1 Who Failed to Explain How Night
Garments Were to Be
When Put McCaffcry got n boss' Job
ho thought it duo to his advancement
n Eociety to sport n now suit While
at the men's furnishing store he no
ticed some pajamas.
"An * w'at bo ye askln' fer tiilm

"Those , " smiled the young man , "are
the latest style /In pajamas. "
"Pajamas , is ut ? An' w'at bes the
use at thlm ? "
"Why , gentlemen who pretend to
nny fashion wear them when they re
tire. " *
"Retire fr'm blzness , yo mane ? "
"No. When they retire for the
night. Go to bed. "
"Ah-h , mo young feller , that's It , Is

nablo way av shlapln * . Ol'll take a suit
av 'cm. "
"Yes , sir. What size of shirt col
lar ? "
"Sixteen an' a half. "
So the clerk put up the purchases
and Mr. McCafferty went happily
home. Ho had a little scheme to as
tonish Mrs. McCaffery. Going straight
upstairs , ho put on his new suit , hid
the pajamas In the closet , and went
'down ' stairs again , where he displayed
the new clothes to the delight of Cath-
"Ah-h-h , but , " thought Pat to him
self , "wait till ye see me pajamas. "
A little before his usual hour for goIng -
Ing to bed Pat said : "Well , Katlo ,
darllnt , Ol'll go upstairs and lay away
me garmlnts. "
Mrs. McCaffery finished the socks
and mittens she was mending , and
then followed Pat. When she got to
the bedroom door It was fastened.
"Pat w'at bes yo doln' wi * th' duro

"Whisht , Katie , Oi'll let yo in In
.about a mlnlt Oi'm gettin' up a llttlo

Two or three minutes passed but Pat
did not open the door. Katie got im
patient and thumped on it. "Pat Mc
Caffery , let mo In. What divelmlnt
'are yo up to , anyways ? " A smothered
voice spoke from within : "Just wan

Another minute passed , then Katlo
kicked the door and shouted : "Path-

Open th' dure , or Oi'll schrame f'r an

there stood Pat He surprised her ,
all right The pajama trousers had
fallen down over his feet , ho had on
his nightshirt , and the pajama shirt

and his face red with anger.
Mrs. McCaffery screamed , "Howly

A young lawyer was taking his din
ner out at a moderate priced restaur
ant the other evening. The room was
filled , but there was a couple of vacant
seats at the table at which he sat A
, blg , flashy-looking man took one of
Ithese seats. Ho ordered ham and
eggs , and proceeded to give a finished
performance of the art of sword swal-
iowlng. There was a pat of butter
in a dish , with ice all around It , In the
center of the table. The flashy-look
ing man didn't pay any attention to his
Individual butter dish. The young
lawyer looked at his vls-a-vls disgust
"Look here , my friend , " said he ,
finally , addressing the man across the
table , "do you expect other people to
partake of that butter after you have
excavated around It in that way ? "
The sword swallower looked up at
the man with the greatest good nature
in the world.
"Naw , " said he , "I'm a-goln' to eat

The Roar of China's Ducks.
Tourists In China are always sur
prised by the number of ducks they
see. There are more ducks In China
than In all the rest of the world. Their
voices are a familiar sound In every
town and country spot of the sea
coast and the Interior of the vast em
pire. Even In the large cities ducks
abound. They dodge between the
toolies' legs. They flit squawking out
of the way of the horses. Their In
dignant quack will not unseldom drown
the roar of urban commerce.
Children herd ducks on every road ,
on every pond , on every farm , on
every river. There IP no backyard
without Its duckhouse. There Is no
boat , llttlo or great , without Its duel :
All over the land there are great
duck hatching establishments , many of
them of a capacity huge enough to
produce GO.OOO young ducks every
year. Duck among the Chinese Is a
staple delicacy , It Is salted and
smoked like ham or beef.

problem of aerial navigation
has appealed to the mind of
man for centuries. In no
branch of scientific Investiga
tion has man been so enthusias
tic , so daring and so willing to risk his
life to demonstrate the validity of his
theories , whoso unsoundness has been
proved , In many cases , by the Injury
or death of the misguided theorist.
The evolution of aeronautics , from the
winged flight of Daedalus and his son
Icarus to the triumph of the Wright
brothers , Is a history full of failure
and discouragements that tells the
story of man's unceasing and stub
born fight to conquer the elements.
The men who devote their lives to
the study of aviation have- met with
many and various obstacles which
tend to place them In the eyes of the
public as visionaries hold In the spell
of a foolish dream. The deception of
the public by charlatans , the Impossi
ble claims of cranks , the use of bal
loons and parachutes for spectacular
leaps for life to attract the bucolic
multitude to country fairs and cir
cuses , together with the failure of
many projects of real scientific value ,
have , until the last decade , caused the
generality of thinking mankind to look
somewhat askance on aeronautics as
The scientific Investigation of aerial
conditions has been one of the main
factors In the success of- aerial naviga
tions and the epoch-making researches
of the late Professor Langley , which
In 1891 ho published In a book entitled
Experiments on * Aerodynamics , have
been the foundation upon which our
present day system of aerial flight Is
based. Aerodynamics as n science is
yet In Its Infancy and has not emerged
from the experimental stage , while the
theory of air pressures and resistances
on moving surfaces Is little under
stood. The problem of maintaining
stability In artificial flight has been
only approximately solved
First Efforts to Fly.
In ancient times It was believed
that to fly was , by divine decree , Im
possible. The Greeks and Romans
held that the power of flight was an
attribute only of the highest and most
powerful divinities. During the middle
ages there were many myths and
fables In circulation of certain favored
Individuals who had flown for great
distances on wings. Fralr Bacon
claimed that he had discovered the art
of flying and Albertus Magnus , the
noted phlolospher , In his work , Mlrabl-
lus Naturae , gave a reclpo for aerial
navigation. From the sixteenth to the
eighteen century there were numerous
enthusiasts who , thinking they had
discovered the secret that would ren
der thorn masters of the air , flow forth
from the tops of buildings only to bo
dashed to their death. Efforts to fly
by means of flapping wings were the
chief causes of the slow progress of
the flying art Once the Idea of soar
ing through the air a theory arrived
at by Professor Llllonthal In 1891
was discovered to bo productive of
success the science of aeronautics ad
vanced by leaps and bounds. The first
successful attempt at aerial flight was
made In the eighteenth century by a
French marquis , who endeavored to
fly across the Seine from an upper
window of his house In Paris. Ho suc
ceeded In getting almost to the oppo
site bank when he fell Into a boat and
In the seventeenth century Borolll
calculated the strength of the pectoral
muscles of birds and laid down Uio
postulate that It was Impossible lor
man to fly by use of his muscular
strength. This doctrine seems to have
been accepted , and no attempts at ar
tificial flight were made until toward
the close of the nineteenth century.
The Invention of the balloon by the
Montgolfler brothers , and their first
public ascent In 1782 , directed the at
tention of the world to this new means
of aerial navigation , and In less than
three years utter the Montgolflers"
first ascension was made the English
channel was crossed In a balloon from
Dover to Calais by Blanchard and Doc
tor Jeffries , In 1785.
Professor Langley the Pioneer.
In the same year that Professor
Lilenthal made his soaring experi
ments Professor Langlcy , In a steam
driven aeroplane model , flow across
the Potomac river , a distance of three-
quarters of a mile. Later when ho had
received appropriations from the gov
ernment for the perfection of his ma
chine ho attempted a second flight
across tlio Potomac. Ho flow for a
distance of 90 feet , when something
went wrong and the machine plunged
Into the river. Further experiments
on the part of the government were
discontinued , and while It Is known
now that the principles of the learned
professor were correct , Langlcy , at
the time , received nothing but the se
verest criticism and ridicule. Professor
ser Langley was probably the first one
10 experiment with an aeroplane driv
en by steam or any llko force and his
experiments proved conclusively that
with sufflclent speed-producing force
behind It an aeroplane could soar
great distances through the nlr. Ho Is
the pioneer of the aeroplane and re
cent aviators owe their success to the
principles which ho sot forth.
In Dayton , O. , there lived two young
men known as Wilbur and Orvlll <
Wright. They were Interested In thfc
bicycle Industry. In the early ' 90'fl
they became Interested In aviation
and reading up the theories of Llllcn-
thai they became very enthusiastic
over the art of artificial flight. In 1900
they constructed a machine and dur
ing their summer vacation on the
coast o/ North Carolina they began
experiments with a gliding aeroplane.
In 1903 they added a IC-horsopfiwer
motor to their glider and In Dccoiaber
of that year nucceeded in ranking
flights of 850 feet in 59 seconds against
a 29-mllo wind. In 1905 they made n
flight of 24 miles In 38 minutes and
from that tlmo an wcro hailed as the
first real conquerors of the air.
A New Era.
The year 1909 will go down to pos
terity as the beginning of a new era
In the nrt of aviation. The records
made show an enormous advance in
lengths of flights , heights and feats of
daring. In this country Curtlss flow
for G7 > minutes In July , and at the
official trials at Fort Myer , Orvlllo
Wright remained In the air for one
hour and 21 minutes , covcrlngi 50
miles with n passenger. Curtlss won
the Bennett speed contest at RhelmH ,
bringing the contest this year to this
country. BIcrlot made his historic
cross-channel flight on July 25 , making
a distance of 31 miles In 37 minutes.
Farnham made a duration flight of
four hours , 17 minutes and 35 seconds ,
covering 137 miles. Orville Wright ,
Latham and Paulham reached alti
tudes exceeding 1,500 feet
The events of this year are so fresh
In the memory that It la unnecessary
to recall the numerous and almost
dally conquests that occurred during
Its span. The wonderful achievements
accomplished In this year were due
not so much to a more perfect mechan
ism in the aeroplanes but to the In
creased confidence and skill of the avi
ators. During recent aviation meets
the mlle point In altltudo had been
reached by the skilful and daring
