New Method That Promises to Give the Beet Results. An Ingenious method of preferring food has recently been derised which is baaed on the fact that powdered gelatin, or thin sheets of the same material, not only do not spoil, but •re capable of protecting incorporated substances from bacteria, moisture, and other agencies which bring about decomposition. Thus to make a con* centrated beef extract, tea or coffee, extract, soup, etc., the Mould Is mixed hot with 1 per cent of primary gela tin, which differs from the commercial article in not having the gluellke taste of the latter. After cooling a Jelly Is formed, and this is cut into thin films and dried by a current of cold air until it becomes brittle When this condition is reach ed the sheets are then reduced to a tine powder, which will keep Indefin itely. While It will absorb moisture It does not do so to a degree to oc casion decomposition, and the moist ure Is subsequently given off In dry air. The powder, while likely to cske. forms a brittle cake, not Interfering t. Ith its use. while It Is too hard for Insects. When placed In warm water It dissolves Immediacy, and Is thus ready for use. If seated above the temperature of boiling water before packing all disease or other germs will be killed, and to secure the best results the powder should be packed airtight. Such a concentrated food possesses many advantages, and Is susceptible of wide application, as Upon explorations —Harper’s Weekly. THE RETORT THAT BITES.

Joke Carried Too Far. ‘‘This artificial limb business la g®t ting to be something wonderful.” said George Moore, of the Gilsey house. ‘ When a man can wiggle the fingers of an artificial hand It is uncanny. Practical jokes of terrible effect a jre possible with the artificial limb, and th victim is such In the true sense of lb word. A man came In here not long ago and walked up to the clerk and in a friendly way reached across the count er to shake hands. Then he wheeled away and left his hand In the grip of the clerk. ‘The clerk fainted—actually faint ed. although he realized, I believe, that the hand he held was but an artificial one.

Some of the stories our Inspectors bring to us are hardly credible. "For instance, in the matter of ignorance of the most elementary kind of sanitation; "An inspector went one day to in spect an old house in the country. There was a good deal of smell about the old place. The inspector walked about sniffing. 14 ‘Dear me,’ he said, 'what an un pleasant odor. Can it be the drains?’ "The owner of the house shook his head positively. "Tt can’t be the drains,’ he said, because there ain’t none.’ ” —Sait Tribune. Coals to Newcastle. A visiting Scotchman whose name !s familiar as the manufacturer of a famous brand of whisky told an inter cstlng bit of American history the other night. The well known distiller asked if his companions could give the derivation of the term "fire water."’ No one could, and the Scotch man explained that it was his own brand of whisky which was first given to the Indians in the early days. On tasting it the Indians at once named it fire water. Their reasoning was very simple. “Where there is so much smoke,” they said, “there must be some fire.” Called to Book.

Some critics of Russian autocracy say that the Grand Duke Vladimir has some excuse for his hatred of popular movements and secret societies. His father. Alexander ll.—the man who on his accession to the throne at once made peace in the Crimean war and emancipated the serfs—was assatsl naled by nihilist bombs. The grand duke is said to have carefully studied the details of the history of the French revolution, w'th the express object of avoiding the perils and dangers of any such catastrophe in Russia, and ho is convinced that If Louis XVl.'s mlnlsitrs had been bolder they mtgh' htv« laved France ai & kingdom.
