Indeed, the inventor (;abellinl has succeeded in Inducing the Italian government to a(lo~t it for ,'ertaln purposes connected with the navy. These boats have double skit~ and water-tight compartments, and, being craft of about 100 tons each. are able to withstand sh~.ks by voillslon to a surprising extent. Their draft Is little more than that of wooden ves.~els of the same size. A special advantage is that they neither rot nor ru~t; and they are easily kept cleat). Many canal barges of the same material are in use in Italy; and concrete has been found particularly well adapted for tile constructing docks and ~'a~,dons. Fish Choked Water Main.
