Above, the Wright Bros. suffer a setback due to pilot error.
Don’t despair, because in less than two years,  Aviation Week will
bring aeroplanes to Rancho Dominguez … Below, crime briefs from
"life’s seamy side": James Mulhall, partner in Venice’s Ship hotel, is
in custody on charges of mail fraud after his son contacts authorities
about his "commercial trickery" … A young girl is accused of stealing
an alligator purse from the dressing room of the Orpheum Theater … An
arsonist in Chicago tries to set fire to a school … And a robber holds up
Tong Yen’s jewelry store.
