REVEALS HEIGHT OF CLOUDS
Apparatus of Immsnss Hslp to Avia tors That Are Compelled to Fly at Night In Europe, where aviation is fur ther developed in a commercial way than in this country, there is con siderable night flying and to the avia tor at night it is important to know the height of the clouds in his vicin ity. A plan has been devised to as certain this and it is proposed to in stall the instrument at each of the important wireless stations ahng established flying routes so that the airman may be informed of the cloud conditions as he passes these stations. The apparatus consists primerily of u theodolite and a searchlight sta tioned at some distance apart, the distance being accurately ascertained by measurement. The telescope of the theodolite is fitted with an indi cator which instantly reveals the angle at which it is directed und with this information coupled with that of the distance between the theodolite and the searchlight, the beam of which is directed at the cloud, it is a simple matter to arrive at the height of the latter. Thera arc several night expresses making regular trips in different parts of Europe. SOON TO BE EXTINCT RACE Aboriginal Inhabitant* of th* West In die* Suceumb Before the March of "Civilization.'* The Caribe, the aborigiual inhab itants of the West Indies, once ex ceedingly numerous, are now virtual ly extinct as an ethnic group. At present there are practically no pure strain Carifts in the islands except in Dominica. This is chiefly due to the treatment which the native pop ulation received at the hands of the Spanish, aud the later persecutions and abuses by the early French. The slave trade began in the islands soon after the coming of Columbus. The chief deities among the na tives were good and bad spirits, aud they also worshiped the sun, moon and stars. The Pee-ay-man, a kind of sorcerer, was the medicine man of the tribe, and he affected his curëï by invoking the good spirit of some bird or animal, meanwhile making diabolical noises and shaking the "shac-shac," a small calabash, emptied of its contents and filled with hard seeds and provided with a handle. The dead were not buried, but inclosed in a hammock and sus pended between two forest trees. ELECTRICITY IN PHILIPPINES In the homes of Tacloban, on the little Philippine island of I.avte, the electrical idea shines brightly every night, for most of these homes are electrically lighted, aud the town, with a population of 12,000, has its electric light and power plant, with three 22Vfe kilowatt generators. The streets are bright at night RETURN TO GASOLINE Early in 1921 one-half of the au tomobiles in Pernambuco, Brazil, were using alcohol as fuel. Today 90 per cent of these cars have re turned to gasoline. The various ob jections recorded against alcohol can be removed, it is said, by using ape cully designed motors aud by other a/j j n la tlrma BLONDIN'S FEAT AMAZED The report that a young English woman, Elizabeth Yelding, will at tempt to cross Niagara river on a tight rope, quite uaturally recalls Charles Blondin, whoso name was a household word 70 years ago. Blon din, or rather Jean Francois Grave let, visited the United States in 1855 and amazed and scared the American public by stretching a tightrope across Niagara river below the falls and then walking across it. No sooner was the news of this daring feat known throughout the country—news traveled very slowly in 1855—than Blondin became the hero of the hour. He liked America and came again, in 1859, and once more in 1860, and people traveled long distances in many varieties of conveyances to see him risk his life.
