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

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

Ramesis in great glory, lie was a

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

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."

"but oe tare she is not in the land of

"We will find her, never fear," said
the wise men, and they at once . dis

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

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

she could do was to sit and with an

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

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

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

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

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

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

An Electrical Binding Pout.
An improved binding post for inser
tion in gas fixtures, for making con
n - t'ons between the house wires and
the burning wires is shown in the en
graving. Fig. 1 shows the improve
ment applied to an electrical gas
NECTIONS. lighter, Fiss. 2 and 3 being trans
verse sections of double and single
binding posts, the former being used
where the return current is conveyed
by a wire instead of the fixture itself.
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
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.

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
"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. "
