THE VIOLET COLOR OF OLD
GLASS.
A Curicus Chsnge That Occur» Aftar
the Pasiags of Time.
In many u!d bulldlnga one sees win- |
dow panes wblrh have turned pale j
amethyst color Manganese la added !
to the siaaa to neutralize the green
color which la caused by th ; presence
of ferrous Iron, and. In the course of
time, this manganese changes from
Its colorless state, and, turning vio'et, I
gives its hue to the old glass. It has j
been observed that radium will cause
this change in glass when Its rays are
allowed to act for only a short time. !
The suggestion has been made that ;
the turning of glass under ordinär/
circumstances Is due to the action of |
the minute quantities of radioactive 1
minerals which are present in many
localities
Sir William Crookes has been mak
ing a study of these phenomena and -
concludes thit the change In glass is *
not due to radium. The sun's rays
possess all the pjwers of radium rays
only In a vastly smaller degree. He
believes that the long-continued ac
tion of the sunlight In the caur.3 of '
the change noticed In the color of
glass. It was shown some year, ago
that some ,,f the son's ravs are pro !
vented from reaching the earth by
the blanket of the earth's atmosphere,
and those rays which are taken away
are the one« most active in effecting
such changes as the one in glass. A i
striking confirmation of this is af- I
forded by tho fact that the moat rapid j
coloring has been observed at high
elevations in tropical region«. Her«
the layer of the atmosphere is thinner
and the sun's rays more powerful.
Some especially deeply colored sped- j
mois of glass have been found In

What Corn Accomplishes.
Corn-fed pork furnishes our tables
1 with millions of hams and sausages,
I besides bacon and lard. Corn pro- ,
duces the host of poultry and eggs,
of which shine we. as a nation, con
sume more (when measured by dol
lars) than wo <lo of wheat. Of corn
starch we us>* about $7.000,000 per
year, to say nothing of tho enormous
consumption of glue, combs and oth
er products made from the horns,
hoofs and hair of those corn-fed
animals. To all these we must add a
j product of corn-oil (maximum $16.000
dally) largely used In paints; and
the by products of corn-oil, starch,
glucose, whiskey and alcohol, dried
and sold in cakes, for animal ford,
amounting to irillhins cf dollars per
year. Nor is that all that corn accom
plishes. Besides giving food and
c.othing in the form of animal and
vegetable products, as indicated, it
gives life and strength to millions of
horses, mules and oven that till our
fields and haul our multitude of farm
products to the thousands of country
markets, from Maine to California,
and from the Dakotas to Florida and
Texas.—Harper s Weekly.

Origin of Dog Days.
According to the generally accepted
doctrine, the dog days begin on July
3 and end on August 11, but there
have been disputes as to every pos
sible point about them. It wag unl
versally agreed that they were con
nec ted with the Deg Star, but which
j :>n«? Tftie real Do* Star, Sirius—or
. i' rocT on. the Utile Dog? Then there
, * vre * disagreem- nta a» to the parti

rttUr astronomical performance of
the star that fixed the dog days: as to.
their number, which varied in dl3< r
ent estimates between 30 and 34: ar.J
whether they were to be reckoned be

; fere, after or around tbe star's per
la formancea. The 44» settled on pro

belief grew up that In these - ays

Tlle original belief was that the stcr

STRONCER THAN MEAT.
A *Vw«l»» f , Itpl.l.« nt Grapiegntl.
A gentleman who has acquired a Ju
dicial turn of mind from ezperlence on
the bench out In the Suntlowor State,
write* a carefully considered opinion
■ s to (he value of (irapc-Xuts as food.
He says:
"Tor the pn*t tlTe year» Grape-Nut»
baa been a prominent feature In our
bill of fare.
"The crisp food with the delicious,
nutty flavor has become an indispensa
ble necessity in my family'» everyday
life.
"It has proved to be moat healthful
and beneficial, and has enabled us to
practically abolish pastry and plea
from our table, for the children prefer
Grape-Nnta and do not crave rich and
unwholesome food.
"Grape-Nuts beeps ua all in perfect
physical condition—its a iireveutive of
disease It Is beyond value. I have been
particularly Impressed by the beneficial
effects of Grape-Nuts when um-d by
ladies who are troubled with fnco
blemishes, skin eruptions, etc. It
clears up the complexion wonderfully.
"As to Its nutritive qualities, my ex
Frience is that one small di*h of Grape
Nuts is superior to a pound of meat
for breakfast, which Is an Important
consideration for any one. It satisfies
the appetite ami strengthens the pow
er of resisting fatigue, while its use In*
volvir none of the disagreeable couse
queures that sometimes follow a meat
breakfast." Name given by Toitum
