Water Boat and Water Wheel.
Of course, any boat, unless It hap
pens to be an Iceboat, a stone boat or
The Water Boat Afloat,
a gravy boat, may be called a water
boat; but I am speaking of a boat
driven by water as well as through
water. Its principal parts are a tin
pan and a tall lamp chimney. Close
tho small end of the chimney with n
cork. Into which n rubber, bent glass
or lead tubo Is tightly fitted; prop the
chimney up In the pan with tho small
tubo projecting over the rim, fill tho
chimney with water and set the chim
ney craft afloat.
It will move with the ease nnd grace
of a turtle, though not so fast, until
all tho water has run out. You can
produce a better Imitation of speed by
using, Instead of tho pan, a little wood
en boat or more shipshape model with
tho water tube projecting over tho
Htern, but unless the vessel Is very
broad or beam it will capsize.
In fact, the boat Is made not to go
fast, but to Illustrate a principle by go
ing at all; and another Illustration of
tho same principle is given by the
water mill now to be described.
The mill Is mado of tha same lamp
chimney, or another, with corks or
plugs in both ends. Instead of one
water tubo It has two, three, four or
more, going out like tho Bpokes of a
wheel and bent at tho end all in tho
same direction. The chimney Is Bet
upright between two pivots, which
press against the upper and lower
plugs, and Is filled with water through'
a hole in the upper plug, which also
serves to admit nlr when the mill Is
turning. Tho only uso of tho top plug.

at the top. As the water flows out
through the little tubes the mill turns
in the opposite direction, nnd If thero
Is not too much friction nt the pivots
it will soon be spinning rapidly.
Tho water boat and water mill are
examples of what are culled reaction
machines. Tho principle they Illustrato
is that, generally speaking, you can
not move anything without moving
something else in tho opposito direc
tion. In both of these cases as tho
water is forced out in tho direction of
the wator tubo tho boat or tho pnrt of
tho mill from which It flows is driven
In tho opposito direction. Tho recoil
or "kick" of n gun Is nnothor lustra

uro holding It against your shoulder
you feel tho icactlon ns a "kick," and
it tho gun Is heavily loaded you may
move bnckwurd with great prompt
ness. A vessel might be propelled by fir
ing heavy cannon from tho shore.
Now, ir your big brother, who Is a
sophomore and nearly full of wisdom,
says that the pressure ot the stream or
water against tho air drives tho water
