The steaming, vaporous landscape,
over which were scattered many shal-
low ponds, offered everywhere to view
an extraordinary luxuriance of vege-
tation, consisting mainly of plant
forms unfamiliar to us teday. Ex-
tremely abundant were gigantic
mosses resembling in kind our little
club mosses, but vastly magnified, at-
taining the size of forest trees with
trunks sometimes 130 feet long and
ten feet thick. These contributed
more material than any other plant to
the coal that was to be.

formed into coal. What remained of
it was mainly carbon. An average
chunk of anthracite is about 95 per
cent. carbon.
Bituminous coal contains about 38
per cent. of volatile matter; whence
its smokiness. In good anthracite
there is only about 3 per cent. of such
matter; it is for this reason an almost
smokeless fuel. All of the Pennsyl-
vania anthracite was originally bitu-
. minous coal, but high heat and great
pressure drove the volatile matter
out of it.
In the Pottsville region of Penn-
sylvania the average total thickness
of anthracite seams is 120 feet. This
reprasents an original vegetable de-
posit at least 1200 feet thick. One
can imagine the enormous length of
time that must have been required for
the growth of so vast a quantity of
woody material.
Animal life in the carboniferous
epoch was almost wholly aquatic.
The waters teemed with creatures
multitudinous. Insects swarmed
everywhere. It was particularly the
age of cockroaches. Huge reptiles
crawled sluggishly over the wet sands
of the seashore. As yet there were
ne birds and no animals. Millions of
years were to pass before the world
would be ready for their advent.
Simple Rat Pest Remedy.
A resident of Williamsport sug-
gests the following simple remedy for
ridding premises of rats:
“You gentlemen can clean out all
the rats by using common fly paper,
sticky side up, placed on runways or
any old place where the rat or rats
can get a foothold on the sticky pa-
per. The paper never lets go. It is
always looking for a place to catch
hold of it, better than any rat trap.
You can use it but once that is, when
it catches a rat or mouse. It just
rolls the rat or mouse up, then good-
night rat or mouse. Watch the paper
and see a circus when one gets a foot-
hold on the paper. No patent on the
article; any grocery store has it for
“If you do not believe that it will
hold on get a piece of the paper and
place your hand on it.”
211 Phone Calls for Each Person in
the United States.
Washington.—The Bureau of Cen-
sus has compiled its report on the tel-
ephonic enumeration of every five
years, taken in 1917, and says the av-
erage number of messages per year
for every man, woman and child in
the United States was 211. There
were 53,234 separate telephone sys-
© tems and lines operating 28,827,188
miles of wire, enough to girdle "the
earth at the Equator 1,153 times.
Nearly 22,000,000,000 messages were
sent over these wires during the year.
The industry gave employment to
262,628 persons, more than 65 per
cent. of whom were women. The Bell
telephone system controlled more
than four-fifths of the wire mileage.
Pershing Gives His | Flag to Wellesley
General Pershing’s four starred
flag of red with four white stars, to-
gether with his war helmet and the
personal battle pennon of the German
Emperor, were presented to Wellesley
College through the Azora Society
and a receiving committee from each
class. The Generals wife was a mem-
ber of Azora and he is now an honor-
ary member. The presentation was
made by Countess de Tiedekerke,
chairman of the Belgian Purple Cross,
now visiting in this country.

means to overcome the apparently im-
possible. One day last summer when
hurrying with a large amount of sew-
ing, and with no fire in the house, I
found it essential to press a number of
seams quickly, says one ingenious
woman. I heated my largest sized
curling iron over an alcohol lamp and
rubbed it over the dampened seams as
1 would an iron. The result was en-
tirely satisfactory, and I have since
found it a specially good method for
pressing velvet or velveteen seams, as
it does not injure the pile. Now I

Rev. Robert W. Trenbath, rector of
St. James’ Episcopal church, Mont-
clair, N. J., has conferred a "boon on
sufferers from poison ivy by announc-
ing as a remedy the green leaves of
common catnip rubbed on the affected
parts until the juice runs. This never
fails, Mrs. Trenbath says, no matter
how advanced the case may be, and is
simple to use, especially in the case of
As a child I learned a Latin quota-
tion which has always stood by me
and which I have had occasion to use
with grown-ups as well as with chil-
dren. The translation is this—“In es-
sentials unity; in nonessentials, liber-
ty; in all things, charity. » If all
team-work could be carried on in the
spirit of this wise counsel, think of
the petty quarrels and big fueds that
might be avoided!
We mothers cannot begin too early
to teach our children to “play fair”
and to work together harmoniously;
to emphasize the essential of life and
not to quarrel about the nonessentials.
In the kindergarten the children
learn in a very practical and effective
way, although they probably could not
state it in so many words, that the
chain is only as strong as the weak-
est link. If Tommy is disobedient and
pulls Sally’s hair, then the harmony
of the circle is suddenly broken. The
other children are quick to appreciate
this and when the next one is called
upon to select a partner for a game,
you may be sure Tommy is not chos-
en. Soon he begins to feel his exclu-
sion, and it does not take him long to
put cause and effect together. In the
future he will think twice before pull-
ing Sally’s hair!
Treatment such as this proves far
more effective than the kind usually
administered by an older person. Most
children are born with a keen sense of
justice, and do not protest at having
to suffer the just consequences of
their wrong-doing, especially when
meted out to them by a tribunal of
their peers. This suggests that it is
often a wise plan to keep hands off
and let the boys and girls adjust their
own differences. This helps to pro-
mote a good team spirit.

If you don’t you are depriving yourself of
the advantages that the splendid banking in-

Any one of them will open an account

only a trifling deposit, because bankers know
that small deposits often grow to become
large ones, as people discover what saving
means to them. There is a lot in that old song about
