WHO OWNS THE AIR?

Thu effect of lids rule Is (o glvu (hu
owner of laud thu exclusive right to

harmless, constitutes a trespass, for
which nn action mny bo brought.
Applications for Injunctions against
airship owners and actions for trespass
by aggrieved landowners are not un

girls whom our Emancipation society
tried to bcnellt, or, at least, you were
a year ago."
"That Is ho," snld tho stranger.
"Then our society bus evidently not

was ho happy lu my life."
