MACHINE TO BLOW GLASS.
Oaa ef the Moat Mar veto CootrlT
ancee la the World of Indaatrjr.
Glass has at last been successfully
blown by machinery and, as has gen
erally been the case when mechanical
means supersede hand methods, all
feats of hand blowing have been out
done. The secret of the remarkable Inven
tion Is still hidden, but specimens of
tie work done have been shown. The
cylinders are of Immense else, the larg
est being thirty Inches In diameter and
Ltneteen feet long.
The new machine Is the invention of
John A. Lubbers, a glassfelower of Al
legheny, Pa. It has been built at the
Alexandria, IndH branch of the Ameri
can Window Glass Company's plant.
The process of blowing window glass
Is Mmple In theory, but difficult In
practice. On the end of a long tube
a mass of molten glass Is collected.
This Is then heated In a furnace and
gradually distended by blowing Into a
larj,, tube with straight sldea.
To accomplish this without the pecu
liar twisting and manipulation employ
ed by the human glassblower has pus
clcd many clever inventors, and the
Lubbers machine was made successful
only after a great many experiments.
Lubbers has Invented several labor
saving device and this latest triumph
la likely to make htm many times a
millionaire when It la generally In
stalled. Skilled mechanics from the Westing
house factories In Pittsburg have been
working behind barred gates and high
walls for months in the erection and
Installation of the machines, which no
man other than old and skilled em
ployes of the company was allowed to
Patents have not yet been granted
on certain parts of the machines and
therefore the secrecy.
So confident Is the company of the
merits of the machine that It is pre
paring to spend thousands of dollars
In its installation in all of the forty
one plants controlled by it in various
parts of the country.
It is expected that the device will
do away with hand blowers altogether.
So confident are the men that this will
be the case that many are getting out
of the business. The better class of
blowers earn from $450 to $000 a
month. New York World.
ART OF BATTINQ THE BALL.
Breanahan, the Olaata' Beat Bitter,
Give Points on the Game.
Confidence and good eye are the prin
cipal things a baseball player must
possess If he wishes to become a good
batter, together with the ability to
Judge from the location of the oppos
ing fielders where they expect the man
at the bat to hit the balL The man
who stands close to the piste while at
the bat and bears in mind that every
pitcher, no matter who he Is or what
his reputation may be, must put the
ball over the rubber, can, with prac
tice, become a good and, I may say, a
dangerous hitter, even If he has not
the natural ability of some of the
great batter of the past and present,
says Roger Bresnahan In the Illus
trated Sporting News.
una very oaa fault many young
players have la the hsblt of pulling
away from the plate, as It Is called,
when a ball looks as though It might
possibly hit the batter. How many
times have you seen a jnan step back
from a curved ball which a second
after "cut the plate" and was called a
strike, much to his dlscomforture?
The remedy for this, I think, Is a sim
ple one, which can be mastered by
any young man possessing the neces
sary confidence: It is simply to step
forward and meet the ball before It
crosses the plate. In this way the ball
Is always In front of the batter, and he
Is, so to speak, on top of It before It
Many pitchers hsve a puzzling drop
ball which looks easy and fades away
from the bat when you strike at It.
On the other hand, many of the best
boxmen are now using a rise ball
pltbced with a side arm motion. A
batter has a much better chance to kill
either of these balls by stepping Into
them to the limit of the batter's box
as they approach the plate. The same
.hing applies to balls either on the in
side or the outside of the plate.
It Is much easier to hit the ball by
running In on It. By meeting the ball
early it can be sent In the direction
of the left field. Thf, old theory that
If you wish to strike a ball toward the
right field you must strike at it after
it has crossed the plate is pretty well
exploded. By stepping In and meeting
the ball In front of you It Is just as
easy, if not easier, to drive It toward
right field as It Is to pull It Into left

The fame of Washington is so im
meuse aiui the HHular tvnctition of his
character so exalted, that some skeptical
and fault-timling critics are disposed to
question the universal estimate, and es
pecially in the matter of his ability as a
soldier and military commander. How
ever much we may wish it otherwise.
there is in human nature a mean spirit
of envy and detraction which instinctive
ly feels the honors bestowed upon a great
man to be an indirect reflection and re
buke to its own littleness and baseness.
This spirit cropped out conspicuously in
the case of Columbus, in the efforts to
belittle his great exploit ami to blacken
his character. 1 do not say that criti
cisms upon Washington's generalship all
proceed from base motives, but they
doubtless do mostly come from the spirit
and Innate tendency which I have Indi
cated. This unworthy spirit is as old as
history, as old as humanity. It showed
itself in a memorable fashion when the
old Athenians wrote their sentence of
banishment agaiust Aristides because
they were tired of hearing him called
Great soldiers are to be judged not
alone by success, by battles fought and
victories won though this, of course, is
the great popular test but by. all the cir
cumstances and difficulties in which they
are placed. There ure great commanders
in history who have won fame by avoid
ing battles, like the Human Fabius, and
even by great retreats like Xenophon
with his ten thousand Greeks, if Wash
ington is to be compared, to his disad
vantage, with Napoleon, then the popu
lar question is, would Napoleon, under
the same circumstances, have done uuy
better? It is enough for any command
er that he tills the great measure of his
requirement. This, of course, is not say
ing that Washington would have filled
the place of Napoleon in the vastly differ
ent field and circumstances in which that
great soldier won his fame. Nor should
It be forgotten, .all the while, that ulti
mately Washington succeeded and found
ed a nation, while Napoleon failed and
lost an empire.
V. ashitiKton'e Difficult Tat It.
The diraculties which encountered
Washington when he took up his great
trust as commander-in-chief of the con
tinental army were most complicated
and immense. The theater of the strug
gle was a vast one, geographically,
stretching along the Atlantic coast from
Massachusetts to South Carolina, while
the whole population was only three mill-
Ions not very much greater than that
of the State of Michigan, and not so
great into a million as that of Illinois.
Out of this small, scattering and peace
ful population an array was to be raised.

GEORGE WASHINGTON IP TO DATE.
That cherry tree episode with a
not to be a struggle betweeu government
and government, between one nation and
another, it was a rebellion, and there
was really no central authority, no arms
or warlike stores, no navy, no treasury
or finani-ial system or responsibility. It
was only a brave a nod patriotic people,
small la numbers, without discipline or
military experience, without arms and
without money, rushing thus hare-handed
into a conflict with the mother country,
their own government: a powerful nation,
which had recently been raised by the
genius of the elder Pitt to the front rank
among the great warlike nations of the
world a nation whose military posts and
possessions already dotted the globe,
whose victorious navies covered every
ocean and sea, whose morning drum Wat,
as Webster said, was heard round the
world. It was against such a power as
this that this handful of patriots had
thrown down the gage of rebellion and
Washington is known in history as a
providential man; that is, n man raised
up by l'mvidenea to fill a great place
and perforin a great mission. However
this may be. he certainly had great part:
aud great and peculiar fitness for the
most difficult and trying place which he
filled in history. He had had experi
ence in the previous Indian and French
wars, and had proven himself a wise,
competent and heroic officer. He had
great personal advantages for command.
He was of fine physique aud imposing
presence, a splendid horr man, carrying
with him ever the port and air of au

Hardly a better instance does history
afford of patience under provocation, of
dogged determination under difficulties, of
uucomitienible will and courage, holding
on so long and coming out triumphant at
last over such mighty opposition. These
great qualities, as we have already seen,
belonged to. the man more than to the
soldier. It was indeed the great

great patriotic heart, with the wise head,
and the lofty, mishakcu soul, that
brought us through that long and tremen
dous struggle and gave us our glorious
plat e and opportunity among the nations.

could have done it. (Ireene, among the

But in looking over the whole field and
record, in the light of all the facts and
history, it will be seen that Washington
made no military mistakes, that he im
proved all his opportunities, that his
generalship will stand the test of criti
cism. He struck whenever he had the
chance, his plans were good, and when
compelled, his retreats were masterly.
