By L. R . PERRY Henceforth you may play golf indoors and virtually watch the appearance of the shot and the extent of the flight through the air. A clean, straight-hit ball is a poem of swift, silent flight. With this new machine and the score card of any course in the world, you can play that course, using the machine for your shots up to the green, and with a piece of carpet and a putting cup playing the hole out to its conclusion.
By G. H. DACY THE most remarkable development in modern photography is centered in the cyclographic camera recently devised and perfected by Dr. T.E. Eckhardt and his assistants at the Washington laboratories of the National Bureau of Standards. This special camera is a masterpiece of photographic skill, as it takes pictures of things on the fly, traveling at such excessive velocities that no other camera under the sun is qualified to get a picture of their flight.
By BURTON C. MEDFORD THE Salton Sea, of Southern California, two hundred and sixty feet below sea level—a vast inland sea in the midst of a burned-out desert—was recently the scene of a weird and extraordinary motorcycle tour, which was a combination land and water journey with vehicles never intended for anything other than human locomotion on land.
By DONALD WILHELM ABOUT the least conspicuous yet most important thing on any ship, especially a Navy ship, is what those on board often call the wireless shack. It's a small room aft of the bridge, usually, and the most interesting spot on board the vessel.
IN THIS DAY AND AGE attention to your appearance is an absolute necessity if you expect to make the most out of life. Not only should you wish to appear as attractive as possible for your own self-satisfaction, which is alone well worth your efforts, but you will find the world in general judging you greatly, if not wholly, by your "looks," therefore it pays to "look your best" at all times.
By GEORGE F. PAUL WESTERN visitors now find in the Pahaska Tepee, ten miles from the city of Denver, a unique and attractive building where memorials in many forms tell the life story of Colonel William F. Cody, the Buffalo Bill of frontier days. From the broad veranda of this structure on the side of Lookout Mountain can be seen the famous plains where Colonel Cody roamed as a scout and hunter.
Some Facts Worth Knowing— Liznite Gem Rings are different from any others you have seen or read about. They are hand-made, hand engraved, extra heavy, real art creations that last a lifetime. Liznite Gems sparkle and glow with the real fire and brilliance of diamonds so that even experts can scarcely detect the difference. We guarantee this and invite you to prove our claims at our risk.
By GEORGE W. EARLY IT is easy to imagine old Dame Nature as having been on one glorious spree, millions of years ago, when she threw up the hundreds of silent sentinels of the Canadian Rockies. Any number of remote places in this series of peaks, stretching from the bitter Arctic to the American boundary, not even as yet visited by more than half a dozen explorers, provide ample space to place all of the Swiss Alps—and never notice the difference.
In 30 Minutes And My Sensational Experience in Using It By Kirtland Bowen "KIRT, I'm a Pink-eyed Hyena if that follow weighed more than 125 pounds! Yet the little cuss made big 'Tubby' Williams seem like a paralyzed hippopotamus!" This was but part of the highly colored description Steve Clark gave me of the match at the Athletic Club the night before. But the whole story certainly struck a responsive chord in me. As a matter of fact any story in which a little fellow got the better of a bigger and stronger man always had an extraordinary fascination for me.
By EDWIN DENBY Secretary of the Navy WHEN a young American voluntarily enters the Naval Service of his country, by that act he lays aside for a while, and at all times when actually on duty, many of the rights and privileges which before as an independent citizen he was free to exercise.
AERONAUTICAL invention has conquered the air, and yet airplanes can run also on the earth. Nautical invention has* conquered the sea; but vessels cannot run also on the earth. Now, if the genius of man can make airships that will run upon land, why should it not also devise sea ships that will do the same thing?
By WILLIAM B. PHILLIPS DO you remember back in the days of the "three R's" when you drew the little single-line figures on the corner of your speller and by "flipping" the leaves caused them to come to life and to go through antics highly amusing if not exactly enlightening? They've changed all that now. With the ever-increasing popularity of the movie, educators and business men have not been slow to realize that those little figures could be made to do something besides fight and fiddle.
Why is she dressed like an elf? Musical Tones May Be Made on a Hand Saw One of the latest fads is to extract music from an ordinary hand saw. The illustration shows how this may be accomplished. Simply hold the saw between your knees, bend the saw with one hand and draw the bow [...]
AN American limousine has just been delivered to His Excellency Tsan Tso-Lin, governor general of Manchuria. It combines luxurious upholstery and beauty of design with armored protection. A lining of chrome nickel steel was built inside the body. Shutters of the same material, which are rolled out of sight in the roof of the car, can be lowered to cover the windows. Portholes in the sides and back of the car make it possible to fire from within.
WHILE the beautiful Cook County forest preserves that lie about Chicago are to be kept, in the main, in their natural condition, certain improvements are added yearly for the comfort and pleasure of the many thousands of city-weary guests who motor or "hike" to them every hot holiday. Among these recreation engineering features are two underwater bridges across the Des Plaines River above the town of the same name.
By A.W. ROE A SHIP equipped with machinery for harvesting fish from the ocean has been launched at Lybeck, on the St. Johns River, Florida. The boat is built upon long pontoons. It now remains to finish the installing of the electrical machinery ami the boat will be able to sally forth down the St. Johns River to the open ocean, there to prove or disprove the theory and dreams of the inventor of perfecting a craft that will catch, clean, cure and make ready for the market, fish in a wholesale fashion.
Warning the Driver Behind with a Red Hand A NEW traffic signal embodies a glass tube containing neon at a pressure much below the atmosphere. When it is subjected to static electric pressure, it glows a deep orange red. The upraised red hand of warning does exactly what it should do—attracts the attention of the [...]
These are not "before and after" pictures. They are all "before" pictures. It would be too horrible to show, in accompanying photographs, the irreparable harm that might result from these preventable situations. What, for instance, is there to keep the child at the left from falling on the pencil it is chewing?
The illustration shows a very novel and curious "fiddle" made of simple materials and yet a practical instrument to play. This "violin" is simply a long stick to which have been attached two tin cans. Stretched between two holes in the cans is a violin string, it being fastened on one end to a screw so that it will be adjustable to various pitches.
A KANSAS CITY man, unwilling to give up the joys of boating entirely for the joys of touring, has invented a camp-automobile of which the top is a complete motor boat, engine and all. The boat slides off on rollers and can easily be handled by one man, unlike some other one-man tops. It will carry six persons. Another extraordinary feature of the equipment of the automobile is a hot and cold water supply.
From the simplest test of memory to the most elaborate specifications, whenever an order is to be given it is the custom of the vast majority of people to put it in writing. This constant writing of orders is for the purpose of insuring accuracy. People are afraid to trust the ability of the one receiving the order to get it correctly, unless that order is put on paper.
By S.J. Duncan-Clark REAMS come true. Today the people of Chicago are seeing them come true. A dozen years ago — save for a few men —Chicago scoffed at their possibility. Chicago is to be a city of beauty—Chicago, the lusty-limbed, giant child of the prairie, whom one of her own poets has called "Hog-butcher for the world," is to take her place among the regal cities of civilization. This is now assured. Faith and works are rapidly converting the dream into visible and substantial form.
By David Wark Griffith IT is youth that wins war. And it is youth that wins audiences. Often, people inquire why movie stars are small in stature and youthful in appearance. Not all of those that are successful are so little—Constance Talmadge, for instance, is not—yet most of the movie heroines are. Usually, they are little, and they are young. But why?

IT'S a far cry from the Bronx to Coney Island. Besides, Coney Island costs money. The children in the neighborhood of Crotona Park, New York City, therefore, have made a scenic railway all their own. It is better, they think, than all the Coney Island rides put together, and they have had the fun of making it as well as riding on it.
