The clowns disport themselves as of
yore. The band plays its tuneful
music. Acrobats swing high on shining
trapezes. The elephants go through
their ponderous moves. The seals flap
their way to children’s hearts. All is
the same as twenty years ago—the
circus does not change.
But with the passing of the years,
the effect has changed. The trappings
seem less bright. Their tawdry tinsel
no longer seems pure gold. The quaint-
ness of exotic cloaks no longer trans-
ports the mind to faraway lands. The
acrobats seem much the same as those
the daily stage brings us. The ele-
phants, for all their heavy training,
seem but commonplace. Even the
clowns seem less funny than in days
gone by. Time has passed, indeed.
The circus does not change. But we,
feeling the heavy hand of passing
time, have changed. No longer do we
feel as children. Through the glamor,
we see the sadness. TForsooth, since
our childhood days, we have progress-
ed.—Milwaukee J ournal.
When waters charged with carbon-
ate of calcium derived from limestone
are evaporated they deposit masses
of the carbonate, some of which are of
great beauty. This process can be ob-
served at many warm and “petrifying”
springs and also in limestone caverns
were stalactites and stalagmites are
being formed, according to the United
States geological survey. Mexican
“onyx” is formed in this way. Its
variations in color and texture, which
make it attractive and valuable as an
ornament, are commonly produced by
impurities or inclusions, such as oxide
of iron, or even mud and clay.

OUR BIRTH RATE IS NORMAL
Census Bureau Statistics Show That
Births Exceed Deaths by About
The census bureau, on the strength
of registered returns, gives figures te
show that the birth rate in the United
States exceeds the death rate by one-
third, which is a gratifying fact. We
are not one of the nations that need
pe anxious cn this vital point as far
as present conditions are concerned.
One of the most serious troubles in
France is the warning in its censuses
that in some years more of its inhab-
itants die tham are born. sume of
its neighbors grow much faster in
population. This disparity was some-
what noticed in the past, yet without
fully realizing the terrible menace in-
volved. The desolated towns and
farms of France are a monument to
the old census admonitions and the
awful sacrifice of young French man-
hood is far more dreadful than the
devastation. Often have the public
men of France sounded an alarm on
the defective birth rate. It is much
discussed now by thoughtful French
legislators and writers. A census al-
ways demands intelligent study.
The United States grows by immi-
gration as well as births, and our
school system tends to Americanize
the whole body of citizens. (Gur
schools are a great melting pot for
Americans of the future and to in-
crease their proportionate number.
The welfare of children is a great
pational issue. The birth rate and
death rate need continuous attention.
ALL WANT TO LIVE IN PARIS
So Many Foreigners Are There That
the Frenchman Is Being
The New York Evening Post's Paris
correspondent says that in an article
in Excelsior a French writer contends
that while Paris before the war was
the meeting place of all nationalities,
it has now become their permanent
abode, so that the Parisians are crowd-
ed out into the suburbs or unable to
find an apartment in the city.
The writer says that if you take a
census of the average apartment you
will find that it contains “Belgians
who left when the Germans came,
Russians driven out by bolshevism,
French families from the devastated
regions who seem to like it where they
are. American stwedents with their
omnipotent dollars, Englishmen trying
to do business and representatives of
the Balkan states, Poland, Turkey and
other distressed and unsettled regions
who are living on the Lord only knows
what. Paris is proud of her cosmo-
politanism. but is finding it inconvenl-
ent when the peoples of the world
show so little inclination to move.”

In spite of the increased costs and
great scarcity of important roots,
herbs, etc., the standard of quality
and the quantity of Hood’s Sarsaparil-
la have been faithfully maintained,
and are today the same as when this

fered to the public.
A bottle of Hood’s Sarsaparilla will

while others last but a week or two,
and some even less time.
Hood’s Sarsaparilla is effective asa
blood purifying and tonic medicine
and also after the Flu, Grip, fevers
and other debilitating, blood-poison-
ing diseases. It purifies the blood,
creates an appetite, and makes food
