SWEDE CLAIMS TO CONTROL
RESTLESS POWER OF OCEAN
How to Harness the Waves for Indus
trial Work Has Been Solved.
Stockholm, Jan. 3.—How to harness
the sea waves for industrial work, one
of the oldest problems in the world, has
been solved, according to the claim of
a Swedish engineer, Lieutenant Sven H.
Lundberg, of the government road and
waterway construction eorsp, who has
applied for patent riglilH on a huge mech
anism, devised by Dim, which might be
characterized as a floating power sta
The Lundberg invention not only pro
duces power automatically from the ac
tion of the waves, but by means of tur
bine-driven dynamos can convert this
power intp electricity. It consists basic
ally of a raft
300 feet wide, whith is so affected by
the rising and falling of the sea that it
utilizes about 60 pgr cent, of the dyna
mic energy actually Contained in n wave.
It is not at present possible to give de
tails of construction, but experiments al
ready made with a small sized apparatus
prove, according to the inventor, that a
sing e wave five feet high cand deliver
2,700 horse power to the station, and
that the available power increases at a
more rapid rate than the height of the
wave, so that, for example, a ten-foot
wave can deliver 18.200 horse power.
Mr. Lundberg declares that floating
imwer rafts of this type are so steady
that production plants could be built on
top of them, and that they would be ideal
for factories that develop soda and chem
ical fertilizers out of air and water. He
makes also the startling claim that an
adaptation of the invention can be made
for ships so that enough power, taken
from a moderate sea, could be conveyed
to the propeller shaft to drive an nverage
freighter at the notnial speed derived

A River That Gets Rusty.
London, Jan. 3.—Believed to be the
only river in the world that gets rusty
is the River Ob, which runs through
the north of Siberia and empties into
the Arctic ocean. The Ob contnins a
great amount of iron. Every year when
the river is frozen over the iron is cut
off from the air. The result is tlmt the
metal precipitates, or in other words,
instead of being dissolved in the water,
becomes a solid.
The whole underside of the ice is
covered thickly with rust, and even the
fish and other creatures become rusty.
In the lower reaches, where ice does not
form, the water, ordinarily quite clear,
becomes cloudy and discolored. The
whole river, 2.300 miles long, becomes
People living near it have to quench
their thirst with melted snow, and most
of the fish leave the river and seek

the river at this time forces thousands
of fish on to the flat banks, where the
natives kill them with sticks.
