A business man rises to welcome hla wife or a woman friend or a wpman relative who visits him at his office, but he does not rise to greet his ste nographer or other woman employees. No business woman Is Justified In re senting this distinction. The custom cannot be construed to mean that the man does not respect his women em ployees highly. It simply means that In the business world, as nowhere else, women and men are all human beings working together, and on much the same plane of courtesy. Novel Treatment. A whirlpool bath is the novel treat ment applied at a hospital In Manches ter, England, for cases of rheumatism, following typhoid and dysentery. The tank, large enough for 12 men, con tains 4 feet of water and Is provided with seats on which the bathers are Immersed to their necks. The temper ature la kept at 03 degrees Fahrenheit, Just below that of the body. The room is qnlet and dimly lighted, and after an hour in the bath the men go to rest rooms. By a Long Path. “All that we possess has come to ns by a long path. There is no Instanta neous liberty or wisdom, language or religion." Even that which comes to us as a sudden revelation Is but the opening of our eyes or'minds to be hold that which has long been begun by toll and struggle. It reaches us as the sunlight does in the morning, when it has travelled around the world. Women Soldiers In China. China had women soldiers long be fore they were known In Russia. Dur ing the Tae Ping rebellion, 1830, women as well as men served in the ranks. In Nanking, In 1853, an army of 500,000 women was recruited. They were divided Into brigades of 13,000 each and were commanded by women officers. Lame Shoulders This ailment is usually caused by rheumatism of the muscles. All that is needed Is absolute rest and a few applications of Chamberlain's Liniment. Try it. TWO DOROTHYS By AGNES G. BROGAN. (Copyright, 1018, by Western Newspaper Union.) As Donald turned the note over In his hand, his fuce was a study. In all the course of his Impulsive career, he had never faced such a situation. To number among one’s acquaintances two “Dorothys,” was natural enough, but to fancy one’s self alternately in love with either of tho charmers—was tragic. This little gray neatly written note added to his perplexities. “Dear Donald,” It said briefly. "'Will you call at our house this afternoon between three and four.’—Dorothy." That was all; to Donald, uuncqunlnt od with the handwriting of either Dor othy, the invitation tormented, while It pleased. Don rumpled his hair as tho thought came to him, reviewing the occur ances of the post few weeks. Not long before, when ho had been talking to Dorothy Reynolds at an evening af fair In her home, he had decided for the hundredth time, that no other girl could be at once so Renslhle and so at tractive* Dorothy was sweet, that was the name for her, and he had told her so, holding her hand behind the shel ter of the ferns. And Dorothy Rey nolds had looked addringly up Into his face, as she promised "sometime,” to let him know her feelings toward him. "We will go on being friends until I am sure, Donald," she had said, "then I will send for you.” And straightway from his love making, Dorothy’s broth er had carried him Into an adjoining room to meet, so Jack Reynolds said, “the prettiest girl In the worn!.” Don tried to turn his eyes away ns «he dimpled and charmed him, tried to force his reluctant bulk from the chair it her side, It wns useless. With nd nlratlon Ills rebellious eyes sought her anile, and recklessly he still Lingered. "You are very Interesting nnd all :hnt, Mr. Burns,’’ she said, "but I am leglectlng my social duties. Let me ice, I uui to give the next dnnee to Tack Reynolds; after that. If you lkc—" "You will dance with me?" l?on had •ngerly Interposed. "I will meet you on the side vornn la," she replied, "and wo will sit It »ut" Don wns elated, too elated to notice ter sudden disapproval when he np >ranched at the end of the dance, to :lnlm his favor. Dorothy Dnlcom leemed to have forgotten her promise. Jut later coming to him upon the ve -andn, she made amends. "Jack Reynolds Is Jealous,” she ex rialned, "when he Is Jealous, ho Is dls i green hie. That Is why I did not want dm to know anything about our visit lere.” "What right has he—’’ Don began tariously, but Dorothy’s silvery luugh nng out. "Why, I believe you are Jealous, too," :he said. As the weeks passed Don wns •bilged to admit that fact. Jnrk Rey lold’s presence at Dorothy Dnlcom’s ilde filled him with wild resentment, ilono with him upon the moonlit ver indn, the girl quieted his disturbing ears. "You are different from all others o me," she murmured; “It Is ns though . had known you always and nl vays.” She wns very beautiful. "Yon nenn,” Don asked abruptly, "thnfyou vould care more for pie more than all •thers?" Dorothy’s lovely eyes studied the stars. "When I am ready to tell you hat,. Don," she said, "I will send for •on." "By George!" he ejncnlnted, "which ever girl sent It, It means I’m engaged, •r will be, promptly." Then he fell to nuslng. Dorothy Reynolds had riot race summoned him by letter. Dur ng all the years of their friendship, jer communications had been spoken >ver the telephone. That wns her irampt way of Insuring an answer. Why, now, should she change? As for Dorothy Dnlcom. Well, she vould probably wlsfi her message to he confidential. Don decided to tnke a chance nnd call at the home where Miss Dnlcom wns a guest. A tenderly .•egretful feeling stole about his heart is he trudged along—tho other Por >thy would be surprised. "Oh! Hang It!" muttered Don fiercely, and then his eyes fell upon two swaying figures In a hammock, lack Reynold’s foot was propelling the hammock, while Dorothy Dnlcom's golden head wns very near Jack’s shoulder. Their backs were to Don as they swung to nnd fra, but the girl’s voice reached him clearly. "You know, .Tack,” she wns saying, "you are different to me from all oth ers; It seems as though I hod known you always—nnd always." The hammock came to an abrupt stop. Mr. Jack Reynolds wns more Impulsive than Donald hod been upon a like occasion. Don wns surprised, as he silently re traced his steps, to find himself un moved by the tnblcnu, surprised at a sense of unmistakable relief pervading his being. Dorothy Reynolds wns on the veran da as he came down the path. "You got my note?" she questioned. "We want your help for our lawn fete this evening. Will you carry some things over in your car?" “If you will go with me, Dorothy, dearest," Don answered with empha sis. A'troubled light In the girl’s eyes dis appeared. "I will go. Don." she softly agreed. The Scrap Book INTELLIGENCE OF SEA GULL Birds Lost Far Inland Recognlxad Bluejacket and Followed Him to Balt Water. That the sea gull is one of the most intelligent of birds Is the declaration of Ensign 11. M. Delanty of Aberdeen, Wash., nn officer attached to tho nav al training station ut the University of Washington, who tells this story to prove his assertion, according to an exchange. A few days ago the officer and a bluejacket toured eastern Washington on recruiting duty. While motoring near Watervlllo they came upon a lone sea gull sitting on a fence post regis tering despair. The bird had evidently flown too far Inland nnd had lost its way back to the briny deep. Rut on getting a look at the husky bluejacket, the bird set up a chattering ns if It had met a long-lost brother. "With re markable Intelligence, the bird associ ated the sailor's uniform with the sea, having doubtless followed many n ship manned by bluejackets," says the of ficer. "The bird rightly reasoned that we were headed for suit water nnd fol lowed us for about forty miles, utter ing fraternizing cries and chirpings of delight from time to time, as It wheeled around our auto. When wo stopped for dinner, the gull, after chattering Its thanks, proceeded on In a westerly course and probably reached Puget sound a few hoars later."

Some Interesting figures about th« rat population of Kansas have been compiled for the federal fond adminis trator of that state. Working with fig ures of European rat surveys made Just before the war. It Is estimated that tho rat population of n city like Wichita is probably equal to the human popu lation, while in the country districts there are at least ten rats for every person. A fair estimate would give 3,000.000 rats for Kansas, each requir ing $2 worth of food a year, a $0,000,- 000 loss. Practically all the rats In Kansas, however, would have to work one year to effect the destruction represented by the careless handling of eggs In that state, for it is estimated that careless handling, storing and shipping cause the destruction of one-fourth of the state’s total egg output for a loss of $5,000,000. Call for Moss Dressings. One million sphagnum moss surgical dressings before July 1 Is the order received by J. W. Ilotson, assistant professor of botany at the University of Washington and northwest director of moss work for the Red Cross. "Auxiliaries composed of innss gath erers will be formed throughout the districts where the moss grows,” says Professor Hotson. "From Alaska large quantities can be obtained fane of charge. I expect to go there soon nnd locate beds." Freshman nnd sophomore girls at the university are making moss pads. The special virtue of moss dressings Is that they are moYc absorbent than cotton nnd are cheaper. They will absorb from ten to twenty times their weight of moisture without becoming soggy r Cat Needed Tuning. The landlady bustled up to her new lodger ns he came down to breakfast the first morning. "Good morning, sir," she wheezed. "GooO morning," said the lodger. "I hope you had a good night’s rest,” snld the landlady. "No,” said the inlld-nmnnered little man. "Your cat kept me awake.” "Oh,” said the Inndludy, tossing her bend. "I suppose you’re going to ask me to have the poor thing killed.” "No, not exactly.” said the gentle lodger. "But would you very much mind having it tuned?"—Pittsburgh Chronicle-Telegraph. Radium at Gaudalupe.

TURKS PROFANE HOLY PLACE Mount Binai Disfigured by All Borts of Markings of Spots That Christiana Hold Sacred. lie must be an unimaginative man, whatever his creed, who call ascend Sinai without a thrill of reverence. Here was given tho law that Is in scribed on the countless tablets of half a world, the maxims that have ruled much of the lives of billions of men and ,women for thousands of years. The barren grandeur of the peaks, the rocky difficulty of the as cent, are pitched In the proper key. Unfortunately, the Moslem rulers of the region have cluttered up the neighborhood of the mount Itself with ull manner of childish legends and "authentic” relics. Orientally toler ant, they have not only accepted tho Jewish traditions of the spot, which have become a part of their great ri val religion, Christianity; they have added to them and overlaid them with all manner of crude superstition. Thus they will show you tho very rock where the children of Israel set up the golden calf, and another com monplace bowlder which Is guaranteed to be the one smitten by Moses when the wandering Hebrews were tldrsty. Exhibit C Is the rock on which Moses broke the first tablets In his anger. Then there Is a garden with a chap el, Inclosing the spot where Elijah was fed by the ravens. A second chapel In the garden Is sacred to Moses. Near by Is a Moslem relic In the shape of u rock which bears the footprint of Mo hammed's camel, u sort of a legendary fossil. Even in a Christian monastery this somewhat primitive insistence on marking the concrete spot where re ligious history was made seems to per sist, for you will be shown an ultar which Is said to be erected over the site of the burning bush. MIND SUPREME OVER PAIN Notable Instances When Agony Was Subdued by Determined Exercise of the Power of the Will. It is said that even the most ncuto physical pain can be overcome by u determined effort of the will. Dr. Edward 11. Clarke suffered from a fatal malady, which produced the most agonizing pain; and yet he could detcrmlnntely withdraw his conscious ness, so to speak, from that pain by fixing it upon another object, that ole Ject being the working out of bis own neutral train of thought In the compo sition of a book. This Is well known to have been the case also with regard to Sir Wal ter Scott, who, during a very sever© nnd painful illness, dictated the "Bride of Laimnermoor.” The most remark able fact about the. composition of this work was that, after Ills recovery, he entirely forgot ull that he had done, the book on its publication coming to blm as an entirely new work, with which he had nothing whatever to do. He only remembered the general out line of the story upon which he had composed his novel; this he had heard In early life, and It remained with blm; but of the working up of this story Into the novel, while he lay oil his sofa contending with paroxysms of agony, he had no recollection. Measuring Thought. Interesting experiments in measuring the action of the mind, or thought, have been made by scientists. It takes about two-fifths* of a second to call to mind the country in which a well known town Is situated, or the lan guage In which a family author wrote. We can think qf the name of the next month In half the time we need to think of the name of the last month. It takes on nn average one-tldrd of a second to add numbers containing one digit, nnd. half a second to multiply them. Such experiments give us wonderful insight Into the mind. Those used to reckoning can ndd two to three In less time than others; those familiar with literature can remember more quickly than others that Shakespeare wrote "Hamlet.” It takes longer to mention a month when a season has been given than to say to what month a season belongs. The time tnken up in choosing a motion can be measured ns well as the time occupied In per ceiving. Bulb Culture Once a Craze. Bulb culture In Europe has bad a particularly Interesting history. The tulip, for instance, has been popular In European gardens for about three centuries, and prior to that time It was cultivated for many centuries ?>y the Turks. Near the close of tho six teenth century the tulip wns Intro duced Into Holland nnd the popularity of the plant Increased so rapidly that by 1034 It had become a craze. For a number of years the wildest specula tion prevailed In tulips nnd enormous prices were paid for ruro bulbs. Five hundred dollars was not nn unusuul amount to pay for a choice tulip, and such bulbs ns the famous Semper Au gustus brought more than SO,OOO apiece. Carried Composition In Head. Mendelssohn was a head worker in composition, in spite of tho long time he spent over bringing such works as the Scotch nnd Italian symphonies, some of the overtures, nnd St. Paul as near ns possible to his Meals of them. His friend, Edward Devrlent, tells us that it wns Mendelssohn’s habit not to write down bis composi tions until be had quite finished them In his head, nnd afterwards had play ed them to his most Intimate friends. DIDN’T KNOW CURLING IRON Easy to Understand That Youthful Member of Chicago Jury Was Not a Married Man. Every man knows what a curling Iron Is, hut does every man know whether or not a curling Iron Is a deadly weapon? The question was raised In Judge Guerin’s court In Chicago recently In the Otto Mathis murder trial. Otto said he stabbed his brother, Edward, when Edward attacked him with a curling Iron, which he thought a dan gerous weapon. The Judge ruled a de scription of the Implement was unnec essary, as everybody knew what It was. "Sure, I know," one spectator whis pered to another. "A curling Iron Is one of those hot things that burn your fingers when you are fumbling around among the things on your wife’s dress ing table." "It looks like a pair of scissors with wooden bundles,” said the other. "And It's deadly, too," a woman whispered. "Mnzle got hers too hot the other night nnd the way it killed a lot of her hair was a caution." “Fortunately,” another woman an swered, "the curling Iron -hath no mis eries that peroxide cannot cure." Assistant State's Attorney Daniel Ramsay Insisted there might be single men on the Jury. The Judge glnuced knowingly at the jurors. The young est looked bewildered, Judge Guerin ordered a description of the weapon supplied. The youngest Juror appeared relieved when he heard what it was. WORK FOR HIGH EXPLOSIVES French Scientist Suggests Their Use in the Reclamation of War- Devastated Orchards. The vigorous growth of wild plants about shell holes lias suggested to M. Andre I'ledallu a novel plan for quick ly restoring war-devastated orchards. The vigor of the weeds Is attributed partly to the Assuring of the soil by the shell-fire and partly to nitrogenous substances Introduced, and In the pro posal to the French Academy It I" concluded that an Ideal orchard soil could be produced by breaking up the rough surface with dynamite In such away that fertilizing mnteriiil* would be driven into tin* soil. The fertilizer would be compressed In paper or celluloid cases around cylinders of tin explosive, which would be fired by a fulminating charge. Holes for the cartridges about two feet deep would be bored with a slick or Iron rod. and In the spherical cavity about 30 Indie* deep producer! by the explosion, the young tree would la* placed and cov ered with tin* fertilizer-charged soil. Perhaps some of the enormous stores of high explosives left over from the war could be utilized In this way. A suggestion already made Is that the United States could put to use some of Its 50.000,000 nr 100.000.000 tons of TNT for reclaiming arid deserts. Irri gating ditches being ring and roads grader] by firing trains of the explo sive placed along the surface. Dog Got the Rabbit. Exploration of caves In South Berk shire, Conn., resulting In the discovery of stalactites and stalagmites, big white spiders weaving their webs, bats In crusted in the crystals nnd a subma rine brook made Jack Newboy of I,on oxrlale recall the tiny that he went rabbit hunting In the Patterson woods. Newboy’s dog chased a rabbit Into :i cave. Jack waited outside for re sults. He waited two hours, called the ring, and. getting no results, went home. He found the ring was at home and had the rabbit. Pat, Ids brother, explained: "I was fishing on a lake not far from the shore when I heard a commo tion In Hu* water near by and was sur prised to see a rabbit In tlie water. As I reached the spot the dog came to the surface, swam after the rabbit and captured ldin.”—New York World. In Daddy's Heart. At Sunday school Dorothy's teacher attempted to explain to the children about keeping their hearts clean and filled with certain desirable qualities. She urged them to think seriously about what they had in their hearts. Dorothy’s hand went up. The teacher gave her permission to speak. “My daddy has nutpicks In his heart." Now the teacher wns sufficiently In terested In the psychology of the thing to go to the mother for the explana tion. Dorothy had recently attended a weiMlng with her parents. When they were looking at the wedding pres ents her mother had laughingly turned to daddy and said : "John, i wish you would open up your heart and give me a handsome act of nutpicks like these." Plagues Not Related. 11. De Brun (Bulletin tie l'Acade mie de Medicine), having had several years' experience In Syria with plague, including an epidemic of pneumonic plague, protests against the view that pneumonia following Influenza may he relnted to the eastern disease. In pneumonic plugue the cough Is charac terized by a quiet, spasmodic expira tion, repeated continuously for long periods every ten to thirty seconds, and might be termed a "whispering cough." Instead of the optimism frequently manifested on the day before death tn Influenza there Is a distressing con sciousness of Impending death In the pneumonic plague patient. Nearly all cases of the latter plague end fatally.

Colorado SATURDAY, J ULY 0, IM9 Build Now— Prices Will Not Recede Tho Minneapolis Nows says: "Judging by history and by sound economic theory it will be a genera tion before pi Ices got back to pre-war levids if they over do.” Cold facts gathered by the govern ment say ‘go ahead' with home building. Up to first of year, farm produce prices had advanced t IB per cent, over pre-war prices. Corresponding figure for lumber was 73 per cent. Commodities in general advanced 113 per cent Building materials (not including steel) advanced 84 per cent. These are the facts. Judging by history and by sound economic theory, it will be a generation before prices get back to pre-war levels, if they ever do. I'robahly there will be a gradual decline, but meantime there will be an evening up. Prices which have gone up fastest and highest will come down first and most. Prices which have made tho smallest comparative advance aro apt to stay up until other prices come down to their level. This last applies to the building materials. Its poor business to wait. It is a pretty smart kid nowadays when it comes to holding a candle to tho old man in knowing, how to do things. In other words no youth is as good as his father and the educa tional system Is largely to blame for tho frightful lapsus that is so appar ent in our modern way of doing things, if such it may be called.— Field and Farm The Joy of Living To enjoy life wo must have good health.
