Pittsburg, Pa., will unfurl the lar

sample of Old Glory, which will likely
float between the courthouse and the
Friek building, will be 80 by 1G0 feet

six feet, and . each" star will be eight
feet high. The material in the emblem
alone will weigh 700 pounds, and the
flag with its hangings will weigh about
a half ton. ;
The , best standard United States
bunting will be used in the construe
tion of this whopper insignia of liberty
and independence, which will be eiirht

'PPIAL PGR "IDEAL WIVES."
- . . .
Hundred Would 3s Husbands 'Want
' "OiJ Fashioned Girts."
Hachelors and widowers to the num
ber of more than a hundred made ap
peals for wives the other night through
the- P.evr. Vaur lmn at the Halstead
Street Institutional church in Chicago.
The letters of many of the yearning
swains, all describing r in detail the
quallucations of the women whom
they desired, as helpmates, were read
to an appreciative conrre?tinn k,, th
pastor of the church.
Dr. Vaughan preached his regular
Sunday evening sermon on the subject
of "The Ideal Wife." His material he
obtained from the Tetters which he
While the qualifications mentioned
for wives were varied and amusing in
many cases, it was evident that most
of the men who wrote to the pastor
were serious in their requests. Every
man wrote that he did not wish his
wife to be a coriege graduate or a
clubwoman or a reformer. Neither
was it considered essential that she'
be pf etty or talented. What every
man wanted was an "old fashioned
girl." Also every aspirant for. matri
monial bliss wrote that he wanted his
wife to be a good cook.
FLAN FOR A CANADIAN NAVY.
British Rear Admiral Urges Airships
as a Prominent feature.
A nucleus of a Canadian navy, with
cruisers on both coasts and with tor
pedo boats and airship scouts, is what
Rear Admiral Ernest James Fleet of
London' suggests for Canada in a let
ter which .he has written to this eoun
try; says an Ottawa dispatch. He has
commanded two British warships on
the Pacific coast. .
He suggests for the Pacific coast two
tiew cruisers, six destroyers, six torpe
do boats and airships. Regarding the
latter he says: "One or more dirio-Hiio
airships fitted for observation and
scouting and dropping high explosive
bombs, to be worked bv the
navy and housed at Rodd hill, Esqui
mau, would be invaluable working in
conjunction with a naval force, both
m threatening raidins cruisers with
high explosive shells and in communi
cating to the garrisons the locality of
a raiding force at sea."
He suggests a similar navv for the
Atlantic coast. He shows how both
would be a valuable assistance to the
imperial navy and how the ships could
in times of peace patrol Bering sea
and the coasts.
