THE ARIZONA REPUBLICANS SUNDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 18, 1894.
i KITE MINUS A TAIL. Another Juvenile Tradition Is Laid on the Shelf. One of the first things learned by every boy is that a kite cannot, will not fly without a tail. Like most time honored traditions, this kite notion held till some one looked into it with a scientific eye. Then the whole story had to be remodeled. The some one in this kite business "was William A. Eddy, of Bayonne, N. J. He flew no end of kites from the top of Blue hill, in the suburbs of Bos ton, the other day with nary a tail on any of them. He could have flown a hundred, all on one string, had there been men enough to hold them down. Mr. Eddy sent up a line of kites, and reached a height of about three hun dred and sixty feet. This was alto gether disappointing, and a little in vestigation pointed out the trouble. His kites were made for Bayonne winds, where twelve miles an hour is fast, and the proportions were adapted solely'to that pressure. On Blue hill the velocity ran during the morning from twelve to twenty-five miles, and this unlooked-for pressure drove down the kites instead of elevating- them. Late in the afternoon the wind died down and another flight of four kites tandem was completely successful. A height of 550 feet was attained easily, and only a lack of the kites destroyed in the morning's experiment prevented a higher flight. The top kite main tained its position fixed far away in the heavens as if bound by stays. - The beauty and value of the idea as a method of investigation in weather science was apparent at once. Instru ments could be attached to that top most kite, or on all the kites in the string, and simultaneous readings, self registered, could be obtained. It was only a question of durability of ma terial to send up a line of kites and leave them there all the time, record ing with patient inerrancy the truths of the atmosphere at a height where much is sought and but little is found. The kite is a simple affair, the con struction of which is easily within the MALAY OB ZDDY KITE. reach of a clever boy, by following the accompanying diagram and directions. A great deal of stress is laid by Mr. Eddy on the dimensional proportions of the kite. The sticks for any kite of about a yard square are of spruce or ash and a quarter of an inch square, but this extremely slight stick may be strengthened by a brace. The sticks a b and c d should be equal in length jf. for flights in strong winds, but if in light winds, c d should be the longer. Mr. Eddy has found that an addition of 14 per cent, of a b's length to a b is about right for c d. Then c d is tied crosslike on a b at a point from the end, which is 18 per cent, of the total (a b) length. The ends of c d are then joined by a string, which is pulled taut, drawing c d into the form of a bow. How taut the string should be is learned by experience, but in a stick twenty inches long the string will be about three inches from the stick in the middle. The strain comes at the point e, and a strengthening stick may be tied along the middle, with strings at the end of the brace only, so as to allow of bending. The frame is then ready for the paper, which should be common but strong American tissue. The paper is glued firmly, with perhaps a wrap of twine also, on the four ends of the sticks. A wide margin of paper should be left in the cutting, and this margin then doubled over and glued down all around the edge, as a strengthening device. A piece of twine should be loosely tied around a b, between e and f, so that it can be shifted up and down. It is a bob weight, small as it is, which will be needed in the final adjustment. The cut shows the "wrong" or up per side of the kite. The kite string is attached at the point e, but a second string from the point b joins it at a point which is found as follows: Draw the kite string parallel to' e d; find a point outside of d, ten per cent, of e d, farther out, which in the cut is denoted by h; join b h, and the kite is .ready. Get embroidery silk the only item costing money so far as much as you can afford, and then you have your kite. The kite string must, of course, be run through the paper at e. The kite may not work steadily at first, but if the directions have been followed a trifling shoving up or down of the loose piece of twine between e and f will so adjust the center of grav ity that the kite will soar presently like a bird. The wind strikes the pa per altogether, which bags on each side of a b. The whole thing has a striking look of a soaring bird when up in the air. BESTAUBAIfT. Delmonico Dining Hail.

With all na tions and in all ages a moderate quantity of good wine has been deemed healthful and proper. drink: at least strong drink when used intemperately is a curse, but the sweet and the dry wines of which we have just received a carload are in tended for home and table use by intelligent human beings, not beasts.
