Starting from Crystal pallce shortly before noon Willows steered his ma chine over the very heart of the city and the noon crowds in the street were electrified at the strange spec tacle of the man-bird soaring above the roofs of buildings. . Traffls came to a halt In the busy streets and thousands .crowded the streets and parks, gazing upward at the daring aeronaut. The aviator traversed the entire city, sweeping In circles above the housetopi. After crossing the length of the city he circled back towards Crystal palace, while beneath him the roofs became black with people. Hard for the Police. 'The police had a difficult time han- . dllng the crowds. The streets became so Jammed that busses and tram cars bad- to halt. Street crossings were blockaded and for a time traffic was suspended In the busiest thorough fares. .As Willows sailed gracefully around the dome above 8t. Paul's the crowds In the street were hushed into awed alienee. But later this gave way. to the wildest of scenes when the aviator dipped towards earth at the end of his daring voyage. As the aviator commenced his voy age from Crystal palace the news aped like wildfire through the city. The crowds about the starting place were augmented, by. hundreds and thousands. As It became evident that the aeronaut would be successful In h daring undertaking the enthusiasm Jn the streets broke all bounds.

The race was in a dense fog. and lasted forty minutes. By skilful jockeying Johnstone managed to keep In the lead by quick doubling at the turns, and even outdistanced his rival to some ex tent in the stretches. But his motor lost its power at last and he was passed by Graham-White who flew in the fog until an hour and sixteen minutes had elapsed. Cunning Connie Fooled Wise Story of Tricks Athletics' Manager Would Work When He Was a Catcher His Strategy Saved Many Games. They tell a lot of good stories about stuff Connie Mack pulled off when he used to catch behind the bat and talk ed opponents into going out Mack was with Pittsburg and Gum- bert was pitching. Chicago, with only one run needed to tie and two out, had the bases filled and Anson un. The old man was theror of all pitchers In that dayj andjjfer landed harder on a bait than when a hit meant runs. But Anson was the perfect judge of ball and never would aim at bad ones. The ball at which he swung had to cut the plate.' On this occasion Gumbert was a trifle wild, and the first two balls were wide. The third cut the plate, but Anse let it go. The next was another strike, but still the old man waited. He could hit just as well with two strikes as none, and anyway a base on balls would tie the score. It was . a critical situation, for If Gumbert put that next ball over it was a cinch that the old man would land on it hard, and perhaps break up the game. The catcher of today would have waited like a sheep and let the pitcher work out his own salvation. but the backstops of that day were resourceful. Mack thought it was up to him, so he ran down to Gumbert and gave him the Injunction to pitch the next ball I ust a little wide of the plate, and then MYSTERIOUS IS DEATH OF YOUNG WOMAN (Continued From Page One.) ent . It is claimed that little was said at the dinner. The Thome girl, according to Pros ecutor Ladd, left the table first, going to a dentist. , ' . Sitting in silence for several min utes. Mrs. Wicks also arose and left the family gathering, and went toward the canal, according to Wicks. Thorne and Barnes, after visiting Myrtle Thorne at the dentist's, left at 2 o'clock for RuBhvllle. According to Prosecutor Ladd, the husband showed little agitation over the death of his wife. Cambridge Is aroused over the strange death, following - the many tragedies that have occurred In and near Cambridge during the last year and a half. Only a few weeks ago an Italian was killed in a shooting affair at a railroad construction camp near town. Several months ago Mrs. Frank Allison was brutally murdered and her house burned, partially consuming the body. Other killings have taken place In railroad ramps near the town. Wicks Is a common laborer. His wife Is said by friends to have been a very pretty woman and extremely pleasant. She was only 23 years of age. DIG SWISS EXHIBIT (American News Service.)

Mack Once Old Cap. Anson stay in position to pitch, waiting for a signal from Mack. Gumbert curved one about eight inches outside the plate, and Anson never moved to hit it. "Good strike. Ad!" yelled Connie, as he grabbed off his mask and started for the bench, as though the side were out. "Strike!" shouted Anson, wheeeling half around to the umpire to protest "I didn't say so," remarked .the arbi trator. "Three balls." Before Anson could turn back to po sition Mack gave the sign to Gumbert. Ad sent the ball straight over the heart. Nothing in Mack's attitude told that he was expecting the pitch. He didn't have his mask on, he wasn't in position to catch, for he had been standing three feet away from the plate to distract Anson's attention. Anson never got his bat off his shoulder. "Three strikes!" yelled the umpire Connie just managed to bat the ball down and touch the home plate, thus retiring the man, who was on third. Anson kicked and stormed for twen ty minutes, but there was no revers ing the decision, for he had never been out of the box, time wasn't called and Gumbert had been in a legal 'po sition to pitch when the ball was deliv ered.

WOMAN CAIIDIDAT Judging from the rapidity with which Richmond's merchants and manufacturers are signifying their in tention of exhibiting in the Fall Festi val Industrial Parade this feature of the 1910 Festival will be an unusual success. In response to the letters sent out by the Committee in charge,-postals are being received, which in almost all cases are entries. With its six divisions based upon industries repre sented the parade will doubtless ex ceed in length and quality the parades of former years, and will show in an impressive way, to the local and visit ing public, the great variety and ex tent of Richmond's industries. It is hoped that all entries will be received by September 15th, in order that proper case may be given to plac ing exhibitors, and to planning for mustering the parade. THIS IS JERSOUAL Prof. Asks Spinsters What They Would Do If They Became Mothers. LECTURES ON CHILDREN Muncie, Ind, Sept. 10. "What would you spinsters do," asked Professor Arthur Holms, of the University of Pennsylvania, as he waved his arms comprehensively over the audience of teachers attending the annual Dela ware county teachers' institute, "if suddenly there were thrust upon you the duties of wifehood and mother hood?" There was a rustle throughout, the assembly and a passing of whispers back and t forth. Apparently . such, ,.a condition liad never before . been brought to the attention .of the au dience, or such a possibility consider ed. "How many of you," the speaker continued "know anything understand ing and not pedagogically, of the child mind, the child intellect, the childish idea of life and of living, and, finally, what do you know of love. When a Boy Passes a Note. . "Supposing you see in one of your classes a little boy in the act of slip ping a love note to the little girl that sits in an adjoining seat, do you know what to do? Do you know what I have known you to do? The teacher, the principal of the school and any other powerful 'authority' that may be at hand, will rush down upon the unfortunate boy and girl with an im perious demand for a surrender of 'the papers. If the characters were older it would savor entirely of the ten-twenty-thirty melodramas, but as it is It is only pitiful because of the total ignorance and lack of sympathy of the teachers. Instead of trying to deal understanding with the primal instinct of man, the Instinct of love, and treating it is natural and pure and holy,' you try to make it something half criminal and thereby conjure up in the minds of the growing boy and girl ideas that would have a piece there except for your wrongful in terpretation of innocent acts. "It is time for the veil to be lifted. It is time to treat of matters that are of highest import to the race in a sane, redblooden, sympathetic way i and not try to outlaw nature as a j criminal. We are not barbarians and i are not, except remotely, products of the dark ages. Married Women Teachers. Some states have passed laws against allowing married women to be teachers In the public schools. What is wanted is that not alone married women, but mothers maternal, child! loving, husband loving women be teachers in our schools. , I may be an' iconoclast, an image breaker, and I hope I am. While I have said earlier In this institute that believe the school system in the United States is superior to that of. any other country, I wish I might be able to wield the ax that would tear it all down and allow us to build anew upon the solid foundation of human sympathy for children, human under standing, fitness for practical life and love. And I say that of all the es sentials of life, love is the most im portant. Nothing is worth while, it seems to me, without it. Should Be in Love. "I hope that some day the first question asked of every teacher ap plying for a license to teach school will be. "Have you ever been In love? That is what you teachers, most of you need. .It is to be in love now or to have been in love some time, so that your sympathies and your understand ing of children may be alert. Be In love with something , all - the time, whatever else you may do. You can at leasts be In love with the child ren of your class and with your work. You can at least forget that you are a pedagogue with certain rules to en force, and remember that nm in a J human being with Jove to give and Take this letter! ) (TELL HER ) ;et busy i've blek THereS alady out A I'm out I VWTfNq AN HOUR FOR I SIDE WANTS To f U J- -Ofru. y SEE YOU. J Hr &?EK&) I BEAT IT J ' busStSejheaht ' Gourd Industry to Develope San Antonio, Tex., Sept. 10. Gourd: not exactly the old Jashioned kind thai we drank out of at the well, but t homebred variety called the dish-raf gourd, is the newest industry develop ed in Texas and it holds out big possi bilities of profit. . Albert Schwenke, formerly of Ger many, now located in Harris county, on the Gulf coast, is the farmer who has demonstrated the possibilities of the dish-rag gourd. The fiber of this gourd is extensively used in Germany for manufacturing the coarser forme of crash and burlap. The available supply is limited to Japan and Africa and in these countries certain pests having attacked the gourd the German manufacturers are up against a short age in the crop. Mr. Schwenke found out by corres pondence that six millions pounds were needed to supply these manufac turers so he started in to experiment. By cross colonization be produced a product splendidly adapted lo Texas conditions. A year or two of experi mentation has proven that on insects attack this plant and that it flourishes. The gourds grow from 18 to 20 inches long and for a gourd this size the German manufacturers pay three cents. Mr. Schwenke says that he has been able to grow about three thousand plants to the acre and that by pinching off the smaller gourds each plant will produce ten gourds of - love to receive. 'Love leaveneth all things.' "Now, how is a teacher to instruct a boy and girl who are in the early stages of love fever innocent and harmless- enough, as It always is if she herself has never experienced the sensation? Somebody or other has said that 'to the impure, all things are impure, and so the teacher that does not understand or has passed the age of understanding vital things, may see harm where there is none.

Nees, the state horticultur st, reports that he examined the Tourd plantation and found the plants 'rained on trelises 18 or 20 inches ipart in rows and connectetd by a ine of one by four and built on posts 12 feet high connected by perpendicu lar wires for the plants to run on. He reports that the dry weather did not seem to agect the plant and that the product by first tearing off the rind and then steeping in a vat is easily prepared for the market, the fiber , be ing separated from the pulp and the seed. Prof. Nees also reports that no great capital is necessary to engage in this industry, the cheapest and simplest agricultural, implements being used In the cultivation and the crop is very easy to harvest being large and easily picked. No costly store house is re quired and the product can be kept any length of time without spoiling, There is no duty on the import of dish-rag gourds In Germany, freight charges amounting to $5.00 for 2,240 pounds and as the fiber Is very light the freight charge is a small item. The gourd grows on poor and appar ently neglected land, preferably with clay subsoil. Prof. Nees believes the industry will grow to great .dimensions in this country.
