Fifty Years the Standard 11 I
Birds and Aeroplanes.
A curious effect ot aviation Is re
ported from the champagne producing
district of France. It is disclosed by
a correspondent in Country Life trying
to explain the bad prospects of the
present shooting season. One reason
for the scarcity of birds is alleged to
be the frequency with which at
Rheims and Mourmelon aeroplanes are
heard and seen in the air. The quail
and. partridge appear to think that the
aeroplane is a new kind of bird of
prey and one of the most terrible, with
the result that they have become fugi
tives from the district This is per
fectly credible; but, on the other hand.
it is only the novelty that terrifies the
wild creatures. One can imagine how
the English hares and rabbits scuttled
across the fields when they first heard
and saw a steam engine, but today
they may be seen feeding in perfect
peace while the train passes close to
them. The motor, too, has ceased to
be a terror to animals.
Action of Dynamite.
The most remarkable characteristic
about dynamite is its rapidity of ac
tion, and for that reason it cannot be
used in firearms, since it explodes so
quickly and in all directions at once
and would tear the barrel to pieces
Shooting: a candle through a board
without disturbing it in the least is
outdone by dynamite, which is so
quick in its action that a tender green
leaf can be compressed into the hard
est steel before it has time to flatten.
One of the experiments of the United
States torpedo works was to place
some leaves between two heavy flat
pieces of iron, set them on a firm foun
dation and see what gun cotton would
do in forcing the iron pieces together.
The reaction was so great from just
being exploded in the open air that
one of the iron pieces was driven down
upon the other quick enough to catch
an exact and complete impression of
the leaves before they could escape.
Trains as Plant Distributers.
It has bt-iMi noticed thai many plants
not natives of the locality are to he
found growing in the neighborhood of
great railroad yards. Sometimes the
seeds of these plants have been
brought thousands of miles from their
natural habitat Often they flourish
in their new environments and grad
ually sppettd over the surrounding
country. Thus the trains carry unsifc
Fiected emigrants which travel to and
from every point of the compass. In
the Mississippi valley are to be found
plants which within a few years past
have thus been brought together, some
from the Atlantic seaboard, some from
the gulf region and some from the
other side of the Rocky mountains.—
Paper Machinery Beits.
Paper machine belting, protected on
the edges by leather, is being tried out
in England with a measure of success.
One advantage claimed for it Is that it
does not stretch.
