GAVE NEW IDEA TO WORLD
Architect Admita He Owes to Lucky
Dream Structural Scheme Which
Makes Him Famous.
When the new three-story Bahai
temple, which ls to cost several million
.dollars, ls erected In Chicago, a dream

More than 25 years ago Bourgeoise
sat OD the sea shore one night tracing
.out lines he found In the study of the
movement of the stars. A wave rush
ed in over his markings on the sands,
and they were lost. Just 12 years ago
He heard of the competition for the
Bahai temple. He mortgaged his home,
and bought a small confectionery
store which his wife, an artist, ran
while he worked. Baha . *0 Uah,
iounder of Bahalsm, had adopted nln?
as the symbolic number of his re
ligious movement, and said his temples
.should have nine sides, with as mans
equal gates for the nine great world
religions he wished to unite in one
Bourgeoise sketched the idea; bul

not know how to carve. So one Sun
day a friend taught him.. And then

first was completed, and the third onlj

His model took first prize. And it ls
probable that Abul Bahai, present
pontiff of Bahalsm, will come to Chi

BEST FORM OF WIND MOTOR
Machine That Will Work In Perfect
Calm ls Recent Invention of a
. Swedish Manufacturer.
For decades attempts at construct
ing a wind motor that works so stead
ily as to be used profitably for gen
erating electricity failed because wind
! motor and generator were directly
connected by a rod, and the Quantity
of electric current was in direct pro
portion to the power developed by the
A Stockholm (Sweden)' manufactur
er succeeded recently in construct
ing a satisfactory wind motor. While
the wind ls strong.only part of the
motor's power is utilized to drive the
generator, while the surplus power
lifts a heavy weight attached to an
endless chain. When the wind ls not
strong enough to furnish sufficient mo
tor power, or ceases wholly, the gen
erator ls kept In motion by the force
of the slowly falling weight
The famous Swedish engineer, Jan
son, figures that the generator is kept
working at full capacity even If abso
lute calm prevail for three days.
A curious new form of aluminum
has been attracting attention in
France. When the pare metal Is heat
ed in a vacuum, 97 per cent of lt is
slowly volatlUzedftin Til hours at about
1,100 degrees Centigrade; and the
whole ls volatilized In 30 hours at
1,200 degrees centigrade. A small por
tion always proves less volatile than
the rest Quite often a kind of frac
tional distillation yields an aluminum
residue that has Increased affinity for
oxygen, and within a month this Is
completely changed Into a bulky gray
Ish-whlte mixture of alumina and
aluminum. One suggestion ls that Im
purities of iron or silicon Impart this
peculiarity. But analysis shows only
four per cent of Iron, and five per cent
-of silicon, and the form of metal so
readily oxidized proves, therefore, to
be purer than the aluminum used for
kitchen utensils and various other pur
poses with no tendency to become oxi
dized. It Is concluded that the easily
'oxidized metal ls an allotropic form
Prepared for Tourists.
Tourists flocking to the war zone
are finding novel hotel arrangements
and conditions more comfortable than
expected In view of tte fact that hard
ly a hotel was left habitable when the
Germans retreated eighteen months
ago. The latest Innovation of French
tourist agencies is a hotel opened In
Arras, where a series of ordinary rail
road coaches are arranged In a square
with a tent roof over the center, form
ing reception and dining rooms. The
Arras train bot?is have eighty rooms,
each coach providing four compart
ments large enough to accommodate
the most fastidious customers. Bunga
low hotels are being erected, especial
ly in the Argonne, where the shell
torn trees are being razed to provide
timber for Canadian style cottages.
Americans who have forgotten the
geography lessons of their school days
will be surprised by statements made
In an article on Chinese trade pub
lished In Shipping. Manila, it says,
which is an American insolar posses
sion, ls closer to China than is Tokio,
the capital of Japan. The Alaskan
coast ia within 50 miles of Siberia.
Therefore, the article concludes, it
would seem that America should be
more Interested In Asiatic than in Eu
ropean trade.-From the Outlook.
New Idea for Garage.
The newest public garage has a fea
ture saving the automobile owner a lot
of annoyance which he Invariably ex
periences In getting his car Into a
space assigned to him at a public gar
age. The new idea ls to run lt on a
transfer truck which carries the cai
to the desired place and the automo
bile VJ run off the track Into Its place.

Address of Senator E. D.
Smith to the People of
I wish to express to the voters of . my State my
heartfelt appreciation of the generous support given
me in the election last Tuesday. I received more than
20,000 votes over my nearest opponent, and came.,
within a few votes of a majority.
The issues before the people are clear cut.
Three powerful interests are endeavoring to bring
about my defeat.
FIRST: The cotton exchanges on account of the
legislation I had passed fixing it so that they could ho
longer deal in fictitious cotton, and exploit the real cot
ton of our real farmers.
SECOND : The whiskey interests desire my defeat
so as to advertise to the world that South Carolina is
repudiating her stand on prohibition.
THIRD: The great financial institutions of Wall"
Street oppose me. The reason is that by my work in
having adopted the proviso to Section 13, of the Fed
eral Reserve Act, the Southern farmers' cotton b?came
a basis of credit. Because of this the money power,
the manipulators, the speculators, and gamblers on fhe
New York Cotton Exchange are working for my de
They knowing that 1 am the only Simon Pure farm
er ^?n the United States Senate, and that I have been
working for the past twelve years to keep them from
using our cotton for their own selfish interests, and
knowing that by my being advanced to the head of the
Agricultural Committee of the Senate my power will '-.
be greater than ever before, they are sparing no effort
or means to defeat me.
Unlike my opponent I have done and am doing all I
can to wipe out factionalism in South Carolina, so we
can all co-operate and pull together for a profitable
price for our main money crop-cotton, and for the de
velopment of all the industrial and other interests of
We have these selfish interests opposed to us, but we
are going to win. The people of South Carolina do
not move backward, and they will not be deceived by ,
"camouflaged" arguments and false reports. The best/
years of my life have been given to the^rvice of tfijpJ;
people of my State, and my fists are not only doubled,
but 1 am going to strike every enemy of the best in
terests of South Carolina.
Thanking you again for your confidence already ex
pressed, and with assurances for the future, I am
E. D. SMITH.

UVERY dollar that you spend foolishly*
every proprotionate amount of money
that you earn that it would be possible to save and do
not, is only money that you have to work for again.
On the other hand every dollar you put in the bank is
money that is going to constantly work for you.
Which is the best; money always working for you, or
you always working for your money. Come in and
start that bank account. Don't.put it off another day.
