Odd Contradictions in
- Famous German Writer
Made miserable by fundamental con-
tradictions in character, Heinrich
Heine, a genius best remembered for
his poems, cried: “I am tragedy—I
am comedy.” Though he was prob-
ably the greatest German poet of his
century, the author of “The Lorelei”
was constantly appalled by the vast
ness of his vision and sought a firmer
footing on other paths of expression.
When he could curb his poesy he was
a splendid journalist.
While he hated despotism he was
an ardent admirer of Napoleon. As
a cynic his laughter still is remem-
bered for its hilarity at sentiment, yet
he was such a sentimentalist that his
spurned love for his cousin gave ex-
quisite wings to many a poem. He
wrote history without method and
philosophy with no crystallized phil-
osophy of his own. The capricious
quality that pervades all his writings
lurks in even his tenderest poems. He
shifts from Intense passion to careless
His life, until his invalidism, was
one agony of being jerked from poesy
to materialism and back again. Yet
when he was made helpless by paral
ysis this strange man of contradic
tions, who had been impatient and
irritable in health, showed an extraor-
dinary endurance and cheerfulness in
the long years he spent on what he
termed his “mattress grave.” He died
in 1856 and lies buried in Paris.—

Odd Form of “Prayer”
Brought Needed Rain
Desperate after a month of drought
im what was supposed to be the rainy
season, the peasants in Changhsintien
recently dressed up two men like fish
and marched them down the street.
pouring water on them all the way.
This is a new method of praying for
it worked, too! For that night Pe
king and neighboring towns were
drenched in a frightful storm. Noth
ing like it is ever seen in New York.
A peculiar sort of lightning, flashing
continuously here and there and ev-
erywhere, and thunder keeping up a
constant “put-putting” sound feature
the storm. Lakes come into existence
everywhere. The storm seems some-
how symbolic of the approach of
threatening nationalist troops.
Strangely, the Pekingese prayed fou
rain in earnest, too. In White Cloud
temple, outside Hsipienmen temple.
and at Hsiszu Pailou, coolies. old
men and priests burned beasts and
bowed incessantly. They followed the
ancient rain-praying rites.
But the inhabitants of Changhsin
tien zre believed to have found a new
niethod of rain praying in the fish
paride. People. in Peking had not
heard of it before—Brooklyn Eagle.
A:aimals’ Color Sense
Ihe colorful world of green grass
and trees, red meat, brownish-gray
mice and yellow dogs is all just gray
to cats, according to Prof, F. M. Gregg
of Nebraska Wesleyan university, who
experimented with the color sche
of unight-prowling animals. Dogs and
raccoons also luck color perception
he finds. In his experiments the ani
mals were taught to recognize various
color combinations, They learned that
when certain colors were shown they
could come up and expect to be fed.
When shades of gray corresponding in
brightness to the different colors were
substituted for the brilliant rainbow
hues, the animals apparently noted no
change in the dinner signals. The
dog, a fox terrier, was quickest to
learn, the cat next, and the raccoon
the slowest of all,
Vital Part of Tree
fhe stem of a tree, also called truna
and bole, is the main axis extending
from the roots to the crown, or to
the tip in case of an unbranched stem.
Tree stems range from long to short.
straight to crooked, and from erect
to prostrate. An examination of
cross-section of a stem will show bark.
wood, and pith, says the American
Tree association, In the central pari
of the stem is the pith. About it is
the wood, which in many trees can be
divided into the darker heartwood and
the lighter sapwood. Between the
wood and the bark is a thin layer
known as the cambium. This is the
most vital part of a tree, for it is
here that all new wood and bark are
made up.
Death to Mosquitoes
£fforts to find a poison that will kil
the mosquito larvae and not harm fish
have been successful! in France. Here:
tofore all poison designed to spread
over breeding places of mosquitoes has
been harmful to other life, but the
new compound will not only spare the
fish, but will be harmless to aquatic
plants or warm-blooded animals, it is
claimed. It is a formaldehyde com.
pound that can be applied with sand
Dark Rubber Lasting
for rubber articles that are likely
to be exposed to sunlight, rubber of
the darkest color will stay “alive” the
longest. Recent experiments In the
rubber laboratory of the United States
bureau of standards, reported by Pop
ular Science Monthly, have demon
strated that the shade of rubber goods
has much to do with thelr durability

- Many people think that a train Is
kept on the rails by the flange or rim
that 1s on the inside edge of the
wheel. This flange steadies the car,
but does not keep it on the rails. The
rail is slightly rounded on top, as is
the rim of the car wheel, so that the
wheel does not rest squarely on the
rail. The outer circumference of the
wheel is smaller than the inner and
the wheel rests on the inner slope of
“the rounded rail. In running the
wheels press outward because it is
easier for them to run along the
smallest edge and on top of the rail
By pushing outward and exerting the
same force in opposite directions the
wheels keep each other balanced and
on the rails.
Germ-Proof Upholstery
Odors of such common plants as
cloves, thyme, wild verbena, geranium
and cinnamon will protect automobile
upholstery against germs, an English
expert has discovered, Upholstery in
which quantities of the plants have
been mixed remains germ-proof for
eighteen months to two years.
He found that the odor of cloves
would kill microbes in thirty-five min
utes, while cinnamon killed some
species In twelve minutes. The es
sence of chnnamon was fatal, he
claims, to typhoid-fever bacteria after
twelve minutes.—Popular Mechanics
