WORLD'S LARGEST BAKERY.
The largest bakery In the world 1*
located in Essen, Prussia, the home
.f the great Krupp gun factory. It is
a vast building in which 70 workmen,
divided into two shifts, work night
and day. Everything is done by ma
chinery. A screw torna unceasingly
a kneading trough, into which are
poured some water cud ten sacks of
flour of 200 pounds each. This ma
chine makes about 40,000 pounds Of
bread each day in the shape of 25,000
small loaves and 25,000 large loaves,
produced by 230 sacks of flour of 200
pounds each. All the operations of
breadmaklng are performed in this
jolossal bakery. The wheat arrives
there, is cleaned, ground, and brought
automatically to the kneading trough
by a series of rising and descending
pipes. There are 36 double ovens,
and the workmen who watch over the
baking of the bread earn from 8 to 10
cents an hour, making an average cf
90 cents a day for ll hours on duty.
They have coffee and bread free, also
the use of a bathroom, for they are
required to keep themselves spot
lessly clean, and must wash their
hands eight times a day.
TOWN WITH NO TAXE8.
In Sweden there is a town named
Orson. They have a street railway
system there, but it costs the inhabit?
ants nothing to ride. They pay he
taxes. They have free libraries and
free schools. Orson ls a very happy
and contented community, and all be
cause a generation or two ago the mu
nicipal authorities planted a forest for
the benefit of the town. That forest
is intelligently conserved and wiH
doubtless be earning money when rJl
of the present Inhabitants are dead
and gone, and when their grandchil
dren are no more. Conservation is
not a new thing except in this coun
try. No man nor any nation is so rich
that he or it can afford to be prodi
gal of wealth. We may not be able
to support this government by means
of national forests, but it is evident
that unless we take some measures to
prevent deforestation, we are going to
be in a miserable plight before another
century is past.
GROWING TEA FOR EMPEROR.
It has been asserted that an ordi
nary tea drinker would not recognize
tho beverage If given a cup brewed
from the leaves that afford solace to
the imperial family of China, cer
tainly If extraordinary care can
change the flavor of a thing the im
perial tea must be at least, different.
All tea intended for use by the im
perial household ls raised in a gar
den surrounded by a high stone wall,
so that no unauthorized person can
approach the plants. Only the ten
derest buds are gathered, and the
persons who collect these leaves must
abstain from eating fish, that the
delicate aroma of the te., .nay not be
affected. Furthermore, the pickers
must bathe three times each day, and
wear costumes especially provided, as
well as gloves.
THE BICYCLE IN ENGLAND.
It is believed that the largest em
ployer in the world of the bicycle is
the British postmaster-general. He
has in his department at present Hr
400 of them, about one-half of which
are used by the rural-delivery car
riers. Each bicycle averages 10,000
miles of travel a year, making more
than 110,000,000 miles in the aggre
gate, or 17,000,000 miles farther than
the distance from the earth to the
sun. Tl life of the post office bicy
cle ave "ge. four and a half yean
and that of a tire about nine months.
Except for improvements in brakes,
change speed gears and other details,
the design of the bicycle has re
mained unaltered for ten years.
THE RUSSIAN GIANT. ~
Since its defeat by Japan, Russia
has not affected the imagination of
the world with quite the sense cf hid
den power that it conveyed before,
but those who study its recent statis
tics find that it is the same giant
still. In the last thirteen years the
population of the .mpire has in
created by 33.000.Oi which is 3,000,
000 more than the United States has
gained in 20 years. The census of
1909 gives the empire, including Si
beria, 160,100,000 inhabitants, of |
whom 116,500,000 dwell In European
Russia. Its agricultural progress is
not less remarkable.
TOYS OF LONG AGO.
In the nursery of a newly-excavat
ed house at Behnesia, Egypt, a fairly
well preserved rag do.'l was found
with arms and legs still intact, and
painted face. The doll ls by no means
a beauty, and does not compare with
the dollr of today, but, nevertheless.
It must have brought Joy to a little
girl's heart nearly 2,000 years ago.
The Jointed dolls of long ago were
made to sit down, stand up, and move
their arms, but they didn't close their
eyes or squeak "mamma." Among*,
the toy dogs, horses and donkeys are
some made of stone and baked day,
and others carved out of wood.
Fortunes have been sunk in corona-1
