Drives Machine Down Steps; Lands in Hospital
NSW YORK.—Peter Kelly, atten-
dant in St. Luke's hospital, In a
cot In the J. Hood Wright hospital
the other day, was bragging through
the mass of bandages that swathed
his features that he is a better man
than General Israel Putnam ever was.
Karly the day before Kelly, in the
eutoxnohlle of the superintendent of
fit Luke's, drove the machine down
several flights of stone steps in Cen-
Kelly will not speak of the Incident
that led to his ride. Dr. Clover, the
auperintendent, will not say whether
the attendant had his permission to
use the machine, but a shadow crosses
his face when he thinks of the occur-
Kelly first was noticed as he drove
the car rapidly around the Circle, a
circular road, about 200 feet in diam-
eter, apposite 106th street, near Cen-
tral Park West There Is only one
entrance to the Circlo. Patrolman
Smith, of the Arsenal police station
saw the machine.
"Heyf" shouted the patrolman, run-
ning up. "Quit that merry-go-round
stuff. This park Isn't Coney Island."
Suddenly the machine started along
a narrow footpath. Kelly thought
the path was the road leading out.
He had reached the top of the long,
winding stone stairway leading down
to Central Park WeBt before he re-
alized his plight. He started to turn
his machine aside, then decided he
would take the stairs.
"I should worry!" shouted Kelly as
the machine leaped out Into the air.
This will beat old Izzy Putnam to
a frazzle, and the papers will publish
Bang! Biff! Thud! The car took
the landings like a greyhound. Then
there came a turn in the stalrB and
the machine stopped with a disinte-
grating shiver. Kelly kept on.
Workers in the Aqueduct shaft at
the bottom of the stairs rushed to the
surface, thinking there was an under-
ground explosion. They found Kelly
lying doubled up several flights below
what formerly was the machine. All
he could mutter as they carted him to
tbe J. Hood Wright hospital was:

Cupid Is Routed; Quarrel Over Gifts in Court
CLEVELAND, O.—Cuplu ran to cov-
er the other day when the case of
Jacob Nemerov8ky, twenty-five years
old, against Pauline Williams of 2557
East Twenty-ninth street, was called
In Justice Chapman's court.
"Yon see. It was something like
this," said Constable Miller, who
served the papers, "Nemerovsky was
engaged to Miss Williams for more
than two years. During the courtship
he gave Miss Williams many pres-
ents. He wanted to get the presents
back- With two policemen he went
to ber home. The policemen were
unable to persuade the brlde-that-
might-have-been to deliver the iires-
ents, and Squire Chapman issued a
writ of replevin, with which 1

ents. They consisted of an umbrella
stand, foot stool, sewing tray, fold-
ing card table, collar box, Bmoklng
Jacket, and some other Btuff. There

body threw at me as I was leaving
the house, and they hit me on the
back of the neck."

Miss Williams says that she and
Nemerovsky were to have been mar-
ried December 7. The invitations had
been printed, but because they were
unable to get postage stamps out a
certain night, about two weeks pre-
vious, they waited till the next day
to mall them. However, the lnvlu-
tions were never sent.
"He made all kinds of excuses and
finally I forgave him." Miss Williams
said. "Everything was all right for
a while till he started to act up again.
Then I told him to leave. Monday
he came with a constable and took
away tho presents he had given me,
and some of my other things, ioo."

A TOY X-RAY MACHINE.
This little toy la greatly myatlfylng
to those who do not know lta interior
conatruction, and by making one and
keeping It In your room you will have
a puzzler for your friends when they
come to aee you. To outward ap-
pearances the little machine has the
power to tranamlt light through solid
objects, making them seem transpar-
ent; but, if the Interior of the box
were disclosed to view, it would at
once be apparent how the illusion is
obtained by means of a aeries of mlr-
rora placed at the proper angle* to
project the light which enters the hole
at one end of the box down under the
object through which the person is
supposedly looking, and up to hia eye
at the hole in the opposite end.
Though the construction of the top
la actually simple, It Is well to make
It appear complicated by adding tubea,
an electric battery, a switch and a
bell, as ahown In the llluatratlon.
None of these, however, are necessary
to operate the toy.

should be of equal diameter so It will

Fig. 5 shows how to faaten an elec-
tric bell or buzzer (J) to one side of
the machine, and how to mount a dry
battery (1) to the top of the machine.
Connect the bell and battery with
bell wire, and place a small switch in
the circuit, fastening it to the Bide of
the box as shown in Fig. 1.
Here is a good way to operate your
toy X-ray machine. Allow your friend
to look through the tuhes first, to see
that they are cliar, then place the ob-
ject to be looked through In the gap
between the tubes In holes, B and C,
and at the same instant clap one hand
over tube In hole D. This will shut
out all light and the friend will think
that bis view has been obstructed by
the object placed In front of hole B.
Now throw over the battery switch
and allow the bell or buzzer to
buzz, and after a few seconds, when
you have your friend guessing as to
what is going to happen, suddenly re-
move your hand from the end of the
tube In hole, D, and allow the light to
flood through the tubes. The marvel-
ous feat will then have been perform-
ed. Of course, you should allow a
longer period to elapse before remov-
ing your hand from the end of tube In
hole, D, when the object is thick, the
idea being that it requires a longer
time for the light to penetrate It.

As to Why the Chauffeur Did Not
Brlna the Car, Why That Waa
Mr. Mann, who Is an Inveterate
tease, was spending the week-end with
some friends. The ladles of the house
decided at the eleventh hour to take
him to an aviation meet, and he waa
requested to go out and tell Thomas
to bring the car at once,- the 'phone
to the garage being out of order.
"What ia it, exactly, that you want
me to do?" Mr. Mann asked, looking
up from his paper. His hostess had
ha<t experience with bis teasing, and
knew better than to remonstrate. She
thought full explanation the safest j
"Go to the garage," she explained i
with sarcastic care, 'right down the
cement walk, and when you are in .
front of the door, say: "Thomas, bring
the car at once.'"
Mr. Mann meekly disappeared, mur-
muring her directions over to him-
self. The ladies prepared for the spin,
and waited some 15 minutes, but no
machine arrived. At last the exasper-
ated hostess turned upon her guest.
"Did you do as I asked you?" she de-
"What did you do?" she persisted.
"Went to the garage, right down the
cement walk, and when I was In front
of the door I said: 'Thomas, bring
the car at once!'"
"Then why didn't he bring It?"
Mr. Mann looked surprised. "Oh,
Thomas couldn't hear me," he explain-
ed. "The garage door was shut and
you didn't say to open It or shout"
