the Heraldic Device of House
Famous In History.
Durinjr the Middle ages the Lom-
bard? made a practice of lending
money at Interest. The Medici family
was the first to turn the practice Into
Many years before. Averardo de Me-
did, a commander who nerved with
distinction under Charlemagne the
Great, killed the giant Mugello, whose
club had three iron balls attached to
It in order that it might be a more
effective weapon. For this reason the
family of the Medici adopted the three
balls, gilded, as the heraldic device on
their coat-of-arms, and the appearance
of this insignia soon en me to l e rec-
ognized as a symbol for money-lend*
Incidentally, the name of the Medici
fnmlly has been further perpetuated
through the word "medicine" a trib-
ute to the skill of tbe members of
this house in the art of healing.

Prodigies of the Past.
Long before the war It was stated
that a man was too old at forty. But
oow it looks likely that soon the cry
will be "too old at fifteen!"
A small boy of eight summers re-
cently tackled twenty or thirty of the
best chess players in the world, set-
ting them all problems they could not
tackle; another child appears on the
scene, who, at the n£e of seven or
eight, pens a diary, which the greatest
literary lights describe as wonderful;
while we'll soon have quite a small
library of Juvenile novels.
It was regarded as a phenomenon
when Chatterton wrote immortal
poems at twelve, when Mozart com-
posed In his fifth year a concerto so
difficult that only the most practical
artists could play it, when the infant
son of Evelyn, the diarist, could read
Latin and Greek at three and one-half,
when Macanlay had written a poem as
long as "The Lady of the Lake'' at
eight and when Millals carried off a
gold medal for painting at nine! But
now it's becoming quite the usual
Freight by Air.
England Is credited with being the
foremost nation In aviation. In 15
months, the record shows. S2.000 pas-
sengers and 200,000 pounds of freight
traveled 1.000,000 miles in 48.000
flights. The trnnsocean passenger
schedule, which was so confidently
predicted as almost ready several
years ago. Is still remote, but It Is a
fact that a round trip from London to
Paris (574 miles) can be made In six
hours Instead of twenty-four, at a cost
of about $90 for plane, ngalnst $40 by
rail. The aero company which is op-
erating a passenger service between
Key West and Havana, charges $150
for one pa>senger one way from New
York to Boston (200 miles).
Quakertown has been sitting in on cellar baseball for several seasons.
The Phils have gradually declined from pennant winner under Pat Moran to
tbe bottom of the ladder.
Wild Bill Donovan, former bos*; of the old New lork Highlanders, will try
his hand with the destinies of the National league club this season, and the
fans are looking to him to get them some kind of a winner. Quakertown isn't
crazy for a pennant. The bugs Just want something in baseball, not the worst. ;
"I'm not making any promises or predictions, but I do think that I can :
mold something out of the material at hand that will not run last," Donovan
'"The club needs strengthening In several departments. I would like to
have some young blood behind tbe bat and a good peppery infielder. But any
one who follows baseball knows that wanting players and getting them are
two very different things.
"The trade we made with the Cincinnati Reds strengthened our club, even
If It is claimed we got the worst of It. Rliey was a good pitcher, there Is nc
doubt of that, but 1 think Jimmy Ring can win Just as many games. Neale ;
is a good ball player aDd will add strength to our outfield."

Samples of rabbit leather recently
sent to this country from Australia
have been examined and tested by the
United States bureau of standards,
with a Tiew to determining the utlllza-
blllty of such skins for shoe uppers or
The leather was found to have only
■bout one-fourth the strength of calf-
skin and to tear rather easily. It has a
great advantage in point of'cheapness
and might perhaps serve for uppers of
fancy shoes that are not expected to
stand much wear. The experts are of
the opinion that It could be used to
advantage for linings and novelties.

Preparing Soil for Tobacco.
For the purpose of tobacco growing
the soil must be thoroughly cleared
of weeds, seeds and Insect larva be-
fore the plants are set out. Old prac-
tice was to build fires over the sur-
face, but the operation is now accom-
plished by means of a canvas cover
under which live steam from a road
roller is projected. A high tempera-

JN THE pursuit of happiness women
have been going earnestly and in-
dustriously in quest of new suits—
for what is Easter without the Inspira-
tion of new and gladsome apparel?
The quest has reached the acute stage
during the present week and mer-
chants know what style ideas have
proved most successful. To begin
with the longer skirt Is finally and
emphatically approved by fashionables
—skirts are longer by many inches,
the rule being eight or even six inches
from the floor. Also they are plain.
Poiret twill, tricotine and serge are
all well represented In suits aDd dec-
orative features appear on -oats,
which are made In at least three dis-
tinct styles. Including the box coat,
the straight line belted coat and the
In tbe matter of decorations, braids
may come and beads may go but em-
broideries go on forever, apparently.
A few models reveal beaded decora-
tions. many are trimmed with flat
braids or ribbon, but still greater
numbers are either embroidered or
finished off with stitching . * heavy
silk thread. At least nine times out
of ten these decorations are in the
same color as the suit, but there are
exceptions to all rules, and the new
suits present models with a contrast-
ing color or black used with the match-
ing color. There are occasional models
In which short coats are elaborately
embroidered with many colors.
Two representative suits, each em-
bellished with embroidery, are shown
in the picture above. The model at
the left having points that pronounce
It up to date, In the fastening of the
coat at the waist line only, and in the
bell sleeves. Blouses and handsome
neckwear are much In evidence In
coats of this kind. The skirt may be
taken as a criterion in length and
width, and every other particular, in-
cluding tailoring that must be de-
scribed as exquisite.
In the suit of beige-colored poiret
twill at the right, the straight-line
coat Invites attention to elaborate em-
broidery across the back. Small em-
broidered motifs at £2<"h side tbe front
also belr> to enrich It.
