William Allen White, editor of the Emporia (Kan.) Gazette, in an ed itorial in Judge, says: "The vast mzystery of atural things is so baffling tMat it is no wonder the muysteries of the supernaturot are neglected in these days of marvels.

Idiscoveries that a hundred years have developed. "These physical discoveries have changed men's creeds, revised men's attitude to God and man, rehuilt their institutions, made them braver be ause they could afford courage. made them kinder because they could afford kindness, and wiser because knowl edge of life was forced upon them by the civilization in which they live." HIS SAFETY DEPOSIT BOX Banker Would Have Put Would-Be Borrower With His Other Busi ness Securities. The great banker looked keenly at the young man. "So you are tempo rarily embarrassed, eh?" he asked I kindly. "I am sorry to say I am," said the young man, emboldened by his man ner. "How much do you want?" "Five hundred dollars would tide me over." "And what security can you offer?" "I can offer you," said the young man, impressively, "my own rersonal security." The old man arose with a slow smile and raised the lid of an iron bound chest which stood in a corner. "Will you get in here, please?" he said. "In there? Why?" "Because," was the reply, "this is the place in which I always keep my securties."-Kansas City Star. Steel Has Great Cutting Power. "High-speed steel" for cutting tools has been 'well known for years' and an improve6 form of this material has been introduced in Sheffield, Engled'. It is reported that this steel has : times the cutting power of any other in use. The composition is, It ap pears, still a secret, but it is said to be the first "high-speed steel" that can be hardened In cold water with out danger. It can also be hardened with oil or In a cold blast.I Tools made of it wear out much less rapidly and require much less: grinding than those of the older kinds of steel. They will also go on working at high temperature longer. But the makers themselves say that this steel does not by any means mark the final development of "high speed steel."-Washin~gtonl Star.

Strike Not New Weapon. That strikes are not of recent origin, but that they have, for many centuries, troubled the employer of labor, is said to be interestingly established by a record recently discovered in certain ancient Egyptian hieroglyphic tablets. These tablets were found in the exca vation of some ruins at Thebes, and cast a strong light upon the labor con ditions of the city 3,000 years ago. De tails are given of many interesting phases of a strike when a large num ber of workmen notified their employ ers they would dIscontinue work un less their back pay were promptly giv en them and a new wage scale ar ranged. Deleterious ImItation. "Don't you sometimes lose faith In human nature?" "Never," replied Senator Sorghum. "You can always depend on human nature for generous acti'ons and un prejudiced opinions. That refers, of course, to genuine human nature., which isn't always so easy to find. A good many people feel that they have to depend on human artifice and dis simulation. Human nature, my fr!r. is al? right. What makes the trouble .. so.et is the de-natured human.' ENTERTAINS. N. A. White entertained at ge Wednesday evening in honor t'> rs. J. H. Bramlett.
