VOLCANOES IN MAftYLAw?.
Prove to Be the Oldest . Rock Forma?
tion In the United States.
Prof. Philip R.. Uhler gives an ac
count of a discovery which* he made In
the western Maryland mountains, says
the .Baltimore American. Three peaks,
the principal one named Buzzard's
Knob, crown a plateau about six miles
from the dty. It was for Prof. Uhler
to discover that the three prominences
are i:a fact volcanoes, and that aney
are the- very oldest type of volcanic
zock "hat la found in the United States.
These peaks are of a different form
from voleanoes like Vesuvius. In the
latter form of volcano molten lava-and
stones are forced up by superheated
steam, Isaving a deep hole, but in
these craters in western Maryland the
whole mountain was ariginally in a
molten condition and tne top crust was
forced upward in a dome-shaped form,
and such lava as did escape was forced
out in vents at various places. The
volcanic rock* of the region is metal
bearing, and speclments of gray, green
and gold copper were found by Dr.
Uhler. The domes of the craters were
somewhat elliptical in shape.
In Mountain Climbing.
The highest point at which climbers
have stayed for any length of time is
20,992 feet, on the Himalayas, where an
exploring party painfully stayed for six
weeks In 1902. Higher still, at 21,910
feet, :ls the extreme point of Mrs. Bul
lock Workman's ascents, the greatest
height reached by a woman. Mr. Bul
lock Workman kept on to a point 23,
893 feet high, which is the greatest
height reached by any mountain climb
er. The altitudes reached by Mr. and
Mrs. Bullock Workman were above
those at which M. Berson, the aero
naut, began his artificial inhalation of
oxygen. At 26,240 feet the aeronauts
in general begin the continued inspira
tion of oxygen, and neglect of this pre
caution was responsible for the death
of MM. Croce, Spinelli and Sirel at 28,
208 feet, and their companion, Tissan
dier, just escaping by a miracle.
Mount Everest, the highest point of
the globe, is only some 700 feet higher,
28,99ft feet, and 3,000 above that begin
the cirrus clouds that are composed of
spicules of ice. At 35,424 feet is the
highest point ever reached by man.
This is the height attained by M. Ber
son in his balloon on July 31, 190L?
His Muscles Obey Him.
Medical circles in Vienna are being
edified by some remarkable examples
of muscular action v/hich a man aged
about: 30 years is showing. His power
over his muscles is so great that he can
perform feats that would usually be
deemed incredible. Ke can contract
his abdominal muscles so as to show an
undulating movement massing upward
and downwaru; his larynx goes up and
down without the aid of the tongue;
and he can even cause his pupils either
to ccntract or dilate thus showing the
Influence of will over so-called invol
By contracting the diaphragm he Is
able to displace his heart by four
inches. One of his marvelous feats,
narrated by a Lancet correspondent, is
the "transposition of the intestines
into tbe space occupied usually by the
Oxygen to Cut Metals.
Diamond may cut diamond, but oxy
gen cuts metals, at least at Liege.
There there is a daily exhibition of the
Jottrand'process for cutting metals by
a jet of oxygen. The apparatus con
sists essentially in blow pipes, moved
along a guide in front of the metal
plates or part to be cut at the "rate of
about six inches per minute.
One of the blow pipes delivers an
oxyhydrogen flame, which raises the
metal where it is to be cut to a tem
perature corresponding with dark red.
The following blow pipe delivers a jet
of pure oxygen which enters into com
bustion with the hot metal, thus pro
ducing a clear channel like a saw cut
about one-eighth inch thick, tne re
mainder of the metal being unaffected

A Real Rapid-Fire Gun.
A new death-dealing instrument has
been invented. A Lithuanian gentle
man, M. Feodor Troit.z. has contrived a
gun, worked by electricity, which will
fire from *,000 to 12,000 shots a minute.
The range of this new weapon is three
miles, and its destructive power, if all
claims on its behalf are genuine, should
put in the shade such trivial toys as
magazine rifles. The gun only requires
one man to work it.
Luminous shrimps have been discov
ered by the Prince of Monaca in the
course of his deep sea fishing in tbe
Mediterranean. They live at a depth of
from 1,100 to 1,600 fathoms. They are
of the size of fine prawns, and are
studded with small phosphorescent
spots. These light their way in the
gloom of the deep waters.?Exchange.

In Mexico railways are being extend

The strong elements of these fences and upon which durability and strength depends are High
Carbnn Corrugated Line Wires heavily galnanizcd, all of which are tied together by tough open hearth
Steel Stay Wires, all of which are double galvanized The top and bottom strand wires are number
9, the intermediate strain! wires are Xo. 11; the double galvanized stay wires are No. 13. The cor
rugations in the line wires amply provide for stjuins, incident to contraction und repulsion, the result
of heat or cold, atsomc time these currugations also give life to the fence, protecting it from ordinary
usage, when any great or sudden force is brought to bear on the fence. The corrugations permits^
gradual yielding which prevents the line win-s from being put to sudden strain, and consequently
eliminates the danger of breakage from stock running against them.
