It is told that after Professor Ay

to Mis? Emily Jane Wilson, daughter

matter of course, referred to her
father. As the professor was uncom
monly diffident, he said to her:
"Emily, my dear, you must 3peak to

courage to speak to the professor on

There being apparently no help for
lt, the lady proceeded to the library.
"Papa's answer is pinned to the
back of my dress," said Miss Wilson,
as she re-entered the room.
Turning around, the delighted suitoi
read these words:
"With the author's compliments."
BABY'S HAIR ALL CAME OUT
"When my first baby was six
months old he broke out on his head
with little bumps. They would dry
np and leave a scale. Then it would
break out again and it. spread all over
his head. All the hali came out and
his head was scaly all over. Then his
face broke out all over in red bumps
and it kept spreading until it was on
his hands and arms. I bought several
boxes of ointment, gave him blood
medicine and had two doctors to treat
him, but he got worse all the time. He
had it about six months when a friend
told me about Cutlcura. I sent and
got a bottle of Cutlcura Resolvent, a
cake of Cuticura Soap and a box ol
Cutlcura Ointment In three days
after using them he began to improve.
He began to take long naps and to
stop scratching his head. After taking
two bottles of Resolvent, two boxes ol
Ointment and three cakes of Soap he
was sound and well, and never had
any breaking out of any kind. His
hair came out in little curls all ovei
his head. I don't think anything else
would have cured m except Cuticura,
"I have bought Cuticura Ointment
and Soap several times since to use
for cuts and sores and have never
known them to fail to cure what I put
them on. I think Cuticura is a great
remedy and would advise any one to
use it. Cuticura Soap is the best that
I have ever used for toilet purposes."

James "Wilson or Jimmy as he is called
by his friends. Jimmy was rotund and
looked shorter than he really was. His
ambition in life was to be taken seriously,
but people steadily refused to do so. his
art ls considered a huge Joke, except to
himself, if he asked people to dinner ev
eryone expected a frolic. Jimmy marries
Bella Knowles; they live together a year
and are divorced. Jimmy's friends ar
range to celebrate the first anniversary
of his divorce. The party is in full swing
when Jimmy receives a telegram from his
Aunt Selina, who will arrive in four hours
to visit him and his wife. He neglects to
tell her of his divorce. Jimmy takes Kit
into his confidence, he tries to devise
some way so that his aunt will not learn
that he has no longer a wife. He sug
gests that Kit. play the hostess for one
night, be Mrs. Wilson pro tem. Aunt Se
lina arrives and the deception works out
as planned. Jim's Jap servant is taken
ill. Bella. Jimmy's divorced wife, enters
the house and asks Kit who is being ta
ken away in the ambulance? Bella insists
it is Jim. Kit tells her Jim is well and is
.in the house. Harbison steps out on the
porch and discovers a man tacking a
card on the door. He demands an ex
planation. The man points to the placard
and Harbison sees the word "Smallpox"
printed on lt. He tells him the guest"
cannot leave the house until the quaran
tine is lifted. The guests suddenly real
ize their predicament, the women shed
tears, the men consider lt a good joke.
The all important question arises as to
who ls to prepare the meals and perform
the other household duties. Harbison fin
ally solves the matter. After the lifting
of the quarantine several letters are found
in the mall box undelivered, one is ad
dressed to Henry Llewellyn, Iqulque.
Chile, which was written by Harbison.
He describes minutely of their incarcera
tion, also of his infatuation for Mrs. Wil
son. Aunt Selina ls taken ill with la
grippe. Betty acta as nurse. Harbison
finds Kit sulking on the roof. She tells
him that Jim has been treating her out
rageously. Harbison fully believing that
she ls Mrs. Wilson, tells her that she
doesn't mean the things she is saying
about her husband. Kit starts down
stairs, when suddenly she ls grasped in
the arms of a man who kisses her sev
eral times. She believes that Harbison
did lt and ls humiliated. Aunt Selina tells
Jimmy that her cameo breastpin and
other articles of Jewelry have been stoler?.
She accuses Betty of the theft.
CHAPTER Xl. (Continued.)
"I saw you kiss her in the dining
room, remember that!" Aunt Selina
went on, giving the screw another
It was Bella's turn to be excited.
She gave me an awful stare, then she
fixed her eyes on Jim.
"Besides," Aunt Selina went on,
"you told me today that you loved
her. Don't deny lt, James."
Bella couldn't keep quiet another in
stant. She came over and stood at
the foot of the bed.
"Please don't excite yourself, dear
Miss Caruthers," she said, in a voice j
like ice. "Every one knows that he
loves her; he simply overflows with
lt. It-it is quite a by-word among
their friends. They have been sitting
together in a corner all evening."
Yes, that was what she said; when
I had not spoken to Jimmy the whole
time in the den. Bella was cattish,
and she was jealous, too. I turned on
my heel and went to the door; then I
turned to her, with my hand on the

Bald coldly. "You can not possibly
know, having spent three hours in a
corner yourself-with Mr. Harbison."
I abhor Jealousy in a woman.
At midnight the house was fairly
quiet, except for Jim, who kept walk
ing around the halls because he
couldn't pleep. I got up at last and
ordered him to bed, and he had the
audacity to have a grievance with me.
"Look at my situation now!" he
said, sitting pensively on a steam re
dlator. "Aunt Selina ls crazy. I only
kissed your hand, anyhow, and I don't
know why you sat in the den all even
ing; you might have known that Bella
would notice lt. Why couldn't you
leave me alone to my misery?"
"Very well," I said, much offended.
"After this I shall sit witn Flannigan
in the kitchen. He ls the only gentle
man in the house."
I left him babbling apologies and
went to bed, but I had an uncomfort
able feeling that Bella had been a wit
ness to our conversation, for the door
Into Aunt Selina's room closed softly
as I passed.
I knew beforehand that I was not
going to sleep. The instant I turned
out the light the nightmare events of
the evening ranged themselves in a
procession, or a series of tableaux, one
after the other: Flannigan on the
roof, with the bracelet on his palm,
looking accusingly at me; Mr. Harbi
son and the scene on the roof, with
my flippancy; and the result of that
flippancy-the man on the stairs, the
arms that held me, the terrible kisses
that had scorched my Hps-lt was aw
ful! And then the absurd situation
across Aunt Selina's bed, and Bella's
face! Oh, it was all so ridiculous-my
having thought that the Harbison man
was a gentleman, and finding him a
cad, and worse. It was excruciatingly
funny. I quite got a headache from
laughing; indeed 1 laughed until I '
found I was crying, and then I knew I
was going to have an attack of
strangulated emotion, called hysteria.
So I got up and turned on all the
lights, and bathed my face with co
logne, and felt better.
But I did not go to sleep. When
the hall clock chimed two, I discover
ed I was hungry. I had had nothing
since luncheon, and even the thirst
following the South American goulash
was gone. There was probably some
thing to eat In the pantry, and if there
was not, I was quite equal to going
to the basement
I ate bread and butter and drank
milk, and was fast becoming a ra
tional person again; I had pulled out
one of the drawers part way, and
with a tray across the corner I had
improvised a comfortable seat And
then I noticed that the drawer waa
full of soiled napkins, and I remember
ed the bracelet I hardly know why I
decided to go through the drawer
again after Flannigan had already done
lt but I did. I finished my milk and
then, getting down on my knees, I
proceeded systematically to empty the
drawer. I took out perhaps a dosen
napkins and as many dollies without
finding anything. Then I took out a
large tray cloth, and there was some
thing on it that made me look farther.
One corner of lt had been scorched,
the clear and well-defined Imprint of a j
lighted cigarette or cigar, a blackened
streak that trailed off into a brown
and yellow. I hid a queer, trembly
feeling, as If I wc re on the brink of a
discovery-perhaps Anne's pearls, or
the cuff buttons with storks painted
on china in the center. But the only
thing I found, down in the corner of
the drawer, was a half-burned ciga
The Roof Garden.
I was quite ill the next morning
from excitement, I suppose. Anyhow,
I . did not get up, and there wasn't
any breakfast. Jim said he roused
Flannigan at eight o'clock, to go
down and get the fire started, and then
went back to bed. But Flannigan did
not get up. He appeared, sheepishly,
at half-past ten, and by that time
Bella was down, in a towering rage,
and had burned her band and got
the fire started, and had taken up a
tray for Aunt Selina and herself.
As the others straggled down they
boiled themselves eggs or ate fruit,
and nobody put anything away. Lollle
Mercer made me some tea and scorch
ed toast, and brought it. about ll
"I never saw such a house," she de
clared. "A dozen housemaids couldn't
put lt in order. Why should every
man that smokes drop ashes wherever
I he happens to be?"
"That's the question of the ages," I
replied languidly. "What waa Max
talking so horribly about a little
while ago?" Lollle looked up ag
"About nothing at all," she declared,
"Anne told me to clean the bathtubs
with oil, and I did it, that's all. Now
Max says he couldn't gee lt off, and
his clothes stick to him, and if he
should forget and strike a match in

plode. He can clean his own tub to

At noon Jim came in to see me,
bringing Anne as a concession to

"When you are all through discuss

Attempt at Escape Frustrated--Mem
bers of the Four Hundred
Defy the Law.
"'Special Officer McCloud, on duty
at the quarantined house of James
Wilson, artist and clubman, on Nine
ty-fifth street, reported this morning
daring attempt at escape, mad? at
3 a. m. It is in this house that some
eight or nine members of the smart
set were Imprisoned during the course
of a dinner party, when the Japanese
butler developed smallpox. The party
shut in the house includes Miss Kath
erine McNair, the daughter of Theo
dore McNair of the Inter-Ocean sys
tem; Mr. and Mrs. Dallas Brown, the
Misses Mercer, Maxwell Reed, the
well-known clubman and whip, and a
Mr. Thomas Harbison, guest of the
Dallas Browns and a South American.
"'Officer McCloud's story, told to a
Chronicle reporter this morning, is as
follows: The occupants of the house
had been uneasy all day. From the
air of subdued bustle, and from a care
ful inspection of the roof, made by the
entire party during the afternoon, his
suspicion had been aroused. Nothing
unusual, however, occurred during the
early part of the night. From eight
o'clock to twelve McCloud was re
lieved from duty, his place being
taken by Michael Shane of the Eighty
sixth street station.
" 'When McCloud came on duty at
midnight, Shane reported that about
ll o'clock the searchlight of a steamer
on the river, flashing over the house,
had shown a man crouching on the
parapet, evidently surveying tho roof
across, which at this point is only 12
feet distant, with a view of making
his escape. On seeing Shane below,
however, he had beat a retreat, but
not before the officer had seen him
distinctly. He was dressed In evening
clothes and wore a light tan o>er
" 'Officer McCloud relieved Shane at
midnight, and sent for a plain-clothes
man from the station house. This man
was stationed on the roof of the Bev
ington residence next door, with strict
injunctions to prevent an escape from
the quarantined mansion. Nothing
suspicious having occurred, the man
on the roof left about 3 a. m., report
ing to McCloud below that everything
was quiet. At that moment, glancing
skyward, one of the officers was as
tounded to see a long narrow board
project itself from the coping of the
Wilson house, waver uncertainly for
a moment, and then advance stealth
ily toward the parapet across. When
lt was within a foot or two of a rest
ing place, McCloud called sharply to
the invisible refugee above, at the
same time firing his revolver in th?

board stopped, trembled, swayed a lit

officer by a hair's breadth, and crash

A ?AVAL A//? ftfin. yss/pt^cf - A yjj/o/f
THIS ls going to be the biggest
year yet for aviation. Not
only In America and Europe,
but In far-off countries like
Japan air craft are being built
oy the hundreds and scores of exhibi
tions are planned for the next few
months. In this country and in Eu
rope alone a total of more than $1,500,
000 ls offered in prizes for aviators.
No such wonderful progress in a new
means of transportation has ever been
witnessed In the world before. The
flying machine Is coming into general
use more than twice as rapidly as did
the automobile. Although travel by
land and water will not be rivaled by
travel in the air for many years to
come, yet the airship ls likely to out
strip all other methods of rapid trans
portation within the next year or so.
America ls still far behind Europe,
both in the giving of prizes and the
flying of machines. This, however, ls
not likely to continue to be the case.
Not even France is showing more ac
tivity in aviation than America ls be
ginning to. The list of prizes that are
open for competition thus far this
year in America totals almost $500,
000. Under the auspices of the Chi
cago Aero club, there will be a tour
nament that in the wealth of its prizes
and the distinction of its contestants
will exceed anything the world yet has
seen. The most expert of pilots will
be In charge and the mest famous of
inventors will there meet in contest.
The prizes are fixed at a minimum of
$200,000. At the very first meeting of
the club, called by Harold F. McCor
mick, $80,000 was subscribed, and
since then the total originally desig
nated has been made up.
Like all the other contests of this
year, it will be a cross-country meet
that ls, it will be a long-distance affair
and not merely an exhibition. It will
be utilitarian, and nothing will be per
mitted in the way of competition that
will ?ot have for its intent the evolu
tion of the science of aviation. The
Chicago Aero club In this particular is
following closely the lines laid down
by the Aero Club of America, which
has for its basic principle the making
of mere sport subsidiary to utility and
advancement. Hence lt is that lt has
enlisted hundreds of thousands of cap
ital contributed by men whose eco
nomic genius forbids a questioning of
the correctness of their foresight
These men do not fly machines. But
at their desks they write out the
checks that stimulate "pilots" and in
cite Inventors to their best efforts.
They pay the expenses, precisely as
"the grocery men" in the days of the
Argonauts "grub-staked" the pros
pectors for gold and other precious
Among the other prizes that will be
competed for this summer is that of
fered by the Automobile Club of Amer
ica, motor reliability, $1,000. Then
there is the $15,000 prize offered by
Edwin Gould for the most perfect and
practical heavier-than-air flying ma
chine designed and equipped with two
or more separate motors and propell
ers so connected that they may be op
erated Individually or together. There
are two big prizes for long flights.
One of these ls $50,000 for a flight
across the continent, and the other
$30,000 for a flight from New York to
In England the biggest prize that
has been hung up thus far this year
is for the 1,000-mile race around Great
Britain, and the winner's purse is $50,
000. On the continent the French
government's competition for military
aeroplanes has $240,000 In prizes. The
prizes at miscellaneous meets and cir
cuits in Germany, Italy, Russia and
Belgium amount to $150,000. There
are many big individual events. All
over the world th? story ls the same.
They are having aviation meets in
Hawaii, in China, in Japan, in Aus
tralia, in India, and even down in
Almost as Important as getting the
right sort of motor is the finding of
the secret of automatic stability of
aeroplanes. More has been learned in
the last twelve months about the
swirls and turmoils that beset the nav
igator In the fields of air than ever
was known before. But the aero
plane will have to become a steady,
well-balanced machine under varying
conditions before lt can surpass the
automobile In popularity and general
use. Many devices ar? being tried to
ar r/ss nsr?//?r
accomplish this end. There is no
doubt that the problem will be solved
satisfactorily before long, and that tho
annual death roll of the aeronauts will
be cut down considerably.
A great many enthusiastic people
have been urging their governments
to stop building battleships and spend
their millions for air craft They have
pointed out that for the cost of one
Dreadnaught an aerial fleet that
would darken the sky could be con
structed. In fact, the nations of the
world are feverishly preparing for aer
ial warfare. Great as has been the
rivalry between the great powers to
build and equip battleships, the rivalry
between them for mastery of the air
is fully as keen. Even the United
States has caught the fever and within
a few months expects to have 150 aer
oplanes under Its command. The last
congress appropriated $125,000 for the
purchase and building of aeroplanes
for naval and military purposes. The
aerial corps is already under organiza
tion and the most noted aviators in
the United States are now commis
sioned officers in lt The Aerial corps
of the regular army has been seeing
some service during the maneuvers
still under way in the southwest and
have done scout duty for the marching
The air of the United States will be
full of machines during the summer.
As in the old days, the nation relied
for its fighting sailors upon the sea
faring men of the New England coast;
in these later times it must rely upon
the citizen aviator to aid in manning
its machines In the event of a conflict.
In Europe the military use of the
aeroplane ls well recognized. Russia
has given orders for the purchase of
300 warplanes of the latest type. Ger
many has anywhere from thirty to
fifty dirigibles and a ?core of aero
planes carefully guarded In her mili
tary department. England is nerv
ously arming with warplanes, that she
may be able to defend the air as she
has long held the water. Italy is
strong in the fighting potentiality of
these new creatures.
A first-class steel warplane costs
$7,500 in the open market The mod
ern battleship costs nearly $10,000,000,
so that the cost for one battleship a
good-sized fleet of aerial craft might
be assembled. In France the manufac
turers are behind with their orders.
They have been swamped with orders
during the past few months and have
enough now to keep them busy for a
