More than eighty orders for airships
to be used in the' United Statesman
now In the hands of the Wright broth
ers, Orville and Wilbur. Since their
demonstration of their ability to han
dle their aeroplanes with safety and
to teachr others how to do so they have
been flooded with letters asking for
terms for the building of the machines
and Instruction in flying. ."The branch
of the International Aero cluj- which
was organized. nt Dayton, .( recently
for the purpose of exercising some
supervision oyer prospective users of
heavier than air devices has received
many applications for membership,
some of which have come from well
known men of wealth throughout the
United Slates. For the present thoir
names are kept secret by the Wrights.
The American orders, however, arc
only a part of those that are comiug
Jn the beavy mall of the inventors.
News of1 their achievements has pene
trated to far parts of the world. From
Iceland 4u the last few days has come
an inquiry as to the cost of delivering
an aeroplane and sending an Instructor
to that far northern Inland. The shah
of Persja. perhaps remembering- one
occasion when he- had to escape from
his palace by stealth and desiring to
bnve a new device to defeat the revo
lutionaries, has asked that a machine
be constructed for him as soon as pos
sible. A Chinese mandarin who Is
one of the leaders In the awakening of
that empire to western civilization
has also snt an prxier.
Factory In Too Small.
The Wrights will be "unable to fill all
their orders because their factory is!
too small for the work. They will en
large its capacity greatly this summer
and hope to be able to meet all de
mands, made upon them." Another
trouble they ore having Is In obtain
ing a sufficient quantity of steel of the
exact grade to keep the present fac
tory f orking up to capacity. They are
endeavoring' to make arrangements
with steel mills to make them a sup
ply in future, but are having some dif
ficulty in doing so."
That the operations of the Wrights
necd not r.be" restricted for want of
capital Is shown by the fact that they
have refused an offer since their re
turn lor tue investment or a large
eum in their enterprise. This offer
came from well -known . New York
capitalists, who believed that the oper
ations of the Wrights should be great
ly enlarged. They -"declared," however.
that -They had suflicient money of their
own to carry on their work. x
FASHION VERSUS BEAUTY.
NOW IN FULL BLAST
Boston Sculptor TelU How Female
Form Is Being Ruined.
That woman's figure has been mined
by Blavery to fashion Is the declaration
of Uugh't'alns, the Boston sculptor.
"Woman's figure Is getting poorer
and ioorer every year. The women of
today are getting farther and farther
away from the Greek figure of 2,000
"As one Instance of this, those who
determine what is fashionable are try
ing to bring the waist line farther
down all tho time. - At present an ef
fort Is being made to get It down as
low as the hips. This is all wrong, of
course, for nature long ago determined
that it should be Just below the breast.
allowing a soft, graceful line from hip
to armpit. So long as fashion dictates
that the waist shall be close to the
hips, so long will we have women with
bulging, lumpy hips and other deform
."If women would have just such a
waist as they eeek the beautiful that
we see in classic paintings and sculp
ture, the waist that characterized the
ancient Greek woman let them avoid

KENTUCKY MAKING PROGRESS IN
.. THE PROTECTION OF ITS FORESTS
Kentucky, which is one of - the
chief hardwood producing states n.,
the union, and the first, state in the
production of yellow poplar, is mak-.
Ins good progress, sn the movement
for the preservation of jts forests.
In 1!0G the legislature enacted the
law providing for the state board of
agriculture, , forestry and immigra
tion. During . the following winter
the board asked and received the co
operation cf the United States forest
service in a study of the forest con
ditions of the state. This-work was
begun two years ago andean exam
ination of half the area of forest
land in the state has been complet
ed. , The result of the first year's
work, covering the 11 most eastern
counties of tjie stte is . published
in the Kentucy , Handbook, 1906
1907. The second report, now in the
hands of the state board of agricul
ture, covers 48 counties, largely in
the coal mining regions of the state.
When this investigation is completed
Kentucky will have an excellent in
ventory of its lumber resources.
The manner in which fhe forestry
problem .has been approached indi
cates that the people of the state
renlize that the ultimate solution of
tha impending timber scarcity must,
for the farmer, depend larely on how
he handles: his individual timber re
sources, and, that there is.no better
way , than for him to consider ' the
woodlot as a bank account, using 'the
interest which is constantly accru
ing, but' leaving the capital undimin
ished.. Much educational work, how
ever, will , be t needed to secure this
The second report of thej forest
service suggests a iorest law. Among
its most important, features is a pro
vision for the appointment of a stat:
forester, . The wisdom of this is evi
dent since only by the appointment
cf 'a state forester can the work in
cooperation with the forest service
be maintained and carried to a suc
cessful conclusion.' Until such a time
however, as the state of Kentucky
Is ready to assume the management
of its own forest problems, the na
tional service Is willing and anxious
to cooperate in every way possible
for the furtherance of forestry
among private owners, in Kentucky.
In the cooperation investigations of
forest resources now in progress, the
government-spent over 4.000 to
duplicate 4 similar amount appro
priated .byr the sta,te. c ..... . . .
Kentucky has always ecu-rich in
forest resources, but like many other
states has reached the point .where
the timber will hereafter be produc
ed on a continually decreasing sca'e.
and it is necessary to protect and
use carefully the forests which re
