Looptmr the loop and Ita progeny
are tha most effective devices yet In
vented for producing apparent as
well as real danger, aays the Scien
tific American. Does any one still
remember the American bicyclist
who used to ride at terrifying speed
down a steeply Inclined sixty-foot
ladder? One night an attack of ver
tigo caused his death, but his act
was less dangerous than the per
formance on Inverted and aerial
paths to which we have since be

•ailed the devil's wheel, la which tha
cyclist spins like a squirrel. Taking
his place Inside the wheel, which la
about fifteen feet in diameter, he
I>edals in a direction opposite to that
of the wheel, and thus remains at
the bottom until the wheel has ac
quired considerable velocity. Then
he stops pedaling, applies his brake,
and Is tarried backward and upward
nenrlv to the top, whence he ruahaa
down, and files around and around
the revolving wheel with atartllng
At a performance In Vienna a cy
clist stricken with apoplexy fell from
tho wheel and soon expired. But tha
danger of cerebral congestion Is not
the only one. The critical phase of
the act Is the last, when both the bl
ccle and the large wheel are being
brought to rest by brakes. The bi
cycle lurches, and the slightest error
In steering may send It through tha
open side of the wheel and precipi
tate the rider to the stage.
In Germany a genius called
"Eclair" Invented an Infernal wheel
of nnother sort. It was about IS
feat In diameter, and a smaller wheel
rolled around Inside of It, obtaining
Its Impetus from a plunge down an
Inclined |)t*ae. which made a descent
of fifty feet. To this small wheel
"Eclair" was lashed In spreadeagle
fashion Ha accustomed himself to
this novel mode of locomotion by
having himself strapped to a similar
wheel, which was turned rapidly
about a fixed axis by means of a
More startling and perilous than
any of these devices Is the "circle of
death." This Is a large, flat, trun
cated cone, like the rim of a pud
ding dish, supported by ropes In a
position slightly Inclined to the hori
zontal, so that only one side of the
lower and smaller edge rosts on the

chiiies and bodies nearly horizontal
Then to add to the apparent and real
danger, the whole apparatus Is
raised aloft. The effect Is thrilling,
for the riders appear to bo In con
stant danger of falling. In Berlin, as
three cyclists were gyrating In a sin
gle circle of death, one fell and car
ried a second down with him. They
had scarcely reached the stage when
the third performer fell also* -
What Is the Incentive which lm-*
pels tb*BH men and women to risk
their lives nightly before crowds of
spectator*? Is It ambition,
love of applause, or simply the hope
of making a fortune? Tho American
"looping the loop" was conceived In
an essentially practical spirit, and
"Dlavolo," who received S6OO a
a night, has become a rich man.
Mile. Dutrleu, "the human arrow,"
earns SBO,OOO a year. "Mephlsto" re
ceived 1140, Mile, de Tiers S2OO a
night In Paris and larger sums
abroad. Imitators, of course, re
ceive less than originators. The cur
rent pay for looping the loop la from
S2O to |4O a night,which Is not high,
especially If the perfumer owns the
apparatus, which costs at least 1500.
It seems, therefore, that the hope
of gain Is not the only Incentive, but
that the performer, like the public, la
attracted by the very danger of the
act— a curious Illustration of the
fascination exerted by emotions which
In themselves are disagreeable.

Of the amount expended nearly

The First Autorpofella.
The automobile secuis to litve been
born in the form of an idea, in the
year 17f>9, when a Glasgow student
threw out the suggestion that the
steam engine—then a very crude low
pressure affair —might be applied to
the moving of wheeled vehicles'' This
student afterward achieved fame as
Dr. Koblnaon, professor of natural
philosophy In the University of Edin
burgh. Ten years later Nicholas Ja
seph Cugnot, a French engineer, built
the first automobile. The machine
was a three wheeled affair and Its
course was quickly run, for on Its sec

fast and toppled over with a crash.
