For 50 cents and by use of the coupon on this page, they may have their writ ing analyzed by the leading practitioner of the science of graphology. Thousands of readers of The Herald submitted samples of their handwriting for examination by De Witt B. Lucas, and hundreds of these have voluntarily written to testify to the faithfulness and helpfulness of the analyses furnished. The article below is the eighth and last of Mr. Lucas's interesting series on graphology. Many readers of The Herald have followed the articles closely and have acquired a knowledge of the principles of graphology that fits them to read the writing of friends and acquaintances.

A college education, good references and "he writes a beautiful hand." Any graphologist could have told thta misguided employer that this new salesman would never make good in that particular kind of Job. What a jiltv it Is that business men generally do not know more about graphology, the art of reading character from handwriting. They would eave them selves many mistakes and as many disappointments If they were able to measure up the applicant's mental depth moral breadth and temper mental height and thu ascertain In advance the cubic measure of his per sonality, without his being aware of It A knowledge of graphology would be the business man's trusty and faithful ally, well worth the time spent in acquiring it. - It would be interesting and helpful to know, for instance, whether the new salesman referred to possessed a good mental balance and keen intelli gence, or whether he was "topheavy. like the specimens illustrated in plate 14. printed herewith Both of these writers clearly exhibit an Ill-ordered method of thought and perception that la as Interesting as it is regrettable.

WASHINGTON. D. C, April IS. The governor of the Hawaiian Islands hat forwarded to the department of commerce, at Washing ton, a suggestion to the effect that molten lava from the crater of the Kllauea volcano be utilized for mak ing sewer pipes the plan being to scoop up the stuff by means of a trolley eiti nded across the fiery pit and car r mg an endless chain of buckets From the buckets it could be poured directly Into the molds, both the ready prepared raw material and the heat being furnished without cost Rener pipes could be manufactured In this way at such small cost that, e-en allowing for expense of trans port Hi ion. the whole United States jnight be supplied with them at Jess than the present market price of the Bitif'l. Bricks of superior quality and durability could be molded in the same fashion, from lava. Bntld Factories on Crater Kdge. Tt is further urged that industrial plants of other kinds might be estab lished about the crater's rim the vol- ano t.eing not of an explosive or dangeious character: geologists call It a "safe" volcano with a view to em ploying, for various manufacturing purposes, tbe unlimited supply of heat which it affords and which now goes nholH- to waste. The Idea is entirely new. but in the npinion of experts, to condemn It off- h-tnd as chimerical would be a mis take. Government geologists, however, are of opinion that experiments of tho kind might be undertaken more profit ably with a volcano nearer and more conveniently at hand, namely. Lassen Peak. In California. Lassen Peak Is the only "burning mountain" within the limits of the United States, but I is a real volcano, fully active, though It emits streams of lava only once in a while. nd there Is enough fire in side of It to run all the factories in the United States. The most Important eruption of Las sen Peak within recent years occurred 20 months afo More accurately speak ing It began then, and has continued in a more or leas Intermittent way ever alncL Molten lava rose In its crater, slightly overflowing the top, huge "bombi" (masses of rock) were thrown considerable distances, and clouds of superheated gases wiped out part of a forest and a number of human habi tation Tito Miles nigh. The summit of Lassen Peak is near 1 two miles above sea level. Its sides have an average slope of about 30 de grees. A tunnel drifn into It at a point 2.100 feet below the crater, on the northwest side, would have to ex it nd not more than a mile to reach -ocks hot enough to fcibid further ex t en i on From thence further progress 7i iim 1 b borings with big oure-drllls, tb hoies thus made being carried far ninigh to leaeh the molten stuff In Siii' the oli ano Through uoh .i hoi, the engineers wot. a cxtiud mo pipes ot tungsten steel, a material sufficiently heat proof to be unaffected by molten lava. Water Mould be forced by powerful pumps through one of the pipes, and would come back through the other as superheated steam. Steam, of course, Is power; It would be employed for running engines. The engines would operate dynamos, whereby the energv would be converted Into electricity, ' which could be transmitted over wires to any distance within 200 miles, for I operating factories, for running Irrlga- ! tion pomps, or whatever other purposes might be desired ' Kxtraorditiarv though It means this , method of deriving heat from a vol- , cano Is deemed far from impracticable ' The core-drills required for the pur pose, lR Inches in diameter ithev could be made much larger if d sired) are already In familiar use for making borings through the hardest rotks as for example, in providing for the found ations of tall buildings In New York City: the basic structure of the island of Manhattan being gneiss and granite i It would be necessary to fetch th steam out of the mountain in order-' to use it As experts explain the mat ter, one or more chambers of adequate size cut out of the living roi k fa- I inside of the volcano, would s rve to ' contain all requisite machinery I his i very method Is today adopted tn 'he great copper mines of Butte (Coir-i-l i). and In the wonderful mines of rhe J Comstock system, in Nevada hug r e- I chanlcal plants, with steam engines' and dynamos, are housed nearly a quarter of a mile below the level of. the earth. I Interior of a Volcano. I To grasp the Idea here set fith on should clearly understand the n't nal anatomy of a volcano. Take Lasien Peak for example. If one were able to see through It and Into the earth I beneath tor an Indefinite distance, on Would discover that tho crater was merely the opening of a huge pipe running vertically down into the core of the terrestrial planet The moun tain Itself (like any other volcano) Is simply an ashplle, composed of cin ders thrown out of the vent In past ages. According to the Teckonlng ot the geologists, the vertical pipe Is abou: 24 miles long. At that depth beneath the earth's crust it' reaches the mass of molten stuff that Is the planet's eore. a region of fire Indescribably In tense. In which all rocKa and metals Me fused and mingled. Why the pipe' The answer is, Xor an escape valve. The earth's Internal fire, Is always seeking to force Its way ou,t and, If there were no volcanoes to relieve the pressure, there is no telling what frightful explosive mischief tt mit,ht I do.
