This is    a true statement,  without  law,  of how .the chairs we>'f .purchased on or about the sixth of January,  About    six o'clock    the  boy,   Stove,  came    into my     store,    washed and  neatly    dressed,     and   asked mo if  I  wanted to buy some chairs.     I asked  who had them.       "My mother has  a  lot    in   the    wash  house,  left by xny  aunt.     She has gone up-country. She  gave them to     my mother.

After that he was joined by  another     fcpy.        I a&kcd him .what  his    aunt    did   with  so   any chairs.  "She   kept     a bi'-arding house."     I  did  not in the least sus'pect the boy  To me he     had anything but the appearance     of     a       thief.       I   was  thrown     off     my        guard.     I   did  not know     the boy or ask his name.  A few days    after a policeman came  i nto    my     store and asked  me if I  had  bought any    chairs lately.     Yes,  I bought    .quite a few. ���������   "Can I see  l/hem," be    said.   I don't think they  ire    here,     what    is    the     matter?  "There have    been some stolen from  ihe    Opera    House."     The next day  the man     that had lost chairs came  n company    with the policeman. His  ^reccptab'ility    with a keener eye for  ^h:iirs,   claimed "all   in s ght.      The  jhairs claimed    were some from Victoria,    Nanaimo,    and     others there  were    none'    of his, but some of,the  Checker     Club chairs I found out afterwards.     Thc next come a limb of  thc Law.      "I-Iofw    about the chairs,  you 1-jiow they are ours and  we  will  have thenu."

"Aerial navigation,"  he says,  "is  perfectly feasible.    But that airships  will ever  be made in  which passengers or freight can he transported is  not probable, in my opinion, and     I  make this statement only after years  of experience  with the  best   known  methods of' traveling through      the  air     and after the most exhaustive  study of the science of aerial navigation. /'  /���������One o* the chief obstacles to the  furl her development. of the science is  lifting any,given  weight  into       thc  air.-   Another serious difficulty is ,the  inefficient motive power thus  far de-  covered  for  use  in  propelling      airships.   A third element which will deter people from entering the field   of  aerial navigation in large,, numbers is  the  extreme hazard  of  the business.  ; The weight of the air is  the    most  important     consideration in building  an airship.   Air weic'is 72 pounds' per  1,000 cubic feet,   approximately,      at  the sea level,  and exerts a pressure  on    all     objects   of   15  pounds   per  square   inch.     Now,     hydrogen gas  weighs seven pounds per 1,000 cubic  feet, so we have 65 pounds per 1,000  cubic feet as our buoyant-or sustaining1 power.  ''We must devise an envelope      of  very light fabric to contain the     hydrogen gas, arid  oi'cd silk has been  found  to he the best, material        for  this purpose, .as bping sufficiently- tl.in  and  yet     gas-proof. . Having figured  the   amount  of lifting   power   required, we estimate the qjuantity of Ifouy-  ant gas needed, and then compute the  size   of the gas  envelope  or  balloon.  Next .we must consider -,the resistance  ,of     the air caused by the br.l'oon of  the size contemplated, \and from this  we can readily figure out ;the    power  required to propel the airship at     a  given speed.

What I do say      is  t'....L   tons   can be elevated  it thc necessary     quantity  of gas is supplied;  but Lo confine such a great amount of  gas  necessitates a large envelope   or  ballcon,  and  hore are  we confronted  with   the original  problem  of  resistance of the air.  "To my mind,  the man who seeKs  to devise  a ship to carry passengers  or freight   through  the air will    find  himself confronted  with one complication after another.  "To  be perfectly frank,  my     ship  was  designed  merely  to give exhibitions, but I thought in my work,    I  might run across some new thought  or idea that would  point me to the  long-dreamed-of solution of the problem of free and unrestricted navigation of the aii".   Many people-cling .to  11.-  'ilea that .the aeroplane is the cor  r-i principal upon which to work toward a raalization  of  the dream     of  safely sailing the air.    Years  ago 1  experimented   thoroughly  with  what  what is known as the Liliienthal type  of     aeroplane, and later I tried the  type used by Octave Chanute of Chicago.   Those familiar with the history of the experiments in aerial navigation will know that these types of  aeroplanes      represent    thc   highest  stage     of development in that direction.   My work with the Liliienthal  and Chanute aeroplanes satisfied me  that such a means of rising into the  ai,r was entirely hazardous.  " Aerial/navigation has certain physical discomforts attached to it.  The  woist oi these is  the swelling of the  tongue     and    the parching of      the  throat caused by the rarity of     the  air at such lofty altitudes.   My hear'  ing also  becomes effected  because my  eardrums close up, but  I can secure  rehef from this to some extent     by  yawning.       Getting    away from the  pressure of air close to the earth, to  which our bodies and organs are accustomed, we     become distressed as  we ascend higher and higher.   I have  never noticed,     however, that      my  bivathing is seriously affected  white  1 am aloft.  '���������'On my second flight my suffering  was intense.   On that occasion I ascended   to   an altitude  of 5,000   feet,  and  would  have gone higher but for  the fact that the safety valve of the  airship permitted  some of the gas to  escape.    Speaking of valves,  I might,  say a word aibbut The device which I  have been using on my airship.   Thc  valve that has been in use for years  and J,hat has keen  adopted   by every  modern aeronaut' in the world weighs  M pounds.
