the f : r 1 a 1 out of It an J well to the
beach, where It would be Pfe from
tiih s 1 storms entailed much labor,
so l " set to work to mak'o u wheel
barrow. 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.

handle,v'as shown in II, figure 3.

Get a bottle v.ith a wide opening and
close It with a cork in which a glass
funnel is inserted. 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,

claimed a reduced fcentlowoman who
had gone into trade. "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

from another, a hnt from a third and
so on." This was said at a luncheon.

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
Her career as a business woman at

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

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.
