For Trip Toward Mars.

Journey to Signal the Planet Will
Use Water Ballast and Carry Ten
Milea of Wire.
Leo Stevens, the aeronaut, got back
to New York from Amherst college the
other day, having spent several days
with. Prof essor David P. Todd, the as
tronomer, planning the details of the
balloon trip that he and the professor
have promised themselves to take on
the inth of next September. Mars
will be nearest the earth then, and the
professor is going to try to intercept
some of the electric messages he be
lieves the wise old Martians have been
patiently firing at us for, decades.
"I don't know about getting in touch
with Mars that's the professor.'s busi
ness but I hare contracted to take
him up ten miles, and I'm going to do
it," said the aeronaut.
Stevens added that the professor was
engrossed by the prospect of the trip
and was ready to begin training right
Of course first of all the professor
will have to be sky broken. He is go
ing to begin on that in a few days,
when Stevens will take him and a few
of his 'Amherst boys on a little ascen
sion at Springfield, Mass. After that,
if the professor follows the aeronaut's
directions, he will go up every week
or so and learn to like it.
For the month of August the pro
fessor has laid out a course of train
ing for himself and Stevens. It will
consist of regular exercises at breath
ing tank oxygen -in an air tight com
partment. . Stevens will probably take
this course at Amherst. Its purpose
will be to acclimate them to life in the
air tight aluminium compartments in
which they will be penned for a great
er part of their flight.
"One of the things that we settled
at Amherst," said Stevens, "was the
question of bailast. That has been
troubling us. It will be impossible for
lis, penned up in our aluminium cases,
to handle sand or anything of that
sort. We have concluded, however, to
carry, water as ballast, which will be
released by stopcocks in the aluminium
The balloon which Stevens will use
has a lifting power of two and a half
tons, but the aeronaut says he will
make ample provisions for expansion
in the rarefied regions, starting out
probably with the balloon not more
than ohe-third inflated; also he is go
ing up a mighty sisht faster than he
would ordinarily, so as to keep from
freezing when the balloon touches the
high points. .
"The throwing over of a quarter of
a" pound of ballast will send my bal
loon up a thousand feet," said he, "but
when we start on the great ascension
we will drop probably fifty pounds of
water at a time."
Of course, being cooped up in the
aluminium pens and fed on oxygen,
speed won't interfere 'with their
Stevens declared that he and the
professor are dreadfully in earnest
with this project; that they, have al
ready placed orddra in France for a
special barograph and other instru
ments that will guide them fn their
flight; also they have begun to make
arrangements for the manufacture of
the aluminium cases and for about ten
miles of special wire that the pro
fessor wants to pay out so as to keep
in touch with the earth. Stevens esti
mates that the ten miles of special
wire. will weigh only about 200 pounds.
it seems to be indispensable." said
the aeronaut, "to the professor's
scheme for getting into wireless com
munication with Mars. He has eot to
be grounded or something."
The aluminium tanks will close air
tight like a refrigerator; but. according
to tne present day plans, they will be
furnished with a heavy glass floor and
windows. Mr. Stevens didn't expect,
however, that they would have to re
sort to their tanks until they attain a
neignt or live miles or .more. They
will have a little chair in each alu
minium box and a good supply of
"heat producing" food.
Stevens has never been higher than-
iour ana tnree-quarter miles. He said
recently: ' -
"Three Frenchmen went up eight
and. a quarter miles about a year ago,
but one of them was frozen to death
and another paralyzed. They weren't
prepared for such a height, however,
and we will be. We intend to go up at
least until it is impossible to draw
oxygen from our tanks, and then, of
course, we will take the warning and
drop, for a balloon, my boy, always
has the energy to drop." New York
Shoes of Bronze For Women. ;

feet, and the color shades tastefully

STORIES OF LORIMER.
ixperiwiee of the New Illinois Senator
, With a Farmer. .
Representative William Lorimer of
Chicago, Republican, who wag recently
elected United States senator from Illi
nois to succeed Albert J. Hopkins, is
a great walker. One day when he
was a congressman he was out for a
tramp along the conduit road leading
from Washington. He sat down to
rest after going a few miles.
"Want a lift, mister?" asked a good
natured Maryland farmer driving that
"Thank you." responded Mr. Lori
mer. "I will avail myself of your kind
offer." . .
The two rode in silence for awhile.
Presently the teamster asked, "Profes
"Yes," answered Lorimer, who was
thinking of a bill he had pending be
fore the house.
After another long pause the farmer
observed, "Say, you ain't a lawyer or
you'd be talking, you ain't a doctor
'cause you got no satchel, and you
shore ain't a preacher from the looks
of you. - What is your profession any
how?" . ; ......
"I am a politician," replied Lorimer.
The Mary lander gave a snort of dis
gust. "Politics ain't no profession;
politics is a disorder."
Years ago when Mr. Lorimer was
working in the glue department of the
Armour company, at Chicago, the elder
Armour came down to the packing
house one morning at half past 6
o'clock. He walked through the glue
department and found Lorimer the
only man there. -
"Do you get down at this time every
morning?" asked Mr. Armour.
"Yes. sir." Lorimer replied, "when
you are in the city, sir."
It wasn't long before Lorimer had a
raise in pay.

In the world, whose sobriquet of "Par

by the late William n. Vanderbilt, was
managing Dan O'Leary when O'Leary

by his appearance, turned to Ed Stokes
"Who is that clean cut, well dressed
"He," replied Stokes, "is a promi
nent Chicago sporting man."
"Why," said Vanderbilt. "he looks
more like a handsome parson."
A score of persons heard the remark,
and the name stuck to Davies.
In a recent speech Sir Robert Hart
called attention to a remark made to
him years ago by the Chinese prime
minister.. Wen Hsiang: "You had bet
