Like Many, Rochester
Saw Light Too Late
A document of considerable historic
end literary importance was recently
sold In London. It Is the original let-
ter written by the famous Restoration
wit, Lord Rochester, on his deathbed,
recanting his sad past.
The letter was garbled as n broad-
side after his death, and even Bishop
Burnett, to whom it was addressed,
reproduced it Inaccurately. It Is of
Interest, therefore, to give his actual

The same sides of a pair of twins
are more frequently alike Mian their
opposite sides, the investigation re-
vealed. To visualize this, Imagine a
pair of twins like paper dolls folded
over and cut by a simple pattern. If
one is placed in front of the other,
both facing the same way, the two
sides will be more likely to match
than If one twin stands in front of the
other and they face each other.
In studying the symmetry of the
twins the investigators examined the
eyes, nose, ears, teeth, eyebrows, hair
whorl, right or left hnndedaess, hand
prints, and also mentality.
It bad been previously suggested
that a twin who has a duplicate ex-
actly like himself would probably be
an extraordinarily symmetrical person
himself, that Is, his two eyes und ears
and hands would be unusually alike.
It was found, however, that the iden-
tical twins were less often symmet-
rical individually than other twins
who did not look alike, and who also
Mentally the twins examined were

It's a melting story the division is
telling, and the end of It may spell
the doom of that commodity known
to housewives far and wide us a
“seventy-five-pound piece.” The di-
vision asserts it isn’t simple, It Isn't
economical. It doesn't properly fit the
modern refrigerator and seeks Its “ul-
timate elimination” in favor of 25, 50,
100 and 150 pound cakes ranging in
dimension from 12 by 12 by 8 inches
to 12 by 24 by 24 Inches.
The 73-pound cake, which is 12 by
