Steel Has Great Cutting Power.
"High-speed steel" for cutting tools
has been 'well known for years' and
an improve6 form of this material has
been introduced in Sheffield, Engled'.
It is reported that this steel has :
times the cutting power of any other
in use. The composition is, It ap
pears, still a secret, but it is said to
be the first "high-speed steel" that
can be hardened In cold water with
out danger. It can also be hardened
with oil or In a cold blast.I
Tools made of it wear out much
less rapidly and require much less:
grinding than those of the older
kinds of steel. They will also go on
working at high temperature longer.
But the makers themselves say that
this steel does not by any means
mark the final development of "high
speed steel."-Washin~gtonl Star.
Help Austrian Children.
Danish joint committees for help to
war devastated countries report that
in 1921 Denmark entertained 5,584
children from Austria for several
months, and that since September,
1919, Denmark has cared for 16,455
Austrian children and 5,428 German
children. Furthermore, 120 German
little ones needing special care were
nursed in a special camp. Gifts of
hospital equipment were sent to
AustrIa and Germany, and 40,000
francs was spent supporting a
children's home near Rheims. Food
and clothing to the value of 70,000
Danish crowns were sent to Germany
and Austria and financial assistance
for children amounmting to 25,000
crowns was sent to Belgium, 33,775 to
Poland, and 34,500 to France..
Strike Not New Weapon.
That strikes are not of recent origin,
but that they have, for many centuries,
troubled the employer of labor, is said
to be interestingly established by a
record recently discovered in certain
ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic tablets.
These tablets were found in the exca
vation of some ruins at Thebes, and
cast a strong light upon the labor con
ditions of the city 3,000 years ago. De
tails are given of many interesting
phases of a strike when a large num
ber of workmen notified their employ

"Don't you sometimes lose faith In
"Never," replied Senator Sorghum.
"You can always depend on human
nature for generous acti'ons and un
prejudiced opinions. That refers, of
course, to genuine human nature.,
which isn't always so easy to find. A
good many people feel that they have
to depend on human artifice and dis
simulation. Human nature, my fr!r.
is al? right. What makes the trouble
