SHAKSPCARE IN SHORTHAND
German Re riting the Plays in !iza
Dr. Eduard Engel has written the fol
lowing letter to one of the Berlin news
"In a lecture I delivered some years
ago to the,Berlin .Society of Steno;rra.
pbers, wbo use Stolse's system. I sug
gested that those accurately acquainted
with the oldest English shorthand sys
tems of the sixteenth cent;ry sh-.uld
try to ascertain whether many of'the
deficiencies :of the text of Shakspeare
might nt be explained by stenogra ph
le mistakes. The idea was suggested to
me by the old and well-founded conjec
ture of Shakspearean scholars that the
oldest copies of Shakspeares plays-tho
so-called quartos-- were printed from
stenographic no'.es, taken in the thea
ter, and that many of the unintelligibili
ties of the text are due to this. My
suggestion fell en fruitful soil. and I
have now the pleasure of making the
excellent work of a young savant. wh4

contradictions between them and the

defects of that stenographic system and
the indexterity of the stenographers of
that time.. Herr Dewischeit has con
firmed my conjecture almost beyond
my own expectation. He is at present
the only person -who possesses all the
regtisite qualifteatioxs- for this quite
new kind of text-investigation. and it Is
to be wised -that he. with his accurate
knowledge of the oldest English sten
ography. combined with solid Shak
spearean scholarship, would subject
the texts of the dramas to a thorough
reinvestiga-tion. The purification of the
text of Shakspeare is raised by him for
the first time from arbitrary fantastic
ality to the, rank of a strict science,
with which;: however, only Shakspear

ally trained In stenographic questions
are at liberty to busy themselves. Sel

The System in Modern Navies is Al

7flciency - Provicions For Accident
or Injury - The Case of the Texas.
The best electrical installation tobe
found anywhere is aboard the modern
battleship. There the work is con
stantly under the severest tests; the
specifications prepared by the Navy
Department, under which the work is
done, cover every possible detail; the
highest grade of material and work
manship is required throughout, and
:he work is done under rigid inspec
tion. On older vessels the electrical
equipment was practically confined to
lighting circuits, but one after an
othxer various details of work per
formed by auxiliary engines have been
transferred to electric motors. until
now little but the dynamos remain for
the steam engines. The iearsarge
and Kentucky, recently larnched at
Newport News, mark the latest ad
7ance. In these ships the turrets and
ammunition hoists, for the first time
in our navy, will be worked by electric
The main business of electricity on
board a warship is still the lighting.
The American Electrician contains an
exhaustive article by E. W. Countiss
on "Naval Marine Electric Lighting,"
with fifty illustrations, from which the
present account is largely derived.
Every ingeur.ity is exerted to secure
the largest amount of illumination
from the least number of lamps and
so make the weight as little as possi
ble. The plant of the Texas, which
operates 583 lights, weighs about forty
tons, a large item where every hun
dred-weight and almost everypoundis
figured out. Formerly it was the
practice to enclose the wires in iron
tubes, thereby adding much to the
weight of the equipment; but now the
wires are run in wooden mouldings,
much the same as those in use in
buildings on land.
The generators are wonderfully ef
ficient. Some of them have carried
overloadsof 100 to 150 per cent. with
out sparking or heating. They are so
designed that the magnetic field is in
appreciable at a distance of fifteen feet.
Usually there are three generators con
nected into the switchboard, so ar
ranged that they can be rua either
singly or together, to operate either
one part or all of the light equipment.
Although in itself complex the
switch-board of a man-of-war is simple
compared with other switchboards. An
attempt has been made to secure uni
formity throughout the navy so that a
man may go from one vessel to an
other and, yet know how to work each
board. There are two main divisions
known respectively as the "lighting"
and "motor" circuits. The lighting
circuit is again divided into six di
visions, according to the use required
of them, called "continual," "battle,"
"geieral,' ''sea," "day" and "spe
*Wherever possible~the wires are car
ried under the.protective deck and are
so connected with feeders and covered
and interlaced that even if most of the.
system should be shot-away, w.h'at re
mains would still be effective. In the
most impojtint places, as thae bridge
and the; magazines, the system is
double; in other places, as the side
lihts, masthead and towing lights,
two lamps are provided, so that if one
fails the-other may be used. In the
magazines the lanterns are enclosed in
light boxes, provided with heavy
bull's-eye lenses. *The lanterns .also
have candles, so that in case the plant
is'totally disabled the~men in the maga
zines can still serve out ammunition.
On some ships, as on the Texas, large,
narrow spaces built between the maga
zines supply the place- of the boxes,
and lanterns placed in these illuminate
several magazines at one time.
One of the most important items in
the equipment of a battleship is the
search-light. The standard sizes are!
18, 24 and 30 inches, the sizes given
being the diameter of the reflecting~
mirror at the back of the arc. The
movement of the light can be con
trolled either by hand or by motors.
The iendency recently has been to
the use of motors, because by this
system the light can be placed high
up in a commanding position, while
the operator remains on deck or below.
The controller is a small box with a
projecting handle, so connected by1
wires -with the motors in the drum
containing the light that by raising or
towering the handle the beam of light
is raised or lowered or turned to the,
right or left as the handle is turnedI
in the same direction. The lights will
burn six hours with one trimming,
and an 18-inch light will rende- clear
ly visible a light-colored object ten by
twenty feet at a distance of two and
one quarter miles. The 30-inch light
will show the same ob.iect at three and
The Ardois signal hoist, with which
most of the modern warships are
equipped, is composed of four double
lanterns, similar to ie truck lights.
Each half of each lantern has a sep

with a general return wire forming
the heart of the cable. As the two
halves of the lanterns are of different
colors, thirty combinations can be
made, each one shown on the key

THE SHIP'S RUDDER.
Its Two Partc Naid e Difference in the
Strain That t&aea Upon Their.
The rudder of a wooden ship is com
posed of the stalk and the backing,
which are so joined together as to
form in effect a single piece. The
complete rudder is coppered, to pro
tect it from worms. and then, besides
being practically all in one piece, it
has that appearance also.
The stalk is the part to which are
attached the pintles. or pivots, by
which the rudder is suspended and
held in place, these going through
eyes set in the ship's sterupost. The
stalk runs up through .he stern of the
ship, and to its head is bolted a cap
to which are attached the ropes by
means of which the rudder is con
trolled. The backing is the blade part
of the rudder.
By far the greatest strain comes on
the stalk, and the greatest strain of all
comes on the head of the stalk -the
rudder head-where it is held. The
stalk is made of the wood most likely
to stand the strain, carefully selected,
sound, well-seasoned oak, while the
backing is made of spruce or hard
pine. The stalk is of a single, solid,
massive piece, stout as an oak tree,
and indeed of the dimeiisions of a
small oak-something that a man can
pin his faith to, if he can have faith in
any wood-while the backing or blade
is. like many modern wooden masts,
built up. It would be difficult, if not
impossible, to find trees that, would
yield planks big enough for the pur
pose in a single piece, and the built
up backing, made of pieces of selected
wood, can easily be made of ample
strength to withstand any strain that
will be brought upon it.
As to the stalk. stout and solid as
the oak may be, the head may be
twisted by the force of a tremendous
blow from a wave upon the rudder,
or, under the repeated strains of long
use, the head may split, and so make
the stalk useless. Then the rudder is
taken out and fitted with a new stalk.
A suitable stick is selected and worked
down to the proper size and form, and
very probably the old backing is at
tached to it. The life of a rudder
stalk would probably be twelve to four
teen years. The backing might last
as long as the ship.-New York Sun.
Dreaming Is a Mental Recreation.
"The popular idea or impression is
that when persons dream much during
a night to that extent their sleep is
interfered with," remarked a well
known physician to a Star reporter,
"and it is a frequent thing to hear
persons say that they dreamed so much
during the night that they did not
sleep or rest well. Now, the fact is,
dreaming is as much rest or mental
recreation as actual sleep in some
respects, although it may not appear
so on first thought. It is hard. to
prove this by actual experiment, be
cause the conditions are so difficult to
produce. There is a ceitain amount
f evidence which can be used, how
ever, to prove the proposition. Time
and time again- when persons. have
been waked up by- other's they have
explained as a reason that they did
not respond quicker that they were so
ngaged in dreaming that they did not
hear the call. It is as clearly proven

aLke a~parent, for instance a mother,
when she is- sleeping soundly, as she
thinks, she can hear her child -when~ it
turns oiver or moves in its crib. Now,
the same parent in a dreamy condition
would hardly hear a knock at the
door or other loud noise. The dream
so controls the brain that during its
pendency the sense of hearing is
The Czar's Eccentric Physician.
Dr. Zakharin, the late Czar's favor
ite physician, who recently died,
started life as a humble butcher's
boy. Turning his attention to medi
cine he seon attracted the notice of
his sovereign, and becoming the best
known doctor in Russia, before mid
de age had secured a handsome com
petency. He was somewhat of a
character, and his feats of eccentric
ity added to his fame. With so much
patronage at his command he always
insisted upon being obeyed. When
the state of the late Emperor became
alarming the Governor of Moscow re
eived a message from'St. P'etersburg
ordering him to send Professor
Zakharin without delay. The Gov
ernor dispatched his Aide-de-Camp to
the doctor. "In two hours,"~ said the
officer, "the express train will start."
"The express! W'.hat do you mean?
exclaimed the Professor. "The Em
peror is ill, and you talk to me1 about
a train leaving in two hours! Go to
the railway manager and command
him to get a rpecial train ready for

of that time the train was speeding

CESSFULLY UNDER WATER.
Artificial Light Can Be Employed-Great
Benefits May Be Obtained in the Ex
amination of Sunken Wrecks-71ore
Valuable Than Divers' Observations.
Professor Louis Boutan, of the Sor
bonne, has written an article for the
Century describing his successful ex
periments in "Submarine PhotogL-a
phy." Professor Boutan, descending
in a diving suit, took a number of
photographs of the bottom of the sea
at various depths. Some of these pic
tures are reproduced in the article,
including one taken by magnesium
light. Professor Boutan says:
The extent of the surface of the
earth covered by water is vast, since
it far surpasses that of the dry land.
What do we know of this part of the
globe hidden by the seas and oceans?
Very little, it must be admitted. Ex
cept along the immediate edge of these
immense bowls which can be explored
in diving-bells, the means which
naturalists have at their disposal for
examining these depths are most rudi
mentary. Nobody can go down into
them, as the tremendous pressure of
the water renders this iipossible.
For a long time, therefore, it was
imagined that the bottom of the sea
was one vast extent of mud, without
the presence of living things; but
numerous scientific expeditions fin
ally proved that such was nottbe case,
and that a multitude of curious and
even fantastic animals were to be
The product of._ a-i-gle'catch, in
cluding many sharks, as made by us at
the Arago laboratory, convinced me
that at a depth of cight hundred
meters the bottom of the ocean is full
of life. All these big sharks are car
nivorous. In order to live, these ani
mals must eat other animals; so there
must be many other animals whence
these come, although we know almost
nothing about the-i.
As regard the sea, the naturalist is
in much the same .situation a- would
be an inhabitant of the moon who
could live in ethereal space, but could
not breathe the air which envelops
our earth. Let us suppose that this
voyager from the ethereal regions
should come in contact with our at
mosphere. He would float about the
highest strata without being able to
penetrate them, separated from the
earth by the gases which surround it.
What must he do if he wishes to know
something of what exists below the
layer of clouds which hide our globe
from his view.? He would do as our
naturalists - have . done-construct
dredges and nets, and, having weight
ed them, would let them down like
the anchor of a balloon and try and
pull them along the surface of the
earth. Do you think that with such
primitive instruments he could obtain
very precise ideas of the terrestrial
globe? Every agile animal would flee
before the apparatus.which, if it did not
get irretrievably caught in' some oak,
rock, or lofty factory chimney, might
bring back, after having. scraped for
some time along th~e .-surffee of the
earth, bits of leaves, pebble~s mingled

What a change will come over the
situation the moment it becomes pos
sible to let down to the f>5ttom of the

vided with a powerful artificial light!
Although this camera will not be able
to bring back pictures of wide extent,
may it not succeed in satisfactorily
photographing one hundred square
meters of space? And will not such
photographs contain a most precious
fund of information?
Everything leads one to believe that
it will soon be possible to construct
photographic apparatus which will ac
complish its work successfully at any
depth of water. But without going so
far as this, and without launching forth
into hppotheses which have not yet
been realized, it may be asserted that
submarine photography can already
produce useful results.
In the immediate vicinity of the
coast, the phonographing -of land
scapes, the interiors of grottoes, ani
mals caught in their medium, fur
nishes the student useful and precious
information; and, -from the industrial
point of view, one may sec how it can
be employed practically. Suppose.
for instance, a ship to be at the bot
oin of the sea. How are we to know
its exact position, and to determine
the extent of the da:nage which it his
suffered? A good submarine photo
graph would be more valuable to the
engineers than all the information
which divers could fur-nishi.

It is stated by an authority on Ccn
tral American'trade that a large pro
portion of imports in those countries
consists of English cotton cloths. This
should be a valuable wuggestion to the
progressive business men of the south
ern states. A market, approachable
by cheap water carriage, lies at their
very doors, needing the product of
their fields and looms. For such a
climate coarse fabrics, easily woven
and of small cost, would be naturally
demanded. These goods should be
made in the United States and be the

the Chicago-Times Herald.
Practical steps for the cultivation of
sugar beets in Illinois have been taken.
The latest movement in this direction
is the offering of premiums by the
State Board of Agriculture for the best
sample of fifteen sugar beets raised on
a patch of not less than one-quarter
acre, with certain restrictions. The
importance of sugar in domestic con
sumption can be readily realized by
the statement that nearly as much
sugar as flour is used by the average
family. Any movement which looks
toward the supplying of this constant
and enormous demand by a home
grown crop is of the first importance.
