C. m ?t*?T *-*?V HP HAVE REALCHARM Old South Carolina Gfiiqches Wei) Worth Visit. Andrew1*, Built In 1702, One? Notable Aristocratic House of Worship ? Goose Creek Edific* Also Interesting. Tlie charm to some places Is that the changes to them come slowly, and this is the atmosphere that envelopes Charleston. S. C., a town of quaint old streets, imttfty churches, lovely old tries. ; j.d li:;rni-wr<mght iron doors and gates that lust opened to admit sub jects of a Hritish ting. One leaves all this behind and rides out over 12 niiles of the roughest of country roads under trees decorated whh long ghostlike strands of Span ish moss to enter a church whose doors sw.'ng open hut once a year. It Is St. Andrew's church, in ftt. Andrew's par ish. and it opens once annually because this was the condition stipulated in the original crown grant. St. Andrew's j church was buill In 1702. For a century j or more it was the^regular Sunday meeting place of rich and aristocratic Southerners who lived on adjoining plantations, and it is not difficult on a warm spring day to stand under the moss-hung trees near the church and visualise the past. The men and wom en dressed in ?;i.v silks and satins for church-going In those days, and they rode to service in grand style with a pair of handsome horses drawing a commodious carriage, with a negro s.lave on the box. and the negroes rid ing or walking behind. St. Andrew's not the only church that is opened fciit once a year. Goose Creek church, some ten miles away. mill imnr is i?</o, was msu. uum uuuci a crown grant uith the same provision. With the growth of the city, known then as "Charleston by the1 Sea," anil with better roads, the attendance nt the small parish churches diminished. When the last of these-pllmtutlons was reduced In grandeur and jivenlih by the Clril war, and- the sjaves were scattered all over the globe, those in whom was embodied the spirit of the past had gon.e to their fathers. . A love of tradition, a reverence for the past that makes Charleston charm ing.. sees to it that the order of the royal grant is -obeyed, and a rusty key ? s turned ~hj a n'sty lock once a year; n St. Andrew's on Easter"Sunday, and n (ioo.se Creek the Sunday after. And 'liar) est on fills up its gasoline tanks n these days and rides out ; jind those vho haven't automobiles or otiier per ianal means of conveyance, go out by ?pccinl train, for so far has the present iared to intrude on the past that spe rial excursions are riwi by the railroad 'or these occasions. Woman As a BullN Fighter. One would have thought \that to en er into combat with a bull demanded iiore courage than any member of tin rentier sex possesses. But even thif langerous calling has had its female i tllower. London Tit-Bits states. 'Johanna Maestrick was the name of he lady in question. At an early 'age ?she was taken to see a bull fljrht In Portugal. Met feminine susceptibilities, far from revolting at the spectacle, wore aroused to a keen desire imd de termination to emulate the prowess of the- toreador. A teacher of the art was ><0 struck with her keenness, physique ?nd beauty that he offered to become her Instructor and to train her as a torera. She made her first appearance In the arena at Oporto. The trial proved that her agility and skill were "qua I to her courage, for she quickly laid out two ferocious bulls and rode off in triumph amid thunders of ap plause. To Keep Suffrage Mementoes. A portrait of Susan B. An/liony, to gerher with tlio table upon which was written the calf for the Seneca, Falls convention- of- 184S ? the -first active movement in America to give women the vote ? has been presented to the Natural history museum, in Washing ton. h.v the National American Woman Suffrage association. The portrait was painted by Sarah J. Kddy, and for the last two years it h:i? hung in the head quarters of the national association. It represents Miss Anthony not as an in flexible leader of a great cause, but as a smiling, gray-haired woman, upon whose l<nee children are laying roses. The table was present?^ t-u Miss An thony by Elizabeth Cady Stanton, one of the convenors of the first conven tion. , i Finnish Agriculture. In spite of its northern position and its poor soli; ngrieuLure is still the chief occupation of Finland, even though the cultivated area covers only 8.5 per cent of the land, The co-oper ative movement, the introduction and use of modern agricultural machinery and Improved methods of cultivation have grea ly helptrd in the develop ment. but there is ample opportunity for furt h i development.

The average housewife would hold ap her hands in horror at the thought of cooking and providing for thirty men during a four days' aerial voy age. Yet this was only one of the tasks, and by no means the most Important, which confronted the organizers of ihe R 34's trip to America and hack, ? emarks London Tit-Bits. When It Is remembered that the men had to ronfonn to the rigid limitations of the accommodation, the task assumes ?'veil nior ? formidable proportions. Vi'iiKe ihj> provisioning of tin* crew a' back place, relatively. wh:n .nnip:y*v| with the- navigation arid '.>ther scientific arrangements, diet was. ? evirfl eless. a subject requiring the most careful cons'deration. The di lutive organs, if impaired, reaot at .?nee upon the nervous system, and In *tn enterprise of such a daring cliar-y .;cter a ; the flight nerves had to be tenderly, nourished. ^ The medical department of the air ministry was early consulted and de vIstMl a menu consisting mainly of meat, bread, cheese, chocolate, tea. eggs, and potatoes. Then came the problem of cooking, and the-R34 has surely the strangest kitchen existing. Instead of fixing an electrical or other usual type of stove, ti c hot exhaust gases from one of the motor engines were trapped, and led around a receptacle shaped for boiling or frying, the heat thus obtained be ing sullicient to meet all the require ments. There were three of these boilers provided altogether ? one In the fore car to hold three .pints, and one in each wing car to hold one and u half gallons. By means of these, soups und hot sustaining drinks were able to be made. The type of flying clothing provided for the crew is another example of the attention paid to detail to give the flight every chancy of success. Each member of the ship's complement was provided with two complete suits of sifk underclothing. Over this, woolen gear, similar to that provided for sub marine crews and divers, was worn. The Bells of -Michael's Mount. The pealing of joy bells in the year 1919 has made up for many years of silence in the ane-Ient belfries of Eu rope. Somebody deplores that on the occasion of the peace the one'remaln !ng bell of St. Michael's Mount on the Brittany coast, should not have been rung. There would have been a cer tain piquancy In hearing the clang of that bell, the gift In 1711 of the abbot from across the Rhine who, lie It said, reigned at the Mount only by proxy. But St. Michael's Mount Is without Its bells; even the abbot's bell which used to warn and guide the fishermen out 011 the bay has ceased to ring. The old abbey's peal was busy indeed, dur ing the Hundred Years' War, warning the countryside of the approach of the enemy. In the Revolution the order went forth that the bells should be melted down, but it was never carried out. In the intervening years all the bells have disappeared except the one given by the German dignitary. Deer Increasing In California. Though the game reserve established In the greater portion of the Angeles forest reserve in California, which in cludes the San Bernardino nnd Sierra Mad re Mountains, has been In exist ence but two years, wild deer are mul tiplying rapidly, according to forestry officials. It is believed that wTthln n few years great herds of deer will be roaming the hills. Deer have bei n on the verge of extermination , In the Southern California mountains, bur es tablishment of the preserve Is protect ing the herds. Even new deer often ap pear along the boundary lines of the restricted area, a. id at times wander into cities near llie foothills, seeming to be very tame, 'fhe forestry service will establish special patrols along the reserve during the coining hunting season to see that the law is not vlo luted. ? Christian Science Monitor. Geod-by Dctbin. Figures coutpiled by ihe New York sanitary bureau of the department of health and reported by Harry T. Gard ner, secretary of the Automobile Deal ers' association, show a great decrease in the number of stables, and. natural ly. in the numbers of horses occupying them. In 1917 there, were lO8,t).')0 horses. The most recent figures show a shrinkage of i)2 9.'IG horses. Chicago, too. shows a falling off in (lie reg istration of horse-drawn vehicles un der ihe wheel tax ^Jaw. In the four years ended May 1. this year, the num- . her of such vehicles decreased from 49,;"S2 to o!i,4S9.

TURNED TO COMMERCIAL USE Historic Mansion in Mexico City Re modeled and Made Into Typical American Drug Store. The conversion of the "House of Tiles" In the City of Mexico Into a typ Icnh American drug store marks the passing of one of the most palatial and unique structures ever erected In that city 6t interesting buildings. Many persons in the United States remember the house as the "Jockey club," the most exclusive and aristocratic place of Its kind in the republic, but for the past few years it has stood on a prom inent downtown corner, a bleak, de- . (Tepit structure, v hose shiny and :.::iit!y exterior of tile g:ive evii! u'"? cf its former gh ry. Soon it will op. n fur business as u drug store. The date when the building's foun dations were laid is lost in obscurity. I ut it Is thought that it was started i bout 1500. Later It came into the possession of Don Loute de Hlvero, a nan ( f varied career, wlio was re sponsible for Its exterior coat of tiles. These latter are of blue, yellow and whi to, Moorish In design, and wore made by artisans Urought from Tain* vera. Spain, by ibe Dominican friars In the s'xteenth century. They were .modeled In a special ceramic factory at I'uebla, about 75 miles distant, and the completion of this decoration Hie occasion for a public celebration. The family of Don Luis de Ilivero, who later l>ecame the count of Ori zaba, remained in possession of the house until tlie,tlme of the ill-fated Emperor Maximilian. Its last occu pant Was a sister of the then Count tie Orizaba, upon whom the" emperor conferred the title of marquosa de Ciria. Later the structure was taken over by the Jockey club and converted in to a sumptuous club hoijse. Stories of fabulous sums won and lost at Its gaming tables persist to this day. Stirring revolutionary times caused its abandonment, and for several years the building was vacant until the present lessees secured It for a period of twenty years. Indicative perhaps of an intention by the government to restore it later is the fact that before renovation started photographs were taken of all interesting porthyis of the building, in cluding the huge carved door* Freakish Costumea, In the reign of Henry VIII of Eng land the sleeve was generally a sepa rate acticle of dross, and in Stubbes time sleeves hung down to the skirts "trayllng on the ground and cast over the shoulders like a cow's tayle." Viollet ie-Duc gave cull's which hung down 14 inches longer than the hand thus proving that the wearer never worked. In the time of James I some times three pairs of gloves were worn, one over another. A curious custom arose about 179-1 of hat-wearing within doors. The Padnung young women put metal collars around their necks when they were young children till they numbered* between 20 and 30 and the necks of the wearers were stretched out in t lie most grotesque and uncom fortable fashion. African belles wear great copper rings on their limbs, which get so hot in the sun that an attendant has to carry water with which occasionally to cool them down. Dressed Beef. Some soldiers at camp spied a cow In a nearby fl. Id and after capturing her with the intention of having a drink of milk on the owner they dis covered to their disgust that she was dry. A disappointed doughboy leveled his gun at her. saying: "She'd look better to me as dressed beef." "Give you $"? If you turn the trick," said ano hiT. "It's a go," said the first one. "I'll turn her into dressed beef before morn'ng and claim that $ff." None of us thought he meant it, but in the morning lie claimed the money, saying the cow was now dressed beef. We had to be shown, so were taken to the field, and there, sure enough, the ro v w}i< dressed. She was careering about the field in a complete outfit of ihe kitchen police. ? Exchange. Avenues of Communicavion. Still a new means of communication h.s been devised. No longer is man to l.e dependent on the air for the r:'u'd transmission messages; for, a no\vf invention ? modeled afloat a barge in San Diego bay, California ? has made possible the sending of mes sages through air and water. Afcd. appropriately enough, the test of proof came when the United States Navy department s<>nt a message from Annapolis, Maryland, to the British Admiralty, telling, in this manner, of the arr'vnl of the 11-34 in America. Hold adventurer had conquered the air. Indeed, but not long before an other group, less spectacular, har nessed the sea and land to their own particular requirements. Kef p Children in School. "Children should stay in school as loiiu as possible because education means better Jobs," the federal chil dren's bureau urges. "Boys and girls , v. ho go to work at the end of grammar school rarely get good Jobs. The work iliev find to do is usually unskilled; it offers little training or chance for advancement. When they are older they find they are still untrained for skilled work that offers a future. Edu cation means higher wages. Many boys and girls when they leave school find work that offers a high wage for a beginner. But these wages seldom gro'w because the work requires no training. A position with a future and steadily increasing wages requires school training." " | oN DUTY, AS EVER Ex-Sergeant Merely in Another xLir.e of Trenches. n Fact, On?-Time Commander Thouflht Him' Mop?
