Sangster In Will Carleton's Magazine, Every Where. criss-cros- Spiders of the Water, The water spider runs about on the leaves of aquatic plants and catches the insects that live among them; but the nest In which this spider lives Is a silk bag filled with air, and it 13 anchored beneath the water. Its opening points directly downward, so that no air can escape when the spider enters it. After the nest has been made large enough the spider proceeds to fill It with air in the most remarkable way. She carries it in, just as human people might carry coal or wood or water into their houses. Going nearly to the surface, she puts the end of her body out of the water for an instant, then jerks it quickly under with a bubble attached, crosses her hind legs over it and descends to the nest, into which she then allows the bubble to escape. This is repeated until the nest is filled with beautiful, shining, silvery bubbles of air. The spider has chosen this singular abode to escape destruction by water fowl. The leaves of most aquatic plants lie flat upon the water and offer only few places where the spider could hide from enemies. The thought of a house of silk filled with air and anchored in crystalline, sparkling liquid would do for fairyland story, but here It Is In real life. Ferocious Bengal Tigers.

Electricity Causes Lockjaw. result of an electric shock, Miss Emma Pennington of Cumberland, Md., has lockjaw, and her body is in several places marked with spots. She was at first almost completely paralyzed, but is slowly regaining the use or her muscles. Miss Pennington visited her friend, Mrs. Hambright, and, going in at the back door, found the breakfast dishes and resolved to wash them to surprise her friend. When she turned on the water spigot she was knocked down by an electric charge. A power wire used to run Hambrights printing press had fallen afoul of the water pipe. As the the result Chinese Taught Secretly. In China little attention is paid, as a rule, to the education of girls, and moreover, very little information is given by natives to foreigners who show much interest in this subject Chinese girls who have come under the influence of missionaries are taught to read and write, and they also devote some time to the study of geography. Except for their dress, these little girls look much like Amer! lean girls. Industry is the parent of fortune. Great talkers are not great doers. Boon to Tortured Cattle. When cattle are running at large in the field there is an opportunity for them to rid themselves of the insect pests which , annoy them, but when the animals are tied in the stable there is little chance to swing the head around to dislodge the flies from the forward quarters, and so the troublesome pests are free to torture the animals at will. It is the object of O. B. Gibson of Thayer, la., in designing the strange looking shed here pictured to provide an apparatus which will enable the cattle to rid their bodies of the flies as they enter the stable, the latter place preas it ought to sumably being be, at any rate. The shed has at its inner end a series of brushes, so arranged as to leave an oblong opening much smaller than the body, In order that the flies may be brushed off as the animals pass through to gain an entrance to the interior. During the passage of the cow the only place from which light can enter the shed is through the overhead chamber, to which the insects fly as they are brushed off. An automatic gate in the shed opens and closes the entrance to this chamber with the passage of each animal, thereby making Weeder attachment for cultivators. may work equally well when the cultivator Is moving in either direction, it is mounted on a swinging arm, controlled by a crank within easy reach of the driver. By giving the crank a half turn in either direction the rake is lifted from one side of the cultivator to the other, or can be elevated to drop a load of weeds at any desired point In the field.

In three and a half years Japan has added to its merchant navy 300 steamships and 100,000 tonnage, and also 3,000 sailing vessels of 250,000 tonnage. In 1896 the country possessed only a single steamship over 5,000 of this tons; It has now twenty-on- e class. In 1898 Japan owned 627 steamships of 429,774 tonnage; and 174 sailing vessels of 24,014 tonnage. In 1899, 679 steamships of 407,534 tonnage; and 1,485 sailing vessels of 165,710 tonnage. In 1900, 753 steamships of 498,375 tonnage; and 2,783 sailing vessels of 270,161 tonnage. In 1901, 942 and steamships of 557,166 tonnage; 3,416 sailing vessels of 315,767 tonnage. The number of sailors has increased until in 1901 there were 15,412 officers and engineers (304 foreign) to the merchant fleet. The small number of foreigners is as striking as the increase of the commercial navy. The Latest Washing Machine. There are two very good reasons why many housewives continue to do their washing over the tub and scrub the clothes on the washboard every Monday, instead of making use of the modern washing machine. One is the cost of the machine and the other is the necessity of finding room for an extra article of washday furniture, which, in the majority of city houses, is no small item. To both these reasons the washing machine invented by Leonard B. Brooks of Independence, la- -, gives the very good answer that It requires only a small outlay of cash and takes up no extra space when not in use, and it goes without saying that it will do its work quite as well as the ma- - acto understand from newspaper counts, but Prof. Hills explanation clears up the matter, so that It is readily comprehensible. The immense store of coal which the French government maintained at this point from which to supply the vessels of her navy, is, according to Mr. Hill, still burning, and is being Too many there are who but skim oer mistaken for the crater of Mont Pelee the ground. at Who never sink down where the treasure by vessels passing that point is found. the afire set was coal The by Who strike a pick here and another one night molten lava. there.

To the dog that has been his companion for two years, Hugh Morehouse, son of a merchant at Memphis, Tenn., owes his life. The child got tangled up with a live electric wire and fell, screaming, while several passers-bwere knocked down while trying to extricate the lad. The dog tugged away at the boys clothes until the current from the wire shot through the dogs body and the animal dropped dead. Before the pet died, however, It had succeeded in dragging the youngster away from the contact y Eyeless Chicken in Atlanta. Mrs. M. C.
