Canada's Water Power.
It has been estimated by engineers
that the available water power in
Canada, both developtedi and indevel
'oped, is capable of generating 18,832,
000 horsepower, of which 7,398,100
horsepower are available in populated
The utilization of this water pow
er is rapidly increasing. During last
year the installation 6t plints was
conipiefed with a total of 0,400 horse
otict.~ Deyvgopinents now tnder con
struction will produce 370,000 horse
power; and projects contemplated for
the near future will add 750,000 horse
power. The waterpowers in Canada
already developed have a cnpneity of
2.400,000 horsepower. The "white
c"al," that for ages IEnd been rutnn in
to waste, is now being made to turn
the wheels of industry and to light
Canada's streets and dwellings.

MOON AS ALLY OF FARMER
Agriculturist Asserts Ho Courts His
Sweetheart and Plants His Corn
by Luna's Light.
A contribujor to the New York Trib
une, living in the country, Is alarmed
lest the scientists blow up the moon.
He very properly says that the city
man doesn't appreciate the moon; in
fact, he seldom sees it. But out in the
country the moon serves a real pur
pose, and it ought to be protected from
onslaughts from the rockets of the sci
entists. The contributor's letter is so
delightful, and as It contains as much
wisdom as many other letters we read
we quote at length:
"Nobody knows what the moon Is
made of. Maybe it's made out of some
kind of mineral that will explode when
this flash powder goes ofl on it. And let
me tell you, Mr. Editor, that wouldn't
be a very funny thing for anybody to
have the moon blow up.
"Folks In the city don't know any
thing about the moon, whether It Is
anything or whether it ain't, and they
don't care. But we folks that live In
the country use the moon a great deal.
I courted m1y wife by inooniight, and
my oldest boy 1,i doing the same thing
with i huis girl. I've planted Iay corn In
the full of the moon for forty years anl
never hail i poor erop. Besides, we use
the moon in lots of other ways. I can't
hardly think what. life would be here
in the country withiout tihe moon."
Aye, aye, sir, we are for you--espe
clally since you sveetn to know how to
court. It Is been ia marvel to us for
years how a city boy ninaiges to i'all
in love with a girl whin the light eaine

the friendly moon.-Colunbus Dls

One Man Is Crew.
Recent naval tests have disclosed
the remarkable characteristics of a
new form of miniature torpedo boat,
so low In the water that It has almost
the invisibility of a submarine, ac
cording to a recent announcement in
Popular Mechanles Magazine, ac
companied by several interesting 11
lIstrations of the curious craft. It is
operated by one man. It is but 10 feet
long, and weighs 8.500 pounlds with its
single torpedo. The entire forward
half of the boat is 'the torpedo chamii
her, and that part of the hull is U
shallped to conform to the big projec
tile, while the (eck above is hinged
along one side to permit the torpedo
to be ht ols(ed in. To discharge it, the
whole roinded how plate is lifted up
like a gate, flooding the chamber and
permitting the torpedo to go forth on
the power of its own propeller.
