the Old Hand Furnace.
The tinsmith of this century will not

big pot of charcoal in which to build a
fire and heat his soldering irons, says
the Philadelphia Keeord, but will In

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

"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
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
"Will you have a high chair for her
at the dinner table, sir''" asked the
"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?"
"Have you pot the child in the car
riage?" "What child?"
"The little Sinclair pirl."
"I am Lillian Sinclair."
"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?"
'The will by which my father com
mitti d me ii your care was made

"Il'inph!" This was spoken aloud,
but there was more that he thought.
"What the dickens am I going t do
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

"Take that thing away!" he said to
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

"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

serted his club to supervise the finish

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

consulted Mrs. Wffifletd.
