TVie paths of two boys, each 16 years
of age, have led them to the Portland
police station within the last few days.

The delighted bluecoats thronged
about him. To their questioning, the
boy returned straightforward, manly
answers. He hailed from Baker City,
lie said, and was without kith or kin to
claim him. Four years ago his mother
was accidentally burned to death, and
a short time afterward his father
passed away. The eider Murphy was a
member of the Masonic order. , The
mother had Joined the Eastern Star

For two years, the boy related, he had

to service under the Flag. An attempt
to enlist in the Army had been met.

pocket, young Murphy responded to the
Celtic strain and set forth from Baker

He sent a suitcase, with his Sunday

charge from the second-night shift of
the police, and became young Murphy's
The suit case was taken from the
express office and the Sunday suit was
donned. A proper young American, a
distinct credit to the colors he seeks
to serve, stood forth. And they went,

The recruiting officer looked the ap
plicant over with pleased appraisal. He
punched the unflinching son of the
Murphys judicially and mused for a
moment. "He'll pass, alright." was the
The boy's story, which is not doubted,
will be investigated as a matter of

He has made three models, the

The principle on which he has de
veloped his aerial craft does away with
the propeller that is used In the aero
plane and on the Zeppelin, and, to use
his .own expression, employs suction
fans In the body of the machine to con
vert the resistance against which the
airship must go into driving power.
The centrifugal blower within the
machine,' which is shaped in general
like a Zeppelin, draws the air in at the
nose, creating a partial vacuum at the
forward end. Half of the air drawn
in is discharged through the box rudder
at the rear, filling the displacement and
cutting off suction that might retard
the speed, while the remainder Is dls
charged along the intake air column
and thrown back along the outside of
the dirigible by means of diversion
blades. This, according to Mr. Berry,
removes all resistance caused by coun
ter air currents and creates a pulling
power equal to the driving force of
the rear discnarge. tnus eliminating
all back pressure. In other words, the
dirigible simply sucks itself through
Weather Is Ko Bar.
The dirigible is fitted with planes so
that when the lift of the gas In its
body ceases to be operative, the planes
can be adjusted for either upward or
downward motion of the machine under

body of the car.
