Reference, Drexel state Bank. a PERFECT FLIERS. Eagles, Vultures and Similar Birds Are In This Class. It is a fact that those Ingenious and daring minds that devote themselves to the solution of the problem of avia tioii have 'given ho small part of'their preliminary study to considering the manner of flight of birds. A strange result of this investigation is the conclusion, now generally in dorsed, that, as a whole, the bird world is not to be regarded as perfect in its •ittainment of flight. For Instance, it fs contended by the best authorities that all birds obliged continually to flap their wings—and in this category may be mentioned sparrows, flnches, thrushes, crows, etc.—are still in ai imperfect stage of advancement. In the next class, as being a degree advanced, are put such birds as pi goons, swallows, etc., which are able to dart ahead for a space after they have gained a good start by the vigor ous flapping of their pinions. Iu the third class the birds that may be said.to be perfect fliers are the eagles, vultures, albatrosses and sim ilar big birds possessing the ability to rise nnd full and sway and soar In the ir indclinitely without a perceptible ovement of their wings. It is. of course, known to every person of an observant turn that these big fowl aro ble to soar into the air gradually un til at last they disappear from the eye of the watcher, it being almost impossible to detect any movement be yond a slight occasional motion of the tail.—New York Tribune. QUICK CHANGE. From the Desire For Comfort to tha Craze For Speed. Mr. Ncwcnr (about to start on his first trip in his recently purchased motor car, to his chauffeur)—Now, Wil Ham, I want it thoroughly understood I will not have fast driving. Alwsya keep well under the legal limit—not as close to It as you can. Ten miles an hour is fast enough for me. What I want is comfort, not excitement Do you understand? Three days later. "Er—er—William, I must be back to the house by 7 o'clock. This road seems very straight and wide. Don't you think you might go just a littio faster without dan ger Two days later. "William, this dust is very unpleasant. If you could puss that car ahead—It seems to be goiuj rather slov ly." Next day. 'Tut on a little more speed, "William. There's no use in be ing a crank. This road is too good to lose the chance." A week later. "Open her up, Wil liam! There are no police within live miles, I'll bet, and if there arc who cares? I'm out for fun! Let her zip! Let her zip! Thiols no steam roller! Let's have some speed!"—Life. WINCHESTER Smokeless Powder Shells "LEADER" and "REPEATER" The superiority of Winchester Smolcelesit Fowder Shells is undisputed,.
