Theater, a vcncrablo playhouse, gnvo
nn origin to tho phrase. The celling
or dome wna painted In representation
of tho sky. Tho nrtlst placed In this
celestial netting numerous cuplds nnd
clouds. The gallery of the theater wns
built Just bciow this celling, nnd to
persons seated below the occupants of
the nppcr tier looked to be part of tho

ELECTRIC PLANT FOR PEAT.
Prodnct of Jtnam DUIntrcrraled, but

An electric process for the treatment
of pent has lately been adopted In Eng
land nt the Johnston & Phillips works.
The peat is transformed Into a bard
combustible, which Is well ndnpted for
uso under boilers. Tho operation Is
said to Inst two nnd a half hours, nnd
tbo material costs less than ordinary
conL Tho combustible which Is thus
produced has a high calorific vnlno nnd
gives scarcely nny smoke.
A plnnt on a largo scnlo Is to be In
stalled In Ireland nnd if successful It
will be nn Important movo In tho direc
tion of utilizing pent ns fuel under tbo
best conditions. In tbo present pro
cess the peat ns It comes from tho boga
Is placed In cylinders, which rovolvo
nt a high speed, whllo a set of nlr fans
la used to drive oft the water, which
forms nbout SO per cent of the totaL
A set or electrodes is placed In tho
cylinders nnd connected with a
dynamo, Tbo circuit is completed
through tho mass of the peat between
tho electrodes. Tho rcslstanco which
the pent offers to tho current causes a
considerable heat nnd the latter breaks
up tho peat nnd pulverizes It. but with
out causing It to lose nny of Its prop
erties. In ordor to incrense tho conductivity
of somo kinds of pent they ndd cer
tain chemical products. After thin
process tho jent Is trented by a set of
knendlng rollers, which gtvo it a plastic
consistency so na to cnnblo It to tnko
nny desired form. From hero It pnssen
to an automatic press which forms It
Into briquettes. It la then ready for
uso nnd Is taken to tho storeroom.
It Is to bo remarked thnt nlthough
tho passage of tho current through tho
peat gives rise to n heating effect tho
results obtained in this way are qulto
different from thoso which nnothcr
method of heating would produce. By
flro heat tho particles of the pent loso
their different constituent matters,
while tbo electric heating causes thoni
to disintegrate, thus freeing their cel
lular material nnd distributing it
throughout tho entire mass of the pent.
Thus nil tho particles becomo ndap'ed
To obtain a harder material the d't
npgrcgnted pent Is given a larger
treatment with the current Tho nlr U
kept out by n tight cover, and tho mass
Is then treated with nn adhesive solu
tion ao na to uulto ttio particles. Tho
exicrlmcnts have been mado with the
process on n largo senlo nnd nt a groat'
expense, nnd It Is said to hnvo been
greatly Improved in the details nnd can
now bo npplled commercially.
Henry had been bo continuously nnd
persistently naughty that, says tho
New York World, his nunt, who had
chnrgo of him lu ids mother's nbsenco,
did not know what to do with him. In
despair sho said, weakly :
"If you will not behave-, I shall put
you In ono of grandpapa's heii-coops."
"Well," said Henry, aturtllly, "tieforo

will not Iny nny eggs."
