"Why, do you know that at the irreat centennial exposition at Philadelphia, in 1MT0, thero were ten thousand differ ent kinds of birds, and, although they nere an accessiuie, none of our scien tific men studied their wings, and made notes or their methods. It is a fact that hero were gathered together for the study of man all sorts of Uod's flv Ing creatures; and I spent hours inves tigating the methods of their construc tion. Hut how do you suppose that I learned tho Bccrct of that great sailer, the eagle? I took a litt le food with me. anu, away up mtne clefts of the Blue Itidge mountains, I lay and watched them as they sailed along, apparently motionless, irom crag to crag. There l learned tho secret of the slight motloLS which kept them afloat. It is difficult for nearly all classes of birds to mount Into the air; but after tho great sailers have reached the upper stratjfthev find little difficulty in leping on upwards toward the bud. I have studied all of them, and have all of their seereta written down in books, as well as in my memory. If I should die, some one else m$ht go on with my work.

Over in Europe, ' he continued, Maxim lias a flying machine which ho atflrta with a railroad train. It is cost ly, and merely a sailer. His machine cannot mount without a railroad for an impetus. That is not flying: it is sail ing. That is tho work of the eagle, i after he has mounted. But a perfect flying machine must be able to lift its own weight, and mount; after accom plishing that, any good light machine I may fly. I will show you how to monct, of sight ao quick that you would wonder at their disappearance, and think it was some sort of mngic." ino expert scientists at the Smith sonian huvo no doubt that flying ma chines will be common public property before the close of the century. They any that the old Idea that a gas reservoir Is necessury to flying machines has long slnco been abandoned. Roger Bacon declared more than six hundred years ago that "a reservoir of thin metal, filled with cthereullzed air or llmild lire," was the prime essential to a flying Headline, anil that theory was accepted wiinoiu question until within the last hulf century; consequently .tho scien tific theories concerning the problem of aerial navigation have taken an entirely different direction during the Dast twenty years. Tho generally accepted theory of science now is that the devel opment of some aort of power which will produce sufficiently rapid revolu tions of screw iiropollcrB. will result In ulr ships which will mount and sail ns easily through the air as ships are pro- jjciicu inrouga me water by that means. But nearly all of them unite in rejecting the bird theorv as nn ex ploded vagary. Probably if they knew me secret wincn has been developed by the man in the mountains they might take another view of tho matter. The idea of carrying freight throusrh the air is not yet entertained, but tho ex pectation is almost universal that the time is rapidly approaching when oas- senger traffic will be managed entirely above the clouds, or through them. With this end in view, little life bnnfa oi aluminium have already been con structed, and parachutes have been de signed, by means of which passengers may alight at different points, without delaying the onward flight of air ships carrying through passengers. The lit tle life boat are to prevent drowning, in tho event of a collision or other aiv.1. dent in the air, when flying over rivers or lakes.

Bill Cook was tho Itinaldn Tti.mMlnl ofllnde aioele brigands. Many of his little acta remind one of the irracloua courtesy of the Itulian highwayman par excellence. But the most roman tic feature of his criminal career ni one that will appeal with great force to the sentimentally inclined ia its be ginning. If current reports can be be- ..v., wu uoiea train rouher waa, once upon a time, a really useful mem ber of society. His father waa a poor but honorable farmer. His mother, a half-breed Cherokee, his biographers describe as a good woman. Bill, one of three sons, grew up amid scenes calculated to dry up the milk of human kindness in anybody's veins. Nevertheless he behaved himself pretty fvell until a few years ego, when he Waa a cowboy in the Creek nation. H waa noted among his rough companions as a daring horseman, a "dead-ur ihot" and an all-around good fellow. )na day Bill and aome of his com pan ons visited tho town of Sanulna. On ho way back to their pasture ground he cowpunchors atopped at tho shack of a ranchman named Pittman. In an swer to their hallos a pretty, black-eyed damsel came to the door and bade them enter the honse. Bill was the only one to accept the invitation. Ho tried the patience of his companions bv tarrvino much longer than seemed necessary. ThcyhBd no idea that Cunld had flwwl one of his famous darts and had struck tho hearts of gallant Bill Cook and charming Martha Pittman. The happy pair made love in the eood old wav: W Bill, being a forehanded fellow, thought It would be wise to savo money for the building of a cozy nest, and In tM. good intention was encouraged by the Eirh Now cownunchinir. although a healthy, ia not a very lucrative occupa tion, and Cook became a Whlalrv tm,i rr. gler.

Bill Cook s word was as good as hia wni into the mountains and organized as tough a band of outlaw, as ever disgraced American civilization. He terrorized not onlv individuals but entire communities. In fact he became so famous that old Pittman became quite proud of him and consented totha marriage between his daughter and tlio robber chief. The old fellow went ao far as to secure a marriage license at Muskogee, and the eounla wm,i.i I,.,.. been made one in October had not a detachment of Indian polica been on the trail of the prospective groom at that particular time. When Cook made his debut as a first class desperado last June he was twenty-four years of age. At that time l C. Starr, treasurer of the Cherokee nation, waa at Tahlequah, engaged LVp?Mntdutyo'pBy,ns out ,- 000,000 of government money to tho men of his tribe. Bill Cook happened to read about this transaction in a St. Louis newspaper and, accompanied by his brother Jim, at once started for xaniequan. tin the way they picked np Cherokee Bill, a mixture of white negro and Indian, and unquestionably one of the worst villains that ever drew the breath of life. To him the Cooks unfolded their plan, which included tho murder of Starr and the stealing of tho money ln his charge. Cherokee Bill waa pleased with the prospect, and as once proceeded to enlist seven notorious cutthroats under the Cook banner. The band, thus reen forced boldly rode into i.uiunu ana made an attack on Starr's place. After fifteen minutes ol desperate fighting the ruffians were re pulsed by the treasurer's guards. The leader of the Indian officers, Sequoyah Houston, waa killed by the bandits, but Jim Cook, lieutenant of the robber band, was wouuded and captured. Subsequently Bill Cook reorganized and strengthened hia band. Ha made inenwee uui his lieutenant and en listed the most daring members of tho Dalton gang then in the throes of dis solution. After watching his men in "battle," he made promotions, selecting as his "personal staff" seventeen of the wickedest daredevils to bo found in the most lawless part of the United States. - Kvery member of this "staff was compelled to take a fearful oath, the penaltv of violation being sudden death. Bill's word was recognized as the only law, and disobedience to any command he might give meant a doso of lead. After the band had been thoroughly trained, Cook established a central ren dezvous in the vicinity of Muskogee and Fort Gibson. From this place he directed bis numerous raids.

To make a bad thing worse tho lovesick Bill was ordered from the house and told never to show his face again in tne vicinity of the Pittman habitation. Little Martha didn't liko the way in which her lover was being treated and declared boldly and em phatically that she would marry him skiudeatlnely, But to tlii proportion and trains held up. Travelers were compelled to give un their nosaeaalon. at the business end cf revolvers. A Claremore Cook and hia staff robbed the station agent; at Inola they robbed both the station and a train, getting away with everything from cash to canned fruits; the depot at Gibson station was plundered so often that the a?cnt asked to be relieved of his Job. Some time i July the gang captured the town of Red Fork, drove the inhabit ants into a vacant lot, surrounded them with guards and then proceeded to rob the depot, stores and a train which ar rived Just In time to lie of profit to them. A few daya later Bill and hia minions raided the bank at Chandler, Okla., during tho tmsiest hour of tho day. The raid ended in a fight during which several citizens and outlaws were killed. In October the bandits took the town of Watova bv storm and looted every store In the village. From there they rode to Talola, ten miles distant, ond repeated tho oprration. Two days later tho same gang took tho town of Cbrreta, partially wrecked a train, brutally assaulted a number of eitizens and committed every depreda tion oi wiucn mey could think. This last outrage aroused the anger of tho government officials in Okla homa and tho court authorities at Fort Smith. An army of Indian policemen was sent on the trail of the outlaws, which was kept red with the blood of murdered and maimed victims. A num ber of the desperadoes were captured, but Bill Cook escaped and was com paratively safe until Sheriff Perry mado up his mind to round him up, dead or I Unless justice miscarries, Bill Cook will stretch hemp before he is two months older, and no one will mourn his departure but Martha Pittman, who has remained faithful to him, and his sister LiUu. The latter, by tho way, although not a bandit, is one of the unique characters of the Indian country. She is said to be a daring horsewoman, and her favorite amuse ment is to rido into a frontier town, yelling at tho top of her voice and shooting right and left.
