New Camera Like Telescope.
A camera that can be used for tak-
ing photographs without the subject's
knowledge, resembling in appearance
a short telescope, has been brought
out in Europe, in spite of the war's ab-
sorbing interest, says Popular Science
Monthly. A lens almost invisible is
located in the side of the telescope, so
that the photographer, pointing what
appears to be a telescope at some dis-
tant object, can get snapshots of ob-
jects that Interest him, directly at
right angles to his apparent line of
The lens i3 equipped with an ad-
justable shutter, so that snapshots or
time exposures can be made. For
tourists traveling in foreign lands such
an equipment would be of considerable
value, as natives often spoil negatives
by unnatural posing and vacant star-
ing, and this little camera would throw
them off their guard. In Europe they
call these contrivances "detective"

HAD ALL HER AFFECTION GOLDFISH CAME FROM CHINA
One Woman in the World Who Was
Adored With a Devotion That
She had known her since her ear-
liest infancy and never taken a step
without her guidance. She could not
recall one twenty-four hours not spent
in her presence. While at times in-
tensely wearied of her, there was
never a moment when she would not
have abandoned anything for her sake.
That she tyrannized over her ^nd
caused her to make mistakes, at times
fatal errors, she never denied. But it
never interfered with her passionate
admiration of her. Sometimes she
found herself going to extreme lengths
for her. When in trouble she borrowed
money for her; when in grief she tried
desperately to console her. Once she
attempted to steal a woman's lover for
her. She thought her the most won-
derful woman in the world and that
nothing was too good for her. She
was never jealous of her, but she tried
to make others envy her. There were
times when her love for her caused
her to forget reason. There were
times, also, when for a short period
she hated her. had contempt for her.
But she never failed in her service or
to return in her adoration of—herself.
t City Has a History.
Hamadan, the Persian city, seems
to be the Ekbatana or summer resi-
dence of the ancient Persian kings,
where Alexander the Great stored his
enormous loot from Persia, estimated
at over $205,000,000. But there is to-
pographical difficulty about identify-
ing it with the earlier and still more
interesting Ekbatana described by
Herodotus—the city where the first

Result of Observation Made by Orien-
tal Who Evidently Had an Eye
for the Beautiful.
Some centuries ago an observant
Chinaman noticed a gay-colored carp
swimming among some other fish in a
fresh-water pool. The Chinaman did
not know it then, but the attention he
gave to that little fish started the world
in pursuit of another hobby. And that
little carp in its gay clothes became
the father of millions of finny beauties
scattered today all over the earth. We
call them goldfish, a writer observes in
the Philadelphia North American.
The fish the Chinaman saw was
probably an accident—it may have
been an albino carp. He singled it out
and bred other fish to it. That devel-
oped the type. Goldfish were swim-
ming around in aquariums and ponds
in China long before the rest of the
world sa\tf them.
About the year 1400 the Japanese
imported them from China. Two cen-
turies later they reached Europe.
There is a story that the first goldfish
in France came as a gift to Mme. Pom-
padour. It is also known that Admiral
Ammen of Uncle Sam's navy brought
some of the first goldfish to America
and gave them a home in a pool at the
foot of Lemon hill, Fairmount park,
Descendants of this goldfish today
are so varied and fantastic that the
Chinaman of several centuries ago
wouln't recognize them. There are
goldfish with two tails, goldfish with
no scales, spotted goldfish, and others
adorned with nearly every color of

One of the plainest models in an
afternoon frock for the nearly grown
miss is shown above. A dark gray or
mouse-colored crepe de chine was
chosen for making it, with skirt and
bodice in one.
The bodice is cut with a yoke and
the lower part of it is shirred, with
four parallel rows of shirring, and set
on to the yoke with a piping of the
crepe. Long, modeiately full sleeves,
are set into the arm's-eye in the same
way and finished with a deep cuff out-
lined with a piping.
The plain skirt is cut shoe-top
length and shirred in at the waist. A
wide, slightly stiffened band about the
bottom gives opportunity for using
the piping again, where it is set on.
A belt of the crepe fastens at one side
of the front, with a panel of embroi-
dery in red, blue, and gold brighten-
ing it across the front.
A lace collar and cuffs may be re-
placed with a similar set in colored
or white organdie, which are even
better style for the young girl than
Soft serge and supple silks are com-
bined in one-piece frocks for the miss.
In an unusually pretty model the serge
skirt is shirred to a short yoke of
silk and finished at the bottom with a
wide band of it. The silk yoke is ex-
tended above the waist line, forming
the lower part of the bodice. The
sleeves are full at the top, the fullness
confined by four rows of shirring, but
they are shaped to the arms below the
elbow and finished with a band of
braid that extends from the wrist
nearly to the elbow They and the up-
per part of the bodice are of the serge.

Many diseases of childhood and youth are due to
faulty diet—a diet that restricts the amount of needed
mineral salts, the lack of which, as your family physi-

diseases of mal-nutrition.

with fine effect is pictured here. A

over it a smaller cape in flesh pink is
exactly of the same shape and fin-

into a narrow band of organdie that

Efficiency built the Panama Canal, after inefficiency failed.
The efficiency of the Panama Canal doubled the effective-

took over 8,000 miles out of the trip from New York to
San Francisco and changed the highway between London
and Australia from Suez to Panama.

Every advantage that men, money and machinery can offer is used
to increase the production, maintain the quality and lower the cost.
Each of the General's enormous mills is advantageously located
to serve the ends of efficient manufacture and quick distribution.
Each is equipped with the most up-to-date machinery. Raw
materials are purchased in enormous quantities and far ahead of
the needs of manufacturing, thus guarding against increased
cost due to idle machinery. This also insures favorable buying,
and the pick of the market.
Expert chemists at each mill are employed to select and blend the
asphalts, and every roll of CERTAIN-TEED is made under
their watchful care.
CERTAIN-TEED resists the drying-out process so destructive
to ordinary roofing, because the felt is thoroughly saturated with a
blend of soft asphalts, prepared under the formula of the General's
board of expert chemists. It is then coated with a blend of harder
asphalts, which keeps the inner saturation soft. This makes a
roofing more pliable, and more impervious to the elements than
the harder, drier kind.
CERTAIN-TEED is made in rolls; also in slate-surfaced shingles.
There is a type of CERTAIN-
TEED for every kind of building,
with fiat or pitched roofs, from the
largest sky-scraper to the smallest
residence or out-building.
CERTAIN-TEED is guaranteed for
5, 10 or 15 years, according to ply
(1,2 or 3). Experience proves that
it iasts longer.
