Glassless goggles for drivers of motor vehicles have thin steel plates in place of the usual lenses. There is nothing brittle to break, endangering the eyes and three ingeniouly arranged slits enable the wearer to see everything in front of him. + The world contains at least four mountains com posed of almost solid iron ore. One is in Mexico, one in the United States, another in India, and a fourth in Africa, just below the Soudan, and there have been reports of such a mountain in Siberia. + Reports to the effect that electric lights are detri mental to the eyesight are pronounced unfounded by an' electrical expert in the London Times. He says that the trouble arises from too direct exposure of the eye to the light, and that effect would be the same or worse with any other light. * A Museum of Cooking is to be established at Frankfort-on-the-Main. The plan is to be carried out by the International Association of Cooks, and its execution will cost $85,000. The museum will contain a historical section, in which, by the aid of models, the visitor will be given an idea of what a banquet was like in ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome. Other exhibits will show "creation of im mortal masters" and the most modern achieve ments of the culinary art. Here are some figures from a lumber camp up in Greenwood, Maine, which give an idea as to the appetite of husky woodsmen. There are thirty-five men in this crew, and the cook reports that he makes each day three hundred large biscuits, one hundred and fifty doughnuts, thirty-six pies, bakes six quarts of dry beans, with potatoes, vegetables, etc., in pro portion. A large beef creature is eaten every five days. With a total population of 43,659,121, the United Kingdom expended for liquors of all kinds dur ing 1906 the sum of $809,681,829, or an average of $18 per capita. Of this amount $495,187,316 was spent for beer, the quantity consumed being 33,891, 191 barrels; $253,201,812 for spirits, or 39,302,402 gallons ; $53,992,951 for wine, or 12,328,691 gallons, and $7,299,750 for other liquors, or 15,000,000 gallons. The per capita expenditure for spirits was $5.82, beer $11.35, wine $1.25 and all other liquors 12 cents. The consumption of beer per capita in England, Scot land and Ireland was 31.4, 9.5 and 21 gallons, re spectively; of spirits 0.8, 1.6 and 1 gallons; of wine 0.3, 0,3 and 0.1 gallon, and of other liquors 0.4 0.001 and 0.1 gallon. + Some time ago a typewriter firm, in advertising a typewriter with Arabic characters, made the state ment that the Arabic alphabet is used by more people than any other. A professor of Semetic lan guages was asked, "How big a lie is that?" He answered : "It is true." In a certain sense it is true; the total population of all countries whose in habitants use the Arabic alphabet (if they use any) is slightly larger than that of those who use the Latin alphabet and its slight variations. If, however, the question is how many people can actively use any alphabet, or system of writing, the Arabic stands low on the list. English now leads all other langu ages in the number of its readers. Three-fourths of the world's mail matter is addressed in English. More than half of the world's newspapers are printed in English, and, as they have a larger cir culation than those in other languages, probably three-fourths of the world's newspaper reading is done in English.
