There are divers ways of employ

but none more attractive than the
idea exploited In the accompanying

, home. The core, A, Fig. 1, is con-
ctructed In the usual manner with
small soft Iron wire to make a bun
dle about three-sixteenths of an inch in
diameter and about two luches long.
The coll ends are made from card
board about one Inch in diameter with
three-slxteenths lnch hole In the cen
ter. When cutting the bole, cut it
as shown In Fig. 2, so as to leave four
small pieces that can be bent out,
leaving the projections as shown.
After wrapping throe or four turns of
paper around the bundle of wires the
cardboard ends are put on with the
projections inside, so the colls of
wire, will hold them In place. About
70 turns of No. 24 double-covered mag
net wire is first placed on the core
for the primary and then 1,500 turns
of No. 32 or 34 double-covered wire
is wrapped on top of the primary for
the secondary. Sufficient length of
wire must be lort outslda from each
end of the vibrator directly opposite
tlons. The vibrator, B. Fig. 1, and
the Btipport. C, are made from thin
spring steel about one-eighth Inch
wide, bent as shown and securely fast
ened to the cardboard end of the coil.
The armature is tnnde from a soft
piece of Iron about three-sixteenths-inch
In diameter and threo-slxteenths-inch
thick, which is soldered to the

the African lady encourages it, for she

Obuwus and the lower class of pagan
tribes In the Interior there Is very
little form of marriage. As soon as
a man has the means he pays the
parents what they want in the shape
of goats, cows, beads, money, and

A CHEMICAL FACTORY
The Chemical Products of the Human
In the presence of the great nerv
ous system physicians are now Ilka
prospuctors In the Kloudlke region. A
faw fine nuggets have already been
collected which prove that they come
from rich velut In the mountains
around, and no one knows how soon
rome voin In them may be struck
which, followed up, will yield much
gold. A specimen of these golden ad

Sympathetic actually makes drugs, or
true medicine, whose presence in tho
blood is essential to life.
One of these Is now sold over tho
counter like any other drug. The ori
gin of It is from a twig of the renal
(kidney) sympathetic plexus becom
ing at a certain early stage of devel
opment rolled on itself like a ball of
twine. In time it breaks off from Its
parent stem, and, being enclosed In a
capsule, adheres to the top of the
kidney as a separate gland called the
adrenal gland. These adrenals add
nn Internal secretion to the blood
whose active principle has been found '
ti bo a definite chemical substance,
only 1-S00 of a grain of which will un
comfortably raise the pressure of a
man's blood In all the arteries of his
body. This adrenalin, as it Is called.
Is a new medicine with many valuable
properties, but It is Itself of such
purely chemical composition that sub
Ftances like It can now be made arti
ficially, like artificial indigo.
About two tablespoonfuls of a bit
ter salt like Epsom salts is dally
manufactured by the liver, and then
can bo extracted from the bile. The
bases of this salt, called taurln, was
fifty-two years ago supposed by the
eminent English chemist, Bence
Jones, to be like a veritable animal
quinine, because he found that the
taurln of the guinea pig gave both all
the different chemical reactions of
quinine and its spectroscopic lines as
well. This substance, therefore, he
regarded as our natural protective
agent against invasions of the blood
by micro-organisms. Since then this
theory has been considerably modi
fed by tho discovery of numerous
other drugs manufactured In the body
which, because they can combine
with acids and form salts, are called
alkaloids, some of them, however, be
ing powerful poisons. It is now, gen
erally agreed among physiological
chemists that we dally manufacture
enough poison in our alllmentary ca
nal to kill us before the day is over
were It not that these poisons are
neutralized by the liver and other or
gans before they can enter the blood
and thus reach the brain and other
vital parts of tho nervous system.
Magic and Poison Rings.
The ring began when man thrust
his finger through a hole in a pretty
shell, aud later learned to make rings
of Jut. The ring Is very magical.
Lord Ruthven, who helped to kill Rlc
cio, gave Queen Mary a rlug which
vaa sovran against poison, and she
generously replied with the present
of her father's wonderful jewelled
dagger, of French work, uo longer In
existence. Whether Ruthven tooled
with this magnificent weapon in the
affair of Rlccio or used a cheaper arti
cle Is uncertain. At all events, Mary
based on the ring that was an antidote
lo poison a charge of sorcery Against
I'.-thven. The Judges of Jeanne d'
Aic regarded with much suspicion her
liulu ring of base metal, a gift from
l.cr parents, Inscribed with the sacred
names Jesus Maria.
U was usual to touch the relics of
saints with lings; Jeanne d'Arc said
that her ring had touched the body of
tit. Catherine, whether she meant of
the actual saint or a relic of the saint,
brought from Sinai to Fierbois. The
ring might contain a relic, or, later, a
miniature. I fear that I do not be
lieve in the virtues or vices of poison
lings. Our ancestors practically knew
uo poison but arsenic, and Carthagin
ian science can scarcely have enabled
Hannibal to poison himself with a
Urug contained under the stone of a
White Lettuce and Green Cabbage.
"There is a curious difference,"
cays a gentleman of St. Louis who
speiiigV large part of the year In Eng
lund.AQjetween the English and our
selves in the way of growing cabbage
and lettuce for the table. With us the
cabbage is encouraged to form a head,
and when the leaves show a disposi
tion to spread the gardeners some
times tie a string around the clump
to make the leaves grow together. In
Lngland, on the other hand, the ef
forts of the growers are directed to
ward keeping cabbage green, and thejr
pull the leaves apart so as to expose
all portions to the light and give them
u dark, rich color.
"We like our lettuce green, but the
English want theirs headed up and
blanched, so as to have It aa white as
our cabbage, In other words, they sim
ply reverse our practice, and Instead
of white cabbage and green lettuce
they like green cabbage and white
lettuce. Of course It Is only a mat

How Mary Stuart Looked.
How did that fascinating witch of
all time, Mary Stuart, really look?
Andrew Lang thinks he knows. In
the London Academy he says: "Mary

thin arched eyebrows, wide apart, a
lofty brow, bright russet hair, red
hasel eyes, long and narrow, with
heavy white eyelids, a subtle mouth
