Abstract: 
Picturesque Switzerland. The course of the Reuss. The Reuss, a tributary of the Aar, descends from St. Gothard thundering across the gorges for a course of 160 km. The view of the Devil's bridge is certainly shocking, built with a single arch above the bubbling current. The current leaps into an avalanche of foam, whipped by the wind, all the way to the depths of the black gorge. A daring bet. An acrobat having at the last minute hesitated, then refused, to cross a rope stretched out above the Seine, the mechanic of a crane tried and succeeded at this perilous crossing. Marine Animals. Jellyfish. The jellyfish that inhabit our seas are zoophytes shaped like bells or mushrooms. They move by contracting their umbrella-like bodies. The smallest commune in France since 1900. Le Tartre-Gaudran (Seine and Oise) consists of four houses, of which the Hotel de Ville has 9 inhabitants according to the Mayor. The city hall. The room of municipal counsel, and also the room of marriages. A miniature pinnacle indicates the placement of a long-gone church. The oddities of nature. From Gulliver to Lilliput. In Los Angeles (California) John Aasen is 23 years old and he is 2 meters and 60 centimeters and weighs 228 kilograms. Here he is at his tailor. Measurements that are not easy to take. In Berlin, Hercules Schmalbart is 19 years old and is 58 centimeters tall.
