MAX HASN'T THE MUSCLE
With Which to Manipulate a Pair of
Man has always longed to fly like a
bird, and all the ancient attempts a
flight were- based upon the flapping
of wings attached to human arms

t The reason why no man will ever

is that his breastbone is not big

along its middle a deep keel, from
which spring the enormous muscles

keel, only much smaller In propor proportion
tion proportion to the size of the bird, on the
carcass of any chicken or turkey after
the meat has been removed, and the
tender white flesh at the breast is
nothing but the muscles with which
the bird flew when alive. You notice
that even on a chicken, which is one
of the weakest flyers, this flesh forms
the greater part of the body. On a
humming bird there is little else but
this mass of flying muscle In other
words the humming bird is nothing
but a tiny flying machine.
An albatross has a vast spread of
wings, and its small body is little else
but a pair of powerful pectoral mus-
les. These are attached by tendons
o the tone called the humerus,
which is the counterpart of the up-
er arm bone of a man. They spread
out like a solid fan and are fastened
to the breastbone with its deep keel,
to the clavioes, or "wishbone," and
to the ribs. A man's breastbone has
no keel. His humerus, or upper arm
bone, is hinged to the clavicle or col-
arbone and shoulder blade. His pec- ;
toral muscles, which move the arm
forward, and deltoid muscles, which
if t it, are attached to it by strong
tendons and spread fanlike over his
upper chest, being inserted in the
ribs and collarbone. These are the
muscles that do the same work for
man as the pectoral muscles do for a
bird. There are the muscles on
which he would have to rely if he
were to fasten wings to his arms to
try to fly.
Compare these muscles with those
of an albatross and you see how in

EASY TO ANSWER
General Wood asks Congress to
appropriate $3,000,000 for field guns
and ammunition for the regular
army and the same sum for the state
troops. He says:
"If you sent our troops into war
as they are now, without guns or
ammunition, it would be absolute
slaughter. If called into the field
suddenly, we should have to go with
a small allowance of ammunition,
and we should have neither guns nor
ammunition enough for our field ar artillery
tillery artillery forces."
Accepting this statement as true,
the question arises: What have we
been doing with the money that has
been appropriated for the army? Our
army costs between a half and a
third as much as the German army,
which is ten times as large. Xo na nation

Experiences of 31iss Isabel Davis,

On the afternoon of Wednesday,

a. m. the next day. Our trip on to;
Washington was one of unbroken
pleasure and so instructive to me.
We arrived in Washington at 8:45;

Washington has over two ,hun-
dred miles of streets. They are nav
ed with gray asphalt and are as
smooth as a floor. Now we are to
start out sight-seeing. The great
government buildings are often far
apart; it must be a 'full mile from
the White House to the capitol,
which is situated on a high hill to the
east. Farther on we come to the

Here we must stop to take a look at

to meet the speaker of the house, Mr.

and attend the directors meeting, of
which already he had been notified.
In the gallery of the dining-room
modeled after Thane Cedric's banquet-ing-hall
an orchestra discoursed syn syncopated

Midnight approached like the ter termination

and as he determined to slip from his

a diversion that stayed him. By con contrast,

The butler noiselessly approached

minute or two the Man of Iron nodded,

Four men, clad In overalls and jum jumpers,

them a large oblong box. They halted
and upheld it with patent effort while
Mr. Tan Vechten arose and, in his un-

Then a space was cleared in the

diners were disturbed, and the box

Everybody eyed the innovation cu

The box, suggesting as it did the end

one distinguished by its elegant cream-
colored silk-plush covering and pure
rose-gold ornamentation. The long
extension handles were of the same
metal, as was also the name-plate.
Upon this latter was a single engraved
"THE TIME LOCK."
With the injection into the banquet
of an element so sensational and
startling, Rudolph Van Vechten's de desire

unaffected by the excitement that
stirred the rest of the company. But
presently he observed that the inci incident

certain of those present particularly
to his uncle.
Was the whole thing a huge prac practical

The Man of Iron pointed out that
if it was, it must have been an ex expensive

came the suggestion of an infernal
machine, and once more a hush fell
upon the gathering.
These men, however, were not lack lacking
ing lacking in courage. Very cautiously the
casket was removed from the box, the
box was taken away, and the former
was given the place of honor, where
it reposed like a beautiful but unat unattractive
tractive unattractive epergne.
In the silence that accompanied this
operation a distinct ticking sound,
emanating from the casket, was plain plainly
ly plainly audible, and the diners, some of
them overturning chairs in their
haste, recoiled to the walls, where
they stood staring In horror at this
unwelcome prefiguration of the grave.
At this moment a quiet voice vs
heard to say:
"Carefully, gentlemen; a slight jar
might prove disastrous."
The company turned to behold a
man of impressive appearance. He
might have been one of them, though
none had seen him previously that
night. His white hair, his smooth smooth-shaven,

more than natural that he should be

composed, there was no
mistaking the fact that he completely
dominated the situation.
Van Vechten noted that his uncle
recognized the man, and that the Man
of Iron's attitude all at once became
one of tense, alert watchfulness.
With an air that impelled many to
follow his example, the stranger con
sulted his watch; an average declara

He advanced to the table, from
which everybody else shrank as far
as the confines of the vast room per
mitted, and laid a hand upon the
casket. Glancing once more at the
wsitch which he still held in the other
hand, he quietly remarked:
"Gentlemen, this coffin contains
enough willardite to wipe New York
off the map. It is connected with one
of my time-locks, set to detonate the

"No one better than you knows how
