It is only of quite recent years that the masked battery has enjoyed recog nition as the normal position for artil lery. Yet on the battlefields of Europe today they are indispensable. Inquisi tive aeroplanes will borer above, en deavoring to locate the position of ar tillery and, if successful, drop smoke bombs, so giving their artillerymen the -ange. To cope with this danger the guns - have to be cunningly hidden from aerial observation by means of crests of leafage, trees snd in many tnstaucei draped over with foliage precisely -in harmony with the color of the immedi ate surrounding* A good artillery officer can control his battery much like a fireman does his hose. Although his guns are hid den. he himself must be In a position overlooking the field of action in order to be able to give instructions to his gunners regarding the elevation of the guns, etc. If he Is obliged to travel away from his guns hib information is transmitted either by means of tele phones, signals or a chain of orderlies. —Pearson's.

"Tbe deadest university in th« world"—such is tbe unenviable dis tinction of El Azbar, the great Moslem university at Cairo. This "institution of learning" schools its 11,000 students on the (Ptolemaic theory of the uni verse, which makes the earth the ten ter of the solar system, around which tbe sun and stars revolve. But a pas sion for real education has begun t« sweep north Africa. Schools are meet ing even in the desert, wherever a teacher can be found. The schoolgirl, 'formerly an unknown quantity, now numbers 25,000 strong In Egypt. North Africa has two mighty colleges, tior don Memorial and Aesiont. In mission schools 18,000 children are being train ed for tbe citizenship of tomorrow. The day of El Azhar is passing.—Wil lard Price in World Outlook. Radio -active' Diamonds. Sir William Crookes says that dia mends become highly radio-active when exposed to the action of rudium and that the acquired radio-activity con tinues for years -vith apparently un diminished force. Sir William has a diamond that ab<ot twelve years ago was exposed to radium for some months. After the exposure it was found to be highly radlo-u-tlve and af fected a photographic plfm;. The dia mond has never been near radium since. It has been carried about loose in Sir William's pocket and has even been boiled in strong acids, yet it Is now virtually as active as ever. The Qerman Empire. A century ago there was no German empire—only a number of German states whose aggregate wealth and In come were probably less than those of France. Now united Germany Is es timated to possess an Income of nearly $10,000,000,000 and accumulated wealth of about $80,000,000,000. During the century Germany's population has grown from 24.000,000 to more than 67,000,000, or ISO per cent. Three Richest Nations. According to tbe best tables and tbe latest the three richest nations ate: Tbe United States. $190,000,000,000; Great Britain, $80,000,000,000; Prance, $65,000,000,000. Germany follows hard after France with $80,060,000,000. Rus sia is put st $40,000,000,000.-New York American. ' War, Wheat and Rye. The four leading continental coun tries at war have a total wheat area of about 108,000.000 acres and a rye area of 102.000.000 acres. The war means probably a loss of 42.000,000 acres of wbeat and rye In France, Ger many, Austria-Huusrarv and Russia. A Greeehopper Plague. Grasshoppers have become such a menace to crops in San Salvador that the government is preparing a novel method of estermlnatlpn. one used with good results In South American countries. Virus has been procured from Brazil, and numbers of the inoc ulated insects will be freed in the swarming droves. The disease la said to be remarkably fatal to the pests. FINANCB WAR SPECIALTIES AGAIN CONSPICUOUS IH MARKET Tork Air Brake Ascends Two Points to the Now High Price of 98— -Baldwin Locomotive and Pressed Steel Oar Also Biae By Attociated Preti, New York, April 17.—The so-called war specialties were again conspicuous in the oarly stock dealings. Npw York Air Brake ascended 2 points to the new high price of 98, while American Lo comotive waa inclined to react, falling back 4% points to 56 on opening sales of 1,800 shares. Baldwin Locomotive and Pressed Steel Car rose 3 to 5 points, and numerous other stocks in this particular class, including Bethle hem Steel, were higher by 1 to 2 points. Speculative favorites shared in the rise, Reading, St. Paul and U. S. Steel gain ing a point each. Trading was very active, but without the wikl movements i of the preceding session. To-day's two-hour session was accom panied by a further upward whirl of prices. Virtually all the industrial and equipment issues which are said to have received war contracts added to recent gains, over-night advances rang ing from 3 to 7 points. Almost the sole exception was American Locomo tive. which fell back at the outset anil, though making partial recovery, failed to come within striking distance of the previous day's high figure. U. S. Steel was the real feature by reason of its activity. It sold at 59%, a new rec ord for the current movement. Other speculative favorites, including Read ing, St. Paul and Amalgamated, also ascended to higher levels. The close was Bonds were firm. QUOTATIONS. • • Furnished by H. W. Suavely, Broker.

Turkish baby looks very queer In his odd dress. He wears wer his shirt a kind of padded gown, something Ilka a bathrobe, and on his little bead he wears a bright red silk cap with a tassel of seed pearls. To keep all evil awuy from the buby one or more charms tire fastened to the tassel. His arras and legs are bound tightly after they are straightened out by his nurse, and when he Is all fixed be is put in a little bed and covered with •several warm pads. In addition to this a thin red veil Is put over all. When he is all ready his father comes In to see him for the first time. If the child Is a hoy, the father Is doubly pleased. He takes the child up very tenderly in hla arms and carries Mm out of the room. Just outside the door he rests a minute and prays. After he prays three times he repeats the name chosen for the baby and this Is tho way the baby la christened. When the child is three days old a celebration Is held and old women who make a regular business of tills go to ' the different houses Inviting the ladles to the party. At each house they tell the day of his birth and the name of the baby and urge the people to come. On the day of celebration the people arrive from early in the morn ing until late In the afternoon. Nearly all bring presents for the baby's mother, and each person as she gives her pres ent to the mother expresses a pleasant wish for the child. The.t hardly notice the baby, for the mother Is afraid of bad luck if too much attention is paid to It The few who do look at him say how ugly he is or something like that and this de lights the mother, who knows they do not mean what they say. If the parents are rich sweet sherbet or coffee and candies, cakes and Ices are served as refreshments. If they are poor coffee and fruits are offered, but the entertainment, is much the same. The ladies talk and laugh and cat. until they are ready to leave. Another great event is the baby's first bath. This happens when he is eight, dnys old, and his mother and her friends may have a bath, too, if they wlßh. The baby bathes first, then his mother and then the visitors. This bath takes a long time and all the time slaves play sweet music and food is served three or four times.—Portland Oregonlan.
