CONTROLLED BY SOUND WAVE
Engineer Has New Idea for Control
ling the Death-Dealing Devices Em.
ployed in Modern Warfare.
Lovers of opera, or otherwise, who
have had the pleasure, or otherwise,
of hearing some of the most modern
miusic, have come to realize that it has
other attributes than that of soothing
the savage breast. But to blow up a
battleship by means of a Strauss dis
soriauce or a Wagner overture, to nip
off prowling submarines with a Verdi
cadenza, or to make a mine-strewn har
bo.r safe for your own ships with the
tender notes of a Schubert lullaby
seems another matter.
Expressed somewhat after the fash
ion of vers libre, that is more or less
the results that are expected from an
invention demonstrated to the writer.
Lieut. Stiles M. Decker of the Pacific
coaist artillery is the inventor of a de
vice that he believes will go a long
way toward revolutionizing our coast
defense. Patents have been applied
for and preliminary tests have shown
conclusively, it is said, that control of
underwater mines may be successfully
maintained through sound waves for
firing, testing or rendering the mines
neutral. It is believed to be the first
timer that the energy of sound has been
used as a means of controlling the ac
tion of a source of energy.
The fact that mines have to be
either controlled from the shore or by
means of wires or else planted loose
so that they will explode on contact
has long been a source both of ex
pense and trouble, according to Lieu
tenant Decker. The cable to the mines,
when this is used, is very expensive
and becomes useless in the course of a
few years. Also it is not a very diffi
cult matter under certain conditions
for it to be destroyed by an enemy,
thus rendering the mines useless. The
mines that are simply planted with no
further means of control may become
as dangerous to the ships of this coun
try as they are to those of an enemy.
If there could be some means of con
irolling them from the land without
the necessity of any actual physical
connection the advantages are so ap
parent that they need no enumeration.
After considering a number of pos
sible solutions Lieutenant Decker con
ceived the idea of using sound waves,
which, as is well known, can be carried
under water. With this as a working
basis he has built up his theory of
making a mine that will be controlled
by a series of musical notes.
Selecting the Camp Site.
Unless you know your country well,
do not rush to make camp on arrival,
but take enough time to hunt up a
good comfortable location. If there
are any guides to be had, ask their
advice, and the small charge they will
make to show you some of the best
places will be more than repaid in ex
tra satisfaction. The most important
requirements are sufficient firewood
and good drinking water. It is not a
great task to go some distance for
water, but the wood must be close at
hand. If possible, select a location
where the morning sun will shine di
rectly on the tent. This is for two
purposes; to keep the camp dry, and
to get everyone up while the coffee
and pancakes are hot. It is well to
have the camp partiallf shaded after
ten o'clock in warm weather and
enough trees about to break the force
of the wind, not that there is any
danger of a tent blowing down when
pitched in either manner described
below, but continuous strong winds
become very tiresome and make the
keeping of food warm almost an im
possibility. Moderate breezes are
most desirable for keeping away flies
and cooling the tent.-Field and
Education by the "Movies."
Though motion pictures may never
supplant the schoolmaster, they are al
ready supplementing his work, and
make it possible to facilitate teaching
by illustrating of a varied and effective
kind. Not least important is the aid
that may give the practicing doctor
and surgeon, especially in rare and dif
ficult eamergencies. The perfection
reached in this new art wvas demon
strated in motion pictures of intricate
operations lately shown the New York
Courty Medical society. It was noted
that every movement of the surgeons
could be seen more clearly than when
viewved directly in the ordinary clinic
amphitheater, for the pictures wvere
taken from the best viewpoint. With
films froma the great surgical centers of
the world collected as a part of the
medical library, the local operator sud
denly confronted with a strange case
may promptly find needed details of
newv or special operations by referring
to the stored pictures.

Cardul helps women in time

contains ingredients which act

So, if you feel discouraged,
