An ingenious New Yorker has an
nounced an invention that will percep
tibly reduce the business of the divorce
courts and add a very emphatic negative
to the question concerning the failure of
matrimony. It is an electric clock, con
nected by wires with the kitchen stove.
At the proper hour in thj; morning the
hands of the clock send an electric spark
to light the tire that has been prepared
beforehand. As soon as the temperature
of the kitchen reaches an agreeable point
the rising mercury sounds an alarm that
brings the sleepers to consciousness. It

At the big fire in New York the other
day when the Western Union building
burned, a "life gun" carrying a line was
used to rescue some of the people in the
.ni, utnrr This cuii carries a 44-cal-
iber blank cartridge, in which is rolled a
slender line, 500 feet long. It can be
tired !J0O feet into the air, and the slen
der line is used to carry a heavier rope
up to the top of high buildings, when
all other means of escape are cut off.
It is similar to the torpedo guns used in
the life saving service to throw a line to
a disabled vessel, and offers to be a very
useful adjunct to the apparatus to the
rire department where there are high
buildings beyond the reach of ladders.
This was the first opportunity the New
York tire department had to test their
torpedo gun, and it was successful.'
One of the most famous printing bouses
that ever existed was that founded at
Antwerp by Christopher Tlantin in 1555,
and which continued under the contr 1
of his descendants until 1SG7, a period of
three hundred aud twelve years. The
buildings in which the business of this
remarkable establishment was conducted,
together with all the artistic collections
of the house, its ancient presses, and its
old furniture, are now the property of the
city of Antwerp, and have been convert
ed into a public museum, which, with its
wondrous treasures of art and literature,
may well be regarded as one of the most
interesting and unique in Europe. In an
article entitled "Plantm-Moretus, io ap
pear in Harper's Magazine for August,
Octavia Ilensel w ill describe a recent vis

FRIENDSHIPS OF GIRLS.
Ladies Home Journal.
If vou write a letter to a man friend.
don t put in black and white that you
are "his forever," or that you send a
great deal of love, even only in jest,
but remain either his "very cordially" or
"very sincerely". Sincerity and cordial
ity are possible even with acquaintances
that do not demand either loye or an af
fection that does not last forever. I
wish girls knew how very ill .bred it is
to give, or permit familiarities in word
or pen from either men or women.
Learn to keep your personal affairs to
yourself. Learn to believe that your
first name can only be used by those con
nected with you by ties of blood, or hav
ing the right given by a deep love. Be
lieve me, you will never regret your self
respect as shown in this way, and you
will never cease lamenting permitting a
too familiar intercourse, that in the fu
ture will rise up before you like a skele
ton at a feast. A perfect friendship is
like a rose, after the time of its glory is
passed the leaves may be thrown into a
jar, covered with spices and salt to bring
out the fragrance forever, and be a .de
light to you wherever it is. A freind
ship that is too familiar may also be lik
ened to a rose, but one that early loses
its leaves; they fall upon the ground and
no one treasures them enough to gather
them up and keep them as a momento
of days that have gone by. For a while
there is a sickly sweet smell and then
they are blackened and discolored, and
no odor comes from them. Conclude
then, in forming your friendships, to
make those only that can, when time sep
arates you two, make a pleasant memory
for the future; and one that will not
cause a blush to come upon your face.

FASHION'S NEWEST COLORS.
A long time ago people used to think
that blue was essentially a color for
blondes and angel?. Nobody can dis
pute its being the color lor angels, but it
certainly i not the one to be chosen by a
blonde. The fair skin looks cold enough,
and where blue, specially pale blue, is
put near it. the effect is very undesirable,
because what was clear white before be
comes a palor now. Blondes had much
better wear any of the rose shades, bright
scarlet, warm brown, or dark green, leavj
iug the very trying pale blue to the browu
haired lassie with a bright color, or the
warm brunette w hose skin does not know
the unsightly touch of sallowness. Every
body likes a rose-colored lining, and, to
be in vogue this season, everybody ought
to have a rose-colored frock iu cotton,
or wool, in silk or tulle, it is always most
charitable in bringing out one's best fea
tures and toning down one's worst. Com
bined with white the pink shades are as
dainty as a bit of old china, aud will
suggest the pretty pink and white ladies,
whom Watteau painted on fans, who
played at litt'e Trianon with Marie An
toinette, laughed and jested, and yet did
not fear when they had to face death on
the guillotine for the sake of the king
and the queen. Ladies Home Journal.

For a sweepstakes prcvuricator com
mend us to the Eli Perkins of the
Journal. For further particulars see re
port of the county convention at Weep
ing Water, Saturday, in last night's issue
of that paper. The only confusion in
the convention, if confusion it might be
called, was occasioned by a number of
the delegations arriving late, owing to a
heavy rain the night previous and the
forenoon of the day, which cut the time
short for the transaction of the business
of the convention, and in consequence
the chairman was compelled to hurry
the work along, and in order to do so
he was compelled at times to wield the
gavel quite heavily, and also to be a
little abrupt in shutting off debate.
The only way we can account for the
Journal man's peculiar report of the con
vention is either that it wa3 his first ex
perience in a political gathering, or he
must have sampled a little too often the
beer and whisky which he declares was
plenteous and on tap. So far as the
strength or weakness of a republican
ticket is concerned we think the prevari
cator not the best authority. We are in
possessiol of the fact that one of the de
feated candidates at the convention has
already been approached by the "ancient
enemy" to try to array that gentleman
against the ticket but the old trick failed
and you'll find the party will support the
ticket, and it will be elected by the old
