Mariners soy that In the midst of the Atlantic, about wliere the twenty-fifth meridian west from Greenwich crosses the eqoator, there lies a region, of rn.wtery. It is on the line that ships take from Madeira to Brazil. Only wllhin the past half century has it been sounded and its strange phe nomena reported. One investigator declared that he law the sea about half u mile from his vessel suddenly disturbed. For about two minutes it boiled up violently as from a subterranean spring. Through out the day there were observed great patches of discolored water which had nactly the appearance of extensive shouts. These and similar phenomena are f requently observed in this part of the ocean. Often a ship reports that she has experienced a violent shock similar to that which is felt (when a ruck is struck. Sometimes ji great rumbling is heard, like that of 'a heavy chain running through the, hawse pipes, and the vessel quivers like a leaf in the wind. At another time, in - smooth water, a vessel has been known to heel over suddenly, as if she bad run on a sand bank. Before this part of the ocean was as thoroughly sounded and surveyed as it Is now these phenomena were attrib uted to the presence of unmarked sand banks and rocky shoals, and the old charts were marked accordingly. But it must have astonished the mariner somewhat to find that he got no sound ings with his deep sea lead Immediate ly after experiencing one of these shocks. It is now generally believed that sub marine earthquakes are the true cause of these convulsions. Youth's Companion.

' It Is only in recent years that Monte negrins have begun to appreciate the services of the hospital. Hulme Bea man, after visiting the country in ISSi), wrote that the people "take very little care of their children, and only the sound and strong grow up. In after life, too, they are extremely averse to sanitary precautions or medical treat ment, and a sick Montenegrin Is almost synonymous with n dead man. At least he at once gives himself up and, if bt recovers, looks upon it as a curious freak lu nature's laws. The few who reluctantly submit to losing an arm or a leg invariably refuse anaesthetics and converse with their friends, smok ing a cigarette while the knife and aw are at work." .Mrs, Leonard II. llucon, who has been visiting her mother in Clurcniont, X.

LA BOH NOTES OF WIDE INTEREST Many working people are realizing that they cannot buy as much as they formerly could with their money. Sure ly it would seem that all workers could realize the fact. Vet so cleverly is the capitalist ryatcm operated that there aro millions who fail to see the seriousness of the present situation. The estab lished newspapers are silent on the sub ject. The attention of the people is di verted by all sorts of schemes. J he sin ister attempt of the rulers of America to-day is to keep the appearance of proerity afloat. . lo this end the whole machinery of commercial society, is engaged in cover ing up the holes and bare spots of our industrial walls, tinsel, draperies anil various brands of hangings are tacked up. The dazzling riches of the upper class are continually kept before the puiiiie eve. Credit and installment schemes for buying homes and lots "on time," methods of buying furniture, jew els and watches, "the tick" way of get ting food and other necessaries are creat ed to rob the wage earner and fool him into believing that his lot is not so bad after all. A slum installment plan prosperity, glittering about him, benumbs his mind. He is unable to see below the glitter of the surface. Wliile the workers are be ing pilfered by these means, the screws are being fastened tighter on their lives. Wages remain fixed. I'rices keep going higher. Freedom becomes more aud more a myth to him. The ultra rich do not have any care as to these things. The despicable "crawfish" climbers are too busy aping this set to worry. The workers are too busily engaged in meet ing their bills each week to find time to think the "why" of the bills. Many working people cannot see that I the so-called prosperity is enslaving I them more each day that it continues. They do not know that the whole ar rangement is unnecessary. The reason that wages are fixed and that prices rise is not hard to understand. The control of wages and prices lies in the hand of a few people who own the industries of America. The lower wages are and the higher prices are, the richer and wealthier they are. It is to their interest to keep the present kind of. "prosperity" going. Real prosper ity demands a great income for labor. Therefore, real prosperity is unattain able in our present system. To obtain greater income and lower prices, the working class will have to control wages and prices. This is impossible as long as the workers do not own the industries. mum number of hours as a work day for children. Thirteen states have boil er Inspection laws, and 14 ollicially in spect the bakery shops, "Forty-six states have enacted me chanics lien laws to protect the wages of the workers.

The bill proposes to establish industrial boards to consist of members representing the employers, employes and the genersl public, each board to represent a given industry. The duty of these boards shall be to fix minimum rates of wage for women and children. It is proposed that the rates of wages shall not be fixed arbitrarily, but shall be estab lishrd to safeguard in a reasonable de gree the health and general welfare of women and minor workers.
