DOGS ASSIST LONDON POLICE
Well-Tralned Animals Have Been
Found of Great Help in Appro.
henslon of Criminals.
The present wave of crime han given
an lIpetus lin (retit Ilitaln to the
training of dogs for police purposes.
Polce logs were used to assist In
bringing the brleaker of laws to justice
before the word pollee was ever known.
In older days bloodhounds were i1sed
on the borders of Scotland lin certain
districts infested by murderers and
robbers, and a tax was laid on the in
htbitants for mailntalning thein; also
thero was a law In Scotland that who
ever detiled entrance to one of these
dogs should be treated as an accessory
to the critne.
The training of these dogs calls for
a large atinount of paitlence, litelligence
and resource, fair removed frot the old
Idea of dog breaking, which was usual
ly to beat the aitini muercllessly Into
the observanne of a few set rules.

NEW TEMPLE OF THE GODS
Beautiful Spot in Southern Utah That
Is Off the Beaten Trail of
In the ordinary sense, no )art of
the United States properly can be
called ulinexplored. The new Temple
of the Gods, in southern Utah, is a
discovery as far as the average tour
Ist is concerned, though by no means
is It unexplored or "new" territory.
A bare 17 miles to the west runs the
well-traveled state highway from Salt
Lake City to the Grand canyon. An
old traIl branches off from the road
between Panultch and TroplIca, ii Ger
In the distance is Table Cliff
plateau, source of the Escalante riv

the Parla valley; at his feet the New
Temple itself, a veritable sunken gar
den, about one by three miles, of ex
quisite daintiness and beauty. Within
its tortuous wails of marl stand ob
elisks an( towers, castles and fort
resses, impressionistic statuaty and
ginat sculptures, kaleidoscopic in their
coloring and framed by the tufted yel
low pines and the red manzanita.
The startling color changes and
lighting effects of this great geological
stage are, indeed, its most extraordi
naltry feature. In the shifting rays of
sun and cloud, the tall, slender shafts
and ornamental turrets gleamni wlite,

BIG GUNS MUST BE MOBILE
Otherwise In Future Wars They Will

While the war was in progress new
military Inventions and improvements
were for obvious reasons kept secret
in America. Now, however, they are
beginning to leak out.
For exanple, there is a new 14-Inch
gun, which is called "pride of the
army." All big gins In future- will
be made mobile (on raIls or drawn by
gasoline tractors), because otherwise
they would invite their own destrue

TO TEACH BLIND TO DRAW
English Idea Is That Art May Help
the Sightless to Communicaute
With Oute!do Wor!d.
One of the many experiments of the
Royal Drawing society has been -to
teach people to draw by touch. The
ui1)1l is b1it.ldfolded atnd feels a simple
shape, like a hammer of a spade, and
draws it with his eyes open. An ad
vnneed plgtti has drawn the head of a
'eissical bust and the mask of Bee
These experiments fired Mr. 0. B.
Ablett, the director of the society, with
the idea of dravintg by the blind. IIe
has devised a iedlium which looks like
the frosteil stuff oi a matchbox made
liquid. by which the (raughtsman can
follow by touch what he has drawn
and correct or add to his work. So far
there have been no experiments with a
Mr. Alett does not claim for it more
than that a bilind man can draw the
plan or a design of something he
wishes to record and explain. A blind
gardener has been known to go into
ecstasies over the tinfolding shapes of
a plant, and the drawing of these
shapes. known to him by touch would
undoubtedly give him a form of es
theile pleasure. In any case, it would
increase his means of communicating
with the outside world.
A grent boon, if thei methiod is prne
