It Is a common sight to seo several
men delivering barrels and storing
them In Hie cellar of a building, the
usual method being to allow the barrel

Of course, the barrel could not be al

A Little Lesson
In Patriotism
Let our object bo our country, our
whole country, and nothing but our
country." Daniel Webster.
Clen. Wlntleld Scott has become 10
well known ns n very old man, prob
ably on account of his portrait having
been taken when
bo bad reached an
advanced nge, and
that most of us
seem to forget Unit
It was In youth
rather than In his
old ngo that ho per
formed thoso ser
vices for his coun
try which distin
guished him above
bis fellow-soldiers.
Scott was still a
young man when lu
tho war of 1812 he directed at Queens
town, on tbo Niagara Itlvcr, a series
of engagements in which wero blend
ed, according to one historian, the most
perfect plan of arrangements, the most
undaunted courage, the most disas
trous defeat and the most triumphant
The battle of Lundy's Lane brought
Scott Into action again. Although he
was wounded early In the engagement,
he fought on, gallantly charging the
enemy as they advanced.
War after war followed In the ca
reer of the soldier until Anally tho
Mexican war brought to him bis lat
est glory. It was ono of the most plc
turcsquo campaigns of history, daring
lu conception nnd excittlon.
Despite his years, lien, Scott served
In the Civil War until ho was no long
er able to bear tho hardships of the
camp and tho field. Fow men cau
show such n long record of service for
their country ns can he. Ho served
from 1812 until November, 1801.

Appnratus for Firemen.
Few persons, except the small boy
who Is going to be one when be gets
old enough, realize the many dangers
firemen face every day of tlielr lives,
but statistics prove that only a very
small number die a natural death a
falling wall or other part of a burn
ing building generally carrying death
to some brave fire fighter after he baa
spent the greater part of bis life on
duty. Just think how often a fire
man Is called upon to enter a build
ing full of dense smoke, to rescue
some person who has already been
overcome, and the wonder Is that he
Is not supplied with some protection
for his own life. There does not seem
to be any reason why be should not
for Instance, wear an apparatus like
the one shown In the Illustration. He
could then with absolute safety to
himself enter any burning building,
wlth an added chanco of saving any
lives that mlcht be endancered. The
upper portion Is made In the form of
a hood or mask of alr-tlght and fire
proof fabric, to be placed over the
head of the wearer, with glass clos
ures for openings for the eyes. There
Is also n cap opposite the mouth, which
closes against air from without, but
opens for the discharge of exhaled air
which has been breathed. Reservoirs
which contain compressed nlr or oxy
gen for sustaining life are attached
to the back of the wearer by straps,
and connected by a tube to the back 0
the hood, with valves for regulating
the supply. The compressed air can
thus be readily supplied from the res
ervolrs to the Interior of tho hood, to
be breathed by the wearer. After en

Ancient Chairs.
Seats more or less resembllug stools
that Is, seats without backs were In
general use among nations possessing
a certain degree of clvlllrtitioii In pre
historic Umcs. What those were like
In the early historic period we know
from an examination of Egyptian
monuments, from a study of (Jreek
vases or from Etrurian or Itoman an
tiquities that are stored In European
museums. The Egyptian deities ore
seated generally on granite blocks, the
backs of which are raised a few Inches
only, giving a distant resemblance to
a chair. That the Egyptians had seats
more comfortable for domestic use Is
possible, but we have every reason to
suppose, nltiiough they iossessed a
high degree of civilization, that their
Idea of homo comforts was not that of
modern times.
The common people probably sat.on
blocks of stone or wood or SDrawled
about on the ground with some sort
of carpet that also served for a boil.

Italy before tho arrival of tbo Romans,
