' ~·' A ~ i~j' I.3: DIPLOMAT SANG OF NATURE Attitude of Man Who Outwitted Rus. sian Statesmen Impressed Amer. ican Traveler in Japan. "MacDonnel and myself dined with Baglwara and Kuroda at a Japanese restaurant," Willard Straight wrote In his diary in May, 1905, says Asia. "Gelshas danced and T cannot say that I was particularly impressed. Their attitudes seemed awkward, particu larly the strange heel-and-toe move ment. Hagiwara's song on the beau. ties of Seoul impressed me more than anything else. He, the first secretary of the legation, sat there and sang of the spring flowers, the tender green foliage near his home, of tle summer scenes on the river, the silver shining moon, of the autumn and the golden maple, of the snows that come with the shortened days and the whitened hills. He Improvised as he went along. He seemed so near to nature It is the keynote of Japanese life. The diplomat, the man who with his chiefs outwitted the Russians, sang of the simple woodland and its charms. We cold westerners are too fearful of raising 'a scornful laugh ever to show our true feelings in such an open'way. Thle soldier fghting with every sclentific appliance known in modern warfare, understapding its mechanism, finds pleasure In'admiring the Iris bloom or the cherry blots soma r' Larynxiess Man Can Whisper. How a man whoie whole larynx has been cut out can continue to talk is told by Dr. T. Horshino of Nuate, Japan, in the Annals of Otology, Rhinology and, Laryngology (St, Louis). Df. Horshino describes the operation by which he removes the Irynx nto serious cases of cancer and provides for respiration after it has gone. He furnished the patient with a rub: ber tube, one end of which is inserted Into the trachea (windpipe) and the other end is held in the mout!h. By sending his breath through ,the tube and "vorking his Ilpa. teeth, tongue, palate and pharyngeal muscles the man can whisper in such a way as to be understood. ' Artificial larynges have been made for such caset, but they are- complex affairs, and Dr. Hoshino says patients amuch prefer the tube. Stacking Cereals. One year's harvest of our cereals would fil a canyon 100 feet wide, five miles long and two'thirds of a mile deep . The Belaifl Aaerlcan estimates that this harvest of a single season in the United States, if stacked on one agre of. land, .,would form a ,column 214 times as high as the Woolworth bury the whole of Central park to a depth of 190 feet.

Berea college, at the foot of the Owumberland mountains, in Kentucky, has the unique distinction of owning two mountains, 4,000 acres of forest, Its own sawmill, but never cutting a sound tree, writes Marie Dlckore In the American Forestry Magazine. This wood Is used for the college, for pow er, for heat and In the many cozy fire. places in the dormitories and In the great open fireplace which delights every traveler who stops at Boone tav ern. The sawmill, as well as the 4,000 acres of forest reserve, provides not only ample practical experience for the students, but also actual labor for those students who work for their edq cation. The sawmill is operated by steam, and, like every other industry at Berea college, Is run by students, who work at least two consecutive hours per day under the supervision of a superintendent of -labor, who in turn Is responsible to the dean of labor. Students at Berea are given the op portunity to earn their expenses, and they may select the work, which is paid for at the regular rates according to the student's ability and efficiency. As every student In the college must work the minimum of two hours per day, suitable occupation meat be pro. vided by the dean of labor and in the forestry department the students are very happy patroling the forest, mark ing the dead timber, hauling the fallen timber to the sawmill, cutting It there Into the required lengths, and then hauling the logs to wherever needed an the campus. No sound timber Is cut, as there is enough of the other to supply all needs. UNEARTH SKELETON OF GIANT Bones of Supposed Mound Builder Those of Man Eight or Nine Feet High. SDr. W, J. Holland, curator of the CarnegIe museum, Pittsburgh, and his assistant, Dr. Peterson, a few days ago opened up a mound of the ancient race that inhablted this section and se ured the skeleton of a man who when in the flesh was between eighi and polne feet In height, says a Greens burg (Pa.) dispatch to the Phlladel phia Inquirer. This mound, which was originally about 100 feet long and more than 12 feet high, has been somewhat worn down by time. It is on the' J. R. lecrist farm in South Huntlngton township. This farm has beep in the Secrlst name for more than a cen ter. ~tury. The mdst interestlng feature in the recent excavation was the mummified torso of the human body, which the experts figured was laid to rest at lgat 400 years ago, Portions of -the bones dug up and the bones in the legs, Prof. Peterou declares, are those of a person between eight and naie feet in height, ~he scientist figures that this skeleton was the framework -of a person of the prehis toric race that inhabited this section before the American Indians, The torso and the portions of the big skeleton were shipped to tbe Car , l nus meunum. Drs Holland an' Peterson supervised the'exploratiohs on the B'lerat mound with the great est of~Care, The curetors blleve the isa whose skeleton they secured be longed to the mound bullder class Golf Ball isPlaysed Sense teople. who· don't believe that golf bilns have, sone sense of their own keuldl stand mall show just now in an arguiuleit with a plraer on the Rom ford Illnk, who 'made a badly-sliced tee shot, which carrle* the hall across the,ro ndway Into the open. upstairs window of a house - When the golfer went to retrieve bai he found it on the seat of the frnt .toor of the house,-waitinlg for him Ukq i good chIld.
