EXPLAINING GRADES IN ARMY Fanciful and Pretty Tae* of the Origin of Insignia Which Odnote Martial Rank. Fanciful indeed is the tale woven about the selection and origin of the various marks of army insignia. The4 begins with a two-barred I fence, nelr a group of trees. One of s these is a sturdy oak and another a r silver poplar, the tree which grows t to greatest heights in our forests. Above this tree files an American i eagle. It is night and the stars look t down upon the scene. t The first step, or first rank of a comn f missioned officer Is climbing the first I bar of the fence, and is denoted by j theneo bar on a first lieutenant's a shoulder. Another step up and the I officer has his foot on the second bar u of the fece-the two bars surmounted a being indicated by the two-bar mark I et the captain. The next stage of the I climb upward is the branches of the trees, and the rank of major, denoted I by the gold oak leaf on the shoulder, I has been reached. In order to go higher the candidate for higher rank must now surmount 4 the tall silver poplar, and when he has doae so be is entitled to wear the asil 4 ve leaf of the lieutenant colonel. The 4 eagle soaring over the treetops indl Cates the rank of colonel-the silver 1 eagle being worn by officers of that rank.

Once more the Ruhr valley, Ger- a many's beehive of Industry, has come to the fore in world interest, with the suggestion that France may seizse this region to force the payment of repara tions. Merely as a river, this Ruhr, barely at 150 miles long, is not important. Down at the Rhine, below where Caesar bridged ft it at Andernach, below where Yankee to doughboys now wash their shirts In ol its green flood and British Tommies Is play at soccer above the bones of bish- ly ops, the small crooked stream flows in B from the east. But it fows through n an4 lends its name to a tiny region - sot equaled anywhere for Intensity of h industry and potential political impor tance. Cl Viewed in the light of events since w the war, it seems safe to predict that a the course of life in Europe for the fi next generation may depend on what T Is happening now along this short, a crooked, but busy stream. b The Ruhr, as this famous region is t commonly called, is not a political sub division of Germany; it is merely an a Industrial district, smaller in area than g Rhode Island, but crowded with mines 1; and factories from end to end and o settled, in spots, with 1,800 people to ii the square mile. t Tiny as R is, a mere speck on the a map, It produces in normal times over 100,000,000 tons of coal a year; it f mines much of the iron ore its many a mlls consume, and the steel wares of t Solingen have been famous since the t Middle ages i From Rasen there is trundled out, m month after month, a parade of fin- t ised engines, canrs, and farm imple- I meats, to say nothing of tools, shaft- I ng, ship-frames, bridge steel, and f plates, that compete In the markets of the world from Java to Jerusalem. I One German writer, with character istle racial precision, figures out that the volume of raw sad finished prod acts handled in the Ruhr ery work lag day would load a train of cars 80 miles long ! What the Ruhr Is Like. To grasp quickly just what the Rubr would look like if painted in on a ma, take your pencil and draw a horseshoe-shaped figure, startng north east from Dusburg, on the Rhinae; then curve east and southeast, so that Dort muad stands at the toe of the dse.; thence south at uages, southwest to Barmen, and thenme straight on to strike the Rhine again at a point north I of Cologne. Then think of the Penasylvania coal fields packed lnto this tiny area; pour In the combined populations of Phil adelphia, Baltimore, Cleveland sad St. Louis. Then take a fock of the big gest American steel mills and railroad shops you can think of and set them dow aleong the Ruhr. !1l1 in the re maiing smaller aps with paper, silk 1 and cotton aills, lass factories, tan series, dye, chemical and salt works.

Esgen's Sudden Rise. "Boom" towns of mushroom growth dp are not peculiar to America, as the 1 startling rise of Essen proves. Though My founded away back In the Ninth cen- MN tury, it slumbered along for hundreds thi of years, an obscure, unimportant ham Iet. *Even as late as 1850 It had hard- BI ly more than 10,000 people. Then the Krupp boom-the rise of the greatest machine shop the world has ever seen -struck it, and today the city houses half a million. Set In the heart of the coal fields, crowded with endless Industrial plants whose tall chimneys belch eternal smoke and fumes, the great workshop fairly throbs with power and energy. The roar and rattle of ceaseless wheels and the din of giant hammers pound Ing on metal seem to keep the whole town atremble. Here every form of Iron and steel article is made, from boys' skates to giant marne'engine shafts. Curious ly enough, even some of the smoke, or the fumes from the smokestacks, Is caught and converted into a gas that furnishes more power to ran the mills! More than a hundred years ago the first Krupp set up his small, crude shop and began to make by hand the tools, the drills and chisels, used by tanners, blacksmiths and carpenters along the Ruhr and the Rhine. He al so mi dies for use In the mint of the eat. Within 80 years, due to the old ambltion for expanslmO, Krupp tools were known and used as far away as Greece and India. Then came the great era of mass production In steam engines, hammers, - steel tires for railway cars, cast-steel shafts for river and ocean steamers, and finally that astonlshing output of guns and armor plate which brought the militaristle nations of the world The daily roar of artillery at the proving grounds, where each new gun, was tested, added to the din of whistles, rushing trains, and rattling gears, made pre-war Ruhr probably the noisest place on earth. It a noisy eogh new, but the great guns are silent; Krupp makes them no more. The big lathes that ane made gums for every nation, from Chile to Chinba now turn out shaftting for marine and ether engines. Box ears for Belgium. car wheels for South America, sad whole tram-line system for the Dutch East Indles were some of the orders being filled a few months ao. Everybody is a Worker. This Bohr is pre-eminently th babi tat of labor. Everybody works, and nearly everybody works with his hands. An army of chemists, enginees and technleal men is employed, of course; but they form merely a small elemenat of the grimy, dusty, sweaty populk tion that keeps the coal moving, the furnaces rearing, and the big lathes turning, The population, varously estimated at froe three ad me-half to four NM lies, is not easy to determine, be cause thousands come and go as the tide of trade rises and falls; and so wher is the world-wide house short age more keenly felt than In this of the mines the government has set up temporary barracks where thao sands of mlaers are housed, In the more picturesque and les crowded spots of the Ruhr the overe lorss of Indstry have reared their villas ad speelous homes; but a dis iaetive leisure class, an idle rich, like the groups conspleauou o Charlettea berg, Dresdn or Wiesden, is not tome.& aerre re sa re who lave rses, bt they are the ased anad pastimed woMre, dosg comfort ably n the clean. casy celnles belt for them in cttis Ike sem.
