At a height of about 7<>0 feet he cir- (j,

Baldwin brought Itis ship back to the

groat crowds of spectators.
Subsequent trials have also boon

in every revolution of the large pro
pellor, and in every tnove of the steeling
gear, and of the weights which jj
raise or lower the vessel at will, the
plans of the inventor have been earned
into etYect. The large propellor, hav- ,
ing two nietailie blades, and nearly six
feet in diameter, instead of being
placed at the stern, is located at the
bow of the frame or car, .as in most
recent airships of this type. In this
manner the airship, instead of being
pushed through the air, is pulled. This j |j
facilitates the steering as well as nils- j |

'1*1 to balloon, !>y means of which the
whole machine is raised, is somewhat

balloon is constructed of a very line
i|ua!it.v of silk, extremely strong and m
flexible, and will) the reticulated not- ,i
ting which attaches it to the car, n
weighs only ninety pounds. Tin* bal- t
loon Is inllalod with hydrogen gas, and t
at an ordinary distension pres>uro contains
80(K) cubic feet. |
To this balloon is attached tin- frame ii
Which supports the propelling and ,,

which is made id' strong, light wood, is p

The engine which drives the pro- n

conditions has n<?t yet been definitely tl

The frame, or c;ir, is placed directly ii

My Pet Linen Economy.
I have found it a great saving to
ny remnanta of damask for making
/eryday napkins, carving-cloths, buiau
and sideboard covers. All but
le napkins I decorate by outlining
i>me leaves of other designs with
lkoteen. Recently I bought a remant
of damask?two yards, twentyne
Inches and seventy Inches wide,
seventy-flve-cent quality for one dol.
ir a/nu Lwwniy-nvo cents, i cui uirou
trips, each seventeen Inches wide,
ro^swlse of linen. Each strip made
:wr napkins. Of the piece remaining
cut two sideboard covers, using the
order of the damask for the length,
'hoefe are each forty-two inches long
nd tweuty-ono lnchen wide. The
saves forming the border I outlined
a old gold sllkotv?n. I still had left
, piece thirty-eight by forty-two inchs.
These I finished with a hems'tlrtchid
border an inch deep. Comparing
tiy napkins and cloths with tho ordttary
ones, I have twelve napkins,
w>rth one dollar and twenty-five
:ents>; two carving cloths, worth one
lollar; two sideboard cloths, worth
me dollar, and all together worth
.hree dollars and twenty-five cents,
rtioy oost me only ono dollar and
wftntv-five cents, and I thus saved

I suffered from nervousness ana
leadache until one day about a year
igo it suddenly occurrcd to me what
i groat coffee drinker I wns, and I
bought maybe this might have something
to do with my trouble, so I
thlfted to tea for awhile, but was uofr
jetter, If anything, worse.
"At that time I had a baby four
months old that we had to feed on th?
bottle, until au old lady friend told
me to try Poatura Food Coffee. Three
months ago I commenced using Postum,
leaving off the tea and coffee, and
not only have my headaches and nervous
troubles entirely disappeared, but
since then I have been giving plenty,
of nurse for my baby and have a
large, healthy child now. ,
"I itave no desire to drink anything
but Postum and know It has benefited
my children, and I hope all who have
children will try Postum and find out
for themselves what a really wonder# 1
