From the abaft to the paddle wheels motion Is transmitted by bevel gears sctlng uion the pro peller shaft. The direction of the craft Is controlled by means of a stationary rudder formed by two bladea set r.t right anglca. so that It ran be steered even If by any chance the craft should turn on Its side while In the water. Well aft In tbo body of the craft la a large drum or reel, on which Is wound a long cable, one end of which passes out through the top of the ear and la mado fast to the ship. Aa the car trav els through tho water the line pays out, and ro the car Is In constant com munication with the ship.

They may be and often nre manipulated In a most marvelous manner, so aa tn llrely to deceive the uulnltl.Ucd. Of :oure these remarks do not refer to ladles' figures, but to the common numeral ot arithmetic. Strange hicks tuny be played with them; tricks aa amusing and perplexing as with those time-honored confederates of conjurors a pack of playing cards. In most ot these the figure 9 Is the Important fac tor. There are some peculiarities about that little bullet-headed gentleman which are rc.lly startling. He has a phocnlx-Uke power of raising blmsrlf tiuiii iii ashes. Smother him up as you will, multiply him by any group ot his fellow figure until hi Identity Is completely lost, and he will bob up again, If not In shape, at least In spir it and substance, as the sum ot the re sult obtained by the procesa of multi plication. Thus Twice 9 Is 18. Add ono and eight together and you get 9. 80, for example, 17 nines are 153, which, add ed together make nine, or US nines makes 1.212, and thus tho same self sssertlve little chap pops up again In different form. A seeming exception Is when applied to 11. or to a multiple of eleven; then the little Joker comes In pairs, ns 22 nines give 198, or seventy-seven ulnes make 603. But even then the exception Is only apparent, for adding 1 and 9 and 8 gives H, and !l and 8 gives 9; 6 and 3 and 0 make 9. Trrhaps a more puxxllng trick pro vided by the eccentricities of the fig ure 9 I the following: 1a1 your sub ject put down any odd number ot fig ures, three, five, seven, or even more; then add them together and subtract the result. Now he may cross out any one figure and tell the trickster the others. It Is easy, by mentally add ing them, to discover the value of th figure crossed out, as this Is the ono needed to make up the result to the nearest multiple of 9. Thus: nr.-iu S.l.seu-u 7,c.'.'3,f.s-jj 1' cr It or 35 ax,3:-l .x.i,s,.,s-.'7 : s 2 Tcrhnps the nonlcst trl.k with ftg ores I that by which one can discover thu day aud month any ouo waa bor.i. snd also his or her age. It U not a popular performance with ladles. It Is done as follows: The subj-ct inuat first put down, concurrently, maklrg one group of figures, the day of the month and the number of inch month, reckonlnr January as 1 and Deeeml). r s 11, This, nf course, the perforn.cr does not see, but he asks the subject to double thl number; then to add 5 1 1 It. The result he must multiply by fifty next add hi a?e, then ubtra. t fifty next add hi aye, then sti'itrv-t S6j. and tell you the grand total. By mentally adding 113 .0 this. In eviy Instance the flit 11 ri plainly show, r.it the day, second the nio:iih, aud dually the age of the subject. Thus, for In tur.ee.
