The newest heultli-Kiviiig discovery
Is called by its im-untor the tlienito
gen. It consists of a quilt containing
a coil of wire bunt in t tie fashion of a
gridiron, inclosed in insulating and
non-conducting material, and imbed
ded in cotton, wool or oilier soft sub
stance with a silk or woolen covering.
The resistance ollered by the coil to the
How of an electric current through the
wire produces heat in the same way
that heat and eventually litrht are pro
duced in the filament of the glow
lamp. A uniform temperature of about
lot) degrees Fahrenheit is thus main
tained; but in the event of the tem
perature rising beyoud that point from
Increase of pressure in the electric
mains, a fuse instantly melts and au
tomatically shuts oil' the current. The
quilt niiry'bo attached to ordinary in
candescent lamp terminals. In de
scribing this device London Lancet
says that this most important medical
use of such an invention would be on
the operating table, where, in leugth
eued operations or in those attended
with hemorrhage, where artificial
means to sustain the patient's temper
ature are required, blankets and hot
water are a decided nuisance. J n such
cases these quilts would be invaluable
as a soft, dry, warm and convenient
covering. Again, in cases of chronic
rheumatism, luinbagoor senile slowness
of circulation, such an appliance would
le useful. The thermogen is now re

Dr. Stotzor-Buetzer, in one of the
foreign medical reviews, writes as fol
lows on the medicinal and hygienic
properties of the apple: Apples eaten
immediately before bed time promote
the health generally. Jts dietical as
well as alimentary substance is of the
highest order. It contains more phos
phoric acid in an easily digestible com

product. It is (1 1 good brain food, (2)

Many Pittstonians and several
Serantonians remember H. It. How ley,
the artist, who boarded formally years
at the Eagle hotel in IMttston. Mr.
Howley is now in L'tica, N. Y., in ro
bust health. Years ago he was a vict
im of acute dyspepsia and siill'ered Un
told misery from indigestion. One
day his torture became so intolerable
that in sheer uesperation he seized a
huge beefsteak a thing unprecedented
plastered it over with mustard an
inch thick he hud never before looked
at mustard and swallowed the whole
conglomeration in a trice. Mr. Howley
no doubt expected this would bring on
a crisis, if not au undertaker. Nor was
he disappointed about the crisis. The
mustard and the beef steak formed
such an amicable alliance in his ali
mentaries that the demon dyspepsia
was fairly shamed into retreat. The
next day Mr. Howley repeated this
accidental prescription and added
mustard to his bread and potatoes as
well. The long and short of it was
that by the free use of mustard, he
knocked his dyspepsia out in less than
a .fortnight and could now introduce
iron wedges into his stomach without
feeling much the worse therefor. This
narrative may run counter to the tradi
tional teachings of hygiene, but it is
the sober truth, as Mr. Howlev will
himself attest.- And the point to it, if
mere is any point, is mac dyspep
tics often overdo the matter of "diet
ing," aud by their fussy abstemious
ness augumenl rather than relieve the
original trouble.
According to the directions of Dr.
Salmon, to sterilize milk, take a tin
pail and have made for it a false bot
tom perforated with holes and having
legs half an inch high to idloAy circula
tion of the water. The. bottle of milk
to be treated is set on this false bottom
aud the pail is Tilled with water until
it reaches the level of the surface of the
milk in the bottle. A hole may be
punched in the cover of the bottle, in
which a cork is inserted, and the ther
mometer is put through the cork so
that the bulb dips into the milk, and
the temperature can thus be watched
without removing the cover. This
water is then heated until the milk
readies a temperature of 155 degrees
Fahrenheit, when it is removed from
the heat and allowed to cool gradually.
A temperature of 150 degrees main
tained for half au hpur is sufficient to
destroy any gemis likely to bo present
in the milk, and it is found in prac
tice that raising the temperature to
155 degrees and their allowing it to
stand in the heated water until cool,
insures the proper temperature for the
required time. The Pasteur method is
practically the same the temperature
is raised to KiO degrees, kept there
about ten minutes, and the cooling
process is as rapid as possible, rather
than gradual. It is found that the lat
ter method makes the milk more easy
of digestion in the case of infants or
delicate persons. Either process in
mres the ridding of dangerous germs,
lud milk so prepared will keep usable
thirty-six hours.

The composing room towel has been
for years a favorite theme for satirical
allusion among those familiar with its
granolithic properties; but there are to
be seen in more than one Scran ton
restaurant a species of towel which
presses the dusky fabric of the print
shop hard for its honors. We allude to
the small snatches of bedraggled linen
which depend from hooks in front
of certain bars. If one of these could
only speak, what a tale of microbe
mixing and disease genu miscegena

with the moustache fresh from an ab

emergencies, a spare handkerchief. The

Do not read while riding on railway
trains. Give the eyes a rest. This
common practice of reading on the
cars is- most trying on those delicate
muscles that regulate the shape of the
eyes' lenses and so affect the focaliza
tion of the organ. The danger is great
est, of course, on those railroads whose
ballasting is imperfect and whose rails
are roughly laid, producing much jar
ring and consequent rapid changing of
the distance between the eye and the
paper. That "abominable headache"
common to travelers is many times
due to nothing else than this strain on
the muscles aud nerves of the eye.

The letter read before the North
Main Avenno Batnist church last Sun
day morning was very encouraging to
Dota pastor and people. It bri'-flv
aninmed up the work of the year. The
present memborship is 230; forty were
received into the church during the
year and twenty were dismissed. The
Sunday school is in a flourishing
oondition. and has an enrolled mem
bership of 200. The finances are
in good condition and all soci
eties connected with the church are
flourishing. Tho most interesting
item in the letter was the glad tidings
that the debt on tho church was wholly
removed. During Mr. Watkins' pre
vious pastorate, about two years ugo,
pledge wore taken from the members
that covered the dobt, which then
amounted to $3,000. These were not
paid in as rapidly ns anticipated be
cause of the pressure of poor times, bat
during the last year the pledges were
almost wholly redeemed and the debt
rt'movod. The pastor nnd members are
greatly pleased at tbs result and will in
ino near future hold a jubilee service,
at which the mortgage will be burned
and a season of rejoicing will be ob
served by tho church and congregation.
The people of the West Side will

The members of the Puritan Congre
gational chnrcli of Providence have
surprised their friends in the strenu
ous efforts they have made to ere".t the
commodious house of worship now oc
cupied by them. The vast majority of
the church are young Cambro-Ameri-cans,
and rilled with the push and pluck
characteristic of our people, they are re
solved not to flag In their efforts until
tho main entrance to the church will
be properly fixed, The expose of
building a retaining wall and placing
stone steps into position will amount
to hundreds of dollars. In order to se
cure fnnds they will bold a fair and
festival iu the fall. Tickets for the
same were issued this week, which
have been well received by the public.
It will be nooessary also, before tbo
winter sets in, to put in the church a
heating apparatus, which is another
obj-'ct for which the young peoplo are
working. Thoir enthusiasm and earn
estness desire success, and wa hope
thoir efforts will be properly rewarded.
At the close of tlm services on Sun

at the pier to bid friends adieu, the
muscular porters who are gathering

the vessel that is to be your home for
the next six or seven 'days, and the
misy seamen wiio are running to and
fro putting the last touches on her be
fore she starts out on a voyage that is
ns uncertain as is tno voyage ot lire,
all go to produce a feeling that words
are unable to describe.
It was my good fortune to be one of
the eighteen hundred souls that were
aboard the steamer Lucania when sho
sailed from Pier 40, North river, on
the twetity-eignt day ot last month
The rtuy was perfect. Old Sol never
shone brighter. Amidst the tooting of
whistles and the thousand cries of
"lion voyage! " we steamed down the
buy nnd started on a iourney that for
six days at least, perhaps forever who
on board could tell? would cut us
oil from all communication with the
busy world.
Jollity and mirth, however, reigned
supreme. Perhaps there were a few
who east one longing, lingering look
behind as they thought of the dangers
of the mighty deep and heaved a sigh
when there passed before tlieiu faces of
dear ones that had been lelt behind.
Hut this (piiekly lied and each one
seemed on one common purpose bent,
that being to getas inucii pleasure and
eiimymeut out ol tne trip as possible.
Among the prominent people on
hoard probably the best known were
II. (J. brick, or the Luruegie .steel com'
puny ; ex-Mayor Urace and family, of
Mew l ork; iiidwai'd htokes and i'ercy
A. Pyne, of the same city. The llrst
two days are spent in forming ac
(uaintances and after that everybody
knows everyone else and each one adds
his mite toward lessening what other
wise might lie a monotonous voyage.
We were fortunate in having several
good vocalists and elocutionists with
us, who aided us very materially iu
helping pass trie time.
From our city we had T. II. Jones,
the genial treasurer of the poor board
who at once became a favorite, and
many an hour sped rapidly by while
Tom was explaining the geological
conditions of the coal strata in the
Keystone state. Rev. W. S. Jones,
niistor of the First Welsh Rantist
church, was also a passenger, and his
knowledge ot literature and literary
characters made him a very interesting
conipauion. We also had a real live
prince with us. He was the sou of
King Arssuah, of the Vei people, in
Africa, and had been to America to be
educated. He spoke r;nglisli very ilu
ently and was the center of attraction
during the entire trip.
It is hard I v possible lor one who hat
not crossed the Atlantic to conceive of
the proportions of these mighty ves

indeed, a sight never to be lorgotteu
Tlio green hills in the distance and the
pretty httlo farms that lay inter
mingled among them, but which could
be seen very plainly by the aid of a
marine glass, made one think that it
was one of tho fairest spots on earth,

nearly a week 15y noon we were at
Queenstown, nt which place we land
ed four hundred of our passengers and
fifteen hundred bags of mail. Before
midnight we were in the Mersey and
within sight of Liverpool, but did not
succeed in getting landed until Satur
day morning.
The trip from the start to the finish
was ono of pleasure and enjoyment and
not one on board could be heard to ex
press dissatisfaction with the ollicers
or crew. It would not surprise me iu
the least to hear any moment of the
good vessel having gone to the '.jttom
for when I left her she was showered
with thanks, praise, and congratula
tions for having landed us safely, the
combined weight of which must cer
tainly exceeded her registered tonnage.
After having our baggage Inspected we
parted going iu all directions some to
China, others lo India, Africa, Rome,
Paris and London, the coal baron and
myself coming down Into little Wales
to rest up among the hills and vales
before su.rting for the continent.

Jleasure of hearing the Revs. Fred and

be assisted by their two brothers, all of
