No. 2 Are you interested in making your living in the easiest, best way-the
way that will leave something over and above your living expenses?
No. 3 Have you given enough attention to conditions to understand fully that
to make more than a living you must be educated to do some one thing
If your answer to No. 1 is "YES," the best way to answer No. 3 is enroll with us and equip yourself to b

The answer to question No. 2 is the result of answering No. 3 put into practice.

floeberg'not an iceberg
Former Yellow and Dirty in Color;
Latter Ordinarily Brilliant
White With Streaks.
While floebergs often are of great
size, they nro much different from
icebergs, Rene Bache writes in the
Philadelphia Public L'edger. They are
yellow and dirty-looking In color,
while Icebergs are ordinarily a bril
liant white, with ultramarine streaks.
The streaks are pure ice, while the
white parts are largely solidified snow.
Floebergs aro formed In the bays
along the coast of Labrador, where
ice Is blown shoreward and piled up,
sheet on sheet, during tho winter.
When summer comes the masses thus
formed are llablo to float out to sea.
An iceberg Is composed of fresh wa
ter, frozen. A floeberg Is frozen salt
Tho crew of the steamer Andros
coggin, of the United States coast
guard, experimented In blowing up
icebergs with shells and mines, but
both attempts failed. The shells mere
ly made white spots, and were shat
tered, while there was nothing that
the mines could be attached to to do
damage. In addition ships could not
come closo enough to the bergs with
out danger from the floating moun
tains to make careful investigation
for the placing of the mines.
Ye Old-Time Telephone Girl.
"Time was, before the experts came
along and, In vulgar business parlance,
'sold efficiency to the telephone com
panies, when the telephone was a real
convenience." John Armhruster re
lates In Everybody's. "The historic
Instance of the lady wUo rang up cen
tral and said : 'I am Just stepping over
to Mrs. Brewster's for a few minutes
to get her doughnut recipe she's Main
227 and I'll leave the receiver off
so you can hear If the baby cries and
let me know.' In my home town we
used to ask central where the fire was
and who was dead and did she think
there was any mail for us."
SOLDIERS SEE GIANT CLOCK
Massive Timepiece In House of Com.
mom Tower, Regarded as One of
World's Best Timekeepers.
Fifty disabled soldiers, many of
whom had lost a leg In tho war and
wore au artificial one in Its place,
climbed the 300 steps of the House
of Commons tower In London to stud;
the mechanism of "Big Ben," the
giant timepiece. Tho soldiers are being
trained by the ministry of labor in
watch and clock repairing.
A guide told the party that the
clock was designed by Lord Grim
thorp, and was placed In the tower
In 1S9S. It has been working ever
since, and Is still regarded as one of
tho best timekeepers lit the world. The
minute hand Is 14 feet long and
'lelghs 224 pounds, and the pendu
lum, which requires two seconds to
complete each swing, weighs 700
pounds. The bell which sounds the
hours has a diameter of nine feet,
and weighs 14 tons, the weight of the
striking hammer being 700 pounds.
An electric motor now winds the clock
In 20 minutes. Formerly it took two
men working three afternoons a week
to complete the task.
For flre-reslstlng construction, the
recommendations of the American Con
crete Institute specify that limestone,
trap-rock and burned clay be given
preferenco over highly siliceous
gravels, which disintegrate under In
tense heat. When gravel Is used, with
out a protective coating, columns
should be made round Instead of rec
tangular. When gravel, with spiral
reinforcement, Is used for either round
or rectangular columns, it Is suggested
that additional protection be given by
a coating of one inch of cement plas
ter, either on metal lath or reinforced
by light expanded metal.

Strict Rule for Employees In Factories
Where Work Is Done
Clothes of a light color are not fa
vorites where work Is done on gold.
In fact, In many such factories a dark
suit of clothes Is absolutely demand
ed, and even a light waistcoat may
lose a man n job. The reason for this
Is that any stray grains of gold that
may get on the clothing can easily be
caught on a dark suit, while they
might get nwny from the establishment
If light clothes were worn.
That such n rule was enforced
among gold workers one men learned
recently when n Bohemian gold heat
er applied to him for n helping hand.
The Bohemian snld that he had not
been in this country long, that he had
hud a chance to obtain a good Job at
his trade, hut that the place had been
refused him because he turned up
with a light suit nnd waistcoat on,
nnd they were tho only clothes he
The roan whom he approached was
struck by the story and offered to help
him out If it proved true. He went to
a factory with him nnd found out that
the man could have the Job If he pre
sented himself within an hour clad In
the proper clothes. So a suit of de
sired kind wns obtained for him and
sure enough ho got the Job.
"You mny think this is strange," said
tho foreman of the factory, "but it
means quite n lot to us. Every man's
clothing Is carefully examined when he
leaves the place at night and the gold
is brushed off whenever we see any
on his clothing. It Is Impossible to
hide even tiny grains on a dark back
ground, but In the case of a mixed or
a light suit we might easily lose quite
an nmouut of gold, and gold Isn't any
thing you want to lose even in small
