Important In Former Days When All British publications Had to be Entered for Copyright Purposes. London. Stationers' hall, where Mr. Roosevelt was the guest of the Insti tute of JouranllBm on his recent visit to London, was erected in 1671, and In the hall Itself are hung the shields an which are painted the arms of the members of the court of assistants. It was customary In bygone times for the freemen of the company on state occasions to carry the shields from the hall to Blackfriars, which journey was made by way of the river, and then on embarkation the shields were hung over the barge's aide. The freemen were clad In long gowns of light-blue flannel, with yel low facings, being the proper livery color of the company according to its heraldic bearings. The Worshipful Company of Station ers keeps the registers of copyright works from the date of Its Incorpora tion in 1557 until the passing of the copyright act In 1842 the company pos sessed an absolute monopoly, as all printers were obliged to serve an ap prenticeship to a member of the com pany, and every publication, from a Bible to a ballad, was required to he "entered at Stationers' hall."

One of the most notable features of the supper to Mr. Roosevelt at Station ers' hall was the speech of E. T. Cook, a prominent London newspaper man. It was he who retired from the edit orship of the London Dally News be cause. In his judgment, the manage ment sided with the Boers rather than the rBitl8h in the late war in South Africa. The speech was full of humor and friendliness to America and re peatedly stirred the audience to shouts of laughter and applause. Mr. Cook was scarcely less happy and successful at Stationers' hatl than was Lord Curzon at the Sheldonian theater, Oxford. Lord Curzon can be rigid and frigid in his public appear ance. Welcoming and eulogizing Mr. Roosevelt, he was flexible, graceful, ge nial and delightfully eloquent He spoke without notes and handled his Latin as If he, like the audience and especially the undergraduates, thor oughly appreciated the joke.

AUTHOR ON TOMATO RATIONS Barry Pain, Noted English Humorist Underwent Poverty Period After 8uccess. London. Barry Pain, whose new "Eliza" stories are to be published shortly. Is undoubtedly one of the most popular of living humorists. Aft er leaving Cambridge university, Mr. Pain became a classical tutor at a "crammers;" while there he sent an article to the Cornhlll called "The Hundred Gates." It was accepted promptly by James Payn, then editor of that periodical, who, furthermore, sent the young author a very kind let ter. The cleverness of this article at tracted the attention of Sir Francis Burnand and Wemyas Reld, editors of Punch. Mr. Pain's subsequent contri butions to Punch and The Speaker were so 'Successful, that be resolved to come to London. Then came "a period of romantic poverty," a period In which he lived on bread and tomatoes and in a la borers dwelling. It waa during this time that Mr. Pain received a visit at the laborer's dwelling from the pompous butler of his editor with an invitation to dinner. Harry yanked on the reins but could not stop them.

Having satisfied their thirst Nip and Tuck climbed ouf of the canal. Willie Slater took a stick to beat them. "Let 'em alone, Willie," aald Harry. "It was all my fault; I ought to have watered my horses." GERMANS CUT YANKEE GRAIN Russia Will Furnish Bulk of Product This Year High Prices Are Not Felt Berlin. A great reduction In the Importation of American grain Into Germany Is predicted by members of the Berlin grain exchange, who de clare that this year' the German con sumer is practically Independent of the United States as a source et sup ply. Noting the fact that the recent sharp advances In the American mar ket failed to produce any material ef fect on the Berlin exchange, the bourse expert of the Tageblatt says that the reason may be found In the exceptional conditions which enable Germany to rely almost entirely upon other countries. While American wheat has gone up in consequence of the general rise In all commodities, the Russian crops are expected to be large enough to cover the entire Ger man demand at lower prices. Hence, adds the writer, the Berlin exchanges are responding more readily to price conditions In Russia than to the fluc tuations In the American markets. Scared Monkey In Balloon. . Pottsville, -Pa.

BICYCLE" HAS FOUR WHEELS Improvement Recently Made In Mo torcycle Design, Bringing It Nearer to Automobile. An improvement haa been recently made in the design of the motorcycle, which brings It nearer to the automo bile class. It haa a carriage body and eat which gives it more the appear ance of an automobile, but the great est Innovation is the Introduction of auxiliary wheels, one on either side, by which the vehicle Is Instantly transformed into a four-wbeeler. This change is desirable when the operator Is wending hia way through crowded itreeta where It Is necessary to move ilowly or when it ia necessary to come to a stop. The additional wheels are Four-Wheeled Motorcycle. quite small, but large enough to an swer all purposes and are controlled from the handle bar. This Improve ment will make the motorcycle avail able to many who otherwise are afraid to make use of it, on account of the necessity of maintaining a rather high rate of speed in order to keep the machine In an upright posi Hon, LARGEST ANIMAL IN WORLD Represented by Colossal Skeleton of Whale Eighty-seven . Feet Long In New Zealand Zoo. What Is claimed aa the largest an! mal In the world ia represented by a colossal skeleton In the museum of Christchurch. New Zealand. This i the remains of a large specimen of the blue whale stranded on the coast it that country. This whale la prob ably the largest of all living animals, The length of the skeleton is 87 feet and the head alone is 21 feet The weight of the bones Is estimated at nine tons. This gigantic whale gets Its name of blue whale from the dark bluish-gray of Its upper surface. The tinge of yellow on its lower part has led to the name "sulphur bottom," by which It is known on the western side of the Atlantic. It is otherwise known as Sibbald'a rorqual (Balenoptera slb baldll). The chief food of thla gigantic ani mal Is a small marine crustacean (Trysanopoda lnermis), known to tbe whalers as "kril." Another species of the same shrimp-like group has been obtained In thousands from the stom achs of mackerel caught on the Cor nish coast The nearly related opos sum shrimps, found In enormous num ber In the Greenland seas, form the chief food of the common whale. Some of the thysanopoda are phos phorescent and contribute to the luminosity of the sea. PLANT LOOKS LIKE INSECTS Spots on Orchid Resemble Files and Bees Imitations Are Puzzling to Flower Scholars. Orchid Imitations are a puzzle to flower scholars. The whole appear ance of the flower Is suggestive of some Insect sometimes to quite a re markable degree. It does not seem easy to find any real purpose that could be served by this resemblance, yet no one Imagines that it can be accidental Any one who knew of the bee or chid, a native of Europe, and came upon it for the first time would at once recognise It It seems to be a large velvety brown backed bee nriented with yellow. The two lateral petals might serve wen for the wings of the Insect In the center of the lip of the fly orchid there Is a small bluish spot like the body of a fly. The two lateral petals are Blender and curiously like thA antennae of an Insect The whole Illusion Is complete and suggests to the casual glance that lew nies are banging on the stem o some plant which haa cast Its flowers.

More than 12,000 southern boys less than eighteen years old planted and cultivated an acre of corn each year nnder tbe direction of the department of agriculture. Persons interested in tbe experiment in Arkansas, Missis sippi, South Carolina and Virginia of fered to pay the expenses of a trip to Washington for the boy in each state who raised the greatest amount of corn on his acre. The winning boys will soon visit the national cap ital. I The average yield of corn to the acre in 1909 waa a little more than twenty-five bushels. The South Caro lina boy, who made the best record, produced 152. says Youth's Com panion. If they should be followed ex actly, the yield of corn to the acre could easily be doubled In a single year. Intensive cultivation is worth while on all crops. The average yield of potatoes to the acre in 1909 was 107 bushels, but the Maine farmers aver aged 225 bushels, and some of the more progressive of them dug 400 bushels to the acre. The yield of corn and potatoes depends more upon culti vation and fertilization than upon the soil, and there is practically no part of the United States in which these crops cannot be raised successfully. It Is beyond doubt that larger crops can be produced from ten acres thor oughly tilled than from two or even three times ten acres cultivated as they usually are. The fact that the South Carolina prizewinner raised more corn on one acre than the aver age farmer produces from six tells a story that should not be lost upon those for whose benefit the experi ment was made. $ NOVEL COASTER FOR YOUTHS Healthful Device Can. e Used as Racer, Cart or to Glide Merrily - Down Any Hill.
