*HE

served for your grandchildren. It contains extracts from the most important public utterances of President Wilson from the momentous day when he addressed a joint session of Congress on April 2, 1917, and urged American acceptance of the challenge of Imperialism, down to and including his address to Congress on January 8, 1918, in which he defined the terms which this Government would be willing to consider as a basis for peace. Among these extracts areThe Challenge

The Menace The President's Address before joint The President's Flag Day Address, session of Congress, April 2, 1917

June 14, 1917, at Washington The Call to Industry

Civilization's Demands The President's Proclamation from The President's Reply to the Peace the White House, April 16, 1917

The President's Address before joint the Executive Mansion, May 18, 1917 session of Congress, December 4, The Goal of Free Peoples

The Bases of Permanent Peace The President's Note to the Russian Government, given under date of The President's Address before joint May 26, 1917

session of Congress, January 8, 1918 THE HE quotations form a continuous chain of thought reflecting the attitude of

the Administration toward the problem of National and business life which comes with extraordinary timeliness to instill new courage, and which should be read and reread by every American citizen in the spirit of renewed resolve to do his share to bring the war to a successful end.

BY THE WAY Apropos of the recent observance of Washington's Birthday, a subscriber writes “My grandmother, Margaret Hill Hilles, retained her keen meinory of early events for practically all of her ninety-six years, and she could clearly tell her great-grandchildren of her meeting President Wasbington in Philadelphia. She was then a lass but six years old. She was sitting on the front steps of her grandmother Morris's house (on the south side of Walnut, just above Fourth Street) with her little cousin Martha Morris, two years younger. Washington, then President, came down the street with his staff and stopped in front of the two children. Addressing the older, he said, “ Well, my little lassie, how is your grandmother to-day? And what makes your cheeks so red?” Answering the last question first, the little girl smiled and said, brightly, “ Mush and milk, sir.” The President shook hands with her and took her cousin in his arms and kissed her ; then said to Margaret, “ Give my love to your grandmother.” Mrs. Hilles was a member of the Society of Friends. She survived until the year 1882.

The buffalo bull that tried to stop the first transcontinental train might turn in his grave and laugh at this item from the “ Railway Age:""* At a highway crossing in West Peabody, Massachusetts, a local passenger train was thrown off the track by an automobile freight truck, the locomotive being overturned.” Thus the industrial "tank" proved its superiority in bucking power to the locomotive. "The railway and the automobile owners in this case brought suits against each other for damages. The railway won; it has just secured a verdict against the truck owners.

A photographic invention developed since the war may possibly prove of use in sending photographs by carrier pigeon or for other purposes where extreme lightness is desired. It consists of a Japan tissue paper coated with a rapid emulsion for making enlargements. Heretofore, as explained in an article in the “Scientific American,” the use of such paper

has not been practicable owing to the durability of the fiber being affected by the chemicals used. In the new process, however, the paper remains so tough that the photograph “may be wet and crumpled like a wash-rag and yet restored to perfect condition.” For storing the enormous number of photographic war records which are being made the new process may prove valuable.

The hobo wood-chopper or wood-sawyer has disappeared, according to the Brooklyn “ Eagle,” with the advent of good times and work for all. “He has been pronounceul as extinct,” says the “ Eagle,” « as the oog bird, the dinosaur, and the Irish elk. Even the hybrid species that deserted his job, leaving on the wood-pile the legend,

*Just tell them that you saw me,

But you didn't see me saw,' has disappeared from the earth.” These statements are based on the fact that the Brooklyn Bureau of Charities is unable now to secure sawyers for their board and lodging, or even for the “real wages” of $2.50 and $3 a day, and has had to install a machine to saw and split wood.

“The house in Joppa, Palestine, where St. Peter stayed with Simon the Tanner,” so a newspaper despatch from London says, “is to be secured by the Church Army as a center for the care of British troops fighting in Palestine.” For the Brit
