Kalkaska Air Ship Is It a Dream or In Fact a Reality? NEW BRIDGE AT TRAVERSE. fj : averse City Record, John Monroe of East Jordan has a force of men building a scow on the river bank in the vicinity of West Front street bridge preparatory to building the concrete bridge at this point. Mr. Monroe has received the piling for the work, there being nine carloads of this material already on hand, fie Is building a scow 40x18 feet upon which he will place his pile driving machin ery and engine. The scow is being built substanially as he will leave It in the river permanently. He stated to the Record that he would put the beet kind of machinery he could buy on It. His machinery is already on the road and lie has been locking for it for ov i s week and cannot account for tho delay. As soon as the scow is completed work will commence on Ue bridge. Begin At Once.

A dream may be; but yet a dream which in the mind of a shrewd, kindly faced old man of that village is no dream but a plain fact, needing only time to bring it to fulfillment. Fwr nearly a year W. C. Freeman of Kalkaska, stirred by the offer of a reward of $100,000 for the speediest dirigible airship' to be shown at the St. Louis exposition ay September 1 of this year, has spetit his time in a little red shopon the outskirts of the town while he and a corps of half doz en assistants have worked away on the machine which Mr. Freeman tirm iy believes will revolutionize transpor tation methods. Six weeks more will see it finished and ready for trial and t hen: Ho, for St. Louis and the capital prize. Mr. Freeman's invention is an air ship pure and simple, driven by wings and propelled by steam. Cutting en tirely away from Laugly and his in clined planes, from Sautos-Dumont and his balloons, from a dozen others whose theories have failed when put to the practical test, the Kalkaska man has hit upon what he believes is I new principle, and so confident is he of suecess that he is willing to stake not only his whole large fortune but his life itself on the result. A visitor to the Freeman shop is apt 4u the first place to be somewhat im pressed by the secrecy which shrouds every movement of the inventor and his assistants in the shoo where the work is done. All doors are locked and the windows fitted with shutters, and though occasionally a man gains entrance who has no plausible busi ness there, he usually stays on'y long enough to get out. The visitor tinds himself in a long, high room, crowded atone end with whirring steel drills and rasping saws aud tilled with the odor of stale lubri cating oil and sawdust, w hile at the other end, raised on blocks and sup ported by frames, rests a little squat cigar-shaped structure with two kmej arms reaching out from its body on either side aj if in readiness to grasp the first thing touched. Each pair Of these arms is joined at its extremities. Rising from the joints to a height of six feet are ver tical steel shafts, and other vertical shafts are set midway between the ends of the arms and the squat body. These four shafts, when the machine Is completed, are to carry the horizon tal wings, and each shaft will be driven by an engine built into the aim on which it rests. The wings themselves at first sight remind one of nothing so much as windmill blades, set horizontally in stead of vertically and divided into series one above the other on the ver tical shaft, six blades in a scries and four series on the shaft, each blade in a series being parallel with the others. The engines, which Mr. Freemam has himself built are marvelous little compound affairs of brass and steel, so small that you could almost slip one of them in a side pocket. But each is capable of developing five horse-power, and with three cylinders set at the Corners of an equilateral triangle there la no dead center possible. The boil ers, of which there are two, also built of Crescent steel by Mr. Freeman him self, are of six horse-power capacity each, but the wonderful efficiency of the little engines is expected to de velope more than that. The airship when completed will be forty-eight feet over all, the end wing ten feet in diameter and the others twelve and the cigar shaped car nearly sixteen feet long, three feet in diameter and four feet high. All of the frame work is of seasoned white basswood. Whether the Inventor's theories will stand the test Of trial remains to be seen, his purpose being, as soon as the machine is finished to give it private and public trials here and then, if it works sat isfactorily, to attempt the aerial journey to St. Louis. Certain it, is, that nothing in the world is more sure than Mr. Freeman's confidence in his own success. "Why, I've had this Idea In my head for forty years," he said. "Of course my machine will fly." To study for forty years on one proj eot implies that the man who does it must be Ktt ing along In years. Mr. Freeniau is nearly 74. He looks 60, but he is today capable of doing as much in a day as the majority of his employes of 20 or 30. He has been a patron of the patent office all his life. As the head of the Freeman Manufac turing company, the principal indus try In that village, he employs . '100 men in the manufacture of wooden-ware novelties. Many of the machines used in his plant are of his own invention, while at .the Chicago world's fair he was given a gold medal for having pro duced one of the forty inventions, which, in the opinion of the fair com mittee had worked the greatest revol ution in mechanical methods in recent years. Mr. Freeman's invention was a machine for cutting potato mashers and wooden spoons and in his factory today it does in ten hours the work which required OM man a month to do before. Naturally, the Inventor is well-to-do. "I've put about $4,000 into my airship thus far," he says, "and I'm just well started." He means to build it, and if, after that he reaches the coveted goal, his name w ill go into history. If he fails lie will at least have the satisfaction of proving his tlnories groundless. S.
