CHOICE MISCELLANY Photography In Fog. of photography In a fog Bounds like a cutting from a comic paper father than a serious scientific fact, but It Is a scientific fact none the less, says the New York Journal, and the man who Is conducting investiga tions In this peculiar line of photogra phy Is the shrewd, energetic ruler of the German empire. Quite recently the kaiser has been steaming about In the Baltic on his yacht, ostensibly on pleasure bent, but la reality with a far different object. He was accompanied by two men •whose skill with the camera nnd ,whose knowledge of its construction are unequaled, and the result of that Httle trip will be the beginning of im portant developments in connection .with the navy and merchant service of Oermnnr, if not of other countries. By means of a specially constructed camera the kaiser's friends succeeded In obtaining clear and distinct photo graphs of vessels and of the coast line when those objects were a mile off and both the photographer and the photographed were enveloped in a thick fog. This wonderful result was obtained with un exposure of two sec onds only. The necessary complement to the camera is an apparatus that will en able the operator to develop his pic ture In a few seconds so that it can be thrown on a screen. The perfection of this apparatus is now engaging the attention of the two scientific men, the expenses being paid by the Her man government. vessels in a fog could take etrens In preventing collisions. aJoctom' "Cat Njips," The "cat naps" indulged in by the late Dr. William Pepper constituted a standing joke among his intimate friends. He had the faculty of g- ;ng to sleep at will and waking up when he willed. He would sometimes when un der a mental strain keep a roomful of patients waiting while he slept soundly In his private office for three minutes or five minutes, or as long as he wish ed. Then he would resume his duties, greatly refreshed. Another prominent physician has a queer habit of napping, although lie only takes one a day anil that directly after luncheon, which with him is a hearty meal. He repairs to his office and throws himself in a chair at a poi iit where the polished wood lloor is not covered by the rug. He holds a bunch of keys between the forefinger and thumb of his right, hand, which is allowed to hang loosely over the arm of the chair. Then he dozes off, but it is never more than a doze, for the mo ment his fingers relax the keys drop to the bare floor, acting as an alarm clock. It ia scarcely a nap -just a brief re laxation of the mental and bodily faculties. The doctor calls it his siesta, and if he misses it lie says he doesn't feel quite himself for the rest of the day.—Philadelphia Record. Driveway of Twenty Miles. Even New \orkers have, as a gen eral thing, little idea of the change that Is coining over New York In re spect to Its external appearance. The Improvement that has been wrought by the great system of beautifully pav ed streets and the cutting through of parkways and driveways Is unknown to most, of our people. I wonder how many there are who know that, with the finishing of the viaduct across Manhattan valley at Riverside drive, we have practically completed a 2C mile driveway. As soon as the new avenue that is to connect this viaduct with the French boulevard to the north of One Hundred and Twenty-fifth street has been finished there will be a continuous stretch of roadway from Seventy-second street and Central park Xo Oue Hundred and Tenth street, to Riverside drive, to the viaduct, to the French boulevard, to itykeman street, to the speedway, to St. Nicholas ave nue and back to the park.

"Do you know that the average Amer ican is a hopeless and incorrigible and unmitigated liar?" said an amateur cynic of Baronne street.

I»id you ever see a pocket counting ma chine? Well, it's a little device shaped like a watch.

I chanced to have one of the little counting ma chines I have just mentioned, so 1 slip ped it into my pocket and started out. "The first lie I told was right at the door.

I am glad to say, however, that during the past 10 years there has been a steady diminution of the number of vessels which 'mys teriously disappear.' That is due, be yond all question, to the increased stringency of boiler inspection and the greater strictness of examinations be fore a license is issued to engineers. Nevertheless there is still considerable room for improvement in both branches."—New Orleans Times-Demo crat. SEVEN DEVELOPED GOLD MINES. ♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦*♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦ 60 ACRES OF GOLD ORE.
