cried the king wrathfully. “Do you lack meat or drink that you would desert my ser vice for another’s?” i “Nay,” anwered Stephen ; “Hack neither meat nor drink, but the Child that is born this night is greater than all of us, and Him only will I serve.” “That is as true,” quoth Herod, smiting the table with his fist, “as that this roast cock on the platter shall crow before us.” Hardly were the words out of his mouth when the cock stretched his neck and crowed lustily, “Christus natus est!” At this proof that Steph en’s words were true Herod was so angry that he made his soldiers take Stephen outside the walls of Jerusalem und stone him to death. And this is the reason why unto this day St. Stephen is the patron of stonecutters. — Lippincott's Magazine. A CHBISTMAB WASHING. “In giving Christmas presents to children,” said Mrs. Frederick Schoff, the president of the National Mothers’ Congress, ‘ ‘our first aim should be to transport, to overjoy, to enrapture. “I once knew a little girl who, on fire with excitement, rushed in from her bedroom to see her presents on Christmass morning and after one look burst into disappointment and disgust. “It was some such experience, I have no doubt, that had befallen a little girl friend of mine. “ ‘Are you going to give me any thing for Christmas ?’ she said one day to her aunt. “‘Yes, if you’re good,’ the aunt replied. “The little girl gazed at her aunt with wistful earnestness. Then she said: “ ‘Please, auntie, then, nothing useful.’ ” —Cincinnati Enquirer. Small Boy—“Do you see that big drum in the window?” Storekeeper —“Yes, my lad,” Small boy— “ Well, you keep it under the counter for a few days. Santa Claus will be around here to get it for me.” ‘ ‘The Uppertens lead an ideal ‘fam ily life.’ ” “Do thej’never quarrel ?” “Never. She is in Europe, he at Saratoga, and the children are with their grandmother.” Democrats are delightful and Re publicans refreshing at least once a year, as they strike hands across the non-partisan board —the only one of its Hnd! The power behind the holiday throne is probably referred to by Hey wood in : “Her that ruled the roast | in the kitchen.” Correspondence Baltimore County Union. SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY. A New Idea for Safeguarding Ships—Ar gon EaeUy Obtained—Wart Infectloue nese—Painless Slaughtering—Primitive Qae-Lighting—A Fan Problem Solved— Sterilization Near Bolling—Pneumonia from Water—Cheap Aluminum. The Ingenious plan by which Debriz.a French inventor, measures the distance of an invisible vessel depends upon the difference In the veloc ity of sound waves, which travel about 1100 feet per second, and of Hertzian waves, the passage of which Is practically instantaneous. The re ceiving station—which may be a lighthouse on shore—has a train of clockwork that moves a pointer over a dial one division per second. A sound wave from gun or whistle and a Hertzian wave are started simultaneously from the ship, and the Hertzian!wave .sets the clockwork in motion, while the receiving observer notes the position of the pointer when the sound arrives. The number of dlvisious'passed over multiplied by the sound velocity per second gives the ves sel's distance. A suggestion Is that lighthouses send out Hertzian and sound signals at regular intervals, wlth.,distingulshing peculiarities to indicate the stations, and then any vessel having the simple receiver necessary could determine its position at any .time. •** A simple method of obtaining argon in consid erable quantity has been worked out by Fischer and Binge, German chemists. A powdered mix ture of 90 per cent, of calcium carbide and 10 per cent, of calcium chloride was heated to 800° C., and after sufficient circulation over this both oxygen and nitrogen were completely absorbed from the air. The so-called crude argon remain ing—.oo9B7 by volume of the air used— was a mix ture containing 99.75 per cent, of argon and 0.26 per cent, of helium, neon, krypton and xenon. In two days about three gallons of crude argon waa obtained. Whether warts spread by contact baa been much discussed. A Glasgow physician mention* that a maid with many warts on bands and arms was employed In a certain family, and warta soon appeared on the hands of the three chil dren. The youngest, a boy of 6, with a habit of biting the fingers, developed two warts on the lip and one in the mouth. **• In Germany, where the retail meat dealer is usually his own butcher, efforts are being made —as elsewhere—to substitute humane slaughter ing for the old-time practices that have caused much suffering. Saxony is taking the lead, and now has strict laws forbidding bleeding until tbe animals have been made unconscious. Cattle and other animals are stunned by a blow in tbe center of tbe forehead, usually with something more certain than the hammer or axe of a few years ago. Many butchers apply the slaughter ing mask, which covers tbe eyes and has a sharp bolt that is driven Into the brain by a single blow from a wooden hammer; but leas strength and skill are required in apparatus using powder one of these being in the form of s tube like a telephone receiver that projeots a bolt when tbe cartridge Is exploded by gentle tapping, while another fires a sharp-pointed bullet instead of the bolt. An improved instrument just intro duced into England is the poleax gun, which has a steel barrel in place of tbe striking end of tbe ordinary poleax, with a wire through the wooden handle.for pulling the trigger. In Ger man, Italian and other cities, abattoirs are pub lic institutions, where butchers go to slaughter their animals under municipal supervision. •* Home-made gas from cork refuse is used by Spanish peasants In the cork-oak region. As de scribed by L. Lodian, tbe process consists In filling several large tea-kettles with tbe waste i bark, and placing each in turn over the fire dur ing the evening, burning tbe volatile gas as It escapes from the spouts. The carbonized resi due forms tbe fine black-brown pigment known to commerce as “Spanish brown.” The punkah, or large fan so necessary for se curing a comfortable nap In tropical India, Is operated by a native servant. Attempts to drive it mechanically have failed, but success at last Is claimed for an electrically-driven punkah that, by means of a lathshaped spring, gives tbe jerking or needed to keep away the insects. .% In the sterilization process of Baron A. T. Pfeiff, of Stockholm, milk is heated to 200° Fab,, and this is claimed to be more effective than ordinary Pasteurization at a considerably lower temperature, while the peculiar flavor imparted by boiling is almost—lf not completely—avoided. ’ "A careful microscopic test of different samples of five drops each was made at Stockholm. Tbe samples of raw milk showed 1,120,000 bacteria, the sample of the same milk which had been Pasteurized at 158° still contained 2,200 bacteria, but no organisms at all could be discovered in the milk treated by the Pfeiff process. The lactic acid bacilli beiDg totally destroyed, the milk remains sweet and fresh much longer than untreated milk. In a demonstration plant now being tried in England, tbe apparatus includes a Alter for removing dirt, a heater in which the milk is circulated In concentric passages with steam between them, a slightly rounded surface over which the milk flows in open air to aerate it, and a cold-water cooler for reducing tbe temperature to 58°. •** In the singular experience reported to a Paris medical society by Drs. Cbauffard and Widal, a man and his wife were taken with pneumonia within a few hours of each other, and the dis ease ran an almost identical course in each case. Their Illness began on a day Id June following one on which they drank much cold water from a well. One could not have taken the disease from the other, as is usual In family epidemics, and common unfavorable surrounding could hardly have had a simultaneous effect. That pneumonia germs from tbe well water inocula ted the patients seemed to be the only conclu sion possible. *•* Early difficulties having been overcome, alum inum is now rolled even thinner than tin-foil. As tin is eight times as heavy and now costs twice as much per pound, aluminum foil is likely to replace tin-toll for wrapping food and other uses, while aluminum in other forms is taking the place of copper.

No pipes or pumps. No needle valve. No packing. No foundation required; will run anywhere. Is held in place by four lag screws. Speed from 200 to 600, which increases; 12-inch pulley to 36 inch. No counter shaft is needed to get the diflerent speeds. One oil cup oils automatically. We do not turn gasoline off or on to start or stop. Power rated with steam; not compared with other gasoline engines and has less than one-quarter as many parts and is made where quality counts. Not a drop of water is used. Will not freeze up in winter or burn up in summer. No dampness to sweat through the cylinder and rust it when not in use. If your cylinder rusts inside it is ruined and you don’t know why. It will start the same ip winter as in summer. Its speed range and oil device aDd absence of large and heavy wheels make it longer lived than any other type of engine by many years. It cannot wear runs in oil. The New-Way is the Only Air-Cooled Engine in the World that is Made In All Sizes and Guaranteed to Develop its Full Rated H. P. for Any Length of Time in Any Climate and Not Over-Heat. It is a well known fact that there is no way to cool water but by air. All engines are cooled by air, directly or indirectly. Water will stay hot for a long time when put in a rubber bag, so air cannot come in contact with it. The aggressiveness of the water cool agents will convince you that he yelps from fear. Mention it to him when he calls and watch the sore spot develop. Take no Chances and Investigate the Merits of the New-Way. We have no signed orders for engines; they are sold on their merits. You take them on free trial and pay for them if you like them better than the money they cost. Is it fair? See it before you buy. jr. & co., Aug. l-tf]i FORREST STREET, COR. HILLEN, BALTIMORE, Md.
