Slosson, the noted veteran of thirty

Before the match many experts
thought that Slosson' s long experience,

victor's purse. But they did not make
enough allowance for the wonderful
nerve and coolness of the youngster.

THE GLOBE OF MARS." :
What We Kiowto sjCertlntr. A1m.
, .; pianet.
We know that the years of Mars, '' al
most .twice 'as long" as ours,' are com';
iMweVl of Gsi. days," 23 hours, ".30 minutes
and 41 seconds, and surely nothing
need be more precise. We know also
that the duration of day aiid night, or.
to ppeak more exactly, that of the diur
nal rotation. Is 24 hours, 37 minutes
and 22 05-100 seconds. , We know fur
ther that since the inclination of Its
axis of rotation Is 24 degrees 02
minutes the seasons there are sensibly
of the sanie" Intensity as upon our
planet. Besides, with bur own eyes
we see the polar snows melt during the
summer and reappear In the winter.
Furthermore, we know very exactly
the " geography of . this uelghborlu
globe, and in this respect there Is hard;
ly any more mystery for us than In its
calendar. We have observations and
detailed drawings of Its continents, its
seas, its streams. Its Islands, its capes,
the mouths of Its great rivers and its
canals there Is not, one might say, a
single point upon the surface of Mars
which has not been the object of per
petual study on the part of various ob
Still further, we know also the deu
sity of this globe as well as the In
tensity of gravity upon its surface, and
these ace two dominating elements in
the organization of Its living residents
The -whole globe of Mars, which has a
diameter of . about . half that of the
earth (52S thousandths G.72S kilome
ters or 4.281 miles) weighs only 103
thousandths of our globe, or G23.5S1
qulntlllions of kilograms. The density
of the materials which compose Mars
is Inferior to that of the substances
which compose the earth ia the propor
tion of 711 to 1.000. If. we compare
this density wilh that of water, for
example, we fmd that the mean density
of. the earth Is five and a half. times
(5.50 greater than that of water, or.
in other words, our globe wt-ighs live
and one-half times as nun-li as a globe
of water of the same dimensions. But
Mars weighs not puite four times (3.01)
as much as a globe of water of its di:
mentions. Its component substances
are, then, less deuse than ours.
Once more, gravity there is much
less iowerful than upon the earth. In
the proportion of 370 to 1,000 that. is
to say that a mass of 1,000 pounds
transported to Mars and there weighed
by a spring balance would .weigh only
S7G pounds and that a man weighing
1G0 pounds upon the earth would weigh
onlj1 GO pounds upon the surface of the
neighboring globe. Here we have ab

Beards anil rial J Heads.
If you do not want to be bald refrain
from growing a beard. It is a simple
recipe for keeping your hnir which a
physician of eminence offers. Ills the
ory is that men who are bald owe their
affliction most often to the wearing of
beards. He does not pretend to say
why this should be so, but merely di
rects the notice of any observant per
son to tho fact that nearly every man
wno rejoices In a luxuriant growth of
whiskers has a deficiency of hair on the
top of his bead. On the other baud,
most' clean shaven men possess good
heads of hair. Many men who are
clean shaven in earlier life permit their
beards to grow when they have reach
ed middle age. In consequence (if the
theory of the physician quoted be cor
rect), the hair begins to fall off the top
of their heads. It is a fatal mistake.
The frequent and regular use of a ra
zor is the best Insurance against bald
ness. It would seem, says this physi
cian, as If nature could provide for the
support and nourishment of only a cer
tain amount of hair. If a beard is
grown, tne crop on tne scaip sutlers.

An 'Interesting Narrative
of Great Tenor's Early
Days In Italy How
He Obtained His Start.
His Debut and His
Three . Masters.
By ENRICO CARUSO.
, When I am asked concerning the
Italian method of singing, my ideas on
the" subject and the names of the mas
ters with whom I studied I am at a
loss to give a satisfactory reply.
I am a Neapolitan. In our country
we do not talk of methods. We have
bel canto. That is our tradition," the
tradition of the great ones who have
left their memories- in our hearts. ; We
sing because we are a singing; nation.
Our. parents sing as they work. We
live out Cn the open air, under the blue
skies. When the lungs are filled with
pure air and sunshine It seems to me
that this air and sunshine pecome song.
Our children, sling In the "street with the
voices of angels; pur peasants lf t their
voices In melodious chorals In the vine
yards and olive groves." When' a child
Is born and as he grows begins to show
he has a voice the father and mother
are filled k with joy. My father, had a
deep basso, my mother a beautiful,
rich contralto, my little sister, a voice
like a flute. When I was a lad I had a
voice combining the qualities of .my
mother and sister, and because of this
voice I was the klng.of our little home.
My first teacher was the, priest In the
little private school to which I was
sent. He was a good musician, and.be
took extraordinary pains to form my
One day the bishop came, and I was
called upon to sing a solo. He was so
pleased that a short time afterward I
received an offer to Join. the choir of
one of the big churches of Naples. . It
was a great event. I sang at. benedic
tion. That eveningat vesper .hour I
learned for the first time that the pub
lic was to be my, teacher.
Wheu once In awhile, after a great,
solo, I would hear smothered exclama
tions of approval, then indeed I was
raised to delirium of Joy. in this way
the public became mj teacher. From

voice and was, to my dismay, destined
to enter a warehouse, when my. voice
suddenly returned, and I at once began
lessons with Signor Vergine, a great
exponent of bel canto. I remained with
him three years, and then, just as: I
was about to make my debut, I was
forced to Join the army. - It was a ter
rible blow. We were too poor to pur
chase a substitute. I wept continually.
One day I received an order giving me
my freedom. . My brother had offered
to sacrifice himself In my place that I
might become an artist.
I then made my first debut at Naples
in an opera composed and given to an
Invited audience ; by ; an "r enormously
wealthy Italian nobleman. It was
there I met my third and last. master,
the "press." The' morning following
the representation the critics of ihe
newspapers spoke of the opera and the
new tenor. I read all that .was written
of me with the greatest re'spect and at
tention. I repeated to myself when a
certain fault was noted, "That Is true."
That was the beginning of my studies
under, the criticisms , of -the press. A
feu". weeks later I, made my debut.be-;

made It a habit of sending at once for

read over and over every criticism, fa

. Biff Prnt Ia Trees.
Get right, away froui the Idea that Ims
cause trees do not grow and ripen as
fast as other crops forestry in the
wood lot will iK'uefit future genera
tions only. Most forest trees will
reach commercial1 size well within an
ordinary lifetime and many of them
lu a much shorter period. Did It ever
occur, to. you , that, this country offers
today few Investments which equal In
safety and in net returns the thrifty

tree yields is hs annual growth. That

lot each year will yield more money for
the .same effort, than any other , work
on the farm. This, is a strong state
ment, but the facts bear It out. Farm,
Stay With It.
The first day mother sent me, to
school I went home at recess, thinking
school was out. . As I have, grown older
I find that a whole lot of people did the
same thing, and the sad part of the af
fair Is that too many of us never went
back. In life be careful that you don't
go home at recess. If you start to learn
a trade or profession, stay by it ami
master it. Don't chase away at recess.
If you have a business, attend to, it.
Don't go home at recess. This going
home at recess has sent., many a busi
ness man into bankruptcy.. It has
caused mothers' tears . to flow and
mother hearts to ache. . It has made
crusty old bachelors and sour old maids.
It has filled worlds with Ignorance and
made barren deserts of fertile plains,
Going home at recess means that you
have fallen asleep at. the switch and
your train has plunged into tho ditch.
Always stay until school Is out. OS'
