This achievement included the de
feat of R. Norris Williams, 1918
champion and one of the greatest
tennis players of a decade.
Niles' achievements are the more
noteworthy on account of his age. He
is almost 50, an age at which most
athletes have retired.
Niles. first achieved fame in 1898
when he was a star at Harvard. That
year he broke into the big ten in
seventh place. Two years later he
was ranked fourth.
That was his best ranking until this

You Can't Imagine Flying, Says Mineola
Officer Makes Other Sports Seem Flat
By Sergeant George Dodge.
(Mineola Aviation School.)
How do you feel when you make
your first flight?
It's hard to describe, but—you don't
feel anything like you expect to.
Before I enlisted I tried to imagine
flying. I thought of my sensations
on all the high places I had been.
But It isn't like that at all. There is
no more of that kind of feeling than
when you are riding in an elevated
train. The idea of height never
bothers you.
At first you never know when the
airplane leaves the ground, the start
is so Bmooth. Suddenly you find
yourself in the air with the earth
dropping -away.
When the air is smooth you have
the sensations of rushing along a
boulevard in a motor car at a mile a
minute, combined with the buoyancy
of drifting down-stream In a canoe.
When the air is choppy it is more like
riding a fliwer over a rough road.
Gliding or climbing rapidly is much
like riding on a gigantic shoot-the
It is remarkable how quickly you
to® complete detachment from the
earth, absolutely Independent of It
and safer the farther away from it
you are.
New York, Aug. 29.—New York
easily won the second game of the
series from Pittsburgh yesterday. The
Giants^ won to the fourth, driving
Grimes out of the box when they
scored five runs on two doubles, four
singles, a base on balls, three steals
and ah error. Herzog's fielding fea
tured. Score:
Tou never seem to be flying away
from the earth so much as it seems to
be dropping away from you.
The only time you become acutely
conscious of the earth is when you
are coming down for a landing. It
seems to be rushing up with incredible
speed. Then all of a sudden, if every
thing has been properly managed, you
find yourself back with no more shock
than when you put on the brakes in
an automobile.
I romemb^r the first time the in
structor started to make a spiral with
me in the machine. I was so fascin
ated I suppose I was not noticing Just
what was happening. I looked up,
saw one of the wings lifted high
above my seat, and caught a glimpse
of the earth below apparently tilted
to one side.
I thought at first we had looped the
loop. My stomach got wabbly. Then
things seemed to come Into perspec
tive, my stomach got on an even keel,
and I saw just what had been happen
When you are driving the sense of
identity with a powerful machine
brings an exhilaration nothing!, can
equal motor-boating, tobogganing,
and auto racing all seem stale, flat
and unprofitable.

The Pendulum of Pate.
The next day, Thursday, was one
of hectic excitement for Gibraltar.
Fpcus of the concentrated attention
of town and Rock was the battle
.fleet, clogging all the inner harbors
with its great gray hulks. Super
dreadnaughts like the standing walls
of a submerged Atlantis, lay close to
the quays, barges lashed alongside
the folded booms of their torpedo
nets. Behind them, battle cruisers ana
scouts formed a. protecting cordon.
Faf out across the entrance to the
harbor, the darting black shapes of
destroyers on constant guard were
shuttles trailing their threads of
smoke through the' blue web of sea
and sky. .Between fleet and shore
snorting cockleshells of launches es
tablished lanes -of communication
khaki of the Rock's defenders and
blue of the -fleet's officers met, pass
ed and repassed. In wardroom and
club glasses were touched in pledges
to the united service. The high com
mander of the Mediterranean fleet
paid his official visit to the gover
nor of Gibraltar, and the governor, in
turn, was received with honors on the
quarter deck of the flagship. But
under the superficial courtesies of
fanfare and present arms the stern
business of coaling fleet progressed at
high tension. It was necessary th£U
all of the fighting machines have their
bunkers filled by noon,of the follow
ing day. Every minute thai the Chan
nel up under the murky North Sea
fogs lay without fujl strength of her
fleet protection was added danger, to
That morning, Captain Woodhouse
went on duty in the signal tower. Ma
jor Bishop, his superior, had sum
moned him to his office immediately
after breakfast and assigned him to
his tisks there. Sufficient proof,
Woodhouse assured' himself with ela
tion, that he had come through the
fire in General Crandall's library, test
ed and, found genuine. Through this
pretext and that, he had been kept
off duty the day before, denied access
to the slender stone tower high up
on the Rock's crest which was the
motor center of Gibraltar's ganglia
of defense.
The small office in which Wood
house was installed was situated at
the very top of the tower—a room
glassed on four sides like the lantern
room of a lighthouse, and provided
with telescope, a telephone switch
board, range finders, and all the com
plicated machinery of gun-fire con
trol. On one side were trestle boards
supporting charts of the ranges—
figured areas representing every
square yard of water from the near
er harbor below out to the farthest
reaching distance of the monster dis
appearing guns.. A second graphic
sheet showed the harbor and anchor
ages and entrance to the straits, this
map was thickly spotted with little,
red, numbered dots—the mines. Sown
like a turnip field with these dead
ly capsules of destruction were all the
waters thereabouts their delicate ten
drils led under water and through
conduits in the Rock up to this slen
der spire called the signal tower. As
he climbed the winding stairway, to
his newly assigned post, .Woodhouse
had seen painted on a small wooden
door just below the room he was to
occupy the single white letter "D."
Room D—where the switches were,
where a single sweep of the hand
could loose all the Bidden death out
there in the crowded harbor—It lay
directly below his feet.
Captain Woodhouse's duties were
not arduous. He had as single com
panion a sergeant of the signal ser
vice, whose post was at the window
overlooking the harbor. The sergeant
read the semaphore message from the
slender Signal, arm. on the flagship's
bridge—directions for the coal barges'
movements, business-like orders to be
transmitted to the quartermaster In
charge of the naval stores ashore, and
such humdrum of routine. These
Woodhouse recorded and forwarded to
their various destinations over the
He had much time for thought—
and much to think about.
Yesterday's scene in the library of
Government House—his grilling by
the two suspicious men, when a false
answer on his part would have been
the first step toward a firing squad.
Yes, and what had followed between
himself and the little American—the
girl who had protected and aided him
—ah, the pain of that trial was hard
ly less poignant that had been the ter
ror of the one preceding it. She had
asked him to prove to her that he was
not what she thought him. Before
another day was passed she would be
out of his life and would depart be
lieving—yes, convinced—that the task
he had set himself to do was a dis
honorable one. She could not know
that the soldiers of the Hidden Army
have claim to heroism no less than
they who Join battle under the sun.
But he w£s to. see Jane Gersoh once
more Woodhouse caught at this cir
cumstance as something precious. To
night at. Government House Lady
Crandall's dinner to the refugee
Ainoricans on the eve of their depart
ure would offer a last opportunity..
How could he turn it to the desire of
his heart?
One more Incident of a crowded
yesterday gave Woodhouse a crust for
rumination—the unmasking Jalmlhr
Khan, the Indian, had elected for
himself at that critical minute when
it lay in his power to betray the
stranger in the garrison. The cap
tain reviewed the incident with great
satisfaction—how of a sudden the
wily Indian had changed from an ene
my holding a man's life in his hand
to that "friend in the Government
House," of-whose existence the cau
tious Aimer had hinted but whose
Identity' he" had kept concealed. Ai
mer had said that this "friend'7 comd
lay his .hand on the combination to
Room in the signal tower when the
proper moment arrived. Now that he
knerw Jalmlhr Khan in his true stripe,
Woodhouse made no doubt of his abll
lty to fulfill Aimer's prophecy.
And the proper moment would 'be
this night! Tonight on the eve of
the great fleers sailing, what Wood
house had come to Gibraltar to do
must be accomplished or not at all.
The man's nerves were taut, and he
rose to step to the bayward window,
there to look- down on the embattled
splendor of England's defense. Sttfel
forts ranged all ln rows, awaiting but
the opportunity to loose their light
nings of obliteration against the Ships
of an enemy. Cardboard ships! Shad
ows of dreains! In Room'D, just be
low his feet, a hand on the switches—
a downward push, and then
Lady Crandall's dinner in Govern-:
ment' House was In full tide of hilar
ity Under the heavy groined eeiUng
the spread table with its napery ana
silver was the one spot of light in the
long shadowed dining room.. Round

of freedom already, in sight and un
der the warming influence of an
American hostess' real American
meal they were'swept off their feet
1?y high spirits almost childlike. Hen
ry J. Sherman, Kewanee's vagrant
son returning from painful pilgrimage,
sat at1 the right of Lady- Crandall
his pink face' was glowlrfg with hu
mor. To Consul Reynolds, who swore
he would have to pay for thus neg
lecting his consulate' for so much as
two hpurs, had fallen the honor or
escorting Mr*. Sherman to table. Wil
ly Kimball, polished as to shirt bosom
and sleek htUiyvJiad eyes and ears for
none but blithe Kitty. Next to Gen
eral Crandall 'sat Jane Gerson, radiant
In a dinner gown of tricky gause over
laid on silk. At her right was Cap
tain Woodhouse, In proper uniform
dinner coat faced with red and gold.
Of the whole, company, Woodhouse
alone appeared constrained. The girl
by his side had been cool in her greet
ing that evening to hiB conversation
al sallies she had answered with in
difference, and now at table she divid
ed her favors between General Cran
dall and the perky little consul across
the table. It seemed to Woodhouse
that she purposely added a lash of
cruelty to her joy at the approaching
departure on the morrow.
"Oh, you' must all listen to this!"
Kitty Sherman, commanded the atten
tion of the table, with a clapping 6t
hands. "Go ahe^d* Will he had the
funniest accident—4ell them about it"
Young Kimball looked conscious
and began to stammer.
"You're getting us all excited, Wil
ly," Henry J. boomed from the oppo
site side of the table. "What hap
"Why—ah—really quite ridiculous,
you know. Hardly a matter to talk—
ah—talk about." Willy fumbled the
rose on the lapel of his jacket and
searched for words. "You see, this
morning I thinking very hard
about what I would do when I got
back to Kewanee—oh, quite enthusi
astic I am about the little town now—
and I—well, I mean to .say, I got Into
my bath with.-my wrist watch on."
Shouts of laughter added to the
youth's confusion. Sherman leaned far
across the table and advised him in
a hoarse whisper:
"Buy a dollar Ingersoll, Willy. It
"Well, you might give him one of
yours, father," Kitty put in. In quick
defense. "Anybody who'd carry two
watches around
"Two watches?" Lady Crandall
was Interested.
Henry J. beamed expansively, pull
ed away his napkin, and proudly lift
ed from each* waist coat pocket a
ponderous waich, Hnked by the thick
chain passing 'through a buttonhole.'
"This one"—hei ralsed the right
hand timepiece1—"tells the time of tne
place I happen to be In—changed it
so often I guess the works'U never be
the same again. But this one Is my
pet. Here's Kewanee time—not touch
ed since we pulled out of the C. B.
& Q. station on the 20th of last May."
He turned the face around for the
others to read. "Just three In the
afternoon there now. Old Ed Porter's
got the Dally Enterprise out on the
street and he's tilted baok in his of
fice chair, readln' the Chicago Trib
une that's just got In on the two-five
train. The boys at the bank-aTe gdln'
out to the country club for golf—
young Pete Andrews wearin' the
knickerbockers his. wife cut down
from his old overcoat sort ofa horse
blanket pattern, you might say. The
town's just dozin' in the afternoon
sun and—and not giving .a hang
whether Henry J. Sherman and family
gets back or not."
"You're an old dear!" Lady Cran
dall bubbled. "Some day Kewanee
will erect a statue to you."
The talk turned to art, and the man
from, Kewanee even had the stolid
general wiping the tears from his eyes
by his' description and .criticism, of
some of the masters his wife had trot
ted him around to admire.
"Willy, you'll be interested to know
we got a painter in Kewanee now,"
Hpnry J. cried. '"Member young
Frank Coales—old Henry Coales* son?
Well, he turned out to be an artist
Too bad, too his folks was fine peo

strong about art Painted a war pic

Couldn't find a buyer right away, so
he turned it over to Tim Burns, who
keeps the saloon on Main street. Been
busy ever since, sorta taking it out
in trade, you might say.'*
Table talk was running at a gray rate
when Mrs..Sherman,'who had sent fre
quent searching glanced at/ Captain
Woodhouse over the nodding buds ,of
the flower piece in the center of the
board, suddenly broke out:
"Ah, Captain Woodhouse, now I
remember where I have seen you be

well toward the top, offerings'being

close was weak 1 to 1 1-4 cents low
er, with December $1.07 7-8 to' $1.08,
and May at $1.05 1-4 to 8-8c. Oats
followed the trend of corn and-finish

wheat was 8 to 10c lower. Provisions
advanced 10 to 90 cents.
Colder weather In the northwest
with a light frost -reported as far

Oats stubbornly resisted selling
