The weary wayfarer leaned over
the fence and watched the housewife
doing her chorea.
"Ah, lady," he said, tipping his hat,
"I used to be a professional humorist.
If 1 tell you a funny story will you
give me an old pair of shoes?"
"Well, that depends," responded the
busy housewife; "you must remember
that brevity Is the soul of wit."
"Yes, mum, I remember that, and
brevity is the sole on each of me

PLANS FORTARGER BATTLESHIPS
Naval Experts Believe the Next Built
Should Be of at Least 29,000
Washington, IV C —Plan for big-
ger battle ships with heavier armor
will be presented to congress at the
lorthcotning session by Secretary
Meyer when the question of the naval
building program is taken up for con-
Naval experts have practically
agreed that the new type of ship—ol
which congress will be asked to au-
thorize the building of two—will be
larger and heavier than the L'7,000-ton
ships now under construction. The
tonnage limit will be increased to at
least 28,000 and probably 29,000 when

Chi-f Signal Officer Says We Need at
Least 20 Aeroplanes for
Washington. D. C—Twenty aero-
planes at least are needed for the
I nited States government service,
fays Gen. .James Allen, chief signal
officer of the army, in his annual re-
'These aeroplanes should be on
regular practice at different points in
the country throughout the year,'' he
says. " They should be present on
camps of instruction for regular
troops and organized militia. Twenty
aeroplanes would provide but two for
each camp of instruction To operate
this number would require at least 20
specially trained officers as pilots In
addition to this each machine mugt
carry at least one observer, which, ex-
perience lias shown will require much
training and actual practice before the
usefulness of the heavier-than-air ma-
chine is attained."
General Allen deprecates the fact
that although the United States was
the first nation officially to recognize
the aeroplane for military purposes, it
has not kept pace with the world in
the development of military aero-
^ The aero equipment of the United
States army consists of one small
practice dirigible balloon, one Wright
aeroplane and throe small captive bal-
loons, says the general. The signal
corps has only one lieutenant and nine
enlisted men on duty in connection
With aeronautics and the chief signal
officer says, until the corps is in-
creased by congressional legislation
it will be impossible to furnish more
officers and men for the absolutely
necessary training demanded in air-
The National Government Spent $5,-
000,000 More Than it Received
\\ ashington, D. C.—The govern-
tnent's finances took a downward twist
during the last three days of October
and tricked the experts who had been
predicting a surplus for the month and
hoping for an even break at the worst.
Exclusive of the Panama canal
charges, the receipts for the month
were $'.5,266,441 and the expenditures
$58,560,323, which left a deficit in or-
dinary operations of $3,393,882. Add
to that sum the month's cost of the
work on the canal and $5,295,083
stands on the wrong side of the ledger.
The close of September had shown a
total surplus of more than $1,400,000
and It was the first time inthe present
fiscal year that the government took
in more than it paid out.
Kansas City, Missouri.—Because of
the nation-wide war which has been
started against independent oil com-
panies and small dealers by the

ing sold cheaper for tank wagon de-
livery than ever before in the history
of the country. This is the claim of
W ithin the past two weeks prices
on Illuminating oils have been forced
down by the Standard from 7 to 5V&
cents a gallon. This is the cheapest
that oil has ever sold for in Kansas
City. In Milwaukee and Chicago the
price is the same as here and in
Minneapolis and St Paul consumers
are paying 6 cents a gallon At this
time of jjear the price has never been
below 7',£ cents.

Operate Between That City
Cleveland, Ohio.—The first air-

to be organized between this city and
Hetroit by the Detroit & Cleveland
Aero company, composed of the offi-
cials of the Detroit & Cleveland
Steamship company. This fact be-
came known through the formation of
, the aero company. The new airship
j line, will be put in operation as -soon
I as possible. The distance from De-
troit to Cleveland is between 120 and
125 miles as the crow flies, although
the steamer route is much longer ow-
ing to the roundabout course which
has to be taken.

my two hands and I felt as if I could
