MAN 8INQS BUT LÏTTLÉ Th« spirit of music prompts maa to whistle and sing In odd plsces. It's a cartoon fallacy that a man huma "Rockaby Baby" when walking the floor with the first-born. But who has not listened outside a bathroom door und heard amidst the splashes from the tub the voice of a man who never dures sing in front of hia family, raised in the luscious phrases of some ballad mellowed in the acoustics of the tiled room? Listen to the baiting warbllugs of the mun between swipes of bit razor. lie also sings. The spring time brings the merry bum of the lawn mower. But like the piccolo's shrill note above the rutnbie of the kettle drums in the orchestra, one hours tlie whistling of the man at the handle. What do they sing? Tell me h man's tuvorite song and I'll tell you when he was wed, says the Toledo Iliade. The man in the tub. the mun with the razor, and the man behind I tie mower all ure humming the pop ular ballads of their courting days. I-or these songs, the ones they hummed meaningly anil feelingly over ibe piano ou Sunday nights after the girl's parents laid retired, were the lust songs they ever learned. Heroism seldom receives an ade quate reward, although If one desired to gro.»»philosophical uhout it one might tritely ufilrm that heroism Is its own reward, says the Christian Sci ence Monitor. But the case with which this paragraph Is concerned was one iti which the real reward was given. Miss It 11 In Conrad of Pittsburgh had such a keen sense of hearing that she detected ii break ill the rail when a fast passenger train was passing over it. She reported the mutier, the ruil was fixed—probubly forestalling a wreck— und tile railroad began to wonder about a reward. Would they give her gold? Would they give her diamonds? The mind of u genius solved tlie urobleiu, and they guve her —a new spring bat. The word snob Is not, as muny be lieve, mere slang, but it is of respec table, yes, even of distinguished ori gin, for it is tlie abbreviation of two Lutiu wuids, slue noldlitute, meaning without nobility. This term was once used to lndicute English university studeuts who were not of the nobil ity. The pretensions of these men brought tlie word into ill favor, for they aped tile manner and clothing of the nobs. There use nobs and snobs iu our schools and In society today, not by accident of birth, but because some persons recognize true standards of gentility uud others do not. The New fork Globe lias discovered a rich mun who wunts to put his wealth to use, but isn't sure of the best way. He has usked bis readers for suggestions. They are many and various. They Include homes for the uged, endowed hospital beds for tlie poor, bousing at cost, scientific re search, technical education, health clinics, educational films and scores of other projects of beuevulence or up lift. Nobody has yet suggested tlie liest use of all, remurks tlie Washing ton Times, which Is for the rich mun to put Ids money to work making Jobs for the people who cun do their own upilftiug best when they get earned Incomes. News that a salvage syndicate has started work In an English harbor where one of the gulleons of the Span ish Armada lies beneath 30 feet of sand. Is rather thrilling. It Is not so much the Ingots of gold that may be lilddeu in the old vessel that stirs tlie imagination, but the mere idea of huv ing one of these historic warriors of the sea brought again to light. Who knows but that other vessels might lie iu wuters where they may he found? The galley of Ulysses, for instance, or part of Antony's fleet at Actiutn. Scientists who announce that they have succeeded In transmuting tung sten Into helium have opened up vust realms of research. The event Is hope ful. If the old problem of transmuta tion of metals has at last been solved some of tlie later questions which have been burning society will no doubt be answerd. Biologists have discovered that electrical tests will tell whether a plant Is alive or dead aud, If still alive, bow long it will live. Testa In the past proved that the milkman very often is ■ fatal shock to s pet lawn. A stat'sOclan has calculated that married men are more reliable than single men, in the rutlo of six to oue. Nowadays a married man needs to be about six times as reJInble to meusure up to bis Increased responsibilities. Those latest Jumps In the price of Liberty bonds are reminding a whole lot of people that it would have been better to hold on. In this weather a person at least knows why he Is paying good mouey for coal. Now it appears that they do not •van wear "Teddy bears" any more.
