In Curtlas Biplane Sails Two Miles
Before Landing.
Norfolk. Va., Nov. 15. Eugene Ely
In a Curtis biplane made the first
aeroplune flight on record from the
deck of n vessel.
From a point In lower Chesapeake
bay presumed to be about ten miles
from the Norfolk navy yard, his ob
jective point, Ely sailed from the deck
of the United States scout cruiser Bir
mingham, landing within fifteen mln
utcs afterward at Willoughby spit, n
narrow strip of sand about eight miles
from Norfolk.
When Ely flew from the deck of the
cruiser his biplane struck the water
nnd broke one of his propeller blades.
This forced him to make a landing
after he had traveled a distance of
about two miles. Ely was not Injured.
It Is probable that Ely will make the
second attempt to reach the navy yard
as soon as his flier Is repaired.

cision on Injunctions.
"If Men De Forced to Work Whether

Man le No Longer Free' Hie
Statement In a Report.
New York, Nov. 15. President Sam
uel Gompers of the American Federa
tion o'f Labor devotes a large part of
his annual report to Uie thirtieth con
vention of Uie federation nt St Louis
to an attack on court injunctions. Mr.
Gompers criticises Supreme Justice
Goff for the open shop decision wudo
during Uie garment workers strike and
slaps nt the Sixty-first congress for
falling to limit tho Injunction courts.
After calling attention to the growth
of the federation In this country, Can
ada nnd elsewhere and denying that
trade unionism Is nnrrow, President
Gompers takes up Justice Goffs open
shop decision.
"While this Judge's nctlon In this
case wns not taken seriously either by
the press or by tho public," Mr. Gom
pers said, "It served to show tho ne
cessity thnt exists for a state restrain
ing the abuse of power by Judges,
federal and state, particularly In the
Issuance of the Injunctions by which
the liberties of the citizens when these
citizens are wngeworkers are outra
geously Invaded and denied.
"It is not amiss here to call atten
tion to the fact thnt. If workmen may
be denied by injunction or by any
other process tho right to leave their
employment either singly or In associ
ation In a desire to secure n union
shop, if they mny be restrained by an
Injunction from striking In sympathy
with their fellow workers. If they may
be enjoined from striking for any rea
son whatever, the difference between
the so called free workmen nnd the
workmen who must yield obedience to
their masters, slaves, has disappeared.
The only reason for slave holding Is to
compel men to work."
The annual report of .Secretary Mor
rison says that there were 1,5C1,'151
members of the federation nt the close
of the fiscal year Sept. 30, 1010, a gain
of 8,000 over last year, but 100,000
smaller than the biggest year, 1004.
The federation has a reserve fund of
$183,000. There were 875 strikes In
the Inst year, of which 470 were won,
259 are pending, 81 were compromised,
and 02 were lost.
Bloodhounds on Trail of Careless
Mellen, Wis., Nov. 15. Bloodhounds
are lending a posse of armed woods
men on the trail and closing In on an
unidentified hunter who shot nnd kill
ed City Clerk Louis Oleson of Abbots
ford, apparently under the Impression
that he whs a deer. Sheriff Klein
stelber, who is in charge of the posse,
Is determined to rid this locality of
careless hunters nnd obtained two
trained bloodhounds a short time ngo,
after another hunter was killed by
mistake, for use In just such an emer
gency. If Oleson's slayer Is enptured he
may be roughly handled, nnd the offi
cers are certain they will have u
strong case ngalnst him, for the rea
son that his victim wns wearing a red
coat and cap to lessen the chances of
any one mistaking him for a deer

Annual Football Game to Be
Played In Philadelphia Nov. 26.
Cadets Have On of Best Elevens ol
Season, While Sailor Have Only
Fair Team Contest Will Close 1910
When tho football warriors of the
Army and the Navy, representing the
United States Military academy at
West Point nnd tho Navnl academy at
Annnpolis, meet on neutral grouud In
Philadelphia Nov. 20 to fight their year
ly battle on the gridiron It will mark
the end of the football season for 1910.
The Army-Navy battle Is tho most un
certain game of tho year. It runs less
true to form. At the present writing
the gnme figures to be a walkover for
the West Pointers, who have one of
the best gridiron machines of the sea
son nnd by fnr the best that ever rep
resented the academy on the bank of
the historic Iludsou river. On tho oth
er hand, the sailors have only a fair
team, ono far below the usual fast
eleven which hulls from Annnpolis.
Still, the sailors always show 100 per
cent improvement when facing the ca
dets, and it Is not uullkcly that they
will put up their best exhibition on the
closing day of the, season.
Since 1890 tho sailors have played
fourteen games, of which one wus u
tie. The Army men have won seven
Last year the two teams did not play.
The game was called off on account of
the death of Cadet Byrne. Tho history
of the Army-Navy games Is as follows:

International Bible Lesson for Nov.
20, '10 (Matt. 26:40-56).
There Is n Octhsemano In tho path
way of every man. He may bo con
scious of It or Ignorant of It; he may
try to prepare for It, or put It out of
his mind; ho mny meet it early, or ho
may meet It late, but sooner or later
he will walk down Into Its shadow of
death, nnd sweat blood. All mankind
Is divided Into these two classes, those
that have been In GctiiEemano, and
those who are going there. There. Is
no escape from this experience. Jesus
Christ the world's redeemer, could not
avoid It The brightest nnd the best
as well as the dullest and the worst
march through those grim portals,
solitary and alone. Death Is only a
circumstance comparod with that;
when one has drank the cup of tho
garden the quintessence of bitterness
has been drained. Henceforth they
are marked men. Whether one drinks
that cup for his own sins, or for tho
Bins of others, Uie effect Is always
the same.
Greatness Not Exempt.
That Is a superficial view of life
which looks upon greatness as ex
empted from suffering, and which re
gards tears as an evidence of weak
ness. The greatest men tho world
has ever known have been the most
tenderhearted and human. GrcatnesB
does not consist In stoical indiffer
ence to suffering. Was Washington
weak when ho knelt in the snows of
Valley Forgo and prayed for tho as
sistance of the God of Battles? Was
Lincoln weak when he fell on his
face in the White House and wrestled
for victory for tho Boys In Blue? Was
William E. Gladstone, Prime Minister
of England, weak when he knelt by
tho side of a crossing sweeper to com
mend his soul to God? Was Jesus
Christ weak when the weight of the
world's woe crushed Him to the earth
1 and He "sweat as it were great drops
of blood?" If they were, then weak
ness is the most magnificent charac
teristic of tho human race, the thing
Which above all others differentiates
man from the brute creation, and al
lies him to the angels.
Crowning of Character.
Gethsemano may bo bitter, but It
Is the crowning development of char
acter. It is the wine press. It Is the
crucible. It is the threshing floor.
Ralph Connor In the "Sky Pilot" gtvea
an Illustration of the utility ofGethso
mano in human life. Nature came to
the prairie and demanded flowers of
her. And the next year, crocuses and
roses and wild sunflowers grew, but
I nature looked In vain for the colum
I bine, the clematis, and the sweet vio
I lets, and when sho Inquired the rea
I son, sho was told that tho wind was
too rough, and the sun was too hot for
such delicate blossoms. Then nature
commanded, and the lightning cleft
the rock with one swift stroke, and
into tho deep, Jagged wound a river
flowed, bearing rich black mold. Then
the birds dropped the seeds, and In
the canyon there sprang up mosses
and ferns, and lo, the columbine, tho
clematis and the sweet violets, the
favorites of nature.
Ruggcdness Without Fragrance.
Many a life Is like that. There is
broad expanse of character, but few
flowers. Ruggedness there Is, but no
fragrance. Then, suddenly lightning
flashes, jagged canyons appear, cata
clysms of upheaval take place, and
when the storm has spent Its fury and
Is passed, Instead of a dead level ex
perience, however grand, the deep
valleys are filled with richer soil, and
the fragrance of flowers fills the life.
People who have had things their
own way nre not the most agreeable
people. In many cases they are
proud, conceited, haughty. No one
goes to thom for sympathy and con
dolence In the hour of trial, they have
no knowledge of the balm for wounds.
But not so, those who have passed
through the portals of Gethsemano.
They know how to "minister to a
mind diseased." They have a look
In their eyes that begets confidence.
They have a grasp of the hand that
puts inspiration Into tho discouraged.
For Uiem to say, "I know Just how
you feel, I have been there rayaelf,"
puts hope Into the hopeless. "One
touch of nature makes the whole
world kin."
Priesthood of Help.
When Christian, in Pilgrim's Pro
gress, was passing through tho Valley
of tho Shadow of Death, overpowered
with the darkness, frightened by the
hobgoblins which leered and chatter
ed around him, almost ready to sink
down into despair, he heard the voice
of Hopoful sounding in the pathway
on before him, and cheered by tho
ringing assurance of that fellow-traveler
he plucked up heart of courage,
and soon was walking In the light.
Thus It is In life, that those who have
passed through deep and agonizing
experiences of suffering ore by that
very fact ordained to the high priest
hood of help.
Let not the dread of Gethsemano
garden shadow the llfo with gloom.
Troubles always hare alleviation.
Though the Son of Man drank there
a cup of trembling such as was never
pressed to human Hps, before or since,
It should not bo forgotten that the
hoavenly visitants flew to his relief In
the midnight. Were It not for crucial
moments In life we should never know
the refreshing sweetness of angello
Where Gypsies Come from.
Tho problem of tho origin of the
gypsies Is still unsolved. It would
seem from linguistic evidence how
ever, that they are remotely descend
ed from low-caste Hindus of north
western India. The namo gypsy Is a
corruption of Egyptian. They were
supposed to have como In the Middle
Ages from Egypt, or rather "Little
Egypt' In their own languogo they
called themselves Romany, and Rom
nt ono time was equivalent to ho
Byzantine Empire, which Included
Greece, nnd Eplrus Is said to bo llttlo
Egypt In Greece gypsies were numer
ous before the fifteenth century and
certain castles wero called gypsy cas
tles, and the tradition Is that they
wero drvlen out by the Turks. There
Is evidence to show that they came
Into Eplrus from Persia, to which
country they had been brought
from India In the fifth century. In
855 27,1)00 wero captured by tho By
zantines and brought Into Greece.
