Popular science monthly . nchshell carrying highexplosive generatesgases on explodingwhich exert tre-mendous pressure. That pressure mustbe absorbed, or else it may breachthe ship below the armor belt. So, Mr. Gathmann attaches to the loweredge of his chambered belt a series of airchambers or pontoons, each independentof the other. Study the illustration which accom-panies this article and you will see thatthis shock-absorbing section consists offive walls: a downwardly-extendingportion of the armor belt; a rear plateto which that downwardly-extendingportion is bolted; a curved front plate, and two end plates to enclose thepontoon or chamber. The pontoons seem flimsy, and inreality they are. But they are intendedto be destroyed. The pressure of thegases from a huge shell will disrupt one, two, perhaps three shock-absorbing orpontoon sections, but the rest will re-main intact. The air within the cham-ber will have a cushioning effect. Waterwill rush into the compartment, but thepantoons will still remain in place.. Rapid gatheringinjuring the stemswith this An Instrument forPlucking Flowers ANF.W (ierman invention seeks tosimjilify the tedious and fatiguinglabor of picking flowers and seeds. Theinstrument, already patented, which ishere illustrated, consists of a sheet-metal tube combined with one-bladeshears. The lower front part of thetube is formed as a seven-pronged fork and this fork is advanced towardsthe flower to begathered frombelow it. Theflower is caught bythe prongs and iscut from the stemby a knife abovethe fork that worksupon a light pres-sure on the handleof the shears. Whenseparated from thestem the flowerfalls through thetube into the bagunderneath. The rapidity andease of gatheringreduces the ex-pen.se. It is also claimed for thisinstrument that the plants are notdamaged as in hand-picking, in whichtwigs and branches are easily injuredand the entire plant is frequentlytorn out of the ground.
