DEMOCRAT TALKED OF FOR GOV-
ERNOR OF NEW VORK.
Faithful Service Won Illm Promo-
tion From Snbordlnnte 1'onltlonM to
Poita of II lull IteMpouHlblllty — A
The talk of Dnulel S. Lamont as the
Democratic candidate for governor of
the state of New York brings into the
public eye again a man who was a con-
eplcuous figure ten years ago. At that
time his chances of reaching even the
highest office In the land seemed good,
but Mr. Lamont suddenly began to de-
vote himself entirely to his business In-
terests and took no active part in poli-
tics. Should he be nominated for gov-
ernor of the Empire State and elected
to that office his figure might again
loom large among those mentioned for
the presidency In tho campaigns of the
Daniel Scott Lamont was born at
McQrawville, Dear Cortlandville, N. Y.,
Feb. 9, 1S51. lie went to the village
school, attended the Central academy
and In due time entered tho class of
'72 at Union college, Schenectady, N.
Y. In the endeavor to support himself
while at college he wrote to the gov-
ernor of the state asking his aid in ob-
taining employment in the service of
the legislature. Something in the ap-
peal of the college lad enlisted tho in-
terest of the governor, with the result
that young Lamont was given a posi-
tion as an engrossing clerk. That was
tho beginning of' his political career.
Ills association with the legislature
eventually brought him into the serv-
ice of Samuel J. Tilden, of Daniel Man-
ning and of Grover Cleveland. For
several years he was clerk of the state
committee of his party, and as an edi-
torial writer on the Albany Argus he
showed that he could wield a trenchant
pen. These positions gave him a thor-
ough acquaintance with tha politics
and politicians of the state, an ac-
quaintance that made him of grefit
value to Governor Cleveland as pri-
vate secretary. When the voice of the
people called Mr. Cleveland to the na-
tional capital Dan Lamont was pro-
moted from private secretary to the
governor to private secretary to the
president. After Mr. Cleveland's do-
feat for re-election in 18S8 Lamont,
like the president, retired to private
life, aud In four years' time, through

The gummer girl is so much of an In-
stitution now that It will be of Interest
to know that the first verses that were
printed about her were written some
fifteen years ago by Tom Masson, who
has Included them in the characteristic
collection of verse, "In Merry Meas-
ure," just issued.
"I wrote the verses one February,"
said Mr. Masson, "during a blinding
snowstorm, and the only thing I could
think of was 'The Summer Girl.' " The
poem was widely copied, and the
phrase thereafter became a part of

I genius, and his poems cover such
I range of subjects, varying in form
from the quatrain to a comedietta sat

of variety in "In Merry Me ; sure." The

Gilbert and other well known artist
Mr. Masson is a resident of Glen

marked, "consists of three children,

Mrs. Masson was Miss Fannie Zu-
lette Goodrich, and her marriage to

Oct. 24, 18113.
Much of Mr. Masson's verse has a
ni'-st happy commingling of philoso-
phy, sentiment and humor. In illus-
tration two stanzas entitled "Why?"
may be quoted:
Unequal portions st-tn to be
Allotted unto man.
Kor some have ail. and others naught-
Anil tills by nature's plan.
Why are some portions cut so large

WINGS AT LOW PBICE
INVENTOR HOLLAND EXPECTS TO
PUT THEM ON MARKET.
They Will Fie <;tin runt to Sonr.
The Inventor of the Submarine
Hunt Think* He Hhh Solved Prob-
lem of Fly in Teat In rroicreso.
"Lend, lend your wings! I rnownt!
I fly!" wrote tbe poet Pope. In a few
years, if the Inventor, John P. Holland,
can bring it about, no one will have to
borrow wings, for they will cost only
$10 per pair, and at that rate almost
every one will have "the price." In-
ventor Holland prophesies that In a
few years' time the air will be full of
people tiying about on business or
pleasure. He thinks he has found the
secret of flying and will soon be able
to put a style of wing on the market
that will exactly meet the |>opuiar de-
There is a difference between In-
ventor Holland and Daedalus, Icarus
and their modern imitators who have
essayed to navigate the air, as Virgil
put it, "(Hi wings not given to men."
These men have as a rule been vision-
aries wIkj had no record of porform-
anoe behind them. Mr. Holland has
made startling promises before, but he
has kei* his word. He promised to
build Inxits that would navigate the
sea beneath the waves and did it. The
remarkable performances of the sub-
marine l>oats built on the Holland plan
are well known.
From navigation of the depths of the
sea to soaring on wings above the
clouds is a far cry, yet it may be that
the same mind which solved the one
problem can solve the other. Of course
Mr. Holland will not divulge the secret
of making wings which will fly. The
shop in New Jersey where the experi-
ments are being conducted is guarded
with care, but Mr. Holland allows it to
be known that the wings he expects to
put on the market will be from ten to
lifteen feet long and will be adjusted
to the shoulders and hips. Both feet
and hands will be used in working the
apparatus which is to operate the
wings. This apparatus, which is to be
of steel wire, leather and some hard
but light metal like aluminium, will
weigh less than twenty-two pounds. It
has not yet been decided of what mate-
rial the wings themselves shall be con-
structed. As they are to be built for
individuals, of course they will need to

The Korean landscape to a visitor

many strange features. The country
over which the Hussions and Japanese

has been a fighting ground for sur-

unique and scenes that are both pic-

be of different sizes and also of differ-
ent styles, for the woman of society,
when she tlies off on a shopping tour or
to make, a few afternoon calls, will
want wings to match Her costume,
while the workingtnan who sails back
and forth between home and shop will
care more about the durability than
the appearance of his wings. Doubt-
less only the more venturesome will
undertake to fly at first, but as the pub-
lic becomes accustomed to the idea ev-
ery one will learn until no more dan-
ger will be associated with flying than
is now associated with bicycle riding or
automobiling. Even young children
will have cute little pairs of wings and
will tly away from the paternal roof
like merry larks. It will be useless to
try to keep them penned up in the door-
yard then. This is all. of course, ac-
cording to the Holland idea.
For the start in one's aerial Journey,
the Inventor says, it will be necessary
to jump from some height, ^o as to
gain momentum. Nobody need fear a
fall, for even if the apparatus should
fail to work the person with the wings
would not drop suddenly to earth, but
would descend gradually and thus be
able to alight in safety. Tbe inventor
advises choosing a "skyscraper" or a
public park or a field In which to alight,
as tbe person soaring in the air must
come to earth at an angle rather than
straight downward. The objection to
alighting with a pair of fifteen foot
wings in a street crowded with trolley
cars and automobiles is obvious.
Mr. Holland once said that It took
him twenty-three years to educate the
United States government up to the
idea of using submarine boats, so he
will not be discouraged if bis new in-
vention Is received with Incredulity by
the general public. Mr. Holland's first
submarine boat was exhibited In New
York harbor in 1870. The company
which now makes the Holland type of
submarine boats is capitalized at $1,-
000,000. Mr. Holland is no longer con-
nected with the company, but Is ex-
perimenting with a new submarine
boat which he believes will be a great-
er wonder than that with which the
public has now become familiar.
As for Hying, he expects ere long to
pass some of the pleasantest days of
Ids life sailing through spice at tbe
rate of fiftj miles an hour.
