FRENCH CANAL OPENED
UNDER A MOUNTAIN I
Watarway From Marseille? to Riva* j
Rhona at Last Complota, \
Tbs canal under tbe mountain be
tween- Marseilles, France, and tba
river Rbone, constituting one of tbe :
moat notable engineering achievements j
of modern times, was officially opened
tbe otber day in tbe presence of a dis-1
anguished gathering of members of tbs |
cabinet nud other .officials.- .
Hitherto Marseilles, although a great |
port of entry for tbe Mediterranean,
'bas been-walled in from central France
by a mountainous ridge that sweeps
around the northern side of the city.
The canal bi chiefly remarkable in that
it pierces this barrier,. the waterway
running for five miles in a tunnel un
der a mountain. It thus has the effect
of Unking Marseilles with island cities
such as Lyons, Avignon and Valence
and putting lt. in touch with tbe ex
tensive Inland commerce along tho|
river Rhone, It vf ill. also elvo - Marr
s?illes a direct water connection with |
Havre and the North sea. ,
The canal and its tunnel have been
under discussion for nearly a hundred
years, but actual work on them' was
not begun until 1904. The length, of
the canal ls sixty mlle.!, ard the five
mlle section under - the mountain ds
seventy-five feet wide and seventy feet
li I gb, constituting what is declared to
be the largest tunnel Interior in the
world. Barges and vessels op to OOO |
tons can navigate the canal, which,
like the Kiel canal, it is believed, v/Ul
have strategic value ia permitting the
movement of destroyers and mn:\\\
warcraft between the Mediterranean
and the North sea. The' cost ot tue
work has been about 100.000,000 francs.

New Law in London ts Outgrowth of
(From the Popular Sclcnco Monthly.)
London has passed an unusual law
which requires that , baby carriages
r h i11 be equipped \ with sidelights.
While no adequate explanation is giv
es, it ts believed that the new ruling
was put Into effect because of the
darkness into which tho streets are
plunged becau?e of the fear of Zop-1
pel in raids. Baby carriage, wh'le
not .'dangerous objects are objects ot
danger and the fact, that they are
compelled by law to be equipped with
a lamp to light their way, lessens, gue ?
possibilities of collisions. Tho law
requires that the light shall show
white Jn front and red in the rear.
