Within a couple of months the American pub lic had howled them out of circulation. "The explanation was afterward made that the coins were disliked be cause the relief was inconveniently high, but the original outcry was against the design and only the de sign of these exquisite example· of die cutting.

A British diamond corporation has established a diamond-cdtting factory at brighton, England, and has ar ranged for instruction centers In vari ous parts of the country where dis abled soldiers can learn how to trans form rough diamonds Into finished gems. Before the war practically all of the British diamond output which means practically all of the world's output was shipped to the continent of Europe to be polished. Proprietors of the new factory already employ several hundred ex-fighters and claim to have proved that they can do as good work as the men on the continent who have devoted their lives to the diamond-cutting trade.—Popular Me chanics Magazine.

Γ RIGHTS AS "FREE CITIZEN' Russian Workman Who Believed He Owned a Part of tho Street Car Trade ^ While walking alone tho Nevsky Pwspect In Petrograd one morning wo aaw a line of street cars that had evidently been blocked γ in front of the foremost car wan a crowd of people, saya a writer In Russia. As we en tered the crowd we saw a man stand ing on the track and arguing with the motorman. The motorman was plead ing with him to get off the track so &at he could proceed with his car, and the man waa maintaining that Russia waa a free country, that he had Just as much right on the track as the car had, and that he did not Intend to move until ho was person ally Inclined to do so. ▲ number of soldiers looked on, but no one attempted to remove the man from the track, and neither the motor man nor the conductor attempted to move the car, but reeorted solely to moral suasion. The argument that finally Induced the man to move was to the effect that the motorman was a hard-working man and had to get to the car barn; the longer he was held there the longer it would take him to get through his work, and would not hla brother workman please get off the track so that he could get the car to the barn Τ With that the "free dtlsen" politely bowed, folded his arms and moved off the track, the crowd dispersed and the cars went on their way.

THSBE 18 NO SUBSTITUTE THAT CAN TAKE ÏT8 PLACE. ▲ glass of or earn y, clean milk la the beet tonio for boy β and girl·. It help* to make tbem active and sturdy, wltb energy for play and a cbance to grow into strong men and women. Have the children drink more milk. It is one of the best wsys to keep tbem well. It will not solve all the problems of bringing np a healthy family but it is one of tbe things to build on. Nothing has a greater iufluenoe upon the obild's health than food. Since pure milk is the most nearly perfect food, every child should have milk in his diet. Milk contains all tbe things that tbe body ne?ds In better proportions than any other food. Most obildren who have not enough milk are siokly and undersized. In countries where milk Is soaroe tbe in fant death rate is always high. It Is milk, not medloine, that children often need. At least three-fourths of a quart of milk a day should be given to every ohild. Children, large and small, need milk to build their bodies and to keep tbem well and strong. Milk, the child's best food, is also of value in the diet of tbe grown person. It is a safeguard which insures the things neoessary to keep tbe body vigorous and in good health. Soieatiata have proved through years of work that milk is tbe best food for children. It makes many other foods better and it is nearly a complete food in itself. Children cannot grow into healthy men and women unless the food they eat oontains five necessary things: tbe body building material (protein), fuel (carbo hydrate and fat), body regulators and bone builder· (mineral matter), and tbe essential growth subatanoes (vitamines). Children must eat foods containing the body building protein. When this substance Is eaten, it is changed Into muscles, blood, and other tissues of tbe body. It builds new muscles and re pairs the old. Tbe rapid growth of children makes it necessary that tbey have more protein for tbeir size than adults. Mothers cannot select* with safety, tbe body bnilding material (pro tein) from any food for tbeir children's meals, for numerous experiments bave shown that the protein in different foods varies in Its ability to build tbe body. A pound of protein from corn meal or wheat, for instance, laoks a great deal of being equal to a pound of protein from milk. While cereals bave a large amount of tbis body building material, only SO per cent of their weight oan be used by tbe body. When a pound of oereal protein Is eaten, 80 per cent Is used in building I the body and 70 per oent is wasted. Tbe story of milk protein is more happy, for 66 per cent of It Is used and only 35 per oent wasted. A combination of milk and oereal is even better. When they are eaten together, from 60 to 65 per cent of the entire weight of tbe pro tein of both is used to build tbe muscles and other parts of the body'. Milk great ly Improves tbe food value of cereals. Breakfast foods suoh as corn meal mush and all oereals served wltb milk give the boy and girl a good protein, of which a large part oan be used by their bodies. MIIK give· CQiiareu un cxoeuaui uuujr bollding protein, more easily digested by the yonng obild than the protein of other foods. It helps the obild to grow ioto well-developed manhood. ' In no better way can the child's health be made secure than by using milk in bis meals every day. Children need fuel foods to make them active and healtby. In play and In work tbe obild ezerolses all parts of bis body. This activity is made possible by the foel (oarbobydrate and fat) whiob i« in tbe food tbe obild eats. Fnel foods also help keep the body warm. Chil dren require more fnel aocordiog to tbeir aise than grown persons beoanse they are more active. Cereals are tbe obeapest of all foods, but when they are fed alone ohlldren •re pale and sickly and they do not grow. If milk Is added to the oereal, children are healtby and grow. There fore a combination of milk and oereal is the best fnel food for obildren. Tbe whole of the oereal grain is better than the one in wbioh tbe onter coat is re moved, for it oontalns more Iron wbioh makes rosy cheeks and good health. Milk and oereal, served together, make excellent food for all obildren, big and little. They give tbe ohlld's body fnel and help make him strong, healthy, and energetic. Poods give children mineral matter to use in building tbeir bones and teeth. Tbeir blood also needs mineral matter. All tbe body's work is regulated by tbe minerals contained in food. For this reason minerals bave been called tbe body regulators. Small children must have a great deal of mineral matter in tbeir foods, be cause tbeir bones grow quickly. Older children and grown persons must eat food containing minerals to keep tbeir bones and teeth in repair. Milk bas tbe best mineral oontent of any single food. Many foods oontain iome of tbe necessary minerals but there la no other food that contains all of them in such good proportion. Milk bas an abundant supply of lime, tbe moat largely uaed mineral in the Jiuild iog of bones and teeth. Milk is necessary in tbe diet of tbe obild beoause of its excellent mineral content. Beoause most oereals do not have nearly so good mineral oontent as milk, the addition of skimmilk to them Improves tbeir food value. Of oourse, akimmlik Is not so good a food as whole milk as it has less fat, but It does oon tain tbe same minerals. Since the outer part of the oereal grain contains iron, milk, which is low In iron, Is improved by using It with the whole oereil. If obildren are to be strong and healtby, they must have milk in their meals to give tbeir bodies tbe essential minerals. Children grow rapidly If they are well and their foods oontain the growth sub stanoes, vitamine·, in addition to pro tein, minerals, and tbe fuel foods. Vita mine· are essential to growth and health. Without tbem obildren are pale, sickly, end stunted. One vitamine dissolves In water. It is found in the whole grain, tbe leavei of: plants nod In milk. When the ohlld's foods do not oontali enough of this vitamine, the obild stop< growing and his health is poor. Tbi food eaten by the people of China and Japan does not oontain enough of thli growth material and as a result tbej enfler from the bed beri disease. Mo«i of their meals are of fish and poliahec rioe, both of them laoking In the watei aoiuble vitamine. The other vitamine dissolves in fat It Is found in the leaves of plants, li small amounts In the seeds, and In ι few of the animal fats. If tbe obHd ι foodado not bave enflaient amounts ο this growth material, he stops growinj end Is siokly. Children oaanot be wel and ham ■ do not eat foods wltl enough of tbe fat aoiuble vitamin·.

The housewife will find that milk will help In making attractive dishes from canned or freah vegetables. Milk com bined with vegetables makes excellent soup·, creamed and scalloped dishes, souffles, and oroquettea. Creamed toaat and gravies also require the use of milk. Healthful, nutritious desserts for chil dren usually have milk for their founda tion. Ice oream, oorn starch, bread, tapioca, and junket puddlnga oontaln much milk. 8klmmllk oan be used in cooking and as a drink. It oannot take the place of whole milk entirely aa it doea not con tain enough of the fat aolnble growth substance. However, the minérale and body building material are the same as those In whole milk. Buttermilk and sour milk oan be uaed in baking with ezoellent results. But termilk is a delicious drink for the older obild and the grown person. It is espe cially healthful. Cheeae dishes furnish the adult with the body building pro tein of milk. Of oourse, those belong largely in the diet of the older child and the grown person. Milk is a safeguard In their diet and they oan use many milk produots. To the young child, how ever, milk is a necessity If he is to have proper health, strength, and energy.— Wiaconain College of Agrloulture. The Depth of Planting Potatoes. Ridge culture of the potato is uni versally practiced in Aroostook County. A few use a rather low broad ridge but probably 90 per oent of the farmers prao tioe what might be oalled extreme ridge oulture. The ridging begins at the time of planting. The planter most used ha« a plow so constructed that It makea little more than a mark on the soil unless it is very light, instead of a furrow, the disks at the rear of the machine cover the leed by throwing up a ridge perbapa fonr inches high so that the seed at the very start ia practically on a level with the surface between the rows. A few farmer· make a praotlce of going over the field with a weeder and aomewhat flattening the ridge but the number that do this is comparatively few. The method most usually followed is to go between the rows with the cultivator perhaps 8 or tO days after the potatoes are planted and tben aa aoon as they be gin to break the ground go over with the horse-hoe and bury them up also burying the weeds at the same time and thereby raising the height of the ridge. This kind of cultivation is continued until the tops are too large to past through without injury. By this time an A shaped ridge has been formed about 12 to 15 inches high, and, of oonrse, the surface between the rows has been dropped by the continual scraping up of tbe soil so that the tubers growing in the ridge are considerably above the surface between tbe rows. In tbe yeara, 1907, 1908 and 1909 tbe Maine Agricultural Experiment Station compared these two methods of oulture on Mr. John Watson'a farm in Houlton. Tbe ylelda with tbe broad low ridge were 333, 301 and 216 buahela per aore with au average of 283 bushels for tbe three years. With the high narrow ridge tbe yields were slightly less each year being at tbe rate of 326, 291 and 204 bushels with an average yield of 273 bushels per aore. The difference· while constant are within experimental error. It seemed probable that the lees rain fall and not infrequent drontha ex perienced in tbe more southern parts of the state might prove unfavorable to growing potatoes with the shallow plant ing, high ridge method of cultivation. With tbe purobase of Hlgbmoor Farm tbe Station began an experiment com paring shallow planting with high ridge oulivation, somewhat deeper planting with a lower, broader ridge, and deep planting with as level cultivation as nnntlcthU. The shallow planted potatoes at High moor Farm were planted aa deeply (2 inches) aa tbe broad low ridge ones at Hooltoo. Tbe medium planted were at a deptb of S 1-2 inobea and tbe deep planted were 5 Inobea below tbe level. Tbe time required for planting was tbe aame on all of tbe plot*. Tbe plant ing, spraying and barveating were tbe aame for all of the plota with the excep tion tbat on tbe deep planted It waa neoeaaary to nae four boraea on tbe dig ger. Tbe deep planted reqalred leaa bonra of cultivation; tbe medium planted tbe moat. A man and team for oultlva tion were on tbe deep plota 26 houra, on the medium 39 bonra and on tbe aballow 35 boura per aore. There waa not-much difference in tbe difficoltlea of digging between the abal low planted and tbe medlnm planted. Tbe deep planted required four horaea inatead of two on tbe digger, and a good deal of oare waa neceaaary to be aure tbat the digger waa auffioiently deep in tbe ground to prevent outting tbe tubera. Tbe Qreen Mountains averaged 360 buahela per acre for tbe deep planted, 385 for tbe medium planted and 325 buabela per aore for tbe aballow planted blgh ridge. Iriah Cobbler baa never yielded well at Higbmoor Farm. Tbe yielda averaged M3 for tbe deep planted, 166 for tbe medium planted and 139 buahela per aore for tbe aballow planted. Tbe deep planted and medium planted gave approximately the aame yielda at Higbmoor Farm with the advantage in favor of the medium planked. The me dium planted and medium ridge gave oonaiderably better yielda at Higbmoor Farm than theahallow planted and blgb ridge. Tbe medlnm ridge ia cultivated aa cheaply aa tbe shallow ridge and la harveated nearly aa eaally. The deep planted are cultivated at leaa ooat than either of tbe other two metboda but are far more difficult to harvest. Tbe results indicate that for Aroos took County tbe shallow planted blgb ridge la well auited to the climatio con ditions. And they also dearly Indioate tbat for tbè lower oountiea In the state with their leaser rainfall during the growing season, the medlnm planted with the broad low ridge cultivation is «referable to either of the others.— bas.

The date for the Chautauqua tbii next sommer baa been assigned and the members of the committee are especially pleased with the atroog and appropriate programme which haa been arranged. Id addition to tbe great feast of music, entertainment and leotures special efforts bave been made by tbe management to make the Junior Chautauqua bigger than ever. The Cbantanqua will be held daring the five days beginning July 22, and aa this is to be Reconstruction Tear for tbe Chautanqna tbe program has been pre pared so as to aid in every possible way a wise and just solution of tbe great problems which are to be met. It is understood that It has been the aim of the management to make the key note of tbe program a vital, virile American ism, and it is expected that as a result tbe Chautauqua will be even more val uable during these uncertain and trying times of readjustment than it was during tbe war. BIG FEATUBES IN MUSIC. It is aaid that in its mnsioal numbers tbe management has suoceeded In maintaining tbe usual high standard of Its attractions. Evidence of this is to be found in the fact that tbey have been able to seoure as a very special treat, Tbe Famous Banda Rossa, which became widely known and will be long re membered from Its notable transconti nental tour a few years ago. The leader of tbe band will be Alberto Tasca, and one nf the special features, which is said to be exceptionally good, will be tbe Saxapbone Wizard,—the man who plays all tbe saxaphonea made, starting from tbe very smallest one up to tbe one which weighs 100 pounds. The members of the band will wear tbe distinctly attractive Banda Roasa costumes con sisting of red blouses and caps, white trousers and shoes, and green ties and sashes. Another notable feature will be tbe Tbereaa Sbeeban Concert Company, in cluding Miss Theresa Sbeeban, known as tbe Inimitable Irish entertainer; Miss Ethel McPhee, soprano soloist; and Miss Vivian Des Jardine, violinist. Miss Sbeehan and her company bas long enjoyed a most enviable reputation in tbe Cbaotanqua world. Tbey will give a high grade program, and something wbicbVill be enjoyed by everybody. Charles T. Orilley, one of the best known and most successful interpreters of dramatic and bumorons literature on the American platform, assisted by bis daughter, Virginia Aklen Orilley, in solos on the Irish harp, will give a pro gram that Is a blending of literature and music in a unique and thoroughly de lightful manner. The Russian String Quartet with Leon Weltman will bring tbe Chautauqua a delightful program of instrumental music. Characteristic Russian melodies will be featured and tbe whole presenta tion will be such as to commend itself to tbe most exaoting music lover in tbe community. Laat but not least Is the group of Little Wonder Juveniles. There is nothing more pleaaing than to see children "per form" upon tbe platform, and the Chautauqua is bringing a group of five talented youngsters who are real artists in music and entertainment. Nothing short of a real treat Is in store for those who are privileged to hear this company. LECTURES ESPECIALLY STB0NG. That the Chautauqua management has been doing its utmost to make ita mes sage to the people and ita contribution to tbe nation in these trying timea as effective aa possible is evidenced by tbe unaaaaily atrong groap_of leotnrers whloh have been aeoored. The keynote of tbp week will be strnok by a notable lecture on American iam. Aa a result of the war America has achieved a prominenoe in world affaira which makes it essential that she take atepa to maintain the supremacy which ia now bera. How tbla can aod should be done ia to be the theme of one of the moat important lectures of the week. Then there will be Tbomaa Brooke Fletcher, Editor of the Marion, Ohio, "Tribune". Mr. Fletober has a national reputation aa tbe foremoat dramatio orator in America. He la a favorite with buainesa men tbe oountry over. He is a favorite with ohildren. In fact, he ia a favorite with everybody. More than a million people in tbe United States and Canada have paid to bear Brooka Fletcher again and again. His subject will probably be "Community Dead Heads." There will be Albert Edward Wlggam, one of tbe foremost leotnrers on popular soience subjects in America. He has been called "The Apostle of the New Efficiency" beoanse of his unique treat ment of the ever interesting subjeot of Beredity. His subject will be "Climb ing the Family Tree." The leotnrer who will prove of as great interest as any is F. E. Tillemont-Thom anon, a renowned English leotnrer, scientist and business man. He will make a special trip to America to bring to Commnnity Chautauqua audiences this summer a most timely and interest ing message. His anbjeot will be "Echoes of the German Revolution." He will give accurate deacriptiona of what baaneen goingon in Germany siooe the eleventh of laat November, and from bis extraordinary knowledge of Germany and tbe Germane he is able authorita tively to atate what we may expect of Germany in the fnture. All in all a great treat ia in at ore for everybody. It Is planned to put the sea son tickets on aale at least a month in advance and It will greatly assist the local committee if every one will plan to «et their tlokets early.

HOW A MAN PICKS A WIFE 8om· Conclusions That Have Been Reached by the Registrar at th· Boston City Hall. Edward W. McGlennen, registrar at the Boston city hull since 1900, who keeps record of that city's marriages, has found in his study of the subject of selection that association deter mines a man's course in the selection of his wife, and when you have chosen your vocation you have automatically chosen your lifemate at the same time, observes the New York Herald. Mr. McGlennen has found that tailors mar ry talloresses, longshoremen choose waitresses, many employees and clerks marry stenographers, while profession al men more often pick their wives from the girls in society in which they move. After eighteen years of dally obser vation of the way and habits of pro spective homemakers, Mr. McGlennen has come to the conclusion that prox imity is the chief determining factor in a man's choice of a wife. In the long and voluminous marriage records the various averages of the different vocations show that chauf feurs and cooks are attracted by do mestics, while tailors, dressmakers and milliners Incline toward still closer re lationship. Salvation Army men choose a Salvation Army lassie, the sea cap tain picks a good housekeeper and home body, while seamen generally fall in love, when ashore, with wait resses who serve their meals. Mr. Mc Glennen believes that good looks and good clothes are not such an Impor tant factor as generally believed—It Is all a matter of environment Th»· telephone operator Is a favorite with the soldier, also the nurse who min isters to him whén wounded. Lunch room proprietors more often marry Iheir cashiers, and so it goes on. What puzzles Mr. McGlennen, how ever, is why a muriner chose a dent ist's assistant as life mate and how a street car conductor came to pick out an actress for his wife. These are exceptions to the general rule. Lied in Attempt to Save Pet Determined efforts by ladles of blgli social position to smuggle pet dog.® without license Into England were re cently described to a representative at the diseases of animals' branch of the board of agriculture, London. It takes the combined intelligence of Scotland Yard and the customs officials to out maneuver some dog lovers.

On land lng the lady, in reply to the usua' question, said she had nothing to dc clare. "No dog, madame?" "Certain ly not." "Then," said her questioner "I must send for the female searche; to have your statement verified." "Ii that case," said the lady, "if you wll allow me a couple of minutes by my self Γ11 produce my little dog." Whic! she did. Making Themselves at Home.

Quite a numbe of them were entertained at privât, houses—free to go when they please in the daytime, free to become men hers of the family when they had tire themselves with sightseeing. I ovei heard two woald-be hostesses talk in of their recent guests. "Mine, toe were delightful," one said; "so happ and so perfect In tbelr manner.

Some people have to be entertain*' all the time. They must have soin· body to put Interest Into life for thei Hours spent alone are eternities. WU folks keep quiet about this. Only th rash confess to the world how empt their souls really are. They do It b cause they have no Idea what It a' means. There will need to be eterni. vaudeville or some other show to mak them at all comfortable. And th hours spent add nothing to their pe sonal growth. It's not what enters th ears that adds to life. That may havi little or no meaning. It's what th mind appropriates and remakes wltl. In itself that adds to life. And it's thi ability to keep the mind constantly employed that makes the hours fly It's the same ability to use the mine that will fill eternity with pleasure. The 8word of Prlnee Maurice.
