To improve the human race Mrs. F.
F. Wiehwul Is planning to adopt sixty
children a year for tea years. She.
with her husband. John C. Wielaud of
Rensselaer Falls. N. )Y.. and Benja
min Frauklin of New1 York city, has
incorporated the Commonwealth under
the laws of -the state of New York.
Eight acres of land, a house, a mill
and a stream, with sufficient water
power to light a town, are in the pos
session of the corporation at Reusse
laer Falls. Here the adopted children
are to be "trained to right mental,
physical and manual effort as a prac
tical demonstration' of the laws of vibration."

exposition of her theories, prospects
and hopes at the.Sigu of the Green

All the sixty children who are to be
adopted are to have new names. Mrs
YVlelaud prefers to get possession of
babies, the younger the better. ' With

and ordinary, hand-mixed

difference you will first

Where a given job will re
quire, say, 15 gallons of or
dinary paint, the work can
often be done with 10 gal
Ions of Devoe; that's about
the. proportion usually.
The best of it is, fewer
gallons make a better job
