World's Clearing House for Dealings in Ivory A sight that can he matched no- where on earth Is frequently seen In one of the big ~varebouses of the Lon- don docks. On what Is known as the Ivory floor of this warehouse some- times no fewer than 40,000 tusks of elephants nnd other animals, among them 140 tusks of prehistoric mam- moths, some estimated to be nearly 50,(D0 years old. Every three months, when auctions are held, more ivory than is collected' at any other place In the world is brought to this warelmuse and buyers from the United States and Europe come to bid for it. Tbe largest of the mammoth's tusks measures 14 feet from tip to tip, is curved like the horns of some enor- mous paleozoic ram and Is worth $27~ a hundredweight. These tee-preserved tusks are found In the semi-arctic re- #ons of Siberia and more than ten ~ons a year arrive in this world's clear. Ing house for ivory. In Sl.berla men dig for ti~ese tusks as they dig for gold in other parts of the world. Some of these great pieces of ivory are beautiful and wonderfully pre served, while others look llke pieces of fossilized wood. The ivory, except for the exterior discoloration, is as sound as If it had been taken off an animal a few weeks ago. Wolves in Russia Take Heavy Toll of Anlmah Though tales of ttmber wolves ehas. Ing and attacking human beings are branded as fabrications, the European and Arctic cousins of the American species frequently are guilty. Donald B. McMithm, the explorer says that the white wolves of. the Are tic have heen known to track down and kill Eskimos. lie cited an in stance recently when a man was borne down and devonred by wolves on ida way hmne from a sealing expedition. In ttnssia, where wolves travel in large and ferocious packs In the win ter, there are ninny instances where peasants have beer, devoured. Some times a whole family, Journeyln~ across the plains iu a sleigh, is killed and eaten by the beasts after the horses have been pulled down. Tales of desperate flghls are common. In Russia 52.000 horse~. 50.(}(}0 cattle and 25.000 other animals were d~ voured by wolves In 1924. The Rus- sian wolf is very much llke the Amerl can timber w.lf. excep! for color and markings, and sometimes weighs 100 pounds. The greatest human toll by a ~f was taken neal: Gevaudan, France, In 1765. If the story ts correct, 80 peG. pie were ,levoured that year by an animal of great size and daring which invaded streets at night in the hunt for victims.

The Family Next Door Tt $ t Some System ] J Painful "Dengue Fever" Is Traced to Mosquito Dengue fever, the extremely painful but seldom fatal ntalady that breaks out in epidemics along the eastern .Mediterranean and in the East Indies, la spread by the same mosquito that carries yellow fever. Dengue fever itself.appears to estab. llah an immunity against yellow fever and may be a guard set up by nature across the line by which tim latter might penetrate Europe and Asia. These are findings from recent ex- periments Of the Dutch htstttute of Tropical Medicine at Amsterdam. Fourteen volunteers allowed thent- selves to be bitten by mosquitoes which had fed on Dengue patients. All fell sick with the same malady. Tlien monkeys were Infected with Dengue fever. It Is much more fatal among them than among humans. Those that recovered were given in- jections of yellow fever. Only 27 per cent died. Ordinarily, yellow fever causes a 90 per cent mortality rate among monkeys. Tltese experiments have greatly les- sened the fear of a yellow fever out. break In the Dutch East Indies, where Dengue Is an almost universal experi- ence. "Prodigal Son" Parable Marvelous Short Story The short story has always existed, though It was not nnttl the Nineteenth century that the art of writing it was consciously practiced. As Sophocles said of Aeschylus, these early autltors of short stories did the right thing without knowing why, It was only on rare occasions, however, that these happy accidents occurred. Thus Pro- fessor Baldwin, after an exhaustive ex. amlnatlon of the 100 tales in Boeeac- riG's "Decamero~," decided that only two of them are short stories In the modern critical sense, while three oth- ,era approach the totality of impres- sion which Is the result of conscious unity in expression.-" The New Testa- ment contains a short story which Is a structural masterpiece. The parable of the "Prodigal Son," which is only 500 words long in the authorized ver- sion, satisfies the modern definition, securing the greatest emphasis pos- sible with a surprising economy of means. In America the short story had Its beginning in tim "Sketch I~ook" of Washington Irving. Naturally In a lesson in parsing a sentence. the word "courting" came to a young miss of fourteen to parse. She com- menced hesitatingly, but got on well enough until site was to tell what it agreed with. Here she stopped short. But the teacher said. "Very well ; what does courting agree with?" Ellen blushed and held down her head. "Ellen, don't you know what court- Ing agrees wlth?"~. "Ye-ye-yes, ma'am." "Well, Ellen, why don't you parse that word? What does it agree with ?" Blushing still more and stammering, Ellen at last replied: "It agrees with all the girls, ma'am." Heroes of World War The "Lost Battalion," is the name given to the Three Hundred and Eighth regiment, United States Infan- try, commanded by Lieut. Col. Charles W. ~Whittlesey. Whlttlesey was or- dered to advance through the densest part of the great forests of the Ar- gonne during the World war in order to take a certain point and hold It. Far In advance of the other troops, he was soon surrounded by the enemy and attacked for four.days and nights. More than 100 hours passed without his men obtaining any food and only a little ~vat~r. The majority of his com- mand was killed or wounded, but Whittlesey refused to surrender. He was eventually relieved. First Appls Dumpling It Is said to have been George HI who asked how the apple got inside the dumpling. Here. then. Is the true story of Its origin, as related In Nor. folk. It goes like this: Once upon a time there wa~ a worthy Norfolk farm- er who had a pretty Norfolk wife. He compardd her cheeks with apples. He asserted fondly that he would like to eat them. "So you shall," replled the wife, "Wait until tomorrow." And when the morrow came sl~e set before him the father of all apple dumplings. So the farmer laughed hugely and gave the rosy rogue a groat with which to buy r~bbons at tim next fair. Banana as a Food The banana is known to be an al. kall-prodncing food, It Is a food which has been founded to he efficient tn reducing the acldlly of the body. The banana wlmn fully ripe Is a most valuable addition to tile diet of young children, particularly those for whom a gala In weight Is desirable. It can also be given to infants. This fruR when unripe consists largely of starch and is, therefore, dltlicttlt of diges- tion. As the ripening process goes on a. large part of the starcl~ Is convert- ed Into sugar. @ II III ' II ~ANCAKES on a crisp wiu- ter's morning! Isn't that a delightful way to start the day off right?
