HATS MADE AT NIGHT Sunshine Makes the Straw for Panamas Too Brittle to Work Genuine Panama hats are made in Ecuador to a larger extent than in any other country, and the process of manu facture is still not generally known. The chief centers of the hat industry in the order of their importance are Monticristi and Jipijapa, in the prov ince of Manavi; Santa Rosa and to a limited extent in Guayaquil and Cuen ca. Thousands of natives of both sexes are employed at weaving these hats. The work is carried on from, a little after midnight to 7 o'clock in the morning, while the atmosphere. is humid, for the strfcw becomes brittle during the day an 4 cannot then be handled. After much preliminary preparation the straw is very finely divided into the required -widths bv the nail of the little finger or thumb. A hunch of ptraw is bound in the middle and placed in the center of a wooden mold, the Htraws arranged radially and equally distant from each other in pairs. The ■plaiting begins at the apex of the crown ami continues round and round until the hat is finished, care being ta ken that 110 straws are added while tfhe crown is being made. Other straws, however, are added while the brim and border are being formed. On the de cree of nicety -with which the straws are lengthened depends the beauty and durability of the hat. Should a strand be broken it can be replaced and so plaited as not to be noticed. The finishing touches are put on by trimming the brim, edging the border and neatly fastening all projecting ends of the straws so as to be invisible. The hat is washed in clean, cold water, coated with a thin solution of gum and polished with dry sulphur.—Argonaut.

SAYS BOIRB WAS INTENDED FOR IDE ROCKEFELLERS Victims of New York Explosion Planned Deaths of John D. and Son, De clares Alexander Berkman, Who At tempted to Kill H. C. Frick Denver, Feb. 16.—The bomb that destroyed a Lexington avenue rooming house in New York last summer, killing three men, was intended for the assassi nation of John D. Rockefeller and his son. This was the statement made here yesterday by Alexander Berkman, an archist and 1. W. W. leader, who served a term in prison for his attempt to kill H, €. Frick. Berkman has been in Denver several weeks, being here to found a Ferrer school. Wheu Matthew A. Schmidt was arretted a few days ago in New York, charged with complicity in the destruc tion of the Los Angeles "Times" build ing and other dynamite outrages, the 'Bums detectives and Schmidt was one of the leaders in the plot to blow up the Rockefellers. Berkman yesterday declared lie would not say that Schmidt was one of the plotters, but he did give the naunes of four men who, lie said, were making the bombs, throe of them having lost their lives at the timo.of the explosion. The fourth man, an Irishman, whom Berkman knew only as Murphy, w»» Mown through the front of the building ami landed in a network of telegraph wires, liually reaching the ground un hurt. Plotted in Spirit of Vengeance "The plot against the lives of the Riockefelllers,'' said Berkman, "was originated in a spirit of vengeance for th» brutality visited upon the 1. W. W. worker- at Tarrytown last summer, when we went up there to protest against the outrages that brought on the battle of Ludlow. It was hatched by the conspirators after free speech had been virtually cut off bv the ac tivity of the Rockefeller guards and shortly before Rockefeller took perma nent refuge in his Forest Hill home at Cleveland. "Prior to the elder Rockefeller's flight to Cleveland there had been sev eral big demonstrations in front of his office at 26 Broadway, which Rockefel ler had finally sought to avoid by re maining behind the walls of liis estate at Tarrytown, N. V. "'About twenty-five or thirty anarch ists, among them the man named Mur phy, Arthur Caron, iMivtthew Kahn. Charles Berg and myself all of whom had participated in the demonstration in New York City, followed him there. As is well known now. we literally laid a siege to the Rockefeller place," with the result that both the father and the son employed an army of guards to protest them. They had about 250 spe cial officers to perform this duty, arc.l old John D. even had another wail built around his property. "With all approaches to the Rocke feller plaice cut off. we then commenced to make public speeches against the Rockefellers on the street corners, at the gates of his guarded estate and wherever we got a chance. This method of procedure led to a campaign of re pression and finally to a brutal attack upon the meimoers'of our organization. Several of them were terribly beaten, among them Caron and Kalin, both ardent young men. It was this attack evidently that determined those men upon seeking personal vengeance upon the Rockefellers. But thev took no one into their confidence except Murphv and Berg, as far as I know. I did not know anything of their plans until after the bomb had exploded. Wanted to Kill Both at Once "When they were driven out of Tar rytown, Murphy. Berg. Caron and Kahn went back to New York. "They rented an apartment there, at Lexington avenue and One Hundred and Thirty-third street, and there be gan the manufacture of the bomb that was meant for the Rockefellers. ''They had no definite idea when they would use it, but it was their plan to wait for an op;ortunity ami hurl it into the carriage or automobile of the Rockefellers whenever they should at tempt to leave the grounds' of the Tar rytown estate. They wanted to get both of them together, if possible, but would have taken the life of either one. I do not know what their bomb was made of, but the damage it did when it burst prematurely won I, I seem to indicate that they made it as deadly as they could. According to the state ments since made to me by Murphy, they had the bomb almost finished when it exploded, killing Kahn. Caron and Berg, .the three who were nearest to it at the time.''

Heat, Humidity and Working Power What constitutes a vitiated atmo sphere, and wherein are the depressing effects of "bad" aid' to be found? Of late, temperature an,l humidity rather than abnormal quantities of "the re spired gases, carbon dioxid and oxygen, or the presence of harmful expired or ganic products of respiration, have been held responsible for the untoward consequences of living under conditions of poor ventilation. Drs. Lee ati'l Scott, of the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University, have recently reported definite cbjective signs erf physical inefficiency in individ uals subjected to an atmosphere of high humidity and high temperature. Measurements were made on the work ing capacity, that is, the .total amount of work which excised muscles of ani mals are capable of doing before ex haustion sets in. The subjects were kept, to cite a specific illustration, at 21 C. (69.8 F.), with an approximate humidity of 54 per cent., in one case, and at 33 C. (91.4 F.), with a humidity of 89 per cent., in the other. The con trasts here quoted represent the dis tinctions beitween comfortable atmo spheric conditions and the air of a hot, humid summer day. As an outcome there was a marked diminution in both the amount of work performed and the period of working power under the in fluence of high temperature and itv. Under these conditions, further more, the body temperature also rose someiwlia't. The facts thus cited in the opinion otf "The Journal of the Ameri can Medical AJsociation" confirm by the unbiased testimony of direct ex periment whait • the sensations and psychic responses of man h^velong since intimated.
