Leroy Taylor of New York Alter
Distance Mark
Possible to Cover Air Line of 180
Miles In Forty HoursLeo Stevens
Professional Aeronaut to Accom
pany Clubman to Beat Count de U
Vaulxs Flight of 1193 Miles
Hope of breaking tho worlds record
for balloon flights which has stool
for ten years possesses Leroy Taylor
a member of tho Now York Yacht the
Larchmont Yacht Lambs and other
clubs and ho will try to bring the
trophy to America by a flight to start
within the next few weeks from Waco
His associate will be Leo Stevens
a well known professional balloonist
The balloon is to bo tho largest spher
ical ono ever made
Waco was selected as tho starting
point after much consideration In
which the meteorological observations
of the weather bureau figured largely
Favorable wind currents will give n
balloon ascending there the longest
possible flight in tho general direction
of New York
Wont Face Ocean Dangers
Waco Is sufficiently inland almost to
obviate the danger of being blown out
to sea There are few mountain
ranges to be passed and these are of
secondary Importance so far as size
and effect upon winds arc concerned
Again Waco is within tho zone of
comparatively steady blowing winds
at certain seasons of the year It Is in
the hope of getting one from the south
west that the flight has been timed for
The balloon will carry water and
provisions for a month This Is con
sidered essential as long stretches of
desert land must be passed over and
the aeronauts may have to land where
water and food are unobtainable
Taylor is an enthusiastic amateur at
the balloon game Ho has been In sew
oral competitions and recently flew
from Pittsflcld Mass to a point near
there In a snowstorm Ho helped or
ganize the filers among members of
the New York Yaoht Larchmont
Yacht and Lambs clubs who are in
terested in balloons or aeroplanes
Tho present record for length of
flight Is held by Count do la Vnulx
who with St Victor rode from Phi
cennes France to Korostychew Rus
I sin 1103 miles In October 1000 They
were not in the air long enough how
ever to give them the endurance rec
ord This Is held by Clifford Harmon
who In October 1910 in a flight from
St Louis remained aloft for forty
eight hours and twentysix minutes
though he covered nowhere near the
distance the Frenchman did
Just Missed Records
In the same month Hawley and Post
made their sensational flight from St
Louis It will be remembered they
ivere lost to the world for about a
week then their safe landing was re
ported from the Canadian backwoods
It was established that they had re
nalned up aloft for fortyfive hours
and Hftyslx minutes and hnd covered
1171 miles both performances just
short of worlds records
On an air line the distance from
iVnco to New York is approximately
1800 miles which under highly favor
itig conditions could be covered readily
In less than forty hours This would
nean traveling at an average speed
of a little less than forty miles an
hour The balloon now being built is
being developed along lines that it Is
toped will permit It to remain aloft
rom sixty to seventytwo hours The
irdlnnry duration of a balloons gas
barge Is about fortyeight hours
The craft will take months to build
It will have a lifting power of 13000
pounds As tho bog and basket car
ylng two men and fully equipped will
retell about 5000 pounds this will
allow 8000 pounds of ballast The
ng Is built of two thicknesses of spd
Inl linen with rubber between It
hus been found that linen Is far bet
tel for such use than silk not alone
on account of Its greater toughness
but because the silk Is a too ready con
ductor for electricity with Its attend
nnt danger to tho gas

Remarkable Will and Funeral of a
Queer Englishwoman
The will of Mrs Margaret Thomp
son which is preserved as a curiosity
at Somerset House England Is a trib
ute to the delights and consolations of
snuff The testatrix directed that In
her collln should be burled with her all
her handkerchlefsaud sulllclcnt of the
best Scotch snuff to cover her body
This she preferred to flowers as noth
ing could be more fragrant and so re
freshing to me as that precious pow
der Further the six greatest snuf
takers In the parish of St James
Westminster were to be her bearers
Six old maids each bearing in her
hand a box filled with the best Scotch
snuff to take for their refreshment IS
they walked were to bear the pall
Before tho corpse the minister was to
walk carrying and partaking of a
pound of snuff At every twenty yards
a handful of snuff was to be delivers
to the bystanders and at the door of
the testatrixs house were to bo placed
two bushels of tho same quality of
snuff for gratuitous distribution In
order to insure the carrying out of her
wishes the testatrix made the legacies
given by the will dependent upon an
exact and literal fulfillment of tho
conditions above named In closing
she bade all concerned to regard snuff
as tho grand cordial of nature

The Price of a Life
According to AngloSaxon law ev
cry mans life including that of the
king was valued at a fixed price JIIH
any one who took it could commute the
offense by a money payment upon a
fixed scale The life of a peasant was
reckoned to be worth 200 shillings
that of n man of noble birth 1200 shil
lings and the killing ot a king involved
the regicide in a payment of 7200 still
lings It has been pointed out that the
heir to tho throne could thus get rid of
the existing occupant by murdering
him and thereafter handing over tin
fine according to tho scale to the ex
chequer when his offense would be
purged and his money would come
back to himself for In those days the
sovereign received all fines as personal
perquisites There is very little doubt
that these roujjh means were practl
cally applied In the case of some rulers
of England in the I prcconquest period
