NOVELTIES IN PHOTOGRAPHY.
An lnteieMtin Instantaneous Photo
erap.i Tlie Host Time of Day.
The cut below is a copy of a photograph
of the explosion of four militnry mines, or
"dry torpe tx"s," as they are called, the ex
plosive materials Ik-Iiik buried in the earth
and intended to check t lie advance of, a
IkxIv of soUIers against a fortified position.
SlMCl.TANEOtS KXTLOSIOS OF FOLK DKY
The picture obtained is a particularly in
teresting a: d succehsful one, showing the
(simultaneous expliwiou of the four mines,
while the enormous amount of earth
thrown into the air indicates the intense
power of tho explosive material used. Au
event like t 'lis, occurring in the midst of
an attacking army of soldiers, would un
doubtedly demoralize the bravest and best
disciplined men. The smaller masses of
earth or stone which are shown as being
thrown, lik; rockets, much higher than
the greater mass of the material, are a
very curious feature, and indicate perhaps
an irregular or uneven action of the ex
plosive mat rial.
The photograph was taken during the
autumn mil iary maneuvers of the Belgian
army. The camera was pliiced within 301
feet of the n ine, and the shutter was esti
mated to give an exposure of 1-300 of a sec
ond. Although the camera v. a violently
shaken by the explosion, the sharpness
and cloanias-i of the photograph show that
the shutter i.iust have operated before the
shock was tr insmittid to the instrument.
An ingcnii :is and useful method of cal
culating the iiour of the day when any ob
ject will lin.e the U'st light for photo
graphing, isiiiustr i'.'il in Fig. 2. Generally
speaking, the bet time for obtaining a
view is when the r..vs of the sun fall di

Great men do not always have great
appetites, and their preferences in the
matter of food may be very humble in
deed. There was no dainty dish which
the royal kitchen of Prussia could pro
vide for King Frederick the Great which
he liked so well as cabbage soup.
American statesmen have often shown
a fondness for simple dishes of their na
tive land, from which they were not to
lie diverted by the most exquisite for
It is related on gmxl authority of Dan
iel Webster that when he was once a
guest at a fine house in New York city
his hostess thought to please her distin
I guished visitor by preparing for him
some dainty dish of which he was fond,
j and which perhaps he might find it dif
ficult to obtain cither in Marshfield or
'Mr. Webster," she said, "is there any
little delicacy of the table of which you
are particularly fond":"'
'"Yes, ma'am," said the statesman;
"there is one dish which I should rather
have at dinner than any other."
'Oh, what is if?"
"Eye and Indian flapjacks!" Youth's
AN IXCI-SIOLS CONTRIVANCE.
To determine this time, take a watch and
hold it horizon .ally with the figure XII on
the dial pointit g toward the north. Then
project an imaginary line from the center
of the dial to var.l t he object to be photo
graphed. The iigi; r.- on the dial which this
line intersects ind! :es the hour at which
the sun will shin-.- most directly upon it.
Thus, in theillust ra: ion, the proper time for
photographing the view shown would be
about 11 o'clock. This method assumes a
knowledge of tl e points of the compass, but
these are casil .- found; or, if one is in a
strange locality a small pocket compass
can be carried.
It will be noticed that this method is in
dependent of th ; hands of the watch itself,
so if the amati tir photographer does not
possess one of hose useful articles, a sim
ple dial drawn t n a piece of cardboard will
answer every purpose. Of course there are
often views or ilijects which can best be
photographed i:. a side light, ami to these
the method desc-ilicd above will uot apply.

by any inslnimet t, with the one exception
of the orgau. It s tone is wonderfully dis

far more agreeable than that of the double
