The nautical adventures of the VI
kliiKS of old, which have been cele
brated In song and story, are over
shadowed In Importance by the re
markable voyage of Captain Joshua
Slocum around the world In a sloop
as, fort 9 Inches In length over all and
nine tons net burden. The solitary
Yankee wa king cruised 40.000 miles
no all the oceans, ten times the dis
tance ever claimed for a Viking ship.
It was the first and only BiiccesMful
attempt to circumnavigate the globe
alo-no In a smail boat. The extraordi

Captain Slocum sailed from Boston
on April 24, 1800, and bis voyage con
sumed 3 years and 2 months, coming to
close during the Spanish-American
r. In lieu of a chronometer he had
n old tin cloc!', but be was rarely at
fault In his longitude. The voyage was
ttended with many unusual 'ncidents.
The tin occurred after the Spray had
left her Hrst port of cnll. the Azores.
The Captain had eaten freely of plums
ml a native cheese, and they did not
tree with him. He was attacked with
tomachic cramps. He double reefed
the mainsail and with a full Jib put the
loop on her course, lashed the wheel
nd went below to the cabin, where he
jelled In agony on the floor. Becoming
delirious, he Imagined that a strange

The oldest type of engine represented
at the Pan-American Exposition is the
Windmill. The earliest mention we
have of a windmill being employed to
do any work was In Alexandria 150
B. C, when an Invention driven by
wind power was employed to operate a
musical Instrument As even this must
have been the product of evolution 1
leaves us entirely In the dark as to
the actual origin. However, we know
that windmills were employed In use
ful labor In many parts of Europe long
before Columbus discovered America.
These old windmills were quaint af
fairs. Some of them floated on wa
tcr and were turned by hand to meet
the vagaries of the wind. A later de
velopment was built on a post, and atill
later the roof nf the building was pivot
ed, which allowed the building Itself to
It remained for the engineers of tbo
nineteenth centurv to construct s wind
engine that was at once timple, useful
and practical The amount of powei
developed aud usefully applied by this
time honored Invention amounts In
the aggregate to hundreds of thou
sands of horsepower.
At the Pan-American Exposition n
group of windmills will be gathered to
gether and planted In a corner of the
grounds, where tbey will be required
to pump water and In other ways
demonstrate their usefulness. These
will comprise many different types,
showing the evolution of the engine
from the old fashioned four sail pat
tern down to the ordinary multitudi
nous sprocket plan In which the sail
area Is automatically adjusted to the
wind pressure and the speed Is regu
lated by a governor. Some of these
engines will develop a tremendous
power, while others are simply devlaed
as a cheap and reliable means of work
ing n farmer's pump.
Experiments extending over a period
of years have been conducted for the
purpose of generating electricity by
this means. Developments along these
lines so far have not been entirely sat
isfactory, though indications point to
ultimate success. The difficulties met
with are principally owing to the In
constancy of the wind, which must
be overcome by storing up the energy
f the gale to be given off as required.
Aa tbe alow development of the storage
battery retards this Important achieve
ment we await with Impatience tbe
improvements in this direction that we
know ought to be made. Tbe time will
undoubtedly come when electric light
ing will be done In tbia manner In
fact, the electric light plant In a vil
lage In Scotland Is now partially op
erated by a wind wheel which la built
on tbe horizontal prlnclpaL
To those unfamiliar with tbe pro
duction of tbe wind engine aa used at
the present time a visit to this section
of the Exposition will be a revelation.
Hitherto this early Invention baa been
useful merely to the farmer and stock
man. Possibilities In tbe Immediate
future point to a much wider and more
extended usefulness when power from
this source will be bottled up In storage
batteries and shipped to distant points
to bo used In the mechanic arts.

TlK' Puu-Aiuviicuu Uxpo3ltlon will
pi ive tt be of mon .; nulue benefit to
those Interested In the proper care of
live stool, than any previous effort in
this direction. Stable construction is
a question that appeals with great
force to every farmer who Is auxious
to secure good results. The question
of expense is a great barrier to the
proper building of tills necessity. Un
fortunately some of the early examples
of good stables were built by men of
larRo means, regardless of what the
cost might be. As a result practical
fanners wore slow to take the matter
up, as the idea of a properly construct.
el stable became at once associated
with great expense.
One object of Mr. I'. A. Converse,
who has charge of the live stock and
dairy products at the Exposition, In
building a model stable at the Exposi
tion is to counteract this erroneous Im
resslon. A properly constructed stable Is not
necessarily an expensive one. Cleanli
ness, fresh air and sunlight, with s
modulated temperature, may be ob
tained In a building of ordinary cheap
construction if properly arranged.
A light, cheap framework covered
with paper which Is protected with a
sheathing of very common boarding
and covered with a good roof makes a
very good start. This should stand on
ground that Is well drained and ex
rosed to the sunlight, but protected
from cold winds. Tbe floor should be
of cement and carefully designed to fa
cilitate cleanliness In every particular.
Double doors, fly screens aud dark
blinds should be provided and mndc to
A system of ventilation should be
provided that will ventilate. Anything
will not da By excluding the cold and
the light ordinarily we also shut out
the fresh air, without which no an
imal cau thrive. Many stockmen are
careful about the quality of the food,
though careless about everything else
In connection with tbe stable. In this
manner they are protecting tbelr stock
in one direction while leaving them ex
posed In many others.
Stable air la devitalised by passing
through the lungs, it Is also being con
taminated by chemical decomposition
of tbe excremeotum as well as tbe
fumes arising from tbe fermentation of
damp bedding, etc
To thoroughly understand bow to
properly ventilate a stable It Is neces
sary to study tbe circulation of air at
changing temperatures, which Is gov
erned by fixed laws and may be easily
understood. Warm air la lighter than
cold air. Generally speaking, foul air
Is heavier than fresh pure air from the
outside, even at tbe same temperature, j
Btarung rroin tnis well known princi
ple, ventilation should be arranged ac

It consists of an air stack with a
hood, the opeuinc of whlob is turned
away from the direction from which tbe
wind Is blowing. To this main air pipe
are attached feeders from different
parts of the stable. These feeders have
slide openings to admit and carry off
the foul nlr from near the floor at the
sides of the stable. Fresh air Is ad
mitted through a central opening In tht
As the draft that Is created by the
hooded stack Is sufficient to draw the
bottom air from the stable, fresh air
must go down through the central

Clty by day and City of Light by night,
and If this be true It should prove the
most beautiful sight of Its kind ever
created for tbe delectation of the hu
Much has been written about the illu
minations of tbe Exposition, but the
public Is scarcely aware of the mag
nificence of the scene which Is to be
created by the use of Incandescent
lights in such generous profusion about
the main court of the Exposition and
the buildings immediately surrounding
It When one says that 300.000 of
these lights are to be used, the figures
look large, but tbey are nevertheless
true. Nor does this Include all the
lights that are to be used In the general
Illumination of tbe Exposition, for on
the Midway several concessions, such
as the Thompson Aerlc Cycle, Street"
of Mexico and some others will use as
many aa 2,000 lights each. In the
buildings and about the border of the
grounds will be arc lights, while Incan
descent lamps will also be used by
many Individual exhibitors. Thus the
figures 300.000 will be considerably In
creased. The illumination of the Elec
trie Tower Is going to be not only as
tonlshlng and novel, but truly artistic.
The automobile has won such favor
that tbe construction of these vehicles
has become one of the Important new
industries or the world, in any new
and prominent field like this the Unit
ed States, with its wealth of active in
ventive minds. Is expected to take the
lead. That this country does lead will
be demonstrated by the exhibit made
at tbe Pan-American Exposition.
