A. C. McClaughry of Chicago, son of former W arden L W. Mc Claughry of the Federal peniten tiary at Leavenworth, Kan., dis covered the craft and its inventor in a basement on the Northwes Side of the city. The identity i-f the inventor is kept secret. Mc Claughry is now interested with the inventor in the welfare of the new type of flying craft. He has brought the matter to the official attention of army officers in the Federal building, and before rep resentatives of foreign govern ments. CoL H. O. S. Heistand, adjutant general of the centra! department, turned McClaughry over to M. A. Lose!;.-, master signal electrician of the army will inspect the now craft. McCloughry said the first one tried out by the inventor was a success, but that it was torn down and a new one is now being; built, which will soon be ready for j official tests. "There is no doubt but that we have a flying machine that can be operated without any power other than that produced by foot and hand and that the craft can be sold dirt cheap,” said McClaughry. The inventor figures that one of the machines can be put up for less than 500, and that in quantities they can even be turned out for $300 each. The craft, for which patents are now pending is operat ed much like the old fashioned bicycle. A farmer boy can take one of them and he and his lady friend can saunter away through the air as easily as they can travel on land in an automobile. ‘•If one wishes he can buy a $50 motor and use it to alternate with foot and hand. In his first test the inventor remained in the air more than half an hour and travel ed at a speed of forty miles an hour.” -» Get Your Ticket for the A. B. BaP.

WILL MAKE PAPER OUT OF GRAS (From the New York Times) As a means of conservation I forestry, the department of agri culture is experimenting with wire grass as a source of supply fo. pulp for making paper instead of poplar or liriodendron. Wire gras. as it is commonly known in the West, grows on the Pacific slope and in Western Mexico. It forms a dense mat of roots and yields in fertile soils, sometimes as higi as three tons of grass. It is fib rous and tough and can be reduc ed by the soda process. To use of the “hog” by which wood is redu. ed to pulp, is entirely done awn: with. ..The paper manufactured from the stock has proved satisfactory, in physicist tests, as a first-grade, machine-finished printing paper, it has. moreover, a very satisfactory appearance and feeling. For bleach ing. however, the experiments showed that more bleaching powder was required than with popla" stock. It has been estimated that the growth of wood in the United States is being removed at the rate of 36 cubic feet per acre each year while the natural increase is a* th- rate of 12 cubic feet an acre In ether words wood is being use*' three times as fast as it grows. The consequence is. of course, a con tinual increase in the price of raw material and the desirability of■ finding some substitute is obvious. -... - AT THE HOTELS AT THE STEDMAN W. H.
