FERS FROM TELE­ GRAPH LINE.— Although an ocean cable is in fact a telegraph line, it is so differently construct­ ed that the rules for working land lines are almost entirely dis­ similar. With the first long cables, great difficulties were encounter­ ed in sending through them a current o f electricity o f sufficient pow e r to record the messages rapidly. The methods for over­ com ing these difficulties, and in use at present, are described as follow s : Keys which, when depressed, transmit positive and negative currents, are em p loyed at the sending station in connection with the regulation battery. The current o f the battery does not pass directly into the cable, but into a condenser, which passes It Into the submarine line. This greatly increases the force o f the current used and serves to cut off interfering ground currents. The instrument first employed In receiving cablegrams was a reflecting galvanometer. Upon the magnet o f this Instrument Is carried a small curved mirror. A lamp Is placed before the mir­ ror and behind a screen In which there Is a vertical slit. Flashes o f light moving across this silt as the needles moved from left to right, Indicated to the trained eyes o f the operator the letters In the message being trans­ mitted. But this method o f recording messages was found to tax the eyesight o f the operator severe­ ly, a few years’ work often ren­ dering them almost, if not total­ ly blind. Recognizing the fact that there must be something wrong with such a system. In­ ventors set about repairing the defect, which resulted In perfect­ ing the syphon galvanometer, which has all but superseded all other receiving devices. No Food in Seventy Hours. N o t a bite o f food for 70 hours was the terrible experience o f a native w h o was admitted to the Krugersdorp hospital (South A frica). The man had been severely burned about the legs in a fire in an outlying village, and with the other Injured persons had been placed on a passing freig h t train to be taken to the nearest hos­ pital. The man pulled a tarpaulin over him self, and so, when the others were removed, he was overlooked. The train arrived at K rugersdorp during a Saturday evening, and the truck was shunted into the station yard. T h e w h o le o f Sunday and M onday the native remained without food or wa­ ter, under the tarpaulin, and he was only discovered on Tuesday afternoon when a checker went his rounds. Rail­ way men w ere on the point o f placing m ealies on the truck when they no­ ticed a m ovement under the sail, and the native, sem iconscious and partial­ ly demented, was found unable to move much. On close examination it was found that his low e r limbs were In a terrible state, and he was re­ m o ved to the hospital. Japanese Make Paper Clothes. U n d erclothing m ade o f finely crisped or grained paper is m anufactured in Japan. A fter the paper has been cut to a pattern the different parts ore sewn together and hemmed, and the places w h ere the buttonholes are to be form e d are strengthened with cal­ ico or linen. The paper Is very strong and at the 6ame tim e very flexible. A fter a garment has been worn a few hours it w ill Interfere with the perspir­ ation o f the body no m ore than do gar­ ments made o f cotton fabric. The paper is not sized, nor Is it impermea­ ble. A fter becom ing w e t the paper Is difficult to tear. When an endeavor Is made to tear It by hand it presents almost as much resistance as the thin skin for making gloves. Certainly No Harm.

I have been disheartened by the fact that I could not get work such as I de- ! serve. I do not like carpentry, and I can speak five languages.

Many a common dish is changed into a most tasty one by tne addition o f a few marshmallows. Drop in the cut-up marshmal­ lows while heating the icing for the ca k e ; they will melt entirely if fresh and make most delicious frosting. T o make pud­ ding sauces melt them in > a little grape juice If the sauce Is to be served with a fig or i plum pudding, a little vanilla If used with prune or date or with ginger­ bread. Cream pie, chocolate pie or custard is m ade quite elegant by decorating the top with quartered or w h ole marsh­ m a llows just before putting on the meringue. An apple pie m ade o f thickened apple sauce covered with marshmal­ lows Instead o f a meringue Is both delicious and pleasing to the eye. The pie should be set In the oven to puff and brown the mallows before serving, j Fudge, cream candy and boiled Icing stay moist longer and are cream­ ier If marshmallows are added to them. In any candy they may be dropped In and stirred until dissolved while the candy is cooking. Delightful marguerites are m ade by putting a marshmallow, dented In the center, w h ere a hit o f butter, a nut or a bit o f dried fruit may be p la c e d ,! all on a round cracker, browned In the oven. W hen serving children cocoa, a m arshmallow pleases them better than cream for a garnish to the cup of cocoa or chocolate. A boiled custard Is Improved by adding a handful o f marshm allows to the custard when cooking. Gingerbread cut In squares while hot with a fork, the pieces broken open and a marshmallow placed sand­ wich fashion In each, then set In the oven to m e lt served with whipped cream and a enp o f tea, makes a most delectable cake fo r an afternoon tea. Dates and prunes stuffed with marshmallows add variety. Mixed with various fruits, a bit o f salted dressing and whipped cream, make? a salad hard to equal fo r delicious- nett. GOOD THINGS FOR STATE OCCA- SION3. Celery to be used fo r the table, should be thoroughly chilled. By add­ ing a slice o f lemon or a dash o f vinegar to the water, the celery Is kept white and made crisp. Apple and Cheese Salad.— W ipe and pare apples and scoop out 24 balls, using a French vegetable cutter. • Mar­ inate with French dressing and chill thoroughly. Mash a cream cheese, and add a tablespoonful o f chopped pl- mentoes, and three-fourths o f a tea­ spoonful o f salt. Shape Into 12 balls the sam e size as the apple balls and roll In finely chopped parsley. A r ­ range a bed o f crisp heart leaves of lettuce, sprinkle over It the celery cut In fine strips an Inch and a half In length. Arrange the balls on the let­ tuce and serve with French dress­ ing. Turnip Cones.— W ash and pare tur­ nips and cut In cone or cube shape, us­ ing a vegetable cu tter; there should be three cupfuls. Put them Into a cas­ serole, add a half teaspoonful o f s a lt one and a half teaspoonfuls of sugar, one-fourth o f a cupful o f sweet fat, a dash o f pepper, and a half cup­ ful o f boiling water. Cover and boll until the turnips are tender, about an hour and a half. Brown Giblet Gravy.— P o u r o ff all the liquid In the pan In which the tur­ key has been roasted. From the liquid skim off six tablespoonfuls o f fat and return it to the roasting pan. add six tablespoonfuls o f flour and stir until well blended, then cook until well browned. Pour on gradually, w h ile stirring constantly, three cup­ fuls o f stock. If you have none, use any vegetable w a ter that vegetables have been cooked In, such as potato water, stir and cook until smooth, sea­ son and strain. T o obtain stock cov­ er the giblets, neck and wing tips with five cupfuls o f cold w a ter and let sim­ m er until reduced to three cupfuls. The giblets are finely chopped and T T O W D I S A S T E R TO VT TU R KS IS FORE­ TOLD BY “ SHINING STONE” — Constantinople, fam ous city of mosques and minarets. Is the subject o f many prophecies. It has been the battleground of Christian and Mohammedan since the twelfth century. None o f the prophecies respecting the expulsion of the Turk from Eu­ ropean soil is more remarkable than that o f the “ shining stone\ In the fam ous “apostate cathe­ dral” now the m osque o f Santa Sophia. Years ago there was brought to the city of the sultan a great slab of luminous marble, white and translucent. Specimens of this stone are exceedingly rare, and no other fragment as large as the shining stone Is known to exist. It was Installed In the west side o f the great gallery of the historic mosque o f Santa Sophia. W h at first Invested the fa ­ mous stone with supernatural qualities is not known. The Per­ sians regarded it with awe, and upon its installation in the Con­ stantinople mosque it was de­ clared to be the m ystic dial wherein the fate o f Islam should be reflected. Its peculiar vitreous quality makes it a ready reflector of light rays. During the hours of daylight It emits a particularly brilliant light. These rays are considered Allah's assurance to the faithful that all continues well in the empire o f the true believers. W hen Islam has ex­ perienced political or religious triumphs In the past, according to the guardians of the shining stone, the brilliancy o f the mar­ ble slab was such as to serious­ ly discomfit human eyes. W hen disaster — permanent and all-embracing — threatens the Turkish empire, according to the prophecy that accom ­ panied the stone out o f the mys­ tic Orient and Into Europe, the stone will no longer reflect light. It will be no longer luminous and translucent, but clouded and opaque. T o nint u..°* the shln- lug stone was undergoing a transform ation was In times past to Incur the risk o f a speedy and violent death. Origin o f Life on Planets. The many speculations that have been published concerning the origin of life on the earth and on any other bodies In the unlvarse where It may possibly exist usually assume th a t in some way or other, “ life germs” are transported across the gulfs o f space from one planet to another. Thus it has been suggested that life may have been brought to the earth In meteors. One o f the most recent suggestions Is that minute “ life germs” may escape from the atmosphere o f a planet In which life exists, Just as molecules of the atmospheric gases are believed to escape from our terrestrial atmosphere, and may be driven by llght-pressure to some world where physical conditions have becom e suitable to support life. W hile there Is nothing essentially ab­ surd In these hypotheses. It Is not clear why their authors should take it for granted that life cannot originate de novo on a cooling plan e t— Scientific American. The No-Breakfast Plan. The breakfast-eating habit often cre­ ates an abnormal stom achic condition, says Physical Culture Magazine. If one is in perfect health, and arises with a keen appetite for breakfast there will be no occasion for omittlbg the meal. There are, however, but few In perfect health, and the omission of breakfast gives the stomach a chance to adjust itself. It has an opportunity to develop a keen appetite for the par­ ticular character o f nourishment most needed by the body at that time. The no-breakfast plan Is a splendid 'means o f properly adjusting one’s appetite, both as to quantity and character o f food. Easily Arranged. “But w h y are you so agitated and distressed?

A resourceful form e r found a new way to use dynam ite and saved a near­ ly matured crop o f potatoes In a oadly flooded field, says the Scientific Am eri­ can. Usually heavy rains filled all the neighborhood drains and ditches; in his em ergency the ow n er put down a number o f holes eight to twelve feet deep with a post auger and exploded a charge o f dynamite In the bottom o f each. This opened up passages into the sandy sub-soli, through which the surplus water drained rapidly, and the crop was saved, although many nearby crops were ruined by the excess c f n i t e r standing In the fields.
