Since then the skill of one man has
developed a method which bids fair
to add greatly to the margin of safe-

line. The Invention is a new application of prin-
ciples which have been employed for other pur-
poses for many years.
In 1908 the cruiser Yankee hit the Hen and

well-known salvage companies tackled the wreck,
but abandoned the work, declaring that It was

the usual way. These Innovators sealed upi the
hatchways leading to the various holds. 1 hen
they pumped compressed air Into the compart-
ments and the Bea was driven out again through
the rents by which It had entered. The ship was
thus made buoyant enough to be dragged from
the rocks. Unfortunately Bhe was run into and
sunk while being towed to harbor.
An entirely new problem then presented Itseir.
Instead of making use of cumbersome pontoons
and other external buoyant auxiliaries. Messrs^
Wotherspoon and King settled upon the plan of
turning the Yankee into her own salvage appara-
tus In other words, It was decided to utilize Hie
ship's own compartments as buoyancy chambers
bv draining them of the very water which had
carried the craft to the bottom.
You will probably declare offhand that there Is
nothing original in this; anybody knows that a
foundered vessel would rise If you could get the
water out of her. But don't be too hasty In your
conclusions The difficulty lies In the danger
that when the air has forced the water out, the
pressure of the overlying water will crush the
hull. How, then, did these young engineers guard
againBt this danger?

The Summer Silo.
The use of the silo throughout the
year is finding favor with many stock
keepers. It is quite difficult to obtain
a profit on pasture which Is on land
worth $100.00 or more per acre. Dur-
ing drouth seasons, the pasture is
often so poor that it affords little or no
feed, but the interest on the invest-
ment. and the taxes must be found.
There is no question but what the use
of the silo for summer feeding will
make rapid gains during the next few
years and will soon come into common
use The millions of tons of corn
stalks and rough forage which are
now annually going to waste will And
use in the form of silage and will

Toasties are a jolly good
out under the Impulse of compressed air and they
balanced the contending forces so nicely that the
ship's structure was substantially a neutral divi-
sion between them, the air pressure being just
a trifle In excess of the pressure of the water
which it forced outward from the buoyancy com-
partments. Do you realize the engineering cun-
ning Involved here? The compressed air actually
constituted a stronger support for the burdened
deck than the water which had previously filled
the underlying space! As the cruiser rose to
the surface the pressure was progressively re^
duced so that it Just maintained an excess of
force against the exterior water
This method of floating the Yankee suggested
to Mr. Wothers;^&ii a medium by which the
structure of a vessel not yet sunk could be utiliz-
ed to keep her afloat when otherwise inrushing
water would certainly carry her to the bottom.
Mr Wotherspoon's first adaptation of this sys-
tem was for naval purposes, to provide means by
which an Injured ship of war could survive the
under water attack of either torpedoes or sub-
marine mines, and probably be kept on an even
keel so that she could still fire her guns effec-
tively against an enemy.
From the keel of a fighting ship up to a height
of several feet above the water line It Is the prac-
tice to subdivide her as far as possible into a
large number of separate water-tight compart-
ments. the Idea, of course, being to confine the
area of injury. By making use of these compart-
ments Mr. Wotherspoon's invention has robbed
the under water weapons of much of their terror;
It has reduced the dangers incident to hitting an
uncharted rock; and it furnishes the commanding
officer of a battle craft with a means by which
he can assure himself at any time that his ship
Is structurally sound.
■Hie naval constructor is a miser when it comes
to apportioning pounds of a ship's displacement
for auxiliary features. This attitude Is really ex-
cusable because stray pounds here and stray
pounds there very soon reach the aggregate dig-
nity of tons When Mr. Wotherspoon submitted
his proposition to the navy department the offi-
cials there grudgingly allowed him a very small
total weight within which he was to make his
system applicable to two-thirds of the 1.200 water-
tight compartments of one of our armored cruis-
On the face of it the prospect did not look en-
couraging, but It was right here that Mr. Wother-
spoon's ingenuity met the difficulty. He chose to
make use of existing facilities already provided
for other purposes. This resourcefulness on his
part enabled him. when his work of installation
was finished, to surrender to the navy depart-
ment a large percentage of the weight allowance
originally granted htm.
Take an empty tumbler, turn It bottom upward
and press it down Into a basin of water. The
further you submerge It the smaller grows the air
space the air becoming more and more com-
pressed. If you could slightly Increase the pres-
sure of the confined air the encroaching water
would be driven outward. If the bottom of the
tumbler were pierced, on the other hand, the
air would escape and the water would riBe and fill
the space. Substitute a pipe Instead of a free
opening in the bottom of the glass and lead this
pipe to a reservoir of compressed air. When this
compressed air Is poured into the tumbler the
water will be driven out or the glass will rise and
free Itself of water. In either case then the space
will be filled with air
This is substantially what Mr. Wotherspoon
has planned shall happen when a ship's compart-
ment or compartments are flooded through under
water damage of any sort. Air will displace the
water due to leakage and make the craft float
well nigh as if she had not been Injured Of
course this is upon the assumption that the
wound has occurred at the bottom and not the
top of a watertight subdivision; otherwise the
chamber will remain flooded.
But It takes a good deal of air to fill most of
the big divisions of a fighting ship, and there
must be piping to carry the air to these hundreds
of separate chambers. How did Mr. Wother-
spoon provide for all these and yet not exceed the
weight allowed him by the naval officials? He
did it by making use of facilities actually already
provdled for other services
Foul air, gases and heat beyond a fixed degree
must be guarded against In a man-of-war within
the various under water compartments. To ac-
complish this end two pipes lead to each of these
chambers, one to carry fresh air and the other
to drain off the foul. Also every fighting ship is
furnished with air compressors and there are a
number of tanks In which this air is stored at
a very high pressure. Normally this air is for the
charging of the torpedoes, for some kind of me-
chanical work and for blowing the residual gases
and'-bits of smoldering remnants of the "powder
bags out of the big guns before the breeches
are opened for reloading. The very fundamentals
of Mr. Wotherspoon's system were thus already
Installed and a few Inexpensive connections alone
were needful to complete his requirements. All
that was necessary was to tap the air supply sys-
tem by flexible hose and join the connection to
the supply duct leading to any desired compart-
ment, at the same time closing the exhaust vent.
Thus compressed air under perfect control could
be led into the flooded chamber and the water

Under Coat of London Soot
America was discovered all over again in I^on-
don recently, says the Washington Stars corre-
spondent. At least a long-hidden statue of Amer-
ica was. Tt Is really no use putting up a statue
or any other kind of memorial In London, for In
a year or two unless seen to right along, it will
be practically enveloped in a pitch black cloak
of London soot, some 6,000 tons of which, accord-
ing to an engineer's recent estimate, is always
hanging in the atmosphere of this metropolis.
The statue of "America" which has Just been
discovered adorns the front of the Cannon street
hotel, which adjoins one of the biggest of Lon-
don's railway stations and Is a favorite place for
big political and other gatherings. It was put
up In 1866, since when Its walls have not been
cleaned, hence for forty years or more all of the
rather elaborate decorations which cover them
have been hidden from Bight as completely as If
they never had existed. The pall of mingled soot
and grime which covers them several inches deep
in places, but It fall off almost at a touch, and
after what is known as "wire brushing" the sur-
face becomes fairly clean.
Four statues, it appears, representing the four
continents, besides some balustra«1ing and arch-
ing with decorative panels, compose the long-
shrouded facade of the Cannon Street hotel. Of
these statues, two, Kurope and Asia, have now
been brought completely to light. America has
Just been located and partly unveiled, and Africa,
appropriately enough, is still the "dark conti-
nent. Hearing of the discovery of America In
Cannon street, the writer hastened to the spot,
and after mounting to dizzy heights, by means of
a ladder, and crawling along a stone ledge some
eighty feet above the level of the. ground, was
rewarded with a sight of the partly exhumed
statue, which standB some fifteen or sixteen feel

THE KNOW HOW
To Feed Children and Get Good Re
There are more nervous persons
made BO by undigested food lying in
the Btomach than the average ludl-
vidual would suppose.
If food remains undigested In the
stomach, it begins to ferment, set up
gas and a largo portion is thus con-
verted into poison.
That's why Imperfectly digested food |
may, and often does, cause irritation
of the nerves and stupor of the mind— :
bruin and nerves are really poisoned. |
"My daughter had complained for
some time of a distressed feeling in
the stomach, after eating, which set
me thinking that her diet was not
right," writes an anxious and intelli-

had never tried Grape Nuts I'rom
reading the account of this predigest-
ed food, it Beemed reasonable to try
Grape-NutB for her case.
"The results were really wonderful.

unable to do its work, took on new
life and vigor. Every morning, now,
before going to school, she eats the
