“Chickens is Chickens" these days, and the scrubbiest oki hen Is worth safeguarding.
While It is not our disposition to be overly suspicious of folks, we are inclined to believe
that a small outlay of a few cunts for a padlock or two is money pretty well spent.
Of course, all first class stores, such as we claim ours to be, liandles a complete line of
such necessary things as padlock*, and we would advise every chicken owner In this vlcin-
ity.to lose no time in procuring a few ’Midlock* from our big and varlod assortment.

An interesting recount is giv-
en us by Captain Bernard Smith
of Camp Travis of the record-
breaking altitude flight of Major
Rudolph Schroeder. The major,
after flying higher than any other
aviator has yet gone, became un-
conscious as the result of the ex
haustion of his oxygen tanks,
and his plane fell 88,000 feet.
At this moment Schroeder re-
gained his senses and succeeded
in righting his machine. Follow-
ing is a report of the major’s
On Friday, February 20, M. j
Schroeder, U. 8. A , made an al
titude flight with the La Pore bi
plane, equipped with Moss su-
In order to prevent a recur
i rence of his experience of ten
days previous, when his oxygen
apparatus failed to function, and
he fell in a spin, he carried two
separate oxygen supplies, oue
being conceded to an automatic
regulator, and tfle other, the
emergency supply, consisting of
a small bottle with a rubber
tube to the pilot's mouth. How-
ever, the automatic regulator
failed to function, and it was
necessary to rely solely on this
At an indicated altitude of
80,000 feet the supply of oxygen
became exhausted, and the pilot
became unconscious almost im-
mediately. When he regained
consciousness the airplane was

McCook Field almost without the
use of his eyes. He accom-
plished almost a perfect landing.
He believes that he would have
been totally blind had he re-
mained in the air five minutes
Upon landing, he was taken to
the hospital at the field, where
his eyes were treated, *nd there
is no fear of losing the sight.
The preliminary calibration of
the barograph indicates that tho
airplane reached a pressure of
eight inches of mercury, which
corresponds to approximately 3ft
thousand feet on the Bureau of
Standards altitude charts.
The sudden change of pres-
'sure during the prolonged divw
'crushed three of the four gaso-
line tanks carried on the air-
plane. That the plaue was up-
side down during a part of the
drop, is shown by the fact that
some mercury which had been
lying on the floor was found
splattered against the under side
of the instrument board. The
rapid change in temperature and
the terrific rush of air took the
varnish and dope off the wings
in streaks. It is believed that
this was due to the cracking of
the varnish by the rapid temper-

General March, in speaking of
the different impressions soldiers
received during the war when
under fire, said: “One, when I
asked him how he felt, said he
was too buoy to feel, and when I
asked what appealed to him as
the most remarkable thing about
the war, answered; ‘Where in
h—1 all the cooties come from,’ "
