Ooping the Baby.
"At the first sign of an attempt to
standardize and sterilize the babies,"
says Ellis Parker Butler in Success
Magazne, "1 organized the Fond Fa
thersF Oop-da-baby Association ot
'America. For thousands of years fa
thers have been permitted to oop-de
baby unrestrained, and this right was
one of the first rights attacked by the
advocates of the automatic baby. I
considered it a double blow at the
baby and at the father and resented it
as such. If a father may not oop his
own baby. what is the world coming
to? Ooping a baby is a father's great
eat pleasure. It Is the act of grasping
the baby under the arms, tossing the
baby Into the air and catching it on
its down trip, while the words "Oop-de
baby!" are repeated at each toss. This
is repeated until the baby Is hysterical
or drops on the Door by accident. It
Is then handed to Its mother."
Bones Stronger Than Oak.
The wonderful power of bone strue
ture has been tested scientifically to
show how that hollow bone bears
strain. A very small bone, only one
square mMimeter (.0155 square Inch)
in diameter, will hold thirty-three
pounds in suspension without break
ing, while a piece of the best oak of
the same thicliess will bold up only
twenty-two pounds. The bone is
therefore half again as strong as the
sold oak, thus showing that nature Is
economical in the weight given to
bones, making them hollow and at the
Same time makes them stronger than
if they were solid and much heavier.
This principle has been recognized In
mechanics, engineers using hollow
pteel tubes instead of solid to meet
great strain.-New York World.

says a letter from that city, "'Who Is

the answer, and the native tells him
triumphantly, "The government? The

' Air Sacs of Pigeons.
The air sacs of the pigeon constitute
a system of Interstices, the value 'of
which lies in their absence of weight
Flying Is possible only to a body of
high mechanical efficiency divested of
all superfluous material. The original
reptiles, which by evolution became
birds, were divested of superfluous ma.
terlal, and the body- spaces -thus ob
tained were filled with air-sacs. The -
body wall, adapting itself to the me
chanlal requirements, became a hollow
cylinder serving as a support for the
organs of movement, the mobility of
whose parts was assured by the sur
rounding air-sacs. The air cavities in
the bones of other birds are similrly
