Des Moines, Feb. 8. representatives in the Iowa legislature vote their opin ions on rollcall now with their fingers. No longer does the clerk call the roll and the member vote with hia lungs. One result of the change is a saving of 15 minutes to half an hour in tak ing a roll call vote. When a question is put to a vote ev ery representative may vote at the same time. It is difficult for any to wait and see what someone else will do and let his vote follow. Since the session two years ago an electrical voting device has been in stalled in the House, and already has been used. On each member's dek is a little device to which he earriet a key. No two keys are alike. There are three small light to show him how he is voting. When the question is put the legislator inserts the key, and then manipulates the device. What he does is not only recorded for his own bene fit by the light on his desk, but shows , t ,L. i on a unara aoove me srivri n, The members all are named on the board. Opposite the name are three lights and a slot. If hi vote is "aye" a red light shows, and a "Y" appears in the slot. A blue light shows and the letter "N" for a negative vote.

FEW EARTHQUAKES OCCUR IXLAM) Made by the makers of Jiffy-Jell Distressed Steamers Put in There At the Rate of One a Week. St. Johns, N. F., Feb. . This port ha been a haven of refuge for more lame duck among trans-Atlantic ship ping in the past year than ever be fore. Distressed steamers averaged one for each week of the whole year, with a total of ni. Of these 27 were Ameri can, ix British, three Ihitch, 13 Nor wegian, one Belgian and two Swedish. The fact that American boats com prised more than half the total number was attributed by marine observers here to defects in construction and im proper handling. There hs not been a day for the past year than an Amer ican Vteamer h not been under repair here and at some periods as many as three or four were in port, mainly with engines out of order. In sunc cases these ships after having effected re pair and proceeding to s a have had to return for further attention because the engines again gave out shortly alt er tem was put on them. The trsmrr Ifcdcn, a steel vessel, towed here recently from mid-ocean, alter hating lost her propeller, had suf fered the ame mishap on her previous voyage-. Then she made the run to America, reloaded and started for K.ng land again, but off this ct last Mo ler lost her rudder, the whole struc ture dropping off as the result of a flaw in the steel.

EXGLIS1I GIRL CUT OFF II AIR FOR GOVERXMEHT In Her Patriotism She Went to Great Extreme to Help Out Financial Situation of Govern ment. Ix-ndon, Feb. .-- An Knglili girl has just set. an example of patriotism to her sisters of this or other com.trics by cutting off and selling her hinr and giving the proceeds to the government to help relieve its hmincuil situation. The girl's name has not been made public. Her letter announcing her sacrmee as received at a government office reads: "To help, even though in a very small way. the country in 4 he present financial difficulties, I have ha. I my hair cut off and have sold it. W.i'.h the money thus obtained 1 have lmught war savings certificates which I have destroyed. The money is thus a direct gift to the country. If this could !c published, perhaps many other girls would do as I have done and thousands of people would be encouraged to give up something that would benefit the country financially." The letter was published, but emu lators of the writer' example have n t been heard. A reason may be found in a recent decree of hairdressers that "bobbed'' locks are no longer fashionable.

Much of the horror of earthquakes in the minds of average persons is due to ignoram of their cause. While know ing what causes earthquakes will not nrevenf the nlivsical dangers which thev effect, persons are naturally less terrified when the element of mystery is removed. "All inimirtant earthquakes are due to steam pressure accumulating within i or just under the earth's crust, which j must have relief, whether by volcanic! eruption, uplifting of mountain chain parallel to fue sea, or the formation ami movements of faults in the earths crust," u rites Prof. Thomas J. J. See in the Americana. "The earth has a temperature of some 2.000 degrees Fahrenheit at a depth of less than twenty miles and the leakage of the earth's crust is well known. But in connection with the penetration of water we may recall the porosity of all rocks and even metals, t'ndcr sufficient pressure water has been forced through solid layers of gold, sil ver, lead, iron and steel, and under a pressure of 4.IKKI atmospheres Amaiiat toreed mercury through three inches of solid steel." The oceans are d"ep enough to give a pres-ure of about one thousand atmospheres on their liot toms, and a the water penetrates downward the pressure steadily in creases. "A Sir Archibald Cieikie justlv re marks. I):iubree's exeriments bowed that owing to capillarity water may permeate rocks again-t a hi'.'h counter pressure of steam on the further side, and thfit so long n water is supplied whether bv minute fissures or through pores of the rocks, it may tinder pres sure of its own superineumlient column, make its way to highly heated regions. It nisv thus increase the steam pres sure within until it is sufficient to raie lava in the vent of a vohano or produce earthquakes by the movement of the crust along an adjacent fault. "It has been fund bv experiment that gases are rapidly borlied in hot steel and other metars. and the rapid absorp tion of water in mi Ken rin k is proved by the vast clouds of steam arising from lava as it pours from a volcano. The vapors which are thus freely emit ted are as resdily absorbed. Hence it follows tht as water permeates down ward into the earth it finally gets hot enough to become steam in spite of the pressure, and tends to diffuse among the molten rwks below. But it can not descend to great depths without Iw-coming superheated and Jiaving it explosive power enormously increase; and the result is that it u spread in a laver just under the crust and finally brinirs on an earthquake. "Since volcanoes occur only in the sea. on inlands an. I alonir the shores of continent, but alwavs die out inland, while all the apor they emit i steam, except one part in a thonsand. which is of secondary character, made un of by products due to moisture and high temperature, it follows that team i he sole original cause of volcanic ac tivitr. It hs long leen observed that earthquakes in a region near an active volcano ccae when tne steam escapes, snd therefore imprisoned fcteam was the ole cause of previous shocks.

MOUTH The More Shortening the Richer the Cake9 A Common Mis understanding in Cooking r Equal to Butter in richness, but you use lh to Vz less Mazola, and why fault with VNE great V-' cooks is to use too many much shortening in their cakes and pas tries. This very often causes cakes to become heavy and indigestible, and pie crusts soggy and pasty. All animal fats have this ten dency. They contain more or less water. This prevents the heat from breaking up the starch granules properly. Mazola is'free from all moisture, as found in butter, lard and ordin ary cooking fats. It is absolutely Ioo pure vegetable fat. Being already a fluid it does not have to be melted. It makes the tedious and timewasting "creaming in" process easier which is so an noying when you ute lard and other old fashioned compounds. Perfect Pie Crust Easily Made You can make the most delicious piecrust with Mazola crisp, brown and flaky. Vou will want to eat every last morsel of it. Cakes, bread and biscuits arc light and wholesome, for the starch granules are thoroughly broken up. This is owe reason that cakes and pies, cooked with Mazola, are bet ter digested than when cooked in animal fats or compounds. NATIONAL STARCH CO.
