The eagle, if launching himself from certs held Wednesday and Thursday w ere
level ground, is obliged to take quite a
run first; then, flapping his wings with
a violent muscular effort which he couh'
not keep up for long, he gains a sufH
cient altitude to render it possible for
him to strike along the plane of an air
current which holds him up.
Floating with librating pinions from
one air current to another, he is lifted,
with an occasional broad sweep of his
powerful wings, to the upper aerial re
gions, where he simply floats, opposing
to each movement of the suspended
ether the gentle force necessary to main
tain him in his stationary position.
These principles which the eagle a- are sam
pnes for purposes of flight are perfectly
understood in the theory of mechanics.
It is only necessary to adapt them with
suitable apparatus in order to give to

A PRACTICABLE MACHINE.
This is precisely what Professor Lang
ley has been experimenting with. What
he is attempting is to produce a machine
adapted to flotation upon the air cur
rents like a kite. You can And a very
simple illustration of the principle he is
working on in the trick uone with play
ing cards by the prestidigitator Herr
mann, who throws them from the stage
into the highest gallery of the biggest
theater in the United States, distributing
them one after another among the
"gods" of that select circle. How does
he do it?
Simply by skillfully utilizing the air
currents. The scrap of pastboard is
heavier than the atmosphere, but, ju
diciously projected, it mounts to a
great height and distance with very lit
tle force. It would stay up, too, even if
thrown outdoors, supposing that it pos
sessed the intelligence necessary to ac
commodate its surface to the winds.
What can be done in this way may be
accomplished on a larger scale. Lest
this proposition be disputed it will be
sufficient to refer to a flying machine
patented in Australia. It weighs alto
gether nineteen pounds, and its back
bone is a long copper cylinder two inches
in diameter, tilled with compressed air.
The compressed air supplies power for a
small engine weighing ten pounds, at
the rear end of the cylinder, which
works a fan propeller.
To tbe backbone on either side is at
tached a great wing of light material,
so that the whole apparatus resembles a
big butterfly with two fans for a tail.
This contrivance has been made to fly
horizontally SCO feet Of course it is
only a beginning, but all the same here
is the nearest approach to the practicable
all information. Call on him.
