A REMARKABLE ELECTRIC PLANT. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 25 January 1902

j A REMARKABLE ELECTRIC PLANT. The most remarkable electric plant in the world, exceeding even that of Niagara Falls, has just been completed in the interior of Cali fornia, 200 miles from San Francisco. Its water wheels and generators are the largest ever built, while the electricity is carricd further before its use than such power has ever been carried before. To get the elec tricity to its destination, the conducting cables had to cross a strait about a mile wide, where there is at all times a heavy and dangerous current, so that it was impossible for the cable to be laid under the water. The engineers, therefore, determined to build a great suspension bridge consisting of four cables. Two slender steel towers were reared on the land at opposite sides of the strait, the Government stipulating that the cables should be at least 200 feet above the surface of the water, for the peak of the highest mast of the largest vessel of the American merchant marine is 194 feet above waterlin...

FORTY DAYS ON A ROCK. ! SUBVIVOBS OF SHIPWRECK LIVE ON SEAWEED AND MUSSELS. ! A terrible tale of the sea Is told by the three | survivors of the crew of the ship Glencaird, who i recently arrived at Southampton, England. i The Glencaird sailed from South Shields for < San Francisco on May 18 last, with a general ' cargo and a crew of 31 hands. i After crossing the Equator she encountered fearful weather, and wee eventually driven ashore at the eouth-east end of Staten Island. The huge seas swept everything from the decks, and man after man was washed Into the surging sea, some being dashed to death on the rocka in sight of their mates. The only hope of escape to those left lay in getting along the boom, which overlapped a rock, and although several attempted this all but three failed. The Glencaird soon broke up, and those who remained on board perished. The three men who had reached the rock found themselves In a hopeless plight. They had no clothing, were weak and exhau...

REMARKABLE SURGICAL OPERATION. IDIOCY CURED. ) An interesting and remarkably successful oper ) ation has been performed by a noted New York ) surgeon, Dr. Gottlieb Sternberg, who by means ? of a trephining saw haa given the full use of his ( faculties to a boy who had been an idiot since ( birth. "The boy," said Dr. Sternberg, "is 13 ( years old. He was quite insane. There was a ( lack of co-ordination in his muscular movements, ( no. concentration of mind, and his eyes weie not ( responsive to any light of intelligence. ( "I found a considerable depression on the left c side of the top of the skull, which showed a f great contrast to that of the right side. I came to / the conclusion that the boy's mental condition ) was the result of an undue pressure on the left ) side of the brain.

As is well known, an affliction of the S left side of the brain affects the limbs on the ) opposite side o...

TEMPERATURE OF THE SUN. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902

( ) TEMPERATURE OF THE SUN. A new determination of the mean temperature of the sun has been communicated to the Royal Society of Great Britain by Professor Wilson, F.R.S. His estimate of the mean temperature, based on a number of distinct observations which Rave very nearly identical results, is 6200 degrees Centigrade. If the probable absorption of the sun's ra diated heat by its own atmosphere be allowed for. the mean temperature of the sun's body may be put down at 6608 degrees Centigrade. These calculations, and the method of arriving at them, were made with a meticulous care that reminds one of the two years' long experi ments which enabled Professor C. B. Boys to add another figure to the row of decimals in the gravity symbol "g." A beam of sunlight was sent horizontally into the laboratory by means of a Stoney single-mir ror heliostat. The beam was directed into one aperture of a Boys' differential radio-micro meter—which measures radiated heat by ad justing the effeft of it ...

Blood Thicker than Water. THE FRIENDSHIP OF ENGLAND AND AMERICA. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902

Blood Thicker than Water. THE FRIENDSHIP OF ENGLAND AND AMERICA. —♦— "Senator Chauncey Depew states that there is no alliance between the United States and Great Britain, but an under- standing that in the event of trouble America will not aid England's enemies in any act in any part of the world. "The New York correspondent of the 'Daily Chronicle' states that Great Britain avowed her intention to use other means than those of diplomacy in order to pre- vent a coalition against the United States at the time of the Spanish-American war. Immediately Great Britain's avowed in- tention became known, Russia deserted France, and declared that her sympathy was with America." The last cable gives the key to the whole situation. Had not Great Britain led the other Powers plainly to understand that their policy in the Spanish-American war must be "hands off," there is no doubt that Continental sympathy, soldiers, and money, COUSIN JONATHAN (Loquaciously) They reckon, Johnny Bull, That they'l...

Nothing Serious. BY "ANYBODY." [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902

Nothing Serious. BY "ANYBODY."   The Parisian papers recently made a fuss about a young plumber who "dropped" suddenly into fame from the roof of a six-storey house in the Rue du Renard. Those who witnessed the fall rushed into the court-yard expecting to find a mangled corpse. To their astonishment, Georgia—that was the plumber's name—was already on his feet, feel- ing himself all over, much as a dealer does a horse before purchase. "Arn't you dead?" they exclaimed. He said he was not. Thereupon they hurried him to an adjacent bar, gave him a cordial (which, being interpreted, means a strong liqueur); after swal- lowing which, and again making absolutely sure that he was quite alive, he exclaimed: "Well, this beats all. I'm a regular death-deceiver." The height from which the man fell was 90ft. This calls to mind the adventure of three young men at Dawes' Point. They—a com- mercial man, a sailor man, and a journalist— occupied a room, the balcony from which over- looke...

Flats for the Affluent. A HOME FOR MILLIONAIRES. [Newspaper Article] — The World's News — 1 February 1902

Flats for the Affluent. A HOME FOR MILLIONAIRES. —♦— The increase in the size and rent of large buildings to be let out in flats in great cities has of late been beyond all precedent; but it can in no way compare with the strides in this direction which have been and are being made in America. On this page we give an illustration of the "Ansonia," which is be- ing built in New York at a cost of £1,000,000. It will contain no fewer than 18,000 rooms, and the various flats will be let out at rents ranging from £400 to £4000 a year. In a word, they will be the most expensive dwellings of their class in the world, and only millionaires need apply for them. The preference for flats or apartments even at increased rent- als is due, doubtless, to the perfection of ar- rangements of the suites and their greater con- venience for purposes of housekeeping. Every room and hall space to be found in the finest dwellings is duplicated in these apartments, with the important ex- ception of the sta...
