Channel, a Cambridge shipbuild er, has Invented somtthlng which, if it do all he expects it tv do, ought to revolutionize all transpar;aitlon methods. It ia mot exaotiy a tsttaunboat, oel-.her Is it a locomoulve, and yet it partakea of tine ipropoAtona of each. He eays that it will go equally we!t on nhe land or in the water and that it will have a speed of 100 miles an hour on. the land and It miles an hour ta the waiter. Air. Channel has a imodel in his hop by .which he damonetrotes how ;tlhe speed is going to be attained). The Iboiat is like an ordinary steamboat, except thait It has very large iwheeCs. In a boat 75 feet long thev would be 25 ifeet lm diameter, and' not or.ly this, out are very proad; exitemidlng from close under the tide of the vessel far out into the waiter, and being held in place by an upper deck, which surrounds the wheel. The wheels come down to a level w.'th the keel, and on this are placed a series of ball wheels, on which the ves sel runs while on iaind. The side wheels stick cut so far from the Sides Ohat the vessel cannot tip over sideways. Air. Channel's arguimient Is that there are 75 leet on the circumference of each of these 2tHfoot wheeis. If they can be made to revolve at a speed of 100 rimes a minute and he does .not doubt that they cant why there Is a epeed of 7500 feet a minute, amd) any one can figure out that that Is more than 75 mlks an hour. In order to turn a corner Mr. v-nannoi siays aim ttia't is neceisBary ouw iDe to stop one of the wheels. Air. Channea thinks that with a fleet of such boats the United' States "cou'.d lick the world." .

CITV STREET GRADES Now Is the Time to Mend Yonr Basements. THE GRADES IN LOWER TOWN Not What They Should Be-For New Buildings Need Relocating1 For Future Demands. Astoria, August 19, 1895. To the Bd!ltor: The matiter of street grades should be reviewed and: changed in, Ithe tower part of town. i To build brtaki toultdings, foundation waCa sufFMenlt for a baeiement have to be eoneliructedk But If they are mot car ried higlh. enough above high, tide to keep dry una basement Is lost and a great axhll atonal expense (unnecessary) is added to buiildliinig. Sums persons who now con template building on Gammerctal street are hesitaitlng aboult puittlmg up br.ck. by reason of the expanse of the founda tionthe grade being .too low. All the bricks on tihoti stneelt except the Odd Fellows' building, are flooded with winter high ttdeis. With 'the ajdvenit of mew and mbder bulldlings wlU be needed! room for heat trs, motora and machiinery in the base. menits. If brick buildings are tredted on too low a grade great expense and difficulty will be experienced In la change of the grade hereiaifter. Business will leave the locality where the grade ia wrong and go eJsewhere. Newer places wllll profit by the ex. perlence of the oMer amid build accord ingly. Aliead ysltepls are toeing taken in Scow Bay,, whei-ie theie are mo touiMngs to have higher grades land ampLe basememta, Better lact now wihan Ibult few penmanent building's are up than to wait tin, th. street Is epodled and deserted. Streets and present taprovemenlta need mot ait once be changed ito conform, to new grades, but the grade should be properly established amd then new ('mprovemenits as added wloutd conCorm thereto. A rallnoaicl grade Is about to be esltab. Iished on the front. lit and the city grades tlh'ould agree. The road1 will bj slow to 'make a change after the road bed shall be tmLude. The 'ibase" of city gmdea or zero is about the line of "Mw tide." The .top of the wharves in front of the Occident amd Parkier hbtels Is about 17 feet above the base- of grades. For con. venlenoe of shipping wharves should not be hlghfer than la necessary to avoid overflow. To avoid heavy grade for haul ing to ithe streets In the rear the wharves should not 'be too low. The water and the land carriers meet at the wharves and imust be imUtually accommodated, Probably the ship can. more readily meet extra helgh'b than the wagon. Extreme tldea In the winter pome Ito within three or four feet of the tops of the wharves spoken of. Mr. Wllsan, WISo was the government tidal observer for years in, the city, ol ways asserted that If a southerly gale should ever oame up (alt the tane of ex tremis high tide the wharves would b. submerged. Haw (likely that Is to occur can root be foretold any more than such floods as filled the Columbia river in 1S94. It would seem unsafe them to lower the wharves. Some of the newer ones on the city front, I think, are 18 feet above the base of grade. Perhaps this latlter elevatlton would be suitable for the railroad grade, especially' as the rail road will be on the ground In the west. erh Wart of town. To get 'the basement floors above the tide waiter and back ftoWage of sewers to reduiuce the grade over thte hills, the grade across Ahe flats in rear of the wharf line should! be raised and Increased as much els compatible with leasy haul ing. The flat pants of down should not be spoiled for heavy business by being made wteep. Grades heavy for teaming should be avoided1 In these portions of the city. The itlwo should here be provided Dor. If potssi'ble, baseimcntH and teaming. The grade as now established on Bond street in fromtj of the Occident hotel is 18 feet, or about five feet above high tide, entirely too flow. There shoDd be seven or eighit feet on Ithe Btmeet above tide water. Commercial 1s 19 feet above base of grades along the brWk buildings standing on it. Butt with the exception tpoken of th'e basements there are flooded by winter high tides. Bt Is proposed to esitabilth the grade on this street ear.t of the O. (R. & N. dock at 23 feat. Perhaps thait Is too high, particularly as th distance from that point to the railroad will be ehort, but it Is a move In the right Olreoticm and the grade on Commerclil Street w fit from there to fthe court house should be raised and esliibfish'ed, touit Smprovementi already mode a'Jawed to stand until re placed by new. Bosememts might be cemented to keep out the tl'dl?, but it was found in Portland tast year that the floors would not withstand much upward pressure. Bealdela that the basement floors Bhouid toe above Uhe back flowage of tihe sewers. The matter of grades on the front flhould be taken up Immediately by the people, particularly the "adjacent etreet owners, Bupplemenlted by the oommttite'.B of the council on grades and heal'ih, and consultation b3 had Jointly w'lth the cltv engineers ana enrpneers of i.he railroad, The architecirs also hould be Invited to the conference. This will save much expense and trcu Me In future. 'line ground is almost In a state of rature and .the cost of determining and nxing ran maiJter oday is small. J. Q. A. BOWLfBT. LIKE THUNDERC-LAtA. How a Fly's Trotting Bounds Microphone. in St. Louis Republic. The improvements which W. H. Soulby his lately addid to the mlerophoie, or "sound magnifier," makes it one of the most marvelous meohunicil contrivances of lhe age. The special construction ot this instrument Is of no particular Inter est to anyone except experts, but what is t'oid of its wonderful powers' as a magni fier of sounds will entertain: the young and old, as well as the scientific readers of Notes for th Curious. After the In strument had been completed with the exception- of a few finishing touch:s, Soulby found it absolutely necessary to ke.p the door of his workshop tightly closexj so as to admit no sounds from the outside, otherwise the inarticulate rum blings given off by the "ejector" would have become unb arable. Even with closed doors the cap had to be kept con stantly In place on the receiver to keep the instnimvnt from sending forth a roar which previous investtjratloni had proved to be a combination of sounds produced by watch beats, breathing, the hum of flies, etc. A fly walking across the receiver of the. instrument made a sound equal to a horse crossing a bridge, and when Mr. Soulby laid his arm across the box the blood rushing In hU veins gave forth, a. sound which much resembled that made by the working of a' pump of a large steam en gine. The. playing of a piano, in a house across the street was, when ejected from Soulby'a machine, like the roar of an avalanche, and the washing of dishes in the kitchen of ai house across the alley made a sound which,' the the inven tor of the machine says was "a burd.n to the soul." When any ons entered the room, walked1 about, coughed, touched the table or door handles, th? shriek which Issued from the ejector was most painful to hear. - Hundreds of uses have beea suggested for the interphone, the most practical be ing those of blood circulation, and lung Uets.

Children Cry for Pitcher's Castorla. Scoll's Emulsion Is not a secret remedy! It is simply the purest Norway Cod liver Oil, the finest Hypophos phites, and chemically pure Glyc erine, all combined into a perfect Emulsion so that it will never change or lose its integrity. This is the secret of Scott's Emulsion's great success. It is the happy combination of these most valuable ingredients, materially increasing their po tency; hence the great value of Scott's Emulsion in wasting dis eases. We think people should know what they are taking into their stomachs. . Dvn'l U ptrtvadtd t acctpl a tvbttUuU I Scott Bowm,N,Y, All Drugji.U, 50cnd$t
