Air Rights.
Tke extension la the use of the mil
itary balloon has led Germaa legal
aad ariMtary writers iato some later
estiBg discussions regarding the boy
ereiga rights ia the air. The entrance
of aa anted force of one nation iato
the territory of another withoat spe
cial perarisakm is forbidden; bat if a
war hallooa carrying bombs should be
driven across the German frontier
into the apper air of France, what
right would the French have to Are
poa the airship? It has been sug
gested that aa international agree-.
Mat aright be reached under which
the air above a given distance, say
two miles, should be regarded as neu
tral. Jast as the ocean three miles
front ahore Is free to all nations Of
coarse there would at once arise the
questioa whether the two miles re
ferred to sea-level or to the level of
the land above which the balloon was
sailing; or. to carry into the air the
contentions of the British respecting
headlands and sea neutrality, whether
the three-mile limit was to be meas
ured from, the top of the highest
mouataia. peaks in a given country.
If ballooning .should be pursued as a
sport, aa rich men now use the auto!
mobile, this question of rights in the
air will grow serious for every house
holder who in theory owns a pyramid
the apex of which is at the center of.
toe earth and the base on the outer
most rim of infinite, space. But if the
theory Is carried, too far, the man
would have a good case against the
stars for trespassing. on his aerial do
main. There must be some point, de
clares Youth's Companion, between
terra Anna and infinity at which space
becomes common property.

ceeding In a most satisfactory way and
there is no doubt that millions of dollars
will have gone into the pockets of the
farmers by the time navigation on the
lakes closes. Even then only a small
proportion of the wheat will have come
out. Experience has shown that the rail
ways do not carry "very much of the
wheat to the Lake Superior ports before
the freeze-up" comes, and the propor
tion will probably be smaller than usual
this year on account of the lateness of
the thrashing season.
"On the whole the prospect is a 'most
cheerful one. the likelihood being that
the satisfactory returns for the past few
days will be greatly exceeded in the com-,
tng six or seven weeks. The fact that

-Bold American Sets New Style.
An audacious Yankee, college bred,
tall, broad-shouldered, determined, in
white flannels from head to foot a
dashing figure lifted his hat to a
dark eyed Cubaa girl as he passed her
on the plaza In Havana. She smiled
back at him. He stood still and out
stretched his hand. She came up to

engagement followed and now all
Cuba is discussing the scandal, not be
cause it wasn't a good match, but
because the Cuban girl violated the
most sacred and ancient customs of
her country by flirting with a stranger
on the public street, by motoring with
him without a chaperon, and because
the Yankee, instead of doing as Cuban
lovers do, openly disregarded the tra
ditions and scored the marriage cus
toms of the island.
But for his hurried departure with
his- dark skinned bride on a honey
moon trip to New York the Yankee
lover would have paid the penalty for
his folly and his audacity. It's the
paternal bullet that makes Cupid toe
the mark in Cuba and protects the
sacred institutions of the little repub
lic the home and marriage.
By the time the audacious Yankee
and his bride reached New York the
father had relented, but ever since
that day all Cuba has been discussing
the American invasion of their cus
toms. Say Americanization Goes Too Far.
It has become a national problem
in Cuba and it soon- may become a
national issue, to be inscribed in the
platforms of the two leading political
parties, to be settled at the polls on
election day. The Cubans of all classes
are crying out that the Americaniza
tion of the island has gone too far.

Puaim G'rts' Scheel Rebel.
Ia the girls schools ia Cuba glee
clubs have been orgaaizew aad banjo
and mandolin aad guitar clubs, and
the parents are ap la aims. "Oar
senoritas have ao business to be seem
la public," they moan. "Their place
is ia the home. They are getting too
independent They are getting too
much like the 'new woman." And
to this outcry the Cuban maidens are
beginning to laugh scorafully.
"We've been behind the times,"
they protest to their .indignant moth
ers and irate fathers. "Every girl ia
the world is allowed some liberty
except the girls of Turkey, perhane.
and you wouldn't want us to be like
the-Turkish maidens, would you as
ignorant, as unsophisticated, as ab
surd? The rebellion of the girls against
their parents began when the Yankee
was forbidden to woo them in the
Yankee way; it grew into a revolution
when the good mothers and fathers of
Cuba attempted to pufan end to the
girls' glee clubs. Just what it is now
is indescribable since basketball was
introduced in one of the Americanized
schools, since the athletic American
girl made her appearance on " the
island and tantalized the senoritas by
winning soft glances from the senors;
since American candy stores and ice
cream soda parlors began to dot the
Havana streets and plazas. The
senoritas say they like the American
way. They have pleaded; they have
protested; they have threatened, but
to all their pleadings, protestations,
and threats their fathers have made a
determined answer "No!"
Senoritas Like the American Way.
But in spite of the resolute. "No,"
a few glee clubs have survived, and la
certain liberal schools new ones are
being organized. Basketball has
spread from the one Americanized
school to others, and so have the oth
er "fads' of the Americaa school.
Girls are being taught the same suh-
jects in many of the schools that the
boys are taught. Motor cars, driven
by Yankees, still spin along the ave
nues. Yankees still make love to the
Cuban senoritas whenever they get a
good chance, and the senoritas shyly
return their glances if they are sure
that papa or mamma or the 'duenna
isn't looking. And of course they still
sit behind their barred windows and
listen to the poetry and song and the
protestations of love of the Cuban
suitors, aad the duennas sit behind
the same bars and listen with them.
But it is no longer their way-rthe
senoritas like the. other way and
"many a handsome senor has lost the
hand or his loved one because he was
not bold enough or brave enough to
run the risk of a parental bullet to
satisfy his senorita's whim for Ameri
can made love.
Where it will end the triangular
struggle between the parents, the
senoritas. and the American ways no
one is ready to predict, but it is a safe
bet that the struggle has only just
begun, for already there are signs in
Cuba, in the progressive schools built
by American enterprise and capital,
of the approaching introduction of co
education. And that, as everybody in
Cuba knows, will be the last straw.
It will become a question of obedience
or of open rebellion against parental
authority, aBd will the senoritas win
or will the palm of victory fall to the
solicitous mothers and fathers of
Cuba who are clinging so technically
to the old traditions and customs?
It will take an election to settle the
question, say the wisest of the Cu
bans. Imagine an election, a national
election, to decide how girls shall
make love!
