While- a great many inventors arc able to invent and perfect new ideas but few of them possess the business toct necessary to introduce their inven tions after they have been patented. Occasionally, however, an inventor is enabled to devise a valuable invention and is at the same time able to realize a snug sum on the same. One of these successful inventors is Thomas S. Ferguson, of Omaha, Ne braska, who has invented a bit, within i which is embodied a removable and I adjustable simper so that oval, 6phcr liical or irregular openings can 'bo drill Ted, the bit being urranged to automat ically utljust itself as it feeds forward. Inventor Ferguson further devised an egg carrier which is the simplest and cheapest egg crate yet invented and placed upon the market and both of these inventions he was enabled to dis pose of to a company with unlimited capital, the patents being procured and sold through Messrs Sues tCo., United States Patent Solicitors, of Omaha, Nebraska. Clarence II. Judson, of Council Muffs, Iowu. has received a patent for an ex ceedingly clever device, which can be used both as a toy and an advertising medium. The invention consists of a peculiarly constructed metal frame which can hi made for a few pennies and which is adapted to hold a square piece of card board such as an ordinary business card, and which when thrown backward will expell the card with a force sutlicient to send if fully a hun dred feet straight upward, the inven tion being practically a card shooting gun. Inventors desiring valuable free in formation as to the luw and practice of patents, may obtain the same by ad dressing Sues & Co., United States Patent Solicitors, Bee liuilding, Omaha, Nebraska.

When the printer got through witli it it appeared next day and the old soldier was referred to as a "battle-scared veteran." When the soldier read the paper he went up to have it out with the editor. The scribe explained that It was an error of the printer, and he would cor rect it in next day's edition. When the next day's paper appeared to the old soldier as a "bottle-scarred votcran," the printer being responsible as before.

Wc can not get rid of it. Such being tho case we may ns well bo propared, for at no time is it so Impor tant that a woman should bo well dressed ns on n rainy day. Strive against It aa we will, our linlr becomes flabby, and when that Is accompanied by a homely gown, the result is de plorable. These remarks doubtless seem super ficial, but is there one business woman in ten who, when she buys her gowns for the season, thinks of a rainy-day costume? Bicycling and tennis aro slowly but surely affecting cloudy-weather dress, for the knickerbockers which are so useful in these sports serve equally well in keeping one dry on a rainy day. They should be worn under a short walking skirt. Cheviot or ?ergo, of ony color but blue that turns green after being wet a few times is best for the suit. It's a pretty idea to have a tam-o'-shanter designed to wear with tho suit. It should he trimmed with a couple of quillo, which weather cannot spoil. Over the costume should bo worn a long, sleeveless circular coat, or thin tweed or gingham. These coats havo capes and narrow turnover collars. Perhaps one prefers a tight-fitting coat, In which case puff sleeves are worn and jacket fronts. Theso fronts are Intended to conceal a largo rocket on each side. The entire effect is very natty. To return to materials, one cloak was of brown "and white fine checked gingham, lined with changeable taffeta In brown magenta. Another was of tan tweed, thin enough to allow the glow of a pink lining to shine through. A cute idea in this cloak was Hie tiny pockets placed at each front cor ner of the cape. They were entirely concealed by ornamental flaps. Above all things, have a handsome umbrella, and learn to properly furl it.

A girl of seventeen may wear her hair in a rather loose knot nt the back of her head or In a braid tied with a rib bon, if she is small for her ago and looks young. A short circular capo should be trimmed according to the ma terial of which it is composed. A vel vet cape may be trimmed with lace, featheiB, embroidery or passementerie, a cloth enpe may have embroidery, galloon, braid or silk trimming.

I think that a person wno tries lo shoot a burglar in hlB own house is foolish. It Is even more hazardous than running ahead of teams on the street. Suppose one should tumble down. No driver has such a command over his horses that he could stop them soon enough to prevent an accident. It al ways makes me nervous to see some smarty go dodging under the horse's nose. Now, a burglar has nine out of ten advantages over theman being bur glarized. The burglar Is wide-awake, on the alert for danger, has his means of escape perfectly planned, and Is around for anything that may threaten him or cut off his escape. The man being burglarized is usually awakened from a sound sleep, if he awakes at all, and is naturally in a dazed condi tion. This Is proven from the fact that about three-fourths of the men thus aroused, who shoot at burglars hit tome member of tho household instead.

These are set around the sides of the hat, and a long plume falls over the back.

Three very full ostrich tips are set at the other side of the crown and foil toward the front.

Bags of liz ard skin and tan suede, with gold, silver or aluminum ornaments, are especially desirable. Some are fastened securely to the belt and others are held by u metal elacp.

When the war of 1808 bigan Maceo was working In the country ns n peas ant, employed on a farm. Ho Joined, with his brothers, the rebel ranks, and was admitted as a soldier. By ills bravery ho reached tho rank of major general, nnd, after Gomez, was the most Important chief of the last revolution. Two of his more important battles In tho former war were those of Dema jngua, In Holguln, nnd La Galletn, In which ho defeated General Martinez Compos. His campaign at Baracoa was also very brilliant. In 1878 ho bad his greatest triumph at San Ulplano, whero the Spanish column of San Qulntln had to retire before Maceo, leaving 100 dead vn the :.'"W,.-.Ia that action the Span ish were commanded by'Fldel Snnto clldes. the same one who was killed In this war by Maceo's forces at the bat tle of Peralcjo. When the peace of Zanjon was ar ranged, Maceo did not llko to agree to any treaty with Spain. He continued fighting two months more. General Martinez Compos, under date of March 19, 1878, wrote thus to tho prime min ister, Canovas del Castillo: "It is very difficult to arrnngo the peace In Santiago do Cuba, whero Antonio Maceo rules. Ho was a peas ant, and is now a general. His ambi tion is enormous, his courage great, his prestige Immense among his country men. He is a man of high natural tal ent, and for him nothing could be done, notwithstanding the wishes of the Ju ban government. He has convinced Vicente Garcia that to yield is dis honor." Maceo was compelled to leave Cuba, but ho did not sign the pence. He camo to the United States, and after ward went to South America, conspir ing always against Spain. In 1890 l.e tried to renew tho revolution in Cuba, but unsuccessfully. In 1894 he was at tacked at Costa Rica by a group of Spaniards as bo was leaving a theater. He was dangerously wounded, but he killed one of his opponents. In March, 1895, ho landed in Cuba again, followed some days after by Marti and Gomez. His lifo since is well known to Ameri can leaders. At tho battle of Peralejo, by defeating Spain's first generul, ho added a page of glory to his biography, Ioblto, Mai Tlempo, Sac del Indlo, Candclaria, are his most brilliant ac tions after Peralejo, on account of his wonderful two Invasions of Plnar del Rio, coming from Santiago do Cuba the first time, and tho second from Las Villas, as reported by his staff chief, Brig. Mlro. Genera Welyler is now very anxious to catch him passing ths military wall the SpanlBh have established from Mnriel to Majana, but the Cubans aro confident of Maceo's courage and abil ity. Maceo's feelings at present are the same as in 1878. He says that death is better than nny treaty with Spain not based on the absolute independence of the island. He will never accept au tonomy or reforms. He hopes only in tho final success of the war, and with respect to the work of the Cubans in this country to obtain belligerent rights for the patriot army he wrote a few days ago to them: "I am more con fident in the force of arms than in the abilities of diplomacy."
