D. H. Means, formerly clerk of
the sinking fund commission bos
written a long Jetter to the State

Gintt earnestly requested him to say

snowed what was due the state either
by Mr. Gantt or by tho people. Mr.
Gantt one-e brought him that hook cut
of the sc cretary of state's office and

put it in a place thought to ba safe

Long life and success to the farm
The young man on the farm who is
tempted to go to the town or city,
giving up a subitantial certainty for
doubtful prospects, would do well to
consider the truth expressed in these
lines. The farmer's life is the most
independent, and is beset with less
temptations than any other. 11 is the
nearest to nature and the farthest
away from the degenerating artificial
ities of the modern world. It is be
cause of this artificiality and Its false
standards that the ten dollar a. week
clerk, who may be fired any nay and
not be able to pay his laundry bill, is
led to consider himself the superior of
r.he strong, Sun browned harvester
who gathers his cropg on his own land.

account of the deed. The attempted
robbery to"* dace on tne night of
February 0, 1901, and the cllijial ac

Girl in Wrontr 1'lace.
A dis-pitch from Atlat.ta says Flor
ence Kergassner, a 15 year-old girl of
Lexington, Ky., who came toAtianta
some time a^o and ha* been working
in a bag factory is held at the police
station in care of the matron until
some satisfactory disposition cf the
girl can be made. The girl was ta
ken into custody while dlieers were
investigating a row at a boarding
house on lower Decatur street,
woich is said to have been caused by
an attempt of a young man to hug
the girl. This provoked anger among
st me of the male hoarders and a gen
eral row was the rcsu'.t. After hear
ing ali the evidence the recorder de
cided it would be best to send the
girl back to Lexington. The evi
dence was to the effect that the
boarding house was. hardly the right
place for the girl.
MAN TO FLY LIEB BIRD.
Prcfifrasor Bell Says It Has Beep
Done in Not? Scotia.
Minkind Isalrcaly on % he threshold
of aerial trans portat.ou b- b- dies
heavier tr.an the air, said Alexander
Graham Bell, of Washington.
"It miy corre in a few months or a
few yean; indeed, we are beginning
to do it now, I am speaking, not
simply of my own tfi rts but of the
work or all investigators. P;rsnnally
I do not care whu dues it, so tnat it It
Publicity has not previously been
given to the feature of bis late re
sults, which Mr. Bell regards most
significant. This reurt is success in
making a kitelike mechanism, unat
tached by a rope, moving alone In the
air and devoid of any engine of pro
pulsion sail forward against the wind
and rise while so doing. The rigid
wing flight of the larger birds is a
performance of this very nature, ana
the result led Mr. Boll to remark:
''Man will In due time be able to
soar very much after the manner of
tbe eagle, which utilizes the energy
of the wind, against which it flies for
its own propulsion, without using its
muscles other than dlrectlvely. I
presume that the practical employ
ment of an engine or self propelled
flying mechanism will come first before
mm trust thcm.u lves to a soaring de
vice but in the coming perfecting of
aerial transportation, both applica
tions will be made.
"So mucu significance do I attaoh
so tbe success alre.dy obtained with
the free soaring kite that I named
it the 'Bonos,' as the ancient Greeks
styled the 'birds (f augur,' whose soar
ings their prophets watched from
towers of observation. Tbis free
moving kite balled against the wind
then circled around and a second
time rose against tbe current. Nj
we have not yet attempted to put a
man lo this machine, tut one of tbe
kites moored by a rope has lifted a
man weighing 165 pounds thirty feet
above the ground.
Mr. Bell has just returned from his
station in Nova Scotia, where the
experiments were conducted, and is
now preparing a report to present be
fore tne Geographical society, or be
fore the National Academy of Sien
ces, whlca will meet in Washington
in April. He was asked if further
experimentalework would be underta
ken during bis wl ter's stay in the
capital and be laughingly replied:
"Well, It Is haid for ma to keep my
hands off this work, but the trouble Is
that there are too many newspaper
men around Washington. It is not
wise to let the necessary preliminary
failure be known before the final re
sult la obtained. However, I have
ome places for experiment in the
neighborhood and I will, perhaps be
able to add something to wbat is al
ready available for publication before
the April meeting.
A carious incident In connection
with the experiments in Nova Scotia
was a move by some eagles to attack
one of the kites, which at a distance
vfiry much resemble a great bird.
Bat the eagles, when close enough to
note the size cf the new creation,
"thought better" of the attempt and
killed his SON in-law.
