gested. He had expected a dainty,
wholly feminine handwriting and in
this, but only in this, *was he disap-
polnted and when, at last, Miss Man-
son hinted that his period of pro-
bation was about to end, Saunders'
cup overflowed with Joy.
The next development was a card
from Mrs. Shearer for a dinner dance
with "To meet MIss Marietta Man-
son" in one corner. In his exuberance
8unders vowed that he would give
the postman a box og cigars on his
next trip, and then he went out to
order new evening clothes.
The function was a week distant
and Saunders never knew how he
passed the thne. He was one of the I

a perfect 'blur, but as you rise the
objects become clearer. At a height
of one hundFed feet you feel hardly
any motion at all, except for the
wind which strikes your face. If you
did not take the precaution to fasten
your hat before starting, you have
probably lost it 'by this time. The
operator moves a lover; the right
wing rises, and the machine swings
about to the left. You make a very
short turn, yet you do not feel the
_sensation of being thrown from your
seat, so often experienced in auto-
mobile and railway travel. You find
yourself facing toward the point from
which you started.
The objects on the ground now
seem to be moving at much higher
speed, though you perceive no change

face. You know then that you are
traveling with the wind. When you
near the startingpolnt, the operator
stops the motor while still high in
the air. The machine coasts down at
an oblique angle to the ground, and
after sliding fifty or a hundred feet
comes to rest Although the machine
often lands when traveling at a speed
of a mile a minute, you feel no
hook whatever, and cannot, in fact,
tell the exact moment at which It

HOW IT FLIES.
A Description of the Working of the
Wright Brothers* Aeroplane.
In order to show the general read-
er the 'way in which the machine
operates, let us fancy ourselves ready
for the start. The machine is placed
upon a single rail track facing the
wind, and is securely fastened with
a cable. The engine is put in mo-
tion, and the propellers in the rear
whir. You take your seat at the
center of the machine 'beside the op.
orator. He slips the cable, and you
shoot forward. An assistant who has
been holding the machine in balance
on the aill, starts forward with you,
but before you have gone fifty feet
the speed is too great for him, and he
lets go. Before reaching the end of
the track the operator moves the
front rudder, and the machine lifts
from the rail like a kite supported by
the pressure of the air underneath

leakage of gas Indoors Is so slight that It may safely be neg.
| leted or tolerated a cheaper than repairs. Under all condl-
N Lions and In all circumstances 'gas is something to be afraid of.
'iils was true of the coal gas formerly used in New York; it
s to much more true of the water gas now distributed. Coal gas.
made by the distillation of bituminous coal In retorts, contained
from 6 to 7per cent. of carbon monoxide, and a great deal of it
was needed to render air unbreathable. Water gas contains from 30 to 35 per
cent. of carbon monoxide, and very little of It Is immediately injurious and
often quickly fatal. This product of imperfect combustion is the most deadly
gas known to chemistry of those produced commercially. It Is a blood poes-
oner of extraordinary energy. For the hemoglobin, upon which the blood de-
pends for its ability to perform Its functions in the human body, it has an
affnity believed by physiologists to be about four hundred times greater than
that of oxygen. It is a cumulative poison. which In this case means that the
* blood will take up and hold all that it flnd. in air brethod. and continue
absorbing it until, at about two-thirds of saturation, animal life becomes Im-
possib!e. There is no amount of carbon monoxide in inhaled air so small
that the breather can afford to be indifferent to it. In many cases as little as
that one-hundredth of 1 per cent. will produce Immediate Ill effects, and con-
tinued exposure to ev,. this small quantity involves danger to life. It is an
odorless gas, as poisonous as arsenic, as dangerous as a blind rattlesnake,
as Incendlary as gun cotton. It can be detected by the Renso- of smell only
when associated with the naphtha vapors which make it luminous.
For the reasons stated and many others which might be given, a gas leak
known or suspected, however small, should at once be found and corrected.
To use as a night light a gas jet tuiaed low I1 a dangerous habit. It may
be extinguished by a drop of the pressure. or blown .out by an air current.
In either case enough gas will cF,:-pe unburned to put heatth and life in dan-
ger. There are many kinds of night lamps which a;, satfer and better.
Only a fool will look for a gas leak with a lamp, candle or llhted match.
When the nose has approximately located the leak it may be found. If In an
aoceMslble place, by means of a shaving brush and soap suds. When the point
of the leak is covered those xwp will foriq bubbles which break and reform.
This method is safe and infallible. It will find leaks too e-mall to sustainr
A "whistling" gas jet Is a danger signal. It means that more gas is p)ess.

HI kindergarten is going out. For several years past the decline in
attendance on kindergarten classes has been steadily.
Can it be that the supply of tissue paper is becoming ex-
hausted, or that the ingenuity of teachers in inventing new pic-
turesque fairy stoPies is on the wane?
The assertion that the kindergarten idea Isa a fad which has
run its course will of course be received with the usual con-
tempt in highly intellectual circles.
Probably much nearer the truth is that our children are not yet highly
developed enough to appreciate it. It is ahead of the age.
litty years more or so of nature books, t'rerh from the printing-presR
every hour and read aloud from birth, may educate the young mind in time to
he enthusiastic over kindergarten games.
But along with this must come (If any real progress Is possible) the
suppression of a sense of humor among the very young .
To play a game in which slapping the hands on the sides and jumping
up and down from the outside circle to a point in the centre labeled "nest"
-thus conveying the idea of flying-is so irresistibly funny to some four-year-
olds that they fall to appreciate the dignity of the kind. rgarten and its true
value in the psychology of education.
Thus Irreverence creeppe in, and an institution that ought to bt,- more or
less sacred-comlng as It does from the, home of the opera-Is thrown into
undeserved disrepute, and once more we are rvertling to primitive co)ndi.
If the decline '6f the kindergarten continues, we look forward Indeed to
the time when very young bcildren will be strolling around once more in the
open fields, picking real daisies.-ULppincott's.

HAT'VER .makes the poorest people healthy Is good in German
Sees because it insures a strong nation that hereafter is to carry
the power and influence of Germany around the wor!l. What-
ever impairs the physical constitution- of the mas.ies of plop!o
SI is intolerable in Grmuan eyes because it threatens the national
vigor and interfere with Germany's destiny.
Heseafter men may think it stt4nge thatL of all the nation .
on earth the German nation was the onty nation of these times to recognize
adequately and offiolally the obvious fact. of the great chairgvs wrought for
the sons of men by the Introduction of et,%ai and machinery. Fer one thina;
(and most important), the Germans saw that it dr< w huge populations into
,the manufacturing cities, where they speedily became overcrowded and
undervita ised, and It bent them for long hours over such unwLojlesome employ-
ments as would in'ti:ne destroy the riwce if there wt re not compensation in
hours of rest and relaxation amid wholesome surroundings.
Hence, goaded on. no doubt, -by the growth of German Soilalism, the Ger.
man government began to take moot exeelklet care of the working popula-
tio", to provide exact and mirnute regulations concerning the conditions of

An Artist Hero.
Fireman James Dempsoy of Engine
Company No. 32. happening to be at
leisure yesterday on State street
near Washington, was able to give
a neat and almost gaudy exhibition of
the power of imagination when ap.
plied to small details. Mr. Dempsey
perceived a runaway 'horse plunging
toward the crowd of shoppers, unre-
strained by the conventional bridle.
At once he applied himself to the
back of the frightened animal, and
leaning forward thrust bis fingers in-
to its mouth to produce the impres-
sion of its familiar steering apparatus.
Under this Jury rudder, so to speak,
the horse was cleanly turnedI back to
the middle of the F.treet and then
brought to a halt a block further on.
Mr. l rnvpey seems to us not only
a physical hero. but a creative artist
of unusual genius. His kind of Im-
agination has Rider lTaggard'a kind

Britain's Heavy Income Tax.
The British Income tax is not only
the heaviest but the hardest, most
inquisitorial in the world. The three
year average having been done
away, a man now is assessed on his
profits or gains during Qe year of
assessment. The death duties are a
fearful burden on all classes. Since
they were imposed in 1894 they have
yielded over 220 millions of pounds.
Many landed states have paid twice
or three times within five or six
years, with the result that they are
utterly crippled. Pine houses have
gone to ruin, and hundreds of agri
cultural laborers have been thrown
out of employment. For a so-callod
free trade country the duties are very

the keeping of cats as the best means
for the prevention of plague the Jap-

In investigating the number of cart

The result of Investigations made by
the police shows that there are 54,-
389 cats kept In Osaka, a city of
l.50,000 people, the families where
cats are kept ntmnbering 48,.222. In
addition there are 5,696 homeless

Learn to Use the Telephone.
"Only about one person in every
ten knows how properly to use the
telephone," said a district manager
of one of the local companies. '*Ye*.
sir, I'll stand by my guns on that
assertion; and I think I can prove
my point. Nine out of every ten per-
sons talk entirely too loud over the
telephone. They actually shout and
make so much noise that they drown
out all semblance of clearn:sa. Then
they can't hear, and the first thing
you know there Is a comp'aint about
poor connection and faulty service.
The correct way to talk over the tele-
phone is to talk as you do in orli-
nary conversation, or even a trifle
lower. People can't seem to realize
that th9 telephone will carry a whis-
-per even. No, they must talk loud
enough to be heard from Tenth and
Chestnut streets to Germantown. If
* those be the connected points. Just
try yourself. Try tLe low, well-modu-
lated voice, and see if you do not get
infinitely better service out of your
telephone in the future."-Philadel-

would continue to offer an indecent

A Back-Water Town.
"It wa-s one of those sleepy, one-

said Representative Burton, describ-
ing at a Hot Springs dinner a town
that he disliked.
"Squash is the limit. A gentleman
arrived there the other day and
wanted a hair cut. He found the bar-
ber shop, and, after shaking the bir.
ber vigorously, managed to awaken
"'How long will It take you to cut
my hair, barber?' he asked.
"'Not long, bors,' said the barber.
And he rose, yawned and stretched
himself. Then he called upstairs to

touched on Vhe point that no two peo-

the familiar exp. ilence that twenty
eye-witnesses of a street accident will
give twenty widhlely varying accounts
'tf its details. We had an instance of
this recently in the case of the Tot-

observe the extraordinary fact that,
when the D)rucc coffin was opened,
two reporters made hopelessly diver-

very thing that was most interesting.

Birthdays and Health.
For several years I have noticed
that In a period of from asoout three
to two weeks preceding the anniver-
sary of my birth I have had a feeling
of returning vigor, a renewal of vital-
ity such as I have not experienced at
any other time of the year. Tfiis
has lasted for from two to eight days,
but has always ceased some days be-
fore the anniversary. Hence it has
occurred to mie that there may be
some connection between the ap-
proach of the recurrence of one's
birthdate and the maintenance of
one's health.-London Graphic.

The Climate of Yuma.

down into the dentine until the pulp

they reach the nerve of the tooth a

There are three causes behind all

Agents of the government are looking for new supplies of horses unable
for military use. Usually such purchases have been made by contract In the
middle western States, but it is claimed that animals of equally good quality
J can be bought In the east. The dificulty is that such stock has usually been
beld at prices too high to compete with the western growers. It Is a strange
fact that horses raised In the eastern Statos on land valued at not more than
a quarter part of the price of average land in the middle western States are
held at higher prices than western horses. It looks as if there were a chaMce
for a proft somewhere in the future for horse raising on low priced eastem
