In France, or in Amerlcn and the other allied countries, the report of the armistice signing which practically
concluded t.'ie world war was greeted most enthusiastically. Crowds marched In a continuous procession through
the streets of Paris. This photograph shows a crowd marching before the stntue of Strassburg, which up to the
time that peace was declnred was a sort of memorial to the loss of that city In 1871 to the Germans. Now the
mourning wreaths ore replaced by flowers, flags and bunting.

What Was on the Arm.
A story comes from "over there"
about a "bear cat," as the negro sol
dier Is called by the fighting men, who
raided a Hun machine gun nest and
wiped them out. After the raid one
of the negro soldiers wns found search
ing the battlefield.
"What you looking for, man?" In
quired another "bear cat," with some
"I'm looking for mnh arm," was the
reply of the first soldier.
Then the Inquisitive one observed
for the first time that his buddy's left
arm had been shot away. "That there
arm ain't going to do you nny good
any more even If you do And It," the
Inquirer said. 4
"It nln't, eh," retorted tho wounded
man. "It ain't the arm I wants so
bad," he continued, "but It's the wrist
watch on It." And he renewed his
Figure It Out.
"Anything I can do for you?" asked
nsurgeon as he passed the bed of a
smlllngr but badly wouuded soldier.
"Yes, doctor, perhaps you can tell
me something I'd very much like to
know," answered tiie Yank.
"Fire ahead." replied ' tho doctor.
"What Is It?"
"Well, doctor, when one doctor doc
tors another doctor, does the doctor
doing the. doctoring doctor the other
doctor as the doctor wants to be doc
tored, or does the doctor doing the doc
toring doctor the other doctor ns the
doctor doing the doctoring wants to be

Abundant Proof That Africa Wat at
One Time Peopled by Races of
- Evidences are multiplying that Af
Ilea contains tho secrets of a great
civilization. At present It Is purtlally
ft savage lnnd, given over to savage
nlmnls nnd equally savage men, nnd
it Is dinicult to conceive thnt In the
mists of antiquity this continent was
peopled by Intelligent communities.
'In the Inst century a great deal was
learned about this dark continent, nnd
the South African company did much
to add to our store of knowledge.
The expedition of this company into
Mnshonalnnd, in search of gold, pass-
eu me wonaerrui ruins of Zimbnye
Dearly 200 miles due west of Sofaln!
on the Indian ocean.
They have been attributed to the
Moors, the Phoenicians and tho Per
sinus, and It Is said by the old chron
Iclers that there were Inscriptions,
Which modern nrcheologlsts have set
iout to decipher.
; These structures were reared of
granite, hewn Into smnll Mocks a lit
tle larger than a brick, nnd put to
gcther without mortar. In all the
walls are seen two or thcee courses
of masonry, whero the granite blocks
are Inserted in zlg.ng fashion.
There seems to be no doubt thnt
they were erected ns places of de
fense nnd also for the smelting, stor
ing and protection of gold, copper mid
On removing n qunntlty of the sur
face rubbish Inside, there wns found
what was evidently three lnrgo circu
lar roasting floors, formed of burnt
fireclay nnd sllghtV concave. There
were also remains of slag, nnd other
evidences thnt the place had been used
for smelting metuls.
It is certain thnt the Inst tlilnc civ.
lllzed men would expect to find in this
region, where the natives belong to
the lower stages of humnn develop
nient, nre these great rock structures
betokening the existence of a former
.civilization amid these wilds. '
; The natives have not even nny tra
dition as to the origin of the ruins.
.There are many facts proving their
jgreat antiquity, and among theiu the
circumstances thnt nt one of the great
ruins nt Zlmhaje nn ironwood tree,
which wns undoubtedly hundreds of
years old, had risen through the wall
nnd split It.
Watch for Tacks In Pie.
Tho question ns to whether a per
son who finds n black tack in a piece
of blueberry pie Is entitled to recover
damages from n restnurnnt company
for gross negligence in not detecting
the presence of the tnck In tho pie,
has been pnssed on by tho supremo
court of Massachusetts in Ask vs.
Chllds Pining Hall company, in which
,the court ruled for the defendant and
held that the plaintiff bad failed to
sustain tho burden of proof in estab
lishing either direct, or inferential evi
dence of negligence. In pointing out
tho difficulties confronting the defend
ant In keeping small black tacks nut
of its blueberry pies, the court snld:
"The tnck was very smnll. It was so
tiny thnt it readily might have become
Imbedded in a blueberry. If so, its
color and shnpe were such thnt It
would naturally escnpe the most care
ful scrutiny. It might ns rendlly have
stuck Into a blueberry before it came
to the possession of tho defendant as
afterward. The carelessness of some
person for whom the defendant In no
wny was responsible might hnve
caused Its presence In the pie. The
maker of the basket, some previous
owner of tho berry, or somo other
third person, Is ns likely to hnve been
the direct cause of the tuck being In
the pie ns the defendant or those for
whose conduct It Is lliible."
Beams Made of Redwood.
. Wood Is now rapidly supplanting
steel beams In industrial plant con
struction, ns may bo seen In n lnrgo
paper pulp mill which Is now belna
erected. What nre known ns laminat
ed wooden trusses are being put in by
a Chicago construction company bnv
Ing tho contract for the mill. Tho
largest trusses used are (Hi feet long,
there being six of these, nnd the ma
terial is n redwood. There nre 21 !50
foot trusses nnd seTen (M-foot trusses.
,Twenty thousand feet of the material
Is redwood nnd the remainder south
ern pine. The redwood Is used In tho
part of the cut work that Is directly
above the big vats in the mill, this
wood being considered more adapta
ble to stand the action of tho steam
from the vats.
Watches Made of Cannon. n
Wnr , souvenirs in the shnpe of
watches innde front the steel of Pel
glnn cannon which were In active serv
ice on the Belgian front since the be
ginning of the wnr in 1014 till Octo
ber 20, 1017, are being manufactured
In Switzerland by order of the king
and queen of the Belgians.
Tho watches, which bear Inset In
gold on tho cases the monogram "A

presented by King Albert and Queen
Elizabeth to soldiers who hnve spe
cially distinguished themselves and
also to prlzo winners of military com

Free use of both hands while tele

device, lately Invented, thnt holds tho

thnt it normally depresses the receiver

piece is pressed. TJie hook Is drawn
down and the bracket member moved
In the opposite direction when one

Photographs on Silver.
The process of printing photographs
on silver plates hns nt lust been per
fected, after years of experimenting.
The chemicals used In the process are
not kept from the public. Tho silver
plate on which a print has been made
has a special advantage over old
methods, in that tho impression re
mains after the surface hns been
ground down. Plate glass also Is said
o adapt Itself to this method.
