nnsTOH. JaU. 1L Mrs. nutn M. fora-
There Is a boy ln this city with the
alllteratlvo namo of Percy Pierce, who
is particularly fortunato from two stand
points, one of which Is that ho was born
with a talent for mechanics and tho other
that he Is possessed of a mothr capable of
understanding tho natural gifts of her
son, and herself having no Httlo me

Mrs. Edith W. Pierce Is known through
out the length nnd breadth of the city,
and outside Us limits, too, for that mat
ter, as a most efficient inspector in the
Bureau of Street Cleaning.
Tho particular bent of Percy Pierce's
mind Is toward aviation, and It is not
going wide of the mark to say that ho
began the study of air flight at a younger
period of life than It had ever been taken
up seriously by any other boy.
NOT AN INFANT PRODIGT.
It Is quite a relief to find no trace
of the infant prodigy about this youth.
To all appearances, he Is a normal boy,
tall but slightly built, and with an open,
honest countenance and the face of an
idealist. Ho impresses those with whom
he converses with the fact that he knows
his subject and knows that he knows it,
yet his knowledge Is not thrust down
one's throat. He also makes you feel
he Is a lltttle too serious, but what can
bo expected from one who was planning
flying machines and building them so
that they were made to fly at an ago
when his playmates were devoting their
surplus energies to mumbly peg, tip cat
PEnCT IN HIS WORKSHOP.
Percy was found In his workshop in
the cellar ot his mother's home, 6103
Catharine street About half of thin
Place is filled with his workbench and
appliances Incident to his work. The
fact that he is In close contact with tho
ordinary implements of domesticity makes
no difference to him, as neatness and
order prevail. The confusion which Is
thought by some to be- a necessary ad
junct to genius Is entirely absent.
Packed away carefully is a headless

"So, for ' tho same reason," she con
tinued, "give a child a chance to ex

latent powers, although often not found
until lato in life, sometimes not nt all,
because of a lack of encouragement.
The drawing-out process should bo started
as soon as possible. Individuality should
never be destroyed. That Is the great
fault of our public school system, the
samo mental food Is given to all nllke.
Just like feeding a thousand children with
tho same kind of physical food, whether
thoy like it or are ablo to digest It or not.

At the age of 14 Percy was Invited to
attend an exhibition of aerial craft held
In Boston. Along with his ba?saira ha
paoked a few small gliders as samples to
Interest boys In the mysteries of flying.
Much to his astonishment, there was an
Instant demand for them, and In a few
minutes his stock was depleted. Later
In the afternoon he bought paper and
paste and sat up nearly all night making
these miniature air machines. The fol
lowing morning he put them on sale at
10 cents each. They went like hot cakes.
Then business Instincts came to the
surface. He wired his mother to mako
all the gliders possible and ship them
During the next few days the home
circle was kept busy fostering the new
enterprise, with the result that Percy
returned home with h's pockets stuffed
with bank notes, for which he had
changed his nickels, dimes and quarters.
The venture netted him nearly 3500.
MADE AEROPLANE AT TEN,
When this lad was a youngster of 10, he
calmly proceeded to develop an aeroplane
to be run by a two-horsepower engine.
Before this he had Invented a heavier
than-alr machine with vibrating planes
and screw propeller. To all intents and
purposes these were his own inventions.
First experiments were made ln the back
yard, and from the modest gliders the
evolution continued until his giant 26
footer was built last year In his cellar.
In this he made several, successful
flights, the gilder being towed by a 60
horsepower automobile. The towing rope
was cut after sufficient momentum had
been given to enable the machine to rise,
as It has no motive power of its own.
Percy believed he could make a success
ful flight and the auto started at a SO-mlle-an-hour
clip. When the brow pf the hill
was reached the inventor and pilot sud
denly realized he was soaring over the
auto at a dangerous angle. The controls
filled to respond quickly enough to save
jHhe right wing from a slight smash.
WHAT MRS, PIERCE THINKS.
"When mothers have been disturbed by
the fact that Invention, or even the spirit
of invention, may take away their chil
dren's Interest from their studies. I in-,
variably say, 'Let them express them

HADDONFIELD, N. J., Jan. ll.-Thls
town Is feeling the result of the "Billy"
Sunday campaign In Philadelphia. Trail
hitters already have come forward, the
first being a local millionaire. The work
began yesterday morning when a meet
ing of delegates from every church In
town was held In the Presbyterian
church. A band of "welcomers" wns
Testerday afternoon 425 men gathered
In Artisans' Hall and heard George Long,
head of the Inasmuch Mission, of Phila
delphia, tell of the work being dono by
"Billy" Sunday. The meeting was ar
ranged by a committee of 25 persons ap
pointed in the morning.
Mr. Long was assisted by Mrs. Long,
Joseph M. Weston, of Camden, nnd
Henry W. Pennypacker, ot Haddonfleld.
At the conclusion of his talk, Mr. Long
asked those who believed the world
needed a greater Christianity to grasp
his hand as he walked through tho audi
ence. Henry D. Moore, known ns one of
the town's wealthiest men, was tho llrst
to grasp Mr. Long's hand.
Besides this manifestation, prayers
were offered In each church of the bor
ough for the Buccess of the "Billy" Sun
day campaign. The Rev. William Allen,
Jr., pastor or the First Presbyterian
Church, who last Sunday called the
"Sunday" campaign to the attention of
his congregation, strongly urged each
member of his church to attend tho
tnbernaclo meetings. Tho Rev. J. M. T.
Chlldrev. of tho First Baptist Church,
and the Rev. Alphonse Dare, of the
Methodist church, also offered prnyers.
At the conclusion of the morning serv
ices, each pastor asserted he noted many
members of his church present who had
mt nttpnilcil n. service for months, The
epeclal committee ot 25 persons will enrry
on follow-up work Tn welcoming converts.
GERMAN FLEETS REPORTED
ACTIVE OFF SOUTH AMERICA
British Vessels Ordered to Stay ln
RIO JANEIRO. Jan. 11. British vessels
all along the Brazilian and Argentlno
coast have been ordered to remain In
port because of the report that another
German squadron Is operating along the
Brazilian coast. No Information regard
ing ths composition of this squadron Is
available here, although one report says
that the Karlsruhe and her convoys have
been augmented by German warships that
ran the gauntlet of the British fleet ln
the North Sea and escaped.
There Is no confirmation of the reports
received on Saturday night that the
British cruiser Invincible sank the Ger
man battle cruiser Von der Tann In a
stand-up battle off the coast of Pernam-
buco. The Minister or .Marine, Admiral
Alpncar, says the Invincible sailed from
Recife, Pepiambuco, on Saturday after
noon, and that later she passed the
Argentine dreadnought Rlvadavla off
shore. He said that the warships may
have exchanged salutes and that this
may have been responsible for the story.
Nevertheless the reports of a battle be
tween the Invincible and a German war
ship continue to be circulated, although
the dlplomatlo officials ot both England
and Germany discredit them.
BRITISH ROUTED IN AFRICA
BERLIN, Jan. ll.-The Official Press
Bureau publishes tho following:
"The Morgen Post prints details of a
recent British attack on Tanga, German
East Africa, which apparently emanated
from the German Colonial Office. The
first landing of 6000 British and Hindus
was repulsed by the Germans, who num
bered about 200, the British losing 6000
killed or wounded. The British attacked
the, next day with reinforcements, but
again were defeated with a loss of 3000.
They then re-embarked and sailed tor
Tanga l a seaport town of 009 popu

War Secretary Discounts Military
Value of Islands,
WASHINGTON, Jan. ll.-Bccretary of
War Garrison today appeared before the
Senate Philippine Committee In support
of tho bill to grant Independence to the
Filipinos. He aald he had no objection
to make tho preamble of tho bill require
"a Just, stabto and representative govern'
ment" Instead of merely "a stabto govern
ment." To tho suggestion of Senator Llppltt,
of Rhode Island, that nil tho people
should bo educated In English before In
dependence should bo granted, Garrison
replied that suoli n, condition never had
been established In tho United States,
since nil campaign lltcraturo In this
country was printed In sir or eight
languages. As to the Moros, ho said he
would ask that the bill bo amended to
provldo a special vlco governor to deal
with tholr affairs and with health and
education In the Islands.
Questioned ns to the military value of
tho Islands, tho Secretary said thoy wero
"obviously a military liability" to tho
"I do not think Initially we could hold
them," Secretary Garrison said, "nnrnlnnt
a first class military power. Any military
nation in tno far east from the very fact
of Its proximity could take them. Our
disadvantages In sending a defensive
force might bo compared to that of China
sending a defensive force to Cuba."
