SUPPLY OF POTASH ASSURED
Enough in Green Sand of New Jersey
to Satisfy American Farmers for
Right at our door and until a few
months ago quite unsuspected, lies
enough potash to supply the needs of
every American farmer for a thousand
years. It is the famous green sand
of New Jersey-millions upon millions
of tons of which are found in that
state alone and running all the way
down as far as Virginia.
The Scientific American relates that
half a century ago local farmers used
it as a fertilizer, but for some reason
abandoned it. Now its value has been
recognized again and a big factory is
being built at New Brunswick, N. J.,
for turning the green sand into pure
At a recent meeting of the Ameri
can Chemical society R. Norris Shreve
read a paper in which he described the
process. This involves treating the
green sand with milk of lime at about
470 degrees F. for one hour. Caustic
potash is the initial result, but this is
easily changed into other potash com
pounds. Potassium nitrate is shown to
be the best form In which to produce
the green sand potash for the. fertllzer
industry, for in It are united two of
the most essential fertilizing elements
-nitrogen and potash.-New York
Very few people could say off-hand
the occasion when a king of England
"gave away" his daughter in marriage,
writes an English correspondent. As
a fact, authorities are quite hazy about
it. But this is certain, that the last
reigning king of England to have a
daughter married goes beyond recollec
tion; for It was neither Edward VII.,
of course, nor George IV., both being,
in turn, prince of Wales when their
respective daughters were married.
The last instance, then, was that of
George III., who came to the throne
1760 and died 1820. His eldest daugh
ter was married in 1797, the third 14
1818, the fourth in 1816. The case,
however, of any only daughter goes
back to Benry I., in the Eleventh cen
tury. His only daughter Matilda mar
ried Henry V, emperor of the West,
when her father had been four years
king of England.
Johbnnle, a Columbus youngster, had
only four candles on his last birthday
cake, but he is already well versed in
legal procedure. Being in need of
having one of his teeth extracted he
was taken to the office of a dentist.
When perched in the chair he decided
that he did not wish to part company
with his ailing tooth and could not be
persuaded to open his mouth. With
consummate skill the doctor distracted
his attention and made him gap with
wonder at a fabricated tale. In went
the forceps and out came the tooth
before Johnnle realized it. The boy did
not say a word until he started to
leave the office, when he tumrned on
the surprised doctor and snad se
Sriously: "Blame you, doctor, I hmve a
good mind to prosecute- you for this !"
1 Eagles Dislike Airplanes.
SEagles are very jealuiu of the air
plane's rivalry to their age-long Imon
archy of the air. One Ivilot, recently
flying down over Scotland toward En:g
land, suddenly saw an eagle mnake a
ferocious swoop at him. It (lashed
Sright into the whirling propeller and
broke one of the blades, forcing the
pilot to make an awkward landing In
an unsuitable country. Another eagle,
after wheeling around a monoplane,
evidently seeking for a vulnerable
spot, flew down directly at the pilot
in his cockpit. Luckily he had a pistol
close at hand, and drove away the bird
with a succesalsion of shots.

Eggs and beeves are not the only
things that are kept in cold storage.
The fresh fern leaves that adorn the
luncheon tables of hotels on occasion
are probably from some ice chest and
are taken out as demanded. They
grew, very likely, in some woods near
a country village and were shipped
by the ton during the summer months.
It is said New York city uses 15,000,
000 fern fronds every year and some
New England woods have been de
nuded of the plants.
