This press consists of a strong castiron top nnd bottom, with four steel columns and a steel cylinder, with a In the center of this ram is J. B.

Thoy call the man a crank, because ho has but one idea in life, and because bis Conversation is always concerning that upon which his waking and sleep- Ing thoughts are exercised. His name is J. B, Cresslcr, and his home is near a mountain town of Pennsylvania, near the Maryland line, and only a few hours ride from this city. Down at the Smithsonian Institution, where scientific men are trying- to solve the problem of aerial navigation, ho is spoken of as a man who has achieved 'much with circumscribed opportunities and facilities. I visited him recently, and learned some of his secrets, although he would not show his big flying machines. He said: "I learned from the Bible when only a little boy that men must Taking mo out 'into tho country road, he pulled a little toy from his pocket and sent it whirling in the air fully two hundred feet. It went as quid; as sight, and fell back at his feet. "This is the way to sail," he snid. as he took another toy from his pocket and sent it sailing do\vn the road five hundred feet or more. A little boy brought it back, and he said: "Look at it and see if you know what mnkcs it mount and sail." It was a mystery, even when held in the hand and viewed with the naked eye at, close range. This man may be a crank, and he undoubtedly is, in a limited sense. His whole being is absorbed by his one idea, and his simple faith in God is awe- inspiring. His eyes have an unnatural glitter, and his manner is one of intense nervousness, fie" talks rapidly and his movements are almost quick as thought. Uis faith is contagious. Without seeing- his machine, I was impressed with the belief that in this mountain retreat a great problem is really being solved bv a man who is not seeking I 4 w ' ( liimeMf Vmt. ,'= ^r,.

I have received some of my best ideas while on my knees in the solitude of the night. I am confident that Cod will enlighten * some one of His servants, and lot him see the way to navig-utcthe clouds, just as to-day we navigate the sea. The growth of commerce demands It, and sooner or later man will fly. I believe that i am to be the humble instrument in His hands, to bring- about this necessity of the times, .so that all men may forever enjoy its benefits. I have worked now for nearly thirty years, and have spent all of my heritage. I am now living on eleven cents a day, but you see I am as healthy and strong as those good Hebrews who were privcd of meat while they were in captivity. Tho good Ijor<l is with me. I love my work, because 1 am serving Him, and His children. When 1 can fly, 1 shall be willing to yield up the ghost aod be gathered unto ray fathers. "1 have studied the birds over since I was a little boy. It is acknowledged by scientists that man cannot build a machine after the plan of any bird, and make it light enough to fly. I think that they arc nil wrong. I have not studied birds superficially. I have examined the wings of all classes of birds. They ure all different. The flapping birds, the sailing birds and the mounting birds arc all differently constructed. The quills arc differently arranged, and the feathers are not alike in any two classes of birds. I will not tell you anything about my machine, for I do not want suggestions nor interference from those who have not studied as I have studied for years, and upon my bended knees. 1 talk only to God about the construction of my machine. He gives me strength and assurance that I am on the right track. But 1 will tell you this, the only flyer of the air who carries a body bigger than his wings, who can mount at once and rush through the air with.the rapidity of lightning, is the little hornet. I was amazed when I discovered this truth. I had a hornet in my room and he stung me. He was very angry und did not want to give up his secret. But he flew to the light, and as ho buzzed against the window pane I watched him with a magnifying glass. 1 learned his secret, lie is the most wonderful of all tho creatures that navigate the air. "Why, do you know that at the great centennial exposition at Philadelphia, , there were ten thousand differ- glory and fame for himself, but is gaged in a work which he intends shall prove a blessing to the whole human race. "Will you jump from one of these mountain peaks some day?" "Oh, no. Xot that I would fear to trust myself to the dying machine. I would as lief do it as not. But I am not building a parachute. There is no trouble about jumping from a peak with a big- umbrella;mcl sailing through the air to the earth. But unless I c:iu 'mount up as the eagle' I cannot fly. The first principle to be solved is tho principle of 'mounting-;' and that is the principle which 1 have been spending these years in solving. I have learned the secret, and am now completing my machine. You see these little toys , will mount, and they do not need rail- , road cars nor steam engines. I am very poo 1 .', and am cramped for material;:, but 1 am getting most of them . from nature, for sho is bountiful, t j live on broad and milk and water, and | I work from si.x teen to eighteen hours ' every day withovt' getting tired. I , awake from my sleep as the sun comes ! over the crests of these everlasting hills; and I am always refreshed and ready for roy work. I thank God for my life and health, nnd then £O on with my life mission. It is almost accomplished." The earnest man iuforined_.me that his big machine, which is tliirty feet from tip to tip of its wings, weighs less than thirty pounds, no said: "When I can afford to build ruiother one, I will make it of aluminium and it will weigh not more than ten pounds. That is the metal which God has provided for man in unlimited quantities. It is dear today. It will soon be very cheap. If those toys which I showed you were made of aluminium, they would fly .out Thdt Appeared to Ita Too Valnuble to Part With. A well-known magician is a wag, and finds amusement in notif simple-minded folks. A correspondent of the Boston Transcript, \vriting from Washington, where the sleight-of-hand man had been exhibiting his skill, tells of his success in astonishing a group of colored people, Tho magician one morning went down to tho market. Washington has one of the largest and finest marketr houses in the world, and one of its most picturesque features is the row of comfortable negro mammies with bas- keta of eggs and vegetables, sitting outside the building, laughing, chatting and smoking. The sleight-of-hand expert, who had a friend with him, sauntered up to on* inky-black old marketwoman with a pipe in her mouth and a beautiful array of fresli eggs before her. He looked at them and asked the price. "Twenty-three cents, honey," an- mammy, "an" dese hcah is fust- rate cg-gs—de hen ain 1 hardly done cluckin' ober 'em yit." " I should think so," said he, and, as he picked up one and cracked it, out came a quarter. Mammy's jaw dropped, and the pipe with it, "And this one—nnd this one seems pretty good," carelessly remarked tho man, crocking two more, o_utof which fifty-cent pieces tumbled. lie cracked half a dozen in all, a.nd mammy's store of silver was increased every time. As he walked off. followed by a dozen pairs of beady black eyes with nothing but the whites showing, somebody came up and asked the awe-stricken old woman the price o: her eggs. "Dese nigs ain' fur sale," she an swered, and she g-atherod them up in her apron and waddled off in the direction of homo.. Pure. Safe. Prompt. Sure. Pleasing. Speedy.

The top pressure block which fits the die, is thru i 1 .'moved, and the small ram, rising, pushes the timber out at the top of the .die. The timber so treated is made fery dense and uniform, and so close- grained that it is capable of taking a very high finish. For the manufacture of shuttles it has been found as good 03 boxwood, and there"is no douVt it will be applied toother branches of industry where expensive hard woods have to be used. new ynacicer.T, The fertility of invention possessed by the quaok fraternity is truly astonishing-, but it may be doubted if the whole history of fraud could furnish a more remarlcable instance of cunning- audacity than one lately reported from ent kinds of birds, and, although they were all accessible, none of our scientific men studied their wing's, and made notes of their methods. It is a fact that here were gathered together for the study of man all sorts of God s flying creatures; aod 1 spent hours investigating the methods of their construction. Cut how do you suppose that I learned the secret of that groat sailer, the eagle? I took a little food with me, and, awuy up in the clefts ot the Blue Ridge mountains, I lay and watched them as thoy sailed along, apparently motionless, from crag to crag. There I learned the secret of the slight motions which kept them afloat. It is difficult for nearly all classes of birds to mount into the air; but after the great sailers have reached the upper strata they find little difficulty in keeping on upwards toward the -sun. I have studied all of Germany. In the village of Kadbruck, ! them, and have all-of their secrets near Uartrargh, lives a shepherd, who ! written down in books, as well as in the pretends to diagnose disease from state of a patient's hair. So great are the numbers of applicants, from eight hundred to one thousand daily, that the wise man, in order to preserve his own health, has limited the number of consultations to two hundred daily, and only those who have tickets ore admitted. It is said that the farms and s of the neighborhood are thronged, as if they were near the »ceno of some famous pilgrimage. • The whole : story rends like some, medieval legend, but the police are taking steps to put an end to these Arcadian quackeries. m}- memory. If I should die, some one else might go on with my work. But I believe that God intends to keep me here on earth until I have solved the problem. I feel that I am near the promised land of discovery. " Over in Europe," he continued, "Maxim has a flying machine which he starts with a railroad train. It is costly, and merely a sailer. His machine cannot mount without a railroad for an impetus. That is not flying-; it v is sailing-. That is the work of the eagle, after he has mounted.' But a perfect flying machine must be able to lift it« of sight so quick that you would wonder at their disappearance, and think it was some sort of magic.'' Tho expert scientists at the Smithsonian have no doubt that flying machines will be common publi* property before the close of the century. They say that the old idea that a gas reservoir is necessary to flying machines has long since been abandoned. Roger Bacon declared more than six hundred years ago that "a reservoir of thin metal, filled with ctherealized air or Liquid fire," was the prime essential to a flying machine, and that theory was accepted without question until within the last half century; consequently tho scientific theories concerning the problem of aerial navigation have taken an entirely different direction during the past twenty years. The generally accepted theory of science now is that the development of some sort of power which will produce sufficiently rapid revolutions of screw propellers, will result in air ships which will mount and 'sail as easily through the air as ships are propelled through the water *y that means. But nearly all of them unite in rejecting- the bird theory as an exploded vagary. Probably if they knew the secret which has been developed by the man in the mountains they might take another view of the matter. The idea of carrying freight through the •air is not yet entertained, but the expectation is almost universal that tho lime is rapidly approaching when passenger traffic will be managed entirely above the clouds, or through them. With this end in view, little life boats of alnminium have already been constructed, and parachutes have been designed, by means of which passengers may alight at different prints, without delaying the onward flight of air ships carrying through passengers. The little life boats are to prevent drowning, in the event of a collision or other accident in the air, when flying over rivers or kikes. Like the man in the mountains, all scientists look to aluminium as the magic key which is to open the air to the use of man, so that distances between friends may be annihilated, and a trip from Eastport, Maine, to San Francisco. i»h*" be a mere pleasure trio Cultivating Oysters In Ohlncso AVikCera for } tltc Purpose. The cultivation of the pearl oyster has for years been carried on with great success in the Bay of Ago, In Japan, under direction and restriction of governmental supervision. The process of nature is, however, too slow for modern requirements. A Frenchman has been boring holes in the shells of pearl oysters and introducing therein small glass be;uls and stopping up the holes with cork. In six months he has pure surface pearls with a glass foundation The nacre of the pearl mollusk varies according to its location, and almost any color of pearl, as white, black, pink or graj - , can readily be produced by lodging the nucleus on the appropriate part of the mollusk's body. The Chinese are wonderfully expert in the manufacture of pearls. They introduce small balls of earth inside the pearl mussel by very delicately opening the shclJ aud placing the nuclei under the mouth of the animal, and allowing the shell to close. This initial process occurs is May or June; the mussels are then deposited in canals or pools, and in November the molhisks are opened, the pearls removed, holc^borcd therein, the neclei extracted, the hollow pearl filled with melted resin and the orifice skillfully filled with mother-of-pearl. These Chinese pearls are flat on the bottom, and are nearly hemispherical in shape. Pearls can be made of almost any shade or color by chemical means. The black pearl, for instance, is indelibly colored in a bath of nitrate of silver. Pearls being pa.rtly of animal substance are subject to deterioration and decay, and none of the famous pearls of to-day can be traced back many generations. NOT MUCH OF A WORLD.
