Pennsylvania Woman Designs Band
to Fit Around Ankle With Hook
Fastened to Button.
Any person who ban ever had an
overshoe come off while crushing a
muddy street will appreciate th<« fast
ener device designed by a Pennsylva
nia woman to prevent this annoying
accident. An elastic band fastens
around the ankle and this supports a
suspender like arrangement at the heel
of the overshoe. Attached to one side
of the gumshoe Is another elastic fup
porter, with a hook which engages a
button on a button shoe, or a hook on
a laco shoe. It takes only a tew sec
onds to fasten the overshoe on with
these devices, and It Is worth the
trouble. After a rubber has once come
off In the mud, and it usually does
this when jou are going somewhere
you want to look your best, there is
not much use In putting it on ag tin.
The attachments are made so that
they can be removed from the over
shoe when not needed and quickly ; t
on again.
Sir George Darwin, Noted English Sci
entist, Delivers Interesting
Address on Tide*.
Sir George Darwin, the noted scien
tist, who was the guest of the Authors'
club In London recently, delivered an
interesting address on his theory ot
the tides. Everybody knows that the
tides are due to the moon's attraction
In the tidal motion the movement of
the water causes friction and a conse
quent slowing down of the motion of
rotation of the earth, as a brake would
do. The effect, though almost infin
itesimal, becomes appreciable In time,
although It lias not yet been meas
ured But It must exist, and Ulis slow
ing down being due principally to the
moon It must be accompanied by a re
action on it. with the result that the
moon will move further ami further
away from the earth, owing to the
yielding of the system The opinion of
many authorities is that the moon
was shot off from the earth at the por
tion now tilled by the Pacific ocean.
As It Is still moving further away and
the rate of rotation of the earth dim
inishing the time will come when tiie
length of the day and that ot the lu-
nar month will be the same, and the
earth and moon will again revolve as
a rigid holy When that occurs the
day will he 55 times as long as our
present day. But the sun also pro
duces tides and similar effects, though
on a smaller scale. So the year, too,
will be lengthened.

Made as Germless ss Sterilized Water
by Simple Process of Wash
ing Off Bacteria.
Professor Metchnlkoff has had so
much to say In recent years about the
enormous proportion of dlaeases that
are acquired by taking bacteria into
the system on raw fruit that a certain
class of people afflicted with the mod
ern mania which may be called germl
phobla will be interested In the find-
Inga of Dra. Fillasier and Sartor y, who
assert that a little common washing
will render the deadly exterior of all
fruits as gormless as sterilized water.
Those men are members of the
French Academy of Sciences, and be
coming interested in the charges
brought against raw fruit they recent
ly set about the experiments of a
simple character which proved the
complete efficacy of cold water as a
germ chaser. They placed a few
grapes In a little water and found from
120.000 to several million germs in a
cubic centimeter in tbo water
second washing produced a lew thou
sand of the Metchnlkoff terrors, and
at the end ol a fourth rinsing scarce
ly any germs could be found In the
water used.
The interesting part of this work
was that with each washing a con
stant decrease of germs was noted —
‘JO per cent being eliminated each
time the process was repeated, in ad
dition to demonstrating how simple it
Is to ward off all danger from germs
on fruit the Frenchman asserts that
not half the specimens which do find
a habitation on fruit are harmful.
Object of Recent Invention Is to Pro

This Invention relates to flying ma
chines of the heavier than air type,
and the object Is to provide a machine
of this class which has its propellers
so arranged that they not only drive
the machine but steer It also. By
such a construction the Inventor mini
mizes the necessity ot using movable

rudders heretofore used to control
the machine's course of travel. Bal
ancing Is accomplished by locating
the power plant directly below the
center of gravity of the supporting
planes, and by the manner in which
the planes are tilted with reference to
the line of travel. The improved aero
plane is shown in perspective In the

Professor, Who Accompanied Hls Wife
on Shopping Trip, Runs Up
Against Hard Problem.
One day a teacher of mathematics
went shopping with his wife. He
tagged along listlessly from counter
to counter until they came to the
dress-trimmings department, and there
be found something In his line. Said
bls wife to the saleswoman:
“How wide is that gold-spangled
black crepe?”
‘ Three eighths of a yard,” said the
"How’ much is it a yard?”
“Three dollars.”
“Well,” said the professor’s wife,
“how much of three-eighths-wlde ma
terial will it take to put four six-inch
Etrips around a two-and-tbree-quarter
yard Fkirt that is seven inches nar
rower at the knees than it is at the
bo’tom, and how much will it cost?”
At the first mention of those figures
the professor’s head began to reel, and
it reeled still more when his wife and
the girl got out pencils and paper and
began to do their sum. Presently his
wife said:
"Here, dear, you know all about
mathematics. Help us solve this prob
lem, won’t you?”
But the professor said: "Excuse me.
I feel faint. I must get a little fresh
air," and ignominiously fled.
His wife came homo with exactly
the right amount of material, and she
didn’t pay a cent too much. —New

Idea of Killing Two Birds With One

Two young women rode into Boston
from Newton on an Oak Square car
the other day. They were very chum

in a kind of “one for me and one for
you” style. It was just after Christ
mas, and it was natural that the con
versation should have much to do with
that day. It rattled on like this:
“Bessie has a diamond ring!” This
was said with the air of one imparting
a profound secret.
“She has?” expressing great sur
prise. (Insert chocolates here.)

expecting 1L”
