SHELVED HIS INVENTION. 'An Experience "Wnleh Taneht tie Mechanical Expert a Leiion. One of the best mechanical engineers In New Orleans told an Interesting 6tory apropos of the tribulations of in ventors. "About three years ago," he said, "I got up a little device that greatly simplified the working of a certain type of pump. I took out patents that cost me In the neighbor hood of ?300, including attorney's fees, and finally submitted the thing to a big manufacturing concern in the north. The proprietors at once con ceded 'the merit of the invention and offered me $500 down and a royalty of $125 on each one used. The cash pay ment amounted to nothing, for It really fell short of covering my time and ex penses, but the royalty was generous, and I figured It out that it would yield me an income of $3,000 or $4,000 for several years perhaps longer, it de pended on how soon something better entered the field. '"Accordingly, I accepted. the proposi tion and transferred all my right Now, how much do you think-1 actually re ceived? Not a penny! No, I haven't been cheated; at least, all the accounts have been perfectly straight. The trouble is they never put the device on the market. They simply stuck the patents and drawings in a pigeonhole and there they remain to this day. "Why did they do it, did you ask? To save money. The public Is very well suited with their pump as It stands, and it Is doubtful If they could get any more for it with my improvement add ed. Such a step would merely cut down the net profit, so they prefer to let well enough alone. It was necessary, of course, to get my Invention safely shelved, or it might have been taken up by some enterprising rival, and the only earthly reason for spending $500 on the thing was to put it out of the way. It was rather rough on me, to be sure, but the experience was valu able, and I won't get caught that way again." New Orleans Times-Democrat. GLASSES FOR THE EYES. The Besion They Are "Worn by So i'T-JUany Persons KbivadsyB The question is often asked, .particu larly by those who can recall the cus toms and experiences of 25 years ago, "Why do so many persons nowadays wear glasses?" The answer Is easy. "The Increase in the number of spec tacles worn is not to be regarded as an evidence of modern degeneration of the eyes, but rather 'that a long felt necessity has been met" For it should be remembered that within the past quarter of a century much has been learned about the value of glasses, and the range of their application and use fulness has been enormously extended. Of course the eyes need more help now than formerly, as the amount of work they are required to do Is much greater than 'at any previous period in the world's history. The sewing machine and many other inventions of its class save the labor of the hands only to add to that required of the eyes. New employments, new amusements and new fashions are continually be ing Introduced to increase the exac tions laid upon these sensitive and delicate organs. The steady decrease of Illiteracy, together with the general cheapness of literature and a spread of a taste for it, the enormous circula tion of novel, magazine and newspa per, the ever increasing use of artificial illumination, all combine to overtax the eyes and to weaken or possibly de stroy the sight unless the required aid and protection be supplied through every means at our disposal. Thus it happens that the some time luxury of properly adapted glasses has come to be recognized and understood by very many of the present generation as one of the real necessities of their lives.

He would press you down with his hand on your head and tell you In an under tone to stand up. Mr. Macready was a terribly nervous actor. Any little thing which happened unexpectedly ir ritated him beyond endurance. One night at the Park "Macbeth" was the play. Mrs. Sioman, an old fashioned actress, dressed Lady Mac beth in the manner which prevailed in her early life, in black velvet, point lace and pearl beads. ' In the murder scene part of his dress caught on the tassels of her pearl girdle. The string broke, the beads fell to the floor softly with a pretty rhythmic sound, distinct ly heard through the Intense silence of the scene. This so exasperated Mr- Macready that he was almost frantic'until, with the final lines of the scene, "Wake, Duncan with the knocking, oh! Would thou couldst," he threw Mrs, Sioman off the stage, with words which I hope SAVED fmn THE KNIFE ANB GRAVE.

There is danger in the porous charac ter of plaster ceilings, which are often very thin indeed. The ordinary celling is "only a porous diaphragm permeable by gases with considerable freedom." The vitiated air of sitting rooms therefore frequently finds Its way through into bedrooms. The Brit ish Medical Journal asks any iskeptic to "compare his bodily and mental sen-j sations after sleeping in such atrooqr and In one situated over a similar room well ventilated and not occupied or illuminated by gas during the even-i ing."

PhilacldpUb AWAITING THEIR DOO-V There was once upon a tune, near the western coast of Ireland, a romantic val ley inhabited by a few peasants. Xorah was the prettiest girl in the little village. Bhe was-tie pride of her old father and mother and the admiration of every youth who beheld her. Norah knew how to make the homeliest chamber look cheerful, and the honeysuckle round the easement was taught by her hand to twine more gracefully than elsewhere. There was but one spring of water in this valley. It was a little well of the brightest and clearest water ever seen, which bubbled up from the golden sand and then lay calmly sleeping in a basin of the whitest marble. From this basin there did not appear to be any outlet. The water ran into it incessantly, but no one could detect that any part of it escaped again. It was a fairy well. There was a tradition concerning it which had time out of mind been handed down from parent to child. It was cov ered with a huge stone, which, though apparently very heavy, could be removed with ease by the hand of the most aeli cate girl. And it was said to be the will of the fairy who presided over it that all the young girls of the village should go thither evtry evening after sunset, re move the stone and take from the mar ble basin as much water as would be suf ficient for the use of each family during the ensuing day. Above all, it was understood to be the fairy's strict injunction that each young maiden, when she had rilled her pitcher, should carefully replace the stone. If at any time thi? were to be neglected, the careless maiden would bring ruin on her self and all the inhabitants of the valley, for if the morning sun ever shone upon the water destruction would follow. Korah was bound to be beloved, and soon a stranger youth came to the valley, a soldier, one who had seen the world. He was clad in armor, and he talked of brighter scenes. He dazzled the poor girl's eye, and he won her heart, and when she went at sunset to fetch water from the fairy well Coolm was always at her side. Her old parents could not approve of such an attachment. They reproved their child for the first time in their lives and forbade her to meet the stranger. She wept, but she promised to obey them, and, that she might avoid a meet ing with her lover, she went that evening to the well by a different path to that which she had been accustomed to take. She removed the stone, and, having filled the pitcher, she sat down by the side of the well and wept bitterly. She heeded not the hour. Twilight was fast fading into the darkness of the night, and the bright stars which studded the heavens directly over her head were reflected in the crystal fountain at her feet. Her lover stood before her. "Oh, come not here," she cried. "Come not here. I have promised not to meet you Had I returned home when my task was done we should never have met. I have been disobedient. Oh, why did I ever see yon? You have taught me how to weep." "Say not so, dearest Norah," replied the young soldier. "Come with me." "Never, neverl" she emphatically ex claimed as she hastily arose and advanc ed from the well. "I, who never broke my word, have broken it tonight. I said I would not meet you, and we have met." She uttered this in an agony of tears, walking wildly forward, while Coolin, with her hand clasped in both of his, walked by her side endeavoring to pacify her. "Xdur fault, if it be one," said he kind ly, "was involuntary. Your parents will forgive you, and when they know how tenderly I love you they will no longer reject me as their son. You say you cannot leave them. Well, well, I per haps may stay here, may labor for them and for you." Softly opening the wicket, she stole to her own chamber and soon fell asleep, full of fond' thoughts of the possibility of her parents' sanction to her lover's suit She slept soundly for several hours. At last, awaking with a wild scream, she started from her bed. "The well, the well!" she cried. "I neglected to replace the stone. It can not yet be morning. No, no, no! The gray dawn is just appearing. I will run. I shall be in time." As she flew along the well known path the tops of the eastern hills were red with the near approach of sunrise. Is tuat the first sunbeam that gilds yonder mountain? Norah had now reached a spot from whence, looking downward, she could see the well at the distance of a few hun dred yards. She stood like a statue, her eyes were fixed, one hand grasped her forehead, with the other she pointed for ward. The unclouded morning sun was shin ing brightly on the spot. The spring, once so gentlfe, was now sending forth a foaming torient, which was rapidly in undating tho valley. Already the alarmed villagers were rushing from their cabins, but Norah did not move. Her hand vias still pointed toward the spot, but she appeared uncon scious of danger. Still the foaming tor rent poured forth, and the water ap proached the spot where she stood. Coolin, who had been seeking her ev erywhere, now ran toward her. He bore her in his arms up a hill which was near them. Still the torrent became wider and deeper. When they reached th summit of the bill, it appeared to be a wooded island. Water surrounded them everywhere, and their resting place became gradually smaller and smaller. Clasped in each other arms, the lov ers awaited their doom. The waters still rose higher and higher. The island be came indistinct; it was a speck; it was gone. The cause of the calamity having ex piated her error, the wrath of the fairy was appeased. The waters rose no more, but the beautiful valley of the fairy well now lies buried under the clear waters of the lake of "Killarney. London Even ing News. The Pronunciation Explained. "There is a family In Virginia," says Collier's Weekly, "the name of which ib spelled 'Enroughty,' but it is pro nounced 'Darby.' This fact, familiar to many Americans, happened to be told by Miss Hayward at a dinner in London at which Mr. Kipling was present, when he broke in: 'You have saved my reputation by telling that You are the first man, woman or child who could back me up in it.' "The explanation of tho peculiarity is that the Derbys were an English fami ly who settled in Virginia In the colo nial days. One of the sons, the tradi tional Wrick sheep of the family, was left a share In his father's will on con dition that he changed his name. He changed his written name to En roughty, but continued to call himself Derby. "On hearing this explanation Mr. Kipling said, 'I think I will change my name to Smith.' 'You can spell it Smith If you like,' was the reply, but It will always be pronounced Kipling,' a remark which caused him to look 'as unfelgnedly pleased as a boy.' " In IUinoIa' Earlr Days.
