Several of the children living on the Cuchanan farm and Tanner farm could noe be present, and to these Mr. Robert Green, delivered their presents in person on Friday. After spending an hour and a half listening to music and receiving preMisses Wilkerson and Funstall, vis- sents, each child returned home laden-e- d with gifts and their little faces ited Mr. and Mrs. Cicero Fentress beaming with pleasure and pleasant during the holidays.

It is assumed that the Rockefeller gift will be probated according to the importance size and necessities of the various institutions It is not expected that the gift will have the effect of causing colleges to abandon or even slacken their individual campaigns for salary fund endowments. That has never been Mr. Rockefeller's style of giving.

Rockefeller. "I believe it is a religious duty to get all the money you can, fairly and honestly; to keep all you can, and to give away all you can." John D Rockefeller told the young men's Bible class of the Fifth Avenue Baptist Church years ago, and it was indicated yesterday that he maintains the conviction. In the fifties his largest benefacor amounted to cent a week to a Sunday-schoo- l. Since 1915 he has given $162,000,000 away and this vast sum added to the $50,000,000 he had distributed previously makes the known total of his gifts $412,000,000. Nor does this quite cover the flood of gold that has poured steadily from the coffers of the monarch of oil, as The Sun learned yesterday; for millions contributed to this cause or other, to the welfare of the Baptist church among them, do not figure in the staggering sum of his gifts to the three great Rockefeller institutions the Rockefeller Foundation, the General Education Board and the Rockefeller Institute. The best estimate of these unrecorded philanthropies as obtained yesterday from an individual in close touch with the Rockefeller activities, is that they may have to $10,000,000 possibly more and if this is accurate Mr. Rockefeller has given away no less than $425,000,-ort- o and ranks far and away the most stupendous giver in authenic history The Christmas gift of an even hundred millions with which he amazed the world on the eve of the great holiday is divided into two parts to General Education Board and $50,000,000 to the Rockefeller Foundation. The former gift, as Mr. Rockefeller directly states, is to assist in immediately providing for the urgent need of more adequate salaries for college profesors and instructors. Therefore, he directs the General Education Board, trustees of the sum, to employ principal as well as income for the purpose of cooperating with the higher institutions of learning in raising sums specifically devoted to increase of teachers' salaries. Mr. Rockefeller makes it plain in the statement issued that swift distribution is necessary. To accomplish his desire, therefore, certain officers of the General Education Board will start soon upon a tour in which they will study the necessities of colleges in the salary. There are about 600 colleges of prominence in the United States and many, if not most, of them are now J. 1 TWO POINTS TO REMEMBER ABOUT THE NEW EDISON There are many sound reproducing devices on the market.

There used to be, and very likely still is, a parlor game called "The Missing Word." Mr. Will Hays, chairman of the Republican National Committee, has improved upon it. He has invented a game which might be called "The Missing Principle." He hasoffered $10,000 for a platform for the Republican party. In fact, he is in the market for three platforms. The maker of the best it to TTave $6,000 For the second best $3,000 is to be paid; and for the third $1,000 Just what Mr. Hays intends to do with the second and third choices" has not been made public. But he is celebrated for his thrift. Perhaps he intends to auction them off to other parties. The price is very fair, even in these days of high prices. The platforms are to contain 6,000 words. That means $1 per word (the figure at which "African Game Trails" was produced by an emiment Republican naturalist) for the first, and would give the writer of the second best 50 cents for each Of course Mr. Hays, like every successful modern, believes, in advertising Perhaps his real purpose is to "sell" "the Republican party to the American people Even so, there is something tragic in the offer. Our great party platforms are made in an awful hurry. Expediency mere than principle is the chief reason for which a party makes its declarations. In a letter' to Chairman Hays, Mr. Truxtum Beale, who is to givj the money for the prizes, says: "There was never a time when the! two great parties have differed so fundamentally in principle as now." And yet some months ago Vice President Marshall announced that he would give $5 to any person who would explain to him the difference between the Republican and the Democratia parties.

Ball started with a complete grinding plant equipped with the most madern machinery, which enables him to manufacture fine Eyeglasses and Spectacles, giving special attention to the filling of Oculists' priscriptions. He started the business alone, with only an ideal: that courteous treatment, fair dealing, quality, accuracy and service would win. Experience had taught him that "the best glasses one could get were the only safe kind to wear," so he proceeded along that line. The above photograph of the interior of The Ball Optical Company, surrounded by the many and able associates, represents the outgrowth of the "BALL" ideal, and ample evidence of the correctness of his judgement. iSJ " p-s ?

The farms, mines and factories cannot increase their output beyond the capacity of the railroads to haul their products. Railroads are now near the peak of their carrying capacity. Without railroad expansion more engines, more cars, more tracks, more terminals there can be little increase in production. But this country of ours is going to keep right on growing and the railroads must grow with it. To command in the investment markets the flow of new capital to expand railroad facilities and so increase production there must be public confidence in the future earning power of railroads.

Karly In January, 1018, this new town had a few temporary buildings nnd a population of 800. Tills had Jumped by the middle of August to more than U1.(HK. A population multiplied by TO in 7 months. In the management of the new towns and army cantonments that e sprung up during the war the evils (lint attended the growth or mushroom cities have been avoided by the application of modern welfare systems. But nowhere were conditions more difficult than nt Muscle Shoals. Here was a malarial region threatened at the same time with other deadly disease epidemics. Trims portation was lacking. No neurliy labor was available and the general labor short nee was at Its most acute tage. Costs of labor and supplier were leaping over night. Furthermore, Muscle Shoals differed from all the other new war towns Inasmuch as it was to be permanent. New Government Devised. The managers, besides city government, had to handle the entire retail business of the town. A camp supervisor's department was put In charge of the maintenance of all buildings, fire protection and sanitation. The camp supervisor looked after everything from the mending of a lock to the remodeling of groups of building' or laying sewers or steam mains. For the bachelor contingent a commissary department was necessary. The business department managed the stores, canteens, motion picture theaters, pool parlors, tailor shops, dry cleaning establishments, barber shops, newsstands, a hotel, u vegetable farm and a hog farm where 1,000 hogs were raised on the wastes from eating places. It maintained a slaughter house where these hogs were put through the regular packing house course. It operated a laundry which cleaned 7,493 pieces a day. Then there was o real estate department that rented and managed the family quarters and a housing department which assigned to quarters everybody excepting the families. Under separate jurisdiction from Its community director were the police. The health department. In charge of a physician from New York city. started with a small office in one of the temporary buildings, and was grown soon full splendidly and equipped. Conditions were favorable to disease. The winter was the severest on record In northern Alabama. The men were compelled to work either in deep snow or mud above their knees. As a result a pneumonia epidemic developed among the Negroes that spring, hater in the year a typhoid epidemic was threatened. Moreover, the site of the plant was in the heart of the malaria district. Hut the pneumonia epidemic was checked, the typhoid threat nipped in the bud, and malaria stamped out. A Health Record Established hospital presentThe little first-ai- d ly grew to a complete modern tnstltu-liowith u nurses' home and a separate dispensary for dental, eye, em, nose, throat, geulto-urinurclinics and dispensary u surgical for first-ai- d work. During the eight months when the li ath rate was not affected by the In fluensa and pneumonia epidemics tiie general health rate was 12.4 per thou per year, which Is lower than In most cities In the same latitude and climate, and the pneumonia death mi. during the epidemic was lower than in most army cantonments. Much of toe success of the health administration is due to the establish uieiil of the Muscle Shoals sanitary district by the United States Public Health Service The education ami welfare depart uMmt also bad a vital work to perform t here was a school population of over l uXW.

Artists have declared from time Immemorial thnt hair waa "woman's crowning glory," but some women do not treat their hair as If It were a glory. They have seemed to take pleasure In twisting their locks from nature's course, thinning them and torturing them by artificial waving. The fancy thnt developed about a year ago, of cutting the hair short, may be responsible for the adoption of the mode of elaborately ornamented coiffures for evening this winter. At the present moment much attention is given to these elaborate coiffures, and there are many and widely different Varieties. ' The influence ol the Orient Is leas marked than in recent seasons, and many of these coiffures take their Inspiration from the folk costumes of France and neighboring countries. Flowers worn In Spanish fashion, peasant headdress, Dutch diadems, and the tulle streamers of Boulogne are high in favor. Among the ornaments favored by the coiffures of this season are cloth of silver and aigrettes or paradise, which are Invariably worn slanting toward the hack and never standing straight. Silver bandeaux supporting a motif In brilliants In the middle of the front. are also very smart, and It is noticeable that they are worn, more and more, crossing the forehead Just above the level of the eyes. Some youthful heads are crowned with very narrow bands of blonde tulle on which a string of jewels Is mounted. Farm Lands Grow In Value.
