McLandburgh Wilson in New York
More Islands Rivers and Canals About
Venice the queen of the Adriatic
with her 157 interlacing canals that
form 118 islands is less of a water
city than is the metropolis of America
for New York has a greater navigable
water front than any other city in the
world The waters within the bound
aries of Venice could be swallowed
up by the currents that ebb and flow
within New York and make no per
ceptible addition to them New York
has just as much moonshine aud lots
more water and though the guitar
and musical voice of the gondolier are
not hoard other voices less romantic
are heard on almost every sort of craft
that floats in water
New Yorks islands are more in num
ber than those of Venice and in Ja
maica bay alone are as great possibili
ties as the lagoon of Venice ever pre
sented for a beautiful city still re
maining possibilities If Venice were
placed in the center of that bay thre
would be more expanse of water
around it than there is now in the
entire lagoon of Venice
In New York city are 204 miles of
navigable water front from the unpre
tentious kills of Staten Island to the
great Atlantic that washes the Coney
Island shore and beaches of Rockaway
Much of the city is islands and what
is not are great peninsulas more than
half surrounded by water
Richmond alone has nearly forty
miles of shore line and Manhattan ha
thirty more miles where bows of tht
CTcatest ships that tloat can reach ovoi
the land Queens and the Bronx hav
fifty miles which embrace the wester
ly end of Long Island sound and thr
winding shores of Brooklyn with the I
irrent Jamaica bay make up the rest I
Parliament of Tiny State Ruled by
The parliamentary procedure of An
dorra the tiny independent state
which lies sandwiched between France
and Spain is of the quaintest kind
Parliament having been called for a
certain day the honorable members
arrive in groups on horses or mules
shed with the usual Andorran foot
gearwhite corded sandals
The Sasa de la Vails serves at the
ame time for palace parliament and
prison not to mention stables for the
members steeds After stabling the
animals on the ground floor the mem
bers ascend to the hall of deliberations
change their sandals for shoes and put
on the oflicial costume a long black
sort of robe and a huge three cornered
hat These when not in use hang in a
row on pegs at the bottom of the hall
The next proceeding is mass in the
chapel tiny and bare dedicated to the
Holy Ghost then comes a meal served
on an oaken table without a cloth and
eaten off antique pewter plates Be
tween every two members stands a
huge porron and each drinks in turn
out of this pitcher In this home of
archaicism everything is done accord
ing to tradition Even the daily menu
is the same today as it was centuries
St Johns Wort Spreads Over 20000 I
Farming Acres
Just thirty years ago a woman at
Bright Victoria planted in her garden
a few seeds of St Johns wort sent her
from the old country The womans
intention was to have one or two of
the plants at hand for medicinal pur
poses The hardy weed however soon
spread beyond the garden and before
nny one had grasped the magnitude of
the evil it had been carried by cattle
along all the main stock routes and
jumped the Victorian watershed into
It has now completely taken posses
sion of something like 20000 acres of
agricultural land and the agricultural
department of Victoria is spending
thousands of pounds in the endeavor
to eradicate it some of the methods
tried costing nearly 30 an acre
Arizona Aviator to Haul Machinery In
Dr J J P Armstrong has contract
ed with Arthur Williams an aviator
of Douglas Ariz to convey placer
mining machinery from Douglas to a
property in the Chihuahua mountains
in Mexico The distance is about 300
miles The machinery is such that it
can be carried only in 100 pound lots
Williams owns and operates a mono
plane This is probably the first con
tract calling for the commercial use of
a heavier than air machine
Miss E L Todd Who Has Built Her
Own Biplane
While the fair sex abroad Is rnkluj
a prominent part in aviation Americ
has a feminine pilot of the sky win
has gone them all a few better in thb
direction She is Miss E L Todd ol
New York who has uot only built hei
own machine but proposes to pilot it
herself In a number of races this sum
mer Ilcr air vehicle is a biplane oi
novel design and thirty feet in length
exclusive of the small llexible piano
These extend two feet on either skit
and are operated by steeling lines con
uected to the aiaturs seat Tin
twelve foot double horizontal plane in
front of the plane which controls tin
angle of the descent or ascent is con
trolled by a wheel which also by i
different movement acts on the reai
rudder The steering wheel and it
post have in fact a quadruple action
right left forward aud backward
This of course much simplifies the
management of the winged ship
One feature of Miss Todds aeroplane
commends it as a war machine Ex
clusive of the engine it weighs little
more than 20 pounds and can be read
ily taken apart for man mule or wag
on transportation Miss Todd is a
short gray haired woman who con
veys an extraordinary impression of
vitality and alertness in her every
move For several years she has de
voted her time and money to aviation
and is the organizer of the Junior Aero
club a flourishing organization with
scores of youthful enthusiasts enrolled
The Smallest Typewriter
The inventors have astonished u
with a watch little larger than a penn
and all sorts of other freak miniatures
and now conies the smallest typewriter

small that it can be
slipped into your
waistcoat pocket as
easily as a time
piece and carried
just as convenient
ly In fact it is
in the shape of a
watch The letters
on this tiuv writ
ing machine make their mark under
the pressure of the knob within the
ring and the writing is done on a strip
of glued papM Considering its size it
turns out surprisingly good work
