Balloons for Naval Purposes.
Some experiments have leen lately
conducted liy the Freucb. navy which
will have an important influence on the
future rise of the balloon in time of war.
A balloon was constructed with a ca
pacity of 11.300 feet, especially for ex
perimental purposes. It was inflated
with hydron, which was carried in
reservoirs under a fressnre.of 100 atmos
pheres. A tail rope 130 feet long served
to connect the balloon with a ship of
the fleet when the balloon was required
to be kept captive for reconnoitring pnr
poses. It was found that on a clear day
all important objects within a radius
of eighteen to twenty-fonr miles were
clearly distinguished. Another very
important rxvint was that tho waters of
the sp.i, when observed from a consider
able altitude, were found to be singu
larly clear, and the details of the bottom
were in one of the ascents perfectly dis
tinguishable, even at a depth of eighty
This porr.rarity allowed an observer
in the balloon to follow the movements
of the submarine boat Gymnote, during
its recent trials, without losing sight of
it for a single moment, whatever its
depth of immersion. The balloon used
on this oceas-on was very stoutly con
structed, having been a short time lx-fore
towed at a speed of 10 j knots an hour
for a distance of 21 knots by a torpedo
boat without being any the worse.
New York Commercial Advertiser.
A Baby with Tvro Heads.
Carefully preserved in a small tin
casp. in the Smithsonian Institution,
at "Washington, D. C. not on public ex
hibition, but accessible to medical stu
dents and others interested, reposes one
of the greatest curiosities of the Nine
teenth century. Tho curiosity in ques
tion is a baby with two heads; or, per
haps, it would bo more propej to speak
of it or theai as a double baby. The
heads, which are about the size of base
balls, are perfect; so are the two trunks,
which come together r.t the waist.
The four sjoultTers, four arms and two
chests are natural and normal. The
liips are of the -proper size for an infant
of its apparent age, as are also the legs
and feet. Every part of the child seems
natural enough until the point of union
is reached, the place where the ribs of
the two boys grow together. From there
down the freak is only a single human
being. The scientists of the institute
regard it as a much greater freak than
the Siamese twins, that is, providing it
had lived. St. Louis Republic.
Queer Vegetable Remedies.
Some of the vegetable remedies used
in medicine, are exceedingly curious.
Doubtiess you have observed what are
called "galls" upon trees. They occur
upon all trees and upon many other
plants of every sort, being caused by in
sects which bore into the bark and
build around themselves secure places
for hiding end laying their eggs. In due
time they bore their way out, appearin-r
in the shajo of full fledged flies, and
leave their empty houses behind them.
The oak is most particularly chosen by
these insects, and in Asia Minor a large
business is made of collecting the empty
galls for mai-ket. It is from that part of
the world that most of the supply comes.
Their chief use in medicine is an astrin
gent in diarrhoea. Oak galls contain some
thing like 70 per cent, of tannic acid, and
it is froia them tU.:t t'lnners obtain their
most imporraui: i....! rial for tho prepa
ration leather. However, galls from
all sorts of plants have very much the
fame properties and constitution.
