1IN TO CIRCLE GLOBEJ AUTOS Mrs. Harriet Clark Fisher Starts On an Ijdeal Trip with Four Touring Cars EQUIPPED WITH SMALL ARSENAL With Her Go a Botton Bull .Terrier, Tour Large Automobile, Chauf 'sur, a Maid and a Secretary She Will Be Gone a Year. Trenton. N. J. Mrs. Harriet Chirk Hslier, whom Wu-Ting-Kang, the Chinese Minister, once described as the most remarkable woman in Amer ica, palled from New York on the American liner New York to begin an automobile tour of the world. With her went "Honk-Honk," her Boston bull mascot, four large touring cars, a chauffeur, a maid and a secretary. Mrs. Fisher Is the widow of Lieutenant-Commander Fisher, of the United States Navy, and since his death she has managed the Eagle An vil Works at Trenton, which he estab lished. The car in which Mrs. Fisher ex pects to make the greater part of her trip Is a forty horse-power machine, with a forty-gallon gasoline tank and a 400-mile capacity on one filling. The o!1kt curs are not so powerful and will be merely used in case of neces sity. They will carry the baggage and will be transported by express from point to point, with the maid aboaiu, to meet Mrs. Fisher at the various scheduled stops. Similar arrangements have been mrile by which Mrs. Fisher will find at vuiious points all the necessary changes of clothing, the food sup plies and bucIi other incidentals as will help to make the adventurous trip as comfortable as possible. Mrs. Fisher -intends to start from Southampton in one of the two re lief cars and make a tour of Eng land, Ireland and Scotland, where the roads are considered good, before she crosses the Channel to France. In Paris she will make her real start in the big machine which Is equipped with a full camping outfit and a small arsenal, for Mrs. Fisher believes In leaving nothing to chance. The roads of France and Switzer land will afford a pleasant trip to i ake Como, where Mrs. Fisher has a utlful estate, called the Villa Car- l, facing the water. Then she . .1 start through Northern Italy for ' '(.nna. Thence she will set her flag . '.r Southern Russia, and through Asl . 1 tic Russia she win inarch On to Port Said. The Arabian Desert will be Mrs. Fisher's next objective, after a view of Egypt, and she plans then to make an extensive tour of India, driving from Bombay in the west to Calcutta on the eastern shore, thence up through Burmah, and on to China, and then again to Japan, where she hopes to arrive when cherries are ripe again. A brief sojourn there and Bhe will tak,e steamer for San Fran cisco and start on the last lap of her Journey across the American conti nent. Her objective point will be New York, but she will continue on her bar to Trenton, her home town. Though schedules bave been ar ranged and Mrs. Fisher expects to see Trenton again by next summer, there Is no desire to make a record-break-tag trip, and throughout the Journey safety and comfort will be the gulld Ing stars. Many extraordinary adventures are sure to be met on the way, for Mrs. Fisher's itinerary contemplates the passing through provinces whose in habitants have probably never even heard of, much less seen, a devil wagon. It Is for this reason that Mrs. Fisher carries with her an, as sortment of firearms which she and her secretary, Harold Fisher Brooks, are quite competent to make good use of whenever necessary. Being an ar dent photographer as well as an auto lover, Mrs. Fisher hopes to bring back a great collection of Interesting pic tures of the lands she visits. WEDS HIS STEPDAUGHTER.

Frankfort, Ky. Michael Hayes, ol Ruthorford County, has a mule whose age Is known to be thirty-nine. Mr. Hayes has owned her since 1870. He worked the mule until a few years ago and tben made a pensioner of the faithful old animal. FUN 10 HARNESS THE TIDES An Old 8tory In Canada, but It la Heard Once Again. Cannda hears every little while that some one Is going to harness tho mighty tides of th Bay of Fundy ind put them to work; but the tides have gone on doing as they please and the story has been rnnkeJ with the re portwhich usually originates In Maine ihnl gold is to be extracted from the snn:ls of the senshore. A tremendous amount oi power is grins to waste all the time in the Bay of Fundy and' the scheme to put this power to some account is reasonable etiiiugh on paper. It ha been pro rcped again by J. L. Wcller of St. Catherine's, Ontario, who la organiz ing a company and has applied for a ch.irter from the Dominion Govern ment. The tide rises In the Bny of Fundy sometimes as high as sixty feet. A rise of forty feet Is ordinary. When it is remembered that the lide Is eith er rising or falling for more than twenty hours out of the twenty-four It will bo seen that there Is almost con tinuous power. Tho vast extent of the tidal area Is the most difficult factor in tho prob lem. The water sweeps up broad estuaries for the most part; at few pl es Is there such a thing as a nar row passage through rocky walls. To I'M'r.ess the Fundy tide will require kma stretches of heavy stone em bankments. Mr. Weller's plan, so far as he has announced It. Is to build power plants below Moncton, N. B., on the Petit uxliac tliver, at Amherst, N, S., on at. arm of Cumberland Bay, and at Eonu points on the Basin of Minas. The movement of the tlda in the i'etltcodlac River represents an ener gy ol about 3.000,000 horse-power a Cay. Tho river beJ below Moncton Is more than a mile wide. The banks are gentle slopes. It is here that the bore, a wall of water that marks the -omlng of tho tide. Is seen at its best. Its power seems quite worth while harnessing, for In spring tide seasons It is some six feet high and It rushes up the riv er at express train speed. Following the bore the tide pours in steadily and forcefully. It has the strength of a spring freshet in a mountain river. Mr. Waller's plan Is to build exten sive dams in the river bed, in order to force all this power Into one spot. The dams would be built so as to catch the power of the falling tide as well to get It coming and going. The aim is to develop only 100,000 horse power at first. The problem at Amherst seems easier, for there the water is confined within narrower limits. In the Basin of Minas the problem is the hardest, for there is little natural opposition. There is a good market for power all around the Bay of Fundy. It could run the electric lines in the cities and towns, it could work the mills, it could be used in developing the oil lands near the mouth of the Petltcodl ac and the ccal mines near Amherst. The work at Niagara has made the distribution and employment of col lected energy a simple matter. Canada, however, will not believe until it sees. A Joke on 'Sir Robert Ball. Sir Robert Ball, the famous astron omer, recently told the House of Com mons Committee on the Waste of Daylight that as an astronomer he thought daylight was altogether a mistake. ThlB notwithstanding the fact that he, Sir Robert, Is a yachts man and a golf player. The author of "The Starry Realms" and of "The Popular Guide to the Heavens" Is nat urally addicted to the night side of tilings. Being an Irishman, too, he Is, of course, as much a humorist as an astronomer. On one occasion, when visiting Shakespeare's native birth place, Sir Robert came off second best hi a tilt with his erstwhil6 landlady. I will give you a lesson In astronomy, madam." ho said. "Have you ever 'lcard of the great platonlc year, when everything must return to its first condition? In 26,000 yean we shall be here again, eating a dinner pre cisely like this. Will you give us credit till then?" "Yes," was the pompt reply. "You were here 26,000 years ago and left without paying. "Settle the old bill and I'll trust you with the new." Our Poultry Industry. There Is a great awakening In the lojluy industry among the scientists f the country. Twenty or more States have established experiment stations and in addition, three years ago the Department of Agriculture started a station at Baltimore, Mary land. At the State experiment sta tions there are regular courses of in struction ofi poultry raising, while scientific experiments are made to de termine the comparative values of dif ferent breeds and varieties, the best methods of housing and breeding, and the value of the different foods. The roultry Industry has long been desert ed by the scientists and in spite of them, according to figures prepared by Secretary Wilson, the value of the ergs and poultry produced on the farms Inst year was $620,000,000 as much as the cotton crop, seed includ ed, or the hay or the wheat crop. Some Busy Boys. One thousand and sixty-four spar rows were nluughtered by Marquette (Mich.) boys during the three months of the open season for these birds in, a which expired with the close ol February. At the rate of 2 cents I'crd, the feathered prey netted the youngsters a total of 121.28 in boun ties. Much larger payments were made In other Upper Michigan cities.

"There is one thing which we ex port from this country that few peo ple, in fact, no no outside those In the trade, ever know anything about," said S. C. Brown to a Milwaukee Sen tinel reporter. "That Is hair ropes. They are Bhipped mainly to India, though they go to any places where poisonous snakes are plentiful. Every cowboy and plainsman learned years ago that if he did not wish to wake up in the morning and find a rattler for a bed-mate when he bad to sleep out on the prairie, he had to be care ful before he laid down to see that his horse-hair lariat was coiled carefully about him so .hat there was no open ing through which a sna'ie nilgl;' crawl. "No snake will tackle u hair ro;-.o It is the only cure protection against them. Somehow this idea h:u 'perme ated the minds of the Hast Indiana and now they buy these rope3 for pi'n tection against the poisonous sna'ies with which that country abounds. Large numbers of these ropes are shipped to Irdia and adjoining coun tries each year. "Over there they are coiled on the floor around the bed at night and the occupant can lie uown In comfort, cer tain that no snake will ever attempt to pass over that hair rope. It is about the only way any one can be sure of a night's sleep undisturbed by visits from snakes In that country." Game Abounds In Louisiana.
