NERVES of recruits in the British Army are saved by a practice rifle that fires a spot of light and makes no noise. The roar of exploding powder and the crash of range rifles upset the young soldiers and subject them to severe nervous strain. To avoid this and yet train the recruits to shoot was a problem solved by the invention of a rifle, exactly like the regular army gun in weight and appearance but which, at the click of the hammer, fires light instead of a bullet.

PROBABLY the most artistic and practical path for the lawn or garden is one that is made of stepping stones. When laid out in a natural manner, such a path will harmonize perfectly with any plan of landscaping, whether formal or informal. Contraction and expansion cannot effect it, and no subsequent attention is required except occasionally to mow the grass which grows between the stones.

When it becomes damp, however, the bag is useless, and the string is always getting fouled on the stick.

FOR a great number of years after leaving school, my “career” was conspicuous in its lack of distinction, to say nothing of success. Mostly, I worked as a day laborer in all kinds of factories. I took any job that was to be had, as I was always up against the need of getting work immediately after leaving the last place.

MODEL railway engineers who are interested in the construction of rolling stock will find the accompanying chart of assistance. It shows the standard American truck types in “0” gage and No. 1 gage, drawn accurately to scale. Constructors who require the exact scale—that is, those who wish the parts shown full size—can have the chart photostated up to the actual size required and then use the chosen diagram as a template in making the trucks.
