Tvtcnty Knot Steamers Are
The world bears so much about
ocean greyhounds that break the
record, and of the fierce competition
to cut down the time for crossing
the Atlantic, tbat it may readily be
pardoned if it thinks steamers of
more than twenty-knot speed far
more numerous than they really
are. A table printed in the report'
of the Commissioner of Navigation,
compiled from Llyod's Register of
thednte;of July 1,1902, sought to
disabuse the public mind of its
error on this point. This table
takes congnizancc of all screw
steamers in the world of 2000 gross
tons or more oftwelvc-knot speed
and upward. Of the 1 238 steamers
covered by the compilation only
twenty had authenticated speed
records of twenty knots and over.
0fthe.se twenty, 7 were British, 5
German, 4 American, 2 Ercnch and
2 Russian. Of the 1238 steamers
460 were of 12 knots, 364 of 13 and
135 of 14. After passing 14 knots
1 the classes rapidly diminish in
number. Thus there were but 9
of 19 knots and only 18 of 18 knots.
jjudging from this table, 17 knots is
' regarded as the happy medium be
tween speed and profit, for there
were 57 of this class, of which 9
were under the American flag.
From a table accompanying the
, one referred to it is apparent there
'arc few commercial inducements to
1 build very large steamers of very
high speed. In the last two years
there has been but one addition to
each of the 20-knots, ig-knot and
iS-knot classes, whereas there were
at the time the enumeration was
made (1902) 46 more 12-knot
steamers than there were in 1900.
Classified by flags, Great Britain
owns more than one-half of all the
20oo-tons steamers in the world,
having 664 under her register.
Germany conies second 127, France
third with 116 and the United
States fourth with 10S. Japan is n
poor fifth with 40.
These tables make manifest that
the general tendency in steamships
construction for profit is to combine
great cargo capacity with the
smallest coal consumption consist
ent with a fair rate of speed.
Tramp steamers or those employed
in regular freight lines are laid
down on much larger dimensions,
but with very little effort to raise
the speed of this class. Thus we
find steamers of the American Ha
waiian Company, designed to carry
freight around Cape Horn, thouuli
averaging nearly 6000 tons, have
but eleven-kirot speed. Boston

CUltr, KOUIILOOI) POISON.
Now York Physician Ulnlnis to llnyc
Mndc a (Ircut Discovery.
New York, Jan. 15. Dr. Charles
C. Barrows of this city has sub
mitted a report of a case to the New
York Obstetrical Society and out
lined a treatment tending to revo
lutionize the methods of modern
medical procedure in dealing with
blood poisoning. It would seem,
indeed, that an actual specific for
this dread ailment had been dis
covered. Briefly, the treatment
consists of the injection of formalin
into the veins.
Dr. Egbert Grandiu, president of
the New York Obstetrical Society,
after hearing Dr. Barrow's report,
said: "Without further trial, and
taking this case as it stands, I con-
I sulcr Dr. Barrows' discovery as the
most important contribution to me
dical science of this generation."
Dr. Barrows' experiments were
made upon public patients in Belle
vue Hospital. A patient was suf
fering from a violent case of blood
poisoning and had a temperature of
108 degrees and a pulse of 160. It
is said Barrows injected into one
of the large veins of the right arm
500 cubic centimeters of formalin.
The effects were almost magical.
The temperature and pulse rate
soon began to fall, and in the
course of a few days were normal.
The patient is now practically well.
OarnoKie's Historical Window.
Professor Gerald Moira of the
Royal College of Art has just com
pleted a stained-glass window for
Andrew Carnegie's Scottish coun
try seat, Skibo. The window is
unquestionably one of the finest
productions of modern applied art,
and does the greatest credit to its
designer,, who has known how to
combine within its limited frame a
number of personal, historical and
allegorical allusions without mak
ing the window suffer as a superb
work of art.
It is composed of five lights, the
center being occupied by the figure
of St. Gilbert, who made Skibo his
palace when Bishop of Dornoch in
1233. To the left of him stands
Sigurd the Dane, who built the
castle in 946, while to the right is
the Duke of Montrose, who was
trapped at Skibo in 1650. The fi
gures are flanked with views of
Skibo castle and the little Scotch
cottage in which Carnegie was

Suicides of Lust Year.
In its annual review of the stat
istics of suicides in the United
States the Chicago Tribune finds
that they are increasing much more
rapidly than the gain in population
warrants. The figures for the last
few years are as follows: 1899,
5340; 1900, 6755; 1901, 7245; 1902,
While the increase last year over
1901 is 14 per cent, that for the
three years yields the startling per
centage of 55, or more than half as
