SOME USES OF QUICKSILVER
Increasing Demand Has Been Report ed In Manufacture of Electrical Appliances in Scotland. Quicksilver is used mainly in the manufacture of fulminate for explo sive caps, of drugs, of electric light ing and scientific apparatus, and in the recovery of the precious metals, especially of gold, by amalgamation. An increasing demand has been re ported in manufactures of electric ap pliances. An interesting and increas ing use in Scotland is the floating of the lights of lighthouses upon a body of quicksilver. The metal is not con sumed, of course, and the loss in use Is insignificant. Concerning this Con sul Fleming writes as follows, accord ing to the Geological Survey Bulle tin? “The commissioners of northern lighthouses, Edinburgh, have in their charge 90 lighthouses on the coast of Scotland. Up to the year 1900 the re volving lights were borne on rollers. The ‘float’ system has been gradually introduced, however, and is now in operation at 30 coast stations and will be used at all others. The lighting machinery rests on a pontoon which runs on quicksilver in a groove. The quantity of mercury required for this purpose in a lighthouse is from seven to eight flasks of 75 pounds each. As the waste is trifling, the total present demand for this purpose is small.” BANK NOTE TESTER IS HANDY Bill Is Held on Glass Stand in Front of Magnifying Glass—Examiner May Look Through It. It is rather interesting to observe that it was a woman, in California, who designed the bank note tester ehown herewith. Two standards sup port a horizontal shaft which has four p ' Bank Note Tester. * glass plates extending from it at equal angular intervals. On a slide at thu bottom a magnifying glass is ad justably mounted. This glass can be moved up and down, while the slide moves it toward or away from the standards, which support the bank note under examination. The note is laid against one of the plates and can ibe inclined from the lens at any angle desired, preferably a slight angle with the vertical, which permits of the ex aminer looking completely through it of there is a strong light on the other Iside, and counting the threads in the paper, which is one way of testing.

BOTTLE IS NON-REFILLABLE Device Consists of Porcelain Tube With Cork Binding About Its Base —Arrangements for Air. The latest device for making a bot tle impossible to refill is illustrated herewith. It is the invention of Seth E. Gill of Brooklyn, who has received patents for it in every country that grants patents. Mr. Gill’s device consists of a por celain tube with a cork binding about its base. This is inserted into the neck of the bottle, where the cork Diagrams of the Gill non-refillable bottle. Above, on right, section of the apparatus with the bottle upright; be low, when the liquid is pouring out. Above, on left, view of the apparatus ready to insert in the bottle. swells with moisture and holds it fast. Once in it cannot be removed without breaking, for its upper part is fragile, says the New York World. It is cast in two halves, each hav ing sockets for the hinges of the two valves. These latter are cast sepa rately. When they and the porcelain ball are put in position and the two halves fitted together they are held firm by the cork socket at the bottom and a ring at the top. When the bot tle stands upright the ball and the two valves close every aperture and nothing can be poured in. As soon as the bottle is tilted the pressure of the liquid from below opens the valves and permits the contents to be poured out. An ingenious arrangement on the side opposite to that on which the liquid is being poured admits just enough air to balance the outgoing stream.

USES FOR THE SCLEROSCOPE Its Special Function Is to Determine the Hardness and Elasticity of Various Surfaces. The scleroscope has been described as a kind of mechanical finger, intend ed to discriminate, by delicacy of touch, between various substances sub mitted to it. The ready detection of the degree of hardness and elasticity of various surfaces is its special func tion. It consists essentially of a little weight, like the hammer of a pile driver, which is allowed to fall inside a tube placed upright on the surface to be tested. The bottom of the ham mer, which weighs only a few grams, is finished with a blunted diamond, in tended to give it the requisite hard ness. After a fall it rebounds, and a carefully graduated scale on the tube, indicating the height of the rebound, shows the degree of hardness of the surface experimented with. On a piece 'of ordinary steel the hammer re bounds nine-tenths of the height of its fall. j Cellulose to Peat. Dr. F. R. Bergius, the scientist who has been conducting experiments in producing artificial coal, has, by em ploying a high temperature and a high pressure, changed cellulose to peat in a few hours. The same change by the process employed by nature, he states, required 7,000,000 years. Humane Invention.

Two men met during a gentle show er at the northwest corner of Penn sylvania and Washington streets. One "shad his umbrella up, the other carried his in his hand, evidently oblivious to the fact that he had an umbrella. “Hello,” said the oblivious one, “what are you doing with that um brella?” “Your umbrella?” “Yes, no doubt about it. I know it by the handle. There’s not another like it in town.” “Oh, there isn’t,” said the accused one, smiling extravagantly. “What’s j that you have in your hand?” “Eh? Why, that’s my umbrella,” said the oblivious one. “I —I forgot 1 that I had it.” —Indianapolis News. The Young Husband. "You’re an old married man.

Lame in the morning, suffering cricks In the back and sharp stabs of pain with every sudden strain, the day is just one round of pain and trouble. It would be strange if all-day back ache did not wear on the temper, but It is not only on that account that people who suffer with weak kidneys are nervous, cross and irritable. Uric acid is poison to the nerves, and when the kidneys are not working well, this acid collects in the blood and works upon the nerves, causing headache, dizziness, languor, an in clination to worry over trifles, and a auspicious, short temper. Rheumatic pain, neuralgia, sciatica, lumbago, neuritis and gravel are fur ther steps in uric acid poisoning. Don’t neglect kidney weakness. An aching back, with unnatural passages of the kidney secretions, is cause enough to suspect the kidneys.

The Russian Christmas falls on January 7. On that day St. Petersburg celebrates the birth of Christ by bless ing the River Neva. A procession of priests, followed by a huge crowd, march to the river, the ice is broken, and a cross dipped in the water. In spite of the intense cold, often many degrees below zero, piously-inclined persons rush into the river to bathe themselves in the sanctified water. A similar Christmas ceremony is en acted in those Roumanian towns which lie on the Danube, but in this case the people are dreseed to represent vari ous biblical characters, such as Herod, Pontius Pilate, etc., and the cross is | not merely dipped, but flung into the water. Then follows a terrific rush to secure the blessed emblem—a rush so fearful that often lives are lost, for it is firmly believed that its possession will bring the owner good fortune not only for the year, but for the rest of his life. Snail’s Real Pace. “At a snail’s pace’’ is a common ex pression and usually signifies very slow gait, but what do you suppose is the actual speed by a snail in trav eling? We can give it to you in accurate figures. One foot in four minutes, or at the rate of one mile in 16 days, if travel ing continuously. These are figures given by George Zahnizer, a civil engineer of this city, taken from actual observation. A short time since Mr. Zahnizer was standing along the Western New York & Pennsylvania railroad waiting for a train. He had nothing in particular to do and “killed a little time’’ by timing a snail which was creeping along the ground. That snail traveled just exactly one foot in four minutes, Mr. Zahnizer says, and computing distance at the rate of travel shown Mr. Zahnizer has figured out that it would require T 6 days for that snail to move a mile.

Along with the coffee habit has grown the prevalent "American Dis ease” —nervous prostration. The following letter shows the way out of the trouble: “Five years ago I was a great cof fee drinker and from its use I be came so nervous I could scarcely sleep at all nights. My condition grew worse and worse until finally the phy sician I consulted declared my trou bles were due to coffee. “But being so wedded to the bev erage I did not see how I could do without it, especially at breakfast, as that meal seemed incomplete with out coffee. “On a visit, my friends deprived me of coffee to prpve that it was harm ful. At the end of about eight days I was less nervous, but the craving for coffee was intense, so I went back to the old habit as soon as I got home and the old sleepless nights came near making a wreck of me. “I heard of Postum and decided to try it. I did not like it at first, be cause, as I afterwards discovered, it was not made properly. I found, how ever, that when made after directions on the package, it was delicious. “It had a soothing effect on my nerves, and none of the bad effects that coffee had, so I bade farewell to coffee and have used only Postum since.

A PHYSICAL WRECK New York City Woman Telit of Awful Suffering Mrs. Edith Dykeman, 154 W. 84th St. New York City, N. Y., says: “Three year* ago I was so run down in health that E was a nervous wreck. I was afflicted! with a severe case of disordered kid neys and doctors treated me without benefit. My kidneys acted either too free ly or else the action was retarded and the passages of the secretions caused me much pain. My back ached frightfully day and night and I often rolled and! tossed for hours, unable to go to sleep. In the morning I felt all worn out and was hardly able to do my housework. Whenever I stooped to pick up anythin* from the floor, I was hardly able to straighten again. I had terrible dizzy spells and specks seemed to be floating In front of me. If I walked up or down stairs, I was completely worn out from weakness. The least excitement brought on an attack of nervousness and I got so bad that it was hard for me to be up and around. My health was all run down. Someone advised me to take Doan’s Kid ney Pills and the first few doses helped me. I kept right on until I was entirely cured and I am now In the best of health.
