A Handy T ittle Contrivance that May B
Carried In the Pocket r Satchel.
Railroad water being often very bad, not
a few travelers will be glad to know of a
convenient portable filter t iat can be car
ried in the pocket or travelii g satchel, and
seems to act as a perfect cle nser. Such a
one, which is also conveniei t for a varietj
of uses, is described by Pt pular Science
News as follows:
For filtering ordinary hydrant water it
is immersed In a vessel containing th
water, and enough suction made on tbt
tube to make a siphon action, and, by al
lowing the vessel to remiJn under tht
hydrant, an unlimited supp j can be ob
tained, though of coarse ii not a large
stream. It can be used by dropping it in a
spring or other water, and by suction a
fair drinking stream can be obtained.
A rather wide mouthed bottle containing
an ounce or two Is the "bet t. A piece oi
glass tubing sufficiently long to reach the
bottom and extend to the top or above
about one-half an inch. A piece of black
rubber tubing such as is used on nursing
bottles is drawn over the end at the mouth
of the bottle. Absorbent cotton is then
tightly packed around the glass tube,
which rests on the bottom of the bottle.
Pack the bottle to the top. If desired,
wben about half full, a lay.T of ehftreoal
can be put in and the cottot parking con
tinued. A small package of cotton will
last a long while for repacking, as only the
top layers of cotton need be removed and
replaced by new for a considerable period.
About two feet of rubber tubing is all that
is necessary. The variations that can be
made are obvious. A mut'i larger one,
containing cotton, gravel and charcoal, has
been in use sircesflly for several
months. It is, first of all, clean, for we
can see when it becomes foul: its portabil
ity is unquestioned and its case of renew
ing U quite apparent.
College Men with Bis Heads.
Mr.Francis Galton is quoted as author
ity for the following conclusions in regard
to the size of the brain in university stu
dents: Although it is pretty well ascertained
that in the masses of the population the
brain ceases to grow after the age of nine
teen, or even earlier, it is by no means so
with university students.
That men who have obtained bigh hon
ors have had, on the average, conslderably
larger brains than others at the age of nine
teen. That they have, on the average, larger
brains than others, but not to the same ex
tent, at the age of twenty-five. In fact,
their predominance is at that time dimin
ished to about one-half of wht it was.
Consequently, high honor 1 len are pre
sumably as a class both more precocious
and more gifted throughout t,han others.
We must therefore look upon eminent uni
versity success as largely due to a fortu
nate combination of these twa helpful Con
ditions. A Freckle Itemed r.
The story is told that a Sou -h American
lady discovered some time ago by accident
a veritable remedy for frecklt. At a sea
son of great scarcity of water she washed
her face one day with the juice of a water
melon. The result was so scothing thttt
she repeatedly washed her fac in this man
ner, and her astonishment was great a few
days later on seeing that there was not a
freckle left on her previously befreckled
The Dulles or li out ens and Guest The
C harm of an American Count ry House.
o one possessed of his seusi-s would in
vite a person to his country house for the
purpose of making him unhappy. At least
so one would say at first thought. But it
is an obvious fact, according t Urs. Sher
wood, who is authority on manners and
social usages, that very many guests are
invited to the country housa of their
friends and are made extremely miserable
while there. They have to ri?e at unusual
hours, eat when they are not hungry, drive
or walk or play tenuis when they would
prefer doing auything else, a:id they are
obliged to give up those hours which are
precious to thetn for other dut.es or pleas
ures; so that many people after an experi
ence of visiting are apt to say, "Xo more
of the slavery of visiting for me, if you
"A lady guest," says Mrs. Shorwood, "la
npt to be a slave, from the fact that, as
yet, the American hostess has iiot learned
that the truest hospitality is to let her
guest alone und to allow her to enjoy her
self in her own way. A thoroughly well
bred guest makes no trouble i i a house;
she has the instinct of a lady a.id is care
ful that no plan of her hostess shall be dis
arranged by her presence. She mentions
all her separate invitations, desires to
know when her hostess wishes her pres
ence, if the carriage can take her hither
and yon, or if she may be allowed to hire a
"The charm of an American country
house is, generally, that it is a home and
9acred to home duties. A model guest
never infringes for oue niommt on the
rights of the master of the Louse. She
never spoils his dinner or his drive by being
late; she never seiAls him bacic to bring
her parasol; she never abuses his friends or
the family dog; she is careful to abstain
from disagreeable topics; she joins his
whist table, if she knows how to play; but
she ought never to be obliged to rise an
hour earlier than her wont because he
wishes to take an early train for town.
These early morning perfunctiry break
fasts are not times for conversation and
they ruin the day for many bad sleepers.
"There is no office in the wc rid which
ehonld be filled with such punctilious de
votion, propriety and self respect as that
of hostess. If a lady ever allows her guest
to feel that she is a cause of inconvenience,
she violates the first rule of hospitality.
If she fail in any way in her obligations aa
hostess to a guest whom she hits invited,
she shows herself to be ill bred and igno
raut of the first principles of politeness.
She might better invite twelve people to
dinner and then ask them to diie on the
pavement than ignore or withdraw froa a
written and accented invitation."
