INTENSE HEAT PRODUCES
Scientists Have Succeeded in Pluck-
ing Real Diamonds and Rubies from
the Crucible of the Furnace.
Recent advices from Franco state
that Prof. Molssau the eminent sci-
entist and Inventor has actually suc-
ceeded In making genuine diamonds
and rubies. He employs for this pur-
pose tho electric furnace which has
been so improved that a degree of
heat can bo produced approaching tho
extreme temperatures which were un-
doubtedly a factor in the formation of
minerals and gems in the interior of
Tho rubies obtained are of large
size weighing 10 or 15 carats and in
quality and color equal and even sur-
pass those found In the earth. Tho
natural forces attending tho formation
of diamonds seen) to have been more
complicated and so far the diamonds
resulting from the efforts of the sci-
entists have been very small but still
they are positively identified as the
carbon crystal the diamond. They
aro remarkably clear and bright and
on a small scale as lino specimens as
nature's own product.
The electric furnace has enriched
chemistry with a whole series of
new compounds. Probably the one of
most value to mankind at large Is Cal-
cium Carbide. The simple applica-
tion of water to Calcium Carbide gen-
erates the gas Acetylene which Is
now being commonly used for light-
ing. Tho peculiar merits of Acetylene
light are its brilliance and high cau-
dle power ease of Installation eco-
nomy and its adaptability for HghMug
buildings of every description regard-
less of their location.
Work and Workers.
The work which presents no diffi-
culties to be overcome soon grows un-
interesting. There aro some workers so anxious
to catch time by tho forelock that
they almost tear the forelock off.
If it is true that good work Implies
that the workman knows h'.mseif It Is
equally true that the best work shows
that he has forgotten himself.
There Is only one right way to work
and It Is neither in doing things be-
fore they are started nor in doing
Ihem all over again after they are fin-
ished. Go to some successful workman and
ask him which of his days were hap-
piest and It's long odds that he'll say
to you "Those In which I began my
It is only when -at work that man
fulfills his proper place in God's crea-
ture scheme. They aro indeed rare
exceptions who "also serve who only
stand and wait."
The world is altogether too restrict-
ed In Its use of tho word "art." Work
of any kind done superlatively well
Is art dusting pictures as well as
A good worker Is pretty much like
a horse after all. When It's up-hill
going don't worry him; when it's
down-hill going don't hurry him; and
bo sure and tako go&Tl caro of him
onco bo's in tho barn.
IN8ECT PEST OF MILLERS.
Robeij. Leo Harris chief of the Ca-
tawba trlbo of Indians which has a
tiny reservation embracing only ouo
square mile near Rock Hill S. C on
which nro eighty members of tho
tribe lately visited Raleigh N. C
seeking in tho stato library for all In-
formation possible about tho Cataw-
has. The Indians were oven after
1700 a powerful tribe and touched tho
Cherokees who wore In tho North
Carolina mountains and In the foot-
hills. Chief Harris says that there
aro only lfiO Catawbas in tho Unlto;l
States while in 1700 the trlbo could
muster several thousand warriors. He
is anxious to have the tribe put under
federal caro and educated by tho government.
Over Forty Varieties of Moths and
Beetles Bother Them.
"Millers have a good deal to con-
tend with in modern times" said A.
II. Hull of KansaB City in the Mil-
waukee Free Press. "More than forty
species of destructive moths and bee-
tles infest granaries some of which
were only recently Imported and some
have been known as an enemy of
stored grain ever since very nnclent
times It takes a keen eyo to detect
in apparently sound wheat the pres-
ence of a 'granary weevil' but If the
grains have been stung by It incalcu
lablo Injury may bo done in a short
lime. Another destructive Insect that
Infests mills is tho flour moth known
ns the scourge of the flour mill. These
Insects excel in web-spinning and
sometimes jnlx up so much with tho
grain that tho machinery is clogged
and mills are stopped for long pe-
riods. "The Indian meal moth excels in
devouring the germs of wheat injur-
ing It for seed. A flat little beetle
called tho 'flour weevil often makes
its appearance in flour after it has
been barreled or bagged. They are
the worst pests In the milling world
that I can think of now and I some-
times wonder that the American pub-
lic is blessed with such excellent flour
in the face of all this insect opposition."
Senator Dawes as a Botanist.
John A. Harris used to relate tho
following incident which happened
in his homo town of Plainfleld Mfc3S.:
In 188C the late Senator Henry L.
Dawes while driving near the town
of Plainfleld not far from dimming
ton his native town lost his way and
secured the services of William Reld
a simple-minded youth to direct him
the right way.
Mr. Dawes took the boy in his car-
riage and as they were passing an
extensive pasture tho senator re-
marked that was "a fine lot of spear
"That's Herd's grass" remarked the
Vainly the senator tried to explain
that tho boy was wrong and finally
made a bet of $10 to a cent that lie
(Mr. Dawes) was right and referred
the. matter to Andrew E. Wells an
old farmer who knew. Mr. Dawes by
"Guess you have lost senator" said
the referee who decided the bet in the
boy's favor; "why that Is Herd's
grass for It belongs to Tom Herd."
So Mr. Dawes admitted that the joke
was on him.
A wonderful powdor of rarm
morlt and unrivaled strength.
"SLIMS "MEDIUMS STOUTS"
Destination of Clothing Shipments Is
Shown By Sizes
This is the tlmo when wholesale
clothiers are shipping fall and winter
slocks to tho provinces. An experi-
enced man can tell when a consign-
ment of ready-mades is going to cer-
tain sections of the South or South-
west by running over the list of 3ly.es.
In tho lingo of the trade sizes are
classified as "slims" "mediums" and
"stouts." Almost Invariably a South-
ern retailer when buying goods will
order twice as many "slims" as either
of the other sizes. Especially Is this
true in the mountains and in the
swamp sections where fat nien are
almost unknown and medium-sized
men aro uncommon. Nine men out of
ten down there are tall and slender.
Retailers In Kentucky Virginia and
In parts of Tennessee Texns and Mis-
souri uniformly order trousers with
extra length legs becausa the tallest
men in the country aro their custom-
ers. New York Sun.
Her Plan to Save.
The two women were talking about
children's parties. "Yes" said the
visitor "I'm going to glvo Wllllo a
party next week.- About twenty-five
children will be there. How much
Ice cream do you think I'll need?"
"You won't need more than a gal-
lon if you work a scheme I always
use" replied the other woman. "When
tho children all reach the house 1
pass around some cookies the yellow
sugar kind. 1 let them eat all they
want. They always eat so many that
when the Ice cream Is served one
small dish is enough for each child.
Nothing works so well ns tho sugar
cookies and they aro easily and cheap
ly made. If you don't use this scheme
you'll have to buy at least three gal-
lons of ice cream for the twenty-five
children." Kansas City Star.
John W. Gates and four other
heavy "plunger" friends wearing
watchchalns weighing a pound each
have formed a society "for the dis-
couragement of the bookmaking In-
dustry." This Is a good deal like
the man who has it on tap in his1
cellar but who runs for governor on-
the prohibition ticket.
Town Too Finicky.
The town of Mount Vernon back
yonder In tho benighted Stato of New
York must bo a queer little place and
mado up of queer people. In that vil-
lage it has been ordained that no kino
shall low no rooster crow nor faithful
watch dog bark. All these things that
have set the poet's song a-thrill and
havo touched tho listening oar of night
with comradeship are banished from
Mount Vernon. They are truly to bo
pitied those kind of people. They
have nerves and very much shattered
sort of nerves at that T&e town
should be Oslerlzed. Los Angeles J
Massachusetts people 'propose to
erect a monument to Ephrlam Bull of
Concord. Years ago finding a wild
grapevluo in tho wooda ho trans-
planted it to his yard in Concord
Mass. Careful attention resulted In
delicious grapes. Tho original vine
Is still growing nnd is the father of
the Concord grapes we all eat today.
Let the monument be erected.
8TRONGER THAN MET.
A Judge's Opinion of Grape-Nuts.
A gentleman who has acquired a
Judicial turn of mind from experience-
on the bench out in the Sunflower
State writes a carefully considered
opinion as to the value of Grape-Nuta
as food. He says:
"For the pasUG years Grape-Nuts
has been a prominent feature in our
bill of fare.
"The crisp food with the delicious
nutty flavor has become au Indispensa-
ble necessity In my family's everyday
"It has proved to bo most healthful
and beneficial and has enabled us to
practically abolish pastry and pies
from our table for the children prefer
Grape-Nuts and do not crave rich aud
"Grape-Nuts keeps us all In perfect
physical condition as a preventive of
disease it is beyond value. I have been
particularly Impressed by tho benefi-
cial effects of Grape-Nuts when used
by ladles who aro troubled with face
blemishes skin eruptions etc. It
clears up tho complexion wonderfully.
"As o its nutritive qualities my ex-
perience is that one small dish of
Grape-Nuts is superior to a pound of
meat for breakfast which is an Im-
portant consideration for anyone. It
satisfies tho appetite and strengthens
tho power of resisting fatigue while
Its uso involves none of the disagree-
able consequences that sometimes fol-
low a meat breakfast." Name given
by Postum Co. Rattle Creek Mich.
