Don't make tho mistake they did,
but Inquire about tho water and milk
supply of the placo you expect to
visit. If you have small children
with you, It is especially important
that you bo particular about tho
milk. Dirty milk may bring tho
germs of tuberculosis to tho child
who is very susceptible to that dis

boarding house or the hotel whoro
you will spend your vacation as you
would be in renting or buying a

MACHINE THAT WALKS
TO ITS OWN WORK.
At Whitby, in Yorkshire, may bo
seen an ingenious device specially de
signed for carrying out marine work.
It is nothing less than a traveling
stage, so devised that It can be made
to walk out to Its work and return to
shore again when desired. It is now
being used for the construction of
concrete breakwaters and is the In
vention of the engineers carrying out
this work, Messrs. W. iHill & Co.
Like many other contrivances, it is
absurdly simple, and the wonder Is
that the Idea has never been con
Tho machine has eight legs and
feet, four of which are used at a time
when in motion. There are two mas
sive steel framework structures, one
inside the other, the outer being
square and the inner rectangular, tho
latter being somewhat smaller than
the other. The legs, comprising
stout members, which can be moved
up and down vertically for a consid
erable distance, are fitted at the
corners of each stage and are point
ed at the lower end to secure a firm
grip upon the rocky seabed.
The walking action Is secured as
follows: The outer frame has its
front legs lowered until the spuds or
feet secure a grip upon tho seabed.
The legs of the Inner stago are than
raised to clear all obstructions when
the stage is moved forward tho full
extent of Its travel, which brings it
against the forward end of the outer
stage, when Its legs are lowered to
the ground. Tho legs of the outer
stago aro now elevated vertically so
that the latter rests upon the former.
Tho outer stago is now moved for
ward until tho Inner stago is brought
Into contact with the rear end of tho
outer stage. The legs of the last
named aro then lowered, those of tho
inner stage raised, and tho same cy
cle of operations is repeated. By this
alternate movement of the inner and
outer stages tho machine proceeds to
its work, and when tho site of op
erations is at last gained the whole
of the eight feet are caused to rest
upon tho seabed to hold tho struc
The "walking man" is quite a mas
sive affair. The outer frame Is 4S
1-2 feet square, and it stands 33
feet high from tho bottom of the
spuds to tho working deck level.
Tho Inner stago Is 29 1-2 by 40 1-4
feet. The result is that the machine
can make a forward stride of about
ten feet, while tho inner stago can
move sideways for about three feet.
The feet aro raised and lowered by
screw gearing driven by electric mo
tors. A complete movement for
ward can bo effected In fifteen min
utes. It has been found that, with this
traveling stage, work can be con
tinued in the roughest weather. In
deed, It was heavy seas experienced
at Peterhead that led to its inven
tion. Ono is now working for tho
admiralty at Dover and has exper
ienced some very heavy seas.
THE UTILIZATION OF
THE CHESTNUT THEE.
' W ll lift flirt n VAFH rre r ntito n-n nn

unpleasant fact that a comparatively
new forest enemy threatens to exter
minate our wealth of chestnut trees,
there are but a small proportion who
are familiar with tho wholesale de
struction of trees that has been oc
casioned by tho chestnut treo blight.
Since thousands of trees have al
ready been killed, and thousands of
others aro In a hopelessly diseased
condition, necessitating their cutting
down, tho great economic question
of converting such trees Into market
able products at fair prices con
fronts the owners.
Tho Pennsylvania Chestnut Treo

ous inquiries bearing upon tho Im
portant question of marketing
chestnut products, and as n result, a
special Investigation nto tho subjoct
was commonced In order that parties
interested could bo furnished with

Tho Elderly Woman.
During the past few years It has
been noticeable that thero are
no longer any "middle-aged" women.
This applies somewhat to fashions,
which are said to be designed only
for tho young. Since this Is true,
to a certain extent, it seems a good
plan to take modern styles and
adapt them to suit the individual
needs. There Is no woman, no mat
ter what her age, who likes to look
out of date.
During the summer there will be a
fancy for quaint fashions, and the
elderly woman can tako advantage
of these. For instance, there is the
fichu. As a drapery it is becoming
to any woman hetween the ages
of nineteen nnd ninety. Thero is
also tho trimmed skirt. Only a few
elderly women can wear plain skirts,
and tho others will rejoice this year
to learn that nearly all skirts are
being trimmed. Tho very short
woman can preserve her height by
running a panel down tho back of
the waist from neck to hem and still
find the drapery in the front quite
becoming if she is stout as well as
Ono of tho mistakes of the very
thin or the stout woman is to wear
closely fitting garments 'though it
is sometimes a difficult matter to
convince the latter typo of this
truth. The process of eliminating all
fullness can be overdone by tho
stout woman, and a suspicion of
drapery will always be more becom
ing than a smooth fit.
The latest Ideas In neckwear ire
just as becoming to tho elderly
woman as to tho young girl. She
should mako a point of wearing,
whenever possible, tho Huffy frill of
white tulle, banded with black vel
vet and sometimes described as a
This Is a late idea, and tho frills
can measure any width from four to
eight inches according to taste. Tho
proper proportions will bo ono Inch
of tho frill showing above and two
Inches below a band of black velvet
an Inch wido. Tho other widths will
bo in proportion. In case the neck
is vory thin and scrawny and tho
chest inclined to be flat, tho frills
are very becoming, while cuffs to
match aro allowed.
robably tho prettiest neck llnish
for the elderly woman Is an Incon
spicuous mvnlllerc or a very simple
brooch. It is especially good for a
generous figure, and goes well with
the frills. The fleshy woman should
not attempt ruffles at tho wrists, tho
turnback cuffs and bands being
more appropriate. The fat woman
can see a finish of threaded boadlng
for her summer frocks.
This should not be too narrow,
and It Is not an easy matter to apply
tho beads so as to Jook really well.
Tho neck of the dress ought to bo
cut well up to tho throat and fitted
smoothly, and tho beading can be
adjusted whllo tho dress is upon tho
wearer. Tho little point nt tho front
is more becoming than a square or a
Tho gray-haired woman may
choose almost any costumo and not
suffer Its effects, but by giving a lit

somo delicate color In tho proper
shade and tho correct proportions.
