' ' '■ Self-Playing Violin This apparatus is the latest invention of a German musician who worked on the problem for more than seven years and finally succeeded in construct ing one machine, which is a combination of a violin and a piano. Our picture ‘shows the upper part which consists of three violins upside down and with the cords pointed outward. They are touched by a ro-und bow. Only one cord is made to sound at a time and one has the impression that a violin ex pert is playing on it. The combination of these two instruments is put in operation by electricity. By regulating the pneumatic pressure, the different notes are produced and the mechanism is led by a perforated roll, as in use by the player-pianos. The machine is driven by a small motor. The appar atus can be used in five different ways. The piano can be played alone, the violins can be played alone or with piano accompaniment; the piano can be played automatically with electric power, or both instruments can be played together. FUEL FROM THE NILE An endeavor is being made to put to commercial use the waste products of the Sudd, that great mass of vegeta tion which blocks the Nile at Lake No. extends for some 300 miles, and is so dense in places that elephants can walk on it. There is now being manu factured from the grasses, papyrus, um-soof, etc., which grow above the water, anew fuel called "suddite.” It Is intended as a substitute lor coal, and can be produced at a cost of about one-fourth that of coal. WORLD’S SMALLEST REPUBLIC A little island in the Mediterranean, known as Tavolara, a short distance from Sardinia, has this distinction Little more than a mile in length, it has a population of 55 souls. The sovereignity of the Island was accord ed in 1836 by King Char'es Albert to the Bartoleonl family. Up to 18S2 Paul I. reigned peacefully over this little island kingdom, but at his death the islanders proclaimed a republic. By the constitution of the republic the president is elected for ten years and women exercise the franchise. TO DETECT FIRE DAMP A cage containing a canary is indis pensable on approaching a mine after an explosion. Canaries and small warm blooded animals such as mice are, probably because of their extremely delicate organisms, particularly sensi tive to carbon monoxide. Thus, a cage containing one or two canaries should always be taken with an ad vance exploration party; they are af fected by minute quantities of this gas a short time before it will affect a human being. DRAINING THE ZUYDER ZEE A great project is again before the people of Holland —the draining of the Zuyder Zee. The sea which, as every one knows. Is at the north of Holland, and covers an area of 60.000 hectares, a hectare being practically two acres an a half. Just half a century ago a scheme to drain the southern portion of the sea was first mooted, and al though it received considerable sup port. the opposition was greater; but bow as association has been formed. FIRST JAPANESE IN AMERICA The first Japanese who ever came to America was Manjiro Nakahama, a 14-year-old fisherman, who with four companions was stranded on a desert island in the northern Pacific ocean, in IS4I. After being there three months they were picked up by an American vessel. His companions were left in Hawaii, but Manjiro, who became a great favorite with the cap tain. was brought to America, and ed ucated in New England. He after wards was the interpreter for Com modore Perry in his Japanese negotia tions How Salt Is Farmed | One of the greatest American deserts is what Is called Salton Sink, In Southern California. At one time It was covered by the ocean. When the sea lowered its bed became dry and It was found that deposits of salt cov ered the surface. Here is a picture of what is called salt farming. The farmers scrape up the salt In heaps, loading It Into wagons. It is then taken to the nearest railroad station and sent to market like so much wheat op corn. The salt is so purdlthat It needs no treatment, and the sink for many miles Is covered with it. and a bill, a contemporary states, will be introduced into the chamber. The promoters see that with an Increased population means must be taken to enlarge the country, and this reclama tion of the sea is suggested as capa ble of accomplishment. If the sea is conquered there are several lakes which can be dealt with later. GREEN SNOW In at least three places In the world today green snow is found. One of the regions is la the vicinity of Mount Hecla, in Iceland; another is in Si beria, fourteen miles eas: of the river Obi and the third is in the South American Republic of Ecuador, not far from Quito. MANY LAYERS OF WARMTH During a recent medical examina tion of the pupils of an English coun cil school in Mid-Sussex, it was found that a little boy was wearing seven shirts. His mother said her son was so delicate, and she wanted to keep him warm. TROUrS MEMORY An expert in fish culture, who be lieves that fish have memories, gave a novel exhibition to support hla theory. In one of the inclosed pools at the hatchery under his charge there was a large trout, which always came forward to see and be seen when visitors appeared. the expert’s custom, after calling particu lar attention to that trout, to raise his cane quickly and hold it over the w T ater. The performance would have no effect upon the trout. Then the expert would produce a light trout rod and appear with it at the side of the pool. Instantly that trout would turn and flee, hide itself at the far end of the Inclosure, and remain there as long as the rod was in sight. This is the explanation of the sudden change in the trout’s demeanor; One day. early In the career of the fish, the ex pert, to try a barbless hook he had devised, cast with one in that pool, and this trout seized it. The hook penetrated and passed through its up per jaw, and by the time it was re leased from the hook it had under gone an operation that made a last ing impression upon it. BANK’S ODD CALLERS The Bank of England has Just dis pensed with the services of the two detectives who have stood sentry at its front door for over a quarter og a cen tury. During the period many w-ere their odd experiences, for there are many people at large who think they own the Bank of England or part of it. and they call periodically with the idea of making an inspection of the premises. Then there is the Individual who would go up to the sentry box. tap the detective on the arm. and ask in an undertone, “Which is the way to the cashier’s desk? I want to change a cheque for a million pounds.’ An other would ask to be directed to the strong room, “where my largo diamond collection is kept, by permission of his majesty.” Then there were the “claim ants”—those who imagined they were heirs to the throne, and that the bank would be theirs as soon as they had proved their claim. Even visitors in rags would call and demand to be al lowed to count over their securities. MOST REMARKABLE HYBRID ■ This is a picture of the “camele phantelopelicanteaterminewt,” said to be a native of “Khan-tel-e-ligh.” This remarkable hybrid is formed as fol lows: The hump and hind-quarters of a camel, the head of an elephant, with the horns and front legs of an antelope, while the lower jaw, pouch and back legs are those of a pelican. The snout and tongue of an ant-eater, the fur of an ermine and the tail of a newt complete the picture. ORIGIN OF WEDDING RING Professor Pollard of University col lege, London, said in a recent address that “there was something common in origin between the ring put through the nose of the wild bull and the ring which was put on a certain finger of a lady's hand. It Implied originally a certain amount of control —a certain amount, perhaps, of cap tivity and obedience. Now that we are getting rid of ‘obedience,’ there would perhaps be a campaign against the ring as well.’* DOCTOR’S GERM-PROOF HOUSE A doctor in Yokohama, Japan, has built himself a novel house with a view to guarding against microbes. The walls of this remarkable edifice are made of blocks of glass. They are hollow, the interstices being filled up with a solution of salt of soda, which is intended to regulate the tem perature of the interior. The win dows are hermetically closed, and all is only admitted after passing through filters . WOULD TAKE BOOK I TO TELL TROUBLES Carrsville Lady Says She Laid Awake At Night Because of Her Troubles. Carrsville, Ky. —Mr*. F. e. Cossey, of this town, says: “I tad been af flicted for nearly six years with wom anly troubles, and would suffer to much, every month! It would take a book to tell what I have suffered in that time. I got so I could not sleep at night, from nervousness. I had four differ ent doctors to treat me, but they could not help. When I took Cardui, it relieved me at once. I can’t praise it enough. I hardly know how to tell you what Cardui has done for me.

It kept getting worse, I coulcm’t sleep nights any more. It kept itching for about a month, then I went to a doctor and got some liquid to take. It seemed as if I was going to get better. The itching stopped for about three days, but when it started again, was even worse than before. The eczema Itched so badly I couldn’t stand it any more. “I went to a doctor and he gave me some medicine, but didn’t do any good. We have been having Cuticura Rem edies in the house, so I decided to try them. I had been using Cuticura Soap, so I got me a box of Cuticura Ointment, and washed orf the affected part with Cuticura Soap three times a day, and then put the Cuticura Oint ment on. The first day I put it on, it relieved me of itching so I could sleep all that night. It took about a week, then I could see the scab'come off. I kept the treatment up forifhree weeks, and my eczema was cured. “My brother got his face burned with gun-powder, and he used Cuticura Soap and Ointment. The pedple all thought he would have scars, but you can’t see that he ever had his face burned. It was simply awful to look at before the Cuticura Remedies (Soap and Ointment) cured it.” (Signed) Miss Elizabeth Gehrki, For rest City, Ark., Oct, 16, 1910.

Y PRESS OF COUNTRY PRAISED Officers of Anti-Tuberculosis Associa tion Acknowledge Debt in Fight Against Dread Disease. Publicity in newspapers and maga zines to the amount of 1,500,000 inches a year on tuberculosis and its preven tion is being given by the press of the United States, according to an estimate issued recently by the Na tional Association for the Study and Prevention of Tuberculosis. If all the publicity on tuberculosis given by the press of this country gathered in one paper, the National Association es timates it would make a paper of over 6,250 pages. In the last four years, during which time an active publicity campaign has been carried on, the National Association estimates that over 5,000,000 Inches, or over 90 miles, of press notices on tuberculosis have been published. “Publicity is the very heart of the educational campaign against tuber culosis.says Dr. Livingston Farrand, the executive secretary of the nation al association. “Largely because of the intelligent co-operation of the press' has the anti-tuberculosis move ment in this country been able to be come, as it is, the greatest organized movement of its kind in the world. When tuberculosis shall have become a rare disease the American press may justly claim a large share in this gigantic achievement.” Eczema Seven Years —Cured by Tet terine. ‘T had Eczema on my chest for seven years and the torture was almost unbear able.
