Are You Planning
to Remodel?
If You Are—a greater saving may be realized and
more satisfactory results obtained by having the work
done now, rather than waiting until spring season, with
its usual building rush and scarcity of workmen—work
men who really are competent.
In addition to the beautiful difference in appearance
and the continuous source of delight derived from well
kept and reparied buildings, you will be surprised at the
saving of time, money and efforts.
A man will gladly be sent to measure your job—
quoting you upon the material required.

Operated Without the Aid of

Can you Imagine a gun which make«
neither noise uor smoke, uses no ex
plosive, Is worked entlt'dy by a petrol
engine, and cuti shoot 1K) rounds a
minute at runges up to 2,t*Oo yards?
Such a weapon is being tested by the
British military authorities. It works
on the principle of centrifugal force—
the same force that flings mud onto
your buck when you are cycling on n
wet day, or causes gl.uit fly wheels
In factories to hurst suddenly into
hundreds of fragments. Anything
that Is placed upon a revolving wheel
Is curried to Its edge und then hurled
The new gun consists of a metal
basin In which are placed u quantity
of round steel bullets. As the buslu Is
whirled at enormous speed hy a petrol
motor the bullets ure allowed to es
cape from an opening In the disk.
Shutters are provided which prevent
the bullets from being tin own out ex
cept at one polut.
One feature of the gun I« that It can
lie regulated to meet the requirements
of the occasion. Spin the muguzlue
rapidly und Its missiles will crash
through uu ouken plunk u mile uway.
But let It revolve at u low speed and
it will pour out u stream of bullets
which stun, hut do not kill, at oven
such a short range os 20 yards.

Coupled with the announceitmit of
the death of Dr. Jacques Bertillon In
Burls was the erroneous statement
that he wo« the Inventor of the "Ber
tillon system for finger-printing,*' In
collaboration with his elder brother.
The facts are that the syatem was In
vented by his younger brother, anil
that It had nothing whatever to do
with finger-prlntlug. which was Intro

and It was. moreover, found that
changes In even adult bodies made the
system far from Infallible. For these
reasons the system, though still em

The patron Is never nt n loss to know
how to address his servitor, or servi

table Is slipped a neatly lettered card
giving the name of the vvultrcss as

A Contradiction.
President Ethel Enders Ellison of
the Housewives' league, said In an
address in Denver:
"Oh, these egg profiteers ! Drat

"They tell me the Chicago Egg ex

than all the hens of America could
lay lu a year. And every time an egg
Is sold Its price, of course, goes up a
little, while Its reul value goes down.

Saving Our Gaa.
It Is reckoned by the bureau of
mines that 5 u,<njo, 000 gullons of gaso
line were recovered at refineries lu
1921 from uncondeused still vapors.
Such an economy has a strong appeal
for motorists. Inasmuch as It has a
bearing upon the price of the Indis
pensable liquid fuel. But It is fur
ther estimated that If a like system
were adopted by all refineries more
than twice as much In addltlou might
be saved, say 120,(M>,UU0 gallons alto
