HEAVENWARD IN AN AIRSHIP.
alph Johnstone Soars 9,714 Feet
Grahame-White Wins Race With
New York, Oct. 31.-A baby Wrigh
roadster, with Ralph Johnstone at th
wheel, glided gracefully to earth i
the twilight at the close of the inter
national aviation meet at Belmor
park this evening, with the barograp
registe'ring a new world's record fo
altitude. The little machine, of onl
35-horse power, had been up 9,71
feet, exceeding by 528 feet the heigh
attained in France in October 1 b
Henry Wynmalen, of Holland.
But Johnston's sky-climbing fea
was not the only notable incident c
the closing day of the meet. Claud
Grahame-White, the athletic Britist
er, who carries away the Gordon Ben
nett trophy, which takes the next in
ternational tournament to EIgland
sharpened the sporting appetite wit
a challenge to John B. Moisant, c
Chica-o. for another race from th
park around the Statue of Liberty, i
New York harbor, and return.
Moisant, who won $10,000 for hi
fast flight around the statue yesterda
refused to consider the challenge un
less White agreed to flying a 5(
horse power Bleriot, a machbine equa
in power to his own. Grahame-Whit<
who made the statue flight in a 10C
horse power Bleriot, declined to en
tertain this counter offer, so that th
chance for another thrilling fligh
over Brooklyn is off.
Then, Grahane-White, denied anoth
ehance for a visit to Miss Libert

a Grabfelder & Co Compromise Suit and
- Will Pay State Fifteen Thou
t sand Dollars.
r Columbia State, 2nd.
y Practically admitting that they had
4 overcharged the State to the extent
t of thousands of dollars, Grabfelder &
v Co., a liquor house of Louisville, has
abandoned its injunction proceedings
and will pay the sum of $15,000 to the
f dispensary commission. The company
was seeking to enjoin the commission
. from further holding up the sum of
- $18,000 due from the several county
- dispensaries to the liquor house.
, This case involved the constitution
ality of the act af 1910 which provid
If ed that funds, owing sundry liquor
e houses by county dispensaries should
2 be first applied to the payment of
claims in favor of the State found by
s the commission to be due. The aban
V donment of the litigation by Grabf.eld
- er & Co., and settlement in accord
- ance with the views of the commission
,I I would seem to indicate that the attor
neys for Grabfelder regard the act i
- as valid though this question is yet
- to be determined by the supreme court
e in another case. The conclusion of
t this case leaves little to be collected
under the provisions of the act of 19101

To the western mind there is noth
ing more curious in Chinese customs
than the persistency with which the
Celestials have clung throughout the
centuries to their system of medi
cine, an odd mixture, for the most
part, of superstition and hidebound
In the Chinese materia medica we
find almost every variety of vegetable,
animal and mineral substance, and
these reach about the number of one
thousand-a remedy, as some one has
put it, for each disease to which, from
the Chinese viewpoint, man is liable.
Roughly speaking, the Chinese medi-'
cines are derived about as follows:
From the -mitals and stones 138
kinds of physic are extracted; from
grasses and 'r egatables, such as roots,
stubs, leaves, flowers and seeds, 350
kinds; from tr'ees, 130 kinds are found
in the roots, bark, trunk, leaves, seeds,
fwre; from .the human body 27
kinds; from veget%b1rs, such as cab
'ae, turnins and birds, thirty-four
kinvis: from bugs, worms, shellfish,
snakes, turtles and flies, 100 kinds;
om fruits. forte kind; from vege
thTs. such nR enth'reg. turnins. me]
s etc., Stv-two kira. And to 91!
The Chinese materia medica is in
debted to the animal world to a con
siderable extent. Nostrums are made
from the teeth and horns of the "dia
gon," musk from the musk deer, and
the list also includes bear's gall, deer's
glue, sheep's milk, glue made from
a black mules' hide, rams horns,
mares milk, hoof of a white horse,
thigh of a bay horse, sheep's lungs,
horns, kidneys and gall; deer's horn
pulverized, and the bones, eyes and
claws of the tiger. The skull, heart,
brains, teeths and blood of the dog are
With respect to the practice of the
Chinese doctor it may be said that to
Occidental notions, the most curious
feature of it is that the physician is
employed by the year, and that his
salary stops when any of the family to
which he ministers becomes ill, in
other words, he is paid only for keep
ing them in good health.
Th'e Chinese doctor believes in giv
in, "like for like"-that is to say,
poison for poison-and so it follows
that he employs in his practice almost
mw-v element known to nature. His
medicne is no joke-it is pretty far
One odd thing about the Chinese
doctor's prescriptions is that different
medienes are ordered on different
days for the same ailment, a feature
of treatment that has its origin in the
Chinese belief that the human system
is not the same at all times. For in
stance, the Celestials will tell you that
there are some 50 to 60 kinds of heart!
disease, 20 or 30 forms of consump
tion and perhaps 100 varieties of dys
nensia. Your true Chinese physician
will claim that be can with correct
ness successfully diagnose without
asking his patient a-question. Opium
and ginseng form no unimportant part
of the Chinese materi-a medica, and
when the doctor in the Flowery King
dom has exhausted every other reme
dy he turns to the above mentioned
In addition to his medical knowledge
the Chinese doctor also claims the
power to exeycise thie jevil spi'rits
through whose agency we humans are
supposed to be afflicted.
When a Chinese doctor administers
a dose to his unfortunate patient he
permits himself no halfway measures.
Indeed, he gives the patient as large
a dose as he thinks he can stand. For
example, In one Chinese remedy for a
cold there are some nine ingredients,
and the pill wherein they are con
tained is something larger than a boy's
marble. Besides the medicine for the
cold there may be included others by
other complaints of which the physi
can may susnect the natient to be af
flicted. the theory in this instance be
i~g that hy administering several kin']
of meiine at once the "channels" of!
tlM' svstemn will conduct these reme
dies to the different portions of the
hndv and thns hit the right -spot.
