The term "Almighty Dollar" is the heritage of Washington Irving, as a term implying American passion for gain. " Ladron" or " Lad rone," means thief or thieves; so the islands of that name have to bear this rather ig noble lineage. " Polis" means city, as Indianapo lis, Indian-city; " metropolis," large city, and " Minneapolis," city of the laughing water. " Port." means simply a place of shipping, usually added to tie dis tinctive name, in prefix or suffix, as Portland or Bridgeport. The ancient Celtic name of Eng land was Allyn, meaning high island; from which it has been given the present appellation of Albion. "Pe" in Chinese means north, as Peking, northern place of residence or city; nang means southern, a.s Nangking, the southern capitol.

The terminal " hurst" signifies wood or forest, as Lynden-hurst, for est on theriverLynn; "Brad-hurst," broad f>rest, or "Brock-hurst," for est on the brook, etc. " Coupee" is from the French, and signifies cut-off, as Point Coupee. It may be possible, likewise, that this peculiarity has led to its application to certain class of abreviated vehicles. " Cerro" means peak or point; Cerro Gordo, a mountain peake or pass. " Costa" or " cote," used as a syllable of land-marks, signifies the coast region, as "Costa Rica," rich coast, " Cote d'Or," gold coast.

The same word, in mon golian parlance, means gold, as "Alta yen Oola," tho Golden Mountain, "Bltanor," the Golden Lake. " New Albion" is a term generally given to an extensive tract on the northwest coast of North America. It was originally applied by Sir Fran cis Drake, in 1578, to California, but it was afterwards extended to the district embraced in Oregon and Washington to 48th deg. north lat itude. "The New Atlantis" was an allegor ical fiction of Lord Bacon, who gave it as the name of an island in the middle of the Atlantic ocean. He represents himself as having been wrecked thereon and finding an as sociation for the cultivation of natu ral sciences and the promotion of arts. " Northern Athens" is anameonce "Hew to tlie Line, Let the Chips Fall "Where they May." SPECIAL "MINE RESCUE" CAR Tlirough a joint arrangement between the newly established government Bu reau of Alines and the Northern Pacific railway, one of the six new mine-rescue cars, equipped for lirst aid to the injured in mine disasters, rescue work, combat ting mine fires and prevention of mine catastrophes, will be sent into the North west. It will be in charge of a mine expert and four assistants from the gov ernment bureau, and will be transported free over Northern Pacific lines to meet the demands for ita services. While not employed on rescue work and in the sav ing of life, the car will operate as a traveling school for the instruction of mine employes in new methods of first aid, preventing mine accidents and other facts valuable to them in meeting con ditions arising from accidents, injuries, fires and disasters. applied to Scotland from a fancied resemblance in topography to the an cient Grecian city, as well as from the existence of the many literary aud scientific institutions within its bounds. For this latter reason, it may be noted, that this is probably why Boston is called "The Athens of America." " Baba Ali," a character in " Ara bian Nights Entertainments," em bodies the story of his adventures with forty thousand thieves whom he discovers from a hiding-place in a tree and whose cave he enters by use of a magic passwork "Sesame," the name of a grain, which he accidental ly overheard. "Baba Assim," his brother, is mentioned in the same connection. "Bach" is a German derivative and means stream, or river, as " auer bach," brook of the meadow, " A mo bach" situate on the stream. The meaning of "burn" is similar, and invariably refers to some habitation or town on a brooklet or stream, as do also the suffixes borg, borough, " borgo," " bourg," ' born," ' bone," or "brunn. "Borough" is a dis tinctive terminal of English corpor ate towns, whether on waterways or not. The term " Battle of the Kegs" originated in this country from the following historical incident attend ing the Revolutionary war: Certain crude torpedoes in the shape of kegs charged with gunpowder were sent down the river to annoy the British shipping at Philadelphia. The dan ger being discovered, British manned the wharves and shipping and dis charged small arms and cannon at severything they saw floating on the surface dnring the ebb-tide. Thb popularly of the Postil Rink lately established by the general gov ernment at the Olympia postoffice, is attested by the fact that Mr. Cav anaugh is compelled to reject more money than is now on deposit. This money comes from far-away places in Alaska, Oregon, and other cities, by those doubtless impressed with the idea that this State capital possesses superior promise of safety for idle funds. TUERK is trouble oil the Mud and Oyster Bay tide-flats. It is a contro versy between the patrolmen of tbe State reserve, and adjacent land owners. Tho latter concluded that under - provisions of a bill of the last Legislature, owners of tide lands, between mean low and extreme low tides acquired control of the reserves situated in narrow bays and inlets. Thk State Tax Commission has decided that the two big dredges, Ta coma and Portland, although owned by the Puget Sound Dredging com pany of Seattle, will have to pay taxes in this county, as they were at work on the Olympia water-front on the first otiMarch, when the assess ment was lexied. OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY MORNING, MAY 12, 1911. Teaches First Aid to Injur The new rescue cars were built for the government by the Pullman Company and are being <|> B tributcd over the coun try in order that they may be held at locationa adjacent to mining districts, ready for emergency calls. They are of the most modern type and the equip ment with which they have been supplied embraces every device known to expert mine rescue authorities for the saving of life. The car allotted to Northern Pacific territory will be located at Bill ings, Montana, which is a central point from which to reach the Montana bitu minous coal fields. Killings is also the junction of the Northern Pacific and Bur lington lints, and the latter railway will join in handling the car and its stall be tween its new headquarters and points on that line in the southeastern Mon tana coal district. A little dullness now does not mean that the city has gone to the dogs. This is the dull season. Let an over-dressed woman pass along the street and every woman she meets will turn around and stare at her. If there are two together they will make unfavorable com ments. A man who succeeds in life and has acquired money is always wel come in society, it makes no differ ence by what questionable methods he has gained riches, if he has the "scads" the most ultran circle will receive him with open arms. Shake spear was right when he said: "Put money in thy purse." There are mansions in which one feels gloomy, despite the evidence of wealth, and there are cottage homes that make one sigh from lightness of heart. Let the light into the rooms. See that stairways and passages are bright as the garden outside. Shun the "dim religious light" as you would the plague. It has much dim ness and precious little religion about it. The other day while in a grocery store I remarked that no one country woman in fifty knew how to make good butter. A woman was stand ing at my elbow said: " And who are you? -What do you know about but ter." It seems that she had just brought in twenty pounds and she thought my remark was intended for her. I aio sure I had a narrow escape from being knocked down. The woman was a whopper; raw boned and freckli?d-faced with a prize fighter's fist. I have a great deal of respect for the memory of D. O. Mills, the New York rich man who before his death, built two large hotels for the bene fit of moderate means. A man can board at the Mills hotel for $3.85 per week, which charge includes three meals a day and a separate room. The. iwo Mills hotels will accommo date about two thousand men. The ho'els are self-supporting in spite of the low prices. It soems to me that this is one of the sensible ways of "doing good." A public lilwary is closed two-thirds of the time, and at best only a few patronize it. It is quite impossible for a thor oughly healthy person to have too much daylight. One might as well say it is impossible to have too much fresh air. Daylight does not mean the direct glare of the sun. And a healthy person is not one whose eyes demand darkness. Whether the house furnishings are rich or mean does not matter in the least. I like to take long walks and if you would do the same, in a short whilo you would feel angry at yourself for not doing so long before and enjoying the daylight along with its invigor ating and health-giving fresh air. UtOVB CAB—lnterior. Br Luc F VERNON Tlie cars are provided with several seta of the latest Draegor oxygen helmets, necessary for entering places where the oxygen in the air has been used up. Besides supplying oxygen to the wearer ••the helmet an apparatus is attached for the resuscitation of the overcome miner. It is a scientific method of forc ing the lungs into artificial respiration. The lungs are filled with artificial air and the waste coming from the lungs is absorbed in a can of chemicals which is fastened to the pump. These cars are about 70 feet long and have been arranged after a plan worked out by the Bureau of Mines and the Pull man company to make them the most efficient for the work they are expected to do. The cars are provided with sleep ing and cooking quarters and cooks. The experts will live in the cars, and will thus be ready at all times for any emergency that may arise. When you patronize home enter prises, you add to your own pros perty; you are putting fuel on the fire that will make for yodr benefit. You build up your town. Don't lie taken in by outside fakes. There are grocery fakers, dry goods fakers, clothing fakers, newspapers fakers and all that sort of thing to take you in. If you patronize home enter prises you won't get humbugged. Ralph: "Yep, she is pretty and sweet but she has no accomplish ments." Fred: "No?" lialph: "No, she can neither play the piano, sing, nor dance." Fred: "Then how does she pass her time?" Ralph: "O, she does all the cook ing and house work at home." Fred: "Come along! Introduce me quick!" THE highest price ever paid for beefsteak was at Circle City, Alaska. The lirst installment of ten pounds sold readily for #lO per pound. That is but one, however, of the abnormal events that punctuate history at oc casional intervals. It is related that the first box of apples landed in San Francisco sold for $250/ selling readily at tew dollars each. A single prize apple sold, a few weeks ago, at Wenatchee, for five dollars. Firclesi Cooker. The whole principle of the fireless cooker is based upon insulation for the purpose of retaining heat. In its simplest form a tight box is lined with many thickness of paper and then filled with tightly packed hay. a hole being left in the middle to con tain a closed cooking vessel. After the vessel is put in, more hay is pack ed over it, and a tight fitting paper lid put on the box. This made the original "hay-box cooker." It has been rendered more convenient by the use of cushions filled with hay, sawdust, buckwheat hulls or other non-conducting materal, in place of the loose hay. The box is first lined with several thicknesses of paper — bottom, sides and lid. Cushions are then put in, in bottom and sides, packed closely around the cooking vessel, and finally a cushion fitted over the top, and the lid closet! tight. A hinged lid fastened by a hasp is convenient, because it stays shut tight. The food to be cooked in the box must be heated through on the stove, and boiling hard when put in to the box for the cooker does not give heat; it retains and utilizes the beat already there. TIIAT'B a good law just enacted in California, which provides that when a man is convicted of non-support of his wife or family he may be sen tenced to the county jail and required to work for the county paying to his family in the meantime $1.50 for each day's work. Men who refuse or neglect to support their families ought to be compelled by law to do it. TAFT proposes to visit Alaska dur ing August. When the car is not engaged in actual nape-rescue work it will be used in dem onstrating methods of prevention and rescue, so that in case of accident and i before the car reaches the point of dis aster , effective first aid may be rendered by those on the ground. In performing this educational work it is proposed to take this car from one coal mining camp to another in the terri tory mentioned. The car will remain at each camp from one to three weeks a 9 conditions may require, and during this time the men in charge will use both the car and the neighboring mines in train- 1 ing young, selected miners and mine fore men in the use of mine-rescue equipment, and in mine-rescue methods in general. The experts in charge of the car will also give lectures to the miners, illustrating the methods of preventing mine disasters and of procedure necessary in case of disaster. The Best Gift. The best thing to give your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent, toler ance; to a friend, your heart; to your child, a good example; to a father, defference; to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to yourself, respect; to all men, charity.

President Harvey Beck with of the Portland Commercial Club, acting for the Astoria Centennial Committee has issued a formal invitation to Col. Theodore Roosevelt, former Presi dent of the United States and orig inator of the " Big Stick". Race "Sui cide," "Malefactors of Great "Wealth" etc., to be present at the Astoria Centennial during the celebration from August 10 to September 9, 1911. Col. Roosevelt has not been able to reply as yet because he has not had time to consult his engagement book. He has wired that he will advise the Committee as soon as he can "see daylight" and the com mittee is bringing pressure to bear upon him to be present and make an address in the great open air stadium which is being erected at City Park. The Largcat Map. By far the largest map in the world is the ordnance survey map of Eng land, which covers 108,000 sheets. The scale varies from one tenth inch to 10 feet to the mile, and its prepar. tion, including both surveys and office work, cost approximately sl,- 000,000 a year for 20 years. The details are so fine that those sheets having a scale of even 25 inches to the mile show every fence, wall, hedge, and isolated tree ia the country. Not only is the exact shape of every building shown, but every porch and doorstep is indicat ed. as well as the material pf which the structure is composed. Every lamp-post and fire-plug in the coun try is shown. — Harper's Weekly. Leaoa Extract. Mrs. lone S. S., Port Angeles, Wrangles, Wash., says: "I notice the request for recipe for making lemon extract. The following one is excellent: Put the rind of three lemons in a jar and pour over them one pint alcohol. Let stand for four days. At the end of thai time pour liquor off into a bottle and add one ounce of oil of lemon and you have a pint of lemon extract at less than one-quarter the usual expense.
