Abstract: 
Universal Review of the Sciences, Arts, Industries, Travels and Sports presented by Pathé-Baby. Trip to Austria. The Castle of Schoenbrunn. The castle and its dependencies have 441 apartments , and 139 kitchens. The staircase of honor. The Apartments: It is here where Napoleon established his general neighborhood in 1805 and in 1809. In this room once ooccupied by Napoleon and his son, the Duke of Reischtadt, King of Rome, died in 1832, at the age of 21. That park with its straight alleys, some parts with water, the perfect type of old french gardens. The large pool of Neptune. Situated at the edge of the park is "Gloriette," a slightly decorative building. Its ponds, its neatly trimmed hedges aim to balance the nature of the environment, with the architectural severity of the buildings. Forced Exercice: an iron fist. The strongest flint cannot withstand this fist that's as powerful as a hammer. The slow-motion perfectly shows the phases of the feat, with no special effects. Even the hardest bricks are equally broken by this formidable fist. Industry: How Rum is Made. Just as the vine makes wine, sugarcanes make rum. Manufactured in large rum factories, rum is one of the main exports of the Carribean. The sugar cane is crushed in mills, from which flows a juice called Vésou. After about 48 hours of fermentation… the juice is distilled. Stored in barrels the rum is then shipped to France where it is sold in stores. It begins to age in the barrels and then it's supplied for consumption. Modern Machines: Mowing Down Ponds. To mow down reeds in ponds to a large extent, a motor boat fitted with a saw blade on the front is used. Departure of the mowing boats. These boats act as harvesters. After they pass through, the cut reeds are aligned like crops. Snake Charmers. In Saigon, it is common to see snake charmers similarly to France where it is common to see sword-eaters and tightrope walkers; here is a type of snakecharmer.
