Otto Koerinecke, German Jong distance aviator, hopped off this I morning on the second leg of his | flight from Cologne, Germany, to | America by the eastern route. His immediate goal is Basra, Irak, at the head of the Persian gulf. He hoped to cover the 1050 miles by this evening. The weather at the time of the takeoff takeoff was calm. FREE WOMAN Mount Vernon, Ills., Sept. 24 < APi.—In answer to her tearful plea, i “give me death or send me back to j my children,” Mrs. Elsie Sweetin was i acquitted today at her second trial ; for the poison murder of her hus- j j band, Wilford, 4hree years ago. The ! jury deliberated less than 30 min- I utes. Col. Lindbergh’s name has become become a universal by word. It is not any longer an American appelation, it is now a possession possession of humankind. Columbus trailed the transcontinehtal way for the leviathans of the sea; Lindbergh trailed the transcontinental transcontinental way for the modern archaeopterixes of the air; both of them shortened distances, and distance shortened is life enlarged. enlarged. Lindbergh’s character is now become a symbol of the silent constructive qualities of thought and feeling, the qualities applied applied to conquer nature by rolling rolling back fears and pushing limitations outwardly. Lidbergh’s name is a song for his country and a sonorous echo for the friends of his country; yet, the man and his country are seemingly diluted in the glory of the fact, in the glory of the triumph. His prowess prowess becomes a gem of admiration admiration set on the mind of the ambitious ambitious thinker; a radiating sun set on the heart of the energetic accomplisher; a spiritual lesson for all workers set as a example on the pages of history concerning concerning the possibilities of the individual individual when endowed with the strength of science and thqCon­ viction of success; yes indltd, a spiritual lesson, because the conditions conditions of the superb flight showed forth, illustrated, exemplified exemplified the dominion that man holds over the resistance of the material environment. It is a question whether Lindbergh Lindbergh was braver than wise, or wiser than brave. The solving of the riddle is this: his ability was his confidence, his intelligence intelligence was his fearlessness; in the forever fact of life, light and warmth are one, as true valour and wisdom are the same. Mexico takes pride in the scientific achievements of its friends. Why? Becaust it is hut perfectly right. Moreover, by reason of such attitude and recognition, the affections of nations are intertwined, the family ties of humanity grow stronger; and the sentiments of international brotherhood alight dove-like on the soul of those who sigh for the angelic chorus of “Glory to God on the highest, peace on earth, good will to man.” The citizens of Juarez extend a most hearty welcome to the hero of the solemn 33 hour immortal immortal flight; the youth and schol children of our city would have him visit this little corner of our fatherland, the fatherland which if great for her sufferings, sufferings, is even greater for her ideals of justice and liberty; all of us would he delighted if we could enjoy the privilege of paying on our national soil the homage due to the magnificent aviator, his genius and virtue.

In all the broad heavens his plane was the best; And save his good courage, lie armour had none, He flew unafraid and he flew all alone. So fearless in air and so modest in mien. There never was hero like “Lindy,” I ween. He stayed not for wind and he stayed not for rain. But from far California he steered his good plane; From west coast to east coast o’er high land and low He w'inged his swift flight, nor fear did he know— This dauntless young hero w’ho loved the free air. And in order to woo her was willing to dare. And soon he alighted but was off with the dawn, He cared not to linger—was glad to be gone. “From New York to Paris,” ah, that was his goal. And it took a stout heart and it took a calm soul, But “Lindy” had both and was fearless of death. So the whole world awaited with hushed, baited breath, While into the darkness in lightning-like race Through regions unchartered he hurtled in space. O’er leagues of deep ocean, through sleet and through mist. In solitude awful he sped to hi:> tryst, I ill from Le Bourget there arose a glad cry, For “Lindy” had conquered both water and sky. And never a hero such honor was shown. For he did the deed first and he did it alone. Col. Charles A.
