He was an instantaneous hit. And
best of all he is unspoiled. To be

world's metropolis is quite enough to

The Russian bazaar at the SeventyFirst
armory was probably the most
spectacular charity affair ever held
In New York. There was not a society
woman in New York who was
not present. Among prominent people
I saw there were Col. Roosevelt, Yincent
ABtor. Arthur Iselin, Ogden
Mills and Flnley J. Shephard.
The star features of the entertainment
were Louis H. Chalif and Anna
Pavlowa, two of the most famous of
tho Russian dancers. It is quite surprising
to see how these dances have
won the admiration and affection of
New York audiences.
The minute either of them appeared
the Armory was fairy bursting
with applause. At another charity
affair wore professionals who danced
the fox trot and modern dances were
the attractions there was very little
applause.

BUREAU OF MIES
EFFECTS SAVINGS
By the Promotion of the Manufacture
of Radium and
of Gasoline.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 11.?Manufacture
of radium, worth more than a
million dollars; a saving of more
than ?20,000,000 worth of natural
gas id the Blackwell field of Oklahoma;
manufacture of gasoline at a
cost of six cents a ga'lon; development
of an electrical furnace which
promises to wipe out losses of $10,1)00,000
a year- in the melting of
brass, and the saving of many lives
through the promotion of scientific
mining methods are among the
achievements of the federal bureau of
mines outlined In the annual report
of the director. Van H. Manning.
The manufacture of radium was
accomplished in co-operation with
the National Radium Institute which
Furnished capital of $300,000 necessary
to develop an economical method
of extracting the precious metal
from the carnotlte ores of the West.
Flight and one-half grams of radium
were produced at a cost of less than
$40,000 per gram, which in open
market would have cost between
$100,000 and $120,000 a gram. The
greater part of the product was
turned over to two great hospitals
for use in the treatment of cancer,
from which its is estimated there are
75,000 deaths each year in the United
States.
The institute suppMed the ore,
plant and machinery and the bureau
of mines spent $35,000 developing
Lhe process. For its part, the government
received at least $100,000
worth of radium which will be used
for scientific purposes. The method
evolved has been patented for the
government and may be* used free
hv' nnvnnia wtfViJn fVin .QtntPfi.
The saving of $20,000,000 worth
of natural gas in the Blackwell field
was accomplished by use of the bureau's
new niethod of drilling wells.
It includes a process of sealing .the
gas in its original reservoir until
marketing time. Oil operators In
IvanBaB and other states have adopted
the method.
The new procesB of manufacturing
gasoline was evolved with the Rltt- j
man furnace which makes it possible j
to take the waste gas oil of Californ- !
it which is worth two cents a gallon
and make from it gasoline at a coBt of i
six cents a gallon. The report an-j
nounces that the Rfltman process Is!
a commercial success and that the
bureau is ready "to give to the public
a commercial cracking process,
free of royalty which will make available
for internal combustion engines
large quantities of otherwise unavailable
fractions of petroleum."
In the District of Columbia, by advising
the government in purchases
of coal the bureau effected a saying
of $50,000 and the report estimates
that if the same thing were - done
throughout the government service
the annual saying would total $375,000
a year. The entire country, the
report says, could save millions annually
by following the same methods.
In studies for recovering metal
wastes in brass melting, the bureau
lias developed an electric furnace
which gives promise of eliminating
wastes of $10,000,000 a year at the
present rate of great production and
high prices.
In its work of safety for miners,
tiie Dureau nas approvea types 01
electric miners lamps which are being
installed at the rate of 100,000
a year and will eliminate the cause
of many fatal explosions.
The iron mines of Minnesota, the
report says, may in the future obtain
power for their operation from fuel
taken from the nearby peat bogs instead
of transporting coal a thousand
miles.
In California, investigation showed
a large number of deep gold miners
affected with hook worm. Measures I
were Installed which are expected to
stamp out the disease in a few years.
Investigation also was made of miners
consumption in the Joplin, Mo.,
district and recommendations were
made: which promise to lengthen the
lives-of workers there.

PLAGUE OF
IS GOING S<
Insects Together with an Un- i
precedented Drouth Threat- t
en to Reduce Crops. J
<ar MtociATio nuf) '
BUEiNOS ALKES, Dec. 11.?The *
plague of locusts that has assailed the s
crops ox mo nortnern provinces oi tne
republic is slowly working Its way
southward. These insects, together
with an unprecedented drought,
threaten to reduce the crops by half,
and In some sections by an even greater
percentage.
The locust comes from some part of
the unexplored region of southern
Brazil and pours over the country in
great streams so thick and long as to
often darken the sun. From Pena
there comes a despatch saying that a
stream- extending over thirty hilometers^haa
settled upon the fields and
left no green thing in that part. The
young, hatched from the millions of
c.ggs deposited, have in places covered
the railway so thickly as to impede
traffic and trains have been stalled
until the insects have been shovelled
from the tracks and burned in ditches.
The government is waging a vigorous
light but seems to be making little
headway. The department of agricultural
defense has 20,000,000 meters of
metallic barriers for the purpose of
penning swarms which are then
burned, trampled by farm animals or
buried. This is accomplished because
the young locust is without wings. It
much resembles a young grasshopper '
except its coloring is much brighter, red
and yellow, black and green, pre- !
dominating.
From the eggs of the flying locusts,
which are always deposited on the '
hard roads, millions of these bright 1
hued, hopping insects come to assault '
the fields on either side. Besides the (
wire barriers the government is also rising
an apparatus which resembles
a gasoline blow pipe. The farmers are
being instructed to dig trenches aboik
their fields, drive the hopping locusts 1
into them and with the aid of the gas- <
oline blow pipes burn the mass. Mil- 1
lions have already been thus destroyed i
but telegraphic reports from all over '
the northern half of the republic re- :

So serlouB has become the situation,
hat the government has threatened to
Ine all farmers who fail to maintain
:orps of men for the purpose of flghtng
the pest, and the railways have
>een asked to transport free of charge
ill locust fighting apparatus.
Devastated fields threaten to occasion
the starvation of many head of J
:attle and the railways, at the request
>f the government, have made a
.wenty-flve per cent reduction in the
ates for the transportation of live
stock, to remain effective until February
28 of next year. By this means j
stock can he hauled from the devasated
regions to provinces of the
South. The lives of thousands of ani

The progress of the swarms of flying
ocusts is daily being telegraphed
ihead, direction and speed of flight 1
jeing given so that the farms about i
:o be attacked can prepare. These
:elegraphlc notices are published in
ihe press and have grown to occupy
columns.
The linseed crop has already gone.
At times a million tons of this has been
exported annually to the United States,
rhe promised shortage of the wheat
crop has caused a considerable advance
in the price of bread and the
Agrarian League has petitioned the J
government for the imposition of an
embargo on the shipment of wheat in
>rder "to obviate further exploitation
ot the public." This is the first time
any such a request has been made in
Argentine, one of the wheat and meat A
storehouses of the world. _
At the age of 75, Pincus Rothstein ;
