Grape-Nuts mentioned in the paper.

was very nice aud it was too bad that
his cap hud left a red crease there.
It was rather n familiar looking fo .

Bleached fabrics aro cooler than unbleached ones. In summer and winter
all clothes should lit sufficiently loose
to give the limbs and respiratory organs their full freedom.
Color ihould also play an important
part in tho choice of our clothing for

for summer, because it is one that, ab-

Pish Preserved Without Ice.
Professor Alexander Danilevsky,
a Russian scientist, claims to havo discovered a new process for preserving
fish. Before a recent Invitation luncheon whs eaten, the guests saw fourteen
days' old fish in glass ,1ars, immersed
in a liquid which is tho professor's
Biie.cial preparation. Tho fish wero
then taken out of the jars, and the
guests saw them cooked and afterward
ate them. The lish had been sealed up
in tho presence of impartial witnesses.
Prof. Danilovsky claims by his method
to keep fish fresh for as long as throe
weeks ur u month. He also has a
process by which he can keep lish in
iars for two years, and they will slill
�� thoroughly pure and eatnblo. The
professor worked for fifteen years bc-
foro ho brought' his experiments to u
successful issue. He assorts thnt his
invention will revolutionize the fishing industry.

Within the building overlooking the

Dangers Which Beset Markers.       '
Torpedo marking is nn operation
which is full of danger to the markers.
Tho ingenious implements of destruction sometimes run amok In spito of
every precaution. A marker at the
Blank range was recently watching un
oncoming torpedo.
Within a few yards of his raft the
torpedo head emerged from the water,
and before the astonished marker could
move the weapon appeared to take a
flying leap at, tho rnt't. It cleared it as
by a miracle, and plunged into the
water on the other side. So near did

Sir:---Yon may remember that nbout
a year ago, I wrote a brief article (or the
] Review on how to keep standard time.
I    Since then I   have been  still  experl-
| nienting for uiy own   satisfaction,   ind
, have found a much simp er a eel more re-
��� liable method than that which I was then
The method I then advocated was the
shadow cast by a window casing or a
plumb line upon a in ridhn marked on
the , inflow sill. Under favorable circumstances this plan cannot be excelled;
but I find that frame houses are liable to
get out of plumb as well as to shift their
i position from different causes. The window sill also may contract unevenly f inn
I tlie sun's heat in summer and expand
unevenly from the wet in winter.   Con-
| sequently one bas to be continually tc-st-
! ing his wind >w casing aud his meridian,
which is very troublesome.    Then there
iis the difficulty of deducing standard
noon from local noon.
I A much simpler and always reliable
plan is to use a plumb hne-and two fixed
! stars.
Two good stars to use are Polaris (the
North Star) and Eta Ursae Majoris (tlie
star iu the tail of the Great Hear farthest
from the pointei ;. I Another simpler
way of stating it perhaps is: the last star
in the handle uf the Big Dipper und
farthest from the holy ol the Dipper;
and likewise the last star ill the handle
cif the Little Dipper. When tin- handle
of tlie Big Dipper is pointing towards
the ground you will notice that the star
I lita gradually move.-, eastward until it is
vertically under Polaris. 1-'ind by means
of a plumb line when these stars are in
a vertical line. Vour plum > can be
fastened to the top casing of a north
door or window-the window is better, as
you call lower the top sash aud make
your observation through the top half,
while the lower sasli protects your plumb
w'eight from any draft.
When both stars ure exactly behind
the cord at the same time, note the
time and record it somewhere
[or future reference. It is presupposed
that your watch is correct to start with.
Vou are now safe for the rest of the
year, aud can in a very short time, get
the standard time on any c'.ear night
within a few seconds. The stars will be
behind the plumb line the following
night 3 minutes 55.91 seconds earlier-3
minutes 56 sec. is close enough, I think
for most of us. If you forget to wind
your watch seven days after your first
observation, multiply 3 min. 56 sec. by
seven and subtract the result from the
time you recorded. Set your watch to
this time, block the balance wheel of
your watch witli a fine camel's hair brush
or a few hairs, wind the watch and get
behind jour plumb. The second the
stars arv vertical release your balance
wheel, and you huve the time.
I   clahn   credit   for   this   particular
method, although it really is a variation

of the plan often used by Surveyors and
engineers when away on expeditions. It
is so simple that any one can use it.
I find that the .southern sky is clearer
as a rule at Courtenay, and I prefer to
use a pair of stars there on account of
their brightness; viz., Uetelgcux (Orion's
right shoulder) and Sirius (the brightest
star in the whole heavens.) A line
drawn to the left through Orion's belt
will almost bit Si.in.. As soon as one
has learned these stars there will be no
trouble In keeping the time, It i.s an
ideal plan for busy farmers.
