FOUND SECRET OF GREEKS. Hungarian Professor Knows How to Make Mortar Imperishable. A Hungarian professor and chemist of the Brunn university claims to have rediscovered the secret of the ancient Greeks by which they were able to render mortar imperishable. The rea son for the remarkable preservation and hard texture of the sealing ma terial of the Acropolis at Athens, which is as good to-day as it was when first laid centuries ago, has always puzzled scientists and archae ologists. This Hungarian 3ome twenty five years ago procured a piece of this flintlike mortar and ever since has been engaged upon ascertaining the secret of its manufacture. He has in vented a chemical compound, liquid in character and yellowish color, claims of this inventor are that by the application of this compound the den sity of nearly every description of stone, including granite, is doubled, and is rendered absolutely impervious to water; it imparts to all metals the power to resist rust and is a great, powerful germicide.

How Owls Caught Chickens. When I was a chunk of a boy I shot a horned owl, the spread of whose wings was 4% feet, and to the sur prise of the boy who had carried it for several miles the weight was only four pounds. They were rather numerous at that time in that section of the country, and were troublesome about carrying off chickens, which mostly roosted in apple trees about the farm buildings. The belief that they could carry away full grown hens was a common one. It was also commonly believed that an owl never picked a chicken off the roost, but, alighting on the limb, crowded the chickens off, and as it flew toward the ground caugnt it on the wing.—Forest and Stream. a of no Churches Turned Into Inna. At Great Easton, three miles from Rockingham Station, there is a Wes leyan chapel which is now an inn. When built a stone was placed over the entrance with the words inscribed, "To the Glory of God," and the inscrip tion still remains over the portal of the licensed premises. At Newcastle-under-Lyme a chapel was built in 1849, in the time of the Wesleyan reform movement, which after a time became too small, and a larger building some distance away was bought from the Wesleyans, the amalier one being sold, through various hands the building is now a licensed house and a music hall.—London Daily News. After passing former Salad Grown at Table. The experiment of serving a dinner party with salad grown under the guests' own eyes was recently tried in Berlin. Here is the recipe: Take good germinating lettuce seed and soak it in alcohol for about six hours, sow it in an equal mixture of rich soil and unslaked lime, and place it on the table. After the soup water It with lukewarm water, whereupon it com mences to sprout immediately. The thing worked like a charm, and the lettuces when plucked and prepared for eating were the size of Barcelona ants.

"Firedamp." and "Firedamp" "afterdamp," words brought into terrible promin ence in many disasters in mines, pre serve the older English "damp"—vapor, and especially tous vapor. Precisely where the word came from philology does not know, but the earliest existence of its quoted by Dr. Murray's dictionary is Caxton's (J480)—"after the dragon shal come a goot and ther shal come out of his nostrel a domp that shal betoken honger and gret# deth of peple." Bacon is one of the writers of his time who speak of the "damps" of mines. "Damp" gradually came to be applied to visible vapors, such as evening mists, and the transition to the sense of moisture is obvious. But in "damping down" a furnace one finds a relic of the verb "damp" in the sense of "suffocate." sense of nox use The Good Mixer. "He's a good mixer," or "He isn't a good mixer," are expressions you often hear. A "good mixer" is sup posed to be a man who can associate with people and make business. A poor mixer is one who makes friends slowly, who minds his own business and is not much of a rounder. A man who gives his business close attention is the best "mixer." When people are in need of a certain article they buy where they can get the best and cheap est— where conditions suit them. When people are buying articles they need they do not care whether the dealer is a "good fellow" or not. We have never thought much of the "good-mixer" Idea.—Atchison Globe. OUST THE DEMON. A Tuaale with Coffee. There is something fairly demoni acal in the way coffee sometimes wreaks its fiendish malice on those who use it. A lady writing from Calif, says:— "My husband and I, both lovers of coffee, suffered for some time from a very annoying form of nervousness, accompanied by most frightful head arl- - In my own case there was eventually developed some sort of af fection of the nerves leading from the spine to the head. "I was unable to hold my head up straight, the tension of the nerves drew it to one side, causing me the mo«t intense pain. We got no relief from medicine, and were puzzled as to what caused the trouble, until a friend suggested that possibly the cof fee we drank had something to do with it, and advised that we quit it and try Postum Coffee. "We followed his advice, and from the day that we began to use Postum we both began to improve, and in a very short time both of us were entirely relieved. The nerves became steady once more, the headaches ceased, the muscles in the back of my neck relaxed, my head straightened up and the dreadful pain that had so punished me while I used the old kind of coffee vanished. "We have never resumed the use oi the old coffee, but relish our Postum every day as well as we did the former beverage, lighted to find that we can give 11 freely to our children also, something we never dared to do with the old kind of coffee."

B.—I have a barn 40x56 feet, with underground stables, which are very damp. Three feet of the wall are of concrete, with five and one-half feet of wooden work, which reaches the ceiling. How could (his basement be ventilated? A good way to ventilate your stable is to place four or six inch tiles un derneath your wall, in the shape of a U, having the end outside the wall high enough so that no dirt or drain age can get in. Cover it with a screen. Have the end on the inside of the wall reach a few inches above the floor. This makes a better fresh air intake pipe than a tile straight through the wall, as it creates more suction. Have these intake pipes in the feed alleys if possible in front of stock, '""hen put in air flues made of one-inch boards about eight inches square, or a galvan ized iron pipe will do, running from the roof of the barn down the gable ends or the center perline posts through the floor of the barn to a few inches below the under side of the joist. These flues will take off the heated air and thus draw on the fresh air pipes to fill the stable with fresh air. is of pure You can use as many of The aver these flues as you require, age number for a barn 40x56 or 60 feet is four of each kind.

F. con If sand is used in making the ment blocks, it will take two barrels of Portland cement to one cubic yard of sand take one and one-quarter barrels of cement to one cubic yard of gravel and would make as good a block. A continuous air space *as described is generally sufficient, but if strapped, lathed and plastered it would be to make a thoroughly dry wall. Notching Logs for a House.
