apparently most
practical self-propelling
vehicle yet
produced In this
country has Just
been perfected at
Springfield, Mass.,
after three years
of experiment. This
improved motor
carriage Is dally
traversing the road
ways of Western Massachusetts. The
total weight is 600 pounds. The wheels
are rubber-tired and run on ball-bearings.
The front wheels turn on their own
pivot, located In the hub, the axle being
firmly held by the side bars. The lever
In front wholly controls the carriage.
The lateral movement turns the wheels,
the vertical motion starts and stops the
vehicle, changes its rate of speed and
also reverses its movement, driving It
backward when desired. The lever con
nections all have ball joints, which can
never become loose and cause lost mo
tion. A brake drum of peculiar construc
tion Is placed under the seat and con
nected with a thumb button located at
the front corner of the seat. By pressing

genious devices are employed In the
mixture of gasoline with air to produce
the proper quantity of gas, only a small

The gas so produced comes in contact
ivlth an electric spark, thereby produc

says, in his paper read before the
American association, appears to have
been more literary In character than
even those of Palenque. There have
been found there twenty-four stelae, all
of which have inscriptions, besides al
tars, slabs, and hieroglyphic steps In
large numbers. Pottery vessels and
potsherds have been found bearing
glyphs, either painted or engraved.
These potsherds have been found in
such quantities as to show that thou
sands of their vessels had hieroglyphic
Inscriptions. The inscriptions are In
timately connected with the symbolism
almost Invariably found with them, and
an understanding of the symbolic marks
and ornaments will largely aid In de
ciphering the glyphs.

The Coat of the Gnat.
The cnat Is a tinv. tlnv insect, but
sometimes just as annoying and hard to
get rid of as our better known mosquito.
In warm weather plenty of these crea
tures are to be found in the woods and
near the water, where when the proper
time comes they deposit their tiny eggs,
leaving them to float about in the pool
until they are hatched.
Now the gnat, small as she Is, has a
wonderful instinct which teaches her
Just what is best to do in order to keep
her eggs safe until they are hatched.
She Joins them all together, sticking
them fast with a sort of glue which she
furnishes herself. And she forms them

water. The upper end of each egg 19

pointed ends upward.
There are from two hundred and fifty
and. three hundred fggs In these little
egg-boats. They are to be found upon
the surface of almont any pool In sum
mer time. When the young are hatched,
they come from the under side of the
eggs and the empty shells still float
about on the water.

Gave a I. ion Strychnine.
One of Barnum & liailey's lions re
cently injured his paw in such a man
ner that It became a kindness to kill
him. A piece of meat filled with strych
nine was given him. He greedily swal
lowed the meat with Its heavy dose of
poison. The onlookers expected to see
the strychnine operate at once, but they
were mistaken. The great brute lay
down contentedly and seemed to go to
sleep. For twenty minutes or so he lay
still. Then, with no warning, he leaped
high into the air and fell with a thud
to the floor of his cage. He was dead
by the time he struck, and had prob
ably suffered no pain except at the very
instant before he died.

A monkey's Caprice.
The last of the famous group of pets
vhich Frank Buckland collected at his
louse died Jan. 17. It was the monkey,
Tiny the second, of the species Cerco-
:ithecus mona. She was a beautiful and
graceful creature, covered with a coat
if handsomely shaded hair, and had
:een under Mrs. Auckland's care seven
teen years and a half. She had the llfe
ong reputation of being exceedingly
mischievous, and was an accomplished
:hlef. She led a gray parrot, which had
been an inhabitant of the house for
twenty-five years,' a terrible life; and
when she was let out of her cage she
played havoc with her master's papers
ind manuscripts. She would dash about
the room, make a clean sweep of the
:able, and fill her pouches with anything
:hat appeared especially nice. Her two
later companions were a gray parrot
ind a thoroughbred dachshund, Olga.
Every morning Tiny and the dog had a
jame of romp, that Invariably ended in
the discomfiture of Olga. The dog would
run around the monkey's cage, barking
loudly; Tiny, inside the wires, would
un around also, and when opportunity
iccurred, would seize the dog's ears and
ieep pulling at them until Olga released
lerself. Notwithstanding these little
iisagreements, the dachshund appeared
to miss Tiny and went about the house
is If seeking her. The parrot, too,
seemed to regret the loss of the mon
key, and efforts were made to cheer her
irooping spirits, if possible.
Trout Fishing at Night.
Night fishing for trout naa suddenly
become the rage, and hereafter many
anglers may be found beside the brook
enjoying the nocturnal pastime. The
theory advanced by experts Is that the
speckled beauties wander from their
fireside more safely and successfully for
food in the night time. It is very plaus
ible that in securing Its victims the
trout moves about with more freedom
In the darkness. Hence it should pay
the angler to spend a little time with his
fly In the evening.
A Study of Maya Hieroglyphics.
American students have not made
nuch progress in Central American
irchaelogy as those of Europe; and It

Chlengo's First Ordinance.
Citizens were forbidden to let pigs
wander in the streets; to "shoot off any
firearms"; to steal timber from any of
the bridges for firewood or other pur
poses; to endanger the public safety by
putting a red hot stove pipe through the
board wall; to run a race horse through
the principal streets; to exhibit a stal
lion without due consideration for pub
lic decency; to leave timber lying loose
on the streets; or to throw dead animals
iu the river.
Ills Body Whirled About.
George Meade, an employe of the
Grand River file works, at Palnesvllle,
Ohio, was attempting to put a belt on
a pulley in motion and was caught and
whirled around the shaft about ten
times, striking a 4x10 piece of woo-i.
breaking it in two. The Injured man was
rescued with his arm broken In three
places and badly bruised about the
body, but it is thought he will live. He
weighs over 200 pounds.
