TO BE DIFFERENT
Santa's Pack Will Contain Most
Wonderful Toys Ever Seen.
IMPORTS OF $20,000,000.
Quantity of Playthingo Received From
Abroad Has Been Rapidly Increas
ing, While Only About $1,000,000
Worth Aro Shipped From America.
Santa Claus has been very busy for
the past year in order that children in
tho United States may have a happy
and a merry Christinas, Never in the
history of tho "little old man with the
red, jovial face" bus he made such
preparations for Christmas.
According to a report from the de
partment of commerce, toys to the val
ue of more than $20,000,000 were Im
ported into the United States during
tho last fiscal year. This is tho Inr
gest yenr's importation of toys on rec
ord. Tho value of the toys is sot by
tho wholesale in tho lands from which
they were sent, which means that the
figure they will sell for In the United
States is fur in excess of ?20,000,000.
In 1S03 the toys brought into this
country were valued nt ?3,000,O00, and
tho Ogure'lias been growing with each
succeeding year until it has reached
the great amount just announced. Tho
total value of dolls imported in tho
.fiscal year 1013 was ,?1,500,000.
Germany is by far the largest source
of supply for toys imported into this
country, the value during the llscal
year being nearly 7,000,000.
Exports of toys from tho United
States amount to less than $1,000,000
a year. Most of those aro sent to
English speaking countries.
Toys will bo no dearer this year than
formerly. With ono exception the tar
iff udtnits them into this country nt
tueir old figure. Dolls dishes mnv be
n Ilttlo bit more expensive.
Santa's Pack Altogether Different.
Young America this year demands
everything up to date In toy line.
No more do girls care nbout tho little
rag doll and the Ilttlo wooden bed in
which to "put it to sleep." This year
young milndy demands doll furniture
mado of mahogany and In old colonial
and Jacobean styles. Also sho wants
a doll house electrically lighted and
fitted up with everything that goes in
a well appointed honse, oven to n front
doormat and an electric doorbell.
And tho boys! No more do they find
pleasure in the old hook and lsdder
and tho drum. Those things take a
back shelf In tho toy store, while moro
modern toys, sncli ns locomotives In
the forms of pnshmohllcs, complete
railroad systems eqnlpped with banjo
signals and blinking electric lights on
tho tall end of tho trains.
Observation cars, refrigerator cars in
which tiny pieces of ice can be put,
dairy cars and giant mogul engines,
with real oil cups on tho driving
wheels, nro to bo found in Santa Claus'
stock this year.
And the girl of nine or ten years,
who is tho recognized boss in every
American household, is tired of her
last year's doll with the flaxen curls,
tho go to sleep eyes nnd the Impassive
face. Tills year, If sho is fortunate,
sho will get a doll' that can hardly
bo told from a real baby.
Theso dolls are mado in Germany,
and before they find their way to tho
counters of tho American toy shops
they go through a lengthy and expen
sive process. To begin with, sculptors
aro employed by the toymakins firms
In Germany to model children. Theso
sculptors go forth into tho city and
country nnd get physically perfect chil
dren to pose for them, noil nnd, Ger
many, Frnnce, Denmark and Sweden
aro ransacked for theso ilttlo models.
It is a hard task to find tho just right
model. Hut occasionally a sculptor
does find one, and then ho models'hls
Ilttlo subject even down to tho dlinplo
in his or her chin, nd goes back to. tho
factory, nnd in a short time models of
real live babies aro being turned out
hy tho thousand.
Theso finished products look so life
like that ono expects them to talk.
Tho coloring on tho faco is perfect, and
the rolls of fat on tho chubby faco aro
not forgotten by tho sculptor.

A NEW LAW IN PHYSICS?
Professor Nipher Thinks It Will Rev
olutionize Power Machinery.
Francis E. Nipher, professor of phys
ics at Washington university, in St,
Louis, discovered what ho says is a
now law In physics, which ho thinks is
likely to- load to great changes In the
principles of construction or power ma
chinery. Tho alleged discovery is that on cm
Incline of from 45 to CO degrees more
power Is required to propel' an object
on tho surface than would be required
to lift It outright Tho explanation! is
that nt on incline between- tho degrees
mentioned the frictlonal resistance
makes tho load heavier than Its dead
Nipher had been lecturing
before the sphomoro engineering class
nnd had been using formulas. After
ward, in looking over tho formulas, ho
says, ho found that while the resist
ance up to -15 degrees and nbovo CO
flegrees is less than tho dead weight
between thoso points it is greater with
the maximum resistance between El
nnd CO degrees.
Ho mado further Inquiries and found
that so far ns ho could discover noth
ing had been known of tho law before.
IIo said ho had not hud time to think
out tho bearings of tho discovery, but
he had no doubt that it would have a
revolutionary effect in tho construction
of machinery built to overcome fric
