The coal strike showed us what a narrow margin the country gees on, even in a non perishable necessity which can be stored. Swift & Company is engaged in the business of fighting hunger. From coast to coast, from the Great Lakes to the Gulf, the lines of defense are drawn—packing plants at strategic points; branch houses in four hundred towns and cities; hundreds of car routes; thousands of refrigerator cars; tens of thousands of loyal men and women expert in their work. Day by day, hour by hour ceaselessly, this fight, your fight, goes on. Yet so smoothly, surely and victoriously that you, unaware how close hunger always is, are as certain each night of tomorrow's meat as you are of tomorrow's sun. And so economically is this done that the cost to you for this service is less than three cents a pound of meat sold. The profits shared in by more than 30,000 shareholders whose money mak-s the victory possible is only a fraction of a cent a pound on all products. If hunger did not make it necessary for us to fight this fig t in the best possible way for all concerned, the competition of hundreds of other packers, large and small, would compel us.

The threads of the garden spider are fixed by astronomers In their tele scopes for the purpose, of giving fine lines to the field of view, by which the relative positions of stars may be accurately measured. For a century astronomers desired to make use of such lines of the great* est possible fineness, and procured at first silver wire drawn out to the ex treme limit of tenuity attainable with that metal. (1-S00th of an Inch thick), and threads of the silkworm's cocoon, which are split into two component threads, each only l-200th of an Inch thick. But in 1820 an English instrument-maker named Throughton Introduced the spider's line. This can be readily ob tained three or four times smaller than the silkworm's thread, and has also advantages In Its strength and freedom from twist. In order to obtain the thread the spider is carefully fixed on a minia ture "rack," and the thread, which at the moment of issue from the body is a viscid llQuld, is made to adhere to a winder, by turning which the desired length of firm but elastic thread can be procured. They also tried hairs Victory of Courage. The man or woman who ventures much may fall often, but he will achieve in proportion to those very failures because he will use each one as a stepping stone to higher effort. But the man or woman who quib bles, reconsiders, hesitates and weighs every gain against a greater loss is a predestined failure, because his very attittfde should be avoided. He who falls with his face forward In the battle Is not a failure, but a hero. Failure lies In turning the back on the foe, to retreat before the en emy. When we speak of success we should not, think in terms of money or position or fame, but of moral courage, high endeavor, honorable achievement. And when these are translated Into active service the world will become that Utopia of which so much has been written and sung.—Milwaukee Sentinel. Advice to Teacher«. Let your scholar be never afraid to ask you any doubt, but use dis creetly the best allurements you can to encourage them to the same; lest his overmuch fearing of you drive him to seek some mlsorderly shift ; as to seek to be helped by some other book, or to be prompted by some other scholar; and so go about to beguile you much, and himself more. With this good way of understand ing the matter, plain construing, dili gent parsing, daily translating, cheer ful admonishing, and heedful amend ing of faults, never leaving behind just praise for well doing, I would I have the scholar brought up withal, j till he had read and translated over | the first book of Epistles chosen out by Sturmius, with a good piece of | a comedy of Terrence also.—From f "The Schoolmaster," by Roger Aa- J cham. Height of Sea Waves. The records of average height In feet observed at sea are approximate ly equal to half the velocity of the wind in statute miles per hour. For those occasions on which the wind has had as full opportunity as It ever en joys of doing Its work, direct propor tionality still holds good, but the con stant is higher. -It has been found that seven-tenths best satisfies the available observations between a strong breeze and a whole gale. The same simple proportion, however, does not hold when dealing with the heights corresponding to the gentlest breezes. The highest waves finally formed are those traveling at a velocity which Is equal, within the error of observation to that of the wind.—Brooklyn Eagle -o WILL YOU HELP? j Newspaper reporters find it increas ingly difficult to run down the news happenings of a community. The com ings and goings of people are not so easy to get as they once were. Once the reporter haunted the railway sta tion and picked up much of his new matter there. But the station no long er yields up the personal mention i once did. More people travel by aut< j than by train and so personal event the gonigs and comings, escape th eyes of the news gatherer.

THE STYLE SHOP ers on the beach saw the little fishing boats come safely into -port one by one, but Luke's was not among them and later his lifeless body was cast upon the coast. That night, alone with her brother, Faith confessed that Luke was her lover—that they were to have been married in the Spring and that she would soon be a mother. The fury of the stern man was terrible and his vengeance paralyzing. , "From now on," he cried, "you shall be an outcast from your kind, I you shall dive outside the world, see ing no one and being seen by none." I True to his word he took the brok en-hearted girl to a lonely lighthouse in the Carribbean Sea — 'Ception Shoals. Here little Eve was born, a pledge to the grieving, mother of | Luke's love. Her happiness was short however, for Coffin denounced the child to he Ae result of a con somate sin and, vowed that she should ft ' - - V drove the young mother to suicide and little Eve was left alone with the embittered man. Here she grew into beautiful girl hood—a chihfeof nature and moods—a daughter of the mists and solitudes, her only friends the wheeling gulls, her music the swell of the open sea. Her uncle's word is kept—she never sees any human being but Coffin. Toward dusk one evening a heavy fog rolls in from the sea—blotting out all objects and dimming the beams from the light in the tower. Eve, dressed in her habitùal cost ume—a ragged shirt and a stilly more ragged pair of trousers, makes, her way to the beach. Through the drift ing fog she sees a vessel stranded on 'the treacherous shoals of 'Ception light. It is the yacht "Driftwood." A nmnll boat puts out for the shore and soon a young man is s t a n d in g on the beach beside her. The sight of the fwierd little figure brings a smile to the young man's lips, but to her be is revelation—a heroic figure from a -• • ms m out of the fog. The young man, whose name is Philip Blake, explains to Eve's uncle that the widow of his first mate is on the yacht and is expecting the birth of a child. He asks permission to bring her to the lighthouse but is sternly refused. Braving the wrath of her uncle Eve brings the party ashore. The baby is born and a strong tie of friendship develops between the young mother and the girl—the latter for the first time in her life realizing that she also is a woman. This knowledge makes her feel with shame that grotesque ness of her boy's costume and she re members that there are some old clothes belonging to her mother in the attic. These she puts on and the trans formation is such> that philip is struck with amazement at the beauty of the Kiri. His love springs into being and he finds that it is returned by Eve. Job Coffin vows to keep them apart. When the Driftwood sails, Philip promises Eve that he will return soon and marry her. As the days go by and Philip does not return Job tells Eve that Philip is dead. Months later when he sees the Driftwood drop anchor off the is land, he hastens to hide Eve. When Philip asks for her Job tells him that she is dead« Broken-hearted Philip returns to the yacht and is about to sail when he sees two figuers struggling in the light tower. Hurriedly going ashoi'e he finds Eve in the embrace of Jim Smoot, the bullying mate of the yacht. Knocking the man down he rescues Eve and goes to demand an explana tion from Job Coffin. The excit ment has been too much for the old man and they find him dead at the foot of the stairs. With nothing to hinder them Philip and Eve leave the island, which has been so long a prison for the girl, and soon after a quiet wedding takes place in the little church in the vil läge.
