Designed to Make a Dam. The concrete column erected in Victoria Park, Canadian side, at Niagara, designed to make a dam in its prostrate form, was successfully tipped over into the river from the trestle on which it stood on the afternoon of Thursday, November 1-9, in the presence of between one and -two thousand spectators. The trestle on which the column -stood was, 20 feet high above the ground level. The column was 50 feet high and 7 feet 4 inches square. Every 8 feet of its height a wooden wedge 12 inches thick at the outside and tapering to 6 inches at the center of the column was inserted for the purpose of breaking the column into sections when it fell, while a chain ran through the center of the column to hold the sections togeth er when the column broke. It required about an hour and a half to tip the column. Three jacks were operated under the tim bers at the base of the trestle. For the first few inches of ele vation of the timbers, hardly any slant was visible in the culumn, but soon the great shaft was seen to incline toward the river, and it it was felt that it " would fall very soon, but almost unexpectedly it toppled over into the river with great rapidity, making a mighty splash. The ends of the column disappeared under the water, but at the center the broken blocks or sections were derated, but may settle down later.. The trestle was intended to fall with the column for the purpose of throwing the in ner end of the column about 15 feet out from the shore in order that an ice run might be left, be tween the shore and the end of the column. 'This worked successful ly. After the column was in the river the water in the intake was increased 10 1-2 inches in depth, which it is believed will give suf licient depth to afford a full sup ply to the pumping station of the city of Niagara Falls, Ont., and the Niagara Falls Park and River Rail way for power purposes, as;the in take is used jointly. Supt. .James Wilson, of Victoria Park, states that the results obtained are satis factory, and he reports Engineer Ishain Randolph, who planned the tower-dam, as being, well pleased Orrin E. Dunlap in Scientific American. An ingenious system of resoling a boot when the existing sole is worn out has been devised by a London inventor. In this boot the outer sole is attached to the inner sole by means of brass screws inserted in a series of eyelet holes round the welt. When it is re quired to attach a new sole the worn sole is simply unscrewed and the new one substitute. In the case of the heel the screws are driven into holes in the under surface of the heel so that not only do the screws fulfil the function of attaching the new heel, but consti tute efficient protectors as well The attachable soles and heels are standardized in various sizes and can be placed on the market ready for instant attachment. The process of soling and heeling a boot can be accomplished in five minutes. The idea is especially applicable to soldiers' boots where the foot covering is subjected to constant and heavy wear. The main advan tage of the device is that no time is lost during the repair of the boot. The American military department has ordered samples of the new boot and proposes to sub ject them to severe trial by men on active service Scientific Amer- i ican. TYPE A GIRL LIKES BEST By Beatrice Fairfax. What kind of a man does a girl like best? - It's rather a perplexing question for the simple reason that she is apt to use her woman's privilege and change her mind. She may admire the athlete on Monday, and Friday will find her worshipping at the feet of the poet. However, as a rule she has an ideal type, to which she usually returns, and when she dreams of the mythical husband of the future she invests him with the qualities of her ideal. Undoubtedly every woman has an ideal, a type of man that she admires above other men. She seldom marries her ideal, but that is owing to the fact that love is no respecter of ideals. There are so many types of men that it would be imposssible to itemize them. The following list will do for our purpose, I fancy: ' The wit, the athlete, the poet, the hanhsome man, the masterful man, and the everyday mn. When you are eighteen your ideal possesses most of those qual ities, but as you grow older you find that a man can be vary satisfactory and yet not quite a demi-god. Extreme meets, they say, and-m no place is the saying more truly enfied than in love The gentle mouse of a woman tays along at the neeis or vine victorious athlete. The nrosaic matter-of-fact wo man with a heart full of love and non-comprehension mends the poet's socks. The woman frith no sense., of umor marries the wit, and so it goes. Plays and novels- show pretty fairly the types of men that com mand most love from women. ' All types, of course, have their following, but there must be one type which, out classes the others. Which is it? E:ery woman knows in her heart the kind of man she likes best. If her hero were. made to order 1 1 1 " J ' A ' what woum oe nis aominauiiK quality? "Fess up," girls, and tell us what quality you most admire. Does the wit appeal to you, or does your heart thrill at the ath lete's prowess? There is a touch of romance about a poet that is very alluring. is there not: We all know how many hearts G ?throT for the handsome man, and none of us will acknowledge how many ache for the masterful marr. The everyday man comes' last of all, but don't for one moment think he is to be despised. "Which' do you like best? Yorf nave -a " good-' ; list from which to select. . t The question awaits your discus sion.

It carries a single line of railway over the river Seoule by three lattice girder spans, the central one being 472 feet '6 inches and each of the two side ones 377 feet 5 inches long. The two river piers of granite masonry are each 303 feet high, and tapered from 76 1-2 feet x 43 2-3 feet at the bottom to 69 x 18 3-4 feet at the abutment level. Scientific American.
