Before Shows Haw Aeroplane Vill Fly ' Machine Is Built. As the fast passenger-train speeds you across a steel suspension bridge, the thought may come to you, "How wonder ful that these trusses bear this heavy traffic and never give way!" Naturally you feel proud of the 20th century and of the bridge, one of its great engineering feats. Possibly, says George F.

Yet the processes by which aircraft are built a fineness parallelled in no and in few pieces of ma- bave reached other vehicle chinery. At one of Recil Wins Missouri. ST. LOUIS, Nov. 8.

Them little y. Some men are so convinced they're un lucky that they mis good luck when it comes their way. the big airplane plants at Garden City, Long Island, there is much equipment of this high scientihc quality for instance, three wind-tunnels and the wind-tunnel 'model-shop. A wind-tunnel is a device by which tbo scientist can show how an aeroplane ,will fly without, going to the trouble of dying or of building it. . Imagine a huge tube 70 feet in length and from seven to 17 feet in diameter, suspended by steel wires in a great room. At one end, on a platform, is a 400-horse-powor motor with a specially de signed propeller, which wicks the air through the tunnel at speeds which may approach 100 miles per hour. Present el y there enters a member of the research staff with what looks like a toy a beautiful aeroplane scarcely a foot and a half in wing-spread, with, ma hogany body and aluminum wings. He, too, mounts the stairs and gravely sets the plane on a steel pedestal projecting up into the tunnel from the lower floor of the experimental chamber. "Just a balance." the scientist ex plains with regard to the affair; "weighs like the grocery-store scales, only much better: weighs wind-pressures instead of potatoes, and reads to one-ten-thousandth of a pound." . AH this may seem a bit childish. What can a toy, a balance and a bit of wind do to make aeroplanes safe? Everything. Science has gone far. far beyond Darius Green. It has not oi im proved ti at yon can learn to fly from a barn, but in a barn. The miniature aero plane is a model constructed to the scale f , engineering plans for the contem plated machiue. It is accurate in shape to the thousandth of an inch. The tun nel is also accurate. It has been built after a study of all important wind tunnels, and is believed to be the larg est in the world. By means of model, air flow, and balance, engineers can fig- ' ure mathematically what will happen in the air when the full-sized aeroplane flies. The largo planes have the same shape as the small models. Those in charge of the work can read the air pressures on any part of the model, and tl e rushing of the air past the miniature plane is equivalent for all working pur poses, to the rushing of an. actual plane against the air. The result is that the "trial flights" f one of the sutiial machines, produced after such exhaustive tests, is no longer an experiment. What the aeroplane can do can bo prophesied exactly. The wind tunnel 1 as. to date made 100 per cent correct predictions as to the general be havior of these machines. magnificent tables and vaces of lapis lazuli, and works :of art presented by the emperors of China and Japan, were among the objects s!d to foreigners, par ticularly Italians,' who paid larpe amounts for their (purchases. The old and new court palaces, the court stables, and- a number of famous castles, villas and estates in the provinces were the principal buildings sold. When we hear'a man telling about the desirability of a "quick turn-over" in stock we wonder if ho wouldn't make a hit in 'the iiap-jack industry. Holyoke Transcrint. i BIRTHS.
