Copperas a reddish, ductile, metallic element which has been known to and used by the human race from the most remote periods. Its alloy with tin (Bronze) was the first metallic compound in common use by mankind, and so ex- I tensive and characteristic was its em ployment in pre-historic times that the epoch is known as the Bronze Age. This metallic element is found in many parts of the world. In li''0 the United States produced over ;"00.(KM) tons. It is Xound in Michigan in great quantities as a free element. California, Arizona, Utah and Montana produce it, but in these states it is more in ore deposits. -Copper has been one of the great mediums of civilization and is constantly growing in importance. In ancient times pure copper was almost exclusively used. Now it is used as an alloy with many other metals, giving it a wide field of usefulness. The one big field, however, where pure copper is used is the electrical industry, for it is used in almost everything you touch electrically. From the big genera tors and transformers at the power houses to the transmission lines, sec ondary lightjng circuits and even the small motor on your sewing machine, copper is a necessary factor. For the transmission of electric en ergy, copper is the best known conductor, and it is from the great lines of copper reaching out from the generating plants Today PRINCESS THEATRE , ir.

Harold Carpenter of Bristol was able stories about his experience. He en tered into communication with the So viets to buy diamonds once, the property of Russian nobles and the churches. He was sbown a trunkful of stones dumped in without any attempt to separate or classify them. r Negotiations had. been progressing favorably for two-weeks, when the mer chant attempted to fix a definite price. The Soviet officials asked him to wait a few days, when, they said, they would have several more trunkfuls of diamonds to dispose of. But the merchant fled. The prospect of nuch wholesale quan tities of diamonds being-unloaded ou the market, threatened, to wreck prices. It is generally suspected in 'Russia that where diamonds are being collected in such large quantities there is ample op portunity for leakage. Diamonds are so compact a form of wealth that they can be smuggled more readily than any, other object. The temptation is naturally great. The army of Soviet agents en gaged in collecting these bushels of dia monds are suspected of secreting many stones atid selling them for their private gain. A fortune can be gained in this way in an hour. , - 5 ';. t- The House of Bigger, Better Pictures Today Presents up for last year's drouth. When sun chine was necessary it was on hand. Unless some unprecedented weather condition develops between now and the timolol harvest, iiractically every bushel of seed that was planted last autumn and tins spring seems sure to bear fruit. Rve fields are- higher than a man's head, the ears fairly drooping with kernels.- are waving and browning through out the Volga and central Russia, while the wheat is coming up in good shape in Siberia and the Ukraine. Potatoes and other vegetables ' are flourishing. Cattle which looked like skeletons in the winter are fattening on rich green pasture land. In some localities stricken last year by the drouth an unusual, phenomenon has Iicii noticed. (Jrain sown in the spring of l!21, which failed to sprout at all last summer has come up this year to swell the small sowings which were available in the spring of 1!(22. In other places, where the grain was so short and undeveloped last autumn as to be un worthy of harvesting, these dwarf plants drop;wd their seed and this, too. has sprouted under the rains and sunshine. Oenerally speaking the ground seenus to have gained strength during the fa mine year, and the rich nitrates which u big 1!21 crop would have' exhausted were left in the soil to fatten the ker nels and strengthen the stalks of this summer's grain. The; areas sown this year perhaps were les than 'last in many . provinces, but th:- crop itself is so good that the yield is expected to he 'more than three and a to the substation and from the substation through the network of distribution lines , half billion poods of grain for all Ru sia. a billion more than last year.

Rut, hitherto, it one wanted a copy of a town charter is sued by Vermont, he has not been able to find it except in manuscript at the ollice of tho secretary of state. There has long beeh a considerable demand for these for lonl and lnstori cat matters. The proposed volume is to show also by reference where infor mation regarding town bounds, names, proprietors, etc., may be found in print or record. Interest in this book is rpiickened lecnuso it will include refer ences to all tha 170 maps recently re stored to the state after a visit of nearly 100 years in the West, through the i iiomrhtfulness of the great grand sou of John W. Chandler, who presented two books of plans to the Vermont His torical society. In the latter part of the ISth cen tury, dames Whitelaw had a famous land olViee at live-rate and from his long prominence as surveyor-general of Vermont, Whitelaw acouired great Met-tige as an expert surveyor. At White'aw's death, most of his papers were bought bv John . (handler, of Pnchnm. who was a large dealer in wild lands in Essex and Caledonia oiinties. His maps, now recovered. show neat, accurate draughting to show the divisions of towns into Jots tor tlie original proprietors" and usually the names of the proprietors and which lots thev each drew, as well as roads. streams, etc.. and the two books (large ly covering the same towns twice) con stitute treasure trove such as is not likely to be found again after such lapse f time . since death ot the draughtsman. I'here was a treat interest stirred lv the plans of Samuel C. Crafts (ex-gov ernor), which were copied for the sec retary of state s oluce noout t.i years ago. us they snoweu similar uaia ior nearly ;0 towns and apparently date from IS 10. ' Rut the Crafts lnok plates besides Chandler's, lioth for the reason that (both beinir well drawn and accurate) Chandler's has nearly twice as many as (rafts' and still more because there now arises a strong suspicion that Crafts copied from Chandler s, which had been so lone in use that it had to le re-bound in 1S:50. In any case the mans are of great interest and value and the book now under way .will give the general reader a good introduction to them, as well as to the original charters issued by Ver mont. It. will be recalled that Vermont drew very much more population than other nearby states after the close of the Revolution, largely by " reason of the wit of our forefathers (in great con trast to the other New England states, which were under heavy burdens of war taxes), who by selling the vacant lands of Vermont to form new towns served the double purpose of raising money not felt by her citiens and of attrnHing large numbers of desirable, aibit;ous people in to cast their lots with the new towns w''ich the charters fronted -out of the wilderness.
