A very large gold nugget Is said to Wiave been found the other day in a wild bee's nest In Australia.

Signs are not lacking here of the attempt being made by Germany to regain the place In the commercial world which she lost through the war. Goods now In the market In Belgian are often typically German. They are supposed to have been Introduced se cretly Into the country via neutrals such as Holland and the Scandinavian countries. One outstanding feature of these goods, however, is the disappearance of the German trademark, but the German cunning does not halt at this, The imperial crowns are now replaced by American eagles In an attempt to make the goods pass off as American, while others bear British and French trademarks. The names of German firms are completely absent, bat the manufacture Is too typically German to go undetected.

From a report Just Issued by the bureau for returning soldiers and sailors and marines In this city, It Is possible to get adequate Informa tion concerning what has been done In behalf of those of our returned de fenders who have sought employment and other aid. In the district of which Chicago la the headquarters, the plan of the bu reau for giving assistance to dis charged service men was formed by MaJ. Gen. Leonard Wood, who acts as the chairman of the headquarters com mlttee, and who from the first has taken personal interest In the work. The bureau was established last April and Its records today show that 43,345 service men have registered at bead quarters. Of this number 32,259 asked for assistance in obtaining employ ment At the present time the flies of the bureau show that only 2,250 men still remain on the "not hired1 list. This means that 94.3 per cent of the men seeking employment have found It through the Instrumentality of the bureau. Rumors Are Refuted. There have been rumors which some people have been busy In passing along to the effect that bureaus for Biding the soldiers and sailors to get re-established In civil life were not do ing adequate work. To a considerable extent this sort of thing, it is said, has been propaganda for no good pur pose. So far as the district which has Chicago for its headquarters Is con cerned, the attested records which show that 94.3 per cent of the appll cants have found work, speak for themselves. In the dally life of the bureau there Is much to be found of human Interest Of the 43,345 men who registered about 8,000 asked for assistance along lines other than that of employment. They wanted to secure vocational training, to be given information con cerning educational work, and In some cases there were requests for clothing and for temporary loans. Every case was met Out of the great number of men who applied at the bureau only 438 actually needed food. Between 3,000 and 4,000 of the men, did not know how to secure their bonuses from the government Every man was told how to go at it and every man got his money. Of the applicants for as sistance 3,500 have entered courses of vocational training. Much of Interest The activities of the bureau as they have gone on day by day are interest lng to watch. From the returned sol diers and sailors one gets the after- the-war viewpoint. The comments on the war and its aftermath and the conclusions which the men have drawn show almost invariably thoughtful consideration of the problems Involved, Col. Halstead Dorey, who served with the Third Division in France and who was four times wounded, is ac tively in charge of the Chicago bu reau. With him are MaJ. John S. Bonner, who formerly was a United States consul, and Llent. W. E. Stan ley, an aid de camp of MaJ. Qen. Leon ard Wood, and a son of former Gov ernor Stanley of Kansas. Difference of Cu3tom.

"It seems only natural that Finland, a land where women have had the vote for 18 years, and won It by their participation in quelling labor troubles like those which now assail the United States of Amer ica, should be one of the first portions of the dismembered Russian empire to get up a stable constitutional govern ment," says a bulletin from the Wash ington headquarters of the National Geographic society. This new member of the family of free nations is described In a com munication to the society by Baroness Alletta Korff as follows : "From an educational point of view the women in Finland have been very fortunate, as there are many excellent schools for girls and a number of co educational schools throughout the country which prepare students for the university examinations. Girls Admitted In 1878. "Girls were admitted to the univer sity in 1878, and, until the war inter vened, they not only attended lectures, but took part in all branches of uni versity life; they participated in all the celebrations and festivities, and were members of the various clubs and student organizations, in which they were on a footing of perfect equality with the men and frequently were elected to various official posi tions. After they were graduated from one of the several high schools or from the university there were many branches of work open to them. "They became teachers, even In the state school for boys; cashiers or bookkeepers In banks, clerks in state archives and in many branches of the civic administration. "There are really not enough edu cated men to meet the requirements of the country, and consequently the co operation of the women is a matter of vital Importance. It not Infrequent ly happened, in normal times, that even married women in comparatively good , circumstances, sought employ ment outside their homes. "Having thus isuch an excellent foundation to build upon, It is small wonder that the woman's movement soon found many active supporters. In 1863 the diet had accorded the mu nicipal vote to woman taxpayers living in the country, and in 1872 to women living in the towns, all of whom were also given the right to be elected members of certnln local self-governing bodies. In 1000 the woman social democrats Included the suffrage in their program, but the special activity for the suffrage began only in the year 1904, although In 1897 a petition had been officially presented to the diet at the request of the Finnish Woman's association. "The reason why so little was done in direct furtherance of the cause of woman suffrage between the years 1897 and 1904 is that just at that time Finland was passing through a severe political crisis. Women as Strike Managers. "After the outbreak of the October revolution in Russia (1905) a sympa thetic strike was declared in Finland, and several of the members of Uie cen tral committee elected by a mass meet ing to manage the details of the strike were women. "The first action taken by the com mittee was to close all the liquor shops, saloons and barrooms and to organize a volunteer police force to keep order. After the second day the markets were reopened and the strikers were not allowed to cut off the water supply. In short, the strike was managed in a most orderly and systematic way and no outrages of any sort were committed. "During the course of the strike nu merous deputations were sent with pe titions to the governor general, and in each deputation there were women members. TJius, even in moments of grave political danger and at timas when the utmost moderation and fore sight were needed, the Finns were not afraid to trust their women. "The very great interest that the women took In the elections may be gathered from the fact that in Helsing- fors, the capital, at the time of the second elections (in 1908), there were 19,640 woman voters and 15,516 men voters registered. It Is true that the majority of the women voted for men, as there were only 26 women elected in a house of 200, but one woman re ceived a larger number of votes than was given to any of the men candi dates of her party."
