Nautical Sports. Los Angeles, United States. Only three years old, this little swimmer can hope to become a champion. In her instructor's arms, she rests after her efforts. Horticulture. The germination of a pea. Germination can be considered the beginning of the life of a new plant. The embryo which has begun to develop is now called a seedling; it consists of two parts. One grows downward: the radicle, the other grows upward: the stem. Public works. Genoa, Italy. To enlarge the port, 80,000 cubic meters of rock were built at once. The quarry before its destruction. Galleries were carved into the rock. The pillars supporting the rocky mass were mined. The electric firing mechanism. The simultaneous explosion of 435 hits of mine packed with 1,200 kilograms of dynamite is assured by a detonator cord wired for instantaneous combustion. Science. A taxi car has been equipped with a telephoning apparatus with no cords; in this way, one can combine the charm of a walk in the woods with the joy of a radio-concert. Fine Arts. Popular Russian dance. In the village festivals, the country people interpret the following scenes of dance. Madame Korty and Monsiuer Moyssenco mime one of these scenes: the kiss. Style and customs: The festival of Ariégeois costume in Foix. Dressed in local costumes, the people came to the festival in great numbers. Some interesting clogs. Indian sports. Elephant wrestling. The elephant drivers enjoy pitting two elephants against each other and encouraging them during these games. Travel. Yang-Tcheou-Fou, China. This very commercial city has a large population and its streets are extraordinarily animated. Invention. The "Rosé Wood" experiment (a boat propelled by an airplane motor combined with a marine propeller) met with great success on the Seine. Munich Bavaria. At the great Oktoberfest, beer flows abundantly… to the great pleasure of some!
