First Women To 'Drive Aeroplane Cross Country In New World CONCESSIONS TO FOREIGN COKPO , RATION USED TO AROUSE CUBAN PEOPLE. Charge That President Was Benefi ciary Goverment Started Alarm Politics Injected By Leaders. A I1B7 REVOLUTIOII 'st ip 11 iwnn ii --v ww, nil II nu jrfr? , V :l 5i 1 7.s?i j - - ; m5, . - Havana, July 25, Not since the re-establishment of the Cuban repub lic have there existed such peculiar political conditions as have prevailed for the past few weeks conditions fraught with great unrest and much peril to the stability of the republic, and yet apparently not; assignable to any specific source other than the nervous tendency of the Cuban peo ple to yield to alarm on insufficient provocation. This tendency has been stimulated in the present Instance by the action of the government in making osten tatious military preparations for de fense and indulging In expressions of its determination to crush merciless ly any attempt at revolution at a time when it was apparent that from one end ot the island to the other there v up not visible the faintest sympton '! ;i':y tendency to disorder. Tin- ivinH 'jf this policy on the ii.nt ni IV KjJi i't Gomez and his ad viwn. has h.'id an unhappy effect. Miv.-i'. confidence in the govern ment has been shaken and the admin--Mat.ion has alienated many of its r-i.s ;ff ..'t. is. . i ;.. in m ediate provocation of this iite of affairs was the initiation ot -.t'.i.u -hj on ih.. Administration by the tii.n xiir'iM !- t.i ijia, founded for this ,..tas puipose by Congressman Ar mand Andre, wherein it was charged that the president and his entourage had accumulated vast sums by distri buting enormously valuable conces sions among foreign corporations and political friends of the administra tion. The attacks coutiimed so persis tently that the president Issued , a public statement giving what, purpor ted to be an Inventory of his estate, which appeared to be of but moderate dimensions. Eventually the government assum ed an altitude of defiance. The city was thrown into semi-panic by the 'Midden call to arms of the garrison or Castle La Fueraa and the surround ing of the nalaee soon after mid night by rural guards, artillery and infantry. According to the palace authorities the movement was merely to di'tiriuine how rapidly' the troops could he turned out In an emergency, but this explanation was received with open credulity. It declared that the administration Was panicstricken, but for what cause no one could haz ai d a guess. Then Gen. Machado, secretary of the interior, who also discharges the functions of war, issued a statement denouncing the critics of the presi dent, whom he announced was first ami foremost a soldier who would not flinch from shedding blood and mak ing the astonishing declaration that even should 90 per cent, of the Cuban people oppose the president's adminis tration they wouldbe crushed with out mercy. This utterance served to renew and Inflame the attacks of the anti-administration press. Added to these elements of unrest has Den a renewal of the agitation re garding the succession to the presi dency. " Despite Gen. Gomez' reitera tion that he would never accept a re uoininalion many of his supporters continue to campaign actively In his behalf and re-elect innists clubs are being formed. There Is no reason to believe that Vice-President Zuyns has the least idea of renouncing his claims to the nomination which was accorded him in the last campaign as the price ot support of his faction in the election of Gen. Gomez. Still another prob able candidate for the presidency whose popularity in the liberal ranks is high, is Gen. Carlos Garcia Velez, the special ambassador at the corona tion in London.

Y who drove an aeroplane across county in a twelve mile flight from the aviation field here in ten minutes. Miss Scott is the first woman to achieve such a feat in America. She ftew. one of Captain Thomas S. Baldwin's biplanes, overtaking a, mere man aviator who' had started first, circled over the village of W 'stbury and returned to the field, making a safe landing. Miss Scott once drove an automobile all the w.vv across the continent. She is a pupil of Captain Baldwin and has made several trial flights on the aviation field. . CORE OF THE EARTH. It May Be a Mate of Steel Some 5.5S0 Milea In Diameter. Various conjectures have been made from time to time by geologists as to the possible condition of the center of the "earth. One of the most popului Impressions seems to be that the earth's center, or corp. U a flam ins furmice. At a meeting of (lie Seis Biological association at The Hague Professor Weicuert asserted that hh studies of the Viii!nK vehwity of earth()inl;o tremors passing through the inteilor of the globe h:tve led him to the conclusion that. the enrtli con gists of tt central core of iron or steel, about 0.5S0 miles in diameter, sur rounded with a stony shell 930 miles In thickness. Between the outer solic riud acd the inner layer of rock, cover ing the metallic core, he thinks there is a layer of liquid or plastic material, lying a little iens than twenty miles below the surface of the earth. Men sometimes dream of enormous wealth stored deep in the earth below the resell of miners, but experts now arer that there Is little or no ground to believe that any valuable melalli.- deposits lie very deep In the earth's erust regardless of Trofossor Wei chert's beliefs to the contrary. Such deposits. It Is wild, are made by under ground waters, and owing to tlie pres sure on the rocks at great depths the waters are confined to a shell near the surface. With few exceptions ore de posits become too lean to repay work ing below 3,000 feet. Nine mines in ten, taking the world as a whole, are poorer in the second thousand feet than in the first thousand, and poorer yet In the third thousand than in the second. New York World. To Stop Hiccough. Simple cases of hiccough are often relieved by such measures Us sucking ice or taking salt and vinegar, says the New York Medical Journal.' Pulling ' the tongae forward and holding It for some time is an effective procedure. Sometimes obstinate hiccough Is "re lieved when the patient is strong by having him hang with the arms ex tended and grasping some beam o pole. so that his feet do not touch the floor. With all the abdominal muscles tense, bave him hold his breath as long as possible- Sneezing is very efficient in certain cases, since It Is the exact opposite to hiccough, j being n sudden expiratory act. McSwiney' Gun. Nearjlorn Head. County Donegal. Ireland, there is a hole In the rocks called McSwIney's gun. It is on the seacoast and is said to have connec tion with a cavern. When the north wind blows and the sea Is at half flood the wind and the waves enter the cavern and send up jets of water from the "gun" to a height of more than 100 feet. Tlie Jets of water are accompanied by explosions which niay be heard for mllei. - 4"T ,; liin is firs i,isii fttza ni I' Rl ks'" r' ! i : , v. 3 i t mm MM 4 MISS BUNCHES SCOTTK HMOTO BY" AMERICAN PRtSi " I " t,,e 'assocatip.N-..-- , ',. ;.J TAPOAY AKYALt.
