Another Ice Automobile
A "caterpillar', motor car, designed
to tread the Arctic snows and tow sleds ,
of food and supplies into the Candle
district, trod the vitrified brick paving
of First avenue yesterday afternoon to
the delight o I a good sized crowd.
The machine is built from the body
of a motor car to the order of Charles
Daukert, of Candle. Dankert, who has
spent twenty years in the North, plans
to ran an automobile freight into Can
dle. The Emery machine shop built ;
the car from Dankert^s plan, elaborat
ing on the idoa and making it practie- ;
able.
On either side of the automobile in
place of wheels is an endless chain of j
wooden treads, which revolves about
the axles. These treads are designed
to walk over soft snow where automo
bile wheels would sink. Each .belt or
chain of treads is about three feet wide
and capable of sustaining the car in
the softest snow or mud.
In order to steer the apparatus each 1
side is under separate control so that
one belt can be stopped while the other
cart ies the ear around a corner, lu ad- ;
dition to thH there will be a long, trail
like rudde: with a similar tread, which
will project behind and help turn the !
car.
The snow car crawled out from ihej
machine shop yesterday afternoon to
the great delight of all the idlers for
blocks arouud. Under its own power
it waddled down to the Alaska Steam
ship Co. dock, where it was loaded
aboard the steamship Yucatan, bound
for Nome.
The car has been building in Seattle
for the past three months. ? P.-JL.
A rich, clothier, being advised to try
the Bath waters, requested his physi
cian to recommend him to a doctor
who might be relied upon, which was
done. Not fancying Bath, he in a few
weeks heard something wonderful said
of Cheltenham^ and told his Bath
Aesculapius he would go there if he
would give him a letter to a skilled
physician of the place, describing his
case. This the doctor promised and
performed, and had a liberal remuner
ation for hi* additional trouble. Our
clothier set off early on a flue summer
morning, arid as his chaise was driviug
slowly along the road ho thought it
would be no great breach of confidence
to open thn doctor's packet and see the
particulars of his own case. This he
did with great care, and rafter unfolding
a quantity of blank paper, came to the
letter, which was couched in the follow
ing words: "Dear sir:? The bearer is a
fat Wiltshire clothier; make the moct
of him." ? Ex.
A farmer, calling at the village school
was asked by the master if he would
like to question the scholars. So he
said to the class: "If either of you can
tell me the weight of the moon, the
depth of the sea, and what I am think
ing about, i will give a prize of six
pence."' There were twin brothers in
the class named Sam and Joe. Now,
Joe put up his hand, and the farmer!
said: "Well, Sam, what io your answer?" j
Joe replied: "The weight of the moon i
is four quarters, the depth of the ocean I
is a stone's throw," and then he paused, i
The farmer respouded, "Well, Sam,i
what am .1 thinking about?" "Why,
you thiuk you are talkiug to Sam when
it is bis brother JoeJr

Greatest Sea Depth **?
"Is there any place where soundings
hare been attempted and no bottom
found; what is the greatest depth ever
found; is it a fact that soundings have
been attempted where the lead went to _
such depth that it would not sink any
further, presumably owing to the im
mensely depth reached and consequent
ly density of the water?"
Answer ? The above questions were^.
submitted to Lieutenant McMillan, U.
& N., nautical expert at the branch hy
drographic office in the Merchants' Ex
change, who is perhaps the best in
formed man in the service on these
subjects, and who in reply stated that
the greatest known depth at present is
5,2G9 fathom*, 11 fathoms (66 feet) less
than six statute miles, about 70 miles
southeast of Guam; also that if sound
ings have been made and no bottom
found it was not due to the depth
reached, but toj some disarrangement
with the apparatus, aud abo that the
lead will sink to any depth, provided
the wire is long enough, the belief that
it would eventually get to a depth
where it would nolouger sink beiog er- '
ro-neous. ? Kail way and Marine News.
A 8tory comes from Victoria, where
street car court actors are not allow^?
to haudle the corporation money, but
passengers are confronted with a slotted
box in which tbey drop their fare. Mrs.
Brown and her young 6ou, Willie, were
frequent travelers on the line. Chil
dren's fares were three ceuts, and
adult9 were compelled to pay the usual
five cents. It was on one of these trips
that Willie had donned his first pair of
k>ng pauts, and ma put in the usual
fare, three for Willie and five for her
self. "Why>" said he, "the boy has on
long pants." "All right," said the
mother, "then take five for Willie and
three for me." A demure looking little
lady was sitting in the corner w'lth a
satisfied air which read: "Here's wbeiV^
I ride for nothing."
Dr. Herschell Clifford Parker, vice
president of the Explorers* club, from
which Dr. Cook, once its president, was
expelled, is about to start on his thinV
attempt to reach the top of Alt. Mc-'
Kinley. On the second of his former
attempts Dr. Parker disproved the
claims of Dr. Cook that he had planted
the American flag on the summit and
On the expedition about to begin Dr.
Parker said he had hopes of being suc
cessful in reaching the top of the
mountain, which is said to be 1,000 feet
higher than any other on the American
continent.
