Brick Proven Durability
A chiuiuey of brick feet tn
height stands like a sentinel over the
abandoned mining town of Belmont,
near Tnuopah, Nev. This chimney,

showed the spirit of the men who
sought better living conditions Id these
communities that sprang up over- .
night. Brick was hauled from Sacra- J
tm-nto, u distance of more than 500
miles, hy means of ox teams. With- '
standing the attacks of weather for
55 years, this chimney Is In as good
condition now ns It was when erected
by the gold-mnd first Inhabitants of
the town. It gives mute testimony to
the durability of common brick.

ties to Virgil’* statement, Aeneld, 11 ]
40. "I fear the Greeks, even when |
they bring gifts." Presumably this
referred to the wooden horse strat-1
agent at the siege of Troy._

Didn’t Know Him
Margie, aged five, was surprised
when, after her mother read her n
story from a humor column, she told
the little girl the story was about her
self. The story told briefly of Margie’s
interest in birthdays and how on Feb-
ruary 2‘2, when her older brother told
her that it was George Washington’s
birthday, Margie had asked excitedly:
“What did he get?" And her mother
tint) insisted that she was the little
girl that made the remark, Murgle
said, disgustedly, "Why, mother, I
didn't sny that I don't even know
George Washington!" — Indianapolis

Irving Fisher says that 80 per cent
