The Syracuse Carpenter and His Perpetual-Motion -Machine That " I AH Right" REVEALED TO HIH IN SLEEP. Oecrf BMr drafts a Bill' to Mike Kor Effective tha En--or cement ot Labor Laws. Think of tt! Here Is a man who claims C secret ha been reveakd to him for which the world baa labored In vain tor cisurl. And m i dream, too ht secret te oo leas . jJusl.' perpetual motion. Mans a man baa solved that problem only to -wake up and And hia solution was faulty. Machine havs been devised that will run a long time ot 'ftedr own coord, tut they have been mora toy. without commercial value because their power was sufficient only for themselves; When will 1hi dreamer awake to bitter disappointment'! If he has anything at all. probably ,01s awakening will come when be trie to make practical ap-plication of hit dreamland discovery. Thia man la S- 8. Roger, a carpenter of Syracuse. As tba pa pen have announced, be haa made a machine which goes and heepe going, apparently, without requiring any outside power to start tt- or propel tt. He can regulate Its speed and and control tt as easily as any machine run by steam. He does not know from actual experience how : perpettt&l ib. Mtisfe4v'jHi lesraft hia maohlna will run until it Is woraout He has kept tt running for three dty and nights without stopping,., and there is no apparent" reason wny oaya ana nurjita tn-numerabl could not be added to tha number. The most striking feature of the machine Is Its simplicity. It la onftnicted In a manner that would not puzzle any person accustomed to me use ot carpenters' tool.' For thia reason' the public cannot laarn'" at present the' details of the ' Invention. Mr.' Rogers te a carpenter who has worked hard. Ha has ne'er posed a an Inventor and says he ha never worted his brains about perpetual motion. Nor dof'S he believe In dream as being made of any real stuff, but the fact remains that his Invention la tha remit of a dream. It was about at wh ago - that Mr. Rogers bad the vision. He awoke, called his wife and told her that be had dtocov-ered nerpetual motion. ;He had only rei reived the "Idea" In a general" way," Vat' his wife laughed at It Mr. Rog?r toon fell aaleep again and dreamed about the machine In detail. He Is always an early riser, getting up at o'clock In the morning. That morning, however., he failed to awaka until J o'clock, sanjothing unknown- before in hia long career, for he is fairly well advanced in year. The vision waa so dear that tha dreamer wtu abio to sw every part of the machine. Ha made his conMruction according M ho in It, and the result to supposed to be perpetual motion. Then the Legislature assembles on Jan uary 6th, a hill drawn by George Blair for the more effectivt enforcement of labor laws will be presented.

DAUDET - AMD HEM SON THE -NOVELISTS KINDNESS OF HRVRT. Alphoose Daudet's exidden death on Thurs day took awsy the beat-liked of oantem. ponry French novelists. The affection for him wt due to bis personal character, as BMrt as to his books. Zola la widely read but one thinks of Zola as of a morose, crabbed gladiator, fighting against a fate not wholly undeserved. Daudet, on the con trary, was always the eustny-hcarted Pro- vencal, with a nature as innocent and as weet as a child'. If any one unacquainted with Daudet were to ask where to begin reading him, the Letters from My Mill" is the book which would be rsoommended, fcr it Is the one which give the best idea of his great var iety, hia tenderness and, his delicacy of style, Henry James-says -of him:-. "It Is difll cult to give an idea, by any genera! .-terms, of Daudet'e style - atyle - which defies ronventkm, tradition, homogeneity, pre aeace, and sometimes evco synsax, gathers up every patch of color, every eoloquial note that will help to illustrate and moves eager ly, lightly, triumphantly along, tike clever woman in the costume of an eclectic age.". - J Daudet's widow. It is mtereetlng now to reoall, is heraelf a literary . woman. He married her in 1867, at which time the had already published a volume of verse. In JSC7 it would have been difficult to And in the whole of Paris a more eoafirmed and hardened Bohemian than the creator of Tartarln. He had often declared that If ever be married and no doubt he put a sneering empbeala on the "if" he would take good care sot to choose a wife with any literary aspiration. 1 But sometimes, the best-laid aohemes of men and mice very often come to nothing. Mme. " Daudet -has one eon Leon, who has already mad his mark in the world of literature. It is an opes secret that Mme, Daudet haa helped her husband la many of hia novels. - aw. Some stories of Daudet were told recently by a contributor of the Bookman. One waa as follows: "One morning- last month, as I buret In on him, he waa fumbling over some books and papers pa hie desk, and waa ,dy aa ptektd up a little volume at hia right hand, and said; ,Do you aee thaK,Now,.'U tel roa what it Is. It waa sent to roe by the author. Who he Is I haven't the slightest idem. But see; the text Is only printed I " "i ncu pmgB, o loai lucres I ,k- t , .1 V , . . . each able of the type. I -use it for writing memoranda. Look how I've written data all over lta leaveevery convenient I m K every day for my notes. I call that book a practical example of the aesthetic Spirit', ... , . ...... ri-u:.. ..- ! 'But the poor authorr :I hiirted. -" 'Oh, as for the author, why,, I have written him thanking hia for thinking of me, and told turn that his book is always on my desk It never quits my sight!' " Another "btory Is as fc!loa: "Let your fancy witness the following lrttle afne I wnico nappeneu one ounoar morning ween In. V. Daudet eyed the signature and skirmished over lta contents, tnumbllngiy quoting the phraata: My misery is about ta end' "At last hope gilds the future' 'I need but five franca.' : "M, Daudet turned to us. saying Uh! If we could, be sure that his story 1 true!' He altpped a five-franc piece in an envelope, sealed tt (remark the -tender charm of tho act!) and sent It oat" The Interest in Daudet has led to tha preparation at the Public Library of a reading Itot of Daudet's work and of matter concerning hkn, which, Interested inquirers will find helpful.
