Jhe Home Players Again
Marks for Anson.
iMnlap Offered to Boston, but the
Price Too Big.
Boston Again Takes a Good Leal in the
Pennant Struggle.
Once more the Chlcagos defeated the
Pittsburg ball team yesterday. Tener, of
the East End. did great work for Chicago,
and so did Staley for Pittsburg; but Howe's
Kostly error knocked chances of local vic
Jtory into oblivion. The "Washington team
Ibcat the Giants easily. Dunlap has been
offered to Boston, but that club deemed his
price too big. Smith will go to Boston.
Philosophers all tell us of such things in
human affairs as reactions. A few short
days ago all of us in and about Pittsburg
who are interested in the daily events of the
national game, were clean up to the seventh
heaven with delight We laid the small
people from Cleveland low. and our feelings
twerc stretched and no doubt about it. How
ever, a change has come over the scene, and
c delegation from Chicago are simply
Ixnopping up the floor, or at least the dia-J
saond, with us.
Another one-sided game was played yester-
3ay at Recreation Park between the home
team and the visitors from the Windy City of
the West. If the playing of the home talent yes-
Lterday is to be taken as a criterion, we can rest
assurea tnat tneir ngniiui piace is ao
Bolntely at the foot of the list A
Bame of ball which was more palpably lost
Iby glaring errors has seldom if ever been seen.
There is not a palliating feature in the defeat;
xae latter was caused Dy aownncnt oaa piay
ins?. and that tells the entire storv. The visitors
made five runs and the home players made one;
but not one run of the six came near being
earned. .. Wretched fielding gave the visitors
their quota, and a base on balls was the
prompting power 01 me local run.
'twas wretched fieldixg.
fb Everyone of the 1.000 people present will say
(that it was only bad fielding that lost the game.
fStaley pitched well, and at most there ongbt
(only to have been five hits made off him.
There were three made after the side ought to
have been out in the third inning without a
run. Bowe made a costly, though somewhat ex
fcusable error, and fonr runs were made
after it At a later stage Dunlap
somewhat lost his head, and was to a
great extent instrumental in allowing another
run to be scored. Without doubt the fielders
had an off day and the cause of it may be con
jectural. It was evident to all that the visitors
could do little or nothing with Staley, but the
'miserable fielding made everybody weary and
fsick at heart
l B At stages there were loud cries for Smith and
iKuehne, bnt it may be safe to cay that their
fcrles were chiefly prompted by impulse, because
fbf the excitement of the moment Nobodv
who has had a trustworthy experience of
League ball games would argue that Kuehne
and Smith are equal to Rowo and Dunlap.
.The question does teem a debatable one, but
the best of people can have their days of mis
takes. There is not a player in the country who
loes not reach bis unlucky moments now and
fagaln. Smith and Kuehne were certainly as
liable to meet their unfortunate periods as any
ibody in the country. Howe and Dunlap then
of it yesterday, and one of the errors made by
'Howe was one of those exceedingly unfortu
tnate mistakes that turns out to be the prime
factor in bringing about a victory. Such is base
iball, even in the best regulated team the world
ever saw.
Tener, the tall young gentleman from the
East End, was in the box for the visitors. It
'ever there was a deceiving youth Mr. Tener Is
one. If e delivers the ball with an ease and to
Borne extent a grace that gives one an idea that
Ills only aim is to put the ball where it can be
hit in delivering the ball Tener's nonchalance
is remarkable, and every batter that is fooled
'only wonders the more how it has been done.
V spectator cannot detect any unnsual speed
n Tener's delivery: indeed, his speed seems not
to be up to the average and the truth is,
"rom an onlooker's standpoint there aoes not
eem to be a puzzling point about a ball that
e pitches. He gets there, however, at least
.edid so yesterday with great effect and his
friends in the crowd were evidently pleased to
tee it It will be something very singular, how
ever, if Tener's very seductive style of pitching
is not measured before long. He was well
supported: in fact the support afforded him
all round was perfect and that was a very en
couraging feature to him.
The home team were the first to score, and
they did so almost as soon as possible. After
Jllanlon was out in the first inning Carroll got
(to first on balls. Becklcy then knocked out a
'single to middle field, Carroll getting to third.
"Miller banged out another single to left and
Carroll scored, Beckley getting to second.
Bowe came next, and he sent a bound
ing grounder to Burns, who touched
Beckley out and made a donble
play by throwing Bowe out at first T bis was
'thu first and last rnn made by the home players.
Several of them hit tne ball hard, but some
,'bow or otner it either bounded Into a fielder's
lands or went straight through the air to
where a man was standing ready to nab it
& In the third inning the visitors were simply
mothered with fortune's smiles; at least the
mistakes of the home plavers gave them almost
all they could desire. Burns led off and went
'out at first Tener. amid great applause, made
,a single to right and was put out at second on
Haitian's grounder to Dunlap. This looked
like pie, and it was thought at the end of tbo
inning the game would be 1 to 0 in the home
team's favor. Ryan, however, knocked a
grounder to Rowe, bo flagrantly fumbled it
ET?Q Bastian reached second and Ryan
first. Van Haltren then rapped out
& sincle to left and Bastian
scored. Ryan reaching third and Van second.
Duffy brought both men in on a long single to
middle. Duffy reaching second on the play.
Anson's long single to left sent Duffy home,
making four great big runs, instead of a blank.
This had a sort of wet-blanket effect and the
club officials w ere reminded of the existence of
Smith and Kuehne.
. After Farrell bad been retired in the fourth
inning. Burns hit the ball for a single to center,
and got to second on Dnnlap's stupid fumble of
.Tener's grounder. A passed ball sent Burns to
third and Tener to second. After Bastian was
retired at first Ryan's single to short stop sent
Sums home. No more runs were made. In the
Uf tu inning Anson made a three-bagger after
two men were out but PfefTer struck out Mo-.-Quaid

Boston Wouldn't Fay the Price for Him
Coownj'i New Claims.
When Smith was notified yesterday by Secre
tary Scandrett that he could go to Boston he
at first held ont for half the release money.
Finally he consented to go without enforcing
these conditions. PresidentNimlck stated defin
itely yesterday that Dunlap had been offered to
Boston, but the terms were too steep for the
Triumvirs. The latter would neither give the
price asked nor trade a good catcher. An
effort was then made to trade Smith for Ganzel,
but this wouldn't go, and Smith was sold.
Pitcher Conway, it is now reported, threatens
to try and obtain his salary from the club. It
is stated that the brotherhood will push his
claim. It is not stated, however, what are the
reasons of his claims. The local officials are in
no way alarmed about the matter.

he plays here or not One thing Is certain,
however, and that is that we won't get any the
worstof the deal. The St Louis people seem
to think tbat they have gotten the best of us,
but they are mistaken. If Hudson don't play
here, then Ramxey will not play with the
Browns unless we are paid for him, or else
Hudson will not be allowed to play ball any.

and he stated tbat his arm was mending fast,

we have not decided what to do."

A Husband and Wife Debarred From Marry
ing, Yet Allowed to Do So.
Middletown, N. Y.t July 30. Adeline
F. Smith and Irving Johnson were married
at Marathon in 1883. Alter being together
a year or two they quarreled and sepa
rated. Each charged the other with
infidelity, and the husband en
tered suit for a divorce in the Supreme
Court of Onondaga county, while the wife
began a similar suit in the Supreme Court
of Cortland county. As it happened,
both courts ordered the entering
of decrees in favor of the respective
plaintiffs on the same day, and in each case
upon terms which stopped the defendant
from marrying again during the life
time of the plaintiff. In other words,
the Onondaga Court gave Mr.
Johnson a decree of divorce with the privi
lege of marrying again, while denying that
privilege to his wife, and the Cortland
Court gave Mrs. Johnson a divorce with the
privilege of remarrying, while withholding
that privilege from her husband.
Mrs. Johnson married Alexander Champ
lin, a respectable young farmer ot Groton.
Her second matrimonial venture turns oat
a failure, like the first Mr. Champlin
now brings suit, asking that the alleged
marriage of the parties be declared fraudn
lent and null and void, inasmuch as Mrs.
Johnson failed to inform him before their
marriage that there existed a judgment of
court which barred her from marrying

Los Angeles Defeats Hanover in a
Desperate Race.
Opening Day of the Cleveland Grand Cir
cnit Meeting.
The HUladelphia Cricketers Mike a Bally and Has
tie the Englishmen.
There was a great race at Saratoga yester
day between Los Angeles and Hanover, the
former winning amid the wildest excitement,
Cleveland's great trotting meeting opened,
and some very fast records were made, par
ticularly in the pacing. The Philadelphia
cricketers did good work against the
Southampton players, and may win the
Sakatooa, July 30. It would be im
possible to ' imagine more disagreeable
weather for racing than prevailed at this
track to-day. Eain fell steadily, and the
track was a sea of mud. It was a day for
bowling over the favorites, but certainly no
one looked for the defeat of Hanover, and
when Lucky Baldwin's mare collared him
the spectators went perfectly wild. Hats
and umbrellas were thrown in the air and
everyone shouted.
First race, three quarters of a mile Starters:
Olockner, Maori. Vendetta, Irene. Carlton.
Maori won in 120; Irene second, Glockner
Second race, the Excelsior stakes, $50 each
with J1.000 added, one mile and a quarter
Starters: Hanover, Los Angeles and Montrose.
Hanover took the lead at the start, and for a
mile remained a length ahead with Montrose
in second place. On the lower turn Los An
geles came up like' a flash, and after a des
perate struggle through the stretch, landed a
neck in front. It was a magnificent race, and
the greatest display of horsemanship seen tin
this track for many a year. Both Hanover
and Los Angeles finished very gamely. Barnes
received tremendous applause on his return to
the stand. Time 2U3. Los Angeles was ridden
by Barnes, Hanover by Murphy, and Montrose,

St. PATJls Minn., July 30. The most agree
able features of the Twin City Jockey Club

Tho Two Murphys Slug Each Other nt tbe
Rooms of the California Athletic
Clnb Some Bard Fighting
for a Good Purse.
San Francisco, July SO. A fight to a finish
for a purso of $1,800, 1300 to the loser, took
place at the rooms of the California Athletic
Club to-night between Frank Murphy,
tbe fea'ther-weight champion of England,
and Billy Murphy, the feather-weight
champion of Australia, who knocked out
Johnny Griffin, of Boston, m three .rounds
In the same club rooms on the 12th
Inst. Frank Murphy's last battle was -with Ike
"Wier, the Spider," with whom ha fought a
draw in 80 rounds, in Indiana, March last.
Time was called at 927. Frank led with a
left-hander in the Australian's stomach. In
terchange of blows followed, Frank's left find
ing Billy's ear, and the tatter's right reaching
the Englishman's wind. Billy then got in three
singles on different parts of Frank's body, while
the little man broke ground, but was cool and
In the second round the men sparred well up
in Fiank's corner. The latter broke ground
and took another corner. Interchange half
arm blows followed, the Englishman landing
heavily. In tbe rally Frank fell in the corner and
Billy slipped over tbe ropes. The Australian
kept both hands going and failed to ward a
right-hand roaster in his ribs. In another rally,
a sounding right-hand swing on Billy's car,
brought forth considerable applause. The
round closed with a lett-hand tap from Billy on
his adversary's chest.
In the third, fourth and fifth rounds some
very lively sparring was witnessed. Few
heavy blows were struck in the sixth and
seventh. In the eighth a left bander on the
chin drove the Australian back. The latter in
the rally fell clean over the Englishman,
landing on his hands. Frank got in several
sounders in the wind with his right, in the
twelfth round a left hander on the Australian's
ribs was followed by a clean straight blow on
the Englishman's nose. A clinch followed,
and the Australian received another left hand
upper cut. Some fruitless sparring followed.
In the thirteenth round the Australian came
up savage and chased his opponent clear across
tbe ring into the latter's corner. Frank tapped
him several times with his left, while he sought
an opening. In a rush he caught a couple right
and left hand swings in the ribs. In
tbe fourteenth round tbe Englishman assumed
the aggressive, and some fierce fighting fol
lowed, right and left hand swings for
head alternately with savage up
per cuts and clinches. Both
men fought themselves groggy, and
thunderous applause followed the close of
the round. The fighting was fierce from then
up to the seventeenth round, when both men
seemed to be sparring for wind after their
ferocious struggle.
in tbe twenty-third, twenty-fourth and
twenty-fifth rounds nothing was done, each
man waiting for the other to lead, and hisses
and Cries of, "Make it a
draw;" "make them fight," rose from
the galleries. At the end of the twenty-seventh
ronud the referee stepped into the ring and
said it was clearly apparent the men could not
go on with the fight. He said he did
not know what was the matter with the men,
but the clnb never did and never would
declare a draw. He would not allow
the men to stand around doing no
lighting. He would simply declare tbe fight
postponed and in the meantime the directors
would take measures to hnd out what was the
matter with the men.
A Rather Lively Battle Which Was Stopped
' by the Police.
Buffalo, July SO. Peter Jackson, the big
California negro, now the protege of Parson
Davies, who is stopping off here, giving spar
ring exhibitions on his way to New
York, was downed hers to-night. Tom
Lynch, tho Irish Giant, a big local
athlete of more muscle than brains,
was billed to stand up for four rounds before
Jackson. Somebody bad put it into his head
that he could down tbe Calif ornian, and he
sailed Into him with tbat evident intent. It
was a tremendous slugging match. The two
men began thumping each other with might
and main as soon as they shook hands, and the
crowd yelled with delight.
Finally, in tbe second round, with a stentorian
curse that could be beard for blocks. Lynch
grabbed Jackson by the legs, pulled his pins
out from under him, and jumped on him. The
crowd sprang into their chairs, every man of
them, and yelled till the roof cracked. It re
quired dozens to pull the two men apart. The
police rushed in then and put a stop to tho
The Philadelphia Cricketers Make a Great
Rally at Southampton.
London, July 30. The game between the
Philadelphia cricket team and the Gentlemen
of Southampton was continued to-day. The
wicket was in much better condition than yes
terday. NewbalL of the American team,
played well for 21 runs. Brewster and Patter
son also played excellent cricket. Together
they added 79 runs to the score before Brews
ter was dismissed for 35. Patterson's batting
was the feature of the day. After an inning
of 3 hours and 33 minutes, he carried out bis
bat for 106 runs. His score included 1 five
run bit. 13 fours and 3 threes and 4 twos. He
was heartily applauded. The score of the visi
tors in their second inning was 228.
At tbe call for time the home team had made
13S in their second inning with six wickets
down." In their first inning yesterday, the
Americans scored 101 against 108 for South
He Is Tired of Being Dogged by a Detec
tive Who Is on the Make.
Baltijioee, July 3a Very little credit is
placed in the report that Kilraln would Surren
der to the New Orleans authorities. He
will certainly nut go with Norrls, nor will
be or his friends agree to any terms offered by
this alleged detective. Kilraln would gladly
settle with the Governor of MlssissippLif by
so doing he could get off with a fine. He is
tired of playing at hide and seek.
Letters received here from people who say
they have had dealings with ftorris give the
latter a very poor recommendation. There are
not a few who believe that he is "on the
make," and that he would let np for
a consideration. Kilram wants to establish a
school here, but under the circumstances is
unable to make any arrangements for an open

BltADDOCK, Pa July 3a There was some
more good racing on the Union Driving Park
course this evening. A pacing race between
horses owned by J. L. Carlisle and H. S. Hamp
ton was won by tbe latter in 2:42. Carlisle's
horse was completely distanced in this nee. A
trot between Henry Null's Gray Eagle and D.
M Kier's Queen wag very exciting. Null's
horse crossed the line a winner in 3:10. A run
ning race was also participated in by ponies of
Henry Null and Charley Britt. Null's pony
won this dash also. Best time, 222.
Jackson Knocked Oat In a Scrap.
Buffalo, N. Y.. July sa Peter Jackson,
the colored Australian pugilist, gave an exhi
bition here last night. This afternoon, in the
corridor of tbe Tiff t House, Tom Lees, a mem
ber of Jackson's company, asked for the salary
due him, saying be was going to leave tbe com
bination. Jackson said he had no money, and
after a dispute tbe two engaged in a slugging
matcb, in which Jackson was "downed" by his
opponent. Lees was afterward ejected from
the hotel.

Grand Army Commanders of Eight
States Unanimously Decide
Warner's Plea for a Crowd Palls to Meet
With a Kesponse.
That the Action Taken by the Eallroads Must be Sat
Sown Upon.
Notwithstanding. General "Warner's call
for a good attendance at the G. A. B. En
campment, the prospects are decidedly
otherwise. Eight Department Commanders
met at Chicago yesterday, and agreed that
their States should not he represented ex
cept by delegates. This practically settles
the matter.
Chicago, July 30. The Grand Army of
the Republic department commanders of
eight States were in session nearly all day
at the Grand Pacific Hotel, debating the
stand they should take in reference to the
annual encampment next month at Mil
waukee. The result of the meeting was a
positive and unqualified indorsement of the
announced determination to discourage gen
eral attendance in view of the refusal of the
railroads to make satisfactory rates.
The States represented were Illinois, by
Department Commander Martin; Iowa,
Commander Charles H. Davis, of Mt.
Pleasant; Minnesota, Commander A. Barto,
of Sauk Center; Missouri, Colonel Sogers,
of Springfield, representing Commander
Phelps; Indiana, Commander Charles M.
Travis, of Crawfordsville; Michigan, Com
mander M. Brown, of Big Rapids; Kansas,
Com sander Booth, of Larned; Nebraska,
Commander J. B. Davis, of "Wahoo.
The conference was presided over by Gen
eral Martin, and a triple decision was
First Tbat tbe posts represented indorse
and accept the manifesto issued in this city
July 2, in which a general attendance at the
encampment was to be discouraged if the rail
ways did not recede from their positions.
Second That the manifesto of July 2 was in
accord with the action of the last national
encampment at Columbus, O., as Indorsed by
the resolution found in the journal on pages
219 and 220.
Third That some time in the near future
the representatives present will Issue a circular
tbat will be signed by eight Department Com
manders, with possibly a few more, withdraw
ing the departments represented from the
parade that is advertised to take place.
The resolutions of the Columbus conven
tion referred to is as follows:
The National Council of administration be,
and is authorized and directed to insist upon
definite contracts tor transportation rates to
the twenty-third National Encampment. It
Bhall be tbe duty of the council to demand that
a specific maximum rate be fixed, and
be made, covering every phase of necessary
and proper arrangement. It is ordered that
unless just, fair and reasonable contracts for
railroad and botel fares be not made, then the
council is authorized to fix upon some other
location for the encampment. Unless railroads
present relief to comrades, the various depart
ments will discourage the attendance of all ex
cept members.
The manifesto of July 2 referred to, is a
circular letter prepared and issued by the
department officers of Illinois. It was the
first indication ot open retaliation and rep
resented only Illinois posts. Continued
agitation of the matter and the refusal of
the railways to concede terms as low as de
sired broadened the breach begun by the
Illinois veterans. At the present time the
disposition against a general attendance is
a general one, shared by most ot the West
ern posts. To-day's meeting was a result of
a desire for definite action. General Martin
says there is now not much doubt about the
outcome of the fight.
"The railway people," he says, "have
held us off on one pretext or another, say
ing: 'Wait a little longer, we will see what
we can do,' until we are tired of waiting.
Every department commander here to-day
has authority to act for his State posts."
"Does it destroy the chances of a big
meeting at Milwaukee?"
"It looks very much like it We repre
sent the States that would have furnished
the crowd. If onlv our representatives go,
of course, it must virtually kill the encamp
ment," General Martin said he did not know
when the general order withdrawing the
States from the parade would be made.
None of the other representatives would ex
press views on the time it would be issued..
The Chairman was given the privilege of
reassembling the conference at any time.
General Martin said that he was receiving
from 5 to 20 letters a day indorsing tho sent
iment of the manifesto of July 2. The
other department commanders talk in much
the same way.
"There won't be anyone go from In
diana," said Commander Travis, "but the
delegates. The posts are all thoroughly in
dignant. General Lew Wallace, General
M. D.Manson, Governor Hovey and others,
who were to attend, have told me they
would not go."

A Very Lively Discussion ef the Question In
tbe Jfortb-Dalcotn Convention Friends
of the Land Tax Doctrine Mon
tana Salaries Kept Cp.
Bismaeckt, N. D., July 30. In the Con
stitutional Convention to-day Bolfe, of
Benson county, threw a fire brand by offer
ing an amendment to the article on suffrage
providing that after five years no man who
Is not a full citizen ot the United States
shall have a right to rote. This brought
the orators to their feet and many opposed
tbe amendment. Moer, of Lamoure, could
not see why men who in conversation fav
ored such a proposition, should not favor it
publicly, and intimated that they were
afraid of the foreign vote. Tbe theory that
all taxes should be collected from the lands,
and improvements and personal property
be exempt, is popular with many of the del
egates. At Helena the Montana convention con
sidered and passed the bill on tbe execu
tive department. Efforts to reduce State
officers' salaries proved fruitless. The
suffrage bill, with the amendments by the
Committee of the Whole, was next taken
up. More desperate efforts were made on
behalf of the woman's suffrage order.
They were cut short by adjournment. On
re-assembling Mr. Toole made a speech
against embodying the matter in the Con
stitution. The vote on the proposition was
a tie, 33 to 33. This relegates the woman's
suffrage question to oblivion for the present.
The suffrage bill was then submitted as
amended and accepted by a vote of 61 to 6.
In the Washington convention the section
establishing a soldiers' home was passed,
unly two delegates voting against it The
other clauses, providing that the Legisla
ture shall provide for the protection and
safe keeping of arms, that militia men shall
not be arrested while on duty, and that per
sons having conscientious scruples against
bearing arms shall not be required to serve
in the militia, but shall pay the equivalent
for such exemption, were passed.
Initial Steps Taken to Guard Against a Rep
etition of the Church Burning The Pas
tor Is Out In nn Interview.
A meeting was held in Duquesne on Mon
day evening and a continuance thereof last
night, consisting for the most part of mem
bers of the congregation of the burned
Methodist Church. After some discussion
it was pretty generally agreed that
appearances were decidedly in fa
vor of the incendiarism idea.
At 9-20 last night abont a score of persons
put in an appearance. The proceed
ings were private, bnt one of
those who attended supplied the
particulars. William Oliver presided.
The first subject discussed was the report
circulated to the effect that the fire had been
occasioned by malice aforethought An
agreement could not be reached on this
point, but it was evident that the majority
of those present believed in the incendiarism
theory. Mr. Oliver then stated the various
plans for prevention in future of such con
flagrations. Among these was a volunteer
fire brigade, which didn't seem to take. The
next idea was a more feasible one, namely,
to pay a night watchman; but of course his
attention would be confined to the church
alone. This plan was adopted.
A short interview was obtained with Bev.
Mr. Tannehill, pastor of the burned church.
He had no doubt whatsoever that the burn
ing was a prearranged affair. When ques
tioned as to tbe motive of such a crime, he
said: "Plunder was the motive. Several
Eeople tried to enter stores and private
ouses during tbe excitement caused by the
flames, and I have heard that some minor
articles were stolen. This is not the first
attempt at incendiarism here. A house on
the hill was partially burnt and robbed a
short time ago. If proper steps were taken
the perpetrators could be identified." ,
A New York Bookkeeper Gives Up the
Struggle for Life.
New Tobk, July 30. Henry Parker, a
bookkeeper for the Consolidated Gas Com
pany, in its main office, committed suicide
some time between Monday night and this
morning, in his home on the top floor of the
apartment house, 128 East Forty-first street,
by taking arsenic. He was Well known
in the Protestant Episcopal Church
of the Holy Trinity, which he attended.
He was about SO years of age and was born
in England. He came to this country from
London 20 years ago, and became a citizen.
Mr. Parker's wife died about three years
ago, and since then, at times, he has been
despondent His five daughters have con
tinued to live with him and keep house for
him. The eldest is 18 and the youngest is 6
years old.
The Problem of Their Construction Re
ceiving Great Attention.
Ballway Master Mechanic!
The problem of air navigation is receiving
more attention now than ever before. Nor is
it "cranks" only who are workingat it Me
chanical engineers of abilityand reputation
are devoting time and thought to its solution.
That some one will work it out at a not very
distant day is not at all impossible, nor even
improbable. It is simply a question of in
creasing power without increasing the weight
of the apparatus by which the power is de
veloped. Just how much the ratio of power
to weight must be increased we do not
venture to say, but there are no suffi
cient grounds for asserting that such in
crease is impracticable. The solution of the
problem may be found in improved engines
and boilers, or in fuels or in storage bat
teries, or in some yet unexplored part of the
field of electrical force. It would be rash to
predict just how success will be reached,
but it would be much more rash to insist
that it never will be reached.
The successful airship will, it is safe to
say, be a large structure, very light in
weight compared with its strength, but yet
many times heavier than the air it dis
places. The mechanical skill which has
produced that, marvel of lightness and
strength, the modern bicycle, will not find
the task of designing such a structure too
Attempts to navigate the air by means of
gas-inflated receptacles have been persisted
in through a hundred years, but no real suc
cess has been reached. Such devices, in spite
of all the efforts to make them dirigible,
are but as feathers in the wind. All such
attempts are in the wrong direction. A bird
can fly not because it is comparatively light
in weight (for.it is not) bnt because it is
strong. Its breast muscles, by which its
wings are operated, are of immense pro
portionate size, and the rapid circulation of
blood supplies these muscles with abundant
stores of energy. Of all living creatures
the vital energies of the bird are the most
intense, and it is, therefore, able to produce
the power required to sustain its body in,
and propel it through, tbe air.
