WOODPECKERS SPOILED POLE
A 150-foot flagstaff, made from a
fir tree on the playground of the
Ravenna grade school, Seattle, Wash.,
has had to be removed because wood
peckers riddled it with holes. It
was observed that while national col
ors were flying from the lofiy pole
the birds did not bother the trunk,
but as soon as the janitor removed
the colors woodpeckers came from
nearby woods and worked at it.
About 100 feet up the wood was
pecked out so much as to be discern
ible from the ground. When lowered
the pole broke at this point first. It
was -believed dangerous to pupils on
FOR FIGHTING FIRE!
Fire-fighting apparatus has been
imgro.xed upon to the extent of
quipping large trucks with individ
ual motor drives in each wheel and
raising or lowering the ladders by
air and hydraulic pressure, says Pop
ular Mechanics Magazine. The cur
rent for the driving motors is sup
plied from powerful storage batteries
which are suspended beneath the
frame of the vehicle. An air com
pressor, driven by a gasoline engine,
is incorporated in the outfit and fur
nishes the necessary elevating power
for the heavy ladders, the lowering
of these eing accomplished with the
aid of oil brakes, or compressed
cylinders The action of the ladders
is so simple that only one man is
required to operate them.

Three-year-old May had a pen
chant for clipping. Given a pair of
scissors she would leave nothing un
slit, and one day, in a frenzy of joy,
she cut her curly-haired baby broth

"Miss May!" shrieked the nurse,
"How dare you!"
"He cut them himself 1" pleaded
May, now on the verge of tears.

AS TO JAPANESE JOURNALISM

author estimates that the benefits

establishment of a public press bear

Wonderful progress has been
made in newspaper publishing with
in ten years, so that papers of a
decade ago look juvenile to the
Japanese today. The early papers
had no cable service and compara
tively few feature articles. Today
some Japanese dailies have a circu
lation of 750,000.
While most of the great newspa
pers of Japan were founded to pro
mote a cause, a theory, or the per
sonal fortunes of some public man,
under present conditions they must
prove successful as commercial un
dertakings if they are to survive and
wield influence. Newspapers are to

HAS GREAT PHYSICAL ENERGY
Experiments Have Shown Wonderful
Power That Is Exercised by
a Growing Squash.
It has been estimated that the
physical energy of the sap in a plant
is fourteen times that of the blood
in man. The Massachusetts Agricul
tural college has succeeded in meas
uring the power of a growing squash.
It was harnessed in iron, put in pris
on, and given a weight to lift The
squash was placed in a box in such a
way that it could grow only by push
ing upward and lifting a long lever
on which weights were suspended.
In three months the squash was lift
ing 5,000 pounds. How much more
it could have carried is not known,
for at this point the iron harness
cut into the rind, thus putting an
end to the experiment.
The squash weighed 47 pounds
and had a rind about three inches
thick. When opened it was found to
contain the usual number of seeds,
which were in perfect condition.
In the first stage of the experi
ment an iron bar an inch square was
used aa a lever, then a larger bar,
then a chestnut plank, then one of
seasoned white oak and finally a
chestnut block 5x6 inches and 9 feet

THOUGHTS TURNED TO VANITY
With the Passing of Years of Hard,
hip, Puritan- Women Began to
After the first years of hardship
were past and wealth began to pile
up, some of th puritanical tradi
tions weakened. There arose among
women of New England not only
the desire for fine dress, which
religion considered wicked, but, still
worse, according to the traditions,
also a love of cosmetics.
As early as 1686 it was said of a
Boston woman: "To hide her age,
she paints and to hide her paint
ing she dares hardly to laugh." One
of the ministers about that time
stated to his congregation: "At tlu1

be no such sight met with as the

But in newspapers began to ap
pear advertisements of washes for
the skin, face powders, face paints,
composition to take off "Superfluous
Hair," face patches and the like.
One of the leading cosmetics was
the wash-ball, a substitute for soap.
Perfumes were used not only on
the person, but also to scent linen
