On the 14th Day of november a terrific storm wrecked Twenty one vessels in Balaclava Bay bearing for Britain s men ammunition and warm clothing and other necessaries for the Winter which settled in with unusual severity. Through unpardonable oversight the land transport broke Down altogether although it was but ten Miles from Balaclava to the front. Cholera the germs of which had been brought from Varna raged in the British lines and those who escaped it fell victim to scurvy dysentery or fever. With Only tents for shelter and rags for clothing with insufficient food and no medical comforts the poor Fellows starved and died and rotted. Between the beginning of november and the end of february 8,689 British troops perished in Hospital. On the last of these dates 13,608 men were still in Hospital. G Rix Vvhs Oak r Ai r. A swarm of bees held up the business Centre of Waterbury conn., the other Day. The bees swarmed a Day before the schedule Date and As they made for the business District there was. Great excitement store doors and windows were closed and women and children screamed and fled to the Sale streets. There was a general scampering Down South main Street As the swarm descended on this thoroughfare. And although the most travelled in the City. It was Bare of everything but bees in a few minutes. Electric cars and All other vehicles weat into retirement and the bees after stinging 50 persons circled about the saloons and the livery stables until they threatened to destroy All business. When the excitement was at its height the bees attracted by winners repairing a roof made a dead set for the noise and the Way the men slipped Down the ladders would do credit to sailors. The bees sought the seclusion of the housetops where of Cir owner with the usual Blan Lehmen s succeeded in coaxing the bees into a big Chimney. After a successful flirt slim with the Queen the Man loaded the swarm in big handfuls into the hive brought along in anticipation of Success. The problem of Aerial navigation has at last been solved. It is unquestionably epoch making news that has been cabled from parts France describing m. Santos Dumont s Aerial voyage around the Eiffel Tower and Over the suburbs of Paris. Man s Triumph Over the paths of the air has come with this accomplishment. The gifted brazilian s performances wore As much in Advance of count zeppelins and other previous accomplishments As the latter surpassed Ordinary ballooning. S till a a Ceil hit Wirf m. Santos Dumont left st. Cloud to his new Airship circulated around Che m. Santos Dumont s immediate object has been to win the prize of 100,000 francs offered a year ago by a Deutsch the Rouen Petroleum refiner. The conditions required that a Start to made in the neighbourhood of st. Cloud that the Eiffel Tower be circled three times and that the Airship then return to its starting place at an average bed of not less than thirteen Miles an hour. More than one inventor has been struggling under this incentive. Hence m. Santos Dumont has been working at the greatest Speed lest he be forestalled and he undertook the test at the earlist moment. He has already discovered several possible improvements which will increase the mobility and safety of the Airship. The Deutsch prize amounts to $20,000 in United states Money. Aron id the Tower. M. Santos Dumont reached the Eiffel Tower at 7 of clock in the morning. His balloon was being propelled through the atmosphere apparently a with ease and greater Grace than a parc was obstructed by two very High Sheds in which m. Deutsch donator of the prize is building a Large balloon for the purpose of winning it himself. M. Santos Dumont made repeated attempts against the wind to enter the parc Between the Sheds. The struggle lasted five minutes. The Supply of Petroleum then became exhausted and the machine was left to the mercy of the wind. Finding that the motor worked irregularly and then stopped suddenly m. Santos Dumont in order to prevent the Ballon from being carried away Tore the silk covering in order to allow the Gas to escape and make a Quick descent. The machine however was blown across the Seine and became entangled in a Chestnut tree in Edmund Rothschild a Garden. The aeronaut descended without injury. Almost his first word was that he would yet succeed in winning the $20,000 prize. Cost a Fortune. The ship is the outgrowth of several years of work and Experiment on the part of the inventor. This machine >in15h the great Sahara. Course taken by the Airship in its flight. Eiffel Tower and went Back nearly to the starting Point a distance of ten Tulles in forty minutes. But unfortunately when near Home his motor failed him and he was obliged to rip his Silken balloon to hasten descent and avoid injury. Notwithstanding this Accident m. Santos Dumont a Experiment was a Success in that the balloon navigated against the wind for the first time in the history of Airship construction. One or two minor defects which can be easily remedied in a few hours prevented the Complete carrying out of the tests but it is Safe to Prophesy that within a month m. Santos Dumont s invention will hold As Complete Dominion Over the air As a ship does Over the sea. Steam yacht plows the seas. M. Santos Dumont sat in the Forward part of the car hat idling the lines which controlled the engine and the rudder. The balloon glided along toward the Eiffel Tower its coat reflecting the beams of the Early Sun apparently obeying the will of the Steerer willingly. Nearing the Tower on the South Side the Baboon maintained its course until it was less than fifty Yards away when it gracefully turned northward m. Santos Dumont continued to turn his machine until it pointed directly Westward. It seemed to be absolutely unhampered by the wind. It passed the Eiffel Tower at an Altitude of about 10 meters Between the first and second stages. The Entrance to the textile Kriiger wife. To his wife who died in Pretoria a few Days ago. President Kruger of the Transvaal attributed much of his Success in the political life of the South african Republic. Mrs. Kruger was compared in this respect to the wife of the late Prince Bismarck. Like mrs. Bismarck she remained modestly in the background and comparatively Little is known about her. That the influence of Quot tante Santee Over the obstinate unyielding Oom Paul was great is however known and while mrs. Kruger seemed to take Little interest in politics it is said her Hus band often consulted her in matters of state. Mrs. Kruger was a daughter of the Duplessis family one of the Best known names in South Africa and was a Niece of president Kruger a first wife. She bore Oom Paul sixteen children seven of whom were living up to the outbreak of the War with great Britain in which two of the four sons have been killed leaving two sons and three daughters still alive. The Duplessis family comes from the blood that gave Cardinal Richelieu to the world and mrs Kruger therefore if a Load of Coal is let out of doors exposed to the weather say for a month it loses one third of its heating qualities. If a ton of coat is placed on the ground and left there and another ton is placed under a she the latter loses about 25 per cent of its heating Force the former about 47 per cent. Hence it is a great saving of Coal to have it in a dry place covered Over and on All sides. The softer the coat the More heating Power it loses because the volatile and valuable constituents undergo a slow combustion. Was not without distinguished ancestry. Little is known however about the family tree a when or. And mrs. Kruger in 1892, entered the two Story cottage i i Pretoria which was the executive mansion of the Transvaal they did not change their Mode of life and the simple unpretentious housekeeping which they had followed theretofore was continued. It was Only within the last few years and then Only because of her great age that mrs. Kruger took servants into the House up to four years ago she did All the housework Borsell although her Hus bands income of $36,500 from the government not to speak of his winnings from his private enterprises was sufficient to have Given her the service of a princely Castle. But mrs. Kruger preferred to do her own cooking and housecleaning and Seldom had any assistance save that of her daughters while they were still unmarried. Among picturesque arabs of desert.

The gearing apparatus is suspended from a huge Cigar shaped balloon. The motor is a gasoline engine which drives the Shaft of the screw. The aeronaut sits in the Saddle and starts the motor by Means of a pedal and Chain gear As in the Case of a motor Cycle. The gasoline is contained in the upper Cylinder and in the lower and larger Cylinder is a Reservoir of water which is used As a ballast. The machine Cost its inventor a Fortune. Lish ment of Liberty Equality fraternity As accepted principles of human society. Every american should feel not Only the greatest gratitude to France but the greatest admiration of the French people. It is indeed a great nation and a great race. It has educated the world in the principles of Liberty philosophy literature and individual Independence a Frenchman eat wisely lives tempera Tely he is sane patriotic energetic. Aud All frenchmen from the highest to the lowest actually think. Every Frenchman has an intelligent opinion on the questions of the Day. There is no country in the world where the absolute feeling of Equality is More firmly established than among the French. The French nation knows very few great fortunes and very few paupers. It is practically free from dyspepsia from gout from baldness from drunkenness and from special privilege. The French did us a great Deal of Good 125 years ago when Lafayette and Bis men and the Money and Power of France enabled us to beat the English. We derived much Benefit from France. We would derive even More today if our people would study and appreciate the great French nation free from class prejudice free from plutocracy free from superstition and forging always ahead. /tdjer1�sin� As Ducal or. Advertising is a Mode of education by which the knowledge of consumable goods is increased it bets Forth the Peculiar excellence of novelties keeps in mind the merits of Staple article and thus increases the general demand for commodities. This method of making the Public acquainted with goods Lias been resorted to because the modern system of distribution that goods be sold in Large quantities. Production increases com petition becomes More fierce and purchasers must he found. Business men recognize that advertising can increase salts by increasing the people s familiarity with goods. This better knowledge not Only helps to educate the individual but trains him in other ways. His Powers of discrimination Are exercised and developed by the necessity of making a Choice Between the articles. Even the abuses of advertising Aid him for he learns by his mistakes. Advertisement sometimes creates a demand sometimes directs it. What greater stimulus can there be for an inventor than the fact that a method is in Vogue by which a useful article can be immediately placed before the Public with the probability of Large and immediate returns advertising fixes new Staples. Tea was one of the Earl ifs articles advertised in England. Recently the Quot blending of teas has become customary and the value of the differ in blends made of political Economy tim Bucton letter there Are some 360 oases in the Sahara of various sizes. One of the chief is Bisk a which has not less than 160,000 Palms and from which come Large quantities of dates. The French Sahara covers 123,500 Square a Miles and 50,000 arabs live in it. In a the oases they build their houses beneath the Palms which afford much needed Shade from the hot Sun. Sun dried bricks Are the chief things used in making these houses. Palm Trees provide any Timber necessary. The houses Are two stories High. But for the Low doorways one would think they were High Walls Only. All the internal Light is obtained by openings on the court Yard round which the House is built. The Arab Home is somewhat of a prison for the women who Are rarely seen abroad. They take their walks upon the Flat roofs which Are common to All Eastern lands. But few arabs live in houses. They Are great wanderers. Wherever you travel in Algeria you Are always meeting Long caravans on the move. These bedouin live in tents which Are simply Camel cloths stretched Over boughs. For the most part they Are very poor Alf Cal live on the produce of a few sheep and goats. The chief item in the Arab costume is a White cloak called the burnout which covers the whole Figuro. It has a Hood which protects the head Horn the Sun. Beneath this there Are All sorts of gorgeous vests and jackets. The legs Are Bare but the feet Are covered with Rich red leather shoes dyed with the juice of the pomegranate. Arab women May or May not be Graceful. Seen on the streets they resemble animated clothes. Their faces Are covered to the eyes. Just before Sunset Arab Belles take a promenade and exhibit themselves and their jewels to their fair neighbors until the instant evening prayer at the mosque ceases. Then they hurry Down to Welcome Home their lords. A French writer who knows the people Well says that Quot the private life of the Arab is lost in impenetrable mystery. All is banded into colonies. A desert Oasis. Street scene shadowy in those singular dwellings where the master of the House plays the role of Jailer and behind those barred windows and closed doors lie the two Bee rets of this strange country a women and native the palanquin upon camels backs for women Are made of branches Bent by the heat of fire and covered with coloured cloths partly to protect from the heat of the Sun Aud partly to prevent the inmate from being seen. The Camel is a most stately creature and it is difficult to know what the Arab would do without this great Burden bearer. The Ordinary Camel costs from $30 to $60. It can carry 600 pounds. This is just the beast of Burden. But there is another kind of Camel called the Mehari. Which is very Swift of foot and can do from 125 to 190 Miles in a single stage. The value of these is about $200 apiece. The chief occupation of arabs to the casual visitor seems to be that of drinking Coffee. Cafes Are As numer us As barroom in Chicago and there for the fraction of a cent the Arab has All the benefits of a club. Each portion of Coffee is boiled in a Little tin Saucepan with a Long handle just Large enough to contain one portion. At night especially the cafes Are crowded to excess. Some of the poorer arabs sleep in the cafes All night just where they have been sitting All the evening. Such a Liberty is included in the Price of Coffee. Across the great Sahara vast and limitless As it seems there Are Well known tracts leading from Oasis to Oasis and though Sand storms obliterate them the Arab easily finds his Way it la a striking sight to meet a caravan on the move or a single Arab mounted on a Fine horse and his wife behind him hastening to his desert Home As the evening shadows fall. Another striking sight in the desert and by no Means uncommon is the Mirage that wonderful optical illusion which tells the Eye that it can so Trees and water where neither exist. The Arab use in the desert today is the same pastoral which has gone on unchanged for thousands of years everywhere one is reminded of the old patriarchs.

Many apartment houses Are now being erected in new York City for the special convenience of colonies of self supporting women and that they Are successful is attested by the fact that several capitalists Are contemplating making additions to the number already in existence. Those already occupied Are suited to every Grade of ambition and to every kind of income. Girl colonists Are Quick witted in adapting apartments to their use. If the group is too Large for one they take two three four or even half a dozen if necessary. The housekeeping is confined to one and the other apartments Are fitted up As sleeping rooms and sitting rooms in a Way that causes a conventional housekeeper to open her eyes. By the time such a one Bab made a tour of All the rooms belonging to a girl Colony and finds no bed Bereau or Chiff Onier in one of them she begins to wonder if these Young women have discovered a method of living without sleeping until someone explains to her that the Bagdad covered Couch piled High with cushions on which she is sitting is in reality a Woven wire cot with a comfortable hair mattress which serves As an excellent bed. Indeed to anyone unaccustomed to the ways of girl colonists it seems As if most of the inanimate objects in sight were engaged in a masquerade Ball. A curtain drawn aside from what seems Tobe a Bookcase discloses shelves filled with All the articles which furnish a Model dressing table. The dining room sideboard becomes a thing of Beauty with curtains casts and Bric a Brac in a charming room that Given no hint of its real purpose in the plan of the apartment. Where a Colony includes general apartments in its menage and puts Only one dining room and one Kitchen to its proper use two or three must be converted into living rooms. The dining room lends itself easily to the transformation but the Kitchen which seems quite hopeless at first glance often becomes the prize room of the House.
