Periscope Described as Really
Gives Clear Images, but Has Some De
fects Which Scientists Are En
deavoring to Rectify Tires
the Observer Quickly.
The periscope, the "eye" of the
submarine, is described as a simple in
strument whose construction has
proved a complicated problem for op
ticians. "In its simple form," an op
tician says, "it is a vertical steel tube
about 20 feet long, with a reflecting
prism at the top and the lenses of
a telescope at the bottom. It is, in
fact, a simple telescope whose line
of light 'turns a corner' from hori
zontal to vertical as it passes through
the prism. This Instrument takes in
45 degrees of the horizon, or one
eighth of the total field, at one view.
By turning the tube on its axis, the
reBt comes Into sight successively.
"This periscope gives very clear
images, but as It can be used with
only one eye at a time it does not
allow of distinguishing the different'
planes of vision very well, and tires
the, observer's eye rather quickly.
Binocular periscopes have been at
tempted, but luminosity Is lost by
gaining the advantage of stereo
"The so-called combination perl
scope allows of vision with both eyes,
though it is not stereoscopic. A real
image is thrown on a ground-glass
screen, much like that of a photo
graph camera; it may be looked at
with the two eyes, but no impres
sion of depth and space is given. The
screen avoids excessive fatigue, and
It can be used only in bright light.
The size of the image is often insuf
ficient to bring out detail. To obtain
greater enlargement without dimin
ishing clearness too .much, magnify
Ing lenses are sometimes added.
"The preceding periscopes do not
enable a commander to take a rapid
survey of the horizon; it takes five to
ten seconds to make a complete circle.
Again, the observer must himself
move around with the eye-piece. If
the image is to remain upright with
out moving the eyepiece it is neces
sary to use a compensatory prism
whose movement makes up for that of

"To observe successively all points
of the horizon it suffices to turn the
crank, without Its being necessary
for either observer or eyepiece to
"Nevertheless, however rapid the
operation, it does not enable the ob
server to see the whole horizon at
once. This is realized in the perl
scope with ring-shaped eyepiece. At
the top of the tube is a ring-shaped
lens which refracts toward the base
of the tube rays that reach it from
all sides. A panoramic image is thus
obtained that includes all surround
ing objects, although they appear
smaller and more distant than with
the naked eye. The observer also

General Merritt's Career,
General Wesley Merrltt was born in
New YOrk city In 1836 and died in
1910. He was graduated from West
Point in 1860 and in 1861 assigned to a
cavalry regiment. In 1862 he acted as
aid to General Cooke. In 1863 he par
ticipated in Stoneman's famous raid
toward Richmond. In the battle of
Gettysburg and in the Richmond cam
paign of April-August, 1864, he com
manded a reserve cavalry brigade, and
in the Shenandoah valley campaign
and the final Richmond campaign he
commanded a cavalry division. By
the end of the war he had been made
major general of volunteers and
brevet major general In the regular
army. In 1876 he served In the Indian
campaigns In Wyoming and Dakota.
From 1882 to 1887 he was superintend
ent of the United States Military acad
emy, in 1887 be was made brigadier
general, in 1895 major general. In
1897-98 be commanded the department
of the East of the United States army,
and he was in command of the United
States forces In the Philippines In
1898. He was one of the United States
peace commissioners to Paris, and

the department of the East until he

riot Lunches In Country School.
University of Oregon, Eugene. Hot
lunches at noon In remote country
schools Is an educational innovation
that has been introduced into western
Lane county. In western Lane much
of the Bchool year is rainy, and young
sters, traveling long distances in all
sorts of weather, often wear wet
clothes a large part of the day.
School boards were accordingly ask
ed to provide cooking utensils, which
in many cases consist of only a large
kettle, a big spoon, a knife and a few
other bare 'necessities. The children
bring the articles to be cooked. Some
bring potatoes, some bring vegetables,
some bring meat, milk and other ar
ticles at different times. Each child
has his own bowl and the lunch con
sists usually of hot soup.
Each day two pupils are appointed
hosts for the following day. After
school at a meeting the kind of soup
desired for the following day is de
termined, and on the following day the
two hosts are allowed time from their
school work to prepare and cook the
soup on the big stove . in the corner
of the school room.
Formerly the children consumed
their cold lunch in perhaps ten min
utes; now lunch occupies about a
half hour and each pupil eats at his
own desk. Miss Jennie Bossen is
school supervisor in the district in
which this innovation has been made.

T FIERCE FIRE
How German Incendiary Bombs
Intended to Generate Sudden and In
tense Heat at the Point Where
They Are Dropped Noxious
Gas Also Liberated.
The Incendiary bombs which have
been dropped from Zeppelins upon
parts of France and England are
among the most Ingenious and perfect
ly devised destructive contrivances
that the war has brought out.
In the scores that have been dropped
from Germany's gigantic airships only
one so far has failed to explode and
this has been seized upon eagerly by
the English war officials for examina
tion. It differs from an ordinary explo
sive bomb inasmuch as it is Intended
not to scatter fragments over a wide
area, but to produce sudden and In
tense heat at a given point, thus start
ing a fierce conflagration.
The bomb, as a rule, 1b c. .'.cal, of
ten-Inch diameter at the base, corded
round, and has a metal handle at the
apex. The base is a flat cup, on to
which a pierced metal funnel is fitted,
having the Ignition device and handle
fitted at the top. The funnel is gener
ally filled with thermit, which upon
ignition generates Intense heat, and by
the time of the concussion has taken
the form of molten metal of the ex
traordinarily high temperature of over
6,000 degrees Fahrenheit'
The molten metal is spread by the
concussion. Outside the funnel is a
padding of a highly-inflammable or re
sinous material bound on with an in'
flammable form of rope. The resinous
material creates a pungent smoke,
There is generally some melted
white phosphorus in the bottom of the
cup, which develops nauseous fumes.
In some cases celluloid chipplngs are
added, and occasionally a small quan
tity of petrol.
Savings Banked in Teapots.
A considerable amount of gold Is be
ing hoarded by people who bank their
incomes and business takings and who
are anxious to be ready to meet emer
gency demands; but it is probable that
a much larger quantity is stored up in
rural parishes throughout the country.
The money, which is added to from
time to time, lies unproductive in the
house, concealed In wooden boxes un
der the bed, teapots, vases, or in tin
boxes. It was stated recently in a lo
cal paper in Devonshire that persons
who went about the country districts
knew instances of from $500 to $4,000
being kept in bedrooms In lonely farm
houses, the owners of these dead re
serves being In no way tempted by 6
per cent -bonds. It has, in fact, been
the custom in many families for the
family fortune, such as It Is, to be
handed to the heirs in cash.
In certain rustic minds there seems
to be not only a distrust of the bank
and post office, but an Ineradicable ob
jection to outside persons knowing
the state of their finances. It is not
yet realized that a practice which
may be comparatively innocuous in
time of peace is positively harmful in
time of war. London Times.
Dance to Drive Fog Away.
Tbe canyons and mountains back of
Incevllle, near Santa Monica, Cal., re
sounded at night with the beat of
tom-toms and the hillsides were light
ed by the bonfires of 100 Indians, who
spent the night praying In primitive
fashion to drive away the fog and
The chief of the tribe had been In
formed that if the fogs lasted much
longer, preventing the making of pic
tures for the movies, the Indians
would have to be sent back to their
reservation in South Dakota.
A council was called and it was de
cided to hold a "sunshine" or "weath
er" dance. W. E. Brooks, in charge of
the Indians, was so, notified and Mr.
Ince contributed an ox to be roasted
as part of the ceremony.
Two medicine men, Lone Bear, reput
ed to be more than one hundred years
old, and Good Voice Crow were In
charge of the ceremonies, in which all
the Indians took part. Bonfires were
lighted and the tomtoms were pound
ed on the top of a mountain back of
the motion picture camp. As the ox
roasted the dance continued. New
