Electricity Would Do All the Work

PnilTTES TOR Till OIRPATCn.!
The question of the construction of elec
tric roads in country districts, and the gen
eral distribution ol electrioity for uie in
Tanning operations ii considered in a re
cent paper by Franklin L. Pope, who terms
it "the most important problem pressing
for a practical solution to-day." Mr. Pope,
in relerring to some estimates ofW. K.
Black on this subject, says: "ilr. Black
considers, and in this ire are in entire ac
cord with him, that the most hopeful solu
tion of the problem of difficulty andflij
couragement that surrounds the American
farmer of to-day is to be looked for in the
general distribution of electric power over
the whole country from central stations,and
Its utilization, cot merely for transporta
tion, but lor all the work ot the farm now
carried on so expensively, laboriously and
inefficiently by the muscular power of men
and animals. It needs but little study of
the actual figures to appreciate how enor
mous would be the magnitude of the saving
If this most flexible and tractable of all
agents could be made to do even a compara
tively small portion of the farm work of the
It will be cheaper and more sensible to
render the improved highways unnecessary
than it will be to get the highways." Mr.
Black estimates that electrical highways
can be constructed fori $3,599 per mile in
districts where the grade is not more than
10 per cent Where light trestles or em
bankments were needed, the expenditure
would be greater; but probably over 90 per
cent ot the roodwaysof the United States
could be covered at this cost, and as there
would be, taking au average section of ten
miles square, about 100 miles of road, the
total cost lor the district would be only
1330,000. With a central station large
enough to drive all the road wagons of the
district that would be in use at any one
time, the capitalization wonld be less than
(10 per acre. nd the interest account less
than 60 crnts per annum to the acre. But
Mr. Black proposes a much wider applica
tion of electricity than this capitalization
would meet. Uis idea is that this applica
tion should be thorough, and should in
clude the supplying ot power for all agri
cultural purposes for manufacturing, and
lor electric light as well as far transporta
tion, and be estimates that this could be
done on a capitalization of 53.000,000 for
the 100 square miles of territory. He
maintains that the interest on this sum, $3
per acre, is insignificant when the total
value of the product on a properly culti
vated acre ot fertile soil fs considered.
Electric IJght ixi Campaigning.
One of the leatures of the coming politi
cal campaign is likely to be the substitu
tion ot the electric torch for the time-hon-oreil
oil torchlight of lornier Presidental
campaign paradts. The electrical supply
throughout the country have been besieged
with orders, in many cases amounting to
thousands of dollars, for electric torches,
lanternb and helmets. Besides these simple
devices, crranjem-nts are b-iug mad- in
many quarters lor elaborate lighting eflects
arrangidon a pla.lorm, with a complete
lighting plant, so that it can be drawn all
oer tlie city and at the tame time carry its
own current! Many of these miniature in
stallations wiy exhibit beautilul designs
, -sad-figures vari-colored light,-"id will
be a very in eresling feature ot night
parades. The managers of campaign clubs
can secure some valuable hints on this sub
ject from more than one enterprising
theatrical manager who has Uuring
the past teaon produced some
marvelous spectacular eflects by means of
the electric fight. One of the most remark
able of these was shown in the production
of "SinbaJ," in the second act ol which the
gallery lamps play an important part in the
shipwreck scene. The twilight is made by
four stage lamps and the reflector; for the
moonlight that follows, one ttaze light is
used, cnered with a greeii gelatine shad-,
the border licht being turned low. Then
comrs darkness, folio ned by the storm, and
as thi clears aid the ship is seen sink! ig,
the cri-eu-shaded Etage lights are supple
mented by both of t.ie color-box lights,
uhiletl.e reflector is oncen. rated upon
Siiibad blov.lv rising from the bottom of the
sea. The lightiiingdurin; the storm is pro
duced bv a umque apparatus. It consists
ot one old file, one equally old piece ot brass
rod and one dead s mrt circuit. Beat light
ning is the result, and the effect is perfect.
New Method of Itoad Cleaning.
Macadam, the Scotch engineer, whose
name has lor the last 50 years been con
ptcted with the excellent road-making sys
tem he iutroduc-vi, ued to say: "It is as
important to remove the worn-out material
from a Ftnne road as to put on new mate
rial," and "a'l mud should be brushed lrora
the road Mir ace before applyine more
stone." A pneumatic road-cleaning machine
by which the inventor, John Jacob Astor,
teeks to carry out the-e ideas has appeared,
and the model, which is in operation at Mr.
Astr'n place at Rhinebeck, N Y., is said
to be workiig most satisfactorily. Tne
machine consists of a plattorm mounted on
wheels. ai.d carrying ordinary sha.ts, and a
sal lor the driver. A double-acting bel
lows, sappnrteU inadiagocal position under
the plat orin, affoid a continual blast of air
when the m.iei.me is in operation. A hand
lever uithin reach of the driver enables
him to regulate to a nicety the fores of the
air blast desired. The great advantage this
machine has over brushes is that there is
nothing in the air blast to disintegrate or
remove the solid part of the roadbed.
New Utilization of the Bicycle.
A sign of the interest taken in the bicy
cle by the medical profession as a hygienic
factor is the recent appearance of an article
on cycling in the Loudon Lamxt. Referring
to the performance of a cvclist who covered
413 miles in 24 hours, the Lancet asks where
pace in cycling is going to end. The decla
ration of a cyclist, a member of the me lical
profession, is quoted that if he could bs
protected from the impeding influence of
the wind and could be put on a line of rail
way properly laid for the purpose he could
if placed behind an engine traveling at the
rate of 25 miles an hour keep up with the
engine for one hour at least. Another
view of the increasing epee 1 of cycling is
taken by Dr. B. W. Richardson, who, when
presiding at the last ineeting.of the Society
ol Cyclists, stated tuat in the steps now be
ing taken by that and kindred societies he
saw the firt true efiorts leading to the prac
tical accomplishment of aerial flight. A
Marshal in a New Jersey town is busily en
gaged in superintending the course of bicy
cle instruction which the roundsmen and
sergeants ot the local polioe force are under
going. The station equipment Is to in
clude a cumber of tandems. The wheels
are painted a bright red. and a heavy pen
alty will be inflicted for interference with
the machine by any unauthorized person.
Cheap Poultry Raisins;.
It is etatcd that the poultry dealer of the
Island of Formosa can sell young ducklings
at about two cents each, and yet make a
good profit. The whole secret of the cheap
production of ducks lies in the remarkably
simple and inexpensive process of artificial
hatching that has been devised by the coun
trr people of the island. A long, low shed
is built of wattles and mud, with a thick,
thatched roof. Along the inside walls are
arranged rough troughs, filled with grain
and roasted paddy-husk, on which the eggs
are plaoed as fast as they are laid. In sum
mer no particular precautions are takes but
in winter title -ggs are covered over with
quilted coverlets. After the grain has been
sprinkled with water, it begins to ferment,
and the heat thrown out, together with
that of the paddy-husk, which is being con
tinually changed, hatches the eggs in about
Destroying Household Pests.
A summer visitor at a moldy-looking
farm house opens a campaign against house
hold pests with a fatal trap for the ubiquit
ous fly. It is a variation of the ordinary fly
paper. The sticky solution is made by dis
solving resin 10 parts and spruce fir gum 5
parts in 7 parts of linseed oil by means of
gentle heat. For the incursions of the
mosquitos our tourist recommends the
sponging of the parts of the body likely to
be exposed with a 5 per cent solution of
carbolic acid before retiring, and he advo
cates the liberal evaporation of carbolic acid
powder in the bedroom. In order that cock
roaches and black beetles may be effectively
coped with, their holes should be carefully
stopped up early in the spring. If any in
truders make their appearance ground
borax should be plentifully spread around
the room. The insidious moth should be
circumvented by the placing of small
pieces of naphthaline in various parts of the
room; or camphor can be used in the same
war. where its fumes are cot likely to be
inhaled. A most effective method of moth
prevention is to spray benzine, by means of
an atomizer, over furs, clothes, etc., before
putting away; it is fatal to the
insect in all stages. Care must be taken
when spraying the benzine that there is no
fir or artificial light of any kind in the
room where it is used, as its vapor is high
ly Inflammable. Ants can be driven awav
by sprinkling their tracks and haunts with
Persian insect powder, and fleas succumb
to the sprinkling of good, fresh pyrethrnm
powder. Mice should be given a free lunch
of oatmeal and sugar lor a few nights and
when their appetite for the toothsome dish
has besn thoroughly whetted, a quantity of
plastcof Paris should be carefully mixed
with the oatmeal and sugar, and the diges
tion of the mouse that partakes of the re
fection will be permanently impaired.
The Culture of the Oyster.
Prof. J. A. Ryder, of the University of
Pennsvlvania, has done excellent service
by his recent experiments in oyster cul
ture. This season he intends to plant sev
eral acres of water. A wire netting is
stretched on piles a few inches below low
water mark. On this is strewn a founda
tion of shells, on which are distributed liv
ing oysters for propagation.
