The most fascinating form of aviation Is undoubtedly tbo high flight. One watches tho machine rise from tho ground and climb steadily up an Invisible- - Btairway, winding round and round In wldo spirals. From the ,slzo of a monster tho voasol diminishes until It looks like an eagle, then & wild duck, then a pigeon, a blackbirds, a lark, a boo, a fly, a midge and so It Anally disappears out of alght; for men have now flown to over a mile, and It needs a strong gloss and a clear atmosphere for a specta tor to detect a machine at such stupen dous heights. Ono waits In amaxe-'tneasking how tho daring aviator twill return safely to earth from the clouds. Suddenly the machine dart Into sight, and It Is seen plunging downward at on alnrmlngly stoop nnglo. It ,1b the vol plane, or dlvo, tho most of all aerial feats. Having idlmbed to his maximum, tho aviator (shuts off his cnglno and deliberately 'steers downward by the aid of the elevator. He plunges through tho aerial isea at terrific spued, but not at hundreds of miles on hour as soma lm- ,aginatlvo writers havo put It. As the air resistance, underneath his machine, (increases with the speed and tho amount of surface presented to it by (tho planes, the vessel Is automatically led back to Its normal gliding angle, and the downward path becomes lets 'steep. In order not to get too far away from his storting point tho avln-ito- r thereupon makes another spiral at a gentle angle and then starts upon another plunge Thus by a succession of these maneuvers he comes to a position from which he can make a final glide and reach the ground smoothly and without shock.

Tho rango of toys is greater than over before, and uptodato stocks will show now things in cut glass, Japanese ware and other art goods. Tho genius of modern manufacture is clearly demonstrated In Hickman's Christmas bazaars, and young and old will experience a keen delight in visiting them.
