Losses by tire In European cities are

The recent utterances of Lord Kelvin
regarding the difficulties In the way of
navigating the air and his prediction
that flying machines that will "fly" are
a long way off have evoked wide dis
cussion as to the accuracy of his state
ments. It will be admitted that Lord
Kelvin's high standing as a scientist
gives the weight of authority to any
opinion that he may express regarding
actual scientific attainments. But it Is
argued that when the distinguished
scientist gets Into the domain of proph
ecy be lacks enthusiasm In the matter
of navigating the air. Lord Kelvin Is
reported as saying in a recent Interview
that no system of ballooning with
dirigible air ships can ever be of practi
cal use. Many other scientific men who
havo given study to the problem of
aerial navigation share this opinion.
Hut whether the flying machine that
will fly without a balloon is "a long
way off" or not depends largely upon
the Interest and activity that may be
aroused among inventors and scientific
men. This country, which Is usually
la the lead In mechanical development
of this character, seems to be behind
England, France and Germany in ex
perimentation upon flying machines.
Tho efforts of Santos-Dumont to navi
gate the air, while acompllshlng noth.

given a stimulus to inventive genius
In tho direction of evolving a practical
motor device light enough and strong
enough for this purpose. A correspond
ent of a New York paper suggests that

Inventors in this question, "aerial
clubs" should be formed that will offer
prizes large enough to enable them to
go ahead with the necessary experiments.

Camera Constructed to Take
Picture for a ItullrouJ.
A camera almost large enough to
serve ns a Uvlug-room has lately been
constructed and put to practical use,
It Is Indeed a giant among cameras,
nnd requires n corps of nble-bodled
men for Its operation. A massive
framework Is substituted for a tripod
when It Is set up, and the negative
which It takes measures eight feet by
four and one-half feet. Tho Metropoli
tan Magazine describes It as follows:
This marvelous camera owes Its crea
tion to the enterprise of tbo general
passenger agent of a Western railroad.
It wus desired to make a picture of
the company's "Limited Flyer" for ex
hibition purposes, and also to take
some of the picturesque scenes along
the road on a very large scale, but the
general passenger agent could not find
n suitable camera any where.
Enlisting an expert to aid him In tho
project, the railroad man bent his en.
ergles to the task of reproducing every
detail of the most approved typo of
camera on a scale so entirely beyond
the ordinary that the optical company
which received the contract for tho
lenses had to set up special machinery
for their production.
Tho best lumber was secured for tho
walls of the huge box which forms the
dark chamber of tho camera, nnd first
class carpenters, rubbcr-workcrs and
I painters were employed to build uml

Two small mnruiosets less than a

lady, whose pets they nre, that some

nnd affection, but also something akin
to n conscience. The Washington Post
gives ii most interesting nuiiuount of
sonio of their characteristics.
Tho marmosets are full of mischiev
ous, playful wuys, nnd are great
sources of amusement. They will steal
all the hairpins aud knlckknacks from
their mistress' dressing-table. Then
the lady calls forth a pretty display of
coiihclence on the part of her pets.
upon discovering their pllferlngs she
puts her hands to her face aud shows
signs of grief. The marmosets watch
her for n minute and seem disturbed:
then they apparently consult together,
and ttunlly one goes to their hiding
place and brings back a hairpin aud
lays It down.
Tho lady recehes It but still keens
her faco covered and seems to weeu.
Then the other monkey will bring in
several more things. They climb up

upcr with delight, and climb up and
