Th» Roptiics Were Frozen Stiff, but That Didn't Harm Them. A naturalist once told how in a thicket on a mountain side he saw a man kill a rattlesnake. He beat the life out of it with a club and contin ued the pounding till it was mangled beyond recognition. When the nat uralist remonstrated the man said, "Boss, you can't kill a rattlesnake too dead." s,Ee# Alcohol Water Pcrtam Ask your doctor.

All hands were busy with the storm. and the snakes were forgotten. When the mate thought of them and went to look after their condition he found them frozen stiff and apparently as dead as the proverbial doornail. The dealer for whom the mate had brought them came on board the fol lowing day. He professed great dis appointment over the loss of his In tended purchase, but offered to take the snakes away as a kindness to the mate. He gathered them in his arms like so much firewood and carried them borne. But a rival dealer after ward told the officer that plenty of warm water had resuscitated the anakes..and,..(liat they had,- been_sold DECEMBERCLEARANCESALE Of Ready-to*JVear Garments Owing to the lateness of the season we find we havj more garments than we ought to have and our •'motto" not to carry any goods over until next season.

BISMARCK DAILY TRIBUNE WOMA N RIC IN Playhouse of CiiildSiood Furnish es Necessary Inspiration. PROCESS TAKES 209 MINUTES Mrs. Frances D. Shaw of Chicago. Forced to Earn Living For Children, Revolutionizes the Business—Auto matic Manufacture Saves Time, La bor and Material. A woman has revolutionized the in dustry of brlckinaking. Her name is Mrs. Frances D. Shaw of Chicago, and after eight years of invention and dis covery she is ready to give to the world a brick mixture and a kiln where it takes 200 minutes to dry. burn and cool bricks as against be tween four and five weeks in the old way where a brick enters one end of a 200 foot kiln and conies out cool enough to pack into (he freight car for shipping, handled once iu that time. Instead of eighteen times, as In the old way. Moreover, she has invented an enam eling machine which feeds, uniformly distributes the enamel and brushes the sides of the brick on the same journey. She has perfected a kiln wherein the most delicate pottery may be Ural in the open lire, producing the most beau tiful of shades and reducing the cost of production to 10 per cent of the old expense. The makers of bricks have come to look upon Mrs. Sl'aw as one of the wonders, but the country at large is Rolng to be immensely interested in a little mother whose inventions were born of necessity. The story dates back to Mrs. Shaw's playhouse days—back when she was a girr-of twelve and as Francos, daugh ter of Edward Dowdell, she played in the back yard of the family's residence in Iown Falls, la. Frances bad a min iature residence in the garden which left only one thing to be desired in the mind of its young mistress—its floor was of soft coal cinders. Playhouse Furnishes Idea. One day a pair of garden vases came as a gift from an old chemist friend, To prevent the play of the weather upon the two lawn ornaments the old 'chemist treated the outside to a coat- 1 ing of solution of silicate of soda, oth erwise known as liquid glass. The proceeding \v is of much interest to young Frances. She noticed that when a bit of the mixture dropped upon the ground it hardened. And then a bright thought came to her. This new mixture was the thing for a playhouse floor, and It was decided that the vases were to have a weather coat of less thickness that the cinder 1 floor of the tiny residence also might I bo covered. The mixture of the liquid glass with the coal ashes produced a flooring the like of which no play house ever before boasted. But three years later "little Miss Frances" left the playhouse to take charge of a home of her own—at fif teen—and with the family cooking, the making of clothes for the children who came and the general homemaking all else was forgotten until a decade ago, when she left Iowa to make her way for herself and her younger chil dren In Chicago. Mrs. Shaw cast about for something to do and began bringiug fresh butter and eggs in from the country and sell ing them. But one winter the butter in the storage house spoiled. Discovery an Accident. "It came to me," says Mrs. Shaw, "that hundreds of thousands of dollars must be wasted in this way every year and that there should be some manner of treating the tubs to prevent the de struction of the produce. All at once niv mind traveled back to my play house floor. I made some of the so lution, applying it hot to the cold tubs. But my butter was bleached perfectly white to the depth of about two inches all around, and it tasted like a soda biscuit. "I began studying the concoction of eome mixture whereby the deleterious elements might be eliminated and sought our good family friend, the late S. S. Kimbell, who was in the brick business in Porter, Ind. I wanted suf ficient heat and pressure from his ma chinery to drive the new mixture into the wood of the tub. '"That should be good to apply to trick,' said Mr. Kimbell, 'but I know It could not be done.' It gave me the Idea, however, and I kept experiment ing until in sheer accident one day I chanced upon the thing which made the brick itself. I knew I had a find and set to work to perfect it. That was eight years ago, and I've been working ever since." As to the whole system, the green bricks are placed on a car and run through the drying end of the kiln un til they reach the warming, heating and upper chamber. There they are passed on to the center of the fusing part of the kiln, where they are held at the temperature required for the various kinds of brick. The train travels at tlie rate of a foot a minute and carries tire brick right through to the fireboxes aad cooling chamber. The car makes Its exit through the rear of the sheds. Its brick cooled and ready for ship ment Canada Tenth In Shipping. Canada takes tenth place among the Mtfons in the world's shipping. FIFTEEN LARGEST ERN CITIES IN CENSUS. SOUTH 1910 P. Inc.

The following story of red tape Is hard to beat even In the very cradle of Prussian officialdom. Not long ago the head mistress of a high school for girls notified the authorites that there was a rat on the premises and asked that a man might be sent to kill it. The request was duly noted, but as the official rat catcher was not imnied': ately available the head mistress was advised to feed the beast in the mean time so that the rat catcher should in: make a fruitless journey. This she did for some weeks, and as the rat killer did not put in an appear ance she made a second application The original request, she was Inform ed, had been mislaid, but help would be sent in a few days. Weeks passed. and one day the rat was found dead and was buried in the garden in tin presence of the head mistress. A day or so later an official carrying a bundle of documents "in the matter of the rat" brought a message to the effect that the head mistress should take steps to destroy the rat at lie: own expense, as the official rat catcher could not come before the end of No vein her. T'pon being informed that the rat was dead and buried the official tired, but came back the next day ash ing for a written certificate to show that the rat was really dead, lie get it. and the administrative machine once more working smoothly. LEAVES RICHES TO COOKERY. I German Bachelor Single Because of Women's Culinary Ignorance. A remarkable will was left by Fran/, I Botor, a wealthy bachelor who died at I Grosswardein. Hungary, recently. 1S' I tor was known as a violent woman hater, but the cause of his antipathy was net fathomed until after iii death. In his will he explains that I: never married because modern woni'i are utterly ignorant of the principle. of cooking. He leaves his entire fortune to the municipality for the purpose of estab lishing a free cooking school in ori that young girls may be taught 1M.v. to prepare food In a civilized manner. The testator ironically observes tlr.t be bestows on his relatives the privi lege of daily free dinners tit the school. The Grosswardein municipality has accepted (he bequest and will at once begin the erection of the new cooking school. GALLOPING ARMY KITCHEN. British Government Arranges to Feed Tommy Atkins Well. The British soldier is notoriously fond of his rations and, like every other sol dier, is a poor fighter when bis meals do not appear with proper regularity. So that Tommy Atkins may not be kept a second late from his beef and tea the army has rigged up a novel "galloping kitchen," a cooker on wheels. which cooks as it goes and can rattle along on its gun carriage over the roughest roads a horse can take, the provender boiling away all the time. There is a boiler divided into four compartments, with a firebox below— nothing more. The arrangement could not be simpler, and it saves the annoy ance of setting up a whole cooking rut fit at every stop when the army is on a rapid march and also assures a men I to the detachment that is away from camp on a scouting or skirmishing ex pedition. MILAN PLANS A SKYSCRAPER Only Four Stories, but the Highest In Italy. Milan will be the first Italian city to have a "skyscraper." Such a struc ture seems somehow out of the pic ture in Italy, but one is about to be built in Milan of four stories, with hundreds of rooms. In most Italian cities it would be forbidden by law, as a house may be only as high as the width of the street in which it stands, which means in Italy in many cases extremely low houses. Should the experiment prove a success doubtless a way will be found to have the law changed. American Wood Essential. The kind of wood exclusively used In the manufacture of boot and shoe lasts in London is American rock maple. Electric Car Lighting Popular. Electricity has supplanted gas for car lighting in nearly all the state rail ways of Italy, Switzerland and Den mark. MILITARY ACCURACY. Exactness In Keeping Tab on the Movements of Soldiers. We hear much of the perfection of military organization abroad, but it Is doubtful whether any foreign war of fice follows with an accuracy greater than that displayed by our own war department I be movements of its of ficers. The following is an interesting ease In point: A young army officer who has seen service iu Ibis country and in the east was once with a scouting party in Ari zona. After two weeks in the desert his squad came to the railway near a small station. Within ten minutes a telegram from Washington was brought to him by the station agent. It asked if the ollleer wished to be transferred to one of the new artillery regiments then forming. He answered by telegraph that be would be ylad to enter either of them. Then with bis squad be set off again across the desert. It was six days later when they again struck the railway, fids time eighty miles from the point at which they had previously crossed it. but the officer's reply from the war depart ment wns awaiting him. It bad been telegraphed to every station within 200 miles. A more striking instance of accuracy occurred after I lie same olllcer's trans fer to tlie east. He was traveling home on Uvive, and, as the regulations require, he bad notified the department of the day. hour and probable route of his journey. After he bad been mi the train for eight hours at a small station the porter entered with a tele gram, asking if any one of his name wtis present. On opening the tele gram the oillecr found that it ordered him to detached duty. Exactness of detail could not be car ried much further.

Rhud Lumber Company You Can Work Near a Window Three Till It Got to be Second Nature Suffering Endless and Without Relief—Cuticura Made Skin as Clear as a Baby's. "If I had known of the Cuticura Remedies fifty vears ago it would have saved mo two hundred dollars and an immense amount of suffering. My dis ease (psoriasis) commenced on my head in a spot not larger than a cent. It spread rapidly over my body and got under my nails. The scales would drop off of me all the time and my suffering was endless and without relief. A thou sand dollars would not tempt me to have this disease over again, 1 am a poor man but feel rich to be free of what some of the doctors called leprosy, some ringworm, psoriasis, etc. I took and sarsaparillaa over a year and a half but got no cure. I cannot praise the Cuticura Itemediea too much. They made my skin as clear and free from scales as a baby's. All I used of them was two cakes of Cuticura Soap, three boxes of Cuticura Ointment and three bottles of Cuticura Kesolvent. If you had been there and said you would have cured me for two hundred dollars, you would have had tho money. I was covered with the scales but by using Cuticura I was soon as clear as any per son ever was. This was over twenty-two years ago and for a long time, through force of habit, I used to rub my hands over my arms and legs to scratch, but to no purpose I was well. I had scratched twenty-eight years and it got to be a kind of second nature to me. Dennis Downing, Waterbury, Vt„ November 27, 11)00."

GLAZING in winter when you have a Perfec tion Oil Heater. It is a portable radiator which can be moved to any part of a room, or to any room in a house. When you have a ERFJECT10] SMOKELESS I E A S Absolutely smokeless and odorlm you do not have to work close to the stove, which is usually far from the window. You can work where you wish, and be warm. You can work on dull winter days in the full light near the window, without being chilled to the bone. The Perfection Oil Heater quickly gives heat, and with one filling of the font burns steadily for nine hours, without smoke or smell. An indicator always shows the amount of oil in the font. The filler cap, put in like a cork in a bottle, is attached by a chain. This heater has a cool handle and a damper top. The Perfection Oil Heater has an aatomatlc-locldn0 flame spreader, which prevents the wick from being turned high enough to smoke, and is easy to remove and drop back, so the wick can be quickly cleaned. The burner body or gallery cannot become wedged and can be unscrewed in an instant for rewicking. The Perfection Oil Heater is finished in japan or nickel, is strong, durable, well-made, built for service, and yet light and ornamental. Dttltn Bmrymmn.
