What Air Ships May Do.
St- Louis, March 7. Special Cor
v respondence to the Evening Post.
In his quiet and thoughtful moments
John has been revolving this air ship
problem in his mind. It is mostly a
revolving problem, anyway, for the
propeller goes round and round, and
so does the air ship. That's th way
the Benbow air ship went. I pre
sume that is what cai ses "circular
insanity" among air-ship inventors.
But I don't consider mvself compe
tent to discuss the air-ship problem.
It is a question that takes ore up
into the clouds, and as John is the on
ly men- be r of the family who "soars"
, and the only one who has a "mech
anical eye" Jane and I were meekly
resigoed to the ordeal of hearing him
expatiate upon it.
"After lookine at the airships that
fly and those that don't fly," raid
John, while we were eating our din
ner, "I have concluded that they are
a big improvement on the automobile.
You see there is a good deal more
room in the sky than there is in the
street, and not so many chances of
collision. If you see a yellow sky de
vil with four large green eyes headed
toward you all you have to do is to
pull lever No. 44, which takes you
into i higher ethereal wave, and glide
right over him.
"If you meet him in the narrow
roadwav in a red gisoline tank you
are liable to bump right into him, or,
if you try to dodge him, you may run
into a fence or slide off a bridge or
down a steep embankment. There
are no barb wire lences in the air
and no bridges, only clouds.
"If you bump into a wireless mes
sage there is no harm done, and when
you get into a cloud you can blow the
toghorn until you get out of it. And
so far as I can see, the air ships use
the same motors as the automobiles,
and the gasoline smell won't kill any
one but the birds, and I think we
have too many English sparrows, any
way. Of course, the time will come
when the air ships will run by elec
tricity taken from the air, ani all the
sky pilot will have to do when the
power is running low in toopen a valve
and Fcoop up a new supply.
"For awhile, until the country
people get used to them, the air
ships will have to fly beyond the
reach of the Farmer's shot-gun. But
if the farmer gets too gay with his
guu it will be an easy matter to dip
dowu and pick up a few of his chick
ens, a cow, or even a horse, and sail
away with them. And it will be easy
to knock down six acres of standing
corn or push over the farmer's
"But when the farmer gets to us
ing the air ships himself he .won't
want to go gunning for them. With
a self-binding reaper suspended from
a cigar shaned balloon he can skim a-
lone the ground and behead a tifty
acre field of wheat in a few hours.
And when the cows gel into the corn
field no need of trying to drive them
out. Just let down a grappling hook
from an air ship and lift them one by
one into the next field- And think
how easy it would be to pull stumps

the Inside Out Inn. "Wonder how
many thousand cubic inches of air he
And just then we decided it was
time to gd over to the Grand Basin
and see the illumination and special
fireworks. We got there just in time.

Leysers of fire from the grand
basin and fiery swans and elephants
walking on the surface of the water,
this was the spectacle that met our
eyes. T. A. DeW.
