Comprehensive Expression Concerning
One of the Greatest Problems
of Anthropology.
Dr. Ales Hrdlicka, the distinguished
American ethnologist, contributes to
the proceedings of the American Philc-
sophical society an Important paper
* on the peopling of Asia, which “consti-
tutes one of the greatest problems of
anthropology.” He concludes that the
cradle of humanity was essentially
southwestern Europe, with, later, the
Mediterranean basin, western Asia and
Africa. It is primarily from Europe
and secondarily from these regions
that the earth was peopled, and this
peopling was comparatively recent.
Early man was unable to people the
globe, owing to his insufficient effec-
tiveness, and until the end of glacial
times and his old stone culture he had
evidently all he could do to preserve
mere existence. Only an advance in
culture could enable him to control his
environment and secure a steady sur-
plus of births over deaths. The cause
of man’s peopling of the world was not
a mere wish to do so, but the necessity
arising from growing numbers and cor-
respondingly decreasing supply of food.
It was this which eventually led to ag-
riculture. This spreading over the globe
was conditioned by {hree great laws—
movement in the direction of least re-
sistance ; movement in the direction of
the greatest prospects; movement due
to a force from behind, or compulsion

White Pine Blister Rust an Enemy t¢
Be Combated by the Entire
Civilized World.
Giant white pines in Switzerland
that in 118 years have fought their
way to a height of 130 feet and more
are being killed by white pine blister
rust, and no effort is being made to
control the spread of the disease, ac-
cording to Dr. Perley Spaulding of the
United States Department of Agricul-
ture, who recently returned from an
eight months’ study of rust conditions
in Europe. Doctor Spaulding, who
made the trip to determine the ex-
tent of damage done to old trees and
to seek any new points in the life his-
tory of the disease, says that the
white pine blister rust has been
known in Switzerland since 1854, but
that it has been only within the last
ten years that it has spread to such
a state of destructiveness. The ur-
gent necessity of co-operating in the
attempt to control the spread of the
disease in the United States, he says,
will be better realized and facilitated
by lumbermen throughout this coun-
try when it can be pointed out to them
that the disease affects old trees ar
easily as young seedlings,

As Others See Us.
Our children probably give us the
truest glimpse of ourselves we ever
get. The other day May arranged her
entire family in a row in the big rocker.
There were assembled three rag dolls,
an unbreakable doll with a broken nose,
a drunken elephant and an armless
teddy bear. She placed herself before
them rigidly and wagged her finger up
and down.
“Don’ touch the baby's bottle. Don’
you dare,” she said In exaggerated
mimicry of me. “Did you hear mam-
ma?’ she exclaimed sharply. She
seized the elephant, spanked him
smartly and placed him back with a
decided thump.
“Dere, now young lady,” she said to
him severely. Then, after a moment's
silence, “Well, don’t cry. Mamma kiss
you, but you mus’ mind your mamma.”
Whereupon she took up the dis-
- graced elephant, kissed the injured
spot warmly and mothered him ten-
derly. Sie
I felt: humiliated, but was glad to
see she made it up with the disrepu-
table old thing.—Farm Life.
Honor System In Prisons.
One of Italian Premier Mussolini's
first actions on coming to power has
been the adoption for state prisons of
the “honor system” in vogue in Ore-
gon and other western American states
and which was once tried out at Sing
Mussolini is greatly impressed by
the success of the system as practiced
in America and has ordered that,
among other things, solitary confine-
ment be abolished in Italian peniten-
tiaries, and all prisoners be given a
chance to work on farms or in fac-
tories at stated wages.
These wages will be divided into
three parts, one of which goes to the
state, to form a fund for the better-
ment of prison conditions, a second
part to the party which suffered under
the crime for which the prisoner was
convicted, and the third part held in
trust by the authorities until the day
of the prisoner's discharge.
Italy is the first European country
to adopt the honor system.
Useful Radio Improvement.
A French trans-Atlantic steamship
company was the first to experiment
with the radiogonometer, invented by
Bellini and Tosi. By means of this
apparatus the direction of an invisible
vessel, sailing along a coast and emit-
ting wireless signals, can be deter-
mined from two stations on the shore,
and its course can be accurately
mapped. Conversely, a vessel fur
nished with a radlogonometer can de-
termine its place near a coast by ob-
serving the directions of the waves
coming from two wireless stations on
the shore, and can thus make its way
in a fog, when the coast lights are in-
visible.—~Washington Star.
Man Who Placed His Arm Around His
Fiancee in Theater Brought
Instantly to Book.
Love in a picture theater in Newark
[s not a bed of roses, as Peter Cate-
nacci, twenty-two years old, found the
other night when he put his arm over
the shoulder of his fiancee at the
show in a movie theater.
John J. Hickey, special officer in the
theater, suddenly saw the young couple
in that affectionate position, and was
“Take your arm off that girl!” he
shouted, so loudly that everyone in
the house turned from the screen to
the loving young couple.
“This girl is my flancee, and I have
my arm around her, because I love
her,” replied the unabashed Catenacci.
“So long as she doesn’t object I don’t
see what business it is of yeurs.”
“It is against the law to make love
in a theater,” declared the special offi-
cer. :
“I'm not making love to you,” was
Catenacel’s rejoinder, “so why should
you object?”
This piece of logic so infuriated the
conscientious preserver of law and or-
der in the theater that he arrested the
young man. Acting Police Judge
Guthrie freed Catenacecl, declaring he
felt incompetent to decide of what
“making love” consists.—Fromn a New
York Letter in the Pittsburgh Dis-
How Chinese Boys Make Money When
the Fish Are Known to Be in
the Hatching Season.
Earning pocket-money by selling
ampty eggshells is how many Chinese
boys add to their savings during the
fish-hatching season.
Fish hatching in China is often con-
ducted with the aid of a hen. First, the
fish spawn is collected from the wa-
ter. A quantity is placed In each egg-
shell, the open end of which is sealed
with a special kind of wax. This done,
the eggs are placed under sitting hens.
After the third or fourth day each
egg is tested. If the hatching is com-
plete the shells are broken, and the
spawn {is emptied into water and
placed in the sun's powerful rays.
Soon the little fish are strong
enough to be moved. Their next home
is in water a few degrees colder, and
this lowering of temperature goes on
until they can stand the cold water of
the lakes and streams.
The Chinese boy, Ly selling empty
eggshells, earns more money during
the hatching season than at any other
time of the year.
, Gave His Son Hard Jobs.
P. D. Armour, founder of Armour &
_Co., liked to pose as a rich man, it is |
said. He fiked the feel of money and
to give it away. He had 100 $1 bills
put on his desk each morning, and
before nightfall he usually managed
to get rid of them.
His son, J. Ogden Armour, has said
that he had no more choice in becom-
ing the head of Armour & Co. then
the prince of Wales in becoming the
king of England.
“To get the right kind of men we
begin early,” J. Ogden Armour said
about hiring office boys than about
anything else connected with the busi-
ness. For the office boys of today
will become our department managers
tomorrow.” "
His father having antipathy for
“soft” young men, put “J. 0.” in every
hard job. He has served in every de-
partment both at the stock yards and
in the office.
Eat Less, Live Longer.
The great majority of human ills
arise from overeating and lack of ex-
ercise and fresh alr, according to Jack
Taylor, the “scholar gypsy,” who
reached New York on his way to south-
ern California by way of the Atlantic
coast states, Florida, Louisiana, Texas
and Arizona, walking and camping all
the way.
Mr. Taylor, who is sixty-nine years
old, said that tén years ago he was a
commercial traveler whom the physi-
cians had given only a few months to
live. He determined to revolutionize
his habits, gathered together a camp-
ing outfit, and since that time has con-
fined himself to a diet of raw eggs and
corn meal, chocolate, raisins, rye bread
and molasses. Since he began his new
life he has walked 8,000 miles, lying
in the open and camping under the
stars. The average human being, he
says, eats far more than he should.
She Kept It Going.
Emphasizing the virtue of persist-
ence, Mrs. Kathleen Norris says, as
quoted in the Boston Advertiser:
“When my husband was a magazine
editor In 1910, a certain battered and
travel-worn story, a ngvelette, came
to his office and was immediately re-
jected. Two years later, when he was
on another magazine, the story re-
appeared. It was unchanged, the same
little child story of optimism and
hope. This second magazine pald a
small sum for it, and it was serial-
ized.”—From the Outlook,
Invention to Prevent Speeding.
In Rome the narrow streets and
steep hills render motoring rather pre-
carlous at best and there is no room
for the speed maniac. An automatie
regulator which will limit the speed
within the city proper is being seri-
ously considered. This invention de-
pends on a type of governor and is the
result of the inventive labors of
