WHIMS OF THE AIR
Curious and Rapid Changes In
the Velocity of the Wind.
HOLES IN THE ATMOSPHERE.
These Danger Spots, Krom the Avla
tors Viewpoint, Are Born of the Al
most Instantaneous Variations In thf
Force of the Aerial Currents.
Since man bu provided himself wltb
pings he has learned more astonishing
things about the air thnn were dream
ed of In his eld philosophy, lie has
bad to letirn them In order to malce
traveling safe on his new aerial high
way. The wind was almost a complete
mystery until aeronauts began to malto
closo acquaintance with Its strange
moods and vagaries. Tho startling ex
perleuces of aviators have stimulated
the nnemometrlsts 1. e.. the wind
measurers to fresli Investigations
wblcb have had surprising results.
Consider, for instance, those things
wblcb have been found out by tho
Aerotechnlc Institute of the University
If two anemometers (wind measiir
rrs) nre placed side by side about sev
enty-two feet above the ground when a
wind of from thirty three to forty
eight feet per second Is blowing the
most remarkable differences In the ve
locity of the wind nre observed. If tin;
anemometers are only ten Inches apart
both usually show nearly the huiim
wind velocity, but If the distance bo
twecn them Is Increased to about tliir
ty-two Inches one will sometimes sho
a wind velocity of ten feet per second
more rapid than that shown hy the
.other. Itut this difference lusts only
for an Instant. If tho distance be
twenn thejineiiioinotors Is Increased te
twenty-three or twenty-four feet, the
usual length of tin aeroplane, the dlf
ferenees in file velocity of the wind
shown by them are occasionally enor
mous, but of very brief duration This
must clearly produce a racUIng effect
upon an aeroplane, which may be dls
nstrous, for one end of It may for e
second or so experience a reslstanci
double that felt ut the other end.
But this Is by no means all. Not only
does the wind vary In this capricious
fashion at places a few feet or a few
yards apart, but It varies with equal
violence nnd suddenness at the same
point, as Is proved by fixing a slnglp
anemometer at a heluht of seventy
Ave or eighty feet above tho ground
nnd observing the successive changes
In Its Indications of velocity. Thus it
has been found that a wind whose, av
erage velocity was about thlrty-hl
feet per second maintained that ve
loclty for as much as ten successive
seconds nnd then In n second and a
half dropped to less than fourteen feet
perj,econd, which It maintained during!
two seconds, after which In the course
of half a second It sprang up to a" ve
loclty of fifty feet per second! It main
tallied the last mentioned velocity fr
only ii single second.
In another case the velocity of Un
wind rose In thr-e-itiiirters of a second
from twenty -six and one quarter feel
to fifty-seven nnd one-half feet per sec
Considering these facts. It Is no won
der that aviators meet with strnnse
accidents by running Into what the)
call "holes In the nlr," for the sustain
ing force of the air, on ne-oiiut of the
sudden variations of the wind, may
almost Instantly lose half Its value and
then with equal suddenness recover, or
moro thiiii recover, its former power
Such things enable any one to under
stand the peculiar perils that the ti via
tor has to face. Even ordinary mortals
know that tho wind Is capricious, but
to the navigator of the air It becomes
sometimes a very demon, or a leglou
of demons, whose eccentric gambnlliigis
are as uncontrollnble as they are uuei
It took thousands of years for sea
men to learn how to face with un
flinching henrts the vagaries of the
ocean waves and currents and for
shipbuilders to devise vessels that
could defy them, but It fcenis likely
that we In a few decades shall have
mastered tins -caprices of the n nuns
pbere and have produced airships that
will safely ride the wildest wind
It Is the advance of science Unit liar
giveu us the great advantage which we
possess over our predecessors In over
coming uature's obstacles, hut In
Increase of knowledge would not have
served us if there hud been decrease
of courage. That there has been no
auch decrease Is proved every day by
the daring 'feats of avlators.-Unrrett

Marconi Predicts Wireless Te
lephony in Six Months.
ON EVE OF BIG EXPERIMENTS
With Bigger Machines He Hopes Soon
to Bb Able to Make It Possible to
Carry on a Conversation Between
London and Ireland Working oh
Wonderful New Instrument.
William Marconi expects to telephone
across the Atlantic In the nenr future,
possibly within six months. This state
ment ho mado to the New York Times'
London correspondent, nt the saiuo
time denying the report which bus fre
quently cropped up in the last few
months that be bad succeeded lu talk
ing across the Atlantic.
"Somo newspaper accounts of my ro
cent experiments in Italy," he said,
"wero very funny. Here Is one that
says I succeeded in talking over n dls
tunce of moro tbnii -1,000 miles. As a
matter of ftict, we talked by wireless
over a distance of slightly more than
forty-flvo miles, wblcb was all we ex
pected and knew we could do wltb Uio
apparatus we wero using.
New Telephone Apparatus.
"We were experimenting with brnnd
now apparatus on wblcb I began work
only three mouths ago nnd which
seems very simple and very practical.
We did not intend It to work over big
dlstnnccs. It was not tried over long
distances; in fact, I know it would
not work much over forty-five miles.
The same type of apparatus would
have worked over longer distances, but
what wo were after was not long dls
tance records, but reliability rellabll
Ity first Wo were very much gratl
fled by the results.
"The first nnd severest test was
twelve hours' continuous tnlhtng not
U by one mini, of course. The twolvo
nours talk was provided by several
men and a phonograph working In re
lays. "The new apparatus is more practi
cal, simpler nnd less likely to get out
of order thnn anything we have had
"I think transatlantic telephony will
tie done soon. I think there Is no Im-
ousslblllty about it.
To Talk Across Irish Sea.
''We are building some larger nnd
more powerful machines, and now
expect soon to be able to carry on ex
periments In long distance wireless
telephony over 200 or 300 miles. The
station at Cllfden will, I hope, be do
ing It soon. We hope soon to talk be
tween Ireland and London If evenj
thing doesn't get smnshed up over Ul
ster and prevent the experiment. The
station at Carnarvon, Wnles. will also
soon be experimenting wltb long dls
tance -wireless telephony over n mini
mum of fiOO miles.
"1 am also working on a still bigger
machine, the object of which Is to send
transatlantic wireless telegraph and
telephone messages both on the snmc
"The commercial possibilities of
transatlantic telephony, 1 think, will
not bo nearly so great as those of
transatlantic wireless telegraphy at
least, not at present. You see. at most
we cannot fall; more than 100 words a
minute over the telephone, whereas we
can send UOO words a minute by wire
To Each Age Its Problems.
It Is not enough that wo leave our
Institutions as our fathers shaped them.
They knew little or nothing of the con.
dltlons which we face. Siilllclent unto
tho ago Is the work thereof. It is not
the right of any generation to project
Its will Into the future, but It Is the
duty of each generation to udjiwt Its
Institutions to meet Its own needs.
Men need not watt until denth to
reallzo runny of their Ideals. They can
hnvo things here on earth which their
fathers associated with the millennium.
They need no longer overwork nor go
cold nnd hiingVy nor sufTer from pesti
lence or even famine. Machinery has
provided the possibilities of u new life.
When all of these possibilities are real
izedwhen no one Is overworked, cold
or hungry, when all are leading Joyous,
purposeful Uvea adjustment will bo
complete wclfnro will bo universal.
From "Social Sanity," by Scott Near-
The greatest moment In our career Is
when wo nwaken to tho shining truth
that our life, to inako or mar, Is wholly
In our hands; that neither dark destiny
nor grim fato nor tho stars nor the de

of men or devils can cheat us of that
greatness of soul and M-renlty of mind
which are tho crown or real success.
