UNIQUE STRUCTURE. k Mammotb. Tower with a Oscillating Beam. Huge n Engineer Suggests n Novel I'lan to Rulso People Eleven Hundred Feet in tho Air—Tho Latest World's Fulr Snppestlon. f Oberlin Smith, of Bridgeton, N. J., ^'Tbas sent to the grounds and buildings ^ committee designs for one of the most J y -unique structures ever proposed. It is "Jfor a mammoth tower, with a huge £ oscillating beam, from tho ends of ^ TvMch would be suspended two big f ' globes, in which visitors would be ad- *^mivted and raised 1,100 feet above the ground. The beam would be on the ^ principle of a see-saw, and would be, •beyond question, the biggest thing of the kind ever devised. Mr. Smith, says the Chicago Herald, is an engineer of * great reputation. "The general idea of the scheme," he ?^says, "is to make a permanent octagon- i"r al tower of severely plain contour, fe> about s^x hundred feet high, * and surmount it with a sheet ,, metal statue of Columbus about a hundred and twenty-five feet "high. This statue should look west•ward. The dome-shaped top would be about a hundred feet in diameter, rivet• ed together from plate steel. The posts at each angle of the octagon would be ^ -shells of steel plate ten or twelve feet - in diameter, riveted up like a boiler ^ -shell and tapering somewhat toward the i. top by placing each section inside of "f the 'one below. The cross pieces and i" graces would probably be of channel ^ iron, tee iron, etc. An interior skeleton j shaft,: containing an elevator, might be frr erected vertically in the center. Pivoted •J to the tower there would be, during the 5T -exposition, at least, a huge oscillating £*" "beam, swinging after the manner of a ^ •walking beam upon a steamboat. Its |" extreme length would be about 1,100 » feet, and its width in the center, up ji and down, about 150 feet. Between Jf each end of this double beam would be f, a globe of sheet metal about lOO feet in u SU6uld it not be financially feasible to complete the statue in time for the exposition it could be added afterward as a feature of the permanent tower." ONE FARMER'S HOME. Ho Likes It So Well That He Publishes His 1'lans. I have just built me a very bandy house, of -.vhich I show the plan. The upright is 30 by 32 feet with an addition fbacksido 10 by SO feet In the ground [plan A is the" hall and stairway. The I hall is 6 feet wide and extends through the upright to the kitchen. B is the parlor, 13 by 10 feet C the sitting-room, also 13 by 1C feet, and D the dining- room, IS by 14 feet, with folding doors opening into the hall, by which it can be made much larger if needed. The kitchen, E, is 10 by 16 feet, and is the largest room, as it is the most used, especially in a farmhouse. F. is the pantry, 10 by 13 feet. H and I are the wood house and wash-room, respectively, while J J are the porches. In the second story A is the hall way, extending the whole length, B and B A Knowing Hog- Here is a true story of a Vermont sheep-dog which Scotchmen will find it hard to match: Capt C , of Bradford, Vt, has a shepherd doff which was accustomed to bring home the cows at night, always separating- them from tlie other cattle, and never allowing- any but milch cows to come up. One day Capt. C accompanied the dog in driving the cows to pasture. At one place he was surprised to see the dog desert the herd and take to the woods by the side of the road. The captain went on with the cattle, which were walking briskly in advance. Within a quarter of a mile they caine to a break in the fence, of which the captain had no knowledge, leading into a field; and here, in the gap of the fence, sat the dog- in a matter-of-fact way, guarding- it against the entrance of the cattle. What else could his master suppose than that the clog was aware of the gap in the fence, and, knowing that the man would bring up the cattle, made a detour through, the woods to the place, to prevent the cattle from going into the field?—Boston Transcript —Stern Parent—"It is no excuse for you to tell me, William, that you did this and that because others did it, or because so-and-so persuaded you. You must have more character, and not say 'yes' to everything you are asked to do. 'No' is a very hard word to say, but you must learn to say it Now, get your supper and go to bed." Master Willie—"No, I won't I'm going to finish reading my book first"—Light —Gus—"Whaftsthematter, deah boy? You look tired." Fred—"Yes, I've been exerting myself mentally." Gus— "Thinking?" Fred—"No. I've been figuring up my cigarette bill for the past mo^iSu"—Yankee Blade. are the front chambers, 13 by 13 feet, while the chamber C, which is of the same size, has a closet 4 by 13 feet connected with it D D arc bedrooms, while E is the. bath-room.

I T803T f diameter, with one or more floors inside and rows of windows at a proper distance above them. These spheres •would represent the eastern and western worlds respectively, and they might to painted on the outside to represent ordinary terrestrial globes. Near the 'bottom of each globe would be doors of ingress and egress, through which passengers would pass when one of the globes touched the ground. When one of the globes was loaded, which would take but a few seconds, the beam would be set in motion to the reverse position, starting very slowly and accelerating to a rapid motion in the middle of its Bourse and gradually slowing again _to•ward the end, thus making the motion perfectly easy, but raising the passenger to a height of 1,100 feet in three or lour seconds, instead of thirty or forty minutes that were required to ascend the Eiffel tower. The height attained would also be greater. In addition this tower would have the advantage of o capacity many times as great as the Eiffel tower, for while one load of passengers was at the top enjoying the scenery another load could be taken into the globe that was down on the ground. These globes would remain •with their floors horizontal by being ballasted at the bottom, but if additional security was thought desirable a system of wire rope cables, extending from one globe to the other, inside the beam, could easily be arranged to keep then- vertical axes in absolute; parallelism •with the vertical axis of the tower. The beam would probably be moved by two rows of hydraulic cylinders, inside and near the top of the tower, their pistons either pulling by means of wire ropes upon a drum mounted upon the axis of the beam, or by racks upon • their pistons meshing into spur gears •upon the same. The machinery required would thus be very much more simple than in the three systems of elevators used in the Eiffel tower, and the motion of the beam would be entirely controlled by one or two valves in a water pipe running from the ground up to the cylinders. It could be made to work automatically, so as to prevent any undue speed being attained by the beam. If it was thought best to make the tower and statue only the ' permanent part of the structure,; the team could be so designed as to be ' taken down at a proper interval after the close of the exposition; and sold, to ' be put together again as a pair of bridge trusses in some, appropriate situation, -where they would make 'a bridge of Beautiful Guaranteed Cure forl.a Grippe.
