The Effect ot Wind on TjtVi
Attention hns been called to tho very

ous inland bodies of wntcr. It is not
uunsnnl for tho residents in towns on

venienced provided a heavy wind blow-
ing on shoro continues for any length of
time. In tho Baltic fcca tho lovol has
been altered for upward of olglit fott.
Somotimcs tho water is blown out of a
chaunol leaving it almost dry. In one
instance a depression of six feet oc-
curred on ono side of a body of wntor
with n corresponding riso of six feet on

Chicago has a novel trade in owls
the supply coming to tho commission
morchants from tho farmers' boys in
tho nearby stato.v
The first owl which camo to Chicago
in this manner was sent na n venturo by
a farmer boy who had somehow man
god to entrap it alivo. It proved so un-
expectedly successful in ridding the
warehouse of rats and mioe having
been freed at night with the idea of
making nn experiment in this direction
that It was purchased by tht man In
whoso care it wns resting. Tho froedom
from rodent which it brought induced
ether commission men to look ont for
owls nnd from tho commission firms
tho Idcagradunllyspreod to the grocqre
butchers and mavkot keepers generally
of the city. Now n large percentage of
theso men keep nn owl down in the cel-
lar during the daylight nnd brlug it np
to tho store when darkness falls. It is
said that tho expenso and onto of main-
taining owls nro more than repaid by
thoir services in vanquishing the rati
and mloo. Tho owners nnd janitors of

A mothod of metallizing wood one
