Game Supply in State is Endangered.
“Ten million dollars worth of game
was killed in ten years in the State of
Pennsylvania and only $100,000 is
available each year for the purchase
of game,” said A. I. Wood, of the
State Game Commission, speaking at
the meeting of Izaak Walton League
in Jersev Shore.
Mr. Wood impressed those in at-
tendance with the importance of
game conservation in the State.
He stressed the value of control of
vermin, declaring that the cat is a
menace to wild life and all
at large should be shot. He instanced
the ravages perpetrated by skunks
and snapping turtles and other species
of vermin. Hawks and owls should
be exterminated, said Mr. Wood, but
there are two species of hawks and
five of owls that are protected. .
“More rabbits are killed each year
by automobiles than the State Game
Commission can get from other States
to replenish the supply,” he declared.
70 Men to Make a Needle.
The first needles used by any peo-
ple were thorns and pointed sticks.
They were used merely to punch holes
without drawing a thread after them.
Needles of bone and stone have been
found among relics of early civiliza-
tion. The first steel needles were
made in 1370. By the modern meth-
od of manufacture the steel wire is
cut into double lengths. Epes are
placed close together in the middle
and then they are filed in two. Most
of the work is in finishing and polish-
ing them. It takes just 70 men to
make a single needle. Each needle
has to go through 22 different pro-
cesses before it reaches its market-
able form. .
Gum for Germany.
American chewing gum is going to
help Germany pay her reparations.
To meet the European demand for
this country’s chief recreational pro-
duct a factory is to be established at
Frankfort, Germany, by American in-
terests. Germany, through its tax
on such commodities, will reap a share
of the profits from the enterprise.
Two things induce the starting of a
gum factory there; the high import
taxes leveled on chicle here and the
increasing demand throughout Europe
for chewing gum, which has been pop-
ular ever since it was introduced by
the American military and naval

Relics of Bronze Age
Unearthed in England
On a long slope of seemingly virgin
turf between the famous hills of Cis
bury and Chanctonbury, Sussex, Eng-
land, archeologists have unearthed a
site, abounding in evidences of occu-
pation, of what is known as a late
Bronze age village. Everywhere are
the signs of a peaceful, cultured
hamestead, pastoral, yet with many
of the luxuries of life brought about
by 400 years of Roman civilization,
and with every sign of this is a sign
of the destruction wrought by the
Saxon invader. The ground is lit-
tered with the Reman tiles, the
Roman tile nails, fragments of walls
that were once covered in the Roman
manner with colored distemper. Here,
in what was obviously the rubbish pit,
fragments put together make up a
perfect specimen of a wine cup of the
classic red Samian ware, delicately
ornamented with a pattern that orig-
inally came from classic Greece.
Here are fragments of the great
amphorae used by Romans for Iim-
porting wine. It should be noted that
pots made by these vanished Bronze
age people and the earliest of the
Celts would not stand fire, so to cook
their food they heated flint stones
and threw them into the water until
it boiled. It is a trick of savages
to this day. Once the turf is removed
the soil of the downs about these vil-
lages is strewn all over with millions
of flint stones bearing unmistakable
signs of having been made red hot
and then plunged into water.
Alterations Are Made
in Course of Years
Most people would think that the
word admiral is a typical English ex-
pression. Its origin, however, is Emir
el Bagh, which is Arabic for “Lord of
the sea.” The term cuptain comes to
us direct from the Latin caput, mea»
ing head.
The coxwain was originally the man
who pulled the after-oar of the cap-
tain’s boat, then known as the *“‘cock’s
boat.” Cock-boat itself is a corrup-
tion of the word coracle, a small round
boat used for fishing. Commodore is
nothing more than the Italian cop
mendatore, or commander,
Frequently we hear about “Davy
Jones.” There was, of course, no such
person, but should you speak of “Duf-
fy Jonah’s Locker,” you have the origi
nal phrase. Duffy is the West-Indiar
negro term for the spirit of Jonah.
The term “dog watch” is a corrup-
tion of “dodge” watch, the “dodge” be-
ing an arrangement to prevent men
from being on duty every day at the
same hours.
Restoring Old Castles
Ancient Durham castle, in England,
«8 disintegrating. The foundations
of this histeric pile were’ laid in
the year 1072 by Walthoef, earl of
Northumbria a favorite of William
the Conqueror. The earl was ap-
pointed to the bishoprie, and Durham
castle became the home of a succes-
sion of bishops each of whom left his
own additions and impress. upon the
castle. Towers, doorways, chapels.
kitchens were added by historic char-
acters who were owners of the castle
during the succeeding years, and all
have left their names upon the pages
of British history. Public subserip-
tions are supplementing the £15.000
set apart by the Durham city fathers.
and public sentiment is being aroused,
looking forward to the preservation
and restoration of this historic build-
ing, which is still in active use as a
Northern Ohio Indians
she Eries, for whom the lake was
named, were at one time the oc-
cupants of northeastern Ohio, us well
a3 of the whole southern shore of
Lake Erie from near the site of Buf-
falo to Sandusky bay. They were kin
of the Iroquois, but bitter enemies,
and it seems that about 1650 a merel-
less war broke out between them. The
Iroquois were superior in numbers
and organization, with the result that
they practically exterminated the Erie
nation, a few remnants of it being re-
ceived into other tribes. The lands
of the Eries were thus left largely in
possession of the Iroquois. They
were also occupied to seme extent by
more westerly nations — Ottawas.
Chippewas and Pottawattomies.
Located on “Fall Line”
The “fall line” is the boundary be
«ween the Atlantic coastal plain and
the Piedmont belt to the west, which
is marked by falls or rapids in most of
the streams, due to the fact that the
rivers can cut more rapidly in the soft
unconsolidated rock of the coastal
plain than the hard crystalline rocks
of the adjacent regions. In early
days the falls marked the head of
navigation for the coastwise trade, and
power is developed along the “fall
line,” to which is ascribed the location
of many cities, among them being
Washington, Richmond, Baltimore,
Philadelphia, Trenton, Columbia, Ma-
con and Montgomery.
Finish for Floors
Put one quart of turpentine in a
self-sealing jar. To this add four
ounces of finely cut beeswax. Adjust
the lid and set in the sunshine. Shake
it occasionally until beeswax is dis-
solved and it is the consistency of
thick cream. Apply with a small rag,
rubbing thoroughly into floors, and
polish with soft cloth after it Is dry.
It Is easy to apply and when once
used will never be discarded. It is
fine also for linoleums and painted
