Co-operation is the keynote in suc
cessful accident prevention work
Many large manufacturers who have
designed accident prevention devices
for their own use have not patented
them in order that others may utilize
.their ideas. A large railroad company
which has designed all of the accident
prevention apparatus in use in its ma
chine shops is willing to furnish blue
prints of the devices to those who de
sire to install them in their plants.
Character Told by the Nose.
It is an ancient belief that the nose
Indicates ancestry. We speak about
the aristocratic nose with its high
bridge and the plebeian nose of the
toiler. Certainly, in a great many
cases, race can be distinguished by
the nose. The Hebrew could hardly
be confused with the typical negro
nose. The highly-arched nose is sup
posed to indicate tendency to rule, and
the flattened nose shows servility.
This I, moreover, hold and dare af
firm where'er my rhyme may go.
Whatever things be sweet or fair, love
makes them so. Whether it be the lul
labies that charm to rest the nursling
bird, or that sweet confidence of sighs
and blushes, made without a word.

All In the Vision.
Some people think that everything
In. the world is twisted and corrupt,
and that no human being can be
trusted. Others who are wiser feel
?ery differently about it. As Ruskin
says: "In all things throughout the
?world, the men who look for the
crooked will see the crooked, and the
saan who looks for the straight will
see the straight.".
Preserving Pencil Writing.
If you have a penciled letter which
you want to keep a long while, lay it in
a shallow dish and cover it with
skimmed milk. When the paper is
thoroughly soaked through let the
milk drain off. and dry the paper very
gradually. This makes the writing
fast, so that it cannot be easily rubbed

A Walla Walla man is charged with
endeavoring to annihilate a rabbit
colony with the aid of a pint of kero

of things, the blazing creature bur

thousands of amused rabbits sat
around and watched the fun. No in

To Get Rid of Red Ants.
Red ants can make a house almost
uninhabitable. One can get rid of
them, however, if one knows how. The
first thing to do is to find the place
they come from-i. e., where their
nest is. If it be in an accessible spot,
a little kerosene will quickly p*op the
trouble. On the other ham", if the
nest be in the wall or under the floor,
And the nearest accessible point, and
kill the insects off as they appear.
Plan Big Engineering Feat.
In the Chilean Andes there is a lake
10,000 feet up in the mountains, which
is prevented only by a granite wall a
few feet thick from devastating the
valley below. In order to avert the
disaster engineers are draining the
water by a tunnel and expect to sup
ply electrical current and light to all
the valley cities through the water
power which will be developed.
World's Darkest Moment.
The darkest moment is said to be

blinded by the dazzle of the sun and
