UNREST IN ENGLAND
Duke of Marlborough Blames
Dearth of Cottages for Evil.
Absence of Homes for Humblest
Classes of Rural Workers Is De
populating the Country "Week
Enders" Is Chief Cause.
T.Amlon. When tho duko of Marl
burough, In hia recent articles In tbo
Daily Mall on "Industrial Unreal in
Konland," traced the source of the
1 rouble back to the dearth of cottages
fox country laborers, It seemed rather
fanciful, but since his articles were
prixted, no small amount of evidence
has appeared to back up hid theory.
One of the moat Interestlm contri
butions to tho diHCUsalon comes from I
"A Country Parson," who sns that the
dearth of homes for the humblest
classes or rural workers is a crying I
eU. According to him. It Is depopu- I

Marriages among tho young people
are at a discount, ho says. Twenty
years ago, in his parish, the registers
show there was a yearly average of
jsix marriages of agricultural laborers.
During the last eight years this aver
Age has been reduced to one. Assur
dlr this statement backs up the duke
Tbe young men in the country have
no inducements to marry there and no
bo-nee to settle down in. They flock
to the cities, they crowd out the city
bona of weaker phystquo, they lower
the standard of wages by glutting the
Jal-or market. Then come poverty,
strike, paralysis of business, general
Rut why should there be a dearth
at rural cottages. Why does not the
law of supply and demand operate to
ntJ It in short order? One reason
scemh to be that all sorts of outsid
er are competing with the agricultur
al laborer in the way of a cottage that
Tniy exist or be built in rural regions.
Behind this Is the fundamental
caase, the fact that the agricultural
3a!xrer Is so badly paid or paid in
Mich an unpractical way that he is not
Able to pay anything like a decent
rent for a home anything like the

case of tho week ender is cited. The

MODES OF TRAVEL IN CYPRUS
Mules Largely Used, but They Ara
Frequently Too Independent for
FamagURta. At tho tlmo of tho
nritlsh occupation thcro was only one
road In Cyprus, but In tho present day
one may travel In comparative comfort
over tho greater part of the Island.
Tho roads have not reached the
standard whero motoring q a pleas

string of camels sitting In the road,
or tho way Is blocked by mules laden
with enormous stocks of sweet smell

pir.turcitqucnosA of tho scenery. There
is one lino of railway which stretches
a dlJtanco of sixty-two miles, from the
harbor of Famagusta up to Nicosia,
tho capital, and beyond to Marphou.
Mules are used throughout the
country, and the Cyprian mules aro

of the Cyprlot to load his mulo with
all tho paraphernalia that can possi

then to seat himself on top and guide

The chief disadvantage In riding
mules Is that the stirrups are not fixed
and a sudden pressure on the right
foot will spnd the laft knee up to the
rider's chin, depositing him suddenly
on the ground. Some Cyprus mules
have also a habit of planting both feet
on tho extreme edge of a precipice
and stretching out their necks to look
at the sceno below. AH things betm?

feel happier upon the mountain pon

Huge Mass of Iron Knocked Hole
in Earth in Arizona
Such Is Belief of Prof. Ellhu Thomson
Movement Started to Find Im
mense Piece of Ore Believed
to Be Worth Millions.
Phcenk, Ariz. About tho origin of
most of the craters of tho earth's sur
face then- is llttlo dispute. They aro
of all sizes. Wo find them In the
Sandwich Islands, with floors fiom
three to four square miles In area.
These have reminded Professor Pick
ering of nothing less than the ring
craters on the moon. In Arlronn.
near Canon Diablo, Is a crater-like de
pression 4,00(1 feet In diameter and
r00 feet deep. Tho rim can be soon
from a great distance, and, such rims
being called "buttes," this particular
rim Is known as Coon buttc. The Ir
regular contour of the rim is marked
by broken rocks, some as largo as a
house. The outer slopes down to tho
plain are covered with similar masses,
pieces of many tons weight having
been thrown thousands of feet away
from the crater. But there is no
lava about the butte, ami this would
seem summarily to dispose of the Idea
that Coon butte Is the site of a vol
cano. Dr. O. K. Gilbert many years ago
suggested that the ring-shaped pits on
the moon's surface were caused by
the impact of giant meteorites, and
for some time he held tho view that
Coon butte must have been formed
in a similar manner. This view has
of late been revived. Prof. Ellhu
j Thomson, In a letter to the American
Institute of Electrical Engineers, re
minds us that the masses of iron flung
down the outer slopes of the crater
aro sent to all parts of the world as
meteoric Iron. Mr. Darrlnge has
spent considerable sums in explora
tion under the firm conviction that ho
will find a largo amount of meteoric
iron below tho surface. So far he has
been unsuccessful It Is calculated
that SOO bore-holes, each costing
about 400, willbenecessnry to make
sure of finding the meteoric mass, as
! sumlng it to have been 500 feet in
The mass of the meteorite is esti
mated to have been at lea3t five mil
lion tons. Of this the greater part
would be iron, but 8 per cent, would
be nickel, and there would be three
million ounces of platino-lridium,
worth about twenty million sterling

present, between 7 and 8 per

ounce. But this Is not all. Assuming
there 13 one-hundredth of 1 per cent,
of diamond in the mass, one might
count on tho extraction of about 500
tons of diamond. Which may account
for prospectors regarding tho expendl
turn of a quarter of a million on bore
holes with some equanimity. Profes

PATHETIC PLEA FOR CHILDREN
Words of Charles Klngsley Worth
Heeding by Every Man and Wom
an of Any Worth.
Do not decelvo yourselves about tho
little dirty, nffcnslvo children In tho
street. If they bo offensive to you,
they aro not to him that mado them.
"Tnko heed thnt ye despise not ono
of thoso llttlo ones; for I say unto you
that In heaven their nngcls do always
boh old tho face of my father which
Is In heaven." Is thero not in every
ono of them, as In you, tho light thnt
llghteth every map that comcth Into
tho world? And know you not who that
light Is, and what ho said of llttlo
children? Then tako heed, I say, lest
you despise ono of these little ones.
Listen not to tho Pharisee when ho
says: Except tho llttlo child bo con
verted, and become ns I am, ho shall
In nowlso enter Into tho kingdom of
heaven. Hut listen to tho voice of him
who knew what Is in man, when he
said: "Except ye bo converted, yo
shall not enter Into tho kingdom of
heaven." Their souls aro like their
bodies, not perfect, but beautiful
enough and fresh enough to shame
anyono who shall daro to look down
upon them. Their souls nro Ilko their
bodies, hidden by the rags, foul with
tho dirt of what wo miscall civiliza
tion. Put take them to the pure
stream, strip off the ugly, shapeless
rags, wash the young limbs again, and
you sh.aU find them, body and soul,
fresh and lithe, graceful and capable
capable of how much God alone who
mado thorn knows. Prom Charles

assigned to the Order of tho Holy
Sepulchre, though there is a legendary
tradition that traces its origin to the
time of Charlemagne. In the middle
of the last century, however, when
the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem
