NEW DEMON OF THE DEEP THAT IS CONTROLLED INVISIBLE CURRENTS Paris It's of no use to go spending millions of dollars on battleships if the invention of a French engineer, M. Gustave Babet, fulfills, at its of ficial trials a few weks hence, the promise given at Its unofficial trial. This new engine of destruction is a radio-automatic torpedo, so sensitive to control at so great a distance as to be well nigh human. It can be guid ed by wireless waves at a distance of three and a half and even four miles as completely as if the operator were on board instead of beside a tetle graph instrument well out of harm's way. Like the bee that Is supposed to die when It has used its one and only sting this costly vessel Is expected never to make more than one "busi ness" trip, and that trip is designed to be the most expensive voyage on record. The preliminary trials took place some time ago, but the working mod el used on this occasion is much larg er and considerably improved. 200 Bounds of Explosives. Imagine a little submarine at the bottom of a hull of eleven yards, on top of this a long, thin, cylindrical floater, with two masts, each carry ing lights that wink signals. In the compartment in the fore part of the hull here s 'accommodation for 200 pounds of explosives. The second compartment contains the apparatus controlling the Hertz radio-active waves which are now used In wire less telegraphy .and which will enable the operator to direct the vessel from a hitherto unprecedented distance. The third chamber of the hull en closes the "accumulators." They have nothing to do with moving the tor pedo boat, but regulate the maneu vers aboard. The fourth compart ment contains the petroleum motor. According to M. Oahet. with a motor of 2fi0-horse power, the rate of twen ty knots can be easily attained. At the end of the hull there is the re versible copper propeller, permitting the machine to run either forward or backward. The strange craft was slid down In to the Seine on gently sloping rails and submerged to the upper compart ment On a small motor boat, 100 yards off was the transmitter, with If. Gabet at the key. Ohevs Invisible Current. Under the eyes of an astonished group of army officers, men of sci ence and newspaper men. obeying the invisible current waves transmit ted from the launch, the motor of the torpedo boat went or stopped as desired Under this same mysterious Influence, at the will of the man sit ting In the launch the rudder turned slowly to right or left. All the parts of the deadly machine obeyed his will. "But It does not suffice to direct a torpedo boat." said M. Gabet; "one must know what Is passing Inside. For that reason the lichts undergo eclipses which reveal to the operator placed on the shore the nature of the command received by the torpedo boat. Hi Is thus informed I couple of seconds ahead when such and such a maneuver is going to be made, and thanks to this optical control, he can interfere to correct an error which may have been committed or to an nul a disturbing wave, as for exam ple, from an enemy." So all Is pro vided to direct the torpedo surely and with the utmost accuracy toward its giant adversary, the battleship. "An engine such as this," continued It, Gabet, "can open a breach of eighty square yards in the hull of a battleship" The objection was raised that this new torpedo was a most complicated instrument, and every time the cone landed falsely it destroyed in itself a costly apparatus. "Yes." coldly replied the Inventor, "my engine costs from $2500 to $3, 000. What is that, since it can sink a Dreadnaught costing $8,000,000 with 800 men aboard?" In less than a month the official trials are to be given on the high seas with the torpedo from three to four miles distant from the operator. Cured Hay Fever nnd Summer Cold. A. S. Nusbaum, Batesville, Indiana, writes: "Last year I suffered for three months with a summer cold so distressing that it interfered with my business. I had many of the symp toms of hay fever, and a doctor's prescription did not reach my case, and I took several medecines which seemed only to aggravate it. Fortu nately I insisted upon having Fo ley's Honey and Tar. It quickly cured me. My wife has since used Foley's Honey and Tar with the same success. Koeppen Bros. PORTLAND MAN VICTIM OF WOM N ROBBER, DON'T NEGLECT YOUR EYESIGHT. Eyes carefully ex amined and glass es ground to fit each case. F. A. CLISE. The optical jpeelallst with over iO year practice fitting glasses has open ed permanent offices In the John gchmldt building, Pendleton, Ore. Portland. Edwin Campbell, a cap italist of 1SB Willamette boulevard, who was held up and robbed near his home on the night of August 5, is sat isfied that one of the robbers who waylaid him after ha alighted from a St. John car and annexed a dia mond pin of the value of $6"i0, a g"ld uratch worth $ 1 r0 and $!oi In cash, was a woman, says the Telegram. Campbell called upon Chief Cox yes terday and confided his theory to the head of the police department. The r dibery. which netted the sup posed female footpad and her com panion nearly $!i00 in money and Jew elry, occurred about midnight last Thursday. Campbell, who has offi ces In the commercial block, was on his way home at the time and had ju-t Stepped from a streetcar, when confronted by a masked and armed highwayman. Laboring under the impression that the affair was a prac tical joke engineered by his friends, Campbell at first refused to put his hands up. but quickly changed his mind when the robber threatened to shoot. while tin., footpad covered hlra with a revolver, the second one whom Campbell believes Mu a woman, step ped up from the rear and quickly to.k from him his watch, money and diamond pin. "Although at no time during the holdup did I secure a view of the second footpad, who approached from the rear, yet I think it was a woman. I base this conclusion upon the fact that the robber's hands were excep tionally small to rifle my pockets so quickly, and the touch of the thief, eVi n when taking my watch and dia mond pin. was as light as a woman's. On the morning following the holdup tracks made by a woman's shoe, evi dently a number five, were found leading from the scene of the crime and this strengthens my theory."" Detectives Coleman and Price were detailed on the case by Captain Baty. The load furnished by the victim of the crime as to the possible implica tion of a woman in the robbery has been given to the detectives by Chief Cox. with Instructions to make a thor ough investigation. PORTLAND WILL RAVE AN AIRSHIP LANDING Portland Spalding's new sky scraper to be erected on the quarter block, northwest corner of Third and Washington streets, will be the first In Portland to be equipped with a landing for flying machines, says the Telegram. Z S. Spalding, the owner, has directed the architects, Cass & Gilbert, to provide one of these 20th century utilities, for which he con siders the demand will be urgent within a short time. "Flying machine landings will be constructed on the roofs of the new skyscrapers of New York and Chi cago." said Captain R. S. Greenleaf, of this city, today, "and the modern office building of Portland must be equipped in the same manner." Captain Greenleaf has charge of the construction of the 12-story struc ture, for which plans are now being drawn in New York, and he describes the proposed landing to be a platform covering a large portion of the roof. This platform Is provided with steel Springs, on the" principle of a buffer, to ease the sudden drop of the aero plane or balloon, and thus permit passengers to alight with the least possible Jar. "The average citizen does not realize the rapid changes that are taking place in the world as a result of the perfection of the flying ma chine." Captain Greenleaf says, "and It is hard to believe that the flying machine will be as common as are the automobiles now, and that the public indignation now concentrated on careless chauffeurs will be cen tered on reckless drivers of flying machines, who will drop thhigs on our heads as we pass along the streets and who will throw slops on the roofs of our houses. I look for people to he given the privilege of shooting at the machines with long range rifles before the new order of affairs becomes settled down." ODEGO TO mil BIG FIT CROP FINAL OUTPUT WILL HE MUCH BETTER THAN WAS EXPECTED Small Frtiit.s Have Not Done So Well as Commonly I'm the Staples Will Return Larger Yields Will Be Hut Little LCH Than the Itccoru Yield of Last Year. Intense Collcy Pains Relieved. "For years I have suffered from in tense colicky pains which would come on at times and from which I could find no relief." says I. S. Mason, of Reaver Dam, Ky. "Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera nnd Dirrhoea Remedy was recommended to me by a friend. After taking a few doses of the rem edy I was entirely relieved. That was four years ago and there has been no return of the symptoms since that time." This remedy is for sale by all Good Dealers. Portland, Ore. Oregon's fruit crop this year Is turning out better than was expected. Small fruits on the whole have not done well, but the staple crop apples, pears and peach es promise a yield that will aggre gate only about 100 carloads less than the fine crop of 1908. The apple crop, which a few months ago, it was predicted, would be a j failure, will, from present Indications, j amount to a little over 80 per cent of last year's output, while the qual ity will be as good as It ever was. Ot peaches there will be about 70 per j cent of the production of last year, While nearly twice as many pears will be marketed as In 1908. Prunes are not grown in all parts of the State, ' yet they are one of the most j important products and the crop this year will be almost a third heavier than last year. The best general reports come from southern Oregon. MedfOfd and Cen- J tral Point, which have almost twice ' as many apples and three times as many pears as last year, while Ash land will increase its shipments of ap ples and peaches. The Willamette valley has a light crop of nearly everything except prunes. The Hood River apple crop ll estimated at about half of last year's output. Prospects in eastern Oregon are fair. Freewater and Milton will ship almost as many apples and fully as many peaches as In 1908. La Grande Cove and Union will have half as many 'apples to dispose of as a year ago, 'and report normal crops of pears and peachei. Late frosts cut down the Baker county crop materially, but the , quality of the fruit Is better than 1 usual. . If the weather continues favorable i the output of Italian prunes will be much larger than Inst year. In 1908 20,000,000 jiounds of the dried fruit were disposed of, and the quantity Will be Increased by 20 per cent this year If the weather holds right.
