A novelty In the wuy of diving ap

a prominent tiydrvgraphic eiitflui-er ot
t'arla, la shown lu the acrompauylng
llliiatratloii.' The cut shows the divluj
suit wltb the helmet and one arm-plei-e
reiimveit. M. I)e I'luvy use a
metallic diving suit which Is made
somewhat on the plan of the aucleut
coat-of aruia, being built of light and
strong sheet nietul having a thlckneaa
varying from 0.2 to 0.3 Inch according
to tbe position of the plect-a. On tbe
top of the armor la fixed the helmet,
which la the principal feature of tlia
apparatus. The air la not brought to
the diver from the outside, as usual,
but the air be breathes Is sent by s
Aaloaiatla Wiin Braha.
A wagon bruk which operate au
tomatically baa been recently patenteil
by a MlaNlaali man. The ordinary ar
rangement of attaching a foot lever be
neath the driver's seat, connecting with
the brake, Is entirely dispensed with.
The driver 'a uot required to haudle
the brake In any way, the simple halt
ing of the homes only being necessary.
Aa shown in the lllust rutlou, the brake
la pivoted so as to come In contact
with the rim of the rear wheel. On
the extreme outer lid of the shafts Is
s vertical pivoted lever, one end of
which connect with a rod titoaJIci
to the brake. The upper end of this
lever is connected by a strap or chain
to the harneas on the horse. As shown.

tube Into a special regenerating cham
ber containing certain chemical pro
ducts which renew tho supply of oxy
gen and the air Is then sent to the
interior of the helmet by another tube.
Tbe air-renewing apparatus Is con
tained In a pair of cylindrical cham
bers attached to each aide of the hel
met. Regulating valves keep the air
pressure within the helmet at the right
amount snd always constant, no mat
ter what the depth may be below the
surface. Mounting and descending
are effected by a drum and cable
worked by an electric motor. At the
same time tbe cable serve to carry
tbe current which Is needed for the
respliatory apparatus. The diver
communicates with the surface by a
telephone, and a number of wires run
from tbe armor up to a set of colored
lamps, showing bow the different
parts are working. M. de Pluvy has
personally been able to go down to a
great depth, and during the 113 de
scents which he has already made
with the new diving ault he reached
depths varying from 160 to 300 feet.
This far exceeds the depth to which
an ordinary diver can go.

Effect of Maat-laavaetloa Law,
In an address delivered before the
New York State Breeders' Association,
at Syracuse, G. P. McCabe, of the
United States Department of Agricul
ture, discussed the principal provisions
of the United State meat-Inspection
law, the mauner In which the provi
sions are enforced, and the bearing of
the law Umiii tbe production and han
dling of meats.
To secure the best results, the
breeders snd feeders of every State In
the Union should take up vigorously
the question of the extension of mar
kets and should back the Department
of Agriculture in an Inaistend demand
for an absolutely efficient, vlgllaut.
fair and square meat Inspection.
If a due regard le had for clean
lines, decency and honesty In the pre
paration and marketing of our meat
products, the United States will con
tlnue to lead tbe world In the live
stock and meat trade."

The bureau of statistics recently sent
out s mieelal Inquiry circular to ascer
tain the cost of hauling farm crops to
shipping points, snd tlie compiled re
sults representing replies from nearly
2.0110 counties In different parts of the
United States Indicate that the qnsn
tlty of farm produce annually hauled
amotinta to 40.fsrsi.000 tons. The cost
of hauling the same Is estimated st ap
proximately 1-So.000.0ti0. which Is an
average of 8V4 cuts per hundred
In genersl. tbe hauling cost Is to s
large extent dependent upon tbe value
of the article hauled, the more vsln-
shle products taken to market oftener
snd In simsller loads, snd therefore st
a greater cost Corn, wheat hay and
potatoes are hauled st from 7 to 0
cents per 100 pounds : tobacco and hogs
st 10 cents per 100 pounds; cotton, 111
cents, and wool, 44 cents.

the outer edge gets too high, stop tie
fore you get there, snd go back to th

keep the center highest, wltb a goot

to the center and work out, and

The sparrow hawk almost invariably

exactly swoop like the larger hawks,
yet It must have conditions of chaso

That Immutable law of physics that
matter cannot be annihilated, or, vie
versa, created out of nothing, apiears
to have some doubters even iu this day
of general education. The old query,
which weighs the mewt, the egg or tli
chicken that Is hatched from the egg, la
a very good example of this lack of
faith. To settle the matter for the
hundredth time, expcrlmenta were re
cently undertaken at one of the agri
cultural stations engaged In Miultry
studies. It was found that a fertll
egg during the procen of Incubation
lost a little over 2( kt cent tn weight,
while the chick batched from such art
egg weighed 30 per cent less than thw
egg before Incubation. A sterile rg-ar
