Now the workmen simply drop a few
small cannon balls into the cleft and
"joggle" the partly loosened block back
and forth, with their crowbars. At every
I movement the balls drop lower until
larger ones can be inserted. By ana Dy
the block rolls out. completely severed.
And then it is rolled away on cannon
balls Instead of wooden rollers, the ad
vantage being that they will roll In every
direction, while a block on wooden roll
ers can only go straight ahead or back.
A LETTER FROM THE EAST
A Flattering Letter From a Former
Portland Clercyman and
Rev. Hugh D. Atchison, formerly pas
tor of Grace Church here, who Is a fine
ly educated musician and organist as well,
is now In charge of St. Luke's at Du
buque, la. Before leaving the city Ellers
piano house accepted his old piano here in
part payment for a new Weber Grand
to be delivered at Dubuque, la. The fine
new piano was duly delivered and in
a letter Just received from Mr. Atchison,
he speaks most highly of the new instru
ment, as follows:
"Dubuque, la., Dec. 12. Our beautiful
new piano, the Weber Grand, number
B, arrived last Thursday, and is a thing
of beauty and a Joy forever. All who
see and hear it are charmed with its
I perfections. This Is a very musical city,
j and we expect to make good use of our
beautiful new piano this Winter in the
way of musicians and little 'at homes.'
Permit me to thank you for the courteous
and honorable way In which you have
treated ua throughout this transaction.
You deserve to prosper. Mrs. Atchison
Joins me in thanks and good wishes.
Yours sincerely, Hugh D. Atchison."
Eilers piano house also sold a fine new
piano to Rev. Thomas McClelland, form
erly of Pacific College, at Forest Grove,
and delivered same direct to Mr. Mc
Clelland's new home at Knox College,
Mr. Ellers has for many years been
prominently connected with leading
piano manufacturers as wholesale traveling-
representative and is personally ac
quainted in nearly every city in the
United States, and hence It Is a simple
matter for them to agree to deliver
pianos at long-distance points.

Not So Common Here as In England,
but Well to Have.
Although "5 o'clock tea" is becoming
a recognized institution In 'many American
homes, as it is In England, the "cozy"
Is not looked upon here as an essential
part of the outfit as it la on the other
side of the Atlantic. The English mis
tress of the teatable considers this cover
of embroidered cloth, velvet or silk as
necessary and lmportantiaisthe tea pot
Itself. It Is claimed that .three brewing of
the stimulating, fragrant leaves 13 not
alone improved by the use of the cozy,
which prevents the precious vapors from
escaping, but it serves to keep the pot
at a high degree of heat, and connois
seurs agree that this popular beverage
should be served very hot, whether the
accompaniment be cream or, following
the Russian fashion, a slice ot lemon and
The most familiar form of cozy adapt
able for various styles of pots, says the
Brooklyn Eagle, is made with two pieces,
each shaped like a half-circle, joined
along the rounding edge, the seam, being
concealed by cording to match or har
monize with -the outside material and lin
ing. This style of cozy may be adjusted
to fit any kind of tea-brewing receptacle.
Cloth, embroidered In gold or sliver and
lined with delicately tinted silk, velvet
and silk combinations, and fancy bro
caded silks and satins, are suitable mate
rials for the construction of this useful
adjunct of the tea table. Particularly
good effects are secured when the cozy
matches the coloring of the tea bet, for
odd cups and saucers are no longer the
fashion on the afernoon tea table, and it
should always harmonize with the general
For tea pots of particular shape, cozies
of special shape are made, a bell form be
ing excellent for the fiat, squatty teapots
that are fashionable Just now. The bell
snaped cozy Is made by joining several
triangular sections, making the circular
base a couple of inches broader than the
teapot It is Intended to cover, so It can
be easily dropped on or removed. An in
terlining of sheet wadding, carefully cut
and fitted In, is placed between the out
side material and the silk lining. If the
outter fabric Is lined before combining
with the wadding and silk, the cozy will
be better shaped and retain Its form a
longer time. Properly made of attrac
tive material, the cozy is an artistic ac
cessory for the modern tea table, with
its dainty appointments.
Virginia Is experimenting with the dis
pensary system of selling liquor, on ac
count of the state and town. Franklin
having been selected for the experiment.
The commonwealth gets one-fourth of
the profits and the town, the remainder.
Under this system the liquor Is sold In
original packages and must not be con
sumed on the premises.

to pray. Goldsmith, 'The Deserted Village."
