Ireland May Yet be a Nation.
CHICAGO, Jan. 12—Dr. Douglass
Hyde, president of the Gaelic league,
and the youngest of the present lead
ers of the Irish nationalist movement,
pleaded his cause last night before
one of the most enthusiastic audiences
that ever assembled in the Chicago
auditorium. Dr. Hyde told of the
Gaelic league and the fight it is wag
ing to lead the people back to the lang
uage of their fore-fathers.
"The life or death fight of the league
has begun," he said. "If it survives,
Ireland may again become a nation.
If it fails the last nationalist move
may fail."

Built in Record Time.
LONDON, Jan. 12.—Lewis Nivon,
who sailed for New York Wednesday,
stated in London that he had complet
ed a torpedo fleet in the navy yards
at Sebastopol. There are ten boats
in all, which have just been turned
over to the government in complete
working order. They are all of Ameri
can design, fitted with American ma
chinery ,the power being obtained
from gas engines of American con
struction.
Every record in building was broken
as for instance, the first boat was
turned over to the government fixe
weeks and five days from laying her
keel, which means that she was com
pleted in about one-sixth of the pre
vious time for any similar work. The
contract stipulated that they should be
so constructed as to be easily trans
ported by rail. The new boats are
now all in the Black sea.

A girl in Indiana with some business

she was 12 years old. That was thirty
years ago. Today she is 42 years old

HOW BIRDS SOAR.
The Kite a Master of the Art mt
Soaring-.
"In the summer of 1872 I was visit
ing on the Warm Springs reservutiou
in eastern Oregon." says a writer.
"Tlie residences el tbc government em
ployees were in a deep valley between
table lands through winch the water
courses had rut deep canyons. 1 cliin'o
fcj up ou one of these tables, the edge
If which was in most places perpen
dicular for ten, twenty and more feet,
Ukd as I stood there iu n strong breeze
blowing against the face of the slope
■ small hawk came gliding along eight
or ten feet above the edge and follow
ing the course of the edge, and he kept
ou until he was little more than u rod
away from me. He seemed to be mak
ing no effort except a little balancing
and turning in order to steer himself.
The explanation seemed to me very
simple. Just there at the edge there
was a strong, sharply ascending cur
rent which enabled him to use wind
and gravity against each other.
"In the autumn of that year I went
to Fuchau, China, and there I found
the city frequented by a species of
large bird which we call a kite. It
eeems to be half hawk, half buzzard,
in Its build and habits. Its flight is
heavy and awkward, its wings being
too big for its pectoral muscles, and
their tips are not pointed like a hawk's,
but broad and square across. But it
Is a master of the art of soaring.
There are in Fuchau two hills which
lie square across the path of the after
noon sea breeze, nere toward the
close of a breezy autumn afternoon a
dozen or a score of these kites will
resort and have a genuine coasting
game.
"These hillsides are quite steep, and
of course there results a strong, sharp
upward current at the top. The kites
come to the top and, starting from the
eddy in the lee of the top, glide out
into the uprushing current, wings bal
ancing up and down and head and tail
turning and twisting till they are in
the heart of the upward current, and
then they turn broadside to it and are
borne upward and backward seventy
five or a hundred feet. Then they de
scend again into the eddy and again
steer themselves out into the uprushing
current. Throughout it all there is very
little flapping of the wings."—Chicago
News.
ERRORS IN ILLUSTRATION.
How Kaally Tlioy Are Made In Hurry
of I* re partition.
"Perfection or detail," said the car
toonist, "is very rare in the making of
pictures, whether they be painted on
canvas by the great masters or drawn
In line by men who illustrate the daily
newspapers. It is the general effect
that tells. There are few newspaper
pictures—and I don't except my own
in which you can't pick some flaw from
the standpoint of realism.
"In the hurried effort of the news
paper artist, who counts the minutes
by the clock, there may be some excuse
for this, but when we see a man carv
ing a turkey left handed on the cover
of a magazine we must agree that the
artist has either been careless or else
has employed a left handed model to
pose for him, and the latter solution is
scarcely probable.
"A fisherman landing a trout on a
light roil witli never a linger on the
reel is quite a common mistake among
magazine illustrations, and in the mat
ter of costumes of various periods tlie
illustrators are woefully lacking In In
formation.
"To illustrate how apt we are to
make mistakes," continued the cartoon
ist, "several years ago I drew a figure
representing Cuba, emaciated, starv
ing, a tiling of skin and bones. The
figure was half naked, and I tried to
bring out all the horrible details—the
shrunken limbs, the gaunt face, the
ribs protruding through the skin and,
above all, the hollow cavity where the
stomach should have been. A friend
of mine, a doctor, took me to task
about it. 'Persons who are starving to
death,' he said, 'may be abnormally
emaciated in every other part of the
body except the stomach. The abdo
men in the advanced stages Is expand
ed, giving the victim a grotesque ap
pearance.' To substantiate this state
ment he showed me some photographs
taken in India during a famine, and I
was forced to admit that he was right."
Record.
'Women In Venice.
In Venice, says the Ladies' Realm,
the women of the lower classes accept
tributes to their beauty from perfect
strangers as a matter of course. It Is
considered not only proper, but polite,
to compliment a passing maiden on the
charm of her beautiful eyes or com
plexion. If one treads on the skirt of
a pretty woman, one has only to say,
"Pardon, beautiful girl," to receive the
most dazzling smile and bow in return
for the awkwardness. At cafes fre
quented by the people it is the custom
for waiters to say when placing a
chair for one of the women, "Take this
seat, beautiful blond," or, "Sit here,
lovely brunette," as the case may be.
A Woman Soldier.
Women disguised as men have often
served as soldiers. The following In
scription is on a tombstone in the Eng
lish town of Brighton: "In memory of
Phoebe Hassel; born 1713. died 1821.
aged 108 years. She served for many
years as a private soldier In many
parts of Europe, and at the battle of
Fontenoy. fighting bravely, she re
ceived a bayonet wound in the left
arm."
Although not yet perfected, the Ma-
Jorama telephone bids fair vastly to
extend the field of usefulness of the
long distance telephone by rendering
audible vibrations too faint to actuate
the disk of the ordinary receiver or
even the microphone instruments.
