H 6 GOODWIN'S WEEKLY
H Science and Industry
RECENTLY in San Francisco bay
the new submarine boat F-l os-
H tablished a "world's record for
H depth during a six hour submerged
H cruise. The craft went down to a
H depth of 283 feet and maintained this
1 depth for ten minutes while traveling
H at a speed of six knots, then rising
H to a depth of nineteen feet, it pro
Hj ceeded at a speed of eight knots. The
H previous record for depth was held by
M the Seal, a lake type submarine, ofll-
M cially designated G-d, which went to a
H depth of 25G feet, v
H A deputation from the Spanish Wire-
H less Telegraph company recently
H waited on King Alfonso to beg him to
B accept a magnificent motor car to
H which is attached a very perfect and
Hj complete apparatus of wireless instai
H lation that will enable him to com-
H municate with any one he pleases,
H wherever he may be, by means of radi-
H otelegraphy. The king accepted the
H gift with delight, examined the car
Hj and apparatus with great interest, and
H began to use it immediately, wafting
H congratulations to Premier Canalejas
H on the birth of a little daughter that
H Judson C. Clements of the United
H States interstate commerce commls-
B sion, believes that the dust discharged
M along railroads and similar public high-
m ways transmits disease germs of a con-
BB tagious character. As a result he has
H announced his advocacy of a general
H law for the regulation of the matter in
H the interest of the public health. Such
H a law, he says, would doubtless bring
H forth improvements in the means for
H controlling the discharged dust and
H should be of interest to investors
H skilled in the subject.
Hi It has been officially announced by
H the WhLte Star Steamship company
H that the new 50,000 tons liner now un-
H der construction will be christened
H "Britannic." This vessel, which is
H similar to the Olympic, will be the
largest British built ship in the world.
It will contain a number of changes
in design so as to protect it from a dis
aster like that "which befell the Titanic.
It will be provided with it complete
inner skin extending well above tho
load line, throughout tho vulnerable
parts 'of the vessel. The bulkheads
will also be higher, and the vessel
will be able to float with six compart
The first case of stealing an aero
plane occurred the other day at the
Puchon aerodrome at Munich. When
the pilot, Belat, arrived in the morn
ing ho found that some one had brok
en into his hangar and that the mono
plane was missing. On inquiry he
found that several persons in tho
neighborhood had heard the noise of a
motor about 2 o'clock in the morning
Apparently some enterprising pilot had
flown away with the machine. In the
suburbs of T'' 'ch policemen were
kept busy b ng the horizon In

the machine has not been recovered.
Queen Victoria probably has the
most remarkable telephone in tho
world. It is of solid silver, with a gold
transmitter, and is supported by four
bronze Hercules figures; between
which a boy leaning against a Spanish
coat-of-arms is conversing by telephone
(a golden wire) with an English girl
in close proximity to a British lion.
Above the mouthpiece are two god
desses in angol attire. One may well
ask if it is possible to get the wrong
number on such a contrivance. The
queen never does. This work of art
stands on her majostiy's writing table
and connects with the royal nursery.
A German scientist has been busy
investigating the effects of the changes
Of air which aeronauts experience.
Apart from the strain on the nervous
and physical systems, tho sudden
change of the pressure of tho atmos
phere affects the circulation and the
breathing much more than the gradual
ascent in mountain climbing does. The

powerful draft causes a keen sensa
tion of cold, which is the first symptom
complained of, and deafness is soon
experienced in consequences of the
altered pressure upon the tympanum
of the ear; subjective noises, pains In
the ears, and diminished acuity o
hearing are often persistent. Attempts
at protection by plugging the ears
are insufficient. Tho reduced sup
ply of oxygen gives rise to vertigo,
vomiting, and visual hallucinations.
A report coming from Amsterdam
tells of a factory established at Ymul
den, at the mouth of the North Bea
canal in Holland, to produce a sub
stitute for rubber. It Is said that tho
company operating the factory has
succeeded in producing a substance
having the qualities of rubber and
some special advantages over the gen
uine. While the process is a secref,
the principal ingredient is said to be
fresh sea fish, which are brought to
Ymuidpn in vast quantities by the
Dutch fishing fleets. According to re
port, 15 to 16 per cent of natural rub
ber is added to the flsh, and the
result is a substance as flexible and
elastic as rubber, but much cheaper
about as 1.25 to 8 in price compared
with real rubber. The low price of
this produce will be caused partly by
the by-products which are possible,
for it is said that much albumen will
be made from the fish, and that halt
of the factory Is arranged for the man
ufacture of fertilizer.
The part played by the powerful
chemical substances secreted in the
various parts of many plants Is im
perfectly understood. Free prusslc
acid In some plants was the remark
able discovery made not long ago, and
now Prof. Peche has concluded that
in the cherry laurel this poison Is
stored in various tissues as a reserve
plant food. Other German biologists
have been seeking to prove that vari
ous plant poisons give protection
against enemies. Results have been
obtained by Prof. W. Peyer tending to
show that the various acids, oils, alka
loids, glucosides, and other chemicals
or pianis are poisonous or oitensivo
to rabbits, snails, insects, and other
creatures. In the pastures the plants
yielding medicinal oils are avoided
by both grazing and wild animals. Tho
acid bearing plants, such as are used
for human food as salads, are poison
ous to snails and slugs, and are pro
tected nearly as effectively against
rabbits. Beans, peas, and lentils con
tain some unknown poison that causes
rabbits and mice to refuse the seeds
until the active principle has been io
moved by several washings. An aold
product of seedling roots such as
maize, oats, and rye repels snails, as
do hairy stalks and sticky surfaces,
and plants having bundles of calcium
oxalate crystals are offensive or pois
onous not only to rabbits and snails
but even to man.

THE ROAD TO THE MOUNTAINS.
Walter Lawson Wilder.
Out of the strife and the turmoil,
Far from the hot city's street;
Opens the road to tho Mountains,
Quiet and peaceful and sweet.
Gateway of rock riven canon,
Grade between cliff and abyss;
Summit where snow banks eternal
Hang o'er the dark precipice
Fragrant with breath of the wild
Cooled by the fresh mountain
Sprinkled with spray from the j(or
rent, Shaded by resinous trees.
Here come the tourist and camper,
Here rises the smoke of the trains;
Here puffs the venturesome auto,
They pass, but silence remains.
Ever the road to tho Mountains,
Leads up to Beauty and Peaco;
Time cannot soil or deface it,
Use will its charms but increase.
On where each peak rises higher,
On where each vale is more blessed;
Follow the road of the Mountains
Up to Life's Summit, and Rest.
The Helpful Friend.
The motorist emerged from beneath
the car and struggled for breath. His
"helpful friend, holding oil can, beam
ed upon him.
"I've just given the cylinder a .thor
ough oiling, Dick, old man," said the
helpful friend. "Cylinder?" said the
motorist, heatedly; "that wasn't tho
cylinder; it was my ear!" National
