J don of Money. , Riches and money have been com monly but mistakenly synouyins. A mother with u group of rliihlreu may eoiftaider these her jewels, albeit by a hunk examiner's rating she would be poorer than Job's turkey. A man with houses and lands may be destitute in human affections eddying round his Chair and table, and so in life's para mount values the balancing of the ac count shows a deficit, though under the dollar sign he may be able to lig ure a fortune. Each soul selects the sort of afflu ence It prefers, observes a writer in the Philadelphia Ledger. You may choose that you will gain the whole world, no matter what becomes of the spirit. Years after it will be a sad tiling to see the gross materialist you have .become. , You may be sated with : the " pleasures of the senses, but you b,ave missed the best things life has to otfer. You may be the chief target for the Income tax collector, but the children of the region do not love you. The man or woman is rich who has acquired sound, seasoned, lasting friendships, true through thick or thin. Any other sort of prosperity is much affected by fair weather or foul. AVhen mere money has taken wing out of the window the ' attaches of the heydey of sunny prosperity abruptly decamp, even as rats flee from a sinking ves sel. But the assets of character that link those we love to us enduringly, with the grappling hooks of steel, are proof against corrosion or burglary and will stand any strain that Is put on them. Who dares to oail me poor if I can keep the unbroken circle, on earth or In Heaven, that love has once established? What a fallacy to define riches as Anything sensual! For all that is of the flesh fleshy and of the earth earthy must one day perish like weeds that are slain by the reaper in the hot sun. Only love and truth and beauty and their divine fellowships are immortal, and only these are worth the husban dry of the undying soul. He who has his fortune in these commodities is entitled to be called rich. Time and change and adver sity have no power upon them. They are the only tilings a man can take with 1dm when he goes. In the process of acquiring them they become part of him Inseparably. He who has them "wears his commendation in his face," for it may be read as he passes that his converse is with the higher and finer things, and hts daily walk Is on the plane where the noblest meet and greet familiarly. Appeal to Psychologists. We are going in strong for psychol ogy' nnd invite assistance. Why Is it that whenever sheriffs, marshals and constables have their photographs taken they Invariably wear their hats? Houston Post.

MORE VALUABLE THAN GOLD Real Treasure of Peru Was the Po " tato, Though Spaniards Did Not Realize It. The gold of the Indies was the at traction that led Columbus to sail westward, that carried Cortez to Mex ico and Pizarro to Peru. The Incas had large stores of the precious metal, representing, no doubt,; the accumula tions of many centuries. The capture of such a booty resounded through Europe. Spain became for a time the wealthiest, as well as the most pow erful, nation of Europe, and this was ascribed to the gold of Peru. But Peru held another treasure much more valuable for the nations of Europe than the golden booty of Pizarro. Carrying the potato to Eu rope, was an event of much more pro found significance in relation to the subsequent history of the world than Pending the, Inca gold to the coffers of Spain." But nobody understood the value of the potato, and Its Peruvian origin was generally forgotten before the plant became well known. In stead of Peruvian potatoes we call therri Irish potatoes. The potato was the basis of the ancient Peruvian nation and has at tained almost the same importance in other parts of the world within the last 100 years. National Geographic Magazine. "Puget Sound Lobster." Seattle is consuming only about half a ton of octopus, "devilfish," a week, according-to fish dealers of that city. But this consumption Is bound to jump as soon as the Americans be come familiar with the taste of this inhabitant of the deep. " The Greek fishermen, who consider the octopus a great delicacy, call it "devilfish;" while the Japanese fish dealer gets calls from his people for "tako," and when Sing, down in Chinatown, places it on hi.s menu card he gives It a name that only a Cantonese can read or un derstand. When cafe managers up town decide to give their patrons a treat the lowly devilfish probably will become "Puget Sound lobster." Improved Fuel for Airplanes, That the Germans are using a new and Improved fuel for airplane en gines was the statement of Leon Ca men before the Aeronautical society. To gasoline is added one per cent of toluol and one and one-half per cent ff. alcohol. The mixture gives a sharp er ignition than simple gasoline, and while it exerts some deteriorating ef fect upon the metal, the short life of the airplane motor at the war front iKjans that the motor Is discarded be fore the deterioration becomes se rious. Toluol is a coal tar product and Is the base of that powerful explosive, trinitrotoluol. "Bear" Proved Harmless.' A white bear had been seen in the Alps near Ofenburg, Switzerland, peas ants reported. The alarm created some excitement in the mountains. The authorities were forced to arrange a great hunt to run down the "animal." The hunt was successful and the "an imal" was cornered. He turned out to be a poor Russian deserter clad in a sheepskin coat who had been running around aimlessly. Church Novelty. Flatbush Been to church lately? Bensonhurst Sure, I was there last Sunday.
