Space With Dream of a Fog on moor's Moors Convict No 6800 whose name was James Shelburne was working on tho moor farm with others when the fog came up H came rolling across tho wide moor like a billow of smoke from a cannon's mouth One minute there was sunshine all with the hor lion five miles in another thi were out and Into line and no eye could penetrat of ten feet Shol bis spade and ran HI at by other convicts by guards and he ran agalns over two or three bo escaped That Is he got Irom the bunch of prisoners together like so many cattle while tho yards sent to the prison for rein L to march them in have been few escapes Irom woor No man over got away aided by ho fog James Shelburne had for for five years sends her love four years ho had been Immured the sumo walls He bad dono his best to gain the confidence of the prison officials and he had ed it If ho softly raved and cursed at night tempted to a times over none of the warders It By day he was patient respectful and uncomplaining And so It came to pass that when the spring muster roll was made up of the men who were to work on tho farms outside the gates the warden Put down 0800 He Is one of the most trusty of the lot He wouldn't leave us If he could Out In the glad sunshine and free air Shelburne worked Industriously Whoever else was complained of and disciplined he was not The men who leaned on their rifles and watched looked upon this particular convict as a contended man He concealed his did not hear his tal curses that the coming of the fog was delayed Day after day he went out with the gang and hoped for It Evening after evening he marched back lo the prison with a sort of hel raging In his heart It was 10 o'clock of a forenoon when the cry of Fog reached his ears He drew in his breath and straightened up Next ment he seemed to be blotted off the face of the earth Ho knew nothing of the country of the towns and the highways but he ran blindly through the fog It would take thirty minutes tho men into the prison and cull roll and ascertain who was missing Then would come the alarm and pursuit The one Idea was to get as far away as possible before the alarm sounded He ran blindly He fell at few yards but he arose to on again Presently he came to a highway A wagon was passing and Its driver shouting warnings to those who migh be coming from the opposite direction Shelburne was almost run down the driver did not see him behind the wagon and In There was a lot of empty bags from the morning and he ed as as he The be sounded and the driver a shout but the fog held V Dartmoor fog last ten ites or two After an hour of teady team turned off the main Then Shelburne softly lipped to the ground broke his way hrough the hedge and was running across a meadow when he came upon cottage The fog was beginning to rise The man found his way to well and satisfied his thirst and then about him It was a secluded lace far from tho main road He icard no noise from the house and he vanishing fog did not reveal a human being He was breathing his hanks and hoping he had found a covert for the day when a childish voice called You are oao of the bad men from the prison but you needn't be of me I won't hurt you A girl of 7 or S years was seated on the doorstep not ten feet away He had overlooked her She sat up like an old woman ant there was an old look to her face

many ears regarded as childish sport but those toys as men were wont to re- gard them have become in tho present ay most aids to science But the strangest of all kites yet in- Is one constructed by the Swedish engineer This kite is not to be flown in the air It Is to fly beneath the waters of he sea Thls novel kite is -t canvas adjusted to but strong metal frame and in shape is not dis- similar to the kite except that t is made In two sections the lower nd smaller one depending from the upper with which it is connected by a of coupling The object sought by Mr Sjostrand was to provide ships with an ever ready automatical guard or watch that would give Instant alarm If the essel enters shoal waters and is approaching spot where the depth is not sufficient or safety The under water Kite is to i thin wire cable attached to a winch on deck When the kite Is thrown overboard it sinks in consequence of the oblique pressure brought to bear upon It by tho water as the land kite is raised and maintained aloft by the pressure of the air With the winch the kite is lowered or raised at will and before a portion of this winch Is a scale and register that tells the depth In fathoms or meters al which It Is floating Tho curve of the cable to which kite Is attached never varies whatever California WHERE THE AUTOS the speed of the vessel or tho tion of the so that the kite always at tho exact depth y winch The purpose of the water kite Is to float beneath or beside the ship at depth that is sufficient to Insure safety If at any time day or night the ower section of the kite strikes om the signal pencil as it Is called releases the coupling with which it Is secured to the upper Ion and an alarm bell is sounded on he deck of the endangered vessel Precautions can at once be taken to ecure Its safety The kite meanwhile Is drawn up readjusted and thrown overheat d to maintain Its faithful watch During recent experiments with this submarine kite it was noticed that vessel was followed by whole schools of fish that fascinated by the queer new Inhabitant of the ocean The flsh disappeared when the sel came to anchor and the submerged kite lost Its motion WHY do we Mind your p's and

States a quarter of a century aso Whether or not they originally anonymously have been able to learn for In no instance do we find the name of the author the poem The lines are fully written and the dignity of toll is pictured with a vigor and fidelity to truth which make the poem especially appropriate for readers of the Scrap Book at a time nearly all the states in the union are preparing for the celebration of Labor Day Anonymous Toll swings the axe and forests bow The seeds break out In radiant bloom Rich harvests smile behind the plow And cities cluster round the loom Where towering domes and tapering spires Adorn the vale and crown the hill Stout labor lights its beacon fires And plumes with smoke the forge and mill The monarch oak the pride Whose trunk is seamed with ning scars Toll launches on the restless tide And there unrolls the flag of stars The engine with its lungs of flame And ribs of brass and joints of steel From Labor's plastic fingers came With sobbing valve and whirling wheel Tls Labor works the magic press And turns the crank In hives of toll And beckons angels down to bless Industrious hands on sea and soil Here sun-browned Toll with shining spade Links

and on to the automobile procession almost continuous Long Island road sif not always onus and the country east and north of- for along Its few direct lines of turnpike but norther New Jeisey is certainly the motor car's paradise for the reason tahat few of Its cross railroad lines it grade that eiun for short distances or moie roads are available and for the further reason that by sub- scription the main turnpikes from Trenton through all the country and east are kept oiled in order to keep down tho dust So frequent are the motor cars along the highways that horses no longer pay any attention to them and a source of danger and alarm is thus being eliminated and will probably pass altogether before long The only obstacle at present Is the severe tor law of the state but the residents of this neighborhood have conformed In advance to Its provisions with to licenses and the mounted who patrol the roads in sex and Morris counties seem to re- gard it as their duty to protect
