"The problem facing the government
is, first, to discover thc formula of
glasses, and having discovered it, to
establish the industry. It is fortunate
that in this crisis we have available a
few scientific men who have been
working for years almost without rec
ognition, and we have also institutes
such as the imperial college at South
Kensington and the National I'hysical
laboratory at Teddington. The gov-
eminent went to these mm and asked
them to discover the formula used by
Germans in their production of
optical and chemical glass.
"These British scientists, after a few
wcks experiments, discovered many

within a year after the outbreak of
war the output f optical glass m this
country was multiplied four anri a half

BROUGHT TO CAPE
John Herbst Will Make Soup of
giant Shellback Ftop
Arthur Steele brought a 65-pound
turtle to "the Cape yesterday morning
on his arrival from the southern part
of hte State. Mr. Steek, who is a
brakeman on the Frisco Railroad,
bought the turtle from a fisherman
who caught it in the current river.
Thc tortoise, which was very much
alive, was brought to the Cape in a
boxcar, its legs being chained to the
wall. It waa hauled to the saloon
of John Herbst at Good Hope and
Frederick streets, where it will be re
duced to soup tomorrow.
The big shellback, who had lost its
pleasant disposition by the boxcar ride
to the Cape, was hankering; for battle
when it was unloaded at Good Hepe
and Frederick. When the time came
for the execution, volunteers were ask
ed for. After some persuasion, Boas
Frissell agreed to assist John Herbst
in preparing the turtle for soup.
As .toon as tortoise saw
As soon as the tortoise ;ae Herbst,
it opened its mouth and attempted to
clip off one of the saloonnian's lwer
extremities, but he fot avar. While
the turtle was chasing "Hoppy," Boas
Frissell seized an ax and struck It ju?t
back of the head, which stunned the
monster and before ft could regain its
equilibrium, its head was chopped off.
The amphibian was shorn of its
shell, claws and hide, and when the
butchering had been concluded and all
but good wholesome meat had been re
moved, it weighed more than "O
pounds. The turtle will be cooked to
night and soup will be serred at the
Herbst bar all day tomorrow. It ia
said that the turtle will produce more
than "A gallon? of soup.
