Smallest Visible Things.
Few persons would gue*.s that the smallest things visible to the eye are the stars. Yet Divers was no doubt correct in declaring that such is the case. Great aa many of the stars are In actual magnitude, their distance is so immense that their angular diameter becomes Insensible and they approach the condition of geometrical points. The minute disks that they appear to have are spurious, an effect of irradiation. Words to Be Avoided. There are two simple words In our language that have caused more mis ery than all the plagues of history. They have broken lifelong friendships, set brother against brother, separated lovers and caused children to weep. These poisoned words have sent Inno cent persons to the gallows and have turned the debutante Into a deml mondaine. Think well before you let them pass your lips. They are “They say."—Exchange.

An instance of momentary success in tlie collection lias been noted when the minister published tlie following soliloquy in the congregational calen dar: “I am '-.’5 cents. I’m too small to buy a quart of oil; I'm too small to buy oue-half pound of candy; I’m too small to buy a ticket to a good movie show; I'm even too small to buy a box of undetectable rouge ; but most people think I'm ’some money’ when I come to church.”—The Chris tian Kegister. What It a Picture Frame? Picture frames are frequently too ornate. The simpler they are tlie less they attract attention from tlie pic ture itself. They should become a part of the picture and not a separate picture in themselves. Color, how ever, may be used to advantage and any simple wooden frame may Ibe painted In oil paint to match some tone of the picture. Ordlnurily tills is better than to have the frame harmonize with tlie woodwork of the room. HELLO GIRLS MAKE HATS In the Chelsea and Watkins Central Office, says The Telephone Review, they know how to make hats. In fact, there has been an epidemic of hat mak ing, for like other spring fevers It Is catching. Just to watch the pretty "hats” which enter and leave the building every night and morning would make any girl envious. All the latest shapes and shades appear—the turban, the rolled sailor, the broad brimmed hat, the latest thing in wing brims—the hat of taffeta, the hat of silk, each one distinct and perhaps handsomer than the one before (until I the one before reappears). In order to forestall a regular stam pede on the Chelsea and Watkins Cen tral Office girls to find out how they make thfe hats, we shall give a few hints that we gathered on a recent visit. A number of girls under the guid ance of Personnel Assistant Miss I. M. Helbig formed a small class and pro cured an instructor, a skillful milliner with all the tricks of the trade at her scissor’s end. One night each week a class meets—usually a new group of girls every two or three weeks in or der that as many as possible may gain hat-knowledge as well as get that hand made Easter bonnet. The girls arrive with paper bags filled with crinoline shapes, pieces of silk and taffeta, or yards of straw, all of which disappear during the course of the evening as the scissors snip and t^ie needle makes headway. Miss Helhifc often assists the girls in the purchase of materials, and advises in regard to shape, amount of material, color, etc. For turbans, Just a head band, a little stiffening in the brim and one wiring make the foundation. The ma terial should be used on the bias. When making rolled sailors and hats with stiff brims, it is easier to work with the orown and britn sep arately. The frame may be eut so that tlie material may be sewed to the crown and the brim before it put to gether. The material Is also used on the bias, pulled tight or folded as re quired. The frame may be cut so that the material may be sewed to the crown and the brim before it is put togelher. The material is also used on the bias, pulled tight or folded as required. In order to get the right lines the material Is always pinned on securely before a stitch is taken. A soft crown may be substituted for the stiff crown, and Is made by sewing a piece of bias material, reinforced by light flannel around an oval top. Ornaments, quills, a bunch of flow ers, complete the process of transform ing a few odds and ends—pieces of silk, etc.. Into a handsome Easter crea tion, which would catch the eye and arrest the attention of the most un observant young gallant. TELEPHONING TO SEA Ship to Shore Telephony Demon strated by Bell Engineers. Ship-to-shore telephony has arrived. | On March 5th, says The Telephone Review. President H. B. Thayer of the American Telephone and Telegraph Company answered the ring of the bell on his telephone in his home at New Canaan, Conn., and out of the ! instrument came a voice saying "Hello! This is Captain Bind.” “This is Mr. Thayer of the Telephone Company," I was the reply. "I am at New Canaan. Captain, I understand you are 300 or , 100 miles at sea." “Yes. we were 370 miles from Ambrose Bight at 7 :30. We expect to dock tomorrow evening at seven or eight.” So ran the talk between the head of the Bell System at his country home in Connecticut and the Captain of the “America" out in the Atlantic. The Bell System’s radio telephone j station at Peal Beach was the trans mitting station for the demonstration and the receiving station was at El beron. The “America” of the United States Shipping Board Fleet was equipped with a wireless telephone set made by the General Electric Company and installed by the Radio Corpora tlon. The wire circuit used was operated on the four-wire principle between Walker Street and ttie radio stations ; and on the ordinary two-wire principle 1 from Walker Street to New Canaan. A hybrid coil and balancing network | such as are used for all telephone re peaters established the union between the two and the four wire circuits. Interest in the demonstration was i widespread even during the prelim- j lnar.v tests which were overheard night after night by thousands of radio ama teurs. Passengers on the ship clamored to speak with their friends on shore and their friends in turn wpre equally anx- 1 Ions to communicate witli them. The J Deal Beach station was flooded with j telephone calls from people who ; sought to talk with acquaintances on the ship. One of these requests came from Chicago. Both the possibilities and shortcom ings of ship-to-shore communication were brought out. At various inter vals Intelligible communication with the ship was prevented by Interference from spark stations, and the elimina tion of such interference Is one of the problems still awaiting solution. Another limitation which developed hut one which Bell engineers already have done much to eliminate Is the lack of secrecy In conversation. < West New York Carpet Cleaning Co.
