Brig- Gen. WiUiam Mitchell, who |
has flown at the, rate of 246 miles
an hour, predicts that there . will
soon be flying, machines, going 5.00
miles an hour. . That would en
able a New York business man to
run over to London in the. morn
ing, transact his business there and
get back^in time for. dinner. It
conjures up, the prospect of all
America commuting to. Europe, or *
S vice versa.
There are certain conditions that
have to be met, however. The fly
ing must be done at a height -of
about 10 miles, where there is .less
air resistance to overcome. There
is not enough oxygen up there for
either man or motor, and so an
artificial supply must be carried.
There must be provision, toe,
against the intense cold of such al
titudes. It may be .necessary to
provide artificial pressure, for
nobody knows what the diminish
ed pressure would do to the body
cells. The body might literally
blow up if shot quickly up to the
sky ceiling. Perhaps there must
be hermetically sealed cabins
rhemselves safeguarded against
explosion from internal pressure as
they rise. Propellers must have .a
greater pitch than is practicable
lower down. Nearly everything]
must be different. -*
It is all interesting?but is it
worthwhle? Suppose, the dangers)
are overoome, what of the gain'
The present age. is. straining for
ever greater speed, as. if speed in
itself were something "necessarily j
desirable- Yet the time taken toj
get somewhere is far less import- j
ant than what the traveler does j
after he gets there.
With ail this speed, too, travel
ing, which ought to be a fine art,
is losing its charm. At 500 miles]
, ah hour, and that up where the j
sky is black and the earth, is a j
blur, travel itself becomes, nothing j
; bjut a temporal and spatial blank ]
"between one spot and another.,

Back in 1893, m ?ne of the most\
poverty-stricken sections of New1
York city, a small medical clinic!
called Beth Israel was- started. I
Many of the Russian refugees of
that time who were the first ones
aided by this Uttle hospital have
since become wealthy, some of:
them millionaires. These. grateful
ex-patients are today making it
possible for Beth Israel to erect a
?3,000,000 hospital to accommo
date 500 patients.
Every provision is to be made
for the comfort and safety of the
inmates, with exceptional protec
tion against fire, wiring" in each.;

and physical theraphy apparatus,
fixtures for portable bathtubs, ten

For a dozen years internal com
bustion engines of the Diesel type
have been tested in small sea-go
ing crafts and have been watched
with inrerest. Marine engineers
have commented favorably upon
their advantages and their pro
gressing development, but the be^
Jref has been general that the
geared steam turbine was the last
word in propulsion at sea.
Now word comes from London
that one of the greatest of Glas
gow shipyards has just contracted
to build, for the Union Steamship
Line of New Zealand, a Coo-foot,
eightetm-knot liner which is to be
propelled by internal combustion
engines. . At last, it is reported,
men have learned.how to construct
engines of this type which can be
depended on to produce as much
power as the geared turbine. Says
the London dispatch:
"If . the Union Steamship Com
pany's vessel proves a success on
the run between Mew Zealand and
Vancouver, there can he .no rea
son of an engineering character
for the use of; steam engines on any
steamship lines. There may be
economic reasons, associated with
the cost of fuel and the. conveni
ence of fuebng stations, but that
is another muter. The first-clas3,
motor-prppel led .Atlantic liner is
well within sight."
... The steam engine has ruled the
I sea now; for near* a century, less
becau.se it was cheap tnan because
it was dependable- If the ship
builders in the, Clyde can. succeed
in propelling big, fast ships with
Deisel engines which are not onljj
dependable but supremely econom
ical in operation, here is big news
indeed. >
If the :"ore.;ts in America are to
be * preserved, the people will have
to be on guard against insect and
f fungus enemies and tree diseases
[as well 2s against wasteful wood
choppers and .forest fires.
According to - an authority on
forestry, ~-f ? something ? is not done
to check the advance of the saw.
fly, wuhm ten years there will not
be a. stick of . tamarack left in
Michigan, where once. this, timber
abounded. Similarly other valu
able timber in other places is in
~?3ted with vegetable and insect
I peat* against whose depredations
i no adequate measures are being ta
ji-j - This is one of the most difficult
problems of forestry not only be
causemen, are prone to think that,
sto matter what may be true of
city trees or home wood lots, the
\Ag woods can take care of them
; selves: !
The advance of civilization has
[ lessened the ability of the forest to
; fight its own battles. Man in his
planting and pushing into the
wilds has spread tree, pests from
one region to another and imported
kinds never known before. In
[ turning o ver the soil he- has set
i free wide-range agencies of der
jstruction, even as he prepared for
healthy growth In his garden,
j While he .has made the forest his
servant as he advanced, he has
not served the forest. It is no
wonder the trees go down under
the unequal battle. If a. man wishes
[to save the forests for himself he
|7nust save them from the forces
-he has loosed against them.
\ While the United States supreme
! court, is preparing to review a case
[determining, the exact rights of the
! middleman, former Vice-President
[Marshall waxes facetious on' the
i subject. Says Marshall:
j' "The wife of one of the chief
j factotums of the Non-Partisan
[League (which is waging mighty
j battle against the middleman) be
came ill. A friend suggested that
she call a doctor. She replied:
"I don't need a doctor. Don't
you know we belong to the Non
: Partisan League and must elimi
nate the middleman? Just call the
Although most people would
rather take a chance on the medic
than lea\*e the crape-hansing gen
tleman for their relatives to deal
with, there are few who do not
wish the generous difference be
tween what the farmer gets for
I his products and what they them
I selves pay for those products at the
counter could linger in their pock
jets instead of the, pockets of the
j go-betweens.
j It is recognized by every intelli
j gent person, that middlemen as a
j class perform a useful service,
j Otherwise they would never have
j appeared in the economic scheme.
I But there is a growing realization
jthat many of them are superfluous
(and many of them take a larger
toll of the stuff passing through
their hands than their service to the
community justifies. Accordingly
j the movement for direct relations
? between producer and consumer is
? bound to grow and steadily restrict
j the middleman's field of operations.
Lots of candidates promise the
I people what they want.?and when
! they are elected the people get
what they deserve.

It may be fair enough if all

"Stabilizing currency" by lop
ping three to six figures off the
mark or ruble seems easy enough.
The wonder is that it doesn't bring
the currency to a dead stop.

sick man). The water supply is

Report of Visit to the Sumter Coun
ty Jail, Made September 7, 1922, j
"by Ass't Secretary Ellison Capers.
The Sumter County jail is very
old and in need of repair. The
cells are dark and gloomy and in
adequate. There were three .white
men and six-negro men (one trusty)
in the'jail. This jail lacks the nec
essary cells and their classification
to care for whites and blacks,
males and 'females, separately.
Jailer D. W. Owens' attitude tor
wards the prisoners is highly com
mendable; he undoubtedly "does all
he can to keep the grounds, the
jail; and the bedding clean, and
they were all in good shape. The
food, encouraged ! by an excellent
jail garden, another of Mr. Owens
efforts, is very good. . '
The jail was visited in company
with Sheriff C M. Hurst, who
showed a most cooperative spirit.
