Intensity of Illumination a lad Thing
for tha Human Organa
, of Vision. ,
A food deal hai been beard of lata
t the Injurious effect of certain forma
f lighting on the eyesight; and our
tomparative Ignorance of what are
tnown as the ultra-violet rays of the
ipectrum has made tbem an obvious
tcapegoat But It Is equally likely
Aat human eyesight suffers from the
nere intensity of Illumination which
afforded by artificial light. In an
irdinary room In which the sun's rays
lo not actually penetrate, the daylight
which filters in is often as low as
tne tenth a candle-power for each
iquare Inch of illuminated surface. It
nay even be as little as one-hun-Jredth,
and certainly is no greater
han that in the rooms of Queen Anne
Houses where the walls are paneled
tnd the email windows have small
panes and heavy wooden frames. The
intrinsic brightness of nearly all arti
Bclal lights is much greater than this,
ffhlch accounts for the Injurious ef
fects they produce on the eyes if lo
cated within the range of vision.
Only Two Fires In 70 Years.
The city of Cartagena, in the Re.
public of Colombia, is one spot where
:he business of being a fireman is no
treat drain on the nervous system,
according to Joseph K. Duffy of San
Francisco, who spent some months In
"There have been two fires in Car
'.agena In the last 70 years," Mr. Duf
fy said. "One man who now is grow
'ng old says his father remembers as
a small boy when a bouse in the town
was burned. That was an accident.
Hie other fire, which happened recent,
'y, eay about a dozen years ago, was
oellered to have been of an incen
diary origin.
"But these fives did not destroy the
houses in which they happened, be
tause the bouses are built of stone.
All that can burn is what is inside.
This felicitous state of affairs is as
cribed by eome of the Inhabitants to
the influence of San Pedro Claver, a
priest of Cartagena a couple of cen
turies back, who within the last ten
years was made a saint."

Keeping Time in Holland.
"Railroad time, as we generally un
derstand the phrase In the United
States, is a little ahead of the 'town'
time, but in The Hague, the quaint old

20 minutes fast," said Gerald Wal

buildings of The Hague the timepieces

what reason there is for this I don't

custom that has been handed down
for generations, and the Dutch are too
conservative to change the ways of
their progenitors without some migh

The nurse was wheeling the child

ress, without cuddling, looking sadly
out on the weary world with wide
glass eyes.
The stuffed animal in the arms of
the child was a possum. The unca

of the buggy was a Teddy bear.

Defiance Starch, as it can be applied
