Turkey boasts of more spies to the square mile than any other country. as any one who ban been to Turkey wi:i nree. T!ie peculiar thing about these sj;ie U that they themselves cannot be trusted, no that a regular chain of spies 1m the result. There are spies to spy upon the Hples. The government oHiclaU have their own spies to wutch other people, but even the great authorities themselves are already being spied uion. What Is more, the method of spying is quite open, for the spies will stand by wherever two or three foreigners are gathered together and listen to the conversation. Visitors to Turkey natu rally Ket worried over such attentions, especially when It might be their bad luek to be followed about for weeks or months. It Is the "uninitiated visitor who usually receives the most attention, since he or she will carry on conver sation In a quiet undertone. The per-, .son who knows Turkey converses in a loud tone for all and sundry the spies especially to bear that he is only en gaged In pleasure or legitimate bus! noss, and the wise man leaves the.tople of polities severely alone. Loudon Answers DEEP SEA EXPLORATIONS. "BETTER BABIES FOR MICHIGAN," - FAIR'S SLOGAN Mrs. G. G. Caron to Be Superin tendent of Department BEAUTY NOT ALONE COUNTS. Practically All Companies to Be Repre sented at Exposition. G. W. Dickinson, general manager of the Michigan State Fair, asserts that practically every company in the Unit ed States which builds motorcars will be represented at the auto show to be held in connection with the big ex position at Detroit Sept. G to lo. "The latest models will be on exhi bition, and prospective purchasers will have an opportunity to get a line on all the new creations of the manufac turers several months before the auto shows In New York and Chicago," said Mr. Dickinson. "Building of autos on the grounds will be another feature which will at tract attention. The Ford Motor Com- i her engines for the United States fish pany Hand will render concerts in the j cries service In 1S2. It is worthy automobile building. I believe that j of note that the Albatross was the first the auto show will be one of the big ! steel steamer built In America. -Clevf attract Ions of the Fair." i land MoflVfr In American M.iira7ino Fishing With a Line That Is Some times Over Six Miles Long. The Albatross, the vessel that has been used by the oceanographers for some thirty years In deep sea explora tlons, fishes with a line three miles long, often four miles long, sometimes six miles long or over, a line of slender cable, but wonderfully strong, rolled off a deck winch by a sputtering steam engine, that will bring up from the ocean floor a three or four ton haul of sponges, crlnolds, Jellyfish, sea urchins, giant crabs, long white worms that break in two If you touch them, phosphorescent trees (really arlmalsi. sea cucumbers with hideous beads, starfish, devilfish, pelican fish, lantern fish, sharks' teeth, whales' ear hones, sea cows' ribs and scores of other ex traordlnary things. The Albatross follows no beaten paths of commerce. She goes where other vessels rarely go. She explores forgotten corners of the seven seas, drops her great nets by day and by night, takes hundreds of soundings In uncharted waters and, after a cruise of months, brings home her trophies for Onal safe keeping In Jars filled with alcohol and labeled with Greek and j Latin names. This sort of work he has been doing for thirty odd years, ever since George W. Dalrd designed Michigan Women Actively Connected With .Children's Welfare Movements Will Advise Mothers Contests For Babies From Towns and Cities. "Better Babies For Michigan" hi the State Fair's slogan. General Manager (1. W. Dickinson of the State Fair announces that Mrs. George G. Caron of Detroit, president of the-1 Detroit board of the Michigan Children's Home society, will be su perintendent of the Hotter Babies' con test to conducted during the Fair. Hundreds of entries from all sections of Michigan will be made in the eon test Dr. 'Mary Thompson Stevens of Detroit will be Judge at the Better Babies' contest. "While thousands of dollars have been expended In the improvement of live stock by the federal and state gov ernments, it has been only within the last three years that the United States has given Instruction to mothers In the care and training of their boys and girls through the federal children's bu reau," said Mrs. Caron today. "Wo Thrift Sunday Woodbridge N. Ferris, governor of Michigan, issued a proclamation on Thrift Sunday, which was observed September 5. The Governor said: "Fifty years ago there was a prac tice among the best New England families of encouraging their children to cultivate habits of thrift.' Today many American fathers and mothers give to their children money in a hap hazard way. The most prosperous aii thrifty Americans of today learn ed the value of a dollar by earning it when they were boys. Many parents do not realize the importance of giv ing their children the splendid op portunities they themselves enjoyed when they were boys and girls. The lack of thrift among American youth is an alarming symptom. Thrift does not mean stinginess, nor does it mean undue regard for the dollar. Habits of thrift in youth would largely do away with the demand for old age pensions. Thrift is really a practical form of patriotism. Owing to this lack of thrift, there is an inclination to constantly insist that our govern ment shall become more and more pa ternal in its character. This nation, in order to maintain its high position in civilization, needs to train Ameri can youth to habits of thrift. With thrift, other desirable habits are in variably associated." CLARENCE A.

Wheeler was elected a member of the board to fill the unexpired term of T. W. Peck, who resigned a week ago. Mr. Peck will soon leave the city. Mr. Peck was treasurer of the board and an effort was made at the Tuesday's meeting to select a new treasurer, but the move was unsuccessful. This of fice will be filled at a meeting of the board in the near future. In the selection of Mr. Wheeler as a member of the school board the oth er members have chosen wisely. Mr. Wheeler is abundantly qualified; he is a liberal tax payer and is vitally in terested in the schools because of hav ing children in the grades. He will be a good man to work with the other numbers of the board to make the schools the. best and most efficient of any in Michigan. The selection was made without Mr. Wheeler's knowledge. ave A St am dlardl You may make just as big a mis take in trying to save too much money as'in not saving enough.

"The other day I Inquired of a major league manager what class of young men he wanted for his team," writes Hugh S. Fullerton in Farm and Fire side. " 'Give me the farmer,' he replied In. stantJy. The chances for his falling victim to the temptations of baseball are fewer. He may not be as well posted as to city ways, but in one sea son you csnnot tell the difference. They come larger, stronger, live clean er and think more clearly than city boys do. Besides, the majority of them have the right Idea In view. They want to get money to buy a farm. " 'Twenty, yes, ten years ago the ma jor league baseball teams were recruit ed almost entirely from the larger cities. Cincinnati led In production for years, then Boston, then St. Ixiuls. A dozen yenrs ngo .V) per cent of the major league players hulled from New England and from the Atlantic states. Now more than 00 it cent of all major league players come from farms or from small village!, and the farms produce a greater number of good players than rome from any other place. "'Bubo Waddell, Bubo Marquard, Bube Ellis, Bubo Benton a score of rubes have shows tin major leaguo baseball, and their nickname once was one of ridicule. Not now. Managers of major league baseball teams' are looking for rubes, nud when they say Uube they mean, not the uncouth or the awkward recruit, but the clean cut, clean living boy from the farm.'"
