Aaron Steele was brought before i
the court on a charge of desertion
and non-support preferred by
his wife, Emma Steele. Defendant
claimed that his failure to provide
for his family was because he
could not get work at his trade,
that of a wagon-maker. That the
automobile had ruined his business
entirely. But it also developed
that the most of the money he did
earn went for strong drink. Mrs.
Steele stated that she did not wish to
see her husband punished and if he
would stay at home and do what he
could toward the support of his
family she would be satisfied. Mr
Steele promised to do so and he
was discharged upon payment of
the costs.
Boyd Martin, of Bellefonte, was
brought before the court for failure
to comply with a court order to 1]

' his wife. He maintained that the
amount is more than he can pay.
Judge Fleming told him if such is
foe case he should go about it in a
egal way by issuing an order on his
‘wife to show cause why the order
should not be reduced, but in the
“meantime he will have to pay the
$40 per month.

support of his wife, Mary Hicks,

pot for a number of his wife's rela-
“tives. which hadbeen the cause of
their rupture. An effort was made to
‘bring about a reconciliation and ad-
_justment of their marital troubles
but the wife refused to accede. The
court then made an order against
“Mr. dicks for the payment of $20
‘a month toward the support of his
children and gave the wife nothing.
.. The Seniors are now working on
the projects that will constitute
their work for the school year. The
- projects being made this year are
typical of those constructed by
Manual Training classes throughout
§he United States. These projects
§rclude cedar chests, tea wagons,
tables, aesks, etc. One project that
deserves special mention is a grand-
father’s clock. Such a project de-
mands great skill and patience, but
when finished it will be an attractive
iece of furniure.
The Juniors have studied the es-
sentials of woodworking for the past
six weeks, and are now drawing
diagrams of the articles that they in-
tend to make. The Junior. projects
.also include some difficult pieces of
gabinet work.
The pupils in the mechanical
drawing classes are progressing rap-
idly in their work, and they will
goon become proficient in the essen-
tials of drafting.
On the whole, the outlook for the
year is very promising and it is
hoped that this will be the best the
the department has known.
____A large barn on the B. S.
Long farm, in Nittany valley, ten-
anted by Joseph B. Hayes, was
burned to the ground at an early
hour on Monday morning. The fire
was discovered shortly after three
o'clock and Mr. Hayes was able to
get all his stock out safely, though
he was burned on the hands and
face in doing so. The season's Crops
and a new silo were totally destroy-
ed. The loss is estimated at from
$7,000 to $8,000, on which there
was $3,000 insurance.

believers in flying and the skeptic of
his day something serious to ]
about in his design for a flying boat
published in 1670. He stirred up a
veritable tempest which did not sub-
side for more than a hundred years,
when the principle he sponsored was
made practical in the invention of
the Montgolfier brothers . As late
as 1753, Clement Cavalcabo, Baroni
delli Marchesi, refuted Lana’s sup-
position with these conclusions: “The
atmosphere has always been un-
known to man, and will continue to
be a region unknown to him. No one,
not even the Demon himself, has
the power to teach man any method
by which he may explore that re-
gion, either by increasing his motive
power or by diminishing very con-
siderably his specfic gravity.” Fif-
teen years later, Bernardo Zamag-
na, one of the perennial defenders
of Lana, brought out his description
of an imaginary journey in a flying
machine similar in construction to
Lana’s flying boat. Lana's much
discussed design proposed the use of
four hollow spheres of thin copper,
each 20 feet in diameter and so thin
that they would weigh less than an
equal bulk of atmosphere when they
were exhausted of air. To these
globes a boat was to be fastened in
which the pilot and his appendages
were to be stationed for the purpose
Lana was
thus the first to establish a theory
verified by mathematical = accuracy
and clearness of perception of the
real nature and pressure of the at-
the same theory which is
at the basis of balloon flying of the
present day.
A public ascension of a flying boat
invented by Bartholomeau Lourenco
de Gusmao, a Spaniard, is claimed
for 1709, but it was Lana’s investi-
gations which were the most far
reaching in influence. Many of his
deductions were drawn from the
work of his predecessors and from a
of -mechancial toys, the flying
mechanical pigeon ‘of Archytas, the
flying magnectic "dove of Kircher,
n iron automatic fly and eagle
invented at Nuremberg.
im- | A curious parallel to this is found in
the automatic toy of the Wright
brothers, the study of which led
them to certain conclusions conecern-
ing the nature of air, later applied
n the construction of the first suc-
cessful airplane in 1903.

In Delaware Bay, near Cape May,
the first seadrome is now nearing
completion, according to Paul W.
White, in The American Magazine.
Within a few .months the strucure
will be towed to a point between the
United States and Bermuda and an-
chored there, making a stop for
planes almost half way betwen the
mainland and the island. The first
seadrome will be approximately 395
miles south and East of New York.
The island will be known as “Lang-
y. i
Edward R. Armstrong, consulting
engineer of the Du Pont Corpora-
tion, who obtained a leave of ab-
sence from that firm to superintend
the construction of the seadrome ov-
er his own plans, declares in White's
interview that the artificial islands
are no longer experiments of doubt-
ful value and that by June or July,
the first one will be in operation.
Armstrong and his associates have
gone into the construction of sea-
dromes on a puraly commercial basis

own, reducing the time of travel be-
tween New York and Hamilton from
47 hours sailing time to 6 hours, 30
minutes of flying time. This allows
a half hour stopover on the floating
island. :
The seadromes will be far from
parren landing places—mere make-
shift safety spots for distressed
planes. It will contain a hotel, ma-
chine shops and fueling facilities.
The hotel will need a permanent
crew of the island. The fare to Ber-
muda by plane - is expected to be
fixed at $150 for the round trip and
Armstrong estimates that under full
operation, the air service and the sea-
drome combination should earn near-
ly $2,000,000 a year.
Officials of the game commission
will carry on an extensive study of
the food habits of our various hawks
this winter, according to J. J. Slau-
sion. This season will offer a splen-
did opportunity to conduct such an
investization since aay hawks
come to hand after the goshawk
bounty became effective November
1st. While the study will concern
the goshawk chiefly, there will also
be opportunity for examining the
stomachs of various other species
which will no doubt be gent in for
It is also planned to prepare 2a
great many scientific skins of the
goshawks for use of field officers in
educational work. At the same time
there is bound to be a great many
skins which cannot be used in the
commission's work, and these will be
offered to various museums through-
out the State. The commission will
be glad to hear from any of these
institutions in this connection.
Those detailed to carry
study include Dr. Thomas E. Wine-
coff, in charge of research, Hugh H.
Groninger, chief of the bureau of
predatory animals, and Leo A. Lut-
tringer, in charge of education.
A detailed report of the results of
the invesigtion will be made public

Exercises will “turn the trick” if
they are done conscientiously and
regularly each day. One of the
pest exercises for slaying this par-
ticular form of avoirdupois is the
high front and back kick. Begin
rather slowly by simply swinging
one leg as far forward and then as
far backward as you can. ;
Practice this until the leg canbe
raised quite high in the backand a
little out at the side. The speed
should be gradually increased until
only a fraction of a second is lost
between Kicks. :
You better hold on a door knob
or chair, however, until you learn to
keep your balance. Grasping this
anchor firmly, you place both feet
on the floor, with most of your
weight resting on the left foot. Now
draw the right leg back and
slowly raise it as high as possible.
Of course you will have to keep the
knee rigid and the toes you should
point downward and out.

— There is one burglar, in the
animal world, that gets away with
it. When * a foreign visitor enters a
bee hive, the bees promptly capture
him and seal him up. But when
the huge death’s head moth enters
the hive, he makes a squeaking
noise which resembles the voice of
the queen. This frightens the other
bees and they ‘let him aicne.
—Several years ago it was com-
mon advice to avoid changing
breeds of poultry. That was before
the days of the large hatchery when
poultrymen established a flock with
a few settings of eggs, possibly
bought at a high price, and then
spent several years in developing
their own flocks. A change meant
starting all over. In ' many cases
birds of both breeds would be re-
tained and soon a pure-bred flock
became a flock of crosses followed
by a flock of mongrels.
—Most poultry keepers realize
that there are two courses open to
them in regard to unwanted males.
One plan is to dsstroy them as soon
as they can be distinguished; and
the other is to feed them well right
from the first day and so bring them
to fleshy conditien. The “latter
practice is sound so far as the early
