"A real plane, a heavier than air
machine of great weight, can be built
as soon as we obtain something that
beats the air at the rate of 200 time

times more than his wings. If we I
can only get to that, get to that—the

that is the thing. The bee's wings

When holes appear in aluminium
utensils it is not necessary to discard
the dishes as no longer useful, for by
a simple method they can be made to
take solder. Insert a brass or copper
rivet in the hole, flatten both ends am!
then solder over both the inside and
the outside surfaces iu the usual man
ner. If you wish to solder a piece to
a sound part of the utensil use a sharp
awl to punch holes for holding spots of
copper or brass. If the aluminium is
very thick cut the holes with a small
drill held in a carpenter's bit brace.

A Samplo of Its Punishment During tht
Thirty Years' War.
Punishment for cowardice In th-
German army at the time of the Thir
ty Years' war was so severe as to iw
ferocious. In the year 1G42 the Swed
ish General Torsteusson stormed Lelp
zig. A force under the command ot
the Grand Duke Leopold gave him bat
tie before the gates of the city, imi
during the engagement the Madlo
nische regiment became suddenly pan
lc stricken and fled.
Punishment immediately followed
When the regiment had again asjsein
bled six other regiments surrounded
it and tried it by court martial iu th*
open field. The verdict was that
colonel and the captains should die b*
the sword and that every tenth man
among the noncommissioned office vi
and men should be banged.
The stern verdict was carried out to
the letter, except that at the request
of Leopold the men were shot Instead
of hanged. Colonel George Madlo
nische was beheaded after He had
sought in vain for a pardon. The sur
vlvors were consigned to quarters with
other commands, and the regiment nev
er regained its name or former pre*
tige. In those days there was no alter
native but to be brave Cowardice
meant either death or everlasting dla
A couple in a certain village, each
the parent of six children, had meted
out to them a kind of poetic Justice
In which they failed to see the poetry
The woman, a widow, pleading that
she had no home and was therefore
unable to care for her children, induc
ed the local authorities to admit them
to an orphan asylum. The man. a
widower, pleading he bad no bouse
keeper and therefore no one to care
for his children, induced th'i authori
ties to admit bis six also. Thereupon,
being freed from all incumbrances,
these two married.
All went well for a few months,
when the authorities, learning of the
situation, promptly dispatched the
twelve children back to their parents,
and. the woman no longer able to rep
resent herself as homeless or the man
as without a housekeeper, they were
forced to receive them.

A Curious Superstition.
Many Greeks firmly believe to this
day in a curious heathen notion, which
holds that the fate of every child 1s
controlled entirely by three mysterious
spirits, who are spoken of collectively
as the "moral." These three "fates"
ar*- supposed to be invisible women,
who come on a visit of inspection
shortly after the birth of each child.
They always come after sundown, says
the superstition, and the Greek parents
when a newly born baby is in the
house and a visit from the "moral" is
expected carefully lea. e t u e door open
and lav a feast and money offerings
all ready for the "fates" when they
