Car Scientific Breeding
. Produce Men of Genius?
Muman geniuses must be bred as
gace horses by. combining “carefully
selected “pedigreed ‘ stock,” the presi-
dent of the Eugenics Research assocl-
ation said at a meeting of the organi-
zation in New York. Whether that 1s
true of the future or not no one knows
It has not been true in the past.
Physical development may be SO in-
fluenced, and morons may be the de-
scendants of morons. But genius and
leadership appears in so many unex-
pected places and persons that we are
unable to draw any diagram or ar
range a plun whereby we can piot
their creation. One genius may come
out of a family which prodnces others
of no account. Yet the brilliant iv-
tellect and the lazy nit-wit possessed
the same parents.
Eugenists may prove that certain
families over several generations have
produced only mental defectives, while
other families have given society a
high grade of superior intelligence.
But there are often exceptions to up-
hold or break the rule.
Bui genius is hard to trace. We do
not know why one man becomes a
great leader or a wonderful engineer.
It may be heredity, or environment,
or education, or what? That man
must continue to advance through eve
lution and better breeding is undoubt-
edly true, but that we can create a
genius by planning is yet to ve proven
No age has seen so many geniuses us

whatever to do with the manufacture
of this wealth of brains.—Miami Her-

Europe's Longest River
The word Volga is the nawe of the
longest river in Europe. It rises on
the Valdai Plateau, south eof Lenin-
srad, former capital of Russia, and
it flows in a southeasterly direction
and then south across Russia. and
empties into the northern part of the
Caspian sea at Astrakban. lis total
length is 2,310 miles, and it Jdrains an
area of H85,000 square. miles. It pos-
sesses only a slight and gradual fail,
and this is excellently adapted for
pavigation. In spring floods the wa-
ters at certain parts are from ten to
. thirteen niles across. The river is ice-
free from 193 to 260 days each year.
Scottish Kilt
The kilt is part of the characteris
tie and ancient dress of the natives
of the highlands of Scotland. The
word means that which is girded or
tucked up. It is of Scandinavian ori-
gin, The Danish word kilte, in use to-
day, means to tuck up. The: kilt of
the highlander is short but has a very
full skirt, belted in at the waist. and
reaching to about the knees. The early
kilt was not a separate garment, but
merely the lower part of the plaid in
which the Highlander wrapped him-
self, hanging down in folds below the
Letter Oddly Addressed
Every post office employee has ex-
perienced troubles with performing the
work of delivering letters owing to the
obscure or insufficient directions in-
scribed upon missives passing threugh
their hands. The postmaster of South-

this one recently: “To the Chemical

Rabbit Was Traveler
The driver of a motor car in Switz:
erland tells the story of the astonish-
ing speed and long-sustained effort
which a rabbit is capable of. He hap
pened to start one, which on its flight
kept to the road. In order to keep up
with the rabbit, the man had to speed
up to 34 miles an hour, and the sturdy
little creature held out for over a
league before it finally jumped into a
ditch by the roadside.

Are you approaching forty? Beware !
Becween the ages of forty “and sixty

Humble Cow Looked On
as Evidence of Wealth
In the early centuries the cow was
looked upon as a source of wealth as
well as food. One of the first words
for money was “pecunia,” from the
Greek word “pecus,” meaning caitle
or herd, and the first coins made iu
Greece and Rome were stamped with
the cow’s head.
Another interesting connection be
tween cattle and gold is found in the
story of the discovery of gold in Cali
fornia. People came overland by pack
train, around the isthmus of Pana,
and in sailing vessels around the Horn.
More people meant more cows and to
meet the growing demand, large num
bers of cows were brought from Ken
tucky and England. In the early min
ing days these sold for $300 to $Hw
a head—so a cow was almost as good
as a gold mine.—Kansas City Times

- Probably’ Feryent ‘Wish
On a shore-bound train recently the
Stroller sat behind a fussy old lady.
The seat! in: front of the: woman was
occupied by a gentleman who had bie
window open,
“] wish that man would shut his
window, my hair is blowing around
something awful,” she remarked to a
woman in the seat beside her.

Cleaning Plaster Statues
When plaster statues have become
dingy and dusty first give a thorough
brushing and dusting. Take a good
quality of white or cream colored
paint and make it thin with turpen-
tine. Apply this to the statue with
great care so that no paint settles in’
the crevices to impair the modeling.
The statue can then be kept clean by
wiping carefully with a wet cloth.
Many statues in the Corcoran Art gal-
lery, Washington, are treated in this
Wind Sways Skyscrapers
Strong gusts of wind against tah
steel buildings cause the structures to
sway and vibrate, tests have shown.
According to reports, two of the tall
est buildings in New York city bend
as much as six inches at the top of
their towers, three inches in either di-
rection from the neutral fixed position,
says Popular Mechanics Magazine,
Designers of a tall building soon to be
built in Chicago allowed for a sway
of two inches in either direction.
Language Peculiarities
English has twenty-six alphabet let-
ters, twenty-one for consonants and
five for vowels. English has soma
forty-four sounds, twenty-four conso-
nantal and twenty vocalic. To repre-
sent these forty-four sounds in speli-
ing, English has well over 400 separate
orthographic combinations, making an
average of ten possible spellings per
sound. What can you do with lan-
guage like that? And yet there is a
charm about it.—Janet Rankin Aiken,
in the Bookman.

Opal Superstition
The opal has not always been re-
garded as an unlucky stone. The
superstition regarding its bad luck he-
gan in the Fourteenth century at the
time of the Black death, particularly
in Venice. At that time the opal was
a favorite of the Italian jewelers, hut
it was said that opals worn by those
stricken with the disease became sud-
denly brilliant and that their lusiee
departed upon the death of the owner.
Thus the opal became associated with
death and un object of dread.
