l call it Hit' romantic spirit
or the pioneer spirit and 1 say that a

he's living in Maine or California und
that whatever tlie conditions ure he
will overcome them. 1 know that we

So I repeat that to my mind the
hmise details don't count here for any
more than they did In the lives of the
original New England settlers, or the
forty-niners, or those on homesteads or
in Alaska today. However, I'll put
them in and I'll take the mouth of May
as un example—the Ilrst month after
1 was made foreman. It's fairer to
give the Items for a month. They ure

This makes an average of three dollars and nineteen cents a week. With
a fluctuation of perhaps twenty-five
cents either way Ruth maintained this
pretty much throughout the year now.
It fell off a llttlo In the summer and
increased a little in the winter. It's
Impossible lo give any closer estimate
than this. Even this month many
tilings were used which were left over
fronr the week previous and. on the
other bund, some things on thla list
like molasses and sugar und cornstarch
went towards reducing the total of the
month following.
This left say a dollar nnd seventy-
five cents a week for such small incidentals as are not accounted for here
but chiefly for sewing material, bargains in cloth remnants and such things
as were needed towards the repair of
our clothes as well us for such new
clothes us we had to buy from time
to time. I think we spent more on
shoes than we did clothes, but Uuth
by patronising the sample shoe shops
always came home With B three or four
dollar pair for which she never paid
over tWO dollars ami sometimes as low
as a dollar and a half. Thc boy and
I bought our shoes at the same reduction nt bankrupt sales. We gave our
neighbors this tip and saw them save
a good mnny dollars in tins way.
On the whole these peoplo were not
good buyers; they never looked ahead
but bought jnly Whetl they were in urgent need and then bought at the
cheapest price regardless of quality.
They would pay two and two and a
half for shoes thnt wouldn't Inst them
any time at all. Whntever Ruth
bought she considered the quality first
und tin* price afterwards. Then, too.
she often ran across something she didn't need at tlu- time but which was a
good bargain; she would buy this and
put tt away. She was aide to buy
many things which were oul of season for half what thc same things
would cost six months later. It was
very difficult to make our neighbors

To a man accustomed to a beefsteak breakfast, fried hasty pudding
may seem a poor substitute nnd griddle
cakes may seem well enough to tape**
oft* with, but scarcely stuff for a full
meal. All I say is. have those things
well made, have enough of them and
then try it. If a man has a sound
digestion and a good body I'll guarantee that such food will not only satisfy
him but furnish him fuel for the hardest kind of physical exercise. 1 know
berause I've tried it. And though to
some my lunches may sound light, they
averaged more In substance and variety than the lunches of my foreign fellow-workmen. A hunk of bread nnd
a bit of cheese was often all they
brought with them.
Dick thrived on It too. The elimination of pastry from his simple lun-
clieons brought hack the color to his
cheeks uml left him hard as nails.
I've road since then many articles on
domestic economy and how on a few
dollars a week a man can make many
fancy dishes which will fool him into
the belief that lie is getting the same
things which before cost him a great
many more dollars, Their object appears to be to give such a variety that
the man will not notice a change. Now
this seems to me all wrong. What's

a man lives to oat? Why not get

any more than lhe pioneer of a hundred years ago.     To me this talk thnt

means nothing but a simplifying of the
standard of living. If that's a return

The Gang
If I'd been making tlve dollars a day
at lliis time, 1 wouldn't have moved
from the tenement. In the Ilrst place
as far as physical comfort went I was
never better off. We had all tbe room
we needed. During tbe winter we
bad used tlie living room as a kitchen
and dining room just as our forefathers
did. We economized fuel in this way
iind Ruth kept lhe rooms spotless. We
had no fires in our bedrooms and did
not want any. We all of us slept with
our windows wide open. If we had
had ten mnre rooms we wouldn't have
known what lo do with them. When
we had a visitor we received him in the
kitchen. Some of our neighbors took
boarders and also slept in the kitchen.
I don't know as 1 should want to do
that, but at the same time many a
family lives in a one-room hut in the
forest afler this fashion. By outsiders
it's looked upon as rather romantic.
It isn't considered a great hardship by
the settlers themselves.
Then we had the advantage of our
roof and with summer coming on we
looked forward to Ihe garden und the
joy of the warm starry nights. Wo
hail some wonderful winter pictures,
too, from tbat same roof. It was worth
going up tliere to see the house tops
after a heavy snow storm.
If 1 had wanted to move I .could
have done only  one of two     things;
isted, All three of us were enjoying
more advantages than we had ever
dreamed would be ours. My Italian
was improving from day to day. I
(■(mid handle mortar easily and naturally and point a joint as well as my
Instructor. 1 could build a true
square pier of any size from one brick
to twenty. I could make a square
pigeon-hole corner or lay out a brick
footing. And I was proud of my accomplishment.
But more interesting to me than
anything else was the opportunity I
now had as a foreman to test the
value of the knowledge of my former
fellow workmen which I had been
slowly acquiring. I was anxious to
sec if my ideas were pure theory
or whether they were practical.
Tliey had proven practical at any rate
ia securing my own advance. This
had come about through no such pull
as Rafferty's. It was the result of
nothing but my intelligent and conscientious work in the ditch and among
the men. And this in turn was made
possible by the application of the
knowledge t picked up and used as I
had tho chance. It was only because
1 had shown my employers that I was
more valuable as a foreman than a
eotnmon laborer that I was not still
digging. I had been able to do this
because having learned from twenty
different men how to handle a crowbar, for Instance, I hnd from lime to
time been able to direct the men with
whom I wns working as at the start
I myself had been directed by Anton'. Anton' was still digging because that was all he knew. 1 had
learned other things. 1 had learned
how to handle Anion*.
1 had no Idea that my efforts were
being watched, I don't know now how
I was picked out. Except, of course,
that it must have been because of tbe
work I did.

In other words. Burns epitomized not
simply un age. but a nntlonul genius.
While. In his life.story, from the little
white cot nl A Noway, through Edinburgh to Dumfries, he himself experienced many of (hi* processes lhal have

the maule of his Muse his feet among

All that Scotland hus suffered, her
romantic history, and the manhood of
her people would have disappeared had
il nol been for Robert Burns. He preserved for ever the remembrance of iin*
antique customs, tin* old national piety

Wan Is, lhe trials, the Joys and sorrows
of their obscure lot, but lie expressed
them in the traditional forms of his
country's poetry, and in language made
musical by ids instinctive genius.
Burns was not only the Interpreter of
Scot land's peasantry, he was the restorer of her nationality. He began to
write after a century which had seen
the extinction of Scotland's Parliament
aud the removal uf all symbols of her
royalty, and in which her ancient spirit
had nearly been quenchel. While his
contemporaries were .uixlous Unit their
writing:* should not betray tbelr
nationality, Burns chose for hia subject
that Scottish life which they ignored,
and expressed it in that vernacular
which they despised, and touching the
springs of long-forgotten emotions, he
brought back to the hearts of ids
countrymen a lide of patriotic feeling
to which tliey had long been strangers.
How deeply he was in earnest is
shown in his impassioned and unparalleled popular songs, conceived ln a
mind haunted by the traditions of
Wallace and the heroic efforts of
Bruce; songs whicli re-awukeiied in
the Scots it fervid, intense patriotism
of which Ibey are now so justly proud.
Scotchmen owe it to Burns thnt their
old kingdom did not merely sink into
a province. He first turned the tide

The annals of war offer more lhan
one Instance of the fad that, with
all Us horrors, war at times has a
comic element, Armed forces relax
occasionally in friendly controversy, as
Is evidenced by u curious Incident related by the British o lllc or, General Sir
Duuiel Lysous.
This occurred during the Crimean
War while the British forces lay before Sebastopol. R sooms that among
the soldiers there was much speculation ns to the relative merits of certain English and Russian guns. One
day during the armistice a Russian officer of artillery came through ihe llritish lines to see the olllcer 111 command
of the Knglish artillery.
"Vour   'Jenny,'"   Bald   the   Muscovite,
"your elxty*eight-pounder is a line gun,
but we huve one as goml In the embrasure. We should like to have a
fair ilia*! betwetn the two."
Accordingly arrangements were made
that at noon the next day nil other
tiring should cease and lhal thc two
guns should be put to tho test.
At the hour Used a large number of
officers were assembled to view the
contest. The British sailors of the gun
detachment removed their caps and
siiluted tlie Russians, who, in turn,
saluted the Britishers. The Knglish
gun as the senior was allowed to fire
first. Rs projectile struck the side of
ilie Russian embrasure. Then the
Russians returned a good shot.
The third shot from "Jenny" went
entirely through the enemy's embrasure The Britishers, thinking that the
victory was theirs, jumped upon the
parapets and cheered lustily. They
were, howover. crowing too soon, for
a minute later the Russian gun came
again with some exceptionally clever
shots. "Jenny" got a bad thrust in her
side, which, however, did no material
At tbe seventh shot from the British
gun the Russian was knocked clean
over. Whereupon the British this time
cheered with more reason, and the
Russians,   mounting  Ihe  parapet,  took
off their cups in acknowledgment of
defeat. This finished the gun duel and
more serious hostilities were resumed.
No branch of forestry requires the
Investigation of men of science more
than lhe history of structural characters of the commercial timber trees.
It Is lamentable to see so many talented men devote their entire lives to
lhe study of small groups of relatively unimportant plants ot the desert or
the ocean, while we are still ignorant
even of tbe botanical names of a good
many trees yielding timber of commerce. A number of the trees of Wesl
Africa, whhh produce a targe percentage of the choices! timber used 111 England uml In thc United States for furniture and high-grade cabinet work,
are now known In the trade by no
olher name except mahogany, when In
reality they do nol belong to the mahogany family nt all. Cocobola from
Central America has been Imported Into Great Rrltain for over a hundred
years, but today no one seems to know
what tree yields this wood. A number of examples of this kind could be
cited In regard to Important limbers
which conic from tbc tropics.
This luck of knowledge is (he chief
reason  why so many different  w Is
which bear the slightest resemblance
imve been given th** same common or
trade name, Such a duplication of
vernacular names has produced among
the  w Is of comim-rce u confusion
and   brought  nbout  a  mass of errors
lhat II appeal** almost hopeless to expect to unravel them, For Instance,
(here are now more than fifty different woods fold under (he compre-
heiulve iia.le name mahogany; there
are more lhan twenty-live referred to
under the name cedar: there are more
than a dozen rosewoods; equally ns

On every vessel of the United States
navy, from tlie monster battleship to
the tiniest tug, is stowed away nearly
a ton of flags, which go to make up
tlie number each vessel is required te
curry for use on different occasions.
About half of this vast pile of flags
consists of emblems of foreign nations.
The making of the flag equ-ipment for
the navy costs more lhan $60,000 a
year. Each ship carries forty-three
foreign flags, which are thirteen feet
wide by twenty-five feet long.
As a ship's quota of fiags is renewed
every three yeurs lt is no small undertaking lo keep them replenished,
and to this end Uncle Sam keeps a
large ling-making establishment running al full time tho year around at
the Brooklyn navy-yard. Employed
there are some hundred skilled needlewomen working, cutting the different
colored bunting into the required
widths and sewing them together. Making the United States flag Is not a
dlllli-ull Job. Imi the making of some
of the foreign emblems is quite a different matter and (his is whnt most
ot' the work at the llag establishment
consists of. Take, for example, thc
(lag of San Salvador, in the background there is a belching volcano
"pouring forth Its lava aud white smoke,
ou tin* sides of (he mountain is the
groan foliage mid shrubbery, whilo directly In (be foreground Is a tranquil
sea of sapphire blue. Above tho volcano Is a rising sun set in a design
of overflowing cornucopias uml a diamond frnin Which Ho- rays are BO I titillating ill every dlrcclloll. To Iho left
and rlghl of lhe belching mountain
arc draped In vnrlcd design huu tiers
which hear a similarity lo the Stars
and Stripes. Around the whole concent rat ion Is a wreath of cactus
branches lovingly embracing the volcano, while at the top the date of the
country's Independence Is Inscribed. To
malic a Mai; of this description costs
thc government $ri...r,o, and when one
of these flags is placed on each ship of
the navy every three years it can be
readily seen that the Insignificant little
republic to the south of us is really
costing the taxpayers of the country
more than has ever been thought of.
Then thero Is the flag of China, with
its long, crawling, mythical, blood-rea
dragon, To make this emblem costs
about Mft- However, the flag of the,,
Republican Government of China is
more simple, and should this "stay
pul" tbe United Stales will probably
save $UU on each flag of China that It
makes hereafter.
The flag of Costn Rica, with Its
scenic beauty of mountains and sea, is
another extravagant emblem, costing
something like $50 to complete. So
It seems that the smaller thc nation
the more costly Its flag,
The largest (tag 'made by the Unilod
Slnics Is lhe Knsign No. 1, which measures Ihirty-slx feet long and nineteen feet Wide. The cost of this monster is $40 or thereabouts.
The President's flag, while not the
largest by nny means, tnkes longest to
make, requiring the labor of one person for ;i month to complete it. It is
of simple design, being a blue field
with the coat of arms of the United
States in the centre. The life-sized
eagle with oulstretched wings and
other emblems are all hand-embroidered and Involve the most patient
work. Thc embroidery silk used on
this flag, which is fourteen by ten foet,
costs i'.> ii pound.
Uncle Sam's flag emporium is In
charge of his tlagiiinster. whose business, among other things, is to test
all the bunting bought by the establishment, one day a sample lot of
bunting Is soaked and washed In sonp
and fresh water; the next day the same
process Is followed wilh salt water, lt
Is (hen exposed to the weather for ten
days, thirty hours of which time must
be In the sunlight. This Is termed
the eolor-and-fadlng test. Another
(est Is always made for the tensile
strength. A strip of the warp two
inches wide is placed In a machine and
must stand a pulling strain of sixty-
live pounds, while (wo inches of the
filling must stand a forty-five pound
All over tbe floor of the workshop
are arranged chalk lines and metal
markers, by Ihe aid of which tbe fiags
are cut out. Large stripes and cortain designs tan be more conveniently
studied this way. The sewing Is done
by women on machines run by electric
li is un interesting sight to see tho
big mschlno at work cutting out stars
for the United Stales flags. It is (he
only machine of Us kind In the lulled
States,    It consists of a plunger fitted
wllh steel knives the size of (he star
wanted and wllh a single downward
stroke II lays on a table one hundred
stars. There are eight different sizes
of slurs used for the different flags,
and of COUrtO the machine Is provided
with eight different dies for the purpose. Until recent yeurs these stars
were cut out by bund, which wan a
long ami tedious task, but now a day's
work of the machine will supply stars
for a week's work on ling***.
Speaking (o a Chinese gentleman tho
other duy, mi Englishman asked him if
tho Chinese Indies will emulate tho
men and go In for Western headgear.
In reply he beamed a smile most childlike and bland.
PrOSVOd for something more definite,
he remarked: "Did you not know that
it Is a well-known fact among the
Chinese thut Ihe reason so many European husbands look harassed nnd
cnrerldden nml lhe further reason why
so many of your young men refrnln
from marriage is this very question
of millinery, Ladles' hats cost so much
thut they spell ruin nud so wo Chinese

Not many hours ngo, he had brought
ff a very successful coup, the third
he had accomplished from the dangerous, detective-ridden precincts ' of a
world-famous tirm of jewelers. His
victim had lieen a man—a large and
muscular-looking young man—so that
the adventure hail heen more perilous,
md in retrospect filled Slip with a
more complacent satisfaction. He hud
followed his intended victim for blocks
before he had seen him joyfully greeted by friends and dragged, with some
show of reluctance Into the crowded
bar of a big cafe,
There the crowd and the hilarity of
the new-met friends had given Slip bis
opportunity. He had been unable to
get at the wallet, which he suspected
made thnt bulge In the young man's
breast pocket, but he was well eon-
tent with what he had found in a side
pocket—a small, square, cushion-topped box, which he had had lit mind
from the very flrst.
Now, as he sat watching the girl, he
fell th,* big diamond with appraising
thumb. The box he bad kicked into a
convenient Sewer, lie knew pockets too
well to trust them, und be had slipped
th erlng upon his Hide Knger, with the
stone turned Inward. He kept feeling
it nervously, much us a child will feel
wllli his tongue lhe unfamiliar gap of
a new-lost tooth; for it fitted insecurely. He hail tried It on his third linger,
at Ilrst, hut it was just too smalt, Slip's
hands were slender and graceful, as
became his profession, (ind on his
little linger the ring hung loosely.
Tho train was fast gelling downtown. The girl might, he reflected, get
out at any station, if she had been
bent on Shopping, he would have lost
ber already. He sternly collected his
wandering thoughts. A man should
bo above superstition. Besides, the
thing he had done had been outside his
custom, a dilettante excursion, taken
partly for pure excitement, a successfully gratified whim of bis that surely
could bave no effect upon bis subseiiuent legitimate business. This womnn was fair game, ami possibly rich
game. It was folly to delay tiny longer.
The train was grinding into a station. When the doors were flung open,
a puff of wind blew his newspaper,
flapping wide, across her lap and into
her very face. Under Us cover, Slip's
practised hand stole Into ber pocket,
while he murmured profuse and awkward apologies. I.eila hardly hoard
them, for she (oo bud been dreaming,
and she realized with a start  that the
guard was shooting bis distortion of

She sprung to her feel, arid with
some eXOltomont made her wny to lhe

her close against his shoulder.
"That's a lovely flrst remark,' he

Those are the words of Mrs. Bile Amirault of this place. They are words
that have been iised uguin and again
by women in all parts of Canada who
hnve suffered, and who have found
relief and cure in Dodd's Kidney Pills.
"I suffered for over a year from kidney disease," Mrs. Amirault continues,
"Nothing I tried helped me. At last
some one told me to try Dodd's Kid
ney Hills. Before I had finished the
flrst box I felt better. Four boxes
made a new woman of me."
No remedy ever given to the public
has brought health and happiness into
the lives of so many women iis Dodd's
Kidney Hills. This Is because nine
tenths of the ills to which women are
subject come from diseased kidneys.

Owing to so much unfavorable weather, many farmers over Western
Canada have gathered at least part of their crop touched by frost or
otherwise water damaged. However, through the large shortage In
corn, oats, barley, fodder, potatoes and vegetables, by the unusual heat
and drought of last summer In the United States, Eastern Canada and
Western Europe, there is going lo be a steady demand at good prices
for all tho grain Western Canada hus raised, no matter what Its quality
may be.
So much variety lu quality makes it impossible for those less experienced to judge the full value thnt should be obtained for such grain,

Art; you ti lover of Egyptian cigarettes? it' so, you may bo surprised to
loarn thai Egyptian clgarottos never
by any chance contain Egyptian to-
bacco. If they did.' Indeed, its presence
would bo Illegal.
The reason is tliat it was by the use
nf Turkish tobacco that Egyptian
cigarette merchants made Egyptian
cigarettes famous. Gradually they
started using tbeir own eheaper and
Inferior native tobacco, Mut Uie ISgyp
tian government stepped in. and in
18U1 made the presence of Egyptian
tobacco Illegal In Egyptian cigarettes.
In fact there is nothing Egyptian about
Egyptian cigarettes except 'that they
come from Cairo, There they are made
with Turkish tobacco, with Austrian
paper, and by Greek workmen.
Tho peculiar "Egyptian twang" Is
duo to tho use blending or Ayasaloolt
a peculiarly pungent tobacco from
Asiatic Turkey. Contrary to popular
belief, no opium Is used In the blend
Another popular belief with no
foundation in fact, is that tho cheapest
cigarettes owe something to Uie out-
of-work who fishes "fans" out of the
gutter. Don't believe it! Any manu
facturer using such sources would lie
liable tu a fine of $1,000. and no cane
has ever occurred.

Interesting history of Little Brown .lug,
from whicli the following is quoted:
"Little Brown Jug's history Is so
unique I think It well deserves to bo
given here. In 1874, Mr. O. N. Fry, of
Mooresville, Tenn., was tbe owner of
Gibson's Tom Hiil, who was making
the season at |fi by tho Insurance, and
if, when tho colt was old enough to
Wean, it did not show the saddle gaits
im fee whatever was charged. A neighbor of Mr, Fry then owned a mare
named Lizzie, liy Johh Nelheriand, a
paclng-bred horae, Mr. Fry happened
to meet the owner of Lizzie one day
ami suggested to him the advisability
of breeding Lizzie to Tom Hal; hut
Um owner of Lizzie demurred, saying
In* could raise a mule, and that wben
the mule was a year old he could sell
It for JM*". which was much better than
he eould do raising colts. Finally, Mr.
Pry propi sod that If ho would breed
to Tom Hal he would pay him $f»0 for
the colt when It was a yenr old. If
sound and all right. This proposition
was accepted, and ono day tho next
year Uie mnn nppeared at Mr. Fry'H

Little Brown Jug (foaled April 18,
187.r,), which this man had brought to
Mr. Fry pursuant to their contract, ns
he claimed, and demntided tho JRO.
When Mr. Fry saw the colt he refused
to receive him, and told the mnn he
did not want sueh a looking colt upon
his place. The ninii saitl he hail no
monoy aud had relied upon tin* prnmls-
<-d $50 lo buy the nocossarles for his
rurally and finally Mr. Frj i «>f sympathy but under protest, took lh.* coll
and paid the $511. After a thorough
cleaning utul cleansing the coll was
given plenty to eat uml Improved very
rapidly. The next year Mr. Fry leased
ii   portion  of  hts  farm  to a  colored
uian to work on Bhat'US, wh,, had im

Brown .lug was two years old lo- was
sold by Mr. Fry lo this colored man
lor $75. Tbe colored man broke him to
harness and used him lo plow the land
.md imi in his crops; nnd iu addition
I.* this work every Sunday his wile and
two or Hirer children would gol  upon
lh,-   back   Of  the  cull   and   ride  several
miles io church; and, in addition to all
Ihls,   the   colored    man's    son    had    a
sweetheart   who   livod   tw ■   throo
miles from liis home, and lie would
lake Ihis (-It, after having worked him
sill day, and go acroBS the fields to the
] home of his sweetheart, hitch him outdoors, where ho would stand with nothing to eat ami often in storms until
the early hours of the morning. This
performance was repeated several
times a week during the entire season.
When fall cume tlie colt wns in a pitiable condition and showed liis bard usage Very plainly. Tbut full the wife of
the colored man was taken sick, und,
afler attending hor for some time, tlie
doctor refused lo come any more unless Mr. Fry would become responsible
for his bill, which he finally consented
to do, and the doctor attended her until
she died. Tbe doctor's hill was **_.,
and seeing there was no other way out
of the difficulty the colored man gave
the colt to Mr. Fry iind he paid Uie doe-
tor the $-0. At tbat time lhe colt could
not be sold for $60 iind .Mr. Fry only
allowed that amount for him because
there was nothing else for him to do.
The colt was then turned out and with
rest iind plenty of feed soon commenced to improve, and in the summer and
fall of 187S, when the colt was three
years old, Mr. Fry rode blm to the colt
shows iind fairs and soon discovered
thnl lie could pace fast, and tbe next
year placed him in the hands of a
trainer who trained on a half-mile
track near Lewisburg, Tenn. The rapidity with which he improved was
simply astonishing, aud in a few weeks
thai half-starved and much abused colt
became one of the speediest horses that
iiad up to Unit time ever heen seen In
harness. I saw him at Nashville the
following spring, and gave him a workout, find I do not think I was ever behind ii stronger, easier going horse.
Ills conformation was the most remarkable of any horse ever seen upon
the turf. He was only about fifteen
hands high, a rich brown in color, bis
slim neck, small ears, large expressive
eyes, and finely-molded head, clearly
showed the thorough-bred blood which
he had inherited; but the most remarkable thing about him was his abnormal muscular development. His for**
tegs were large, flat and well tapered,
iind bis bind quarters were so Immense
as lo make blm look like it deformity.
What he was as a racehorse we know,
but what he might have been had he
received tlie cure and attention in his
early career bestowed upun promising
nice horses In modern limes Is a matter of conjecture, it is claimed by reliable people Unit be paced a trial quarter on a poor half-mile track the first
season he was bandied lu thirty seconds, and that tbe next year he paced
a balf mile to a high-Wheeled sulky In
one minute and many people still believe him lo havo been possessed of as
much natural speed as any horse that
ever lived, and I am not prepared to
say but what this belief is well founded."

Let us tuke the ense of Peter the
Groat. This horse's early home was
Michigan. His owner and driver
made him feel they Wire bis friends.
His training wns more a pleasure to him
(ban a labor. He was taught to trot
in tbe old lohool wny of careful, easy
training. He only trotted two races
for his breeder. Onco he lost, the
otber, his second, was an easy win.
This horse changed hands nnd went
to Massachusetts, with a brain full
of nothing but plensant memories. His
first senson'-i fools included Sadie Mac.
Then bis powers wero put to tho severest test, as a four-year-old ho met
aged   horses.      His   races   were   ex-

haustlng, His season ended, he returned to his new homo to live In a
close box. What he saw on one. side
was the rock-ribbed blue hills, on thu
otber side wus some pasture that was
more sorrel than grass.
This horse, a bundle of nerves, entered the stud a nervous wreck iind in
each year's crop of fouls, therefore, no
Sadie Mae was produced. When sold
he was a nervous, thin, dejected-looking horse.
Luckily, he passed to u farm lu Kentucky. Here amid scenes thut do-
lighted his eye lie gradually became
normal, rnd from lhat time bis history in tlie stud has lieen crop after
crop of futurity winning colts. Hnd
this horse stayed in Massachusetts he
would  huve  been  culled a  failure.
Why did this horse get one sort of

the failure !n one section and the suc-
eess in another be explained in any
other way thun hy the production of
entirely new germs of life in two habitations? Whal but the mental Impression made on these germs at the

Which is the Finest Race?
In these days, when tbe science of
human breeding is attracting widespread attention, Is it not Important
that we should huve some standard ot
physical perfection set before U8?
Wo are so accustomed to regard the
ancient Greeks us having generally attained the maximum of human beauty
that It Is something of a shock to he
told by more than one scholar that the
Greeks, oven of the age of Pericles,
were, on the whole; u plain, undersized
lot. and that it Is chiefly to the art of
the sculptor that they owe their national reputation, The Ideal Greek
standard us displayed in their sculpture is, however, generally regarded as
the highest of which the human race la
Capable, and, at any rate, u convenient
text upon which to base onr symposium.
The late Lord Lelghton, I'.K.A., snld:
"Unquestionably tho nearest approach to the Greek female type is
the modern Knglish-woman of Uie upper und upper-mldilte class. The original of  the   Venus de   Mil..,   were she
le appear amongst us today, would
probably bo regarded us n typical Englishwoman, There are the long limbs,
the eloquent lines and freedom frnin
embonpoint, und tho placid dignity nf
bearing which distinguishes tho Englishwoman from her sisters mi tin* Continent. With the men II Is different,
other ruces the Italians, the Turks,
tin* South Nra Islanders ure inure
Symmetrica), and even more virile. Itut
tlm [Englishwoman in peerless."
Itut do other authorities concede this
. superiority    even  in   EBnglishwomon?
There Is  Professor Otto  Uerginniin, of
Munich, whoso dictum is us follows:
"The Knglish frequently arrogate to
themselves u physical perfection ns a
raco which tbey ure fur from having
attained. While it is true that amongst
tbelr upper classes height and symmetry ure often met with, yet uny
BOUlptor will t.ll ynu that tbe Italians
are far their superior In symmetry ami
the Turks In stature. I should put the
Bwlss or the Scandinavian races above
tho Knglish. The natives of Samoa
are probably the most beautiful rue
In the world. Kven the French huv
far belter hair, eyes, und teeth thun
the Knglish. Most Englishwomen are
fur too angular and stooping to
form to uny classical standurd of
beauty, while our Germans have far
tod much embonpoint."
Now let us see whnt our authorities,
painters, sculptors, anatomists, eugen-
Ists, physical eulturists, bave to say to
this. Kvery picture*lover knows tli.
predilection for physical beauty expressed by Mr. Marcus Stone, R.A., In
his canvases, Ills human figures are
there all comely, all symmetrical, all
attractive. This famous painter would
sin against his artistic canons were he
to delineate physical Imperfection.
"The Anglo-Saxon," he writes,
"amongst the nations whose characteristics 1 have had an opportunity of
carefully observing, is more often lacking in any suggestion of the "Hellenic
standard' of form than any other race
—except the German, who are of our
"Our Inarticulate and Incomplete
type of form is more murked In women than ln men,
"If we cross the Channel and move
southward, we at once find a marked
Improvement. The Freneh have hands
—a very unfinished appendage with us.
"I once saw about a hundred French
soldiers marched on to the sea-shore
to bathe. Tbelr average form was,
without question, very superior to the
nude seen In our country.
"The movement Is more varied, expressive, and 'true' with the French,
Italian, and eastern nations. The ungainly, constrained action of the British rape is opposed to even development. Tlie Knglish artisan affects nipenn country of the same class. Our
stooping, lop-sided slouch. The French games, public schools, and universities
and Italian workmen have a natural [have done much to develop our bod-
movement and deportment; the self- lea. Our sports—hunting, golf,
conscious Knglish an unCQUth and Inex-; cricket, football--have all had a hand
presslve demeanour. The Italian Is a! in this great work, and I am not
typical human creature. The self-con- ashamed of the men and women I meet
scions cultivation of uncoutbness and , of our cluss. I consider tbem, physl-
inexpresslveness permeates all classes |cally aud morally, superior to any other
nnd both sexes In England. Our want! In Kurope."
of grace Is largely tbe effect, but In a!    "The question of tbe finest people,"
average In this way, 1 certainly do not
regard the English race us beautiful.
There is no doubt that the standurd of
physical perfection Is very low in some
parts of the country, particularly in the
large manufacturing towns, and our
average is thus rendered decidedly
poor. Occasionally I have met n
young man or woman of the country
fur above the average, and more nearly
approaching the true Grecian type
than the best specimens I have
seen of otber nations that I have visited. The Italians and other southern
races aro certainly more graceful In
their movements (tlie Arabs, for Instance, possess a dignity which tho
Englishman does not begin to attempt),
and nre finer in appearance than average Englishmen,
"I think that the German raco averages physically rather higher Uuin our
own. Tor they have the advantage of
universal military training) a measure
whicli. IT Introduced In (his country,
would produce nn immense improvement iu the honlth, strength, .ami
beauty of the nation"
"English beauty is good enough for
nte," writes Mir Lawrence Almu-Tad-
etiui. It.A., utul this palmer's knowledge
of both Greek and I toman beauty Is
considered profound,
"I am sure." says Mr. Itrltoii Ittvlere,
K.A., "Unit lhe avorngo standard of
beauty among Englishwomen has Improved during my lifetime, uml nlso her
grOWth   and   Physical   development,   but
I um afraid I cannot suy the sume of
Englishmen. To get at the true typo
one must study those who for genera-
lions have been well nourished and
well cared for that Is to suy, (he upper clnsses; and amongst our society
women will be found u general standard of beauty unequalled by any other
race of the world that I huve seen,
What Lord Lelghton said—that thc
Englishwoman certainly aprpoaohee
most nearly to the clash* Greek  type
1 believe to be true.
"Tbe average size of our men has,
I Ihlnk, Increased. 1 believe Unit
most of Ihe suits of armor at the
Tower of London would lie too small
for the use of an average man at the
present day. Hut I do not think they
iire more handsome or of better phy
slque than the public-school boys and
university men of forty years ago.
"1 entirely agree with Mr. Marcus
Stone In all he says about the more
expressive movements of the Italian
and eastern races. Tell an Englishman to hold out his arm, and it shoots
out stittly and deliberately. | The Italian will perform tbe same action with
a graceful sweep which cannot easily
he described In words, but of which
the grace Is very apparent to the beholder."
Sir William Goscombe John, R.A., believes that the Southern Italians are
probably the finest race in the world.
"External symmetry of contour Is less
requently met with amongst the northern races. It Is true they have not
Stature, but stature often implies disproportion of the limbs, and also
gauntness or angularity, which Is associated with the fair-haired peoples."
From the exponents of art, let us
turn to the anthropologists, the writers
on eugenics, the physical eulturists, and
Inst but not least, to the travellers.
Thus, the author of "The Living Races
of Mankind," Mr. H. N. Hutchinson,
"As to the whole Knglish race, they
may or mny not be inferior—so much
depends on a man's or woman's occupation and surroundings. Rut 1
really do think that tbe men and women of England who belong to the
upper-middle class and hnve had a
good education are a better type phy-
cally than those of any other Euro-
small degree Ihe cause, of our lack of
distinction In form."
Flatly opposed to this opinion is that
of the celebrated sculptor, Mr. Hamo
Thornycroft, R.A.. whose "Teucer" and
"Arlemls" testify to bis Greek spirit:
"Circumstances and environment so
soon affect tbe physical aspect that to
discover the type of a people it is essentia! to look ut the youug and unspoilt of those In comfortable and well-
to-do conditions. The 'Hellenic standard" soon disappears lu tbe wear and
tear of elty life. Fashion may try to
hide the type—may appear to destroy
It for a tlmt
from adults.
"I fear that my knowledge of European nations Is Insufficient for mo to
Judge where one approaches nearest to
the Greek  standard,  but  of nil cities
with which I nm ucqttalntetl thero la
none tu wifIch one sees so many beau-
11 itul women us In western London,   The
| greater part of our metropolis Is now
i so foreign as to be no longer English.
I During the disastrous  period of    the
I Smith African war it wus customary
[ for the Illustrated papers to give photo-
I graphic portraits of the scores of ofll-
| eers.   mostly   young,   who   were   killed.
This   wns   no   list   selected   for   their
| good  looks,  but   probably  selected by
j Death  bOCaUSfl tbey were the bravest.
|In that long gallery of portraits I think
! saw the English type, and 1 believe ll
I might safely challenge any country In
Ifhe  World  to show n type  nearer to
|tbe 'Hellenic' standard."1
Mr, Frank Dlcksee, R.A., holds the
I lplnlon that no true decision can be
I irrlvod at by comparing particular
•lasses; but thnt only by examining the
liverage types of each nation can any
I'tilr comparison be made. "The sub-
1 'oot, therefore." he aaya, "not only re-
|,'iilres much thought, but a vast
I'lmount of travel In order that one may
lieeome acquainted with nil tho different types of each people.     Taking nn
writes Dr. C. W. Saleeby, the well-
known exponent of eugenics or rnee-
eulture and tbe author of "Parenthood,"
"does certainly concern those who are
what I call eugenists. Physical beauty
and efficiency—so closely allied—are
among the objects ut which we are
bound to aim. But what the present
facts are I do not know. Such chances
of observation as I have bad lead me
to iigree with the i p.nlon quoted, on
the whole.
"But, really, you know, there is nn-
oth r question. If we study Sir
G.'-rge Newman's last report, we find
If one forms an opinion j that tbe nation's school-children are
|abominably neglected; inspected, yes:
treated, no. If malnutrition Is the
rule among our urban slocks, antl prevails through the whole period of development, as we permit It. In our ig-
nornnce nnd carelessness, to do, how
can we expect to approach the Hellenic standard- that of a race which
consciously aimed at physical fitness,
and begun with Its young people?
"The Lowland Scotch used to be unsurpassed for stature.      But  now thc
hlldren   have   jnm   nntl   white   hread
und to women, to the lower-class Venc
Hans. Of course, wben you speak of
a fine man or womnn, ur a fine horse
or dog, much depends upon what class
of animal you are speaking of. But
if you mean symmetry, suppleness,
erect carriage, good hair, eyes, teeth,
well-shaped hands and feet, then I say
you will find tlio solection I have mado
hard to beat.
"You can, of course, find greater
height, greater strength, more roundness. The Zulu is a fine animal, but
his hands and feet, to say nothing of
his features, are against him, in addition to the question of hair. I-ank,
colorless hair Is also a drawback
amongst most of the northern races,
and Indifferent teeth would lose them
a point or two. The French have a
term—race—whieh expresses full-
bloodedness, a richness of blood and
bearing which Is very uncommon ln
northern countries, but which 1 luivo
found very'Vommou in Spain."
"Ono of the finest object-lessons,"
writes Professor Meredith Clease,
"given to the British public ou race
perfection was on the occasion of tbo
lust Olympic Games. Some dozen different countries seni picked representatives from the flower of their youth.
On the opening dny tliere was a grant!
parade of the nations before our lute
King Edward. I had tin* honor of
assisting in the marshalling of this
historic gathering. Tim entire body,
iu countries, marched around the arena,
uud the unanimous opinion was tbut
the British contingent wus by far the
poorest specimen present, both in physique und deportment; as a matter
f fact, the llritish section looked very
much undersized. True, the British
election committee could have placed
u much liner ami more representative
body on tlie field If tbey had chosen.
Apart from this demonstration at tbe
t Hyuiple gathering three years ago,
there are nu means today of judging
which nation Is Die finest in physique.
During my Lwonty-BlX years' experience ! have examined and measured
some hundreds of thousands of both
sexes unit of all classes. I am bound
admit that the average physical
standard of the British race is decreasing in both height and general physique, while, to my knowledge, with
one other nation—the American—it is
Increasing. Tbe reason for this difference is not ftir to seek. In America those responsible for the welfare
tif that nation have fully recognized
that the overcrowding of cities, the
increased hustte and bustle for existence, must eventually mean the phy-
Indlans, and   in  Uie highest degree-
by many oi the races or India.
"As fur as concerns female beauty
of features and of coloring, lhe United
Kingdom stands first, and Ireland contributes (lie largest share to this British victory in lhe world's beauty competition. Hut—there Is a 'but'—tho
beauty of British girls and women is
marred—-except in the case of the Irish
—by luck tif vivacious expression. Tbe
face Is too often il stony mask; It
frequently wears a haughty expression
or one of suspicion, so tliat the chisel
led features or the smooth curves, the
large, clear eyes with their long lashes,
the lovely complexion, lose the greater
part of their artistic value.
"The figure of tho British woman
has Improved of late years, but her
gait is still deplorable. That of the
men varies between the free swing of
the athleto and lho uncouth slouch
common to Ihe Etonian and the 'clodhopper.'
Less self-consciousness and more
hclenllllcally - thought - out physical
training would work wonders in Improving the gait antl bearing of tho
English people. Universally mllltcry
training, aparently visible before many
ars have passed, will probably ensure this Improvement,
"For tin* present. I would award the
prise for manly beauty to those warlike races of India— Sikhs and Rajputs; for female beauty of face lo tbe
women of Ireland, of form to the girls
of Samoa, ami, in Europe, to those of
Central Italy."
Sir ID m os I Shaolcleton writes:---
"1 have never heard 11 slated before
that the English arrogate to themselves
a physical perfection which they aro

never heard lhal tbo Knglish desired

the Polynesians antl Italians have a
symmetry in appearance on finer lines

wllh u certain amount tif knowledge
as 1 have visited every country in the
world, from China to the South Seas,
and the conclusion thnt I have come
to is that symmetry and graceful appearance count but little, and that virility antl muscular strength, though
perhaps not heautlful in outward form,
are the determining factors in success, coupled with brains—and who
will deny the brain-power of the Anglo-
Saxon race? If one tnkes the portraits of nearly every great man of any

authorities of all thc larger cities have

that Boston (about the size of our
Liverpool) had no fewer than six fully-
quipped physical training schools, each

the earth with open eyes.     Mr. Arthur

'The average Individual belonging to

Sir Sven Hedln says:
"In physical accomplishment there Is
no race In Europe that could be compared with the Swedes and Norwegians. 1 mean specially In height, as
has been statistically proved as clearly as possible. As un average, nt
other nation in Europe has so high
grown men and women as Sweden, and
I dare say they are as well grown as
those of any other nation.
"Everybody who comes to the Olym

to call the Englishwomen 'too angular.'

When sewnge Is mixed witb wuter
the organic material becomes oxidized
In time, the eurbon forming carbon
dioxide and the nitrogen anil sulphur
forming, respectively, nitric and sulphuric aold. The carbon dioxide
escapes ns a gus, though n considerable
quantity may remain in solution In the
water; and the acids combine with
other substances, forming mineral
salts. This oxidation Is carried on indirectly, dependent upon the activity
tif various micro-organisms, especially
certain kinds of bacteria. But the activity of these bacteria depends upor
the presence of oxygen In the water.
The fresh water of lakes, ponds, etc.,
contains rolattvely more oxygen than
does sen water, tbe difference bclnir In
tbe ratio of about 10 to 8. But If tho
oxygen Is removed from the water tho
sea water recovers oxygen from the
nir sn much faster that It more thnn
makes up for the difference. Thun n
given body of sea wnler will absorb In
twenty-four hours more than two nntl
a half times as much oxygen as nn
equal body of fresh water, provided
thc oxygen Is constantly renioved. For
these rensons sewage may be more
rapidly destroyed In salt water than ln
fresh wnter.
It had been supposed that the salt In
sen  water would have a preservative
by tbe bacteria.   Experiments made in
England bring out the fact that there is
no difference in the rate of carbon
oxidation between fresh water nnd sea
water, hut for nitrogen fermentation
the sea water has a slight retarding
Tho contamination of tlie water In
the sense of destroying animal life Is
another question that lias been investigated by government engineers. It has
been generally supposed that the
emptying of sewage into streams and
lakes, etc., woultl be Injurious to thi;
fish, and Indeed It Is well known that
the fish of many a stream have been
driven out or killed off by sewage antl
other refuse. But it has heen found by
more careful observations that tbe
sewage (toes no direct harm to fishes,
On (he contrary, many species of fish
make direct use of the refuse us food,
while others thrive In the neighborhood of sewer openings where tbe fish
food is exceptionally abundant, This
is explained by (he fact tbat tlie minute
animals in the water, various species
of Crustacea, tnollusks, worms, etc.,
upon which the fishes chiefly feed, are
In turn nourished liy smaller particles
of organic debris brought into the
water liy the sewers. The ease
of the bass may be cited as that
of a lish lhat feeds directly upon sewage solids. The Romans bud observed
this in ancient times. The best Imss
for the epicures were obtained from
(he Tilier ut (he mouth of the Grenl
Sewer. The fad (hat emptying large
quantities of sewnge im.. bodies of
frflsh water has actually resulted in the
death til' fishes is explained by the fact
that Ibe sewage takes Up large quan
titles of oxygen from the wuter so thut
the lish die of suffocation. If the quantity of the sewage Is below a certain
proportion of the uncontamlnated
water the fish are benefited.
Another important point to be considered Is the danger of infecting
oysters and other edible water animals
with disease germs from the sewage.
The British government experts have
concluded that the discharge of sewage
into the sea or into tidal rivers is perfectly safe and they recommend this
practice for a number of cities. If this
plan is put into effect It will mean the
saving of great expense and the Improvement of sanitary conditions for
a largo portion tif the population.
The man who manufactures artificial
eyes works In a dark room, at best but
dimly lighted by a little lamp. Although
the methods of manufacture are more
or less a mystery, artificial eyes have
been made since the beginning of history. When tho flrst dynasties of the
Pharoahs ruled, Egyptian embalmcrs
set Imitations of eyes in the eye sockets
of their mummified subjects. The natural orbits were filled with plaster and
with wax and on either side, In the firm
beds thus formed, a precious stone was
set to simulate the iris of the eye to be.
When the plaster hardened, when the
stones were firmly fixed, most of the
Wax and plaster was removed and a
shell of silver or other metal was put
In place of them, veined with red, and
perforated In tho centre to show tbe
precious stone. Eyes made of white
marble ringed with cobalt blue or with
greenish glass have been found ln ancient Egyptian sarcophagi.
The Greeks and Romans placed artificial eyes ln the heads of their statues. The artificial eye is mentioned
in the Talmud, but no man of ancient
times attempted to insert eyes In a
living human head. The flrst mention
of such an attempt Is that of Ambroise
Pare, who published an illustrated description of an eye of human manufacture such as expert goldsmiths could
and did produco In his time (the sixteenth century). As It was difficult to
lodge such eyes and hold them ln
place, people who aspired to wear them
were admonished to use the eyes formed by frames of very light flattened
wire bent into ovals, covered on the
Inside with soft silk or velvet to pro-
vent bruising the flesh, and on the outer or upper side covered with leather
painted to represent the human eye.
Fmm thc beginning of the seventeenth century the art made rnpld progress and false eyes were well known.
Glass eyes came Into use early In the
ninelecnth century. About the year
1840 an Amsterdam glass-blower named Demmenle Introduced an enameled
eye. Since then many attempts have
been made to use more durable plastic
mnterlal (vulcanite, celluloid, etc.), but
nothing has been found to supersede
the eye of enamel. When subjected to
the action of fire, enamel or silicate
of potash lakes a polish which shines
like the natural eye nnd Is affected
neither hy the eye secretions nor by
the incessnnt friction of the eye-Ilds.
The manufacturers .obtain tho colors
of the natural Iris and pupil by adding
different metallic oxides to the crystal
t»f which the shells are made. The
Opaque White Of the eye Is produced
by tbe use of oxide of tin; oxide of
cobalt gives IndlgO blue; the clear blue
of the natural eye Is obtained by using
copper. Protoxide of copper Is used
in coloring the little veins: oxide or
copper und Iron with a little bichromate of potash color the eyes greenish
gray, oxide of silver nnd other oxides
are mixed with the enamel In making a
brown eye; oxide of manganese gives
a very naturul and soft violet.
The eye-maker's chief tool Is au en-
ameler's tump—a small tin receptacle
with a cover. In the bottom of the re-
eptaele are three brass tubes whose
extremities curve toward the lamp and
in each tube or burner Is a cotton wick.
The tire is blown to u flame by n foot
bellows and the fluid Is fed Into the
burners by a pipe.
Eye-making is an art demanding
minute and incessant enre In every tl
tall. The work tries the eyes as It
tries the lungs; but while an eye
maker works at his trad* he
must see with unfailing accuracy and
make his color measurements with
critical precision. He works ln the
dark because the work of bis tamp cannot be clearly done lu the light. Peering at bis flame and working his bellows wilh his feet, he guides the Are
horizontally until lt burns blue. It
must burn blue tn do Its work. A
white heat does nothing but tone the
colors of the enamel. The crystal's
first form is a tube; then when the
tube Is formed the workman solders a
drop of while enamel In the tube's orifice, heats it red bot, and blows It to
the size and shape of a marble and perforates It with a conical punch.   Then
dropping the marble, still on its tube,
he forms an iris, using for that part of
tbe work a crystal wand or maiilstlck.
lie paints in the rays of his t-rls with
enameling pencils, using a drop of
black enamel fr the pupil. That do-
tail finished, he t\\m the iris to the eyo.
This is the method of the French manufacturer.
The German eye manufacturer fixes
the iris directly to Ibe ball without perforation, liy that means he augments
the middle of tho eyo. As a result the
frontal chamber of tho eye lacks depth,
but the German enamel Is too transparent to he used In nny other way.
Whon the iris has been fixed lo tho
ball the workman sections the crystal,
leaving a drop thick enough to give the
eye chamber the appearance of a raised
body. Then lie paints In the veins.
The "blowing" is ended. But a very
delicate work Is still to be done: the
eye must ho separated from the tubo
from which it was blown. Some eyc-
makers accomplish ihe separation In
tlie flame, Others clip along the edge
of the finished shell until it Is nil but
free from the lube, when, finishing tho
task with a snip of (he tin knife, they
Seize the hot eye with nippers and put
It ln the box to cool.
Artlllelul eyes are fragile; uny sudden movement or a quick pressure on
Uie bellows iind the delleute shell
breaks or fissures, The coloring process is equally delicale and difficult, No
mu* but uu expert of fine critical per- •
ooptlons can color an artificial eye.
Five or six years ago Dr. Richard
Werner announced the results of some
experiments In which he found that the
normal tissues of the human body produco an effect upon photographic
plates very much like that of radium
emanations or the X-rays. Similar
experiments were repeated by other Investigators with the tissues of rabbits
and other animals. Dr. Albert Caan,
of the Heidelberg Institute for Cancer
Research, carried these experiments
still farther. He examined material
from different parts of the body and
for Indicating the presence of radiations he used, i.n addition to the photographic method, a very delicate Instrument — Becker's emanometer — which
shows the slightest change tn the conductivity of the air. Since the radium
emanations and the X-rays cause proportional increases in the conductivity
of the atmosphere, this Instrument id
the most sensitive index of the presence of such radiations in small quantities.
Equal quantities of the different tissues were taken—about three and ._
half ounces. T>.e material was reduced
to ashes and tlie ashes were used in
the experiment. Ferty-one specimnns
were taken In all from twelve different
bodies. The brain presented the greatest amount of radioactivity, the heart
coming second, and the Uver next. The
kidneys and the spleen were almost inactive, while the lungs were practically
without effect In attempting to <:or-
relate the intensity of the action ut rtie
tissues with the social and eeon.-mn:
status of the persons from whose bodies
the material was taken. Dr. Caan eould
roach no conclusions; the eoaehman,
the business man, and the professional
mun showed nothing distinctive wtth
regard to the radioactivity of their
ashes. But the age of tha subject did
seem to have a striking influence upon
the intensity of the radioactivity. The
otder the person, the more active tht*
ashes. Although the number of bod:"**-
used was too small to allow broad generalizations to be made, it was tnferr-d
that ill health tended to increase the
amount of radiation.
The material that produces these
effects is probably taken into the body
with the food and drink or In breathing; this would account fnr the increase In the quantity with the advance
of age. Dr. Caan has formulated no
theory as to the relation of the radioactivity to the vital processes nor as
to Its effect upon these processes.
These findings are In significant con-.
trndlctlon to the vulgar notion that th*»
vital fluid gives off some kind of "radi-
ntfons" thnt have been compared to the
X-rnys nnd to other poorly understood
Flour that Is exposed to the air or
stored even in paper bags for a long
time gradually becomes bleached. This
effect seems to be due to the combinin-*
of the coloring-matter In the flour wirh
nitrogen oxides. This combination is
not poisonous. The same results can
be attained by treating wh« .t or corn
flours with oxides of nitrogen, thus
hastening the "aging" process. Ther<*
is no advantage in the aging of flour,
but this has been done by .1. A. Wiener nml George L. Teller, of Chicago,
for the purpose of obtaining quantities
of "aged" (lour to use In experiments
upon digestion,
The nitrite formed in the flour by
aging has no effect upon the action of
diastase In the digestion of starch; ami
artificially added nitrite has no effect
even when present in the proportion of
one part in a thousand. Nitric and
nitrous add do not Interfere wltb the
action of the stomach jut..* and mny
even be advantageous When the aas-
ttlc fluid Is sub-acid. Tin* presence of
nitrites in the flour do« not Interfen*
wltb the digestive netion tif the pan-
reatic juice, In none of the cummer-
tally bleached flours that they examined did these chemists find mineral
nitrites or adds present. It would
seem that, so far at least as the bleaching effect of aging, old flour is as
llgestlble as new and produces no un-
leslrable efTects upon the digestion.
Severn! formulae have been proposed for pasting celluloid articles. One
which Is found serviceable Is the following: Prepare n mixture of three
pans of alcohol and four parts of
ether find keep this in a well stoppered
bottle. When two surfaces of celluloid are to be placed together, wet
them thoroughly with this mixture nnd
repeat the operation until tho sub-
statice has become softened, and then
press them together for twenty-four
hours. Another solution which may
be used is one containing one part of
camphor In four parts of alcohol, to
which one part of shellac scale Is
added.    This cement must be applied
