"And what are your Inventions?"
"My inventions, or rather my discov

just as all the so-called Edison inven
tions spring from the solitary principle
of the sound of waves. I have been
studying the possibilities of the pneu

used in drawing, ale or Deer. . '

and whenever the rider becomes thirs
ty, or desires to secure the good will
of the natives through whose country
he Is passing, he simply takes a little
cup from his pocket and draws the beer
through the spigot. On hot days he can
ride liis machine into a cool stream or
lake, and In half an hour his beer will
be of the proper temperature for drink
ing." "Wonderful!" exclaimed the visitor.
"My dear sir, that beer tunnel Is, af
ter all, but a primitive Idea," rejoined
the Inventor calmly. "Now I will show
you how the same principle may be de
veloped. For instance, here Is a tire
divided Into four compartments, each
one of which is provided with a spigot
similar to the one I have just shown
you. One of these- compartments con

-"But now I would like to show you
two or three other applications of my
great principle. For instance, here is
an ingenious device toy which elec

The Table D'Hote Wheel,
placed on the wHeel of some responsi
ble member of every party that goes
out on a cycling tour. Now, here Is
the same principle still farther de
veloped. This is what I call my table
d'hote tire, which is divided into ten
compartments instead of four, and each
compartment contains what you might
call a little trap door. When the wheel
man determines to partake of his din
ner he sits down under the shade of a
tree, takes his wheel in his lap, extracts
knife, fork, spoon and napkin from com
partment No. 1, then lifts the trap door
of the next compartment for his soup,
takes his fish from No. S and so on,
turning the wheel as he eats until he
-winds up with a cup of coffee, and de
posits his nankin and table ware in
the compartment from which he took
them. That is what I call a rather in
genius device, and I can assure you,
sir, that it will not be long before you
will see companies of wheelmen and
wheelwomen seated by the roadside,
with their wheels in their laps, and en
joying themselves as much as if they
were eating a dollar table d'hote din
ner In New York."
"That is, indeed, a remarkable inven
tion," exclaimed the visitor, as he care

"but after all it is, as you say, merely
a higher development of the useful

The treatment is simple and painless.
The ulcer is first washed with some
antiseptic solution and then covered
with a thin layer of absorbent cotton

trical douche, is allowed to play on the
part affected for ton minutes. The
cotton wool dressing is then applied.
The treatment is renewed every three
days. Tlie origin of the ulcer has much
to do with the specific effect of the
treatment. Frofcssor Doumer states
that where the ulcer is due only to
u varicose condition or a blow imme
diate improvement is usually mani
fested, the pain and itching disappear

goes down, and the ulcer ultimately

action of the spray, as might be expect
ed, shows far less effective results. A
case is given of an elderly man who
had formerly been given to drink and ;
who had large varices. In consequence
of a blow, an ulcer appeared on the leg.
The sore was most malignant, and the
tibia was swollen for nearly three inch

Cars for Trolley 1'nrtle.
! Mention lina hpvri m;n1 5n thpio nn-
es of the growing use in Fhiladelphia
of the trolley cars for special parties
of excursionists or picnickers who are
willing to pay an extra price for the
e use of a car
period. The scheme has
turned out so well that a Baston rail
way company has constructed two ele-
, gantly appointed special cars which are
. to be placed at the disposal of private
parties. The cars are 20 feet long by
7 feet 4 inchos wide. The windows are
unusually large, and when the frames
are dropped the interior is as airy as
that of a summer car. The car is hand
1 somely upholstered'and fitted with elec
tric lights, ornamental kerosene lamps
being provided so that the passengers
will not be left in the dark by any tem
porary break in the electric circuit.
Ten seats are arranged on each side of
the car. and plush-covered easy chairs
with arm rests, enable the passengers
to travel in luxurious comfort. There
will be a special tariff for these cars,
which will be available at any time,
and for any length of time, and it is
not unlikely that as soon as more gen
eral provision is made for the connec
tion of electric lines over extended
tracts of country the chartering of a
trolley car for the summer months
will be found far more enjoyable than
a yachting cruise, besides being infinite-
