over the unexpected brllllnncy of Tar

new curve balls has become a fad.

The Water Wheel.
The water wheel is probably the
oldest method of obtaining me
chanical force apart from the em
ployment of animal force. This
wheel was no douht at lirst work
ed by a flowing river and then by
a falling stream, and it would not
bo a very great advance on this
method to dam back the stream so
ns to obtain n continuous supply of
force even in times of drought.
Such storing of water at a suffi
ciently high level is the simplest
method of storing force. If care
fully arranged the loss by evapora
tion and leukago is small and may
bo partly or wholly replaced by
rain, so the force is always availa
ble, and but little labor is needed to
keep such works in repair. The
water clock of the Romans was an
elaboration of this method of stor
ing force and was for them the
only form of "motor."
Old as the history of tho world
itself is that of tho queen of flow
frs. Tho nncir.nt Greeks and Ro
mans reveled in roses. They were
used lavishly at their fensts. In
the time of tho republic tho people
had their cups of falernian wine
swimming with blooms, nnd the
Spartan soldiers, after the battle of
Cirrha, refused to drink any wine
that was not perfumed with roses,
while at tho regatta of Taiao the
whole surface of the Lucrino lake
was strewn with flowers, i
