Five Strong Reasons for Fall
1. 1 In the fall, the surface is thoroughly dry. During the spring a
anrface which needs repainting is sore to contain moisture and damp-

dried out.
. - - 2. When the wood is dry, it absorbs more of the paint. The paint
penetrates deeper into the wood, therefore get firmer hold on it, giv
ing the paint coating greater tenacity or holding qualities.
3. Paint cannot be applied as successfully in damp, cloudy or un.
settled weather as in warm, sunny weathr, in the fall . the weather is
more settled and uniform and is warmer, therefore it is an excellent tiror
for painting. . ' "
4. A house needs its protecting coat of paint more in the winter
months than at any other time. A houv. in need of repainting should
never be allowed to go over the winter without this protection.
8. It is easier to keep moisture awd dampness ont by applying a
'coat of paint when the surface is dfy, than It is to get moisture or damp
Hess oat of the wood when you want to apply paint. " -

A. It U an imposing structure of
granite on Cemetery hill, Gettysburg,
and was erected In honor of the Un
ion soldiers who gave their lives for

the center of the enclosure, which
contains the bodies of 3,500 soldiers,
representing eighteen 'northern
states. The monument bears upon
its base the famous words of Presi
dent Lincoln, delivered at the con
secration of the cemetery in Novem
ber, 1863.
W. C.s J. Is there a leaning tower
In Bologna,- Italy and how does It
compare with the one at Pisa?
A. There are several of them.
The torre Asinelll, built in 1109,- is
323 feet high and four feet out of
the perpendicular. The torre Garl
senda, built in 1110, 157 feet high,
but probably once much higher, - is
ten feet out of plumb. The campa
nile at Pisa, built in 1174. is 179
feet high with an overhang of. 13
feet. The question whether the In
clination was accidental or through
design in many of the leaning tow
ers which exist has never been au
thoritatively settled. -
W. J. C. How high was the tow
er of Babel at the time of the confu
sion of tongues?
A. The plan (Genesis xl:4) call
ed for "a tower whose top may 'reach
unto heaven." - Somewhat short of
this extreme altitude the confusion of
tongues came upon them and the
work remained unfinished. The only
basis for an estimate of the height
when the work was stopped lies in
the expression in verse c, "this they
began to do." Biblical students hold
that It is quite uncertain whether the
building-ever advanced above Its
foundation. A similar tradition as to
a tower, where speech was confound
ed has been found among other peo
ples of the Babylonian plain.
