Modern Inventions Have Done
Much to Preserve Eyesight.
"Spectacles," said an ophthal
mologist, according to the Phila
delphia Record, "are as old as wa
gons, 1 suppose, or as clothes.
Wasn't a pair found recently in a
mummy case that dated back to
something like 300 years before
Christ? But the spectacles of the
ancients were merely magnifying
glasses, and the modern sorts, the
prismatic, the spherical, the con
cave, the convex, and the cylindri
cal, which correct double vision,
refraction, myopia, hypermetropia,
astigmatism, etc. are compara
tively modem inventions. They
are made of rock crystal, and
they have done more good thau
anything else in modem medicine,
except-, perhaps, anaesthetics. Med
ical records show that there is now
40 per cent less of blindness thau
there used to be in the world, and
this improvement is due entirely
to the use of spectacles, which have
kept weak eyes from succumbing,
as braces keep weak limbs from
succumbing. There is also much
less of headache thau there was.
A great deal of that came, yon
know, from the eyes, aud that
sort of headache spectacles have
WILL PRINT ITS OWN STAMPS
Washington, D. C, Aug. 1. The
government will probably print its
own postal stamps as the result of
the bids opened at the Postoffice
Department today for the contract
of supplying the postage stamps
for the United States for four years
beginning Oct. 1 next. It had been
stated that the prices asked by the
bureau of eugraving aud printing
was exorbitant aud that the work
would have to go to a private con
cern. The bureau's bid, however, prov
ed the lowest. The only other bid
der was the American Bank Note
and Engraving Company of New
York, whose bid is estimated to be
$15,000 higher for the four'-years
than the bureau's bid.
WANTED A GENTLEMAN:
An extremely stout, good-tempered
Englishwoman once contriv
ed to wedge herself iuto a gallery
seat at a Loudon theater. The
seat would have accommodated a
person of ordinary size, but her
avoirdupois caused uuconcealed
annoyance to n smartly dressed
youth next to her. She began to
peel an orange, aud the youth, with
a gesture of complaint, removed
his hat fussily to a safer position.
"I suppose," said the good-tempered
woman, "that you,d rather
have had a geutleman sitting by
the side of you, sir, wouldn't you?"
The youth repppishly, in
the affirmative. "Ah!" said the
woman, thoughtfully, "so would

QUEEN LEAVES MADRID
Has Gone With" Her Daughter
Madrid, August 1. Queen Maria
Christine, mother of King Alfonso,
accompanied by the infanta Maria,
has left here for Vienna. Ever
since the young king ascended the
throne there has been discord be
tween him and his mother. His
conduct toward her of late has bee
so disrespectful, not to say brut
that it has given rise to stories of
mental aberration as the only ex
planation. It has been reported
that he utterly lost his Aspect for
his mother and curses her if she
tries to cross him in any way. be
once weut so far as to ring for an
officer of the guards to eject his
mother from his presence, when
his confessor, who had been called,
entered and succeeded in .subduing
him. Since then the queen mother
has refused to see him except in
public and has passed most of her
To make a thoroughly -good
mayonnaise dressing allow one egg
to half a pint of oil, half a tea
spoonful of salt, a dash, of cayenne
pepper and lemon juice as required.
Stand the oil and the egg iu the re
frigerator until thoroughly chilled
and when about to mix the dress
ing, place a bowl iu a pail of ice
water. Drop the yolk of. the egg
carefully into the bowl and set the
white aside. Drip the oil on to
the yplk drop by drop, stirring
with a silver or wooden fork until
a smooth paste is formed. Then
continue pouring the oil, but
slightly faster and alternating
with a drop or two of lemon
juice. When the entire quantity
of oil is exhausted, add the salt
and the, pepper and lemon juice to
suit the taste. The dressing should
be rich smooth and of about the
consistency of thick cream. If, as
sometimes happens, it shows a
tendency to curdle iu the progress
of making or becomes too thick,
so it will not pour from the spoon,
add a little of the white of the egg
beaten stiff. If, in ispite of all
these precautions, the dressing
should curdle, take another egg
aud begin again, dropping the
curdled mayonnaise slowly into it
and stirring vigorously all the
May Be Issued to the Users of
("Washington Cor; N. Y. Evening Post.)
Postoffice authorities are con
sidering the advisability of issuing
a aeries of small two cent stamps
to be used on envelopes containing
visiting cards ana" petite notes.
The suggestion comes from New
York. The parties who made it
believe that there would be a pop
ular demand for the miriatnre
stamps, on account of the pievail
ing 'custom of sending cards of
congratulation, condolence, fare
well, etc. The snbjVct has been
presented to Third Assistant Postmaster-General
Madden, who has
jurisdiction of postage stamp de
signs and issues, but he is not smit
ten with it. tie believes that, on
the contrary, the department would
more gladly issue a rule prohibit
ing the use of tiny envelopes. The
letter carriers lose them, the in
scriptions are otten difficult to deci
pher and they are accouuted a geu
eral nuisance by clerks aud post
masters everywhere. However, as
the small euvelopes can not very
well be abolished, Mr. Madden has
promised to see what can be done
in the may of preparing a stamp,
that will not entirely obscure
A CATTLE FEED EXPERIMENT
Tom Jones of Wichita county
and Dr. Victor A. Norgaard, the
latter having beeu connected up to
a year ago or so with the United
States departmeut of agriculture for
ten or twelve yerrs, are making
souu experiments which will be of
great importance to the cattlemen
below the quarantine line. The
object of the experiments is to find
some way by which cattle free from
ticks may cross the line at any sea
sou of the year. Dr. Norgaard's
plan is to dip cattle with u pre
paration which is believed will
eradicate the ticks and then with
the sanction and co. operation of
the state and Federal authorities
he proposes to ship a carload of
them to some point north of the
quarantine line where they will be
kept under observation as to their
ability to transmit Texas fever.
Every precaution will, of course be
taken to prevent the possible spread
of the disease. If these experi
ments prove to be a success it will
be difficult to estimate the benefit
to the cattle industry south of the
quarantine line. It is considered
by many that the value of the
southern cattle will be enhanced
from $2 to $5 per head, when the
northern cattlt markets are throwu
open to them throughout the year.

A little coal oil kept in the house
for cleaning purposes is of inest
imable value. It can be nsed in
polishing any glass surface, and it
will give better results than clear
water or any other liquid. Rnb
the oil on with a rag, and then rub
dry and polish. Window panes,
mirrors and other glass articles
should be thus treated.
