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. PLAYER WASN'T MURDERED. An Accident Caused Death, Jury Finds.

"MAKES MEN SLAVES," HE SAYS "If Men De Forced to Work Whether They Pleaio op Not the Laboring 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. HUNTER KIUS A MAN. Bloodhounds on Trail of Careless Shooter. 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 JURY CAN'T CONTINUE PROBE. New Jersey Court of Appeals Decides Paokera Don't Have to Show Books. Trenton, N. J., Nov. 15. The state court of errors and appeals reversed the decision of Supreme Court Justice Swayze directing the National Pack ing company and the other big pack ing concerns to produce their book before the Hudson county grand Jury.

Cadets Have On of Best Elevens ol Season, While Sailor Have Only Fair Team Contest Will Close 1910 Campaign, 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 AT TOP UYA.TT, AMI QDAIITE11I1 ACK I.OWEI1 CLAT, NAVY HALFBACK. tie.

Terry Edwards' Long Career. Terry Kdwards fought the four hun dred nnd fiftieth battle of his ring ca reer at tho Bergen Beach Athletl club. New York, recently. The one time Idol of Brooklyn, who still main tains ho is tho 105 pound champion, is still quick nnd nggresslve. He put up a masterly bout for four rounds ngalnst Lnvlgne, n clever young boxer, who did his utmost to tiro tho veteran. The tout was n good draw, however. Lacrosse Team to Visit England. There is a possibility that the crack lacrosse team of the Crescent Athletic club of New York will mnke a trip to Great Hrlti. next spring.

DAVISON Rutland, Vt PC4;CC-KH-C1-C THE KING IN THE CRUCIBLE. 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 mlnlBtratlons. 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. Such seeina tho probably story of their descent Christian Herald. YOU SHOULD FEAR BOWEL POISON.
