that for the last two months has attend

were rigged, the turntable swung around
to point down stream, and in a short time
the aerodrome was hosted to the top of
the superstructure in sections and placed
in the launching car, the silken wings at
tached to the steel body, the rudder ad
justed and the motors given a preliminary
warming up spin.
When everything was in readiness Pro
fessor Langley called an assistant to his
side and spoke to him briefly. The
scientist entered the houseboat, and a
moment later Professor Manley appeared.
He was pale, but calm, and wore no
shoes He said a word of farewell to
"his brothers, shook hands with his fellow
scientists, received an encouraging slap
on the back from Professor Langley, and,
still pale, but not so calm, stepped into
his cramped quarters Just In front of the
frequently tested aluminum motor.

What They Say About Ou r Suits.
When ladies of long experience in shopping report that they cannot find in the city a better
line of suits than ours, and that hardly one even approaches it, we feel that we're on the right
track. Such reports are becoming a familiar story and still we are not satisfied. We have just
added a hundred new suits te the stock that called forth these reports. You can guess what our
position must be now. So you see we're not afraid that our talk will be considered extravagant.
We'll describe two favorite numbers.
One is a long, mannish Coat Suit, made of
regular men's mixtures jacket lined throughout
with taffeta and made by the best man tailors,
skirts made in the new flare, with man-tailored
seams. This suit cannot be 9 7 R A

ROW AMONG UNIONS
Many of Them Object to Prominence
of Sam Parks.
New York Sun Special Service.
New Yort-, Sept 4 Since plans for the
Labor day paiade here have tended more
and more to make the demonstration a
"vindication" of Sam Parks by the old
board of building trades, some of the im
portant unions ha,ye backed out They do
not like the effort to bring Parks Into
prominence again by making him grand
marshal
While the housesmlths' and bridge
men's union seem still to stand by him,
the members of the other unions who are
sick of the strikes and shutdowns are
bitter toward him.
The following unions in the old board
have decided not to take part in the
parade Granite Cutters, Journeymen
Stonecutters, Steam and Hot Water Fit
ters and Helpers, the Brotherhood of Boil
ermakers and the Iron Shipbuilders.
None of the unions of the board of rep
resentatives, all of which have signed the
arbitration agreement of the Employers'
association, will join in the parade These
unions have an aggregate membership of
30,000
Signal Is Given.
"Signal," said Professor Langley.
A rocket shot up high In the air and ex
ploded with a loud report A government
tug a mile away answered with two long
blasts on her siren. The drawn faces of
the scientists showed the strain they
labored under.
"Go," said Professor Langley The man
at the release lever tightened his grasp,
the scientists fell back against the house
boat rail, and Professor Manley, after a
last glance around, set his teeth and threw
back the lever, which started the fre
quently tester high power gasolene motor.
But the motor did not start, and the pro
pellers did not revolve. The strain re
laxed a trifle. Professor Manley worked
the lever back and forth, first slowly, then
with emphasis, but the propellers re
mained stationary.
Professor Manley climbed out of his
cage to see what had happened. A brief
investigation showed that the sparking coil
of the much-tested high power motor was

BAILEY'S UNIQUE SALE
Accounts of Delinquent Subscribers
of the Britt Tribune Are
Auctioned Off.
Special to The Journal.
Iowa Palls, Iowa, Sept. 4.The first
auction sale in Iowa of the accounts of
delinquent newspaper subscribers has
been conducted by Editor E. N. Bailey of
the Britt Tribune, and was a success
Mr. Bailey is one of the best known
editors in northern Iowa, and his humor
ous writings have been widely copied. He
recently hit on the novel idea of auction
ing off the accounts of subscribers in ar
rears.* Accordingly a notice was published
In his paper giving the names and
amounts of the accounts to be loffered for
sale to the highest bidder Sept. 1.
The claims varied in amounts from $3
to $2.50, and the subscribers were resi
dents of Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Minne
sota, Texas and Oklahoma.
The bidding on the accounts was brisk
and the sate attracted many bargain
seekers. The lowest 'bid that captured
any of the accounts was two matches,
while some of the claims were bid in at
their face value.
People Expeet the Best

comfort when they travel via the North

pointed, no matter how exacting they may

trade could possibly call for, but along came a sample line of
new Sweaters and we couldn't say no to it. We'll not stop for
descriptions. Sweaters now range from $1.89 to $6

of everything you can want.
Still More Silk Underskirts
We weren't exactly getting low on Silk Petticoats, and still
we were very glad to receive a shipment that has just reached
us. We ordered it in time for the whole of Fair Week, and it
would have been a great feature of the sale. The skirts will
be on sale Saturday. Can we do six days' business in one day?
Maybe not, but much will depend on how fully you appreciate
the nature of the offering. There are skirts at $ 5 that aston-
ish every judge of values. From that point the prices climb
by easy steps up to $35. Ah, but those are elegant skirts.
But come and see them. We want your judgment on them.
