INVENTS WORKMAN'S CAP.

Mrs. John II. Miller of this city has
Invented a wonderful llreman's cap,

It was Impossible to go near the door
without piotection and he rem lined
thirty-live minutes with no possible
chance of getting air from the oiiflde.
A llreinan connected with No. 1 com
pany enteied the smokehouse without
the contrivance and remained eight soe
onds before coming Into the fresh air,
half suffocated and gasping for br'Uth.
It was then that Mr. Miller tried the in
vention and It worked like a charm.
The cap Is made of lino strips of as
bestos conformed to tho shape of the
head. It Is held fast In place by a 1 lib
ber band, making It nlr-tlght. Its
weight Is only sixteen ounces and It Is
so constructed ns to (liable a person
to carry It on the arm without liuon
venlence. There is a strip of mica be
fore the eyes, so no Inconvenience Is
suffered in this respi et. A silk sponge,
thioiigh which no smoke cm enter, but
which permits the Ingirss of air in
plentiful quantities, (Ills an aperture
for the mouth, and when properly ad
justed the cap is so simple that Its i.lll
cacy is apparent nt a glance.
When It Is understood that firemen

New York World.
These are facts, and heie Is an accur
ate picture of the machine, primed for
the Hist time.
At Occoquuii, Va., not far from Wash
ington, on the day aboe mentioned,
Piofessor Samuel P. I.ungle.v. of the
Smithsonian institute, sent up the
model of a living machine driven by a
miiuII steam i ngine. The machine lose

mile. The fm I at this point gave out
and the machine gently sank to the
ground. The engine was restocked and
n siconil illght was made as successfully
as the Hi st.
I'iorKor Alexander drahani Hell, the
Inventor of the telephone, was a witness
of thise (lights, and describes theni
o-rr his own signature. Theie can be
neither mistake nor deception about it.
This simple statement conies to the
Win Id to-day much as tho announce
ment of Stephenson's locomotive en mo
to the world three-quarters of a cen
tury ago. Then as now It was Inipos-
rlblo to understand vvhat changcR tho
new Invention was destined to bring
ibout. Hut to-day we are on the thres
hold of a more Important application
ol science even than the steam locomo
tive. Professor Langley's (lying ma
chine that will lly Introduces a revolu
tion in transportation more radical
:han that which any Invention has
wrought in the past, because at last
laud and water transportation is
transferted to the frlctionless air.
For the World Professor Hell has
lesciibed Piofessor Langley's Inven
tion as follows:
"Last Wednesday, May fi. I witnessed
i very remarkable experiment with
Professor Langley's aerodrome on the
Potomac river. Indeed, It seemed to me
Hint tho experiment was of such his
torical Importance that it should be
made public. I should not feel at liber
ty to give an account of all tho details,
but tho main facts I have Professor
Langlej's consent for giving you, nnd
they are as follows:
"The aerodrome, or 'Hying machine,'
In question was of steel, driven by a
steam engine. It resembled an enor
mous bird, soaring hi the air with ex
treme regularity in large curves, sweep
ing steadily upward In a spiral path,
the spirals with a diameter of perhaps
100 yards, until It i cached a height of
ibout 100 feet 111 tho air, at the end of n
-oiirso of about half it mile, when tho
steam guvo out. tho propellers which
had moved It slopped, and then, to my
further surprise, the wholo, Instead of
tumbling down, settled ns slowly and
gracefully as It Is possible for any bird
to do, touching tho vvnter without any
damage, and was Immediately picked
out and was ready to be tried again."
The Hying machine carries a small
steam engine of one-horse power. The
whole contrivance weighs twenty-five
pounds. Its light steel framework holds
extended horizontally three shoots of
thin canvas, ono above tho other. Tho
length all over is fifteen feet. The en
gine runs two propellent.
Tho machine could lly 100 miles, or
even a much creator distance with n
sufficient supply of steam. Hut the
pmnll engine employed Is not of the
condensing pattern and has no means
of using tho same water over and over.
Professor l.angley will soon construct
a fiyer of largo size, which will carry
a proper mechanical equipment nnd bo
capable, of extended Illght. The ono
depcrlbcd Is only a model for experi
mental purposes. Tho Inventor baa not

qulied for a long irlp.
In short the dllllcultles ore gieally
lessenul by the i nlaigetuelit of the ma
chine: A llyer of Mils t.vpe eighty feel
long would have a Milllclcut area of
planes to sustain a powerful steam en
glue and a car lair.vlng a number of
passengers. The steam may be obtain-
en it nm liquid fuel or by burning gas
that has hi en compressed and loaded
lulo e.vllnilibal reset volts of thin
drawn steel tubing. Such a rc-crvoir
can be made to bold ion times its cubi
cal contents of gas. and Hiiih the air
ship Is able to lake un board a great
quantity of ftnl in a very small com
pass. The toiir-hoiso power I'opiland
engine now on the niaiket weighs only
ivvontj-soviii pound ami occupies a
lloor space of but ten liuhcx squaie, its
height being twenl.v-oiie Inchon.
Professor l.angley ealls his machine
an "noiodionic ' or air limner. Ii trav
els at the rate of eighteen miles an
hour. The Inventor icganls II as mi
Important point of advantage thai P. Is
able to go so slowly. This will be un
derstood when It Is explained Hint the
sustaining power requited by the air
ship becomes less In pnipoitlon to the
Inciease of lis speed. A man can skate
over thin ice vv lili h v. mi Id not bear him
if he stood still. The faster he goes
the tlilnne: the Ice needed to bold him
up. If he go fast enough he could run
over the suif.ue of a pond of water.
The same piluelple applies to the aeio
droine in its piogiess thioiigh the at
inospheie. If the iioiodronio is able to sustain
itself when il.ving only elghtien mile
an hour, It can carry twice as much
weight when going twice as fast. Pntll
lecently It has been Imagined that the
atniosplieie was not don-o enough for
propelleis to n.-t upon It effcotlvily.

This belief Is now exploded. Pro
fessor Langley's experiments have
proved that it Is only necessary (o make
tho piopellers levolve fas! enough In
order to folic the airship along at a
rate almost Indefinitely fast. Also, lie
has dlscovoied that the resistance
ofreied by the air to the aerodrome Is

taliKd by tho airship of this pattern

to traverse space at a rate far exceed
ing the Illght of the fastest birds, and
a Journey across the continent will be
nceoinpllM'hcil In scarcely more than a
few consecutive twinklings.
The theory of the aerodioine Is
wholly dilieient from that of the bal
loon, i'nllko the latter, it does not aim
to iloat by icason of being lighter than
tho air. Professor Langley's machine
weighs about J.OOO times as much as
the air which supports It. H relies upon
the air cm rents, as docs a soaring bird.
In fact, its pilnclplo Is derived from
the suggestions offered by birds of the
vulture type. There Is no better ox-
ample of snaring than tho vulture,
which, though a large and heavy ani
mal, will remain for a whole day In
the air without a single wing-beat, Hlm

plies: to the nerodrome. Suppose that
such an airship Is on Its way from New
York to Chicago at a speed of fifty
miles an hour, tho dny being perfectly

progress of tho vessel very slightly, be
cause the latter presents merely the
edge of its planes to tho breeze. The

upward n tilfle at tho front, so that tho
powerful air current is made to exercise
Its lifting power and keep tho craft

comes, the planes are governed accord
ingly. Tho wing planes on either side
nre slanted slightly upward, so that any

It would i airy suspended beneath It a

ten years hence we may not see such a
