AEROPLANE DESIGNED TO CARRY SIX PASSENGERS
T "■" . .1 ■ —===== ^ LIEUT, j. W. Seddon of the British navy has just designed and built an enormous aeroplane which is intend ed to carry six passengers. Preliminary tests are being made with it near Wolverhampton, England. This "tandem biplane,” as it Is called, differs entirely from any other flying machine now in use. The contri vance weighs about a ton, steel tubes take the place of wires, the planes cover an area of 1,000 feet and it will be propelled by two eighty-horse-power engines which are placed between the two sets of planes. HORSE ON PENSION — n Jerry, Equine Detective, Given Al lowance for Services. Corporation, Recognizing Eighteen Years of Faithfulness, Will Make Life Easy Rest of Animal's Days. Spokane, Wash. — Jerry, faithful servant and one-time detective, has been pensioned by a great express company after serving that corpora tion for 18 years. Jerry is not an ordinary being. Un like many who have fitted into the scheme of a great business, Jerry never would work on Sunday, how ever pressing might have been the occasion. Jerry is bay gelding 15% hands high and weighs 1,350 pounds. He was foaled in 1886. Jerry’s pedigree is not worth mentioning. He was a work horse and served 18 years with out a day oil or 'a vacation. Besides fhithfully pulling the wagon, Jerry has guarded the com pany’s treasures. Several years ago there apparently was a hold-up in the yard in the rear of the office. Jerry'B driver proved to be the hold-up. Rob bing himself, he 'pretended to be the victim of bandits. To carry out his deception the driver had fired one shot into the wall and was about to fire again. Just then Jerry got an idea. He suddenly backed the wagon, the wheel hit the revolver, turned it and the bullet buried itself in the driver’s leg. The seeming mystery surrounding the robbery was solved soon afterward. Eighteen years ago, when the popu lation of Spokane was less than 15,000 Jerry and his team mate were bought by the company, the price paid being $600. They made the rounds together until 1899, when the mate died. Jerry was put between the shafts of a single wagon and he made the rounds alone, simply because he would not work double. He never forgot his team mate. Jerry became the pet of the office force, the favorite of merchants and of the barn men through his intelli gence and gentleness. He always had a box stall. Some time ago one of the horses in the barn became ill. Jerry was put in a single stall that the ailing animal might have the box. ; Now this was not to Jerry’s liking. He had been wronged and he knew it. He set his slant heels to work, making room rapidly. He was ready for the big posts when the barn men led him to his stall. Jerry was punctual. When the sev en o’clock whistle blew, he left his comfortable stall and calmly walked upstairs to his wagon, backed between the thills and waited to be harnessed. He was willing to work, but he was as willing to quit Promptly at six o’clock in the evening Jerry Btarted for the barn. No hitching weight would deter him, unless it had been fastened to the pavement. Jerry knew his way around town, too, and never missed a stop. He had watched the city grow to 120,000 popu lation. He saw 15-story structures take the place of squatty brick build ings, but in the bustle of develop ment he kept up with the times. Having earned his rest, Jerry will be sent into a pasture in the Spokane valley, about five miles from the scene of his labor. He will run knee-deep in clover and alfalfa with the fragrant odors from surrounding orchards and the perfumes of wild flowers to whet his appetite and woo him to sleep when the sun has slipped behind the western hills. NEW YORK MAN NEVER KISSED Incidental to Engagement Handsome Easterner Makes Blushing Admis sion—Likes Girls. New York.—Can a man live 40 years in New York, with *1 its pretty girls, without kissing or being kissed? Here is one man who says he can. He points to his own case as an in stance, and the other day he told why. Olin W. Hill, secretary of the Car negie Safe Deposit company, is the man. He is over forty, handsome, well groomed, and bears all the outward marks of a man-about-town. But Mr. Hill has at last fallen a victim to Cupid’s darts, and he blush ingly admitted his engagement to Miss Martha Brown, daughter of Mrs. Slater Brown of Seattle. “The young woman is now in New York purchasing her trousseau,” Mr. Hill said, “and she expects her mother here shortly. “Until now I have never been in love with any woman, have never kissed a woman, or even thought of proposing. I had intended to keep my engagement secret until Miss Brown s mother arrived, and then let her make the announcement, but the false re ports that I was to marry a stenog rapher named Miss Brown in the em ploy of the Carnegie Trust company had to be corrected.” Mr. Hill admitted that he liked the girls well enough, but said that he be lieved that no man had a right to kiss one until after marriage.

Cheap Grades of Shoes Made From Skins Not Properly Prepared Oft en Cause Trouble to Their Wearers. London.—Beware of cheap boots. In their leather, if tanned by a re cently utilized scientific process, there may lurk a grave danger to health. Blood poisoning is the danger to be feared, and according to an expert’s opinion blood poisoning in a form ex tremely difficult to cure. In the north of England a case of blood poisoning from this cause has just been reported, and the victim, an inspector of the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, was rendered very seriously ilL While attending a police court wear ing a pair of boots of the kind warned against, he collapsed, and his skin turned from its natural color to blue and then to black. He was taken to a hospital, and oxygen had to be administered to re vive him and it was not until a week afterwards that he was well enough to be sent home. Tanning leather by means of chro mic acid is the source of the trouble. An analylst on the staff of the Leathersellers’ company’s Technical college described the dangers of this form of tanning. “The process was invented by Prof. Schultz in 1887, and it is known as chrome tanning. At that time they could not make it a practical success, and It remained in the experimental stage for many years. “An American firm then took it up and it is now the pioneer of the pro cess. The poisoning is due to chro mic acid, and occurs when the tanning is not carefully done. “The skin first goes into a bath of chromic acid, and is then changed from the acid to a base-bath, in which the acid is neutralized by reduction with hyposulphite. If the chrbmic acid is thoroughly neutralized the leather is then perfectly safe and harmless. “But If any free cnromlc acid it left in the leather, blood poisoning may result, and in the manufacture of the cheaper grades of leather there Is a danger that the process may not be completely carried out. “In a factory a man who works at the chroihic acid bath Is generally put to work at the reducing bath too, so that any chromic acid in his hands may be neutralized. If it is not he gets ‘chrome sores,’ which are very dangerous and are difficult to cure. Lanoline is largely used and recom mended now. “Chrome tanning is generally used for upper leather and not often for soles, because when wetted It gets very slippery. “A large number of tanners are now giving up the old process for the chrome for light leather, but it is not yet very popular with heavy manufac turers. “I have heard of continual com plaints that it ‘draws’ the feet badly. “Chrome tanning is the latest word In tanning in England," the manager of a well known Strand firm of sad dlers said. “We only use It for one particular strap on saddles which go to South America, and then it is so padded that it touches neither horse nor rider. “The process makes leather as near ly as possible waterproof. It is still in its infancy. “If chrome tanning is properly done there ought to be no danger, but if done hastily by unqualified people, chromic acid and other chemicals are left In the leather and are dissolved out in the perspiration, so that ‘chrome sores’ and other mischief might be caused." “Chromates in solution," said the medical officer of health for a large district, “have a poisonous action and also act corrosively on the skin. Chro mic acid is a strongly acid liquid and In some cases the workmen preparing it or using it in various processes suf fer Bevere ulcers.” Lord’s Prayer on Coin. New York.—A curious specimen of the fine work of a famous old Ameri can engraver, A. W. Overbaugh, has come to light in a little Staten Island town. The relic is an ancient gold dollar, in the center of which, in a. cir cle one-sixth of an inch in diameter, Overbaugh engraved the Lord’s pray er. The inscription cannot be seen with the naked eye, but is distinct with the aid of glasses. The engraving was done on a wager. DEBUT OF ELEVEN DUCKLINGS. I - At-—--■ Hot Water Hatches Them In New Jer sey Campers' Improved Refrig erator-Doing Well. Centerville, N. J.—Members of the Eureka Camping club, of Jersey City, who are camping along the Little Nos copeck creek, north of this town, were surprised when they saw eleven young ducklings swimming about In the pond formed by a turn in the stream. The presence of the fowl puzzled the camp ers, as no mother duck waB In sight and there Is not a farmhouse within a mile of the place. The mystery of the ducklings’ ap pearance was explained, however, when Barton Youngscourt returned to camp. He had charge of the commis sary of the colony up to the time busi ness compelled him to leave for his borne, several weeks ago. Youngscourt, before his departure, had purchased In Centerville what were represented U> be a dozen ducks’ eggs. He placed them In a basket and set them In the cool edge of the stnfem. He neglected to tell his companions of this wnen ne was suddenly called to Jersey City. Soon after Youngscourt left camp the Centerville Power company plant, just above the colony was put In op eration. The exhaust W the power house was turned into the stream and the hot water raised the temperature of the creek. The eggs were In the warmest part of the current, and that resulted in the hatching of the eleven ducklings that were seen for the first time today. Youngscourt found the basket, which contained twelve empty shells. There also was the body of a chick. The twelfth egg had been that of a hen, and the chick hatched out of It was drowned before it could get, to land. Copyright Town Nemo. Wllkesbarre.

A few days ago, In a somewhat squalid neighborhood, a house caught fire. The flames shot quickly through the litter on the floor and the untidy array of clothing on the walls. A wom an' talking with a neighbor ran scream ing to the house and without an in stant's hesitation sprang through the Bmoklng doorway Into what already seemed an inferno. A moment later she staggered out, her hands and face blackened and blistered and her clothing on fire. In her arms she bore her baby, safe from barm. The afternoon papers came out with the story, printed under headlines ex tolling this mother’s heroism. Men read it on street cars, and as their eyes gleamed with the stirring of the spirit which leaps to greet noble ddeds they said: “That woman dared to do what most men would be afraid to do." But the mothers who read it at home did not think that way. Perhaps the danger to the baby, the wrecking of the home and the burns the woman suffered brought moisture to their eyes, but to them the act was not one of heroism—it was simply what any natural mother, no matter how timid, would do under the same circum stances.—Cleveland Leader. $100 Reward, $100.
