Department of Agriculture Hae Taken
Up New tine, Which le Bound to
Be of Interest
The department of "agriculture has
begun the extensive observation of the
volcanoes within its borders and in
sular possessions, and has recently
taken formal charge of the observa
tory on Kllauea, Hawaiian islands.
Prof. T. A. Jaggar, Jr., formerly of the
Massachusetts Institute of Technology,
who has been director of the observa
tory since its foundation, will remain
in charge. The Investigations at Kll
auea were begun in 1912, under the au
spices of the Massachusetts Institute
of Technology, and since 1913 have
been maintained at the expense of the
Hawaiian Volcano Research associa
tion, consisting chiefly of residents of
Honolulu. It is expected that the
weather bureau's work in vblcanology
will be developed In many details and
eventually be extended to Alaska and
other regions under the control of the
United States In which active vol
canoes exist.
Resuscitation Record.
What Is said to be the record for re
suscitation from drowning was accom
plished by United States life-savers
after the victim had been submerged
for six minutes. Among a great many
persons the erroneous belief exists that
persons can be resuscitated after hav
ing been in the water a great length
of time. Cases have been known where
resuscitation methods were used for
hours after the drowned persons had
been under water for a half-hour, or
even longer. Thus It. will be seen that
drowning Is a quick death and the
hazard of the water correspondingly

That Quality, Among Many Others,
Accounts for Andrew Jackson's
Rise to Greatness.
The boyhood friends of Andrew
Jackson, so the story goes, could never
quite understand how Jackson became
so great a generalnot to say presi

simple pioneer citizens at home.
"Why, Jim Brown, right down the
pike here," they said, "could throw
Andy three times out of four and look
where he Is now 1"
"How did there happen to be a
fourth time?" asked some one. "Usu
ally It's three times and out isn't it?"
"Sure' it is. But Andy, you see,
never had the sense to know when he
was beat. He would never stay
throwed. So, by and by Jim would get
tired out throwing him and stay
throwed himself. And then Andy
would think he'd beat him."
There is a whole sermon in a nut
shell hi that simple little anecdote.
The thing that counts is not how many
times you are "throwed," but whether
you are willing to "stay throwed."
Your adversary, whether he be a
person or a misfortune or a difficulty,
or just a hard job, can be tired out hi
the end by throwing you just as sure
ly, If not as swiftly, as by your throw
ing him. It is merely a question of
which of you gives hiIn his mind
first and "stays throwed." Remember
