The tinsmith of this century will not think of carrying around with him a big pot of charcoal in which to build a fire and heat his soldering irons, says the Philadelphia Keeord, but will In stead connect his iron to r.n incandes cent electric lipht socket or a pas jet. obtaining his heat from either the cur rent or ffame. An extremely practical iron of the latter class has recently been placed on the Herlin market. As is apparent from the illustration, tlie copper bit which comes in contact with the solder to melt and apply it to the IUOX WITH SELF HEATING HIT. metnl is movable and can be placed at any desired angle. By virtue of this form of construction the Iron is of great convenience in soldering metallic edges so located as to be difficult of ac cess. A Hunsen burner is used to generate the beat, which is utilised to its fullest extent, owing to the prevention of radiation by the open space beneath the copper bit and the concentration of the flame of pas and air directly on the bit itself. This system of heating develops 11 sufficiently high tempera ture to permit of the employment of a comparatively small piece of copper in tlie lit and also economizes in the amount of pas consumed. It is reported that a soldering iron of this kind, which docs the work of an ordinary soldering iron possessing a heavy copper bit. consumes only about three and one-half cubic feet of gas per hour. The size of the flame can be regulated at will, while the apparatus can be attached to any gas Jet and op erated without the aid of bellows. The short length and comparatively light weight of the iron make it a most con venient tool to manipulate. An Arctic Rallvrar. The most nor f hem railway In the world is the line from Navik. in Nor way, across Lapland, connecting the Baltic with the Atlantic and giving access to valuable ore deposits. It reai hcs latitude 68 degrees -7 minutes and thus lies within the arctic circle. The White I'ass railroad in Alaska reaches a latitude of uo degrees., The total distance from Navik. on OfOten Sold, to Lulea, on the gulf of Bothnia, is is:; kilometers, or 300 miles. At Boden, not far from Lulea. the new- railway Intersects the Swedish railway system, extending southward on the one hand to Stockholm and the rest of the peninsula acd on the other to st Petersburg and the whole network of Bosslan railways. From Navik to SL Petersburg, s distance of 1,800 kilo meters, there is now continuous rail way communication and from St. l'.e- tersbtirg on over the line of the St berian railway to Vladivostok. By the completion of this railway the line ucross Europe and Asia connecting by rail the Atlantic and the Pacific oceans is achieved, the distance being ll.OtK) kilometers, or about 7.4o miles, and at the average speed of thirty kilo meters per hour the journey from ocean to ocean may be made in about sixteen days.

"This club life." said Arnold Bate to himself, "is becoming intolerable." Going to the coat loom, he took his hat and 1 ana and sauntered to his house. The next morning on Arnold Bates plate at the breakfast table was an en velope with several inciosures. When he had been a child he was thrown into constant companionship with Tim othy Sinclair, a young man of twenty. Sinclair had married and passed out of Bates' life. One f the inciosures an nounced Sinclair's death, another stnt td that he had appointed liates puard lan to his only child, a little pirl. with the request that he would take full charge of her. "Mrs. Winfield." exclaimed Bates to his housekeeper, springing up and walking excitedly back and forth, "pre pare rooms for a guest! No, not a, guest one to be here permanently." "A gentleman, sir?" "Gentleman 1 No. I have all the men's society I want. A child a little girl." "Yes. sir." Several days later a telegram was received that the ward was to arrive that evening. Dates went home un usually early to see that all was in readiness. "Will you have a high chair for her at the dinner table, sir''" asked the housekeeper. "I don't know. I wonder how old she is. I have no idea." "I'll put one at her place, and if she doesn't need It I can take it away." Bates spent the time till the arrival of his ward walking through the rooms prepared for her or trying to read the evening paper, constantly smiling In spite of himself at the prospect of hav ing a child in the house. Suddenly be heard a carriage drive up and stop be fore the house. Springing to tin- front door, he opened it fast as a pirl appar ently about eighteen years of age mounted the steps. She stood looking nt him. he at her. "I suppose you are the governess?" said Dates. "The poverness?" "Have you pot the child in the car riage?" "What child?" "The little Sinclair pirl." "I am Lillian Sinclair." "What?" "Are you Mr. Bates?" "I am. and 1 am expecting my ward, the little daughter of my boyhood friend. Timothy Sinclair. 1 supposed of cotirse some one would bring her to me. and as you have arrived when she is expected I naturally But don't Stand here. Come into the house." "Why. Mr. Bates," said the girl after they were inside, "did you suppose your ward to be a child?" "Because tin- letter notifying me of the charge quoted the words of Mr. Sinclair referring to her as a child." "liil you understand when those words were written?" "No." 'The will by which my father com mitti d me ii your care was made twelve years ago. when I was six years old." Dates stood in that dazed condition usual with otie whose expectations have been suddenly shifted. "And you. a young lady, are my ward?" " I am if you are Mr. Arnold Dates." "Il'inph!" This was spoken aloud, but there was more that he thought. "What the dickens am I going t do with her? The young lady was also evidently put ut. "I supposed you were an old man." she said in a disappointed tone. "I am. in the eyes of people of your age; I'm thirty-six. Well, come in to dinner. We'll talk it over." He ushered her into the dining room. The girl took off her wraps, and Dates in his confusion, without noticing what he was doing, pointed to the high chair. The girl burst into a laugh. "Take that thing away!" he said to a servant. The chair was removed and replaced by oni' fitted for a grown person. Then' was a very" pleasant dinner. The housekeeper occupied a position at the table, and when the coffee was served Mr. Bat-s said to her: "Mrs. Winfield, do yon suppose you'll do for a chaperon for this young lady?" 'Certainly. I'm old enough to he her mother, and yours, too. for that matter." "Very well. She'll remain with us. I would suggest y .ur making some changi-s in her apartments more lie fitting her age. Never mind: I'll do it myself." And, rising, he hurried up stairs. Lillian Sinclair heard something drop in the hall. Going out there, a large wax doll lay on its back staring nt the ceiling. A doll's baby carriage came next, then a box of baby dishes. In a few minutes there was a heap in the hill, and Bates Shouted over the banister to a servant to "remove the rubbish." After a while became down and Informed his era id that her room was ready for her. Never did guardian give more tin. and attention to a ward. Bates de serted his club to supervise the finish ing of Miss Sinclair's education, and in a year after she came to live at his houe announced to her that he was looking for a bualmml for her. She declined a!l the candidates he brouclit forward, and when he was discourag ed at ha Ting failed to please her he consulted Mrs. Wffifletd. "La. sir." s.;id the housekeeper. "She'll never marry any one but you." One week from that time the guard ian and ward were engaacl. and even tually the room originally designed for the lady's play room was used for the purpose by her da tighter. JAMES CABTEP. S'.'OTT.
