Possibilities of Liquid Air. "
In discussing the possibilities of
liquid air, Prof. Elihu Thomson says
that one of its leading features, if it a
were developed commercially, would a
be its emergency value. By this it is
meant the ability to obtain at will a
sudden output far beyond the normal.
Animal power notably has this emer
gency value, and the success of electric *.
trolley systems is in a great measure
owing to the fact that when needed the
station can be called upon for a tern
porary delivery to any single car or *'
train of a power greatly in excess of ?
the rated output of the motors.
The use of liquid air mixed with
combustibles to form a high explosive d
has been suggested. Such an explosive
could ba made at the time of use, and
if it were left unexploded, either by "
accident or design, it would soon be-p 1
c me harmless by the evaporation of
the liquid gas,
F .r the projection of high explosives
there should be a distinct place for
liquid air, as it can rapidly be convert- u
ed into compressed air at six tons to
the equate inch. Compressed air is q
r. r. used for propelling mobile torpe* c
does, or find torpedoes. Dirigible tors
pedoes depend for power either on 1
compressed air or the electric energy -
of a storage battery.
. A storage battery would be probably
from five to ten times as heavy as li- ,
quid air in a receptacle, (nr equal euer

that liquid air may presently be used

' SOUTH MAKING GOOD PROGRESS
A Great Increase in New Industries
Over Last Year i* Shown.
Chattanooga, 'Tenn,, June 30
I hat the south has for some lime been
making remarkable strides in the field
of legitimate manufacturing and de
velopment enterprises has been fully
recognized and some details of this
progress for the first six mouths of
this year are of more Chan passing in
terest. The Tradesman has compiled
a report of the new industries authori
tatively reported for the second quarter
cf 1899, and this report shows that the
new industries for lite quarter ending
July 1, 1899, exceed by 60 per cent
those of the same period last year.
Tn commenting on this report, The
Tradesman says that the growth indi
cated during the quarter was general
rather than special.
The new industries reported for
April, May and June, 1898, numbered
483; for the same months this year
they are 775—a gain of 292, and this
gain is pretty well distributed among
different branches of industry. Cotton
and its products show the heaviest gain
however. On July 1, 1898, there were
noted 37 new compresses and gins, 29
new textile mills and 22 cotton seed
oil mills; today’s report shows 45 new
gins and compresses, 76 textile mills
and 71 cotton seed oil mills.
Municipal progress and. prosperity
may be fairly inferred from the items
of light and water. There are 28 now
watur works and 55 new electric light
power plants reported today, against
22 water works and 44 electric light
and power plants that were new a year
ago. These are the heavier gains.
Compared with the report for the
first quarter of this year, the second
quarter shows a gaiu of 117 new in
dustries. Combining the two quarters,
the new industries reported during the
first six months of 1899 include 30
brick and tile works, 15 canning fac
tories, 69 compresses and gins, 130
textile mills, 93 electric light and
power plants, 138 flour and grist mills,
<»0 iron working and iron making
plants, 4/ ice factories, 66 mines and
quarries, 101 cotton seed oil mills, 17
phosphate and fertilizer companies, 21
tobacco factories, 10 sugar mills, 43
water works and 274 woodworking

The New Reporter
He was just from college, and hav
ing secured a place as reporter on a
morning paper, be was assigned to
report a fire on the west side. He did
the work in great style, making half a
column of it—for he was working on
space, you know—and this is the way
he began the story :
“Suddenly, on the still night air
rang the shrill cry of fire, aud simul
taneously the devouring tongue of
flame, whose light as it played along
the roof's edge had caught the eagle
eye of the midnight watcher, leaped
forth, no longer playful, but fierce and
angry in its consuming greed. Like
glowing, snaky demons, lurid links
entwined the doomed building; in
venomous hisses aud spurts the flames
shot into the overhanging darkness,
while from every window and door
poured forth a dense sulphurous va
por, the deadly, suffocating breath of
an imprisoned fiend, etc
Next morning the embryo journalist
was up early to see how bin brilliant

he read :

Let Them Riner the Bells
If we want to get along with the Cu
bans and impress them with our pur
pose to do them all the good we can,
we must not interfere with their local
customs where such interference lias
no other effect than to irritate them,
Gen. Ludlow, the military governor of
Havana, it seems to us, has made sev
eral orders which have been lacking
in wisdom. Some time ago he made
an order prohibiting smoking in cabs
and in public places ; also prohibiting
men from appearing ir the streets
dressed only in trousers aud under
shirts. He also prohibited bull fights,
and cock fights, and other custom? to
which the people were very much at
tached. His latest order that causes
irritation prohibits the ringing of
The bishop of Havana has paid no
attention to the order against the
ringing of church bells, and we do not
see any good reason for the order. If
the people of Havana want their
church bells rung why not let them
ring them? The church bells are rung
inmost American towns. It is true
that there is a sentiment, based on the
protests of nervous people, against the
custom, but the regulation of the
matter is left to the people themselves.
If the government at Washington
should attempt to interfere with the I
ringing of the bells in the various!
cities and towns there would be such
a protest that it would be found nec
essary to cease such interference at
It may be that Gen. Ludlow and
some others in Havana don’t approve
of the ringing of church bells, but they
are not the whole population of the
city. The ringing of church bells is
undoubtedly a long established custom
there, and to put a stop to it by a mili
tary order is calculated to create a
sentiment in Havana against Ameri
cans. If this interference with local
customs is continued the Cubans will
begin to regard our presence lhera
with disfavor. They will consider u*
as tyrants, and seek to get rid of us as
quickly as possible. Besides, this in*
terference with their local customs
will make it difficult to introduce re
forms that are really necessary for the
welfare and happiness of the people.
Let us confine ourselves to such mat
ters as are necessary for the establish
ing of a stable and intelligent govern
ment in the island and leave local cus
toms to ba changed aud bettered by
time and education. By pursuing that
course we shall stand a much better
chance of doing the Cubans real and
lasting good.—Savannah News.

For three months she coughed incessantly

for Consumption, and was so much reliev
ed on taking first dose, that she slept al!
night; and with two bottles, has been ab
