Philip Schwarzbach
LIGHT, as a healer of ills, has been used by people throughout history. The early Egyptians and Romans took sun baths when they were suffering from disease, believing that it was the heat in the sunlight that helped them. Sun baths are still somewhat in vogue, but we know now that their stimulating effect is due to the chemical action of sunlight, not to its heat.

WHEN disease has taken firm hold on the breathing apparatus, it becomes necessary to aid nature by carrying germ-destroying agents directly to the seat of the trouble. In normal respiration, air invariably laden with germs and impurities is drawn into the lungs by the expansion of the chest, which causes diminution of the air pressure in the lungs.

THERE has been developed and patented by Guyon F. Greenwood, of Quebec, a metallurgical apparatus for the production of iron that avoids many of the disadvantages of the blast-furnace. The essential features are the reduction of iron oxide by means of carbon with the exclusion of air in an electric resistance furnace and at a temperature and pressure favoring the production of carbon monoxid, the latter being used as fuel in a gas engine generating electric energy utilized in heating the electric furnace.

STANDING on the seashore on a fine day, it is difficult to believe that a great storm is approaching from beyond the horizon: that in a few hours great waves will be racing in with a howling tempest of wind, breaking with almost irresistible force, flinging tons of water on high, and sweeping the shore in swirling masses of foam.

THE inventor of a new electric furnace has employed a principle that makes his device unique. A repelling arc is used. The layman can understand the principle by considering the electric arc light used to illuminate city streets. Here an electric current is caused to flow across an air-gap formed by two carbon electrodes.

IN order to do away with smoke from ships’ funnels, an Italian invented an apparatus consisting of a slightly conical doubled-walled shaft, placed in the lower part of the funnel. The space between the walls is divided into two compartments. Warm water from the condenser is conducted into the lower compartment, while the upper one is supplied with cold water furnished from a force-pump.

Even though it is not actually the ship’s fault a writ is nailed to her mast, a watehman is on board, and the ship is not allowed move until her debts are paid. The creditor must however, be sure of his case; if not, the ship’s owner may sue him for delay and loss of use.

WHEN a barograph is spoken of, most of us think only of a delicate little instrument that is used for recording altitude. A barograph is nothing but a recording barometer. Recent experiments have revealed that it is possible to use the barograph as an aid to commerce in the production of records of every form of travel by land and air, computing the average time consumed in any given journey, and tracing the movements of delicate and costly shipments.

THE issue of many legal cases turns on the authorship of a given sample of typewriting. Now, though by no means a hopeless task, the identification of typewriting affords incomparably greater difficulty than that of handwriting. According to Professor W. Scheffer, a microscopist who acts as legal expert in such cases, the first step is to ascertain the general type of writing—Roman, Gothic, italics, imitation of handwriting, etc.

It is very simple to understand that a flat surface, not too heavy, will offer a more effective resistance to water than the hand, and that a person would be propelled through the water with much greater speed by using these paddles.

YEARS ago, wind power was commercially possible. It simply had to be, since there were few other sources of power. Today we get most of our power from coal and a great amount from water. Palestine is not favored with either coal or water power, and Dr. I. M. Mayersohn is now studying the problem of wind power to determine whether or not it will be possible to run industries of Palestine with wind-motors. He has collected interesting data on wind motors in Europe.

TROLLEY-TRACKS are very much in the way. Hence the trackless trolleycar is now coming into use. The car gets its power from an overhead wire by means of the usual trolley-pole. The motorman must steer the car, as well as control the power and brakes.

ONE of the principal difficulties that confront an aviator is that of ascertaining his position and altitude when flying through or above clouds or in foggy weather. Another is to locate a flying-field and to land there in a fog. Since, in employing aircraft for business and mail-carrying, flying must go on in all weathers, means must be found for doing so in safety.

This system of locating an airplane is based upon the time taken for the sound of an explosion, set off by the pilot of the airplane, to reach the earth and rebound to the airplane. The altimeter now used merely indicates the height of the machine above sea-level.

WHEN you talk, you cause the air between your mouth and the ear of your hearer to pulsate. Like air, water can be made to pulsate. If you strike a bell on the water, the sound will travel much farther than in air. Hence, many ships are equipped with bells, which are sounded under water and which are much more efficient than fog-horns.

THE sun Betelgeuse is about 354,000,000,000,000,000 miles distant from the earth. A distance of one two hundred millionth of an inch has just been measured. Our imagination is helpless when faced with such tremendous figures. In the one case, man’s unit of measurement, the inch, is hopelesly large; in the other case its smallness makes it utterly insignificant.

What Is Your Running Alinement?
To reduce tire wear, measure the action of your automobile wheels
[no value]
[no value]
[no value]
WHEN automobile wheels are out of proper alinement, the result is excessive tire wear. Most corrective methods, however, have measured the alinement only when the wheel was stationary. This is not sufficient to reduce tire wear, because the tire does not wear when the wheel is stationary, and because the true or running alinement may vary considerably from the stationary alinement.

Q.—What have been the fundamental causes behind the growth in popularity of the wet and dry metal disk clutches in automobiles today as compared with the type used almost exclusively several years ago?— D. F. G., Reading, Pa. A.—The advantages of the multiple dii k type of automobile clutches as compared with the cone design may be briefly summed up as greater ease and smoothness of operation; less liability to get out of order; greater compactness and a reduced spinning tendency due to less inertia of the driven member due to lightness and small diameter.

It will instantly give the conventional standard sizes of standard wroughtiron pipe from ⅛-in. to 2½-in. inside diameter, these sizes being most commonly used.

THE average housewife does not like to open the door to book-agents, peddlers, or beggars. It is often a great convenience to know who is at the door. By the use of a little mirror arranged at an angle of 45 degrees outside the window, this is made possible in many cases. It all depends where the door is located. If it is at the side of the house, this mirror may be placed outside the kitchen window. Any one at the door will be plainly visible in the mirror, while the person on the inside cannot be seen from outside.
