Town In the West Is 1Growing Rapicily ITS MERCHANTS PATRONIZED JkUney That Was Formerly Sent to the r Mail Order Houses Now Spent at Home and Kept In Circulation There f Business Increased Greatly There is a hustling and progressive l 1 little town in the middle west that is quickly growing into a city but the isIknown to few people It started one r day when a resident of the town was discussing local matters with the st- aJt10n master while waiting for his train I understand he remarked that Jones the dry goods merchant Is not doing business enough to pay for the oats his horses eat and that Brown the hardware dealer is also on the yerge of failure Yes its a fact replied the sta Lion master Too bad isnt it Well in a way it is of course but It must be their own fault Antiquated business methods are probably the cause of it Thats where you make a big mis take promptly returned the station master I happen to know Brown and Jones very well and 1 tell you i they are a couple of mighty up to date business men Would you care to know the real facts in the casE1 y Well Im not particularly interested In these fellows and their affairs was the reply butrThats just it broke in the sta tlon master Most of the residents here live along year after yeojvwith A ut a thought to our tradesmen n and when one of them fails you lay it to antiquated business methods As a felte have a right to expect Why how do you mean I mean that instead of sending to the mail order houses or picking u in the city anything you need in the hardware clothing or dry goods line It Is your duty to give the home merchants a chance for that trade Of avyou can get out of findtyou as bell If not better right here at home and just think what It means to thr local merchant Why thousands of a dollars are sent away every year when they could have been spent right here to better advantage repliedtV1 Well Ill give you a little proof of lt went on the station master I happened to be talking to Brown the hardware merchant the other day when yoUr boy came along on a new 7L tricycle and we stopped him and looked the machine over I got that wheel through a man or 1tierbQuse for 1850 said the resi dent proudly Yes thats what the boy told us and after he had gone Brown took me Into his store and showed me Identi u cally the same wheel for 15 You dont tell me Well why doesnt he advertise that he has such bar gains Simply because you people here fit frrhb patronize the mail order houses I Almost exclusively dont give him your trade and consoquently he hasnt the money to do it He knows the value of advertising In the local papers and spends every dollar he can afford to In that direction but a share of the local a trade that Is rightly his would give him an opportunity to spread out In that direction Money spent at home t yon know Is going to be put In circu lation at home but when you Send a dqllar away from here It Is gone for ever There Is a big howl In this town too for improvements but If were jpolng to letthe merchants run down t i hill this way the town Isnt going to move ahead to great extent Welltheres a good deal of sound sense in what you say said the resident after a little thought Ill bring this matter up at the club tonight and- fee what the others think of It A few months later the merchants in that town were doing more business than they had In years and It wasnt long before imProvements other di sections were coming thick and fast A board of trade was eventually or 1ganized the local papers received such rapport that they could take a

Nevertheless he is peaceful in the main and seeks the simpfe life amusing himself often with worldwide travel and always with delicate gustatory Joys He is the daintiest feeder that swims always kills his own game and thereby insures its freshness wherefore his flesh is a delight to the palate of mankind and wherefore again men go forth to kill him for market and thereby at times fall adventures

stupid whale and often the sting of the harpoon changes this luxurious ocean gastronome Into a raging water devil quick to perceive his advantage charging with the speed of a bullet and the accuracy

term is now understood in thefway manufacturing their own clothing was mostly done in the household the spinning wheel and the handloom were utensils as familiar in the old fashioned kitchens as the pots and kettles of the housewife The homespun tgarments worn b our forefathers were fashioned ou ofwool grown on the home farm carded by hand washed in tubs slum and woVen by hand fulled and finish ed at home cut up and sewedall by the joist labor of husband wife sons and daughters IJhe finer clothes worn in those days were all imported and as the colonies grew and multipliedand their consumption of English textiles increased the manufacturers of the mother country foresaw a wondrous new market opening up before them Time desire to retain and increase that market for textiles in the man ufacture of which England already led the world was far more promin eat among the causes leading up to the American Revolution than Us historians have yet discovered Garments Were Plain The homespun garments of colonial days were plain and wore like iron their ingredients were indicated in the name commonly applied to th clothlillcey woolsey It was a fabric of woolen weft woven on a linen warp Linen was muchmore commonly produced in the household than cotton fabrics and wool was more in use than all other fabrics combined Cotton was a scarce commodity in colonial American until long after the Revolution It possessed a value equal to that of wool and sometimes very much higher What little of it was used prior to the 19th century was mostly imported from Barbados jWIien Samuel Slater started the fist American cotton mill at Pawtucket in 1793 he insisted upon using cotton from the Indies because of the poor quality of the cotton then raised at home No one dreamed when the Shipping and Commercial List and New York Price Current first made its appearance that America was destined to become the cottonpro ducing country of the world nor did Slaters little mill of 250 spindles whicli lead then been in operation five years give signs that it was the germ of an American industry whichwould consume annually within 100 years more cotton than all the world was then growing The history of the textile indus tries during the colonial period is no developmentI tury employing more capital and creating a greater value of annual product tItan any other group except iron and srael Our forefatheis realized how im portant it was that the colonists should learn to clothe themselves They resorted to all sorts of exped ients some of which smack strongly of state socialisms to overcome the difficulties in the way They offered bounties to increase the number of sheep and promote the growth of flax In Massachusetts laws were passed making it compulsory that each fam ily should spin a given quantity of yarn every year under penalties of heavy fines- Gradually the household textile in dustries assumed an importance which alarmed the mother country and the lords of trade attempted various restrictive orders to prevent and harass a development which threatened to destroy the colonial market for t7chi jf products of British industry Parliament passed act in 1774which was shortly after the Arkwright inventions had inaugurated the modern factory system forbidding the exportation under heavy penalties of any of the ma chines used in the cotton silk wool en or linen manufacture This statute which remained in force with certain modifications fin til 1845 was evidence ofa puerile hope that the English people could keep the fruits of inventive genius

States American machinists and inventors did the rest thatlem barrass andmake trebly difficult the early development of our textile fac tories A century ago the American textile industries were easily 100 years behind those of Great Britain First Steps of Evolution The first steps of evolution were the fulling mi utilizing the power of the small streams relieving the housewife of the duty of finishing the clothand the cardingmachine Farmers for miles brought their wool to be converted in rolls ready for the spinning wheel After Slater had successfully applied the Arkwright invention to the spinning of cotton at Pawtucket little mills sprang up allover New Engalnd which spun bothcotton and woolen yarns b waterpower Hand looms wero still in use in all these mills until 1813 when the invention of n power loom by Francis C Lowell led io the building of the Waltham factory and the American textile industry was fair ly launched Power spinning and weaving machines were quickly aP- plied to the manufacture of woolens mad the death knell of tiic household manufacture of textiles was sounded Growth is Steady From that day to this the growth of the textile industry in America has berg steady and wholesome Only in the most remote country districts can heardIan spinning yarn for the family stockings and mittens and the old hand loom is now utilized ifat all for the making of rag carpet and rugs The textile industry began with water power but soon outgrew time tiny mills scattered about the various streams Steam power was necessary to run the large mills except in cities well favored by extensive water power and now olectricity is taking the lead Electricity is peculiarly adapted to textile mill work because in the manufacture of textile fabrics the power must be absolutely uniform In addition to regularity elec tricity is the cleanest power in the world By driving large machines and rroups of small machinery by in dividual motors little or no shafting and belting is necessary and any part of the plant can be shut dqwn without affecting the remainder increas ing the output and lessening the cpstj of productionFirst in the World The Columbia Mills Cohfiiibia South Carolina were the firsttex tile mills in the world to depend en tirely upon the electric drive These motors manufactured by the General Electric Company are still giving as satisfactory servic as the day they were installed fourteen years ago Today a total of over 1000000 h p is used in cotton mills in the South This is more than a third of the total horsepower required

1a single volume all the laws and court de Federalwhichthe United States This manual will be of immense practIcalvalue and it is somewhat remarkable considering the wide number ol interests which are touched btluse laws that no such compilation has been made before tins With the constantly growing de mand for InterState waterways the increasing utilization of water power for the development of electricity and the widening areas o semiaric Western plains that are being mad arable lawsuat the present time affect the interests ofa wide variety of inch viduals and corporations timid in the immediate future the number whose business is directly touched will beyond doubt be greatly increased Extremely Thorough The work which the Nanonal Con servation Commission is doing along this line is extremely thorough and the compilation will be complete It will include all State and National statutes and all court decisions which concern water rights and kindred questions on both navigable andnon navigable streams and lak s The ci tations will include all acts which relate to riparian rights mid public usufruct of water and all statutes which concern mills pollution of water interference with navigation or the use of streams for power damming of streams diverting stream flow and soonin short all acts which affect the use ofwaters and their private appropriation t power or other purposes In the book which will be included also some authoritative discussion of the prin ciples involved in those laws Absolutely Complete The National Conservation Commission in its endeavor to make the compilation absolutely complete and accurate has called upon the Governors of all the States for assistance and the replies in every instance have promised support Consider ably more than half time States have already appointed State Conservation Commissions for the specific purpose of cooperating with the National Commission in its work of gathering the material which will be embodied in the report to the Presi dent the first of the year In the other States the State officials whose work most nearly touches this project are at work A Single Volume A single volume containing all the laws which bear upon the use of waters in the various parts of the country will be an exceedingly useful reference handbook It holds post bilities of an een greater usefulness in that it will exhibit within time limits that make heady comparison pos sib e not only the general tendencies- of the laws and decisions on this subject but the discrepancies that exist between the regulations of dif ferent States Monopolizing Water The fear is frequently expressed that the tendency towards monopili zation of water power which has already made very great progress- in some parts of the country will re- St lt in practically all of this extremely valuable natural resource passing from the people as a whole into the hands of comparatively a few men with resulting higher cost of water power and waterdeveloped electricity to consumers and a tremendous advantage to the few pos sessors If this danger is justified by the present laws it is a matter of great importance to make this fact apparent

HARD FOUGHT AND EXCITING FOOTBALL GAME ON LOCAL FIELD Score Stood at End of Second Half Georgetown 12 Kentucky Wesleyan 11Small Crowd in Attendance Before a handful of people Ken tucky Wesleyan and Georgetown Col leges played Monday afternoon one of the best games of football ever seen on a local field The game was hard foughtfrom beginning to end The score does not show the relative strength Hof the teams Wesleyan outplayed the heavier rivals from be ginning to end At times sensational work was done Atkin made a forty yard run that was spectacular Boles on tackles around was always good for five yards and Cockrellcame around more like a shot out of a gun than a human being One Troublesome Play Georgetown had just one play that was troublesome That was an on side Quarterbackkick She sent four men around the end and two always got through to get the ball This play was successful time after time the local ends and laves being unable to block these men off This was urnetically the only way in which Georgetown could gain first down Wesleyan showed up stronger in the line and in the local field than the op ponents The forward passing of the local men was almost always suc cessful There should have been more of it Wesleyan suffered a se vere loss when Williams was unable to continue in the game at quarter He received a severe blow on the head that temporarily disabled him Taylor came in from behind to quar ter and played agood game but lacks the versitality that Williams shows getting off his plays Lack of Practise The local men showed the lacC of practise Three days in over two weeks owing to the unsettled state of Athelties constitutes all the work they have had and this is not con ducive to the best football This lack of practise was noticable in the handling of punts These were fumbled several times the other temI covering the ball However the Wesleyan men deserve great praise Struggling on througha number of disappointments they played the kind o football that wins games As a rule they tackled low and hard seldom losing their manThe line was like a stone wall Georgetown making first down but a very few times in the two long hal ves Every man played good football and so makes it hard to pickI stars Hunt and Boles tackled in fine shape The neck embrace method of tackling was left almost entirely- to GeorgetownProf of Kentucky State University who refereed the game said that Kentucky Wesleyans foe mations and general play was as good as anything that he had seen States field Many Touchdowns- A summary shows that Wesleyan made first down twentyfour times to ten times for Georgetown and eight of these were from the quarterback kick Georgetown was forced to kick al most every time they got possession- of the ball and the victory is due to the ability of their ends to get un der these punts The play was almost entirely in the territory of the visitors No less than five touchdowns were credited against them One feature that did more to help the boys play good ball than any other was the splendid support given bythe ladies They cane right dOfl on the line and yelled until they could yell no more A feature that is enough to discourage anv team was the miserable attendance Less than 100 people passed through the gates and that to see an intercollegiate game State University drew a crowd of over 2000 at seventyfive cents per head to see a game not as good as the one yesterday Where is the support and enthusiasm of the peo ple when they almost to a man leave the boys to play to empty side lines The game in detail was us fpljowa First Half Capt Howardofl Georgetown won the toss and chose to defend the uphill goal Wesleyan kicked off to the ten yard line The ballwas brought back ten yards before

Godbey recovered Tay lors tumble on Wesleyans fifteen yard line Norris fumbled the next play and Georgetown got the ball Georgetown lost fifteen yards on an incomplete forward pass and kicked out of bounds on Weselyans five yard line Aitkin took the ball and sailed gracefully along for thirty yards and then a forward pass was made to Georgetown The visitors didnt like our line so made a short quarterback kick Mr Collins gath ered this in and rolled over the BrogelkickedGeorgetown 6 Wesleyan tried a short kick to the side but a Georgetown man got the ball Boles got him This attempts through Wesleyans line failed to net ten yards and Wesleyan took the ball On the next lineup Williams was hurt and fumbled the ball to the opponents Stone was substituted at ends Taylor being shifted to quarterback Georgetown got eight yards on two attempts and fumbled on the third but recovered the ballafter it had added five yards to their gain Three trials again failed to net the necessary distance and Wesleyan got the ball on her own thirtythree yard line Taylor negotiated four yards and then kicked to fifty yard lineGeorgetown failed to gain through the line but added twelve yards by another quarterback kick Wesleyan then spilled two plays including a trick double pass and when Georgetown kicked took the baIl- out of bounds on her thirty yard line Crapster was good for four yards and when Taylor tried to infringe on the copyright of Georgetowns favorite kick they took the ball on the forty yard line Again they hammered Wesleyans line and end but found nothing doing They kicked and al though Stone got the ball the referee overlooked him in the pile and gave it to Georgetown on Wesleyans eighteen yard line Wesleyan was very much at home on the next two attempts to walkover her so George town obligingly made a forward pass to Aitkin Wesleyan punted and Georgetowns man made a pretty re turn of thirty yards On the next play they fumbled and Stone got the ball Norris waded through center for four yards and the place looked good to Boies so he went through for four more Georgetown was pen alized five yards for off side play Crapster Boles arid Cockrell added eleven yards Taylor Cockrell and Norris added twelve more The Wes leyan meat were on the twentyfive yard line and going merrily through for five yards or more at each call when time was called Score at end of half

young Lawn I am quite ready to do all the worrying Captain Sol wyn e But Selwvji merely shook his head repeating You see how it is dont youThe matter of business arrangements apparently ended then and there Lawns company sent several men to Selwyn and wrote him a great many lettersunlike the government which had not replied to his briefly tentative suggestion that chaosite be condition ally examined tested and considered- So I the matter remained in abeyance and Selwyn employed two extra men and continued storage tests and ex perimented with rifled and smoothbore tubes watchfully uncertain yet as to the necessity of Inventing a solvent to neutralize possible corrosion after a propelling charge had been exploded Everybody in the vicinity had heard about his experiments Everybody pretended interest but few were sincere and of the sincere few were unselfishly interestedhis sister Eileen Drina and Lansing and maybe one or two others However the younger set now predominant from Wyossett to Wonder head made up parties to visit Sel wyns cottage which had become known as the Chrysalis and Selwyn good naturedly exploded a pinch or two of the stuff for their amusement antnoyanee or boredom In fact he behaved so amiably during gratuitous in terruptions that he won the hearts of the younger set who presently came to the unanimous conclusion that there was romance In the air And they sniffed it with delicate noses uptilted and liked the One man often the least suitable Is usually the unanimous choice of the younger sort where in the disconcert ring summer time the youthful congre segregationf frankly land innocently They admitted cheer fully thai Selwyn was their idol But that gentleman remained totally un conscious that he hadbeen set up by them upon the shores of the summer sea On the sunlit Sands dozens of young people were hurling tennis balls at each other Above the beach under the long pavilions sat mothers arid chaperons Motors beach carts and victorias were still arriving to dis charge gayly dressed fashionables for the hour was early and up and down the inclined wopdeu walk leading from the bathing pavilion to the sands a constant procession of bathers passed with nod and eestureof laughing salu tation some already retiring to the i showers after a brief ocean plunge the majority running down to the shore eager for the first frosty and aromatic embrace of the surf rolling in under a cloudless sky of blue As Eileen Erroll emerged from the surf and came wading shoreward through the seething shallows she caught sight of Selwyn sauntering across the sands tow rd the water and halted knee deep smilingly expectant certain that hi hud seen her Gladys Orcbihl passing her saw Sel wyn atftjie sa me moment and her clear ringing salute nnd slender arm aloft arrested his attention and the next moment they were off together swim ming to ward the sponsoii canoe which Gerald had just launched with the as sistance of Sandon Craig and Scott 0 Innis For a moment Eileen stood there motionless Knee high the fiat ebb bo1i d r and hissed dragging at her stockiticed feet as though tojlnrW Jtier seaward with the others Yesterday she would have gone without a thought to join the others but yesterday is yesterday It seemed to her as she stood there that something disquieting v Something disquieting had come into the world 1 had suddenly come into the world something unpleasant but indefinite yet sufficient to leave her vaguely apprehensive Somebody threw a tennis ball at her She caught it and hurled it in return and for a few minutes the white fet covered balls flew back and forth from scores of graceful eager hands A moment or two passed when no balls came her way She turned and walked to the foot of a dune and seated her celf cross legged on the hot sand her serious beautiful eyes fixed steadily on a distant white spot the sponson canoe where Gladys and Selwyn sat taeirpaddle blades flashing in the sun How far away they were Gerald was with them Curious that Selwyn had not seen her waiting for him knee deep in the surf curious that he had seen Gladys instead True Gladys had called to him and signaled him white arm upflung Gladys was very pretty with her heavy dark hair and melting Spanish eyes and her softly rounded olive skinned figure Gladys had called to him and she had not That was true and lately for the last few days or perhaps moreshe her self had been a trIfle less Impulsive in her greeting of Seiwyn a little less sans facon with hIm After ally a man comes when it pleases him Why should a girl call him unless sheun lessti iiiess- Perplexed her grave eyes were fixed on the sea where now the white canoe pitched nearer close on now When the canoe suddenly capsized Gladys umped but Selwyn went with Jt boat and man tumbling into the tumult over and over As Eileen looked she saw a dark streak leap across his facesaw hUn stoop and wash It off and stand looking blindly about while again the sudden dark line crisscrossed his face from temple to chin and spread wider like a stain Philip she called springing to her feet and scarcely knowing that she had spokenHe her and came toward her in a halting dazed way stopping twice to cleanse his face of the bright blood that streaked it Its nothing he said The infernal thing hit me Oh dont use that as she drenched her kerchief in cold sea water and held it toward him with both hands Take it II beg of you she stammered Is it sserious Why no he said his senses clearing It was only a rap on the head and this blood is merely a nuisance Thank you I will use your kerchief if you insist Itll stop In a moment any wayPlease sit here she saidhere where Ive been sitting He did so muttering Whrit a nui since It will stop in a second You l1ef tnt remain here with me you know Go in It Is simply glorious Ive been in I was drying my hair He glanced up smiling then as the wet kerchief against his forehead reddened he started to rise but she took it frorn his fingers hastened to the waters edge rinsed it and brought it back cold and wet Please sit perfectly still she said A girl likes to do this sort of thing for a man Ylf Id known that he laughed Id have had it happen frequently She only shook her head watching him unsmiling But the pulse In her had become very quiet again Its no end of fun in that canoe he observed Gladys Orchil and I wqrk It beautifully I saw you did she nodded Oh Where were you Why didnt you tome I dont know Gladys called you I was waiting for you expecting you Then Gladys called you rI didnt see you he said- I didnt call you she observed sef renely and after a moment she added Do you see only those who hail you Captain Selwyn He laughed vjn this life cruise a good sailor always answers a friendly hail So do Il she said Please hail me after thisbecause I dont care to take the initiative If you neglect to do it dont count on my hailing you anymore The stain spread on the kerchief Once more she went to the waters edge rinsed It and returned with It 1 think it has almost stopped bleed ingr she remarked as he laid the cloth against his forehead You frightened me Captain Selwyn I am not easily frightenedI it Did you know I was frightened Of course I did Oh she said vexed how could thingINo you very sensibly called me Philip Thats how I knew you were frightened andIneck So I was silly after all she said biting at her under lip and trying to meet his humorous gray eyes with un concern But her face was burning now and aware of it she turned her gaze resolutely on the sea Also to her further annoyance her heart awoke beating unwarrantably absurdly until the dreadful Idea seized her that he could hear it Disconcerted she stood upa straight youthful figure against the sea The wind blowing her disheveled hair across her cheeks and shoulders fluttered her clinging skirts as she rested both hands on her hips and slowly walked toward the waters edgeShall we swim1 he asked her She half turned and looked around and down at him Im all right Its stopped bleeding Shall we he inquired looking at her Youve got to wash your hair again anyhowShe feeling suddenly stupid and childish and knowing she was speak ing stupidly Would you not rather join Gladys again I thought that thatThought what Nothing she said furious at her self I am going to the showers Goodby Goodby he said troubled Un less we walk to the pavilion to gether But you are going In againare you not Not unless you do Wwhat have I to do with it Cap tain Selwyn Its a big ocean and rather lonely without yoM he said so seriously that she looked around again and laughed hIts full of pretty girls just now Plunge in my melancholy friend The whole ocean is a dream of fair women todayIf they be not fair to me what care I how fair they be he para phrased springing to his feet and keeping step beside her Really that wont do she said Much moonlight and Gladys and the Minster twins convict you Do you remember that I told you one day in early summer that Sheila and Dor othy and Gladys would mark you for their own Oh my inconstant courtier they are yonder And I absolve you Adieu uDo you remember what I told you one day In early summer he re turned coolly Dont talk this way she said exasperated under u rush of sensations utterly Incomprehensible stinging confused emotions that beat chaotic time to the clamor of her pulses Why ddo you speak of such things 1 she repeated with a fierce little indrawn breathThy do youwhen you knowwhen I saIdexplained everything She looked at him fearfully You are somehow spoiling our friendship she said And I dont exactly know how you are doing it but something of the comfort of it is being taken away from me and dont dont dont do it She covered her eyes with her clinch ed hands for a moment motionless then her arms dropped and she turn ed sharply with a gesture which left him alone there and walked rapidly across the beach to the pavilion Chapter 20 UNCHEON being the chil = drens hour Miss Er H rolls silence remained unnoticed in the jolly W uproar Besides Gerald and Boots were discuss Ing the huge house party lantern fete and dance which the Orchils were giv ing that night for the younger sets and Selwyn too seemed to take un usual interest in the discussion though Eileens part in the conference was limited to an occasional nod or mono was wild to go and furious at not having been asked but when Boots offered to stay home she resolutely re fused to accept the sacrifice uNo she said they are pigs not to ask girls of my age but you may go Boots and Ill promise not to be unhappy Mrs Gerard gave the rising signal and Selwyu was swept away in the rushing herd of children out on the veranda where for awhile he smoked and drew pictures for the younger Ge lards Later some of the children were packed off for a nap Billy with his assorted puppies went away with Drina and Boots ever hopeful of a fox or rabbit Nina Gerard

Practicing Art fI SideStepping Lions an- dj Leopards The socalled waltzing perform ance of the ostrich is familiar to all in South Africa but few outsiders have ever heard of it It consists of a rapid whirling movement the wings spread out and alternately ele vated and depressed It is a fasci nating sight when indulged in by a large flock This gay behavior is no doubt instinctive and as with other instinctsa it is perfected by experience Ostrich chicks begin the whirl even when rearedaway from other ostriches performance the following theory of the signifi cance of this playfulactivity The wild ostrich can protect himself against lions and leopards in no other way than by flight When chased by a beast of prey the os trich starting to run jerks so quick ly from side to side that no beast would be likely to have time to set himself for a spring in one direction before the bird had changed his course The South Africans believe that the instinctive waltzing movement oft the ostrich is useful in perfecting the bird in the art of suddenly twisting and turning which is most likely to assist it to elude its natural enemies the larger carni vora TfooT GOOD AT CONUNDRUMS Why IsIt

The pantheon or royal tomb is at the palace of the Escurial situated 3000 feet above the level of the sea and some distance from the capital Only kings queens and mothers of kings are buried there the coffins of the kings lying on one side those of the queens on the other After lying in state for several days in the throne room in Madrid an enor mous procession is formed accompany ing the body to the Escurial A halt Is made on the way and the corpse rests there for one night In the morning the lord high cham berlain stands at the side of the coffin and says in loud tones Is your majesty pleased to proceed on your journey After a short silence the pro cession moves on and winds up to the grand portal of the palace These doors are never opened except to ad mit a royal personage dead or alive When the casket containing the remains is at last placed in the vault the chamberlain unlocks it and kneel ing down calls with a loud voice Senor Senor Senor After a solemn pause he cries again His majesty does not reply Then it is true the king is dead He then locks the coffin gives the key to the prior and taking his staff of office breaks it in pipcesand flings them at the casket The booming of the guns and the tolling of bells an nounce to the nation that the king has gone to his final resting place r QUEER TELEGRAPH POLES I Made of Adobe In BoliviaGrowing Trees Used In Africa The most original telegraph line in the world once extended from the cap ital of Bolivia La Paz to the town of Oruro In this part of Bolivigj there are no growing trees and wood is so difficult to find that even the ordinary household furniture of the natives is invariably made not of wood but of dried mud or adobe So when the war broke out between Chile and Bolivia and a telegraph line became urgent it was adobe that was chosen for the queerest telegraph poles in existence These pillars were built on stone foundations and measured about five feet square at the base with a height of about fifteen feet They were placed at intervals of about 861 feet and thus held the wire at a height sufficient to clear the only animals of the country the llama and the donkey The total length of the line was 156 miles Among other curious telegraph lines is the growing pole line erected in Uganda by an English engineer who could not find any dead wood which would withstand the white ants and hit upon the idea of transporting grow ing bark cloth trees to the side of the roads and using them as poles In the Dutch East Indies growing trees are turned to account also but there a wire is stretched across the road between the trees on either side and the Insulator Is suspended in its middle and the line is thus over the road and clear from vegetation Cbi cago Tribune Watch Springs The watch
