Orville Wright, who made a success- d ful trip in the air on the "Wright Fly- A er" at Kittyhawk, N. C., are intelligent I mechanics of Dayton, who for the last I four years have experimented with 1 varied success with a flying machine of their own invention. They are the Brethren church and are members of Ia well lknown family. A dispatch to Bishop Wright says four successfull flights were made yesterday against a twenty-one mile wind. The start was made from a level, with engine power alone, and the average speed through the air was thirty-one miles. The longest time in the air was fifty-seven se seconds. The "Wright Flyer" has no fit gas bar or balloon attachments of any Cl kind, but is supported by a pair of aero-curves, or wings, having an area cc of 510 square feet. It measures a lit- cI tie more than forty feet from tip to S tip, and the extreme fore and aft di- a mension is about twenty feet. The h weight of the machine is driven by a h pair of screw propellers placed just be- a hind the wings. The power is sup a plied by a gasoline motor, designed and built by the Messrs. Wright. It is of the four-cycle type and has four cyl- I I indors. The pistons are four inches in diameter and have four-inch strokes. r- At the speed of 1,100 revolutions a Lt minute the engine develops sixteen t break horse power with a consump ,h tion of a little less than ten pounds of ge as an hour. The weight of the en e gine, including car, buretter and fly d iwheel, is 152 pounds. The wings, al of though apparently very light, have to been tested to more than six times the ul regular load, and it is asserted that of a the entire structure that it is a prac as tical machine capable of withstanding rer the shock on repeated landings and gh I not a mere toy which must be entirely 'he rebuilt after the first flight.
