RECENT SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERIES
Note. These papers on practical science liae
been prepared for The Oregonlan's Home Study
Circle by Professor William J. Hopkins, of
XX. MOVIXG PICTURES.
If we look at one of the conventional pic
tures of a running horse a picture
ti years old preferably and compare It
with somo of the more recent pictures of
the same subject we may see a marked
difference. In the older picture the horee
is stretched out In an attitude which, to
the eye not specially trained, suggests
speed. In the more recent one he may
perhaps be seen standing more like an
awkward statue on one leg, with no visi
ble means of support for the rest of htm.
And yet this is. in a sense, true to life,
for its represents accurately the position
of the horse at one Instant. Except to
tho technically trained eye It conveys
no impression of rapid motion, for tho
cyo does not see things that way.
Persistence of Vision.
Tho response of the optic nerve and Its
connections to any actions which produces
tho sensation of light is not Instantan
eous, nor does the sensation cease at
once with the cessation of the cause. It
persists for an appreciable time, varying
from about one-thirteenth to one-tenth
of a second, according to tho intensity of
the light In the case of tho running
horse, therefore the rapidly changing po
sitions blend into an impression which is
pretty well represented by the kind of
picture that vsas customary before tbe
days of Instantaneous photography.
It would never have occurred to any
one before ilaybridge had come to this
country and had shown his instantaneous
pictures of moving horses that any horse
ever assumed such attitudes. Even with
the evidence before their eyes the first
sensation of the majority of his hearers
was one of amusement and Incredulity
His photgraphs were obtained by using
a series of cameras so placed that the
horse came before each one In succession
and caused the exposure to be made
at the right Instant by the breaking of
a thread. With the cameras at the right
Intervals there was thus obtained a series
of pictures which showed successive In
stantaneous attitudes of the horse, with
Irlef breaks between. If these pictures
could be presented before the eye, one
at a time, in order and rapidly enough,
the Impression of one would persist until
the next appeared and tho horse would
be sen running, trotting or cantering
naturally. Such an Instrument, very
crude and simple, existed at that time

All machines for showing moving pic
tures by whatever name they may be
called, are nothing more than Improve
ments and elaborations on the optical
principle of the zoetrope. There are but
few essential things which a successful
machine of this sort must accomplish,
but their accomplishment Is not in every
case, altogether easy. The pictures must
be presented so rapidly that there Is no
appreciable break between, either In
light or In positions of the moving figures.
The light must be admitted exactly as the
picture Is in place, and must be cut off
just before the picture Is changed. Tho
different pictures must be shown in exact
register, or there will be a shifting or
dancing effect which Is not Intended and
Instead of a number of separate ca
meras to take pictures, a single Instru

is necessarily Jerky, for It must be at
rest ior the exposure, while the shutter
is open, and move ahead one space while
the shutter is closed. By the develop
ment of this long strip of film there Is
obtained a series of negatives, from which
positives are printed. In similar long
strips, and these positive strips aro used
in the viewing or projecting Instrument
If the positives are examined separately
It will usually be difficult if not Impossi
ble to detect any difference In positions
of the figures in pictures which He near
together in the strip, and when these pic
tures are passed through the projecting
Instrument at the same rate as that of the
taking camera the movements of the fig
ures upon tho screen appear natural and
The projecting Instrument for moving
pictures Is a regular projecting lantern,
with the addition of mechanism, attached
to the objective, for keeping the shutter
and the pictures in motion. This motion
Is kept up by a motor or by a hand
wheel, and the shutter or fan is run by the
same mechanism that moves the film.
A picture Is held against the opening
while the lens is uncovered, then re
leased as the vane covers the lens, and tho
next one takes Its place, to be shown. In
turn, the Instant the vane has passed.
The chief use to which moving pictures
have been applied thus far is that of en
tertainment and unfortunately the sub
jects which have aroused the most In
terest have been prize fights. There are,
however, many directions In which this
Instrument may prove of great value. It
Is proposed to make use If it In war, and
how far such an Idea can be carried out
we shall perhaps know better after the
rinw of th nrpsent -war In Africa. There
are certain practical difficulties In having
a klnetoscopo camera at the front always
ready for service, even If its use were
The value of a series of Instantaneous
photographs taken at short Intervals In
analyzing rapid motion Is sufficiently ob
vious. By passing the pictures through
the viewing Instrument at a reduced speed,
the "motion may be made as slow as we
wish and Its nature clearly seen. Another
application of this principle which has re

Then, passing the scries of pictures from

method may be applied to many things
other than plants. To this modification
of the principle of moving pictures it has
been considered necessary to give a new
name, the "phantoscopo."
BUTTER AND OLEOMARGARINE
Each. Should Be Sold on Its Merits,
Dut Neither Legislated Asralnst.
GHAT'S RIVER, Or., April 2S. (To the
Editor.) I saw an artlclo In The Orego
nlan of April 15, headed "Butterlne and
Labor." You say: "Tho contest between
the dairy Interests of the country and the
mrmnffinnirers of nrocess butter, common.
ly called butterlno, has been taken Into
Congress, through what is Known as tne
Grout bllL The bill does not propose to
levy a prohibitive tax upon the manufac
ture of the so-called butterlne, but it does
propose to levy a tax of 10 cents per pound
on all oleomargarine colored to resemble
butter. They can make all the oleo
margarine they want and. employ all tho
labor they want to; but let them put It
on the market for oleomargarine and sell
It for oleomargarine, and not color it to
resemble butter and sell It for butter."
In the first place It Is not butter, and It
should not be sold as butter; It Is oleo
margarine, and It should be sold for oleo
margarine. No one Is opposed to the
manufacture of oleomargarine; but let
them sell it on Its own merits, and not
deceive the innocent public with a counter
felt butter. You might as well favor a
counterfeit money for the people as coun
terfeit butter. The Grout bill wants to
put a tax of 10 cents a pound on all oleo
margarine, colored to resemble butter, and
to tako off the 2 cents tax that Is already
on it so that those who want oleomargar-
! Ine will get It cheaper. There Is no reason
why oleomargarine snouia not oe manu
factured as oleomargarine, as butter
should be for butter. There Is no one
who objects to it The objection is on
coloring It to resemble butter and selling
it for butter, and It should not be allowed.
Those who want butter should have It,
and those who want oleomargarine ought
to have It The artlclo said that oleo
margarine Is indorsed by competent food
experts as a wholesome article of food.
It Is more fit for skid grease or axle grease
than for food. It further says the prime
object of the bill Is to enable the butter
trust to raise the price on butter and
make that article of food dearer. There
Is no butter trust for the reason that butter-making
is in the hands of millions, of
too many millions for any trust to get hold
of It and all trying to manufacture the
best article, so ,as to got a market for it
for a poor article of butter Is not worth
making. When grease and tallow and all
kinds of diseased carrion and slush Is
manufactured and colored to resemble but
ter, and Is sold side by side with our gilt
edged butter for gilt-edged butter. It Is
time for butter-makers and butter-eaters
to kick about It WILLIAM DRISCOLL.
"So Registering; "In. Advance."
COXDON. Or.. May 5. CTo the Editor.)
Can a man who arrived In Oregon from
California April 12, 1M0, register now for
the purpose of voting at the November
election, by showing In the "remarks"
column that he registers for the Novem
ber election, without the necessity of hav
ing to "swear In" on election day? N. P.
No. The man Is not entitled to citizen
ship until be shall have resided in the
state six months. It Is held that a pros
pective voter cannot register "in advance."
For example: A young man bcrn In Ore
gon, who will become of age next July or
next October is not permitted to register
now. He will be obliged to "swear In" his
vote. In the case of the man from Cali
fornia, what positive assurance is there
that he will remain in the state six months
and thus acquire the right to vote?
FORT SHERMAN RESERVE
WHAT SHALL BE JJQXE WITH TT
WHEX SOLDIERS LEAVE.
Proposition to Use the Abandoned
Post for a National Soldiers'
Home Contains 090 Acres.
WASHINGTON, May 3. The quesUon of
utilizing the buildings at Fort Sherman.
Idaho, for the purpose of a National
Soldiers' Home Is again being agitated
throughout Eastern Washington and also
in Idaho. A memorial, which was adopt
ed by the Legislature of the State of
Washington three years ago, and which
was presented- by Hon. C E. Mohundro,
of Latah, Wash., has been Introduced
In the Senate by Senator Foster. This
memorial, sets forth that the buildings
and Improvements at Fort Sherman will
be worthless to the United States and
cannot be sold for any great amount of
money. Attention is called to the beau
tiful location of tho fort on the north
end of Coeur d'AIene Lake, and Corigress
Is therefore urged to give consideration
to the establishment of a Soldiers' Home
at that place. In order that the men who
defended the country's flag In the time of
peril may have a pleasant and healthful
place to spend their last days.
Senator Shoup, of Idaho, has ateo Joined
In the agitation In favor of the establish
ment of a home at Fort Sherman. Mr.
Mohundro argues that the State of Wash
ington is called upon to sustain a Sol
diers' Home at Ortlng, whereas Institu
tions of that kind should be maintained
largely by the Nation, Inasmuch as the
soldiers enjoying tho benefits of the home
fought to save the Nation and not the
The War Department is of the opinion
that tho detachment at Fort Sherman will
finally abandon the place about July 1
next proceeding to Fort Wright near
Spokane. All of the .portable property is
being removed and transferred to other
posts, and In the next 30 days an In
ventory of the buildings remaining and
other property will be forwarded to the
department The military reservation
contained about S00 acres, and such Im
provements thereon as can be moved are
subject to transfer to the Interior De
partment under the act of July 5. 1S34,
which provides for the disposal of aban
doned and useless military reservations.
Wounded Washington Volunteers.
Much atteption has been attracted to
the pension claim of J. B. Wetherbee,
of Seattle, who was a cook In Company
G, First Washington Volunteer Regi
ment While serving as a cook. Wether
tee was ordered to assist .In the con
struction of a telegraph line, and while
executing this order was shot
Bills for Wetherbee's relief were intro
duced by Senator Foster and Congress
man Jones. The Senate bill was favor
ably considered by the Senate pension
committee, allowing HO per month for the
totally disabled cook, but the House bill
provided simply for placing him on the
pension roll.. The Senate pension com
mittee favors stating In bills of this na
ture the exact amount to be allowed, but
In the House It was argued that Wether
bee might some time, recover his health,
and that then the pension should cease.
The women of tho Red Cvoss in the Stale
of Washington, who have worked very
actively for Wetherbee's relief, feel that
the unfortunate man will remain per
manently totally incapacitated.
In order speedily to secure the desired
legislation. Senator Foster has agreed to
allow the House bill to be substituted, and
will endeavor to secure even more than.
$40 for Wetherbee from the Pension Bu
reau. A largo number of tho officers and men
of the First Washington Volunteer Reg
iment have testified to the facts, and va
rious petitions and statements are on file
regarding every feature of the case, which
Is considered unusual and peculiar.
Not being an enlisted man. It was Im
possible for Wetherbee to obtain rellel
under existing pension laws, but the pen
sion committee. In both the Senate and
House, felt that ho merited s. pension on
account of his deplorable condition and
In recognition of tho many appeals made
In his behalf.

Multnomah Hose Company.
A pleasant affair took place last evening
at the quarters of Multnomah Hose Com
pany, on Mississippi avenue. It being the
occasion of the meeting of the company.
District Englner Holden secured a very
handsome and appropriate picture for pre

Shot Two Cougars.
E. S. Marsters, who resides on his farm
near Crawfordsvllle, heard his chickens
making a horrible noise Thursday morn
ing at 1 o'clock, and thinking a "varmint"
of some kind was after another mess of
fowl, took his dogs and gun and gave
chase. The dogs soon had "something"
treed, "and soon a chicken came tumbling
from the tree. Mr. Marsters remained un
der the trees with his dogs until daylight,
when he took deliberate aim and "brought
down a yearling cougar. A little later he
fired another shot Into a tree near by
and brought down another cougar, about
the same size. They measured about five
feet Mr. Marsters prizes these young
fellows very highly; says It has cost him
about $20 worth of chickens and turkeys
to raise them.

There are many people, women and
men, who suffer from nervous disorders,
and who are misled as to the true nature
of the malady on account of the complex
symptoms. When the nervous system is
at fault, symptoms arise that are entirely
remote from the seat of the disorder, and
this is why people will doctor for stom
ach trouble, heart trouble and other dis
orders when in reality it is the nerves
alone that are at fault. This diagram
will serve to teach you your exact con
dition if your nerves are at fault. A
prominent symptom is headache or dizzi
ness (Fig. 1). The headache may be
throbbing or dull. Other symptoms are
hollow eyes (Fig. 2), pale or sallow com
plexion (Fig. 3), palpitation or fluttering
all nervous disorders. HUDYAN will strengthen the
nerves. HUDYAN will invigorate the entire system.
Complete nervous prostration is most serious. HUD-
