MADE LABOR FOR ENGINEERS
Elephants and White Ants Played
Havoc with Poles and Wires
Along Line in India.
Some American engineers, in eon
| struct ing n power-transmission line
! in Inii'j, had several things to eon*
j sider and avoid that had never eon
i fronted them before, perhaps. The
| line, which was nearly a hundred
miles in length, was carried on tall
poles through the jungle, and in 1*011
strueting it the ravages of white ants
and the playful pranks of wild ele
phants had to he provided against.
That sounds amusing, hut the en
gineers found it a serious problem.
The ants attacked the first poles set
and fairly riddled them; and the
elephants reached up with their
trunks and tore down the wires. So
iron sockets seven foot in height were
used to set the poles in. which cir
cumvented the ants: and after a
careful measurement of the highest
reach of an elephant's trunk, the
poles were made tall enough to keep
the wires out of the way.
STUDENTS BUILDING A CLOCK.
For live years students in the
senior class of the University high
school have been constructing a giant
clock to be hung shortly in the
Mitchell tower of the University of
Chicago. The clock, which meas
ures 13 feet in diameter, will he
finished on May 20.
Prof. Idarl Bixbv Person designed
fhe timepiece, but all the work lias
been done in iho shop of the manual
training department of the school.
The clock will hang 150 feet from
tlie ground, and will have four dials,
all of them transparent, so that the
time may be read at night.

CORNERED LORD KITCHENER.
Lord Kitchener a in uses himself by
making a wonderful collection of old
china. This amiable weakness is
becoming a positive passion with the
commander-in-chief. Lord Kitehen
er still holds his view that matri
mony means the end of a soldier’s
career. One lady, the wife of an of
ficer, is credited with having reduced
Lord Kitchener to silence on this
point by asking him, “if tlie ollicers
of the army of to-day an; not to
marry, where will you look for thy
offieprs of the army of to-morrow.”
