For the Children
Luncheon Time In
a Berlin School.
American boys and girls who carry
their luncheons to school or who live
near enough to go to their homes for
the midday meal may perhaps envy
the poor scholars of Berlin. Recently
in the German capital a plan of pro
viding a substantial luncheon for the
children of the public schools wus in
stituted. This luncheon is served free
of cost to those scholars whose par
ents are unable to pay. It has been
proved that the youngsters learn much
more rapidly when provided with
wholesome food. Fortunately the
school children of this country, as a
rule, have no need of such assistance,
but in the large cities like New York
and Chicago poverty bears heavily on
many youthful students, and they fre
quently go hungry.
A Scottish Halloween Custom.
Take three dishes, put clean water
in one, foul water in another and
leave the third empty. Blindfold a
person and lead him to the hearth
where the dishes are ranged. He or
she dips the left hand—if by chance
in the clean water, the future, husband
or wife will come to the bar of matri
mony without having previously been
married; if in the foul, a widow; if in
the empty dish, it foretells with equal
certainty no marriage at all. It is re
peated three times, and every time the
arrangement of the dishes is altered.
Robert Burns, the Scottish poet, hu
morously tells of such a test in verse:
In order on the clean hearthstone
The dishes three are rar..
And every time great care is shown
To have them duly changed.
And Uncle John, who wedded life
For decades did desire,
Because he got the empty thrice,
Threw all three in the fire
In wrath that night.
With merry songs these friendly folks
I wot did not grow weary,
And goblin tales and funny jokes—
Their sports were cheap and cheery.
Till buttered oat cakes, smoked and sweet.
Set all their jaws a-muving;
Then, when there was no more to eat,
To part it seemed behooving,
1 Full blythe that night.
For a Halloween Party.
It is doubtful if any festival of the
year offers better opportunity for orig
inal frolicsome parties than Hallow
een. Appropriate decorations are easily
made with Jack-o'-lanterns, autumn
leaves, strings of ears of corn or such
ghostly emblems as black cats and sii
htfuette witches mounted on broom
The refreshment problem is solved
with equal ease. Sweet, sirupy cider,
plenty of apples, nuts to roast and nuts
to crack, not to mention a panful of
crisp doughnuts, and. to top all off. a
batch of savory pumpkin pies—these
are only some of the edibles which at
once suggest themselves.
As for games to play. they, too, have
been set by custom to «i certain extent.
You may "bob" for apples In a tub of
water, you may pop corn, you may do
any one of a dozen things which your
parents will be sure to remember
about if they have ever taken part in
Winter Home of Deer.
The winter home of the American
red deer is very interesting. When the
snow begins to fly the leader of the
herd guides them to some sheltered
spot where food is plentiful. Here, as
the snow falls, they pack it down,
tramping: out a considerable space,
while about them the snow mounts
higher and higher until they cannot
get out if they would. From the main
opening, or "yard," as it is called,
tramped out paths lead to the nearby
trees and shrubbery which supply
•them with food.

Sanitary Furnace That Complete!/
Destroys Waste Matter.
One of the most perplexing problems
of sanitation is the disposal of refuse

such as filtration, chemical dissolution,
cesspools, etc., have boon tried out ex
tonsively with but problematical re

that fire is the only reliable agent for
the complete and sanitary destruction
of all waste matter. The accompany

has been adopted by the United States
government for use in army camps.
The illustration shows the device
partly broken away, so that the in

The furnace consists of a sheet steel
shell, with an outside jacket, and the
necessary draft Is admitted through
tho space between the jacket and the
shell. The pases from tho container
are drawn by the draft down through
a pipe at 3ne side of the incinerator
and fed to the bottom of tho grate;
thence they pass through the tiro, aid

any noxious products that may be

through tho fire the gases thus purified
are taken Into the stack and out to

disinfected automatically, and it al

In an interview he said: "For half
a century the value of vanadium as
an alloy in metals has been known to
scientific men all over the world. It
was through my investigations in
metallurgy that I discovered the prop
erties of vanadium in relation to oxy
gen gas. In tuberculosis the tissues
are attacked by the harmful bacteria,
which not. only eat them away, but
throw into the system their highly
poisonous toxin. Ry administering
vanadium compounds free oxygen is
released, which kills the poisons and
their causes and permits the blood to
perform its normal functions in the
growth and repair of the body. The
venadium compound rebuilds corpus
cles and thus forms tho basis of cure
for any wasting diseases. In the vana

When Lead Is Lightest.
In what form is lead lightest on the
scales? A British scientist has at
tempted to tell us how to make the
proof, but it isn't the easiest thing in
the world either to prepare the pound
of lead or place it in position for tho
proof. He says that making 1,000
small balls of the pound of lead the
weight remains the same, though the
surface is greatly increased. Then re
duce the small balls into 1,000,000
balls, with the surface enormously in
creased, but the balls weighing the one
pound in the scales. But this scientist
says that if these 1,000.000 shot parti
cles further are reduced to one twenty
thousandths of an inch each they will
rest in the atmosphere just where
they are placed, this for the reason
that that pressure of light from the
sun exactly overcomes the forces of
gravitation. To make the lead bits
smaller, however, the scientist says
that the sunlight seir'.os them and hurb
them into space.—Chicago Tribune.
Finding Temperature of Stars.
By aid of an apparatus devised by
Professor Charles Nordmann the heat
of the suns which we know as fixed
stars can be told by a comparison of
their spectra. The highest tempera
ture so far found is in one of tho
smaller stars of the constellation Tau
rus, whi'-h shows 27.000 decrees. The
temperature of our sun is less than
one-seventh of this, being only O.fiOS
degrees. Even that Is quite warm, for
the electric furnace is only (XSOO de- i

much hotter than our sun.
