-.'."'haVe1 .heard- from Bunyan. Andt the
- ,: '-place "wh"ere-this way. left the road that
r -" Pilgrim "was going there was a house
" "..where -Evangelist was trying to gather
:.". ."In 'those -who"- were with Pilgrim and
-.; explain" to "them the.roll so that-taey
- - . m'i-ght go on the King's Highway to the
.- '' .Celestial city." And I heard Mr. Kederm
1 .L W tU It- w 'J I
tell them that while Evangelist might
imagine he was doing good it were bet- '
ter to go on their easy way than, to Call
in with the fanatics who were tryins'to .
climb .that hard hill and! leave behind
them all the delights they might ejoy."
Thea I saw that they passed by without
stopping-' to hear what words Evangel-
1st might speak to them. And so they
escaped any pricks of conscience.
" And' I saw-after this that they came
to a-place where the atmosphere from
the Valley-of Humiliation began to
blow chill upon .them. And their
hearts -began to sink and' "goblins be
gan .to appear to them. But Mr. Mod
ern "Thought - belonged to a company
who had builded a railroad entirely
around that " valley, called ' Constant
Amusement-railroad. It is luxuriously
furnished and' its coaches are" equipped
with theatrical exhibitions and dancing
pavilions'.till-'if takes away all thought
of the discomforts of the Valley of Hu
miliatibn. .'Pilgrim and' all .who' were,
with him -took this railroad and passed'
the" ser.ious-valley" without so much as
a -single encounter "with, any evil or so
inuc.Ti-.asa dream of Apollyon. " It. is
said" that he has never interfered with '
. the running of that road, though if has
laree-.numbers of travelers; 'On SUn--
days; Mr:. Modern Thought, .-talked to
them' of a religion-of sunshine in dppo"
fiition to the" sadness of those who. pass
.through the. Valley ".of-" Humiliation
where" the. old way used to go.
:.'.-At.the end.6t.the C. A. It. R." was a.
station fitted up with telescopes, labeled
"Modern Ideas.''' "through which the pil-.griins'-were
permitted" to look- at -what
they were -told was the Celestial city.'
There"was a large and' beautiful coun-
try.intb which everybody who had ever,
-jived was received.- .-There were all the"
pleasures of. sight and sound and sense
''With -which men. were.fascinated in the
City of "Destruction--and. on -their .pil-.
-grimage. Pilgrim learned after -he had
'reached'-.the end -of his journey, that
these -pictures. were painted on the end
.of the telescopes. - .".;""- ;"-.
And after, this the pilgrims went o'n
.tLeir way" making, merry among them-seIve's.:-And-.

But .the. old" "a-ay "of. helping others by
giving up'soinething was a hard way
and "the pilgrims' stopped-"it'.the Vanity
Fair, and took some '.booths and gave
some "charity- ''perfqrmairc"es'-'-for the
good -.of "other pilgrims, who were com
ing in-a second-class railroad carriage,
called a "Mission." Pilgiim ..ran" a

After' this I beheld that they went on.

till he came to.the'end of .his journey"
and his" friends would "not. let him'think
of the dark river which "ran across his
'way till his .feet were in'the waters.
Then, he passed out of my sight "for. a
time.till I-saw"hi'ra on the other-side.
And. he-was" met there My attendants

Should any one-be tempted to call this
an unprogressive method, I will merely
.say that the pudding.- when completed,
is- all that could be desired, and if the
proof of the pudding is in the eating,
I suppose one may claim, without be
ing accused of -presumption, that the.
proof of the cooking is in the pudding.
The only drawback to this method is
that one cannot have more th.in 0ae
baked dish-for dinner.

THE RETIRED b.UR6LAft. '

"Speaking of cimckes, says the.rftr
tired burglar in the New Tikk Sua; ts
easiest; softest, smoothest snap t evec
struck was in a house in a small
in Rhode Island. There was a tkander
storm coming up as I went along to
ward" the house, and just as I got there
"it began to sprinkle. Br the time I"4
got inside it was coming down pretty
hard, and t was glad to be under shel
ter, for I hadn't had any supper either,
and when I got 'into the dining room
I thought I'd get something to eat. .Thi
sideboard was locked and the key car
ried upstairs, but a little jimmy opened
the door as easy, as a knife would ope.
a-pie. - I set out "a little snack -ok -the
table and sat down and ate It comfort
ably, with" the rain pouring down out
side: If there's anything I like it's to
hear a "storm a-ragin outside when
you've settled down all .snug and com
fcrtable within." But here was some
thing i hadn't counted on. The .thun
der .was roaring ;and" plunging like a
L dozen earthquakes bustm. -down-
through the- sky. and it kept the" hou39
in a tremble 'all the time.- I knew no-
body could " sleep in that . thunder.
They'd be sure to be all awake, but here
I was, and I hated to lose a nightand
after-I'd waited a little and the storm
didn't show .any. signs of lettinr up I
thought I'd go. ahead and see anyhow.
Th'e first room .1 -looked into upstairs
settled the whole "business. Over in
one corner of this room, beyond. a bid,'
I saw a woman standing in front. of an
open closet door. Two children hopped
out of bed, and the mother pushed them
into the closet- and then crowded in
herself add pulled -the door shut tight,
It was all very simple; husband away,"
no" help:- two children sleeping-in "an
.other 'room, woke" up" by thunder, came
."into their mother's" room all-'-scared;
mother puts" children: in closet and gets
in herself, as lots" of folks do in thun
der storms. And 'then I walk over and
.turn the key fn the Iock'.and th'e're'you
are; no danger.of their coming out till
the-storm 'is over anyway,- and just as
well to-be"" sure about It, and then I" just
quietly "go through the house ..It isn't
big and, doesn't. take long, and. I come
back before the storm is over and un-
i lock .the "close't'door-again'-and skip,, and
that's all there is to it.". . - -'

were bat proplsecs
of .a later age. They
placed a wagon la
the heavens, and
the.. strange, amor
p b o u s creation
which strikes the
reader's eye on this
page is a confirma
tion of their poetic foresight.
Th Illustration is not. intended: to
represent the famous wooden horse of
Troy, nor the. hybrid gods of "ancient
Babylen" or Nineveh. Neither .is it
taken .from some geological treatise
the reconstructed remains of some ex
tinct species of .a remote" period. No,
wondering reader, it constitutes an Idea
for a universal motor vehicle, designed
to skim along the ground,- to wing its
way .through the air, and to navigate
river,"-lake or 'sea -as occasion may re
quire. This. is the cherished scheme of
a learned natural philosopher and. in
ventor," who for many years .has been
studying '.the problem of aerial 'flight
and terrestrial locomotion..
The inventor believes "that" "previous
investigators in aerial navigation have
erred in adopting as their prototype in
nature the fish Instead of -the bird.
They have been trying to build air
ships propelled by screw 'propellers and
similar devices, or to .utilize .balloons,
which expose a large surface" of .resist
ance to 'the .wind and are, .therefore, at
its mercyi ' The bird, on the. other hand,
goes with or against the current.".
The little gosling' can teach the phil
osopher -a valuable lesson in' land locomotion.-
for even before it - can fly
through the air, it accelerates its prog
ress, in the. water and on the land by" the'
use of Its wings. Yet up .to the present
time; no .student of' the motor vehicle'
'problem seems" to "have thought of apr-
A UNIVERSAL VEHICLE FOR
p'lyihg mechanical wings to the propul
sion of "vehicle's.- .' .:."
- .So, discarding' all-"previous theories,
this "inventor begins by making a'n-in-
-dependent study.of the wings of insects
and birds, with the" idea of determining
".how they fly, and what i3 the precise
sustaining "power of the'ir wings.", in
.looking over 'the winged kingdom his-
attention was" arrested "by. the- duck,
which "waddles on the land, swims in
the -water and flies in. the air. The
whistle-winged duck' in-particular is a
wonderful example of wing- "power.
Though- its. wings .'-are comparatively
smaller than .those of other fowIs,.they
carry its body at a very, high velocity, at
the- ratio of. about three to. five pound3
of sustaining power" to each .'square foot
of wing surface Spme. insects wmgs
show even more -remarkable sustaining
power than" this. The duck, seeming to,
afford -the best example for a universal
.vehicle," the inventor takes this fowl as
hie moripi 'pJonzatlne the body some-1
whatto suit it to hispurpose. '
Thuipnffthof'the'bodvof the vehicle-
feet and the height six feet." 'The
weight is. estimated at 400 pounds, and
it is" intended to carry four persons, in
front ' Is the elevated outlook, from
which 'the pilot can govern the mpve
'ments of the .vehicle," and back of this is
a passageway for ingress "and egress. ".
Five pairs of "wings, four or five- feet
"wide and five to seven feet long, giving
a total of about 275 feet of surface, -ex--tend-along
the uppr part of the ma
chine. These wings have an aluminum
frame work, supporting prepared palm
f leaf or- other like material of extreme
toughness and lightness, and under
neath each "wing are eight or ten para-
"cbute valves or oval underflaps. acting
like the feathers under" a bird's wing.
which give momentum when the wing
is raised." and buoyancy with momen
tum when the wing is lowered.
Oscillating shoulder joints. "with in-
clining' air-cushion pivot joints near'
the shoulders for active propulsion, at
tach the wings to the. body of the vehi
cle! From a close computation of the
wing surface, and a" comparison with
the buoyancy of bird and' insect wings,
the inventor concludes that the vehicle
would sustain a .weight of from 1,000 to
-j 1,400 pounds.
. But the wings are not the only .curi
ous thing about this modern Pegasus, if
such it may be called. Passing over
the three wheels one in front and two
behind which are provided for land
travel, we come to "the three "vibrating
and revolving fins two at. the rear and
cue in -front to- propel arid guide the
vehicle in water and -also in air. These
fins,- which are modeled after the fins
of a fish, are made of flexible metal and
are" about three or four feet in length.
When not in use L e.. on. land they
1 are to be folded up against the body of
the vehicle, but in the air or water they
drop below' the body, and are actuated
sideways by the same power that mores
the wings, thus" guiding the vehicle in
aay direction, as a fish alters its course
by the use of its fias.

that the combustion' will be perfect, and

'paratus would not be over 20 pounds."
and' from" three to six hofse power could
be developed, according to speed -and
the .resistance . of the.- air. . -Fuel and
water needed-for a -day's journey, the
inventor believes, would scarcely ex
ceed 200 "pounds, in weight. .
.. The wings would act with a vibrating
disc- motion, and bpth wings and fins
would be". double-geared.. so that-they
could be shifted at-any desired angle, i
In case storm or. contrary winds are en
countered, the' pilot is'suppoced to' either
