A popular system of engine temperature control is that employing a thermal coil or thermostat controlling the flow of water through the radiator. When the water is cold, the passage leading to the radiator is closed and the water is forced through the engine jackets. When the water becomes heated, the thermostat automatically opens and the radiator becomes part of the circulating system. In the meantime the engine has rapidly attained its normal efficiency through the rapid heating of the portion of the water which has passed through it.
The man who drives his car in the winter time will require a warm garage. Complete heating plants for garages have accordingly been devised. One of the best systems burns coal as fuel and distributes hot water through pipes, automatically regulated, to all parts of the garage. The plant burns only about five cents' worth of coal a day, and requires attention only once, or in very cold weather twice, a dar. It is absolutely safe from fire and has, in. deed, been approved by fire underwriters.
THE MOTOR CAR OF THE FUTURE When we look back upon the motor car of ten years ago, we marvel at the tremeldous strides that have been made in securing comfort and simplicity of operation. Accessory manufacturers have been most ingenious in devising mechanical or automatic contrivances to replace practically every operation formerly accomplished by physical effort. One need only push a button, turn a lever, or pull a string in order to secure smooth and efficient operation of his car.
A writer in the “ Scientific American" has recently made an interesting prophecy of the motor car of the future. Here are a few of the points that he discusses .
The automobile of the future will be weathertight. It will have glass sides, front, rear, and roof. The glass sides will come down for warm weather and curtains will keep out the glare.
A new fuel will be used, developing direct electrical energy.
It will have electrical brakes using stored engine energy, and an electrical steering control.
Driving will be done from a small control board which can be held in the lap. The driver may sit in any seat he chooses, front or back, as the coutrol board will be readily movable..
The car will be low, so one can easily step into it.
A six-inch clearance will be ample, as all roads I will be smooth, level, and bard.
The car of the future will carry neither extra tires nor extra wheels. There will be either a nonpuncturable tire or an entirely new substitute for rubber,
The above prophecy may or may not come true.
But if automobile and accessory manafacturers make as rapid strides in the next ten years as they have in the past decade, the perfect motor car will have been almost | attained.

mame “hero shrew," bestowed by the Mangbetu on this little animal, which scientists call Scutisorex congicus.
While the shrew family includes the smallest of all mammals—some being scarcely two inches in length—a fully adult hero shrew measures 8.6 inches to 9.6 inches from nose to tip of tail, the latter accounting for about two-fifths of the total length.

The thought that I cannot put away is that whatever I miglit save now and fail to save now may be a hundred times the worst waste I shall ever have committed, though I have, like most Americans, many at past wasteful habit to regret.
It will be far the worst because not to save now is to throw away the co-operation of millions of others ; because not to save now will tend to prolong the war; because not to save now will multiply the war's privations, lengthen its death-roll and the vast procession of its maimed men, and will make saving more difficult and less effective by and by when we shall be compelled to save through cruel conditions from which saving now might have saved us.

THE HERO SHREW In the vast Ituri Forest in the Belgian Congo, where the sun rarely pierces through the dense foliage and rain-pools stand for months in the foot-tracks of the elephants, a new sort of forest creature has been found. This is the “hero shrew”-a variant of the common shrew [or shrewmouse], which is very widely distributed over the earth, being found in the Arctic Circle, Asia, Europe, Australia, England, and the Americas. "The hero shrew, however, is known from only two localities, both in the Belgian Congo. These are the villages of Medje and Bafwabaka, both situated near the borders of the tropical rain forest, and only about thirty miles distant from each other. Easily recognized among other varieties of shrew by its more clumsy appear ance and its longer, denser pelage, the most striking characteristic of the hero shrew is the remarkable strength of its vertebral column. Some interesting proof of the strength of its back is given by Mr. Herbert Lang, leader of the Lang-Chạpin Expedition which was maintained in Africa for six years by the American Museum of Natural History. He says that the natives of the locality, especially the Mangbetu, lelight in performing on captive specimens. “ After the usual hubbub of various invocations, a full-grown man weighing some 160 pounds steps barefooted upon the shrew. Steailily trying to balance himself on one leg, he continues to vociferate several minutes. The poor shrew seems certainly to be doomed. But as soon as his tormentor jumps off, the shrew, after a few shivering movements, tries to escape, none the worse for this mad experience, and apparently in no need of the wild applause and exhortations of the throng."" During this demonstration the head is always left free. The heart and other viscera are protected from crushing by the very strong vertebral column, made up of heavy, closely interlocking spines, and curiously convex behind The shoulder, forming there an arch highly resistant to pressure.
The Mangbetu believe that the charred body or heart of the hero shrew, when prepared by their medicine-man, lends the quality of invincibility when worn as a talisman or taken as medicine. Those about to engage in warfare or setting out on a
langerous enterprise such as elephant huntng are always eager to carry along some part of a hero shrew as a charm against langer. Their faith in its protective power is doubtless a strong stimulant to courage and quick-wittedness, probably often causmg extraordinarily heroic conduct. Withunit doubt this is the explanation of the
THE PRUSSIAN VIEW-POINT
When the war first started, I had an acquaintance, a Prussian woman, who was caught in this country by the sudden outbreak of hostilities. One day I repeated to her what I considered a humorous conversation that I had heard between two colored men. The men were speaking of a mutual friend.
Said one of the men, “ Gus is the funniest nigger I ever saw. He just lies all the time."
“ Dat's right,” agreed the second.
"Now I looks at it dis way,” continued the first. “If a lie is goin' to do you any good, why, lie; but if it ain't goin' to do you Business concerns and U. S. Government calling for

A rabbi in New York City,so a contributor to the “ Christian Register” says, was catechizing a class of small boys whose parents had come from the land of the Czar. “Now, Isaac, tell us who was the first man?” “ George Washington," came the prompt reply. Exclaimed the amazed rabbi: “Surely you know better, Isaac. You, a Jew, to say that George Washington was the first man? You ought to know Adam was the first man.” “My teacher she say George Washington was first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen. And, anyway, you know we Americans don't take much stock in those foreigners."
People who think that the betting odds are indicative of forthcoming events will
the war will end. “ I'll lay you 3 to 1 that there war will end by April,” declared a member of one of these clubs, a Colonel who has seen a lot of service “ out there,” according to a despatch to the New York - Sun." À favorite bet with other clubmen is that the war will end by next Christmas, as “the Kaiser's Christmas gift to the world.”
An unusual advertisement is this from a New York City newspaper:
Carmela — is looking for her husband, Pasquale — who has been missing from her seven years. She is anxious to find where he is and is willing to forgive everything and do as he says. If any one happens to know him, kindly call at — That the lady should have stood out seven years and then surrendered so meekly is pathetic.
Referring to the statement recently published, that the postal rate established in 1851 was “from two to four times the present one,” a subscriber writes : “ It may help further to contentment with the present cost to learn that in 1834–only seventeen years earlier—the postage from New York City to the newer settlements halfway across New York State was 1834 or 1934 or 371, cents. The correct change was easily made by use of the coins then current-sixpences and New York State shillings, worth about half as much as the English coins of the same names. There were no postage stamps ; the amount to be paid was written by hand upon the corner. There was no railway ; the stage took several days for that trip, one way. Envelopes were not in use; the large square loves were not in letter sheets were folded in an ingenious and rather intricate manner to make the outer leaf form a secure wrapping, then fastened by a wafer or sealing-wax. This folding was taught in school by the writing teacher and was puzzling to learn."
The small people of the country will bear with delight that the circuses do not all expect to be put out of business this spring because of war conditions. “We have our own baggage cars and freight trains," said one circus manager, " and all we require is an engine to hanl them. But if worse comes to worst we can return to the wagon route that formerly prevailed.” The sight of those gay wagons and strange beasts on the country roads again would bring joy to a host of circus-lovers, young and old.
The recent sale of the paintings collected by James W. Brady (* Diamond Jim") brought out this anecdote from a dealer :
One morning my telephone rang. Mr. Brady was at the other end of the wire.
Niosis,' he said, burglars got into the house last night. I'm short a Diaz and two other pictures.' What had really happened, I found, was that guests he had bad at dinner had admired these paintings and that he had made presents of the pictures to them. His object in calling me up was to order me to have the gifts packed and delivered: Vany a collection in this country started with the gift of a painting from Mr. Brady.
