Bora In Brooklyn. Oddie was shunted westward after being born at Brooklyn. N. Y., Octo- oer Z4, 1.874), and spending- his early boyhood, at East O ranee. N. J. He roughed It on a ranch in' Nebraska from IB to -19 and then sought a bus iness career in New "Fork City. In 1888 he went to Nevada to identify Jiimself with the extensive Stokes (mining1 interests there, hut he worked f himself out of a iob by exposing- lr-f-reg-ularities Ui connection with them, taod he them hit the trail into an al Jmost inaccessible, sparsely inhabited, (mountainous region of the southern ipart of rb State. i- Oddie finally drifted south into vNye Couatty, in the region, of old Be! iinoiyt, tihe former grandeur of iwhlch -bad departed, and took up mining ron his own account. At that tirne. Hn 1899, the-entire population of the I county did not ewed 200 souls, most tot whom were engaged in raising livestock. He took up some claims nd sank a shaft, working alone, with I such tools as he could gather. The Vshaft was an incline, 70 feat deep, j equipped with a windlass. The em Ibryo miner would climb down the 'ladder, fill his bucket, climb out ana f&oist ft to the surface. Nothing' much of a material na ture resulted, from these operations The streak of ore was email and the work came to an abrupt end when a "raise" broke ; through to the sur- lace. In akin j? the end of the bonan ia" But while engaged in this task Llhe became acquainted with a man, I Jim Butler, who was to play an ira frportant part in his life. Butler had 'been District Attorney -a jab with little to do and . less pay, in which Oddie succeeded him -a. rancher in 'a small way, and a prospector of the i'old school with that gift that made ithe old-timers famous in itheir day. One day Butler handed Oddie sev feral samples from a prospect he had t found and told -him that the forma Stian looked good ,and that if the fsaxnples ran anything- at all it would 'be, worth explaining. Butler had j taken some samples from the find to Klondyfce, a nearby camp, and i shown them to Wllse Brougher and f his partner, Higgs. who had an assay ! office there. Higgs threw them aside t as not being worth an assay. But- MOddie have the samples assayed.

Oddio sent him the as say certificate and urged him to make haste to Belmont and go with Oddie to the scene and make his lo cations. Butler's rancn was on a Star Route post offioe. hnt he made infrequent trips to ' the mail box down on the road. The days rolled .by and merged into weeks, with no reply. Oddie greatly reared that some wanderlnar prospector would find the led and locate It, while waiting to hear from Butler. . Fi nally Hutler. unexcited by the as says, arrived with his wife in Bel mont and ithe two slipped away with camp equipment loaded upon a rick ety wagon In which they made their (0-mile journey. On Butler's return he took Wilse Brougher into the partnership also. The three men then Started for the scene of the dis-i covery where they put xrp their claim monuments and started to work. It was In November, the weather cold and blustery, their shelter the sky. They had no tent at the start, no stove and nothing but scrubby sage brush for fuel . There was no food for the horses, which were turned out to rustle the dry bunch grass and frequently strayed away. Water had to be hauled a distance of five miles. Oddie being the youngest of the trio fell heir to the extra jobs of ranging- the horses, hauling water and gathering fuel, besides doing- the heavy work of mining-; The outcrop yielded two tons of ore and then "pinched" out. The men then start ed to level off a place for a dindlass and in this work uncovered Ithe top of the Mizpah led pre. Initial Capital was $25. They hauled the ore first extract ed, one ton at a time, to Belmont, a long two-days 'trip .from where it was sent 90 miles by wagon to Aus tin, thence iby rail to a smelter on the Paciflce Coast. It took six weeks to get returns, but the check that came for $600 Cheered them in their task and suprlied the funds- for "grub." Their tater successes never produced a sum that looked aulte as big as that $600, which came on a. stormy day to their dingy camp, on a bleak hillside in a lonelv corner of the world. Xt was almost dusk of a winter day when Oddie reached camp with the money, blue wSth cold but warmed within by visions of the fu ture. DroDPinsr the reins to the erround, he let the tired horses standing and imparted the good news to his partners. The combined money investment of these three men In this enterprise was $25. This is proba.bly the world's record of bie returns from small in vestments. What followed is history. In the mysterious way that news spreads of a new strike in the desert reaohes, it quickly became known tthat a great discoverv had been made in Nevada. From everywhere came hardy spirits, eoverinsr the hillside with flapping tents and filling the air with the roar of dvnamite from early morn until darkness. Leases were let over a hundred of llhem ore teams came from mysterious sources, and the wealth of the Miz pah was sacked and sent to the smelters. Oddie was made business manager and kept the books for a hundred lease solit he money among freight haulers, lessees and me company and cave attention to a thousand details, includi railroad shipments to he smelters and attending to the marketing of ores, etc, all In an office th id r.r a piano box.

Oddie pronounces fnis as pure "bnnk." and says that Butler was a wondierflly sagacious -prospector with an almost uncanny instmct for fnd insr ore. He had noticed from afar indications of mineral on this range of hills years before and went there with the purpose of prospecting- the quality win a very aetimte and fixed objnct In view. Greatest Boom Since Oomstocfe. Oddie was opposed to selling the mine, which had attained bonanza proportions, but acquiesced in the wishes of his partners. He then turned his attention to the develop ment of the Belmont, an adjoining property, but remained as manager for the Tonopah Mining Company, the corporation to which the Mizpah was sold. H. C (Cal) Brougher and Oddie owned most of the locations that finally were taken over by the Tonopah Belmont Derolopment & alining Company, which Oddie financ ed in Philadelphia, the home of the new owners of the Mizpah mine. A great fault crosses the mountain be tween the two mines and some engi neers expressed the, belief that it "cut off" the ore. The Belmont sub sequently became the largest mine of the district. Tonopah gave birth to the greatest mining 'boom Nevada has had since the glorious days of the Comstock and has already .produced more than a hundred million dollars. From the' new Eldorado prospectors worked out in . every direction. Rich gold ore was found 25 miles to the south and GoMfleJd was given to the mining world with its rich treasure trove. Then came Hanna-pah, Silver Bow, "Reveille, Manhattan and a score of new camps. Oddie remained for.nve years as manager of the Tonopah Mining and the Belmont Develop ment and operated in Goldfieki and other camps where he had secured interests. He bought the Pine Creek ranch and introduced into Southern Nevada the first herd of white faced Hereford cattle. He ihas made a close study of agricultural and live stock matters. In 1910 he was nominated for gov ernor on the Republican ticket and elected, serving four years. This was about the stiffest fight he ever had and .was waged under difficulties that would have discouraged most men from making- the race. To begin with, he was pitted against an ex perienced and popular politician, in a state - :.at was normally Demo cratic Financial reverses had prac tically swept away his fortune. Un skilled in politics and with a poor organization, he went out and ap pealed to the voters and won. A Battler from Youth. There followed some lean years in Nevada. The stock boom which swept the country from the Atlantic to the Pacific and from Canada to Mexico had gone its way. The rich treasures of Goldfield were pretty well worked out after producing over a hundred million dollars. The price of silver was low and Tonopah and other silver camps suffered in consequence. But Oddie kept peg ging away prospecting and -developing prospects, his heart true to min ing, and he now feels, that his op timism is soon to toe rewarded. Probably the "most striking feature of Oddie's life has been the struggle against odds in he big undertakings. He studied law in New Tork at night for three years, while working as a clerk for $1 a week, battling sleep in the pursuit of knowledge.- He re ceived his degree and was admitted to the New York Bar. His first ex perience in big business there brough him into conflict wnth powerim real estate interests and his victory ln- sntr-ed StokM to send him to Nevada, where he stirred up a veritable hor nets' neat.

OF S TWO MILLION FEMALE RPLUS, SAYS NORTHGLIFFE New York, ; Aug. 6 Must two mil lion women remain forever stogie? In England today there is that number of "superfluous" women, the dearth of men occasioned, of course, by the great war. What is the best answer to Eng land's woman problem then? Lord Northclifte, famous British publisher, brings up the subject when a girl -viter visits ' him in search of an idea for a syndicate story. "Tell your chief to find out whafs to be done with two million superflu ous women we now have in England," he replias without an instant's hesita tion. "We have that many more women than men," he continues. "That should interest everybody. I'd like to have such a story myself." Far be it from - us to insist that young English ladies emigrate here and marry our extra male population, although there Is a sufficient number of men to provide husbands for all the women in this country and for the "superfluous" British girls, too. Census statistics for 1920 show there are now 107 men for every 100 women in the United States. Latest available figures on popula tion announce a surplus of 2,692, 288 males over females and a sur plus of males, ' over twenty-one, to exceed by 2,443,3-9'7 the number of females over the same age. Some of Solutions Offered. But there are various solutions of fered ns for England's problem by representative American women: Emigration to countries where men are still at large. t Women making of themselves such excellent matrimonial material as to lure men from other countries. Vicariously satisfying the maternal instinct by caring for the youth of the country, sons and daughters of women who have found husbands. And the belief that there is a mate for every one and not finding him woman is better off alone! Hailing the surplus of feminity in England as a great stronghold for the nation, Mrs. Olive Stott Gabriel, lawyer, does riot think England has a serious problem in this predomin ance of women. 'Big Asset, Says Mrs. Gabriel. Two million women in any coun try are an asset, not a liability," as serts Mrs. Gabriel. 'Women, are the equals of men in any capacity, politically, economical ly and constructively I refer to the re-organization of any country after a war. The trouble with the majority of men is that they look upon women not as human, beings, but as inferior bits of creation by means of which they may exploit themseves." "But what of the human side of the problem, the almost absolute cer tainty that these women can never marry?" Mrs. Gabriel was asked. "That's what I mean," she replied. ,rffin think of women only as hus band-hunters. Men trouble much more about what women want than women do. "Under modern conditions I think women marry to have the right sort of children, to bring them up with the best ideals. Women don't wed for meal tickets any more. Few women wish to marry unless they meet the right man. Yes, I am a great believer in the theory of getting the Tight one.' "I "believe there is a true mate ror every one of us, and women nowadays want him cr don't want to get mar ried at all." . . Mrs. Raymond Brown's Opinion. Mrs. Raymond Brown, prominent suffragette and managing director of the Woman Citizen, a suffrage organ, does not think the "eternal ma ternal" should be wasted Two million extra women! Mrs. Brown exclaimed. "England is rich indeed. . ... "Women, married or not, have the mother instinct. if th mntorfnal duality is not ex pended on her own children, woman may help her country an me mi "Economically, woman can earn her own living. She always has, in some way or other. "I think the two mUlion women could help the children of England. We can never have too much of the mother instinct, whether it is given to the family or to the country: Emigration to England's wide do minions mught solve the problem. Miss Helen P. McCormick, assistant district attorney of Kings county, holds this opinion. . . Miss McCormick for Emigration. "The first aspect of the question at present is the economic phase of it. After all, if women are provided means of support, the problem is not so dangerous. "The human side is not pre-eminent at -nroooTit it seems to me . "If women re well-provided for economically men could be easily in duced tn yn tr, Kngland and take them fnr -m-i-wAr- '"With all England's dominions, her outlying provinces, she is not devoid of destinations to which she may send, if they wish o go, her single women. "Dpt a commission be appointed. Let England aid her superfluous wom en to go to Canada, Australia and New Zealand. "Where there are enough men for the women, nature will take care of the human side of the problem. "Tti tho fainff iui ounufnna HiMit 'Britain, surely, there are lonely, help less men who would welcome- wives. It is also cheaper to support a wife than to hire a housekeeper. mere would be Little, 'overhead' expense connected with the expedition. Ihe Government should give ade quate attention to the problem of its women. ""England must never forzet what her women did in the great war. Sufficient thought should be given to these superfluous women. "Woman's value is realized now as never before. If a country denies ita women today it runs the risk of being ungrateful." Miss Scbeidernmnn's Question. But what Miss Rose Seheidermann head of the Women's Trade Union Deague, wanta:to know is: "Why does England .differentiate Women from men? Why ask what to do with two million women any more than what to do with two mil lion extra men? Would a country worry about its extra men? ' No! Then why worry about the women? Let the thing adjust itself." A hard situation, nevertheless, hard for the women themselves. - Every woman likeS to believe that home, husband and children will be her lot some time in life and likewise that, should she elect to live a life other than the domestic one she "could have married if she wanted to." Between the woman, who must b single and the one who chooses to b single there is a world of difference. Obviously this great number of women must be single not from choice, but from necessity, since poly gamy is a habit not in good standing in civilized countries today. Avoid that danger, Clothe Baby in Vanta garments. Some mother, who had just found out that what made Baby cry so was an unruly safety-pin, MUST have , devised the first Vanta garment. Eight then, she determined that never again would she let a pin cause pain to her baby ! ' So she set at work and the final result was the Vanta garment of today: something in which and on which there is neither a pm nor a button I Every Vanta garment is fastened by tapes; smooth strong tapes that do not twist and do not ravel. They hold each little article of dress firmly in place. Of equal valuethey give Baby freedom and allow little muscles free play and exercise, help Baby to grow up with strong square shoulders, don't squeeze Baby around the waist. Hospitals and nurses approve Vanta garments. Mother will approve them just as quick, once she sees them. Little vests of wooi-and-silk and of merino $1.75 and 95c.

The l.vrgest machinery exhibit in the worli will be housed in New York City. The building, which will also hold various other exhibits, contains more than 660,000 square feet of space. Machinery ranging from delicate" instruments, which record the thou sandth of a degree change in heat and which measure the varying weights of small sheets of paper to heavy shears that cut steel bars 5 x 6 inches in thickness, and ten-ton caterpillar tractors will be on display under one roof. Great cranes, strong enough to move a fair sized mountain, will be a feature of this all American exhi bition which will rival in size the famous exhibits of the Crystal Palace in London and the historic Centennial in Paris of three decades ago. Some idea of the size of the Central Mercantile Building at Sixth avenue, running from 18 th to 19 th streets. can be gathered from the fact that it would easily park rourteen Flatiron buildings. The building Is large enough to accomodate many exhib its. Already within its walls are exhibits of milk pastuerizing and ice cream machinery and a large display of oil and gas engines. The floor area is 160,000 square feet longer than the Woolworth building. The tallest building in the world, Eiffel Tower in Paris, has a floor space of 38,000 square feet, less thin one-half the area of a single floor in this structure. Xi. R. Duffleld, president of the Exhibition Company which is behind iha enternrise. recently called atten tion to the fact that New York sells more machinery than the combined markets of Europe. AMERICA IN POSITION TO SOLVE WORLD'S ILLS Columbus, Ohio, Aug. 6 Because it is only from profit on production that the' immense war debt can be paid production costs will remain high. This Is the belief expressed -by Col vin B- Brown, Washington, head of the .Department of Organization, United States Chamber of Commerce, in an address to a local audience. "If the selling price' sinks below the cost of production ho power on earth can hold it there, and after this period of reconstructon is passed we will go back on a sound basis, for the world needs our goods," said Mr. Brown. "Not a section of the country is selling up to its ability to produce," he declared, statlnn that there is no overproduction now beeause there is Insufficient food to feed the world un til the next harvest, nor enough cloth ing to garb the world properly. Asserting that this nation is in a po sition such as no other country ever has enjoyed for re-establishing the world's credit, he advocated extension of credit to European countries. .
