NEW MEXtCO SENATOR MAKES
HEATED ATTACK ON "HANDB
SPEAKS FOR THREE HOURS
Senator Shively of Indians in Anlmst
ed Speech Defends the President's
Course in Mexicsn Affairs. —Mexi-
can Outrages Are Enumerstsd.
Washington.—The lid of secrecy
regarding Mexican affairs wan lifted
In the United States Senate by Sena
torKall, Republican , of New Mexico,
who urged armed .intervention for the
protection of Americans and other
foreigners in the stricken republic.
The galleries were crowded to
overflowing and remained so for hours
until Senator Shively of Indiana had
spoken for the administration, ex
pressing regret that the subject had
been discussed In open session and
averring that no adequate solution had
offered fo rthe problem.
Senator frail in a lengthy narra
tion of Incidents of outrages to
Americans In Mexico, held the Inter
est of the senate and galleries for
more than three hours. Assailing the
administration policy as inadequate
and declaring President Wilson knew
nothing about real relations and had
been mistaken In every act of his
administration toward Mexico, the
New Mexico seuator pleaded for Inter
vention for protection to avoid Inevi
Emphasizing the danger of war
with a great foreign power unless
something should be done speedily,
Senator Fall referred to comments In
the German press over the killing of
the British subject, Benton, by order
of General Villa's court martial, and
"When the German official press
says that should a German citizen he
murdered in Mexico, Germany would
not acquiesce like Great Britain, then
I say unto you, senators, there Is Im
minent danger of a conflict between
the United States and this country
with which we should always be at
"I believe the American people can
be left to handle any critical condi

the subject. I am not one who be

interest' to send to this senate details
of outrages on American citizens. I
am not one who believes the Constitu

man allowed to assume the executive
and legislative powers of the govern
Senator Shivley, replying, as acting
chairman of the foreign relations
committee, declared Senator Fall's
policy would mean actual armed in

meant war. He deplored that the
situation thus had been discussed In
the open senate declaring It would

A TOY WINDMILL.
No mechanical toy is more interest
ing to make, ndr more Interesting to
watch when in operation than a min
iature windmill. It is a very simple
toy to construct, and all of the ma
terial that it requires can usually be
found at hand, which are two reasons
why it is one of the most popular of
home-made toys, and why . nearly
every boy at one time or another
Figure 1 shows a small model
which may be constructed quickly.
You will notice by the detail illustra
tions that the hub of the windmill is
a spool (Fig. 2), that the blades are
cut out of cigar-box wood, shingles,
tin, or cardboard, and are fastened to
the side of short spoke sticks driven
Into holes bored in the spool hub
(Fig. 3), that the hub turns on the
rdunded end of a stick shaft (Fig. 4),
that the square end of the shaft 1s
slotted to receive a fan-shaped tail
(Fig. 6), and that the shaft Is pivoted
to the top of a clothes-post, or a post
put up for (be purpose (Figs. 1
Use & large ribbon-spool for the
hub. You can. get one at any dry
goods store. locate eight holes
around the center of the spool, at
equal distances from one another, and

bore these with a gimlet or bit, or cut
them with your jackknlfe.
Cut the eight blades 6 Inches long.
6 inches wide on their wide edge, and
I4 inches wide on their narrow edge.
Prepare the hub sticks about % inch
by % Inch by 4V4 inches in size, and
whittle one end pointed to fit in the
hub (Fig. S).> Fasten the blades to
the spokes with nails long enoogh to
drive through the spokes and clinch
on the under side. Glue the spokes
In the hub holes, turning them so the
blades will stand at about the angle
The shaft Bhould be made of a
hard wood stick about % inch by IVi
Inches by 14 Inches In site. Cut the
round end small enough so the hub
will turn on It freely, and punch a
small hole through it so a brad may
be driven through it to hold the hub
In place. Cut the slot* in the square
end with a saw. Make the tall about
5% inches long, 4 Inches wide at its
wide end, and 2 lnchos wide at its
narrow end (Fig. 5).
The windmill must be pivoted to
the post support at its exact balanc
ing point. Pivot the shaft with a

long nail. Bore a hole through the
shaft a trifle larger than the nail, so
the shaft will turn freely. Place a
waaher between the nail-head and the
shaft, and another between the shaft
and the post support
Figure 6 shows how the power
from the toy windmill may be utilised
to operate a toy Jumping-jack, by sup
porting the jumplng-jack on a bracket
and connecting its string to the hub
of the windmill. Cut the upright of
the bracket (A) 14 inches long and
the cross piece (B) 7 Inches long.
Nail A to B, and nail the jumping-jack
at its center to the end of B (Fig. 7).
Fasten the triangular block (C) to
the lower end of A, and then nail both
A and B to the edge of the shaft at a
point that will bring the string of the
jumping-jack a trifle beyond the" wind
mill blades. Fasten a small stick,
having a brad driven in one end, in
notches cut In the hub's flanges (Fig.

string with a piece of wire or strong
string. Then as thei windmill re

BERRY BOX FURNITURE.
Has it ever occurred to you girls

sofa is completed.
The chair shown In Illustration No.

pint box, which form the back, seat
and front legs, and an extra piece
which forms the back legs. One Bide
piece forms the chair back, and the
other side is scored along its center
with a knife, and bent down to form
the seat and front legs. The rear
legs are made of the extra piece,
which is glued to the chair back.
The little footstool shown in Illus

One side of a pint box is used, and it
is only necessary to score the piece

Evidently French Restaurant Win*
Was Not Exactly the Quality
Ha Had Ordered.
William E. Corey praised at a Pitts
burgh club the wines of California.
"Our California wines," said 'he
steel magnate, "are much better than
wines of a similar - price In France,
for French wines ate so adulterated
today that' even a high-priced one
often tastes like burnt sugar and
"But the line wines, the 'grand cru'
wines are wonderful," a young banker
Mr. Corey shook his head.
"Not always," he said "A friend
of mine, a gourmet with whom 1
lunched not long ago at a fashionable
boulevard restaurant in Paris, ordered
a bottle of very old celebrated Mar
gaux. Pouring out a little of the wine
and rolling it on his tongue In true
gourmet fashion he made a wry face.
"'Waiter;' he demanded. 'What
wine is this you brought me?*
" 'lt is what monsieur ordered.' was
the reply. Margaux 1895, grand cru.'
" 'Humph,' sneered my friend, 'how
lucky it is to be so old and to conceal
its age so well.'"
Testing Nephew's Knowledge.
There is a certain old German of
Wilkesbarre, Pa., whose pride, like
that of many self-made men, leads him
at times into a sort of patronising con
descension toward those things he did
not "have tiiye for" when he was mak
ing his way in life.
Upon the occasion of the graduation
of a nephew, he asked:
"Veil, Wllhelm, vot did dey teach
you up there?"
"Creek and said the boy,
"and German and algebra."
"So, so!" murmured the old Ger
man. "And vot's der algebra for po
tatoes, now?" —Youth'B Companion.
