The Rokeby Yenus, the beautiful
painting in the British National gal
lery which was slashed by a militant
suffragist, has been so deftly repaired
that the damage done cannot be de
tected by the ordinary observer. As
a concession to properly accredited
art students the gallery, which was
closed to the public after the outrage,
has been reopened to them.
Trying to Do Too Much.
Many business men are coming to
H the conclusion that they would accom
plish more if they attempted less. Life
is becoming overcrowded. A succes
sion of little things fill the time thai
could more wisely be used for the con
templation of great tasks and the con
templation of lofty purposes. To sim
plify is to strengthen. Life Is more
than a mt>re round of engagements; it
is a conscious enjoyment and employ
ment of the spirit's highest capacities
Starvation in Japan.
Failure of the rice crop and the
fishing industry have brought the dis
tricts of Tohoku and Hokkaido, north
ern Japan, one of the worst famines
that the country has faced in a hun
dred years. Cold weather prevented
the rice from heading out, and unusu
ally cold currents have kept the fish
at great distances from the shore.
A conservative estimate places the
number who are now in urgent need
of food at 200,000.
April Fool Day.
There are all sorts of theories as
to the origin of the merry anniversary,
Dut tne most piausiDie is me one
which gives the custom its use in
France, about 1564. France was the
first European country to adopt the
reformed calendar, and as a result the
New Year day was carried back to
January 1, and mock calls were made
on April 1, as a joke on such as had
forgotten the change in the calendar.

Ruskln on Traveling.
To any person who haB all his senses
about him, a quiet walk, over not
more than ten or twelve miles of road
a day, is the most amusing of all trav

in exact proportion to its rapidity. Go

Recognize Laws of "Chance."
The laws of "chance," or the theory
of probabilities, have been adopted by
the men of science. Until recently
the only persons who bothered their
heads about the problems that arise
in calculating probabilities were gam

Now the student of physics is obliged
to understand them and use them con
When Vapor Is Dry.
It is a popular misconception that
aqueous vapor and ice are wet. They
are in themselves dry, and become
wet only when they turn to water. "So
dry is aqueous vapor that it will dry

tact with," states an eminent author
ity, Mr. M. Mott-Smith. Superheated

Wu Ting Fang 6ri Amftrleart Children,
The youth of America have not un
naturally caught the spirit of their eid
ers, so that even children consider
themselves almost on a par with their
parents, while the parents, on the
other hand, also treat them as if they
were equals, and allow them the ut
most freedom, writes Wu Ting Fang
In Harper's Magazine. While a Chi
nese child renders unquestioning
obedience to his parents' orders, such
obedience as a soldier yields to his
superior officer, the American child
must have the whys and the where
fores duly- explained to' him, and the
reason for his obedience made clear.
It is not his parent that he obeys, Out
expediency and the dictates of reason.
Studies Garbage System.
Mrs. Flora Spiegelberg of Riverside,
New York, has begun a campaign for
the dustless and sanitary collection of
ashes and garbage. She has complete
data of the methods, of handling ashes
and garbage in 150 cities in Germany,
where the work is so well done that
neither the ashes nor the garbage are
exposed to the air from the time they
leave the basement of the house un
til they reach the incinerating plant.
She says the present system in New
York is simply terrible. ShJ says that
