The Into of Vcnlco has been celebrat
ed for many centuries. It wns made
originally by nuns within tho walls
of convents for ecclesiastical garments.
Then, with tho fall of tho Venetian
republic, the convents were closed and
the Inco Industry ceased to exist for
an entire century.
In 1870 tho Princess Margherlta, aft-
erward queen of Italy, took measures
to rovivo It, especially ns n means of
providing employment for Venetian
womon. At present there nro several
schools, subsidized by tlio government,
In which tho nrt Is taught.

An elaborate series of descriptions of
mlddlo western road conditions Is con
tnlned In Charles Cleaver's "History of
Chicago From 18.12 to 1802, Illustrating
the Dllllcultlcs of tho Routa From Now

Chicago In 18.13, Cleaver tells us

Inter I got Into n wagon to go about
ono nnd n half miles northwest. It was
with the greatest dllllculty that two
good horsi'H could pull tho empty wag
on through tho two feet of mud and
water across tho prnlrlo. A
year or two later I saw ninny teams
stuck fast In tho streets of tho vlllago.
"I remember oueo n stageconch got
in I red In Clark street opposite the
Hheriiiau HoiiKO, where It remained
several days, with a board driven Into
the mud bearing this Inscription, 'No

In the mud In tho middle of Itnndolph
street, who wns evidently In need of
help, ns every time she moved she snnk

from tho country offered to help her,
which had such nn effect upon her

she drew her feet out minus her uhovri."

WOODS THAT SINK.
Thar Are Many Varieties That Will
Not Float In Water.
That wood floats Is such a common-
placo fact In our lives that wo hardly
give It any thought If wo lived In
tropical climates wo would lenrn to
distinguish between woods Hint float
and woods that do not float. Many of
tlio woods of Mexico and South Amer
ica are so heavy oven when porfectly
dry that they will sink In water, nota
bly lignum vltac, which is tho wood
commonly used for bowling balls.
Among our common natlvo woods
there nro several that will not float
when green. The cypress of Uio south
Is often girdled a year before It Is cut
so that It will dlo and dry whllo stand
Ing, thus making It possible to float tho
logs to tlio mllL
Tho reason why somo woods float Is
not because tho substance of which
they nro mndo Is lighter than wntcr,
but becnuse the cavities In tho cells
nro so large that tho air In them buoys
up tlio wood. Tho material (cellulose)
which composes tlio greater part of Uio
cell wall Is heavier than water, so that
If tho nlr In Uio cells Is replaced by wa
ter tho wood will sink. This Is just
what happens to wood which has been

It Is Uio targe water content of the
henrtwood of freshly felled oaks nnd
hickories nnd of tho sapwood of cer
tain conifers Uint causes theso woods
to sink, for when dry they will float.
Lignum vltno and other heavy trop
ical woods, even when dry, sink bo-
causo most of Uio cell cavities nro bo

It le Always In Demand and Add to
a Man's Worth.
Tho demand for reliability novcr
ceases. If you buy a piece or maciiin-
ery you want It to bo dependable.
When you purchaso new clothes you
desire them to bo durable. If you elect

trustworthy. When you take on nu em
ployee you Inquire whether he can lie
relied on, as to his word, his work, his
loyalty. It Is so In nil the relations of
life. While there Is much unreliability,
you never hear of anybody seeking It
or placing a premium upon It
