SAYS MONEY NO GUARANTEE OF WORTH
J. Ogaen Armour or Chicago, who Is himself worth numerous millions, does not think much of money. That is, money in his philosophy is a guar anty neither of worth nor character and is by no means that touchstone of happiness which it is generally sup posed to be, particularly by those without it. Also, he observed that the poor man has as much chance to be happy as the rich man. Incidentally, Mr. Armour said that . he was nothing more than a working man, and a hard working man at that. Mr. Armour said: "Maybe you don't think I work! Why, every man must work-if he is worth a million. if he is worth a hundred millions or k if he is dependent on his weekly sal. ary. We ought all to take our places in the great organization and work of the world "You know money doesn't mean everything. In fact, very little in some cases, for the full value of it is not gained. Take the sons of some rich men; their money Is squandered in drinking and otherwise. "I am the son of a working man. I was brought up to work. My father tramped from the Atlantic to the Dutch Flat in California. With a pick and a shovel he worked as a miner and was glad to work. He had to work to live. "8ometimes a poor man is far and away better off than a rich man. I watch my men. I know the lives of many of them. That doesn't mean only the men who are close about me, but the men in my plant Some with only a moderate salary are far happier than men to whom the worth of a bank means no more than a box of clgars in value to the ordinary person. Be eapse a man has money, that does not make him any better. Perhaps it would be better if all men were .equal in wealth; still if that utopian condi tlon were brought about, there would be some in the world that would corral the dollars of the others and we woulf come back to the conditions of the present day. "But, let me tell you something right here. I have no rich men working for me; I don't want them. R hen a man takes a position and is rich enough not to be dependent on the salary which comes from that position he has reached a stage when he Is not worth a continental." BOARD THAT ORIGINATES AND DIRECTS In Wisconsin history is being made In respect to state government. With a board headed by Governor McGov ern and including strong members of the senate and house of representa tives of the general assembly-also the secretary of state-the finances of the commonwealth are kept under close surveillance and, as ah all-Im portant departure, progressive eco nomic and social reforms are investi gated and here and there put into practice. The state board of public affars is the name given to this body of such sweeping and variegated power. It has seven members. The board is a combination of the legislative and executive. Legislative ly it investigates the financial needs of the state departments before the legislature itself convenes; the board makes up a budget of departmental Saenses and submits this to the gen eril assembly. This budget is based on actual needs. Economy is the slogaa in compiling it, The board supplants half a dozen committees of the assembly, not only in regard to finances, but in the field of new legislation, aeforms and progressivre laws that mesa something to the people-all the people-of the great badger state This unique governmental force was created by the legislature of 1911. hlsted of providing for several separate committees to investigate and re et oas a variety of highly interesting matters, the legislature enumerated peadlng problems in one bill and appointed one. committee to consider all. The reven able men who do this work serve without extra pay and are asigned by a staff of economists, educators, accountanta and students. Summarzled, the bokard's chief duties are: 1. It is a governor's council with the governor as chairman. It advises hlm on state affalrs and discuasses with him all changes In state admlnistra thv matters. 2. It is a hold-over legislative committee that studies all the great problems affeeting the people's welfare, social and economic, and reports smeething coscrete on them to the legislature. S. It sto a bureau of economy and efficiency in state administration. makl. a rp the budget and cutting down expenses wherever possible. inley J.

Australian Chemist Gives Reason for His Selief--He Makes Discoveries That Prove of Value to Culti vators of Land. Sydney. N S. W.-One of the most remarkable features of Australian ge ography is the presence of vast un derground seas which cover enor mous areas in Queensland and New South Wales, the smaller ones in Vic taria, and along the extreme western coast. The problems connected with their origin, constitution and distribu tion are among the most interesting known to science, while there seems some ground for the claim that our great artesian system, with all its mineral contents, promises to be of more value to Australia than all her other mineral resources combined. R. Symmonds, a chemist attached to the public works department of New South Wales, who has made this sub ject his own, has just had a book pub lished by the department which is full of original research and startling conclusions and in which he deals ex haustively with the whole question from every point of view. He dif fers entirely from the recent Inter state conference on artesian waters, which unhesitatingly pronounced in favor of the meteoric origin of the water, i. e., that Is, that the rainfall has percolated the porous beds under the influence of hydraulic conditions. The diminished flow in many of the wells, which has been so frequently noted of late, was attributed by the conference to the continual draining of the supply by the wells, which have been put down in much greater num ber of late years, and, therefore, they recommended that some of them should be closeS down. On the other hand, Mr. Symmonds holds that the supply is plutonic, or. in other words, that it comes from the molten lavas in the Interior of the earth. It appears that when a crys talline rock like granite is heated to redness in vacuo enormous volumes of gas and vapor are given off, which accounts for a great deal of volcanic action, for the presence of the large amount of gas found in artesian wa ter, and apparently for much of the water itself. The fact that there is very little common salt and other chlorine compounds in the artesian waters at the lower levels, the amount diminishing with the depth, is regard ed as strongly supporting the plutonic origin, as, if it were meteoric, the wa ter would absorb mcre instead of less salt in its passage through the soil. Several other facts are adduced in support of the conclusion that the ar tesian waters have been expelled in a state of vapor from molten masses of rock in the interior of the earth, such as the high temperatures of much of the deeper water, the large quantities of gas imprisoned therein, the ascent Of tha water, which is so noticeable a feature in connection with the bores, being attributed by Mr. Symmonds to the presence of the gas and its expansive force. The complete absence of chlorine. from the hot water encountered dur HAS HORRIBLE ,TALE Consumptive, White-Haired at '4 28, Is Admitted to U.

The man who wrote his name, Miguel Rios, though white-haired and wrinkled, is but 28. Also he is stone deaf. When he arrived, a month ago, from Iquitos, he was held and was to be de ported. Inquiry developed. the fact that his father, in Lima, Peru, is im mensely wealthy, and also that young Rios has plenty of gto!d. Rios, a year ago, was a gay young senor in Lima, Peru, the only son of a rich father, and he tprned night into day. When thL good doctors told him he was a victim of the white plague he gathered a camping outfit and started for the Andes, which lie back of the town. The mountains had cured others of consumption and Rios went light-heartedly, his guide leading the llama which carried the camp pack. While hunting one day he parted from his guide, and night fell. For days he wandered, living on berries and roots. One hundred and eighty days from the day he was lost some Putomayo en Indians, a few miles from Iquitos, '- stopped to watch five vultures wheel ing slowly overhead. By gauging the center of their flight the Indians vs found the pitiful wreck of what had r once been young Miguel Rios. He was unconscious and nearly dead. His hair had turned snow white and he was totally deaf. Jabbering like an idiot, he shrieked at his rescuers. 'r Careful nursing at Iquitos brought back sanity. Then he learned he had crossed the Andes. HELPS BOY, GETS FORTUNE nd Laberer's Wife, of South Shields, Eng ex land, Left $128500 by Youth Ire She Befriended.

A ing the excavation of the Simplon tun nel is now accepted, says Prof. Gregory. as proof that such water came from a plutonic, and cObld not have come from a meteoric source. Several most interesting discoveries have been made in connection with the artesian waters of recent years. One was that the constituent elements in some of the higher and lower lev els in the same well differ very con siderably, the former being generally injurious and the latter beneficial to vegetable growth. The injurious ef fects of the higher level waters are attributed to an alkali which com bines wtih clay to form a substance known as a diffusible colloid, which expands in soil treated with these waters, blocks the pores and renders the soil unfit for agriculture. Hence the bad reputation of artesian waters as an irrigant for agricultural pur poses. But this difficulty can be overcome by constructing the wells in such a way as to enable the beneficial waters at the lower depth to be tap ped to the exclusion of the injurious ones at the upper level PAYS $150,000 FOR PORTRAIT Henry E.

REGIMENT IS PENSIONLESS Extraordinary Discovery Is Made as to Ninth Kansas Cavalry-One Trooper Makes Application. Topeka. Kan.-Not one member of the 9th Kansas cavalry, one of the state's most active regiments In the Civil'war, is drawing a pension This fact developed recently upon receipt of a letter by state officials from H. B. Lapham of Lorton, Va., a member of the 9th Kansas. Lapham says that when he applied for a pension recently he was noti fled by the pension officials that no other member of the regiment had ever drawn a pension, that he was the first to make application and that he would have to induce five other mem bers to apply, making six in all, be fore the consideration of granting pensions could be taken up. Informa tion regarding surviving members of the regiment is being sought by Lapham. GIRL ESTABLISHES RECORD In One Day Fills 114 Boxes of Oranges With an Average of 150 Each.

Paris.-The curious mobilization in cident when 12 villages o nthe east ern frontier were deceived into think ing that France was at war, has end ed in a storm of congratulations. The brigadier of gendarmerie, Blion, is at liberty. The fault for the mis take was not his fault at all. The telegraphic apparatus in Ahracourt postomce woke the postmaster up in the middle of the night, and, being half asleep, he muddled his instruc tions and transmitted mobilization or dera to 12 villages without adding the word "exercise," which would have told those concerned that the - order was merely for maneuvers on a small scale. M. Default, the postmaster, has now been rechristened "En Diffaut" ("in fault") and has been temporarily sus pended from his oice. But everybody else has received warm congratulations from headquar ters. All the mobilization operations were caried out without a hitch, and wonderfully quickly. Horses and food were requisitioned, everything was done in capital order, the men came to the colors singing all the reservists came from twenty to forty-five years old-and marched brightly and without excitement to their posts. The result is an excellent object lee son of the perfect readiness of the east ern frontier if war were to break out, and M. Miller, the French minister of war, has telegraphed congratula tions to all concerned. GIANT TREES ARE FOUND Centuries Old, Several Hundred Feet High and Growing In Little Ex plored Canyon. Hood River, Ore.-"In the forest reserve between the headwaters of the 4 west fork of Hood river and the Bull Run lake are some btrge trees, bigger than any I have ever seen anywhere else in the northwest," said George T. Prather, a pioneer news paper man and orchardist of the Hood River valley. "My attention was first called to the giants of the forest about fifteen years ago by L. Ferdinand Floss of Latour-. elle, who made a visit every summer to the northwest base of Mount Hood. Mr. Floss at that time had a com munication in the Oregonian relative to the trees." The trees are said to be several hun dred feet high and to stand on the fiat of a hidden canyon. Steep bluffs on either hand shut in the gorge in which they rear themselves, and this reason is given for failure of those who fish in Lhe Lost Lake district to have found the trees. There are two species of the great trees. One has a yellowish and not very rough bark and is straight and as round as a candle. It has no Hmbs to a great height, and has a beautiful crown. The second species is cedar. ) TOMB SAFE FROM THIEVES Californian Guards Family Sarcoph. agus From Vandals-Alarm'Rings at Police Station. Los Angeles.
