With Increased aud increasing demand for coal came the necessity for opening our lower seams, and deeper shafts meant heavier capital expenditure in colliery enterprise. It is worthy of remark how little the hut-slde public realize of the grot difficulties that often have t<> he overcome in sinking—such as passing through water hearing strata or running sands -or of the enormous cost entailed by some colliery developments. As early tis 1829 John Ruddle, in giving evidence before tho house of lords, declared that the cost of sinking, even then, was frequently $50,000 to $75,000, and J. T. Taylor stated before a select committee on rating <>f mines In 1857 that at Haswell colliery, in the county of Durham, $200,000 was expended In contending with a quicksand and that the shaft had ultimately to be abandoned. At Murton colliery, a few miles distant from Haswell. *1.500,000 was expended in sinking the quantity of water pumped during the operation of passing through the overlying magnesian limestone bed amounted to an average of 9,306 gallot>s a minute, from a depth of 540 feet, and the three shafts ultimately reached the Houlton seam, at a depth of 1.488 feet from the surface. in April, 1843. Many deep aud costly sinkings -several much deeper than in the last Instance—have been put down since the Murton winning, but none, I believe, at a greater expenditure of capital, owing doubtless to the greatly improved methods now employed In carrying on such operations through watery strata, notably the Klnd-Chaudmn system, whereby the shaft is bored out and the side protected by metal cylinders lowered from the surface; and the Peetsch or Goberat methods, whereby the water is frozen in the “running" sand or other water bearing stratum and the shaft sunk through the solid mass. biimb oases is the sand.

Wherever there is a largp area of land offering unusual difficulties in the way of cultivation, particularly semi-arid lands that possess possibilities in the way of irrigation, theta the problem is being studied by the bureau of plant Industry. The country is being dotted with propagating and testing gardens. A central garden for seed testing, propagating, breeding and distribution has just been established at Chico, Cal., 1"" miles north of Sacramento It is the intention to gather at this garden a large and representative collection ftf economic plants of all kinds, particularly of fruits, and to propagate sinh new varieties as arc found worthy of further introduction. A palm garden bas been located on a tract of 15 acres of land at Mecca. Aria., w hore different varieties of date palms will be tested. San Antonio. Tex., recognizing the benefit to be derived from systematic study of local soil and climate conditions, has turned over 125 acres of land near the city and the local water company has volunteered to furnish free of charge all the w'ater needed In the irrigation work looking to the development of crops adapted to the local semi-arid lands. A rice farm has been established at North Galveston, which, owing to the abundance of water and conditions which permit the planting and harvesting of rice by machinery, promises to become one of the most important centers of rice cultivation in America. A pine woods farm at De Quincy. La., and four cereal testing stations in the great wheat-growing states—North Dakota, South Dakota. Nebraska and Texas—complete the prasent chain of stations and afford some idea of the scope of the work that is being undertaken. ENG1NES TESTED IN SHOP. Sha wa na second, The Lady third. Time I: Ii.

One of the greatest triumphs of engineering skill is to be found at the Great Western railway works at Swindon. England, where an ingenious contrivance for giving a locomotive its trial trip without leaving the scene of its construction is in operation. The feature of the testing plant is that the engine, after being placed on the machine, runs on wheels fitted with tires which correspond to the trend and section of the permanent way. A clever braking arrangement secures a representation of the difficulties encountered in running on the metals and all the tests usually made on a trial trip can he conducted inside the works with all the appliances at hand. The dangers of a breakdown and subsequent blocking of the main line arc obviated and the work of experimenting is simplified. This machine is the invention of of the locomotive superintendent, J. G.

Experimenters Try Hand si Breeding Variegated Caterpillars. Some audac ious experimenters have been endeavoring to make the silkworm spin colored silks. Primarily they were endeavoring to ascertain if the green color of some natural silks is produced in any way by the leaves upon which the worms feed, but the work suggests the possibility of securing beautifully tinted raw silks. Several lots of caterpillars were fed from their birth upon leaves impregnated with a red dye. They ate their livid meals without any show of repugnance. and soon began to take on a reddish tint throughout the body. When allowed to spin on freshly collected natural branches these worms produced a red-tinted silk, the whole cocoon presenting a beautiful red coloration. Certain colors, notably blue, were not so apparent in their effects and the worms did not seem to relish the blue leaves as well as the red ones. One of the questions that naturally presents Itself to the inquiring mind is whether selective breeding of sueh artificially stained caterpillars would not result in a race in which the coloration became permanent. The fact is clearly established that the digestive tube has a marked Influence on the silk. As a French writer declares in green silks it is the cholorphyl of the leaves that we observe, and In yellow silks the pigment comes directly from the mulberry leaves, with which it is identical.  •- The 8onth’a Surviving General*. An authoritative list of the surviving generals of the southern confederacy is furnished by Gen. Marcus J. Wright, a confederate veteran employed by the war department. AU the full rank generals had died in 1893, when Beauregard passed away. There are now four surviving lieutenant generals—-Simon B. Buckner, Stephen D. Lee, Alexander P. Stewart and Joseph Wheeler. Of major generals there are ll and of brigadier generals 51. The surviving staff officers of confederacy shrunk one-half in number during the past decade and their disappearance has now become very rapid. CHIEF OF THE SKYSCRAPER?. Canada’s Negligent Statesmen. An Ottawa correspondent reports to the Montreal Gazette that often not more than 40 or 50 of the more than 200 members of the Dominion’s house of commons are in their seats. ‘‘The frequent and long absences from Ottawa of members is even more commented on this session than it was last," he writes, "Among those who do stay at Ottawa most of the time, too, there are many who usually find less to interest them in the debates of parliament than In the various rooms surrounding the phamhpr " Park Raw Banding in New York la SRO Feet Hign. The Park Row building in New York is the tallest Inhabited building in the world. It covers 15,000 square feet of ground and is 30 stories high. The distance from the curbing to the cornice is 336 feet, to the top of the towers, 390 feet, to the top of the flagstaff, 447; the depth of the foundations below curbing is 75 feet, making a total distance from the foundations to the top of the llag-staff, 552 feet. Some 9.000 tons of steel was used in the frame, the weight of the structure is 20,000 tons, and with the live load it is estimated to be 65,000 tons. The building stands so firm that a plumb-line fails to show the slightest tremor even during the highest gales. The number of offices in the building is 950. windows 2,180, doors 1,170, electric lights 7,500, tenants 3,500. By actual count the elevator cars travel 16 miles an hour and carry in IO hours 8,140 passengers. It is said that one of the ear starters knows each tenant and clerk nnd the floor and room in which each is located. The cost of the building was $3,500,000, and the rentals each year are $318,000. The expenses, including Interest, are $281,235, and the surplus is $36,765. ;
