NOI8B 18 KILLING.
Man's nerves and hearing appara
tus were evolved in comparatively
quiet surroundings, to detect faint
sounds warning liim of danger or of
the presence of game. Sudden loud
sounds shock the system greatly
in childhood they may cause con
In time we may evolve race im
mune to noise, but it can only be
done by killing off those who are
most injured by it, and these ner
vous people are often the very ones
who are doing the most to advance
civilization. So the only thing to
do is to make the. environment fit
for them and not kill them as unfit
for the environment.
The first step is to abolish un
necessary bells, whistles and street
cries, construct less noisy pavements
and give children playgrounds where
they can blow oil steam to their
dear hearts' content and not annoy
any one, not even long-suffering,
A genius who can still the noise
of our dreadful streets and tube
railways will be dubbed "blessed"
by the world.
FOR MAN BIRDS.
Kaiser Wilhelm has hit upon a
p'lan to turn a tiny island in the
North Sea into a rendezvous for
Germany's great airship fleet. He
ligoland is one of the most curious
islands in the world. It belonged
to Great Britain twenty years ago,
but was given over to Germany in
exchange for Zanzibar.
The towering cliffs on this island
are largely artificial. It was dis
covered that the heavy seas were
honeycombing them and the island
threatened to be entirely swept away.
The German Governnerit spent
millions of dollars in pouring cement
into these crevices and preserving
this strategic point. In addition,
it was formidably armed and the
utmost secrecy is maintained as to
the strength of its fortifications.
Visitors are not permitted to land
except in the stuffy little town at
the base. They are forbidden to
scale the bluffs whereon the arma
ments bristle and where gigantic
stores of powder are maintained
for the Imperial fleet.
This island is said to be prepared
to withstand a siege of three years.
The French Government has
reached the conclusion that the
drum is no longer necessaay in
military affairs. Acting upon the
recommendation of a military com
mission, orders have been issued to
cast it out of the service.
The history of the drum is most
ancient and honorable. The Egyp"
tians employed it and the Greeks
attribute its origin to Bacchus. The
Spanish conqueror, Pizarro, is said
to have found drums in South
American temples. The snakes of
Ireland, we are told, fled from the
Emerald Isle because of the drum
beats of St. Patrick.
The French report seta forth that
the drum is a serious encumbrance
in marching; that rain impairs its
usefulness; that its calls cannot be
distinguished in time of battle;
thai it consumes a period of years
to turn out an efficient drummer,
and that by abandoning the drum
many thousands of youths will be
released from the service,
A French inventor has made a
frightful addition to the efficacy of
the revolver. A small but power
ful electric light is attached to the
mechanism of a pistol of ordinary
size. By use of lenses and mirrors
the glare of the circle of light which
the lamp throws is bright enough to
be clearly seen in daylight against
bo dark an object as a light colored
suit of clothes.
Now the centre of the circle of
light, marked by a black spot by
arrangement of the lenses, is exactly
the spot where the bullet will strike
Thus all one has to do is to place
the black centre of the blazing circle
of light over the heart of an adver
sary and pull the trigger.
At night the light is shockingly
strong. Experiments with the new
weapon show that perfect green
horns, who have never used a re
volver in their lives, can shoot far
more accurately thnn experts using
an ordinary pistol.
tip to sixty ynrds one cannot miss
a small bull's-eye, day or night,
while extremely accurate shooting is
possible up to 100 yards. The lamp
arrargcmcnt adjusts automatically,
by levels, I o distances.
18 AN EA8Y DEATH.
Freezing to death, writes a medical
authority, is preceded by a drowsi
ness which makes the end painless
the body actually feels warm and
goes comfortably to sleep. Experi
ments have been made with animals
to show just how freezing to death
In one of these experiments, in
which the animal was placed in a
ktnperature of 125 to 150 degrees
below zero, the breathing and heart
beats at first were quickened, the
organic heat of the body actually
rising above normal.
The rising showed a sudden and
intense effort on the part of func
tions to preserve the body's tem
perature. Then violent heart action
gave out suddenly, and death came
when the temperature of the body
dropped to 71 degrees.
1,250 FOOT 8HIP8.
At the first International Con
gress of Maritime Navigation in
Philadelphia it was predicted that
in 1950 the twenty largest boats on
the Atlantic will have an average
length of 1,100 feet, with a beam of
more thr i 100 feet and a draught
of nearly forty feet.
A forecast, however, made several
years ago for 1923 materialized last
year, and it may well be that this
forecast for 1950 will find itself an
actuality fifteen or twenty years
sooner than the time prophesied.
Work been done to better dock
ing facilities all over the world gives
a slight indication of what may be
expected. The plans for the new
locks of Tilbury Dock provide for
ships of a length of 1,250 feet, a
width of 130 feet and a draught of
thirty-nine feet. The Suez Canal
is to be deepened to thirty-nine feet
37S WIRELESS PLANTS.

coast stations in the world at the
present time, according to a report
from the International Bureau of

Germany and its colonies, 22;
Italy, 19; Russia, 19; France, 17;

The British and French colonies
also have several stations. Of the
wireless stations on board war vessels,
the United States has 247; Great
Britain, 213; France, 141;- Ger
many, 112; Italy, 77; Japan, 70;
and Russia, 70.
The merchant marine of Great
Britain has 455 stations; the Uuited
States, 253; Germany, 200; France,

Sir John Cockburn, speaking to
teachers at the London Day Train
ing College, said speech wascalled
into function by the movement
of the hand.
"If you want to reach the brain
you must do it through the hand,
and if you disregard the use of the
eyes and hands in education you
are placing the brake on all mental
development of the child.
"The command to 'keep still' in
a school is the greatest cruelty you
can possibly impose on children,
