Two of these are American lions, com

third is a splendid specimen of the

are large, healthy looking animals,
much liner than those usually seen
in traveling circuses, and with the
range of freedom they will be given
at the park they will undoubtedly
maintain their sleek appearance much
better than those confined in the close
cases of a circus. J lie zoo at pejer-

and it has but one rival now in the

Chicago. If the rate of development
is continued the local zoo will indeed
be a rival to the Chicago zoo.

NEW STEEL PROCESS.
Superior Product Obtained fcy Kleo-
trie Furnace Method.
Details regarding the manufacture
of steel In the electric furnace, as de
scribed by M. Ouillet at a recent meet
Ing of the Soclete des Ingenieurs Civils,
are given In the Paris correspondence
of the Electrical Review. On the con
tlnent there has been considerable
progress In the production of steel by
the eleetrie method. In Italy Comand
ant Stassans, who Is one of the leading
champions of the process, has been car
rying on a number of researches in or
der to find the best and most economi
cal methods. Die claims to have been
very successful with his recent process
es and recommends especially the use
of the arc by reverleration. A new
type of furnace built on this plan has
lately been adopted by the Italian gov
ernment and is under the control of
the war department. In other countries
there is also considerable progress.
A new method which it Is purposed
to use at the Herman- factory consists
In first heating Siemens-Martin steel
and then introducing it into the electric
furnace, the latter carrying out the
final processing of the steel, thus turn
Ing out a high grade product. In this
way it is expected to replace tho ordi
nary grades of steel by a superior
quality for use in general work, where
heretofore the common grades of steel
have been employed. It is found that
the steel which is turned out by the
Froges-TIcrowlt process is superior to
the ordinary steel by reason of the fact
that for a'n identical chemical compost
tion. or, again, for an equal breaking
strain, the new steel shows a greater
elongation and a higher resistance to
shock than the usual carbon steels
even including crucible steels. This is
considered to be clue to the neutral
atmosphere which is obtained in the
electric furnace and the absence of
gases. Another point to be especially
noted in regard to the steel made by
the electric process is that it shows
a much less deformation after temper
ing than other steels.
AN AID TO PAINTERS.
Llquifl Forced (nnllnniillr Into the
Urn.)) Iy roraprmiiril Air.
Two Philadelphia painters have de
vised the latest In paint brushes an
automatic arrangement for supplying
paint continuously to the brush. Dip
ping for paint is unnecessary, the
painter having a full supply at all
times In the brush. I?v the use of this
device the painter will be able to ac
complish twice the amount of work
that he does at present, besides elimi
nating the objectionable stooping.
On the left of the illustration Is
shown the reservoir or tank, in connec
tion with which is an apparatus for
supplying compressed air. The latter

forces the paint through the discharge
opening, whence it passes through tub
ing connected with the brush. The
paint then continues through passages
terminating among the bristles of the
brush, being equally distributed. A
valve or plunger on . the side of the
brush controlled by the index finger
regulates the flow of paint, the supply
being Increased or decreased as re
quired. The air pressure causes the
paint to flow to the brush no matter In
what position held.
Tolaie For Cnnnnmptinn,
The world has been wnitiug almost
a year for the announcement by Pro
fessor Behring of Paris of his cure
for tuberculosis. The Matin is respon-.
sible for the statement . that the pro
fessor Is on the point of compietiug
I1I3 researches and placing bis cure at
the disposal of suffering humanity.
Some weeks ago the professor, it la
said, made a fresh scientific discovery.
This is a substance which he calls
"tulase, the chief feature of which
is that It Is fatal to tuberculosis bacilli.
The secret is being guarded for . the
present, but It will form the basis of
the long promised cure. Treatment
with "tulase" has given such good re-
j suits with animals that the professor
hopes shortly to be able to advocate its
application to consumptive patients.
Ahead of Contract. With practically
all excavation completed and a good
start on concrete construction, the work
on the Molina lock is far ahead of the
schedule which was set the contractors
by the government. The contract un
der which the Dravo Construction com
pany is doing the work requires that
the cofferdam and one-half the excava
tion be done this year. Almost twice
as much as this will probably have
been accomplished before severe wcath

on Fifth street and Eighteenth-and-a

were pleased when it was learned that

WORLD'S WOOD SUPPLY.
Serious Problem in Mret the IncrcnN
Consul William Teichmann of HI-
benstoek reports to the state depart
ment at Washington concerning the
world's supply of wood to the effect
that the demand instead of diminish
ing, as was expected when coal came
in as a substitute for wood, has gone
on Increasing until tho question of a
continued supply to meet t! present
rapidly increasing rate of consumption
is a very serious problem.

1,742,740 square yards of wood for the
various purposes to hieh wood is put
in mines in 1'.m3. Each year a renewal
of old supports is taking place, and
new ones are being put into new gal
leries. Railroads eat up enormous
quantities of wood in cross ties. Add
to these wood for excelsior, or wood

will have tons running into the mil

North America, Siberia, Africa, In
dia, China, Korea and South America
still contain great unutilized and al
most unknown forests. Nevertheless it
would be well not to exaggerate the
dimensions of these wood supplies.
Many African forests ore really com
posed of nothing better than thin bush- j
es, and Siberia is already being sys
tematically subjected to deforesting,
which will also begin in Korea in the
North America, however, -once the
possible wood storehouse for th-
world, has not enough wcmxI to supply
its own demand notwithstanding it -i
50tvVr.000 acres of wooded area. I 'veil
now it is ' dependent upon Canada,
which, with its 7US,l.T3.00i acres of for- j
esis, represents prooaoiy me inrirest
single area of any country in" the
world. Canada sends its entire surplus
to the United States. Although lirge
territories of forests, especially in Chi
na, Korea, India and South America,
remain to be utilized, it Is certain that
the question of the future wood supply
of the world, now attracting the atten
tion of economists, will continue to ex
cite great interest. Tho continuation
of the present wood consumption with
out comprehensive reforesting will
within u century at the latest result ia
a great and very important scarcity of
tho wood supply.
