American XVENTORS have been seeking for a good method of operating a parachute ln connection with an aeroplane so that ln cae the aeroplane should fall to the ground the parachute will remain ln the air and come down gradually to the ground with the pilot An automatic device of this kind the Invention of Max Bordes was exhibited at the recent Paris Aeroplane Show The different views which are given here will almost explain the working of the device ln themselves as it will be seen that the parachute Is attached to the pilots seat so that this latter serves as the car of the parachue when It descends Usually the parachute Is stowed ln compact shape inside the aeroplane body and back of the seat Means are provided for unbolting the seat from the aeroplane and at the same time releasing the parachute rod from the car so that It spreads out in the air when the aeroplane falls The simple movement of a lever carries out all the needed operations so that the aeroplane will fall down leaving the parachute Jn the air with the pilot Around the seat is pivoted a fork which ln turn holds the parachute rod so that fork and rod carrying the parachute can swing either in the line

vertical or horizontal position The to brackets driven to the solid rock above fork is large enough not to interfere with the pilots movement and ln the usual flight the rod and parachute are laid back and held in place by a lock device The pilots seat is held to the aeroplane body by bolts at each side which work upon levers so that he can unbolt the seat by working a hand lever and this movement also releases the catch device of the parachute detaching both seat and parachute from the aeroplane JVIen WLbo Smile at Danger BRIDGE BUILDEH MUST BE A COMBINATION OF DARING SKILL AND

other for the Indian tribes west of the Mississippi River were on the war path It is true that The shoot from one tunnel mouth to the other by an apparently frail link ot steel Is said to furnish a sensation Perhaps one of the most picturesque railroad bridges on this continent is to be found at Stony Creek in the Selkirk Mountains on the Canadian Pacific Railroad There is a shaped ravine there of great depth flanked by stern granite cliffs and crowned by pine clad hills A noble arched steel bridge springs from the sides of the gulch The Cisco cantilever bridge which carries the railroad across the Fraser River Is also another striking illustration of the engineers skill It leads to a driven through the precipitous wall ot the canon the boldness of the work being fittingly framed by majestic surroundings British India has been called the land of remarkable railway bridges It seems entitled to the distinction The Sone bridge of the East Indian Railroad consists of 93 spans giving the structure a total length of 10852 feet thus making It one of the longest bridges ln the world The Oodavaria bridge of the Madras Northeast line is 9066 feet In length and the Gokteik viaduct of Burma Is 325 feet high It was in Sweden that steel was first used for the erection of railroad bridges to be battered down by the practicing gunners on the great battle ships He acknowledged the necessity of practice but figured that the shot might far better rain against the sides of these floating enemies of peaceful commerce and traffic than the harmless old derelicts of the navy yards There are certain authorities upon icebergs who have maintained that a broadside from a modern battle ship would completely wipe out one of these obstructions to the lanes of commerce And who knows but that had thj suggested plan been in effect this spring ithe very iceberg that sent the llM ated PTitanic to the bottom on her maiden voyage might have been sighted and destroyed before it struck that main road of ocean traffic The plan is one that makes deep appeal because it foresees not the multiplication of means of rescue but the elimination of the possible causes of disaster The bill proposed does not ask that the program be inaugurated immediately It is not that visionary It modestly re quests that the Secretary ofi the Navy A patrol fleet has been suggested a fleet equipped with wireless instruments of such power that It might call out a warning to any vessel endangered In the sea however far distant however near at hand It must be attuned to every possibilitypossibility of

surveying parties by fanatical Arabs when the Hedaz line that runs from Damascus to Mecca was being projected or the comparatively recent wiping out by savage Dyaks of a surveying expedition that was seeking a route across British North Borneo or the tragic fate that befell a band of British surveyors who attempted to penetrate the forests of upper Uruguay But apart from human foes the railroad surveyor has sometimes to contend with those of a four footed kind The man eating lions that held up the construction of the Uganda Railroad Africa furnish a case in point So did the grizzlies that disputed the right of way with tfiose who were investigating certain routes for the Northern Pacific and the Great Northern The builder of railroads also has to contend with and provide against the antagonistic forces of nature from hurricanes to impassable canyons and it is In bridging canyons that the pluck skill and Ingenuity of the railroad engineer are seen at their best Bridge building ls one of the most daring and romantic callings ln the world said the late Charles Hays to the writer It calls for a rare combination ln man brains and courage There are many remarkable examples of bridge building in this country The White Pass and Yukon Railway of Alaska traverses a region of lofty peaks and deep precipices alternated with great gorges and wide clefts Such a condition calls for much bridging work during construction Between Skagway and White Pass summit there are seven steel bridges one of which Just before the summit Is reached ls 400 feet ln length and 215 feet above the bottom of the gorge The physical difficulties that had to be overcome before these bridges could be built seem beyond description Men defied the antics of acrobats to do some of the work The Central Alaska Railroad was intended to run from Seward to Fairbanks distance of 403 miles Unfortunately only about 60 miles of the road has been completed the project being hindered by entangled finances Yet the railroad lias a wonderful horseshoe timber trestle 1240 feet ln length and varying from 40 to 00 feet in height Over a million feet of lumber was used ln its construction The massive and impressive bridge of the Union Pacific Railroad over the Mis souri River at Council Bluffs crowned opposite portal of the tunnel also beng on a cliff edge The gulf between is spanned by a masonry bridge in the form of a balcony The depth of the chasm is over a quarter of a mile To build this bridge the workmen had to be slung out on derricks A snapped rope or a missed footing meant certain death There are some interesting even sensational examples of viaduct and bridge building on the recently constructed Oregon Trunk Railroad of the Hill system which opens up to transportation the Valley of the Des Chutes River of Central Oregon One of the tributaries of the Des Chutes River ls called Crooked River over which a steel arch bridge has been built that rises 320 feet above the water The sides of the Canyon through which Crooked River flows are unusually precipitous The usual cantilever methods were used ln the construction and the manner in which the building materials were carried across the canyon was decidedly out of the ordinary The work of erection began at the northern side of the chasm and when the span projected somewhat beyond the cliff material was lowered from this projection to the bottom of the cliff There It was fastened to ropes sent down from the south cliff and hauled up to the workmen at the top The completed bridge fumishes a good illustration of the resourcefulness of the American engineer The line competes with the Des Chutes Railroad which runs along the east bank of the river and is a part of the Harrl man system At Saddle Point the rival lines enter twin tunnels the approach to which ls over a single viaduct The greatest bridge from a structural point of view crosses the Zambesi River just below the Victoria Fall South Africa on the Cape to Cairo Railroad It is of steel and springs ln a single span of 500 feet from one cliff to the other At low water the center of the span is 420 feet above the river Another remarkable bridge on the line of the same road crosses the Kafue River which is the most Important tributary of the Zambesi It is of light steel divided into 13 spans each of 100 feet and supported by masonry piers 18 feet wide and 8 feet thick Light as it ls it is exceedingly strong for while in tha dry season the river averages about 9 feet in depth and has a sluggish current In the wet months It rises to over 17 feet and rushes along in a roaring torrent During the construction of the bridge hatten Falls At this point the Gota River forces its way through a gorge 137 feet wide just before it falls over a lofty ledge of rock The design of the bridge was of a novel order being something like unto an Inverted suspension bridge The Bergen Christlania line of Norway ranks as one of the most striking examples of railroad engineering in Europe The line was constructed across a storm swept plateau In one of the most sparsely populated districts in Europe where the winter lasts for eight or nine months It passes through 184 tunnels and includes 14 bridges ranging from a single span stone structure of 60 feet to one of metal 566 feet from end to end In the little known British colony Nya
