First Flight of Santos Dumont in His Flying Machine.
i EVERYBODY WILL SOON FLY BY AID OF THE AEROPLANE San'os-Dumont Dec'ares H s New Invention Is Destined to Become the Foor Man's Automobile and Will Displace Bicycle. Paris. Santos-Duraont, since the successful flight of his aeroplane, The Bird of Prey, talks enthusiastically of Or early approach of the day when Ml mankind will be navigating the air and when flying machines will be more common than automobiles. In deed, he thinks that the flying ma chine will eventually become the "poor ni.'n autoombile, be safer, faster ai..-; cheaper. In an Interview recent ly be Baid: "The machine I am ex perimenting with is large, having a surface of 80 square meters, but the practical aeroplane, which will be for the air what the democratical bicycle is for the earth, will be much smaller. "With ordinary flying machines It Is necessary to Increase the size in order to increase the power . With the aeroplane, on the contrary, speed .111 be increased in direct proportion t.' the diminution of the resistance Bii'face. My present aeroplane was in tentionally built large to overcome main obstacles as to principles. But with increased power, which means speed, the size can be reduced. At the same time increased Bpeed adds to the safety, as a powerful motor is more easily manipulated. We may, therefore, look forward to a prac tical aeroplane which can bo com fortably boused in every home. "From the standpoint of mainten ance, the cost both of petroleum and repairs, the aeroplane will be mach less expensive than the automobile car. There will be no expensive tires to burst and no bad roads to jolt them FORTUNE IN Bride Wears Dress of Venetian Fabric That Was Years in Making. Philadelphia. How would you like to wear, at your wedding, a gown which thoughtful hands had begun to make before you were out of your pinafores? How would you like to wear a wed ding dress which Is almost certainly unique not another like It in the United States, and probably not in the world ? That Is the kind of wedding dress Visa Ethel Anson Steel, daughter of Mis William Steel of "Creshelm," Mount Airy, wore when she was mar ried the other day in Grace church, Oorinantown, to Wheeler Hazard Peckham of New York and Paris. Years ago, when the bride was a little child, her mother decided Bhe should be married in a complete gown of Venetian lace of the "Raphael" pat terna, pattern so named because the great Italian artist loved to paint this lovely fabric on the beautiful women In his portraits. Nuns in Venice have almost a mo nopoly In Its making. Its fine, deli cate and intricate design muBt be College Girls Conclude to Go on a Strike. Lone Oyster In Their Soup Strains Endurance to Breaking Point Cleveland, O. The girls at Guildford House College for Women are on a strike because, as they claim, they do not get enough to eat. "The dormitories have not been pay ing expenses for several years," an nounced Mi.... Blssell, tho matron. "You eat too much, so we are going to curtail expenses in that depart ment" In pursuance of this policy, the girls say, the menu has been gradually dwindling. For a time the girls suf fered In silence. Then the storm came. The first course waa oyster soup. In which a solitary bivalve floated. The soup was dispatched with as much expedition as etiquette allowed and 60 pairs of eyes gazed expectantly toward the kitchen door. Nothing was forthcomini. "Lunch Is over," announced the matron. to pieces. There will be no collisions Next year people will be able to go to tho seashore on their aeroplanes. It will becomo the fad and the com mencement of a new Industry." "What of the danger?" "The only danger would be the risk of a broken rudder, and I cannot see that a rudder could break Itself. The aeroplane is immobility Itself. The swerving which made me descend on October 23 can be easily rectified by a second rudder to counteract any tendency in that direction. The prac tical difficulty, while the matter re mains in the experimental stage, would, of course, be how to control the supplementary rudder while the hands are otherwise engaged. My intention is to attach the yoke ropes to my neck and maintain the equilibrium by the instinctive movement of the head. Later this primitive arrangement will be replaced by an automatic mercurial apparatus. "When the automobile was first in troduced the man in the street treat ed those who had the temerity to op erate them as madmen, never antici pating the day when the fashionable thoroughfares of every big city would be crowded with nurses and newly born children. Men will drive aero planes as they now drive automobiles. There will be a short apprenticeship, but that can be done on terra flrma. In brief, the day is not far distant when the aeroplane, as a means of locomotion, will replace in the air the bicycle on the earth." TROUSSEAU woven in a damp cellar. It takes months for one nun to make a com paratively small piece, and a com plete gown costs a fortune. Queens of Europe possess only small pieces of this gossamar-like fabric, and it was only Mrs. Steel's foresight which enabled her daughter to possess this priceless dress. With this gown the bride wore a necklace of sapphires and diamonds, a gift of the bride groom. Old Cheese Still Eatable. Wlnsted, Conn. A quarter of a cen tury ago MrB. George Bushnell of Lakevllle made a cheeBe, and put it carefully away. The other day Mr. nushnell proposed cutting the cheese. Its flavor was found to be excellent. Although somewhat stronger than the cheese of the present day, It is perfect ly eatable. Mr. Bushnell says he thinks the cheese would have kept for ever, and that in the future it might have been found by some exploring geologist, who would havo pronounced it a relic of prehistoric ages. To save all this trouble and keep posterity from wondering whether it had found an old-fashioned grindstone or a pre historic car wheel, the cheese has been cut and eaten. Then the enraged maidens hurried for their purses and over to "The Coiners," wher they dined on roast beef and potatoes. The afternoon was spent in excited discussion of the "outrage." "It is a pity if we cannot have Bometblng to eat when we pay $8 a week for our board and room," ex claimed one miss. Has Lock of Washington's Hair. Norristown, Pa. The Washington Memorial chapel at Valley Forge has come into possession of a highly priied relic for exhibition In the patriots' ball. It Is a lock of hair from the head of GeorgA Washington. The gift Is from Mrs. Pecnln of Philadelphia, to whom it was presented 84 years ago by James Hamilton, then 84 years old, who had received It from his father, Alexander Hamilton, an aid de-camp to Oen. Washington, to whom it had been given by the general as a token of esteem. RISKS LIFE FOR HIS SWEETHEART QUICK-WITTED ACT OF A TEXAS COWBOY. GIRL BITTEN BY A SNAKE Young Man Immediately Suck Poison from Wound and Wins Haughty Father's Consent to Their Marriage. Houston, Tex. A dozen or more cowboys in the employ of old "Blun derbuss" Baron on the famous Los Floritas ranch, in southwestern Texas, witnessed a few days since a remark able scene and the display of des perate devotion on the part of a com rade that has few parallels either in fact or fiction. Miss Sallle Baron was galloping across the plains in company with her father and a bunch of cowboys when she accidentally saw a pretty flower blooming near a large cactus. This famous belle of the Rio Grande Is an accomplished and spirited rider, capable of performing many feats on horseback that astound even the most daring broncho buBter. Without slack ening the speed of her fine racer she swung her lithe body towards the ground In order to seize the fragrant bloom that had attracted her at tention. Her hand had no sooner touched the flower than there was a warning rat tle so familiar to the ears of Texans, and the next instant the fangs of a monster rattlesnake were driven into the white arm of the venturesome girl. Old man Baron saw the glitter of the mad serpent's eyes and the flash of the forked tongue and the murder ous fangs sinking Into the arm of his adored daughter. She is his only child, and one for whom he has hoard fd a million. He loves her better than his own life. Realizing that death usually follows the bite of such a monster, the terrified father threw up his arms with a moan of despair. Jack Garland, a quick-witted valor ous ex-ranger, happened to be close enough to seize the frightened young woman's arm as she threw it up, and he grasped it above the wound, en circling it with his thumbs and fore fingers with sinews of steel that pre vented the poison from reaching be yond his grip. As other comrades sprang to his as sistance Jack pressed his lips to the wound and began to suck the deadly venom from the white arm with all the strength he possessed. Old man Baron had fallen from his saddle in helpless terror. While some of the boys were dispatching the blg rattler others were helping the dis tressed father to reach the side of his daughter. He Is an old Texan, and, FINDS TROUSERS, NOT LINGERIE, IN SUITCASE Mischievous Youths Play Joke on Bride's Sister, Just Back From Wedding. Norristown, Pa.

Thereby hangs an interesting story, which was brought out at a county commissioners' meeting. A suit case, containing wedding cake, woman's finery, etc., had been turned over to the commissioners by William Webster, watchman on the bridge between here and Bridgeport. He explained that it had been depos ited In his watch box while he was absent and he couldn't conceive why. In the suit case, when the commis sioners opened It, however, was e let ter addressed to Miss Lillian Bergey, Bridgeport, Pa., and, complying with official instructions, the commission ers' clerk called up Bridgeport by phone and finally got Miss Bergey at the wire. He explained the suit case and the letter, whereupon the sweet voice at the other end of the wire aid: comprehending the situation at a glance, his courage began to rise. He knew that the poison of a snake could be sucked from the wound, and he also was well Informed as to the risk and danger the young man was Incurring. "You arc a brave boy," he exclaimed, " a brave boy." "And what will not a brave boy do for the girl he loves?" said one of the cowboys. It Boon became evident that the young woman's life had been saved, and then all eyes were turned upon Jack. It was no secret on the ranch that the handsome young cowboy and the pretty girl whose life lie had saved The Rattler Drove His Hangs Into Her Arm. had long been in love with one an other. Nothing had stood in the way of the union of the happy hearts fcut the bitter hostility and determined opposition of the haughty father of; Sallie Baron. The trembling old father, standing by his daughter's horse, breathing hard, with his head against her bosom, realized that the time had come for capitulation. Making a des perate effort to master his feelings, he raised hia eyes, swimming In tears, and taking his daughter's hand, he placed it within the clasp of the he roic youth who had saved her Ufa at the risk of losing his own. "Here, my brave boy, not one man in a million would have deared to do what you have done. My daughter is a better judge of young men than I am." "I had Just returned from Reading, where I attended the wedding of my sister. I set down my grip while wait ing for a trolley car. Upon my arrival home I opened the grip to share the wedding cake with my relatives, when, lo! I found trousers and things. "I hastened back to the station and found a young man tearing his hair out by the roots searching for the very grip I had. I had become so sick of it I turned it over to him, when he proved hlB property, but I was unable to find mine. I notified the railroad authorities and they have had detec tives on the case, I guess." It has transpired, upon further In vestigation, that mischievous boys, with far-seeing eyes and a scent for the grotesque, had substituted the male for the female belongings at the Btation, moving the latter to the watchman's box. They are probably laughing yet Girl Spends Night In Ice Box. New York.
