Monne, In Charge of the Estate for

25 Tears, Did All in His Power to

Save the Building. Mahopac Firemen

Put Out Fire on Roof of H. II Vree-

land's Twenty Car Garage.

Mrs. Dennis Hogan while hanging up

clothes (a beautiful day for that Job)

first saw the smoke and flames about

13:30 p. m., coming from the direction

of Blanchard's residence, which is lo­

cated on the west side of Turk Hill

Toad and Is highly elevated. She noti­

fied her husband who at first thought

the caretaker on the place was burn­

ing rubbish, however, upon closer In­

spection he saw flames coming from

the roof of the house. Immediately Mr.

told his wife to call Mrs. Fred

rlinl at Mm. Wm. B. Reed's residence

to notify some carpenters who were

firemen working on the house there.

The firemen, Alfred Vorls, Edward

Hancock and Thomas Durkin, made all

speed for the scene of the fire while

Mrs. Perllni phoned to Mrs. Morehouse,

who relayed the call to her husband

at his place of business. Then there

was another phone or two and by the

time the fire truck left Main street,

thirty minutes or more had elapsed.

Meanwhile the fire didn't wait to be

put out and with a gentle breeze waft­

ing through the beautiful pine and

birch trees the flames raged on and

enveloped the masslv» house.

In tin house at the time of the first

outbreak of fire were Mrs. Holmes, a

urse, a cook and her daughter, Oou.

leur Kinney, Mrs. Blanchard's

rand son, and Emil Monne, the care­

taker. Emil, who without a doubt feels

the loss as much as the owner as he

has cared for" the place since it was

built, and not only that but Was the

first person to sleep in it, used every

ounce cl fire protection there was at

hand, and kept as cool-headed as any

one could under such a responsibility.

He directed the work of the firemen

and assisted Chief Morehouse in mak­

ing a water connection with a small

tank in the rear of the house.

Well, in fact the whole situation was

an IF. If this, if that, if the other

thing nad been as it Fhould have been

to make a perfect and heroic put out,

there wouldn't have been any cause for

this article or a lot ••? talk about the

fire and what happened at It or after it.

However, fate had its own way, as it

usually does, and the result is the loss

of one of Brewster's most beautiful

homes. And like many other big losses

it will make fireside conversation for

many long cold nights.

When Fire Chief Morehouse arrived

he saw at once that one fire company

could not begin to handle the job so

he called for the Carmel Fire Co., but

they were out in a field putting out a

grass fire, however, he located the Chief

of the Mahopac Fire Co. and thf-y made

a record run over the road between


No chance to save the house was the

call coming from Captain Emil as he

came out the back door with both arms

full of valuables and a clothes basket

full of china and glass on his head.

That was signal enough for every avail­

able man and woman strong enough

to carry as much as a clothes pin to

go to work.

Noah might have nad some excite­

ment getting animals into the Ark be­

fore it rained, but if lie had witnessed

the exit of household goods from that

beautiful home, at the time partially

surrounded by flames leaping a hun­

dred feet in the air, he would have sat

down and wept. One furniture saver

in the heat of excitement apparently

had been to the bath room for some ice

water and came dashing out a side

door with a cake of soap in his mouth,

a towel wrapped around his neck and

both hands full of toilet tools including

the latest shiek razor and a rubber

tooth brush. The las*, article out was

a Frigidaire about the size of an up­

right piano. Its quick exit required tak­

ing .down a few feet jf the house. The

acid pipes connecting the refrigerat­

ing plant broke and one man was ov­

ercome by the fumes. Afterward he was

taken lor a walk through the hot house

where hundreds of 'beautiful scented

.plants were in bloom and soon revived.

west, thus keeping the flying embers

away from the barn, hot house and

numerous out buildings. A large grape

ed on H. H. Vreeland's property which

was possibly an eighth of a mile away.

At the first discovery no one realized

the extent of the flames, which seemed

to cover a wide area in the attic.

The house had three very large

chimneys with six fire places. The ori­

E. Voris who built the house. Roughly

estimating the cost of replacing such a

February Chicks Should

Make Rapid Growth. »

Leghorn ehicits hatched In February

should be fed rations that make

for continual rapid growth, Is the advice

offered by the poultry department

of the New Jersey Agricultural college.

Pullets from early hatched chicks

cannot be expected to produce a profitable

number of eggs daring the summer

and fall, if their growth Is stunted

In any manner. Any good baby

chick ration will prove satisfactory

until the birds are eight or ten weeks

old. • After that*date, the specialists

advise that they be placed upon a ration

similar to a good laying ration,

but containing a larger amount of

minerals. To have the bird come Into

production as soon as possible and at

the some time have her continue her

body growth Is the poultryman'S aim.

No matter how they are fed, February

hatched birds can always be

expected to go through a moult in the

late fall. They can use this period

for any Increase in weight or growth

that has not been accomplished previously.

One must remember that an early

hatched bird is an entirely different

individual from a late hatched bird.

The later hatches should have a much

slower development in order to prevent

an early winter moult, but with

the early hatched stock the aim is to

get all of the eggs possible before the

early winter moult

Feed Turkey Breeders

for Vigorous Poults

Too much corn In the turkey's wln«

tor ration may make the birds too fat

for the production of eggs of high

hatcbabillty. Some breeders feed 8

parts of oats to 1 of corn and And

that the stock come through the winter

In condition to produce vigorous

poults. Equal parts of corn, wheat

and oats make a good grain ration

for turkey breeding 6tock. The addition

of cull vegetables, and alfalfa

or clover is necessary until the turkeys

can foruge in the spring.

Before the turkey bens begin to ley,

It often pays to give tbem a hopper

of the same balanced laying mash

which lg used for the chickens. Where

they have hud nothing but grain they

may be reluctant to eat the mash but

if it is kept before them, some of the

mash will probably be eaten and It

will help to Improve egg production

and keep up the vigor of the torkey

hens while they are laying. Keep a

hopper of oy6ter shells before the

turkey hens to help in producing firm

shells on the eggs and reduce breakage

In the nests.

Feeding the turkey .breeding stock

on soil away from the chickens is a

help in preventing blackhead and other

turkey diseases. Diseases are often

spread through the medium of the

droppings which have contaminated

the feed. Some losses may be prevented

by feeding both the grain and

the ninsb in hoppers so that none of

the feed will touch soil which might

be contaminated with disease.

Why We Say "O. K."

. It Is impossible to state definitely

how or by whom .the expression "O.

K." was originated. Some authorities

ascribe It to Aux Cayes (pronounced

o-kay) In Haiti, from which the beat

tobacco and rum were imported to

this country in Colonial days. The

name of that port was often written

as 0. K. and this came to algnlfy quality

In other goods besides tobacco and

rum. . /

Why "8" la Lucky

According to the Pythagorean philosophers,

"8" was the number of Justice

because It divides evenly. Aa the

first cube It was believed to be representative

of the corner atone and

hence plenty.

Why to "Unknow. God"

Several altars to "an unknown god"

were built In Athens. They ware

erected during a plague, since the

Athenians did not know what god was

offended and needed propitiation.

'9 a Hard Life

"How's everything with yon these

days?" asked the old friend.

"I'm having aa bard a time aa a

character In a comic strip, with no

artist in sight to eventually straighten

things out for me." sighed the

other one.

Why Brighter Btaifofe

Library workers have found that

Tittle-read books often become more

popular when dull-colored or soiled

covers are replaced with brighter bindings,

says Popular Mechanics Magazine.

A special cover, coated with a

material similar to a chemical finish

used on automobiles, has been introduced,

it is waterproof, finger-marks

and stains may easily be washed off,

and It can be Obtained in a wide variety

of colors and designs.

Why the Dollar Mark

Authorities differ as to the origin

of the dollar mark. In Notes and

Queries It Is stated that the Spanish

real was formerly current in the

Southern states, end that accounts In

that part of North America was kept

In dollars and reals. . As a distinguishing

mark in the books, a canceled

figure 8 was used, or sometimes

the 8 was put between two slanting

lines, thus—/S/. When the United

States adopted tne dollar aa the

money unit, it was found convenient

to continue the old mark. Another

origin traces the dollar mark to the

Mexican pillar dollar, on the reverse

pillars or columns connected by a

scroll. Another theory la that the

* JuttOrerthe

Fence ,


UITE often when Gwen Dnlton

stood In her mother's kitchen she

could see, o?er the back fence, Prof.

Wlnvllle Turned working In his garden.

The girl wished she knew the

young professor but realised there

was little chance.

One day came a remarkable letter

from an uncle In the West It told

of a homestead opportunity, deplored

the fact that Gwen was a girl Instead

of a boy, and concluded by suggesting

that She break away from "that hidebound"

city and take a try at renl

life. "I don't suppose for a minute

you will," Uncle Dick wrote, "but will

see that you are fixed up fine if I

get a wire saying you are coming."

Uncle Dick met her at a station on

the end of the prairie, drove her Into

the hills and established her In the

little cabin which must be her home

for fourteen months.

"Not so badr he said. "You stick

It out- and all this, most as far as

you can see, will be yours. It will

be worth fi lot some day."

It was lonesome at first, but Gwen

would not give In. She found the

neighboring women friendly, the fishing

streams Inviting and took great

Joy In riding to the foothills. Before

many months she had organized a

woman's club, was presiding over a

circle In home canning, and was a

member of another which was making

dress forms.

"The farther apart people live," she

said with the discovery, "the more

neighborly they are. I never knew what

It was to have so many friends." And

she thought of Professor Lamed, just

over the fence at home, and yet a figure

remote and 'unapproachable.

It was a little later the professor

arrived. He was writing a book on

geology and wished to devote a week

or two to study of formations near

the little prairie town.

"We will give a little party for the

stranger," she suggested.. "He comes

from the East and well make it real

Wild West, a costume affair."

She wanted to add a suggestion that

all combine to shake the professor

oat of his dignity and occupied air,

but that would be giving away the

secret that she knew him.

The friendliness of the .Western

town won Winvilie Larned. A man

could not be formal here and his

thawing, in some ways, was more remarkable

than that of the snow disappearing

before a Chinook. Wlnville

entered the spirit of the party,

dressed himself as a gambler out of

fiction, and was thoroughly at home.

Then entered Gwen, In red waist

and leather skirt, a dashing figure

from a poster of the cowgirl. She

would make bim stare and revel In

his astonishment to see a backyard

neighbor queen of a Wild West ball I

Wlnvllle stared, but he did not recognise

her. Even when he was introduced

in the Joyful manner of the

place be was no wiser. But he stayed

over three weeks and paid more attention

to the girl than he did to bis

book or the rock formations. Then

Gwen reached the end of her legal

residence and went borne. Exacting

a promise of secrecy she departed

with a promise to return. Wlnvllle,

discovering she was gone, was angry

that she had not told him of the plans.

"I had thought," he said, "we were

good friends. Surely, she acted as

if she thought so, too. I had intended

.. ." He shook his head. The

girl had been playing with him. Perhaps

it were better be go back to people

of his own kind.

Tanned and heavier, but aad at

heart, the young professor reached

home, unable to shake from bis mind

the thoughts of the cowgirl who had

jilted bim. lie wondered now If he

would be able to settle back in the

old rut Well, if he must he would

start with the garden. A few square

feet of spaded eurth to take the place

of rolling plains, a fence to stand for

a row of fool hi I la!

And over that fence bobbed the

head of a girl.

"Hello, neighbor," she called, "how's

everything on your ranch?"

Wlnvllle Lurned stared. He dropped

his hoe and gave hia whole attention

to staring.

"Gwen! Vou beret Where did you

come from?"

Walter Hagen Makes Declaration

at Hollywood Home.

Walter Hagen declared for representation

of foreign-born golf professionals

who have become citizens of

the United States on teams entering

national competition. He would have

the change become effective after this


Unpen, who will captain the Ryder

Cup team sailing for England April

10, made bis declaration In behalf of

the foreign-born pros at a dinner at

his Hollywood home In hono'r of eight

of the twelve native-born players who

have been nominated for this year's


Bagen 'said that foreign-born pro

fesslonala now living In the United

States who are naturalised citizens

feel Slighted, and that something

should be done to place them on an

equality with native sons.

"The biggest objection to selected

foreign-born professionals," said Hagen,

"originated not in America,'but

In Great Britain, where. It la impossible

for us to win any recognition

for American golf except with, nativeborn

players. If one of our foreignborn

players wins In Europe, America

Is not credited with this win, even If

the particular player removed from the

old country when one day old.

"Two years ago In Worcester we defeated

the British with a team of

homebreda and this year we are going

to Europe with a team of 100 per cent

homehreds. I think to these two

matches, one In the United States and

one In Europe, that we can demonstrate

sufficiently the strength of our

native-born professional golf and that

In the future we should look at the situation

from a broader angle and give

our foreign-born players who have become

citizens an opportunity to win a

place on our professional team.

"There Is a certain prestige which

goes with membership and citizens of

the United States, native or foreignborn,

should be entitled to equal opportunity.

"There la no discrimination In time

of war when the foreign-born citizens*

fight as quickly as the native born.

There should be no discrimination in

sport We can stand being told in any

foreign country that we have won. If

we do win, with some of their men,

if they persist in taking this view, .far

better than we can stand the thought

that the boya who come over here and

become citizens are not getting an

even break."

Hagen pointed out that the international

matches were, after all, only a

gamp and that the winning or losing

of them did not make much difference,

so long BB the United States was represented

by a team of players who

conducted themselves In such a manner

as to be a credit to America and

the sport

He Intimated that while hia team

would, of course, do the best it could

to win, that If Great Britain were to

come out on top, it would not be a

bad thing for the International game

of golf.

"There must be," said Hagen, "something

like equality in International

competition If the keenness Is to survive."

Yankee Players to Wear

Numbers Coming Season

Babe Both and the other Yankee

baseball players will wear numbers

on their uniforms next season. This

innovation was decided upon by Col.

Jacob Buppeit, president and Edward

S. Barrow, business manager of the

world'a champions. The home run

king will be "No. 8.'"

Now that the Yankees have gone in

for nombering their players, other big

league clubs probably will follow suit

College and pro footballers have worn

numbers for years and so have pro

hockey players.

The experiment in baseball will not

be new. Five years ago Branch

Kickey, then manager of the St Louis

Cardinals, had numbers sewn on the

sleeves of his players' uniforms. But

the figures were small and on the

gray traveling uniforms did not stand

out clearly and Bickey discarded

them after two years. The Yankees'

numerals will be larger than those the

Cardinals sported.

Millikan Machine Picks

Out of Last Barrel.


Pasadena, Ca I It--When one of Dr.

Robert A. Hllllkan'a electroscopes, developed

In connection with Ms cosmic

ray experiments, was enlisted as a

detective, a problem as difficult at

"looking for a needle In a haystack'*

was aolved. within two hours.

, Through the use of the delicate In-

BtAiment $4,000 worth of radium which

waa accidentally thrown out with

some ashes at the Pasadena hospital

waa recovered.

John Ransom, California Institute

of Technology technician, waa sent to

the hospital with one of the cosmic

ray machines and, after barrel after

barrel of aahea had been brought in

front of the electroscope the instrument

indicated that radium waa present

in the last barrel

While hospital officials anxiously

watched the proceedings in the basement

of the institution the barrel containing

the capsule fined with.fifty

milligrams of the most precious substance

In the world waa emptied into

email boxes. It was only when the observers

were about to give up hope

that the brass tube* about the size of 1

a match-end, waa discovered hi the

last box.

The electroscope, it waa stated, pick*

np the radium emanations, being so

sensitive that It can record them

from a radlolite watch. Two quarta

fibers that are suspended almost together

are charged with electricity,

which repels them. When the libera

are exposed to radium, which absorbs

electricity from the air, they are

brought together, the speed with

which they approach each other In*

dlcatlng the amount of radium In the

vicinity. No matter how minute the

radium particles, the Instrument Is

said to be capable of detecting them

at a distance of 100 feet

The radium which waa recovered is

the property of Dr. Paul Ferrler, and

la one of the two largest supplies of

the precious substance In this city.

"I always said that girl would make

Brooms have been used for years to

put out. dirt. Recently Forest Service

officers proved them useful In 'putting

out fire. On a bunch grass fire, rakes

are a poor fire tool because they catch

on the clumps and allow ashes to run

through the teeth. On a recent bunch

grass fire on the Carson National Forest

in New Mexico, one man with a

broom was said to be worth three with

other tools. A fire fighter with a wet

broom could knock the fire down and

sweep back the necessary ashes almost

as fast as he could walk.

Wfcr Pabit Clings to

the Surface of Wood

Laboratory authorities claim there

la good reason for believing paint does

not really adhere to wood, at least

after the paint has dried ont thoroughly,

but that It hangs on chiefly

[by gaining mechanical grips In minute

openings In the surface of the wood.

The degree of "paintabillty" of oer-

, tain woods depends upon whether the

ppeings are few or numerous, small or

large. The effect of wood grain on

.paint tenacity is noticeable on wood

| having wide annual growth rings and

i In which there Is a sharp contrast be-

J tween spring wood and summer wood.

I The • summer wood is much denser

than the spring wood, so that paint

scales off the former more quickly.

The laboratory report states that if

some way were found to make paint

adhere better to wood, the durability

of paint on all woods would likely

be improved and that the differences

In their painting characteristics woujd

i largely disappear.

The largest dance crowd ever to pack;

a hall In the County Seat attended

Jerry's All Star baseball benefit dance)

last Friday night. The floor space which

can only accommodate about half that

number was so crowded that clever

dodging on the part, of customers kept

the casualties at a low figure. However,

all those present resigned themselves

to the fate of a subway crowd at rush

hour and smiled their way through to

the end.

The music manufactured by the Cleft

Club Co.. an eight piece Jazz band of

colored music masters, held the uncomfortable

crowd in good spirits and

when Manager Jerry announced that

he would arrange to bring Al Jolson's

big boys back, the spectators applauded

for more music.

Refreshments were served in the

basement and every morsel was consumed.

The total receipts were set at

over $600 and the net profit $300.

In order to make room for a 1,000

dancers Jerry has 'llied the Penlow

Park dance hall on -no Carmd-Peekskill

road where he will hold his next

big dance April 26. The Cleft Club will

place 10 pieces of ja:v. music in the

hall and Jerry is sure Unit's enough

to bun. the place uj: with led hot

music. Tiie hall can comfortably handle

1500 with checking for every hat

and coat, and the dance floor is so arranged

tiiat no stags can get on the

floor to fill up valuable dance space

while booking.

son of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Wells, was

operated upon by Dr. John M. Wheeler,

of 30 West 59th St., New York City,

for the straightening of the right eye.

The operation took place in the Harkness

Pavilion of the Presbyterian Hospital

at 168th St., and Fort Washington

night and day, Crosby

became comfortable and Is now calling

on his fellow patients of Floor 8. Next

week he will no doubt come home.

Charles Tilljander while enroute to

Vanderburgh's office, where an examination

proved that he was not fatally

Injured as was erroneously reported.

However, Mr. Tilljander has been

confined to his bed. He was severely

shaken up and badly bruised about the

head and on his left side. Mr. Tilljander

Is one of the oldest members In

More Meat

For Brewster

The opening date of SimoneUi's new

meat market at 53 Main St. is at hand.

Everyone is cordially Invited to inaijoct

this highly up-to-date establishment

to-day and to-morrow.

A page ad appearing in this issue on

page 2 will give you an appetite tho

you may be a atria vegeuriin. If

you are a health critic the interior of

store, cases and ice box will give you

sufficient cause to dash madly to the

Nei York State Health Dept. and tell

thezn you have found the answer to

a sanitary prayer.

As you walk in you immediately get

the impression of an operating room in

the Jehu's Hopkins Hospital. Every

clerk is dressed in a white, meat operating

smock and everything is white except

the. meat. The amputatort. are

cordial and if possible would perform

the trick of cutting the bone out ol a

nice calf's liver in older to get your

business. Yes and if you call for a spscl-

*J tut of steak right out of the mid sec

tion of the best beef on the opening

day you'll probably get it with ten

pounds of suet thrown in.

To leave all joking aside it sure is

a market that any town can well feel

Dame Fashion


By Grace Jewett Auttin

Jnst the other day a half doren

young girls came In to tee Dame

Fashion, and they

had ao many new

Ideas In their talk

abont styles that

they seem worth


Lucy says, Tve

just heard about

the most beautiful

'formats.' They are

made of printed

chiffon, with

massed groups of

flowers on a white

/Grace J. Austin, ground having flt^

ted . hips and floating panels—and!

they are to be worn over a slip of

shining black satin. Now Isn't that

a Frenchy touch?"

Helen continues, "My mind Is firmly

set to hdve one of the lovely landscape

gowns for my Easter Sunday

dress on the thirty-first of March.!

I know they have been used for a j

summer or two, but they are to attractive

that people seem to feel sure

they will keep going, at least for!

a year or two. I saw two such per-1

feet ones lately. One wns a Venice

gown, all gondolas and lagoons, while

the other • was California, with a j

springlike gayety to It that would

cheer up a March bllzwird."

Margaret declares, "My mother

says that when we were little bits

of girls we nsed to wear 'gulmpes'.

Some people pronounced the word

'gimps,' and for awhile when I heard

of the 'Gumps' It made me think of

little soft collar-like things. With

these yon can have lace collar effects

with your suits and frocks and

never a bit of sewlng-in to do. So

they say there Is quite a gulmpe-revivaL"

Louise puts'In, "I was glad to bear

that there will be more leather heels

used on shoes this summer. That

suits me wonderfully, for I'm always

having sad things happen to my wood'

en heels covered ,wlth leather or cloth.

Indeed, I'm pretty lucky if I don't

have them pulled off a time or two

before the shoes wear out"

Eunice has quite an up-to-date con

trlbutlon: "Have you beard of the

above-elbow bracelets to be worn

with short sleeved frocks next summer?

Some will wear quite a wide

silver band,' decorated with colored

enamels and costume jewels."

Virginia bad the closing contribution

from the group: "The funniest

'ensemble' touch Tve heard is that

If you carry a dog, you must carefully

your coat has a collar of beige fox I"

Speaking of that favorite word, ensembles,

which a fashion talk in these

days could hardly be found any more

than a radio evening without Its passages

of jazz, some authorities are

declaring not only in favor of the use

of brilliant colors—but also, of three

of them! Tills is the famed new

••tri-color mode"—not indeed the patriotic

three of the French tricolor,

•and the red, white and blue of the

Star Spangled Banner.

It Is prophesied for next summer

that everything with a hint or pronounced

effect of gold will be good.

This will allow a wide range of

shades, with enough to allow each

woman at least one that will be becoming.

It will include all of the

beiges, lemon yellow, the creams and

vanilla, maize and on up to genuine


Some of those groupings offered for

the tricolor costumes are white, Florida

yellow and chestnut; black, white

and chanel red, with finally, corn color,

lobster and summer leaf That

last sounds almost like a wedding salad

and is certainly "good enough to



A Feminine




•slIZ HAT do you think of your

*" chances?"

"Well, Mr. Cutler, I hardly know.

If I can carry the Ninth I'll be all


"Charlie, that's a big contract r

The man addressed aa Charlie

looked gloomily at the fire. Be was

a young man.

"Charlie," continued Mr. Cutler

thoughtfully, Tve set my heart on

having you elected district attorney.

It's a post thai heeds Just such a

man aa yon are to fill It; but the

people aren't awake.. Election's only

two weeks off, and they still cling

to their old traditions. Particularly

In the Ninth. It looks bad."

Charles Livingston nodded gloomily.

Ills whole ambition centered

around his election to the coveted

post which he sought, and not only

his ambition but hla heart's desire

waa Involved. For Phyllis Cutler,

the daughter of the man who was

now speaking In tones of discouragement,

filled his heart as his political

ambition did his mind. Be loved

her, and waa aware that she returned

the sentiment; but there waa no use

speaking to her stern father unless

he could point to a strong position

honorably won. Be must win that

election! And yet without the all-Important

Ninth ward—the social 'center

of the city—he waa helpless

The two men sat In silence. Then

Livingston rose and bade the colonel

good night. Aa he was passing out

through the entrance hall he heard

a light step behind him.

"Charlie 1"

-Yes, Phyir

"Charlie, I heard all that you and

daddy said. la It ao Important to

carry the Ninth wardf*

"It's vital, dear, and If It Isn't done

I won't be elected, and I can't ask

your father for the thing I want so


The girl In the dim hallway kissed

him. "Don't be discouraged, dear.

If daddy won't have you unless

you're district, attorney, why we'll

Just have to make you district attorney,

that'a all."

"But, Phyl"—he smiled, in spite of

his discouragement, at her impulsiveness—"I

can't get any Influence In

the Ninth. The machine has prevented

your father—the only one I know

in that ward—from using bis Influence,

lie's helpless, and so am I."

"Charlie, dear, don't be discouraged.

It'll all come right—Just you


But aa election time approached

Charles Livingston was forced to

confess to himself that all was coming

far from right There would be

Just enough against blm to swing the

election to his opponent Be went

through the work preceding the momentous

day mechanically, and when

election day came around he set himself

to watch the returns with stoical


Be was in his office at 9 that night,

having eaten nothing since breakfast

Bis faithful secretary and a few

friends were wipi him. Most of the

returns were in. and the results

showed what everybody knew—that

the Ninth would swing the balance

one way or the other. His secretary

turned to answer the telephone.

"Here comes the Ninth, chief 1" he

cried in a shaking voice.

"And here goes our chance," replied

Livingston. But even as the

I words were on bis lips, the secretary

uttered a cry of triumph.

"Chief I Chief 1 You carried the

1 Ninth by 1,8001 We win I We winl"

Very late that night when the last

' well-wisher had retired and the last

rocket bad sputtered and died, Liv

lngston went into the room where he

bad before consulted with Colonel

Cutler. Be had come to the Cutler

house to receive his friends, as the

colonel had invited him, for his own

office waa too small. Now that his

battle was over he wanted bis reward,

"Well, my boy. I don't see any

objection if Phyllis doesn't" said the

colonel, "You won your victory and

you deserve her. To tell you the

truth. I didn't think you'd do it. for

the Ninth seemed dead against us.

1 couldn't stir to help you. I'd give

something to know what swung it

your way."

Into the room there burst Phyllis

—a laughing, happy Phyllis.

"Oh, daddy, I was listening again.

I'm so glad you want Churlle as

much a is I do. And I'm so happy 1

And listen." She drew the two men

confidentially to her. "I carried ih«-

Ninth myself,"

"What?" Colonel Cutler could.bard

Welding of Steel Girder* It

Liked by Builders

The welding process as applied to

the construction of buildings has'

many advantages. It not only eliminates

the noisy rat-tat-tat of the riveter,

always a source of disturbance

to the surrounding district but Is said

to be cheaper, quicker and more reliable.

One electric welding outfit can

do the work of four men using the

riveting-gun method.

Fewer tools are required and no

rivets are used In the welding process,

both items representing another saving.

The only tool nsed In the process

Is a.welding machine.

Before' actually welding together

two girders they are first bolted together

in order to fix them, in a secure

and accurate position. This is

done usually by means of angle Iron

supports and clamping plates.

With the girders In position, the

welder is started. Steel la fused with

steel and becomes a solid mass which

hardens almost Instantly, after which

the bolts and angle Irons are removed.

Careful tests have shown that welded

girders will stand up better than those

rnrrnthor . '

Why Overhand Throw

The reasons that soldiers were

drilled to throw their hand grenades

In a stiff overhand manner were that

more distance could be gained In that

way, and the muscles of the' upper

arm receive less -strain than they

would have otherwise.

Why Wood PetrliM .

Petrification of wood through the

replacement of the wood tissues by]

silica or other minerals occurs only

after long burial under favorable conditions.

Water charged with dissolved

minerals Infiltrates through

the wood and particle by particle

takes the'place of the organic matter.

This does not occur within a'

short period, nor does It occur while

the wood Is exposed to the atmosphere.

The belief that standing fence

posts sometimes petrify evidently

arose from the fact that fossil or

petrified wood Is often used for posts.

Many persons who see these posts of

petrified wood mistakenly suppose that

they petrify after being set Slabs of

limestone are used for fence posts In

many states. In Kansas there Is a

layer of limestone so well adapted to

such use that It is locally known as 1

"Conca nost limestone."

Bankers Association President Gives the Five Essentials of

Sound Thinking, in Business—Greater Opportunity

Than Ever Before for Young People With

Educational Training and Power

to Analyze Problems.


President American Bankers Association

ONLY half a century ago Michael Pupin, a shepherd boy*

guarded his flocks by night among the fields of Serbia.

Thieves often lurked in the bordering cornfields awaiting an opportunity

to make off with a part of the

— IB i herd. Serbian boys were taught a method

of signalling one another for warning and

help. Each carried a knife with a long

wooden handle which he would thrust deep

into the ground and in case cattle thieves

approached he would strike the wooden

handle. The sound would be transmitted

through the ground to other boys some distance

away who could hear and interpret

the message.

"Why is it," Pupin asked his mother,

/'that we can signal this way?


x Why is it the

sound can be heard through the ground,

but not through the air? Why is it the signals

can be heard in the pasture land so

much better than in the plowed fields?"

The boy's mother could not answer his questions,

nor could the village teacher. However,

having an eager mind and great determination,

the boy decided to go to America, where he might

win an education and find out the answers to these and other

perplexing questions. Hundreds of other boys under the same

circumstances and with the same set

Lesson for March 17


LiBSSON TEXT—ExofluB 10:1-11}

Matthsw 12:1-8.

GOLDEN TEXT—For the Bon Ot man

Is Lord even ot the Sabbath Day.

PRIMARY TOPIC—God's Day, Sunday.

JUNIOR TOPIC—Ood-» Das, Bandar.


IC—Keeping the Lord's Day.


IC—The Lord's Day In Modern life.

The designation "Christian's Sabbath"

Is a misnomer. The word "Sabbath"

has a definite meaning. It signifies

rest, cessation from action.

When God had finished the heavens

and. earth, He desisted from creative

action (Gen. 2:1-8). Since God's creative

work was completed In fix days.

He ceased from action on the seventh

day, which was therefore called the

Sabbath, or Rest Hay. Five definite

objects may be assigned to the Sabbath:

1. To commemorate the work of

creation (Gen. 2:3. cf. Ex. 20:11).

2. To keep alive the knowledge of

the true God. Creation witnesses of

a creator. Keeping the Sabbath In

mind kept In mind the creation, and

the creation made real the Creator.

8. A forward.look to the time when

man shall enjoy full fellowship with

God (Heb. 4:1-10).

4. To Israel It was a sign of the

covenant between them and God

(Deut. 5:12-15)..

5. It was made for man's well-being

(Mark 2:27).

At least while man's earthly condition

continues, the Sabbath is needed

to keep a proper balance between his

body and his soul.

I. The Fourth Commandment (Bx.


1. Obligations enjoined (20:0, 10).

(1) Work through six days (v. 0).

The command to work six daya Is

just as binding as the command to

rest the seventh day. In fact, there

can he no rest unless there first be


(2) Beat on the seventh day (v. 10).

There must be cessation from all

work on the Sabbath. Since God gave

the example and then sanctified the

day. It should -be kept holy. It was

not only to give relief to the physical

body but to be a time when man's

thought would be turned to God. It

waa designed to keep fresh In his

mind the consciousness of'God and

His mercies. The human spirit should

be refreshed by the study of God's


2. Bow this commandment may be


(1) By engaging la labor or pursuing

business interests on this sacred


(2) By devoting it to amusements,

since it was designed to keep fresh

In mind the consciousness of God.

(8) By making It a day of feasting.

II. The Son of Man Is Lord of the

Sabbath (Matt. 12:1-8).

L The hungry disciples plucking

corn (v. 1).

This took place on the Sabbath day

and became the occasion for criticism.

2. The Pharisees finding fault (v. 2).

They asserted that Christ's disciples

were breaking the law, when In reality

they were only violating the traditions

with which the law was encumbered.

The Lord's purpose in Instituting

the Sab ha Ui was to conserve man's

highest interest and contribute to bis

happiness. It is extremely unfortunate

when human tradition la elevated

above the Word of God.

8. Christ's reply to the cavils of the

Pharisees (v. 8-8).

In this reply He shrewdly answered

the Pharisees and pressed His transcendent

claim as to the dignity of

His person. This claim moved them

to plot Ills death. As to His claim,


(1) He Is greater than their greatest

king (v. 8. 4). David, when rejected,

was forced to do that which

was unlawful for him (I Sum. 1).

Because they had rejected the one

greater than David, the plucking of

the ears of corn became a necessity.

(2) He is greater than their sacrifice

and priesthood (v. 5). If the

priests, because of their position and

services, could violate the Sabbath

laws and be blameless, much more the

One greater than they in performing

His work of sacrifice and redemption

for them should be considered guiltless.

He was the true sacrifice and


(3) lie is greater than the temple

(v. 6). The temple, with oil its gorgeous

rites and ceremonies, was typical

of Christ Much more then did

He have the right to do what lie did.

(4) He is greater than the Subbn'tb

(v. 8). because lie is Lord of the Sab-
