Us1 Something By FRANK O. LOWDEN, ff'Jft -.-SWi. I We know that commodity will be long produced-below the cost of production, and therefore it ought never beiecessary to market any farm commodity below such cost; for if that commodity can be stored and held, the world will have to pay the cost some day. - trhese' problems have been met and solved, in a large measure, in Holland and Denmark and among the fruit growersuof California, by the organization . of farmer's co-operative societies. These societies do not attempt arbitrarily to fix prices. They do study the probable demand and attempt to adjust production to meet that demand. f , Instead of throwing the entire season's crop upon the market within a few short weeks, they provide for orderly marketing of their products. The tendency of this id to stabilize the market. And stabilizing the mar ket of any product is in' the end best for the consumer and the producer. Jt is never a good thing for anyone when any useful commodity is sold for less than the cost, for binder the inexorable laws of economics pur tailed production will-follow until prices abnormally high are the,result. Any commodity that is produced profitably year after year will in a long' series of years be produced more cheaply than where there are' violent 'fluctuations;' ;;" -;; " ; .

' -V.' ,: S;- Dismembering of European Empire That Was founded on Exploitation v By A. DEMANGEON, in "America". , .'Formerly the unity of the ,earth. was realized upon a European plan. New plans are roughly in the making. Certain parts of the earth will unite upon an American plah ; others upon a Japanese plan. ' There wU be no longer unity, but a plurality of influencesi It is the dismembering of th.3 European empire-,, of that empire that was founded upon exploita tion. ' y:-CX:' , , .:, 'V ;::'' , ..'l , After the great discoveries the world became Europeanized ; under the influence of jfounger peoples and continents progressing,' it tends to become regionalized, A new classification of the t earth, with Europe no longer leading alone, is in the making. It is a shift of equilibrium. - Is Europe's reign at an end ? Must it be aid that she "will become what she is in reality a little cape of the continent of Asia?" For that it would be necessary for her to deteriorate to the point where she counted only m proportion to her area. Uut greatness. This greatness is based, state of civilization,1 on i their mental naiure; it is a matter more of quality The American , Woman of the1 Old Stock Shows a Superior Head in Size V By DR. ALES HRDLICKA, The main characteristics of the old Americans are, -first of all, a tall stature. ; They t are, if we disregard a few small groups, he tallest of whites, averaging five feet eight inches in the men and five feet four inches in the women.' This superiority is in part a distinctly American acquisi tion. yyyy'X ' ! ' ; ; " They are mostly relatively "spare" tendency to overweight later on. In this connection there appears one serious feature many of the younger. women are behind their due stand ard. .Their, chest, their muscles, are relatively not as well developed as are' those of the men.' Thef merlin the average, are in every way a fine lot. But the American woman shows a superior head in size. The, size of her head is somewhat above what it usually is in relation to the average head of the male, and it is also perceptibly above that indicated by her stature. As the size'of head means a corresponding size of brain, we have here a highly favorable condition. ' , X A Serious Condition: 1 Outstripped the By W. M. FLINDERS PETRIE, in Yale Review. A very serious condition of the last century has been that knowledge has outstripped the moral sense. The greatly increased powers over na ture have not been used ; with corresponding growths of control and sense of responsibility. The gains of mechanics and of chemistry, of .movement in air and in water, have been most actively developed for destruction. In general, the cinema has been exploited rather to degrade; our ideas than to confer any real benefit. The fight use of our opportunities has been dwarfed by their wrong ii.se. ' ' ' ' ' - he questions which arise from the fact that knowledge is growing faster than, the moral sense, arid of how to use knowledge, are almost in soluble. Yet they, threaten all civilization. ' The idea of a Union of scientific workers dictating how their discov eries are to be used, or agreeing to conceal dangerous knowledge, is quite miue. vr.avevtr van ue useu ior uesirucuon win oe so usea Dy tne least scrupulous power and, that will set the standard to the other powers by heer necessity. . " ', , . ' V; ion That Cannot Teach About Farming Former Governor of Illinois. The farmer believes in the value 0 what he pro duces and knows that itvis indispensable to the world if civilization is to go on. When he sees that the total value of an unusually large crop is less in the markets of the world than the value of a small crop, he knows that something is wrong in our methods of distribution. He does not nesd to be familiar with higher mathe matics to feel sure that 12,000,000 bales of cotton ought to be worth more than 6,000,000 bales; for each of the 12,000,000 bales will be genuinely serviceable sooner or later in clothing the world. , ll i space is not the measure of a people a also on the number of men, on their progress, on their ability, to dominate than' of quantity.

BECOMES KILLER OF STOCK Government Hunters Have Orders Not to Mo.lest Black Bears Unless They 1 Kill Live Stock Then They , Are Doomed. X Washington. When Daddy went a- hunting, according to an old nursery story, the best he could do was to get a rabbit skin to wrap the Baby Bunt ing in, but a government hunter went a-hunting the other day and got a bear skin big enough to wrap the au tomobile in and it was a seven-passenger touring car, too, that the bear skin made a top for. It happened in Arizona on the res ervation of the Moqui Indians. This 900-pound brute, foresaking the whole some habits of the ordinary black bear, turned cattle killer and stirred ug anew all the black bear superstitions that the Indians ever had. When he wanted a steer for dinner or a calf! for breakfast, he went out and got, it, and there was no Indian hanging around to Ctry scat or shy a rock. Use Fox Terriers. ,.: Then the government hunters those wizards of the wilds that the bureau of biological survey of the United States Department of Agriculture em ploys to protect the nation's live-stock interests V from predatory animals- went on the job. They have all sorts of aids, those hunters guns, traps, poison but this time they took-alohg a pack of wire-haired fox terriers. Fox terriers cannot kill a bear, but -Wellington could not defeat Na poleon. All he could do was to hold him till reinforcements , came. And this pack of terriers ., did as well as Wellington. They ' got on the track : of the bear in-the snow, near the scene of hig latest steer-killing operation, and "trailed him to the place where he was getting ' ready to ' "hole .up" for the winter.

The dogs blocked him in 900 pounds of bear, equal .to about 40 dogs. in .weight and held him there for an hour. i , '" ; ; Had Close Call. Finally, tbe" bear made a dash for liberty but Blucher had arrived. In fact, half of him hdd arrived too early. One of .the hunters there were five , of them on the . hunt and two had come up jstth the dogs- had the te merity to come very close to the mouth of the den Jjust before Bruin made his grand t; rush. When the .whirlwind broke, bear and dogs in a mighty mix-up, the big brute was almost on top of the hunter before- he could move, and his gun was useless. The other hunter,' standing to. one side, got in a shot and dropped , the bear only four feet from the man he had charged. - ' The bear fell without a struggle andi rolled down the hill with all the ter riers hanging on. J , This was the first black -bear killed by government hunters In that region for a long time. They have orders from the biological survey not to mo lest the black bear unless heA be comes a stock., killer.-1- Indeed, it Is the universal policy - of the government hunters to leave the " general run of wild animals alone and. go after the' outlaws that are destroying property.

"One moment, please," the newcomer replied. Whereupon, he rolled up one trouser leg, dis closing a wooden 'leg, opened a trapdoor therein, and took out a roll of bills containing $1,000, handed over $25, and , restored the balance to its, hiding place. Schetzer paid the 70 cents when arraigned in court. SCOTCH MARRIAGE IS LEGAL Man's Attempt to Repdiate Wife Thirty Years Is Balked by Edinburgh Court. of London.

MAKES MOVIES REAL Invention of California Girl Prom ises Big Improvement. Through. Series of Silver Screens Characters Are Made to Appear as Actual Humans Moving. San Francisco. Ever since the cinema industry became an industry, persons with mechanical turn of mind have developed this and that kind of invention calculated to "humanize" the film character. " There was the "picture that' talks, in which a phonographic record was synchronized with the speed of projec tion. It never came into popular favor. It has remained for a Los Angeles girl to provide an invention that haar promise of actual , merit. 5 , The invention is that of Mary Bruce, twenty-one-year-old girl, who lives with her mother at 1828 S. Vermont avenue. By means of a series of silver mesh screens, which have been tested out and found practicable, Mary is able to "absorb" the usual projection. -; The result is that characters on the screen appear in their . true shadow gradation, and the appearance to the observer is that of actual humans moving-: - V" ; V- A ' ,'' The full body of the actor or actress is visible to the , eye. The "flat" ap pearance of them has' been overcome. The series of silver mesh screens are mounted in varying sizes and may. be erected in front of any ordinary pro jection screen. They -take up very small space In front of the screen. ; 'V A local picture house will install the invention with a' view to proving or disproving its merit. y SUED FOR MASTERPIECE "I would cut that painting by Ilja Repin .to pieces before I would be in veigled into surrendering it for -such a song. as $10,000 would-be.
