JAPAN MAKING WAR SHOES An agreement is reported to have Seen concluded between the Russian government and the Okura Gumi, Tok ta, for the supply of shoes from Nov smber next to the end of the war at .the rate of between 50,000 pairs and 100,000 pairs a month, with a special stipulation that the Russian govern ment will give two months' notice when the agreement is desired to be suspended or stopped. The maximum quantity can easily be supplied by the Tokio firm, according to a report em anating from a reliable quarter. There is a movement to take over Germany's lost trade in Persia. , its real popularity until about seven years ago, when the doctors discov ered it. They found it was one of the of the most digestible of foods and especially fine for insomnia. If you can't sleep at night try a half pint of peanuts. You will be surprised to find out how you will drowse off after you have chewed them welL Chicago eats half as many peanuts as New York and Brooklyn combined. Chi Chicago spends over ten thousand dol lars a day for peanuts, and eight and a half thousand of it goes as profit to the push-cart man and the very small stores. HE KNOWS ALL ABOUT PEANUTS In New York there is a man that -talks eats, sleeps and dreams pea outs. The grocery trade says that he knows more about peanuts than any ather living American. He has seen the industry grow through half a cen tury, and he is never so happy as when he can find a listener. "Okla homa is becoming the peanut state," he said. "Oklahoma with Texas a -close Becond. You wouldn't believe 'that, would you? No-o that isn't ex actly true! Virginia really contin ues in the lead. Virginia is the or iginal peanut state. Oklahoma and Texas have been coming up tremend ously. "Peanuts never amounted to much in this country until the civil var. During the war the Northern (Soldiers who were campaigning in 'Virginia got to eating them and -found the dainty they had never heard of before very stomach-filling and di gestible.

But the peanut, never got ELECTRICAL FOG DISPELLER Solution of the problem of dissipat ing heavy fogs lying over rivers, har bors and in the paths of ocean liners is believed to be nearer than ever be fore by scientists of national repute, who are working on a giant electric impossible, will be used in the experi tion. The largest electrical transformer ever built, capable of transforming a million volts, heretofore considered impissible, will be used in the experi ment. Scientists of the bureau of mines and "the Smithsonian Institute believe this high power will create an elec trical disturbance accompanied by the thunder and will cause fog to rise from the surface of the water. Dr. P. G. Cottrell of the United States Bureau of Mines, is in charge of the experiment, and is installing the transformer at the exposition. ABOUT MACHINE GUNS Small practice can lead to great per fection In the art of laziness. Give some men a pointer and they'll kick because it Isn't a setter. If you can't talk of anything but your troubles, why talk? Against machine-guns the rifleman is helpless, a miliary expert remarked; and he was right. Actual tests of machine-guns have shown them to be superior to picked marksmen. At a test in this counrty some time ago, I forty-two first class shots were pitted against one Maxim, each side firing for one minute at a target represent ing infantry in line, at a distance which was unknown, but which was actually 1,000 yards. These were the results: forty-two men, 408 rounds, 62 hits; machine-gun, 228 rounds, 60 hits: although the Maxim spent some lime in getting the range. Machine-guns are really rifles with a mechanical feed, which supplies them rapidly with cartridges. In all modern patterns they are automatic in action. The gas produced by the ex plosion or shock of recoil opens the breech, ejects the spent cartridge, loads the rifle, closes the breech, and fires the charge. These complicated operations are carried out with extra ordinary speed. To give an example. The Maxim can fire at lea"st 450 rounds a minute, or more than seven shots per second, and if in exceptionally good oreder and cleverly operated can discharge 600 rounds a minute. In the Britibh Army at the begin ning of the war the number of machine-guns was two to each battalion or cavalry regiment In the German army there was an extraordinary de velopement of the machine-gun sec tions shortly before the war. Indeed, the enemy is Ftated to have taken the field with 50,000 of these weapons, so that each German battalion must have had ten, if not more, which gave them an enormous advantage above the Al lies at the outset.

It is understood that the management of the exhibit is go ing to donate some choice Michigan apples as a souvenir to visitors. Special Electrical Illumination Featuring the electrical celebration i which i3 made in connection with the National Prosperity Celebration, an unusually large and beautiful electric al display will be made by the elec trical concerns who have reserved one section of the Exposition for co-operative exhibit. This exhibit will not only be pleasing from the standpoint of beauty, but will be interesting and educational.
