The Money Making Scheme of a Remark
able Milwaukee Genius.
1 liad a large cork and bung fac
tory in Grand avenue, and I needed
power to run my machinery. You
know, of course, tbat there is un im
mense amount of stored up electric
ity in a cat. The problem for in
ventors has been to invent a way to
extract it profitably. Iu the rear of
my factory I constructed a 1-story
chcular building, some 60 feet in di
ameter. On the floor of this I coiled
a glass pipe G inches in diameter.
The first coil ran around the out
side of the room, tho coils gradually
growing smaller till tho last, in tho
center, was no larger than this table.
It gave mo something like a mile of
pipe. Tho top and sides of this pipe
were lined with rather stiff hair
brushes, the bristles being a little
more than an inch in length.
At that time Milwaukee was over
run with cats. It was impossiblo to
sleep nights. I put a notice in the
paper that I would pay 10 cents a
dozen for prime cats delivered at my
factory. I got CO dozen the first day
and stored them in the basement of
the power house. The motor op
Placing in tho outer end of the
glass pipe an imitation rat made of
rubber and propelled by a small in
terior storage battery, I would then
adjust a cat immediately behind it.
The rubber rat would start off at a
terrific rate it was made to go
through tho mile of tubing in from
two to three minutes and the cat
of course followed furiously, think
ing to catch tho supposed animal
throughout the entire distance.
Gentlemen, it was exciting to watch
a healthy, active cat whip about
those spirals, with the mechanical
rat about a foot ahead and going
like a cannon ball. The cat's back
and sides rubbed against the brushes,
and her electricity was thus ex
tracted. With a storage battery and
by sending a cat through every five
minutes I generated enough elec
tricity to operate my entire plant,
light my factory and sell power to
run neighboring passenger elevators
and small machinery.
It also took tho yowl out of tho
cats, and gradually the city became
quiet At tho end of a week a cat
could be caught and used again. In
terview in Harper's Weekly.
Agriculture In "Wyoming.
Hay is a chief crop in Wyoming.
Wheat and other cereals are vory
important. Of these moro aro raised
every year. In some instances thoy
have made extraordinary yields. Po
tatoes are of a very good quality, and
a promising industry is that of rais
ing sugar beets. Tho climate and
soil aro very favorable to their
growth, and they product) an unusual
percentage of starch and sugar. It
is. however, true that Wyoming's
agneultural progress has been slow.
There has hitherto been invested
$10,000,000 in irrigating ditches with
a length of about 8,000 miles and
commanding 2,000,000 acres of the
best lands in the state.
These ditches wero most of them
planned and started while tho cattle
business was at its height. When it
collapsed in 1885, a large proportion
had to be abandoned from want of
capital. Again, many miles of ditch
ing wore built by stockmen not for
irrigation, but to got titles to pasture
lands. Others were built to get con
trol of water rights and with no in
tention of immediate uso. Thus of
all the land under ditches at the pres
ent timo only about 10 per cent can
be irrigated, and only 1 per cent is
actively cultivated. New York Sun.
A Submerged Continent.
Dr. Bowdier Sharpe suggested in a
lecture on the geographical distribu
tion of birds before tho Royal insti
tution in London that thero was onco
a great continent with its center at
the south polo, now submerged
under 2,000 fathoms of ocean. It
embraced, ho said, South America,
Madagascar, Mauritius, New Zealand
and Australia, and thus is explained
tho existence of tho cognate strn

existed, in those countries. Phila

Opinions of the Message. ,
Washington, Aug. 0. The message
of tho president was received by con
gress with a degree of attention and
earnestness that has seldom been ac
corded to a state paper. A i otable fact
was tho general absence of adverse criti
cism from a party point of view and
among .hose who have reserved the ex
pression of their Judgment, Democrats
quite as numerous as Republicans.

clear out statement of the president's
views. All the commeut tbat I have
heard In the senate Is that It Is as terse
and clear a statement as could have
Bonator Alllsou remarked: "It lea

the tariff references of the president
calculated to disturb business further
