THE WHEELING BUCK.
There is the "wheeling buck" or pitch.
The broncho leaps into the air and when he

facing in an opposite direction. Itis a kind
of a leap where the horse goes up "head"
and comes down "tail." They rear and
pitch in every way. They may fall on
their side or back and roll over. Some
times the broncho will get his hips so high
he will come down on his head. The tail
will crack, and the rider, if an expert, will
slip his leg over the horse's neck and get
out of the way. There are many terms used
to express the various combinations of the
curves and gyrations of the broncho when

pay much now. Various schemes were re
sorted to to catch wild horses. Their ranges
are larce circles which are often many
miles. Belays of horses have been used to
attempt to run them down. Another plan
was to follow them at a distance to accustom
them to the sight and presence of men, and
by continually following them, tire them so
thev cannot make a good run. Others
think the better plan is to kill the stallion.

shown by his returning, when he thinks the

SCIENTIFIC AND INDUSTEIAL NOTES
rrBETJLBED FOR TBI DISPATCU.l
Headers of The Dispatch who desire
information on subjects relating to indus
trial development and progress in mechani
cal, civil and electrical engineering and the
sciences can have their queries answered
through this column.
Dr. Atwater, in the paper read bv him be
fore the last convention of the American
Public Health Association, dwelt on the
evils of overeating, and showed that in this
country people over-eat enormously, especi
ally in the matter of meat and sweetmeats,,
with the result of undermining their health
to a great degree. Dr. Jerome Walker gave
facts to prore that meat once a day was
enough for any ordinary person. Dr. At
kinson showed the importance of better cook
ing for the masses. He considered that a
great obstruction to improvement in the art
of cooking is the almost universal miscon
ception that the finer cuts of meat are more
nutritions than the coarser portions, coupled
with an almost insuperable prejudice
among working people against stewed food.
This prejudice is doubtless due to
the tasteless quality of boiled meat;
boiling toughens each of the fine fibers, and
deprives the meat almost wholly of its dis
tinctive flavor. All these blunders and
misconceptions mnst evidently be removed
before any true art of cooking can become
common practice. The more necessary,
however, does it become to invent apparatus
in which meat can only be simmered and
cannot boil, as in the Aladdin cooker, and
also to invent a stove or oven in which
neither meat nor bread can be overcooked,
dried up, or rendered indigestible by too
much heat, as in the Aladdin oven. Next,
people must be persuaded that a better and
more nntritious breakfast can be made
ready to eat, as soon as the family are out of
oed, Dy putting meat stews, oatmeal, brown
bread and many Kinds of pudding into the
cooker, and simmering all night by the use
of a single safe lamp, than in any other way.
An Expert Opinion of Fuel Gas.
George Westinghonse, Jr., in a recent ar
ticle, says that in Europe, where very care
ful investigations have been made, innu
merable devices of more or less merit involv
ing the economy of fuel gas have been
adopted. It is known to a fraction of a foot
how many cubic feet of gas are needed to
broil a steak, to cook a bunch of asparagus,
to boil a cabbage and to roast a pound of
beef. The present cost of manufactured gas
is largely due to the great percentage of
leakage, which in New York is supposed to
be about 25 per cent, and the comparatively
small quantity of gas transported for an av
erage of 20 hours per day. When a large
quantity of gas comes to b'e used lor heating
during all hours there will be no special.
need lor a better process ot manufacturing
gas than the present for the greatly in
creased consumption will lessen the price,
and that, in connection with economical ap
pliances, will bring what is really a great
luxury within the reach of all classes. The
importance of the manufacture of a cheap
fuel gas, however, is more lully recognized
now than ever before, and there are hun
dreds of gas engineers to-day working on the

The Diamond market
The discovery of the South African dia
mond mines about 20 years ago created a
complete revolution in the trade. The large
production ot these gems has necessarily
had an effect in depreciating prices, and
there have been considerable fluctuations
from time to time, hut a combination of the
several mining interests has now been
formed, with a capital of $12,000,000, and
the production will now be limited to meet
ing the current demand and maintaining
prices. The public has an impression that
the Cape diamonds are. usually of a yellow
tinge, but this is not so, as an examination
of the large collection of diamonds shown in
the S&uth African pavilion at the Paris Ex
position will prove. There are stones, it is
true, of various shades of yellow, and the
deep orange tint that is so highly prized by
collectors lor its raniy. -me uape uia
monds, as a rnle, are less colored than those
ot India and Brazil. The diamonds ob
tained from the mine of Jagerfonstein, in
theOracge Free State, are remarkable for
their whiteness verging to blue.
Relative Colt of Water and Steam Power.
A thorough examination into the relative
cost of water power and steam power has
been made by C. H. Manning, in a paper
read before the last session of the American
Society of Mechanical Engineers. After
making elaborate calculations as to the
practical additions and abatements required
in pntting both to use, the author snms np
the cost in each case, and says: "In the
water-power plant we paid $11 for the cost
of the water, simply, per horse power per
annum; adding to this $8 62 for attendance
and supplies, we have a total cost of water
power of S22 62 per horse power per an
num." Taking for steam a low-pressure
plant of 1,100 horse power, with compound
engines run on one and three-quarters
pounds of coal per horse power, with coal
at $4 50 per ton, the total cost lor steam is
given at $21 16 per horse power per annum.
"On a 1,000 horse-power plant," says Mr.
Manning, "the difference in cost saves an
Iced Flih Dangeron.
The Lancet contains a warning against
the use of iced fish. Ice spoils the fresh
ness, firmness and flavor of fish by render
ing it, prior to putrefaction, insipid, soft
and flabby. Where fish is preserved on ice
it appears that the ice only favors putrefac
tion by furnishing a constant snpply of
moisture, carrying with it the putrefactive
bacteria derived from its unclean surround
ings, so that this iced fish remains covered
with fresh solutions of filth pregnant with
putretactlve bacteria. Ua the other hand,
keeping fish dry and cold can in no wav
favor putrefaction. It is stated that 70
difierent kinds of food fishes, on being eaten
within a few honrs of their death, give rise
to poisonous symptoms, and it is said to be
the intention of the Russian Government to
ofier a prize of $2,500 for the best essay
upon tbe nature and enre of fish poisoning.
New White Lead Frocess.
Mr. Hannay, the inventor of the new pro
cess for the manufacture of white lead, has
given a description of it before the British
Association. The condensed material which
he produces is extremely fine, firm and of
great covering power. The advantages of
this process are that the white lead is made
in a day, instead of the three months of the
Dutch process; that it starts with the ore,
and not with the purified metal; that it is
obtained in a fine powder instead of a hard
crust, which has to be gronnd; and, most
important of all, there is hardly any danger
for the workmen.

Ottolenghi, in Turin, fonnd last year a less
acute sense of smell In criminals, and he
now makes a similar affirmation with regard
to taste after tests consisting, of the appli
cation ot bitter and sweet substances
(strychnine and saccharine) in dilute solu
tion to the tongue. He finds also the taste
of the habitual criminal less acute than
that of the casual offender, and a slightly
more acute taste in the male than in tne fe
male criminal. Experiments with regard
to hearing resulted in demonstrating that in
criminals 67.3 per cent have less than the
normal ncuteness. Ear disease was common.
These dfieciencies are attribnted to bad hy
gienic conditions of life and vicions habits.
Penetration ot Lieut In Water.
A paper has been presented to the
Academy of Sciences in Paris giving the
result of researches made during the sum
mer months in the depths of the Mediterra
nean with the object of determining how far
daylight penetrates. The operations were
carried on in water,of remarkable clearness
between Corsica and the shores of the Alpes
Maritimes, at a distance of 18 miles from
the nearest land. Gelatino-bromide plates
were exposed for ten minutes, and the limit
of daylight in those waters was found to be
at a depth of 1,518 feet
A Useful Invention.
A very useful invention, tending to lessen
the possibility of accidents in factories, is
now being extensively adopted in England.
The breaking of a glass which is adjusted
against the wall of every room in the mill,
will at once stop the engine, an electric cur
rent being established between the room and
the throttle valve of the engine, shutting off
steam in an instant By this means the en
gine was stopped at bne of the mills recently
in a few seconds, and a young girl whose
clothes had become entangled in an upright
shaft was released uninjured.
Some excellent photographs of the moon
have been obtained by means of the Lick
telescope and its additional lens, and five
of them have just been published. They
form the text of an article by Mr. Baynard,
in which he touches on several points of in
terest to selenologists, e. g., the moon's
albedo, the question of ice or snow on her
surface, and also of a lunar atmosphere.
Mr. Eaynard says the prints are "ex
quisitely sharp," and it therefore follows
that we may shortly expect some valuable
work from the great telescope.
Interesting Engineering Feat.
The method of constructing the founda
tions of the great drawbridge over the
Thames at New London, is of exceptional
interest. Timber curbs were constructed,
which were sunk 80 feet into the bed of the
river, the bottom ot which was soft mud for
this depth. The mud inside the crib was ex
cavated, and the piles driven into the solid
ground then obtained. The heads of these
piles were then bound together with con

the relief fund at Johnstown at tbe time of the
flood S300, and have now donated $200 for the
school fund at that place, which speaks a great
deal for a council wbose members cannot af

It seems to be the prevailing opinion that
the same energy exercised in giving entertain
ments and holding fairs, directed toward the
relief of the sick, tne poor and destitute in tbe
order, and out of it too, would be more of a
living monument and speak in higher terms of
praise for the order, than tbe prospective
Washington monument The trreat G. W.. bv

Tbe Monumental Committee have staked off
ground for the monument at the head of Sher
man avenue, in tbe Allegheny Parks, and work
on tne iounaauon win oe commenced at once.
The committee have also made arrangements

The Oyster Pool Basted.
The so-called oyster pool, as onr would
be competitors in tbe oyster bnsiness call it
who has formerly been making big bluffs
and statements in papers, making big
parades, and running ten, more or less,
wsgons to make the public at large believe
that he or they are the only oyster king or
kings in the oyster bnsiness, merely for the
sole purpose of giving the people
something good and fine so to speak,
so ' the poor can eat the lu
scious bivals the same as the rich,
and then when the ex. co.'s are giving no re
bate and charging a fraction more for trans
portation, then the good public goes to the
king, or kings, and they say: "Ob, we have
got to charge a littlemore. Baltimore men
or oyster dealers are'forming pools. At tho
same time they are not receiving a stewing
oyster from that point, only coming through
there on cars from down the bay, where
cheaper grades come from. Now remember,
dear public, we make no bluffs, noadvertis-
ing,no parades, no-rnnning,as we say before;
10 more or less wagons to blind the public
at large. Why? When we first went into
the fish and oyster business these kings
wonld iaush and as much as say they will
not last long; bnt we are still on top and
onr bnsiness has gradually grown until: we
are doing the largest fish business, in Alle
gheny connty. Now, remember, we are the
only fish and oyster dealers running their
business independent of all fish and oyster
And furthermore, we never raise the
prices otonr oysters and try and get a pool
formed in onr city simply because the .ex
press companies charge a fraction more ex
press charges, and the oyster dealers are
forming pools whether it be East, West,
North or South.
Remember we still sell the Deep Bock
solid nntritious and choice stewing oysters
at old prices, 85c and 90c per gallon.
