Ions' before the little cinder-girl who had tin wicked sis ters, and wIiom' adventures pleased you so mueh in the story-book. Thou sands of years ago the little dark skinned boys and girls of Egypt lis tened to the real story from their mother's or their nurse's lips with the same interest and delight with which you read the adventures of the young girl whose fairy cod-mot her dressed her outso Won len'uily in silk and gold anil jave -her the tiny giass slippers that have been so famous ever since. Hut there were no cruel sisters in the first story; no niiee were changed by mayie into fray steeds, and no pumpkins became stately chariots. The good old godmother was left out, too, for an eagle did all the managing and carried the beautiful slipper over the silver sands and the gray old pyramids to the fascinated prinVe, who afterwards wooed and won its mistress. The storv has come down to us accompanied bv a sort of mouldering and exquisite perfume from ancient papyrus archives, which modern science litis learned to trans late from Egyptian hieroglyphics. In the first place her name was not Cinderella at all, but Nefertsu. which is quite as pretty, I think. Hie war, a beautiful Persian princess, who had been taken captive bv an Egyptian general and brought with the rest of his spoils to his home on the banks of the Nile. Persia wa- called in those lays the land of ilowers and glass slip pers, for nowhere else were there so many roses, and nowhere else did they manufacture glass slippers. Ne fertsu, though a slave, wore on her feet a pair of those wonderful crystal sandaN. Most wonderful 1 ail. they were so small ;!::it nobody but Nc fertsu could wear them. One day Nefertsu went with lier mistress to in the cool tanic in the garden. She left her glass slip tiers on the bank and walked .down among the callas ai'd lotus blossom-, with her pearly feet shining like ala baster in the water. Wnile they Sported in the current they saw an eagle swoop dov r; upon the shore and beiirittny s-omething bright it. its talons. "It is my s'ipper," said Nefertsu sorrowfully. "The eagle has carrieil it away." "Never mi.: I," -.aid her mistress, "it may brimr you good luck. An eagle, you know, is a symbol of sov ereignty. " "1 am glad of that, fertsu, and she ciieekJ hobbled home as best one foot slipper less. Now at Memphis " answered Ne il her tears and she might with reigned King Ramesis in great glory, lie was a young man and ha 1 just come to the throne. He was brave and handsome, too, but he was not married. "Women are ail ninnies," he said to his councilors. ' It is better to reign alone than .reign with one you do not love. " The king sat oik evening in the cool portico of his palace overlooking the Nile. The last rays of the sun light quivered on the sands of the Lybian desert. Delicious breezes rose from the river scented with the odor of callas, palm groves and orange flowers. The sweet voices of beauti ful slaves hummed a gay tune, but Barneses was very sad and thoughtful. Suddenly the shadow of a huge bird passed over the palace court What is it?" asked the king of his servants. 'An eagle, my lord, for you. lie brings a There is luck message from Osiris." The royal bird flew nearer and nearer. At last he swooped down and dropped upon the bulruhses at the foot of the por livrv steps the tiny glass slipper tua l Nefertsu had worn. 'Tisa wondrous foot which this will fit," said Barneses, picking np the glittering thing. None of the ladies of Egypt can have a foot so small." 'Nay, your majesty," answered his 'Wise old councilor, "the shoe is not of Egyptian make, but surely the owner cannot be far off." I will make the maiden my queen you can find her," declared Kaineaes, "but oe tare she is not in the land of the Seven Rivers." "We will find her, never fear," said the wise men, and they at once . dis patched royal couriers with orders to search every house till they could find the maiden to whom the slipper be longed and whose foot it should fit The messengers went over all the land of Egypt and at last came to the palace where Nefertsu lived as a slave. Now Nefertsu's mistress had a daugh- i ter who, when she heard of the king s proclamation, determined that she would be queen. So when the mes sengers arrived at the palace she ap peared before them, very meek, and delicate, and said: "Ah, you have brought back my slippen It is very kind of you. I valued die pair very highly." And .she showed them the mate to it, which she had taken from Nefertsu. I!ut the messenger hd two or three id as of his own, so he answered: "If thcslii per belongs to you, surely it will fit your foot." The young lady then could do no better "than to attempt to put it on, buUher great toe was too large, and pull and push as she might it would not go on. "Thou hast a young and handsome slave perhaps the shoe will fit her," said the messenger looking at Nefertsu. And in snite of all she could sav be fcnelt down and slipped on the dainty j slip-cr, which fitted her exactly. "We salute you as the bride of our king,"rthe messengers exclaimed; and they mounted her in a go den chariot j and carried her to Barneses. Beauti- fui and dainty asa w hite Iny sue stood Wfrvre the king, with her pearly feet clad in the wonderful glass slippers. When Kameses saw her he said: "She is as beautiful as the golden goddess Isis, whose statue is in the great temple." And he wooed her even asThothmes the grandfather wooed the dark-eyed Nitaker of Thebes. What better could Nefertsu do?' She married iiim, and there was a great wedding. There were processions to the temples and costly sacrifices made to the gods. As the bridal party went to the temple the daughter of Nefertsu's mistress went out to see the show. She was sorrv for it ever after, for a j dove picked out her eyes so that she was always bind. I.nt JSefertsu had so much pity for her that she took her home to the royal palace and made her chief lady of honor, though all she could do was to sit and with an ostrich fan keep the Hies from the queen's face. Philadelphia Times. A Wonderful Time-Keeping; Automaton. One of the most wonderful time keepers known to the horoiogists was made in London about 100 years ago and sent by the president of the East India company as a gift to the emperor of China. The case was made in the form of a chariot, in which was seated the figure of a woman. This figee ws of prre ivory am. gold, and sat with her right hazid resting upon a tiny clock fastened to the side of the vehicle. A part of the wheels which kept track of the flight of time were hidden in the body of a tiny bird, which had seemingly just alighted upon the lady's finger. Above was a canopy so arranged as to con ceal a silver bell. This bell was fitted with a miniature hammer of the same metal, and, although it appeared to have no connection with the clock, regularly struck the hours, and con id be made to repeat by touching a dia mond button on the lady's bodice. In the chariot at the ivory lady's fet there was a golden figure of a dog, and above and in front were two birds, apparently trying befoPe" The chariot.

A minister of a prominent New York church, who was about to leave home for a few days, was bid ling good-by to'his family, says the Boston lludget. When he came to Hobby he took the little fellow in his arms and said: "Well, young man, 1 want you to be a good boy, and b'e sure to take god care of mamma." Bobby promised, and the father de parted, lca.ing him with a very large and full appreciation of his new aad weighty responsibility. When night came and he was called to say his prayers, the young' guardian ex pressed himself as follows: "O Lord, rlease protect papa, and brother Dick, and sister Alice, and aunt Mary, and all the little Jones bovs, and Pobby. But you needn't troub.e about mamma, for I'm going to look after her myself. !- One Store Victory. A well-brought-up child was seen secretly to purloin and pocket an orange from the laid-out dinner-table, but was afterwards seen to enter the empty room and secretly again return it to the dish and triumphantly ex claim: "Sold again, Satan!" SCIENCE OF THE DAY. A COLLECTION OF NEWS FROM INDUSTRIAL FIELDS. Wonder Workers In Steam, Electricity and Chemistry An Invention for Farmers Electric Lighter l'rintins Press Register. Novel Counting Attachment. This improved counter, which is adapted to automaticaUy register each impression of the press, may be at tached in such a way as to be easily thrown into operative position and easily tilted back out of the way, operating only when cue press is actually printing, and not register ing when the -'throw-off" is used. The improvement has been pacented. The counter is of the usual kird, with registering wheels and knobs for set ting them, and it is operated by a lever which hangs down at a slight in clination to the bottom of the case, the lever being bent upward and laterally at one end, aud finally entering a slot in the case, where its inner end is pivoted. A front view of the counter with its attachments is shown in the figure at the top of the picture, a side view i-eing shown in the figuie at the left, and the position of its attach ment to the press on the right. On the top or back of the case containing the counting mechanism is a plate a-. --- 0C$ CJ o u v v PRIJtTTXG PKESS KF.GJtSjput.. with projection. .'Jugs pivoted to the iryper end of a standard secured to one side of the frame of the press, the standard extending upward to a poit near tke p:ith of the platen, so that when the case is swung into position for registering, its lever. A, will ex tend into the path of a finger or pin on the platen, B, of the press. If the counter is not to be used, it may be readily tipped over to the back side of the standard, out of the path of the finger. When the throw-off is used, the platen does not quite touch the type, and the finger and lever are so ad j'nste as not to come into engage ment nfc-h each other except when an impression if iici-ially made, or when the throw of! handle moves at the side of the plate i the finger may be at tached to the handle. ' The device is very simple, compact and inexpensive, can be readily attached to any job press and the li'.'ures are always in plain sight of the pressman, who can at any time tell at a glance just how many sheets have been printed nt-Tapping 5Jjrtiiiie. A nut-tap, ing machine has been contrived by a Khode Island invent r which automatically preseut-i in suc cession a number ot nuts to the tap, releases them from the holding jaws after tapping and pu-hes them op to the shank of the tap and, when the desired number of nuts has ' been tapped, the machine is automatically stopped. The apparatus is described as having a longitudinally rotatable tap and means for driving the same, the combination with the table, mov ably supported by a frame in front of the tap, and having an arm, a spring secured to the arm and a stud on the forward end tf the frame. There is a feed box secured to the central for ward portion of the taide and a jaw block is secured in the slot in tlie tabie below the box, the spring operated uar carrying fingers sup ported a slide on the lower surface of the table; this is operated against the sprinc pressure by a rod pivoted to the bar and to a depending arm on the table, being adapted to be engaged by a stop and a racktfexured to the under side of the table. jAi lever is pivoted b twecn studs bSow the table and having a semieircnt-jtr- pinion engaging ith the rack and rod connects the lower end of the lever 'with that of tfie pivoted lever.

The body of the post is of hard rub ber or other insulating material, bored axially to receive the wires, the end to be inserted in the gas fixture having an external thread, while tEBTfther end has an internal thread to receiveJ the contact screw. The latter is threaded, and upon it is placed a me tallic nut, between which and the binding post body the house wire is clamped, the wire" leading to th elec tricaf gas lighter being similarly clamped by the nut of the binding post adjoining1 the burner. Jn the side of the post is a binding screw, for clamping the wire, and the inner end of the contact screw has an axial bore in which is received the exposed end of the wire in the fixed end of the fix ture. Two such binding posts ara necessary for completing the circuit through a eras fixture. Towing: on the Seine. An account is given of some interest ing experiments conducted by the is'ociete de Touage de la Basse Seine et de l'Oise upon the Uiver Seine, which have culminated in the construction of a towboat of large dimensions, whose towing apparatus has been pro vided with a number of magnetized pulleys. In size the main towing pul ley is but a little over four feet in di ameter, it being simply a solenoid whose soft iron coil is flanged to form the groove, the bottom of which is a bronze ring wi h rubber joints to pre vent the wire coil from getting wet: the current is generated by a small dynamo. The whole const' uction is stated to be simple and of very great strength, and, besides the advantages of having a small towing pulley, there is the much greater one that the proper amount of adhesion is obtained with only three-quarters of h turn. A similar magnetized pulley acts as a brake on the slack of the chain so that it can be properly paid out. An Improved Mall for 1!ilk Cattle. The stall shewn in the illustration is designed to enhance the comfort and conduce to the regular feeding of the animal. The improvement has been patented. The stalls are prefer ably built in pairs and have a traverse gutter at the rear of the stall flooring. The feed cribs are of such height as to readi'y permit the cattle haltered thereto to feed over their top edges, and at each wall of a crib are vertical stanchions, from the b ise of which a short vertical pprtition wall is ex tended rearwardly. The crib covers are hinged on pendent gates, whereby the cribs are not only closed at their tops, but the space above each crib is shut off from the stall. The gates, to the lower edge of each of which is hinged a crib cover, are secured upon 9i rotable transverse shaft,. on the outer end of which is a transverse handle bar A cord extending upward from the outer edge of each crib cover connects with a transverse cord pass frig over a grooved pulley at the side, the covers being raised and folded against the gates by pulling upon the cord, when both the covers and the CATTLE STALL gates may be raised, as indicated in dotted lines in the outline figure, by rotating the handle bar, thus afford ing a clear opening from each stall into the crib opposite it. A lath piece is adapted tii be swung across the path of the handle bar to hold the gate locked in elevated position. ' Kacli fc'tar a Snn. Heferrinc to fome of the more val uable conclusions arrive i at by recent astr m mical research, an English writer argues in favor of the theory that the stars, or many of them, are very similar to our own sun, tfcis being clearly shown from three con siderations. One of these is their great intrinsic brilliancy compared with their small apparent diameter, a diam eter so minute that the highest powers of the largest telescope fail to show them as anything but mere points of light without measurable magnitude; second, their vast distance from the earth, a distance so great that the diameter of the earth's orbit dwindles almost to a point in comparison this also accounting satisfactorily for the first fact: and third, the spectroscope that unerring instrument of research in this field snows that the light emitted by many of them is very simi lar to that radiated by the sun. Thus, their chemical and physical constitu tion appears analagous to that of our central luminary. Though the spec tra of the red stars differ much from the solar spectrum, these objects arc comparatively rare, forming excep tions to tlse general rule. Pressure per Square Foot. It has been ascertained by Prof. Kernot of Melbourne university, Aus ti alia, that the usually assumed weight of sn to 10J pounds per square foo;, produced by a decse crowd of persons, may be lately exceeded. In an actual trial a class o-f students averaging i5.s.5 pounds each in. weight were crowded in a lobby containing 18.21 square feet, making an average floor load of 134 7 pounds, roomtill being left to place another man, which woul i have brought up the loading, to 13.1 pounds. In another case fifty-eight Irish laborers, averaging 1-15 pounds each, were placed in an' empty ship deckjiouse measuring 57 square feet tlooc area, and the load in this case was about 14?iounds per square foot; in another test, with seventy-three laborers crowded into a hut 9 feet by 8 feet s inches, a load of 142 pounds was produced, with estimated room for two or three men additional. 8ultary Science, Little Nell (to her aoll) Now, here is some chocolates for you.

Chicago Record. Who Make the 1-ashions. Dismiss from your mind the idea that artists and painters have any thing to do with the matter. When a fashion of a certain period is revived, as for instance, just now, the "1830," rumor always has it that, because the cciiitumes of that time were quaint or picturesque, some greatartist prompted their readoption. He did nothing of the kind. Great artists are, as a rule, great enough in common sense to know that however well old-world dresses ma3r look in pictures, they are not, with very rare exceptions, adapt able to the wear and tear of the every day life of the present. Another popular idea is that most fashions are set by some elegant wo man of the world, says a writer in the Western Budget. That also is imag ining vain things. Very occasionally it may happen that a leading society lady, by wearing a certain costume or part of a costume of her own inven tion, sets a fashion. But, as a rule, that busiest of busy women, the ruler of a large and much-frequented salon, has neither time nor inclination to create her costumes. She preferpay ing others for doing it for her. Who, then, are "these others?"' The majority are quiet women, themselves dressed in the simplest style, on whom none of their fashionable clientele ever set eyes, but who, from behind the scenes, rule the world of fashion with an iron rod. They are employed by leading business houses to puzzle out week after week something new, startling, effective, by means of which a society woman may outshine every body else. These ladies, who are tlie real fashion-makers, are well paid, but of honors they have none, and their names, though they deserve it well, since for the most part they evolve fashions entirely out of their inner consciousness, do not go down to pos terity. Think of the change one single cen tr.ry has wrought among the fashion makers! At the end of the eighteenth century, and, indeed, well into the present one, a doll, a single French doll, was all that was needed to gi ve to the women of the whole of civilized Europe the cue as to what they were expected to wear during a summer or winter season. This dtsll was dressed at Paris; thence it was sent to London, Berlin, Vienna and St. Petersburg; it had with it its day-dress, its silk evening cos tume, perhaps, for very stately occa sions, a velvet robe, nd a muslin or tarlatan frock for dancing. Now, imagine how utterly bourgeois or provincial it would be were you to even dream of wearing the same visit ing or evening gown through one whole season! -But the modern frenzy for luxury in dress has now gone so far that even its most reckless advocates a-re beginning to pause, and then comes from Paris, the very throne of fashion, a strong appeal to all women to return to the graceful, elegant simplicity of the days of the past. "Let us cease to make simplicity a synonym of ugliness: let us no longer indulge in this restless chasicg after change and notoriety, and let us re turn to the ways of the olden days when what was worn was good and rich as purse can buy, but when it was not considered almost a disgrace to wear the same-drosses for three or four months. " Which words of wisdom should be printed in letters of gold over the doors of every j.'fa.shionable resort." For I'nexpected Guests. Here are a number of good recipes which may be prepared in from five to fifteen minutes. They are just the dishes to serve at that emergency, so well known to all housekeepers, when a meal must be prepared quickly.

Bake in a scalloped cake pan, and serve with a liquid sauce. Don't lie Vulgar. Vulgar women may win admiration, but they never win respect; before an individual is respected she must re spect herself. Vulgar women appear in public: wearing brilliant colors, brilliant cheeks, audible perfumes, jcwelry.aml sensational styles. Women who wear doll-baby tresses and powder their faces like clowns may come of very good families, but they are vulgarians. Women who bear tales, who betray confidence and make mischief with their tongues are vulgarians of the most despicable types. Vulgar women walk like grenadiers: they come down on their heels with force enough to shake anything from an "L" road station to a summer ho tel piazza. Vulgar women are dangerous; they not only corrupt good manners, but they are a bad example for the ignor ant and innocent and a disturbing element among refined people. Vulgar women like to attract atten tion; they are loud in their dress and ialk; they can be seen and heard at a distance, they are numerous, general ly annoying and often offensive. Vulgar women discuss private af fairs in public; their conversation is audible to passers-by; they invite the observation of strangers, and they are flattered by the familiar comments of flunkies, flirts, fakirs, gutter mer chants and street loafers. Women Kvery where. Madame Ilenriette Bonner the artist, has become famous as the most nat ural painter of cats and kittens in Paris.
