Tomato Seed Oil.
Every time a scientist or any one
else finds a way to make use of some-
thing that has heretofore been thrown
away as waste he confers a benefit on
humanity. Some time ago millers
used to throw their bran into the riv-
ers, and the people complained and
started lawsuits on the ground that
the fish were poisoned. Later it was
found out that bran had good food val-
ue for both man and fish, and a man
who threw it into the river might now
be arrested for criminal waste. Not
long ago cotton seed was considered
more of a nuisance than anything else,
. but it has become almost as valuable
as the fiber.
Now it has been found by the de-
partment of agriculture that the to-
mato seeds which have annually piled
up around the canning factories and
such places have a valuable oil and
can be made to pay instead of being
left as a pure waste and loss. Toma-
to-seed oil is of a deep brown color and
has a strong odor, but when refined it
has been found to compare favorably
with other edible oils of commerce.
The seed must first be separated
from the wet waste, and this is done
with the ordinary cyclone pumping
machine and a suitable wire screen.
When dried the seeds are ready for ex-
tracting process. This is accomplish-
ed by a press or by solvent extraction,
the press producing a little better
grade of oil. A yield of about 17 per
cent. of oil is obtained. :
In addition, there is obtained an oil
cake, or meal, which may be used as
food for cattle, hogs or chickens. This
has been thoroughly tried out in Italy
where the meal has been found as
good as some of the well-known seed
meals of commerce.
It has been estimated that there are
about 2000 tons of seed available an-
nually in the eastern and middle west~
ern tomato belts where more than
200,000 tons of tomatoes are pulped
annually. This will mean changing
tons of waste into barrels of good oil.

An Indifferent View.
“An amusing incident occured in a
trial I attended not long ago,” says a
“‘Have you,” demanded the judge,
after the customary formula, ‘any-
thing to say before sentence is pro-
nounced against you?’ ;
“¢Only one thing, your honor,’ said
the cenvicted burglar. ‘The only thing
1 have objected to in this trial was be-
ing identified by 2 man who kept his
head under the bedclothing the whole
time I was in the room. It strikes me
that is not right at all.’ ”—Philadel-
phia Ledger. :

Scientists Disagree as to Whether
They Were Habitations or Tombs
of Primitive Race.
Curious caves in the Matsuyama
Lills, in the province of Saitama, near
Tokyo, Japan, are believed by some
to have been the homes of an ancient
race called the Tusehiguma, or Earth
Spiders, who lived long before the
ancient Ainos. Others think them to
be tombs, while many are convinced
that they are merely shelters used
by the primitive tribe when pursued
by enemies,
The caves are all on the southern
slope of the hills, and command an
extended view of a fertile valley. This
strategic position argues for those
who believe the caves to have been
habitations and not tombs. About 200
of them have been unearthed. Seen
from a distance they resemble a huge
swallow bank. They are so close to-
gether that the inner walls almost
touch, and are entered through a nar-
row, long, low passageway—so low in
fact that a man cannot stand upright
in the largest one. Each room is about
six by nine feet in size; the ceiling
is domed, and along the side is a
ledge raised about nine inches from
the ground. This was doubtless cov-
ered with leaves, and used as a bed.
No tools, weapons or household ar-
ticles have been unearthed and there
are no drawings on the walls, nor any
sign of a pathway outside. The only
light comes from the passageway. The
caves are practically unknown and un-
visited, except by a few scholars.

son of their strength, to give a good

and many of the smaller animals de-
pend upon the rapidity of their move-

“protective coloration.”
Snakes and many varieties of fish
form an excellent illustration. Their
scales are so colored that they blend
Association Is Awakening to the Faot
Stucy of the Fermer Is Not
The Mathematical Association of
America has discovered that interest
in the study of mathematics in high
schools and college preparatory insti-
tutions is lagging.
Under present methods of teaching,
only the mathematically inclined are
able to pursue the courses with any
degree of interest or enjoyment. Ii
will be good news to thousands of stu-
dents, badly winded after a feverish
pursuit of the elusive x, to learn that
the association plans reforms.
Mathematics has been dry for most
students. Young minds that thrill to
the mysteries revealed by physics or
chemistry have been found singularly
calm and considerably cloudy after
contemplation of the binominal theor-
em, Extracting the cube root of
an incomprehensible number has
been the dullest sort of drudgery comm-
pared with the study of the Na-
poleonic wars or the glory that
was Greece and the grandeur that
was Rome. The melodies of dead
poets and the masterpieces of literary
geniuses have warmed hearts and
fired minds which Euclid leaves cold
and calm. The energy expended and
the brain cells shattered in prodigious
wrestling matches with decimal frac-
tions, logarithms, algebraic absurdi-
ties, geometric obscurities and trig-
onometric absurdities have constituted
an enormous waste.
It is well that the mathematicians
have awakened to the fact that their

Nature Seems to Have Laid Down
Some Rules to Which She Rath-
er Rigidly Adheres.
Why do tall persons have narrow
noses? There are many exceptions,
but this is the rule. :
The type of the nose that we call
“aquiline” is much more common in
tall people than in those of short
On the other hand, short
! people are much more apt to have
flat or snub noses.
Tall men are usually long-headed,

ows of the water, maxing them al-
most invisible to the eye.
is only when one of these protective-
ence is apparent.
The same principle is responsible
for the different colors of birds’ eggs.
The mother bird is unable to fight
aggressively, so she has to seek refuge
in flight. During the time she is
away from the nest, either seeking
safety from her enemies or looking
for food, the eggs must be protected
in some manner. It is for this reason
that they are colored to blend with
the surroudings in which they are

they are laid in the sand or among

Peculiarity of Dreams.
A curious hint is given by dreams

jects, it would seem, of thought. I
hardly know how to tell my mean-
ing, but fellow dreamers will be able
to interpret by their own experience. : them together until the end of the
We have dreamed something, it was -

Short people in a great majority of
instances have short or round faces.
Long faces go more often with supe-
rior height.
This is not at all surprising. Tall
people have a tendency to longness
throughout their anatomical structure.
Usually their noses are long. Their
arms and legs are long. The height
of most very tall persons is mainly
in their legs. Short people, on the
other hand, are apt to be short in all
parts of their physique.
French Like Civil Weddings.

going affair. It is real partnership.

clear, the impression lingers when we °
wake. But it is not reducible to terms
of thought, much less words. We have
no grasp on it as an image or a sen-
sation, yet in some remote corner of
ourself we know perfectly what it was.
It is not a matter of having forgot-
ten—the thing is inexpressible to oth-
ers or ourself. Only itself knows
what it was, and itself is buried away
somewhere within us. When vainly
trying to master the conception of the -
fourth dimension we are reminded of
those dreams.—Exchange.
Pemaquid, 1607.
In this time of commemorating the
Pilgrims, the people of Pemaquid,
Maine, rise to remind the world that
a colony of English settlers landed at
Pemaquid about fourteen years be-
fore the little company that crossed
on the Mayflower debarked at Ply-
mouth. Pemaquid had developed into
quite a trading colony before the Ply-
mouth settlers managed to gain a foot-
hold in the new country, and the
Maine settlers provided the Pilgrims
with a large quantity of food, accord-
ing to the records, when appealed to
by Governor Bradford. At Pemaquid
may still be seen the remains of a
fort that was erected in 1690 at a
cost of £20,000, which was two-thirds
of the entire appropriation of Massa-
chusetts, which then included Maine,
for that year.
The Man With the Toe.
Here is an extract from an article
in the Geographical Magazine, in
which the writer describes the labori-
ous culture of rice on hillsides in the
Yangtze valley:
“The roily water makes the hoeing
of his rice field impossible; so he does
not hoe it, he toes it. With bare foot
he feels about the plant with his toes,
and if he finds a weed, he toes it out;
then presses the dirt firmly in place
again. With his right foot he toes
two rows, with his left foot he toes
four rows as he goes. That's the
way he hoes.”
White men can never expect—nor
should be expected—to compete with
this sort of thing.—Los Angeles
are no vows as to mutual toleration for
better or for worse. But the French
husband and wife marry to take up
each other’s burdens, and then carry
This can be traced to several cases.
One is that young people are linked
together in France with a view to
their practical well-being as well as to
their svmpathies. A girl who is an
artist does not marry a bootmaker.
And a shopkeeper rarely thinks of
joining his fortune to any but a shop-
keeper's daughter or a business girl.
The classes do not intermingle in
marriage, not because of snobbishness,
but because it is not practical.—From
the Continental Edition of the London
Moslems Ignore Mourning.
No mourning is worn uy the crtho-
dox Turks of the Moslem religion, nor
are periods of seclusion observed by
the Osmanli tribes or by most other
Moslems after the death of a rela-
tive. Women friends pay visits of
condolence to the harem, but the in-
mates—after thanking their guests for
their formal expression of sympathy
and good wishes for their future ex-
emption from bereavement, speak
calmly and resignedly of the departed.
If a child has died the mother and
her relatives even rejoice before their
friends. For according to Moslem
tenets it is considered sinful to show
expressive sorrow over the death of
a child. To do so is also thought det-
rimental to the repose of the child’s
soul and his happiress in paradise.
Surprising the Empress.
An amusing story is told by Augus-
tin Filon in his reminiscences of the
Empress Eugenie.
One day, when she was lyf in a
hammock, an over-zealous aide-de-
camp (it was not his first blunder)
noticed an old Japanese parasol which
was lying long forgotten at the foot
of a tree, and which had become, by
the accumulation of years, the recep-
tacle of a varied collection of living
and dead insects. '
Advancing with the movements of
a slave of the harem fanning a sul-
tana, the officer opened the parasol,
and a perfect deluge of grubs and
caterpillars rained upon the empress,
who uttered a shriek of terror and
sprang out of the hammock like
Men of Genius Engaged to Decorate
the Capitol in the City of
Most of the decorations in the capl-
tol at Washington are the work of
Italian artists, according to an article
by Professor Enrico Sartorio, In an
Italian magazine published in New
The dome was decorated by a young
Italian painter, Pietro Bonani, who
had previously worked in Rome and
Carrara, and who died in 1819, short-
ly after the completion of his work
in Washington. The cast of the statue
of liberty was done by Causici, who
died before he could put it into mar-
ble, and the spread eagle under the
statue was carved by another Italien,
As the hall of representatives
neared completion in 1806 Giuseppe
Franzoni and Giovanni Andrei, sculp-
tors, were brought over from Italy.
The former was skilled in figures and
the latter in decorative sculpture, bat
their work was destroyed when the
capitol was burned by the British dur-
Ing the War of 1812. When work was
resumed, Andrei was sent to Italy to
engage sculptors proficient in model-
ing figures, and it was probably then
that Francisco Iardella and Carlo
Franzoni, brother of Giuseppe, were
engaged. The clock in Statuary hali
was begun by Franzoni and completed
by Iardella.
As the capitol neared completion a
larger number of artists was needed,
and most of them were brought over
from Italy. It was then, in 1823, that
Enrico Causici and Antonio Capelano,
pupils of Canova, arrived. The sculp-
tured portraits of Columbus, Raleigh,
Cabot and LaSalle, and the groups
representing the landing of the Pil-
grims, Pocahontas rescuing Capt. John
Smith, and some others are by them.
Valaperti, who was a man of some
prominence in his profession, algo
came over at this time.
In 1826, Luigi Persico arrived in
Washington. The large allegorical
group in the portico of the rotunda is
his and also the statues of War and
Peace on either side of the doorway.
At the foot of the west stairway there
is a bronze bust of a Chippewa chief
by Vincenti. There are also many
frescoes by Constantino Brumidi and
some by Castigni, the two having been
employed together on the large fresco
on the rotunda, illustrating in pseudo-
relief the periods In the history of the
continent. Brumidi, who painted many
of the frescoes in the Vatican at
Rome, as well as in the capitol in
Washington, came to America in 1849.
In 1853 he became a citizen, and in
31859 he was entrusted with the deco-
ration of the capitol.
James Fenimore Cooper.
James Fenimore Cooper, the first
American novelist to gain a reputa-
tion in Europe, studied at Yale, but
he was not a close student and in his
third year was asked to leave the
college. He then joined the navy,
where he gained knowledge and ex-
perience that he later used to make
his sea tales realistic. He married
and retired from the navy just be-
fore the War of 1812, engaging in
forming. One day, while reading aloud
an English novel, he boasted to his
wife than he could write a better novel
than many of those appearing at that
time. So he produced “Precaution,” a
commonplace story of English high
life, of which Cooper knew nothing.
Advised to turn to adventure in his
own country, he wrote “The Spy” in
1821 and published it at his own ex-
pense. On its appearance he was at
once recognized as a novelist of force.
In the twenty years that followed
he brought out many novels, including
those stirring sea tales, “The Pilot”
and “The Red Rover.” Among his
more popular books are the “Deer-
slayer,” “The Last of the Mohicans,”
“The Pathfinder,” “The Pioneer” and
“The Prairie.” Many consider “The
Last of the Mohicans” the best of the

Not all of the maple products pro-
duced in Canada are consumed by the
Canadian people. Take the year 1919
for which the statistics of exports in
detail are available. During that year
there were exported from Canada 4,-

a value of $1,062,805. Nearly all of
this went to the United States, name:
