Are You a Fan?
For six months life has been noth-
ing but a weary grind for thousands
of men of the United States. In the
coming six months, not one will re
linqui sh his hold on life without a
stiff fight. Why? Becau se the 1912
baseball season starts today and now
life is worth living.
It is peculiar how baseball as
such a hold on the American public.
The game is not played by its most
enthusiastic admirers for they are
only allowed to sit on a bench a nd
voiciferate: The men in the field are
seld om from the home town but are
gathered far a nd wide a nd their in-
terest is financial at its base. The
whole system is founded on the mon-
ey power, and yet the game as a
stronger hold on the American peo-
ple than any oth er ever known.
The sportin g- sheet will be the
most popular page in every daily for
weeks to come and will be read with
eagerness by thousands of fans.
When the home team is away, they
will proudly acclaim its conquests or
bravely endure its defeats, ut when
it comes Home, the bo ys will all be
there. Anyway, the best part is that
it ge ts thousands of busine ss men out
in the open for a few hours a day giv-
ing them lung exercise and much
needed fresh air.
NOT ON SECURE FOUNDATION
Engineer Explains Why Some Build

"What makes a building shake as

"Only the buildings whose founda

foundations go down just a few feet
below the cellar floor, and stop in
the subsoil, often imagin es he is in

"When the wagon bearing the beam
goes traveling along it bum ps over
the Inequalities of the street with tre
mendous force, and this imparts wave
motions to the soil, which In turn
transfer the vibrations to the old*
style foundations, which sway and
shake and tremble. The foundations
whose piers rest on bed rock are not
affected. A twenty-ton beam, as it
slips from one paving stone to an
other, Imparts a force to the ground
that may be likened to a constant
bombardment, but because the wa ve
of motion proceeds in constantly
widening circles, and hence In con
stantly diminishing force distributed
all over the foundation, no harm re
sults. If the force were all driven at
one point the effect would be like
that of a projectile from a battle-

Great Plague of London.
Medical authorities. agree that the
epidemic which prevailed in London
in 1665 was what we now call bu
bonic plague. It is well known that
this "Black Death" was prevalent In
various parts of the world in ancient
time s. The outbreaks were peculiarly
violent th en by reason of the condi
tions of poverty and the almost total
absence of sanitation. It was the an
cient medical writers who gave it the
name of the plague.
The mortality in London in 1666
was appalling. Thousands were swept
away by the dread malady, and there
was a great exodus from the stricken
city. Some of the medical authorities
thought it had been brought into Lon
don in bales of merchandise coming
from Holland, which originally came
from the Levant others contended
that It was brought in by Dutch pris
oners of war.

Record has recently been made of a
canary bird that displays almost hu
man intelligence. The bird in ques
tion ac ts as guard over a sleeping
child, singing shrilly at any sign of
danger. The bird is allowed the free
dom of the house a nd never showa
any desire to escape into the free air.
A night it will perch itself on the
baby's cradle and such seems to be
its liking for the child that if anyone
approaches to disturb its slumber, it
shows spirited signs of its displeasure.
A man in Lond on prizes a parrot
for its intelligence. The bird is as
valuable about the man's house as
any patent burglar alarm he could
buy. The parrot is always on guard.
If anyone approches the house, the
bird sets up such a commotion that
if the person is bent, on evil, he if
immediately frightened awa y.
