Bird Hunter Finds
PHILADELPHIA. July 10 (Associ

sistant curator of the ornithology sec
tion of the Academy of Natural
Sciences, returned recently to this
city from hitherto little knoVn regions
of Nicaragua where he assembled a
large collection of birds, beasts, fish
and reptiles, a number of which he
believes have not yet been classified.
He also claims to have penetrated to
the villages of Sumo Indians who rare
ly had seen a white man. The scien
tists' specimens include Goo birds. 40

In this old Scotch dancing game,
the players choose partners. Each ties
a bandage around the eyes of his or
her partner. When all are blindfold
ed except the leader, they join hands
in a circle and dance around in slid
ing steps, singing to the air of Auld
i Lang Syne.
We're blind because we're blind be
We're blind because we're blind etc.
When the leader calls "Halt!" all
stand still. At the signal "Join
hands!" each player puts his right
hand behind his back, taking the left
hand of his partner. When the lead
er calls "Curcuddie!" the first couple
turn, still retaining their hold, so that
they face each other. This move

are clapping hands and singing, still
to the tune of Auld Syne: "We spin

No. 4 Curtain Materials
A room without curtains is like a
face with the eyebrows shaved off.
No one item in the furnishing of a
room counts for more in the general
effect than the curtains. It is not
necessary that they should be expen
sive or elaborate. It is preferable,
indeed, that they Bhould be simple
but well chosen.
The purpose of curtains is not to
exclude the light, but to temper and
diffuse it, also by their graceful folds
to soften the lines of the window.
With these objects in mind, choose
simple materials thin enough to let
m plenty of light, but with body
enough to hang well. As there will
probably be more of less pattern els
where in the room, it is generally pre
ferable to have plain curtain material
without pattern. Fine stripes, dots
and such inconspicuous features,
however, are quite permissible.

Janet did as he told her. "Bang!"
shouted Jack, and he let. fly with a
snowball. The ball sped right for
Blackie Crow. Blackie looked up
started. And just as he looked up
the snowball hit him in the breast.
Over went Blackie, kicking and
squawking. The Crows thought that
was the last of him. "Bang," shouted
Jack again, and he threw another
snowball. Over flopped another Crow.
The Crows saw the black stick and
thought it was a gun. Cawing and
screeching, they fled in a panic.
N.o sooner were the Crows gone
than the Robins and Blue Birds be
gan to flock into the thickest. And
as they arrived the blizzard came
sweeping from the North, snowy
squall riding on a gale.
"Oh, Judge Owl, you have fooled
us," screeched the birds. "Oh, Judge
Owl, you sent us a false message.
You have brought us North to perish
in a blizzard!" Judge Owl blinked at
them much worried.
"You are a wise Weather Man,"
said Cocky Robin. "Tell us how to
live through this blizzard."
Judge Owl blinked at the Robins;
he blinked at the Blue Birds; he

he blinked at Jack and Janet his face
"Who! Who! What do you do in a
blizzard?" he hooted.
"Why, we stay indoors by the fire,"
"Then take these Robins and Blue
Birds in by the fire with you," said
Judge Owl. "You wanted them to
come back from the South in a hurry
and here they are. Be good to them
and I'll bring spring as soon as I
can." And what did Judge Owl do but
pop back into his snug house and shut
the door. He had loaded all his
troubles on Jack and Janet.
Jack and Janet thought fast. Their
homes were not large enough for all
those birds. Then Jack got an idea.
"Hurrah!" he shouted. "I know the
very place. Our school has a snug
attic. There is a hole in the window
by which you can creep in. There
you will be nice and cozy until Old
Man Winter goes back North and
Spring comes from the South. And
every day we school children will

And that is just what was done.

Friction consumes power and develops heat and wear.
Sometimes friction is utilized. In the automobile the
friction of the clutch transmits the power of the engine
to the rear or driving wheels, the friction of the tires and
the road surface propels the machine, and the friction of
the brakes stops the car. Friction should be confined to
the parts named (the clutch, the tires and the brakes), if
Lubricating oil used in the automobile to prevent friction
between all moving parts in direct contact has friction
within itself. This friction has to be overcome by and
uses up engine power. The heavier the oil the more its
internal friction, the less power it leaves for useful work.
Increasing Power, Speed and Cjasoline
It may be proved that as much as 20 of the power at
the driving wheels may be lost through the use of an
The ideal oil is t he thinnest oil which will keep the bear
ing surfaces separated and at the same time offer in it

In addition, this oil must have stability to resist engine

Zerolene meets the conditions perfectly. Made from se
lected crudes by our own patented high-vacuum process,
it has great "oiliness," which causes it to cling to bear
