Some specimens unearthed by archaeologists are knov.'n to be 2,500 years old. They are of bronze, and taeir outer surfaces show the familiar indentations for engaging the head of the needle.

To Keep Ice, "When it is desirable to keep ice in the sickroom, this will be found a very "good plan: Get a large, wide-mouthed jar, tie a piece of coarse flannel over it, making it loose aad bag-like ia the center. Now put the ice ia this bag and cover it with another piece . of Sannel, folded three or four times. It will keep better this way than by any other method. When you require, to break it, use a coarse darning needle or a,fine knitting needle, giving it a geatle tap with a hammer.

The expense of reproducing these pictures is very great, and but for the ·willing- ness of the PUBLIC LEDGER to assume this expense these wonderful pictures might long have remained beyond the reach of the public to be momentarily enjoyed only by the few who might have - occasion to see the originals when "doing" the Gapitol at Harrisburg.
