His Own Plan. W
At a recent meetln of the Vienna
Geographical society Herr Aoscir.itz
Kampfe described as his own a plan of
reaching the North Pole, which, how
ever, was suggested some years ago
by a Swede, but for the execution of
which he Is now having a vessel built
by German murine engineers at WI1
helmshaven. His plan is to reach the
pole by means of a submarine boat,
passing under the Ice of the Arctic
ocean. In Ills address, as reported by
the Geographical Journal, Herr An-acbutz-Kampfe
said: The main fac
tors affecting the practicability of the
scheme are: First, the extent of the
separate ice fields In the polar sea,
d, secondly, the depth below the
surface to which the Ice reaches.
From extensive study as well as per
sonal observation the speaker had ar
rived at the conclusion that the aver
age maximum depth of the pack Ice
may be taken to be 80 feet, while the
mean thickness does not exceed 16 to
20 feet. Land Ice reaching in the form
of Icebergs a depth below water sur
face of several hundred feet may, he
thinks, from its virtual absence from
the seas In question, be left out of
consideration, while our present
knowledge of the depths attained by
the polar basin justifies the opinion
that reefs of rocks riHing towards the
surface of the ocean are not to be ex
pected. The proposed vessel will be
capable of descending to a depth of 160
feet, at which It will be entirely re
moved from the influence of cold,
storms, and lee-pressure, and the way
to the pole will be therefore open.
The length of tlrrte during which it
will be able to remain below the sur
face Is calculated at a maximum of
fifteen hours, which at the modest rate
of 3 knots allows it to cover a dis
tance of 50 miles, whereas the com
bined experience of polar voyagers
shows that continuous fields of pack
ice never exceed a maximum diameter
of 3 English miles. In the improbable
case of no opening being met with
within the fifteen hours there remains
the possibility of opening a way by
blaBting at a weak point In the ice, to
be Indicated without possibility of mis
take by the help of the manometer.
The risk of collision will be minimized
not only by the slow rate of motion,
but by the great power of resistance
to be poKseged by the ship, and in
dispensable on account of the great
pressure to which it will be subject
from water. Its form will be that of
an ellipsoid of rotation, with a major
axis of 70 feet and a breadth of 26
feet, giving a displacement of 800 tons.
To obviate rolling the center of grav
ity will be placed as low as possible.
The capacity of the Interior will be 3,
500 cubic feet, which allows sufficient
air for five men for fifteen hours, the
carbonic acid evolved being removed
by combination with caustic soda.
Propulsion will be effected by hori
zontal and vertical screws, the former
of 40, the latter of 5 horse power, this
last being sufficient to counteract the
tendency to rlBe; while the motive
power is to be supplied by a petroleum
motor through the medium of a 220
volt accumulator. One hundred and
fifty tons of petroleum will be taken,
or more than ten times the quantity
needed for the 600 miles' voyage to
the pole from Spitzbergen, to which,
or rather to the edge of the ice, the
submarine boat will be towed. On ar
rival at the pack the direction of the
first open water will be taken by com
pass, and, the boat being submerged,
a course will be steered for it. If,
after an hour or so the light shows
that an opening has been reached the
vertical screw will be stopped and the
boat will rise by its own buoyancy and
In case of a wide opening or channel
leading northwards the voyage will be
continued on the surface, giving an op
portunity for scientific work. Suppos
ing no gleam of light appears when
six hours have elapsed an ascent to
the lower surface of the ice will be
made with caution and the voyage
continued slowly until by the reading
of the manometer it is found that a
thin place has been reached. Here at
tempts will be made by blasting to ef
fect an opening, which, however small,
will be sufficient to supply air for an
other fifteen hours; while in the case
of failure there will be still time to
return to the last opening that has
been left, whence the voyage will bo
prosecuted in a slightly different direc
tion. But both assumptions made
that of an uninterrupted ice field more
than 18 miles In diameter, and of one
so continuously thick as to defy all ef
forts at disruption are entirely con
tradicted by all previous experiences.

Twenty years ago, by the census If
ISS0, there were 10 small cotton mllH
south of the Potomac and Ohio rivers.
The 1900 ceniius sowg 800 mills with
more than 4,010,0V) spindles and at
least 500,000 spindles more to be added
T7lthin the next few montiis in mills
now under construction. The most
rapid increase in the history of cotton
manufacture In the south is now fin
ing on. In Georgia alone 48 new milN
with 26.1,676 new spindles and 5,000
looms, representing an Investment of
13,860,000, were put In operation lasi
year. They nre all of the latent type,
both in construction and equipment,
and many of them are run by elec
tricity. During the previous year
Georgia built 1(8 new mills with 278.000
spindles and 4,710 looms, which repre
sented an equal amount of capital.
More than 75 per cent of the stock of
the Georgia mills Is owned by local
North Carolina stands next to
Georgia in progress, and on the line
of the Southern railway alone today
no less than 123 colton mills, repre
senting a capital of 114.227,950, and
consuming 340,132 bales of cotton ev
Few people realize what this means
to the south, not only In giving em
ployment to the people, but In the sav
ing of transportation charges, commis
sion and other items that go to make
up the profits of the middlemen and
the export and import merchants who
handle the raw product. This year the
cotton crop is said to be worth $500,
000,000 as It conies from the gin. By
turning it Into plain sheeting its value
Is doubled, and in raiding the gradi
of the manufactured product to a lit
tle better quality the value doubles
again, and amounts to $2,000,000,000.
Nor are cotton millH the only manu
facturing concerns that you see nowa
days in the south. During the last few
years the development has been very
rapid in all lines of manufacture to
consume the raw materials found on
the ground. On the Southern railway,
within four states, 1,062 manufacturing
concerns have sprung up within the
last 10 years. Sixteen are woolen mills,
96 are sawmills, 99 flour mills, 52 grist
mills, 58 are furniture factories, 49 are
tobacco factories. The furniture Indus
try is one of the most Important In
the new development of the south.
Thirty-nine new factories opened last
year in what is called the Piedmont
section, where there Is an unlimited
supply of hardwood suitable for cabinet-making,
plenty of low priced labor,
fuel and liberal labor laws.

A flustered young woman, out of
breath as though from walking fast,
rushed up the steps of the United
States mint at Philadelphia the other
day and asked to be directed to the bu

which read: "Among the curloltlcs

While he was thus engaged he began
to laugh and howed to others In tho

expectantly fingering four bright, new
pennies she had brought with her. Fin

Verdict Maant Death.
Aldrlch, Mo.. May 27th. Four of the
best doctors in the vicinity have been
In attendance on Mrs. Mollle Moore
of this place, who has been suffering
with a severe case of nervousness'and
kidney disease. Each of tbem told her
that she would die.
Hearing of Dodd's Kidney Pills, she
began to use them, and Instantly no
ticed a change for the better. Her Im
provement has been continuous since
then. She says that the disease first
manifested itself by the appearance of
dark spots floating before her eyes.
Her nerves were so bad that many
times they would collapse completely,
and she would fall down as If shot.
Th fact that Dodd's Kidney Pills
saved her after four doctors had given
her up, has caused no end of talk In
this neighborhood, and all are loud In
their praises of this new remedy
Dodd's Kidney Pills which is curing
bo many hitherto incurable cases, in
this state and elsewhere.

"Wearrtved In Calgary about the 20th
of December and although we had left
winter in Minnesota and Manitoba, we i
were surprised to find beautiful warm
weather at this point, quite equal to
what we have In May in Minnesota.
There was no snow nor trace of win
ter to be seen, and the climate was
really splendid. Horses, cattle and
sheep were running out, in prime con
dition, with plenty of feed on the prai
rie, and really better than that of ours
stabled in the south. We are Im
pressed with this country as one of the
finest mixed farming countries we
have ever seen. The Immense tracts
of fertile lands well sheltered and
abundantly watered leave nothing to
"Leaving Alberta we returned ea3t
and visited the Yorkton district in
Assiniboia. We drove out about ten
miles at this point and were highly
pleased with the splendid samples of
grain we were able to see wheat
yielding 25 bushels, oats 60 bushels.
Roots were also good specimens. From
what we have seen, we have decided
to throw in our lot with the .York

country will furnish good opportuni
ties for anyone anxious to make the
best of a really good country."

Among the street musicians of Chi
cago is a young man who plays to
earn his living whilo he pursues his
studies in a musical college. He holds
a scholarnhlp In the collego and Is con
sidered a promising student there, but
the problem for him Is how to main
tain himself In a city far away from
hie little homo town In Michigan while
he studies In the school. Ho has no
private resources. Each evening he
takes his vollln and on likely street
cornets plays to the crowd classical se
lections usually, and sends around the
hat afterward. His dream Is to have
a studio of his own and give lessons.
Then he will give up the street play
ing; but that can't be yet, "I don't
care what people think of me," he told
a reporter who asked him about his
aspirations. "I'm not ashamed of play
ing In the streets. It Is nearly the same
as playing In a concert hall for a feo.
Hut all the same I shall be glad when
I don't have to do It any longer." The
police don't bother the young musician,
and hie teachers rather admire him
for his courage than condemn him.

A woman is sick some disease peculiar to her sex is fast
developing in her system. She goes to her family physician
and tells him a story, but not the whole story.
She holds back something, loses her head, becomes agi
tated, forgets what she wants to say, and finally conceals
what she ought to have told, and this completely mystifies
Is it a wonder, therefore, that the doctor fails to cure the
disease ? Still we cannot blame the woman, for it is very em
barrassing to detail some of the symptoms of her suffering,
even to her family physician. This is the reason why
hundreds of thousands of women are now in corre
spondence with Mrs. Pinkham, at Lynn, Mass. To
her they can give every symptom, 60 that when she is ready
to advise them she is in possession of more facts from her
correspondence with the patient than the physician can
possibly obtain through a personal interview.
