-The baths are the great places of
rendezvous for the Arab women, who
spend an afternoon there frequently

and they certainly deserve this much of
social intercourse. They are seen with
their children m the streets going to
the bath, accompanied by a gorgeous
nefrress carrying a bronze vessel niied
with recessarv articles, and other bas
kets and bundles containing: a complete
change of linen, also several strings oi
orange blossoms. Orange-flower water
is not to be foreotten, for it enters ex
tensively into their luxuries as a drink
with their meals and as a perfume. For
the latter purpose a bottle of brass, sil
ver, or gold, with long neck and a pepper-box
termination, is used, with
which they sprinkle guests at home and
fnend3 at the bath as well as them
selves. The baths, again, "take in
washing,'1 especially of h?-vy woollen
burnooses, haiks, blankets, etc., which
the attendants and the moutcho (a
youns boy-servant, whose name is evi
dently of Spanish origin) wash with
their feet aad plenty of soap and water
on the pavement in the hot room. Thes
articles are nuns:, with the bath towels
and other linen, to dry on the terraces.
To make a study under drippings of
such an entire laundry may be looked
upon as a feat, aside from the fact that
the moutcho seemed afraid to leave me
within reach of such valuable wet lin
en. With sulphur fumigations the yel
low burnooses, arranged like tents over
"""""the smoke, are bleached. This opera
' tion is equal to a thousand matches

artist's nose. The bath attendants are
apparently wonderfully constituted to
avoid rheumatism and pneumonia;
they go in and out of the heated room
for "hours tosether with only a towel
round their loins, but they do catch

An Artist's Vocabulary.

tendency to cultivate a special parlance

the richer this vocabulary becomes the
more indefinite are its terms. It you
listen to a group of students in an art
erallery you are apt to hear some such
expressions as these: "Isn't that a stun

When the Iyjrd me sorrow semi.
For the last twenty years David Jen
nings, Oneida, has been trying to solve
perpetual motion. He has had his
model in operation for several days in
the Evans House. Tho workings of
the machine have been witnessed oy n
least a thousand people, representing '
points as far distant as Philadelphia,
K'cw York, Boston, and Chicago. At
tho time the Herald's reporter and art
ist visited Mr. Jennings at his model
room and work-shop he said he had
numerous oilers of fabulous sums for
xn Interest in his Invention.
In the centre of the room stands tho
iinf ty-seventh model that Mr. Jen
nings has experimented upon. Tho in
ventor was not loath to allowau exam
ination of the machine, and he proceed
ed to fct his motor in motion.
The machine is suspended in a wood-
n liiiiise aiiont six feet long, z xeei
wide, and 7 feet high, and is in the form
of an endless chain, which runs in the
tijniro of a triangle over three pulleys.

over which tho chain runs. It is at
tached to a small shaft, which is geared
to a llvwhccl about three feet in cir
cumference, and which, Mr. Jennings
said, could be made to make about l.OW
revolutions a minute.
The links of the chain are so made
with automatic-woiklng hooks that as
they move over the wheel at the top
and becin to descend the hooks catch
up every other link and make a double
hain of It. 1 he links nrc held In place
until each one begins to turn to go up,
when the hook drops out and the chain
moves by single links. Mr. Jennings

claimed that the machine now on ox
hibition Is about one-tenth horse power.
To start the motor Mr. Jennings re
moved a small pin located oa an upper
corner of the frame, and apparently the
chain started off on Its triansular tour
without any power, and craduallv
gained momentum. Mr. Jennings
stepped to the opposite side of the
frame and regulated the motion with a
small brake.
"It has been tiveutv-one years since
I built my first model to try and solve
the perpetual motion problem," said
Mr. Jennings, "and since that time I
have spent more than f 10,000 ia my
experiments. I have built ninety -seven
models and experimented onmoretnaa
sixty-different principles."

A Vapor Hath on the Frontier. I
In 1770 I started from Cottistoek 6
prospecting expedition. The first
day we traveled ah-uil thirty miles and!
camped on tlte Carson ltivcr below
Fort Churchill. It was my luck to
have been mounted on a bucking
mustang. I had been pitched over his

was sore from tho crown of my head
to the soles of my feet. I feared I
would not bo able to mount my mus-
ang the next morning. I therefore
letermined to drive tho pain out of my
body by means of a hot bath. I took a
shovel anil leveled a spnee or ground
on the bank of the river about six feet
long and three, feet wide. 1 then
gathered sonio dry cottonwood and
willow poles, brush, and such other
fuel as I could and built a fire on the
charred patch of ground. When the
fire had burned down and tho bed of
coals left had begun to die out, I raked
all off down to the ground. Ithendug

three inches, throwing out all cobble
stones and sticks, when I leveled it all

blankets. I then covered mvself with
the other blanket, tucking in bothhead
and heels. A hotter bath I never ex
perienced. A sort of dry vapor
poured up out ot the lrrouml that al
most cooked mo. It poured tip through
the blanket in a thousand streams
and had a strong flavor of mother
earth. I stood the heat an hour or
two, then was obliged to remove to
cooler quarters, w hen 1 cooled down by
degrees In order not to take cold. The
next morning I awoke without a single
pain or ache and as "limber as an eel."
Although no moisture was perceptible
in the ground on which 1 built my tire,
yet a certain degree of moisture seemed
to have come Into it when 1 raked away
the nre and began stirring up the son.
We were ont in the mountain about
a month. While in Humboldt range
oue of my party had an attack of
mountaln-fevcr. I made a big sage
brush fire on the little flat In which we
were camped and gavn him one of my
baths. He howled like a coyote about
the heat. He swore he was being
cooked alive and I had hard work to
keep him under the blankets for an
hour. He would have been ontin spite
of me had I not handed our guide, a
wild raw Indian, a shotgun and told
him to shoot the man if be got up. The
patient knew that the Indian was just
big enough fool to shoot, and so was
obliged to confine himself to groans
and howls until I toot the gun away
from the Indian and relieved him of
bis watch. The Indian was sulky the
remainder of the evening, as he did
not like Tom and hoped to have been
allowed to shoot, lorn never had the
least sign of mountain-fever during the
remainder of the trip, and always
after the experience of that eveniug
was ready to take his turn ai uxking,
getting wood, or hunting horses.

were reported sometime since in your

which may prove interesting to some
of your readers: "I was walking across
a very boggy marsn, wnere mere was
a eood deal of water, and was stumb
ling along, not with my former youth
ful agility, when I came near stepping
on a snake inr coil, what is called a
cotton-mouthed moccasin,' whose bite
is not fatal but somewhat poisonous.
There being no stick at hand to kill
him, I stepped back and shot him, cut
ting him not quite, but nearly in two,
and exposing his 'innards, as the ne
groes say. My man Crcsar exclaimed,
Massa, he got another snake in him!'
and so he had one nearly as lon
as himself. I pulled the swallowed
snake out and held him by the tail
alongside the other. The swallow cr was
about thirty inches long and very thick,
and the swallowed one and a half inch
es shorter, only that the latter's head
and neck were doubled so as to be forc
ed into the other. Did you ever know
of one snake eating another? They say
that dog will not eat dog, but it seems
that a snake will perform that opera
tion on another snake." Lotulon Field.
The shoot ing of a big dog by a French
custom house officer in tho North of
France the other day has given rise to
some queer dog stories in the French
papers. The officer shot tho dog be
cause he was suspiciously fat. The post
mortem examination revealed the fact
that the dog wore a leather coat made
to look like his own skin, and skilfully
fastened at the shoulder and haunches
in such a way as to completely conceal
the ends of the hair. In this coat the
dog carried several hundred cigars.

several years before the young lady
school teacher now in our camp came
there since the miners in that section
had seen a white woman. She went
from Boston out to Albuqnerque to

mountains on a pleasure excursion a
year ago last summer, and ou the trip
visited our camp for two or three days.
When the miners found out she was
there they came in from every direc

desire to live there. The camp grew

about one hundred miners subscribed

this way until recently, when there
was in the camp enough children to
organize the school under the Terri
