h?f? F?? WOMEN OF FIFTY
Time Whenv She Should Be Philco
sophical and Prepared for Wise
There are people today asking with
all aprearance of sincerity what a
woman of fifty or more can do. Their
confining work in the home, say these
observers, is done. A common sugges
tion is that they be utilized in poli
tics. This suggestion has its comical
side, Miss Tarbell declares. A per
son who has nothing to do after fifty
years of life in a business "as many
sided and demanding as that of a
woman can hardly be expected to be
worth much in a business as com
plicated and uncertain as politics and
for which she had had no training.
The notion that the woman's business
ls ended at fifty or sixty ls fantastic
in the extreme. It only ends there if
she has been blind to the meaning of
her own experiences; If she has never
gone below the surface of her task
never seen in it anything but physical
duties; has sensed none of its Inti
mate relations to the community, none
of Its obligations toward those who
have left her, none of those toward,
the oncoming generations. If it ends
there she has failed to realize, too,
the tremendous importance to all
those who belong in her circle or who
touch it of what she makes of herself,
or her personal achievement
A woman of fifty or sixty who has
succeeded has come to a point of
sound philosophy and serenity which
is of the utmost value in the mental
and spiritual development of the
group to which she belongs. Life at
every one of its seven stages has its
peculiar harrowing experiences-hope
mingles with uncertainty in ycujh;
fear and struggle characterize early
manhood; disillusionment, the ques-.
tion whether it is worth while, fill the
years from forty to fifty, but resolute
grappling with each period brings one
out almost inevitably into a fine
serene certainty which cannot but
have its effect on those who are young
er. Ripe old age-cheerful, useful,
and understanding-is one of the
finest influences in the world. We
hang Rembrandt's or Whistler's pic
ture of his mother on our walls that
we may feel Its quieting hand, the
sense of peace and achievement which
the picture carries. We have no bet

TRIUMPH OF GERMAN CHEMIST
Dr. Von Bolton Has Succeeded In Ma
king D' monds Frcm Illuminating
Dr. W. Von Bolton has been trying
to grow diamonds. At a recent con
gress of the German Bunsen society
he described the decomposition of il
luminating gas under the action of so
dium amalgam, which precipitated tue
carbon in the form of black coal and,
it seemed, of diamonds, but these were
in too small quantity to permit of
analysis. Dr. Bolton determined to
obtain a greater quantity by making
diamonds grow on some mother sub
The Scientific American says he
placed 50 grams of 14 per cent, sodi
um amalgam in a long testing tube,
and coated the upper layer with a di
luted water-glass solution, over which
he spread amorphous diamond pow
der. The tube was kept at a temper
ature of 100 degrees centigrade in a
water bath, after which a slow cur
rent of moistened illuminating gas
was introduced. The amalgam was
allowed to give off its mercury vapor
for one month, when very little black
carbo? had been separated, but on
the layer covered with diamond pow
der many particles of high brilliancy
The contents of the tube were boiled
In a platinum crucible with a mixture
of fluoric and sulphuric acids. The
microscope revealed that the amor
phous powder had been converted into
brilliant crystals, true diamonds, still
too small, however, to allow of analy

RATHER A PECULIAR hojbXi
Chief Executive of New York Said to
Have a Marked Fondness
'Tigs is pigs" with Mayor Gajnv.
of New York. They are his favonte
animals, on foot. Besides raising
quite a number himself at his farm
Deep Wells, at St. James, L. t, he al
ways displays an interest in pigs
owned by his neighbors.
He insists on them raising pigs.
The pigless folk of St. James hear
from bim (and he uses just as sharp
language in his neighborly conversa
tion as he does in writing letters to
rat catchers, etc), and hear from him
often until they annex a few "pork-,
ers" as a side line. Several denizens
of that locale admit they keep a few
pigs just to keep peace in the village.
Once a boy did him a really good
turn and he desired to show his ap
preciation of the act. Of course the
boy got a pig for his reward. When
the mayor goes for his jaunt through
the countryside he calls on all the
farmers who raise pigs. The others
do not receive a visit from him.
Whenever he hears that a pig is lil,
no matter if it ls six miles away, he
goes to see that pig. And he usually
prescribes some home remedy for the
animal. He has been known to walk
ten miles on the hottest day to visit
an indisposed pig.
When the mayor visits his country
place at the end of each week during
the summer there is always a group
of villagers on hand to greet him. As
he goes among them shaking their
hands, instead of ?quiring about their
health, he says: "How are your
pigs?"-New York Herald.
NOT OF THE SUPERNATURAL
German Paper Gives Simple Explana*
tion of Circulated Story Con
cerning the Pope.
An extraordinary story about Pius
X. was recently told by a preacher in
one of the churches at Innsbruck. He
said that while the pope was engaged
in prayer he fell into an ecstasy and
rose several feet in the air. Cases of
levitation-the technical word for the
phenomenon-are, of course, recorded
in the lives of many of the "saints. If
a writer in "Das Neue Jahrhundert,"
a journal of markedly anti-papal ten
dencies, is to bo believed, the tale has
a very simple explanation. Pius Y..,
it appears, was working in his study,
and happened to require a book from
a shelf which was beyond his reach.
He climbed on a chair to get lt. A
servant in an ante-room, from motives
of curiosity, not perhaps unmixed
with piety, happened to look through
the keyhole to see what the pope did
when he was alone. To his amaze
ment he saw the white-robed figure of
the pontiff floating a couple of feet
above the floor. The fact was that
between him and Pius X. stood a desk
which hid the chair on which the pope
was standing. It never occurred-JU, ?
the servant that so great a*person as
the pope would resort to so simple an
expedient to get a book. Obviously he
would summon a cardinal or a cham
berlain to his aid? Hence he jumped 1
to the conclusion that he was wit
nessing a supernatural phenomenon.
Berlin Prohibits Horse Cab.
While in most of the large cities of
civilized countries the taxicab reigns
practically supreme, Berlin is the first
metropolis to pass a law prohibiting
horse-drawn cabs from carrying fares
within its jurisdiction. Such an ordi
nance was put In force recently and
the few remaining cabbies were given
notice of the death of their trade. Pro
vision was made for the instructing of
the cabmen as chauffeurs, and $150
was given as compensation for their
loss of trade. This gives the taxicab
drivers a monopoly, but, as the city
authorities have stringent regulations
covering the tolls and other matters,
no trouble is expected from that
source. Co-incidenf with this news
comes the information from London
that the cab situation is so bad there
that a society has been formed for
the relief of indigent cab drivers who
are now unable to reap a living owing
to the inroads taxicabs have made on
The Stooping Bishop.
Nat C. Goodwin was defending a I
clergyman who had gone wrong.
"I don't ( 011 done his offense, mind '
you," said Ar. Goodwin. "But I want
you to be sorry for him. Don't cackle
and rejoice over his downfall. We
are all human."
Then, in his musical and thrilling
voice, the famous comedian resumed:
"I know' a very beautiful actress
who dined one Sunday evening at a
bishop's. After dinner the bishop, as
he helped her to put on her cloak,
stooped-stooped in more ways than
one-and imprinted a kiss on her
"She turned and, looking at him dis
dainfully, she said:
" Ttemember, sir, if I am an actress,
I am a lady, too.'
"The bishop made a low and hum
"'And will you please remember,' he
said, 'If I am a bishop, I am also a
"It's useless to urge me to marry
you. When I say no I mean no."
"Always?" "Invariably." "And can
nothing ever break your determina
tion when once you make up your
mind?" "Absolutely nothing." "Well,
I wouldn't care to marry a girl like
that, anyhow."-Boston Transcript.
