Incorporated Blank Forms for Sale by Reveille NO MORE ART IN THE HOME Btingalows and Apartments of Today Have No Place for Great Pio tures of Past. "The future of art will be in John L. Balderston quotes George Moore in The Atlantic, "As I have said, after the art of temple, the cathedral, and the palace, came the art of the house, which was the last phase ; for now the art of house is dead, since people no longer live in houses. They are all moving into bungalows, or, which is the thing, into apartments*—and in a bun galow there is no room for art. We have futilo attempts at art for the bungalow, as we shall have pretended art for the Pullman car, for the motor, for the aeroplane. The great pictures of the past, having hung in houses for centuries, are passing into museums, not only because people are moving out of houses, but because new social ideas are destroying the great estates and making it impossible to keep valu able art works from one generation another. In England now three death daties will break up the greatest estate in the kingdom. You say you still have houses in America and millionaires with money enough to buy pictures? Ah, but think of what they buy! takes a lifetime to learn to recognize good picture, and how can a man who has spent his best years making a for tune expect to know a masterpiece when he sees it? When I was In Saris forty years ago your rich Americans were buying trash! seums, as the future of the dead In cemeteries, • • same It } HOW HISTORY IS DISTORTED Curious Liberties* Taken by Scholars With Events in Other Countries, Matter of "Policy. Cunfous liberties have been taken by the scholars of one country with the history of another, the distortion being, ef course, due in many instances to "policy." A striking example is found in a Russian text-book edited by a great Rugsian scholar, Dovaiski: "Louis XVI was a good and peace ful king. After a long and famous reign, in which he was most happy in his choice of minister of finance, he died quietly In Paris, beloved by all his people. His death was caused by a hemorrhage. "The successor of Louis XVI was his son, Louis XVH. th® brave, royal army, commanded by Gen. Napoleon Bonaparte, captured the largest part of the European con tinent for the French crown. But the faithless Napoleon showed tendencies toward misusing his power, and was suspected of harboring dishonest de signs against the legitimate ruler. With the help of his majesty the peror and autocrat of all the Russians, his plans were frustrated, and he was deprived of all his possessions, hon ors and rights to a pension. He was then exiled to the Island of St. Helena, where he died. as During his reign em Chinese Industry Revived. Chinese manufacturers of vegetable dye* have been induced to revive the manufacture of that product which had been almost wholly suspended. The higher prices being paid for these dyes at present is said to have made possible the organization of the busi ness on sounder economic principles. Large quantities of the dyes have al ready been shipped to the United Kingdom, where they are said to be giving satisfaction. There is prac tically no limit to the supply, pro vided the price paid is commensurate with the cost of production. In Japan, before the Introduction of mineral dyes, there were probably more dif ferent vegetable dyes used than In any other part of the world. Few of the dyes, however, were strictly fast, and the only thoroughly dependable black was the one made in the Kyoto district and used largely in dyeing the haori, the short, jacket-like gar ment worn by the Japanese men and women alike. The vegetable dyes were long ago supplanted by mineral ones, but existing circumstances are said by American Industries to be forcing a return to the older dyes. World's Greatest Liar. Perhaps the most voluble liar that ever lived was the Baron Munchausen ; that is, the Actionized baron. The real baron was à kindly soul who lived In Germany, and who in nowise de served the evil reputation that at tached to him through -the use of his name in a series of highly colored adventures that appeared In print in London in 1785. The authorship of the absurd tales Is a mystery. It Is generally believed that Rudolph Brich Raspe, a ques tionable character, wrote the stories first, but there is no absolute confirma tion. Following the original series a number of additional -adventures were written hy less skilled pens. On Eugenics. Prof. Herbert L. Flower said in an address on eugenics in Boston: "Youth's point of view is better than age's when It comes to questions of eugenics. "Here, for example, Is a dialogue to prove my claim: '*a beautiful girl said on a white blaeh to her fashionable mother: " * Yes * mother ' dear > 1 lik e Mr. Gobsa Golde, but Isn't he too old to b® con sidered eligible?'

The thief, brick in hand, awaits his* opportunity. When the policeman ou heat passes out of sight he slink» down the quiet avenue and takes up the a position in front of a jewelry store with an expensive and elaborate win was dow display. Reposing in the right the hand corner of the window is a tray of diamonds. This the thief decides to steal, bun We the for to for mu is Choosing a section of the window where the glass will make the least noise in falling, the thief draws back his right arm and the brick crashes through the window. With lightning agility he thrusts his hand through the broken pane, and then, starJed and utterly dismayed, as quickly with draws it. Had he not done so a bur glar curtain of steel, released from the top of the window at the instant of contact of brick with glass, would have severed his arms at the wrist, Popular Science Magazine states. In other words, he was thwarted in his attempt to steal by a burglar tain designed to drop and cover the window the instant the glass is bro ken. In making his superficial exami nation he had failed to detect the minute strands of wire stretched across the window, several of which were severed when the glass broken, setting into action a mecha nism which released the curtain. The wires, stretched tight and chored at their lower end to a rigid frame and at their upper end to a latch, are arranged close enough that an object thrown through th<* pane will sever one or more of them. When this occurs the latch is drawn downward, permitting the retaining rods to move in under forced pressure of their tension springs, which re leases a ratchet engaging with a shaft round which the curtain is wound. The curtain falls due to gravity. A simple safety appliance prevents the curtain from accidentally falling when the window is being cleaned. It is wound up on the shaft in a "set" position by means of a sprocket wheel. same 1 cur It :i was an SO is a AIR IS SENT THROUGH WATER Attachment for Electric Fan Increases the Cooling Capacity of That Apparatus Many Times. A clever and useful attachment for the electric fan, designed by a Los Angeles Inventor, according to Science Monthly, consists of a tin wheel which can be hooked on any electric fan and which will Increase its cooling capac ity many times. The spokes or propellers of this wheel are made of fine-mesh screen. The lower part of the wheel whirls in a tank which is filled with cold water. The electric fan causes the screen pro pellers to revolve and they dip into the little, tank, throwing up a small amount of water on the upward turn. The air is sent through the water and is cooled, purified and cleaned. Perfume, a disinfectant, or a medicat edlliquid may be used instead of water, Wood Block Floors. Creosoted wood blocks, already ex tensively used as paving material for eity streets, have been coming into use as flooring for the last four or five years according to the Forest serv ice. Its durability, noiselessness un der heavy traffic, and sanitary prop erties are its chief advantages for pav ing and also give it special value for making floors, especially for use where heavy trucking, the moving of heavy machinery, or other severe use makes the maintenance of floors a serious problem. It's rather high cost is Its chief disadvantage. Wood block is now widely used for flooring in factories,^warehouses, ma chine shops, foundries, various types of platforms, wharves, and docks, and for such miscellaneous purposes as ho tel kitchens, hospitals, laundries, and' slaughter houses. Possibly one of the oddest of these uses» is for the floors of wild animal cages and runways. Notwithstanding the recent increase In the use of wood block for these purposes, it Is believed that the growth of this industry will be even more rapid In the future. __ Plausible Enough. A traveling man was exasperated be cause the station in a certain south ern city was so far removed from the business section. As he mopped the perspiration from his forehead he grumbled ko a negro boy at his side: "Why did they put this station so far away from town? The negro was plainly puzzled for a minute, then said: "I dunno, lest *twas 'cause they wanted It Tongside der railroad." tf An Extra Number. "I saw a corking good show at the Skyhlgh roof garden last night. "Bah ! I saw that show night before last, and It was the worst ever. "Oh, but the show I saw wasn't on the program. Right in the middle of that fool trapeze act a woman came tearing down the aisle to where her husband was sitting with a bleached blonde, grabbed him by the ear and dragged him out. It was a scream. ■ There Was a Reason. Bridges—I wonder how Henpeck came to buy an auto. Do you know? Rivers—Yes.
