IIo took n Hour harrcl ami y i;ip liox that had washed ashore, : .1, with linmincr aid nails from tii'. wreck, be noon tin! 'hid a per fectly practical wheelbarrow. This is tho way to do what ho (lid: Take tho two heads out of a harrcl. ,T)o it carefully, so that the wood shall Viot ho split. Now lay those two heads on top of each other, in such a man ner that the cracks in the upper one will he nt right angles to the cracks in tho lower one. The Idea, of course. Is that tho grain of tho wood shall lie halanced so that whatever way the strain may come the -wheel will not tpllt under it. Having placed tho two heads care fully together so that they are ex actly true, nail them to each other with short nails, driving some In one side and some in the other. In figure 5 the dotted lines show how the head that' is underneath should lie In relation to the top one. After the two parts have heen firmly nailed together so that they will not yield, take a piano and carefully smooth off the edges of the wheel that has hc?u, thus made, so that it will be perfectly round. Be careful to plane only a very little nt one time, A good wray to make sure that the wheel is true Is to draw a circle o j-i -t the size I the wheel. You can make it with a "piece of a string and si nail for a compass. Then you can lav the wheel on tho drawing from time to time to compare if until it is perfect. ' Now, got two pieces of wood about .'four inches wide, three - quarters of an" inch thick and four feet long and shape the ends into neat, comfort able handles, as shown in C in figure 1. To the square end of each handle (at K, iu figure 2) nail a wedge-shaped block. Th'iv block should be made of a piece of wood about four inches square on rW side-?. One edge should be pointed) just like the wedge. The other end-' of it should be about threc ,; p ! -of an inch thick. ivnif'this to the square end of each handle,v'as shown in II, figure 3.

Close all crevices with shellac. Fill the bottle half waj with water, in which you drop the two powders belonging to a scidlitz pow der. The carbonic acid gas generated tries to escape through the funnel. But by placing two or three small balls made of a cork iu the funnel the gas can escape only a little at a time, as cue or the other of the little balls will keep tho opening of the funnel closed until the pressure of the gas becomes strong enough to force the ball up. In such a way a part of the gas escapes, tho pressure is relieved, and another ball closes up the funnel opening. This will keep ou until all the gas is ex hausted. This experiment can be made more effective by painting the balls iu dif ferent colors. Or you can make but terfly wings of tissue paper, which you can color and fasten to the balls, as shown in York Tribune. ' illustration. New A Tee-Totum.

"I can rcicml'.e my enemies," she combined, "even win golden opinions from strangers, but my fritmls bid fair to ruin me." It Is sad, but true, that friendu are generally the worst props that a fash ionable woman can lean on in misfor tune. They mean well, but they criti cise sharply, and one would have to be an angel to please them. If they order a gown from a friend who has taken up drossnia'tlng, they first announce that they fed obliged to give tho com mission, ami then they cavil over (lie work, the cut, the finish, the style. This seems hardly iair. If an order to help out a friend is given hi kindness the same kindness should prevent criti cism which might Injure. . "I haven't a single thing I like this reason," Availed a really kind-hearted woman. "So many of my friends have gone into business that I have had to buy my season's outfit from them a walking dress from one, a dinner gown from another, a hnt from a third and so on." This was said at a luncheon. and her audience was amused, but her friends would probably have preferred it if she had been less kind about her orders and more circumspect with her tongue. New York Tribune. Wnmnn P.iink Cashier Tired. Mrs. Sarah F. Dick, assistant cash ier of the First National hank of Huntington, Ind.. for more than thirty years, will, in a few days, retire from that institution, says the Indianapolis News. She retires on account of ill health and a desire to take care of her aged father. The bank has been reor ganized, and flattering terms were of fered Mrs. Dick to remain, but she thought she had served her time and was anxious to quit. Mrs. Dick is one of the only two women cashiers of National banks in America, and has established a repu tation in banking circles as an expert. The First National hank of Hunting ton was organized many years ago. It not only had tho only woman cash ier, but it was the only bank In the country that had women directors. In lSGO Mrs. Anna A. Daily succeeded to her husband's interests in the bank, and in 1S71 she was elected a director. The Controller of the Currency object, cd to her appointment, but it was shown that she could legally act, and after some delay she was accepted. In 1873 the widow of Samuel II. Tuni ance was elected a director, and In 1SS1 Mrs. Ann P. Slack, at the death of her husband, succeeded him as stockholder and director, and jn l?sp Mrs. Fredericka Drover was elected a director. For twenty years the major ity of the Board of Directors of the bank were women. In January, 1S71, Miss Sarah F. Mc Grew, daughter of the President of the bank, was appointed assisiant cashier. She became Mrs. Sarah F. Dick iu 1S7S, and three years later was ap pointed cashier of the bank, a position she held until she resigned of her own accord. Her career as a business woman at tracted attention all over tho United States. She has been a salaried officer for thirty-one years and holds the rec ord for the greatest number of trans actions in one day G07 in 300 minutes of "open hours," or one in each thirty five seconds. Trninlnj of Women TTorlcrg. There is a distinctly large idea rep resented in the foundation of a certain new educational institution in Bos ton. That Attic town and the acad emic groves by Which it is surrounded already overflow with schools. Har vard and Weilcs'oy are in its suburbs, and tho Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a great technical college, leads a workaday life cn the edge of a section inhabited by its leisured classes. This last-named school has always admitted women to all its classes on exactly tho same terms as men; yet women avail themselves to but a very limited extent of the op "orti";T. There are seldom in the very largo classes of the Institute of Technology, comprising hundreds of men, more than three or four women candidates for the degree of Bachelor of Science. Though women have now entered the arts and ' crafts in competition with men, and are to be found in almost every employment, they are still in the struggle as women. They have been able to maintain a certain proper sep- arateness in their industrial situation I in spite of the fact that the exigen I cles of their life compel them to mingle j with men. They recognize the fact that they are not on the same foor , jng with men in the trades, and doubt- Jess they do not wish to be. In their C'l.t!:n tker cv'.Jrally r;Wj to vzlz- VIEWS v wot V i iaiii a b.miiar ii-.nepemlent position. After a sudden pli:n,e, as It were, into o "education, women themselves arc now bringing about a reaction toward separate educat Ion. It Is of Interest, therefore, that under au endowment provided by the will of .John Simmons, of Huston, who died thirty years ago, a women's industrial college has been opotmd in that city under the very shadow of tho co-educational Massachusetts Institute of Tech nology. Its purpose is to train women in the arts and crafts, and to train them by themselves. Simmons College has been opened with 1'jri fall students. It Is perhaps a forerunner of other in stitutions, which shall recognize t ho need of women to earn their bread, and to earn it with the help of a train ing not cidy of the constructive facul ties, but of tho intellect in a more ab stract sense, while at the same time they guard her from too harsh a clash with the struggling masculine world. New York Mail and Exprr"' Five hi.ndrod anu two patents have boon taken out by women in Germany since 1S77. Miss Kate Livingstone, of Finnish, Isle of Mull, a cousin of the famous explorer, Dr. Livingstone, has just completed her 107th year. Miss Helen Gould is now an honor ary member of the fire department of Tarrytown and of Roxbury. 'While Miss Gould Is not liable to active fire duty, she is a full-fledged fireman, and i3 eligible to a scat in any State con vention of firemen. There are more than 500 women's clubs in Pittsburg and its vicinity, most of which have interested them selves in establishing and maintaining, with little help from the directors of public education, an excellent system of summer schools and playgrounds. Mrs. Gertrude B. Williams, of Nor walk, Ohio, is the great-great-granddaughter of a soldier of the French and Indian war of 17C3, a great-granddaughter of a soldier of the Revolution ary war, a granddaughter of a soldier of the War of 1S12, daughter and wife of soldiers of the Civil War, and mother, of two soldiers of the late Spanish-American War. ,vft . , A college girl, who has a record as an athlete is Miss Helen Downers, of Elmira College, who won first place in six of the field day events recently. She has been elected. President of the Elmira College Athletic Association. Miss Downes believes that an ath letic training is essentially a good thing for college women, and says she has been greatly benefited iu health by it. Pressed velvets are very modish. Peasant embroideries are replacing the Persian. Pique for tho winter shirt waist is fleece-lined. Velvet ribbons as well as chenille intermingle effectively with ribbon. Bash and belt pins are fashionable, and come iu almost every conceivable design. Among the new and stylish outdoor bodices the Siberian blouse is most effective. Sunburst plcatings are always pret tiest for skirts, and these are set al most scant this season. Jeweled bands of velvet in Prussian ; effect are a smart finish on elaborate ! imported evening dresses. Tho blouse jackets so popular give ample scope for the display of many ornate and handsome buckles. Butterflies of black lace are an odd and new garniture much used as ap pliques on white evening gowns. Little uru-down collars of fur finish most of the coats that have any collar extending above the Lase of the r.eck. hoses as ay ell as giapes go to make up the pretty design that embellishes one beautiful dress oi crepe do chine.
