JEROME LOWDEN We are happy to say that Mr. Lowden will be back with us in a few days after several weeks’ absence through illness. MATHEMATICALLY SPEAKING DID YOU KNOW- ‘■ ' 1 hat it would take one person three weeks to count one million onc-dollar hills?? —nice work, thotiKh if you etiuhl get it! Tliat King Henry 1 decreed, the distance from the end of his nose to the end of his thuinl was the lawful yard?” That, in (lerinaiiy, in the sixteenth century, the rod was measured thus: Stand at the iloor of a church on a .Sunday, and hid sixteen men to stop, tall ones and small ones, as they happen to pass out of .service; then make them put their leH feet one behind the other and the length thus obtained shall be a right and lawful rod?” That the answer to ((•))•)• would take one man over a liundred years to write down and would he a number over one thousami miles long? ■■ ' I ' hat .some of the early Egyptians represented the number lOt) by a drawing like a corkscrew—and the number l.tMKI.tKMI by a drawing of a man looking sur¬ prised—ami that .some Indians said 21 by saying ‘one’ on the hand of another Indian? That in the manufacture of some automobile parts. Johaunsou blocks are used, which make possible meas¬ urements of one-millionth of an inch, which is finer than one-thousandth of a h air? That an army of one million men marching three abreast would more than reach from Windsor to Chicago in l would take more than three days to march past any point? “GYPPED” BY THE INDIANS Long ago the Dutch bought Manhattan Island from the Indians for $24 and a bottle of whiskey. If the $24 iiatl been investi.-d at compound interest, it would amount by now to four bilhon dollars and Manhattan Island is valued at three billion, eight hundred million dollars. I have so built my house, writes Professor Po| off. that the windows on all four sides face south. The Great Pyramid (about the size of Kennedy grounds and stadium) took 100,(MK) workmen 30 years to build. Over 2,()()(),(K)() blocks of stcnie averaging two and a half tons were used. The roofs of the chambers were granite blocks 27 feet long and 4 feet thick weigh¬ ing 54 tons each and these were transported from a rpiarry 60t) miles away and (ilaced in their position over 200 feet above the ground. ' 1‘he largest existing obelisk (a single tapering stone pillar) f|uarried about 1,5(X) B.C., was 105 feet long, nearly 10 feet sipiarc at the larger end and weighed about 4.10 Ions. It was set up in front of the Temple of the Sun at ritebes. —Mr. Lowden. THE CHEMISTRY OF WOMAN Kl HT Ilfs NOTK—Owing In llir eiiMSliint ileiniinil frniii stiiileiilH for seienlll ' le iiitnrniiitinii regai ' illng the Imtile eheinleui niake-nn nf uniiiuii, we herewith lire.sent the tniiowing article liy II. I ' harirnek. H.Se.. in The Itueheinr. ' I ' he tlemcnt called Woman is a member of the htiiiian family and has been assigned the chemical symbol of Wo. The accepted atomic weight is 120, although a number of isotoiies have been identified, having weights ranging frtim y5-4(R), Occurrence—It is abundant in nature and fotiinl both free and combined, usually associated with Matt. That fouml in one ' s own locality is iirefcrred. Physical Properties —A number of allotropic forms have been observed, their density, transparency, hard¬ ness. colour and boiling-iioints varying within wide limits. The colour exhibited by many siiecimens is a surface phcnomenoii, and is usually due to closely adhering powder. It has been found that an unpolished specimen teinls to turn green ' in the iircseiice of a highly polished one. The boiling-point for some varieties is (|uite low, while others are likely to freeze at any moment .Ml varieties melt under proper treatment. The taste varies from sweet to very bitter, ileiiending upon environment and treatment. Chemical Properties—Wo absorbs, witbout dissolving, in a number of liipiiils, the activity being greatly increased by alcohol. Seemingly unlimited (piantities of expensive fo id can also be ab.sorbed. Some varieties catalyse this food into fat in accordance with the formula PV:=nRT. Many naturally-occurring varieties are highly’ magnetic. In general, the magnetism varies inversely with the cube of it.s age. Some varieties tend to form . nne-inns. others Cat-ions. Their ionic migrations vary widely. .All vari¬ eties exhibit a great affinity for .Ag. .An, and Pt, and for precious stones both in the chain and ring struc¬ tures. The valence towards these substances is high and its study is complicated by the fact that its residual valence is never satisfied. .Many stable and unstable unions have been described, the latter in the daily iiress. Some varieties are highly explosive, and are exceedingly ilangcrous in inexperi¬ enced bands, in general, they tend to explode spon¬ taneously when left alone by man. The application of pressure to different specimens of Wo produces such a variety of results as to defy the (irinciples of Le Chatelier. L ' ses—Highly ornamental, wide aiiplication in the arts anil flomestic sciences, .Acts as positive or negative catal ’st, as the case may be. I’seful as a tonic in the alleviation of suffering, sickness, low s| irits, etc., etc. Efficient as a cleaning agent. aiid as an eipializer of the distribution of wealtb. It is probably the most power¬ ful (income) reducing agent known.

To a stranger they woulil have looked niitch like all the other girls in the school. They both wore .skirts and sweaters and saddle shoes, hut the name-hrooch that each wore woidd have made clear, even to a stranger, that their names were Judith and l.inda. Judy, will you? said l.inda insistently. Will I what? asked Judy slowly. Oh, Judy, stop staring out of that window and come hack to earth. I have asked you three times if you will trailc one of your sandwiches for mine. Just what are you thinking ahoiit. that ' s so ahsorhing?” l.inda asked. Judy put one of her sandwiches on Liniia ' s (ilate and took one of Linda ' s in return. 1 was thinking. she answered, that nothing hu|i| cns here—nothing important I mean. I ' d even welcome something sad. if it would break this monotony. The worst of it is, it isn ' t just us—it ' s the whole school. Nothing happetis to atiyhody here. Khoda Woods was seventeen and in fourth form. She usually hiirrieil home from school hut tonight she loitered at her locker. She didn ' t have to sort out her hooks. She wouldn ' t need any more hooks at school, hecatisc she wasn ' t coming hark Khoda ' s father had died five years before. Kver since then, her mother had been doing housework and sewing to kee|) Khoda and her younger brother and sister clothed and fed. This was becoming harder and harder as the children grew older; hut now. Khoda had been offered a job, and they all knew that this would make things so tnttrh easier for all of thetn. . s she walked home, Khoda tried to think about her new job. but somehow she just couldn ' t het| thinking of schrol. She remembered the haskethall games that she ha l played, and watched. She retiiemhercd the way shivers always ran up ami down her back when they jdayed the school song. That was because the song made her feel part of the school. Hubbard was a won¬ derful |)lace to he (lart of—but she wasn ' t a part of it atiy longer. The thought made things bmk a little misty. That ' s why 1 like to read. Judy. Linda continued. Things happen in books that never haiipen here. I even like hooks where everything turns out wrong, where the |ieoi)le have nothing hut trouhle. That ' s because nobody here ever has any trouble, Judy said with the wisdom of her sixteen year . The most serious thing that anyone here has to worry about is getting her Geometry done during noon hour.’’ Linda laughed as she said; Kven that gets tiresome day after day.

The boys liavc been iiractising for almost a week now. It Iikiks as though we are going to have a good team this year, and it will look even better when you get out there. You’re the only one of our last year ' s stars left, and I guess you know how the team, how the whole school, in fart, is counting on you. .Mr. Koherts. the Gym. Instructor, knew a great deal about these hoys he taught and he expected to see that half-i roud, half-embarrassed grin s|)read over Paul ' s face. He was more than a little surprised to see the hoy look down sadly, and to see that his hands were clencheil into tight fists. He knew, even before the hoy s| oke, that he had touched a sore spot. He motioned the boy to sit down. That ' s just what 1 wanted to see you about, Mr. Koherts. The hoy hesitated. ' I ' m—I ' m not going to iday football this year. He stoiiiied. not knowing how to go on. The Teacher started. What! Why you have been on the team for four years. You ' re our best | layer now, and—well, Paul. I know that you like the game. You had belter tell me what made you come to such a decision.” The hoy began reluctantly at first, hut gaining con¬ fidence as he went on. It’.s like this sir.
