PARIS, June 11.?The broad and stately Avenue de l'Alma Is rapidly being put in a state of siege. Both the roadway and pavement are blocked with enormous and unsightly heaps of sand and granite rubble and piles of tar bricks and cubes, the whole forming a rampart round an enormous machine whose cylinder grinds without ceasing from morning till night. The machine manufactures, it Is said, a composition of incredible hardness?one that is able to defy the flying wheels of any traffic for at least ten years, while always presenting the same uniformly smooth surface. The cylinder simply crushes up granite and any other sub stances with which it may be fed like walnuts. Finally it turns out a mixture that, combined with tar and cement, is to form the pavement of the future. The municipality is on the point of sign ing a first contract for $5/000 worth on trial. The question Is whether the new substance will not destroy tires in self defense, but its advocates claim that, on the contrary, it owes its durability in part to its smoothness and absence of friction. In this connection a word may be added in favor of some effective check upon the habitual "scorching" of the Paris chauf feurs. Only the other day three serious accidents occurred, the saddest of which took place at the "rand-polnt" of the Avenue des Champs Ely sees, always a most perilous crossing from the stream of taxlcabs that come bustling up and down like torpedoes. Two young girls were out for a holi day walk, and were Intending to cross the avenue, when they saw a motor car sweeping down. They appear to have hesitated a moment, but not so the chauf feur, for in a second he flew past, leaving two senseless bodies stretched behind him. One of the girls was killed outright and the other was carried to the hospital with a fractured skull. Paris drivers were always noted for reckless driving, but of late they appear to have lost all consideration for the lives and limbs of foot passengers. PLANNING AERIAL FLIGHT FROM LONDON TO INDIA Council Formed and Route to Be Followed by Aviators Is Mapped Out. Ftoreign Correspondence of The Star. LONDON, June 8, 1012. From London to India by air is the daring scheme which it is proposed to carry out this year. An advisory council has been formed in London for the pur pose of making the necessary preliminary arrangements, and Ernest Esdaile, a prominent Anglo-Indian, is acting as sec retary. 4 It is expected that at least three British aviators will participate in the attempt, which will be made about next Septem ber. "The feat," said Mr. Esdaile, "is not as impossible as it appears, and I say with confidence that the flight will be accomplished this year. "We already are negotiating with sev eral British aviators, and our plans are well advanced. The route is fairly clear as far as Vienna, and after that the aviators will follow the course of the Danube, as far as Nikopoli, and go over the Shipka pass to Adrlanople. Follow Persian Gulf Coast. ' "From Constantinople the Abatolia rail way will be followed to Bozanti, and the route afterward lies by way of Tarsus, Adana. Aleppo. Bagdad, the Euphrates and Tigris, to Bushire, along the coast of the Persian gulf of Bunda Abbas, and thence along the Arabian sea to Karachi, which is the first point that can be touch ed in India. "The distance, roughly speaking, is about"'4,500 miles, and some time before the flight takes place we shall establish ed posts and petrol stations. I am going over the route myself by motor car to make the necessary arrangements. "I have approached a number of British aviators on the subject, and I have got quite as many as I require at the mo ment. We want the whole thing to be all-British, the machines as well. "It is impossible to say how long the flight may take, but a start will not be made until after the monsoon season is ovpr at t?>e end of September. We mean to Ipav* MfMhicg whatever to chance." ' " * THE : ISLE OF STRIFE j \ GEORGE C SHEDD 181* * mml CHAPTEE XIV. A Struggle on the Sands. We had struck our bargain. Esper and I. A ray of hope flashed into my breast, but only a faint and struggling ray. How he should outwit these others?for it must be by wit if at all?I had not the faintest conception. Nor did he, I think, at the time have any plan; he would trust to the mind God had given him (so he would have said) and contrive an occasion out of opportunity. Could he do it? The whole matter rested in his grimy little hands. PUon departed to make ready the boat, and with him went Senor Del HervaJle. Desrarte drew out his pipe and smoked. Esper continued to engage himself with me in pleasant conversation. "How is It, monsieur, this thing of an ocean to sleep In?" he inquired. ?Til be better able to tell you tomor row." I answered. "Truly, yes. There will be big fish ana whales to disturb you, however, just as rats come and bite at Descarte when he is drunk." The man named turned a scowling coun tenance upon his frivolous companion. "Sacre, I will beat you for that." he growled. "Oh, mon comrade, no. It is only a little Joke, and the rats come only when you are very drunk. I myself have helped to drive them out of your bed. But what will you! One cannot enjoy drunkenness and not pay the penny." "That Is true," Descarte agreed. "So. therefore, the rats must run." "I am very dry now," Descarte said. Esper rose from the stool on which he sat, and, humming a chanson, strolled to the window, where he put his head through the broken pane for a while. When he rejoined us his cheeks were damp with the fine moisture of the fog. He resumed conversation. "What think you, Descarte. must I as valet follow my master into the sea?" Descarte showed his yellow teeth in a hideous grin. "I will help you there if you wish." "Salt would make me thirsty. There would be much water, but no wine. Water is for Imbeciles." "That is true," Descarte admitted, and looked around. "Has the dog of a Pilon left us nothing?" "Nothing." Again Esper went to the window and put his head forth. When he returned he shot a rapid glance at me. rolled him self a cigarette, which he lighted at a candle, then rubbed his nose specula tively. "How deep is the sea, monsieur?" "Some miles." "That is very far. a long jump up to come back for some of madame's brandy." "Perhaps you could find some down yonder in the bottom of the ocean. No doubt there are dozens of barrels rolling around that have spilled out of wrecked ships," I suggested. "Ah. barrels would be necessary, for I should be very dry. Indeed, with so much Bait about." "Damn Pilon. to leave us no brandy," "Pilon Is a cistern, he drinks it all. my good comrade. But, monsieur, I cannot follow you, I fear. The salt would spoil the barrels when they were opened. Par bleu, the thought of so much salt makes my throat stick together. I am very dry." "And I?I am dry," Descarte said. "We have nothing to drink." "Nom de nom, nothing." Esper stood with a forefinger to his nose, his smile coming and going. He looked at Descarte, Descarte scowled at the floor. "Tlens!" Esper suddenly exclaimed. Descarte looked up. "What?" "Brandy, a bottle." "Where 7" "I perceived Pilon to hide so much"? he Indicated a bottle half full?"in his long coat, the oilskin coat In the room under this. I will fetch It." Descarte sprang up, seized him by the shoulder and spun him aside. "Thief, would you drink It all! I, Des carte. will fetch It." And growling In his beard, he stamped out of the attic. For an instant Esper harked after him. The door remained open and he could hear the man's feet clumping down the flight of stairs to the next floor beneath. Breathlessly I waited. If Esper was wo do the business, this was his chosen time. He came quickly to me. "Listen, monsieur," he said. "I cut the rope, but you must remain without mov ing. Descarte will not observe. He will return without the brandy, for there Is none. Then I shall go down and look. When I, too, come back, I will cry, 'The prisoner! oh, thou traitor, Descarte! Pilon will wring thy neck for cutting that rope.' That will be the signal, master, for you to spring up. We will follow to catch you, but I will stumble in Descarte's way. Find then a place where your legs will carry you." With his knife he cut my bonds even as he spoke, leaving them to retain the ap pearance of being yet unsevered. The re lease of pressure upon my numbed and aching limbs sent the blood smarting through my arteries; pins and needles filled each finger and toe. But, oh, the joy of that pain! Working my muscles Into their normal condition, but gently so as not to disturb the segments of rope. I gradually restored circulation. Descarte was making a thorough search. "To resume our discussion, monsieur," Esper said, lighting a fresh cigarette and taking his seat, "all the salt in the sea, where does it come from?" At this instant I loved the rogue, loved his twisted nose and odd smile. For was I not released, was I jiot again a free man? Del Hervalle's plot had fallen apart with the rope. Notthlng in the world should stop me from going out of thi? stone house, where I had spent long, fear ful hours. Eagerness bade me leap up, fling myself out into the air and shout Del Hervalle's villainy to the world; pru dence whispered that I might meet Des carte on the stair?and he had on his per son a wicked knife. Moreover, obligation to the little fellow who had played his part so well held me yet bound by honor to give him the chance he demanded to reflect the guilt of my escape upon Des carte. I might have fled then and there. Esper was only a rascal?but had I not given my word? "Where does all the salt come from? Out of the earth," I answered. "Then there Is more to come?" "Yes." "It will fill up the ocean, mon Dleu, until there is no water, only salt?" "Possibly." He shook his head. "Master. I shall not follow you Into the sea, to be dried up hard in salt like a codfish In a barrel. No. monsieur, that would be to ask too much, even of a valet." On the stone steps Descarte's boots sounded clumping up to Join us. He wore a face of wrath when he entered. "Dog, son of a dog, thou drank it!" he snarled. Esper raised his eyebrows in astonish ment. . "I? No, no. my comrade. ' "There is no bottle there except an empty one." "Then Pilon has taken it. "Thou llest." "By the Little Mother, no. Stay you. I will look." Descarte scowled. "If you find It and bring It not here I shall. In truth, send you diving after this other dog." And he turned his scowl upon me. "Ha, Jest not," said Esper, "Jest not so serlouslv, Descarte." He disappeared in his turn, descending the stair on the mock search. The min ute of dellverence was near. Descarte scowled and listened and wrinkled his brow; far were his thoughts from me or my escape?all on a bottle. He was in na mood for Jests, yet the one Esper was about to play was an excellent one. I moved my feet a little until I had them placed so as to enable me to make a quick, forward spring. And then?and then, what was that I heard? Del Her valle's voice? They were ascending the stair together. Evidently the senor had not been satis fled to sit at madame's inn window, or perhaps the fog was too thick to permit him to look without. He stepped into the room, wiping moisture from his face with a linen handkerchief. Pilon waited STOVALL IS FOLLOWING PLAN OF RIVALS WfTH YOUNGSTERS * ? \ Nationals, Red Sox anc' White Sox Have Built Up Teams \Vith New Material ST. LOCIS, Mo.. June ".-In an nouncing that he is going: to reconstruct the Browns entirely with youngsters. Manager Stovall is following in the foot steps of every other American League leader. Not since Ban Johnson, Charles A. Comlskey and Charles Somers organized their circuit have so many minor leaguers become so prominent In the circuit as this year. The veterans, many of those stars who jumped the National League during the war days, and those secured to help fill out, have faded completely during the laat year or two. and their places have been occupied by a new base ball generation. Since the 1908 Browns cracked. Presi dent Hedges has tried to rebuild his ag gregation. but the material he and his scouts plucked has failed. For three suc cessive years?1900, 1910, 1911?the play ers parading In St. Louis have shown that they were not up to the standard of the seven rivals. Will Result in New Team. This spring Bob Wallace started out with a batch of unknown recruits along with the same set of spavs. The youths were many points shy the major league stuff?the same goes for many of the regulars?and after Wallace dropped all but a few newcomers he found himself with practically the same team as 1911. Then came tho switch that eventually Is Koing to result in an entirely new team at Sportsman's Park. All alotiK it has been claimed that the manager. Wal lace or Stovall. was not at fault for the Browns being eighth today. And Stovall is in the midst of a house-cleaning bee that by tlie spring of 1913 will see many new faces on the Browns. Stovall, whose best asset is nerve, told Col. Hedges the day he stepped Into of fice that he needed some major league ball players. But Wallace, of an entirely different disposition and nature, was lack ing in his demands, and wag willing to plod alone with the same gang. Not Stovall. though. Browns Have Five "Finds." Derrlll Pratt and Pitchers George Baumgardner, Elmer Brown and Charley Brown and Outfielder Pete Compton form the Browns' 1912 "finds." Several of them arrived late last fall, but they can be classed as the new "stars." And it is around them mostly that Stovall in Vorids to dt*?AJop his Cam into a w inner.

And the chances are each is irt fast company to stay. But the Nap have not neen as lucky this year as In 1811, and Davis is failing where Stovalt succeeded In Cleveland. Uarry Wolverton tried out a bunch of recruits in the spring, and his hesf winner is Outfielder Zinn, hero of Frl day's show at Sportsman's Park. It might be mentioned here that Zinn al most became a Brownie when Col. Hedges was in the east and met the I team in Philadelphia. AS TIS DONE IN GARY. By Lloyd Kenyon Jones. Gary. Ind., "the magic city," that sprung from sand dunes to 35,000 in six years, has its own way of pulling off events of the ring, and its heavy foreign population hasn't tended to make it the best flght town on earth. One fall, while Gary was still 1n Its flfth year, there was a match slated be tween Jack Ryan of Chicago and a Gary carpetbagger named Given. It was a hot, steamy September night, when the insects were all out in force, and when nobody cared about being In doors?but the scrap was billed, and Jack and his retlnuj showed up on schedule time, equipped with a brand-new suit case that contained the trunks, shoes and other habiliments of the ring. The hall was a Bohunk auditorium, with a bar in the front and dance hall signs in the rear. And the proprietor was a fat-faced, honest enough looking gink who might some day "be President. He was already alderman! Seeking safety for the suit case and Its contents, Jack placed the outfit in the keeping of the Immigrant in the white apron, and then settled down to watch "Special Delivery" Hlrsch and other Kids wallop the aspiring lining out of one an other. The time for the big mill came around and Jack went to get his togs?but the suit case was missing?and all the search on earth didn't disclose it. "Chimmlny!" the alderman gurgled, "for vy didn' youse put it in a safe place, eh?" "This ought to he safe!" Ryan shouted in disgust. "If a fellow's own bar isn't safe, then what is?" at the hoat, he was informing Esper, who listened with head on one side: what would the little fellow do? Would he give the signal? Well, none would be needed. The fingers of my right hand slipped down and closed around a stool leg. I straightened my body a trifle and several coils slipped away until the ends showed. But none of the three men for the mo ment perceived what had occurred, for Senor Del Hervalle still talked busily with the pair. He had now arrived in the center of the room, just behind Descarte. who continued smoking on his stool since his return: Esper, however, turned his head on one side so that he could hold me in range of vision. Up and down his glance flashed, noting the betraying frag ments of rope. "As valet to XL Charles, I cannot see that It is necessary to follow him Into the sea," he said, gayly. "Oh, mon bon enfant," smiled Del Her valle. Esper shot another glance at me, ran his tongue over his lips. The time for action had at last come. I gripped the chair leg tighter and leaned forward. "The service of a valet " he stated. then dramatically clutching the envoy's arm, exclaimed, "Look, senor, look! The prisoner! Thou dog, Descarte. to cut him loose?traitor, stinking pig " What more he cried I never heard. Up I sprang and swinging the stool In a great circle flung it at Descarte's head. Then I jumped for the door. The man at whom I had aimed the heavy missile ducked his head and body, falling over on one knee against the seat whereon stood the two candles, knocking them in a sputter upon the floor, while the stool passed on, striking Del Hervalle full In the breast and hurling him prostrate. That much I saw before the light sud denly diminished to the little halo of I radiance which lay round the flames burning on the boards. Out I went, fol lowed by a cry from Del Hervalle for the men to pursue me. I took the first stair by great leaps. A lighted lantern hung from a hook on the landing beneath, spreading from its dingy panes a few feeble rays. As I came under it I cast a swift glance up the steps behind me: Descarte was already out of the room, jumping downward like a mad bull and carrying a knife in his hand. Esper was close at his heels. Two steps and I was at the top of the lower stair, down which I plunged. In the room he low was darkness. My recollection of | the spot where opened the door and where hung its latch was vague: I had to halt and fumble for the latter. Almost Des carte reached me as I finally pulled it open and burst out of the dreadful house. The fog was not so thick but what the moon, now risen a little way above the %ood and cliff of rock, diffused the night with a pale and luminous glow. It was as if the street were filled with a mys terious golden haze- The walls of the opposite houses loomed dark; objects could be seen only as vague shapes, and into this strange vapor-filled canyon of the street, down which the moon shone, I and ray two pursuers fled. That there was fog I had forgotten; It enveloped me with a sudden surprise. Emotions, how ever, were out of place now. it was a time for lags. Behind me, not ten feet away. I heard the footfalls of Descarte and Esper. From Esper I had nothing to fear, but from the scoundrel who ran at bis aide X had everything to dread, for "Veil, anyhow," the proprietor assert- ? It, "It has vent?and vat has vent vunce in Gary is vent aJvays, ain't it?" Jack figured it was about so. and inas much as ministering hands sought to pro vide him with arena clothes, he was mol lified. This is what they gave Jack to fight in A pair of hard-soled shoes two size* too small. He was obliged to cut out the toes so that his own trilbies could pro trude. A pair of trunks three sizes too largo. Safety pins helped out there. A "mat" that was a piece of canvas stretched on the hard floor. They might have painted It on to make it permanent". Every time Jack would try to wailr?i? Given his feet would slip and he would go to the unsympathetic floor. Then Gary cheered. Whenever Given walloped Jack the lat ter would either slide back against th? wall or slip down again and skin his. shins. Gary would cheer again. It waB tough going all fhe way through but there was solace in the prospect of a purse. But after it was ail over, they cut down Jack's stipend t*? per cent, and their roared right. "Look here!" he shouted. "You pineh my grip and my clothes; you give met shoes nobody could fight In. You have no? regulation ring?it is twenty-two feet long and eleven feet wide. You have canvas on the hard boards. Now you cheat me out of more than half what's coming. Say, if I ship down a house and lot and a Jersey cow would you take it with the compliments?" "Veil," the proprietor admitted, "it, might help some. Mister Ryan. (iary. i you know, is a growing town Ve like to* annex all vat is?ain't it?" did he once get in reach of me lie would not hesitate to plunge his knife into my back. Down the empty, foggy street we. therefore, clattered, and out upon the sands. By the sound of their steps when our feet last echoed on the rock pave ment I knew I had gained ground on them. Without question I could outrun my pursuers if I had the endurance, but wearied by the hours in which I had been held captive, stiff from long remaining in a rigid position and weak from hunger, r knew that if I did not soon shake off that human wolf behind inc. Dear arte. It would come to a hand-to-hand struggle Then all at once I found myself stum bling among the Ashing boats, which had been drawn up that evening close to gether on the sand. Their blotted shai?e* lay like sleeping animals of the sea. one checked my way when I darted int.? a space between two others, and though there was a narrow space through which I might have crawled, it seemed to nn eyes in the yellow, obscuring haze an t in the haste of the moment, that I was walled in. caught In a cul-de-sac. Ther^ was no time to make an examination I whirled about and met Deacarte. rushing at me. (To be continued tomorrow > HUMAN NATURE. As Two of the Greatest Comedians i See It No comedians of the stage are better known throughout the land than Jn*> Weber and Lew Fields, so it will be like greeting old friends for readers of our next Sunday Magazine to see their "Ad ventures in Human Nature " They aim to tell all about the psychology of the:r stage humor?how they have analyzed it and put It Into practice. "In the first place," they write in ex plaining how they capitalize human na ture, "human nature is such that it will laugh loudest at the misery, pain and troubles of the other man. provided the latter are not of a too serious, too hurtful sort. This may sorm mean?anything you may care to call it?but it Is true. As one of the critics has aptly expressed It. 'This Is the greatest Joke the Creator saw fit t<> play 011 us, H,is chSflren. He fashioned our hearts so that they would weep at the beholding or hearing of suffering, and our minds plus our eryes plus our stom achs plus our ears?fnair to one?so that they would scream Iit fine glee at the very same thing.' Th*? one reservation here, so far as our si<bject, the theater audience, is concerned. Is that the au dience must know that the pain and suf fering are not deep " Here is their table of capitalisations of human nature: (1) Human nature loves best of all tn see two friends flght. (2) Human nature loves to see the un der dog in such an encounter or any other encounter get the worst of it. (3) Human nature loves to see a one sided flght. with the weaker man con sistently losing. These comedians'will shortly have an other story, dealing with "Further Ad ventures." It pays to read the want columns of The Star. Hundreds of sltuaXlona ar* filled tbroucto them.
