Yet the beauty of' the fall is already  seriously, menaced.   . .'"    .  In tli3 Technical World for October  Mr. Alton D. -Adams submits'an alternative proposition by which ; the  falls may be saved and its waters'be  used for the generation of electrical  energy. For seven nines below the  falls the drainage of half a continent!  flows through a rock-walled gorge  about. 200 feet in width. The walls  risjB  to a height varying from 200 to  , 300   oet.   In the course of this seven  miles the. river level drops about 100 .  feet.    Mr.   Adams  proposes the   con-  ' struction of a dam at the terminus  of the escarpment, just above the  town of Lewiston.. He shows that  the erection at this point of a dain  1,000 feet long "can be made to  raise the water level these 100 feet-,  without changing the elevation of  the pool at the foot of the cataract.  He     shows     that the basin  tin.  made   WKSild  carry  the  waters       of  both      the   Canadian  and   American  falls,  and  would  supply   practically  permanent and unvarying  force of i.  500,000     horse-power.   He says that  "an indirect result of the great power     development  at   this  dam   might  well be to prevent the multiplication,  of  the canals, pipe lines and  tunnels  tjhat now threaten to reduce N-ia^fvr-a  river to a stream  of uncertain wid that the centre of the Canadian channel  and  to  dry  up  entirely  bheAm-  er'ican Fall."

Those: who  recall: the treatment ci the Hebrew  race in Russia by, court, government  and people will be able to appreciate  the extent to. which this union has '  handicapped Witte, the situation being made more difficult  by the fact  that Mrs.. Witte, besides being Of  humble b.rfch, was formerly the wife  of a very io-bscure olficial subordinate  of Witte,'to wed whom she obtained  a dissolution of her first miarriugc ,  says the Chicago  Chronicle.  ,-it  is true  that she is" very, .clever  that  her second marriage was a love^  match,  and  that she  and her    'husband arc a devoted couple.   Moreover  her salens at St.  Pctorsburg are frequented 'by "la haute finance,'" both >,  Russian   and foreign,   which has  led  on more than one occasion  to totally unfounded and  scandalous rumors,  circulated by her husband's political  foes,  to  the effect  that  the habitues  of     her salon   . used     them to hatch  "coups  de  bourse"  on   the     money  markets,   both  at  home  and  atiro, >  w;Mi  official  information   and' secrets  obtained, through her from her   husband.    On   one occasion  the charges  of  this kind took such  a pronounced  form  that Witte  demanded  of     the  czar an independent inci>iiry into their  foundation, which resulted in  the establishment   of  the  groundlessness of  the accusations.  With all   that,  however, Mrs. Witte  has until now not been received    at  court, and  the great world   at   St.  Petersburg has followed  suit���������that is  to say, the feminine portien thereof.
