Strange tilings happen In the Jungles. Carveth Wells, explorer and lecturer, tells about the hornbills, long-tailed birds so big they often measure live feet from tail tip to beak. In Malay jungles Wells saw the male hornblll during the mating season drive the female Into a hollow tree, then wall up the opening with mud. This protects Mamma Hornbill against enemies. She stays in her Jail until egg*’, dre laid and hatched. Then pa lets her out. Meantime he has fed her through a small opening left in the mud. He gathers the food by using his saw-toothed beak to cut fruits and flowers from their stalks. Maybe that’s where man originally got his idea for the saw, now used to cut boards. Not necessary to go as far as Ma laysia. In Canada, when timber wolves mate, Mrs. Wolf hunts a cavern with a roof that slopes downward to meet the floor in a V-shape. She pushes her young far back in the V. This Is to keep Pa Wolf from eating his family. Mother Wolf can get at the babies easily, with her small body. Pa Wolf, having a larger body, cannot wedge himself in far enough to reach them. Wise nature that makes Mother Wolf smaller than pa. Wise Mother Wolf that knows, in advance, her husband’s appetite and how to ba file it. Seals swim north to rookeries or breeding grounds. The male seals go first, house hunting. After they have located good homes. n«ar plentiful food supply, messengers swim back to summon the cow seals. In the baby ward of a hospital you see infants, each in his own b6d, all very orderly. Mother Bee does the Kame, builds an apartment house of cells with wax walls. In each cell une egg Is laid and one individual raised. Wasps have the same system, manufacturing In their bodies the pa per with which they make the cells. Ants build their nurseries in the earth or rotted trees, with many bedrooms, also corridors through which Mother Ant dashes about, peering Into each room to see that baby is O. K., then on to the next. You cannot explain these peculiar things In nature, any more than you can explain why a male peacock al ways has four wives, never more, nev er less. All forms of life seem to re volve around the function of having children. Considering the Intricacies and far-sightedness of what we call nature, It Is bewildering how any man can fail to believe that a Supreme In telligence is behind It all.

Enigma to Neighbors * ——— Richest Man Rarely Seen in Tar rytown and is Guarded From All Questioners. GIVES CAMERAMEN A CHANCE Recently He Let Photographers Shoot Him to Heart’s Content, but Re porters Still Are Barred— Stories About Dimes. Tarrytown, N. Y. —Is John D. Rocke feller, passing the Indian summer of his life on his vast estate in the Po cantico hills, at last letting down the barriers he has always raised against photographers and reporters? This is a question which has been interesting the newspaper profession ever since the world’s richest man, on a recent Sunday, permitted camera men to snap him to their heart’s con tent after they had consented to fol low him into church for service. Mr. Rockefeller, who bears the repu tation of being one of the most cam era-shy men In America, may be be coming more lenient In his attitude toward photographers, but as yet he has given no indication of taking re porters into his confidence. An effort to Interview Mr. Rocke feller on the recent occasion of his eighty-fourth birthday anniversary— made, as usual, through a third party representing the household —brought the response “Impossible.’’ As no re porters as yet have succeeded in storming the well-guarded gates of the Rockefeller home, the modern Croesus goes uninterviewed. Enigma to Fellow Townsmen. Even to his townsmen the little man, slight of frame, who appears in mid-summer in leather waistcoat, over coat and muffler, is very much of an enigma. Tarrytown points out to each visi tor the home of John D. Rockefeller, urges tWe visitor to go up and see where Rockefeller lives, talks con stantly about Rockefeller —but surely sees him itself. Very seldom do Tarrytowners get Inside the gates which guard the big home back in tlie hills. Once in a while they see John D. come down town and sit in his machine while a chauffeur goes Into a bank or a store —but Tarrytown almost never talks to its richest citizen. He comes and goes —there is excitement while he is downtown, and discussion afterward. And that is all of Tarrytown’s claim on Its most famous citizen. Ever since the oil king celebrated his eigth-fourth anniversary Tarry town has been seething over the ques tion of who is its oldest citizen. There Is no question as to the most famous. An ancient who sits in front of the big hardware store just around the corner from the station concedes first place to John D. The ancient admits he is only eighty-three. But an Italian has asserted his grandfather is eighty eight, and there Is a fanner who Jays claim to ninety. Still, even in the STRIKE COST IS VERY HEAVY 1 Loss to Labor in 1921, Due to Disputes, Was $132,000,000. Survey Indicates 10,000,000 Man Hours Loet Dally in Disturbance— Building Trades Lead, With Printers Second. New York. —The loss of time due to strikes In the present year will un doubtedly exceed that of last year, ac cording to figures compiled by the Na tional Industrial Conference Boai*d, 10 East Thirty-ninth street. The board estimates that at present 1,250,000 workers are Idle because of strikes in various industries, entailing a direct loss of approximately 10,000,000 man hours of work each day. There were 2,207 strikes and lock outs in Hie United States In 1021. says the board report, or less than any of the live preced’ng years. The number .if strikes brought to the attention of ihe bureau of labor statistics in 1010 face of odds Tarrytown stands loyally behind Its prominent citizen and an nounces to the world that its oldest 1 citizen today is none other than the man who made oil famous. But the town maintains that Mr. Rockefeller Is still a youngster in spirit. “Any man who plays golf as fre quently as he does,’’ began one citi zen, when he was interrupted with n question as to whether John D’s. pri vate links were regular size. “Certainly, but John D. goes around slowly,” replied the citizen, but an other Tarrytowner broke in with a denial. “It is not. It is only about four holes of a normal course. And John D. takes three hours to make two of ’em.” Last but not least. In Tarrytown’s viewpoint toward its leading citizen is the tradition of the dimes, the day of days for the boys and girls. Spasmod ically John D. Rockefeller gives 10- cent pieces away to children. How did it start? Stories About Dimes. Three stories are current: Number I—Three1 —Three boys, many years ago, walked up the hill, climbed the stone wall, went up to the porch and saw Mr. Rockefeller. They asked him for a dime apiece—and got It. Since then, it is said, the oil magnate has held his yearly party. Number 2 —A boy was standing UNITED STATES GETS STOLEN CARS 2,120 Automobiles Recovered by Uncle Sam’s Theft Squad. Burns Men Get Conviction of 1,113 Under Dyer Automobile Law—Amer ican Automobile Association Helps Federal Officers. Washington.—Since the passage of tpe Dyer ami-theft automobile law in October, 1919, the bureau of investiga tion, Department of Justice, has re covered 2,120 automobiles, worth at a fair second-hand valuation $2,567,208, according to figures for the American Automobile association. The department has investigated 2,391 cases, which involved 4,385 per sons. There were 2,773 persons ar rested, of whom 1,533 were indicted and 1,113 convicted. These convicted persons received sentences amount ing In the aggregate to 2,350 yea A 6 months 11 days, and paid fines of $41,140. The American Automobile associa tion took an active part in supporting the Dyer anti-theft bill, which was prepared by Representative L. C. Dyer of Missouri, who is an active member of the Automobile Club of Missouri, and who was assisted in ob taining facts necessary for the prep aration of this measure by the Auto mobile Club of Missouri and the A. A. A. Credit for the enforcement of the law is due largely to William « was 3,789; in 1917, 4,450; In 1918, 3,353; In 1919, 3,577, and in 1920, 3,25-1. The number of persons involved In 1,587 of the strikes and 95 of the lock outs reported in 1921 was 1,085,653. The total duration of 1,409 of the strikes and 70 of the lockouts last year was 00,105 days. The average duration of the ctrikes in 1921 was 00 days. Estimating the average wage of the workers in these strikes and lockouts at $2 a day, the total loss of wages alone due to this number of labor disputes in 1921 would be about $132,000,000. Two and a half times as many strikes occurred In the first half of the years as In the last half, says the re port. the largest being that of the ma rine workers in May, Involving about 140,000 strikers and embracing all the principal ports of the United States.

He took him into the house, gave him a dime and sent him home. And the 10-cent party sprang from that. Whatever the cause, “dime day’’ has become to the youth of Tarrytown a ' day apart, ranking with Christmas | and the Fourth of July. * J. Burns, head of the bureau of in vestigation. The outstanding feature of the Dyer law is that it places interstate trans portation of stolen motor vehicles un der federal law and makes such an action punishable in federal courts. Formerly hands of unscrupulous men had maintained assembling factories nr various points and were able to so aher it stolen car as to make it prac tically unrecognizable to the original owner Officials of the A. A. A. are work ing with federal officials and heads of other organizations to induce motor car manufacturers to mark permanent ly all automobiles so as to make iden tification more easy. NEW U. S. CURB ON NARCOTICS "Dope Fiend,’" Path I, Made Much Harder by Safeguards on Blanks. Washington, D.

As usual, the board states, New York city led among cities with 180 strikes and lockouts, followed by Chicago with 89, Philadel phia with 49 and Boston with 43. “Considered by industry groups, the building trades in 1921 led all others with 568 strikes and lockouts,” the re port says. “Printing and publishing came second with 478 such disturb ances, the clothing industry was third with 202, and the metal trades were fourth with 188. In 1920 also the building trades led with a total of 511 strikes and lockouts, while in 1919. 1918. 1917 and 1916 that doubtful dis tinction belonged to the metal trades with totals of £Bl, 411, 515 and respectively. “In the last three years an increas ingly large proportion of strikes and lockouts have been settled in favor of the employers, while In the preceding three years, when the war was still in progress, the reverse was true, This may be said to reflect the declining power of the labor organizations in the yearn following the war.” 6Z>e HOOVER SKZ .3 Best Vacuum Cleaner II on E7re MarKet SKOSHCHE ELECTRIC LIGHT AND POWER CO.
