TAKE INVENTION FOR GRANTED
Pew People 8eem to Realize Imnor. tanes at VJnrlr rinn u.. i. - ' w I 1 C 1 1 U I Brilliant Ideas. Inventors sometimes have boon looked unon ns mfhri enniii,..i..,.i i people who spcml most of their time thinking up Impractical ways to do unnecessary things, lint, according to Dr. Miller Ileese Hutchinson, illstln , guished Inventor ami former adviser of Thomns A. Udlson, few people real ize the Importance of invention tu our modern dally life. "Invention," says Doctor llutehln Mn, "Is perhaps the most Impoitant constructive force in our economic life. Wo take It for granted and few people npprcclnte Its dally application, lint Inventions shndow our every step from the cradle to the grnvo. Our food is planted nnd harvested with Invented machinery; It Is distributed through out the world on Invented freight ears and motortrucks; it Is cooked In In vented stoves and ovens and some times eaten with Invented teeth. We come and go from our work on Invent ed means of transportation if we walk It is on invented shoes and socks. All of our daily activities In business nnd Industry are expedited and made 'possible by Inventions. Our leisure moments are soothed by music front Invented musicnt instruments or brightened by Invented motion pie tures, and when we die we are placed In an Invented ensket, carried away in on Invented hearse and lowered Into the grave by means of an Invented lowering device."

The visit to America of Marshal Koch, Incidentally lends interest to his native city, Turbos, In the south o France. This town which Is des tined J$o be a shrine of Trance henee forth.jnlready has contributed in other ways to the military prowess of that country, according to a bulletin from the Washington headquarters of the National Geographic society. "Honored by n conspicuous statue nnd by the name of one of Its principal strectsIs Dominique Jean Larrcy, who introduced the 'flying Held hospitals,1 'ydopted nnd developed by Napoleon, tlie genesis of the modern ambulance. More recently It has been a center for thebreedlng of tlu; famous Pyre nenn hqnses, an Anglo-Arabian breed, valued primarily for their light cavalry use. It also has an Important arsenal." ' ' Glass Pavements a Failure. Some years ago a plant was estab lished near Lyons, Krance, for the . .manufacture of paving glass. Numer ous descriptions of the new paving mnterinl,' were published, and a bril liant future was predicted for It. The city authorities of Lyons permitted the manufacturer to lay a specimen sec tion of glnss pavement In the Place do la Itepubllque, a center for heavy traffic. The glass bricks failed to stand the test oMvenr. The edges of them were soon broken and splintered, and many of the blocks split In two, so that In a short, time It became necessary to remove 'the glnss and substitute stone or wood. The city officials agreed that glass pavement can lie ucd un der favorable circumstances for side walks, but not for the middle of streets. Vanishing Vicunas. The llama and alpaca are extensive ly domesticated In South America. A relative of theirs, the vicuna, smaller In size, Is a wild nnlmnl, native to the high plateau of the Andes. The vicuna has been hunted almost to tho point of extermination by the Indians, nnd before long It Is likely to become nil extinct species. Its linn silky wool, of n tnwny colorf Is woven Into very attractive ponchos, anil rugs made of Its skin are much sought as bed coverings.

I ii.viifciu, mm one uay in exercise. ami you win he able to put seven days' work Into the other live." That Is the creed of Sir Harold Stiles, reglus professor of clinical surgery of the University of Kdlti burgh ami representative of the Itoyal College of Surgeons to the American College of Surgeons, which recently met in annual convention lu Philadel phia. Sir Harold learned of tho statement made by Sir .lames Cnntlie, u London surgeon, that "old age Is just a pose. We only begin to live at forty-five. Down with the gospel of folded hands." Sir .lames Is seventy years old. Vor fifteen minutes every morning he dances the Highland fling and the sailor's hornpipe. As a result, a passion of exercise has taken hold of the older heads of London, and Sir James is leading groups In calisthenics lu all quarters of the city. Sir James Cantlle's campaign "for physical Jerks for young men of more than Jilt and young women say more than 40" brought smiles of approval from Sir Harold Stiles. "Kxerclse why It's the greatest thing In the world. "You Americans are too fat. The ordinary American as I have seen him Is far more robust than the nvcrage i:riglMimun, not because you exercise less but because you eat more." Sir llnrold Is an earnest champion of golf. "If I did not exercise one day out of the week, I could not get along tho rest of the time," he said. Americans are waking up to the pos sibilities of exercise, Sir Harold be lieves, lie has visited this country three times. Kuch time be has found conditions permitting exercise Im proved more for the "middle-aged tired business man." Philadelphia Public Ledger. BOTH SINGED AND "TRIMMED" Barber Shop Patron Came to the Con elusion That He Had Made a Bad Bargain. "Do any of you fellows hero know how to scorch hair?" Inquired a man when he entered a barber shop. "Yes, we singe hair," replied the barber after a moment's hesitation. ''What tin you charge for scorch VmV" the prospective patron usked. "Twenty-live cents," was the bar ber's reply. "Would It be any cheaper If I fur nished my own scorchers''" the man inquired, referring to the small wax tapeis, which cost about a penny each. "Well, you can go ahead and scorch mine any way," said tlie patron, re moving his coat. "The reason I asked," lie explained, "was that I got my hair scorched for the first time about two months ago In a barber shop and the barber told me that only a few shops In the coun try were prepared to do that kind of work. P.efore I left I n?ked him If he would sell nn; a couple of scorchers and he said that under tho circum stances he would, but that he would have to-have 125 cents apiece for them. I guess that wasn't such n bargain though. You go abend and use these, anyway," the man told the barber, us he laid two tapers on the chnlr. Alluring Offer to Workmen. In telling of Kunqie's monetary woes James Hryce, former ambassa dor from Great llritnln to the United States, recounted recently a story which was told him by a friend who visited ltula. "It takes a pile of ruble notes that high," said Viscount Pryce, extending Ids hand several feet above the table, "to purchase a crust of bread there. The workmen em ployed to print off new ruble notes threatened to strike. They were pro pitiated by an offer on the part of tho soviet government that, when they bad worked an allotted number of hours nt making ruble notes fbr the govern ment, they might work as much longer as they liked at printing off ruble notes for themselves."

GEMS TO BE SEEN IN SKY Many Really Beautiful Things May Be Observed With the Aid of an Opera Glass. If you use nn opera glass on dark nights you can make the stars flash out like gorgeous gems, says Loudon Answers. All that need be done Is to shake tho glass ever so little, either sideways or up and down. You will then find the line of sight made by the star's Image will resemblo a rich respIendenL.string of diamonds, rubles and emeraltK; nor will the lovely turquoise be alisent. P.y making the opera glass describe a tiny circle, there will appenr a neck lace of glittering gems so brilliant us to cause one to wonder how a single star could possibly produce such an exquisite effect.

It was a cellar that once really existed In the town of Kazan, and Gorki himself worked there as n linker's apprentice. It is an Interest lng fact that opposite the baker's was u shoemaker's shop and In It, While Gorki was learning to bake bread, the young Chaliapin was learn ing to uiake shoes. Though the future singer must often have eaten brend of the future writer's baking the two did not '.lien become acquainted. But both applied for a vacancy In the churns of a local theatre, and It was Gorki who was accepted, f'hallapln's voice not having then developed. Later Chaliapin found use for his great physical strength as one of the "bur Inks" or "human horses" who pull the biMts on the Volga. Manchester Guardian, Fireproof Gas Tanks.
