SANG WITH PATRIOTIC FERVOR
@ritain. Owes Great Debt to Charice
Dibdin for His Work in Popu-
larizing the Navy.
Charles Dibdin did more to gain re-
cruits for the British navy in the na-
val war between France and England
than all of the press gangs combined,
and to him belongs the credit of typi-
fying the British sailor as a being of
reckless courage, generosity and sim-
ple-heartedness. He sang his patriotic
songs with a fervor which was cobD-
tagious and his notes were caught up
and repeated throughout the land, es-
pecially those which referred to Ad-
miral Nelson. For this the government
gave him a pension of £200 a year.
He was paralyzed about a year before
his death, which occurred July 25,
1814. The great mass of his songs,
however, are now forgotten, although
some of his operas still infrequently
are heard, and his melody and sweet-
ness are excelled by few. Dibdin
wrote a dozen novels, a history of the
stage and an autobiography. He was
the eighteenth child of a Southamp-
ton silversmith, agd his mother was
nearly fifty vears of age at his birth
in 1745. Dibdin’s parents designed
him for the church, but he “would
have none of the life of the cleric and
ran away to London to be near the
theaters. When only sixteen he man-
aged to bring out one of his opcras,
“The Shepherd's Artifice,” at Covent
Garden, the very theater which made
him musical director some years Ia:
DELVING INTO MOTHER EARTH
Man Has Gone Far Underground in
Search of Riches That She
For centuries man has been engaged
in burrowing his way deeper and
deeper into the crust of old Mother
Earth, in order to extract the minerals
which she hides beneath her surface..
A century ago 1,000 feet was thought
to be a stupendous depth -for any,
shaft; “for in those days there. were
no engines capable of pumping from
greater depths, and no system of ven-
tilation had been devised which would
make it possible to work in galleries
at a greater distance from the surface.
Coal pits over 3,000 feet deep are
pow fairly common in England, while
Belgium has two which exceed 4,000
feet in depth.
But coal is not-alone in having deep
pits. There is in Australia a silver
mine whose bottom is 8,500 feet below
the surface, while a gold mine at Ben-
digo, in Australia, has been sunk to
A famous Transvaal gold-mining
company is sinking & shaft which,
when complete, will measure more
than 7,000 feet.
The coming of age of the fifth earl
of Cawdor recalls the tradition of the
building of Cawdor castle, an ancient,
moat-surrounded castle approachable
only by a drawbridge, which is perched
upon 8 low rock overhanging the
bed of a rushing stream near the
town of Nairn. In a dream, SO it is
told, the founder of Cawdor castle
was commanded to load an ass with
gold, turn it loose, and follow it until
it rested and there build a castle. The
ass came to halt beneath the branches
of a hawthorn tree, so upon this spot
was built Cawdor castle. The trunk
of the hawthorn tree, with its roots
branching out beneath the floor and
its top penetrating the vaulted arch of
stone above still remains within the
tower to argue for the truth of the
story, and, in further allusion to the
picturesque legend, the Gaelic saluta-
tion to the roof-tree of the Thanes of
Cawdor is “Freshness to the hawthorn .
Breathing Under Water.
If a swimmer is three minutes under
water he 1s looked upon as 8 prodigy,
but M. Thooris, a French doctor, de-
clares that a man could remain half
an hour if he only knew how to handle
the carbonic acid in his system.
A man proved recently to a body of
medical experts and scientists that
it was possible to remain under water
and laugh at the audience surrounding
a 12-foot deep aquarium, eat cherries,
take out the stones, pull a wry face
when the cherry proves sour, and smile
when a pretty woman touched the
glass with a cigarette.
The secret of all this lies in using
a special method of natural breathing
ag soon as you are under water, to ex-
hale the carbonic acid gas. This
requires some practice. When this
is done you stop the nostrils, thereby
keeping off all inhalation.
Rid of the carbonic acid in the blood,
a man is able to remain much longer
The morning of December 17, 1919, |
the planets Mercury, Venus, Mars, Ju-
piter, Saturn and Neptune came into
alignment in the heavens; that is, all
the planets, with the exception of the
earth, lay in an approximate line with
the sun and all of them, except Uran-
us, were on the same side of the sun.
They were strung along in the same
plane and approximately the same
line, like so many points on one spoke
of a wheel. Meanwhile Uranus was
on the same line but on the other side
of the sun, like the point of the spoke
directly opposite. The arrangement
had been foretold by astronomers and
certain prognosticators predicted the
end of the world. However, the sun
rose as usual on that day and the
weather was Bormak
