STROMBOLI IS

Constantly Active Volcano Is Re

ULIKE MAN-MADE LIGHTHOUSE

According to Ancients Strcmboli

Made Jove's Spears.

Geographic society from its heanhdiar
tees in Washington.
Vulcan's Forge of the Ancients.
"The situation of the Lipari grou{
on a map suggests the idela tha:t they
are the stars which Sicily saw from a
terria blow In cosmic tinmes n tihe
tip of her nose, inflicted by the cwrath
flu boot of Italy. Stromboli Is living,
up to this figurative excuse for her
elstence by keeping her fires hurning
night and day, and throwing her lurid
light on the Italian' and Sicilian hrl
son.
"On this mountain which rlses about
8,000 feet above sea level and about
6,000 above the floor of the sea, ac
cording to the ancients, was one of
the forges of Vulcan or which he
hammered out the scepter of Jove nnd t
the shields and spears of the gods. ()n
Its precipitous slopes Aeolus, the godC
at the winds, In company with his six
sons and six daughters was supllesed'l
to have held revels and in the cav
ernous sides of the mountain to have
confined the blasts.
"In medieval times the belching c
crater of Stromboll was be-lieved to be 1
the entrance of Purgatory.
"About a thousand feet from the i
top of Stromboll there is an opening
from which steam constantly issues t
ead hangs In a smoky-looking cloud
above the mountain. Ordinarily it is
pelble to climb up to the opening
and look over upon the black floor a
through the cracks of which smoke Is- t

NO GERMAN RULE
r FOR HELIGOLAND
Natives Demand Neutralization
or Return to Great Britain.
E POINT TO FUTURE MENACE
s Declare Island Might Again Be Used
h as Airplane or Submarine Base
e Against Allies-Two Years More
Will Be Required to Complete De.
struction of Fortifications and Im
provements Which Cost Germany
50,000.000 Gold Marks.
The ,,ople of I lhIih ,tland have sent
a iPtirint to th ,. I .a ue of Nations
asLh ig for neutralizatilon of the island
under Iprot,:tion of the league or re
annexaltion to treat Britain. They ex
Iprtss high hope that the league will
reli:eve them of Grnllll control. which
nunatves of 1tell.,land born under the
Brlttlih ilg declatre to be highly of
fensive and in vloia~,n of many of
the terbis of the agreement under
which England ceded the island to
Germany in 1S0 in exchange for Zan
zibar.
A cornintt, e of 60 residents of Hell
gol]ndl, corilinlng rtepresentatives of
narlons orga'nizations of the island,
visited Perlin. under the chairmaniship
of Au list Jtuchlenz. and conferred
with the allied disarmament commit
tee. in an elYort to correct what they
declare to be the great error of the
allies in lIving HIellgoland to Ger
many under the Versailles treaty.
Natives Encouraged.
Recently the natives of Heligoland
were much encouraged by the report
of Chief Engineer Savers of the Brit
ish admiralty, who, after investigating
the destruction of the fortifications of
HIellgoland, now in progress, was al
leged to have declared that the island,
exen after being dismantled, should
be taken from Germany, to prevent
Its possible refortiflcation for use as a
submarine and airplane base.
Th. dle(truction of the fort and na
val harbor of HIeligoland Is progress
ing under the direction of allied ofl
cers, but two years more will be re
quired for the complete destruction of
the fortiflcatlons and improvements
upon which Germany expended 50,000,
000 gold marks. The cost of destruc
tion, which Germany also has to bear,
is estimated at 4,000.000 gold marks.
Germans working on the dismantle
ment were sent from the mainland,
and the islanders say the German ot1
cials are endeavoring to colonize so
as to outvote the native population.
The native Hellgolanders, however.
hold the balance of power, having
elected six of the nine members eo
the island council.
Deported During War.
The civilians of Hellgoland were all
deported to Hamburg during the war
and were given papers showing them
to be of English birth. They were
watched as spies. In January and
February of 1917, when Cuxhaven,
Emden and Wilhelmshaven were
frozen In, the Hellgolanders say the
German submarines operated from Hel
Igoland alone. Consequently they in
sist that the base is so important to
the peace of the world that It should
not remain German territory.
The failure of Lord Salisbury, Brit
ish prime minister at the time Hell
goland was ceded to Germany, to
stipulate that Heligoland should not
be fortified by the Germans is pointed
out by the Islanders, who say the Brit
ish cfficials were so eager to acquire
Zanzibar and carry out Cecil Rhodes'
Cape to Calro scheme that they per
mitted a menace to the British navy
to be created.
LAUGH ON ALLIED CONTROL
Workl:men Find Guns After Fruitlee
Military Search.
Workmen officials at Vienna have
just turned the laugh on the allied
military controd commission In re
tallation for two searches made of
their co-operative bakery for arms.
The British officer In charge, unsatis
fled by a first Investigation of, the
premises, returned wltlh a large force
and opened a number of heavy cases.
He found them filled with brass tags
used in the distribution of bread.
Next day the workmen procured
warrants and went to the house of a
man named Novotny, a high ofclal of I
the Association of Officers of the
Front. They got five machine guns Is

TRULY WIZARD WITH PEN
Englishman of Queen Elizabeth's Time
Did Work That Probably Never
Was Equaled.
England at one time possessed a pt
man capable of rivaling Nessi Effendi
lMarkarem. an Arab now on a visit to
tairo with specimens of his art, In
eluding a grain of rice on which he
has written 100 words from the KKran.
EC Peter Bales, as we learn from Helne
f bheds Chronicle. put in the compass
of a silver penny more things than
d fill several ordinary pages, and pre
sented Queen Elizabeth with the man
iS uscript set in a gold ring and covered
re with a crystal, together with a magni
se' fying glass so powerful that the queen
m- could easily decipher the manuscript,
ny "hhich she held on her thumbnail and
coluimelded the same to the lords of
the council and the ambassadors.
nt Bales subsequently issued a chal
ns leuge "to the Englishmen and
ad strangers" to write, for a pen of gold
re- of £20_ value, in all kinds of hands,
*x- "best, straightest and fastest," and
Ill most kinds of ways. "a full, a mean,
ch a small, with line and without line;
he in a slow set hand, a mean facile
f.- hand, and a fast running hand." and
of further, to write "truest and speediest,
er most secretary and clearlike, from a
to man's mouth, reading, or pronouncing,
n- either English or Latin."
Another writing master, David John.
II- son. accepted the challange, adl the
of contest opened on Michaelmas day,
d, 15.5 before five judges and a hundred
Ip spectators. Bales was adjudged the
td winner in all three sections, though the
It- competition In "writing sundry kinds
ay of fair hands" proved a near thing for
te him. He gained points for the beauty
r- and "most authentic proportion" of
has "Roman hand," but Johnson scored
more marks in court hand and In "basa
id tard secretary" hand. Bales, being
rt then on his mettle, presented his "Mas
t- ter Piece," composed of "secretary and
,g Roman hand four ways varied," and
t 'offered to forego all his previous ad
1- vantages if Johnson could better it.
i, This proved impossible, so Bales car
d rled off the gold pen and had it paint
it ed and set up for his sign.-Manchee

*- Taming the Wild Flowers.
B- At a flower show held in New York
I- city, one naturally expects to see hot
house plants or at most such pampered I
f exotics as appear in cultivated gar.
s dens. At the recent annual show, bow
- ever, there was an exhibit that was a
' veritable wild garden, comprising ex- 1
c. clusively plants that are native to the
a New England fields and woodlands. 4
I- The developer of this garden, Edward
I, Gillett, has made a hobby of bringing ,
l. the wildings Into the dooryard, and I
0 teaching them to make themselves at I
i. home there. The result is highly grati- a
fying, for not only do a large number a
g of these plants lend themselves to c
t decorative and ornamental effects, but, t
quite apart from this, there is an ln
herent interest In the Indigenous flora
II that gives even a very modest plant .
r precedence In the affections of many e
2 of us over the most gorgeous visitants Jl
e from far-off lands. t
Now that Mr. Gillett has shown the c
* way, there will be many an amateur a
I who will not be satisfied unless a con
siderable corner of his garden Is given t
over to wild azaleas and laurel and ]
hepaticas and lady-slippers and tril- a
s Hums and sundry other modest but >
I winsome native flowers.-Pittsburgh

It Is reported tlkt the directors of
t the Forminlere Diamond Mines com.
I pany have suggested the inasugration
of an air service by seaplne, which
I would operate between the mines at
DJoko Punda, on the Kasal (a trlb
tary of the Congo) and Klnchassa, on
Sthe Congo-from which latter point
the railroad runs to Matadinoki. a
steamer port on the lower Congo. The
,.directors offer to defray the greater
part of the Initial cost of the scheme.
SIn the meantime a survey of the route
is being undertaken. The distance
from Kilnchassa to the mines is ap
proximately 800 miles, which could
be covered In two days, as contrasted

How Co-operation Changes.
Both the government and organised
labor of Germany have changed their
attitude toward consumers' co-opera
on,, with the result that, since the
downfall of the kalser, the member
ship of the leading co-operatives,
previously largely composed of profes
sIonal and business people, has become
overthelmlngly composed of working
people. The Production Soclety of
Hambarg, for instance, has among its
members 7,889 metal workers, 2,492
bricklayers, 2,084 tallors, 4,648 trane
port workers. 2,967 woodworkers, as
against 65 wrlters, 377 musicians and
one artist Government ocilals, previ
oausly forbidden to join co-operatives,
now avail themselves of the permils.

Proposal to Slightly Increase Prevall

r" the recent proposal of M. Frantz-Jour

na. shortage In Paris, would authorize the
e owners of buildings on avenues having
Ass a minimum of 20 meters to add an
al other floor. This would mean that the

tn- comparatively low cost obtain fifteen
ed thousand new places of abode-s safe
