A piece of this material about a foot Long is carefully Cut and scraped. One in Ltd is usually Cut at the joint of the band too Rod. So that tie end is closed. By nature the re is hollow and the whole constriction forms a tute. The letters an Maie into a Roll and then step a a so into tin hollow Bamboo. Through the it pen end a pin is placed thus keeping the letters from falling out. In Many instances because gum was not available to paste Par on the tute upon which to place the address the soldiers Cut on the Bamboo j the name of the person to whom the a letter was Eastern daily i press. Com Paul a door plate. John g. Thomas of pm Lago is probably the Only Man in the Northwest who has Ever sold any merchandise to it Tom Paul Kruger president of the iut Republic. In conversation lie said a i owned a Glass door plate manufactory a few years ago. A year ago last july i god an order from him and forwarded it by mail to his address. It was about Liffee ii inches Long and six inches wide and on it. In Plain Gold letters was tin inscription a Paul Kruger. Staats i have no doubt that the plat is now doing duty on his front Dan it a. And that if tin government goes under it will in found among Trio Sentinel. Zinc has More than doubled in Price in a year these treacherous Long words. A Are you quite sure that your orthography is Aliso lately Correct a asked the old Friend. A i done to know a a us we re i mrs. Cum Rox. Apprehensively. A i Hope it la to. I done to see How i can find time to Start in now and study natural history a a Washington Star. Already an institution in recording the notable sex is and occurrences of the world Kinet scope or moving pictures Are iks Outing useful for scientific As Well As for amusement purposes. In hospitals particularly tie invention is finding application. A clares tin new York Sun. One Hospital in new York i now adapting a machine to record minutely the actions of patients in i leptin fits and similar affections and Many moving Pilot turns have ten taken showing the movement in walking of persons a filleted from Ksn of motor ataxia. Reproduced slowly on the screen doctors Are enabled to study tin symptoms More carefully in their laboratories. And the pictures taken in Vienna showing operations being performed Gay famous Surg on become valuable instructors to medical students. It is also i Hospital work that this i Venti in with the Miler my Oigt a attachment. Or Micro Kaneto scope. Is finding the greatest practical use. The movement of All kinds of Iuit a Rol gets when thus photographed make striking animated pictures and tin actions of healthy and it Lis As cd 4>rpuscles Are easily distinguish when thrown Ujioka tie a Creen Aud magnifi4l thousands of times. Bitch pictures of diseased blood take from time to time show the improvement or decline in the condition of patients. It Lias just ie4n found by one exp a raiment that a Ray photography now so valuable in Hospital May the won Der filly developed by the use of the biography camera As it is equally Isusi ble to take moving pictures with the Wjk net rating Light. He believes there is no function it it of tie human let Ody which May not be shown in action by such pictures Eren to the tel Atung of the heart and i1km1 circulation. Many of the animated pictures that Are exhibited now for their Bounty alone will Likely the useful in school instruction and lecture work but the difficulty so far is was the ease with tit a Early development of to lib phonograph. Is that these machines Are held at High prices. And will Only the brought within the reach it of Public instructors As their possibilities and improvements bring great demand for them. One of the novel subjects that will soon in put on exhibition will show minutely the growth and flowering of plants from the time of planting until in full hlo4�in. To 4>btain such results As lies a special room is set aside in the new hot Anir amp a gardens at Bronx bark. In order to show the entire growth of a Lily on the screen in one series the biography cameras and the growing la bulb will the arranged in i it of i Tion in trite room and a picture will the taken every half hour continually for at jut thirty Days and nights. In order to get a uniform Light for every View artificial illumination will in employed. Something like a thousand pictures wifi the made of on subject the final picture showing the of using of the Lily and then its failing away. Though such results have previously the ii obtained they were not taken wit i the necessary uniformity of Light. This work will the under the direction of t. S. Mcgregor curator of the gardens. Experiments of this kind. Too. Are Teing made to show rapidly the changes in scenery from Winter to summer Etc. The experiments of Al Anamaris a the celebrated French astronomer show the kit Stibi Illies of the biography for re a ording astronomical wonders. He Lias taken moving pictures which show Moonrise the Milky Way big tiling shooting stars Sunrise and Sunset. Professors of astronomy in Columbia Colleg a also realize the possibilities of the invention in their work and Ejier menters Are improving extremely sensitive films necessary to take Imja is Sions of the weak astronomical rays of Light. It is particularly the Phenomena of the heavens so Chi at intervals of Many years a strange eclipse transit or meteoric Shower which men travel far to observe and which astronomers hons to observe in photographic effect making it i it a sible for those at Home to a serve the heavenly wonders that few now have the Opportunity of is eing. And As the microscopy has been combined with the biography. So also the astronomers telescopic lenses Are teding combined so that we May see Distant movements invisible to the naked Eye. Many of the moving pictures of naval net ions which naturally could not have been taken at close rang have resulted from the Tele Seo pfc attachment. Captain John Finley an exp Cert on tornadoes now in the american mete Orolog enl service Lias taken some remarkable moving picture s of lightning storms Ami expects to get some pictures of the approach of a Kansas Tornado. Another new and novel exhibit is a Brilliant display of fireworks taken at night. While it has hitherto teen impossible to photograph fireworks by the use of magnesium is Der the Bio graph Lias faithfully recorded the Shower and pin wheel effects of the most costly pieces made. An adv Cal operator in Europe devised the idea of taking pictures from Ali a Bottom of the ear of a balloon in motion. As it ascended rapidly successive pictures were taken straight downward showing the spectators then the surrounding houses and Trees a Hen roofs and country fading rapidly until All that could the seen were dark patches it Nile Earth. The biography camera was made to perform another remarkable feat. Placed on the to of a Brooklyn Bridge j Tower one Clear Day it was turned so As to take pictures in every direction of the Compass covering fifteen Miles in every direction. In the few moments it takes to show these pictures on the screen the spectators see a Panorama covering something like five Hundred Square Miles. A one of the most scientific pieces of Railroad running i Ever said John Rutgers a former employee of the. Pennsylvania Railroad company who has now Given up railroading and is engaged in business at Milwaukee a used to the done on the at that time they were running an hour and a half train from Philadelphia to this City Aud As the present Sihle Ltd of locomotives had not then Len attain it was somewhat difficult of getting engineers to it make it.

To Stop and couple on another engine would not help matters As the time necessary or be Stop More than it qual cd the extra time required to climb tie Grade. Finally they tried coupling on tie extra engine when running at full Speed and the plan work to p4rfe4-Tlon is Long As the train was kept up. It was one of the most tel Dutiful pieces of a it re i Ever saw. The extra engine would the running quietly along several tiles from tiie Grade Ami when the express Cam in sight the so eed of the extra would the at once increased until it w As greater than that of the oncoming train. Then Little by Little tie Engineer would decrease the Speed and drop Back until engine and train would Conn together As gently As a Feather floats to Earth. A Man stationed on tie cow Catcher would couple the two engines together and their unite strength would whisk tiie train up the Grade with scarce any abatement of so iced. The Grade surmounted the Forward engine would then in uncoupled and would run Forward at tops he a until it came to a switch which was on and waiting for it. Into Ali is it would run. The switch would then be closed and a moment later the fast express would Thunder by on its Way to its destination. It was a pretty and scientific sight and if you realized tin attendant danger a thrilling one As Wen to a the jokers budget.
