him in his recent speech in the House
In the course of the statements, Mr.
Lloyd George said:
"The fate of Upper Silesia must be
decided by the Supreme Council and
not by Korfanty."
"Great Britain cannot consent to
stand by while the treaty her repre
sentatives signed less than two years
ago is being trampled upon."
"With all respect, I would say to
the French press that the habit of
treating every expression of Allied
opinion which does not coincide with
their own as an impertinence is
fraught with mischief. That attitude
of mind, if persisted in, will be fatal
to any Entente."

SEEMINGLY 'TWAS EVER THUS
Example of Eternal Triangle Will
Soon Be Presented to Another
Judge and Jury.
Not so very iong ago there lived to
gether in Indiah.apolis a certain man
and woman. They were well past
middle age, and their children were
reared and gone. One evening the
man of the family nervously marked
the passing of time. Sad suspicion 1
gripped the heart of the woman. The
husband explained that he would have
to be away from home that evening
on business. The wife explained that
she did not wish to stay at home alone,
and would go to a neighbor's home.
She left the house first. But she did
not go to the neighbor's home. Instead
she slipped into the rear seat of the
curtained darkness of her husband's
automobile, and covered herself 'with
a robe. After a while he came out
of the house and drove away. He
drove to another house in the city and
drew up in front. He left the car and
entered the 'ouse. The wife also left
the car an4 took a position in the
shadows nearby. After a few minutes'
wait the man came out of the house
with another woman on his arm. The
I ternal triangle was completed, and
the same old thing happened. New

New Smoke-Burning Device.
A new water-cooled baffle-plate de
vice for installation In th-e firebox of
a conventional up-draft furnace has
the effect of converting it into one
having some of the characteristics of
the down-draft type. It is described
in Populdr Mechanics. Its construc
tion is simple, consisting of two hol
low steel compartments of different
heights, arranged crosswise of the
irebox, at a point somewhat to the
rear of the center, with the higher
one at the back, thus dividing the fire
box into two distinct combustion
zones. As the two chambers are sep
arated by a few inches and the higher
one reaches to the boiler by the
crowsheet, the gases and smoke lib
erated by the forward portion of the
ire are forced to pass over the top
of the low forward section, down be -
tween it and the rear section, under
the latter, and over the hottest part
of the fire, where they are consumed.
Esperanto a School Course.
