AERIAL CRAFT AT WILL Mark O Anthony New York Electrical Engineer Seated at Keyboard Sends Balloon Through All Sorts of Evolutions New York Demonstration of one of the greatest achievements thus far reported in aerial locomotion waf given the other day when Mark 0 Anthony a New York electrical engineer sent a small dirigible balloon scudding about through the air by means of transmitted power making it perform all sorts of evolutions aIil having the air craft at all times under perfect control By actual performance he demon strated for the first time that the long sought for secret rf propellingairships by wireless elect icity has been dis coveredSitting at a small electrical key board such as is used in sending wireless messages the inventor ticked off various combinations of dots and dashes each combination causing the balloon to perform some particular movementSometimes the operator placed his instrument directly under the balloon and again would remove it 200 fee away Distance had no effect on the control and the response of the mech anism which was operated by pro pellers was prompt and effective With this small apparatus he said I could control the balloon At a distance of 12 or 15 miles and witl a more powerful apparatus the con trol could be extended to almost any distanceThe exhibition was given in Lee Stevens balloon house in Hoboken r structure 600 or 700 feet in length and with sufficient head room to allow a satisfactory test of the wireless dirigibleThe consists of an ordinar cigarshaped gas bag 22 feet in lengtl Beneathtype of framework used in all dirigi bles except that all of the raechanisir is operated by wireless electricity in stead of by a gasoline motor con trolled by an operator sitting beside it In the ordinary dirigible ballooi the two mechanical devices which con trol it are a propeller which sends it forward and a rudder which governs its course In Mr Anthonys invention other devices are added Besides the propeller and a second propeller directlybeneatl- the center of Vie frame which oper ates vertically and lifts or lowers the airship at the will of the operator He also has added a mechanical device which at the call of a few dots ant dashes releases a clutch which drops- a small weight representing a charge of dynamite to be used in warfare During a two hours trial the in ventor sat at his keyboard in one end of the building and caused the balloon to move hither and thither and up and down as the spectators dictated Mr Anthony in explaining his in vention saidliThe dots and dashes have an effect on the mechanisn through the medium of a selector and the selector controls the movement of the mechanism at the will of the operator This selector operates the electrically controlled valves of the com pressed air engines which give the de sired motion forward or backward 01 cutting off the supply of energy as the operator desires The engine Is go constructed that the amount of air consumed after pass ing throughThe reducing valve it small compared with any motor now on the market By using compressed air motors I do away with gas 01 other motors now in common use and get rid of the danger from heat anr spark In the model small batteries are used to operate the electric motors whereas In the larger machine compressed air tanks will be used in place of batteries for motive power The secret of the apparatus is in the sending and receiving of the Hertzian wave BEWAILS DRAGON RIDE OF RULER Curious Proclamation Is Issued by New Chinese Emperor WashingtonOur late empero ruled the empire for

QUtKEPROOF HOUSE SCIENTIST CLAIMS DEVICE WILL WITHSTAND SHOCKS r Would Set Buildings on Steel Pivot Making Them Independent of Un reliable GroundSpring Buf fers Prevent Collapse Berlin Prof Eugene Bormell the noted German sculptor has patented an invention for building houses which can withstand earthquake shocks fcrof Bormell maintains that it Is quite possible to build cities where the severest possible earthquake shock would cause no loss of life at all or only a small loss of life in comparison with that incurred in the recent ter rible disasters at San Francisco and Messina Explaining his new method Prof Bormell says Houses which can successfully withstand earthquake shocks can only be built by a radical departure from the recognized methods of architecture If the soil of any town be treacherous or should its capacity for resistance to earthquakes be insuffi cient then I maintain that the foundations of buildings must be rendered independent of the unreliable ground in which they stand Prof Bormell overcomes this Initial difficulty by resting the entire house together with its foundation on a cen tral steel pivot The whole house together with a steel foundation of enor mous weight rests on this central pivot The house and Its foundation are separated from the surrounding ground by a space which gradually widens from the pivot at the extreme base to the level of surface Each house thus forms a little Is land except that there is no surround spacemusthouse to be approached The frame of the house must be of steel When the earthquake shock occurs the whole steel structure including the founda tions sways on the central pivot a the extreme base In thus swaying however there would still be shock caused by the spherical steel founda tion striking the earth on either side at each swing and to meet this dan ger Prof Bormell provides for eigh- spring buffers whose action would b similar to the buffers between rail way cars These buffers would only come into action when the hous shakes violently and would mitigat- the effects of the shock The building is In a normal condition not connected with the ground except by the steel pivot and in case of shock additional connections are established by the eight spring buffers Prof Bormell has received inquiries from Italy regarding the possibility o applying his plan to the reconstruction of Messina

treasure in 1850 has sailed again for the South seas in hopes to recover the spoils taken from the Spanish freebooters by Capt Smith of the schooner Black Witch which sailed from Salem Mass in 1820 Venturesome treasure seekers have often sought the rich plunder but all that has ever resulted has been countless romances of the seaCapt Brown said before he sailed that the reason for the failures was that the party which he accompanied in 1850 removed the treasure from the Cocos to another island of the South Pacific In the expedition of 1850 Brown sailed with Capt Henry Smith son of the doughty seafarer who took from the Spanish ships their treasure According to the captain the treas ure was found and 1000000 was removed to Australia after the schooner had broken up and all of the crew except the captain the steward and himself had perished The remaining 59000000 was buried on another island Before this country was reached the captain and steward died therefore he is the only man who knows the whereabouts of the treas ureCapt Brown left this port on the Mariposa He plans to outfit a small steamer when he reaches the group of Islands where the treasure is buried His family

Fortnightly Literary Club Monday afternoon Mrs Gar nett said in part- Ancestors of Washington- It will not be out of place to speak of the ancestors and the families con nected with the name of Washington John Washington the grandfather came from England and settled in Virginia in 1657 His son Augustine married the lovely Miss Daudridge who died early leaving two sons Lawrence and Augustine later he married Miss JMrv Ball from a neighboring plantation She was called the belle of the Northern Neck the name given to that part of the country The bridal trip extended from the home of the bride to that of the bridegroom on Popes Creek the house of one story contained four rooms and a large entrance hall The situation was beautiful resembling an old English county seat It was here that George Washington was born February 22nd 1732 Consulted Old Book I had access to an old book pub lished in 1856 and written by a former rector of Mount Vernon parish very little was said about the mother of our George but everything of the father One would suppose that in those days the fathers exerteda greater influence in molding the characters of their children A more modern work spoke only of the moth er and the power she wielded over the life of the little George and the fath er was not mentioned at all The first work is not considered authentic now it was at one time it professed to relate many incidents and tales told by relatives friends and visitors of the Washington family The Cherry Tree Story Tile Washingtons were God fearing people and exercised a watchfulcare over their children in little things such as kindness to every one even dumbanimals truthfulness unselfishness obedience and bravery In speaking of truthfulness the oldwork by the rector gives the story of the little hatchet and the cherry tree now considered a myth but for many years accepted as Gospel truth and generations of school boys and girls owe their love for truth to this harm less story which is no longer true Lost Father at 10 Years When George was ten years old he lost his father an irreparable loss About five years after his fathers death George left school for ever He was born to be a soldier While at school during play time he would divide his playmates into two parties or armies one the French the other the Americans George would com mand the latter then with corn stalks for muskets calabashes for drums the two armies would turn out and march and counter march file off or fight their mimic battles with great furyLawrence Washington the step brother married a Miss Fairfax sister of William Fairfax one of the Governors council and through him George was introduced to Lord Fair fax who engaged him as his surveyor Lord Fairfax owned an immense tract of land between the Potomac and the Allegheny He served in this capac ity of surveyor until his twentieth year Shows His Prowess While acting as surveyor for Lord Fairfax in the backwoods he boarded with a widow named Stinson who had seven sons In front of the house was a green and here in the evening George and the Stinson boys would see which was the best man at running jumping andwrestling Little did they know they were train ing for a great cause Twenty years after when George Washington lead the American armies he did not forget his boy friends one of them a brave man became a Colonel They always spoke of Washington as brother George Washington as a boy or young man or a General inspired only love and esteem in those he met this was his characteristic First War Experience It was in his fifteenth year that George Washington felt the first kindlings in his soul for war When the people in Virginia heard that France and Spain threatened En gland their mother country they were ready to offer themselves and George Washington offered the strengthof his young arm The whole country west of the Blue Mountains was one immeasurable forest where no foot had ever trod arid no voice had ever broken its aw fuljsilenqe And yet without hesitation Washington offered his ser vice Accompanied by an interpreter and several servants he set put in winter Washington kept a journal of his travels and upon his return very much against his wishes this was printed and copies sent to En gland thus Major Washington introduced not only at home wasI Ring henceforth they would nor would they ever forget him John Dandridge of Virginia was a welltodo planter his daughter Martha was a noted beauty When only seventeen she married Colonel Daniel Park Curtis and during the seven years of their married life Mrs Curtis was a leader in the best society of Vorginia the summers were spent at Arlington the winters in Williamsburg Her husbands father was one of the richest men in the Southand at his death the immense estate descended to his son Martha Curtis was left a widow at twenty four and one of the richest women in all the colonies Two years after her husbands death she met Wash ington Mr Chamberlayne persauded Washington to go home with him and promised to introduce him to a young and charming widow They were married in 1759 Washington resigned his commission and settled at Mount Vernon and here fifteen beau tiful years were passed but the call of his country made him forsake ease and pleasure He suffered privations with his army when at home there was plenty Resents Contributions During the war while he was with the army in the North a British fri gate camp up the Potomac to Mount Vernon and threatened to lay the place in ashes if provisions were not instantly on board To save that venerable mansion the manager sent aboard the requisite supplies Or hearing of the matter Washington wrote to his manager SirIt gives me extreme concern to hear that you furnished the enemy withrefreshments It would have been a less painful circumstance to me to have heard that in consequence of your noncompliance with their request they had laid my plantation in ruinsGeorge Washington- In 1785 the Assembly of Virginia wishing to show their love and es teem presented to Washington fifty shares in the Potomac and one hun dred shares in the James River Nav igation Companies making a sum of ten thousand pounds Sterling Washington begged to be excused for not receiving the gift for himself and asked to be permitted to use their gift for objects ofa public nature He gave the one hundred shares to a college at Lexington Va and the name was changed to Washington college After the Civil War Gen Robert E Lee was made its president and in 1870 the name was changed to the present name Washington and Lee University What could be more appropriate I doubt not that as long as we are the American people we will continue to honor him who was first in war first in peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen 25 is offered to the person who suggests an appropriate name for a perfume now being demonstrated at Phillips Drug Store It costs noth ing to try Drop in and they
