ITS AERIAL WAY
Immense Airship Purchased by Unit United
ed United States, Expected to Soon Leave
. England for America
l Associated Press
Washington, Aug. 4. The monster
British built naval dirigible ZR-2 will
said from England August 25 for its
station at Lakehurst, N. J., the nay
department announced today.
Description of the Dirigible
Uncle Sam will soon become the
possessor of the British-built R-38,
the largest rigid airship yet construct constructed
ed constructed in any country and a craft that
represents the very "last word" in
"aerial dreadnought" designing.
Trim and smart as the quarter-deck
of an admiral's flagship, the R-38,
soon to be designated officially by her
new American name, ZR-2, is claimed.
to be the most formidable craft ever
' to "take the air."
' She is expected to be capable of
5000 miles' flight at full speed 70
miles per hour or 6500 miles at a
"cruising speed" of 60 miles per hour.
Her specifications call for an arma armament
ment armament of 14 Lewis guns, a one-pound
automatic glin. four bombs of 520
pounds v and eight bombs of 230
pounds. The machine guns are dis distributed
tributed distributed at vantage points so that
any form of attack, from land, sea or
air, might effectually be combatted.
The ship's heavy armament serves
as an index to her character. She is
designed to serve, if occasion arises,
as the general headquarters of a
whole battle fleet, eyes, ears and, in
emergency, an auxiliary "business
end." From the compact, convenient
"skipper's" cabin close up under her
nose to the neat little machine machine-gunner's
gunner's machine-gunner's "nest" at the very tip of her
stern, ZR-2's arrangement and' con construction
struction construction spells efficiency and "strict "strictly
ly "strictly business." j
Without extensive alterations ZR-2
could not accommodate comfortably
a party of 65 persons as did the
Italian-built, semi-rigid airship the
"Roma" after being- taken over by the
American government recently. But
if a submarine were sighted, ZR-2
could manoeuver into position, then
the mere pressing of a button in the
captain's control cabin would; release
a bomb, or a dozen bombs, if required,
to "do in"., the enemy undersea boat.
If enemy airplanes became bother bothersome
some bothersome 'during this procedure, they
would not find, as was the case with
the German Zeppelins, that there was
an unprotected spot under the ZR-2's
lower part aft where they could hover
and pump machine-gun bullets into
her gasoline tanks. To meet just such
a contingency there is the stern
machine-gun nest, one situated some
50 yards ahead on the underpart of
the ship, and one in each of four of
the ship's engine cars, which are
suspended at her sides.
Should the attack come from above,
a gunner, protected from the fury of.
high altitude winds in a cockpit at the
top of the ship, would probably be
able to do anything necessary with
his one-pound automatic piece.
These represent some of the many
improvements, indicated by examina examination
tion examination of wrecked-Zeppelins and other
experience, which have been incor incorporated
porated incorporated in the ZR-2.
Seen in flight, the ZR-2 will be much
like her sister-ship R-34, of trans trans-Atlantic
Atlantic trans-Atlantic fame. But her shimmering
sides and clean appearance conceal a
confusion of "interior workings" that,
to one unaccustomed to such craft, is
-most bewildering. :
As one proceeds along the narrow,
"man-high" corridor, which extends
the entire length of the ship, he sees
a complication of criss-crossed alum aluminum
inum aluminum girders rows of gasoline and
water tanks, what seems to be, and
actually are, acres of fabric gas bags,
and a miscellany of guy wires, control
valves, pipes, swivels, hinges and
gew-gaws that defy understanding.
But after a guide who knows every
inch of the gigantic ship has made ex explanations,
planations, explanations, the handling of the ship
is seen to be simplicity itself.
' Thus, the "skipper," standing at
the wheel in his cabin, just as a sea
captain on the bridge has within
reach a miscellany of buttons, levers
and switches,, electrically controlled,
with which he can release ballast wa water,
ter, water, deflate one or more gas-bags,
empty his gasoline tanks, start a
bomb towards an objective and, of
course, steer the ship upward, down-
" ward, to right or left.
He can send orders through a tele telephone
phone telephone system which connects up the
whole ship, for the starting or stop stopping
ping stopping of one or all of the ship's six
propelling engines, advise his machine
gunners of the approach of an enemy
or, through the operator at his back,
send observations by wireless to a
flagship or land base.

' It is evident, that tho' the culture
of the orange and other citrus fruit is
the leading industry! of Florida, very
few people, except those engaged in
the work, have an adequate idea how
complicated it is. Forty years ago,
Henry Ward Beecher said, improving
, on Greeley, "Young !man, go South ;
plant an "orange grove in Florida and
in five y,ears you can live on it while
laying up a competence for your old
age and preparing an estate for your
children." Beecher's advice is better
now than it was then, for the science
of citrus culture has doubled or
tripled. Yet, tho we have seen thou thousands
sands thousands of orange groves grow from
I sprouts to forests, we did not realize
how complicated the work was until
yesterday, when we accompanied Mr.
Alison Wartmann to his nursery east
of the city. Mr. Wartmann and his
father have out there a large tract of
high hammock land, good for citrus
culture, but Mr. W. D. Cam possessing
adjoining them a field pecularly fitted
tor a nursery, Mr. Alison Wartmann
has leased it. His tiny sour stock,
raised, from the beat seed obtainable
was coming up under strips of can canvas,
vas, canvas, and looked very much like cotton
two or three; days old, but they will
grow very slowly in comparison with
any vegetable. The time ior ? our
, amazement came when Mr. Wartmann
told us there were probably 150,000
sprouts in that little field, and that
when they attained the proper growth
he would take them up, pick out the
best and set out about 100,000 on ten
acres 10,000 to the acre. A little
street is as smooth and level as any
thoroughfare in the town, with earth
embankments along its entire length
to hold the water. to its course when
heavy rains come. Mr. Martin is to
be highly commended for the work he
has done, and the property owners in
that section are extremely grateful
for the results accomplished.

One of the satisfying developments to trie growers who
have faith in the co-operative method of marketing has
been the very substantial growth of the Florida Citrus
Five years ago the Florida Citrus Exchange, then
seven years old, marketed nineteen per cent of the
citrus, crop of Florida, The preceding period marked the
experimental stage of its development.
Last season the Florida Citrus Exchange handled
slightly more than thirty-three per cent of the carioad ship shipments

Ftertker, the season marked a new epo6k wt (he c

bulwark for co-operation among the citrus growers. The
Polk Qnmty crop last season fell short of that of the pre previous

made a substantial gain in total sMpmests, because it3 vd vd-ume

Polk County's fovaltr to the co-oyeruiive movi

do other progressive sections of the citrus area. The Esst

"Give my jewelry and things to

back.! Then the arms of the Honor Honorable
able Honorable Mr. Vane received me. The
strong rowers bent their backs and
the boat shot out over the mile or two
of bright water between us and. the
Island. Great slow swells lifted us.
We dipped with a soothing, cradle cradle-like
like cradle-like motion. I forgot to be afraid, in
the delieht of the warm wind that
fanned -our cheeks, of the moonbeams
that on the crest of every ripple were
splintered to a thousand ; dancing
lights. I forgot fear, forgot Miss Hig-elesbv-Browne.
forgot the harshness
of the Scotch character.
J "Oh, glorious, glorious I" ,1 cried to
Cuthbert Vane. 1
"Not so dusty, eUT he came back
in their ridiculous English slang. Now
an American would have said: "Some

-hare our points of superiority.
All around the island white charg charging
ing charging lines of breakers foamed on rag ragged
ged ragged half -seen reefs. Now our boat
felt the lift of the great shoreward
rollers, and sprang forward like a liv
ing thing. The other boat, empty of
all but the rowers and returning from
the island to the ship, passed us with
a hail. We were in the little bay un under
der under the shadow of the frowning cliffs.
At the head o:f the bay, a quarter
of a mile away, lay a broad white
beach shining tinder the moon. At
the edge of dark woods beyond a fire
burned redly. It threw into relief the
black moving shcipes of men upon the
sand. .-. j
Straight for the sand the sailors
drove the boat She struck it with a
jar, grinding forward heavily. The
men sprang overboard, wading half-
way to the waist. And the arms of
the Honorable Cuthbert Vane had
snatched me up and were bearing me
safe and dry to shore.
Mr. Shaw approached and the two
men greeted each other In their off offhand
hand offhand British way. As we couldn't
well, under the circumstances, main

Mr. Shaw, with a certain obvious hes

"And indeed that was almost a

John's Wife and
By WILLIAM FALL
(6k 111. Weaters Newspaper Uiuub.)
John Croft had written to his wife
and dropped the letter down the mail
chute. She had been gone three
weeks, but she had communicated
with him twice during that period so
that the breach between the ui was not
Irrevocable. That morning her second
letter had come, and now that be had j
answered, it he took it up and began
reading it again.
"Dear John, she wrote. "1 have
been thinking a good deal during our
separation and have come to the
conclusion that neither of us is fo j
much to blame for our disagreements i
as the other thinks. It is our life in
the city, John, the rush of work, the
cramped quarters, the killing of the
romance of life by the sordid struggle
for existence, John, shall we try again
and see If we cannot be kinder to each j
John Croft had come to the city j
from the country, like so many coun- j

He was twenty then, and Mildred
Carter had told him that she would
wait for him, if need be, forever. They
had been sweethearts for three years j
and neither had leen in love before. ;
And Mildred waited, though the wait
was long. Year by year John Croft
had struggled vainly, hopelessly, until
his sudden recognition came. Then
he had quarried.
At last his wife and he had resolved
upon a temporary separation. It was
not to be permanent; they were too
sincerely fond of each other to dream
of anything like that. Rather it was
to be a period of adjustment in which,
each, alone, could examine his and
her heart and see wherein the of offense

days. Why, then, should he not go

Clayton, he said.
No sooner had the posted that let letter

ing overwhelming in Its insistence. He thrust a few
things into his suitcase, descended in
the elevator, hailed a taxlcab, and was
on his way to the station.
Ten minutes later he was seated in
his car, watching the flying landscape
as the train steamed through the
pleasant country on its way toward
the little Pennsylvania village.
It was six hours' run. Croft's heart
was beating fast when at last, well
toward sundown, the train slowed
down and ran into the little station.
He made his way down the vHlage
street under the long shadows of the
It was a long street, and before he
had reached the end the sun had set.
The gracious twilight of spring shroud shrouded
ed shrouded all things in mystery. The place
had not changed at ail. He might have
been returning thither from college.
All sense of the intervening years had
left him. At last he was standing at
the bottom of Mildred's garden.
"Mildred!" he called.
Then his heart pounded violently in
his breastjis he saw a slim figure in
a sunbonnet start out of the house and
move toward him with the old. leis leisurely

her until he died.
- "Mildred!" he cried and then he had
clasped her In bis arms and her heart
was beating against his own. And
for a long time they forgot everything,
save that they two stood there to together

"John, dear," she whispered, raising
her head and looking Into his eyes.
"It has been all a mistake, hasnt
it? It was the city that killed our
love. Dear, you don't know how hap happy

"Dear," he said softly, "I want you

Triumph of Truth.
A merchant had advertised for a
boy. Late in the afternoon a red redheaded,
headed, redheaded, freckle-faced, blue-eyed, honest-looking
boy applied for the job.
, "Do you like to work?" asked the
"No, sir," replied the boy.
"Then you can have the Job," re replied

boy who's been here today who didn't
lie about it and say yes."

for you to wind up your affairs."
Not Passionately Fond.
"Is your wift fond of flowers?"
"I don't think so. I simply cant

Matching Up Sable Skins.
In The critical eyes of the furrier

For Instance, it takes hundreds of
sable skins to make a lot? g wrap, and
because the fur on the under side oi
the animal is always thin:., r lan ea
