Tho Last Addition by Science to
Popular Use.
A Revelation in Economical Illumination
for Homes, Hotels and All
Classes of Buildings.
Acetylene, the new artificial light, three
ears ago known only to Scientists, is today
coming so rapidly into popular use that
it promises to replace all the older means of
lighting. The new light has been christened
"Artificial Sunlight, as by its rays coloia
can be distinguished as by day and in soft,
ness, steadiness and all qualities of light the
resemblance is most marked. '
The great economy, and convenience ju
producing the new llluminant, and the
beauty und excellence ot the light itself explain
in a measure its marvelous growth hi
Calcium Carbide, the material from which
eacli individual user produces his own Acetylene,
is a solid substance, bard as granite
and is ordinarily crushed, like broken stone,
to pieces about the size of eggs. This material
is compact, clean, convenient and even
safer to handle than coal. Its marvelous
oliinity for water makes it of value and the
moment it comes in contact with water the
generation of Acetylene begins. Carbide, as
ft is generally called, is usually packed, in
air and water tight drums, holding one hundred
pounds of tin's material, each.
Enough Acetylene gas can be made to light
a large room for several hours by merely
throwing a piece of carbide the size of one s
thumb into a tumbler of water. In that case,
however, the gas is not controlled the gas
is all made in a few moments and lost. Machines
called generators arc made, which
cause the Carbide and water to be brought
together just in proportion as the gas is
needed for lighting.
Most of these, machines are simply constructed
and they do this automatically. If
t ne ngnt from one burner
is needed, then the machine
causes just enough gas to be
made to supply one burner.
If ten burners arc lighted,
then the same machine will
deliver enough gas to supply
ten burners. The very
simplicity of this principle
lias attracted the attention
and inventive genius of
hundreds of scientists and
mechanics; thus, in some instances,
unreliable and unsafe
Acetylene generators
have been produced. The
good and reliable machines
are many, however, and
most of such arc constructed
under the diiection'of com-latent
mechanical engineers
and Bold by responsible concerns.
t I
M "M I
Imagine receiving one's supply of artificial
hglit. as a sofid. one hundred pounds
at a time in a little drum from the freight
'station. When one realizes that each package
will make as much light as 25,000 candles
for one hour, more light than the ordinary
size family will use in three months,
and such a package will cost about $4.00, perhaps
the explanation of the increasing popularity
is found.
The cost of Carbide lias been steadily reduced
notwithstanding the early impressions
of the great expense in manufacture. Such
large quantities are now being consumed,
and such material reductions in price have
actually been made, that users can expect
that lighting with Acetylene will be ns in-,
expensive as it has proved to be desirable in
point of excellence and beauty.
Acetylene solves the lighting problem
wherever city gas and electric light is not
available, by the simple process of the
plant. These can be placed in any
dwelling or building by an ordinary mechanic,
can oe manipulated by any person of ordinary
intelligence. They are practical,
simple, safe, economical, and appeal to every
owner or occupant of a building, every
cnant or manufacturer, and every individual
interested in the artificial light problem.
He Knew.
"Now, boys," said the Sunday schoolteacher,
"our lesson to-day teaches us that
if we are good while here on earth, when
we die we will go to a place of everlasting
hliss. Hut, suppose we are bad, then what
becomes of us?" "We'll go to a place of
everlasting blister," replied a small boy at
the foot of the class. Yonkers Statesman.

A Consrcssiunn "Who "Wns In the.
Dark ns to Title and
A certain member of the house of representatives,
nameless lieie forever more,
met a newspaper correspondent in the lobby
the other day and mysteriously invited him
to his committee room. The correspondent
cast a chew of tobacco out of his mouth
in anticipation, and followed the statesman
to the seclusion of the place designated.
"Say," said the member, looking about
carefully to see that only the two of them
were present, "I want to ask you a question
in confidence."
"Oh," responded the correspondent in a
tone of disappointment, "is that what you
"es; and if you can give me the information
I am after you will do me a great
"All right," said the correspondent, recovering
his wonted spirits, though the
other kind were lacking, "what is it? Go
ahead with your rat killiug."
"Well," began the member in a manner
reminding one of the preface to a book, "I
had one of'tlie boys look over a speech I am
going to make, just to see what lie thought
of it and make a suggestion or two to improve
it, if necessary, and he's got something
into it that I'm not up to."
"What is it?" asked the correspondent,
as the member hesitated.
"Well, I'm fairly well up on the Bible, and
when I come across the sentence 'anywhere
from Dan to Beershoba,' I know what it
m4?.ns well enough, and also know about
! Dan and the other one. I had that in the
speech, but he said it was a chestnut by
this time, and it would sound more tony
and abreast of the times and literary culture
to change it from 'Title to Colophon,'
and I told him 'all right,' but didn't let on.
Now, you are a friend of mine, and I want
to ask you about this. As I said, I'm up on
the Bible, but I don't know the classical
busness a little hit, and while I can kind
of catch on to Title, I'd like to know who
in thunder Colophon was. Do you know?"
The correspondent explained, and the
member saw to it that his cast-out. chew
of tobacco was not wasted. N. Y. Sun.
It Looked SnirBcatlve of a Weddlns
Out Warn Intended for a Different
An East end car was loaded down with
shoppers, mostly women, for it was in the
middle of the afternoon. Conversation was
proceeding at a great rate. It was like a
Sink tea or a session of the seeing circle.
!ut all at once a hush fell over the fair chatterers.
A negro lad entered, bearing in his
arms an immense cake, three or four decks
high, and frosted over from pit to dome, as
they say of a theater. There was a profusion
of flowers by way of decoration", and delicate
traceries of gauzy lace completed the embellishments'.
The cake was so largo that
the negro could scarcely carry it.
The cake, told the whole story of the wedding,
the bridesmaids, the orange flowers, the
flower girls and the banquet afterward.
Every feminine heart in that street car was
a-flutter as its owner gazed speechlessly
upon the evidence of a wedding to he.
Finally, when -the car stopped to let on
another passenger and everything was very
still, one lady took courage to ask the negro
where the weddinpr was going to be.
"Whut weddin'J" asked the ncero. his eves
f "The wedding that cake is for."
uis ain t no weddm cake.
"No'm. Dis yeres er cake walk cake "
There was a smile that reached irom one
end of the car to the other, and very soon
conversation was resumed as

A lady living in the Eighteenth ward answered
a knock at her door the other morning
to find a poorly-dressed woman, greatly
in need of help. Her tale excited sympathy
in the kind lady's heart. When the poor
woman left she carried a big bundle of
clothes and a sack containing many of the
necessaries of life. The next morning there
appeared at the same door a seven-year-old
urchin of ruddy countenance, who somewhat
