We do not talk Sewing Machines very often, the fact
being that our machines do their own talking, and
sales are ever on the increase. However,
I near, and as inquiries for these celebrated machines
ot ours are more numerons than they have been in a
long time, we have come to the conclusion that the
people ought to know something about them.
Are not of the regular Department Store pattern. We
challenge the trade to produce a better raachi ne,viewed
..from any standpoint you will, than we offer. Its cabi
net work speaks for itself at a glsuce, but what is of
more importance is
It is made by the largest and best known firm in the
world, and is a duplicate of their best machine in

you get it here for about forty per cent, of what it will
cost if you insist on having the name otherwise there
is no differeuco. If in the market for a machine, bring

Falcon Inland, which early hist year
was reported to have completely tlls
appp.ared hoenath the waves of tho
Pacific, Is arjaln showing Its tlat sur
face above the water. Tnc life history
of this spec!: of liiml has been unusual
and Interesting. A cable dispatch from
Kuropci printed In April last year said
that after a brief life of fourteen yeats
Falcon Island had ceased to exist. It
was thought that no trace of It would
ever be seen again. Hut Mr. Vosslon.
tho consul general of Trance In the
Tonga group, announces that Com
mandant navcuhlll, of the cruiser Por
poise has returned to those Islands
from a cruise In the Pacific with the
news of the rc-emrrgence of Falcon
Island. lie; says that tho highest part
of the Island Is now about sixteen ieet
above sea level.
The Island was formed by a great
volcanic eruption at the bottom of the
soa In 1SS5. It took the waves and
storms of tho ocean fourteen yeats en
tirely to obliterate It. Mr. J. J. Lister,
who visited tho island a short time be
fore It disappeared, said that It was
rapidly being torn to pieces by the
action of thej waves. Unless a freih
volcanic outburst occurred ho thought
tt would soon disappear. His predic
tion came true and a steamer that vis
ited tho place about tho beginning of
last year reported that not a trace of
it was lo be found above the water
The island was built up In the neigh
borhood ot the Tonga group about
thirty-live miles from tho Island of To
fooa, A sttbmailne volcano had reared
from the bottom of the ocean a mighty
mass of ejecta and on this foundation
rested the outpourings which rose
abovo thn water. The Island consisted
of two distinct parts. One of them
was a hill of gentle slopo and wide
babe, whoso height was lT-Ms feet. On
one side the hill ended abruptly In a
tliff, whose base was washed by the
seat at high water. Tho other part of
the Island was a flat, extendi!)

Tho correctness of Ills original Infer
ence has now been placed beyond
The lake known to earlier observers
ha.s now disappeared, und Its dry bed
Is strewn with shells nnd other organ
isms which had lived In Its waters.
Hut a. system of new lakes has been
formed around tho old basin, which
Dr. Sven Hedln has explored and map
ped. The Tarlm basin Is a barren and
dry land, a region of traveling waves
of desert sand. All this ttact has been
drying up. probably continuously,
even In historic times. The same thing
Is true of western as well as eastern
Turkestan. Lake Ualkhash Is disap

Its area has been greatly diminished
during the present century, and those
who dwell by Its shores assert that
Its level Is lowered at the rate of a
foot In every live years. Hut the same
thing Is true of the Syr Darla and the
Amu Darla and the Aral Sea, Into
which their waters arc emptied.
Ill fact, the whole drainage basin of
this sea and of the Caspian Is under
going desiccation, slow but sure. These
two seas, with many minor salt lakes,
are but polos left In the deeper hol
lows of a great ocean by which the
Mediterranean was extended into the '
heart of Asia. There arc banks of
dead senshells where once tho waves
weie breaking: thete are dry steppes
whero onco the herbage was green and
forests tlmulshcd. The fact Is cer
tain, but the causes not easy to ells
cover. The climate must be changing,
not in this or that locality, but over a
broad and extensive zone, which runs
with little interruption from northern
Africa to tho eastern cntl of the desert
of Gobi. A slmll.11- change has oc
curred In the new world. The Great
Salt Lake of Utah Is but a remnant
of a vastly greater sheet of fresh water
which onco set a river to tho Pacific.

Pour a tablt-poonful ot ammonia Into
the water, fter about eight minutes
soaking In this, spray or sponge tho
skin with cold water quickly and tub
