A MOVING PICTURE FEAT.

You'd bo surprised to know how re
sourceful some of tho photographer
aro today. There Is n film which hns
lately been sent out nil over tho coun
try that marks tho climnx In the art
of motion plcturo faking. I don't hc
llcvo ono man In a thousand who sees
It will havo the least Idea how It wns
done. It represents the flight of the
children of Israel and give tho scene
where Moses waved his wnnd and the
Red sea parted.
Tho man who took tho picture spent
twelve hours on tho Rod sea section
alone. Ho singled out a spot on the
shore of Long Island where there was
a sand bar which was out of water at
low tide and under water at high. Uo
started at high tide and took, say, a
score of pictures of the sea as It look
ed then. After fifteen minutes he reel
ed off nnothcr twenty, and tlfteen min
utes later ho did the same. Thus at
tho end of six hours he hnd a film
showing tho changes for every quarter
of an hour. At tho end of that time
the tide hnd receded so that the sand
bar could be seen. Then he called In
the supers and hnd them walk across
the bar while ho took their picture.
Thnt was only half of the work. Later
In the day when the tide began to rise
lie returned nnd began again to take
a few pictures every fifteen minutes.
At tho end of six hours tho water had
risen to where It wns when ho begun.
Wo had some doubt as to how I lie
film would come out. Wo dld.i'i know
whether the tide when photographed
that way -would give tho desired effect
of a sea parting and then closing up
ngntu. But It did. I don't know of
any lllm that looks more lifelike and
wonderful. The wnves seem to rush
apart for a minute and then back
again, just ns described in the Bible.

Oregon's Lake of the Clouds.
Ono of tho wonders of Oregon Is
Crater lake, a remarkable body of
deep water occupying the immense
crater of on extinct volcano In the Cas
cade mountains of thnt state, it has
been suggested that this mountain wns
once one of the loftiest In America,
but that ages ago its summit fell in.
The heart of the mountain is now oc
cupied by a lake of exquisitely blue
water whose greatest depth is 2,000
feet. The lake is six miles long by
about four and a half miles In width
and is completely encircled by pre
cipitous walls vnrrylng In height from
1,000 to 2,000 feet above the water.
The greatest elevation of the crater
rim above sea sevel Is 8,200 feet. Out
of the lake rises a volcanic cone called
Wizard Island, 840 feet high. When
It shall hnve been rendered easy of
access Crater lake is expected to rank
among the wonders of natural scen
ery with the Yellowstone and Yosem
ite valleys and tho Grand Canyon of
the Colorado. Ilarper's Weekly.
Passing of the Attic.
Nobody would deny the picturesque
ness of the old time attic. How many
stories havo been woven about it!
What tales of adventure and romance
have explored It for its pervasive
charm! And how many rainy hours
have we ourselves passed pleasantly
under its mysterious eaves! The farm
house attic sheds a peculiarly agree
able glow upon the childish memories
of the country bred man. He recnlls
its dangling ears of corn, its savory
herbs, Its sense of peace and other
worldllness. And yet It is well that
the attic, even the farmhouse attic,
should go, nnd it is going fast. In
place of It is coming the third story, a
light and airy part of tho house, an
integral portion of tlio whole estab
lishment. Providence Journal.

A Comet's Tail,
-i tall of a comet Is composed of
existing in a highly rarefied con
i n. Little particles of electricity,
a "d corpuscles or ions, are being
. H&.jntly given off at enormous speed
1- the sun. Each meteorite In tho
comet's head Is surrounded by Its own
rarefied atmosphere. When ono of
these little Ions strikes one of tho
molecules of gas In tho comet's at
mosphere It curries it off with it to
form tho tail. Tho electrical chargo
makes the gas luminous, and It Is by
this light and not by reflected sun
light that tho tall Is mado visible to
us. A comet's tall, therefore, seems
to bo merely a very extended aurora.

Picture Postals In 1777
A long forgotten book entitled "Al
manac do la Petite Posto do 1777" has
Just been discovered, showing that even
thus early tho picture postenrd flour
ished in France at least. Tho almanac
reports us follows: "Domanlson, the
printer, has Introduced pictorial cards
containing room for short announce

Why Wo Men Walt on Women?
Chivalrous Instinct In Man
Impels Him to Pass Through
Three Stages When Confront
ed with Woman.
Irreverent persons suggest that
man's only object In life is to plenso
woman and to serve her. Slightly ex
aggerated Is thlB statement, pcrhnps;
yet there must ho some truth at tho
bottom of It. Otherwise, why Bhould
man w.iit on womnn at all? Why tako
pleuwuro in being agreeable to her?
Why go out of his way to assist her,
In othor words, why should he bo
C hivnlry Is the expression of man's
real. Instinctive deference for woman.
Although, like other Instinctive feel
ings, it Is being modified or rooted up
by education nnd civilization, the chiv
alrous Instinct nevertheless still
mokos Itself felt in modern man. It
impels him, when confronted with
woman, to paps through three differ
ent stnges. In the first one ho strives
to attract woman's attention; In tho
second to please her; finally, to servo
Tho unconcerned are highly divert
ed lv the first. There Is no end to tho
tl. a mnn will do to nttract worn
ai.'z attention. Nothing is too absurd.
Oao man found It necessary to spoil
his patont-leather shoos. He was be
ing rowed across n lake when a girl
passed by in her ennoe. Without a
moment's hesitation he plunged both
feet Into the rippling water, letting
thorn dangle there, stupidly.
Other men use other methods;
somo Imagine themselves the proud
possessors of a voice and exorcise it;
others whistle out of tune or twirl
their mustaches. Still others grow
disconcerted and forget where they

So much for the desire of being
noticed. When it comes to pleasing
women men are more particular. They
then strive for personal perfection.
Tho intellectual ones go about with
poetry in their breast pockets and
learn it by heart, ready to repeat it
at tho first occasion. Or they dabble
into art or literature or some "Ism"
in order to acquire the correct pose.

Unique Soap Holder.
A peculiar contrivance, termed a
soap holding device, is a recent inven-1
tion of a Chicago man. Its extremely
simple construction Is shown In the
accompanying illustration. It com
prises a supporting arm, to which la
suspended a chain and clamp, car
rying a cake of soap. Obviously the
supporting arm is attached to the
washbasin so that tho suspended cake
of soap will be directly over the wa
tor. The supporting arm Is not sta
tionary, but Is pivoted, in order that
Uie soap can be dipped down into the
water when necessary. The sanitary
advantages of this soap-holder will be
apparent at once. It does away with
tho ordinary Bllmy receptacle employ
ed for holding the soap. Tho soap
hangs In a position of best advantngo
to the user. Soap of any description
can bo used, as tho supporting pin can
easily bo pushed Into position. Wash
Travelling Milk Bottles.
When travelling with an infant tho
question of warm milk is a serious
one, as cold milk often causes colic.
Place a flannel cloth in tho bottom
and nround the sides of a satchel or
covered basket On this lay a hot
water bag full of hot water. Fill the
required number of nursing bottleB
and put a fresh nipple on each ono
over tho cork. (These corks must not
he forgotten at feeding time.) Lay
the bottles on tho bag and cover with
tinothor bus filled with hot water.
Placo a thick flannel over this, and the
milk will keep warm all day. If too
hot, a uot,tle may bo cooled at the wa
ter cooler in the train or taken out of
the satchel an hour boforo using. If
this method is followed there will bo
no sour nipples and uo disagreeable
washing, as each bottle may be laid
asido after being used.

more than ever popular this spring.

brown seal, with machine stitched edges
and a deep square llnp. The oblong
purse bag Is of green lizard, mounted
with gold. The matinee bag of cloth
of gold, mounted on old silver, has a
silver chain handle, decorated with
black silk tassels, and at the lower
edso of the picture is an aeroplane
bag of brown nlllgator, with a self
covered frame and a strap handle. It
has a lining of glace kid and a glace
kid covered vanity equipment.
The Graceful Curve.
The keenly observant will take note
of tho subtle way In which the pain
fully straight lines of last season have
been changed into graceful curves.
The new conts are far removed
from tho cut that, predominated In the
autumn and early winter models.
Curved scams arc being Introduced,
and variations of the lapels, fastenings
nnd lower lines are very noticeable.
Flounces and plaltings hnve Invaded
tho realm of afternoon and evening
costumes, while a decided fullness at
the waist is evident.
The mascullue coat sleeve is giving
place to the slightly full shape of the
coming jacket, and capes are actually
promised for the attainment of the
rounded effect. It is probable that the
heroic attempts of femininity to keep
down tho avoirdupois may be allowed
to lapse, although it is hardly neces
sary to add that the appreciation for
curved lines Is not likely to be mani
fested with any startling celerity.
It is true that thero is a swinging
of tho pendulum in tho opposite direc
tion. Womauklnd must accept the
verdict against the straight line and
adapt just enough of tho curves to ap
proximate the golden mean.
Two Piece Sack.
With spring's arrival ono Is apt to
flud that the comfortable little wash
able dressing sack has been over
looked, and the first warm days find
us either sweltering In tho wintei's
leftovers or sporting the faded unrlb
boned ones of' a preceding summer.
Cropon at its thinnest and In white
or faintly tinted colorings makes an
ideal lounging jacket, as it is easily
laundered and docs not even require
Ironing. There Is a pattern with front
and back cut in one, necessitating, of
course, a seam cut down the center
of the back and one under each arm,
that is easily put together and quickly
made. Its edges are hemmed all
around. The seams under the arms
are closed only to the waist line, and
the back seam also is left open at its
lower edge for added comfort about
the hips. Its final finish is n narrow
edging of liuen or Valenciennes lace,
aud a charming garment Is made in
a comparatively short time aud ut a
very moderate cost.
Two Spring Suits.
Ono of tho new coats and skirts de
cidedly smurt is in a charming shade
of dull "box" trrceu braided very nar
rowly with black in many Hues, with
rows of tiny black braided buttons
closely set iu groups In between. Au
other coat aud skirt, though possessed
of pluln panel front and buck, has
quite a noticeable amount of fullness
ut tho sides. Tho feature of tnls suit
is tho arrangement of more and many
small buttons, which aro arranged in
circles where tho enormous button of
last season would have been. This Is
not especially utilitarian, but it is u

America and Art.
America will still remain the groat
buyer of tho finest and tnost costly
things, tho prices of which nro set by
the competition Of American fortunes,
and these nlone. Nobody In Europe
has yet dreamed of paying for a Van
Dyck or a Itcmbrandt tho prices that
havo been given, ns a matter of course,
during tho last two years by a tram
way magnate in Philadelphia and a
steel mngnato and a dry goods mag
nate In Fifth avenue. Twice only, by
a gigantic effort, a public subscription
In England hns defeated them and
their brethren of whom there nre at
least a dozen In tho case of the Ve
lasquez mid tho Holbein. But such ex
ertions can only be made at long in
tervals, and It Is very rarely that a
government can bo expected to take
the burden upon Itself. The lesson of
the Yerkes sale will probably be that
It will be easy enough to buy back
moderately good things at perhaps less
than tho American collector has paid
for them, but pictures like the llches

Halloa C-nct an Opportunity.
The closj t Jlalley's comet will conic

010,000 miles. On its last visit. In 183.".,
It approached as close as 5,000,000, but
at that time tho earth was not in di
rect lino with it nnd tho sun, conse
quently its tall was not streaming to
ward us. Astronomers hope that this
visit of tho comet will enable them to
determine absolutely the size of the
nucleus nnd its composition. Comets
arc composed of three parts the nu
cleus, tho bend aud the tall. The nu
cleus is the center of the head, and It
Is known that tho head is of tho same
composition as the tall, only denser.
When comets pass between tho earth
and stnrs It is possible to see tho stars
through both the tall and tho head,
which is ono proof that both are trans
parent, but it has never happened that
tho nucleus of a comet has been in
such position between the earth and
a star that the astronomers could tell
whether or not the star would show
through the nucleus as well as through
the head. Popular Mechanics.
Can You Speak "Ido?"
An alleged Improvement upon the
now widely known International lan
guage Esperanto is the result of the
labors of a subcommittee appointed by
the international committee on arti
ficial languages which met In Paris
under the presidency of the famous
chemist Ostwald In 1007. This new
lnterlanguago is called Ido. It has
Its dictionaries, grammars and read

readers of eight or nine existing lan
guages. It has been described as a
"quintessence of European languages,"
and its advocates claim that it is
simpler and easier to learn than Es

it. Professor Otto Jespersen says it
is a "purified Esperanto, freed from
