WRIGHT SPEEDS IN AIR.
Flies Forty Miles an Hour at Fort
Washington. July 12.-Orville
Wright this -evening made a very suc
cessful flight in the Wright aeroplane
at Fort Meyer, Va., remaining in the
air five minutes and 30 seconds, dur
ing which time the machine attained
the exceptional speed of 40 miles an
dour and circled the parade grounds
half a dozen times, a total distance
of about three and a half miles.
A strong breeze prevented the
Wright brothers from starting the
aeroplane after it was brought from
the shed. While waiting for favorable
conditions, they examined the ma
chine carefully and chatted with
prominent persons who had gone ov
er from Washington to witness the
With Count von Bernstroff, German
ambassador, the Wrights talked at
length, explaining the workings of the
machine. Mrs. Nicholas Longworth,
daughter of ex-President Roosevelt,
enthusiastically examined the aero
plane, as did Secretary of the Navy
When the signal finally was given
to start, the machine shot forward
and mounted gracefully into the light
breeze. Orville Wright guided the
1yer to the lower end of the large
parade ground and circled around to
ward the starting pont, gradually ri-.
ing higher from the ground.
Six Times Around.
Six times he rounded the course,
the machire attaining an average
speed of about 40 miles an hour, ac
cording to Mr. Wright.
After passing the crowd the sixth
time, the aviator decided to make a
landing because the motor occasional
lv was missing a spark. He descend
ed easily, and lighted with no appar
ent jar, the machine sliding smoothly
over the ground until it came to a
stop at a point near the shed.
Both of the Wrights expressed
themselves as pleased with the per
f6rmanee. They intend to make only
short flights until the new bearings
ihave become worn down and the
propelling motor is working perfectly.
When these things have adjusted
themselves to the satisfaction of the
aviators they intend to attack their
main task, to which these minor,
flights are preliminary-that of sat
isfying the conditions prescribed by
the government for the official test.

An enormous quantity~ of gas had

coal in the hold and naval officers are
at a loss to know 'why Aiken permit

the bow of the Scott penetrated the
side of the Cowle. In three minutes
the Cowle had settled to the bottom

A line was thrown from the deck of

escaped by this means.
The rest of the crew who were sav

Until Capt. Rogers returns here it
is impossible to secure the names of

she had been loaded.

PEOPLE WILL VOTE
AS TO INCOME TAX
House Passes the Senate Joint Reso
lution.-The Vote Almost Unan
Washin~gton, July 12.--It is now up
to the legislatures of the several
States to say whether there shall be
an incomne tax amendment to the con
stitution. By the decisive vote of 317
to 14, more than the n?eeessary two
thirds, the house today passed the
senate joint ,resolution providing for
the submission of the question to the
States. The negative votes were all
ast by republicans. No amendment
having been made to the resolution,
it now goes to the president for his
Practically four hours were con
sumed in debating the proposition and
this afforded many members, mostly
on the democratic si'de, an opportun
ity to air their views. Chairman
Payne of the committee on ways and
means voiced the sentiment that such
a tax would make "a nation of liars''
although he said it was well that such
power should be given congress, es
pecially in times of war.
The burden of the democratic
speeches was that it was simply a
case of stealing democratic thunder,
although some of the remarks on that
side incidentally touched upon the
tariff and the corporation tax, with
no little amount of castigation of the
republicans for failing, as was alleg
ed, to keep party pledges.

GERMS IN HER SYSTEM.
Every Woman Should Read This.
The number of diseases peculiar to
woman is such that we believe this
space would hardly contain a mere
mention of their names, and it is a
fact that most of these diseases are
of a catarrhal nature. A woman can
-not be well if there is a trace of the
catarrhal germs in her system.
Some women think there is no help
for them. We positively declare this
to be a mistaken idea. We are so sure
of this that we offer to supply medi
cine absolutely free of all cost in
every inst-ance where it fails to give
entire satisfaction or does not sub
stantiate our claims. With zhis un
derstanding, no woman should hesi

or hesitate to put our ejainis to a
There is only one way to .nre Ca
tarrh. That way is through the
blood. You may use all the snuffs,
douches or like remedies f.- years
without getting more than temporary
relief at best. Catarrh is caused by
a germ. That germ is ca.rried by the
blood to the innermost part of the
system until the mucous membrane
is broken, irritation and inflammationi
produced, .and a flow of mucous re
sults, and you can probably realize
how silly it is to attempt to cure such
an ailment unless you take a medicine
that follows the same course as the
germ or parasite.
Rexall Mucu-Tone is scientifically
prepared from the prescription of an
eminent physician who for tirty
years made his specialty Catarrh, and
with this medicine he averaged 98 per
cent. of cures where it was employed.
No other remedy is so properly de
signed for the ailments of woman. It
will purify an'd enrich the blood, stop
mucous discharge, destrey 'ill germ
matter. remove all impnrities from'
the system, soothe, hea] and strength
en the mucous tissue.s, and bring about
a good feeling of health anid strength.
