KclucnthiR Ihiropo to Appreciate n ( looil Thine. New York Commercial : We have before - fore us documents allowing the olTorts that htivo recently been making by the United States Department of Agricul ture to Introduce moro widely in Europe the use ns human food of the various products of our great staple Indian corner or innizc. Our oxportationsof corn have hitherto been on the smallest scale , not above 4 per cent of our annual product. And. oven this limited Import has not bcon used in Europe as food for man. It is fed to horses , cattle and fowls or else distilled into spirits. Against its use as a human food Ihero has always existed In Europe a strong and inexplicable prejudice. When it is remembered over how wide an area of this country corn in its multifarious forms ranks among the necessaries of .life , and oven in some of Its prepara tions as n real if cheap luxury , it is Imrd to undordtaniT how it happens that oven severe nnd constant want has so fnr failed to drive to its use pcoplo of the same race as ourselves. It will bo remembered that in the days of the terrible potato famine in Ireland more than a generation ago oven starvation failed to popularize among the Irish an article of food which is so highly prized throu.frbout BO broad an area in this country. No doubt ignorance of the proper methods of preparing corn meal for the table lias had much to do with the un popularity of this cdiblo in Europe. It is used to some extent in Spain and. Franco , und in Italy polenta Anglico , mush is a highly prized dish , though made from a grain much inferior in quality to the American nrticla But elsewhere in Europe it is a practically unknown article , oven on the tables of the very poor. But an olTort on the part of our Agri cultural department has been going for ward for some time to sot before Europe the advantage of acquiring n taste lor this extremely abundant und nutritious and , to BO ma'ny Americans , extremely palatable food. Of this Indian corn propaganda Special Agent Charles J. Murphy has been put in charge , nnd his zeal nnd intelligence have justified thn wisdom of his choice. Ho has shown in n number of citic ? nnd countries how the various products of maize should bo pre pared , and by distributing those pro ducts gratis or at a nominal price dissi pated somewhat of the unjust prejudice that exists against our great staple. Just nt present Mr. Murphy's most promising Hold of oporatloas is in Ger many , where n number of mills have been pat in operation , and find it ns much ns they can do to 1111 orders. The plan adopted there is to mix one-third corn meal with two-thirds rye flour , whereby n great lowering of price is alTcctod" without any marked deteriora tion in quality. By moans of this en tering wedge the demand , for corn meal is rapidly increasing in Germany. It is hardly worth wlnlo to call atten tion to the importance of this movement to our far'nora. If once the people of Europe could bo made to see the merits of a grain whoso price is often BO low that it is used for fuel iu the west , there would bo nn nnd to grumbling on the part of our tillers of the sell. For , ac cording to Secretary Rusk's estimate , a rise of merely 5 cents a bushel would result in adding in ono decade the sturtlincr sum of 81,000,000.000 to the value of tbo corn crop in this country.

Jules Verne's Urcam ltcilr/e : < l by n Detroit Inventor. The dream of Jules Verne has been realized. A submarine boat such ns ho drew from his vivid imagination was given its first thorough trial in sub marine navigation at Detroit recently. The electric battery had already boon charged when three men stopped down through the conning tower and closed ever the water tight cover. Insldo the boat was lighted by incandescent lights. At first the boat wont along the surface toward the Detroit rlvor. Then the requisite amount of water was lot into the water spaces , the lover that con trolled the propellers was turned , nnd it boaan to go down. The sensation was peculiar , there being a fooling like that which comes to a povico on a toboggan slide , but this soon passed away , and there was almost a de light in the novelty. The lookout from the conning tower was Interesting. The Deut went slowly at first , but soon In creased the speed to ten miles an hour. The boat having the same spoclllo grav ity as the water , and baing cons true ted on lines that gave the least resistance , could go ahead , down or up as easily ay a tlsh , being able to go faster under water than on the surface. The tests were continued at some length , and the boat way submerged several times un der dltTornnt circumstances. The ex periments showed that the peculiarly constructed propellers were admirably adapted for submerging1 the boat aiu for raising it to the surface , responding instantly to the pilot's touch. It wai also shown that in sinking or rising the hull was kept In a porloctly homonta position. George C > Bakcr'of Chicago the Inventor of this nameless submarine boat , Ilrst conceived the Idea of ills in vention in Sun Francisco. Mr. Baker constructed a small model which worked satisfactorily , nnd In December - comber , 18S1) ) , ho lev a contract for his submarine bout to the Detroit Boat works of Detroit , Mich. The work of construction was necessarily slow , as everything was now and experimental. Sometimes mouths would pass without visible progress , but till this time sug gestions were being hiado and worked upon , The chief delay was in tlio mo tive power , which had to bo adapted to untried conditions. Mr. Baker ciuno over from Chicago as often as possible to superintend the work , and finally , after nearly two yoare , the hull , which then contained nothing but the boiler and on gin us , was launched at the foot of Orleuiis street , Detroit , last October. _ FAMINE IN Mr. Frank O.
