The Verdict.
"Ho hoiu-st with me���don't try io soften mutters.   1 would rather have the

hope."    ('
There was hesitation in the reply,
and Oliver Dynecourt, who, on account of his advanced, pioneer >vork
and hi. during operations, had -.been
specially recommended to Miles
Hernesley, looked squarely into the
eyes of his patient, and looking he
felt an odd throb of admiration for
the man who could receive so quietly
���such a verdict as had just been pronounced.
"You can suggest, no operation ?
Nothing that can cheek tho disease?"
Again Oliver Dynecourt,hesitated perceptibly before replying, and his
eyes travelled from the face of the
man opposite him to the sycamore
tree outside his window, almost.'as
though he sought inspiration for his
reply fromvthc green shoots that were
"'struggling ^outwards to the April-sunlight. "
"I���am afraid," ho began again,
"that no operation is possible; there
is nothing I can suggest. I am speaking very crudely, very honestly, as
you have asked mc to do--I do not
know of any way in which the disease
fan he arrested. 1 wish 1 could���have
.. His eyes came back from the green
leaves of the sycamore to fix themselves once more upon the man who
.faced him, and for a long moment the
two men looked silently into each other's eyes.
Miles Hernesley sat very still, perhaps the very" stillness gave evidence
of suppressed emotion���for no man,
however strong in character, can hear
unmoved what is virtually a sentence
nf detith, but beyond that stillness
I here were no signs of perturbation
in the man's bearing. His grey eyes
did not flinch under the young surgeon's gaze; his colour did not
change; only the already lirmness,
and the hand that rested on his knee
closed_ so tightly that it, seemed    to
had spent fifteen years of his life in
eoldiering, and perhaps much fron-
;Ier warfare, and many hairbreadth
escapes, had imbued him with a larg-
ur shar.o of courage than falls to the
lot of most men. And yet the facing
of death in the heat and excitement
of a' fight needs courage of another
quality from that which kept thisi
man quiet and apparently unmoved,
whilst he faced the prospecfof a lingering and painful jleath from disease.
His grey eyes looked steadily into
Dynecourt's'alert dark ones���ho had
always been reckoned an observant,
man-���a good judgo of his fellow-beings,, and in judging Dynecourt to be
unusually clever and with more than
the average gift for diagnosis, ho had
judged correctly. Thoso keen oyes
of the surgeon, those capable hands
with tholr Iirm yet gentle, touch, and
their finger-tips that almost 'seemed to
ho endowed with life���had at onco
dlscovorcd tho sourco ol' mischief in
hlH vigorous frame, had gone unerringly to (he very root of the trouble.
���Not. for iv single moment did Miles
ijornesloy doubt tlie verdict that, had
���fallen so hesitatingly from the other's
ltps; his silence implied no questioning, it only signilled a gathering up
of IiIh forces to make un adequate re
ply to so momentous   an
grcal deal."
"Fer���a year'.'" A little .mile hovered over Honiesley's face, a little
smile thai held a uace���only a tiny
trace of hiiloniess.
".So much can ho dono in a .ear,"
the ^llier 'man answered very gently, j
a fla:;h of piiy pas-sin*. from his dark!
eyes to those steady    grey    ones,    a ;
'pang of pity contract inn his lu'ari, as!
��� ji realization swept over him of what'
I this verdict nniht mean lo this other,]'
wlv) was yei in the prime vigour   of
1 manhood.
.    "Vos, a great deal can be done In a
. year," Hernesley spokf mere briskly,
tho bitterness lelt his smile ; a   curl-
.ously eager look suddenly lit up   his
face.   "1 had not thought of   that   at!
lirst, but a ftrcat deal can be done in a |
lyear."   lie drew in liis breath sharply, i
,as if an idea hud just leapt into   hie '
j mind���an idea, which,. Judging by tho j
I light in his'oyes,'���'��� gavo .him   strange
pleasure.     He    leant    forward    and
spoke with curious earnestness.
"Tell mt* ono other thing," lie said.
"H has only just occurred to me���that
j 1 might���that 1 could 1 ."muiih���tell
iino, this���would there he any objection to my marrying? Is iny state of
health such as fo make it justifiable?
Or should 1 bo doing a cruel wrong if
I asked a womun to sliaro this���oiie.i
yoar with me?"
"You are perfectly justified in marrying," Dynecourt answered quickly.
"The 'disease is hot hereditary; you
would be doing no'wrong whatever in
asking a womau to share your life���
you will not hand on any terriblo ,
heritage. And���forgive my plain
speaking���a woman who loves you
will bo far happier if you allow lier to
share that ono year with you, than
if you condemn her fo live apart
from you. She would be happier taking care of you, than eating hor'heart
out alone. <lt a stranger may offer advice, I should strongly ivdviso you to
"Thank you." The other man's
voice had become quiet again, the
eagerness had gone out' of It, and
though there was still a certain undercurrent of excitement in his voice
and manner, the almost boyishly triumphant" note was no longer there.
"Thank you," ho repeated slowly, rising from' his chair and looking round
the, unpretentious room as if he were
suddenly seeing it for the first time,
'I���am afraid 1 have given you a very-
bad quarter of an hour this morning.
Putting on the black cap must be a
thankless task." The littlo smile
that accompanied the words gave
Dynecourt more pain than if his patient had shown signs" of the white
feather, or taken his death* sentence
more hardly. . He also rose to his feet,
and held out his hand.
"To have to say. what I had to say
to you is a hard ..thing to do," he answered. "I wish I could have said
something different, or have put it
better���made, it easier for ..you."-y";
"I preferred the _naked truth plainly spoken," Hernesley replied quickly,
shillyshallying. I would always . rather know the worst at once. Under
all the circumstances. I suppose you

Dorothy moved away from the bedside, and straightened heself with a
weary gesture of actual physical fatigue, and a curiously hunted look crept
into her eyes. Wrhen her mother's
voice flowed oil in those fretful accents, when the stream of nagging
words continued without break or

."Perhaps I had better just go down

"Oh! no���nothing." Mrs. Carstairs'

the door, and as the girl's tall figure
entered ho took two quick steps forward, then stopped .hort, catching
his breath sharply.
'^Vhy do you look so ill?'' he exclaimed, giving her tio more conventional greeting, only looking down
at her with an eager, almost, hungry
glance, beneath which tno colour
mounted slowly to her white cheeks.
" Not ill���only���tired," she answer-
<-'d, holding out her baud, with an obvious wish to draw him back,to the
safe grounds ' of conventionality.
" Mother slept badly last night1-! was

"It. Is not ."11," he an,:.vorod abruptly: "you look worn'oul. Are they
killing you between them? "
"No���oh! No, of course not." She
smiled, and her smile was like a dagger in Miles' heart. "Only everybody must bo tired sometimes,, and
1 have been extra busy lately���and--"
" 1 cai_e to-day for rather a special

standing still again when he saw how
she shrank back from him flushing
vividly. " I would not have come at

" Something ��� unexpected ? "
repeated his words from sheer
vousness, for the expressi'M In

weakness and easy easy good nature
had wrecked his family fortunes.
AVhilst-as for Mrs. Carstairs--she had
promptly sunk Into fretful Invalidism,
from which nothing had since been
able to rouso her.   Just a trifle had
been"saved from the general   wreckage, just enough lo tavi- them   Irom
.actual'beggary, and Dorothy had givr
en up a .promising hospital career to
live with and tako caro ot tho two old
people.   They   needed   nursing���sho
was trained to give it them; and   to
bring grist to the mill she undertook
as much fliassago work as she could
do in the intervals of caring for her
,l'retful mother, and cheering her depressed and feeble   father.     It   was
small wonder,  then,  that her    face
had grown thin and white, that there
were deep shadows undor her oyes
and that she moved with a languid
step, curiously unlike   tho   buoyant
vigour of movement which In former
days had seemed tov her friends   so
characteristic of her buoyant nature.
-On the landing outside their   sitting-room door she paused a moment
and looked into the street below. It
was ono of those drenVy thoroughfares
along which no traffic of interest ever"
seems to pass, whoso houses are almost entirely let in apartments, and
occupied, by people who struggle nev-
er-endingly to make two   far   apart
ends meet-���a street whos1)    general
aspect can be described only by the
ono word���sordid.
"I wonder wtiy ..Tiles   has   come,"
Dorothy reflected, lier thoughts turn
ing to the visitor, the friend of   her
childhood and youth, who only a fewr
months before,had asked her to   bo
bis wife.    "If onljj he will just   go
back'to the old, friendship if will   be
all right,,but���I couldn't bear to have
to, refuse him; again���and I couldn't,
say anything but. no���Oliver is more

Sighing, she turned from her   Contemplation of tho   desolate   outside
world,0andt opening the door, entered
the room, which, in spite cf all   her
.effor,t8_to_makeLi���Lhome;like, remajned

P. R.  We often think of the term, "Beauty  versus Business" but you will luul  that beauty unij business go hand iu  hand with one of tho great corporations of Canada. You havo only to  tako a run over tho Canadian Pacific  Railway Lines, North West and east,  taking in the minor branch lines as  well,,, and you will find that nearly  all the stations, large and small, have  undertaken to" beautify tho grounds  by Agents whose wives ami families  are now so interested in this pleasant  occupation, that each year sees added beauty aud enlarged areas of the  limited spaces of grounds of depot  and station houses that aro given over  to the cultivation of flowers.  Tho Canadian Pacuic Railway  Company is tho first in all the American Continent to attach importance to this, tho artistic sldo of a  money-making business; and it  speaks well for a day and generation,  given over to tho worship of tho Dollar, that this, the Dollar, is mado to  givo to the traveller���������pleasure, to the  toiler���������pride, and to the Company a  special Dopartment in this most unusual lino.  The Floral Dopartment of the C.P.  R. has its busy hive of departmental  workers, just as tho heavy Traffic  management has its own, From the  floral Dopartment twice each year  goes, the daintily packeted seeds and  the bulbs" and roots which are, later,  mado to enliven and to ornament the  dull places of common earth. Twice  each year come in "returns" in the  shape of reports from tho various  agencies, and tho correspondence filed show how much interest has been  aroused in the minds ot ino workm.  man���������interest in beautifying and improving where . nature has most  scarcely given her favors.  Tho Floral Department provides  tho seeds and bulbs to the station'  agents, and the station agents "he-  u\teu wanes': plane ami v,uu._, tram  and coax tho budding blossoms which  later give so much enjoyment to (he  .no who does the work as to the  passer-by. _ People passing by mark  tho tiny garden spot lovingly tended  by busy hands, and, passing on, carry with tlu-m���������the perfumed thought  of that infinitesimal Eden of the  prairie wilds. "What a beautiful  spot" this the joyous exclamation  heard when the rushing engine slackens speed at some out-of-the-way spot  in a wilderness of firs and pine and  rock, for, where the rock conquers,  you will find these tiny gardens, and  it is told of one especial spot along  the bleak shores of Lake Superior  ���������where the station agent and liis wife  having received . the smail packeis  with the requost .that they, should  "put them in tho garden" burst out  laughing, saying, "A garden, a g-a-r-  d-o-n^ what the CJP.R. _shpuld_send us.  is'a "goartbtliis rocky place." But  that evening, when.the shadows lengthening fell, and the two, man and  wife, were sitting at the tow browed  door, and tho great Silence of the  place weighing thought and heart  htavily down, the woman said "I've  a notion to carry enough earth from  the valley over there to mako a small  bed to plant these garden seeds in."  'Very well," said the husband, "It'll  pass the time anyway." So the two,  basket in hand, wont down the lone  trail and they carried earth to where  the rock rebelled,- and presontiy the  dull grey of. rock and the parched  greens of hemlock aiid spruco wero  enlivened, not to say shocked, Into  smiles to flno: red and pink and whito  and; yellow blossoms rising up as a  song might rise above a heavy sigh.

Our baseball team is at tho bottom' of  tho league, and Reverend Glide is going to preach on "Tho Last Shall be  First."   ������������������  The Needle and the Pole  " "Truo as the necdlo to tho polo,"  like many another popular saying,  conveys a distinctly erroneous iux-  pression. In order to keep itself duly  informed as to tho unfaithfulness, of  tlio needle to the pole, or, technically,  the "variation of the compass" from  tho truo nortli, a Division of Terrestrial Magnetism Is maintained.  Not only does the magnetic needle  vary at different places, but the variation changes from year to year, and  even at different times in the day.  On magnetic-survey charts those  places whicli, at^ a particular time,  havo tho same amount of variation,  are connected by what is known as  an isogonic, or equal variation line.  Through theso points on the map In  which thero is no variation of the  needlo from the truo north a lino  known as the agonic passes.  Iron deposits and mountain ranges  modify the action of the unknown  causes of the periodical variation,  and cause thoso lines to becomo even  moro crooked than those which mark  equal temperatures, known as isothermal lines.  Isogonic charts may be accurate  today and full of small errors in a  few years. Tho famous Mason and  Dixon's lino, between Pennsylvania  and Maryland, whicli was surveyed  in the years 1763 to 1767, was run  by the stars and not by the needle,  a great piece of foresight in that day.  If it had beeu surveyed by the compass in 1800 it would have shown 1  deviation in some places of two miles,  and bad tho line been run by uncorrected compass a hundred years iatev  in 1900, the variation would have  reached^nearly nineteen miles to tbe  South, and the rich coalfields-of twe  Maryland countries would have been  thrown into Pennsylvania.  The discovery of the magnetic  needle's shortcomings is believed to  have been made during the voyage of  Columbus. The disclosure constitutes a high trjbuto to tho scientific  perceptions of that day, even though  it spread consternation among the  ships' c.ews. N  . A Trail of Twisted Trees  All manner ol devices havo been  employed to mark a lino of march, but  It ls thought that tho most curious  method of "blazing tho trail," Is that  still to be seen in Africa.   In the year  1889, after a fierce battle with tbo  Abyssinians,  the dervishes    pursued  tho foo as far as the lake district. The  mahdi's men had small knowlelg'e of  geography and little topographical intelligence.   So the advance party, in  order to mark tho route for those who j j  camo after and also  to  guide    the  force on their return journey, twisted ,  the saplings along the way into living j  knots.   The war ended, but tho tied  trees grew and flourished, although j  uncouthly twisted and distorted,' and  aro now the only reminders of that up- j  rising of the dervishes.  quickly stops coughs, cures colds, hosts  the throat and lungs      -      -       23 cents.

The Langworths lived in a corner  house so easily accessible from the  street that they were constantly annoyed by persons ringing to ask  where other possible inhabitants of  that street were to .be found.

Her mother saw  his displeasure at her daughter's presence and made an excuse to send her  from 'he room. Lord Toppington seated, himself and said:  i "Lady Polndexter, I come in the interest of a young American who has  recently arrived in London with a desire to enter the social -circle.

She looked down upon the carpet  ���������meditatively;  | "Can you assure me that this will  aot be known?"  I "I can."  I "Not for fifty times the amount  would I consent to Gladys hearing of  it. She has great ^family pride and  would scorn such a transaction."  i Lord Toppington took a bit of paper  from bis pocketbook and, rising, offered his hand to Lady Polndexter.  The paper was in his palm, and when  he left It was in hers.- It was a check  for ������200.  |- George Springer was a very singular  young man. He had a genius for  finance that few men even understand.  When ho began his career ten yearn  beforo his appeaarance in London ho  startled old financial heads by tho apparent recklessness of his plunges, and  they pfcdlctcd a brief career for bim,  the end being his burial under nn enor-.  mous debt Instead ho emerged with  millions to. his credit Being still a  bachelor, he concluded to' see the  world, uot on tho outside, but on the  Inside. With n keen Insight into human riatiiro ho knew that there aro  but few things In tho world money will  not buy. Iio had gone practically to  work to gain an admission to British  society, deb'. Mug Toppington, an lmpo-  cunlouo nou.emnn of excellent lineage,  whatovor that moans, nnd one of the  best social onstnoors in London.  He advised' with'. Toppington as to  what lndy he Bhould, rcservo for him-  ���������elf to tako into dlnnor, and Toppington told him that Gladys Polndexter  would bo as well worth cultivating as  nny ono, Toppington also oxplalned  thntrGlndys was Ignorant of tho fact  thnt hor prosonco had beeu purchased  nnd If she got fin inkling of it tho  Polndoxtora from tliat momeut must  bo counted out from thoir calculations,  Sprlngor was especially attontlve to  this Information, Ho hnd a kcon appreciation of values nnd values of different kinds, Moreover, ho appreciated rhe difference botwoen moral and  monoy values. Ue hnd no permanent  uso for thoso pqoplo whom he wild  bought and wns Interested In meeting  ond whom ho could uot buy, Ho was a  ftrlght follow nnd a Rood con versa-  tlonnllst. Ho dovotod his exclusive  attention to Gladys Polndexter, refraining from being diverted from hor  tt any tlmo by 'others.

Her mother  .-Should-.hare, provided somo means of  concealing Toppington's check, but  had failed to do so!" Gladys demanded to know what the check was for.  There was a family Jar, at the end of  which Lady Polndexter confessed  that the money had come Indirectly  from the American.  Had Gladys, been Indifferent to  Springer tho discovery would have  jH been extremely painful, but since Bhe  had been, to say the least, much f  pleased with him the Incident plunged  her into the depths of mortification.  Filial consideration prevented her  venting her feelings upon her poor old  parents. Toppington was beneath her  contempt Springer was the only one  fit to be made to feel her Indignation.  The next time she met him socially���������  at a ball given by the Marchioness of  Bladesby���������sho. turned her back upon  him.   He at once divined the cause.'  For.tho first time since his arrival  In London Springer felt that he had  encountered something that his millions were powerless to smooth away.  Here was a girl striving to maintain  for. her family���������contrary to her own  Judgment���������tbe social standing they  had always enjoyed, maintaining for  herself rather the substance than the  6hadow-'of that position, for whose  acquaintance, unbeknown to .ber, he  had paid out money from his newly  acquired millions': It was doubtful to -  which of the two the situation was  moro painful, the American or the.  English girL His having purchased  nu entre from the others gave him no  qualms of conscience or self contempt;  his purchase from Gladys Polndexter  he regarded a brutal use of his money.  He did not know how to go about  making reparation. He had no right  to enter her house aud had not had  any such right from the first, since  had she known the terms on which  tho acquaintance had been made she  would not have consented to them.  To write an excuse would be only to  add to the insult he had ottered. It  seemed to him that he could do nothing but grin and bear the position he  occupied toward her.  Toppington, who was very "adroit,  very tactful, felt it to his interest to  smooth the matter over. . The Poia-  dexters were among those whom he  considered his "stock in trade, and any  break between him and them would be  to his Injury. ' After giving Gladys  time to cool he went to her and exonerated Springer from all blame, assuring her that he had known nothing of  those who were to be approached with  a view to buying his way into society.  She averred that no man with (he instincts "of a~gentleman-would-buy-his  ���������way Into any society.  However, the more she thought of  the matter the more she blamed every  one connected with it more than she  blamed the fountainhead. Indeed,  she came to feel a secret admiration  for this man who had so profound a  contempt for the effete social distinctions of the old world that he set about  its purchase ln the same way ho would  buy a country place. She had always  heard America and Americans decried,  but the incident had brought out, as  she.had never felt It before, tho practical status of America ln contrast  with tbo decay of social grandeur in  Europe. The result.of all this was  that she wrote Springer n tote apologizing for cutting him, confining herself to the apology, Ignoring any llame  or excuse for hla own part la the matter of buying his way Into society.  This gave him an opportunity which  DEVICE FOR MAIL CARS.  Apparatus Automatically , Delivers  "    Packages From a Moving Train.  A simple apparatus for delivering  mall, bags or siinilur packages from a  moving train is shown in the accompanying-engraving.- The arrangement  is such as to deliver the article without a violent shock or blow.' A housing is placed ndjuccnt to the track to  recelye the bag, and the.appuratus nets  automatically to throw the bag into  the housing while the train is passing.  The illustration shows a train with  the mail car partly broken away to reveal the- details of the delivering ap-  lULIXi DEIilVBIUNa APPARATUS.  paratus.1 In the car there ls a compartment access to which is had  through-,a lid at the top. At the upper end of the compartment is a holder carried by a lever which passes  through the floor of the c*r and is  fulcrumed to the sill below. The other arm of the lever projects downward and is adapted to engage an operating rail secured to the ties. The  lever is held in normal vertical position by a spring, but when it strikes  the operating rail, which is curved  away from the adjacent track rail, it  is swung on the fulcrum, throwing the  holder through an, opening In the side  of the car to the position indicated by  dotted lines in the engraving. This  serves to, pitch tbe contents of the  holder into the housing. The mail bag  slides along nslideway in the housing  and drops into ,a compartment at the  end. There is a compartment at each  end of the slideway so as to receive  the mail from trains running in cither  direction. A patent on this invention  bas recently been secured by Mr. Hen-  ry Hoffman, St Louis. ���������__  he was not slowl to Improve. , With  his usual direct action he invited her  to a farewell dinner he was to give before leaving London, mentioning that..  though a valuable "favor" would np-  pear on every plate, In her case the  gift would.be worth not over a few  shillings; Gladys debated for some  tlmo whether to accept or decline 'tho  Invitation; Hor own parent's had been  bought. On their account would it not  be better to Ignore openly a matter  which Bhe would bury down iri her  oVm heart.   Sho wroto an acceptance.  At the dlnnor where tho guests, opened packages containing their favors  thoy woro found to bo, very costly.  Gladys Poln/loxtbr found upon her  plate a scaled onvolopo which contained.

Ho  has found that the first attack on the  metal is made by hydrogen In the form  of exceedingly small particles, but not,  as the text books have taught us, by  oxygen, This is in agreement with the  modern theory thnt many substances  when they nre dissolved in water are  dissociated into ions, or minute parti-'  cles smaller even than atoms, all carrying electrical charges. Even pure  water contains a certain number of  these. Acid impurities multiply the  hydrogen ions and strengthen them in  their corrosive effect upou Iron. The  action is purely electric and Involves  an exchange of the electric relations  between tho hydrogen and the Iron.  By Immersing the iron in a concentrated solution of chromic, acid aud then  washing and wiping It, says Dr. Cush-  ,mari, the metal is rendered passive, so  that It becomes capable of resisting  electro chemical attaclt. This, if true,  remnrkB the Circle, means that n method hns nt last been found for protecting structural iron work nnd machln-  cry,'y.,y__ ' ;     '���������,,���������������������������  ' Centrifugal Force.

Temperatures Accurately. ���������  During the summer of'1910 expert  ments were made iii the northern por.  tion of the gulf of St. Lawrence with  a new type of marine thermometer.*  the results ot which promise to aid In  the detection of icebergs in fog and  nt night '  By means of this new, type of marine thermometer It is possible to record sea temperatures to one ene-thou  snndth of a degree C. Tho mlcrotbcr-  momcter Is of the electrical resistance  type. In which variations' of the resistance of tho metal, wire serve to  give a measure of tbe changes of temperature of tho medium ln which the  instrument Is Immersed. The resistance of the wire Is mnde so high that  small variations in tempcraturo pro-  duco comparatively great changes In  the resistance.  The coll is made with a resistance of  125 ohms and consists of 250 feet of  puro iron wire wllk covered *and wound  on a.copper cylinder about four Inches  ln diameter and six inches wide. The  cylinder, is fitted accurately inside a  second copper cylinder. The ends cf  the cylinders are carefully soldered  and rendered water tight, whilo the  connecting wires pass out through the  middle of the outer cylinder. A stout  copper tube ia riveted on to the outer  cylinder, to which other copper tubes  ,can be fastened. The wires' pass  through a lead cable to tho chart room,  where they are connected to the bridge  for obtaining n measure of the temperature resistance, Thus the absolute  temperature as well as the small variations can be accurately measured. By  means of a suitable modification and  combination of a Calendar recorder  with the wire bridge it ls possible to  record automatically tho temperature  to ono one-hundredth of a degree.  Readings can be taken every bnlf minute, aud curves are plotted showing  the variations of water temperatures.  Tho instrument is supported over the  side of the ship about live feet under  the surface of the water. It has been  found thnt the exposure of the bulb of  the thermometer by tbe waves produces no irregularities, as the temperature of air in direct contact with the  sea does not differ from.that of the  Water.  Heretofore tho proximity of Icebergs  bas been determined by means of tho  bridge thermometer and by' Immersing  a mercury or alcohol ship thermometer  into buckets of water drawn up from  varying depths. These instruments  are not as n rale, graduated to" less  than a single degree, which represents  ah Interval on the stem of only one-  eighthof-anlnch.���������Temperatures-taken ln this manner, even as often as  four times ln an hour In a ship going  eight knots." give temperatures only every two miles. The temperatures of  the sea change rapidly in the imme-  'diaite vicinity*, of an Iceberg; hence  comparisons made ��������� between observations taken at Intervals of even one  ,mile are of no value in determining  tho presenco pf icebergs. The oscllln-  tions can be observed only on a continuous record. On the scalo of the  new electrical thermometer n single  degreo of temperature Is represented  by an Interval of two feot, so tliat  variations which would be Imperceptible on nn ordinary thermometer have a  great effect on this sensitive instrument  The South 8oa Swells.

VEGETABLE  FIBER. -..  Australian Marino Plant - Possessei  Valuable Properties.  In Australia there ^vas"recently dls^  covered an extraordinary fiber of marine growth which by reason of the  vast amount,of the deposit and the remarkable qualities of (he fiber is expected to prove of great commercial  importance.  This fiber Is tlie result of tbe shed-  dings of the leaf sheath of a sea grass  botanically known as Posidonia austra-  11s and so fnr hits been found only in  Spencer gulf, South Australia, where  the sheddlngs have been imprisoned  by the action of wind and waves in  the sand flats of tlie gulf.  Tho uses of tlie fiber are found by  experiments made by competent per-  Bons to bo many and varied, nud it  possesses many unique qualities. It  will spin and weave in uuion with  wool and will also take dye equally  well, being so far as Is known the only  vegetable fiber to do tbis. It is practically noninflammable, its charring  point being 373 degrees P., and it^ls to  that extent a nonconductor, unlike cotton. It docs not shrink and has more  resilience than kapok. It is nlso found  to be as good for ship calking as  oakum.  Blankets and cloth woven of a mixture of wool and this fiber, together  with samples of the fiber in various  stages of production from plant to  yarn, are now on view in the sample  room of one of the lending wool houses  in Australia, and the manufactured  articles are being most favorably commented upon by those interested in.the  textile industries. On account of its  splendid dyeing properties it can also  be used in the making of carpets; also  for coir matting, hessian, baggiug,  woolpacks, and it appears difficult to  say to what other uses with proper  machinery it cannot be put.  NEW VEHICLE WRENCH.  Holds Wagon Nut In Jaws by Meant  of a Wire Spring.  Pictured in the accompanying engraving is a wrench particularly  adapted for unscrewing the nuts of  carriage.and wagon axles. The wrench  differs from the ordinary in that it securely holds the nut in place, permitting of conveniently starting the nut  when screwing it on the axle and preventing it from falling and'being lost  when it is removed from the axle.  The general form of the wrench is  similar to the ordinary, consisting of  the usual square socket with an extension at one side,, which serves as a  handle. Fitted in the'socket is a  spring, the general form of which is  indicated-in--Fig.--3.-It-wi!!-.be-ob-  served that the spring is bent at its  center and then doubled so as to provide a portion which extends into the  - IMTBOVBD WAGON WBBifclH.  socket and another portion which  passes alonjs the outside. The outer  portion terminates in n pair of hooks  which pass through openings In the  wrench Just below tho handle and  servo to hold tbe spring firmly In  place. When using a wrench of this  sort the operator may keep his hands  clean, for ho does not havo to touch  tho nut. Tho wrench clings to tho nut  after It has been removed, and thero  Is no danger of its becoming soiled, by  falling to tho ground. The inventor of  this improved vehldo wrench is Car-  roltJ.

A clenuer  and better cut can bo started and  mudo with n. common handsaw If iho  end of tbe saw blado la roundlug, says  Popular Mechanics. This rounding  pnrt should be cut on n radius of about  six Inches. The cutting can be accomplished by describing the arc of a dr*  do and clamping tbo oaw blade In a  vino with the lino at the edge of the  Jaws. The blade can bo cut easily  with a cold chisel uud hammer, The  teeth nro then filed In the circle the  same as tho other pnrt of the blade.  Tho round end will start a cut iu the  surfaco of wood at any point.  Industrial Uie of Veloanlo Aih.

The world is given as a prize" t������  those   of   faith.     "Nothing   venture  nothing have."   But fine weather's no  test.    Twilight, dark and storm tell  it.    "According  to  your faith,"  th������  size of your pitcher determines hoifi  much you may carry away.  Rubyour  Aladdin's lamp.    Murmur "Sesame."  Exercise your faith.   Living next doot  the mint won't make ono rich.   "Ask  and   ye   shall   receive." ��������� Out   from "  Matthew's  house down to  the  seashore go tho Master and his disciples.   The crowds press, the Bun is  hot,  but a cooling breeze. Wowb in  from Tiberias. , There's a motion of  the crowd, a craning of necks.   Wbo  comes?   The ruler of the synagogue.  Tall, broad shouldered, black  beard,  eyes   wet   with   tears���������it  ls" Jalrus.  Trouble-brings bim to Jesus.   It ia ���������  great lodestone for most of us.   "Myu  little daughter is dying.    Com������ lay  thine Hand on her head and she shall  live."   His prayer is short, Intense, to  the point.   Crisp thinking makes crisp  speaking.  "Drowning Mon Clutch at Strawa.*  In that crowd, with- Us iotsam and  jetsam, Is a pale, bloodless,'������lck woman. . Once comfortable in-means the  physicians' of Damascus nnd Jerusalem now have her all.   Says ��������� neighbor at ber home: "Racbael, God bo  praised:   The Man of Nazareth id In  Capernaum.   lie may have power to  heal thee."    "What will  he charge?  I've lost all."   "Nolhing; without m.oa>.  ey and without price."   Her children  protest.   "Mother, multiply not thy disappointments; this healer may be lik������  tho rest."   "Restrain mo not.   I'll try  once more."   Faith springs eternal in  the sick man's breast   That accounts  much for many physicians and patent  medicines.   This womnn goes in faith.   ,  She elbows through the crowd.   "IIow,  forward is that woman!    Think you  not  others  desire   to  see,.the   great  Teacher?"     She  pays   no   attention.  When was a woman ever turned from -'���������  her promise by tbe Jeers of a crowd?  Now she's close.    There's that great  functionary of  tlie  synagogue.    His  family sent for Christ   It must be nice  to be rich like they.   She had money  _once._ Her .thoughts a re__ s_w|ft; w hat_  must be done muBt be done quickly.  She won't speak to the Nazorene, of  course;- only touch that blue hem of  his garment.   He will never kno*������ it  Out goes the thin trembling arm ltom  nnder her cloak nnd into 'tlio poor racked body, along the quivering prayer of  that outstretched finger, went strength  and healing.    The most remarkable  miracle recorded.  The Power of Helplessness.  If you want anything done' that requires quiet, persistent faith start u  woman ot It.  The courage and persistence of women In the temperance war  is marvelous.   Racbael has got by faith  what money couldn't buy.' Tho Master  turns.   "Who touched me?"   The disciples smile Indulgently.- "Scores, Master.   How could they help tt In such a  jostling crowd?"   Exquisitely, sensitive  Christ!   Tbo allied armies of hell cannot divert hlrn, but a nick, nerveless  finger of human suffering turns bim.  "Daughter!"   She'll never forgot that  sound.   It's tho finest; Instance- of delicacy and tact In the world's literature.  How It soothed ber distressed modesty  when she suddenly beenmo conscious  of tho crowd's eyes upon her! "Daughter, thy faUli, not my robe���������thy faith  Miath mado theo well."   Say, brother of  sorrow, Bister of pain, reach-out nnd  touch hlui.   No Incurable enses puzzle  hlrn.  Touch him.
