improvement Senator-elect Harris
is spoken of by opposition papers
in the highest terms, as a man of
culture, energy and talents, far su
perior to Senator Peffer. In his
fl jction, it is quite evident that the
state has cunt aside its wilrl-evwl
slate has cast aside its w Ud-eyed,
mg-moutued, rattled-Drained lead'
ers, and has seen the wisdom of
sending to congress a man of

k. Unique Farm In New York for
Cvarrtklac Imp far b Cw
In the heart tot New York state, be
yond the reach of the merely curious,
yet open to all of a scientific turn of
mind, is the only Inventors' farm in the
world. There to doubtless no stranger
plat anywhere, for H to a farm where
balloons are "rataed," aerial schemes are
hutched md air ships are born.
So far as the place at Frankfort,
Herkimer county, N. Y., to surrounded
by fields and proves which give no siur-
B ration of city life, it is a farm, but its
products are those of which the or
dinary Jaarmer knows nothing. For
these products are Dying machines, bal
loons, stranpe ships that in theory at
leastdart through the air or skim the
ground like a bird.
Prof. Carl E. Myers, who has estab
lished the unique farm, is like most
men of purely scientific mind in thatbe
most conservative in his ideaa of
publicity, and is content to live in the
j midst 01 wondere with hi assistants
" 1 " "me, are
associ,, if , jnventorhas
an idea that he will be able to overcome
the forces of nature and construct a
mechanical bird, it will no longer be nec
essary for him to spend fortunes to
work, out has ideas or die without ao
eomplishinjr his life's object. All he
needs to do will be to go to the inven
tors' farm and find there willing hamls
una rruitiui Drains, as well as all an
pliances of this electrical age to assist
Almost in the center of the big firm
s a modern country house, standing
.mid many smaller buildings, in which
.re to be found the materials for every
form of experiment connected with
aeronautics. The lower portion, of the
'arge house to given over to living
rooms, while a third story and attic ex
tending the length of the building and
occupied By balloon apparatus, acces
sories and wonderful devices for the
'onstmction of air ships.
The farm was especially selected for
its natural advantages. Them are
stretches of level ground, gently ris
ing slopes and strong declivities. Thus
it does not matterat what stage of work
the inventions may la', a suitable grade
can always be found on the furm at
which trials can be made. If it be an
air ship that hns been constructed
where there is a doubt as to the exget
nature of its workings, it con be tested
mi the slight grades, so that there will
be as slight a risk as possible to human
life or to the ship.
Close to the main house, in a glen, is
situated one of the most important fea
tures of the farm. This is the spot de
signed for the making of fabric for all
manner of fiyingmoehinesand balloons,
tin this half acre of ground, which is
skirted by the higher ground and trees,
the fabric is suvU'hed to receive the
coatings of gasproof varnish. For this I
application of varniuhB special machine
has beeu invented and constructed by
Prof. Myers, so contrived as to supply
u complete coating of thick varnish and
u.en to remove the coating with the ex
ception of au exceedingly delicate film,
dinicult to he-measured bv instruments.
One section of the attic of the big
house is a workshop containing all tools
necessary for the construction of an
tral us from wood, metal or textile, in-lulling-
lathes of various and oritrinal
designs, steam engines, all classes of
lod-worKing machinery and kindred
apparatus for making comparative
tests. 5 his is the section in which is
constructed the material for the full-
siaed machines of the air after working
models have been tested. Another sec
tion of the attic is given over to space
and machinery for the construction of
models especially of kites, aeroplanes,
wind-borne or self,propelled motors,
winged apparatus worked by hand and
feet, gas vessels propelled by screws or
serving to suport other devices for
safe trial by their inventors.
In the little buildings scattered over
the farm are located t he gas engines and
temks for practical experiments, the
chemical chambers and several furnaces
and retorts. Some of these last ore so
strange and unusual that their ap
pearance suggests the laboratory of yomc
oiu-ume alchemist rather than a . iix,-
teenth century workshop. 8. X. Her
That the beat attainment are not the
result of chance was exemplified in the
discovery of the planet .Neptune, the
fiftieth anniversary of which event was
recently celebrated in trance. Tele
scope bad long- awept the aky without
diacovering tbia ahy outer planet ; but
when aatronomera noticed how Uranus
hastened In one part of it orbit and
moved with leas rnpidiay in another,
they knew there must be an attracting
body that held him in check. Ijever
rier, therefore, after minute calcula
tions, wrote to the astronomer of the
IH-rlin observatory, renucstini? him to
lioint his telescope to a particular nixrt
i. .ire jr im an evening- indicated, and
sam: -iou will sec a planet which I
have not seen, and which no humane ve

must be on the spot." No one would
venture to can it discovery that night

As to the age of the Niagara falls,
geologists differ widely in opinion. At
first it was estimated that the Niagara
river came into existence through
changes in the level of the land around
the great lakes, about S5.000 years ago.
Later thin was reduced to only 12,000
year. The celebrated geologist Sir
Charles f,v-ell, increased the estimate
again to 3u,000 ytars; but more recent
ly others have lowered it to about 9,000
years. The latent estimate is that of

most world-w ide fame of all the men of
letters native to that town, and Poems
connected with Boston not alone by the
important accident of his birth, but
by the commencement there of his lit
erary career, itaelf an event worth com
memoraiing. So far as I am aware,
Boston never awarded to Poe the honor
which, in the case of her dead literary
men of eminence, she sometimes deemn
worthy to be taken in lieu of any fur-
ther monumental .attention, namely, :
the calling of a public meeting by tin '
mayor, at which addresses are made 'J(i
