THE DAILY GATE CITY
TWO OF THE SEVEN WONDERS OF THE MODERN WORLD.
A spirited voting contest has just been concluded In Germany to decide what constitutes the seven cblef
wonders of the twentieth Century. After the enormous volume of votes cast were counted It was found that the
majority had placed the wireless telegraphy at the head of the list, as mlgbt be expected, and the Panama canal
second. It is gratifying to find that popular opinion on the continent should so generally recognize this American
achievement. The third of the seven wonders, it was dccided, is the dirigible airship, next In order the flying ma-!
chine, radium, the cinematograph and the steamship Imperator.
An extraordinary photograph Is reproduced herewith which shows two of the seven wonders of the modern
world in close proximity. By a, luck^btece the plicifa^a fe$u|rh*fucaugbt the dirigible airship pansa and the

It is surprising to find that tbe alrsblp appears so large in comparison with the great steamer. The Imperator

even the Imperator bas been surpassed by her sister ship, tbe Vaterland, measuring 950 feet in length and sur*
