NEWCOMB Americas Astronomer CHARLES the By ZANGWILL of Will Never Prove PROF 4Eminent CLARK Let us in fairness see what is to be placed on the credit side of air navigation First and almost alone among these must be in the readers mind the fact that steam transportation on land requires building of railways which are so expensive that the capital invested in them proLbly exceeds that invested in all other forms Moreover there are large areas of the earths surface not yet accessible by rail among which are the two poles and higher mountains All such regions the mountains excepted we may suppose to be attainable by the perfected ship of the The more carefully we analyze these possible advantages the more we shall find them to diminish in importance Every part of the earths surface on which men now live in large numbers and in which important industries are prosecuted can now be reached by railways or will be so reached time True this will involve a constantly increasing investment of capital But fifhe interest on this investment will be a trifle in comparison with the cost and drawbacks incident to the general introduction of the best system of serial transportation that is even ideally possible in the present state of your knowledge May we not say that the efforts at aerial navigation now being made ire simply most ingenious attempts to substitute as a support of moving bodies the thin air for the solid ground And is it not evident on care T jFul consideration that the ground affords a much better base than all ever wherelwe are In the air ire are carried about by every wind that blows Any use that we can make Hof the for the purpose of transportation even when our machinery attains ideal perfection will be uncertain dangerous expensive and in 4 efficient as compared with transportation on the earth and oceanrrbe jggamour which surrounds the idea of flying through the air is the result sof ancestral notions implanted in the minds of our race before steam transportation had attained its present development Exceptional cases here may be in which the airship will serve a purpose but they are few and unimportant J Crop Reportsi j and e- Farmerr By C Sata if SUlblks the f the the air in air The government crop reports are es pecially valuable to farmers who are bene fited by them both directly and indirectly Those farmers who read the reports and thus keep informed as to condition and prospects of crops profit in a direct way while all are indirectly benefited through this knowledge being imparted to the great body of progressive and intelligent farmers and dealers instead of remaining the exclu sive possession of a few persons- It is well known that speculators and large dealers in farm products do not depend entirely upon government reports for information concerning crop conditions They have traveling agents and correspondents usually local buyers throughout the United States who keep them posted upon local conditions and the large buyer or speculator in return gives to these local buyers or correspondents information in regard to general conditions Local buyers know the conditions of crops in vicinity better as a rule than the average farmer because it is their business to keep well informed The farmer can not by refusing to re iport for his locality the condition of crops prevent buyers or speculators governmentsJ crop reports which are made up largely by and for him the farmer could riot be sure of receiving any equivalent information from a disinterested jonrce He may know very well the condition of crops in his own locality but must depend upon reports of others in the newspapers or elsewhere for the conditions of the entire crop Prices in his home market are in JLnenced as a rule jnore by the condition of the whole crop than by local conditions The entire wheat crop of his county may be destroyed and graces be low if the entire crop is large or his county may have a bump f tcrop and prices be very high if the entire crop is short Some private reports published in newspapers are honestly prepared amore or less reliable on the other hand misleading crop reports are frequently sent throughout the country to affect prices in the interest of t dipeculators The average farmer does not know which reports are reliable slid which are sent out to mislead The government reports enable farm ers to keep themselves informed as to the general conditions while the wide publicity given them checks and limits the evils of false reports sent uout by persons interested in forcing the prices of products to figures not rA Justified by actual conditions New Plays rT and Ii Public 1 Dramatist Navigation AirI Successful ofransportation future their The manner of bringing forward new plays such as that of submitting a new pro duction to a matinee is simply a way of securing an unprejudiced judgment some thing that the average firstnight audience does not give One sees at the usual first night the same rows of regular theater goers the same row of dramatic critics whosementalattitude is more or less set And I for one do not see why the dramatist should have to depend upon the verdict of such an audience as an indica tion of the future of the play As a matter of fact he does not depend upon it because uponrr e spectators happen to pass a work It is the ultimate judgment of the public that tells and that y be very different from that of the firstnighters Oscar Wilde said a very clever thing when he remarked 1 do not j to firstnights of my own plays to see whether or not my play will be jwccess but to see if the audience will be a success And that is really the proper state of mind for the dramatist The theatricaltomworld is really a good thing for the drama It offers more scope for works weal merit and the dramatist is not necessarily the only person likely benefit Butihe average theatrical manager is strongly conservative Wito what lie regards agthe theatrical ideaVand the way

a Wheels HubVidthsIi For Streets and During the past two or three years a i number of elaborate reports have been plansIIthese are Interesting to all municipal officials their very elaborateness may serve to discourage ihe smaller com munities whose resources would not permit any approximation to the ex penditure required for such improvements Fortunately their needs are similarly much less than those of the larger cities A recent report for the suburban town of RIdgewood N J which has been submitted by Charles Mulford Robinson is unusually com plete considering the size of the town and is an illustration of the fact that intelligent and expert study of condi tions and recommendations for Im provements are as desirable for the small community as for the large and that the adoption of the plans need not entail impossible expense says the Municipal Journal and Engineer- In considering the general street plan the report starts with the railroad sta tion as the chief focus of traffic it being the effort of every commuter to either reach it or get away from it in the shortest possible time twice every day The natural tendency for a suburb is to grow around the station as a center In concentric rings and in the Ideal suburban street plan diagonal thoroughfares would radiate from the station like the spokes from the hub of a wheel Between these thoroughfares at brief intervals would be short and quiet streets A secondary focus of the town should be furnished by the town hall and postoffice TakIng up the detailsof the streets Mr Robinson first considers the side walks and unhesitatingly condemns most of those in Ridgewood because the walk proper is placed about twelve to eighteen Inches from the curb In stead of being at least three feet as it should be in any residential district From five to ten feet would be better while for parkways boulevards etc the distance should be still greater Assuming a walk six feet wide which is generally ample on a street sixty feet between lot lines there should be three feet planted in turf between the property line and the walk then ten feet in turf between the walk and the curb the latter strip carrying the street trees and In most cases being further ornamented with flowers and low shrubs Then would come a twenty two foot roadway which is sufficiently wide for any residential street in a small suburb which is not arterial or does not carry a heavy pleasure traffic On a street eighty feet wide assuming that there are no car tracks there Is such ample room for beautifying the street that either the width of the side parking between walk and curb could centralIeighteen feet wide a five foot strip of turf still separating the walk from the curb Few wagons exceed eight feet in width over all and touring cars sel dom reach seven feet so that an eIght- een foot roadway allows ample room for passing Where there Is a middle strip of parking all through traffic on each side should be in the same direc tion Appearance is not the only argument in favor of such proportioning of the street space butt economy also argues in its favor A square foot of road way Is more expensive to construct and to maintain than an equal area of turf also from a sanitary point of view the wider the road the greater the volume of dust and the closer the road comes to the curb the nearer this dust is to the houses and to pedes trians Moreover it is assumed of course that shade trees will be planted in the strip between sidewalk and curb and the wider this is the healthier the trees are apt to be and the less the damage they do to both curb and sidewalk paving When trees are planted in a strip only a few Inches wide either they will be puny and sickly and ultimately die for lack of nourishment or if they do grow vigorously they will force up the walk and throw the curb out of line With the wider strip of turf there Is a better symmetry to the street as a whole a few inches width only of such being too insignificant a dimension In comparison with the others and irritating by the lack of balance Moreover wide parking seems to increase the depth of the adjacent lots and gives the houses n better setting As to curbing it Is recommended that uniformity In construction be required in each civic unit such unit be tag a whole street or at least a section Considerably longer than one lot The report recommends the substitution of concrete gutters for cobble ones stat ing that the latter are diffleult to keep clean and are soon deficient in orderli ness of aspect Street trees should be an Mr Robinson states the property of the community as a whole and in charge of its representative one who has ex pert knowledge and who should be rer trporisible for their welfare in every way The trees on any civic nn should be uniform In variety age and spacing II placed alternately on op it posite sides of the streets large grow Ing essuch as maples or elms I apartIre for both utility and looks The radius should be not less than six feet and where the sidewalk width Is sufficient this may be increased to nine feet or theIwhere they exist curves should be sub stituted for them A break in the line of a street Is frequently desirable but angles give an objectionable stiffness opIstreet lnterectiotis available for the location at their centers of round or oval flower beds In these low conifers may be massed as they are main taiued in good appearance with little trouble Such beds should be pro tected from teams by coping Shrub bery placed thus in the center of the roadway is far more effective than side parking as it is visible far up and down the intersecting streets Street jogs the failure of streets on the op posite sides of an intersecting street to meet in alignment should not be left square but the corners of each should be rounded so as to obtain a continuous reversed curve The report calls attention to the desirability of ordinances establishing building lines on all streets Unless there is such an ordinance any prop erty owner may injure not only his immediate neighbors but the appear ance of a long stretch of street by generalhood How far this building line ulll be back from the property lineShOo streetThe be decided separately for each matter of parks parkways and recreative facilities is treated of in this report at some length but these depend so almost entirely upon the local topography and other conditions that there are few general rules which it seems advisable to endeavor to state One point however is worthy of emphasisthe great need in most suburban towns of making the surroundings of the railroad station much more attractive than so many of them now are These surroundings shouldI be such as to conceal as far as possible the cruder and more unsightly features necessarily connected with some sta tions such as side tracks turntables etc by locating here artistic group ings of shrubbery and shade trees which shall offer a pleasing

to Be National Belle For a Few Months Time was when the debut of the daughter of the president of the Unit ed States would have been relegated to the category of unimportant affairs concerning only the United States everyIof congratulation and probably a few gifts from personal friends who are high in the cabinets of foreign lands the event will be noted in courts and will figure in the chronicles of foreign capitals along with the doings of royalty The slender young girl who stands so luminously before the world just now is a type of which every American may be proud She is just seven teen and a few months and is young for debutantes as the buds are intro duced nowadays But the delight of reigning a short while as national belle was too alluring for even such a level headed young woman as Miss Ethel to forego She possesses the healthy de sire of all girls to have a good time and certainly a debut in the White operaIcollegiate course and after finishing her academic training at the Cathedral school she devoted all her attention to the accomplishments necessary forthe- belle who would shine in such a com plex assembly as Washingtons official society She is a good musician a clever con versationalist clever with her brush and pen and can make conversation in three tongues besides English MISS ETHEL ROOSEVELT Unlike Mrs Longworth Miss Ethel is fond of books and she has gathered a fine library during her years in this White House Books are the most welcome gift that can be offered and as her friends have learned this she has added largely to her treasures Her skill as a needlewoman is almost national and her pretty little fancy articles have figured in church festivals and gentlewomens files for the past five years handiwould make her mark in the social world even without the prestige of a White House environment is univer sally conceded Interest centers in the plan for her debut party and great is the longing of every one socially in clined young old and middle aged to ocIhave decided that as Miss Alice Roosevelt was presented atva ball so the second daughter must expect the same brilliant fete But conditions differ widely from those when Mrs Long worth made her bow Mrs Roosevelt was comparatively new to her high position and her circle of friends was more circumscribed Then Mrs Lout worth possessed much independence of character as well as an income of her own to execute her own plans Miss Ethel is more amenable and the wishes of her parents have always been para mount A ball seems the proper func flog but people shudder at the Pan dora box of ills which could spring from such an entertainment Mrs Roosevelt has hitherto displayed mark ed independence when it comes to planning her private amenities She has drawn a rigid line between the ob ligations of the presidents wife and those Of Mrs Theodore Roosevelt Original Sin Out of Date It is doubtful if there ever was a time when people were more impressed with the idea of personality than they are today In novels and in plays as well as in real life it no lougez- s inter us to know what people do We want to know what they are Even afferrqd to a fact deplored by a woman exclaimedyoung days it was called original sin Und whipped out of a child Far however from adoptg these drastic pleasures the modern parent realizing j- f if r Iruare to count for anything in life they must not only be themselves but they must mean something The reason of so many peoples dullness lies in the fact that they mean nothing They have no purpose in life and going blind and dumb through the world they leave off every evening no wiser than they were hi the morning To be redeemed from such commonplaceness only one thing is necessary namely personality Whatever we are it is better to be ourselves than to be an imitation or an echo of somebody else and only by making the most of ourselves can we hope to make any thing of life Most peoples lives are failures not so much because destin has been unkind to them but because they have not known how to make the best of themselves mentally or phys ically Instead of developing their in stinct they have neglected it if they have not actually crushed it out of existence And instinct being the basis of personality they drift helplessly as tha result of its repression on the tide of events which they can neither con quer nor control In our present state of artificial civ ilization it isoof course the custom to assume that our instinct must neces sarily be wrong Like everything else that is natural we are brought up to mistrust ituSecond thoughts are best is a maxim instilled into us in childhood and instead of relying upon the prompt and usually unerring decisions of our instinct we are taught to refer all perplexities to the calm and inspired arbitration of our reason In all strong personalities however in stinct far from being suppressed acts in complete accord with reason Make Haste Slowly This is an age of hurry and we are all inclined to do everything in a rush forgetting that hurry retards our work and the more quietly we do what is to be done the more quickly and better it is done Hasten slowly is the advice given in an exchange for the first necessity is to find ourselves outto find out for a fact where and how we hurry and how we have the sense of hurry with us all the time Haying found our selves out the remedy is straight before us- Nature Is on the side of no hurry and will come to our aid with higher standards of quiet which are always back in every ones brain if we only look to find them Five minutes sitting quietly and tak ing long breaths to get a sense of no hurry every day will be of very great help and then when we find ourselves hurrying let us stop and recall the best quiet that we know That need only take a few seconds and the gain Is sure to follow Festina lente hasten slowly S Uld be in the back of our brain all day and every day Tis haste makes waste

WIJlCHEITEI IFW2r I I ROADMIKING1GAYEL How the Material Should Be Ap oJplied and Selected UNDERDRAWING RightlytracerHi9hwaYTho Advantage ofa Flat Roadway Even where gravel employed has been applied in road construction in Maryland owing to its method of application the roads do not always main tain their form as they should in wet weather This fault is not usually due to the material employed so much as an o entire lack of proper grading and underdraining Merely to throw some gravel overt awet or spongy place without raising the level of the roadbed or making any provision for the j drawing off of the water can never make a road which will not cut through and become muddy whenever the frost comes out of the ground The water sinks through tIle gravel covering into the clayey foundation and renders the latter yielding to the overlying road Which pilsbes the wheels through t gravel into the clay or if the covering Is thin causes the clay to be pushed up between the pebbles With proper attention toward grad lug underdraining and the shaping of SHOWING now GRAVEL IS SOON DEPOSITED AT FOOT OF A lITXiIi WHEN PLACED ON STEEP GRADES the road before the gravel is placed upon it considerable improvement maybe made on almost any of the roads where gravel is obtainable as it mak anjeven hard and firm roadbed when supported by proper foundations An example of the better constructed gravel roads Is that extending from Marlboro to Washington which was built originally as a toll road An economical form of construction is to use the gravel as a support for macadam surface where the travel ov any particular thoroughfare would warrant such an improvement The crown or transverse slope ofa roafl should only be sufficient to carry the surface water to the gutters On dirt roads where ruts are easily formed the slope needs to be more than on a macadamized surface but never suffi dent to cause inconvenience to travel One inch to the foot or seven and a half inches on a fifteen foot road will be found about right A good macadam road does not ordinarily need so much crown depending on the grades On grades up to and including four feet per hundred onehalf inch to the foot is sufficient from four to and includ- Ing six feet per hundred threequarters of an inch should be allowed A transverse slope of more than one inch per foot gives too much list to a wagon when at one side The advantage of as flat a road as possible is the lessening of the tendency for the travel to keep to the center of the road and the con sequent avoidance of the formation of pathJThere in Mary land where gravel of excellent quality Is abundant and where at the same time there is very little stone that is fit for road construction The gravel however properly applied will make most excellent roads far superior to l any earth road and while not possess lug the wearing qualities of hard broken stone will answer sufficiently well for those country roads that have com paratively light traffic On roads hay tug very heavy traffic it will be found In the long run to be cheaper even at a very much greater first cost to use a macadam construction owing to the rapid wearing of the gravel road under such circumstances and the consequently large expense for maintenance- A good gravel can always be told when inspected as it stands in place in the pit Whenever it is hard and compact In the bank and requires the nee of the pick to loosen it 4t will form a ward and compact road Gravel which contains a small amount of fer- ruginous clay and has angular rough fragments of stone is the best that can be obtained Gravel mixed with sand or composed of smooth rounded frag ments of stone does not compact and form a hard smooth road surface aad is of little use except for general fill lug To get the best results from gravel which Is formed of various sized fragments it should be screened all pieces two inches in size being thrown to one side There are found In many places gravel deposits which contain few fragments over two Inches Such graV- el does not need to be screened but could 6e spread upon the road directly from the pit unless too sandy The two inch gravel is spread upon the roadbed to such a depth that when thtois spread the second course composed of tHe smaller gravel with fragments one Inch or less In sloe The second r 1 si i course Is treatedabuilarly to thetst derever depressions are noticed during th rolllnff materials should Immediately be spread upon such places and th rolling continued until the surface Is brought up to true grade The gravel should not be dry when rolled If fur thTYtop course should be about three Inches rollingIY road does not b come firm and hard until after a con sidercble time during which it needs constant attention Each year how ever the roadbed becomes firmer and ultimately nearly as solid as macadam HINTS FROM MISSOURI How to Use the King Drag and Hay an Ideal Road In issouri the roads are really bad and improvement by the King road drag has been taken up systematically The following suggestions are from n bulletin by the Missouri board of agriculture Dont drive too fast Dont walk Get on the drag and ride Dont wait for your neighbors to take fold They may be waiting on you Dont wait for the big grader t come and shape up your road All you can do first will help to make thee work of the grader permanent Dont try to drag with one piece us two One will scoop out the In the road and deepen them When two are used the one keeps the other up and soon the hollows will have filled and become level like the balance of the road Dont wait for good roads until the city folks begin to talk about macadam at public expense This will cost from 3000 to 5000 a mile and fo country purposes where there is n heavy hauling it Is no better than not as easily maintained as a road properly made with the drag Five dollar- a mile with a proper use of the roa drag w Ul keep the ordinary country road that Is properly drained graded and bridged or culverted in first class condition nine months in the year and make it a fairly decent road the other three months But this cannot be done in one year or two The longer the drag is used intelligently the better the road will become until finally it is oval and smooth and hard and elas tic This is the ideal road and not ing but a road properly made withth drag or an asphalt road meets all these requirements ROADeNew Jersey to Experiment With Mix ture of That Product With Dirt The New Jersey state department of highways is to construct in Mercer county an experimental mile of a ne automobile road the plans for whit aState Road Supervisor Robert A Mee erliar recently obtained in Kansas City Mr Meeker says the new method of construction simple and cheap that it is self healing when broken and therefore practically indestructible th It improves with age that it is mud less noiseless and almost dustless and that it Is not slippery even when coated with ice In the building of the road the nal soil Is finely pulverized and then into this there is worked a mixture of hot asphalt the whole mass being firm ly rolled in the finishing Breaks are quickly repaired by traffic the weight of wheels cementing them together The base yields slightly to heavy traffic and then regains its original shape It is equally good for horses and auto mobiles If the experiment proves a success it is likely that the result will be a radical change in the road building meth ods of the state of New Jersey wit the substitution of asphalt for the macadam process now used Million a Year For Roads Connecticut still leads in the good roads movement as a state She was the third to get into It New Jersey being the first four years before her and Massachusetts the second in 1893 Now Connecticut spends 1000000 a year while the flat spends but 4600 000 and the second but 100000 less than that Connecticut spends the largest amount per capita for good by far the only other states e total annual appropriations are larger being New York with 5000000 and Pennsylvania with 1500000 but both states are vastly larger than little Connecticut Bad Roads Indeed It Is no wonder that the grangers are speaking pieces In favor of better roads as the mud Is something formidable on the country roads At East Longmeadow t Mass ohe of the churches was closed on a recent Sun tap on account of the muddy condition of the roads says the Hartford Time A Hartford funeral party driving tp Cromwell found the roads impassable In some places rendering it necessary to take to the fields The milkmen and teamsters declare that they never sa the beat of it and the ckauffeur wh gets off the macadam Is entitled to a premium The Cheapest Roadmaker TheugQod roads without money movement that has by means of King F split log road drag converted the slough holes of the corn belt roads into model turnpikes is extending the eastern states where most roa are either
