While Ihe Wheel

Perpetual motion-that "quality" of
mechanics the suggestion of which has
caused the physicist to tear his hair,
the inventor to get dopey with visions,
and which has given the public appen-

has been achieved.
A model in our own engineering col-
lege is daily demonstrating the truth
of the assertion and is causing the
downfall of well-known, fundamental
laws of physics and mechanics. The
"Law of the Conservation of Energy"
has taken an awful tumble, dragging
with it the "Law of the Conservation
of Mass" and knocking the props from
under Sir Isaac Newton's three popu-
lar hypotheses. "Laws of Friction"
are shot full of holes and ,"Common

The wheel, attached to the mounted

No one is seen to touch the wheel.
It does not get its power through a

No invisible jet of air plays over the
surface of .the rubber tire. The sur-
rounding air is not especially sur-
charged with electrons to coax the
wheel around. Oh, no; the explana-

Some one in an idle moment gave
the wheel a turn to see if it would
"go." It did, and it went for a long
time. In fact, it's going yet, with the
help of other turns administered in
other idle moments, evidently with the
theory that "one good turn deserves

"The Ware Case" at the Garrick
"The Ware Case," which the Gar-
rick company will offer at the Gar-
rick theatre, Detroit, all next week,{
with Lou Tellegan as star, supported
by Montague Love, Gladys Hanson,x
Albert Bruning, and an unusual cast,
has been termed a sensational mys-
tery play of surprises. The audience
is kept in doubt as to the trend of the
story until the fall of the final cur-
The play is by George P. Bancroft,a
son of Sir Squire Bancroft, who writes
under the name of. George Pleydell,
and was produced at the Wyndon
theatre, London, where it has enjoyed
long and continued success with Ger-
ald du Maurier in the principal role.
Despite the war excitement this play
continues to exercise its hold upon the
English public.' The first production
is being made in Cleveland this week,
and after the Detroit engagement the
play goes directly to New York City.
A mighty good bill is offered at the
Majestic theater in the form of a min-
iature musical comedy. W. B. Frie-
lander, Inc., produces this play, which
is written by Lou Hough, author of
several good musical hits. Billy Kent
is the comedian and is very clever.
He is supported by a very good cast
and a fair chorus. Among some of
the best songs are: "Traveling," "Take
a Jitney Ride," "On the Honeymoon
Express," and "She Fell in Love With
a Toreador." The scenery is good and
the costumes are in keeping with the

Coming to the Whitney theater on
Saturday, November 13, will be that
dainty musical success, "The Only

a year's run at the Lyric theater, New
York, where it was conceded to be the
greatest musical hit of the past few
years in the big metropolis. It is the
work of Victor Herbert and Henry
Blossom, who have in the past given
us "The Red Mill," "Mle. Modiste"
and operas of that high standard. The
production is under the management
of its original producer, Joe Weber,
who has kept the cast, chorus and or-
chestra intact since it was seen in New
