The society and tho author have fixed upon no particular location for the proposed capital, but sug gest sites In England. France, Belgium. Holland. Italy, and, oddly enough, for the United States on the coast of New Jersey. Tho author aaserta that the sole object of this gigantic task haa been to promote the Interests of progress, econ omics, fraternity and peace, and to do velop world unity by deepening the sym pathy between Individuals and nations through an harmonious order of action and endeavor Mohr Volumes Distributed. Five hundred of these volumes are be ing distributed to tho principal libraries and sctentlflo institutions ot the world. as welli aa to the heads and officials of the various nations. In this way It Is hoped to reach the general public, be sides tho more advanced theorists and scientists. The project seems a meritori ous one and much haa been accomplished In this book toward giving It a definite form, but tho tremendous task still re mains of finding a Iqcatlon for this chlof city of the world and making a reality in mortar and stone. Tho volume Is a remarkable piece of book-making and contains numerous fine reproductions of plans, elevations and perspective vlewa of the different build ings, groups of statuary and gardens which are to be constructed. It is dated 1913 and was published In Paris. The author has dedicated his gtgantlc work to his brother, Andreas M. Andersen, who for some, time cherished the general Mcheme of a central city and worked upon the early propositions with the au thor. A'otea ArchHectoral Styles. The first part is a general treatment ot tho historical aspect ot architecture and urbanlsm by Prof. Gabriel Ierour of the University Of Bordeau. It la de voted to tracing briefly the chief archi tectural conceptions that have definitely marked the growing phasg,.of human de velopment In several parts of the vrorld i nd to noting the purposes. these concep tions have served, Illustrating various ityles and the tabor spent upon develp inr and beautifying them. The,, second Krt ot the book presents architectural plana and suggestions 'for conveniently tnd ' harmoniously .meeting the Incipient need, which It Is felt, sooner or later will give evidence of becoming a' vital necessity to all parts ot the Inhabited world; that Is, the need of an Interna tional world center ot communication is Many-Stded Project, To describe this many-sided project without the aid of the diagrams and plans, la well-nlgji Impossible, on account 3t the detail with which It has been worked up by the author and the archi tects. The site to be chosen Is a sea port. Approaching from the water, the great capital, covering ten square miles, .Ics before one, displaying the full beauty Its magnificent edifices, towers statu try, promenades, gardens, roads, lagoons nU canals. The port I reached through i monstrous sea-gate, surmounted on .Hher side by two coloitsal figures, which cuds Into a great basin' and harbor well nharved for the docking ot all manner sf craft, large and smell. From the great basin, canals branch out to encircle the hoJe, forming both a barrier and a means of water transportation. Near the shore and opposite this gate Is the vhyslcal culture center, Including a great iladlum, fields for sports, a great body of water forming a grand canal In the shape of a T, with a water theater and other features. From the grand canal etralKht Inland, extends a .beautiful wall, the avenue ot nations, on either side ot which are the great buildings ot the art and science centers, Palaces of eduoa tlcn, religion, art, administration, science, Justlco and finance, and remarkably ar tlitlo fountain, succeed one another un tl'. the Congress Square la readied. Here stands the Tower of Progress, a combi nation ot a sky-scraper and an EUfle tower, 1,000 feet In height, In which It Is planned to locate a central station for the publlo carriers and communication systems, the offices of international bocletles, the world press, and Interna tional presa bureau, wireless communlea- ilon. and other universal Interests will have their headquarters located on the many floors. This great tower, tn the center ot the main square, forms the icart of both the international center and the city proper. In every direction from It radiate the broad avenues of the city, which la divided into quarters and topes readily connected with the monumental group of buildings, by spac ious avenues. The quarters comprise i evidential, buslneis and industrial sec tions. Like the center luelf. the dty and Its sones are separated by water ways, the outermost of which forms a wide navigable canal connecting the sea with the basin for commerce, which lie on the outer extremity of the town. Jaelade Necessities. The plans of the International center Include nearly every public necessity and convenience one can Imagine; among them, stadiums, libraries, buildings for scientific research, administrative palaces, museums, conservatories, Institutions of art, music, letters, eta, and recreation buildings. Including one for physical cul ture for men and another for women umnalums with outdoor and covered st tmmlng pools, besides fields for every lonu of out-door sport. The whole laid out with water, heating, lighting and sanitary systems.

Advertised as the Places Where the Corn Never Fails While other roads are advertising the opening of resorves to settlements, the Rock Island Is turning Its attention to an old country, one that Is developed and where the corn crop never falls. Rela tive to this. It. M. Cottrcll, the agrtcul tuial commissioner of the road says: "Corn never falls In Arkansas and Louisiana. The year 1913 haa been one of the dryest years the central, part ot the United States has ever seen. They had what they called a drouth through Ar kansas and Louisiana, but the corn down ttfere Is yielding thirty-five to eighty bushels an acre where good seed and tillage were ueed. In 1911 there was a general drouth that extended from the Itocky mountains to the Atluntlo ocean and from the Canadian line to the gulf. Corn failed in many states. Oood farm ers In alt the corn districts of Arkansas and Louisiana raised forty-five to 100 bushels an acre that dry year. Corn never falls down there. "Why does corn never fall in Arkan sas and. Louisiana,? The average annual rainfall comes through the spring and summer. The rainfall la light during the ripening and gathering season. There is never a failure from drouth. Tho grow ing season In Louisiana Is eight months; in central Arkansas over seven months. Com Is never damaged by frost Tho toil on the bottom lands Is as rich aa that In the valley of tho Nile. Tho soil on, the uplands Is only moderate fertile, but the ample rainfall and long growing sea sons mako It produce good yields. "The corn grower In northern Louisi ana Is only 200 miles from New Orleans, whllo tho corn grower In central Arkansas Ii only 500 miles from that great grain exporting point. This nearness to the point of export gives the corn growers Of these two states an average of 10 cents a bushel more for their corn than the farmers receive in the northern corn belt. Thea two southern states offer the greatest opportunity In the world for corn growers." Fleada Self-Defense. BEATRICE, Neb..
