Caption fig. 1 "The machine proposed by Mr. Shuman would be irresistible. With its front wheels measuring
200 feet in diameter, and the weights aggregating many tons dangling down in front from chains, it would plow through a whole town, blotting it out of existence as if it were a mere ant-heap. The wheels would be latticed, so that shot might pass through without destroying them"
Caption fig. 2 "Ordinary rivers and marshes would not stop the machine. Few rivers are more than fifty feet deep. The 200-foot wheels of the machine would dash through them as easily as an automobile through a pool of mud"
