It has always been a problem how to 'get the wool oi? the skins of the many 'millions of sheep which are annually slaughtered in Australia, South Amer? ica and on the continent, of Europe. An .electrical apparatus for the purpose has been patented, says the St.J-ouis(ilobe Democrat.

The knife has a very short ;und very wide blade, which is fitted on a handle electrically connected. To re? move the wool the cautery is simply pushed along the surface of the skin. |The red-hot knife instantly mows down :the wool, and the speed at which the ?"work can be done is governed by the deftness of the operator.

"Miss Lizy," as she was known in the mountain region of the upper Cumber? land, was a spruce spiuster of 4? or thereabouts, and it was generally un? derstood that she would be willing to wed if sufficiently urged.
