Dcalitna In s��Dd I   ..���,.,| br the Pro.
di��-llon   oi'   Sounds.
Did you ever bear that you can make
drawings by sound, or, rather, that the
sound vibrations will cause designs to
be made with the proper Implements
at hand?   Here Is the way to do It:
At a hardware _tore get u piece of
sheet bras* one-eighth of an Inch thick
and six Inches square. The sheet
should be perfectly flat, or if it Is not
it should be hammered so and the
edges rounded off. In the center of the
���heet cut a hole three-sixteenths of an
Inch ln diameter. If the sheet has
been hammered It must now be heated
In a redhot stove and cooled slowly.
Now cut a six inch piece from a
broom handle and fix one end of it
firmly in a block of wood. The other
end you must round off and screw th��
plate of brass on it.
If you draw a violin bow over the
edge of the brass plate a tone will be
sounded. Practice this until the tone
ls quite clear and strong. Now sprinkle some sand on the plate, and the
grains will dance about while the note
is sounded, showing that the plate is
in vibration.
Now put your finger on the edge of
the plate In the middle of one side. At
the corner of the side at an angle of
forty-fire degrees draw the how, and
the sand will form in two lines al right
angles, starting from your finger. This
is because the plate uow vibrates In
parts, one part moving up, while the
other moves down, and the lines between these parts have no motion.
Therefore the sand settles ln them.
By drawing the bow at regular distances from the ringer or by touching
the plate iu more than one place at a
time while some oue else draws the
bow a variety of sand figures will bu
If you will mix a little lyeopodium
powder with tlie sand when the plate
vibrates it will form curious little
heaps nml whirlpools, which add to tbe
moving eft'eet of tbe designs.
Instead of u brass plate you may use
one of ulass six or eight inches square,
aud its sharp edges you may smooth
down with a file moistened with turpentine.
To prove to yourself that the plate Is
still or almost so at the sand Hues
make a cardboard cone about ten inches long, two nnd a half inches in diameter at its larger eud and small enough
at the other end to fit into n rubber
tube, wblch should be about two feet
long. Let one person cause the plate
to vibrate, while anothei- holds the
large end of the cone over the plate,
applying the rubber tube to the ear.
When the middle of the cone Is exactly over u sand line scarcely auy tone at
all will be healed, and tbe nearer the
cone is to the sand line the weaker the
sound will lie, while it will lie clear
and strong ut the farthest p >';;its from
tbe sand lines, proving that the sand
falls Into lines, and as the parts of the
plate move in opposite directions on
eaeh side of tbe sand lines their effect
Is equalized or destroyed, causing no
sound in the air In the cone balance
wbeu directly over those lines.���Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Jessie Maclachlan���the name of this
sweet singer aloue is enough to bring
lo any Scotsman who has ever had the
pleasure of listening to her singing.
pleasant memories of the dear homeland, and the Scot who is present at
any of her concerts, listening to her
masterful interpretation of Scotland's
most soulful ballads, forgets his _mr-.
roundings and his distance from the
heather-clad hills, and lives again for
the lime being in his childhood's
home, hearing the sweet songs of the
long  ago.
It was her farewell concert, more's
the pity, Jessie Maclachlan will
never again tour through Canada and
the l'nited States, hut will retire into
private life when she returns home
again. No one but an artist would
dare attempt to describe her incomparable Kinging last evening. She
thrilled the hearts of every one of the
great audience within the four walls
of the opera house, and.the impres
sion made liy her rendering of the
simple old ballads will live long in the
minds of those fortunate enough to
hear her. Jessie Maclachlan stands
alone, a queen of song. Enough is
eaid when it is remarked that the nip-
porting company was worthy of such
an accomplished singer as Jessie Maclachlan.
The Sons of Scotland are to be congratulated on the success of their effort to provide a rich musical treat

Not all the mahogany which we see
ln use today exhibited as an heirloom
Is the real antique It is said to be, for
heirlooms may be made to order, and
even a furniture connoisseur will have
difficulty in detecting the difference.
Most people think of mahogany as ii
deep red, while, in fact, when new il is
a light color without stain, and when
treated with colorless liquids it becomes a golden shade. This darkens
with age, and at present all the genuine mahogany which we see must bave
attained its dark hue through centuries
of use.   It Is about the most expensive
of the woods In general use. but Circassian  walnut  is valued even big!	
l'.irilseye maple is uext, a costly male
rial on account of tbe great difficulty
In treating it. Its grain Is perhaps the
most eccentric of all the various styles
and consequently its working up and
its lusting qualities are rather uncer

differences in its density and hence iis
disposition to crack and spilt. Vernis
Martin is a style which was a favorite
In the reign of Louis XV., and Us popularity has not waned with the years,
it takes its name from a famous family named Martin who were noted cabinetmakers in Louis XV.'s reign. This
beautiful spattered gold dust decora
tion. with lis paintings by Watteau, is
lbe real Vernis Martin style, uncbang
