~ 1 " *' " ' THE UPPEK DJiiS MO1NJS8; ALOONA. IOWA, WEDNESDAY, NOV. 4, 1891. to Pre**r»« i ing*nnity is stated dotted to A method—retired from th« HJOst Ancient past—of rendering fabrics proof Against the ravages of decay for nn Indefinite period, a process by which it Is Said, no matter how delicate the texture or color of the fabric may be, its long life is assured. H appears that the Inventor in this case, a Oerman chemist, bawd his experiments on the commonly known fact that the wonderful preservation characterizing tho headbands of Egyptian mummies is attributed to their having been impregnated with a kind of resin. Acting upon this assumption, experiments were made with the substance extracted from birch bark, with th« re- Adit that the green tar left after the oil tJsed in tanning fms boon extracted from the white bark of the birch tree yields a etibstance neither acid nor alkaloid; and this, In solution with alcohol, forms a liquid with a power of resisting, after once becoming dry, even the action of alcohol itself, nnd is alleged to possess the property—so long a desideratum—of rendering textile fabrics apparently imperishable, as fnr as decay is concerned, n peculiarly rnhmble property being also claimed for it, namely, a ready union with tho most delicate us well us brilliant colors.— New York Sun.

After disposing of their bundles and themselves on the scats, two of them filarted desperately at work to open tho ixxiketbooks that they carried in their hands, Neither succeeded to any extent, and the red hairod conductor waited and winked at a cross eyed passenger in order to noto for future reference how a cross eyed man winks. Meanwhile each of tho womon had grasped the other's arm and exclaimed: "Don't, dour, I have change." The third woman said nothing, and tho conductor puuHud in front of the trio for his fare.

Infantry, of conrao, constitutes tho main body of all modurn armies, and by the quality of its infantry an army must be judged. Tho capacity of Americans to inako excellent soldiers was provud in tho war beyond u question. That hundreds of thousands of men, most of them entirely unacquainted with the elements even of disclplinu and drill, wore trims- formed in BO brief it period into officers and soldiers was certainly ono of tho wonders of our time. But the matorial •was in the main of tho best, tho dosiro to muster tho now trado well nigh universal and very strong, and thovo wero from tho beginning ihany opportunities for practising what had boon learned, Tho armies of 1802 woro far and away Huporibr to tho levies of 1801. Tho arm- ion of ltt(5!l wero decidedly superior to tlioso of 18*12. But in 180!) it is probable that tho highest point of efficiency was reached in both tho Federal and Confederate armtoH in Urn east, and certainly in tho western army of tho Confederacy. —John 0. Hopes in Scribnor's. Hint* fur Tnivolorn. Nausea, from tin- motion of tho cars, may bo prevented in tho following way: Take a sheet of writing paper largo enough to cover, both the cheat and ntomaoh, aud put; it on under tho clothing next to the person, If one sheet is not largo enough panto I ho edges of two or three together, for tho chest and Htomuoh must bo well covered, Wear the paper thus ua long as you are traveling, und change it every day if your journey in a long one. Those who have tried it say that It is a perfect defense. Those to whom tho term "sleeper" is a hollow mockery may profit by the ex- IMirienco of salesmen and others who travel frequently, and have tho bod made up with the pillow toward tho locomotive. Just why this should make Bleep easier is not explained, but tho plan is highly recommended.—Ladies' Home Journal. A Kftrnrlte for the Winter Monthm-tln Yon Wonder What it I*? P. W.
