In nn obi luiu .od steam tug on the
Schuylkill luccr in nrthe Wissnhiekon
landing lives Cnpt. Howe. Tho boat is a
queer combination of dwellii!gdt"U.je,
machine simp, nursery nnd strain tug.
Capt. Howe is .is ipircr as his boat. He
is possessed of an idea that he can con
struct a steam man. and asserts with a
great deal of eonli.letico that in a few
weeks he will have one walking about
thestroetsolThiladi'lpliki, strong enough
to draw a lior-c car and swift, enough
to tlistani'c the nrntr.it runner. When
the machine is yut together it will rc
soluble a short, thiol; -n t man inancicut
armor. The In ml is unuMinlly large
and the cho-d full and broad. The boil
er nnd furi:.'!!'!' arc in the back of the
machine, t he -pinil tubes In which steam
is grtirralcd eliding; in the .sluuihlriN.
The Minokr pasi. : out through the top
of tlm hcail,' lii'i'ting in that manner two
small ivsevvoii'sot water in the neck and
pail of the he-ad ami back.
The machinery is in front, below the
chest. Two cylinders of ingenious con
struction f'.mii-h power to a series ot
strong roils ami crank extending down
ward' into the legs nnd fret. Like the
engines of a. st.Tii-u heel steamboat, these
cylinders work with nllcnuite motions,
and form the foundation for the forward
sfi'p. The motions of the amis are reg
ulated by cogs awl cams connecting
with the pitman crank. The forearms
nnd hands nvr provided w ith strong rub
ber cushions ami springs,
Capt. Uovi'c has been working on his
steam man for many years, ami judging
from imprufeet test's made last Novem
ber feel eolilideiit llint his inaehiiio Is
now perfect. Twelve years ago he built
n steam man from crude nmliiiipcrfoet
Ideas, but did not meet with much suc
cess. The machine, wbrn tied between
the shafts of a wagon, would walk In a
feeble and uncertain manner. Tt would
not stand ah me, and fur this reaum was
of no value. People laughed at the Idrn
then and ridiculed the invention. For
Novcriil year, ('apt. Rowe pondered on
the problem of equilibrium, and iu his
experiments wasted the greater part of
n legacy bequeathed to his wife by a
cousin, who find made n large amount
of money in the Pennsylvania oil regions.
Failure lifter failure 'made ('apt. Umve
morose, and he soon became madly in
sane ou the subject of hi invention.
