He has Invented an egg shell whirb Is elastic and unbreakable. He has done away with Ilme as a diet for hens, and Instead feeds them with pulverised rublier mixed with cornmeal. This forms a rubber Dim around earh egg. and the sulphur contained In the egg vulranixcs the soft rubber Iuto hard¬ ness. It has been no easy task to keep tbe great Suez Canal from being choked hy tbe shirting sands, blown Into Its waters hy Ihe tropic winds. Thc^an- ngement of the canal, however, after long experiments with dllfprent plants, believes that It has found In the Casu- arlna tree an effective remedy against the sands. The Casuarlna grows to a consldernble height, wblle Its roots penetrate the soil to water sources deeply hlddpn; moreover. It thrives In Imth dry and boiuld climates. Included In the vessels under con¬ stnicllon for the British Navy are two ralher shallow draught twin-screw gunlmats, earh of wblch Is to have a length of ItM) feet, a beam of twenty and a half fept and a draught of two and a quarter foot. Thpy are to have a speed of tblrteen knots pnrli when completely pqulpped. and It is rpportod that they are Intended for service on the Chinese rivers. They are to be senl oul In flotable sections, tbe same as was done with tbe steamer built for the Belgian Congo expedition, In whirh SUnley look Ihe lead.

There sre eigh¬ teen slalM of pink Tennessee msrbie, earh one and a half Inches thick. There are forty-two double and triple pole switches, which range from 100 to 1000 amperes. There are seventy-elgbt circolt breakers snd msny meters, sll of wblch combine to make tbe board au example of mechanical ronstruc¬ tlon. Tbe copper required to connect (be generators or dynamos with dif¬ ferent switches and current breakers weighs over two tons and the tioard (imiplete as it will "tniid weiglis ten tonn. The lioard will rarry liilOO am¬ peres at 110 volts, equal to 10.000 six¬ teen candle power llght.^.

JAM THE NATIONAL LISH THREATENS TO DISPLACE ROAST BEEF ON ENGLISH TABLES. rhe British reople Ara the I.arsMt Coa- •¦¦Mrs of Jaai aad Marmslsdc t|i lb* World—Now aa Artlela or Itallr Coa- aaaiptioa by tba Kaaaaa. "English people are the largest con¬ sumers of 3am In the world," says James Boylp. American Consul at Liverpool. "It Is probably the fact tbat jam and not beef Is uow the na¬ tional dish of tbe Britisher—or, at any rate, jam (tucluding marmalade) runs bacon a close second. As tbe United States Is DOW supplying a large pro¬ portion of the Iieef and bacon con¬ sumed in England, she can olso, by proper methods, capture a great share of the trade In jam, preserves, etc., In this country. In order to secure, and particularly to hold, the trade, how¬ ever. It should nlways be kept In mind that Ihe English are'very dlsorlminat- Ing buyers. They want a good arti¬ cle, aod are prepared to pay a good price; and, as a rule, tbey are indiffer¬ ent as to tbe place of origin. It 's well known tbat nowhere In tbe Unit¬ ed States can better American beet and bacon be bought than cau lie bought tn '<:ngland. and many American visitors declare thai better American lieef can l>e had In Ix>ndon and Liverpool than can geu¬ erally lie obtained In New York or Chicago. However this may be, tt Is a fact that shippers of American beef to this markei understand that tbe must send over the very best 'n order lo compete with the home and colonial product - "Tbe English trade In jams, pre¬ serves, etc.. Is Increasing all the time. A grent revolution is going on In the English table, moro especially among the middle and working classes. Wbat were a few years ago expensive deli¬ cacies, fouud only on tbe tables of the well-to-do. are now to a great extent articles of daily consumption by the masses. Except so far as tbe very poor are concerned, It may be sail that bacon (geuerally wilb eggs) nud jam or marmalade, are on every Eng¬ lish breakfast table, and an almost universal 'sweet' (the English for de¬ sert) at lUDcbeon and diuner is a 'com¬ pote,' stew or tart, of which the cblef Ingredient Is preserved fruit." The aim of experts in preserving Ib bow to work fruit pulps with proper proportions of sugar into wbat are practically jam bricks. Many people who are not very old can readily recall bow housekeepers used to pride them selves upon tbe stiffness and flrmuesn of their damson, or cherry "cheeses." which could tie stamped out In fanci¬ ful forms witb a paatry cutler and which were not even sticky to tbe touch. This condition was obtained by ci.refully boiling the fruit syrups to exactly the right poI.it after pro¬ cesses of putting tbe fruit through flne sieves and bringing the sugar to candy. This, upon a wholesale scale, ts what American jam boilers are en¬ deavoring lo accomplish, aud many experiments In tbat cirectlon are now lielng carried out. Indeed, samples of "jam bricks" have lieen submitted to the war ofllcos for use of troops tn faraway stations. So far ns mince meat Is concerned, tb > problem bas been solved, and It is pc«slble now to oblain a hard, heavy cu 5 of two rr three Inches, from 'which u few chipped fragments muistcned lu wnter, milk or liquor, a minrc pie with good, old-fashioned flavor rau be quickly made. Some Idea of the magnitude of the system can be obtained from the fact Ihat a single order from a Loudo-i house amounted to twenty-eight tons of aiirlcot pulp from California, i'lums, plueapples, qutuces, apple-; and peaches are so largely utilized iu this way, and the latest triumph, it is claimed. Is thnt of being able to ship strawberries in the pulp. Willi the treatment of this material ou such a scale it is not mirprlslng that tbose wbo kuow the rllmatic adantagos of ('aiifornia for drying should advocate the carrying of pnlp preparation a atep further and endeavor to present Ihe Jam itself wlthinit the costly en- ruiubcrauces of old fushloued pack¬ ing. An English authority says: "As far ns dried fruits are courerned, it may lie noted thnt South Australia is the most formidable rival In the Eng- llfib market of the U: Ited Stnies, nnd tlint, III the opiulou of nu exceeding¬ ly competent expert, if the Australian uulonies and New Zealand would pay the same atteutlon tu parking and at¬ tractive appearance as is done In Ameriea. they wuuld easily hold their uwn in this departmeut. At tbe same tlmp. it is disquieting to learn that Amerirau sweets are coming Into this euuntry at the present time in suf¬ flcleut qiiantlties tu cause cunsider¬ able uneasiness to our uwn manufac¬ turers uf these dnlntits.

He in¬ vited the President to visit Cuba, to see for himself the rondltliins in the island, and I(>arn from routnrt with the Inhaliltauta of the love and atfer- tlon which llie ("ubani have for the United States, and their .ipprerlatlon of what has lieeu done for ihem liy this Government in tlieir stiuggle for freedom. Senor Cnpotc asked Ihe President to do somethiug for Ihe Culiaus upon an economic Ilue. especially In the mntler of reeiprocnl trade relations. He said that it was especially desirable to hnve something of tnia kind done liefore the next crop was harvested. In order thnt the Cubans might realize the advan¬ tages to tbem of closer political nnd economic relations with the United States. In reply the President said It was Impossible to settle the eciinonik' iiues¬ tlons until tbe iiiilltleal (iiicstlons were disposed of. He told the delegales lo first form their tiovernn. 'it. nnd then thpy would be lu a position to enter Into negotiations with the Uulted States as to trade lelnlluus. Senor Cupote responded that some¬ thing ought to lie done while the Cu¬ ban (Jovernment was forming. He Ihought that, while the United Stntes was exercising control, there might be arrajigetnents perfected similar to those under c inteniplntion by Ihe .Sec¬ retary of War in 1K98. wheu the (.ov- ernment first passed under control nf Ihe United Stntes. He tuld the Presi¬ dent that the (^ubnn Kepnlillc did not wish to be boru in poverty and rags, nud If It could not be wealthy, it would nt lenst prefer to hnve sniiiellilnR wlili which to supiKirt itself, und to have its people In prosperous rondltluiis. or with pi-os|iri-ous conditions before them. The President ngnin reverted to the fact that under tliu preseut ruudltlous. an the Secretary nf Wnr had ndvlsed thetn. he did not see huw It wns pos¬ silile to settle any economic questions before the (Julian (rovernment was formed. He woidd appoint Commis¬ sioners Immediately nfter a tJovern¬ ment was organized to negotiate with Himlliar Coinmlsslonersfrum the Cubau Oovemment for reeliirocnl trade rela¬ tions, and he believed ihnt the United States wnuld lie rendy to denl In a manner whicli would lie lienellclal to Imtli countries. He thanked the dele¬ gation for the Invltntlon to visit the Island, nnd told ihcm to assnrc the Cuban people nf his friendly interest In them ami his desire to see them contented and prosperous.

Estina together was a token of fellowship aaid hero sh.iws .lanua's perfecl ncunciiiatioo to (11 llia (tis^iplrs, "tjimon, son of Jo¬ nas." He does not call him Cephas, or Peter, the name He had given him, for hs had lost Ihr credit of hia atrenftli and sta¬ bility vhich those names sifnincd. 'dt thus sddressinc him it would the Biora af¬ fect him Sllll hriag viv.dly befors him kis denial. "Ixivest thou Me';" There wera aprriai peaions why this qurstion thoald b* put tn Peter. (1) Hr had denied his lotw Inr Christ and thrrc waa rrsson for Chriat to Buspert Ilis Inve. (2) He invst hara thnt love for Chriat is the thing most commendahle and the surest proof ot pea- itrnce. There ia a curious chaofe ol tmna here. and. if wc wnuld fully undsrstaad tins passagr.lit is necessary to call atten¬ tion to some of the delicate shades o( nieauing in the (.irrrk. which do act ap* pear in our Knglish IransUtiAns. ittta usca Ihe word Tove thrre times in His questions, and Peter uses it three times in hia anewerr; but in thr original the word ahirh Jesus uses in Hin nrst two qiM» tions (agapao) is a diilerrnt word from that which Prtrr usra (phiirn) <u all his answers. In thr third asking Jesus uses Peter's word. "More than thrse." That is. more than these nther discipiea lore Mr. Ilr had drrUred, "Though all men ahall he oflicndrd liecause of Thee, vet will I never br offended." Christ woaM bow hear his present testimony. Others think that by "more than thrar," Jesus meant the boat, nets and fish—in fact, his bosi- nrss. Whether Christ meant this or BO^ it sliould br rrnuHiiherrd that if our love for Christ is perfect, we will love Him more than wr Inve our mrtliljr rnss nasi nni "Thou knowcst that I love 'Thee." He rould not onlv profess love to Chriil^ bat hc could trll Him that He knew that,,tban was luvr in his heart. .He n-as coaloHM that ,Teaus knew that he loved Him, "Krrd My lambs." Thia is a commiarion to give spiritual fnod tn thr younfeat and wrakrst in thr flock of Chriat. 16, "Keed My shrep." Uu* H*«ses • Word whirh signiflrs to trad a flock, not only to fred. but to take care of, gaide, govrrn. defend, etc., hy which Ha aeema to inlimatc that it ia nnt sullicient merely tn offer thr bread nf life to the eangtagi- tinn nf the Ixird, but he muat take cart Hint thr shcrp he proncrly collected, at¬ tended to rrguiated and guided. 17, '"rhe third time." Thr three que*, linuK rould not hut recall the thrre denials. anil the form nf the last ouestiim eouM not Iiut vividly bring back the thought of thr failure nf prrsnnal devotion at the mo¬ ment of (rial. "I»vest thou Me?" "Thia time Jesus usrs Peter's word for lave. "Was grieved." Because He pressed tha qurslion the Ihird time and thua ealled at¬ lentinn to hia failure,, and beeaiue in rhauging the word he had used for lors He scrnird to imply a doubt of his love. It has been suggrated that Peter feared Irit Christ still saw aomething wnma in his heart that would lead to another nil. ''Thou knowrst all things." He waa sura of Christ's iMrfect knowledge, and humbly aiiprals to Him for proof of his lore. "Yeed My ahrep." Still another word ia asr J here by Christ to rrpresent the floek rommittrd tn Peter's rarr, whieh meana "Utile sheep;" "the sheephngt." the tan- drr and driioatc that nerdrd special ear*. The purpose of tbese queationa aeem* te have been, 1. To show Peter that Jean* knew his failures and heartily fon*T* thrm. 2.

To inpN** upon hin^4Jlat only in deep aad eariMat kive to Jesus could he do thia work. 18, "Verily, verity," Thea* words •¦- press thr truthfulness and unrksngsablih nrss nf what is to follow. "Wh*a thou wast young." etc. Peter mnat hava been almut middle life. He now went where he chose tn gn, hut Ihr time would eom* whrn he would be carried by others.

Dicky Wade, being a gardener, bated dogs profeaalonally, •Bd dM not keep one. He jnatlfled bla objectton to them by tbe terma In wbkh tbey are mentioned In the Bible, bat bla real reason was a profeaalonal one. So Sam bad no dog to lore.

"Ton's gattin' tu lilg bwoy for tbese doll, Sam," aald Dicky Wade. "For bwoy, ta 'tea no kind of play. Ef 'ee ded want gun, or boat, or swoonl, or apade. I'd not mind. Bnt dolla be not ttty for bwoys."
Sam only bagged tiulnerere—pro- aouBccd awlarer—ltUL.closer.
