Mr. Cohb called attention to th(
fact that Governor Patterson had re

position that since Mr. Garlington re

New York, January 14.-The big

~taeular perpendicular decline seen in
a week of erratic recessions. Reports

The situation had d.eveloped be

a threat of the greatest squeeze of

trade. but other hulls who had fol

come into the market.
The Scales party was said to hav,
its cotton margined down to ten
eents a pound and it was confidently

never abandon their position.
The facts have proved, however, i
that the continued pressure was too
heavy. To-day it was announced that
Mr. Scales had transferred his hold

Smaller operators were hard nipped,
but it is believed the larger bulls li- i

Road Improvement in Pennsylvania.
"In the awakening of public sen
timent in the eause of 'good roads'
which has been witnessed during the I
last few years Pennsylvania found 1
itself coNfronted by a problem of no 1
small degree, with its nearly 100,000
miles of public highways, but a very
small percentage of which could by
any stretch of imagination be con
strued as 'improved,'" says R. D.
Beman, Deputy State Highway Com
missioner of Pennsylvania, in the
February number of Popular Me
, chanies. In an interesting article, he
explains how the question has been
handled and road conditions through
out the state improved. The article
is well illustrated.

If, duriqf the past year, the world
had progressed in every phase in the
same degree that it did scientifically
and mechan.ically, it would be differ-A
ent to convince the masses that the
millennium was not at hand. Some
who have kept closely in t6uch with
this development may be inclined to
thiak that it is only the careful rec
ord embodied in the pages of Popu
tar Mechanics Magazine that make
it seem so remarkable, but a sum
aiary of the ' actual achievements
during 1909, appearing in the Feb-,y
cuary number, effeetually removes y
hi s doubt. Moreover, the February 3
.umber, which contains 269 articles
and 250 illustra-tions, constitutes a
gratifying fore-taste of what the
present year may have in store.
Many of these articles describe new
inventions and discoveries; others
instruet, ,by .comparison and still
,>tb'ers present familiar things in
new lights calculated to arouse* inter
est and engender thought. Every ar
ticle is written so.-you can under
stand'1it and is'stimulating in tone*;
every illustration is unusual, and
macny a.re reproductions of photo
graphs secured under pecliar
,dangerorus-condlitions and impossi-j
ble to duplicate from any other
source. Many editors of the,
eut day employ an involved style
often more gratifying to themselves
thiaa to their readers, but H. H.
Windsor in his editorials treats 'the
iveightie st .subj4pt lucidly. In the
February number he ,discusses the
manufacture of "shoddy,'' the man
uifacture of aeroplanes, Weather Bu
reau service, development of the
movirng picture and the conservation
of the water supply.
Other features of the February
azumber are illustrated articles on
chicago 's New Subway .Project, Suc

Armies, The Best Ventilated House

Fifth Ave. High School, Pittsburgh,
contributes an interesting and in
structive article on Heat, treating of
