How the Product of this Factory is ManipulatedThe Di mentions of the Buildings Success due to the Genius of a PLYMOUTH MECHANIC. irt en Strange as if may seem to many who for Veers have lived in our smail bat beeatifnj citj il is a fact that not one our ol twenty nave made it their busi ness, (and it is their privilege? t visit the factory Of the Indiana Novelty af'fg. Sompany. 11 re in our very midst is i ice ted the largest and first factory in the world devoted entirely to the manufac' ore of bicycle wood wwrk exclusively and we think it just and proper that tor the benefit ol those who have no knowledge of its magnitude to enter into a short description . The Indiana Novelty Manwfactnring Company, of i lymonth, Ind., began in lu:, the manufacture of wood rims, by the iii vent ion of (ieo. V. Marble, of the joint used in its one piece rims which Consists of a series of tongues a hi 5 grooves formed in the ends of a smjjle bent piece and interlocked, forming a snug litt nig dovetail. Th ? first rims were marketed in the year and up to and Including the month of June 1K5 over 700jOOO had beeo sold. Though at Hist hard to in troduce they become at once much sought after when the merits of vv od over iron as a material for bicycle i uns were fully appreciated. The method involved in tho bending of the wood, as used by this com pany is not new though it is done by meam- employed at present in none of the other lactones ol 'he kind. It con sists simply of steaming the straight piece and bending by steel bands over au iron form and securely fastening. It is t . en placed upon 'arge cars, each with a capacity ol 960 runs, and placed in the drying overis or kilns and allow- F ed to remain a sufficient time to thoroughly dry. When removed from this hot air it is taken to the joint saw ing machines and t lie dovetailing and glueing up performed. Tha application of a clamp to the glued joint holds it firmly in place while the glue ests and after a few hours it is ready for the forming or turning procesH. This is done on especially designed high speed let bee and at once taken to the sanders. Here a change from a rough surface rim tonne as smooth as ass is done in a remarkably short tune through the agency of a machine which revolves the rim while l tie sand paper nig is in progress. As rims are ordered in various differ- flit styks, finish and drillings the pro cess from this point varies considerably. Somj are allowed to be shipped in the plain wood to be enameled by the bi- (i oc- manufacturer while others are f,et runs along the north side of the dulled especially for a certain number central main building.

"(Joct. pure cream, ripe fruit, or the , test canned fruit in winter and gran ulated sugar, make yerfect ice cream." writes Mr?. 8. T. Rorer in the Ladies" Horn' .Journal. "Good ice cream can not be made without a good freezer one working easily with a side rank sod a doable dasher. Scald half of the cream ami dissolve in it the sugar. This will prevent the cream from churning to batter. When raw cream is frozen it Ikis a frothy, snowy taste; the taste of the flavoring is not promi nent and it is neither smooth nor vel vety in appearance. After the mix ture is prepared, before turning it into the freeslng can see that the latter is 'n good order. Adjust the dasher, la.-ten on the crank and give it a turn to see that it is all right. Remove it for a moment, pour in the mixture ind readjust four-quart freezer will require twenty pounds of ice and one Snarl of coarse rock salt. Put a layer of salt in the bottom of the tub. then a layer of Ice about thrpe inches in depth, another layer of salt, another of ice and so on to the top of the can Turn the crank slowly and steadily until it begins to require force. If the can is properly packed the cream will require from fifteen to twenty minutes to freeze. Cream frozen too quickly is not smooth. The length of time required depends entirely upon thp packing, not upon the freezer. The more salt is used, the less time will be required for freezing; the more quickly the Ice mlts the more quick y will the heat he drawn from the cream TVater ices require more time for fraez !ng than ice creams." A CHILD'S LONG JOURNEY. Mutual NmI TmitIi from tUnlauU t Alak. Seattle TfmeSj Traveling from Fin land to Alaska without speaking a word that any one understood, without a single traveling companion, or with out meeting a person who knew him. from one end of the journey to the other, is no small undertaking, but it has just heu cuiupleted by an eight-year-old boy. Magnus NesskW left a pleasant home iu far away Finland on June :i to join his father and mother who are working at PowgtSS City. He made this long voyage across the great pond in the steerage of one of the big ocean steamers. Here he was not so lonely, as there were other Finlander on the boat who talked the language he could understand. At new York there was no delay, owing to a careful ly written shipping card, which had been sewed securely on the back of his coat before he started on the long journey. This did away with the ne-;e.-sity of talking as tar as getting through without delay was concerned. His tlckel had been purchased to cover tue entire distance, and the card di rected him to Circle City Hotel, at Juneau. He reached Seattle in time to make good connections with the Alas ka boat, and was forwarded to Doug las by friends. His father and mother have not seen him since he was a baby, over seen years ago, when they left Finland to come to the United States. Magnus is a well built boy, with hair and eyes characteristic of his ra e. He is exceptionally bright, and has already picked some Rngllsh. H made friends with everybody on the steamer with whom he came in con tact, although he could only talk to them by signs Mr Pi jm and the ültter. Chicago Tribune. Louisville. Ky. Is it a romance?

Mr. Bryan was -dartled. He leaned forward, and I name was whispered in his ear. He still clasped the hand of the nun. whose cowl had fallen back, and re vealed a face that showed traces of great beauty. There was a whispered conversation, but not until the train moved slowly awsiy did they break their hand clasp. " knew her long ago." was all the explanation Mr. Bryan gave to tu party.
