Abstract: 
Zoology. The Shetland ponies. These ponies live a semi-wild life on their rocky island. They are covered in long hairs that act as a coat to protect them from the continually harsh climate. Theirs heads are strong, their necks thick. Very resistant and intelligent, they are easily trained. Industry. Contruction of a Parisian bus. The frame is ready to receive its bodywork. Once the construction of the body is completed, painting is next. The body is mounted onto the frame. The finished bus is going to begin service. Ways and customs. With the Dayaks (Borneo Island). Numerous waterways run through this great island of Oceania. It is on these waterways that young Dayaks participate in their favorite sport, canoe racing. New Inventions. The rotating scene from the London Coliseum. The stage manager, from his position, raises the curtain. While the scene plays out, the décor for the following act is put in place. The scene is finished, the curtain falls. With a simple maneuver from the chief machinist, the immense platform turns on itself, putting the next scene's décor in place. Travel. The Roman ruins of Sbeitla (Tunisia). The Arch of Triumph constructed during the reign of Diocletian. The ruins of a bridge on the Sbeitla wadi. A Byzantine baptistry in mosaic. The monumental gate raised under Antoninus Pius through which the Forum could be accessed. Well-preserved temples remain standing. Capitals remarkable for their elegance attest to the richness of the monuments in the times of the splendor of the ancient city.
