Suggestion for Dressing Table.
Women who llko cretonne draperies

gestions for keeping tho cretonno-cov-erod

A pleco of beveled glnss, tho exact

Is laid over tho cretonne. This not

greatly to tho appearanco of a dainty
pleco of furniture.
If Inrgo roses aro used In tho pat

beauty and onhanco tho coloring.
Separate Coats.
For thosb long nnd looso separato

which when woll chosen can bo mado

velours Is a marked favorite. This
Imitates tho markings of tho broad

that ono almost Imagines a furry look
to tho velvet. Tho Irish chochot trim
mings nro simply stunning with this
material; and tho looso designs car
rapidly bo copied by tho girl who
knows how to sow, for thero Is no
8omblnnco of a fit to thorn. Tho
only thing Is to got tho sleeves big

New Oil Engine.
A now oil englno is tho recent and
fruitful development of tho Uternal
combustion motor and Its adaptation
to tho uso of crudo oils or oils of a
specific gravity that precludes their
uso In motors of tho ordinary typo.
Llko all engines sullablo for crudo oil
tho latest Innovation has provision
for tho Injection of water Into tho cyl
inder before compression. This has
tho effect of allowing a much higher
compression without prelgnltlon than
Is qrdlnarlly possible, and it has other
Important effects. Tho builders say
that tho water vapor prevents tho de
composition of tho petroleum to nn
extent, enabling tho englno to run
long periods with crudo oils without
leaving nn excess of deposit on tho
vaporizer's walls. It Is not easy to
understand why water should prevent
decomposition of tho potroloum. Tho
englno works on tho four stroke cycle
and uses tho heavy black petroleum
plls and tho semi-refined or Inter
mediates, as well as tho ordinary re
fined lamp oil. Thero Is a cylinder
lourteon Inches In diameter, giving
fortj -seven brako horso power with
horso power with crude oils. On tho
suction stroko of tho nlstnn air Is
drawn Into tho cylinder through tho
main air valvo, and oil Is pumped
through tho oil sprayer Into tho va
porizer, which receives a further sup
ply of nlr through a shifting valve. At
tho samo tlmo water Ib pumped
through tho water sprayer and ontors
tho vaporizer. This chargo Is then
compressed, nnd, ns tho crank of tho
englno passes tho Inner dead center,
Is ignited by tho hot igniting tube,
giving tho working stroke. Tho ex
haust valvo then opens to allow tho
burnt chargo to escapo, completing
tho cycle of operations. Tho Ignitions
aro continuous on all loads, and tho
ignition tube Is therefore retained at
tho required temporaturo without tho
aid of a lamn excont when startlnc
tho englno. Tho speed of tho machlno
wnter and oil Injected, so that on
heavy loads full charges of oil and
water aro delivered, whllo on light
loadB small charges aro given.
Automatic Railway Signal.
Misreading of signals and falluro if
execute them aro tho most potent
causes of accidents on railways and
It has been tho work of many in
ventors to lessen theso dangers by
Introducing automatic Blgnals, which
shall relievo tho human mind of tho
responsibility ns far as possible. Thus
the block systems now show signals
which aro supposed to provent tho

nnd so it may bo wlso to go a Btop

How this may bo dono Is shown In

small forward truck, with a cord con

A Pocket Umbrella.
An umbrella Bmall enough to go In

Is designed on the prlnclplo of tho tele
scope, and consist of a series of tele
scopic slides, a carrying caso and a

tents resemble a bundle of steel rods

land cement In tho plaster tho chick

floor is of concreto and a wooden

keep the rats from getting under tho
floor or troubling tho chickens in nnj
The cost of tho concreto wortt would
bo 10 barrels of Portland cement,
making tho concrete ono of cement to
nine of grnvel, 9 days' labor for ono
man and 12 yards gravel. Tho other
matorlal and labor would amount to

Poplar Shoots.
S. W. M. How may the roots ot
poplar trees In a neighboring garden
bo prevented from throwing up shoots
In my garden?
Tho poplar shoots which como up in
the yard may be prevented ny sinking
a strip of galvanized Iron along the
edgo of the garden. Tho roots from
which tho shoots spring aro usually
within a fow Inches of tho surface and
a strip of galvanized iron one foot wido
should suffice. If this is not found
practicable, tho roots should be pre
vented from ontorlng tho garden bv
means of a ditch, or in somo other
way. Onco tho roots aro prevented
from entering tho garden tho shoots
may bo gradually eradicated by dig
