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.

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. This beau
tiful drive, nearly 2U miles long, la
lined for almost its entire length with
•handsome dwellings, and the pave
ment is the most perfect in the world.—

I»id you ever see a pocket counting ma

like a watch. Whenever you press the
stem the needle on the dial jumps a

body making long counts and are very
handy, because they never forget where
they leave off.

A Cane Lincoln Would Xot Take.
All clients knew that, with "Old
Abe" as their lawyer, they would win
their case—if it was fair; If not, that it
was a waste of time to take it to him.
After listening some time one day to a
would be client's statement, with his
eyes on the celling, he swung suddenly
round in his chair and exclaimed:
"Well, you have a pretty good case
In technical law, but a pretty bad one
In equity and justice. You'll have to
get some other fellow to wlu this case
for you. I couldn't do it. Ail the time,
while standing talking to that Jury, I'd
be thinking, 'Lincoln, you're a liar,' and

continued use of legal verbiage and thi
absurd lengths to which members o:
the profession sometimes go In takinj

"A rank outsider," announced thi
member of the profession who ha<
been a good listener, "a client of mine
supplied the best instance of literal In

knowledge. He was executor under i

"The old lady proved herself In th<
flesh, drew her money and went to Cal
lfornla, where she spent two yean
without putting In her claim. On hei
return she went in person and demand
ed the double allowance due her.
"The conscientious executor got ou
the will, studied it, scratched his heac
and finally handed down his opinion:
" 'Madam, you are alive now. Then
can be no reasonable question as t<
that, for I have the conclusive evidenc*
of my own eyes. But 1 am possessed
of no legal proof that you were alive £
year ago. 1 am, as you know, withii

"I'.oilcr exclusions are tin- terror of
tin* seafaring 111:111," said ail old time* |
dei'ii water captain. "Such a tiling is!
I>u< 1 enough on dry land. Out imagine a
catastrophe of that kind at sea. In '
ninety-nine eases out of a hundred it j
means the absolute wiping out of the)
craft itself and every soul on hoard.
"The average landsman would be
greatly shocked in looking over the
maritime records to see how many ves- j
sets disappear ea< h year and leave
absolutely no clew to their fate. They
run well up to the hundred mark, and
such a mystery is not to be explained
away by storms. A Chinese typhoon j
may swoop down like lightning out of
a clear sky and tear a ship to pieces,
but some floating wreckage is sure to
tell the tale. A boiler explosion, on the
contrary, will blow a hole as big a - a
railroad tunnel right through the cent* r
of the hull, and the stricken vessel
simply goes down like a shot. There
is no time to unfasten a boat from the.
davits or cut loose a spar.
"In the opinion of seamen, that is j
the story of at least 00 per cent of the
ships that leave port and are never |
heard of again. Luckily the modern
system of marine boiler inspection ■
is extremely strict and thorough, but it j
is impossible to absolutely prevent j
carelessness and fraud, and often :
enough, no doubt, the fault lies with
the engineer.
"There is an old story of a drunken
Scotchman who mistook the ther
mometer for the steam gage and 'cuss
ed out' the stokers because he couldn't
get the pressure above 80. That yarn
will hardly hold water, but I've seen
cases almost as bad. 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
