    • Queenstown Harbor, Ireland

    •

    • Burning Coke in Coke Ovens, Pennsylvania

    •  
    • If you have ever seen bituminous (b-t´ m-ns) or soft coal burn in a furnace or stove, you know that it produces a great deal of smoke. This is the reason most large cities will not allow it to be used for fuel. Again, it is so powdery that if a...

    • At Milking Time on a Dutch Farm

    •  
    • The Dutch have never been such noted farmers as their neighbors, the Belgians. They are shrewd traders, stubborn warriors, and bold sailors, as their history fully relates. They hold colonies far over the seas, and they have great cities. The Dutch...
    • The Great Wall of China

    •  
    • Here is one of the wonders of the world-the Great Wall of China. Your map of China will show you that this wall begins on the east at a bay of the Yellow Sea. It winds across mountains, rivers, and deserts, half the length of China. As the crow...

    • On the Docks, Valparaiso, Chile

    •  
    • The harbor of Valparaiso could shelter all the navies of the world. But its docks are hardly large enough to handle the goods that must go through them from day to day. One does not see here the great docks one sees in the harbors of New York or...
    • Harvesting Wheat in England

    •  
    • In some parts of Great Britain grain is cut with reaphooks or scythes, just as it was here less than 100 years ago. But this in not true in the great midland grain belt of England. In fact one sees harvesting machinery all through the British...
    • Drying Sardines, Japan

    •  
    • The Empire of Japan is chiefly made up of islands. The waters round about it are full of food fish. Fish are, therefore, a large part of the meat diet of the people. This is especially true since there are so few farm animals raised. Fish are...

    • On your right in the view flows the Columbia River. On the river bank is a railroad track. To the left of the track is a slender barrier made of boards. This barrier has been built to prevent the sand from burying the railroad tracks. The dunes are...
