C America Leads Klf , the World In XWS Aviation 1 J By ORV,LLE WRIGHT, Aeropline tUi Inventor HMERICANS nro not the KNTIIUSIASTIO PATRONS of air sports that the French are. We have tho men, we have tho machines, but contests, flights of endurance, great aviation meets, cost money not only to the projectors, but to aviators they cost moro in real cash than the general public would believe. That is where the sport in this country is WEAK. Not that the absenco of this patronage hinders the businesslike development of tho aeroplane in its mechanical details, but prizes for real efficiency and endurance, rather than for daredevil feats, would encourage our aviators to work for SUBSTANTIAL improvements. Our LEADERSLTTP, both in construction and in the art of flying, was recognized by tho European aviators at tho Belmont meet.

FIRST CHLOROFORMING. The Drug Was Used by Sir J.Y.Simp son in 1847. Sir Jaino Young Plmpaon, the dis so rcr of the anaesthetic properties of euloroform. was born on Jun" 7. 111 at Bathgate, in" Llnllthwo.vs.iire, the youngest of the fiev'en sons of ihe village baker; and the editors of the Edinburgh Medical Journal converted their Issue for June of till year Into a centenary number In tumor 'of the event. Th great turning point of Sinip.-on's career was, 'of course, tne employment of chloroform, and the circumstances connected with the dis covery of its properties are well told by Sir Alexander. Sulphuric ether had been first ued as an anaesthetic in surgery In IMi", and Dr. Simpson determined, as so n a a suitable case presented. Itself, to test Its eHlcaey in subduing the pains of childbirth. He first used it for this purpose on January 19. 1R47; 1 nnd although It more than answered his expectations lie thought that some still better agent for the suppression t sensation might possibly be found, and determined to experiment upon himself with a varie ty of volatile Hunl'ls supplied to him by chemists. Af er 'many disappoint ments a trial was made of the ter chloride of formyle, which liad been In business will be your advertising doorway of Smeeess O I suggested by Mr. Waldle of Liverpool, but had been first rejected as too heavy. On the night of November 4. 1S47, Dr. Simpson and his two assistants, Dr. George Keith and Dr. Matthews Duncan, fut a' a table, each of them provided with a tumbler Into whlc.i a portion of terchlorlde had been poured, and from which they Inhaled aa they conversed. They were agreeably sur prised by the pleasurable nensatl'tis arising from the new agent, and their next consciousness was that of tlnding themselves on the floor, more or le.ss under the table at which they had been sitting, but in other respects uif Injured. The (Inhalation was repeat ed many times that mlfit, and the new dru? waj administered to Simp son's niece, Miss Alice Petrle, under the supervision of the three doctor.' who had themselves been the first subjects. The chemical name was soon abandoned lor the simpler "chlo roform," under which the preparation became unhersnlly known nad used; and one of the greatest discoveries of modern times was practically com plete. Of the suffering which chloroform has prevented, of the operations which it has rendered possible, and of the live which It has saved It would n w be superfluous to speak, but The Jour nal contains Home curious evidence of the opposition which Ita employment in childbirth at find excited, and which was supposed, by many of those who took part in It, to be of a 'religious' character.

It was characteristic of Koss Brady that he laughed, although somewhat bitterly, as tbe gaudy autocar dashed by. lie had received but tbe merest nod of recognition from Mtsa Danvers. "Ross, my boy," be sollllqulzed, "you must bare made a mistake In thinking you were Invited to Join this festive crowd." He took a small envelope from bis inner coat pocket and read portions of the note In a mumbling undertone, ndd lng caustic comments us lie proceeded: "My dear Boss.' M'm, donr Boss feels pretty cheap about 23 cents' worth nt the present moment! 'There will be a small party of us at Wlera from the IGlh to the 27th.' Well, I'm only two days lti the rcur not bad for a laboring man! 'It would be very pleasant If you could be there at the same time.' M'm, pleasant! I' wonder Just where the pleasure conies In! Well, here we are. Boss, brace up!" He furtively flicked the dust from hi Bhoes and ran lightly up the broad ter races to the hotel piazza. , He had hoped that Ellle would wait for hltn. She must have known that he was on bis way to call upon her. The torturing minutes seemed hour after he had sent up his card, and ho felt the scarlet blood mount to his forehead again and again as some laughing girl stole a second glance at hla handsome face and stalwart tlgure. When Eflie came down the stain gowned In white she seemed to the embarrassed young fellow the embodi ment of coolness and self possession. Her greeting was hardly courteous. In degree removed from cordiality, and she spoke with some asperity. "Why, Boss Brady, where are you staying? I expected you to register here!" He crimsoned under the reproof of her voice and manner; then the square shoulders w ere set back, and the heavy chin hardened. "You knew, EfDe," gravely, "that I could not afford the rates here. I am at n farmhouse a mile away. I can be with you whenever you wish, Utile," pleadingly. She seemed not to hear hlra. "And your call Just now. Boss," fret fully, "Is wholly without regard to eti quette. I only camo down to tell you (hat you can come again tomorrow, and be sure to nend up two cards, one for me and one for Mrs. Lyons, the chaperon of the party. He laughed shortly. "Eflle, the card I sent up la probably the last one I have. My vacation Is necessarily a brief one, and" "Oh, Boss," In an excited whisper, "here comes Miss Van Vance! Do go! I mustn't be seen talking to you like khls: She It from New York and aw ful ly"- Brady waited no longer. He bowed formally to BHie and turned sharply toward the door, meeting Miss Van Vance on the threshold. She looked squarely into his eyes as they passed with an expression that ho afterward recalled and wondered about. "She's a good deal older than Eflle and those other girls." he mused.. "I wonder" Then he shrugged his shoul ders Impatiently. "What difference does it u-ake anyhow? I'll write Eflie a note. I was a donkey not to think about cards. I don't wonder she was annoyed. She wants to lie correct about matters of etiquette, of course." Hut Brady's honest heart was sore Indeed on the following day when the messenger returned with no answer to the pleading little note he sent to EtTle. He put on a rough suit of flannel and started for a tramp, striding rapidly along tbe country road, his handsome face moody and forbidding. The sound of wheels roused him from his unpleasant reflections. "It Is country etiquette," said a clear voire, "for one who drives to ask one who walks to 'hive n lift.'" He turned quickly. It was Miss Van Vance, seated In a light Stanhope, driv ing n high stepping bay. She smiled down Into bis astonished face, reined and turned the animal with a quick movement of her supple wrist, glanc ing Invitingly nt the seat beside her. Brady had never before been chal lenged in Just such a way, and his blood rose. His usual dillidenco van ished; be stepped proinply Into the vehicle and seated himself, saying easily, "Is it etiquette for the one who walks to Introduce himself to the one who drives?" "It isn't necessary," coolly. "You ore Itoss Brady. You were brought up on a farm in northern Vermont You have studied all sorts of ologles nnd isms, and you are now taking tho ad lanced course In metallurgy at the Harvard summer school." "Who told yon?" rashly. "No one. I simply put two and two together. The sum Is seven! I wasn't sure, but your question proves It." "I am easily trapped," admitted Drndy. He felt a sudden sense of ease and confidence and of comradeship with this stalely looking girl, and almost before ho knew It he was pouring forth the whole story of his alms and mbltlon, his plans and hopes, even to his lovo for little Efflo Danvers and his chagrin at her cool reception. Mlsa Von Vance listened Interesting ly, smiling half ad!j "Air. Brady," she said slowly, "I am older than you, and I havo had, per-, bajis, Jj-Jder jrMjort unities for observ- lug human" nature. And I um"llkoT?a: inanthy Allen-I know women Just like a book because I've been one quite a spell. It is a woman's nature to want a man to beat down ail barriers, even thoso 6 ho herself has erected. Is tho hint sufllclent, Mr. Brady?" "I think so," quietly, "and I thank: you. Miss Van Vance." llo resolved to act upon tho sug. gestlon, yet it was two days before he summoned courago to go again to th hotel. "Miss Danvers la not here Just now." said the talkatlvo bellboy. "That whole party is out on the lake that is. they're gettin' ready to go. You'll find them, I guess, if you go down," pocket ing a dime with accustomed celerity. "They're goln' In a launch." For an Instant Brady was tempted to go away. Then he thought of Miss Van Vance and ran quickly down tli steps to tho boat lauding. Miss Van Vance, standing on tho float, greeted him delightedly. "I am so glad you happened along. Can you spare the time to go arouud Jhe lake with us?" Brady surprised himself with the ready ease of his acceptance. Miss Van Vance introduced hlra with an air of proprietorship. "My friend, Mr. Brady," adding as she presented him to Miss Danvers, "The fact that you are both Vcrmonters ought to be an immediate bond between you two." I'oor little Eflle colored and faltered.
