Is now busy in seeking among manu
facturers of machinery for men who
can build machines to make in China
the toys which before the war were
practically all made In Germany.
China, with her cheap labor and
cheap sailing ship freights, promises to
compete with the toymakers at Nu
remberg, l-'uersch and Thtlt, who have
supplied toys for most of the civilized
world for generations. Many of the
toys were purchased also for their edu
cational value In the schools of China.
One sample of every sort of toy was
sought by Mr. Chang, not only from
the great toy Importing houses and big
retail shops, but the Bowery was
searched for the cbeajHjr articles.
Prices paid ranged from three for a
cent to $750 for a miniature model
boiler, burning coal dust, attached to a
complete miniature Corliss engine and
electric generator. Tills last was pur
chased in Philadelphia and was used
by the proprietor of a big toy shop to

conceived as a result of the employ
ment of these processes.
"Tills is the only condition that the
department imposes, and its reason:*
bleness will become apparent when It
is considered that Dr. Ulttman has
given to the public, through the depart
ment, processes which conservatively
might be worth millions of dollars
were they controlled by a private in
dustrial concern exclusively for its
seltish purposes.
"As soon as the department is as
sured that the public's interests are
properly safeguarded a full and com
plete scientific paper describing the
processes will be issued. In the mean
time the processes will be open to any
one who wishes to develop them under
the conditions Imposed.
"At the first public demonstration of
the Ulttman benzol and gasoline proc
esses held before the representatives
of the army and navy and large manu
facturing concerns announcement was
made that both processes might be
used by all Interested persons upon ap
plication to the department At the
same time, however, because of the de
sire to, give the public the fullest pos
sible benefit of the Rlttman processes
It was stated that the use of the proc
eases would be coupled with the con
ti dltlon that the person using the same
^wiuld give to the public the benefits of
j&riffuch ideas along mechanical lines as
fthey might conceive during the em
ployment of the processes."

farmers whose farms have been laid
waste will leave Liverpool shortly for
New York en route to farms near Wil

stocked for them, houses erected and
furnished. Steamship and mil way
lines are co-operating by reducing
