rivers and lakes in all parts of ;
country, bear Indian names, but &
small number only of the towns that
are the work of the white man have
adopted names borrowed from the
original owners of the land. Not one,
in ten, it is claimed, of the 150 large

have left their racial mark.

Dutchman is pretty clear. The French
influence in northern New York and
Vermont and along the line of the
Great lakes {Is familiar in many
names. Mississippi has no “saints”
fn its list, whereas across the river
Louisiana, by nine parishes and many
towns, rivers and lakes, perpetuates
the religious tenets of its early fa-
thers. Kentucky and Tennessee evi-
dence the vocabulary of the hunter
and trapper, Montana and Idaho that
of the miner. All the region acquired
from Mexico, particularly southern
California, maintains in its place
names the memory of its Spanish ex-
plorers and settlers. There are rela-
tively few Indian names on the Pa-
cific coast, strange to say. North of
the Spanish belt cupes and towns fre-
quently reflecy the loyalty of early set-
tlers to the older states of the Union;
for example, Portland, Ore, which
was named after Portland, Maine.
The story is that two settlers to whom
the task of selecting a name for the
Oregon settlement fell were eastern-
ers, and that they tossed a coin to de-
termine whether the town should be
called Boston or Portland.
Nature’s Kindness to
People of Green Isle
Among other benefits of being an
irishman there is to be listed, it is
asserted, an ability to break one’s
bones with relative impunity, as com-
pared with Englishmen or persons of
other races. :
At a recent corouner’s inquest a.
Camberwell, England, Dr. Reginald
Larkin, a police surgeon familiar with
accident cases, took occasion to report
his experience that broken bones of
the Irish heal more rapidly and
strongly than similar fractures, the
victims of which are English; thus
justifying, perhaps, the [rishman’s tra-
ditional preference for the shillalah.
a plaything relatively harmless to his
In all animals the repair of broken
pones is the duty of millions of tiny
living cells which accumulate at the
iplace where the bone is broken and
cement the severed ends together with
stiff. cartilagelike tissue which then
islowly hardens into bone by deposit
‘of compounds of 1ime.—Baltimore Sun.

on Electric Current?
Ys love simply the result of ‘elee-
trical attraction? Is the human body
an electric battery and our life, ener-
gy, and vitality dependent on how
strong a current we create?
A doctor has stirred up tremendous
discussion by declaring that chemical
activity in the cells of the human
body produces electricity, that His
electricity maintaing the life process,
and that lack of it finally causes
He believes the human current
a great influence over all our a
tions, including love, and thinks his
may explain why certain people are
atracted to one another, or vice
A famous electrical expert says:
“We have never isolated this current.
and the laws of electrophysiology
are not well known, but we have
many proofs that this current exists.
The body produces electricity in a
score of different ways. At every
muscular contraction or irritation of
a nervous center there are vibra
tions that liberate thls mysterious
power. :
“The least movement of a muscle
produces electricity. For every heart-
beat there is a corresponding oscil-
lation of the galvanometer needle.”
Durability of Leather
Shown by Recent Find
. The durability of leather was proved
by the discovery, in the course of ex-
cavating for the foundations of the
new Bank of England, of soles of
Roman shoes, one of which bore clear-
ly the impress of the official Roman
The soles evidently were those of
| the sandals worn by women and chil-
dren. Bronze rivets were used to hold
together two or three thicknesses of
leather and no doubt accounted in
part for the life obtained from the
footwear, which must have been much
greater in weight than present-day
shoes. The old leather was in about
the same state of preservation as
might be expected of a modern shoe
that had been on a rubbish heap for
a couple of months.
Although nowadays leather is pro-
duced with more speed and less me-
chanical erudity, the processes of pre-
serving, toughening, and softening it
are not materially different from
those practiced by the Romans in
England about 2,000 years ago.
Perfect Mother-in-Law
She has a marvelous talent for tim-
ing her visits. She always arrives the
day you need her and never stays a
day too long. She always brings cheer
and helpfulness and a big basket of
things ‘from the old farm... She gets |
along beautifully with her sons and
daughters-in-law. She knows how to
please her grandchildren without spotl-
ing them #nd ruining their digestions, | “°°
She knows how and when to write a
check and when to make beaten bis-
cuit and fry a chicken. She has per-
fect health and a young mind. She i#
the perfect mother-in-law.
There is always the chance that you
will get her it you marry often enough.

Peculiar State of Mind
“It may be a complex, a phobia, or
a neurosis,” said the street-car rider,
“but there’s just one thing on my
mind when I take an open car. I usu
ally sit on the back seat, or on an in-
side end seat. In either place I have
a good view at the slot which pro-
tects the live wire in the street
below. I've been tossing my ciga-
rette butts at the slot, wondering
if they'd ever go in. It’s really be
come an obsession, since they never
seem quite to make it. I'm meditating
getting off and pushing one in some
time. so I'll be able to get my mind
on other matters while 1 ride”—

Nation's Fur-Bearers ;
Among the states producing the
most fur-bearing animals it is prob-
able that Louisiana ranks highest on
account of its large muskrat catch.
Martens appear most plentiful in
Northwestern states. Minks are plen-
tiful throughout the wooded areas of
this country where trapping has not
been carried on extensively. Blue
foxes do not occur wild in the United
States. Red foxes are common
throughout the greater portion of this
country, most of them being in the
Northern wooded regions. Fishers
are found almost exclusively in the
Northern states where civilization has
not disturbed their haunts.
No Easy Task
English is one of the wost difficult
languages in the world to master, ac
cording to a young Frenchman, whe
is studying auto mechanics in a De
troit factory. “American tourists
abroad protest against the ‘unreason-
ableness’ of the French language but
consider - your own,” be said. Ord}
narily you. pronounce the suffix ‘ough’
with a long ‘0’ sound. But when you
place an ‘r’ before it, getting ‘rough,’
you say ‘rf’ Then when you make
ft ‘through’ you say ‘thru’ It's al
most too much for me.”
