I i For the first time in the history of i railroading a train ferry has crossed j the English channel from Newhuven, j | Kngland, to Dtep|>e. France, carrying tiny cars, says Popular Meehan- ; les Magasine. Since early In the war thousands of British railway rurs have been employed In Franco In transport lug troops and supplies, hut they have j all been transferred to the continent by freighters. The Inauguration of ferry service Indicates that the dlffl cultles created by very pronounced tides huve been overcome at last to the mutual advantage of these two al lies. At Dieppe the water level varies as much as 81 feet. To overcome this, short bridges, attached at one end to the doek and resting on large floats, are employed. During loading und un loading the ferry Is chained to the | The -wo boat and dock pter us well, smokestacks Hre located one at either side of the cruft, leaving space for trucks down the Center of the deck.

LESS SINKABLE SHIP COMING Hull Consista of Two Parallel Cylin drical Shell» Joined Throughout Length by Diaphragma. The French government ha a con tracted with the Foundation company, ! ; which la building wooden ahlpa for the Emergency Fleet corporation, to turn j out for It five cargo "nonslokuble »hip«" of 4,200 tons dead weight. The hull of these »hip«, »ay» the New York Sun. I« to consist of two ( parallel cylindrical shells joined ! throughout their length by a series of ' heavily braced diaphragms. Each eyl Indrlcal shell Is divided not only Into watertight compartments by trans verse bulkheads, but also Is Isolated j entirely from the adjoining shell and 1 j from the sealed »pace between the two. The lutter space, which has a watertight bottom and deck, Is not used for cargo, but Is provided solely j for reservo buoyancy. ! "It should not be called an uosink- : able ship," said Mr. Boero. "I would cull It rather one of the less slnk uhle ships. It Is seldom that a ship I bus recel vod more than one torpedo. U Is extremely Improbable that a ship will be struck by torpedoes on both side». We have tested an experi mental design thoroughly at Paris, and have found It entirely satisfac tory. The space required for the spe cial hull construction does not matt*- : rlnlly lessen the bulk of cargo that can be carried, that the ship will keep afloat after It has been torpedoed."

A result of experiments In French factories Is the production of an exeel | lent cement us a by-product of beet | sugar refining. The first step in the I production of sugar from beets Is boil ing them. It has heretofore been cute j tomitry to throw away as valueless the scum formed on the caldrons. Hut It | has now been discovered that this scum contains large quantities of cur- | bonute of lime It Is estimated that [ 4,000 tons of the carbonates can he j recovered from 70.000 tons of beets. 1 To this quantity of the carbonate 1.100 ; tons of clay ts added, the resultant ! product being s good cement. The best scum is pumped Into large reser voirs uud allowed to evaporate for a certain length of time before being i mixed with the clay. It Is then stirred ; or beaten for an hour before betug fed Into rotary ovens such as are used In making Portland renient. —The Argo naut. The Sailor's Widow.
