In urging them to observe Child Labor
Day, the Social Service Commission
i of the Protestant Episcopal Diocese of
t. New York sends to all the clergy in
' that diocese the following strong re' **'
solutions adopted by the House of!
-Bishops at the last General Conven- '
I s tion, Cincinnaati, in 1910. ;;
.. "Whereas, The-employment of child
dMeii in factories, mines -and shops, re
duces wages to tne cnna's sianaara,
disintegrates the family, deprives the
child of his natural rights to a period
of training and time of play, and depreciates
the human stock; and,
"Whereas, We recognize the responsibility
of the church for our ini
dustrial as well as our spiritual standard;
"Therefore, We call upon employers
and parents to use all influence
toward better legislation and better enforcement
of the laws for the protection
of children, to the end that ex
ploitation of the labor of children
shall become impossible in this Christ*
W" To aid in the observance of Child Labor
day, the National Child Labor
Committ e is sending free to all clerp
gymen and school principles who apply
for it, a pamphlet of facts about]
Child Labor. In this the Committee!
prints, among other things, the cfh
sus figures on Child Labor for 1900,
subject, and points, out that the total
number of workers 10?15 years of
age, i,idz,ioi, aoes noi. mciuae me
thousands of newsboys and bootblacks
who w-ere attending school, nor the i
other thousands of children who were;
employed in tenement house mruufacturing.
Also, the estimates of 284,330
children classified as engaged in manufacturing
and mechanical pursuits is
misleading since cannery children
were in many States reckoned as agri- |

Southeastern States Lead.
Washington, D. C., January 20.?!
President Finley, of the Southern Railway
Company, commenting upon record
of cotton mill construction duri
ing the calender year 1912, said:
"The Southeastern States led all
other sections of the country in cotton
mill development in 1912. There were
37 new mills built in the United States
I during the year. Of these 20 were in
I the Southeastern States. Out of 533,fr
300 new spinales 427,000, or 80 per
L cent, were in Southeastern mills, and
ft out of 9,774 new looms, 6,450, or G6
ir per cent, were in Southeastern mills.
These figures refer only to new mills
and take no account of the large addirtions
made during the year to existing
plants by which the manufacturing
capacity of the section was largely
increased. The aggregate increase
has been so great as practically to
^ insure the maintenance of the record
made by the cotton-producing states
in the year ended August 31, 1912.
\vh 11 the mills of the South consumed
more cotton than those of all other
sections of the I'nited States.

Barking at Bismarck.
Bismarck was no favorite with "women,
least of all clever women, who i
dared to think for themselves and
imagine that they could fathom questions
of state. He was never tired ^
,of snubbing strong-minded ladies, put- ^
^ting them down and. stamping on them.
- One day he paid a visit to the Russian
embassy at Berlin, where he be
>haved as usual, flouting even his mis
tress of the house, the Countess
JSchouvaloff herself. He took his ]
leave at length, to the relief of every- 1
body, and presently the family mastiff \
was heard barking at the great man as 1
he passed through the courtyard. Im- j
mediately the countess ran to thei <
open window, and Bismarck heard her 1
voice, saying to him in a tone of gentle :

bite my dog!"?Tit-Bits. ;
Receipts of Longevity.
The late John Bigelow, the patriarch
of diplomats and authors, and
the no less distinguished physician
and author, Dr. S. Weir Mitchell, were
together several years ago at West
Point. ' Dr. Bigelow was then ninetytwo
and Dr. Mitchell eighty.
The conversation turned to the subject
of age. "I attribute my many ?
years," said Dr. Bigelow, "to the fact ,
that I have been most abstemious. I
have eaten sparingly, and have not ,
used tobacco, and have taken little
"It is just the reverse in my case,"
explained Dr. Mitchell. "I have eaten
just as much as I wished, if I could
get it: I have always used tobacco,
immoderately at times; and I have always
taken a great deal of exercise."
With that, ninety-two years shook
his head at eighty years ana said,

DIGGING FOIJ A METEOR.
One Worth Billions of Dollars Believ- f
ed to be in Arizona.
Several years ago a syndicate of
mining men began sinking a shaft in
Arizona to reach the largest diamond
in the- world, believed to be no less .
than half a mile thick. This shaft is
now 1,600 feet deep. Three or four
hundred feet more, it is expected, will
reveal the great prize.
The scene of this most wonderful
mining operation is Meteor Mountain,
Ariz. The mountain is such in name, :
<only, as it is little more than a butte,
^rising 200 or 300 feet above th-e desert,
about ten miles from Canyon Diabolo j
station, on the Sante re ranroau.
. Viewed from a distance Meteor j
Mountain looks little different from
the countless other butte's that rear _
their heads above th? southwestern
desert. But as soon as one begins to ,
climb its sides, strewn with meteoric
fragments, he realizes that he is on the '
threshold of one of the world's great^
From the top of the "mountain" one
gazes into a bowl-like depression in

acro-s. It is in appearance like a vol-:
Scientists agree that this crater |
marks the place where a giant met-;

When this giant mass struck the I
?arth there was no butte there; the!
buue was creat-d when the meteoritestruck,
its tremendous weight di?plac-i
ing strata of rock, sending huge clouds j
Df dust into the air and forming the |
'mountain" as it exists today.
After the meteorite sank into the,

over the edges of the huge bowl and!

But the most remarkable thing about
his meteorite, apart from its prodigious
size, is the fact that in a1! prob-!
ibilitv it consists of one huge diamond! j
This \i inl" rred from the fact that!
uimerous large fragments of the rae-i
r-orife found in the crater, and which j
ire unusually heavy, were found, upon j
nwstigation, to contain, besides me-j
:eoric iron, large, hard black diamonds j

Even if the meteor itself consists
only of black diamonds its value would

s worth even more than a white one

probable, however, that the bulk of

The California redwood- is constantI

y gaining in popularity in the manufacture

md indeed no lumber is more suitaDle
for the purpose. This popularity
:s due to the fact that it is suscepuDie i

to "all changes and condition of climate.
The Petaluma Incubator company
was the first to see the advantages
of the use of Calfornia redwood,
as in fact, many years ago, they were
the' first to begin the manufacture of
Incubators. The "Petaluma" is the
pioneer hatching machine. Its incubator
antedates that of any other on the
market, and to them, therefore, and
to the energy, persistence and patience
of their Mr. L. C. Bvce, is du-e
the credit, to a very large extent, of I
the development of incubators and
brooders to the extent which exints*
