V>;i j Why Worry wi Making Butler t ON YOUR FARM BRING YOUR CREAM OR MILK TO THE STILL BIND FEET t Chinese Have Not Given Up \ Practice of Centuries. i Wearing of Queues and Footbinding Are Institutions of High Import ance in the "Flowery" Land Through the writings and reports ' of foreign observers most of us have recently been Induced to believe that 1 all Chinese men have cut off their < queues ami that little girls and women ; are no longer subjected to the tortures ( of footbinding. Hut neither of these , things Is true. It Is true that there are not many queues left In the cities In which there Is a strong foreign influence, nor ure there many high class Chinese any- ' where who continue to cling to this one time .so highly vulued adornment; i hut If you would kuow something about the uncompromising uttltude of | the people as a whole you must get together, us 1 did, a little ctKt caravan und strike out into^ the ruilroadlesa und uewspaperless interior. On Diuuy a day's Journey across country, through villages and towns and considerable cities, you would not ( see h single shorn head, and ull your Ideas about the awakening and the rejuvenation of China would And themselves hopelessly at vurlunce with an inescapable conclusion that anything ! In the nature of an actual change In tills uma/.lng land will probably taks piace in a 100 gradual way to lie currently observable. As for the cruel practice of binding ( i the feet of little girls, I ?ee<l only say ( that on u Journey in the spring of this I jear I covered a large part of Xhan! tung and Southern Chih-li, and except in Christian mission schools did not i see one single little girl over It years of age with unbound feet. And a little i girl with newly bound feet is u most pitiable creature. As she grows older either she begins to get used to the agony or her developing vanity helps her to hear it. Hut when she is u little girl, Just emerged from footfree childhood, the thing she is compelled to live through Is not to be described. She will sit for days on end and do nothing hut cry?unto herself, as It were?softly, helplessly, hopelessly. And when she staggers out to play she stumps around on her heels, holding her little bound toes up, uml one Is | likely to observe her at any moment giving way to a spasm of unbearable pain. It probably is the most dreadful thing in the world. Hut, strange as it may seem, a 4 Inch foot Is still un us- 1 set to u Chinese woman. 1 To be sure, the modern cities aru < filled with modern women with tag feet?Nos. 2 or 3 at most, ordinarily, | because the feet of Chinese women : are naturally small?and such women even become nroliclent in modern dancing uiul may be seen in cabarets and fashionable restaurants foxtrotting, twostepping and even toddling to s American Jazz music with smart young men from the universities, hut the mass of tlie people 1ms not ceased < even in China to make up the hulk , of the population, and the bulk of tha ('hinese population is still steeped in | tiie traditions of millenniums past.?

West Virginia is followed ! in order by Louisiana, Wyoming, MonI tuna, Kentucky, and I'enusylvunia. ; Louisiana, however, is making great | advances iu lite production of enrhou | black, uiul its output may soon exceed ' that of West Virginia. There is less demand iu Louisiana for natural gas | for fuel, but in West Virginia and I'ennsylvnidu the consumers have de- | munded that the supply be reserved for domestic use. This fact, together ' with the development of largo supplies ' iu Louisiana and Wyoming, has caused the carbon-black iudustry to | move |i? states where there is at pres[ ent little demand for natural gas. Carbon black is a fluffy, velvety j black pigment, frequently confused ! with lampblack, which is gray in color and which is produced from oil or | other carbonaceous material. Eor ; many of its uses carbon black Is suj perior to lampblack in quality, but | Tor some uses, as for certain pigments ! In puints. lampblack Is superior. * II A Parrot's Feat.

Found New Yorkers Easy. "I ran into a real old Southern darkey bday," said Smith to Jones, as he -eturned to his office after a little trip :o inspect some real estate he was landling.

"I found him wandering around dis.-onsolatcly in Washington Square," smith went on, "and I think he must have known I was a Southerner.

So I gave him a dollar and took him over and put him on the 'L.' He was tickled half to death." "Was he a tall old chap, about fifty, with a gray shirt and a straw hat with the top knocked off?" asked Jones. whose eyes had been twinkling. "Why, yes," answered Smith; "howlid you know?"

Fitchburg, Massachusetts, holds the unchallenged distinction, so far as the association knows, of having established the first town forest in the United States. Townforests in Europe prove very profitable, the inhabitants of such towns in many cases arc handed checks instead of tax bills. A new method of blasting coal by ?ater instead of ptiwder will diminish iisastcrs, it is believed. The apparatus consists of a long nozzle that us cxatuy inio inc noie oorea by the miners for the powder charge. A few quarts of water injected into the hole drives out the gas in the coal and an- j other charge of water cracks and breaks the coal, making it soft enough (o bring down with a pick. It is said the new method is a success in England and certain parts of America. The high prices asked for coal by American operators and dealers, together with the high freight rates,' has resulted in British st>ft coal be- j ing brought in large quantities for ;encral consumption in New York and Boston and the West Indies. The market of thc West Indies have been' in the hands of American exporters j Tor years.

The man smiled and said that he was not, whereupon the bright little girl turned and called to her mother: "Ma, he ain't married. What else do you want me to ask him?" Hunting For l.ori Fortune. Five Missouri brothers are conducting a search for the mythical pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, albeit they entertain high hopes of really finding a treasure estimated to be >4,000,000. The treasure was said to have been hidden in an old mine more than 200 years ago by Spanish missionaries, who were forced to flee for their lives before bands of untamable Apache Indian raiders. The location of the mine, acording m the tale, lies about fifteen m les south of the Mexican border and up in the mountain The padres buried their treasure, it is said, and then sealed the mine. Only one of the five brothers is on the actual scene where the excavation is being conducted. He is Frank P. Magee. a mining engineer, of El Paso. He, together with his assistant, Antonio Mendozza, has presented such evidence of success that Magee's brothers and several El Paso businesmen arc pushing the exploration zealously. Mcndoza has beer, searching for the buried treasure for the pasl eighteen years. Frank Magee declared in a receni letter writtentohisbrothers, John, J. A and Vance Magee, all of Macon, thai as far as the excavation had proceeded they had found the mine barricaded with heavy cedar and mahogany timber. Tom Magee, of Moberly, another brother, is also interested in the search for gold. "There is authentic history that the ore from this mine was so valuable that it was carried by pack-mules and ox-trains to Mexico City a distance ol 1.200 miles, for smelting," wrote Magee. "I'm banking more on thai than I am on finding the millions stored away by the old padres to keep it from falling into the Indians hands. So fai as our investigations have progressed the stories of the hidden treasure have been borne out. and Senor Mcndoza. .1 capable mining man, is confident thai it is here." Eighteen years ago Meliton Ordaz a postmaster at Chihuahua City, gavt Mendoza the document describing the location where Magee is now conduct' ing his operations, with the under standing that he was to be a partnei in the enterprise. It was Ordaz whe related the story of the mine bein* sealed on the approach of hostile tribes of Indians. The mine is known as La Mina Perla and it includes three shafts. Th< main shaft is through a fissure in th< rocks. Signs of ancient drills can b< seen on all sides. In the shafts ar< numerous well-preserved ladders mad* from mahogany and cedar. Presum ably the miners of olden times usee these ladders to take their ore to tht surface. Magee has written that the peopl* along the border are considerable agitated over their explorations anc that several newspapers have sen writers to see how near they are getting to the treasure. He said that the; have worked in nearly 600 feet in on* of the shafts and that the cedar anc mahogany timbering continues all th< way. One theory, that is given mucl credence by several mining engineers has it that the old mine was a ricl producer and that a great deal ol gold bullion had accumulated and was awaiting shipment to the smelters a Mexico City when news of the raidint Apaches came, and hurtied measure' were taken tn keep the treasure oui of the hands of the Indians, who had evidently heard of the contemplated shipment and had made plans tc seize it.
