An eminent authority on mental conditions calls attention to the peculiar fads and fauces that seem to take hold upon the minds of many persona and to entirely dominate them, much to their disadvantage and often to the deterioration of their mental powers. One man who conceived a fancy for countcaring the nuinbera on freight cars, ried this notion to such an extent that he oftenttmes forgot errands and neglected his business. He began by having his attention called to the figures on a car that surprised him as Indicating a very large number of cars owned by a certain railroad. Then It entered hta mind to look for the next lowest number. This he did. and found it, after several weeks watching. Then he wus filled with the Idea of securing the numbers In succession, and gave his attention to picking them out whenever he went near railroads. He had a book for this purpose, and so completely did this take possession of him that he became exceedingly annoyed and Irritated when It grew so dark that he could not see the figures on the cars as he passed them. The case became rather serious, and the attention of a physician was called to It. lie recommended a long sea voyage, which was taken, much against the patients will, as he was reluctant to give up bis hunt for numbers. After he had become entirely accustomed to the absence of his favorite amusement, he was reasoned with and shown the folly of it. Being a man of strong will, he took himself in hand, and. after a hard struggle, was able to go about, oblivious to the fact that freight cars had figures on them. 0 these still there will be elevated wiffks each about three feet nine inches wsle for pedestrians.

The car will be in the shape of a ship's hull, and In rase oL the aerial contrivance collapsing, the inventor claims the crew can drop to the surface of the sea and become navigators of the water instead of the air. Tightly closed trapdoors, which, when securely fastened, will not admit water, are to be opened when at the desired height for the purpose of releasing torpedoes, to be lowered by a cable reeled from a windlass In the car. The torpedoes, according to the inventor's plan, are to be lowered to the deck of an enemys ship or swung against the side of her hull, when a current of electricity Is to be sent through the cable to explode the cartridge. The airship is designed particularly for night service, and to that end a powerful electric light Is to be provided In the form of a large globe suspended from a reel of wire passed through the floor of the car.
