He also found that he could make it go off the wind many degrees. In speaking the other day to the reporter of what he could now make the kite do, he said that it would not sail upon the wind as the Vigilante and Valkyrie did. but it could make some very remarkable tacks.

A couple of his pupils last summer tool; a carriage ride on the shore of Long Island, in the vicinity of Arverne. where the motive power was a star shaned kite, seven feet in diameter and I bound with line cords.

The ladies of the Women's Relief could not be raised from shipboard. He s'nn believed that he had over come the objection of raising the kite by top lines to the top of a flagstaff, and when it filled he cm the top line and allowed it to go free. This is the method he now uses upon shipboard, and- is herewith illustrated, though the end of a yardarm is shown, elevation being the only necessary condition. It is now claimed that it is even easier to raise it upon shipboard than upon land, and even 'if it falls in the -.iUi-during its preparation for flight, this does not interfere with its final flight. IlullilinB the Flyer. After it was assured that it could be raised among ropes and spats and without the area of a ten-acre lot came the planning of the present invention, which consists of a complete outfit to be placed upon shipboard for flying lines ashore in case of shipwreck iii all conditions of weather.

It was surprising how easily this could be done; the top line steadied the kite on the saiue principle as the tail, be sides supportjng It until it could 1ms made elf-supporting.

This was cut and allowed td slip free and the flying lines td pay out about 400 feet. Then one was cut and fastened to a loop in the end of the life line. Then the other was cut and fastened at the same place, after being drawn in so as to deflect the kite 4U degress off the wind. The buoy waa" passed overboard and the, lino was sil- lowed to run out about an eighth of .i mile, preserving the course laid for if. There it was checked while iihdef rapid headway, the line was drawn ill and tiie kieper placed In command. IteMiiItK or VnrlonH Test: "He directed the kite Straight to leeward and sent the line out a mile to sea in less than twenty minutes, the line being n arked with leather at each quarter mile. The flrst quarter ran out in two minutes, although two men were braking the reel with staves. 'i ne second quarter was not timed, as we stopped the hue to try its pull, which was more than one man could hold. The third quarter ran out in four and a half minutes and the fourth in eight minutes. "It was noticed that whenever the line was checked the kite immediately lifted the buoy fifty of sixty feet out of water and dropped it again as soon as ii resumed its headway. It is be lieved that the same effect would b produced by obstructions such as float ing spars, reefs and bars. The Hire was hauled in by five men. working at two cranks of the life line reel. The kite remained flyliig until brought to the deck. "Next the kite was dropped over the ship's side into the water and by haul ing on the lines was raised aud put in flight. It was found that this could be done with the flying lines alone without the top lines by hauling on one only, which raised the kite partly and .allowed the wind to sweep under it and lift It out of the wAtm and put it tc flight.

Step by step the British South Africa company forced its way into Mashona h ml until its people were conquered, and now it is invading Matahelcland. A century ago Esenziueonyarna, the king of the Zulus, established his court on the shore of the Bay of Santa Lu cia, and here he reigned without a rival over his own tribe and all others lit the region south of the upper Orange river. All these tribes were welded J. into, plio mighty nation.

A French gentleman who visiteel Dal inatia, in Austro-IInngary, tells how he unconsciously posed as a native digni tary. He visited the iolice court of Zara, the capital of the country, one day to take some sketches of the Dal matian peasants who had been sum moned from neighboring villages as witnesses in a ease that was being trieel. Among others he sketched two line-looking old women. Each wore on her head a large snow white turban, trimmed with red rib bons, with great braids of false hair tieel with green ribbons. Their broad silver girilles were ornaiuenteel with uncut jewels. They stood with their nanus ciaspeu, motionless and appar ently frightened about something I could not tell what. I-iter the judge called me to him and told me that the two old peasants who bad posed for me an hour with such apparent good will had come to him to make a complaint. They had solemnly related how "a man had kept them standing for an hour looking at them sternly and writ ing all the time, and finally that he had given them each a florin, but had not pawed sentence upon them." The poor old women had thought I was a jndge, and that while I was studying them to cStch the expression of their faces and the pose of their heads, I was trying to read their hearts r.nd discover if there were any guilt oa their conscience are Zulus of pure blood Lobeniraln n Drupot. Nearly every white man who has per sonally met Lobengula has described him as a man whose will is absolute throughout his dominions. He is care-! fill not to permit outrages upon white men, and has always had a horror of white men dying in his kingdom. AA'Iion Mr. Oates visited his court .t few days ago and asked for help in reaching tiie great falls of the Zambesi river the king asked him why ho did not choose some other country to die in. Loben gula has always welcomed white trad ers and travelers, but has grown sus picious the moment they displayed any desire to icaeh the Zambesi. He seemed to fear the purpose of those ex peditious. And the result has justified his worst apprehensions. The present war Is due largely to the countenance give'n to the British South Africa company's encroachments by Cecil lthodes. the British colonial governor of South Africa. It is sus pected that his financial interest in the great Africa railway schemes has in crcaseel his friendly policy toward the company. The disapproval of .Air. (Jladstone's government was shown by the appointment of Sir Henry Loch as Imperial commissioner to conduct further negotiations with King Loben gul.i. The claims of those who justify the advance of the company's droops "have been summed up in Rider Haggard's recent letter to the London Times, Long ago an English correspondent interviewed Frank Thompson of Natal, who negotiated with Lobengula for the mining rights of his domains in ex- A Tooth for ?r00 Filed Xntlvc. a month, a cunlioat change anil an arsenal of ammunition. Here is Mr. Thompson's description of the dreaded black monarch: "Lobengula? You would nor. ensllr forget him if you saw him. He stands six feet in his skin, and is fat and big all over, weighing about 280 pounds. He walks as I have seen no other man walk before or since, moving his ele phant limbs and planting his feet one after the other as if he were planting A Ilecrnt F.nlHle in I.iiUc Krle Iii a erowre'd Lake Shore coach. Chicago bound, sev eral AVheeling e-itizms were witnesses i of a dude's downfall. Near the rear of the coach sat a little group of AVhcel ingites endeavoring to get a wink of sleep. A young lady sat nearly oppo site. She was neatly attired, and tho way she chewed gum and tried to at tract attention cuiicd on.Iderablo comment. In a little while a sort of rushing was hoard and two spceiinens of dudNli humanity entered from the front platform of the eo.ie'h. Every body saw them. One in pnrtleMilar acted in a manner to e-ause a hum of disapproval as he crossed his gloved hands and swinging his heud from siele to side walked toward the rear ef the car. Tlie gum-eater's name was "Lou ise," and tlie dudes addressed her and sat down by her. Two couple's from the e'ountry. evi dently going to the fair, entere-d the car at the next station. One of tuese men was a great big six-footer, good natured looking, his demeanor seeming to indicate that he would like to get along pi'aceabiy with peotde generally. The young fcuks across the aisle, the obnoxious dude leading, began to make fun of the new-comers. They gave them direction ns how to best see the fair, and told them they were all right if they wore from tiie farm. The six footer said nothing. "It would be a pleasure to do that chap," said a Whcelingite. This was the sentiment of many. At last tho farmer moved. He slowly arose from his seat, crossed the aisle, grabbed tlie dude by the col lar and thrust his skinny head against the window frame and held him there in a grasp evidently like a vice. Tho dude changed colors, and. after hold ing him till his tongue began to hang out he let him go. The farmer re sumed his seat along side his girl, but didn't say a single word to her while ' attending to his choking contract or j after ho sat down. Tho dude and his companions kept mum. but the passen- I gors who had seen the fun, gave the choker quite an ovation. AVlieeUng 1 legist or. I A. ANDERSON". J. H. GALLET, President. VIc Pres't. O. T.
