Wave Motor In Lighthouse.
la. they ali made use of plungers
wllch, by rising and falling with the
waves would Impart their power to a
wheel, but no practicable machine was
ever built, and people came to the con
elusion that the problem was Impos-
sible of solution. But engineers who
have tested the wave motors invented
by William Snee of Pittsburg, Pa.,
state that these motors will do the
work for which they are Intended.
Models of various sizes have been
made and the experiments have proved
such an unqualified success that twe
61-ton motors have been installed at
the end of Young's pier at Atlantic
City, and the power obtained will be
utilized to make the pier and beach
one great blaze of light.
The wave motor seems to be an
amphibious machine, for it works as
well on the land as it does in the wa
le This feature was tested recently
at Pittsburg and the motor proved it
self to be 20 per cent, more sensitive
to the currents of the air than the
anemometer, the same principle that
harmonizes the conflicting forces ol
water within the outside wheel liar
monizing likewise conflicting forces ol
wind. Furthermore, in contrast with
the fan tail windmill, there need be ni
fear of destruction or injury, no mat
ter how great the velocity of the wind
This discovery naturally suggested
the idea of using both the wind and
wave motors in government light
houses, the matter was brought to tht
attention of the government officials
and an investigation is being made.

Professor Clias. X. Gould, state
geologist and director of .the Okla-
homa geologic survey, has made the
statement that after examining the
pavement in a number of large east-
ern cities he believes that Ardmore's
streets which have been paved with
Oklahoma rock asphalt are the best
in America. Dr. Gould says that
there is enough asphalt in Oklahoma
to build a road both east and west
and also north and south through
every county in the state and have
enough left to pave every city in the
Strange Formation in Wheeler Na-
bring to public notice a great natural
attraction which it is believed is des-
tined to rival the Yellowstone National
park, the Royal Gorge in the Grand
canyon of the Arkansas, and the
Natural Bridges of Utah.
The tract included by the proclama-
tion is situated on the south slope and
near the summit of the Continental
divide at an elevation of approximate-
ly 11,500 feet above sea-level, about
eight miles from Wagon Wheel Gap,
Col., a famous hot springs resort of
the Rocky mountains. Innumerable
columns of pale yellow sandstone, as-
suming the shapes of castles and
domes, as well as countless grotesque
figures, present a pinnacled and ser-
rated panoramic view unlike anything
else in the geological world.
This new park is to be known as the
Wheeler National monument in honor
of Lieut. Wheeler, an early explorer in
this section. The president derives
his authority for this edict under the
act of congress atmroved June 8, 1906,

While a minor, young Hunter is said
to have some property in his own
