 - MANSFIELD BEFORE WEDNESDAY NIGHT r Machine Was...
MANSFIELD BEFORE WEDNESDAY NIGHT r Machine Was Badly Damaged When He Made De scent Near Salamanca, noon So That He Will Be Delayed For Several Days-Will Alight In Mansfield On the Ohio y State Reformatory Farm. ! It will be several days, probably Thursday, before Mansfield people will be able to catch a glimpse of Aviator jCal P. Rodgers, who Is one of the contestants for the $50,000 prize In the coast-to-coast flight and who is following the line of the Erie railroad in the Cigbt between New York City and Chicago. It had been expected that Rodgera would be able to reach Mansfield by Monday night, but an accident to his machine while be was alighting at a small place west of Salamanca, N. X., Sunday afternoon will prevent it. It is really impossible to state Just when he will be here as it will require some time to make the necessary repairs to the flying machine, and thn If he has no further accidents he may make the flight from Saiamaca to Mansfield in a day. Rodgers will positively stop at Mansfield, no matter .when he arrives. According to the reports received at the local office of the Erie railroad, Rodgers left Hornell, N. Y., Sunday morning, and expected to reach Jamestown, N. Y., at noon and then on to Meadvile. Pa., for the night stop. So confident was he of reaching James-1 town that he had ordered a luncheon for himself and several in his party. The aviator did not have the best of success from Hornell westward, as he had trouble with his engine. Ho made sixty-seven miles west as far as Salamanca and was proceeding on in his flight. At Red House, a small 6tation eight miles west of Salamanca, it was found necessary to make a landing. In making the landing, one of the planes of the air craft struck a wire fence and it was so badly damaged that the machine was taken back to Salamanca, N. Y., for repairs. It is Impossible to ascertain the exact extent of the damage, but it was announced by tho Erie railroad that it would probably be a few days before he would be able to start again. If he is able to make . a successful flight when he is started again, Rodgers will attempt to make the trip west as fust as possible. Salamanca is 270 miles from Mansfield, and it would be almost impossible for hira to make the flight in a day unless he has had unusual success. Most of the aviators who have made long flights have never been able to make more than a hundred miles in a day. Again, there is a possibility that he may be very closo to Mansfield, within twenty miles or bo, and then be compelled to descend on account of engine troubles or for other reasons. It may, therefore, be as late as Friday, Saturday or Sunday before he is able to get to Mansfield, if he ever gets here at all. Rodgers will positively descend in MaiiHfield, and his advance repre-eeutatives arrived in Mansfield Sunday afternoon to make the necessary arrangements. In the personnel of the party is A. Roosevelt, of Dayton; Lawrence Peters, of Philadelphia, and R. Butler, of New York City. Mr. Roosevelt is the advance representative of the aviator and seeks the necessary places where a landing may be made, and is incidentally a second cousin of former President Theodore Roosevelt. Mr. Peters is connected with the Vin-Fiz company, which is backing Rodgers in his flight across the continent as an advertising novelty. Mr. Butler Is advertising manager for Armour & Company in New York City and is a lightning scenic artist who is assisting in the campaign. Mr. Butler is a wizard with the brush Slid his ability is shown in the clever work that is on exhibition in local stores. Some trouble was experienced In securing a favorable landing place for Rodgers when he does come to Mansfield. E. G. Slough, secretary of the Chamber of Commerce, and Mr. Roosevelt made a trip about the city in the former's automobile. It was suggested that Wiler field might be a good place, but this was not wide enough, while the numerous trees and wires at other large fields about the city made them impracticable. The course of the Westbrook Country club was alao suggested, but it was found that there , are too many trees in tne immediate vicinity for him to attempt the descent and ascent at that place. A visit to the Ohio State reformatory was made this morning, and after a conference with Superintendent Leonard permission was given to make the landing on the reformatory farm. The exact part of the farm where he will alight is the field of about twenty-five acres located on the North Main Sagging or Hanging Cheeks and Chin (From Woman's Magazine) Flabbiness of checks, chin or neck has been considered very difficult to correct, until the recent discovery of a veritable wonder-worker for such conditions. The preparation is so eimple and harmless any woman can easily make and apply it. It is all the more remarkable in that its beneficial effects are apparent even after the first application, both aa to appearances and the feeling of comfort pro-dueed. The formula is: Powdered saxolite, 1 oz., dissolved in 1 pt witch hazel. ITk daily as a wash lotion. The solu tion tends to contract and solidify the loosened, baggy tissue, smoothing out the folds, creases and wrinkles, be-Bidet having a refining influence on ekin of coarse texture and large pores. As witch hazel and saxolite can be had at any drug store at little cost, many will doubtless be glad to have tfci successful recipe. , I N. Y., On Sunday After street road Just north of the large red barn which is on the farm. It will be a fine place and will give every one who desires to see it an opportunity to view the descent and ascent of tho airship without in any way hindering the aviator. Police protection will be furnished so that the aviator will not be hindered by tie crowds, which will probably come from the suroundlng towns, as well as Mansfield. The machine which Rodgers is using In making his flight is an B X Baby Wright biplane, one of the new models turned out by the Wrights that is capable of high speed. All necessary repairs are carried in the special train which is accompanying Rodgers so that he will not be hindered by lack of parts for his machine. That the biplane is capable of great speed is shown by the distance be has traveled when he has been in the air. His advance representatives state his greatest difficulty has been in the hilly country through tho east, and that when he gets farther west he will be able to make twice as great speed as at present. The speclnl train, which is following Rodgers is known as the VIn-Flz special. It Is painted white so that the aviator will have no trouble in distin- K",lb;h,i"5 t tm other trains on par- allel lines, It carries all the necessary repairs for Rodgers' machine and also an automobile which is used to convey him about after he leaves his biplane. In the special party on the train are Mrs. Rodgers, Lieut. Rodgers, the army aviator, who made such a sensational flight in the east and who will give exhibition flights at points west of Chicago where stops are made, and C. H. Davidson, president of the Vin-Fiz company, which is backing the flight. A large number of newspaper correspondents and photographers are also on the train. After leaving Mansfield stops are to be made at Lima, Rochester, Ind., Crown Point and Chicago. It is not known just what railroad will be fallowed west of Chicago, but Rodgers will probably take the southern route through Missouri, Kansas and Texas on to California. Before leaving for Lima today, Mr. Rosevelt stated that under good conditions Rodgers should now reach Mansfield Thursday afternoon and that he will remain here for the night. He also stated that -the site selected for the landing was the best that had been secured of any the cities at which Rodgers has been scheduled to make a stop. He asked that the officials warn thep ublic in regard to giving the aviator plenty of room In making his descent and that no one be permitted to get on the field until his machine had touched the ground. He stated that possibility of an accident was very great and that extreme caution should be used. Great interest has been taken in the coming of the aviator, and it was btat-ed at the local Erie office that over 500 telephone calls were answered Sunday relative to the coming of Rodgera The Chamber of Commerce will pro vide the white cloth which will be used to mark the place where Rodgers will descend. EIGHTEEN TYPHOID GASES IN MANSFIELD While There Is No Cause for Alarm nccaiiMe of Cases of Fever, Neces sary Precautions Should lie Taken to Prevent Epidemic. Eighteen cases of typhoid fever have been reported to the health authorities of the city during the present month and while this is not an unusual number at this season of the year, extra precautions should be taken by all to ward off' the disease. Dr, Davis states that It would be better to boil all drinking water and take such other precautions as might tend to prevent an epidemic of the fever sweeping over the city. Thus far, only one of the eighteen cases that has been reported, has been fatal. The afflicted persons are not in any. particular portion of the city or along any milk route. None of the cases are attributed to the milk supply as this has been watched very closely, while the water supply Is being guarded as closely as pos sible. Four cases were attributed to the water supply from a well in the northern part of the city, but this well has been condemned and the possibility of more cases resulting therefrom shut off. It appears that most of the cases have resulted from persons returning from their vacations and the germs of the fever were secured by drinking the strange water while they were away from home. There Is no cause for alarm because of the number of cases that have been reported during the present month, but the health officials state that it would be better to take all necessary precautions. It was reported that the death of Miss Norrick wag due to a relrjse following an attack of typhoid ferer. The health officials state thai no case of typhoid fever was reported to them in this case and that an Investigation will be made. ,
