There is a general belief that the introduction of Silver or Gold in the cast ing of a hell assures for it a Superior tone but an expert in founding Bells says that such a belief is erroneous. says that the Host tone effect in Bell Metal is confined within very narrow limits for any so called Bell Metal hav ing More than 80 parts Copper to 20 parts tin is too soft to produce the Best Quality of tone while that having More tin than 23 parts in the j0o is much too Brittle. There Are Bells in Europe whose Clear tones were for Many years credited to Gold and Silver that were supposed to have been added to the Bell Metal. An analysis was made not Long ago of the Metal in one of these Bells and it failed to show any tract1 of Gold or Silver. The old German hell found ers used to make their bolls of so parts Copper to 20 parts tin. In the opinion of this expert the strongest and Best toned Bell is obtained from 70 parts Copper and 21 parts tin. After the Bell is drawn says the expert two sweeps Are made and adjusted to an Unright spindle in the Cen ter of an Iron Case or flask the flask having perforations All Over it. Over the surface of the flask is coated wet a layer of Loam of equal and suitable thickness and baked. Then another layer is coated on and baked and so of layer after layer until the proper shape Etc., Are secured. There Are two such Iron molding casts one lifting Over the other. The under one has the Loam coating on its outer Side which has the inner shape of the proposed Bell. The upper Iron molding Case or flask has the Loam on its inner surface forming the out Side shape of the Belt. This is let Down Over the under Mold and carefully adjusted equally All around leaving a space inside Between the two holds. The under flask is called the Core. Tho upper or outer one is called the Case. The space is filled up by the molten Bell Metal which when cooled is the Bell. When the Bell is taken out of the holds it is polished Aud then the hangings Tongue or clapperetc., fitted to the Bell and it receives a severe ringing test partly to ascertain its tone and resonant Quality and to observe its mechanical excellence and adjust ment. Then if it appears to be Good in All Points it is shipped to the purchaser the making and shipping of a Bell Usu ally require from 10 to 13 Days in the smaller sizes. The larger sizes.i.e., from 1,500 pounds and More time. A peal of thru or More Bells requires from 40 to 00 Days time while a chime of nine or More Bells re quires from three to six months. Any foundry can of course readily make and select nine or ten Bells in tune for a chime but tune is Oue thing tone is economist. Time saving that May not be productive of Good habits. Our Public school children Are beyond doubt taught nowadays much that interests Aud helps them All of which was unknown to their parents at the same age. And this instruction is Given in a manner to beguile the Little people into the Royal Road to learning so that it is a common occurrence to have a child burst into tears at the fear of missing a Day in school. must always be a they learning refinement with the rest of the desiccated knowl Edge offered As their pabulum in the very scientific algebra taught throughout new York slate and com piled by an instructor in the Normal school to save time the highest common divisor is spoken of As the a. C. D.," Aud the least common multiple is the a. C. what time is saved and Why and in t such teach ing inculcating the vulgarity later on in life which Speaks of photos and bikes and buses if net of pants and if this system of abbreviating every thing is taught in our schools we will simply have to stand the jeers of the re fined foreigners at our being in too great a hurry to make Money to even speak the language properly. As great As we Are our fault lies in this Rushing frantically Over everything. What the far seers Are trying to teach is taking of time for All the refined things of life and yet if this principle of chopping the language is taught at the very base of our life the Public school what can be expected of these children when they grow up. Philadelphia press. Ants and to Weir uses. During 12 months spent in Tho australian colonies in the years 1870 1, i had More opportunities than were pleas ant of studying the habits of ants. These insects As is Well known Are not Only a nuisance but an absolute hot com trips. They March in myriads and destroy everything in their Road. In Justice to the ants i am bound How Ever to admit that i have found them useful in More ways than one. For in stance i bought an opossum skin Rug from a native. I soon became painfully aware of the fact that it literally swarmed with fleas and other vermin. In vain did i exhaust my Stock of pop per. Even turpentine seemed to Havo no effect beyond increasing the reckless activity of these irritating settlers. At last in despair i threw my Rug Down on an ant Mil. In less than half an hour every Flea and objectionable parasite was eaten but the Rug was full of ants. I therefore Hung it on a Mimosa Bush and As soon As the ants found they were suspended they hastened to leave the ring and descended by the Bush is Best they could. Again i had killed a Snake in tas mania and wished to clean and bleach the Skeleton which i intended to have mounted As a necklace. I left the body near an ants nest. In a few hours there was not a vestige of flesh on the Bones. The Sun Scon did the rest. Gentleman s Magazine. The largest Book. Professor Max Muller of Oxford in a recent lecture called attention to the largest Book in the world the wonder Ful Kuth Daw. It consists of 720 parts in the shape of White Marble plates covered with inscriptions each plate built Over with a Temple of Brick. It is found near the old priest City of Mau Dalay in Burma Aud this Temple City of More than 700 pagodas virtually snakes up this monster Jashed All nations.

Maybe you think they won t go he would bawl holding up one of his Watt lies when purchasers were Back Ward. That s where you re Way off. Listen to this one and he would imitate the Licking of a watch with his Mouth so that the sound could he easily heard by those on the outer limits of the crowd around his Torch illuminated Carriage. Success and seniority gave him the title King of the fairs by which he was known until his retire men r. I often Bear no account chaps talk ing about How hard it is to get along in this world said Lowndes when to was Here. They make me weary. The world is his fingers As if the subject was too silly to talk about. When i was a Small boy playing marbles and shinny and Peg top i Lokeil about me and saw All hands breaking their necks trying to earn a , sweating worrying working like the Devil every one of pm. It was positively painful for me to watch pm. All Hough i was Only in knee breeches. 1 made up my mind right then that i bad a Heap too big a capacity for fun to Wear myself out working and i determined to make the world my Oyster. Well i be been nibbling on tin Oyster Ever since and Tho Only work Yon could Call work that i Ever did was four Days of Coal heaving Down in the Stoke Hole of a japanese Steamer on which i was a stowaway. How s that for a four Days work in 30 years Don t i look it " tick did lock it. To was a Perambo lating jeweler s Shep. Diamonds glittered All Over the sort of Dia. Mods he used to put into his Pandora envelopes. It was acknowledged that he looked prosperous All right. Now you la be astonished but the worst jays i Ever struck anywhere in the world Are the russians. I think i sold about five tons of Axle grease Corn Salve for a Ruble an ounce Box on one trip through Southern Russia. All the men in Russia have corns. They All Wear heavy cowhide boots the Ordinary folks i i suppose accounts for it. I Felt almost ashamed the Way those russian folks fell Over each other to buy my Ordinary Axle grease of com Merce for their corns and the worst of it was that in the larger towns where i staid for three or four clays the yaps that had bought the stuff on the first Day of my arrival came to me before i left Aud told to gratefully that the Greaso had entirely cured their corns. Why i was regarded As a Public Bene Factor throughout the whole russian Empire. I found Tho French pretty easy ones too especially in Tho smaller towns. The first time i hit France i was sell ing West Indian perfumed Beans. They were the Ordinary Ami rican Beans that they Don t know How to Cook in bos ton despite All this talk of Boston As the town of Beans. I dyed the Beans Blue and soaked pm Over night in co Logne. I used a mexican Vaquero s make up on this trip and sold the Beans a dozen for a franc with a Long spell bind about the perfume lasting for 1,000 years and so on. It was like finding Money this bean fake in France. All of the South americans from Panama to Patagonia Are pretty easy to Gold Brick. All Over South America i sold thousands of Gallons of whitening tonic to make the half Breeds White. I made it of nights As i went along out of any old thing that was t harmful. Dandelion roots wild Cherry bark and such stuff. The governments got after me finally fir it though and that s the reason the half Breeds of South America Aie still Reddish in color. Their governments would t let pm buy enough of my whitening stuff you see. The mexicans buy anything. Yon May not believe it but i sold thou Sands of dollars Worth of common bar soap for removing grease spots on one trip Down there notwithstanding the fact that worn by the people who bought the soap were As much on the g string order As the Law of the land would permit. I sold pm safety razors that Cost me a Quarter each wholesale for $3, who h was about As Low Down As Ever i played it As any Man who Ever used a safely razor will admit. I would have made a million out of the natives of the Fiji islands if the jealous White residents Down there had not choked me off. As it was i cleaned up a Good bit of my icy on the scheme. I traded off Blue spectacles with the i Jis for cochineal. Cochineal at that time was about Worth its weight in Silver. The Fiji went crazy Over my Stock of goggles and i had several of the Island ers gathering cochineal for me until the consuls hunted me out. I was Cookin up a scheme to sell the Kaffir some stuff to straighten their Kinky Wool and make it look like the White Man s hair but the White people Down there would t stand it although there was millions in Cor.

One of the most curious and inexplicable cases known i i Medicine and sur Gery says the Chicago times Herald is that of Peter Munker the keeper of a grocery store at. 405 West Stroot. is More than years of no Aud is the possessor of a magnificent Phy Sique. Up to six months ago he had Becu Cue of the Healthiest of men. Pie was vigorous and enjoyed athletic sports. There was none More robust looking. was up mornings by Tho break of Day and bad an appetite at breakfast time that would Havo Dono credit to an army undo Driver. Along in february however Hobo Gau to Droop. His spirits fell. To did not laugh As was his wont. His appetite was a dismal failure. The Only thing that to seemed to enjoy was his pipe of tobacco and his rocking chair. These were his constant companions. To could not sleep. His friends advised the fam ily to Call in a doctor. To protested. Along about the 1st of March a swell ing having the appearance of a Carbuncle came on his right hand at its juncture Anteriorly with the Arm just Over Tho radial artery. It seemed As if it might be Erysipelas so or. J. W. Wild a physician living at Milwaukee Aud Chicago avenues thought. At All events the sore was treated As such. Weeks went along and the patient grew worse instead of better. Poultices were applied hut they acted As irritants. Munker was finally compelled to go to his bed. There he Lay in a Semi somnolent state for Days. Medicines did not revive him nor lotions allay Tho throbbing pain caused by the gradually growing sore on his Arm. It eventually grew Darker and harder and More sensitive. The Man grow More nervous until he was almost on the verge of delirium. More medical Talent was consulted. The swelling did not show signs of ripening. It was agreed to apply the Lance and this was done. The diseased part was then of the size of a Walnut almost As hard and just As Black. The Gristle was penetrated Aud in the synovial sack was found More than two ounces of dark molasses like looking fluid. It had a sickening smell that penetrated the entire House. Upon examination it was discovered to be Al most As poisonous As that found at the Bottom of a much used tobacco pipe. The wound was thoroughly drained and antiseptics applied. The blackish look ing fluid was preserved and tested. But few traces of bipod matter were discovered but the nicotine in All of its deadly effects was plainly apparent. Fifteen drops Given to a cat resulted in the Cut s death. Within 24 hours or. Munker began to improve. A week afterwards to was about his business. has now regained his former vigor but he despises to Bacco in All its forms. cannot Bear to smell its fumes. A pipe is Moro Nau seating than Asafoetida.

Still to Sells the Weed but in doing so he gives a word of warn ing to each of his purchasers. had been using it incessantly for More than 30 years in All its various forms. There is a great diversity of opinion among physicians As to the genuineness of the fluid taken from the sack. Some contend that it must have passed through the heart in order to have found Lodgment Over the radial artery and that of course a drop or so of Nic Otino would paralyse that Organ and produce instant death. But or. Man Ker his friends and his doctors declare that it is nicotine. If it in to then what is it " they ask. Sheridan s first ride. Ivolu Gilpin performance which showed Young i lii m Pluck. The following Story was told by the Rev. J. T. Headley historian Aud biographer of Many of the heroes of the War in regard to a boyhood experience of general Sheridan at five years of age he was playing near his Home when some lads came Alo in and amused themselves with the wide awake boy. A horse was feeding in an adjacent lot. Phil would you like a ride they Laid to him. Yes. Give me in a few moments the boy was on the animal s Back. The sudden and unceremonious mounting of the Young rider startled the Steed Aud away he Rau. Whoa whoa shouted the lads but in vain. Over the Fence the animal sprang and once on the Highway it was a John Gilpin performance. Phil Clung to the mane while the sobered authors of Tho race turned Pale with apprehension of a tragic end to it expecting to Sec him dashed to the Earth and killed. But of sight vanished both Steed and rider and Miles soon intervened be tween the two parties. Suddenly the horse turned into Tho shed of a tavern where its owner had frequently stopped in his travels. Men came out and recognizing the horse questioned the boy. One of the curious company after securing the foaming animal which had neither Saddle nor bridle inquired of the a terrified Phil who taught you to ride nobody answered the boy. Did no one teach you How to sit on horse asked another. Of yes. Bill Seymour told to to hold on with my Knees and i was t you frightened nary a lit. I wanted to go farther but the horse would t Ain t you sore Kinder but i la be better tomorrow and then i la ride Back that boy said the questioner has Pluck enough to be an Indian the owner of the nag turned up not Long afterwards in search of his property. said that the animal was vicious Aud had thrown More than Ono experienced horseman. A euphonious Murry Uff judge. Judge Reuben s. Saffold of Georgia has made u tremendous reputation As a marrying judge and the coloured people flock to him in droves says the Jack sen miss Clarion Ledger to have the knot tied. His popularity is due in part to the Graceful flourishes used in the marriage service. Here is the final flour ish in his amplified form of the service by the authority vested in me As an officer of the state of Georgia which is sometimes called the Empire state of the South by the Fields of Cotton that lie spread abroad in snowy whiteness around us by the howl of the Coon dog and the Gourd Vine whose clinging tendrils will Shade the Entrance to your Humble dwelling place by the red and luscious heart of the Watermelon whose sweetness fills the heart with Joy by heaven and Earth in the presence of the witnesses i pronounce you Man and exercise foe baby. A physician s views on this very important question. Influence of repressed activity on i growth and development of in fun is. This authority declares positively for Freedom of movement. Infantile athletics was the subject of a paper read at a Nice Ting of the Sec tion on paediatrics of Tho new York Academy of Mudio Iuey by or. Henry Ling Taylor. When Ono considers Tho important physiological effects of muscular activity said or. Taylor it is apparent that the human organism is imperfectly adapted to a sluggish or sedentary existence. Medical practice at least in the cities is largely made up of disorders which Are distinctly traceable to the neglect of proper exercise. Primi Tive Man being obliged to Hunt and fight in order to exist was of necessity athletic and now that the struggle has in a measure been shifted from brawn to brain men still find it advantageous to train their Muscles in sports and games. When the important relation of muscular activity to nutrition respiration circulation and elimination is re called this wholesome instinct easily finds its vindication. Every muscular mass is in an important sense a supplementary heart and a supplementary kidney. The lungs Are never thoroughly ventilated except through vigorous exercise. Moreover Tho nervous and muscular elements Are so intimately related As to form practically but one system. Education and Progress come through motor and sensory experience. That is largely through muscular activity. Growth itself is influenced by exer Cise or. I. Beyer of the United slates naval Academy has shown that not Only do those cadets who take systematic i gymnastic training largely exceed those who do not in average gain in weight lung capacity and strength hut that their average gain in height during the four years is greater by Over an Inch. The cadets Range in age from i to 21 years and it is probable that appropriate exercise would Hugo similar if not greater effect in children. It is even More True of the infant than of the adult that Tho kind and de Gree of habitual muscular activity will largely determine the Structure of the body and Tho tone of the mind and Char Acter. It is More Truo because Tho in Fant is More incomplete and More Plas tic. Tho Newborn babe is As it were but half made. Its organs Are Imma Ture its activities restricted and they will never attain full and harmonious development except under the stimulus of use. It is not without significance that cd Reiso is begun five months or More before birth and that the infant appears upon the scene with a kick and a cry. Though among the most helpless of nature s children the infant comes with considerable training and some remarkable muscular endowments As for instance the Well known ability to sup port itself by grasping a horizontal Rod. In waking hours the Small limbs prac Tice constant and vigorous movements superficially aimed but important in producing tissue changes fundamental to nutrition As Well Asiu furnishing sensory Aud motor experience necessary to mental and bodily growth develop ment and Power. At 5 months of ago the baby finds its hands and begins to reach out for Aud hold objects at 6 or 0 months it creeps at 12 or 1-1 it walks and so progresses from simple to Complex purposive mov Mouts and to such adjust i meets As put it in More comfortable and intimate relation with its surroundings. Since the infant has such ample endowments and spontaneous impulses to wholesome activity our first Aud most important care must to to avoid undue interference or repression. It is interest ing to observe what pains some uncivilized mothers take that the wrappings and appliances needful to protect the baby shall not prevent Freedom of move ment. In describing Indian infancy and the use of the portable Cradle mrs. Fletcher says it is a mistaken notion that Tho child is kept up All the time. Every Day the baby is bathed and placed on a Robe or Blanket to kick and Crow to its heart s Content but when the family cares Call the Mother away he is put into the Cradle with his arms free to play with the Many Bright beads that hang from Tho Hook which encircles the head of this Little portable bed what a refreshing contrast to Tho insipid experiences of our Over draped Over coddled youngsters still rough exercises Are not required for civilized babies. They will attend to their own gymnastics if not prevented. It is Evi Dent that the movements of the trunk and limbs should not he. Impeded with wrappings. Baby s activity should have free play. At the Start we Are confronted with the conventional belly band if tightly adjusted it must exert injurious pressure if too loosely adjusted it gets displaced and Rolls into a string. When adjusted with a proper degree of Sun guess it May be innocuous but do its benefits outweigh its Dis advantages Tho clothing be Loose Aud my pc fitting in successive layers so that All can be put on at once. " when it comes to artificial exercises for the baby there Are few prevalent among us that seem calculated to help him. Monotonous jarring shaking and trotting Are undesirable if not harmful when the idea is once grasped that a Good Hearty cry is an admirable Chest expander there is less temptation to this form of parental indulgence for it will usually be found that the baby is trotted for Tho Sake of the Trotter rather than for its own. Peevish Ness is of course undesirable. If due to indigestion or other physical ailments the baby should be treated if complicated by overindulgence the treatment should to tempered with discipline which should not Stop with the chances for Success in Large cities. In solving problems of Young men Edward w. Bok i the ladies Homo journal replying to an inquirer con tends that opportunities for promotion in business Are More numerous in Largo cities than in smaller communities but they Are not better. Thero Are More chances in the larger cities but likewise there Are More applicants for the chances. Salaries May be higher in the centers but so too is Tho Cost of living. Things always equalize them selves. To my Way of thinking a mod Erate business Success in a Small Community Means More to a Man in Point of living and absolute satisfaction than a greater Success in a larger catch Fisli with wheels. A curious plan for catching fish is used on the Columbia River. A number of wheels Are set up in the Middle of the Stream which As they turn round catch up the fish and cast them into troughs by the River Banks. The Salmon Are then tinned and sent All Over the world. As much As five tons Weigert of fish a Day has thus been taken. Notice. On december 20,1896,1 closed out my entire Stock of vehicles.
