INVENTION ITS OWN REWARD True Mission of the Inventor Is to In vent for the Good c< the World— Before Many Years Airships Will Be in Common Use Like Bicycles and Carriages. There are uo patents on 1113' air ship, says M. Santos-Dumont in the New York-World, because it is not necessary that commercialism should enter into Its development. To a certain extent the motives which impel me toward mors# complete solution of the problem of aerial navigation are philanthropic. The more Imitations the better, if they benefit humanity. When an imitator improves upon an original which has been created for the good of the world, the originator is ful filling his mission. He should rejoice that it has been his privilege so to help his fellow beings. If he is in need of financial reward for his labors, It is right that he should have it to a com fortable extent. It does not seem quite human or just that men should study out inventions for gain alone. That statement in itself, though, may be an injustice. A successful Inventor has always with him the supreme knowledge that he has conquered something. How it comes about matters little. One or many of nature’s forces respond to the efforts of his hands and brains. That response may yield him mountains of gold, it may set him on a pinnacle to dwell forever in the eyes of the world, yet he will never know a purer happi ness than that which came with the first clear conviction that he lias not only accomplished his aim, but has won out in the race of progress as well. The more humanity gains from his toil and patience, the greater his Joy. Therein lies the satisfaction of in vention. The serious purposed Inven tor is a ihan of whom it can be said: “Dame Nature clasps hands with uim in token of good fellowship.” In his hours of patient striving she whispers solutions of his dearest problems; all that she has is his; she gives her coun sel freely, and stands ready to deliver into his leash and harness all her forces. Aerial navigation is an accomplished fact. Its universal adoption will do much to lessen the discomforts of travel. Before many years have passed not only airships, but flying machines will be in general use. It is my belief that the day is not far distant when a flying machine will be uo more a lux ury than a bicycle or a carriage. Then we shall have no more suffocating, overcrowded railway cars, but swift journey lugs through the air by means of machines which respond readily to intelligent guidance. It would seem from the various ways my nan e is printed that there is no right way of writing it. In France I am "Santos;” in England “Santos- Dumont;" here they have made it plain “Dumont.” France alone prints it cor rectly. My name is Santos, and I should prefer to be' so called. Novels of Babylonian life are not rare, but hitherto no writer of fiction has ven tured beyond the shallow depths of the classical legends. which formerly were taught as “Assyrian history.” This argues a lack of enterprise or originality In the novelists, as the fund of material that has been gathered since Botta struck the first pick Into the ruins of Sargon's palace in 1842 is ample and var ied enough for either history or romance. A new writer. Josiah M. Ward. Is to strike out into deeper water, and take his readers back into the limes of Neb uchadnezzar and the last days of Nine veh. The title of his book. “Come with M*- into Babylon.” is a pleasant promise which challenges attention. One expects something more than a glimpse Into the lives of the Babylonians, whose name has come to be a synonym of luxury and wantonness. Those were heroic days re ally. when the greatest nations of that remote antiquity, the Babylonians. Medes, Lydians and Egyptians, met over the carcass of Assyria and engaged in that fierce struggle for the mastery of the world.—Leslie's Magazine for May. “Have? you begun work on your gar den yet?” "Yes; I have commenced chasing my neighbor's chickens.” "I Want Everybody to Know How Completely It Cures Indigestion." This shows the unselfish disposition of Mr. Hodge, of Orchard Cottage, Ippleden, New ton, who, having been cured by Vogeler’s Compound, wishes every other sufferer to know of the benefit he has received from this marvellous remedy. He tells his story as follows: “ Gentlemen—l find Vogeler's Compound a remedy above all others; last year I was in a thorough bad state of health, and could hardly drag one leg alter the other. I had tried dozens ol remedies advertised to cure indigestion and all its attendant evils, but was rapidly going from bad to worse when I had the good fortune to be recommended to take Vogeler’s Com pound. I did so, and am thankful to say it made a new man of me. I should line other people to know its virtues, and how completely it knocks under the worst forms of indigestion and dispepsia.

CHICAGO WHALES ASHORE ON MAINE COAST Big Fellows Trapped in Narrow Cove at Eastport. Two finback whales, each about for ty-five feet long, which have been dis porting themselves in Passamaquoddy bay for a month, are now made fast, dead from bullets and harpoons, to the railroad bridge, and are being view by excursionists attracted by the novelty they present from all over eastern Maine. The big fish made their way up the narrow Cobscook river recently and in seeking to retdrn to the bay lost their way and passed under the toll bridge connecting the inland city of Eastport, Me., with the mainland at Perth, four miles out. They were trapped in a small cove, shut in on the east by the toll bridge and on the west by the wooden bridges of the Washington county railroad. All Thursday the two whales made the circuit of the covq, where the water is shallow, and more than 1.000 persons watched them as they tried to get out of the narrow channel. The cove comes up to the shores of the Passamaquoddy Indian village of pleasant point, five miles from East port, and at least 100 Indian hunters followed the mammoth fish in canoes for thirty-six hours before they finally shot them. Fifty of the best rifle shots of Eastport had collected along the banks with all kinds of rifles and the crack shots of company I, 2d regi ment, were on the scene for several hours trying to wound the whales. One of the Indian canoes was upset by one of the whales and three In dians had a narrow escape from drowning in the Icy waters. The backs of the whales were perforated by countless bullets, and it was only af ter a long fight that the game fellows surrendered and were harpooned by the Indians. The carcasses will be given to the Indians as soon as the sightseeing is over, says a New York World special, and the bones and oil will be sold by the red men. These are the only whales seen on this part of the coast for many years. HENRY IV. IN NINETEENTH CENTURY Hotly of English Monarch Exhumed at Canterbury. In 1832 a discussion arose as to whether Henry IV. was really buried in Canterbury cathedral, according to tradition. The then Dean of Canter bury, the Hon. and Very Rev. Richard Bagot (afterward Bishop of Oxford), invited my husband to be present at the opening of the royal tomb. This was done in the middle of night in the presence of a few of the cathedral au thorities and specially invited spec tators. The body of the king was found wrapped in lead and leather. For a few moments after this covering was removed the face of the king was re vealed in a state of perfect preserva tion, as though still indued with life. As the spectators looked, all crumbled away into dust, and my husband de clared that it was a most weird and impressive scene, which, indeed, with the flickering torches and the solemn surroundings of the ancient cathedral, it must have been. A portion of the king’s beard, which was of reddish color, was cut off before the tomb was closed and my husband was given a piece of it by his uncle. He gave this piece to the Duke of Northumberland of that day, feel ing that the hair of the monarch whom the Percys placed on the throne and then helped to overthrow would find an appropriate place among the historical relics of the family. The hair is now preserved at Alnwick.— “Links with the Past,” by Mrs. Ba got. Two Good Examples of Tact. Henry Loomis Nelson, in his ait*cle in the May Century, on Washington society, tells these anecdotes of tne capital as representative of the light and shade of official life: “Madame,” said an old diplomat at his own table, “I have some bonbons here from Parjs. They have medal lions of the potentates of the worid, and I have had your ruler’s face stamped on one of them. Is it not a good likeness?” And he handed a chocolate to the woman on his right, who, for reasons of her husband’s, did not like the new President. “We have no rulers in this coun try,” said the gracious guest, throw ing the chocolate under the table. The host’s attention had been attract ed elsewhere, and he did not see the insult, but he was aware of something by the silence which followed. How ever, before he could know what had happened, a young woman’s voice said to the butler: “Won't you find that bonbon which Mrs. (J dropped? I want to look at It.” One day a delighted and awkward new statesman was taking tea at the house of a clever woman, and was suddenly plunged into terror, agony and shame by the annihilation of the delicate and costly Sevres cup from which he had been drinking, but be fore his palate was dry or his tongue responsive to his saved mind, the hostess broke its mate, saying to the servant as she did so: “Never put these cups on the table again, Smltn; they’re too brittle for use."

Senator Money of Mississippi has with drawn his suits against the Washington street car conductor and city fireman for alleged assault. The joke writers will now claim that It is because there was no show for money In them. Health will come with all its blessings to those who know the way, and it is mainly a ques tion of right-living, witli all the term implies, but the efforts which strengthen the system, the (fames which refresh and the foods which nourish are important, each in away, while it is also advantageous to have knowledge of the best methods of promoting freedom from unsani tary conditions. To assist nature, when nature needs assistance, it is all important that the medicinal agents used should bo of the best quality and of known value, and the one remedy which acts most beneficially and pleasantly, as a laxative, is—Syrnpof Figs—manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co. With a proper understanding: of the fact that many physical ills are of a transient char acter and yield promptly to the gentle action of Syrup of Figs, gladness and comfort come to the heart, and if one would remove the torpor and strain and congestion attendant upon a con stipated condition of the system, take Syrup of Figs and enjoy freedom from the aches and pains, the colds and headaches and the depression due to inactivity of the bowels.
