Apparatus Invented by a German
Does Work With Almost Same
Accuracy as Photograph.
An apparatus by means of which pic
tures can be enlarged by hand with
almost as much accuracy as a photo
graph can be mechanically enlarged
has been Invented by a German. A
lamp has a series of reflecting mir
rors hinged at the top and a lens set
in a tubing that points downward over

on top of the apparatus and its reflect
ed image, passing through the magni
fying glass, appears on the paper sev
eral times enlarged, but naturally a
perfect replica of the original. An
artist of only small ability can then
trace over the lines and make a fault
less copy of the head. Such an ap
paratus should be of great value to
those who make a specialty of large
crayon portraits done from photo
graphs, a trade seldom plied outside of
rural districts.
Most Remarkable Symptom Is Over
powering Sleepiness, With Slug
gish and Clumsy Movements.
Climbing into the air has developed
three new types of disease: (1) moun
tain sickness, due to the muscular
work of climbing in addition to the
rarefaction of the air; (2) balloon sick
ness. produced only at great heights
by the thinness of the air, and (3)
aviators* sickness, in which more
severe symptoms result from the
rapidity of the change of atmospheric
pressure, especially In descent Ber
get notes that aeroplanes may rise to
10,000 feet In an hour. The humming
or cracking produced In the ears is
the same as in balloon disease, but
there Is also a peculiar uneasiness,
and the aviator is quickly out of
breath. The French aeronaut mentions
further that the descent in a sailing
flight may be at the rate of 1,000 feet
or more a minute, Morane at Havre
having dropped 8,000 feet in six min
utes. The effects are heart beats of
great force but no Increase in rate,
humming in the ears, and an exag
gerated special uneasiness. There is
burning of the face, with severe head
ache. But the most remarkable symp
tom Is the overpowering sleepiness,
with sluggish and clumsy body move
ments, and this may last for days.
FLYING machine looks odd
Resembles Hugv Bird-Kite, With Two
Wings and Long Tall—lnvention
of an Ohio Man.
One of the oddest looking flying ma
chines yet has been devised by an
Ohio man, who evidently belongs to
that class of aerial inventors who
stick to the theory that to fly you
must have wings. This machine, as
the cut shows, resembles a huge bird
kite, with Its two wings and long tall.
The wings are pivoted to the body of
the machine and are driven up and
down by shafts operates by the en

the body. The tall, of course, to to pre
serve a balance. The wings are pro
vided with individual ratable vanes
that open as they go up, thus otter
ing practically no resistance to ths
air, and close as the wings come down,
thus forming the flat surface required
to support ths machine. Ths pair of
sledgelike runners at ths bottom act

Tax on the Eyes and Nervous System
Imposed by High Speed—Also
Numerous Minor Illa
The twentieth century may fairly be
called the age of speed. The trolley
car. rushing through city streets and
country roads, replaces the jogging
herse car and rumbling stage; the
fast steamers take you to England In
five days; the thousand miles be
tween New York and Chicago is cov
ered in 18 hours; and mankind has
almost forgotten the joys of a quiet
saunter. Distances have been short
ened by the bicycle,' the automobile
and the motor boat, and the aeroplane
Is to outspeed them all.
Although much Is gained, perhaps,
the physician knows that something
Is lost, remarks the Youth’s Compan
ion. The uses and benefits of the au
tomobile. for example, are great if it
Is sensibly used; but when It is
abused the danger to those in and out
of the car is even greater. Driving
a high power car at full speed is a
pleasurable form of intoxication, but
like all Intoxications It has Its pen
alties, and they are heavy.
The driver’s eyes and nervous sys
tem may suffer seriously, although
there are numerous/nlnor Ills to which
be Is liable that may come first and
teach him moderation.
The tax on the eyes is enormous,
for they are kept at constant strain
looking for obstacles and Inequalities
in the road. The wind and dust in
spite of goggles often cause a trouble
some inflammation that yields only to
rest in a darkened room and appro
priate medical treatment
A not uncommon affection of the
eyes Is a failure to focus properly, the
ciliary muscles become exhausted and
suddenly cease to act—a temporary
paralysis that causes a sudden blur
ring of the vision. If that comes
while the car is going at full speed
the driver is fortunate if he can stop
it in time. The only course for the
driver who has had this affection is
to give up the wheel, for If It has oc
curred once it may occur again at any
time. \
Another ailment that may affect the
passengers as well as the driver is a
painful stiff neck caused by uncon
scious muscular tension. But the most
serious penalty that follows abuse of
the automobile is neurasthenia or
nervous breakdown. A man whose
brain is fatigued with business cares
cannot with safety substitute another
form of mental strain for the needed
Attachment Designed Particularly for

The piano attachment for musical
