It. seems strange that an unmarried woman should object seriously to be. (fig called an old maid. But one ot that blessed status in life took offense fct the term In Long island and caused the man who applied it to her to be baled into court, where he was stern* ty reprimanded by the magistrate and llrected to expunge the word from his rocabulary. But it Is not clear where in lay his offense. The term Is dig* Bdfled and complimentary. There may linger a feminine objection of the ad lective "old," but that could be elim inated by a very slight application ot philosophy. As for the noun, it is us* Bally supplemented by terms of praise. Unmarried men do net rush Into aoort when they ar& called bachelors, Br even old bachelors. The bachelor ancle Is normally a delight to nephews tnd nieces. The maiden aunt is be* lered and cherished In every household blessed by her presence. She is not in* frequently its most attractive mem* ber, even without the charms of youth. For that she has substituted a golden glev of placid beneficence. If there were In her early life a lore affair, It Is preserved in the lav ender leaves of her memory. She has DO occasion to brood, nor need melan efcoly dood her brow. The geo graphical distribution of old maids In the United States has happily grown less uneaven. But it is prob able that the number of old maids by their own choice is greater even than before the days of more money per capita and of readier transportation. Women has advanced in both educa tion and Independence. She can, when »he will, Bet higher standards for her choice. The suitor has more difficulty In proving his case, provided the fair one is endowed with discriminating ludgment. There Is less common need of marriage tor a home. I Such emancipation of femininity would have Inevitably an effect upon the census. It may have also its in* Ouence upon the development of char acter. Within somewhat elastic socio logical limits there cannot be too many old maids among the population. They have their peculiar mission to perform, and they usually meet its re* qulrements with sweetness and light Doubtless it was the intent of the Long Island boor that consituted his offense. He might better wish that this maid may grow older and older. Men and Animals. It la difficult to make out just why at this period of history there should be a sudden multiplication of plays In which the animal and vegetabla kingdoms take the chief parts. Tha genre is, of course, as old as Aesop, but the new century has touched it with a fresh tenderness, a new sense of the kinship of all life. Some day a German doctor of sociology will make research studies and decide what hidden influences are at work. In the middle of the nineteenth century the peasant and the plain man rosa Buddenly to the pinnacle of romantia attraction. Up to this time llteratura had concerned itself chiefly with ths aristocracy. If the peasant was in troduced, It was as a Jester, a money maker, a laughing interlude. But ths tragedies, difficulties, the shining gifts Df life seemed to belong only to thost of distinguished social position. Is it the influx of religious ideal from the east is it, perhaps, an efr tect of the renewed interest in tha mystic consciousness, "the Call of ths Whole," the sense of the unbroken links of life, that has sent the drams Itself to the life of the trees and iiv animate objects, of barnyard fowls and insects, for characters?—Han per's Weekly. Cutting Up Battleships. Formerly the cutting up of huga masses of steel like the armor belt on •old battleships was a Herculean job, costing much time, money and use of powerful machinery. To tear up an old battleship was the labor of months, re* quiring the careful cutting of no end ot .rivets and laborious chiseling and hammering. Such a job can now be done In a jiffy by a big blowpipe, in Which air and coal gas are burned Under pressure. Two fine nozzles close together do the job. Or, coal gas Is not handy, acetylene or gasoline vapor can be used. Of course, the blowpipe Is connected to the gas holder by' a strong rubber hose. With the gas lighted and the air turned on, the hardest steel runs off like a bar of melting wax. The cut 1b surpris ingly clean and smooth, the metal in no way being injured. The same sure way can be used in the cutting down ot big trees and big, thick timber, in stead of the slower and more ex pensive ax and saw. It can be used Instead of drills and chisels in drilling beleft and planing off rough Bteel.

New York.—After a courtship car ried on by wireless telegraph and com* municatlons transmitted over steam pipes connecting two apartments^ which resulted in an elopement and wedding two weeks ago, when Anna belle Rooney, nineteen yearB of age, 063 Washington avenue, the Bronx, be came Mrs. James Connelly, the yoqng people have returned to the home of the bride's parents and have been for given. Connelly, who is twenty-two years Df age, was graduated from the Clason Point Military academy a year ago. There he learned wireless telegraphy, and when he returned to the plaoe where he boarded on the floor above the apartment occupied by the Rooney Family, he rigged up a wireless station on the roof. Here he taught Annabelle how to send and take messages, and this knowledge was turned to Cupid's account when Connelly asked Anna belle's parents for her hand, only to be laughed at as a boy by her father. Cut off from any other communica tion with each other, the young loverq exchanged messages by wireless when Connelly went back to the military academy to pursue his special Marconi studies. When he returned to hla boarding place on the floor above the Rooney home, he and Annabelle rapped out the language of love with the shears on the steam pipes. Annabelle's father and mother were mystified by the strange rapplngs and when these continued in the summer after the steam had been turned off, they began to wonder whether the house was haunted. Plumbers were called in to solve the mystery, but they could find no explanation of the rapplngs. It might be ghosts, they al lowed, and they were sure it was not steam. The rapplngs ceased when Anna? belle eloped with Connelly two weeks ago. They were married at St John's Baptist church and immediately be took themselves to a furnished flat These facts were learned when they came to the Rooney home and received a blessing. FINALLY RETURNS TO FAMILY California Veteran, Long Mourned as Dead, Reveals Identity by Ask ing for Pension. Suisun, Cal.—After an absence ol thirty years, during which he war mourned lost, William Bullard has returned to California to join his fam ily. It was in 1881, Francisco, that he left his wife and four children and went on a sailing vessel. Nothing was heard of him until last winter, when Albert Bullard, his brother, near Denverton, in this county, received a letter from the pen sion office at Washington, D. C., ask ing for information regarding him. William had been a veteran of thfl civil war and had written from Eng. land to the pension office at Washing ton for his papers. It was through this letter that the long lost man was located and induced to return to Cali fornia. Believing that he was dead, his wife had applied for a widow'i pension. Bullard is the eldest son of Mrs, Elizabeth Bullard and the late John G. Bullard. He is now 67 years ol age, and from the young and activa man that he was when he left hl| family he has returned bent with yearj and wearing a gray beard and graj locks. He came to California in 186$ Joining his parents, brothers and sis ters near what is uow Birds Landing, During the twenty-nine years he wai absent he traveled all over the world, principally as a sailor, and visited many cities and countries. A few days ago he arrived in Sag Francisco, where his wife and daugb ters still reside. At present Bullar4 and his wife are visiting his brothel Albert near Denverton. He intend^ to remain with hiB rELEPhONE while In San family, and stateq that he would have returned long ago but owing to having met with one re verse after another he could not fa« the ordeal.

London.—What would not one give to have just a little of the privileges snjoyed by King George in the use »f the telephone? King George no ioubt thinks the telephone is the greatest boon under the sun. To him it must be a source of the greatest :omfort and enjoyment, as much as to the ordinary Londoner it is the most igonlztag nerve wrecker he finds in the course of a day's business. One does not like to say anything iisrespectful about King George, but at the same time the king may at times be the cause of profanity on the part of a disappointed subject. When the king requires to Bpeak over a trunk line he has the right to claim priority of service over all who may be waiting to use the Bame line. To let you understand what this means, usually a person requiring to use a trunk line, unless he Is very fortunate, has to wait at least half an bour before other callers who have requisitioned the line have finlBhed their business, for each caller Is given the line in turn. While three minutes is the time al lowed for a call, except when the king Is using it, his majesty has the priv ilege of talking without any time lim it As a matter of fact, however, the king, who had occasion recently to use the trunk lines rather frequently rarely or never exceeds the time limit. His majesty knows how a telephone should be used and is careful to ob serve rules laid down to expedite the traffic. His majesty speaks rather slowly and distinctly, but not loudly, so that his listener never has to ask him to repeat a word. It is the experience at the trunk exchange that the royal calls are very quiokly cleared. BIG GIRLS SCATTER KISSES Caress Promiscuously, Recklessly, But Seldom Lovingly, 8ays East ern 8chool Board. Washington.—Big girls kiss more than little ones. They kiss babies, teachers, each other—ahd sometimes poodles and good-looking boys. There Is no method or motive In the big girl's kiss—except sometimes, when a certain one is concerned. They kiss promiscuously, indiscrim inately, recklessly, but seldom loving ly. The big girl's kiss is like tha boarding house prunes, always pres ent, but seldom taken seriously. These facts are proven by statistics prepared here in connection with the organiza tion of an anti-osculatory campaign. At its next meeting the board ot education will take up the matter ol kissing and because of the possibili ties of breeding disease an effort is likely to be made by the school offi cials, not only to place a ban upon 11 In the schools, but also to discourage the habit in homes of the children and elsewhere. The statistics show tha small girls do not kiss so frequently as their elders. The club organized recently, known as the World's Health Organization, the motto of which is "kiss not," 1« gaining hundreds of recruits. School children becoming members of this club pledge themselves not to klsi any one or permit themselves to bs kissed. They wear buttons bearing the motto, "Kiss not" PANAMA IS MOSQUITO PROOF Canal Zone Is Now Healthier Than New York City, Declares Health Officer Pierce. New York.—Stating his belief tha| the Panama canal yrould be completed in 1918, a year and a half ahead o| the schedule-time, Dr. C. C. Pierce, a health offloer in the Canal zone, ai rived here the other day. "The greatest advance during tha six and a half years I've been there,4 he said, "was in the extermination o| mosquitoes. We have filled lnnumer able swamps, drained off standing wa. ter and even filled the .gutters from houstops.
