Basement Store GATHER MOLLUSKS TO MAKE BUTTONS (Milwaukee. Sentinel Several fishermen making a little trip up the Wisconsin river last sum mer and washing one noon in its water, noticed a large number of clams. Thcy picked up several dozen and they were sent to a button factory. The latter pronounced them to be of excellent finality. Inspired by the good news of their acceptability, the "men began in earnest o obtain more shells and to market them. They established a camp and began operations. High water and bad weather interfered with the early part of their operations and therefore the work was slow at first. As warm weather came on they doubled their ef forts, with the result that they have several tons of the shells now ready for market. Following a short writeup in a news paper in one of the upriver towns, "shellers'' on Rock river heard of the new field, and Eugene Archer, Joseph Jesberger, Al WartseH and William Bacon, all of Rockford, III., landed in the little hamlet with four large, five horsepower motor boats and an auxi liary punt together with camp outfit and all other requirements to get at work at once. A visit to their camp showed they were ready to start opera tons. Each of the men has had sev eral years' experience in "shelling" on the Rock, Baraboo,. Peeatonica, and other Btreams. The work of catching and shelling the clams in one in which there is an element of danger as well as some very hard work. The power in the boats is used primarily for traveling the river, being seldom used in actual operations of catching the clams. On each boat are-two sixteen and eighteen foot poles to each of which 34 or more strings of hooks are attached in gangs of four and three or four hooks to the string. These are dropped into the river, one at a time, and dragged along the bottrtm for some distance before being raised. It is then hung on standards in the boat and the clams which have Mruck.the hooks, .are re moved by a slight but quick jerk. The process continues until the "sheller" has secured a load. He then returns to his landing, takes the clams from the boat and places them in a "cooker." where they are heated to a certain point and later placed on a table, where the meats are taken from the shells. Each shell and meat is carefully in spected in the hope of securing either a pearl or "slug." While the drags are in ths water, the boat drifts with the current, the hooks being on the bottom. It is often necessary to use what is termed a "donkey" to assist in the operations, and consists of a long frame, about two feet wide, which they drop into the water at the stern of the boat When the "donkey'' is placed in the water the current striking against it produces added pressure and therefore the boats have added impetus, espe cially in the more quiet stretches of the stream. , The principal danger connected with the operations is when the hooks be come "snagBard" on a stump, tree or log which may be in the bottom of the river.

BRITONS ACCLAIM TOWNSHEND , I-ONDON, Nov. 14. (British Wire less Service) Major General Charles V. F. Townshend. who while' command ing the British forces: at Kut-el-Amara, was forced to surrender to the Turks in 1916. after standing a long siege, visited yesterday afternoon the mansion house as a guest of the Brit ish and. Foreign Sailors' society. The crowd which awaited the arrival of General Townshend gave him a rous ing round of hearty applause.

PRAYER DAY FOR NEW YORK CITY BEEKEEPING MOST PROFITABLE NEW YORK, Nov. 14. Mayor Hylan today issued a proclamation designat ing next Saturday and Sunday as days article are in any sense farm, stone. (Women's Home Companion) The state apiarist of Iowa, Frank C. Pellett. says: - "None of the instances quoted in this but all are of bees kept in the residence districts of cities or large towns. "One case of special interest is from the capital city of Iowa. The husband and wife are both enthusiastic about the bees, but the man of the house is confined during business hours as a bookeeper in a large retail establish ment The home is near a car line and there are about three lots, which give ample room. From about one hundred hives of bees kept on the lots about their home they have sold nearly $1,500 worth of honey in a single year. . This is perhaps ther largest amount they have been able to make in one year; but every year the bees add a sub stantial sum to the salary earned by the husband and father. The wife docs much of the work in caring for the bees, and from them the family bids fair shortly to pay for a home and a business which will support the family in comfort. There are numerous simi lar cases which could be pointed out where bees are kept in the rear of town lots or even on top of business build ings in such, large cities as Chicago."
