San Antonio Daily Light (Newspaper) - October 20, 1891, San Antonio, Texas 3ltc daily gig act. Tuesday october 20, 1891. Bids in f Light. The Force they Vee figured Down to horse Power. Hiram s. Maxim Iii the Century. Every living creature Bird or insect which Bas been Able to raise it self from the Earth Aud to propel it self through the air has a body Many times heavier than the same volume of air and is endowed with the Power of exerting great mechanical Force in proportion to its weight. It is the expending of this physical Force upon the surrounding air that enables it to Fly. But the actual Force required by Birds in their flight has until recently been largely a matter of conjecture. Many unsatisfactory attempts have been made with dynamometers attached to the Bird itself to measure the Force of its Muscles but very Little of value has been accomplished in this direction. Mathematicians without number have invented formulae Aud discussed the question of flight but the most remarkable feature has been the difference in the results arrived at. Many years ago a mathematician in France wrote a treatise in which he proved that the common Goose in flying exerted a Force equal to 200 horse Power another proved that it was Only fifty horse Power and he was followed by still another who proved very much to hi9 own satisfaction that it was Only ten horse Power. Later on others have written to prove that a Goose expends Only about one horse Power in flying. At the present time however Many mathematicians eau be found who Are ready to prove that Only one tenth of a horse Power is exerted by a Goose. I do not know on what basis the earlier writers amp me to their conclusions. Those who proved the flight of a Goose about one horse Power Iii Eugery Haye figured it on the follow due basis suppose a Goose to weigh 12 pounds the wings surface being Only a Little Over three Square feet the wings alone timing the Only supporting Power while flying. Such a Goose would tall through the air provided it made no motion with its wings at the rate of about 26 Miles per hour or say 2600 feet per minute. They claim that the Goose in flying must therefore perform work which is equal to raising his body 2300 feet per minute or As fast As it would fall if it triad e no Mot Ion with its wings it is quite True if a plane having a portico of 3 Square feat should be loaded with 12 pounds that it would in info gun Luu air a a late of 23u0 feet per minute and if air was propelled by mechanical Energy against the Bottom Ide of this Plaue with sufficient Force to hold it in equilibrium and prevent it from falling the Energy required to propel this column of air would be equal to lifting 12 pounds 2300 feet per minute. The conventional unit of Energy in England and America is i Pound raised one foot High we should therefore have 12 pounds x 2300 As tile Energy in foot pounds which would be 27, Coo foot pounds in one minute of time now As it requires 33,000 pounds for one horse Power they claim that it follows that a 12-Pound Goose flying exerts 12 x 2300 divided by 33,000 making .83 horse Power. This however is wide of the truth. In my experiments i have found that the advantages arising from moving Forward on to new air the inertia of which has not been disturbed would reduce the Energy required to less Thau Oue Teu fcb part of this because the air unit for a in would not yield one tenth part As much if the Goose were moving Forward at a High velocity As it would if the Goose Ren aimed in the Bine position and flapped its wings with sufficient Energy to sustain itself in Tho air without moving ahead at ail. The Goose would therefore exert no More than .083 horse Power which is rather More than halt a mail lower Aud is at the rate of 144. 6 pounds to the horse Power. With an unearthly Hiss the Serpent dashed off through the weeds Aud underbrush with a rapidity and Roar that could have been heard at a considerable distance. In its maddened Speed it broke off Bush is As thick As a Many a wrist and As it dashed through the Creek the water went churning and boiling into the air As if sent up by a Cyclone. The Medicine Man stood awestruck for a while but dually recovering his senses he began to investigate matters for his own satisfaction. He concluded from what he could see that the reptile must have been not less than 25 feet Long and As Large around the body As an Ordinary sack of flour. The color was of an Asebu Hue with a slight mixture of Green. Nor the place where the head of the reptile Lay the Medicine Man found a Short Penola Anda Small piece of paper on which was scrawled something that could not be read. The supposition prevails that this monster caught and swallowed some unfortunate person and that while the reptile was covering him with slime As All serpents do preparatory to the act of Deglutition the poor victim tried to w rite upon the slip of paper the awful Fate that befell him. Our informant stated that it was the most thrilling and exciting episode in his life and that he would not repeat it again for All of Dekalb county. Local Market report. Ill Dos. No. I.

If wheat is grown and the Grain sold even though the Straw is led to the Stock and the manure put Back upon the Laud it is More exhaustive Thau con grown and fed out on the farm and the manure applied to the soil. Mature from Straw alone even when fed to Stock is of much less fertilizing value than from Corn and Corn fodder when fed to Stock and applied to the land. By growing Clover properly the Laud May be gradually built up but this plan implies the feeding out of crop to the Stock on the farm and applying the mature or the turning of it under after a Good growth has been secured. To grow Clover Aud sell off the farm will exhaust the Fertility As certainly As growing and Selling wheat. Changing from one crop to another May lengthen the time that the soil will hold out As different plants require different elements of knt food but the growing and sell off the crops let them be what they May will gradually exhaust the Fertility and when it is worn out from growing and maturing a variety of crops the Laud is in a worse condition than if run Down from growing Only one. By growing wheat and Selling the Grain and buying bran Aud Oil meal to feed in connection with the Straw a much better fertilizer can be secured and the wheat be made a much less exhaustive crop while the att a is used to a better advantage As a feed. To save the soil a regular system of rotation of crops should he carried out growing such crops As Are Hest Adamid to the locality and feeding out to Thrifty Stock on tile farm making saving and applying of All of the maim re possible. While this May not be All that is necessary to build up a run Down soil it. Will Boot material Aid so much so that till majority of Farmers can not afford to Overlook and it aided by glowing and blowing Limiter Green crops amt of using commercial fertilizers when it can be comm to an advantage it will be found possible not Only to keep up the Fertility but in a majority of cases to increase.

Mayesville to a travelling Salesman who is in the employ of an Eastern Medicine Arm has had an experience that he will not soon forget. He was driving along in the Timber which skirts Grindstone Creek in the Eastern Parte the county. The warm weather had made him drowsy Aud he has fallen into adore when his team suddenly stopped Aud snorted As if in fear he was awake in a moment Aud looked to see w hat excited his team. He could see nothing except a Large log that w As lying across the Road ahead of him some 39 or 40 Yards. He urged his team Forward but the animals re fused to move and showed that they were thoroughly frightened. He was puzzled. Finally he became suspicious tha probably some men were lying behind the log waiting for him to drive up when they would Rob him. Getting out of his vehicle he turned his learn around in the Road and securely fastened them. Then taking from under the seat a heavy revolver he advanced toward the log expecting each moment to see a gun pointed at him. But he kept on advancing until he was close enough to look Over the log Aud see that there was nothing to fear. The Peculiar appearance of the log attracted his attention and stepping up he put out his hand to feel Tao bark. Horror upon horrors the supposed log was nothing else than a monstrous in amp a.
