"Ward made three ascensions. All
of them were dandies. C. J. Horton,
his chief mechanician, estimated that
he roe at least 1.500 feet, but it hard hardly
ly hardly seemed that much to the crowd as
it noted the case with, which the Cur Curtiss
tiss Curtiss biplane bored its way aloft in
wide, spirals.
Scurrying around among the high-

4 soaring buzzards seemed to amuse

Ward-, for he chased the birds away
from the field before he came down.

Then throttling down his engine, he
would start on long spiral slants to

ward the earth, holding the engine in

reserve until tie was within a couple
of hundred feet of the earth.

Throwing the planes up into the air,
he would then scamper around the

course on the zou-root level, careening

over on the curves like a catboat In a

high wind.

His "banking" on the curves was

beautiful, though he took'many a long

chance that a less daring aviator
would have shirked in sticking direct directly
ly directly over the half-mile track when
rounding the curves at high speed.

The writer has seen aviators who flew

much wider in rounding mile tracks
than Ward did yesterday on a half half-mile
mile half-mile circle.
As he went around the sharp turn
his machine slanted at an angle of

fully thirty-five degrees.

For thp moments he hung thus sus suspended,
pended, suspended, seeming to stand almost still,
though probably running forty-five
miles an hour, the crowd held its
breath.
As he completed the circuit and
swung out on the straightway again
the sigh that went up from the grand
stand showed the rapt attention In
which the aviator had been held. Per-
haps three-quarters of the erowd
looked to see him fall as he made
those sharp turns.

. But Ward, albeit one of the most
reckless skyriders, is also one of the
most skillful and knew what he was
about.
His sturdy little Curtiss machine is
built to stand heavy strains and so
long as the machine held together
there was not so much danger for him
as there was, perhaps, for some of
the motorcyclists who had been scur scurrying
rying scurrying over the track ahead of him.
If anything had broken but what's
the use of talking about that?
The fate of Ely, and of Molssant
and of Johnstone skilled men and
good fellows is too recent for specu speculation.
lation. speculation. Ward made three flights and was
in the air probably twenty minutes in

all. btarting his machine at the wo woman's
man's woman's building, he ran straight down
the track and rose into the air di directly
rectly directly !n front of the grand stand,
waving his hand at the crowd as he
went up. The starts were so gradual
and he went into the air so easily that
it seemed hard to "believe he could
raise so high.
"What a young fellow he Is," was
the general comment as he passed the
stand.

It was perfectly justified, for Ward
is not more than twenty-one and one

of the youngest men in the business.
Perfectly cool and collected, a mas master
ter master of his engine and thoroughly aware
of what his flyer will do and will not
do the lad is one of the best flyers in
the country today. His exhibition was
a marvelous showing of what has been
done in the way of perfecting the fly flying
ing flying machine In the three short years
the device has been known.
Ward uses the Curtiss biplane and
,the machine is hl3 own, the sum of

$3,000 having been passed over to the
Curtiss company. Though not gener generally
ally generally known, both Curtiss and the

Wright brothers are making machines
and selling them commercially just as
automobiles are sold, though not so
generally by- any means. Still, at
$5,000, there is a nice little profit in
the sale of the machines.
The machine which flew yesterday
has a wing spread of twenty-six feet
six inchen and weighs about 800
pounds. Ward will not add more than
120 more to the machine. It is ex exclusively
clusively exclusively a racing machine but will
earry passengers on a pinch, though

the bigger machines with a forty-foot
spread of wing are much safer when

it comes to a passenger-carrying stunt.
Unlike the Wright machine, the Cur Curtiss
tiss Curtiss has but one propeller. It was the
propeller of a French war machine
that brained the French minister of
war at a big military meet in France
last spring, and Chief Mechanician C.
J. Horton. who has the task of start starting
ing starting the big blades, Is very careful In Indeed
deed Indeed to duck out of the way once the
gasoline Is sending power into the big
wind screw.
So powerful is the screw that It Is
as much as .three men can do to hold
back the machine until Ward gives
the word to "let er go."
Then down the course it spins with

a clatter of gasoline exhausts running

perhaps 200 feet and attained a speed
of twenty miles an hour or more be

fore Ward tilts the planes a bit and

slants the machine Into the upper air.

"Seems as if somebody would have
thought of that before," said one who
saw the flights and marveled at the
ease with which man went into the

air.

So long as the engine runs steadily

and the aviator does not try any
tricks there is little danger in the
air, but if the engine stops trouble
starts at once, for the only safety is
in speed. The machine is a good
ideal heavier than air and once speed

of an engine stopping is to come down

is the safer in such a case. The ma machine

Spirals before the ground is reached

Those two very capable papers, the

Miami Herald and the Pensacola News,
express the following thinks, which j
the Star is glad to reproduce, as they i
are on a line with Its own opinions:
The Pensacola News very properly
and very pointedly points out the
evils in the growing custom of mak making:
ing: making: indiscriminate arrests.
It says it is all right to "swat the
vagrant" when you are certain that he ;
Is vagrant.
. The News points out also that many
men who are In the state seeking
work, are in danger from the indiscre
tion exhibited by our police officers, j
and that a reckless administration of
the .police powers will lead, not only
to Injustice, but to a very great in-
Jury to the state.
The-Herald a few days ago gave an
account, of an Incident that occurred
In Pensacola, where a newly married
couple were awakened In the middle
of the night and escorted to Jail on
telegraphic advice to the chief of po police.

ted no greater wrong than to select
each other as husband and wife, with- j

prisoned on no warrant, but under the
assumed powers of a police depart
ment. .
We have had experiences, this last
few months. In this county of persons j
wholly without fault, being arrested
and incarcerated In the Jail on the
suspicions of the police department
of the state.
The power is exercised all too fre frequently
quently frequently and with, altogether too much
freedom.
The time is coming when some in-1
nocent person thus dealt with and ex
asperated at the treatment that be has
received, will sue for large damages
for his unlawful detention, and there
Is not a freedom loving Jury in the

WATTERSO X SAYS DEMOCRATS
ARB SURE TO WIX
In Atlanta Monday, Col. Henry Wat-
terson, editor of the Louisville Courier-
Journal, expressed the view that the
republican party is hopelessly divid
ed and can elect neither Taf t nor
Roosevelt In 1912. Mr. "Watterson said:
"The election of Roosevelt, abrogat
ing the third-term tradition, would be
a step toward absolutism. If Roose
velt Is put In the White House In 1912
we will never get him out again ex
cept feet first. It seems to me that.
the republicans being hopelessly divid

CHAPTER IX.
AS BFTWEEX A MAN A5D A WOMAN.
IT was Satan's inexhaustible energy
and good spirits that most im impressed
pressed impressed them. His teeth seemed
perpetually to ache with desire,
and in lieu of black legs he husked the
cocoanuts that fell from the trees in
the compound, kept the enclosure clear
of intruding hens, and made a hostile
acquaintance itb every boss boy who
came to report.
Christian Young sailed away in the
Minerva, carrying an invitation (that
uwould be delivered nobody knew when)
rto Tommy Jones to drop in at Berande
the next time he was passing.
"What are your plans when you get
to Sydney?" Sheldon cslied that night
at dinner.
"First I've heard that I'm going to
Sydney," Joan retorted. "I suppose
you've received information, by bush
telegraph, that that third assistant un understrapper
derstrapper understrapper and ex-sailorman at Tulagi
Is going to deport me as an undesirable
Immigrant."
"Oh, no. nothing of the sort, I assure
you," Sheldon began with awkward
haste, fearful of having offended,
though he knew not how. "I was just
wondering, that was all. You see, with
the loss of the schooner and and all
the rest you understand I was think thinking
ing thinking that if a if hang it ail, until
you could communicate with your
friends, my agents at Sydney conld ad advance
vance advance you a loan, temporary you see,
why I'd be only too glad and all the
rest, you know. The proper"
But his jaw dropped and he regarded
her irritably and with apprehension.
"What is the matter?" he demanded,
with a show of heat. "What have I
done now?"
"Certainly not the unexpected," she
said quietly. "Merely ignored me in
your ordinary, everyday, man god, su superior
perior superior fashion. Naturally it counted
for nothing, my telling you that I had
no idea of going to Sydney. Go to
Sydney I must, because you. in your
superior wisdom, have so decreed."
She paused and looked at him curi curiously,
ously, curiously, as though he were some strange
breed of animal.
"Of course I am grateful for your
offer of assistance; but even that is no
salve to wounded pride. For that
matter, it is no more than one white
man should expect from another.
Shipwrecked mariners are always
helped along their way. Only this
particular mariner doesn't need any
help. Furthermore, this mariner Is
not going to Sydney, thank you."
"But what do you intend to do?"
"Find some spot where I shall
scape the indignity of being patron patronized
ized patronized and bossed by the superior sex."
"Come now, that is putting it a bit
too strongly." Sheldon laughed, but
the strain in his voice destroyed the
effect of spontaneity. "You know
yourself how impossible the situation
Is."
"I know nothing of the sort, sir.
And if it is Impossible, well, haven"t
I achieved it?"
"But it cannot continue. Really"
"Oh, yes, it can. Having achieved
it, I can go on achieving it. I intend
to remain In the Solomons, but not on
Berande. Tomorrow I am going to
take the whaleboat over to Pari Pari-Sulay.
Sulay. Pari-Sulay. I was talking with Captain
Young about it. He says there are at
least four hundred acres, and every
foot of it good for planting. First,
I'll buy the island; next, get forty or
fifty recruits and start clearing and
planting; and at the same time I'll
run up a bungalow; and then you'll
be relieved of my embarrassing pres presencenow
encenow presencenow don't say that it isn't."
"It is embarrassing." he said bluntly.
"But you refuse to see my point of
view, so there is no use in discussing it.
Now please forget all about it and con consider
sider consider me at your service concerning
this this project of yours. Suppose
the government sells you Pari-Sulay at
a pound an acre, clearing will cost you
at least 4 more that is, 5 for 400
acres, or, say, $10,000. Have you that
much?"
"No; I haven't quite $S,000."
"Then here's another way of looking
at It: You'll need, as you said, at least
fifty boys. Not counting premiums,
their wages are $30 a year.".
"I pay my Tahitians $15 a month."
she interpolated.
"They won't do on straight plantation
work. But to return. The wages of
fifty boys each year will come to 300
that Is, $1,500. Very well. It will be
seven years before your trees begin to
bear. Seven times $1,500 is $10,500
more than you possess, and all eaten
up by the boys wages, with nothing
to pay for bungalow, building, tools,
quinine, trips to Sydney and so forth."
Sheldon shook his head gravely.
"You'll have to abandon the idea."
"But I won't go to Sydney," she
cried. "I simply won't. I'll buy in
to the extent of my money as a small
partner in some other plantation. Let
me buy it in Berande?"
"Heaven forbid!" he cried in such
genuine dismay that she broke into
hearty laughter.
"There, I won't tease you. Really,
you know, I'm not accustomed to
forcing my presence where It is not
desired. Yet as you said yourself, it
was impossible for me to go away, so
I had to stay. You wouldn't let me
go to Tulagi You compelled me to
force myself upon you. But I won't
buy in as partner with, any one. I'll
buy Pari-Sulay, but I'll put only ten
boys on it and clear slowly. Also,
I'll invest In some old ketch and take
out a trading license. For that mat matter,
ter, matter, IH go recruiting on Malaita."
She looked for orotest and found it

in Sheldon's clenched hand ana ia
every line of his clean cut face.
"Go ahead and say it." she chal challenged.
lenged. challenged. "Please don't mind me. I'm
I'm getting used to it. you know know-Really
Really know-Really I am."
"I wish I were a woman so as to
tell you how preposterously insane and
impossible it i.V he blurted out.
"Better than that, you are a man.
So there is nothing to prevent your
telling me. for I demand to be con considered
sidered considered as a man. 1 didn't come
down here to trail my woman's skirts
over the Solomons. Please forget that
I am accidentally anything else than
a man with a man's living to make.
"I have told you," he began stiffly,
"that recruiting on Malaita is impos impossible
sible impossible for a woman and that is all I
care to say or dare."
"And I tell yon. in turn, that it is
nothing of the sort. 1 am a naviga navigator,
tor, navigator, and that is more than your Solo Solomons
mons Solomons captains are. And I am a sea seamana
mana seamana better seaman than you, when
it comes right down to it and you
know it. 1 can shot. I am not a
fool. I can take care of myself."
Sheldon made a hopeless gesture.
"That's right," she rattled on. "Wash
your hands of me. But as Von used to
say. 'You just watch my smoke!' I sup suppose
pose suppose you've been accustomed to Jane
Eyres all your life. That's why you
don't understand me. Come on, Satan:
let's leave him to his old music."
He watched her morosely and with without
out without intention of speaking, till he saw
her take a rifle from the stand, exam examine
ine examine the magazine and start for the
door.
"Where are you going?" he asked
peremptorily.
"As between man and woman," she
answered, "it would be. too terribly or
indecent for. you to tell me why 1
shouldn't go alligatoring. Good night.
Sleep well."
He shut off the phonograph with a
snap, started toward the door after
her. then abruptly flung himself into a
chair.
"You're hoping a 'gator catches me,
aren't you?" she called from the veran veranda,
da, veranda, and as she went down the steps
her rippling laughter drifted tantaliz tantaliz-inerlv
