fire fighting apparatus. Thus only a In
comparatively small number of such It

The portable head. complete, weighs t

.t1 Substitutea For Pneumatio Tires.
nd It is safe to say that no subject, has
areceved more careful thought and at- h
c- tention from inventors within the last d
lyear than the tire problem. But not
Tor one of the scores of recently patented t
Sdevices is quite equal to the plain ar
Stillery wheel ftted with pneumatic tire. a
Most of the devices employ springs to
take up the jar between the tire and
U the axle and use solid'rubber or simi
ore lar material for the actual tread of the j
bay tire. Ingenious as many of these
/ schemes are, they are bound to be less
the serviceable than the pneumatic tire.
g due to the number of moving parts e
which are subject to wear and break- n
eage. Furthermore, there is a great tend
- ency to rattle and jar whenever a
Ssmall obstruction is met by the tire.
SSo, although the problem of substitute
for pneumatic tires has not been en
c tirely solved, much work is being done.

time until we may expect something t

Oil From Rubber Plant 8ads.a
The vegetable oil used in making pa- t
re per mbrellas In Japan is pressed out
ad of the seeds of the rubber plant This
oil is made in the various islands fa
Smous for oil and seeds from these
ea plants. Sandy ground is favored for the 1
an- ctltivation of the plant, and the oil is
extracted from the seeds by presses.
The yield of seeds is estimated at twen
on- t bushels per ares The annual pro- 1
of duction throughout Japan amounts to
S0~000 baushels, from which over a gal
be Ion of oil per bushel is extracted. The
oil before it Is used is boiled and then
by cooled until it can be applied by hand o
to umbrellas with a piece of cloth or
waste. No machinery or tools are used
in applying the oil. When the oiling is
ea complete the umbrellas are exposed in
as the n for about ve hours. This oil is
o also used in making the Japanese Ian
ion terns, artificial leather, printing ink.
Slcquer, varnishes, oil paper and paints.
Hew to Cool Hot Bearings.
de Newly babntted bearings are some
Sof times inclined to run hot. In a case
Sof this kind, after scraping the box
uh well to make the shaft fit closely
Ina the box, use some good light oil
assmixed with common sulphar. Salphor
contains just enough-grit to grind the
or. babbitt smooth, but will not Injure
the shaft. Other material having a
grit should not be used, as it is liable
Sto grind a shoulder on the shaft.
muh Should the bearing run hot after using
the sulphur and oil then use white
lead and water-a very cooling mix
tuertr Keep the shaft running and
thl pour white lead and water into the

the shot down the machine while the
the bearing is bhot, as the babbitt will con
Stract and stick the shaft.
Hew to Clean Jewelry.
heir To cleanse articles of silver, gold.
the broe and brass use a saturated sola
Sotion of cyanide of potassiam. To clean
small articles, dip each one into the so
) lution and rinse immediately in hot
to. water; then dry and polish with a linen
cloth. Larger articles are cleaned by

see how, in spite of yourself, they will

taken up It will be found that on the "
palm and on the under side of the 8
Ir angers are numbers of nerves sensi- P
° tive to touch which respond as read t
- Ily as the nerves of the eye do to color s
or the nerves of the ear drum to "
i- sound. These were the principal pro
r tection of our tree living ancestors, for b
y an immediate clutch at a branch was d
' necessary in rapid travel in the lower a
t. branches of great forest trees. The
it sensitiveness is being lost, but it ise
being lost slowly. Yet even today we
11 can no more prevent responding to the
I stimulation of the sense of touch it. a
,r our hands than to the sensation of
light in the eye or sound in the ear.

"COOKING A PILL"
It That Is What Opium Smokers Call
"Hitting the Pipe."
is The opium smoker in the act of
e smoking is said to be "cooking a pill.'
Ie Smokers of tobacco In seeing opium
Ipipes have been misled into the belief
that the large bowl of the pipe is filled
r with opium when really the "pill" is
c simply pasted over a tiny opening in
the cover of the bowL Heating of the
r bowl produces dense fames, which are
to drawn through the bowl and the stem
er of the pipe into the smoker's mouth.
1 Neither does one pipe of opium pro
i, duce stupor. A "pill" dazes only even
e an inexperienced smoker as a large
e drink would efect a person unused to
Ir, alcohol. The opium users who have
c been pictured stretched on bunks of
opium dens in utter stupor have been
In saturated with the drug.
t Reclining on a bed, the smoker places
the layout within easy reach and lights
'n the lamp. Peanut oil. burning slowly
ti and without evil odors or fumes, Is used
rk exclusively. The smoker is then ready
to prepare his "pilL"
The yen-hok. or dipper, a long. nee
die shaped Instrument, is put into the
opium receptacle and turned slowly In
Ia the black and sticky substance until a
td small quantity of opium adheres to the
in point. It is then placed over the flame
e of the lamp, and. turning the dipper,
the smoker rolls and cooks the "pill"
Suntil it is ready for the pipe
iThe ty spck is then thrust into the
opening of the bowl, which, held above
tm lamp, salowly begins to produce
opinm fumes, whichb rm drawn oin by
the smoker through tmhe stem of his
pipe The " l" lasts oly from thirty
to forty secad, and to enjoy another
smoke the sme prepations have to
be repeated.-New York Trithown

S Walking Head Down.
A theatrical apparatus hasi been pat

which a series of vacuum cups open at
Stheir bottoms are arranged in a row
and controllable means are provided
' for exhausting air from the aid cups
ad nfor admitting alr to them, and the
performer has plates secured to his
Sfeet and adapted to operate as closures
for the cups, so that by properly manip
ulating the controlling devices the per
former can walk head down along the
row of cups.
,ending Cast Iren.
Few mechanics know that cast iron
can be bent or straightened, as the
case may be, says Popular Mechanics.
For example, take a piece of fiat cast
tiron, place it on a level, slid surface
and strike it lightly with a ball peen
hammer. If this simple experiment Is
tried it will be found, to the surprise
of the experimenter, that metal of this
kind readily yields to the light blows
of a hammer. Do not strike hard
enough to break or crack the casting.
