Salt Lake City, Utah.—Commercial production of gold has declined tre- mendously In recent years In this sec- tion of the mineralized West, but the old-(1 me prospector, working on his own, Is taking wealth from its hidden recesses In ever-Increasing sums. The Salt Lake City assay office, a branch of the Unltod States mint, Is a clearing house for much of the inter- mountain gold. Similar offices are lo- cated at Boise, Idaho; Helena, Mont; and Carson City, Nev. Production Drops In Year. According to C. N. Gerry, In charge of the local office, gold production ID Utah dropped almost one-half In a year. The figure for 1031 was $4,106,- 828 and In 1032 It was $2,040,882. , Gold, most valuable of the metals, If largely a by-product In this state, where the - production of copper and that of lead rank as major industries. Recovery of the yellow metal from copper ore has declined to almost nothing, due to curtailed copper min- ing operations. The true figure of com- mercial production, In this regard, New West Point Chief Lieut Col. Simon B Buckner, Jr., of Kentucky, executive officer of the Army War college, who has been ap- pointed new commandant of the Unit- ed 8tates Military academy at West Point Lieutenant Colonel Buckner was a member of the army's training staff during the World war and has been an executive officer In Washing- ton for several years. probably is artrand 25 per cent of the 1081 mark. , Offsetting It are operations of the men who roam the desert and climb the mountains, believing Implicitly In the old prospector's slogan that \gold Is where you find It\ v Small Operator Produces Most. Of the almost three million dollars turned In during last year, a vast majority came from the small,opera- tor, the man who was forced back Into mineral seeking because of the depression, bringing in Its wake a lack of employment In the commer- cial mines. Exact records distinguishing produc- tion of the lone prospector from that of corporations are not available, but the best guess Is that the prospector now turns In more than twice as much gold as was the case before current hard times, while the corporations, de- pending in the main on copper, silver or other metals, lack customary gold recovery because of curtailed produc- tion. The best guess now, Gerry said, Is $28,070,074 per year for all metals mined In the state. In 1081 It totaled $48,608,464, and that Is far less than the record of a decade ago. The decline in value exceeds by far the drop In per ton, pound or ounce production because of the slump in copper, silver, lead and sine prices. Tuberculosis Seen as Doom of the Eskimos Winnipeg.—The Eskimos are doomed —they are a vanishing race, in the opinion of F. A. \Barney\ Barnes, Vic- toria Land (Arctic Canada) free trad- er, who has arrived In Winnipeg. Barnei has Just completed • \stretch\ of six* and a half years straight in the Arctic, most of this time In the employ of the Hudson's Bay company at Fort Hearne, at the mouth of the Coppermine river. Barnes has seen the Eskimos dwindle and de- cay through the ravages of tubercu- losis—the scourge of both savago and civilised races. He Is puxsled why the Eskimos should succumb so easily to the white plague, for the snowhouse is about as healthy a dwell- ing as you could find, be explains. 'Medical authorities say that the Es- kimo contracted tuberculosis from the white man, but Barnes believes that the Eskimos got It from the Indians, who also are ravaged by' the disease.

INSPIRATION By THOMAS ARKLE CLARK Dean of Men, University of Illinois. Of Few of us realise, I am aurt, to what extent tie faith and confldeice of those who ire behind us, who re- lieve in us, who i ire depending up >n our carrying < m, has upon our i lo- tions. Inspiration of one sort or in other Is at the bot- tom of most sec- cess. It was at i foot- ball game yeirs ago when Illinois was playing C cago, and Herih , berger was captc In of the TJnlverilty of Chicago team, and it was upon him and his leader ship apparently that the success Chicago depenled, when the incident happened which illustrates my point The game had hardly begun when tie brilliant capta n's ankle was broken aqd he was <arrled helpless to tie sidelines. It was the most serious ic cldent which could have happenod. Without Heishberger the game seamed lost aid the team went bapk In o the scrimmage despondent and most hopeless.

London.—A new design threatens to make every ocean liner now afloat obsolete. 8ecret tank tests of scale-model At- lantic liners built to the new specifi- cations already have made a cruising speed of 40 knots while currying from 8 to 0 per cent more car no than the average ocean greyhound. The new design Is the work of Sir Joseph Isherwood, veteran marine architect, who says he believes he has obtained as perfect a streamlining as Is commercially practicable. \I am sorry for anyone who has big ships under construction at the present,*' he said. \They will be out of date by the time they are finished. \The new Cunarder, designed for about thirty knots, Is already old-fash- ioned. \The essential Innovation of my de- sign,\ he explained, \Is that whereas ether designers have gone for stream- inlng at either end of the boat I have ttacked the middle.

American Heroines By LOUTSE M. COMSTOCK WMU tWTlc. The Household By LYDIA LE BARON WALKER The upkeep of a wardrobe Is one of the essential items in* the clothing budget Whether the sum needed is much or little depends largely upon whether the person does the work her- self or has a dressmaker or seam- stress to assist ID either event the cost of extra materials and notions, such as sewing silk, thread, buttons, hooks and eyes, etc, Is identical Again it Is found that the amount needed for the upkeep depends upoo whether a woman merely mends her clothing, or wheth- er she makes it over. If a woman has to hire help in re- modeling garments, the sum of this outlay, plus the ex- tra coat of addi- tional material and notions required, must be calculated and deducted from' the price of a new garment before the amount of the eco- nomical method Is found. It should also be taken Into consideration that the remodeled gar- ment has had its first wear, and can- not be expected to last aa long as a new one. A certain depreciation haa occurred in the case of the remodeled garment. When the saving Is consid- erable the remodeling Is a financial success and worth the time put Into the work and,also any outlay in- curred. ;' Working Single Handed. When a woman djoes the remodeling and alterations herself the monetary saving is greatly increased. There are many women who are so good at this work that they get splendid re- sults. They know that al) material which is tender, although not actually threadbare, must be cut out that to leave it in may temporarily decrease present work and jsv^fenis of altera- tions, but all took ^Bthe garment will need another ld<^Hllng. Always the amount of timoOj^H must be put into remodeling sit ^^Ve taken Into consideration. Wlltt^B is so much that regular workI t ^B> suffer, or a strain be put upotylt^Bi, It la a mis- take to emphasise freiHwlng so much. There are two ij/^Plo solve such a problem. One is to plan the ward- robe so that there is ample time to do the necessary alterations before a sea- son's garment is needed, and without taxing energy nor encroaching on time needed for routine tasks. For example, now, one abould see to spring clothes, and summer ones, too. It ia not too early to go ever summer clothes one has, and fix them up. Then tee what else Is essential. The other solution is to eliminate from one's wardrobe. This may mean the recutting of garments to fit a child, thus increasing another's ward- robe while relieving ones' own of things which could not be used. Children's garments require so much less goods that only the sound parte of the adult's clothes may be needed. Where there are no children the adult's garments can be sent to some home where there are little folks and scanty funds. Here material can be pu/ to the best use possible. Often to have the much wanted material arrive when there seemed to be no way of getting it lends wings to sewing.] J Value of Concentration, 'tncther does well to allow s cer- respect to be paid to a child's absorption. I know of one mother who waa finding a little girl difficult be- cause of her apparent inattention. The child could scarcely be roused at times even to eat Bhe seemed so far away during these periods and so bard to interest in the usual fames and play. At other times she wouljl re» spond in a lively manner. This vari- ableness waa disturbing, until one day, when little daughter had been espe- cially difficult to arouse, she suddenly exclaimed, \I've got it mother, I've been making up poetry. Want to hear it?\ \Of course, dear,\ the mother re- plied. The rhyme was good for so young a child. She waa but six, Happy Results. After that mother was not so dis- turbed when daughter had her mo- ments of concentration. Moreover she secured from the library books of .rhymes and good poetry suited to the child's age. The little girl was de- lighted. She may never turn out to be a genius. It is too soon yet to know, but mother and daughter are Jiavjng good tlmea together and the little firl is getting acquainted with fine Utexa- fj.

James H. Doollttle, holder of the American seaplane and world's land- plane speed, records. \Paradoxical aa It may seem,\ Doo- llttle observed, ''airplane speed in the air la governed by its landing speed. \The pontoons om a seaplane's land- ing gear,\ he said, \permit compara- tively smooth contact with the water with a suction effect, compared with the rough bouncing of/ land-plane wheels on a ground surface, which, at extremely high speeds, has a tendency to turn the plane over.\ The most powerful engine used In land-racing planes today Is about 850 horse power, while a 2,800-horse pow- er engine was developed for the Kng- lls>r r seaplane which flew 406 miles per hour, the record.

Next morning there were only five cats. A few daya later Beach returned to Mount Vernon on business. At his former residence he waa greet- ed by a small, badly bedraggled cat, which evidently bad just com- pleted a 44-mile journey back to its old home. . By Charles Sughroe Anne Royall A ft MED with umbrella and the rk packet of books she offered for sale, an active tongue, an astonishing vocabulary and the courage of.. Her own convictions, Anne Royall was a striking and In many waya a heroic figure in the Washington of the early days of the Republic, of whom eon gressmen stood in awe an^ whom so ctal leaders, at least to her face, ad dressed with respect During the Revolutionary war, when Anne was still a little girl, she was captured by the Indiana, and lived with them for fifteen years. When she was at length aet free she married rapt William Royall, a wealthy; learned and eccentric landholder and became the honored mistress of hU fine home at Sweet Springs, Va*, and hie apt and eager pupIL When the captain died, his property, willed to Anne, was aevertfieless awarded to other relatives at the end of a long and bitter lawsuit Penniless, and flf ty-four years old, Anne set out for Washington to claim a pension as wld ow of a Revolutionary officer. in this extremity, Anne sought to forget her troubles by setting down her Impressions and views. During a winter In Alexandria, she compiled them Into her first book, \Sketches of History, Life and -Manners in the United 8tates.\ In the spring she eon tinned to Washington, met President Adams, and set out on a difficult jour- ney through Pennsylvania, Mew York and New England to colled advance subscriptions for It and materiel for further writings. The book was pub- lished In New Haven, in 1828. and sold \faster than the binder conW cover the copies.\ Followed four more hooka, In which Anne drew lively and not alwaya flatter In* plcturee of the per- sonages of the day and aired her dis- taste for certain political movements with such effect that her enemien,even tnally called out a band of email boys to stone her house and had her indict- ed as a \common scold\ and fined 110. The next year, afire with Indigna- tion, the sixty-two-year-old woman purchased an old printing press, snd aid of a journeyman printer f up as editor and main con Washington's earliest scatv small weekly called at first the \toesblngton Paul Pry\ and Hater *The 'rBmtresa.\ Anne became the watchdog oT congress.

M The Molly Pitcher of Illinois.\ On December 7, 1832, the Confeder- ate general Hlndman fell upon the Third division of the Union forces in Arkansas. The First Arkansas cav- alry, acting aa advance guard, waa at breakfast when the Gray jackets swept down upon them, and within a few minutes the Union horsemen were in wild flight As they stam- peded toward the rear they were met by the Ninety-fourth Illinois infantrv, '•McLean county's owa,\ led by CoL John McNulta. In vain the colonel tried to question the 'fugitives as to the numbers and position of the en- emy. The fleeing soldiers could only reply that the Confederates, \charged us by the millions, slrl H Presently, amid the disorder, the colonel eepled a woman. She was mounted on a fine horse, and was pleading with the demoralised men to torn and fight She iad with her an amhulince and a driver, apparently under perfect control. Seeing her so cool 4nd brave. Colonel McNulta rode forward and asked her about the situ- ation ahead. Her reply waa a scath- ing denunciation of the officers and men of the runaway regiment \My husband is surgeon with that outfit,\ she \ said grimly. \I have charge of this ambulance to help him take care of Che wounded, but the way they're running, there wont be any wounded to care for.\ Colonel McNulta waved his hand to- ward the Ninety-fourth, swinging down the road to perfect order.
