Mind Our Own Business.
With the war ended the states men of England are getting very cocky again, and making speech es advising the United States to mind her own husiness. They are a little premature in their expressions, as the League of Nations covenant has not yet been adopted, and the people of this country may take them at their word, repudiate the League, and refuse to have anything fur ther to do with the European troubles. Os course, if the League becomes effective, and the council passes under the con trol of King George’s dominions, we know we will have to mind our own business, because the council will tell us where to head in, and failing to heed the order the League of Nations will call out the armies of the signatories to subjugate the United States.

LARGE FAMILIES ON RECORD Grand Total of Sixty-Two, Borne by One Wife, Would Seem to Be the Limit. ,The nation which could scheme out the intensive cultivation of “man power” would win all of the future and dominate the globe, but though this sort of thing can be done with vegetables and, to some extent, with poultry, it seems a far cry for the human race, and perhaps it is all for the best, for if six at a birth be came common marriage might become uncommon. The papers contained the informa tion lately that a woman of Palermo had presented her husband with five boys, all well formed, and, according to the doctor, “eating well and crying well,” but this case is neither unique nor a record. The largest (grand total of children borne by one wife seems to be 62 — as many as most wives could want, certainly! Strangely enough, this num ber has been twice recorded. One is sat to the credit of the wife of a poor weaver in Scotland who bore her “hubby” 46 boys and four girls who grew to manhood and womanhood, and a dozen others who died ere reaching their prime. Sir John Bowers of Newcastle, we are told, adopted ten of the sons—rath er a large order; three other landed gentry took ten each, and the remain der were brought up by their parents. WONDER AT FOREST’S QUIET Travelers Have Frequently Com mented on Apparent Deficiency of Animal Life in the Woods. European travelers frequently allude to the American forest as remarkable for its solitude and deficiency of ani mal life. A foreigner is struck with surprise, when rambling through the bush, at the scarcity of birds, rabbits, and hares, and astonished when in the deepest recesses of the wild country he sees no increase of their numbers. When paddling his canoe through lake and river he will startle but few pairs of exceedingly timid waterfowl, where In Europe they swam In multitudes. This scarcity of animals, I would re mark, is not peculiar to the American wilderness. The same fact has been observed In extensive forests both in Europe and Asia; and in proportion as the traveler penetrates into their in teriors he finds a smaller number of animals of almost every species. Birds, insects and quadrupeds will multiply in a certain ratio with the progress of agriculture, so long as there remains a sufficiency of wild wood to afford them a refuge and a home. They use the forest chiefly for shelter, and the open grounds for forage; the woods are their house, the meadows their farm.— Wilson Flagg, in “Woods and By-Ways of New England.” Silvering Mirrors. There are several processes for sil vering mirrors, the simplest of which, perhaps, is to provide a large flat stone table and spread upon it evenly a sheet of tinfoil without crease or blemish. This is covered uniformly to a depth of one-eighth inch with mercury. The plate of glass, perfect ly cleansed of all grease and impuri ties, is floated in the mercury care fully so as to exclude air bubbles. It Is then pressed down by loading with weights in order to press out the mercury which remains fluid. After about 24 hours it may be raised on its edge to harden, and should be finished in a few weeks. Another method involves the use of a solu tion made as follows: Mix one ounce nitrate of silver, three ounces water, one ounce liquid ammonia and three ounces spirits of wine. Filter after solution has stood three or four hours. To every ounce of the solution add one-fourth ounce sugar dissolved in equal quantities of water and alco hol. The surface to be silvered is covered with this liquid at a tempera ture of 160 degrees, maintained till the deposition of silver is complete. When dry, coated surface is covered with mastic varnish. Novel Cure for Nerves. I have a Philadelphia friend who was ordered by a famous neurological specialist to travel for a month on a limited express to cure him of ner vousness. He took a stateroom and be gan. He was a man of extensive busi ness interests, but as he could be reached by wire at a known point on the road at certain hours, coming or going, he kept in touch with his affairs without hindrance. It was a giddy life and the excitement effected a com plete cure—except that the familiar counting room was thereafter too dull for endurance and a Tigani band was Installed that played the wildest Hun garian music from nine till three. To everybody but the boss the remedy was worse than the ailment. —Julius Chalmers in Brooklyn Eagle. Gems Found In America. Our own country is far from con spicuous as a producer of gems, but the upper Missouri river has yielded from its gravel bars large numbers of small, bright and beautiful sapphires. They are not big enough or dark enough to fetch high prices. Nevertheless the finest green sap phire (oriental emerald) in the world was found In Macon county, N. C., and at last accounts was a feature of the collection of a citizen of Philadel phia—Clarence S. Bement. It is a transparent nodule of crystal, remark ably pure, and would yield In cutting a gem of 30 carats. The Winslow Cash Market handles only the best grades of meats. You are never disap pointed.
