Y THE BABY INCUBATOR. Montreal Maternity Hospital Is Now Provided wltb line. The Montreal Maternity Hospital is sow ready to receive any babies who and themselves thrust upon their own resources without a perfectly fair chance. A really handsome Incubator of fine enameled brass and shining glass, now stands in one of the rooms on the second floor, and is a gift to the Institution. The unprepared baby is now a thing hoped for. The Incubator offers every encouragement to the occupant to take THIS BABY I2CCÜBA.TOB. a long breath and try again. No baby that is possessed of the smallest bump of gratitude can resist its dainty and ' accurate devices . for helping him to catch his breath. The doctors arid nurses at the Institution are warmly "Interested, and are looking forward to. an opportunity for testing the appara tus. As is well known, ttiousands of ba bies have been saved through the Incu bator, and it Is difficult in looking at what seems a very simple and pretty bit of hospital equipment, to realize how very important is Its place in the institution. It stands upon slender legs, as does the common incubator for "hatching" chickens, and its mechan ism Is almost as simple. It shines with cleanliness, every inch of the surface, both within and without, appearing to have been vigorously polished. In these details lies its main distinction from the other apparatus, and It Is only In these that the higher uses those of preserving human life are indicated. The Incubator proper is a cube of about two feet in dimensions. Double doors open to admit the baby, and then shut him In, his food being given to him through the slide. No draughts can blow upon him there Is a mechan ism within to regulate "all the winds that blow" to the proper temperature and quality. A tiny white mattress rests upon the floor space, upon a wire support, beneath which. In turn, is lo cated the heating and ventilating mechanism. Absolute simplicity Is the key note in the whole thing, as suits the baby, who hasn't had time to cultivate his tastes, and demand a spring bed and a fres coed celling. To the right Is the heat ing apparatus. Within is the hydro meter to indicate the temperature. "Body heat" Is the prescribed standard sometimes a degree above, never one below. To the left Is an appliance for ventilation by which the air Is filtered and moistened before being admitted to the Incubator chamber. And sur rounding the whole Is a whirle-gig ar rangement at the top supplementing rne worn or ventilation. SIZE OF THE SUN. Diagram Which Shows the Compara tive Insignificance of the Karth.

The dis tance from the sun to Jupiter Is 104, 000,000 miles, in which are many small stars or asteroids, some of which are not more than 100 miles in diameter. The atmosphere around Jupiter is so thick that we could not breathe It; In fact It is almost water, and this is due to the fact that Jupiter is five times further from the sun than the earth, and gets only one-twenty-fifth as much heat and light from the sun as wff do. If a man stood on Jupiter the sun would look no larger than an apple to his eyes. It would take a long time to travel all over Jupiter, for it.is 19.000 miles in diameter at its equator, and, being flattened at the poles, just like the earth', 18,400 miles in diameter ! from north to south. If the sun were In any way to cease to act as the center of the celestial system, Jupiter is heir apparent to the throne and would take his place. NEW REPLACING FROG, One Has Been Contrived and Tested to Satisfaction of Those Interested. A problem that railroad men have been trying for years to solve has at last succumbed to the American in ventive genius. A wonderful new car and locomotive replacing frog has been contrived and tested to the satisfac tion of those most interested. One of the most difficult feats and annoy ing trials of railroading heretofore has been the replacing of cars that have left the rails. With the old one tongued frog much toil and patience was required to perform this duty. With the new invention the matter is very simple. Two frogs are used now, the "male" and the "female," each weighing 100 pounds. The maximum height being at the ends of the frogs, making them wedge-shaped, they can be placed un der the wheels at the thin end so as to clear brake-hangers, etc. There Is no beveled surface and no side pressure to push them out of place or break the flanges of the wheels. The female frog Is placed between the rails and the tongue set to guide the wheels that are off inside. The tread, not the flange of the wheel, rides the male frog, which Is cone-shaped, and lo! with a little pressure the car goes home on the track. THE DARKY'S DELIGHT, g One 'Watermelon Raptnre Immortal iased by Photography. Talk about your hambon it am sweet; 'Possum it am very, very fine. But de watermiliion am de fruit fer me. The accompanying cut is from a "WATKRMILI-ION snapshot, photograph taken recently by Mr. Horace A. Groff, of Marietta. Mr. Groff came upon the negro sitting near a box car loaded with melons fresa from the South. The boy was too mucQ taken up with his melon to note the fact that he was having his picture taken. In fact, there was nothing of more importance on this earth, at that present moment, than to surround that melon. Its red, juicy interior flamed against the happy ebony features, the white ivories sank deep into the pulpy mass and the youngster's eyes rolled in that ecstasy which is only witnessed when a "cullud pusson" is in "water million" heaven. The gourmand may gaze at the goose of truffles, his mouth may water at the capon, but he can never reach that highest top-notch pinnacle which wa gained by the obscure little darky, whose features are sent down to pos tp-ity through the medium of the snap shot so luckily obtained.

Cfiioe more Mrs. Langtry, the "Jersey Lily," has come into public notion through matrimony. She Is now mar ried to Hugo Gerald de Bathe, son of u rich Englishman. Emelie Charlotte, MRS LAUGTRT. known from childhood as Lily Le Bre ton, was born at St. Helen's, in the isl and of Jersey, in 1833. She is said to claim that she was not born until 1S00, but as she was married in 1874 to Ed ward Langtry her claim can hardly be accepted. Her father was a dean of the Church of England. He was. however, comparatively poor, and his daughter's marriage to Mr. Langtry, who was well to do, was perfectly satisfactory to him. It was soon after her marriage that Mrs. Langtry's beauty firstt attracred comment. The Langtry s moved o town, and Mrs. Langtry became one of the first of the series of professional beauties. The Prince of Wales was in troduced to her and became a great ad mirer. Fashionable life proved too ex pensive for Mr. Langtry, and he disap peared from Loudon in 1SS1 after a financial smash. His wife refused to return to Jersey with him and went on the stage. Since that time Mrs. Langtry bas been more or less before the public. Her dramatic debut was made at the Haymarket Theater in 1881, but she did not adopt the stage regularly as a profession till the following year Af ter many legal delays and various un successful attempts, she obtaineü a divorce from her hsuband in May. 1807. from a California court. Ed ward Langtry is said to have 'dolized his wife until his death, which occur red in an insane asylum in England on Oct. 15 in the same year as the divorce. Mrs. 'Langtry has made several dra matic tours In the United States, from which she derived handsome profits. CLEVER TRICKS OF RAVENS. Some Think the Bird Must Possess the Power of Keasoning. Many stories are told of the clever ness of the raven,' a bird that really seems to have reasoning power. One of these stories tells how a raven by a skillful stratagem got a young hare for Its dinner. It had pounced upon a lit tle animal but the mother hare drove It away. Then the raven slowly retreated, en couraging the motlier to follow him. and even pretending that he was afraid of her. In thife fashion he led her a con siderable distance from the young one and then suddenly, before the hare had time to realize the meaning of the trick, he rose in the air, flew swiftly back, caught the young hare In bis beak and bore It away. A similar plan was adopted by some ravens that wished to steal food from a dog. They teased him till he grew so anry that he chased them from the spot, but the artful birds turned sharp ly around, easily reached the dish be fore him and carried off the choicer bits in triumph. As to the raven's power of speech, the following story, which is given on the authority of Capt. Brown, who vouches for its truth, will show how aptly It can talk: A gentleman while traveling tHrough a wood In the South of England was startled by hearing a shout of "Fair play, gentlemen; fair play!" uttered In loud tones. The cry being presently repeated, the traveler thought it must proceed froná someone in distress and at one began to search for him. He soon discovered two ravens fiercely at tacking a third. He was so struck wltb the appeal of the oppressed bird that he promptly rescued him. It turntd out that the victim -was a tame raven, belonging to a houee in the neighbor nood, and the cry that it had used so opportunely was one of many that it had been taught to utter. Hint from an Auctioneer. At a recent party a young lady began a song: "The autumn days have come, ten thousand leaves are falling." She began too high. "Ten thou ousand " she screamed, and then stopped. "Start her at five thousand!" cried an auction eer who was present. Largest Check.
