yard in the rear of his residence, j
Fourteen innocent, guiless looking
fifteon-cent gilt-framed minors,
each three and three-fourths by
four and three-fourths inches,
were arranged upon a frame
propped up like an artist's easel
a iu.oear.ng a sinic.ng rcscinoiance j
racing the easel v. as the frag -
mcut of what was once a barn !
door, also propped up and parti' (
covered with a worn and faded i
sheet oi zinc that bore the unmis
takable evidence of having been
burned through in several places.
It was but the work of a minute
to converge the forty mirrors upon I
a spa.ee three and three-fourths
inclics by five and three-fourths
inches upon the bara.door,and the
revelations began. As each mir
ror cast its quota, of sunlight upon
the common store, the parallelo
gram of light grew whiter and
more dazzling, until at last it look
ed like a patch of electric light.
But little patience was required lo
await results. In less than thirty
.econds a thin, curling puff of
smoke gave evidence of the pro
gress of the experiment. Tn a
moment the board was bursting
out in flames. The focus was then
shifted upon the zinc. In -a few
minutes it began lo turn color;
then shrink as if anxious togetaway
where it -was cooler, and then in
Jess than three minutes the entire
surface covered by the focus was
literally melting, drop, by drop.
To melt zinc requires a tempera
ture of over TOO degrees Fahren
heit. The most wondeiful feature
about the whole thing is the bril
liancy of the light. Each mirror
adds not only heat but light. The
. iforty minors produce a light more
brilliant than an ordinary electric
light. A hand held so as to inter
cept the focus becomes as white as
driven snow. A white handker
chief defies ordinary sight and con
veys but an impression of beauti-
ful, impossible whiteness. It is
as hard to look at as the sun it
self. The possibilities of Mr. Calvcr's
invention are boundless. "With a
combined square surface of twenty
' feet of mirrors, lead melts quicker
than thought, wood bursts into
flame and is gone into ashes, and
iron melts in less than twenty
minutes. Each mirror adds so
much to the heat and light, and
.Mr. Calver has found by actual
experiment that a comparatively
small collection of mirrors each
one foot square will melt all known
metals in a .very few moments,
lie has produced over 4,000 de
grees of heat with his mirrors.
By calculation it is shown that
1,000 mirrors, each a foot square
will melt iron and steel with the
'rapidity almost of thought.

Chailcs Dickens once said that
the typical American would hesi
tate about entering heaven unless
assured that he. could go farther
west. '-CJoing west" is still the po-

enterprising and adventurous and
the farther west you go the greater
seems to be its power. Th' men
who lead the advance of ilie anny
of civilization on the frontier skir
mish line, do not come from the
rear. They are always the scouts
and pickets. The people of the
six-wceks-old town do not como
from the east. As a rule they are
from the one-year-old ami two-year-old
towns a little farther
back. Most of the men 1 meet in
the Yellowstone country are from
eastern Dakota or the Black Rill
region, or from western Minnesota.
"When -asked why they left homes j
so recently made in a new country,
their reply was invariably thai
they wanted to get farther west.
