A Yaluablo ml Interedtlnj: Inatrument Id the Weatber llurrau lleadqaartera at WiMhlactun-The Only One In tbo Country How It Operates. Resting upon a tenure stone 11111117 imbedded in the floor Leueuth the south went corner cf the main building of the weather burcnn'K headquarters at Wash ington is a Fcisuiograph, the only in strument in the United States by which the timo and duration of earthquakes can bo recorded. This machine may bo described thus: A heavy lead weight is pivoted to a short steel link by means of a screw, the sharp point of which is just abovo the center of gravity of the weight, so that the latter will halauco and remain stable on the pointed support. The top of the link hangs from a small projec tion from the frame of the instrument, being held in place by a second sharp pointed screw. A slender, flexible needle about six inches long extends straight upward front the topmost edgo of the link, and its platinum tipped point nor mally passes exactly through the center of a platinum rimmed holo iu an in sulated metallic plato which is held stationary with tho frame of the instru ment. One polo of an electric circuit con nects with the needle at the pivot, and the opposite pole is fastened to the TECHNICAL EDUCATION. An Ilae 1 I Amerhau Mrliluit Thinks It llrru Overdone Iu Germany. We hear very much in America about German technical education, and what a great thing it lias been for their re cent industrial development. One is not iu llt rliu long before he comes into contact with this feature of Germany's industrial organization, and so far at least as mechanical engineering goes, and especially so far as it has to do with the designing of machinery and the management of workshops, one gets the impression that technical education is somewhat overdone that too much dependence is placed upon it and too little importance is attached to practical shop experience by thoso who direct in dustrial operations. There are a great plenty of men in tho German shops who can mako very profound mathematical calculations and can present the most beautiful analyses of mechanical problems; who aro tilled with the knowledge of Grashoff and of Keuleaux, and because of this are in trusted with responsibility in positions where an American shopman, knowing little or nothing of them, but trained to rely largely upon his own individual and inherited skill and store of experi ence, would make much the better showing. Of course I do not mean by this that technical education is detri mental, nor in fact anything more than that hero it seems iu many cases to Lo carried too far. Many men aro met with in the shops who know a lot that is to be found in books, but nothing whatever of skilled workshop manipulations, and they seem to have been deprived of tho power of acquiring tho habit of independent thought. There aro exceptions, of course, and I do not mean to imply either that technical education, generally speaking, has been detrimental here, but it is the opinion of those whose experience and observations qualify them to judge of the matter that thero has been too littlo of tho practical element iu it and that it has not, so far as it relates to the art of machine construction, been so bene ficial as might be supposed, Berlin Let ter in American Machinist. SEISMOGUAP1I P.ECOKDEIU metallic plate. A seismic shock causes the needle tip to strike tho platinum rim of the abovo mentioned hole, thus completing tho circuit and being trans mitted to tho recording instrument in another building. This register is a revolving cylinder which moves by clockwork and makes one revolution every six hours. A broad baud of paper cross ruled with heavy hour lines, between which the space is subdivided by finer fivo minute lines, passes around tho cylinder. Pressing against the moving paper ribbon is a small arm, tipped with a fountain pen, which is so controlled by the clock as to make a spiral line upon tho record ing sheet for seven days without changing. The clock, which keeps standard time, is connected with tho arm in such a manner that tho pen is made to move every hour, thus making points in the otherwiso even lino. An electro magnet on tho base of tho regis ter, which is connected with the pen arm, is connected electrically with the seismograph. When, therefore, tho cir cuit is closed by tho needle being jarred from its noimal position so as to touch the platinum rim, the vibration is in dicated by offsets iu the spiral line bo tween thoso regularly made. The time of such disturbance is as certained by counting the hours sinco the revolution began, as indicated by tho points regularly made, then the fivo minute lines exceeding the last hour point, and then applying a delicately graduated scale for the seconds and fractions thereof. Finally auy error iu the clock which drives the cylinder is determined by comparison with a pen dulum clock which is regulated by tele graphic signals from the naval observa tory. The duration is indicated by tho number of successive lateral strokes mado in the tracing by tho fountain pen. This seismograph was invented by Professor C. F. Marvin and has regis tered six earthquakes duriug its four years' service, that of May 31 being most pronounced. It is so situated that only a tremor of tho earth itself can affect it, but although its utility for re cording tho time and duration of seis mic shocks has been fully demonstrated it does not indicate their direction, be ing in that respect inferior to many in struments now in use in Japan. Scientists are anxious to have accurate seismographs placed in all tho observa tories throughout tho country, believing that with a network of such apparatus, carefully installed, such phenomena could bo observed upon a broader scale than ever before within the world's his tory. Scientific American. Street Ire Cream Kxamlned. An investigation into tho naturo and quality of the creams vended on tho streets of London has been made by tho British Institute of Preventive Medi cine, with somo strango results.

The microscope shows the presence of various insects' legs, straw, hair, coal dust, woolen and linen fiber, tobacco, muscular tissue. Still worse, a bacteriological study reveals iu tho street barrow cream a maximum num ber of 7,000,01)0 microbes per cubic centimetre, while tho shops havo only 1,000,000 thus reckoned.

Tho majority eat tho venom, but in Mozambique tho samo result is gained by inoculating with it. That these peoples really do mako themselves proof against snake bites in this way seems to be sure be yond a doubt. Although this method was made known long ago in Europo by travelers, nobody seemed to take any notice of it until the experiments of Pasteur and his school had demonstrated tho possibility of utilizing it.

A Delicate Contrivance Which Makes the Spider Iothe Work An Extremely Fine Fabric Produced M. Cachot Said to Have Received SI 0,000 for the Invention. A scientific discovery of great interest to the world is that silk of an excep tionally flue quality can bo mado from the web of an ordinary spider. For years science has looked with longing eyes at tho flue silky web that seemed to havo no other uso in the domestic economy than to enmesh auy uufortuuato fly that happened to come within trapping dis tance of the spider's lurking placo. It Was known that tho web hael a silky texture and might servo somo useful purpose in manufacturing industries, but how, first of all, to get tho spider to give it up in sufficient quantities to make it worth while and how, second ly, to wind so fino a thread without breaking or hojelessly entangling it were tho problems that scientists de paired of ever being able to solve. There was a strong iucentive for somo one to solve it, however, for the manufacturers of Great Britain had olubbed together to offer a standing re ward of $10,000 to tho man who could invent some way of turning a spider's web to profitable manufacturing ac count. In spite of the reward and the prospective fortune froni tho solution of the puzzle no one could make anything of it until a Frenchman named M. Ca chot, who had for many years been studying tho question, hit upon a way by means of which both difficulties could bo overcomes Now, spiders' web silk is an assured fact, aud the industry will probably be a thriving one iu the near future, provided tho spiders do not take to the woods uuder this new form of brigandage. M. Cachot discovered that the only thing necessary to make the spider as sist in tho robbery of its own web was to get the thread properly started in the right direction. The spider will always good naturedly unwind himself as long as tho pulling power that draws the web from him keeps up the strain. M. Cachot designed a machine containing KOltlilNU THE SPIDER. the diminutive bobbins, kept constantly revolving by a delicato ruuniug gear. By means of this machine he solved the great problem of how to wind tho thread. All former efforts to wind the web had been made after tho spider had span it, iu tho way they had wound the silk of tho silkworm. But, tho spider's web being much finer than that of the silkworm, every attempt to wind it had resulted only in a hopeless tangle, the breaking of the thread and finally in ex hausting tho patience of the experi menter. M. Cachot proposetl to let the spider do the wiudiug. Ho caught the e nd of the wob while it was still attached to tho body of the spider and fastened it firmly to the bob bin. Then the machine was gently put iu motion. The spider, finding his web reeling away from him, apparently of its own volition, naturally pulled in the opposite direction to get away. This was tho crucial point of thoexperimcut If the spider pulled with sufficient force to break the thread, the experiment would, of course, bj a failure. To M. Oachot's great delight, ho found that the spider seemed to enjoy the process, and did not pull harder than was ueces sary to keep tho web moving. The tiny thread continued to wind off on tho bob bin uutil the spider had been completely deprived of its web. Then another spi der and still another were treated in tho same way, uutil enough thread had been wound off to fill tho bobbin, when a new one was put on the machine and the process repeated. When a sufficient quantity of tho web had been collected to make a thorough test of its fitness for manufacturing purposes, tho thread was woven into fabric. It was found to be tho finest quality of silk, aud experts to whom it was submitted declared it to possess a particularly high market value. M. Cachot claimed and received tho reward from the British manufacturers and has exhibited the new fabrio in many of the largo manufacturing cities of England and the continent, where it has excited the liveliest interest. M. Cachot has arranged to begin the manufacture of spiders' web silk on a largo scalo and has taken a factory in Paris for thy purpose. New York Her ald. Nicotine Experiments. An Euglish scientist has made somo interesting experiments as to the effect of nicotine upon tho lungs aud heart.

A man who takes plenty of exercise in tho open air may smoke with impunity, while he who sits much at a desk must bewaro of tho fatal fascinations of "My Lady Nicotino. " American Lathes.
