Perth Amboy is not keeping puce with the other manu facturing cities of the country in the matter of factory pro ducts. That there has been a general slowing up of in dustry in this city has been realized, but to what extent Perth Amboy has been falling behind as compared with other places was not known until the official figures ns compiled by the census bureau at Washington were published last Saturday. Perth Amboy has not stood still during the five years covered by the census. The growth here has been 54 per cent. But this growth is so small in comparison with the increase in the value of factory products in other places that it has caused Perth Amboy to drop from eighteenth place to thirtieth. This is some set-back. It is true that nearly all the cities, particularly in New Jersey, show a falling olf in the value of factory products, but none of them has taken such a tumble ns has Perth Am boy. Out of eight New Jersey cities included in the census tabulations only two have moved up the list. These two are , Newark and Camden. Newark which formerly ranked thir- . teenth in the country in the matter of value of manufactures, now ranks eleventh. Camden has jumped from thirty-third to thirty-first. This puts Camden still below Perth Amboy, but it shows Camden steadily gaining while Perth Amboy is falling off. me only cities in .New Jersey that still lead Perth Am boy in the value of their manufactured products are Newark 1 Jersey City and Bayonne. But Perth Amboy formerly led * Bayonne by a wide margin. Whereas Bayonne used to hold lh twenty-seventh place among the cities of the country, Perth i Amboy was in the eighteenth position. Bayonne now has t' dropped from Twenty-seventh to twenty-eighth place—only c one—while Perth Amboy comes tumbling from the , eighteenth place down to the thirtieth—two under Bayonne. [ Keeping in mind that Perth Amboy has dropped twelve * places, the census figures show that Jersey City has dropped 1 only six places, Paterson falts one place and Passaic five places. Trenton shows a drop of thirteen places being one - ^vinpre than Perth Amboy has dropped, yet Trenton shows a \ net growth of 125.9 per cent, in the value of her manufac- 1 tured products against Perth Amboy’s net growth of but 54 \ per cent. t want: t-erui /liuuuj may sun iai\e prine in ine laci mat . this city still ranks ahead of such places as Paterson, Passaic, < ! Camden and Trenlon, it is evident that something must he t done to boost Perth Amboy it' the city is not .to lose still more 1 ground. What is the remedy and how is is to be applied? t There are but two ways whereby the value of manufac- i tured products of a city can be increased. Either there must ! be more industries adding to the variety of products and in- i oreasing the number, or in the industries already established r must be permitted to grow so as to increase their output. There have been no new industries of any size to locate 1 t in Perth Amboy for some time. In fact, the city has lost i • two, the roofing plant of the Barber Asphalt Company which f was burned and was rebuilt in Woodbridge township, and ’ the United Lead Works which was burned and has not as i yet been rebuilt. What is the city doing to bring new indus- ! | tries here? Why is it impossible to get the people of the j city together in some civic organization such as the Chamber 1 of Commerce is supposed to lie? Petty knocking, fault- ! finding and indifference have prevented such movements J J from succeeding, yet it is through the aclivities of these civic < bodies that the city is advertised and boosted. How long are the people of Perth Amboy, including the business men ' and manufacturers, to continue this attitude of personal • likes and dislikes, which prevents a getting together for the , benefit of the city as a whole? Other cities are forging ahead and Perth Amboy is dropping behind because of the lack of civic pride and enterprise on the part of her citizens. But still more important is the attitude of the govern ing body of the city toward such industries as Perth Amboy already has. Even when local industries want, to increase their facilities so as to add lo the value of (he manufactured j products of the city, the Board of Aldermen will not let i them. The manufacturers have to fight for everything they get here instead of having the co-operation and support of ; the city. The efforts of the Standard Underground Gable Company to secure sufficient railroad sidings so as to in- : crease the size of their plant and thereby add greatly to the j ; value of the products of that concern alone, are thwarted. The dry docks could secure contracts lor the construction t of large vessels if il had the railroad facilities it asks for. ] The Roessler & Hasslacher Chemical Company has an enor- 1 mous building standing practically idle on the waterfront • which could doubtless be utilized lo increase the value of \ the output of this enormous industry if the aldermen would j show a little desire to help rather than hinder in the way of s furnishing railroad facilities. , Perth Amboy is going to continue to drop behind as j long as this antagonism to the local industries continues. ' They are going to do their developing elsewhere. Perth ! Amboy is the loser. The city has already dropped from j eighteenth to thirtieth place among the cities of the country in the value of manufactured products. At the same time ; this city shows the smallest percentage of gain of any of the l seventy-seven cities mentioned. It is time for Perth Amboy i to wake up, change her tactics and do something really worth while for the community. A HUMAN NATURE STUDY f " > ' s • /'L THis is sone. ^I'doNt believe T some HoT DAT !

Hankie WASHINGTON, July 31.—Soils lay an important part in the econo mic development of civilization, and cienco has begun to take serious ac ount of this fact. Dr. C. F. Mar ut of the Department of Agriculture as just returned from Europe where e made a study of soils. He em hasizes the need for this country i know the exact soil condition in ther parts of the world. The amount of lime or organic matter in the soil of some distant ountry may not seem to concern his country to any great extent, yet his one factor may vitally affect he future of our export trade in ome agricultural staple. The Importance of knowing about oil conditions of other parts of the rorld is greater now than it was a ew years ago and such information rill constantly become more signif cant. Considerable areas in Europe nd South America are still used for rrazing by nomadic peoples whc lave not reached a settled agrloul Jral stage. Cultivation of the plains f Rumania was begun only about 0 years ago. And enormous stretch s of land in Uruguay, Argentina, nd southern Brazil, similar in soil onditions to our corn belt, are not nder cultivation. A InnAn arc lanted In crops and when farm rna hinery and seientilie methods come ito general use in these sections the nlted States may And that it has ome new and powerful competitors i "vorld trade. The South Ameri an countries will most likely grow orn If their soli conditions are suit ble. If the Argentine planter is kely to become a dangerous com iclitor of the corn belt farmer in his country we should know tits notabilities and ho ready. Some parts of Kurope, too, mal 0 into corn raising more extensive y in the future. As Kurope be omes more prosperous and the poo ile consume more meat there wil e a greater demand for corn to feed lock. Kurope may buy more grair rom this country then, but if it car le raised there cheaply and in quatn Ities the United States may be ask d for smaller Instead of larger ship, nents. Knowledge of Kuropean sol; onditions will help agricultural ex lerts to prophesy about these mat era with some degree of accuracy Europe's Corn Belt Thus, part of Rumania has a tell if black soil somewhat like the corr and of the central Dakotas, Nebras ta and Kansas. This is signiHean t hen you consider that Rumania it low the great corn exporting rountn >f Kurope. Dr. Marhut had though! t possible that with cheap labor it Curope there might be a large aret n Rumania capable of producint •orn as cheaply as this country doe: f Rumania should adopt our meth ids of farming. After spendinf mmo time in Rumania and studyini he soil, however, he thinks it un ikely thnt that country will hecoim 1 corn growing rival of the Unite, bates. They have no land that ii he exact equivalent of our grea ■orn belt. This is one Instance In whio! icIentiAc study of soil has made i lossible to forecast agricuitura irobabilities in a general way. Dr darbut believes that we should lean vhat we can from European ejper ence and research and apply tin •oneluslons to our own problems These problems are numerous fo ve have a greater variety of soil han any other country on earth ant il products. t?e think of a kim if soil as being peculiar to sonv me region. Yet again and agah (riking similarities occur. The sol if the fertile Hungarian plains i eproduced in a strip of land run ling through parts of Minnesota, thi Dakotas, Nebraska. Iowa and Kan as. The famous sod of Ireland is oi oil very like that along the coas if Washington and Oregon. Mots limate and heavy rainfall of thi test coast region are favorable fo trass. The land is heavily timbered iut where the trees are cut out then ire acme line grass fields. Ireland if course, was cleared hundreds o ears ago. perhaps 2,000 years, an< •ainfali is belter distributed there But this country may yet product trass to rival the emerald sod o Grin. The Kentucky bluegrass that wi ihlink of at typically America' trowa on limestone soil vary mud ike that of northern France. Th< French soil is somewhat shallower grass land of Europe, and is used for raising small grain and fruit and for pastures. It is interesting to find that the soils of old tyrhemia are almost iden tical with those of southeastern Pennsylvania, known as Chester soils; and that the soils of southern Germany resemble the best pait of Kentucky, the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and the Lebanon und Cumberland Valleys of Pennsylvania. With all the variety of soils in this country immigrants of Germany and Bohemia have settled in regions where the soils are similar to those at home. This may account to some extent for the success of the Ger man farmers in the East. Greece Like Arizona Few of us have ever thought of the soil of Greece as being anything like land in this country, yet there is a parallel. Dr. Marbut compares the soils of Greece td those near Tucson, Arizona. In both regions the soils are reddish in color and have a hardpan subsoil. The Greek farmers had the Ideal of producing thei rown grain, wine and oil, and sitting under their own fig trees, and the farmers of Greece still grow grapes, olives, figs, and wheat. i ujia cue lucci^ic uiut; uevauisc j of the climate. The rainfall of Ath ens is only about 12 inches, and it all falls in-winter. Irrigation is almost Impossible because there are no riv er* from which sufficient water can be taken. When you have a country that is too dry to grow alfalfa, grass, or clover there is not much that can be done to rotate crops. Dr. Marbut expects to make chein dcal analysis of 250 soil samples he has brought from Kurope, and he says that analyses of the Greek and other soils may show differences that observations in Europe did not reveal. Dr. Marbut spent several day* col lecting samples and studying .ho soils on the higher part of the Ro man Cainpagna. Much of the land about Rome is poor. However, there are soils near the city, mostly south and some to the east, that have been farmed for many centuries and still produce good crops of alfalfa and wheat. Little live stock is produced and apparently very little fertilizer used. Samples of soil from alfalfa and wheat fields along the Applan Wnv were brought back for analy sis. European civilization was develop ed on poor soils and the people of western Kurope have struggled for centuries with the soil problem. Dr. Marbut says. In this part of Europe the first attempt to improve farm land came through the discovery that animal manures enrich soil. Then they discovered that by resting the soil one year in three production would be increased. That was the. beginning of the three field system of feudal times. Even that did not solve the prob lem of raising crops on impoverish ed soil. Eventually man discovered ! 'hot by growing grass he not only | helped the soil but he could feed more stock and so have more anirnai waste to put on the soil. The latest stage in soil history was the discov l ery of chemical fertilizers about 75 . years ago. Now there ar* soil bureaus and ■ experts.

Mid-ocean islands became i more Important with their use as l coaling stations then cable lines res | cued other land dots, such as Yap, i j from obscurity. The Azores ftg- j ] ur_ed as a halfway station in the first i trans-Atlantic flight. Now the Can aries. where Columbus halted on I his voyage of discovery, end the first leg of the Lisbon-to-Rio de Janeiro trip of Portuguese air men." With this introduction the Na tional Geographic Society issnes from Its Wahington, D. C., head quarters the following bulletin on the Canaries: "If you will picture seven articles a juggler has just thrown into the air, and Imagine these seven arti cles to be pear, a shoulder #f mut ton. two gulf balls, the broken off • nil of a putting iron, and a lady’s spring hat with the visor down and it feather in the back—you will have a fair idea of one of the most Interesting island groups in the world. Had Churches in Caves "Interesting, that is. whether you are looking for the people with a whistling language or the arbo real curiosity known as the dragon tree, whether you choose to hunt for the archeological traces of abor igines who worshipped in caves or to mingle with the vivacious crowds in the Calle del Castillo of an even ing when the band plays. "The highest mountain rising from the Atlantic ocean is to be found on Ttneriffe; a volcano crater on Palma it so large that Its weath er conditions vary from those of the surrounding country. This crater, Gran Caldera, is four miles Jn di ameter and In much of its area is between twelve and thirteen times as the Washington monument. The natives will tell you that a mighty upheaval in Palma pitched the mountain mass over to tenerlffe, and in proof point to the mighty cavity left on Palma. x imim u s u^ugraim)' uuuu "Plutarch's geographical com ment about the Canaries need not be revised. He said, ‘Rain seldom falls there, and then falls moderately: while they have usually soft breezes which scatter such rich dews that the soil is r.ot only good for sowing and planting, but spontaneously produces the most exalted fruits: and those in such abundance that the Inhabitants have only to Indulge themselves In the enjoyment of ease and leisure The air is always pleasant and salubrious through the happy temperature of the seasons, and their insensible -transition into each other.’ "The most remarkable and least Btudied phenomenon of the Cana ries is the whistling language of the natives of Gomera. The townsfolk do not know the whistling vocabu lary and their reports of the range of expression the mountain folk attain by using four or live notes of varying intensity and length may readily be exaggerated. That such a language does exist, developed beyond the stage of signals, is at tested by travelers. It is extremely useful gnd this little Island of big distances and high mountains, where cattle raising is the principal industry. Here, too some of the na tives dwell in caves, as did the Guanches, whose blood still flows in veins of the natives, though the pure type become extinct after the Spanish conquest early in the fif teenth century. Where Columbus Halted "On Gomera, also, is the village of San Sebastian where Columbus provisioned his voyage to the un known West, and there still stands the church which he attended to pray for the success of his quest. Few travelers visit the hill encircled, red-roofed, isolated little village whence Columbus departed—Sep tember 7, 1492.

Our greatest are not stars wht> live by exhibition of themselves and abilities, but quiet people who think and work in modest seclusion Walklcy, brilliant dramatic critic of the London Times, makes this observation. It is true. History will remember the “great” men who plunged the world into the "World War. History will paint in bright col ors the men who carried on the work of destruction for more iha$ four years. ' But history will be strangely silent about a greater than these—the plodders who now are patiently repairing the dam- ^ ages, toiling to rebuild civilization burned out to its very $ skeleton. - The men who really are repairing tne war s damages are not the Prominent Gentlemen w ho got their names in the news paper headlines. The real builders are the farmers toiling to restore food supply to normal the mechanics furnishing the materials to replace what was destroyed and the unad- i vertised millions contributing their daily mites to the war debt. i A peculiar thing, is fame And always it is unfair, the lucky individual getting more than he deserves. Watt is famous for inventing the steam engine. Yet his discovery of the principle would have been worthless if it had net been for the unknown thousands who patiently had worked out mechanical movements and methods of converting iron ore into steel. All Watt did wrns gather up these loose ends, put them together, add a new idea and march into history with credit for the whole thing. All famous men “borrow” nine-tenths of their invention, skill or art. Men work with .many things, from farm soil to metals and chemical magic. In proper combinations, these bring fame. But the greatest material man works with is man himself —his character And the greatest men are the ones who emerge with the greatest character. Character, by its example and contagion is the only thing a man can build with permanence. It outlasts the Pyramids. And you, as you look back over your life, probably will agree that the greatest person you ever met was some indi \idual who never rose above obscurity. Yet he made a suc cess of his life Fame is futile. Crave it not. What counts most is per sonal satisfaction with what we have made of ourselves and cur life’s work. We leave this world as we enter it—alone— and in the last analysis each man is his own best judge.
