How Staff Statuary Is Made.
"Tho process of crontlng the large
pieces of statuary out of Btaff Is very
Interesting" writes Katherlno Loulso
Smith, In tho January Pearson's. "Af
tor the sculptor has sent his accepted
model to the fair, the work of onlarge
ment begins, and ono of several
plecos, as occasion requires, aro
flnlshod, oach of which Is an exact
counterpart of the model on an on
Idrgod scale.
"Stnff Is simply a long fibre soaked
in plaster of pads, mixed thin with
wntor. This flbro, which Is gonorally
Mexican, comos In balds of 100
pounds, nnd on Its nrrlval In tho rope
stage Is run through machines to
loosen It. ,Mndo with this hemp fibre,
stair can he snwed, hammerod and
Whittled like wood, whllo various
forms can be mndo as offectlvoly as
with plaster of parls alone.
"A staff modeler proceeds exactly
as though his work was to bo execut
ed In Parian mnrble or enduring
bronze, Instead or porlshablo plastor.
A framework of wood or Iron with
flexible lead pipe for tho arms and
nock of the figure Is first mndo, cor
responding to tho modol which It is
intended to copy. A huge pointer,
somowhat llko tho pentngrnph usod
by art students, is used in obtaining
tho correct onlnrgoment, one point
rostlng on tho modol, and tho other
dotting tho enlarged counterpart. Ev
ory Inch of tho statuto In process of
making Is thus accurately measured.
"The man who executes tho first
procoas In tho formation of staff slaps
hugo handfuls of wot staff on th
woodon framework, shaping It crude
ly with thumb and fingers, and In
cossantly using tho hugo pontngraph
for mensuromontB.
"From tho man at tho pontngraph,
tho shapeless Imago passes to tho
modolor. If a largo ploco Is under
construction it is placed on a plat
form with rollors, that tho modoler
may turn tho flguro oaslly as he
shape the ploco with staff, using his
hands to put on nocossnry additions,
smoothing rough plncos with his
lingers and with spatula, and cutting
wire, doing nil, In fact, but the last ro-
lining and smoothing process. During
respites of labor, while the figure Is
at this stags It is covored with n damp
cloth to keep it from crncklng.
"The last procose Is tho work of the
sculptor, who Is nn expert. He fin
ishes the staff ropllca exactly llko the
smaller model from which It Is tho en
larged counterpart coating the staff
with shellac, and adding rellnlns
touches, until ho Is satisfied with It."
Mistresses Need Training.
(Brooklyn Eagle.)
"Schools for the training of mlst
resses are as much needed a? schools
for the training of maids," said a
wnmnu whe Is active!) Interested in
philanthropic work and is frequently
callod upon to secure place for
worthy young women In seaich ot
ompleymen: ns domestics. "Some ol
tho estimable women who come to
mo with tales ab6ut the Inefficiency
of Borvantb would probably conslde.'
such speech rank horosy on my part,
but I do not wonder thnt so many
girls prefer factory nnd shop llfo to
domostlc service. In the factory or
shop Uiay have certain work to per
form In a cortaln tlmo. Then thoy
nre porfectly froo to do as thoy llko
In domostlc service the hours of sor
vice aro mighty elastic and the hours
of freodom rigidly defined, nnd in
many housos whero the mlstrosa
thinks horeolf ami Is thought by
others to bo very charitable and
broad-minded, her servants lead a Ufa
of drudgery. Of course, thero are
homos whoro the mistress Is a troa
uro and tho maids likewise, but this
pft-dlscussod sorvant problem and tha
nronesed regeneration and refor
mation qf the maid Is not the one
sided question so many consider It."
Tub Night In Finland,
Ilathing in Finland, whero it is al
ways cold, is a queor ceremony.
In the first placo it la very, very
cold in Finland and the bathroom is
not in Uie house at all. but In n
budding quite separate.
It Is a round building, about the
size of an ordinary room. There are
no windows, so light and air can only
como in when tho door is open.
Insldo bonchos arc built along the
wall, and In tho conter is a great plla
of looso stonos. Early on Saturday
morning wood is brought in nnd a
great vossol standing near the stones
Is filled with wntor.
Then someone cuts over so many
birch switches, and these aro placed
on tho floor of tho bath room. Next
the flro Is mado under tho stonos,
and It burns nil morning. In tho
afternoon, whon tho stonos are very
hot. the fire Is put out, the placo is
3wept clean, and all Is ready.
Tho boys undress In tholr homes
and run to tho bath house. As It Is
gonorally 30 below zoro, you may be
sure thoy do It In double-quick time.
As soon aB they aro In the bath
house thoy shut the door tight nnd bo
gin to throw wator on tho hot stones.
This, of courso, inakos the steam
rise. Moro water Is thrown on and
there Is more steam, until tho place
Is filled quite full of It.
And now comes the pnrt that
American boys would not llko at all.
Ench boy tnkos n birch switch and
falls to whipping his companions.
This Is to mako tho blood circulate,
ant' though It Is real hard whipping,
no ono object., but all think It gront
fun. At last, looking like a lot of
bollod lobstols, thoy all rush out,
have a roll in tho snow 'and, nake
for homo.
Stopping High Speed Cars.
While much hns been printed re
"My In jexrnrd to the high spe-id
trials on tho Berlln-Zosen electric
railway, where the cars attained a
speed of over 125 miles per hour, but
llttlo nttention has beon given to one
Important, factor In such rapid movo
ment. The momentum attained by
these cars is a factor which can be
Imagined with difficulty, and It Is Im
possible to bring them to a stop whon
running at full speed under a distance
of one mile. This is what has ac
tually occurrod In the speed trlnls
abovo mentioned, the car having run
a mllo after tho brakos woro applied.
Tho full meaning of this is not ap
parent until comparison Is made
with our railway trains, whoro the
block slgnnls aro not placed vory far
apart, and a train enn readily bo
brought to a standstill in tho dis
tance covored by two blocks. If this
lino Is to maintain this rnto of speed
It will moan that the cars can only
bo run at long distances apart, and
that Uio slzo of tho semaphore arms
and lights will havo to ho Increased
until thoy aro readily distinguishable
at a dlstonco of nearly two miles.
Purifying Milk by Ozone.
An npparatus In use in Gormany for
the purification of milk by ozonlzatlon
Is so constructed that the milk con.
tnlnod In a vossel flows thenco In n
thin stream Into anothor vessel placed
beneath. Tho wires and carbon points
of a strong oloctrlc battery are so ar
rangod that tho aro formod by the
Jumping of the current from one enr
bon point to tho other passes through
or In close proximity to the stream
of milk. The ozone which Is there
by engendered from the oxygen of
the nlr Is said to be sufficient to kill
nil micro-organisms contained In the
milk. While no reference has been
made to the use of this apparatus
for the purification of wnter, thero
seams to be no reason why oxone
could not be applied to this end, un
loss It bo tho difference In cost be
tween the milk nnd wnter, the price
obtainable for tho latter possibly not
permitting the use of this purifying
A Man Who Could Keep Silent.
The late Hugh Stowell Scott, fa
moiig as Henry Saton Merrlman
author of "The Sowers." "The Vul
turts," and other novols. was a man
of extraordinary reserve and solf
command. Tho following story lo
told of him: His father, who was a
director of tho London Graphic, had
an unaccountablo objection to his
son's following a literary career, and
trlod to make a business man of him.
His son wrote In secret undor a pbou
donym, and. although his work was
Buceeasful. ho nover betrayed hln
lltorary Idoutlty to his fathor. On ona
occasion his father placed before him
one of the young author's own stories,
saying, "Now. If you could write n
book like this, it would bo anothoi

Nervous Prostration
Faint Spells.
Dr. Miles' Nervine Saved
My Llfo.
There Is creat danger in a run down con
dition. Overwork, mental itraln, the caret
and worries of business and the borne, all
have a deleterious effect upon the nerves,
which In their devitalized condition readily
fall prey to the attacks of disease. Aside
from the danger there is no condition at
tended by so many disagreeable symptoms;
such as loss of appetite, indigestion or nerv
ous dyspepsia, headache, tired feeling and
loss of ambition together with the agony of
sleepless nights spent la tossing restlessly
about, only to rise exhausted in the morning.
Dr. Miles1 Nervine Is a true nerve tonic
which, by strengthening the nerves, restores
health and appetite and brings sweet sleep.
"For six years I suffered almost constantly
from a complication of troubles which culmi
nated In complete nervous prostration. I
had no nppetitc, I could not sleep, I suffered
from indigestion and nervousuess. As Is so
often the case In nervous prostration 1 Ire-
auently had weak, fainting spells. Doctors
id not help me. They said my blood was
very poor, and I know my face was always
very pale. The very first bottle of Dr. Miles'
Nervine I took gave me noticeable relief and
I felt stronger than I had in years. My
neighbors in Puyallup, Wash., where I then
lived will testify to this. I also used some of
Dr. Miles' Restorative Tonic nnd Anti-Pain
Pills. I believe the Dr. Miles Remedies
saved my life." Mrs. J. C. Bnkimct, Tuck
