Registry More Satisfactory. A person who insures a package: some of the postal officials maintain, does so not to protect himself so much against monetary loss, but more with a desire to insure that his package will reach its destination. Consequent- ly, these officials say. a greater degree of satisfaction would be given the gen- eral public if all the insured fourth' class matter were again placed under the registry division. JFo do sOj they say. would necessarily entail more work upon that division and incur a greater expense. The losses, however, they .maintain, would be less*' and some of the advocates of this' policy go so far as to say that the reduction in indemnity payments' would'practically pay for the addition- al clerks who would have to be taken on in the registry service. Mr. Dockery. when asked if he or the postmaster general had contemplated making such a change.. replied that •neither had and added that it was im- possible until time had. afforded more experience with the parcel post to say whether such a move would be advan- tageous. <i.iiiti'ii.>..i\>.\*. ^ What $hall Wfl do in Mexico?

Machinery Put In Motion to Make These Regulations Effective. te &-' Congressman Reilly Asks House to -. Makj National Licenses Possible. A.proposal for federal medical li- censes which would permit the prac- tioners holding them to practice medi- cine in any state or possession of the United States has just been presented to the house, according to advices from Washington, in a bill introduced by Kepresentative Thomas L. Eeilly ot Connecticut. The bill was marked \by request.\ It authorizes the president to ap- point a United States medical licensing board, to have headquarters at Wash- ington and to consist of two medical officers of the army, two medical offi- cers of the navy and two officers of the United States marine hospital corps. TI1&* terms of the members of the board would be for four years each and the salaries $4,000 a year apiece. Any practitioner holding a state li- cense may apply to the federal board and upon pnynient of $2 receive a fed- eral license. ,• Those persons who do not possess a • state license may apply to the federal board for a federal license and upon satisfactorily fulfilling the require- ments of the American Medical asso- ciation and the presentation of a di- ploma of a doctor of medicine from a recognized medical school receive a federal license upon the payment of a ten dollar fee. Applicants in such cases, however, must have a high school edu- cation or its equivalent and present certificates of good moral character. It is also provided that they must be American citizens. fly* -• Not His Fault. One of the women belonging t o the Mothers' club at the settlement house came to excuse herself from the meet- ing with her face swollen and highly discolored.

Lovers of beefsteak and onions were startled when the department of agri- culture announced at Washington re- cently that the Tylenchus devastatrix had iuvaded the United States and the future of the onion industry was in jeopardy. The invader with the im- posing name is known also as the onion eelworm. Hitherto it has con- fined its operations to Europe,. Africi. and Australia, where it has wreaked havoc, but now it has made its appear- ance in this country. Government experts in warning growers of onions did not minimize the gravity of the appearance here of the eelworm. It seems impervious to <?hemical remedies that have been tried for its eradication, and the eggs of the insect, experts declare, will sur- vive two years of complete dryness. \The worms are seldom over one- twentieth of an inch long,\ said the department experts, \and are very slender and transparent, so that theii presence is not generally detected by the naked eye. and the grower there- fore often remains in ignorance of his losses.\ The pest attacks all floral and vege- table bulbs and is regarded as highly dangerous. In view of this the depart- ment urges that all infected plants be sent to it for microscopical examina- tion. following the proclamation of the president of the United States estab- lishing regulations for the protection of migratory birds, the department of agriculture has set in motion machin- ery to make these regulations effective in every state Nov. 1, the ..date set for the operation of the proclamation. • , These regulations put under federal protection, for the first time, a large number of migratory game and insec- tivorous birds and thus place federal restrictions on the 5.000.000 hunters of the United States. In enforcing these regulations federal authorities will co- operate with state game commissioners and' other state authorities in carrying out the provisions of the law and to prevent complications in the local en- forcement of the regulations. Among the birds protected by the regulations are, the brant, wild duck, goose, swan, cranes of various species, rail, several kinds of shore biijls, pi- geon, dove, wild pigeon, bobolink, cat- bird, chickadee, cuckoo, flicker, fly- catcher, grosbeak, humnniiig bird, king- let, martin, meadow lark, nighthawk, nuthatch, oriole, robin, shrike, swal- low, swift, thrush, warbler, whippoor- will, woodpecker and wren. The regulations for t' .> enforcement of the law separate the country into two zones, known as the breeding and wintering zones. The former comprises twenty-five states, lying wholly or in part north of latitude 40 and the Ohio river, and the latter comprises twenty- three states and the District of Colum- bia lying wholly or in part south of latitude 40 and the Ohio river. A close season has been established on the catbird, chickadee, grosbeak, .humming bird, martin, meadow lark, bullbat, -robin, swallow, thrush, whip- poorwill and woodpecker. The regula- tions contain a prohibition abolishing the hunting of all migratory game and insectivorous birds from sunset to sun- rise. Words That Speak. Bang—\a sudden noise like that from a gun\ is the definition given by the dictionary. But the explanation is be- fogging and futile, for a \bang\ is— well, what better describes it than that simple word itself? So many of our most expressive words seem similarly to have sprung from a desire to form with the lips a sound mimicking the thing described. Why waste words on a definition of the word \splash.\ for example? You hear all the abrupt, restless heaving of the waters in that one word. And does even a baby need to be told what \buzz\ means when a blue- bottle is leading a forlorn hope against the window? \Tinkle \whistle \whine.\' \gur- gle,\ \cackle \icy\—these are only a few of our other eloquently descriptive words.—Loudon Answers.

Physical and Mental Standard—Couple Will Be Offered Inducements to-Wedi A eugenic marriage—the matching and muting of a man and a woman as near to physical, mental and moral perfection as Is possible—is planned by Frederic H. Robinson of New York city, president of the sociological fund committee of the Medical Review of Reviews.' As far as Mr. Robinson is aware, the prospective bride and bridegroom have never met nor heard of each, other. Mr. Robinson himself knows neither of them. They will be selected by a jury of doctors, men and women Any one can apply. Once the selections are made the two examples of roburt hu- manity will be presented to each other. Then may follow the only hitch in the plan. Either may decide the other Impossible, and the match may there- fore fail. But. taking it for granted that two persons, each judged by the laws of eugenics fit to become the par- ents of children, may be matched con- genially, they will face the plan broach- ed by Mr. Robinson. Hopes to Test Theories. \This is not original, except in the fact that we will carry it through if possible,\ said Mr. Robinson in a re- cent interview. \It has been mulled over by theorists. Now for a material experiment. \It is suggested to me that a fund of $1,000 be raised to further the idea. One-half of It will go to the bride and the bridegroom when they are married. The other $300 will be theirs when the first child is born. To start the ball rolling, I can.personally guarantee that the sociological fund of the Medical Review of Reviews will post $500. \Now it is for some person or organ- ization interested to guarantee the oth- er $500. , \The lists are open to anybody who chooses to enter the competition. We bar no man nor woman who is willing to be examined physically and mental- ly and to open the way for us to search his or her ancestry for physical or mental blemishes. The applicants shall be examined by physicians of their own sex. Applicants Will Be Graded. \We shall examine as many appli- cants as may apply. They will lie graded on a percentage basis, and when we are satisfied that we have found one man and one woman who indicate their abilities to be the par- ents of healthy, clean and normal chil- dren we shall mate an effort to have them many. \Social class will not be considered. We are examining the human animal, not searching for a Lochinvar. All ap- plications may be sent to me at the offices of the Medical Review of Re- views.\ Mr. Robinson's offices are located at 208 Broadway, New York city. On the sociological fund committee witli him are Norman Hapgood, chairman; Mrs. O. H. P. Belmont. Eugene Brieux, Mrs. Charlotte Perkins G-ilman, Dr. Abraham Jacobi, Mrs. William K. Vanderbilt, Si\. Ella Wheeler Wilcox and Dr. Ira S. Wile. Applicants, men and women! should write at once to Mr. Robinson. Some degree of pulchritude is a necessary adjunct to physical wholesomeness. Give* President Powar to Appoint \tatt Fi<om Military Schools. t Important ehange'a in. the method of admitting candidates to the West Point military academy are' proposed in a bill just introduced in congress by Chairman Chamberlain of the senate military committee. It would give the president power to appoint each year to the academy ten \honor men\ from ten educational institutions having of' fleers of the army detailed for military instruction. The list of \honor schools\ would be prepared by the war department. The Chamberlain bill also proposes when the annual examinations fail to fill all vacancies in the academy frotu the list of regular appointees, tfcat candidates should be selected on the merit principle from the whole list of alternates, instead of being restricted to the alternate from the district where the principal has failed. \GREATEST HEM IN WORLD.\ Remarkable Biddy Has Laid 283 Eggs In a Year. Upon hen C-543 the Oregon Agri- cultural college at Corvallis. Ore., has conferred the title of \the greatest hen In the world.\ She has just laid her two hundred and eighty-third egg within a year, making what is said to be a world's record. , C-543 was hatched April, 29. 1012, and began laying at the age or five and one-half months. The former record was made at the Oregon college farm in 1911, when a hen laid 2S2 eggs in a year. ELECTRIC SPANKER NEXT. Installed In Huntington (W. Va.) Schools—Great Success. Two schools in Huntington, W. Va., where discipline has alwa-vs been a matter of the instructors' strength of arm, have been transformed by means of an electric \spanker\ into institu- tions of learning with the best av- erage deportment of all the schools in that city, according t o Superintendent • Wilson M. Foulke. Both schools, known for years as un- ruly, had exhausted the patience of the school board. A day or so after the school season opened a.carpenter and an electrician appeared at'one of the schools and began the installation of a spanker in a small anteroom. As the spanker gradually assumed shape and the electric connections were made the unruly pupils began to ask ques- tions, and finally they were given a, demonstration of its ability to adminis-' tor punishment. The spanker delivers about five short, sharp blows a second. After several of the boys had become sub- jects of a test of the spanker they had some stories to tell of its punishing powers. Immediately the spanker was com- pleted in one school it was installed in the other institution. According to Su- perintendent Foulke, since the \per- suaders\ have been installed and their abilities become known, not one unruly pupil can be found in either school. TIES UP EDDY PROPERTY. Administrator Must Hold It Until the Trustees Are Appointed. Under a decision of the supreme court just filed at Concord, N. H., Jo- siah E. Fernald of Concord was or- dered to hold as administrator the property of rhe late Mrs. Mary Baker G. Eddy, the founder of Christian Sci- ence, until trustees are appointed by the probate court. The court held that Mrs. Eddy cre- ated a public trust to be administered by the First Church of Christ. Scien- tist, in Boston, under the court's super- vision.

For instance, Lind is derived from a Teutonic word meaning a \snake.\ The apparently quiet and harmless surname Wren comes from a word which de- notes \rapine.\ Fish, though such an innocent name in appearance, original- ly meant \impetuous.\ Love, hope, fear, faith—these make humanity; these are its sii?ns and note and character.—Robert Browning. Easy Problem. A negro wished to deposit some mon- ey in the postal savings bank and the clerk asked his age. \Well boss,\ be replied. \I don't know jus' how old I is, but I was born in March an' you kin count it up for yo'self.\—Every- body's.

Commemorating the deliverance of early Mormon settlers from starva- tion, a monument to the Great Salt lake seagull has just been* unveiled in the temple grounds at Salt Lake City.

Bees Attack Painters. While painters were painting the steeple of the Baptist church in An- gelica, N. Y.. they were attacked and driven off by bees. Joseph Horner and L. W.

Increased Revenues Chiefly Due to Larger Output of Factories,:—De- crease of More, Than 25 Per Cent In. Penalties Means Successful Enforce- ment of the Law.by Officials. Progress and prosperity in the Phil- ippines under the administration of the United States are reflected in the annual report of William T. Kolting. collector of internal revenue for the islands, for the last fiscal year. The report has just been made' public by the bureau of insular affairs at Wash- ington. For the year ended June 30 last Col- lector Nolting reports total collections of $11,392,382.08. an; increase of $800.- 298.83, or 7% per cent, over the pre- ceding year. Of the increase nearly $700;000 was due to a larger output by manufactories of taxable articles and to- a stricter enforcement of the laws imposing taxes. •.' The amount named includes the land' tax. $G82,715.40, in the city of Manila. which has a population of ^ approxi- mately 3OO;O0O. Of internal revenue proper the tax collected on alcoholic and tobacco products was, $4.040i01S.31. on dealers $333,1G5 and on imported articles of this nature $333,996. Collects.Many Taxes. The internal revenue bureau collects not only the taxes on liquors and to- bacco, but also the cedula, or poll tax. the percentage tax on sales of mer- chandise and all occupation taxes. These are to some extent of a local nature, the cedula being entirely so. and, while collected by the agents of the central office, are later apportioned to the provinces and municipalities. In other words, the practice which obtains in many states of having taxes paid to the state and then apportioned among the counties is \extended in the Philippines so as ito include the towns or municipalities. ' , \One item of decreased receipts is very gratifying,\ says the bureau of in- sular affairs, \the amount of penalties collected under the opium law, it be- ing less than $4G.O0O, or a decrease of more than 25 .per cent. The Philippine government,. having been the pioneer in the recent worldwide movement for the suppression of opium and having taken the successive steps of licensing medical treatment and prohibition, with the rigid enforcement of punitive laws, may now look forward to the early completion of the task taken up of effectually eradicating the opium evil among the Chinese residents, as it has already among the Filipinos.\ The apportionable taxes amounted to 17,434,278 pesos, or half that many dol- lars, including the regular cedula or poll tax of $1,071,581, which was di- vided equally between the municipali- ties and provinces, the extra cedula tax voted by the various provincial boards, amounting to nearly as much, having gone to the provinces for road and bridge purposes. The municipalities received license taxes to the extent of more than $300,000, while the other collections of $1,582,041 were divided equally between the municipalities and provinces'. Replacing American Employees. One phase of Mr. Nofting's report throws an interesting bit of light on the working out of the policy of reduc- ing the number of Americans in the Philippine service as rapidly as quali- fied Filipinos became available. The bureau of internal revenue began the year with 430 regular and temporary employees, of whom eighty-five were Americans, while on June 30 the num- ber of Americans had been reduced to forty-eight. In the process of reorganization the collector substituted Filipinos in sev- eral offices heretofore occupied ty Americans exclusively, and he has found, with few exceptions, that the results have been better than hoped for, the new force of agents' assist- ants especially rendering excellent service. The bureau plays an active part in the enforcement of several laws, and its disbursements represent more than the mere cost of collecting taxes, but this was done at an expense of 2.04 per cent of the money received.
