HOUSES BUILT IN MANILA.
Ston« Does Not Flgnre in the Construc
tion of Upper Storied.
The sfey-scraping tower of stone and
iron which is becoming so common an
eyesore in American cities has not in
vaded that land of the earthquake and
the typhoon, the Philippine Islands,
and is not likely to do so soon. These
perilous visitants govern the charac
ter and the size of the houses, which
are very rarely more than two stories
in height, even in, the best quarters of
Manila. Of these the ground floor i&
used as a coach house or to lodge the
native servants. It is apt to be too
damp for the family, who live on the
upper floor, which is divided into a
spacious hall, dining and reception
rooms, and bed and other apartments.
The kitchen is opten a separate build
ing, with a roofed pasäage leading to
the house. Besides it is the bathroom,
an apartment much in demand among
the Filipinos, with whom cleanliness
is one of the chief virtues and bathing
a daily duty.
These houses were formerly of stone,
but since the great earthquake of .1880
only wood has been permitted in the
second stories. Thexe are fitted with
sliding windows all around, to permit
the freest entrance of air. At the same
time, to keep out the hot glow of the
sunlight, glass is replaced in the win
dows by translucent sea&hells, through
which only a modicum of light can fil
ter. Corrugated iron roofs are com
mon, but they are very hot. To ob
viate this, many roofs are covered with
a thin layer of nipa-palm thatching,
which is cooler, though dangerous in
case of fire.
NOTABLE MEN AND WOMEN.

Dr. Thomas McClelland, the new
president of Knox College, was presi
dent of Tabor College several years
ago. At that time he wanted a rail
road to connect Tabor with the rest

terms to the Burlington.
Major D. W. Whittle, who is said to
be dying in East Northfield, Mass., is
one of the be3t -known evangelists in

Count Tolstoi, the famous Russian
novelist, neither drinks, smokes nor
eats meat. It Is his boast that he does
not possess a single article he could
possibly dispense with; and he has
even refused to receive a bicycle as a
present, on the ground that it is a
luxury. His recreations are chess and
lawn tennis, at both of which he is

Opening Cans with Safety.
With the majority of can-openers it
is no pleasant task to cut the tin which
allows the contents of the can to be
removed, and oftentimes there is dan
ger of injury to the hands from the
slipping of the cutter, allowing the
hand to scrape across the jagged edges
of the tin. A man at Cairo, 111., has
designed an implement with which
cans may not only be opened rapidly,
but with entire safety to the operator.
It consists of a spring-controlled ver
tical rod, having a cutting blade of pe
culiar shape attached to the curved
upper end, with a foot lever controlling
the movement of the rod. The machine
may be placed on the kitchen table in
a position convenient for use. The can
to be opened is placed on the table
under the cutter, and by depressing the
treadle the cutter Is forced into the top
of the can, the construction of the
blade being such hat the sharpened
point first punctures the top, when the
beveled edges finish the work by a
shearing cut. This machine will be
found especially useful in hotels,board
ing houses and restaurants, where
large quantities of panned goods are
used at certain seasons of the year.—
