   Hutchinson News (Newspaper) - November 7, 1890, Hutchinson, Kansas                                2 HUTCHINSON DAILY NEWS: FitiDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 7.1890. NEW   SUBMARINE   BOAT. An ItilU-rt Irtvi'jiUmi \VI*lrh M>iv Knvnln-llonir.o Xrmil U'.irl ipr- A submarine ygrsqI, wlilr.li. wlion \ivr-foctod. will hav� snlvml tho proMom of ubmarlno navigation, nt, \rn-\i in thn opinion of th� Homo oom-spmiilent, of thn London Standard, lias 1m mi iim-nlcrt "by ft young Italian on|n-"*�r, Signer Uataamolln.   Tho prinoi\i:il fcunin' ot tl'it! vaancl ifi that it Is �ptn>.ric.�l.   In tlio interior, says this  rorrospourtent,  "in room for tho imvculimry, \>y wliirh it is poBBlblo to propol, stoor, wink and r.v.to to tho surface again with perfect, oaso and nlmnlicity this ttalla nautlfa (nau-��tleal hall), as it, is calW in Italian.   It ift, moreover, fitted with Iqusph hy which thoHo in tho interior can not only guiilo . th�ir way, tint also roo the .mibmorKori Utticlns that it in desired, to living to tho Surface   For this pnrposui tho muitiral hall  is  furnished with   grapnels and : hooks on tlio outsldo which ran ho ma-. nlpulatcd from tho interior. UothonUm surface and undor tho sea it can bo 8 too rod cither in a direct lino or turned �;. with porfeotoase. ** Among those who wltuoHsed the r.x-perinionU with tl.is vessel at Civil.a Vocohla tlio other day wore competent persons sent by tho Ministers of Marino, of War, of Industry and Commons; and . of Public Works, who are to report on this now invention. Tho hull underwent all the experiments perfectly and without a hitch'. It was uiado to sink oevorat meters below tho surface of tho aea, and directed straight to a lai-go ahip, under whoso hull it passed. A largo, flat board was then thrown into . the sea, the nautical hall being invisible, as It was still undor water. Ity and by a loud report was hoard. A mass of water rose closo to where the hoard had been, and as the foam produced by tlio explosion cloarod away all that was to bo soon of the hoard was a few shattered remains. Those in tho ball had seen the board thrown into the sea, hail at mice procoeded to it, placed their cartridge under itand had oloartid out of the way boforo the explosion took pi act*, to illustrate how quickly the geti.ing out  f tho way can bo elTectotl, the hall was brought to tho surfaco tho moment, the . explosion was over a good fm-tv vards .��cIT. "A beam with weights attached tu it. so as to make it sink, was then thrown i overboard off the stoamor on which the spectators  were  watching.     The ball sank aftor it and in a few minutes to - tho surfaco again with the bean, which It bad picked up with its grapnels. The . oxaotitude and precision of theditlieuH maneuvers were greatly praised. The .machinery in this experimental trail is worked by hand-both propokT, steering and other apparatus In a much larger ball, which 111 * * engineer intends constructing. t he propeler wilt bo driven by an elctric motor. Another most important, mailer that this submarino ball has solved in tho taking of submarine photographs. The principle on which this invention of Sig. llalsamello is based U the law of the specific weight of bodies; but the Bphoro form adopted for ttii1^ nautical bail is a new theory, which, perhaps, might bo difficult to understand. In tact, telling the thing as it is. it would seem impossible that the round body could have a rectilinear motion. Hut profound study has demonstrated that guch can be tho case. Not only does this ball navigato in a straight  line, 1 but when it is necessary to turn it it does so with the greatest easo on iLa own axis, which in navigation is a groat advantage- Tho government lias looked with much favor on this invention of Big. BalsatnoHo and it is thought prob-able that it will buy tho patent." Tar out, followed some, track of ford, nd'Jiug to the loneliness as does a  herman nearest to us.

At the signnling point a battery and electro-magnet, are placed at the sides of the line; at tho receiving station a relay is established hy meansof another battery and magnet, and an alarm is established in derivation. Two wires form the connection botwoou tho two stations. Under ordinary conditions a continuous current traverses the whole extent of tho circuit. When a tram is passing the armatures of the electromagnets art; displaced, and tho normal current is replaced by two local currents, one of which, at the signaling station, is closed by the springs of tho train, while the other at the receiving station traverses the alarm in derivation and sets it going. The other system was invented by M. Italllebache, anil consists of an insulated counter rail placed at tho point from which tho train in movomentatarta tho signal, and in connecting this rail by a wire to tho station at which the signal is received, which is furnished with a battery and an alarm. Tho springs of a passing train establish tho connection, the alarm is sounded, and not only announces tho prosonce of the train but also its speed and tho number of carriages comuoslng It, A very uao-ful adjunct is a controling wlro hy which the circuit can bo closed and the operator satisfy himself at any time that the apparatus is in working order.-Chicago News.

A Seoteh woman, the wife of a Philadelphia merchant, returns from a summer in her own land with souio very funny stories of the canny middle-class Caledonians. As a girl, the nearness characterizing them was unnoticed, but after living on this side, she says, American liberality in money matters contrasts very strikingly with Scotch thrift Uer first outing after getting homo was on the invitation of a young man, a cousin, who was civil enough to ask her to a county flower-show. As his father's carriage was usod in transporting ibom to tbo show no question of who was to pay arose until they reached the entrance. Hero tho lady, accustomed to having her escort make arrangements, stood gazing idly about, giving tho matter no further thought. Picture hor rude awakening to national customs when Cousin Kohln gave her elbow a gentle nudge, and in the most matter-of-fact way advised her of the sum necessary to purchase a ticket. "Just you step over there, Jennie, and pay it to that man in the plaid."

He was a prosperous young Ulas-gow merchant, and brought his people a number of pretty souvenirs. Tho morning of his departure a hill for two weeks' board was laid on his plate, itemizing every thing, to the candles burned In bis bedroom. In no way offended by thin observance of a time-honored custom, tho young fellow looked through the account and objected to a oharge for bacon he had never oaten. "The meat was on the table, my son, and if you failed lo enjoy it you must pay for being a fool," replied his father. And so he rendered his Indebtedness to the last farthing. Where the lads and laBsies go off and set up establishments of their own, an unwritten law is rigidly observed of paying tax to the old homestead whenever they return to enjoy its hospitality, -Illustrated American, THE   SKUNK'S   ODOR.
