The sofa cushion is always a matter of house boM Importance, as much of the household comfort depends upon It. In summer It demands a special con sideration, because It should both look and be cool, and must be pleasing In annearance. and be of a nature that will launder easily. A pr-tty summer ushlon cover is thus made: White linen crash Is mark- . d .fT Into squares, of which every ai ternate one Is embroidered In Italian ui work. This work Is not as dlfficul as it looks. The linen Is fastened in a frame or on stiff paper, to give a firm working surface. Each square that is to be worked Is Ailed with "weaving and the various lace stitches and the borders of all the squares are finished with "binding stitch." The linen then cut from under the embroidered SU The cushion Is finished on the edges with Insertion of heavy lace. One should always ren:ember In "making up" a cushion that the down puff It self should measure two Inches longer than the outer ewer. These down pil lows ran be bought ready made, and one should order with this In mind. By having the under pillow larger the cor ners of the cover are forced full and (he whole pillow Is thus well filled and so holds Its shape, as it will not do if the cover is large. U'hen the emhroidery on a cushion cover Is soft and pliable the cover can readily be sewed to its lining wrong side out and turned, but If the em broidery is rich and likely to be dam aged by such treatment the proper way to make up the cushion Is to sew both sides separately to the down pillow It self. Square the cover perfectly, turn the edges round all four sides, and top sew them lightly to the seam of the cushion. When this Is In place turn the edges of the fabric which Is to form the ba k and top sew this to the sarn first meeting the two.

Injections of chloride of lime tend to counteract the effect. But the one successful remedy seems to be Dr. Oalmettes serum, pre pared in graduated strengths by init iating rabbits with the venom of the cobra or other reptiles, and this is not only a cure but fortifies against subse quent bites.

I Furns from Roentgen rays, now rt - ognized as a real effect, have .oi curious features. Dr. E. A. Codmai. citing nearly 200 cases, notes that the burns resemble sunburn, but that th -y may extend much deeper, the body be ing transparent to these rays. The burns do not usually appear immedi ately, most often developing in about ten days, though sometimes delayed for months. Some persons are very susceptible, others are not affected in any way. Injury may be avoided by interposing a thin grounded sheet of aluminum, or by keeping the time within safe limits, and it is concluded that an exposure of five minutes at a distance of ten inches or of twenty minutes at twenty inches can do n " harm. Not least singular Is the ap parent cumulative action, a number of successive ?afe exposures of the smc surface seeming to be as dangerous a single long exposure. By his discovery of the secret, of Afridi wax-cloth. Mr. George Watt his brought to notice an interesting indus try of India. This cloth is a kind of raised colored painting on cotton fab rics, and it has been made by tVu Af i dis for many generations, but the me dium used has been a mystery. It is now shown that the medium, known as roghan. is a peculiar product of tr.e saf flower seed. Roghan is a thick-j -ly-Iike substance, prepared only at Peshawar, and is obtained when the oil pressed from the seed is boiled for twelve hours and then thrown hot Into shallow pans of cold water. Before use it is mixed with mineral color atid drawn out into fine threads on a point ed style, with which the pattern is traced by the Afridi artists. The cloth is heavy for dress, but is adapted to household draplngs. Tests have proven that roghan is a superior waterproof ing material, with probable advantages over linseed for linoleum manufacture. Those who peer into the future stop always at one great calamity the ex haustion of our coal. What thm'.' Mr. Walter Rosenhain. an Erellsh writer, points out that the sun's heat may supply a vastly great er amount of energy than is now yielded y coal, and that this may be used at first for raising fuel plants, or vegetable products giving large returns in heating power. Under the pressure of necessity, means will doubtless be found for getting even greater returns from the solar heat by decomposing the carbon dioxide of the air directly, the air carbon then serving as fuel. Already in Germany alcohol is being produced as a cheap fuel from po tatoes, and it seems able to compete with other fuels even in a land still having much coal and little sunshine. In cloudless lands like Kgypt. the sun's energy, as Prof. John Perry has cal- energy. as Prof. John Perry has cal culated, is nearly equivalent every year to that of a layer of coal a foot thick.

The color-blind, those in whom the perception of light is normal but with a defec t In the distinction of color, are divided by Mr. P. W. Edridge-Gr&en into classes based on a theory of color evolution. A patient almost totally color-blind in one eye has given an un usual opportunity for study, and the spectroscope has proven that he an. just perceive the red and the vi"Iet of the opposite ends of the spectrum, even these being diluted with the gray that takes the place of all interme diate colors. This is what should be expected, the colors of greatest and least wave-length being first separat ed. Other cases demonstrate further that in successive degrees of color blindness the green at the middle ' the spectrum appears next, then yel low, then blue, and finally orange, completing the series. The color-blind, therefore, are classified in accordance with the number of primary colors rec ognized. If the normal-sighted be called hexachromie. thos who see Bve ccdors are pentachromic. and otters ) are tetrachromic, trichromic nd di chromic, the totally color-blind bing monochromic.
