Mrs Martin and Son Also Trust ed Themselves to the Inven tion and Made Successful Flights Over the Home Farm Near the County Seat Canton Feb H Martin aerial navigator in prospective farm er ropemaker and civil engineer in the practical breadwinning pursuits of life will not retire to affluence and idleness supported by the bo mis which W R Timkeft the autorao bile axlemaker offered for a flying machine that would carry an able bodied man to miles back in one day The sfetus of limitation intervenes to pre vent such a result unless Mr Timken should renew his offer and grant an extension of time The same is true of Mr Timkens other offer of for an airgig that would carry a pas senger to miles west back in two hours These of fers were made almost a year be exact on February 4 1908 but they were not givenpublicity until last week when at a banquet of the Aero Club of Ohio he gave them out in fcpn inection with some other overtures that had been made to him Nor is Mr Martin making any ef fort either to have the time extend ed or to meet the conditions should such an extension be granted He said to a newspaper representative yesterday that he had no intention of attaching an engine or other motive power to his flying machine this ter The fat and lazy old family horse is all the motive power he desires for the present while he is seeking per fect control and a thorough under standing of his machine and testing it out in winds of varied velocity The old horse at the end of seventy feet of rope furnishes all the power he needs for this work and according to Mr Martin has elevated the machine and a husky boy to a height of forty feet He has however decided upon what he will use for motive power and during the summer expects to add two gas engines of a particular type on each side to insure the pres ervation of the selfbalancing quality for which he claims superiority for his own machine over that of the Wright brothers or any other experi menters It was the jibes and twitting of fel fow countrymen and boys that prod ded Mr Martin to aerial experiments At a country literary society over 20 than twenty feet when it left the ground He set the when about fifteen feet from the ground and with a sixmile wind flew 250 feet at a 10milesanhour clip Martin is 53 years of age and weighs 190 pounds Mrs Martin followed and except that she reached a height of forty feet duplicated his performance Three other flights were made by their 11 year old son and three by their 16 year old lad in a dead calm when the machine would not lift the heavier persons The machine includes aeroplanes and is controlled by rudders A per fect selfbalancing quality the inven tor considers its most valuable at tribute and he seems to have full con fidence that as soon as he learns to work the Jevers he can attach the en gines and sail away at will TO GET RELIGION IS NOTJALVATION Unless Works Accompany Faith Says Bishop Leonard THE BERTH OF MARY FOX Widow of Joseph Fox

aerial navigation was the subject of the evening I took the said Mr Martin that fly ing by man was practical and argued that side of the question and I may add won the judges decision I was joked and tormented unmercifully but I finally said you who are living twentyfive years from now will see men and women using flying ma chines with the greatest ease and My machine has reached that degree of perfection that I am confi dent now that that prediction will be fully Since that time Mr Martin has done much work as a civil engineer has served Stark county as surveyor has experimented along electrical lines and has always owned a prolific farm During all the time he has had the airship in mind and he said to the reporter yesterday he has made more than a hundred flying machines Only one is of mancarrying capacity but it embodies some of the principles ot his first little machine He has what he considers a perfect toy flying ma chine practically ready to market and the big machine is

Progress Toward Christ Depends on It The Rt Rev William A Leonard of Cleveland bishop of the northern diocese of Ohio of the Episcopal church told the large congregation Sunday evening at St Timothys church upon the occasion of hia an nual visitation that the idea that peo ple are saved simply by getting re ligion by being converted and by joining the church was old fashioned He said people were sent into the world to save their souls by working Many people accept religion sim ply to get out of the worid as easily as said Bishop Leonard The religion ot Christ sends us into the world pot out of it If people were to save none but their own souls they would have a lonely time in Bishop Leonards sermon was on the subject of Christs injunction the He said in be ginning that the tendency of the peo ple was to idealize religion We hear sermons and moralize for others but not for said he We fail to localize to concentrate Christs injunction Every man and woman who is baptized should be a preacher and an evangelist according to Christs blessed mandate How many Christians felt this this morning when they arose fromtheir prayers Bishop that thedan ger of the present feeling of religions unrest was that in the effort of the people to liberalize they are losing their responsibility as individual Christians to do their duty If the world is not drawing toward Christ and I believe it is as fast as we would like to have it the fault is our said the bishop When we review the days work we find we havent done much to bring others to Christ We find we have pushed re sponsibilities aside for other Eleven people were confirmed here went on Bishop Leonard Why were there not one hundred It is not the fault of the minister It is your fault You were sent here to bring someone else to confirmation After you have made peace with God you should go forth to bring others into the kingdom Dfe you ask any one to come here tonight In the work of overcoming sin by personal effort we have con tinued the bishop If disease crime immorality debauchery and ignorance are stalking through the streets of our cities if heathen exits in this or in other lands the blame lies at the door of the individual Christian God did not send us here to supply our own wants We are fellow laborers with God in the vineyard We bemoan the fact that the poison pauper in sane and drunkard classes exist Who could have checked it None but you and I and the other Christians of the land who are sitting by and letting the church do the work We should do personal church The musical program of the service included a solo by Miss Clara Wheel er of Cleveland and anthems by the choir ality and others a desire to do good to All members of tne Independent Branch of the Newsboys Association will meet In
