Who Awards Nobel Prizes? The Nobel prize-winners are select ed by the Swedish academy and the Norwegian storthing, or parliament, four by the former and one by the latter. Nationality has nothing to do with the choice. During the short time that the prizes have been award ed the principal countries of Europe, as well as the United States, have been recognized by the selectors. The Peace prlse is the one awarded by the Nor wegian storthlng. Those whose duty it is to award these prises of world-wide tame are naturally always on the look out for works of merit in the various departments. But, no doubt, they have many claims for investigation from those who feel that their work ee titles them to some consideration. Sight of Fishes. To the fish the surface of the wa ter, seen from below, presents a ely cuear window surrounded by mirrors, according to Edward Ringwood Hewitt, author of "Secrets of the Salmon-" It seems that a fish can see out into the air only through a limited aper tore; everywhere else the surface re flects the contents of the stream, or (it it be a shallow one) the bottom. This is because the light rays pass ing from water to air are bent, and when the angle of the light ray from the fish's eye with the vertical bo comes great mongh, it la bent back ward so that it does not enter the air at all, but is directed downward to ward the hottom.

SCHUMACHER'S 10S ROYAL aT, Ner Cold 1T w.. aU s e .m CLOTHES I * I 5 By HAZEL R. LANGDALE I hl----------------------i=a i, 1923. by McClure Newspaper Saydieate. Henry let the magazine he had beep reading slip to the floor as he reached for his tobacco to fill his pipe. Then he glanced at the clock and put his pouch back In his Iuocket, unopened. Stretching his arms above his head, he yawned. "Gosh, Jenny, guess I'll turn in. I've had sort of a hard day at the shop, and it's later than I thought. You mind?" His wife. over her basket of mend ing, shook an lndifferent head. "Night, Henry. Don't forget to wind the clock and set the alarm. Ill finish here and then read a spell to rest me." Silence settled on the Crampton household-a salience that lasted long after Jenny had placed a skillful patch on a worn tablecloth, had darned sev eral pairs of Henry's sacke, and had read her spell in Henry's discarded magazine. For as she picked up the book where It lay open on the floor beside her husband's chair, a glaritllg title caught her eye: "Have you kept your husband's love?" Powerfully as a spoken accusation. It rivetted and chal lenged her attention, and she read the Indictment which followed with a breathless fascination. Then, when she had finished the article she laid It down with a deeply indrawn sigh. Why, that writer had drawn Henry and her! For wasn't Henry getting un romantically on in years, and wasn't she middle-aged and run-down-at-heel and unattractive? And hadn't Henry long ago gotten over showing any of those intimate little signs of affection which women prize? The occasional , tender word-the kiss at the door be fore going away in the morning-the comradely peat on the shoulder now and agaln? And there was as warning tacked on at the end of the article. "Be care ful," It read, "that your husband. Ina a sort of second youth, doesn't look for his happiness elsewhere. If be shows signs of sprucing up himself, unmindful of your appearance, be ware !" Absent-mlndedly she followed tn Henry's footsteps, making sure that doors were locked and bolted. Then she climbed the stair and crept Into bed, only to lie there for many waketful, planning hours. The next day she experienced a sharp and sudden pang when Henry left the house without even saylng good-by. Late that afternoon, bundle-laden, weary, yet withal exhilarated. Jenny returned from the city. Her feet dragged a bit, but in her eyes was the light of-was it battle or merely fem Inlne anticipation? Shut In her bed room, she unwrapped her purchases and spread them upon the bed. Then she did various things to her hair, dabbed a bit of powder on her nose, put a polish on fnlger nails that had been recently manicured, and, finally, she arrayed herself from hbead to foot in attire that was brand new, rather expensive, and extremely pto-date. As she walted for her husband oa the little porch the mnlauts passed Jowly. One suburban car after an other stopped at the corner and dis gorged its passengers. Still no Henry. Arrived an nl-between rush-hour ear, which let out only two women and a man in gray. Jenny bit her tip nervously. This was even later thai usual. Why-wrby-that man in grey was stopping at the gate. He bad swung it open-was coming up the path Why, it wa--Henry I Yes, it was Henry to a new gray sult, new hat, new shoes. And evea a new lift to his walk, a new sat to his aahulders. Jaunty, almost.

There continues the discovery of asteroids or minor planets, especially with the aid afforded by celestial pho tography. Among a vast multitude of stars, crowding a photographic plate one, perhaps, will be seen to have drawn a short thin line on the plate during its hours of continuous expos ure. The astronomer knows at once that it is either an asteroid or a comet. Subsequent observations soon decide the point. Only the more in teresting ones are afterward ob served with attention, but once dis covered they cannot be ignored, and the rapid growth of the flock becomes e an embarrassment. Eros, which at times approaches the earth nearer than any other regular members of the solar system, except the moon, and hi asteroid No. 585, which at aphelion is more distant than Jupiter, as far as h their orbits are sroncerned, remain the most Interesting members of the entire group and are kept under con stant observation whenever circum stances permit.-New York Herald. Sun Still a Mystery. The sun is a hotter place than the old orthodox hereafter. Its tempera ture is about 6,600 degrees centigrade. In breadth Old Sol is 865,000 miles across. Compared with him, our earth Ii is like a kernel of popcorn in the cen ter of a dinner plate. But although di Old Sol regulates our life, growth and health from a distance of 92,930,000 miles, to be exact, science as yet knows little about him, observes Capper'a Weekly. People realize in their sub conscious minds that the sun is close ly related to the mystery of life, which is one reason they are forever talking about the weather that is regulated by the sun as completely as a furnace regulates the temperature of a house in winter. But the big day star Is al most as much of a mystery to us as he was to the ancients. Anti-Fat Campaign In 1863. The fattest man of all history is a title that has rested undisputed on Daniel Lambert. who died in his fortieth year at Stamford, Eng, in 1808. Mr. Lambert is said to have weighed 739 pounds, almost 200 pounds more than his closest competitor, Mr. Bright, who lived in Essex In the previous century. Bright, however, was scarcely a sylph, for his waist coat is reputed to have enclosed v en persons of ordinary size, with room to spare. One of the first recorded anti-fat campaigns was that inaugurat ed by William Banting, who published a pamphlet on the subject in 1883. He urged as a cure greater moderation in the eating of sugar and starch. and gained so much fame that today 0 banting"' is common vernacular for j undertaking a restrictive diet. He Would Like to Know. An omcsal of the village Improve ment society in New Jersey tells of a note received from a Japanese of an b Ingulring turn of mind. The subject b of the inquiry is one that is familiar to most parts of the world, but no doubt the community of which it was e made felt lattered by this evidence of its popularity. The note read: "The honorable seciety are asked In what way do they rid themselves of him the much troablesome mosquitoT How do they approach him in his 1 house among the reds and mares, so as to remove him efectually tran the dangers that he ares to people of good minds wheee -,m he must pune tare All this I weuld like so much to know." - Anclent Yusatsa Relkic.

Strange Birds in Belgian Cengs. lStrange blrds make their habitat Il the Belgian (3Congo, In the dense forsut and high grass regio of Central Afri ca. The hoenbill, for instance makes a eurious nest. The female lays her eggs ina a hollow tree. The bole is alled up with mud, leaving a aper tare, too small to allow the female to get out, but through which the male supplies food while the eggs are hatching. Weaver birds weave t[eir nests out of strips of grss or leaves, and, although the entrance to the nest Il from below, it is so constructed that the eggs never roll out A variety of birds caltled gram warblers sew their nests of grass between leaves or weeds is the same manner.
