I tig Harvesting Records el the Wost.
The farmers of the San Joaquin val ley, in California, utilize the largest ma chines in the world for harvesting and threshing their wheat crops. These machines are combined harvesters, that cut, thresh, clean, sack .and dump the grain on the ground ready to be stor ed. The traction engines which oper ate them are of 50-horse power. Last season some great records for harvesting were made. A twenty-foot sickle har vester, with what is termed a four-loot extension cut, threshed, cleaned and sacked 1,772 bags of wheat, or over 3,- 000 bushels a day. j^WIMMIMMISMM>MNMMiMk 1 UPRIGHT | $ £ & 4* m Straight and strong is the statue when tlte twists aud WW curvatures of k\ F $ 1 1 1 -fit Lumbago | S a a to /.\ W straiahteued ffi to' / |VWl|j\ oul **■ 1 ml' st i % k\\l/i Jacobs f | Oil | "41W39K9993: Y-99-5 5*9 Marconi's Groat Task. In his Dorsetshire laboratory, week in and week out, works Marconi, the ma gician of wireless telegraphy. He only visits London to attend meetings of the board of directors, and, thrice happy, he is spared the reading of all save the most pressing business letters. His dis covery has been natented in every civ ilized county, yet Marconi is aware that competitors are running him hard in the race for improvements and consequent ly he is never content with what has al ready been done. "YVe have proved the efficiency of Marconi's invention for a distance of 08 miles," said Major Flood Page, the secretary of the Marconi Company, "and I wish you could tell us how to cross the Atlantic." It is the solution of this distance dif ficulty which is now taxing the ingeni ous brain of the tireless Marconi. The curvature of the earth over so many miles of sea causes the trouble. To speak to Ostend. over forty miles, of water, necessitates the erection of a mast of communication 40 feet high, which is at the rate of a foot of mast per mile of distance. By this calculation, wire less telegraphy between Southampton and New York would require on either side a mast measuring about three thou sand feet in height—nearlv as high as Snowdon and 19 times the height of the Nelson Column. But Marconi is san guine of his ability to solve the mast problem, though it will, of course, take some high thinking and deep reflection. —London Express. Best For tho Bowels.

One of the essential things for one that would influence others is the abil ity. to see things as they look to those whom he addresses. A laca of this ability has been responsible for the failure of many persons that would otherwise have been successful as teachers, missionaries, lawyers before juries, and even orators and statesmen. Striking illustrations of the different aspects things wear in the eyes of dif ferent people are constantly coming to light. A party of American travelers, jour neying leisurely up the Nile, expressed a desire to celebrate Washington's birthday in some appropriate manner. Their chef accordingly prepared a I great frosted cake, upon which he ex j ecuted in confectionery a representa tion of George Washington, after hav ing familiarized himself with the life and achievements of his subject. As represented in sugar, Washing ton wore a turban on his head and a great sash across his breast; he was smoking a long pipe, and before him some dancing girls were performing. This was the way the greatness of George Washington looked to the Arab chief. In China, the land of strange con trasts, many amusing instances of a similar kind may be found "Pilgrim's Progress," as recently translated and illustrated by native artists, shows Chistian with a long pigtail, the dun geon of Giant Despair as the familiar wooden cage of Chinese criminals, while the angels are arrayed in the lat est productions of Pekin dressmakers. A Chinese publication describes Americans as "living for months with out eating a mouthful of rice," and never enjoying themselves "by sitting quietly on their ancestors' graves," but instead, jumping around and kicking a ball as if paid for it. How does this thing look to the Turk, the Chinaman, the Boer, the Englishman,the Northerner, the South erner, is the question that we should answer, in any controversy, before be coming too sure of our own position. All the world does not look through the same spectacles.—St. Louis Star. Iteitutlfiil Itutlerflloa. Swallow-tailed butterflies, like men in dress suits, always attract more at tention than their relations with just ordinary ends to their lower wings. Whenever you see a butterfly with a little tail-like extension at the lower corner of each anterior wing you may know at once that the creature's first name is papilio. If he is a big yellow fellow, with black edges to his wings and red, white and blue spots at the lower ends of his black wings, you may feel pretty certain that the hand some visitor is a papilio turnus —a typical Yankee, who carries the na tional colors about with him. I say "he" in referring to this big butterfly; as a matter of fact the males are small er than the females, sometimes to a remarkable degree. j There are 27 species of the [ the papilio family in America, and I some 500 varieties in the world. They include the most beautiful butterflies of the tropics. Nothing approaching these brilliant insects is ever seen any where except in a warm clime.—Cin cinnati Enquirer. Observation*. Youth loves light and laughter; maturity alone has use for the subtle ties of half-lights and pathos. Invective is the weapon of the illit erate; inuendo of malice; silence of power. If you can do nothing better for your contemporaries than to teach them the value of a good laugh. A childish old man is not half so woeful a sight as an aged youth. How awed would the original "Colo nial Dames be to meet their august descendants! One must visit a studio reception in Paris to know what the human curio is like. Epistolary decadence in the feminine I world is not to be deplored, consider- j ing how much woe it saves. A man cheapens himself who per- I mits a girl to snub him twice. It consoles some to think that once I at least they may ride in a carriage, I even if it be er route to the cemetery. —Philadelphia Accord. Muslin I) I van Pillows.

A great deal of nonsense has been talked in regard to the Injurious ef fect of flowers in the sick room. Flowers with a strong odor are dis agreeable to many people in health,and are much more so when their nerves have become supersensitive by illness. The presence of flowers with a delicate odor, or of those without fragrance, is generally beneficial. Certain colors are said to act favorably on the ner vous system. Red blossoms are said to be stimulating, and delicate blue ones to be soothing. The presence of growing plants is generally disap proved of by physicians because it has been found that the earth in which they are grown often throws out malarial germs. I>o Your Own Marketing, In nothing more than marketing does the old truism, " If you want anything done well do it yourself," apply. The woman who buys her own provisions Is mistress of the situation in more ways than one. The butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker all try to please the patron who knows what she wants, and refuses to be pleased with any thing short of it. A little woman was heard to say to a reliable butcher the other day : " I have just moved into the neighborhood, and want a butcher that I can trust to give me the worth of my money, and to advise me about the best and most economical cuts of meat. I do not want to pay for fancy cuts,but I want the best of everything." "That," said the butcher, as tlie wom an left, is the kind of customer that an honest man likes. But woe betide the dishonest dealer who tries to get tlie better of her. She is too wise to be fooleu." A I.otlon for Chapped HHIIIIS. A lotion which will keep the hands free from chapping in the coldest wea ther is the following. It can be put up at home by purchasing half a pint of rosewater, the same amount of glycer ine, and three ounces of critic acid. Mix the ingredients together in a quart bottle, and pour a few drops over the hands after washing dishes or uwug coarse laundry soap, or after exposing the wet hands in the cold. Dry the lo tion into the hands. When the hands have become chap ped, heal them with either almond cream or camphor ice. To make cam phor ice, melt three-quarters of an ounce of spermaciti and one ounce of gum camphor broken into bits in four ounces of almond oil by putting the in gredients In a cup set ill a pan of boil ing water. Stir the mixture repeatedly until the camphor, as well as the sper maciti, is finally dissolved, and then strain the camphor ice into little jars of the proper size. A ft A R£C/F£;S Vitos Muffins (new) —One cup of steamed vitos, one cup of flour, one scant half-cup of sweet cream, two tea spoonfuis of baking powder, whites of four eggs, and one-half saltspoonful of salt. Bake in hot oven 20 minutes. Use whites left from maple cream. Pickled Cauliflower—Boil the cauli flower in salted water (do not let it get too soft); then drain and break into small tufts ; put them into a wide neclced quart bottle, with six or eight bay leaves, the same of tarragon, a dozen peppercorns and a inch of bruis ed horseradish ; pour over hot, strong vinegar, and cork up. Fried Parsley—Fried parsley is an attractive garnish for croquetto, fish cutlets, sweetbreads, etc. The fresh, bright, green curled parsley should be used. Put it, perfectly dry, into a frying basket, and immerse it for 30 seconds in a kettle of deep fat, which is hot enough to brown a piece of bread in 60 seconds. Let it drain on brown paper. Compote of Oranges—To prepare a compote of oranges, pare, slice and re move the seeds from six large oranges Put these in alternate layers of two tablespoonfuls of water in a large dish, and stand in a cool place for three hours. At the end of that time, drain off the syrup from the fruit and put it in a saucepan. Add to it the juice of one lemon, and boil the mixture slowly for ten minutes. When it is cool turn it over the fruit. Apple Dowdy—Line the bottom and sides of a buttered pudding dish with Blices of buttered bread with crust re moved ; fill the dish with peeled and Bliced tart apples and a tablespoonful of shaved candied ginger. Mix a half cupful each of water and molasses to gether, and pour over the apples ; sprinkle over this a half a cupful ot brown sugar, and cover with more but tered bread ; place a tin plate on, and bake in a moderate oven two hours ; loosen the edges with a knife and turn onto a dish. Serve hot, with whipped cream sweetened. Good, and inexpen sive. SCIENCE AND INDUSTRY. The North Pole Is tho mathematical point at the northern termination of the earth's axis. Whether land or water be there the phenomena ot the sun during the polar day or of the star during the night would indicate tfs position. Tho village of Bracket in Belgium enjoys the fame of having originated one of the most celebrated races ol' domestic fowls. The Belgians do not hesitate to assert that the Brackel hens are unequaled for the excel lence and number of their eggs, while the roosters have developed, thanks to generations of cultivation and the Influence of "crowing tournaments," a power and rhythm of voice equally unrivalled. The breeders have a theory that the musical contests in which the Brackel roosters are trained serve to develop the peculiar qualities of the race. However this may be, it is certain that cultivation has differentiated these from all others. Professor F. E. Nlpher, in a recent communication to the St. Louis Academy of Science, described somq interesting experiments, having fori their purpose the devising of a de veloping process which will do away with the necessity for the dark room. He took a number of street views, Roentgen-ray photographs and "elec trographs" on plates that had re ceived preliminary exposures, and de veloped them by the light of an ordinary incandescent lamp, getting a good positive image. A great deal of work, says Nature, has already been done in this direction, but tho uncertainty of the reversal and the great difficulty of getting rid of mixed results of reversal and non reversal have BO far prevented any practical use being made of these methods. The use of sawdust as a fuel in Austria is discussed in a report from Consul Hughes of Coburg. He says that in Austria, where everything in the shape of fuel is being carefully investigated, sawdust is impregnated with a mixture of tarry substances and heated to the proper temperature, it is then passed over a plate of iron heated by steam, from which a screw conveyor takes it to a press, where it is compressed into briquettes of the required size. The press turus out 19 per minute, weighing two-fifths of a pound each, and measures Gx2%x114 inches. The caloric power is about the same as that of lignite, with but 4 per cent, of ash. One factory produced last year over 7,000,000 briquettes, costing about 16 cents per thousand, and selling at from 95 cents to 11. A correspondent of the British Medical Journal, who has lived in India, writes, apropos of mosquitoes and malaria, that some years ago, while on a hunting expedition in a very malarious district in the Bhotan Terai, lie succeeded in escap ing malaria by keeping within mos quito curtains till after sunrise and getting into them again as soon as possible after dark, smoking freely at the same time. Two out di four Europeans of the party, and nearly all of the natives, who did not take those precautions, suffered so ' se verely from malaria that the camp was unable to march after three weeks in the district. But there are places in eastern Bengal, he adds, where mosquitoes are very numerous and very annoying, which do not seem to be subject to severe malaria. Thus. Dacea. the only place where he was ever kept awake a whole night by mosquitoes, was looked on as a station free from severe malaria. He himself did not have a touch of it there, though he had previously suffered from the fever at Assam, ne thinks that this phase of the mos quito-malaria question Bhould be in vestigated. Tlia Miners of the World. The total number of workers of both sexes employed in extracting minerals from the bowels of the earth number altogether 4,355,204. In other words, they are about equal to the entire pop ulation of London. The minerals taken into account are coal, oil, stone and precious stones. The numbers of min ers in the various countries are given herewith : United Kingdom. 875,603 ; Germany, 498,509; United States, 444,- 678 ; India, 310,888 Ceylon, 310,210 ; France, 292,711 ; Russia, 239,435 ; Aus tria-Hungary, 219,227; Belgium, 160,- 150; Japan, 118,517 ; and South Am erican Republics, 100,006. During the past year the greatest output has been that of tho United States, the product of which attained a value of $89G,000,000; that of tho Uni ted Kingdom was worth $481,250,000 ; Germany , $187,500,000; France, $162, 500,000 ; the Transvaal, $106,125,000 ; Belgium, $75,000,000; Austria, $68,750,- 000. Canada, whose mineral deposits have as yet been very little exploited, produced $62,500,000. M usk Ox Wool. The Athenaeum states that the Kol thoff Arctic expedition has succeeded in bringing to Sweden a male and fe male calf of the musk ox. As soon as the animals are acclimated they are to be set free in the northern mountain regions, where it is thought they will speedily increase in number, as they are very prolific. Herr Kolthoff has great faith in the future importance of the musk ox, not so much as an arti cle of food, as on account of its thick brown-wool, which is said to be re markably strong.
