cent decision of n Kansas City Court
of Appeals on the noble art of wife
beating. A man went homo ono eve

spirits nnd administered cnrpornl
punishment to his wife. Ho was
convicted of disturbing tho pence.
At the trial the wlfo testified,
though much against her will, being
of a forgiving disposition, as wives

appeal was taken ami tho conviction
set aside, ulnco n wife ennnot bo

Practical application Is what tlys
people are most anxious to know of,
nnd n very interesting paper on this
subject was prepared by Col. J, E.
Capper, C. II., H. E.
Tho well-known expert said that
machines might be used for sport,
for war, for exploration, for com
merce, Including postal service, nnd
for regular long or short distance
transport. He placed sport first, not
because It was most important, but
because comparatively feeble ma
chines might be usefully employed
for spotting purposes, and It was by
encouraging these that progress
might bo made till practical value
could bo obtained from them for
other purposes. Taking dirigible
balloons first, Col. Capper Bald they
appeared of little value for sporting
purposes; being expensive to build
and to house and easily damaged,
tlioy could be the amusement only of
very wealthy people.
The rigid typo would appear most
suitable, and vessels of the largest
capacity would probably have to bo
used, tho design of which would call
for the highest engineering skill and
knowledge of materials. For ex
ploration the balloons must bo per
fect gas holders and have an ample
murgln of lifting power to enablo
them to ovorcomo temporarily rain
or snow storms; their fuel supply
must be large, nnd to be really prnc
tlcnl they should be nblo to pick up
bnllnst fiom tho air to compensate
for drying after heavy rain. For
commercial purposes dirigibles might
conceivably be used in exceptional
cubes for very light nnd valuable
cargoes, but unless very high speed
weie doveloped thero could be no
certainty of their usefulness for tho
postal service, or for the regular
transport of -passengers oxcept n a
country whore railway facilities

have any practical value In that di

ier thnn air, for the Immediate fu
ture their use woutd appear to be
confined to tho role of sport. For
this purpose any machlno capable of
rising from the giound, of sustain

tries. It appeared quite improbablo
that for many years they could be i
used for regular travel with lnrgo
numbers of passengers, nnd It wai
quite prematura to attempt to de
