The Care of Oil Stoves.
While the oil stove is a great con
venience for earlv fall and spring and
for coul days, during the season when
the heaters are not iu use, it is also
veiy ap' become a nuisance. The
odor from oil is far from agreeable,
and thesu stoves have a provoking
trick of "working up" the wick as
they burn, so that when left burning
with the flame at the proper height
thev are cften foend on returning to
the room to be smoking bidly. These
lire faults of the oil stove, and troub
lesome faults thev are. The only
wav to obtain satisfaction from such a
stove is to keep it scrupulously clean,
and then to watch it when in oe.
From Writers From
wiion tile stove is out away for the
summer all the oil should be emptied
and the tank wiped out. The wick
and burner shoud be removed, boiled
in strong soapBuds or in soila water,
theu dried, wrapped and put away.
Over the stove itself a strong paper
bag should be drawn to keep out the
dust. The objection to taking the
stove apart and putting K away is
that a cool day may come when a
little heat would bo convenient, and
the proEpect of putting together and
filling it for a few hoars is not at
tractive. However, if the stove
kent full during the months when
in uohlnm in use the wick become
clogged with oil, and when lighted i
the fall the odor is unbearable
is only when such a stove ia per
fectly clean that heat without smoke
or odor can be obtained. "Household

FROM SUPT. NOTSON.
Among the schools of Minneapolis
which I have visited, none interested
me more than the Seward grade school.
The building, built around a court,
occupies the greater part of a double
block. It is a two-story buildiug,
with an ample basement. It furnished
accommodations for over 1300 pupils.
The halls are spacious, and the stairs
are of very easy grade. Toilet rooms
are on each floor, so tt at the going up
and down stairs is reduced to a mini
mum. There is a teachers' rest room
on each floor. There is also a room,
equipped with a long table, a gas
range and some cooking ntens'ls,
where the teachers may prepare and"
eat their lunch if they choose. A
well equipped room is provided for
the use of the medical inspection
work. The school rooms are well
furnished, steam healed and well
In the basement are the boiler
rooms, the fans for ventilating the
building, tbe gymnasium, and the
reading rooms. The reading rooms
are a branch of the city public libra
ry. The reading room is open to the
people of the neighborhood every eve
ning and from 2 to 9 p. -m. on Sun
days. There is an assembly room which
seats about 900 persons. The chapel
exercises are held two days each week
in this room for the first to the fourth
grades inclusive; and two days, each
week for the fifth to eighth grades,
inclusive. The people aud teachers
also meet in this room every two
weeks or oftener to discuss matters of
pupils concern, to listen to lectures,
or to enjoy entertainments. All the
churches in the viiinitynre privileged
to use the assembly room for social
functions and entertainments.
The assembly room is equipped with
a tine stereopticon which is used in
connection with tha school work and
any of the community meetings and
The school is made a real social cen
ter. It is expected that the gymna
sium will be cpened for evening
classes next year.
The mauual training work has en
listed the liveliest interest among the
boys. Some of them come as early as
half past Feven in the morning to
work. The boys recently made a
handsome hall clock fur the school.
They have also made manv tables,
desks, book-cases, e!o , for the school.
The work is planned, as Principal
Benson says,, "to open as many ave
nues of expression as possible to the
Dupils. " The domestic science de
partment is splendidly equipped, and
the girls are taught the science and
art of " home-makiug" as well as
the art of housekeeping.
Several pianos are in the building.
The marching is all done to piano
music A fine graphophone is also
used, and by a system of exchange
among the schools, the pupils have
the pleasure of hear.ng a large num
ber of high class records. . An in
structor explains the music and tries
to lead to the appreciation of the best
in music. This encourages botli in
strumental and vocal music among the
pupils. There is a regular insruo
tion in vecal musio in the grades.
The regular school work is" high
class. The departmental plan is fol-
! lowed in several branches.

Modern Slaughter House Method

INSTANT DEATH IS ASSURED.
Pne Dexterous Thrust Through tha
Animal's Head by an Expert Work
man Ends Consciousness How the
Carcass Is Skinned and Dressed.
The easiest way you could possibly
think of is the way sheep are killed ia
the packing houses. Most persons mis
takenly Imagine that they are treated
horribly and see iu their minds a
bloodthirsty man, with shoulders like
hams, standing over a poor, defense
less sheep with a bludgeon in his
hands ready to send the creature
straight to the promised land. But
there is where the sentimentalist goes
completely wrong, for if there is an
animal that is treated right-in speak
ing of its denth-it is the sheep. There
is only one thing that doesn't look as
though death was absolute pleasure for
the sheep, and that is right at tbe very
start of tbe killing operation.
The sheep nre driven from the yard3
up a long chute, and when they enter
the pathway a leader sheep puts him
self at tbelr bead to take them up iuto
I be killing room. These sheep are
trained and are nearly always black
so that there will be no mistake made
and the leader sheep killed.
, This lender takes the animals up the
chute to a pen that Will hold about
fifty sheep. Here a man catches them,
two at a time, and shackles them by
their hind legs. This is tbe operation
referred to aa the only one painful to
tbe sheep. "
The auimnl Is then swung on to what
is called the Ferris wheel. This wheel
is constantly revolving, and as it reach
es a certain spot the sheep are trans
ferred to a track from which they
hang head downward. At that point
their suffering ceases, for the next
workman is tbe man who kills them.
The killing process is one that Is ab
solutely painless to the sheep. Tbe
workman is adept and never misses
the mark at which he strikes. With
a sharp knife in his hand, he moves
down the row of hanging animals, and
as he comes to each one be feels of
the bead just behind the ears and finds
the point where the bones of the head
leave an opening. In this the knife is
thrust and goes through the bead of
the animal, completely severing on
both sides a large artery. The sheep is
killed instantly. Five hundred sheep
can be bandied every hour at this
point They are then "pated," an op
eration that consists of skinning the
ffre part of the head and the neck.
'i'be next workman cuts through the
hide on the breast and skins just one
spot below the neck. The fore legs are
then broken and cut off to be sent to
the bone room.
The fact that there is a time for ev
erything and one man to do Just his
part and no more Is emphasized in the
sheep room when one sees just one
hind leg skinned by one man and tbe
other skinned in nn entirely different
operation. The sheep is then put on
what is called the endless chiin. This
chain consists of hooks at intervals
and is constantly moving, making the
rounds of the room in about twenty
minutes. Along this chain are the
workmen, and as the sheep is passed
on to them by the chain they do their
work and wait for the next carcass.
After the two hind legs have been
skinned the back is partly skinned and
the animal is passed ou to the next
man, who ia called a "pelter." He
grusps the pelt just above the hind
iegs. and. with a few deft twists of it.
it is pulled off and tbe sheep passed
ou to the next workman.
After being skinned the sheep are
carefully washed and wiped, a new
towel being used ou every animal. An
endless chain is in progress here also,
for when a towel is used it is thrown
into a vat of boiling water, washed
and put Into a drier to be used over
and over again. After the animal has
heen washed tbe head is taken off and
the neck washed in tbe same manner
us the rest of the carcass. ' The gov
ernment inspector then gets it. and it
is subjected to a rigid examination,
after which tbe sUimp of approval of
the United States is put on.
After the head is taken off it is sent
to the floor below, where the tongue is
taken out. and the remainder of it sent
to the bone room.
There ore two ways of dressing the
sheep. Some of the buyers insist ou
having the caul fat with the animal,
while others do not care about it. If
the fat is desired it is put on the hind
part of the animal, covering about one
half of the body, and is then split, re
vealing tbe carcass shorn of the vis
cera. The dressed animals are buns on
overhead tracks and put on an eleva
tor to be sent to the cooling roofci.

The editions of books printed 200 or
300 years ago are almost entirely free
from typographical errors, which may
be attributed to the fact that early
publishers were generally eminent
scholars and themselves pave much
! attention to the revision of their proofs.
After reading the proofs they frequent
ly turned them over to other scholars
with the request to revise and correct,
and as tbe printers time was then
deemed a matter of small consequence
a perfection was attained which Is
seldom equaled by modern printers.
