WARD CIRCLES FORTS.
Baring Airman Flies From Aerodrome
to SullIvan's Island-Wins $5,
0harleston News and Courier, 7th.
Flying with an engine which had
failed to work the previous day, James
J. Ward, the 18-year-old aviator of the
furtiss team, yesterday broke a
world's record for low-pbwered aero
planes and sustained his reputation
for daring by flying from the Charles
ton Aviation field to the navy yard,
from there over the city, across the
Gooper and Wando rivers to the op
posite side, over Mount Pleasant, then,
describing an aerial circle, passing
nearly over Castle Pinckney and Fort
Sumter, winging in a great sweep over
ih'e Atlantic ocean to the Isle of
Palms, and from there down the beach,
effecting -a perfect landing directly in
front of Fort Moultrie. After a wait
of six minutes on the island.' he re
turned in a direct line to the afiation

Sottile, the promoter of the meet, that
with the consent of Mr. 0. G. W. Mar

had been given to Ward in recognition
Of the splendid fight that he had made

WARD'S FEAT IN AIM.
light Over Carolina Forts Ex6ites
Interest.-War Department Offi
.WasbingtDn, Jan. 7.-The daring
fight of Aviator James J. Ward, cir
cling the powerful fortifications' of
Charleston harbor and lan'ding in the
very front of historic Fort Moultrie,
h as created widespread interest in 'war
department circles here, especially
among the aeroplane and airship ex
perts of the signal service corps, who
-look after that branch of the service
and are eagerly interested in every
thing aviatory, especially the flying of
these new machine birds over fortress
es considered hitherto impregnable.
*These experts look upon Ward's feat
as conclusively proving the efficiency
of the aeroplane, not only to act as a
scout in spying out the inner condiition
and movements of an enemy, but as
also conclusive evidenece that these
"-new aerial war machines can be used
for the destruction of the most power
ful rortified positions.
Marks an Epoch.
"This flight of Wai-d's around two of
the best constructed forts on our
coast," said a signal service official,
who has devoted his attention to aero
~planes, to the Washi.ngton correspond
ent of the News and Courier, "marks
an era in the development of future
military operations. It adds a proof
conclusiv*ly, in my judgment, that this1
new engine of .warfare will totally
revolutionize all future tactics and
' strategy as effectually as the introduc
tion' of firearms -revolutionized the
-tactics and methods of warfare in the
old days of sword and spear. What
can a host of armed men do against
a man like Ward, 500 feet in the air
above them, loaded with a score of
explosiv'e bombs, ready to drop4in their
midst? Brav'ery can not avail when
there is nothing to be brave against.
.- ew War Factor.
"It looks like the 'boasted secret for
*tifications and disappearing guns of
the coast defences of the United
States, as well as those of the sea
coast nations of Europe, will have to
reckon very heavily with this new fac
tor in time of war. Even such power
ful fortresses as Moultrie and Sumter
'would be like clay in the hands of the1
potter when assailed from abov@ by
half a dozen aeroplanes, bearing st,ruc
ture-wr.ecking bombs to be dropped at
the leisurely will of the aviators."
"Ward's feat at Charleston and the
forts in the vicinity, powerful as they
are, demonstrates conclusively that
the aeroplane .will 'be a powerful fac
-Aor in all future wars not only in the
- scouting service, but as an energetic
and effective destructive agent," said
Major George 0. Squier, of the signal
service, who is regarded as the most
'up-to-date expert of the war depart
ment on matters of aerial warfare.
"Heretofore war has been conducted'
only in two dimensions. Fighting
forces could move only along the sur
face of the earth, able neither to oper-;
ate to any effectual extent below or
above it, but Ward's feat conclusive-ly
~proves that 'the third dimension, the!
air, with its all destxtying airships
and aerr"-" -. ' he reckonM
"What would Forts Sumter and
Noultrie have been worth had Ward
carried with him a few hundred
pounds of high explosives and from a
height of a few hundred feet dropped
them in the beart of the fortifications?
The very magazines, filled with am
munition, would become a part of the
lestroying force under the impact of
in explosive dropped from an'~ aero
plane and add to the general destruc
"The very essence of strategy is sur
prise," continued Major Squier, "a&,
there ne-.,er were such opportunities
)ffered to a constructive general to
wchieve great and complete victories
than those offered by such feats as
Ward's. An army can not move over
,W'11le milps a day. An aviator like
Ward, In his swift aeroplane, loaded
ith destruction, can move that far in
ess than twice thlat many minutes.
In the Future?
"Conceive the utter surprise of an
memy who looks up and sees half a
lozen Wards hovering over them with
m2ough higk explosives' on board to
low them into perdition. Yet it is
uch feats as Ward's, demonstrating
he utter powerlessness oz the two
limensioned force against this third
terial dimension-that will make for
yeace and tend to produce results with
he minimum loss. The consumma
ion of military art consists in man

"The new war craft will redound to
.he benefit of our nation, because
here is small probability of our mak
ng war upon any other country. If
,e are attacked the areoplane will, I
eel assured, render a powerful de
.ence against all invaders."

who are killed or injure'd in the dis

ALBERT NANCE, DEMIOCEAT.
Governor Ansel's Colored MUessenger
Replica in Bronze~ of Sculptor
One of the executive office family
who will pass out with Governor An
sel is Albert Nance, the colored mes
senger to the governor. Nargce is a
Newberry county Democrat, of many
years' membership in the psrty. He
is a familiar figure around the State
house, having served a number of ses
sions as porter to the senate and as
porter to the judiciary committee of
the house of representatix es. An
other well known colored Democrat
who comes 'to Columbia each year up
on the convening of the general as
sembly is Wes Oliphant, for about 16
years porter to the judiciary commit
tee. Last year the committee gave
him a handsome suit of clothes as a
reward for faithful service.
Nance will likely be a senate at
tacbe again this year. His resem
--.-"..'r-," Mr. F. W.
Ruchstuhl, is remarkable. He might
be described as the sculptor's replica
Master Harold as "Buster."
Again we are to have "Buster
Brown," as the management of the
opera house announces the little fun
maker and his bevy of attendant girls
for January 31. This year Master
Harold, who plays "Buster," has fully
dem-nnstratod that he is the right little
comitiue in the exact spot, for he is so
immersed in and imbued with the spirit
,of Mr. Outcault's character that those
who have seen him declare that he is
not playing a part, that he is the typi
cal "Buster" himself. New and ela
borate scenery and costumes together
with all new music grace the produc

GERMS IN HER SYSTEM.
Every Woman Should Read this Ad.
Tice and the Generous Offer
That Goes With It.
The number 6f diseases peculiar to!;
women is such that we believe this!
pace would hardly contain a mere
mention of their nmes, and it is a
fact that most of these diseases are of
a catarrhai nature. A woman can
not be well if there is a trace of cat
arrh in her system.
Some women think there is no help
for them. We positively declare this
to be a 'nistaken idea. Ve are so
sure 'of that 'that we offer to supply
medicine absolutely free of all cost
in every instance where it fais to give
satisfaction, or does not substantiate
our claims. With this understanding,
no woman should hesitate to believe
our honesty of purpose, or hesitate to
put*our claims to a test.
There is only one way to overcome
catarrh. That way Is through the
blood. You may use all the snuffs,
douches or like remedies for years
without getting more than- temporary
relief at best. Catarrh in general is a
diseased condition of the system that
shows locally most frequently in dis
charges from mucous membranes. Lo
cal treatment should be assisted by
internal treatment fior the general dis
eased corndition if a complete cure is
to be reached. That internal -treat
ment should be scientifically devised
and faithfully administered.
Rexall Mucu-Tone is scientifically
prepared from the prescription of Nan
eminent physician who for thirty years
made catarrI his specialty. This rem
edy is admirably adapted to the treat
ment of the catarrhal ailments of wo
men. It purifies and enriches the
blood, tends to stop mucous discharges,
aids in removing impurities from the
system, soothes, heals and strength
ens the mucous tissues, and brings
about a feeling of health and strength.
We want you to try Rexall Mucu
Tone on 'our guarantee.' If you are not
benefited, or for any reason not satis
fed, simply tell us and we will band
back your money. Rexall Mucu-Tone
comes in two sizes, 50 cents and $1.00.
