APBIL 20, 1892. ?- TO TRAVEL IN AIB, AT THE MODEST SPEED OF THREE HUNDRED MILES AN HOUR. Mr. Loeber'A invention and the Remarkable Claims Made in Its fcehalf—A«- otlicr Addition to the Literature 01 Aerial Navigation. Charles G. Loeber, a lawyer of Union street, in this city, has invented a sys tem of aeriel navigation which he claim;will solve the question and permit vessels of any size and weight to go through the air with the greatest oi ease, safety and rapidity if constructed on his principle. His invention is based on his discovery of means which make the air unyielding to force and impact, and this unyielding state of the air he has named anthexis, from the Greek, meaning that which sustains force without yielding. It must not be inferred from the statement that Mr. Loeber is a lawyer that he has developed his system and perfected his invention without an acquired knowledge of its surroundings. He has given aeriel navigation his careful study for over a quarter of a century, and especially has studied the quality of the air or atmosphere, and one of his notable inventions is an air pump. This new invention has had as yet no practical test, because no machine for navigation has yet been constructed. The inventor claims, however, that he has satisfied himself of its correctness beyond a.doubt. He naively states that his position is the same as that of most inventors. He lacks the funds. Not that he is without means, but the amount needed to build a vessel of the proper size for conveyance would bo $30,000, and he Says that $50,000 is a large amount to some men. He also wants the privilege of control in the matter of construction, which means a great deal to capitalists. At the same time he is as hopeful and also as buoyant as his machine will be, according to' his statements, and believes that the opportunity will come for him to make, as he says, an epoch in history. When questioned as to the principle on which he works he said to a reporter: "If 1 were to detail to a thorough scientist, the strongest kind of a personal friend, in the strictest confidence, the principle 1 work upon, there would enter into his acceptance of it an element of doubt, because it is opposed to all the present ideas of aerial navigation. The air is a power substance, but its power is occult and made manifest only by the use of means. The balloon is the means to obtain -two opposite vertical air columns and the excess of tho lower over the upper air column; vacuous space in the pneumatic tube is the means to obtain the full pressure force of one air column, A third means which 1 have discovered brings forth anthexis. An" thesis is the foundation and embodiment of my invention of the air car. 1 can say no more than this at present." . The startling part of Mr. Loeber's proposition is that he proposes his air car shall be made of iron or steel to prevent fire; that its extreme length shall be 79 feet;mean breadth, 27 feet; height, 85 feet; length and breadth of wings, 40 and 27 feet; total wing area, 2,100 wjuare feet, and that it shall have a net carrying capacity of 000 tons. The minimum unyielding air support underneath the wings, he says, will be 1,188 tons and the areu of the machine will be 40 square feet. The means through which au- thexis are brought forth are constant, lie says, and the control of tho rudder absolute. Three hundred miles an hour speed, according to his statement, are as easily obtainable in the air as are thirty miles an hour on land. Tho normal height of the cur in tho air will bo above mountains, so as to keep it out' of tho zone of cyclones and an automatic register denoting the height of the car, coupled with a simple rule fixing the heights for the various cars, will make collisions practically impossible. This is comforting to know. That this invention, if curried out, will prac tically bring the millenium, Mr. Loeber does not hesitate to say. As illustrations of the feasibility of his plan and the existence of anthexis, he uses the vulture, which, when weighted with a load heavier than itself, is able to rise in tho air to any distance. Were not the air unyielding the bird would have no fulcrumage, and the air would slip by it. The bird does not obtain this by the exertion of force, as is shown by the motionless wings of tho eaglo poised in air. In the case of the laden vulture tho force needed would be a force equal the weight of tho vulture and its prey added to that needed for fulcrumage and its flying force, This would make flight impossible, he claims, unless nu- ture had provided a better means than simple force, und this, Mr. Loeber suys, he has discovered. When called upon to account for his discovery he claimed it was due to providential good fortune, added to many years of unremitting study expended on a subject as to which little or nothing wus already known, and all of which had to be elaborated by original conception and design. He says a trial of the test cur could be made in loss than six months, and then large cars could be built and air conveyance used us u regular method of transportation. Who knows but the aerial navigation and transportation company, carryin, passengers across all the continents and wastes of waters, without seasickness or the dangers of dying of indigestion through the diabolical railway station sandwich, may be a thing of the neiu future, wlu'le the men who doubt, us did those opposing ocean steamers and locomotive transportation, may have to recant as they did and be glutl to take a day off in the summer time for a cool evening in Siberia and return. All this is possible, according to Mr. Loeber, and his standing in thy community as u man of reason in other matters warrant some degree of faith in his sincerity and sense. Eagle, Coolnegs In a Mixed College. There is a coolness between the boys and the girls of the Stanford university. tt all came about from a question of propriety. The boys gave a ball in their dormitory hall on Monday night, to which they invited all the girl students, as well as the professors. Elaborate reparations were made, and the young men anticipated an evening of enjoyment. They hired a band, and had the dormitory beautifully decorated. One or two of the more modest and re- iiring of the inaidens in the girls' dormi- x>ry Were shocked at the avowed intension of some of the girls to attend the ball, and called a meeting of the girls, at which there was a long discussion of the affair. Many of the fair students said they could see no harm in going to the ball as long as the professors were willing, but ihe more prudish damsels read a strong lecture on the evils of such doings, and, on a vote, there was a majority in favoi of not attending the ball. So none of ;hetn went. The boys waited long for the coming of the fair ones, but they came not. At irst the collegians were very angry. Then they took the dancing floor themselves and made a "stag" party of it. They say, however, that for future festivities they, will send no invitations to the girl students. This suits the ultra- modest among the latter, but the sociable jirls feel crushed.—San Francisco Chronicle. A Tremendous Barley Farm. "We have now secured 250,000 acres of land in North Dakota for barley ! arms, and next spring we will send thousands of German emigrants to that state from Ohio, West Virginia' and Indiana," said Colom O. M. Towner as he discussed the future of this great northern state. Colonel Towner is manager of what is best known as the Barley syndicate of Chicago. During the last two or three months the company has succeeded in securing 250,000 acres of land in North Dakota, on which it is proposed to place German farmers to raise barley for malt purposes. These lands have been purchased in Nelson, Norman, Towner, Ramsey, Steele and Bottineaii counties. It is the opinion of the managers of this company that barley can be most successfully grown in that state, and they have the conviction of their belief sufficiently to purchase these lands and to send out emigrants from other states. The Germans are chosen on account of their knowledge of barley culture for this purpose. These emigrants will not be tenants, but owners of the land, it being sold to them on easy terms. The crops will be bought by the company and shipped t.o all points where there is a demand for barley.—St. Paul Pioneer Press. To Celebrate .tho Marseillaise. Another effort is being made by the inhabitants of Choisy-le-Roi, outside of Paris, to observe with much solemnity and ceremonial what is vaguely called the "Centenary of the Marseillaise." Choisy-le-Roi claims to possess the dust of Rouget de 1'Isle—the composer of the hymn—who was buried thers in 1830, his birthplace being' Lons-le-Saiilnier, in the department of the Jura. On this account the members of the borough council consider that they have the right to take the initiative in organizing a RigW Republican festival this year, as the Mar- seillase, under the title of "Chant de Guerre de 1'Armee du Rhin," was firsl heard in 1792. President Carnot is to be asl;ed to become honorary president of tho committee of the fete, and appeals for funds will be made to all the cities, and also to communes which possess wore than 4,000 inhabitants. No date AS yet has been fixed for the celebration of the centenary, to which it is presumed thai every patriotic Frenchman will give his sentimental and sympathetic—if no' practical and pecuniary—support.— Paris Cor. London Telegraph A Much Traveled Volume. In opening a package of books wrapped in tin, the custom house inspectors en with a knife the binding, by Ruban, of "Poor Richard Almanack " The impor er made no claim for f .mage from th government, paid the Jnty, returned th book to Paris to be rebound and wrot an ode to Diana of Poitiers, go'ddess book lovers, in gratitude for the miracu lous escape of the text of his Almanack. The book, rebound, came back fifteen days ago, The owner supposes that it is intact, but he does not know, and to cannot learn even by paying the dutj again, for the official wants a new in voice, and the importer is naive enougl to think that he can persuade the official that the first invoice, which is filed a the custom house, accurately describee the book on its fourth voyage across the Atlantic.—New York Times. A UusHo-Chlnesc Railway, A Russo-Chineso railway is reported as the objective point of negotiation! now going on between Russian and Chinese representatives. Russia wants the right to build a railway from Yladi vostock, the Pacific terminal of the pro posed Siberian railway, across the north era boundary of Corea toTien-Tsin, am thence to Shanghai. The alleged ob ject is quick transit of Chinese tea ant silk to Europe, The Chinese, however are very jealous of Russian influence in the east, and will probably decline Russian aid in railway building.—En giueering News. Dr. John Piente, the amateur telescope maker, is now finishing a SOJ inch silver on glass mirror for Alleghany college which, when mounted, will give that in stitution the largest reflecting telescope in this country. An immense flume is being construct ed near Fresno, Cal., which will not only furnish water for irrigating purposes, but will bo used to transport lunv ber needed by farmers living near by. It is pretty hard to be told at the beginning^ a long, cbld winter that gold table serv$pes are coming in.

When ttie venerable Steve Bugles railed oft his storm defier and touched up with a parlor Jaatch a goodly pinch of old Virginia natural leaf, he was only a moment sending more than a loud winding among his neighbors in the Grand Pacific corridor, Steve had come in from Denver a few hours be- x>re and had been in the city just about ong enough to not care a blank whether he saw anything, anybody or anywhere. "Yon can bet that I'll show some of iiese tenderfeet, if they tackle me, that Fin the biggest glizzly this side of the peak," and Steve gyrated and described a few .circles with • his feet. 'Nary jump in the road are any of these lere umbrella swingin. dudes goin ter i step up next- ter me, fer right sudden ;here's goin ter be er row.. Now, there cain't anybody realize any better than J: kin that Chercawgo is ther city of ther only World's fair, but let me tell you, ] pardner, some of these young ducks what! ';hinks they'se got an immortal cinch on ;ho universe is goin ter get into a hull lot of trouble if they fools with this old cormorant from away out west." Old Steve took an extra' puff on his well seasoned black brier and settled into a reminiscent mood. He had taken part in many of the early incidents of the border days, and when , he was inclined could tell many interesting tales. "Why, young fellow, 'way back in 1840 I was one of the first of the boys to tackle the pony express business. It didn't take much nerve the way nerve weighs nowadays, but when you come to look at it in them ,days a fellow had to take all the chances of a lifetime, and it was a kinder ticklish job to tackle a horseback ride across the Injun country alone. L would start out from St. Jo, pony on the gallop from the second I put ,my hand on the saddle horn, and ther wan't no let up ; on that jump till I landed in Denver.. Right through the redskin country then,'and now when you can look at 'em livin ' quiet down in Florida or occasionally ;kickin over the traces up north, they ain't a marker to what we had to deal with in thet. country them days. It was likely to be a run- nin fight from start ter finish, and I am only sorry thet.yer didn't live ter write erbout thet old time from actual experience." "Tell me something about the pony express." . "Well, of course it's an old story about how she was started and run until the stages'and railroads knocked the business out. But in the early days of that gallopin mail arrangement a feller got all the excitement he wanted every trip. You know we wasn't supposed to lose a second's time along the road, and mahy's the time I've ridden a quarter or half a mile on the dead run with the saddle cinches undone completely, so's the minute I got,'longside my change pony I'd lose no time transferring my saddle. - • • '. "Fer a long time we .didn't know whether er not'we was goin to find any transfer still runriin fer our benefit, fer the ponies was good ones and the Injuns didn't care much fer a man er two when they was after bosses.' Several times,1 struck a deserted transfer Station, saw the poor fellers lyin there with the top of their head gone, but I had to move on, as 1 had a tired pony and couldn't lose time getting to the next station to change." "Did you ever have any personal encounters with tho Indians, Mr. Rugles?" "You bet, but don't call me Mr. Rugles; plain old Steve. Yes, I've heard the whizz of the arrer and hum of the bullet, have gone at a dead run with the bridle reins between my teeth, both hands busy with two six shooters, and have been plugged three times. That's the narrowest escape I ever had," and the veteran pushed back his gray hair and exhibited a scar that extended across the side of the head on a level with the left temple. "It was getting along toward night, and about the time the pony began to act kinder queer 1 commenced to realize that Injuns was sornewheres close. Sure enough, the first thing I knew, a gang of "em comes gallopin from some timber a short ways off, yellin and shootin. .Pony and me went fer all we was worth, and then I remember holdin onto the saddle- horn and all grew suddenly dark. A heavy jolting woke me up, and I found that my saddle had saved my scalp. Wounded and stunned, I had never lost my horse sense, yer might say, and ] Lad hung on all the time." At this junction one of Steve's early friends came up, everybody went up and "smiled," and Steve promised to talk more some other time.—Chicago News. A New AVord. The catalogiie of the National Lecture bureau of New York introduces a new word into print. This bureau is under the management of Mr. and Mrs. C, C, Haskell, who are equal partners. The firm is announced as Medame Huskell & Haskell. Miss Elizabeth U. Gates, already well known as a lecturer, ia the author of this significant and expressive title. It will doubtless come into general use as the new order of things makes a term simplifying the business partnership of men and women necessary, and this would apply equally well to such persons, married or single. —Clara M.

While the subject of new roads is being agitated by the legislatures and the agricultural journals, the farmers are busy working iip the subject in & practical—though possibly not in the most proper—way by industriously, and at much expense of time and team, cutting up and destroying the roads by driving heavily loaded, narrow tired wagons ovet them. When we see a taan on a heavily loaded, narrow tired wagon urging along his jaded team, engaged to hifl utmost power in making mud, and then grumbling because of the "horrid inuddy roads, he seems to be an object for pity. The only thing he seems disposed to do to make matters different is to throw some .hard• words into the muddiest places, and then.continue his custom of turning out on to the highway with his rut digger every time, the ground is too wet for plowing. Now, if the legislature, is to do anything for the roads, let them begin by legislating the narrow tires off the heavy lumber and truck wagons. I have seen a single heavy, narrow tired wagon in the distance of a half mile cause more damage than could be repaired in six days of ordinary road work. ..:..-.'•• The question seems to be about this: : Which is the; betters economy, wide tires and good roads or narrow tires and bad roads? The narrow tires ; are as much out of place on the farm as on the highway, Men admit that facts and philosophy are in favor of wide tires, and say that when all the others use wide tires .they will do so. They seem to be afraid th&t they will do more than their proportionate share of good in'this world. It seems that the legislature may have to help them out of their ruts, —Coleman's Rural World. ; THE Tommy Picked the Police ChleFa Pocket. ; In : Madison, Wis.,- a chief ol police, J. E.-Adamson, who is clubbing himself. Saturday he visited Chicago to get Thomas Kingston, aged fourteen, .who was wanted at Madison for larceny. He: had been arrested by Chicago officers. .. Late in the evening he handcuffed himself to young Kingston and started for the train. 'Before it reached Desplaiues the chief was snoring loud and long. • -• '• . Kingston is a cunning little rascal. He saw his opportunity. He quietly went through the pockets of the sleeping chief and found the key which unlocked his handcuff.- Stealthily he crept over the snoring officer, and when the train stopped '. at Desplaines the chief and his youthful prisoner parted company. :-• The train had gone a good many miles when Chief Adamson awoke. Of course he was mad, but when he looked for the key with which to remove the handcuff from his own wrist his wrath knew no bounds, for Tommy had taken it with him. All efforts to remove the bracelet were fruitless, and until he reached Madison his left hand and wrist were.buried deep in his,overcoat pocket. They were "out of sight." Kingston was picked up, by Chicago officers. He is at the Desplaines street station waiting for another bout with Chief Adamson.—Chicago Tribune. . A Short tlved Lake. "A month hence," says a California engineer of reputation, "theSalton lake will have dried up." . Salton lake, it will be remembered, is the shallow inland sea which was formed by a break in the Colorado river, whose waters in modern times, at least, flowed into the Gulf .of California, as we know it. The basin of the short lived lake, however, was once a part of the gulf, and if the flow of water had continued some modern improvements might indeed have been effected., The river will not boom again till spring, when the lake may refill. Any device that could render it permanent would have a mitigating effect upon the dreaded Arizona climate, of which dire stories are told. Worse things could happen than the tapping of the Colorado river higher up, so that all its waters might flow into the old channels and make the wilderness blossom with the rose.—New York Commercial Advertiser, Soldered Bis Eye. A Bangor (Me.) plumber couldn't open his eye the other day because the upper and lower Kds were held together by a drop of solder. The accident happened while'he was using some solder in a gutter in wnioh there was a little water. The moment that he applied the melted metal it snapped and flew, One piece of it came directly for his eye. The Kds closed involuntarily the moment of contact and the solder rested upon the lashes; it soldered the lids together so firmly that it was impossible to move th'em. The eye was not injured in the slightest, but was effectually closed. The .victim was half amused at the ridiculous side of the affair. A companion took him to a doctor, who severed the lashes.—Boston Herald. Wouldn't Take the Preacher's Wealth. As the Rev. W. P. Poor, pastor of the Lutheran church of Tribes Hill, WUH driving near the residence of Joseph Clark, on the West Amsterdam road, he was held up by two highwaymen, who, at the point of the revolver, demanded his money or his life. On discovering that their intended victim was a minister of the Gospel he was allowed to drive on and retain his valuables, and the highwaymen took to the fields.—Cor Utica Herald and Gazette.

I sought tho new, unknown to meet. And f onnd a gay and favored 'street Where fashion walked with flitting feet; ' And aa I watched, a golden gleam Pierced swiftly; through tho summer *lr And darted o'er'the human stream; Then nestled 'midst some dusky hair. 1 gazed upon the hair's dark grace, Tho tender frame to woman's face, That pictured all its charms so sweet. Then na I looked I met her eyes, Deep as the blue of southern skies. And from them glanced a baby smile My own poor treasure to beguile; Through every vein, throughout my frame There swept a dry, an ardent flame, : Love's passion! . Twos in the time of Love's defeat, I wandered through a bu«y street, And paced to where f our Srossways meet: And as I gazed, the thronging crowd Pressed onward, without reck or heed, With hasty feet, too anxious browed To cast a glance upon my neod. The chill neglect, the biting bloat That o'er my heart as ice wind passed, And turned to bitter all the sweet. Brought from its frozen realms a gift, The love of self, a careful thrift To guard its treasure and to guide The current of its burning tide . Through every vein, through every pore.

I wandered for a dim retreat, I found a quiet moss frown street, And trod its length \vllii tired fc;t; And as I passed, 11 door 11 kept- And battered wlth'tho strifuof years Unclosed, and forth a figure stepped And met me with a face of tears. A flgure that had beauty's mien, A f ace that in a mood uarene, Uhmarred ; by grief, had been more sweet Than aught that painter's art had traced, Or chiseled marble, coldly graced. And as I gazed with anxious will There came a glow, a silent thrill Through every vein, through every part. The swift borne message to my heart, Life's mission! —H. Boyd Carpenter in Good Words. Blunders of the Teaohorb. A. friend, himself for many years a teacher, writes: ''The blunders of teach ers of English literature are sometime more amazing than any that are told o their pupils. I heard the other day of a woman at the west who, when a clas was reading Tennyson's 'Day Dream, explained to them that the happy prin cess, in following her lover 'deep int the dying day,'went to America! The laureate would be tickled to know o this. A year or more ago there was a discussion in a leading educational jour nal as to the persons meant in Longfel low's lines 'To the Eiver Charles, 1 where he says: "More than this—thy name reminds me Of three friends, all true and tried, etc, "One writer suggested that they wen Professor Cornelius C. Fulton, Nathanie Hawthorne and Charles Sumner. An* other thought that Louis Agassiz's name should stand in the place of Hawthorne's, and this was finally accepted by all concerned. Neither the editor nor any of his correspondents or readers ap peared to see the absurdity of making the name of the river suggest friendf whose names were other than Charles. —Critic. . '' Muking the Right Shade. Those who have sought in vain for laces to match tho color of silk on lamp shades and other decorative articles may be able to produce the right shade by using some of the French tapestry dyes. One should experiment on a bit of luce, first to see if the dyes are properly thinned, so as to get the desired shade. Any of the thin laces in silk or cotton take the dyes nicely, Point d'Esprit and German Valenciennes looking very well when treated with the yellow shades, In the Valenciennes several delicate tints may be used on the light and the heavy part of the lace, bringing out the design with excellent effect. Ir» preparing lace for the dye, brush and press it carefully then stretch it upon a board, laying several thicknesses of puper underneath Dip a small bristle brush in the dye and lay it em freely.
