THE CITIZEN, FRIDAY, OCTOBEB 13,
Figures Show Lower Average
During First Hail of 1911.
85 KILLED SINGE 1908.
Each Death Represents a Mileage of
About 3,500 Miles Flying Becoming
Safer as the Soiencs Progresses.
Contributory Causes of Accident.
That aviation Is becoming safer ns
the science progresses Is shown by a
series of Interesting averages compiled
by an English writer, who has worked
them out matheraatlcnlly. Taking the
fatalities of-1010, the writer estimates
that each death represented a mileage
of about 3,500 miles. During the year
there were recorded 307 nights of over
mi hour in duration, and the death
roll was twenty-nine. This year, be
tween Jan. 1 nnd July 31, no fewer
than C07 flights of over an hour's dura
tion were placed on record, and tho
fatalities numbered thirty-five. ThU3
the nverage has bettered itself to tho
extent that each death represents 4,000
miles of actual flight.
An analysis of the accidents of 1010
shows that the contributory causes of
nccldeut may be classified ad follows:
Faulty construction, mistakes of tho
nvlator, atmospheric disturbances and
accidents due to spectators. An exam
ination of the records of this year's
fatalities discloses the fact that the
first contributory cnuso has almost en
tirely disappeared, and from first place
it has fallen to second or even third.
Tho analysis shows that weakness of
construction has practically been cllm.
liiated, while tho experience being
gained every clay will enable aviators
to deal with the varying atmospheric
conditions to bo encountered in tho
List of Fatalities.
Tho following Is a list of the eighty
five aviators who have been killed
from Sept. 10, 100S. up to Sept. 28,
1011. Of this number thirty-two were
of French nationality, twelve Iwing Of

WM. D. B. AiNEY
Candidate for Congress in the Bradford,
Wyoming, Susquehanna & Wayne District.
The above gentleman, accompan
ied by District Attorney Denney of
Montrose, was in town last Friday
having been called here to attend a
meeting of the Wayne county candi
dates nominated last Saturday on the
Republican ticket. During his brief
stay, whli U was only over night, he
called upon a few friends, among
them several of the nowspaper fra
ternity, to which at one time he be
longed, having beon connected with
the Montrose Independent Republi
can. Mr. Ainey Is an exceedingly
ipproachable, affable man, and at
once impresses those who tor tne
first time meet him, that there Is
omething about his make-up which
has In it the better attributes of a
man. Voluntarily speaking of the
late Geo. W. Kipp, he paid him tho
high compliment for having Inher
ently possessed great human-heart-cdness
or sympathy with humanity.
While lie never In any way tried to
diEguise nny of his characteristics he
naturally inclined to showing help
fulness toward men. This, Mr, Ain
ey said was the secret of his in
fluence 'over and strength among
men. And while Mr. Ainey was
saying these Kind words of a depart
ed man, the impression came to us
strongly that, in this respect, ho Is

once told himself: "I was going aboard
tho yacht and found that 1 had noth

pier for a match. In return for tlio
courtesy I handed him one of my ci

He accepted it promptly.

Tho Duel In Germany.
Tho campaign against tho duel In
Germany seems to havo halted. Baron
Oswald von Itlchthofen, an officer of
the guards, had a quarrel with Baron
Wllhelm von Gaffron nbsut a money
transaction, which resulted in a duel.
Tho two officers, with seconds, phy
sicians nnd Invited friends, met In tho
Jungfernhelde park, and Von Gaffron
was killed. A military court convened
nt Schonberg imposed a sentence of
two years' imprisonment on the sur
viving duelist. Tho code provides that
"a person who kills his opponent in a
duel Is liable to a term of imprison
ment varying from two to fifteen
rears." and the Ileht sentence is looked
member of the class of '79. After
returning home ho took a two years'
preparatory course in a South Beth
lehem school, entering Lehigh uni
verslty. In his sophomore year he
decided to take up the study of law
and entered the oiflce of Blakeslee
& Davies in Montrose. He was a
careful, hard working student and
was admitted to the county bar in
August, 1887. He became a part
ner with hiB uncle the late E. L,
Blakeslee, and rapidly became
known as a brilliant lawyer and a
wiso counselor. Dr. Blakeslee was
reckoned as one of the keenest crim
inal lawyers in this section of the
state and since his death Mr. Ainey
has proved an able successor, build
ing up a reputation that has made
him much sought after where a life
was involved and for many years
tnere has hardly been an Important
case for trial In the county courts
with which he has not been connect

logical, with an earnest conviction
that sways his audiences, ho reveals
a masterful mind. Krom isya until
1899 he served as chairman of the
Republican county committee.

sociated with religious work in his

Funnel-less Ocean Liners.
In modern ocean giants tho funnel
prepares to follow tho abandoned
mast. Tho first funnel-less ship, a
nnmburg-Americnn liner of 0,500 tons,
is already afloat, the second Is under
way, and tho third is being planned.
This new typo of vessel Is driven, like a
motorboat, by Internal combustion en
gines. JJer fuel is petroleum, and It
is utilized by spraying it into con
densed air and pxplodlng tho mixture
in heavy cylinders. Tho spraying, as
In tho case of an automobile engine, is

need for firemen.

Writing on Ihe secret tricks of base
ball coaching In tho big leagues in the
American Magazine, Hugh S. Fullcrton
says that the science of coaching re
sulted from tho old stylo coachers be
ing forbidden t& scream abuso at the
pitchers. Then It was that the coach
ers set themselves to discover the plans
of tho opposing team. Ho writes:
"In ono season Fielder Jones, then
leader of the White Sox, learned to de
tect by tho preliminary movements of
tho catchers every time they were ex
pecting a pitch-out. I believe this dis
covery gave the White Box a cham
pionship and a world's pennant. Op
posing catchers complained bitterly
that tho Sox wero bad base runners
nnd that they persistently ran at tho
wrong time nnd played hit and run on
tho wrong ball. Tho secret of it was
that Jones, coaching at third, was tip
ping to runners at first and to batters
that tho opposing pitcher was going to
pitch wide to catch the runner steal
ing, and the runner therefore changed
plans and stood still."
Laundry Work In Korea.
Tho Korean mother, anxious to se
cure her daughter's successful mar
riage, makes certain that the young
woman becomes a good laundress, for
ability in this direction counts for
more than benuty with the Korean
swain, lie does not even demand that
his wife Should bo more than a fairly
good cook, but she must be able to
keep fresh and spotless tho linen gar
ments which every one, from prince to
peasant, wears. In spite of tho fact
that every article of wearing apparel
is of white linen, not even tho humble
flatiron is used in Korea, nnd tho at
tempts to introduco such occidental
fads as washing machines nnd mg

HELPFUL HINTS ON HAIR
Scalo nnd Hair Troubles Generally
Caused by Carelessness.
Dandruff is n contagious dlseasn caus
ed by a microbe which also produces
baldness. Never use a comb or brush
belonging to some ono else. No matter
how cleanly the owner mny be. these
nrtlcles may be infected with microbes,
which will infect your scalp. It Is far
easier to catch hnlr microbes than it Is
to get rid of them, and a single stroke
of an Infected comb or brush may well
lead to baldness. Never try on any
body else's hat. Many a hat-band is
n resting place for microbes.
If you happen to bo troubled with
dandruff, itching scalp, falling hair or
baldness, wo havo a remedy which we
believe will completely relieve these
troubles. We are so euro of this that
we offer it to you with the understand
ing that it will cost you nothing for the
trial if it does not produce the results
we claim. This remedy la called Rex-
all "03" Hair Tonic. We honestly be
lieve it to be the moat scientific rem
edy for scnlp and hair troubles, and
we know of nothing else that equals
it for effectiveness, because of the re
sults it has produced in thousands of
Rexall "03" Hair Tonic is devised to
banish dandruff, restore natural color
when its loss has been brought about
by disease, and make the hair natural
ly silky, soft and glossy. It does this
because it stimulates the hair follicles,
destroys the germ matter, and brings
about a free, healthy circulation of
blood, which nourishes the hair roots,
causing them to tighten and grow new
hair. We want everybody who has
nny trouble with hair or scalp to know
that wo think that Rexall "03" Hair
Tonic Is the best hair tonic and restor
ative In existence, and no one should
scoff at or doubt this statement until
they have put our claims to a fair test,
with the understanding that they pay
us nothing for the remedy If it does
not give full and complete satisfaction
in every particular. Two sizes. r0
