Fought for Centuries Against Both Turk and Christian to Gain Her Independence. Scutari, Albania. With the withdrawal of Italian troops from Avlona and the cessation of hostile invasions by the Serbs and Montenegrins, Albania is free of foreign occupation for the first time in her turbulent history. Albanians feel that they have at last reached the goal of their national independence. Their undying love of liberty, which has persisted through all their centuries of struggle against Turk and Christian, Is particularly quick and hopeful today. The people hope that the great powers will protect them from future designs on the part of selfish foreign countries. Perhaps never before was there such a state of tranquillity within the borders of the little Albanian state. In the streets of Scutari one sees the Albanian colors displayed for the first time, and listens to patriotic demonstrations by local groups of citizens and societies. Enthusiasm and patriotic fervor are at a high pitch. Even the native tribes, who usually are engaged In factional combat among themselves, are living in a state of peace. This peace is based upon nothing more than a word of honor given with the approval of the people between two ,.. or more chiefs. The Albanian's word, which he calls "bessa," Is absolutely binding. It is customary for families within a tribe, ,rnno for trlhP nnrt fnr l.r tribes, to arrant hfifu-PnthmRivM METERED MAIL NEXT NOVELTY New Electric Device Will Permit of New York, Chicago and Other Places.

New York, The large cities of Europe In the point of cleanliness and tidiness of streets are far ahead of New York, Chicago, Cincinnati and many cities In America, says Clyde A. r Copsen, manager of the bureau of the Merchants' association, who has just returned from a trip of observation in Europe. "In some sections of New York," he said, "I can see more street litter In one square block than in any one city I Visited abroad.

The corn laws were a series of enactments dating back to the reign of Edward HI, by which England sought to encourage the home production of grain. The levy of a tax on imports, the prohibition of imports, and export duties were among the means of the end. As a rule the taxes varied with n grain. If the the price of price varied from a stated level the tax was increased or decreased automatically. As England grew in importance in manufacturing, and the effect of the laws was to burden the people, agitation for the repeal of the corn laws became more and more Insistent, until 1S4G, when Sir Robert Peel succeeded In having them repealed. Shortly aftenvard England adopted a policy of practical free trade, realizing that as an exporting nation her trade would be under more favorable conditions. home-grow- SHOES! SHOES!!

The British government has, after careful consideration, decided to formally relinquish this right. A German citizen may, now that the war is over, deposit money in the Bank of England, and the British government falls behind in its reparation payments. This decision was reached because of the fact, sufficiently obvious we should think, that German citizens could not afford to trade in England so long as the right now waived existed A Paris dispatch states, however, that the French are "bewilder ed" and "alarmed" by the change in policy. But they should not be. The wise course for the French is to do exactly as the English have done. " d Every year many farmers store vegetables in the ground. A new method of handling this is to take an ordinary barrel, lay it down-- , on its sides, leave one end open. This barrel, can be covered with alternating layers of straw and dirt so as ' to prevent the vegetables from freezing. The barrel can be filled with vegetables and all the dirt and straw will be kept away from them throughout the season. Another point in favor of this barrel system is that several different kinds of vegetables can be placed in the same barrel. After (he barrel has been filled the head, which should be in one piece, is properly fastened and the barrel covered with dirt. When it becomes necessary to open this pit, remove the dirt from the head and take out what vegetables needed. Place the head back in position and put the dirt back in place. The vegetables will keep well in this manner and they will be free from dirt and also it is not necessary to destroy the entire pit in order to remove part of the vegetables.

A mile northwest of the station is an estate that is of peculiar historic Interest, for here one day a young surveyor who was on his way to Williamsburg and to fame in American history rested a while, dined, and met a young widow who was endowed with beauty, wit, and wealth, and who, through that meeting, was destined to become "the first lady of the land." The romance of George Washington and Martha Custls began there, and he finally led her up the hllL to old St. Peter's church, about three miles to the south, which overlooks the Pamunkey valley, a church that was old when he was born.

"May she live till she looks It!" "Get me a copy of It." said the But such a thing didn't exist remarked his lordship in an aside. Three weeks later Queen Alexandra demanded of him "Where's that newspaper?" For a moment Lord Fisher was staggered, then recovering himself, told his second lie: "Sold out. ma'am ; couldn't get a copy !" It was a year after this, says Lord Fisher, that Queen Alexandra sent him a post card, which he treasured.

Letter Writing. "One thing that I never could understand," said a playgoer, "Is the manner of writing and addressing letters on the stage.

"I suppose, of course, the purpose of this manner of letter writing Is to give the air of action, dispatch; to avoid any sense of lagging In the movement of the play; but would It not be more realistic and striking If it were.done with a sufficient measure of precision to make us feel that the letter and the address could actually be read?"

INSURANCE The craftsman of a former generation was keenly interested in quality and quantity of work He bragged about the fine shoes he made, of the fine potatoes he grew, and much of bis reward came from the satisfaction he got from high class work. The complaint is often heard now, that multitudes of people are not interested in the quality or amount of work done. They do not feel pride in its excellence. Their aim is to get by, to satisfy the requirements enough to hang on to their job. The pay envelope is the only re ward that counts. People who work for such ends may obtain plenty of employ ment in rush times when work is abundant. But slack times always come, and the first work-er- s to be laid off are always the clock watchers who never take interest in their work. Many experiments have " conducted of the proper ration?to feed poultry in order to secure the most eggs. The Poultry Department of the Experiment Station has just completed' the third year of experimental' work in the feeding of cotton seed meal in the laying ration for hens. They have reached' the conclusion that cottons eel meal is not essential to the ration. The average farm hens? will get sufficient grain to make tht yolk of the egg; but it ib necessary that sufficient feeds like takage, buttermilk or commercial meat scraps be provided in order that tney have sufficient animal protein to produce the white of the egg. It is essential that the ration be so balanced that the hens will have sufficient food of the various kinds in order for them to lay thes maximum number of eggs. - L. H.
