Upder the above name the Retort """Stove Company, Oapt. R. \V- GroeSbecEr president, announces that they fire having tkeir initial stoves constructed. The · matter has been frequently discussed in these columns, but as the successful consummation of ' the idea meaue so much to the Missouri slope it-is proper to state the grounds iJpou which they rely fof a · successful issue to the enterprise. The' Harkins device* aa roughly applied to a common cook stove has now beeii in use nearly a year. In that time it has been frequently tested, and the saving it effects in the-lise of all kiuds of coal can, it is believed, be safely placed at 25 per cent, ""its must profound feature, however, is iu its admirabje adaptation to the buniiug o f - l i g n i t e cofci, to ·gives a value at least doume that of its ' present rating as fuel The significance, of t h i s fact alone is best understotfU when we consider that the lignite deposit e. with little doubt, exceed iB'\»aiiity tlie true coals of this c.oun'try, that tlioy-- are more widely distributed and that the . question of butter--'utilizing them, is one great and growing urgency. The comfort of the homes and industrial development of the p u p i i l a t i i m occupying and to 'occupy by far - t h e greater part of t h i s continent, ar.e largely dependent upon t h e i r b e l t e r use. While lignite closely approaches the true bituminous coals iu appearauce, analysis and u t i l i t y , the one persistent characteristic which detracts . f r o m its value is a tendency to disintegrate under heat into a One, compact mass, thus excluding the air aud checking what otherwise would he H very free aud effective combustion. While b u r n i n g with great fierceness and waste at one moment,'it will smother the next, a n d . demanding .constant attention, it becomes a tax upon - v ,±he,.rjatieuce and the purse alike. Hence it may be safety allirrued that au economic and satisfactory use of lignite will never be attained iu tty. open hearth, or any stove now available to the public. In proof of this H is suflieieut to state -the fact that the government supplies, at · great expense-, our military ]«ists w i t h Pennsylvania coals when lignite coal in inexhaustible quantities, is f o u n d on and · near the reservations where these posts are located. Kismarck lies against the lignite beds, yet she imports eastern co«ijs for commoU uses. · That science would come to the relief , of the situation has been a hope hereto- fore_yainly entertained. Now, however, the Harkins system points the way to n realization of that hope. Liguiie must be retorted, in' othef words, converted into fuel gas. Certain it is the piinciple of the retort and that of the hot air blast ,_ as simple and admirably applied in the Harkins patents, can alone explain the good results therewith "obtained, not only in using lignite but increasing~itie -* efficiency of all other coals. lignite used in this system makes a beautiful, · effective, lasting and economical fire, and . · one which requires no more atteniiou '.. than-the bebt bituminous coal. Such a ' j result has never before been reached/ It ' means that vast regions heretofore dependent upon an inefficient and in-ev'ery \vay unsatisfactory fuel \nll now find themselves favored ,,with a fuel as cheap as the-cheapest,efllcient in its application and especially desirable because of as great freedom from black smoke as is wood or anthracite coal. --Ti p porannnl iptiipf from the- Captain.

As the girls never tale handkerchiefs o'V purses out of the bags, or in fact open them at all, many persons wonder what the saclrels contain.

When the bag seems heavy it is equally certain t h a t the bearer .has been sllting'up the night before working hard to catch up with her correspondence or copying.

Mother. When'the Japanese princes \yere in Philadelphia at tho time of the Centennial exhibition an American gentleman, addn«!*- ing the son of i high officer of the Japanese empire, asked h i m , "What do you thiiik of your mother!'" "You are the first person in America who has atkwl that question," SJ'id the- Japanese as his eyes filled with tears aud his voice manifested his emotion: "why do you ask it ?" ' "Because," said the other, "the reply to such a question throws a strong light on the domestic life and family ties of a people, as well as on the personal character of its i n d i v i d u a l citizens, and on the morals and customs and goveru'tnent" of the na-- tiou." "Well." said the Japanese, '1 will tell you. Since I left home my mother has, every week, regularlywritton me a long letter, t e l l i n g - a b o u t , everything in the f a m i l y and at home; uud every week, in the same way, I have written to her, telling her of a l l my movements, and of what I see and heat-' and do.

One of the most simple yet puzzling tricks w h i c h may bftllhttstraR-d by the figures on the face of a watch is qnlled i'The (;llarrn«l Circle." It is sometimes known as "The M'ind Reader." All the ffSraphef" nalia required is a sheet of paper and a pencil. On the paper make a circle of the figures'. , . ' The trick is to tell any number in the circle thought of by another person. This is how if is done: Aftey a number has been selected by"your friend, iusk him to iuhl one to it w h e n , you strike;-the paper. Then you continue the striking and he the counting' until twenty iiv.£eached. Then yotf will be on the number he has chosen. BISMAKVlf AEBIVE.

Care must bo taken, however, in .hitting the figures to be sure that on the eighth stroke you touch twelve, and then move around the circle to the left, touching each number in regular order. It is an unfailing source of mystifying amusement. It can be made more con fusing by distributing the first seven strokes around the circle promiscuously, but do not fail to touch twelve on the eighth and proceed as directed.--New York Herald. .3: A T T E N T I O N IB directed to tho Wisronsln Central ^" f -^ thfl direct roate to and from Milwaukee, ( M*t," and all points east and eontb.
