The causeway proper Is a low pro- montory formed of closely-packed col- sums. Altogether there are about 40,- ~a~0 pillars, fitting Into each other al- most perfectly, and Joined horizontal- ly. Various more or less detached groups are known as the Giant's Loom, Giant's Organ, Lady's Fan and so on. East of the causeway proper Is the ~tlant's Ampltheater, a small bay with cliffs 350 feet hlglh formed In Its upper part of two tiers of basaltic columns from 60 to 80 feet in height. Beyond tits Is Spanish bay, the scene of the wreck of an armada vessel; and still farther east the promontory of Pleaskln Head, 400 feet high, with double tiers of lofty columns separated by a band of ochre. The peculiar columnar struc-I ture of the causeway rocks is shown by geologists to result from the conJ traction in cooling of the lava of which they are composed. The Giant's causeway derives Its name from the legend which ascribes Its construction to Finn M'Coul vr FIngal, who bridged the channel be-, tween Ireland and Scotland, in order that the giants might pass from An- trim to Staffs. Perfection of Canning Resulted From Two Wars It Is a melanclmiy fact that many of the peaceful arts either were born of the necessities of war or were gen- erously fostered by them--a circum- stance indisputably true of modern methods of keeping-food from decay. It was two wars, observes the New York Herald.Tribune, that brought ns something like perfection In "canning" --the Napoleonic and the American Civil. Nicholas Appert won a prize of 12,000 francs from the French govern- ment In 1809 for his almost completely novel method of preserving foodstuffs by sterilizing with heat and sealing them In airtight containers, which in his technique were glass. The use of cans began about a hundred years ago, but it was not until the Civil war that they were used to a great extent.

"1 ;i ~ L i I Do you shut out healthful fresh air from your home during winter months by keep- ing all windows tightly closed? You wouldn't consider doing such a thing in summer, now would you ? It is especially important to keep the air of your home fresh and pure during winter. Under the artificial conditions of winter indoor life, heavy demands are made on the oxygen supply of your home. In the first place an adult breathes about 560 cubic feet of air e ,ery 24 hours. In addition to this, the heater in the room takes a large supply of oxygen from the air because fuel will not burn without oxygen. Both the heater and the occupants of the room are consuming the air. Therefore, it becomes doubly important during winter to introduce a reasonable amount of fresh air from the outside so that the air you breathe will be pure as well as warm and comfortable. Incidentally, fresh air is easier to heat than "stale" air. When open flame heaters are used exclusively it is of utmost importance to have adequate ventilation and a circulation of heated air, if healthful conditions are to exist. Proper ventilation should be provided through window openings, and pure warmed,air should be kept circulating through connecting doors of all rooms. America s Public Health Enemy Number One, the common cold germ, finds a fertile field in an inadequatdy heated and poorly ventilated home. Don't gamble witb a "cold"l Consult your family doctor be- ]ore it has ~n opportunity tO utulermine your health. Tune it~ each Thursday night at 6:30, W'FAA.IVBAP, for belp/ul in- .formation item a leading #by- sician that will assist you to guard against the common cold gerra, A simple method of providing a constant circulation of fresh air is to open the window nearest the heater in each room slightly at the top and bottom. This permits fresh, oxygen-laden air to replace the products of combustion caused by breathing and by the fuel burning in the room. The overheated air which rises to the ceiling circulates to other parts of the room and a more healthful air condition is the result. Guard the health of your family this winter with proper ventilation and ade- quately warmed fresh air in every room in the house. It's a simple precaution in combating the common "cold". ...
