[Prosldont tir.a Director-General.] dclphia during- tho centennial. The control of this business will be held by tho Exposition company, and not let as a concession, as at Chicag-o, where a charge was made for parties listing rooms. At, Atlanta absolutely no charge will be made either to hotels, boardinghouses, residents or visitors for this sen-ice. An elaborate canvass is being made of tho city and the suburbs, and every available room will bo registered. Tho same work will bo carried through .the outlying towns for a distance of thirty or forty miles, and commutation tickets will bo put on by all of tho roads, so that visitors seeing tho fair during tho day will bo able to get out in the evening nnd return early the next morning-. This will materially expand Atlanta's surface for accommodating visitors. All this information will be tabulated and sent broadcast over the country, and visitors from a distance will bo encouraged to engage quarters in advance. In this way much of tho work of public comfort will be dono before the exposition opens. During the exposition the public comfort headquarters will be opened at some central point in the city, and active and experienced men will be placed in charge. A corps of messengers will bo constantly in waiting, and every house on tho list will be visited twice a day and every vacant room will bo reported. Tho managers of the bureau will bo ablo to toll at any time exactly how »any rooms are open, and in what locality. In short, the public comfort bureau will run the city very much as a hotel is run, only bicycle messengers will take the place of bellboys. | A FERTILE SECTION. Th» Piedmont Region and the Great Cot-' ton State*. Atlanta is the center of the unsurpassed agricultural and mineral quadrilateral forming the southeastern section of tho Union. 'Within a radius of, 100 miles of Atlanta there is a greater variety, and in some instances a greater abundance of minerals, than can be found so near any other city in this country, if not in the world, and the whole territory contiguous to Atlanta is -richer in variety and extent of minerals, woods and agricultural products than any on the continent The region from which the Cotton States exposition takes its name is one of the most fertile and productive in the world. Its farm products equal in value the entire exports of the United Stntes, and its manufactures, now in their infancy, are sufficient to pay for all tho imports into the country. This great region, stretching from the Atlantic to the Mississippi, and from the Potomac to the Rio Grande, has more seacoast than any country in Europe, and several times more than any other geographical division of tho United States. While thus it is broadly in touch with the world by water, its inland transportation, is excellent and extensive. The Mississippi river, which, with its tributaries, affords 45,000 miles of navigation, equal to one^fourth • of the railway mileage of the United States, finds its greatest'usefulness and heaviest traffic in the cotton region. The Ohio, tho Tennessee, the Ocmulgee, the Cumberland and the Coosa, the Arkansas, the Alabama, the Chattahoochee and the Savannah, *nd a number of minor streams, play a large part in the traffic of the southern states; coupled with this is a railway service far beyond the limits of population in, efficiency, offering fares and freights lower, in proportion to the volume ol traffic, than in any other country, ..CAPABLY MANAGED. most unlimited. Tlie committee on finance control expenditures and audit their own bills. Mr. Collier is a baak president and a young- man of great force and oxecuiive ability, and is assisted by the leading business men of Atlanta. Authority is moro centralized than it was in, the Chicag-o organization, and there is not nearly as much circumlocution or red tape. Each branch is under the control of an individual, who has final power. The department of publicity and promotion is in charge of Mr. W. G. Cooper, an experienced newspaperman, who understands his business and is allowed much latitude. THE SNAKE'S DINNER. How tho Harlequin Boa Crnshcn It« Prey Defore Devouring It. Of the whole number—about eighteen hundred species—of serpents which exist on the earth probably one-fourth kill their prey by constriction. The snake here depicted, says the London Sketch, is a typical example of this class—a baby specimen of the harlequin boa, a reptile of marvelously beautiful coloration, occurring throughout tropical America. Although the title "boa" is synonymous with all that is Brob- dingnag-ian in snakeflesh, according to popular misconception, the species attains to but insignificant dimensions compared to the pythons and anaconda, rarely exceeding ten or twelve feet in length; the subject of the photograph is nine rnontlis old, and measures nearly four feet. Tho white rat is seined and crushed, an act inconceivably rapid, and SOCKS MADE OF PAPER. Description of a Now and Valu- , able Industrial Process. impossiWo to bo analyzed by the eye- a sudden Hash, and snake and prey lie rolled together motionless, the latter rte.art, with its bones smashed as though gripped by powerful machinery. Mr. Edison may do g-ood service to science with his kinutoscopc here; his forty consecutive photos per second, rendered in correct sequence, but slowly, might present the mechanism of the process as visibly and intelligently as Lord Raylcig-h's recent portraiture of the brcaking-up of a soap bubble. The victim is swallowed whole, and head foremost, since fur, hair and feathers lie smoothly backward in that direction. The swallowed meal may be noted by the distension of the middle of the body in the illustration, in which a dead rat, of similar size to' the one just eaten, is placed near to the boa's head, to illustrate the enormous disproportion between the diameter of the neck and that of the object which passes through it undivided. If the snake's head were chopped off, the section would present, not the orifice of a pipe occupying its area, but the divided backbone and spinal cord, masses of muscle, the severed windpipe, blood vessels, and a number of other structures, among which the cut end of the gullet would be picked out with some little difficulty, of little larger caliber than a darning needle. Yet so distensible is this tube that it will afford passage to a body considerably larger than a rat—a guineapig, for instance. HIS ALUMINUM EAR. IVoO'l *«d K'»C rmp Arc U«£<1 to Advantage— Tbc Mnchluo L'tPtl for form- Inn Pulp Yurns—T.lc Winil- ius Operation. Heretofore the expense of splitting, twisting and preparing paper yarns for commercial use has been so high that manufacturers of fabrics have found little inducement to use them in making textiles. Lately', however, says the New York Tribune, a number of paper pulp manufacturers have been at work on the problem of producing- cheap pulp yarns, with the result that a new process has been formulated. The old method of splitting, twisting, etc., has been done away with, and a much simpler and inexpensive mode has been adopted. The advent of modern machinery has been a factor in bringing this about. In making yarns according to the new process, the first operation consists in the selection of the stock. Both wood and rag pulp are used. The product of the poplar gives a good fiber. The shavings are reduced to pulp in the ordinary paper-mill digesters, compounds of chloride of zinc, gelatine, castor oil and litharge arc introduced, mixed well, and the stock is ready for the next operation. Whore ray material is used, borax, white lead, printer's rollers composition, glue and tallow are among the ingredients. The process of dissolving the rags to pulp is conducted on the regular plan. The substances employed in conjunction with the pulps serve to impart flexibility, toughness, elasticity and other needed characteristics to the yarns. Several contrivances have been experimented with for reducing the pulp SKCT10NAI, VIEW OK MACHISE fOlt FO1UI IXG PULP YAHXS. to a threadlike form. One consists o: pressing the pulp through a perforated steel bottom, the strands being- formed by passing through the holes. Another is a mode of casting or molding the Strands in prepared forms. One whicl: appears to be doing fairly well is illustrated in 'the diagram, in whbh the pulp is put into the cylinder A, part of the interior of which is exposed showing the head, which is forced in ward by turning the screw adjustmenl at B, thus squeezing the contents out of the'opening at C. This opening is one-quarter of an inch in diameter, anc the pulp emerges from it, passes be tween the heated copper cylinders D, D, D, coming out at E. These cylinders are grooved, the strand running in the groove. Only one st*and is What Science Ilm Done for an Aeed and KarJem Englishman. We have had people with glass eyes, porcelain teeth and artificial whiskers, und now along comes u. man with an aluminum ear. He is sixty-three years oi age and was admitted into the Queen's hospital, at Birmingham, England, in April, 1898, with an epithelioma oi the left auricle. The greater part of the diseased ear was cut off by the attending surgeon and a plaster of paris cast was taken of the left side of his head. T,hen an artificial ear was built up in wax to match the healthy'pne on the opposite side. This bogus 1 ear was then made in vulcanite and' aluminum, tinted and enameled to harmonize with the complexion. No artificial contrivance, such as a spectacle frame, was made use -of IHB MAJT -WITH THE AiTjlinrCTM EAB. to support the aluminum ear, and adhesion to the head was effected by means of a saturated solution of mastic in absolute alcohol. The man now'^ can hear as well as ever, but he takes care to sleep on his right side at night so as not to break oft his new ear. At tbe same time he has no fear of having it frost bitten, and.he is probably the only man alive who could even partly comply with, the request of Marc Antony: "Lend me your The Director General Has Almost Cn. limited Authority.

The gear connections at E impart the necessary motion. The strand grows smaller and harder as it nears the end, whence it is wound automically on the spool at F. In Fig; 2 is exhibited the principle of the winding-o£E process, and A indicates the drawing rollers, the speed of each being increased toward the last, resulting in elongating and drawing out the strand, whitAi is not yet thoroughly dry. The mouthpiece B is driven at a rapid rate by the band C, and serves to impart a twisty character to the strand, for the latter passes through its center,,, as shown. Next the strand goes over the guide roll D, down to the spool E, the latter being turued by the band which encircles the pulley at F.

About the only difference between the machines required for knitting- the pulr> yiu-ns and those employed in knitting textile's is that the needles in the latter case are somewhat heavier. Although cotton and woolen stock is knit into cheap hose at present, the paper-knit goods are the cheaper, beintf produced at so little expense that socks can be retailed at three cents a pair. It is said that the same kind of yarns can be knit into other poods with good results. The samples of socks exhibited appear soft; and evidently set well on the foot. The application of impervious substances makes it possible for them to stand several washings before falling apart. MILK PAfL TROLLEY. How On« Dairyman Sarei Contldermble Work and Annoyance. I have a wire stretched from my stable to the dairy house-; for carrying 1 milk. The wire Is 75 yards long- and of J^-inch steel. A trolley wheel waa made from an old sewing machine. A pair of small blocks hook on to the trolley, also a hook underneath for the milk: can. The wire is drawn taut to clear the ground in the center where a. •wire naturally sags.

Some time ag-o there was a dance IB a Canadian settlement for the benefit of the settlers and their wives. Most of the married ladies had babies with them, whose noisy perversity required too much attention to allow the ladies the full swing of their soul's pleasure in the dance. So a jinmbcr of young men present gallantly volunteered to watch over the refractory infants, so that their mothers could Indulge without let or hindrance in tho sweets of the "light fantastic" exercise. Tie gallant offer was readily and confidingly accepted, but no sooner ha4 the women loft their dear charges t» the care of those mischievous young rascals than they commenced stuffing •ihe infants, changing the clothing and giving one the apparel of another until they were transmogrified. The dance and the music continued into the "woo sma" hours" and then it was time to go home. Tho lights wero lowered and each mother hurriedly took a baby, in the dress of her own, and started for - home, which, .in man/ instances, was fifteen miles away. • Tho following morning there -was » prodigious row in tho settlement. Mothers discovered what had occurred, aud then commenced some of the tallest female pcdestrianism on record. Living as they did miles apart, it required two full days to unmix the'ba- bies and as many months to restore the mothers to their naturally sweet dispositions. Those young men never venture into that settlement now. It wouldn't be safe. Price* of F«r»luj Bride*.
