Wright Makes Successful Flight in
His Air Ship.
Washington, D. C, Sept. 9. Or-
ville Wright, in his new aeroplane,
shattered all the world's records for
heavier-than-air machines this morn
ing, when he sailed over the parade
ground at Fort Myer for 57 minutes
and 31 seconds. This flight, which
surpasses that of the French aviator
Delagrange, who made a record of 31
minutes and a fraction over the field
of Issy and which tops that of the
Wrights themselves by a little more
than 19 minutes, was made without
a hitch, without a blunder upon the
part of the operator.
The Influence of a Word.
How enormously important are
these first conversations of child
hood. I felt it this morning with a
sort of religious terror. Innocence
and childhood are sacred. The
sower who casts in the seed, the
father or mother casting in the fruit
ful word, are accomplishing a ponti
fical act and ought to perform it with
a religious awe, with prayer and
gravity, for they are laboring at the
kingdom of God. All seed-sowing
is a mysterious thing, whether tho
seed fall into the earth or into souls.
Man is a husbandman; his whole
work rightly understood,- is to de
velop life, to sow it everywhere.
Such. Is the . mission of humanity;
and of this divine mission the great
instrument is speech. We forget too
often that language is both a seed
sowing and a revelation. The influ
ence . of a word in season is it
not inclaculable? What a mystery in
speech! But we are blind to it, be
cause we are carnal and earthly. We
see the stones and the trees by the
road, the furniture of our houses
all that is palpable and material. We
have no eyes for the invisible pha
lanxes of ideas which people the air
and hover incessantly around each
one of us. Henri Fredreic Amiel.

One may flatten himself out against

unless In your earnest, steadfast
looking you can detect an ear or a
shoulder in relief against the sky,
you might as well abandon search.
Another may lie along a bough flat
tened at full length; but here the
tell-tale ears are more easily sil
houetted. Still another may crouch
drawn up In a fork; and here the
thing to look for is the fluffy tip of
that little signal flag which always
works and waves and jerks and sig

He will catch your eye, even as you

for headlong flight, leaping from
tree to tree, till he vanishes over the
