', Peck May Go in Aeroplane to Harrisburg, Pa. EXPERIMENTS WITH MOTOR Exhibitions Will Be Given With the Rex Smith Machine at Penn sylvania Capital. It is possible that the new Rex Smith aeroplane, which is due to giv$ exhibi tions in Harrisburg, Pa., next week, may be flown from Washington to the Pennsyl vania capital under its own power. This may be made necessary by the failure of the railroad to furnish a car for the transportation of the aeroplane. The machine was given its initial flight at College Park yesterday afternoon and was found to be all right, barring a few minor adjustments. It had been intended to put a new Hall-Scott motor into the plane. This is one of the V-shaped, fight-cylinder motors. Instead of that. Emile Berliner, who is a member of the company, sent one or his new revolving cylinder motors to try out. This was installed with a Heath propeller and the machine given a flight , l>y Paul Peck, the young aviator who j had returned to Washington for the occasion. As the new motor is? a differ ent shape from the one that has been used, there was no telling where the \,f sr;,vit> would be when it was installed, and ..ftcr a flight or two the position of the motor was changed to improve the balance.

Boy Learns Real Relationship Only When Taken Into Court; When nine-year-old Frank Hggins dis covered in the Juvenile Court yesterday afternoon that Mrs. Benjamin F. Higgins. his foster mother, who died several months ago, was not his real mother, the little fellow dropped his head on the bench before Judge De Lacy and wept as if his heart would break. The realization that the dead Mrs. Higgins was not his own mother utterly prostrated the child. The boy was brought into court at the instance of his foster sistfr, Mrs. May ItiiKg of Tennessee avenue, for the purpose of having him committed to the board of children's guardians. "After my mother died Frank came to my home to live. I have three lfttle chil dren of my own?about all I can properly care for?and 1 feel that th's hoy should ' he raised by some charitable institution or the District." Mrs. Itugg told the court. She said her mother had taken the child to rear, when he was about nine days old. from a local infant asylum. What the name of the asylum was or who the boy's parents were. Mrs. Rugg was unable "to inform the court. "Mother treated the child like her own. He idolized her and thought, as you see now, that she was his real mother." said Mrs. Rugg. Judge De Lacy refused t ocomply with Mrs. Rugg's request until all means of finding out who Frank's parents were had failed. He continued the case until today. In order to summou the boy's foster father to court. It is believed he might throw some light on the child's parentage. The little fellow was comforted by Judgo De Lacy and court attendants. Mrs. Ruggs was instructed to care for him until the case was finally disposed uf. MUST SUPPORT HIS WIFE. Reginald Carlisle's Good Intentions Do Wot Pay Soard. Reginald Carlisle of 12-M Tlamline street. Brookland, D. C., pleaded for tlip dismissal of a non-support charge against him in the Juvenile Court yesterday lo calise. as he told Jufge De l^acey, he had recently become a religious man. pos sessed a fine, silvery tenor voice, just the thing for a church choir, and had ceased drinking some time ago. The charge was filed against Carlisle by his wife, Mrs. Viola Carlisle, who told the court that failing to support had become a habit with her husband in the past year. "I'm a different man now, your honor. I m a religious man?a genuinely good man," Carlisle told the court. "I've a splendid tenor voice," lie added, "one that would adorn any church choir. Give me a chance to use it in hymns of praise." Delighted to know of your good voice and the use you propose to put it' to," said Judge De Lacey. "But Is that goinc to support your wife?" he asked after a pause. Carlisle reflected for a moment for an answer, but made no reply. Pay her $11 a week and keep up the good intentions," suggested the court. He was released under a suspended workhouse sentence. MOTION IS DISSOLVED Court Decides Mrs. Marie L. B. Baldwin May Visit Home of Her Father. * ? Justice Gould has dissolved the injunc tion by wliich he recently restrained Mrs. Marie Jj. B. Baldwin from visiting the home of her father, John B. Bottineau, an Indian claims agent. The father noted an appeal to tiie Court of Appeals and gave a supersedeas bond of $300 to act as a stay of the court's order which allowed the daughter to return. Mr. Bottineau claimed he had pur chased premises '2Y1 A street northeast with money borrowed from his daughter on the agreement to reimburse her from the proceeds of certain claims then pend ing. He says the daughter advanced $1!.500 and he avers he repaid her $7,000, an excess of $4,300- Recently, he claimed, she took up her residence at his home and treated him so "unfilially" that she destroyed the peace and comfort of his home. Daughter's Answer. In her answer, filled by Attorneys Mad dox & Gatley and J. P. McMahon, the daughter says the property belongs to her and was purchased by her. She denies any agreement with her father, and de clared she bought the house because her father had lived there many years and was attached to it. Since the purchase, she avers, her father has lived in the house and paid no-rent. Mrs. Baldwin admits receivinvr from a claim of her father's, but says it paid under an assignment execu.ed by her father for a valuable considera tion. Other moneys received have been accounted for to Mr. Bottineau, the daughter states. Not only respect but affection for h<-r father has characterised tier conduct, Mrs. Baldwin declares. She says the trouble with her father benan when she had occasion to discharge a housekeeper "for good and sufficient reasons.'.* The defendant says she was glad to have .her father occupy the house as lon? as she owns it. provided he does not dis pute her ownership and rights in the premises. Attorney John RIdout represents Mr. Bottineau. 91.00 to Frederick, Antletam (Krrd.vn ville), Hagerstown and return, Sunday, September 17; Baltimore and Ohio.

Germany lias joined other foreign powers in making a study of the methods employed by the Department of Agricul ture in dealing with insect pests. Tl.a expense of the experiment Is being horr.a by Andrew Carnegie, who previously sent several graduate students from the Eng lish universities to take a course in prac tical entomology under the Department of Agriculture.

A Waiting Station Needed. To the Eilit?>r of The Star: ? While our beautiful Union station Is becoming darkened and discolored, await ing the improvement of the barren block* surrounding It, there is one improvement in its immediate vicinity that should re ceive prompt attention, viz a shelter for the hundreds of people that await ;i transfer at the junction at the corner of Massachusetts avenue and North Capitol street. Botli traction companies, repre senting live different lines, pass here, four transferring hundreds of passengers daily, who are compelled to stand unpro tected at this corner in all sorts of weather. There is an excellent opportu nity at this place for an ornamental an<l permanent waiting shed of iron or wood at a reasonably small expense. A vacant triangular piece of ground .the property of the city, converges at the point of Massachusetts avenue. F and North Capi tol streets, and it is at this point where our citizens and thousands of visitors to our city are compelled to stand at all seasons of the year in the open weather, inviting colds, pneumon'a, etc. I trust the importance of this matter will appeal to the proper parties, the railroad companies or the District authorities, and tins much needed improvement be made wl'liaut fur ther unnecessarv delav.
