An Indianapolis woman ls fond of

the family and they went to school
with other children, perhaps a trille
better off as to this world's goods
than they were. At any rnte, the
other children were always talking
about their upstairs. And there
was no upstairs to the cottage where
the Indianapolis woman's family lived

to sleep upstairs.
When mother came home she found
out what had happened. She

amid the dust and dirt and whatnots
and cobwebs were the two beds.
So Just to punish the children for
their disobedience mother made them
sleep up there a few nights in the

The new South Wales government
is reintroducing a large holding sub
division bill, compelling owners to
subdivide for closer settlement any
land exceeding $100,000 in value. If,
for instance, the owner of land worth
$250,000 refuses to subdivide it the
government will compulsorily acquire
$150,000 worth and make lt available
for closer settlement.
The intention is to pay Immediate
cash or current rates of Interest to
the owners. The mensure, which ia
approved by most Australian Individ
ual landholders, but bitterly opposed
by big lnnd companies with headquar
ters lu Englund, will have thc effect
of opening for cultivation largo areas
now utilized as sheep runs. Thus lt
will alford an opportunity for un In
creased agricultural population and
scope for Immigrants.
It ls designed to mitigate the ei

inability io provide Australian agricul
turists with land. These people are
being driven to the cities to swell the
ranks of the unemployed, making dan
gerous centers of discontent.

EGYPT UNDER BRITISH RULE
Population of Nearly Thirteen Million
I? Decidedly Cosmopolitan In
Egypt ls a country exceeding In
actual extent France and Germany.
Its aren Is some 424,000 square miles,
but of this total more than 98 per
cent Is desert land supporting only a
very scanty nomad population. The
important part ol the country, con
sisting of the valley and delta of the
Nile together with the western oases,
covers an area of 12,220 square miles,
or a territory only n little larger than
BeJgium. In addition, some 2,850
square miles comprise tho surface of
the Nile, marshes and lakes, while
canals, roads and date plantations
cover another 1,000 square miles.
Egypt, therefore, is a small country
with well-defined natural boundaries
on three sides, namely, the Mediter
ranean on the north, the Arabian
desert and the Red sea on the east,
and the Libyan desert on the west.
To the south Egypt extends up to a
point 25 miles north of Wadi Haifa,
on the second cataract of the Nile.
The present population of Egypt ls
12,740,705, ns compared with 11,287,
850 in 1007, with 0,784,405 In 1807,
and with 0,881,181 In 1882. Of the
total population 10,800,046 are Egyp
tians, 035,012 Bedouins, 05,102 Nu

Miss Marceline Stokes is a social

Miss Stokes does not give her own age

an epoch of the middle-aged beau;
that young girls prefer ns husbands
"hard-boiled old men to half-baked
youths." The flapper's henrt beats
responsive to the male person of forty
five. "It startles mc," she exclaims,
and we are not surprised. A great
many things startle the lady or the
gentleman who contemplates matri
mony merely as an interesting study.
We are fain to believe she ls more
than half right, nt that, and there are
reasons. Young women of a generation
or so ago did not come In contact with
the matured unlncumbercd man of
forty-flvc. The girls were at home
doing housework. Now they go
abroad, they encounter the veterans in
business and elsewhere and naturally
they make comparisons. And when
comparisons are made the callow
youth gets the worst of the analysts.
