LATEST NOVELTY IN MOTORS SiinlrtRUii Method ot Oprrnlliiff Ships Serloualy t.tRed hr i:iiu!n:rr. Uunniug a ship by a squlrlgun and operating a ship by having a motorman In tho pilot house uso a controller Just as docs tho motorman ot an electric car aro two Ideas that have been seriously advanced recently by englnecis of high standing. The ship's motorman Idea could easily be applied to a great freight vessel that will begin Us trips tnrougn the great lakes nnd connecting canals next Hprlng. It has Just such a motorman now, mil ho stands with his controller In the engine room Instead of up In tho pilot house. A longer cable attached to hid controller Is all that is necossury to en able him to do his work In the pilot house. Oil engines are uced to generate oloctrlclty, and tho electricity la used to turn the propellors; so electricity runs the ship In much the same way that It does a trolley car. Tho squlrtguu Idea Is to propel a ship by squirting out water through pipes nt the stern of the ship, where propellers ordinarily are located. Water would b tnkon In from the front end by great pipes, given a push when It reaches tho engine room, and then sent rushing out nt the stern of the ship. This samu ficheine has been thought ot before, but never put Into use, because tt cost so much to give that push to the water, The wonderful efficiency ot a ner,' pump, which now pumps some ot the water supply of London and, has attracted tho attention of engineers everywhere makes the scherm appear less absurd, In this pump water Is admitted Into a chamber until tho chamber Is nearly full, and then gasoline or somo other oil, In the form of vapor, is admitted Into the chamber nnd exploded, Just as an auto mobile uses gasoline. The explosion ot tho vapor forces tho water out, and the samo operation Is repeated over and dvtr again. It does the work surely and cheaply. The Inventor of this new typo of pump has drawn plans for a squlrt- gun propeller that will get the push on the water from two of these pumps. Saturday Evening Post.j IDLE ACRES NEED TILLING Nebraska hm set toward which to work In a campaign of soltoltlng for subscrip tions It Is very soon to begin, noeordtns to Carson Ittldiulh ot Lincoln, chairman of the commission. The commission waa created last year and Is only now netting 111 shape for active worn. Tho purposo of the commission Is to help establish the agricultural system of field demonstration through the stnto as rapidly ns possible. In other words, tho commission hopes to unlock to the farmers ot the state th results of the sclitjtlfla experiments con stantly made nt the expctlmcnt stations, Instead of having this Information simply stored up In heavy volumes of .books on musty shelves. The commission and the work It 1ms outlined has the endorsement ot organized agriculture ot the state, ot the Omaha nnd Lincoln comnierutul clubs, and the State Bankers' association. Also It has tho endorsement nt tho large business and tigitculturel ltilerosta all over tho state. Only four counties In Nebraska today huvo cxpeit farm demonstrators. Tho jo four counties would not be without tliein now. Tho farmers who avail themselves of the demonstrator' expert knowledge throughout tho year, are beslnnlng to feel that he l Indispensable. Tho plan ot this commission Is to create a fund ' with which to aid tu paying th expenso ' of farm demonstrators, and to help carry thin work along until the value of. tho system is seen and public sentiment be come strong enough to support It widely In the statu by taxation and appropriation, nam pchool nnd lives with his uncle nnd aunt, as he Is an orphan.

New Vast Itooni for Improvement Productive Capacity of I.nud. In The Department of Agriculture esti mates that there are 1,110,000,000 acres ot tillable land in the United States, Alio that only 27 per cent of this Immense area la under cultivation. It might ,uM that of the 27 per cent actually cultlvatol comparatively few acres are handled In such a way as to show anything like their maximum production. Here is food for the pessimist. The man who fears that the country la near- Ing natural exhaustion may find cheer In the thought that llttlo more than t quarter ot tho available agricultural land Is being made productive. Supply In evitably meets demand, and as tho de mand for agricultural products Increases the supply will be enlarged by the devel opment of regions which have not been touched by the plow. Even now the beef problem Is turning the attention of wideawake Americans to the financial possibilities of catt! raising in sections of the country which have not hitherto been devoted to this Industry. Any other agricultural prob lem as it arises will be met Intelligently. The United mates has the land; and It has the brains; all that Is needed I Judicious directing of the brains Into the needed lines of activity. It will be a long time before this coun try will become dependent on other na. tlons for Its food supply.

Ill on The vexed, old and ever new question of tipping Is raised once more by two in teresting announcements. In New York a popular restaurant has put up these related signs: "Minimum wago for women, Wi per week," "No tipping, please." The patrons of the placj must feel that business Is meant. Mnny tip frcm sympathy, and a few from van ity. Where a fair wage Is paid there Is no more reason for tipping a waltor than for tipping a saleswoman or a clerk. Perhaps the Unless restaurant charges a llttlo more for food, but who does not prefer such a system to the nuisance fit tipping, with the Impudence, discrimina tion, servility and snobbery It breeds? Tho other item is a Chicago one. The Illinois Athletic club, with the approval of tho members, rescinded Its antt-tlpplng tule because It could not be strictly en forced and favoritism resuitel, But the club has not revived tho tlp-as-you-pleaso system. To each food check S cents is added, and the proceeds are distribute! among the waiters. uo tins moamea scneme there Is ,u serious objection. It mends If It does not enJ.
