ESKIMOS REUNITED TO WORLD. Those of Greenland's East Coast Again in Tsncn with Civilization. The Eskimos of the east coast of Greenland hare been reunited to the m orld, after having forgotten, perhaps for many years, the little they ever know of it, says th9 Philadelphia Pub lic Ledger. The Danish supply steam ship Godthaab has returned to Copen hagen from a visit to Angmagsalik, a station established by the government for the purpose of improving the con dition of the Greenland natives and developing a trade with them. It Is an Interesting enterprise, because Den mark's dealings with aboriginals are humanizing and philanthropic, and the material it had to deal with here was In its natural condition. As far as is known, the natives of Greenland's east ceast had never come Into contact with the white race until twenty years ago, when they were dis covered by Capt Holm, a Danish ex plorer. It was six years later before anything store than fragmentary infor mation about them was given out, and then Denmark published a sumptuous work in three volumes devoted to the people and their habitat Probably no other book so exhaustive and costly has orer been printed about a handful of primitive people. They numbered only MS when they were discovered. The supply steamship reports at Copenhagen that the East Greenland station Is In thriving condition. It has simply transformed the life of the na tives. They have knives, timber, metal points for their harpoons and a hun dred comforts and conveniences they never knew before. The Danish gov ernment buys their oils, furs, skins and feathers. The station takes every thing they have to sell In exchange for the commodities they require. A way has been found around the glaciers jutting out into the sea which se long barred attempts to travel around the south end of Greenland. A few parties have made sledge jour neys to the Eskimo settlements of the west coast, and seme of them have set tled there. They have never beard of spirituous liquors. They are pure-blood Eskimos,' the only unmixed natives in Greenland, ex cepting In the Smith sound region; but their features are thinner and longer than those of other Eskimos, and they a HttlA Ta11i than thn At tho west coast They have the dimmest tradition that their fathers came from the north, and considerable evidence has accumulated pointing to the prob ability that they are the descendants of natives who reached northwest Greenland from the archipelago north of our continent and then 6klrted the , north and east coasts of Greenland to their present abode.

In July, 1883, I began to break out with Eczema on my head, legs and arms, and began treatment with local doctors, but did not get much relief. They said the dis ease hadbecome chronic. I then quit them and tried various ointments and soaps for anoiner two Tears, cat as soon as cold weather came I was as bad off as ever, so I finally decided to let medicine alone, and for twelve or thirteen years did nothing towards curing the Eczema, except batli . fng.

Lights the Fire on Time. There are not many inventions of foreigners patented, at the United States Patent Office, but occasionally a good one, generally out of the or dinary, is sent there and a patent ap plied for. In the illustration below will be found an appartus, the inven tion of an Australian, which contains several good features. It Is called a time fire lighter, and the mechanism is so constructed that by placing it under a fire the latter can be auto- HATCH TJGnTS AT TIME DK8IBKD. mattcally lighted at a predetermined time. Its uses are varied, net only for domestic, but for manufacturing pur poses as well. The clock Is set similar to setting an alarm clock, with an at tachment for regulating and project ing a trigger at the time determined. A match is Inserted In a slot designed for that purpose, and when the right moment has arrived the trigger is re leased, which projects a bolt in eon tact with the match. The surface of the bolt Is rough, so that the friction which is caused by coming In contact with the head of the match ignites the latter. Emil M. G. Coiman, of Melbourne,' Victoria, Australia, is the patentee. Delivery Chute. Many of the numerous Inventions patented contain novelties more theo retical than practical, and for this rea son never get on the market The ideas are generally good, but when it comes to putting them in use it Is often impossible to do so. A delivery chute, which is exceedingly novel, in Its features. Is shown in the illustra tion, and it is a device that could read ily be used fox a groat many purposes. It is a common sight to see several men- delivering barrels and storing them in the cellar of a building, the usual method being to allow the barrel to gradually slip down a pair of ropes. BEQUXATES SPEED OF THE BABREL. Of course, the barrel could not be al lowed to roll down the steps or chute, for the " velocity attained would be sure to cause damage or possible in jury to anybody that happened to be in the way This seems to be a cum bersome method in comparison to the one . shown here. This inclined chute is . constructed similar to ordinary chutes, with side extensions to guide the course of the barrel or package. AN AUTUMN NIGHT SCENE. Vivid Word Picture of a Clear Night in the Focono Mountains Wonderfully clear and distinct the myriad s tiers appeared. South of the zenith a planet blazed.' Like a broad band overhead stretched the milky way with familiar constellations on each side. Almost in the center was Casseopia's chair. Near by gleamed Andromeda and the stars of Perseus. Just above the northern horizon lay the big dipper, and In the east Alde baran was rising, with the stars in the belt of Orion twinkling near. A faint streak which lasted but an In stant showed where a meteor's career had been burned to dust There was no moon to dim the light of the lesser stars, and everywhere around the brighter ones they, crowded, leaving no spot of this rare autumn sky with out its sparkling points of light Out of a dusty corner of memory came a thought which youthful fancy had conceived; that the stars were tiny holes in heaven, used by the angels to peep through to see if people were good or bad, and the light of the stars was the glory of the . (Treat white throne shining through the peepholes. - To senses steeped in the quiet of this brooding scene came like a shock the realization that in the north, close to the summit of a dimly outlined mountain spur, a faint phosphorescent light was glowing in the sky. A long pale finger , crept silently , upward to ward, the senitn. men anotner ana another, until. Its weird beauty thrill ing the heart, there flamed . in the northern heavens the. mysterious lum inous arch of the magnetic pole, the first aurora borealls of the autumn and EL V On one side the extension is divided into suitable sections, each section controlled by a brake operated by means of a lever placed opposite the entrance of the chute. By operating the lever the lower end of the exten sion is pulled across the surface of the chute toward the opposite side. When the barrel has been started on Its jour ney down the chute it naturally gains momentum, but by application of the brake of the first section its speed is diminished, or it can be stopped en tirely. As it passes through eacn sec tion the necessary brake Is applied, so that it can be brought gradually to a standstill at the bottom. Charles W. Weld, of Southbridge, Mass., is the patentee. ADDaratus for Firemen. Few persons, except the small boy who is going to' be one when he gets old enough, realize the, many dangers firemen face every day of their lives, but statistics prove that only a very small number die a natural death a falling wall or other part of a bum mg building generally carrying death to some brave fire fighter after he has spent the greater part of his life on STJFJUJZS FRESH AIR. duty. Just think, how often a fire man Is called upon to enter a build ing full of dense smoke, to rescue some person who has already been overcome, and the wonder Is that he is not supplied with some protection for his own life. There does not seem to- be any reason why he should not for Instance, wear an apparatus like the one shown In the illustration. He could then with absolute safety to himself enter any burning building, with an added chance, of saving any lives that might be endangered. The upper portion is made In the form of a hoed or mask of air-tight and fire proof fabric, to be placed over the head of the wearer, with glass clos ures for openings for the eyes. There is also a dtp opposite the month, which closes against air from without but opens fer the discharge of exhaled air which has been breathed. Reservoirs which contain compressed air or oxy. sen for sustaining life are attached to. the back of the wearer by straps, and connected by a tube to the back of the hood, with valves for regulating the supply. The compressed air can thus be readily supplied from the res ervoirs to the interior of the hood, to be breathed by the wearer. After en- tering a building filled with smoke fireman using this apparatus could re main for some time, while his hands and arms would be free. Charles E. Chapin, of Berkeley, Cal., is the patentee. The fingers of fleeting light contin ually changed their position and form, but so mysteriously that the eye could not follow. They broadened and deep ened, narrowed and glowed, faded un til almost invisible, appeared again, died down into the evanescent cloud at the horizon, stretched upward once more, one ray going almost to the pole star, another piercing the cup of the dipper hovering, shimmering, all keeping close to, that source of mag netic power, the point to which swings the quivering needle of the compass.
