Clever Mechanical Devices That Will
It has long been recognized by ex
ports in hypnotism that the hypnotic
sleep is Induced by the subject him
self. All that the operator can do is
to porsuade the patient that he has
ability to produce the sleep. Any me
chanical device that will cause the be
lief that sleep is inevitably approach
ing will do as well, and a number of
theso aro now in use by physicians
who resort to hypnotic suggestion In
the treatment of nervous affections.
Some of them are described in the
Technical World Magazine by John
Elfreth Watklns. We read:
"One of the newest of these me
chanical aids employed by the hyp-

notist is the 'hypnotic ball. It might
be mistaken for the half hour of an
hour-glass mounted upon a short
handlo of ebony. It Is, In fact, a glass
ball, half-filled with sand, and having
a bottle-mouth, into which the wooden
handle fits snugly. Stuck Into the In
terior extremity of this handle the
end protruding inside the ball Is a pin,
whose head extends to the center of
the transparent globe. The sand Is
dyed a bright Indigo blue, as Is the
globular head of the pin. Thus we
have a little ball the plnhead with
in a larger transparent one, and be
tween the two, a bright colored pow
der. "The subject concentrates his eyes
upon the plnhead, while the ball, held
at about the height of his head, is re
volved by the operator with both a
circular and rotary motion within a
foot of the subject's eyes. The ro
tary manipulations cause the sand to
fall like a cascade behind the pln
head. "Thus there are three movements

suggestion that the machine will

the success of all mechanical aids.
Another device, the "vibrating cor
onet" of Dr. Gallic, consists or three
metal bands which encircle the head
and support branches that vibrate
against the eyelids. Some hypnotists,
we are told, employ a large drawing
of a human eye, on a card, while oth
ers use a combination of magnets, re
lying on the common Idea that mag
netism Is connected in some way with
the hypnotic sleep. It may often bo
necessary to employ makeshifts In
case none of these devices is-at hand.
Says Mr. Watklns:
"A candle placed behind an ordi
nary brown or colored bottle is some
times used in lieu of a hypnotic lamp.
The candle flame focuses Itself at a
spot on the side of the bottlo nearest

suggestion that sleep will result

falls asleep when there is no longer a
vestige of light In the room."

A little house we've got, on a flower
bowered lot, in a hustling, breezy busy
little city; It's big enough for two, for
our wants are very few, there's only
Just myself and little Kitty.
A simple little house like -this Is
very much like going back to first
principles, but it furnishes accommo
dation for two just as well as a more
elaborate affair. We all have acquaint
ances, especially among our older
friends, who commenced life as simply
as this and who are now enjoying
the accumulations resulting from fru
gality and good management.
If a yonng couple forms the habit
of paying rent they are very likely to
pay rent as long as they live. We
often hear the remark that it Is
cheaper to pay rent than to own your
property. There never was a more
foolish or misleading statement. The
man who lives in a rented house sel
dom gets ahead financially. This
holds good whether he is working on
salary or is conducting a business on
his own account. It would be difficult
tof say why, but It probably is because
ih the majority of cases a renter fails
to give attention to the advancing
value of real estate.
I knew a man, a clerk In a lubricat
ing oil factory, who rented a new
house on a pleasant street about 20
years ago. At first he paid $20 per
month, but In seven or eight years'
time the rent was raised to $25. He
Is still living in the same house and is
now paying $35 per month. The
house has not improved with age, and
he is continually looking about to bet
ter his condition. bu.t can find no other
property that suits him so well or that
he can rent at a cheaper rate in pro
portion to the advantages 'he now h&s.
He has paid enough rent to buy the
house, to pay all street Improvements,
city taxes, insurance and repairs. He
tells me he was offered the property
years ago for $2,500, which he thought
was too much money. The lot Itself
Is worth more than that to-day. This
Is one instance in a great many sim
ilar ones that have come to my notice.
It is not always that a neighborhood
improves so rapidly and substantially,
but generally speaking all property in
American towns advances In value.
There Is another ery great advan
tage in owning a home, and that is
the comfortable feeling you have (if !
being a landed proprietor end the
fact that you are not obliged to have
your rent money ready promptly when
the month comes round. You can
plant a tree or a shrub or some flower
bulbs without the permission of the
landlord, you can make alterations In
the bouse when it suits your conven
ience, tuiu ii iiiu uuute or neiguuor
hood Is not to your liking, you can
rent It and borrow the money to build
another, and the rent from the old
one will heln pay for the new.

A little house like this may be
made very attractive by making a nice
lawn and planting a few trees and
flowers. The lawn Is the most essen
tial and the most difficult undertaking
on the average town lot. The ground
often is not very good, it is mixed
with cellar earth and rubbish that is
not well calculated for a good seed
bed for grass. It is easy to put the
ground in proper shape, however, if
the Job is started from the bottom. I
The ground must be plowed deep, and
thoroughly worked to get the objec
tionable grass roots out of it. The
condition of the soil will determine
whether to seed the first year or the
second year. If there is no humus in
the soil it will pay to cover it thick
with coarse manure and plow it under.
This again leads to complications in
the moisture problem, but If you have
a hose attachment you can easily keep
the ground moist. The top two or
three Inches of earth must be repeat
edly worked with a disc harrow, or
some such Implement, every other day
for a week or two to kill the weeds
as they sprout, then If the top Is well
mixed with a good commercial fer
tilizer the grass seed may be sown
add you have a lawn that will last
as long as you want it, a lawn that
will be green when others are -parched
with sun, a lawn that will look velvety
and add ten or 20 per cent to the
value of the property.
This Is a secret that not many
householders understand. It is not
the house itself that makes the home
desirable. I have seen cheap little
houses made so attractive that
strangers passing would stop to ad
A young man can build a house like
this for seven or eight hundred dollars,
and the money that he would natural
ly pay out for rent will pay for it in
a few years time. He can grow fruit
trees and have fruit enough for homo
use and some to sell without going to
much expense or spending a great
deal of time In the garden. An hour

or two at night for a few weeks early
in the season will accomplish a good
deal if the work is intelligently laid
out. In building a house like this
don't forget the outside embellish
ments. The lawn and the garden will
be the making of the property. At the
same time you will be setting a good
example that Is almost sure to benefit
Another very Important Item Is the
painting. A little house sometimes is
conspicuous just because it is small
and more attention is paid to it than
other houses in the neighborhood, es
pecially If It Is nicely painted and
neatly kept Always choose quiet
colors for a small house; never at
tempt to make It showy. A drab with
white trimmings always looks well.
You may deviate from this without
serious injury, possibly, but you can

trimmings for a small house, espe

trees and screened with vines.
Tree That Really Weeps.
Among th'e historical curiosities to
be seen at Chatsworth House, Eng
land, the residence of the Duke of
Devonshire, is a willow tree that
weeps, very often to the personal dis
comfort of those beneath it
To the casual observer It appears
Just an ordinary willow, but on closer
inspection it is seen to be artfully
artificial. It is made from a metal
to closely resemble a living tree, and
each of Its branches Is co'eredwlth
innumerable holes. In fact, the whole
tree is a monster syringe, being con
nected to a water main near by.
The key for turning on and off is
close at hand, and many a visiting
party has been enticed beneath its
branches by practical jokers.
