M. Bertin. chief engineer of naval con
struction in the French navy, figured
out from elaborate calculations in how
short a distance a steamship can stop.
He demonstrates that a 50,000 ton
transatlantic liner, going twenty-nine
knots an hour, simply by stopping the
engines will come to a stop in one
hour and thirteen minutes and will in
that time have traveled 4.7S statute
miles. The same vessel with recipro- V
cating engines, if these be reversed. S
vwi stop in twice its own length and b
if the engines be turbines in four
times its own length. These theoreti
cal calculations are verified by actual
experiment. The French minister of
marine made the test with some tor
pedo boats and has on several occa
sions stopped one by reversing its en- 1
gine to 60.6 yards and when the en
gInes were of the turbine type in 273.4 a

The Crow That Wearm a Fool's Cap.
The following clever way of keeping
crows away from a grainfield is used
by the farmer of Holland: He makes
some small caps of stout paper and
smears around the inner side of the
mouth of each some birdliine of other
sticky stuff.- In these he puts some
grains of corn and stands them about
his fields by pressing their points into
soft earth. When the crow finds one
of these paper caps he think himself
in great luck until he attempts to peck
at the tempting grain, when, - to his
astonishment, he finds the cap attach
ed to his head-a regular fool's cap
which will not even allow him to see
what course to take if he flies up.
However, he succeeds in reaching
some coarse grass or bushes and after
much bewildered scrambling and fop
ping aboutsgets his head out of this
undesirable cap and ever afterward
avoids the field where there are more

Lightning Kills Few.
In 1906 lightning killed only 169 peo

of death by liahtning/are less than two
in a million. The chance of death from
liver, kidney or stomach trouble is vast
ly greater. but not if Electric Bitters be
used, as Robert Madsen, of West Bur

him up after eight months of suffering
from virulent liver trouble and yellow

Grinned into Matrimony.
That grinning matches were an ac
cepted f'rm of sport in early English
days Is shown by an advertisement
announcing a gold ring to be grinned
for by men on Oct, 9 at the Swan,
Coleshill heath. Warwickshire, which
appen-ed in the Post-Boy of Sept. 17.
1711. Addison gives a detailed ac
count of one of these "controversies of
faces," telling us that the audience
nnanimously bestowed the ring on a
cobbler who "produced several new
grins. of his ovn invention. having
been used to cut faces for many years
together over his last."
His performance was something like
this: "At the very first grin he cast
every human feature out of his coun
tenance. at the second he simulated
the face of a spout, at the third that
of a baboon,. at the fourth the head of
a bass viol and at the fifth a pair of
nut crackers." Addison adds that a
comely wench whom he had wooed in
vain for more than five years was so
charmed with his grins that she mar

What Is Electricity?
Man- persons young and old often
wonder how the modern electric cars,
trains and locomotiyes are operated
and what electricity is. No one knows
what electricity is.. We know some of
the things that it will do. We. have
to a certain extent learned how to con
trol it and for want of a better name
call it a fluid. We have discovered.
too, that it is one of the most impor
tant forces, if not the most important
force, of which we have any knowl
edge. We are almost as ignorant of
many other great forces of nature-as,
for example.' the attraction of gravita
tion. For the present we must be con-'
tent to observe such forces in action
and to devise the best methods to con
trol them. In this knowledge mankind
has progressed wonderfully within a
few years.-St. Nicholas.
Fishing without Bait.
On the Nadoo creek, at Hukow, we
saw a novel way of fishing. Two
small boats were moving parallel with
each other about thirty feet apart.
The ends of a line about sixty feet
long to which small unbaited hooks
were attached about four inches apart
to two sticks were held respectively
by aman in each boat As the boats~
moved slowly along first one man and
then the other would give his sticka
jerk. Immediately that the hooks
struck anything the line was gradu- '
ally hauled in and invariably with
success. Wd saw fish struck four out
of five times. many of them running
apparently from half a pound to two
or more pounds. It may be that Chi
na is the only place in the world
where figh are caught with unbaited
hooks.-North China News.
