75 years ago
everyone wore homespun—
and, likewise, everyone uaed hand-mixed
paint. To-day, when machine-spun doth
ta eo much barer and cheaper, no one
would think of wearing homespun. Many
people are still using hand-mixed paint*
however, because they do not know that
will save them money and
labor. Devoe Lead and Zinc
Paint ia limply made of the

INVENTS METAL CRO68TIE.
Termer Laoriaburg Man Perfects j
Valuable sad Useful Invention.
Mr. Edward A. Muse, of Hamlet,
an edkleat and popular Seaboard Bail
read engineer and who ownt a com
fortable borne la one of the beet loca
tion* i« town, has invented a metal
eroettie that from diagrams and de
scription appears to be the means to
make railroading, as far as tho track
is concerned, solwi and proof against
spreading of giving away in any re
spect, and it is well-known a stable
track It one of the (lrat considerations.
Hie Inltlsl cost will he considerably
greater bat the durability and email
oost of keeping adjusted would more
than compensate for the difference.
One track foreman thoogju that it
could be done at one-half the present
The tie proper, a patent for which
hoe been applied for. is the eame
shape as the wooden tie. That la, it
is reetangnlsr or box-like in structure.
The top is smooth, while the sidss and
bottom are corrugated or of alternate
ridgva and sink* that _ will help to
hold it in place when ballast is well
down. There is a moat novel means
of securing the rail* and plates to
the tic. The rail is bald In place on
the outside by a plate that Is made
Into the tie. The rail la slipped under
this. The inside plate Is fastened
with threaded bolts that pass through
the angular holes. The bolts ate held
securely by nuts The ties, being hol
low, will bo conduits for any overflow
*f water and In that way be a gnat
factor in saving tho foundation work.
Tho tie will last twenty or thirty-five
rears, and thou be good scrap iron,
and the cost of manufacture would be
governed by the thickness of the tie.
The design of the tie aad the Ingen
ious manner in which K t* held aad
made secure seems a happy combina
tion that will aooaer or later super-,
cede the wooden tie, revolutionising
track banding aad thereby make
traveling by rail loss hazardous and
the malls, express aad freight doubly

If this Invention proves so good sa
It looks and tho cost dsss not prove
prohibitive, Mr. Muse has performed
