In politics also Sid Edward's ability
as a fighter has brought him to the
front. In spite of ill health he ha3
fought year after year against home
rule, and in the .days of the conserva

measures of coercion, which made ev
ery conservative hated in nationalist
Ireland. He has come to be known
throughout Ireland as "Coercion Car
son," and a priest once said to Uim:
"Sir, If the Irish only hated the devil
half, as much as they hate you, my
trade would be ruined."
Sir Edward is cot a great orator
but he has a delightful brogue and the
ready wit of his countrymen, which
always causes the house of commons
to- fili wnen he is down for a speech.
The humor, however, is omitited when
he is on his favorite subject of home

announced his decision, and thrusting

honor of St. Hubertus, the patron
saint of hunters.
The original lodge is small,-but very
comfortable. Emperor William added
to it from time to time in order to
have room for the -entertainment of
his hunting guests. The outer walls
of t,he chateau are ornamented with

friendship of the British and German
royal' houses, the German Navy league
was devoting its annual meeting at
Bremen to furthering its propaganda
for a greater navy.
A week ago the Military league was
agitating for further increases in the
army, and now those interested in a
greater German navy are making
themselves heard. They declare pre
vious increases to ba. inadequate, and
demand two extra battleship cruisers,
to be laid down in 1914 and 1915. They
say also that as soon as the third bat

ized, two years hence, it will be neces
sary to take up the question of
strengthening the reserve fleet organ

effort.s to seeing that the reserve

Designs for the new German embas
sy to be built at Washington have been
solicited from architects of German
nationality, and four prizes amounting
to $6,250 are offered. The prizs jury
conslsts of six prominent architects;
the minister of foreign affairs, Herr
von Jagow, and the German ambassa
dor at Washington, Count Bernstorff.
This open competition for the Wash
ington embassy is a direct result, of
the criticism of the new building for
the German embassy at St. Petersburg,
the construction fwhich was entrust
ed without competition t.6 Professor
Peter Behrens, one of German's most
prominent architects. His efforts to
achieve a structure of massive and
monumental simplicity, as , demanded
by Emperor William, were not alto
gether happy, though with a freer
hand he doubtless would have bten
more successful. St. Petersburg speaks
of the German building as a croEs be
tween a cold storage warehouse and a
prison. ntirely out of harmony with
the other buildings facing St. Isaak's
square, around which are the best edi
fices of the Russian capital.
A German electrical firm, competing
with American firms in the same busi
ness, has Just carried off a $3,000,000
contract for an electrical plant in
Chile, to b; constructed with Ameri
can capital. This contract covers only
the first installations', and the. Gernjaa
concern will be on the ground for fur
ther extensions which are expected ul
t'mately to amount to several million
dollars more. ,
The plant is that of an American ex
ploitation company, which foresees a
great development of the west coast
of South America after the opening of
the Paiiema canal, and la preparing to
work copper deposits In northern
Chile. The first . contract cover the
construction cf a- main elecn-ical sta

power is to be transmitted on a high

MARVELS OF PHOTOGRAPHY.
How Creatures Invisible to the Eye
Are Shown Monster.
Photographing the invisible sounds
like a misnomer, but correct to say in
visible by the unaided eye. This com
plex and valuable science Is revealing
wonders In tho excessively minute,
and myriad objects, animate and inan
imate, are brought to view whose ex
istence has all along been unknown.
Two methods of Illuminating the ob
jects nre in use strong llcht is pass
ed through very thin layers'of the sut
stance cr reflected from the outside
6tirface of thick masses and also from
the external portions of exceedingly
sum II opaque bodies.
These solid particles can be placed
on glass slides or floated In transpar
ent liquids, as a drop of water be
tween two very thin glasses. Pluch
the glasses close together; there Is no
danger of killing the smaller kinds of
animals, such as bacteria and microbes.
They have plenty of room In a film of
water so thin as to be beyond Imagi
nation. The magnifying lenses for expan
sion of Images of these minute objects
require tbe most consummate skill la
manufacture, the mlcrocamera like
wise, and the two combined are tri
umphs of hutnau genius. Tbe finished
products, the perfected pictures, are
highly educational. Many different
kinds of greatly Improved glass are
now made in Jena, Germnny, and
these hnve almost revolutionized mi
croscopy. And the woudcrs accom
plished by using the most sensitive
plates ever made, and these with many
different kinds of waves of light, are
almost beyond comprehension.
The "Arabian Nights" people are
eclipsed. Thus put a drop of stagnant
water on glass, lay a thin plate upon
It, press down, and tho layer of water
will be thin Indeed. Put It under the
microscope, turn bright light through
the lnyer, pass this light Into the very
small camera and let it fall on a pre
pared moving film; then the amazing
effect of animals In motion is to be
fixed on a film that is itself iu motion.
This film, a long strip. Is then placed
on rollers and unwound, so that it will
puss powerful projecting lensea In a
moving picture outfit.
This Is, Indeed, photographing tbe

earth no such aid to refined research
into nature's labyrinths has been dis
covered. Then a large audience can
see all that there Is In a minute drop
of water on a screen from ten to six

eyes of the people. Thousands of new
species of minute living organlsma nre
