W. F. Wakefield, of Eddyville was in
town todav and gave a very interesting
description of the changed conditions of
the coast country during the past two
or three years. As a stock country it
is rapidly being settled with new people
who are turning their attention largely
to sheep1, goats and cattle, and as the
mist laden ocean breeze always keeps
the ground moist the grass is ever green
and fresh. Dairying is also very prof'
itable and to this industry Mr.. Wake
field has turned his attention.. A pretty
little story he tells of milking nineteen
cows and churning out $160 this month.
Two of the critters are heifers and five
strippers but the others hustle to make
up the deficiency. Many others are also
engaged in this industry'and the flies
buzz sweetly around the sour milk cans
atEddyvileas the' train pulls in. $3,000
was paid for one mohair pool there and
many new billys are coming every year.
When the Swift Packing Company at
Portland call for all kinds of stock just

Engineer and Farmer Build Self Ris
ing Airship Successful Test Flight.
Working in strictest secrecy in a
windowless cement shop located at a
lonely point in the woods eight miles
northwest of Medicine lake. Hennepin
county. Minn.. J. Stewart, a retired
railroad engineer, and Si BrownelJ. a
farmer with mechanical, genius, have
nvented an aeroplane which promises
to rival that of the Wright brothers.
says a Minneapolis dispatch"
Because of the peculiar arrangement
of the planes and of the means of ma
nipulation ihe Stewart-Brownell inven
tion is called a "butterfly" aeroplane.
At full moon the other night a suc
cessful flight was made with Fred
Parker, former operator and expert
for' Roy Knabenshue and Baldwin.
Parker reached an altitude between
250 and 300 feet and remained in the
air ten minutes.
The "butterfly" aeroplane claims sev
eral advantages over all others. It
rises without running wheels or any
assistance other than from its engine
and weighs complete only 200 pounds.
less than one-third the weight of the
Wright brothers' aeroplane.
The engine is the invention of Stew
art, who has been working on it for
twelve years. ,. The planes and their
arrangement are the joint conception
of Brownell and Stewart. Like the
Wrights,' the inventors of the. "butter
fly" airship are maintaining the great
est secrecy, but several persons have
seen it and witnessed its recent flight.
The engine is of the Gnome type.
and its five cylinders are connected
with the main shaft operating the pro-
neller. They are so arranged and
equipped as to work independent or
each other, and at the trial the other
night the engine made 1,800 revolu
tions. The horsepower developed is es
timated at between twelve and fifteen.
The weight is less than a hundred
pounds. The cylinders are one-eighth
of an inch thick. The stroke is three
and one-half inches.
Brownell and Stewart have arranged
to enter the trials for heavier than air
flying macWnes to be conducted under
the auspices of the United States gov
ernment at Fort Myer In October. By
that time they expect to perfect their
invention so 'as to reach any -desired
height and a speed of not less than
forty-five miles an hour.

DAYS OF CHEAP BREAD PAST.
So Says College Dean, Who Predicts a
Population of 1,400,000,000. v
"We, have seen the last of cheap
bread in this, country," said Eugene
Davenport, dean of the University of
Illinois, Urbana, 111., at the graduation
exercises of Rhode . Island State col
lege held the other day, at which Dean
Davenport and Governor Pothier of
Rhode Island were, .according to a
Kingston (R. I.) dispatgj the principal
Dean Davenport estimated that In
another hundred years the population
of the United States would be 1,400,
000,000, or more than 400 to the square
mile of territory, and said:
"Any way you can figure it we are
near the end of cheap food in this
country, which means that population
Is beginning to overtake the food sup
ply. We can increase production yet
many fold by means of better methods,"

sition of yet undeveloped acres, but'
the best land has been developed, its
.fertility has been more or less de
pleted, and some of it has already been
abandoned, and. while I have no de-H
sire to pose as a prophet and still less
to dogmatize. I am ready to venture
the opinion that we have seen the last
of cheap white bread in this "country."
