But It la as an inventor that he baa won bis national reputation, Ssyeru.1 most useful and important inventions wore made by him before he produced the Williams typewriter, a roacbloe that probably excels all others in tbe most important features Mr. Williams, speaking of the labor expended in bringing tho 'tnacblno that bears his name to its present perfection, says: "Some four years ago, when engaged in experimental work on the Williams'. I was putting in about 16 hours per day of hard work and worry, and came near breaking down. Al» thOHgfh very particular and regular in my habits and careful about my eating, my stomach troubled me. It was difficult to digest and assimu'ate my food, my stomach acting in sympathy with an over-worked brain. A friend had sent some Palne'a celery compound to one of my business associates, and knowing him personally, acd seeing what it did for him, I thought I would try it. I commenced taking it before meals, and it «.t once stimulated my appetite and aided digestion. I took two bottles and was much benefited. "Again two years later I was troubled with cervousness and indl gestion, and again took Paine's celery compound with great benefit.

Enormous business has been dono lately at French fairs by a man who professed to sell a rat powder that was perfectly harmless and that struck rats dead on the spot. In order to convince the skeptical, the man, first of all, powdered a slice of bread with the stuff, and ate a piece of it himsc-U. Then he put the remainder under a glass case, in which a rat was kept in captivity. The rat went to cat the bread and instantly fell dead. At five pence a box the powder went off like hot rolls, and the lucky proprietor of the specific was in a fair way to make a fortune. But the police, who in France ; are very active in protecting the people from fraud, looked into the matter and found that the powder was nothing but ordinary su"-ar. They also discovered. that the case was connected with a powerful electric battery, and the moment the rat touched the bread the current was turned on. and it was thus his death was brought about. The man was arrested at the fair of Albi, and he has been sentenced to fifteen days' imprisonment.

WOOD PULP MOSAIC; A Roorinf Smltl to be Miperior to Stone to >'oir Jtl»do of Paper. In the latest reports of the local Industrial Union, mention is mads of a process claimed to be entirely new, for manufacturing floor mosaics from wood pulp, an innovation which is expected to produce important results. It i* claimed that this process is distinguished from the known processes of manufacturing sectional or mosaic floors, by reason of the fact that sections made according to it are not liable to any change of temperature, and are not like stone, but similar to •wood in all essential qualities. The process is as follows: Small particles of wood, such as sawdust, wood flour, fine shavings, etc., nre soaked in a mixture of shellac and alcohol, so that the pores of the wood are penetrated and thoroughly dried. A cement, consisting of fresh cheese whey (curd) and slacked lime, is then prepared. The cement is thinned with water and then mixed thoroughly with the already dry wood particles in such a way that the consistency of the mass is uniform. Particular care is taken to render the cement as thin as possible, so that it will distribute itself easily and uniformly, and inclose each particle of wood as perfectly as the shellac solution. The mixture thus produced is allowed to iry until it is inoist—not throughly dry, as before, for in the latter case the curd would lose its cohesive power. The moist pulp is then put into heated mosaic- molds, of the desired shape and size, and, in these forms, placed under the press. As a result of the heat, the shellac softens, regaining its adhesive powers, and the curd cement hardens rapidly, so that both of the substances, the sheUac as well as the cement, unite under the pressure so perfectly with tho wood particles that the wood mass resulting may, within a few minutes, be taken out of the molds without losing the form received. After the cooling process and complete hardening these mosaics, it is claimed, are far less susceptible to any change of temperature or moisture than any natural wood. It is absolutely necessary that the use of every other ingredient, especially if of an oily or fatty character, should be avoided in this process, as otherwise the close union of the shellac with the curd cement would be retarded or even prevented. Wood pulp for the manufacture of vari-colored mosaics is prepared in the following manner: The particles of different varieties of wood are put through the process separately, so that the natural color of the wood itself is brought into prominence. Dyes, dissolved in alcohol, are mixed with the shellac solution before the wood particles are coated. The wood particles are first colored with dyes, dissolved in water, and allowed to dry well before the coating with the shellac solution. For simple floors it suffices to manufacture mosaics of different colors, changing thorn at pleasure so as to form a variety of patterns. The manufacture of pattern or fancy wood mosaics is proceeded with as follows: Pattern molds, of the required design (divided into fields and figures), are fitted into the plain mold; each section of the design is filled with the wood pulp, dyed as before described, and thu pattern mold removed, after which the whole, thus freely outlined, is subjected, to heat and pressure, as before mentioned, the result being perfect vari-colored fancy mosaic. This wood mosaic, in spite, of its hardness and resisting qualities, still retains all the essential properties of wood, being thus particularly well adapted for use as floor covers in living rooms and similar purposes.—^.

The Sarooan Islands, or rather the waters surrounding^ them, .ire the natural habitat of the palolo, an edible worm, which is reckoned by the writers on food curiosities as being one of the most remarkable table delicacies that ever tickled the palate of an epicure. The palolo is a many-jointed creature, about live to eight inches in length, and is found in a variety of colors, but generally in yellow, blue or green. The worm is of about the diameter of a common darning- needle, and is, as far as the writer knows, found only in the waters bordering the islands of the South Pacific. It is not the matter of color, length and nativity alone, however, that, makes the palolo an oddity, nor even in the fact that it is used as an article of food, but more especially because its motions are controlled by the moon. There is only one da3 T —or rather one morning 1 —during 1 the entire year that the Samoans can catch the palolo, and that on the first day of the last of the November moon. Very early on the morning 1 of the "palolo day" the waters of all South Pacific islands are alive with boats filled with natives armed with short-handed scoop nets, aud even before it is light enough to see plainly they are continually crying ''Palolo, palolo!" and using their instruments of capture with wonderful "dexterity. Even the women and children work in gathering the anilnal crop, the harvest being 1 of such short duration, those which are unprovided with nets using baskets, sieves, pieces of thin cloth— in fact, anything that will strain out the worms and let the water pass through. All work with tremendoxis energy, for each fully realizes that the appearance of the .sunabove the waters will be the signal for the palolo to disappear as if by magic. As we said in the opening, this queer, wiggly creature is regarded as a delicate article of food, but that fact alone would not entitle it to credible mention among the world's wonders, The mystery of its appearance for only a few hours on one certain morning of the 3'ear, and the fact that that morning invariably corresponds to a certain phase of the moon, and its magical disappearance at the moment of sunrise, were Darwin's reasons for speaking of the palolo as "the oddest creature of all creation. 1 '—Chicago Imcr Ocean.

I asked them why they did not get up and run, but they replied simply: 'We just shut our eyes, commended our souls to our Maker, and went on with our prayers for the city full of people!'"

When lidmond About was in Greece, he carried matters so far as to object to eating green peaches. JTe was in the bu/.ynr :it Athens, says the | Youth's Companion. I "Wouldn't it bo possible to got some . ripe ponchos?" ho asked the vender. "1 think not,"answered the Athenian. "But pray tell me why?" "We have no good roads. If the farmers .should try to bring ripe fruit to market on mule-hack, it would arrive in the shape of marmalade." •'But at Corfu, also, the peaches were green, and they have good roads, and bring the fruit to town in wagons." "Ah, well," said t/he man, "there is another reason. The farmers have no money, and they have creditors. They can't wait for fruit to get ripe." There, says About, you have a fair example of the state of Grecian agriculture. ' ' A French gardener, being at Smyrna, noticed that the Greeks had almost no vegetables in their gardens—tomatoes everywhere, and scarcely anything else. "Why don't you raise other things?" he asked. "Asparagus, now. Your soil is just right. You would make a fine thing of it. I will furnish you with seeds." "How soon should we get crops?" "In four years at the longest." "Four years! Are you crar.y? Do you suppose we would spend money to get something back in four years?
