The Fljlnr of War Kites rtlllzed m
Means of Advertlslnz.
One of the newest advertising
schemes in this city is the aerial ad
now being operated by JV. T. Emory
of Xew York, at Young & McCombs'
store. F.very man, woman and child
could lie seen standing mi the corner
of each block looking at a. string of
kites floating over the city 1,500 feet
in mid-air. The four kites are of dif
ferent colors and all attached to one
cord, and lieneath them, tied by a
cord, is a banner which reads, Em
ory's Great Mill Ilemnant Sale
Young & McCombs'. These kites are
the same ns those used by the United
States government in army signaling.
They have lieen used, too, in aerial
photography. A camera is attached
to the under side of the kite, a string
runs down to the operator on the
ground, and at the proper moment he
pulls it, thus making an exposure
and taking a picture of the earth be
neath. In this way in war time a
kite and camera may lie floated over
the enemy's camp and a photograph
taken of the interior of the fortif.ca
Mr. Emory will fly his string of war
kites from the store, roof each day
next week that the weather will er-
mit. It is a sight worth seeing, to
look up and yoli will see the great
string of kites.

HEARD IH A GRILL ROOM
Farewell Supper to a Girl by a Man-About
Detroit, Jan. 4. One of the rich
est and best known men In Detroit
sat at a table in the grill room of the
II-jtel Metropole with a woman who
was startlinsly beautiful and gowned
ike. a queen. It was a farewell sup
per he was giving lu-r, and she cried
ntermittingly between drinks of wine.
He had either tired of her or had made
a resolve to turn over a new leaf on
tlie Xew Year. The diamond he had
given her flashed from her ears, her
finger and her throat- Every time
(die moved they sparkled and her rich
silks rustled like leaves of corn.
It's got to le," he was he.-rd to
say to her. "I've used you rislit: you
are still young. 4eautiful and have far
more than when I met you. You know
hat I can never marry you, and what s
he use?" "You're going to marry
pome society girl. I presume .' she
said, as a hard glitter came into her
eyes; some fair creature with anjrel
eyes who would pull her skirts aside
if she sat near nie in the theatre, some
mother's darling who will kiss her
husband just as I have kissed him "
'Stop'." he said hoarsely: "enough
of tills!" His wine glass tipped over
and fell with a crash to the floor.
