BEATRICE PAljtFAX. Deariillaa Fairfax: I- am !0 years, old and have'known a young man two years older who has lived near me all my life. I havo been abroad for five years, and, upon my late return home, of course, resumed friendly relations with his peo ple. He asked me if he might kiss me which I refused, and after that tried several times In a playful way ,to caress me. which I also resented, whereat he called me "cold" and said I had no rea son to be so distant with htm, and now keeps shy of me and has broken several promles he made me, although in all other respects Z have tried to show a friendly Interest In him. Was I really too' reserved? Does our long acquaint ance really eritltlt him- to that kind of familiarity? I think a good deal of him, but more of my 'self-respect Do you think If he really cares as much for me as he appeared to at first he would be so; easily discouraged? PUZLD. pa he called you "cold" did ho. Dear Girls! Draw Mbist Cloth Through Hair Try this! Hair gets thick, glossy, wavy and beautiful at once Stops falling out. Immediate?

Birds and ; Aeroplanes Inventors Aro Making a Special Study of All the Species of Bird Plight in Hope of Solving Secret of Flying If Successful, Aeroplane Flying- Will Bo RevolutioniBed and W.ill Be Practical . and Safe J) Ah 'English philosopher once wrote, s, book on the human hand, showing its tradable adaptations to Us purpose, and Its almost Infinite capabilities as an in strument, or tool. There Is no doubt that many of tho most ingenious and effective mechani cal inventions that have ever been made are based upon, and wra probably suggested by, the wonderful capacities of the human hand and fingers. Inventors havo been able to follow those hints from the structure of tho hand be cause, by dally use, all tho various func tions of its different parts are perfectly understood. The wing of a bird Is as marvellous an Instrument as tho hand of a man, and If Its action could he as easily comprehended it would show us very -quickly the best way to construct a flying machine. Un fortunately, slnco we are not born with wings, there 'aro many things about them which aro mysteries to ub, Inventors well understand thts fact, and special studies of the wings of birds aro being mad6 for the purpose of getting more light upon their action, in order that the knowledge thus acquired may bo applied to the Improvement of aeroplanes. Messrs. Ilousay and Maguan, of tho Paris Sorbonne, have, with this, object in view, Investigated tho flimht of 200 birds, belonging to seventy-five different, spe cies. Thoy have discovered many very interesting facts, which may servo to guide the lm'cntors- of future aeroplanes. One thing that they havo found out, which greatly surprised them( Is that tho ratio of the motive power of birds to tho supporting surface of the body and wings varies inversely instead of directly. This means that If thj .supporting sur face Is large the motlvo power is pro portionately small, and If tho supportlnr surface Is small the motive, power s pro portionately large. Or, to put It in dif ferent words, the larger tho wing sur-. face the smaller the- mptlve power,, and vlco Verso. This fact may provo of great ubo, for hitherto It has' been assumed ;by the; makers of aeroplanes that the .best, fly ing machine must be that having' the most powerful motor and at the same time the greatest lifting power per unit of surface. Exactly tho opposite relation is found among birds. The best flyers have, by far, the feeblest motive .power and carry tho smallest weight per unit of. surface. Direct comparison has shown' that If, an aeroplane of thirty feet spread, and carrying about four pounds per square foot, is reduced homologous'ly, or part by part, to tho dimensions of a bird, of three feet spread, It can carry a weight of only about two-fifths of a pound per square toot of surface. Now, no bird is anything like so inefficient as that. It becomes evident, then, that the wing of tho bird depends for its power, upon' something else besides area. The - ele ments that muct be taken into account,, and 'which we cannot yet Imitate, "or fully comprehend, aro the quality of the feathers, the stiffness of the supporting tbs, their elasticity, and other unknown; circumstances, which, it is suggested, may depend upon alimentation of the bird, that is, upon Us mode of nourishment and. digestion, which, in turn, affects Its ner vous and muscular systems. Probably a complete comprehension of tho mechanism of flight of a single bird, such as tho gull, would place in our hands the means of making a flying ma chine incomparably superior to any yet produced. The full secret of the bird be ing discovered, we might be able to. imi tate It But that secret remains hidden. Not long ago I stood on the deck of a steamer In Plymouth harbor, and, with a number of Intelligent men,, who were as Interested as myself, watched the. flight of hundreds of gulls, which came so close that the movements of their eyes were plainly visible It was an exhibition of nature's maglo as wonderful as could bo Imagined. The birds soared, turned, de scended, rose, increased and decreased their speed, by slight tlpplngs of their wings and changes of balance, only oc caelonally flapping their wings for a few seconds, and- it actually seemed to ' the observer as If they did all this by mere exercise of the will, as we sometimes lm agine ourselves flying in our dreams. One would have said that they possessed some source or kind fit energy unknown to us, When the steamer moved off they fol lowed and, without the least apparent ex ertion, and often without any visible movement of wing, kept abreast or it, outstripped it and sailed' all around it Without a single flap of its wlngs-a gull would suddenly double its speed. Nobody could see how it did it. In visible air currents probably play a part In the phenomenon, but that Is not all. The secret also lies partly in the struc ture and action of the feathers and In the control of tbe bird Over the curvature of Its wing surfaces. Existing aeroplanes aire a good 1egTn nlt'g. but only a beginning, and beforo they can be perfected we must carry them through a course of evolution re sembling that which the birds have un dergone during the long agis that have elapsed since ther repttllian ancestors first developed wings and learned to fly.

"I suppose any ono of us would like to be as beautiful as a poet's dream or the artist's choice of tho 'most beautiful By-and-By By and By.'" With ' that the doctor snatched up a piece of paper and wen to writing, and within .fifteen or twenty minutes he handed Webster the paper1 with the' words of the song all written out There's a land that Is fairer than day, And by faith We can see It afar," ete. "There," said Bennett, as he handed his friend the paper, "write a tune for that" Webster looked It carefully over, and turning to a man named Bright who worked in the store, said to him, "Hand me my fiddle over the counter, please." The fiddle was handed to him and he went to work at one to make a tuno, "In less than half an hour," says Ben' nett, "Webster and I were singing to gether the words and music.
