THE DEVIL'S TOWER THIS peculiar freak of uuture which has become one of Uncle Sum's National Monuinentn, Is located near Sundance Id northeastern Wyo ming. It Is a gigantic rock, 600 feet high, probably 00 feet In diameter at the top and a mile around at the base. Rising sheer from the level plain, It Is visible In some directions for almost a hundred miles. Undoubtedly this tower wus useful to primitive races as well us to eiirly pioneers as a lundmurU. Tls thought that during the subsequent Indian wurs members o( the Sioux unci Crow tribes directed their marches by the uld of fires and other signals fliiHhcd from tills ever-visible tower. As one approaches this monstrous rock, his amazement and awe In creases, because it scums Incredible that uny force of Nature could huve carved this solitary .monument. To climb to the top would 'seem an Impossibility, yet It Is said that a number of years ago a man and a womun accomplished this feat suc cessfully. Now that the war Is behind us and Uncle Sam has more time to devote to home matters, It seems not unlikely that he mny deem It advisable to send an expedition to the top of his new possession and cause a series ol stairways to be constructed for the accommodation and convenience of venturesome tourists bent dn getting acquainted with their own country.

THE LINCOLN MEMORIAL THOSE who have visited foreign lands say thut no other similar structure compares favorably, in either size, beauty or locution, with the grcut, simple uiid udmlrably-sltiiated monu ment eriv:ed by the people of Amer ica, In tin. iiipitul of the nation, as a fitting tribute to the memory of the kindness and the greatness of our Lincoln. Near the White House and the Washington Monument, and between the Capitol building nnd the National cemetery, this memorial Is destined to become one of the most-visited of all the public buildings of the world. The building Is 202 feet long, 1".-' feet wide and surrounded by a row of marble columns, several feet In di ameter nt the base and 44 feet high. In the center of the interior is a coloRsiii stntue of Lincoln, In a seated position. Including the base, It Is 30 feet high. It weighs 175 tons.

WHERE WASHINGTON WORSHIPED HISTORY shows that .the plot of ground on which stands Christ church, In the quulnt, old-fushloned town of Alexandria, Virginia, first settled about 1005, was acquired In 1704 for the sum of one penny. Around this sacred relic of by-gone days perhaps revolves more patriotic sentiment than that which surrounds any other of the many old und his toric churches In this uatlon. An Iron fence, set upon an ancient brick wall, encloses a grassy plot which is dotted with many quaint grave stones and also contains the church itsolf.. Although certain interior changes and renewals necessarily have been made, the general appearance of the church Is practically the same as In the days of old. The same chancel rail, communion table, reading desk and choirs and brass candle holders are In use, while among the relics In the vestry may be seen the first bible used made In Scotland In 1770, and the long-handled purses In which the otTerlngs of the parishioners were de posited. It was to this church, both before and after the revolution as well as after retiring fronj the presidency, that General George Washington came from Mount Vernon, In his "conch and four", to worship. The pew occupied by the Washington family, as well as the one used by -General Robert E. Lee, are maintained In exactly the same condition as when used by them, WONDERS Or AMERICA By T.T.MAXEY 0, western Newspaper UnloiC UNCLE SAM'S FUMIGATING VATS SO RAPIDLY does the world move now-a-days, so numerous and va ried are the wonders which are irii nv ihe Ingenuity of our ex perts in various lines and so quietly 1 the work CTIed U Jeojienuy Happens fliat the general 'public Isiflfws but little- of the marvels that are among us. . For Instance, down on the Texas border at Laredo, to be exact the United States Department of Agricul ture operates a fumigating plant or vat which Is sufficiently large to ac commodate a train of fifteen freight cars at one time. Freight cars arriving In the States from Old Mexico are Infected with live, pink bollworm a pest which Weds and devours the uurlpened pods of the cotton plant. If permitted to enter and scatter In this country, It would, provided It gained much head way, create losses running Into the millions of dollars annually. To prevent this loss and preserve the crop, therefore, such cars are un ceremoniously shunted Into these vats and the unwelcome bollworms aboard accorded a knock-out reception. This plant resembles a long, brick shed. After the cars are received, the doors are closed and the plant Is flooded with a gas, generated on the spot, the fumes of which are sure death to bollworms. At the end of an hour or more, the gas is drawn off, the cars removed and sent on their way nnd the plant is ready for the next Incoming train. . Other similar, but smaller, plant are located at various coast points. WONDERS Or AMERICA By T.T.MAXEY , Western Newspaper Union, THE PLYMOUTH ROCK WHEN the Pilgrim Fathers landed from the Mayflower at Plymouth, Massachusetts, they stepped out upon a boulder which has become famous as the Plymouth Rock. Tills rock is said to weigh seven tons, possess a greenish hue, to be very hard and Its surface capable of taking a high polish. Oval In shape and having a flat top, It offered a made-to-order landing place for the forefathers. Scientists declare that it was undoubtedly curried by a glacier, from some strange and distant land. Like most movable things of pecul iar historic value, a loving public has been wont to disturb tills valued relic and change Its location. In 1774, while plans were under way to move the rock to the town square, it was discovered that the action of the ele ments hud separated the upper and lower portions. Nevertheless, the top portion was moved. In 183460 years later It was again moved, this time to a locution In front of Pilgrim Hull and Inclosed with nn Iron fence. Here It remained for forty-six years. Then It was decided that tlie rock should he returned to Its original location. Accordingly, after a separation of more than one hundred years, the up per portion of the rock was carefully placed over the lower portion, where It now reposes under an ornate can opy. Here, this treasured shrine, to which come visitors from every clime, shall undoubtedly remain for all time, look ing much the same as when its side was first grazed' by the good ship Mayflower.

(g, Western Newspaper HOME OF WASHINGTON ON THE peaceful and picturesque shore of the River Potomac, soma sixteen miles south of our national capital, stands Mount Vernon the home of The Fa'ther of His Country. It was so named In honor of Ad miral Vernon of the British navy and It-Is to the efforts of the Mount Ver non Ladles' association of the Union that the citizens of America are in debted for the preservation of this National shrine. Occupying a site of great charm, commanding a sweeping view of broad river and pleasing landscape, Is this grand old mansion to which the young officer came to live shortly after his marriage and to which he retired from the presidency, to spend his days in a manner befitting one of his rank, means and time, and where he died In 1700. The structure was built in 1743 and contnins many of the original furnishings and relics of the family. Clustered about it are the barn, coach house, spinning house, meat house, ice house, wash house, kitchen and other outbuildings. Nearby Is a remarkable, old-fashioned garden, with quaint, oddly-designed spaces set off by box hedges, said to be 150 years old. In this garden Is a coffee tree said to have been planted in 1824 by General Lafuyette and cuttings from a willow tree which it is claimed were brought from the grave of the great Napoleon at St. Helena. Enclosed in two marble sarcophagi, In a small and simple structure within the grounds, rest the remains of Gen eral George Washington and his con sort Martha.
