'DRAMA IN HUMBLE HOMES
romance Beckons to Playwrights
From Two-Story Dwellings, as One
Writer Has Pointed Out.
A big city ought to have a big heart
*for all its little homes. There they
istand, their own argument, two stories
hilgh, row upon row, block after block.
Two young people came and started
housekeeping. Rainbows bridge the
little space from the kitchen range to
'the potted ferns in the parlor window.
From the sidewalk you could see most
of the wedding presents. Gilt frames
there were, with pictures of a kind, a
table of barber shop onyx, a piano all
shiny facade--upright, of course, or it
would not be tolerated. You- might
Poke fun at the painted globe of the
lamp, but it stood there a glowering
aureole of the affection of the giver,
Who shall write the drama and the
.'romance of three meals a day, of wash
ing and ironing, of babies crying and
chuckling, of children going to school
land bringing home their maltreated
.arithmetics and their strange tales of
'dehumanized teachers? Who shall find
'a novel between the shiny brown
covers of the little account book that
.travels so often to the corner grocery
and the meat market, and who shall
read between the lines parental trepi
dation over the rising prices and more
months to fill?
Just look at the little tikes who live
in the house going off to Sunday
school! Do you believe in fairies? Out
of the front door comes a small prin
cess. You can tell that by the sash,
and the curls made around her moth
er's finger and the pictorial hat of
state occasions. The prince is re
splendent in the blacking at one end
and a real part in the hair at the
other; and the dog mopes on the oil
cloth in the cramped, dark hallway be
cause he cannot go with them.
Out Into the street mother love trav
'els after it has said good-by, for moth
er 'does not care much what becomes
of her If only her dreams come true
!n these her children. She stays at
home and works and grows pale, and
.her loving sacrifice is all too often
'thoughtlessly accepted. But some
times after many days, and perhaps
'n a far country, one rises up and calls
her blessed and comes home, and then'
she knows her reward even before
,God calls her and tells her; she did
!well.-Philadelphia Public Led'ger.
Coal Dust tor, Fuel.
Spurred on by prospects of shut
downs during the winter becauke of
the shortage of gas, manuficturers in
the Pittsburgh district have been con
'ducting experiments with coal duet,
which, they assert, prove that the dust
can be substituted for gas. The pro
cess is to blow the crushed coal into
the open-hearth furnaces by means of
This fuel, although not as cheap as
natural gas, is being furnished to mun
.ufacturing plants of the Pittsburgh
district considerably cheaper than con
' The Carnegie Steel company, realls
ing that there will be a shortage of
matural gas for manufacturing pur
poses this winter, has installed coal
dust fuel machinery at 24 of its 64
open-hearth furnaces in the Homestead
works and for eight of its 15 open
thearth furnaces at Clairton. By so
(doing the company will save 15,000,
000 cubic feet of natural gas daily at
Its Homestead works and 8,000,000
icubic feet at its Olairton -works, or a'
tiotal of 21,000,000 cubic feet daily.

It is not necessarily surprising; but
-of every given profession,' former or
;present, schoolteachers pyedominate
among the popular writers of today.
Among those who have deserted their
former work for the more congenial
'and profitable work of writipg are
James Lane A'llen, wvho was a public
suchool teacher and later a profess~r
~of Latin in a small college. Parker
JFilmore was a government teacher in
the Philippines. Frances Hodgson
Burnett was a country school teacher
eon a small salary when she began
writing stories, and rumor has it that
the stamps with which her first con
tributkons were sent away were
bought with money, obtained from
picking berries. She found a tim ly
land valued friend ins Charles J. Peter
son of Philadelphia, who paid her lib
erally for her writthg and gave her a
chance to get before the public.
New Stamp Issues.;
The number of new issues in the
stamp kingdom have kept earnest col
lectors on the alert over since the war
began. The British empire, with its
wumerous colonies, has issued count
less varieties of surcharged andl new
~additions. Even Turkey has issued
*a new set of five stamps to mark an
,"occupation of a part of E'gypt."
In Warsaw was what is known as
the Citizens' Post, and the Germans
have suppressed the issues of their
-atamps. As a consequence, these
labels are very rare; it is illegal to
Bell them in Germany, and they are re
garded as of enemy origin In France,
~England, ustsia and Italy, and con
Sequontly it is lillegal to imiport them.
