Bos ton-Washington Journey
Meets Hard Winds.
Atlantic City., X. J., July 5. A thrill
was given thousands of holiday vis
itors here yesterday afternoon when
Harry X. Atwood, the aviator,
after fighting heavy winds through
out his flight from Xew York, ter
minated the third leg of his proposed
journey from Boston to Washington
by landing in his biplane on the
beach front. During the flight At
wood made three landings for gaso
line, one near Asbury Park, the sec
ond at Tuckerton, X. J., and the
third at Venice Park, near this city.

amount of gasoline he had used he
muat have traveled at least 250

That Was Cast In Brealau.
The poor sinner's bell Is a bell In
the city of Breslau. In the province of
Silesia, Prussia, and bangs In the
tower of one of the city churches, it
was cast July 17. 1386, according to
historic records. It Is said that a
great bell founder of the place bad
undertaken to make the finest chnrch
bell be bad ever made.
When the metal was melted the
founder withdrew for a few moments,
leaving a boy to watch the furnace
and enjoining him not to meddle with
the catch that held the molten metal,
but the boy disobeyed the caution, and
when be saw the metal flowing into
the mold be called tbe founder.
The latter rushed in and. seeing, as
be thought, his work of weeks undone
and bis masterpiece ruined, struck the
boy a blow that caused bis immediate
death. When tbe metal cooled and
the mold was opened tbe bell was
found to be not only perfect, but of
marvelous sweetness of tone.
Tbe founder gave himself up to tbe
authorities, was tried and condemned
to death. On the day of bis execution
the bell was rung to call people to at
tend church and offer a prayer for tbe
unhappy man's soul, and from that It
obtained the name of "tbe poor sin
