A Suhfttltuto for Hydranllo Cement.
Mr. Miles, n well known engineer, makes
tho stntcmont that ordinary brick dust,
rnado from hard burned, finely pulverized
bricks, nnd mixed with common lltno and
sand, is universally and successfully cm
ployed as a substituto for hydraulic cement.
Mr. Miles says that during on engineering ox
pcrionco of somo six years in Cuba bis op
portunities wcro nmplo for testing its merits,
nnd ho found it in all respects suierlor to tho
best UoKcndalo hydrnulio cement for culverts,
drains, tanks or cisterns, or ovon for roofs.
In an oxjicrimcnt to test tho strength of this
product, it was found that a block of it, half
a mluuto in thickness, without sand, and
after immersion in water four months, boro
without crushing, crumbling or splitting a
pressure of llfteon ixninds per square inch. It
is thought that, by thonddltlon of pulverizing
mills to brickyards, to utilize the waste and
broken bricks, a prolltablo manufacture
might bo carried on.
Why Gold In Jewelry Chances Color.
It is well known thnt tho human body con
tains humors and ncids, similar In action to
and having a llko tendency townrd baser
metals, as nltrlo and sulphuric ncids havo,
namely, to tarnish or dissolvo them, varying
in quality in different icrsons. Thousands
wear continually, without any ill effects, tho
choopor clnss of jowolry, with brass car
wires, whllo if others woro tho samo nrtlclo
for n fow days thoy would bo troubled with
soro ears, or, In other words, tho acids con
tained In tho system would so net on tbo
brass as to produco ill results. Instances
havo occurred in which articles of jowolry of
any grndo below eighteen carats havo been
tarnished in a fow days, merely from tho
abovo named causo. Truo, thoso instances
aror.ot very frequent; nevertheless, it is as
well to know thorn. Every caso is not tho
fault of tho goods not wearing well, as it 1
generally called, but tho result of tho partl
ular constitution of tho wearer.
Turn Air Indlcntor.
It is estimated that tho air in u room bo
comes distinctly bad for health when its car

paratus has boon recently patented by Pro
fessor 'Woljicrt, of Nuremberg, which affords
a moosuro of tho carbonic acid present. Bcien
tlflo American gives tho following informa
tion concerning it: From a vessel containing
a rod liquid (soda solution with phenolphtha
loin) thoro comes ovory 100 hoconds, through
a siphon arrangement, a rod drop on a pre
pared whito thread about a foot and n half
long, and trickles down this. Behind tho
thread is a scale Iwginnlng with "puro air"
(up to 0.7 per 1,000) at tho bottom, and end
ing nbovo with "oxtromoly bad" (t to 7 ior
1.000 and mora) In puro air tho drop con
tinues rod down to tho bottom, but it loses its

THE CURIOSITY SHOP.
Who First Used KiirkuT Tim OrefVs In
Forks nro distinctly mentioned In I Samuel,
xill, 1!1, In connection with the lllo which was
used to hnrHn tho .prongs. In tho Penln
tench mention is mado of "lhh hooks,'' evi
dently used for tnklpg tho moat out of tho
jtotsoroff the pans. Ateueus mentions iho
"fork," but It does not npenr whether it
meant a bldent or n trident, and It Is certain
thnt tins ancient Oreoks were Ignorant of Iho
tiso of tho fork whllo eating. Two branched
instrumcuti woro found ntllerculnueum, but
thoy were not known to Iks usM In nny period
of Homnii history, Tho Duko of Burgundy
used forks nt tnlilo nnd is said to havo had
two. In his tlmo tho loaves wens lnado round
and wrro placed by tho side of tho carver,
who had n pointed carving knife nnd nskosver
of silver or gold which ho stuck Into tho
joint of meat, and having cut off a pleco
placed It on a sllco of bread, which was
served to tho guost on tho oiut of tho carv
ing knife. This custom still obtains In timiiy
i tarts of KuroH Beforo tho revolution in
'Vnnco, when a gentleman was Invited to
dinner it wns customary for him to send his
servant with his knife-, fork anil soon, or, if
ho had no ncrvant, hoenrried them in Ills
breeches pocket as n carienter carries his
rule. Tho uso of forks was not introduced
into Kngland until tho timo of James I, hnv
ing boon brought from Italy. Their uo was
ridiculed by many as a suiterservlcnblo pleco
of llncry. Bon Johnson joined in tho laugh
against them in his play of "Tho Devil's
Ass." It Is not difllcult, oven now, to re
member when tho knlfo only, notwithstand
ing tho presence of tho fork, was used to con
voy food to tho mouth, showing how diffi
cult it was to got rid of old customs.
Luminous Clock Dints.
Thoro nro clock dials so coaled with n phos
phorescent preparation as to absorb sunlight
during tho day, and thus bo in n measuro
luminous at night, but in tho opinion of n
largo dealer in clocks nnd watches thoso dials
aro comparative failures, inasmuch ns thoy
io not retain their luminous power for any
rent length of timo, whllo tho effect of tho
phosphorus upon the movement is to tarnish,
corrodo and seriously impair its usefulness.
Phosphorus, as is well known, khscssos no
light in itself, but absorbs when placed in tho
sunlight tho luminosity which it nftorward
displays in tho dark, thercforo such dials
must bo placed during tho day whero thoy
can get tho sunlight. Tlicro is no prqiaration
on the market, so far as tho writer lias lccn
nblo to ascertain, which can bo applied to a
dial, unless it is tho simple phosphorus. Tho
latter Is readily obtalnnblo; but whether its
uso ti)on the faco of tho clock would sccuro
oven tho temiKirary result desired remniiiH to
bo proven. If it is to bo oxerlmentcd with,
care should bo taken to avoid touching tho
hands or the figures of tho dinl, tho phos
phorus lielng applied to tho plain whito sur
faco only, thus allowing, providing tho Illumi
nation is uchioved, tho hands and llgures to
bo sharply defined agalnst'tho light.
A Curiosity in Verse.
"Como, kiss me, sweet Phyllis," said Corydon
As ho walked with tho maid through tho clover
"And tell 1110 you lovo me; thrro's nobody near;
No ono to look at us, no ono to hear."
"Prny tell mo what's growing, sir, Just over
In tho field next tho clover," said Phyllis, tho fair.
" Wliycom and potatoes," said Corydon gay;
"Yes, corn nnd potatoes, now kiss mo, I pray,
And tell 1110 you lovo mo; there's nobody near;
No ono to look at us, 110 ono to hear."
"You'ro wrong," said sweet Phyllis, with confi
"You'ro wrong, for wo both can bo heard, sir, and
I can't Ray 'I lovo you,' nnd kiss you. Not hero,
Whero coninnd potatoes aro growing so near;
To know I am suro you'ro Htifllclcntly wlso
That corn has got ears and potatoes have eyes."
Tho art of etching was introduced about
tho mlddlo of tho Fifteenth century by
Thomas Finigucrra, a Florentine Its vnluo
met with prompt recognition in Franco,
Italy and Germany, but it wns reserved for
later times to enrry it to a state of perfec
tion. It is nu 0cu secret that etching is tho
conwivo action of certain ncids on metal
and glass, tho plates acted upon having been
covered with wax, bearing tho design thnt
has been wrought with tho etcher's nocdlo.
Etching ivns first regarded as an industrial
art, but it soon grow to a higher valuo, re
producing in graceful freedom and precision
of touch tbo very feeling of tho artist.
