GAUGES IMPURITY IN AIR.
Clevr Swiss Inventor Originates In
strument Which Tells Health
iful&tss of Atmosphere.
'A clever Swiss inventor ! has
originated an instrument which
tells the exact condition of the air
in a room that is, its degree ol
impurity, according to the New
York Herald. It ia generally be
lieved that if the air in a room is
bad it will be sufficiently notice:
able to the persons in the room
without the aid of any instrument.
But if one stops to remember how
quickly the suffocating odors in a
crowded room are perceived by a
person entering fronthe pure air
outside she will see that this state
of things might; be remedied by
this new invention. The instru
ment consists of an air-tight glass
receptacle in which is a red fluid.
A bent glass tube is inserted in
this and up this tube the fluid runs,
to drop at the rate of two drops a
minute on to a cord which is
stretched by a weight. This fluid
possesses the property of chang
ing 'color when submitted to the
action of carbonic acid gas. The
more of this gas there is in the
oom the more pronounced the
hange in the color of the fluid.
With this fact in mind the prin
r-iple on which the indicator works
s easily understood. The drops
fluid as they fall on the string
hange it according to the condi
ion of the atmosphere. Should
he atmosphere be pure the string
mains red all the way down.
:iould it be slightly tainted the
ip of the string appears white
,'he fouler the air the longer the
lute markson the string. By the
ide of the string runs an.indica
r, graded to show the exact con
ition of the air.. The highest
oint on the scale marks "pure,'-'
:e next "passably: pure," then
iad," and from there down to
ery bad' and "extremely bad."
lie instrument has been thor
aghlv tested and found to work

THORN TREES FOR LAWN.
Have Several Virtue to Recommend
Them aa Ornaments Alao Suit
able for Hedges.
More than 30 years ago an em
inent botanist called attention
to the beauty of our native thorn
trees and their suitability for
hedges and for lawn ornaments.
Their hardiness and graceful
shapes, thick foliage and brilliant
fruit clusters all recommend them,
while the ability to flourish un
der u severe pruning is an added
virtue in the eyes of those who de
sire formal shapes. Yet up to the
present time, says a writer! in
c ountry' Life in America, our
i horn trees remain the ornaments,
not of private grounds, but of way
sides and pastures; while the only
pruners to exercise their skill
upon them are' the cattle, which
eagerly, browse upon the young
shoots. Many a pasture contains
. shrubs fitted to grace a public
park and worthy of considerable
pilgrimage on the part of lovers of
the beautiful. , '
CEMETERY GAG SOLD FARM
D Pag County, HL, Kan Adopts a
Unique Method of Selling Land
"There are many wayB of bring
ing a hesitating buyer op to the
mark," said Lawyer John E. Ke-
hoe, in the Chicago Daily NewB,
"but the way my friend and client,
Tom Corrigan, of Du Page county,
111., managed to sell his farm was
about as unique as any.
"Tom was tired of farming in
that particular section. He want
ed to sell and get out, and his
neighbor, Silas Barker, . whose
farm lay across the road from him,
wanted just as badly to buy and
get in. But Silas was a great hand
at a bargain, and he kept waiting
for Tom to come down to a price
that would please him. This Tom
was not inclined to do. The pair
occasionally met and casually re
ferred to the matter, one trying to
conceal that he was anxious to sell
and the other that he was burning
to buy, but they never seemed to
come any nearer an agreement.
" 'Well, Mr." Barker,' said Tom,
at length, 'I think I've a good buy
er in view now for thi farm of
mine. Still, you being a neighbor,
I'm willing to give you the prefer
" 'What'i your price to-day?'
" 'It's 500 more thn it was last
time,' replied Tom.
" 'I guess not,' said Barker.
"Next day Silas saw Tom Bar
ker conducting a Roman Catholic
priest over the farm as if showing
him its various points and advan
tages. On inquiry he got a whis
per from a friend of Tom's that
the latter was negotiating with
Father Madigan, who wanted the
place for a cemetery.
"For a cemetery! Right at his
door, too! A cemetery, with
hearses and carriages full of
mourners, unloading almost at his
very threshold every ' day, and
bristling rows of tombstones to
look out upon every night. This
would be a sad upset to his cher
ished dream of amalgamating the
two farms and owning one of the
finest pieces of land in Du , Page
"Very soon he sought out Tom
Corrigan. 'Is it true that you're
going to sell your farm to t
" 'That's my own business, Mr.
Barker,' said Tom.
" 'And is it true that it's going
to be made into a cemetery?.
" 'Faith, then, 'tis little I know
or care what the buyer intends to
make of it, so long as I get a good
price for it.'
-" 'Tom i Corriean. what's the
price of vour. farm to-day?' "
" 'It's 1,000 more than it was
yesterday,' answered Tom.
"'Well, then,' said Barker, 'I'll
take it at that price.'
"And he took it. Now, the priest
had no notion of booming Corri-
gan's real estate with his innocent
visit, so he was angry. But he was
not so thoroughly disgusted as
was Silas Barker when the latter
discovered the trick by which Cor
rigan had got his own price for his

One of the most curious examples
of patient training is an exhibit by
