Hotel Concord BiSMMTCk SAILINGTH E AIR How It Feels to Soar Aloft In a Balloon or Aeroplane. ALL SENSE OFHEIGHT LOST. Consequently There Is No Feeling of Dizziness or Giddiness, and After Rising a Few Hundred Feet There Is No Sensation of Speed. Comparatively few persons can look down from a great beigbt witbout a creepy sensation running tbrougb the nerves and cbasing down tbe spine, and one would naturally think these unpleasant symptoms would be in tensified' it one were to rise several hundreds of feet in tbe air »D a flying machine. But that idea is a mistake, according to Mr. Charles C. Turner in an article in the Pall Mall Maga zine, In wbicb be tells how beginners are taught tbe use of tbe aeroplane and describes the sensations of flight. He says: "Tbe manner in wbicb a course of flight lessons begins depends chiefly on tbe weatber. If it is tine and calm a pupil is at once taken out for pas senger flights, sitting behind the teacher or beside him. according to tbe type of machine, and having noth ing to tbink about except tbe novelty of bis experiences and tbe new aspect in wbicb be sees familiar things. "His first flight is a great event in the career of tbe pupil, and when it is over be is anxious for tbe next. His estimate of the difficulties that lie before bim is more modest, and be is ready to besiege bis instructor with questions. He climbed into tbe pas senger's scat and gripped the stanch ions with both bands. He need not bave gripped them quite so bard, for be soon found that tbe motion of the machine was not in tbe least disturb ing. "To start it a mechanic stood behind the main planes and gave tbe propel ler a turn, and suddenly tbe engine was giving out a tremendous roar and making tbe machine vibrate. Other mechanics were holding on to the tail booms to prevent tbe iieroplane from shooting forward before tbe pilot was ready. "But almost Immediately the pas senger observed the pilot hold up one hand as a signal, and on tbe Instant tbe machine plunged forward over the ground like a swift motorcar. Before he had time to observe and note bis feelings the sensations bad changed. Tbe machine was traveling forward with perfect smoothness, the noise of tbe engine had curiously softened down, the. ground no longer raced be neath the ma chine, and be realized that he was flying and that already be was twenty, forty, fifty feet above tbe ground. "Flying bas been compared to many things, but in truth no comparison is good. Perhaps 1 may corrupt one or two common but false notions -on cerning It. "There is no sense of traveling nt a great height. There is not tbe slight est danger of giddiness. To me this gave no surprise, for. as every bal loonist knows, it matters not whether he looks down from 20 or 2.000 feet— the sensation of height is absent. "To take my own case, I cannot look down a 100 foot cliff for many sec onds before feeling unsafe, but I can look down from a balloon that is two miles above ground and can gaze at tbe scene below for half an hour witb out a qualm. It Is the experience of every aeronaut. "It is impossible also with reason able accuracy without tbe aid of an aneroid to estimate one's beigbt. Ton see trees far below you. and If you are high enough they appear to be mere bushes, but you cannot tell whether you are 400 feet op or 700. "Again, the sense of speed is almost entirely lost when you bave attained a beigbt of 300 or 400 feet. Tbe ground passes below you very slowly, while if you get up to SO0 or 1.000 feet It is only by steadily watching tbe ground that you perceive that yon are moving, let all tbe while there is that steady gale of wind upon tbe face that in forms you of your speed. "In descending a pupil notices tbat tbe speed of tbe ground rapidly accel erates. Tbe cbances are that he can not distinguish tbe moment when the landing wheels again come Into contact with the earth. Tbe machine moves forward over tbe ground until its mo mentum is exhausted, and be and tbe pilot then descend from their seats." The Doctor's Sin of Omission. Dorman in his "Primitive Supersti tions" tells of an Indian who bad been badly hurt by a grizzly bear. The medicine man prescribed a mixture of rattlesnakes' beads, wornout moc casins and chewing tobacco, seasoned with petroleum and red pepper, of which the patient was ordered to take a pint every half hour. "He was a brave man. but he died with tbe ut most expedition." and at the tribal in quest it was agreed that tbe remedy was faultless, but tbat death was due to tbe doctor's omitting to dance and yell.

A company playing "Hamlet" was forced to find an actor to play tbe sec ond gravedigger on account of tbe ill ness of tbe second comedian ot tbe company. Tbe only actor available was a variety performer who bad no reverence for Shakespeare and no re spect for the traditions of tbe classic drama. The second gravedigger was a comedy part, and be knew tbat be could "get away with it" When the first gravedigger threw off tbe waistcoat, revealing auother un derneath.' tbe audience tittered. Tbe removal of tbe secoud waistcoat brought a loud laugh, and tbe third produced a roar. The first gravedigger was delighted.' He bad never played to such an appreciative audience, and visions of good notices in tbe papers and a possible increase in salary be gan to loom up before bis eyes. As be threw off tbe fourth waistcoat be turned partially around, and tbe cause of tbe unusual bit was disclosed to him. The second gravedigger. being accus tomed to build ..laughs on lines and business of other actors, saw his op portunity and seized it. As fast as the first gravedigger would throw the waistcoats on the ground the variety comedian would pick them up and put them on. The new business was much funnier to the audience than the old, with which it was thoroughly familiar. Xot content with having stolen tbe laughs from the regular comedian in this scene, tbe new man went further. When the first gravedigger said to him. "Go. get tbee to Taugban: fetch me a stoup of liquor" (to which there is no reply in the text), the assistant sexton replied: "Yaughnn told me to tell you that you couldn't bave any more liquor from bim till you paid for the last you got."—Emmett C. King in Bookman. OL PERSIAN RUGS Why They Retain Their Sheen In Spite of Their Great Age. If you have ever seen a Persian rug fifty years old or older which bad been used only In its native country you bave doubtless observed tbat. though made of wool, it bad the sheen of velvet. This was due partly to the excellence of tbe dyes and the work manship, but partly also to the fact tbat it bad never known the touch of a shoe, but bad been walked over in stockinged feet. If a man should en ter your drawing room and stand on tbe sofa and upholstered chairs it would appear no more outrageous to you than it does to a Persian to walk with shoes upon his rug. It seems impossible that sucb a beautiful thing as a Persian rug should be produced on tbe rudest of looms, consisting, as they do. merely of crook ed, irregular beams of wood roughly fastened together. Tbe rude construc tion of the loom explains why it is that every genuine Persian rug of any length Is more or less crooked. This is because after part of it is woven It must be removed from the loom and lowered, and on so crude an affair it is Impossible to get the warp of the second part exactly straight with that of the first pari. Until quite recently each province had its own style of rug. each village Its own pattern, and yet each rug had an individuality of its own. and no two rugs were identical in design.. The weaver copied designs and effects from trees and flowers or from com mon objects In everyday use. Some times a verse from tbe Koran or a stanza of a poem in tbe graceful, in tricate Arabic character formed part of the pattern.—New York Sun. "Yiddish." "Yiddish," properly speaking, is not a language. It is a mixture of poor German, worse Hebrew and in Russia bas some Russian words added. It bas. however, a considerable litera ture, including a large number of newspapers and other periodicals, and is used colloquially by Russian. Polish and Hungarian Jews. In tbe United States it is spoken by more or less re cent immigrants only, their children absolutely refusing to use it, and their attempts to make them do so is tbe chief cause of tbe disagreement be tween them which the parents so bit terly complain of.—American Israelite. A Soldier's Reply. A soldier of Marshal Saxe's army, being discovered in a tbeft. was con demned to be banged. What he bad stolen might be worth 5 shillings. The marshal, meeting him as he was be ing led to execution, said to bim. "What a miserable fool you were to risk your life for 5 shillings!" "General." replied the soldier. "I have risked it every day for my pay. fivepence.' life. Tbis repartee saved bis The Best He Could Do. "Now. gentlemen." said the stage manager at rehearsal. "1 want you all to wear your heavy overcoats in this scene, as it is supposed to be an ex tremely chilly night." "I have no overcoat, sir," replied one •f tbe actors. Then a bright thought struck bim. "But 1 could put on my heavy underwear."—Boston Transcript How Could He Forget? She—Are you sure it was a year to day tbat we became engaged, dear? He—Yes.

HALLOWE'EN IS ONE OF RELICS OF PAGANISM MANY PARTIES APPROPRIATE TO THE SEASON ARE BEING PLANNED. Innocent Fun Will Reign Next Tues-| day Evening, but Police Will Not Tolerate Any Rowyism. Tuesday, October 31, is Halloween, and according 'o th-a superstitious of| olden times the witches, elves and! goblins will be abroad, if the proper^ charms are not prepared for protec tioi.. In this age Hallowean furnishes an! opportunity for pleasant parties at which many weird "stunts" are per-: formed, and the young people are al ready laying their plans t/r the -sven -ng, while the irresponsible small boy v/ill be in evidence with his window "tic-tac." I In England, October 31, or Hallow Eve is the vigil of All Saints' day, I and has given ris-a to a variety of su-j perstitions ad chams for protections, from the evil influences of the| witches. These have descended to us. in such "stunts" as diving for apples) and suspending an apple by a string.' and then biting it with the hands tied I behind the back. Wh.le Chief of Police McDonald has as yet issued no orders to the officers in regard to the conduct on Tuesday night next, yet it is believed that hej will not object to a little harmless} fun on the part of the boys and girls,! but certain it is that there will be no, rowdyism or destruction of property permitted and the young people, should govern themselves accord-:! ingb. I In the modern celebration of Hal loween how many recognize the relics of paganism which are so clearly de fined? With all its' .pranks and more or less practical jokes there is always an atmosphere of mystery in the sea son which is -enjoyed by young and old, particularly the young, for Hal loween seems a day set apart for theiP benefit. The old have tne memories^ of past pleasures and pranks experi enced on that day. One does not wonder in stumbling upon Christianity interspersed to a great extent with paganism in re-j mote corners of the world, but in prac tical America. where such things have given way to more modern ideas, Hal-1 loween is about the only trace left in th-3 line of holiday celebrations, that may attach itself to pagan festivals. The first religious celebration of.. AH Saints' day was in the Seventh century in Rome at the time when ihe Pantheon was converted into a Christian temple. The day is observed by the Catholics, as a rule, and in many cases by the Episcopal churches, with regular services. The old Eng lish idea of Halloween was practically the same as the Irish May eve super stition and as the German "Walpugis nacht." The belief among the Scottish peo ple was that those who^yere born .on Halloween were given a second sight and were able to communicate with the spirits. The Germans tfhought that tbe day was the annual holiday of witches, ghosts, etc., and that on that evening fairies were abroad to work mischief or miracles and that spirits of the dead were'visible andj Whe powars of the invisible world were loosed. I held by the Scotch, Sir Walter Scott in "The Monastery," gave Mary Ave nal the power to see the White Lady, invisible to less gifted visions. Yeats in his dramatization of May eve, The Land of the Heart's Desire, used the tradition as the main basis of his plot. spirit of Johannistag. Other famous masterpieces in literature which breathe the spirit of All Saint's day are Faust, the Brocken scene of which is laid on that foundation The Temp est, Midsummer Night's Dream. scenes from Peer Gynt, and the wood 2 for Johannistag is another name for body contains sulphur." this season and Sundermann used this "In what amount?" season conspicuously in Fires of St. "Oh. in varying quantities."

FO THE SUNDAY DINNER But They'll Taste Just as Good on Saturday Open Evenings Until 8:30 McCONKEY Children are Entitled to Underwear Comfort and Fit as Well as Grown-Ups They get both in Athena Underwear. Children from ages about two to six are broad in stature in comparison with height, while those from six to sixteen are usually tall and thin. These facts have heretofore been over looked in*designing children's underwear. Athena underwear for children is sized by ages—not numbers. Ask for "age two" for a two-year-old child, "age ten" for a ten-year-old child, and so on. This system of sizing insures a proper fit, age for age, and makes it easy for the mother to get garments that fit correctly, without many trips to the store.. For Women No woman can ever know real comfort in knit underwear until she becomes acquainted with the perfect shaping of Athena underwear. It fits snugly to the figure—does not wrinkle under the corset. It is exquisitely trimmed. In all fabrics, weights and shapes at the price you usually pay.
