More Information Regarding an Ancient People Found. Evidences Accumulating to Show That Population of Missouri Val ley in Prehistoric Times Came From South America. Omaha, Neb. —“Evidences are ac cumulating to show that the ancient people who in prehistoric times so thickly populated the Missouri Val ley originally came from Mexico, Cen tral America, or even South America, and there has just come to light what appears to be one more link in this chain of proof, says Prof. R. L. Gilder, archaeologist, University of Nebraska. “What appears to be more than a coincidence presents itself through a queer-looking face mask secured by C. N. Dietz, of this city, from a cav ern in the Mexican state of Morelos, about 150 miles south of the City of Mexico. The coincidence comes from the fact that several years ago. while pursuing an archaeological survey in Sarpy county, Nebraska, I discovered a figurine which, placed side by side with the ancient Mexican mask, is almost an exact counterpart of the lat ter figure, which came from a sacred cave 2,500 miles south of the point where my figurine was discovered. “The Mexican mask shows that it was intended for suspension, possibly In some sacred chamber, as it ap pears to represent a deity of the peo ple to whom it originally belonged The ears are pierced for rings and the facial expression is one of a type not seen nowadays.

The ears of the Nebraska face show that they, also, have been pierced and then broken off. The Nebraska specimen is burned as hard as the Mexican image. “It is interesting to surmise and speculate upon how these two figures bearing identical faces, should have been parted by 2,500 miles of desert, mountains and plains and great rivers. It ccuhl scarcely be an accident. Both must have been made from the same conception of a god or a general fa cia! type cf a people. Was one a copy o 1 the other, or were they each a cepy of some great god so well known as to be worshiped by races so widely separated as those of Ne braska and southern Mexico? “A Japanese friend, a graduate of Yale, and a man of wide reading and expei i nee assures me the Nebraska head Is prehistoric Japanese in every a J * Head From Nebraska. detail, and he also says the same type of underground houses found along the Missouri river in Nebraska can be found today in Japan.

Department of Agriculture Recom mends Methods of Culture for Types of Weed Suited Only to Weil Defined Areas. Washington.—Each important to bacco district of the United States produces a type of tobacco for special purposes of manufacture or export. The methods of growing and handling a crop must vary according to type of leaf desired, and therefore accord ing to the particular districts where it is grown. The United States de partment of agriculture has just is sued a bulletin on “Tobacco culture" which recommends methods for the production of various American types. The bulletin emphasizes the fact that overproduction is a constant me nace in all the established centers of tobacco growing and that the develop ment of the industry in new sections on a large scale is hardly advisable at present. Another reason why to bacco culture in untried sections may result in failure is that the leaf pro duced will not be quite right in type, and therefore it will not find a sat isfactory market. The commercial value of tobacco is influenced to a greater degree by par ticular soil and climatic conditions than is that of almost any other im portant crop. This has caused the industry to become highly specialized and the trade looks regularly to well defined areas for the various types of leaf it requires. As tobacco grows readily over so large an area it is not strange that many farmers experiment with it and often secure seeming success. That is, the plants grow readily but when it comes time to sell the crop the far mer can find no market. “1 have grown five acres of tobacco," a farmer writes from a district, where tobacco is not grown for the commer cial trade. “But there seems to be no market. Can the department of agri culture help me?” The department can only advise this farmer that conditions are such that even though his product appears to be of good quality he will probably be un able to market it, as the trade does not recognize his section as a tobacco producing area. Here we have the dif ference emphasized between tobacco and a crop like corn for which a mar ket may readily be found, no matter where it is grown if the quality is good. There are three general classes of toacco described in the new bulletin: (1) Cigar tobaccos. (2) Export tobaccos. (3) Manufacturing tobaccos. By manufacturing tobaccos are meant all types used in manufacture other than cigars. The manufactur ing and export classes, however, have much in common as regards cultural methods, and some types are used for manufacturing and for export; there fore these two classes are considered together as distinguished from the ci gar tobaccos. Each of these three classes of to bacco may be subdivided into types, depending on their special uses, meth ods of growing and curing, or on the variety of seed used. In the case of cigar tobaccos there are three prin cipal types, corresponding to the three parts of the cigar—wrapper leaf, bind er leaf, and filler leaf. In the manu facturing and export tobaccos are such types as the flue-cured, Virginia sun cured. White Burley, dark fire-cured, etc. These various types are pro duced on certain special types of soil and according to definite methods of growing, curing and handling the crop, in some cases the variety of seed used is also an important factor. The spe cial uses of the principal types em braced in the three fundamental classes of tobacco are brought out in connection with the cultural directions for the more Important types. A typical district for the culture of cigar togaccos is the Connecticut val ley. The new bulletin outlines brief ly the best cultural methods for this region. Detailed instructions are giv en on care of the seed bed, prepar ing and fertilizing the land, transplant ing and cultivating, and harvesting. The export and manufacturing types of tobaccos are grown mainly in Ken tucky, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia. Tennessee, West Virginia, southern Ohio and southeastern Indiana. Best methods for the culture of -the various types, are explained in the new bulletin. One of the most troublesome and expensive features of tobacco culture, particularly in the southern districts, is the control of numerous insects, which if not combated would often times completely destroy the commer cial value of the crop. Among the more important insects attacking the tobacco plant may be mentioned the tobacco flea-beetle, the tobacco “wire worm," cutworms, the hornworms, or “Greenworms” and the tobacco bud worm. Of these the hornworms, or "greenworms," are usually the most destructive. “Congress has appropriated $500,000 for the eradication of hog cholera.

It TOE SEA COAST ECHO, BAT ST. LOUTS; MISSISSIPPI are causing a far more serious ecoac mic loss to the American people than is the dangerous ailment which the pork supply of the country?” This question occurred to Senator J. E. Ransdell of Louisiana a few days ago. and the introduction of a bill pro viding for the appropriation of $500,- 000 for the encouragement of rural sanitation, with special reference to the eradication of malaria and typhoid, is the result of the southern member’s inquiry. When the introduction of the bill was announced briefly many per sons wondered how the government would spend a half million dollars in work to eradicate typhoid and malaria. Senator Ransdell’s bill provides for the work to be done under the authority of the United States public health serv ice because, through this bureau, the government is already carrying on re stricted investigations having the same object as the legislation which is now proposed. The work is now being pushed as fast as funds will allow, in a few states; the new legislation will permit it to be intensified and extend ed into every state where the diseases are prevalent. For several years the federal govern ment has been represented in malarial investigations by Dr. R. H. von Ezdorf, who has been detailed by Surgeon Gen eral Rupert Blue to work in a number of southern states in co-operation with municipal and state health authorities Headquarters for the work were estab lished in Mobile, and investigations have been carried on in various sec tions of Alabama. Arkansas, Florida. South Carolina, and at the present time a malaria survey is being made in North Carolina. The public health service has also carried on various typhoid studies, and it is planned to continue these investi gations so long as the amount of money available will permit the work to go on. The government’s health authorities are particularly anxious to lend aid and co-operate with state and municipal health authorities in all parts of the country in the work of eradicating both malaria and typhoid. Although these two diseases are caused by two entirely different germs and have no relation, the work for their eradication is similar and makes for the improvement of public health conditions generally. To guard against malaria it is nec essary to drain swamps and clean up other places where malaria-carrying mosquitoes breed, and to prevent ty phoid it is necessary to purify water, milk and food supplies in which the typhoid bacillus may be carried, and to improved system of sewage dis posal. The screening of houses is ad vised in the work to prevent both dis eases, keeping cut mosquitoes to guard against malaria and the germ carrying house fly to prevent the spread of typhoid. According to health authorities, if every community in the country did everything possible to guard its people against the two dis eases, malaria and typhoid, the I nited States would have an almost perfect s>stem of sanitation and a greatly im proved condition of the public health.

Captain Blaa veldt, skipper of the ship La Grace, would not have liked to be. termed a pirate. He termed himself "coo mander-in-chlef of a private man-of war.” He was popular in New Am sterdam (afterward New York) among his Dutch countrymen, but also In the neighboring English colonies of Boston and Virginia. Captain Blauveldt on the La Grace used to come sailing up the river with the Spanish prizes, which he sold at fair and resonable prices to his “custo mers” at New Amsterdam and in the English colonies. In 1648 came the peace of Munster between Spain and the Netherlands, which should have put a commander cl a private man-of war out of business. Great, therefore, was the astonishment of all the New Amsterdammers to see. in March. 1649, a year and a half after the treaty of peace. La Grace sailed up the riv er with the Spanish ship Tabasco, captured as a prize in the Gulf of Mexico. The gallant captain sw'ore he had never heard of any peace with Spain and that when he summoned the Tabasco to surrender the latter had answered by firing on him. Be sides, La Grace had been built in France and France and Spain were yet at w r ar. Notwithstanding these refutations, the capture was con sidered illegal and the Spanish ship was returned to its ow-ner. The cap tain and his partners in New Amster dam, very respectable citizens, did not appreciate these legal proceedings. As for the captain he left the colony for “an unknown destination.” And he was a handsome gentleman, “fair of complexion with gentle eyes and of high stature.” PLAY NECESSARY FOR CHILD Most Important for His Proper Devel opment, and There Should Be Safe Places Provided. “And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in the streets thereof.” Thus Zechariah in 520 B. C. But there W’ere few’er motor cars in Zechariah’s day than there are in ours. The children now need, for their play, some place safer than the street, declares the Craftsman. More important than the play ground, how’ever, is the play. It is well that children should play in a safe place, but it is absolutely neces sary that they should play somewhere if they are to grow up at all. For there is no doubt now, I think, in the minds of educators that play buiids the child. It is the method that na ture has provided for his development. Play indeed is the positive side of the whole phenomenon of infancy. The reason the higher animals, and man above all, are born so helpless and un formed is that they may be finished by this special method. It Is for the sake of play that infancy exists, that there is such a thing as a child at all. The child who is deprived of his chance to play is deprived of his op portunity to grow up. Asiatics Use Goat Skin Churns. Goat skin churns are the proper thing in the Asiatic deserts. They are the unique butter-making con trivances of the w orld. These churns resemble gigantic footballs, varying in size according to the extent of the family. They are constructed of goat’s skin sewed together in the form of a ball, with the hair side in. Cream is run into these bags un til they are about half full, and the balance of the space is filled with air from the churner's lungs. Then these churns are suspended from three sticks and a rocking motion begun. The air on the Inside is calculated to aid coaxing the butter from the cream. After the churning the prod uct is strained through cloth, for the goat's hair has a tendency to shed during the violent operations. No Occasion to Worry. Following a brief acquaintance and a hurried courtship, Sam Hawkins and Eliza Cook, colored, on the eve of the wedding were indulging in those sol emn self-confessions which such an occasion invites. “One thing Ah most fohgot to tell yuh, honey,” cooed Eliza. “Pse a somnambulist.” Somewhere she had run across the word, liked It, carefully remembered it, and at last had an opportunity to bring it into use. “Don’t wohy ’bout that,” replied Sam, with easy, chivalrous air, “ma fatheh wuz Mefodis’, ma muttheh wuz Biptis’, an’ Ah’m —well fur’s Ah’m con ce’ned Ah’d jes’ soon go to youah :hu’ch as any otheh.” Confirming the Book. Mr. Brown had been helping little eight-year-old May with her school work, and she had learned to believe implicitly in his knowledge. One day at dinner she asked Mr. Brown what the United States paid for Alaska. “A little over $7,000,000,” said he. “All right,” said May as she con sulted a slip of paper. “I looked it up in the encyclopedia.” “Why did you ask me, then?” said her father. “I wanted to see if the encylopedia was right.” Deceived, Little Willie was left alone with sister’s beau. “Mr. Chumpley,” he presently said, “what is a popinjay?” “Wh-why, a popinjay is a-a vain bird.” “Are you a bird, Mr. Chumpley?” “Certainly not.” “That's funny. Ma said you was a popinjay, and pa said there was no doubt about your bein’ a jay. an” sis ter said there was small hopes of your j poppin’, an how you say you ain’t a j bird at all.

HER IDEA OF A GENTLEMAN According to Ruling of Snobbish Ca nadian Miss, There Are Few of Them on Earth. There is an ancient British anec dote, still in perfectly good standing, which gives a definition of a “lady.” This states that the mistress of a house on returning from an after noon’s shopping was informed by her housemaid: “A lady was here to see you. Mum." Asked the mistress: “How do you know It w'as a lady?" Said the housemaid; “Because she was covered with Joolry and smelt of sherry somethin’ awful. Mum.” A New Yorker used to recall the anecdote in telling of a Canadian defi nition of a “gentleman” which he re ceived some years ago. * “I was at a dance in Ottawa,” he said, “the year before the Boer war. One of my partners was a snip of a miss who had virulent Anglomania. The talk- ran upon class distinctions, and she voiced some bizarre opinions as to the gulf between ’gentlemen and all other men. “ ‘Well, won’t you please tell me exactly what is a gentleman?’ I finally asked. “ She was puzzled, but just fer a moment. Her eyes ran around the room until they rested upon Lord Ava. the eldest son of the then Mar quis of Dufferin. “ ‘A gentleman,’ said my partner, ‘is a man who knows Lord Ava well enough to ask him for a match.’ ” NEW DISCOVERY ABOUT ANTS Scientist Asserts That the Insects Have a Regular Form of Saluta tion Among Themselves. Ants have long been known for their excessive industry, but from a curious communication which has just ap peared they seem to have surpassed all other insects by organizing an elaborate system of signaling. Professor Bugnion, who has recently investigated the habits of the white ant, reports -that the “soldiers” of that species give warnings or encouraging signals by knocking with their Jaws upon dry leaves, thereby emitting a crackling sound. Placing some of these ants on a big plate and covering it with paper, he found that the "sol diers” among the ants responded to his taps with a rustling, crackling sound. Moreover, apart from this audible signaling, there appears to be some inaudible form of signal, for the pro fessor asserts that the “soldier” ants salute the worker ants. To do this, "the insect stands firmly on its legs with the head raised and the body slightly oblique, and shakes itself for an instant with a convulsive shudder. This seems to mean some thing.” Nonsensical Question. Jakey, the lazy and overgrown son of a resident of the Bronx, was re cently haled before the magistrate in the Morrisama police court by his father, who charged him with being incorrigible, a deadly enemy of work in all its branches, staying out late at nights, smoking cigarettes and a few other habits unbecoming a boy on the threshold of manhood. The parent was mad clear through, and told the court in no soft language just what he thought his boy was coming to. “Does he strike you?” asked the judge of the young man’s father when the latter had cooled off somewhat. “Strike?” came back father. “Why, Mr. Judge, your honor, how can dot boy strike ven he doesn’t even woik?” —New York Tribune. Clothes and the Man. Sir Philip Warwick left this picture of Oliver Cromwell: “The first time that ever I took notice of him was in the very beginning of the parliament held in November, 1640, when I vainly thought myself a courtly young gentle man, for we courtiers valued ourselves much upon our good clothes. I came one morning into the house well clad, and perceiving a gentleman speaking whom I knew not, very ordinarily ap pareled, for it was a plain cloth suit, which seemed to have been made by an ill country tailor. His linen was plain, and not very clean, and I re member a speck or two of blood upon his little band, which was not much larger than his collar. His hat was without a hatband.” Calling on the New Family.
