Washington, D. C., July 3.--The possibility of a, inns-Atlantic ocean flight In a hcavler-than-alr machine In thirteen hours Is pointed out In a communication to the National Geographic society, at Washington, D. C., £rom Dr. Alexander Graham Bell, Inventor of the telephone and former president of the society. "The distance from Newfoundland to Ireland Is less than 2,000 miles," Bays Dr. Sell. "This means that If you go at 100 miles an hour you will cross the Atlantic in 20 hours--less than a day. We have flying machines that go at a greater speed than that. We already have machines that could cross the ocean If their engines can keep going for 20 hours. Of course, these are ex- ceptiona.1 machines; but even the ordinary machines of today make 50 miles an hour with ease. "Now. a flying machine flies faster as you go higher up. because the rarer air offers less resistance to the motion. while the propeller gives the same push with the same power, whatever the elevation. As you get into the rarer air the propeller spins eround faster. A 50 mile an hour machine flying two miles high In the air--and we have machines that have gone twice as high as that--will fly much faster than 50 miles an hour. Then at an elevation of two miles high In the air there is a Constant wind blowing In the general direction of Europe n n v l n g s velocity nnywhere from 25 to 50 miles an hour. -MEANS SREAT SPEED. them can be little doubt that any ordinary machine that is able to support Itself In the air at an elevation of two miles high will attain a speed of at least 100 miles ari hour In the direction ot Europe, and that means going from America to Europe In a single day. Calculation shows that, taking all these circumstanceo Into consideration, our best machines should be ahle to cross the Atlantic in 13 hours. I hardly dare say it aloud for publication. It IB sufficiently startling to know that it is not only possible, but probable, that the passage may be made In a single day. But, If as I Imagine, it can be done in 13 hours, you mny take an early breakfast In Newfoundland and a late dinner in Ireland tha night." Arthur Man Hurt by Drouth --Sells 300 Queen*.

Glngertch, » well to do Amlshman, living near here, who has an apiary ot almost 150 col- onlet of bees, reports that the dry weather of the pact two months was very much against his business.

Usually there is a vast difference. When we opened this store we decided to BUILD, because we wanted a permanent success.
