AW EAnLY MACHINE
"IT'S A WORLD-BEATER!"
Remarkable Invention by a. Portu
;ueie Which Failed to Fly
An exchange points out that flying
machines are not so ?ieio, quoting from
the Evening Post of December 20-22,
1709, which gives an interesting descrip
tion of a flying ship then lately invented
by a Portuguese priest. Unfortunately,
for the glory of Portugal, it did not fly,
as was expected, 200 miles in twenty
four hours, or at all. In order that the
deeply scientific among our readers may
understand the cause of its failure we
quote a few extracts from its specifi
cations. The ship was fitted in the first
place, with "sails wherewith the air is to
be divided." It had also two pairs of bel
lows "which must be blown when there
is no wind." At opposite ends of the
hull were "the Globes of Heaven and
Earth containing in them the Attractive
Virtues." These served as covers to
"two Loadstones placed in them upon
Pedestals, to draw the ship after them."
We have not yet exhausted the list of
motive powers carried by this remark
able invention. Over the whole was "a
cover made of Iron Wire in form of a
Net, on which are Fastened a good num
ber of Large Amber Beads which by a
Secret Operation will help to keep the
Ship Aloft. And by the Sun's heat
(certain Mats) that line the Ship will be
drawn toward the Amber Beads."
It is strange that a flying ship fitted
with so many alternative appliances
should have failed to fly at all. Possibly
the Amber Beads tried to fly one way,
the Globes another, the wind and the
bellows worked in yet other directions,
and thus stable equilibrium resulted.
JBaby Party at Berkshire
A Baby party at The Berkshire, Wed
nesday, was enjoyed not only by cos
mopolitan youngsters from many lands,
but the entire household as well. At
tracting more than usual attention were
Mr. II. P. Osgood as "Buster Brown"
and Miss Ruth Dace as "Mary Jane".
Mr. E. II. Van Sickler was a clever
Scotch lad and Miss Vera Marsh a dainty
Japanese. Miss Mollie Abbe in blue
pinafore, Miss Anna Adams as a little
girl, Miss Alice King as a lass of eight,
Miss Emma Abbe as a school girl, Miss
Eleanor Abbe as a boy, Mr. Thaxton
Eaton as a Spanish lad and Mr. R. II.
Pepper as a colored boy, were all ex
cellent. The program in the evening in
cluded "high jumping" for luscious
doughnuts and the dancing of the Vir
ginia reel, at the close of which punch
was was served by "Mammy Betsy"
(Miss Edith White of Richmond.)

It's a world-beater !"
was the decisive reply, referring to the
seventh annual Spring golf tournament
for which two hundred and forty-one
entries were recorded. In reply to a
similar query by wire to Secretary Wat
son of the United States Golf Associa
tion was this answer: "Last year's
National Amateur largest I know of, two
hundred and seventeen entries."
Naturally Pinehurst in general is
some pleased !

.32, .35,. 351 and .401 Calibers
There is nothing to take your mind off the game if you
shoot a Winchester Self-Loading Rifle. The recoil does the
reloading for you, which places complete control of the gun
under the trigger finger, and permits shooting it as fast as
the trigger can be pulled. These rifles are made in calibers
suitable for hunting all kinds of game. They are safe, strong and
simple in action; easy to load and unload and easy to take down.
Ask your dealer to show you one, or send to the Winchester Repeating
Arms Company, New Haven, Connecticut, for a catalogue describing
