ABD10 WHAT TO VLADIVOSTOK Development of Russian City Is decked by Great Conflict. CITY OF EXTREME CONTRASTS Terminal City of Longest Railroad in the World, Place Where East Literal ly Meets WestWas on the Way to Rival San Francisco in Population and BeautyLiving Is Extremely Dear and Human Life Is Held Very Cheap. "On the eight-day trip from Moscow she had told fellow passengers on the trans-Siberian railway, of an English man who was disappointed because he spent ten days in New York and had not seen an Indian. "Just before alighting at the termi nal city of the longest railroad in the world she inquired, 'Is there much dan ger from wolves in Vladivostok?' "Not only is there about as much danger of meeting a wolf in Vladi rostok as there would be of encoun tering a mountain lion in San Francis co but there are other likenesses be tween these port cities, especially if the Vladivostok of just before the war be compared with the San Francisco of its earlier, Barbary Coast days,".ac- cording to a bulletin from Washing ton (D. C.) headquarters of the Na tional Geographic society. Compared to San Francisco. "The city of the Golden Horn is younger than our city of the Golaen Gate, having been founded in 1860. Had its normal development not been interrupted by the war, its hinterland beset by soviet forces, unsettled by rapid changes of government and now reported to be left without any be cause of the attacking Chita troops, Vladivostok might soon have rivaled our own coast city in population and beauty. 'Living is extremely dear,' said the Baedeker of 1912 and of the Vladi vostok of 1922 it might be said with equal truth that human life is very cheap. The city warranted a Bret Harte's attention for its bizarre and colorful atmosphere during war times, but for the variety of peoples who made up its transitory population it outdid any earlier'experiences of our own frontier towns. Noi'mally it has fewer than 50,000 people by 1918 its residents numbered nearly 200,000. The influx was made up of human gra dations between typhus victims and American millionaires. "Even in ordinary times Vladivos tok is a city of extreme contrasts, as might be expected' of a place where Chinaman and Russian compete, where East literally meets West. Alighting at the European-looking station, from one of the most luxurious trains of any, continent (1918 was the last year you could have done that) you saw trailers, automobiles, droshkies, carriages and jinrikishas. Russians, Japanese, Chi nese and Koreans predominated, with many Europeans, occasional Americans and Africans. "A tongue of hilly land thrust out into a land-locked bay constitutes the site of 'The Mistress of the East.' The architecture maintains the European note struck by the station which makes the presence of Oriental peo ple, conveyances and customs all the more exotic. You no sooner accus tomed yourself to the dreary routine of bazaar buying, flourishing lotteries, and Babel of tongues than you en countered the more familiar telegraph office, motion picture theater, museum, club and university. You may dodge a European racing car, under an Amer ican electric light, and run plump into a coolie burden bearer despite the warning cries of a Russian policeman. Breaks All Civic Rules. "Small wonder living was extremely dear in the old days and is an acute problem now, since the city subsisted formerly on supplies from China and Japan, Europe and even America. Its growth seems due to some inexplicable exception that proves the rule that a city, to succeed, should be self-sustain ing, interchange products with the country around it, be thrifty, cultivate civic consciousness, be well governed, and possess some racial, cultural, or patriotic unity. It owed its commerce to the fact that it was the most nearly ice-free port of Siberia, by which vir tue it became the terminus of the trans-Siberian railway, and to the mil itary and naval establishments main tained by the government of the czar. "Now its patron government has dis appeared, its railway has been cut in to units by the national entities along its course, and Bolshevism looms as an economic as well as a passenger bar rier along the far-flung rail ribbon that once extended some 7,000 mileS" to Calais. "In the way of exports, in its palm iest days, it had nothing more impor tant to give the world than sea-cab bage, trepang and a fungus gathered from decayed wood, for all of which China was its principal customer. Tre pang is the dried body of the holothu rian, more commonly known as the sea slug, more appealing to the curiosity than to the palate of the occidental.

Electricity has conquered one-third of the entire cultivated area of Swe den, according to the latest official reports. If Sweden continues electrifying at the present rate, it will only be a few years till almost the whole coun try will be run by electricity. Most of the farms within the elec trified" area are now'tappTfig the new source of energy* and nearly all the power used in the daily labor on these farms is derived from the high-power lines which span whole sections of the country. Large power stations deliver most of the electric energy used in the rural communities but in many places the farmers themselves have installed tur bines and built private power stations, harnessing for this purpose swift streams and small waterfalls on their own properties. Those enterprises, however, are generally co-operative. A great deal of the most arduous farm labor is performed by electrically driven machinery at a cost far below the cost of machines propelled by steam or horsepower, or of hand labor. Water* is pumped for cattle by elec tricity, threshing machines are driven by electric current, timber is sawed by motor power, and farm hands are no longer ordered to cut firewood by hand because it is cheaper to have even that labor done by electricity. Candles have almost disappeared. In many cases grain is dried and cleaned by being passed through elec trically driven hot-air fanning ma chines. It is not uncommon to find on the larger estates electric elevators which lift entire wagon loads of hay or grain and dump them where desired in the barns. One Swedish estate owner has in stalled an electrically operated irriga tion system whereby a large field can be watered in times of drought. It is now only a matter of a short time till plows and harrows will be propelled by electric power.

AX FOR FOREST GIANTS Three Huge Oak Trees.Had to Give Way to Business Rush. Three oak trees, estimated to be more than 200 years old, have beet cut down in the business district of Val paraiso, Ind., to make way for a new business building. The three trees are fully J5 feet tall and three feet through at the base. It is estimated the trees contain 18 cords of wood and fence posts. Many years ago hundreds of these giants of the forest stood on the present site of the city, but they have given way to the progress of civilization. At the Court House square, in the center of the business district, four of the trees remain. Villa Asks More Land for His Ranch. An extension to his 200,000-acre farm near Torreon, Mexico, has been asked by Francisco Villa, former rebel chieftain, in a petition to the govern ment. Villa has about 500 employees and says his land is not extensive enough. Villa and his men are ready to fight for Mexico, he says in the petition. False Teeth in Stomach.

HAD TOPS AND MARBLES ALSO If Children of 2,000 Years Ago Could Come to Life They Could Play in Complete Understanding With Children Today.' London.Do you know London's 2,- 000-year-old toy shop? Go through the terra cotta room in the British mu seum and ask the kind, fatherly look ing attendant to point it out to you. It goes right to the heart. Here the most human little comedy was played by three little girls and a small boy. They came wandering in, rather tired of the Pharaohs, thinking, no doubt, more about eating than an tiquity. Father, too, looked bored. His gen eral knowledge evidently had given out. Suddenly they saw something which spoke to them down 20 cen turies they saw dolls and little horses and carts, tiny bronze chairs for a doll's house, little animals which might have been saved from last year's Noah's ark, tops, marbles andsinister toucha slate with a 2,000-year-old multiplication table scratched on it. Ancient Greek Toys. All these once belonged to Greek children in Athens, in Corinth, in Kni dos, Naucratis, Cyrenaiea. "Oh, how perfectly sweet!" cried one of the girls, as the four fair heads were bent over the case. "I say, dad," remarked the boy, "that looks like a fine top." Dad apparently quite unconscious that the far-off ancient world had sud denly become alive and palpitating, solemnly read out the museum labels: "That," he said, "is a doll found In a child's tomb in Athens 2,000 years ago. "And its arms move, too!" cried the girls. "And do look, daddy, at those dear little shoes that come on and off! I'd simply love it." Shadow Children There. The girls went into raptures over a doll in a red peaked cap. Was it just.imagination, or was there really a crowd of children there? Who were those othersa little shy, perhaps slightly annoyed? Just shadows, no doubt. One thing is certain. If the children of 2,000 years ago had suddenly come to life these four little Londoners could have sat down and played with them in complete understanding. A full-grown Greek might have slain dad at sight, but a six-year-old Corin thian would have met his children as friends and contemporaries on all mat ters of doll welfare. REPAIR BRIDGE TO AID STORK Neighbors Lay Planks and Officers Open It for Doctor to Reach Patient. Philadelphia, Pa.When Dr. Robert T. Elmer of Wayne the other night received a telephone call from a far mer living back of Newton square, in forming him that the stork was hover ing around and that the physician was desired to greet the bird, the only, road that was not blockaded by snow was one leading over a bridge, across Darby creek, that was condemned and closed to traffic two weeks ago. Neighbors of the anxious farmer communicated with the Delaware county commissioners and obtained permission to open the bridge, with the proviso that Dr.. Elmer use it at his own risk. The farmers laid planks upon the structure and the doctor drove his car carefully over it and hurried to his patient, to be there when the stork arrived. TO PLAY CHRIST ON STAGE For the First Time an Impersonation of Christ on the EngUsh Stage Is Permitted, London. An impersonation of Christ has been permitted for the first time on an English stage in the production here of Stringberg's sym bolic play, "Advent." A fourteen-year old girl appeared as the Redeemer. Dramatic critics are inclined to take the view that the English stage censorship is broadening in regard to religious plays, probably owing *to the fact that representations of Christ have appeared often in the films. In the past years, several plays nave been refused licenses because they included Christ as one of the characters. Others received permis sion on condition that no character should appear symbolic of the con ventional conception of Divinity in human form. Dogs Guard Frozen Boys. Kalkaska, Mich.Their two dogs standing faithfully by their side, des pite the cold, Leonard and John Gilde, thirteen and nine years old, respec tively, were found frozen to death in fifteen inches of snow, about six miles west of South Boardman. The boys, sons of Conelius Gilde, a farmer, had left home with their dogs to hunt rab bits. They apparently lost their way in the snowstorm that came up late in. the day, and, overcome with ex haustion, lay down to sleep, cuddling against their dogs.^^|pi^^^ ST. PAUL AND MINNEAPOLIS. MOT..

Delaware, O.After 25 years of tedious labor, C. C. Cregmile has com pleted his construction of a grandfa ther's clock here. The clock, on display in a local store window, is hand carved. It was made out of solid black walnut which formerly constituted part of a pulpit in the old William Street Methodist church here." All polishing, carving and fitting was done at odd moments by Mr. Cregmile. Standing eight feet six inches high, the clock is beautifully carved on its sides and face panels. All cutting is original. No design was followed. Mr. Cregmile, although offered good money for the unique masterpiece, has offered to sell it for a relatively small sum to the William street church. The clock is built so that it will house cathedral tubular chimes. and latterly at Columbia university, notice and which will absolutely con- said that French statesmen, soldiers and men of law and letters as well as other professions compose the commit tee which is arranging the centennial. "Making all allowance for every se vere criticism of Napoleon's career," he continued, "it is still true that his work unified France, saved it from partition among its foes and in civil life prepared alike the foundation and structure of the society which in the World war saved France and helped to save all western civilization.

REDUCES HORRORS OF FIRE Used by Romans for Funeral Dress of Bodies Wttch Were to Be Cre mated Asbestos Curtains Common in Theaters. New York.It is not so very long ago that a fire on the stage of a theater was an ever present menace to the audience. Today most play houses possess an asbestos curtain which can be dropped at a moment's fine any fire to that part of the thea ter. Asbestos is a mineral, found in the earth just like coal and iron, and mined. A few years ago it was merely a curiosity to be found only in the lab oratory of the chemist. Today it is used in many ways and forms an im portant factor in the industrial mar ket of the world. This mineral is not a modern dis covery.. Asbestos was known to the ancients. The Romans used the sub stance, deriving their supplies from the Italian Alps and the Ural moun tains. One of the uses to which as bestos cloth was put in those days f~ .-www VU^ cremated. In fact, it was called the "funeral dress of kings," as so much difficulty was found in making the cloth that only a king or the extremely wealthy could afford it. The slowness of the modern development of the as bestos industry has been caused by the technical difficulties of weav ing the short silky fibers into cloth or combining them in other ways to produce articles of commercial utility. Comes From Canada. The asbestos used in the United States comes almost entirely from Canada. There are deposits of the mineral in Arizona, California, Georgia and other states, but this is not of the high quality of the Canadian as bestos. There are various, types of asbestos, and the sort that can be carded, spun and woven in a manner similar to wool, flax or silk is*found mainly in the Thedford mines of Quebec. It is this property of the mineral that fooled the Roman his torian, Pliny, in thinking it to be of vegetable origin and that has given rise to its designation as the "mineral vegetable" and the "physical, paradox." Nonburning Qualities Known. The raw asbestos is subjected to a dressing process which consists of separating the asbestos from the rock in which it is imbedded. In the low grade product machines are used for this, while in the high-grade material hand dressing is resorted to. The fact that asbestos will not burn was known ages ago, and while that is responsible for a very important and valuable application of the substance today, it does not constitute the sole use of this product. The theater cur tains are spun from asbestos fiber of the best quality. About 1,000 of these curtains are made each year. The largest asbestos curtain in the world is found in the Hippodrome. In some theaters asbestos cloth is also used as a lining for walls and ceilings and there is also a tendency to make all the scenery on the stage and the draperies from this material. Has Many Uses, Asbestos cloth coated with rubber is used in making gaskets and packings for high pressure steam pipes. The cloth is also used in laundries, hotels, the automobile, the linings of brakes and for a host of other purposes. Per haps the most interesting use of as bestos cloth is in the manufacture of garments. The firemen clad in as bestos boots, trousers, coat, gloves and headgear would be fireproof to a high degree, and could fight fires with much more comfort and effectiveness. Most of us are familiar with asbestos table covers and pads, flatiron holders, bak ing sheets, stove mats and other ar ticles common in the household. The asbestos fiber can also be woven into a rope useful in fire fighting. These fireproof ropes are not heavy, do not become slippery and are not injured by water. Asbestos twine is made for use in the laboratory, sew ing thread and incandescent lamp thread. Asbestos, being also heat insulating, is used in covering steam pipes, boil ers and all sorts of heating surfaces to prevent the loss of heat by radia tion. Not only will an asbestos coat ing keep the heat within the pipe but it will also keep heat from Entering pipes, and it is used in covering re frigerating pipes and apparatus. Asleep, That Was All. Lafayette, Ind.Raymond Straub, eleven years of age, a newsboy, was found unconscious in the hallway of a hotel, here one night and was taken to a local hospital in the belief that he had been injured or perhaps poisoned. The lad could not be aroused, and physicians worked sev eral hours trying to determine what was the matter. When the bow awoke he was surprised to find himself in the hospital. He told the doctors that he was tired and exhausted when he entered, the hotel, and it was deter-, mined that the boy was only sound asleep when he failed to respond to restoratives, mgggf^ggt fpygj iSMi^MWM ?m. &*# CHASTENED BY WAR OW Travelers Find Port Said Much Changed City. Gateway to East Has Been Cleaned Up and Is Now Safe and Nearly -v* Respectable. Port Said.Old travelers come ashore and smile sadly. New travelers plunge into the stronghold of curio merchants with surprise and disap pointment. Port Said, like the rest of the world, has been changed by the war. Port Said, to be quite frank, has been cleaned up. Time was when a brief saunter through the ramshackle bazaar meant a terrific battle with touts. Shady gentlemen of all nationalities, most of them known to the police of two con tinents, plied their disreputable trades with impunity. An incredible amount of rubbish was carted away by tourists in memory of a few hours' stay. Mur der was a pastime after dark, and many sinister stories were told in the smoking rooms of departing liners of Port Said's wicked inhabitants. Now this gateway to the East is safe and nearly respectable. The hand of the A. P. M. has been laid in no uncertain manner on the under world which was the real Port Said. Deportations eased the town of its in ternational -rogues and vagabonds. A passport control second to none in effectiveness keeps a tight grip on the polyglot population. Murder, even routine robbery, which was a staple industry on steamer days, is discour aged by the representatives of Brit ish rule. Gone, too, is the atmosphere of piracy and pillage maintained by brazen guides and other varieties of profiteers. They were wont to seize on amiable and inquisitive tourists with the persistency of a leech. They would extract money by entreaties, ar gument, threats, even violence. Now the touts and trinket sellers and ragged bootblacks approach their prey with marked diffidence. A sin gle sharp refusal usually suffices to turn them off. They drop the trail immediately they see that no business is to be done.

RELICS ARE WELL PRESERVED Ancient People Were Intermediate in Development Between Basket Makers and the Pueblo Cliff Dwellers. Cambridge, Mass. Explorations made by the Peabody museum of Harvard in the Marsh pass region of northeastern Arizona have resulted in the discovery of the remains of an ancient people who once inhabited that section and were intermediate in development between the basket makers, the earliest race known to have lived in that region, and the Pueblo cliff dwellers, whose remark able stone villages along the Arizona cliffs have attracted wide-spread in terest. The Harvard expeditions to this semi-desert region, over 100 miles from the nearest railroad, were be gun in 1914 by A. V. Kidder and Sam uel J. Guernsey of the Peabody mu seum staff, and were later continued under the sole direction of Mr. Guern sey. Prior to 1914, commercial col lectors had found traces of the bas ket makers, but facts about these earliest people of the region had never been secured by trained archaeologists until the Harvard expeditions began. Preceded the Cliff Dwellers. These expeditions have not only contributed a mass of information concerning the basket makers but now show the existence of a people who followed the basket makers in point of time, but preceded the cliff dwellers. The post-basket makers, as these newly discovered people are called, resemble the basket makers in many particulars, but were clearly in a later stage of development. The basket makers had no permanent dwellings, whereas these later people had stone houses in caves and in the open. They also had pottery, crude in some re spects, but with the beginnings of decoration, and some of it was fired. This is the earliest pottery known to have been made in the southwest. Instead of burying their dead in caves, as did the basket makers, they seem to have lived In the caves and to have conducted their burials in the open. Their more settled life is at tributed to their success in agricul ture. They grew corn or a primitive variety. Skulls Long Instead of Round. Skeletons show that both the basket makers and these successors had rath er long skulls, whereas the cliff dwell ers who followed them were a round headed race and always had the back of the skull artificially flattened by the hard board headrest of the cra dles in which the babies were placed. The relationship of these various peoples is still a matter of doubt. It is believed the post-basket makers probably were descendants of the bas ket makers, but whether they in turn were ancestors of the cliff dwellers is not certain. It seems doubtful on ac count of the marked difference in the shape of the head, even aside from artificial flattening. The basket makers had dogs. The mummified remains of two were found during the Harvard explorations and are now on exhibition at the Peabody museum along with a quantity of other objects illustrative of basket maker life. Many of the objects found in the dry caves in this region are in an ex traordinary state of preservation, on account of the dryness of the climate, despite their great age. How many thousand years ago these primitive people lived in north eastern Arizona is unknown, or how they were related to the Indians of the present day. The scientific study of the region is still in its early stages. Italians Scoop Up Earth From Roosevelt's Grave Oyster Bay, L. LFour Ital ians got off the 2:30 train at Oyster Bay one afternoon, in quired the way to Young's ceme tery and plodded the mile and a half up the hill to the grave of Colonel Roosevelt. They crossed themselves, knelt in prayer a moment, crossed themselves again and placed flowers on the grave. Then they astounded the attendant by scraping away, the snow from a spot near the railing and goug ing out frozen earth with their fingers, stuffing it into their overcoat pockets. "What's the idea?" demanded the attendant, strolling over to them. "This week," the spokesman of the quartette explained, "we go back to Italy. We loved Colo nel Roosevelt. Colonel Roose velt loved Italy. All Italians love him.
