11a has wrought nut Uia machine on hla
draughting, board scores of times, testing;
out mathomattcally, approving and re
jecting until the perfect mcwiel he has so
long seen lth his mental vision la ready
to be assembled, a1 the assembling; Is
now In It rinlhlns RtaRes on the grassy
liiwn In the; rear of bis home.
The machine Is a monoplane of the
IUeriot type, resombllng It about In the
degree that the heavy-headed locust re
sembles the flashing dragon lly. The main
lateral body la twenty-threa feet long, and
the wings have a spread of twenty-two
feet and a depth of seven feet. The ele
vating planes are six by four feet In dimen
sions, and the whole Tuachlno weighs, ex
clusive of the engine, 120 pounds.
Ortalla of Construction.
Every iunture of 'it Is of special con
structton,i with- no nfttngetnents and, as
a combination la patentable. TCvery part
of the frame la- triangularly shape, the
strongest possible formation. The wood'
work Is yellow spruqe and every adjust
Ing buckle of original pattern and tough
est steel. The wings have all, their strength
centered In eight beam with eighteen ribs
on each side. The ribs are set transversely
four Inches apart, and are. a quarter of
an Inch thick. The curvature of the planes
Is moulded by the placing of the beams
The seat Is below the main planes, and by
an arrangement that Mr.. Brown docs not
want to have described at present the
machine automatically balances Itself at
The feature which Mr. Brown thinks
may prove revolutionary. Is the method of
control. It Is all brought about by the
manipulation of one lever, a 'single central
double-acting device. The wlngu are rigid
and have no warping device to preserve
"As a high apeed machine, this will
rank with the Curtlss," said Mr. Brown
"The tame power will drive it very much
faster than . the Curtlss. for I have less
resistance than any other machine. An
other great advantage I will have over
all others Is the ease with which I will
allglrt.; The beat ."control of the Curtis Is
at highest speeds, fcontrol Is lost when
speed Is reduced to ' alight, and thl
the reason that the Curtlns machines are
smashed so often when they coma to the
ground. In my machine equilibrium la pre
served automatically at the slower speed
required for ey landing. The slower
the speed the more Impossible la It to be
overturned, and I should alight alwayi
without the least damage. The elevating
planea are placed alxteen feet In the rear
of the main planes. In almost all of the
others, aa you know, this device la far I
advance. It will be as easy to steer aa
bicycle or an automobile.
Mr. Brown expects to make hla trial
flight this week. He Will drive It with
twenty-horea power, four-cylinder engine,
concerning "which he Is saying nothing.
Mr. Brown Is a young man of about 28,
quiet almost to the point of taciturnity.

CORINTH, Miss., Oct 10,-Colonel Theo

to Hot Springs, Ark., today made more
speeches than on any other day of his

convention, stood the strain well, and he
Is inclined to believe now that talking

Colonel Roosevelt did not talk politics.
He was urged to amplify that part of his
speech In Atlanta last night which re
ferred to the tariff and the plank of the
New York state republican platform, which
deals with the tariff, but would not do so
"I have nothing to add to what I said
last night," Colonel Roosevelt said, "ex
cept that In my speeches at Saratoga and
Syracuse I said about the, tariff and the
dmlnlstratlon exactly what I said In
Sioux City, Ia., Sioux Falls, B. D Cin

In silent wonderment at the ex-president.
The largest crowds were out at Chatta
