The Last of the Plagues.
One by one the plagues of Egypt are being abolished by science. The frogs were abolished long ago by the drain-tile. The flees are checked by insect powder, and the darkness that could be felt has melted away before the arc light. The sixth plague still remains in full glory. The fly is al ways with us. The great hr. Rad cllffe used to declare that the three worst annoyances of life were gmoxe, flies and irrelevant questions.—Col ller’s Weekly, THE “TETRAHEDRAL.” Attempted Solution of the Problem of Man’s Flying. It is a queer thought that grave and famous scientists sometimes be take themselves in dead earnest to the childhood sport of blowing bub bles, —not for sport, but to study some very difiicult and hard-to-understand problems that Trouble their learned minds. Perhaps It Is even queerer to see a man whose name is known the world over for his learning, his inven tions, his wonderful mind and his earnestness in the pursuit of knowl edge. chasing after a queer-looking kite and noting its behavior, and do ing this, too, in the most serious man ner. For it is a serious matter, this scientific kite-flying, and the work, as it is done by Dr. Alexander Gra ham Bell, the famous inventor of the 801 l telephone and dozens of other useful things, is a task which he hopes will some day result In a prac tical solution of that most baffling of riddles —how is man to learn to fly? That a plane surface of not too great weight, properly held at an angle with moving air, will rise in the air and stay up. Is a fact known to every boy who ever begged rags from “mother” for the tail of his kite. The problem of “flying” is to get a kite big enough to hold a man or men." strong enough to stand the strain, steady enough to fly without danger and stable enough to fly with out a cord and to alight without de stroying itself! It would seem that if a kite of, sav, ten square feet surface ■would lift ten poi ds in a certain wind, a kite of twenty square feet would lift twenty pounds, and thirty square feet thirty pounds, and so on. But, unfortunate ly for this easy solution of the prob lem, when two or more kites are ad ded, each to each, they lack strength, and, to got the strength, more weight must bo put into the frames and in cross bars and braces: so that, when the kite gets very large, indeed, large enough to lift a great deal of weight, it weighs as much as It will lift! To make a kite which would grow strong er as it was made larger—a kite the lifting power of which would increase just as fast as the weight, and which would be just as strong (in propor tion) big as It was small —was the first step in Dr. Bell’s problem. This baa been done, within wide limits, and the result is a kite called by the hard name of “tetrahedral.” * * * “he tetrahedral kite flies easily: it rise from the ground without a man's having to run with the cord, except in the lightest of breezes. It will fly in a dead calm if pulled fast enough. It has no tail, and needs none; but it flies more steadily in some shapes than in others, and bet ter with the cord at one place than another, and these, also, are special problems that will h*ve to be worked rut to obtain the best results. —From C. H. Claudy’s "Scientific Kite-fly ing” in St. Nicholas.

It is true, perhaps, that he wrote for a limited class.” And so on, for ten minutes. “No.” said the man at the desk, turning again to his work, “you haven’t succeeded in interesting me a bit.” “That's all right,” rejoined the tall man in the suit of faded black, re placing the same volumes in his va lise with imperturbable composure. “1 have just started out canvassing with these books, and I was only practicing on you.

Mr. Charles Reade’s pictorial satire of a Tory squire’s restricted ideas of geography now seems as unfair as Mr. Dickons’ travesty of American poli tics in “Martin Chuzzlewit." The Conservative landholder has become i globe trotter as well as a primrose gathering Imperialist; and not even the narrowest minded Little England er would think of spreading the out line of his county over the whole page and of tucking the kingdom into a corner and leaving the terrestrial ball to roll on in insignificance at the bottom. Yet each county when close ly studied is a little world by itself. Physical features, historical associa tions and traditions of architecture Impart individuality to it and differ entiate it from adjacent shires. Trav eled Americans after tramping up and down the Continent and making the circuit of the globe would not lack occupation if they were to take a house in an English county and to spend six months in exploring it. It might be more enjoyable than globe trotting, and certainly it would be less fatiguing. What can the casual tour ist know about so characteristic a county as Northampton, with its com manding position in the Midlands and its prominence win English history? He may halt in his motor circuit of the cathedral towns to glance at that marvel of Gothic architecture, the decorative west screen of Peterbor ough; or if he is a conscientious American pilgrim, he will find the homes of the Washingtons at Sul grave and Brington and of the Frank lins at Ecton; but probably he will go north with a rush by one of the trunk lines, or return to Liverpool for his ship without giving a thought to the historic shire stretching across the kingdom from Warwickshire to the fens of Lincoln and Cambridge. Yet there is not a county south of the Tweed that deserves more deliberate study. This village of Brixworth, from which I am dating a holiday letter, interests sportsmen because the fa mous Pytchley hounds are kennelled in it, and they are well worth seeing when out with their keepers for an airing on the hills, and still more in the autumn when in full cry for cub hunting, for Northampton is one of the best of hunting shires, with win ter sport w r ell organized and heartily supported by the great land owners. The village concerns antiquarians and students of architecture even more closely, for the strange churca on :he hil rivals in antiquity the one in Dov er attached to the Roman pharos, and while it has undergone successive al terations, it is without doubt one of the oldest structures in the kingdom. There is Roman material in the walls and piers, even if a basilica has not been converted into a church, and the square tower with a semi-circular shaft on the outer face half way to the spire was loopholed by the Saxons for defence by archers against Danish invaders. Characteristic traces of every style of construction, from Rom an or later Saxon to Norman. Tran sition, Gothic and Tudor, can be found in this venerable structure, and nearly as much can be said of the church at Earl’s Barton, near by, with the most beautiful Saxon tower in England—a convincing proof that the primitive architecture which the Nor mans found in the conquered country was not without decorative quality. At Brigstock there is another composite church with a round projection added to the tower as at Brixworth. and with suggestions of Roman methods in the interior arch .and its crude decoration and in the long and short work and horizontal and vertical strips of the walls. Barnack tower is as distinc tively Saxon as Castor is Norman. Both primitive Romanesque and the Norman type following it can be stud ied in the parish churches of unpre tentious villages. The square, em battled tower, the landmark of pic tuesque England, is the s:oried memo rial of the rise or decline of genius for construction and decoration. Sometimes the story of the ancient church is told with dramatic realism by the verger. At Rothwell he be gins languidly, uncovering the brass es and pointing out the features ct the jumble of styles, but when the en trance to the crypt under the south a’sle Is approached he is transformed into a weird and grotesque grave-dig ger of Shakespearian quality. Light ing a candle for each follower, lu leads the way into a subterranean chamber where thousands of skulls and skeleton arms and legs are stacked up shoulder high with the precision and regularity of cordwood in a timber yard or linens on a drap er’s counters. No doubt “custom hath made it of him a property of easi ness,” for he gossips as cheerfully of the occupants of this bone crypt as the grave diggers in “Hamlet” over Adam’s profession or Yorick’s antics. He picks up a skull as carelessly as a cricket ball, and having proved that there is no bullet hole and that there is evidence of a smashing blow 1 with a club, tosses it lightly away as the relic of an ancient Briton age before Danish raiding or Naseby fight. Bran dishing an obnormally huge thigh bone, he argues solemnly that there must have been giants in those days, and after playing idly with a string o£ vertebrae and clinking shoulder blades and skulls with his candlestick, he warns his auditors against cudgel ling their brains needlessly and sup plies them with a plausible theory that the monks in enlarging the an cient shrine ran against a prehistoric burial ground and decently reinterred the bones of between 30,000 and 40,- 000 warriors in a consecrated crypt. It is “crowner’s quest law,” delivered in sepulchral tones without snatch of melody or stoop of liquor, but as a bit of cold realism it is as startling as the gravediggers’ saturnine humor beside Ophelia’s grave, and the visitors with their tallow dips follow him out of the charnel house —one of thz'ee in the kingdom— -with a feeling that they will never hare a stranger experience in England. Past and present jostle each otfcer at every turn as the explorer saunters or rides through Northampton. The old Roman road points straight as an arrow for Kilsby, through which hun dreds of trains are trundling daily. From Barrow Hill, where thousands of Roman soldiers were encamped, a brisk walker tramps through bustling, workaday Daventry, and cutting across country with the help of a compass finds himself out of the world and in a delightful sleepy hol low at Dodford, where brooks are singing in front of cottages to the ac companiment of a splashing mill wheel and the village church is em bowered in gylvan beauty. At Ged dington is Queen Eleanor’s Cross in the centre of a deserted village, at Drayton and Lilford are enlarged and glorified manor houses with fifteenth or seventeenth century gables and windows: a few heaps of stone and the furrows of the moat mark the scene of Mary Stuart’s trial and death, and at Naseby, where Cavalier and Roundhead held their fateful tourna ment, the high rolling heath, covered with gorse and bramble, has been con verted into a sheep walk. The monks’ preaching cross at Brington is the background for a swarm of American tourists, posed by an amateur photog rapher; and over against Althorp, w'here Lord Spencer has twice nar rowly escaped the responsibilities of the Premiership, stands the crumb ling gateway of Holdenby house, where diaries I. was a prisoner in his own house after Naseby; and where once was a court with intrigu ing retainers and psalm singing guards there Is now a score of agri cultural laborers on Lord Annaly’s es tate, with the firs in the rector’s spin ney whispering of the glories and the tragedies of the past. At Wellingbor ough, where old time royalties once took the cure, the medicinal water now goes into a pungent ale; and at Barnwell the walls of a Norman cas tle, with round towers at the corners, enclose a quadrangle of smooth turf with a line of netting across it. It is an ideal tennis court, with ancient masonry as a backstop for careless service and with dungeons In the bas tions as hiding places for balls and rackets. Architectural styles of every period, traditions of all the monastic orders and famous reigns, and sumptuous country houses, like Castle Ashby, with stately avenues of elms or clumps of old oaks, can be sampled in the explorer's walks or rides. Every where, as he goes over the high pla teau windswept as te Cotswold hills or the Wiltshire downs, he finds quaint memorials of the past and strange adaptations of new life to old conditions. Everywhere will be broad sweeps of billowy meadow rolling in a green sea om verdure toward the blue mists of the horizon. In the creases of the hills, and sometimes, as at Cold Ashby, high among them will be straggling villages, with stone faced cottages behind high hedgerows; and here and there will be a mediae val manor house with mullioned win dows and game preserves alive with rabbits and birds. These are the tranquil vistas of rural England, with artistic grouping of trees in the meadows, and with that perfection of landscape gardening in the planning and upkeep of great estates which makes it a finished country. Very beautiful they are, especially when there is a reddish glow at noonday, and the woodlands are rustling with the breath of early autumn. worth (England) correspondence of the New York Tribune. CHILD LABOR. The Physical Harm to Which Young Workers arc liable. Laymen usually underestimate the physiological importance of the play hours of children between the ages of 10 and 1G years. Work during this pe riod of life in factory and workshop has the effect of causing excessive fa tigue in certain -groups of muscles. This fatigue results in muscular de generation, and the assumption of cer tain faulty attitudes which are at first habitual, but later assume the place of the normal, leaving the child more or less permanently deformed and to | some extent, incapacitated. These deformities are to be regard ed on the one hand, however, not simply as disfiguring, but as interfer ing with wage-earning capacity later on, or as menaces to health and the normal tenure of life on the other hand. The work of boys is for the most part done in the standing position. This work usually constitutes an ap prenticeship for work to be done in the same position as journeymen adults. Avery frequent result of such 1 premature and excessive toil in boys is the breaking down of the feet, which results in what is popularly known as “flat-footed.” Under these circumstances it is seen quite fre quently in its severest forms, and thus often results in permanently forbid ding the continuance of the trade learned as a boy. The girl, on the other hand, does her work in the factory in a sitting position as a rule. The effect now is frequently the development of what is known as “rotary lateral curvature of the spine.” This results in disabling the expansive power of the chest, crowds the heart and lungs abnormal ly, and even affects the capacity and shape of the pelvis. For this reason it is well known that severe cases of lateral curvature result in bringing the tenure of life far below the aver age by its effect upon the heart and lungs. The deformity of the pevis has long been known as being produc tive of serious harm in the maternal function. While these deformities do not oc cur in the greater number of toiling children, they are known to be par ticularly frequent among them. And the baneful effects of these deformi ties are greatly intensified by unfort unate home environment and Improp er nourishment.—Woman’s Home Companion.

How Foundation# of Great Steel Structure# Are Built. v The foundations for the great steel structures are built by means of cais sons in which the men can work un der a great pressure of air. It Is a ▼ery interesting sight to watch them, and the best of It Is that any one may see them at close range from an adjoining sidewalk. The caisson is a hollow steel cylinder open at the bottom and just large enough to per mit a man to work. The workman climbs down a ladder in this tube and digs away the earth at the bottom. As the earth is taken away the steel tube is gradually lowered. The earth is taken out by a bucket, which is lowered and raised by a tall derrick at one side. As the caisson sinks, air is pumped into the compartment containing the man. This is to force back any water or dirt that might fill the hole from the outside as fast as the workman removes it from within. The pressure of this air is often so great that a man can work but an hour or so at a time. At the top of the caisson is a steel cylinder with an air tight door at either end ■which serves as a kind of vestibule to the tube below. When one of the caisson w-orkers starts to go to work he opens the door or lid at the top and climbs in, w'hen the opening is once more tight ly closed. This door or lid is air tight. After the opening to the out er air has been closed the workman opens the door at the bottom of this steel compartment and lets in com pressed air from the caisson below. It takes a few minutes to become ac customed to breathing this atmos phere, for the heavy air makes the head ring. As soon as the workman can do so he climbs down into the funnel below, closing the lower door of the steel ante-room as he floes so. All this must be done in the dark. If the workman wishes to signal the outer world he may do so by striking the steel side of bis narrow prison with his shovel. He usually signals In this way when the bucket is to be raised or lowered. —From Frances Arnold Collins’s “The Building of a ‘Sky-scraper’ in St. Nicholas.

It might be possible to build sky scrapers of stone or brick to the same height as the steel structures, but such building would be no safer. They would be vastly more expensive and would take very much longer to put up. Then again, the lower walls of a stone structure would have to be so very thick that there would be but little room left on the lower floors or space for windows. The only ques tion which remains Is how long these buildings of steel will stand. The walls do not matter, for even If they should crack or fall away, they could readily be replaced, for It is the steel frame that carries the weight of the floors and their contents. And it chances that even this question has been answered, frightful cost, by the skyscrapers which survived the great fire in Baltimore and the earth quake at San Francisco. —From Fran ces Arnold Collins’s “The Building of a ‘Sky-scraper’ ” in St. Nicholas.
