Woman's Advance in the Investment Field
There was a time-and 1\™*\»«JZT*&%X™™"
■dtitt of tiir woman investor, she bad
to in.1 extremely rich, and was likewise
:m  aloof  aud   well nigb futhultlin^   .g
Today Mra, Green hns a wide host of
slaters, not precisely ttln In extent ot
bank account, tint close enough to snare
id the shifting fortune ot that fnscinn-
ting domain known as tho money world.
The woman has become a factor to bo
reckonod with in thu Held of oonvorsa
tlvo Investment. Dospitc her so-called
emancipation in various directions, she
still ptOfow thu ties of thu purse.
This fointnlne ascendency in n Hold
hitherto regarded eta strictly innseuliuo-
did not develop overnight. It is tht*
result of a '.ouo and expensive iiovitintc.
Whon vou stop to consider thnt woman
te by toiaporumont nad instinct it horn
speculator, you soon roallxo bow and
...i... ■!.<*, Itna hnan for vours the pie-
ed   rare  judgn;	
Mrs, Hetty Orcou, for example, yields
to fow iii the Street in knowledge of
financial conditions aud astuteness of
purchase. Iu fact, she has a broader
grasp of money affairs thau most mon.
At one time she wns one of the largest owners of Louisville and NTnshvillo
slock. Of late years she hus only dealt
in nigh class bank and trust stocks and
'lovoted most of hur money und attention to bonds nnd mortgages. Herein
sho displayed sound Investment sense,
ller strong boxes today are packed
with securities, that are practically im
tho ravages of panic, and de
of  the  gullible  promoter  ami   the
'get rich quick"   artist.    Her
gulling     ,, ...
way   to   solid  investment   knowledge—
and, what is more important, the employment of  It—(8   .strewn    with   Hl"
wrecks   of  gilded  hopes   nnd
thing-*'" that wont wrong.
Woman is no stranger in Wall Street
—that is, in the purely speculative
run I in. Many *brokoi-s fervently wish
that thoy worn straugurs. The plain
aud un gallant. *n*ttno» is that sho is a
very bad loser. .She is willing to take
a ehauce when thu prospects for a big
profit dangle alluringly before hor, but
when the market breaks and things go
lu smash, she does not always understand tbe reason why.
Hence many big brokerage houses
discourage women's speculative ac-
counts, Whon n woman losos on a
speculative venture she takes it sadly
to heart. More than one broker who
had to carry a woman's account for
family or busness reasons has made
losses good rather thnn face a scene
with the customer.
Most people of our generation have
forgotten that Wall Street once had a
firm of women brokers. It was the
spectacular combination known as
Woodhull, Clafln & Co., and it was back
ed by "Commodore" Vanderbilt. It
lost a good deal more than it made, and
about the most permanent thing thnt it
achieved was a tradition of the Street.
Wouion speculators have a way of
giving orders to thoir brokers with
strings tied to them, and sometimes
those things get sadly tangled, as this
typical incident will show:
A woman who owned some bank
stock asked a broker to sell at 850.
The market on this stock had not been
active for a good while, und 250 was
the highest price yet recorded,-for the
security. One day,, however, a demand
fur the stock suddenly developed, and
before tbe market was half over il
touched at 250. The broker promptly
told the woman's stock. Before the
end of tho day it rose to :100.
The broker seut word to his customer that he had soW the stock ut 250.
according to instructions, and asked
tier to send hint -Win certificate. She
became very indignant and refused to
deliver tho stock.
"How could you net I it for USD when
it went to 3Q0t" she said.
In vain the broker pleaded that he
had simply followed instructions, and
[hat he could nol dream that it would
go to 300. The chances at the time he
sold it were that it would go hack to
its old figure of 220. He had to go to
court tu get tha stock..
Many women who have a vague no-
i of speculation believe that nil that
ipeossary to get rich in Wall Street
intiiie frum
press io u.
The late Mrs. Thomas W. Lawson
had u remurkubte knowledge of tho
stock -market, and her judgment, wns
almost uncanny. It is said that tho
celebrated sponsor of '' frenzied Hn
anoe" never undertook a groat stock
exploitation campaign without her advice and ofton her co operation. Many
people have noted that ho has not
launched any vast speculative "'liter
prises,since ber doath.
One of the shrewdest business women
ia tho  United States is Mrs,  Frederic
.', Penflold, who is the daughter of t£e
late William Weight man, the "Qui inn
King" of Philadelphia. She not only
inherited the control of a great business, but the charge of a ramified financial trust. While most of the money
was employed in1 "'ground rents," a
favorite Pimusylvania real-estate investment, there was n good deal in
stacks and bonds, ami her strong, sane
administration of .affairs, has greatly
enhanced the value of the estate. Liko
Mrs. Green, shu has shown a man's firm
and discriminating grasp of large
While the property of women like
Mrs. Russell Sago and Mrs. K. U. Hurri-
man is administered by trustees who
have ample financial knowledge, both
take no small part in tho employment
of their surplus incomes. Tho same is
true of Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt, Sr.,
Miss Helen Oould/Mrs, Marshall Field,
Mrs. Levi . Iieitcr,. and Mrs. Oottis P.
Vlut What of tho average woman uud
her moneyf She. has no large inheritance with which to bulwark her declining years; no shrewd oV far-seeing
trustee to guide and direct ber funds
into the pleasant' paths of profit. Yet
it Is this very woman-—more often the
widow and the wage-earner—who contributes to the great host of small and
conservative investors, which is the
backbone nnd substance of the whole
nation's financial strength.
The entry of the average womau into
the conservative field is one of the big
gost facte in present-day finance. The
facts ure impressive. There are more
than two million stockholders in the
various corporations of the United
States, and of this number more than
one-third, approximately eight hundred
thousand, are women. When you include the women who have savings and
ether accounts and who pay premiums
on life insurance, row. find that the
total number who huve money working
for them --and investment simply means
making your money work for you -is
over seven millions.
Thus, whilo the jest,nnd gibe are at
the expense of the woman who speculates )u Wall Street, the profit and
ompetency rest with those who refuse
Computuiu;,*.    nm.   ->..v..   «..-..      —
to bo dazzled by promise of impossible
profit nnd are .coot-tint with smaller .in-'
assured returns.  .
Formerly  it   was  considered   uiiusr.nl
r a railroad) o/,; iu fact, for nuy our-
to have a large number of
man) women preachers and doctors ure
included in this list.
Tho Standard Oil stock has many
women owners. The general impression
that this stock is closely held by the
Rockefellers and their original allies
is very much mistaken, John D. aud
his fellow patriots have more than six
thousand partners in their vast mono
So far I have ouly spoken of the
ownership of stocks by women. When
you turn to bonds yon find u much
bigger field. Most of the women who
own stock also have bonds. They go
on the vory wise theory that no one
who must invest for income should buy
stocks until they have a nest-egg of
solid, seasoned bonds.
No matter how gilt-edged a stock is,
there comes a time wheu it feels a
market depression. It may be vory
slight, but most women cannot understand these temporary fluctuation*.
They get nervous aud upset,' and unless
strongly ml vised, are apt to soil ont at
a loss at the first flurry. Itence bonds
should bo the cornerstone of all invest
ment by women.
When you como to examine the bond
holdings of cautious women investors,
yon discover that thoy have the securities of the time-tried railroads, whose
bonds are legal for savings-bank investments In states liko Now York, New
•lersoy, Connecticut and Massachusetts,
These states put thu most rigid safeguards ubout the employment of the
people's savings.
Many women own municipal bonds
which are also legal investments for
savings banks in these states. Lately
high-class public service bonds—those
underwritten by strong eouservntive
bankers—have crept into the holdings
of the women who want a larger Income than that afforded by first-mortgage railroad bonds.
In fact, whenever a big bond issue
of this kind comes out now, the bankers
make due allowance for the needs of
women, and their salesmen are instruct
ed to make a special plea for the woman buyer. Thus has she reached
man's estate,
In considering tho woman investor
you must not forget that she plays a
big part in the savings bank structure
of the country. Of the 0,142,000 savings-bank depositors iu the United
States more thnn fifty per cent, are
womon. This shows that they are
thriftier, in tonus of actual dollars nnd
cents, than mon.
In Now Vork, where thero are nearly
three million depositors in the savings-
banks, the percentage of women depositors is even greater, tn New Verk
city this is due to the fuct that among
the Germans and Italians, who comprise
a big bulk of the depositors', the accounts are in tho name of .the wife,

This is the keynote to all wealth. When

wait patiently until they are hit have,
indeed, been brought down; but, if hit,
they aro uot necessary placed hors do

oue case occurred of a balloon being
hit. A shrapnel shell, fired ut a range
of about 000 yards, burst in front of it

With regard to tho use of the aeroplane in warfare, the Field has some interesting remarks to make.
"In the opinion of the man in the
street the chief function of the aero
plane in flight would seem to be the
dropping of explosives ou the enemy below. Naval aud military mou, however, think differently; but until some
further developments tuke place aerial
chines nro not likely to he in a position to inflict serious damage. To escape tho enemy's fire the aeroplane
must necessarily fly at a height ut
which accuracy of aim is impossible.
"Tho recent spectacular performances at Henley, whore harmless
ornnges were dropped from low elova
tious well within artillery range, need
not bo seriously considered. An ox-
plosive should be able to work considerable destruction iu the immediate vicinity of the spot on which it foil, in
pentrnting the decks of ships and dam-'
aging gun turrets and conning towers,
while arsenals, dockyards, fortresses of
all kinds, and especially powder magazines are targets that would at once
attract the enemy.
"On the other hand, there is the fact
that ut present the light explosives
which aerial machines would be able
to drop would have very little pone-
trnting or destructive power; the machines would generally have to descend within rifle range if they wore
to be of any practical use; whilo the
difficulties iu the way of hitting anything from a moving platform in the
air, at nn unknown distance from the
target, mny be imagined."

Tlie remains of Israel's ancient capital arc to be found, for the most part,
on u huge isolated bill, 1)50 feet in
height, six miles northwest of Nablus,
otherwise known us Shechem, and
about twenty miles from tbe Mediterranean Sea. The mount is covered with
orchards of olives, figs and pomegrau
The first thut is known of this bill
in history is when it wns bought, about
900 B.C., by Omri, who built a town
called Shomoron, afterwards known as
Samaria. There Ahab, tlie son of Omri,
built a temple of Baal, and also an
ivory palace. In tho ivory palace he
ruled the northern kingdom down to
7U2 B.C,—us see the uccounts in the
Book of Kings in the Old Testament.
When Sargon captured Shomoron
(Samaria) he took away 27,000 people
into captivity. The population he left
in the city was put under the reign of
an Assyrian Uovernor, und the city
wns eoioni/.ed by Sargon and Ksnrhud-
don with Babylonians in place of the
exiled Israelites. Thu next conqueror
of Samaria wus Alexander the Great.
The place continued to be occupied
clear on dnwn to the timo of Herod.
He rebuilt uud "improved'' the city
and named it Sebaste. This wus .just
before the birth of Christ.
Herod hud a passion for buildiug
cities, und he liteniHy dotted the landscape of his time with temples and
palaces. He was notoriously cruel and
was poor pay. He made everybody
work for hi in for nothing.

Next morning tbe palace re-echoes

she is informed, has died suddenly during the night. The path to the throne
lies open to the offspring of the Ooun
toss von Hoehborg. morganatic wife of
tho reigning prince, Karl Priedrich.
The Grand Duchess is denied even
the poor consolation of seeing the body
of the babe supposed to be hers. She
is, tbe court physician insists, too ill.
Tho shock might prove fatal.
Neither is the wet nurse permitted to
look upon tho dead body, or even to
enter the death-chamber. The result is
that the dead infant is coffined by persons who had never seen it alive, and
then hurried away for burial to the
royal mausoleum.
'The people of Baden are not uuunt'
umlly surprised at the sudden.death of
their Crown Prince, as the first bulletins had announced that tho new-born
babe,wns perfectly healthy, nnd every
succeeding one declared him to be
thriving. Thore is much talk, and many
rumors. But the few who are in tho

speak. It ,was dangerous in those
days to try to pry into tho secret intrigues of the two royal households who
shared between them the great, grim

On October 17th, 1829, n masked man
entered tho house whore Kaspar was
residing, aud attempted to assassinate
him by stabbing with somo sharp in
strument. The attempt was unsuecess
ful, but the incident created a great
sensation, and Hausor was convoyed
to tbe house of one of the magistrates,
and constantly guarded by two soldiers.
Later on he was sent for greater safe
ty to Anspach.
At Anspach he foolishly permitted
himself to keep an apoiutment in a
park on the outskirts of the city with
an individual who purported to be the
bearer of a letter from an English lord.
According to Kaspar's account, the
man decoyed him to a secluded part of
the grounds on pretence of unfolding
to him the secret of his birth, and then
stabbed him suddenly in the left breast
with it long-bludod stiletto. The unhappy lad, though mortally wounded,
had yet strength enough left to reach
the house whore he lodged, aud there,
throe days lator, he died.
His murderer was never traced, not
withstanding that a reward of $5,000
was offered for bis arrest.

Hut, utter all. it isn't the garden that is ouqupyiog
milady's particular timo and attention in "the fall 0 the
yoar." Not if she is a praotloal homo-keeper, it isn't. It's
the inside of the house, nut tbe outside, demunds her earnest
consideration. The pretty wicker porch furniture must be
stored in the attic to make room for cosy enso inviting arm
chairs and couches "dono" in warm, soft tints that match
the flames in tbe grate (ires, blazing in the libraries and
living room hearths theso sharp fall evenings. Tbe hammock pillows are to be shaken from their dainty crash and
muslin and linen covers and put into velvet, tapestry, leather,
or some other of the dozen and one dresses that help to make
things look bright and "comfy'* inside, white autumn rains
are falling and the yellow, frosted leaves como drifting
down. Tbo cool, delicate hangings, with their ruffles and
trills, tbat made homo a delightfully attractive place while
the thermometer in the shady corner of the back porch
climbed and climbed till we got dizzy watching its upward
flight, and tied desperately to beach and river cottages—
these will be "dry-cleaned" or laundered and folded away
for another summer's day resurrection. Heavy winter rugs
must be shaken free of mothballs and camphor, the furnace
put in order, the pipes attended to, and storm windows put
ou. It's decidedly a busy, practical season, this "fall o'
the year," our women poota to the contrary notwithstanding.
Not much time to loaf round the garden with a "fall house
cleaning" to oversee.
With these emergencies in mind, when 1 heard tbat tbe
manager uf the "interior decoration department" of a
certain huge shop on Portage Avenue had returned from a
six weeks' visit to New York, 1 scuttled round to see bim
and get a few ndvauee tips. Managers of departments In
big shops don't specially like to give away their new ideas,
but stroke 'em just right and sometimes they'll "talk"—■
a little.
One of the "uew" things be told mc was an old one.
That is that tbe simple lines, dull, soft tones and quaint, old
fashioned furniture tbat marked the interiors of our grandfathers' homes are more thau ever the vogue. We have
gone back to first principles in basic matters of taete aud
good form in home furnishing, aud apparently we intend
staying there. For which let us be duly thankful. Thus
the newest thing in wallpapers is the "blended leather"
effect, that simulates quite perfectly in tone nud grain the
beautiful, mellowed tints of the time-worn interiors of a
hundred years ago. Your library or living room done in one
of tho "ooze leather" papers will form nn artistically sober
setting for capucious leather-covered couchos, straight massive chairs, and the long rows of books with their faint
leathery smell. Old-fusbionod "panel-effects," either in
paper, or, If your drowiug-room is an elaborate one, iu silk
against a plain moire background, will also be "the thing."
For the bedrooms, we have tbe dear, quaint patterns of
liuuging baskets tilled with ferns and violets, festoons of
morning glory vines, Louis XVI. designs of lattice work
and trellis showered with pink or red or yellow roses, to
say nothing of stripes of varying width and color, and heaps
of flowers of no botanical classification whatever. With
these has naturally come tbo revival of figured chintz and
cretonne coverings for chairs and couch, and hangings far
stand and dressing table. If you like to be a bit exclusive,
and still consider the exigencies of a slender purse, buy the
handblocked muslins which are shown in the shops just uow
at such reasonable prices. These muslins are printed by
hand instead of run off in carloads by high speed modern
machinery, so the designs are exclusive, the stock necessarily
• ■»'•
If you arc oue of those artist souls to whom harmony of
design, even down to the last minute detail, means quite as
much us docs the more obvious harmony of color to those
less sensitively attuned, you will appreciate a certain very
new idea m curtuius and hangings. As you probably know.
Velvet hns almost entirely displaced velour in the affections
of the up to date home keeper, this season. Hhe has ex
tended her predilection for velvet gowns to moke it include
that most artistically satisfying of all materials iu every
sort of drawing room and library drape and cover. French
velvet, au imported fabric, te a most exquisite materia)
used in this way. It is a very recent importation, coming
in a variety of beautiful shades, including golden brawn, old
blue, tbat. charming silvery shade of green known to milliners
as "reseda," as well as a good half dozen other colore. But
it is the original fashion iu which it may be decorated to
match the rest of the room that insures the permanent popu
larity of French velvet with milady who delights in making
her home furnishings a triumph of artistic achievement.
Suppose you huve a new rug, or better still, a handsome uid
one, whose pattern und coloring you wish reproduced iu
curtains or hangings. The portion of tbe rug design you
want to use is traced on Ibe velvet in exactly the same way
you used to "burn" leather for pillowa and so on when the
(•raze for "burut-»ork" raged sotnu time ago, Tho pattern
is then filled in with oils, iu precisely tbe colors of tne rug,
excepting that on tho ve.vet tiny are infinitely softened
and shaded. I saw one set of hangings tbat was geing into
a beautiful Croscentwood home. They were of golden brown,
and tbe border.*- were all in autumn tints of reddish gold,
bronze and rich brownish yellows. If you aro clover with
brush aud pencil you can buy the material at a nominal cost
and still have n library or drawing-room set that a real mil
I ion a ness will envy yuu. It' you must be very economical iu
deed, and aren't avcomplished along those particular lines,
get the inexpensive i-nttnu taffetas nnd dimities that
come in wide ribbon tike bands ready for cutting out and
sewing on plain materials in decorative border designs,
There ure a variety of colored flower borders, with tlieir
clustered leaves of green, that, turned "wrong side out.'
flfrir brilliant colors dull nnd blur into the mueh-te be de
sired "shadow effects" popular just uow.
The prettiest thing I saw among the new npholsteringH
was it material something like plain old-fashioned denim, but
with dainty cream aud white backgrounds, and the most exquisite pate blue and pink nnd delicate green flowers scattered over it in this same "shadow effect." At a littlo distance
it resembled nothing so much as a huge yard-wide bolt of
Persian ribbon. It is used almost exclusively for drawing-
rooms and reception rooms, an obliging young salesman in
formed me. I hadn't either of those, so I bought a yard
to cover n sofa pillow or so.    It's lovely.
All of which is apropos if yuu happen to be one of those
fortunates who have a borne. But suppose you haven't.
Suppose you are a stranger in Winnipeg, or in any of our
larger cities nowadays, for tbat mattor, and have two or
three, or may be half a dozen kiddies, and are trying to

But in looking over the "houses to rent" columns in the
daily papers, or "apartments to lot" lists in tho agents'
oflices, the "no children" warning appears with appalling
frequency. I know a little mother, newly arrived in Winni
peg, with four charming children, who has stored her modest
household goods, leaned out one ef tha chiltjrea to u relative,
sent another to the country, nnd has settled down with her
two youngest to what is apparently a fruitless "house-tO'
bouse can vara" for a home. From apartment and cottage,
alike she has been turned away, so soou as that dark secret
of a family of four has been revealed. It seems that some
thing is wrong with the scheme of things when you look from
the bright, healthy children, with their pretty faces and
silken curls, to the sign which reads "No cats, dogs, parrots
or children allowed "—uow doesn't it T
Have you noticed what a quantity of space is devoted
nowadays to reading matter designed especially to interest
children! There are almost as many children's periodicals
as the:o are publications devoted to' "woman's interests."
Even in the over-crowded columns of tbe daily press, the
" hildren's page" and tho "woman's department" hove
sense. If not, we may "skim" or ignore, and no particular
harm done.
But how about the children's writers! A child's seusi
five imagination is a very delicate, impressionable thing.
Well do j, myself, remember, for instance, the fearful joy
with which I devoured the legend of the "hobgoblins and
tho golden ball" by day, and shivered with the covers pulled
over my cowardly little head for half the uight iu a very
agony of horror at tbe recollection of the slicing of the
ugly giant's head off. After reading " Kobinsou Crusoe''
loathed all food for days as a result of a haunting recollection of the feast of the cannibals which old Defoe portrays
with such a lavish pen. No one took the trouble to find out
tne "why," 1 wus simply airily classified by my elders as
'a very nervous child."
A well-known woman's magazine, which has an enormous
'imitation in Winnipeg homes, and which also boars tbe
reputation of being the best-edited woman's paper in the
world, came out. in this month's current, number with a
"children's pnge" it would puzzle the grown-ups to decipher. A solid page of the most, intricate and fanciful
lettering purported tu relate the adventures of a certain
"bear," whose portly form, outlined in drawing over the
printed story, added to tho difficulties of its translation. It
is emphatically wrong to subject a child's eyesight,to the
strain involved in attempting to read such a quantity of all
gradually assumed the dignity of well-established institutions.
Doubtless, sandwiched among the wholesale reams of matter
indiscriminate, we women folk mny glean occasional helps
of practical benefit. The array of attthorativc treatise on
preserving complexions, morals, ginger root or a husband's
love, the comprehensive deductions as to tho best method of
wearing our bongs, religion or hats—are many times irradiated with the cheerful glow of downright belpful common
but unintelligible matter, to say nothing of the infinitely
greater wrong inflicted in allowing the growing intelligences
to be clogged with tbe trivialities of a silly tale. Parents
ore not very consistent, it has always seemed to we, anyway.
Many a mother who wouldn't dream of allowing her five*
year-old child to attend a vaudeville performance willingly
gives that same child the "funny papers" and "comic
supplements" with their alleged jokes and oft times rude

Tbe window spaces of the up-to-date milliner shops are
displaying all sorts of new fancies and charming conceits
in the way of new leather work. There aro pecketbooks and
handbags; and what attracts attention most, table pads of
soft morocco and suede in subdued shades, with leather over
sets upon rich embroidered satins, and iu some instances over
real peacock's feathers, sewed beneath tbe opeuwork designs,
tbe soft iridescent tresses peeping out beyond, in a most
original way. When you see another of these odd artistic
pads, you rub your eyes—for you begin to think that millinery is surely "breaking iu" to everything this year. It has
tho cornors of leather open-work, set over coarse gold bullion mesh.
There are handbags heavy with golden embroideries or
sewn with seed pearls and emeralds in quaint designs. One
of the larger shops offers a new material iu the way of tho
dainty 'kerchiefs which milady tucks away in these hand
bags. It is an Knglish fabric, soft, fine and sheer, that has
only recently been shown in this country, though the sales
man told mo the "Lissuc" 'kerchief, which is its technical
name, has been displayed for a year or more in tho London
shops. They are dainty, but- quite inexpensive, which last
is more or less an item worthy of honorable mention these
first cold days, when everybody is sneezing.
But while there are "newest" fashions in clothes, fabrics,
arnl all sorts of pretty things for your ladyship's adornment,
be sure nothing will ever be more in fashion than good food.
Apropos, a unique index file for recipes is the newest fashion
in rook books. The files are filled with recipes, each on a
separate enr'd, a regular business file. You take out only the
recipe you need at the time—so very convenient. Should
yon decide to inaugurate tbe new system, here is a trio of
tomato recipes for entry at this season when fresh tomatoes
are least expensive:
To one bushel of tomatoes broken, boiled, and strained,
add ono ounce of cloves, two ounces allspice, four ounces of
whole black pepper, four large onions, boil all together for
hour over slow fire. Add one aud one half pints of fine salt,
one and one half pints of good vinegar, one-fourth bottle of
pepper sauce with the peppers. Stir well. When cold, bottle
nnd seal.
Home day, many years hence, wheu letters are regularly
carried by aeropioue. there will probably be people alive who
will be able to say: "1 saw the first air-postman flying from
Louden te Windsor, with the first bag of letters entrusted by
tbe Boat Office to an airman, on September the ninth, 1011."
tTndoubtedly the aerial post experiment has touched the
popular imagination, aud for this reason. It carries the
mind into the future. It suggests the inevitable develop
ment of a mode uf travel which is still in the infancy stage.
There were, therefore, a great many spectators at Hendon on
Saturday ufternoon to see the start. There were people
looking nut fer the mail plane all the way. And at Windsor
there would have been a big crowd on the landing place if it
had net been in the private part of the royal grounds with
admission strictly limited to a few invited guests.
In the end, however, these guests gained very little by
being on tbe Fast Uiwn, for the oue aeroplane which arrived
did not land tnere at all, but in u meadow on tlm royal farm
lower down. It was not until after five o'clock tbat the
handful of watchers in a cold north wind sighted a Bleriot
machine bearing down upon the castle. Naturally they
were disappointed when it sailed over and dropped some dis
tnnce away. But Mr. Hnniel, who took Mr. OreswcU's place
as first postman, saw that it would be dangerous to come
down on so smaJ a green surrounded by trees, nnd wisely
chose a safer spot.
lie had Started at five minutes to five, and his official
time of arrival was 5.8. Ile had done the journey, 1!) miles,

postmaster, received his letter-bag, which contained several
communications for the King, and among other curiosities a
letter to Mr. Asquith from the Suaragottes. A postman
cycled off with it. and by half past five the delivery had be
Certain documents relating to the mail were signed and
exchanged, Photographs were taken, the machine was refreshed with petrol and oil, and just after si** o'clock .Mr.
Hnniel started back. It was unfortunate that the wind,
which at Hendon was blowing thirty miles nn hour, delayed
tho start and pro? en ted other aeroplanes from tanking the
journey. But an air post cannot be expected as yet to behave with the Httiuo clockwork regularity as an earth post.
At an any rate, it got itself started, and to those who scoff at
its shortcomings believers in the future of flying cufj say with
confidence. "A day will come."
Principal Foreign Crops Are Reported
To Washington
Washington, D.C., Sept. 15.- Conditions of the important foreign crops, aa
reported to the United States depart
ment of agriculture's bureau of statin
tics, were announced recently us follows:
In western Canada, the greatest portion of 9,500.000 acres of wheat had
been cut by early September. Harvesting operations have been conducted under generally favorable conditions. Com-
lnercial estimates range between 150,-
000,000 and 185,000,000 bushels.
(Quantitatively, the aggregate wheat
yield of tbe western uud north central
European countries, omitting Russia, is
known largely to exceed that of the preceding year, Kye shows some shortage
volume. Outs is heavily deficient,
and ouly a \ery moderate yield of corn
is expected,
In south central Kurope the small
cereals, though uot so abundant as last
year, have given better thau average
quantities. The corn crop promises well.
Iu Russia, the yield in both wheat
and rye probably will be much smaller
thut in either of the past two years.
No trustworthy estimate of tho exact
extent of the deficiency, however, can
be bud until the publication of the official figures. The wheat shortage is
attributed chiefly to a disastrous crop
failure in southeastern Russia aud west-
urn Siberia. Confirmation of the calain
ity is found in a report that tho Russian government has bought large quantities of rye and wheat for the relief uf
tbe unfortunate districts. Barley promises a good crop, and corn a bountiful
yield  is assured.
In Argentina recent general rains
throughout thu grain belt have
strengthened confidence in the outcome
of tbe future harvest. The areaB under
flax, seed and oats show record acreages.
Australian wheat acreage is said to
show a slight increase, with prospects
for a favorable crop,
In British India conditions have improved, but rain is still lacking in some
districts. An official report upon the
acreage planted to cotton in 1911-12 in
districts which usually have 75 per cent.
of the total, estimates the area at M,
300,000 acres against 12,215,000 acres in
the samo territory last year.
M. Paul Souday, writing in tbe Eclair,
takes a gloomy view of tbe future of
Venice and incidentally shakes an admonitory finger ut tbe Venetian author!
tics should his forecast be realized.
Venice, he says, is disappearing, and
by that same sin of ambition "by which
the angels fell." Not content to be
the museum of the world, sho has cost
a longing eye upon her old commercial
supremacy and has dreamed dreams of
its restoration. To this end she bus
tried to deepen the Grand Canal, and
the result has been a flow of water
around tbe ancient foundations of the
city and with lamentable consequences.
The fall of the Campanile, pays M
Souday, was due to no other cause, and
now thero nre ominous cracks in the
Doge's I'ntace, there haa been a subsidence in the base of St. Mark's, nnd fis
sures have appeared in the Bridge of
the Kinlto. M. Souday asks if Venice
is doomed to disappear and if the death
of her commerce is to be followed by
the death of her romance.
ft is to be feared that M. Souday
must be answered in the affirmative, although it would bo u pity to hasten
the inevitable by an attempt to revive
commercial glories that are glorious
only because they are blurred by the
mists of time. Venice will disappear
like all other human things. If the
Rialto could be drapped in cotton woo).
still it would not be immortal.
Thu world is full of ruins baunted by
ghosts who would look upon Venice
very much as wo look upon a new mining camp. They have disappeared, or
nearly so, and Venice must go the same
way sooner or later. But let it be
later. To hasten the process by commercialism would be a crime for which
only Dante could furnish the adequate
penalty. A modern ocean liner in the
Grand Canal wonld be an inspiring spec
tacle, but. 4or this the Doge's Paiiwo
would be too high a price.

Dear Sir:
**1 wish you to put my letter on record for thi. sake of suffering humanity.
I have suffered Its months with Mms-
.•tiiar Rheumatism in my back. I have
opest at least $20.00 on pills and liniments daring that time, but nothing
would ease me of the pain—in fact it
was a chronic pain. Kor those long
18 month** it stayed right with me,
sometime*? convulsive and cramp-like,
causing me to groau and cry aloud.
Every movement waa torture. I could
not turn in bed without yelling ont.
Now I will always blew*, the day when
I tiret started tu rub in, and to take
internally ' eierviliuc.' After using
four bottles, my pains have left me. 1
shall always take off my hat to 'Nerviliue' and Can honestly say it's the
poor man's beat friend, because it will
always drive away from you the Demon
" Vours truthfully,
"Thomas Goss,
"Paris, Ont."
Use Nerviliue. Sold in 8S*a aud 50c
bottles the world over.
A German hawker, Hans Bauermels-
ter, has just retired from business, having amassed a littlo fortune. Aecorii-
injj to a I'aris eouteniporar)', misfortUDC
was the foundation of his success.
The hawker's specialty was the sale
of portraits of the imperial family. His
mode of haranguing his audience was
something like this:
"Buy a portrait of William I., whose
motto was, 'I have no time to be wear-
ioil.' ''
"Who'll buy this of Frederic II.,
whose prayer was, 'Teach me to suffer
without complaining*?"
"Do not fail to complete your col
lection and buy thia portrait of our
great emperor, William IT., whose favorite phrase is, 'Augusta, you pack your
trunks.' "
This last always brought down the
audience, and in time the police, iu another sense. ilauermeister wns sent
cured to sixty days for lose majeste.
He did his time and on release ro
started his business.
Besides Hie new height record made
by Bi-at'liy at the Chicago meet. Wm.
Beatty set n new mark for endurance
with a passenger by remaining aloft
with Fred Wagner, a photographer of
the lAii-ago Tribune, no less than 3
hours, 42 minutes, 22 15 seconds. The
new record heats by 23 minutes that
made by Amerigo with an Aviatik
aeroplane in Germany some timo ago.
Beatty accomplished the feat with a
Wright biplane.

.James McNeil Whistler is said onoe
to have confronted Oscar Wilde—at the
neigbt of tho aesthetic movement-—with
Du Maurior, who was satirizing the
Postlothewaites in Punch with nil his
might, and to have genially inquired:
"Which of you two invented the
A farm band had worked in tho Held
from dawn till darknoKt-, doing the
ehoreu by lantern light.
"I'm going to quit," he said to tho
farmer at tho end of the month. "You
promJBed mo a steady job."
"Well, tiavcn't you got one?" was
the astonished reply.
"No,1' said tbe man, "there are
throe nr four hours every night T. don't
have anything to do and fool my tiroo
away sleeping."
Tlie difference, not merely of degree,
but of kind, which is supposed to separate the Knglish rector from the inferior order of eoratcs, is exemplified by
a recent incident. Returning to hits
parish after his autumn holiday, a dignified country elergyntan, noticing a
woman at her cottage door with a baby
in her arms, asked:
"Haa that baby been baptized?"
"Well, sir," replied tho courtesying
mother, "I shouldn't like to say as
much as that, but your young man came
and did what he could."
An error of a new clerk iu the mailing department of an Eastern publisher
waa responsible, the other day, for the
mailing of a prospectus to a world-famous statesman, who had been dead for
some years. The letter was returned a
few days later with the following indorsement:
"In heaven, , 1911.   Gentlemen:
As your publications are not permitted
to circulate here, I believe it would be
useless for me to subscribe for them.
Yours respectfully," and here followed
the name of tho famous statesman.
Several years ago, when the Me'.hod-
ist Church in Willoughby waa being
torn down to make place for the present beautiful edifice. Mayor Wilson
had occasion to hire a man for a fow
days. He sought Pat O'Brien—a well
known citizen—to do the job.
"1 can't do ut at all—at all!" declared Patrick.
"Oh, try it for a day or two, " urged
the mayor. "Oct off any way you c..u
to help me."
'Bogota, 1 can't do it. I'm havi"'
th' toirae of me loife. I'm tearin'
dowu a Protestant church, an" bain'
paid f'r it."
John .lacob Astor was asked ono day
what was the largest amount of money
lie hurl ever made in one transaction.
Thin ho declined to answer, but said
tnat ho would tell tho largest sum that
ho failed to make. With De Witt
Clinton and Gnuverneur Morris, he said,
he had planned to buy Louisiana from
Prance anil to sell it to the United
States government, retaining the publie
domain and charging li 1-2 per cont.
commission. They changed their
minds, and Mr. Astor said that he lost-
thirty millions ol* dollars by failing to
go into tho deal.
A Cincinnati man was travelling
through Now Kngland last month in his
louring car with his wife and two
daughters, They stopped one day for
lunch at a very nice hotel, and after
the meal was over the automobilist said
to the waiter:
"Bring the bill, please. We have
hud four sandwiches and four pieces of
apple pie. Wait ft moment, though.
What has the chauffeur had downstairs T"
"The chauffeur, sir," replied the
waiter, "has had » Parmesan omelette,
a grilled brook trout, lamb cutlets and
peua, an ice, a cup of black coffee, ft
fifteen-cent eigar, and a pint of champagne."

After a long, het, and dusty journey
by train the Now York commercial tra*
veller arrived at Richmond, brushed
enough dost off his fnee to make sure
that the right man was getting off, and
hailed one of the little seagoing hacks
common in the Old Dominion city. It

A true happening which has lately
been made the subject of a cartoon occurred at a fashionable golf club near
London. A young man, interested in
golf solely for the sake of the social
atmosphere, one day decided to play a
round. So he sauntered leisurely down
to the caddy house, where he met a
certain peppery lord. Not knowing the
gentleman and barely looking at him,
the somewhat, foppish youth asked:
"Aro you the caddy master here?"
Without an instant's hesitation, Lord
— replied, " No, 1 am not, but I happen to kuow that be is not in need of
any caddies this afternoon." It was
some time before either reentered.
The past few weeks have been unusual for tho amount of rain that has

It is high time that race track managers seriously considered the subject
of doing something to tracks which will
allow racing every day during a meeting.
We do not propose to offer any suggestions as to how this shall be accomplished. The suggestion made about
seven years ago, to use a canvas covering which could be automatically rolled above a track iu case of rain may be
discarded as impracticable. Tbe sug
gestion of a top layer of tanbark and
salt has its disadvantages.
Some experimenting has been done
with crude nil. The Htreator, 111., track
was so treated but horsemen, as we
remember the circumstances, were not
entirely satisfied. Thore are oiled

Several hundred new towns are to be
built in the West, we are told, this year
and next. They will all have to be named.
It is a comparatively easy thing to pick
out a townsite on the prairie, but whore
does the supply of brand new names
come from? Tho now map-making that
is continually going ou in Western Canada is not merely a question of where
tho towns shall be put but of what they
shall be callod.
This matter of place names in the
West'is an interesting bit .of study, and
reveals not only an amazing profundity
but a very considerable originality.
They are not the kind of names that
aro known in the 'East. Very seldom
does a western town duplicate the name
of an eastern town—which is more than
can be said of the East itself, where
there aro many repetitions. A glance
at the newest map of the prairie provinces will show an interesting variety
of names that are practically copyright.
They ure the kind of names that would
not fit woll in the East, simply because
they have grown out of western experiences and conditions. The earliest were
Indian, and many sweet-sounding Indian names are on the map; men the
cue was taken from the appearance of
Nature, particularly in the case oi rivers, bills, and valleys; aud latterly tbe
surnames of men arc being commemorated, men who have taken some part in
the establishment of the town, or, in
the case of many of the newest stations, the officials or engineers of tho
railway which is bringing the town into
But eveu greater in variety, interest,
and occasional oddity than the place-
names are tho names of the people.
Here, too, an effort is made to eommeiu-
orate some phase of western life, not
infrequently with strange results. Aa
Indian mother near Edmonton heard
of tbe large part being played in tho
West by the railways, ami straightway
named her youngest "C.P.R." Another, desirous of doing honor to the white
man's medicine, conferred upon her
first-born the surprising distinction of
"Mary Ann Hood's Snrsupnrillu."
Surnames cannot, however, be so
easily manufactured or adapted, and
this explains the infinite variety of
family nomenclature iu a country
where people conic from everywhere
and bring their foreign made names
with them. The census enumerators
could give abundant witness to this, if
thoy would.
On the list of members of a Scandinavian hospital board incorporated not
long ago by the Alberta (Government
were the following: Ole Diedrickson,
Knot CuIHckson, Nils Schmidt, Evan
Olstud, and as many others of the same
order. These nre tame, almost commonplace, however, und may be taken merely by way of introduction. In the
same province and of tho same tongue
are such names as Bierinekx, Shellcn-
berger, Weidonhemmer, Muekcnhirin;
and Opprtahauser, Bchlottinhofer, Stroh-
maycr, and Otheisnr are of German lineage.

One of Hie notorious personages who
figured in Manitoba police circles a
year or two ago was a Kuthenian, by
name Wusyl Andrejozuk. The first of
these names is a common one among the
GnJieinns. Ooachiem Thosiclniak is
pretty nearly a prizewinner which only
well-running tongues should attempt. It
is another Kuthenian name, found this
time in Alberta. Of the same order
aro those: Corolla Dyspak, Stein Pus*
exuk, John (lottenfusser and Alva Siegfried.
The government reports from all over
the West aro humanly interesting on
the senro of names, if In no other way.
Thoy reveal such names as these, belonging to Canada'« citizen farmers
and representing various blends from
the ends of the earth: .Ian Kaminski,

tare. Jwan Makow-pcki, Andrew Holo-
wacx. Mojscy Hwanshuk, Nekefir Gow-
relink, Powio Mojchuk, and Jnnosiz An*
Now the thing of importance about
all those names is not that thoy are
funny, or that they reproduce Russia
and Dutch town on Canadian soil, but
that thoy are going on our electoral
lists, ami the men who possess thom-
will be counted among the bona fide
citizens of Canada, As time goes on
and the more adaptative of them have
become fairly well assimilated, wo shall
havo to live on neighborly terms with
them, and it. thereforo behooves us to
get  used to their names now.

The Right of the Child to be
(By  Dt. Woods Hutchinson)
Your child didn't ask to be bom
into your illustrious family. He had
no choice iu the selection of bis parents.
It te for you to make him glad or sorry
that he came. Providing that you have
not poured poisons into your blood, or
been blind enough to chooso, an your
other self, one whose blood is tainted
with disease, or mental or moral unbalance, you have endowed him with a
high and illustrious heritage, a pedigree
teaching back to the vory dawn of life,
a lineage beside whoso aueientnosa and
distinction the archives of Burke's
Peerage, or the Almanack do Gothu nre
but as mushrooms and may-flies.
The religion of-the future will teach
first, to every young man and young
woman, reverence for the purity of tho
Race Stream, devotion to its safeguarding und enrichment. What you
are is 01 far greater importance to your
child than what you do, short of actually neglecting him.
Fortunately ninety-five children out
of every hundred are well bnrn and
receive their inheritance from the ages
practically unimpaired. Our problem
is how to secure to them full and free
exercise of all the rights inherent therein, and the privileges that appertain
thereto. However devoted you may be
to your life's work, or proud of .your
success in it, remember that your child
will probably bo your chef d'oouvro—
your most important and lasting nccom
plisbment. Through him you may in
il nonce generations yet unborn.
Vou are not responsible for one of
the parents of your child, but you are
tor the other. Vou cannot decide to
be or uot to be for yourself, but you
can for your child. Fortunately, nine
times out of ton you may almost shut
your eyes and take your chance, with
confidence and safety—unless you close
them to keep from seeing glaring and
obvious defects. Choose the best that
you possibly can, and nine times out of
ten you will do far better than you
expect—and quite as well as you deserve—if you only avoid the obviously i
had and unfit.
Two great forces are at work in your
child—Growth and Imitation. One is
as inevitable and almost as little modified by anything that you can do as tho
development of the wheat in the ear
in summer from tho tiny groen blade
in spring. All that is needed is plenty
of moisture, food, and sunshine. The
second, in its working, depends almost
entirely upon you. Well born your child
probably iB; whether he be. well bred or
not, will depend upon what he sees
about him while he is growing up. It
makes no difference what you teach
him, or write down for him as mottoes
in his copybook, ur cause him to commit to memory as rules of conduct.
These, by the mercy of Heaven, go in
ut one ear and out at the other, or roll
off, like the proverbial water from the
duck's back. But. the life you live
before him—that will be reflected in
his life, as in a mirror.
Just be born healthy and happy,
tho heir to ten million years—that is
distinction and fortune enough. We
ure all millionaires in years. The differences between one child and another
nre but of three or four generations
making; the similarities have taken a
thousand eons to build. The differences
iu possibilities ure ouly u fow chances
in the hundred, under favorable surroundings. And these favoring condi
tions are so simple, so modest—home
made and home-grown—bread, milk,
fruits, and sweets plainly prepared, but
scrupulously pure, surgically clean,
abundant, and of the best quality; the
fresh uir of heaven upon his face day
and night, tbe better half of his time
for sleep nnd growth, sunshine—and
love. The man, or woman, who cannot
guarantee this much endowment should
never undertake to become a parent,
(liven theso things, whatever possibili
ties may be folded within him. like
crumpled roseleoves in the bud, will
develop sorely and safely, If he be
ono of the fortunate few who have
drawn the lot. of power to soar like the
eagle, he will soar like the oagle with
his own wings. All you have to do is
t» feed him and give his pin-feathers
mom to sprout.
If he be of the happier great ma
iority, born to the golden mean of fortune and success, thut level he will also
reach easily, wholesomely, happily; and
no hot house forcing on your part will
lift him more than a fraction of an
inch above it. I

and most lasting achievement. Treat i
him with respect, and consideration accordingly. Give him n fair nnd full
chance to show what is in him, set him
a good example and bis ancestry will
do the rest.
A baby is like a cocoon, he is all
wrapped, up in himself. If you ever
try tii unroll it vory new one, you will
find that he is all wrapped up in other
things also almost us elaborately as a
silk-worm, In fact, us you tako off
layer after layer, you begin to wonder
when you ure going to come down to the
baby. He is like the cocoon in his
tremendous power of growth, in tho inevitable certainty with which he will
develop—barring starvation or death—
to a fullgrnwu adult specimen of the
species in which he happens to be born
in his somnolence, in the peacefulnesH
aud placidity of his habits. And besides, he looks like one—more than he
does like either of his pDrents at least.
The only differences between him and
the chrysalis nre, that lie doesn't curry
a storo of nourishment sealed up inside
of him, and that his skin grows ns fast
a* he does, so that he doesn't hove to
split up the back and crawl out- of it
every two weeks. But he comes into
the world loaded, loaded with possibilities, even if he doesn't have to explode
in order to "arrive."
He is Btrietly up-to-date, too, for ho
has an affinity—a chemical affinity for
fond. All you have to do is to put
it within scenting distance of him, and
he will be drawn toward it and "freeze
mi to" it ns a steel filing to a magnet.
Re hasn't an appetite—he is one.    But
his affinity is a selective one. All's
fish that comes to his net, und everything thut his tiny hands can clutch,
goes Into his mouth for one good suck;
but it doesn't get uny further unless it
sets up the right "reaction," or, as
he would express it if ho could talk,
"tastes good." His mouth is his
"acid tost" und a pretty reliable one
it is. There are few things that can
pass it that are not real foods, genuine
fuel—and the best anthracite at that.
It has another advantuge too that,
liko other chemical affinities, as soon
us it is satisfied it stops. It is an automatic, self-regulator, as good as a floating ball valve; tho moment his tiny
"tank" is full, the inflow is cut off,
but as soon as it is empty it opens
It is really hard to overload a baby,
unless you have your nutritive fluid
too thin, or too thick. In the former
case, he will stop boforo he has got
enough coal under his boiler; in the lat
ter, he will overcoat himself before he
gets thut comfortable sensation of gen
eral distention in his little interior,
which serves him for a guide. The
little at-atime-nnd-often principle of
feeding, a fixed and stingy number of
ounces at equal intervals, can easily
bo overdone. A baby's stomach has
to be stretched occasionally in order
to make it grow properly. Ho is a
wound-up "foodometor" with
alarm-clock attochmemt, and can bo
relied upon to strike his own meal
hours. When ho does, fill him up with
the right stuff aud let him go until ho
strikes again. Let him huve plenty of
water, though, after the first ten days,
or he will often take milk which he does
not want just for the sake of its "wet
ness." In nursery Ksperanto, the
same word means both wator and milk
whenever it is uttered within two hours
after a meal, water should be offered
first. If he doesn't want it, ho will
tell you so ut onco us indignantly und
emphatically as a Kentucky colonel
would. Vou ought to be ashamed of
yourself trying to drown him, or give
him tbo dropsy.
Whore is he to get this supply of tbe
real thing, Although, unfortunately,
he doesn't come into the world loaded
like the real chrysalis or the chick in
the egg, with enough nourishment to
curry him through to the run-about
stage, nature has provided a supply in
hiH immediate vicinity. Mr. A. Ward,
in the advertisementss of his famous
lecture, used to announce that children
under one year of uge would not be
permitted unless accompanied by parents, or guardians; and fortunately
such an attendant is usually found in
close proximity to the human chrysalis
in a state of nature.
Twenty years ngo, there war* loud
outcry and much wagging of heads ovei
the fact that this source of supply was
failing, us a result of modern decadence,
So often and so positively was -C announced as a fact, that even mothers
began to believe it und act accordingly.
Uut one day, in one of the most de
eudent of modern countries, whore the
birth-rate had fallen below the death-
rate and babies in consequence wore

looking into the matter that the death*
rate waa nearly ten times greater in
bottle-fed children. Whereupon an iu

Thu true professional spirit is essentially modest, und among the highest
type of professional mou the good of
the cause ranks higher than the gain
of the individual. Pride of place and
a laudable ambition to excel go side
by side with a sottled dislike of lime
light exploitation and any form of
newspaper notoriety. Tbe ethical distinction between tho trades and profes
sions, which was so strongly accentuated in earlier days, and survives in certain parts of the world even today, was
based originally upon the fact that the
professional man was supposed to take
up his life's work primarily because he
loved both his profession nnd tbe people whom it might benefit. The personal gain which it brought was a secondary consideration. In this respect
he was distinguished front the man nf
commerce, who bought and sold first
and last for pecuniary gain. This
ethical distinction or dividing line between the trades and professions hus
largely disappeared; and we are sufficiently optimistic to believe that it has
ben due to a filtration of the professional spirit into the commercial world.
A case in point occurred on the
steamship '' Carmunia'' whon she recently put into Halifax for coal, und
took advantage of tho opportunity to
make some minor repairs to her low-
pressure turbine. A small leakage
pipe, leading from the turbine to the
condenser, had developed signs of weakness, and it became necessary to dose
certain gates which were inaccessible
from the exterior of the engine. Ordinarily the turbines would have been
allowed to cool down for repairs of
this character, but in order to save from
six to eight hours' time, which would
be necessary for cooling off, the engineers decided to take off the manholes
and send one of their numbor in to close
the gates. This was done, and although the internal temperature was
about 175 degrees, the task was successfully accomplished.
Upon tho arrival of the ship in New
Vork the event was seized upon by thu.
daily press reporter, and n repair job
which was designated by the engineers
themselves a mere matter of routine
duty, was magnified into a story of stupendous heroism and magnificent devotion to duty which,'although it mny
have provided an interesting quarter
of uu hour for the average citizen over
his morning cup of coffee, served only
to provoke mingled consternation and
ridicule among the engine room's staff
of the ship itself. Although a temperature of 17.1 degrees is scarcely that
in which tho average individual would
choose to take even moderate exercise,
it is a fact tbat in some engiue rooms,
especially in the tropics, temperatures
have been known to run up not so very
far from that given. On certain warships, when the hatches are battened
lowu lor buttle practice, eugine-room
temperatures huve been known to run
up as high' as 165 degrees.

Nobody seems to explain, in tbe comment nn the launching of the Rivadavia
at Qulney, Mass,, what use Argentina
expects to have for the biggest battleship in tbe world. In fact, the recent
activity of such South American conn
tries as Argentina, Brazil, and Chile,
in building and equipping huge war-
ships, is a phenomenon which must
stimulate surmise in more directions
thnn oue. It is not lung since Brazil's
navy mutinied and nenrlv caused a revolution. Is the flocking of these
bristling sea monsters in southern
waters a safeguard or a menace to peace
among the South American states?
When the Hivnduwa was launched, on
August. 26*, from the Pore River Ship

Argentina's monster super-dread-
nought also inevitably arouses the old
question. Where is this building *.f
bigger nnd bigger warships going to
lend? The Rivadavia is 585 feet long,
while the Arkansas and Wyoming, the
ships of the American navy which most
nearly Approach her in size nnd type,
are 211 feet shorter. Like the Arkansas ami Wyoming, she is to have n
main buttery of twelve 12-inch guns,
but these are to have n radius of fire
of 120 degrees as against 00 degrees
in the Amerlcnn vessels, Newspaper
reports of her displacement differ considerably, but the authoritative Army
nnd Navy journal places it at 27,500
tons, as against the Arkansas' 26,000.

Tn spito of recent intimations of u
reaction toward smaller battleships in
the Uritish navy, remarks the New
^ ark Tribune, "there is no evidence
that any other important Power hus
bo much us seriously considered such a
policy." On the contrary, "the ten
ieuey toward still larger 'vessel.* oon
tiuue-; unabated." More and larger
guns necessitate larger ships. As The
Tribune puts it:
Fnrragut's principle, than which
there is none sounder, was that the
strength of a ship lay not in its armor
but in its arms, and that the ship waa
strongest which had the most powerful
guns. Our ordnance experts are uow,
us they believe, penecting 10 inch guns.
The Dreudnought and the Utah curry
12-iuch guns. Obviously a ship with
16-inch guns would be far superior to
one witu 12-inch guns. If, therefore,
Hi-inch guns are found to be practicable, tbo rule of efficiency will require
that we have ships capable of carrying
thom. That is to say, the primary and
fundamental problem is to provide the
most powerful guns. Then comes the
secondary problem of providing ships to
carry those guns. The ship is made
for the guns, not the guns fur the
ship.   .    ,   .
"We may grant a ship should be as
small and as swift as possible, so long
it is stable and strong enough to
carry the guns. But smallness is not
the desideratum nor the criterion, but
rather ability to carry the guns. That
is the essential thing. Our ships
must be as large and as heavy as may
be necessary for that."
A dispatch from Qulney to the New
Vork Times makes the following interesting comparisons between the Riva
dayia and the latest dreadnoughts uf
the principal   Powers:
The United States has four battleships of the dreadnought type that are
noarly as big ns the Rivadavia and two
of which will be more powerful so far
as their main batteries are concerned
than tho Rivadavia will be. The Arkansas and Wyoming are 860 tons small
er in size, but carry identical main
batteries, while the New York and
Texas, the building of which ships is
now under way, are 500 tons smaller
than .the Argentine dreadnought. The
New Vork and Texas will mount ten 14
inch guus, however, making their main
batteries tho greatest i ever placed on
board a battleship in this or nny other
"Great Britain's nearest approach in
battleships are those of the King
George IV.. type, which will displace,
when completed, 25,000 tons, and which
will mount ten 13.55-inch guns, next to
the 14-inch guns that ure to be mounted
on the United States ships New Vork
and Texas the most powerful naval guns
in the world. Great Britain, however,
has building a cruiser, the Queen Mary,
that will be bigger in displacement by
1,350 tons that the Rivadavia.
"Germany's type of dreadnought battleships that can be compared to the
Rivadavia are the seven of the Kaiser
class, now in process of construction.
These ships will displace 23,000 tous,
aud will mount ton 12.2-inch guus tn
their main butteries.
"Japan is understood to have in con
templution tho construction of a dreadnought of the same tonnage us the Rivadavia, Her dreadnoughts now building, two of the Kawachi class, are 7,000
tuns smaller than the Rivadavia, but
will mount main batteries of 12-inch
guns equal in number to those on the
Argentine ship. France has four
dreadnoughts of the Courbet type projected, which, when completed, will
displace 23,467 tons, and carry maiu
batteries of twelve 12-inch guns. Italy's
biggest type is represented by the Cone
di ('avour of 22,700 tons, launched two
weeks ago; Austria is building two of
20,000 tons, and Russia four of the Poltava type, which will also mouut a
lozen 12-inch guns, and when completed
will displace 23,300 tons."

Dr. I'M ward Gudeman, who road a paper
ou the subject before a recent convention of flavoring-extract manufacturers.
After noting that in the tomb of King
Amonophla IL, of Kgypt, jars of apparently fresh honey hud been found, ho
goes on to say, according to au ab
struct printed In The American Grocer:
"Professor George A. Retailor of
Harvard University discovered in the
excavations made in Palestine, the first
and earliest specimens of Hebrew writ
ting, dating back to ttfiO B.C. These
writings were on tablets, labels on wine
and oil jars. The small bits of pottery on which the descriptions were
written were a different kind of pottery
than the jars, and evidently were intended to be attached to the necks of
the jars, just as wo do today wit..
seals and tugs. These labels mention
the year in which the wine was laid
down in the cellars of thi; palace store
house, and give thu name of the vineyard from which the wine came. This
is a custom of today. Tho labels on
the oil jars stated *A jar of puro oil,*
mentioning the district from which tae
oil came. No different from the ens
torn of today. This simply shows tnat
pure food labels and bonded warehouses
were known nbout. 2,700 yoars before
even Br. Wiley discovered thom. Some
250 years ago the Italian poot, physician
und chemist, Francesco Redi, of Florence, made some quantitative food examinations. Not having a balance
weighing to within 1-100,000 of an
ounce, us we have today, be overcame
the errors of inaccurate weighing by
using 100 pounds of substunce for each
determination. In this way he found
pepper to contain 55.1 per cent, of ash
and ginger to contain 5.2 paV. cent, ash.
He went u step further and leached
out these ashes and determined the
amounts of soluble und insoluble ashes.
We do the same thing today aud our
results arc not any moro accurate than
those of Redi, whose figures of 250
years ago showed pepper and ginger
to meet today's requirements.
"About the same time Robert Boyle
determined the ash in somo 550 different vegetables, also determining the
specific gravity of the soluble substances, the extracts, und usod his determinations of .judging tho purity of
the products, their freedom from adulteration. In 1740 Francis Bacon published his tables of specific gravities,!
and in 1784 Vtinden Haude published'!
his results on the 'sophistication of
"The invention of the microscope
about the eighteenth century enabled
Antony von Leeuwonhoek to discover
euffein and thutn, the active principles
of coffee and tea. and in au actual extract of pepper he also discovered its
active principle, piperin. Leeuwen-
hock can be designated as the first real
food chemist.   *   .    *
"Archimedes was perhaps our first
commercial chemist * He assayed
metals and used for his method the
change in specific, gravity of alloys as
compared with the specific gravity of
the pure metals. Ho wns really up
with modern times,' using vohimotrie
methods, measuring the water displaced
by the metal as compared with the
water displaced by same weight of its
alloy. Pliny tells us of the. frauds
practised by tbe bakers of Naples, who
mixed a white earth with the. flour and
he also tells us'that even the rich-of
Rome went unable to obtain the natural,
unadulterated wines of Fuloruo. The
city of Athens had its special wine inspector.   .    .   ,
"The guilds in Kngland took notice
of food adulteration and among the
many special ordinances were soqje enforced by the Pe.pperers Guild on condiments and spices. Spices, condiment*
and aromatic substances coming from
the Indium and Arabia were of high
value nnd this no doubt oeoennts why
so many ordinances and regulations
rofer to them."   *
In France, the writer goes on to say,
a statute of 1202 forbids the adulters
tion of beer. Sampling from the ori
ginal package wus recognized us early
:is 1371 when a decree of the Provost
of Paris compels tavern-keepers ta pe.
mit a purchaser of wine to see it drawn
from tbe original cask. An ordinandi
of 1330 forbids the mixing of wines
and the giving of a false name or false
age to wine, which is precisely our requirement today. We read further:
"In Nuremberg everything was otli

'making the punishment fit tho crime
may bo questioned, but it certainly attained thu desired object of preventing
a second offense by the parties involved. In Augsburg offending bakers,
short weight or impure flour, were put
into a casket, hung on a lung pole and
ducked in a muddy pool. No special
attempt was made to have the mud es
pecially soft, and the final result wns
generally fatal; i\\ least no record shows
that any baker was punished a second

Japan is suffering from ovor-populu
tion, aud has thus fur found no remedy
When emigration to North America
aroused hostility, the Japanese Govern
ment turned to .South America, only to
find wages so low there that the .Japan
ese eiuigrnots nearly starved. Por
on.ee Asiatic labor found itself underbid in the labor market, and Mr. Saito,
director of the Kmigratiott Bureau of
the Foreign Department, declares in the
Toyko Keizni Zasshi (Tokyo Economic
Journal) that Japan has virtually abun
donod the South American experiment,
and ie at a loss for any other outlet,
The discouraging conditions prevailing
there he describes thus:
"lu Latin America there is no strong
racial antipathy toward the Japanese,
such as is prevalent in North America.
Ah a rule, South Americans are friendly
toward our immigrants, aud iu some
cases even the governments are inclined
to favor Japanese immigration. But
all these attractive features are sot at
naught by the disadvantages and hard
ships which our im migrants have to
combat. In the first place. South
American climate has proved uncongenial to them. As a rule, our working-
men have remarkable adaptability to
all sorts of climate, but in South America the health of our immigrants was
greatly affected. Even more disadvantageous than this is the fact tbat in
South America wages of laborers arc so
low that our immigrants find it impossible to improve their lot in life, which
was their sole aim in goiug to that dis
tunt land. Not ouly were they unable
to save anything out of their earnings,
but they became, so destitute thut they
bad to ask their home government fur
succor whon obliged to return home to
their native country ou account of illness or some other unexpected incident. ''
lu view of these unfavorable circumstances, the Japanese Government felt
constrained to step in and advise the
emigration companies not tu send any
more emigrants to South America.
Meanwhile, the Japanese population is
increasing as rapidly as ever. Where
is Japan to send her surplus population!
"It is regrettable," says Mr. Suite,
"that we cau uot find u country where
our immigrants wil) he welcomed and
whero labor conditions are such as
would materially assist them in improv
ing their lot."     But:
To maintain her prestige and her
friendly relations with foreign nations,
Japan is forced to refrain from sending
emigrants tothose countries whore pop
uliir sentiment is against, them. More
over, it does not bespeak the wholesome
state uf a country tbat it «*.un not find
enough employment at borne for all its
population. If we had thriving industries at home, there would bo uo need
to send emigrants abroad; on the con
trury, wo would have to close our doors
and keep all our workingmen at home.
Tho only satisfactory solution of the
much-mooted emigration question lies, it
seems to me, in the development of our
industries to such an extent that our
laboring class will uo lunger be com-
pelled to Beck employment in foroign
lands. Hence it behooves ns to bend
all our energies fo the cultivation of
tho arts of jfreaee, to the exploitation of
our own country, which, though limited
in area, still cjutains considerable ful
low lands that ought to bo reclaimed,
and, above all, to tbe improvement, of
our industrial methods and system, To
accomplish all this, due time must be
allowed. A world of thriving industries cau uot lie created all uf a sudden, like Aladdin's palace. Por some
yeurs to come, therefore, we shall be
obliged to send our immigrants to Korea
and Manchuria."
