In com mon usage the First century means the years A. D. 1 to 100; the Second century thh years 101 to 200 ; and the Nineteenth century the years A. D, 1801 to 1900. The Fifth century be fore Christ was 500 to 401 B. C. A century begins with the beginning of the first day in Its first year, and does not end until the close of the last day In Its hundredth year. The mode of reckoning is often confused with the common mode of stating the age of a person. A person born at the begin ning . of the Christian era would be called one year old during his second year, that is during the course of the year two; he would be called two during the year three; and forty dur ing the year forty-one, etc. Between Sisters.

London Carry Killing of a "Bobby" by a Crim inal Is Rare Occurrence, Says Former Inspector. MANY SOLDIERS ON FORCE Courts Support the Police Splendidly, Although a First Offender is Hardly Ever Sent to Jail Intoxication on Wane. New York. How London is policed by 2,200 constables over an area 30 miles in diameter without a revolver In the pocket of a "bobby'.' was dis cussed by Inspector A. J. Spriggs, honorary secretary of the London Met ropolitan Police Athletic association, who Is living at the New York Police club, according to the New York World. Don't Expect to Be Shot "Crime wave, you say?" he asked, quizzically, when questioned on the sit uation in London. Why, we have our good and bad spells, like you do here." He then explained that London ap points 1,000 constables a year. He said the force had been depleted by more than 1,000 during the war, many of the men never returning. But even in normal times, he explained, the de partment requires 1,000 new men an nually. "Have any of your policemen been killed by criminals, as happens here once In a while?" "Why, no; hardly ever; that would be a record," he replied. "How's that?" "Our men are not armed." "Why?" "No need for It a criminal does not expect to be shot, and I suppose he does not care to risk being found with a gun," responded the Londoner. Few Policemen Are Killed. London policemen are promoted "right off" for especially good work, In spector Spriggs explained. He said that almost every man entering the department in the last year or two had been a soldier. Sea Monster Found A sea monster at least SO feet long and probably of the squid or octopus family, was found in shallow water north of Soldier's Key recently, by Elmer E. Cfirretson of Miami. The piece of bone shown here weighs three tons, and Is 10 feet long. It is but part of the monster's skull and was rescued from sharks which were feasting on the carcass. LOST DIAMOND MINE FOUND Source of Beautiful Stones In Mexico Had Been Unknown for Many Years. Chicago. The lost diamond mine of Guerrero has been rediscovered, ac cording to advices from the City of Mexico.' A Mexican geologist, looking for mineral prospects In the state of Guerrero, It is said, stumbled upon the diamond mine by accident. Genernl Guerrero, after whom the state was named. Is credited with the discovery of the mine in the early part of the last century. When Em peror Iturblde snt upon tbe throne of Mexico Guerrero presented him with a number of splendid diamonds of im mense size. But Guerrero died with our disclosing the source of the treas ure, and nil knowledge of the where abouts of the mine died with him. Since his day many efforts have been made to locate the lost Golconda without success, and Mexicans had eoroe to believe its existence was a romantic myth. Police No Guns The London "copper" works an eight houi shift, during which he is allowed a half-hour for lunch. The pay is not as much as it is here, because the Lon doners are paid, housed and clothed. The married men live at home with their families and are allowed housing expenses. The killng of a policeman in Lon don is rare not one a year the In spector explained. He said the police orphanage, an institution for the care ant! rearing of dependent children of deceased policemen, was supported principally by the athletic activities of the police, coupled with concerts by the five bands maintained by the de partment and also by. the police min strel troupe. Public intoxication is on the wane Broncho Busting Near Its End Said There Will Be No More Wild Horses in Rocky Moun tain States. CIVILIZATION SPELLS FINISH Danrhu Ar Beina Fenced and No More Do Wild Horses Range the Plains of Wyoming and Adjacent States. npnver Colo. Broncho busters of th northern Rocky Mountain states are about to go out of business, accord in? to renorts from officials of wild West and frontier shows. The reason is there aren't any wild horses to bust. At least not around Wyoming and this part of the country. But down in Arizona they have wild horses to eat. There are 10,000 of them. They belong to the San Carlos Off Florida Coast GIANT BOMBING PLANE United States Army Is Building a New Type of Machine. Capable of Sinking Hostile Battleship 650 Miles Out, Officer Tells Sen ate Committee. " Washington, D. C -The army Is building a new type of giant bombing plane capable of sinking any hostile dreadnaught that ventures within 000 miles of American shores. This assertion was made before the senate military affairs committee by Col. T. H. Bane, army aviation service. Two of these planes are already nearing completion. They will be the biggest heavier-than-air machines in existence, am! capable of carrying a bomb weighing 10,000 pounds. They will cost $375,000. "Is there any conceded limit to the in London, the inspector said, for the "public houses" are open only from six to ten o'clock at night. Recently London has appointed policewomen, principally for welfare work and pa trol duty In the parks and public places. There was also recently en acted a law against possession of fire- aims although the criminal element, he emphasized again, does not carry a gun. Inspector Srriccs said the courts support the police "splendidly," al though a first offender is hardly ever sent to jail. Fooled by a "Scrap of Paper." Cincinnati, O. A scrap of paper prevented the theft of an automobile belonging to Virgil Frakey. a night school teacher. When he heard the engine of his car he hurried out of tho classroom In time to seize a youth, who gave his name as John John sey, Memphis, Tenn. Frakey had placed the piece of paper, between the points of the ignition coils, and when the engine went dead it gave Frakey time to get busy. Indians, who have a reservation not far from' Globe. But there Isn't much chance of getting the Arizona ponies for the broncho busters of Wyoming, for the Indians won't give them up. Growing Shorter. The day of the wild herd of horses roaming the plains of Wyoming and adjacent states has been growing rapidly shorter with the encourage ment of civilization. More and more ranches are being fenced in, herds of cattle are reduced or confined, and to make the matter worse for the ex istence of the wild steeds, oil drilling camps have been extended over wide areas of Wyoming, northwestern Colo rado and Utah. But down on the San Carlos Indian reservation there are 10.000 wild steeds, roaming at will over the fields, destroying mile after mile of grazing land which might be put into good use for cattle, and turning green grass of the prairie into a scrawny covering for their bones which hardly makes even a decent meal for an Indian. The cattlemen have tried to buy them, but the Indians wouldn't listen. The government, through A. H. Sy monds, Indian agent, offered to pur chase them at about $6 a head, invest the money in cattle and save th6 meat from the horses, giving It back to the Indians for winter food. Horses Are Worthless. But the Indians would have none of it. The horses are worthless, even for hides. They cannot be domesti cated and the meat Isn't much of a delicacy, but the Indians Insist on their age-old prerogative to have their herds out on the open prairie even as their fathers did. The Indians also have about 2,000 wild burros which they say they will keep. "And when an Indian makes up his mind," Symonds says, "you've got to have patience to get him to change it. They are proud of the horses arid burros for some reason, and although some of their leaders have tried to persuade them to accept the offers made, so far they have refused to sell."

Senator Len root, Wisconsin, asked. "We have not reached It yet." "Is it reasonably possible that they may attain such size as to make de struction of any dreadnaught beyond question?" Mr. Lenroot asked. . "Why, I believe that they have got ten to that point already," Col. Bane said. "There is one way to decide that, and that Is to try It." "You think they can destroy any dreadnaught?" Senator McKellar, Tennessee, asked. "Absolutely," Col. Bane replied. The committee was so Impressed with this and other testimony that It Increased the appropriation of $19, 000,000 made by the house for aircraft to $23,000,000, $5,000,000 to be spent in experiments and $7,000,000 for new aircraft.

I give all the credit to your medicine and shall always recom mend it very highly. " Mrs. H. H. Janssen, Millston, Wisconsin. How can women who are weak and sickly expect or hope to become mothers of healthy children? Their first duty is to themselves. They should overcome the derangement or debility that is dragging them down, and strengthen the entire system, as did Mrs. Janssen, by taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege table Compound and then they will be in a position to give their children the blessing of a good constitution. Simple, but Effective. A woman went to her doctor, com plained to him of her husband break ing out into violent tempers, and asked if ne could recommend a eure- "The remedy," replied the doctor. "is simple. I have here an excellent water which I give to most of my patients who suffer from the same complaint. Should your husband be come' violent again, you need only take half a cupful of the water in your mouth and 'hold it there for a few minutes; the warmer the water becomes in the mouth the more visibly will your husband's wrath melt away. Repeat the dose in very seveTe cases."' The water was1 ordinary well water. The result was domestic happiness. Mistakes We Often Make. There is a proverb which reads "The man who never made a mistake never made anything else." There is a great deal of truth in that saying. Sometimes We come across one of those perfect Individuals who claims never to make mistakes, but more often we find that these very same persons not only make mistakes but very grave ones. i New Source of Paper.
