THE CHEMIST'S COCKTAIL.
Modern organic chemistry has a language of its
own. Tho following is an example from a recent
'article: "The dianhydride of 18.104.22.168-napthalen-etetracarboxylic
acid was heated for three hours at
170 degrees C. with four times its weight of the
diethyl-ester of malonic acid, together with twice
its weight of zinc chloride, whereby 5.10-diketo-3.8-dihydroxyprene
was formed, which on distilla
tion with zinc dust gave pyrene, recognized by its
characteristic picrate, m. pt. 223 degrees 0."'
THE BUCKEYE'S GETTING TOGETHER.
Tho Receptiou committee for the Republican
"get-together" banquet in Columbus today', Thurs
day includes the names of such prominent Ohio Bull
Moosers as Dan R. Hanna of Cleveland, former
Prosecuting Attorney II. C. Webster of Toledo, who
was the Progressive candidate for Congress in tho
Ninth district in 1912; Frank G. Bartholomew of
Springfield, who was chairman of the Clark County
Progressive committee two years ago, and C. L.
Knight of Akron, former State central committee
man from the Nineteenth district:.

JUNK d& (COSTLY STOCK.
The French have a saying that "It is only the
first step which is difficult. " He is u bold manager
who fuees his directors with an apparent reduction
of two or three" hundred dollars worth of merchan
dise and gives them an actual five-dollar bill iiij
stead, but all this odd stuff clutters up storerooms
and costs a pretty penny trying to work in some
where, saj'H a writer in the American Machinist.
1 Know one concern which had a large contract
for some agricultural work that needed about a
ton of malleable-iron thumb-nuts which through
some mistake, were not tapped the right size. They
were carried on the books for several years at their
original cost and then the superintendent of the
shop wanted to scrap them, but tho manager said
no. Months later he was much pleased to tell the
superintendent that he could use some of these
thumb-nuts. He felt proud that he had not allowed
them to be scrapped, but was a little chagrinod to
find that in order to use them a special die had to
be made, which cost about as much as uew thum
nuts and that, after all, less than 100 were re
quired. Then he suddenly remembered that as the
mistake was made by the manufacturers of the
thumb-nuts, they really did not belong to the com
pany at all, yet they had stood on the inventory as.
THE DAILY NOVELETTE
CAUSES FOR DIVORCE.
According to Judge Roekford of the Superior
Court of Indianapolis, if the divorce evil is to be
corrected this country must have fewer automo
bile rides by husbands and wives with the hus
bands and wives of others, fewer x-ray gowns and
split skirts; frivolous telephone conversation should
be reduced to the minimum and young husbands
should boast less frequently of their conquests
among women. If these rules are followed, Judge
Roekford declares, the divorce courts will not have
much to do.
Judge Littlepage, in the Kanawha Circuit Court
the other day, complained of the ast number of
divorce cases that continually demand his attention,
saying that some days he had as many as eight
cases up before him, and he solicited a committee
of the local bar to ascertain if he is empowered with
authority to refer divorce proceedings to a Com
mission. He was advised that he was so empow
ered. And now, we wonder how many of the eight-per-day
in Judge Littlepage 's court grew out of auto
mobile rides, x-ray gowns and slit skirts, conversa
tions over the telephones and boasting by yoilng
husbands of conquests among woman other than
the one woman?" Here's a chance for the expert ftd oat1'8 "'"K k-ick niltl fortn aU(1 around, camo the sound
