Every city fondly hopes that Its own
contingent of heroes won the war. But no contingent was lacking in he roism and courage, and no place in the country has cause to be ashamed of the boys sent from there overseas. Nor cun the cities claim any superi ority in those qualities over the coun try boys who left the plows sticking In the furrows to fight like seasoned warriors in the trenches the profes sional and trained troops of Germany to a bloody but victorious finish. Life is a complex affair, but, not withstanding, some of its problems are exceedingly simple. Yet one demonstration of the fact will not suit all inquiring minds, some skep tics exacting individual proof.

F. B, TOURING fflj 490” TOURING $1 PICTURE THAT WOULD LIVE Study for a Painter Suggested in Inci dent in the Early Life of Daniel Webster. When Daniel Webster was eight years old he saw in a country shop a cotton handkerchief with something printed on both sides of it. He gave his whole stock of hoarded pennies to secure it and absorbed its contents that night with his keen dark eyes, on his father’s kitchen floor, by the light of the roaring chimney fire. What painter will be the first to make that scene perpetual in our country’s his tory and art? It was the Constitution of the United States, Just then in the dawn of its beneficent power under t the lead of President Washington, that the New Hampshire lad was then stamping on his memory. He told the , i story himself in 1850, and archly said: “I have known more or less of that document ever since.” . . . Forty years from ttyat winter came the great Hayne debate. But I would travel farther to see a master’s picture of the lad, reading the Constitution in the rude home on the edge of the north ern wilderness, than to see Healey’s great painting of the orator In the sen atorial struggle against the theory and passions of secession; as I would go farther to see a picture of the springs of the Amazon, far up under the cold white splinters of the than the most adequate representation of the imperial river’s tropical course.—■ Thomas Starr King. GAVE IDEA TO INVENTORS Timothy Alden's Typesetting Machine First of the Kind to Be Placed on the Market. Timothy Alden . was born In Barn stable, Mass., 96 years ago. He was the first man to invent a typesetting | machine. In his boyhood Timothy was ! apprenticed to a printer. He was a j born inventor, and almost from his i first day in the printing office he be gan to think of plans for improving the various processes connected with | the typographical art. He Invented j several machines connected with printing before he turned his attention to the mechanical setting of type. After several of study he pro duced his first model of a typesetting machine In 1846. This machine con sisted of a horizontal rotating wheel with type cells on Its circumference ■ making receivers rotate with it to pick j out the type at the proper places.

Timothy Alden died in Boston in 1858, and his brother, Henry, later made several improvements in the ma chine. Timothy Alden’s machine had the merit of setting others to thinking about the same problem, with the re sult that hand composition is rapidly becoming a thing of the past. All About Eggs. In a hen’s egg only one-fifth of the substance Is nutritious. One-ninth is refuse, and the greater portion, about two-thirds, is water. Judged by the amount of nutriment, a goose’s egg is the most valuable; next in order are duck’s, guinea fowl’s, 1 lien’s, turkey’s. Eggs contain a large quantity of sulphur, which Is purifying to the blood and good for the complexion. To get the best egg you must feed your fowl on grain. And to cook it in the most digestible way you must not boil the water. Heat the water to 180 degrees and leave the egg In it for ten minutes. You will then digest every morsel. But if you boll it for three minutes no less than one-twelfth of it will fail to be di gested.—Short Stories. TO INSURE AGAINST POVERTY Writer Is Confident That a Practical Scheme Will Be Worked Out Before Many Years. Sickness Is an insurable risk and there is no doubt that some very com prehensive and acceptable scheme of insurance against it will yet be worked out. Whether, In the United States, it will be a compulsory, state-managed t scheme is by no means so certain. But the more that subject is agitated the faster sickness loss will be reduced, for agitation will direct attention to public health, and means that are tried and proved will be more exten ; sively employed to prevent sickness. Steady, intelligent public attention is what the whole problem of poverty needs. There Is no doubt that a great part of It 'is preventable. The poor, it is true, we have always with us. Time was when we had always had slavery and smallpox with us. Now out of half a million persons one person dies annually of smallpox in the United States. Time was when slavery and smallpox were generally taken as a matter of course. As soon as they ceased being taken as a mat ter of course they were put Into the way of practically disappearing —not by any magic formula but by tireless, sure-footed, practical-minded effort. At length we have the means of re ducing poverty to its practical. Irre ducible minimum. It is only very re cently, as history runs, that we have had those means. But now we have the wealth—not enough wealth for a limousine and -a grand piano to every inhabitant and a four-hour workday; hut enough for the essentials of decent physical existence to every family. We have the social and Industrial or ganization and the body of scientific knowledge. Poverty is a social loss and a social danger.
