6 WICK. eievelauil Inventor* Devic^ for ProdtKS iug More LJglit From Oil Lamps. William Jiaksoii, engineer of thai lake s»bore geueral office buiHiug -a Cleveland, is the inventor of a lamp wick which bi Is fair revolutionize tbe kerosene lamp trade ir tne iiluini native result.- he obtains through its use are unv criterion. For more than a year be has been at i H?ork on some sort of a device to enable the ordinary lamp to afford more light. than it usually does. This be believes be has succeeded in finding. Tbat bis i view is shared ly a number of other' people is evidenced by the fact that he has been approached by a number ol! moneyed men who are anxious to pur-1 chase the patent be has applied for or to secure an interest in th manufacture of the device. Mr. Jackson's wick 1- nothing mere or less than the ordinary one in use on the burning end of which is attached a piece of wire gauze perhaps one inch in length. A quarter if an inch of the gauze is lapped around the wick, and iu the remaining portion is placed a thiu layer of asbestus, leaving a slight air chamber between the end of the wick and the asbestos tilling. The principle on which the wick acts is that gas is generated from the kero sene after the wick is heated slightly. Then a beautifully clear white flame is produced which is equal in illuminat ing power to the average six foot gas jet and is much whiter. The flame is absolutely smokeless, as perfect com bustion is assured. The particular feature of the wick is that it never needs trimming and is practically indestructible. Ordinary kerosene is burned in the lamps, and wick.- for any style of lamp may be fit ted with it. It is the intention of Mr. Jackson and his partners to place the wick in the market before the 1st of February, and a company is being formed to manufac ture them. A location for a factory has already been secured. The wick will probably be used in all the lamps on the Lake Shore train: which are not equipped with Pintscb .—Cleveland Plain Dealer.,, GOOD HABIT SOCIETY. It Originated In School and WM Inspired by a Peddler. Th newly formed Good Habit society originated in a public school in New York, and a banana peddler happened to furnish the inspiration for it. Ht was passing the school when tlie chil dren set upon him, appropriated his wares and tore his clotliers. This sug gested to the more civilized of the pu pils the desirableness of a reform in manners. The idea spread, and the Good Habit society was the result. Soon out biders began to hear of it. and such peo pie as Stephen Merritt and P»ob«rt Mc Intyre became greatly interested in the movement. Thus the little school club became a world's society, with branches in hundreds of schools, missions and children's organizations. The pledge is, "To treat every one With kindness thereabout, including dumb animals to use no bad language neither to lie nor steal to abstain 1mm the use of alcohol as a beverage and from tobacco in any form to abstain from gambling in any form, and to favor ar bitration. The badge is a red, white or blue rib bon, and any one who will visit the public playground at Seventh avenue and Thirty-seventh street in New York will And all the attendants wearing it There are no dues. Tbat such a society is needed in the schools is shown by the fact that foreign born children were deterred from at tending school by the rudo treatment they received at the handii of the native born pupils.—New York Tribune. The Balldog a uroa uog No member of the canine family has been more persistently maligned than the bulldog. Writers who have no in timate knowledge of the dog and his at tributes have described him as stupidly ferocious, and illustrators have pictured him as a sort of semiwild beast, till the general public has come to look upon him as dangerous. "Give a dog a bad name," is an old saw, and perhaps a true one, but when it i» applied to the bulldog it is mani festly unjust. Writers, too, have fallen into grave error in claiming that the bulldog is deficient not only in affec tion, but in intelligence. Stonehenge, who is considered one of the greatest of canine scientists, claims that the bulldog's brain is relativelv larger than that of the spaniel, which dog is generally considered to be the most intelligent of the canine race, while the bulldog's affection is never to be doubted.—Outing.
