Curious Farms A very curious farm is that sit ale 1 in Torres straits, at the most northern point of Australia. It is I known as a “pearl farm” and cov ers about 5,000 square miles. As n ■ matter of fact, this farm is a pla teau covered with shallow water, and there are found more than 250 per sons irregularly employed in gather ing oysters, from which pears are r taken. These pearls are sold In Lon r don for almost a quarter of a mil lion dollars. There are a number of goldfish farms scattered over the glol e, but probably the best known are the gold -1 fish nurseries of Japan, where the fancy broeds are raised. However, some of the largest goldfish to bo found anywhere are bred in Indiana. Extreme care must be exercised in the breeding of these fish. Firs’ >OOIO the 1 reeding ponds, which arr considered the most important fea ’uro of the farm. There are pro emed from the wind and cold bj high embankments. This is all the care required, as far a3 tlie v.-e ither ■ is concerned, for, even In winter, th< 1 fish are far more hardy than one would suppose. The chief difficulty vrises in overhauling the creatures The young goldfish are of a whitish silvery color, and are not much dif ferent In appearance from the ordi nary minnow. Not until a year has •lapsed do they 1 egin to grow dark in tliis change they 1 econu- almos’ lack, after which their color as cutties a reddish-l rown tone, am finally takes on the beautiful gold of the mature fish. Feeding the fish is a very’ simple matter, lecause all of them arc given the same kind of food, toasted bread distril uted two or thrae times a wee?

Business Girl* On Top “The more you have to do. the more you get done.” And the Business and Professional Women’s Club seem to < be proving the adage, for they are so far ahead of the othtr canvass ing teams in this Y. W. C. A. Finance campaign that they have already re ; ported more than twice the total of : all the other team returns. For one : thing, they wont at it in a most 1 6- inesslikt and professional wav. They 1 adopted two bases of payments t( i urge on the friends approached—a $5 00 subscription or a payment of | <l.Off a moata. And so far, they i seem to have gotten everything they j went after. Miss Van Sant is the ; captain. But $4,738 have to bo raised and no sanill group of workers can do it alone. It will take the concerted ef forts of all ten teams to succeed in landing this amount, and tip to date some of the workers have not even reported at headquarters and receiv ed their cards. Mrs. Frank Hughes, President of the local association, and Mrs. Snow Alden as her only assistant, have made a house-to-house canvas in the Navy Yard and reported quite a generous sum, with more to come in —a sum. by the way which is more than twice the total of the team next nearest the top. Mrs. Linthicum’s workers have the next highest report, followed in or der by the teams of Mrs. Hointz. Mrs. Russell, Mrs. Parkinson and Mrs. Charles Munroe. Mrs. Bramble’s team is reported to be one of the iivest wires in the cam paign but returns have not been made to headquarters from this team yet Two other teams have not reported at all. With three hundred f;>! scrlbers to hear from and only one hundred ami fifty-seven reported to date, it is quite urgent that the canvassing be “speed ed up” in order that the Looks may 1 c closed before Easter. The Finance Secretary from (he National Board headquarters In New York. Miss Isabel Williamson, leaves Annapolis tomorrow evening, and the workers would be very grateful 1; all these interested in seeing the Y. W. C. A. campaign go “over the top" would not wait for the small band of volunteer, workers to call, but would ’phone in their subscription pledges or leave them at the “Y" and receive their cards later. There are discouragements to the workers in boing handicapped by hav ing so few volunteer workers for this canvassing. Can not those of you who are unable to help in this .way make it easier for these women by reporting your own contributions in dividually? Do you remember the Cheeryble Brothers in “Nicholas Nickleby” who were visited by a canvasser: “What has he come about, Tim?” said Mr. Cheeryble. “He is getting up a subscription for the widow and family of a man who was killed in the West India | Docks this morning, ,sir,” rejoined Tim. “He is a good creature,” said Mr. Cheeryble. with great earnestness.
